Sachin Pilot calls Vasundhara Raje sops poll gimmick

Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee chief Sachin Pilot on Tuesday took a jibe on Chief minister Vasundhara Raje touring to the bypoll-bound constituencies where she is showering sops and making new announcements. Terming it a poll effect, PCC chief blamed the government for not paying heed to the concerns of common man in its past four-year rule.Pilot made the scathing attack on Raje in Ajmer on Tuesday where he is campaigning extensively ahead of the bypoll. Focusing on rural belt, he visited more than a dozen gram panchayats, including Kumharia Bandanwada, Padanga, Satwadia, Jamola and held dialogue with rural folks.Addressing separate gatherings during his visit, Pilot attacked the government. “The Chief Minister has never taken care of this area in the past four years. As polls are nearing she is making populist announcements to allure people. She declares to open a college somewhere and assures to make roads and bridges at some other place, but the truth is people of the state have been deprived of basic amenities in the BJP’s rule”.Citing example of the government’s insensitivity, Pilot narrated plight of farmers and poor sections of the society. “Farmers are committing suicides due to debt, and in the CM’s constituency (Jhalarapatan) a farmer died due to severe cold while coming to his field for irrigation purpose at night . The government has deceived farmers as it had promised to provide electricity in the day time to the farmers, but even after four years this promise has not been fulfilled,” said Pilot, adding that government is privatising education and health sector which the Congress will oppose.

Cong fields Karan Singh Yadav from Alwar LS seat

The Congress has declared senior leader Karan Singh Yadav as its candidate for the bypolls to Alwar parliamentary seat. The decision was taken at a meeting held in Delhi on Sunday.Rajasthan in-charge Avinash Pandey, PCC chief Sachin Pilot, co-incharge Devendra Yadav, AICC secretary Zuber Khan, former minister Bhanwar Jitendra Singh and Alway Congress president Tikaram Julie were present. Around 30 party functionaries and persons who contested on the Congress ticket in last assembly elections were part of the deliberation meeting held at Pilot’s home.Rajasthan in-charge Avinash Pandey communicated to them that Rahul Gandhi wished that Jitendra Singh did not fight elections, instead play a larger role in the functioning of the party in the crucial year before Lok Sabha polls. Pandey then proposed senior local leader Dr Karan Singh’s name as candidate.While there has been no official declaration of the candidature, the state Congress has released a statement about the decision.Dr Karan Singh is a senior cardiologist and is a two time MLA and one-time MP from Alwar. He has held the post of the national president of the Yadav Samaj and enjoys immense respect and goodwill in the area.By selecting Yadav, Congress hopes to cash on several factors. Most importantly it hopes to dig a huge chunk into the dominant Yadav vote bank of Alwar. It is also banking on the sizeable Meo and Meena vote bank. “We hope to use our senior leader Zuber Khan, former MLA from Ramgarh, to consolidate the Meo vote in favour of Congress. The Meena vote has been with us even during Modi wave. The Congress had a lead of around 40 thousand in the Meena belt of Rajgarh in 2014,” said a senior Congressman who did not wish to be named.Another Congress leader added, “There was demand from party rank that Bhanwar Jitendra be fielded. But the party leadership is not keen on fielding either Bhanwar Jitendra or Sachin Pilot from Alwar and Ajmer respectively. They felt it would be a tactical mistake as both have a larger role to play in the forthcoming state elections.”

Jaipur local polls land in Cong’s lap

Even as the euphoria of the Gujarat Assembly election results is settling, the Rajasthan BJP has been dealt a reality check in the form of local body polls that were swept by Congress.The four district council (zila parishad) seats at Banswara, Bhilwara, Jalore and Karauli were all won by the Congress with decent margins. Of the 27 panchayat samiti members, 16 went into the Congress kitty, while the BJP could only bag 10. Out of 14 urban local body seats, 7 were bagged by the Congress and 6 by BJP.Rajasthan PCC chief Sachin Pilot termed the results as a “moral defeat” of the “corrupt” Vasundhara Raje government. “The BJP government in Rajasthan has not worked to the aspirations of the people. There is widespread corruption, unemployment and inflation under this regime. The government is pretending to hold Jan Sunvais just to get through the bypolls. Over the last four years, the Congress has worked consistently as an opposition and raised the issues of the public. Under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, Congress will ensure BJP’s defeat,” said Pilot.The frontal attack has not only put the ruling BJP in a defensive position, but also made it concerned about the forthcoming bypolls. Two parliamentary and one Assembly seat have fallen vacant due to the demise of members, and the BJP is now concerned about its poll prospects at the fag end of this government’s tenure. It has also raised doubts about the party’s ability to retain the three seats.

