Priyanka Gandhi Election

Lucknow, Sep 19 : Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday accused the Yogi Adityanath government of obstructing the appointment of over 4,000 Urdu teachers who have already cleared the test for the job.

“Had a conversation with 4,000 Urdu teacher aspirants. All the aspirants came in the merit list, and are eligible to get jobs. But, the government is putting up obstructions in their way of getting jobs.

he BJP Government in UP should be in the role of providing jobs, but it is working to obstruct appointments,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi. Reacting to her tweet, UP BJP media co-convenor Navin Srivastava, said, “Some of the recruitment processes have been held up because of technical reasons. But the government is trying to remove all obstructions and resolve them at the earliest.”

He also said the recruitments made during the BJP regime under Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath may have been at a slow pace, but transparent and free from corruption. Srivastava also asked Gandhi if she supports the way appointments were made by the Congress-backed Akhilesh Yadav government and which later came under the scanner.

“Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her party had given a slogan before the 2017 UP Assembly polls — 25 saal, UP behaal” (25 years, UP in poor condition).

And, later they contested the polls with the so-called ”vikaas purush” (Akhilesh Yadav).

“Many of the recruitments made during that government came under the scanner. Priyanka should tell whether she supports the way the recruitments took place during the Samajwadi Party rule in UP,” she said.

Telangana HC to watch web series before nod for release

Published

By

The Telangana High Court will watch the web series ‘Bad Boy Billionaires’ before deciding whether to permit over-the-top platform Netflix to release it or not.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy decided to watch the documentary based on the life of Satyam Computers founder B Ramalinga Raju and others while hearing an appeal by Netflix Entertainment Services to set aside a lower court order that restrained it from broadcasting the series.

The bench on Friday directed the counsel for Raju to file a counter affidavit in the appeal filed by Netflix.

During his arguments, Netflix counsel Neeraj Kishan Kaul submitted that the documentary has been made on the basis of material available in the public domain. He said that the trial court had stalled the release without hearing the OTT platform.

He brought to the court’s notice that Ramalinga Raju and others were already convicted in the Satyam scam case. He also argued that the airing of the web series would have no impact on Raju’s appeal against his conviction.

Kaul, a senior Supreme Court lawyer, suggested to the bench to watch the documentary. However, the Judges told him to watch the documentary along with Raju’s counsel S Niranjan Reddy as this would clear the doubts, if any.

Kaul did not agree with the suggestion on the ground that it would set a bad precedent of seeking prior permission for the release of any documentary. He also contended that staying the release of the documentary after watching the 49-second trailer is a violation of freedom of expression and of the press.

The bench, however, remarked that freedom of press should have self-regulation.While deciding to watch the documentary, the bench posted the case to September 25 for further hearing.

On September 1, a city civil court had restrained Netflix from airing the series over Raju’s objections.

The documentary based on the lives of liquor baron Vijay Mallya, diamantaire Nirav Modi, Sahara India Group chief Subrata Roy and Raju was scheduled to be released on September 2.

Raju had sought a stay on the release of the web series on the ground that it would invade his privacy, defame him, and may also impact his appeal against his conviction in the Satyam case.

Netflix has already released the trailer of the web series.The over Rs 7,000-crore Satyam scam came to light on January 7, 2009 when Raju confessed that the company’s account books and profits were inflated over many years to the tune of several crores of rupees.

A special CBI court on April 9, 2015 sentenced Raju, his two brothers and seven others to seven years in prison in the case, said to be India’s biggest corporate fraud.

However, a month later the Metropolitan Sessions court suspended their sentence. Raju, his brother Rama Raju and the company’s former Chief Financial Officer Srinivas Vadlamani were released on bail in 2018.
