Narendra Modi, PM Narendra Modi, Goa, Women Congress wing, Rahul Gandhi, attack on rahul gandhi

Panaji: Few days after the attack on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s convoy, the Congress women wing in Goa said they will send bangles to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah to protest against the attack.

 

 

The Gujarat Police had yesterday arrested a person, identified as Jayesh Darji alias Anil Rathod, for allegedly throwing a stone at Gandhi’s car in Banaskantha district on Friday when he was on a visit to the flood-hit areas.

 

Congress leaders claimed that Darji was a local office bearer of the BJP’s youth outfit. “We are sending boxes of bangles, which we have collected from our homes, to Prime Minister Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and the persons who threw stones at our leader’s car,” Goa Pradesh Mahila Congress Committee president Pratima Coutinho told reporters here on Saturday.

 

She said throwing stones was a cowardly act against the person who had gone to console the people suffering due to the floods.

 

 

“India is a democratic country. Anybody can go anywhere without fear,” Coutinho said. The BJP should know that Gandhi, whose family members have sacrificed their lives for the country, would not be afraid of such attacks, she said.

 

Gandhi had escaped unhurt in the attack in which the glass pane at the rear of his car was broken. The incident had triggered protests from the Congress.

Trump knew exactly what was going on: Giuliani aide

Washington: An aide to Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, has said that the US President “knew exactly what was going on” regarding efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, it was reported on Thursday.

Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnass, who is facing separate criminal charges, made the comments in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday after letters, phone records, notes and flash drives were obtained from him earlier this week, the BBC said in a report.

Documents show that the Ukraine-born Parnas was in regular contact with Giuliani as well as Ukrainian officials, and suggests that the businessman was directly involved in trying to have Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky look into the Bidens.

In the interview, Parnas said Trump was “aware of all my movements”.

“I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the President. Why would President Zelensky’s inner circle or (Interior) Minister (Arsen) Avakov or all these people or (former) President (Petro) Poroshenko meet with me?

“Who am I? They were told to meet with me. And that’s the secret that they’re trying to keep. I was on the ground doing their work,” he added.

Parnas further said that the President was lying and knew that unless there was an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who was a director of a Ukrainian gas company, military aid to Kiev would be withheld.

He also claimed that the investigation was about digging up dirt on Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, some of the materials obtained show Parnas and Giuliani discussing the removal of Marie Yovanovitch, the then US ambassador to Ukraine, said the BBC report.

In Wednesday’s interview, Parnas claimed the only motivation to get Yovanovitch removed from her post was because she was in the way of the effort to get Ukraine to announce an investigation into Joe Biden.

Trump was impeached by the Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives on December 18, 2019 and is accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The two articles of impeachment were sent to the Republican-majority Senate on Wednesday night, paving the way for the starting of a trial against the President.
