honour was bestowed upon the three Armoured regiments in due recognition of the dedicated and meritorious service rendered by them since raising more than three decades back Give it to Arvind Kejriwal The chattering may have reduced him to a subject of ridicule but his name still resonates well among the masses Forget the negative newsheadlines and all the controversies his party members land almost on a daily basis he is still considered the man to look up to by people disillusioned with run-of-the mill politicians That explains the massive attendance in his rallies in poll-bound Punjab That also perhaps explains why the ruling party would issue an order keeping thousands of buses off the roads on the day of his scheduled farmers’ rally in Moga The writing on the wall is clear for the ruling Akali Dal Its chances of returning to power are bleak if it does not handle the challenge from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) effectively The latter is still an unknown quantityin the state’s politics in terms of its potential to challenge established parties but the surge in popular support for Kejriwal makes it look like a positive threat The Akali Dal would have found it much easier if the Congress were the main rival in February 2017 Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal AFP The AAP has been in a minor crisis of late after it showed party’s convenor Sucha Singh Chhotepur the door and it failed to reach an arrangement with Navjot Singh Sidhu after long negotiation While Naresh Yadav party’s MLA from Delhi has been arrested by the Punjab police for allegedly desecrating the Quran the party’s popular local MP Bhagwant Mann has been in trouble for video shooting his travel toParliament and allegedly showing up drunk at rallies All rivals small or big some in alliance and some independent now consider the AAP the enemy number one in the state It’s a curious all vs AAP situation in Punjab Considering the party is a newbie in the Assembly elections it is an enviable situation to be in Kejriwal aware of his unique situation is leaving nothing to chance After the Delhi results he is aware that he would be the central figure in the elections The elections would be a referendum of sorts on him the person as it was the case with Narendra Modi in the 2014 general elections People would vote for him others don’t matter The likes of Sidhu maybe popular in small pockets and high profile on television but they lack the pan-Punjab appeal which Kejriwal despite being an outsider does not In a way as the popular response suggests all the political attacks on Kejriwal are going in his favour He is good at wearing victimhood on his sleeves he can do it in Punjab easily Thus when he tweets “Badals scared Trying every dirty trick” in connection with grounding of private buses for inspection it is likely to make the halo of victimhood bigger Badals scared Trying every dirty trick https://tco/wVYzPD7puo — Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) September 10 2016 Given the political situation in the state the farmers at the rally are more likely to believe him than the Badals However all this does not mean to assert that the AAP is headed for a cakewalk in Punjab In one of his rallies a few months back Kejriwal claimed his party would win 110 of the 117 seats in the state The ground situation particularly on the organisational front does not reflect that sense of optimism Yet the chances of the party emerging as the first among equals look bright Some seats even many seats less would still mean that Kejriwal’s party has arrived as a political force And the man himself might have lost some of his lustre but he is no pushover yet Written by Gopal B Kateshiya | Rajkot | Updated: February 3 2016 5:41 am Top News A MAGISTERIAL court in Dhoraji town of Rajkot district acquitted BJP MP Vitthal Radadiya and Patidar quota stir leader Lalit Vasoya last month in the 1998 criminal case of alleged violation of poll code for want of evidence However the acquittal came in the face of prosecutor failing to argue the case despite repeated reminders by the magistrate Additional chief judicial magistrate of Dhoraji Mittalkumar Nadpara found sitting BJP MP from Porbandar Radadiya and Vasoya the Saurashtra region convenor of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) not guilty in his verdict delivered on January 12 “The accused in the case are hereby acquitted from the charges of IPC Section 188 and BPA Section 135 for want of evidence and ordered to be set free under Section 255 (1) of CrPC The bail bonds submitted by the accused earlier are also

meeting in Supedi village of Dhoraji taluka past 10 pm Radadiya was fighting Assembly election from Dhoraji as a candidate of Rashtriya Janta Party floated by former chief minister Shankersinh Vaghela Police stated that Radadiya’s meeting continued past 10 pm and thus violated the notification of district magistrate The chargesheet in the case was filed in July 1998 The trial of the case began in 2006 and meandered for years But the case was taken up on priority basis after Home Ministry asked states in 2014 to fast-track cases against MPs and MLAs on the directive of the Supreme Court Therefore the Dhoraji court recorded further statement of the accused in August 2015 and posted the matter for oral arguments However Dinesh Panchal in-charge assistant public prosecutor (APP) of Dhoraji failed to keep dates of hearing despite being intimated repeatedly Finally the court sent a notice to Panchal on December 18 2015 asking him to remain present for arguing the case on January 1 this year But Panchal failed to turn up As a result the court granted defence plea to go ahead with the argument of the case and conclude the trial as it was not a contested matter Radadiya’s lawyers Amin Navliwala Hasmukh Malvi and Dipak Vaishnav argued that he was innocent and cross-examined eight defence witnesses in absence of the APP “From the prosecution side in-charge APP did not remain present and therefore had foregone the right to argue the case” the magistrate noted in the judgment The Indian Express has a copy of the verdict In fact the APP claimed that he did not know about the verdict until The Indian Express contacted him on Tuesday “I admit I don’t know if the judgment has been delivered I am learning from you that the accused have been acquitted I had appeared in the Dhoraji court on a few dates but have missed them of late I am appearing in five courts in Jetpur the place of my posting Plus I am holding charge of Dhoraji Upleta and Jamkandorana I did receive
