Congress President Rahul Gandhi played a Good Samaritan by helping an injured constable during Congress roadshow in Bhopal on Monday. Gandhi spoke to the 24-year-old cop Nitin Baghel over phone after he hurt his leg while on duty. Nitin, who was deployed to keep the crowd at bay during the roadshow, got injured after his foot accidentally came very close to a bus wheel.

The young cop, who’s is posted in 15th battalion in Indore, was sent to Bhopal for the roadshow. As per TOI, Nitin said, I didn’t know how it happened. Suddenly, I realised the wheel of the bus went over my foot. With the help of people around, I could manage to save myself.

Soon after the accident that took place near VIP road, Upper Lake in Bhopal, Nitin was rushed to Hamidia Hospital. The moment Gandhi was told about the incident, he contacted Nitin. The injured cop said that the Congress chief called up Nitin and offered all kind of help for treatment. Nitin even told Gandhi that there was swelling in his leg and assured that he’d be fine soon.

Narhari Zirwal – the Deputy Speaker in Maharashtra Assembly – on Saturday (June 25) issued disqualification notice to 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs.

The MLAs, who are being led by Eknath Shinde, are currently staying at Guwahati in Assam. These MLAs are supposed to file their written replies by 5:30 pm on Monday (June 27).  If the MLAs are disqualified, Shinde will lose his legislator’s post and that, crucially, will see his revolt fail.

The Shiv Sena had moved the original notice against 12 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, late Thursday evening and added another four names on Friday.

Owing to escalating tensions between Maharashtra’s ruling coalition partner Shiv Sena and its internal rebel group, earlier in the day, the police in neighbouring Thane district, which is a bastion of Shiv Sena’s rebel leader Eknath Shinde, imposed Section 144. The order in Thane will remain in force till June 30.

Even as Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena is seeking disqualification of its rebel MLAs from the assembly, the rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde on Saturday (June 25) named their group as ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb.’

Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Keserkar said: “Our group will be called Shiv Sena Balasaheb. We will not merge with any party.” Kesarkar has also hinted at a possible alliance with the BJP. “We have only two options remaining in Maharashtra; to go with either the NCP-Congress or the BJP, otherwise the government cannot be formed. However, the question of allying with the BJP will be decided by Eknath Shinde. Whatever decision he takes, we will support it.”

Meanwhile Maharashtra Congress leader Ashok Chavan said: “Until it gets legal authorisation from the speaker, such type of groups will not be authorized.”
