BJP MP invoking 'Jai Hindu Rashtra' after taking oath triggers controversy in Lok Sabha

Chaos erupted in the Lok Sabha when BJP MP from Bareilly, Chhatra Pal Singh Gangwar, concluded his oath with 'Jai Hindu Rashtra.' This statement seemed to be a retaliatory response to AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi's earlier 'Jai Palestine' remark. Members of the INDIA bloc expressed strong opposition to the 'Jai Hindu Rashtra' declaration made by the BJP MP from Bareilly, asserting that such a statement contradicts the fundamental principles enshrined in the Constitution of India. #WATCH | BJP MP Chhatrapal Singh Gangwar took oath as a member of the 18th Lok Sabha today and concluded his oath with the words, Jai Hindu Rashtra, Jai Bharat. The Opposition leaders raised objections to his oath. pic.twitter.com/Y190gd8xC0 ANI (@ANI) June 25, 2024 AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi had hailed Palestine after taking oath as Lok Sabha member, triggering an uproar from the treasury benches that led to the Chair striking it off record. Owaisi, who has been elected from the Hyderabad seat for his fifth term, took oath in Urdu. He also recited a prayer before taking oath. After his oath, he hailed his state Telangana, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, apart from raising the AIMIM's slogan for Muslims. Talking to reporters outside Parliament, Owaisi asserted he said Jai Palestine. Other members are also saying different things...I said 'Jai Bheem, Jai Meem, Jai Telangana, Jai Palestine'. How is it wrong? Tell me the provision of Constitution? You should also listen to what others said. I said what I had to. Read what Mahatma Gandhi had said about Palestine. Asked why he mentioned Palestine, he said, They are oppressed people.

This donkey thinks of itself as a deer, this astonishing story from 5 years ago went viral

A hunter ventured into the forests of California with the intent to hunt, but what he saw there left him in disbelief. Among a massive herd of elk (the largest species of deer), the hunter spotted a donkey strolling leisurely. According to the hunter, the donkey seemed extremely happy amidst the elk and didnt appear out of place among the wild animals. The scene was so unusual that the hunter immediately recorded it on his phone and shared it on Instagram. This event took place in March 2014. The hunter, Max Fennell, is a professional triathlete. In the video he shared, Fennell explained that the donkey was actually protecting the elk herd. The wild animals didnt move forward until the donkey signaled that everything was safe. He captioned the video saying it was the most unique and extraordinary hunting trip he had ever experienced. According to a report by People, Max Fennell received a message in June from a woman named Terry Dury, asking where he had gotten the video. When Fennell explained that he had recorded it himself, Terry began asking about the location. Curious about her interest, Fennell inquired about the reason behind her questions, which led to a remarkable story from five years earlier. Terry revealed that she had adopted a donkey named Diesel from a land management bureau. Along with Diesel, her farm was home to some chickens and a llama. In April 2019, Diesel had run off in fear while returning home and, despite weeks of searching, was never found. Terry and her husband assumed Diesel had wandered into the rugged terrain spanning 30,000 acres in the northwest. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Max Fennell (@maxfennell) Terry expressed her joy upon learning that Diesel was happy and healthy. She also mentioned that she wouldnt attempt to bring Diesel back, as he had now become a wild donkey. The report highlighted that in California, donkeys not only pull carts but also protect livestock on farms, a role that Diesel had evidently taken up.

NEET-PG: Students slam last-minute exam cancellation, say medical education is a mess

