Congress to attack NDA government in Parliament on Uttarakhand crisis

There is much likelihood that  second half of the budget session that is due to start on Monday April 25 will be a wash-out as Congress is armed with massive ammunition to attack Modi government .

Congress president Sonia Gandhi  has specifically stated that her party will not cooperate  with the government and rather  will seek replies from NDA on  nine issues, including the Centre’s role in dismantling the Uttarakhand government.

Congress’ strategy meeting was attanded by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, senior leaders like AK Antony, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, Ahmed Patel and Mallikarjun Kharge.

Sonia Gandhi   specified “non-cooperation” and other leaders  also  supported  Gandhi’s  line of action  to attack the NDA government  with the support from other  opposition forces

In Rajya Sabha, where the government is in a minority, party leader Anand Sharma has already moved a motion to deplore the government’s role. The proposal says, “That this House deplores the destabilisation of the democratically elected government in the state of Uttarakhand and disapproves the unjustified imposition of President’s rule.”

Cong gives notice for RS debate, resolution on Uttarakhand

Congress leaders have given notices to discuss the Uttarakhand political crisis in Rajya Sabha suspending the question hour and adoption of a resolution condemning the imposition of President’s Rule there.

The notices given by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and Deputy Leader of Congress in the House, Anand Sharma, seek to corner the government on the issue accusing it of “destabilising” a democratically-elected government in Uttarakhand.

In his notice given under Rule 267, Sharma has also sought from Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari the passage of a resolution condemning the Modi government for “destabilistion” of the Uttarakhand government and imposition of President’s Rule in the state.

The resolution reads “this House deplores the destabilisation of the democratically elected government in Uttarakhand and disapproves the unjustified imposition of President’s Rule there under Article 356 of the Constitution.”

Ever since the dismissal of the Rawat government and clamping of central rule, Congress has mounted an offensive against the Narendra Modi dispensation.

The Delhi Police on Sunday said that after several round of talks with the farmers groups, it has permitted the tractor rally inside Delhi on January 26.

Police has said that the barricades would be lifted at Singhu, Tikri and Gazipur borders on January 26 after the Republic Day parade is over and the farmers would be allowed to enter upto 100 kilometers within Delhi with their tractors in a circular path on the routes discussed with the farmers.

The route specified is from Singhu Border to Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar, Kanjhawala, Bawana to Auchadi. From Tikri border, it will be to Nangloi, Najafgarh, Jharoda, Dhansa, Badli and the KMP and from Gazipur border to Apsara border to Hapur Road.

“We have told the farmers that the rally would start once the Republic Day parade is over. We expect with the cooperation of the farmers the rally would be peaceful,” Special Commissioner of Police, Intelligence, Deependra Pathak, said.

However, the police said that they are on alert after intelligence inputs that various Twitter handles operating from across the border are active to disrupt the rally on January 26.

“According to our intelligence input, 308 Twitter handles have been generated from Pakistan to disrupt the rally to create disturbance. We are also concerned about the security of the rally given the threat perception,” he added.

Meanwhile, several batches of farmers from Punjab and Haryana set out on their tractor-trolleys and other vehicles to take part in the proposed tractor rally on January 26 in the national capital. Tractor-trolleys have now become a common sight at the Singhu border as the farmers have started bringing in the tractors to the protest site from villages in Punjab for the proposed rally.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and other states have been protesting at multiple border points of Delhi at Singhu, Tikri and Gazipur borders since November-end. They are demanding a repeal of the three central farm laws passed by Parliament in September last year.