Gujarat ki goonj Rajasthan mein..

Gujarat touches 6 districts in Rajasthan. But it’s poll results will have impact on the entire state. A slim win in Modi’s bastion has sent warning bells ringing for BJP in Rajasthan. As the Raje government enters into the fifth year, Congress, post ‘moral victory’ in Gujarat, will go all out to oust the ruling party.Raje, on the other hand, has a tough task to counter anti incumbency factor while setting off on last minute development work for the public. Her immediate challenge is to win three byelections – one for assembly and the other two for parliament- which would disturb the tempo of Congress after its fighting performance in Gujarat.“If she is able to register wins in these elections, Congress will lose the edge which it has got after Gujarat elections. Also, it will send a message to high command that Raje holds the key for BJP in Rajasthan,” said a senior BJP leader.After facing tough fight in Gujarat, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah may change their strategy in coming state polls. They are said to keep complete control over ticket distribution in elections.“Now the duo may consider feedback of chief ministers and party chiefs of respective states in assembly elections lined up in 2018. This imminent flexibility may work well for BJP,” he said.For Congress, it is the golden chance to revive its fortune. The growing confidence and stature of Rahul Gandhi will imbibe confidence in his close aide Sachin Pilot also. After Ashok Gehlot proving his mettle in Gujarat elections, it is now up to Pilot to outsmart the strategies of the former chief minister, which foxed BJP in Gujarat.“Gujarat victory is morale booster for Congress, but Pilot will be under pressure. He is yet to showcase his leadership capabilities. With Gehlot winning crucial brownie points from Congress President, victory in by elections is the least Pilot needs to prove his point,” said a Congress leader.

Yunus Khan, Sachin Pilot slug it out

It is battle royale the Bollywood style between a minister and a party chief. Very much like the famous dialogue by actor Rajkumar from the blockbuster Saudagar where he says, “Hum tumhe marenge, jaroor marenge, lekin wakt bhi hamara hoga, bandook bhi hamari hogi, aur goli bhi hamari hogi”, transport and PWD minister Yunus Khan has challenged PCC chief Sachin Pilot saying, “Mein jawab dunga, figures ke sath jawab dunga, jagah bhi tumhari hogi aur time bhi tumhra hoga” (I will answer every question of yours; with data and figures. The place for debate will be chosen by you and also the time.)The war of words started when Pilot rubbished the claims made by Khan about the achievements of his department.Pilot had issued a press release and questioned the claims made by Yunus Khan. He had accused Khan of making false claims and selling off land belonging to the transport department. Khan called an urgent press meet at his office in the Secretariat on Monday and thew an open challenge at the PCC chief. He said he was ready to debate with Pilot on the issue. “Even if the PCC calls me to Indira Gandhi Bhawan, the PCC headquarters, I will willingly go there too for the debate.”His tirade knew no end. “I will provide figures of achievements by the BJP governments from 2003 to 2008 and from 2013 to 2017. These figures also will also expose the reality of the 10-year period of Gehlot’s government,” said Khan.

Gujarat elections 2017: Cong leader Sachin Pilot seeks White Paper on BJP’s 22-year-rule

