Starting his second leg of campaigning in Chandni Chowk constituency the four time MP n the Congress candidate Jay Prakash Agrawal acknowledged tremendous support from all sections of the society viz minorities, traders and the people of the lowest ebb raising JP agrawal n Congress party zindabad slogans and heavily garlending him even throwing rose petals from roof tops n balconies of the houses.

Jai Prakash agrawal reciprocated by shaking hands, interacting personally and even embracing voters on the way during his padyatras and door to door campaign.

He addressed several corner meetings as well in between his mass contact programme today. Large number of women, enthusistic youths, students and even senior citizenswelcomed him by garlending and blessing the jubilant Agrawal.

CONGRESS CANDIDATE Agrawal castigated the saffron party BJP for always raising issues that result in dividing the society on religious lines to meet its vested political aims thus least worried to execute the developmental works and issues related to resolving civic problems n employment.

He said that during the BJP central rule in Delhi the traders pf Delhi n Chandni Chowk had been the worst sufferers due to ceiling, demonetisation and GST. Hundreds of thousands of small traders have to close their businesses and workers lost their jobs. The terror of ceiling has led to loss in business prospects.

Mr. Agrawal added that that when Congress was in power at the centre it brought the anti ceiling law in 2007 thus giving relief to lakhs of Delhi’s traders, businessmen and shop keepers. He assured them, if elected he will do his best to revive the same law to give relief to Delhi’s business fraternity.

Agrawal said he was born n brought up in Chandni Chowk n had been working forthe over all welfare and well being since decades. Chandni Chowk n its people are just like his family. He is therefore requesting them to bless him outrightly.

He accused AAP leadership too of being arrogant and opportunist and said that today majority of AAPs leaders have left the party as it not only lacks inner party democracy but has also misled the people of Delhi by always betraying n befooling them.

A party that lacks the inner party democracy has no right to rule Delhi he added. The AAP party’s Chandni Chowk MP n MLAs have literally done nothing during the last four years and so has the BJP government at the centre.

Prime minister Modi has betrayed people on mere rhetorics as nothing fruitful has been acknowleged on the ground in terms of employment, resolving agrarian crisis or on GDP front. People of Delhi n the country are now fed up with this party n want to get rid of it at all costs.

Accusing the BJP n its top leadership as opportunists n hypocritical, Agrawal said that they are the one who forged an alliance with PDP n Mehbooba Mufti in Kashmir to gain power and are now at the time of elections talking of withdrawing article 370 n section 35 A to polarise votes of the majority community.

Today PDP is their arch political foe but more than a year ago it was the saffron party’s most trusted friend. This reflects their political opportunism n unambiguous communal n reactionary stance.

2019 election was fought on personality cult n Narendra Modi’s image was fully utilised by BJP n its allies

2019 election was fought on personality cult n Narendra Modi's image was fully utilised by BJP n its allies
Read Time: 2 minutes

The 2019 election was the election of personality cult not based on programmes and policies to a larger extent. Had it been the case the major issues of unemployment, agrarian crisis, especially the matter of farmers’ suicides, demonetisation, GST n traders grievances at large would not have been diluted nor the caste polarisation possibilities blurred as the various exit polls are predicting that even in Uttar Pradesh the saffron party under Modi effect or charisma is likely to fare extremely well giving merely 25 seats to the BSP, SP n RLD combine.

The entire election was based on personality cult with prime minister Narendra Modi being the choice of the BJP led NDA, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi the projected face of the Congress n Mayawati, Akhilesh and Mamta Bannerjee representing their respective parties’ faces as the future prime minister candidates, though not openly but making it obvious from their respective party angles.

In this whole exercise, while the people of the country Narendra Modi as the most befitting prospective prime minister for the second time in succession, especially on national security matters and post Balakot action, the loose grand alliance and their leaders accusing and castigating each other publicly, could not impress the voters of the country about their future reliability n trust.

There was a clear cut choice amongst the voters of the country between a personality of Narendra Modi who according to them still stands fully successful and accountable to countrymen while on the other hand there are scattered leaders who could not see each other eye to eye despite being a part n parcel of the gathbandhan based on similar ideologies.

While prime minister Narendra Modi was an already declared undisputed prime minster candidate of BJP led NDA, in Mahagathbandhan there was a big question mark about the unanimous prime ministerial candidate.

This was the biggest plus for the BJP n the party considered him as its biggest asset. The country’s electorates have therefore while equating Narendra Modi’s personality with other non BJP opposition leaders found him extremely credible behind whom stood the entire party and its rank n file solidly n credibly while in opposition camp there existed complete confusion and delusion.

