Uttar Pradesh, hub of dreaded criminals, is back in the news again. After Unnao, the horror in Kanpur has shocked the nation, which is still struggling to see the hanging of 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape & murder victim.

Goons, accused of molesting a 13-year-old girl in 2018, assaulted her morher while on bail. The woman, brutally beaten up by the accused, later died in the hospital.

The incident exposed the flaws in our justice delivery system again. Allowing the molestation accused get bail and not providing protection to the victim’s family, resulted in this horrific crime.

When this horror will stop?

While the Delhi BJP took a dig at the AAP Government over the Odd-Even formula that took effect from today, it has found many takers, including the UP Government.

Uttar Pradesh Forest & Environment Minister Dara Singh Chauhan earlier talked about implementing Odd Even scheme in various cities, including Lucknow, but later backtracked, probably due to political compulsions.

Similarly, Congress leader and Koraput MP Saptagiri Ulaka too praised the formula, saying it has definitely improved the traffic condition as well as burning sensation. The formula seems to have backing of people in Delhi as per the trends on Social Media.

A beleaguered Congress, which is facing reverses across the country over the last few years, hired poll strategist Prashant Kishor to revive its fortunes in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh. After the snub from Captain Amarinder Singh in Punjab, PK zeroed in on Uttar Pradesh. And, his strategies have left even the hardcore Congress supporters shell-shocked.

If the appointment of Raj Babbar as UPCC Chief and hate monger Imran Masood as the Vice President of the state unit, was not enough, Sheila Dikshit’s nomination as Congress’ CM candidate in UP, has exposed how connected Prashant is to the ground realities in the state.

Sheila’s nomination came on a day when the Delhi ACB summoned her to appear before it on August 26 in connection with the water tanker scam. Sheila, who lost the assembly polls against Kejriwal, is seen as Congress’s last hope to revive its lost glory in UP. But, political pundits believe that a person of her stature was chosen as a scapegoat so that she gets all brickbats instead of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who will lead the poll campaign in Uttar Pradesh.

Four major States namely Uttar Pradesh , Bihar , Odisha and Maharashtra have agreed to join “UDAY” Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojana today. This was announced by Shri Piyush Goyal, Minister of State ( IC) for Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy at a media briefing here today .

Shri Goyal said “ this is a very important day in the history of power sector in India where on one day, 4th Jan , four very large and important States have agreed to come on board and joined the UDAY Scheme.” Shri Goyal further stated that within 2 months of the announcement of UDAY Scheme , a total of 15 out of 29 States /UTs have voluntarily joined UDAY which covers 90 % of the total debt of Discoms. The fifteen States are Uttar Pradesh, Bihar , Odisha , Maharashtra , Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Jammu & Kashmir , Jharkhand , Gujarat , Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan .

ABOUT UDAY SCHEME:

The Scheme – UDAY (Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojana) has been launched to improve financial and operational efficiencies of power distribution companies (DISCOMs). It envisages to reduce interest burden, cost of power and AT&C losses. Consequently, DISCOM would become sustainable to supply adequate and reliable power enabling 24×7 power supply. The scheme provides that States would take over 75% debt of Discoms, as on 30th September, 2015 in two years.

UDAY has inbuilt incentives encouraging State Governments to voluntarily restructure their debts. These incentives include taking over of DISCOM debt by the States outside the fiscal deficit limits; reduction in the cost of power through various measures such as coal linkage rationalization, liberal coal swaps, coal price rationalization, correction in coal grade slippage, allocation of coal linkages at notified prices; priority/additional funding through schemes of MoP & MNRE; and, reduction in interest burden. UDAY is different from earlier restructuring schemes in several ways including flexibility of keeping debt taken over outside fiscal deficit limit, reduction in cost of power and a series of time bound interventions for improving operational efficiency. UDAY provides for measures that will reduce the cost of power generation, which would ultimately benefit consumers.

Narendra Modi’s key aide and the man behind BJP’s spectacular success in Uttar Pradesh in 2014 polls, Amit Shah has been appointed as the BJP President. He will replace Rajnath Singh, who has now become the Union Home Minister. It was Amit Shah, who played a key role in the installation of Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of India. The decision to appoint Amit Shah as the party President, was taken at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting.

Amit-ShahUnder Amit Shah, BJP won 71 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh, while two seats went to its ally Apna Dal. No other party had tasted such a resounding victory in the recent past. Shah held the post of General Secretary in the BJP.

Amit Shah, born on October 22, 1964, was a four-time MLA from Sarkhej in Gujarat. He won the elections in 2012 from Naranpura. He held various portfolios in the Narendra Modi Cabinet in Gujarat. After his name cropped up in various “fake encounter” cases during his tenure as the Gujarat Home Minister, he had to resign.

Later, he was arrested and put in jail. Shah was later granted bail on the condition that he would not stay in Gujarat. He was allowed to return to Gujarat in 2012. He got a clean chit in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case and recently received the Z Plus security cover. With Amit Shah at the helm, the BJP will focus more on building its organisation in the states, where it has low-key presence.
