The political party formed after exploiting the advantage gained from the nationwide movement against the then corruption of Congress party at the centre led by the nationally known crusader Anna Hazaare who was instrumental in the political death of certain ministers in Maharashtra government for their involvement in acute corruption, known as AAM ADMI PARTY with Kejrival on the driver’s seat is again in for more trouble rather a small division as one of its remaining pillars and a renowned speaker, poet and the man responsible for Kejrival’s party’s victory in the Delhi election Kumar Vishwas ready to wage an open war against the Delhi CM indirectly but sounding direct, accusing him of not giving him Rajya Sabha seat from Delhi and instead obliging one Delhi businessman and a chartered accountant namely Sushil Gupta and ND Gupta.

The third being RS nominee being Sanjay Singh the AAP’s leader and Kejrival’s close confident. Both the Gupta’s are from Vaishya business community to which chief minister Arvind Kejrival also belongs.

The list for the three Delhi Rajya Sabha seats have been declared today as AAP having 66 lawmakets has the full say for all the three RS seats. Last time the Congress had all the three seats as it was in majority during the tenure of chief minister Shiela Dikshit.
Badly annoyed and furious Kumar Vishwas expressed his gratitude towards Arvind Kejrival for making him a martyr than to finish him for ever politically. He said that anyone who dares to question the Delhi CM is finished in the party or outside party by expelling him or her. What Kumar Vishwas meant by his statement is that there is complete lack of inner party democracy in AAP and whosoever tends to question the leadership or asks for rightful share in the party is either expelled or finished to the full but in Kumar’s case he has been martyred not killed politically says the latter. I was punished for speaking the truth. I accept my martydom, this is what the poet turned politician furiously responded anxious reporters.

It may be recalled that after the AAP government and its CM Arvind Kejrival assumed office the AAP’s most significant leaders and those instrumental of bringing the party to power were expelled namely senior advocate and think tank of AAP Prashant Bhushan and the renowned psephologist , a perfect organiser and the party’s most acceptable think tank and national spokesperson Dr. Yogendra Yadav and several too signed in protest as well. They thereafter formed a separate political outfit called Swarajya Party which also contested the Delhi municipal elections but couln’t make a mark. Prashant Bhushan, his father former Union Law minister in Janata Party government and a renowned legal luminiary Bharat Bhuhan were highly contributive in the victory of AAP at the hustings but were shown the door as they questioned Kejrival on selection of certain party candidates with dubious and corrupt backgrounds and also asked for transparancy in party funding. Kejrival could’nt bear this and expelled these leaders forthwith. Political analysts say the Kejrival did this because he acknowledged more than absolute majority fearing no risk of his governments’ instability.

Today he is having 66 lamakers and no political threat. He is the undisputed leader of his party. If sources are to be believed the Delhi CM is allegedly systematically axing his intelligent and eloquent over ambitious leaders phase wise so that he finally becomes invincible in AAP with nobody daring to question his leadership. What do you say friends?

The flagrant incident of assault of a young women journalist including an other woman at the ITO metro station last Tuesday, being third in a row in a week’s time has shaken the confidence of the women metro commuters of Delhi.

Such an outrageous incident of a young journalist’s assault at a metro station just less than fifty metres away from the police headquarter definitely puts a strong question mark on the claims of women’s security in the capital and its metro stations.

If a woman in the heart of the city surrounded by police headquarter and newspapers’ offices of repute is not safe at 9.30 PM and that too a journalist, who showed exemplary courage to bravely counter the assault attempts and lodge an FIR despite being alone, having to wait for one hour just imagine what would be the fate of those shy and insecure women who daily face such assaults and stalkers but fail to report matters of constant harrasments due to the apprehension of repraisals of these goondaas or the tardy action taken procedures of the authorities concerned.

Hats off to this courageous journalist who not only fought with the criminal valiantly but also acrimoniouly chased him making him badly frieghtened who was later on caught after two days of police’s serious investigation, procuring the CCTV footage and enquiring from hundreds of nearby vendors and strangers.