The election which started with debates and discussions on programmes and policies and repeated attacks by Congress chief Rahul Gandhi using the Rafale, unemployment n agrarian distress including demonetisation and GST issues, finally came down to personality cult with prime minister Narendra Modi dominating the scene with his impressive political histrionics termed as rhetorics by his arch rivals.

The BJP and even its alliance partners utilized Modi’s image, his fascinating pictures and programmes including capitalising on the post Pulwama situation thus capturing the election at the pan India level, if the current poll exit results are to be relied upon.

If the BJP repeats this time as well and Narendra Modi becomes the prime minister it would primarily ne the Modi personality cult that would be be given credit than anything else as all other issues of regional n national significance stood diluted as was the case in the last assembly elections of 2017 as well when BJP snatched power from Congress in 16 states n in total 19 with its alliance partners.

Harish Rawat says: exit polls are bogus. Congress is winning all the 5 seats in Uttarakhand

Read Time: 1 minute

While the election results will be declared on 23rd May and the recent exit polls have already accorded landslide victory to BJP led NDA keeping the immediate opposition party Congress and its allies at 138 plus, the heartbeat of the contesting candidates, especially those of anti saffron opposition parties have increased manifold.

The satta bazaar is also given maximum marks to the saffron party ensuring the Modi comeback for the second consecutive term.

But despite all this there are leaders like Harish Rawat, the former Uttarakhand chief minister and general secretary of Congress committee who are over confident of Congress’s victory in all the five seats of Uttarakhand. Rawat says : these exit polls are farce n biased.

He castigates the BJP ruling party of allegedly tempering with the EVM machines but says that the people of Uttarakhand had outrightly voted for Congress party and Rahul Gandhi in all the five parliamentary constituencies viz Pauri, Tehri Garhwal, Haridwar, Nainital Udham Singh Nagar and Almora n all the Congress candidates are winning hands down.

In 2014 all the five seats were bagged by BJP MPs and in 2017 assembly elections also the saffron party got a resounding triumph winning 57 seats out of 70, the record outcome by BJP after the formation of the state of Uttarakhand.

Even, the then CM Harish Rawat lost from both the assembly constituencies, he contested from. This time also he fought the parliament election from Nainital parliamentary constituency despite the fact that he earlier represented from Haridwar in Lok Sabha. The various exit polls have given 5- 0 and 4-1 prediction from Uttarakhand and the reason being speculated is Modi undercurrent.

Non BJP opposition leaders apprehensive of malfunctioning of EVMs. Meet the election commissioner.

The leaders of the 22 non BJP opposition parties gathered in New Delhi’s constitution club and also met the chief election commissioner citing their doubts over the EVM machines and alleged manipulation of the election results on 21st May.

They were apprehensive about the malfunctioning of the Electronic Voting Machines and wanted verification of the VVPAT slips of randomly identified polling stations execited prior to starting of the counting of votes and not after the completion of the last round of counting.

According to the opposition leaders especially Ghulam Nabi Azad and Abhishelh Manu Singhvi of Congress, the election commission should accept their demand for for counting of the VVPAT first n incase of detection of malfunctioning in atleast 5 VVPATs then the entire constituency should go for repolling.

The former chief minister of Jammu n Kashmir and the PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti was specifically doubtful about the misuse of the EVM machines by the ruling political dispensation in Kashmir n had complained that despite her number of complaints to the ECI nothing has been done to set right the situation.

She also tweeted in this regard. After the completion of of the polling with results expected on 23rd May there have been lots of hulla baloo in the country through electronic n print media as well in social networking sites that number of EVMs have been found in fields in Bihar as well as in the godowns, cladestinely stored with an ulterior motive.

A picture n vedio of some EVM machines being captured by the local police in Chandausi UP went viral in the facebook.

Even the general secretary of the AICC Priyanka Gandhi had posted a vedio on her FB time line appealing to party workers not to be misled n demoralised by the exit polls n rumours of the BJP but instead tighten their belts to vigilantly guard the strong rooms in the respective constituencies.

The Bhartiya Janata Party and a section of the media has ridiculed the EVM excuse of the non BJP opposition parties and said that since they are losing the elections badly they have now devised a new excuse of faulty, malfunctioning or misuse of EVMs.

Why have they not opposed when the Congress won in three hindi heartland states through EVM’s voting, questioned some BJP leaders ?

It was the most unfortunate day when the nation lost a most adored prime minister, a humble, a great son of the soil, affable, down to earth human being and above all a statesman.

