Hindus running out of patience over Ram temple: Giriraj

Giriraj Singh

New Delhi, Oct 29: Union Minister Giriraj Singh said on Monday that Hindus are running out of patience due to the delay in constructing a grand Ram temple at Ayodhya and warned that no one can predict what will happen if they lose their patience.

“Had (Jawaharlal) Nehru wanted, the issue of Ram temple would not have become controversial. The Congress blocked a solution then. And when the court was to take a call on the issue now, Congress leader Kapil Sibal did the same.

“The Congress has decided to make it a Hindu-Muslim issue. Lord Ram was, is and will remain a matter of faith for Hindus. Now Hindus are running out of patience. No one knows what will happen if Hindus lose their patience,” the Minister said.

The Supreme Court directed the listing of the Ayodhya title suit to January 2019.

Farmers to Delhi

Shiv Sena on Monday slammed the BJP-led regime’s treatment meted out to protesting farmers, adding it was cruel to use water cannons on them amid a cold wave sweeping parts of north India.

The farmers have been protesting at Delhi’s borders since five days against the new farm laws and have said they will not accept any conditional dialogue and threatened to block all five entry points to the national capital.

“Our farmers are being treated as terrorists and attacked on Delhi borders while terrorists are killing our soldiers on the border in Kashmir,” an editorial in Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana said.

The Sena singled out Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar for claiming a Khalistani link in the protests.

“BJP wants to create anarchy. Khalistan is a closed chapter for which Indira Gandhi and General Arunkumar Vaidya laid down their lives,” it said.

“The government is using all its might to crush political opponents but why is this determination not seen while dealing with the country’s enemies,” it asked.

In the last one month, 11 soldiers from Maharashtra attained martyrdom while fighting enemies on the borders, the Sena said.

Referring to the giant statue of Sardar Patel “erected by PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah” in Gujarat, the editorial said Patel was also a leader of farmers and led many farmers’ agitation against the British. “His statue’s eyes must be moist now seeing how farmers are being treated,” it said.

Central agencies like ED and CBI are being used as weapons against political opponents, the Sena said.

“These agencies should also get a chance to display their valour,” it said and suggested that (personnel of) ED and CBI should be deployed in Ladakhand Kashmir to help the Army fight India’s enemies.

Congress’s Anand Sharma Clears “Confusion” Over Tweet On PM Narendra Modi

But the party’s critics, as well as many within the organization, saw it as a weak attempt at recovery.

Anand Sharma

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma’s tweets on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to vaccine makers are the latest source of embarrassment to the party as it battles open dissent since its latest election defeat, in Bihar. When the apparent praise in his posts drew comment, he tweeted that “lines got misplaced” in his earlier posts, which led to “avoidable confusion”.

But the party’s critics, as well as many within the organization, saw it as a weak attempt at recovery.

In tweets on Sunday, the former union minister said PM Modi’s visit to two facilities involved in developing Covid vaccines was a recognition of Indian scientists and an acknowledgement of institutions that India has built over decades. Just a day before, his party colleague, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, had criticized the Prime Minister in scathing posts that referred to farmer protests.

Anand Sharma first tweeted: “Prime minister Narendra Modi visit to Serum Institute, Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadilla was a recognition of Indian scientists and their work to produce the vaccine for COVID-19 That alone will lift morale of frontline warriors and reassure the nation.”

Mr Sharma was among the 23 “dissent” letter-writers who had, earlier this year, called for sweeping changes in the party and a “visible, effective leadership”. His post, therefore, raised speculation that he was switching loyalties.

Later, the former Union Minister posted a clarification and a fresh tweet.

“Regretting the error in our earlier tweet where the lines got misplaced, resulting in some avoidable confusion. The original tweet reads as follows,” he wrote.

“Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi visit to Serum Institute, Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadila was a recognition of Indian scientists and their work to produce the vaccine for COVID-19. This is acknowledging and respecting the institutions that India has built over decades that have expertise and potential making India the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer. Urging PM to ensure that an efficient and equitable platform is functional as the vaccine arrives. This alone will lift the morale of frontline COVID warriors and reassure the nation (sic),” Mr Sharma said.

PM Modi on Saturday visited Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and Pune to review the development and manufacturing process of coronavirus vaccines. He visited the Zydus Biotech Park in Ahmedabad, Bharat Biotech in Hyderabad, and Serum Institute of India in Pune.

Randeep Surjewala had accused the PM of “handling television” while farmers were protesting on roads of Delhi.

“Wish the PM talks to farmers on the road instead of flying in the aircraft,” he had said in a tweet.

“Coronavirus vaccine will be developed by scientists, farmers will feed the country and Modi ji and BJPites will handle television.”

This is the latest example of Congress talking in two voices and one of the letter writers expressing views that are different from the party line.

After Kapil Sibal, another letter writer appeared to target the Gandhi leadership again after the Congress’s Bihar debacle, party chief Sonia Gandhi set up three committees for discussing policy issues related to economic affairs, foreign affairs and national security, with former prime minister Manmohan Singh in all three.

Mr Sharma is a part of the committee on foreign affairs, along with Shashi Tharoor, Salman Khurshid and Saptagiri Ulaka.

Urmila Matondkar, Bollywood actor-turned-politician who contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket and resigned five months later, is all set to join the Shiv Sena. Urmila Matondkar will join Shiv Sena on Monday, over a year after leading the Congress party. No further details about her joining the Shiv Sena have been shared.

The development comes a year after Urmila Matondkar resigned from the primary membership of the Congress, citing petty politics as the reason. Urmila Matondkar had joined the Congress in March 2019 ahead of the Lok Sabha elections and exited it in September 2019.

In her statement, Urmila Matondkar said, “My political and social sensibilities refuse to allow vested interests in the party to use me as a means to fight petty in-house politics instead of working on a bigger goal in Mumbai Congress.”

Urmila Matondkar said the thought of resignation came to her after no action was taken regarding her letter in which she had criticised close aides of senior party leader Sanjay Nirupam.

“To my utter dismay, the letter containing privileged and confidential communication was conveniently leaked to the media which according to me was an act of blatant betrayal. Needless to say, no one from the party was apologetic or even concerned towards me for the same despite my repeated protests,” Urmila Matondkar said in her statement.

Urmila Matondkar also said she will continue to work for people with honesty and dignity as she thanked all those who helped and supported her. On November 30, Urmila Matondkar is joining the Shiv Sena.

Urmila Matondkar had unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha elections from Mumbai North seat as a Congress candidate. Urmila Matondkar had taken on senior BJP leader Gopal Shetty.
