(नयी दिल्ली)सोनिया गांधी ने गौरव गोगोई को संसद में उपनेता और रवनीत सिंह बिट्टू को सचेतक बना कर चिठ्ठी वाले नेताओं को स्पष्ट सन्देश दिया
कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष श्रीमती सोनिया गांधी ने हाल के दिनों में संसद से जुड़ी जिन समितियों का गठन किया और जिन नेताओं को प्रमुख जिम्मेदारियां दीं, उससे ये संकेत मिलते हैं कि पत्र विवाद से जुड़े नेताओं को तवज्जो नहीं दी गई और उन्हें एक तरह से संदेश देने का प्रयास भी किया गया।
पार्टी की तरफ से बृहस्पतिवार को लोकसभा में गौरव गोगोई को उप नेता नियुक्त किया गया तो रवनीत सिंह बिट्टू को सचेतक बनाया गया। इस तरह राज्यसभा में जयराम रमेश को मुख्य सचेतक नियुक्त करने के साथ ही दोनों सदनों में पार्टी की रणनीति तय करने के मकसद से पांच-पांच सदस्यीय समितियां भी बनाई गई हैं।
राज्यसभा की पांच सदस्यीय समिति में नेता प्रतिपक्ष गुलाम नबी आजाद और उप नेता आनंद शर्मा को स्थान मिला है, हालांकि इसमें राहुल गांधी के करीबी माने जाने वाले संगठन महासचिव केसी वेणुगोपाल और वरिष्ठ नेता अहमद पटेल एवं रमेश को भी शामिल किया गया है
लोकसभा में दो बार के सांसद गौरव गोगोई को उप नेता की जिम्मेदारी दी गई है जिसे पूर्व केंद्रीय मंत्रियों मनीष तिवारी और शशि थरूर के लिए एक संदेश के तौर पर देखा जा रहा है।
कुछ दिनों पहले भी सोनिया ने केंद्र सरकार की ओर से जारी प्रमुख अध्यादेशों के संदर्भ में पार्टी का रुख तय करने के लिए जिस पांच सदस्यीय समिति का गठन किया था उसमें भी पत्र विवाद से संबंधित किसी नेता को जगह नहीं दी गई थी। उस समिति में राज्यसभा से पी चिदंबरम, रमेश और दिग्विजय सिंह थे तो लोकसभा से डॉक्टर अमर सिंह और गोगोई को शामिल किया गया।’’
आजाद, शर्मा, तिवारी, और थरूर उन 23 नेताओं में शामिल हैं जिन्होंने कांग्रेस के संगठन में व्यापक बदलाव, सामूहिक नेतृत्व और पूर्णकालिक अध्यक्ष की मांग को लेकर हाल ही में सोनिया गांधी को पत्र लिखा था। इसको लेकर बड़ा विवाद खड़ा हुआ।

A day after a stormy Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, Sibal made the remarks in a cryptic tweet
Sibal had hit out at Rahul Gandhi on Twitter on Monday for a purported remark slamming the letter writers.
Sibal, who is not a part of the CWC, withdrew his tweet a little later after being “informed by Rahul Gandhi personally that he never said what was attributed to him”.
The Congress also officially denied that Rahul Gandhi had accused any party leader of “colluding with the BJP”.
Former president Rahul Gandhi, it is learnt, launched a sharp attack against the signatories of the letter, questioning their timing as well as the fact they went public with their grievances.

[New Delhi,]SC Refuses to Stay Demonetisation Notification
Supreme Court today refused to stay the government’s notification demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes but asked it to spell out the steps taken to minimise public inconvenience.
Bench Of Chief Justice T S Thakur and D Y Chandrachud said.”We will not be granting any stay,”
The remarks were made after some advocates insisted on a stay.
Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for one of the petitioners, however, said he was not asking for a stay on the notification but seeking answers from the government about the steps taken to remove public inconvenience.
The bench asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to file an affidavit about the measures already undertaken by the government and the RBI to minimise public inconvenience and also the steps likely to be undertaken in future.
Without issuing any notice to the Centre or the RBI, the bench posted the matter for further hearing on November 25
[New Delhi]Supreme Court,Atlast,Takes Unusual Stand & Appoints UP Lokayukta
SC, has ,Appointed Justice Virendra Singh as UP Lokayukta Which Is To Be Complied With Up to 20th December.
In an unusual order, the Supreme Court today exercised its constitutional authority and appointed former High Court judge, Justice Virendra Singh, as Lokayukta of Uttar Pradesh after the state government failed to comply with its directives.
In an embarrassment for the SP government in Uttar Pradesh, the bench examined a list of nominees and ordered the appointment.
“The failure of constitutional functionaries to comply with the orders of the highest court of the land is deeply regretted and astonishing,” a bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi said, adding, “We, therefore, proceed to exercise our right under Article 142 of the Constitution to remedy the situation by passing an appropriate order.”
The court said that it appoints Justice Singh as Lokayukta and asked the state government to file a report by December 20 indicating compliance of its order.
The bench regretted that its several orders have not been “heeded” by the constitutional functionaries — the chief minister, the leader of opposition and the chief justice of the Allahabad high court.
In the forenoon, the bench took strong note of the submission of senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the state government, that though it had shortlisted five names but no consensus has been arrived at on a specific person.
The bench then asked Sibal to provide the names by 12.30 PM today itself and said, “we know how to get our orders complied with”.
The law provides that a high-powered committee of the chief minister, the leader of opposition and the chief justice of the concerned high court together appoints the chief of the state ombudsman.
Earlier on December 14, the apex court had rapped the UP government for not appointing Lokayukta in the state despite its directions, saying it seemed that appointing authorities have their “own agenda”.
The bench was hearing the pleas filed by Mahendra Kumar Jain and lawyer Radhakant Tripathi seeking a direction to the state to appoint the Lokayukta at the earliest in pursuance of the Supreme Court orders.
