    Congress leveled up with another salvo on Centre over the PNB fraud allegedly involving designer jeweller Nirav Modi, saying the country's "biggest bank loot scam" is pegged far bigger at Rs 21,306 crore with fresh revelations.

    Congress President Rahul Gandhi fired yet pointed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Nirav Modi fleeing the country. Taking to Twitter, he posted, "The scamster's escape formula: La(Mo) + Ni(Mo) ---(with) Na(Mo)---> Bha(Go)", while using the hashtag "#ModiRobsIndia".

    The opposition party hit out at the PM for his "silence" on the issue, alleging that he did not act on the scam even after his office was informed about it by one Vaibhav Khuraniya on May 7, 2015.

    Releasing letters purportedly written to various agencies in this regard, Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala asked why the BJP and government were silent on the issue and how accused Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi were "allowed" to escape.

    "India's biggest 'bank loot scam' has got bigger over the last 24 hours to Rs 21,306 crore as layers of the conspiracy got unearthed by the hour," he told reporters.

    After Saffron party has proved that being called anti-dalit is just tittle-tattle by their steps taken for Dr. Ambedkar who was a dalit, yet oppositions parties have decided to play around dalit vote bank by raising an issue of making or vandalizing Dr. Ambedkar statues.

    Like-wise, Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid dispute case was one of the most spoken and debated issue and now dalit is an add-on. Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi has called Prime Minister Narendra Modi an 
    anti-dalit, despite PM laid the foundation stone in favour of building a Dr. Ambedkar National Memorial, at 26 Alipur Road in New Delhi

    Gandhi during a current fast against allegedly growing caste violence, communalism and non-functioning of Parliament under the governance of BJP said, “Entire country knows that our PM is anti-dalit, it is not a secret anymore.”

    On question about the general elections in 2019, he further added, “A few days ago one BJP leaders said that opposition leaders are animals but reality is everyone is against the current government because they have always been against the dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers. We will defeat them in the 2019 general election for sure."

    The government is collectively developing the nation considering which they have implemented and started many fruitful ways to progress. Pradhan Mantri Jan Suraksha Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana, Beti Bachao Beti Parhao Yojana, Pradhan Mantrari Protsahan Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana etc..

    The ruling party has been seen taking such initiatives for dalit category across the nation. As planned, a statue in Mumbai’s sea-front at Indu Mills in Dadar which is to be completed in another 36 months, yet opposition party is against the humanitarian levels of BJP. 2019 general elections is the only wait that the country has to see the authenticity of the BJP’s governance.

    While addressing the rally in Tripura's Kailashahar on the last day of campaigning on Friday, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said "Modi Ji aate hain, 2-3 vayede kar jaate hain, chunav ke baad bhul jaate hain. Jahan bhi jaate hain, kuch na kuch galat vayeda karke chale jaate hain.”

    Rahul’s visit comes a day after Modi’s election rally in the state where he accused the Manik Sarkar government of blocking development in the state and called for “uprooting” the Communists. He also charged at the Congress party in Tripura saying that the “Congress is fighting the elections in name only.” 

    Gandhi will also address a public meeting at Ramkrishna Mahavidyalaya Stadium ground in Tripura’s Unakoti district.

    BJP has also been accused by former Assam chief minister and Congress leader Tarun Gogoi for making 'broken promises' to the state.

    "In Assam they promised a separate Bodoland – where is this separate state? Even with the Naga accord, the agreement is empty, it has no substance. They will do the same here and you must be careful. There will be no peace and tranquillity left in the state," Gogoi quoted as saying.

    Earlier this week, senior Congress leaders including Puducherry CM V Narayanasamy, former Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan, and former Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat  also addressed election rallies in Tripura.

    The Congress is seeking to oust the Manik Sarkar-led CPI-M government in the north-eastern state. While Sarkar has been the chief minister of the state since 1998, his party the CPI-M has been in power in Tripura since 1993.

    Tripura goes to polls on February 18 to elect its 60-member state Assembly. The results for the polls will be announced on March 3.

    In an ongoing conversation with the party workers, former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Thursday said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi is her boss too and that there should be no doubt about that.

    Addressing a Congress Parliamentary Party meeting, Sonia said: "We have a new Congress president and on your behalf and my own I wish him all the best. He is now my boss too. Let there be no doubt about that."

    She has been the party president for 19 years before Rahul Gandhi took over the respnsibility from her. She remains the chairperson of the Congress Parliamentary Party.

    In the same meet where Gandhi made clear her position in the party, she also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that his government indulges in 'maximum publicity, minimum government' and 'maximum marketing, minimum delivery'.

    Launching an all-out attack on the BJP and the Modi government, Sonia Gandhi today said she would work with like-minded political parties to ensure its defeat in the next general elections.

    She also accused NDA government at the centre of polarising communities to milk out electoral benefit in poll-bound states. "Violence against minorities, Dalits not sporadic but orchestrated to polarise society for narrow political gains: Sonia Gandhi. I will work with like-minded parties to defeat BJP so India restore to democratic, inclusive, secular, tolerant and economically progressive path."

    Talking about the party's performance in the recently held elections, she said that there has been improvement and "winds of change are coming".

    "We performed very creditably under tough circumstances in Gujarat &recent by-election results in Rajasthan were huge. This shows winds of change are coming. I am sure Karnataka too will underline resurgence of Congress."

  • We are faster than Indian army: RSS chief

    Today, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said that what Indian Army does in 6 to 7 months, our party has the capability of doing it in three days if any emergency arises.

    This was said by the RSS chief while addressing the workers at Zila school ground on the last day of his six-day visit of Muzaffarpur,

    "Sangh will prepare military personnel within three days which the Army would do in 6-7 months. This is our capability. Swayamsewak will be ready to take on the front if the country faces such a situation and Constitution permits to do so," Bhagwat said.

    Condemning the remarks, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said Bhagwat disrespected the army. 

    "He should not have said this because it disrespects those martyrs who have died for our nation. It is an insult to our flag because it insults every soldier who ever saluted it. Shame on you Mr Bhagwat, for disrespecting our Army," Gandhi tweeted. 

    Sangh is neither a military nor a para military organisation, rather it is like a "parivarik sangathan" (family organisation) where discipline is practised like the Army, he said adding that workers are always happily ready to make supreme sacrifice for their country.

    Bhagwat exhorted the RSS workers to set an example of good conduct in their personal, family and social life.
