Morning summary: Morbi council members ask the government to rethink dismantling the civic body, plus the most recent news

Published

on

from around the world

The Morbi district council in Gujarat has unanimously passed a resolution asking the state government to rethink its decision to dismantle the civic body. The move comes after the state government announced plans to merge the district’s municipalities and panchayats into a single urban local body.

The council members argue that the move will lead to a loss of democracy and accountability, and that the Morbi district is too large and diverse to be governed by a single body. They have also asked the state government to consider alternatives, such as creating multiple urban local bodies for different parts of the district.

The state government has not yet announced a decision on the matter, but the Morbi district collector has said that the government is “open to discussion” on the issue.

This is just one of the latest examples of local governments around the world facing pressure from central governments to streamline their operations. In many cases, these decisions are driven by financial considerations, as central governments look to save money by reducing the number of administrative units.

However, there is often resistance to these changes, as local governments argue that they are essential for ensuring democracy and accountability. In the case of Morbi, it remains to be seen whether the state government will reconsider

Congress leader: “Kangana Ranaut once said she likes beef.” BJP retaliates

Published

on

A significant controversy ensued following Congress leader Supriya Shrinate’s controversial social media post about actor-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has criticized Maharashtra Opposition and Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar for claiming actor Kangana Ranaut’s post on Twitter about her beef preferences and the BJP’s decision to grant her a Lok Sabha election ticket.

Shaina NC, a BJP leader in Maharashtra, criticised Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar’s comments and other ludicrous remarks made by Congress leaders. She stated that Wadettiwar’s actions, including granting Kangana Ranaut a ticket due to her beef consumption, are not the first time Congress has made such ludicrous remarks.

Shaina criticizes Congress social media in-charge Supriya Shrinate’s post against Ranaut, claiming that Shrinate’s comments and Randeep Surjewala’s discussion about Hema Malini’s attributes are anti-women, despite her age.

Shaina pledged that all women would participate in the voting process, and the results on June 4 would provide a “fitting answer to Congress.”

The Prime Minister of India has ensured respect for women in various political parties, including Triple Talaq and Nari Shakti Vandan. If the Congress party lacks thought processes, the answer will be on June 4 when Indian women vote against the anti-woman Congress party.

Supriya Shrinate’s post that sparked controversy

Congress leader Supriya Shrinate’s controversial social media post about actor-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut, who received a BJP ticket from the Mandi constituency in Himachal Pradesh for the upcoming Lok Sabha election, sparked a massive controversy.

Kangana, in response to Shrinate’s post, emphasized that every woman deserves respect and dignity. She shared her 20-year career as an artist, which includes portraying various women, from naive girls in Queen to seductive spy in Dhaakad, goddesses in Manikarnika, demons in Chandramukhi, prostitutes in Rajjo, and revolutionary leaders in Thalaivii.

The Congress leader later revealed that someone with access to her social media accounts had posted objectionable content.

The Congress’s manifesto promised legal guarantees to MSP, a national minimum wage of ₹400 per day, and a nationwide caste census.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticized the Congress for its Lok Sabha election manifesto, claiming it was influenced by the Muslim League.

Modi criticized Congress’s manifesto, which he said reflected the same mindset as the Muslim League’s during the freedom movement, at a public meeting in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur, where voters will vote in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections on April 19.

The Congress manifesto is largely influenced by the Muslim League, with any remaining parts being dominated by leftists.

The Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, stated that the BJP government is committed to implementing government schemes that cater to all sections, castes, and communities.

Modi’s attack comes after the Congress released its general election manifesto, emphasizing the ‘five pillars of justice’, including ‘Yuva Nyay’, ‘Naari Nyay’, ‘Kisaan Nyay’, ‘Shramik Nyay’, and ‘Hissedari Nyay’.

The Congress has pledged legal guarantees for the minimum support price, a national minimum wage of ₹400 per day, personal law reform, and a nationwide caste census.

Congress has announced that the MSP payable to farmer-sellers at procurement centers and APMCs will be directly credited to the farmer’s bank account digitally.

The grand old party announced that Congress will create and execute a robust import-export policy for agricultural commodities, prioritizing the protection of farmers’ interests and concerns.

The Lok Sabha elections will commence on April 19, with subsequent phases scheduled for April 26, May 7, 13, 20, 25, and June 1, with the vote counting scheduled for June 4.

The ruling party is threatening democracy by controlling independent institutions and using them to harass opposition figures, including former Jharkhand and Delhi chief ministers Hemant Soren and Arvind Kejriwal, in an unprecedented attack on democracy.

Fernandes, who previously lost to BJP’s Mauvin Godinho in the 2022 Goa legislative assembly polls, will face Pallavi Dempo, the first woman MP candidate named by the BJP, in the upcoming election.

Khalap represented the north Goa seat from 1996 to 1998, winning it for the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party.

Khalap, a seven-time MLA, is set to challenge BJP MP Shripad Naik for the North Goa seat, aiming to retain it for a sixth consecutive term.

The party has announced candidates for three seats in Madhya Pradesh and one for the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli.
