Rahul Gandhi Targets PM’s “Blue-Eyed Boy” For Diluted Vijay Mallya Notice


“CBI Jt. Director, AK Sharma, weakened Mallya’s “Look Out” notice”, Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

New Delhi: 

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday alleged that it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “blue-eyed boy” in the CBI who weakened the lookout notice against fugitive tycoon Vijay Mallya and allowed him to flee the country.

In a tweet, Mr Gandhi alleged that it was AK Sharma, a Gujarat-cadre officer in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who played a crucial role in weakening the lookout notice against Vijay Mallya. He also alleged that the same officer played a key role in the escape plans of fugitive diamond traders Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi.

“CBI Jt. Director, A K Sharma, weakened Mallya’s “Look Out” notice, allowing Mallya to escape. Mr Sharma, a Gujarat cadre officer, is the PM’s blue-eyed-boy in the CBI. The same officer was in charge of Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi’s escape plans. Ooops…investigation”, he wrote on Twitter. 

Congress has accused PM Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of “helping” Vijay Mallya flee the country after defaulting on bank loans. The Congress has demanded Arun Jaitley’s resignation over the issue and a probe into how Vijay Mallya escaped.

 

 

The 62-year-old tycoon, who is on bail on an extradition warrant since his arrest in April last year, is fighting extradition to India on charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs 9,000 crore.

Mr Gandhi’s tweet came days after Vijay Mallya claimed that he had met Arun Jaitley before leaving the country in March, 2016.

“I met the finance minister before I left,” the liquor baron had told reporters Wednesday outside the Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London, where his extradition case is being heard.

Arun Jaitley has, however, denied the charges against him.

Madhya Pradesh: For the first time, a PMs attendance at Syednas program, look at the next election


खास बातें

  1. पीएम के आने पर धर्मगुरु सैयदना मुफद्दल सैफुद्दीन ने प्रवचन रोका
  2. मोदी ने वजू करके मस्जिद में प्रवेश किया, सैयदना ने गले लगाया
  3. कांग्रेस ने की पीएम मोदी को काले झंडे दिखाने की कोशिश

इंदौर: दाऊदी बोहरा समुदाय के मौजूदा सर्वोच्च धर्मगुरु सैयदना मुफद्दल सैफुद्दीन मोहर्रम के मौके पर ‘वाज़’ यानी प्रवचन देने, मध्यप्रदेश के इंदौर आए हैं. राज्य सरकार ने सैयदना को राजकीय अतिथि का दर्जा दिया है. सैयदना से मिलने प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी भी पहुंचे. प्रदेश में होने वाले आगामी विधानसभा चुनाव से पहले प्रधानमंत्री के इस कदम को राजनीति से जोड़कर भी देखा जा रहा है.

कांग्रेस की कोशिश अपने अध्यक्ष राहुल गांधी को भी इस मंच पर लाने की है. वैसे आज इंदौर में कांग्रेसियों ने मोदी को काले झंडे दिखाने की पुरजोर कोशिश की.

     

प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी इंदौर पहुंचे, गाड़ी में जूते उतारे मस्जिद में जाने से पहले वजू किया. सैयदना ने भी वाज़ रोका और प्रधानमंत्री को गले लगाया. मुख्यमंत्री और प्रधानमंत्री दोनों सैयदना के बगल में कुर्सी पर बैठे. फिर प्रधानमंत्री ने कहा ‘अशरा मुबारक के इस पवित्र अवसर पर भी आपने मुझे यहां आने का मौका दिया, इसके लिए बहुत आभार. मुझे बताया गया है कि टेक्नालॉजी के माध्यम से देश और दुनिया के अलग-अलग सेंटर्स से भी समाज के लोग जुड़े हैं, आप सभी का भी मैं अभिनंदन करता हूं.’

           

हज़रत इमाम हुसैन की शहादत की याद में दाऊदी बोहरा समुदाय द्वारा आयोजित अशर-ए-मुबारका कार्यक्रम में पीएम मोदी के साथ मध्यप्रदेश के मुख्यमंत्री शिवराज सिंह चौहान भी शामिल हुए. इस अवसर पर शिवराज सिंह चौहान ने कहा कि पीएम मोदी लगातार, बिना रुके देश की तरक्की के लिए काम कर रहे हैं. उन्होंने कहा कि बोहरा समाज ने महिलाओं-बच्चों के लिए बहुत काम किया है. शिवराज सिंह ने कहा कि दाऊदी बोहरा समाज अपनों से प्यार और दूसरों की मदद करने में आगे है.

