BJP bribed press for Advani roadshow, claims Congress

Bhopal/New Delhi, Oct 14 (IANS) Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani's anti-graft roadshow, the Jan Chetna Yatra, has run smack into charges of cash inducements after it reachedMadhya Pradesh, ruled by the party's government, Thursday.
The state Congress unit accused the ruling BJP of giving cash to journalists ahead of the yatra, at a briefing called by the Satna district unit of the party.
'The party which is making hue and cry over black money is itself using black money for Advani's yatra,' state Congress president Kantilal Bhuria told IANS.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) also condemned the alleged attempt to bribe journalists and said it only proved its assertion that the yatra was not against corruption.
'The attempt to bribe journalists in Satna is very unfortunate, condemnable and troubling. We have always maintained that the yatra was not against corruption. Whenever Advani has taken out a yatra, there has been a hidden agenda,' party spokesman Raashid Alvi said in Delhi.
At least two dozens Congress workers, comprising both women and men, were arrested Friday by the local police when they sought to show black flags to Advani's yatra in Satna.
'There is no meaning to such a yatra in Madhya Pradesh when several ministers of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan cabinet are embroiled in corruption charges,' Madhya Pradesh's Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh alleged.
Satna MP Ganesh Singh of the BJP, who along with PWD Minister Nagendra Singh was present at the media briefing, denied that cash was distributed to newsmen by the party.
'Neither has it been a policy of the party nor was (cash) distributed by us,' Singh said. 'But we will sure inquire.'
Advani told reporters that the president of his party unit in Madhya Pradesh, Prabhat Jha, will investigate whether bribes were offered in exchange for coverage in Satna.
Advani's yatra reached Madhya Pradesh late Thursday evening and will remain in the state till Oct 16. During these four days, his yatra will cover 45 assembly constituencies and travel approximately 1,100 km.

Bipasha rubbishes wedding reports

Actress Bipasha Basu has rubbished reports that she is planning to tie the knot with actor Rana Daggubati soon.

"Reading reports of my supposed wedding plans, there is absolutely no truth in them," Bipasha, who parted ways with actor John Abraham, wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Rumours were rife that Bipasha and her Dum Maaro Dum co-star Rana were dating and that they were planning to get married.

I saw Sachin’s legs shivering while facing Akhtar: Afridi

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has supported retired fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar’s claims that Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was scared of his pace, saying that he was a witness of Tendulkar’s legs shivering in front of the Rawalpindi Express.
In his book, Controversially Yours, Akhtar wrote that Tendulkar was scared of his bowling, a comment that has caused furore across the border, forcing publishers to cancel all launch-related and publicity events.
When asked about Akhtar’s claims in his book, Afridi showed no hesitation in backing the controversial bowler.

'Shoaib is telling the truth. Tendulkar was afraid of him, and while fielding, I saw Tendulkar’s legs shivering while facing his bowling,' The Express Tribune quoted Afridi, as saying.

However, the all-rounder added that it was not an unusual feature of a batsman.

“There are times when every batsman feels the pressure, it happens against [Pakistani off-spinner] Saeed Ajmal even,” said Afridi.

The former captain, however, was critical of Akhtar’s comments blaming Afridi for his omission from the 2011 ICC World Cup semi-final squad against India.

“Shoaib should remember that I apologised to the chairman and manager on his behalf and got him back into the national squad. While he hasn’t lied about other things, he won’t be able to look at me in the eyes after he’s said all that,” Afridi said.

Kanimozhi's stay in jail continues

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court today deferred hearing on the bail application of DMK MP Kanimozhi and Kalignar TV chief Sharad Kumar till 17 October in the 2G spectrum case.
Kanimozhi's counsel Sushil Kumar told CBI special judge OP Saini: 'We want to argue on the bail application only after the court frames charges against my client (Kanimozhi) in the scam.'
Sharad Kumar made the same submissions.
The court will hear arguments on other five bail pleas in the case on Monday.
Kanimozhi, daughter of DMK president M Karunanidhi, has been in jail since 20 May. The DMK MP on 16 September had filed a fresh bail plea before a CBI special court.
Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar, managing director of Kalaignar TV Pvt Ltd, a DMK-run television channel, were named by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as co-conspirators in the 2G spectrum scam.
In August, Kanimozhi had reportedly told a CBI court that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram were fully aware of the 2G license allocations and had decided with the now jailed telecom minister A Raja not to auction these.
The CBI on Friday filed written replies opposing the bail applications of five accused persons in the 2G spectrum scam case, while leaving it to the special court's discretion to decide on the bail pleas of Kanimozhi and Cineyug Films promoter Karim Morani.
While Kanimozhi sought bail on the ground that she was a woman and mother, Morani cited ill-health. Section 437 of the Criminal Procedure Code allows bail for those 'under the age of 16, or is a woman, or is sick, or infirm.'
The CBI opposed the bail applications of Sharad Kumar, Raja's private secretary R K Chandolia, Swan Telecom promoter Shahid Usman Balwa and Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables promoters Asif Balwa and Rajiv Agarwal.
The agency, in separate replies, cited the order of the Supreme Court, which, while dismissing Kanimozhi's bail plea, had given the accused liberty to move bail applications in the special court after it passed orders on framing of charges.
