PBs twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. JNU sedition case transferred to Special Cell – Incapable Delhi Police?
Two more students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, who made the police chase them across cities for around 10 days, later surrendered themselves a day after they resurfaced in the varsity’s campus on Sunday. Police has transferred case to Special Cel considering the technicalities of sedition involved and national security importance.
2. Digvijaya Singh gets bail in recruitment scam – Vyapam scam involves politicians from all parties!
This is one more case where Congress leaders involved in corruption had been blaming BJP leaders. Congress has expertise to blame BJP even for the misdeeds carried out by them. They have tarnished SS Chouhan’s image in the scam. Now its seems that their own former CM and Governor involved!
3. No Congress top leader has ever been to college – Swamy courts controversy!
Subramanium Swamy the long term anti-Congress man has fired another salvo targetting the education levels of the first family. This in addition to his case against Gandhis in NH case. Because of these accusations against Congress, he was protested against during his recent Kanpur trip.
Something seems to have gone wrong between him and Sonia. he took same Sonia’s support to topple Vajpayee’s govt. Now he is up in arms against her!
4. Kanhaiya tells probe panel was attacked in front of police – Case of public taking law into their own hands!
The Delhi Police has come under heavy fire for not taking appropriate action against the lawyers who assaulted the JNUSU president. Is public taking law unto own hands allowed in India? Why didn’t lawyer’s do similar thing to Nirbhaya rape accused? This is all party instigated politics!
5. Is Mahisasur martyrdom, Mayawati’s potent weapon against BJP in UP? – May snatch Dalit votes away from BJP!
Dalit ideologue SR Darapuri said the Mahisasur episode provided an opportunity to Mayawati to counter the BJP and to project the saffron party as an exponent of the Brahminical culture. However, it remains to be seen to what extent BSP may succeed especially in UP.
In 2014 LS polls BJP won 67/71 SC /ST seats and received tremendous support from Dalits even in UP. 18% of Jatavs the community to which Mayawati belongs voted for BJP in UP. 45% of other SCs voted for BJP in UP, higher than BSP. UP battle is not only about Smriti Irani vs Mayawati but also Durga vs Mahisasur.
