Congress MLA Roshan Baig hopes Opposition learns lessons from debacle

[India], May 24 (ANI): Congress's miffed lawmaker Roshan Baig on Friday congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his resounding victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls and hoped that the Opposition parties learn lessons from their debacles.

"Hearty congratulations to PM @narendramodi for getting such a massive mandate. The people have spoken, I hope PM Modi works towards bringing inclusive growth to the country. I hope all the opposition parties learn from this loss and introspect without making excuses," Baig wrote on his Twitter handle.

Baig, who is apparently at loggerheads with the Congress party after not getting a ticket to contest the just-concluded Lok Sabha polls, came into limelight after he levelled a series of strong allegations against the party leadership. He called Congress general secretary KC Venugopal a "buffoon", the party's state unit president Dinesh Gundu Rao "a flop show" and blamed Congress Legislature Party Leader (CLP) Siddaramaiah for the "collapse" of the Congress-JD(U) alliance in the state.

For his anti-party attitude, the Congress served him a showcause notice seeking an explanation from him within a week, to which the Congress MLA responded by saying he will not even bother reading the notice as it has "clearly been sent on the orders of the same people whose incompetencies were highlighted" by him.

Speaking to ANI on May 21, Baig had reiterated that he is upset with the fact that no seats were given to Christians and only one seat was given to Muslims in Karnataka.

"No seats were given to Christians and only one seat was given to Muslims in Karnataka, they were ignored. I'm upset with this, we have been used," he had said.

When he was asked whether Congress should have given more thought before assigning minister portfolios in Karnataka, Baig said, "Portfolios were sold. How can I blame Kumaraswamy for it? He wasn't allowed to function. From day one Siddaramaiah said he is going to be the chief minister. You have gone to their doorstep to form the government."

Responding to this, Congress leaders Gundu Rao and Rizwan Arshad had slammed Baig and later even called him an "opportunist" and asked him to resign from the party.

"He is an opportunist. If he has guts let him resign and contest from the BJP. If Congress is such a bad party which gave him power for the last 10 years and made him MLA for the last four terms let him resign and contest from BJP. Let's see what happens in Shivajinagara," Rizwan Arshad had said.

In Karnataka, BJP has won 25 seats while 1 seat each was bagged by Congress, JD(S) and an independent candidate.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, BJP had won 17 seats in the state while Congress and JD(S) were restricted to nine and 2 seats respectively. (ANI)

Udaipur : Men in Khakis have hearts of gold! The entire staff of Chitri police station in Dungarpur district proved it by contributing money from their pockets  and arranged the wedding ceremony of an orphan tribal girl Sushila Damor in Nainvasa village on Friday. None other than the SHO Ajay Singh Rao and his wife assumed the role of the bride parents and performed the kanyadaan rituals. The entire thana staff attended the wedding and blessed the couple. 

Chatura and Pemli Damor, Sushila’s parents had eight daughters in all. Three of them had been married when Chatura passed away of some prolonged illness five years ago. Their mother did odd jobs to support the family, but unfortunately she too died two years back, leaving her five daughters to fend for their own. Their paternal uncle Bachulal took care of his nieces and sent two younger ones to school while the three grown up girls worked in field and did other menial jobs to support their uncle. 

“Some villagers who had come to the police station happened to casually mention about the plight of these girls and said that Bachulal had found a groom for Sushila but he was unable to bear the wedding expenses,  this moved our hearts and we decided to raise money for a noble cause. Every staff member contributed of his and her free will as per their capacity and we had enough to arrange a decent wedding and gift household items to the couple to start their new life” the SHO told Udaipur Kiran. 

The cops brought wedding dress for the bride,  essential utensils and household items while the SHO gifted a  pair of silver anklet weighing around 10 tolas to the bride as per the Kanyadaan rituals. The arrangement for the wedding feast was also taken care by the cops. ” We sisters were really sad after demise of our parents and thought that if only we had a brother, he would have been our support. But God has been so kind, he sent not one but many angels to help us” the bride said. The event was a much discussed affair not only in the village but the surrounding areas and among the police department too.
