To come back in power, BJP has to build Ram Mandir: Hindu priest threatens to withdraw support

06 Jun,2018 Politics

NEW DELHI: There seems to be no end to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s troubles. On one hand, the Opposition is gaining footage with every passing poll, on the other hand, some of the party’s supporting organisations are pressing on the issue of Ram Mandir.

“If they (BJP) want to come in power again (in 2019) then they have to build the Ram Temple, else we will start a movement and make sure they are defeated,” Mahant Paramhans Das, a priest in Uttar Pradesh’s Chawani Temple told ANI.

Das’ was reacting to Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi statement.

Naqvi had earlier claimed that development will be the only issue for BJP in 2019 elections, further adding that Hindutva and Ram Mandir are not the primary issues for the saffron party.

“Today our government has made development as the mood of the nation. We have made development, a people’s movement. Prime Minister Modi has become ‘Vikas Nayak’ for the people of the country,” the minister said.

Naqvi further added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been the “biggest victim of political intolerance” and from Gujarat to Delhi “political conspiracies” were hatched against him by “frustrated forces” who have been defeated by the people of the country.

The Hindu Yuva Vahini, a youth wing formed by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, also reportedly threatened to cut off contact with BJP if building the Ram Mandir ceases to be one of the primary issues.

They added that the recent defeat in by-elections is due to the party’s slow move over the construction of Ram Mandir.

Paper Round: Christian Eriksen’s agent says ‘several’ clubs interested amid Barcelona speculation

Paper Round: Christian Eriksen’s agent says ‘several’ clubs interested amid Barcelona speculation

02 Jun,2018 Sports

Christian Eriksen’s agent hints at a move, Mauricio Pochettino emerges as Real Madrid’s target, Joachim Low turns them down, and William Carvalho is available.

Eriksen’s agent suggests he could leave

Christian Eriksen’s agent has spoken of intherest in his client from European clubs. The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is considering his future, says his agent Martin Schoots: “The only thing I can say is that concerning the interest of several clubs in Christian is that we prefer not to comment.” Barcelona are known to be interested in the 26-year-old Danish international, but Spurs are currently unwilling to sell.

Paper Round’s view: Eriksen’s progress under Mauricio Pochettino is testament to the hard work of the player, and of the ability of Pochettino to improve players in every position. At 26, and on a relatively low wage of £70,000 a week, it would be no surprise if his agent is agitating for a significant increase in his wages before forcing through one big move before he hits 30 in the future.

Pochettino reluctant to turn down Real Madrid

Real Madrid have made Mauricio Pochettino their number one target to replace Zinedine Zidane. Zidane announced his departure from the club after winning his third consecutive Champions League, and the Argentine at Spurs has made it clear he would entertain an offer. He was in Spain, promoting his book, and when asked about the possibility, said: “When Real Madrid call you, you have to listen to them.”

Paper Round’s view: Nobody could blame Mauricio Pochettino for wanting to join Real Madrid. He has said he would not manage Barcelona, so this is the biggest job that he could ever be offered. The amount of money available, and the quality of the team to manage, would be far better than offered by Daniel Levy at Spurs. Pochettino has hinted at frustrations with the club’s ambition, so this might be a move that makes sense for the manager.

Low denies Real interest

One manager who almost certainly won’t be taking over at Real Madrid is German national manager, Joachim Low. The 58-year-old was asked about the possibility of a move to club management with Real, and he said: “You can rule me out completely. For me it is not an issue, I am focused now on the World Cup. For sure Real Madrid will find a good replacement.”

Paper Round’s view: Low has just signed another four-year contract with the German side, so it would be a huge change of heart if he were suddenly to depart after the World Cup. There appears to be plenty of promise in the next generation of German footballers, who are already being brought on by Low. It would be no surprise if he enjoyed more success with the side while under less pressure than he would find himself under in Spain.

Carvalho nears exit at Sporting

It appears that William Carvalho is close to leaving Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon. The 26-year-old midfielder looked poised to join West Ham last summer before the move broke down. However, a transfer to Everton could be on the cards, as the Portuguese international has previously played for their new boss, Marco Silva. Sporting and the player’s representatives are said to be working on a transfer away for Carvalho.

Paper Round’s view: Carvalho looked set for big things at the start of his career, when he was linked with Arsenal and Manchester United. The stature of the clubs he has been linked with has shifted down notably, and now it is reported that Sporting want to sell. Whether that is because the club need the money or not, there are question marks over whether he has stagnated in Portugal.
