'Yogi outfit' gives call to make India Hindu Rashtra 18.6.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The Hindu Convention in Goa concluded with a resolution to convert India and Nepal into 'Hindu Rashtras' even as the Goa government warned the organisers of stern action if they try to propagate communal disharmony in the state. Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, issue of beef ban and ban on Pramod Muthalik in Goa dominated the final day of the convention. In a news conference organised here, leaders of the convention vociferously raised these issues. "Now we have our government in Uttar Pradesh and we have full faith in Yogiji to build the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya before 2019 Lok Sabha election," T Raja Singh, BJP MLA from Telangana, said. The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti demanded a Maharashtra-like law with regard to beef in Goa. "Goa should enact a law on the lines of Maharashtra. How can there be two sets of laws on same issue?" said Ramesh Shinde, National spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. Another leader from the convention raised the issue of ban on Ram Sene leader Pramod Muthalik in Goa and called it a ...

Presidential Elections 2017: Sena votes for ‘Hindutva rubber stamp’ at Rashtrapati Bhavan 9.6.2017 DNA: Top News
The Shiv Sena, which has consistently been pushing for RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat as the next president, today said a "Hindutva rubber stamp" should be installed at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Sena, the BJP's oldest ally, said the nation needs a person who can make India a 'Hindu Rashtra' and resolve issues like the "Ram mandir" and Article 370. "So far, rubber stamps with secular credentials resided at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Now, to resolve the issues of Ram Mandir, Uniform Civil Code and Article 370 of the Constitution, it is required that a Hindutva rubber stamp assumes the post of president," an editorial in the Sena mouthpiece Saamana said. The Sena has repeatedly said that its choice for the the highest office is the RSS chief. Bhagwat, 66, however, has said he is not interested in the president's post. With the presidential contest, if required, scheduled to be held on July 17, the BJP is hopeful of securing the support of the Sena's contingent of 18 MPs and 63 MLAs. The BJP's oldest pro-Hindutva ally has ...

Unfair to link BJP with cow vigilantism: Nitin Gadkari 23.5.2017 DNA: India
A veteran BJP leader and Union Minister of Roads and Highways, Nitin Gadkari speaks in an interview with Sanjay Jog on the three-year rule of the BJP-led government, the Opposition's allegations of indulging in communal politics and the upcoming Presidential election. Excerpts: As your government completes three years in office, the Opposition has blamed the BJP for communal politics and polarising the society. What is your take? Let me be very clear that the government is sincerely pursuing its 'sabka saath sabka vikas' motto. We are not indulging in communal politics, and neither do we discriminate against anybody on the grounds of caste, creed, religion or language. It is quite unfair to link the BJP with persons dressed in saffron and organisations responsible for some incidents of cow vigilantism and violence. There was no relationship between the two. Stern action will be taken against those taking the law into their own hands. There is a well-planned strategy to defame the BJP-led government at ...
