Rahul says Cong govt will listen people’s ‘maan ki baat’

first_imgSimdega (Jharkhand): Congress president Rahul Gandhi Thursday reminded people that neither Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor any other political leaders were their “maalik” (masters) rather they are the lords in democracy, asking them to tell his party’s government what to do and it will be done. He described mahagathbandhan of opposition parties as “voice of the people” and said he has not come to speak their maan ki baat but to listen to them. The “maan ki baat” was a montly radio programme of prime minister Narendra Modi as part of which he used to share his thoughts on different subjects with the countrymen. The Congress chief was addressing an election rally in Simdega, which is a part of Khunti Lok Sabha constituency where voting will take place on May 6. Speaking about NYAY scheme, Congress key electoral agenda, Gandhi said if voted to power, Rs 72,000 would be deposited in bank accounts of 5 crore people of the country within one year under it. The amount will be given under the NYAY scheme till a family earns Rs 12,000 per month on its own, he said. “This alliance (Mahagathbandhan) is the voice of people. I have not come to speak our maan ki baat but to listen to your maan ki baat and whatever you will tell us we will do it, Gandhi said. Dont forget that you are maalik (master). Narendra Modi or any political leader are not your maalik. You just tell us what to do and we will do, Gandhi said. The Congress chief made a blistering attack on Modi blaming him for working only for 15-20 people. Narendra Modi ji has not fulfilled his promises of providing two crore jobs. He did not deposit Rs 15 lakh in bank accounts of the people, Gandhi said. He (PM) only worked for 15-20 people, Gandhi said, apparently referring to industrialists. Appealing to the people to vote for Congress and Mahagathbandhan candidate Kalicharan Munda from Khunti, Gandhi further attacked Modi for not waiving farm loans while (the MSP) Rs 2500 is being given for rice in Chhattisgarh ruled by the Congress. Munda is facing BJPs Arjun Munda from Khunti LS seat. Munda, who is a former chief minister, had earlier won Jamshedpur Lok Sabha seat in a previous election. The Congress chief said the poor were hit by the GST and asserted that the Congress was committed to save tribal land. Unveiling his party’s future plans for Jharkhand, which was carved out of Bihar in 2000, he said free treatment in hospitals would be introduced and universities and technical institutions will be set up in districts if voted to power. Alleging that the Narendra Modi government had put Rs 5.55 lakh crore in the pockets of 15/20 industrialists, Gandhi said that if the Congress alliance came to power such things would not happen, rather the money would be taken out from the pockets of these people and would be used for the welfare of the poor. Stating the alliance government will protect jal, jungle, jameen (water, forest and land), he said it was the Congress which returned land if industry was not set up on the allotted land. He also cited an example how land was taken away from a private company and returned to tribals. Gandhi claimed that GST and demonetisation had hit hard on trade. This was Congress chief’s first visit to Jharkhand after the election notification was issued on March 10. He had visited Ranchi on March 2. Former chief minister Babulal Marandi and JMMs working president and ex-CM Hemant Soren also addressed the rally. The Mahagathbandhan in Jharkhand comprises the Congress, JMM, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik-JVM) of Marandi and the RJD. The Congress is contesting seven Lok Sabha seats, JMM has fielded candidates at four places while JVM is fighting on two seats and the RJD has been given one seat as per seat-sharing arrangement of the alliance. While the first phase for Lohardaga (ST), Chatra and Palamu (SC) concluded on April 29, the second phase (ECs fifth phase) for Koderma, Khunti, Ranchi and Hazaribagh is scheduled on May 6.last_img read more

