Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Kept Congress Out Of UP Alliance To Correct Math: Akhilesh Yadav


Akhilesh Yadav said that the SP-BSP alliance seat-sharing is “final” and Congress can only get 2 seats

Kolkata: 

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has said that despite his “immense respect” for Congress president Rahul Gandhi, the grand old party was kept out of the Samajwadi Party-BSP alliance in Uttar Pradesh for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections to correct the “poll arithmetic” in order to defeat the BJP.

Without ruling out the possibility of working with the Congress after polls, Akhilesh Yadav said he has good relations with the party and would be “happy” if the next prime minister was from his home state.

Asked if the Samajwadi Party was open to working with Congress after the polls, Akhilesh said, “We can’t answer it right now. We will answer it after the elections. But I can say this much that the country wants a new prime minister and it will have one after polls”.

Akhilesh Yadav gave an interview to news agency Press Trust of India during his visit to Kolkata for the January 19 united opposition rally.

“If you take out the number of seats (in Lok Sabha) representing Uttar Pradesh, you will notice that the BJP government doesn’t have the majority. BJP keeps talking about social engineering. So, I also decided to correct my poll arithmetic and did it through this alliance,” Akhilesh Yadav said.

Akhilesh Yadav said that despite carrying out a lot of developmental work during his tenure as Uttar Pradesh chief minister, he lost the 2017 assembly elections as his poll arithmetic was not right.

“So, I decided to correct the arithmetic by taking along Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal and left two seats for the Congress,” he said.

The Samajwadi Party and the Congress had joined hands in the 2017 assembly poll in UP but lost to the BJP.

“In order to correct the arithmetic of UP and defeat BJP it (SP-BSP alliance) has been done. Should we lose seats (to BJP) just to pacify others?” he questioned.

Left out of the SP-BSP pre-poll tie-up in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress has announced that it would go it alone in all the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the state for the upcoming general election.

Congress’ decision to contest in all the 80 seats came in the backdrop of SP and BSP announcing their alliance in Uttar Pradesh, sharing 38 seats each, leaving the two seats of Rae Bareli and Amethi for UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, respectively.

When asked whether keeping Congress out of the opposition alliance would dampen the prospects of opposition in the politically crucial state, Akhilesh Yadav said, “With this seat adjustment, we have further strengthened the opposition unity. We have kept two seats for Congress. Our relationship with Congress has always been good. The issue of relationship is different. The main issue is how to defeat BJP and I have worked towards that arithmetic”.

Akhilesh Yadav had earlier said that the Samajwadi Party’s alliance with BSP and the RLD was “final” and there would be no issues as regards seat-sharing in the Lok Sabha polls, while ruling out any understanding with the Congress.

“We have left two seats for them. Now, they (Congress) have decided to fight in 78 other seats. If they want to fight it is up to them. We have nothing to say about it,” he said.

When asked if the alliance would field candidates in the changed scenario as the Congress has decided to contest in all the 80 seats, he said SP-BSP will not do so in Rae Bareli and Amethi.

Akhilesh Yadav, however, maintained that keeping Congress out of alliance and giving them just two seats will not have any impact on the opposition vote share in the polls.

When asked to comment on Rahul Gandhi’s remarks that he has “tremendous respect” for the leaders of Samajwadi Party and BSP, Akhilesh Yadav said that he also has immense respect for Rahul Gandhi.

“Anybody from any part of the country can become the next prime minister. But it would be good if the next PM is from Uttar Pradesh because there is a notion that those who want to become PM fights from UP or increases its tally from this state,” he said.

Asked who is his first choice as PM – BSP chief Mayawati or Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee – Akhilesh Yadav refused to give a direct reply and said efforts should be made to elect a new prime minister and some issues can be discussed after the polls.

Akhilesh Yadav, however, sounded confident that regional parties which have come together at the January 19 Brigade Parade Grounds rally here organized by the Trinamool Congress would stay together even after the polls.

