PM Modi to observe day-long fast against Parliament disruption

Share

This came as an embarrassment for the BJP as the party had three days back condemned the Congress when some of its leaders were seen eating at a restaurant prior to a fast on Monday.

Naik, who was participating in a day-long Save Democracy fast at Azad Maidan, which is a part of the BJP's nationwide protest against the recent Parliament washout, said that all the BJP MPs have already chose to forego their salaries and allowances for 23 days due to the budget session disaster.

BJP MPs have been asked to spend at least a night in one such village, while Union ministers will spend two nights in different parts of the country during the exercise.

"I've been deeply, deeply disturbed by the rape case in Kathua and all the recent rape cases that have happened on children", she added. The former Maharashtra Chief Minister quit the Congress in September previous year alleging that the state leadership had sidelined him.

In the preseason game that matters the most, the Panthers have drawn a tough opponent in the reigning AFC Champion Patriots. The NFL announced the 2018 preseason schedule earlier today and the Patriots preseason slate has several familiar foes.

Rahul Gandhi joined the protest around midnight.

After facing strident criticism from the opposition on Dalit issues, the BJP is also grappling with a rising voice of discontent among its own MPs belonging to the Scheduled Castes in Uttar Pradesh. The party leader said the Lok Sabha bypoll debacle of Gorakhpur and Phulpur also figured in the meeting.

Lekhi said the woman counsel appearing for the Kathua rape victim was being pressurised not to appear in the case. "They are not showing you the direction the country is going in", Shah said amid cheers from hundreds of party workers. The state government has taken action against the erring doctors and they have been suspended. The death of 39 Indians in Mosul also became a point of contention between the government and opposition parties.

Jammu Bandh reflects the great anger of the people against the failure of BJP in particular and the overall functioning of the present PDP-BJP government in the State which has vitiated the atmosphere of age old peace and religious harmony in the pluralistic Jammu region.
