CCTV footage of Satyendar Jain

Jain’s Jail Luxury Continues: House-keeping service In His Cell

The latest video that has emerged in a series of purported CCTV footage of Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain inside the Tihar jail, shows house-keeping services being provided to the jail cell of the Aam Aadmi Party leader.

The purported footage that emerged according to the sources on Sunday morning was dated September 13, 15 and October 1 in which the visuals show men sweeping the floor of the jail cell and also arranging the Minister’s bed. In the visuals dated September 12, Jain was seen interacting with other people inside his jail cell.
This is ostensibly the fourth CCTV footage that has emerged relating to the jail Delhi Minister. The first purported visuals, which appeared on November 19, showed the Minister getting a full body massage. The second purported footage surfaced on November 23, a day after Jain’s counsel claimed inside the trial court that the Minister had lost 28 kg of weight during his custody. In the footage, Jain was seen having an elaborate and extensive meal. Interestingly, sources had said that the Minister had gained 8 kg weight instead.

In the third purported footage that came out on November 26, the Minister was seen having a conversation with some people, including currently suspended Jail superintendent Ajit Kumar.

Earlier on Saturday, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla slammed AAP over the November 26 video of Jain and termed it as “AAP ka darbar of Bhrashtachar”.

Shehzad said this was the third video in the series — first AAP made a ‘spa’ in Tihar where Delhi’s health minister Satyendra Jain got a ‘maalish’ from a child rapist and AAP labelled it as physiotherapy.

Then he was served 5-course meal but he claimed he was being starved.

Now a video shows how he was allowed to hold a “darbar” inside jail, he added.

Slamming Delhi chief minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal, Poonawalla asked whether Jain was kept as a minister despite getting no relief from courts so that he could do “Vasooli” and can also get VIP maalish?

The BJP leader demanded that Satyendra Jain be sacked and Kejriwal should apologise to the entire nation for defending a child rapist as a therapist and insulting physiotherapy.

Earlier on November 22, Shehzad Poonawalla alleged that Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi’s Deputy CM Manish Sisodia were aware of Satyendar Jain getting a massage in jail after a video of the minister had surfaced.

“The whole matter was in the knowledge of Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, but they are trying to fool the people that this was physiotherapy being done by a rapist,” Shehzad Poonawalla had said while talking to ANI.

Poonawalla had said that the person whom Kejriwal and Sisodia were passing off as a physiotherapist was actually a potential rapist and that too a rapist of young children who is involved in cases and the section 376 of IPC under the POCSO Act.

Poonawalla had said that this shows that Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia were not just passing off physiotherapy but actually defending “corruption therapy”. (ANI)

Satyendar Jain Tihar Jail

Tihar Jail Supt Among Others Seen Interacting With Jain

Fresh CCTV footage of jailed Delhi minister Satyendar Jain has emerged from Tihar Jail in which the Aam Aadmi Party leader is seen in conversation with some people, including the Jail superintendent Ajit Kumar who is currently under suspension.

In the purported videos sourced from Tihar Jail, Jain can be seen lying on his bed and Ajit Kumar is seated on a chair nearby while the pair apparently seem to be having a conversation. Kumar was suspended as Tihar Jail Superintendant on November 14 for allegedly providing special treatment to the Delhi minister.
At the beginning of the footage from earlier this September, the Delhi minister is seen interacting with several people who leave before Ajit Kumar enters Jain’s cell.

BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla tweeted the footage and posted on his Twitter account, “Yet another video of Tihar put out by the media. This time the Satyendar ka darbaar has a Jail superintendent who has now been suspended.”

“After maalish by child rapist & Nawabi meal now this! This is corruption therapy of AAP but Kejriwal ji defends this! Will he sack SJ now?,” Shehzad Jai Hind’s Twitter handle tweeted.

The new CCTV footage came after the Tihar Jail Superintendent was suspended for allegedly providing special treatment to jailed Jain.

Meanwhile, earlier on November 23, Jain had filed an application in a Delhi court seeking direction to restrain all media organizations from airing, broadcasting, or publishing any CCTV clip related to him.

The plea stated that all the national media are regularly running CCTV footage of Satyendar Jain. A parallel media trial is going against him, despite the present matter being examined by this court, argued senior advocate Rahul Mehra who appeared for Jain.

