The two will be together in the ‘Pravasi Rajasthani Congress’ being organised in the UK by the Global India Initiative (GII) and Association of Rajasthan, confirmed officials sources.

The Rajasthan Association of the UK has invited both Pilot and Poonia in the special programme in the UK, which has been organised by the Rajasthani diaspora.

Both leaders will present their vision and ideology in front of the audiences and will also discuss the idea of developing Rajasthan, they said.

While Industries Minister Parsaadilal Meena said that both leaders will talk on the development keeping the party differences aside, BJP spokesperson Amit Goyal also opined that the two leaders shall show the world how Indians stand as one despite ideological differences.

“Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already taken the great Indian story beyond borders across the globe and now this one event shall also show a united stand of India on the global map,” he said.

Shaheen Bagh Protests

New Delhi, Jan 28: The Congress has alleged that the man who brandished pistol at the Shaheen Bagh protest site on Tuesday is a Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker and he did it on behest of his party.

When IANS traced the man in the video, named Haji Lukman, a resident of Shaheen Bagh, he said he had gone there with some other residents of the area and asked the protestors to leave one side of road for convenience of people. When they didn’t respond, I took out my licensed pistol in agitation, he added.

On why he carried his pistol, the Haji said, “It’s my fault. I forgot to deposit it with the authorities as per the election norm.”

Depositing a weapon during elections is mandatory. The non-deposit also raises question on the efficacy of the local police.

While Lukman said he was not a AAP worker, Okhla Congress head Parvez Alam Khan said the Haji was the right hand man of local MLA Amanatullah. The police should take action against him for trying to create disturbance during a peaceful protest, Khan added.

It was chaos at the Shaheen Bagh protest site earlier during the day when protesters overpowered a man with the firearm. It’s seen in the video of the incident that went viral on social media.

The man initially kept the pistol hidden as he shouted at protestors to leave the site. But as the protestors started pushing him out of the site, he pulled his shirt up and flashed the firearm.

For a brief the protestors were terror-struck, but they soon recovered their senses and overpowered the man and made him to leave the venue, instead of handing him to the police. They have also not filed any complaints against him.

Protestors stood strong and continued their sit-in on Monday night and Tuesday morning despite rain. Shaheen Bagh protest is continuing for over 40 days now.

JP legislator Narayan Tripathi

Bhopal, Jan 28: Madhya Pradesh BJP legislator Narayan Tripathi has again fallen out of step with his party, to oppose the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which “has vitiated the social atmosphere and led to a civil war-like situation in the country”.

At a time when the top BJP leaders in the state are holding rallies in support of the CAA, the MLA from Maihar has embarrassed the party by speaking out against the law.

“I am opposing the CAA on the call of my conscience. This is ending mutual trust and
brotherhood. People are looking at each other with suspicion. We will put our point on the party forum.

“This is my personal view. The CAA could be right for vote politics, but not for the
country,” he said.

Tripathi said that there is a need to talk about unemployment and not citizenship linked to religion.

“The country should not be divided in the name of religion. Either follow the Constitution or tear it off and throw it away. I come from the village and even today it is not easy to get the Aadhaar cards in the villages. Where will they get the rest of the papers from? I am speaking through my heart. If we wish to take the nation forward, the CAA should not be implemented.”

Tripathi has mostly been in the news for anti-party activities. In July 2019, he had voted against the BJP over a bill and admitted his support for Chief Minister Kamal Nath. He later returned to the party.

Now his tone has changed again and could cause trouble for the party. Tripathi, a Congress MLA before joining the BJP in 2014, is also named in the police charge sheet in the honey trap case.

Sandeep Dixit

New Jan 28 : Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit has released another video and questioned the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on its allegation of corruption in the 2010 Commonwealth Games when Sheila Dikshit was the Chief Minister of Delhi.

Dikshit said few media houses and Arvind Kejriwal were hand in glove against the Congress government and levelled baseless allegations. No proof had been provided by the state and central governments and no case been registered against the former Chief Minister, he added.

During the Games, Kejriwal had alleged massive corruption and involvement of the former Chief Minister in it.

Dikshit said neither the CAG nor the CBI could found any evidence against her. However, the wild allegations dented her image, the CWG Games and also maligned the nation.

The Congress leader in a series of video named “Kaam Ki baat’ has been questioning the AAP government on various issues. The Congress that ruled the national capital for 15 years is fighting for survival.
