Samajwadi Party expects Congress to reciprocate seat-sharing in Maharashtra, Haryana Polls

LUCKNOW: The Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance will face a test of tenacity during the upcoming state assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana, as well as the bypoll to 10 Uttar Pradesh assembly seats. Both INDIA bloc partners have decided to contest together after a strong performance in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections in UP. SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, focusing on the expansion plan of his party, is expected to seek a share of seats in Maharashtra and Haryana, where Congress is a major force. This move mirrors Congresss request for a share in the 10 seats up for grabs in the upcoming by-polls to the UP assembly. The bypolls are necessitated by the election of sitting MLAs to the Lok Sabha. Breaching the saffron citadel: How SP shocked BJP in seat where Ayodhya falls The assembly polls in Maharashtra, Jharkhand, and Haryana are scheduled for later this year, with the UP bypolls possibly taking place simultaneously or earlier. Political pundits suggest that Congresss stance on sharing seats with the SP in Maharashtra and Haryana will influence SPs concessions in the forthcoming UP assembly by-polls. Of the 10 seats, one is expected to be vacated following the conviction of Kanpur SP MLA Irfan Solanki in a land grabbing case. Significantly, the polls to the 228-member Maharashtra Assembly and the 90-member Haryana House will determine the future of the SP-Congress alliance within the INDIA bloc. MVA agrees on equal seat-sharing formula for Maharashtra polls; Mahayuti still undecided According to SP sources, the party has conveyed to Congress its expectation of reciprocation in Maharashtra and Haryana, akin to the support shown during the Lok Sabha polls in UP. The decision on seat-sharing for UP by-polls will only be discussed after clarity on seat-sharing in Maharashtra and Haryana, said a senior SP leader. The SP had allocated 17 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats to Congress, of which Congress won six in UP. SP contested 62 seats, allocating one to INDIA bloc ally Trinamool Congress, which was lost to the BJP. The SP-Congress alliance outperformed the ruling NDA alliance, winning 43 seats (37 by SP and six by Congress) in UP, while the NDA secured only 36 . A senior SP leader and close confidante of Akhilesh Yadav mentioned that the party leadership was instructed to be prepared to contest at least half a dozen seats in Haryana. Meanwhile, Maharashtra SP unit chief Abu Asim Azmi, who is also an MLA, stated that the SP Maharashtra leadership would soon discuss the states assembly poll plans with Akhilesh Yadav, with a particular focus on the number of seats to be contested under the alliance with Congress. The SP has been winning seats in Maharashtra, currently holding two MLAs in the state assembly and having won three seats in 2014. The SP has adhered to alliance dharma in UP, and Congress reciprocated by sparing a seat in Madhya Pradesh. We now expect Congress to share seats in the forthcoming Maharashtra and Haryana polls, said a senior SP leader. In areas like Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, where UP migrants and Muslims are significant, the SP has strong chances of winning. The SPs prospects would improve further if contested in alliance with Congress, said the leader. In Haryana, at least 20 assembly seats have a Yadav-Muslim combination as a decisive factor for the INDIA bloc if SP and Congress contest together, he added.

