Published

on

Supriya Sule, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP): You divided state(J&K),I don’t know why? A lot was talked about Andhra. I was here when it was debated. 2 wrongs don’t make a right. Just because something went wrong that time, doesn’t mean you need to make the same mistake. What’s the difference b/w this&that govt? NCP MP says “I sit on seat 462, Farooq Abdullah sits on seat 461. He’s elected from J&K, we can’t hear him today.This debate will be incomplete if you ask me. HM says,”Farooq Abdullah has neither been detained nor arrested. He’s at his home,out of his own free will”.

Akhilesh Yadav, Samajwadi Party, in Lok Sabha on Article370revoked: We are with the country. But now my question is about the status of Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Government should answer this.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Congress: Kashmir has always been under the attention of the international forum. If Kashmir issue is so easy, why should this govt yesterday address the embassy people of various countries? I simply sought a clarification from the govt.

Pralhad Joshi, BJP, in Lok Sabha: When the country is celebrating, Congress is speaking in the voice of Pakistan. Pakistan govt official statement said it’s a dark day. Congress leaders have stated it’s a dark day. What does it mean? Pak says it’s a dark day&you’re joining them!

West Bengal CM, Mamata Banerjee: We cannot support this bill. We cannot vote for this bill. They should have spoken to all political parties and the Kashmiris. If you need to arrive at a permanent solution, then you have to talk to all stakeholders.

Mayavati, Uttar Pradesh: “There was a long-pending demand to scrap Articles 370 (which gave a special status to Jammu and Kashmir) and 35A of the Constitution with the intention of ensuring social, economic and political justice. The BSP now expects that the people of the region will be benefitted from the Centre’s decision,” the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said in a tweet.
In another tweet, she said, “The decision to make Ladakh a Union territory was a long-pending demand of the Buddhist people living there, which has been fulfilled. The BSP also welcomes this. The Buddhist followers of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar are feeling very happy.”

To commemorate the Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s 75th birthday, pastry chef Rakesh Kumar Sahu from Begunia of Khordha who runs an institute of baking and pastry art at Tanka Pani Road made a chocolate sculpture weighing around 72 kg. He along with his six students worked for 15 days to finish the sculpture.

Sahu, a sports lover said that he has come up with the idea of creating the sculpture as a tribute to Naveen Patnaik for his constant support for Indian Hockey from the last few years which resulted in a stunning performance by the Men’s and Women’s National Teams in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.

He said that “I was celebrating the bronze medal win just like the rest of the country when it struck me that I should do something special for our Chief Minister who stood by the National Hockey Teams like a rock during its lowest phase.”

Sahu and his students have faced many problems during the making of chocolate sculpture and they have had many sleepless nights due to temperature variation and changes in moisture levels in their workshop. Odisha Sports Minister Tusharkanti Behera in Kalinga Hockey Stadium on Naveen Patnaik’s birthday on Saturday unveiled the chocolate sculpture.

Naveen Patnaik is an Indian politician serving as the current and 14th Chief Minister of Odisha. He is also the president of the Biju Janata Dal and is the longest-serving chief minister of Odisha and as of 2021, one of the longest-serving chief ministers of any Indian state, holding the post for more than two decades, and only the third Indian chief Minister after Pawan Chamling and Jyoti Basu to win five consecutive terms as Chief Minister of an Indian state.
