Amit Shah Accuses Mamata Banerjee of Misleading People on CAA in West Bengal

Amit Shah, the union’s home minister, criticized West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday for her handling of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), saying that she had misled the public.

“The CAA law has been passed. Mamata Didi is deceiving the Bengali people. She is implying that you will forfeit your citizenship if you seek CAA. At a gathering in Balurghat, West Bengal, Shah remarked, “I request refugees to apply for citizenship under CAA; I assure there won’t be any problem.”

The minister made a statement: “Mamata didi, we will grant citizenship to all the refugees, no matter how much you oppose CAA.”

“To build a ‘Sashakt Bharat,’ we will have to build a ‘Sashakt Bengal,’” Shah continued, criticizing the leader of the Trinamool Congress. But look at how far infiltration has spread in West Bengal! The state cannot advance or gain authority while such circumstances continue.”

But how likely do you think Mamata Banerjee is to make an effort to halt this infiltration? No! Because her real vote bank is made up of these infiltrators,” the minister continued.

According to Shah, the only people who can stop infiltration in West Bengal are Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government. “Make sure the BJP is brought to West Bengal and see the unmatched change,” he continued.

“In Assam, we put an end to infiltration. The minister said, “I’m here to inform you that Modi has pledged to assist us in gaining more than thirty seats and forming a BJP government in Bengal.” We will also stop infiltration.”

Maharashtra Politics: Piyush Goyal Addresses Leadership Speculation After BJP’s Key Review Meeting

After the BJP’s dismal showing in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, union minister Piyush Goyal said the party was developing a plan for the Shiv Sena-BJP-NCP alliance to win the assembly polls, which are scheduled for later this year. Goyal also ruled out any changes to the party’s leadership in Maharashtra. “There will be no change in leadership in Maharashtra,” Piyush Goyal informed reporters during the Maharashtra BJP’s core group meeting in New Delhi on Tuesday, which included party president JP Nadda and Union home minister Amit Shah.

Rao Saheb Patil’s appointment as state president was rumored. There was also much conjecture in the state regarding the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), led by Ajit Pawar, staying in the ruling coalition. The BJP officials reportedly talked about how to guarantee the MahaYuti alliance’s reelection in the next assembly election, according to Piyush Goyal. Senior BJP officials BL Santosh, Bhupender Yadav, Ashwini Vaishnaw, Chandrashekhar Bawankule, the state BJP leader, Sudhir Mungantiwar, Chandrakant Patil, Pankaja Munde, Raosaheb Danve, and Vinod Tawde were among those present at the meeting, according to the news agency.

The BJP lost its 2019 tally of 23 seats in Maharashtra to win just nine in the Lok Sabha elections of 2024. In Maharashtra, the BJP-Shiv Sena combination had secured 41 of the 48 Lok Sabha seats in the 2019 elections. With one NCP member and seven Shiv Sena members led by Eknath Shinde, the total number of seats held by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) today is 17. Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, had made the offer to leave the Shiv Sena-BJP-NCP MahaYuti coalition in order to concentrate on leading the party to victory in the September–October assembly elections.

Following the meeting, Devendra Fadnavis declared, “We have prepared a blueprint for the upcoming assembly elections and how to win it along with the MahaYuti alliance partners.” He also mentioned the party’s performance in the Lok Sabha elections during the conversation at the BJP headquarters. In the latest Lok Sabha elections, the difference in votes between the ruling MahaYuti and the opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) was barely 0.3%, according to Fadnavis. The leaders also held a detailed discussion about the BJP’s advantages and disadvantages.

Swati Maliwal Seeks INDIA Bloc Support Amid Assault Case, Cites Lies and Death Threats

The Economic Times

Swati Maliwal Seeks INDIA Bloc Support Amid Assault Case, Cites Lies and Death Threats

Swati Maliwal, a Rajya Sabha MP for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has made public a letter she wrote to the leaders of the INDIA group, demanding a meeting to resolve her assault accusation involving an assistant connected to a significant alliance member.

Key aide to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, whose AAP is a member of the INDIA group, Bibhav Kumar was detained in May on charges that he had attacked Maliwal at the chief minister’s official residence. Kumar’s judicial custody was extended last week by a Delhi court till June 22. “I have addressed a letter to each of the major INDIA alliance leaders over this matter today. Maliwal wrote on X, “I’ve requested a time for a meeting with everyone.

‘A SMEAR CAMPAIGN’

The former chief of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) released a letter she wrote to NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar on X. In it, she claimed that rather than receiving assistance, she was the target of victim shaming and attacks on her reputation from members and leaders inside her own party. “To damage my credibility, reputation, and character, a smear campaign was organized on electronic and social media platforms. I have received several threats of rape and death as a result of the lies propagated against me,” Swati added.

“I have personally seen the suffering and loneliness a survivor experiences in her battle for justice over the course of the last month. The severe victimization and character assassination I have experienced would deter other women and girls from reporting abuse. Please give me some time so we can talk about this important matter. For the same, I’m awaiting your reaction,” she continued.

The duty metropolitan magistrate granted Bibhav Kumar’s custody extension and ordered the Delhi Police to appear him on June 22 after he was produced via video conference last week. The investigating officer (IO) was not present, thus the court decided to extend Kumar’s custody by one day earlier on Friday. May 18 saw Kumar’s arrest.

A magisterial court noted that his arrest rendered his anticipatory bail petition null and void, and then placed him under five days of police custody that same day. He was placed under judicial custody for four days on May 24 and then was placed under police custody for three days once more. On May 16, Kumar was charged with several offenses under the Indian Penal Code, including criminal intimidation, assault, and use of force on a woman with the purpose to disrobe and attempt to commit culpable homicide.

Rahul Gandhi Targets PM Modi Amid NEET-UG 2024 Exam Scandal After Supreme Court Criticizes NTA

Prime Minister Narendra Modi came under fire on Tuesday from Congress MP Rahul Gandhi for allegedly “remaining silent” about the anomalies in the NEET-2024 exam. Rahul Gandhi launched another assault on the prime minister shortly after the Supreme Court criticized the National Testing Agency (NTA) and the Center, ruling that any “0.001 percent negligence” in the way the NEET-UG 2024 exam was administered should be dealt with severely.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said nothing about how the NEET exam scam is endangering the future of almost 24 lakh kids, as is customary. Arrests in BJP-ruled Bihar, Gujarat, and Haryana make it abundantly evident that there was systematic and organized corruption in the exam process, with these states serving as the hub for the paper leak, Rahul Gandhi wrote on X in Hindi.

“We committed to safeguarding the future of the kids by passing strict legislation against paper leaks in our manifesto. The Congress leader said, “We are committed to strongly elevating the voices of the youth across the nation, from the streets to Parliament, and pressuring the government to develop such stringent policies, fulfilling our responsibility as the opposition.”

Admission to MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, and other relevant courses in government and private universities across the nation is determined by the results of the NEET-UG exam, which is administered by the NTA.

Prior to Modi taking the oath of office for a new term, Rahul Gandhi attacked him on Sunday earlier this month over the NEET-UG medical entrance controversy, claiming that the purported “irregularities” in the test had devastated over 24 lakh students.

Rahul Gandhi gave students around the nation assurances that he will speak out for them in Parliament and bring up concerns pertaining to their future.

NEET-UG exam row: SC says any negligence should be thoroughly dealt with.

The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Undergraduate)-2024 dispute should not be handled as adversarial, the Supreme Court stated on Tuesday, pointing out that students must work hard to prepare for these exams.
