Narendra Modi, Prime Minister :
I bow to the great Lokmanya Tilak on his Jayanti.
His thoughts and principles are more relevant than ever before in the present circumstances, when 130 crore Indians have decided to build an Aatmanirbhar Bharat that is economically prosperous and socially progressive.
Lokmanya Tilak was a firm believer in Indian values and ethos. His views on subjects such as education and women empowerment continue to motivate several people.
He was an institution builder, nurturing many top-quality institutions which have done pioneering work over the years.
PM Narendra Modi:
Delighted to meet President-Elect of the 76th UNGA and FM of Maldives H.E. Abdulla Shahid.
I wish him all success during his “Presidency of Hope”.
Also reiterated India’s commitment to Maldives, as a key pillar of our “Neighborhood First” policy.
Rahul Gandhi – Former Congress President’s interaction with Media. Excerpts via INC India:
Pegasus is a weapon that is supposed to be used against terrorists.
The PM & HM have used this weapon against the Indian state & against our institutions.
The only word for this is treason. This has to be investigated & the HM has to resign
The PM & HM have used Pegasus as a weapon against the Indian state. They have used it – politically, – to scuttle probes, – against Supreme Court
Are you allowed to buy Pegasus? Can I buy Pegasus?
Pegasus has to be authorised by the nation state. The file has to be signed at the minimum by the Home Minister, probably by the Prime Minister.
Pegasus is sold from govt to govt.
Every single phone of mine is tapped.
IB people call me & say please be aware, we are tapping your phone.
My security people tell me they have to report to their seniors everything I say.
So I am under no pretentions & I do not get intimidated

Today in Parliament Library I asked for the Budget for India’s National Security Council Secretariat.
I asked allocation for three years :
2014-15: Rs.44 cr;
2016-17: Rs.33 cr; &
2017-18: Rs. 333 cr;
Why this jump?
Because a new Head was added: “Cyber Security R&D” ?????
Modi government spokesperson should clarify where the additional Rs 300 crores of the Rs.333 crore allotted actually go?
