Modi used Jumla strike – a 21st century political weapon on people: Rahul



New Delhi, July 20 : Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday pointedly attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for launching the  “jumla strike” considered as the 21st Century political weapon and the people of India are the victims of it. 

During the ongoing debate over the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha, Rahul said, “I heard Mr Galla’s speech very carefully, I listened to everything you said. And I sensed a certain anxiety, a deep feeling of pain. And I want to tell you from here that you are the victim of a 21st century political weapon. Very fantastic political weapon and you are not alone. There are many victims like you in the country. The weapon is called the ‘jhumla strike’.

Describing the  Symptoms of the ‘jhumla strike’ are, Rahul said ,” Great sense of excitement, happiness  there is a feeling of shock  then there are 8 hour long speeches.”

The Congress President  even spoke about the victims of the strike, “Who else are victims? Farmers, youth, Dalits, tribals and women of the country.”

Listing out the strikes carried out by PM Modi, Rahul said “Jumla strike No 1: 15 lakhs in every Indian citizens account ;Jumla no 2 : 2 crore youths will get jobs every year .”

“Wherever the PM goes, he talks about employment. Sometimes he says make pakodas, open shops. Who will bring employment? SMEs, small retailers, the construction industry. PM brought in demonetisation. Probably he was not aware that farmers, labourers, and the poor run their businesses in cash,” Rahul said.

“MSP is also a ‘jumla strike’: Prime Minister waived hundreds of crore of corporate debt but not of farmers. With MSP hike government has provided benefits to farmers worth Rs 10,000 crore and Karnataka government alone has waived loans worth over Rs 40,000 crore,” Rahul said.

Rahul Gandhi continues, “You said every person will get Rs 15 lakh – this is jhumla No 1. You said two crore youth will gets jobs every year, this is jhumla No 2. In 2016-17, all over the country, four lakh people have got jobs according to the labour survey. The Indian youth had faith in the PM as in every speech of his he said he will give 2 crore jobs to the youth.”

“China provided 50,000 youth jobs every day. But the PM generates only 400 youth jobs everyday,” Rahul said. Speaking to the PM, he added, “Wherever you go, you speak about jobs — make pakodas, open shops… who will give jobs? Jobs will be given by small business and shops.”

Rahul alleged that “PM doesn’t have place in his heart for poor, marginalised’

“The PM doesn’t go out… he travels abroad but never leaves his security cordon. He doesn’t speak to small businessmen just to the suit boot people. What’s in the heart of the poor and marginalised doesn’t reach the PM,” Rahul says. “You pickpocketed the poor… those who run small businesses and establishments.”

Referring to the PM’s Jio advertisement, Rahul Gandhi adds, “The PM does things for those who help him. But for the rest of the country and its workforce, the PM doesn’t have a place in his heart.

The Congress leader also hit out at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over demonetisation and goods and services tax in his speech, the most important ever since he became the main opposition party’s president.




Mukhtar Ansari to be brought from Punjab jail to UP




BSP MLA Mukhtar Ansari

Mau (Uttar Pradesh), Sep 28 (IANS) Jailed mafia don and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MLA Mukhtar Ansari will now be brought to Mau from Punjab’s Mohali jail on October 21 for interrogation in a case of fraud and Arms Act lodged against him in January.

Mau Superintendent of Police (SP) Ghule Sushil Chandrabhan, said, “Warrant B has been procured by the district police from the Chief Judicial Magistrate court in a case of sections 419 (cheating by impersonation), 420 (cheating and dishonesty), 467, 468 (forgery), 471 (using as genuine a forged document), 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC and 30 Arms Act, registered on January 5 with Dakshintola police station.”

He said that the CJM Court accepted the plea of the police to bring Mukhtar Ansari here from the Mohali jail on Warrant B on October 21.

The Yogi Adityanath government has been cracking the whip on the economic empire and armory of the jailed don.

In Varanasi, SP City Vikas Chandra Tripathi said that the process of confiscating the property of Mukhtar’s close aide Meraj Ansari was started on Friday by making a public announcement near his residence in the Ashok Vihar area.

Meraj Ansari is absconding after a case under section 419, 420, 467, 468 and 471 of the IPC was lodged against him for committing fraud to procure arms licences. He has been absconding since the case was lodged, added Tripathi.

Meanwhile, large-scale action has been taken against Mukhtar’s family members and henchmen in different districts of the state, including Lucknow.

Illegally acquired property by the don has been demolished and arms licenses procured by his men have been cancelled.

As per the records of Mau police, in 2001 four persons — Israel, Anwar, Salim and Mohd Shah Alam — had managed to get arms licences on the recommendation of Mukhtar’s letter by mentioning fake addresses on their application forms.

Alam was eliminated in an encounter with police in Ghazipur after a few years while others are absconding.

Apart from them, former station officer Dakshintola police station J.K. Singh and a revenue official were also accused in this case by the police.

These facts had come to light during the Ghosi Assembly bypoll process in October 2019, when arms licence verification was initiated across Mau district.

During the investigation, it came to light that apart from Israel, Anwar and Salim, Mohd Shah Alam had also applied for an arms license in 2001. To ensure that they all get licenses for double-barrel guns, Mukhtar wrote letters to the then District Magistrate on his letter pad in the capacity of Mau MLA in December 2001 requesting to issue arms licenses in their names.

The Mau Police have also registered a case against the owner of the Prakash Construction Company, Kiran Rai, at the Kotwali police station for utilizing fake documents to grab major contracts in order to provide financial benefits to the Mukhtar gang, said SP Mau.

Mukhtar Ansari was shifted to the Ropar jail in Punjab in January 2019 and then to Mohali jail.

Congress MP files PIL in SC seeking directions to quash farm Bills




Supreme Court

Congress MP from Kerala T.N. Prathapan has moved a PIL in the Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the farm Bills recently passed by Parliament.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday gave his assent to the contentious farm Bills, which has seen the Opposition and farmers hit the streets in protest.

Prathapan urged the top court to quash The Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020 as violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution.

The plea argue that without the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) acting as a protective shield around the farmers, the market would ultimately fall to the corporate greed of multinational companies who are more profit-oriented and have no care for the conditions of poverty-stricken farmers dependent on farming for their livelihood.

The plea, filed through advocate James P Thomas, contended that the APMC deterred the exploitation of the farmers by providing a minimum support price which would guarantee that the farmer who comes to the APMC would not leave empty-handed.

In the plea Prathapan said: “The promotion of agreements for farming produce will weaken the process of monetisation as per current structure of The Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020. Through the provisions mentioned in the above noted act, de-risking of agriculture as claimed by the Government at various stages is wrong on the analysis of the provisions enacted.”

The petitioner urged the apex court to issue direction declaring Section(s) 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 13, 14, 18 and 19 of The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020 as being unconstitutional, illegal and void.

He contended that The Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 has been hastily passed without adequate discussion and that a bare reading of its provisions will reveal that it is not a progressive piece of legislation.

“The matter is of substantial public interest and is emergent as there is a need for striking down laws which violate the rights of the 14.5 crore citizens who are engaged in farming before serious financial damage is caused to them and the families of such persons”, said the plea.
