HC relief for bank employee transferred due to RSS ties

IndiaTimes Saturday, 13 January 2024
The Himachal Pradesh high court has stayed the transfer orders of a bank employee, who was allegedly shifted for being a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). A division bench comprising Chief Justice M S Ramachandra Rao and Justice Jyotsna Rewal Dua, during the preliminary hearing of the case, observed that the applicant was transferred only because he was a member of the RSS. The court held that prima-facie the transfer order appeared to be patently arbitrary, illegal and violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of India.

Rahul Gandhi's 'Shakti' Slip: BJP latches on, Rocky Political Journey Amid Elections for Cong?

Rahul Gandhi's recent statement at the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra's finale in Mumbai sparked controversy. While attempting to criticise BJP's tactics, his mention of "Shakti" in Hindu dharma was perceived differently, leading to BJP using it against Congress and Rahul. Congress defended Gandhi, attributing his words to BJP's power through RSS and 'Manuvaad.' However, the incident highlights the importance of careful language in political discourse, especially during elections, to avoid unintended consequences and misinterpretations. #RahulGandhi #BJPvsCongress #LanguageMatters #HinduDharma #ShaktiRow ~HT.97~PR.282~
