Foreigners who attended Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz to be tried for violating visa rule

Sirf News has accessed from the police the records of many Tablighi Jamaat associates who have returned to or been to the Northeast and non-Muslims who passed through the area and returned to the states of the region

Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

New Delhi — Minister for Chemicals & Fertilisers and Parliamentary Affairs Ananthkumar held a detailed discussion with Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu for the opening of Janaushadhi Kendras at railway stations and other railway establishments here today. Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and Chemicals & Fertilisers Mansukh Lal Mandaviya was also present on the occasion.

Assuring firm support to the PMBJP scheme from Ministry of Railways’ side, Prabhu informed the media persons that an in-principle decision to open Janaushadhi Kendras at railway stations and other railway establishments has been taken during today’s discussions. Railways being the largest employer in India, the amalgamation of efforts between the 2 ministries for the percolation of generic drugs would increase their accessibility to the common man manifold, Prabhu added.

Briefing the media on the outcome of the meeting, Ananthkumar informed that the meeting was very fruitful and Prabhu has extended full support from Railways to take ahead the vision of the Prime Minister. “We will utilise the vast Railway Infrastructure to increase accessibility of cheap, quality generic drugs for the common man,” said Ananthkumar.

Further, Ananthkumar said that the Union government was pursuing in full force the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make cheap and quality medicines accessible to all citizens of the country. The Minister added that currently over 1600 Janaushadhi Kendras have been opened in over 450 districts across India under the Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana (PMBJP) and all the drugs available at these stores meet the WHO GMP (good manufacturing practices) benchmarks.

The ministers have directed senior officers of the 2 ministries to work out the modalities and the strategy for roll out of the plan in detail. Other dignitaries present on the occasion were Jai Priye Prakash, Secretary, Department of Pharmaceuticals, Mohd Jamshed, Member Traffic, Railway Board, Biplab Chatterjee, CEO Bureau of Pharma PSUs in India (BPPI) — the implementing agency for PMBJP, along with other senior officers of the 2 ministries.
