Nasi-Ul-Mulk to be interim Prime Miniser of Pakistan


Pakistan opposition leader has made a plea to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to appoint an interim prime minister and four interim chief ministers to supervise the process for the next general elections due by mid-2018.

One of the staunch rivals of the ruling party and leader of Awami Muslim League Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad in a statement issued in Lahore on Sunday has made a request to the Chief Justice Saqib Nisar to appoint a neutral interim prime minister for the country and chief ministers for Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to ensure transparency before the next elections are held.

Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad who is also an ally of another opposition leader Imran Khan, the chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaaf (PTI), also said the establishment of an independent and powerful interim administration was necessary before the next elections.

Pakistan’s opposition leaders are fearing the installation of a pro-ruling party interim set-up before 90-days from election, a condition elaborated in the Constitution. Officially the elections are due by the end of June or July and a set interim set up must come by April if the elections are to be held on time.

Several other political opponents of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government have also called for setting up of an interim government to supervise and ensure fair and free elections in the country.

One of the leading opponents of present government, General(Rtd.)Pervez Musharraf has also made repeated calls for establishment of a caretaker government in Pakistan to meet the rising challenges.

A caretaker government is mandated to hold the general elections within three months or 90 days and then hand over affairs of the state to the elected government as those holding official or ministerial positions cannot take part in elections.

As per the Pakistani Constitution, “the purpose of the caretaker Cabinet in Pakistan is to create a conducive environment for genuine elections, ensuring the neutrality of the government to facilitate a smooth transfer of power from one elected government to another.”

The Constitution also says that as a non-partisan administration, the caretaker’s primary role is to exercise the routine functions of government. The experience of other countries with this institution shows that an efficient caretaker government requires a clear set of rules that define its mandate, function and neutrality.

According to media reports, the ruling party’s Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will resume consultations with leaders of parliamentary parties next week.

But according to a report published earlier in the daily Express Tribune “these contacts will only be customary and decision for caretaker prime minister and National Assembly will be taken after proper agreement with leader of the opposition so as to avoid confrontation with parliamentary committee and the Election Commission”.

Before the elections are announced the National Assembly would be dissolved but the Senate would remain intact. The ruling party is seriously worried about the role of newly elected Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani during the interim three months period.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Abbasi who is also a leader of the ruling PML-N government, has also expressed his serious reservations on election of new Senate chairman who would become an acting president of the country in the absence of PML-N- nominated current President Mamnoon Hussain.

Abbasi’s strong criticism of the Senate chairman has also drawn reactions from allied party leaders.

PML-N’s long-time ally, Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam leader and Senator Abdul Ghafoor Haidri who is now part of new alliance of Islamists on Sunday criticised the prime minister’s statement against election of Sadiq Sanjrani.

Senator Haidri, a deputy secretary-general of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA or United Action Union), in his statement said that the “prime minister should represent the nation and not one party” and claimed that “the way the PM has criticised the Senate chairman election, he himself would come under criticism”.

Monsoon hits Kerala 3 days before


The southwest monsoon hit Kerala on Tuesday, three days before its scheduled arrival, says the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

The onset of monsoon over the southern state marks the commencement of the four-month-long rainy season in the country.

June 1 is the official onset date for the arrival of monsoon in the country and it takes more than a month-and-half to cover the entire country.

The IMD has made a forecast of “normal” rainfall this season.

Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency and a rival of the IMD, had said that the monsoon made its arrival in Kerala + on Monday.

According to the IMD, if after May 10, 60 per cent of the available 14 stations — Minicoy, Amini, Thiruvananthapuram, Punalur, Kollam, Allapuzha, Kottayam, Kochi, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Thalassery, Kannur, Kudulu and Mangalore — report 2.5 mm or more rainfall for two consecutive days, the onset of monsoon over Kerala can be declared on the second day. This is one of the main parameters for declaring the arrival of monsoon.

Besides this factor, the westerly winds must be up to 15,000 feet above main sea level and outgoing long-wave radiation less than 200 wm-2 (watt per square metre) to declare the arrival of monsoon.

Swaraj India leader Yogendra Yadav on Tuesday warned that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will face the anger of the farmers in the 2019 general elections.

He made the remarks at a meeting arranged by the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee which marked June 5 as ‘Mandsaur Shaheed Kisan Smriti Diwas’ as six farmers were killed in the police firing in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur in 2017.

Criticising the inaction of the Madhya Pradesh government, he said that six farmers and a child named Abhishek were killed by police, but “to this day no concrete action was taken against the police officers responsible for this heinous murder”.

