Centre rejects dismissal of Yeddyurappa govt

" Breaking News" Details to follow

Karnataka Governor crosses all limits

DESPITE BJP makes clean sweep in Karnataka by-polls, conspiracy to remove the popular BJP Government in Karnataka by misusing the Governor’s office is undemocratic and unconstitutional.

Congress high command is trying to help the dying state Congress to save its face by uprooting the popular BJP Government and impose President’s rule. According to Shri Nitin Gadkari, national president of BJP, Congress lost the credibility and failed to win by-elections in the state. Governor of Karnataka is working like a Congress agent rather than upholding the democratic values. “The fact the Congress is moving to the third position cannot be digested by their high command and several union ministers from the state are working hand in glove with the Governor Shri Hans Raj Bhardwaj to topple the existing popular BJP Government which is enjoying full majority” he said while addressing the media on May 17 at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi. Nitin Gadkari further said that BJP Government is not in minority and ready to prove the majority in the Assembly if the Governor asks to prove it. Nitin Gadkari pointed out that Prime Minister had assured the delegation of senior NDA leaders who met him on May 16th that Central Government will not take any step that is against Constitution. He was surrounded with all the BJP MLAs and senior functionaries from Karnataka who flew from Bangalore to meet the President to request her not to impose President’s rule in the state and parade in the Rashtrapati Bhavan to express solidarity to the Yeddyurappa Government.

It can be recalled that apex court on May 13, 2011 restored membership of 11 BJP rebel MLAs and five Independent MLAs by quashing the Speaker Shri Bhopaiah’s order on October 11, 2010 hours before BS Yeddyurappa was to seek confidence vote in the assembly following their withdrawal of support to him. In the wake of the Supreme Court order, Governor of Karnataka on May 14, 2011 dashed off a confidential letter to the Union Government recommending imposing President’s rule in the State by mentioning Constitutional crisis. Karnataka Governor’s intention to trouble the BJP Government was evident when he did not give his nod to the cabinet decision to hold session from May 16th and humiliated Karnataka Government has decided to convene a legislature session from June 2, 2011. Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister S Suresh Kumar said that enough time is given to the Governor to summon the session and government hopes that Governor won’t give any reasons and smooth conduct of both the houses of legislature for a period of 10 days will happen.

Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa said that the strength of BJP members in the assembly have gone up to 119 with the backing of 11 rebel MLAs. The magic number to prove the majority in the assembly is 112 as one seat is vacant in the 224-member assembly.

The Rajya Sabha Member and the senior BJP leader Shri Venkaiah Naidu who arrived on May 16th in Bangalore said that Governor wants to rule the state and lobbying on to pull down the BJP Government in an undemocratic procedure.

It is coincidence that both the Supreme Court order and the by-polls results have come on the same day. Unfortunately apex court order attracted the media attention and the clean sweep made by BJP in the by-election was ignored. It was an all-round victory for Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa as the BJP wrested the three assembly seats from Congress and JD(S). Jagalur (Davangere District) and Bangarpet (Kolar district) were earlier held by the Congress and Chennapatna (Ramnagar District) was with JD(S). BJP candidate from Chennapatna C P Yogeshwar won by securing 75,275 votes.BJP candidate E M Narayanaswamy won from Bangarpet constituency by securing 56,824 votes and another BJP candidate S V Ramachandra won from Jagalur constituency by securing 41,961 votes.

Hurdles are not new for the BJP Government led by B S Yeddyurappa. From the day of assuming the seat of power both Congress and JD(S) are trying to destabilise the BJP government as they feel that BJP will emerge stronger as the day pass by and words of Hitler “One who wins without problem it is just “Victory” but one who wins with lot of troubles , that is “History”is worth mentioning here. BJP is confident in emerging victory in the present crisis and create a history.

Bhardwaj ''hell bent'' on toppling Yeddyurappa govt: Swamy

May 16 (PTI) Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy today alleged that Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj was "hell bent" on getting the Yeddyurappa government removed by "hook or crook". "The defiling of the Constitution by the Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj has attained the deplorable state it reached during the 1975-77 Emergency," Swamy said in a statement here. The Janata Party leader also hoped that the Congress Party "dare not precipitate an election in Karnataka which Yeddyurappa will win by a thumping two-third majority of Assembly seats," and demanded that the Prime Minister stopped "this debasement of the Constitution." Bhardwaj on Monday had recommended New Delhi to impose President's rule on the state following the Supreme Court judgement of reversing the Karnataka High Court decision of disqualifying 11 BJP rebel MLAs and five independents ahead of the October 10, 2010 floor test in the Assembly.

