suresh rana dine with dalit

Lucknow, May 3: Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Suresh Rana stoked a controversy after he allegedly went to a Dalit family’s home uninvited and even ordered food from eatery in Aligarh.

The visit was in line with Bharatiya Janata Party’s “outreach programme” for the community initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rana along with several other party leaders arrived at the residence of Rajnish Kumar Singh in Lohagadh around 11 pm on Monday.

Kumar who hosted the minister, told news agency ANI, “I didn’t even know they are coming for dinner, they came suddenly. All food, water and cutlery they had arranged from outside”.

Later, speaking to media Rana said “the whole village (in Aligarh) is inhabited by Dalits, I received a lot of affection, the food was prepared in the village itself, some people are trying to unnecessarily create issues, such people can’t stand development being done by Yogi ji & Modi ji”.

In 2017, similar controversy broke out when it was alleged that a sofa and AC was installed at a soldier’s home ahead of  UP Chief Minister Adityanath arrival there.

Yet in another controversy, villagers belonging to Mushar community had alleged they were given soap and shampoo by the local administration before the visit by the chief minister.

Madan Mohan Mittal

Chandigarh, Sep 27 : Minutes after the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) decided to quit the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) on differences over the three ‘controversial’ farm sector Bills passed by the Parliament, senior BJP leader Madan Mohan Mittal said the party is ready to contest all the 117 seats in the 2022 Punjab Assembly polls.

He even claimed that several Akali leaders are in touch them and want to jump ship to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“The SAD would not get a majority if they contest alone,” Mittal told the media.

In the 2017 Assembly polls, the BJP had contested 23 seats, while the remaining 94 were fought by the SAD.

Out of the 13 Parliamentary seats in Punjab, the Akalis contested 10 in the 2019 general elections, while the BJP fought on the remaining three.

Former minister Mittal has been quite vocal against the SAD for quite some time now, and has been saying that the BJP should part ways with the Akalis with which the saffron party had an alliance for three decades.

He has been claiming that the party has set up a strong base in the rural areas of Punjab.

The relations between the old allies came under strain in December last when Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal slammed the BJP during the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) debate in the Parliament.

New Delhi, Sep 26 : Barely a few hours after being shunted out, BJP’s former National Secretary and ex-Bengal President Rahul Sinha hinted at rebellion on Saturday.

In a video message, Sinha claimed that he will articulate his ‘stand’ and ‘next step’ in view of Saturday’s announcement in the coming 10 to 12 days.

Earlier on Saturday, BJP national President J.P. Nadda announced the new team of the party’s national office-bearers, with former Trinamool Congress leader Anupam Hazra getting promoted as one of the national secretaries, while Sinha was removed from the post.

Hitting out at Hazra’s elevation without naming him, Sinha said, “For 40 years, I have served the BJP as a soldier, from the very beginning. Today I had to be removed because a TMC leader had to be accommodated. There can not be anything more sad than this.”

Taking a further dig at the BJP, Sinha sarcastically called it a “gift”.

He said that in the next 10 to 12 days, he will make his stand about his removal known. “In the next 10 to 12 days, I will make myself clear… I will also clear my next step,” he said, hinting at a rebellion.

Hazra was a young Trinamool lawmaker who had his allegiance to Mukul Roy. After Roy’s exit from the party, Hazra has been in touch with Roy.

In March last year, he along with Congress’ Dulal Chandra and CPM’s Khagen Murmu joined the saffron party in Delhi.

With West Bengal set to go to the polls next year, the elevation of Roy and Hazra clearly hasn’t gone down well with Sinha.

Now, it remains to be seen whether the central BJP reaches out to him or waits for his “next step”.
