Govt-schools nexus, says Pratap Singh Khachariyawas 19.4.2018 DNA: India
Taking a jibe on BJP govt on fee hike, Jaipur Congress president, Pratap Singh Khachariyawas, accused the state government of being hand-in-glove with the private schools. “Rajasthan government has joined hands with the private schools to promote corruption. Several state-based students and their parents have to bear the brunt of the collaboration. The essentials like food and petrol have already become expensive due to inflation, and the unreasonable hike in the fees is just hitting the pockets all the more,” Khachariyawas said. The leader, in collaboration with several Congress workers, demonstrated agitation in 16 areas of the city by burning the effigies of chief minister Vasundhara Raje and education minister Vasudev Devnani, on Wednesday. The effigies were burnt in areas including Collectorate circle, Sanganer Airport, Ramganj, Jagatpura, and Malviya Nagar, among others. “The government should immediately issue directives regarding those schools who have increased their fees without justification,” ...

President Ram Nath Kovind called on Wednesday the rape and murder of the eight-year-old girl in Jammu's Kathua heinous, barbaric and shameful, and expressed concern over children falling victim to gruesome crimes across India.

Congress protest shows frustration: Prabhulal Saini 18.4.2018 DNA: India
Agriculture Minister Prabhulal Saini has countered Congress agitation against the increase in fees in private schools. He said that opposing the increase in fees is the frustration of Congress.

BJP today alleged anti-national forces were behind the violence in some parts of Kerala yesterday in connection with the 'hartal' observed in protest against the Kathua gang rape incident. BJP President Kummanom Rajasekharan demanded that those who indulged in the violence be booked for terror and the matter be handed over to NIA for further probe. He was speaking to reporters after visiting shops and houses targeted during the violence at Thiroor and Thanoor areas in Malappuram district.

Pravin Togadia goes on indefinite fast to protest Modi govt’s ‘inability to deliver promises’ 17.4.2018 DNA: Opinion
Former Vishva Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ‘deceiving the people of India’. Togadia, who recently quit the VHP, on Tuesday launched an indefinite fast in Ahmedabad to protest the inaction of the government in constructing the Ram temple in Ayodhya. “Narendra Modi walked on the corpses of 59 kar sevaks who lost their lives in the Godhra massacre in 2002. Three hundred Hindus were killed by bullets fired by the Gujarat police during the 2002 riots when Modi was the state chief minister. Over 50,000 people were arrested of which a number have been sentenced to life imprisonment. These people are facing these consequences only because they wanted a Ram temple built in Ayodhya. They voted Modi to power because they wanted to see a temple,” he claimed. The former VHP leader also accused the ruling BJP of double-standards. “When the Congress was in power, the BJP would shoot over our shoulders for the construction of the temple, but when they ...
