Assembly Election 2022 LIVE Updates

The stage is set for Assembly elections in five states -- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur, Goa and Punjab. While the first four are ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the last one has a Congress government. The Election Commission has already announced the dates and all the political parties have started flexing their muscles in the poll-bound states. Uttar Pradesh, the country's most populous and one of the most politically crucial states, is already witnessing marathon rallies by top politicians from both the ruling and opposition parties. From Congress' side, its senior leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is spearheading the campaign. She is addressing rallies across the length and breadth of the state, promising to bring a change if her party forms the next government. Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati, both former CMs of Uttar Pradesh, are also leaving no stone unturned to woo the voters.

    Mahatma Gandhi was ascetic, his path should be followed: Rahul Gandhi

    Taking veiled swipes at the BJP leadership, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said Mahatma Gandhi was an "ascetic" whose ways should be emulated rather than worshipping him.

    Followers of Hindutva worship ascetics but mock their teachings, he said.

    The Congress leader was speaking at a seminar on Gandhi's thoughts, 'Gandhi Vichar Sangosthi- Nava Raipur Sevagram: Swarup and Sambhavnaye', at the Science College ground.

    His statements also came in the backdrop of the recent derogatory statements made by some right-wing religious leaders about the Father of the Nation.

    “To me, he (Mahatma Gandhi) was a tapasvi (ascetic) who devoted his whole life to `tapasya' (penance/mission). Many people do tapasya but he also added truth to it,” he said.

Also the 27-year-old singer, who is often caught on the wrong side of the law but broke several records, does not mind in singing couplets of his songs and posing for countless selfies with the electorate, largely first-timers.

I want to serve my people by generating employment and developing infrastructure," Shubhdeep Singh, now famous as Sidhu Moosewala, who have lent his voice in messages about how to stay safe amidst Covid-19, told IANS.

    UP polls: SP candidate refuses to fight poll on new seat, seeks to return party ticket

    A Samajwadi Party candidate from the Matera assembly seat in Bahraich district on Wednesday sought to return the party ticket, saying he cannot fight on an entirely new seat instead of the one he had been tending for the last 10 years. Haji Mohammad Ramzan announced his intention to return the SP ticket hours after he was made the official candidate from the constituency.

    Talking to reporters, Ramzan said he has been working for the Shravasti assembly segment for the last 10 years and the people there want him to contest from that seat and win it.

    "It is not possible to contest an election from a new area like Matera (Bahraich) just before the election," Ramzan said.

    Taking a swipe at Aslam Rayani, who has been given the party ticket from Shravasti seat, Ramzan asked him why was he running away from the Bhinga seat from where he is the sitting MLA.
