In his first election rally in Karnataka, Arvind Kejriwal criticises the BJP for corruption
At a rally for voters on Saturday, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal claimed that the “double-engine” administration in Karnataka had doubled only corruption rather than progress.
A “mono-engine government” with a fresh engine in the form of a “hardcore honest party” like the AAP was needed in Karnataka, according to the Delhi chief minister. Kejriwal made a number of promises at the rally, which also featured Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann: he would end corruption, provide free electricity, top-notch public schools, free education, high-quality healthcare, a monthly allowance of Rs 3,000, waive farm loans, and guarantee minimum support prices.
“In 2018, the prime minister said that the state of Karnataka has a “20%” government during the elections. Vote for me, and I’ll put an end to corruption, he declared. He requested that a “double-engine government be created,” according to Kejriwal. They supported the “double-engine” government because they believed the prime minister to be telling the truth. Nevertheless, in the “double-engine” government, corruption has doubled from 20% commissions to 40% commissions.
“The percentage of corruption has increased from 20% to 40%. Do not allow a “double-engine” government in this period. If not, a commission of 80% will be requested; later, it will increase to 100%. I advise the populace not to support “double-engine” administrations everywhere I go. Governments with “double engines” are ineffective; instead, a government with “one engine” is required. The Aam Aadmi Party is a fresh force, according to Kejriwal.
Kejriwal claimed that the BJP was incapable of combating corruption in light of the most recent arrest of a BJP MLA’s son in a corruption case.
“A 40% commission must be paid if any government work needs to be done. Amit Shah recently travelled to Karnataka. He urged backing for the BJP. We’ll get rid of corruption, he declared. After that, someone reminded him that his government was in charge, according to Kejriwal.
“Their government has held power for the past five years. What did they do over the last five years if they are now promising to eradicate corruption? said he.
“The son of an MLA from Amit Shah’s party was detained with Rs 8 crore shortly after he boarded a plane and fled the state. The Lawmaker is still not in custody, and it appears that they will give him a Padma Bhushan next year. Any criminal or someone engaged in unlawful activity is being accepted into the BJP, the speaker claimed.

Rahul Gandhi, Adani, and Government vs Opposition Stalls Parliament
In the midst of disarray caused by the BJP's attack on Rahul Gandhi's speech in London and the
opposition's demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee investigation into the Adani-Hindenberg
dispute, Parliament adjourned early today without accomplishing anything.
For the first time since the controversy over his statements about the state of Indian democracy in
London, Rahul Gandhi was spotted in the Lok Sabha. Yet, both houses convened for a brief period of
time before calling a day's adjournment.
The Congress leader had recently told NDTV, "I will speak inside the House if they let me to. When
asked to apologise by the BJP, he responded, "I didn't give any anti-India statement."
Trinamool Party protesters surrounded the Speaker's chair in Lok Sabha while covering their lips
with a black ribbon. Afterwards, opposition supporters assembled in a human chain outside of
parliament to demand an investigation into the Adani-Hindenburg dispute.
The deadlock between the administration and the opposition has put a stop to all work on the
Budget session's second half.
This morning, Law Minister Kiren Rijiju increased the pressure on the Congress by charging Rahul
Gandhi with lying about the UK and disparaging the country.
Speaking to reporters, Mr. Rijiju said, "The person who speaks the most in this nation and constantly
criticises the government claims overseas that he does not have the freedom to speak in India.
"We don't care if Rahul Gandhi brings down the Congress. Yet, we as citizens cannot remain silent if
he attempts to harm or insult the country. The country may have rejected the leadership of the
Congress, but that does not give him the right to mistreat the country overseas "Added he.
"Members of the anti-India group all speak in the same vein. Whatever Rahul Gandhi says, they
repeat it "Mr. Rijiju ranting.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi frequently criticised the Congress while travelling abroad, thus the
Congress has ruled out an apology.
Mr. Kharge added, "I want to ask those who are asking an apology that Modiji went to five to six
nations and there he (Modi) humiliated our country claiming it was a shame to be born in India, now
these same people are curtailing freedom of expression.
Rahul Gandhi has received criticism from a number of Union Ministers for his remarks in London.
PM meets with top ministers to discuss budget session strategy
Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with his top ministers on Monday in New Delhi to discuss the government’s plan of action before the second part of the Budget session.
In order to plan the approach, Congress MPs met earlier on Monday at the Parliamentary Party (CPP) office of the party, presided over by party president Mallikarjun Kharge.
Kharge, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, and former Congress president Sonia Gandhi are all present for the meeting.
Congress lawmakers from the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha attended the meeting of the Congress Parliamentary Party to determine the budget session strategy.
The 2023 budget session will continue following a one-month break. The break was intended to give the department-specific Parliamentary Standing Committees time to review grant requests and submit reports pertaining to their respective ministries or departments.

Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy leaves the Congress
Kiran Kumar Reddy, a former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, has left the Congress.
Manickam Tagore, a congressman and member of parliament, responded to Reddy’s resignation on Sunday by claiming that individuals who had received everything from the party and had completed the Andhra Pradesh Congress were now defecting to the BJP.
Reddy served as Andhra Pradesh’s final unbroken chief minister.
Please take this letter as my resignation from the primary membership of the Indian National Congress, Reddy requested in a letter dated March 11 and written to Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress.
Reddy had previously left the Congress in 2014 over the decision to split Andhra Pradesh and create Telangana by the then-UPA administration.
Although launching his own political party, the Jai Samaikyandhra Party, he joined the Congress again in 2018.
