Ram Raja temple MP

Five people have been booked for allegedly collecting donations for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya through a ‘fake’ local outfit.

One of the five accused, having a criminal record, has been arrested.

A written complaint was filed in this regard by district president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).

As part of a nationwide campaign of VHP to collect voluntary donations from people for the construction of the grand Ram temple, teams of VHP and RSS workers have been constituted in Pilibhit.

When one such team reached the Kala Mandir locality under Sungarhi police station to collect the donation, devotees told team members that they had already given money to another local outfit.

The VHP functionary told the police that members of the other outfit had issued ‘fake’ receipts to voluntary donors even though they were not authorized to collect money for Ram temple construction.

Sungarhi SHO, Shrikant Dwiwedi, said that the receipt issued by the local outfit revealed the names of its office bearers. All of them were found to be the residents of Pilibhit city.

The police have now booked them under IPC sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forging a document purporting to be a receipt acknowledging the payment of money), 468 (committing forgery, intending that the document forged shall be used for the purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document).

Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will virtually inaugurate the year-long centenary celebrations of Chauri-Chaura incident in Gorakhpur on February 4.

One of the most ambitious programmes of the Yogi Adityanath government in 2021, the event is designed to express a sense of gratitude towards those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of this country.

Adityanath has planned a series of events during the whole year starting February 4.

School children will be made aware of the importance of this event and candles and lamps will be lit up at all the martyred monuments and statues of legendary leaders.

Beautification of the Chauri Chaura Shaheed Smarak Samiti is planned and the chief minister wants to develop it as a heritage tourist spot.

The Chauri-Chaura incident took place on February 4, 1922, at Chauri-Chaura in the Gorakhpur district of the then United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh) in British India, when over 3,000 protesters participating in the non-cooperation movement, clashed with police who opened fire.

In the protest, three agitators were martyred and the enraged mob set the police station on fire which left 20 policemen dead.

Mahatma Gandhi withdrew his non-cooperation movement after the incident and later, 228 agitators were prosecuted by the British government while 172 protesters were sentenced to death by the Gorakhpur Sessions Court.

After this incident, the revolutionaries intensified their movement and shook the confidence of the British Government.

Sonia Gandhi in Cong meeting

Ahead of the eleventh round of meetings between the farmers and the Centre, a crucial meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) began here on Friday to discuss the farmers’ agitation among other issues. Also likely to be discussed is the schedule of the election of a new party president.

Congress General Secretary and national media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “CWC meeting begins. Congress President Sonia Gandhi addresses the CWC.”

According to party sources, the virtual meeting being chaired by Sonia Gandhi will discuss Arnab Goswami’s alleged chat leak related to the national security, the Covid-19 situation apart from the ongoing farmers’ agitation.

Sources also said that during the meeting, the schedule of election for the new party chief will also be discussed.

Thousands of farmers have been protesting against the three farm laws on the borders of the national capital since November 26 last year, demanding that the three laws be repealed.

On Tuesday, former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi slammed the government over the three farm laws, saying they were introduced to destroy the Indian agricultural sector.

On Wednesday, the Congress fielded former Defence Minister A.K. Antony, former Home Minister Sushil Shinde, former Law Minister and External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad to corner the government over the alleged chat leaks involving Goswami.

The Congress described the leak of secret information as treason and demanded an immediate enquiry into the matter.
