  • Income Tax dept

The former secretary of Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) chief Mayawati, Netaram, was raided by the Income Tax (IT) Department on Tuesday over suspected tax evasions amounting to Rs 100 crore.

Hitting out Congress, Mayawati said, "The SP-BSP alliance is flawless for defeating the BJP, especially in Uttar Pradesh".

Mysore-Kodagu was another constituency that JD (S) had demanded from the old Mysuru region, but could not bag it due to opposition from Congress Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah as the seat is in his home turf, the sources said.

One of the most interesting names in the list is that of former Congress MP Priya Dutt, who had earlier written to Congress president Rahul Gandhi against contesting elections. All candidates announced in the new list are from Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

"She doesn't have even a single seat in Parliament".

Muslim Congresswoman Thanks Fox News for Condemning Pirro Remarks
Fox News denounced remarks made by host Jeanine Pirro over the weekend that suggested Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) opposes the United States Constitution because she wears a hijab.

Some Congress supporters see a likeness between Priyanka and her powerful grandmother Indira Gandhi, India's first female prime minister, and are banking on "Priyanka magic" to win votes.

The Congress and JD (S), which fought bitterly against each other during 2018 assembly polls, joined hands to form the government as the election threw up a hung verdict. "We don't need her", he told PTI. "They are desperate", he said, referring to Mayawati's party. This view also we respect. So is Jyotiraditya Scindia, who has been put in charge of western Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing party leaders from various states, excluding Uttar Pradesh, in New Delhi, Mayawati has said while several parties are "eager" for an alliance, the BSP would not do anything for mere electoral gains as it could "harm the BSP movement".

While in the first list declared last week, out of the 11 seats named by the Congress, it had won eight seats in 2009 Lok Sabha polls.
