Munna Bajrangi killed in Bagpat jail

Mafia Don, Munna Bajrangi, has been murdered under judicial custody in Bagpat district jail on Monday this week. Munna was a recorded historysheeter criminal of Eastern UP, many cases of heinous crimes had been registered against him in Varanasi. On the other hand the historysheeter’s wife, Seema Singh, had alleged that STF was looking for execution of Bajrangi's murder 10 days ago.
Seema Singh, after the execution of this murder, has alleged the involvement of Mr. Manoj Sinha, Union Minister for Railway, and Mr Dhananjay Singh, former MP, including other high profile leaders of government for hatching conspiracy in this murder case.
According to Seema Singh, The lead of this murder story is that the former MP, Dhananjay Singh, Manoj Sinha, the Union Minister for Railway, Alka Rai, BJP MLA and the wife of former MLA, Krishnananad Rai with others -- all had hatched the conspiracy of this murder. She added she will carry the body to Lucknow after postmortem to hold a Dharna at the chief minister’s office. These person were not interested to let my husband join the politics. She has added that she is not aware of bounty given by someone to Sunil Rathi.
Seema said that many attacks over my husband had been tried and its complaint we had forwarded on behalf of my hubby to many government agencies, but none took it seriously. What happened here was already in my conscience. Munna’s wife, alleging STF for encounter, had made a call CM for security; and later no avail, she approached high court where the court has directed to Jhansi jail authority not to shift into other jail her husband till further order.
It is very noticeable that Muuna Bajrangi, the close aide of Mukhtar Ansari, was shifted from Jhanshi to Bagpat jail on Sunday, and he was killed in jail on Monday morning. He would have appeared before court in the case of ransom demand by the former BSP MLA, Lokesh Dixit that he was killed.
The judicial inquiry has been set up. Police statement is that Sunil Rathi killed Bajrangi on Monday morning. 4 jail officials including staff have been suspended.
Whether the STF was in hunt for Munna Bajrangi or High profile leaders were intending to eliminate him? in both conditions the murder was executed in judicial custody. While the murder in jail reveals that there was already bickering of some foul play because Sunil Rathi was aware of Munna’s arrival to jail, and the weapon in jail cannot be said it was mere a part of jail authorities' abetment.

Natsamrat review

By on Saturday, May 26, 2018

ALOK CHATERJEE AND RASHMI MAJUMDAR as Ganpat Rao Welvalkar, Natsamrat, and Kavery respectively at Sangeet Naty Academy Sant Gadge Auditorium Lucknow on May 24 this week -- photo by Kshitiz Kant, THE BUNT LINE

Natsamrat, Yes, it is the story of a stage play actor who had been a main actor in every of hundred plays; consequently, he was bestowed the title of Natsamrat on stage; then he took his superannuation from the world of play.
A fatigue man goes upstairs of stage; appears in front of the raising curtain; and offers the flowers of worship on it, disguising himself in the wrapped Saries.
This man wears black cap in his head, Nehru style; begins his conversation with the convincing audience while introducing his family members or other stage players.
The story begins with the dispensing of his accumulated meager cash he earned during his many stage plays.
As he handed over his Rs 40000 to his son and gives the cheque to his son-in-law for his Germany visit; his wife, Sarkar, says premonition that let the man may assign his all assets to his beloved and close one dearest, but never hands over his own mat beneath wherever he sat.
Play plot is based upon the story written by VV Shirvadkar; the director of this play was Jayant Deshmukh; and it was first in Lucknow on invitation by Rang Pakhi organization dedicated to the stage play. The story was translated from Marathi to Hindi by Sachchida Nand Joshi.
Alok Chaterjee was in role above 60,played his vital acting role as Ganpat Rao Welvalkar. His soliloquies on stage in pitch voice were attracting every audience. The estimation of touch to heart could be reckoned on the clapping of presence repeatedly.
The lethargic walk on stage with his old age wife, named Sarkar, impersonated like very emergence of reality.
Kavery Welvalkar (Rashmi Majumdar), in wife role, was in her complementary with her husband; and the reality of stage was like at an actual performance.
The son Nandan, Harsh Mishr, was most obedient of his parent, but his daughter Laddo (Angel), approached to Ganpat Rao to share her pleasure story of school event where a VIP guest had talked with this girl on her stage performance and asked about her training man who had given her; she replied him -- by Ganpat Rao Welvalkar! Natsamrat.
The autolatry guestman who well acquainted with NatSamrat says to the girl: “say  my respectful gratitude and compliment to Walvelkar ji.”
Capricious Walvelkar, as he had pledged to this girl to act an abusive scene, and he starts in high voice his verses; his daughter- in-law, without knowing the event, intercepted Walvelkar and began to insult him absurdly speaking filthy talks.
 Sarda (Priyanka Garg), played her daughter in law role excellent.
The saddened by Sarda’s behavior,  both Kavery and Walvelkar leave their home and were assured of better days with her daughter, Nalini(Anjali Singh).they go to her home.
They live at her home for a few months; then Walvelkar is suspected that the money saved in the cupboard was stolen, which shocks Kavery and she dies of heartfell. Natsamrat leaves her daughter's home in the resent and grief and began to wandering on road as a vagabond.
Raja (Ansh Payan Sinha), played role as street tea seller, gives shelter to Walvelkar.
Walvelkar’s daughter and son both eventually search him through Vithobaa and request to return with them, but Walvelkar dismisses their rights of carrying him back and dies on the stage.
The play is based on the story of present scenario of behaviors among the culture, which has detached them from their reverence to their elders, but this story’s message is now secondary; first is the play characters who had no retake performed this play flawlessly on stage of Sangeet Natak Academy at Sant Gadge Auditorium Lucknow this week on May 24.

