The Delhi High Court today disposed of former TMC leader Mukul Roy's plea alleging phone tapping, after the Centre and the West Bengal government said his numbers were not being intercepted.

Subsequently, he had parted ways with the social activist and launched his own political outfit. "I hope no Kejriwal comes out of my movement again," he told reporters here after addressing a public meeting at the Shahid Smarak here yesterday. Hazare said a big rally would be organised in the national capital on March 23 and urged farmers to join it in huge numbers.

Arunachal Pradesh copies Pakistan civil services paper 13.12.2017 DNA: Mumbai
In all matters Arunachal Pradesh, worries pertaining to intrusion of any kind emanate from the neighbouring China. An intrusion of a different kind, however, has been reported from our other contentious neighbour, Pakistan. In the recently concluded civil services exam, conducted by the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC), several questions were lifted from a forum for aspirants of the Pakistan civil services examination. Aspirants in Arunachal Pradesh alleged that majority of the questions were lifted from the site 'www.cssforum.com.pk'. To add to their woes, in the public administration question paper, 50 questions were a repeat of the Union Public Services Exam's (UPSC) 2008 question paper. Also, stickers for the form numbers were manually written and papers were handed out unsealed in some cases. Nearly 90 per cent of the sociology questions were lifted from an article on the Mandal Commission judgment, written by Shelly Shan in the early 1990s, listed on the website ...

The Kshatriya-dominated Dholera township in Dhandhuka Tehsil and constituency, which PM Narendra Modi planned to develop into a world class city is a complex maze of prosperity, caste pride and farmers' protest. While the ancient port-city in the Gulf of Khambhat is waking up to a slush of investments from developers after the then Gujarat CM Modi conceptualised to develop it into the country's first and only Smart Component City, the residents of Dholera were up in arms against any screening of the contentious Hindi movie 'Padmavati'.

The 24-year-old quota protest leader was addressing a rally at Patidar-dominated Nikol in Ahmedabad on Monday. He also urged people to vote BJP out in the upcoming Assembly elections.

King Ravana had also carried out development works, but the entire kingdom of Golden Lanka vanished because the king became arrogant. The BJP was talking about development a week ago, but has now diverted to Ram Mandir, Hindu-Muslim and India-Pakistan. They are lying, and you should not fall in their trap." "What would Pakistan gain from Gujarat polls? They are trying to divert the issue, but we need to stay united. Ignore all kinds of threats or fears you received or felt.
