    Modi asks people of U'khand not to commit any mistake in upcoming polls

    Accusing successive Congress governments of doing nothing for Uttarakhand when it was part of Uttar Pradesh or after its separation from it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday warned people not to commit any mistake in the upcoming assembly polls. He said if those with a track record of putting roadblocks in the development of Uttarakhand come to power, even he would not be able to do much for the state. Addressing a virtual rally in Nainital, Modi asked people to vote for a "double engine" government which will help this decade become that of Uttarakhand. Taking a dig at Congress' slogan of "Char Dham Char Kam", he said the four projects of Congress would be to "serve one family, stall development projects, indulge in corruption and appeasement". Accusing the opposition party of promising to build a Muslim University in Uttarakhand, the prime minister said it was an example of "the party's politics of  appeasement".

    Nehru did not send armed forces to liberate Goa so to protect his 'peace-loving global image': PM Modi

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday blamed Jawaharlal Nehru for not sending armed forces to liberate Goa from Portuguese rule for 15 years only to protect his "peace-loving global image". A week before Goa goes to polls to elect a new assembly, Modi also used his reply to the Motion of Thanks to the President's Address in Rajya Sabha to attack the Congress on freedom of speech and how it had sacked Lata Mangeshkar's younger brother from All India Radio for presenting a patriotic poem of Veer Savarkar. He also cited the example of noted lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri for jailing him for speaking against Nehru. Modi also charged Nehru with leaving the satyagrahis, fighting for Goa's freedom, in lurch and using the independence address to attack their movement. "It has been 60 years of Goa liberation. People of Goa must be listening to me today. The way Sardar Patel made a strategy for Hyderabad and Junagad, if the same spirit was followed for Goa as well, then it would not have stayed under foreign rule for 15 years after India got independence. The state got liberated after 15 years of the country's independence," Modi stated.

    Ahead of state assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday hit out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath alleging mismanagement by him during the COVID-19 pandemic. The AAP also slammed Adityanath for his ôindecentö language against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, equating his expressions with those of a 'chauraha chhap neta'. The attack came a day after Adityanath and Kejriwal engaged in an online fight trading barbs over the ômismanagementö by their governments during the pandemic. "His (Adityanath's) language against a popular and elected Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal -- he said 'Suno Kejriwal' û this kind of indecent language for an elected chief minister reflects that Adityanath ji might have unfortunately become the CM of UP but he speaks like a 'chauraha chhap neta'," AAP leader Sanjay Singh said.