बोहरा’ दरअसल गुजराती शब्द ‘वहौराउ’ यानी ‘व्यापार’ का अपभ्रंश है. यह समुदाय मुस्ताली मत का हिस्सा है, जो 11वीं शताब्दी में उत्तरी मिस्र से धर्म प्रचारकों के माध्यम से भारत में आया था. फिलहाल देश में बोहरा समुदाय की कुल आबादी लगभग 20 लाख है, जो ज्यादातर कारोबारी हैं.


बोहरा समुदाय की बड़ी आबादी गुजरात में रहती है इसलिए प्रधानमंत्री ने अपने उद्बोधन में कहा ‘बोहरा समाज के साथ मेरा भी रिश्ता बहुत ही पुराना है. मेरा सौभाग्य है कि आपका स्नेह मुझ पर हमेशा रहा. गुजरात का शायद ही कोई गांव हो जहां बोहरा व्यापारी नहीं मिलता हो. मैं जब मुख्यमंत्री था तब कदम-कदम पर बोहरा समाज ने साथ दिया. आपका यही अपनापन मुझे आज यहां खींच लाया है. चूंकि बोहरा बड़े कारोबारी भी हैं, इसलिए प्रधानमंत्री ने कहा देश का व्यापारी और कारोबारी अर्थव्यवस्था की रीढ़ है. वो देश में रोजगार पैदा करने वाली महत्वपूर्ण इकाई है. उसको जितना प्रोत्साहन संभव है, दिया जा रहा है. लेकिन ये भी सच है कि पांचों उंगलियां एक समान नहीं होतीं. हमारे बीच से ही ऐसे लोग निकलते हैं जो छल को ही कारोबार मानते हैं.’

मध्यप्रदेश में विधानसभा चुनावों से पहले इस मुलाकात के सियासी मायने भी हैं, वैसे वोटों के लिहाज़ से मध्यप्रदेश में बोहरा समुदाय की प्रभावी मौजूदगी महज़ तीन शहरों- इंदौर, उज्जैन और बुरहानपुर में ही है, लेकिन बीजेपी और कांग्रेस के लिए बोहरा समुदाय की अहमियत उनके वोटों से ज़्यादा सैयदना से मिलने वाले चुनावी चंदे की है. हालांकि खास ये है कि पहली बार किसी प्रधानमंत्री ने सैयदना की खिदमत में इस तरह हाज़िरी लगाई है.

टिप्पणियां


इस मौके पर मोदी सरकारी योजनाओं के जिक्र से भी नहीं चूके. उन्होंने कहा कि स्वच्छता भारत अभियान शुरू भले ही सरकार ने किया हो, लेकिन आज इस अभियान को देश की 125 करोड़ जनता चला रही है. गांव-गांव, गली-गली में स्वच्छता के प्रति एक अभूतपूर्व आग्रह पैदा हुआ है. चार वर्ष पहले तक जहां देश के 40% घरों में ही टॉयलेट थे आज ये दायरा 90% से भी अधिक हो गया है.

      

इंदौर की तारीफ में मोदी ने कहा आज हम जिस इंदौर शहर में जुटे हैं, ये तो स्वच्छता के इस आंदोलन का अगुवा है. इंदौर निरंतर स्वच्छता के पैमाने पर देशभर में नंबर वन रहा है. इंदौर ही नहीं भोपाल ने भी इस बार कमाल किया है. एक प्रकार से पूरे मध्यप्रदेश के मेरे युवा साथी, एक-एक जन इस आंदोलन को गति दे रहे हैं.

हालांकि मंच पर इस स्वागत सत्कार से इतर दूसरी तस्वीर इंदौर के राजवाड़ा से आई जहां कांग्रेस कार्यकर्ता मोदी वापस जाओ के नारे लगाकर उन्हें कालेझंडे दिखाना चाहते थे. हालांकि पुलिस ने उन्हें खदेड़ दिया.

PM’s Office Denies To Share Action Taken In Madhya Pradesh Tendering Scam


The PMO said that the response will be provided after due process. (File)

New Delhi: 

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has declined to share action taken on a letter written by Congress leader Ajay Singh to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging large scale corruption through e-tendering in Madhya Pradesh citing a provision of RTI Act that bars disclosure of “third party” information.

The Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh had in July written the letter to PM Modi asking him to conduct an enquiry into the e-tendering scam of Madhya Pradesh either by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or under the supervision of the Supreme Court.

Anti-corruption activist Ajay Dubey had sought details of action taken report by the PMO on the Congress party leader’s letter.

“It is stated that the information sought by you attracts the provisions of Section 11 of the RTI Act,” it said in reply to the RTI query filed by the activist.

The PMO said that the response will be provided after due process as envisaged in the Section 11 of the Act is completed, it said.

The Section 11 mandates that if a Central Public Information Officer of a department concerned intends to disclose the information, to invite the third party to make a submission in writing or orally, regarding whether the information should be disclosed, and such submission of the third party shall be kept in view while taking a decision about disclosure of information.

The Congress leader had claimed that e-tendering scam is bigger than the ‘Vyapam’, referring to massive irregularities in state government jobs recruitment and selection in medical courses done by Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board or ‘Vyapam’ in Hindi.

In his letter, the Congress leader has alleged that electronic bidding process was manipulated to allow select firms, contractors or individuals to get the government works several crores in lieu of “benefits”.

He claimed that some senior officials of the state government including those at the level of principal secretary, secretary, chief engineer and tender opening authority are involved in the scam.

“The e-tendering scam is referred to massive irregularities in grant of state government procurement and other works through a website developed by Tata Consultancy Service (TCS) and Antares system. Massive irregularities are suspected through internal rigging of confidential data in the scam,” Mr Dubey said.

He claimed senior state government officials are allegedly involved in the scam and doing cover up.

The scam, came to light in May this year, after the Madhya Pradesh State Electronics Development Corporation, which hosts the online platform, officials said the BJP-ruled state government had in June recommended a probe by Economic Offences Wing into the irregularities.

In Pakistan President Election, It’s PM’s Pick vs Opposition’s Chosen 2


Pak Election Commission announced that presidential election will be on September 4

Islamabad: 

Two presidential candidates were today chosen by Pakistan’s warring factions of the Opposition alliance which failed to reach a consensus on fielding a joint nominee, giving an upper hand to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s pick for the post of the President, according to a media report.

Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) Aitzaz Ahsan and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman emerged as the two candidates who will challenge Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Dr Arif Alvi in the election of September 4, Dawn newspaper reported.

The Election Commission of Pakistan had announced on August 16 that the presidential election will be held on September 4 – five days before the expiry of the five-year term of President Mamnoon Hussain.

The failure of the opposition parties to field a joint candidate will virtually provide a walkover to the ruling PTI’s Arif Alvi for the president’s office, the report said.

While Mr Ahsan filed his papers for the presidential election hours before the 12-noon deadline today, a JUI-F spokesperson claimed that Mr Fazl would be the single nominee of the opposition parties, with the exception of the PPP.

The JUI-F chief will submit his nomination papers shortly as the joint candidate of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA), Awami National Party, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party and National Party, the spokesperson was quoted as saying  by the report.

The PPP and the PML-N representatives directly and with the help of mediators remained in touch throughout yesterday in their bid to reach an understanding, but all their efforts failed after the PPP’s refusal to withdraw Mr Ahsan’s name, the report said.

The PML-N’s acting secretary general Ahsan Iqbal, however, said that they had been still making all-out efforts to bring a joint opposition candidate, expressing the hope that the PPP might show “flexibility”.

PTI nominated Mr Alvi as its candidate hours after party chief Mr Khan was sworn in as the 22nd prime minister of the country on August 18.

A dentist by profession, 69-year-old Mr Alvi is one of the founding members of PTI. He served as the party’s secretary general from 2006 to 2013.

Pakistan’s president is elected indirectly by the members of Parliament and the four provincial assemblies.

The final list of contesting candidates will be issued on August 30.

The polling will be held in the buildings of the federal parliament and provincial assemblies.

In Pakistan, the President is considered as a symbol of the federation and head of the state and exercises all powers on the recommendations of the prime minister.

Mr Hussain, elected in September 2013, was a nominee of the PML-N led by jailed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Arvind Kejriwal Says Change PM’s Name Amid Talk Of Renaming Ramlila Maidan


Arvind Kejriwal said that renaming the Ramlila Maidan won’t get the BJP any votes.

