New Delhi, Oct 2: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday attacked the Modi government after thousands of farmers were prevented from entering Delhi, saying farmers were not even being allowed to voice their grievances.

“On International Day of Non-Violence, the BJP’s celebrations of Gandhi Jayanti began with the brutal beating of peaceful farmers coming to Delhi,” tweeted Gandhi after the police stopped the farmers at the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border.

“Now the farmers cannot even come to the country’s capital and talk about their ordeal,” he further added.

Led by the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), thousands of farmers were on their way to Kisan Ghat here from Uttar Pradesh with a charter of 15 demands including loan waiver.

Delhi Police fired tear gas and water cannons to stop the farmers who were trying to breach the barricades at the Delhi-UP border to enter the national capital.

New Delhi, Sep 26 : Barely a few hours after being shunted out, BJP’s former National Secretary and ex-Bengal President Rahul Sinha hinted at rebellion on Saturday.

In a video message, Sinha claimed that he will articulate his ‘stand’ and ‘next step’ in view of Saturday’s announcement in the coming 10 to 12 days.

Earlier on Saturday, BJP national President J.P. Nadda announced the new team of the party’s national office-bearers, with former Trinamool Congress leader Anupam Hazra getting promoted as one of the national secretaries, while Sinha was removed from the post.

Hitting out at Hazra’s elevation without naming him, Sinha said, “For 40 years, I have served the BJP as a soldier, from the very beginning. Today I had to be removed because a TMC leader had to be accommodated. There can not be anything more sad than this.”

Taking a further dig at the BJP, Sinha sarcastically called it a “gift”.

He said that in the next 10 to 12 days, he will make his stand about his removal known. “In the next 10 to 12 days, I will make myself clear… I will also clear my next step,” he said, hinting at a rebellion.

Hazra was a young Trinamool lawmaker who had his allegiance to Mukul Roy. After Roy’s exit from the party, Hazra has been in touch with Roy.

In March last year, he along with Congress’ Dulal Chandra and CPM’s Khagen Murmu joined the saffron party in Delhi.

With West Bengal set to go to the polls next year, the elevation of Roy and Hazra clearly hasn’t gone down well with Sinha.

Now, it remains to be seen whether the central BJP reaches out to him or waits for his “next step”.

Akali decision to quit NDA political compulsion: Amarinder

Amarinder Singh said if Sukhbir Badal, Harsimrat Badal and other SAD leaders had any shame left, they should admit to their deceitful actions as part of the Union government and beg the farmers for forgiveness.

Amarinder Singh

Chandigarh, Sep 26 : Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has termed the Akali Dal”s decision to quit the NDA as a case of “political compulsion” for the Badals, who were left with no other option after the BJP”s public criticism of the SAD over the farm bills.

Amarinder Singh said there was no moral high ground involved in the decision of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD).

The Akalis had no choice before them, since the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had already made it clear that it held SAD responsible for failing to convince the farmers about the goodness of the agriculture bills.

The SAD decision to quit NDA was just the culmination of their saga of lies and deception, which eventually led to the party being cornered on the issue of farm bills, said the chief minister.

SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal was virtually caught between the devil and the deep sea after his initial unprincipled stand on the farm ordinances, followed by the sudden U-turn in the face of farmer protests, he added.

The chief minister said with the BJP-led ruling coalition at the Centre exposing the SAD”s web of lies, fabrications and doublespeak, the Akalis could not have done anything except leave the NDA.

But far from helping them save face, which they probably hoped to do, the Akalis will now find themselves in a bigger political mess now, having been left with no place either in Punjab or at the Centre, he added.

Amarinder Singh said if Sukhbir Badal, Harsimrat Badal and other SAD leaders had any shame left, they should admit to their deceitful actions as part of the Union government and beg the farmers for forgiveness.
