Indian-National-Congress

Jaipur, Feb 1: In a massive blow for the Vasundhara Raje-led BJP government, as the Congress on Thursday won the Mandalgarh Assembly seat, Ajmer and Alwar Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan bye-elections. 

Congress leader Vivek Dhakad has won Mandalgarh assembly seat by 12976 votes, defeating BJP’s Shakti Singh Hada.

Karan Singh Yadav of the Congress wrested the parliamentary seat of Alwar from  Jaswant Singh Yadav’s (BJP).

Karan Singh Yadav of the Congress wrested the Alwar seat with a margin of 196719 votes defeating Jaswant Singh Yadav of BJP.

Raghu Sharma of the Congress had 154,336 votes in his kitty against the 128,291 bagged by the BJP’s Ram Swaroop Lamba in Ajmer.

This is being described as a crucial contest ahead of the state elections which are slated later in 2018.

The counting of votes for the Rajasthan By-Elections that held on January 29, in two Lok Sabha and one assembly constituencies, started at 8 a.m.

A total of 42 candidates were in the fray for the three seats.

Both the parties have campaigned aggressively, as the bypolls verdict is anticipated to reveal the mood for the Assembly polls ahead.

The bypolls were necessitated after the death of BJP MPs Sanwarlal Jat from Ajmer, Mahant Chand Nath Yogi from Alwar, and MLA Kirti Kumari from Mandalgarh.

Putin rejects Donald Trump’s criticism of Biden family business

Published

Joe Biden Family

MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden’s past business ties with Ukraine or Russia, marking out his disagreement with one of Donald Trump’s attack lines in the U.S. presidential election.

Putin was responding to comments made by Trump during televised debates with Democratic challenger Joe Biden ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

Trump, who is trailing in opinion polls, has used the debates to make accusations that Biden and his son Hunter engaged in unethical practices in Ukraine. No evidence has been verified to support the allegations, and Joe Biden has called them false and discredited.

Putin, who has praised Trump in the past for saying he wanted better ties with Moscow, has said Russia will work with any U.S. leader, while noting what he called Joe Biden’s “sharp anti-Russian rhetoric”.

Putin appeared less friendly towards Trump in remarks broadcast by Russian state TV on Sunday. In what may be seen by some analysts as an attempt to try to curry favour with the Biden camp, he took the time to knock down what he made clear he regarded as false allegations from Trump about the Bidens.

“Yes, in Ukraine he (Hunter Biden) had or maybe still has a business, I don’t know. It doesn’t concern us. It concerns the Americans and the Ukrainians,” said Putin.

“But well yes he had at least one company, which he practically headed up, and judging from everything he made good money. I don’t see anything criminal about this, at least we don’t know anything about this (being criminal).”

Putin also reacted with visible irritation when asked about comments Trump has made concerning Putin’s ties to the former mayor of Moscow, and to an alleged payment made to Hunter Biden by the ex-mayor’s widow. Putin said he knew nothing about the existence of any commercial relationship between Hunter and the woman. Joe Biden says the accusation about his son is not true.

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to tilt the contest in Trump’s favour, an allegation Moscow has denied.

Russia has also dismissed accusations by U.S. intelligence agencies of trying to interfere with this year’s election too.

New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday targeted the Congress through Jamat-e-Islami. It alleged that the organisation created a welfare party to “help” Congress.

“For the convenience of the Congress, Jamaat-e-Islami has formed a political party, probably named it Welfare Party,” alleged Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.

He further alleged that the activities of Jamaat-e-Islami includes bloodshed, terror and acts against humanity.

“But when Modi ji’s government came, it was banned because of his activities in Kashmir,” he said.

Organisations such as this are promoting terrorism and known for their “jihadi mentality”, claimed Naqvi in a media briefing.

“Its relationship with Congress is reflective of the changed mentality of Congress,” Naqvi charged.

He further hit out at Rahul Gandhi, calling him ‘yuvaraj’, saying: “When the PFI people were caught in Uttar Pradesh and elsewhere, the Yuvraj of Congress reached out to console them.”

Naqvi further said that the alliance of the Congress with such organisations will have to be explained by the Congress.

Bhopal, Oct 25 : With just a few days left for the Madhya Pradesh Assembly bypolls, Congress MLA Rahul Lodhi from Damoh on Sunday resigned from his Assembly membership and joined the BJP.

After submitting his resignation to Pro Tem Speaker Rameshwar Sharma, Lodhi reached BJP’s state office and was inducted as its member in the presence of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, party state President Vishnu Dutt Sharma and Urban Administration Minister Bhupendra Singh.

However, the Pro Tem Speaker told the media that Lodhi had sought to resign two days ago but was asked to reconsider his decision. On Saturday, he reiterated his desire to resign and finally quit on Sunday.

Earlier this year, 22 Congress MLAs had resigned from their Assembly membership and joined the BJP under the leadership of Jyotiraditya Scindia, which led to the collapse of the then Kamal Nath-led Congress government.

Three more Congress MLAs later resigned from the Assembly. Now, the latest blow to the Congress has come with the resignation of Rahul Lodhi.

The Madhya Pradesh by-elections in 28 Assembly segments are slated for November 3.