Two days back, a video emerged showing Jain having an elaborate meal inside. Jain was seen having food including fruits and dry fruits.

The video of having a meal came out just a day after footage of the minister receiving an oil massage inside his jail cell trigged an uproar.

Tihar Jail sources also said that the Delhi minister gained 8 kg weight during his time in jail, contrary to his lawyer’s claims of him having lost 28 kgs.

The new footage surfaced a day after Jain submitted before the trial court that he has not been getting privileges like proper food and medical check-up in Tihar Jail. He had also claimed that he lost 28 kg while being locked up in jail.

On Tuesday, the minister’s counsel Senior Advocate Rahul Mehra had alleged that Enforcement Directorate was leaking sensitive information to the media despite the order of the Court and undertaking given in this court.

Rahul Mehra also denied ED allegations of getting privileged treatment in Tihar Jail. He asked, “What privilege are they talking about?”

“I have lost 28 kg in jail. Is this what a privileged person in jail gets? I’m not even getting proper food. What privilege are they talking about? No prison rules are violated if an undertrial is pressing his hand or feet,” Jain said.

However, appearing for ED, advocate Zohaib Hossain denied the allegations made by Satyendar Jain’s lawyer and said that there is not a single leak from the Enforcement Directorate.

Purported videos of the minister getting a massage inside his cell in Tihar went viral on social media. The Aam Aadmi Party however asserted that Jain was receiving physiotherapy.

Sources reported on Tuesday that the person administering massage to Jain was not a physiotherapist, furthermore, he has been identified as a rape accused too.

Jailed Delhi Minister was being given a massage by an accused in a rape case, the official sources claimed on Tuesday.

The Tihar Jail official sources claimed that the prisoner, identified as Rinku, was “not a physiotherapist” and has been charged under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.

“The masseur providing massage to jailed Delhi min Satyendar Jain is a prisoner Rinku. He’s a prisoner in a rape case, charged u/s 6 of the POCSO Act and 376, 506 & 509 of IPC. He’s not a physiotherapist,” the sources claimed.

The purported CCTV footage dated September 13 shows the minister lying on his bed while a man seated next to him is seen massaging his foot.

Jain has been in jail since June. A Delhi court denied his bail application on November 16. (ANI)

Manish Sisodia alleged bjp

Sisodia Alleges BJP Conspiring To Kill Kejriwal; Manoj Terms Murder Script Old One

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia on Friday again alleged that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was conspiring to kill Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and that he will submit a complaint regarding the same to the Election Commission. The Delhi Deputy Chief Minister also demanded that BJP’s Manoj Tiwari be arrested for his “threat” against the AAP national convenor.

“Manoj Tiwari has threatened Kejriwal, which makes it clear that BJP is conspiring to murder Arvind Kejriwal. The way Manoj Tiwari Ji has spoken yesterday, it was an open threat that after failing to trap Kejriwal through various attempts has now come to the level of killing him. Manoj Tiwari is asserting for the sake of saying that he (Delhi CM) can be attacked by anyone, how did he know? This needs to be investigated hence will file a complaint with Election Commission and an FIR,” Sisodia said addressing a press conference today.
Meanwhile, responding to Sisodia’s allegations today, Tiwari, while addressing a press conference in the national capital, said that he had only “expressed his concern” for the safety of the Delhi Chief Minister.

“I have only expressed my concern towards Kejriwal’s safety. His MLAs are being beaten and one of the party’s workers has died, the situation is of concern to me. This script of murder and threat to murder by AAP is an old one, only the year changes, their allegations remain same,” Tiwari said displaying printouts of the previous similar allegations by the AAP.

In a tweet yesterday, the Delhi Deputy CM said that the BJP was scared of losing upcoming elections and hence was “conspiring to kill” CM Kejriwal through MP Manoj Tiwari and his “goons”.

“Due to the fear of defeat in Gujarat and MCD elections, BJP is planning to kill Arvind Kejriwal with their MP Manoj Tiwari openly asking his goons to attack Arvind Ji. The AAP is not afraid of their petty politics, the public will answer for their hooliganism,” Sisodia tweeted in Hindi.

Sisodia’s tweets followed BJP MP Tiwari’s tweets on the same day in which he said he was worried for the Delhi CM because of anger among AAP party workers regarding tickets for the elections and allegations of corruption.

Meanwhile, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor also asked how Sisodia came with a fear of Arvind Kejriwal’s killing right before every election.