BS Yeddyurappa resigns as Chief Minister ahead a minutes of trust votes

By on Sunday, May 20, 2018

The BS Yeddyurappa led BJP government in Karnataka has gone before the trust votes take in Assembly floor test. 
The test failed to Yeddyurappa is said because the monitoring role of Congress' MLAs was very sincere, and that the duty done for success is in the spotlight now indicates one man – name, DK Shivkumar! 
It is noticeable that DK Shivkumar is the man who had harboured the Congress MLAs in Karnataka during Gujarat Assembly election result declared.
The failure of Yedurrappa was so because Congress MLAs were not fixed ably by the BJP to leak into the trust votes. The BJP needed 7 more MLAs short to its majority to prove the trust votes on the House floor. 
The MLAs of congress and JDS were held under full protection away from the BJP team. The BJP leaders were seen to be failed to connect with the Congress MLAs. DK Shivkumar played a daring role to protect the Congress and the JDS MLAs.
DK Shivkumar has made failed all the remedies and strategies of BJP's access up to  MLAs of the Congress and JDS. He had planned all the strategies for plying of MLAs from and their stay at hotel.
The preparation to protect the MLAs from the BJP had been chalked out a plan. The Congress had all its MLAs signed within 24 hours of result declared. 
All the MLAs were put under scanner then. The command of MLAs  had been taken by DK Shivkumar to protect them from the affinity of BJP team. Initially they were stayed in his resort.
Exactly after BS Yeddyurappa’s taking oath as chief minister of Karnatka, congress shifted its MLAs to Hyderabad, and the congress leaders at New Delhi, changing this matter into the law base wrestling, knocking the door of Supreme Court. 
The apex court fixed time frame of 24 hours to carry the floor test of majority in the Assembly on May 19.
Next day Congress brought them back to Bengaluru from Hyderabad. The MLAs of Congress were properly monitored. DK Shivkumar instructed to the MLAs before going to the Assembly House and said that none of our MLAs would talk with the BJP’s MLAs. 
No reaction of reply is to act even on being poked by the BJP’s MLAs, nor have we to quarrel.
Congress MLAs reached in Assembly when the House began. The Congress MLAs had no instruction for leaving the House on being postponed the Assembly during the lunch hour.
After the oath taking when the house was adjourned for two hours on lunch time; in the wake of this, no Congress MLAs went out; they were delivered the lunch packet at their table.
The BJP was failed desirably to connect the Congress MLAs under this strategy; consequently disappeared MLAs Pratap Gauda Patil and Anand Singh both be back in the House. The congress leaders had them put under their monitoring; had them mealed; and had them sat beside.
Janata Dal-Secular leader H D Kumaraswamy today said the Congress-JDS combine was not in a hurry and was awaiting an invitation from the Karnataka governor for government formation in the state. 
"We are not in a hurry. We are waiting for an invitation from the governor," he told reporters, soon after the BJP's B S Yeddyurappa announced his decision to quit as Karnataka chief minister without facing the vote of confidence in the assembly.
Asked about the future course of action, Kumaraswamy said the leaders of the Congress and the JD-S would sit together and take a decision on it.
The Congress has already categorically stated that it will be a Kumaraswamy-headed government in the southern state.
The May 12 Karnataka assembly polls threw up a hung assembly, with the BJP emerging as the single-largest party with a tally of 104 seats, but falling short of a majority.
The Congress-JD(S) combine has staked the claim with the governor to form the government, saying they have 117 MLAs in the 224-member House, with an effective strength of 221.
Polling for two seats was not held due to various reasons, while Kumaraswamy won from two places.
The Supreme Court had yesterday ordered a floor test in the Karnataka assembly at 4 pm today, drastically slashing the 15-day window given by Governor Vajubhai Vala to Yeddyurappa to prove his majority.

