Keep your New India to yourself, return Old India to us, says Ghulam Nabi Azad
New Delhi: Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said in the Upper House Monday that the present government can keep its New India to itself and return the Old India to the people of the country. "In Old India, there was no enmity, no anger, hate, lynchings. In this New India, man has become man's enemy. Give us that India where Hindu Muslim Sikh Christian live peacefully and are ready to give their life for each other," he said. On Jharkhand lynching case, Azad said, "Jharkhand has become a factory of lynching and violence. Dalits and Muslims are killed there every week. PM, we are with you in the fight of 'Sabka saath sabka vikas' but it should be there for people to see it. We can't see it anywhere."
Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad Monday introduced the Aadhaar and Other Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal introduced the Special Economic Zones (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in Lok Sabha. Union Home Minister Amit Shah is likely to introduce the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2019 today, the sixth working day of the ongoing Monsoon session of Parliament.
On the other hand, Rajya Sabha MPs Monday raised the issue of growing drinking water crisis in different parts of the country and demanded immediate interventions such as inter-linking of rivers and rain water harvesting to recharge ground water table. Raising the issue through a Zero Hour mention, Satyanarayan Jatiya (BJP) said parts of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Karnataka have traditionally faced water crisis but now the problem has extended to fresh areas.
