Published

Today, the official Twitter account of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) accused the TMC of sending its goons in order to attack ABVP’s office in Kolkata. This alleged attack comes in the aftermath of the 2021 West Bengal elections which were swept by the TMC. Many incidents of violence by TMC workers have been recorded in the aftermath of the Bengal elections.

“Since ABVP calls out the politics of hate by Mamata Banerjee & her minions, TMC goons resorted to violence and vandalized @ABVPBanga Office. After coming back to power, this is how TMC goons plan to curb dissent,” wrote the official ABVP account on Twitter.

ABVP further alleges that more than 20 goons from TMC stormed into the ABVP Office, attacking ABVP workers including the National Joint Secretary of ABVP. The TMC workers are said to have vandalized several idols of deities and thought leaders alike.

ABVP also accuses the TMC of preplanning this attack, saying, “After TMC’s victory yesterday, more than 150 bikes of TMC goons were circling around ABVP office several times. This makes us believe today’s attack was preplanned and is only a glimpse of what next five years hold in store for people who oppose Mamata Banerjee and her politics.”

The news of this attack has also been reported by Organizer, an affiliated publication of ABVP’s parent body, the RSS.

ABVP Banga, the verified Twitter account of ABVP also confirmed the news of the attack, writing that TMC goons attacked ABVP’s South Bengal Officer. Around 12:45 PM today, 10-12 TMC goons charged in to attack the ABVP office.

An official press note from ABVP about the attack has been released. According to this press note, 15-20 TMC goons attacked the ABVP office around 1 PM for up to 20 minutes. During this time period, the TMC goons attacked many different ABVP workers, including top leaders present in the building. Moreover, the TMC goons also vandalized the idols of Maa Kaali and Lord Hanuman, thereby desecrating them. Additionally the TMC goons also repeatedly kicked the portraits of eminent Bengali personalities like Ravindranath Tagore, Syama Prasad Mukherjee, Subhash Chandra Bose, etc.

Our prominent activists are safe after the violent attack on the ABVP office by Trinamool goons, but this kind of violent behavior shown by the Chief Minister and her goons ever since the result of the assembly elections is highly reprehensible," said Nidhi Tripathi, National General Secretary of ABVP.

In times to come, we have to keep the torch of nationalism alive by remaining united and keeping our security in mind. Mamta and her goons have given an example of how the situation is going to be in Bengal in the future, therefore we have to be ready for a long struggle.” Ms. Tripathi added.

West Bengal is currently going through a violent wave of celebration from TMC goons after the clear victory for TMC in the 2021 Bengal elections. This violent wave has forced Mamata Banerjee to comment, blaming the BJP and Central forces in her trademark style.

“I appeal to everyone to maintain peace and not indulge in any violence. We know BJP and Central Forces have tortured us a lot but we have to maintain peace. At present, we have fight COVID19”, said Mamata Banerjee, newly elected third-time Chief Minister of West Bengal.

Karnataka Temporarily Suspends Vaccination For 18-44 Age Group, Will Prioritise Second Dose

Published

on

Owing to the short supply of Covid vaccines, Karnataka on Wednesday decided to ‘temporarily suspend’ vaccination drive for those aged between 18 to 44 years.

In a series of tweets, the Karnataka Health department said that the state government has decided that the vaccine procured directly by the state government for vaccination of persons between 18 and 44 years too will be utilised for vaccination of beneficiaries who are due for the second dose.

“Therefore, all vaccines available with the state government i.e. supplied by union government and procured directly by state will be utilized for vaccination of beneficiaries due for second dose,” the Karnataka health department tweet explained.

The Health department added that vaccination drives for the 18 to 44 age group, including those who have already booked appointments will be temporarily suspended from May 14 till further orders.

According to the health department, the state government on May 7 had decided to utilise the complete supply of vaccines provided by the union government for vaccination of persons above 45 years, for vaccinating beneficiaries who were due for second dose.

“But under the changed circumstances and severe shortage of vaccine, the vaccine procured directly by the state government for vaccination of persons between 18 to 44 years too will be utilised for vaccination of beneficiaries who are due for second dose,” a senior health department official told reporters on the condition of anonymity.

The health department added that this order will be applicable for Covid vaccination at all state-run Covid vaccination centres in the state.

As of now, only two vaccines manufactured by Pune based Serum Institute of India (SII) and Hyderabad based Bharat Biotech are allowed in India for mass inoculation programme, but these companies are struggling to meet the country’s overwhelming demand for vaccines amid the ferocious second wave that has seen India’s Covid burden go up manifold.

Karnataka symbolically launched anti-Covid vaccination drive on May 1 but ever since it has failed to take off due to short supply of vaccines.

Karnataka Health minister, K. Sudhkar was first to state on April 30 that it was better to put off the launch of the drive on May 1 as the state had not received required stock and this was even endorsed by Chief Minister, B.S. Yediyurappa on that day. But, Yediyurappa the next day launched the vaccination drive symbolically on May 1.

Yogi Adityanath Takes Cognisance of Bodies Dumped in Ganga; UP-Bihar Govts Blame Each Other

Published

on

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday took cognisance of bodies found floating in the Ganga in Ballia district and said the last rites should be done according to the deceased’s religious beliefs. He also noted that the dumping of bodies in water causes pollution.

At least 45 bodies were seen floating in floating near the Ujiyar, Kulhadia and Bharauli ghats in the Narahi area on Tuesday evening. Late on Tuesday night, seven more bodies were found, taking the total count of bodies to 52, an official said. District officials have begun performing the last to avoid Covid-19 contagion. The dumping of bodies also increases the risk of spreading infections in communities inhabiting the banks of rivers, officials said.

Meanwhile, the Bihar government on Tuesday said altogether 71 bodies have been fished out from the Ganges in Buxar district and were later cremated as per protocols. Some samples were, however, collected for DNA testing.

Bihar Additional chief secretary (home) Chaitanya Prasad said that the bodies in Buxar had flown downstream from neighbouring Uttar Pradesh. Speaking to News18, he said, “All these dead bodies were being dumped in Ganga from Uttar Pradesh, which flowed and stopped at Chausa and Mahavir Ghat in Buxar (Bihar border). An investigation has been launched on the orders of the Bihar government regarding the issue.”

Officials of both UP and Bihar have discussed the issue with their counterparts, including the Chief Secretaries, Additional Chief Secretaries, DGPs and District Magistrates, sources said.

Bihar authorities have raised strong objections to the dumping of bodies amid Covid-19 pandemic concerns. However, both the states have agreed to implement strict Covid-19 protocol in bordering districts. As per reports, a huge net has also been put up in the Ganges near Raniganj, Buxar.

A video of bodies found buried in shallow pits near the banks of the Ganga had also gone viral. The viral video showed dogs nibbling on the corpses.

The Allahabad High Court had earlier expressed concern over the under-reporting of Covid-19 deaths and has asked the state to record the deaths of those who died with Covid symptoms even if their tests could not be done.

Uttar Pradesh reported 329 more Covid-19 deaths and 18,125 fresh cases in the last 24 hours.
