Modi congratulates BJP’s 1st RS member from Puducherry

Puducherry, Sep 28: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday congratulated BJP leader S. Selvaganabathy on his election to the Rajya Sabha from the union territory.

Modi in his tweet said, “It is a matter of immense pride for every BJP Karyakarta that our party has got its first-ever Rajya Sabha MP from Puducherry in S. Selvaganabathy.”

He said, “The trust placed in us by the people of Puducherry is humbling. We will keep working for Puducherry’s progress.”

BJP leader Selvaganabathy was elected unopposed from the lone Rajya Sabha seat in Puducherry after the deadline for withdrawal of nomination ended at 3 p.m. on Monday.

The opposition had not submitted a nomination for the seat while the election returning officer rejected the applications of five other independent candidates as they did not have the number of proposers required.

It was after several rounds of negotiations between the NDA alliance partners — BJP and AINRC — that the name of S. Selvaganabathy was finalized. Chief Minister N. Rangasamy of the AINRC had objected to the BJP getting the RS seat.

He expressed his displeasure over the BJP nominating three party leaders under the nominated quota of legislators without consulting the Chief Minister and he had proposed the name of Malladi Krishna Rao, who was instrumental in several former Congress leaders jumping fence and joining AINRC and BJP, before the 2021 Assembly elections.

Selvaganabathy is associated with the RSS for long and was one of the three nominated legislators of the BJP in the previous 14th Puducherry Assembly.

BJP President J.P. Nadda also congratulated Selvaganabathy on his selection as the first BJP leader to represent the UT of Puducherry in Rajya Sabha.

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

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.