NEW DELHI: Travelling from Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh to take her NEET-PG exam in Jaipur, Seetha (name changed) received the devastating news just 10 hours before the prestigious exam that it had been cancelled. The 23-year-old, who had invested a year of hard work, is in deep shock. She cant speak. We are trying to motivate her. My parents are very concerned, said her brother, a doctor in Rajasthan. My cousin, also taking the NEET-PG exam in Kurnool, burst into tears upon hearing the postponement. He prepared for over a year, enduring sleepless nights and relying on sleeping pills. He is crushed, he said, on condition of anonymity. Shocked, disappointed, and depressed thats the condition of an estimated 2 lakh NEET-PG students who learned on Saturday night that the Sunday exam, an eligibility-cum-ranking examination for admission to various MD/MS and PG Diploma Courses, was cancelled for the third time this year. Centre postpones NEET-PG entrance exam amid row over paper leaks TNIE spoke to over a dozen aspirants, some working in hospitals and others jobless. The initial shock gave way to anger at the examination system, which failed to hold public examinations without malpractice or paper leaks, affecting the fate of lakhs of young students. Some learned about the cancellation at the exam centre, others through social media, and some via media reports. Responses varied from crying and getting drunk to avoiding calls from family, friends, and colleagues. Many took to social media to criticise the government and authorities for playing with the lives of young students and expressed the desire to leave the country. Many aspirants, frustrated by the NEET-UG fiasco, said the arbitrary cancellation of the PG exam shows that medical education in India is in a complete mess. As students considered suing the authorities for psychological and monetary damage, the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA) offered free psychiatric services to NEET-PG aspirants, highlighting the mental trauma many are suffering. 750 of 1,563 candidates skip NEET-UG re-test: NTA The government and the education and health ministry should compensate medical students and PG aspirants. No one is highlighting the mental state of the students. They are making a fool of us. Three exams have been postponed back to back. They have taken the education sector for a ride. They should be ashamed, said Dr Dhruv Chauhan, national council coordinator of the Indian Medical Association-Junior Doctors Network (IMA-JDN). The NEET-UG question paper was leaked while the NEET-PG, UGC-NET, and CSIR-NET exams were cancelled. The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBE) conducts the NEET-PG exam. Over 2 lakh MBBS graduates appeared for the computer-based exam for around 52,000 post-graduation seats nationwide. Students must study 20 subjects and attempt 200 MCQ questions. Neet not neat, mired in mess It is a double blow for Dr Sahifa Harem, a NEET-PG aspirant, whose brother, Shanawar Hussain, took NEET-UG. Dont know which is more shocking the UG controversy or the PG exam cancellation. She was looking forward to joining Apollo Hospital in Delhi in the paediatrics department on Monday a day after the scheduled exam. I was working in Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital but left last December to concentrate on my studies as the exam was initially to be held in March, then postponed to July, then June 23. And now again, there is no certainty when it will be held. At the moment, I am jobless. I dont think I will be able to join my new job due to this uncertainty about the exam date, said Harem, from Begusarai in Bihar. Authorities should understand our mental state. They should issue a public apology for causing us mental trauma. We couldnt even celebrate Eid with the family because of the exam and result stress, she said, adding that her mother has stalled her wedding plans because of the exams. CBI takes over probe into irregularities in NEET-UG; FIR registered; special teams formed Delhi-based Dr Jyoti Gupta said she is returning from Merrut, where her examination centre was. I reached Meerut a day before the exam and stayed in a hotel. Now, I am dejected. I dont know when I should start my studies again. This is so frustrating. Dr Akash Soni, who has been working as a medical officer in Singrauli Primary Health Centre in Madhya Pradesh for the past ten months, said he took leave from work and travelled overnight by train - a total of 700 km - to reach Bhopal centre. Many like me are working and had to take leave from work. It is so disheartening. Since COVID-19, we have been seeing this uncertainty. It is like students pursuing medical education have become guinea pigs for the authorities to experiment on. Doctors are already overburdened. By cancelling the exam three times this year, they are wasting the resources of this country. Its a huge loss to the nation that doctors serving the nation are suffering like this, said Dr Soni, also the Federation of All India Medical Association (FAIMA) Doctors Association Madhya Pradesh chairman. Initially thinking the news of the postponement was fake, Dr Shubham Anand Jha, a Junior Resident at the Lady Hardinge Hospital in the Psychology department, said he couldnt believe the authorities cancelled the exam at the last minute. How can they take the students lives so lightly? This is so disgraceful. My examination centre was in Meerut. I planned to travel with some other aspirants around 5 am. I know many aspirants who travelled 1,000 km to the exam centre. This is beyond shocking. After travelling all night to reach his examination centre in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, from Jaipur, a distance of over 450 km, Dr Sunreet Jakhar slept to get up fresh in the morning to take the exam. I was tired after the journey, so I went to sleep. When I reached the examination centre in the morning, I was shocked to see the notice of cancellation outside. I am no longer on social media to avoid distractions, so I didnt know. It is so stressful to go back to studies and prepare again. Similarly, Dr Vishal Bishnoi travelled over 500 km from Jaipur, Rajasthan, to Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. An intern in the paediatrics department at Jaipur National University, he travelled with his colleague Jitendra Sharma, whose centre was the same. We had reached the hotel and later found out that the exam had been postponed. It is such a huge disappointment. We are in disbelief. Some aspirants said on Telegram that the PG exam paper had been leaked and could be bought for Rs. 20-25 lakh, like the NEET-UG exam. As the news circulated, the NBE issued a notice on June 21, cautioning aspirants not to be misled by unscrupulous elements claiming to have accessed questions of the upcoming NEET-PG 2024. They said they had registered a police case. Buck stops at top echelons of Modi govt in NEET 'scam': Congress Dr Manish Jangra, founder of FAIMA, said that medical education in India has become a joke and is in crisis. We want to know on what basis NBE has cancelled the exam. They are answerable to the students, he said. We have come to know that many students are in depression. Many took flights, trains, buses, and cabs to travel to far-off examination centres and booked hotels. Some were even travelling to the centre when the news broke, he added. Dr Lakshya Mittal, who has been handling numerous calls from anxious aspirants, said that after the NEET-UG irregularities and paper leaks, there is no faith in the National Testing Agency (NTA), despite the governments move to remove the director general Subodh Kumar Singh and replace him with Pradeep Singh Kharola. Indias medical education has been destroyed. This abrupt change, following the NEET-UG scam, underscores a deeply troubling pattern in handling medical examinations and the overall medical education system in India, he said, adding that the Prime Ministers Office (PMO) should intervene and take strict action on the exam-conducting bodies. The entire education system is collapsing. He said he is more worried that Indias image would be tarnished. Many Indian doctors go abroad to study or work. Our doctors would find it difficult abroad after news of paper leaks and irregularities in medical exams. I fear they will be considered fake degree holders. Kerala-based Dr Cyriac Abby Philips, popularly known as TheLiverDoc on X (formerly Twitter), said that in his career as a medical professional, he had not seen anything like this. The most important postgraduate medical entrance exam in a medical student's life is cancelled 12 hours before by the government. Students have spent years and A LOT of money preparing for this. This is not only devastating for them; it's a mockery of the medical education system in India. Enjoy five more years of this terrible clownery. No one has destroyed this nation as much as the current authorities. Tell me why anyone would want to stay back here to serve a banana republic. Dreaming of a time when we can hold our heads high again. NEET & unclean

