Nobody who gets close to Pakistan remains in politics for long: Shiv Sena

“The whole country is asking if BJP would have similarly welcomed a Congress PM’s unannounced stopover in Lahore like they did for Modi. Pakistan’s soil is cursed and kissing it would prove to be costly because it is soaked in the blood of lakhs of innocent Indians,” the edit said.

Arun Jaitley running away from probe, misinterpreting report: AAP

“If BJP is so confident that he is clean then why is it running away from investigation? They should take it to a logical conclusion. Why is Jaitley running away from enquiry and investigation. Even the PM has said you should follow Advani and resign till he comes out clean. He should come forward and present an example before the nation. Earlier they rubbished the committee report, but now they are considering it as a sacred book…The report also states that there should be a Commission of Inquiry into the matter. A whistleblower had alerted the Delhi government well in advance that the formation of the Commission will be scuttled through the Lt Governor,” Ashutosh claimed.

After bonhomie in Lahore, PM Modi and Nawaz Sharif to meet in Washington?

The first visit by an Indian premier in 11 years marked another step forward by the two countries in their efforts to put on an even keel in their ties which was going through a chill until recently. Modi also attended a marriage function of Sharif’s grand-daughter Mehrun Nisa (who is the daughter of Mariam Nawaz Sharif) at the latter’s Raiwind home on the outskirts of Lahore.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan expunges her own remarks after Congress protests

“I did not take name of (any) party… I will definitely expunge the ‘vested interest’ remark… I am sorry,” she said.

In a rare act, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Mond agreed to expunge her own “vested interest” remarks made yesterday against members protesting in the Well, after Congress expressed concern saying it was not right on part of the Chair to make such a remark. Soon after the House condoled the death of 10 people in a BSF plane crash yesterday, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge raised concern over the Speaker’s remarks. Yesterday when Congress members were protesting in the Well, Mahajan had said they don’t have any national interest and they only have vested interest. Noting that she did not take the name of any party while making the remarks, Mahajan today said it was made when members were protesting in the Well of the House. “I did not take name of (any) party… I will definitely expunge the ‘vested interest’ remark… I am sorry,” she said. <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Wondering what would happen tomorrow, Kharge said the Speaker’s remarks yesterday was unfortunate and it hurt them. “(The remarks) were not proper,” he noted. “We are bringing up issues on national interest” whether about Union Minister V K Singh or Arunachal Pradesh or any other matter, Kharge said, adding that whatever problems have happened, the government was responsible. Mahajan said “unko (Congress) bhi kisi baat ke liye dukh hua hai. Achchi baat hai ki woh sochen unki kise baat se doosre bhi aahat ho sakte hain (They are hurt for some reason. It would be good if they also think that for their actions some others might have also been hurt)”. Dissatisfied with the Speaker’s response when Congress members began to protest, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said such actions by the Opposition was not allowed in the House. “Nobody can question the conduct of the Speaker in the House,” the Minister said. Earlier when the House assembled and the Question Hour began, Congress members trooped into the Well raising slogans over Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s alleged role in the irregularities in the Delhi cricket body DDCA.Amid the protests, Jaitley and BJP MP Kirti Azad, who has also targeted the Finance Minister over the DDCA affairs, walked into the House. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Sonia Gandhi were also present in the House.

Debate ideologies despite differences: Rajnath Singh

He was speaking at an event at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) to launch the birth centenary celebrations of Upadhyaya.

The year-long birth centenary celebrations of RSS ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya kicked off on Friday with Home Minister Rajnath Singh stressing upon the need for debate on every ideology, notwithstanding the differences of opinion. “In India, there are some people who want to restrict any debate around a few individuals. Our belief is no matter how many ideologies there are, there can be differences of opinion regarding them, but there should be debate on all ideologies,” Singh said.He was speaking at an event at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) to launch the birth centenary celebrations of Upadhyaya, one of the foremost leaders of Bhartiya Jan Sangh, BJP’s forerunner, where Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley also paid tributes to the leader. <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Asked why NMML was chosen for the launch of celebrations, Tourism Minister Mahesh Sharma said it was not an attempt at “saffronisation”. “To call this saffronisation is indicative of a small mindset. For us Nehruji is as revered. Today we are celebrating Deen Dayalji’s birth annivarsary. I think it is fortunate if, as per the objectives behind this institution, apart from Nehruji, others who contributed to the freedom struggle or making of modern India also find place here,” Sharma told reporters. He had recently said the government will undertake a major overhaul of 39 institutions, including the Gandhi Smriti and Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, to introduce modern Indian component, including works of the Modi dispensation, a move that was termed as “diabolical” by Congress.

Time to make UN vibrant with India as permanent member: Sumitra Mahajan

She told Ban that India is ready to accept this new responsibility and the world’s largest democracy and emerging economy will make the Council more vibrant and representative.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Mahajan said that at times, some MPs do not find the time to research on topics ahead of a discussion and are therefore unable to express themselves despite having ideas.

“… there are so many persons, experts working with ministries, advisers, research scholars. So many of them are working with UN. They can be useful to MPs if the MPs want any help on any topics,” Mahajan told The Indian Express, adding that, “experts can elaborate on so many aspects of an issue. Different experts can give different views. I even told the MPs that after such an interaction, you can add your politics in that but at least the basics would be clear”.

Organisations like PRS Legislative Research engage with MPs and MLAs often providing in-depth research analysis that help them understand issues better, especially with regard to drafting of legislation0.

In 2010, the Constitution Club, set up a bureau of legislative assistants within its premises. According to a Mint report, the primary concerns of the bureau were: first, to arrest the declining standards of parliamentary debate with informed research; and second, to participate in legislative processes better, as voters make greater demands on their leaders.

Another organisation Swaniti, helps professionals work with elected officials.

“We realised that though many of us wanted to contribute towards better governance in India, there were few entry channels for young Indians to work with elected officials,” founder chair Rwitwika Bhattacharya, told the Economic Times.
