Prez: Tough for kids to speak over abuse 17.10.2017 DNA: Top News
President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday highlighted woes of children living in rural areas, maintaining that it was difficult for them to seek redressal for acts of sexual abuse.

Recently, BJP MLA Sangeet Som rekindled the party’s bizarre hate-hate relationship with the Taj Mahal, a monument whose Mughal history makes it an easy target. In comments that came soon after the Yogi Adityanath government reportedly left out the Taj Mahal from an official tourism booklet, Som said, "Many people were pained to see that the Taj Mahal was removed from the list of places (tourist destinations). What type of history? "Is this history that the person who built the Taj Mahal imprisoned his father?
