Prakash Jarwal AAP MLA

New Delhi, June 5 : A Delhi Court on Friday dismissed the application filed by AAP legislator Prakash Jarwal seeking interim bail to perform the last rites of his father-in-law who was suspected to have died of COVID-19.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Sanjeev Aggarwal said that the body of his in-law has already been handed over to his kin for cremation earlier on Friday, adding that Jarwal cannot be released on bail as chances of him influencing witnesses “cannot be ruled out”.

“The fact that the investigations are still in progress, in these circumstances if the accused is released on interim bail, considering the dominant position of the accused, chances of the accused influencing the witnesses cannot be ruled out,” ASJ Aggarwal noted, while dismissing the plea.

The police opposed Jarwal”s bail application, asserting that his brother-in-law can perform all the rites and rituals related to the death of his father-in-law. They said that allegations against him were serious in nature.

“If granted the relief, the accused may likely hamper the probe,” the prosecution said.

Jarwal is currently lodged in Tihar jail in connection with a case of alleged suicide of a doctor in South Delhi. A 52-year-old doctor had allegedly committed suicide in Durga Vihar on April 18. In his suicide note, he had held Jarwal responsible for his taking the extreme step.

In his bail application, the legislator stated that his father-in-law had breathing problems from the past two days and expired in LNJP hospital on Wednesday, while he was under treatment.

“As per Hindu rites, the presence of the accused is must at time of cremation of his father-in-law,” he said, requesting the court to grant him bail.

Jarwal claimed that there is an apprehension that his wife and eleven-month-old child may also have contracted coronavirus.

Jarwal, who represents the Deoli assembly constituency, was arrested on May 9, after a case of extortion and abetment to suicide was filed against him and others based on a police complaint by the doctor”s son.

Afghan Cabinet still not finalized: Prez Palace

Abdullah Abdullah

Kabul, Aug 11 : The Afghan Presidential Palace has said that Abdullah Abdullah, chairman of the High Council for Reconciliation, waas yet to introduce his nominated Ministers for the new Cabinet.

On Monday, the Palace’s deputy spokesman Dawa Khan Menapal said that nominees for Ministers must meet the criteria, so that the President can send them to the National Assembly for a vote of confidence, reports TOLO News.

“As soon as our political partners make a list according to the criteria, the government will send it to the parliament for a vote of confidence,” said Menapal.

On the other hand, Fraidoon Khwazoon, spokesman for Abdullah, said that they have sent their nominee list to the Presidential Palace.

“For our part, the problem is solved and we have sent the list of nominated ministers that is relevant to us and it will be implemented according to the agreement,” he said.

A number of politicians and citizens of the country consider the existence of differences between Ghani and Abdullah as one of the main reasons for the delay with the cabinet.

“The big reason is that these two people do not get along with each other and that is why they do not agree on governors and ministers,” said Abdul Rauf Shapoon, a lawmaker.

In May, a power-sharing agreement was signed between President Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah to end the political deadlock following last year’s presidential election.

Under the agreement signed on Sunday, Ghani remains as President, while Abdullah will head the High Council for National Reconciliation to lead the peace talks with the Taliban.

Abdullah, who served as Chief Executive in the previous government and contested the presidential poll on September 28, 2019, had challenged the outcome of the vote in which the Election Commission declared Ghani as winner.

When the delayed results of the election were finally announced in February, Ghani was again declared President by the Independent Election Commission after earning a slightly higher percentage than Abdullah, reports TOLO News.

But the tensions increased after Ghani and Abdullah, both held inauguration ceremonies on the same day in their adjacent respective palaces, after the latter rejected the outcome.

Rahul Gandhi

Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 11 : In a passionate plea to former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Leader of Opposition in Kerala and top party leader Ramesh Chennithala on Tuesday wrote to the former that he is the only alternative to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s authoritarian regime.

“The only opposition and the only alternative to Modi’s authoritarian regime is Rahul Gandhi. In these times, where even some of the mainstream media houses have become partisan and pro power, your good self has been successful in waging a lonely battle against the Modi-Amit Shah duo,” said Chennithala in his letter to Gandhi.

“The grassroots level workers are eagerly waiting for Rahulji to take over the reins of the party. This will infuse unmatched enthusiasm among our cadres and will catapult our party towards recapturing the past glory,” said Chennithala.

Chennithala adds that they are going through an unprecedented crisis and Sonia Gandhi has been struggling, despite her health issues, to rudder this boat through these tempestuous times.

“But to match the crookedness and the robustness of the BJP, we need to have your young and dynamic leadership at the helm of affairs. The nation had appreciated the highest democratic principles shown by your good self while abdicating the presidentship of Congress party, taking up the moral responsibility for UPA’s debacle in 2014 general elections. However it’s time for you to kindly reconsider your decision. The Assembly elections to Bihar and five other states are due in nine months time,” notes Chennithala.

He ends his letter by saying that this is an appeal to your good self on behalf of all the Congress Workers and the secular and liberal citizenry of this great nation to take over the reins of the party and lead us in this struggle to re-discover the spirit of India.

Gandhi is the Wayanad Lok Sabha member and this letter comes at a time when Kerala has its Assembly elections in May 2021.
