Bengaluru, May 4 (IANS) Interacting with Karnataka’s BJP women cadres through his mobile app, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asked them to popularise his government’s schemes ahead of the May 12 Assembly polls.

“We need to expose the hollow promises made by the Congress and urge the people of Karnataka to join the journey of development,” Modi told the Bharatiya Janata Party women workers through the Narendra Modi mobile app.

Listing various women-oriented schemes promoted by the Centre, Modi asked them to connect with other women across each of the state’s 224 constituencies.

“We will win the election, but for us (BJP) it is important to win the polling booth,” he said.

The BJP-led Union government is keen on giving equal opportunities to women in the society and wants to support them at every stage, whether they want to be a homemaker, job seeker or job creator, added Modi in the 40-minute audio-video interaction.

An estimated nine crore women across the country have benefitted from the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) scheme, which provides loans for small and micro enterprises, he said.

Nearly Rs 12 crore worth loans have been given out under the PMMY scheme, of which more than 70 per cent beneficiaries were women, the Prime Minister said.

Programmes like Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, which provides LPG gas to women from below poverty line (BPL) households, have also benefitted several women, he added.

Modi highlighted that the central government had increased the paid maternity leave from the earlier 12 weeks to 26 weeks for women in the organised sector.

“When the contribution of women in the country increases, the development of the country is ensured,” said Modi.

Bihar Poll: Will Fill 10 Lakh Vacancies Soon After Returning To Power: Tejashwi Yadav

“Neighbouring Jharkhand has a domicile law; Madhya Pradesh has 100 per cent domicile law, and so do others. Why has he not implemented this law in Bihar? Does he have any explanation?”

Tejashwi Yadav

Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday promised that if his party returned to power after the Bihar Assembly elections, over 10 lakh government vacancies in different departments would be filled within two months.

He also accused the Nitish Kumar government of neglecting the youths of Bihar.

“As a result, job scarcity is at its highest in state. He is unable to fill 4.5 lakh vacancies in different departments. Besides, vacant posts of supporting staffs are even more,” the Leader of the Opposition in Bihar Assembly told the media here.

“If we calculate, over 10 lakh posts are lying vacant in various departments. Besides, opportunities to create jobs in industries and unorganised sectors are also possible,” Tejashwi said.

“As per the World Health Organisation (WHO), one doctor is required for every 1,000 people. Accordingly, 1.25 lakh doctors are required for 12 crore people of the state. Besides, around 2 lakh support staff like nurses, lab technicians and Group D employees are needed. As many as 50,000 posts of teachers and 75,000 Junior Engineers will be filled. In Bihar police, over 50,000 posts are vacant,” he added.

He also claimed that law and order in Bihar was at its worse. “When the RJD was part of the state government for 15 months, I was the Deputy CM… the crime graph had gone down during that period.”

Playing the regional card, Tejashwi said that he had earlier advocated the implementation of the domicile law in Bihar but the Chief Minister did not agree.

“Neighbouring Jharkhand has a domicile law; Madhya Pradesh has 100 per cent domicile law, and so do others. Why has he not implemented this law in Bihar? Does he have any explanation?”

The RJD leader also took a dig at Nitish Kumar’s claims on ‘sushasan’ (good governance), asking if he was denying that 60 scams had taken place during his rule. “Srijan scam, paddy scam, Saat Nischay scam etc took place… I want to ask Nitishji about the recovery of money from offenders. How much money did he manage to recover from scamsters? Does he have the guts to reveal the amount in public domain?” Tejashwi said.

Manickam Tagore

Hyderabad, Sep 27 : The Congress party’s new incharge for Telangana, Manickam Tagore on Sunday urged the party leaders in the state to work together for victory in the ensuing by-elections to Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council.

On his first visit to Hyderabad after being appointed as All India Congress Committee (AICC) incharge for Telangana, he held a series of meetings with party leaders on Sunday to review the preparedness for by-elections to one seat each of Assembly and Council.

Tagore also reviewed the party’s preparations for the coming elections to Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and also other urban local bodies in Warangal and Khammam.

He stressed the need for unity and discipline among the party cadre to win the coming electoral battles. He asked the party leaders to prepare a plan for massive campaigning in Dubbaka Assembly constituency, where by-elections are likely to be held next month.

Tagore suggested that an incharge be appointed for every two villages to ensure that all villages are covered during the campaign

Manickam, who arrived here on Saturday to grand welcome by the party leaders, also held a meeting with core committee members including state Congress chief N. Uttam Kumar Reddy, working presidents A. Revanth Reddy, Ponnam Prabhakar and AICC secretaries Bose Raju and Sreenivasan.

The central leader wanted the state unit to actively participate in the protest against the new farm legislation. He also called for exposing ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), which supported all controversial moves of Modi government in the past and has now distanced itself from farm Bills.

The by-election to Dubbaka has been necessitated by the sudden death of TRS incumbent Solipeta Ramalinga Reddy. The ruling party is likely to field his widow Sujatha.

In 2018, Ramalinga Reddy had won the seat with a margin of 62,500 votes. Congress party’s M. Nageshwar Reddy had finished second.

This time, TRS president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has directed his party cadre to ensure the party’s victory by a margin of one lakh votes. TRS has already launched the campaign with finance minister T. Harish Rao reaching out to voters with extensive tours to villages.

The by-election to the MLC seat from Nizamabad Local Authorities is scheduled on October 9. The by-poll has been necessitated by disqualification of R. Bhupathi Reddy after he defected to Congress from TRS ahead of 2018 Assembly elections.
