Tejashwi Yadav and Nitish Kumar

A cross-party delegation led by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi to discuss the issue of conducting a caste-based census.

The 10 political parties delegation included RJD chief and Leader of the Opposition, Tejashwi Yadav, Hindustan Awam Morcha President and former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, the BJP’s Janak Ram, a state minister; Congress leader Ajeet Sharma and those from Left parties.

The Prime Minister listened to all the members of the delegation. We urged the PM to take an appropriate decision on it and briefed him on how resolutions have been passed twice in the state Assembly on the caste census, Nitish Kumar reporters in Delhi.

People in Bihar and the entire country are of the same opinion on this issue. We are grateful to the Prime Minister for listening to us. We urged him to take an appropriate decision. Now, he has to take it, CM Nitish Kumar said after meeting PM Modi.

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav called for a caste census in the entire country.

Our delegation met the Prime Minister today not only for caste census in the state, but in the entire country. We are awaiting a decision on this now, he told news agency ANI.

Bihar political parties have been united in calling for a caste census. For the BJP, however, this is a politically tricky subject given that the state agenda in Bihar is at odds with the national view.

Before today’s meeting with the Prime Minister, BJP leader Sushil Modi – who was Nitish Kumar’s deputy for several years – said the BJP has never been against the caste census.

The BJP was never against a caste-based census. The party have also been part of resolutions passed in the legislative assembly and council in its support. The delegation which is scheduled to meet PM Modi also includes a BJP representative, Sushil Modi wrote in a series of tweets on Sunday.

In an another tweet, Sushil Modi said BJP’s Gopinath Munde had presented the party’s side in Parliament in favour of the caste census in 2011. He also tweeted that that the last time a caste-based count took place was in 1931, under British rule, when Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha were one entity.

INDIA bloc rally: Sunita Kejriwal claims Arvind Kejriwal’s meals monitored, conspiracy to kill him in jail

Addressing the INDIA bloc’s rally in Ranchi, Sunita Kejriwal lashed out at the Centre and claimed conspiracy to kill her husband

Sunita Kejriwal, the wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is now arrested, said that her husband is not receiving insulin in Tihar jail because they want to kill him, on Sunday.

Speaking at the INDIA bloc rally in Ranchi, Sunita Kejriwal said that cameras were watching every bite Arvind Kejriwal took.

Arvind Kejriwal’s detention without evidence of crime, was a dictatorship, according to Sunita Kejriwal. She claimed that although Kejriwal, who is an IITian, had the option to go abroad, chose to remain in India out of love for it.

During her address she said, Arvind Kejriwal and Hemant Soren have been arrested. They have been arrested without having been found guilty. It’s a dictatorship here, she added. Mrs Kejriwal also questioned that what is her husband’s fault? Is it providing good education, health facilities? Patriotism is in his blood, she said.

Being an IITan, he had the option to go to abraod, but he chooses to prioritize his country. He took leave from the IRS to perform public duty. He has risked his life to save others, she remarked.

Sunita Kejriwal claimed Arvind Kejriwal merely wants to serve the country and has no thirst for power. She also referred to her husband as a lion and expressed concern over the nation’s jail population.

In an attempt to establish grounds for medical bail, the Enforcement Directorate has asserted that Arvind Kejriwal has been consuming sugar in tea, aloo-poori, and mangoes to raise his blood sugar levels.

In a Delhi court, Kejriwal’s lawyer denied the ED’s accusation, claiming he wouldn’t risk paralysis in exchange for release. He asserted that Kejriwal was not provided with insulin while incarcerated. Furthermore, he added that out of the 48 meals Kejriwal had received from home, he had only had mangoes three times. He claimed that he only ever had aloo poori for Navratri prasad.

At the Ulgulan Nyay Rally  in Ranchi, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi talks about corruption, it seems as Osama Bin Laden and Gabbar Singh are advocating for nonviolence.

As part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) campaign for the Lok Sabha Election, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be holding a mega roadshow in Silchar, Assam today, April 21.

According to Silchar Member of Parliament (MP) Rajdeep Roy, Shah would arrive at Silchar Airport in a special aircraft at 4:10 p.m. and arrive in Silchar town via helicopter. He said, they are expecting the roadshow to start around 4.30pm.

Shah will be doing campaign work for Parimal Suklabaidya, the BJP’s nominee for the Silchar Lok Sabha seat. Following the delimitation procedure in Assam last year by the Election Commission, Silchar was designated as a reserve seat for candidates from scheduled castes. Suklabaidya, a five-term member of parliament from the Cachar district, has held several portfolios under the Assam government.

In addition to accompanying Amit Shah on the roadshow on Sunday, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma predicted that Parimal will win by a margin of two to three lakh votes over the rival contenders.

Shah’s rally, will begin from the playground owned by the District Sports Association (DSA) in Silchar and culminate at the Chittaranjan Statue Point, according to Roy. Over a lakh of supporters will participate in the roughly 1.5-kilometer walk. During the roadshow, Shah is scheduled to deliver a speech, he continued.

Central security agencies and senior Assam police officers staged a mock drill in Silchar’s streets ahead of Shah’s rally. According to them, sufficient security has been set up before the home minister’s arrival.

According to party officials, bad weather has forced Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge to cancel his Sunday visit to an event in the Karimganj district of Assam.

The Congress party’s Rajat Chakraborty announced that Kharge’s visit has been canceled owing to Friday night’s thunderstorms and intense rain. The agencies suggested that we cancel the visit because of the high security measures required for his visit, he stated.

Rohit Sharma criticises impact player rule, BCCI reacts

Published

India captian and Mumbai Indians star cricketer Rohit sharma criticised the impact player rule and sad that he is not a big fan of it. Now, BCCI has responded to Sharma’s comment and said that they will reevaluate the rule.

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Arun Dhumal also acknowledged this and said  that every decision has advantages and disadvantages, he also mentioned  BCCI is prepared to review the regulation when the current IPL season concludes.

Ahead to being established in the IPL, the impact player rule was initially put into effect in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament in 2022–2023. There have been many expert comments regarding the rule that has been in place for almost two editions of the prestigious T20 tournament, with the many of players being against it.

Since this remark has been made, they will certainly analyze it and talk to everyone concerned and then the board will take calls, Dhumal said.

Every rule that is in place has a number of advantages and disadvantages. Nothing about its execution is set in stone, so after the season ends, they are open to any discussion, he continued.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma also discussed how the impact player rule is reducing the role of all-rounders in the sport.

Sharma said, he is not a big fan of Impact sub rule. All rounders will eventually be held back because cricket is ultimately played by 11 players, not 12. To make the game exciting for everyone around you, you are taking a great deal from it. During an interew the hitman said, if the audience look just at the cricketing side of things, he feels guys like Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar aren’t getting to bowl, which is not a good thing for them as a team.

He continued saying that there are 12 players, it’s interesting, and after the team or the captain sees how the game and the pitch are playing, they might turn on the impact player. You can add another bowler, giving you a total of six or seven bowlers, if the team bats effectively and don’t lose wickets. Many teams are hitting well up front, and he hardly ever sees a No 7 or No 8 coming to bat, so the team doesn’t need that additional batter, Rohit Sharma said.
