PM Modi to address seven rallies in West Bengal

                          

Modi to address 2 rallies in Bengal on April 3

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address two back-to-back election rallies in West Bengal on April 3, BJP leader Mukul Roy said on Sunday.

Mr. Modi will speak at a public meeting at Siliguri in north Bengal at 1 p.m., followed by another rally at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground at 3 p.m. on the same day, Mr. Roy said.

“The party is fully prepared to hold the two election rallies of Mr. Modi on the same day. It is a historical day for the BJP to organise such big meetings of the Prime Minister back-to-back,” he said.

Mr. Roy added that no other party has shown the “courage” to hold two meetings on the same day.

Senior BJP leaders including Amit Shah, Nitin Gadkari and Rajnath Singh would also visit West Bengal for campaigning before the general election next month.

‘Inspired by PM Modi’s Vision, Gautam Gambhir joins BJP

       IT’S TIME TO SHOW

Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday, 22 March.

He joined the party in the presence of Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Ravi Shankar Prasad.

“I am inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for India. Will work to make India even better,” said Gambhir, joining the party. He added that he is “honoured” to get the opportunity to join the platform.

Jaitley, taking a jibe at the Congress party, said that Gambhir has been “aggressive” against Pakistan on field since his cricketing days and that he will not change his stance.

“Match is always won on the front foot and not the back foot,” Jaitley said.

Gambhir met BJP President Amit Shah, after joining the party.

Gambhir played a key role in India’s triumph in the 2011 World Cup and the 2007 T-20 World Cup. He was also recently given the Padma Shri award.

BJP sources told PTI that Gambhir may be fielded from the New Delhi constituency, currently represented by the party’s Meenakshi Lekhi.

A final decision is yet to be taken though, they added.

If I Join Politics, Don’t Vote for Gautam the Cricketer: Gambhir

In an interview to The Quint, earlier in January, Gambhir said if he ever were to make a foray into politics, people should vote for him not because he was a cricketer, but only if they believe he can deliver.

“Honestly, I haven’t even thought about it. Plus, if ever there is a situation in life that I get into that space, don’t vote for Gautam Gambhir the cricketer, don’t vote for Gautam Gambhir the human either. Vote for Gautam Gambhir if you believe in him. If you believe he can change your life for the better and can make this country a better place to live. Vote for that Gambhir. Because if you don’t believe those things, don’t vote for him because I would never get into this space thinking I’m a power-hungry boy.”

DOUBLE BLOW For Nirav Modi: UK Court Refuses To Grant Bail After Arrest, Judge Says He Has ‘Every Incentive’ to Not Surrender

  • Nirav Modi will spend eight days in custody after being denied bail following his arrest in London
  • The judge said that there was substantial grounds to believe that he wouldn’t surrender if bail were granted
  • Nirav Modi has claimed that the charges against him are politically motivated

Nirav Modi has been dealt a second blow in the space of just two days – one that he will feel tangibly – as the UK court where he appeared following his arrest by London authorities has rejected the fugitive diamantaire’s bail application. As a result, Nirav Modi will remain in custody till March 29 when the next hearing will be held.

Tellingly, the judge, while rejecting the bail application, said that there was substantial grounds to believe that Nirav Modi would fail to surrender if he were granted bail.

With Vijay Mallya’s lawyer Anand Doobay representing him in the court, Nirav Modi’s side’s argument was that the charges were politically motivated and that he had been cooperating with agencies. He refused to give consent for his extradition.

In terms of the specifics of his arguments, Nirav Modi put up a brazen defence, attempting to tell the court that he had only found out of the PNB scam when he attempted to get a Letter of Understanding (LoU) but was told that he couldn’t and it was illegal. The LoUs had served as the medium by which Nirav Modi had defrauded Indian banks to the tune of Rs 11,400 crore, by using the letters sanctioned by an errant PNB branch to claim massive loans from overseas branches of Indian banks.

Earlier on Wednesday, Republic TV had learnt that Nirav Modi had been arrested in London on account of the arrest warrant that had been issued against him by the Westminster Magistrates court following India’s efforts to extradite him. The London Metropolitan Police confirmed the arrest by issuing the following statement:

“Nirav Deepak Modi, 48 (Date of Birth 24.02.71), was arrested on behalf of the Indian Authorities on Tuesday, 19 March, in Holborn. He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, 20 March.”

The developments come barely two weeks after Nirav Modi made his first appearance since the PNB bank scam broke out, being confronted by reporters during a walkabout in London. At that time, the diamantaire had remained brazen, something that was picked up on by Omar Abdullah following the arrest:

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said there is no ‘220 club’ in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hoping for a reduced tally, which could see the emergence of an alternative to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Speaking to The Times of India, Gadkari rejected any discussion of a possible alternative candidate and asserted that the party will return to power with a full majority under PM Modi’s stewardship.

Gadkari’s name has often been the subject of speculation as an ‘acceptable’ candidate if the saffron party falls significantly short of majority.

The Union minister for Road Transport & Highways told the newspaper: “I don’t do such calculations or have any such expectations, I am a worker of the party. I am sure that the work done under PM Modi will result in a full majority. No such situation is going to happen.”

Gadkari expressed confidence that the development work done by the government would enthuse people to support the BJP and give them a second term.

Most opinion polls between November 2018 and February had shown the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) failing to secure a majority on its own. However, recent opinion surveys, conducted after the Pulwama terror attack and Indian Air Force (IAF)’s air strike at Balakot, show the NDA crossing the half-way mark on its own steam.

For months now, reports have suggested that Gadkari — who is considered close to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) — could be a consensus candidate within the BJP, if the party is required to seek external support to form the government. Speaking to the newspaper, Gadkari rejected the speculation.

Recently, the Member of Parliament (MP) from Nagpur, played an important behind-the-scene role in ensuring the BJP retained power in Goa after the death of then Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

 

In 2017 too, after the BJP failed to attain majority in the state Assembly polls, Gadkari had flown down to help the BJP cobble up an alliance with smaller parties in the coastal state, after which a government was formed under Parrikar’s leadership.

3.23pm: Pakistan PM Imran Khan has said that he would take Pakistani media to the attack side in Balakot to “expose India’s lies”. He is expected to hold a detailed press conference at 3.30pm.

3.15pm:Over 350 terrorists killed in IAF airstrikes: Hundreds of Fidayeen and their trainers were shifted from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to a five-star, resort style camp in a hilltop forest in Balakot after the Pulwama attack, providing Indian forces with “a sitting duck target” when they carried out an air strike early on Tuesday, killing up to 350 terrorists, PTI reported. They said at least 325 terrorists and 25 to 27 trainers were at the camp, the biggest operated by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad group, which had claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, Kashmir that killed 40 jawans. Everyone at the camp was sleeping and Pakistani defence establishment had no clue that the attack was coming so deep into their country because they had expected a surgical strike on camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir near the Line of Control, said PTI.

2.45pm: Main targets of today’s air strikes were Ibrahim Azhar, the elder brother of Masood Azhar who was also involved in the IC-814 hijacking and Mufti Azhar Khan Kashmiri, head of Kashmir operations, JeM.

Indian Air Force Strikes at Balakot don’t have official word yet but the Helter skelter by Pakistan seems like something big has happened. The IAF has gone beyond POK & into Pakistan near their capital while they were busy counting alms received from Saudi & China.

Balakot which is quite far out into the LOC is a deep strike and purportedly where Hafeez Saeed gives a lot of his addresses. If IAF penetrated that deep without casualties it’s a highly successful mission.
