  • "Lt Governor Anil Baijal on Tuesday dissolved the Sixth Legislative Assembly of the National Capital Territory of Delhi with effect from February 11," the official said, as counting of votes in the Assembly election is underway.

    Whether one likes it or not, Congress is still the only truly national party apart from BJP.

    The elections in the national capital took place in the midst of massive protests in the city and elsewhere over the new citizenship law, the National Register of Citizens and the National Population Register. The BJP faced charges of carrying out a "divisive" campaign to polarise the voters by consistently highlighting the over 50-day demonstration by a group of women in Shaheen Bagh area.

    The House, which could not transact any business on Monday due to opposition uproar over the Delhi violence, witnessed disruptions again. Trouble broke out when Anurag Thakur, who has been under opposition attack over his alleged hate speech during the poll campaign for the Delhi assembly polls, was called to lay listed papers pertaining to his Finance Ministry on the table.

    At the press conference, he was asked to comment on the alleged hate speeches made by him and other BJP leaders in the run-up to the Delhi elections and how such vitriolic speeches led to the riots in the city.

    Amid reports of differences with Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday said he met party chief Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra here and got a "patient hearing".

    The "Kejriwal ka Guarantee Card" (Kejriwal's guarantee card) contains 10 "guarantees", including a promise to reduce Delhi's air pollution by three times. The chief minister also informed that a three-day session of the Delhi Legislative Assembly will commence on February 24. Kejriwal also met Union Home Minister Amit Shah at the latter's residence.

    "The AAP's massive membership drive will be launched from Lucknow on February 23 and continue till March 23 where people can become members of the party by physically reaching out to our offices and getting receipts, by giving missed calls or by enrolling through our website," Sanjay Singh, a Rajya Sabha member and AAP's UP unit incharge, said.

    "Congress president has accepted the resignation of P C Chacko, AICC in-charge of Delhi and Subhash Chopra, president Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee with immediate effect," a party communication said.

    After a steady start, polling for Delhi assembly elections picked up the pace at about afternoon, as residents of Delhi including CM Arvind ...

    Replying to a notice served by the EC to seek clarification over his remarks, the BJP leader denied the allegations levelled against him and said that he had never cast "vitriolic aspersions" against Kejriwal. He had said the video did not reflect the "correct picture".

    A week before the Delhi assembly polls, Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday launched BJP’s vision document called Sankalp Patra here. For the first time, the party has announced that it would give aata (wheat flour) to poor families at Rs 2 per kg if it comes to power.
