Death threat to Modi 26.1.2020 Central Chronicle
Jaitley says some political parties using Maoist as instrument against NDA New Delhi, A day after a letter was allegedly found in the house of a person, arrested in connection with the Bhima Khoregaon incident, that said that Naxalites were mulling "Rajiv Gandhi-type incident" and suggesting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi be targeted during his "road shows", Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday said some political parties were using Maoist as an instrument against the ruling NDA.

Smoking marijuana has become a norm of sorts for many people who visit the Pashupati temple on the Mahashivarati festival. Its use is associated with Lord Shiva and on the day of the festival, taking a puff of a cigarette or a pipe containing marijuana buds passed around or sold by sadhus is seen as an homage to the Mahadev, the great god. Although the government classified marijuana and its derivatives as drugs and banned their use and sale in 1973, the authorities have been tolerating their uses during Mahashivaratri. This, perhaps, has partly to do with the religious significance. And at the same time, the sheer number of people indulging in ganja on the festival makes one think that maybe the law enforcement agencies cannot control their action. Rounding them all up would be unrealistic, hence the sensible thing to do is to leave the revellers to their own devices, that is as long as they do not cause social disturbances.
