For Start Up India You Needn’t Shut Up India, Says #RahulGandhi

New Delhi, Oct 26: Continuing his tirade against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led ND  government and Prime Minister Narendra ModiCongress Vice-President Rahul Gandhitoday said that the present regime is not ready to listen and resolve issues of aam aadmi.  The Congress leader said that hopes of people of the country have been shattered after three years of Modi rule and described the rising unemployment in the country as “MMD – Modi Made Disaster.”

Speaking at PHD chambers, Rahul Gandhi said that trust in the present government is non-existent.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government is convinced that every single person is a thief. One develops trust by listening to each other. Today there is no one in government ready to listen to the pain of our people,” he said.

“Startup India is welcome for the economy, but it cannot be accompanied by ‘Shut Up India’ in society. What gives Startup India its strength is freedom of expression, thought and dissent. You choke this and you choke entrepreneurship,” he added.

 On Taj Controversy

Commenting on the ongoing controversy surrounding Taj Mahal, Rahul Gandhi, who is said to be elevated to Congress President’s post soon, said the issue has made India a laughing stock.

On Demonetisation, GST

Targeting the Modi government over country’s economy,  Rahul Gandhi said that steps like demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) crippled India’s economy and destroyed thousands of small businesses.

While addressing a press conference here today, the Central Vigilance Commissioner, Shri K.V. Chowdary said that the purpose of observing Vigilance Awareness Week is to educate the public at large about the corruption related practices and also educating them how to report about it.  He said that it acts like a mass movement of involving people in saying no to corruption. Shri Chowdary said that to give recognition to the reforms and good work done by organization in the field of punitive, preventive and participative vigilance, the Vigilance Excellence Awards have been instituted in two categories from this year onwards. He also said that the Commission is developing an Integrity Index based on bench marking of internal processes and controls within an organization as well as management of relationships and expectations of external stake holders. He further said that initially Integrity Index will be developed for 25 organisations including Government organisations and PSUs. This Integrity Index will be developed with technical support form IIM, Ahmedabad, he added. He also informed that the CVC is developing an e-learning module for the benefit of vigilance officers.

The Vigilance Commissioners Dr. T M Basin and Shri Rajiv, Secretary, CVC Smt Nilam Sawhney and senior officers were also present on the occasion.
Observance of Vigilance Awareness Week every year is part of a multi-pronged approach of the Commission wherein one of the strategies is to encourage all stakeholders to collectively participate in the prevention of and the fight against corruption and to raise public awareness regarding the existence, causes and gravity of and the threat posed by corruption. The Commission as part of a multi-pronged strategy to tackle corruption has been stressing on punitive, preventive and participative vigilance measures. Organisations have been advised to conduct activities relevant to the theme both within their organization, and outreach activities for public/citizens as given below:
        Activities to be conducted within the organisation include taking of Integrity Pledge by all employees, distribution of pamphlets/handouts on preventive vigilance activities, whistle blower mechanism and other anti-corruption measures, conducting workshops and sensitization programmes for employees and other stake holders on policies/procedures of the organization and preventive vigilance measures. Other activities include publication of  journals/newsletters on vigilance issues, systemic improvements and good practices adopted for wider dissemination and awareness, conducting various competitions such as debates, quiz etc. for the employees and their families on issues relating to anti-corruption and the use of organizational websites for dissemination of employees/customer oriented information.
Outreach activities for public/citizens include the display of hoardings, banners, posters and distribution of handouts etc. at prominent locations/places in offices/field units and also at places with public interface, organization of grievance redressal camps for citizens/customers by organisations having customer oriented services/activities and the taking of the online “Integrity Pledge” developed by the Commission.

Laying stress for creation of awareness on the ill-effects of corruption amongst school and college students, special efforts are being made by each field unit/branch of every CPSE/ to reach out to students in schools and colleges. In this regard, various activities such as lectures, panel discussions, debates, quiz, essay writing, slogans/elocution/cartoon/poster competitions on moral values, ethics, good governance practices etc. are being organized across the country. In 2016, such activities were organized in schools and colleges in more than 500 towns across the country

छठ पूजा को लेकर कई तरह की मान्यताएं हैं उन्हीं में से एक है इस पूजा के दौरान डूबते हुए सूर्य को शाम के वक्त अर्घ्य देना. जो उगते सूरज से भी काफी फायदेमंद होता है. पौराणिक मान्यताओं के अनुसार कहा जाता है कि शाम के वक्त सूर्य को अर्घ्य इसलिए फायदेमंद होता है क्योंकि इस समय सूर्य की पत्नी उनके साथ होती है जिससे व्रत रखने वाली महिलाओं को इसका दोहरा लाभ होता है.

राहुल गांधी से पूछा कब करोगे शादी, मिला ये जवाब!

नई दिल्ली। गुजरात चुनाव की सरगर्मियों के बीच एकबार फिर राहुल गांधी की शादी का सवाल उठा है. कांग्रेस उपाध्यक्ष से जब पूछा गया कि शादी कब करोगे तो उन्होंने कहा कि जब होना होगा हो जाएगी. ये तो किस्मत की बात है और मैं किस्मत पर भरोसा करता हूं. गुरुवार को राहुल गांधी पीएचडी एनुअल अवॉर्ड फॉर एक्सीलेंस 2017 में आयोजित कार्यक्रम में बोल रहे थे. 47 वर्षीय राहुल गांधी को मोस्ट एलिजिबल बैचलर माना जाता है.

इस कार्यक्रम में राहुल गांधी ने बीजेपी को निशाने पर लिया. उन्होंने कहा कि भारतीय जनता पार्टी से लोगों का भरोसा उठ गया है. वर्तमान हालात ये है कि सरकार में ऐसा कोई व्यक्ति नहीं है जो जनता के दर्द को सुन सके. राहुल ने कहा कि सरकार और जनता के बीच सबसे जरूरी कोई चीज है तो वो है विश्वास और सरकार ने जनता का विश्वास खो दिया है. सरकार हर नागरिक को चोर बताने पर तुली है.

कांग्रेस उपाध्यक्ष ने कहा कि सारा नकद कालाधन नहीं है और सारा कालाधन नकद में नहीं है. व्यवसाय डूब रहे हैं और वित्तमंत्री जेटली रोजाना टीवी पर बोल रहे हैं कि सबकुछ ठीक है. उन्होंने कहा कि देश की अर्थव्यवस्था बद से बदतर होती जा रही है. राहुल ने कहा कि जब नौकरियां जा रही हैं, जीडीपी गिर रही है तो फिर सब ठीक क्या चल रहा है.

जीएसटी और नोटबंदी को लेकर उन्होंने इस बार वित्त मंत्री अरुण जेटली को निशाने पर लिया है. जेटली को ‘डॉक्टर’ बताते हुए कांग्रेस उपाध्यक्ष ने कहा है कि अर्थवस्था आईसीयू में है, लेकिन उनकी दवा में दम नहीं है. राहुल ने इसके पहले जीएसटी को ‘गब्बर सिंह टैक्स’ बताया था जिसका जेटली ने जवाब भी दिया था.
