Khalistan supporter Amritpal Singh is still in hiding, Punjab Police has issued look out circular and non-bailable warrant against him. 7 pictures have been released of him in different looks. The Punjab and Haryana High Court reprimanded the state government and asked what were 80,000 policemen doing when they were roaming around with weapons? Justice NS Shekhawat’s comment is not against the Punjab Police, but it is about the political will of the Punjab Government. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s comment that ‘whoever raises an eye against Mother India will not be spared’ sounds good but questions are being raised by the Congress. When did Amritpal come to Punjab? Who made him a big celebrity? Why was the Punjab government sleeping last month when Amritpal and his supporters gheraoed the Ajnala police station, injured policemen and freed their accomplice? Why did Punjab Police take a month to take action against Amritpal? Amritpal and his disciples were not working underground in Punjab for the last seven months. They were openly holding meetings, talking about Khalistan, distributing pamphlets and posters and inciting the youth of Punjab. At that time, why didn’t the senior leaders of Aam Aadmi Party listen to the slogans being raised against Mother India? These are the questions that need to be answered. This is not the time for political wrangling. Catching Amritpal Singh, the enemy of the country, is the first priority. To achieve this objective, the Punjab Police and the State Government should exert full force. I talked to many people in Punjab. Most of them said, the situation in Punjab is normal at the moment, because the people of Punjab are patriots, they love their native land and they do not want enemies to raise their heads again in Punjab.

Controversy over Delhi’s budget

The Delhi budget had to be postponed for a day due to the political tussle and Finance Minister Kailash Gehlot presented it in the Assembly on Wednesday. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal blamed the lieutenant governor and the Union Home Ministry for the delay, but the BJP blamed Kejriwal for the delay in answering the Centre’s queries. Be it the budget of Delhi, the election of the Mayor of MCD, the appointment of officers, both the Delhi Government and the Center have always been at loggerheads. Kejriwal accuses the Center of harassing the people of Delhi. One reason for this is that Kejriwal is not ready to accept Delhi as a Union Territory with an elected legislature. Delhi has not got full statehood. This is the main problem. This is not the first time that the budget of the Delhi government has been sent to the Center for approval through the Lieutenant Governor. After the signature of the LG, the budget is placed in the assembly. Earlier, Arvind Kejriwal sent Delhi’s budget to the Center for approval 8 times and every time Narendra Modi’s government approved it. There was no dispute during this. Why was the approval delayed this time? Actually, there is a lack of trust between the Center and the Kejriwal government. Both do not trust each other. Whenever there is a lack of trust, allegations are bound to happen.

‘Mir Jafar and Jai Chand’

There is a lack of trust between the BJP and the opposition in Parliament as well. The deadlock continued on Tuesday due to sloganeering. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra called Rahul Gandhi the ‘Mir Jafar’ of Indian politics for seeking foreign intervention. In return, the Congress leaders referred to the BJP leaders as ‘Jaichand’. Mir Jafar was the general who betrayed Siraj ud-Daulah, the Nawab of Bengal, at the Battle of Plassey and helped the East India Company gain a foothold in India. Countering this, Congress spokesperson Pawan Kheda told BJP that Jaichand had helped Muhammad Ghori in the fight against Prithviraj Chauhan. Political parties may get some benefit in this war of words, but the common man will benefit only when the functioning of the Parliament starts again. Right now such possibilities are bleak.

mehul choksi and interpol

In November last year, political rhetoric between the BJP and the opposition erupted after it was revealed that the Commission for Control of Interpol files (CCF) removed the name of fugitive Indian businessman Mehul Choksi from the red notice list. Choksi is wanted in the Rs 13,000-crore Punjab National Bank fraud case and is currently hiding in Antigua and Barbuda after fleeing India in 2018. “Interpol has been informed that wanted criminal Mehul Choksi is making all out efforts to sabotage the ongoing extradition proceedings in Antigua and Barbuda to evade the process of law in India,” the CBI said in a statement. But on the basis of fanciful and unproven conjectures, the five member CCF (Commission for Control of Interpol Files) decided to withdraw the Red Corner Notice, which was informed in November, 2022…. CBI has criticized this baseless and reckless decision. The CCF draws attention to the serious lapses, procedural violations, and mistakes committed by the CCF in accessing the CBI. The statement of the CBI is self-contradictory. is in talks and on the other hand, it has asked the Interpol body to put Choksi’s name back on the Red Corner list. The CBI should own up to its mistake and rectify immediately. When investigative agencies and their officials make mistakes The government has to bear the brunt of this.