'Kalki 2898 AD' Grabs Headlines Before Release Amid Artwork Theft Allegations

The highly anticipated film 'Kalki 2898 AD' has been making waves ahead of its release. Recently, the second trailer of this film, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Prabhas, and Deepika Padukone, was released and has received an overwhelmingly positive response. Made with a substantial budget, the film's release date is fast approaching. Amidst all the excitement, 'Kalki 2898 AD' has found itself embroiled in controversy. A Hollywood concept artist has accused the makers of 'Kalki 2898 AD' of stealing his artwork. Oliver Beck, the Hollywood concept artist in question, took to Twitter (now X) to substantiate his claims by posting two pictures. He wrote, It was disappointing to see that some of the work I did for Star Trek: Prodigy was stolen by Vyjayanthi Films for their trailer. This is a matte painting I did for Star Trek under the direction of Ben Hibon and Alessandro Taini, and it appears in their trailer. Beck further shared two more pictures for comparison and added, They also directly stole work from the very talented Sung Choi. In an interview with the Indian Express, Oliver Beck expressed, When you are not an artist, it might be difficult to spot plagiarism. You may not see it immediately, but all my artist friends and the artist community I've spoken to are very clear that this was taken from my work. It is not an exact copy, but it clearly matches my work. They had contacted me to work on this film, so they are aware of my portfolio and have seen my work, making this a huge coincidence. Regarding potential legal action, Beck mentioned that it would be challenging because the work is not an exact replica. Legal recourse is challenging for me because it is not a direct copy of my work. For legal action, usually, the plagiarism has to be very clear, like in the case of Sung Choi, where his work was copied and pasted. 'Kalki 2898 AD' is set to release on June 27. The film features Deepika Padukone, Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kamal Haasan in significant roles. Directed by Nag Ashwin, it is produced under the banner of Vyjayanthi Movies, with a reported budget of 600 crores.

Here, all cases within the district are heard. The Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi, where Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was granted bail, is also a District Court. Decisions here can be challenged in the High Court. Tribunals Tribunals are quasi-judicial bodies. They are established to resolve administrative or tax-related disputes. Fast Track Courts Fast Track Courts, also known as Special Courts, handle cases where a quick decision is required. Most cases of rape and POCSO are heard in Fast Track Courts. Lok Adalats Lok Adalat is a pre-court stage. In fact, when both parties want to avoid litigation in a case and want to reach an agreement on some terms, they turn to Lok Adalat. Here, the case is resolved in a friendly manner between both parties in a manner that avoids legal proceedings. Understanding the hierarchy and functions of India's courts is crucial for comprehending legal processes in the country. Each court serves a specific purpose, from the Supreme Court as the apex body to the District Courts handling local matters. The recent developments involving Delhi's Chief Minister highlight the intricate workings and the checks and balances within India's judicial system.