Praveen Shankar Kapoor further said, “Manish Sisodia ji, how much more will you lower the level of politics, your people are calling you a thief, a case of suspected suicide has also come to the fore, your MLAs are openly threatening the general public and now this tweet of yours seems to be your internal survey. AAP is losing not only in Gujarat, and Himachal but also in Delhi.

In a shocking incident, Aam Aadmi Party’s trade wing secretary, Sandeep Bhardwaj, was found dead at his Rajouri Garden residence on Thursday.

Notably, Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena took note of the tweets and statements by the Aam Aadmi Party leaders including the ones made by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia where he has alleged Bharatiya Janata Party of planning to kill CM Arvind Kejriwal, the Raj Niwas sources said.

The sources said that the LG has taken note of Tweets and statements by AAP leaders, including Dy CM Manish Sisodia, and asked the Police Commissioner to ensure that such eventuality orchestrated, or otherwise, does not happen, to the farthest possible extent. (ANI)

Satyendar Jain viral video

Video Of Jain Enjoying Meal In Tihar Goes Viral

A new purported video of jailed Delhi minister Satyendar Jain having an elaborate meal inside Tihar has emerged, just a day after footage of the minister receiving an oil massage inside his jail cell trigged an uproar.

The latest CCTV footage sourced from Tihar jail sources shows Jain getting an elaborate meal in jail.
Tihar Jail sources also said that the Delhi minister gained 8 kg weight during his time in jail, contrary to his lawyer’s claims of him having lost 28 kgs.

The new footage surfaced a day after Jain on Tuesday submitted before the trial court that he has not been getting privileges like proper food and medical check-up in Tihar Jail. He had also claimed that he lost 28 kg while being locked up in jail.

Sharing the video on his twitter handle BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla said “One more video from media! After taking maalish from rapist & calling him PHYSIO therapist, Satyendra Jain can be seen enjoying sumptuous meal! Attendants serve him food as if he is in a resort on vacation!”

“Kejriwal ji ensured that hawalabaaz gets VVIP maza not saza!,” Poonawalla said

In an accompanying video on his Twitter account, Poonawalla said after,” He is being served outside food by two attendants as if he is in a resort or a restaurant and there is a variety of delicacies and dishes in front him, as if he is not there for the saza (punishment) of corruption, but maza (fun) of maalish (massage)and restaurant food.”

“Arvind Kejriwal must answer why the person who has been in jail for the last five months is being given this facility by keeping him in the minister post — to take ‘vasooli’ from Sukesh, maalish from a rapist and now food from outside jail,” Shehzad said.

In the latest purported footage from Tihar jail, Jain is seen having food including fruits and dry fruits.

On Tuesday, the minister’s counsel Senior Advocate Rahul Mehra had alleged that Enforcement Directorate was leaking sensitive information to the media despite the order of the Court and undertaking given in this court.

Rahul Mehra also denied ED allegations of getting privileged treatment in Tihar Jail. He asked, “What privilege are they talking about?”

“I have lost 28 kg in jail. Is this what a privileged person in jail gets? I’m not even getting proper food. What privilege are they talking about? No prison rules are violated if an undertrial is pressing his hand or feet,” Jain said.

However, appearing for ED, advocate Zohaib Hossain denied the allegations made by Satyendar Jain’s lawyer and said that there is not a single leak from the Enforcement Directorate.

The latest episode comes days after purported videos of the minister getting a massage inside his cell in Tihar went viral on social media. The Aam Aadmi Party however asserted that Jain was receiving physiotherapy.

Sources reported on Tuesday that the person administering massage to Jain was not a physiotherapist, furthermore, he has been identified as a rape accused too.

Jailed Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain, who was criticized over the viral CCTV video inside the Tihar, was being given a massage by an accused in a rape case, the official sources claimed on Tuesday.

The Tihar Jail official sources claimed that the prisoner, identified as Rinku, was “not a physiotherapist” and has been charged under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.

“The masseur providing massage to jailed Delhi min Satyendar Jain is a prisoner Rinku. He’s a prisoner in a rape case, charged u/s 6 of the POCSO Act and 376, 506 & 509 of IPC. He’s not a physiotherapist,” the sources claimed.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday claimed that the CCTV footage that went viral showing Jain being given a full-body massage was a “treatment for injury”.

