Protest

The politics is taking hype in demolition of Delhi slums, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday gave an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha over the Shakur Basti demolition issue and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sought an appointment with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.

AAP MPs will also be protesting at the statue of Mahatma Gandhi outside the Parliament and they will be joined by the Trinamool Congress (TMC).

TMC leader Derek O’Brien tweeted today:

Meanwhile, the Delhi Government has ordered magisterial enquiries into the demolition and also the death of a six month-old child. Separate probes will be conducted into demolition drive and the child’s death.

More than 500 slums were demolished in an anti-encroachment drive conducted by the Indian Railways in Shakur Basti on Saturday.

Slum residents created an uproar after a child was found dead. They alleged that then child had died in the anti-encroachment drive.

The Railways have, however, denied the allegations saying that the death of the child occurred in one of the slums around 10 am and had nothing to do with the removal of encroachments.

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav Sad

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has questioned the ‘intentions’ of the Modi government to defer farm laws by one and a half year.

“The BJP government has extended a proposal to defer the implementation of the farm laws for the next one and a half year. The move is illogical and without any rationale. Deferring implementation of the law will not change the consequences that will follow once the law is introduced,” he said.

Akhilesh further said, “By deferring implementation of the law, the BJP government is trying to counter popular public sentiment which is growing in favour of the agitating farmers and against the law makers. The government will eventually implement the laws before the elections in 2024 to benefit the capitalists.”

The SP president has directed the party leaders and workers to dedicate their Republic Day celebrations to farmers who are protesting against the new farm laws. He asked party men to reach the venues where Indian flag will be unfurled at the tehsil level on tractors carrying the Tricolour.

He said that by taking out tractor rallies, the SP workers and leaders will only reassert their support to the agitating farmers.

Akhilesh also attacked the ruling BJP for the delay in clearing cane dues of farmers, increase in power tariff and raids by power department officials on farmers for recovery of power dues.
