Nobel laureate Yunus speaks to Rahul Gandhi - Economy can take forward by helping the poor


Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday spoke to Nobel Prize winner Mohammad Yunus about the slowing economy and its impact on India due to Coronavirus.

 

New Delhi. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday spoke to Nobel laureate Mohammad Yunus in a series of talks about the slowing economy and its impact on India due to the Coronavirus crisis worldwide. . Let us tell you Yunus is the founder and noted economist of Bangladesh Grameen Bank. In the video released on Friday, Rahul asked Yunus several other questions, including the impact on Corona's rural economy. Rahul said- you understand the economy of the poor. How has Corona damaged it?

In response, Yunus said that I am already saying that the Corona crisis brought the evils of society to the surface. Poor, migrant, laborers are part of our society and the crisis of Corona brought everyone to the fore. They were considered part of the informal sector, which is not part of our economy. If we help them, then we can take the economy forward with them, but we are not doing so. If we talk about women, then they are considered the lowest in the society. Nobody asks them in the economic sector, but women have proved themselves.

After all, why don't we create an economy in the village itself - Younus
Let me tell you that Rahul Gandhi is in talks with veterans of the world about the impact of the worldwide lockdown due to the corona epidemic and the consequences that will occur later. This time, Congress leader migrants discussed the role of technology in returning to their home district and promoting an economic revolution in rural areas.
During this time, Rahul said that it is difficult for people like India and Bangladesh to see that small business is the future but the system is not looking. On this, Yunus said that in economic matters, we go like western countries. Therefore, poor and small businessmen were not taken care of. It has a lot of energy but governments do not consider them as part of the economy.

Rahul Gandhi has talked to these celebrities so far
Yunus said that the people of the village are sent to the city for jobs in the western countries. The same thing is happening in India. After all, why don't we create an economy in the village itself. Yunus said that today everybody has the technology, yet people are being sent to the city. The government should be where the people are. They should be given work there.

Rahul said that we took a lot from the West but making the village strong is the model of both our countries. Mahatma Gandhi also said that we have to take forward our rural economy. Yunus said the Corona crisis stalled the economic machinery. Now people are thinking that the same situation will happen again. If this happens then it will be very bad. Corona has given us a chance to do something new. We have to do something different so that we can change the society by solving environmental issues

Let me tell you that in the last few months, Rahul Gandhi has been communicating with celebrities from different fields about the impact of the Kovid-19 crisis and ways to deal with it. In this series, he also spoke to former US Deputy Secretary of State Nicholas Burns, industrialist Rajiv Bajaj, public health professional Ashish Jha and Swedish epidemiologist Johan Gisek, distinguished economist Raghuram Rajan and Nobel Prize winner Abhijit Banerjee.

 




Will have to give information about the gold kept at home Modi government is bringing new scheme


Around 25,000 tonnes of gold is kept in people's homes in India. A large part of it is of illegal gold. It is now reported that the government is working on an amnesty program to reduce tax evasion and reduce dependence on gold imports.

 

New Delhi. The Ministry of Finance is now considering an amnesty program (illegal-forgiveness program) for illegal gold held in households in India. Through this program, the government wants to curb tax evasion and reduce dependence on imports. A business news website has written a report citing people associated with the case. In the proposal presented before Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the government has said that the government will appeal to the people to inform the tax department about illegally kept yellow metal. For this, they have to pay levy or penalty. However, this proposal is still in the initial stage. The government is still deliberating with the officials concerned.

PM Modi gave information about three plans in the year 2015, with the consent of the states, about 25,000 tons of gold kept in homes, physical gold by institutions and reducing imports so that alternative means of investment can be found. . However, this plan could not be popular because a class did not want to leave the gold kept with it. A large part of the gold kept in homes is in the form of jewelery and wears it on special occasions. However, there was another class who feared that they would be punished by the tax department.

