Vijay Rupani

Ahmedabad, Oct 20 : senior Gujarat leader Shaktisinh Gohil has slapped a legal notice of criminal and civil proceedings on Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani for “politically motivated” charges of engineering attacks on north Indian migrant workers in the state.

In the legal notice issued October 18, Gohil pointed to Rupani’s statements before the media in Uttar Pradesh accusing him of instigating attacks on the north Indian workers, who were forced to flee Gujarat recently, and stated that it was BJP leaders and workers who were responsible for workers’ migration.

The Congress leader, who is also party’s Bihar in-charge as well as a spokesperson, told Rupani that, “As the Chief Minister, it is your duty to maintain law and order in Gujarat. Instead of making politically motivated statement against me in Uttar Pradesh, you should have taken action against me by filing an FIR.”

Gohil said the government could not file an FIR against him or arrest him for it did not have any evidence of his involvement in the incidents.

Gohil also accused another BJP MLA from Prantij, Gajendrasinh, of taking out rallies and instigating crowds, besides youth BJP leader Vikas Patel and others running social media campaigns through Facebook and others.

The Congress leader said he was sending audio and video evidence to establish that BJP leaders and workers were responsible for the attacks. “I was not even there in Gujarat during the attacks and was in Bihar,” Gohil said, adding that immediately on hearing about the incidents, he condemned them and appealed for peace.

Calling the Chief Minister’s statements against him as a “deliberate attempt to tarnish my image to cause great political and social damage”, he demanded that Rupani should publicly express his regrets for those allegations within two weeks.

Chennai, Oct 20 : Tamil cinema superstar Rajinikanth on Saturday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict on Sabarimala, but cautioned against interfering with the traditions of temples.

He said that every temple had some traditions, and it was better not to interfere with those traditions.

However, he was quick to hail the September 28 Supreme Court verdict that overturned a centuries-old practice barring women of menstrual age (10-50 years) from entering the hill temple, where a celibate deity Lord Ayyappa is worshipped.

His cine rival Kamal Haasan, however, refused to be drawn into the Sabarimala controversy.

Haasan, the founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party, said he was not the right person to comment on the issue, as he had never been to the Sabrimala temple.

He observed that Karnataka did not follow the SC verdict asking for the release of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, and now Kerala was not obeying the SC ruling on Sabarimala.

Rajinikanth said that a lot of work had been completed towards forming his political party but denied reports that it would be launched on December 12.

The two Tamil cinema rivals are now set to slug it out in the world of politics.

Protesters have blocked the entry of women in the age group of 10-50, in defiance of the SC order, and despite the state government’s assurance to facilitate the entry of women to the shrine.

Police found Harnek Singh and his wife Gulmehar Kaur in a pool of blood after receiving a phone call from a relative of the couple from Ludhiana in Punjab.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Karan Goyal said that Singh and Kaur were found with their wrist and throat cut respectively in DLF Phase 2 area.

He said that both were rushed to a hospital where Kaur was declared dead while Singh is undergoing medical treatment.

The officer said that prima facie it looks that Singh first slit his wife’s throat and later his own wrist.

A suicide note was found in the room that seems like their will, describing the distribution of their assets and properties.

The married son of the couple has been living in Australia while their daughter is based in Canada. We are waiting for their relatives to arrive, Goyal said.
