Shah incapable, failed as Home Minister: AAP

Amit Shah

New Delhi, Dec 2 : Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Atishi, here on Monday, claimed the crime rate in the national capital had spiked since Amit Shah of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took charge as the Union Home Minister and termed him “incapable”.

Addressing the media, she said Shah must be answerable for all the heinous crimes in India. “Shah has been incapable and a failure as a Home Minister. He has miserably failed at preventing crime against women. As a Home Minister, he is accountable for all the heinous crimes.”

Condemning the Hyderabad rape incident, she said the country was raising questions on women security. The security of women in Delhi was also suspect, she said and added, “What’s being done to ensure their security by the Centre.”

She said every female, be it a girl or old woman, felt unsafe in Delhi, where law and order was controlled by the Home Ministry. “When you look at the numbers, the fear proves valid. About 2,000 rape cases have been registered in 2019 alone.”

The list of the incidents was so long that the city would be ashamed, she said.

Atishi said while the women were going ahead in all fields, Delhi was not even able to provide security to them.

Listing the works by the Arvind Kejriwal government, she said it installed CCTVs across the city. “Our government is also installing street lights to remove dark spots. We have also appointed marshall in government buses.”

She said the Delhi government had done all it could. “I want to question Home Minister Shah that the police is answerable to him and what has been done to ensure women security.”

She demanded to know the steps taken by the Union Home Minister and his police in the last 5-6 months to ensure women safety. “What were the steps taken to fill up the vacancy or increasing the number of PCR vans in the city.”

Atishi said women were scared to go to the police due to their misbehaviour. “The law and order situation has been deteriorating since Shah become the Home Minister,” the AAP leader said.

She claimed the number of reported rape cases had increased from 1,921 in 2018 to 1,947 till November 15. “Shah has failed as the Home Minister as he could not ensure women safety,” Atishi remarked.

Bengaluru, May 25 : The Karnataka government exempted Union and state ministers and officials from quarantine, which it made mandatory for all entering the state from other states or overseas to contain the Covid-19 outbreak, a top official said on Monday.

“The ministers of Union government or state governments or officers on duty will be exempted from quarantine as has been done for health professionals,” said state Health Commissioner P.K. Pandey in an order here.

The order has also exempted any person who gets a Covid negative test certificate from an ICMR approved lab which is not more than 2 days old from the date of journey, from institution quarantine.

The order has also exempted airlines crew on official duty from quarantine.

The order came on a day when Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers D.V. Sadananda Gowda was allowed to exit the airport on arriving from New Delhi without going into 7-day institutional quarantine, as other passengers who too came from the national capital, which is one of the 6 most Covid-hit states in the country.

Gowda, a Lok Sabha member from the Bangalore North constituency, flew into the city in a commercial flight on the first day of resumption of domestic services after 63 days of lockdown.

“I am exempted under the clause by the state government as well as the Central government,” Gowda told a local news channel when asked how he could avoid the mandatory quarantine on landing from Delhi.

Virtual rallies, PM’s letter, 1K conferences: BJP’s grand plans for 1 year of Modi 2.0

The BJP President has urged the leaders and party workers to strictly maintain social distancing norms while carrying out all these plans and proposals.

Narendra Modi Amit Shah

New Delhi, May 25 : May 30 is a red letter day for the ruling BJP as it will mark the completion of one year of the Narendra Modi-led governments second term in power.

The first year of the second term is particularly significant for the party, as it has honoured three top promises made in its manifesto during this period — abrogation of Article 370, the Triple Talaq Act and delivering the Ram Janmabhoomi promise.

While the party had grand plans to mark the special occasion, the Covid-19 outbreak has forced it to tweak them. BJP President J.P. Nadda has taken a three-pronged approach to celebrate the first anniversary with personal, digital and virtual outreach programmers.

