New Delhi, Jan 21 (IANS) : Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah of lying to the nation over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and said that they are a ‘drag on democracy’.

Sibal’s comment came after the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Monday lowered India’s economic growth rate forecast for the current fiscal to 4.8 per cent.Taking to Twitter, Sibal said, “IMF lowers India’s GDP for 2019 to 4.8%. Calls it a drag on the world economy… Protests of people , young and old , across India (who can’t be recognised by the clothes they wear)… Reflect that the duo Modiji and Amit Shah are a drag on Indian Democracy.

“The Congress leader said that the Constitution doesn’t discriminate on the basis of religion but Modi and Shah wanted to do it which is why we are opposing it.He also accused the UP government of giving citizenship to people who don’t have papers.

Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 20 (IANS) Keeping its date with taking a strong position against the Citizenship Amendment Act, the Kerala cabinet which had a special meeting on Monday, decided to inform the Census Commissioner that the state will not implement the National Population Register (NPR) when census operations get rolling.Speaking to the media here, State Local Administration Minister A.C. Moideen said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has already made this clear.

“This has been decided and it will inform to the Census Directorate that certain questions which will go for the preparations of the NPR will not be done here,” said Moideen to the media, soon after the cabinet meeting.After Punjab, Kerala became the second state in the country not to go forward with any action on the preparations for the NPR and with that, the National Register of Citizens (NRC), will also not happen.

The Vijayan cabinet decided to go with the decision of the Central Committee meeting of the CPI-M, which concluded on Sunday here. The meeting, while making it clear that the census operations can go ahead in the state, called upon people not to answer questions related to the NPR. The state assembly last month passed a resolution against the CAA and on January 13, Kerala became the first state in the country to file a suit in the Supreme Court requesting it to declare the CAA as unconstitutional.

New Delhi, Jan 13 (IANS) Accusing the Congress of betraying the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) despite giving outside support to the government in Rajasthan, party supremo Mayawati on Monday made it clear that her party would not be attending the Opposition meeting called by United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi.Mayawati also appealed the Centre to make amendments in the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).In a series of tweets in Hindi, Mayawati said: “Despite giving outside support to Congress in Rajasthan, they made the BSP MLAs to join their party for the second time, which is betrayal.””Thus participating in the opposition meeting called by Congress will be demoralising for the BSP.

So BSP will not attend the meeting,” she said.Her remarks came ahead of the Opposition meeting convened by Sonia Gandhi over the issue of CAA, NRC and attacks on students in Jamia Millia Islamia University, Aligarh Muslim University and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).Cracks in Opposition has been visible in last couple of days as West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerhee has said that she will not attend the meeting.

Lamenting at the Central government over the controversial CAA, Mayawati appealed the government to take it back.”The BSP is against the CAA and the NRC. BSP appeals the government to roll back the divisive and unconstitutional act. Even the politicisation of the students in JNU and other varsities is unfortunate,” the BSP chief added.

By Navneet MishraNew Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) With only a month left for the Delhi Assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants Union Minister Smriti Irani to take up the war cry for the party at maximum rallies here, say party sources.A senior party leader told IANS: “Smriti Irani, the youngest cabinet minister of the Modi government, has her own glamour.

She has a great influence on the youth. Her speech style and sharp attacks on the opposition l Modi government,  eaders go well with the people. Her speeches tend to charge the party workers. That is why the BJP wants Smriti Irani to hold more rallies.”Another Delhi BJP leader said: “Smriti Irani was born in Delhi, grew up here and was educated here. Her father is of Punjabi origin and her mother is a Bengali. She contested her first Lok Sabha election in 2004 from Chandni Chowk in Delhi.

