Power Grid says fear of tripping at 9:09 PM on 5 April baseless

Once the Ministry of Power made its statement, the critics cut a sorry figure, with politicians asking why the prime minister's statements call for clarifications and 'experts' saying this was avoidable

Terrorist links of Tablighi Jamaat include Masood Azhar, Osama bin Laden

Maulana Masood Azhar, the founder of the terrorist group Harkat ul Mujahideen which underwent several name changes to finally become Jaish-e-Mohammed, is not only a member of the Tablighi Jamaat but also a once close associate of Osama bin Laden

The political stir in Maharashtra has intensified since Rahul Gandhi’s insinuation about VD Savarkar while attacking the Narendra Modi government from Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan. While the Shiv Sena objected to his statement, with spokesman Sanjay Raut advising the INC dynast to read the freedom fighter’s book, Savarkar’s grandson Ranjit has asked the Union government to take action against the INC leader.

The coalition named Maha Vikas Aghadi of Shiv Sena, NCP and INC was formed in Maharashtra after a lot of deliberations, as UPA chairperson and INC president Sonia Gandhi was initially not willing to go with an ideologically right-wing party. But even as she finally turned around for the sake of power, the impact of her son Rahul Gandhi’s remarks on Shiv Sena hero Savarkar is rocking the State government.

When senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar was asked about it, he said, “Uddhav ji, Sonia ji and Pawar saheb are mature people. Together they will make the right decision.”

Veer Savarkar’s grandson Ranjit said Rahul Gandhi’s statement ‘my name is not Rahul Savarkar’ was not acceptable. He said, “No one can say derogatory words about him (Veer Savarkar). The government should take slap Rahul Gandhi with criminal charges.”

Ranjit Savarkar has advised Uddhav Thackeray, who heads the Shiv Sena government of Maharashtra, to sack INC ministers from his Cabinet after Rahul Gandhi’s statement and run a minority government, adding that the BJP would not vote against his government.

Taking a position that is neither here nor there, senior NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal said on Rahul Gandhi’s statement, “When it comes to big personalities, not everyone agrees on everything. Rahul ji has his views on Savarkar. Savarkar had said that cow was not our mother but BJP says so. Savarkar’s views were knowledgeable, but will the BJP accept it? They will never do it.”

On the contentious statement by the INC’s ageless wonder, RSS leader Indresh Kumar said, “The British were afraid of Savarkar. That’s why the British courts sentenced him for life twice. Rahul can never be Savarkar. He will have to take many births to become Savarkar, but even then he will not be able to be like him (Savarkar).”

Kumar added, “The name ‘Gandhi’ associated with Rahul is a disrespect to the word Gandhi. They should not disrespect Gandhi by using the surname ‘Gandhi’. The nation is hurt because of his statement.”
