New Delhi, Oct 17 : Accusing the Congress of concocting “falsehoods” to gain power in Madhya Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the party has three chief ministerial aspirants and they were busy pulling each other down.

“The Congress has lost its ground in Madhya Pradesh. They don’t have any agenda for development. It seems, nothing is left for them to oppose us. They have no issues and in the lack of issues they are concocting falsehood.

“The development work by our government has frustrated them and that is why they are talking nonsense,” he said during his interaction with booth-level party workers of Hoshangabad in election-bound Madhya Pradesh.

The Prime Minister also interacted with booth-level workers of Chatra in Jharkhand, Pali in poll-bound Rajasthan, Gazipur in Uttar Pradesh and Mumbai North in Maharashtra through the NaMo App under the programme ‘Mera Booth, Sabse Mazboot’ (my booth strongest).

During his interaction with workers in Hoshangabad, a woman sought to know from the Prime Minister the ways to tackle the Congress’ “falsehood and misleading” election campaign in the state.

Responding to her, Modi said that the condition of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh is that “there are three Chief Minister candidates and all are busy in pulling down each other to become chief minister”.

“Around one dozen other leaders are there who are also aspiring for the post. They are silent but playing games for their turn, waiting if all the three fall. Where there are over a dozen candidates aspiring to become Chief Minister, what will they think about development. They neither have policy nor any intention. They are busy in making strategy based on falsehood. It’s our responsibility to expose them,” he said.

He said that for the sake of opposition the Congress sometimes brings Pakistan’s flyover and uses photographs of Bangladesh as its lacks an agenda to counter the BJP government.

“Sometimes there are fake news and sometimes there are misleading photographs. In fact, Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s government has done so much of development work that the opposition can’t raise their finger at it. It has turned Madhya Pradesh from a “BIMARU state to Bemisal state” (from a sick state to an incomparable state),” the Prime Minister said.

In July this year, Congress veteran and former Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh had posted a photo of a bridge and tweeted that it was the pillar of the overbridge on the Subhash Nagar Railway Crossing. Raising questions on the quality of work, Singh had said that the construction of the bridge was not even complete and cracks can be seen on the pillar. Later, it was pointed out that the cracked pillar was of a bridge in Rawalpindi and an old one at that.

Recently, ahead of Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Madhya Pradesh, state Congress chief Kamal Nath took to Twitter for lambasting the condition of the roads in Madhya Pradesh with a picture showing a man folding the upper layer of a road made up of tar while some bemused kids watched. It was later found that the image was originally tweeted in 2016 by Rifat Alam, a Bangladeshi user, who criticized the Bangladeshi government for the poor condition of the roads.

During his interaction with party workers in Chatra, the Prime Minister also took a dig at Rahul Gandhi without taking his name.

As soon as one of the workers, while putting his question, took his name Rajkumar Sahu, the Prime Minister asked: Are you really a Rajkumar (Prince)? Nowadays, we need to be very careful with “Rajkumar”.

“I am not that Rajkumar born with a golden spoon,” replied Sahu which had the Prime Minister laughing.

Responding to another query of another party worker in Chatra, the Prime Minister highlighted how the BJP government in Jharkhand restarted long-pending infrastructure and welfare projects in the state.

Mentioning how the ‘Statue of Unity’ will spread Sardar Patel’s vision and his contribution to India’s unity to the future generations of the country, he lambasted the opposition for questioning the move.

The interaction concluded with a worker in Ghazipur who sought Modi’s guidance on the strategy for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

“The BJP had achieved the most through the efforts of its hard working and devoted karyakartas and its strong organization,” he said.

Remembering former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, he said that the BJP, which had only two seats in 1984, reached a milestone of 282 seats in 2014.

Changing alliances set the tone for Bihar Polls

The BJP’s Bihar unit President Sanjay Jaiswal says the NDA has jumped into the poll fray with full force. The BJP-led NDA parties were contesting on the sole plank of development.

bihar election

Patna, Sep 23 : Political parties in Bihar are busy chalking out strategies for the Assembly elections which are likely to be held in October-November this year though the Election Commission (EC) has not yet announced the poll dates.

