Amit Shah BJP

New Delhi, July 14:The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has vehemently denied any assurances given by party president Amit Shah regarding construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya before 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The BJP has issued clarification that the report about Shri Ram Janmabhoomi dispute is completely incorrect and the “matter relating to construction of Ram temple was not on the agenda ” in Hyderabad meeting .

 

The IANS agency reported that Shah told a meeting of party leaders in Hyderabad that steps will be taken to clear the decks for launching construction of the temple before the polls.

“Considering the developments, I believe that construction of Ram temple will begin before the coming general elections,” according to IANS ,Perala Sekharjee quoted Shah as saying.

Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board said in the Supreme Court on Friday that it wants to settle the Ayodhya dispute peacefully and is willing to donate one-third of the land granted to Muslims by the Allahabad high court to Hindus for building the Ram temple.

The top court is hearing an appeal whether the Ayodhya matter should be heard by the larger Constitution bench.

Recently, Union Minister Uma Bharati rejected Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s appeal for keeping patience saying that the BJP has governments at the Centre and state and they should take a ‘historical and bold’ decision to begin the temple construction in Ayodhya at the earliest.

National general secretary and lawmaker Anil Jain said his party is committed to five things including revocation of Article 370 which accords a special status to the state.

Listing “Uniform Civil Code, Ram Mandir, the Ganga and cow,” as other subject matters of party’s commitment, Jain said these issues can only be delayed for some time depending on the developing situation in the country.

“I am serious of my words… The BJP is committed to the issues of cow, Ganga, Uniform Civil Code, Article 370 and Ram Mandir. Given the emerging situation, one or the other might take time to get fulfilled,” Jain told reporters

BJP National Executive member Perala Sekharjee briefed the media about the meeting at BJP’s Telangana state unit office.

The BJP chief, who arrived on a day-long visit to Hyderabad on Friday, also told the meeting that the elections will not be advanced .

Journalists Clash

As journalists thronged outside the Narcotics Control Bureau office near Ballard Estate, Fort, Mumbai, the chaos to cover Simone Khambatta ensued into a scuffle.

Videos surfaced across social media platforms where a heated exchange among the reporters resulted in one of them slapping the other. Many tried to sort it out and keep the two parties apart, until the cops intervened.

According to Republic TV reporter Pradeep Bhandari, he was attacked by ‘NDTV and ABP’ goons for ‘speaking the truth’.

Sharing the video on Twitter, he wrote, “Know what is the cost of speaking the truth in Maharashtra? As the well-known faces of the cartel are getting exposed, their anger continues to grow. When the police didn’t do anything, NDTV and ABP goons sent journalists to assault me. But I am not someone who breaks easily.”

NDTV’s Saurabh Gupta denied the claim and said the NDTV crew behaved responsibly.

Fashion designer Simone Khambatta is being questioned by the NCB in their ongoing probe related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Khambatta reached the NCB’s south Mumbai guesthouse on Thursday morning.

As the agency widens their probe in alleged drug procurement by Bollywood personalities, many actors, producers and other members from the film fraternity are likely to be questioned.

The ambit of the probe has now widened from investigating the death of the actor to alleged procurement and consumption of banned narcotics substances.

CMAT, GPAT Exam

The Assam government has excluded lessons on Jawaharlal Nehru’s policies, the Ayodhya dispute and the Gujarat riots among topics from the Class 12 syllabus of the state examination board to “ease burden on students.” The chapters were deleted by the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) to apparently reduce the load by 30 percent on account of loss of academic schedule due to the Covid-19 pandemic. According to officials, topics have been cut short in all the subjects of the three streams- Science, Arts and Commerce.

“The main objective is to reduce the exam stress of the students of the session 2020-21, due to the pandemic and to prevent learning gaps. This syllabi will be the academic portion for the preparation of upcoming final exams of Higher Secondary 1st and 2nd year to be held in 2021,” AHSCE Secretary Manoranjan Kakati said in a recent report. The decision to trim the syllabus was taken on the recommendation of the selected subject experts from various reputed institutions of the state, he said.

In Political Science, Jawaharlal Nehru’s approach to nation-building and his foreign policy, politics of ‘Garibi Hatao’ and the first three general elections have been struck off. The reduced syllabi also excluded the implementation of Mandal Commission report, the anti-Sikh riots of 1984, the central governments under the United Front, earlier regimes of NDA and UPA, Ayodhya dispute, Gujarat riots, famine and suspension of five-year plans. Topics like the cold war, rise of China as an economic power in post-Mao era, conflicts and efforts for peace in South Asia, politics of disarmament, consequences of globalisation and anti-globalisation movements have also been done away with.

The salient features of the National Policy of Education 1986 and the units on women empowerment have been dropped from Class 12 syllabus. In Sociology, the experts have deleted the chapters on the struggle for women’s equality, minority rights and nation building, panchayati raj and challenges of social transformation, globalisation and social change, land reforms, secularisation and tribal movements.

For the History examination, the students will not require to study the Mughal court, Jesuits at the Mughal court, peasants, zamindars and the state, difference and conflict, religious ferment in North India and reconstructing histories of religious traditions. There will not be any material on liberalisation, privatisation, globalisation and industrial development in India.

Likewise, measures of government deficit, foreign exchange rate and determination of exchange rate in a free market and progress of nationalisation of banks and lead bank scheme from Banking were removed, the report said.

In the Swadesh Adhyayan subject, which was introduced in 2018 to study Assam and North East, changes in religious and linguistic demography, population explosion of Assam and the foreigners’ issue have been deleted.

“Like East India Company”: Sharad Pawar’s Party Slams New Farm, Labour Bills

“The BJP government is in a way setting up an East India Company in the country by diluting farm and labour laws and protecting capitalists,” NCP spokesperson Mahesh Tapase said.

Mumbai: Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) today hit out at the Centre over the passage of farm sector and labour reform bills, accusing it of being a “government of capitalists”.

The bills were passed in a hurried manner, said NCP spokesperson Mahesh Tapase.

“The Centre has again proved it is a government of capitalists and not of common people,” he alleged.

“The BJP government is in a way setting up an East India Company in the country by diluting farm and labour laws and protecting capitalists,” he added.

The farm sector laws do not clearly mention minimum support prices and that is why the farmers in northern states are protesting against these reforms, Mr Tapase said.

“The NCP is completely with farmers. (NCP chief Sharad) Pawar himself has said so,” he added.

On labour reforms, the NCP spokesperson said the Union government was bringing in the “hire and fire” work culture of the West.

Talking about Bihar Director General of Police Gupteshwar Pandey opting for voluntary retirement, Mr Tapase said the Election Commission and Department of Personnel and Training should make a two-year cooling off period compulsory before former officials can join politics.

Mr Pandey was under attack from Maharashtra politicians for seeking CBI probe in actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.

“Such officials can join politics after their cooling-off period is over,” Mr Tapase said.

He also demanded that the Centre disburse to Maharashtra its Goods and Services Tax share of ₹ 22,000 crore.

Parliament passed Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill and Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill last week.

On Wednesday it approved three key labour reform bills.
