  • The panel may also seek the report prepared by Delhi Police’s joint commissioner Shalini Singh on JNU’s Sunday violence. Singh was to submit her report to the home ministry. JNUSU has claimed that members of RSS’ student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) were behind the violence. ABVP has denied the allegations.

    The bill has been attacked by the opposition, minority outfits and others for leaving out Muslims and also on the ground that it is at odds with the Constitution, which does not differentiate between citizens on the basis of their faith.

    The influential Jajpur MLA, Pranab Prakash Das has been appointed General Secretary (Organisation) a position that the regional party, in power since the last 19 years, did not have until now.

    Prasad, who had founded the party in 1997, is at Ranchi serving sentences in fodder scam cases and his nomination papers were submitted at the RJD state headquarters by his sons Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav.

    Months after the Congress enjoyed a lead of over 20,000 votes in the area under Khunti assembly constituency in this year’s Lok Sabha election, Nilkanth Singh Munda faces a candidate put up jointly by the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Congress and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

    Outside the NDA fold, BJD has emerged as BJP’s most prominent ally. In June, Patnaik surprised everyone by backing BJP’s Rajya Sabha candidate Ashwini Vaishnav despite his party having the numbers to send a third BJD nominee to the House. Now, Patnaik-led BJD has decided to support the government on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

    As per the latest trends available on the Election Commission website, Das was trailing BJP rebel candidate and former minister Saryu Roy by over 10,000 votes in Jamshedpur (East) constituency.

    Terming the clash "unfortunate", ABVP state president alleged that the violence was the handiwork of Leftitst forces who want to destabilise the situation in the JNU. More than 35 students and faculty members were assaulted on Sunday evening after masked men armed with sticks and iron rods went on a rampage inside the campus of the institute.

    The BJP announced a massive countrywide campaign to share details of the Citizenship Amendment Act and assure people that it is not against existing citizens and to expose “lies” and “myths” being spread against it. The BJP will contact more than three crore families in the next 10 days.

    The 30 shares BSE Sensex was up 625.26 points at 41443.

    Shortly after Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar took over as VC of the JNU, in Jan 2016, he emphasised faculty and students should be known for their scientific and social contributions and it should not be in the news for the wrong reasons. Ironically, JNU has been in the news for the wrong reasons, thereafter.

    A day after 'Pinky' Chaudhary, head of Hindutva organistion Hindu Raksha Dal, released a video claiming responsibility for the JNU vandalism, the Sangh Parivar distanced itself from the group.
