PM Modi Lowered Political Discourse To Gutter Level: Congress’s Anand Sharma


New Delhi: 

Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of misusing public money and government podium to spread the BJP’s propaganda and to attack the opposition, the Congress on Tuesday contested the “tall claims” of his government’s achievements.

Strongly objecting to PM Modi using the 15th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Varanasi as a stage for election campaigning, Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma demanded the Election Commission’s intervention.

“No Prime Minister in the history of India holds the record of wasting public money for election campaign. The Prime Minister is the BJP’s chief propagandist and has used his entire tenure for the propaganda of BJP,” Mr Sharma said.

The Congress leader accused PM Modi of lowering political discourse to “gutter level”.

Mr Sharma claimed that Rs 6,000 crore had been spent in “Modi’s propaganda” which included public sector undertakings spending huge money to carry out the government advertisements.

“Modi cannot use public money and resources and facilities that come with the Prime Minister’s office to engage in political propaganda and berating the opposition.

“He is the first Prime Minister who is full of vitriol and ill will against the opposition, particularly the Congress, and has the dubious distinction of dragging political discourse to gutter level,” said Mr Sharma.

Ridiculing PM Modi’s claims of India making rapid progress in all spheres under his regime, he pointed to the slumping economy and questioned why all economic parameters give a contrary picture.

“Instead of making tall claims, Modi must answer why are we losing jobs. Instead of creating them, 1.10 crore jobs have been destroyed because of his policies. Investments have fallen by 7 percentage points and gross fixed capital formation remains in the negative.

“He must answer why exports are slumping and why there is flight of capital if indeed India has made so much progress under him,” Mr Sharma said.

With the post, Katrina has sent a special message to her Zero co-star Anushka Sharma to “put in a small word for her” with the captain of the Indian cricket team. Yes, she means Virat Kohli, whom Anushka is married to. “Pack up ke baad at Bharat sets, as the world cup nears. Anushka Sharma, perhaps you could put in a small word for me with the captain of the team. Some room for improvement in my swing, but overall not a bad all-rounder,” she wrote. The song Apna Time Aayega from Gully Boy plays in the background. While we wait for Anushka’s answer, here’s someone who wants to take Katrina in her team. Actress Preity Zinta, who owns a team in the Indian Premier League (IPL), commented, “Wow, we should hire you.” Katrina soon responded in kind and wrote, “Do it, come on let me play.”

Here’s the video we are talking about.

 

 

Anushka Sharma is currently touring New Zealand with Virat Kohli. Team India will play a five-match ODI series against New Zealand from Wednesday.

Katrina and Anushka first co-starred in the film Jab Tak Hai Jaan, which released in 2012. The film was headlined by Shah Rukh Khan, who also co-starred with the actresses in 2018’s December release Zero.

Bharat is Katrina’s film with Salman Khan. It is currently being shot in Mumbai. Some days ago, Salman also shared a video of himself playing cricket on the sets. Take a look.

 

 

Bharat is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and releases during Eid 2019.

Akhilesh Sharma writes- This weeks Prime Minister candidate – Mamta Banerjee – इस हफ्ते की पीएम उम्मीदवार


वैसे तो ममता बनर्जी बहुत पहले ही पीएम पद के लिए अपनी दावेदारी पेश कर चुकी थीं लेकिन इसकी विधिवत शुरुआत उन्होंने शनिवार को की. कोलकाता के परेड मैदान में एक बड़ी रैली कर उन्होंने अपनी ताकत दिखाई. उन्होंने यह भी दिखाया कि उनके बुलावे पर विपक्ष के वे तमाम नेता एक मंच पर आ सकते हैं जो त्रिशंकु संसद में सरकार बनाने में बड़ी भूमिका निभा सकते हैं. ममता के मंच पर करीब एक दर्जन पार्टियां जुटीं. कांग्रेस और बीएसपी के नुमाइंदे भी आए लेकिन सोनिया गांधी, राहुल गांधी और मायावती दूर रहे.

