New Delhi, Nov 13: As the national capital Delhi continues to reel under hazardous weather condition, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Monday using an old Bollywood song has found a sarcastic way to question the authorities.

“Sine mein jalan, aankho mein tufaan sa kyon hai… is shahar mein har saksh pareshan sa kyo hai? Kya batenge saheb, sab jaankar anjan kyo hain,” (Why is there burning sensation in lungs and tempest in the eyes…. why is everybody troubled in this city? What to say, sir, why are you pretending to be unaware even after knowing everything?), he tweeted along with news report regarding air pollution.

The song shared by Gandhi is written by Shahryar and is sung by Suresh Wadkar and featured in the Hindi film Gaman (1978) starring Farooq Sheikh, Smita Patil, Nana Patekar.

The hourly graph of the Central Control Room for Air Quality Management recorded PM2.5 and PM10 levels at 478 and 713 micrograms per cubic metre respectively.

While, the  corresponding 24-hour safe standards are 60 and 100 micrograms per cubic metre.

Due to bad weather conditions schools and colleges were also shut in Delhi and NCR till November 12.

BJP Minister threatens police superintendent, Says you were appointed due to ‘Casteism’

Published

on

Pratapgarh, June 21: Rajasthan’s tribal affairs minister Nandlal Meena reportedly threatened the Superintendent of Police (SP) and asked him to work for the people of their caste.

In a gathering, Meena said “you have been posted here because of casteism, you have to support the people of your caste, or else we have other alternatives”, ABP news reported.

The Minister also allegedly made an alleged rape victim sit on the stage making her identity known. He has been witnessing widespread criticism for both the acts.

The whole incident is of Salamgarh district where a woman of the same tribe had alleged 5 upper caste men of raping her. The allegation was found baseless in police probe as rape was not confirmed in the medical test and the statements of the woman were also not convincing.

However, under political pressure, the police had to make arrest of two people and applied section 354, instead of 376, which had angered Meena and he threatened the SP, who was of the same caste as that of the victim and the minister.