AIADMK victory will have effect on national politics: Modi

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who was invited to the swearing-in ceremony of J. Jayalalithaa here Monday, said the AIADMK's victory in the assembly polls will have its echo on the national politics.

Speaking to reporters, Modi said the AIADMK's victory is a verdict against corruption and price rise. Modi said he is confident that Jayalalithaa will give an efficient administration.
Jayalalithaa took over as the state's chief minister for a third time.

Yeddyurappa should be given a chance for floor test: Nitish

Patna, May 16, (PTI):

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday advocated that his Karnataka counterpart B S Yeddyurappa should be given a chance to prove his government's majority in the Assembly.

"Yeddyurappa government should be given a chance to prove majority in the Karnataka Assembly," Kumar told reporters on the sidelines of 'Janata Darbar' programme here.

"The House is the appropriate forum for the purpose of proving majority.. It will be transgressing limits if any kind of interference is made on issues related to the states", he said.

Kumar was commenting on Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj's recommendations to the Centre for imposition of President's rule in Karnataka.

The people gives Rigerous imprisionment for DMK in the T.N.Assembly ?

Capt.Vijayakanth of DMDK will be oppsition leader as latest news says

Beleaguered DMK has not only lost its power to rival AIADMK but the grand old Dravidian party also lost its status as the principal opposition party in the state assembly to actor Vijayakanth’s DMDK.

The DMKDK opened its account only five years ago with leader Vijayakanth entering the House as a lone member. Now, he will be heading a 27-member party in the Assembly.

With DMK party president M. Karunanidhi declaring that the people of Tamil Nadu have give him ‘proper rest’, his son and party treasurer, M.K Stalin, is expected to lead DMK in the House.

Much to the embarrassment, the DMK team would be sitting next to Vijayakanth and his deputy. With most of its veterans - as many as 21 ministers - taken off, the party is set to undergo testing times for the next five years in the Assembly.

Massive Victory for Jaya in Tamilnadu

Jayalalitha said "the people were totally disgusted with DMK and were waiting for a chance to vent their anger against the DMK government. Once they got the opportunity, they showed their anger and resentment in no uncertain terms," she told to the hundreds of people gathered, flashes of light from the fireworks streaking her face.

Ahead of her appearance, M Karunandhi, the head of the DMK, resigned as Chief Minister of the state.

In the Tamil Nadu elections, voters have attached no terms and conditions to their support for Jayalalithaa and her allies - so definitive is their verdict. During her election campaign, Jayalalithaa had predicted that with her allies, she would win upwards of 185 of the 234 seats in the Tamil Nadu assembly. She has proved that was not just political bluster. With her allies, she has won 199 of the state's 234 assembly seats - a skyscraper of a victory in a bitterly-fought political landscape.

Party sources say the AIADMK leader was so confident of returning to power that she had booked the Madras University Centenary Hall for her swearing-in. Known for being superstitious, she has reportedly indicated that she'd like the ceremony to take place on Sunday.

It's typical of Tamil Nadu politics that much of Jayalalithaa's speech was devoted to a rigorous inquest of the wrongs of the DMK government that she has booted out. "Over the past five years, Tamil Nadu has been totally ruined...the economy has been ruined," she said. "It's not an easy task to rebuild the entire state. When the house itself has been damaged and debris is strewn all around, it is not an easy task to rebuild the house."

During her campaign, Jayalalithaa referred repeatedly to the 2G scam, reminding voters with every speech and rally that it was embedded in the First Family of the DMK. Analysts agree that the scam has battered the party in the elections. One of its senior-most leaders, A Raja, is now in jail for allegedly masterminding the scam when he was Telecom Minister in 2008. Mr Karunanidhi's daughter, M Kanimozhi, has been accused of accepting a 214-crore bribe along with Mr Raja. Tomorrow, a court in Delhi will decide whether she should go to jail.

The impact of the 2G scam on the DMK will resonate loudly at the Centre - where a series of corruption scams have dented the credibility of the ruling UPA and its leader, the Congress party. The verdict of the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu sends a loud and clear message to politicians - corruption is public's Enemy No 1.

The DMK contested 119 seats with 63 allotted to its partner, the Congress. Together, they did not manage even 40 seats. The Congress says it does not regret sticking with the DMK to contest the elections together in Tamil Nadu. "We are loyal allies," said the Congress spokesperson, Jayanthi Natarajan.

