Vijay Rupani

Ahmadabad , June 28 : Three senior ruling BJP legislators from Vadodara district avoided BJP President Amit Shah and chose to vent their resentment against the Chief Minister Vijay Rupani before the media and claimed that more than  12 MLAs were with them .

The rebel MLAs accuse state ministers of not meeting them  and  said that bureaucrats in the state are working at their whims and fancies.

Three legislators, Madhu Srivastava from Waghodia constituency, Yogesh Patel from Manjalpur and Ketan Inamdar from Savli, asserted that several state ministers and the bureaucracy were not listening to them and showing a callous attitude to public representatives.

 BJP President Amit Shah was in his home state on Wednesday but the MLAs chose to vent their grievances before the media, also claiming that many more legislators were angry with the working of the government.

Hours after Chief Minister Vijay Rupani flew out for a six-day tour  to a foreign country,Madhu Srivastava, who is a legislator for six terms, asserted that several other frustrated MLAs were with them and they would also come out in future. “Today we are three but tomorrow there may be 13 or 23. Today we three, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, have got together. Now let anything happen,” Srivastava said.

“Ever since the present government took charge six months ago, the bureaucrats in the state are working at their whims and fancies. And when we go to meet the ministers on the designated Tuesdays for us, we are unable to see them,” Srivastava told reporters, as Patel and Inamdar nodded in agreement.

Concurring with Srivastava, Yogesh Patel said that their only demand was that when they seek resolution to the issues of their electorate, it must be sorted out but this was not happening.

Asked if they had made a representation to the Chief Minister about this, Srivastava said, “We are not going to stand in queue (to meet him) if the officials did not allow them.”

The BJP swiftly swung in to action, asking senior Cabinet minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama to intervene. “Whatever be the issue, I, Nitin bhai (Deputy Chief Minister) and Jitubhai Vaghani (state BJP President) will speak to them in person and sort out their issues,” Chudasama said.

BJP spokesperson Bharat Pandya said, “The three have been summoned by state party chief for a meeting in person. We have touched base with them and asked them to put forth their grievances on the right forum.”

farmers protest republic day

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of farmers’ unions leading the agitation called the violent incidents on Republic Day a ‘dirty conspiracy’ hatched with another farmers’ organisation against the peaceful struggle of farmers.

After its emergency meeting, the SKM issued a statement alleging that anti-social elements such as Deep Sidhu attempted to torpedo the agitation.

“Most of the farmer organizations who are part of the ongoing farmers’ agitation today held an appreciation was conveyed to the struggling farmers for extending an unprecedented response to the Kisan Republic Day Parade.

“The concerned organisations discussed the violent incidents in New Delhi and concluded that the Union government has been severely shaken by this peasant agitation,” SKM said in a statement after the meeting held under the chairmanship of Balbir Singh Rajewal.

“Therefore, a dirty conspiracy was hatched with Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee and others against the peaceful struggle of other farmer organizations, who had set up their own separate protest site after 15 days of the beginning of this Farmers’ agitation. They were not part of the organisations which jointly undertook the struggle,” it said.

The capital witnessed unprecedented scenes of chaos and violence in Delhi during the tractor march by farmers on Republic Day. Hundreds of protesters broke away from a rally on the city outskirts and stormed Red Fort on January 26, with others breaching barricades and clashing with police in other parts of the capital.

The Delhi Police has registered 22 FIRs so far in connection with the violence that broke out during the farmers’ tractor parade in the national capital leaving over 300 police personnel injured, officials said.

“When the farmer organizations declared a programme of Kisan Parade on 26 January, anti-social elements like Deep Sidhu and others, along with the said farmer organization attempted to torpedo the farmers’ agitation,” the statement said.

Under this conspiracy, the statement said, farmers’ organisation and other persons announced that they would march on Ring Road and unfurl a flag on the Red Fort.

“As a corollary of conspiracy, the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee started marching on the Ring Road, two hours before the scheduled march of the struggling organisations. It was a deep-rooted conspiracy to knock down the peaceful and strong farmers’ struggle,” said the statement adding that all the SKM constituents strongly condemned this incident.

The protesting farmers have also announced a foot march to Parliament on February 1, when the annual Budget is presented, to press for their demands including a repeal of the three new agriculture laws.

Thousands of farmers, primarily from Punjab and Haryana, have been camping at several Delhi border points for nearly two months, demanding the repeal of the laws, and a legal guarantee on minimum support prices (MSP) for their crops.

Uttar Pradesh: FIR against 3 journos for ‘mischievous’ report

Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), Jan 27 : An FIR has been filed against three journalists in Kanpur Dehat district for alleged ‘public mischief’ and ‘criminal intimidation’.

The journalists were responsible for a news report, which alleged that several government school students ‘shivered in biting cold while government officials were busy with an event’ last week.

The journalists work for a local TV channel that aired the news report.

In his police complaint, Sunil Dutt, the district Basic Education Officer, has alleged the journalists were not even present at the event, and yet they ‘misrepresented the yoga and exercise programme’ that was conducted on Sunday to mark the ‘UP Diwas’.

According to the visuals shown in the programme that was attended by the District Magistrate, a state Minister and local MLAs, the children, in what appears to be their summer uniform, are seen holding toy guns. Students can also be seen performing Yoga.

Another clip shows them in a room, performing exercises. A third clip, also shot indoors, shows them performing the ‘head stand’ or ‘shirshasana’. They are not seen wearing sweaters or winter wear in any of the visuals.

All the guests at the event can be seen clad in winter wear.

According to the official’s complaint, the children were made to take off their winter wear, only for the exercises.

“It is well-known that yoga and physical exercises cannot be carried out in winter wear and requires loose clothing. Local education officials followed this, and made the children take off their winter clothing and wear loose and light clothes for the exercises and then all the children immediately put on their winter wear again,” the basic education officer said in his complaint.

District Magistrate Dinesh Chandra Singh said, “I am very pained to see that some journalists, who were not even there, have published news that the children were shivering in the cold. You can see that a child who performs Yoga cannot do it wearing a sweater or a coat or pants. These children have performed very well, I appreciate them. And we will see what is to be done for those who have carried this report.”
