BJP president Amit Shah and the top new leadership of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) engaged in prolonged and intense deliberations with Sarsanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat and Sarkaryawah Bhaiyyaji Joshi.
Within an hour of Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu rejecting the impeachment bid, Shah took to Facebook and alleged that the Congress had taken “the only path it knows very well — of spreading hate and divisions in our society”.
The court was hearing a plea against the Gujarat High Court order which in February revived a gag order against the news portal and debarred it from publishing any article related to businesses of Jay Shah.
Shah said the top priority of the government, which is led by his party, was to ensure security on borders and handling terrorism strictly by adopting a zero tolerance policy.
“Both Modi ji and Yogi ji have done tremendous work to change the state of Uttar Pradesh in the last one year and I assure you all that we will make UP the number one state in five years,” said BJP president Amit Shah.
Nityanand Rai, who was accompanied by Bihar BJP vice president Devesh Kumar, said that Congress party did not stop raising accusing fingers despite the late Judge’s family stating that he died of heart attack.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi had targeted BJP chief Amit Shah, saying “the truth has its own way of catching up with people like him” as Shah was among those discharged in the Sohrabuddin case.
BJP President Amit Shah, former minister of state for Home, Gujarat, was one of the accused in the fake encounter case and was arrested in 2010. He was later discharged by a CBI court in Mumbai from the case.
The SC on Thursday dismissed a bunch of petitions seeking an independent probe into the death of judge Loya, who was handling the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, in which Shah was once an accused and was later discharged.
Records show that special CBI judge Brijmohan Harikishan Loya died of a heart attack in Nagpur, Maharashtra, on December 1, 2014. The petitioners, however, had moved the Supreme Court alleging he died under “mysterious” circumstances.
Amit Shah urged BJP workers to raise this issue before people of Karnataka, which goes to the polls on May 12.
On the second day of his tour, BJP president Amit Shah will meet party workers and leaders from the state. He will also meet industrialists and traders from the state to discuss various issues with them .
Mevani was scheduled to deliver the speech at a function organised by Baba Bhimrao Ambedkar Jayanti Samaroh Samiti as part of Ambedkar’s 127th birth anniversary celebrations.
“The best opportunity to put an end to the politics of the Congress party begins in Karnataka when the elections are held next month,” said Amit Shah
At the residence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Shah held meetings with leaders of the two allies — Apna Dal and Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) — separately and assured them that their issues would be redressed.
