BJP Stopped Water Flow To Delhi To Cause Water Crisis: Atishi

Accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party of hatching a fresh conspiracy, Delhi Minister and AAP leader Atishi on Wednesday said that the BJP stopped the Yamuna water supply to Delhi in its bid to target the ruling party by creating water crisis in the national capital.

While addressing a press conference in the national capital, the AAP leader said, “Ahead of the voting on May 25 (in Delhi), BJP has hatched a new conspiracy to target AAP and disturb the people of Delhi. Under this conspiracy, through its Haryana Government, the BJP has stopped the water flow to Delhi.”

“This has been done to disturb the people of Delhi and cause a water crisis here. Yamuna water supply to Delhi is being stopped. An investigation revealed that the Haryana Government is stopping the Yamuna water flow to Delhi,” she added.

The AAP leader further said that in the history of Delhi, this is the first time that the water level of Yamuna was recorded below 671 feet.

“This is the first time in Delhi that the water level of Yamuna was recorded at 670.9 feet, that is below 671 feet,” she said.

Atishi said that the ruling government in Delhi will soon write to the Haryana Government and if needed they’ll also move an urgent application before the court.

“I would like to alert the people of Delhi – don’t get lured into the conspiracy of BJP. I would also like to tell the BJP that you can’t fool the people of Delhi, they are going to give all 7 seats to INDIA Alliance this time. We will immediately write to the Haryana Government. If needed, we will also move an urgent application before the court. If no action is taken on our letter to the Haryana Government, we will approach the Supreme Court,” she said.

When asked about the measures taken to avoid a water crisis in the national capital, the AAP leader said, “The CEO of Delhi Jal Board has been ordered to immediately increase the number of water tankers within 24 Hours. It has also been directed to increase the functioning time of the borewell from 16 hours to 22 hours.” (ANI)

Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira

Cong Leader In Soup After Advocating for Himachal-Like Tenancy Law In Punjab

Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira’s alleged statement that people from Bihar will not be able to allowed to purchase property in Punjab has led to a political storm.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Congress at a public rally saying, “A Congress leader from Punjab who is close to the royal family of the party in Delhi has said that people from Bihar should be boycotted in Punjab. The RJD is together with them and asking for votes from you. People from Bihar should neither buy houses in Punjab nor Biharis should have any right in Punjab.”

“They (Congress) have such hatred for people in Bihar in their hearts. Has anyone from the Congress royal family said that such statements are wrong? Here the RJD has blocked their ears,” PM Modi said.

However, Khaira issued a statement saying that people from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh who come to Punjab are welcome to live a livelihood in the state but if they want to settle there permanently they need to follow conditions similar to those mentioned in the Himachal Pradesh Tenancy Act 1972.

“We welcome people from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh who come to Punjab and work. If any non-Punjabi wants to come here for livelihood and start his family, he is most welcome. But if they want to settle here permanently then they have to follow the conditions similar to those mentioned in Himachal Pradesh Tenancy Act 1972,” Khaira said in a video statement on Wednesday.

“I have this private member’s Bill to the Speaker of Punjab Vidhan Sabha on January 23. I stand by my statement,” he said.

In a post on ‘X’, Khaira said that the BJP is “twisting” his statement to incite the people of Bihar and has never mentioned “Biharis” in any of his speeches.

“I’m extremely saddened to watch the hate speech of @BJP4IndiaPm Modi twisting my statement to incite the people of Bihar during a rally today alleging that a @INCIndia leader from Punjab is asking to boycott Bihari’s working in Punjab,” Khaira said in a post on ‘X’.

Khaira said that he is advocating for a law in Punjab like Himachal Pradesh that bars outsiders from buying land

“To set the record straight firstly I never mentioned the word Bihari in any of my speeches nor did I mention boycotting them. I’m advocating a law like Himachal Pradesh that bars outsiders from buying land, becoming a voter or applying for govt jobs without clearing state conditions as if allowed randomly it’ll affect the identity of Himachali’s and upset their demographic situation,” the Congress leader said.

Khaira said that people outside of Punjab should fulfil conditions similar to the Himachal Pradesh Tenancy Act 1972.

“We have no objection if any non-Punjabi wants to earn a livelihood in Punjab but in case he wants to settle down permanently he should fulfil conditions similar to HP Tenancy Act 1972. Such a law is all the more important in Punjab as most of our govt jobs are being taken by people from Haryana, Delhi etc,” he said.

