Amit Shah hits out at Congress 26.4.2015 Asian Age: India
BJP president Amit Shah and Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje meet the family members of farmer Gajendra Singh—PTI BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday said that the NDA government was committed to work in the interests of farmers. He cited Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to bring down norms from 50 per cent crop damage to 33 per cent to be eligible for compensation as a proof of this. He said that even compensation has been increased by 1.5 times. Reacting to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s constant reference to the Modi government as pro-corporate, Mr Shah said, “It is for the first time that norms for compensation to farmers have been changed.” Taking a dig at Mr Gandhi, he said that a party whose leaders usurped land of farmers has no right to talk about farmers’ interest. In a strong rebuttal to Mr Gandhi’s allegation, he also mentioned that the NDA government has successfully earned `2 lakh crore for the exchequer through auction of coal blocks while it was the UPA in power ...

Amit Shah slams Congress, says it has no 'moral right' to talk about farmers 25.4.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday hit back at Congress President Sonia Gandhi for targeting the Narendra Modi government for being "pro-corporate", saying it was the UPA government which had handed over mines to corporates while the present dispensation had secured over Rs 3 lakh crore through auction of coal mines and spectrum. "Sonia ji, in your (Congress) regime, who handed over mines to corporates? The BJP government conducted auction of coal mines and gained Rs 2 lakh crore. Rs 1,09,000 crore was raised through spectrum auction. Now all this money is going to be used for the relief and welfare of the farmers of the country," he said at a party workers' rally in Jaipur. "We talk of farmers, but the opposition has no moral right for that because their family usurped huge chunks of land of farmers in Haryana and Rajasthan," he said. BJP had brought Sonia's son-in-law in the line of fire following allegations that he had acquired land in Haryana and Rajasthan through dubious means, a charge flatly ...

MSEDCL asked to pay up Rs 2,300 crore 25.4.2015 Asian Age: Mumbai
In its latest order, the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (Aptel) has asked Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (MSEDCL) to pay dues of Rs 2,300 crore to the defunct Ratnagiri Gas and Power Limited (RGPPL), which owns Dabhol power plant. The cost will ultimately put the burden on the MSEDCL consumers. However, the MSEDCL has decided to appeal in the apex court against the Aptel order. In its order dated April 22, the Aptel has said, “The appellant (MSEDCL) is under obligation to pay capacity charges to respondent No. 2 (RGPPL), power generating company, even if the appellant does not give consent to GSA/GTA (Gas Supply/ Transportation Agreement) because the appellant in place of natural gas or fuel is using R–LNG (primary fuel).” The Aptel has also dismissed MSEDCL’s appeal to waive its dues to RGPPL. Dabhol was getting natural gas supply from Reliance’s Krishna-Godavari Basin, which stopped in 2013. This led to closure of units one by one. The MSEDCL stopped paying RGPPL from June 2013 ...