In many cases, parties which were friends during the last elections will now be seen as opponents while foes in the last polls have joined hands.

In the last assembly elections, the BJP and the Janata Dal (United) fought against each other but in this election they are together in the NDA-fold.

The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) is likely to remain in the NDA this time as well but the Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) which was with the NDA during the last elections has severed ties with it. Former Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha’s party RLSP is now part of the Opposition Grand Alliance (Mahagathbandhan) for the forthcoming election.

However, the RLSP and the Vikassheel Insaan Party (VIP) are said to be upset as the seat-sharing formula in the Grand Alliance has not yet been decided.

Former MP Pappu Yadav has also announced to contest this year’s election through the Jan Adhikar Party (Loktantrik). Yadav has not yet aligned with any opposition party.

The BJP is enthused with the JDU coming back to the NDA. The importance of the Bihar elections for the BJP can be gauged from the fact that its National President J.P. Nadda has already reached Patna and is busy reviewing preparations for the polls.

The Left which contested the last elections alone is likely to join the Grand Alliance this time. There have been several rounds of talks between the Left and the RJD on contesting the elections together.

RJD spokesperson Mrityunjay Tiwari said the Opposition grand alliance should expand its outreach. Negotiations were on with many other parties, he added. Asked about the resentment over the seat-sharing formula, he said candidates who could guarantee a win were being selected.

The BJP’s Bihar unit President Sanjay Jaiswal says the NDA has jumped into the poll fray with full force. The BJP-led NDA parties were contesting on the sole plank of development.

In the last Bihar assembly elections, the JDU, the RJD and the Congress had contested together under the Grand Alliance and formed the government with absolute majority. Later, however the JDU broke away from the alliance and formed the government in Bihar by joining hands with the BJP.

Facebook plans drastic measures if US polls descend into chaos: Report

Facebook

San Francisco, Sep 22 : Facebook is bracing for tough measures to restrict content in case the November elections in the US descend into chaos or violent protests, according to a report in the Financial Times on Tuesday.

The plans were revealed by Facebook’s head of global affairs, Nick Clegg, in an interview to the newspaper.

“There are some break-glass options available to us if there really is an extremely chaotic and, worse still, violent set of circumstances,” Clegg was quoted as saying.

Facebook is under pressure to help maintain the integrity of the elections as it has faced criticism for failing to contain the spread of disinformation and hate speech on the platform.

It was even accused of failing to prevent attempts to create divisions in American society through disinformation campaigns by foreign players during the 2016 presidential election.

The stakes appear to be even higher this time with reports of similar attempts to influence the US presidential elections by groups operating from Russia, China and Iran.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg earlier this month announced additional steps it is taking to help secure the integrity of the US elections by encouraging voting, connecting people to authoritative information, and reducing the risks of post-election confusion.

These include measures to attach an informational label to content that seeks to delegitimise the outcome of the election or discuss the legitimacy of voting methods, for example, by claiming that lawful methods of voting will lead to fraud.

Patna, Sep 19 — All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday claimed that wrong policies led to the failure of the Congress and RJD governments in Bihar.

Owaisi was in Patna as the AIMIM entered into an alliance with the Samajwadi Janata Dal Democratic (SJDD) ahead of the Bihar polls.

“We will fight the election under the leadership of Devendra Prasad Yadav, the president of SJDD. We welcome all those parties who want to fight against communalism and communal parties,” the AIMIM chief said.

“We are not scared of any political party. Our party had contested the election in 2015 from Kishanganj, but the Congress won. Today the BJP is riding high in Bihar due to the failure of the RJD. I have defeated the BJP and the Shiv Sena in Hyderabad,” Owaisi said.

“In Maharashtra, the Congress party is sitting on the Shiv Sena’s lap. The former is presented as a secular party in the country but I would believe that its thinking promotes feudalism. People of the country are facing the consequences due to the wrong moves of the Congress party,” the AIMIM chief said.

The AIMIM has already declared it will contest on 50 seats in the upcoming assembly elections in Bihar.