Distancing the party from Sukhpal Singh Khaira’s statement, the Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Legislative Assembly Partap Singh Bajwa said “Khaira’s views are his own.”

In a series of posts on ‘X’ Bajwa said, “The Congress Party reaffirms its commitment to inclusivity and democracy in response to recent remarks by Mr. Sukhpal Singh Khaira. Mr. Khaira’s views are his own. The Congress Party stands firm in upholding every citizen’s right to participate in the democratic process.”

“Our party’s ethos is centred on unity in diversity, safeguarding our nation’s cultural and social fabric. Let’s embrace inclusivity and respect for all as we work towards a stronger, more united India. It’s time to uphold our constitutional rights and build a harmonious society together,” Bajwa added.

UN Halts Food Distribution In Rafah Due To Lack Of Supplies, Insecurity

Amid high levels of hunger and acute shortage of food in Gaza, the United Nations has suspended food distribution in Rafah due to a lack of supplies and insecurity in the densely populated area, Voice of America (VOA) reported.

Stephane Dujarric, a UN spokesperson on Tuesday, said, the distribution centres of the World Food Program and UNRWA, the agency for Palestinian refugees, are inaccessible because of the ongoing military operation in Rafah.

Over 1 million people are facing high levels of hunger, the UN stated.

The Rafah crossing into Egypt, once the main entrance for aid, has been closed since May 6, and no aid trucks have crossed the US-built floating pier in two days, the UN said, VOA reported.

A World Food Programme (WFP) spokesperson said, “humanitarian operations in Gaza are near collapse.”

WFP Spokesperson Abeer Etefa warned that if food and other supplies don’t resume entering Gaza in “massive quantities, famine-like conditions will spread.”

Additionally, UNRWA stressed that its health centres have not received medical supplies in 10 days, however, its health care staff still conducts medical consultations at its centres, as reported by VOA.

Meanwhile, the head of the World Health Organization shared a post on X, stating that Al-Awda Hospital in northern Gaza has been “under siege since 19 May, with no one allowed to leave or enter.”

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus highlighted that 22 patients, their companions and 148 hospital staff “are still trapped inside.”

On Monday, the medical staff at al-Awda reported a sniper attack on the building. An artillery rocket hit the fifth floor where the administration office is located, but there were no injuries.

Following the attack, the WHO chief called for humanitarian access to the hospital and an immediate ceasefire, VOA reported.

A senior Washington administration official on Tuesday said that there are now multiple crossing points for aid to come into Gaza, including through the humanitarian sea corridor where aid is inspected in Cyprus and delivered straight to the Israeli port of Ashdod without additional inspection there.

“We’re looking to flood in (aid) as much as possible. And then it is up to a number of groups inside Gaza to do the distribution in various ways,” the official said.

He further noted the need to coordinate deconfliction and convoys encountering armed elements that “self-distribute” humanitarian assistance.

Israeli forces carried out a deadly raid on Tuesday in the occupied West Bank and fought Hamas terrorists in the southern Gaza Strip, reported VOA.

The Israeli ground troops and aircraft were battling Rafah, while troops also fought terrorists in central and northern Gaza, killing at least five people in Rafah. (ANI)

BJP Leaders Will Go To Jail After June 4 For Electoral Bond Scam: Atishi

Delhi Minister and AAP leader Atishi said on Tuesday that after June 4, when the INDIA bloc will form the government, the Electoral Bond scam will be investigated, in which not only BJP leaders but also ED, CBI and IT officers will go to jail.

Addressing a press conference, Atishi said, “I want to clearly tell the BJP that now your end is near. Now the people of the country have made up their minds. After June 4, when the INDIA bloc forms the government, the country’s biggest Electoral bond scam will be investigated in which not only BJP leaders will go to jail but ED, CBI and IT officers will also go to jail because they are also involved in it.”

Further, responding to the Delhi High Court’s decision to refuse to grant bail to jailed AAP leader Manish Sisodia today, Atishi said that they disagree with the decision as the entire liquor scam is a political conspiracy of the BJP.

“We respect the High Court but we respectfully disagree with this decision of the court. Because this entire so-called liquor scam is a political conspiracy of BJP. This conspiracy was hatched when BJP was unable to defeat AAP in the electoral arena and ED and CBI were used,” she said.

