Can Rajkot International Airport offset coward turbulence for pilot 6th victory for BJP

The BJP is keeping an eye on Gujarat for the sixth consecutive term and hopes that Saurashtra International Airport, by the end of this year, will improve the chances of Prime Minister Narendra Modi returning to power in the home state.

Conceived as a development and export hub, the airport has been hailed as a game changer for the region, and the team hopes it will play the same role in Gujarat as Jawaharlal Nehru Airport in the Western Uttar Pradesh elections.

Drawing a parallel between the two airports, BJP good governance cell member Virendra Sachdeva, referring to the recent UP elections, said: In the same way, the airport will affect many seats in the region. “

Rajkot, known as the commercial capital of the Saurashtra region, could get its first major international airport by the end of this year, which will bring a large number of jobs to the region. The airport may be inaugurated during the state elections.

But could the airport be a game-changer in the home state assembly elections of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah?

“With a runway of 3,040 meters, equivalent to Mumbai or Delhi, the airport is ready to ensure better air connectivity with the Saurashtra region,” said Rajkot Collector Arun Mahesh Babu.

Unemployment is one of the major issues raised by the opposition before every Gujarat election. The upcoming international airport is ready to increase employment opportunities not only in the vicinity of Rajkot and Surendranagar, but also in about 12 districts of the Saurashtra region.

“There are going to be a lot of collaborative activities for everything from ground staff to local businesses, from food and beverages to transportation. The locals will be given vocational training and development, ”said an official.

BJP’s vote performance in Saurashtra

In the 2017 Gujarat Assembly elections, out of 54 seats across 12 districts of Saurashtra region, 31 were won by BJP and 21 went to Congress.

Kutch has six seats, five of which went to the BJP. Surendranagar has five assembly seats, three of which went to the BJP. In Morbi, two of the three seats went to the Congress, where the BJP could get only one seat.

Rajkot has given seven out of eight seats to BJP. In Jamnagar, the BJP got three out of five seats and in Dwarka got one duck. In Porbandar, one of the two was given to BJP. In Junagadh, the BJP got two seats in the Siv. In Gir Somnath, the party has lost four seats. Amreli got one of the five seats in the district, while Bhavnagar compensated the BJP with six of the seven seats. BJP got two seats in Botad.

The party hopes to do better in the region this time around, with jobs created at the airport and the economy recovering from the Covid-19 epidemic and neutralizing any anti-incumbency factor, a senior party leader said. .

Rajkot is the fourth largest city in Gujarat, known as the center of manufacturing industry like watch parts and silk embroidery. The ceramic industry of Morbi and other industries of Jamnagar are heavily dependent on air communication.

The existing airport is in the heart of the city, but it is not able to offer flights larger than the Airbus 320 and Boeing 737-800. The new airport is located on the Ahmedabad-Rajkot highway and has an estimated budget of Rs 1,405 crore. It will cover a total area of ​​1,032 hectares and will have a runway length of 3,049 meters for large planes. The airport is scheduled to be completed by August-September 2022.

The reaction of the parties after Amit Shah’s ‘Good News’ in Chandigarh

Political parties in Punjab hit the central government after Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced that the terms of service for Chandigarh administration employees would be linked to central civic services.

Opposition parties, including the AAP, Punjab’s ruling party and the Congress and the Akali Dal, have accused the Centre’s move of undermining Punjab’s claim to Chandigarh and against the spirit of federalism.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia scoffed at the BJP, saying they were scared to see the “rising footprints” of the AAP. Sisodia said Shah did not seize power in Chandigarh when the Congress was ruling in Punjab. But soon after the formation of the AAP. In the Punjab government, the home minister announced the move because “the BJP is afraid to increase the footprint of the AAP”, he said.

Earlier in Chandigarh, Amit Shah had said that the terms of service for the employees of the Union Territory of Chandigarh would now be integrated with the Central Citizen Services and this would benefit them “in a big way”.

Shah announced that the retirement age for workers in the Union Territory would now be 58 to 60 years, adding that female employees would now receive one to two years of childcare leave.

