aap-press-conference

Launching an attack on Delhi University (DU) over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s degree, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday sought to know if the university had computers in 1978.

Again highlighting the “discrepancies” in the graduation degree and marksheets of Modi, AAP leader Ashutosh said, “The name and marks of the candidate were printed in Modi’s marksheets released by the BJP. However, in the documents of other candidate who passed out in 1978, the name and marks were handwritten.

“Similarly, the university logo on Modi’s degree is printed in modern font while the original degrees had simple font. This clearly shows that the degree is fake,” he told the media here.

The AAP also countered the university’s claims that the degree was original and it had verified it…

“Similarly, the university logo on Modi’s degree is printed in modern font while the original degrees had simple font. This clearly shows that the degree is fake,” he told reporters in Delhi.

The Aam Aadmi Party also countered the university’s claims that the degree was original and it had verified it.

Referring to the DU’s response to an RTI filed by Maharashtra-based activist Anil Galgali, Ashutosh said the university had then said it did not keep records three to four decades old.

“Yesterday (on Tuesday), the registrar of the university claimed they have verified the records and that Modi’s degree was original. However, when an RTI filed by Galgali in 2015 asked for a list of all the graduates of 1978, DU responded they don’t keep three to four decades old records,” he said.

“Either the university lied in the RTI or it lied yesterday because if there were no records, how did they verify it?” the AAP leader asked. He further asked the university to comply with the Central Information Commission order asking it to make Modi’s degree public.

“Delhi University is a prestigious university. They should be loyal to the constitution of the country, not to the leaders of the ruling party,” said another AAP leader, Dilip Pandey.

A group of AAP leaders had visited the university on Tuesday to check Modi’s BA degree, but could not meet the vice-chancellor.

“We’re not being reimbursed for the kind of tremendous service that we’re performing by protecting various countries.

“Now Saudi Arabia’s one of them.”

The 69-year-old’s also claimed “Saudi Arabia wouldn’t exist for very long” without the US, despite being one of the world’s largest oil exporters.

He said: “If Saudi Arabia was without the cloak of American protection, I don’t think it would be around.”

His comments came just hours after he wasridiculed by stunned Britons for his TV interview with Piers Morgan.Viewers reacted with shock as the presidential hopeful discussed issues ranging from Brexit to gun control on ITV on Friday.One user labelled the entrepreneur “cringe worthy” as Trump “rambled on” about the golf course he built in Scotland.

The interview was branded “An hour of self promotion, weak answers & assertions” by user Jeremy Singer.The interview with Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan was shown in full on ITV on Friday night.

Mr Trump spoke his mind about the recent terror attacks in Brussels.He said: “I knew Brussels years ago and I was there three or four times, it was so beautiful and secure and safe and now it’s an armed camp.“It’s a different world and place, there’s no assimilation.

West Bengal: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi Asked to Campaign for BJP in Region, Official Says

West Bengal: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi Asked to Campaign for BJP in Region, Official Says

We have sent a proposal to the central leadership urging the prime minister to campaign in the state,” BJP state unit chief Dilip Ghosh told reporters.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit West Bengal towards the end of this month for election campaign, according to state BJP president Dilip Ghosh.

Ghosh said that the Bengal unit had suggested some dates for his campaign visit. “We want Modiji to campaign from towards the end of this month. We have sought dates for 3-4 phases of the poll, which will cover approximately 10 rallies. We are yet to receive confirmation,” he told reporters.

Dates had also been sought for BJP national president Amit Shah and other central leaders, he said adding the party was planning to rope in the chief ministers of states like Maharashtra, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh.

BJP is looking to increase its tally in a state where it has had nominal presence so far. The party drew a blank in the last assembly elections but later won a solitary seat in by-election. In Lok Sabha elections though, the party increased its vote share appreciably winning two seats. But with Modi wave receding, the saffron party haven’t made much of a splash in the subsequent elections. The party has roped in Netaji’s grand nephew Chandra Bose to contest against Mamata Banerjee.

Bharatiya Janata Party: Party Expels Youth Wing Leader for Unacceptable Language

Bharatiya Janata Party: Party Expels Youth Wing Leader for Unacceptable Language

Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha leader Kuldeep Varshnay was expelled for six years after he said he would pay Rs 5 lakh if someone cut off Kanhaiya Kumar’s tongue, news outlets reported.

Bharatiya Janata Party: Party Expels Youth Wing Leader for Unacceptable Language

A leader of the BJP’s youth wing who had announced Rs. 5 lakh as “prize” for cutting off the tongue of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, arrested last month on charges of sedition, has been expelled from the primary membership of the party for six years.

Calling himself a “dutiful citizen”, Kuldeep Varshney – Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha or BJYM’s Badaun district chief – had alleged that in his speech at the JNU campus after being released on bail on Thursday, Kanhaiya “insulted” the BJP, the RSS and Prime minister Narendra Modi and added that he announced the “prize” because he “could not tolerate” his comments.

“In his speech yesterday, he spoke against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the BJP and our Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji and also insulted our nation. Being a dutiful citizen, I could not tolerate this,” he told reporters.

Announcing the decision to expel him, the president of district unit of the BJP, Harish Shakya, also said that a notice to remove Varshney from the post was issued six months ago. “His statement is his personal one and the party has nothing to do with it.”

Kanhaiya was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, nearly three weeks after he was arrested on sedition charges for his alleged role in a February 9 event at JNU that marked the anniversary of the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, and in which anti-India slogans were raised.

Two hours after he was released from Tihar jail, he attacked PM Modi and the ruling BJP in a fiery hour-long speech at his university, surrounded by cheering supporters.

Two more students, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, have been arrested on the same charges. The case has led to mass protests and opposition allegations that the government is trying to crush dissent.

Mr Kumar has denied making anti-India remarks. Footage of him that was televised by some news channels has been declared doctored by a forensic lab that was asked to examine the video by the Delhi government.

Granting the student leader bail for six months with conditions, the court asked him to guarantee that he will not participate in any “anti-national activity” and that he will appear whenever required for investigations.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today alleged that his political rival H D Kumaraswamy of the Janata Dal (Secular) was conspiring to unseat him by joining hands with his detractors.

“He was a CM himself and is unbecoming of him to stoop to such level. Why should I wear a stolen watch? It is clear that he wants to unseat me… He is not tolerating a leader of the Backward Classes as the chief minister of a state,” Siddaramaiah told reporters in Bengaluru.

On Friday, Kumaraswamy alleged that the Hublot watch that Siddaramaiah was wearing was stolen from a NRI doctor’s home. He further alleged that the police, who recovered the stolen watch, instead of returning it to the owner, gifted the same to the police. However, the NRI doctor refused to be drawn into the controversy.