New Delhi: 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today joined Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s niece in her attack on the ruling BJP for using the former Prime Minister’s name after his death for political gains. Amid proposals to rename landmarks after Mr Vajpayee, including the reported move to rechristen the iconic Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, Mr Kejriwal expressed his disapproval with a tweet that said that “such an attempt won’t fetch the BJP votes, but changing the name of the Prime Minister might”.

“Changing name of Ramlila Maidan after Vajpayeeji will not fetch votes. BJP should change the name of the Prime Minister to get some votes because people are not voting on his name,” the Aam Aadmi Party chief tweeted.

Both the Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and the mayor of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation Adesh Kumar Gupta have denied any such plan.

Mr Tiwari said there was no question of renaming the Ramlila Maidan and some people are just “trying to create a controversy” around it. “It’s a deliberate attempt to spread lies,” he said.

Ramlila Maidan, about the size of two football fields and just two kilometers from the BJP’s headquarters, has been the go-to place for protests and demonstrations. The address is also popular for the grand Ramlila it plays host to every year.

The centre and several state governments, which appear to be on a renaming spree, have decided to replace the existing titles of landmarks, schemes and dedicate projects to the much-respected BJP leader.

The list of proposals so far includes, Jawaharlal Nehru University’s (JNU) School of Management and Entrepreneurship, the Bundelkhand Expressway, – expected to be called as ‘Atal Path’– Chhattisgarh’s upcoming capital Naya Raipur which will be known as Atal Nagar. A ghat along the Sabarmati River in Gujarat and the AIIMS Rishikesh auditorium could also see a name change.

However, Karuna Shukla, Mr Vajpayee’s niece, doubts their intentions. She criticised the way “the BJP was carrying around Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes around the country. “It is a show-off and they are doing it for votes. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and his cabinet never remembered him until now, especially when he had created the state.”

Ms Shukla, a former BJP MP from Janjgir-Champa in Chhattisgarh, quit the party ahead of 2013 assembly elections in the state, and joined the Congress in 2014.

“In the past 10 years, the BJP never thought of Atal ji and now, in view of assembly polls in four states, the party is trying to cash in on his death,” she alleged.

But the BJP was quick to dismiss her outburst and alleged that it was in fact Ms Shukla who was trying to politicise her uncle’s death.

“It is unfortunate… Some people have also pointed out why BJP is taking Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ashes across the country. This is not the first time this has happened…it’s happened with several prime ministers — Nehru’s ashes and Indira Gandhi’s ashes also went to several states,” BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said.

It is not a political opportunity but a mark of respect, he added.

Justice Indu Malhotra On PM’s Remark On Women Judges


PM Modi addressed the nation from the Red Fort in Delhi on India’s 72nd Independence Day

New Delhi: 

The presence of three women judges in the Supreme Court — a first since Independence — found mention in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address from the ramparts of the Red Fort today. Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Indu Malhotra have responded with their thanks.

Speaking of the changes the country is witnessing, the Prime Minister said: “Today we are proud that there are three women justices in the Supreme Court… And this cabinet has the most number of women since Independence”.

Television cameras caught Chief Justice Dipak Misra, who was present on the occasion, smiling.

“Very kind of him,” Justice Indu  Malhotra said later when asked about the Prime Minister’s remark. The 62-year-old was the first senior woman advocate to be directly appointed as a judge to the apex court. Before her appointment in April this year, she had practiced law for three decades.

Justice Indira Banerjee, a Madras High Court judge who was recently elevated to the top court, responded with folded hands. The 60-year-old took oath last week along with Justices Vineet Saran and KM Joseph, over whose elevation there was a long-standing face-off between the government and the top court.

Among the three sitting women judges, Justice R Banumathi is the senior-most.  She was elevated to the top court in August 2014.

The first woman judge of the Supreme Court was Justice Fathima Beevi, elevated after her retirement from the Kerala High Court in 1989. She was followed by Justice Sujata V Manohar, also from the Kerala High Court, in November 1994. In 2000, Justice Ruma Pal was elevated to the top court and served for six years.

Justice Gyan Sudha Misra was elevated to the Supreme Court from the Jharkhand High Court in April 2010. The next year, she was joined by Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai. The two judges created history by holding court together as an all-women bench for a day in 2013.

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana: Congress-Era Scheme May Have Helped PM’s Rural Housing Plan Meet Targets


PM Narendra Modi’s Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana or PMAY promised “housing for all”.