ऐसी कई पार्टियां हैं जो ममता के मंच से दूर रहीं. तेलंगाना राष्ट्र समिति के नेता के चंद्रशेखर राव, वाईएसआर कांग्रेस के जगनमोहन रेड्डी, बीजू जनता दल के नवीन पटनायक के अलावा इंडियन नेशनल लोकदल, लेफ्ट पार्टियां दूर रहीं.

विपक्ष की दिक्कत यह है कि जैसे-जैसे चुनाव नजदीक आ रहे हैं, हर हफ्ते पीएम के उम्मीदवार बदलते जा रहे हैं. अगर पिछले से पिछला हफ्ता मायावती और अखिलेश यादव के गठबंधन के चलते मायावती की उम्मीदवारी की चर्चा गरम कर रहा था तो पिछला हफ्ता ममता बनर्जी की दावेदारी को. इस हफ्ते पीएम उम्मीदवार कौन होगा, इसका इंतजार करना होगा. दिलचस्प यह भी है कि ममता के मंच पर जुटे लोग पीएम के दावेदार को लेकर चर्चा करने से बचते नजर आए. खुद ममता बनर्जी भी.

बंगाल को लेकर बीजेपी भी पूरा जोर लगा रही है. आठ फरवरी से पहले बीजेपी राज्य भर में बड़े नेताओं की 35 से भी ज्यादा रैलियां करेगी. इनमें पीएम की तीन बड़ी रैलियों की योजना है. उनकी पहली रैली 28 जनवरी को सिलीगुड़ी में होगी. अगली 31 जनवरी को चौबीस परगना के ठाकुरनगर में. आठ फरवरी को वे आसनसोल में रैली करेंगे. बीजेपी अध्यक्ष अमित शाह 22 जनवरी को मालदा और 23 जनवरी को झारग्राम में रहेंगे. नितिन गडकरी, राजनाथ सिंह और स्मृति ईरानी की भी रैलियां होंगी. अमित शाह के हैलीकॉप्टर को मालदा में लैंडिग की अनुमति न देने पर विवाद खड़ा हुआ है. अब इसे एक प्राइवेट हैलीपैड पर उतारा जाएगा. वैसे बीजेपी की कोशिश कोलकाता के उसी परेड ग्राउंड पर एक बड़ी रैली आयोजित करने की है जहां शनिवार को ममता बनर्जी की रैली हुई थी ताकि लोग तुलना कर सकें कि किसे ज्यादा समर्थन मिला.

ममता की रैली पर वित्त मंत्री अरुण जेटली ने भी निशाना साधा है. उन्होंने 2019 के चुनाव को मोदी बनाम अफरा-तफरी बताया. उन्होंने एक ब्लॉग में कहा कि इस रैली में नकारात्मकता हावी थी. पीएम पद के अन्य दावेदार राहुल गांधी, मायावती, के चंद्रशेखर राव इसमें नहीं पहुंचे. मंच पर दो तिहाई वे लोग थे जो बीजेपी के साथ काम कर चुके हैं. कुछ अस्सी पार के नेता भी थे जो अपनी अधूरी इच्छाओं को पूरा करना चाहते हैं.

साफ है कि बीजेपी के मिशन 2019 में दो बड़ी चुनौतियां फिलहाल साफ दिख रही हैं. एक उत्तर प्रदेश है तो दूसरी बंगाल. बीजेपी दोनों जगहों पर पूरी ताकत लगा रही है. बीजेपी अध्यक्ष अमित शाह का दावा है कि पश्चिम बंगाल में बीजेपी 20 से भी ज्यादा लोकसभा सीटें जीतेगी. बीजेपी तृणमूल कांग्रेस को तोड़ने में भी अपनी ताकत लगा रही है. उधर, पिछले चुनाव में 42 में से 34 सीटें जीत चुकीं ममता बनर्जी का लक्ष्य सभी सीटें जीतने का है ताकि वे प्रधानमंत्री पद की अपनी दावेदारी मजबूत कर सकें.

