Opposition ready to set winter session agendas


New Delhi: With political majors including the Congress, Trinamool Congress and CPM upping the ante, the issue of ‘intolerance’ is expected to be one of the major concern to be tabled in the upcoming winter session of the Parliament which starts on November 26.

The political parties are relentlessly pressing for a dialogue on the issue.

Moreover, with the West Bengal assembly elections approaching early next year, Trinamool Congress is all geared up to question the government’s ‘ache din’ propaganda. They have already submitted a notice to Rajya Sabha asking for a discussion under Rule 167 on the ‘unity in diversity’ theme.

This discussion is expected to encompass the issue of intolerance prevailing in India.”We will ask all other opposition parties to join us on the issue,” said MP Derek O’Brien told reporters.

“Unity in diversity and operational federalism are two key issues that need to be discussed threadbare in Parliament,” he added.

Under the Rule 176, CPM has also submitted a notice asking for a short period discussion. As both CPM and TMC are rival parties they would not want to be seen under the same umbrella. This has led to two different notices being submitted by the parties on the same issue.

“Our tactics will be decided on the floor of the House, but our strategy is clear,” said O’Brienin in the interview.

46 MP’s of TMC have been directed by Chief Mamata Banerjee to participate in debates to showcase their ideas rather than disrupting businesses. Although TMC does not rule out the prospects of partaking in walkouts and disruption by others.

The discussion is expected to comprise of debates over operational federalism apart from Unity in diversity as it is speculated to hit out at the Centre for meddling in states’ affairs, which can be a potential attempt for other parties to join in.

‘Janaraksha Yatra Kerala’ Witnesses escalating BJP-Left Confrontation

Hurling anti-left maneuver during Janaraksha Yatra Kerala, Indian BJP National President Amit Shah launched serious allegation against the ruling CPM government for triggering political violence and imputed to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan the culpability for the mass killings of party workers in the state.

The BJP Chief traced back the origin of violence-centric politics in ”God’s Own Country” to the inception of the Communist regime. “Left always paralyses the state it rules. West Bengal and Tripura witnessed similar political vehemence under the CPM government”, elucidated the President.

Criticizing the Human Rights Activists of the nation, Amit Shah pointed out that they are very selective when it comes to what they support. “You turn your eyes away when our workers die. Why is there no march in Delhi? Violence has no color. More than 120 workers of the BJP have succumbed due to political violence so far. What was their fault? They were working for the betterment of Kerala”, complained the BJP Chief.

Acclaiming BJP’s ideology enthusiastically, Shah called upon the people to join as workers. Addressing the gathering at ‘Janaraksha Yatra Kerala’, the President added that family members of the deceased have stood by the BJP and he wouldn’t let the martyrdom of the workers go waste.

Amit Shah inaugurated the ‘Janaraksha Yatra Kerala’ at Payyannur to protest against alleged killings of party workers. The “padayatra” was led by the party’s State President Kummanam Rajashekhharan.

The National President of BJP attributed the diminishing power of the CPM to their increasing reliance on political violence. Apart from CPM, the once dominating Congress is also losing momentum thereby giving BJP the opportunity to flourish with their ideology. “More the mud of violence, more the lotus will bloom” added Shah.

The BJP Chief assured his party workers and volunteers that BJP would fight the war with CPM until emerging victorious. Shah declared, “We must all unite against the rule of the Left Government.”

Shortly after the launching of the yatra, three BJP workers adorning the National Highway 66 were ambushed by anonymous men on Monday. During his address, Shah alleged that the assailants were CPM cadres who have also destroyed BJP flags in the area.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is ready to augment the saffron stand with his visit to Kerala on Wednesday. As per the report of Times Now, Adityanath will basically be in the Muslim-dominated district of Mallapuram.
