Lok Sabha Elections 2024: In the election season, rival parties sharpen their attacks against each other projecting themselves as the best ones who will meet people's expectations and address their issues. While the Opposition criticised the NDA government saying it failed to meet people's expectations, on the other hand, PM Modi, who is leading the Bharatiya Janata Party's poll campaigns, asserted that his government has done historic work in the last ten years. Meanwhile, as the Prime Minister persisted with his 'Muslim League imprint' attack on the Congress manifesto, the opposition party on Monday stepped up its counter-offensive, moving the Election Commission against his remarks while party chief Mallikarjun Kharge said that "there is a stink of RSS" in Modi's speeches. The Congress alleged that the prime minister is resorting to the "cliched Hindu-Muslim script" as he is scared that the BJP may struggle to even cross the 180-seat mark in the Lok Sabha polls. However, PM Modi again repeated the charge against the Congress at poll rallies in Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra, claiming that the country's oldest party has lost people's support due to its deeds and its recently released manifesto has the imprint of the pro-Partition Muslim League. On Tuesday, PM Modi will visited three states - Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu to participate in BJP's poll campaigns.

    BJP govt misusing central agencies, EC not acting on complaints: TMC to Bengal Governor

    The TMC today wrote to West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose, alleging that the BJP-led government at the Centre was "misusing" central investigative agencies and the Election Commission was not acting on complaints about it. In the letter, senior party leader Abhishek Banerjee alleged that a conspiracy was being hatched by the BJP and the central agencies to target TMC leaders.

    Despite women constituting the majority of voters in Lakshadweep Lok Sabha seat, their basic issues such as absence of proper sanitary napkin disposal facilities and gynecologists in hospitals have not found a place in the discourse of political parties in the ongoing election campaign. Parties pay scant attention to our demands, a group of women in Agatti Island told news agency PTI. "We do not even have a mechanism on the islands to collect and dispose of used sanitary napkins. Many either bury them in their compounds or burn them," lamented Salmath, leader of the disabled persons' wing of Dweepsree, a women's self-help group.
