PM Modi to be invited by Pakistan to attend SAARC summit: Report

The summit has not been held since 2016, when India decided to pull out of a summit to be hosted by Pakistan following a string of terror attacks. Since SAARC works by consensus, the summit could not be held.

2019 General Elections, Tough Road ahead for BJP ,Modi May lose next LokSabha Elections

CP Rahul Gandhi Presided His First Congress Working Committee Meet

Hello,

The last week marked a significant milestone in the congress party's run-up to the 2019 General Election campaign as Congress President Rahul Gandhi Presided over his first Extended Congress Working Committee.

Right from the Independence struggle , the CWC has always been a unit that sought to give a voice to every citizen of the country. Congress Working Committee in the past have been instrumental in making decisions that helped steer our young democracy in the direction of ideas of tolerance, respect, and secularism that form the foundation of India.

With the new Congress Working Committee, Mr Gandhi has struck a wonderful balance between senior leaders and young voices of India. The new CWC is a refection of Congress President Rahul Gandhi's vision for India and it consist of individuals who represent the massive diversity of our country. The CWC's delibrations and actions led our country to achieve Independence from colonial rule. In these difficult times, the new CWC will, yet again, rise up to the occasion and restore the ideals of our Constitution by leading the Congress Party to victory next year.

In one of the major new breaks of the week, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's lies in the Parliament stood exposed as the Congress party mounted a fresh attack on the Narendra Modi goverment over the Rafael Deal (more like, Rafael Scam). This Scam has looted the indian taxpayer of Rs 1,30,000 crore and the Prime Minister still refuses to come clean.

Shockingly, the Defence Minister's statement massively contradict the ones issued by her own goverment. Despite being questioned on the Rafael Deal in Parliament by Congress President Rahul Gandhi, neither the defense minister nor PM Modi have given a satisfactory explanation for why the deal was inflated and then taken away from a PSU like HAL ( Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd) and given awayy to a private corporate friend of the Prime Minister.

Several questions about this deal remain unanswered and the Modi government lies stand exposed in front of the nation.
The Rafael Deal pertains to the defense of our country, and the fact that PM Modi would care more about his friends than about national security merely goes on to show where the priorities and loyalties of the BJP lie.

The Modi government's incompetence in stemming the rise of black money was also exposed by the Congress party last week in a press conference. New data shows that the mojority of money flowing into the country after 2014 is from tax haven countries. With a new scam breaking out every week, it is no surprise then that the Modi govenment has failed to deliver on its promise of curbing black money. In fact, as we have seen over the past 4 years, the Modi government has actively aided and abetted all those who have stolen money from India and fled off to foreign lands without any consequences.

Speaking of looting, last week also saw a devolopment in the case of PM Modi's "Mehul Bhai" who fled the country after engaging in the nation's biggest bank loot. While Nirav "Chota" Modi remains far away from the hands of law, it turns out that PM Modi's "Mehul Bhai" has acquired the passport of Antigua and Barbuda. The fact that he was able to do this despite being an accused in India's largest bank loot raises serious question about the commitment of PM Modi's government in bringing him to justice.

It can be safely assumed that a bank looter cannot secure the passport of a new country without friends in high places. While we understand that he might be "Mehul Bhai" to our PM Modi, the job of the government is to bring criminals to justice regardless of who they are and who they might be close to. It is time for the nation to remind our PM about his Rajdharma yet again. While we are sure that he will continue to remain mum over this, we can sitll reassure ourselves by remembering thi: Bas Ek Aur Saal.

We are all aware of the growing menace of online bullying and trolling ever since PM Modi came to power. On social media platforms , anyone that disagrees with or criticism PM Modi is routinely subjected to a volley of abuses and trolling. Women on social media have also been subjected to profanity and rape threats. Sadly, a vast mojority of these bullies and trolls are also followed by the PM himself. Amidst such an environment, it is important for us to understand how bullying works and to equip ourselves with the necesary tools to fight this online menace.

Last week, the congress party conducted an anti-bully workshop which saw personalities from all walks of life address young Indians about how to deal with government sponsored trolls. Organised in association with Rajiv Gandhi institute for Contemporary Studies, this workshop raised some important issues about contemporary online discourse in India, the Modi government's support and sponsorship of online bullies, and also about means and ways to combat these trolls.

And this closes my roundup of the week gone by,I wish you all a wonderful week ahead and encourage you to keep fighting the good fight but with a lot of love and tolerance.
