Patna: Bihar’s ruling JD-U on Friday blamed BJP for tasking AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi with damaging the prospects of grand alliance, namely, JD-U, RJD and Congress in the upcoming assembly elections.
“BJP has given a task to Owaisi to damage or harm the prospects of the grand alliance in the Bihar assembly polls,” JD-U general secretary KC Tyagi said here.
“People of the state are happy with the development work of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar but some people are trying to harm him,” he added.
Tyagi said Owaisi had nothing to do with the interests of Muslims. “Owaisi cannot be a well wisher of Muslims. He is only trying to help and benefit BJP that is why his party has decided to contest polls only in Seemanchal region,” he added.
He said people want to know the motive behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s secret meeting with Owaisi.
Last week Owaisi announced that his party, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), will contest the Bihar assembly elections.
He is likely to put up candidates in Muslim-dominated constituencies in Seemanchal region that comprises four districts, accounting for 24 seats in the 243-member assembly.
New Delhi, September 5, 2017 : 26th July witnessed a big political drama in India, when Nitish Kumar, the C.M. of Bihar submitted his resignation.
The government in Bihar was a coalition of three political parties; Nitish Kumar’s JD(U), Lalu Yadav’s RJD and Congress.
Nitish was back in the C.M’s chair, the very next day due to the support extended to his party, JD (U) by BJP to form the government in Bihar.
The coalition of the aforesaid three parties thereby collapsed, which annoyed Lalu Yadav, the head of RJD a lot.
Lalu Yadav hijacked the plank of secularism to indulge in blatant corruption and promote his family in politics.
Secularism implies the principle of separating government institutions as well as politicians from religion and religious figures. In India the meaning of secularism has entirely been altered by politicians like Lalu, who openly woo Muslim fundamentalists from Mosques and waste government funds in order to appease them.
Lalu keeps on harping upon keeping Muslims safe in Bihar. Maintenance of law and order is the foremost task of any elected government, what’s the big deal in it?
Lalu’s politics involves developing vote banks from his caste comprising of Yadavs and Muslims.
He portrays himself as the ‘messiah’ of Muslims by aligning with fundamentalist Muslim preachers and gangsters like Shahbuddin.
Lalu never addresses the root cause of poverty and backwardness among Indian Muslims.
It is largely due to the community shunning of mainstream educational institutes and going to worthless madrasas, (Muslim religious schools) which primarily focus on students, rote learning of the Muslim holy book; Koran.
In the absence of modern knowledge, madrasa graduates are unable to improve their material prosperity and face the challenges of contemporary society.
The Ulemas or the Islamic scholars’ regressive attitude is reflected in the following statement of Maulana Samiul Haq, of the Haqqania madrasa, a prominent Deobandi madrasa; “Young minds are not for thinking. We catch them for the madrasas when they are young, and by the time they are old enough to think, they know what to think.”
Fake seculars like Lalu would never tell Muslims to study in proper schools because an educated Muslim can easily decipher the tricks played by such politicians.
A large number of illiterate or madrasa brand Muslims suit Lalu because then by showing the fear of BJP and Hindus, these Muslims can be easily turned into vote banks for his political party.
CBI, ED and other government agencies recently conducted large number of raids on Lalu and his family. They discovered Billions amassed by this so called ‘champion of oppressed’.
Lalu accumulated large number of farm-houses, land holdings, companies etc. in the name of his family comprising of his illiterate wife and 9 children; 7 daughters and 2 sons.
Both his sons, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav, are school drop-outs. The former was the deputy CM of Bihar with various ministerial portfolios, while the latter was the Health Minister of the province in the coalition government.
Lalu was declared guilty by the courts for his lead role in the Bihar fodder scam worth thousands of Crores. Lalu Yadav was jailed for 135 days in 1997 but he was lodged in a Bihar Military Police guest house with all comforts.
Before his incarceration, Lalu installed his uneducated wife Rabri Devi as the C.M. of Bihar. Lalu was jailed on various other occasions for his involvement in the aforementioned swindle.
Every time, Lalu was put in prison, he received 5 star hotel facilities and got bail easily. Lalu continued being the de facto C.M of Bihar by inducting his wife as the rubber- stamp C.M. of Bihar.
He was finally sentenced to a 5 year jail term in October 2013 by a special CBI court.
Instead of being in a jail, he is again out on bail, busy in enriching and establishing his progeny in politics.
A poster for Lalu Yadav’s political rally in Patna on Sunday, 27th August depicted one of Lalu’s foolish son as Lord Krishna while the other buffoon is shown as Arjun. Lalu’s daughter and Rajya Sabha M.P, Misa Bharti is depicted as the famous freedom fighter, Rani of Jhansi; Lakshmibai. Lalu and his wife Rabri are blessing their children in this poster.
What a mockery of historical and religious characters.
Lalu is saying that he and his family are being victimized. These utterances constitute ‘heights of shamelessness’.
Lalu indulged in blatant corruption and misuse of office for personal gains. On getting exposed he started parroting; this is a conspiracy of BJP and law would take its own course.
These terms in India mean that court cases would drag for 20-30 years. The politician will die but the court proceedings would still remain pending.
Classic example is Jayalalitha, the court cases against her were continuing since, 1996 but the final judgment was passed in 2017 after her death.
Lalu’s son, Tejashwi Prasad, the Ex-Deputy C.M of Bihar was a member of IPL cricket team, Delhi Daredevils for 4 years from 2008-2012.
During these 4 years, Tejashwi didn’t play a single game for Delhi Daredevils.
Which sporting team in the world would keep such a useless player in its squad?
