Unfortunately, @KolkataPolice stopped our march midway despite prior permission. We decided to stand our ground by sitting in front of the barricade.

Nehru did not create IITs. Dr BC Roy, CM of West Bengal, set up first IIT in Cal in 1950; it later moved to Kharagpur. IIT Kharagpur Act came in 1956. Soviet Union set up IIT Powai; US set up IIT Kanpur; Germans set up IIT Madras (all of them with trade surplus and aid).
We learned this in junior school as compulsory GK. I guess General Knowledge is dangerously Right Wing shyt now, so declared by our Left Liberals. What to do? #IIT #Nehru
Just in case @madversity is interested, the idea of setting up Indian institutes of technology took shape in 1946 with Humayun Kabir leading the way and Nalini Ranjan Sarkar Committee preparing a report. Extant records do not mention any role played by Nehru. So.

Amazing. Lorry filled with 200 peacefuls landed in NRS Hospital in Kolkata after some death, beat a junior doctor so much his skull cracked. Poor soul now fighting for life in the ICU.
@MamataOfficial arrest these??
Kolkata is being runover by non Bengali peacefuls who claim to be from Lahore.
Rather than even ACKNOWLEDGE the murderous attack on a doctor by thugs who claim to be from Pakistan, Mamata's tyrannical govt issues a Firmaan... All OPD services to be strengthened...
Perhaps more doctors' skulls need "peaceful" treatment

@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.

Here is the judgement in Subrata Chattoraj vs Union of India. 2014 judgement delivered by the then CJI Thakur and Justice Nagappan. Thus judgement ordered the CBI investigation in Saradha scam. #MamataBanerjee #MamatablocksCBI #WestBengal #MamataVsCBI

That financial scam nicknamed chit-fund scam that has hit the States of West Bengal, Tripura, Assam and Odisha involves collection of nearly 10,000 crores. #MamataVsCBI #mamtablockscbi #MamataBanerjee
More than 25 lakh claims have so far been received by the Commissions of Enquiries set up in the Odisha & West Bengal which is indicative of the magnitude of scam in terms of number of citizens that have been defrauded. #MamtaBanerjee #MamataVsCBI #MamatablocksCBI

Though I am really glad that #arsenic contamination of #groundwater in India, and specially #WestBengal is getting the attention it deserves, there is a major issue that needs wider discussion.
There is a simplistic argument that arsenic naturally occurs in the #Gangetic belt, the author uses the term “#geological curse”. If this is the case, why is heavy #arsenic contamination being reported from #Jharkhand and #Chattisgarh in Central India?
A possible answer to that may be traced to this MIT paper that was published in @NatureGeosci on #anthropogenic influence on #groundwater #arsenic contamination in #Bangladesh nature.com/articles/ngeo6…

Let me educate you @sardesairajdeep

The National movement set forth by Bankim Chandra, Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo,
Vande Mataram,mantra of an awakened🇮🇳, was diluted in the hands of Nehru’s leadership!

History-Muslims could dived 🇮🇳 due to being patronized by a faction👇🏻
2
INC extended concessions to Muslims to join freedom struggle
But
They remained British allies upto the end.
Leader of a leftist faction (harbouring a deep seated animosity against #Hindu society & culture, ignorant of both #Sanatana / Islam) in #Congress was JL #Nehru !
3
It had been proclaimed in 1947 that the so called communal problem had been solved forever;

hardly 70yrs have passed and the Muslims have started speaking the same language which they used before the partition of India?
