Son-in-law of MP
The elevation of Jagat Prakash Nadda (pictured) as the new Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief brought a lot of joy to Madhya Pradesh — especially to the city of Jabalpur. That’s because Nadda's wife Mallika, a professor of history at the Himachal Pradesh University, hails from that city. Many of the family's neighbours were seen distributing sweets. Nadda's mother-in-law Jayshree Banerjee has represented the town both in the MP Assembly as well as in Parliament. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath congratulated Nadda addressing him as the son-in-law of the state. “Many congratulations to the state’s son-in-law JP Nadda-ji for being elected the national president of BJP,” Nath tweeted.
The UN climate summits or the COP (Conference of the Parties) might be doing all it can to demonstrate to the world what can be achieved through a consistent policy of sustainable development and economic transformation, but at home some members are facing stiff criticism. Britain's Claire O'Neill, COP26 president, is one of them. "My daughter is an Extinction Rebellion protestor. She tells me you are just not doing enough. And all I can say is I am doing whatever I can," she described with a mother's angst during a round table held in Delhi recently.
