Naqvi takes to cricket jargon to hit back at Congress 5.7.2015 deccanherald.com
With Congress continuing to gun for Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje for helping controversial former IPL boss Lalit Modi, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi took to cricket parlance to hit back, saying the opposition party was on a "slippery pitch" and should eschew "hit and run" tactics. Naqvi, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, said a "confused Congress" was making new allegations every hour, making it difficult for the government and people to understand what it really wants. "The Congress party, when it was in power, used to get hit wicket everyday. Now in opposition, it is bowling no balls. They should understand that when the pitch is slippery, it is better to wait and watch then play. They need some net practice to play the role of a constructive and effective opposition," Naqvi told PTI. He was asked to comment on External Affairs Minister Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje extending help to Lalit Modi in securing travel documents in the UK. Extending his cricket analogy, Naqvi ...

BJP meets to plan strategy for Bihar 5.7.2015 Asian Age: India
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after launching an awareness campaign for Safety in Schools. (Photo: PTI) Struggling to catch up with the ruling JD(U) after they launched their door-to-door campaign a couple of days ago, the BJP’s central leaders, which included Union minister and Bihar election in-charge Ananth Kumar, reached Patna on Saturday and convened a closed-door meeting with the state leaders. Sources said Mr Kumar and other state leaders are trying to draw strategies to counter the JD(U) in the upcoming Assembly election. The JD(U) had got a good response on the first day of its “Har Ghar Dastak Campaign”, which was kicked off by chief minister Nitish Kumar from a BJP stronghold near Patna. Party leaders refused to talk after the meeting was over, terming it as “crucial and highly confidential”, but sources revealed that some leaders, including state president Mangal Pandey, asked the central leaders to declare former deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi as the CM nominee in order to end the turmoil ...

Scam: After Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Chhattisgarh CM Raman Singh in trouble 5.7.2015 Asian Age: India
Chhattisgarh CM targeted over Rs 36,000 crore rice scam After the alleged involvement of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje in Lalitgate, two more chief ministers, Mr Shivraj Singh Chouhan (Madhya Pradesh) and Mr Raman Singh (Chhattisgarh), are in serious trouble. Speculation is rife that both could be in line to face the axe in the near future. While Mr Chouhan was under a cloud over the multicrore Vyapam scam, Mr Raman Singh has become a target for the Rs 36,000-crore rice scam. Both chief ministers are reportedly spending a “lot of time” in Delhi meeting some top and influential leaders in the Modi government. The BJP top brass is now waiting for the Bihar polls before swinging into action and taking decisive steps, sources said. Incidentally, the Vyapam scam is emerging as the BJP’s, and the Centre’s, main concern. With the international media rushing to Madhya Pradesh and the matter reaching the Supreme Court, BJP spin doctors are now working ...
