Once considered a symbol of Indian culture, what has happened in Bengal today is not hidden from anyone.
2/The communal riots against the #Hindus have started happening for quite some time and now the situation has been that the banning of celebrating the festival has started.
But the famous American journalist #JanetLevy has now written the article on #WBengal

L Victoria Gowri's appointment as #MadrasHighCourt judge brought up in #RajyaSabha
TMC MP @jawharsircar on Law Ministry stating that differences of opinion between executive and judiciary are mutually reconciled: So am I to understand that all differences are mutually reconciled?...
...And in the same sentence you have used the words, "Only the appropriate person is appointed as a judge". Do you consider Victoria Gowri's appointment to really (be of) an appropriate person? One who has been accused in public of casteist remarks, of remarks against minorities?

In the last week, not only 27 Opposition MPs have been suspended (4 in #LokSabha, 23 in #RajyaSabha), but as many as 97 Questions asked by these MPs have been DELETED & Govt has avoided answering these Qs!
There is NO provision in RULES to permit such deletion of Qs!
This dubious practice, which isn't permitted by Rules & has no logic, was first noticed in #MonsoonSession 2020, repeated in Monsoon Session 2021, Winter Session 2021 and now happening again in current #MonsoonSession2022.
See our earlier #Thread-
In the current #MonsoonSession, following is the tally of Qs 'DELETED'. Also, see pics of some Deleted Qs.
- 11 Qs asked by 4 suspended Opposition MPs in #LokSabha
