New Delhi, January 9: The two clans of Yadav Pariwar and Samajwadi Party met the election commission separately today. While both Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhil Yadav have claimed Cycle symbol from EC, the senior Yadav has ruled out a rift with son, whatsoever.

Distancing himself from contentious Ramgopal Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav also sent a letter to Rajya Sabha chairman intimating him about the expulsion of Ramgopal Yadav from SP. Meanwhile, the latter refused to comment on Netaji’s remarks.

Earlier in the day, Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav along with brother Shiv pal Yadav and aide Amar Singh on Monday reached Election commission’s office in Delhi.

After meeting Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi, Mulayam Singh said that one person (Ram Gopal Yadav) was creating problems in the party.

“There are some who have influenced my son (Akhilesh). I had a talk with him last night and also in the morning. There is no dispute between my son and me. There is only a bit of dispute within the party, not much. Only one person is responsible for this. But that will be resolved soon,” Mulayam Singh told the media.

Election Commission will decide on the symbol: Mulayam Singh Yadav said on the matter.

Later on, Ram Gopal Yadav and Naresh Agrawal arrived at Election Commission office to share their side of story.

“We had come to the Election Commission to urge them to expedite the decision as nominations will start soon,” said Ram Gopal Yadav outside the EC office.

Yesterday Mulayam Singh had said that, I am the national president of Samajwadi Party and Akhilesh Yadav is the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. Shivpal Yadav is still the president of Samajwadi Party’s Uttar Pradesh unit.

New Delhi, April 19: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and suspended BJP parliamentarian Kirti Azad has been discharged in a criminal defamation complaint filed by the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) and its then Vice-President Chetan Chauhan.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal allowed Kejriwal’s application for discharge, saying that there was not an iota of evidence that the DDCA or any official were personally defamed by his statement.

Chauhan, in February 2016, filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and Azad and accused them of defaming the cricket body by passing “scandalous” remarks.

Referring to Kejriwal’s interview to a news channel wherein he allegedly said that sexual favours were sought for selecting players, the complainant alleged that “false” charges were levelled against the cricket association.

The plea claimed that Kejriwal’s “false” statements were immediately endorsed and repeated by Azad.

The complainant said the accused (Kejriwal and Azad) had severely damaged the credibility and reputation of the complainant (DDCA) in the eyes of thousands of cricket lovers and citizens of India as well as internationally.

Supreme Court verdict on Judge Loya case leaves many questions unanswered, fair probe needed: Congress

Published

on

New Delhi, April 19: Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said the Supreme Court verdict on Judge Loya death case has left many questions unanswered adding, there were discrepancies in the post-mortem report.

Addressing a press conference, the Congress leader stated “the verdict marks a sad day in India’s history. The Supreme Court verdict has left many questions unanswered. There were discrepancies in the post-mortem report, even in recording the name of the victim properly”.

Earlier in a day, the Supreme Court dismissed the petitions seeking an independent investigation into the death of special CBI judge.

Stating that the Congress reiterates demand for a fair probe into Loya’s death, Surjewala said the issue of criminality or lack of it can only be decided through an investigation.

“Loya’s sister gave an interview, alleging that he was offered a bribe of Rs 100 crore along with a flat in Mumbai if he were to deliver a verdict in favour of the accused”, he said.

His kin had publicly said that clothes had blood stains, especially near his neck, the Congress leader further said.

The ECG and histopathology report showed no evidence of a heart attack whatsoever. AIIMS doctor RK Sharma clearly stated that there was no sign of a heart attack and there was evidence that Loya was hit on the head by a blunt weapon,” Surjewala added.

Asking how there was no record of the judge travelling by train from Mumbai to Nagpur, the communications in-charge of All India Congress Committee (AICC) claimed that Loya had no security protection during his visit to Nagpur.

Surjewala said that there was no record of Judge Loya staying in the hotel and there was no reason for three judges to sleep in two beds during their stay when adjoining rooms were empty.

The Congress leader said ” the Post-Mortem was conducted without information and consent of any family member, adding there were discrepancies in recording the name of the victim properly.
