Delhi Archbishop calls for prayers, fast before 2019 polls; says it has nothing to do with Modi Govt 22.5.2018 General News
Delhi's Archbishop Anil Couto has kicked up a storm with his remark that a "turbulent political atmosphere" posed a threat to India's democratic principles and secular fabric, a charge rejected by the government which today said the comments reflected his "prejudiced" mindset. Couto had written a letter to all parish priests and religious institutions in the Delhi archdiocese a few days before the May 12 Karnataka elections, calling for a "prayer campaign" ahead of the 2019 general elections. The archbishop, who also asked Christians to fast every Friday "for the nation", today clarified his letter had nothing to do with the Narendra Modi government. While Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said India did not discriminate on the basis of religion or sect, his ministerial colleague Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi asked the archbishop to come out of his "prejudiced" mindset and asserted that minorities had progressed at a fast pace under the current government. Couto's comments were criticised by ...

Can't help if Rahul sees RSS in everything: Shah 22.5.2018 General News
BJP president Amit Shah today dismissed Rahul Gandhi's claim that the government wants to appoint officers of RSS's choice in central services, saying he cannot help if the Congress chief sees the Hinduva organisation in everything. He was responding to Gandhi's tweet in the wake of a proposal seeking to bring in major changes in the allocation of services to candidates who clear the all-India examination. It reveals Modi's plan to appoint officers of RSS's choice into the central services by manipulating the merit list using subjective criteria, instead of exam rankings, Gandhi claimed. "Tell me where the RSS comes in this? The examination will continue as it does now, there will be no arbitrary control over who will pass it. It is about evaluating performance in training. It is anyway a suggestion and no decision has been taken? Where does the RSS come in this? He sees the RSS in everything. What I can do," Shah told a press conference. He was asked to comment on Gandhi's tweet. The

'Turbulent political atmosphere' in country, says Delhi archbishop; clarifies after getting panned 22.5.2018 General News
The archbishop of Delhi, Anil Couto, has claimed that a "turbulent political atmosphere" in the country posed a threat to India's constitutional principles and secular fabric, and appealed to followers of his faith for a "prayer campaign". However, as he faced criticism from BJP leaders, the archbishop today said his comments were not directed at the Narendra Modi government. Couto had written a letter to all parish priests and religious institutions in the Delhi archdiocese a few days before the May 12 Karnataka elections. The archbishop, in his letter, said, "We are witnessing a turbulent political atmosphere, which poses threat to democratic principles enshrined in the Constitution and the secular fabric of our nation." Reacting to the letter today, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh affirmed that India does not discriminate against anybody on the basis of religion or sect, and such things will never be allowed in the country. Referring to the 2019 General Elections, Couto had asked

Come out of your prejudiced mindset: Naqvi to Delhi archbishop 22.5.2018 General News
Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today asked the archbishop of Delhi to come out of his "prejudiced" mindset and asserted that minorities have progressed at a fast pace in the four years of the Modi government, which has worked for "development without discrimination". The Minority Affairs Minister also said that as long as people look at the Narendra Modi government with a prejudiced mind, they cannot see the progress it has made. Naqvi's comments came in response to a letter written to all parish priests in the national capital by Delhi archbishop Anil Couto, who has asked for a prayer campaign to be launched and appealed for fasting on Fridays ahead of the 2019 General Elections. Citing that a "turbulent political atmosphere" posed a "threat to the democratic principles enshrined in the Constitution and the secular fabric" of the nation, the letter said, "It is our hallowed practice to pray for our country and its political leaders all the time, but all the more so when we ...

No ban on day-dreaming: Javadekar on Rahul's prime ministerial aspirations 22.5.2018 General News
Union minister Prakash Javadekar today took a dig at Congress president Rahul Gandhi's remark that he is ready to be the prime minister, saying there is no ban on "day-dreaming". The Congress has lost 20 states and it is in power only in a couple of states now. "If on that basis, Gandhi is thinking of becoming the prime minister, then there is no ban on day-dreams in this country," Javadekar told a regional television channel, when asked about the Congress chief's remark. Gandhi had recently said he is ready to become the prime minister if his party emerges as the "biggest" party in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Asked if Gandhi could pose a challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the parliamentary elections next year, Javadekar said, "A smart tweet or big talk is not politics. It is much more than that." The BJP had only two MPs in the Lok Sabha in 1984 and it won 282 seats in the 2014 general polls. The Congress was then 400, which reduced to 44, he pointed out. "There are lessons
