After weeks of fighting, the Taliban have finally reached the Afghan capital. President Ashraf has stepped down from the top post as the Taliban took over the capital city Kabul on Sunday (August 15). Afghanistan’s former interior minister Ali Ahmad Jalali could be the country’s next president. Fighters of the Islamic fundamentalist organization are stationed outside Kabul, the Afghan interior ministry said.

After entering the capital, the insurgents issued a statement and said that they have no plans to take the Afghan capital by force. This comes as gunshots sounds were echoed in the capital. The Taliban said common people will not be harmed during the peaceful transfer of power.

According to the news agency Agence France Presse, Taliban fighters have surrounded the capital from all sides and are slowly moving forward. At the same time, media reports have also claimed that fighters have been instructed to stand at the gates of the city for now and have been refused entry. With the withdrawal of US and NATO forces from the country, the pace of the Taliban had accelerated and now the capital is trapped in their clutches.

According to a Taliban spokesman, fighters of the Islamic Emirates will remain outside the capital for the time being and will not enter until the process of transfer of power is completed. During this, the Afghan government is responsible for the security of Kabul. On the other hand, the Bloomberg report, quoting President Ashraf Ghani’s office, has claimed that Kabul is controlled by the National Security Force and the people need not worry.

He claimed that they do not care about the sentiments of the majority of people of the country. PM Modi even compared them with the Mughals and accused them of trying to tease the people of the country.

PM Modi was referring to a viral video which was released in September last year in which senior Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and RJD leader Lalu Yadav were seen cooking mutton together. PM Modi was speaking at an election rally in Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur.

He said the opposition and INDI alliance do not care about the sentiments of the majority of the people of the India. He added Congress party enjoys playing with the sentiments of the people.

Talking about RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, PM Modi said a person who has been sentenced by the court and who is on bail – Rahul Gandhi visited the house of such a criminal and enjoys cooking mutton in the month of Sawan and a video was also made to tease the people of the country.  The Prime Minister claimed the intention of INDI alliance is to tease the people of the country and he even compared them with the Mughals.

PM Modi said the law does not stop anyone from eating anything but the intentions of these people are something else.

Akhilesh Yadav condemns deployment of cops in priests attire at Kashi temple

While the female policemen were wearing a ‘salwar kurta’, the male policemen were in a ‘dhoti-kurta’.

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has condemned the deployment of police officers dressed as priests at the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Varanasi. The Samajwadi Party (SP) chief demanded the suspension of the officers and wondered who ordered to deployment of cops in such attire.   

On the orders of Varanasi Police Commissioner Mohit Agarwal, the male and female policemen have been deployed in the temple in the priests’ attire. While the female policemen were wearing a ‘salwar kurta’, the male policemen were in a ‘dhoti-kurta’.

Yadav questioned the system in UP and asked according to which police manual is it correct for policemen to be dressed as priests. Those who give such orders should be suspended, he added. If tomorrow any ‘thag’ (fraudster) takes advantage of this and loots the innocent public, then what will the UP government and administration answer, he further asked. He called it Condemnable in a post on X.

Police Commissioner Agarwal had earlier told reporters that people who come from far away places to have obeisance have regard for the priests and they often get hurt if they are pushed forward by the policemen.

The duty in the temple is different from other places as police have to manage different types of crowds here. The crowd here is not for creating law and order problems. The police are here to ensure easy darshan to people and help and guide them, the police officer said.

He added the devotees get hurt if being pushed by policemen, if the same thing is done by priests they take it in a positive way. Following the no-touch policy, policemen are being deployed in priests’ attire.

The Samajwadi Party had earlier announced its candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Party chief Akhilesh Yadav’s wife Dimple Yadav will be contesting from her existing seat in Mainpuri.
