IndiaTimes Wednesday, 6 December 2023
Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge, urged the Central government to release Rs 18,171 crore from the National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF) for Karnataka, which is facing severe drought. The state has suffered the most severe drought in 123 years, causing an estimated Rs 35,162 crore worth of damage to crops. Kharge emphasized the urgent need for financial support to provide input subsidies, relief measures, and address the low rainfall situation. He also highlighted the alarmingly low water levels in reservoirs and the impending shortage of drinking water.

Nitish Kumar’s U-turn: KC Tyagi on JD(U) returning to BJP-led NDA | Mallikarjun Kharge | Oneindia [Video]

Nitish Kumar’s U-turn: KC Tyagi on JD(U) returning to BJP-led NDA | Mallikarjun Kharge | Oneindia

On JD (U) returning to BJP-led NDA, party leader KC Tyagi says," Coordination could not be established between INDIA parties. From the outside, everything appeared normal but Congress was doing politics with the alliance parties. While we were working to strengthen the alliance, Congress was busy grabbing the important posts. They were trying to weaken the SP, DMK, TMC and other regional parties. Once Rahul Gandhi said that regional parties don't have an ideology. Due to this, we broke our association with the alliance." On Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge saying JD (U)'s exit from INDIA alliance "pre-planned", KC Tyagi says, "If this was pre-planned, then why did we organise the first meeting of (INDIA parties) in Patna? Why did we bring Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal and Akhilesh Yadav with an 'achyut' party like you (Congress)? This happened after Mamata Banerjee in Delhi proposed Mallikarjun Kharge as INDIA alliance prime ministerial candidate. Congress party always wanted to grab this (PM) post." #NitishKumar #KCTyagi #KCTyagiNitishKumar #MallikarjunKharge #MallikarjunKhargeNitishKumar #CongressJD(U) #BiharCM #9thTimeOath #NDAReturn #RecordNineTimes #BiharLeadership #PoliticalMilestone #OathTakingCeremony #NDAAlliance #LeadershipContinuity #PoliticalHistory #BiharPolitics #GovernanceJourney #PoliticalMilestones #LeadershipLegacy #NitishKumarReturns #BiharDevelopment #CMOathCeremony #PoliticalAchievement #RecordBreakingLeadership ~HT.292~PR.152~ED.102~GR.121~
