New Delhi, March 16: The BJP Parliamentary party meeting started here on Thursday.

The meet will be the Bharatiya Janata Party’s first after its massive victory in the Uttar Pradesh and Uttrakhand assembly polls.

According to sources, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah will be felicitated during the meeting for the party’s performance in the five state assembly elections.

“There is no uncertainty about Krishna joining the BJP. It has been put off due to bereavement in his family and unavoidable circumstances, as the party leaders are busy with the formation of the governments in Manipur, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarkhand” asserted the official on the condition of anonymity.

After joining the BJP formally, Krishna was to call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi along with the party’s state unit President B.S. Yeddyurappa and Union Ministers from the state — D.V. Sadananda Gowda and Anantha Kumar.

“We will inform the media when will Krishna join the BJP after we finalise the date in consultation with him and our national leaders in Delhi,” added the official.

Since leaving the Congress after nearly five decades of association after he was “sidelined by its leadership”, Krishna was bidding time to join the BJP but was told to wait, as Shah and Modi were busy with the assembly elections in the five states, especially Uttar Pradesh, and their results.

Yeddyurappa invited Krishna to join the party at the latter’s house here on March 6.

With the BJP securing thumping majority in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarkhand and forming governments in Goa and Manipur, Krishna thought it was the right time to join the BJP and strengthen the party in Karnataka, where the assembly elections are due in April 2018.

Tejashwi Yadav

Patna, April 24: Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday slammed NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant’s statement blaming the state for India’s backwardness, saying the remark has exposed the mindset of “babus” in the Modi-led government.

“Bihar and Bihari’s pay equal taxes, contribute equally or more in govrnance and nation building. Bihar gave 33 MPs to NDA, seven Union Ministers from Bihar, both State and Centre governments are of same party and alliance. But still these Babus say Bihar is backward…” the former Deputy Chief Minister tweeted.

Tejashwi Yadav, who is the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, said that if Bihar was backward especially on social indicators as claimed by then NITI Aayog, then Prime Minister Narendra Modi should grant a special category status to the state for its development.

“Modi has failed to grant special category status or special packages promised by him. Four years have passed, but nothing has happened so far, except ‘jumlas’ (hollow words),” he said.

Tejaswi Yadav said the people of Bihar had been betrayed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government.

While delivering the first Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan Memorial Lecture in Jamia Millia Islamia University, Kant said on Monday: “Eastern part of India particularly states like Bihar, UP, Chattisgarh, MP, and Rajasthan are keeping India backward especially on social indicators. While we have improved on ease of doing business, we have remained backward on human development index.”

Kant further said that India was still 131 out of 188 countries in the Human Development Index (HDI).

New Delhi, April 23: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that earlier slogan was Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao. But Now, PM will say is ‘Beti Bachao, BJP ke logon se bachao’.

Addressing save the Constitution rally, Gandhi said: “In his book “Karmayog”, PM Modi justifies manual scavenging by calling it a “spiritual experience” for the Valmiki community. This speaks volumes about his anti-Dalit mindset.

“The Congress Party will stand together to protect the interests of Dalits and other weaker sections of the society wherever the BJP & RSS attacks them”, he added.

Gandhi further stated “we will never allow the BJP & RSS to destroy our Constitution. The people of India will speak their “Mann ki Baat” in 2019″.

“Our institutions were gifted to us by our Constitution. The Modi Govt is now destroying these institutions by appointing RSS ideologues to occupy important positions”.
