Congress president Rahul Gandhi asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday to ensure the passage of the long-pending Women's Reservation Bill, prompting the government to call the move a political gimmick. Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said Rahul's letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed the double standard of Congress because it was in alliance with those who opposed the proposed legislation. "Will Congress break its alliance or ensure letters of support from them? BJP has always supported the Bill. It's Congress that is sitting with those opposed to it," he said. Rahul said the Bill should be passed during Parliament's Monsoon Session that starts on Wednesday. He offered his party's unconditional support to the Bill that promises to guarantee 33 per cent reservation to women in the Lok Sabha and state Assemblies.

Gujarat: Shahid Yatra gets a lukewarm response from Patel community 25.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Shahid Yatra, a march launched by the Patel community, got a lukewarm response from the ones who launched it. The yatra took off from Unjha Umiyadham temple in Mehsana on Sunday, and except for one Patel MLA and a handful of reservation agitation leaders, no big face made any appearance. The yatra is commemorating 14 youth of the community who died after police had opened fire during reservation agitation during Hardik's rally in August 2015. Hardik's absence seemed to be a cause behind the lackluster show. The PAAS leader was in Anand district to meet the family of Dev, who was murdered by a classmate in Vadodara-based school. Unjha Congress MLA Asha Patel was the only politician who remained present in Yatra. MLAs like Lalit Vasoya, Kirit Patel, Lalit Kagthara and Brijesh Merja who were part of agitation once, did not appear. Most of the Patel agitation members held the yatra as a fiasco. In fact, the yatra was announced by PAAS member Dilip Sabva who now has bitter ties with Hardik Patel. Sabva, ...
