Twelve people, including 6 retired judges of the Supreme Court and High Court on Tuesday wrote to the Chief Justice NV Ramana demanding to take suo motu cognizance on the Uttar Pradesh government’s bulldozer action and illegal arrests of Muslim protesters across cities in UP.

In the letter, they also demanded to intervene in the wake of incidents of violence and repression by the state authorities on citizens. Calling it a mockery of law, the letter accused the Uttar Pradesh administration’s tactics of bulldozing properties of the protesters.

Besides former Supreme Court judges B Sudarshan Reddy, V Gopala Gowda and AK Ganguly, the letter, signed by three former High Court judges and six lawyers, has urged the top court to stop the deteriorating law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh.

The coordinated manner in which the police and development authorities have acted have clearified that the demolitions is a form of collective extra-judicial punishment, the letter said. It also said that UP Chief Minister’s statements sanctioning action that sets an example further emboldened the police to torture protestors.

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after he claimed eight crore jobs in three to four years has silenced those spreading fake news about unemployment.

The Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha has accused PM Modi of spinning a web of lies about job creation in Mumbai on July 13.

Hitting out at PM Modi, the Congress chief reminded the Prime Minister what he said while announcing NRA – National Recruitment Agency. In August 2020, Kharge said, PM Modi stated that NRA would prove to be a boon for crores of youth.

Kharge further reminded what PM Modi also said through the Common Eligibility Test, it will eliminate multiple examinations and save precious time as well as resources. It will also give a big boost to transparency.

Questioning the Modi government, Kharge asked why has NRA not conducted a single exam in the last 4 years. He wondered despite allocating Rs 1,517.57 crore to NRA, only Rs 58 crore has been spent in 4 years.

Was NRA deliberately kept inactive to deprive SC, ST, OBC, and EWS youth of their reservation rights? the Congress chief charged. NTA committed fraud, paper leaks, and scams, and NRA didn’t even conduct the exam. BJP-RSS has taken up the task of ruining the education system and destroying the future of the youth, he slammed Centre.

The Congress chief response comes a day after PM Modi cited a recent Reserve Bank of India report on employment, saying that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s commitment to stability and growth.

The Prime Minister took a jibe at the Opposition and said that the creation of eight crore new jobs in the past three to four years has silenced those who are spreading false narratives about unemployment.

PM Modi added that those spreading false narratives are enemies of investment, infrastructure development, and the country’s growth. He also said that Opposition policies betray the youth and hinder employment, adding that he said now Opposition is being exposed as people reject their lies.
