BJP youth brigade to get more powers 27.4.2017
New Delhi: The BJP’s stunning victory in the MCD polls is all set to give the party an edge in at least 46 of the 70 Assembly berths in Delhi. BJP was routed in 2015 Delhi assembly polls. The victory has brought back the saffronites yet again in the reckoning.  The MCD poll results would also provide a major boost to the BJP for the forthcoming assembly elections in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Sources said that the state unit may soon give additional responsibilities to those young workers who had aggressively campaigned in the civic polls.  The reason for giving more powers to the youth brigade is to ensure that the party is able to remain in constant touch with the voters at the grassroots level for the next Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in the national capital. A party functionary said that state unit president Manoj Tiwari has already hinted out to his workers that they should not sit back and rather devise innovative strategies to engage voters in the party’s day-to-day functioning in ...

Jammu, April 26

The Congress today condemned the attack on a nomad family in Reasi by alleged cow vigilantes and demanded that they be booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA).

Addressing a press conference, Choudhary Shah Mohammad and Shahnawaz Choudhary, general secretaries of the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee, flayed the state government’s failure to protect citizens.
