Published

on

New Delhi, March 17, 2017: Protesting against the formation of the government in Goa and calling it unconstitutional, Congress MPs stormed to the well in Rajya Sabha today, forcing Deputy Speaker PJ Kurien to adjourn the House.

The ruckus in the upper house of Parliament began after Congress MP Digvijaya Singh raised the Goa issue by accusing Governor Mridula Sinha of inviting the BJP to form the government despite the Congress being the single-largest party.

Digvijaya Singh said, “Sinha had made a public statement of having spoken to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for consultation before inviting Manohar Parrikar to form the government.”

On which Kurien replied that “The Governor’s conduct can only be discussed on the basis of a substantive motion.” Apparently, Parliamentary Affairs Minister MA Naqvi said the government is ready for a discussion “if the Congress brings a substantive motion”.

On Thursday, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar won the trust vote by 22-16 in the in 40-member state Assembly.

However, after the floor test, Congress leader also lamented that money power proved stronger than people’s power finally.

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).

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″.
