Power Star To Enter Into Full Time Politics? May 30, 2017 16:12

Power Star To Enter Into Full Time Politics?:- The actor-turned politician, Power Star Pawan Kalyan who has been criticized of playing a guest role in politics, by some politicians, finally seems to have decided to commit himself to politics. As per the reports, the actor is keen to complete the film as soon as possible, being directed by Trivikram, for which the titles “Engineer Babu” and “Gopaludu” are under consideration and plunge into the political arena as a full-time politician. Pawan has taken a different approach towards strengthening his party. Recently, it was reported that the Janasena Chief held examinations to those who were interested in joining the party. Pawan wants his cadre to be more dynamic and knowledgeable, unlike other party cadres, says party sources. Recently, Pawan announced that he would be contesting in the 2019 elections. Though he initially wanted to contest from Anantapur, there were suggestions that he should contest from Hindupur. The Hindupur constituency happens to be the constituency of another actor-turned-politician, Nandamuri Balakrishna. It is being said that Pawan has not yet chosen the constituency. Sources said that he wants to select a constituency which will guarantee his win. As every party in the State is gearing up for elections, Pawan appears to have thought of giving a break to acting. However, it was not confirmed by the star yet. Pawan is determined not to fail like his brother, Mega Star Chiranjeevi. He tested the waters during 2014 elections and now, wants to enter politics full time. Though he is keeping good relations with AP CM Chandrababu Naidu and also BJP, speculation is that he might choose BJP as it is concentrating more on backward caste candidates than the dominant castes.

CBI Court Grants Bail To Senior BJP Leaders In Babri Masjid Case May 30, 2017 15:16

CBI Court Grants Bail To Senior BJP Leaders In Babri Masjid Case:- A Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court has granted bail to senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case. The bail was granted on a surety of Rs 50,000 each involved in the case. All the 12 accused have been granted bail in the case. This was the first time, that these BJP leaders have appeared before a court in connection with the case. The Supreme Court, last month had restored the criminal conspiracy charges framed against Advani, Joshi, Bharti and other accused. Moreover, the judgment given by the Allahabad High Court was overruled by the SC. The discharge application filed by the accused, including the senior BJP Leaders has been rejected by the Special CBI court. Now, the charges will be framed against all the accused in the case. According to reports, charges under section 120(b) of the Indian Penal Code have been framed against LK Advani and others. Section 120B stands for criminal conspiracy. Apart from the senior BJP leaders, BJP leader Vinay Katiyar, Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Vishnu Hari Dalmia and one-time firebrand Hindutva preacher Sadhvi Ritambara were also summoned to appear before the court. The BJP leaders, on May 26, were ordered to appear by the Special CBI court. Special CBI Judge, SK Yadav, while directing the accused to present themselves in person, had said no application for exemption or adjournment from personal appearance shall be entertained. The charges would also be levied against Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, Mahant Ram Vilas Vedanti, Baikunth Lal Sharma alias Prem Ji, Champat Rai Bansal, Mahant Dharma Das, Vishnu Hari Dalmiya and Satish Pradhan. Before the hearing, UP CM Yogi Adityanath greeted Advani, Joshi and others at the VVIP guest house in Lucknow. The top court referred the destruction of the monument of medieval-era, a “crime”. This demolition shook the “Secular Fabric of the Constitution”. It further allowed the CBI petition seeking restoration of criminal conspiracy charge against the four BJP leaders, including Vinay Katiyar (62), and others. The top court said, BJP leader, Kalyan Singh, who is the Rajasthan Governor, is entitled to immunity under the Constitution until he remains in service. The disputed structure was demolished during Singh’s tenure as the CM of UP. The case was transferred by the court against the senior BJP leaders, and the other three accused from a Raebareli court to Lucknow for a joint trial. SUPRAJA

SC Refuses To Stay IPS Officer Conviction In Bilkis Bano Case:- The Supreme Court (SC) today has refused to grant a stay on the conviction of the Indian Police Service (IPS) officer R S Bhagora in the Bilkis Bano case. There is no urgency in the matter, as the convicted officer has already undergone the sentence, said the apex court bench of justices headed by A.K. Sikri and Deepak Gupta. The plea of the IPS officer has been listed by the court, for the second week of July, observing the fine of Rs 15,000 only. Recently, the Bombay High Court has convicted the IPS officer, along with four other policemen, after the trial court had acquitted them. Bhagora currently serves in Gujarat. If the conviction is not stayed, then he will be terminated from the service as per the service rules, said the counsel appearing for Bhagora. The court should grant stay on the conviction, said the counsel. During the 2002 Gujarat Riots, Bilkis Bano was gang raped by a group of men. At that time, Bilkis was 19-years old and was pregnant. The group of men brutalized Bano and her family had been killed in front of her. On May 4, the CBI’s plea was rejected by the Bombay High Court, which sought the death sentence for the three accused in the case. Moreover, the High Court also upheld the life sentence of the 11 convicts (one convict is dead). Along with five policemen, two doctors were also convicted by the High Court. SUPRAJA

