SMRITI IRANI’S DEGREE OF UNTRUTH
Finally, Friday is back and with it, it brings along a degree of truth or should we say lack of it. There is no point even wishing Smriti Irani a good morning, because, after yesterday, we hope she is having a better day today, with at least the lies off her chest now.
Irani, who had been rubbishing Opposition’s claim that she is not a graduate, in her poll affidavit, Irani accepted on Thursday, that she undertook her exams for Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) the first year from Delhi University’s School of Open Learning, but did not complete the three-year degree course. And if that wasn’t enough,
Union Minister Smriti Irani’s ”Man Friday” Ravi Dutt Mishra, at whose house she used to stay whenever she visited her constituency, joined the Congress party on Thursday.
FIRST PHASE OF ELECTIONS: EVM, MISSING NAMES, DISAPPEARING INK, TWO DEAD AND OF COURSE BJP MLA ASKING FOR MUSLIM WOMEN VEILS TO BE REMOVED
It is 12th April 2019 and the first phase of elections saw all the vagaries of Indian democracy, even as the polling continued in some polling centres in Andhra Pradesh past 10 pm. There was that incident on UP Police or should we say Yogi’s Police, was in a sticky position for carrying food in NaMo boxes. The Electronic Voting Machine came in for intense criticism, several complaints of malfunctioning electronic voting and paper trail machines, several voters claiming their names were missing from the electoral rolls, and the indelible ink mark on the index finger of voters being not so indelible in some cases
EVM malfunctions were reported from all districts of Andhra Pradesh, eight Lok Sabha constituencies that went to vote in western Uttar Pradesh, the northern-eastern states of Assam and Arunachal, and Uttarakhand, West Bengal and Odisha
Andhra chief electoral officer Gopala Krishna Dwivedi was not able to vote because of an EVM malfunction.
Two workers from the TDP and YSR Congress were also killed in Andhra Pradesh clashes but the cake should always go to Uttar Pradesh, which has all the answers on bigotry. Union minister Sanjeev Baliyan was asking Muslim women to remove their veils to check for fake voters at a Muzaffarnagar polling station, causing a standoff that prevented them from voting for over two hours. Well, he is no stranger to bigotry. The man is an accused in the 2013 communal riots that left more than 60 people dead and 50,000 families homeless.
ADITYANATH AND MAYAWATI GET SHOW CAUSE NOTICE FOR DIVISIVE REMARKS, BUT NOTHING FOR AMIT SHAH
And while we are on Fantastic Pradesh, with more orange than a Fanta bottle, looks like EC is finally doing its job and at least pretending to be neutral. Pretending, because I still fail to see how the complaint against Mayawati and Adityanath be the same. The Election Commission on Thursday issued a show cause notice to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his “Ali and Bajrang Bali” remark while addressing a rally in Meerut. His comments were in response to BSP supremo Mayawati’s appeal asking Muslims to vote for the opposition alliance in the state. At least with Mayawati, we knew she was addressing a Muslim crowd, I mean when in Deoband, who would you address?
I mean, just read or hear Amit Shah, who was talking about infiltrators who would not be sent back from India, Buddha, Hindu and Sikhs. I don’t know about Hindu’s but sure Buddha and Sikhs are no infiltrators. Obviously, that tag is only for Muslims and Christians, who the Shakha breds think have been corrupting India since millenniums.
CENTRE TELLS SUPREME COURT THAT VOTERS HAVE NO RIGHT TO KNOW WHERE THE MONEY FOR POLITICAL PARTIES IS COMING FROM. SC TO PASS VERDICT TODAY
Speaking of Corruption, you have to hear the arbid, totally absurd reasoning of Modi Government when it comes to the electoral bonds, that scheme , that not only makes black money white but also, fills up BJP’s coffers, makes Crony Capitalism and lobbying, as legit as demonetization.
For a party that wants to make India Corruption free, LOL, The Narendra Modi government has been vigorously defending the scheme that allows anonymous donors to buy bonds from banks to fund political parties.
Attorney General K K Venugopal Thursday said “transparency cannot be the mantra” and “my opinion is voters have the right to know about their candidates… why should they know where the money of political parties is coming from”.
If the identity of buyers of electoral bonds is not known, the government’s efforts to curtail black money in elections would be “futile”, the Supreme Court said on Thursday. The court made the observation on black money when the Centre said in response to a question that the issuing bank cannot say who bought which bond “So far as the electoral bond scheme is concerned, it is the matter of policy decision…,” attorney-general K.K. Venugopal told a bench that included the Chief Justice of India. The Centre asked the court not to interfere now and examine after the elections Venugopal, representing the government, said: “It is not the voters’ concern to know where the money comes from….” The court reserved its judgment which comes out today. An interim judgment, but it will definitely have consequences.
NEPAL BANS ONLINE GAME PUBG
Nepal on Thursday banned the popular online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), saying its violent content had a negative impact on children, an official told Reuters.
MILITARY OUSTS SUDAN’S BASHIR, PROTESTERS DEMAND CIVILIAN GOVERNMENT
But the big news that in still unfolding is in Sudan. President Omar al-Bashir, who ruled Sudan in autocratic style for 30 years, was overthrown in a military coup on Thursday, but protesters’ jubilation was short-lived as they took to the streets demanding military leaders hand over power to civilians. Announcing the ouster, Defence Minister Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf said Sudan would enter a two-year period of military rule to be followed by presidential elections. Bashir has been indicted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague and is facing an arrest warrant over allegations of genocide in Sudan’s Darfur region during an insurgency that began in 2003 and led to the death of an estimated 300,000 people.
JULIAN ASSANGE DRAGGED OUT OF ECUADORIAN EMBASSY AFTER 2487 DAYS
From Genocide, lets move to hacking and no not the Indian Right Wing sorts, but more Julian Assange style. Julian Assange is facing extradition to the United States and up to five years in prison after he was forcibly dragged from the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday, bringing an extraordinary seven-year diplomatic stalemate to an end.
After 2,487 days in the embassy, the 47-year-old was arrested after Ecuador revoked his political asylum
COCONUT OIL, SILICONE, BABY OIL & COOKING OIL IS CAUSING A PENIS DISFIGUREMENT IN PAPUA NEW GUINEA
That is pretty much all I have, except this last news story about botched up Penis enlargements. Doctors in Papua New Guinea have warned of a “nationwide problem” of men injecting foreign substances, including coconut oil and silicone, into their penises in an attempt to make them bigger, leading to penile disfigurement and dysfunction as a result of injections.
The substances injected include coconut oil, baby oil, silicone and cooking oil and the side effects are serious, sometimes irreversible.
So , please use Coconut oil for your hair , baby oil for the baby and cooking oil for cooking. Do cook up a storm for yourself. Have a wonderfulweekend and see you again on Monday. Thanks for listening. Good bye from takeapart.in
