Nitish asks PM Modi for time to discuss caste census demand

Published

Patna, Aug 6. In a bid to corner the BJP, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reiterating the demand for a caste-based census in the state.

While interacting with reporters on Thursday, he said that he has sent a letter to the PM, urging him to give time so that members of all parties of Bihar can meet him and share their views on the issue.

Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav had, during the Monsoon session, met Nitish Kumar, and requested him to fix an appointment with Modi for the purpose.

Sources say that the friction between ruling allies, the Janata Dal-United and the Bharatiya Janata Party has intensified in the last few weeks, especially after the recent cabinet expansion of the Modi government. Both JD-U and BJP leaders are taking potshots at each other to take the upper hand in Bihar.

Recently, JD-U parliamentary board President Upendra Kushwaha declared Nitish Kumar as PM material, drawing a retort from BJP minister Samrat Chaudhary, who said that there is no vacancy of the Prime Minister’s post in the NDA.

He further said that running a four-party coalition government in Bihar is extremely difficult as all the parties have different ideologies.

Even Nitish Kumar responded to his minister’s statement, saying that he saw no problem in running a coalition government, and if Chaudhary has any problem, he should talk to his party’s leaders.

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.
