Rift in Rajasthan Congress over merger of BSP MLAs

first_imgAmid speculations about a Cabinet reshuffle in Rajasthan after the merger of six BSP MLAs with the Congress, signs of rift and discontent have emerged in the ruling party. The infighting may create difficulties for the Congress which is preparing for the municipal elections due in November and planning to launch a membership drive in the State.The BSP MLAs’ defection to the Congress, just when reports of the Bharatiya Janta Party trying to lure them in a bid to repeat a Karnataka-type upheaval in Rajasthan had started appearing, has been perceived in political circles here as a “masterstroke” of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Senior BJP leaders in the State were left bewildered by the move.The merger has taken the Congress’s tally from 100 to 106 in the 200-member State Assembly, resulting in a setback to the BJP rather than the BSP. While affirming that the BSP was not in a position to form the government, Mr. Gehlot said here over the weekend that he was told that the BJP was offering up to ₹25 crore each to the Assembly members for switching sides.‘Will affect morale’Though the Congress members are happy that Mr. Gehlot has nipped the BJP’s game plan in the bud, some of them feel that elevating the newly inducted BSP MLAs to the ministerial rank would affect the morale of party workers. The voices of dissent emerged at a meeting of Pradesh Congress Committee here on Friday.Former Minister and PCC vice-president Laxman Singh Rawat said rewarding the BSP MLAs with ministerial posts and other plum assignments would demotivate Congress MLAs and workers. He affirmed that appointing first-time winners as Ministers would send across a wrong message in the party’s rank and file.Though Mr. Gehot has insisted that the six BSP MLAs had joined the Congress on their own for ensuring the government’s stability, the merger was a replay of the 2009 events when six BSP MLAs had defected to the Congress which was five short of a clear majority in the House. Half of them were made Ministers and others were appointed Paliamentary Secretaries.Though Deputy CM Sachin Pilot, who is also the PCC president, has defended the latest political developments, his recent utterances calling for “more attention” to the law and order situation have been seen as criticism of the Home Ministry, which is headed by Mr. Gehlot.last_img read more

In Response to Browns Players Anthem Protest Cleveland Unions

Unions representing Cleveland police and paramedics say they won’t hold a large American flag before the Cleveland Browns’ season opener because of previous player protests during the national anthem. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane, file)CLEVELAND (AP) — Members of unions representing Cleveland police officers and paramedics have said they won’t hold a large U.S. flag during pregame ceremonies prior to next Sunday’s Cleveland Browns season opener after a group of Browns players knelt during the national anthem before a preseason game last month.Steve Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, cited his service in the U.S. Navy when he told WKYC-TV he was astounded that Browns management knew of the protests but allowed it to occur.“I am not going to participate or work with management that allows their players to disrespect the flag and the national anthem,” Loomis said.Nearly a dozen Browns players knelt in a circle and prayed in silent protest during the anthem before a preseason home game Aug. 21 against the New York Giants. A smaller group of players placed hands on the shoulders of their kneeling teammates.A team spokesman issued a statement at halftime that said the organization has a “profound respect” for the national anthem, the U.S. flag and those who serve in the military.“We feel it’s important for our team to join in this great tradition and special moment of recognition. At the same time, we also respect the great liberties afforded by our country, including the freedom of personal expression,” the statement said.Dan Nemeth, president of the Cleveland Association of Rescue Employees Local 1975, said he had a similar reaction to Loomis’. He told Cleveland.com he served in the U.S. Marine Corps and finds it “hypocritical” for Browns management to say they support the military while allowing players to kneel during the anthem.“When I was growing up, we were taught to stand every morning, put our hands over our hearts and say the Pledge of Allegiance,” Nemeth said. “And when we did that, we typically had someone holding the flag in front of the class. For them to disrespect the flag by taking a knee did not sit well with me.”About 30 Browns players stood arm-to-arm in a line behind the rest of the team during the national anthem before an Aug. 26 preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.A veterans group outside Strongsville said last week that it would not show Browns games because of the player protests.The Browns’ protests are part of a social-consciousness movement started last season by then-quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who became a polarizing figure for kneeling during the anthem. read more
