Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Saturday expressed concern over the situation of the Indian economy, which is showing slower growth rates saying that the state of India’s economy is a cause of extreme concern.

Speaking at the Congress three-day Chintan Shivir in Udaipur, Chidambaram said a slower rate of growth has been the hallmark of the present government in the last 8 years and the post-pandemic recovery has been indifferent and halting.

In the Chintan Shivir, Congress has also demanded to extend the Goods and Services Tax (GST) compensation period for another three years in the wake of the current economic situation and poor financial health of the states. The consequences of the poorly drafted and unfairly implemented GST laws brought in by the Modi government in 2017 are there for everyone to see, the Congress said.

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram, who heads the panel on economy constituted by Congress president Sonia Gandhi to lead discussions at the three-day Chintan Shivir in Rajasthan’s Udaipur, accused the government of fuelling ruse of inflation by high taxes on petrol and diesel, and high administered prices, noting that inflation had risen to unexpected levels under the present government.

Chidambaram also pitched for a reset of economic policies to take liberalization forward and address inequalities and extreme poverty. The time is ripe for a comprehensive review of fiscal relations between the Centre and the states, he said.

Chidambaram said the Congress-led government ushered in a new era of liberalization in 1991. The country has reaped enormous benefits in terms of wealth creation, new businesses and new entrepreneurs, a huge middle class, millions of jobs, exports and lifting 27 crore people out of poverty during a 10-year period, he said.

After 30 years, it is felt that taking into account global and domestic developments, it may be necessary to contemplate a reset of the economic policies, Chidambaram said.

A panchayat organized by several right wing groups including Bajrang Dal and Vishva Hindu Parishad in Haryana’s Manesar on Sunday called for economic boycott of Muslims shopkeepers and vendors from the markets of their respective villages.

Issuing an ultimatum to the Haryana administration, the panchayat asked the people of Manesar, Dharuhera and Gurgaon to form village-level committees to economically boycott Muslims.

The panchayat members submitted a memorandum to a deputy magistrate stating that illegal immigrants must be evicted. There should be an immediate inquiry against illegal immigrants and those found staying illegally should be evicted, the memorandum mentioned.

In the memorandum, the organizers alleged that Muslims in their areas are involved in religious conversions and strict action should be taken against them who involved in such activities.

Several speakers at the Manesar panchayat called for an economic boycott of Muslim vendors and shopkeepers alleging that many juice shops and salons run by Muslims in Manesar had names of Hindu deities as part of a conspiracy.

Devender Singh, general secretary, VHP Manesar, said that the panchayat was called to raise Hindu society voices against growing religious fundamentalism and jihadist forces that have taken root in the country.

Hindus are being killed while many Rohingya, Bangladeshis and even Pakistanis are illegally staying in Gurgaon and Manesar by hiding their real identities and set up their businesses in various sectors, Singh claimed in his speech.

Giving one week ultimatum to administration to take actions against the culprits, the VHP general secretary said If there is no action, then Hindu society will take action. Another panchayat will be called at a larger scale and the future course of action will be decided, said Singh.

At the end, Singh said that the economic boycott of Muslims is the only solution.

Day after Udaipur tailor’s brutal daylight murder, several right-wing organizations including Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad was held a march to demand stringent punishment for accused Riyaz Attari and Ghous Mohammad.

In the viral video, the protesters can be heard raising provocative slogans against the Muslim community near Jama Masjid.

Taking suo motu cognizance of incident after videos of the rally went viral on social media, the Gurgaon police has booked the organisers of a protest march for allegedly raising abusive slogans and promoting enmity between communities.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal leader on Saturday slammed the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in Bihar over Centre’s massive security deployment outside the BJP offices and the party MLAs residence after Agnipath protests and asked is Bihar police incompetent?

In a series of tweets, Yadav alleged that the deployment of central paramilitary forces at BJP offices in Bihar was made without taking the state government into confidence.

The BJP doesn’t have faith in their own double engine government and is staying in a coalition with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) just for the sake of power. The Bihar government should clarify whether the police is so incompetent so as to warrant deployment of central forces at BJP offices?

Last month, Bihar witnessed massive protests over Agnipath scheme, the Centre’s contract based recruitment scheme to recruit 46000 Agniveers in Indian armed forces in coming years. However, the protests had turned violent in parts of Bihar, following which, the protesters has set trains on fire, vandalized railway stations and attacked BJP leaders’ offices, homes and cars.

The Agnipath protesters have not only attacked the house of Bihar BJP chief Sanjay Jaiswal but also vandalized the residence of Deputy Chief Minister Renu Devi. The protesters also vandalized several BJP offices in NDA-ruling Bihar.

The BJP high command has not convinced with the way Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar handled the situation during the protests.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Punjab Assembly had passed a resolution against the Centre’s Agnipath scheme saying it will destroy the basic fabric of the Indian Army.

Under the Centre’s Agnipath scheme, about 45,000 Agniveers aged between 17.5 to 21 years will be inducted into Indian armed forces for a 4-year tenure, followed by compulsory retirement without gratuity and pension benefits.
