BJP in election mode! After the Chief Ministers, now the MLAs will be blamed, 50% of the MLAs will be cleared from the 2022 elections

After the change of chief ministers in Gujarat and Uttarakhand, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is now trying to remove at least half of the sitting MLAs to blunt the anti-incumbency wave in all the electoral states. Some office bearers of the party have given this information. In the last assembly elections, the party had removed 15-20 percent of the MLAs from the sitting MLAs. However, it is expected that this time this figure may be much higher.

A senior party functionary said that one of the reasons for this is also that there is dissatisfaction among the public regarding many issues of the party. Assembly elections are due in 2022 in Punjab, Manipur, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. A BJP worker said that the MLAs were also asked to submit a report card of the work done by them during the last five years. In which the performance of a large number of MLAs has not been good. The party has said that the MLAs whose performance is not good, they will be removed and will not be taken further.

The performance of the MLAs was assessed on the basis of several parameters, including- (1) How the funds given for the development of the local people were used? (2) What projects were brought to empower the marginalized people, how much benefit did the people get from them? (3) What was the contribution of MLAs in the Seva Hi Sangathan program? etc. are included. The survey was conducted in all the constituencies where people's feedback was sought on the performance of the government.

Fighting anti-incumbency is a big concern for BJP

The activist said that the Kovid-19 pandemic came with a big challenge, where the government made several efforts at every step by improving the health infrastructure, ensuring corona vaccination and increasing medical supplies. The party also did its bit by organizing relief operations. BJP President JP Nadda had asked every state unit to run a campaign to feed the needy, help those who lost their jobs and ensure 100% vaccination in their respective booths under the 'Seva Hi Sangathan Abhiyan'. ' The work done by the MLAs under the Seva Hi Sangathan campaign will also be counted in their performance.

Countering the anti-incumbency wave has been a major concern for the BJP. This is the reason why the central leadership decided to replace Vijay Rupani, the former Chief Minister of Gujarat. A new cabinet was also sworn in to reinvigorate the party cadre in the state, which will go to polls in late 2022.

If oil prices do not come down, the pace of economic recovery will decrease: Hardeep Singh Puri

If oil prices do not come down, the pace of economic recovery will decrease: Hardeep Singh Puri

 India on Wednesday warned the world that if oil prices continue to remain high, the recovery in the global economy may be affected. At the same time, it urged Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries to take steps to reduce prices and ensure supply. Let us tell you that the prices of petrol and diesel in the country have reached an all-time high. Addressing CeraWeek's India Energy Forum, Petroleum Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that if fuel prices do not come down, the pace of recovery in the world economy will slow down.

In April last year, during the Corona epidemic, the prices of crude oil in the international market came down to $ 19 per barrel due to the decrease in demand due to the lockdown imposed in most countries of the world. Although the demand for oil increased this year due to rapid vaccination happening all over the world, then crude oil climbed to $ 84 per barrel. Puri said that due to the cost of fuel, there is a possibility of rising inflation. He said the country's oil import bill was $8.8 billion in the June 2020 quarter, which has increased to $24 billion this year. The only reason this happens is because of the cost of oil.

The Petroleum Minister said that the government believes that the availability of fuel should not only be continuous but it should also be affordable. The economic recovery has weakened after the devastating pandemic and is further threatened by high oil prices. India imports about two-thirds of its oil requirement from countries in West Asia. Therefore, it has urged OPEC countries that higher oil prices will lead to a rapid move towards alternative fuels, and in such a situation, these high prices will prove to be harmful for the producers only. Puri said he had raised the issue in the recent meetings with Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, the US, Russia and Bahrain.

Petrol and diesel prices hiked again

Two days later, on Wednesday, once again the prices of petrol and diesel were increased by 35 paise per liter. Thus fuel prices have reached an all-time high across the country. After the increase in prices, the price of petrol has reached a record level of Rs 106.19 per liter in Delhi and Rs 112.11 per liter in Mumbai. Whereas in Mumbai, diesel is getting Rs 102.89 per liter. Whereas in the national capital it costs Rs 94.92 per liter. After the increase of 35 paise per liter in vehicle fuel for four consecutive days, their price was not increased on Monday and Tuesday.

After the increase in prices on Wednesday, the price of petrol in all state capitals has gone up to Rs 100 per liter or more. While diesel has touched the level of hundreds in more than a dozen states. In Goa's capital Panaji and Jharkhand's capital Ranchi also, diesel crossed the Rs 100 per liter mark. The costliest fuel is in the border town of Ganganagar in Rajasthan where petrol is available at Rs 118.23 per liter and diesel at Rs 109.04 per litre. For the first time in the international market, the price of crude oil reached $ 84.43 per barrel on Wednesday. It was priced at $73.92 a barrel a month ago.