Government will have to keep a part of gold
In this Bloomberg report, officials have been quoted saying that those who will give details of their gold, they must keep a part of their gold legally with the government for some time. In another media report on October 30 last year, it was said that even during that time the government was working on such a program. However, during that time the tax department had dismissed reports of any such program.

Estimates of rise in gold prices this year
Let us know that this year, gold prices have seen an increase of up to 30 percent so far. The current corona virus epidemic has helped it grow even more. In fact, in an environment of uncertainty about the global economy, investors have been preferring the investment option. Recently, Goldman Sachs has said in a report that in the coming times, governments around the world are going to announce the next relief package. In such a situation, bullion market will see a boom. Goldman Sachs has estimated the price of gold at $ 2,300 an oz.

Big fall in silver on Thursday
Meanwhile, the price of 10 grams of gold in Delhi has increased by Rs 118 to Rs 53,742 on Thursday due to the weakness in the rupee against the US dollar. However, the price of silver declined. The price of one kilogram of silver in Delhi has come down from Rs 66,484 to Rs 64,100. During this period, prices have fallen by Rs 2,384.

He has three sisters and is the only son of his parents.

12 times in 5 months: HC delays Kafeel Khan hearing


“Mota bhai teaches us to become Hindu or Muslim but not human beings.” Government request for detention of UP doctor Kafeel Khan under National Security Act quoted December 2019 speech he made, criticising Home Minister Amit Shah and the Citizenship (Amendment) Act

 

SAURABH SHARMA/101 REPORTERS

Lucknow: For the 12th time in five months, the Allahabad High Court on 27 July 2020 deferred a hearing for Kafeel Khan, a doctor incarcerated in Mathura jail for a speech he delivered at Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh Muslim University in December 2019.

“We are now feeling helpless, and we don’t know what to do next,” elder brother Adeel Ahmad Khan told Article 14. The Supreme Court on 18 March, based on a petition from his mother, transferred Kafeel Khan’s case to the Allahabad High Court.

Jailed for a speech
Khan has been in jail since 29 January or 180 days for a speech in which he criticised the government during the protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019. He was granted bail on 10 February by the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Aligarh but wasn’t allowed to leave jail. Three days later, the UP government of Yogi Adityanath brought charges under the 40-year-old National Security Act, 1980, against the former government lecturer and paediatrician.

The NSA, under which Kafeel Khan is detained, does not define the term “national security”. What it does is define situations in which an order for detention under the NSA may be passed. These include threats to the defence or security of India.


 
Section 3 (2) of the Act, under which Khan was detained, empowers the government to detain a person “with a view to preventing him from acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of the state or from acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order or from acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of supplies and services essential to the community it is necessary so to do, make an order directing that such person be detained”.

Khan has been deemed to be a threat to public order.

Yet, there is no instance where public order has been threatened or has been disrupted due to Khan, wrote lawyer Sarim Naved on Article 14. According to the request for the issue of detention orders under the NSA, Khan allegedly made a speech critical of ‘Mota Bhai’ (a reference to Home Minister Amit Shah) and the CAA. Khan said in his speech that “Mota bhai teaches us to become Hindu or Muslim but not human beings.”

Jailed in the pandemic
“I don’t know why I am being punished,” Khan wrote in a recent letter from his cramped jail barrack. “With just one attached toilet, 125-150 inmates, the smell of their sweat and urine mixed with unbearable heat due to electricity cuts makes life hell over here: A living hell indeed.”

“There are many things that can go wrong with my brother in jail,” said Adeel Ahmad Khan. “The jail is overcrowded and he may get murdered. The government is also creating a lot of pressure, and Kafeel can take any extreme step owing to it. Secondly, the coronavirus is also spreading in jails and my brother is at risk.”


 
If the hearing is again postponed on the next date, 5 August, then Kafeel Khan’s wife, Shabista Khan, who is also a doctor, will protest in front of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly in Lucknow, Adeel Ahmad Khan said.