Rajiv Gandhi was adored and lauded above party and ideological affiliations. A yrue leader of the masses he was a strong pro poor leader who had the guts to accept in public that corruption is so overwhelmned in our body polity that merely 20 % of a rupee sanctioned from the public exchequer for the welfare n well being of the poor is actually used, while a major part of 80% is siphoned off by the corrupt system via middlemen.

A gentleman prime minister to the hilt it was him who was gracious enough to help late prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee while he was the opposition leader, enabling his treatment for a severe ailment abroad, not let the leader know about it.

This unambiguously speaks about the large humanitarian heart possessed by Rajivji.

His gentle mesmerising smile, his honest urge to improve the lot of the poorest of the poor and his successful foreign n domestic policies made him the prime minister laudable across board nationally n globally.

His outstanding speech in the United States senate impressed one n all in the international diplomatic scenerio.

Rajiv Gandhi strived hard for a true secular, democratic n progressve India who opened doors for globalisation and bringing Information Technology revolution in India. In nutshell, he was a true architect of modern India.

His most diabolical death at the hands of evil forces led to India ridding itself of an era. His martydom will never go waste.

PM Narendra Modi’s press conference raised eye brows in Congress n non BJP camps

Published

Read Time: 3 minutes

It was for the first time during the last five years of his rule that prime minister Narendra Modi addressed the media, at the party headquarter at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, New Delhi.

Journalists who were quite eager and enthusiastic to field questions to the prime minister having never addressed the press conference during his entire tenure however, have to come back empty handed except constrained to field questions to the party supremo Amit Shah only.

However, prime minister minister Narendra Modi did addressed them after a long speech of Amit Shah but it sounded more like a mere formality.

The prime minister while being highly optimistic of his party gaining more than three hundred seats’ majority as repeatedly said by Amit Shah as well, assured that he will now endeavour hard to fulfill all the election promises giving outstanding governance to the people of the country.

BJP Supremo however answered all the questions himself ranging from Rafale to Pragya Thakur to violence in Bengal to Mamata Bannerjee and even prime minister Modi supported him by saying that it’s the party president who answers to the media than the PM as far as the organisations’s descipline or norm says.
Obviously avoiding the media on several complex questions.

Prime minister Narendra Modi while thanking the media persons for their incessant cooperation during the elections said that there was a time when he used to interact with the journalists at the party headquarters very oftenly.

Lots of new faces have come now while some old friends are still there he added.

He spoke about the Indian election being the largest festival of democracy and appealed to the journalists to accquaint the world about the merits of the Indian democracy.

Praising his government’s model of best governance he said it was because of the success of his BJP led NDA’s outstanding governance that IPL, exams, all Indian festivals whether Ramzan, Ram Navmi or Navratras etc were held in the country simultaneously alongwith the peaceful, fair n easy conduction of general elections whereas during the previous regime’s tenure the IPL tournaments have to be shifted outside.

Prime minister Modi said today is 17th May and for him this day holds immense significance because it was on this day that the Congress govt confronted a huge casualty and the country witnessed the emergence of a new honest government in 2014.

On May 23 we will again have a very strong n cohesive government with more than 300 MPs.

While thanking the people of the country for giving his party an overwhelmning majority in 2014 and also now, Modi said that with the blessings of the countrymen we are again forming the government with a more majority than before.

Prime minister Narendra Modi has joined the press conference at the party headquarter in New Delhi coming directly from Airport where he’d landed from Khoregaon Madhya pradesh after addressing his last rally.

PM Modi said that he started his first address in Meerut from where the country witnessed the first freedom revolution against the British under the leadership of revolutionery freedom fighter late Mangal Pandey and finished his last rally at Khoregaon, Madya Pradesh where a revolutionery soldier of Mangal Pandey’s revolution 1957 Bhima lived n died.

Prior to prime minister Narendra Modi’s brief address to the media BJP president Amit Shah gave a detailed account of the BJP rallies, speeches by the leaders n PM and the entire strategy undertaken by them to fight their rivals in this general election.

He revealed that prime minister Modi travelled more than a lakh kilometres and addressed more than 150 public meetings during his three months extensive campaigning.The crux of the PC was , PM Modi did’nt answered any question n passed the buck on BJP Supremo Amit Shah.