Ayodhya: Ram temple's roof leaking after heavy showers, says chief priest

Ayodhya: Water was leaking from the roof of the sanctum sanctorum at the Ram temple here after the first heavy showers since it was opened to the public, its chief priest Acharya Satyendra Das said on Monday.Alleging negligence in the construction of the temple, Das claimed that there was also no arrangement for the drainage of rainwater from the temple premises after the showers on Saturday midnight and urged the temple authorities to take necessary corrective measures. After the senior officials were informed about the incident of water leaking from the roof, the chairman of the temple construction committee, Nripendra Mishra, reached the temple and gave instructions to repair the roof and make them waterproof, temple trust sources said. Speaking separately to reporters about the progress of temple construction, Mishra said that work on the first floor was on and will be finished by July this year, and expressed the hope that the construction of the temple will be completed by December. Acharya Satyendra Das told reporters there was heavy leakage from the roof of the temple's sanctum sanctorum in the first heavy showers that occurred at midnight on Saturday. Rainwater was leaking from the roof directly above the place where the priest sits in front of Ram Lalla's idol and where people come for VIP darshan, he said. It is very surprising that engineers from all over the country are building the Ram temple. The temple was inaugurated on January 22. But, no one knew that if it rains, the roof will leak. It is surprising that the roof of a world-famous temple is leaking. Why did this happen? Such an incident is happening in the presence of such big engineers, which is very wrong, he said. Meanwhile, rains on Saturday night caused severe waterlogging on the Rampath road and its adjoining laneshere. While sewer water entered houses in the area, the Rampath road and other newly constructed roads in Ayodhya caved in at some places. There was waterlogging from Jalwanpura to Hanumangarhi Bhaktipath and from Tedhi Bazaar to the inner areas, locals said. Reacting to the sewer water entering houses in the lanes of Rampath during the rain, Ayodhya Mayor Girish Pati Tripathi said, I have started damage control since morning. I have deployed several teams of the municipality to remove water from the houses. However, attempts to seek the response of top officials of the Public Works Department (PWD) did not fructify. Meanwhile, the Congress accused the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of indulging in corruption in the temple construction and building of civic facilities in the temple town. Be it the coffin of the martyrs or the temple of God, all these have become opportunities for corruption for the BJP. Even the symbols of faith and purity in the country are just opportunities of loot for them, Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Ajay Rai alleged in a statement on Monday. It has become clear from the statement of chief priest Satyendra Das that water is leaking in the sanctum sanctorum of the Ram temple built at a cost of crores due to the first rain and there is no proper drainage system, he said. Rai said, Not only this, the mask of the BJP, which was beating the drum of development of Ayodhya, has come off with the road collapsing at many places on the Rampath built at a cost of Rs 624 crore. He alleged that the BJP has made Ayodhya a hub of corruption by getting second-rate construction done in a hurry only to gain electoral benefits. The BJP has only done injustice to the people there by not giving them proper compensation, he alleged.

Odisha plans expansion of bus services to major pilgrimage sites across India

BHUBANESWAR: Odisha is planning to augment the operations of government buses and connect the state with prominent pilgrimage sites in the country. As part of the plan, buses of Odisha State Road Transport Corporation (OSRTC) will be engaged to ferry devotees to the religious sites. In the first phase, we are planning to launch bus services from Odisha to pilgrimage destinations like Ayodhya, Varanasi and Mathura (Vrindavan) in Uttar Pradesh, Shree Mahakaleshwar Temple in Madhya Pradeshs Ujjain and Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh, Commerce and Transport Minister Bibhuti Bhushan Jena told The New Indian Express on Monday. Jena said bus operations to connect Odisha with other famous religious places will be launched at a later stage. Our priority is to provide bus services to everyone in the state. Efforts will also be made to improve the revenue of OSRTC and make its business profitable like that of Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC), he said. Sources said Andhra Pradesh is unwilling to permit private buses of Odisha to carry out operations between the two states as it may impact the business of APSRTC. Hence, operation of OSRTC buses in Andhra Pradesh and other neighbouring states will be increased in the coming days. As of now, OSRTC has a fleet of at least 478 buses. For convenience of devotees, the government has also planned to provide bus services from every block headquarters to Puri during Rath Yatra festival on July 7. In a bid to foster a sustainable public transport system, the government will run more electric buses in Odisha. Besides, e-buses will be engaged to carry out inter-state operations at places having EV charging infrastructure. We are expecting to receive a decent number of vehicles under PM-eBus Sewa scheme, said Jena. The minister also informed that OSRTC bus operations between Umerkote and Visakhapatnam, Bhubaneswar and Machkund and Cuttack and Baliguda will resume soon. On the day, Jena held a meeting with Transport Secretary Usha Padhee, commissioner Amitabh Thakur and OSRTC officials and discussed measures to strengthen bus services in the state.