She also has a dedicated team of workers in Delhi. In view of all this, the party will surely benefit from her rallies and there are no two opinions on this.”Party leaders say that the manner in which she was specially invited to flag off the “Meri Delhi-Mera Sujav” poll campaign on January 4, indicated that she will have a special role in Delhi election.After defeating Rahul Gandhi from Amethi in 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Smriti Irani’s stature has increased in the party. In the recently held Assembly elections in Maharashtra and Jharkhand, Smriti Irani was one of the star campaigners. Many candidates wanted her to campaign for them. Now, in the Delhi Assembly elections, the BJP is planning more rallies by her.The BJP sources said that the party was soon going to release its list of star campaigners, and Smriti Irani will feature prominently in that.

New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) The Congress on Friday described the Supreme Court order to Jammu and Kashmir administration to view all its restrictive orders within a week as a big jolt to the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at Centre for curbing internet services since August  BJP government  4 last year.The opposition party said the Prime Minister has been reminded that nation bows before Constitution, and not him.

“Supreme Court delivers first big jolt of 2020 to illegal activities of Modi government by stating importance of internet as a fundamental right. Double shock for Modi-Shah that dissent cannot be oppressed by imposing section 144.

Modiji reminded that nation bows before Constitution and not him,” Congress spokesperson and national media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted.His remarks came soon after the Supreme Court on Friday directed the administration of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) to view all its restrictive orders within a week and publish them publicly for them to raised before a court of law.The court orders come as blow to the Centre that has been garnering support for its move in the Kashmir Valley.

The court also called the restriction on the internet as against the Constitution.A bench headed by Justice N.V. Ramana said the restrictions imposed on the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir by the administration of the newly formed Union Territory will have to be reviewed in seven days.

The Supreme Court in its verdict observed that the use of internet enjoys constitutional protection as tool, which is under the ambit of freedom of speech and expression and also enables people to carry on with their respective profession.On Section 144 of the CrPC, the apex court said it cannot be used to curb liberty, and this section can be used only where there is likelihood of incitement of violence and danger to public safety.–IANSaks/pgh/

Lucknow, Jan 8 (IANS) A senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Dilip Srivastava has alleged that the Modi government’s flagship programme ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ has failed miserably due to massive corruption and nexus of government-civic officials in the Uttar Pradesh.In a letter dated January 2, addressed to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, BJP spokesperson Srivastava said: “Although the government has cracked down on corruption in Uttar Pradesh, it has continued in the Lucknow Municipal Corporation under the patronage of state government officials.

They have ensured that the 74th Amendment of the Constitution, which empowers civic bodies, is not fully implemented in the State. Therefore, the institution of local self-government is on the verge of dying.”A copy of the letter has been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh who represents Lucknow in Parliament and a few others also.Srivastava further said: “The Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) has outsourced garbage collection work to a private firm “Eco-green” and sewage cleaning work to another firm “Suyash”.

Both failed to deliver, but managed to get the payment. Lucknow ranks much below in the Swachhta rank. Who is responsible for that?”Talking to reporters Srivastava said: “Both are private firms, and neither have they expertise, nor the staff or resources to do the work. This has derailed the basic civic infrastructure of Lucknow. There is a huge unrest among the public due to these issues and they can come on the roads.

Due to massive corruption and this racket, even we are unable to get these works done. I have written to Prime Minister only to apprise him about the simmering situation and our helplessness.”According to Srivastava, the decision to outsource these major works to private firms was done through a government order passed by the state two years ago.Even tender process was not followed in hiring these firms, alleges Srivastava, adding that a similar model was followed in other cities too.

“The LMC had passed a resolution in 2019 to remove these firms after negative feedback from the citizens. However, the nexus of civic and state government officials never approved the LMC proposal. Lucknow continues to be full of garbage and sewer overflow and we do not even know where the fund for the smart city has gone. I hope the senior leaders take cognizance of the issue. This is in the larger interest of the party as well,” he said.Srivastava has not received any response to his letter so far.Lucknow has been allocated Rs 350 crore under the smart city mission to upgrade roads, bus shelters, cleanliness, beautification and solar rooftop projects.

Additionally, Rs 150 crore has been given under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) scheme for laying sewer lines and water supply lines.
