Ram Temple: Uma Bharti to skip 'bhoomi poojan' event amid Covid scare

After former chief minister Siddaramaiah refused for donation of Ram Temple, Karnataka Minister KS Eshwarappa said 'one Siddaramaiah is enough to destroy Congress party.' "One Siddaramaiah is enough to destroy Congress party. Similarly, HD Kumaraswamy is destroying his party. Even the poor are giving Rs 10 each (for Ram temple) out of devotion. Siddaramaiah says that it's disputed land, so he won't contribute," said Karnataka Minister KS Eshwarappa. He added, "PFI tells people to not contribute (for Ram Temple) as it's disputed land, Siddaramaiah says the same. They have the same opinion. There is no difference between Siddaramaiah and PFI, they are one."

Smriti Irani spoke against gender inequality while addressing a virtual event in Delhi. The Union Minister said girls get less financial support for competitive exams than boys. Irani was speaking about ‘Women Power in Democracy' at Indian Institute of Mass Communication. “Girls don't get much financial support as compared to boys for competitive exams. The bias begins when a girl child is given a kitchen set or dolls to play with. A boy child is given a toy truck or lego set where he will learn how to build. These kinds of challenges are to be met societally and immediately,” Irani said. The union minister delivered the ‘Friday Dialogue’ at IIMC in presence of director Sanjay Dwivedi. The address was a virtual interactive session where the minister also took questions.

Watch: Ramdev launches Covid-19 medicine Coronil, Harsh Vardhan attends event

Yoga Guru Ramdev launched Patanjali's ‘Coronil’ to cure Covid-19 on Friday. Patanjali Ayurved said Coronil has got Ayush Ministry’s certification as per WHO scheme. The company claimed that it is the first evidence-based medicine to fight Covid-19. Ramdev also released research paper to back Patanjali's solutions to Covid-19. The ayurvedic medicine against coronavirus was launched at an event in New Delhi. The event was presided by Union Ministers Harsh Vardhan and Nitin Gadkari. Patanjali had earlier introduced Ayurveda-based Coronil on June 23 last year. The Haridwar-based firm, however, had to face criticism as it lacked scientific evidence. The Ayush Ministry, back then, had indicated it as 'Immuno-booster' only. Coronil is developed by Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Research Institute. It had started work for an Ayurvedic remedy for Covid-19 in January, 2020.
