'What is the deal between RJD and JDU....', Upendra Kushwaha questions CM Nitish

Patna: The tension between CM Nitish Kumar and Upendra Kushwaha in JDU is continuously increasing. Now Kushwaha has hit back at Chief Minister Nitish and said that the CM himself keeps changing alliances according to his convenience. If the Chief Minister says, he will leave the post of MLC today itself. Earlier, JDU national president Lalan Singh had said that Kushwaha is not the chairman of the parliamentary board of the party, he is only an MLC. On Tuesday, Upendra Kushwaha attacked Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Lalan Singh in a discussion with a channel. He said that even now when the release or circular is issued from Lalan Singh's office, Kushwaha's name is written in it as the Chairman of the Parliamentary Board. Now Lalan is saying that he is not the chairman of the parliamentary board. In such a situation, whether the paper is speaking right or the national president, is a disputed matter. Kushwaha said, I have already said that we are the president on paper but not in reality. Now Lalan Singh himself has certified that what I was saying is correct. The post was compared to rattle. Further, Upendra Kushwaha said that Chief Minister Nitish should tell what is the deal of JDU with RJD. There is apprehension about this in the minds of the public and party workers. Nitish Kumar may be a senior leader, but it has become a matter of discussion among the common people that according to their convenience, sometimes they go into this alliance and sometimes into another one. Heshould notice it. Instead of speaking on others, first, look inside yourself. 'Shivraj Singh is a fugitive CM...', Why did Kamal Nath say this?

Raveena Tandon reveals her conditions while doing scenes in movie; says, I didn't want to wear swimming costumes, and I didn't do kissing scenes

Raveena Tandon is one of the most versatile 90s actress in Bollywood. The actress never failed to deliver an outstanding performance. She is a perfect example of beauty and brain. Recently speaking to ANI, the actress revealed that rape scenes were on the list of movie elements that she found as unsettling. However, she claimed that because of her condition, she was considered cocky. Talking to ANI, Raveena revealed how she made sure not much of her body was revealed during any scene be it rape or dance, I used to be uncomfortable with a lot of things. For example, dance steps. If I was uncomfortable with something I would say listen, I am not comfortable with this step. I would not do the step. I didn't want to wear swimming costumes, and I didn't do kissing scenes. So I had my fundas. I was the only actress who had a couple of rape scenes with not even one tear in the dress. All my clothes used to be fully intracranial. She further added, Mera dress phatega nahi..tum karlo rape scene agar karna hai. So they used to call me arrogant, Raveena added. Darr had come to me first, though it was not vulgar, but earlier there were some scenes in Darr, I was not comfortable with. I never used to wear a swimming costume. I would say, 'no, I will not wear a swimming costume'. Even Prem Qaidi, the first film with which I think Lolo (Karisma Kapoor) got launched was actually offered to me first. But even in that, there was just one scene where the hero pulls down the zipper and the strap is showing, I was uncomfortable with that. Raveena Tandon recently discussed a variety of subjects, including body shaming and harmful gossip publications that can damage someone's career. The actress decided to take a break after getting married and concluded that the savagery of journalism in the 1990s was to blame for her acute discontent. On the work front, Raveena was last seen inKGF: Chapter 2. Next, she hasGhudchadialongside Sanjay Dutt and Arbaaz Khans Patna Shukla.

'Nitish Kumar should quit party': This leader's big statement

Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has asked JD(U) parliamentary board chairman Upendra Kushwaha to quit the party. In fact, the way Upendra Kushwaha has been showing anger against Nitish Kumar for the last few days, Nitish Kumar has advised him to leave the party. On Monday, Nitish Kumar said on the question of calling a party meeting in Patna on February 19-20 by Upendra Kushwaha in Banka duringSamadhan Yatra, If someone comes to our party and then leaves, then they have to leave the party. Nitish Kumar, who is looking very angry with Kushwaha these days, reminded how Kushwaha had left JDU twice and came back again. Nitish Kumar said, I moved Upendra Kushwaha forward in politics and made him an MLA, but even more so he left the party. When he returned to JDU, I made him an MP in the Rajya Sabha, but after that he left the party again. Now for the third time he has come. I don't know what has happened in the last 2 months. I have been asking him to talk but he is not talking.' Nitish Kumar attacked the BJP in gestures after Upendra Kushwaha took an aggressive stand. He said, When we won the elections in alliance with the BJP in 2019, we had demanded four cabinet seats, but we got only one.Only given If someone is speaking against me everyday, it makes it clear that he has already made up his mind with the other party (BJP).

