Me Too: Charges Against MJ Akbar To Be examined Says Amit Shah

Amit Shah said the party will have to check the veracity of the post and the person who posted it. “You can also post something using my name. We will definitely look into the issue.

After days of silence, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah has finally spoken on the allegations of sexual harassment against Union minister MJ Akbar.

Speaking to a local channel Shah reportedly said the party will have to verify the authenticity of the allegations against Akbar. “Dekhna padega ki yeh sach hai ya galat (We will have to see if the allegations are true or false),” Shah said.

Under the ongoing #MeToo movement, many women journalists have leveled sexual harassment against Akbar. Ever since these charges became public, the demand for Akbar’s resignation has grown.

Amit Shah also said, “We have to check the veracity of the post and the person who posted it. You can also post something using my name. We will definitely look into the issue.”

Akbar, a former journalist, faces serious allegations of sexual harassment. The allegations have been made by a number of women journalists, who have come forward as part of the #MeToo campaign that has raging on the social media.

The accounts are from a time when Akbar held senior editorial positions in media firms. The women have described how Akbar used to conduct meetings and interviews in hotel rooms and exhibit “predatory” behaviour.

Meanwhile, sources have told that the government will ask Akbar to step down as the Minister of State for External Affairs once he returns from Africa.

“The party president asked us to avoid committing mistake of posting fake pictures, data and messages on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. He said such action endangers our credibility before the people,” said a participant, seeking anonymity.

 

 

 

Shah also attended the SC Morcha and core group meetings of the Delhi BJP. The core group meeting started late in the evening and continued till night.

Party sources said that the “road map” for the 2019 election was discussed in the meeting of the Core group that serves as the key decision making body of the Delhi BJP.

Amit Shah slams Congress leaders during Debut Speech in Upper house

 Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah, who recently entered the Rajya Sabha as a first-time Member of Parliament, on Monday delivered his maiden speech in the upper house.

Speaking in the House with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in attendance, Shah said most of the NDA government’s time in power has got wasted in undoing the wrongs committed by the previous Congress-led UPA government.

“Sarkaar ne jab kaam-kaaj sambhala, tab sarkaar ke paas virasat me kya tha? Jis prakaar ka gaddha tha, wo gaddha bharne mein hi sarkaar ka bahut saara samay gaya hai aur gaddha bharne ke baad in uplabhdhiyon ko ek alag najariye se dekhein (When the government took charge, what did it get in legacy? The kind of ditch it was, most of the government’s time went in filling that ditch. So, government’s achievements should be looked at in that context),” Shah said in Rajya Sabha.

He also sought to reject the claim that the Modi government was arrogant. “For the first time after Independence, a non-Congress party was given mandate by the public and it was BJP government led by PM Modi. In spite of getting the absolute majority, we formed the government with NDA members,” the BJP president said.

Hitting out at Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram’s Pakoda jibe, Shah said: “Abhi mai Chidambaram sahab ka tweet padh raha tha ki ‘mudra bank ke saath kisi ne pakode ka thela laga diya, isko rozgari kehte hain?’ Haan main maanta hu ki bheekh maangne se to accha hai ki koi mazdoori kar raha hai. Uski dusri pidhi aage aayegi to udyogpati banegi (I was reading Chidambaram’s tweet in which he said ‘somebody put up a pakoda stall near Mudra bank, is this called employment?’ I agree it is better to run a stall than beg on the streets. Their coming generation will become industrialist).”

Lauding PM Modi’s achievements, Shah said, “Chai waale ka beta aaj Pradhan Mantri bankar is sadan me baitha hai (A tea-seller’s son is sitting in Parliament as prime minister).”

The BJP president further described the Modi government’s move to provide free health insurance to around 50 crore people as unprecedented and courageous.

“Nowhere in the world has any government shown the courage to provide Rs 5 lakh health insurance to 50 crore people free of cost. That is why, ‘Ayushman Bharat’ will be known by the name of ‘Namo healthcare’,” Shah said.

