India is no longer a democratic country tweets Rahul Gandhi

(Asian News Hub) – Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday slammed the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said that India was no longer a democratic country.

“India is no longer a democratic country,” Rahul Gandhi said in his tweet as he shared a news clipping which read ‘India now as autocratic as Pakistan, worse than Bangladesh: Sweden institute’s Democracy Report’.

The Wayanad MP has been consistently targeting the government over the rising fuel prices, farm laws and other issues. Recently, Rahul Gandhi accused the Modi government of pushing people in the swamp of price rise just to earn taxes.


On the 100th day of farmers protest on March 5, Rahul Gandhi said that the government will have to repeal the three agriculture laws under any circumstances.


“Those who wait patiently after sowing seeds, they are not afraid of months-long wait or bad weather. The three farm laws have to be repealed,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.


Participating in the debate on the Union Budget in Lok Sabha on February 11, he had alleged that these legislations would damage the country’s food security system and also “break the spine of farmers” and that the country is being run by only four people with a ‘Hum do, Hamare do’ approach.

Says Crackdown on bikers highly condemnable, can prove counter-productive for Govt; No development taking place in J&K, Poverty, unemployment touching new heights

(Asian News Hub) – Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad while expressing his concern over the spate of selected killings Wednesday stated that those involved in the act should be arrested to expose the real plans.

He, however, said that the intense frisking and massive crackdown on the bikers was causing huge inconveniences to the general public.

“I met people of almost 11 districts and all have condemned the killing of non-locals and selected killings,” he told reporters as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) at his Hyderpora residence in Srinagar.

He said that there is no development taking place in J&K as construction material has become very costly and poverty is at its peak across in Kashmir as well as Jammu region. “Unemployment is touching new heights and people are becoming poorer day by day,” he said, adding that the only solution to the problem was restoration of statehood and to ensure elected government.

“The job of bureaucrats is to check and clear files and projects etc. Politician has a separate responsibility that of serving people on ground,” he said. “Hoping that J&K would prosper without elected government is the big mistake. We can’t even wait till militancy ends and development would take place. The solution is that while curbing militancy, development must go on as well.”

He said due to steep rise in petrol, majority of people prefer two-wheelers like scooters and bikes but unfortunately, massive crackdown on bikers is highly condemnable. “This will further cause anger among the masses against government. Instead of taking pro-people steps, government is causing huge inconvenience for the general public,” Azad said. “We need to create a peaceful environment so that tourists arrive and people live in peace. Government must take positive steps in that direction.”

(Asian News Hub) – In a warning to Islamabad, Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday said there was a time when there used to be talks when India’s border came under attack. But now, India gives a befitting reply to attacks, the home minister said in Goa as he remembered 2016’s surgical strike, Hindustan times reported.

“Surgical strike under PM Modi and former defence minister Manohar Parrikar was an important step. We sent out a message that no one can disturb India’s borders. There was a time for talks, But now is the time to reciprocate,” Shah said remembering the contribution of Goa’s Manohar Parrikar as the defence minister. The home minister was speaking at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the National Forensic Sciences University in Goa.

“When the militants attacked Poonch, India gave a befitting reply in the form of surgical strike. That was the beginning of a new chapter when India conveyed the message that it will give a reply in the same language,” Amit Shah said as per Hindustan times.

The home minister’s message comes at a time when militant activities have seen an uptick in J&K and many civilians have been killed in the last few days.

The rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan is being globally seen as an impetus to terror activities, against which India has issued stern messages on international platforms as well.

On September 229, 2016, the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control, in a response to the terrorist attack on Uri.
