J.P.-Nadda

New Delhi, May 21 : Even after four months of his appointment as BJP President, J.P. Nadda has not constituted his new team, but now sources have told IANS that Nadda is likely to constitute his team either by the end of this month or by the beginning of June.

Earlier due to elections, and later due to coronavirus pandemic, the organisational changes could not be carried out in the party. But now sources have said, Nadda has begun the exercise of constituting his new team of office bearers by holding consultation with senior party leaders.

Nadda became the BJP President in January this year.

A senior BJP leader said, “There are hundred per cent chances that Nadda will announce his new team either by the end of this month or by the first week of June.”

According to sources, his new team may have new faces — with representation to all sections of society and all the states.

In a circular sent recently to all the states, Nadda had laid emphasis on selecting youths and women and new faces for his new team. He had asked for a list from the states with regard to this.

Sources have also told IANS that his new team may have a mix of some old guards and new faces. Nadda is likely to continue with Bhupendra Yadav as election in-charge of Bihar and Kailash Vijayvargiya will continue with his responsibility in West Bengal.

Nadda is likely to give chances to the new faces to lead the party in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh in his new team, sources also said.

It is likely that Nadda may announce his entire team — secretaries, general secretaries, vice presidents and media in-charges, in one go. New faces may emerge as new general secretaries, but all eyes will be on party’s parliamentary board.

After the demise of Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj and Ananth Kumar, several seats are vacant in parliamentary board. Sources said, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman may get entry into the parliamentary board, while some former chief ministers such as Devendra Fadnavis and Dr Raman Singh may also be included in the BJP’s highest decision making body.

Sources said after the restrictions were eased in Lockdown-4, Nadda is in top gear, holding regular consultations with senior party leaders for the constitution of his new team which will be announced soon.

Ajay Kumar Lallu

Raebareli, Jan 27 : UP Congress chief Ajay Kumar Lallu on Wednesday accused the BJP of duping common men to benefit capitalists.

Lallu made the allegation while addressing a gathering here in Harchandpur block as a part of the ‘Sangathan Srijan Abhiyaan’, a campaign aimed at strengthening the party.

“The BJP has formed the government after getting your votes but it is giving all the benefits to capitalists. The people have now understood the deceit that the BJP has subjected them to, said the UP congress chief.

The people are now ready to give the BJP a befitting reply, he added.

“Whatever we buy from the market, we give 20 to 30 per cent as tax to the government. The government does not spend any money out of the tax on the public, it spends it all on industrialists, said Lallu.

That is why the government is not making any law to guarantee a minimum support price for farmers’ crops, he added.

Appeal to Modi govt that anti-agriculture laws be taken back immediately: Rahul Gandhi

As protesting farmers clashed with police at several places in Delhi, Gandhi said on Tuesday that violence is not the solution to any problem and sought repeal of the three farm laws in “national interest”.

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Jan 27 : A day after violence during the farmers’ tractor rally in the national capital, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi appealed to the Narendra Modi government on Wednesday to repeal, what he claimed were, “anti-agriculture” laws.

Taking to Twitter, he also shared a quote by Mahatma Gandhi — “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

“Once again, I appeal to the Modi government that the anti-agriculture laws be taken back immediately,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

His appeal to the government came a day after tens of thousands of farmers broke barriers to storm the national capital as their tractor parade to highlight their demand of repealing the laws dissolved into unprecedented scenes of anarchy.

Deviating from the designated route for the tractor parade, protesting farmers also hoisted flags from some domes as well as the flagpole at the Red Fort, the centrepiece of India’s Independence Day celebrations, to hoist the Nisan Sahib, the Sikh religious flag.

As protesting farmers clashed with police at several places in Delhi, Gandhi said on Tuesday that violence is not the solution to any problem and sought repeal of the three farm laws in “national interest”.

Haryana MLA Abhay Chautala resigns over farm agitation fall out

Abhay Chautala

Chandigarh, Jan 27 : The lone legislator of Haryana’s Indian National Lok Dal Abhay Singh Chautala on Wednesday resigned from the Assembly over the three new farm laws and registration of cases against farmer leaders for the violence in Delhi on Republic Day.

Chautala reached the assembly here riding a tractor and handed over his resignation to Speaker Gian Chand Gupta, who accepted it.

In his resignation, he cited the reason as non-acceptance of the demand of the protesting farmers seeking roll back of all the three farm laws.

“Shri Abhay Singh Chautala, who represents Ellanabad assembly constituency, he came to me personally and tendered his resignation. I believe that the resignation that he has submitted is correct in all technical aspects. I have accepted it.

“He has referred to his earlier two letters that he had sent to me citing union government’s refusal to accept farmers’ demands,” a statement by the Speaker said.

Talking to the media, Chautala blamed the BJP for perpetuating violence in Delhi on Republic Day.

Earlier this month, Chautala, the grandson of former Deputy Prime Minister Chaudhary Devi Lal, sent a “conditional” resignation letter to the Speaker, offering to resign from the assembly in Haryana if the Centre failed to repeal the new agricultural laws by January 26.

In his letter, Chautala had said it should be considered a resignation from the Assembly if the Central government failed to repeal the three farm laws by January 26.

His party’s breakaway faction, the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP), is the crucial coalition partner in the state BJP government led by Manohar Lal Khattar.

JJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala has been maintaining a stoic silence in public over the issue of farmers, who have been staging protests on the border of the national capital, demanding revoking of the agricultural laws, for the past 63 days.

The INLD and the JJP are primarily rural Jat-centric parties with the farmers as their core vote bank. The Jats, a dominant farming community, comprise 28 per cent of the state’s population.

Twenty five Jat leaders, including four Chautalas, were elected to the state assembly in October 2019.

Coming out openly for the first time with the protesting farmers, JJP national chief and former MP, Ajay Singh Chautala, who is the brother of Abhay, on December 2, 2020, said the Centre should give, in writing, an assurance on the minimum support price (MSP) to the protesting farmers that largely come from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Political observers believe pressure on the JJP within the party to withdraw its support to the state government has been gaining as the BJP Central leadership has been adopting a ‘tough posture’ on its three agricultural laws.

Besides the JJP’s 10 legislators, seven independent MLAs had also extended support to the BJP, helping it reach a tally of 57 seats in the 90-member Assembly.
