He said the government would on August 27 convene a meeting with various companies and organisations such as Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry , Confederation of Indian Industries and the Associated Chambers of Commerce of India to discuss various aspects of the summit.

“After the success of the first job summit, we are planning to organise the second job summit. It will be an open platform where all people can come and apply for jobs,” Rai said at a press conference at the Delhi Secretariat.

The jobs offered included security guards, attendants, helpers, housekeeping, tele-callers, financial planning advisers, drivers, peons and data entry operators.

  • Gopal Rai said that if one wishes to fight the contest Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections on AAP tickets, then he/she should have at least Rs 28 lakh in their accounts
  • Gopal Rai met AAP members on 1 September 2017 to discuss the proposal
  • The candidate should be financially sound to be able to fight elections

New Delhi, September 3, 21017: When Arvind Kejriwal came into politics with Aam Aadmi Party, he promised it to be a clean, corruption free party but all the principles and morals of the party have gone into a drain.

Where have the principles of AAP gone?

The party in recent times has been in the news for all the wrong reasons- allegedly selling party tickets for polls in Punjab, heavy corruption charges, alleged Mohalla Clinic scam. The Party has lost the respect in people’s eyes many times by its shameful activities. AAP is trying hard to win back people’s trust since it lost Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections.

Want an AAP ticket? Got Rs 28 lakh in the account?

The latest reason of AAP’s mockery is the strange clause put forth by Gopal Rai, state in-charge of Gujrat and national leader of AAP. He said that if one wishes to fight the contest Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections on AAP tickets, then he/she should have at least Rs 28 lakh in their accounts. Now, one can’t fight the elections as he is a deserving candidate, have good principles, motives, and ideas or wants to bring a change. But based on the money he/she has in the account, as only those who have Rs 28 lakh and more will be given a chance to contest Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections on AAP tickets.

When AAP fought Delhi Elections, it was with the donation money they got from people and won the election. But, now AAP has changed its ways.

A need to meet the financial criteria

Gopal Rai met AAP members on 1 September 2017 to discuss the proposal.  According to Ahmedabad Mirror report, a leader who attended the meeting said: “A candidate will need not less than Rs28 lakh to prove that he can pull off the campaign financially in the constituency.”  The reason behind this eligibility criterion is that the candidate should be financially sound to be able to fight elections.

Talking about the other 2 eligibility criteria, Harshil Nayak, AAP spokesperson said:

  • The candidate should have to be of clean repute and well-networked in his area
  • The candidate should have at least 2 people to support him in managing a booth

The party will launch its campaign on September 17, 2017. One of the party workers said, “A car and a bike rally will be organized at various places. We hope to get the permission, but if we don’t, the date may change. If not from all seats, AAP will fight the elections from at least a few.”

Indian restaurants at risk if Britain remained in EU: Priti Patel

New Delhi: Priti Patel, UK employment minister, who is in favor of Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU) used country’s love for Indian food, dubbed curry, to make her case stronger.

Indian-origin minister said membership of the EU meant unmanageable levels of European migration which led to Indian chefs being denied visas.

“There are over 12,000 Indian restaurants in the UK. But the future of this sector is under pressure and at risk while we remain in the EU,” Patel said at a gathering in London yesterday to mark Commonwealth Day.

The 43-year-old is one of the leaders of “Vote Leave” campaign. The British public, on 23rd, will vote on Britain’s future in or out of the EU.

“Curry is often voted Britain’s favorite meal. But there are fewer and fewer chefs able to come into the UK to cook curry dishes and train the next generation of chefs. The curry industry supports 70,000 jobs and is worth more than 3 billion pounds to our economy,” she said.

Specifically mentioning the problems of Indian students, sportsmen and women and priests, she stated that they have been blocked from the UK due to rules that “discriminate against our Commonwealth friends”.

Prime Minister David Cameron’s Indian Diaspora Champion, Patel said: “As the Prime Minister’s UK-India Diaspora Champion, I have heard the heartbreaking stories from families up and down the country where relatives from India who they have not seen for years have been unable to come here for a special occasion.

“I have also seen the cases of Kabaddi players struggling to get permission to play in the UK and showcase their sport. Temples and Gurdwaras face uphill battles securing visas for priests.

Students who want to study in the UK? Some of the brightest and best from around the Commonwealth are being put off…How can it be right that our membership of the EU can lead to, sportsmen, chefs, and students facing restrictions, and families being left divided? By voting to leave the EU, we can take back control over our borders and immigration policy.”

She also pointed the removal of barriers to trade with “India, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and all other Commonwealth countries” if it voted to leave the EU.

“The vested interests of other EU countries and the trade barriers, rules, and restrictions the EU imposes stand in the way of new economic opportunities with the Commonwealth. In the referendum on June 23, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to safeguard the future of our country,” she said. (Inputs from zeenews.india.com)