Addressing the media on Wednesday, Rajasthan Congress president Sachin Pilot asked the BJP government to issue a white paper stating the works they have done over the last 22 years in Gujarat and three years at the Centre.”Let’s discuss the works that BJP has done. There are inflation, economic recession, demonetisation, wrong GST which were imposed. The BJP must accept their mistakes. The party promised to construct 50 lakh houses in Gujarat, but they have hardly constructed 4 lakh,” said Pilot.”Everything is possible if you have the will. There is arrogance in BJP. Congress has been in politics in this country since last 130 years. We have never compromised with principles. To gain power, BJP has made many compromises,” alleged Pilot.”We are not here to just to blame BJP for their ills. People are seeing it. We have made a structure to have a better government model in Gujarat. A better alternative governance model in all areas could be whether its labour reforms, education, agriculture, sanitation, health care, urban development, farm loans,” said Pilot.”We have got widespread holistic frameworks of how to develop Gujarat. And the Gujarat model that BJP claimed is very backward in all the social aspects. There is dissatisfaction in every class and they agree upon what Rahul Gandhi is saying. Propaganda, marketing or whatever claimed development has done for few selected people only,” he said.CONG FURYIt is a known fact that CM holds no power. Everybody knows who controls the politics, and when there is no accountability, no transparency then how people can trust the leadership?” Pilot asked.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Umar Khan’s body was handed over to his relatives after post-mortem on Wednesday evening. Former Congress legislator Zahida Khan was also present during the time and has claimed that a strategy will be made after burial of the deceased in his ancestral village.It is believed that the family agreed to post-mortem after the police found about the deceased’s alleged involvement in cow smuggling activities.However, some organisations have demanded monetary compensation and a government job to next of kin of the victim. PUCL in a statement released on Wednesday alleged that the police have tried to cover up another case of cow vigilantism by presenting the entire incident as a fight between two criminal groups.It also alleged that the government has failed to provide security to dairy farmers and given the cow vigilantes a free hand.‘Crime rate down’…Home minister Gulab Chand Kataria on Wednesday claimed that the crime rate in the state has come down. He said that the police department would corroborate with IT students to check cyber crime. On the issue of the religious freedom bill, he said the bill was passed by the BJP government but remained with the then governor. After some amendments, the bill was again sent to the governor….‘Pilot counters’Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot on Wednesday accused the BJP-led governments in his state and Gujarat of shying away from their responsibility to take action against cow vigilantes and said such elements were now terrorising the people. Speaking about killing of Umar Khan allegedly by cow vigilantes, Pilot said that CM Raje was in that district when the incident took place.

Cong to have more ‘offices’ at state

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The state congress committee may soon add more co-opted members. The All India Congress Committee has reportedly increased the permitted quota of such members from 15 per cent to 20 per cent. Thus permitted scope for adding 24 new co-opted members.The assumptions gained further pace following visit of senior party leader Kewal Singh Dhillon to party state office at Jaipur. Here Dhillon reportedly had a discussion with party state president Sachin Pilot.According to sources the recent announced list of 56 PCC co-opted members has left many party activists disgruntled for being left out. The discontent on the recent list has reached to the AICC, some of them have even alleged Sachin Pilot of neglecting party workers considered close to the rival camps within the party. The arrival of Dhillon was to pacify these groups and seek for remedy. The party leaders at the state, however, denied of any discontent among the party and refrained to comment on the issue.After the five per cent increase permitted the PCC will be able to add 24 more people to the list. Allowing it to have scope to adjust more individual and caste base equation.

Sachin Pilot set to contest Ajmer bypoll

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>PCC chief Sachin Pilot is likely to contest from Ajmer in by-polls. Pilot gave indication after a meeting of state congress leaders in Delhi.

Party in politics: Ashok Gehlot-Rahul Gandhi tango

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>It takes two to tango, and what a sight it was to see the somber staid former chief minister of Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot let down his hair and join Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in an inpromptu dance with tribals of Gujarat. They were in Bodeli, Chota Udepur as part of the Navsarjan Yatra. The video was tweeted by Gehlot and went viral on social media.Gehlot is the typical tight lipped traditional politician who never lets go of his ‘correct’ public persona. Over three decades in politics, he has never been seen to let down his hair or show his lighter. But Tuesday evening was different; it was a bashful Gehlot who joined the tribal dancers with hesitant steps. The characteristic switch of ingrained habits was effected when none other than Rahul Gandhi, who held Gehlot by the hand and pulled him along as he (Rahul) himself joined the dancers. Gehlot played the traditional tambourine and tried to match steps with the deft Rahul Gandhi; who was light on his feet. The awkwardness was visible, but living up to his nature of a fast learner and adapter Gehlot was quite comfortable within a short while. The video went viral on social media and Gehlot tweeted, “Some amazing moments with Rahul ji during the local tribal dance at Bodeli, Chhota Udepur,” were evidence of his own amazement. The easy camradiere was obvious between Rahul and Gehlot as they smiled and laughed and even stood close with their arms around each other’s waist. This could spell trouble for PCC chief Sachin Pilot as Gehlot is a shrewd and seasoned politician. He has always been a Sonia loyalist and could never establish the kind of rappot with Rahul that is being seen in Gujarat.In Rajasthan over the last three years, Sachin has been considered as the natural claimant to the chief minister chair, in case Congress wins the next year assembly polls, simply because of his closeness to Rahul Gandhi. But now, this new found friendship turns it into a battle of who will be first among equals.GEHLOT ‘MOVES’Gehlot is traditional politician who never lets go of his ‘correct’ public persona

