Didi warns of nat'l movement against FRDI bill 16.12.2017 DNA: India
TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, at the TMC core committee meeting on Friday, said that just like the way the party had started a national movement against demonetization, it would do a similar one against Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance (FRDI) Bill, uniting Congress and all anti-NDA regional parties against it. It was found out that the main point of opposition would be the bail-in clause in the FRDI Bill according to which the government would bail-out a bank trouble, which would, in turn, mean that other stakeholders, shareholders and even depositors would be saving the financial entity. "It involves the interest of crores of people. We have been told by the CM that the matter would be immediately raised within and outside the parliament. She had also said that TMC would play a pivotal role in bringing all the anti-NDA parties together just like she did in demonetization," said a senior TMC leader on condition of anonymity. Mamata had earlier done this protesting ...

Gujarat Elections 2017 | If BJP wins, we will intensify our agitation: Hardik Patel 16.12.2017 DNA: Money
Even as exit polls predict an easy victory for the ruling BJP in Gujarat, the road to power might turn out to be anything but smooth for the party. Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel has now declared that if the BJP comes to power, the reservation agitation will continue with greater intensity. "We have not stopped the agitation. It will not be stopped until our goal is achieved. In the event the BJP comes to power, we renew the agitation for reservation with more vigour," said Patel. "Goli maarna hai to maar de, mein jaan deene ko taiyaar hu," said Hardik about his plan to agitate if BJP comes to power. He, however, also insisted that the Congress would win over 100 seats. "There is a lot of anger among the people against the BJP," adding that the Congress formula was acceptable to him and the party would implement it when it came to power. "If the Congress fails to do so, we will continue the agitation against them too," said Hardik. Even before the elections, Hardik held several ...

Gujarat Elections 2017 | Ravan's arrogance had ruined Lanka: Hardik Patel 12.12.2017 DNA: India
Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel compared BJP's development theory with Ravan's Lanka. The 24-year-old quota protest leader was addressing a rally at Patidar-dominated Nikol in Ahmedabad on Monday. He also urged people to vote BJP out in the upcoming Assembly elections. Addressing a crowd of around 25,000 people who turned up to listen to him around 9 pm, Hardik said, "We have heard in Ramayana that there used to be Ravan's kingdom Lanka, and it was built of pure gold. King Ravana had also carried out development works, but the entire kingdom of Golden Lanka vanished because the king became arrogant. The BJP was talking about development a week ago, but has now diverted to Ram Mandir, Hindu-Muslim and India-Pakistan. They are lying, and you should not fall in their trap." "What would Pakistan gain from Gujarat polls? They are trying to divert the issue, but we need to stay united. Ignore all kinds of threats or fears you received or felt. Let us them show our strength; they are ...
