This press note has been doing the rounds since yesterday morning. It was issued by Zila Samajkalyan Adhikari. Apparently this concerned officer issued this press note in continuation with one scheme in force under one 1976 scheme of UP Govt as made applicable to Ukd
As UP was the parent state, there is an unwritten code that schemes, rules etc are generally copied from UP only & so was this scheme. Under one order during previous Cong Govt, the amount paid to couples eligible under this scheme was increased from 10K to 50K
During PY 2019-20, 18 couples were paid this prize money-15 were cases of inter caste marriages & 3 were that of interfaith marriages.
Details of 3 interfaith marriages are-
1) Sikh boy married a Hindu girl
2) Sikh boy married a Muslim girl
3) Christian boy married Hindu girl
Those 3 cases are of Haldwani, US Nagar and Nainital. As District Tehri wasn’t receiving any applications under this head so this over zealous officer issued a pressnote and thanks to this pressnote this issue got highlighted and has come to the notice of the Govt
The pressnote has already been withdrawn and necessary corrective actions have already been initiated.

What people need to understand is that Govt always work in continuation & now that this issue has come to the attention of the Govt, necessary corrective action is being taken
What people need to understand and realise is that no one from Govt has spoken in support of promoting interfaith marriages. Previous data also doesn’t suggest that anything of the sort being made out on Twitter has happened in this case.
And lastly, what matters here is not what was happening from long but the response of the Govt as soon as the matter was brought to its notice -people need to take it easy; no one in BJP Govt, even in their wildest of dreams, will do/ support anything that is being made out here
Had clarified this yesterday as well

This narrative by Mr @ShekharGupta is another cunning attempt to stop the real game from being exposed. Let us understand one by one the reason behind this PTI story and who, what and why of it.
Why today: Armed forces dealt a massive blow to terror infra and managed to instil fear in the minds of terrorists by sending the message that they r not even safe in apple trucks & that there pun pointed intel means sure shot death of every gun wielding Izzlamist terrorist
Need was to do something that will help divert attention away from the today’s success of armed forces in the valley and PTI story did exactly that - turned out to be a perfect diversionary act!

Arnabis not into fake stings,he is not even a blackmailer & he does his journalism openly-yet look at what all he is going through only for his journalism.
Now compare his case to that of media houses like NDTV- IndiaToday etc who for years did supari journalism yet going strong!
Back in my state- a known blackmailer- with cases of land grab & even alleged rape cases (withdrawn or not pressed)- one who destabilised several govts not only managed to thwart all attempts to use legal recourse against him. Such is his fear amongst all pillars that when 1/n
his bail plea came up for hearing in, judges recused themselves & one who later heard it- he gave police custody of 6 hrs as against one week demanded by police. Later got long stay from SC and now even HC passed a strange verdict...& guess what he is known blackmailer!

Said this in 2016 and what we are witnessing is nothing but this- the older cousin and the original barbarians are being pestered and pushed to wake up from their self imposed ban on barbarity- it won’t end well for new barbarians ImageImage
And younger cousins will bear the brunt of the barbarity - it won’t end well for younger lot! Image
Small sample from France I guess

It took one woman politician to drill down sense in everyone including Macron and her name is Marie Le Pen: credit for the change goes to her and not Macron!
Macron defeated Marine Le Pen in 2017 on his liberal card only. 2022 is when he has to face the electorate. This age old flagbearer of liberal values- hailed by IRW for sharing one tweet- has suddenly realised the threat, that he rejected, in the run up to 2017
Also important get to mention is the other name - Gerald Darmanin- his newly appointed Interior Minister and yes it is him who is making the difference. He is the real guy in all this war, discovered by Macron!

I truly wish one opens a school wherein other than teaching dharm- shastras & sanatan values, kids are given space and freedom to enjoy their lives- and given the fact sanatan is a way of life, I am sure latter will automatically flow from former!
I had once tweeted about a school in Sri Kedarnath ji valley near Kalimath and how one answer of a kid stayed with me forever - here it is:
Never before this (or even after that) I came across a school kid who gave me this answer........
