“The ANSHAN Man Wins Another Battle”

In the battle between the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, the Supreme Court on Wednesday gave more power to the elected government in Delhi and limited the role of the L-G. “The Lieutenant Governor can’t act in a mechanical manner and refer all decisions of the council of ministers to President.

The L-G & role can’t be obstructionist, he must work together with the council of ministers and respect their decisions,” Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said while reading out the verdict of the five-judge Constitutional bench.

In addition to the CJI, the bench comprised Justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan later Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said that the Supreme Court has given us clarity on the tussle between the AAP government and L-G Anil Baijal. “It does not matter who controls what…the L-G and the CM have to work together.

The Congress was in power for 15 years, we never quarrelled with the L-g like this,” she said. This has clearly given AAP the upper hand, all eyes and ears now focus at Arvind Kejriwal as to observe his next move.

Congress’ refusal to support AAP in tussle with L-G effectively makes it BJP’s B-team in Delhi

Has congress played the wrong card here?!!!!

Where exactly does the Congress stand in Delhi? Is it the so-called fulcrum of the incipient anti-BJP alliance that’s going to take on Narendra Modi in the next election? Or, is it the B-team of the BJP, an opportunistic party plying its politics on the old principle of an enemy’s enemy being a friend?
The current stance of the Congress on the ongoing tussle between the AAP government and the Centre underlines its philosophy of supporting the BJP when it suits its objectives—either by echoing its voice or through silence—even if it means jettisoning the Opposition for its own political gains.


The Congress is trying to forge an alliance with regional parties by calling the BJP a “threat to democratic institutions.” It has given a call for unity claiming the BJP has no respect for democratically elected rivals and is out to destroy the country’s federal structure. If the Congress really believed its rhetoric, Delhi would have been an ideal case for standing up for the AAP, democracy and federalism. But, the Congress—adept at opportunism, U-turns and compromises that suit its politics—has preferred to either castigate the Delhi chief minister or remain silent.

Its reaction has been limited to calling Kejriwal’s dharna a “drama” to distract from the water crisis in Delhi. However, it has not said a word about the validity of Kejriwal’s demands, the allegations of strike and non-cooperation by bureaucrats. Its leaders have not said a single word about the legality of the decision of the IAS officers to not attend meetings of the Delhi government, thus bringing it to a standstill. In short, it has not taken an ideological stand based on the merits of the case, thus supporting a status quo that helps the BJP.
But, if other regional parties are watching closely, they should notice two things about the Congress. One, it will swing from one ideological position to another, depending on what serves its interests more. Two, it will try its best to destroy a regional party that could become a future challenge, even if it implies singing the BJP’s tune.

AAP registers crucial by-poll win at Bawana: BJP settles for second place

In high octane by-elections in four constituencies mix results have been witnessed by the netizen of India. Incumbent Goa chief minister and BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) leader Manohar Parrikar has won the Panaji by-poll for the record sixth time, defeating Congress’ Girish Chodankar by 4803 votes. The party has also tasted victory at Valpoi constituency of the state.

However, BJP failed to break into AAP’s Citadel Delhi as the latter registered an overwhelming win at Bawana. Meanwhile, at Nandyal constituency of Andhra Pradesh ruling TDP (Telugu Desam Party) emerged as the champion with massive 18172 votes lead. The victory of BJP in Goa and AAP’s in Delhi meant Congress’s sorry state continues.
Among these four constituencies where by-poll held Bawana was at the heart of the debate. Arvind Kejriwal led AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) registered an overwhelming victory over their opponent BJP.

After registering this clinching victory AAP wrote on their official Twitter account, “This is the Impact of Honest Governance under the leadership of.” Indeed this victory reflected citizen of Delhi’s trust on AAP and once again they declared that BJP has no place in the union territory.

This is a fact that BJP even after making a plethora of allegations against Kejriwal’s failed to make any impact in Delhi.

The national party, who rules 17 Indian states, once again failed to prove their credentials against Arvin Kejriwal, though they slapped allegations against their AAP CM time and again.

It is believed that recent incidents like infants’ death in Gorakhpur, home town of Chief Minister of BJP rule state of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath. In the meantime, rampage in Haryana after special CBI court convicted Dera chief Ram Rahim Singh in a 15 years old rape case also burnt the face of BJP.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court also reprimanded BJP led Haryana Government for not enforcing enough arrangement to stop devotees of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh set vehicles on fire, ransacking government properties and attacking media personnel.

In the light of these controversies in two BJP ruled states an opinion was being built against BJP among the people of the capital which resulted in their defeat at Bawana.

When BJP clean swept their two seats in their citadel, Goa, under the leadership of former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, they have to maintain silence in the national capital, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other top leaders of their party have to see Kejriwal swelling his chest earning a crucial victory.

With this victory at Bawana AAP now have 29 seats in Delhi Assembly. In 2013, AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal took worth as a Chief Minister; taking Congress’s support as they didn’t have enough seats to form the government. With BJP won 31 seats and Congress eight, AAP took Congress’s support to defy BJP from forming a government in Delhi.

