Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday (Feb 23) announced that he would start an indefinite hunger strike demanding complete statehood for Delhi, starting from March 1.

“From 1st March I will begin a hunger strike. I am going to fast till we get statehood. I am ready to face death,” Kejriwal said in the assembly.

Accusing both the Congress and the BJP of “back-stabbing” Delhi,  Kejriwal said, “I want to tell the Prime Minister to handle Pakistan, which he has not been able to do, and give the Delhi Police and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi to the people of Delhi.”

“Even the British did not commit such atrocities. The people of Delhi pay Rs. 1.5 lakh crore as income tax and received only Rs. 325 crore from the centre,” Kejriwal said, calling the campaign “aar-paar ki ladai” (the final battle).[/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]Earlier this week, Kejriwal had in an appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked him to grant full statehood to Delhi. The AAP had also announced that it would undertake a door-to-door campaign in Delhi to tell people the ruling BJP at the centre had been doing injustice to them.

Kejriwal claimed the people of Delhi were facing “injustice and humiliation” since independence because the government elected by them lacked power to work for them.

“The elected government of Delhi cannot give people justice, work for them and take up development works because it lacks power and the central government obstructs its functioning. Is the value of Delhi voters less than other states?” he asked.

Kejriwal’s remarks came in the wake of a split-judgment by the Supreme Court on regulations of services in the national capital pertaining to the power tussle between the Delhi government and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.

A two-judge bench consisting of Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice AK Sikri disagreed on the jurisdiction of Centre and Delhi government over appointment and transfer of bureaucrats in Delhi but ruled unanimously that the Anti-Corruption Bureau will remain under the Centre’s control.

A larger bench will now take a call on who will have the final say on the transfer and appointment of bureaucrats in Delhi.

Meanwhile, former cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who lives in Delhi, said that while there are thousands of problems in the national capital, dharna was the solution which the CM could think of. Gambhir who takes stand on lot of social and national issues tweeted- “More than 2 crore people in Delhi…thousand problems.. and what a solution… Another CM @ArvindKejriwal special DHARNAA.. Shame ! (sic).”[/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]

Lok Sabha MP Danish Ali was suspended by Mayawati-led BSP on Saturday for allegedly indulging in anti party activities. He termed his suspension unfortunate and said he would continue to raise his voice against injustice and corruption.

Danish Ali took to X(formerly Twitter) after his suspension, Ali said he made all diligent efforts to strengthen the BSP and would continue to oppose the anti people policies of the central government. He thanked the part chief Mayawati, for making him the BSP Parliamentary party leader. Ali said if raising his voice against injustice was a crime, he was ready to face punishment.

Talking to the media in a press conference, Ali denied indulging in anti party activities and said he always walked the BSP’s line. On Friday Ali sided with the opposition and slammed the expulsion of Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mahua Moitra as a Lok Sabha MP. He slammed the BJP led central government, saying its brute majority in the Lower House did not mean it could throttle the opposition.

The BSP is not a member of the rulling BJP-led NDA or the Opposition INDIA bloc. The BSP on Saturday suspended its MP Danish Ali for allegedly indulging in anti party activities. Ali has been representing the Amroha Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh since 2019.

In a statement issued by the BSP national general secretary Satish Chandra Misra, Ali had been warned by the party many times in the past not to indulge in anti party activities.

After the Karnataka election Ali was given a ticket from Amroha and asked to contest from there due to Devegowda’s insistence. Deve Gowda had said the party had decided to suspend Ali with immediate effect.
