A woman named Om Shanti Sharma has been sitting on an indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar since July 9, and has taken a maun-vrata(vow of silence). The placard placed behind her reads, ‘Rahul Gandhi se apni beti ke rishtey ki maang'( I demand my daughter getting married to Rahul Gandhi). Reports say that she has offered a dowry amount of Rs 15 crore to Rahul.
The judges said that the CBI was not justified in filing the case against Mayawati and pointed the case as illegal and without jurisdiction. In 2002, the Supreme Court had ordered the CBI to investigate the Taj Corridor case where she was accused of swindling money meant for development of Taj and surrounding areas and later cancelled on environmental grounds. While the CBI filed a case accusing her of misusing her post as CM for monetary gain, the Income Tax department ruled in her favour and the Delhi High Court too! Mayawati’s declared assets in 2003 Rs 1 crore which increased to 50 crores in 2007 and 200 crores in 2012. Mayawati expressed the money has been donated to her by workers of her party!
Daughter of a poor farmer becomes a Chief Minister, is understandable but becomes owner of Crores of Rupees and still claims she is not corrupt, is not understandable! How much does a Chief Minister get as a monthly remuneration ?
🙂 Just no more words !
Mera Bharat Mahan (My India is Great!)
Team Anna’s starting date of fast,25th July, coincides with Parliament’s Monsoon Session hence Delhi Police has denied permission to the team to hold their indefinite fast for Lokpal Bill and Corruption!
Mukhtar Ansari, an Independent MLA supported by the ruling Samajwadi Party, and Vijay Mishra of the SP are only released to attend Assembly proceedings and that’s the only outing allowed to them. Both are at present residents of government hospitals and are brought to the Assembly in ambulances.While Ansari is booked for murder, Mishra for attacking a BSP leader and while the country thinks they are serving their punishments, in reality,they got the liberty to attend yesterday’s grand lunch with Pranab Mukherjee.
Well, astonishingly in our country, people do not mind voting for criminals as well.
Abu Jundal with many alias names was arrested last week,after being deported from Saudi Arabia at the Delhi Airport.Surely this is a major breakthrough for India as he is one of those operators who is said, was sitting at some Karachi Headquarters of ISI, guiding terrorists who had intruded Mumbai in Nov 2008! He is also said to have coached Pakistan based terrorists, Hindi, to accomplish the terror mission! Jundal who originally belongs to India has been making Headlines almost every second hour since he is caught – What kind of guy he was as a kid ?, His mother says he is innocent !,He has Pakistani Passport as well ! ,where is the LeT,the Terror outfit, plans to bomb next ! Pakistan’s denial of being involved in terror attack after Abu Jundal confessed help from ISI and the list just continues ….
How do these ‘Breaking News’ help now ? He has already done what he had to, in 2008 and no matter how many proofs India, Pakistan will never accept involvement in Mumbai Terror Attacks! By terming these things Breaking News , how long will Media and News Channels waste our time ? How does it matter, what kind of child a terrorist was ? Has he done something heroic ? What is the point of highlighting his family’s point of view who considered him dead while he went missing since 6 years ? How can the family say he is innocent when for 6 years the family did not know about his whereabouts? if these terrorists continue being Breaking News, no big deal, if kids at our homes may start considering terrorists , some super heroes who are so popular !:)
Since Jayalalithaa’s AIADMK party took over the government of Tamil Nadu from DMK, many senior DMK leaders and hundreds of party cadre have been put behind bars on land grab charges which DMK claims, is made-up while the ruling party says is based on genuine complaints. To protest against this , DMK supremo Karunanidhi decided to held “Fill the Jails” agitation,today.About 50,000 DMK cadres and leaders are participating in the protest and this includes Karunanidhi’s daughter,Kanimozhi and son,Stalin.Kanimozhi is out from jail, on bail, in the 2G Scam case and has got permission from court to participate in the protest !
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav has proposed that MLAs who do not have a car of their own should be allowed to buy a car within Rs 20 lakhs, using state funds, for survey work in their constituencies.After the 5 year term the car could be returned to the government or be bought by the MLA at a depreciated value.Most of the MLAs were happy the way they are ! Some expressed ideas of spending the money on development work of their constituencies rather than buying cars out of taxpayer’s money.
Well, it sounds astonishing that our politicians are bothered about the public and not themselves and that too in a state like Uttar Pradesh where the last Chief Minister,Mayawati, had spent lakhs and crores of state-fund to build her own and party symbol’s(elephant) monuments ,all over the state capital! 🙂
