Watch: PM Modi asks MPs to send message of support to Army; Tharoor responds

PM Modi asked all parliamentarians send a message of support to the army soldiers who are guarding the border in tough terrains.

Ahead of the parliament session, PM Modi said this session needs to send a message that the nation stands with our jawans.

Our soldiers are standing firm at the borders with a lot of courage, passion and strong resolve to protect their motherland.

They are standing on difficult heights and in a few days, will weather snow.

In the same manner, I am confident MPs will send a message, in one voice that it stands firmly behind soldiers guarding our borders.

Responding to PM Modi, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor said that no political party is against the Army but added that the government is accountable to the Parliament and needs to explain what has been happening at the border and in the talks with the Chinese.

Tharoor added that the nation needs to be taken into confidence over the border tiff with China.

Centre's Jal Jeevan Mission to ease lives in Ladakh

The Central government started work on Jal Jeevan Mission in Ladakh which aims to provide safe drinking water supply to every household by December 2022. Ladakh poses a massive challenge owing to its extreme weather and rough terrain. The water gets frozen in the pipeline during winter disrupting the supply. Various maintenance and technical systems are being incorporated in these projects under the guidance proposed by Water and Power Consultancy Services (WAPCOS). In Ladakh, the proposed projects are expected to cover 125 villages in the next two years. The pilot projects are soon to be commenced in Matho and Saboo villages. The entire project is budgeted at around Rs 362 crore. Jal Jeevan Mission is envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide safe and adequate drinking water to every household through Functional Household Tap Connections (FHTCs).

Watch: Farmer groups hold ‘rail roko’ in Punjab; BJP & Congress trade charges

Farmer groups in Punjab have started their three day long ‘rail roko’ agitation against the three agriculture bills. Farmers were seen gathering on railway tracks as part of their protests. Special passenger trains running from the railways' Ferozepur division have been cancelled fully or partially from September 24 to 26 in view of the farmer outfits' three-day rail roko protest. The call for 'rail roko' agitation was given by the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee and later different farmers' outfits extended their support to it. Parliament has passed the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill; Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill; and Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill and they now await the President’s nod to become laws. Meanwhile, BJP and the Congress are involved in a war of words over the bills. While Congress said that the BJP government is trying to make farmers slaves and help their ‘corporate friends’, BJP has hit back saying that the Congress should have discussed their issues in Parliament rather than boycott the session.
