Ram Madhav, the BJP General Secretary, today on Saturday stated that there is no threat to the reigning coalition of PDP-BJP in the state of Jammu and Kashmir as both the parties are working in collaboration with one another.

Madhav arrived today in Jammu for chairing a Bhartiya Janata Party legislature meet at the party headquarters.

Madhav, who is also the in-charge for Jammu and Kashmir said, “We will talk to our party legislature and to the two ministers as well who have tendered their resignations”. He further added, “Things would be discussed and deliberations will be held about the latest political developments in the state.”

In the meantime, Mehbooba Mufti, the chief minister for the state is in Srinagar where she is holding a meeting with the party legislators along with the senior ministers so as to discuss the future course of action on rape and murder of the eight-year-old in Kathua.

AAP hits out at Delhi Police over girl’s death at police post, asks Rajnath Singh to fix responsibility

Published

The ruling Aam Aadmi Party said today the alleged suicide of a 17-year-old girl at a police post in West Delhi was a “custodial death” and urged Home Minister Rajnath Singh to fix responsibility of Delhi Police officials on duty there.

Delhi Police is “clearly at fault”, senior AAP leader Atishi Marlena said, questioning why the minor girl was at the Tilak Vihar police post at 1.30 in the night.

“Purely a custodial death and Delhi Police and LG must own responsibility for it,” she said at a press conference.

The girl’s mother was also present at the press conference.

Police said the girl committed suicide as she was afraid of her family members, who were against her friendship with a 21-year-old man. She had reached the police post around 2.30 AM on July 15, where both families were present, they said.

There is disparity in the police version and the AAP claim about the time the girl reached the police post.

The girl told police that she did not want to be with her family as she was afraid.

While police officials were planning to send her to a ‘nari niketan’, a relative of her male friend came there and alleged that he was beaten by the girl’s family.

Around 30 people were present there, according to police.

While officials tried to pacify them, the girl locked herself inside the police post and hanged herself using her ‘chunni’.

But the AAP legislator from Tilak Nagar, Jarnail Singh, claimed the girl and her brother were locked in separate rooms by police due to which she got “scared” and hanged herself.

“Brother of the girl was threatened by the other party at the police post. She protested it after which police locked her up and her brother in separate rooms. Scared and anguished, she hanged herself,” he said.

Singh said, “it is a complete failure and negligence of police. Home Minister Rajnath Singh need to fix responsibility in the incident.”

Delhi AAP women’s wing president Richa Pandey regretted that no concrete action has been taken against the police post in-charge.

Police said a magisterial inquiry is under way and action will be taken after the report is submitted.

Yesterday, sub-inspector Parvesh Kaushik, in-charge of the Tilak Vihar outpost, and woman constable Manmohan Kaur were sent to district lines for alleged negligence.

Assistant sub-inspector Sushil Kumar, the investigating officer, and duty writer head constable K Badhoriya have been suspended.

No trust move: TDP team meets DMK, accuses AIADMK of going back on appointment

Published

By

Chennai: A delegation of Telugu Desam Party today called on DMK leader Kanimozhi here seeking her party’s support to a no-confidence motion proposed by it against the Narendra Modi government and alleged the ruling AIADMK declined to meet it over the issue under pressure from BJP.

The three-member delegation, led by TDP MP C M Ramesh, met Kanimozhi, DMK’s Rajya Sabha member and party chief M Karunanidhi’s daughter, and sought support to the motion to be moved during the coming monsoon session of Parliament.

The TDP, which pulled out of the BJP-led NDA on the issue of special category status to Andhra Pradesh, had moved a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha during the previous Parliament session, but it could not be taken up since the House was not in order.

Ramesh told PTI that they submitted to Kanimozhi a letter from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

Kanimozhi said the DMK supported the TDP’s demand for special category status.

“We have always been with them (TDP). We will continue to support their demand. They are just asking what was promised on the floor of the House,” she told reporters after meeting the TDP delegation.

The TDP MP claimed Chief Minister K Palaniswami and his deputy O Panneerselvam declined to meet them despite having given an appointment, a charge denied by the CM’s office.

Palaniswami’s office told PTI that no such appointments were scheduled. Panneerselvam’s office could not be reached for comments.

“We came to Chennai only after receiving an appointment from the CM and deputy CM, but after coming here we were kept waiting indefinitely,” Ramesh charged.

He alleged that the AIADMK acted as per the directions of BJP.

The TDP has announced it will once again move a no confidence motion in the coming session beginning July 18.

As per directions of the TDP supremo, six teams of the party MPs are reaching out to non-BJP and non-Congress parties and their parliamentary party leaders to seek their support for the motion.

Congress doing to Kumaraswamy what it did to Deve Gowda, I K Gujral and others: Jaitley

Published

By

Union Minister Arun Jaitley today accused Congress of driving Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to desperation, saying it did the same to Charan Singh, Chandra Shekhar, H D Deve Gowda and I K Gujral when they were the prime ministers of governments backed by the party.

Taking a pot-shot at opposition’s effort to stitch a “non-ideological opportunistic” alliance just to “Keep Modi Out”, Jaitley said in a hard-hitting Facebook post that India cannot afford to have ‘bechara’ (helpless) Prime Minister.

He said that in the past few days, “we witnessed” Kumaraswamy baring his emotions with tears, wetting his eyes and declining to accept bouquets and garlands.

Indicating a strain in ties with the Congress, Kumaraswamy recently said he was “not happy” as Karnataka Chief Minister and was swallowing pain like Lord Shiva who drank poison.

He is Chief Minister of the coalition government, wherein Congress is a bigger party.

“He was candid enough to publicly state… Listening to these statements of an Honourable Chief Minister, my memory took me back to the dialogues of the tragedy era of Hindi cinema.

“If this is the consequence of a two-party coalition, what is it that a disparate group of parties with no ideological similarity offer to India?”, Jaitley said.

He further said that non-ideological opportunistic coalitions always get trapped within their own contradictions.

Their only object is survival and not service of the nation, he said, added that longevity of such coalitions too is a suspect.

“If the Prime Minister of such a coalition has to weep before the cameras with an only wish of how to exit from office, it will be a scenario worse than the policy paralysis of UPA II,” Jaitley said in the blog, ‘Is the Karnataka a Preview of what the Congress and the Federal Front Promise for the Future?’.

“The Congress firmly believes that only members of one family can rule India. If anybody else gets a chance, he should be pushed to the desperation of throwing his hands up and weeping publicly,” he said.

The country, he said, has been watching with keen interest the developments in Karnataka in the past two months.

It is “a repeat of what the Congress did to Chaudhary Charan Singh, Shri Chandrasekhar, Shri H.D. Deve Gowda and Shri I.K. Gujral? It is the obvious consequence of a non-ideological opportunistic alliance with no positive agenda. The basis of the negative agenda is Keep Modi Out'”, he said.

Jailtey further wrote that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has clearly demonstrated the advantages of a decisive leadership.

“India’s Prime Minister and his Government has to overcome the challenges that India faces today. He cannot be seen like the Chief Minister of Karnataka as a tragedy king.

“If such a coalition is a cup of poison, why even dream of inflicting it on the nation? The leader of the world’s fastest growing economy cannot be a ‘Bechara’,” Jaitley said.
