Shivraj Patil stirs controversy after saying lessons of Jihad in Gita…
Former Home Minister Shivraj Patil, has found himself embroiled in a major controversy as he has equated Krishna’s teachings in the Bhagwad Gita to “jihad.” Speaking at the launch of former Congress Union minister Mohsina Kidwai’s biography, he said, as ANI reports, “It’s said there’s a lot of discussion on Jihad in Islam… Even after all efforts, if someone doesn’t understand a clean idea, power can be used, it’s mentioned in the Quran & Gita… Shri Krishna taught lessons of Jihad to Arjun in a part of Gita in Mahabharat.” Trying to defend his remarks later, he said, “”If you kill Mahatma Gandhi, it is Jihad. The act of killing him is Jihad.”
While the BJP has strongly condemned this, spokesperson Shehzad Poonawala in a series of tweets said that it was the Congress who coined Hindu/Saffron terror, opposed Ram Mandir, questioned Ram JI’s existence, and equated Hindutva to ISIS. He added, “This Hindu hatred is not a sanyog but a Votebank ka Prayog – it is a deliberate ploy before Gujarat polls to polarise a vote bank. Earlier “Janeudhari” Rahul Gandhi also said things about Hindutva; said LeT was less dangerous than Hindu groups and Digvijaya blamed 26/11 on Hindus.”
After AAP’s Gopal Italia & Rajendra Pal, not to be outdone in Hindu hatred & votebank politics,Congress’ Shivraj Patil says Shri Krishna taught “Jihad” to Arjun!

It maybe recalled that Patil was the Union Home Minister from 2004 to 2008, the period during which the term Saffron terror was coined, when the Batla House encounter was called fake, and when 26 /11 took place. He was also criticised heavily for the delay in deployment of NSG forces during 26/11 and for his various wardrobe changes during that crucial time!

However, since it is mandatory for all contestants to submit their account of election expenses among other mandatory requirements under EC rules and the Representation of the People Act.

According to Section 10A, the Election Commission can disqualify a contestant for a period of three years from the date of the order if he/she has failed to lodge an account of election expenses within the time and in the manner required by law and has no good reason or justification for the failure.
‘CBI under UPA govt. pressurised me to frame Modi,’ recalls Amit Shah
Home Minister Amit Shah said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), under the Congress-led UPA government, tried to pressurise him in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case filed against him when he was the Home Minister of Gujarat.
Shah said the same, in New Delhi on Wednesday, while responding to a question on Opposition’s charge that Prime Minister Narendra Modi government is ‘misusing’ central agencies to target them.
Shah said the CBI tried to put pressure on him to ‘frame’ then Gujarat Chief Minister Modi in the alleged fake encounter case during the Congress government.
Speaking about ex-Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s conviction in a defamation case by Gujarat Court, Shah said the Congress leader was not the only politician who was convicted by a court and lost membership of the legislature.
Speaking about ‘misuse’ of central agencies, Shah said, “I will tell you how agencies are misused, I have been a victim of it. The Congress did not file a corruption case against us. There was an encounter when I was the home minister of Gujarat. A case was filed against me and the CBI arrested me.”
He added, “In 90% of the questions during my interrogation, I was asked why I was getting bothered and they said they would leave me if I name Narendra Modi. Even then, we did not protest or wear black clothes or stop Parliament’s functioning. An SIT was formed against Modi, which the Supreme Court itself dismissed.”
He concluded by saying, “In my entire interrogation, I was told ‘Modi ka naam de do, de do. But why should I frame him? Today, the same Congress is crying over its fate.”
Adani’s entire money belongs to PM Modi: Sanjay Raut
Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Sanjay Raut claimed that all the wealth of billionaire businessman Gautam Adani belonged to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Raut made the claim on Wednesday by stating, “I agree with Kejriwal’s statement. He has rightly said that Adani is only a face. All the money which is with Adani in fact belongs to PM Modi and it needs to be probed. Adani is being protected because of all that. During his chief ministership, Adani’s empire came into existence. He (Modi) speaks on all topics but not on Adani. The Opposition is struggling, your industrialist (Adani) has looted the country.”
Speaking further, Raut said, “Rahul (Gandhi) also rightly raised a question regarding the ₹20,000 crore in Adani’s account. Give us answers. There is no point in talking about what happened when you were CM.”
He further asked, “Why don’t you (Modi) talk about the issues raised by Rahul Gandhi and the JPC demanded by the Opposition on the Adani issue? What is your relationship with Adani? Are the ED and the CBI only for us (the Opposition), not for Adani? Will you do the audit of the PMCARES fund?”
