I have no plans to quit politics, says Dr Satish Chaturvedi during his public felicitation programme

Recently, former minister of Maharashtra Dr Satish Chaturvedi was honoured for his D.Lit. degree at the 103rd convocation of Nagpur University. Dr Satish Chaturvedi Satkar Samiti on November 29 too organised an event at Chitnavis Centre to felicitate Chaturvedi for his D.Lit.

Dr Satish Chaturvedi did a research on Gandhian Movement from 1920 to 1942, that includes details about how our politics changed post independence with regards to Kashmir and it’s partition. Dr Satish Chaturvedi was also awarded a PhD degree on Gandhian Movement? in 2012. Former Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde was the chief guest at the programme. Former Supreme Court judge Justice V S Sirpurkar (Retd), Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, former High Court Judge Justice Vijay Daga, senior journalist Rahul Deo, veteran journalist Baburao Vaidya, former Minister Anil Deshmukh, former MP Datta Meghe, Dr Vedpraksh Mishra, MLA Sunil Kedar, Atal Bahadur Singh, Girish Gandhi, Nitin Raut and Babanrao Taywade also marked their presence at the programme.

Nitin Raut in his speech praised Chaturvedi for his social work as a politician and an educationist. Chief guest Sushilkumar Shinde, who’s shared a close bond with Chaturvedi for years, said that the latter possesses a logical mind. He also stated, Satish is a good learner and we also encouraged him to guide the youngsters so that they can be benefitted from his knowledge. This achievement (of obtaining a D.Lit. degree) is rare by any political leader. Amar Singh too shared his experience with Chaturvedi by recalling his college days. He said, Since then he had a political streak in him. Through his research, now people who have apprehensions about Gandhiji, would come to know the real him. Dr Vedprakash Mishra, who was of the view that Chaturvedis thesis is his biggest achievement by far, said that the research done by Chaturvedi would be beneficial for the younger generation, as they would get to learn more about India’s history.

Justice V S Sirpurkar (Retd) termed Satish Chaturvedi as a sensible politician of all time as he holds two important degrees. He recalled their college days when Chaturvedi entered into student politics as Chatra Shaktis leader. He also said that Chaturvedis mother was extremely lucky to have a son like him. One of the guests, Vijay Daga, said that he was an extremely studious and hard working student, who stood meritorious in his MA (History) exams. Sushilkumar Shinde felicitated Dr Satish Chaturvedi and Abha Chaturvedi with a memento. Dr Satish Chaturvedi, during his speech said, I have no plans to quit politics. I will continue to study history. I’ll publish a book on my thesis, which will hopefully remove all the misconceptions about Mahatma Gandhi and his movement of freedom.

Politicians, educationist and eminent people from every section of the society were present during the programme. Dr Bhumika Agrawal and Dr Vivek Nanote hosted the programme.

Nagpur: Married man accused of girlfriend’s rape commits suicide on Facebook live



A 38-year-old married man named Manish alias Raj Yadav, on Sunday, committed suicide during a Facebook live-stream after allegedly being accused of rape by his girlfriend and her family in Nagpur.

During the live stream, Manish, who was married and a father to three children, stated that his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kajal, along with her family members demanded a sum of five lakh rupees and threatened to press charges of rape if he failed to do so.

On September 6, the situation became grave as the woman’s family accused him of eloping after Kajal went missing from her residence.

The deceased refused the claims of having any sexual relationship with the woman and identified her, her family, and a photo studio operator responsible for his condition. He, then, jumped into the river.

After the live video surfaced online, Kalamna Police launched a search operation and recovered the deceased’s body from the river. Four people have been detained in the case for questioning. Further investigation is underway.