AAP Leader Preeti Sharma Menon Says, Party Not To Contest Lok Sabha Polls In Maharashtra


We will devote all our strength on the seats where we are certain we can defeat them: Preeti Sharma Menon

New Delhi: 

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said “as of now” it has decided not to contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra.

The party will fight Lok Sabha polls in four states – Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Goa. But, it has decided not to contest in Maharashtra, AAP’s national spokesperson Preeti Sharma Menon said today.

“As of now, we are not contesting any seat in Maharashtra, but the party may take a view on a few seats if we feel it will help defeat the BJP,” she said.

The party wants to save democracy from the “clutches” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, so “we will devote all our strength on the seats where we are certain we can defeat them,” Ms Menon said.

However, former AAP leader Mayank Gandhi said the decision shows the party is “dead” in Maharashtra, which has 48 Lok Sabha seats – the second highest number after Uttar Pradesh which has 80 parliamentary constituencies.

“Encouraging the worst kind of leadership at the behest of volunteers destroyed AAP”s ethos and soul. Only self-seeking people are left in the party now,” he claimed.

Mr Gandhi said if the Arvind Kejriwal-led party, which rules the Delhi Assembly, contests in Maharashtra, it may not even get a few thousand votes and become a “laughing stock”. Notably, the party had drawn a blank in the state in the 2014 general elections.

Dissident AAP leader Ravi Srivastava, who was one of its founder members, said the party”s position in Maharashtra was quite “weak”, so it was a wise decision not to contest the Lok Sabha polls in the state.

“The AAP fared very badly in the recent Assembly polls in Hindi heartland states. It couldn”t garner more than the NOTA (none of the above option for voters) votes polled. The party has miserably failed to expand its base outside Delhi and even its MPs and MLAs are quitting. So, it is a wise decision,” he said.

Since the last two years, AAP has suffered a setback in Maharashtra after its prominent leaders like Mayank Gandhi and Anjali Damania left the party. Its state executive committee was also disbanded sometime back

Jessica Lal Murder Convict Manu Sharma Moves Delhi High Court Seeks Premature Release


Manu Sharma was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Jessica Lal in 1999. (File)

New Delhi: 

The convict in the Jessica Lal murder case, Siddhartha Vashishta, also known as Manu Sharma, has moved the Delhi High Court, seeking premature release from prison.

The move comes a month after the court ordered the forthwith release of former Youth Congress leader Sushil Kumar Sharma, who had served over 23 years in prison for the murder of his wife Naina Sahni in 1995.

The high court on December 21 last year, ordered Sushil Sharma’s premature release after quashing the recommendations of the Sentence Review Board (SRB), which had rejected his plea to be set free after over two decades of incarceration.

Seeking a similar relief, Manu Sharma, who was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of model Jessica Lal in 1999, has moved the high court.

The matter is likely to be heard on Monday by Justice Najmi Waziri.

Manu Sharma, 43, in his plea filed through advocate Amit Sahni, has sought setting aside of the October 4, 2018 SRB recommendation, rejecting his plea, as well as the December 7, 2018 order of the Delhi government, upholding the board’s view.

The convict has contended that the reports received from several authorities, including the prison, police and social welfare department of the Delhi government, have recommended his premature release from prison.

According to Manu Sharma’s petition, he has served 15 years in jail without remission and over 20 years with remission and therefore, he is eligible for grant of premature release.

Remission is part of a sentence, which is granted to an accused after assessing his behaviour and conduct during his stay in jail and the period of interim bail or parole or furlough. A remission is added to the sentence undergone by a prisoner in jail.

The petition also contends that the high court had, in a PIL on August 3 last year, directed the SRB to strictly act according to its July 16, 2004 order, which had laid down the eligibility criteria for the premature release of a prisoner.