Personal Outreach:

The BJP plans to take a copy of a letter written by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to as many as 10 crore households across India. In the letter, Modi will seek a pledge for “Aatma Nirbhar Bharat” besides sharing some tips on battling the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, given the social distancing norms in place, BJP General Secretary Arun Singh said that each group distributing the letter will comprise two cadres only, and they will stay clear from the containment zones and the quarantine centres.

BJP has a plethora of morchas like farmers, women etc. and Nadda has instructed all the morchas to distribute face covers and sanitises to all their members.

The party will also hold press conferences at 150 media centers across India where the senior party leadership will advertise not just the “achievements” of the last one year, but also India’s “successful ability” to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak. Moreover, with the Prime Minister going big on ‘Swadeshi’, each and every BJP member will be made to take a pledge to support indigenous products.

Digital Outreach:

The party has also asked all its booth level members to create WhatsApp groups with immediate effect where Modi government’s ‘achievements’ and details of Nadda’s interaction, among other things, will be shared. Three days have been designated — May 27, 28 and 29 — to create thousands of WhatsApp groups across the length and breadth of India on a war footing.

BJP’s national mouthpiece, “Kamal Sandesh”, will issue online bulletins in the coming days. The cadres as well as leadership have been asked to inform the support base about the same so that the information penetration is maximised.

While the party is going overboard with its outreach, it is mindful that the primary concern of all Indians is about the pandemic right now. Hence, the BJP has decided to issue a short video where India’s tackling of the pandemic will be shown as a success story. All state units have been asked to translate and dub the video in local languages.

Ever since the lockdown, Nadda has been regularly video conferencing with party general secretaries and state leaderships. One video of that will also be made to portray a picture of how “reachable” the BJP President is.

Virtual rallies, 1K video conferences:

The BJP may not be in a position to hold grand rallies, but it is up for virtual rallies. “At least one big rally in smaller states and two rallies in bigger states will be organised by the party which will attended by more than 750 people,” said a statement by the BJP. These virtual rallies will be held through video conferencing.

The BJP has planned at least 1,000 video conferences to be addressed by the national and state leadership. Each interaction will be of one hour duration, out of which 40 minutes will be dedicated for the speech of the guest, while 20 minutes will be kept for question and answer.

Nadda has also tasked every morcha to addresses up to 500 congregations through video conferencing in the next seven days. They have been asked to highlight the “promises delivered” by the Modi-led BJP government. The BJP has also asked its leadership to communicate to people the scale of the government’s economic package in layman’s language.

The BJP President has urged the leaders and party workers to strictly maintain social distancing norms while carrying out all these plans and proposals.

New Delhi, May 26 : Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party on Monday said that the health infrastructure of Gujarat has completely collapsed and accused the state’s ruling BJP of indulging in corruption.

AAP’s Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said the Gujarat High Court’s observations have revealed the “fraud” behind BJP’s Gujarat Model.

He said that Gujarat HC has observed that the condition of the Ahmedabad Civil hospital is “pathetic” and the hospital is “as good as a dungeon, maybe even worse”.

“Heath infrastructure of Gujarat completely collapsed. In Gujarat, the N-95 masks which cost around Rs 49 are being sold at Rs 65. This means that corruption is happening in Gujarat in the health sector. The Gujarat government which is led by the BJP has also failed the poor migrant labourers,” he claimed.

Noting the BJP is ruling Gujarat for the last 25 years, he said: “It has always talked about the Gujarat model of development both across the globe and India. Till date, 865 people have died in Gujarat due to coronavirus and the number of deaths in Gujarat is the highest among all the states of India.”

Singh said “it is crystal clear that the health infrastructure of Gujarat has completely failed. These are not my personal observations, these are the observations made by the Gujarat High Court.”

He said that now it is high time for the BJP to come in front of the people and say why they have failed to better health infrastructure in Gujarat.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are from Gujarat. The Central government earlier sent a team of experts to Gujarat to look into the health infrastructure of the state but until today has not revealed the findings of the team. I think that this is high time the BJP should come clean about the real situation of Gujarat,” said Singh.