Kishangarh airport gets a ticket to fly

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Kishangarh Airport was inaugurated on Wednesday by chief minister Vasundhara Raje and minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha. Addressing the people on the occasion, Raje termed it an historic day and said that the dream she had seen in her last tenure has now become reality. She said the wait of the people of Ajmer for an airport has been realised after 57 years. She thanked Prime minister Narendra Modi and Sinha for this. Raje, in a direct reference to the then prime minister Man Mohan Singh, said that the people who were trying to credit for this had just laid the foundation stone in 2013 and no work was done thereafter. Speaking on the occasion, Sinha said that very soon flight for Delhi will be started from Kishangarh. Giving a political tone to his speech, Sinha said that there are many who just talk or make promises but “we (BJP) carry the work of development on ground”. He said that with the help of scheme of UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) a common man is now able to travel in aeroplane . Sinha mentioned that under the leadership of Modi, in one year, 30 airports were inaugurated across the country . In the state too, Bikaner, Kota, and Jaisalmer got connected by air and now Kishangarh is added to the list. Notably, now, it’s expected that the regular flights will start from Kishangarh airport within 10 days.. Sources informed that Zoom Air and Spicejet were planning to start their services from Kishangarh. It’s expected that in coming days, Kishangarh will be connected with Mumbai, Delhi , Kolkata , Chennai and Hyderabad.Meanwhile, after returning from Mishandle, Sinha inspected the terminal of Jaipur Airport . Reacting to this, PCC chief Sachin Pilot said that all clearances relating to Kishangarh airport were done when the congress was in power. In past four years of Raje rule there was no effort made to operate flights from the airport. As the elections are nearing, the CM is just trying to reap political mileage by takeing the credit for the airport, Pilot added.

Cong asks Modi to sack Shah over his son’s business report

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Seeking a commission of two sitting judges of the Supreme Court to probe the allegations of financial irregularities reported against a company owned by Jay Shah, son of BJP national president Amit Shah, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala has demanded the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remove Shah from party post, or seek his resignation taking moral high ground.“This is a tough call for Modi whether he chooses friend Shah or takes moral high ground to order a probe by a two-member commission of SC judges into the allegation made against his son, Jay,” said Surjewala during a press conference in Jaipur on Monday.“I demand the PM to seek resignation of Shah or remove him from the post without any delay,” Surjewala said referring to a media report in which Shah’s son company was reported to have earned 16,000 times profit in a year. The report had alleged that the turnover of Temple Enterprise Private Ltd, a company in which Jay Shah was a director, rose 16,000 times from Rs 15,000 in 2014-15 to Rs 80.5 crore in 2015-16. It also said that the company received unsecured loans as well.“What magic wand was used to earn so much profit in a company which was running in huge loss in 2012-13 and 20014-15. Why they are shying away from probe if there’s nothing wrong? There is no smoke without fire. The country was waiting for development… but ‘Jai ka Vikas ho gaya’. The most surprising incident happened when the cabinet minister Piyush Goyal appeared to defend Jay who is not an officer-bearer of the party or the government,” said Surjewala, saying there must be transparency and accountability.Meanwhile, PPC chief Sachin Pilot during the conference accused the Raje government of waiting for the state assembly election due next year to announce the loan waiver. “CM is waiting for the state assembly election to announce the waiver. Farmers of the state will not be able to wait for 12 months. She should waive off loans of farmers immediately,” he told reporters at a joint press with Surjewala. Pilot also accused Raje of dividing the society by meeting representatives of different castes separately during her tour of the state. “It leaves a negative impact in the society.”

