Chidambaram’s arrest puts a question mark on India’s democracy: Urmila Matondkar

On the occasion of former prime minister late Rajiv Gandhi’s 75th birth anniversary actor turned politician Congress leader Urmila Matondkar arrived in Nagpur to be a part of the event Azadi se Azadi ki or (?????? ?? ?????? ?? ??) as the chief guest. The event, which included numerous dramas and musical performances, depicted the golden pages of Indian history and the contribution of Congress party towards nation building.

Speaking about the event, Urmila in an exclusive interview with Nation Next said, When Narendraji (Jichkar) briefed me about the concept of the event, I was thrilled because I thought it was unique and interesting. More so, it was depicted so beautifully.

Speaking further, Urmila told Nation Next, People ask quite a daring question that what has Congress done in the past 70 years Post independence our country didn’t even manufacture a needle. Today, things have changed and its because Congress developed our nation.

Speaking further with us, Urmila censured the recent arrest of former home and finance minister of India P Chidambaram by the CBI and the grilling of MNS leader Raj Thackeray by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), she said, Chidambarams arrest puts a question mark on India’s democracy.

The motto of the play was to convey the message that not everything that’s on social media can be trusted. It can be misleading. Popular slogans like ?Jai jawan jai kisan? were also raised during the play.

The event was conceptualised, convened and spearheaded by Bahujan Vichar Manch leader Narendra Jichkar. Jichkar told Nation Next, The event was organised so that people at large realise the struggle and efforts put in by all prime ministers of the Congress right from Jawaharlal Nehru to Manmohan Singh. India wasn’t built in a day; it was developed brick by brick by the Congress.

He added, For all the people, especially the BJP, who say that the Congress didn’t do anything for the country since independence, need to witness the event. The Congress party built the nation post independence.

The event was held at Vasantrao Deshpande Hall in the presence of prominent Congress leaders including Muzaffar Hussain, Sunil Kedar, Anees Ahmed, Kundatai Vijaykar, Praful Gaudadhe Patil to name a few. The play was written and directed by Salim Sheikh.

Below are some pictures of the event:

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
