Datia (Madhya Pradesh), Oct 15 : Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of merely sloganeering about women’s safety but actually “protecting” a BJP MLA in Uttar Pradesh who has been charged with rape and murder.

Picking on Modi’s slogan of “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao”, he said they also felt good about it.

“But when BJP MLA (Kuldeep Singh Sengar) rapes a girl in Unnao, the UP Chief Minister and the Prime Minister tried to save him. Neither was he expelled from the party nor did the PM speak a word about him. The actual slogan should be ‘Beti Padhao aur Beti ko BJP ke MLA se Bachao’ (educate daughter and save her from BJP MLA),” Gandhi said addressing a public meeting here.

Gandhi’s attack on Modi and his government comes in the midst of the raging #MeToo campaign in which Union Minister M.J. Akbar has been accused of sexual harassment and wrongdoing by women journalists who had worked with him and demands that he be removed from the Cabinet.

Gandhi said even in Madhya Pradesh, women are afraid of moving out of their houses and same is the condition all over the country.

“He (Modi) has place only for industrialists in his heart, not for women, Dalits and farmers. He stays quiet if anything happens to them,” the Congress chief said.

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

Published

By

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.