On Goods and Services Tax (GST), he refuted claims that the BJP had opposed it. “BJP never opposed GST, it had only opposed its implementation. UPA had conceptualised GST. States suffered due to lowering of cess. UPA was supposed to compensate but it was NDA which compensated Rs 37,000 crores,” Shah stated.

He also hit out at Rahul Gandhi for calling GST, Gabbar Singh Tax. “The decision to introduce GST was unanimous. And what was it called? Gabbar Singh Tax! Who is Gabbar Singh? He was a dacoit in ‘Sholay’ film. Does a tax brought in legally called dacoity?” he asked.

Counting surgical strikes in PoK as a “historic moment”, the BJP president said “the world started seeing India differently afterwards. They realised that after America and Israel, India is the only country which can protect its soldiers and Army.”

In bitter war of words, CPI(M) escalates online attack on Yogi Adityanath, BJP

Amid an ugly war of words between CPI(M) and BJP-RSS in the political space of Kerala, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) launched a fresh attack on Yogi Adityanath and BJP, on healthcare in Uttar Pradesh. Continuing its jibe at the right-wing party, CPI(M), over posts in twitter, raked up the issue of the deaths of several children in a government-run hospital in the UP Chief Minister’s parliamentary constituency, Gorakhpur.

Further hitting out at Adityanath over his comment “Kerala should learn how to run hospitals from UP”, CPI(M) posted an image of the UP CM with his quote and shared a news article on how a UP university hospital used industrial gas as anaesthesia. The Times of India article shared by CPI(M), along with Yogi’s quotes, mentioned that joint investigation team of the Centre and the U.P government found that forbidden industrial-grade gas had been used as anaesthesia to patients undergoing surgery in the Banaras Hindu University’s Sir Sundar Lal Hospital.

)

CPI(M) latest barb at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader came following Adityanath’s comments on Wednesday where the UP Cm mentioned that there had been “300 deaths due to dengue in a year” in Kerala. With an aim to pitch Hindutva in Kerala, the UP Chief Minister led the saffron party’s fortnight-long ‘Janaraksha Yatra’, launched by BJP president Amit Shah on Tuesday.

Reportedly, Adityanath, addressing supporters at the rally in Kerala said, “In one year, there have been more than 300 deaths in Kerala due to dengue and several hundred deaths due to chikungunya. This shows the CPM government is not handling its responsibility.”

Yogi Adityanath’s remark came in a response to one of CPI(M)’s tweet, slamming the UP government for the death of over 60 children at the Ram Das Medical College Hospital in Gorakhpur. Hitting out at the UP CM, the CPI(M) tweeted, “Today, we invite UP CM Yogi to visit Kerala hospitals to learn how to run hospitals effectively.”

)

However, claiming that the Gorakhpur hospital tragedy was the first of its kind in Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath said at the Wednesday’s rally, “While Uttar Pradesh effectively checked the menace of dengue and chikungunya, the Left party and its government have failed in providing basic necessities to people in the state.”

Factionalism takes sting off Yogi Adiyanath Government

The murmur of dissent and dissatisfaction among the Yogi Cabinet members are tumbling out in public domain thick and fast over the manner the Chief Minister is taking all decisions himself without consulting any ministers or giving them importance. While the newly elected Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath is going the whole hog to outshine any challenges coming from party disgruntled lot the Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya is feeling rather ignored and out of place in the present scheme of things. Winning state polls as BJP Pradesh President and an OBC face of the party, K P Maurya was a strong contender for the top slot and is feeling neglected and sidelined as the party insiders reveal that he may be sent to Centre to contain factionalism within the party.

Uttar Pradesh politics is rife with the speculation that K P Maurya has opposed to the move of sending him at Centre as he believes if he goes to Delhi he will be rendered irrelevant in the state politics. Secondly, he has consolidated his base as a factional leader who listens and sympathises with the dissenting voices against the Chief Minister’s high handiness. If sources are to be believed indications are that the Deputy CM has created a base of over 200 MLAs who support him for the cause of countering Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s behaviour towards party members.