The AAP had earlier accused the Center of trying to control bureaucrats in Delhi, where it is in power. The matter is pending in the Supreme Court.

Shiromani Akali Dal leader Daljit Singh Cheema termed the move as a violation of the spirit of Punjab Reconstruction Act and denial of state capital rights.

Daljit Singh Chima said, “The decision of the MOH (Home Ministry) to impose rules of the Central Government on the employees of Chandigarh is a violation of the spirit of the Punjab Reorganization (Reorganization) Act and must be reconsidered.”

“It means rejecting the capital of Punjab forever. After the change in BBMB (Vakra Beas Management Board) rules, it is another big push for the rights of Punjab, ”he added in another tweet.

“Chandigarh is the (general) capital of Punjab and ad hoc arrangements were made for UT. Sixty per cent of the employees were from Punjab and the rest from Haryana. The Centre’s decision was taken autocratically and without consulting the Punjab state, “Cheema later told the media.” Today’s decision is a conspiracy to weaken Punjab’s claim on Chandigarh. We oppose it, “he said, adding that” the decision is against the spirit of federalism. “

Congress has also condemned the Centre’s move, calling it a direct attack on federalism. “We strongly condemn the BJP’s dictatorial decision to deprive Punjab of control of Chandigarh. It belongs to Punjab and this unilateral decision is not only a direct attack on federalism but also an attack on Punjab’s 60 per cent control in UT, ”said Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira.

Khaira added, “I would like to remind the BJP that Chandigarh is a disputed area where Punjab’s claim has been justified by the Rajiv-Longowal Accord … it is a fraud and no less than the government”. Shah also touched on the work of the center. He said the incidence of Naxals and terrorism had come down drastically in the last seven years to strengthen the country’s internal security and during the BJP-led government.

However, Home Ministry sources said that Amit Shah only talked about getting central benefits for Chandigarh UT employees and added that it does not affect the power of Punjab in any way.

Sahni is a member of the Legislative Assembly from one seat, whose term expires in July this year Since Sahni lost his assembly seat, the BJP has helped him get elected from the vacated seat of one of his own members.

The drama unfolded when Sahni’s VIP not only contested the UP elections against the BJP but also campaigned loudly against the party.

In the latest ‘pro-people’ move, Bhagwant Mann calls the Kejriwal model of Punjab,

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Monday announced that his government was ready to start distribution of rations on the doorstep, calling it an addition to the “for the people” initiative taken by his government.

In a video message, Mann said the rich could order things comfortably in their homes, while the poor had to wait in long lines to get their rations, often forced to give up their day jobs. Also, elderly women have to walk a few kilometers to get rations from the depot, he said.

The standard adds that often, the dry rations given to the poor (as part of a food for all project) are substandard and unsuitable for human consumption. “But poor people have no choice but to eat it. However, now the Aam Aadmi Party is ready to change that. Good quality rations will be packed in clean quality bags and delivered to the doorstep. Officers will call the beneficiaries, check their availability and then come and deliver the rations, ”he said, adding that the beneficiaries have optional delivery at the door or take their grain from the ration depot.

The Chief Minister has asked the people to report to the government if they get less grain or their quality is unsatisfactory. He added that although party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced a similar plan for Delhi, it was “stopped by the forces that wanted people to stand in the snake line”.

There are 1.42 lakh beneficiaries in Punjab under the National Food Security Act. Wheat is supplied twice a year for six months at Rs 5 per kg per beneficiary per month.

Once the Punjab government implements the policy of delivering rations to the people, citizens of other states will also start “demanding” it, Kejriwal said on Monday. In a virtual briefing, he further alleged that the BJP-led central government had tried to “obstruct” the implementation of the policy in the national capital. “Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has today made a great announcement that rations will be delivered to the doorsteps of the people and it will benefit the poor a lot,” he said.

“We are trying to implement it in Delhi too, but the BJP government at the Center is trying to block the implementation of this policy in Delhi,” he complained. Kejriwal emphasized that the idea was, in fact, “impossible”.

Earlier, after taking over as chief minister, Mann launched an anti-corruption helpline, announced jobs for 35,000 contract workers and recently slashed multiple pensions paid to Punjab legislators.
