उम्मीदवारों के आपराधिक ब्यौरे सियासी दलों की वेबसाइट पर हों:सुप्रीम कोर्ट

(नई दिल्ली)उम्मीदवारों के आपराधिक ब्यौरे सियासी दलों की वेबसाइट पर हों:सुप्रीम कोर्ट
उच्चतम न्यायालय ने बृहस्पतिवार को सभी सियासी दलों को निर्देश दिया कि वे चुनाव लड़ रहे अपने उम्मीदवारों के खिलाफ लंबित आपराधिक मामलों का ब्यौरा अपनी वेबसाइट पर अपलोड करें ।
अब बताना होगा कि पार्टी ने ऐसे उम्मीदवार को ही क्यों चुनें जिनके खिलाफ आपराधिक मामले लंबित हैं।
न्यायालय ने एक अवमानना याचिका पर यह आदेश पारित किया। उस याचिका में राजनीति के अपराधीकरण का मुद्दा उठाते हुए दावा किया गया था कि सितंबर 2018 में आए शीर्ष अदालत के निर्देश का पालन नहीं किया जा रहा है जिसमें सियासी दलों से अपने उम्मीदवारों के आपराधिक रिकॉर्ड का खुलासा करने को कहा गया था।
न्यायमूर्ति रोहिन्टन फली नरीमन की अध्यक्षता वाली पीठ ने कहा कि सियासी दल उम्मीदवारों के खिलाफ लंबित आपराधिक मामलों की विस्तृत जानकारी फेसबुक और ट्विटर जैसे सोशल मीडिया प्लेटफॉर्म, क्षेत्रीय भाषा के एक अखबार और एक राष्ट्रीय अखबार में प्रकाशित करवाएं।
न्यायालय ने कहा कि सियासी दलों को ऐसे उम्मीदवार को चुनने के 72 घंटे के भीतर चुनाव आयोग को अनुपालन रिपोर्ट देनी होगी जिसके खिलाफ आपराधिक मामले लंबित हैं। साथ ही न्यायालय ने यह भी कहा कि जिन उम्मीदवारों के खिलाफ आपराधिक मामले लंबित हैं उनके बारे में अगर राजनीतिक दल न्यायालय की व्यवस्था का पालन करने में असफल रहते हैं तो चुनाव आयोग इसे शीर्ष अदालत के संज्ञान में लाए।
उच्चतम न्यायालय ने कहा कि प्रतीत होता है कि बीते चार आम चुनाव से राजनीति में अपराधीकरण तेजी से बढ़ा है।

Ajnalas Shifted Their Political Loyalty From Taksali To Akali (SAD)

(Amritsar,ChdPbI) Ajnalas Shifted Their Political Loyalty From Taksali To Akali (SAD)
In a setback for Akali breakaway Shiromani Akali Dal (Taksali), its leader Rattan Singh Ajnala and his son Amarpal Singh Bony rejoined the SAD on Thursday.
Former MP Ajnala, who was SAD (Taksali) senior vice president, and two-time former MLA Bony returned to the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) after a meeting with its chief Sukhbir Singh Badal at their residence in Amritsar district.
Badal told reporters that he was happy that the Ajnala family had returned to the SAD.
Later, Bony attended a SAD rally led by Badal at Rajasansi in the district. Bony had won two assembly elections as a SAD candidate.
Ajnala and Bony along with veteran leaders Ranjit Singh Brahmpura and Sewa Singh Sekhwan were expelled from the SAD for “anti-party” activities in November 2018.
They later floated the SAD (Taksali) to take on Badal who they had accused of “deviating” from the ‘panthic’ agenda and causing “irreparable” damage to the SAD.
Addressing the rally, Bony alleged that the dissidents Akalis could never come together.
“They (the dissident Akalis) can never come together be it Taksalis, (Sukhdev Singh) Dhindsa Sahib and Ravi Inder Singh (SAD 1920). There are so many shops (in that group),” he alleged.
“Several conspiracies are going on there and some ‘nakabposh’ (people wearing masks) were trying to go with the Congress and even were approaching Rahul Gandhi for that, Bony alleged, saying that the “mother party will always remain the mother”.
Referring to a December 14 event by rebel SAD leaders in Amritsar, Bony said he felt “hurt” over the felicitation of former Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president Paramjit Singh Sarna, who, he said, was a Congressman.
The event was held on the foundation day of the SAD.
Ajnala’s and Bony’s rejoining the SAD comes at a time when expelled leaders Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, his son Paramjit Singh Dhindsa along with SAD (Taksali) leaders are trying to stitch up a front against Sukhbir Badal to “liberate” the SAD from the Badal family and “revive its lost glory”.
The Dhindsas had rebelled against the SAD leadership, especially its chief, and had also questioned the leadership over the “lack of democracy” within the party.

