After Congress mouthpiece says Sonia’s father had fascist link, party calls magazine ‘defunct’

The AICC spokesperson distanced the party from Nirupam’s act of sacking the magazine editor. “What does he do in his personal capacity is his responsibility. In his personal capacity, he can be editor of any magazine and decide to keep or sack any employee. The party has nothing to do with it,” he said. In Delhi, Congress leaders Salman Khurshid and Raj Babbar said that the issue should be seriously looked into.

From Dadri to India’s Daughter: The biggest outrages of 2015

The flipside of these 24/7 outrages was that a lot important events weren’t covered by mainstream media, which has limited resources. Hopefully, we will mature as a a society and outrage about things that really matter.

BJP govt failed to arrest spread of dengue in Rajasthan: Sachin Pilot

Health and medical departments, and civic bodies are lacking fogging equipment and chemicals nor the state government is providing free medicines to patients

Expressing serious concern over the outbreak of seasonal diseases in Rajasthan, Congress leader Sachin Pilot accused the BJP government of failing to arrest the spread of dengue in the state. “It is unfortunate…a BJP MLA revealed that dengue claimed 30 lives in last six months in Jhunjhunu district alone, and medical and health departments are constantly denying casualties,” Pilot said in a statement.Even the BJP MP from Jhunjhunu has posed a question to the chief medical and health officer on careless attitude of medical and health departments, Pilot said. Health and medical departments, and civic bodies are lacking fogging equipment and chemicals nor the state government is providing free medicines to patients, he said.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Sanjay Nirupam urges old guard of Congress to fall in line

The larger subtext of infighting between the party leaders is that many of the old guard are not comfortable with Rahul Gandhi as the head of the party.

Sanjay Nirupam

Amidst report of friction between the old guard of Congress and the new turks, because of the party’s slump to a historic low in the last election, senior leader Sanjay Nirupam has now spoken out on the issue. Nirupam said that in many state units, the president of the unit was not getting a free hand to run the party owing to obstruction from the old guard. According to the Mumbai Congress chief, it is the young turks that have to finally drive forward the party and hence the old leadership shouldn’t be an impediment to their growth. <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Punjab, Congress has promoted relatively young leadership to the top echelons which has led to much heartburn among its older leaders. But, according to Nirupam, this is only natural and the likes of Ajay Maken, Sachin Pilot and Pratap Bajwa deserve their time in the sun for their hardwork over the years. Nirupam was quoted as saying, “The tussle is a matter of concern among the Congress rank and file nationally. It has to end”. The larger subtext of infighting between the party leaders is that many of the old guard are not comfortable with Rahul Gandhi as the head of the party. Hence many of the younger ones, considered proteges of Congress VP, are facing stern opposition. There has been a lot of speculation about when Rahul Gandhi will formally take over the mantle of the party, but many believe that the simmering dissent has delayed his coronation. Nirupam though believes that it is high time that Congress got its act together to fight against BJP.

Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Saturday dubbed the CBI’s action in the ambulance scam as ‘vendetta driven malicious prosecution’, saying it was aimed at diverting the attention of the people from the Lalit Modi issue.

Sachin Pilot

Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Saturday dubbed the CBI’s action in the ambulance scam as ‘vendetta driven malicious prosecution’, saying it was aimed at diverting the attention of the people from the Lalit Modi issue.”Action by CBI (in ambulance scam) is on prodding of Raje Government. It is nothing but a meek, vendetta driven malicious prosecution… We wanted a CBI probe into Lalit Modi issue and Rajasthan Chief Minister is trying to divert people’s attention by levelling such false charges,” Pilot told ANI.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> Pilot further said that attempt to embroil him in the ambulance case is ‘purely a fabrication’. “Their attempt to embroil me in this matter is purely a fabrication…It’s time that Raje Government stopped going after political opponents and instead order probe into her and her son Dushyant’s involvement in Lalit Modi gate,” he said.The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over the ambulance scam probe on Friday against former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot and other members of the Congress party, The scam dates back to 2009 when Krishna’s company, Ziqitza Healthcare, a company run by Ravi Krishna, received a tender to operate 108 ambulances across Rajasthan, Bihar and Punjab.An audit was conducted after the BJP’s allegations that Krishna’s company was being paid money for ambulances which were on record only on paper, after which huge financial irregularities in the way the ambulances were operated, with losses amounting to Rs. 14 crore.

CBI takes over probe against former Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot in ambulance scam

The CBI has taken over the ambulance scam probe against former Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot and other members of the Congress party.

Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot

The CBI has taken over the ambulance scam probe against former Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot and other members of the Congress party.The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had last year said that Congress Party leaders should be willing to undergo a CBI probe for their alleged involvement in an ambulance scam.Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had earlier asked for an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the ambulance scam in which her predecessor, Ashok Gehlot and other Congress leaders face allegations.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rajasthan Health Minister Rajendra Rathore said the Congress was finally facing a kind of probe it had frequented on other parties, when in power.”This is in the nature of the Congress. They had framed a lot of people in fake encounters and would involve the CBI and make a lot of noise about it. They should not have a problem if any institution or the CBI is involved in investigation, rather they should welcome it,” he said.Other leaders who have been named in the scam include Sachin Pilot, Ravi Krishna, son of former Cabinet minister, Vayalar Ravi and former finance minister, P Chidambaram’s son, Karti Chidambaram, among others.The scam dates back to 2009 when Krishna’s company, Ziqita Health Care Limited got the tender to run the 108 ambulance service, which was a part of the union government’s National Rural Health Mission and a public-private partnership.The BJP in 2012 had alleged that Krishna’s company was being paid money for ambulances which were on record only on paper. An audit report followed and financial irregularities were found but no action was taken. Pilot and Karti Chidambaram had been directors in Ziqita, which further complicated matters.