But privately, the party is no doubt rewinding to an offer made by Jayalalithaa when Mr Raja was sent to jail. She said that if the Congress expelled the DMK and its 18 MPs from the central government, she would step in as a replacement. The Congress had refused the invitation.

The combination of the 2G scam and its demolition in today's election will give the DMK little to none leverage at the Centre - where it has, in the past, flexed its muscle repeatedly, relying on the weight lent by its 18 MPs. But the Congress, analysts say, will not be let off the hook by the DMK, which will drive home the message that the Congress may

Tsunami hits C.P.M - Mamatha Sweeps Bengal

Trinamool Congress Leader says "This is a Second freedom for Bengal"

A tsunami called Mamata has swept the longest-serving communist government in the country and smashed it to bits. The journey that started with a frail, young woman demolishing the giant Somnath in 1984 has reached its destination. Firing on all cylinders. In a time when no one even dared think of the possibility, Mamata Banerjee had shown that the CPM could be defeated in Bengal. This time, she has proven it can be vanquished.

Mamata dedicated the Trinamool victory to the people. "We will establish democracy, not patry-cracy. We will bring back the lost glory of Bengal. It is the victory of Ma, Mati, Manush. This is like the second freedom of Bengal," she said as hundreds cheered in front of her humble house in Kalighat.

Election 2011 turned out to be a one-sided match, and the winning captain wasn't even playing. The scoreline looked ridiculous. Like the sight of a bunch of gangly teen bikers, in expensive shades, thundering through narrow Alimuddin Street, shouting "Aye Buddha, dekhe ja, Mamatar khamata!"

The roar ripped into the CPM party office, which had fallen into a funereal silence. The Alimuddin Street apparatchik, far removed from reality, sat in isolated ones and twos, unable to comprehend Force Mamata. All their giants had toppled - Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Nirupam Sen, Asim Dasgupta, Gautam Deb... Buddha lost by 16,000 votes, Nirupam by 22,000.

Even Congress won more seats (42) than CPM (40).

Left Front chairman Biman Bose's first remark after the debacle showed just why the CPM deserved to lose. His manner was arrogant, his replies curt, even dismissive, and his entire take on the historic defeat was that the Left Front's "assessment had been wrong". It was way off the mark, in fact. Trinamool won single-party majority just five years after the Left had reduced it to 30 seats.

It nailed the end of 34 years of communist rule, and heralded a change from the stifling status quo.

The Trinamool landslide was indicative of public sentiment against the regimented party hegemony. CPM was utterly vanquished in most of its strongholds - West Midnapore, Bankura, Purulia and North Bengal - areas that shut their windows to the winds of change in 2009. It was clear that young and old had pressed the EVM buttons with an exasperated vengeance, consigning Buddhadeb's 'turnaround script' to the trash bin.

The Left Front scored zero in as many as four districts - Kolkata, Howrah, East Midnapore and Darjeeling - and did miserably in Hooghly, North 24-Parganas and South 24-Parganas.

Sensing the mood, chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee put in his papers at Raj Bhavan hours before his defeat from Jadavpur was formally declared. Surjyakanta Mishra, Abdur Rezzak Mollah and Susanta Ghosh are among the handful of CPM leaders to have made it to the assembly. In the evening, Mamata drove into Raj Bhavan - in the white SUV in which she had travelled thousands of miles, criss-crossing Bengal's remotest corners - to stake her claim to form the government.

It was another sight thought impossible even two years ago.

Only Buddhadeb had sensed the undercurrent. He made a desperate attempt to minimise the public disgust. He apologised frequently, promised amends. But he was overshadowed by his comrade Gautam Deb who went on the aggressive. It had little effect beyond the Left periphery and in fact backfired as Deb's theatrics helped consolidate the anti-Left votebank.

The Mamata tsunami swept everything in its way - the CPM poll machinery. Congress dissidents, the unpredictability of ethnic politics. Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Bangladesh president Sheikh Hasina rang up Mamata to congratulate her.

The 15-year-old journey - from Mamata's expulsion from the Congress to the Congress riding piggyback on her success to return to power - has not been a smooth one. There were occasions when this pathologically anti-CPM woman was thrown into splendid isolation, especially after the 2004 Lok Sabha polls and 2006 assembly election. Her detractors started calling her names. But Mamata didn't lose hope. She kept up with her defiance and reached out to the far-flung hamlets in Bengal, nursing the wounds of the victims of the CPM's terror, hugging those who had been cast out by the CPM hegemony, fighting a lonely battle for those who had no strength left.

