    मंडी: उत्तर प्रदेश के मुख्यमंत्री योगी आदित्यनाथ ने आज हिमाचल प्रदेश के मंडी में भारतीय जनता पार्टी की उम्मीदवार कंगना रनौत के पक्ष में हमीरपुर मैं केंद्रीय मंत्री अनुराग सिंह ठाकुर के पक्ष में प्रचार के अंतिम दिन चुनाव प्रचार किया। कुल्लू में जनसभा को सम्बोधित करते हुई रैली कंगना की जमकर तारीफ़ की और उनकी तुलना मीराबाई से लेकर रानी पद्मिनी और रानी लक्ष्मीबाई से करते हुए कहा कि कंगना रनौत में मीराबाई के जैसी भक्ति हैं उसमें महारानी पद्मिनी का तेज है और विरोधियों से जूझने के लिए रानी लक्ष्मीबाई जैसा शौर्य और वीरांगना का भाव भी हैं. आपने देखा होगा कैसे इन्होंने मुंबई में उद्धव ठाकरे और कांग्रेस की सरकार को सड़को पर नाकों चने चबवा दिए थे। उन्होंने एक बार फिर 400 पार के नारे को दोहराते हुए दावा किया कि आज लोग कह रहे हैं जो राम लाए हैं हम उनको लाएँगे। मुख्यमंत्री योगी ने केंद्रीय मंत्री अनुराग ठाकुर के पक्ष में प्रचार करते हुए कहा कि अनुराग प्रधानमंत्री के नवरत्नों में से एक है और प्रधानमंत्री मोदी कि केबिनेट का एक स्मार्ट चेहरा जो वित्त मंत्री निर्मला सीतारमण, केबिनेट मंत्री पीयुष गोयल की बराबरी का गिना जाता है। विकास की एक एक योजना को देश को बताने का कार्य करते है। उन्होंने कहा कि हमारी सरकार ने काशी और अयोध्या का काम तो पूरा कर दिया है अब हम मथुरा की ओर बढ़ गए हैं. ये चुनाव राम भक्तों और राम द्रोहियों के बीच में है। रामद्रोही ,आतंकवादी ,विकास को बाधित करने वाले और भारत को अपमानित करने वाले इंडी गठबंधन  के लोग हैं। मुख्यमंत्री योगी आदित्यनाथ ने कहा कि देश में बीते 10 साल में व्यापक बदलाव हुए है। सरकारें पहले भी थी, पैसा पहले भी था, देश और प्रदेश भी वही था, मगर तब विकास की सोच नहीं थी। केवल अपने परिवार के विकास की सोच ही हावी थी। आज पूरे देश में एक ही नारा गूंज रहा है कि फिर एक बार मोदी सरकार और अबकी बार चार सौ पार। इस नारे से सपा और कांग्रेस को चक्कर आने लगा है, क्योंकि ये 400 सीटों पर चुनाव भी नहीं लड़ रहे। आज एक नई अयोध्या बन चुकी है - सीएम योगी ने कहा कि आज एक नई अयोध्या बन चुकी है, ऐसे लगता है जैसे प्रभु श्रीराम साक्षात विराजमान होकर हमपर अपनी कृपा बरसा रहे है। अयोध्या में रामलला विराजमान हो चुके है, मगर उससे पहले ही वहां के इंटरनेशनल एयरपोर्ट का नाम महर्षि वाल्मीकि के नाम पर रखा गया। विश्रामालयों का नाम निषाद राज के नाम पर और माता शबरी के नाम पर भोजनालयों का नामकरण किया गया। हम सौभाग्यशाली पीढ़ी है हमने रामलला को विराजमान होते देखा है। आप कह सकते हैं कि हमारे कारण ये काम हुआ है, जिसने भी कमल के फूल पर वोट दिया है। वह कह सकता है कि भगवान श्रीराम हमारे कारण विराजमान हुए है यह इस लोक और परलोक को सुधारने वाला कार्य है। 10 साल में हमने बदलते हुए भारत को देखा। मुख्यमंत्री ने कहा 10 साल में हमने बदलते हुए भारत को देखा है। हमने दुनिया में नई पहचान बनाई है। दुनिया में कहीं संकट आता है तो वह भारत की ओर देखती है आज सीमाओं पर घुसपैठ नहीं होती। कांग्रेस और सपा राज में आतंकी विस्फोट होते थे। आज सब समाप्त हो चुका है एक पटाखा भी फट जाए तो पाकिस्तान सफाई देने लगता है उसे पता है कि उसका नाम आ गया तो उसका काम तमाम होना तय है। उन्होंने कहा कि औरंगजेब की आत्मा समाजवादी पार्टी और कांग्रेस में घुस गई है। औरंगजेब को फिर से जिंदा नहीं होने देना है और इसलिए आपके पास आया हूं । भारत की आत्मा के साथ कर रहे खिलवाड़ उन्होंने कहा ये जितने भी कांग्रेसी, समाजवादी पार्टी और बहुजन समाजवादी पार्टी के लोग हैं, ये भारत के मूल्य एवं आदर्शों के विरुद्ध आचरण कर रहे हैं। भारत की आत्मा के साथ खिलवाड़ कर रहे है। भारत की सुरक्षा के साथ खिलवाड़ कर रहे है। सीएम योगी आदित्यनाथ ने आरोप लगाया कि अगर विपक्षी गठबंधन इंडिया सत्ता में आता है तो वह तालिबानी शासन, जजिया कर थोपेगा। बीजेपी के लिए पटना साहिब से उम्मीदवार एवं पूर्व केंद्रीय मंत्री रविशंकर प्रसाद और आरा से उम्मीदवार आर.के. सिंह के समर्थन में अलग-अलग चुनावी सभाओं को संबोधित करते हुए योगी ने आरोप लगाया कि कांग्रेस और इंडिया का घोषणा पत्र कहता है कि अगर उसकी सरकार आई तो पर्सनल लॉ लागू किया जाएगा। रविशंकर जी ने जिस लड़ाई को अदालत में लड़कर तीन तलाक की प्रथा को समाप्त करवाया ये चाहते हैं कि तीन तलाक प्रथा फिर से चालू हो जाए। विपक्षी गठबंधन तालिबानी शासन लाना चाहता है जिसमें महिलाओं को स्कूल, कॉलेज और दफ्तरों में जाने की आजादी नहीं होगी और उन्हें हमेशा बुर्का पहनने के लिए मजबूर किया जाएगा। उन्होंने यह भी आरोप लगाया कि कांग्रेस ‘जजिया कर’ की तरह ‘विरासत कर’ लागू करना चाहती है। जजिया कर मध्यकालीन समय में मुस्लिम शासकों द्वारा अन्य धर्म के लोगों पर लगाया जाता था। योगी ने कहा, ‘‘वे औरंगजेब का जजिया कर लाना चाहते हैं जिसके कुकर्मों के कारण मुसलमान अपने बच्चों का नाम मुगल शासक के नाम पर रखने से डरते हैं।

