Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Friday asked whether J&K was an integral part of #India or a colony.

J&K is not a colony. It is an integral part of #India. It is #Kashmir based parties who treated India as their colony by playing the separatist card.
Iltija Mufti also said that that #Article370 had nothing to do with development.

Only a person who lives outside the state can afford to be so ignorant. Iltija Mufti lives in Chennai and enjoys all the facilities which are not available here in #Kashmir.
#Article370 and 35A were responsible for J&K's backwardness while only benefiting a select few like the separatists, politicians of mainstream political parties of #Kashmir and their families.

@ani7709 Nagpur - BJP

Although there may not be lead as much as last time for BJP, BJP is in comfortable position to win this seat.

Nana Patole uplifted spirit of INC cadre as he fought against heavyweight minister Gadkari. Gadkari couldn't move out of Nagpur for a while in this phase.
@ani7709 Bhandara-Gondiya - BJP

A neck to neck contest. BJP put a good fight in by poll held previously. Due to Nana Patole moved to Nagpur to contest, BJP somewhat got a relief to make this seat workout.
Both BJP & NCP put fresh candidates. It is going to be a cadre vs cadre fight.
@ani7709 Gadchiroli-Chimur - BJP
No any other CM has visited Gadchiroli as much as Devendra Fadnavis did. Development work has put edge to BJP in this seat.

Dozens of villages in West UP lead hellish lives as a highly polluting industry has killed the river irrigating their region and has contaminated groundwater+soil to the extent they've given up groundwater consumption entirely.

My report for @SwarajyaMag coming shortly.
#Meerut's slaughterhouses first killed their river.

Now meat plants have contaminated their groundwater to the extent that they had to stop its use entirely.

My report from Western #UttarPradesh of a highly polluting industry and the state's abdication. swarajyamag.com/politics/groun…
This is state of groundwater in villages affected by slaughterhouses and meat plants in #Meerut's #Kharkhauda.

Govt has set up overhead water tanks away from villages with piped connections to villages BUT that's it. Villagers maintain those tanks w/ their own money.

At #YMCA #Mumbai for #CSSS's panel discussion on the book "#BabriMasjid, 25 years on..."
.@irfanen begins by describing how the book came about. A little bit of analysis, not so much about whether it is #RamJanmbhoomi. The various authors. But important to look back, understand how we got to Narendra Modi as PM.

After 25 years, Babri pops up mostly at election time
"All kinds of things are happening, yet there is dream of hope." People of India have always given the message that we are not going to believe your "politics of memory" every time elections come. More so now, with the semifinal results.

Muslim girls in a government orphanage married off to Hindu grooms. Officials' amazing response. m.dailyhunt.in/news/india/hin…
#UttarPradesh
This is not the first such incident. This happened in Western UP in the past, there was a furore & then silence. The state can't distinguish in theory but in orphanages, kids made to follow majoritarian practices. One can choose after growing up but not making arrangements for...
I am aware of several incidents. In one orphanage, the superintendent herself told local Muslims to shift Muslims girls to another orphanage (take them from here). It was exception and the city had a Muslim orphanage, which is not very common, else it was not possible.
