Tripura Minister’s son misbehave with parliamentary team members

Published

Despite widespread criticism of a senior Tripura Minister’s son, who in an inebriated condition misbehaved with the members of visiting Parliamentary Standing Committee on Housing and Urban Affairs, the police are yet to take any action against the accused.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee was headed by Bharatiya Janata Party’s Lok Sabha member and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Jagdambika Pal.

A huge number of posts and videos went viral on the social media which features the Minister’s son in an inebriated condition misbehaving with the parliamentary team at a star category hotel here on Wednesday night.

Many local newspapers also reported the incident and alleged that the minister’s son often did nuisance on the outskirts of the city and beat innocent people under the influence of liquor.

Opposition Trinamool Congress Tripura state in-charge Rajib Banerjee and state President Subal Bhowmik alleged that Tripura Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma’s son got into a brawl in an inebriated state and misbehaved with parliamentarians.

The people of Tripura are ashamed of the Deputy Chief Minister’s son’s activities and it is absolutely appalling how he has behaved in front of the senior parliamentarians, Banerjee said in a statement.

Bhowmik said that the state Police is numb on this incident and it looks like as he is the son of the Deputy Chief Minister, the law of the state is not applicable for him.

“It is indeed a matter of extreme shame and disgrace for us. Such behaviour in a drunken state by the son of a senior minister is not only unexpected but absolutely unacceptable. We shall take up the matter at appropriate level,” said a BJP leader on condition of anonymity.

The parliamentary team left here on Friday.

Smriti Irani slams Gandhis, says chants of ‘Shri Ram’ must reach them

Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani on Friday slammed the Gandhi family while speaking at the BJP’s ‘Tridev Sammelan’ held in the city of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh.

She said the chants of ‘Shri Ram’ must reverberate with the Gandhi family in Delhi, Amethi and Kerala from the hill state.

This statement by Irani comes ahead of the BJP’s aim of ‘Mission repeat’ in the upcoming Himachal Pradesh Assembly election and galvanise the party workers.

Smriti Irani said the ‘Tridevs’ (Booth Adhyaksh, Booth Palak and Booth Agent) are the biggest strength of the party organisation, adding that it is their hard work which has helped the BJP emerge as the party with the largest party workers in the country and the world.

The Union Minister raised the slogan of ‘Shri Ram’ while praising the ‘Tridevs’, saying that today there are BJP governments in most of the states of the country only due to their contribution.

Smriti Irani said the BJP government will come back to power in Himachal Pradesh and the party workers at the ground level have contributed towards strengthening the party organisation.

Attacking the Nehru-Gandhi family, she added that the former delayed the construction of the Ram temple at Ayodhya for decades while being in power.

“It is the same Gandhi family which is working to disturb the peace in the country.”

Smriti Irani objected to Rahul Gandhi’s recent statement about other democracies, saying that the Gandhi family never had faith in India’s democracy and have always believed in dividing the country.

Referring to the military credentials of Himachal Pradesh, Irani said that Himachal Pradesh is the ‘City of Gods’ where the Indian Army received the Param Vir Chakra for the first time in the country.

The valiant people of Himachal Pradesh will show the door to those parties which disrespect the armed forces.

Parties such as the Congress which are involved in anti-national activities will be rejected by the people of Himachal Pradesh.

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, State BJP President Suresh Kashyap, BJP MLAs and a large number of party workers attended the Tridev Sammelan.

Hungry’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, who is on a day’s visit to Delhi, met Minister of External Affairs S. Jaishankar here.

After the meeting, Jaishankar said, “Valued the assessment of the Ukraine conflict and its knock-on effects in different domains. Also acknowledged Hungary’s steadfast commitment to an expanded Indian engagement with the European Union.”

Jaishankar said that he appreciated the Hungarian support for ‘Operation Ganga’ and discussed admission of Indian medical students in Hungary colleges. He also recalled Hungary’s early recognition of Covaxin and openness to travel arrangements. “Need to strengthen our longstanding cooperation in multilateral forums,” he added.

The two countries reviewed further cooperation in Science & technology, education and cultural relations.

The Hungarian FM said that the economic cooperation between India and Hungary has been hitting records and last year, a record was hit when it came to the volume of trade. But geographical distance is still considerable, he added.

Szijjarto said that two contracts will be signed-for development of trade and attracting investment. There is going to be an energy supply crisis in Europe and maybe globally, and those countries will be safe who can produce the most of the energy they consume, he said.

Hungary is the newest member of the International Solar Alliance and both countries are working to strengthen bilateral trade and relations.

Minister of State Meenakshi Lekhi and Szijjarto inaugurated a business forum. “Our bilateral trade has seen rapid growth in recent years. This event is a step in realising our full potential in trade & investment & expanding our ties,” Lekhi tweeted.
