Devi Singh Bhati, a former minister in the Vasundhara Raje government, returned to the BJP on Thursday, joining the party along with several new inductees.

CLC Coaching Director Shravan Choudhary, former BSP candidate from Bandikui Bhagchand Saini, and BL Ranwan of Getwell Hospital Sikar also joined the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The party welcomed the new members in presence of State President CP Joshi, National General Secretary and State In-charge Arun Singh, State Election In-charge and Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, and Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore.

At the event at party headquarters here, Arun Singh said there is a lot of enthusiasm and eagerness to take membership in the BJP in Rajasthan.

He alleged that today every section of the state is troubled by the “jungle raj and misgovernance” of the Congress government.

“Today the family of Bharatiya Janata Party is growing and people’s faith and trust in BJP has increased,” he said.

Pralhad Joshi said that the new inductees joined the party having faith in the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Bhati, who returned to the party fold after a gap of five years, said he was proud to have come back.

“I had strayed on some issues and had some complaints, they have now gone away,” he said.

Chief Minister Tamang’s Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) swept the Assembly elections held recently by winning 31 out of the 32 seats, besides winning the lone Lok Sabha seat in the state

Krishna Kumari Rai, the wife of Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang, quit as the MLA from Namchi Singhithang just a day after taking oath of office.

Chief Minister Tamang’s Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) swept the Assembly elections held recently by winning 31 out of the 32 seats, besides winning the lone Lok Sabha seat in the state.

Meanwhile, after his wife stepped down as the MLA, the Chief Minister said that it was a unanimous decision taken by the SKM.

“My wife has vacated her seat in alignment with the unanimous decision of the party, prioritising its welfare and objectives. It is important to note that, at the request of the parliamentary committee of the SKM, she contested the elections for the welfare of our party.

“SKM is committed to providing opportunities to the genuine and dedicated party functionaries. To the residents of Namchi-Singithang, I assure you that you will continue to have a dedicated and genuine MLA who will serve your interests,” the Chief Minister said.

In a statement issued earlier, Krishna Kumari Rai said, “With a very heavy heart, I write to inform you that I have officially submitted my resignation from the Namchi-Singithang constituency. I had never imagined that I would enter electoral politics so soon, and to garner the overwhelming support of everyone was beyond my imagination, for which I am forever grateful.”

“I have always viewed politics as a social activity, and the reason I entered the election was because I had to honour the decisions made by the parliamentary board and the party president,” she added.

Rai also asserted that the new candidate for the Namchi-Singithang constituency will be a committed and dedicated person who will serve the people of this Assembly segment.

The Speaker of the legislative Assembly has accepted Rai’s resignation.

At any time before noon on the day preceding the date fixed for the election, any member can give notice in writing to the secretary general of a motion supporting another member for the office of the speaker, a Lok Sabha bulletin noted

The Lok Sabha will elect its new Speaker on June 26 for which notices for motions supporting candidates can be submitted by members by noon a day before, the Lok Sabha secretariat said on Thursday. The 18th Lok Sabha will meet for the first time on June 24 and the session will conclude on July 3.

At any time before noon on the day preceding the date fixed for the election, any member can give notice in writing to the secretary general of a motion supporting another member for the office of the speaker, a Lok Sabha bulletin noted.

“In the present case, notices of motions for the election of the Speaker can be given before 12 noon on Tuesday, June 25,” it said.

While first two days will be devoted for oath taking of newly elected members, June 26 has been fixed for the election of the speaker. On June 27, President Droupadi Murmu will address a joint sitting of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

The notice for the motion has to be seconded by a third member. Also, it has to be accompanied by a statement by the candidate contesting the poll that he or she is willing to serve as Speaker if elected.

A member cannot propose one’s own name, or second a motion, the secretariat pointed out, citing rules.

A member in whose name a motion stands on the list of business will, unless makes a statement conveying unwillingness to move it, will move the motion when called upon to do so, it said.

The motions moved and duly seconded will be put one by one in the order in which they have been moved, and decided, if necessary, by a division. If any motion is carried (adopted), the person presiding the proceedings (a pro-tem speaker) will declare that the member proposed in the motion which has been carried has been chosen as the Speaker of the House. The other motions will become infructuous.

Uddhav Thackeray’s Party Won Lok Sabha Seats in Mumbai on Votes of Minorities: Devendra Fadnavis

The opposition’s victory was not due to the votes of Marathi speakers or common Mumbaikars or the north Indian population that has lived in the city for generations, Fadnavis said in his speech.. (Image: PTI file)

The Shiv Sena (UBT) won three of the six seats in the metropolis, while the BJP, the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena and the Congress emerged victorious in one constituency each

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday said candidates of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena (UBT), which prides itself on its sons of the soil agenda, won Lok Sabha elections in Mumbai on the votes of minorities as well as non-Marathi and non-Hindi speakers.

In the recently concluded general elections, the Shiv Sena (UBT) won three of the six seats in the metropolis, while the BJP, the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena and the Congress emerged victorious in one constituency each.

The opposition’s victory was not due to the votes of Marathi speakers or common Mumbaikars or the north Indian population that has lived in the city for generations, Fadnavis said in his speech.

The opposition won on the votes of those for whom the Shiv Sena (UBT) had started using “janaab” for Bal Thackeray instead of the more popular Hindu Hridaysamrat, the senior BJP leader asserted.

Uddhav Thackeray had also stopped beginning his speeches with “my Hindu brothers and sisters” in the last six months in order to win the support of the minorities, Fadnavis further claimed.

The fake narrative of the opposition during the Lok Sabha poll campaign about the BJP wanting to change the Constitution and end reservations hit the ruling party hard, he admitted. The BJP contested 28 out of the 48 seats in Maharashtra but could win on just nine, down from the 23 it wrested in the 2019 edition.

“The Mumbai Graduates’ constituency elections have been announced and we should win it again as we had given it to our former political ally (Shiv Sena) some years back. Now, it is time to win it back. Our candidate Kiran Shelar will win to prove that the fake narrative against the BJP will not work henceforth,” Fadnavis asserted.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the first head of government who implemented the Constitution in the entire country. Earlier, due to Article 370, the Constitution was not applicable in Jammu and Kashmir. After its (Article 370) scrapping, the Constitution is now applicable there as well,” he claimed.

The BJP got 26 lakh votes in Mumbai as against MVA candidates gaining 24 lakh votes but the “arithmetic of votes helped them, and we (ruling BJP and Shiv Sena) could win only two seats”, Fadnavis said.

“It is also a good indicator that the Worli assembly seat of Aaditya Thackeray could give a lead of only 6000 votes to their candidate (form South Mumbai Lok Sabha seat). It clearly means the Sena’s charisma is over, and the BJP will make inroads in the civic polls,” the deputy CM said.
