Congress committed a historical blunder by imposing the Emergency, now the party is shrinking: Rajnath Singh 25.6.2016 DNA: Top News
Congress committed a "historical blunder" by imposing the Emergency on June 25, 1975, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Saturday, while attributing it as the "most important" reason behind "shrinking base" of the party. "Congress committed a historical blunder by imposing the Emergency on June 25, 1975. Now, the party is shrinking and its base is sliding. There are other reasons for it but the Emergency served as the most important reason and the party is still paying its price," he said after paying tributes to the prisoners of Emergency rule. Congress, which had its governments in many states, has now been "swept away" from the plains and confined to a few states in the mountains, he said. Attacking Congress for "limiting" itself to "repeating" Mahatma Gandhi's name, Singh claimed the "dreams" of Gandhi were being realised by BJP. "Congress used to repeat the name of Gandhiji and claimed to be following his path. If the working of Congress and BJP is compared, one would conclude that Congress ...
Amit Shah sounds poll bugle in Uttarakhand, slams Harish Rawat 25.6.2016 DNA: Top News
Describing the Harish Rawat government in Uttarakhand as "one steeped in corruption", BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday asked the people to dislodge it from power and help the lotus "bloom" in the state. "With a BJP government at the Centre, it would be ideal if there is a BJP government in the state as well. That would ensure smooth implementation of development schemes conceived for the state by the Centre," he said sounding the poll bugle from the party's Shankhnad rally at Rishikul Maidan here. Asking the people to get rid of a "corrupt government embroiled in scams", Shah said if they were looking for development, they should overthrow it in the 2017 Assembly polls in the state and let the lotus bloom. Mocking at Congress for accusing BJP of "murdering democracy" in the hill state, Shah urged the people never to forget June 25, the date on which former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had declared Emergency and "muzzled the whole nation". "You should never forgive those who imposed Emergency and ...

Financial emergency in Rio; state pleads for Olympic funding 18.6.2016 DNA: Popular News
Rio de Janeiro's governor declared a state of financial emergency Friday and requested federal funds to help fulfil obligations for public services during the Olympics that start Aug. 5.  Emergency measures are needed to avoid "a total collapse in public security, health, education, transport and environmental management," a decree in the state's Official Gazette said. The state's revenue, largely tied to the petroleum industry, slumped in the last two years as global oil prices collapsed.  The announcement followed this week's visit to Rio by Brazil's Interim President Michel Temer, who said the federal government would ensure all obligations are met for a successful Games. Rio is expecting about 500,000 foreign visitors during the Olympics, which has coincided with Brazil's worst recession since the 1930s and a political crisis that last month led to the suspension of President Dilma Rousseff.  "The state's financial emergency in no way delays the delivery of Olympic projects and the promises assumed ...
