New Delhi, March 23, 2017: Suman Kaushik, President of AAP Women Wing from Vikas Puri Vidhan Sabha (Assembly) has submitted a complaint to Delhi Police against AAP MLAs Naresh Balyan and Mahender Yadav. The incident took place on March 21, 2016, at Aryan Garden, Om Vihar in New Delhi.

Kaushik along with other AAP volunteers posed a question to Mahendra Yadav, Vikaspuri MLA regarding the unethical distribution of tickets in the upcoming MCD election. 50 percent seats in Delhi are reserved for women for the upcoming MCD elections. AAP leaders had been stating internally as to the media that they will give tickets to deserving women volunteers only and not to the dummy candidates. But in reality, this has not been the case.

Likewise, it was also proliferated by Vikaspuri MLA among the Women Wing that there shall be no ticket given to the dummy volunteers.

According to Suman Kaushik, in her ward, a dummy candidate was given the ticket as it is women reserved seat and the grassroots AAP women volunteers including her were being ignored.

So, Kaushik went along with Raghuvir Singh Prajapati, Jugnu Prajapati, Dimple Farhad and Jasbir to meet Mahender Yadav at Aryan Garden. But instead of a peaceful hearing, the women and other volunteers were assaulted according to Ms Kaushik- right after she voiced out on the prevalent issue, the hues of the peaceful gathering changed and women of Mahila Wing were seen paralysed with malevolence and beaten with sticks.

Newsgram reached to Suman Kaushik, who took a fearless stance in front of these nefarious minds to know the depth of the matter.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW:

“MLA, Naresh Balyan called us Sluts (Randi)”, said Suman Kaushik.  Further, she says, “the party is oppressed with plunders and hooligans- not only did they called us with names but also physically abused us, she further added.

Hooliganism is not a rare sight when it comes to politics but what’s unusual is the manhandling of women shamelessly in front of the public from a party that vouches for clean politics. To exhibit a blatant truth, these women were the grassroots volunteers of Aam Aadmi Party who rendered everything to nurture the party. However, such is the cynicism of Aam Aadmi Party to belittle these volunteers with hands and sticks.

In the aftermath of the lewd conflict, the women assembled and departed to the local Police Station in the vicinity to lodge FIR, nevertheless, the hapless volunteers were shunned there too.

“When we reached the Police station, there was no one who could listen to our woes. Kushan Pal, the SHO of Uttamnagar Police station didn’t pick my call despite him being familiar with my work in past. He picks my call every time but didn’t pick yesterday”, told Suman Kaushik to Newsgram.

The terror of such hooliganism has escalated to such a level that these women have stopped strolling on the streets.

“I don’t feel safe here, and anything can happen with me in the future. If such incidents can take place in the middle of a huge number of people, what security does we women have now alone?” says Suman.

Workers of Aam Aadmi Party joined in the pursuit to attain the commonness amongst the people but sadly, the party has failed to meet its own agendas in the meantime. While empowering women has always been the elevated issue for the nation, parties like these are only ruining the future of women by such malpractices.

Newsgram contacted Naresh Balyan, MLA of Uttamnagar with regard to the incident. He denied the accusations calling them fallacious.

New Delhi, November 8, 2017 : On November 8 2016, every Indian citizen sat glued to their TV screens as Narendra Modi was set to make a big announcement. Outcome? The Indian Prime Minster shocked the entire nation with the introduction of Demonetisation, a move that was to change the very foundation of the cash-dependent Indian economy.

The much-debated move by Modi garnered the attention of several well-versed economists from the country and abroad, alike. While some people willingly welcomed the move, there were others who stood in staunch criticism.

As the move completes its first year, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is set to observe November 8 as ‘anti-black money day’ to celebrate Demonetisation anniversary in the country.

On the eve of the Demonetisation anniversary, the BJP released a cheeky video claiming to depict how ‘corrupt’ politicians have been criticizing the move, as the nation won following demonetisation.

WATCH BJP’S TONGUE-IN-CHEEK VIDEO

In the video, the BJP attempted to take a dig at corrupt politicians, who have been criticizing PM Modi’s Demonetisation move.

In the video, a woman, playing the character of a frustrated, corrupt politician can be seen going on a rant over PM Modi’s note ban initiative, which was aimed to combat black money, corruption, fake currency and terrorism.

The video ends with a voice-over saying demonetisation has not only brought out this frustration of corrupt citizens, but also black-money, claiming that almost 99 per cent cash which was previously lying hidden with people has now entered the banking system.

The one-minute video, which is now going viral on social media, has already been re-tweeted more than 2 thousand times since it was released on November 7, on the eve of demonetization move.

Ahead of the Demonetisation anniversary, the last few days have witnessed several leaders present their opinions on PM Modi’s demonetization move.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley called PM Modi’s note ban initiative a ‘watershed moment’ while Piyush Goyal, Minister of Railways believes the move has pushed India towards a more transparent economy.

However, the move is being criticized by ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh calling it ‘irresponsible’. The opposition maintains that PM Modi’s note ban initiative has caused reckless damage to the country and the Indian economy.

On Demonetisation anniversary, the BJP is set to observe November 8 as ‘anti-black money day’, while opposition leaders are set to observe the day as ‘black day’ in protest against the note ban initiative.

The program is inseparable from Mahalaya and has been going on for over six decades till date. The magic is induced by the popular Birendra Krishna Bhadra whose voice makes the recitation of the “Chandi Kavya” even more magnificent! He has been a legend and the dawn of Mahalaya turns insipid without the reverberating and enchanting voice of the legendary man.

Mahalaya will keep spreading the magic and setting the vigor of the greatest festival of the Bengalis- the Durga Puja, to worship the supreme Goddess, eternally.
