Nitish Kumar should raise SC/ST quotas in Bihar: Jitan Manjhi 23.5.2018 General News
Hindustan Awam Morcha(HAM) president Jitan Ram Manjhi today demanded that the Nitish Kumar government raise SC/ST quotas following the example of Tamil Nadu. Manjhi, a former Bihar chief minister, was reacting to Kumar's statement yesterday that ST/ST quotas could be rasied after the 2021 census and that state governments did not have the power to increase reservations. Manjhi, who had quit THE JD(U) and floated his party three years ago after being forced to step down and make way for Kumar's return, also claimed that if the Bihar chief minister failed to do the needful while having an alliance with the party in power at the Centre (BJP), it would be "a reflection on his lack of commitment to the Dalits' cause". "Nitish Kumar is simply trying to save his face by making populist but ambivalent gestures. If he is serious about the SCs and the STs getting a greater share, he should follow the example of Tamil Nadu where reservations stand at 69 per cent," Manjhi told ...

'Welcome move that stopped formation of BJP govt in Karnataka' 22.5.2018 General News
Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for allegedly using tactics to stay in power and form governments in states without winning elections.Speaking to ANI, Yechury claimed that he was attending the swearing-in of H.D. Kumaraswamy as Karnataka's chief minister to welcome the move that stopped the BJP from forming the government in the state."This has been their (BJP's) motto-to form the government whether they win the election or not. They did the same thing in Goa, Manipur, Meghalaya, and now, in Bihar. They are in power not because they have the support of the people but by offering money, exploiting the constitution as well as the democracy. However, this has not taken place in Karnataka. We welcome this and it is very good for the country and democracy. We are going there to welcome the move that has stopped the BJP from forming a government," he said.Yechury further expressed his concern over the recent

JP gets pride of place in JD(S) advertisement 22.5.2018 General News
In a gesture high on symbolism, Jayaprakash Narayan, the man who galvanised India and brought down the Indira Gandhi government after Emergency, has found the pride of place in newspaper advertisements put out by the JD(S) a day before it forms the government in Karnataka. The full page jacket advertisement by the JD(S) has the image of JP, as Narayan was fondly called, in the middle, while those of party supremo and former prime minister H D Deva Gowda and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi are to his right. The photographs of Congress president Rahul Gandhi and BSP supremo Mayawati are on the left side of the advertisement. JP's photograph is being seen as an attempt by the JD (S) to send out signals to the splintered Janata Parivar and other non-NDA parties to come together ahead of the Lok Sabha polls next year, like the socialist leader united different political forces against the Indira Gandhi government. Narayan, initially a Congressman, was a key figure in the Quit .