Last year farmers demanding the better price for the crops triggered the widespread protest in Mandsaur, in which six people killed in police firing. Initially the Madhya Pradesh government denied police firing but finally Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan confirmed it

The committee members demanded the immediate arrest of the of police personnel responsible for the killing of the six farmers.

The committee also met President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday and urged him to immediately pass the two bills prepared by the farmers of the country and asked him to arrange a parliament session to resolve the agrarian crisis.

Briefing the media about the interaction with the President, AIKS leaders said 21 political parties have signed their support for the bills and expressed confidence in passing both the bills.

Describing the four years regime of the prime minister as anti-farmer, V.M. Singh, the national President of Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangathan said: “Modi should immediately waive the crop loans of the farmers unconditionally in one go.”

Expressing disappointment at the rising fuel prices, he said that this has terribly hit the farmers, most of whom use diesel generators as there is absence of electricity in most of the villages.

I do politics in the area where Rahul Gandhi also does politics: Samriti Irani


Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani on Tuesday pooh-poohed Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s statement that he was ready to be the Prime Minister in case the Congress emerged as the single largest party after the 2019 general elections.

“I do politics in the area where Rahul Gandhi also does politics. In Amethi, he has lost every Assembly and local election in four years. How can a person not guaranteed to get re-elected in his own constituency have chances of returning to power in the country,” she told journalists in the Meghalaya capital.

“People in Amethi are not happy and he is talking of development in different parts of the country. It was during our tenure that Passport Office, Chief Medical Officer’s office and District Collector’s office in Amethi were inaugurated, while the Congress did nothing in its own bastion. How can he talk of development in the country’” the Bharatiya Janata Party leader added.

Noting that the earlier United Progressive Alliance government left behind a legacy of apathy, she said: “This is a 48-year-old legacy of apathy of one family versus 48 months of good governance under (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi,” Irani said.

“I would like to remind you that when we came to power and got the opportunity to serve the people, the economic condition of the country was poor. The government had to address the financial challenges in every sector, especially pertaining to the scams and debts incurred under the UPA rule,” she said.

Evading a direct reply to queries on fuel price hike and black money, Irani assured the people that her colleagues in the government and party President Amit Shah would offer a “time-bound solution” to the issues soon.

On Congress claims that the NDA government was inaugurating projects in the northeast which were initiated in the UPA rule, the Union Minister pointed out that the NITI Aayog, Mudra loans and the Jan Dhan Yojana were initiated by the current dispensation.

A NITI forum for the northeast was formed and its first meeting was held on May 10.

“The northeast is an area of prime focus as the Prime Minister has given a clarion call for its all-round development. A forum had been set up under the NITI Aayog to work to this end…,” the Minister said.

Now Digvijay will say “SORRY” to Gadkari


A court here on Tuesday disposed off the defamation case filed by Union Minister Nitin Gadkari against senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh after both expressed their desire to settle the matter.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) allowed the joint application filed by both seeking to withdraw the case.

BJP leader Gadkari in 2012 had filed the criminal defamation case against Singh, who had accused him of having business links with his party MP Ajay Sancheti, who allegedly pocketed a huge sum in the coal block allocation.

Gadkari, in his statement recorded in the court, had denied having any business ties with Sancheti and said that Singh levelled “totally false and defamatory” allegations against him to “give the impression that I have been responsible for allocation of the coal mines” to Sancheti.

Govinda in Rangeela Raja as Mallya

Pahlaj Nihalani’s upcoming film based on infamous business tycoon Vijay Mallya; Govinda to play lead role

Actor Govinda plays a man who is the biggest scamster of our times in the upcoming film Rangeela Raja, says its director Pahlaj Nihalani.

It is being speculated that the former Central Board Of Film Certification chief has plotted a comeback role for Govinda in Rangeela Raja, which is meant to blow the lid off a certain Mr Mallya’s international scam.

Apparently, Govinda plays a smooth, suave, womanising scamster. His entire character and look is reportedly based on Mallya.

Last week, Nihalani shot a song-and-dance sequence with Govinda choreographed by Chinni Prakash where the Mallya card was played up.

“Not the Mallya card, the Mallya calendar. The entire look, feel, appearance and rhythm of the song sequence is based on the Kingfisher calendars,” Nihalani said.

Rangeela Raja, which opens in August, reunites Govinda and Nihalani after 35 years.

“It felt just like old times when we shot together for his debut film Ilzaam. Govinda is fitter now than he has ever been. And Chinni Prakash who has done many of Govinda’s dances in my films gave Govinda steps this time that only Govinda can do. No concession for age. And Govinda wasn’t looking for easier steps,” said Nihalani.
