Arvind Kejriwal demands Alka Lamba’s resignation in row over Rajiv Gandhi resolution



[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Alka Lamba was asked to resign from the party on Friday (Dec 21) after a controversy erupted over a resolution in the Delhi Assembly seeking withdrawal of the Bharat Ratna awarded to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi over his failure to curb the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Lamba was adamant on passing the resolution recommending the withdrawal of the late Prime Minister’s award; the legislator says her decision to not support it angered party colleagues.  “The party has asked for my resignation. I’m ready to resign but Rajiv Gandhi has sacrificed a lot for country and I didn’t support the proposal of taking back his Bharat Ratna. I’ve been asked to resign because I stood against the decision of the party,” news agency ANI quoted Lamba as saying.

“It cannot be an amendment as it was read out and given as a part of the resolution that was tabled in the House for the first time. If AAP legislators want to amend the resolution by withdrawing the part about Rajiv Gandhi, it could be done in another session of the House,” said an official requesting anonymity.

Earlier, Saurabh Bharadwaj, AAP legislator from Greater Kailash, said the lines about Gandhi were not a part of the resolution placed before the House and distributed among the members.

“Lines about late Rajiv Gandhi were added by one MLA in his handwriting proposing an addition/amendment about late Rajiv Gandhi. Amendments cannot be passed in this manner,” he said in a tweet.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]He then said that the handwritten amendment was added by Malviya Nagar MLA Somnath Bharti and passed on to Jarnail Singh.

CM Eknath Shinde says Maharashtra govt will protect Sharad Pawar after NCP chief gets death threat on Twitter

Shinde said he has spoken to senior police officers and given instructions for investigation into the tweets. Shinde said Sharad Pawar’s safety will be fully taken care of by the state.



Sharad Pawar

Maharahstra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday took serious note of the death threat issued to Nationalist Congress Party President Sharad Pawar earlier today by unknown persons.

Shinde said he has spoken to senior police officers and given instructions for investigation into the tweets. Shinde said Sharad Pawar’s safety will be fully taken care of by the state.

A Twitter user posted saying the NCP chief will meet the same fate as rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar, who was shot dead in Pune on August 20, 2013.

In his reaction, Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said threatening any leader or overstepping the bounds of civility while expressing oneself on social media will not be tolerated.

Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule, the Baramati Member of Parliament, met Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar and demanded immediate action. She submitted printouts of the death threat to the police. Earlier on Friday, Sule told media that Sharad Pawar has received threats through a website. Claiming such actions as “low-level politics”, Sule urged Union Home Minister Amit Shah and the Maharashtra Home Minister to look into the matter.

Sharad Pawar is a critical leader for the Opposition formation in the run-up to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. The veteran leader has been a bridge for several regional parties in their interaction with former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

Pawar had himself outed the challenge within the NCP posed by several people, including nephew Ajit Pawar, by threatening to resign as NCP president. Grassroots leaders of the NCP prevailed upon Pawar not to resign from the party leadership, thereby stalemating potential plans for the NCP to bail out of the Maha Vikas Aghadi and ally itself with the BJP.

Pawar will be attending the Opposition jamboree in Patna, Bihar on June 23 where senior opposition leaders from a range of parties will be attending. The meet which was initially slated for June 12 had to be called off since Rahul Gandhi was away on his US trip.
