BJP welcomes TRAI decision, says will boost 'Digital India'

New Delhi, Feb 8 (IANS) The BJP on Monday welcomed the decision of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) against discriminatory pricing of data content, saying it will give a strong impetus to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of a ‘Digital India’.

In a statement issued by Communications and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, the party said the decision was an expression of popular will and it will give a strong impetus to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of a Digital India.

“The BJP wholeheartedly welcomes the TRAI decision on differential pricing. The decision is a clear expression of popular will. The decision is fully in line with the BJP-led NDA government’s vision of open and fair Internet and support to net neutrality, which it has reiterated time and again, on the floor of the parliament and outside,” the statement said.

The statement said the National Democratic Alliance government ensured unparalleled transparency in the entire issue of net neutrality.

“The BJP is confident that today’s decision will give a strong impetus to PM Modi’s dream of a Digital India. The party notes with joy that this decision was taken after extensive consultations between various stakeholders across the spectrum,” the statement said.

The party also attacked the Congress, saying it sought to mislead the people and stood exposed.

“The Congress tried its best to create an atmosphere of distrust and fear while the process was going on and in the process made a deplorable attempt to mislead the people for the sake of petty politics. Today they stand completely exposed,” the statement said.

It said the government made sure proper processes were followed at all levels “which eventually led to the victory of an open and equal Internet”.

The telecom watchdog on Monday said no to discriminatory pricing of data content in a move seen as an endorsement of net neutrality and a setback to offerings such as Facebook’s Free Basics and Airtel Zero.

Govt. to highlight pro-poor, pro-farmer initiatives regularly: Naidu

New Delhi, Feb.8 (ANI): Talking about the government’s strategy in the upcoming Budget Session, Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs M. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday said that the Centre needs to highlight its ‘pro-poor, pro-weaker section, pro-farmer initiatives’ taken up by the government from time to time.
The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) leaders earlier today met at Naidu’s residence here to discuss the strategy for the upcoming Punjab Assembly polls in 2017 and also about the Budget Session.
Speaking after the meeting, Naidu said that it was a part of the periodical meetings of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies and added that it was decided that they should highlight the pro-poor, pro-weaker section, pro-farmer initiatives taken up by the government from time to time.
“We have discussed general issues and the issues that are likely to come up in the Budget session of the Parliament, the need to have better coordination in the Parliament and to have a common strategy on larger issues that are likely to be taken for the Budget Session,” Naidu said.
The Budget Session of the Parliament will begin on February 23.
While the first session will continue till March 16, the second session will take place from April 25 to May 13.
The government is keen to push its legislative agenda, thwarted in the last two sessions, while the Opposition is all geared up to target the ruling dispensation on a host of issues, including the suicide of PhD scholar Rohith Vemula and imposition of President’s Rule in Arunachal Pradesh. (ANI)

The Continuing Harassment Of Radhika Vemula Must Stop
Rohith Vemula left his body in protest against caste discrimination in Hyderabad Central University. While many in the country mourn the loss of the brilliant young man, the casteist state media is smelling blood and going after Rohith's family, in particular his mother Radhika. Here, I want to focus on the specific forms of violence that Radhika has endured and how that is reflective of the experience of Dalit women.

“Radhika is a 44-year-old mother who without question is still deeply in shock. She is under surveillance by the state, the media, and also wings of the BJP and RSS. This is in part due to her son’s foresight…it is vital to bring Radhika’s experience front and centre to our outrage.”

BJP will be vanquished in Assam polls: Gogoi

Guwahati, Feb 8 (IANS) As the Mughals were crushed in the battle of Saraighat, the BJP will be vanquished in the forthcoming assembly elections in Assam, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said on Monday.

Gogoi said the elections will be a showdown between him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the NDA government’s failure on all fronts and its anti-people and anti-poor policies will be his main poll planks.

“The BJP-led government at the Centre has made a U-turn on all issues concerning the people and it has utterly failed in fulfilling the poll promises made to the people,” he said.

“The frequent visit of central ministers to Assam has been primarily aimed at covering the failure of the central government and it has indulged in show business and fake assurances,” Gogoi said.

“The visits of the central ministers are aimed at hoodwinking the people and diverting their attention from the failure of the central government,” he said.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat also visited Assam twice recently, primarily to polarise the otherwise peaceful ambience of Assam, he said.

“The RSS is trying tacitly to sow the seeds of discord in Assamese society which was moulded and shaped by the philosophy of Srimanta Sankardeva and Ajan Fakir. We are committed to build a modern Assam based on the edifice laid by these saints,” he said, adding that the state government will foil any such activity.

Court posts DDCA's defamation case against Kejriwal on Feb 23

New Delhi, Feb 8 (IANS) A court here on Monday posted for February 23 a criminal defamation complaint against state Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and BJP’s suspended parliamentarian Kirti Azad filed by the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) and its vice-president Chetan Chauhan.

Metropolitan Magistrate Jagminder Singh fixed February 23 for consideration of the defamation complaint.

Chetan Chauhan through his advocate Sangram Patnaik last week filed a defamation case against Kejriwal and Azad, accusing them of defaming the cricket association by passing “scandalous” remarks.

Referring to Kejriwal’s interview to a news channel where he said that sexual favours were sought for selecting players, the complainant alleged that “false” charges were being levelled against the state cricket association.

The plea claimed that Kejriwal’s “false” statements were immediately endorsed and repeated by Azad.

“The aforesaid actions of the accused (Kejriwal and Azad) have severely damaged the credibility and reputation of the complainant (DDCA) in the eyes of thousands of cricket lovers, citizens of India as well as internationally,” the petition said.

“It has always been a serious apprehension, which has come true in the present case, where provocative statements, irrespective of their falsity, have entered the realm of the internet and social media, and are being republished and forwarded again and again, making it next to impossible to squelch the same. Therefore, the unwarranted conduct of the accused should not go unpunished.”

The complainant has requested court to initiate proceedings against the accused.

Men from Dubai, Pak 'hired' for Sunanda's murder, claims Subramanian Swamy

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Sunday alleged that Sunanda Pushkar’s murder was carried out by men hired from Dubai and Pakistan, and added that former union minister and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor should undergo custodial interrogation in this case. Pushkar, who married Tharoor in 2010, had checked into The Leela Hotel in Chanakyapuri a day before her death on January 17, 2014. Tharoor’s aides said the couple had checked into the luxury hotel because of renovation work at his New Delhi bungalow. Prior to her death, Sunanda was embroiled in a spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar, whom she accused of stalking her husband.