“The investigation into this scam is going on for more than two years. More than 500 ED and CBI officers are engaged in its investigation. More than a thousand raids have taken place and 8 charge sheets have been filed but till now not even 1 rupee has been recovered from any AAP leader. What kind of scam is this?” Atishi added.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed the bail petitions moved by Manish Sisodia, Aam Aadmi Party leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi in liquor policy cases.

Sisodia had sought bail in cases being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Sisodia has been in custody since February 26, 2023, after arrest by the CBI. Thereafter, he was arrested by the ED.

The bench of Justice Swarna Kanta Sharma pronounced the order and said the case at hand is of grave misuse of power and aim was to create policy that is beneficial to some and kickbacks could come in.

The Court had allowed Manish Sisodia to meet his ailing wife under custody once in a week.

Sisodia has been in custody since February 26, 2023, after arrest by the CBI. Thereafter, he was arrested by the ED. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and BRS Leader K Kavitha were also arrested in the excise policy case. (ANI)

Mehbooba Mufti

People Being Threatened To Vote For Particular Candidates: Mehbooba

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti alleged on Tuesday that some groups are trying to “threaten” and pressuring people to vote for some particular candidates in the Lok Sabha elections.

She alleged that one group is threatening people through fatwas (religious rulings) while the other group is threatening in the name of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Mufti said, “I met a lot of delegation here in Rajouri…I have observed that the situation that has been created is very scary. Religious Fatwas are being issued by one group, that if you don’t vote for a particular candidate you will go to hell.”

“While the other group is blackmailing people in the name of BJP…we heard several officers are being threatened to vote for a particular candidate or else they would be transferred…but even BJP knows the candidates, they are seeking votes for, will have their deposits seized,” she added.

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief is contesting from the Anantnag-Rajouri constituency.

Polling on the seat will be held on May 25. The counting of votes is scheduled for June 4.

The former CM also said that there is a huge distress due to high youth unemployment in the UT.

“There are many educated unemployed youth. The unemployment rate is 35 per cent…they were hyping about abrogation of Article 370. But, there has been no rise in the scale of recruitment post that,” she added.

Notably, despite PDP being part of the INDIA bloc, the National Conference nominated Mian Altaf Ahmad from the seat against Mehbooba Mufti.

This is the first general election in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019.

Earlier on Sunday, the former J-K CM appealed to the Kashmiri Pandit community to vote for her in the Lok Sabha elections, affirming that she has an idea about the ‘trauma’ Kashmiri Pandit community had to face in the early 1990 insurgency that led to their mass exodus from the valley.

She said that her father, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, always ensured that the relationship between majority and minority communities must be maintained in Jammu and Kashmir.

“I understand your pain. I have an idea of how older people might feel when they miss Kashmir. The beginning of the pain was from our house. We also have faced a lot. My father thought that the relationship between majority and minority must be maintained. This is the reason he made a lot of effort when he became the CM. I was raised in Kashmiri Pandits’ homes. I understand how important it is for all of us to live together,” Mufti said at a public meeting with Kashmiri Pandits community

“I know the trauma of Kashmiri Pandits, as they want to come back to their homeland. Mufti Sahab was very saddened by what happened to Kashmiri pandits,” she added. (ANI)

Manish Sisodia

Delhi HC Refuses To Grant Bail To Sisodia Bail

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed the bail petitions moved by Manish Sisodia, Aam Aadmi Party leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi in liquor policy cases.

Sisodia had sought bail in cases being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Sisodia has been in custody since February 26, 2023, after arrest by the CBI. Thereafter, he was arrested by the ED.

The bench of Justice Swarna Kanta Sharma pronounced the order and said the case at hand is of grave misuse of power and aim was to create policy that is beneficial to some and kickbacks could come in.

Meanwhile the Court had allowed to continue to meet Manish Sisodia to meet his ailing wife under custody once in a week.

Corruption in this case originated with Applicant’s desire to design a policy that is beneficial to some individuals.

Court also observed that Applicant Manish Sisodia had invovled himself in the destruction of evidence and hence the possibility of tampering of evidence cannot be ruled out. He held 18 portfolios and was also a senior leader of AAP and Deputy CM, hence, he is very powerful.

Prosecution has made out a prima facie case of money laundering.case involves great misuse of power by the applicant Manish Sisodia. This deceptive Act was a calculative move by him. Tempering can’t be ruled out if Manish Sisodia is out on bail. Many crucial witnesses in the case are public servants and possibility of influencing can’t be ruled out, said the court.

