NEW DELHI: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who is in Talkatora Stadium for the Congress Working Committee meeting, is addressing the convention. The convention – named the Jan Vedna Sammelan – that began at around 10 am today discussed matters on Congress’ future course of action for protest against the government’s demonetisation move. Rahul Gandhi said it is a clash between two philosophies. Congress says ‘don’t fear’ and BJP says ‘fear’, ‘scare them’. He also questions PM Modi’s demonetisation move and asked him how much black money came back from foreign bank accounts after the currency was banned. “While the honest people stood in line, the corrupt sat at home,” Mr Gandhi said.

Here are the highlights:

  • We told the farmers not to fear anybody…your land is yours…Never have fear…but what did Narendra Modi do? Instill fear in the minds of people…farmers fear that their land will be taken from them.
  • Wherever he goes…whichever state it may be…he creates fear and these people then convert fear to anger. We are quite the opposite. We in fact, protect the people and encourage them to be fearless.
  • Modi ji said demonetisation is a surgical strike on corruption.
  • Talking about surgical strikes, let me tell you something – they said after surgical strike, India’s army is like the Israeli Army. Does that mean they were lesser than the Israeli Army before that? On the other hand, we say that India’s Army was, is, and forever will be better than the Israeli Army.
  • He is fooling the people by saying ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill India’, ‘Digital India’, ‘Swachh Bharat’. He thinks only he is wise and the rest of India is foolish.
  • We are a wise country and we sent the British back, we won’t be fooled by you. You tell me can one man run a country alone?
  • Think about it, your entire future is in Modi ji’s hands alone.
  • Modi ji speaks of black money. I ask him where is the black money? How much did you bring back from foreign bank accounts.
  • Modi ji did a surgical strike on the poor, the farmer, the middle class without consulting the RBI, within a matter of hours, demonetisation was announced. The entire institution of RBI was destroyed in a matter of hours.
  • Demonetisation was done just so that the bad loans worth 8 lakh crore, that Modi ji’s friends are responsible for, can be written off. The rest of India was made to pay for this. Mark my words, this will happen.
  • The poor man’s money will go into the pockets of these people –Gareebo ka paisa kheencho, Ameero ko seecho.

arvind kejriwal

New Delhi, April 19: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and suspended BJP parliamentarian Kirti Azad has been discharged in a criminal defamation complaint filed by the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) and its then Vice-President Chetan Chauhan.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal allowed Kejriwal’s application for discharge, saying that there was not an iota of evidence that the DDCA or any official were personally defamed by his statement.

Chauhan, in February 2016, filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and Azad and accused them of defaming the cricket body by passing “scandalous” remarks.

Referring to Kejriwal’s interview to a news channel wherein he allegedly said that sexual favours were sought for selecting players, the complainant alleged that “false” charges were levelled against the cricket association.

The plea claimed that Kejriwal’s “false” statements were immediately endorsed and repeated by Azad.

The complainant said the accused (Kejriwal and Azad) had severely damaged the credibility and reputation of the complainant (DDCA) in the eyes of thousands of cricket lovers and citizens of India as well as internationally.

Supreme Court verdict on Judge Loya case leaves many questions unanswered, fair probe needed: Congress

Published

on

New Delhi, April 19: Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said the Supreme Court verdict on Judge Loya death case has left many questions unanswered adding, there were discrepancies in the post-mortem report.

Addressing a press conference, the Congress leader stated “the verdict marks a sad day in India’s history. The Supreme Court verdict has left many questions unanswered. There were discrepancies in the post-mortem report, even in recording the name of the victim properly”.

Earlier in a day, the Supreme Court dismissed the petitions seeking an independent investigation into the death of special CBI judge.

Stating that the Congress reiterates demand for a fair probe into Loya’s death, Surjewala said the issue of criminality or lack of it can only be decided through an investigation.

“Loya’s sister gave an interview, alleging that he was offered a bribe of Rs 100 crore along with a flat in Mumbai if he were to deliver a verdict in favour of the accused”, he said.

His kin had publicly said that clothes had blood stains, especially near his neck, the Congress leader further said.

The ECG and histopathology report showed no evidence of a heart attack whatsoever. AIIMS doctor RK Sharma clearly stated that there was no sign of a heart attack and there was evidence that Loya was hit on the head by a blunt weapon,” Surjewala added.

Asking how there was no record of the judge travelling by train from Mumbai to Nagpur, the communications in-charge of All India Congress Committee (AICC) claimed that Loya had no security protection during his visit to Nagpur.

Surjewala said that there was no record of Judge Loya staying in the hotel and there was no reason for three judges to sleep in two beds during their stay when adjoining rooms were empty.

The Congress leader said ” the Post-Mortem was conducted without information and consent of any family member, adding there were discrepancies in recording the name of the victim properly.
