Punjab Assembly adjourned amid protests by SAD-BJP MLAs. Is it good to stop assembly ?
Chandigarh : The second day of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha session on Wednesday started with Akali Dal and BJP MLAs entering the House wearing black gowns and demanding a complete farm loan waiver for farmers.
They raised slogans demanding loan waiver while entering the House.
The House was adjourned for 30 minutes amid protests by Akali-BJP MLAs over the non-fulfilment of promise of debt waiver by the Congress government.
Former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal also stood in the Well of the House and protested.
Later, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Finance Minister Manpreet Badal announced in the Vidhan Sabha that the state would forego its share of GST on langar at the Golden Temple.
The Congress leaders, having cornered the Akali Dal on the issue, exhorted them to ask Harsimrat Kaur Badal to resign from the Union Cabinet for rejecting the state’s plea thrice.
The state had moved the resolution thrice in the GST council, which was rejected by FM Arun Jaitley, Manpreet said.
Manpreet presented a resolution saying the Centre should stop the levy of GST on langar at the Golden Temple.
The CM announced that the reports of the Narang Commission (that looked into the sand mining scam involving former minister Rana Gurjit Singh), Ranjit Singh Commission (that looked into the sacrilege incidents) and the Mehtab Singh Gill Commission (that is looking into the registration of fake FIRs) would be tabled in the House before the Budget Session got over.
‘Inspired’ by Rahul Gandhi’s speech, Goa Congress president Shantaram Naik resigns; Is it a good Sign ?
Last week, during the plenary session of the Congress party, Rahul had hinted that veteran members of the party may have to make way for the younger generation
Following Rahul's speech, Goa Congress president Naik, who turns 72 on April 12 this year, today submitted his resignation
NEW DELHI : “Inspired” by Rahul Gandhi’s speech at the plenary session of the Congress earlier this week, where he called for the old guard in the party to make way for the young generation, the president of the Goa Congress Shantaram Naik, who would turn 72 on April 12 this year, today submitted his resignation to Rahul.
“Inspired by Congress president Rahul Gandhi's speech at the plenary session where he said that the younger generation should come forward to take leadership, I have resigned from the post of Goa Congress president,” Naik said.
Last week, during the plenary session of the Congress party, Rahul had hinted that veteran members of the party may have to make way for the younger generation.
In a veiled reference, the party president said that party could only be changed by demolishing “the wall” between workers and leaders — calling it his “first job” at the top.
Although he “sugarcoated” the messages by saying he would “bring down the wall, not by anger but with love, and by showing respect to veterans”, the intent to phase out the old guard could not have escaped the veterans seated in the front rows.
The Gandhi scion said “the wall” manifested itself in organisational malaises like election nominations to “aspirants who parachute from above” and in denial of tickets to those who lacked financial muscle.
Seventy-one-year-old Naik was appointed as the head of Goa Congress on July 7, 2017.
