Panaji: There was “tremendous corruption” in the northeastern states, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Sunday.

“There is tremendous corruption in the northeast. They say a road has been built, but there is no road. The money just disappears,” Parrikar said at a Bharatiya Janata Party workers meeting organised as part of a ‘mahasampark’ campaign in South Goa’s Margao town.

In an oblique reference to state Congress president Luizinho Faleiro, who has returned to Goa politics after a nearly decade-long stint as in-charge of the northeastern states, he said only those who were experts at managing “such things” were posted to the northeast.

“They have come back from the northeast. Ask them what they have done in the northeast?” Parrikar said.

Faleiro, who served as the in-charge of the northeast of the Congress for nearly eight years before taking up the Goa assignment last year, had last week attacked the BJP-led government in Goa for dragging residents into a debt trap.

New Delhi, September 25, 2017: The youth wing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came out to protest against the University and former vice president Hamid Ansari who lately attended an event in Kozhikode held by Delhi Institute of objective studies.
The event was co-organised by National Women’s Front (NWF), the women’s wing of the radical Islamic outfit Popular Front of India to mark the international conference on “the role of women to make a humane society”. It has also been alleged that an Islamic fundamentalist organization, Popular Front of India (PFI) was also part of the organizing committee.
According to the reports, the criminal of radical outfit PFI was accused of cutting the hands of Professor Joseph for being offensive to the Islamic Prophet Mohammad. It has also been accused of accusing National Investigative Agency over controversial ‘Love Jihad’ cases.
The university however claim that they have received letters from certain organizations, though not being part of the event but were collaborating in it.
BJP now demand an apology from the former vice president for attending the event that was organized by the organization who has also been responsible for recruiting youngsters for the Islamic state.
The question arises what prompted the Vice President of India for 10 years to attend an event organized by a radical Islamic people of Popular Front of India?
Is he being supportive of their agenda? Or is Hamid Ansari a thankless Muslim Indian?

Panaji, Sep 15 (IANS) One blanket solution for a problem can never work for the whole country, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Friday, underlining that the Supreme Court order last year banning the sale of liquor 500 metres from highways was one such solution.

“Be it legislation, judiciary or government, we think that one type, one bracketed solution is appropriate for all problems… (But) What may be good in New Delhi may not be good in Goa. It may be actually negative in Goa. It will not work in Goa,” Parrikar said.

“One solution cannot be there for the nation,” he said.

Parrikar was speaking on the concluding day of a two-day conference near Panaji on ‘Good Governance and Replication of Best Practices’ organised by the Central Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances.

Commenting on the apex court’s order banning alcohol sale along highways, Parrikar said: “The basic logic was punish a drunk driver. After the order I found many drunk drivers carrying bottles. Earlier two pegs or three pegs was what they took, now they drink a bottle. Now they carry (bottles).”

“Punish a drunk driver… The positive aspect is considered. But at the same time one solution cannot be there for the nation,” he said.

The former Defence Minister said while many legislations may induce good governance, they also “induce certain negativity”. “Despite of that, I feel that these acts are necessary,” Parrikar said. (source:IANS)

Bihar, July 29, 2017: “Lalu ji, I beg your forgiveness, but after running the government for 20 months, I cannot do it any longer. I am going to quit,” the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar told his ally.

Nitish Kumar on Thursday took oath as Bihar CM for the 6th time, marking a historic transition of the state from a Grand Alliance government to an NDA regime. He resigned as Bihar Chief Minister mentioning political differences with the former ally, Lalu Prasad Yadav led Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), over corruption charges against the RJD leader’s son Tejashwi Yadav.

Soaring with 131 votes, Nitish Kumar is back with power in Bihar. ‘Secularism can’t mask corruption,” said the Chief Minister in the Bihar Assembly with Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi by his side, reported Zee Media Bureau.

Nitish added, “These are arrogant people. Political parties get a mandate in elections to serve the people. The people are fed-up”.

Alleging corruption charges against Lalu Prasad Yadav son, Tejashwi Yadav, Nitish proffered resignation to Tejashwi Yadav and terminated the 20-month-old grand alliance (mahagathbandhan) between JD(U) and RJD. Just within some time, JD (U) formed a new alliance with old ally BJP and Nitish headed back to the office, claiming support of 132 MLAs in a letter to Bihar governor Keshari Nath Tripathi.

In 2013, Nitish had terminated his 17-year coalition with the BJP over the party’s decision to name Narendra Modi its Prime Ministerial candidate.

Nitish’s decision to partner with BJP has not been taken up in good spirits by other party members. MP Ali Anwar brazenly expressed his dissatisfaction while JD (U) stalwart Sharad Pawar is reportedly provoked by the new development.

Today morning, Nitish moved the confidence motion to prove the majority of his new government amid harsh attacks from various counters. In the 243-member Bihar Assembly, 131 legislators voted in favour of the new alliance and 108 were against it.

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav argued that Nitish Kumar should have shown guts and dismissed him rather than joining hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Aapko sharam nahin aayi? (Aren’t you ashamed?),” asked Tejashwi, reported Zee Media Bureau .

Today morning, Patna High Court affirmed RJD’s petition challenging the appointment of Nitish as Chief Minister. However, the court refused to stoand p today’s trust vote, saying it would hear the case on Monday, 31 July.

 

This is how the nation praised and hailed CM Nitish Kumar-

Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA now operates in 18 states, kicking Congress out of the national equation. This, in turn, will have some significant bearing upcoming state elections and 2019 Lok Sabha election.