“Only BJP can make cruel jokes by leaking CCTV footage of an injured person’s treatment… His (Satyendar Jain’s) spine was damaged, it’s on record,” Sisodia had said on Saturday.

However, the Deputy Chief Minister’s claim was refuted by the Indian Association of Physiotherapists.

The body also demanded an apology for “degrading physiotherapy”.

Calling out the Minister, the Indian Association of Physiotherapists tweeted on Saturday, “IAP strongly condemns the statement of the minister degrading physiotherapy by comparing it with massage given to another minister. Shows the level of education and knowledge they have about our noble profession.”

In a video, the president of the association condemned the minister while also demanding an apology from him.

“There is news going on on social media and we have received many complaints from our members. Many physiotherapists all across India that in jail, and one physiotherapy session was given to a patient. And as a professor of physiotherapy and as president of the Indian

Association of Physiotherapists, we can say that the session going on was not physiotherapy. It is a way of degrading physiotherapy. We strongly condemn this act. We want that the Minister or whosoever should apologize for that,” he said.

“I request all physiotherapists in India to write down to the news channels that please don’t degrade physiotherapy. This is not physiotherapy. Let’s condemn this act and let’s move in a direction where we can correct things,” the president added.

Earlier on Saturday, the former PRO of the Tihar jail said that it cannot be physiotherapy as the video clearly showed that co-inmates were giving him a massage.

Sunil Gupta, former PRO of the Tihar jail told ANI that the video makes it clear that other prisoners of the prison were giving the minister a massage.

“Massage is different from physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is given in physiotherapy wards in the hospital,” he said.

The purported CCTV footage dated September 13 shows the minister lying on his bed while a man seated next to him is seen massaging his foot.

In another video shared by BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla on his official Twitter handle, a man is seen massaging the Delhi minister’s legs and back before proceeding to give him a full head massage.

The videos surfaced on social media on Saturday, 10 days after the ED accused the Delhi minister, who was arrested in a money laundering case, of getting special treatment inside the Tihar jail.

Jain has been in jail since June. A Delhi court denied his bail application on November 16. (ANI)

Congress leader Ajay Maken

Cong Alleges Corruption In Kejriwal’s Electricity Model, Demands CBI Probe

Congress leader and former Delhi Power Minister Ajay Maken has targeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s electricity model and termed it as the “corruption” model.

Releasing a booklet along with the affidavit, Maken said that the electricity rate in Delhi is the highest in the country. The industrial rate is Rs 13/unit and the commercial rate is Rs 16.09/unit. Whereas in neighbouring states like Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan, it is very less, he added.
Between 2014 and 2019, 2,638 factories were closed or migrated, due to which 1,38,000 jobs were lost.

The manufacturing sector in Delhi was growing at the rate of 12 percent during Congress rule, but it has come down to below 1 percent i.e. 74 percent in the last six years, Maken claimed.

Kejriwal’s electricity model is the reason for rising unemployment in Delhi, he alleged.

Due to the privatization done during the Sheila Dixit government, Delhi has the least power theft, while the electricity rate is the highest. The electricity theft figure was 45.3 percent in 2002, which is now only 8.9 percent, he said.

In the last five years, the average rate of electricity has increased up to Rs 2.45/unit electricity and distribution companies have earned Rs 1,746 crore annually in one year, yet why are electricity rates increasing? he asked.

“Delhi government gives money directly to private companies without audit. Instead of providing Rs 14,731 crore as a power subsidy to consumers, it is being given directly to private companies. At the same time, the Aam Aadmi Party had earlier said in its manifesto that the subsidy would be given to government companies instead of private companies. With this much money, consumers can get up to 500 units of free electricity. If the Congress government comes, they will do it,” he further said.

“Delhi government has appointed Aam Aadmi Party’s treasurer and MP ND Gupta’s son Naveen Gupta as director of the electricity company, Kejriwal should answer this,” he stated.

There are 58 lakh domestic consumers in Delhi. The Delhi government used to say that 90 percent of the consumers are taking advantage of the subsidy. Now only 37 lakh i.e. contrary to the claim, only 60 percent of consumers got registered in the Delhi government’s Voluntary Scheme. So till now why this 30 percent fake consumers’ money was given to a private company? he asked.

