Why # I Stand with Arvind

News reports last evening claimed that the Delhi government had ordered the Directorate of Information & Publicity (DIP) to monitor the news channels from 9 AM to 11 PM and provide a report to the office of the Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal. This followed the Delhi CM’s tirade against the media in which he accused them of having taken a contract to finish off the Aam Aadmi Party and demanded that the media be out on a public trial. His deputy Manish Sisodia’s didn’t want to be left behind and suggested that media needed to go for meditation. And why not? After all, Arvind Kejriwal's vipassana experiment has helped him to become a calm political leader.

One cannot help but agree with the views of the Delhi CM and Deputy CM (and also with other leaders of the AAP like Kumar Vishwas). The CM is right to suggest that some sections of the media have taken a “supari” to finish off the AAP and is completely justified in expending taxpayers' resources in the services of monitoring the media so that it does not succeed in its endeavour. After all, the AAP is the govt in Delhi and the govt is the AAP. In fact it would be even better if the services of AAP volunteers (the paid variety) were taken by the DIP to fulfil the requirements of this new anti-supari sub-division.

The media in Delhi has taken a jaundiced view of the AAP govt in the city-state ever since it was sworn in riding on a massive win with 67 out of 70 seats. This, despite the fact that the Delhi govt took the media-friendly decision of preventing their entry into the Delhi secretariat for the benefit of transparent governance of course. Some sections of the media complained about this even though it was done to ease the burden on reporters and give them the benefit of work-life balance.

It didn’t just stop there. The anti-AAP conspiracy was played in full public view when two small-time leaders like Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were talking about silly stuff like inner-party democracy. To report day and night their side of the story when the pro-Arvind faction was giving the “real true picture” was plain biased and not how media is supposed to function. It made a spectacle of the unfortunate issue and then forced the hand of the Arvind faction to throw the two men and their few supporters out. Then to blame AAP and Arvind Kejriwal for being undemocratic ways was the height of bias and “supari” behaviour, as it was clear to everyone (who agreed with AAP) that the situation was forced by the media itself.

The Delhi government has been hard at work in Delhi trying to solve problems or create them and then solve them. Like the protest-cum-rally organised at Jantar Mantar against the draconian land Bill brought by the Central government. The AAP wanted it to be a surprise so it didn’t take any permissions to organise the event at Jantar Mantar and some supari-chewing sections of media tried to make an issue out of that as well. The turn of events at the rally was unfortunate and a farmer committed suicide, live, in front of the media and the AAP leadership and it was made worse by the media when it reported the statements made by AAP leaders after the suicide as it was; how callous and disrespectful! It was a shameful attempt by the same media to blame the fiasco on AAP rather than the police which had denied the permission to hold the rally in the first place or the Union government or someone else other than the AAP and its leaders.

Some people have called this fiction-based tirade of the AAP against the media a sign of victimhood complex, a paranoia. This couldn’t possibly be more untrue! It is as baseless and fraudulent as the reportage on the Law Degree of the Delhi government’s law minister. The question is not whether the degree is real or not but why it has been reported about. Is it even newsworthy to report that the law degree of a law minister is said to be false by none other than the university? And that too a university in a state which is not ruled by AAP and which doesn’t even have an internal Lok Pal!

Such shenanigans of the media leave no doubt in my mind that it has decided to finish off AAP in lieu of free supari. It has tried to hide behind the stupidity of facts rather than listen to the AAP govt and its representatives, especially the CM, who has rightly sought a trial of the media at a public square. If the media will not be accountable to the chief minister of a party with 67 out of 70 seats then what hope is there for this country! At this hour it is important for us to stand with the paragons of victimhood and I do just that. #IStandWithArvind. more

Dear Vinod Singh ji,
SIR,
I TOO FULLY AGREE WITH YR COMMENT ON MEDIA, CAN THEY DARE TO UTTER A SINGLE WORD AGAINST MODI?, ABOUT 2002 RIOT MASS KILLING IN GUJARAT OR ABOUT NITIN GADKARI'S CAUGHT IN FINANCIAL IRREGULARITIES BY CAG IN HIS PURTI GROUP(WHERE EVEN GADKARI'S DRIVER ALSO MADE A DIRECTOR TO EVADE.......),
CAG HAS TABLED THIS REPORT ON 1ST MAY 2015, AND CONGRESS SHEDDING CROCODILES TEAR BY ASKING GADKARI'S RESIGNATION.
मीडिया के ऊपर नकेल कसना जरूरी है। 67/70 सीट आने के बाद तो आप के खिलाफ बोलने के लिए कुछ बचता ही नहीं। फिर भी बेशर्म मीडिया वाले आप के खिलाफ बोले जा रहे हैं। इससे स्पष्ट है कि मीडिया को सुपारी मिली है आप को बर्बाद करने के लिए।

Dear Mr J Bhusan
Why the media is so worried/scared, they can defend them in the court of law.
Media hilighted day after day that Gadkari has booked AK on defamation case, 4 that he(AK) had 2 go to Jail also for refusing to furnish bond. This was regarding Gadkari's Purti group in which his driver was a director too & many more things were exposed...... .
But CAG tabled report on it on 1st May....
TOI : dated 09.05.2015 page 1 & 14(Gadkari must quit)
Cong: Choose between GST and Gadkari
New Delhi: The Congress-led opposition on Friday prevented Rajya Sabha from functioning by demanding the resignation of road transport minister after federal auditor CAG censured Purti Group for not repaying the loan it took it took from a government agency. ………………
But no media cared to air this report of CAG exposing Gadkari(which was exposed long back by AK, who is fighting a defamation case instituted by Gadkari on this)

