Haryana: Former Congress president Ashok Tanwar will form new party, will announce on 25 February

Former state party president Ashok Tanwar, who left Congress after differences with former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, is set to start a new party on February 25. The party will be set up at the Constitution Club of Delhi on Thursday with online launching at 25 locations. The main event will be held in Delhi, Chandigarh, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

On contacting Ashok Tanwar, he did not mention the name of the party and asked to wait till 25 February. Tanwar, who was the Haryana state president of the Congress for more than five years, left the party after his supporters were denied tickets in the 2019 assembly elections. A close aide of Tanwar said that the new party would not be Haryana-centric, but a national party and it would focus on the Dalits and the 36 fraternity of Haryana.

Tanwar will not be the first former Congressman to start his own party. Earlier, Bhajanlal had set up his own party named Haryana Janhit Congress in 2004 after not getting the chief minister's post. However, it was later merged with the Congress. Earlier, former Haryana Congress Chief Minister Bansi Lal started the Haryana Vikas Party, but later he returned to the Congress in 2004 and merged his party with it.

Ashok Tanwar, once close to former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, is following the path of young leaders like Jagan Mohan Reddy, who left the Congress and formed the YSRCP, which is now the ruling party in Andhra Pradesh. The Congress is the main opposition party in Haryana, while the BJP is ruling in the state in alliance with the JJP. Tanwar is looking for a place between Congress and BJP and he is going to target the Dalit votes in the state.

After the farmers' agitation against three new agricultural laws, Tanwar is eyeing the segment which is against both BJP and Congress. A close aide of Tanwar said that it is hoped that he will also try to woo those leaders in Congress who are unhappy with Bhupendra Singh Hooda and feel isolated in the party.

Kerala became its own country of fundamentalists, Nirmala Sitharaman targeted the CPI-M government

Kerala became its own country of fundamentalists, Nirmala Sitharaman targeted the CPI-M government

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday targeted the CPI (M) -led government of Kerala. He alleged that during its five-year reign, the state has become "its own country of fundamentalists", which is known as "God's own country". The minister also targeted Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for his budget and questioned the role of Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board in budget making.

He criticized the alleged killing of an RSS worker in Alappuzha by SDPI activists last week. He alleged that violence is increasing in the Left ruled state. The Union Minister said, "I cry when I have to say that RSS pracharak Nandu Krishna was killed. Is this God's own country here? "

'Abuse of fundamentalists will not be questioned'

Sitharaman said these things while inaugurating a meeting organized by Kerala BJP President K Surendran on "Vijay Yatra". He alleged that the mistreatment of fundamentalists in Kerala will not be questioned as the CPI-M has an alliance with the SDPI through the back door.

'Why is Rahul avoiding going to those places'

At the same time, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan targeted Rahul Gandhi on Saturday. He questioned the Congress' silence in states like Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Puducherry and the Union Territory when they came to power. Vijayan also wanted to know why Rahul is not going to those states where the Congress is directly facing the BJP.

Vijayan questioned, "Rahul Gandhi is a prominent leader of the Congress Party. Is he going to the state where the Congress is directly competing with the BJP? What role did he play in Goa, Manipur, Bihar, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and more recently in Puducherry? Why is he silent about these states? Why is Congress national leader Rahul Gandhi refraining from going to places where his party is in direct competition with the BJP?