  • Not a single Ration Card will be cancelled, we are in a process to make fresh ration cards: Bhagwant Mann

    Patiala: AAP national convenor and Delhi's chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, on the last day of the campaign in Punjab, campaigned for AAP's Patiala candidate Dr Balbir Singh. Both the leaders appealed to the people that they must vote on June 1st. Arvind Kejriwal said that there is record breaking heat right now but your vote is very important too. Addressing the gathering Mann said that there are some rumours, being spread by some newspaper whose owner squandered the money of our martyrs and is now facing charges for his corruption, that we will cancel ration cards. CM said that this is an utter lie and a baseless rumour. They want to mislead people just before the elections. People should stay vigilant and not pay attention to such news. Mann said that no ration cards will be cancelled, indeed more ration cards will be issued to the people who don't have one right now. Mann said that he cannot even think about stopping any facility of the common people. He said that no one will sleep on an empty stomach in Punjab.He said that the AAP government will distribute wheat and flour to the people as before and the people of Punjab will get top quality wheat. Mann said that no one can accuse him or Arvind Kejriwal of doing corruption of even a single rupee. He said that he is giving government jobs, free electricity, building schools and hospitals and he even bought a thermal power plant for Punjab. Only anti-Punjab and corrupt forces are trying to mislead the people, they should stay cautious. Mann said that they (other parties) will also distribute money for votes, "don't refuse that money", advised Mann. But even after taking money, vote only according to your own wish and for the bright future of your children. Mann urged the people to do their job just for these two days and promised that after June 1st everything will be his responsibility. Mann also took a dig at the Captain family of Patiala and said that during the Mughal Empire, his family was with the Mughals, during British rule they joined the Britishers, during Akali government they were Akali and in the Congress regime they were in the Congress party, now there was the government of the BJP, so Captain Amarinder Singh and his family joined the BJP. Mann said that they never sided with the people nor did they ever do anything for the common people. Mann thanked the people for joining the AAP road show in large numbers and said that the love and support of the people doesn't let him get tired. He urged the people to vote for the AAP and elect the AAP candidate Dr Balbir Singh as their MP. He said that for Modi's rally, they brought paid people to show the crowd and later refused to pay the promised Rs 400 per person to those people. Mann also recited his famous kikli-2 which has gained significant popularity in his campaign during these elections.

