Bigg boss: Rahul’s shockingly abusive words on season 1 female contestant 


Rahul, who entered Bigg boss season 3 as underdog contestant, became very popular and now one of the main contenders for the coveted title. While just one more week to go for the grand finale, one of his old videos surfaced on social media and it went viral because of the shocking content it has. Rahul was seen using extremely foul language in that video that he did during Bigg boss season 1. Details as below

During Bigg boss season 1, Deeksha Panth was asked to perform for “Mangamma’ song that was done by Rahul Sipligunj. At that time, she felt the song was not classy and told it looks like a ‘low-class mass song’. Rahul, who composed this song made a video to lambast Deeksha Panth and other contestants of Bigg boss season 1. He told, Deeksha should feel lucky to perform his song. He demeaned the contestants saying they don’t have the talent to create such an artistic work. He used foul language throughout the video and called the contestants ‘salegallu’,  He used ‘f’ word, ‘a’ word and some other such abusive words on the contestants.

This old video of Rahul surfacing now in social media surprised many. While Rahul supporters defend him, others were shocked at his language on female contestants and say the guy who doesn’t give minimum respect to women doesn’t deserve the title. We have to wait and see whether he will emerge the winner or not.

Congress, TDP and allies to meet President Kovind


National leaders of over 14 anti-BJP parties led by Congress met in the Parliament Annexe Hall and decided to meet President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday. UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, AICC President Rahul Gandhi, former PMs Manmohan Singh and Deve Gowda, West Bengal CM Mamata Bennerjee, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu, NCP President Sharad Pawar, Left leaders Sitaram Yechuri and Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy were present in the meeting.

The meeting was planned by Naidu to prove it as a show of strength and unity among the anti-BJP parties. Moreover, the counting for elections is to be held tomorrow. Speaking to the media, Rahul and Naidu said their parties would unitedly counter the BJP and work to oust the Modi government.

They said they would unitedly wage a struggle against the corruption, demonetisation and Rafale scam of the BJP government in the coming days. They asserted the Modi government has crippled democratic and national institutions like the CBI, the RBI and so on for settling its political scores.

The game plan of these parties is to preempt any move on the part of BJP to take advantage of hung assemblies in any of the five states. It is a rare political situation in Telangana if the state sees TRS emerging as single largest but People’s Front has majority.

KCR scared of Modi because of corruption: Rahul


Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao was scared of Prime Minister Narendra Modi because of his corruption.

Addressing a series of election rallies in Telangana, he also claimed that Modi was running the Telangana government through remote control.

“As Modi has CBI and Enforcement Directorate at his disposal, KCR is afraid of him,” Gandhi told a road show in Hyderabad while campaigning with Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.

Alleging that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief KCR received kickbacks in irrigation projects, the Congress leader said it was because of this corruption that he was not able to stand up to Modi and supported the BJP on every bill and in the election of President and Vice President.

Gandhi said KCR owed an explanation to the people of Telangana as to why he backed Modi on demonetization and GST when both the measures caused misery to the people.

“Wherever Modi speaks, he criticizes me, ridicules me and my family but he speaks nothing against KCR. This shows they are hand in glove,” he said.

Gandhi, who also addressed rallies in Tandur and Gadwal earlier, said the Congress-led People’s Front will break the KCR-Modi partnership in Telangana Assembly elections.

He described the TRS and Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) as Modi’s “B” and “C” teams. “We will defeat B and C teams in this election. Next year we will defeat A team.”

Gandhi said when Telangana state was formed, people had dreamt of ‘golden Telangana’ but only the family of KCR has turned ‘golden’.

Stating that when Telangana was formed it had Rs 17,000 crore surplus budget but in five years KCR increased it to Rs 2.5 lakh crore. “Every family has a debt burden of Rs 2.5 lakh but the income of the Chief Minister’s son has gone up by 400 percent.”

Kamal Haasan meets Rahul, discusses politics in TN


Actor Kamal Haasan, who has floated a new political party Makkal Needhi Maiam, on Wednesday met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and discussed the political situation in Tamil Nadu.

“Enjoyed meeting Kamal Haasan in Delhi today. We discussed a wide range of issues concerning our two parties, including the political situation in Tamil Nadu,” Gandhi said in a tweet later.

Haasan responded through a tweet and thanked Gandhi for his inputs. “Thank you Rahul Gandhiji for the time and inputs. Hope our conversation was useful to you as well,” he said.

The meeting that lasted nearly an hour took place at Gandhi’s residence.

“We did discuss politics but not the way you think,” Haasan told reporters after the meeting which he initially described as a courtesy call.

To a question whether an alliance between his party and the Congress in Tamil Nadu was discussed, he said: “We did not discuss that.”

Earlier in the day, Haasan met Election Commission officials and expressed confidence that the process of registration of his political party will be done in around a week’s time.

Kumaraswamy meets Sonia, Rahul, discusses government formation


JD-S leader and Karnataka Chief Minister-designate H.D. Kumaraswamy on Monday met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi to discuss ministerial berth sharing between the coalition partners ahead of his swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday.

The details of the meeting were not divulged but the sources said the Congress demanded two posts for Deputy Chief Ministers — one for a Dalit and the other for a Lingayat, 12 for ministers and one for the Speaker. However, Kumaraswamy said the matter will be finalised when the two sides sit together on Tuesday in Bengaluru.

The Congress has authorised its General Secretary incharge of Karnataka K.C. Venugopal to discuss the matter with local Congress leadership, including former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. He will also discuss the issue with the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) leadership.

