    No relief for AAP leader Kumar Vishwas in 'illicit relationship' row:

    Delhi High Court refused to give any interim relief to senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas on a party volunteer's complaint on alleged "rumours" about their 'illicit relationship', saying his plea challenging the Delhi women's commission summons had some "blatant" faults. Justice Rajiv Shakdher said one "defect" in the plea was that the volunteer should have been made a party in the petition as it was on her complaint that the summons were issued. The other "fault" pointed out by the court was that Delhi government need not be impleaded, as the plea has not sought removal of any member of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW). The court refused to consider the repeated pleas of Kumar Vishwas' counsel Somnath Bharti for an interim stay on the summons, saying that grant of any relief at this stage, without the presence of the complainant, would be "like putting the cart before the horse". The court also told Bharti that he ought not have disclosed the name of the complainant during the hearing. (Express Photo) (16/05/2015)

    Sadananda Gowda asks Rahul Gandhi to study the new real estate bill

    Union Law and Justice Minister D V Sadananda Gowda lambasted Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Real Estate Regulatory Authority Bill. Talking to reporters, Gowda said instead of criticising Modi, Gandhi should first know his position in his own party and also try to understand the contents of the bill. Rahul Gandhi had claimed that the amendments to the legislation had diluted the provisions of the Real Estate Authority Bill, making it pro-builder from being pro-buyer. (Image: PTI) (04/05/2015)

    Arvind Kejriwal attacked in Lok Sabha for 'defamatory news' move:

    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government on Monday came under attack in Lok Sabha over the move against 'defamatory news', with BJP saying it was a reminder of the Emergency. The issue was raised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member from Delhi Meenakshi Lekhi without naming Arvind Kejriwal and his government but obviously referring to it. She said the Chief Minister of Delhi has said that defamation cases should be filed against those who do not write favourable about them. At the same time, the "good journalists" from their perspective shall be encouraged through awards, Lekhi said. "Such a move an insult to democracy. The House should condemn it," the BJP member said. "We cannot have a system in which such news is incentivised with the tax payers money which the government (of Delhi) finds suitable. It's an attempt to keep the truth away from the people," she added. It reminds of Emergency when the media was targeted by the then Congress government at the Centre. (PTI) (11/05/2015)
