Yashwant Sinha’s Jibe: Arun Jaitely a burden on people of Gujarat

Yashwant Sinha

New Delhi, Nov 15: Launching a scathing attack over implementation of the Goods and Service Tax (GST) , Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Tuesday said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley  is a “burden” on the people of Gujarat. 

Sinha also said country can demand Jaitle’s resignation due to failures of  demonetisation and GST.

Addressing an event , the former finance minister stated Indian economy has received “two shocks” in the form of demonetisation and GST in quick succession.

Sinha was invited to poll-bound Gujarat by the activists associated with ‘Lokshahi Bachao Andolan’ (Save Democracy Movement) to express his views about the contemporary situation of the country’s  economy.

“Our finance minister is not from Gujarat, as he was elected to Rajya Sabha from here. And, he is a burden on the people of Gujarat. If he was not elected from here, a Gujarati would have got the chance”, Sinha was saying news agency PTI quoted.

The senior BJP leader said Jaitely believes in only one rule, “that is ‘chitt bhi meri patt bhi meri’, means heads I win, tails you lose.”

Taking a potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sinha said  even the 14th century sultan of Delhi, Muhammad bin Tughlaq, had implemented note ban 700 years back.

“There were many ‘shahensha’ (king) who brought their own currency. Some even kept old currency in circulation while rolling out the new one. But, there was a shahenshah 700 years back – Muhammad Bin Tughlaq – who introduced his own (currency) while discontinuing the old currency”.

“Thus, we can say that note ban was done 700 years back. Though Tughlaq is known  for shifting his capital from Delhi to Daulatabad, he has also done demonetisation,” Sinha added.

However, this is not the first time Sinha cornered  the ruling government over Demonetisation and GST.

Last week, he urged PM to sack Jaitely because of imposing  “deeply flawed” Goods and Service Tax in the system.

Indian Youth Congress Handcuff ot Yogi

New Delhi, July 11 : A day after encounter death of gangster Vikas Dubey at the hands of UP Police STF, the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) workers, here on Saturday, sent handcuffs to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to indicate growing gundaraj in the state.

IYC leader Varun Pandey said it was evident the UP police didn”t handcuff high-risk criminal. Dubey tried to flee from the UP police custody after having surrendered a day before to the Madhya Pradesh Police in Ujjain.

In a similar case, an aide of Dubey also tried to flee from the police custody and was killed in the encounter.

“It shows the Police don”t have sufficient means to restrain criminals, particularly handcuffs. Hence, the IYC has decided to send handcuffs to the UP Chief Minister as a symbolic protest,” he said.

IYC General Secretary Bhaiya Pawar said with several questions surrounding Dubey”s encounter, like attempts to stop the media from covering the STF cavalcade, changing of vehicle from Safari to SUV, and encounter of other Dubey aides, one thing was clear there was gundaraj in UP.

He said the chain of events given by the police also raised several questions. “If they are not able to hold a single criminal, what”s their utility,” he added..

On Friday morning, Dubey was shot dead when he reportedly tried to flee after a road accident in which the vehicle he was travelling in overturned near Kanpur.

Five Dubey gang members have been killed in the encounters over the past seven days.
