Kejriwal tries to quell speculation of rift with Vishwas, calls 'younger brother

Deccan Herald 4 hours 22 minutes ago

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today sought to quell speculation of a rift between him and Kumar Vishwas, days after the senior party leader differed with him over EVM tampering as the reason...
'Kumar is my younger brother'
Aam Aadmi Party national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal warned those who are showing that there is a rift between him and senior leader Kumar Vishwas and said they were enemies of the party.
Kejriwal says no rift with Kumar Vishwas
New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday denied any rift with senior leader Kumar Vishwas after an AAP MLA accused the latter of trying to break the party at the BJP's behest. Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan alleged that Kumar Vishwas was conspiring to break the party and had asked some legislators to join the BJP with an offer of Rs 30 crore each. This prompted Kejriwal to say that attempts were being made to create a rift between him and Kumar Vishwas, one of the founders of the AAP and a long-time friend of both Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia. Khan circulated a WhatsApp message saying Kumar Vishwas had called some AAP MLAs to his home with the monetary offer at the behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party. "Kumar Vishwas called some MLAS and asked them that he should be made the party convenor," said the legislator from Okhla in south Delhi. Kumar Vishwas gave them the second offer "to join the BJP which was ready to pay Rs 30 crore to each one of them. "I think all this is being done at the behest of the BJP," Khan said, adding four AAP MLAs had been tasked with arranging meetings of the party legislators with Kumar Vishwas. The four MLAs also held a meeting with an unnamed minister, Khan said, citing 10 unnamed MLAs who "revealed this to me". But Kejriwal tweeted that Kumar Vishwas was like "my younger brother". "Some people are trying to show that there is a gulf between us. These people are enemies of the party. They should mend their ways. Nobody can separate us." Khan confirmed to IANS that he had circulated the message because "Kumar Vishwas wants to usurp and break the AAP". In a TV interview on Friday, Kumar Vishwas said the party won't hesitate in taking a call on change in its leadership after its poor show in Delhi municipal polls. The AAP finished much behind the BJP in all three wings of the municipal corporation. The Congress finished at the bottom of the heap. He said blaming the EVMs entirely for its poll defeats was wrong as there was mistrust among people vis-a-vis the party.

Ban on red beacons aimed at ending VIP culture mindset: PM
The decision to get rid of red beacons is aimed at removing the VIP culture from the mindset of certain people, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today and added that the concept should be replaced with "EPI", meaning "Every Person is Important". A day before the government decision on red beacons comes into effect, he underlined that all the 125 crore people of the country have equal value and importance. "I did not know that people have so much contempt for the VIP culture before we took the decision recently banning use of red beacons on vehicles of ministers and others," he said in his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat. He said the red beacon had become a symbol of VIP culture which had creeped the mindset of those using it. "Experience shows that though the red beacon would be used atop a vehicle, gradually the VIP culture would go to the head of those using it and it would lead to a mindset of VIP culture. "Although the lal batti is gone now, nobody can claim that because of this, the VIP culture which has gone into the mindset would have also gone," Modi said. He said getting rid of red beacon was an administrative decision but efforts have to be made to remove the VIP culture from the mindset also. "If we all make concerted efforts jointly, this also can go (from the mindset)," he added. The Prime Minister said his governments concept of New India is that instead of VIP, importance to EPI culture should increase. "When I say EPI instead of VIP, the meaning is clear -- Every Person is Important. Every person has value and importance. If we recognise the importance of 123 crore citizens of the country, imagine the big strength that the country will have in fulfilling the grand dreams. We all have to do it together," he said.

Shillong: In one of the biggest achievements in Indian football history, unheralded Aizawl FC today lifted the I-League crown after they held Shillong Lajong 1-1 in a tense match here. Lajong went ahead in the ninth minute through A Dipanda but Aizawl equalised in the 67th minute through W Lalnunfela as the two sides split points in a highly-anticipated match at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Despite Mohun Bagan defeating Chennai City FC 2-1 in a simultaneous match in Kolkata, Aizawl ran away with the title to script a fairy-tale story. Aizawl ended the league on 37 points while Mohun Bagan finished second on 36. They have won the I-League title in their second season, becoming the first club from the Northeast to bag the title. It was, in fact, the Leicester moment for the Aizawl side as their fortunes turned around in just a matter of a year after they were on the verge of relegation from the I-League last season. Aizawl would not have at all played in the I-League this season as they finished eighth last year but after a few Goan sides pulled out of the countrys top-flight league, they got a lifeline to stay afloat.

Triple Talaq has no sanction in Shariat: Venkaiah Naidu
Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi 's appeal to not politicize the burning issue of Triple Talaq, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday echoed similar sentiments and asserted that the controversial practice has no sanction in Shariat. Addressing the press conference in Hyderabad, Naidu said, "Triple Talaq is a matter of right of equality and right of women to live with dignity. It should not be politicized. I appeal to all political parties to take a resolve to put an end to negative politics," The Union Minister also informed the people of the country that the historic Real Estate Act, 2016 comes into force from tomorrow on the occasion of labors day. "This is a landmark legislation becoming a reality nine years after regulation of real estate sector was first mooted in 2008," Naidu said. Prime Minister Modi yesterday appealed to the Muslim community to find a proper solution to end the controversial practice of triple talaq. Addressing the Basva festival, Prime Minister Modi told media, "I believe people from Muslim community would come up to solve the issue of triple talaq and act as a savior to the Muslim women in this crucial period."

You are not the Prime Minister of one religion and one community but the PM of this country. So, he should think that the country is first. Please don't politicize the issue which divides the country," Yaskhi said. Resonating similar views, the Samajwadi Party criticized the former saying that he should also speak up on other issues which are being faced by the Muslim women. "Prime Minister Modi should also focus on other problems of Muslim women. Muslim women are losing their husbands and son due to violence by Gau Rakshaks," said Azam Khan. -ANI

[India], Apr 30 (ANI): The Congress on Sunday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of politicising the triple talaq issue and urged the former not politicise such issues which can possibly divide the country.

Please don't politicise the issue which divides the country," Yaskhi said. Echoing similar views, Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D. Raja urged Prime Minister Modi to speak on larger issues keeping in view all religion and community. "Nobody should politicize this triple talaq issue. There are sections among Muslims who disapprove triple talaq who consider that it is not according to the Quran, they themselves admits it.