Raveena Tandon opens up on being body-shamed; says, The woman would be panned, shamed, literally, her career ruined in the magazines with nasty articles being put out about her

Actress Raveena Tandon talked about experiencing fat shaming when she first entered the film profession. She also addressed individuals who thought she had exaggerated the situation's reality. Even though Raveena occasionally talked about how difficult it was for her to get work because of the way she looked, most people didn't think much of it. News agency ANI quoted her as saying, I was plump actually. Started at 16 and a half years, and I was full of baby fat yaar... which still hasn't gone. Though I don't care now, I am being like that, I am like that, too bad! Recollecting the past memories, she added, I remember some of these titles. And not only me, but some other heroines are also called that. Besides that, instead of supporting women, what they did was...firstly all these women editors would fall in love with the heroes. And what the heroes said were the last words. If he wanted to pan a woman, the woman would be panned, shamed, literally, her career ruined in the magazines with nasty articles being put out about her. There were so many untrue articles put out because some hero went and said, Acha, uske bare me aab aisa likh do... and it would be the last word. And if there would be an apology, that would be on the last line of some other issues of the magazine, it would be written 'the story carried earlier ultimately proved not to be true'. And who will read that then? At that time the screaming headlines already made the news, right? Raveena Tandon discussed a variety of subjects, including body shaming and harmful gossip publications that can damage someone's career. When asked about the gossip publications from bygone ages, Raveena stated quite clearly, 90s gossip magazines were the worst. And some of those women, now I see, roaming around today carrying the women's lib badge over their heads and hearts, who were the worst enemies of women, who body-shamed women, slut shamed women and would do everything possible to bring another woman down. Today they roam around being as biggest feminists, I wonder when did that happen? After marrying, Raveena Tandon came to the conclusion that the viciousness of journalism in the 1990s was to blame for her extreme dissatisfaction, and she chose to take a break. On the work front, Raveena was last seen inKGF: Chapter 2. Next, she hasGhudchadialongside Sanjay Dutt and Arbaaz Khans Patna Shukla.

A Miraculous stone with Jai Shri Ram written on it floated in the Dhobi Ghat, Became the centre of People attraction

A shocking incident comes to light from Patnas Bihar where an 8-year-old boy brought a stone in his home. He is a resident of Bhagalpur, Bihar. The boy found a stone floating and Shri Ram was written on it. The boy has been identified as Brigadier Paswan. He is the son of Khanjarpur resident Vijay Kumar Paswan. He was going to Diyara to bring cow fodder. The Boy saw a stone floating near Dhobi Ghat. He became attracted to the student. He picked up the stone, it was very light, Shri Ram was written on it. After this Brigadier Paswan reached his home with the miraculous stone, where hundreds of people gathered to Brigadier's house to see the miraculous stone and started discussing the stone. Scientists said that it is a rough stone with a lot of pores like a sponge. Air is also filled in it, just like a sponge and for this reason, its density is less than that of water, due to which it floats on water. However, people feels that it was purely a stone and as it has written Shri Ram writtenon it has become the center of people's faith. People are shocked to see the stone. There has been an influx of people visiting this stone. Some are saluting him, some are looking at it with astonished eyes, while some say that this is a miracle of Lord Shri Ram. Seeing Shriram written on the stone, people also started worshiping the stone. People are also considering it as a blessing of Lord Shriram. Vijay Kumar Paswan said his son brought the stone home, after that when we put that stone in the water, it started floating, the matter did not end here, When they saw it carefully Lord Ram name was written on it.

Experts back KS Bharat to be India's preferred wicket-keeping option for Tests vs Aus