...........Attacking the BJP-led central government over corruption, Kejriwal said, "Recently, the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of the Delhi government arrested a constable red-handed while taking bribe. We sent him to jail but we soon started getting calls. The Commissioner of Police also called up ACB head asking him to transfer the case to them.
"Why should we transfer the case when they cannot keep a check on corruption? Acting against us, the Delhi Police registered an FIR of kidnapping against ACB. Delhi Police is not doing this but BJP is making them do this.
"When the case went to the court, Delhi Police said that it doesn't come under Delhi government and we cannot arrest them. But the judge refused to listen to their argument and gave the ACB three-day custody of the constable. They also lost the case in High Court," Kejriwal said.
EVERYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY IS WATCHING HOW BIASED MEDIA IS.
NEVER THE LESS AS AK SAID , THIS WILL CONSOLIDATE AAP's POSITION ALL THE MORE, AS IT DID EARLIER AT DELHI ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS...

Dear Dheeraj Kochar ji,
Sir,
U FORGOT TO MENTION MODI's FALSE PROMISES TO VOTERS BEFORE LS POLLS ALREADY EXPLODED IN DELHI ASSEMBLY POLL RESULT: CONG 00/70, BJP TOO NEAR ZERO 00*3/70
For refreshing all in this blog, I submit below:
Modi is worst than Congress, BJP is looting the country at a much more faster pace than Cong. Modi govt will supersede Cong's loot in long 60 yrs in only 5 yrs.
All fertile land from farmers(innocents who voted Modi 2 power) will b snatched away from them by the Modi ordinance on land bill in even less that 5yrs.
Already more that 600 farmers have committed suicide in last 4 months in Maharashtra alone.
I can cite numerous corruptions in Modi govt with higher magnitude never before.
Quote from news channel debates yesterday even 070515:
Modi keeping most vital posts like CVC, CIC etc vacant.
Lokpal being delayed deliberately by Modi.
Now Modi's design is : none can accuse corrupt persons in his govt, there is free loot for all.
1. CVC of AIIMS removed 4 exposing corruption.
2. Rs 600 cr doled out from tax payer's money to Modi's friend in need Adani from SBI for extracting coal from Australian mine, when all foreign banks turned down loan request of Adani as his company's financial status did nt qualify 4 d minimum requirement eligibility caterina(ON RECORD IN ALL NEWS CHANNELS).

Modi lured d voters before LS polls by making tall promises, all of which found to b mere lies.
Never the less Modi has been rewarded suitably on these false promises he made to poor voters, with interest by Delhi voters in assembly election 00*3/70, what a humiliation, in spite of fielding all his armory(All cabinet ministers, with control room in-charge, Arun Jetly, 200 MPs 4 CMs, & most of the medias at Modi/BJP's disposal.


The Parrot in cage is with Modi now from Congress.

I am recalling some past sensational news 2 refresh viewer's memories .......

For PM, Advice To Avoid Ministers With Criminal Cases: 10 Facts

File pic: PM Narendra Modi and his Cabinet after being sworn in
New Delhi: The Supreme Court today stopped short of disqualifying ministers with criminal cases, leaving the decision to the "wisdom of the Prime Minister", but made it clear that such ministers have no place in the government.

The court said as conscience keeper of the Constitution, the PM must avoid taking ministers involved in serious offences.
Here is your 10-point cheat-sheet to the story:
1. A Constitution bench of the country's five senior most senior judges said it is not for the court to issue any direction to the PM or Chief Ministers, but "it is the prophetic duty of this court to remind the key duty holders about their role in working the Constitution."
2. The court said it expected the PM to act with "constitutional morality and responsibility" and choose not to take ministers with doubtful integrity.
3. "Will any reasonably prudent master leave the keys of his chest with a servant whose integrity is doubted?" the judges asked, adding, "Corruption is an enemy of the nation. As a trustee of the Constitution, the PM is expected not to appoint unwarranted persons as ministers."
4. Today's ruling was on a petition that sought to bar MPs with "criminal backgrounds", including those charged but not convicted, from being appointed ministers at the Centre and in states.
5. India bans those convicted of serious crimes from holding office, but not those facing charges.
6. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP won a massive mandate to take power in May, partly on a promise of a clean government after the previous Congress-led administration was weighed down by corruption charges.
7. Thirteen of PM Modi's 45 ministers have been charged with criminal offences, eight of those involving serious charges, according to the Delhi-based Association of Democratic Reforms, a clean government advocacy group.
8. There are 13 cases against Water Resources and Ganga Rejuvenation Minister Uma Bharti, including two charges related to attempted murder and six charges of rioting.
9. MPs say charges against them are false or the result of political vendetta. Those convicted of crimes have traditionally continued in office by filing an appeal in India's notoriously slow courts.
10. In a landmark judgement last year, the Supreme Court ruled that MPs sentenced to more than two years in jail should be disqualified, even if they have appealed to a higher court. The UPA's bid to undo that with an ordinance fell through.


SC TO MODI ON BLACK MONEY ROW:
The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued directions to the union government to submit the names of all foreign bank account holders to the court by Wednesday, adding that it does not need to provide a “protective umbrella” to such persons.
The apex court bench, headed by Chief Justice of India HL Dattu, summarily rejected government's argument that revealing identities of legal account holders would be construed as a breach of privacy.
It said:
"Don’t give us your list... but the names given to you by France and Germany. If it breaches confidentiality, let it be."

Quote from HT Delhi edition dated 06.05.2015 page no 7
Govt can’t be part of judge appts as it’s the biggest litigator: SC

The Supreme Court on Tuesday put the government in a fix as it said that it could not be part of the proposed commission under the new law to appoint judges since it was the biggest litigator in courts.