According to top party sources, dissentient has reached to such level that the party General Secretary Sunil Bansal has brought the issue to BJP President Amit Shah to solve the containment among party brass. As per party strategy, K P Maurya will not vacate his Parliamentary seat Phulpur to be grabbed by BSP Supremo Mayawati, who is eying seat after resigning from Rajya Sabha. Party thinks by calling Maurya to Centre will fix both the vexing issues in one go. The move will quell the dissentient and factionalism in the state BJP and it will stall Mayawati’s chances of contesting from Phulpur if she so desires.

Both Yogi and Maurya are expected to vacate their seats as the Member of Parliament (MP) from Gorakhpur and Phulpur, respectively, to continue their terms in the state. With the conclusion of the Presidential elections and Ram Nath Kovind takes office as the President, the Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah is now focusing more on Uttar Pradesh where Adityanath and Maurya are set to face poll battles once again.

There have been widespread speculations that the BSP supremo might attempt to regain entry in the House by contesting the by-poll with a rare opposition alliance with Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress. However, BJP has refuted any such possibilities and has stated that there are no reasons for the saffron party to be concerned of, as the chances of Mayawati contesting the elections are very less. Senior party leaders claimed that while Mayawati always chooses to contest from a safe seat, she won’t be risking fighting from one of BJP’s stronghold, losing which might take her into political oblivion.

Over possibilities that the BJP might offer a ministerial berth to K P Maurya at the Centre and ask him to retain his seat as the MP from Phulpur, party Chief Amit Shah ruled out any chances of moving Maurya to Delhi. Stating all such claims as media speculations, Shah claimed that the Deputy CM will soon be relieved of his duties as the state President and will be allowed to work free from party responsibilities.

Major reshuffle on cards, JDU to join Narendra Modi Cabinet

As the completion of Monsoon Session of Parliament nearing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is gearing up to undertake massive reshuffle of his Cabinet till date. According to BJP top party sources, the possibility of rewarding Janata Dal (United) with representation in the Union Cabinet is a certainty following Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s dramatic move to leave the ‘mahagathbandhan’ with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD and Congress, to join the BJP. The JD(U) becoming the part of Central Government will usher the regional party joining the NDA bandwagon for once and all. The strong grapevine suggests that Prime Minister Modi may drop some of the non-performers and introduce new faces in the Union Cabinet.

BJP insiders have confirmed that the Prime Minister and party President Amit Shah have had several rounds of discussions over the impending reshuffle of Cabinet, with an eye on the crucial 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Also, there have been rumours doing rounds that Amit Shah may join Modi Cabinet as Defence Minister. However, Shah has rejected the possibilities of resigning from the Party President and joining the government. Shah said he is happy being the party President and busy preparing the next general elections. The speculation of him being joining the government gained currency following his nomination to the Rajya Sabha. Amit Shah has already filed nomination papers for the Upper House elections from Gujarat. Being a five time MLA from his home state Gujarat, Amit Shah will be fighting to become Member of Parliament for the first time in his political career.

Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda may be sent to his home State Himachal Pradesh to take charge of upcoming Assembly elections due in November-December this year. The party has made up its strategy to pitch him as Chief Ministerial candidate of Himachal Pradesh. Likewise, Anurag Thakur, Lok Sabha Member and son of former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal is certain to get a Ministerial berth in the Union Cabinet to sooth the aspirations of Dhumal clan.

Senior party leader from Uttar Pradesh and the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Minister at Centre Kalraj Mishra will be donning State Raj Bhavan as Governor soon as he has crossed the age of 75, the yardstick of working as Minister in Modi government. It is to be recalled that the Modi-Shah duo has decided to drop ministers from Union Cabinet on the ground of 75-year yardstick. Najma Heptullah, the then Minority Affairs Minister had to leave from Union Cabinet and become Governor of Manipur last year on a similar ground of crossing this threshold limit of age. The issue of age-threshold limit came into force in a big way when senior Party leaders like L K Advani, M M Joshi and others were made ‘margdarshak’ of a party.

