Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday slammed the Congress and its youth wing members for setting a tractor on fire at India Gate, New Delhi during their protest yesterday against the new farm laws. The PM said opposition parties are insulting farmers and misleading them over the new farm laws. He said farm equipment, like tractors, which are worshipped by farmers, but the opposition was going about setting fire to such equipment and insulting farmers.

PM Modi said the Opposition parties are protesting just for their own benefit as they don’t care about farmers’ welfare.

Speaking on the new farmers’ laws during the launch of six mega projects in Uttarakhand, the PM said the new farm laws will strengthen farmers of the country and there are no negative aspects. Through the new farm laws, farmers can sell their crops and produce to anyone, anywhere they want without any middlemen. The PM attacked the opposition saying that those against the bill don’t want farmers to sell their produce in an open market and want middlemen to earn profits.

Assuring farmers, PM Modi said the minimum support price will continue to be there but farmers will also have the right to sell their produce anywhere.

Without naming the Congress directly, PM Modi accused the opposition of trying to mislead the farmers and said the opposition party has shamed the country with its drama.

Meanwhile, some farmers’ organisations protested against the passage of the new laws by blocking the Amritsar-Delhi railway track even as the government has insisted that they will make them self-reliant. They say the new laws could lead to an end of the minimum support price regime for their produce.

Telangana: Former Chief Minister KCR hospitalised following a fall; suspected hip and back injury

According to local reports, the former chief minister will undergo some tests today. KCR is in stable health as of right now.

Former Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR), fell at home and was taken to the hospital in Hyderabad this morning at around 2 a.m.

The 69-year-old may need surgery since doctors believe he may have injured his hip following the fall. At around two in the morning on Friday, he was taken to the Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad. Since losing the state assembly elections three days ago, the former chief minister has been hosting meetings at his house.

According to local reports, the former chief minister will undergo some tests today. KCR is in stable health as of right now.

BRS MLC K Kavitha posted on X with an update on KCR’s condition, stating that he is receiving professional medical care at the hospital right now.

Meanwhile, KCR held the position of Chief Minister of Telangana from 2014 till 2023, following his party Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS)’s loss by the Congress in the recently held Assembly Elections.

In the Telangana election, KCR stood for two seats; he won the Gajwel seat but lost to Kamareddy. He was beaten from the Kamareddy seat by Katipally Venkata Ramana Reddy of the BJP, who also defeated KCR and Revanth Reddy.

Revanth Reddy, a member of the Congress, and eleven other ministers were sworn in as Telangana’s chief minister yesterday.

In the 119-member Telangana assembly, the Congress secured 64 seats, while the BRS managed to secure just 39. This was the first loss for BRS since Telangana was created in 2014.

During the lengthy poll campaign, the party attempted to draw attention to all of its programmes for the underprivileged. Nevertheless, the execution of certain programmes had granted MLAs an excessive degree of authority to determine how to allocate monies, giving rise to accusations of both corruption and prejudice.

Despite KCR’s warnings to these MLAs to get a grip and step up their game, all of them received election tickets. As a result, the Congress was awarded the majority of these seats.
