People in Godhra want to bury past; talk of jobs, power 10.12.2017 Deccan Herald - TOP STORIES RSS FEEDS
Fifteen years later, Godhra is all ready to bury the past and talk about the future. Few here want to relive the violent images of the Gujarat town that triggered riots in the state in 2002. They would rather discuss jobs, persistent power cuts and poor infrastructure which Godhra's voters believe are issues of concern in the ongoing Assembly election. That Godhra does not figure in the electoral or  political discourse in the state gladdens the heart of 30-year old Asim, who runs a motor vehicle's repair shop here. "I am happy that no big leader from any party is talking about Godhra this ti

Gujarat Elections 2017 | Godhra, where locals are back to basics of life even as scars remain 8.12.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
It's 6 PM in Godhra. A power cut has plunged the road that stretches out in front of the railway station into darkness. This is the same stretch that earned infamy around 15 years ago after a coach full of kar sevaks was burnt down in Godhra on the other side of the railway station. Fifty-nine people had died in the incident. The rains that poured under the impact of cyclone Ockhi makes the ride on the rundown road tougher. At a time when 'Janeudhaari Brahmin' and 'Babar bhakt' remarks are back in the political discourse in the run-up to the Assembly elections in Gujarat, Godhra is trying hard to keep pace. The election fight this time is between two leaders with Janata Dal roots — C K Raulji and Rajendra Patel — who are contesting on BJP and Congress tickets, respectively. Muslims are clearly inclined towards the Congress, but what can trouble the BJP more is the rebel factor from within. However, the BJP has made good inroads into the backward Bakshi Panch community, which has 90,000 votes as against ...

Indian economy back on track, GDP expands 6.3% in July-Sep quarter: Who said what 30.11.2017 DNA: India
Bouncing back from a three-year low, Indian economy has reversed a five-quarter slide in GDP growth to expand by 6.3 % in July-September quarter.  According to data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the GDP for Q2 stood at Rs 31.66 lakh crore, registering a growth of 6.3%, up from 5.7% reported during the first quarter of 2017-18.  Chief Statistician T C A Anant hinted that the GDP numbers could be revised upwards as businesses uncertain of the new Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime may have accounted for lesser taxes.  While the government was upbeat with the positive growth which came just ahead of the Gujarat Assembly polls, Opposition leaders said this was too early to arrive at a conclusion and government should wait longer to beat its chest.  Here is how people across the country have reacted to the GDP numbers:  Arun Jaitley, Union Finance Minister Government’s reforms to push economic growth are working can be seen from that manufacturing has shown robust growth of 7% in Q2 and services ...

Gujarat elections 2017: Overlooked for ticket, BJP MP Prabhatsinh's wife dares him 25.11.2017 DNA: Popular News
After being overlooked by the BJP for a ticket for the upcoming elections, Rangeshwari Chauhan, wife of Godhra MP Prabhatsinh Chauhan, dared him to set foot in Kaalol. She also criticised the party for selecting her stepdaughter in-law as its nominee. Rangeshwari, the third wife of Prabhatsinh Chauhan, was among the aspirants for the BJP ticket from Kaalol Assembly seat. Chauhan also threatened to quit if the party did not field his wife. Ignoring the threat, the BJP announced Suman Chauhan, wife of the MP's son Pravinsinh, as its candidate from Kaalol. After learning that she had been denied a ticket, Rangeshwari dared her husband to set foot in Kaalol and campaign there. She also lashed out at the party and her stepson's wife, who was selected as the candidate. "There were 22 ticket seekers from Kaalol Assembly. I want to ask BJP president Amit Shah a question: if the ticket was to be given to a woman, weren't there other women more capable than Pravinsinh's wife?" she told Zee 24 Kalak. She claimed ...