Ohio State footballs special teams lays ground work for road upset of

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — While much attention will be given to Daniel “Boom” Herron and the OSU rushing attack after Ohio State’s 17-7 win over No. 16 Illinois, credit also belongs to the Buckeyes’ special teams. Head coach Luke Fickell said after the game that he knew two of the key aspects of the game would be the rushing game and field position. “Obviously, the field position was a big part of special teams,” Fickell said. “When you come here (to Illinois), you know you’re going to get some kind of weather condition.” On the Buckeyes’ first drive of the game, the OSU coaches ordered up a shot at a 43-yard field goal going into the wind, which sophomore kicker Drew Basil converted for his eighth straight field goal this season. “Going into the game, we had a certain distance that we would take a (field goal) shot at,” Fickell said. “It was a little beyond where we said we wanted to take a shot, but we thought with how (the wind) was twisting, we’d take a shot.” Junior punter Ben Buchanan, one of the top punters in the nation, booted another seven punts in the game including a 54-yarder. Buchanan also had two punts that pinned the Illini inside their own 20-yard line. Buchanan leads the Big Ten with 17 punts inside the 20-yard line. In coverage, the Buckeyes allowed just 11 yards per kick return and -1 yards per punt return. Junior defensive lineman John Simon called the OSU special teams “tremendous.” “The punt is the most important play in football,” Simon said. “Our guys take so much pride in special teams. I’ve never been on a team that has so much pride in what they do, and they do a great job for us.” Redshirt junior tight end Jake Stoneburner, the recipient of the only pass completion of the game, said the win was a culmination of a total team effort. “We just needed a full team game; we’ve been lacking that the whole year,” Stoneburner said. “So, for … the special teams to play like they did and for us to come out and score points, that was a great feeling.” OSU (4-3, 1-2) continues Big Ten Leaders Division play against the Wisconsin Badgers (6-0, 2-0) Oct. 29 at 8 p.m. at Ohio Stadium. read more

Ohio State baseball wins in walkoff fashion takes down Penn State 76

The OSU baseball team celebrates a walk-off win on April 5 at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU defeated Penn State, 7-6.Matt Wilkes / Lantern photographerThere’s no place like home.Dorothy might have said it in “The Wizard of Oz,” but that’s been the theme for the Ohio State baseball team throughout the month of March, and now into the first week of April. That stretch has seen the Buckeyes win 12 of their last 14 games at Bill Davis Stadium, and the run continued through the weekend.In a back and forth battle, OSU beat the Penn State Nittany Lions in walk-off fashion Sunday afternoon, giving the Buckeyes their fifth walk-off win of the year.After struggling in the batters box for five at bats, sophomore outfielder Troy Montgomery dug in again with a runner on base. The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions were tied, but Montgomery got the hit when it counted most, smashing a double to right field that allowed freshman outfielder Tre’ Gantt, who had come in as a pinch runner, to score, giving the Buckeyes (21-7, 6-2) the 7-6 win.“When you have a chance to win a ballgame, you have to win a ballgame,” OSU coach Greg Beals said. “This is a series where we need to take care of business, to play good baseball.”Getting runs and coming up with big hits in crucial moments has become a trend for the Buckeyes, and redshirt-junior second baseman Nick Sergakis attributed that to the team’s resiliency.“We are overall a scrappy team, top to bottom,” Sergakis said. “We fight till the last out is made and I think that’s the biggest difference between this year and last year.“We remember last year. It’s good to go out there and when we need it, we get the hits. It’s good to know we have that ability.”OSU struggled to put any runs on the board until the bottom of the third, when senior catcher Connor Sabanosh stepped to the plate. Sabanosh continued his dominance at the batters box with the first home run of his OSU career.The catcher has impressed with a .426 slugging percentage and a .373 on-base percentage. He has also recorded six doubles this season to go along with his career-high 14 RBIs.The Buckeyes also hit back-to-back home runs for the first time since 2011 this weekend, as senior outfielder Pat Porter and junior third baseman Troy Kuhn slammed back-to-back homers in sixth inning to give OSU a two-run lead going into the seventh.“These guys just continue (to) battle, we have two outs, nobody on and we just barrel two balls and Porter and Kuhn get two big hits to get us back in the lead,” Beals said.After hitting 23 total home runs last season, OSU is on track to surpass that with 20 home runs so far in 2015. The Buckeyes swatted a total of four home runs this weekend with sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson tallying the lone homer in Saturday’s 7-1 win over the Nittany Lions.“We have confidence, there’s no doubt about that. I think that ability to win, our guys feel that,” Beals said. “Winning is a learned thing and our guys have that right now. They feel like they can get hits and find ways to win games.”The Buckeyes are set to complete their third Big Ten series on Monday at 1:05 p.m. against the Nittany Lions at Bill Davis Stadium. read more
