Rahul Gandhi got his facts on UP backwards – DNA

In uttarpradesh on November 17, 2011 at 3:39 am

Rahul Gandhi’s claim that Mayawati’s Uttar Pradesh is “backward” is merely rhetoric. In fact, recent development figures released by the Manmohan Singh-led UPA II government contradict the claim.

Gandhi on Monday kicked off the Congress’ campaign for the assembly elections in UP. Addressing the crowd at Phulpur, Allahabad district, he remarked that UP was moving backwards while the country was moving forward. But the Planning Commission has painted a different picture of the once Bimaru state.

A “muslim league ” in making in UttarPradesh ?

In uttarpradesh on October 11, 2011 at 7:24 am

The fledgling 34-month-old Peace Party of India (PPI) is thinking big. Last week, its founder-president Dr Mohammad Ayub announced that his party would contest 350 of 403 Assembly seats in 2012. He also set his own terms for forming alliances with other parties: end corruption, fight communalism, implement the Ranganath Mishra Commission’s recommendations and fight for social justice for uplift of Muslims, Dalits, Extremely Backward Castes (EBC) and backwards among forward castes. “For us even the BJP is not untouchable provided it drops its communal agenda,” Ayub told INDIA TODAY.

A surgeon in remote Barhalganj, 50 km from Gorakhpur, Ayub has been making calculated political moves since he formed the PPI in February 2008. His electoral plans are ambitious. First he created a social coalition of Muslims, Dalits, ebcs and economically backwards among forward castes. Then, he allied with Ram Vilas Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), Indian Justice Party led by Udit Raj, Momin Conference, Bhartiya Samaj Party, Janvadi Party and National Lok Hind Party. The PPI’s coming second in the November 20 Lakhimpur Sadar bypoll boosted its morale as it pushed the Congress to fourth position. In the June 2009 Dumariaganj Assembly bypoll that was won by the BSP, the PPI came in third. Ayub’s experiment with seeding Brahmin candidates in Domariyaganj and Lakhimpur worked, as a majority of Muslims voted for non-Muslim candidates. When the PPI made its electoral debut in the 2009 General Elections, it came sixth among 124 national and regional parties going by the percentage of votes. It had contested 21 of the 80 seats from Uttar Pradesh.

BJP Spokesperson H.N. Dixit says that Ayub’s strategy is a

विसर्जन जुलूस पर पथराव, हालात बिगड़े – Jagran Yahoo! India.

 

लखनऊ, जागरण टीम। पुलिस और प्रशासन की नाकामी एक बार फिर सौहार्द पर भारी पड़ गई। बहराइच और गोरखपुर में सीमित सुरक्षाबल के बीच निकाले जा रहे विसर्जन जुलूस पर अराजक तत्वों ने अचानक पथराव शुरू कर दिया, जिसके चलते जुलूस में शामिल हजारों की भीड़ आक्रोशित हो उठी और माहौल गर्मा गया।

अफरातफरी के बीच बहराइच जिले में मिहींपुरवा के पुरानी बाजार में बने एक व्यवसायिक कांप्लेक्स की तीन दुकानों में आग लगा दी गई। अराजक तत्वों ने कई घर भी फूंक दिये। वहीं, गोरखपुर जिले में विसर्जन जुलूस में श्रद्धालुओं पर शुक्रवार रात साढ़े दस बजे मुड़ेरी गांव में स्थित एक धार्मिक स्थल से पथराव हुआ। इससे जुलूस में शामिल लोग आक्रोशित हो गए और जबाव में ईट-पत्थर चलाए। इस घटना से दोनों जिलों में देर रात तक माहौल तनाव पूर्ण बना हुआ था। इस दौरान प्रतिमाओं का विसर्जन फिलहाल रोक दिया गया है। पुलिस-प्रशासनिक अधिकारी भारी पुलिस व पीएसी बल के साथ मौके पर डटे हुए है। देर रात तक स्थिति को नियंत्रण में करने का प्रयास जारी था।

बहराइच जिले के मिहींपुरवा बाजार में प्रतिष्ठापित सात देवी प्रतिमाओं के साथ ही नानपारा, उर्रा आदि क्षेत्र की प्रतिमाएं शुक्रवार को विसर्जन के लिए गायघाट स्थित सरयूतट ले जाई जा रही थीं। इसी बीच जब मिहींपुरवा कस्बे की अंतिम मूर्ति का जुलूस निकल रहा था, तभी पुरानी बाजार चौराहे के पास एक घर की छत से कुछ युवकों ने पत्थरबाजी कर दी। पत्थर फेंकने के चलते मूर्ति खंडित हो गई। जिससे साथ में चल रही भीड़ भड़क उठी। गुस्साए लोगों ने मूर्तियां सड़कर पर रखकर प्रदर्शन शुरू कर दिया। इसी को लेकर दोनों ओर से बात बढ़ गई और भीड़ ने व्यवसायिक कांपलेक्स की एक दुकान में आग लगा दी। आग की लपटें एक के बाद एक दुकान को अपने आगोश में लेती गई। इसके चलते स्थानीय निवासी आफाक, नियाज और अमजद की दुकानें राख हो गई। इसके बाद अराजक लोगों ने स्थानीय व्यवसायी परमहंस मदेशिया के घर पर हमला कर कई घर फूंक दिए गए हैं। मिहींपुरवा कस्बे में भी तोड़फोड़ की घटना शुरू हो गई है। सीओ नानपारा और एसडीएम नानपारा को पीएसी की टुकड़ी के साथ मौके पर भेजा गया है। डीएम डॉ.पिंकी जोवल और अपर पुलिस अधीक्षक रामस्वरूप ने तोड़फोड़ और आगजनी की घटना को स्वीकार करते हुए कहा कि स्थिति को नियंत्रित करने का प्रयास चल रहा है। मौके पर बड़े पैमाने पर फोर्स भेजी गई है।