18th Lok Sabha special session: Drama, fireworks on Day I

NEW DELHI: The opening day of the special session of the 18th Lok Sabha witnessed dramatic scenes on Monday as opposition leaders, including Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, waved copies of the Constitution when Prime Minister Narendra Modi walked up to take his oath as a member of the House. Apart from Modi, several Cabinet ministers, including Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh, celebrities like Kangana Ranaut and 16 from NDA ally Telugu Desam Party (TDP) took their oaths. While 280 members were sworn in on Monday, the rest, including Rahul, will take their oath on Tuesday. The countrys linguistic diversity was on display as MPs took their oaths in Sanskrit, Hindi, Dogri, Bengali, Assamese, Gujarati and Odia, apart from English. In his pre-session remarks, Modi took a swipe at the Congress over the Emergency, calling it a black spot on democracy when the Constitution was discarded. Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge was equally pungent in his response, accusing Modi of imposing an undeclared Emergency in the country in the last 10 years. The session began on a combative note with the boycott by three Opposition MPs from a panel to assist pro-tem speaker Bhartruhari Mahtab. The Opposition was up in arms against the government for ignoring eight-term Lok Sabha member Kodikunnil Suresh for that post. President Droupadi Murmu had appointed a panel comprising K Suresh, TMCs Sudip Bandopadhyay and DMKs T R Baalu along with two other BJP MPs to assist Mahtab. However, the three Opposition MPs refused to be a part of the panel on Monday morning. Most of the Congress MPs held a copy of the Constitution while taking their oath. Rahul sat along with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and Ayodhya MP Awadhesh Prasad in the front row on the Opposition side. The BJP poked the Congress with party chief J P Nadda writing to Kharge, questioning the stoic silence of his party on the recent hooch tragedy in Tamil Nadu. The coming days of the session are likely to see a belligerent Opposition taking on the NDA government on several issues, including the NEET-NET exam paper leak row, three criminal laws, Manipur violence and the recent train accident.

Security Pulled from Ayodhya's Hanumangarhi Temple Priest After Escalating Tensions Raju Das, the influential chief priest of Ayodhya's Hanumangarhi temple, had his security detail withdrawn following a heated argument with district officials. The confrontation took place during a meeting convened by two Uttar Pradesh ministers to review BJP's performance in the Faizabad Lok Sabha seat, which the party lost. Ayodhya District Magistrate Nitish Kumar stated that the withdrawal of Das' security was due to multiple complaints accusing the priest of using his security personnel to intimidate traders and the general public. Kumar elaborated that Das has numerous criminal cases against him, which further justified the removal. Das, on the other hand, accused the district administration of corruption, claiming his security was revoked because he openly criticized officials for their alleged misconduct. He recently met with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath but insisted that security concerns were not part of their discussion.

MP: Mohan meets PM, HM amid buzz over bureaucratic reshuffle

Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh chief minister Mohan Yadav on Thursday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi amid buzz over a major bureaucratic reshuffle in the state. An official press release issued here however said that Mr Yadav briefed Mr Modi on the progress of the two river-linking projects being undertaken in the state currently. He invited Mr Modi to lay the foundation for the Ken-Betwa river linking project. The state government is also undertaking a project to link the rivers of Parvati, Kalisingh and Chambal in the state. This apart, the chief minister has apprised the PM of the implementation of various welfare schemes in the state, the press release said. Mr Yadav who left here on Tuesday for a three-day-visit to Delhi to meet different Union ministers to discuss the various ongoing projects in the state also met Union home minister Amit Shah there. The chief minister also met Union urban and housing development minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Union forest and environment minister Bhupendra Yadav in Delhi to discuss various projects related to Madhya Pradesh. Mr Yadav is scheduled to visit Ayodhya on Thursday to attend various religious functions there. He is scheduled to return to Delhi on Thursday night from Ayodhya. The chief ministers meeting with the PM and HM has triggered speculations here that a major reshuffle in bureaucracy was on the cards. The bureaucratic reshuffle in the state was expected ever since Mr Yadav assumed power in the state in the November, 2023 Assembly elections. He has replaced four-time chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the post after BJPs landslide victory in the polls. However, the long pending bureaucratic reshuffle was reportedly held back due to the 2024 general elections. Mr Yadav is most likely to overhaul the bureaucracy by going for a major reshuffle of bureaucracy, sources said.

India needs PM Modi to make it Vishwaguru: Former Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam

