“Patil offered me 5 crores and also assured that all the expenses of the election campaigning will be borne by BJP,” Harshvardhan said who represents Aurangabad’s Kannad electorate.

The stress between Shivsena and BJP does not seem to end soon. After a series of jibes and counter-jibes from state leadership of both the parties, now another statement from Shivsena MLA has created a storm.

Shivsena MLA Harshvardhan Jadhav has alleged that BJP revenue minister Chandrakant Patil had offered him money to join BJP. “During one of our visit he had offered money to me and other 25 MLAs of Sena to leave the party and join BJP,” Harshvardhan said.

Harshvardhan was talking to a news portal. “Patil offered me 5 crores and also assured that all the expenses of the election campaigning will be borne by BJP,” Harshvardhan said who represents Aurangabad’s Kannad electorate.

According to Harshvardhan, Patil made this offer during their meet at his bungalow in Mumbai on 27-28th last month.

When asked Chandrakant Patil refused to comment on this matter. BJP Spokesperson Madhav Bhandari told HW News, “These allegations are false and nothing but an attempt to tarnish the image of Chandrakant Patil. Everyone knows what is the trustworthiness of Harshvardhan Jadhav.”  The controversial statement has once again thrown light on the strained relationship of once allies.

The fight is between forces “rejecting democracy” and voices “rescuing democracy”: Congress

“If all charges were to be proved before inquiry as Rajya Sabha Chairman suggests, Constitution and Judges (Inquiry) Act will have no relevance. Don’t muzzle the Constitution”

NEW DELHI: The Congress party has opposed Vice president Venkia Naidu’s decision to reject the impeachment notice against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra. It has termed the current Supreme Court dispute as a fight between forces “rejecting democracy” and voices “rescuing democracy”.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that within hours of 64 MPs submitting the impeachment notice, Arun Jaitley, the Leader of Rajya Sabha, had expressed “naked prejudice” by calling it a revenge petition “virtually dictating the verdict” to the Rajya Sabha chairman on that day.

“If all charges were to be proved before inquiry as Rajya Sabha Chairman suggests, Constitution and Judges (Inquiry) Act will have no relevance. Don’t muzzle the Constitution,” added the AICC media- in-charge.

Mr. Surjewala claimed that Constitutional process of impeachment is set in motion with 50 MPs giving the motion. The Rajya Sabha Chairman cannot adjudge the motion, for he has no mandate to decide the merits of the motion. This is truly a fight between forces ‘Rejecting Democracy’ and voices ‘Rescuing Democracy’.

Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu rejected the notice moved by 64 Opposition MPs for the impeachment of Chief Justice Dipak Misra on Monday claiming the motion lacked substantial facts to hold CJI Misra guilty of misbehaviour.

“BJP se beti bachao”: Rahul Gandhi in ‘Save The Constitution’ Campaign

Congress president Rahul Gandhi launched his party’s nationwide ‘Save the Constitution’ campaign today, aiming to showcase the alleged attacks on the Constitution and Dalits in recent times.

“Modi isn’t interested in the upliftment of Dalits, minorities and women, or in giving farmers fair prices, or in generating jobs. He’s just interested in being Prime Minister,” said the Congress president, as he blamed Modi for rising atrocities on Dalits and minorities, the state of rising rape cases of minors and for farmers killing themselves.

In his address, he mentioned the BJP slogan ‘Save the girl child, educate the girl child’ and said the BJP is now reduced to the slogan ‘BJP se beti bachao’ or ‘Save the girl child–from BJP MLAs’. Gandhi was clearly referring to the fact that two now-ex BJP ministers in Kashmir marched to support rape accused persons and to the fact that a BJP MLA in Uttar Pradesh is a rape accused.

“Ever since the RSS-supported BJP came to power at the centre, the Indian Constitution has been under severe attack, in one form or the other, thereby, denying the marginalised sections of society their constitutional rights,” chairman of Congress’ Scheduled Castes department Nitin Raut alleged in a statement.

The campaign, that was launched from the Talkatora stadium in Delhi today, will continue till April 14 next year – the birth anniversary of Dalit icon BR Ambedkar.