Cricket The absence of Pant means India must now choose between two uncapped wicketkeeper-batters -- KS Bharat and Ishan Kishan -- for the upcoming Test series against Australia, starting from February 9 in Nagpur. Ians With Rishabh Pant ruled out of cricketing action for an indefinite period, India is without the belligerent left-handed batter who would rescue the side from troubling situations through his counterattacking knocks and have an effective yet cheerful presence while on keeping duties. The absence of Pant means India must now choose between two uncapped wicketkeeper-batters -- KS Bharat and Ishan Kishan -- for the upcoming Test series against Australia, starting from February 9 in Nagpur. Bharat has been an understudy to Saha and then Pant in the Test team since 2019 apart from being a regular in India A side. Kishan kept wickets for the Indian team in this year's white-ball games against New Zealand and Sri Lanka (barring ODIs). He also kept wickets for India A in two unofficial four-day matches on the tour of South Africa in 2021. MSK Prasad, former chairman of the senior men's selection committee, opined Bharat must be given a chance as he has been groomed for the Test spot, especially when keeping wickets in home conditions in mind.You need to have a keeper who can keep wickets well and then who can contribute with the bat in the tried and tested Indian conditions time and again, especially when you have bowlers like Ashwin, Jadeja, Axar. So, I think it's a fair call to start off with KS Bharat and give him some opportunities as for the last two-three years, he's been waiting in the wings for this spot, he said to IANS. Bharat had given an excellent account of his wicket-keeping skills during the Kanpur Test against New Zealand in 2021. Coming in as a substitute keeper due to Wriddhiman Saha having a stiff neck, Bharat took a good low catch to dismiss a well-set Will Young off Ravichandran Ashwin and took a lovely catch of Ross Taylor off Axar Patel. He showed good alertness and athleticism to stump Tom Latham short of his crease off Axar's bowling. Prasad, who played six Tests and 19 ODIs for India, remembers the time when he saw Bharat as an 11-year-old kid while playing for Andhra. As a wicketkeeper, he always had a very good and soft pair of hands, very similar to Wriddhiman Saha. Whenever we used to play Ranji Trophy matches in Visakhapatnam, I used to see this small kid keeping wickets. I ensured he would keep wickets in my nets and since then, I have been seeing him. But it is Bharat's development as a batter which makes Prasad believe he can be a good fit in the Test team. In 86 first-class matches, Bharat has made 4707 runs, averaging 37.95 and holds the distinction of being the first player to score a triple century in the Ranji Trophy as a wicketkeeper, apart from taking 296 catches and effecting 35 stumpings.He's been a very good keeper and subsequently, developed himself as a very good batsman and even got a triple hundred in domestic cricket (308 against Goa in 2015). He has scored quite a few centuries for India A against Australia A, South Africa A. This is exactly what he was groomed for, especially in the Test format. He fits in very well and with opportunities coming his way, it is up to him how he grabs it with both hands. Former India wicketkeeper-batter Deep Dasgupta thinks Bharat should be the preferred keeper-batter for Tests against Australia while expressing confidence in the abilities of Kishan. To start off with Bharat, as he's been an understudy for a while now. I think Bharat is a good enough batter and Ishan is also a good enough keeper.\I don't think that is what I am thinking of (better keeper v better batter) while deciding because I have confidence in both these guys. One has maybe a little bit of edge in a certain facet. But I don't think that's the deal-breaker for me.\What I feel is important is the plans which have been in place for a good six months, which is KS Bharat in red-ball cricket, who is your second in line after Rishabh, who is not available. If that's the plan, you got to stick with the plan because what's the point of the plan if you don't stick with it, he said to IANS. Prasad feels Kishan, who has amassed 2985 runs in 48 first-class matches and averages 38.76 apart from 99 catches and 11 stumpings, will have to wait for his chance in Tests. Even Ishan has got a good pair of hands and is a very aggressive batter too. But I understand that as far as white-ball cricket is concerned. In domestic red-ball cricket, he even hit 280 or 300 also (273 against Delhi in 2016).\He has to keep waiting for his opportunity, just like how KS Bharat has waited for his opportunities when he's been a deputy to Saha or Pant. There's no doubt that Ishan is a good wicketkeeper-batsman, but he has to wait for his opportunities. Amidst the Bharat-Ishan toss-up, the absence of Pant is unquestionably a big setback to India's plans of continuing its domination in home conditions. Since 2020, Pant has scored the most runs for India in Tests, amassing 1517 runs in 38 innings, averaging 43.3, which swells to 62.4 when facing Australia.Very unfortunate (his absence). We know how important Rishabh Pant is, especially against the Australians, both at home and in Australia. We saw his exploits and heroics; it's a big loss for us from team and country point of view and also, individually from Rishabh's point of view. It's a huge loss, as we know Australians get a little worried about what Rishabh can do in the middle, added Prasad.He's one of the biggest match-winners, at least in this format across the world. I can't think of too many guys who can do what he does in terms of winning games. So, undoubtedly, that's a huge blow, concluded Dasgupta.

