Gujarat elections 2017: In Dhandhuka, PM Modi attacks Cong with ‘Tanker Raj’ jibe

In a direct attack to Congress party leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lashed at him for linking 2019 Lok Sabha elections with Ram Mandir issue. He was speaking in Dhandhuka on Wednesday.While the rally started two hours late, due to extreme weather, Modi not just mentioned about ‘Vikas’ but also said that one family did great injustice to Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar and Sardar Patel. When Pandit Nehru’s influence of the Congress was complete, the Congress ensured that Dr Ambedkar found it tough to join the Constituent Assembly.Further talking about ‘Tanker Raj’, Modi said, “Ambedkar was passionate about ensuring proper irrigation facilities to every part of India. BJP in Gujarat has ended the ‘Tanker Raj.’ Tanker business was firmly in the hands of Congress leaders and their families.” “We are in the process of installing solar pumps in farms and rooftops. In near future you will be given free electricity. It is not a lollypop and one time benefit but will have an effect to coming generations,” he said. Referring to what Sibal submitted in the Supreme Court on Tuesday Modi said, “Yesterday in Supreme Court, Sibal was arguing for the Babri Masjid. He is entitled to do that but is it right for him to say postpone hearing till 2019? Why does he have to link a Ram Mandir with elections. Is such thinking proper. Now, Congress links Ram Mandir with elections. They are least bothered about the nation.” Raking up the issue of triple talaq, Modi reminded the people of Dhanduka as part of the Gujarat Vikas Rally, that when the matter was in Supreme Court and the central government had to put their stand in an affidavit, many commented that Modi will remain silent for UP elections.”People told me not to speak on the matter or else it would have an impact on elections. But I said that I will not be silent as everything is not about elections. When it comes to the rights of women, I will speak. The issue was pending since the time of Rajiv Gandhi but it was for BJP, that now we have brought a law too.” In India, every now and then elections are there. If we take decisions based on polls, how will India progress. I would say let us have elections of LS and Vidhan Sabha together,” he said.

PM bids farewell to Ansari

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Bidding farewell to outgoing Vice President Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said his diplomatic stint in West Asia has had an influence on him and that he could freely pursue his “basic ideology” now after shedding Constitutional duties. Speaking in the Rajya Sabha, he mentioned about the career of Ansari, whose tenure as the Chairman of the Upper House came to an end today. “On behalf of the citizens and both Houses of Parliament, I express gratitude for the services you have rendered as Vice President of the nation,” Modi said. He hoped that Ansari would “continue to guide the nation in moving forward on the path laid down by the Constitution.” Modi noted that Ansari belonged to a family which has been in public life for about 100 years and that his grand parents had served as the head of a national party or in the Constituent Assembly. “You come from a family whose ancestors were associated at some of point of time with the Congress party and the ‘khilafat movement’,” he said. The prime minister then talked about the diplomatic career of 80-year-old Ansari. “A major part of your career was associated with West Asia as a diplomat. You spent many years of your life in that circle, in that atmosphere, in that ideology, in that debate and lived among such people,” he said. Modi said that even after retirement from service, Ansari’s work remained in the “same circle” as he worked with the Minority Commission and Aligarh Muslim University. “But during these 10 years (as Vice President), you had to deal with a different kind of responsibility (in running the House). Every moment, you had to remain confined to the Constitution and you made a good effort to fulfill it. “There may have been some struggle within you (all these years) but from now onwards, you won’t have to face this dilemma. You will have a feeling of freedom and you will get an opportunity to work, think and talk according to your basic ideology,” he told the outgoing Rajya Sabha Chairman. Modi said though he did not have much interaction with Ansari, he had got insight into many issues from him whenever they met before or after his foreign visits. Talking about the traits of a career diplomat, he said he understood these only after becoming the prime minister. “You cannot understand immediately what is the meaning of their smile or what is the meaning of the way they shake hands. Because they have been trained like this. I am sure those traits would have been used (by Ansari) in the Rajya Sabha over the last 10 years for the benefit of the House.” Conveying his best wishes to Ansari and wishing him a long life, Modi noted that the outgoing Chairman has also kept himself physically fit.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

