One of the high-profile cases in Punjab is that of Senior Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia, who was put behind bars by the then Congress government. Majithia was alleged to be involved with drug smugglers. Akali leader and former minister Bikram Singh Majithia got a big relief from the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday. The High Court has granted his regular bail. Majithia is currently lodged in Patiala Jail under the NDPS Act. Majithia’s lawyer will reach Mohali district court. Here he will fill out the bail bond. After this, the SAD leader will be released from jail on bail. Majithia’s lawyers have left for court.

On July 29, the High Court reserved the decision.

On July 29, the Punjab and Haryana High Court reserved the verdict after hearing all the parties. Earlier on July 22, on Majithia’s plea, the Punjab government had said that senior advocates from Delhi would appear for the government’s representation. In such a situation, the government should be given some time. At the request of the government, the High Court adjourned the hearing on the petition till July 29.

Majithia’s petition had reached a division bench of Justice MS Ramachandra Rao and Justice Sureshwar Thakur for hearing. Earlier, two benches of the High Court refused to hear Majithia’s petition. Earlier, Justice AG Masih, recusing himself from the case, sent it to the Chief Justice for hearing before another bench.

Interestingly, it is pertinent to mention that, as per the lawyer Arshdeep Singh Kler, the bench based on Justice Masih had completed the debate on this petition and had also reserved its decision on Majithia’s bail. After this, the petition came up for hearing in the division bench of Justice MS Ramachandra Rao and Justice Anoop Chitkara. On July 15, Justice Anoop Chitkara recused himself from the case. After this, under the direction of the Chief Justice, this petition was heard by a division bench of Justice MS Ramachandra Rao and Justice Sureshwar Thakur.

Kler further mentioned, “Truth cannot be kept hidden for long. The High Court has granted bail in the false document filed during the Congress government. “

An FIR was registered against Bikram Singh Majithia in Mohali under the NDPS Act on December 20 last year during the tenure of Charanjit Singh Channi. After this, the Supreme Court stayed Majithia’s arrest till he contested the elections and gave him great relief. After voting, Majithia surrendered in a Mohali court on February 24. After this, he was sent to Patiala Jail. Bikram Singh Majithia lost the election from Amritsar East when the election results came in on March 10 March. He is currently lodged in Patiala Jail.CONGRESS RAISES QUESTIONS ON MAJITHIA’S BAIL

NEW DELHI: Politics over the bail of Bikram Singh Majithia has started. Indian Youth Congress Punjab President Brinder Dhillon questioned the AAP government in Punjab. Dhillon alleges that Majithia was convicted under serious charges and it’s the AAP who didn’t present the case well in the Hon’ble High Court.

“I want to ask some straight questions to the AAP government. Your case was not strong enough in court, or do you think Bikram Majithia is innocent?” asked Barinder Dhillon. On the other hand, Punjab BJP leader Harjeet Singh Garewal welcomed the decision of the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Bikram Singh Majithia’s case. Grewal said, “I believe that Bikram will come out clean from the jail.” “He played the role of a good citizen when he was accused in the drugs case. He didn’t run away and faced judicial proceedings. I believe that Bikram will come out clean from jail”, Hardeep Grewal said.

Rajashthan CM Gehlot sides with Mallikarjun amid Congress President poll




On October 2, 2022, Rajasthan’s Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot, stated that veteran party leader Mallikarjun Kharge has the expertise to improve the Congress and will win the party’s presidential election handily, while opponent Shashi Tharoor is an “elite class” member.

“Kharge has a long political experience. He has a clean heart, he comsdses from the Dalit community and (Kharge contesting the election) is being welcomed everywhere,” he told reporters after paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at the secretariat in Jaipur.

Gehlot, one of the proposers for Kharge, claimed that although Tharoor is a good man and has good ideas, he belongs to the elite class.

“Tharoor is a class apart; he is from the elite class but the kind of experience that is needed to strengthen the party at booth, block, and district levels, that is with Kharge and cannot be compared to Shashi Tharoor. Therefore, it will naturally be a one-sided contest for Kharge,” he said.

For the position of Congress president, Mr. Kharge and Mr. Tharoor are squarely in opposition.

Mr. Kharge, a Karnataka-born Dalit leader, is now the overwhelming favourite to become Congress’ president.

According to sources, Mr. Kharge has resigned as the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha.

Pune bridge demolished by controlled explosion



Pune bridge demolished

A controlled implosion was used to destroy an ancient bridge built in the early 1990s in the Chandani Chowk neighbourhood of Pune, according to officials.

In the Chandani Chowk neighbourhood of the city, the bridge across the Mumbai-Bengaluru Highway (NH4) was destroyed at about 1 in the morning on Sunday.

After the demolition, a number of trucks and earthmover machines were put to use to bring down the hanging structures and lift the material away.

The planned demolition of the bridge generated a great deal of curiosity among the local people.

The bridge was demolished as part of a large-scale development project at Chandni Chowk that aims to improve the flow of traffic at the crucial intersection. The crossroads will eventually get a multi-level flyover, and work is already being done to that end.

The locals were extremely curious about the proposed removal of the bridge.

“The bridge was demolished at 1 am on Sunday through a controlled blast and everything was executed as per the plan. Now, we have pressed earthmover machines, forknails, and trucks to clear the debris from the spot,” said Chirag Chheda, co-owner of Edifice Engineering.

The bridge was demolished by a team from Edifice Engineering and NHAI officials. According to officials, this is the same business that destroyed the Supertech Twin Towers in Noida during the latter week of August of this year.

Due to the incident, all vehicular traffic in the region was stopped and rerouted.

When asked why some of the bridge’s support columns did not entirely collapse, one of Edifice’s chief engineers replied that the bomb had destroyed the concrete, leaving just the steel bars.

“Once the steel bars are removed using the machines, the remaining structure will also come down,” he said.

He continued by saying that more steel was used in building the bridge than they had anticipated.

Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, inspected the ongoing bridge construction at Chandani Chowk from the air on Friday.

UK minister plans to change immigration policy




Suella Braverman, the country’s new interior minister who is of Indian descent, stated in an interview with The Sun on Sunday that the Liz Truss government in the UK hopes to keep its promise made during the 2019 election campaign to reduce net migration.

Braverman stated that Britain has a high number of low-skilled migrants and a large number of international students adding that the students more often brought dependents with them to UK thereby affecting the country’s growth.

“What we’ve got is too many low skilled workers coming into this country. We’ve also got a very high number of students coming into this country and we’ve got a really high number of dependents,” the interior minister said.

Suella Braverman continued, saying that the UK government will limit migration and reassess immigration policy because “those individuals are coming here, they’re not necessarily working or they’re working in low-skilled positions, and they’re not contributing to building our economy.”

In the year ending June 2021, net migration to the UK was 239,000, according to the UK’s office for national statistics. There have been more non-EU workers, particularly those from India, while there are fewer European Union workers in the UK as a result of Brexit. Therefore, a decrease in net migration to the UK may have an impact on Indian immigrants and students who want to study there.

In line with Suella Braverman’s remarks, the Guardian reported earlier this week that Liz Truss would alter immigration laws to address the serious labour shortage in the nation.