Coming in as a substitute keeper due to Wriddhiman Saha having a stiff neck, Bharat took a good low catch to dismiss a well-set Will Young off Ravichandran Ashwin and took a lovely catch of Ross Taylor off Axar Patel. He showed good alertness and athleticism to stump Tom Latham short of his crease off Axar's bowling. Prasad, who played six Tests and 19 ODIs for India, remembers the time when he saw Bharat as an 11-year-old kid while playing for Andhra. As a wicketkeeper, he always had a very good and soft pair of hands, very similar to Wriddhiman Saha. Whenever we used to play Ranji Trophy matches in Visakhapatnam, I used to see this small kid keeping wickets. I ensured he would keep wickets in my nets and since then, I have been seeing him. But it is Bharat's development as a batter which makes Prasad believe he can be a good fit in the Test team. In 86 first-class matches, Bharat has made 4707 runs, averaging 37.95 and holds the distinction of being the first player to score a triple century in the Ranji Trophy as a wicketkeeper, apart from taking 296 catches and effecting 35 stumpings. He's been a very good keeper and subsequently, developed himself as a very good batsman and even got a triple hundred in domestic cricket (308 against Goa in 2015). He has scored quite a few centuries for India A against Australia A, South Africa A. This is exactly what he was groomed for, especially in the Test format. He fits in very well and with opportunities coming his way, it is up to him how he grabs it with both hands. Former India wicketkeeper-batter Deep Dasgupta thinks Bharat should be the preferred keeper-batter for Tests against Australia while expressing confidence in the abilities of Kishan. To start off with Bharat, as he's been an understudy for a while now. I think Bharat is a good enough batter and Ishan is also a good enough keeper. I don't think that is what I am thinking of (better keeper v better batter) while deciding because I have confidence in both these guys. One has maybe a little bit of edge in a certain facet. But I don't think that's the deal-breaker for me. What I feel is important is the plans which have been in place for a good six months, which is KS Bharat in red-ball cricket, who is your second in line after Rishabh, who is not available. If that's the plan, you got to stick with the plan because what's the point of the plan if you don't stick with it, he said to IANS. Prasad feels Kishan, who has amassed 2985 runs in 48 first-class matches and averages 38.76 apart from 99 catches and 11 stumpings, will have to wait for his chance in Tests. Even Ishan has got a good pair of hands and is a very aggressive batter too. But I understand that as far as white-ball cricket is concerned. In domestic red-ball cricket, he even hit 280 or 300 also (273 against Delhi in 2016). He has to keep waiting for his opportunity, just like how KS Bharat has waited for his opportunities when he's been a deputy to Saha or Pant. There's no doubt that Ishan is a good wicketkeeper-batsman, but he has to wait for his opportunities. Amidst the Bharat-Ishan toss-up, the absence of Pant is unquestionably a big setback to India's plans of continuing its domination in home conditions. Since 2020, Pant has scored the most runs for India in Tests, amassing 1517 runs in 38 innings, averaging 43.3, which swells to 62.4 when facing Australia. Very unfortunate (his absence). We know how important Rishabh Pant is, especially against the Australians, both at home and in Australia. We saw his exploits and heroics; it's a big loss for us from team and country point of view and also, individually from Rishabh's point of view. It's a huge loss, as we know Australians get a little worried about what Rishabh can do in the middle, added Prasad. Amidst the Bharat-Ishan toss-up, the absence of Pant is unquestionably a big setback to India's plans of continuing its domination in home conditions. Since 2020, Pant has scored the most runs for India in Tests, amassing 1517 runs in 38 innings, averaging 43.3, which swells to 62.4 when facing Australia.

Political strategist-turned-politician Prashant Kishor had attacked Nitish Kumar over his Samadhan Yatra. He had said it was an attempt to fool people and that leading meetings of favorite ministers and bureaucrats at events would not solve people's problems. This Samadhan Yatra is his (CM's) 14th visit, but nothing has changed in the state. This journey is only an attempt to fool people.

While issuing a statement on his Twitter handle, Nikhil Anand said that if an officer is honest, then is mother and sister's abuse free for him. Wear a cloak of honesty and do anything to anyone. The Bihar government should definitely take action against such an officer. BJP spokesperson also took a dig at those persons who are supporting KK Pathak. He has said that the people supporting KK Pathak should take him to their home and make KK Pathak use the same language in front of his wife, children, and family. Nikhil Anand has claimed that there are many such instances in Bihar when big officials wear honesty robes and decorate their houses and shops outside the country. No one goes with such people. After retirement, he does not find 2 people to remember. At the last moment, not even 4 people are found for their money. The BJP spokesperson alleged that KK Pathak is a person of double character. Show something else in the house and something else outside. Kk Pathak is suffering from regional and ethnic misfortunes and abusing the people of Bihar. He has not done anything for Bihar yet. More dutiful and honest officers are full than them. Just expressing regret won't work. He should publicly apologise with folded hands. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar should take strict action against IAS officer KK Pathak for abusing Biharis.