SC seeks Centre’s reply on plea against special status to J-K

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court today sought the response of the Centre on a plea challenging the validity of Article 370 of the Constitution that grants special autonomous status to Jammu and Kashmir. The petition challenged the April 11 order of the Delhi High Court rejecting a plea saying nothing survives in it as the apex court has already dismissed a similar prayer on the issue. A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and justices Adarsh Goel and D Y Chandrachud issued notice to the Centre on the petition which also sought a direction to declare the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir as “void”, “illegal” and “ultravires” of the Constitution of India. The bench asked the government to reply within four weeks. In her petition, Kumari Vijayalakshmi Jha claimed that the high court had dismissed her plea by “wrongly following and misreading” the earlier judgement of the apex court. She had contended in the high court that Article 370 was a temporary provision that had lapsed with the dissolution of the state’s Constituent Assembly in 1957. The petition had said that the continuance of Article 370 even after the dissolution of the state’s Constituent Assembly and the J-K Constitution never getting the assent of the President of India or Parliament or Government of India, amounted to “fraud on the basic structure of our Constitution”. Advocate Anil Kumar Jha, appearing for the petitioner, claimed that the high court considered only the first prayer and had not taken into account other prayers mentioned in the plea. He said that earlier judgement of the apex court in 1969 was in a different context and, hence it could not have been relied upon. “The high court kept the judgement reserved for about 13 months and on April 11, 2017 pronounced the verdict dismissing the writ petition without considering the merits/issues involved therein,” the petition said. It also said the high court did not consider the judgment passed and ratio laid down by the apex court. In July 2014, the Supreme Court had dismissed a plea challenging the special status granted to Jammu and Kashmir and had asked the petitioner to move the high court.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Right to Privacy case: Overarching guidelines needed to protect an individual’s privacy, says SC

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that there has to be “overarching” guidelines to protect an individual’s private information in public domain to ensure that it was used only for an intended purpose.A nine-judge Constitution bench, dealing with the contentious issue whether right to privacy was a fundamental right, rejected plea of a Gujarat government lawyer that misuse of personal information could be dealt with on a “case-to-case basis” and said an all-embracing guideline was needed keeping in mind the size of the population.The bench, headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar, also referred to the fact that India was a signatory of a 1948 international convention which recognised privacy as a human right.Referring to arguments put forward by the Maharashtra government on the issue, the court said, “Even if we accept it that the Constituent Assembly dealt with it (privacy issue) and decided against including it as a fundamental right, then how you will deal with the fact that India is a signatory to the Universal Declaration on Human Rights which recognises it.”The bench, which also comprised justices J Chelameswar, S A Bobde, R K Agrawal, R F Nariman, A M Sapre, D Y Chandrachud, Sanjay Kishan Kaul and S Abdul Nazeer, said that there has to be an “overarching” or all-embracing guideline to ensure that the private information of individuals, put in public domain, wwas used only for an intended purpose.”If I give personal information like names, parents’ name and telephone numbers for a particular purpose, then a reasonable expectation will be that it is used only for that particular purpose… (Otherwise) how we will deal with the violations?” it asked.On the issue that a large number of people have put their personal information in public domain, the bench said, “When you have so many users, then you cannot decide on facts of each case. You have to have over-arching principles or guidelines to regulate.”At the outset, senior advocate C A Sundaram, representing the Maharashtra government, said the apex court has been entrusted with the power of interpretation of the Constitution and the law and it cannot introduce right to privacy as a fundamental right under the Constitution.”Parliament and only Parliament can do it,” he said.”This is not a case of interpretation of the Constitution or the law. This is the case of introduction of a right as a fundamental right. This can be done only by Parliament,” Sundaram said.He then referred to the terms, interpretation, introduction and interruption and said that the courts could interpret, but not introduce privacy as a fundamental right.In the Constituent Assembly debates, the forefathers of the Constitution had considered the issue of privacy and decided against including it as a fundamental right and if, now it was being felt that it should be considered as a fundamental right, then only Parliament could do it, he said.The bench, however, said that it could not be stated that the Constituent Assembly debated every aspects of privacy.Sundaram said some aspects of privacy can be traced to Article 21 (Right to Life and Personal Liberty) of the Constitution, but it cannot be held as a fundamental right.On the issue of data protection, he said that Article 300 of the Constitution dealing with common law rights may be taken recourse to in a case of a violation.Right to privacy was “statutorily” protected and there was no need to elevate it as a fundamental right to deal with any possible infringement, he said.He submitted that Article 21 refers to the term “personal liberty” and not “liberty or civil liberty” and the term personal liberty means physical liberty only.”Instead of expanding the scope of fundamental rights, you are saying that contract the scope of the fundamental right to liberty,” the bench said.Responding to the query of the bench that India was a signatory of an UN declaration, the senior lawyer said that an international obligation can be fulfilled by enacting a separate statute and there is no need of its inclusion as a fundamental right.Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and the Madhya Pradesh government, referred to various legislations including the Income Tax Act, the Right to Information Act and the Indian Telegraph Act and said that aspects of privacy has been protected under the statutes.Several legislations protect the aspect of privacy and being a common law right, it need not be elevated in the category of the fundamental rights, he argued.”Privacy is inherently a vague and subjective concept which is incapable of any precise definition and its contours cannot be conferred with a status of a fundamental right,” Mehta said.The legislature has been granting protection to the various aspects of “common law right to privacy” through statutes, he said.He also referred to the prevalent practices in various countries and said there were instances where privacy was not conferred the status of a constitutional right.Referring to the Aadhaar scheme, he said that even the State cannot track the activities of an individual by using the Aadhaar number and moreover, there are enough safeguards provided in the Act to protect personal information.Another senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for the Gujarat government, said that he did not take the “extreme position” that privacy did not fall under any of the fundamental rights.He, however, said that facets of privacy can be traced to Article 21.The arguments would continue tomorrow in the apex court which said that it might reserve the verdict in the matter.