Neena-Masaba to Soni-Alia: Bollywood's Mother-daughter duos

There are many success stories in the entertainment industry that seem straight out of a fairy tale. But behind each milestone, is perhaps the toil of many generations. This Mother's Day, let us look back at the life stories of mothers whose struggle and hard-earned success have inspired their daughters to be achievers in their own right. Seema Pahwa and Manukriti Pahwa Seema Pahwa had a thriving career ahead of her after starring in India's first soap opera 'Hum Log' in 1984. But then she took a long break to take care of her son Mayank and daughter Manukriti. Once her children grew up, Seema eventually returned to acting along with her theatrical roots by performing plays like 'Saag Meat' and directing Zee Theatre's literary anthology 'Koi Baat Chale.' She has also featured in multiple TV shows, and films like 'Gangubai Kathiawadi', 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' and 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.' She has also directed the film 'Ramprasad ki Tehrvi.' Manukriti too has made a name for herself on stage and made her cinematic debut in Yash Raj's 2018 production, 'Sui Dhaaga' where Seema also played a pivotal part. She also assisted Seema during the making of 'Koi Baat Chale' and is all set to create a legacy of her own on stage and in films just like her mother. She is incidentally married to Shahid Kapoor's stepbrother Ruhan and is Supriya Pathaks daughter-in-law. Lillete Dubey - Ira Dubey Multifaceted actor and theatre director Lillete Dubey's theater journey began in 1973 when she along with Barry John and peers co-founded 'Theatre Action Group' (TAG). Over the decades, she has worked in Indian and international productions, on stage, on television, and in films like 'Zubeidaa', 'Monsoon Wedding', 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' and many more. In 1991, she set up 'The Primetime Theatre Company' and for over three decades has showcased original Indian plays and regional adaptations for a global audience. Her acclaimed body of work includes Zee Theatre's teleplays like 'Adhe Adhure', and 'Womanly Voices'. Her career and fulfilling family life have also given her daughters Neha and Ira, roots and wings. Ira is a trained actor and is juggling theatre productions like '30 Days in September', 'Womanly Voices' and 'Adhe Adhure' with films like 'Aisha', and 'Dear Zindagi.' She has also toured with the internationally acclaimed one-woman show, '9 Parts of Desire', directed by Lillete. Neena Gupta - Masaba Gupta In her autobiography 'Sach Kahoon Toh,' celebrated actor Neena Gupta recalls how as a single mom, she would take her daughter to work with her including on the set of 'Tipu Sultan' which was tragically engulfed in fire. Both mother and daughter have come a long way since then. Neena who has appeared in cult films ('Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro', 'Saath Saath', 'Utsav'), starred in the clutter-breaking Doordarshan show 'Khandaan' and directed a TV drama ('Saans') is now also enjoying major commercial success via hits like 'Badhaai Ho' and 'The Last Color'. Her work in the OTT show 'Panchayat' has also been critically acclaimed. Daughter Masaba, after establishing herself as a fashion and beauty entrepreneur, has also successfully ventured into acting with the popular Netflix show, 'Masaba Masaba' where Neena plays herself with trademark candor. Both women exemplify success, grit, resilience and also well-deserved personal and professional triumph. Soni Razdan-Alia Bhatt Soni Razdan was an important part of new-age cinema including 'Chowringhee Lane', 'Mandi', 'Saaransh', 'Trikaal', 'Khamosh', 'Daddy,' 'Buniyaad' and many more. She also starred in the superhit Doordarshan show 'Buniyaad' but a big mainstream break eluded her. However, right from her debut as 'Student of the Year', her daughter cracked the code of commercial success. Alia Bhatt's work in 'Highway', 'Raazi' where she starred with Soni, 'Gully Boy,' 'Dear Zindagi' and more recently in 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' has made her the darling of critics as well. Her film company 'Eternal Sunshine Productions' is also doing very well. In 1977, famous Italian auteur Franco Zeffirelli wanted to cast Soni as Mary in the miniseries, 'Jesus of Nazareth'. She did not land the part but life came full circle when her daughter starred in an international production, 'Heart of Stone' in 2023. Pooja Bedi - Alaya F Pooja Bedi's iconic red dress from 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar' is an unfading cinematic memory from the 80s. This was a decade, when she shaped popular culture with her appearances in a Baba Sehgal hit ('Dil Dhadke') and also bold advertising campaigns. She also worked on her late mother Protima Bedi's memoir 'Time Pass', is a successful columnist, and took a long break from acting to raise her children. Her daughter Alaya F earned a diploma in acting at the New York Film Academy, made her debut in 'Jawaani Jaaneman' and won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. Interestingly her mother had been nominated for a Filmfare Award for 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar' but did not win. Alaya is now experimenting with narratives like 'Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat' along with commercial films. And just like Pooja, she too is on a unique creative trajectory.