Maken claimed that unemployment has increased in Delhi due to expensive electricity in Kejriwal’s electricity model and corruption of crores has taken place in the name of 30 percent fake consumers.

Maken has demanded a CBI inquiry, terming the 30 percent fake consumer case as a power subsidy scam.

Making it Kejriwal’s “BBB” model, Maken said that it is an electricity, unemployment, and corruption model. “We will take this among the people in Gujarat and also tell the people there that, if unemployment is to be increased and industries are to be closed, only then give Kejriwal a chance. The Congress will use this booklet extensively in the MCD and Gujarat elections as well.” (ANI)

Sukesh Chandrashekhar letter

Ready To Be Hanged: Sukesh Chandrashekhar Writes Another Letter

Releasing another letter, Jailed conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who is facing several cases of corruption under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Money Laundering Act alleged that he was ready to be hanged if any of the issues he has raised to Delhi LG turned out to be wrong.

In his press letter provided by his lawyer, Sukesh said, “(Delhi CM) Kejriwal Ji, if any of my raised issues to Delhi LG turn out to be wrong as you and your associates said, I am ready to be hanged. But if the complaint is proven true, you will resign and retire from politics for good.”
He also alleged that Aam Adami Party’s Satyendar Jain asked him to pay money to the party for the Goa and Punjab elections.

“I kept quiet and ignored everything but due to your constant threats and pressure through the Jail administration and Mr. Jain asking me to give funds during Punjab and Goa polls, brazenly even though I was undergoing investigation,” Sukesh wrote.

Rejecting the AAP’s allegations that he was lying, Sukesh Chandrasekar said if he was lying then why the jail administration was pressurizing him or being coerced to withdraw his earlier complaint?

“Kejriwal Ji why was Mr. Jain constantly asking me to withdraw the complaint filed in HC against former DG Sandeep Goel and the Jail administration? Why was I constantly threatened apart from asking me to give more funds for your election Campaigns? Why afraid of enquiry? What are you scared off if you are truthful?” he said in his letter.

Chandrashekar rejected the allegations of AAP leaders that he was trying to malign the image of the party and its leaders at the behest of the BJP ahead of the Delhi MCD elections.

“Kejriwalji doesn’t keep saying all this is being done because of elections, let me tell you something and give to a piece of advice. You know me very well. You and Mr. Jain are among the few people, who know me very well so, don’t hallucinate that won’t give evidence against all that I have said or won’t testify. I will give every single thing that I have, which you know very well, as your mask has to be removed in open. Please Kejriwalji don’t daydream about winning elections as people are seeing everything, your Drama won’t work anymore, your karma, your lies, you will be defeated badly for sure,” he further wrote.

Earlier on Monday, he wrote another letter to Delhi LG Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena requesting the CBI probe against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

In his latest letter to Delhi LG, Chandrashekhar wrote, “I request you to direct an urgent CBI investigation and allow me to file FIR as the pressure is getting too much and any undue event may take place before the truth about AAP is exposed,” he wrote.

Alleging that he is being threatened by AAP leader Satyendar Jain and ex-DG (Prisons) of Tihar jail after his complaint to the Delhi L-G went public, he said, “After my last application was released on media, from last two days there has been a severe threat that I have been receiving from the jail administration on behalf of Mr. Satyendar Jain and DG prison Sandeep Goel.” (ANI)

BJP On Chandrasekhar's Letter

Kejriwal Is Guru Of Thugs: BJP On Chandrasekhar’s Letter

Amid the row over conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s letter mentioning Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of receiving money, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia on Saturday launched a scathing attack on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief attributing him as the “guru of all thugs”.

Addressing a press conference, Bhatia said, “Arvind Kejriwal is the guru of all the thugs. There is no friend whom Arvind Kejriwal has not cheated. The sins and misdeeds of Arvind Kejriwal were exposed by the letter of misdeeds by the letter from Sukesh Chandrasekhar.”
“The letter says the way Arvind Kejriwal takes Rs 50 crore from the great thugs and discusses sending such persons against whom there are many criminal cases to Rajya Sabha. Today, the role of three people becomes clear in this, the first is the biggest thug and kingpin Arvind Kejriwal, the second is Satyendra Jain, third is Kailash Gehlot,” he added.

Bhatia said according to the letter, Kejriwal told Sukesh Chandrashekhar that he had given Rs 50 crores and asked him to bring 20-30 more businessmen like him and gave a target of Rs 500-600 crore.

