Kapil Sibal invokes Nehru to target Centre on Galwan Valley

Kapil Sibal Speech

New Delhi, July 4 : While tension between India and China continues to be high, the bickering between the ruling BJP and the main opposition Congress is also no less.

Taking recourse to history, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said Nehru was unrelenting on China drawing its own LAC and claimed that China during his time accepted that the Galwan Valley belongs to India.

“The term, Line of Actual Control, or LAC, was coined by Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai in 1956 and then repeated in 1959, and during and following the 1962 war. After China”s invasion of India, Zhou Enlai sent Nehru a letter asking India to accept the 1959 Chinese claim line and saying China was willing to withdraw 20 kms from this claim line,” said the Congress on Saturday.

It went on to claim, “In response, Nehru”s letter of November 4 said Zhou”s proposal was nothing short of a victor”s diktat.”

The Congress on Saturday quoted Nehru where he wrote, “The demand for India to accept the Chinese 1959 line is a demand to which India will never submit whatever the consequences and, however, long and hard the struggle may be.”

Taking a sharp jibe at the Centre, the Congress alleged that the Chinese who in the 1959 line clearly depicted the entire Galwan Valley in India has now formally laid claim for the first time ever to the “entire Galwan Valley.”

This attack comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while at Leh, said in a clear warning to China without naming it, “Age of expansionism is over.”

Addressing India”s armed forces, he said, “Age of expansionism is over, this is the age of development. History has been witness that expansionist forces have either lost or were forced to go back.”

This assertion by the Indian Prime Minister in the Ladakh region was extremely significant given the ongoing tension at the border with China in eastern Ladakh, barely 18 days after a violent standoff.

Accepted Bihar request for CBI probe into Sushant’s death: Centre told Supreme Court

Rhea Chakraborty Sushant

The government has accepted the request by the Bihar government for the Central Bureau of Investigation probe into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, the Centre’s senior second-most law officer Tushar Mehta told the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta made the submission during the hearing of a plea by actor Rhea Chakraborty seeking transfer of the case registered in Bihar’s capital of Patna to Maharashtra’s Mumbai.

A team of Bihar Police is in Mumbai to probe the matter on the basis of an FIR which was registered in Patna, based on a complaint filed by Rajput’s father KK Singh against actor Rhea Chakraborty under several sections including abetment to suicide.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s father, KK Singh, had filed a police complaint against Chakraborty in Patna, accusing her of abetting his son’s alleged suicide in June. His father has also alleged that Chakraborty illegally transferred Rs 15 crore from his son’s bank account and mentally harassed him.

Chakraborty has challenged Bihar police’s jurisdiction in the matter, saying that the alleged crime took place in Mumbai.

Bihar police can visit Mumbai to get information about Sushant Singh Rajput death case, but cannot investigate the case said Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday.
While speaking to ANI, he alleged that the case is being politicised.
“Bihar police can come to Mumbai to get information, they cannot investigate. If you do a parallel investigation, I think it will be an injustice to the Mumbai Police. If Mumbai Police is already investigating the case, so anyone not related to Maharashtra government and not related to the case should not comment on it. The Mumbai Police is capable of conducting the probe on its own,” Raut said.
“It is politics of Bihar election. After the election, those who are politicising it, won’t even know where did Sushant Singh Rajput stay in Patna or what is his family doing. They will forget everything. Sushant was born in Patna but Mumbai gave him everything,” Raut added.
The statement comes after Bihar Director-General of Police (DGP) Gupteshwar Pandey on Monday said that he was trying to get in touch with his counterpart in Mumbai after Patna Superintendent of Police Vinay Tiwari was “forcibly quarantined” by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials in Mumbai on Sunday.
Tiwari is probing the case related to the late actor’s death, who was found dead at his residence in Mumbai on June 14.

PM Modi in Ayodhya for Ram Temple Bhumi Pujan

Published

on

Ayodhya Aug 5 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reached Ayodhya from Lucknow for the “Bhoomi Pujan” or groundbreaking ceremony for a Ram temple. He first visited the 10th-century Hanuman Garhi temple for special prayers for his health.

The Prime Minister was received by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on his arrival here.

After landing at the KS Saket PG College Ground Helipad, PM Modi left for Hanumangarhi- a first-ever visit by any prime minister to this temple.

Later, PM is scheduled to arrive for Bhoomi Pujan (ground-breaking) of Ram Temple, marking the first visit to the Ram Janmabhoomi site by any Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister will first perform ‘pooja’ of ‘Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman’ after reaching the site at around 12 pm.

Modi will also plant a ‘Parijaat’ sapling in the temple premises. He is likely to use the traditional natural drip irrigation method, achieved by placing an unglazed clay pot filled with water parallel to the roots of the plant thereby providing water to the plant for about a week, while planting the auspicious ‘Parijaat’ sapling.

Subsequently, at 12.30 pm, the Prime Minister will perform the much-awaited ‘bhoomi pujan’ for Ram temple.

After the ‘bhoomi pujan’, PM Modi will address a public function on the foundation stone-laying ceremony of Ram Temple.

The Prime Minister is also scheduled to unveil a plaque to mark the occasion and also release a commemorative postage stamp on ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir’.

Sanitisation work was carried out at the Hanuman Garhi temple on Wednesday morning ahead of the PM’s visit. The Saryu Ghat was also decorated.

Over 11,000 diyas are set to be lit across the city of Ayodhya, illuminating every street and all houses will be celebrating with a ‘deepotsava’, a festival of lights.

Apart from PM Modi, the ceremony will be attended by Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat, Uttarakhand Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj, Senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, Iqbal Ansari (former litigant in Ayodhya land dispute case) and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
