Don’t try to analyze karma because you cannot fathom the depth of karma. Just do your duty and keep moving ahead with love and prayer in your heart :
KC Venugopal – General Secretary, Congress:
Congress President has asked the Congress ruled states to explore the possibilities to pass laws in their states under Article 254(2) of the constitution which allows the state legislatures to pass a law to override a Central law which then comes for President Assent.
This would enable the states to negate the unacceptable anti-farmers’ provisions in the three draconian Agricultural laws including the abolition of MSP and disruption of APMCs in Congress ruled states & alleviate the farmers from the grave injustice done by the Central Govt.
Randeep Singh Surjewala, General Secretary, Congress :
Dear B.S.Yediyurappa ji,
Instead of banning the Farmer’s Karnataka Bandh, ‘ban’ & ‘banish’ the anti farmer-labourer mindset.
Withdraw the law & apologise for the blatant sell out by BJP on Land Reforms Bill.
Repeal the draconian amendments to APMC Act.
This is ur litmus test!
Capt Amarinder Singh – Chief Minister, Punjab:
I along with my colleagues from Punjab Congress held a protest against Centre’s Anti-Farmer Laws at Khatkar Kalan in SBS Nagar.
Most of our farmers are small & marginal who will be severely impacted by these legislations.
We stand by Punjab’s farmers & will do everything to oppose it.
Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Today, on Shaheed-e-Azam Sardar Bhagat Singh’s 113th birth anniversary, his secular vision & egalitarian ideology are even more relevant.
His secular & socialist ideas will save our country at a time when its basic secular fabric has come under severe strain.
Punjab CM’s claim of farmers’ struggle in Punjab turning violent is a ploy to weaken the peaceful movement.
I urge Punjab unit of BJP, all political parties & organisations to join hands & save our farmers.
Agri economy needs a boost & SAD will follow any effort in this direction.
The state govt has prepared guidelines to restart restaurant operations & submitted to concerned authorities.
Once finalised, a decision to reopen restaurants will be taken, stated Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray in a meeting with representatives of restaurant business associations.
Dr Abhishek Singhvi National Spokesperson, Congress :
Akali Dal walking away from BJP is a sureshot sign of the future.
It’s not a hopeful tweet but an observant one.
Allies are realizing that the diktat of his highness will always preceed larger national interests.
What an absolutely incredible win for Rajasthan Royals! I’ve known Sanju Samson for a decade & told him when he was 14 that he would one day be the next MS Dhoni. Well, that day is here. After his two amazing innings in this IPL you know a world class player has arrived.Shashi tharoor
What a game ..that’s why this is the best league in the world … amazing talent on displaySourav ganguly
Terrific batting by Rajasthan Royals batsmen Smith, Sanju & Tewatia to chase this mega total. They kept their cool and accelerated beautifully. Surprised how the Kings IX Punjab fast bowlers didn’t bowl many yorkers and also failed to use M Ashwin enough.Sachin Tendulkar

Aaditya Thackeray – Minister, Maharashtra Govt.:
This afternoon, the Environment Dept and MPCB met with MoS Sanjay Bansode ji and me to discuss our plans to launch a campaign for green initiatives in Maharashtra to fight climate change.
We want to make it into a public habit rather than just a movement.

PM Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat, excerpts via PMO India:
PM Narendra Modi begins this month’s Mann Ki Baat by talking about story telling, which has been a part of our nation for centuries.
PM Narendra Modi narrates an anecdote from his life, on the subject of story telling.
India has a glorious tradition of story telling. These days, stories relating to science are gaining popularity. The PM said
All across India, there are many Indians making story telling popular.
As a family, set aside some time for story telling. This will be a wonderful experience.
The same way, highlight stories relating to the great women and men who have made India proud, said PM Modi
India is very proud of its farmers. Farmers are playing a major role in the efforts to build an Aatmanirbhar Bharat.
Had we followed the essence of Bapu’s economic philosophy, we would never have to be working to build an Aatmanirbhar Bharat now. It would have happened much earlier, said PM Modi.
