Rahul Gandhi

This week has seen a major upheaval in Nation’s politics. Earlier this week, the 2G verdict hit the stands which left everyone aghast. The shocking effect of the 2G verdict was still fresh when the news broke that Bombay High Court squashed the sanction by the governor to prosecute former Chief Minister Ashok Chavan in Adarsh Scam. After the two favourable verdicts, Rahul Gandhi seems to be on rebound as his party was so far burdened with the tag of “Corrupt Government”.

The newly elected Congress President did not leave the opportunity and attacked party’s rival BJP calling it a liar. Rahul Gandhi while addressing the media said BJP’s structure is about lies. Unleashing a scathing attack on BJP he said, “The whole architecture and structure of BJP is of lies.” Gandhi who was seen in an aggressive mode said, “Modi’s Gujarat Model too is a lie.”

Rahul Gandhi said during election campaigns they met several people who revealed that “there was no model at all”. He said, “What is going on is just usurpation of natural resources of Gujarat.”

Since taking over as a President of the Grand Old Party, Rahul Gandhi for the first time chaired a meeting of Congress Working Committee. However, his attack did not stop here.

Rahul Gandhi is on a three-day visit to Gujarat. He will be attending a review meeting with newly elected MLAs from his party. However, before beginning the schedule he tweeted with a hashtag #BJPLies. In the tweet, he wittily said that if there would be a film franchise on BJP it would be called ‘Lie Hard’.

His tweet comes days after a news channel ran a story that Rahul Gandhi was watching Star Wars even after losing Gujarat Elections. However, after his tweet, #BJPLies became a top trend on Twitter.

The favourable verdicts definitely have motivated the Congress post-defeat in Gujarat Elections. Next year, six more states are going for elections and the battleground is being readied with attacks and counter-attacks.

New Delhi | The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the functioning of the state government is “completely paralysed” and it can’t order transfer or posting of officers despite the recent Constitution bench verdict on the administration of Delhi.

The bench of Justices AK Sikri and Navin Sinha said it knows everything and the matter will be taken on July 26 since it is not a regular bench.

Senior advocate P Chidambaram who was representing the Delhi government said, “Functioning of the government is completely paralysed. We cannot post officers, we cannot transfer officers despite the recent constitution bench verdict which has explained every aspect. These issues needs to be adjudicated at the earliest.”

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, who also appeared for the Delhi government, said officers are not willing to file an affidavit on this matter and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had therefore filed the affidavit. “I just wanted to clarify the situation.”

Earlier a five-judge Constitution bench including Chief Justice Dipak Misra recently stated broad parameters for the governance of the Delhi which had a constant power tussle between the Centre and Delhi government since the election of Aam Aadmi Party in 2014.
