November Rahul had said that he would not rest till the five-slab "Gabbar Singh Tax" was converted into the "Goods and Services Tax" with an 18 percent cap "With five slabs it is the Gabbar Singh Tax but with one tax it is the GST Neither Gujarat nor India needs the Gabbar Singh Tax The Congress had clearly told the BJP that there should be one tax with an 18-per cent cap and a simple tax (at that)" Gandhi had said Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi (left) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi Agencies "This Gabbar Singh Tax is looting the small people of this country This Gabbar Singh Tax is only aimed at breaking the back of the small and medium scale industries of Gujarat and (the rest of) the country" he had added Modi retaliated to this remark by saying that a recently emerged "economist" was propagating a "grand stupid thought" by suggesting that GST rate be capped at 18 percent Hardik Patel’s response to the ‘sex CD’ issue Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel came up with a befitting reply to a CD which had video clips allegedly showing his sexual escapades In November he had said that the people of Gujarat want to see what the BJP has done in 23 years rather than the video of a 23-year-old youth ‘Aurangzeb raj’ During an election rally in Gujarat’s Valsad Modi had called Congress’ process of electing its party president ‘Aurangzeb raj’ "Mani Shankar Aiyar said ‘did elections happen during Mughal rule After Jehangir Shahjahan came was any election held After Shahjahan it was understood Aurangzeb will be the leader’ So Congress accepts it is a family party We don’t want this Aurangzeb rule" ANI had quoted Modi as saying The ‘real’ Hindutva party Perhaps taking inspiration from The Real Slim Shady by Eminem Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday found a unique way to dismiss Rahul’s temple visits He had said that BJP was the original Hindutva party and Congress was just a "clone" "We (BJP) are linked to Hinduism if people imitate us then what can we do But the basic principle is if the original is available why would people go for a clone" Jaitley had said while replying to questions about Gandhi’s temple visits Congress’ ‘chaiwala’ barb Showing that it had learnt nothing from Sonia Gandhi’s ‘maut ka saudagar’ remark against Modi Congress shot itself in the foot when the party’s youth wing’s online magazine Yuva Desh tweeted out a meme mocking Modi’s past as a tea-seller Congress’ online magazine tweets derogatory meme attacking PM Modi deletes later Read @ANI story | https://tco/4uBvxWHfBM pictwittercom/JhH82acg5S — ANI Digital (@ani_digital) November 21 2017 The magazine later withdrew the tweet with the meme but the damage was already done BJP’s national spokesperson Sambit Patra recalled the past ‘maut ka saudagar’ jibe and warned the Congress of electoral consequences of abusing the prime minister In fact BJP leaders — including Amit Shah and Jaitley — reacted by tuning in to Modi’s radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’ while having tea with people across Gujarat Actor-turned-politician Paresh Rawal took this mudslinging a step further by tweeting that "our chaiwala is any day better than your bar-wala" ‘Rome rajya’ If the Congress has not learnt anything from the ‘maut ka saudagar’ remark the BJP has also clearly not learnt anything from its bad habit of trying to link Congress with Italy BJP MP Virendra Singh Mast on Wednesday described the upcoming Gujarat polls as a battle between "Ram rajya" and "Rome rajya" claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi symbolised the former "The Gujarat polls are a contest between ‘Ram rajya and Rome rajya’ Modi is the symbol of ‘Ram rajya’ in our times The BJP will certainly win" he had said Modi’s new motto is ‘na bolunga na bolne dunga’: Rahul While criticising the Modi government during a rally in Gujarat towards the end of November Rahul Gandhi had said that Modi’s new motto was ‘no bolunga na bolne dunga’ He had also said that while Modi only liked talking about his own ‘Mann ki Baat’ Congress wanted to listen to the people’s mann ki baat Adityanath’s dig at Congress afterUttar Pradesh civic poll results On 1 December Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had taken a dig at the Congress and said the party which was daydreaming of winning the Gujarat Assembly polls has failed to even open an account in the Uttar Pradesh municipal corporation polls "Jo Gujarat jeetne ka sapna dekh rahe hain unka yahan Amethi mein bhi soopda saaf ho gaya hai" he had said ridiculing the Congress which lost even in the party pocket borough of Amethi Shiv Sena praising Rahul Gandhi One of the most stinging remarks against the BJP came from its ally Shiv Sena On Wednesday the party had said that Gujarat polls had transformed Rahul Gandhi into a leader and that the Congress vice-president’s temple visits was a "win for Hindutva" "The election which is touted by the BJP to be a sure win seems to have tired Prime Minister Narendra Modi as it has turned Rahul Gandhi into a leader" the Sena a long-time but often bickering partner of the BJP had said in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana Those opposing bullet train project can take bullock carts: Modi While lashing out at Congress for its criticism of the Rs 11 lakh crore bullet train project Modi had said "Those opposing the bullet train project should travel on bullock carts We won’t mind" He had also said that the UPA government under Manmohan Singh also wanted the project but could not get it "The NDA government got it at a negligible price So the Congress didn’t like that My only grievance against the Congress is that if they could not achieve anything why does it pain them when someone else does it" the prime minister had said Rahul’s question to Modi about safety of women in Gujarat On Sunday Rahul had accused Modi of making fake promises to the women of Gujarat The Congress leader had pointed out that Gujarat was ranked third in human trafficking fifth in acid attacks on women and 10th in rape of minor girls "Why does Gujarat lag behind at 20th place in girl child education" he had asked pointing out that gross enrollment ratio of girl child is at 205 against national average of 235 (higher education) With inputs from PTI” For all the latest Delhi News, He was arrested in December last year in a murder case in Agra,

(Source: AP) Top News Should an age-defying Roger Federer win the US Open and capture his third grand slam title of the year it would go down as one of the wondrous chapters in tennis a trio of pundits said on Thursday The rejuvenated 36-year-old Swiss who has said winning a third grand slam in 2017 would “be a joke” will be among the favourites at Flushing Meadows where he is seeded third for the Aug 28-Sept 10 US Open “If Federer were to win the Open if he’s not the athlete of the year on every kind of major publication it will be the greatest injustice I’ve ever seen for tennis” former men’s coach and player Brad Gilbert said on an ESPN conference call “It would be his greatest year without a doubt He’s pushing the limits to what a 36 year old can do that we’ve ever seen in tennis and it’s just been a pleasure to watch” The former world number one has won three grand slams in a calendar year three times before but not since 2007 Prior to this year Federer’s last grand slam triumph had been at Wimbledon in 2012 In the years that followed many questioned whether the Swiss maestro would win another But Federer who missed last year’s US Open as part of a six-month layoff to heal his knee proved his critics wrong as he upped his record grand slam total to 19 with wins at this year’s Australian Open and Wimbledon He skipped the French Open where he won once before in 2009 as part of a calculated decision to avoid playing on clay this season in a bid to prolong a career “The only thing you can say that’s a negative in any way is that he didn’t play on clay” said former US Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe “But certainly at his age to do what he’s done if he were to win three majors is off the charts” No man has as many grand slams as Federer’s 19 a whopping total that has him four clear of his closest pursuer — Spain’s Rafa Nadal While it is difficult to compare players from different generations anyone who does not consider Federer the GOAT — an acronym commonly used for the greatest of all-time — would have a hard time arguing their case should he be the last man standing in New York “If he wins the US and he wins three majors out of four I think it ends once and for all the GOAT conversation” said Tennis Hall of Famer Cliff Drysdale a former player on the men’s tour “Without it I still think he’s the greatest player that ever played but that would certainly consolidate his position in my mind as the best player to have played the sport of tennis” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by
