Goa: GFP sends a strong message to VHP, says will deal with those who create communal disharmony 17.4.2017 DNA: Popular News
Hitting out at the VHP's claims that it will ban beef in the state, the Goa Forward Party (GFP), an alliance partner of the ruling BJP, said on Monday those who try to create communal disharmony will be dealt with strongly. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Sunday said that it is capable of imposing a total ban on cow slaughter and consumption of beef in Goa in the next couple of years, without the government's help. "I condemn the statement of the VHP leader who has said that the organisation will force ban on beef consumption in Goa in next one or two years," GFP leader and Goa's Town and Country Planning Minister Vijai Sardesai told reporters. "As a minister, I want to tell the VHP that any one who breaks the law will be dealt with seriously," he said. "In the past, Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik was trying to come to Goa... he has been banned by the state government. The VHP leaders who are making such statements will also meet a similar fate," he said. VHP's senior functionary Radha Krishna ...

Assembly Elections Results 2017: Congress-BJP both secure 2 states each 11.3.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The BJP got a stunning victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand on Saturday, trampling a fragmented opposition that had hoped the demonetization exercise would have chipped away at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity. The BJP was also locked in a close contest in Goa and Manipur with the Congress, which won the consolation prize of Punjab where it will form the government. Modi's party was now set to return to power in Uttar Pradesh after a 14-year gap during which regional parties such as the SP and BSP had held sway. "The prime minister has clearly established himself as the predominant leader in India," said Aarti Jerath, a political analyst, on NDTV. BJP president Amit Shah, who crafted and conducted the election strategy in UP, credited Modi and his policies for the victory. "This is the victory of the corruption-free rule and pro-poor polices under the leadership of Modi," he tweeted. यह प्रधानमंत्री श्री @NarendraModi जी के नेतृत्व में भ्रष्टाचार विहीन शासन और गरीब कल्याणकारी नीतियों की जीत ...

Attempt to glorify assassin of Mahatma Gandhi unfortunate: Digvijay Singh 30.1.2016 DNA: Popular News
Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Saturday termed as "unfortunate" the alleged attempts to "glorify" Nathuram Godse when the world was following the path of non-violence shown by Mahatma Gandhi. "The whole world is following the path of non-violence shown by Mahatma Gandhi. But there is a section of people in the country who are trying to glorify his assassin, Nathuram Godse, which is unfortunate," he said at an event. "These people are trying to disturb the communal harmony, the foundation of which was laid by Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru," he said at an event organised by NGO Observer Peace Foundation. Singh's remarks came in the backdrop of the BJP-led Goa government's plan to release a book on Godse, which was earlier scheduled for today on the occasion of the death anniversary of the Father of the Nation but put off following protests by social organisations and political parties. Criticising the NDA government's ambitious scheme to develop 100 smart cities, he said "till there are no smart ...

Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar on Saturday said there have been attempts to disrupt the communal harmony in the state in the recent past.
