Congress, Akalis must apologise to farmers for misleading them : Chugh 



BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh today squarely blamed the Congress, the  Akalis and AAP for conspiring against farmers and mislead them on the three agriculture bills.

Chugh said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought the three bills to improve the plight of farmers and to help them double their income. “Farmers welfare has been the top priority of the prime minister but political parties like Congress and Akalis are now misleading farmers “, he said.

Chugh questioned Akalis for standing against the bills after initially lending support to them in the Parliament.  “Akalis are playing hoax on farmers now,” he said asking what morality Akalis have to oppose the bills now.

Chugh lambasted the Congress and AAP for playing politics over the bills by beguiling farmers.

He said Congress in the past never made any efforts to improve the fate of farmers and instead drove them to heavy indebtedness with false promises.

Chugh slammed the Congress for make false promises of waiving farmers loans worth Rs 90,000 crores in election manifesto and  fooling them for petty electoral gains.

Chugh asked the Congress for seeking public apology from farmers for cheating and deceiving them.

All the three agriculture bills are in the interest of farmers and opposition should stop playing politics on them, Chugh added.


Accused In NC Leader Wazir’s Murder Case Was Inspired By Bollywood Film ‘Drishyam’




In a bizarre revelation, police in Delhi revealed on Thursday that the accused in the murder case of 67-year-old National Conference leader Trilochan Singh Wazir’ had been planning the crime for nearly three months. The police also found that the accused were “inspired” by the Bollywood film “Drishyam” and tried to mislead the police by planting fake evidence.

Elaborating on how it all happened, police said that Harpreet had called his classmate Chaudhary to Delhi from Mumbai on August 14, assuring him of the job of a taxi driver here.

On the directions of Harpreet, he left Delhi on September 1 from Basai Darapur and went to Punjab and switched off his mobile number and started using another number in Jammu, they said. On September 2, he collected Wazir’s luggage from his house in Jammu and left for Delhi. However, police said he switched on his number again in Punjab and came to Basai Darapur on September 3 via a taxi.

Chaudhary left the spot at around 11.30 am to collect his bag left in a taxi (as per their planning) and returned from the Kashmere Gate area at 5.30 pm, adding that he remained at the spot with others co-accused Harpreet, Harmeet, and Billa. He, along with Harpreet and Harmeet, went to the terrace and planned to kill Wazir.

Harpreet handed over one pistol to Harmeet. They came back, and Harmeet allegedly shot Wazir, who was already unconscious due to their sedatives, police said. With Harpreet and Harmeet, Chaudhary cleaned the blood from the spot and shifted the body to the washroom. After that, the police said they planned to dump the body at a metro station or IGI Airport and visited the places but couldn’t succeed in their plan.

A senior police officer said that the accused planned the murder over the past two to three months on the Bollywood movie “Drishyam” and created false evidence to mislead the police. The call detail records analysis revealed that Harpreet called several numbers in Jammu after September 3. One of the numbers was found registered in the name of Chaudhary’s mother, the officer said, adding that later, Rajinder was arrested from his in-law’s house on Tuesday.

During the investigation, it surfaced that in 1983, a triple murder took place in the Jammu area. First, one Kuldeep alias Pappi, who was Harpreet’s maternal uncle, was killed using swords.

A senior police officer said that Wazir was arrested in that incident and was lodged in jail for around three-and-a-half years.

The police said that facts are being verified, including whether Wazir’s murder was related to that incident.

In Uttar Pradesh, the Firozabad district reported “mystery fever” in August, with the government later confirming it was dengue. The state’s Health Minister Jai Pratap Singh told The Associated Press that most cases were caused by dengue, a seasonal viral infection spread by mosquitoes, followed by leptospirosis, scrub typhus, and malaria.

There has been a surge in dengue cases among children in many districts of Uttar Pradesh. The Uttar Pradesh health minister Jai Pratap Singh had informed that the state government is taking all the possible steps to control the outbreak of viral fever in the state.

In Madhya Pradesh, more than 2,500 people have been infected by dengue so far this year, a health department official was quoted by news agency PTI on Sunday. The admission rate of dengue patients in hospitals was around 20 per cent, MP programme officer (for control of vector-borne diseases) Dr Himanshu Jayswar told the news agency.
