‘Will join politics if people want’: Ex-Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey

Former Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey has hinted at taking the political plunge ahead of the assembly elections in Bihar later in the year. The top cop has been in the news recently for his ‘aukaat’ jibe at Rhea Chakraborty in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Pandey had also taken on the Mumbai Police and questioned it over its handling of the actor’s death probe. Pandey said that he will discuss with people and take a final call on whether or not to take the political plunge. He said that people from Buxar, Begusarai, Sitamarhi and several other places have told him to contest from their constituency if he takes the political plunge. He said that he worked in different positions in most of these places and hence people have been flocking to him to contest as their representative. Gupteshwar Pandey had earlier taken premature retirement to contest Lok Sabha elections in 2009 and was said to be eyeing the Buxar seat. Watch the full video for all the details.

Govt to blame for 'hungama': Opposition on Parliament ruckus after Prez meet

Opposition parties tried to corner the government over farm bills by meeting the President of India. Opposition leaders urged President Ram Nath Kovind to not give assent to controversial bills. The meeting took place days after massive fracas in Rajya Sabha for which 8 MPs were suspended. The opposition blamed the government for commotion, while seeking fresh debate in parliament on the bills. Congress MP Ghulam Nabi Azad said, “"I apprised him of the way these two bills were passed unconstitutionally and also urged him to return these bills, so that amendments can be made.” He added, “Before passing these bills, the government should have taken all political parties into confidence. They should have discussed with farmer organisations and their leaders so that a proper consensus could have reached.” Watch the full video for more.
