Delhi Mayor elections

The process of elections for the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Standing Committee members of Delhi has begun at the Civic Centre of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. First of all 10 nominated members were sworn in. AAP leaders protested against it and raised slogans. On the other hand, the BJP leader also raised slogans of Jai Shri Ram and Bharat Mata Ki Jai. Meanwhile, BJP MP Hansraj Hans claimed that the mayor would be from the BJP.

AAP has fielded Shelly Oberoi and BJP has fielded Rekha Gupta for the post of mayor. In such a situation, it is certain that the national capital will get a woman mayor. The first meeting of the House after the MCD elections was held on January 6, but the election of the mayor could not be held due to the uproar in the house. Today again the same situation seems to be happening but the police security has been beefed up so as to conduct the elections smoothly.

AAP leader Mukesh Goyal said that the constitutional way is to first administer the oath to the elected councilors, then to the nominated councillors. but that did not happen. BJP leader Shikha Rai said that the proceedings of the House will start from where it was left.

Firstly, the nominated councilor Vinod then Laxman was administered oath in the House. After this oath was administered to Mukesh Mann, Sunil Chauhan, Rajkumar Bhatia, Sanjay Tyagi. After Manoj Kumar Jain, Rohtash Kumar, Shweta Kamal Khatri, the oath-taking of the councilors who won the election from ward number one started.

Upendra Kushwaha

Janata Dal (United) parliamentary board chairman Upendra Kushwaha on Tuesday lashed out at Bihar’s chief minister Nitish Kumar and said the CM is unable to exercise his own volition.

Speaking at a press conference, he also cited it to be the reason for JD(U)’s vulnerability.

Kushwaha further said he has been asked to clarify what he meant by claiming his own share in the party that Nitish Kumar demanded at the unforgettable rally of 1994 when Lalu Prasad Yadav didn’t want to give their leaders due.

He further dismissed Nitish Kumar’s claims that he was appointed as the Chairman of the JDU Parliamentary Board out of respect. Even after being the Chairman of the Parliamentary Board, he cannot nominate a member and no attention was paid to his suggestions, claimed Kushwaha.

On Monday, Kushwaha alleged that his convoy was attacked at Jagdishpur in the Bhojpur district of Bihar. Reports said the JD(U) leader was travelling to Buxar from Bhojpur to attend a private event.

In a tweet, Kushawa alleged that a few people started pelting stones at his convoy while it was passing Nayka Tola crossing and he managed to escape. He also informed that the people who attacked his convoy covered their faces.

However, Bhojpur superintendent of police Pramod Kumar dismissed the claim and said there was a fight between supporters of Kushwaha and his opposition.

In 2017, Upendra Kushwaha merged his Rashtriya Lok Samata and returned to the JD(U). He alleged that parliamentary board chiefs are unable to exercise their powers. He split with Nitish Kumar’s party twice. After the split in 2013, his party went down and suffered defeats in multiple elections including the Lok Sabha elections of 2019 and the assembly elections of 2020.

Kushwaha started his political career in 1985 and served as National General-Secretary, of Yuva Janata Dal, from 1988–93.

Gandhi’s marathon trek concluded with the unfurling of the national flag at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk on Sunday and a mega rally is scheduled today before the Wayanad MP wraps up his yatra.

The former summer capital of the erstwhile state was sealed in view of the yatra and movement of common citizens was restricted, police had said on Sunday.

Rahul Gandhi, accompanied by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and other senior Congress leaders, resumed the march from Pantha Chowk at 11 am and reached Lal Chowk around noon where Gandhi hoisted the tricolour.

Earlier, Congress had temporarily halted the march on Friday, January 27, near Qazigund, the gateway to Kashmir valley, due to an alleged breach of security and mismanagement of crowd by the erstwhile state’s administration.

Congress leaders alleged that Rahul Gandhi after crossing Qazigund, started his march towards south Kashmir’s Vessu, but the party workers noticed that the outer cordon maintained by the Jammu and Kashmir police, was lifted all of a sudden.

However, the J&K Police has refuted the allegations of a security lapse. In a series of tweets, the police claimed that organizers of the march had not told them that such a large gathering would be joining them from Banihal and full security arrangements were in place and deployments were done as per SOPs.
