In a strongly worded retort to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “moorkhon ke sardar” (the leader of stupid people) jibe, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi said on Saturday that PM’s “abusive words” against him betray his exasperation. Accusing the Modi government of giving money to Gautam Adani-led Adani Group, Gandhi said his goal was to dole out as much money to the poor sections of the country. “Wherever PM Modi goes, he uses bad words against me, he abuses me, talks nonsense. I don’t care much about this. I have told you my goal already. He can call me any name, I don’t really care. My goal is — jitna paisa Narendra Modi Adani ko deta hai utna paisa me gareebo ko dunga (I will give as much money to the poor people of the country as Narendra Modi gives to Adani),” he said. Gandhi said the fact that Modi was using “abusive words” against him proved he had been doing something right. Dig Deeper
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to lieutenant governor (LG) VK Saxena recommending immediate removal of chief secretary Naresh Kumar in the alleged corruption case involving land pocket acquisition for Dwarka expressway, officials aware of the matter said on Wednesday. The chief minister has also recommended Delhi LG to send the report submitted by vigilance minister Atishi in connection with the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for further investigation, the officials added. No immediate reaction was available from Kumar or the LG secretariat regarding Kejriwal’s letter. On Tuesday, Kumar denied the charges and said he welcomed an investigation. “Let CBI/ED also investigate such conspiracy being done by vested interests, including public authorities, to malign me, against whom action has been taken by me, including removal from services/posts, suspension, referring cases to ED, CBI and Delhi Police with approval of the competent authorities for investigation,” he said in a statement.
