PM Modi to address rally in Kolkata on April 3PM Modi to

No Comments

first_imgpolitics SHARE BJP workers prepare the stage for PM Narendra Modi’s mega rally at The Brigade Parade Ground in Kolkata. Kolkata’s historic Brigade Parade Ground, a preferred venue for protests, is set to witness its first covered rally on April 3 with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Covered hangars The sprawling Brigade Parade Ground will see at least nine covered hangars coming up for the first time. Each of these hangars can accommodate at least one lakh people. For BJP, the rally at Brigade assumes significance. Not just because it is a prestige issue or because the Prime Minister will address his first rally here since 2014 (when he was the PM aspirant), but primarily because this will be its first ever show of strength. “Filling up the Brigade is no mean feat and if the BJP does that, then the message to the Trinamool is clear. Moreover, a rally at Brigade is also a message on the saffron party’s seriousness about making inroads in Bengal,” a political analyst said on conditions of anonymity.Focus BengalFor BJP, West Bengal is one of its focus seats. Party President Amit Shah has been gunning for 22-23 seats from the State for quite some time now.Ground realities suggest that there is a BJP surge is some parts of the State. An aggressive Trinamool Congress and a shrinking space for opposition parties like the Left Front and Congress in Bengal has seen the rise of the BJP.A good show in the Panchayat polls in 2018 also bolstered the BJP’s prospects in Bengal.The surge has been most prominent in the north Bengal district, border areas (India-Bangladesh border constituencies) and in parts of Bengal tribal belts.iIt is likely that tThe BJP is expected to provide a tough fight or even spring a surprise in 4-6 of the 13 North Bengal constituencies that go to polls between April 11 and April 29.No wonder then that both Shah and Modi will focus on North Bengal districts as a part of their poll campaigns. In fact, Modi will hold a rally in Siliguri tomorrow morning before his rally at Brigade. COMMENTS April 02, 2019center_img Published on national politics SHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENTlast_img read more

Hobbled by poor health Jaitley opts out of Team Modi

No Comments

first_imgpeople Arun Jaitley (file photo).   –  REUTERS ministers (government) COMMENT government Outgoing FM requests PM-designate not to give any responsibility in the new government Outgoing Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday requested Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi not to give him any responsibility in the new government. The new government will be sworn-in on Thursday.With this, it is clear that the Finance Ministry will have a new head. Many names are being bandied about for the post, but there is no clear word on it.In a letter to Modi, Jaitley spoke about the health challenges that he is facing and referred to the oral communication that he had with the Prime Minister after the campaign in this regard. Though he was able to discharge the responsibilities assigned during the campaign, he would like to take a break, he said. “I would in future, for some time, like to keep away from any responsibility. This will enable me to concentrate on my treatment and health,” he added.He further said: “I am writing to you to formally request you that I should be allowed a reasonable time for myself, my treatment and my health and therefore not be part of any responsibility, for the present, in the new government.”He assured that he would obviously have a lot of time at his disposal to undertake any work informally to support the government or the party.The last one-and-a-half years have been very challenging for Jaitley. After a bariatric surgery in 2014, his health was okay till April 2018. However, after that, he stopped coming to the office due to a renal problem and underwent a kidney transplant on May 14, 2018. After a gap of four months, he resumed duty as Finance Minister on August 23, 2018. Again, early this year, he went to the US for a surgery and came back during the second week of February. On both the occasions, Piyush Goyal was given charge of the Finance Ministry and he also presented the interim Budget.Modi calls on JaitleyLate the evening, Modi met Jaitley at his residence. Though it is not clear what transpired in the meeting, it is believed that Modi asked Jaitley to reconsider his decision.   RELATED SHARE May 29, 2019 SHARE SHARE EMAIL Jaitley meets FinMin officials to review action plan for full Budget Published on COMMENTSlast_img read more
