Statements made to pander to a local audience have damaged Indian interests in a part of the world that is crucial to the country: Omar Abdullah

Omar Abdullah – Vice President, JKNC:

  • When I was first starting out in politics I would occasionally hear colleagues make speeches in which they would say things that would be unpalatable to a wider audience in J&K. When asked how they get away with this they would reply “it’s LC”.

  • LC = for local consumption. It was a time before social media & before everyone in the audience had access to a video camera.

  • Media coverage of the function would depend upon what the party media office chose to include in the press release sent out that evening.

  • Of course the LC parts of the speech would never find any mention in any release & the wider population of J&K was none the wiser about some of the points made in the speeches.

  • Over the last few years my colleagues & I have learnt that there is no such thing as LC any longer.

  • What we say in one corner of some mountain top in J&K can make news in a distant part of South India in a matter of minutes.

  • It would seem that spokespersons of the ruling BJP need to learn that the era of LC is well & truly a thing of the past.

  • Statements made to pander to a local audience have damaged Indian interests in a part of the world that is crucial to the country

  • Indian diplomats will use up valuable diplomatic capital to assuage the anger that has, rightfully, been felt in countries that matter deeply to our country.

  • And all because the BJP thought it can be explain away hurtful statements as LC.

Akali Dal has teamed up with panthic organisations to seek election of Biba Kamaldeep Kaur Rajoana to Lok Sabha to send a strong message to parliament to release all Sikh prisoners: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

  • SAD has teamed up with panthic organisations to elect Biba Kamaldeep Kaur Rajoana to Lok Sabha to send a strong message to parliament to release all Bandi Singhs (Sikh prisoners) including Bhai Balwant S Rajoana who are in jail even after completion of their life sentences.

  • It is our bounden duty to relieve all Bandi Singhs including Bhai Balwant S Rajoana from the intense suffering they are undergoing. Bhai Rajoana has been incarcerated in 8×8 feet cell for 28 yrs without parole except once when he was allowed to attend his father’s cremation.

  • I appeal to Punjabis to shed all political differences to achieve freedom for Bandi Singhs. Earlier also Punjabis united in 1989 to elect S Simranjit S Mann to Lok Sabha in absentia which resulted in the latter’s unconditional release from jail. The same unity is needed today.

PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Iconic Week Celebrations of Ministry of Finance & Ministry of Corporate Affairs :

In last 8 yrs, India has taken new steps every day & tried to do new work. Increased public participation in the nation during this, sped up the development of the nation and empowered the poor.

Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav is not just a celebration of 75 years. It is a moment to celebrate, fulfill, generate new vigour into the dreams for an independent India seen by the leaders of India’s freedom and go ahead with new resolutions.

Reforms – That is, what we focused on. And along with reforms we have focussed on Simplification.

GST has now replaced the web of many taxes at the centre and the state. The country is also seeing the result of this simplification. Today when we move with the power of reform, simplification, and ease, we attain a new level of convenience.
