Capt Amarinder Singh:
Stop talking about secularism Harish Rawat ji.
Don’t forget Congress took in Navjot Singh Sidhu after he was with BJP for 14 years.
And where did Nana Patole and Revnath Reddy come from if not RSS?
And Pargat Singh was with Akali Dal for 4 years!’
And what are you doing with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra?
Or are you saying Harish RawatJi that it’s ok to join forces with so-called communal parties as long as it suits INCIndia purpose.
What’s this if not sheer political opportunism?
Today you’re accusing me of helping my rival Akali Dal for 4 and a half years Harish Rawat ji. Is that why you think I’ve been fighting court cases against them for the last 10 years? And why I’ve won Congress all elections in Punjab since 2017?
You’re apprehension I’ll damage Congress interests in Punjab. Fact is Harish Rawat ji, the party has damaged its own interests by not trusting me and giving Congress into the hands of an unstable person like Sidhu who’s only loyal to himself

IMF’s Chief Economist Gita Gopinath will return to Harvard to resume teaching.P CHidambaram – Former Union Finance minister
I hope the PM will not say ‘Don’t return to Harvard, return to hard work’.
Teaching at Harvard — and studying too — is hard work.
Thank you Dr Gita Gopinath for your hard and distinguished work at IMF for three years.
P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:
The new Quad consists of four countries that reflect the pluralism of the world US (secular, but mainly Christian), India (secular, but mainly Hindu), Israel (Jewish) and the UAE (Islamic)
If pluralism can be harnessed for the good of the world, can it not be harnessed for the good of India?
The Modi government subscribes to pluralism in the world but supports majoritarianism in India!