Character Actress Comes In Support Of Chalapathi Rao May 30, 2017 12:54

Character Actress Comes In Support Of Chalapathi Rao:- Much to everyone’s surprise, Character Actress Apoorva has come in support of senior actor Chalapathi Rao. The senior actor currently is facing ire of people for one slip of the tongue he made at the event of Rarandoi audio launch. Rao is also facing a criminal case for his comment made without thinking and is severely upset now. His son, director Ravi Babu already fired at media and stated to kill him in one shot, than to torture his father like this. Meanwhile, we have Apoorva taking a stand up for Chalapathi Rao. She referred the actor as Babai and said the actor made the comment out of humor, and not lust. The actress took this to reveal few sensational and unexpected things about the industry people. The industry has so many people who would talk to women artists in shot gaps and even call artists to bedrooms after shoots, said Apoorva. And compared to such people, Babai is a God. She further asked more people from the industry, who knows about Chapalapthi Rao, to come out in support of the senior actor. There was no single occurrence of the actor, misbehaving with anyone. There was a fake news that he committed suicide after this incident. At least, the revelations made by Apoorva should shut the mouth of the people talking about him. We wish that the entire incident be settled amicably and he is treated like before ! SUPRAJA

Jadhav Providing “Crucial Intelligence” On Terror Attacks In Country, Claims Pak May 30, 2017 12:13

Jadhav Providing “Crucial Intelligence” On Terror Attacks In Country, Claims Pak:- Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav (46), who has been sentenced to death by a military court, was providing “crucial intelligence” about the recent terrorist attacks in the country, claimed Pakistan. Jadhav was given death sentence last month, on charges of “involvement in espionage and sabotage activities” against the country. Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria addressing a news channel, said in an interview, “With regard to the recent terrorist attacks in Pakistan, Jadhav continues to provide crucial intelligence.” However, the details of the intelligence being provided by Jadhav was not elaborated by Zakaria. Jadhav’s execution was stayed by the Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) on May 18, but it has to decide the jurisdiction issue in the case, said Pakistani officials. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf reported a news channel that Pak had enough strong evidence to prove that Jadhav was a “spy”. However, the information on Jadhav could not be disclosed due to security reasons. “The evidence would only be presented before the ICJ, one it starts the hearing,” said Ausaf. Ausaf said, the procedural order of ICJ given on May 18, was neither Pak’s defeat nor India’s success, and emphasized that “Pakistan will be on solid ground to win”, when the case restarts. When asked about the constitution of a new legal team, Ausaf said there were no plans to change the team. It would be expanded. On further questioning, why he did not represent Pakistan at the May 15 hearing at the ICJ, Ausaf claimed that “he knew prior to the judgment that the ICJ is going to announce the provisional order.” The ruling triggered criticism of the Pakistan Foreign Office for its “poor handling” and also for its choice of attorney Khawar Qureshi, who presented Pakistan’s case before the ICJ.

JR NTR’s Dilemma Over His Next Film May 30, 2017 11:26

JR NTR’s Dilemma Over His Next Film:- Can anyone guess what is the next film of ace director SS Rajamouli after “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” and who is the hero? Even though there are several speculations doing rounds in the media, actors NTR and Mahesh Babu are the front runners in the race. The reason is simple. The director Rajamouli has already revealed that he has prior commitments with KL Narayana and DVV Danayya. KL Narayana is keen on producing a movie in the combination of Rajamouli-Mahesh Babu. However, this seems to be not possible tight now, as Mahesh has kick started his next film in the direction of Koratala Siva. As Mahesh’s project is ruled out until January, Young Tiger Jr NTR is available for Rajamouli. It seems that NTR also has expressed his wish to associate with the director once again. Even Rajamouli is throwing hints that he is keen to team up with Young Tiger. However, there seems to be twist here. NTR has been waiting since long time to team up with Trivikram Srinivas and recently the combo has been finalized. It is expected that the duo are going to work together after “Jai Lava Kusa”. If NTR wishes to work with Rajamouli immediately, then he has to drop Trivikram’s film. Going by the present craze and hype, some opine that NTR will opt for Rajamouli. Let us wait for some more time to get clarity on the next project of NTR !! SUPRAJA
