It was stupid of Congress to think its terrible record of handling issues pertaining to North-East would not be recalled during Opposition’s #NoConfidenceMotion against Modi Government.
Unless, of course, Rahul Gandhi, Mamata Banerjee, et al were blissfully ignorant.
n1 For example, PM @narendramodi , in his reply to the #NoConfidenceMotion mentioned how Indira Gandhi had ordered IAF to strafe and bomb Mizo villages in undivided Assam in March 1966. The ostensible reason was to put down a Mizo ‘rebellion’. That was only a quarter story.

n1 “Expert committees examined the books from std 6-12. They recommended that if this chapter is dropped, it won't affect the knowledge of the children and an unnecessary burden can be removed...”

Shauchalay ki Story in 4 takes:
In 2014 PM @narendramodi initiated his #SwachhBharat programme, transforming rural life in #India like never before. Individual household toilets have ensured hygiene and dignity. More than 11 crore toilets have been built. Work continues.
n1 In 2013 CM Modi raised the issue of how rural India has cellphones but lacks shauchalayas (toilets).
I recall Congress worthies mocking him — ‘Modi has only toilets to offer’.
It was lost on them that 6 decades after independence, our villages were not open defecation free.

Hello @Independent your correspondent @miss_rai1 has no clue which piece in @nytimes elicited the sharp response from I&B Minister @ianuragthakur Yet she has peddled a false report reeking of bias and you’ve published it without fact-checking.
White West media is truly shameless. Among agenda-driven White West media @Independent outshines others in peddling fiction out of #India
This leftie paper once (in)famously reported Indian Army jawans were draping themselves in white sheets and descending on Kashmir villages at night as ‘ghosts’ to scare Kashmiris.

As recently as 14 Feb 2023 @Forbes was promoting #SiliconValleyBank as one of America’s “best banks”.
This is just one of innumerable examples of how White West media wilfully cuts corners with the truth and brazenly collaborates with scamsters to shield and protect them.
n1 Now compare @Forbes promoting a failing, collapsing American bank #SiliconVallyBank as one of the ‘Best American Banks”, with their report on #India economy over New Year’s weekend. Trillion became billion and world’s fastest growing big economy became an object of ridicule.

Rahul Gandhi’s baseless claim that Opposition is silenced in India’s Parliament is to cover his own tardy performance as MP and exceptionally low participation in proceedings.
His attendance is way lower than Kerala average; way way lower than national average.
n1 There have been entire sessions of Parliament of India when Congress leader and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi has scored Zero Attendance.

Nehru’s disastrous Freight Equalisation Policy which killed industry in east without creating industry elsewhere was in keeping with his deep-seated hate towards Bengalis.
Don’t forget he wanted Hindu Bengali refugees to be sent back and labelled them ‘Permanent Liability’.
n1 One of the first executive decisions Nehru took after Partition was to drastically cut West Bengal’s share of funds to ensure Bengal did not have resources to help Hindu Bengali refugees from East Pakistan.
He went on to claim Hindu Bengalis were coming for ‘free food’.

Along with the concocted Meta stories, @thewire_in has also taken down its bogus 'Tek Fog' stories based on forged documents.
@andymukherjee70 wrote an entire piece based on the fake 'Tek Fog' stories and Bloomberg @business ran it.
@rpollard was the editor responsible for it.
n1 Not the first hate Modi Govt screed by Bloomberg @business . But what this piece exposes is the business model of #FakeNews manufacturers and malicious #Disinformation peddlers especially on @rpollard 's watch.
@thewire_in manufactures, outlets like Bloomberg retail.