High Voter Turnout in Third Phase; Clashes and Allegations Mar West Bengal and UP Voting Nearly 65 per cent voter turnout was recorded on Tuesday in the third phase of Lok Sabha elections in 93 constituencies spread over 11 states and Union Territories with stray incidents of violence in West Bengal. Assam recorded the highest turnout at 81.71 per cent followed by West Bengal at 76.52 per cent and Goa at 75.20 per cent, while Uttar Pradesh witnessed the lowest at 57.34 per cent, with Bihar at 58.18 per cent, Gujarat at 59.51 per cent and Maharashtra at 61.44 per cent doing slightly better, according to the figures from the Election Commission at 12.15 am. The overall voting percentage was 64.58 per cent. According to the EC, the figures are an ''approximate trend'' and are likely to rise as data is being collected. While the official time for the voting to conclude is 6 pm, it can go beyond to enable voters who have come in the queue before the end of fixed polling hours to exercise their franchise. Among other states and UTs, Chhattisgarh recorded 71.06 per cent polling, Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu 69.87 per cent, Karnataka 70.41 per cent, and Madhya Pradesh 66.05 per cent, according to the EC. As many as 17.24 crore people, including 8.39 crore females, were eligible to vote in the third phase and 1.85 lakh polling stations manned by 18.5 lakh officials had been set up. With this, voting has been completed in 20 states/UTs and 282 Lok Sabha seats out of 543. The overall voting percentage in the first and second phases was 66.14 per cent and 66.71 per cent respectively. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah were among those who exercised their franchise in Gujarat, where elections were held in 25 seats. While PM Modi cast his vote at a polling booth in Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency, Shah voted at a polling booth in Ahmedabad. Shah (Gandhinagar) is among the bigwigs in the fray along with Union ministers Jyotiraditya Scindia (Guna), Mansukh Mandaviya (Porbandar), Parshottam Rupala (Rajkot), Pralhad Joshi (Dharwad) and SP Singh Baghel (Agra). The stakes are high for the BJP in this round as it had won an overwhelming majority of these seats, including all in Gujarat, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, in the last election. Both the BJP and the INDIA bloc claimed that they had the upper hand after the third phase. ''Across all the states and UTs, voters from all walks of life have placed their faith in the NDA and our development agenda. INDI Alliance is losing even more steam, thanks to their regressive economics and outdated votebank politics,'' Modi said on X. The Congress claimed that the BJP has been wiped out in the south and reduced to half of its strength after the three phases ''Its very clear that for the BJP, it is South mein Saaf, North mein Half,'' Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said on X. In Uttar Pradesh, where several members of Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav's family are contesting, party chief Akhilesh Yadav alleged that the BJP workers were trying to ''loot booths'' in Mainpuri and people from opposition parties were being detained in police stations. Yadav cast his vote in Saifai (Etawah) in Mainpuri constituency where his wife and sitting MP Dimple Yadav is contesting. Sporadic incidents of violence marred the polling in the four constituencies in West Bengal as TMC, BJP and Congress-CPI(M) workers clashed with each other in various parts of Murshidabad and Jangipur seats. According to state election officials, Murshidabad registered the highest voter turnout of 80.13 per cent followed by Maldaha Dakshin (76.15 pc), Maldaha Uttar (75.92 pc), and Jangipur (73.71 pc). The TMC, BJP, and the Congress-CPI(M) alliance lodged separate complaints related to poll violence, voter intimidation, and assaults on poll agents. The EC received 182 complaints by 9 am, most of which were from Murshidabad and Jangipur constituencies. ''The TMC has unleashed a reign of terror in the entire constituency. Strict action must be taken by the Election Commission,'' Left-Congress combine candidate Mohammed Salim said in Murshidabad seat. In the Karimpur area of the seat, clashes were reported between the TMC and the CPI(M) supporters outside a few booths. Clashes were reported between the TMC and the Congress activists from the Domkol area. In some areas, TMC workers held protests alleging that central forces were assisting BJP workers in ''intimidating'' voters at booths in the Maldaha North constituency. In Uttar Pradesh, Agra witnessed 53.99 per cent polling, Aonla 57.08 per cent, Budaun 54.05 per cent, Bareilly 57.88 per cent, Etah 59.17 per cent, Fatehpur Sikri 57.09 per cent, Firozabad 58.22 per cent, Hathras 55.36 per cent, Mainpuri 58.59 per cent and Sambhal 62.81 per cent. ''In Mainpuri, BJP people are trying to loot booths. They are detaining opposition people in police stations,'' SP chief Yadav alleged without elaborating. ''There is information from some places that the government is using force. It is heard that officers have been deployed outside polling booths,'' he said. In Budaun, the villagers of Dhoranpur boycotted the polling to protest against the alleged non-fulfilment of their demand for a road. District Magistrate Manoj Kumar said the issue has come to his notice and a sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) has been sent to the village. Not a single vote was also cast in three villages of Firozabad -- Nagla Jawahar, Neem Kheria and Nagla Umar -- as the villagers tried to draw the administration's attention to their problems. SP candidate Aditya Yadav in Budaun alleged that his party supporters were not being allowed to vote in some places. ''I have made a complaint in this regard with the EC observer and have given proof of police atrocities. We are only getting assurances,'' he said. Queues were seen at polling booths in most Lok Sabha segments in northern districts of Karnataka. Union Ministers Pralhad Joshi and Bhagwanth Khuba, and Karnataka Minister Priyank Kharge were among those who came in early to cast their votes. Former chief minister B S Yediyurappa along with sons B Y Raghavendra, BJP candidate from Shimoga Lok Sabha segment, and B Y Vijayendra, party's state president, along with other family members cast their vote at Shikaripura in Shivamogga district. Two government officials on poll duty died in Karnataka after suffering a heart attack, sources in the Election Commission said. A 45-year-old woman polling officer - Kaushika Babariya- deployed at a polling booth in Amreli district of Gujarat, also died of a heart attack. In Gujarat, the Banaskantha district collector ordered an inquiry after Congress Lok Sabha candidate Geniben Thakor alleged that electors were threatened and asked to vote for the BJP by some youngsters posing as Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel at a polling station. In Maharashtra, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, his wife Sunetra Pawar, who is the NCP candidate from the Baramati Lok Sabha seat, and NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar were among those who cast their votes. Sharad Pawar was welcomed with a traditional 'aarti' as he arrived at a polling booth in the Malegaon area of Baramati constituency in Pune district. Ajit Pawar and Sunetra Pawar cast their votes at a polling booth in Katewadi area of Baramati. Sunetra is pitted against her sister-in-law Supriya Sule, Sharad Pawar's daughter and the sitting MP from there. In Assam, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma accompanied by his wife Riniki Bhuyan Sarma and daughter Sukanya Sarma exercised his franchise at Amingaon in Barpeta Lok Sabha seat. Amid rains, people used different modes of transport, including boats, to reach the polling stations across Guwahati, Barpeta, Dhubri and Kokrajhar constituencies.

