After Jammu and Kashmir political parties met the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Delhi earlier this week, the Centre has now invited parties and civil society members from Kargil and Ladakh for talks on July 1.

The party have been invited for talks with the Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy in the first week of July.

After Centre’s invitation to Ladakh political parties, Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal had said in a tweet that the Gupkar alliance did not have the right or authority to speak on behalf of the people of Ladakh. His comments linked to the PM Modi’s all party meet with Jammu and Kashmir leaders.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah had earlier said in a tweet that the Central government is committed to ensure all round development of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the future of Jammu and Kashmir was discussed and the delimitation exercise and peaceful elections are important milestones in restoring statehood as promised in Parliament.

PM Modi’s meeting with 14 Jammu and Kashmir leaders was the maiden political exercise between the Centre and mainstream Jammu and Kashmir politicians after the abrogation of Article 370 and the division of the state into two union territories in August 2019.

On August 5, 2019, the central government withdrew Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under the Article 370 and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir with a legislative assembly and Ladakh without one. The move led to the imposition of restrictions on several political leaders and activists in the Kashmir Valley. Gradually, authorities lifted the curbs and released politicians under detention.

BJP leader Shrikant Tyagi

Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shrikant Tyagi was booked on Saturday by the Noida Police for allegedly threatening a woman at the Grand Omax society in Noida.

A shocking video went viral on Friday where the woman can be heard saying the BJP leader used bad words for her, for her husband and even for her children. He pushed her and allegedly threatened her with dire consequences. The incident took place when the woman objected to the plantation of some trees by Shrikant Tyagi in her housing society.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Women Safety) Ankita Sharma Said that Shrikant Tyagi was booked under section 354 of the Indian Panel Code. The panel describes that whoever assaults or uses criminal force on any woman, intending to outrage or knowing it to be likely that he will thereby outrage her modesty shall be punished with imprisonment of two years, with a fine, or with both.

Shrikant Tyagi claims himself as a national executive member of BJP’s Kisan Morcha and national co-coordinator of the Yuva Kisan Samiti. However, the BJP denied the claim of Shrikant Tyagi.

BJP MP and Kisan Morcha chief Rajkumar Chahar said that Shrikant Tyagi was not an executive member of the BJP’s farmer unit. There was no Yuva Committee of Kisan Morcha too. Chahar also demanded his punishment as per the law of the land.