So, when matters began getting dangerously out of hand during the land acquisition in Singur in 2006, even pro-Left farmers didn't have any inhibition in embracing Mamata Banerjee as the only credible ally against the mighty CPM. The gritty Mamata took up the challenge and started making the CPM bleed in its strongholds.

However, the challenges she faces now as head of a government are as daunting as the rough road to victory. First among them is to put an end to the bloodshed in the districts. Second, tackling the near-empty coffers she has inherited. Third, the Maoist threat in Jangalmahal and the Adivasis and Gorkha Janmukti Morcha in the Hills. It will help that all the members of Didi's 'dream Cabinet' - such as Amit Mitra, Manish Gupta, Bratya Basu and Partha Chatterjee - have been elected.

FBI warns against 'virus' Osama photos, videos on Internet

04 May 2011

Boston: With the internet abuzz with stories related to Osama bin Laden's death, the FBI is warning people not to open unsolicited links that 'purport' to show photos or videos of the al Qaeda leader's killing, saying these could be computer virus.

Asking computer users to exercise caution, the FBI said people should not open unsolicited spam e-mails that claim to show photos or download software to view videos of bin Laden's death, even if the messages are from people they know as these applications can infect computers and could be viruses programmed to steal personally identifiable information.

Such 'content could be a virus that could damage your computer.

This malicious software or malware can embed itself in computers and spread to users' contact lists, thereby infecting the systems of associates, friends, and family members,' the FBI said in a statement.

The Internet Crime Complaint Center urged computer users not to open spam mails, including by clicking links contained within those messages.

'The public should exercise due diligence.'

Links claiming to show footage of bin Laden being killed by US troops and photos of the dead terrorist are already doing rounds on popular social networking sites like Facebook.

Some links on Facebook claim that 'exclusive footage' that will 'leave you speechless' has been leaked by

'Wikileaks' and organisations like 'CNN', playing on users' curiosity to see the world's most wanted terrorist in his last moments.

Once a user clicks on the link, it is automatically pasted on the walls of all his contacts.

The FBI further asked computer owners to ensure they have up-to-date anti-virus software to detect and deflect malicious software, and to keep an eye for fraudulent messages that often feature misspellings, poor grammar and nonstandard English.

The agency also asked users to adjust the privacy settings on social networking sites to make it more difficult for people to post content to their page.

A photograph, released on the internet hours after US President Barack Obama announced to the world that bin Laden was dead, showed a brutally injured bin Laden with his eye gouged.

That photo had turned out to be a fake.

'Even a friend can unknowingly pass on multimedia that's actually malicious software,' the agency said, adding that criminals may also use the FBI's name and seal to add legitimacy to their fraudulent schemes.

Osama Bin Laden Killed

President Obama announced late Sunday that Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, was killed in a firefight during an operation he ordered Sunday inside Pakistan, ending a 10-year manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist. American officials were in possession of his body, he said.

“On nights like this one, ‘’ the president said, “we can say that justice has been done.’’

The fate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Al Qaeda number two in command, was unclear.

The death of Mr. Bin Laden is a defining moment in the American-led war on terrorism. What remains to be seen is whether the death of the leader of Al Qaeda galvanizes his followers by turning him into a martyr, or whether it serves as a turning of the page in the war in Afghanistan and gives further impetus to the Obama administration to bring American troops home.

President Obama said that on Sunday, a small team of U.S. operatives launched a “targeted assault’’ on a compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad where months of intelligence work had established that Mr. Bin Laden was living. Mr. Bin Laden was killed after a firefight, and the troops took custody of his body.

The killing ended a 10-year manhunt in which Mr. Bin Laden repeatedly eluded his pursuers, deeply frustrating the Bush administration and counterterrorism officials.

The news of the death of the leader of Al Qaeda electrified the world — crowds gathered outside the White House, cheering, as they waited for the president to confirm the news. Mr. bin Laden was able to elude capture by hiding out in the mountains of Afghanistan and elsewhere. He initially escaped from Tora Bora in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan after an American invasion routed the Taliban, his protectors.

Since then, he issued some 30 messages, in audio, video or electronic text, sometimes taunting, sometimes gloating, sometimes urging new terrorist attacks. Intelligence officials believe the messages were passed from hand to hand repeatedly to obscure any trail back to his hiding place. Even while in hiding, he remained a potent symbolic figure. And American officials believe, based on intercepted communications from second- and third-tier Qaeda operatives, that he also still helped shape Al Qaeda’s strategy.
