Dalit organisations, leaders, and MLAs belonging to the community will take part in an andolan on August 7 in an effort to convince BJP MLAs to join hands with them for a Dalit cause. MLA Naushad Solanki said at a press conference following a meeting of various Dalit leaders in the city that they would soon be introducing a Bill in the Assembly which would make it mandatory for SC/ST funds to be used only for their benefits and not other purposes. If this Bill gets passed, Rs 4 lakh crore will be available for the community and you can uplift them in a matter of just a decade, he said.

How does it uplift them?" asked Solanki. He said that even the advertisement expenses of the ...

An Israeli air strike has killed seven militants believed to be linked to the Islamic State group and seeking to infiltrate the country from the Syrian Golan Heights, the army said Thursday. The military carried out the missile strike late Wednesday after the militants crossed a ceasefire line and came within a few hundred metres of the fence in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists. An Israeli aircraft "struck those seven suspects, and today in searches that have been completed on the ground by Israeli troops we found seven bodies in that location, we found five AK-47 assault rifles, we found explosive vests as well as what appears to be grenades," Conricus said.
