Delhi, 9 Jan: Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj pulled up a Pune-based man on Sunday who requested his wife’s transfer from Jhansi railways to his hometown on social networking site twitter.

Swaraj said that the couple who have been working under her ministry, would have been fired for making such a request on a social networking platform.

“If you or your wife were from my Ministry and such a request for transfer was made on twitter, I would have sent a suspension order by now,” tweeted Swaraj.

The man’s request comes after a request by a US man seeking Swaraj’s help with his wife’s passport issues.

The US citizen had on Sunday posted a tweet saying,”@SushmaSwaraj @governorswaraj hello madam please help my wife get passport cleared. I am forced to live without her in US Passport issues.” Swaraj responded saying, “Ohh ! This banwas should end soon.”

Thinking that his problem can also be taken on the social site, the Pune man then tweeted to Swaraj. “Can you please help us in ending our banwas in India? My wife is a Jhansi Railway employee and I work in Pune in IT. Been a year,” he tweeted.

His request was later forwarded to Union Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu on Twitter by Swaraj.

But the Railways minister expressed that he is unable to help the man with the request because it is not under his jurisdiction.
“Thanks @SushmaSwaraj ji for bringing it to my notice. As per policy laid by me, I don’t look into transfers. Railway Board empowered for same,” Prabhu said on Twitter.

Swaraj remains active for solving problems which are raised on twitter and in reaching out to Indians in distress abroad.

Swaraj on Sunday asked people in distress abroad to send a tweet to the Indian Mission concerned and tag her so that she can “personally” monitor the grievance redressal.

Swaraj tweeted, “Please tweet your problem to the concerned Indian Embassy/authority and endorse the same to @sushmaswaraj. This will save time in emergency.

New Delhi, April 19: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and suspended BJP parliamentarian Kirti Azad has been discharged in a criminal defamation complaint filed by the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) and its then Vice-President Chetan Chauhan.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal allowed Kejriwal’s application for discharge, saying that there was not an iota of evidence that the DDCA or any official were personally defamed by his statement.

Chauhan, in February 2016, filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and Azad and accused them of defaming the cricket body by passing “scandalous” remarks.

Referring to Kejriwal’s interview to a news channel wherein he allegedly said that sexual favours were sought for selecting players, the complainant alleged that “false” charges were levelled against the cricket association.

The plea claimed that Kejriwal’s “false” statements were immediately endorsed and repeated by Azad.

The complainant said the accused (Kejriwal and Azad) had severely damaged the credibility and reputation of the complainant (DDCA) in the eyes of thousands of cricket lovers and citizens of India as well as internationally.

Supreme Court verdict on Judge Loya case leaves many questions unanswered, fair probe needed: Congress

Published

New Delhi, April 19: Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said the Supreme Court verdict on Judge Loya death case has left many questions unanswered adding, there were discrepancies in the post-mortem report.

Addressing a press conference, the Congress leader stated “the verdict marks a sad day in India’s history. The Supreme Court verdict has left many questions unanswered. There were discrepancies in the post-mortem report, even in recording the name of the victim properly”.

Earlier in a day, the Supreme Court dismissed the petitions seeking an independent investigation into the death of special CBI judge.

Stating that the Congress reiterates demand for a fair probe into Loya’s death, Surjewala said the issue of criminality or lack of it can only be decided through an investigation.

“Loya’s sister gave an interview, alleging that he was offered a bribe of Rs 100 crore along with a flat in Mumbai if he were to deliver a verdict in favour of the accused”, he said.

His kin had publicly said that clothes had blood stains, especially near his neck, the Congress leader further said.

The ECG and histopathology report showed no evidence of a heart attack whatsoever. AIIMS doctor RK Sharma clearly stated that there was no sign of a heart attack and there was evidence that Loya was hit on the head by a blunt weapon,” Surjewala added.

Asking how there was no record of the judge travelling by train from Mumbai to Nagpur, the communications in-charge of All India Congress Committee (AICC) claimed that Loya had no security protection during his visit to Nagpur.

Surjewala said that there was no record of Judge Loya staying in the hotel and there was no reason for three judges to sleep in two beds during their stay when adjoining rooms were empty.

The Congress leader said ” the Post-Mortem was conducted without information and consent of any family member, adding there were discrepancies in recording the name of the victim properly.