Sachin Pilot embarks on nyay yatra in farmers’ interest

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Slamming the Vasundhara Raje government for its anti-farmer and anti-people policies, PCC chief Sachin Pilot on Tuesday accused the government of ignoring the interests of farmers and exploiting them.Pilot was addressing media in Baran before he kicked off his 100km long four-day Kisan Nyay Yatra from Baran that will conclude on October 6 in Jhalawar, the home constituency of the CM. Thousands of party workers joined Pilot in the yatra.At least 75 farmers have committed suicide in the state so far, Pilot claimed, adding that the government is working just for the benefit the rich and industrialists. The PCC chief also raised questions on the move of setting up a committee to decide over waiving off loans to farmers. ‘No such committee has been formed in any of the states, but Rajasthan government has and astonishingly there is no representation from farmers’ side or the Opposition,” Pilot pointed out.Coming down hard on GST on farmers’ equipment, the PCC chief said that it is unjust as the rich and industrialists have been excluded from GST slab and all this has been done without forming any committee. Prices of everything like oil, petrol, electricity, fertilisers and seeds are shooting up and farmers are getting no benefit of their produce, Pilot added. Pilot rebuked the government for conniving with crop procurement agency and middlemen just after announcement of Minimum Support Price (MSP) on purchase of any crop from the farmers. ‘As a result, the procurement agency keeps the farmers waiting for three to four days and eventually the farmers have to sell their yield to middlemen at low price,’ Pilot said.Pilot assured the distressed farmers that the Congress through Kisan Nyay Yatra would force the government to waive off farmers’ loan.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Birthdays are no more non-eventful days of just getting a day older and supposedly wiser for Rajasthan politicians. It’s a day to showcase their might and popularity before the media and voters, and rivals outside and within the party.No wonder, they are increasingly organising large-scale birthday celebrations, which can undoubtedly be termed as power shows aimed at sending out political messages.

Verbal battle over nature’s fury begins

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>While people in flood affected districts are battling with the fury of nature, political leaders are busy with a bitter battle of words. The one to up the ante in the very verbose Minister of Rural Development Rajendra Rathore and in the firing line is the state Congress chief Sachin Pilot.Rathore has come out heavily on Pilot and accused him of politicising the floods. He issued a statement accusing Pilot of waking up from slumber 198 hours (almost eight days) after the floods hit the state. “When Pilot reached to the victims they asked him when he was so late in meeting them. This is the reason why he is making these false allegation against the government, saying that government did not provide relief to the victims in the initial 48 hours after the floods,” read his statement. The truth of the matter is that the chief minister did not waste even 48 seconds in initiating relief works, Rathore’s statement read. Sachin Pilot along with leader of opposition Rameshwar Dudi is on a two day visit to flood affected districts. Pilot had on Monday visited several affected areas and met the people. He had targeted the state government for not doing enough for the flood affected. He had demanded that state government speed up the relief process.Taking the opposition by the horns, Rathore went on accuse them of not contributing to relief fund. “Not a single penny was given by the leaders of Congress. Nor did they take part in the relief works in the areas worst affected by the flood.They have been too late in reacting to the situation and so they are making baseless statement to cover up,” said the minister. He added that the chief minister Vasundhara Raje had resonded on the very first day, asked ministers in charge of districts to camp in the affected areas. “She also went in the flood affected areas and personally monitored the rescue and relief works. It was due to her immediate response that 1309 persons have been rescued in the operations so far,” said Rathore.Incidentally, Rathore is not the first minister to spring to the government’s defense post Pilot’s statement. Health minister Kalicharan too had questioned the Congress about the whereabouts of Congress MLAs from Gujarat while the state suffered similar calamity.