The culprit who was a local tea seller is now in 14 day police custody under the relevant sections of the law. The Delhi Commision of Women has taken a suo.motto cognisance of this serious matter and have issued notices to the DMRC to submit it the detailed report about such shameless incidents of women assaults and harrasment till date.

Sounds shocking and anguishing that a station like ITO dosen’t have police petrol in the nearby vicinity as well a inside the station to check the antecedents of such anti social elements frequenting in and out at times in inebriated condition with a bad intent to molest women and young girls.

Delhi metro despite having CCTV cameras all over fails to monitor such serious act of a women’s molestation and no policemen or the para military trooper comes to her rescue, sounds unusual and definitely reflects on the poor vigilantism inside the stations where women seem to be vulnerable.

Metro ferries 25 to 30 lakh passengers daily to different parts of the capital and the NCR and is considered to be the lifeline of the Delhites but unfortunately over the past two years, while its fares have been increased manifold, putting extra burden on the squeezed pockets of its commuters it has been felt and visualized that incidents of pick pockets, mollestations, eve teasing are on the rise.

May be the reporting pattern by women complainants is not very encouraging due to different compelling reasons and circumstances. There have been incidents when male commuters enter from the women compartment ruthlessly and stand in close proximity which is higly objectionable and uncalled for.

Even in general compartment some youngsters try to deliberately rub shoulders with girls and women and on objecting either say sorry pretending to be gentlemen or retaliate. This is because there is dearth of police petrolling inside trains and in the station premises.

In order to check and counter such dubious elements the security apparatus including those manning the CCTV part should be made more alert, attentive and answerable and petrolling increased manifold.

If the metro authorities have the guts to increase the fares of its commuters manifold, twice in just past six months, despite repeated opposition and criticism by the general public and the Delhi government it should also exhibit and ensure its performance on security front and well as looking after the convenience of its valued commuters.

Today, you go in any metro station, except few, in majority of the stations one or two token counters function and the queue of the token seekers in long and unending but the staff seems to be least bothered for the convenience of its valued commuters.

Majority of the pedestrian escalaters are out of order. This is so because the Delhi metro has never valued its commuters’ inconvenience as it perhaps thinks that it’s the cimpulsion of the Delhites to travel by it, despite all odds.

The CMD of the DMRC is urged upon to take serious note of all these lapses on the part of the metro and ensure the fullest safety and security of its commuters, particularly the most vulnerable women community using its services. WHAT DO YOU SAY FRIENDS?

There is lot of hue and cry over the recent decision of the National Green Tribunal putting curb on the infinite number of visitors going for Goddess Vaishno Devi Darshan by issuing directives to curb the number of regular visitors to fifty thousand at a time instead of myriad number of devotees thronging at the historical spiritual Shrine considered extremely pious and miraculous by billions of HINDUS globally.

Even the emperor of India Jalalludin Akbar three centuries ago visited Godess Vaishnodevi Dham bare footed and presented a magnificient silver CHATRA in reverence to the Godess after he heard tales of the miracles of Godess Durga stationed here. In its order the NGT has issued number of directives in order to improve and maintain the deteriorating environment in and around the Vaishno Devi Shrine vicinity and reducing the inconvenience of the devotees, the tribunal has asked the Vaishno Devi Shrine Board to apply brakes on the unaccounted number of devotees visiting here and confine it to 50000 numbers on Daily basis.

Orders have also been issued for maintaining cleanliness in the vicinity and the fine of Rs. 2000 fixed on anyone spittng or throwing rubbish in the open in KATRA township and else where , from where the YATRA from VAISHNO DEVI DHAM starts. The NGT has also issued orders for forthright ban on pony ferrying the devotees and instead has ordered for ferrying them in the battery operated vehicles till the shrine. It has in addition banned the future constructions in and around the Shrine areas till Katra.These orders are being implemented from today itself.

However there is lot of resentment among the devotees of Mata Vaishno Devi who’ve opposed this move of NGT, not entirely but a number confining order that confines the daily limit to only 50 thousand devotees asking the government in protest as to where would the remaining thousands of devotees go in view of the arbitrary ban. It may be recalled that bllions of people visit Vaishno Devi Shrine everyday and about 77 lakh devotees visited for Goddesse’s blessings in the year 2017.
