Muzaffarnagar , Uttar Pradesh, has been burning since last few days after hit by riots.Death toll as per news sites has gone as high as 48 and Curfew has been imposed on the area. The Opposition has been doing its duty of asking Akhilesh Yadav,the CM of UP,to resign. Congress has declared the riots as repetition of ‘2002 Gujarat Riots’. The govt,on the contrary , blames the communal forces for the riots.
Interestingly,the political parties keep playing blame games ,politicizing the moment for personal interests while the biggest sufferer is the common man in such situations.
The Parliament passed a Bill to allow candidates in Jail to contest polls against the July 10th decision of Supreme Court which refrained such candidates from voting and contesting.It was sited that the court verdict was wrong and the Legislature has Constitutional duty to correct it and hence the Bill. Interestingly,it took only 15 minutes for this bill to be passed and Leader Of Opposition, Sushma Swaraj pushed for its passage even without a debate. After all jailed candidates may be vote-bank leaders. Who cares why they are jailed?
Explains it all. The Parliament stood united against the Anna Hazare and His Anti-Corruption Movement and he and his movement is ideally a history. They stood united yet again for a cause. 😉 After all, this was like Judiciary sitting on top of their head. A strong message to all who think India is separable.At least not our politicians. 😀
Jai Shankar aka Psycho Shankar who is serving 10 years term in one of the 28 cases on him related to ‘rapes and murders’ had managed to elope from a Bangalore prison climbing three 30 feet walls has been caught after 5 days of his run. Some say it was a tussle between the jail management people which let this escape happen and it is also found that out of 22 only 5 jail cameras were operative during the escape. There is a sincere doubt that some jail authorities were involved in the entire episode.A probe is, as expected, on. 🙂
Now,who is responsible for this arrest? Is it the team of cops or is it the common sense of a psycho ? 😀
The Kerela cops attacked an Opposition protester waving a black flag at the Chief Minister of the state,to such an extent that he had to be hospitalized. One of the cops was seen attacking the protester’s private parts even as his other policemen held him tight. The brutal police action has received criticisms even from the Congressmen.
And please remember we are a democracy ! 🙂
The new Reserve Bank governor Raghuram Rajan ,announced a spate of measures to defend the rupee and stock markets and the INR is expected to open with a strong gain . The value of INR declining to 20 percent has made it the worst performing currency in the continent with a fear to provoke inflation.
Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley is of the view that PM Manmohan Singh is using silence as the weapon of concealment in the missing coal files issue. BTW,Sonia Gandhi is in the US for her medical chek-up
An Amritsar based NGO had stuck posters saying MP Sidhu is missing and the one who finds him will get Rs 2Lakhs as reward.This was to remind the cricketer turned politician that it had been one year since he visited the city to address public issues. 🙂 It worked well. MP Navjot Singh Sidhu who is ideally seen judging Comedy Serials has decided to pay a visit to Amritsar.
Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev says that sages and holymen should avoid being alone with women, including their mothers, daughters and mothers-in-law, as that was the prescription laid down in Hindu scriptures. This came after the arrest of Asaram Bapu in alleged rape case of a minor girl.
Although Baba Ramdev seem to have learnt his lessons during his protest at Ram Leela Maidan when the Sheila Dikshit govt sent cops mid night to crush the growing crowd and Baba ji had to run for his life.He was seen jumping off the stage and also seen escaping the place wearing Salwar Kameez(Indian traditional women attire) to fool the cops.
