Tamil Nadu Sports Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin stoked another controversy by saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s presence made Shankaracharyas not attend the Ram Temple Pran Pratishtha in Ayodhya. He said no swamis attended the Ram Temple Pran Pratishtha. He added Shankaracharyas said that if Modi came, they would not attend.

He defended his earlier statement that all are equal. He said a case had been filed against him but he will fight it. He said the BJP asked him to apologise but he refused. He said he did not take back what he said. Stalin added he only meant that all are equal by birth and he respected the legal system.

The sports minister said the people of Tamil Nadu might pray to God, but when elections come they will vote for the DMK. Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin slammed the opposition party AIADMK that the party workers are in a situation where they don’t know the difference between their party founder and Tamil actor.

Earlier a Bengaluru court had summoned Udhayanidhi Stalin in connection to his Sanatan Dharma remarks. A Bengaluru local Paramesh had lodged a complaint against the Tamil Nadu sports minister in the Special Court of People’s Representatives.

Udhayanidhi Stalin, who is the son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin had sparked a controversy last year as he compared Sanatan Dharma to dengue and malaria. He had said Sanatana Dharma is against social justice and equality and should be eradicated. After facing backlash for his statement, Udhayanidi Stalin stood firm on his statement and said he would oppose Sanatana Dharma forever.

Advocate Dharampal, appearing for petitioner Paramesh said with the Ram Mandir inauguration, a lot of devotion and awareness has increased regarding Hindu dharma and some others from other faiths too. He said based on a statement filed by Paramesh, the court has issued a summons and asked the minister to appear by March 4.

The Samajwadi Party (SP) chief, Akhilesh Yadav, decided not to be cooperative in the ongoing inquiry by refusing to cooperate with the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) summons over the illegal mining case.

It is uncertain that Akhilesh Yadav will visit Delhi tomorrow since, according to a close colleague of his and a senior party official, the party office is already busy with multiple meetings about the preparations for the next Lok Sabha elections.

According to sources, Yadav has an important PDA (Picchda, Dalit, and Alpsankhyak) meeting scheduled at the party’s Lucknow headquarters later today. The party official stated that Yadav has no intention of going anywhere.

Samajwadi Party spokesperson Rajendra Chowdhury confirmed Yadav’s intention to attend the planned gathering in Lucknow. He denied any possibility of Yadav traveling to Delhi for the CBI investigation.

He said, Akhileshji will attend a meeting of PDA at the party office today. He will not be going anywhere. In Lucknow, he is scheduled to attend a meeting, said Rajendra Chowdhury.

Officials explained that Yadav is being called as a witness in the illicit mining cases that date back to his time as Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister, not as an accused party.

The cases under investigation concerned purported irregularities in the mining lease issuing, which took place between 2012 and 2016, with charges that permits were given for illicit mining activities even in the face of a National Green Tribunal prohibition.

In response to the CBI’s notice, Yadav attacked the BJP and said that the timing of the investigation was motivated by politics. He hinted that these kinds of notices, which cast doubt on the BJP’s actions and intentions, frequently occur during election seasons.

Yadav’s comments alluded to the Samajwadi Party and the ruling BJP’s continued political tensions, with charges and denials frequently occurring in the run-up to elections.

A senior police Aminul Islam Khansaid  that the 53-year-old Trinamool strongman would be appearing in court today after being taken from the Minakhan region of North 24 Parganas.

Three days prior, the Calcutta High Court had said that he should be arrested and chastised the state police for their inaction in prosecuting the Trinamool leader. This arrest has already occurred.

Section 144 has been enforced in Sandeshkhali, including the areas of Sarberia and Akunjipara close to Sheikh Shahjahan’s home, as a result of the arrest.

In response to the arrest, West Bengal BJP president Sukanta Majumdar said that the Mamata Banerjee administration was forced to take action due to the continuous agitation by the BJP.

The government was is denial mode. They weren’t even acknowledging that anything had actually occurred. They would force the government to arrest Sheikh Shahjahan, as he previously said.

Shahjahan’s arrest was postponed because of the stay order, according to Trinamool MP Santanu Sen, who also remarked that the arrest demonstrates how the government follows rajdharma in an administrative manner. He also said, the TMC is a better source of rajdharma than the BJP.

Abhishek Banerjee claimed that the court’s stay order prevented the police from arresting him. After the stay order was lifted, he was arrested in 3–4 days, according to the Triamool leader.
