The CPI-M on Tuesday demanded the removal of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over their alleged links with former IPL chief Lalit Modi as well as a “probe at the highest level” into the matter.

“The charges against Sushma Swaraj and Raje are very serious and need to be thoroughly investigated at the highest level, which can be a Supreme Court-monitored probe or a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe like in the 2G scam,” Communist Party of India-Marxist general secretary Sitaram Yechury said at a press conference here.

“Till the probe is completed, the external affairs minister and the Rajasthan chief minister should not remain in office. Either they should be removed or they should demit office on their own,” he said.

Yechury said his party’s stand was the same as far as the Vyapam scam was concerned. “It is a deadly cocktail of crime and corruption. It is a huge Pandora’s box,” he quipped.

There should also be a probe into this (Vyapam) scam and before that Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should also be removed, the CPI-M leader said.

He said the removal of these dignitaries was essential to ensure an unbiased probe.

On the NDA government’s offer of a discussion on the Lalit Modi issue, Yechury said a discussion cannot substitute for a probe.

Yechury said the government should apply its own yardstick (while in opposition) as during the 2G scam the then opposition BJP also held parliament hostage till its demand for a joint parliamentary panel probe was met.

Asserting that the onus of running the House was on the government, the CPI-M leader said: “Remove the ministers, conduct an investigation. After this, we are ready for a discussion.”

While the Lok Sabha was on Tuesday adjourned after obituary references, the Rajya Sabha was disrupted by the Opposition led by the Congress over the Lalit Modi issue.

Yechury also dismissed as “speculation” reports of a division in the Opposition ranks.

He also questioned the prime minister’s silence on the issue, saying, “The prime minister has become Maunendra Modi.”

NEW DELHI: In a recent Facebook video, Ahmar Mustikhan has communicated his views on the recent meeting of Kulbhushan Yadav with his wife Chetna and mother Avanti. Mustikhan is a renowned writer, analyst, and veteran Baloch journalist. He is also the founder of a non-profit organisation known as ’American Friends of Balochistan’. Through this organization, Mustikhan expresses his views on atrocities of Pakistani army been hammered on Baloch people.

Kulbhushan Yadav is an Indian national, who is been sentenced to death by the Pakistani Army court. The recent emotional reunion between Kulbhushan Jadhav and his wife and mother has garnered enough global attention due to the mental torcher experienced by both the ladies at the Pakistani foreign office. The cold-shouldered response from Pakistan’s side was fiercely condemned by the Indian people and called it a violation of the human rights of the women. Foreign minister Sushma Swaraj even called it a “propaganda weapon” used by Pakistan.

MustiKhan in his video referred Pakistan as “Chapal Chor Pakistan” (Slipper thief Pakistan) because Pakistan’s foreign office had confiscated the slippers of Kulbhushan’s wife on the pretext of security concern. The women were even asked to remove their mangalsutra, bindi, and bangles for the same reason. Later on, Pakistani media didn’t let any stone unturned by harassing both the women and calling them murderer’s wife and mother.

On this basis, Mustikhan viewed that a Hindu or an Indian can never get Justice from the hands of Pakistan. To support his views, he quoted a historic event of 1927 which is related to a Hindu Marwari merchant, Raj Shivratan Chandraratan Mohatta. The merchant had built a very splendid mansion in the love of his ailing wife and named it ‘Mohatta Palace’ and was considered as the most beautiful residence of Karachi at that time. But Muhammad Ali Jinnah got his eyes on his house and forced him to vacate it. Soon, the house was taken over and turned into Pakistan’s first foreign office. After the capital was relocated to Islamabad from Karachi, the mansion was transferred to Jinnah’s sister, Fatima Jinnah. So, this was the case of the first foreign office of Pakistan, as stated by Ahmar Mustikhan.

According to MustiKhan, the Indian people who crib about Narendra Modi are directly supporting the views of Pakistani Generals and militants. These are the same army generals who have the blood of millions of innocent people on their hands.  When Modi was elected as the Prime Minister of India, some people called him as the “Butcher of Gujarat”. MustiKhan also denounces the view that Kulbhushan Yadav and Ajmal Kasab are similar offenders, as claimed by the Pakistani media. But he openly challenges the Pakistani government regarding any proof related to Yadav’s case, whereas Kasab’s heinous act was captured live on CCTV cameras. Here, MustiKhan openly exposes the double face strategy of Pakistan.

MustiKhan even said, “If Jinnah is secular (as people says in Pakistan) than Laden is the best Democrat.” With his all these efforts, he is trying to make people aware of the war crimes against the people of Balochistan and has even requested the Indian people to support his cause of peace and harmony.
