Results begin in Jharkhand assembly elections Chances of hung assembly

After voting in five-phased Assembly polls, the people of Jharkhand will finally get to see the winner of the neck-to-neck political contest between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM)-led alliance as the counting of votes will take place today. BJP, which had won 37 seats in the last Assembly elections, coined the slogan “Abki baar 65 paar”. However, the ruling party is facing a stiff challenge as the alliance of JMM, Congress and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) seems to have an advantage, as per exit polls released last week.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), All Jharkhand Students’ Union (AJSU) and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha-Prajatantrik (JVM-P) are among the major political parties which are in the fray in the tribal-dominated state.Raghubar Das took oath as Chief Minister in 2014 after the BJP won 37 seats and stitched an alliance with the AJSU, which had won 5 seats. However, AJSU broke ties with BJP and contested elections solo this time. The ruling party has fielded its candidates in 79 out of the 81 seats. However, BJP has not fielded any candidate against AJSU’s Sudesh Mahto, and has supported a candidate in the remaining one constituency. Under the leadership of JMM chief Hemant Soren, Congress and RJD have come together to oust BJP from power. JMM has fielded candidates in 43 seats, while the Congress and the RJD candidates are in the fray in 31 and seven constituencies, respectively.

Key seats:

Raghubar Das is contesting from the Jamshedpur East seat against his ex-cabinet colleague Saryu Rai, who is fighting as an independent, and Congress candidate Gourav Vallabh. Former Chief Minister Hemant Soren is the fray from two seats — Dumka and Barhet. BJP has pitted Women and Child Development Minister Louis Marandi in Dumka against Soren. Among other big leaders are AJSU President Sudesh Mahto, who lost the 2014 Assembly poll, and is trying his luck again from Silli seat and former Chief Minister and JVM-P chief Babulal Marandi who is fighting from Dhanwar Assembly seat. Jharkhand Agriculture Minister Randhir Singh is contesting from Sarath constituency, former deputy chief minister and sitting JMM MLA Stephen Marandi is in the poll fray from Maheshpur and JD(U)’s Salkhan Murmu is fighting from Sikaripara.

Exit polls predict hung Assembly:

The exits polls have indicated a marginal advantage to the JMM-led alliance but have pointed towards a hung Assembly. According to the ABP/C-Voter exit poll, JMM, Congress and RJD will retain 35 seats. It has, however, given 32 seats to the ruling BJP, 5 to AJSU and three to the Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) and six to others. India Today-Axis My India shows that the BJP is going to trail behind the Congress. It has given JMM-led opposition between 38 and 50 seats and the BJP between 22 and 32 seats. It has predicted 3 to 5 seats for the AJSU, 2 to 4 seats for the JVM-P, and 4 to 7 seats to others.

2014 Assembly election results:

After BJP swept power at the Centre, the party managed to increase its tally from 18 in 2009 Assembly polls to 37 in 2014 polls in the state. After the polls, six JVM-P MLA merged with the BJP. JMM won 17 seats, while its current ally Congress bagged six seats, and five seats went to AJSU’s tally. The tenure of the current Assembly ends on January 5, 2020. This is the fourth Assembly election in Jharkhand since the state was carved out of Bihar in 2000. In case of a hung Assembly, AJSU and JVM-P could emerge as key players in the next government formation. According to the Election Commission of India, the approximate voter turnout for all the 81 assembly constituencies across the five phases was 65.17 per cent as compared to the 66.53 per cent recorded in the 2014 elections.

Modi’s ‘thanks rally’ to regularize 1731 illegal colonies at Ramlila Maidan

A rally organized to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for regularizing 1731 illegal colonies in Delhi, Modi said that the people of Delhi got the right to own their land on land. PM was addressing a ‘Thank you rally’ at Ramlila Maidan. PM shouted slogans thrice to the people present in the field, unity in diversity, this is the specialty of INDIA. The PM said, ‘When there is uncertainty in life, a big worry goes away. So what is the effect of this, I am seeing this on the face of you all. Feeling your warmth I am satisfied that I and the INDIA Janata Party have got a great opportunity to bring a new dawn in the lives of 40 lakh people of Delhi. PM Modi said that under the Pradhan Mantri Uday Yojana, you have got the right to own your house, you have got full rights. Congratulations for this. Those who kept Delhi away from it and stuck various kinds of obstacles can see what is the joy of getting the rights at their home. For so many decades after independence, a large population of Delhi had to go through fear, worry, fraud and false election promises. Illegal, illegal, JJ Cluster, Ceiling, Bulldor, around the lives of a large population was reduced. If elections were to come, the date would get extended. The wheel of the bulldozer used to stop, but the problem remained there. I took up this work in my hand for a permanent solution to this problem.

The condition was that these people were demanding to increase the small information related to the colonies, to set the limit, extend the time till 2021. Shamelessly they will not be able to do anything by 2021. Seeing this, I said that I will not let this happen. Therefore, we took it upon ourselves in March this year and completed the process in October, November, December and the bill has been passed in the session of Parliament. With the help of technology in such a short time, the work of marking the boundary of more than 17 hundred colonies of Delhi has been completed. More than 12 hundred colonies have been put on the portals. This decision is connected to the house, it is also going to give a boost to the business of Delhi. It is not our tendency to keep problems hanging. Neither is the way of our politics. What were the people you trusted to make their homes regular. It is important for Delhiites to know. These people had given more than 2 thousand bungalows to the businessmen in Delhi’s most luxurious and expensive area. What happened to these bungalows, how did I not want to go into it. Gave them complete freedom to stay in those bungalows and did nothing to regularize your colonies. And while I was doing, the ballasts stuck. They did not know this is Modi. Earlier, BJP state president Manoj Tiwari welcomed him. Some people from unauthorized colonies came to the stage and thanked the PM. With this mega rally, BJP has triggered the campaign for the assembly elections in Delhi.