The BJP leader said that Kejriwal’s promise of clean Delhi has failed and people in the national capital are suffering from severe air quality.

Attacking Kejriwal, BJP MP Gautam Gambhir said, “The biggest thug is not the one who is sitting in jail but the one who is sitting on the chair of Delhi and cheating the entire Delhi and the people of the country. He has already made Delhi dirty. Now he wants to make Rajya Sabha dirty. Delhi has neither clean water to drink nor clean air to breathe.”

In a letter that has been confirmed by his lawyer, Sukesh, who is currently lodged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail and facing several cases of corruption under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Money Laundering Act, alleged, “Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain and ex-Tihar DG are threatening me after my complaint to Delhi’s LG went public”.

Launching a scathing attack on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Sukesh fired questions at him.

“Kejriwal Ji why you forced me to bring 20-30 individuals to contribute Rs 500 crore to the party in return for seats,” he claimed.

Sukesh further asked why did the Delhi Chief Minister receive Rs 50 crore from him and offered him a Rajya Sabha seat.

“Kejriwal Ji, I am the country’s biggest thus according to you, then why on what basis you received Rs 50 crore from me and offered Rajya Sabha seat to me? So what does that make you?” the letter alleged.

He further asked the Delhi Chief Minister and jailed Minister Satyendar Jain to “stop threatening and intimidating” him through the jail administration and said that nothing will stop him from seeking a detailed CBI probe.

“Kejriwal ji and Satyendar Jain ji, stop threatening and intimidating me through the jail administration. Nothing will stop me from moving ahead and seeking a detailed CBI probe,” the letter stated.

“After my arrest in the year 2017, I was imprisoned in Tihar Jail and Satyendra Jain visited me several times. The secretary had asked me to give Rs 2 crore per month as protection money,” Chandrashekhar stated in his letter. (ANI)

Advocate Ashish Tripathi on Currency Notes

Laxmi-Ganesh On Rupee Notes Is A Laughable Poll Gimmick

Ashish Tripathi, a finance expert and a lawyer in the Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court, advises political parties to spare the rupee from politicking

Firstly, one thing should be clear about the Indian currency notes and coins – The Reserve Bank of India internally works out a design which is then put forth by the central board of the federal bank. The design, form, ink and material of bank notes shall be such as may be approved by the Union Government after consideration of the recommendations made by the central board.

All the politicians involved in creating a flutter on the issue are doing this just to fulfil their political ambitions and `lure’ a particular section of society. Their sole aim is to project themselves as the `messiah’ of a section of the majority community and add them to their vote bank.

All of us know the condition of the Rupee. It is trying hard to maintain a respectable stance against the US dollar and indulging in such cheap politics instead of doing your bid to assist the economy of India reflects your cheap and short term ambitions.

I will quote the example of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal who ignited a controversy by writing a letter to the PM. Be it the CM of Delhi or any state, he or she should first focus on achieving the goals they have set for their states welfare. For Delhi, my advice would be to clean the Yamuna, check air pollution, better traffic management, install CCTV cameras, etc, all the issues that were Mr Kejriwal’s poll promises before returning to power.

While most of his poll promises remain unfulfilled, he now wants to become the torch bearer of taking our economy to newer heights by suggesting the picture of Laxmi-Ganesh on currency notes that will, according to him, make rupee soar again.

ALSO READ: ‘AAP Trying To Beat BJP At Their Own Game’

In general, state governments should make their contribution to the Indian economy by small things like controlling VAT of fuel, maintaining the supply chain, providing a competitive environment for business, etc.

I would also like to quote an example: in 2002, a ₹10 coin having the picture of Vaishnao Devi was released and the Delhi High court was quick to observe that the Constitution of India does not permit use of any kind of religious symbol on currency notes and coins. The matter should have ended there if these so called `Desh Bhakts and Intellectuals’ had eyes and ears and minds to remain updated.

I have also come across the views of some `learned intellectuals’ quoting the example of Indonesia where (being a Muslim country) the currency note has the picture of Lord Ganesha. While such people invest so much time on the social media university brushing up their knowledge and intellect, they should know that the country was once ruled by the Chola dynasty which mastered architecture and considered Ganesha as the God of architecture and knowledge.

