Bilaspur (Chattisgarh), April 20: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Wednesday lambasted Bhartiya Janata Party for using a ploy of demonetisation for roping in funds to elevate politically.

Sibal alleged that BJP transferred whopping 125 crore during the noteban course in its Party fund.

Criticising BJP’s central and state government in Chattisgarh, Sibal said no party should work for its political gains, but BJP’s central and state government both are working in this direction.

Sibal highlighted inefficiency of Chattisgarh government. He said, BJP’s state government in Chattisgarh is selling liquor at the cost of youth. The state government wants to sell alcohol as it provides funds but they are not worried about the issues it is causing.

Taking a Jibe on PM Modi’s slogan that India is changing with BJP’s rule, Sibal said it is easy to say that from Delhi. Citing Chattisgarh’s plight, Sibal said the state government is busy selling alcohol to change the country.

He further said, 11000 girls are missing in the state of Chattisgarh but neither centre nor state has any consideration on the matter.

Mocking up Achche Din joomla of PM Narendra Modi, Sibal said it is true that what congress could not do in 60 years, BJP has done in 60 days. Sibal said, during entire Congress regime price of pulses never crossed Rs 200 mark but BJP got the accolade within a few days. These are acheche din of BJP, added Sibal.

Citing the plights of farmers of Chattisgarh, Sibal said they are ill treated. Be it a matter of Rs 300 bonus or base price of crop, government has cheated the farmers, said Sibal.

Continuing the tirade, Sibal said it is the state where massive ignorance in medical and health sector is being reported. People lost their eyes and were forced for sterilization under the BJP rule.

New US Visa Rules, huge setback for India: Rahul

Published

on

New Delhi, April 26: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday termed the proposed US visa rules as a “huge setback” for India.

Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Congress leader said “some things a hug can buy”, but for visas “you’re on your own”.

Gandhi tweeted, “New US Visa Rules, a huge setback for India…as Foreign Policy by Modi, Foreword by Trump”

His remarks come amid Donald Trump’s government plan to propose to end giving work permits to the spouses of H1-B visa holders to work in America, a decision that could have a devastating impact on scores of Indians.

Besides this, global entrepreneurs will not be able to apply for parole to nurture their startups for a certain period.

According to the reports, both of these Obama-era policies will be revoked in a bid to clinch the objectives of ‘Buy American, Hire Amercian’.

PILs filed in Judge Loya case were politically motivated: Sibal

Published

on

New Delhi, April 26: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Thursday said the PILs filed in Judge Loya case were politically-motivated.

Addressing a press conference, the former Union Minister stated ” After the investigation of Judge Loya case, there were several PILs lodged. But by the recent SC judgement, PILs have been considered to be politically-motivated”.

Sibal claimed that a PIL was filed in Nagpur bench by Suraj Lolage, who is an RSS ideologue, on 27 November 2017. Lolage had contested for a BJP ticket in Municipal elections.

“After the press conference in AICC on 30 Jan 2018, a phone conversation between Suraj Lolage and Satish Uke’s brother revealed that Lolage’s petition intended to elevate Judge Loya case to the apex court, where independent probe was rejected”, he added.

The Congress leader further stated that “What does this show? Clearly, Bhaiyyaji Joshi and the RSS were very keen that this matter be heard in the Supreme Court as quickly as possible because they are the ones who initiated the PIL.

Sibal cited two possibilities either RSS’s Bhaiyyaji Joshi wanted that an enquiry into Judge Loya’s death be conducted or wanted an outcome which ensures that the matter is closed without an enquiry.
