Congress on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not including the issue of women’s safety in the 10-point agenda announced by him.

“For a PM who won elections with ‘Women Safety’ as a major plank — surprisingly totally missing from the ’10 Point Agenda’,” AICC general secretary and communication department chairman Ajay Maken tweeted.

The remarks came on a day when Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi visited Badaun in Uttar Pradesh and met family members of the two gang rape victims who were found murdered.

Earlier, the party had attacked Modi over his 10-point governance agenda and termed it “Ten Commandments”. Congress had said the agenda was just an “extraordinary jumble” and has nothing to write home about the vision of BJP government. “We have been waiting for a vision from BJP government, we have instead been rewarded with diversion of the Ten Commandments…this 10-point agenda.

“I have been taken aback by the extraordinary jumble they have inflicted upon the nation,” party spokesman Shashi Tharoor had told reporters.

    How the stand of BJP changes when they are in Opposition and in power Abki baar U-Turn Sarkar, The INC is not at all worried with this merger as it believes that the united and undivided people of India would strongly vote for them only. TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu has declared that his party has decided to join the NDA fold amid protests from cadres of TDP and BJP with the sole intention of routing the UPA.

      How the stand of BJP changes when they are in Opposition and in power Abki baar U-Turn Sarkar, Venkaih Nidu, Sushma Swaraj. How within a period of few months everything has turned upsides down for them. I will not be surprised Uma, Kalyan and Ramdev Ma will meet the same fate in not so distant future.

        Thanku Rahul kanwal for the Super coverage on Smriti's fake affidavits, Badaun's Rape and Pune vandalism, In past, I think Priyenka hi involvement in the election campaign will surely bring something positivity. One can always trust the Congress. She pla an important role in shaping the respectful image of the Congress party.

            Thanku Rahul kanwal for the Super coverage on Smriti's fake affidavits, Badaun's Rape and Pune vandalism, salute to your courage.NaMo words shows the culture and teachings which he has got from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh sakhas where he spent most of his young days after running away from his young wife.

              Time for PM Modi to extend to CM Yadav the Raj Dharmaadvice and ask him to take substantive, decisive action in Badaun. NaMo says he works for people. But he has sold off Gujarat petrochemical industry to Reliance. Mukesh Ambani’s brother-in-law, Saurabh Patel is Minister of Petrochemicals in Gujarat.

RT if you agree, Advani inadvertently and subconsciously often speaks his heart out. Advani heart of heart also knows that Narendra Modi is not the right man for the country. But as of present times he cannot help but talk good about Modi. Modi is trying his best to back him.

Whatever may be the case with INC it has by and large fulfilled its promises. Inflation is something that could not be controlled. But no other government could have either controlled inflation. This election is a make fool exercise. There has been growth and development in BJP ruled states though they boost a lot about it. Akalis are the same. They made big promises to the people of Punjab all still remain to see the light of the day.

                    BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, directing that the unidentified bodies of Godhra train victims should be handed over to Jaideep Patel, a non-governmental person, that too belonging to a supremacist and communal VHP to be brought to Ahmedabad where aggressive funeral processions in full public view were allowed. Modi directed this at a meeting at the Collectorate in the evening of 27.2.2002 before he returned to hinagar. Jaideep Patel was allowed to be present at an official meeting at the Collectorate. Jaideep Patel is a co-conspirator and also facing trial for m crimes in the ongoing Naroda Gaam case. Modi is specifically guilty of allowing the escalation of violence from Godhra to other parts of Gujarat and taking decisions contrary to law.

                      BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, just look at 2002 riots , Willfully Ignoring Messages from State Intelligence about the Violent Repercussions of the RSS-VHP called ‘Mahayajna’ before the tragic Godhra incident on 27.2.2002 and deliberately not initiating precautionary measures that are imperative under Standard Operational Procedure; messages from 7.2.2002 to 25.2.2002, including specific ones that stated that batches of 2,800 and 1,900 kar sevaks had left for Faizabad-Ayodhya and had been behaving provocatively and aggressively against minorities on the way. As cabinet minister for home and chief minister, he is directly responsible MOS Home Gordhan Zadaphiya is a constant Co-Conspirator.

                        BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, just look at 2002 riots , in stark contrast, the Amicus Curiae senior advocate Raju Ramachandran looking at the same evidence collected by the SIT, came to a contrary conclusion, stating clearly that there was evidence enough to prosecute Narendra Modi. Faced with this dilemma of two contrary essments, the Supreme Court remanded the matter to a lower Court directing SIT to file its Final Report there. The SC specifically directed that if the SIT filed a closure report, the Complainants were fully within their legal rights to file a Protest peion and access all Investigation papers/doents.

Deliberately allowing photographs of the burnt corpses to be taken and widely circulated by the RSS-VHP and media in general, despite it being prevented under law.

                            BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, just look at 2002 riots, brazenly supporting the Bandh call called by the VHP and allowing the streets and public spaces of Gujarat to be used for m attacks and violence. By 12 noon on 27.2.2002, state intelligence and the police were aware of the Bandh call; the bandh was uses by the police machinery to clear the streets of ordinary citizens so that aggressive mobs could target minority potions and their establishments.

                              BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, just look at 2002 riots, conspiring with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad to plot and allow reprisal killings all over Gujarat. The first phone call that Modi makes after DM Ravi’s fax reaches him is, not to appeal for peace and calm, but phone secretary VHP, Gujarat, Dr Jaideep Patel and direct him to Godhra. The Conspiracy between Modi and the VHP is hatched and unfurled to cynically ensure state-wide reprisal killings. Phone call records show these phone calls between PA to Modi AP Patel and Jaideep Patel immediately after the chief minister receives news of the Godhra tragedy. Phone call records made available by Rahul Sharma (IPS, Gujarat) also show that Powerful Accused was in touch with the chief minister’s office (CMO) and the landline numbers of the chief minister.

                                BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, personally instigating individual RSS-VHP men and women at the railway yard at Godhra uring them that enough time will be allowed by the Modi-led government and administration to extract a revenge for Godhra.

                                  BJP should respect people verdict but never forget congress is only secular political party in country, the Zakia Jafri Criminal Complaint against Narendra Modi and 59 Others was ordered to be investigated by the Supreme Court. Zakia Jafri & CJP have been attempting to get serious criminal charges registered and investigated since 8.6.2006. The Special Investigation team (SIT) originally asked to further investigate None Major Trials was igned the task (27.4.2009). Amicus Curiae were also appointed to ist the Court. The SIT in its reports from 2010 arrived at the conclusion that while several of the allegations were found to be correct, there was not sufficient material to prosecute the accused.

A determined person can achieve everything.By the way say Hi to Digvijay singh, Beniprasad Varma, Salman Khurshid, Abhishek Singhvi.