Do they also know that the schools and educational institutions in Indonesia have the statue/picture of Lord Ganesha? Does Kejriwal, or as a matter of fact, any other `secular’ CM or state head dare any such feet without the fear of vote bank? The answer is a simple NO.

As told to Rajat Rai

Air Quality Delhi-NCR

Delhi: AQI Severe; Noida Records 529 AQI, Gurugram At 478

The air quality in Delhi continued to remain in the ‘severe’ category on Saturday, for the third day in a row, even though a slight improvement was noted in the Air Quality Index (AQI) of the national capital, which stood at 431 this morning.

On Friday during the corresponding morning period, the AQI of the capital city was recorded at 472.
Also, areas in the national capital region (NCR) area – Noida and Gurugram at 7 am this morning recorded an AQI of 529 and 478 respectively both in the highly toxic ‘severe’.

Dhirpur in West Delhi recorded an AQI of 534.

On Friday, SAFAR (System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research) said that stubble-burning accounted for 34 percent to Delhi’s particulate matter (PM) 2.5 pollution.

Air Quality Index from 0 to 100 is considered good, while from 100 to 200 it is moderate, from 200 to 300 it is poor, and from 300 to 400 it is said to be very poor and from 400 to 500 or above it is considered as severe.

People of Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) complained of choking and ‘eye burning’ due to smog and air pollution leaving people gasping for breath.

Earlier on Friday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann held a press conference and urged the central government to come forward and lead measures to check severe smog in the national capital region.

Kejriwal and Mann said that the AAP governments are in Punjab and Delhi. This is not the time to raise fingers or abuse each other. If they say, Kejriwal is responsible and we say they are responsible, this will not solve the problem of smog in NCR, they added.

“We do not want to play blame game, we are responsible (for smog in NCR)”, they added.

CM Kejriwal announced that primary schools in Delhi would be closed from November 5.

Besides, the outdoor activity of students of the above fifth standard has been banned.

The Delhi government is also mulling implementing the odd-even norms for plying of vehicles in Delhi to contain the pollution caused by vehicular emission, he added.

However, the forecast predicts that the condition of air quality in Delhi and nearby regions will continue to deteriorate further and expects improvement from November 5.

“Air quality is likely to remain within ‘Severe’ today and likely to improve tomorrow to ‘lower end of Severe’ and from 5th onwards air quality is likely to improve further to ‘Very poor’ due to upper-level wind reversal that prevents inflow of stubble-related pollutants. Higher surface wind speed on 5th Nov is likely to disperse pollutants,” said a press release. (ANI)

Piyush Goyal Lashes out at AAP

Failing On Every Front: Goyal Lashes Out At AAP

Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal on Friday lashed out at the Aad Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the national capital, accusing it of ‘failing on every front.

Amid the escalating war of words between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the AAP over the fast declining air quality in Delhi, the senior BJP leader claimed that the ‘hollow propaganda’ of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his party had been exposed and the people were saddened by the government’s failed promises.
Goyal said the people will give a fitting reply to the AAP government’s failed promises in the upcoming electoral battles. Buoyed by its resounding mandate in Punjab, the Kejriwal-led party will contest the upcoming Assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat in a bid to extend its national footprint.

Speaking to ANI, the union commerce minister said, “Delhi government is failing on every front. The people will give a befitting reply to this. The people of Delhi are saddened by the hollow propaganda.”

The senior BJP leader claimed that the people in the national capital are determined to bring his party back to power not only at the Centre but also in Delhi in the next Assembly elections. “The people of Delhi have made up their minds to bring the BJP back to power at the Centre and the union territory. We are all set to come back to power,” Goyal said.

The BJP and the AAP are currently embroiled in a blame game on the worsening air quality in Delhi, which the former has blamed on alleged rising incidents of stubble burning in Punjab.

However, the AAP hit back claiming that Punjab was being singled out when other states, including the BJP-ruled Haryana, were also to blame for the prevailing situation. In a joint press conference with Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday, Kejriwal said stubble burning was a ‘North Indian problem’ and the central government needs to step in and find a sustainable solution to the problem.

The BJP had earlier accused Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia of corruption in rolling out the new liquor policy. While Sisodia is facing a probe by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the CBI, the new liquor policy has since been rolled back and the old policy restored.

The AAP had, however, denied any foul play and accused the BJP-led Centre of a witchhunt against Sisodia. (ANI)
