Congress MP Rahul Gandhi targeted BJP and TMC in Shillong on Wednesday. He said, you know the history of TMC, you also know the violence in Bengal. You are aware of his tradition, he went to Goa and spent huge amount because his aim was to help BJP. In Meghalaya too, TMC’s aim is to bring BJP to power.
After this, Rahul Gandhi also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and businessman Gautam Adani. He said, I had asked the PM about his relationship with Adani. I also showed a picture in Parliament, in which Adani and PM Modi are sitting in Adani’s plane and PM Modi is relaxing as if it is his own home. PM Modi did not answer a single question regarding this.
Rahul Gandhi further said, he had asked me a question that why my name is Gandhi, why not Nehru? I gave a speech in the Parliament and then you see that when PM Modi gives his speech, it is on full television, but my speech is nowhere to be seen. He said, my speech is not visible in the media because the media is controlled by two to three big industrialists who have links with PM Modi. Now we cannot keep our point even in the media.

James Prinsep, because of whom the world knows of emperor Ashoka, lived in Varanasi for 10 years. In 1831, the British scholar drew a lithographic map of the old Kashi Vishwanath temple, and showed how Aurangzeb’s Gyanvapi mosque stood on it. That will now be a crucial piece of evidence.