Kejriwal’s wise decision paid off as the AAP-Congress partnership successfully nullified BJP from capturing Delhi.

Kapil Mishra compares himself to Abhimanyu, in the latest ‘AAP-Gatha’.

We all know that this will happen eventually, right? While we have seen the power struggle in Baahubali movie recently, the real-life power struggle is happening in Aam Aadmi Party.

Sacked AAP minister Kapil Mishra, who has leveled serious corruption charges against AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday, has now challenged Kejriwal to contest election against him.

“Be it my constituency Karawal Nagar or even from New Delhi seat, I challenge you to contest an election against me, I am ready to resign, what about you? If you believe that people are with you than contest an election from your New Delhi seat,” Mishra said while reading out a letter to his ‘Guru’.

The drama didn’t end here Kapil Mishra also compares himself as Abhimanyu, the famous mythological character from Hindu-epic saga Mahabharat, In the thirteenth day of the battle of Dharma, Abhimanyu was obliged to break through the cakravyuha, the wheel formation of the Kaurava army. Though he fought valiantly, he was surrounded by a multitude of Kaurava warriors including Drona, Karna, Duryodhana and Dushasana. He was killed in this battle as he was ignorant of the technique of extricating himself out of that cakravyuha. However, before laying down his life, he fought bravely against the greatest of the Kaurava warriors and displayed remarkable heroism.

Mishra says sorry to Kejriwal and also seeks his blessings for his fighting against corruption.

Whereas Duryodhana sorry, AAP chief Kejriwal has promised that he will expose the big conspiracy against his party and electronic voting machine tampering scandal today at 2 pm.

Then the Dushashan oops no no sorry Manish Sisodia has also lashed out at Mr Mishra for naming Mr Kejriwal’s brother-in-law, who died on Monday. “Have some humanity. Not even two hours after the cremation, allegations are being made against the person.”

It will be interesting to see how the story unfolds in upcoming days but we have just one thing to say to sacked minister Kapil Mishra that it was Arjuna who lifted weapons against his own teacher, not Abhimanyu!

BJP Chose Not To Celebrate MCD Victory, Dedicates Win To Martyred CRPF Jawans

Heading towards a clean sweep in all the three civic bodies, the BJP today dedicated its impending win to the slain CRPF personnel in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district and decided to refrain from any celebrations.

As per the trends, the BJP candidates were maintaining leads over their AAP and Congress rivals in most of the 270 wards for which voting was held on Sunday last.

Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said that the every heart is filled with grief over the killing of 25 CRPF men in Sukma and the party will not celebrate the victory.

“But for the Sukma incident, we would be on the streets celebrating this massive victory. We dedicate this win in the feet of Sukma martyrs,” he said. Tiwari also asserted that the results of MCD polls were a referendum on Kejriwal government.

 “We had been saying this earlier also that MCD polls will be a referendum on Kejriwal government. Arvind Kejriwal used to advocate Right to Recall and it seems now that Delhi people have used the right on him,” he said.

Counting of votes began at 8 AM today with BJP gaining leads in all the three municipal corporations- NDMC, SDMC, and EDMC. Voting for 270 of the total 272 municipal wards was held on April 23. Two wards where candidates died, voting was canceled.

BJP sweeps Delhi MCD elections by winning 180 seats

BJP who is continuously winning elections after elections has also added feather on it’s cap by winning MCD elections in Delhi.

For AAP it’s a loss which will mean a political wipe-out Chief Minister Kejriwal’s party, which had swept assembly elections in Delhi two years ago, is already reeling from humiliating losses in the Punjab and Goa assembly elections last month.

Amit Shah has again got a reason to celebrate as BJP won 180 MCD seats out 270.And AAP came to second position by winning just 45 seats  and as expected Congress came last.

After the resounding victory of BJP in the recent Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, BJP’s win in MCD signals the dominance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political clout in terms of public perception.

In South Delhi, where the BJP had fallen short of a majority last time, the party has won 72 seats  of 102 wards. The MCD South too has 104 wards and a BJP party won 70 seats.

And in East Delhi BJP garnered 39 seats out of 63, where AAP got 10 seats and Congress only managed to get 11 seats.

Though, Arvind Kejriwal has said he will launch a “movement” if the BJP wins Delhi today. An hour into counting there was no word from Mr Kejriwal, usually quick to tweet or comment.

Hey you! Romeo’s and Juliet’s, You are Welcomed by Delhi

Uttar Pradesh’s Romeos and Juliets are facing greater scrutiny, critics are accusing the state’s week-old BJP government of ‘moral policing’.

 

The culture of India is one of love and resistance, and star-crossed lovers may find refuge in the nation’s Capital, AAP minister Kapil Mishra said on Saturday.

Speaking of the Mail Today Culture Conclave, he announced that both Romeo and Juliet are welcome in the city and there would be no Mogambo to object, referring to one of Hindi cinema’s best-known villains.

very year when the tourism calendar of the government of India is sent to all countries, there are two places which are always mentioned  Taj Mahal and Khajuraho.

‘One symbolizes divine love and the other material love,’ the city’s tourism and culture minister said. Indian culture is known to embrace dissenting voices, he pointed out.

