Kanpur, March 15: Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday asked party MLA Vishwajit Rane to explain his meeting with Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

“All is well internally within the party. Rane should explain what he was doing with Parrikar in a hotel,” Singh said.

Putting across allegation on BJP for stealing people’s mandate by forming a government in the coastal state of Goa, Sing said Congress wins people by heart and not through money.

As far as Congress is concerned, we neither take money nor give money. We win the people by heart and the people of Goa have voted for us not because of money but heart. We are prepared to fight for the rights of the people,” he said.

He slammed BJP for how it received the mandate in the assembly polls.

Days after a group of the Congress’ Goa legislators blamed the central leadership for failure to form the government in the state despite being the single largest party after the assembly polls, party MLA Vishwajit Rane today said that he, along with five to six other MLAs, would quit the party if party vice-president Rahul Gandhi does not respond adequately to the letter written to him by them.

Rane and his group of legislators wrote a letter Gandhi complaining about the senior Congress leadership.

In the letter, he said that the senior leaders were responsible for the party losing out on the opportunity to form the government in the state.

Rane asserted that it was shocking how despite having people’s mandate in the form of 17 seats in the assembly, the situation was mismanaged by the people in charge of affairs in Goa.

He further said that he would meet Gandhi and try to draw out a conclusion.

Meanwhile, Parrikar has claimed the support of 13 MLAs of the BJP, three MLAs of Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), three MLAs of Goa Forward Party (GFP) and two independent MLAs, thus having a total of 21 MLAs in the 40-member Assembly.

The Congress won 17 seats with the BJP finishing second in the state with 13 seats

Beti Bachao, BJP ke logon se bachao: Rahul Gandhi targets Modi at Save the Consitution rally

Published

on

New Delhi, April 23: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that earlier slogan was Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao. But Now, PM will say is ‘Beti Bachao, BJP ke logon se bachao’.

Addressing save the Constitution rally, Gandhi said: “In his book “Karmayog”, PM Modi justifies manual scavenging by calling it a “spiritual experience” for the Valmiki community. This speaks volumes about his anti-Dalit mindset.

“The Congress Party will stand together to protect the interests of Dalits and other weaker sections of the society wherever the BJP & RSS attacks them”, he added.

Gandhi further stated “we will never allow the BJP & RSS to destroy our Constitution. The people of India will speak their “Mann ki Baat” in 2019″.

“Our institutions were gifted to us by our Constitution. The Modi Govt is now destroying these institutions by appointing RSS ideologues to occupy important positions”.

Taking a jibe at the Prime Minister, the Congress leader said Narendra Modi is only interested in Narendra Modi. Electoral victory is his only focus.

The Congress on Monday launched “Save The Constitution campaign” at the Talkatora Stadium in the national capital.

Modis looting country: Yechury

Published

Sitaram Yechury

Hyderabad, April 23: Launching a sharp attack on the Prime Minister, CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechuri on Sunday claimed that Narendra Modi, fugutive diamantaire Nirav Modi and former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi were looting the country.

The Left leader said people never knew that the country had so many Modis, but what is common among them is that “all were looting”.

Yechury — re-elected the Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary — said the loot increased after the Modi government came to power in May 2014.

He said that though Modi had promised to waive loans of farmers, he waived loans of about Rs 3 lakh crore of big investors and industrialists.

“People’s money kept in banks was looted. Those who did it escaped from the country and the government is not able to bring them back,” he said.

Yechury was addressing a public meeting organised by the CPI-M on Sunday evening to mark the end of five-day party national conclave.

Yechury compared Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah to epic Mahabharata’s ‘Duryodhana’ and ‘Dushasana’.

The Marxist leader said there were 100 Kaurava brothers in Mahabharat but most people know of only two — Duryodhana and Dushasana. “Similarly, people know only two in BJP — Narendra Modi and Amit Shah,” he remarked.

Yechury vowed to defeat the BJP-RSS combine and said the CPI-M was determined to defeat the communal forces and restore harmony in the country.

Voicing concern over increasing sexual assaults on children, he alleged that all those involved belonged to the BJP and RSS and no action was taken against them. “Instead of registering cases against them, victims are being booked. The women and children never faced this grave threat before this government came to power,” he said.

On the third alternative proposed by Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao against both the BJP and the Congress, Yechury said the CPI-M would take a decision after seeing its policies.

Revealing that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief spoke to him a few days ago about the proposed front, Yechury said a front for the sake of power would be of no help.

He recalled that an effort was made for the third alternative 20 years ago, leading to the formation of United Front government in 1996.

Yechury said that while their priority was to defeat the communal forces and appropriate strategy would be adopted at the time of 2019 general elections, the electoral alliances alone will not help. He underlined the need to build a mass movement to achieve the goal.

He pointed out that during Telangana’s armed struggle, “the Communists protected 5,000 villages for three years from Nizam’s ‘razakars’, the Congress government and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s Army”.

Referring to the march of hundreds of red-shirt volunteers at the public meeting, he said such ‘people’s army’ alone could give a befitting reply to the communalists.