New Delhi: 

The claims made by the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government regarding the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) – its flagship scheme for building millions of houses for the underprivileged – may not match the available facts, NDTV has found.

The government had set a target of building one crore rural homes in three years and one crore urban homes in six years.

At an event in Lucknow on July 28 to mark the third anniversary of the government’s urban development schemes, including the PMAY, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that they have “sanctioned 54 lakh” urban homes, and have “handed over” 1 crore rural homes.

But official data suggests that figure cited by the Prime Minister for rural homes is off the mark – only about 43 lakh houses had been completed by the end of July, according to the Ministry of Rural Development’s website.

pectlscc

PM Narendra Modi said last month that the centre has “handed over” 1 crore rural homes.

To meet the scheme’s ambitious target of one crore houses in three years, the government should have completed almost twice that number – 77 lakh houses – by July.

After NDTV aired a report that pointed out the fact, the Ministry of Rural Development sent a clarification saying that the “honourable Prime Minister’s statement about completion of 1 crore rural houses is factually correct.”

They claimed that the one crore estimate included the number of houses completed not just under PMAY, but also a Congress-era scheme, the Indira Awas Yojana (IAY).

PMAY replaced IAY in 2016-17, as a bigger, better-funded version of the Congress scheme.

“…a total of 1.07 crore rural houses have been completed over the last four years (2014-15 and 2017-18) which include completion of 38.2 lakh PMAY-G houses and 68.64 lakh IAY houses that were sanctioned in 2014-15 and 2015-16 and prior to that,” the statement said.

However, the figure cited by the Prime Minister for urban houses – 54 lakhs sanctioned – only pertains to those sanctioned under PMAY, and does not appear to include data from previous urban housing schemes.

l9i3mn6s

PMAY replaced IAY in 2016-17, as a bigger, better-funded version of the Congress scheme.

Ironically, the inclusion of IAY to pad up the success rate of the PMAY raises questions of the effectiveness of the NDA scheme.

By the government’s own data, the completion rate under IAY for its last three years from 2013-14 to 2015-16, was around 85 per cent compared to the completion rate of around 57 per cent for PMAY-Rural.

The urban arm of the PMAY scheme seems even further away from meeting targets. At the moment only 8 lakh urban houses have been completed, only around 20 per cent of what should have been ready by now.

“This scheme (PMAY – Urban) has completed three years. It takes 12-15 months to identify, 12-15 months to get the technology, and then the construction begins… I say this with full responsibility as the minister in the council that the sanctioning part will be over by 2019 end,” said Hardeep Singh Puri, the minister of housing and urban affairs.

In Victory Speech, Imran Khan Says “Ashamed”, Won’t Stay In PM’s House


Pakistan election results: Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-E-Insaaf or PTI has established a huge lead

New Delhi: 

The sprawling homes of Pakistan’s Prime Minister will be dedicated to the people and turned into an educational institution. The official residences of Governors will be part of the sweeping austerity measure — they will be turned into hotels or any other revenue-generating venture and the proceeds to go towards lifting the economy, said Imran Khan in a victory speech this evening even before the results of yesterday’s elections were announced.

“I feel ashamed that I will be staying in the Prime Minister’s palace. I will stay in a smaller house,” Mr Khan said, writing off the sprawling mansion where the heads of state have been living since 1970s.  “My promise to you is to fix public spending, end the economic crisis,” he added.

The chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, which is set to emerge as the single largest party in Pakistan — though short of absolute majority in the 272-member national assembly — chalked out his goals in a half-hour victory speech this evening amid allegations of blatant rigging by other parties.

The 65-year-old former cricketer, who came to power after what he called 22 years of struggle, pitched for development, stability and improvement of the country’s economy. “I pledge today that my policies will not be for the elite but the oppressed, the underprivileged and the minorities,” he said.

The economy, he said, is the biggest challenge Pakistan faces. As the head of the government, he said he would improve governance, improve on the ease of doing business and get Pakistani nationals living overseas to invest in the country.

Holding up the example of closest ally China, he said the country has managed to drag enormous numbers of people out of poverty over the last 30 years.

Pakistan went to polls yesterday in a rare democratic transition of power in its coup-studded history. It was the second civilian transfer of power. The army, which ruled the nuclear-armed nation for most of the last 70 years, still sets its security and foreign policy.