Rahul Gandhi should take charge as Congress president soon, says Sachin Pilot

Pilot feels that the Congress vice president has been able to energise the party after the rout in the Lok Sabha elections and has been leading it from the front by taking on the ruling BJP inside and outside Parliament.

Rahul Gandhi should take over as Congress president soon, says Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot who also wants Sonia Gandhi to remain the parliamentary party head to guide the organisation.Pilot feels that the Congress vice president has been able to energise the party after the rout in the Lok Sabha elections and has been leading it from the front by taking on the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party inside and outside Parliament.”Rahul Gandhi should take charge soon (as party president),” he told PTI while insisting that it was his personal view and the Congress Working Committee will take a call on Rahul’s elevation. “It will be collective decision of the party,” he said.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Pilot, who was handpicked by Rahul to lead the Rajasthan unit after it was decimated in both Assembly as well as Lok Sabha polls, emphasised that Sonia Gandhi will continue to be the “guiding force” for the party.He said Rahul’s strategy is to build the party in the states so that it regains its strength by next election in 2019 for a comeback at the Centre.He also rejected the charge that the Congress was being “obstructionist” by stalling Parliament, saying it was the main opposition party’s duty to highlight BJP leaders’ alleged involvement in Lalit Modi issue and Vyapam scam.”Just because you have got a majority does it mean that you have got a blank cheque to do as you wish?” he said, attacking the Narendra Modi government over its “stubbornness” on the land bill and “failure” to reach out to the opposition.He said Congress does not need a certificate from BJP on reforms and claimed that the saffron party had blocked Parliament over “smaller” issues when it was in the opposition.

Rajasthan civic poll: Results a vote of no confidence for BJP govt: Sachin Pilot

“Congress won in the home turf of CM Vasundhara Raje who is facing allegations of corruption. Voters have understood and are looking at Congress with hope,” Pilot said.

“BJP has lost moral right to govern,” Pilot said.

Terming the results of the 129 civic body polls in Rajasthan a “vote of no confidence” against the BJP government, state Congress president Sachin Pilot on Thursday said Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje-led BJP government has lost the moral right to govern. Citing the reduction in vote share difference between Congress and BJP from 26 per cent in the Lok Sabha polls to 1% now, Pilot expressed satisfaction over the party’s performance, especially in Jhalawar, Baran and Dholpur, which are connected to Raje and her son Dushyant Singh. “Nearly 64 per cent of the electorate voted against BJP in the civic polls which reflects that people are now going against the ruling party. BJP has lost moral right to govern,” Pilot said, attributing BJP’s setback in Jhalawar to the allegations of corruption against Raje for her links with former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Congress won majority in two civic bodies in Jhalawar district represented by Raje in Assembly and her son Dushyant Singh in Lok Sabha, while BJP won three. In Dholpur, Congress secured majority in all three civic bodies of Badi, Dholpur and Rajakhera. Raje belongs to the erstwhile royal family of Dholpur. BJP also lost majority in Baran district’s two civic bodies which falls in Parliamentary constituency of Dushyant.”Congress won in the home turf of Chief Minister who is facing allegations of corruption. Voters have understood and are looking at Congress with hope,” Pilot said at a press conference here.In Ajmer also, he said, BJP could not do well despite the fact that two ministers in the Rajasthan government and one Union Minister hail from there. Accusing the BJP of misusing government machinery during elections, Pilot said despite all efforts, BJP failed to maintain its vote share which declined as compared to the Lok Sabha elections in which the party had won all the Lok Sabha seats in the state.Pilot said he and other leaders raised the issue of corruption in the government during election rallies and meetings and voters gave their mandate accordingly.

In more trouble for the BJP which has been defending External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj so far despite opposition demands that she be sacked for helping Lalit Modi, the former IPL boss has claimed that Raje secretly supported his immigration plea in Britain.

Politicians losing space to Bollywood, business tycoons, says Sachin Pilot

Congress leader Sachin Pilot today said politicians are losing space and shine to Bollywood celebrities and business tycoons.”Today, politicians are losing space and shine to Bollywood icons and businesses tycoons.

“At least 10 policemen and as many Congress workers, including Sachin Pilot, were injured,” the police said.

PCC spokesperson Archan Sharma said, “Pilot has received minor bruises in the canecharge.”

A case against protesters was registered at Jyoti Nagar police station.

30 injured were admitted to SMS hospital in the city while rest were in other hospitals.

The Congress workers were protesting against the Centre’s new land bill and power tariff hike in Rajasthan.

Police had to resort to mild lathicharge to disperse the protesters who tried to break barricades for entry into the Assembly’s cordoned area at Jyoti Nagar barricade point, DCP Ravi Dutt Gaur said.

“In retaliation, the protesters pelted stones at the police, injuring 10 cops,” the DCP said.

Over 100 Congress workers and PCC president Pilot courted arrest under section 129 of CrPC, and later released at different places near Jaipur, he said.

Earlier at the Udyog Maidan, the Congress workers, led by Youth Congress National President Amrendra Singh Raja and state president Ashok Chandana (MLA), organised a meeting and marched towards the Assembly, the DCP said.

The protest was organised as the Rajasthan Electricity Regulatory Commission has announced revised power tariffs for different consumer categories, permitting Discoms to increase domestic electricity charges by around 16 per cent (85 paise per unit) and non-domestic usages charges by around 19 percent. The average increase for all categories is 16.89 percent.

The fixed charges too were increased for all categories and the hike ranges between Rs 20 and Rs 50 per connection per month.