Meanwhile, during the day, a group of Muslim women in Badaun's Sahaswan assembly segment claimed that they were stopped from casting their vote. They also alleged that the men accompanying them were beaten up by police. However, Badaun District Magistrate Manoj Kumar refuted the charges, saying people who had already cast their votes were gathering unnecessarily and police had to move them away to maintain law and order. Samajwadi Party leaders remarks on Ram temple stirs controversy amid Lok Sabha polls Incidents of poll boycott were also reported from a number of places including Dhoranpur village of Badaun. Villagers boycotted the poll for the first three hours, saying their demand for a road was not fulfilled. Later, a sub-divisional magistrate reached the village and persuaded the local people to vote. Reports of poll boycotts also came in from Nagla Jawahar, Neem Kheria and Nagla Umar villages in Ferozabad. However, later with the district administration's intervention, the villagers cast their votes.

Amit Shah slams dynastic SP, Congress for skipping Ram temple opening

LUCKNOW: Union Home Minister Amit Shah launched a scathing attack on the opposition bloc, especially the Samajwadi Party, over dynastic politics while addressing poll rallies in Badaun, Bareilly, and Sitapur on Thursday. He slammed Congress and SP leaders for refusing to attend the consecration of Ram Lalla. In Badaun, Shah criticised the Samajwadi Party for fielding Aditya Yadav, the son of senior SP leader and Akhilesh Yadavs uncle Shivpal Yadav, after much flip-flopping. He accused Akhilesh Yadav of giving tickets to five family members, including himself, his wife Dimple Yadav, and cousins Akshay Yadav, Aditya Yadav, and Dharmendra Yadav, questioning whether no other Yadav besides the first family of SP was capable of contesting elections. Shah addressed a public rally in Budaun, emphasizing that the upcoming election is to give Prime Minister Narendra Modi a third mandate and to tackle issues like terrorism, Naxalism, and crime in Uttar Pradesh. In Bareilly, Shah criticised Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and Akhilesh Yadav for not attending the Ram Temple consecration ceremony in Ayodhya, accusing them of prioritizing their vote banks over national interests. Continuing his tirade against Congress, Shah stated that the Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi would end w i t h a C o n g re s s Dhoondho Yatra after June 4. He praised the governance of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, highlighting improvements in law and order and development under his leadership. Shah assured the people of Sitapur that the BJP would protect the reservation provisions for SC, ST, and OBC communities guaranteed by the Indian Constitution. He criticised Congress for allegedly favouring Muslims over other communities and accused them of divisive politics.

What are UP's Muslim voters up to in this Lok Sabha election?

