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

Former Union Minister Sharad Yadav has described Tejashwi Yadav as the leader of the opposition and said that the largest political party of Bihar was the RJD. Sharad Yadav’s statement comes as a relief to the proposed mahagathbandhan, the term coined in Bihar during the 2015 assembly election for the RJD-JD(U) alliance, which will now be used to refer to the platform the RJD will share with JD(U)’s breakaway faction led by Sharad Yadav and Upendra Kusjhwaha’s RLSP.

Sharad Yadav said further, “I am no face in the assembly election.” This serves the ambition of Tejashwi Yadav well who wishes to be the chief minister of Bihar as his father Lalu Yadav, being convicted of the fodder scam, cannot contest in elections.

Sharad Yadav denied the possibility of a third front and said,”All our effort is to win the fight with a united opposition.”

The veteran said, “I have spoken also to Lalu Prasad Yadav regarding opposition solidarity and soon this will be resolved too.”

Sharad dumps third front; Kushwaha, Manjhi left in lurch

RLSP chief and former Union Minister Kushwaha had recently proposed to the mahagathbandhan that veteran socialist leader Sharad Yadav would be projected as the face of the grand alliance in the Bihar assembly election to be held later this year.

Jitan Ram Manjhi, Kushwaha, Sharad Yadav and Mukesh Sahni had a separate, secret meeting in Patna before today’s development. The meeting reportedly rekindled the participants’ hope to float an ever-elusive third front.

The RJD and INC stayed away from that meeting.

After the meeting, Manjhi had said, “If everyone does not contest the election together in an alliance, a situation like the Lok Sabha election will happen. The result of opposition parties not coming together was their big defeat in May-June 2019, but when everyone showed solidarity in Jharkhand, the alliance won the election.”