Earlier, appearing of Manish Sisodia, Senior Advocates Mohit Mathur and Dayan Krishnan referred Supreme Judgement stating that accused can’t be incarcerated prolonged and the right to speedy Trial is the fundamental right. Lawyers also raised questions over ED’s conduct in delaying the trial.

On April 30, the Rouse Avenue Court had dismissed the bail petitions of Sisodia for the second time in the case and said, “…This court is not inclined to admit the Applicant to Bail, either regular or interim, at this stage. The application under consideration is accordingly dismissed,”

Trial Court judge said, “It is apparent that the Applicant individually, and along with different accused have been filing one or the other application/making oral submissions frequently, some of them frivolous, that too on a piecemeal basis, apparently as a concerted effort for accomplishing the shared purpose of causing delay in the matter.”

The court also added that the period of incarceration of Benoy Babu and that of the applicant (Manish Sisodia) cannot be equated, particularly in view of the findings in the preceding paragraphs of this order that the applicant himself has attributed to the slow pace of the proceedings of the case.

Sisodia has been in custody since February 26, 2023, after arrest by the CBI. Thereafter, he was arrested by the ED. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and BRS Leader K Kavitha were also arrested in the excise policy case.

The ED and the CBI had alleged that irregularities were committed while modifying the excise policy, undue favours were extended to licence holders, the licence fee was waived or reduced and the L-1 licence was extended without the competent authority’s approval.

The beneficiaries diverted “illegal” gains to the accused officials and made false entries in their books of account to evade detection, the probe agencies said.

As per the allegations, the excise department had decided to refund the earnest money deposit of about Rs 30 crore to a successful tenderer against the set rules.

Even though there was no enabling provision, a waiver on tendered licence fees was allowed from December 28, 2021, to January 27, 2022, due to COVID-19, the probe agency said and there was an alleged loss of Rs 144.36 crore to the exchequer.(ANI)

Modi Doesn’t Do Hindu-Musalmaan

Modi Doesn’t Do Hindu-Musalmaan; He Asks For Equal Participation

Nisar Ahmed, a youth voter from Gorakhpur, says Modi’s speeches are given a communal twist to provoke a particular set of voters. His views:

Much hue and cry has been created about the election addresses made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling them as ‘hate speech’ against Muslims. Modi ji himself clarified that the day he does Hindu-Musalmaan he will not be fit for a public office. If you seek my opinion, I did not find anything which is, by any stretch of imagination, an attempt to instigate or demean any particular community.

Modi has been talking about the ‘ghuspaithiyas’ (infiltrators) and Citizenship Amendment Act. How can this be construed as talking about Muslims? Right from the beginning it has been BJP’s stand that we have to guard our demography from illegal migrants. Modi has only been reiterating this fact. To add communal angle into this only reflects a guilty conscience.

I find nothing wrong if the BJP government is firm on this issue as being an informed Muslim, I think that these infiltrators (Bangladeshis, Rohingyas etc) are eating up on the resources meant for us (Muslims). It is only for the political gains of a few political parties and the so called ‘Dharm Gurus’ and ‘Messiahs’ that the Muslims are fed with venom against a stand which is in favour of our country and community.

ALSO READ: ‘BJP Tacit Support To Revanna Exposes Their Misogyny’

For the past ten years since the BJP formed its government at the Centre, a propaganda is being spread that Muslims are in danger under anti-minority Modi government. This has reduced our community into a vote bank. We are told to vote with only one purpose – to defeat BJP – and not about local issues, development or price rise.

If Modi boasts of his decision about Triple Talaq, Article 370 etc., I do not think there is anything wrong in it. Are we not witnessing a different and a developing Kashmir ever since? I know many women of my community enjoying a peaceful and dignified life just because their husbands cannot resort to the threat of Triple Talaq. Modi always calls upon fellow Indians to come forward, join hands and participate in nation building. I have never heard him discriminating and saying that, for example, ‘all Indians except Muslims come together’.

You will be surprised if you go through the list of beneficiaries of government schemes in my district. A good number of Muslims are now living in houses built under the PM Awas Yojana and a majority of those enjoying the loan scheme for street vendors are Muslims! It’s as simple as that – We had been for long and till now are being considered only apt for ‘Dari Bichana Kursi Lagana’ for our netas despite voting blindfolded for them. But if we vote for someone and get benefits in addition, why shouldn’t we? I can take you along many localities in my district where not only youths but an ample size of our population has similar views and are voting for BJP for a reason – equal participation and equal share.
