Mayawati has warned the Central Govt of taking a tough stand if the govt does not pass the Quota Bill which would entitle reservations in promotions in govt jobs for Scheduled castes and tribes ! The same bill is being opposed by SP headed by Mulayam Singh Yadav.The conflict between Mayawati and Mulayam Singh has been refueled with the Quota Bill and its the UPA govt which is at the receiving end.
Expressing his assurance on FDI in retail which got approved by the parliament,Prime Minister,Dr Manmohan Singh said that FDI would benefit both the farmers and consumers and that the farmers organization in Punjab had strongly supported FDI in retail.
Well, forget about an average farmer, even half of the percentage of literate India cannot point out the exact benefit and demerit of Foreign Direct Investment in Retail Trade ! Can we ?
While 9 MPs of Samajwadi Party restrained from voting , 15 MPs of Bahujan Samaj Party voted in favour of the Foreign Direct Investment in Retail debate in the Rajya Sabha,giving the UPA govt a clear win over opposition which was against FDI in retail! It was again BSP Supremo ,Mayawati and SP Supremo,Mulayam Singh,(by keeping away from voting) who helped the govt secure Parliament approval on FDI in retail.
Anna Hazare ,the anti-corruption crusader, who seems pathless after Arvind Kejriwal (ex key Team Anna Member) decided to join politics to curb corruption,leaving Anna and his anti-corruption movement directionless,has declared he wont vote for Kejriwal’s party as he feels Kejriwal is power hungry.Previously,as well, he had given similar statements against Kejriwal and Kejriwal remain silent.
Is this a genuine feedback about Arvind Kejriwal by his ex-boss, Anna Hazare or is it just dissatisfaction as the focus of the world has shifted from Anna and ‘India Against Corruption’ Movement to Arvind Kejriwal and his ‘Aam Admi Party’? 😉
A senior citizen private contractor was repeatedly slapped by a MNS corporator ,Nitin Nikam, publicly.He was hit for delays in water pipeline repair and the party argued that the private contractors do no do their work properly despite taking public money.Mr Nikam argued that the act of slapping was the ‘MNS way’ to explain things when people do not listen to talks! The party has not seeked any apology for the public display of ‘MNS way’by its corporator. No one opposed the act be other political parties or the police or govt !
Well,who dares against MNS or Shiv Sena in Mumbai ? Hope not the MNS style of explaining get more popular than Gangnam Style of dancing. 🙂
