Economic crisis due to failed Modi govt policies: Congress

New Delhi, Aug 14 : Taking a swipe at the Narendra Modi government, the Congress here on Wednesday said the economy was dwindling because of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) failed policies.

“The automobile sector has witnessed the worst slowdown in the last 19 years and around 10 lakh jobs were at the stake. This is the result of the failed policy of the BJP government. After demonetisation and the goods and service tax (GST), the BJP government has failed to arrest the decline. When will the thoughtless BJP government wake up?,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

The Congress has also posted a video on the deteriorating economy on party’s official twitter account. In the video, a woman explains how the government failed to lift the economy and how it was heading for a slowdown.

She goes on to explain how the BJP has turned into a Bhartiya Jhooti Party and how nothing has changed in the last few months after the Modi government stormed back to power at the Centre.

In the video, the party explained that India’s economy slipped from fifth to seventh position, which is self-explanatory.

Pointing to Modi’s dream of making the India a $5 trillion economy, she said for that the country GDP must grow at 9 per cent, whereas we are already 2-3 per cent down.

The party said the unemployment was at 45-year high and investment at 15-year low. The total workforce has shrunk 9.1 million between 2011-12 and 2017-18.

Hit Bollywood numbers too have been incorporated in the video to make it intersting.

“The nature of injury being caused to the public is the loss of identity and ethos as inheritors of the hard-won freedom from foreign rule,” the plea contended.

Supreme Court

New Delhi, May 29 : The Supreme Court will hear a plea on June 2 seeking direction to the Centre to amend the Constitution and change the name of the country from India to ‘Bharat’. The plea claimed that this will help citizens of the country get over the colonial past and instil a sense of pride in their nationality.

The petitioner, a Delhi-based man, argued that the time is ripe to recognise the country by its original and authentic name, Bharat, especially when the cities have been renamed in accordance with Indian ethos.

The plea contended that the purpose of the amendment to Article 1 will ensure “the citizens of this country to get over the colonial past.”

“The removal of the English name, though appears symbolic, will instil a sense of pride in our nationality, especially for the future generations. In fact, replacing India with Bharat would justify the hard fought freedom achieved by our ancestors,” the plea said.

The petition was listed on Friday before a bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde, but it got deleted, as he was not available. The next hearing on the matter is scheduled on June 2 before a bench headed by the Chief Justice, as per the notice uploaded on the website of the apex court.

The plea, citing the 1948 Constituent Assembly debate on Article 1 of the then draft Constitution, argued that even at that time, there was a “strong wave” in favour of naming the country as Bharat or ‘Hindustan’.

The plea said the facts constituting the cause of action was the failure on the part of the Centre to do away with the symbol of slavery by using the name India instead of Bharat or Hindustan.

“The nature of injury being caused to the public is the loss of identity and ethos as inheritors of the hard-won freedom from foreign rule,” the plea contended.
