Deve Gowda to contest Rajya Sabha elections


Deve Gowda to contest Rajya Sabha elections

Bengaluru: Former prime minister and JD(S) patriarch HD Deve Gowda, who had on multiple occasions declared he would not contest any election, on Monday changed his mind and decided to contest the June 19 Rajya Sabha polls from Karnataka. He will be filing his nominations on Tuesday, his son and former CM HD Kumaraswamy said.

He said his father took the decision to once more contest following a request made by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, several national leaders and party legislators.

HDK tweeted: “Thanks to Sri Deve Gowda for agreeing to everyone’s consensus. From the people, former prime minister Deve Gowda has seen successes and defeats. By the people, he has acquired higher positions. It was not an easy task to persuade DeveGowda to enter the RS fray,” he said.

The JD(S), which has 34 seats in the assembly, is not in a position to win a seat in Rajya Sabha on its own. But in a tactical move, the Congress decided to give its surplus votes to the former PM. The BJP, which too has surplus votes, decided not to put up a third candidate, making his victory easy.

If he wins, this will be the second Rajya Sabha entry for 87-year-old Gowda, the first time being in 1996 as PM.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha poll, Gowda was defeated in Tumakuru constituency by BJP’s GS Basavaraj by over 13,000 votes.

BJP fileds Kadadi, Gasti

Meanwhile, the BJP sprang a surprise by confirming the names of Eranna Kadadi and Ashok Gasti as the party’s nominees for the two Rajya Sabha seats. The announcement shocked senior leaders as several prominent front-runners were sidelined to pave way for second-rung leaders within the party.

Eranna Kadadi, 55, who began his political career in 1989, has strong roots in the RSS and worked his way up the BJP ladder.

Ashok Gasti, 55, hails from Raichur and also came through the ranks in the BJP after a stint with the ABVP.

The Congress has fielded veteran leader and a former leader of the opposition in the 16th Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, who on Monday filed his nomination as the party’s candidate for the June 19 Rajya Sabha polls from Karnataka.

FIR against Churu's Sardarshar hospital as chat against Muslim community goes viral


FIR against Churu's Sardarshar hospital as chat against Muslim community goes viral

Jaipur: A private hospital in Churu, Rajasthan faced a probe for allegations related to discrimination against Muslim patients about treatment of COVID-19. The matter came to the fore when screenshots of an internal WhatsApp gro­up chat went viral. The hospital owner has apologised on Facebook while the police initiated a probe. An FIR was filed against 3 persons.

The hospital, Shrichand Baradiya Rog Nidan Kendra, is in Sardarshahar town. Controversy arose when screenshots of the chats on a group for staff members by the name of ‘Bardia Rise’ went viral on June 5. As per the chat, the hospital staff would not attend to Muslim patients. Two days later on June 7, a complaint was sent to the police control room at Sardarshahar by Maqbool Khan, the district president of Muslim Parishad Sanstan.

It is also alleged that a participant of the chats is Dr Bhagwati Choudhary, wife of hospital owner Dr Sunil Choudhary. The chats revealed the staff would not perform X-ray of Muslim patients. It also said Muslims coming to the OPD would not be provided treatment.

Police booked 3 persons — Dr Bhagwati Baradiya (Chou­dhary), Lalit Singh and Ankita. The charges include vilification on basis of religion and intention to incite people to commit a crime against other community under IPC along with charges of making and circulating false alarm or warning about a disaster leading to panic.

Even before the FIR was lodged, Dr Sunil Choudhary apologised on Facebook, which read, “I apologise for the chat of my hospital staff that is going viral on social media. My staff and I have never had intentions to harm the religious sentiments of any religious community. We have no intention of denying treatment to any community. If you have felt hurt by what happened, my staff and I apologise to you. We wish to emphasise that the hospital will not give you any cause of complaint.”

Sardarshahar had recorded its first COVID-19 case when members of the Tablighi Jamaat who attended the Nizamuddin Margaz tested positive. The chat was reportedly held on April 8.

The police are investigating all aspects. “We had received a complaint with screenshots of a chat on a WhatsApp group. The complaint says chat messages are communal and discriminatory in nature. We are investigating the matter,” said SI Ramesh Pannu of Sardarshahar police station. “The police are trying to ascertain the authenticity of the chats and identity of persons who made the screenshots viral. An FIR has been registered,” added Pannu.

The Delhi Chief Minister said that the state government has launched an app to stop the black marketing of beds. "We launched a mobile App to stop the black marketing of beds. We thought of making the information about number of beds and ventilators in hospitals transparent. There was uproar over it as if we committed a crime," Arvind Kejriwal said.

He, however, added that most of the private hospitals in Delhi were good and only a couple of them were indulging in such malpractice.

The government is talking to the owners of private hospitals to determine their problems in reserving 20 per cent of their beds for COVID-19 patients, he said. The chief minister also said that testing of COVID-19 has not been stopped in Delhi as reported by a section of media.

He said that currently 36 government and private laboratories were doing test of the novel coronavirus. Action was taken against six labs for irregularities, he added.
