Trust your sevak, interest of northeast will be protected -Narendra Modi




Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to the people of the northeast, particularly of Assam to maintain peace and assured them that their interests will be protected at all costs.

“From the place of Baba Bholenath, I assure that there will be no impact on culture, tradition, language of northeast people including Assam. Their interest will be safeguarded. I assure them to have faith in Modi govt which is committed for the development of the northeast. In the last five years, I visited northeast more than all the previous Prime Ministers,” said Modi in a rally at Dhanbad on Thursday.

He said, “Confusion is being created over CAB by the Congress and its allies. I appeal the people of northeast not to get influenced by these people. The clause 6 of Assam will be safeguarded. We feel proud of the culture of Assam.”

He came down heavily on the Congress for taking a U-turn on CAB.

“The Congress have lost faith in tribal, dalits and other sections of the people. They are now depending on the votes of only one community and lying on the CAB. There will be no impact on the citizens of the country”.

“Congress leaders had promised citizenship to displaced people of Pakistan and Bangladesh. India was divided in 1947 and in 1971 Bangladesh was created. The maximum affected were minority people living in those countries. The minorities in Pakistan, Afganistan and Bangldesh were Hindu, Sikhs, Parsis, Jain, Christians who were living there for generations. The division was imposed on them. Inhuman behaviour was meted out on minorities and women were subjected to different forms of exploitations. The temples, Churches, Gurudawars were vandalised. They (displaced minorities) were living in different parts of the country for decades. They were made hollow promises by the Congress. It was the BJP which fulfilled the promise,” said Modi.

He said: “In last six months we have fulfilled our promises made in our manifesto. People had started losing faith in poll manifesto because parties including Congress used to forget the promises made to the people. It is the BJP which fulfilled the promises.”

“We scrapped Article 370 and implemented Indian laws and Constitution in Jammu and Kashmir. We facilitated for solution of Ram Janmabhoomi dispute which was pending for decades. We framed laws for Triple Talaq, which helps not only Muslim women but also the men. If a woman was victim of triple talaq, her brother and fathere used to be affected.”

He appealed to people to vote for the BJP in Jharkhand assembly elections.

Babri demolition case: Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaat to protest against verdict



The Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaat (TNTJ) will protest across the state against the Lucknow CBI Special Court’s judgment acquitting the 32 accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case for want of evidence, said an official.

“We will hold protest on Thursday and Friday. On Thursday the protest will be in Chennai where large number of people from our community will participate. On Friday the protests will be held in other parts of the state,” B. Abdul Rahman, Vice President told IANS.

He said that in Chennai the protest will be near the Collector’s office in Mannady.

On Wednesday a CBI court in Lucknow acquitted 32 persons in the Babri Masjid demolition case on that grounds that the demolition was spontaneous and not due to any conspiracy.

Rahman said that the judgement has shattered confidence in the courts.

Despite the self-confessions of perpetrators, numerous videos of the Babri Masjid demolition, the acquittal of all the culprits have shattered the confidence of the Indian courts, said TNTJ in a statement.

It is a great injustice for the courts to claim that there is insufficient evidence to convict the accused on Babri Masjid demolition, the organisation added.

Muslims living in India have always relied on the Constitution of India, democracy and the courts. But the verdicts in the courts are undermining the confidence over the courts for not only Muslims but the entire Indian population.

Also, the verdict in the Babri Masjid demolition case has shattered Indian democracy and constitutional law, the organisation added.

Yogi Adityanath wraps up review of works in 75 UP districts




Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has completed a review of the developmental projects in all 75 districts of the state.

The meetings, which had been happening for the past 27 days wrapped up on Wednesday night with the review of the Jhansi division. The Chief Minister carried out a review of the work done in all the divisions through virtual meetings during the pandemic.

Yogi Adityanath, while addressing the meetings, said that Uttar Pradesh was ready to write a new chapter in growth, progress, development and prosperity.

He said that the Purvanchal Expressway, Bundelkhand Expressway and the Defence Corridor would bring new opportunities for the jobless and the entrepreneurs.

He said that there are 22 mega-projects with a cost of over Rs 50 crore each in the divisions.

Yogi Adityanath directed officials to make ventilators in Jalaun district functional and train the technicians in this regard. He also asked to appoint two anesthetists in the district.

He said the mining work, commencing on October 1, requires some transparency in terms of decision making and functioning.

The Chief Minister underlined the need for following all Covid protocols as the protection against the Covid infection was important.

“Let us all understand it well that protection is the only option before us till some medicine or vaccine comes in the market. Effective surveillance system and contact tracing can save many lives from Covid besides spreading mass awareness at every level,” he stated.

Putting emphasis on maintaining the timeline of all the projects, he pointed out that the utilization certificate should be furnished only after physical verification of the project. He said that the focus should be on timely completion of the projects but at the same time there should not be any compromise with the quality of work.

The Chief Minister asserted that the money meant for development should not be used elsewhere otherwise it will invite stringent action from the government.

“Generate jobs under MGNREGS work and accommodate as many migrant labourers as possible,” he said.

The Chief Minister further directed conservation of water in every possible way and said that there is an urgent need to revive and conserve natural water bodies, ponds and wells.

He said that the repair of roads should be undertaken at a war-footing after the rains are over.

He also directed officials to facilitate loaning to the entrepreneurs to set up MSME units and asked the districts to showcase, develop and market the products under ‘One District One Product’ (ODOP) in an organized manner.

BSP Chief Mayawati seeks President’s rule in Uttar Pradesh




Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati on Thursday demanded imposition of President’s rule in the state, following the rape and murder of another Dalit woman in Balrampur district.

Mayawati said that the Hathras incident had led to outrage across the nation and she thought that the Yogi Adityanath government would take steps to curb such incidents from taking place.

“I feel that anti-social elements have taken over the state completely and there is no rule of law left in Uttar Pradesh. The Balrampur incident is a replay of what happened in Hathras. In such circumstances I request that President’s rule should be imposed in the state,” she said.

The BSP leader further said that as Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was unable to ensure law and order in Uttar Pradesh, it would be better if he returned to his ‘Gorakhnath Math’.

“The BJP should entrust the government to some another leader who can manage things better,” she added.
