on

Chennai, Nov 23 : The Election Commission (EC)  decided to grant the “two leaves” symbol of the AIADMK faction led by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, a party leader said on Thursday.

Addressing media, Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami said “EC has given judgement in our favour, we are very happy. Majority of party workers supported us”.

On allegations that judgement was awarded in their favour due to proximity with BJP, he stated ” “It is wrong. We had facts on our side and majority of MLAs,MPs and party workers were with us.All this was taken into consideration”.

“We are happy with the EC decision. We are waiting to get the full order,” former MP and party spokesperson K.C. Palaniswamy told news agency IANS.

On March 22 this year, the poll panel had issued an order to “freeze” the symbol that has been associated with the AIADMK, since it was founded by late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

After the death of Jayalaitha the party was divided into factions one by  O Panneerselvam and another Sasikala.

Following the EC’s decision, both the factions were scrambling to get a party symbol of their choice.

However, after witnessing prolonged tussle, E Palaniwami-O Panneerselvam merged attained the party symbol.

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi today took a swipe at the government over reports that the economy has gone into a recession and crores have been left unemployed. He pointed to the basic job scheme MGNREGA, which was launched by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, as having made to remain idle with “three crore people still looking for work”.

“Under PM Modi, India’s economy is officially in a recession for the first time ever. More importantly, 3 crore people are still looking for work under MNREGA. Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea,” Mr Gandhi tweeted, in what was seen as an allusion to PM Modi’s often overnight announcements that result in sweeping policy changes immediately.

From sudden demonetisation in November 2016 to the announcement of the lockdown in late March necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, which led to hardships, opposition leaders have been attacking PM Modi over decisions that they say were taken without considering their impact on a vast number of the population.

The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) also shrank for the second straight quarter through September, although it showed signs of a pick-up after the easing of pandemic restrictions that triggered a record contraction in the previous quarter.

The GDP in July-September quarter contracted 7.5 per cent on year, data released by the National Statistical Office today showed, compared to a decline of 23.9 per cent in the previous three months.

Annual growth of 3.4 per cent in farm sector and 0.6 per cent in manufacturing during September quarter raised hopes of an early recovery as the government gears up to distribute COVID-19 vaccine whenever it becomes available.

The centre is expecting the recent easing of farm and labour laws, along with tax incentives, to bolster manufacturing and lure more foreign investment.

India is not alone in suffering from economic troubles because of the pandemic. Several other nations have seen their economy shrink as manufacturing slows down.

Patna: After RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav’s personal attack, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar hit back at him and said that Yadav is lying.

Nitish Kumar was looking very angry during a speech in the Bihar assembly. He addressed Tejashwi as ‘Tum’ in Hindi during the speech.

“Who was responsible for making his father (Lalu Prasad) leader of the Lok Dal and who was responsible for making him (Tejashwi Yadav) deputy CM. Everyone knows it,” Kumar said in the assembly.

Earlier, Tejashwi said that CM Nitish Kumar was scared of the girl child, hence he avoided becoming a father a second time.

Following the CM’s speech, Manoj Jha, Rajya Sabha MP and RJD chief spokesperson said: “The unparliamentary language used by Nitish Kumar reflects his status. He is not more than a remote control CM and people of Bihar know who is having actual power in Bihar.”

“We have heard about jobs on compassionate grounds. Nitish Kumar was nominated as the CM on the same grounds,” Jha said.

Tejashwi Yadav clarified that Nitish Kumar called him a small child.

“I said that he was afraid of the girl child. Hence he has not become a father again. It was a reflection of Nitish Kumar’s statement during the election campaign.”

“It does not apply to Lalu Prasad. If that was the case, after the birth of my elder brother and me, we would not have had a younger sister,” Tejashwi said.

“On the other hand, he has dragged my sisters’ names in the Bihar assembly. He has used unparliamentary language towards me,” Tejashwi said.

Tejashwi added that if Nitish Kumar had made me deputy CM, I want to ask him who has made two current Deputy CMs (Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi) in Bihar now.
