Till when will PM listen to Rahul

Posted on 06 June 2020 by admin

Since the time lockdown began, both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi have been giving suggestions to PM Narendra Modi, for example, one thousand rupees direct cash transfer in labourers’ and workers’ accounts. Rahul requested the PM to announce that the stranded migrants will be ferried safely to their homes and after this, the buses and shramik trains were started. After this Rahul said that 7,500 rupees should be directly deposited in workers accounts. The PM was mulling over it when the BJP and Sangh leaders put some pressure that if Congress’s demands are adhered to then the party would take its credit in front of the public and thus RG’s demands have been put in the cold bag.

Shivraj’s ‘rule’ conundrum

Posted on 06 June 2020 by admin

The ‘saffron’ Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chauhan wanted to expand his cabinet on 1st June and after several permutations and combinations, he finalised a list and sent it to Delhi for approval. But the BJP high command has not given its green signal to the list. As such this time around it was not easy for Shivraj to finalise the names of ministers since several individuals who left Congress and joined BJPO with Scindia are in line to be provided ministerial positions. And for this, Shivraj had to delete names of several of his loyalists, for example, his faithful MLA and former leader of opposition Sagar Gopal Bhargava was offered the position of Speaker but he declined. In this lockdown crisis, Shivraj has another front opened as he has to get the government bungalows vacated from ministers of Kamal Nath government since Kamal Nath government spent thirty-eight crore rupees in the renovation of these bungalows and now these ‘beneficiaries’ are not vacating their bungalows. However, Kamal Nath himself is vacating the Chief Minister’s residence located at 6, Shyamla Hill and shifting in his old house.

Mamata’s anxiety and Uddhav’s friendship

Posted on 06 June 2020 by admin

The tussle as to how many ‘Shramik Special’ trains will be given to which state had not even ended that the Amphan cyclone hit West Bengal and Odisha. In this, the railways announced a train from Mumbai to Kolkata. After Amphan, several parts of Kolkata and even the entire state had been badly hit as electricity poles had been uprooted, waterlogging in cities had occurred and there were pressing issues of electricity and water supply. When Mamata started worrying that if Shramik express brings in more people, how then will the state make arrangements for them and how will these people be sent to different parts of the state. Mamata believed that there was some ‘trick; on Centre’s part and thus she immediately called Uddhav and sought his help. Mamata argued that in this time if they come across positive patients, how and where will they keep them. Uddhav on the other hand reportedly told Mamata, “Didi, do not worry. The Bengali workers who want to go back we will speak with them and will try to hold them here. We will also try to find jobs for them here so that they stay in Maharashtra”. it was after this that Mamata took a breath of relief.

Can Union Government suspend state governments under the garb of Corona?

Posted on 06 June 2020 by admin

It appears that Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s ‘reign’ is not going down well with former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, and hence when the opportunity presents itself he complains about Uddhav to BJP top leadership and Sangh. The latest developments related to MLC election in Maharashtra made Fadnavis believe that if Uddhav does not get elected to the MLC he will have to vacate the position. However, Thackeray junior spoke directly to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and soon the notification for the same was issued in a haste and Uddhav was chosen to the legislative council. If sources are to be believed, after this ‘crushing loss’ Fadnavis suggested to the top BJP leadership that after few cosmetic changes, the 123-year-old Epidemic Diseases Act 1897 can be enforced in Maharashtra, West Bengal and Delhi where Corona is spreading at a fast pace. Fadnavis hinted that the union government, taking the support of the Act, could render the state government’s powerless and take the charge of running the states. After this, the legal experts were consulted and it was found that the central government can not take over the complete rights of the states but it can only take steps to stop the spread which means that the centre would be able to take only health-related policy decisions. Suspecting some ‘threat’ the Delhi government quickly enforced Delhi Epidemic Act 2020 and Maharashtra government enforced Covid-19 Regulation 2020. as such, there is a possibility that if any state government does not enforce the Epidemic Act properly then the Central government can suspend the state government. But this ‘possibility’ is marred with legal ‘entanglements’.
