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?