Kudos to Garhwal Heroes for repeatedly proving its mettle. A football team with scarce resources makes it to the top

*GARHWAL ENTER SEMIFINALS*

Garhwal Heroes, the table toppers of their group in the preliminary stage, had their last match of the Super League today on 22 May 2019, Wednesdayat the Ambedkar Stadium, New Delhi. The encounter was against Indian Nationals, owned and operated by the Amity Group of Institutions with abundant funding for the club. It was a very significant match for both the teams as today’s defeat would’ve meant a missed chance to enter the semifinals as well as an ouster from the DSA (Football Delhi) Senior Division Open Club League Championship. This time again, Garhwal fielded a well-rounded team that included the Nigerian striker Charles, who was earlier not played in the preliminary stages, though he showed ultimate class in play and character on the field when he was fielded in the last match that Garhwal won by a mind blowing scoreline of 5-1. The victory was made sweeter by all the fans present in huge numbers who came in response to the social media coverage and updates of the club, encouraging fans to come and support their beloved team in this must-win match with utmost vigour and enthusiasm.
The match started at 4:52 pm against the scheduled time of 4:45 pm. In the beginning, the opponents showed their strength by initiating attacks towards our half from the very start itself. But the formidable lineup of Garhwal did not allow them to sustain their efforts for long, as our half line combined and reached the opponent’s D wherein again Charles, the Nigerian striker, combining with other players, displayed his immaculate maturity, spontaneity, presence of mind and skill to utilize the cheeky set of tricks and tactics that he had just showcased to convert the brilliantly orchestrated move into a goal in the 11th minute. This goal came to the utter surprise of the opponents in the early minutes of the game and in response, the opponent players started attacking Garwal, in a full-blown effort to equalize. However, the Garhwal players, keeping in mind their motto of winning, kept their focus and maintained their natural game and combined well, to find an opportune moment to score another goal and thereby cement their lead as a one-goal margin was not enough. And it was here! In the 45th minute of the first half, as there was an airborne cross from Thapa, Charles positioned himself in such a way as to cut the opponent goalie’s access to the airborne ball, which finally dropped behind the goalie and was neatly pushed into the net by Gaurav Rawat (Daani). This goal put Garhwal in a more stable lead of 2-0. After the halftime, the opponents seemed visibly desperate to reduce the margin but were not focused as per the plan of their coach. Garhwal took full advantage of this situation and it was in the 77th minute in the second half that they meticulously showed their skill in the opponent’s D amidst the melee of players from both sides – the ball was rebound off Aman Thapa’s powerful shot which was then diligently converted into a goal by a power-packed shot by T. Haukib through a narrow angle. The opponent’s goalkeeper was stunned, naturally so, as the Garwal strikers didn’t even allow him a moment of movement between the said rebound and the goal.
After the third goal, Garhwal created many such moments where it could’ve increased the margin, while the opponents also tried their best to salvage themselves, often shooting aimlessly as a result of their desperation. In the end, Garhwal stood victorious with a ravishing score of 3-0 and sailed into the semifinals!

***

The Garhwal Heroes was established in the year 1953 and became first-time champions in 1986 and subsequently in the year 2013, and is on the journey to become the champions this time with the blessings of all you fans and supporters.

Good luck, Garhwal! Bring home the Cup!!

The prime minister of India Narendra Damodar Dass Modi expressed his grief over the assasination of the former prime minister of India by paying one and a half lines’ tribute to late Rajiv Gandhi through a tweet in his twitter handle inviting 44.1 thousand likes, 8, 141 retweets n 2.839 comments till 5.40 PM.

In his twitter handle prime minister Modi tweeted : Tributes to former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi on his death anniversary.

There have been no adjectives in the praise of the former prime minister as usually are witnessed in tributes paid to other higher ups.

It may be recalled that during the recent election campaigning which has now finally ended with election results to be declared on 23rd, prime minister Narendra Modi has in some of his speeches accused former prime minister late Rajiv Gandhi as highly corrupt and also blamed him for misusing the INS aircraft carrier for holidaying with his family.

However in both the cases late Gandhi got a clean chit, one by the apex court regarding his unambiguous acquittal in Bofors and two, denial of the PM’s charge of msusing INS Virat by the then Naval chiefs.

The statements of prime minister had created lot of furore n controversies in the Congress corridors and political circles of India with Priyanka Gandhi retorting that she had not seen such a coward and weak prime minister during her entire life time.

However, her brother and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi had also been using highly derogatory remarks like CHOWKIDAR chor hai for which he had to seek a written apology in the apex court.

Meanwhile Priyanka Gandhi, the only daughter of her late father Rajiv Gandhi has also paid her tributes by visiting Veer Bhumi early morning and posting an emotional poem AGNIPATH in praise of her father written by eminent poet Harivanshrai Bachchan. The caption of her tweet is: YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY HERO. It may be recaled that late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi was assasinated by the LTTE suicide bombers in Sriperumbudur, forty kilometres away from Chennai where he had gone for election campaigning on 21st May, 1991 on the request of former MP n union ministerJayanti Natarajan.