India needs PM Modi to make it Vishwaguru: Former Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam After BJP witnessed defeat in Uttar Pradesh's Faizabad constituency in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, former Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam said that victory and defeat are inevitable and asserted that India needs Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make it a 'Vishwaguru.' Speaking with ANI, Krishnam said, ... In a democracy, victory and defeat keep happening but Ayodhya has never lost because if Ayodhya loses, Sanatana Dharma will lose and that can't happen. On Modi's third stint as Prime Minister, Krishnam said, People chose PM Modi as Prime Minister for the third time. This is historic as well as a proud moment. The country needs PM Modi to make it a 'Vishwaguru' (global leader). And I feel that if Modi had not become PM for the third time, India would have scattered. Praising PM Modi for doing the 'Pran Pratishtha', Krishnam said, Any political party winning or losing is a different thing but PM Modi did 'Pran Pratishtha' of Ram temple and this has been written in the history of India and Sanatana Dharma in golden letters, and nobody can erase this. As far as the cultural and religious viewpoint is concerned, Ayodhya from a religious viewpoint has emerged top in religious tourism. The 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony of Lord Ram was held on January 22, with the main rituals performed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The idol of Ram Lalla was unveiled after the rituals. Notably, the Samajwadi Party (SP) in the Lok Sabha elections won 37 seats, the BJP won 33, Congress won six, Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) won two, and Aazad Samaj Party (Kanshi Ram) and Apna Dal (Soneylal) won one seat each in Uttar Pradesh.

Woman urges UP, Odisha Chief Ministers to help trace husband

JEYPORE: A 69-year-old woman of Balda village in Nandapur block of Koraput district has appealed the chief ministers of UP and Odisha to help her trace her husband who went missing during a trip to Varanasi. Pravati Chalan said her husband Raghunath Chalan (74) went missing in Varanasi on June 7. Pravati, Raghunath and a few others had gone on a trip to Ayodhya and Varanasi in the first week of June.

Andhra Pradesh Vastu experts hidden hand in Nalandas revival

VIJAYAWADA : Very few know that the Vastu plans for the renovation of the ancient Nalanda University were set by Pandit Mudunuri Venkata Ramakrishna Raju, who hails from Manthenavari Palem village in Bapatla district. Nalanda University , which Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated on Wednesday in Rajgir of Nalanda district near Patna in Bihar, has a connection with Andhra Pradesh. Originally built 1600 years ago as the first residential university in the world with 108 subjects, Bakhtiyar Khilji demolished it and has been renovated after hundreds of years, making it accessible to international students once again. The northern states have been seeking support from the south, mainly Andhra Pradesh, for expertise in various Sanatana Dharmas. In recent times, the Mula Mantra of Ayodhya Ram Mandir was provided by Annadanam Chidambara Sastry from Chirala. Now, Ramakrishna Rajus name has come to light with his contributions to Nalanda University in Vastu. Ramakrishna Raju, who lives in Pragathi Nagar in Hyderabad, was officially appointed by the university authorities on September 13, 2019, for an initial period of one year to study and identify the Geopathic Stress Zones in the new campus land and provide remedial measures if required. He also guided building space management and other relevant support to the university on a day-to-day basis, based on the recommendations of the Project Monitoring Committee. His role was classified under Expert-Advanced Vastu Services for the construction of five priority buildings at the universitys net zero carbon emission Campus. The appointment orders were issued by the then registrar Sanjay Bhatnagar. The former Vice-Chancellor of Nalanda University, Prof Sunaina Singh, who hails from Hyderabad, Telangana, said, On 450 acres of land allocated by the Bihar government, with 13 water lakes, greenery, and a zero carbon emission campus, the university has been constructed following the ancient model. Nalanda historically included knowledge systems such as Vastu Shastra. Hence, we approached Ramakrishna Raju, and his support is reflected in the Vastu principles incorporated in every corner of the university. While rebuilding Nalanda International University in Rajgir Bihar as its Vice-Chancellor, I took the help of Ramakrishna in Vastu corrections. He ably identified the Geopathic stress zones and he effectively neutralised them through his Vastu Shastra knowledge, she added. At a young age, Raju learned the fundamentals of Vastu from an expert named Avaru Subrahmanyam in Chirala, Prakasam district. Later, he studied updated Vastu techniques in places like Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Hyderabad. Raju has made many scientifically oriented corrections to the architecture of various government offices, private structures, places, and farms, earning accolades from numerous intellectuals. Speaking to TNIE, he said, It is enjoyable to have my role in such a great global project. The university campus architecture was approved in 2014, so I did not interfere with the architectural design, especially that was used in office rooms, classrooms, and hostel rooms. However, the staff quarters, deans quarters, V-Cs bungalow, library, yoga centre, and other structures were constructed based on my suggestions.

