Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s parliamentary committee today officially nominated Imran Khan as the party’s prime ministerial candidate, according to a media report.

खास बातें

  1. LJP प्रमुख ने कहा- 2019 में प्रधानमंत्री पद के लिए कोई रिक्ति नहीं
  2. उन्होंने कहा- विपक्ष को 2024 को ध्यान में रखकर मेहनत करनी चाहिए
  3. मोदी सरकार की उपलब्धियां आजादी के बाद से किसी भी सरकार से अधिक

चंडीगढ़/नई दिल्ली: केंद्रीय मंत्री रामविलास पासवान ने कहा कि 2019 में प्रधानमंत्री पद के लिए कोई रिक्ति नहीं है. विपक्ष को 2024 को ध्यान में रखकर मेहनत करनी चाहिए. सत्तारूढ़ राजग में सहयोगी लोकजनशक्ति पार्टी (LJP) के प्रमुख पासवान ने कहा कि नरेंद्र मोदी सरकार की पिछले चार वर्षों की उपलब्धियां स्वतंत्रता के बाद से किसी और सरकार की उपलब्धियों से अधिक है. रामविलास पासवान ने दलित मुद्दे पर भी विस्तार से बोला.

उन्होंने स्वीकार किया कि सरकार के साथ पहले दलित मुद्दे पर धारणा को लेकर समस्या थी, लेकिन उसे दुरुस्त कर दिया गया है. केंद्रीय उपभोक्ता मामलों, खाद्य एवं सार्वजनिक वितरण मंत्री ने राजग सरकार को ‘गरीब, दलित और किसान समर्थक’ बताया. पासवान ने राजग के सहयोगी के तौर पर उनके अनुभव और 2019 के चुनावों में क्या वह भाजपा नीत राजग का हिस्सा बने रहेंगे इस बारे में पूछे गए सवाल के जवाब में ये बातें कहीं.

उन्होंने कहा, ‘मोदी सरकार पिछले चार वर्षों से सत्ता में है और अगर इस अवधि के दौरान इस सरकार की उपलब्धियों को गिनेंगे तो स्वतंत्रता के बाद से किसी अन्य सरकार से इसकी उपलब्धियां बेहतर हैं.’ उन्होंने कहा, ‘प्रधानमंत्री पर कोई आरोप नहीं है. वह साधारण पृष्ठभूमि से आते हैं. 24 घंटे में वह 20 घंटे काम करते हैं. यह सरकार आम आदमी और गरीबों के लिए जनधन योजना, आम आदमी बीमा योजना लाई. इसके अलावा भारत आर्थिक महाशक्ति के तौर पर उभर रहा है.’

उन्होंने कहा कि लोजपा ने उस वक्त राजग का समर्थन किया जब उसके पास सिर्फ दो अन्य सहयोगी-अकाली दल और शिवसेना थे. केंद्रीय मंत्री ने कहा, ‘पिछले दो वर्षों से हम (लोजपा) कह रहे हैं कि 2019 में कोई रिक्ति नहीं है. कांग्रेस और विपक्ष कड़ी मेहनत कर सकता है, लेकिन उन्हें महसूस करना चाहिये कि 2019 में कोई रिक्ति नहीं है. वे 2019 नहीं, बल्कि 2024 के लिए कठोर परिश्रम कर सकते हैं.’

Priyanka Gandhi may replace Sonia Gandhi as Loksabha election Candidate in Raebareli

क्या 2019 में कांग्रेस ले सकती है चौंकाने वाला फैसला, सोनिया गांधी का रायबरेली सीट से लड़ना अभी तक तय नहीं

नई दिल्ली: पूरे देश में ‘वीवीआईपी क्षेत्र’ के नाम से मशहूर हो चुके संसदीय क्षेत्र रायबरेली से लोकसभा चुनाव 2019 में सोनिया गांधी का चुनाव लड़ना तय नहीं है. यह जानकारी सूत्रों से मिली हैं. माना जा रहा है गांधी परिवार की इस परंपरागत सीट से इस बार प्रियंका गांधी वाड्रा भी मैदान में उतर सकती हैं. आपको बता दें कि तीन बार से वह रायबरेली की सांसद हैं और उनकी जीत का अंतर भी काफी ज्यादा ही रहा है. रायबरेली से उनकी सास और पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री इंदिरा गांधी भी चुनाव लड़ती रही हैं. हालांकि बीच में यह सीट दो बार बीजेपी के पास भी रही है. लेकिन सोनिया के राजनीति में आने के बाद से दोबारा इस सीट पर कोई भी पार्टी कांग्रेस को टक्कर नहीं दे पाई. रायबरेली-अमेठी कांग्रेस के इतने मजबूत गढ़ रहे हैं कि जब 2014 को लोकसभा चुनाव में बीजेपी मोदी लहर पर सवार होकर पूरे प्रदेश की 80 में से 71 सीटें जीती थीं तो भी कांग्रेस यहां मजबूत स्थिति में रही है. हालांकि यही दोनों सीटें ही कांग्रेस के खाते में आई थीं. रायबरेली का सांसद होते हुये सोनिया गांधी ने वहां रेल कोच फैक्टरी भी लगवाई है जिससे स्थानीय लोगों को नौकरियां और रोजगार के साधन मुहैया हुये हैं. 

