On Jan 2 2021, the newsrack service has been shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it was time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

This is an archive of previously crawled content that will be kept around for a few weeks.

Oppn trying to worsen atmosphere: Adityanath on price rise 26.5.2018 General News
Attacking rival political parties, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today said that "opposition is unnecessarily trying to worsen the atmosphere" over price rise. Speaking to reporters, Aditynath said the fearful picture which the opposition is painting, actually does not exist. "The Centre is alert as far as price rise is concerned. The prices of the essential commodities have been controlled. The opposition is unnecessarily trying to worsen the atmosphere," he said. On a question about garlanding the statue of Chhtrapati Shivaji in Mumbai while allegedly wearing a khadau (wooden slippers), Adityanath said, "I know how garlanding of a statue has to be done. In this context, no one should advise me." Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had earlier accused Adityanath of garlanding the statue of Shivaji while wearing wooden slippers.