Asaduddin Owaisi: Don't Glorify Crime in NCERT Books

Hyderabad : AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday said children should not grow up glorifying criminal acts in reference to the lesson on the Babri Masjid demolition being tweaked in NCERT textbooks. In a post on 'X', the Hyderabad MP said India's children should know that the Supreme Court had called the demolition of Babri Masjid an egregious criminal act. The NCERT has decided to replace Babri Masjid with the words 'three-domed structure.' It has also decided to call the Ayodhya judgment an example of 'consensus.' India's children should know that the Supreme Court called the demolition of Babri Masjid an egregious criminal act, Owaisi said. The AIMIM chief said India's children should know that a functioning masjid was desecrated in 1949 and then demolished by a mob in 1992. They should not grow up glorifying criminal acts, he said. National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) director Dinesh Prasad Saklani had recently said the tweaks in textbooks are part of the annual revision and should not be a subject of hue and cry.

Lok Sabha Results Hint BJP had Become Weak, Says CPI

Bhongir : CPI state secretary and Kothagudem MLA Kunamneni Sambasiva Rao on Tuesday said that the results of the Lok Sabha elections had proved that the BJP had become weak in the country. Speaking at a meeting of the Dalita Hakulla Porata Samithi (DHPS) at Yadagirigutta, Sambasiva Rao said that the BJP only came to power at the Centre due to the support its National Democratic Alliance partners, and had failed to reach the magic figure on its own. He pointed out that the BJP candidate had faced defeat in the Faizabad constituency, which includes Ayodhya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi won Varasani with smaller margin than in 2019. He said that just like the BRS in Telangana and YSRC in Andhra Pradesh, which bit the dust in the recent elections, the BJP would face defeat in the country in the next elections. In Telangana Sambasiva Rao said, the BJP had benefited from the downfall of the BRS. The CPI leader said that the party would continue to fight on people's issues even though it had supported Congress in the Assembly elections. We will mount pressure on the Congress government for resolution of the issues that poor people face, Sambasiva Rao said.

The name of Hanumangarhi temple of Ayodhya comes among the biggest and prominent Hanuman temples, which is the birthplace of Lord Rama and his devotee Bajrangbali ji is seated here. But do you know where Bajrangbali and King Ram met for the first time? How revered would be that place, where Lord Ram and Hanuman ji would have met for the first time. The description of their meeting itself is quite interesting. It is said that when Lord Rama was searching for his wife Sita in the forest during the 14-year exile, he met Hanuman ji. Hanuman ji went to Ram ji in Brahmin guise at the behest of King Sugriva, to get his introduction. When Lord Ram told that he is Shri Ram, the son of Ayodhya King Dasharath, then Hanuman ji came in his real form and Shri Ram met Hanuman. But where did Lord Shri Ram and Hanuman meet and can you visit that place, know this in this article.

History of Yantrodharka Hanuman Temple According to beliefs, this temple was established by the great Hindu sage Vyas Raj. It is said that at this place Vyas Raj used to worship Hanuman ji daily and make a picture of Bajrangbali ji with coal. After the sage worshiped, the picture used to disappear automatically. Pleased with his devotion, Hanuman Ji appeared before Vyas Raj and instructed him to install the statue of Bajrangbali Ji inside a yantra. This statue of Lord Hanuman sitting in the middle of the mysterious yantra is considered to be the source of all energy. The specialty of the temple The special thing is that usually Hanuman Ji is seen flying or standing with Dronagiri, but in this temple he is sitting inside a yantra holding something in his hands. How to reach Yantrodharak Hanuman Temple This temple is also called Monkey Temple. Which is located on the top of Anjaneya Hill. The temple is built inside a cave.

Parents fascination with English-medium schools no less than suicide: NCERT chief

