JJ Colonies

New Delhi, Jan 9 : Eyeing the votes of residents of the JJ cluster colonies across the national capital, Delhi Congress chief Subhash Chopra on Thursday said that if his party comes to power in the February 8 elections, people residing there will be given 25 square meter flats multi-storey complexes coming up at the same site.

Addressing a press conference at the party city unit office here, Chopra said: “When Congress comes to power in Delhi, those living in JJ clusters will be given 25 square-metre flats in in-situ multi-storey complexes, in the Kalkaji model.”

Targeting the BJP and the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the former Kalkaji MLA said: “BJP and AAP are betraying the people of unauthorised colonies by distributing slips and making them fill up forms.”

Accusing both parties of misleading 40 lakh people living in unauthorised colonies across the city, he, firing salvos at both, said: “Why they were not allotting the in-situ multi-storey DDA flats constructed in Kalkaji?”

Chopra elaborated that when senior party leader Ajay Maken was a Union Minister, flats were constructed at the Katputhli Colony and Ashok Vihar, but these flats have also not been allotted to the JJ cluster dwellers.

He said that both BJP and AAP were trying to take credit for the construction of these flats by publishing the photos of these flats in newspapers, and in the process exposing and making fools of themselves.

He also alleged that the multi-storey flats constructed in Kalkaji at a cost of Rs 260 crore were delayed by three and a half years.

Chopra further saidf that the Congress is the well-wisher of people living in JJ clusters and unauthorized colonies as the party has always delivered on its promises.

Rajinikanth

Chennai, Jan 24 : The Madras High Court on Friday dismissed the case filed against actor Rajinikanth for his comments made about a rally led by Dravida Kazhagham (DK) founder E.V.Ramaswamy popularly known as Periyar.

The case was filed by Dravidar Vidhuthalai Kazhagam (DVK).

While hearing the case the court wondered why the petitioner had approached it within 15 days of lodging a police complaint.

At this state the counsel for the petitioner sought the court’s permission to withdraw the petition and the court dismissed the same.

At the Tamil magazine Thuglak’s 50th anniversary function, Rajinikanth had said that “in 1971, naked images of Lord Rama and Sita were allegedly displayed in a rally led by Periyar in Salem”. He said that whatever happened in that rally was reported by the media at the time.

The followers of the social activist, who started the ‘self-respect movement’ and founded DK, said that Rajinikanth’s comments were an insult to Periyar.

While some groups have demanded an apololgy from Rajinikanth, the actor has categorically refused to do so.

Speaking to reporters outside his residence recently, Rajinikanth showed some photocopies of media reports in support of his comments and said that he will not apologise.

The DVK has registered a complaint with the Coimbatore police against Rajinikanth for defaming the DK founder.

The DVK complained that Rajinikanth’s statement was false and urged the police to file a case against him.

The DVK also threatened protests outside the theatres showing the actor’s latest movie “Darbar” if he did not apologise.

The DK followers does not agree with Rajinikanth’s statement that naked images of Lord Rama and Sita were allegedly displayed in a rally led by Periyar in Salem.

On the other hand, they agreed that the image of Lord Rama was beaten with a slipper that was allegedly thrown at the rally.
