Lalu denies 'benami' land deals, vows to 'uproot' Modi government

Patna, May 19: After RJD chief Lalu Prasad came under the Income Tax department scanner in alleged Benami land deals worth Rs 1000 crores, he warned BJP and RSS not to threaten him else he will drag them off their seat in Delhi.

RJD chief on Friday also quashed reports of IT raids on alleged “benami” property deals involving him and his family, and vowed to “uproot” the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre before it completes its five-year term.

“Listen, BJP and RSS people, Lalu will drag you off your seat in Delhi, whatever be my situation. Get it straight..Don’t you dare threaten me,” Lalu told reporters, in his first media reaction after the Income Tax Department conducted raids at 22 places in and around Delhi three days ago in connection with alleged “benami” property deals.

Lalu said in chaste Hindi: “Ab hum kendra sarkar ko tabah karke hi chodenge, usko ukhad phenkenge (Now I will destroy the central government, I will uproot it).”

Three years of BJP-led Narendra Modi government have been completed in office now, but it is not going to complete its full tenure, he said.

Lalu also cited a local saying from popular folklore to say that the “BJP’s youthful age is over”.

Lalu refuted reports that the Income Tax Department has conducted raids at 22 places related to him. “I want to ask the media as to how they have reported it without any verification and evidence. He also asked the media to provide the names of the 22 places where the IT conducted raids.

Lalu said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been conspiring to tarnish Lalu’s reputation among the people. “How can I and my family have become super rich and others are paupers? It is part of a political game.”

Lalu said that BJP leaders have been shouting loudly about “ghotala” (scam). “There is no such thing.”

Lalu said he and his wife Rabri Devi, former Chief Minister, his two sons Tejashwi Yadav, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, and Tej Pratap, Health Minister, have been filing IT returns and have submitted affidavits to the Election Commission about their assets.

Asked about his proposed rally in Patna to showcase grand unity of non-BJP parties ahead of the 2019 polls, he said: “I have invited top leaders of all non-BJP parties for my rally in August. All of them would attend it.”

Beti Bachao, BJP ke logon se bachao: Rahul Gandhi targets Modi at Save the Consitution rally



New Delhi, April 23: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that earlier slogan was Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao. But Now, PM will say is ‘Beti Bachao, BJP ke logon se bachao’.

Addressing save the Constitution rally, Gandhi said: “In his book “Karmayog”, PM Modi justifies manual scavenging by calling it a “spiritual experience” for the Valmiki community. This speaks volumes about his anti-Dalit mindset.

“The Congress Party will stand together to protect the interests of Dalits and other weaker sections of the society wherever the BJP & RSS attacks them”, he added.

Gandhi further stated “we will never allow the BJP & RSS to destroy our Constitution. The people of India will speak their “Mann ki Baat” in 2019″.

“Our institutions were gifted to us by our Constitution. The Modi Govt is now destroying these institutions by appointing RSS ideologues to occupy important positions”.

Taking a jibe at the Prime Minister, the Congress leader said Narendra Modi is only interested in Narendra Modi. Electoral victory is his only focus.

The Congress on Monday launched “Save The Constitution campaign” at the Talkatora Stadium in the national capital.

Modis looting country: Yechury



Sitaram Yechury

Hyderabad, April 23: Launching a sharp attack on the Prime Minister, CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechuri on Sunday claimed that Narendra Modi, fugutive diamantaire Nirav Modi and former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi were looting the country.

The Left leader said people never knew that the country had so many Modis, but what is common among them is that “all were looting”.

Yechury — re-elected the Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary — said the loot increased after the Modi government came to power in May 2014.

He said that though Modi had promised to waive loans of farmers, he waived loans of about Rs 3 lakh crore of big investors and industrialists.

“People’s money kept in banks was looted. Those who did it escaped from the country and the government is not able to bring them back,” he said.

Yechury was addressing a public meeting organised by the CPI-M on Sunday evening to mark the end of five-day party national conclave.

Yechury compared Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah to epic Mahabharata’s ‘Duryodhana’ and ‘Dushasana’.

The Marxist leader said there were 100 Kaurava brothers in Mahabharat but most people know of only two — Duryodhana and Dushasana. “Similarly, people know only two in BJP — Narendra Modi and Amit Shah,” he remarked.

Yechury vowed to defeat the BJP-RSS combine and said the CPI-M was determined to defeat the communal forces and restore harmony in the country.

Voicing concern over increasing sexual assaults on children, he alleged that all those involved belonged to the BJP and RSS and no action was taken against them. “Instead of registering cases against them, victims are being booked. The women and children never faced this grave threat before this government came to power,” he said.

On the third alternative proposed by Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao against both the BJP and the Congress, Yechury said the CPI-M would take a decision after seeing its policies.

Revealing that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief spoke to him a few days ago about the proposed front, Yechury said a front for the sake of power would be of no help.

He recalled that an effort was made for the third alternative 20 years ago, leading to the formation of United Front government in 1996.

Yechury said that while their priority was to defeat the communal forces and appropriate strategy would be adopted at the time of 2019 general elections, the electoral alliances alone will not help. He underlined the need to build a mass movement to achieve the goal.

He pointed out that during Telangana’s armed struggle, “the Communists protected 5,000 villages for three years from Nizam’s ‘razakars’, the Congress government and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s Army”.

Referring to the march of hundreds of red-shirt volunteers at the public meeting, he said such ‘people’s army’ alone could give a befitting reply to the communalists.
