If 10 parties gang up against BJP, then it shows who is strong: Rajinikanth

If they (non-BJP parties) have said it like this, then it must be definitely correct.

Chennai, Nov 13 : Superstar Rajinikanth on Tuesday said it was for the people to decide whether the BJP is a “dangerous” party but said if 10 parties are ranged against one, then it shows who is strong.

Meeting the media in an apparent damage control exercise over remarks made by him on Monday, the actor refused to give his personal opinion on whether the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was a “dangerous party” as he had still not entered politics.

“It is for the people to decide who is dangerous. I will not give my views because I have still not entered politics. It is for the people to decide (about BJP). But the fact that 10 parties are uniting against one party (BJP), then it shows who is strong,” he said.

On Monday, when he was asked whether the BJP was such a dangerous party that opposition parties were combining against it, Rajinikanth had said: “If they (non-BJP parties) have said it like this, then it must be definitely correct.”

He also sought to correct an impression that he did not know anything about the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case whose demand for release was now pending with the Tamil Nadu Governor.

On Monday, when he was asked about it, he had countered: “Who, which seven people. I don’t know.”

On Tuesday, Rajinikanth said, “This Rajinikanth is not a fool that he does not know about the seven convicts. I think they have spent 27 years in jail and on humanitarian conditions they should be released.”

He also recalled that he had telephonically talked to one of the convicts, Perarivalan, when he had come out on parole and had consoled him.

His reaction on Tuesday came after he faced a backlash in the social media where #Rajinikanth does not know” was trending on top.

New Delhi: The Congress has launched a counter attack against the senior leaders who have made statements about the party in public.

Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said, “The nominated senior leaders have access to the party leadership and should refrain from speaking publicly.

Khera pointed out that Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is pushing for CWC elections, is a CWC nominated member who can just pick the phone and call anybody instead of making public statements.

Maintaining that every party has an internal system to discuss each issue, including the Bihar election results, Khera said, “I hope the senior leaders will put forward the best example.

Azad, who is one of the dissenters who had questioned the party leadership and functioning, has demanded that the party should hold elections to strengthen the organisation and make it more responsible.

Dismissing allegations of rebellion levelled against the dissenters, Azad, the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said, “We are reformists and want revival of the party.”

Azad, the second senior Congress leader after former Union minister Kapil Sibal to speak about the party’s dismal show in the Bihar Assembly polls, said that the Congress should shed the five-star culture, at least during elections, and insisted that the leaders should reach out to the people.

Azad also insisted that elections should be held at different levels of the party so that people become responsible and work for the party.

Azad also said that there is no issues with the first family in the Congress and gave a clean chit to interim party chief Sonia Gandhi and former President Rahul Gandhi.

He also noted that the party should be more active at the ground level during elections, a statement that has been perceived as a direct criticism of the leaders involved in the Bihar elections.

Sibal too had raised similar concerns. Contending that he was “compelled to speak publicly” as there is “no forum in the party to discuss party issues”, he said the Congress needs efficient and senior leaders to manage elections.

Ghulam Nabi Azad

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is one of the dissenters who had questioned the party leadership and functioning, has sought that the party hold elections to strengthen the organisation and make it more responsible.

Dismissing allegations of rebellion levelled at the dissenters, Azad, the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said “we are reformists” and “this is all for the revival of the party”.

Becoming the second senior leader after former Union Minister Kapil Sibal to speak out on party affairs after the party’s dismal performance in the Bihar Assembly polls, Azad said that the “Congress should shed the five star culture, at least in elections”, and insisted that leaders should hit the roads and reach out to people.

“There is no connect between the leaders and the people,” he contended.

Insisting on the organisational elections which was a key demand by the “G23” group, Azad held that elections from block to state chief should be held “so that people should be more responsible and work for the party”.

Azad also said that there is no issues with the first family in the Congress and gave a clean chit to interim chief Sonia Gandhi and former President Rahul Gandhi.

However, he noted that the party should be more on ground level at least during elections which is perceived a direct criticism of leaders involved in the Bihar elections.

Sibal too had raised similar concerns. Contending that he was “compelled to speak publicly” as there is “no forum in the party to discuss party issues”, he said that the Congress needs efficient and senior leaders to manage elections.

His statement, coming in wake of the party’s dismal performance in the Bihar Assembly polls as well as the string of bypolls in various states, were viewed as an apparent attack on team Rahul Gandhi whose handpicked team was involved in the election process.

Sibal had also expressed unhappiness that no senior party leader had spoken on the Bihar results.

The group of 23 leaders had written a letter to interim party chief Sonia Gandhi in August, seeking a complete overhaul of the party and elections from block to the Congress Working Committee level, but came under major attack.

Agar Malwa (Madhya Pradesh) : Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday said that he is considering collecting a small amount as tax from the public for the welfare of cows in the state.

“We used to keep a portion of our meal for cows and dogs before having it. Now, this tradition is followed only in exceptional cases. So, I am considering collecting a small amount as tax from the public for the welfare of cows at cow shelters,” Chouhan said while addressing the public on Gopashtami on Sunday at Salaria Gau Sanctuary in Agar Malwa district.

He also announced that cow milk will be given to the children in anganwadis.

“Cow’s milk is like nectar. We have decided that cow milk will be given to children in the anganwadis,” he said, adding the house which keeps cows is always filled with positive energy. “Sculptures and diyas are now being made from cow dung, which is also environment-friendly”.

Chouhan added Madhya Pradesh government will construct nearly 2,000 new cow shelters and NGOs will also be operating some of them.

“There are around 7 lakh to 8 lakh stray cattle in Madhya Pradesh. The state government will construct around 2,000 new cow shelters,” said Chouhan.

Earlier on Sunday, after holding a meeting on “Cow Cabinet”, CM Chouhan said that the state government will form the Mantri Parishad Samiti to work for the protection and promotion of cows.

“Ministers of departments related to animals and the principal secretary will together form the Mantri Parishad Samiti. This issue cannot be handled only by the Animal Husbandry Department,” said Chouhan.

Chouhan celebrated also Gopashtami at his residence in Bhopal where he fed halwa-roti to cows.

As per the Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna’s father, Nanda Maharaja, asked him and his elder brother Lord Balrama to take the responsibility of the cows of Vrindavan on this day.
