L to R: Mukesh Ambani, Vijay Wadettiwar

Recently appointed Leader of Opposition (LoP) from Congress in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Vijay Wadettiwar accused business tycoon Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio of cheating the Maharashtra government to the tune of Rs 4500 crore. He said that the government should recover the huge sum from the businessman.

Wadettiwar claimed that three years back, Ambani-led Jio sold mobile handsets to its customers by taking a refundable deposit amount for the same. The telecom company had claimed to refund the amount to its customers after three years. When no amount was refunded, Wadettiwar accused the company of cheating. 

When we spoke to Wadettiwar, he said, Jio had taken Rs 1500 each from its 3 crore customer as the refundable deposit. It never returned the money. If Jio sold the handsets without the refundable amount, it would have to pay 12.5% GST to the government.”

Wadettiwar, who’s at present the MLA of Brahmapuri, said the same during a discussion on budget during the on-going monsoon session at Vidhan Bhavan in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Remembrance

When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years

Late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. She would also tie rakhi to the latter.

Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?

The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.

After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”

To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”

On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.

Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
