Asaduddin Owaisi

Agnipath scheme that has been announced by the Central govt for the youth has been drawing flak from several sections. Amid this, the youth is seen on the streets protesting against the scheme. In support of the youth, AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi shared a series of tweets and requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to listen to the youth.

Owaisi said that why does PM Modi want that the young ex-serviceman to stand in the job line outside the Adani and Ambani house or do chowkidari work outside the BJP offices, after fighting for the country for four years.

In another tweet, he wrote that this government will save a few thousand crore rupees by playing with the future of the youth and the strength of the army, but it will never benefit the army personnel or the poor farmer, the benefit will be given to those two crony businessmen.

Owaisi further stated that PM Modi asked for 50 days after demonetisation, and it has not been completed yet. He said that we all witnessed the result of the lockdown. But it is the government that wants to repeat its mistakes, who just wants to go against the youth of the country.

Concluding this, he said PM Modi, youth are the future of India, not a retired IAS officer who has repeatedly taken extensions with him. He further requested that it is time to listen to the voice of the youth and should fulfil their demand, they should immediately withdraw this Agniveer scheme.

Earlier, Owaisi said whether bulldozer would be used to demolish the houses of those who are protesting against the Centre’s Agnipath scheme.

Karnataka election: Yediyurappa’s son likely to contest against former CM Siddaramaiah in Varuna



BJP stalwart and former Karnataka chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s son is likely to contest against veteran Congress leader Siddaramaiah from the Varuna seat in Mysuru in upcoming elections in the state.

Speaking at an emergency presser in Bengaluru, held day after the Election Commission announced elections in Karnataka will be held on May 10,  BS Yediyurappa—the spearhead of BJP’s poll campaign in Karnataka—revealed that high-level discussions by the saffron party’s top brass are being held to decide if his son BY Vijayendra, will be fielded from Varuna—a seat currently represented by former chief minister and Congress veteran Siddaramaiah’s son Yathindra.

Yediyurappa, who is currently in the eye of the storm over the internal reservation issue among Scheduled Castes (SC) stood by the BJP regime’s decision to implement the AJ Sadashiva panel commission’s recommendations, saying that the reservation quota for Lingayats and other communities was justified and no injustice has been done to Muslims either as they will now get reservation in the Economically Weaker Sections quota.

Yediyurappa also claimed that the Congress will not get more than 70 seats in the 224-seat Karnataka assembly.

On Monday, hundreds of protesters belonging to the Banjara community attacked the home and office of BS Yediyurappa in Shivamogga area of the state during a massive demonstration against a recent reservation decree by the Basavaraj Bommai government in the state.

Karnataka’s Basavaraj Bommai-led BJP regime has decided to implement the AJ Sadashiva panel commission report on internal reservation among SC’s. Based on the commission’s report, the Bommai government has recommended to the Centre a new breakup of the reservation for Scheduled Castes in education and jobs.

The recommendations suggest that out of the 17 percent reservation for the SC community, 6 percent be earmarked for Scheduled Castes (left), 5.5 percent for Scheduled Castes (right), 4.5 percent for “touchables” and one percent to others.

The Banjara community has demanded the Karnataka government to withdraw the proposed amendments as they would stand to lose out if the recommendations are implemented.