Stop wasting time, no vacancy for PM post till 2024: Paswan to

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Union Minister and LJP president Ram Vilas Paswan today took a dig at the opposition parties over their attempts at unity, saying they should not waste their time as there is no vacancy for the prime minister’s post till 2024. Briefing reporters following his party’s national executive meeting on April 29 and 30 in Dadra and Nagar Haveli, he heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “pro-Dalit” measures. Paswan also expressed confidence that Modi would remain in charge till 2024. The National Executive of LJP also demanded an amendment to be made in the Constitution to implement immediate reservation in promotion. Keeping in view, the continued lack of government jobs, the party also demanded the early implementation of reservation in the private sector, Paswan said. The party also adopted a resolution to make one crore new members throughout the country during a membership drive from August 15 to January 26. He compared his former colleagues-turned-rivals, who are now in different parties, to an orange fruit which looks whole from the outside but is divided inside. “People like Nitish Kumar (JD-U), Mulayam Singh Yadav (Samajwadi Party), Lalu Prasad (RJD) can never be one. They should stop wasting their time in looking for a prime ministerial candidate. There is no vacancy,” he said. The next Lok Sabha elections are due in 2019 and the BJP- led NDA is in a buoyant mood following its massive win in Uttar Pradesh assembly polls. Paswan raked up corruption allegations against Prasad and his two sons, both ministers in the Nitish Kumar government, and said the JD(U) chief is troubled over this. His party, he said, is also keen on the passage of the Women’s Reservation Bill, which mandates 33 per cent quota for women in Parliament, with separate reservation of SCs, STs and OBCs within it. “All parties are ready for this,” he said. The LJP also favours simultaneous Lok Sabha and assembly polls and they should be funded by states, he added. Paswan repeated his party’s demands, including quota in private jobs and reservation for Dalits, minorities, backward and tribal students in private schools. He also pithed for starting Indian Judicial Service on the lines of IAS to recruit judges with quota provisions. Lauding Modi for promoting places associated with Dalit icon B R Ambedkar, he said his last speech delivered in the Constituent Assembly be included in school syllabi. Ambedkar should also be given a Nobel award, he said. The honour is generally not bestowed posthumously. His party has sought free land for landless people for residential purpose and clean water for every citizen, he said. The LJP resolution demanded that all villages with 20 per cent and more population of Dalits be brought under the Pradhan Mantri Adarsh Gramin Yojna for their fast development. The consumer affairs minister also clarified that he never asked restaurants to fix the portion of foods they give to consumers but only wanted them to inform diners about the quantity of food they are offering at a fixed price. Consumers have a right to know, he said. On reservation, he said Modi has insisted that it can never be removed and also demanded 15 per cent quota for the poor from general castes.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