Microsoft Top Brass Satya Nadella Visiting India:Clash With Trump

(New Delhi) Microsoft Corp Top Brass Satya Nadella Visiting India
Microsoft Corp Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Satya Nadella will visit India later this month
While the company confirmed the visit of the top executive, it did not give details about the dates and cities he is likely to visit.
According to sources, Nadella will be on a visit to India from February 24-26.
The visit comes on the heels of the Indian-origin CEO recently voicing concerns over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) – Nadella had last month said what is happening is “sad” and he would love to see a Bangladeshi immigrant create the next unicorn in India. His remarks had raised a furore in the political circles.
In a statement issued by Microsoft on January 14, Nadella had said: “Every country will and should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy accordingly. And in democracies, that is something that the people and their governments will debate and define within those bounds.”
India is a major market for Microsoft – the tech titan has a significant presence in cities like Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
It is pertinent to mention here that US President Donald Trump is scheduled to visit India on February 24 and 25.
Nadella’s visit comes at a time when the Indian government is taking a strong position on issues like data localisation and tightening the rules for e-commerce companies as well as social media platforms. India has so far resolutely stood its ground on these issues, refusing to bow to the pressure from US companies.
The Personal Data Protection Bill – which outlines norms for handling of personal data including processing by public and private entities – was introduced in the Lok Sabha in December 2019 and has been referred to a Joint Parliamentary Committee.
The proposed legislation mandates processing of ‘critical’ personal data only in India. What constitutes critical data is to be notified by the Centre, it says.
It has also proposed that sensitive personal data – like financial data, health data, sexual orientation, biometric or genetic data, transgender status, religious or political belief/affiliation – can be transferred outside India with explicit consent, but will continue to be stored in India.
Prominent bodies like The US-India Business Council (USIBC) and internet and mobile players’ association IAMAI have flagged concerns on some of the provisions in the Bill, saying that these will impinge on privacy of Indian citizens and create challenges for businesses.
The USIBC has said the Bill contains several new provisions outside the core issue of data privacy that raises serious concerns for the private sector, particularly the inclusion of requirements around non-personal data and social media intermediary liabilities.

भजपाई रघुराज ने अब नया विवाद खड़ा करते हुए बुर्के पर प्रतिबंध की मांग उठाई

(अलीगढ़ उप्र)भजपाई रघुराज सिंह ने अब नया विवाद खड़ा करते हुए बुर्के पर प्रतिबंध की मांग उठाई
भाजपा के एक नेता ने सोमवार को ‘बुर्के’ पर प्रतिबंध की मांग करके नया विवाद उत्पन्न कर दिया। उनका कहना है कि बुर्का राष्ट्रीय सुरक्षा के लिए खतरा है।
रघुराज सिंह ने कहा कि देश में बुर्के पर प्रतिबंध लगना चाहिए जैसा अन्य कई देशों में है।
सिंह हाल ही में तब सुर्खियों में आये थे, जब उन्होंने मुख्यमंत्री योगी आदित्यनाथ के खिलाफ नारेबाजी करने वाले एएमयू के छात्रों को कथित तौर पर जिन्दा दफन करने की धमकी दी थी।
उन्होंने कहा, ‘‘मेरा स्पष्ट मानना है कि बुर्का श्रीलंका, चीन, अमेरिका और कनाडा में इस्तेमाल नहीं होता। इसे हमारे देश में भी प्रतिबंधित होना चाहिए ताकि आतंकवादी इसका फायदा ना उठा पायें। शाहीन बाग में लोग बुर्का पहनकर बैठे हैं। बुर्का आतंकवादियों, चोरों और असामाजिक तत्वों को छिपने में मदद करता है इसलिए इस पर प्रतिबंध लगना चाहिए।’
सिंह ने बुर्के की उत्पत्ति समझाते हुए कहा, ‘‘यह रामायण की शूर्पणखा से निकला। जब उसके नाक कान काटे गये तो वह अरब भाग गयी जहां छिपने के लिए रेगिस्तान था। चूंकि उसके नाक कान कट गये थे, इसलिए उसने बुर्के से अपना चेहरा छिपाया। बुर्का मानव के लिए आवश्यक नहीं है।’’
सिंह की पार्टी में स्थिति के बारे में पूछने पर भाजपा प्रवक्ता चंद्रमोहन ने कहा कि वह ना तो मंत्री हैं और ना ही विधायक।
