While the police in Ganganagar, Rajasthan, have been unable to find its MP, Union Minister Nihal Chand Meghwal, to deliver a court summon, Meghwal showed up at Kalyanpuri in the national capital for a BJP rally. “My address in 17, Teen Murti Marg. Anyone can find me there, night and day,” declared Meghwal at the rally.

While the controversy over Meghwal going “missing” was put to rest after he sent his lawyer to represent him in court, the police in Ganganagar had told the court a summon could not be served at Meghwal’s Rai Singh Nagar residence because he shifted to New Delhi and the new address was not known to the police. Nihal Chand, the lone MP from the Rajhasthan to get a berth in Narendra Modi Cabinet, is accused of sexually exploiting a 20-year-old woman.

At Kalyanpuri, Meghwal focused his energies on criticising AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal. “Kejriwal betrayed the people of Delhi. He said if he comes into power, he will put Sheila Dikshit in jail. Instead, he took support from the Congress. The people of Delhi will punish him for his betrayal,” he said. He also made references to Bhagat Singh.

In a speech that was studded with repeated praise for PM Narendra Modi, Meghwal counted BJP’s achievements since coming into power. “BJP keeps its word. We brought down inflation and fuel prices are going down. We will inaugurate a university here on December 14,” he said.

He also promised that with the BJP in power, India would return to its former status of being the “vishwa-guru”  and “sone ki chidiya” (golden bird).

    I only raped a girl, but kejri resigned from CM's post. I can talk about vishwa guru, but what does kejri knows about education who simply got a degree from IIT? Only highly educated and morally sound person like me, Namo, Smriti can make India a citadel of knowledge

          Plz stop fooling people...Someone tell this that reason of reduced fuel prices and inflation is mainly because of almost 40% reduced fuel price in international market and not because of BJP Govt. Rather govt didn't even shared 100% benefit of lower price to public.
