Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav, other INDIA bloc leaders join Lalu Yadav’s Jan Vishwas rally in Patna

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and RJD Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha also attended the rally.



Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav and other leaders of the Opposition bloc INDIA joined the RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav at Jan Vishwas rally in Bihar’s Patna on Sunday.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury and RJD Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha were among the prominent leaders from the INDIA bloc who attended the Jan Vishwas, which was organised by the RJD.

Addressing the Jan Vishwas rally at Gandhi Maidan in Patna, Gandhi said whenever there has been a transformation in the country, it began from Bihar and then reached the rest of the country.

Bihar is the political nerve centre of our country, the Congress leader asserted. There is an ideological war in the country, he added. There is hatred, violence and arrogance on one side and the other side there is love, respect and brother, Gandhi said. He further asserted saying, the INDIA alliance can be understood in one sentence, “Nafrat Ke Bazaar Mein Mohabbat Ki Dukan.”

During the Jan Vishwas rally, Akhilesh Yadav hit out at the BJP and said on one hand, Uttar Pradesh is giving the slogan of “80 Harao,” Bihar is also raising the slogan of “40 Harao.” What will happen to BJP if both UP and Bihar make them lose 120 seats, the SP chief asked.  In 2024, ‘Samvidhaan Manthan’ was going to take place. On one side, there were the protectors of the Constitution and on the other side, there were the destroyers of the Constitution, the former Chief Minister of UP recalled.

Lalu Yadav, addressing the rally, said Bihar has given lots of great personalities. In the same Gandhi Maidan, leaders of the country have held rallies and meetings, he added. A message went to the whole country from here. Bihar’s opinion has so much power that the people of the country imitate what Bihar decides, the RJD chief further said.

Hitting out at the BJP, Kharge said that today, the INDIA alliance has been facing the BJP on the battleground. He also said that how BJP has been misusing the agencies to instil fear in them. This was not possible as INDIA was not here to bow down before them, Kharge emphasised.

Attacking Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, he said in Hindi, “Main Thode Din Ke Liye Bahar Gaya Tha, Main Phir Wapas Aaya Hoon” and added that he asked Tejashwi Yadav not to take him to the party if he returned.

Rameshwaram Cafe blast: Karnataka Home Minister reveals how police inputs helped NIA arrest accused

The blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured



Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara said on Saturday that inquiry teams were attempting to determine whether the two suspects in the Rameshwaram cafe blast who were detained by the NIA had any connections to other terrorist groups. He also praised the state police for their contributions, some of which resulted in their arrest. Meanwhile, the suspects have been placed in 10-day police custody on remand.

The Karnataka police and the NIA have both performed incredibly well. In the beginning, they obtained all of the CCTV footage and monitored one of the accused, which helped in their arrest, he said.

The minister disclosed how the NIA was able to arrest the accused, which was possible because of a tip from the police.

He said the police shared very good inputs with the NIA, like the cap the accused was wearing, which was purchased from Chennai, and the telephone number he had given in the shop.

According to G Parameshwara, the services were also looking for connections between them and other crimes related to terrorism. He said that they might be attempting to flee from West Bengal to Bangladesh, where they were apprehended by the NIA.

He said the team is investigating the real motive behind the blast and their involvement with other terror outfits (ISIS), as these two (accused) are supposed to be involved in the earlier Shivamogga blast and kept running for three to four days ahead of getting arrested in this case, Parameshwara stated.

Since they were apprehended in West Bengal, a state that shares a border with Bangladesh, it’s possible that they wanted to leave the country. However, currently, they don’t have any precise information on this. He continued, They will discover in due course if there is someone assisting from that side (Bangladesh).

Meanwhile, the blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured. On March 3, the NIA took over the case from the police and announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for any information regarding the two accused.
