After completing her four-year jail-term for corruption and recovering from Covid-19, the sacked AIADMK chief V.K. Sasikala on Monday returned to Chennai from Bengaluru. Sasikala’s return is set to shake up Tamil Nadu politics ahead of polls due by May, even though she cannot contest for six years because of her conviction. She belongs to the Thevar community, a key vote bank for the AIADMK.

Despite issuing a warning from the AIADMK against using the party flag, she displayed its flag on her car during her return to Chennai. Sasikala, who was released on January 27 after serving 4 year jail term in disproportionate assets case, will be given a grand welcome at least at 32 places with 10,860 people in Chennai alone.

In January, Sasikala contracted Covid-19 infection and when she was released by prison authorities, she was still in the hospital, receiving treatment for the infection. Sasikala subsequently also tested negative for Covid-19 and was discharged from the hospital. She quarantined in a private resort located near Bengaluru airport and scheduled her visit to Chennai for Monday.

While she was in jail, she was removed as AIADMK chief and expelled by E Palaniswami, the man she had handpicked as Chief Minister, as part of a compromise he reached with rebel-turned-deputy O Panneerselvami. While she has challenged her removal in court, the Election Commission has acknowledged the OPS-headed group as the real AIADMK and has permitted them to use the party flag and symbol.

On Sunday night, the Krishnagiri police issued a warning notice to Sasikala against using the AIADMK flag on her car. This comes after the AIADMK lodged a complaint with the DGP against Sasikala for using the party flag on her car when she was released from the hospital. The police said in his statement that Sasikala cannot use the party flag since it’s a violation of law and warned of legal action.

The Krishnagiri police also issued instructions to Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazham (AMMK) saying no more than five vehicles should be allowed during Sasikala’s journey to Chennai and no posters, band or fireworks should be used when Sasikala enters into the district.

No CNG sale in Delhi today, Dealers Association calls for protest; here’s why

CNG sale in Delhi

The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has announced that there will be no CNG sale in Delhi on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm. The reason for the closure of CNG pumps is the non-reimbursement of the electricity bills by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL).

Delhi Association called for the protest as the reimbursement of the electricity bill of CNG pumps is not being done by IGL and is long overdue which has been causing them huge losses every day. The protest will affect about 250 CNG pumps in the capital.

In a letter last month, DPDA President Anurag Jain wrote, We have decided to go for no CNG sale on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a mark of protest. He further said the DPDA is forced to take this step due to the reluctance shown by IGL to pay the actual electricity reimbursement of CNG facilities to the dealers of Delhi who are incurring huge financial losses every month.

In Delhi, the electricity bill of the petrol pumps is paid by IGL, and CNG consumes a lot of electricity. DPDA says that IGL has not been paying the electricity bill for a long time, due to which they are suffering huge losses. And this is the reason the association has announced it will close CNG pumps today.

DPDA said there was a meeting organized with IGL in March 2022 to solve the issue, and IGL even agreed on the reimbursement of the electricity bill. After this meeting, the dealers were assured that the issue would be resolved in a month. DPDA said the issue has not been resolved yet and IGL didn’t fulfill its promise.

The non-fulfillment of DPDA’s demands has led them to take the step of closure of CNG pumps in Delhi on August 10. CNG is currently being sold at Rs 75.61 per kg in Delhi.

Mahagathbandhan, also known as the Grand Alliance, consists of political parties such as Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Indian National Congress (INC), Janata Dal (United), and Left parties including Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) Liberation-CPIML (Liberation), and Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPIM).

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, members of the Congress, and members of the Left Front joined Kumar as he made his claim for government formation before the governor by presenting the letter of support from the MLAs.

Nitish Kumar after his first session with the Governor said he has resigned and has informed all his MLAs. He split from the BJP for the second time in nine years. He said his resignation from the party was based on the feedback he received at an interaction with his party’s legislators.

Nitish Kumar charged the BJP with engaging in horse trading by offering some party leaders lucrative positions as ministers.
