Akbaruddin Owaisi said to PM Modi, You want to be chowkidar? I will give you whistle and cap

Hyderabad

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen’s firebrand leader Akbaruddin Owaisi has mocked BJP’s 2019 poll campaign ‘main bhi chowkidar’ and said that in case Narendra Modi wants, he can give ‘a whistle and a cap’ to the Prime Minister. Addressing a rally in Hyderabad, Owaisi said that the nation is not interested in having a ‘pakodewala’ or a ‘chaiwala’. “We want a prime minister…. .I am surprised at those who vote for Modi, what kind of person they vote for? If Modi is so interested in being a 'Chowkidar', he should come to me, I will offer him a Chowkidar's cap and a whistle,” Owaisi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

He also slammed the top BJP leadership for changing their Twitter names. "I have seen on Twitter where the names have become as 'Chowkidar Narendra Modi', 'Chowkidar Amit Shah'. Why only on Twitter? He should also mention 'Chowkidar' in his Aadhaar card, voter-id and passport," Owaisi said.

The MLA from Chandrayangutta, Owaisi had recently said that he is open to the idea of contesting from Aurangabad for the Lok Sabah elections next month. “Why will Asad saab (Asaduddin Owaisi) contest from Aurangabad or Moradabad? I am here. If anyone has to go anywhere, I will be the one! My chief will stay here and contest from here, as all previous AIMIM chiefs have done,” Owaisi reportedly said at a rally in Kishan Bagh.




AAP moves SC seeking larger bench on who controls services in Delhi


AAP moves SC seeking larger bench on who controls services in Delhi

New Delhi: The Arvind Kejriwal-led government on Monday moved the Supreme Court, seeking the constitution of a larger bench to decide who controls services in the national capital. The SC bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi told the Delhi government counsel to look into the services matter.

The apex court had on February 14 referred the issue of control of services to a larger bench after delivering a split verdict. The two-judge bench had said that the Centre should have the final word on posting and transfer of bureaucrats in the national capital administration, but their disagreement on finer details resulted in a split verdict and the matter got referred to a larger bench. Thereafter the two-judge SC bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan failed to agree on the services issue and transferred it to a larger bench.

On several occasions in the past, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP leaders had accused the lieutenant governor of working at the behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Centre, which was allegedly creating hurdles in the Delhi government’s works through officers. A senior bureaucrat had earlier expressed apprehension that the tussle between the AAP government and the officers would continue in the coming days as the ruling party would have political pressure to execute their schemes.

After the court orders, the husband was not giving alimony to the husband

For the first time in Uttar Pradesh, a person was instructed to pay Rs 4.75 lakh for the maintenance of wife in January 2017.

The work which was not able to order more than a dozen court judges during two years, it happened after five days in jail. A man who was not giving alimony to his wife despite many court orders from January 2017. After being sent to jail on an order of the Supreme Court, he had cut the check from the jail to pay the outstanding amount.

For the first time in Uttar Pradesh, a person was instructed to pay Rs 4.75 lakh for the maintenance of wife in January 2017. When the person did not obey the order, the wife filed a petition for contempt of court and in September 2017, a show-cause notice was issued to that person. After this, the date-date dates were filed in the case.

Then the court fixed the deadline so that the person running a pizza restaurant franchise could pay the money. The first installment came in October 2018 after the court ordered the person to appear for personal appearance when the court asked his lawyers to be ready to bear the consequences.

To deposit the remaining Rs 1 lakh, the court was asked to be present on every date of hearing. But he paid only 35,000 rupees during the five hearings in the next three months. After this, he stopped coming to the court despite the orders of being personally present in the court.

The circumstances of Goa show that the 'secrets' of the political instability of small states


The circumstances of Goa show that the 'secrets' of the political instability of small states

After the formation of the Federal Territory in 1987, Goa has seen changing the CM 20 times so far. It also includes the 2002 incident when Manohar Parrikar became 'Caretaker CM'. Due to the dissolution of the Assembly, Parrikar had to fulfill the responsibility of the Chief Minister for 65 days.

After Manohar Parrikar's demise in Goa, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government passed the floor test in the 40-seat Goa Assembly. There are currently 36 MLAs in the Assembly For the majority, the government headed by Pramod Sawant needed 19 MLAs. During the Floor Test, Sawant got together with 20 MLAs, while 15 MLAs voted in the Opposition. In this way Pramod Sawant's government has secured confidence vote with the difference of five votes.

Before Manohar Parrikar's demise, there was a political crisis in Goa. BJP had 13 MLAs, while the Goa Forward Party (GFP) and the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) had 3-3 MLAs. Apart from this, there were also 3 Independent MLAs and one NCP MLA. At the same time, the Congress has 14 MLAs.

Look at the Floor Test and the results of the last Lok Sabha elections, it is clear that the majority of the ruling BJP government in Goa is slowly falling. Concerns about the political turmoil of the party are increasing.

After the formation of the Federal Territory in 1987, Goa has seen changing the CM 20 times so far. It also includes the 2002 incident when Manohar Parrikar became 'Caretaker CM'. Due to the dissolution of the Assembly, Parrikar had to fulfill the responsibility of the Chief Minister for 65 days.


It is also necessary to mention the tenure of the remaining Chief Ministers here. Congress of Ravi S, Goa Naik is CM for 6 years. For the first time, Naik was only CM for 844 days. Apart from this, Churchill Alemao of Progressive Democratic Front has also been a CM for a short period of time. In 1990, Alemao had run the government for only 18 days. Even Manohar Parrikar, who remained CM for the fourth time in Goa, could not complete his term three times.

Of these, only Digambar Kamath has completed his term as CM. Kamath of Congress party, from 2007 to 2012, was Chief Minister of Goa. However, he could not save his government for the second innings. In 2012 the Congress party lost the assembly elections. Then under the leadership of Manohar Parrikar, the BJP formed the government.

From the tenure of Chief Ministers, it also shows that due to the unstable government, no party was able to achieve the previous majority in the Assembly after 1989.

Similar to other small states like Goa, there is similar political instability. In these small states of five or less Lok Sabha seats, the same CM has not played a long innings like the larger states. Take Arunachal Pradesh for example Here are 6 cms in the last decade. Of these, the existing CM Pema Khandu remains the most disputed.

Khandu took office on July 17, 2016 as a member of the Congress government, but joined the People's Party of Arunachal Pradesh (PPA) two months later. After this, suspended from the PPA and joined BJP. The interesting thing is that all this happened when he retained his position as the Chief Minister. Under President's rule, Arunachal Pradesh has seen a change in the ruling party five times with a period of 24 days.


After Arunachal, now talk about Nagaland. There were four chief ministers in the last decade. However, it is said that there was only one change in the ruling party during this period. This happened when members of the ruling party formed a new party in accordance with the Representation of the People Act and Counter-Opposition. Uttarakhand has also witnessed political instability. In the last decade, five different people took charge of CM in this state. The ruling party also saw political instability twice.

On the one hand, the demand of new small states has been warmed up, on the other hand the condition of older small states is getting worse. When Jharkhand was formed, it was hoped that the oppressed class of the state would get relief, but political instability and corruption did not allow this dream to be fulfilled. The use of making small states has proved to be unsuccessful.