Donald Trump Had Conversations On Moscow Luxury Tower Till US Elections


Donald Trump’s then personal lawyer Michael Cohen had spearheaded negotiations with Russia.

Washington: 

US President Donald Trump had conversations about a proposed project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, far later than previously acknowledged, his lawyer said Sunday.

Trump’s conversations with his then personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, who was spearheading the negotiations in Moscow, continued throughout the year until October or November 2016, Rudy Giuliani said.

“It’s our understanding that they went on throughout 2016 — there weren’t a lot of them, but there were conversations,” the former New York mayor said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“Can’t be sure the exact dates, but the president can remember having conversations with him about it,” he said.

Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison for an assortment of felonies, has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in 2017 when he testified that the negotiations had ended by January of 2016.

In fact, he later admitted, they had gone on much longer, until June of 2016, when Trump had become the presumptive nominee of the Republican party.

The latest disclosure extends that timeline right up to the presidential elections in November.

The Trump Tower project has been a subject of scrutiny because Trump had denied any business dealings with the Russians.

He has since acknowledged that Cohen pursued a deal with the Russians well into 2016, but has insisted there was nothing wrong with seeking business opportunities while running for office.

Giuliani said Trump had fully answered questions about the Trump Tower project put to him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with a Russian effort to sway the 2016 elections in the Republican’s favor, as well as possible obstruction by the president.

Giuliani portrayed Trump’s role in the Moscow negotiations as that of a passive participant who was too busy running for president to pay much attention to it.

“It was Michael Cohen driving the project,” he told CNN in a separate interview on its “State of the Union” show.

Candidate Trump, he said, was “tied up 18 hours a day with that (the campaign). If he could devote a minute a day to this, it would be a lot. A minute here, a minute there.

“Your recollection of that is not going to be as strong. The guy running it is going to remember it,” he said.

Cohen is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight Committee on February 7.

Lok Sabha Elections 2019: BJP Will Win 27 Lok Sabha Seats In Madhya Pradesh: Shivraj Chouhan


New Delhi: 

Don’t think ‘‘mama” has become weak, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who lost power in the recent assembly elections, said on Sunday and claimed the BJP will win at least 27 out of the 29 Lok Sabha seats in the state.

Congress may have formed government in the state but it could fall “anytime as it lacks majority”, Mr Chouhan, who is also called ”mama” or uncle, said at ”Yuva Vijay Sankalp Maharally” of Delhi BJP’s Yuva Morcha.

“Don’t think mama has become weak. I promise you that we will win at least 27 seats, as we did in 2014, out of the 29 Lok Sabha seats, in the coming elections,” said the senior BJP leader.

Hitting out at Congress government in Madhya Pradesh, Mr Chouhan claimed BJP could also have formed a “lame” government too but it decided it would do so only with a grand majority.

Mr Chouhan also mocked the gathering of opposition leaders at Saturday’s Kolkata rally as “bhanumati ka kunaba” (marriage of convenience), saying there was no unanimity over a common leader among the parties planning the ”mahagathbandhan”.

“It’s like a wedding without a groom. On the other hand we have a leader in the form of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lead us in the battle ground,” he said.

The ”Yuva Vijay Sankalp Maharally” was the fifth of a series of big rallies held by the Delhi BJP in the last two months, ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.

However, the event saw a not so whelming attendance. Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari warned from the stage that it would be investigated who were the persons leaving the venue during speeches of the leaders.

Delhi BJP Yuva Morcha president Sunil Yadav claimed the event was attended by over 20,000 persons.

“People were coming and going but the chairs were full,” he said.

The Yuva Morcha had planned to torch 40-feet effigies of Congress president Rahul Gandhi and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal but the plan was shelved in view of poor air quality in the city, Mr Yadav said.

The rally was attended by many senior BJP leaders including union minister Vijay Goel who attacked Mr Kejriwal, alleging that his government in Delhi has “destroyed” the city.

