Ajoy Kumar

New Delhi, Sep 28 : After former party head of Jharkhand Ajoy Kumar rejoined the party on Sunday, the Congress is now trying to get back the other leaders who had deserted the party due to differences within the state units.

The Congress is trying to woo back Ashok Tanwar who quit the party last year over differences with former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on ticket distribution during the state elections, but has not joined any party.

Sources in the Congress said the party is ready to take back all the leaders who want to come back barring those who have joined the BJP for personal gain. The sources asserted that both sides are keen on a truce.

However, Ashok Tanwar said, “He is not contemplating to rejoin the party” since what is the guarantee that the treatment meted out to him will not be repeated. Tanwar, once considered close to former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, had been party president of Haryana for more than five years, but left the party in the run up to the Haryana Assembly elections.

Other leaders who are said to be keen to rejoin the party include former Congress President of Jharkhand Pradeep Balmuchu and Sukhdev Bhagat. Balmuchu had joined the AJSU and Bhagat the BJP.

Jharkhand State in-charge RPN Singh said, “I have not received any application” and refused to comment on it.

After the green signal from Congress President Sonia Gandhi, former IPS officer and ex-MP Ajoy Kumar rejoined the party on Sunday after leaving the Aam Aadmi Party and said that he was inspired by Rahul Gandhi.

“Driven by my conscience to speak up against injustice and institutional capture, I was inspired by Rahul Gandhi and decided to come back to the Congress,” he said.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh tweeted: “Welcome back @drajoykumar. You had never actually left as far as I was concerned.”

Rs 8.5 lakh seized from car in Congress’ Patna office

Patna Oct 22 : An Income Tax Department team raided Congress headquarters Sadaqat Ashram in Patna on Thursday evening and seized around Rs 8.5 lakh from a car parked inside the premises.

While Income Tax officials have not officially commented on the matter, Congress state incharge Shaktisinh Gohil confirmed the raid and termed it “mischief” by the ruling party, ahead of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s rally on Friday.

“It is just a ploy of the ruling party. They are scared of massive support for the Mahagatbandhan. Hence, they are deliberately involved in mischief,” he said.

“It is an office of a political party and anyone can park his car here. There are so many persons coming to this office every day and it is beyond our control of who is carrying what,” Gohil said.

Claiming that 23 kg gold and two kg silver were seized from the brother of a BJP leader in Nepal, he asked why Income Tax, the Enforcement Directorate, the Central Bureau of Investigation and other agencies have not zeroed in on that BJP leader.

“The fact of the matter is they (the NDA) have lost political ground in Bihar. Such a raid is due to their anger. Our leader Rahul Gandhi is coming tomorrow for a rally in Bihar and they want to sabotage his rally through doing such an action,” Gohil said.

Meanwhile, a source in the Election Commission said that cash above Rs 50,000 can be seized if that person fails to show valid proofs, while an amount up to Rs 10 lakh can be permitted to be transported if the person concerned has valid proof about the use of the money in case of marriages, health issues, purchase of properties or goods.