Pilot demands relief from Centre for flood-hit parts of Raj

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot today wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking relief package from the Centre for the people in flood-hit parts of the state. Pilot apprised Modi about the floods in Jalore, Pali, Sirohi and Barmer districts. He accused the state government for not being able to help the people hit by the deluge and the slow paced rescue and relief measures and sought Centre’s assistance. He claimed that 12 persons have died so far in the flood-hit areas and the state government has not given any compensation to the aggrieved families. Pilot in his letter urged the prime minister to announce a relief package for Rajasthan Rs 500 crore similar to what has been to given to flood-hit Gujarat. He also expressed concern over the rain-related death of bovines due to infection in government and private cow sheds. “I have got to know about 536 bovines death in Pathmera gaushalas and several others are on death bed. The BJP government talks a lot about cow protection but the talks are far from reality. The state government should take immediate steps to save bovines,” Pilot said in the letter.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Farmers driven to commit suicide, protesters getting killed:

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot has said it is unfortunate that farmers are committing suicide in an agriculture-dominated country. At a farmers’ rally in Etawa town in Kota district, he blamed the agricultural policies of the BJP governments at the Centre and in Rajasthan for the “worst” state of cultivators. “Those who raise their voice are silenced with a gunshot,” he said, apparently referring to the killing of five persons in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district during a farmers’ agitation. The condition at present is so bad that a farmer is committing suicide every 41 minutes, the Rajasthan Congress chief claimed. The BJP government has given the slogan of “sabka saath, sabka vikas” but has done nothing for farmers and agricultural growth. Cultivators are ending their lives due to the bad state of the agriculture sector, Pilot said. He alleged that the BJP government considers farmers just a vote bank.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Madhya Pradesh: Amid farmers’ stir, state Agriculture Minister says impossible to give loan waiver

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Amid raging protests by farmers spiralling across Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district, state Agriculture Minister Gauri Shankar Bisen on Saturday categorically refused to provide any relief, saying the government has already been providing interest free loans and hence there’s no need for a waiver.”There is no chance of a loan waiver because when I became the minister in 2008, I promised to provide loans at three percent. And next year we provided loans at one percent interest and thereafter loans were distributed at zero percent. When we did not impose any interests on loan, how can it be waived off” I am never in favour of complete loan waiver. Not then, not now,” Bisen told ANI.He further said that the farming sector under the leadership of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has been growing well.
ALSO READ MP farmers agitation: Why is PM silent over farmer killings, asks Sachin Pilot”With the support of farmers, our government achieved 20 percent growth rate in the agriculture sector and the same has been maintained for the last five years,” Bisen added.The Minister accused the Congress Party for using the farmers’ agitation for political gains.”The farmers of the state are being misguided by the Congress Party. They are trying to add fuel to the fire. The party is using this agitation for their political gain,” he said.Meanwhile, Chouhan has begun an indefinite hunger strike “for peace” at the Dussera Maidan to restore the prevailing tense situation.On Thursday, two companies of Rapid Action Force (RAF), comprising around 100 men, were deployed in violence-hit Mandsaur district.Farmers in Madhya Pradesh are demanding better prices for their produce and also a waiver on loan repayments.However the protest turned violent after five farmers were killed on June 6 in a police firing in Mandsaur.The violent protest has later spread to neighbouring districts of Neemuch, Indore, Khargone, Ujjain, Shahjanhanpur, Sehore, Raisen and Harda in the last few days.

Oppn parties teaming up for a coalition in 2019 polls: Pilot

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot today said that Opposition parties are working to collate as a united front to take on the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. “There is a coalition of Opposition parties happening now as everybody has started realising the need to work together against the BJP to present a formidable Opposition in the next general elections, to those who are very clever in talking but zero in showing results,” the Rajasthan Congress chief told reporters here. The former Union minister also took a dig at NDA coalition partner Shiv Sena and said that the Uddhav Thackeray-led party is often critical of the government policies in Maharashtra, especially on farmers, but never opts out of power. “The Shiv Sena speaks in two different languages at the Centre and in the state. If they are so concerned for the cause of farmers, why do they simply not give up power for their well-being ? Their selective and bizarre views towards the government’s policies which suit them has finally exposed the party,” he said. “They can only give empty threats and not opt out of power because they are a greedy lot. Their greediness is for everybody to see,” Pilot added.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Sachin Pilot flays BJP govt over law-and-order situation