Pm paid tributes to Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia Ji.
She hailed from a Royal Family and devoted herself to public service. She was blessed with compassion.
PM Narendra Modi shares an anecdote from the early 1990s of his interaction with Rajmata Ji.
Arvind Panagariya – Former Vice Chairman, NITI Aayog:
Those who thought PM Narendra Modi is not a reformist PM must be stunned by the reforms of last 2 weeks.
The PM has brought growth & development friendly changes that were due for more than two decades in: Medical Education, Agriculture & Labor Laws.
In medical education, the Parliament passed National Commission for Homeopathy Bill and National Commission for Indian System of Medicine Bill.
Simultaneously, the government replaced Medical Council of India by National Medical Commission.
In agriculture, one new law frees the farmer to sell his produce where he wants, to whom he wants; another frees him to sell produce to processors and exporters at an assured price; and a third creates greater certainty of prices and storage of produce.
In labor, four new codes replace 29 antiquated labor laws.
The new codes reduce inspector raj and compliance burden, create superior environment for the creation of well-paid jobs & growth of the formal sector, and empower women to do night shifts.
PM Narendra Modi:
Jaswant Singh Ji served our nation diligently, first as a soldier and later during his long association with politics.
During Atal Ji’s Government, he handled crucial portfolios and left a strong mark in the worlds of finance, defence and external affairs.
Saddened by his demise.
Jaswant Singh Ji will be remembered for his unique perspective on matters of politics and society. He also contributed to the strengthening of the BJP.
I will always remember our interactions. Condolences to his family and supporters. Om Shanti.
Spoke to Shri Manvendra Singh and expressed condolences on the unfortunate demise of Shri Jaswant Singh Ji.
True to his nature, Jaswant Ji fought his illness with immense courage for the last six years.
Narendra Modi – Prime Minister:
It is indeed a happy day, President @ibusolih!
Our dream of a direct ferry service between India and Maldives is now a reality.
I have no doubt that it will promote bilateral trade and boost our economies.
The Maldives-India friendship will continue to strengthen.
Ibrahim Mohamed Solih – President of the Republic of Maldives:
Our thanks to PM Narendra Modi and Govt of India as the Maldives-India Cargo Ferry Service goes on its maiden voyage today between Kulhudhuffushi, Malé and South India.
The ferry would further strengthen Maldives India friendship and bring greater prosperity to our communities.
- Loknayak JP and Nanaji Deshmukh shared a close bond.
- Nanaji was a devout follower of JP and his affection was such that when JP was attacked, he came in the way and bore the brunt of that attack.
- Paid tributes to these two greats during Mann Ki Baat
Her life was all about helping the poor and needy. She was caring.
Shared an anecdote from the Ekta Yatra, which shows Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia’s compassionate personality.
Mann Ki Baat:
- There’s a Banana Farmer Produce Company in Theni, Tamil Nadu, which in actuality is a group of farmers coming together.
- This group bought tonnes of vegetables, fruits and bananas from local villages.
- With no middlemen, both the buyers and sellers benefited.
Amit Shah – Union Home Minister:
- Inaugurated ‘Destination North East 2020’ via video conferencing.
- India is incomplete and unimaginable without the vibrant and diverse culture of our North East region.
- This fest will play a pivotal role in promoting tourism and culture of the North East all over the nation.
Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
I call upon all political parties & organisations to close ranks & protect the interests of farmers, farm labour & farm produce traders in the country.
Akali Dal will not flinch from its ideals. It’s for the cause of farmers’ welfare we broke alliance with BJP-led NDA.
The more the Centre tries to oppress Punjabis, the more determined we will become.
We are determined to resist the new Farm Bills which can be disastrous for the economy & social stability.
Capt Amarinder Singh should come out of his hiding & issue an ordinance to declare Punjab a mandi & repeal the state’s APMC Act.
He went back on all other promises made on oath & fulfilled the only clause which was against farmers & pro corporate sharks.