  • Tewari hit under the belt when I spoke of vision and new roadmap of Chandigarh: Tandon

    Chandigarh: As the campaign for the Lok Sabha election concluded today, BJP Chandigarh candidate for LS seat, Sanjay Tandon launched a scathing attack on his counterpart Manish Tewari for "hitting below the belt" all through his campaign. Addressing the press meet held at a hotel in Sector 22, Chandigarh, Tandon said Tewari's campaign smacked of false arrogance and egoism through which he aspired to reflect his "status" more than addressing the problems of the people of Chandigarh. All through the campaign Tewari has been seeing things in Chandigarh through his coloured glasses, said Tandon adding that he wished that Tewari was more grounded in his campaign. Tandon said his dependence on social media platforms like X and others simply reflected his "shallow understanding of the ground realities". Tandon said "Today for sure, I can say that Tewari is the second Kejriwal who eats his words with regrets." There have been a series of examples when Tewari ate his words after putting them on social media as Kejriwal has been doing. Tandon asked Tewari to explain how many times he has visited Chandigarh in the last four decades. "I have been engaged in so many social activities to relate to the people be it crisis times of pandemic or otherwise. During the event, Tandon released the charter of 56 achievements done by the BJP in the last ten years. He said, “While the Congress nominee Manish Tewari has been busy hopping around the constituencies, the BJP under my watch focused on progress and developmentof the city during the period when I also served as the city BJP president for two consecutive terms.” Taking a dig at the frequent change of constituencies that Tewari has been resorting to, Tandon questioned  Tewari who has his voyer card from Ludhiana whom will he vote for in Ludhiana from where he has his voter card, whom will he vote for Congress or AAP in this election? The BJP has made many contributions in the development of the city. The development took place across the areas of Infrastructure Development, Urban Services, Healthcare, Social Welfare and Administrative Reforms, Sports, Energy and Environment, Tourism, Education etc.During my intensive campaign people from Shri Anandpur Sahib and Ludhiana did come over to share their disappointment with Tewari as their MP but I desisted from undertaking a negative campaign and focused on my future vision of the city, which I promise to make an international hub of IT and other  enterprises where the youth could realize their dreams and ambitions. I also plan to lay down a roadmap to build international infrastructure in the city to attract investments from all quarters. Congress has no Neta, No Niti  and No Niyat Sanjay Tandon attacked Congress and said that they have no Neta, No Niti  and No Niyat. He said that the Indi Alliance is just a corrupt grouping.  Congress is  in such dire straits it is not even contesting on 300 seats. This time Congress will be reduced to 50 seats. Replying to Tewari's accusation that BSP was BJP's B Team Tandon said that everyone knows whose B team BSP is and on whose orders it functions. Tewari has a track record of lying and going back on his words. Sanjay Tandon took Tewari to task and said that lying and going back on his words has been his track record. Due to this, the top leaders of the Congress high command have distanced themselves from Tewari's election campaign. Congress national president Mallikarjun Kharge came to Chandigarh and held a meeting in a luxurious hotel but he did not campaign for Manish Tewari. Moreover, Congress's biggest star campaigner Rahul Gandhi came to  Panchkula, but did not campaign for Tewari. The way Tewari  threatened Pawan Banal with arrogance in Priyanka Gandhi's public meeting shows he even  lacks social values.

With the Tricity residents casting their votes across the final phases of the ongoing General Elections, this initiative aims to rally residents to come out in record numbers, surpassing previous election turnouts and setting a new standard for voter participation. Running on June 1 and 2, this dynamic campaign is packed with activities designed to motivate and reward voters. CP67 Mall, a socially responsible corporate leader in the retail space, is committed to fostering a vibrant democratic process. By blending fun with civic duty, the mall is turning the voting day into a community celebration. One of the highlights of this engaging exercise is the “Spin the Wheel” game, where participants stand a chance to win fantastic offers, adding an element of thrill to their voting experience. Voters can also enjoy the perk of 1+1 PVR ticket vouchers, redeemable from Monday to Thursday, for the next one month beginning June 3 making their voting experience even more rewarding. On June 1 and 2, voters need to visit the special ticket counter being setup by CP67 at the mall and collect the PVR ticket voucher. The campaign also features a photo booth where voters can capture their Election Day pride and share it on the social media by tagging CP67 Mall to spread the excitement. The centrepiece of the campaign is the “Lucky Draw”. Voters who register for the campaign can drop their names into the draw for a chance to win amazing prizes: an iPhone as first prize, an Apple Watch as second and a pair of air pods as the third prize. To qualify, participants must register on June 1 or 2 and show their voting ink to prove they’ve cast their ballot. Registration is limited to one per person and the ”Lucky Draw” winners will be announced on the evening of 2nd June.