Lungi-infiltrated violent protests in Bengal: Dilip Ghosh

West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Thursday claimed that “lungi-clad intruders” from Bangladesh caused arson and violence in the state during protests against the new citizenship law.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who has opposed the NRC and the amended Citizenship Act, has said that she will not allow both to be implemented in the state.The BJP leader said that committing violence is not right from anywhere. This is treason and these people cannot be Indian citizens by any means. Accusing the Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee, the BJP leader said that there was no scope of realizing her dream of becoming Prime Minister, which irritated her by provoking people against the central government.

My party supported the citizenship law but I opposed it

Demonstrations are continuing across the country regarding the amended citizenship law.The bill was supported by Nitish Kumar’s party Janata Jal United (JDU) in Parliament, although JDU National Vice President Prashant Kishore has been opposing it.Now Kishore has also spoken on the issue of National Register of Citizens of India (NRC).He said, ‘I am not going behind its intention.In reality, when such laws are implemented, it is the poor who suffer the most from it.Like demonetisation, the purpose of implementing it was to hurt those who have black money.The rich only have black money.After all, who paid the price for it, the poor man paid the price, who did not even have black money.They had to be in line. Prashant Kishore further said, ‘Talking of NRC, everyone has to show their documents to prove their citizenship.Many people will not have documents or will not be able to obtain them.Even if there are documents, people will have to visit government offices for this.This will harass them, corruption will increase and many other problems will arise.200 million people do not have their own house, how will they prove their citizenship. ‘The JDU vice-president further said, “There should be talk of Aadhaar or Voter ID card for NRC.

Either the government should say that those who have Aadhaar and voter cards are citizens of India, but they (government) are not saying so .This means that for NRC, we have to show the Aadhaar and Voter card documents.Why are we doing this?Assuming that three percent of the people in the country are living illegally, then you can adopt some other method to find them and exclude them, there is no harm in that. Prashant Kishore further said, ‘I am a citizen of India and what do I need to prove it.I do not understand this decision of the government.If the government does not mention the implementation of NRC in the country, then the Citizenship Amendment Act can be discussed, there is no harm in it.If the government says its combination then it is not acceptable at all.Then it discriminates on religious as well as class basis.He further said, ‘My party supported the citizenship law but I opposed it.Only the head of the party (Nitish Kumar) can tell about the support.The party has said many times that NRC has no need in Bihar and they (Nitish Kumar) have assured me.He has said that the party’s stand on this issue will remain, there is no need to change it and I am confident that there will be no NRC in Bihar.It is not possible to do NRC across the country.

It was a kind of useless question. Sanjay Raut, 58, while answering a question, clarified that even though the Shiv Sena has an alliance with the Congress and NCP in Maharashtra, it still has its own identity in Delhi. Significantly, a delegation of opposition parties against the citizenship law has met the President, which did not include the Shiv Sena. Shiv Sena leader and editor of mouthpiece Saamana, Sanjay Raut underlined that the Shiv Sena is not a part of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance. He said that we are not with the UPA. We are definitely outside the NDA, but not with the UPA. We have our own identity in the Parliament.

Counsel for the accused said, curative petition will be filed

A major hurdle came to an end on Wednesday between Nirbhaya’s convicts and the hanging noose. A review petition filed by 2012 Delhi c Akshay Kumar Singh will be heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday. The request will be heard at 2 pm in an open court. One of the four men convicted in the gang-rape, torture and killing of a young girl in Delhi seven years ago, Akshay Singh had filed a petition in the top court this week to appeal against his death sentence.

While the act of filing a last-minute review petition – the four are expected to be hanged soon – is not unusual, the petition made some rather bizarre claims, including citing Hindu religious texts and the Delhi pollution crisis as reasons why the death sentence should not be carried out. In a 14-page Criminal Review Petition, filed by advocates on his behalf, Akshay Singh said: “Why death penalty when age is reducing… it is mentioned in our Ved, Purans and Upanishads that… people lived the life of thousand years… now it is Kalyug, in this era, age of human beings have reduced much. It has now come to 50-60 years… this is almost a true analysis… when a person faces stark realities of life, then he is no better than a dead body”.

The petition went on to say the air quality in the National Capital Region was “burst and like a gas chamber” and that the poor quality of drinking water – “full of poison”. “Life is going short to short, then why death penalty?” the petition asked. Finally, the petition quoted Mahatma Gandhi’s famous advice to people faced with a difficult question – “Recall the face of the poorest and most helpless man…”. Akshay Singh filed his review petition less than a week after the Delhi government and the centre rejected a mercy request by Vinay Sharma, another of the rapists. The courts have already rejected petitions from Vinay Kumar, Mukesh Singh and Pawan Gupta. Once the relevant legal appeals are exhausted all four will be hanged at Delhi’s Tihar Jail, where preparations are already being made.

In December 2012, Akshay Singh and five others, including a juvenile male, gang-raped and tortured a 23-year-old paramedic student inside a moving bus in south Delhi. She was violated with an iron rod when she protested. Her friend was beaten severely and both were thrown out of the bus at a secluded spot; the young girl was naked and bleeding. The woman, who came to be known as Nirbhaya or “fearless”, died 13 days after the assault, leaving the nation shocked and angry.
