New Delhi, July 13 (IANS) Countering Union Minister Arun Jaitley, the Congress on Friday said he should write a Facebook post on who is Indias Finance Minister and about economic woes, while adding that it has become a “One Man-No government” situation.

The party also asked if the country under the Narendra Modi government has become a “banana republic”.

Jaitley on Friday accused the Congress of giving only slogans to the poor and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given them resources which would ensure faster growth and faster removal of poverty.

“I would request Arun Jaitley to write a Facebook post on who is India’s Finance Minister. That is the most important thing he needs to do. He must solve that mystery.

“He must clarify as to whether he is India’s Finance Minister or it is Piyush Goyalji. At least people will know who is pushing the economy on the brink of such misery,” said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

Surjewala also advised Jaitley to write a Facebook post on the economic woes that “Modinomics” has heaped upon India.

“Inflation reaching 5 to 6 per cent, Index of Industrial Production going down, exports going down from Rs 19 lakh crore to Rs 10 lakh crore.

“Gross Fixed Capital formation being static or reducing from about 31.5 to 28 per cent, fuel prices getting skyrocketed, import of cheaper fuel from countries like Iran getting reduced from 7,75,000 barrels a day to 5,25,000 barrels a day,” he added.

He said: “As price of diesel goes up by 77 Paisa and price of petrol by one rupee, a hole is being dug in the pocket of the common man. GST getting more complicated by the day, refunds not being made available to exporters and input credits becoming one of the biggest nightmare that small traders and businesses face.”

Surjewala said: “Ministers without portfolio speak about agriculture, agriculture Minister speaks on defence, Defence Minister talks about social justice and Social Justice Minister gives ‘gyan’ on foreign policy.

“External Affairs minister (Sushma Swaraj) does not know how to save herself from trolls being followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. What is happening? Is this a government or a banana republic?” he asked.

“Maximum governance was the original slogan that Modiji gave. Now it has become ‘One Man-No Government’,” he added.

New Delhi, July 11 : Delhi Police Crime Branch has arrested a convicted criminal who was out on parole for keeping illegal weapons. He was nabbed with a semi automatic pistol — 9mm Brazilian make Taurus Beretta with 10 live rounds. Police said that he has been an associate of Dawood Ibrahim.

Police said Anwar Thakur is a resident of Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.

“The accused is a life convict in a murder case of Sadar Bazar in Delhi in which he had shot dead a police informer inside the police station in 1992,” said Rakesh Pawaria, DCP Crime.

The accused Anwar Thakur is an associate of Chhenu Pehalwan – the patron of the notorious Chhenu gang active in the Trans-Yamuna area, who is languishing in Tihar Jail. Anwar Thakur would roam in the area in an effort to revive the Chhenu gang which was becoming weak and losing its clout due to the judicial custody of Chhenu Pehalwan,” the officer said.

Dharavi Covid Case

Mumbai, July 11 : After the World Health Organisation (WHO) acknowledged the manner in which the Covid-19 spread was arrested in Mumbai’s Dharavi, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday said that Asia’s largest slum has now emerged as “a role model” for the whole world.

“The densely populated area like Dharavi has not only shown the world that through collective efforts Covid-19 can be controlled, but has also made a name for itself globally as a role model in the fight against corona,” he said.

Thackeray also showered praise on the integrated struggles undertaken by the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation, various NGOs, volunteers and the local people of Dharavi, saying: “This is the success of your efforts.”

“Such examples of human triumph over a global pandemic can inspire others,” he said, as he lauded the toil that went into controlling the spread of the virus which earned global recognition for Dharavi as a role model, and vowed that the “war against the virus” will be further intensified.

In a pat for the BMC and the state government, WHO Director-General Tedros A. Ghebreyesus, late on Friday, made a laudatory reference to the achievements of Dharavi in Mumbai among other similar examples globally as the world continues to fight the pandemic.

“Even in Dharavi, a densely packed area in Mumbai, a strong focus on community engagement and the basics of testing, tracing, isolating and treating all those that are sick is key to breaking the chains of transmission, and suppressing the virus,” he said.

In this context, Ghebreyesus pointed out that there are many, many examples from around the world that have shown that even if the Covid-19 outbreak is very intense, it can still be brought back under control, as in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Korea.
