New Delhi, Dec 13 : Taking on his own BJP party, actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday asked the “one man show and two man army”, referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah, to return to Delhi from Gujarat if they have exhausted all their “tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises”.

“Humble appeal to our one man show and two man army (Modi and Shah). Please return “home” to Delhi, if we’ve exhausted all our tricks, tantrums, wrong statements and tall promises. Time to also bring back the ministers, ministries and government sitting in Gujarat and fighting amongst themselves to get credit,” Sinha said in a tweet.

“If we are victorious, we know you shall get full credit..but if we are not, then who will take the rap? There’s an old saying – “Taali kaptaan ko to gaali bhi kaptaan ko”. Hope wish and pray that we get only Taalis (claps) in Gujarat elections. Jai Hind!” the BJP leader said.

Sinha, who has been sidelined in the party, has been continuously taking pot shot at the party leadership via social media.

Modi and Shah have been on hectic campaigning in Gujarat for the state assembly elections, with the BJP facing strong anti-incumbency.

The campaigning for the second and final phase of Gujarat Assembly elections came to an end on Tuesday evening. The polls for the 93 seats are due on Thursday. Counting of votes will take place on December 18.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been in power in the state since 1995.

Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday landed at the Kozhikode airport to begin his two-day visit to Kerala, and held closed-door meetings with Congress and IUML leaders.

These included former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Ramesh Chennithala, M Ramachandran, and Indian Union Muslim League leaders PK Kunhalikutty and KPA Majeed.

With Assembly elections around the bend, various political parties are doing their home work to finalise seat-sharing with coalition partners.

Rahul Gandhi has been insisting on the promotion of new faces and women leaders in the elections to the 140-member Assembly. The state Youth Congress leadership has already submitted a list of probable candidates from among its leaders and openly demanded that they be given a fair proportion of tickets.

Rahul Gandhi, a member of Parliament from Wayanad, will participate in a few functions regarding his MP Local Area Development Schemes in the constituency during his visit.

The former AICC President has been discussing with Muslim League leaders the seat-sharing within the United Democratic Front.

KPCC President Mullappally Ramachandran told IANS: “Rahul Gandhi has met with IUML leaders as this party is a major constituent of the UDF coalition. The Congress-IUML relations are very cordial. As far as seat-sharing is concerned, we are yet to mull the finer details and are holding broader discussions only at present.”

The Congress has already inducted former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor into the Manifesto Committee, sending out a clear message that he will have a major say in the UDF campaign and even during government formation in case the UDF returns to power.

Both Rahul and his sister Priyanka Gandhi will remain in the coastal state during the entire campaigning period since, Congress sources said, they will be major trump cards for the party.

VK Sasikala released from prison after serving 4-year jail-term

Sasikala

Expelled AIADMK leader VK Sasikala and a close aide of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa was released on January 27 after serving four years in a Bengaluru jail in a corruption case.

Sasikala, 64, will, however, remain in Victoria Hospital, where she is undergoing treatment for COVID-19 infection. The procedures for her release from jail were completed at the hospital.

She has been lodged in the Central Jail in Parappana Agrahara for four years since February 2017 in connection with the Rs 66 crore disproportionate assets case.

A huge crowd of Sasikala supporters lined up outside the Victoria Hospital, raising slogans in her favour and distributed sweets in celebration.

The release comes months ahead of Tamil Nadu assembly elections and on a day when chief minister K Palaniswami inaugurated a Rs 79 crore memorial along Chennai’s Marina beach in the name of Jayalalithaa.

Sasikala will be out of the hospital later this week, but what remains to be seen is what is next for her in the poll-bound state. A lot has changed in AIADMK while she was serving the jail term. Rebel leader O Paneerselvam, who she had ousted from the CM post before going to the jail, is back in the party. The CM she handpicked, K Palaniswami has joined hands with the Paneerselvam.

Many say though she commanded respect for three decades she will not return to politics. CM Palaniswami said recently that she won’t be back in the party. Others said AIADMK will ally with AMMK, the party founded by Sasikala’s nephew TTV Dhinakaran.
