New Delhi, July 9 The Congress on Thursday demanded the resignation of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, citing that the Supreme Court has handed over the Vyapam scam probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
“The message from the Supreme Court is clear. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan must step down for a proper investigation,” Congress leader Tom Vadakkan told the media here.
The apex court has handed over to the CBI the investigation into the criminal cases related to the Vyapam scam and over 40 deaths linked to it. The court directed the CBI to start its probe from Monday.
Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said: “After this directive, the country has greater confidence in the judiciary.”
“The court has also said that after CBI hearing, they will take a decision whether the case needs to be monitored by the Supreme Court. I thank the god also for giving good sense to Chouhan. This should have come two years back,” he added.
Pointing out that Home Minister Rajnath Singh had earlier ruled out a CBI probe, the senior Congress leader said: “There cannot be a better example of the u-turn by the home minister and the chief minister.”
He said all those lodged in jail in connection with the scam should be made prosecution witnesses so that they can tell the names of the corrupt officials. (IANS)
New Delhi, September 18, 2017 : If your interests lie in Indian politics and if you are fairly aware of the controversies that stem out of Twitter, then this news is for you! Senior Congress pioneer Manish Tewari took to the micro-blogging website on September 17 and utilized hateful speech tending to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a tweet- hours after sending his ‘good wishes’ for the Indian Prime Minister’s birthday
The episode began with a tweet of a short video shared by Tewari of a blunder which demonstrated Modi strolling while the national anthem was being played during his Russia trip in 2015.
Through his tweet, Manish Tewari attempted to ridicule Prime Minister Modi for following individuals who were seen displaying satisfaction via social media after Kannada senior journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead outside her home in Bengaluru.
Tewari’s tweet was responded to by a user who at that point continued to contrast Modi and Mahatma Gandhi.
Aap modi ko desbhakti Na sikhaye cha-cha? Unhe mahatma Gandhi v nhi sikha skate .Modi ke DNA may..Bus aap kitna niche gir sakte ho dekh lia😊
Manish Tewari is the second Congress pioneer after Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh to experience harsh criticism for utilizing foul dialect against Modi.
Previously, on September 8, senior pioneer of the INC, Digvijaya Singh, had likewise shared a meme in which injurious language was utilized against the Prime Minister. Singh had additionally said that Prime Minister was a specialist in the “art of tricking”.
The previous chief minister of Madhya Pradesh was broadly censured in similar manner as Tewari was.
The occurrence has exposed a new low as far for the Congress party is concerned.
The Congress has lost any high moral ground it claimed on the issue of online abuse. Why blame the PM for who he follows then? https://t.co/NUjgjO6rqI
Twiterrati and the Indian masses have to a great extent censured the response by none other than a legal counselor who was formerly the information and broadcasting minister of the nation. Tewari, who is also the official representative of the INC has been at the receiving end of a lot of flak and rightly so. It is extremely improper for any educated individual to indulge in the use of such foul dialect, more so when they are accountable for public position.
This also brings forth a larger question- Have people’s dispositions changed toward what’s considered socially acceptable language? Have discussion platforms on the internet further wrecked this understanding as people get an opportunity to use words they might not have said out loud behind a lock of anonymity?

Bhopal, July 16, 2017: Conventionally, the average duration of a government officer’s stay in a posting has been around three years. But here is a woman officer who has been transferred 25 times in 13 years, that too without being assigned any reason for her being frequently shifted.
Amita Singh Tomar, the now-harassed woman officer, has no corruption charges against her.
The keen-watchers of the TV quiz show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC) might recall the way Bollywood super star Amitabh Bachchan was impressed with her as she went on answering the questions to win Rs 50 lakh in 2011.
Posted as Tehsildar in Biaora in Madhya Pradesh’s Rajgarh district, Tomar has now been transferred to Sidhi district.
Upset with the decision of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government, she tweeted: “This is my 25th transfer in 13 years of my career. Whenever I got transferred, I was sent 500 km away.”
Tomar told IANS on Friday that when applications were sought for transfer, she had opted for a transfer to the Gwalior-Chambal division, but she had been transferred to Sidhi instead.
She has now written to senior state officials and even approached Prime Minister Narendra Modi through Twitter to apprise him of her ordeal.
“I won Rs 50 lakh in the TV quiz show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC)’ in 2011 and the people then began to recognise me as ‘KBC Wali Madam’. But now I am known as ‘Transfer Wali Madam’ because of constant transfers,” she said.
Incidentally, Tomar has hit the headlines in the past as well, for reasons other than her frequent transfers.
During her posting in Raoti in Ratlam district in June 2016, she had written in Facebook: “When Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Afghanistan then the people there carrying the Indian national flag in their hands raised slogans of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’.”
In the next lines, the woman officer requested PM Modi to launch a “Rajiv Gandhi Suicide Plan”, so that the Congressmen and those following secular ideology could commit suicide after reading such reports.
A controversy had then erupted over her Facebook post, following which she was transferred to Rajgarh district. (IANS)
