Opposition coming together no threat to BJP: Amit Shah

New Delhi, May 26: BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday said opposition parties coming together against the ruling combine would make no difference to it in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and expressed confidence that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be elected again.

Addressing a press conference on the completion of four years of the NDA government, he said virtually the choice for the voter would be between Modi and an unknown face on the other side.

He also made light of Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s remarks that he was ready to be Prime Minister if his party emerges as the biggest group.

Replying to a question about the coming together of opposition parties after the Karnataka Assembly elections against the the Bharatiya Janata Party, Shah said: “They fought against us in 2014. They were united. They are the leaders of their regions.

“If Mamata (Banerjee) and (Chandrababu) Naidu come together on one platform, what difference it makes in Bengal and Andhra Pradesh?

“If (Sitaram) Yechury and (H.D.) Kumaraswamy come together what difference will it make to Bengal and Karantaka politics? It doesn’t work like that. They are all regional leaders and contested against the BJP.

“Mamata, Akhilesh (Yadav), Mayawati, Sharad Pawar and Rahul (Gandhi)… they all fought against us. They are main opponents (of the BJP) in their state. Others don’t matter there.”

Asked about the series of reverses the BJP had suffered in Lok Sabha by-elections, he said voting in by-polls is different from general elections and still one year was left for the Lok Sabha polls.

“When a voter casts his vote to form government keeping in mind who will be the Prime Minister whether Narendra Modi or someone else, the parameters will be different from the by-elections.”

Replying to a question about Gandhi’s candidature as Prime Minister, he said: “It doesn’t matter as to what I think. His party has not supported him when he said he wants to be Prime Minister. Neither did Sharad Pawar support him nor did Mamata or Akhilesh Yadav.”

In his opening remarks, Shah said he expected people to re-elect Modi in 2019.

He said the NDA government, which replaced politics of appeasement with development for all, will provide houses to every citizens by 2022.

Counting the achievements of the Modi government, Shah said the BJP had replaced the politics of “appeasement, dynasty and caste” with the politics of “development and performance”.

Stressing that BJP is committed to work for the uplift of the Dalits, the poor and the farmers in the country, he said that the Opposition is spreading lies only to remove Modi.

Highlighting the Modi government’s work, Shah said: “We have benefitted 22 crore people with several schemes”, while the country’s self-pride has been restored and its status globally taken to the highest level.

He said when Modi government took office, people of the country had lost their faith in the multi-party democracy system, but this was also restored.

The BJP leader also said that the Modi government has taken concrete steps in every sector and shown that a government can be both pro-farmer and pro-industry.

The BJP, he said, had the distinction of giving a government free of corruption capable of “taking decisions for the poor and farmers”.

“We expect the people to vote Prime Minister Modi back to power with a full majority,” Shah said.

“By 2022, everyone (in India) will be living in their own houses.”

Mumbai, Sep 20 : Doctors in Mumbai have extracted a gigantic 11-kg tumour from the abdomen of a 55-year-old woman after a marathon nine-hour surgery.

A team of medicos headed by oncologist Dr Tanveer A. Majeed, urologist Dr Santosh Palkar and Dr Shilpa Deshmukh performed the complicated surgery at the Zen Multispeciality Hospital in Chembur.

The patient Sujata Sinha (name changed) is a housewife who noticed her abdomen growing daily accompanied by breathing difficulties.

At the height of lockdown in June, she consulted a local doctor who confirmed the presence of a tumour with ultrasound and CT scan.

However, owing to the lockdown she did not take any further steps or medicines, even as the tumour continued to grow rapidly, making her look obese.

Finally, she was referred to the ZMH and Dr Majeed checked her condition on September 8 to find she was weighing around 80 kgs, and suffered from diabetes and hypertension.

Further tests revealed the huge abdominal tumour encroaching the right half of the abdomen, pushing the right kidney to the left side, duodenum, liver, small intestine and colon to the left side, besides her major blood vessels supplying to the heart.

After further clinical diagnosis, the patient was advised surgery by Dr Majeed as it indicated a rare cancer of connective tissues that resemble fat cells under a microscope.

“After opening the abdomen, we found a huge tumour which had displaced all the other body organs to the left side. It weighed 11 kgs and had dimensions of 55 cm x 40 cm x 35 cm, and the patient lost around one litre of blood during the nine-hour operation,” said Dr Majeed.

The patient is recuperating well at the hospital now, has started an oral liquid diet, can breathe normally, and will be required for a follow-up after three months.

“We delayed treatment due to the pandemic lockdown. But I am fortunate to be operated at ZMH where the doctors saved my life. I feel much lighter now, can eat and breathe properly and resume normal life,” said the patient gratefully.

Prior to this, a team of doctors at the Global Hospital, Parel, had extracted a massive 12-kg tumour from a woman’s abdomen in December 2014.

New Delhi, Sep 20 : In the wake of protests by farmers in Punjab and Haryana against three agriculture-related Bills, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday assured the farmers — through tweets in Punjabi language — that the proposed laws were historic and in their interest.

“No dilution of MSP regime; government procurement of agricultural produce to continue,” Modi said in one of the series of tweets in Punjabi, hours after the passage of two of the three contentious agricultural Bills by the Rajya Sabha.

Reiterating his government’s commitment and dubbing the passage of the farm Bills as a “watershed moment”, the Prime Minister said: “We are here to serve the farmers. We will do our best to help the farmers and ensure a better life for their future generations.”

Modi said that the Indian farming system immediate needed the latest technology.

“Our agriculture sector is in desperate need of the latest technology that assists the industrious farmers. Now, with the passage of the Bills, our farmers will have easier access to futuristic technology that will boost production and yield better results. This is a welcome step.”

“For decades, the Indian farmer was bound by various constraints and bullied by middlemen. The Bills passed by Parliament liberate the farmers from such adversities. These Bills will add impetus to the efforts to double the income of farmers and ensure greater prosperity for them,” tweeted the Prime Minister.

Earlier in the day, the Upper House of Parliament also its nod to The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020. The Lok Sabha passed the two Bills on Thursday.