Recently, there had been a few changes within PM Modi’s Cabinet, following which four major ministries are left without a dedicated minister. Former Union Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar, shifted to his home state Goa as the Chief Minister, after the assembly elections earlier this year. With the resignation of Parrikar from the Central cabinet, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was given the additional responsibility of the Defence Ministry. In the absence of a dedicated minister for the Environment Ministry, Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan is further undertaking additional charges. Also, M Venkaiah Naidu being a strong contender for the Vice-Presidential election will leave two crucial ministries without a dedicated minister. With Venkaiah Naidu’s resignation from the Cabinet Smriti Irani was given additional charge of Information and Broadcast Ministry and Narendra Tomar took additional charge of Urban Development Ministry. Interestingly, both Smriti Irani and Narendra Tomar lost their respective portfolios during the last cabinet reshuffle by PM Modi.

Who Kovind? Could Be Next President of India.

In an unlikely choice of candidate for the top job of the country, the BJP has declared Ram Nath Kovind, Governor of Bihar, as NDA’s official candidate for the post of President. His candidature has been announced by the BJP President Amit Shah on Monday following the Parliamentary Party Meeting in the capital. Confirming about his candidature, Amit Shah revealed that Kovind is the NDA’s consensus candidate in the run up to the election of Indian President. The BJP President also said that he would ask Congress party President Sonia Gandhi to support NDA’s nominee. The Presidential elections scheduled to be held on 17 July this year.

Ram Nath Kovind (born on 1 October 1945, Village Paraunkh, Tehsil Derapur District Kanpur Dehat) is a current Governor of Bihar. Kovind is a politician from the Bharatiya Janata Party-BJP and also considered close to Home Minster Rajnath Singh. He was elected to Rajya Sabha from the state of Uttar Pradesh during the two terms of 1994-2000 and 2000-2006. He is an advocate by profession and practices in Delhi. On June 19, 2017, he is a former President of the BJP Dalit Morcha (1998-2002) and President of the All-India Koli Samaj. He also served as national spokesperson for the party. On 8 August 2015, the President of India appointed him the Governor of Bihar.

Happy Birthday BJP. It turns 37 years old party today!

BJP is one the largest political parties in the world. It was formed by Syama Prasad Mukherjee in 1951. Since then, the party has seen many ups and downs. Earlier the name of the party was Jana Sangh, later on, it merged with other parties to form the Janata Party in 1977.

It was a new era in Indian Politics when Bhartiya Janta Party was born, as in 1980 Janata Party was routed in the elections and this led to the emergence of Bhartiya Janta Party.

There was a time in BJP when there only a few people who were associated to BJP. Now, there are more than 10 crores of people who are associated to BJP.

There were many ups and down for the BJP government, Babri Masjid demolition and the Hindutva moment. The failure of Vajpayee’s moderate strategy led to a shift in the ideology of the party toward a policy of more hardline Hindu nationalism. In 1984, Advani was appointed the president of the party. Under him, it became the political voice of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. In the early 1980s, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) began a campaign for the construction of a temple dedicated to the Hindu deity Rama at the site of the Babri mosque in Ayodha.

Today is the golden era of BJP, as it is a paramount in Indian Politics, having a clear majority in Loksabha elections, with 282 seats out of 543 seats.But there was time back in 1984, BJP only had 2 Loksabha seats. In 37 years, BJP which started from scratch has raised to newer heights. This is not a secret anymore, hand behind the gigantic victory of BJP in Loksabha elections or Legislative assembly elections is PM Narendra Modi and the mastermind Amit Shah.

In Uttar Pradesh, BJP also won the massive seats this shows how strong is the Modi Wave.BJP came to power in UP after 15 years.Popular face of Hindutva Yogi Adityanath who has been elected as the CM of Uttar Pradesh will take BJP to newer heights and will help BJP to work on its ideology.

On the occasion of BJP foundation day, PM Narendra Modi tweeted

 

BJP which is getting a huge support from the people of India and the Modi wave which is getting stronger day by day that day, then there will a time in future when India will witness Congress Mukht Bhara
