Harsimrat Kaur Badal – Former Union Minister :
It is a fact that Working Group on Consumer Affairs headed by then Gujarat CM Narendra Modi ji recommended protection of farmer interest by ensuring there was no farmer – trader transaction below MSP. What has changed since then ?
The centre should tell why Jan 26 intelligence failure not probed. Why those who sacrificed most for national flag are being targeted?
The Kesri Nishan being vilified is same which has always been respected by the PM.
See the arrogance of BJP-led Centre. It vilified farmers as bicholiya, naxals & Khalistanis & refused to despatch any minister to seek their welfare.
State following policy of repression against agitating youth, social activists & journalists.

Today, I hosted Secretary of State for International Trade, Minister for Women & Equalities, UK, Liz Truss and Trade Commissioner Alan Gemmell at the BMC HQ where I took them for a heritage tour of the building.
We discussed trade, environment, tourism and cultural ties between Maharashtra and the United Kingdom and will strive to work together, unlock the potential between the two cultural hotspots of Mumbai and London. Cricket was definitely not discussed today!
Mayor Kishore Pednekar ji, Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal ji, Standing Committee Chairman Yashwant Jadhav ji and others were also present, given Mumbai’s age old cultural and historic relationship with the United Kingdom
Manish Tewari, MP, Former Union Minister:
Demanding the repeal of the draconian farm bills at all cost, we have submitted private member bills in Lok Sabha.

BJP National President JP Nadda flags off Poriborton Yatra from Chillar Math, Tarapith, West Bengal :
This Poriborton Yatra will awaken the people of Bengal and bring a real change in the state. We started this Yatra on 6th February from Nadia district’s Nabadwip, and in the evening, this yatra will reach Jhargram. It will motivate us to join the journey of development.
On one side, PM Modi provided food to 80 crore needy people across India, while on the other side, we have a govt that is stealing ration!
In the budget 2021, PM Modi has given the state of West Bengal Rs 25,000 crore for a highway between Kolkata and Siliguri.
Mamata does nothing herself – instead, she just keeps re-naming schemes started by PM Modi. She renamed Swachh Bharat as Nirmal Bangal, PM Awas Yojana as ‘Banglar Baadi’ and more.
Bringing nearly 21 lakh people under the social security pension umbrella is a massive achievement. PM Shri @narendramodi has also sent money to 3.5 crore people directly via DBT.
4.66 crore people of Bengal have not received health cover worth Rs 5 lakh under Ayushman Bharat. We assure that you will get all benefits of Ayushman Bharat as soon as you form a BJP government in the state.
TMC has resorted to corruption & earning money even from tragedy. PM Modi provided Rs 1,000 crore first & then Rs 1,750 crore as relief measures post-Amphan. TMC looted it and the HC ordered the Govt to get it audited from CAG. She went to the Hon’ble SC to challenge the order!
Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, Executive Chairperson of Biocon Limited :
This remarkable painting by a 9th Std boy Anujath Sindhu Vinaylal, in Thrissur, Kerala was painted to show his mother and other mothers doing various jobs.
Titled “ente ammayum ayalpakkathe ammamarum” is now the cover for the Kerala State’s 2021 Gender document.
Unfortunately, his mother passed away in 2019, months before he won recognition for this work.
It was his teacher who must be commended for sending his painting to the Govt.
