Chandraswami-wefornews-min

New Delhi, May 23, 2017: Spiritual leader Chandraswami on Tuesday passed away at the age of 66 due to Kidney failure.

Chandraswami was on dialysis and recently suffered a stroke followed by severe sepsis and developed Multi-Organ failure.

Born in 1948 with name Nemi Chand was a controversial Indian tantrik. He was called a godman by some people. His father came from Behror in Rajasthan and worked as a money lender.

In October 2014, he was involved in controversy when police registered a case of cheating and criminal breach of conduct on the complaint of Sanjay Kumar Aggarwal, a Vishakhapatnam-based businessman, who claimed that the godman’s aides took away the gemstones from him with the promise of buying them, only to disappear.

Chandraswami name had popped up in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case too. In his arguments before the Jain commission probing the conspiracy behind Rajiv’s killing, AICC counsel R.N. Mittal had in 1997 alleged that Chandraswami through his wide international links and involvement in major arms and financial deals arranged the funds which the LTTE needed badly.

Pinarayi Vijayan

Thiruvananthapuram, April 1 (IANS) The Pinarayi Vijayan cabinet that met here on Wednesday has given the in-principle clearance to have a salary challenge from all state government employees to collect funds to handle the various activities of Covid-19 of the Kerala government.

All state government employees have to contribute one month’s salary to the CM Distress Relief Fund and it could be done in instalments also.

Kerala has at present 215 positive coronavirus positive cases, with over 1.60 lakh people under observation at homes and hospitals.

As a first step the entire cabinet decided that each one of them will contribute Rs one lakh each and it has already been done by Vijayan.

On Tuesday, Vijayan held talks with a section of the employee’s representatives and it has been more or less agreed upon, even as talks have to take place with a few other organisations.

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala reacting to the salary challenge told the media that they have no issues with this.

“We have the same stand that we took when such a challenge was announced in 2018, when floods ravaged the state. We strongly demanded then that, it should not be put into the CMDRF, instead it should be in a separate account. It was not done and now what we hear is that at Kochi a CPI-M worker got Rs one million and the report of another fraud of Rs five million also has surfaced. Such things should not happen,” said Chennithala.