Till about a decade ago, the voting behaviour of Muslims in Uttar Pradesh used to be a decisive factor in about two dozen Lok Sabha seats. The main political parties in those elections, such as the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and the Congress, whether in alliance or separately, used to bank heavily on the support of Muslims. This used to be the norm from the 1970s till the general election of 2014, when the Narendra Modi wave made all such factors redundant. Riding high on it, the Bharatiya Janata Party got the majority community to vote in such numbers so as to make the Muslim vote bank irrelevant. However, ten years of BJP rule at the Centre has taken away much of the wind from beneath that wave. With two phases of polling having already been completed in the state, the significance of the electoral heft of Muslim voters has once again come into play with both the SP-Congress alliance and the BSP renewing their efforts to wrest Muslim support. UP's Muslims have over the last few years and till this election been caught in a dilemma as they have not been able to consider any one party in the state their benefactor. Earlier, from the heydays of Mulayam Singh Yadav, the Samajwadi Party used to be their go-to party since the late former CM had made the welfare of Muslims nothing short of a sacred political pledge for himself and his party. But as Akhilesh Yadav inherited the party in 2017, he very quietly shelved the pro-Muslim policy and started pursuing a brand of ambivalent-- often so-called soft -- Hindutva. In the recent past, Akhilesh vociferously backed the construction of a statue of Parashuram, the deity revered by Brahmins, proposed the construction of a huge Krishna temple in Vrindavan, inaugurated a Lord Krishna statue in Saifai, and generally avoided having Muslim leaders in his core team of Samajwadi Party after the jailing and subsequent sidelining of Azam Khan. All this changed ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. In order to counter the charge of ignoring Muslims, Akhilesh skipped the consecration of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, visited the family residence of late Mukhtar Ansari in Ghazipur to pay condolences (albeit belatedly) and risked disaffection in the party by ignoring upper caste-Hindus for key bye-elections. The importance of being Akhilesh Yadav in this Lok Sabha election Mayawati, meanwhile, had appeared to be softer towards the BJP in the beginning, but her Bahujan Samaj Party has still stuck to fielding Muslims in key elections in the past few years, and the trend is highly visible in this year's list as well. The party's candidates for 54 seats so far includes 14 Muslims. Then there is the AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi, who had declared his intention to fight from all seats in collaboration with Apna Dal (K) and some smaller parties with much fanfare, but the initiative seems to have lost steam. The Muslim vote in UP According to several estimates, Muslims account for 19% to 23% of the state's population. Based on figures from various organisations and development programmes, the districts with high Muslim population (above 25%) are: Rampur 50.57%, Moradabad 47.12%, Bijnor 43.04%, Saharanpur 41.95%, Muzaffarnagar 41.30%, Amroha 40.78%, Balrampur 37.51%, Bareilly 34.54%, Meerut 34.43%, Bahraich 33.53%, Shrawasti 30.79%, Baghpat 27.98%, Ghaziabad 25.35%, and Siddharthnagar 29.23%. Polling was completed in the first phase on April 19 in eight constituencies -- Saharanpur, Kairana, Muzaffarnagar, Bijnor, Nagina, Moradabad, Rampur and Pilibhit. The eight constituencies where voting took place on April 26 were Amroha, Meerut, Baghpat, Ghaziabad, Bulandshahar, Aligarh, Gautam Buddha Nagar, and Mathura. Of these 16 constituencies, at least 11 constituencies have a Muslim population above 20%. There are indications that in these two phases, Muslim voters may have resorted to voting to bring about a change, and the candidate's faith may not be a factor. This has been often referred to as actical voting where the sole aim is to ensure the defeat of a candidate whose party is considered to be apathetic to Muslims interests. Advantage INDIA bloc? In this case, voting to ensure the BJP's candidates defeat could have led Muslim voters to support either the SP-Congress INDIA bloc, or the BSP. It appears that the community could have preferred the former in most places, while the BSP could be preferred only in places where the INDIA combine is thought to be weaker. This is endorsed by Professor Hilal Ahmad, a veteran political analyst and social scholar. He says that Muslim voters appear to be in favour of the INDIA bloc, regardless of the result. In many districts, there have been reports of voters, including women, having voted in favour of the SP-Congress combine, he said, but added emphatically that the Muslim voter is totally silent with no proclamations from community leaders whatsoever. This, however, does not mean that the results will be follow the same pattern in all the Muslim-dominated seats. For the record, the 2014 Lok Sabha election saw the BJP winning at least eight such seats, including Amroha, Bijnor, Moradabad, Muzaffarnagar, Nagina, Rampur, Saharanpur and Sambhal. But in 2019, the SP-BSP fighting in alliance, won 15 seats including in Muslim-dominated Amroha, Bijnor, Moradabad, Rampur and Sambhal. Another fact to be remembered is that despite general perception that Muslims were voting against the BJP, the party succeeded in getting a percentage of the Muslim votes in the 2022 Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. This came out in a post-election survey by CSDS-Lokniti which suggested that least eight per cent of the Muslim votes went to the BJP. Also, the BJP has gone into the 2024 election in alliance with the Rashtriya Lok Dal which has been favoured by Muslim voters in its stronghold areas. Even during the campaign for the first phase, BJP leaders accompanied RLD leaders in Muslim-dominated areas. UP battle shifts from Jat land to Yadav stronghold All this could mean on the one hand that Muslims are disillusioned that no party has shown faith in them, but rather than abstaining, they will vote for the candidate considered to be the BJP's strongest rival. On the other hand, they could also accept the BJP candidate for the simple fact that the state has a BJP government headed by Yogi Adityanath and no purpose may be served in getting identified as a non-BJP voter till 2027 (when the next Assembly election is scheduled). According to Anshuman Shukla, a veteran political analyst and columnist, although Muslims have increasingly voted in a unified way, political and social mobilization has highlighted divisions along sub-identities like caste and sect among them. This explains the BJP's outreach -- and success -- with Pasmanda Muslims, a term that includes backwards, Dalits and tribal Muslims. According to many researchers, the held belief of Muslims voting en bloc may not be completely true, an idea also suggested in a study Mapping Muslim Voter Behaviour in India by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Even some Muslim scholars agree that Muslims are increasingly getting divided along caste and sectarian lines, an example of which is the lukewarm response to Asaduddin Owaisi after he announced his decision to contest in UP with the Apna Dal (K). Anshuman Shukla says that even though figures show that Muslims could play a crucial role in deciding the result in more than 25 seats in UP, the results will show a different picture.

