Vaghela flays ‘wastage’ of public money on Trump visit

Gandhinagar, Feb 22 : US President Donald Trump’s scheduled visit to Gandhi Ashram has been cancelled by people who don’t like to speak the truth and opposed the truth, said former Gujarat Chief Minister Shankersinh Vaghela here on Saturday.

Gujarat was shamed by the money being wasted on the welcome, as Gandhi and Gujarat were known for austerity, he said. Vaghela was at the Gandhi Ashram in Sabarmati to pay tribute on Kasturba Gandhi’s death anniversary.

“Trump’s likely visit to the Ashram has been cancelled as Narendra Modi doesn’t like the truth. Truth is what Gandhi stood for. But it’s Godse mentality, which is wiping out the Gandhian ideology,” Vaghela said.

He said Gujarat was known for Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel and its austerity. “Gujarat is shamed by the huge unnecessary expenditure by the administration to welcome Trump. Why such wastage, when America has shown it doesn’t like India. We will hold the Nagrik Abhivadan Samity, which has invited Trump, accountable for public money spent on this welcome,” said Vaghela.

“The America that denied you (Modi) a diplomatic visa when you were Gujarat CM and insulted Gujarat thereby, why are you being a doormat for them and become his stooge? To propagandise him for his political gains? Trump has stated there won’t be any business deal with India,” he said.

“I pity our Chief Minister Vijay Rupani. The poor fellow doesn’t know what is going on around him,” said Vaghela, head of the National Congress Party’s (NCP) Gujarat unit. He quit the Congress in 2017 before the December 2017 Assembly elections.

Akhilesh Yadav

Lucknow/New Delhi, July 10 : The opposition parties on Friday slammed the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter of dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey, while being brought back to the state from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.

Former Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav took to twitter and wrote, “Actually. his car has not overturned, but the government has been saved from turning over the secret.”

His remarks came soon after Dubey died on Friday morning after being critically injured in an alleged shootout with the STF officials on Friday morning near Kanpur. The gangster was shot when he reportedly tried to flee, following a road accident in which the vehicle he was travelling in overturned near Kanpur. Dubey was taken to the emergency ward of the Hallett Hospital. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kanpur Dinesh Kumar said that the doctors have confirmed the death of Vikas Dubey.

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Jayant Chaudhary also slammed the BJP government over the “encounter rule” in the state and urged all the judges to resign. “After Vikas Dubey”s encounter, all the judges of the country should resign. There is no need of court in BJP”s encounter rule,” Chaudhary said in a series of tweets. “All this drama has been created to save the real culprits of killing eight policemen,” the RLD leader said in another tweet.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Kumar Jha also criticised the Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter saying the “black truth” of the entire “syndicate” has also been “encountered” along with Dubey. “If the news of the Vikas Dubey death in the encounter is true, then accept that the black truth of the entire syndicate has also been encountered. The system has saved itself from being naked. How the story is so simple from yesterday”s visuals of Mahakal temple to the story till today morning. Proceed with this as the final truth (sic),” Jha tweeted.

According to reports, as the convoy bringing Dubey from Madhya Pradesh”s Ujjain reached the Bhauti area under the Barra police circle in Kanpur on Friday morning, the vehicle in which Vikas was seated, overturned after skidding on the road due to heavy rain.

Dubey, along with two other police personnel in the vehicle, was injured in the accident. As soon as the gangster was taken out of the vehicle, he allegedly snatched a pistol from the STF team and tried to fire at the police. He was fatally injured in retaliatory firing. Dubey received a bullet injury in the chest which proved fatal. Five members of the Dubey gang have been killed in police encounters over the past seven days.
