Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan declared ‘bad character’



Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan had been declared a “history-sheeter” and a “bad character” of the Jamia Nagar area by the Delhi Police due to the large number of crimes he was accused of, official sources said on Friday.

According to an official document, a copy of which is with IANS, MLA Khan had been previously involved in 18 cases and was declared a “bad character” of the Jamia Nagar area on March 30.

As per the document, Amanatullah Khan attended the Jamia Millia Islamia but did not complete his degree, and is, thus, only educated till Class 12d.

“He started his business at Jamia Nagar and soon formed a group consisting of persons from his village and his neighbouring villages and indulged in land grabbing and illegal constructions…. Most of the cases registered against him are related to intimidation, threatening, hurt, riots, causing hindrance to duties of public servants and causing enmities between two groups and communities,” the document prepared by the Jamia Nagar police station read.

Based on these involvements, Khan’s name was proposed as a “bad character” of the area so that his activities could be kept under surveillance.

The information shared by the source came just a day after the AAP leader was arrested for allegedly rioting and obstructing South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) officials from carrying out the proposed anti-encroachment drive at the Madanpur Khadar area.

According to DCP, Southeast Esha Pandey, an FIR was registered on Thursday against the AAP MLA and five of his supporters under various sections of the IPC, including obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions, assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty, rioting, armed with deadly weapon, being member of an unlawful assembly, and wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot.

Violence erupted during the drive when some people, infuriated over the process, pelted stones at the security personnel and police then undertook a baton charge to disperse the mob.

Earlier also when the MC carried out the demolition drive in Shaheen Bagh area on May 9, Monday, Amanatullah Khan and his supporters were booked for obstructing public servants in discharging their duties.

At that time as well, an FIR was registered against him on the complaint of the SDMC under various sections of the IPC including obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions, and assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty.


Smriti Irani slams Gandhis, says chants of ‘Shri Ram’ must reach them




Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani on Friday slammed the Gandhi family while speaking at the BJP’s ‘Tridev Sammelan’ held in the city of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh.

She said the chants of ‘Shri Ram’ must reverberate with the Gandhi family in Delhi, Amethi and Kerala from the hill state.

This statement by Irani comes ahead of the BJP’s aim of ‘Mission repeat’ in the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly election and galvanise the party workers.

Smriti Irani said the ‘Tridevs’ (Booth Adhyaksh, Booth Palak and Booth Agent) are the biggest strength of the party organisation, adding that it is their hard work which has helped the BJP emerge as the party with the largest party workers in the country and the world.

The Union Minister raised the slogan of ‘Shri Ram’ while praising the ‘Tridevs’, saying that today there are BJP governments in most of the states of the country only due to their contribution.

Smriti Irani said the BJP government will come back to power in Himachal Pradesh and the party workers at the ground level have contributed towards strengthening the party organisation.

Attacking the Nehru-Gandhi family, she added that the former delayed the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya for decades while being in power.

“It is the same Gandhi family which is working to disturb the peace in the country.”

Smriti Irani objected to Rahul Gandhi’s recent statement about other democracies, saying that the Gandhi family never had faith in India’s democracy and have always believed in dividing the country.

Referring to the military credentials of Himachal Pradesh, Irani said that Himachal Pradesh is the ‘City of Gods’ where the Indian Army received the Param Vir Chakra for the first time in the country.

The valiant people of Himachal Pradesh will show the door to those parties which disrespect the armed forces.

Parties such as the Congress which are involved in anti-national activities will be rejected by the people of Himachal Pradesh.

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, State BJP President Suresh Kashyap, BJP MLAs and a large number of party workers attended the Tridev Sammelan.