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rajasthan’s Congress chief Sachin Pilot today alleged that the law-and-order situation — at both the national and state level — had deteriorated under the BJP’s rule and the recent Bulandshahr gangrape and murder was a stark reminder of it. Addressing a mass gathering in Rajasthan’s Sirohi district, Pilot said people were fed up with BJP’s governance. “The gangrape and murder in Bulandshahr has once again brought to fore the rising morale of anti-social elements under BJP’s rule,” he said. Armed robbers struck a group of eight people travelling to Bulandshahr in a vehicle on the Yamuna Expressway in the early hours yesterday, shooting dead a man and looting cash and jewellery. Four women, who were travelling in the car along with as many men, alleged that they were raped at gunpoint after they tried to resist the robbery bid. Pilot said that both the central government and the state government had failed to realise their electoral promises. “Government has failed to address internal and external security issues. People are insecure in their homes and jawans are sacrificing their life on borders,” Pilot said.

Cong launches campaign to expose ‘failure’ of Centre

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Congress today announced the launch of a nation-wide public campaign along with other like-minded forces in the next 24 months to expose the BJP-led government. Stating this at a press conference here, AICC incharge of communications Randeep Surjewala said the party led by Rahul Gandhi would expose the “failures” of the government before the public in every nook and corner of the country. To mark the completion of three years of the Modi government, the Congress young brigade today highlighted its “failures” on various counts including issues of dealing with the Pakistan and Kashmir policy, internal security, women safety and rising cases of rapes, atrocities on dalits, high petrol and diesel prices, besides generation of jobs. A power-point presentation was also made during the press conference that besides other things highlighted the “failures” of this government on bringing back black money, GST, Aadhaar, renaming of UPA schemes, Digital and Skill India and not addressing the problem of farm debt. “To expose the falsehood of the BJP, the Congress party in the next 24 months will launch an extensive country-wide public campaign after bringing all such like-minded and those forces troubled by this government,” Surjewala told reporters. Congress leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sachin Pilot, RPN Singh, Sushmita Dev and Divya Spandana also raised the issues of rising cases of intolerance in the country and of attempts being made to change the narrative rather than focusing on resolving public problems. Scindia said when this government came to power they kindled a lot of hope by selling the dream of bringing “achhe din” in the country, but in the last three years it “shattered people’s dreams”. “There is an environment of intolerance prevailing in the country. If anybody discusses it, they are termed as anti- national. “This government decides what the people should eat, learn and wear. It tries to push its policies based on a regimented ‘soch vichar’ (ideological approach),” he said. Pilot said the Congress would present a better alternative model of governance before the people of the country and will expose the BJP on its “failure to fulfil the lofty promises made before coming to power”. “We will prepare a blueprint of an alternative model of governance and not by selling lies to the people,” he said. The Congress screened a video entitled “Teen saal barbaad, lipapoti sarkar” during the press conference. The Congress leaders also raised the issue of senior functionaries of the government trying to help fugitives like Vijaya Mallya and Lalit Modi escape the country.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Pilot slams govt claims on declaring Rajasthan villages ODF

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot today questioned the Centre’s claims in declaring panchayats and villages open defecation free (ODF), saying poor and helpless people are being threatened in the name of constructing toilets. He said innocent villagers are being booked under IPC sections, their rations are being stopped and they are forced to take loans from open market to construct toilets. “To take credit in declaring villages ODF, government is strangulating poor people. Several villages have been declared ODF, however, the groundwork is far from the picture being presented by the government,” Pilot said in a press conference here on Panchayati Raj Day. He said Congress party workers had visited 40 villages of 11 districts and took 1,070 families on record. “We support the movement and want that people get aware about cleanliness but despite crores of rupees being spent under the scheme, its benefits are far from reaching the villages. In Ajmer alone, 90,000 people constructed toilets but have not received Rs 12,000 compensation provided under the scheme. Actual cost of constructing toilet is above Rs 20,000,” he added. Pilot said that those working under the pressure of the government will face strict action, if Congress comes into power. He demanded that government stop harassing people for constructing toilets by releasing dictatorial orders of stopping pension, ration and implement the scheme with transparency and present the real picture. “Statements and announcement of BJP government are different from its action. They boast about their work in advertisements but truth is bitter on thew ground. We will keep on exposing corruption and poor implementation of the government and present it before the people,” Pilot said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