Amit Shah Predicts 'Congress Dhoondho Yatra' as Conclusion of Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra

Amit Shah Predicts 'Congress Dhoondho Yatra' as Conclusion of Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday attacked Rahul Gandhi, suggesting that his party will get such a drubbing in election that he will have to take out a 'Congress Dhoondho Yatra' after June 4. Addressing an election rally in Bareilly, Shah alleged that Rahul, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and SP's Akhilesh Yadav did not attend the Ram Temple consecration ceremony in Ayodhya fearing this may alienate their vote bank. ''The 'shehzade' (prince) of 'ghamandia' INDI Alliance started his election campaign with Bharat Jodo Yatra but on June 4 (counting day), it will end with a 'Congress Dhoondho Yatra','' Shah said. ''In the first two phases, Congress is nowhere, while Narendra Modi has made a century and taken a lead in the '400 race' (race to 400 seats),'' he said. He said that this election is for ending terrorism and Naxalism and making India the third major economy globally. Shah hit out at the INDIA bloc partner Samajwadi Party, saying it indulges in dynastic politics, for its president Akhilesh Yadav has given tickets to five members of his family in the current election. He said that while Akhilesh is contesting from Kannauj and his wife Dimple Yadav is in fray from Mainpuri, Akshay Yadav, Aditya Yadav, and Dharmendra Yadav, all three his family members, are contenders from Firozabad, Budaun, and Azamgarh. ''Had he given a ticket to some Yadav youths, it would have been better,'' he said. Shah said that for the past 70 years, Congress had been stalling the Ram Temple construction, a task the BJP finished. ''When you made Modi PM for the second time, within five years, we won the case, did the groundbreaking, and performed the consecration ceremony of the temple on January 22. Samajwadi Party chief Akhliesh Yadav, Dimple, Rahul and Priyanka, all were invited by the temple trust but they did not attend the consecration ceremony because of the fear of their vote bank,'' Shah said. ''You all know who their vote bank is,'' he added. On revoking Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, he said, ''Congress president asks what do people of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have to do with Kashmir. He doesn't know that for Kashmir, every child of Bareilly can sacrifice his life In Kashmir, our tricolour is flying with pride.'' On the ''surgical strike'' after Pulwama attack, Shah said that under the past Congress governments, there was no reprisal for such acts and anyone could enter the country and do bomb blasts. ''We did a surgical strike inside Pakistan to get rid of terrorists.'' Shah claimed that Uttar Pradesh was riven with communal riots till 2017, when Yogi Adityanath came to power, made it riot-free, and stopped residents' exodus from western UP. ''In Yogi's regime, it is the hooligans who are migrating,'' he said. In Samajwadi Party's UP, factories forged country-made pistols, but now they manufacture tanks and missiles that will be fired on Pakistan, he said. Claiming that the Opposition's INDIA bloc is torn with internal differences, he said, ''Akhilesh wants to become a chief minister. Sonia ji wants his son (Rahul Gandhi) to become the prime minister. Those who are working to make their family members PM and CM, can they think of the poor's welfare?'' In Budaun, Shah referred to renovation and other work done on religious places by the Modi government. ''Be it 'Mahakal ka darbar', Kedarnath Dham, Badrinath Dham or covering with gold of Somnath temple, Modi made places of faith more energetic. Will SP, BSP and Congress do that?'' Shah said. Referring to Akhilesh and Rahul, he said when he stood up in Parliament to introduce the bill to abolish Article 370, ''do ladke'' stood against it and claimed the bill will lead to bloodshed in the valley. ''No one has the courage to pelt a stone there. At Lal Chowk, where no one could go a Krishna Janmashtami procession was taken out,'' Shah said on the post-Article 370 Kashmir. He said that the Congress government did not have courage to counter terrorism due to fear of erosion of its vote bank. Rahul's grandmother (Indira Gandhi) gave the slogan of 'Garibi Hatao' but did nothing to see that it happens on the ground, he alleged. He said Rahul and Akhilesh called COVID vaccine ''Modi ki vaccine'' and ''did politics'' on it when the country was battling a pandemic. ''Akhilesh himself went in the night and took the vaccine with Dimple Bhabhi,'' he said. Bareilly and Budaun will go to poll in the third phase on May 7.
