Announcing his resignation, Sinha tweeted he is grateful to Mamata Banerjee for the honour and prestige she bestowed on him in the Trinamool Congress. Now a time has come when for a larger national cause he must step aside from the party to work for greater opposition unity. He confident that she approves of the step, he tweeted.

Yashwant Sinha, who has served as India’s finance and foreign minister, had quit the BJP in 2018. He has been the vice president of the Trinamool Congress.

While the Opposition seems to be in a bit of a struggle to pick their candidate for the Presidential polls, the BJP is set to hold its parliamentary board meeting in Delhi on Tuesday where it is likely to finalise its nominee for the election slated to be held on July 18, sources said.

Sinha’s name was discussed by the opposition leaders on Monday. Former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi had became the third proposed face, apart from NCP chief Sharad Pawar and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, to decline the request of the joint Opposition.

Last week, Mamata Banerjee had been invited for a meeting with 22 non-BJP leaders in Delhi.

The NCP, Trinamool Congress and other opposition parties was held a meeting on June 15 to build a consensus to field its joint presidential candidate against the NDA for the July polls.

At Tuesday’s meeting, the AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi was also been invited and party’s Aurangabad MP was attended the meeting. He also thanked the NCP chief Sharad Pawar for the kind invitation.

The process is underway to elect a new president. It was started from June 15 and the last date for filing of nominations is June 29.

In surprise move, Ashok Gehlot invites Gautam Adani to Invest Rajasthan Summit

Amid a political fight for the president post in Congress, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot today invited famous businessman and Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani to Invest Rajasthan Summit in Jaipur. The BJP called it a sign of revolt within the party.

Senior BJP leader Amit Malviya wrote on Twitter that it was another sign of revolt and brewing discontent against the Gandhis. Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot invited Gautam Adani to the investor summit. He was given a seat right next to the CM. This was an open message to Rahul Gandhi, who doesn’t tire of berating Adani-Ambani, to back off.

Addressing the investment summit, Gautam Adani said that the Adani Group invested over Rs 35,000 crore across multiple industrial sectors in Rajasthan. Continuing their investment in the renewable business, another 10,000 MW with an investment of Rs 50,000 crore was under implementation.

Gautam Adani also promised that they would give full cooperation in the construction of a cricket stadium in Udaipur. They also discussed which districts in the state did not have a medical college, and how they could help the state in this direction

He further said that combining all ongoing and future investments, they anticipated investing an additional Rs 65,000 Crore in Rajasthan over the next five to seven years and creating over 40,000 direct and indirect jobs.

Nearly three weeks ago, 82 Congress MLAs sent resignations to the governor. Reports said that they were pro-Gehlot MLAs and did not want to support Sachin Pilot as the next Rajasthan CM. However, Gehlot denied these allegations.

The Rajasthan CM also made a separate argument for the next Congress president. Supporting senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, he said that Mallikarjun Kharge has the experience to strengthen the Congress and would emerge as a clear winner in the party’s presidential poll. He further said that Shashi Tharoor was from the elite class.

Ashok Gehlot argued that Shashi Tharoor was from the elite class but the kind of experience which was needed to strengthen the party at booth, block and district levels, was with Kharge and could not be compared to Shashi Tharoor. Therefore, it would naturally be a one-sided contest for Kharge.

Bharat Jodo Yatra: Congress puts up Savarkar’s posters in Karnataka

Vinayak Damodar Savarkar

The Indian National Congress is again in controversy for allegedly putting up freedom fighter and Hindutva ideologue Vinayak Damodar Savarkar’s photo in its poster of the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Karnataka. Reports said that the poster was placed in the Mandya area of the state. It featured V D Savarkar along with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Congress president DK Shivkumar.

Sharing this poster on Twitter, senior BJP leader Amit Malviya wrote that after Kerala, Congress put up Savarkar’s posters in Karnataka. It was finally dawning on the Congress that Savarkar’s contributions and worldview defined today’s India. And it was Nehru, who was a coward, unable to take the hardships in Nabha jail, who wrote an apology to the British.

However, Congress MLA Nalapad Ahmed Haris claimed that this was done by miscreants and not them. They have filed a complaint in the Mandya district.

The BJP has publicised VD Savarkar’s ideology and promoted him as a party’s icon in the state. On August 22, former Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa flagged off a Veer Savarkar Rath Yatra in the Mysuru region. The party also decided that Savarkar would be featured in Ganesh Puja pandals to propagate that he was a revered freedom fighter for the right-wing ideology.

Former Karnataka Chief Miniter Siddaramaiah had said that the one who pleaded (with) British officers to get himself released from jail, got a position in the front row. But, Baba Saheb, who fought for freedom by being the voice of marginalised sections, got placed in the last row.

This was not the first case featuring VD Savarkar in the Congress’ poster. On September 21, a Bharat Jodo Yatra poster in Kerla featured him in a line-up with other freedom fighters of India.

Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra began from Kanyakumari on September 8.

Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday engaged in a Twitter spat with Kashmir Police after the People’s Democratic Party Chief claimed that she was placed under house arrest during Home Minister Amit Shah’s Jammu and Kashmir visit yesterday.

Mufti claimed she had been placed under house arrest at her residence at Srinagar’s Gupkar Road and was not being allowed to go for a wedding in Pattan near Srinagar.

The police refuted Mufti’s house arrest claim and said she was free to travel anywhere. Responding to her claim after 40 minutes, the Police tweeted that there were no restrictions on her travel to Pattan. She herself had locked the gate from inside, the Srinagar police claimed in the tweet.

Taking to Twitter, Mufti said since Amit Shah was travelling to Baramulla, 54 km from Srinagar, in north Kashmir and addressing a public rally there, she had been stopped from attending a wedding of a party worker in Pattan, 27 km from Srinagar, she claimed in her tweet.

While Home Minister is going around Kashmir beating drums of normalcy, she was under house arrest for simply wanting to visit Pattan for a worker’s wedding, she said in a tweet tagging the Home Minister and Lt Governor Manoj Sinha.

Mufti also said if an ex-CM’s fundamental rights can be suspended so easily, one can’t even imagine the plight of a commoner. She also shared pictures of the alleged locking main gate of her residence.

During his ongoing three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Amit Shah assessed the security situation in a meeting held with senior officials in Srinagar on Wednesday.

As of now, Shah has addressed a rally in Rajouri and will be addressing another public meeting in Baramulla today.
