New Delhi, Sep 23: Ahead of next year’s municipal polls in the national capital, the BJP has decided to take strict action against its councillors if found guilty of graft charges and indiscipline.

It is learnt that after expelling three municipal councillors from the party, the BJP is all set to expel more in the coming days.

Sources said that the BJP central leadership has directed the Delhi unit to take action against municipal councillors who are found guilty of financial irregularities and leaders who are not toeing the party line.

On September 19, the BJP Delhi unit had expelled three councillors — Rajni Babloo Pandey (New Ashok Nagar), Puja Madan (Mukherjee Nagar) and Sanjay Thakur (Said-ul-Ajaib) from the party for six years for their alleged involvement in financial irregularities. Hours later the same day after her expulsion, Puja Madan joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

A senior BJP functionary said that there were complaints of financial irregularities against some councillors and after internal enquiry some of the allegations were found true.

“There are three to four councillors against whom allegations are found to be true and they will be thrown out of the party in the coming days. We have clear instructions from the Central leadership to not tolerate cases of corruption or financial irregularities,” he said.

BJP Delhi chief Adesh Gupta had told IANS that there will be zero tolerance against corruption and more councillors will face the music for their involvement in corrupt practice.

“In coming weeks, strict action will be taken against more councillors and municipal officials,” Gupta had said.

Another saffron party leader pointed that direction has come from the top, clearly stating that the message should be strong and loud that there is no place for corruption in the BJP.

It is learnt that while taking note of reports of indiscipline, the central leadership has also directed the state unit to take strict action. “No one is bigger than the party and everyone has to follow the party line. Those not following will be shown the door,” a senior party leader said.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
