Terror boat issue: BJP lashes out Congress for seeking investigation



New Delhi: Responding over the demand of Congress for a probe into the suspected Pakistani terror boat which caught fire and exploded after a chase off the Gujarat coast, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today said that instead of thanking the agencies involved in the operation for preventing a probable terrorist attack, the Congress has touched a new “abysmal low” in politics.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “A new low in Indian has been touched, and who has been responsible for this? It’s the Congress, the principal opposition party of India. It has touched a new abysmal low as far as politics is concerned.”
“…Keeping aside all political diversion, ill feelings, the Congress should have stood up with the Indian government and should have taken the opportunity to thank all those agencies (involved) for protecting us from a probable terror attack. But the Congress chose otherwise,” he said.

“It (the Congress) chose to stand by the probable perpetrator,” he added.


Rahul Gandhi: Accepting Less Than Scrapping Farm Laws Will Be Deceit To Farmers



The Congress has stepped up the demand of immediately scrapping the farm laws in the wake of the farmers’ protest in the national capital. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet,”Accepting less than scrapping of three black farm laws will be deceit to farmers and the country.”

The Congress leader’s reaction comes even as the meeting between the farmers and the government is going on to resolve the issue.

Talks between the Centre and over 34 farmer union representatives has started here, even as the farmers protest entered the eighth straight day with thousands sitting on different Delhi borders blocking essential supply chains to the city.

Like the previous round of talks held on December 1, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar and Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Piyush Goyal are leading the meeting, which is expected to play a major role in farmers’ future course of action on whether they would continue the protest or withdraw it.

The Bharatiya Kisan Union, Bharatiya Kisan Sanyukta Morcha and Krantikari Kisan Union are among over the 34 farm union representatives taking part in the meeting, which started around 12.30 p.m.

The fourth round of meetings with the farmer leaders started at Vigyan Bhawan after the earlier talks remained inconclusive on December 1.

In the last meeting, the farmers’ representatives had unanimously rejected the Centre’s proposal of a special committee to resolve concerns over the farm laws.