Flow of politics and Natural Voice of Democracy

By on Friday, May 18, 2018

The BJP is still toiling to prove it majority in Assembly. Congress and JDS both parties are also trying to have their MLA unite, but how long will they be able to do so is not clear.
Congress MLA, Anand Singh, has left the party. He has communicated about his resignation to the party. It is clear that if he has resigned, it will tend to help BJP to prove its majority.
Now the congress and the JDS both parties head can shift the MLAs somewhere else from Bengluru tonight. The JDS MLAs are stayed at Shangri-la hotel and Congress MLAs will stay in Crown plaza hotel
Asenior leader of congress said, "Where the MLAs will halt shall be decided in the meeting to be held at 8 PM". He said that the MLAs can be carried either to Andhra Pradesh, Vshakhapatnam, Punjab, and Kocchi or President house new Delhi.
The MLAs of Congress Party are in Ellington resort at Bengluru. 2-3 MLAs have left the party so far. Where the resort is situated, the officers have been changed. Even Yedurappa Government has transferred the SP of district Ram Nagar.
Many political events happened after the declaration of Assembly election results in Karnatka. Nomatter, on Wednesday night, while hearing  the apex court denied to stay to the swearing-in of BSYedurrappa, but the court was not satisfied with the argument of the BJP.
Congress knocked the Supreme Court's door on Wednesday midnight for this matter when the governor Vajubhaivala sent invitation to the BJP to form the government in Karnataka. The counsel of Congress and the counsels of Government both side argued whole night. The triple judges bench heard the case from both side and then predawn announced the judgment that BSYedurappa will take oath
The case was heard by the bench of Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice Arjan Kumar Sikari and Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde. Additional Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta and Attorney General, KK Venugopal appeared on behalf of Union Government. Former Attorney General, Mukul Rohatgi, appeared for the BJP and Manu Singhavi appeared for Congress.
The counsel for Union Government contended before the Apex Court that  the Anti defection law is not applicable  to the  newly MLAs for Karntaka Assembly because they do not have their oaths so far.
This argument was dubbed 'rubbish' and the court said, “ It means to invite the MLAs for the purpose of horse trading.”
Abhishekh Manu Singhvi contended before the Apex Court that the BJP cannot claim its majority unless it promotes the defection among the MLAs.
The court has said that the matter will be seen under Anti-defection Law.
KK Venugopal said that it is no compulsory that so be it.  If a member joins other party, the defection is said then. Unless the MLAs take oath of his post, the Anti-defection Law cannot be applicable over them.
Supreme Court denied the stay of swearing in ceremony of BSYedurrappa, but the bench was not satisfied with the argument. After hearing the argument, the court posed questioned, “Whether you mean that the MLAs can follow the defection process before the oath.” The court was wondered over the BJP’s achieving the majority figure of 112.
Abhishek Manu Singhvi stressed, “The governor cannot deny the democracy…. on the first side 104 members exist and on the other, 116… it is comprehensible, which figure is bigger?” how Yedurappa is claiming more than half of MLAs are supporting. Court said that it had not seen the letter of support entrusted to governor, but to call Yedurappa for the government formation is not correct under the current mathematical calculation.