Jaibhan Pawaiya, Lok Sabha election co-incharge of Delhi BJP, asked students to sharpen their arguments to face the challenge of being mocked on the slogan of “Achhe Din” by the opponents and counter it with achievements of the Modi government.

Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Those Who Left AAP Were Opportunists: Arvind Kejriwal


Senior AAP leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also attended the rally (File)

New Delhi: 

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday hit out at those who recently left the party, calling them “opportunists” who were greedy for posts and tickets.

Mr Kejriwal, who launched his party’s campaign for upcoming Lok Sabha polls in Punjab by addressing a rally, also attacked the Congress-led state government and said it had “betrayed” people as it failed to deliver on its poll promises.

Senior AAP leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and the entire state unit leadership, including Harpal Cheema and Aman Arora, also attended the rally.

“Some people left AAP few days back. Our political opponents started saying AAP has begun to disintegrate. Nobody in the country has the courage to disintegrate the party,” he said.

“Congress, Akali Dal and BJP have tried their best in the last five years to weaken the party but God has been with us,” the AAP national convenor said.

“Those who have left AAP were not worthy of staying in the party.They were opportunists and were greedy for tickets and posts. They tried to break the party. God wielded the broom and all bad persons are now out,” Mr Kejriwal said.

Two rebel AAP leaders from Punjab — Bholath MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira and Jaitu MLA Baldev Singh, besides senior lawyer HS Phoolka, have quit the party this month. Mr Khaira was suspended from the party in November last for indulging in “anti-party activities”.

Mr Kejriwal accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the centre of creating hurdles in development works in the national capital and trying to kill him.

“The Modi government tried to not allow us to run the government in Delhi. We want to build hospitals, schools but they continued to create hindrance in our efforts. But we fought them and did good work,” he said.

“I have been attacked four times in last two years. Have you ever heard of any chief minister being attacked? They conspired to kill me,” he claimed.

Slamming Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, Mr Kejriwal said the former had not honoured any of the pre-poll promises, including those of farm loan waiver, raising pension and distributing smart phones.

“Two years ago, you ensured the victory of Captain sahib (Amarinder Singh) with a huge majority. They had filled forms for giving you jobs. I want to ask you to raise your hands if anybody here has been given a job yet. Not even a single job has been given by the state government,” the AAP leader said.

“Two years have passed. Captain betrayed people,” Mr Kejriwal said.

The Delhi chief minister also accused the Punjab government of ignoring the Dalit community, backward classes and poor.

Ramdas Athawale opposition rally PM Modi Mamata Banerjee Lok Sabha Elections 2019


लखनऊ:

केंद्रीय मंत्री रामदास अठावले (Ramdas Athawale) ने विपक्षी दलों पर प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी (PM Narendra Modi) के डर से एकजुट होने का आरोप लगाते हुए कहा कि ये पार्टियां मोदी को बदनाम करना चाहती हैं.  अठावले ने कहा कि कोलकाता में पश्चिम बंगाल की मुख्यमंत्री ममता बनर्जी (Mamata Banerjee) की रैली (Opposition Rally) में तमाम विपक्षी दलों के नेता एकजुट हुए. दरअसल वे सभी प्रधानमंत्री मोदी जैसे सशक्त नेता के डर की वजह से एक साथ आ रहे हैं. ये पार्टियां अनर्गल आरोप लगाकर मोदी को बदनाम करना चाहती हैं.

उन्होंने कहा कि विपक्षी दलों के पास कोई मुद्दा और नीति नहीं है, लिहाजा उनका गठबंधन कोई खास असर नहीं दिखा पाएगा. अठावले ने उत्तर प्रदेश में बने सपा-बसपा के गठबंधन का जिक्र करते हुए कहा कि इससे भाजपा पर कोई असर नहीं पड़ेगा, क्योंकि ये दोनों दल अपने कोर मतदाताओं से एक-दूसरे के पक्ष में मतों का अंतरण नहीं करा पाएंगे.