Manu Sharma has claimed that he satisfied the eligibility conditions laid down in the said order, but the board, on October 4, declined to grant him the relief “without giving any cogent reasons”, despite several reports favouring his plea for release.

He has also alleged that the SRB proceedings were not conducted in a fair and impartial manner and were liable to be set aside.

He said the SRB “acted in a biased, unfair and illegal manner” while rejecting his plea for premature release.

Manu Sharma, son of former Haryana minister Venod Sharma, was sentenced to life imprisonment by the high court in December, 2006 for killing Jessica Lal.

The trial court had acquitted him, but the Delhi High Court had reversed the order and the Supreme Court had upheld his life sentence in April, 2010.

Jessica Lal was shot dead by Manu Sharma after she had refused to serve him liquor at the Tamarind Court restaurant owned by socialite Bina Ramani at Qutub Colonnade in south Delhi’s Mehrauli area on April 30, 1999.

Kapil Sharma Compliments PM Modi For A ‘Great Sense Of Humour’. His Response


PM Modi met Kapil Sharma and other Bollywood celebrities at an event in Mumbai.

Mumbai: 

In 2016, comedian Kapil Sharma kicked off a row when he tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in angst-ridden tweets complaining about corruption. Since then, the comedian-turned actor has come a long way in his admiration for the prime minister.

Kapil Sharma was among the many Bollywood celebrities to meet PM Modi at the inauguration of the National Museum of Indian Cinema (NMIC) in Mumbai. Soon after the event, Mr Sharma tweeted: “Respected pm Sh @narendramodi ji,it was nice meeting u n great knowing ur inspiring ideas and progressive views about our film industry and our nation. N sir I must say u have a great sense of humor too! (sic)”.

The prime minister responded to the tweet saying, “When (Kapil Sharma) appreciates somebody’s humour, it sure makes that person happy and I am no exception”.

PM Modi has, in the past, termed humour as the “best healer” adding that “we need more satire and humour” in daily life. “Humour brings happiness in our lives. The power of a smile or the power of laughter is more than the power of abuse or any other weapon,” he had said in January 2017 at the 47th anniversary of Tamil magazine Thuglak. “Humour builds bridges instead of breaking them… And this is exactly what we require today. Building bridges, bridges between people, bridges between communities, bridges between societies,” the prime minister had said.

Asha Bhosle, Aamir Khan, AR Rahman and Parineeti Chopra were some of the other celebrities present at the event.

Watch: Indian Team Arrives In New Zealand, Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma Get Big Reception At Airport


Team India arrived in New Zealand for a tough tour, comprising five One-Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals, starting on Wednesday. Along with the team, India captain Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma reached the Auckland airport amid loud cheers. The first match of five-ODI series will be played in Napier on Wednesday. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video of the team’s arriving in Auckland on Sunday, saying: “Hello #TeamIndia. Auckland welcomes you #NZvIND.”

Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India recently won their first-ever bilateral ODI series in Australia. Earlier, they had won their maiden Test series in Australia in 71 years and 11 attempts after levelling a three-match T20I series 1-1 on a highly-successful tour Down Under.

On the other hand, New Zealand decimated the Sri Lankans at home. They won the two-match Test series 1-0, swept the three-match ODI series 3-0 and won the one-off T20I to end the series on a high.

The home team look in top form with captain Kane Williamson leading from the front. Besides the skipper, seasoned batsmen Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill are also enjoying a great spell with the bat at the moment.

In the recent 3-0 routing of Sri Lanka in the three-match ODI series at home, Williamson led by example scoring 132 runs in three innings with two fifty-plus knocks.

Taylor, 34, finished as the top run-scorer in the ODI series with 281 runs, including a noteworthy 137-run knock in the third and final match in Nelson.

New Zealand opener Guptill accumulated 153 runs in the ODI series with a match-winning century in the first match in Mount Maunganui.

New Zealand have brought together their strongest possible line-up for the ODI series against India.