Delhi Daredevils is owned by GMR group. This business house must be investigated, as to what were the compelling reasons behind continuous retention of this trash cricketer, who wasn’t competent to play even a single game during 4 seasons.
What were the financial benefits given to Tejashwi? Did the GMR group receive concessions from Lalu Yadav in exchange for keeping his son in Delhi Daredevils team? These are serious issues and need further investigations.
Misa Bharti, eldest daughter of Lalu Yadav is a Rajya Sabha M.P. She topped the MBBS examination of Patna Medical College Hospital during the late 90’s.
Misa never excelled in her classes, either at school or college. At her convocation, the presenter of the degree requested her not to treat any patients ever.
Lalu through his clout in Bihar first got her admission into MBBS and then deceptively made her a topper.
Misa Bharti after topping her MBBS studies and obtaining her medical degree did not work as a Doctor even for a single day, neither did she start her own medical practice.
This is humbug Lalu Yadav, the ‘self- styled’ protector of Muslims and ‘self- declared’ skipper of the Indian opposition political parties, comprising of so called secular forces but in reality just corrupt family controlled political dynasties.
Lalu and his political clan should be imprisoned for at least a minimum period of 10 years with provisions of no bail plus hard labor in the jail.
All undeclared properties; including land parcels, bank accounts, commercial businesses, residences etc. unearthed by the authorities during raids on Lalu and his family must be confiscated by the central government.
Lalu’s party RJD, which is nothing more than a corrupt family enterprise should be disbanded and a life ban imposed on Lalu plus his kin from pursuing political careers.
An exemplary example needs to be made of this corrupt, Lalu so, as to deter other existing as well as budding ‘Lalu Prasad Yadavs’, abounding in the Indian political system from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

Hyderabad: MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday said that he will not be cowed down by threats from Islamic State, and continue to speak out against it as it has nothing to do with Islam.
A day after somebody tweeted on his wall, asking him to shut his mouth and leave democracy, the Hyderabad MP, who moves around without any security, said he would not seek protection in the wake of threats.
I receive such threats everyday. I will live as long as Allah wills,
Stating that IS’ ideology is devilish and based on hatred, Owaisi said there was need to finish this ideology.
“They don’t know mercy. They don’t know the meaning of mercy. They massacred 1.5 lakh Muslims, including scholars,” he said, pointing out that all Islamic scholars in India and abroad have condemned IS actions and urged people to be cautious.
He said his Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) had taken a political stand that it is against all anti-national forces.
Nobody can cast an evil eye on India. All Indians irrespective of their religion will unitedly counter any such threat. We have political differences and we will continue to have it, but when it comes to the integrity of our beloved country, we are one,
An alleged IS sympathizer had tweeted Wednesday “It’s better for you to shut your mouth on Islamic State if you don’t know the truth, Islamic State will invade India soon.”
To this Owaisi replied “Sir, you are a bloody Takfiri, if you want to debate on evil ISIS I am ready you will not be able to counter my theological Points.”
You can dream so keep dreaming Takfiri read book on ISIS will bring you out of Darkness of ISIS Allah give Taufeeq,
Takfiri is the word used for those Muslims who accuse other Muslims of apostasy. Owaisi said he replied as he would not have kept quiet on the rubbish of invading India.
The IS sympathizer, then tweeted asking Owaisi to leave democracy. “Your Disgrace for Muslims of India. Opposing Islamic state will lead you to hell only repent before end.”
Owaisi told reporters that this itself shows that IS thinking is devilish. “The power of sending somebody to hell or heaven rests solely with Allah. It’s not in the hands of any human being,” he added.
Asked why he did not lodge a complaint with police, the MP said when the government is monitoring everything, it was for the government to trace the person who tweeted and take action.
On Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy’s statement that the work on the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya would start before this year-end, the MIM chief said it was contempt of court as the matter was subjudice.
Swamy had also stated on Wednesday that he hoped the Supreme Court would deliver the judgment in Ayodhya case by August-September.
“How does he know when the court is going to give the verdict,” the MP asked and alleged that Swamy is casting aspersions on the Supreme Court.
On the pillars and stones being brought into Ayodhya by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, he demanded that the Uttar Pradesh government should take immediate action and seize the material.
Pointing out that the status quo has to be maintained as per the orders of the Supreme Court, Owaisi said, though preparations were being made for an offense, the state government was doing nothing, and alleged that the ruling Samajwadi Party is hand-in-glove with the BJP.

New Delhi: After NDA’s defeat in Bihar, finance minister Arun Jaitley said that the loss will not hamper the economic reform process in Bihar. “I don’t see it as a setback to the economy and structural reforms will continue. They should continue at a rapid pace”
He said the government would continue with reforms by taking executive actions and also in the Budget, which would be declared in February next year.
“Our commitment is the states which need to develop more we have to help them more,” he added.
While NDA managed to get only 58 seats (BJP 53) in the 243-member Bihar assembly, Mahagathbandhan comprising of RJD,JD(U) and Congress got a whooping 178 seats.
The Finance Minister said that the “index of opposition unity” was one of the major factors that led to the triumph of the Mahagathbandhan in the Bihar assembly elections.
He admitted that some irresponsible statements by certain BJP members changed the narrative, leading to their loss.
When quizzed about the loss he said, “I don’t see it as a setback to the economy at all. If under Nitish Kumar, Bihar grows and grows well, we have already announced economic package for the state, certainly we are going to help.”
On the specific question of the pending Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill, he hoped that Bihar would support the legislation.
In an interview with a magazine on being asked whether Bihar election was a referendum on the policies of the Centre, Arun Jaitley said, “The word referendum is loosely used.Every election is not a referendum. A state election is not a referendum. You are not contesting on one issue.”