केंद्रीय मंत्री ने बसपा प्रमुख मायावती पर निशाना साधते हुए कहा कि जब उन्होंने पूर्व में भाजपा के साथ मिलकर सरकार बनाई थी, तब उन्हें भाजपा साम्प्रदायिक नहीं लगती थी. मायावती में अगर नैतिकता है तो उन्हें भाजपा के साथ होना चाहिये था. रिपब्लिकन पार्टी ऑफ इंडिया के अध्यक्ष अठावले ने उत्तर प्रदेश में भाजपा के साथ तालमेल करके लोकसभा चुनाव लड़ने की इच्छा जताते हुए कहा कि राज्य में 12 प्रतिशत दलित मतदाता उनके साथ हैं. अगर भाजपा प्रदेश में उनकी पार्टी को साथ ले तो वह बसपा को नुकसान पहुंचा सकती है.

Lok Sabha Elections 2019: My Actions Against Corruption Infuriated Some


Silvassa: 

Senior leaders of opposition parties were not done with their speeches at the mega rally called by Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata today when Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during a tour of Silvassa in Dadra and Nagar Haveli, trained his sight at them and pulled the trigger.

“My actions against corruption have infuriated some people. It’s but natural for them to get angry as I’ve prevented them from looting public money. Consequently, they have now formed an alliance called Mahagathbandhan,” PM Modi said, even as one after another opposition leaders including Chandrababu Naidu and Akhilesh Yadav criticised his government on a range of issues.

“Those who crushed democracy in their own state are now preaching about saving the democracy. It’s truly ironical,” PM Modi said in Silvassa, where he inaugurated some projects today after attending the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit.

At the massive rally at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee welcomed the opposition leaders and let them speak to the crowd about their plans for the national elections due in May.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu called PM Modi a “publicity PM”. Before him, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy accused the centre of ignoring farmers.

Tejashwi Yadav, son of jailed RJD leader Lalu Yadav, spoke after at least 10 others have given their speeches criticising the government. “Modi-ji is a lie-manufacturing factory. He is also the distributor and wholeseller of lies,” Tejashwi Yadav said.

PM Modi faces a united opposition in the national elections, which will make the fight tougher. His government is keen on keeping farmers happy with measures that could include direct transfers of funds into farmers’ bank accounts and interest-free loans for them. These measures may cost more than Rs 1 lakh crore, a Reuters report said on Friday.

HD Deve Gowda Says People Of Country Will Respond To Modi Government In Elections


HD Deve Gowda also said that the regional parties can form a stable government together. (File)

Kolkata: 

Former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) supremo HD Deve Gowda on Friday said that “people of the country will answer to remove Modi government” in the coming Lok Sabha elections.

He said that all regional parties are banding together to overthrow the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government and lauded West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for taking the initiative in that direction.

“Mamata Banerjee has taken the lead to bring all the parties together and also she is working very hard to throw this government at the national level and bring a secular government. I have watched the struggle Mamata has gone through for this historic decision, the people of this country will respond,” Mr Deve Gowda told the media after arriving at Kolkata’s Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport.

The former Prime Minister further said that the BJP are making “reckless allegations” against Mamata Banerjee to discredit her, adding that those efforts will not help them stop the opposition parties.

He evaded questions on prime ministerial candidate for the ‘Mahagathbandhan’, saying that people will answer and remove the BJP government. 

In reply to questions whether the alliance of regional parties can challenge the BJP without the support of the Congress party, Mr Deve Gowda said: “Ultimately, we have all come together to form the government. We already have a coalition government in Karnataka with the Congress, I am not going to give a straightforward reply to that, we have to form the government in consultation with the Congress”.

He also said that the regional parties can form a stable government together.

“People want a stable government, Modi always says a stable government is one of the answers to have major development and other achievements, but even the regional (parties), which have come together, they have also responded properly to all these cheap allegations. They have given a good government (in the past), I can show examples. Vajpayee was also running a coalition government,” Deve Gowda said.