Delhi is a flexible society. People who invaded and made an attempt to destroy the culture eventually blended in.’ Ghulam Ali is one of those artists whose music is immensely popular among Indian soldiers. His music is without boundaries. Our culture is flexible and convergent.’ The minister compared Indian culture to the voices of Kabir and Maharishi Charvaka known for their anti-norm views.

The Aam Aadmi Party and other critics have accused the ruling BJP at the Centre as well as affiliated groups of trying to muzzle dissent and paint nonconformists as ‘anti-nationals’.


Amid all the criticism for the Centre, the minister did not hold back in appreciating the support he received from the Modi government.

The Uttar Pradesh government’s action has sparked criticism on social media video with commentators terming it an infringement of individual rights with TV footage showing young men being caned by police and others being made to do sit-ups as punishment. The Centre and Delhi government are closely working in tandem to promote tourism and clean the Yamuna.

He surely believes in promoting culture its importance to connect the society with the river. Therefore, he organized a mega Yamuna aarti and are also going to develop river tourism and a `200-crore budget has been earmarked for this year. he has a 22-km stretch of clean water which is still an unexplored point. We have begun water sports. He also will develop a 5-km ecological river front.

The city’s nightlife is an important part of the culture and it’s beyond going to India Gate or nightclubs,  “The nightlife ensures the law and order of a place.”

 

 

 

“Kya BJP EVM ke Sath Mili Hui hai ? Aur haan mujhe pata hai aap mera mazak udaoge” : Arvind Kejriwal

Punjab election results are out, where INC have garnered 77 seats out of 117 seats, where AAP emerged as second largest winning party by winning 20 seats which is much lesser than AAP expected. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is not ready to accept the loss and has alleged tampering of EVM and going his party’s vote share to SAD-BJP alliance which has reduced to 18 seats from 56 in 2012.

Arvind Kejriwal held his press conference on Wednesday morning, where he raised various questions

1) Election Commission’s responsibility to keep people’s faith in EVM. They cannot shirk responsibility.

2) Many have said that there is anger against Akali’s & AAP is sweeping polls, still AAP got 25% votes & SAD got 31%, how is it possible?

3) Through the EVM is it possible that 20-25% vote share meant for AAP was transferred to SAD-BJP alliance

4) We know it is too late to declare Punjab-Goa elections void but this is for future, faith has to be restored in electoral process

5) EC should count slips of VVPAT and match it with figures of EVM results. If it matches, people’s trust will increase

6) SC said EVMs are vulnerable and prone to tampering. SC se bada kya hai? Main janta hu mere bayan ke baad aap mera mazzak udaaoge

7) Developed countries have given up EVMs should we not rethink? Even the BJP, including Advaniji, had said EVMs can be tampered. Arvind Kejriwal now realised that EVMs in Delhi elections were also tampered

8) Sir aapkay Pronnoy Roy nay kaha, Shekhar Gupta ney tweet kia kii Majha mey AAP ka wave hai, saaray keh rahe the

9) People who tamper EVMs, they should answer why they didn’t do so in Delhi and Bihar?

Kejriwal also added several countries in the west have moved away from using the machines and are back to the ballot system. He also said that in order to repose faith in the electoral process, the Election Commission should count the VVPAT slips in states where they were used and match them with the EVM result.

PMO taking an extraordinary interest in Delhi administration since AAP came to power.

The government of Delhi has never been such a talked about the matter before AAP came to power. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been making the news since Anna Andolan and the legacy is maintained till date. The government of AAP is more criticized than celebrated. But something is still out of the notice of everyone.
According to some multiple RTI applications, it has been revealed that PMO of India has been taking an extraordinary interest in Delhi administration since AAP came to governance.

On December 22, the office of the Lieutenant Governor (LG) of Delhi, Najeeb Jung, issued a statement that he had “submitted his resignation to the Government of India”. Political circles in the national capital were taken by surprise and speculation peaked about the possible causes for the unexpected decision, as the statement did not mention any reason for his resignation. Curiously, according to senior officials, Jung had not sent his resignation letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) or the President’s Secretariat, institutions to which the LG reports, but to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). The next morning, around 11 a.m., Jung walked into the PMO and had an hour-long meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Speaking with a few reporters after the meeting, Jung said that twice in the past he had offered to resign, but Modi had asked him to continue as LG.

This was a rare, if not the only, instance since February 2015, when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) came to power in Delhi, of a senior official representing the Centre publicly confirming the Prime Minister’s association with an issue linked to the administration of Delhi. Until now, only Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP have asserted that Modi and his office had been “interfering” in the national capital’s local administration. In response, leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), as well as senior Ministers in the Union government, often ridiculed or dismissed the claims, accusing Kejriwal of trying to drag the Prime Minister into local matters.

However, evidence gathered by Frontline through multiple right to information (RTI) applications to the MHA and other institutions and interviews with government officials reveal that the PMO has not only been monitoring the Government of the National Capital Territory (GNCT) of Delhi but also closely following up on matters linked to it since March 2015, barely a month after the new Delhi government was sworn in.
