An extra zero
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is convulsing in Haryana. The Manohar Lal Khattar (pictured)-led BJP government in the state will face an Assembly election in little more than a year's time, and already there are murmurs of discontent. Haryana has a 90-member Assembly. BJP Lok Sabha member from Kurukshetra, Raj Kumar Saini, on Monday said his party had set for itself “mission 70-plus” for the next Haryana elections, but the sentiment among the people in the state was that the 'zero' was extra
in the figure.
Ride with Jae-in
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Noida in Uttar Pradesh on Monday afternoon was expected to cause traffic jams in the suburb of Delhi. Modi was scheduled to travel with the visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in to a Samsung plant in Noida. The district administration painted road signs, repaired the roads and generally spruced up the surroundings on the PM’s route. Fortunately for Noida residents, the PM and the South Korean president took the Metro for much of the way to the Samsung plant.
