Kiku Sharda takes a dig at Gurmeet Ram Rahim SinghKiku Sharda takes a dig at Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh

Comedian Kiku Sharda, who was arrested last year for hurting the sentiments of the followers of Dera Sacha Sauda leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, on Wednesday took a dig at the convicted sect chief.

Kiku said justice was bound to happen in the case of Ram Rahim, who was convicted of for the rape of two female disciples and sentenced to 20 years’ rigorous imprisonment by a CBI special court on August 28.

At a song launch of the film “2016 The End” here, Kiku was present with co-actors Divyendu Sharma, Rahul Roy, Priya Banerjee, Narendra Jha and director Jaideep Chopra.

The event started with an interactive fun session between Divyendu and Kiku.

Kiku introduced Divyendu as “He was last seen in Toilet (referring to the film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’).”

Divyendu responded: “Yes, and you were living in jail.”

Kiku then quipped: “I went to jail for a day and now sir has gone for 20 years.”

Divyendu asked what Kiku wants to say by that.

He replied: “No, no, I am not taking any credit for that.”

When the media asked Kiku to comment on the CBI court’s decision about his imprisonment, he said: “Well, things have been proven in the court and now we all know what he did. Justice happened and it was bound to happen, it’s karma. But whatever violence took place (following Ram Rahim’s conviction) was really sad.”

“We shouldn’t have room for violence, we are peace-loving people, and we should stay in peace.”

No CBI influence exerted on SP chief, says Congress New Delhi: The Congress Monday rejected the Samajwadi Party’s charge that the CBI was used to influence its decision in the foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail and jobs quota bill.

“There is no question of any influence. There is no proof of it,” Congress spokesperson PC Chacko told reporters.

The Samajwadi Party Sunday alleged that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) was being used to trap its chief, Mulayam Singh Yadav.

The SP’s remark came ahead of the crucial vote on a bill Monday evening that promises reservation to the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and the Scheduled Tribes (STs) in job promotions.

Both the SP and the BSP had helped the ruling UPA win the parliament vote on FDI in retail.

“The SP and the BSP took their positions on FDI on their own. I don’t think a leader of Mulayam Singh Yadav’s stature would be afraid of CBI,” said Chacko.

Addressing the Ficci annual general meeting here, Sharma said the opposition parties should stop “daily discourse”, questioning government decisions and smelling a rat in every move.

He said it was in the domain of an elected government to take executive decisions which should not be dragged to Parliament and voted upon.

Ready for debate on govt decisions: Anand Sharma

“…Do I have to go on a daily basis to seek a certificate or endorsement of my thinking or approach or policy initiative or my decision as a minister of the Republic of India that I should be perpetually on a regular call at the doorstep of Nitin Gadkari or Prakash Karat. I can’t do that and why should I?,” he said.

Sharma’s criticism of the opposition parties, mainly the BJP, comes in the wake of a full-fledged discussion in Parliament on the government allowing 51 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail, under a rule which required voting in both the Houses. The opposition motions against the decision were negatived with the support of BSP and Samajwadi Party.

Earlier, addressing the same meeting, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj asked the industry bodies to hold a roundtable dialogue where government, opposition, industrialists, as well as CAG, CVC and CBI director are invited to discuss the national issues.

“A national dialogue will end this cynicism in the country,” Swaraj said.

Reacting to her suggestion, Sharma said, “I am willing to debate (with) the critics and the opponents any day without notice. Decide the place, decide the forum and I will come”.