“Rahulji cleared the modalities to be done. He has given permission to Venugopal to discuss all those matters and finalise everything. He will sit together to finalise things,” Kumaraswamy told reporters after meeting the Gandhis.

He also invited both the Congress leaders to his oath-taking ceremony in Bengaluru on Wednesday. “Both agreed to come,” he said.

Kumaraswamy earlier met Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati here and discussed plans of putting in place a Congress and JD-S coalition government. The JD-S contested the Karnataka election in a pre-poll alliance with the BSP and later had a post-poll tie-up with the Congress.

JD-S General Secretary and Spokesperson Danish Ali said Kumaraswamy and Congress leaders discussed “long term relationship on mutual trust” of the newly-formed coalition and vowed to give a joint contest to the BJP in Karnataka in 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Ali told NDTV: “This is what we have decided. We will fight together.”

Asked about Congress’s demand of two Deputy Chief Ministers, he said: “Who will be their Deputy CM its up to them (Congress).”

Before Kumaraswamy meet the Gandhis, senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ashok Gehlot met Rahul Gandhi and are learnt to have discussed issues related to government formation in Karnataka.

Besides Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati and Chief Ministers Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi), Pinarayi Vijayan (Kerala), Mamata Banerjee (West Bengal), Chandrababu Naidu (Andhra Pradesh) and K. Chandrashekar Rao (Telangana) are expected to attend the oath-taking ceremony.

Meanwhile, BJP President Amit Shah launched a scathing attack on both the parties and described the alliance as “unholy” while defending his party’s decision to form the government.

“We were invited to form the government. There was nothing unethical,” Shah told reporters here.

“The BJP emerged as the single-largest party in Karnataka. The mandate was in favour of the BJP. The Congress and the JD-S formed an alliance against the people’s mandate. This is what I call an unholy alliance.”

He said if the Congress and the JD-S had not “locked” their MLAs in five-star hotels and allowed them to interact with people, the JD-S would have supported the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in government formation.

Shah said the BJP was invited to form the governments in Goa and Manipur earlier because the Congress did not stake claim despite emerging as the single-largest party as their leaders were “resting and sleeping”.

The BJP chief said as the single-largest party, it was the BJP’s right to stake claim. Responding to charges of attempts at horse trading by the BJP, Shah hit back, saying it was the Congress which sold its stable to form the state government.

Hitting out at the Congress for “preaching on democracy”, Shah reminded how it formed the government in Goa in 1980 despite failing to win a single seat in the Assembly elections.

Rahul, Akhilesh to Attend Public Rally in Guntur on Sunday

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, ex-Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and a host of other leaders will attend a public meeting at Guntur on Sunday to “expose” the TDP and the BJP.

National leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav, JDU leader Sharad Yadav, CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, secretary D Raja and others from parties like Trinamool Congress will attend the public meeting, said PCC president N Raghuveera Reddy.

“The TDP and the BJP have taken a complete U-turn after promising SCS for not less than ten years. We want to expose that and also build confidence among people that we are with them on the SCS issue,” said Reddy.

Being organised by the AP Congress Committee, the ‘Pratyeka Hoda Bharosa Sabha’ (confidence-building meeting on special category status) is seen as the party’s desperate effort to rise from the ashes in the state, where it was literally buried in the 2014 elections by the electorate, seething over the bifurcation.

It will be Rahul’s second visit to AP since 2014, after his rather ineffective trip to Anantapuramu district in 2015 for a farmers’ rally.

“(AP CM) Chandrababu Naidu surrendered the state’s interests to the Centre only to save himself from the criminal cases against him. Hence, he is cheating the people on SCS by claiming that the special economic package is much better,” alleged PCC secretary and former minister S Sailajanath.

“Leaders of various national parties will pledge support to AP’s cause, at the public meeting in Guntur tomorrow,” Sailajanath added.

Jagan to join Rahul to defeat Land Bill



YS Jaganmohan Reddy led YSR Congress will join hands with  Congress party in opposing and defeating  the Land Acquisition Bill in parliament.

The Parliament monsoon session is commencing from July 21, and it is going to be crucial one for both BJP and Telugu Desam party. The YSRC parliamentary board has asked its members to vote against the Land bill in Parliament. This brings YSRC closer to the Congress which is campaigning for the defeat of the Land Bill-2015.

This is for the first time, Congress and YSR Congress, which TDP president Chandrababu Naidu used to call “mother Congress and child Congress”, coming closer.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has given a call to all opposition parties in  parliament to defeat the bill which is going to amend the existing land acquisition act brought about by UPA government.  All non-NDA parties are opposing the bill and are expected to join hands to defeat the bill. It is really testing time for Modi  led NDA government, whose numbers fall short of majority in Rajya Sabha.

Even though the Bill will have no problem in getting the nod of Lok Sabha, it is certain to pave the way for unity of opposition parties. On record, the YSR Congress has nine members in Lok Sabha, one is from Telangana and eight from Andhra Pradesh. Of the eight, MPs  SPY Reddy and Kothapalli Gita have switched sides and they may vote in favor of bill.

“We strongly oppose the Land Acquisition Bill which allows the acquisition of multi crop lands without incorporating the necessary buffers like social impact assessment and consent of the farmers,” Party MP and floor leader in Lok Sabha Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy told reporters after the Parliamentary Party meeting held under the chairmanship of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. YSRCPP met  to discuss the strategy to be adopted in the monsoon session beginning July 21. Many issues such as special status to Andhra Pradesh, high level probe into cash-for-vote scam, expediting the construction of Polavaram project, implementation of other provisions in the AP reorganization Act will ensure that YSRC and Congress are in the page during the session.