The Congress party said on 26 July that it was collecting signatures from UP’s districts demanding that Khan be released. On Twitter, doctors have been issuing video testimonials such as this and this urging the government to release Khan as soon as possible.

UP Govt. suspended Kafeel Khan
Kafeel Khan was suspended from UP government service when the sudden cessation of oxygen supply on 10 August 2017 killed more than 60 children at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College in the eastern UP town of Gorakhpur, 270 km northeast of state capital Lucknow. After he spent almost nine months in prison for alleged medical negligence, a government-appointed inquiry exonerated Kafeel Khan in September 2019.

“Questioning government policy is not a big deal,” Harjit Singh Bhatti, the president of the Progressive Medicos & Scientist Forum, told Article 14. “This was not such a big issue that the NSA was needed against him. He should be released immediately.”

“There is a threat to Dr Khan’s life in jail as the coronavirus is spreading, and jails are overcrowded,” said Bhatti. “There are chances that he may contract some infection. He is not any hardened criminal who will become a threat to public safety after coming out of jail. We will speak to the IMA (Indian Medical Association) regarding our demand for his release.”

“Dr Khan got a clean chit in the internal inquiry but he was suspended again, then he was jailed, then freed on bail, then another case was filed against him and he was put back in jail,” said Bhatti. “All this means that the government is deliberately getting after him.”


Anand Rai, an Indore-based surgeon and activist said Kafeel Khan was being punished for being Muslim.

“The boy (Dr Kafeel Khan) is being targeted for being Muslim,” said Rai. “I have been monitoring him from the last two-three years and his only fault is that he is Muslim, and he got famous for trying to save the lives of kids at BRD Medical college in Gorakhpur, which the government could not digest.”

Mayawati engaged in election preparations, brotherhood committee dissolved, decision to give place to upper cast in parent organization


Brahmin, Kshatriya, Backward and Muslim leaders who were included in the Brotherhood Committee have been given responsibility in the parent organization. Earlier, only Dalit leaders had a place in the original organization.

 

Lucknow. Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati has started preparations for the assembly elections. In this regard, they have made many changes at the organizational level. In a big experiment, he has decided to give a big responsibility in the parent organization to the people associated with the Brahmin and other castes of upper castes in the original organizations of the party. With this, all the BSP's brotherhood committees have also been dissolved. Mayawati has disbanded the Brahmin, Kshatriya Backward Caste Brotherhood Committee. Brahmin, Kshatriya, Backward and Muslim leaders who were included in the Brotherhood Committee have been given responsibility in the parent organization. Interestingly, earlier Dalit leaders used to be responsible in the BSP's parent organization. In such a situation, Mayawati was also accused of not giving preference to other castes. In view of this, Mayawati has taken this step under the policy of not offended any caste in the assembly elections.

Actually, Bahujan Samaj Party is considered a party of Dalits, OBCs and backward castes. However, the number of upper cast leaders in this is also considerable. Especially in the upper cast, many big leaders of the Brahmin caste are in the BSP, but looking at the election results of the last two Lok Sabha and one Vidhan Sabha, the BSP's performance has been very poor. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, even the BSP's account could not be opened. At the same time, Mayawati's party also had a very poor performance in the 2017 assembly elections. The BSP had got only 19 seats. With this, his vote percentage had fallen significantly. At the same time, he fought the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in alliance with the SP. Mayawati was greatly benefited in this election and 10 of her MPs reached Delhi after winning the election.

Assembly elections in 2022
Let us know that in the year 2022 assembly elections are going to be held in Uttar Pradesh. The BJP is currently in power with a thumping majority. The matter of concern in front of Mayawati is that among her traditional voters (Dalits, OBCs and backward castes), the BJP has made a dent. In such a situation, Mayawati's eyes are now set on the upper cast, so that the balance of vote percentage can be maintained. This is the reason why he has also given responsibility to the upper cast leaders in the parent organization.
