'Not conducting Parliament's winter session isn't right for democracy': Nawab Malik

Speaking to media in Mumbai on December 03, Minority Affairs Minister of Maharashtra and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) senior leader, Nawab Malik spoke on winter session of Parliament and farmers protest.

Malik said, "Adhir Ranjan's demand for winter session of Parliament is valid.

Not conducting the session and evading questions isn't right for the democracy.

Opposition and farmers are demanding that even it's for 2 days, Parliament session should be held." "Health Secretary says that they never said that the vaccine would be administered to everyone.

Will it be free of cost?

There are the questions.

Modi-led government should call the winter session of the Parliament and discuss the issue of farmers and vaccine," he added.

Parliament dissolution a political issue, SC should dismiss case: Nepal PM

Calling the Nepal government's move to dissolve the lower house of the Parliament to be a 'political move', Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said the Supreme Court should dismiss the case. Oli's comments come as the move, which has been claimed to be unconstitutional by members of the ruling party and the opposition, is being challenged in the apex court, where hearings are currently underway. A total of 13 petitions are filed in the Supreme Court of Nepal, challenging the decision of Oli and President Bidhya Devi Bhandari to dissolve the House of Representatives, the lower house parliament, claiming it unconstitutional. The apex court has yet to give a verdict on the writ petitions. Following the dissolution of the Lower House and the announcement of midterm elections, the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) witnessed its vertical split as the already-strained ties between the two rival factions of the party have further deepened. The Oli-led faction of the ruling party is backing the dissolution of the House while the other faction led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Madhav Kumar Nepal is firmly opposing the government's move and demanding the restoration of parliament.

‘TMC should join Congress to defeat BJP in West Bengal’: Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury

The Congress proposed that the TMC should merge with it instead to put up a united fight against the BJP. The BJP, which has emerged as a potent force in the state, said the TMC's suggestion amounted to admission that it was not in a position to take on the saffron party on its own in the assembly polls in West Bengal due in April-May. "If the Left Front and the Congress are genuinely anti-BJP, they should rally behind Mamata Banerjee in her fight against the communal and divisive politics of the saffron party," senior TMC MP Sougata Roy said. Reacting to the TMC's proposal, state Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blamed the West Bengal's ruling party for the growth of the BJP in the state. "We are not interested in aligning with the TMC. Why is the TMC now interested in an alliance with us after poaching our MLAs over the last 10 years. If Mamata Banerjee is in keen on fighting the BJP, then she should join the Congress as it is the only pan-India platform to fight against communalism," he said. Watch the full video for more details.

Mamata Banerjee should join hands with Congress to stop BJP in WB: Adhir Chowdhury

Congress leader Adhir Chowdhury on January 15 offered Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee to join his party to stop Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to form the government in the state in upcoming WB assembly elections. He said, "They felt it'll be difficult for them to survive without Congress. They came to power with Congress' help but then left no stone unturned to finish Congress. They weakened secular parties like Congress and Left in WB, which made a communal party like BJP rise." "She (Mamata Banerjee) should come to Congress as there's no option other than Congress to stop BJP. If they can feel this, they should join forces under Congress' leadership. Congress had kept secularism intact for 100 years in this nation by facing BJP and its ancestors," he added. Adhir statement comes after Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Saugata Roy asked Left and the Congress to support CM Banerjee in her fight against BJP if they are "genuinely" anti-BJP.
