Gandhi, Nehru, Manmohan favoured helping persecuted minorities in neighbouring countries: J P Nadda

While addressing a group of minority refugees from Pakistan at the party headquarters in New Delhi, BJP working president J P Nadda said the opposition is misleading people that crores of refugees would enter India after the law and it will become a difficult task to handle them. He said the law is for those who have come to India with December 31 2014 as the cut-off date.

  • A bench of justices Manmohan and Sangeeta Dhingra Sehgal allowed Sengar to deposit in 60 days the fine amount of Rs 25 lakh, out of which Rs 10 lakh will be released to the rape survivor without any condition.

    Modi was doing the biggest disservice to the nation by dividing it and distracting the attention of people, Gandhi said after a meeting of the Opposition that was attended by the leaders of 20 parties. "Narendra Modi should stand up and have the courage to speak to the youngsters of these universities on why the economy has become a disaster," he said.

    The Delhi government on Wednesday recommended rejecting the mercy plea filed by Mukesh Singh, one of the four death row convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case, and forwarded it to the LG at "lightning speed", Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said. He said the recommendation on the mercy petition will now be sent to the Union Home Ministry.

    The four convicts -- Vinay Sharma (26), Mukesh Kumar (32), Akshay Kumar Singh (31) and Pawan Gupta (25) -- are to be hanged on January 22 at 7 am in Tihar jail. A Delhi court had issued their death warrants on January 7. The Delhi government and the prison authorities informed the court that under the rules, it will have to wait for the mercy plea to be decided before executing the death warrant.

    Asserting that there was "unprecedented turmoil" in the country, Gandhi said the government has let loose a reign of oppression, spreading hatred and trying to divide people along sectarian lines.

    This will be after over two decades that the 'black cat' commandos of the elite counter-terror force will be taken out from VIP protection duties, a task not originally charted for it when the force was conceptualised and raised in 1984. The force provides proximate and mobile security cover under the top 'Z+' category to 13 'high-risk' VIPs.

    Former prime minister Manmohan Singh had referred to former PM IK Gujral’s meeting with then home minister PV Narasimha Rao, saying that if his advice to press the army into action had been heeded, then “perhaps the massacre that took place in 1984 could have been avoided”.

    As a mark of respect the Indian government has decided that there will be one day’s state mourning on January 13 throughout India. National Flag will fly at half-mast and there will be no official entertainment on Monday. Earlier in 2015 India had declared national mourning for King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and Lee Kuan Yew, founder of Singapore.

    The Congress top brass meeting, chaired by party chief Sonia Gandhi, deliberated upon the social, economic and political challenges confronting the country after which it passed a resolution on "suppression of the voice of youth and the students of India".

    Former prime minister Singh and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav were conferred the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Lokmat Parliamentary Awards.

    The high court pulled up the authorities, saying there has been no application of mind and that the system is suffering from cancer in response to the submission that as per prison rules they have to wait for the other co-convicts to exhaust their mercy pleas as well.

    Most equity investors believe if they gather enough knowledge and apply it all, they will know what is going to happen to an investment. All of it adds up to trying to know where stock prices will head tomorrow.