कैंडल मार्च के दौरान भड़कीं प्रियंका गांधी ने कहा- ‘जो लोग यहां धक्का देने आए हैं वे घर जाएं’

लेकिन कुछ लोगों का कहना है कि सोनिया गांधी के इतने साल सांसद रहने के बावजूद भी पूरा जिला, बिजली, सड़क और साफ पानी की समस्या जूझता रहा है. वहीं रेल कोच फैक्टरी लगने से कुछ हिस्से में रहने वाले लोगों का फायदा मिला है. फिलहाल देखने वाली बात यह होगी कि क्या दादी और मां की सीट पर प्रियंका गांधी वाड्रा अपने सक्रिय राजनीतिक करियर की शुरुआत करने वाली हैं. हालांकि साल 2017 में एनडीटीवी से खास बातचीत में प्रियंका गांधी ने खुद को रायबरेली सीट से लड़ने से इनकार कर दिया था. लेकिन बदलते राजनीतिक हालत और समीकरणों के बीच अब प्रियंका गांधी को कांग्रेस मैदान में उतार सकती है.

2019 लोकसभा चुनाव के लिए कांग्रेस की रणनीति​

वहीं कांग्रेस ने 2019 में होने वाले लोकसभा चुनावों के लिए अपनी रणनीति को अंतिम रूप देना शुरू कर दिया है. कांग्रेस सूत्रों की मानें तो पार्टी दो चरणों में अपनी रणनीति तैयार कर रही है जिसका पहला चरण है बीजेपी को हराना. उसके बाद जब एक बार चुनावी नतीजे आ जाएंगे तो संख्‍याबल के अनुसार प्रधानमंत्री पद का उम्‍मीदवार तय किया जाएगा. सूत्रों के अनुसार कांग्रेस का मानना है कि अगर पार्टी RSS की तरह का संगठन बनाएगी तो अपना चरित्र खो देगी. आरएसएस की अपराजेय छवि गलत है और उसे भी हराया जा सकता है. 2004 में भी यही हुआ था.

Andrew Yang, Candidate Running For 2020 US Elections Accepts Cryptocurrency Donations

Washington, US: 

Andrew Yang, a second-generation Chinese American running for the 2020 US presidential race as a Democrat, has announced his acceptance of cryptocurrency as forms of donation, according to Yang’s campaign.

The campaign on Monday announced that it can accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, and anything on the ERC20 standard within a maximum of $2,500, reports Xinhua news agency.

Venmo payments of up to $2,700 are also acceptable.

The campaign has also used other tech innovations including Twitch and Instagram TV to live broadcast campaign events.

Donors will receive a form that will allow the campaign to verify their voter qualifications, after which it will send a cryptocurrency wallet address to allow them to make donations.

Yang, 43, founded the New York-based entrepreneurial fellowship organisation called Venture for America.

He authored a book called “The War on Normal People” which argues in favour of a universal basic income of $1,000 a month for all US citizens between the ages of 18 to 64.

He also opposes artificial intelligence and automation technology.

Yang favours a new type of capitalist economy called “human capitalism” that is geared to maximise human well-being.

Candidate from Imran Khan’s Party Injured, His Driver Killed In Pak Blast

A suicide bomber injured a candidate from the party of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and killed his driver in an attack in northwest Pakistan Sunday, police said, three days before the country’s general election.

Five others were also injured in the blast in the city of Dera Ismail Khan and have been rushed to hospital, local police official Kamal Shah said.

“A suicide bomber blew himself up near the vehicle of Ikramullah Gandapur as he left his house for election campaign,” district police chief Zaheer Afridi told AFP.

“Gandapur was injured along with five others while his driver died on the spot,” he added.

Video footage showed the driver on the seat of Gandapur’s black Land Cruiser as his armed guards rushed to save the injured.

The attack followed a suicide blast in the southwestern province of Balochistan on July 13 which killed 149 people, underscoring continuing security challenges in Pakistan following years of dramatic improvements.

Violence in Pakistan has dropped significantly since the country’s deadliest-ever terrorist attack, an assault on a school in the northwestern city of Peshawar in 2014 that killed more than 150 people, most of them children.

Pakistan’s military intensified operations against terrorists in the tribal areas along the border with Afghanistan in the wake of that attack, leading to improved security.

But analysts have long warned that Pakistan is not tackling the root causes of extremism, and that terrorists retain the ability to carry out spectacular attacks.

Khan is hoping to achieve a years-long dream of becoming prime minister, with recent polls showing his Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party climbing nationally ahead of Wednesday’s vote.