NEW DELHI: NCERT Director D P Saklani has lamented that parents remain fascinated by English-medium schools even though many don't have trained teachers, saying it is o less than suicide as government schools now provide quality education. In an interaction with PTI's editors at the agency's headquarters here, the chief of the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) said the practice of cramming content in English has led to knowledge loss among children and distanced them from their roots and culture. Parents are obsessed with English-medium schools, they prefer to send their children to such schools even if there are no teachers or they are not trained enough. This is not less than suicide and this why the new (national) education policy has stressed upon teaching in mother tongue, he said. 'Why teach about riots?': NCERT Director says no attempts to saffronise curriculum Why should teaching be matrabhasha adharit (based on mother tongue)? Because till then we will not understand our own mother, our roots, how will we understand anything? And multilingual approach is not like teaching in any language is being ended, the push is to learn multiple languages, Saklani added. The NCERT chief cited an initiative by the Union education minister to get primers (books) developed in two tribal languages of Odisha to teach students with help of pictures, stories and songs based on their local nature and culture to improve their speaking skill, learning outcome and cognitive development. We are now developing primers in 121 languages which will be ready this year and will help in connecting school-going children to their roots, he said. We start cramming up in English and that is where there is knowledge loss. Language should be an enabling factor, it should not disable. So far we have been disabled and now through multilingual education we are trying to enable ourselves, Saklani added. NCERT working as RSS arm, assaulting constitution: Jairam Ramesh The new National Education Policy (NEP) notified in 2020, had recommended that wherever possible, the medium of instruction until at least Grade 5 should be home language, mother tongue, local language or region language. The policy recommended that teaching in mother tongue should preferably be till Grade 8 and beyond. Thereafter, the home or local language shall continue to be taught as a language wherever possible. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last year said the use of the mother tongue in education has initiated a ew form of justice for students in India, and termed it as a very significant step towards social justice. The move also attracted criticism from various stakeholders and opposition parties. The education ministry has been maintaining that no language is being imposed on anyone. According to the new National Curriculum Framework (NCF), notified last year, students of classes 9 and 10 will now have to mandatorily study three languages, including two Indian native ones while students in classes 11 and 12 will have to study one Indian and one other language.

Preamble of Constitution is being violated: RJD leader Manoj Jha after NCERT revised class 12th political science textbook

Preamble of Constitution is being violated: RJD leader Manoj Jha after NCERT revised class 12th political science textbook After the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) revised class 12th political science textbook and referred to the Babri Masjid as a hree-dome structure, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Manoj Jha on Monday questioned the silence of alliance partners (INDIA bloc) over the issue and said the preamble of the Constitution is being violated. This comes after the NCERT left Babri Masjid out, referring to it only as a hree-dome structure in its revised Class 12th Political Science textbook. The revision pertains to Chapter 8, 'Recent Developments in Indian Politics'. The education policy should be guided by the Constitution...The preamble of the Constitution is being violated...Shouldn't the holocaust, partition and war be taught to the students?... What kind of people are taking decisions ?... The students should know everything that despite hatred, hate and violence India evolved...Why are the alliance partners silent ?... This is an issue related to the future of students, Manoj Jha told ANI. NCERT revised its Class XII political science textbook, saying the change reflects the Supreme Court's verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. The final judgement in the Supreme Court was declared on 9 November 2019. The Supreme Court ordered the land to be handed over to a trust to build the Hindu temple. New NCERT textbooks have hit the market with several deletions and changes. The revised Class 12 political science textbook, does not mention the Babri Masjid, but refers to it as a hree-domed structure and has condensed the Ayodhya section from four pages to two. Several critical details present in the previous version have been omitted, including the BJP's Rath Yatra from Somnath in Gujarat to Ayodhya, the involvement of kar sevaks, the communal violence following the Babri Masjid's demolition on December 6, 1992, the imposition of President's rule in BJP-governed states, and the BJP's expression of regret regarding the Ayodhya events The NCERT is revising the curriculum of the school textbooks in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

Air India passenger finds metal blade in meal, What airline clarifies?

A recent incident involving an Air India passenger discovering a metal blade in their meal has raised concerns about the airline's safety and service quality. Air India, owned by the Tata Group, confirmed the occurrence and attributed it to a malfunction in a vegetable processing machine used by their catering partner. Rajesh Dogra, Air India's Chief Customer Experience Officer, stated, Air India confirms that a foreign object was found in a guest's meal on one of our flights. Upon investigation, it was identified as part of the vegetable processing machine used by our catering partner. We have taken steps with our catering partner to prevent any recurrence, including more frequent checks of the processor, especially after chopping hard vegetables. This incident is one among several recent complaints highlighting the airline's service issues. On Saturday, a business-class passenger on an Air India flight from New Delhi to Newark reported being served uncooked food. Additionally, the airline was fined Rs 1 lakh for defective seats on its Delhi-Toronto return flights. In another significant event in May, the Aviation Ministry issued a show cause notice to Air India following a 20-hour delay on a Delhi-San Francisco flight. During this delay, passengers were reportedly kept inside the aircraft without air-conditioning in the intense heat of Delhi. Some passengers fainted, while others requested to disembark due to the uncomfortable conditions. These incidents have placed Air India under scrutiny as it works to address and improve its service standards.
