Congress Leader Tariq Anwar’s below the belt remark: “PM Modi does not have any lineage”

Even though the Model Code of conduct expects our leaders and politicians to maintain ideal behaviour and have civilized debates, this is followed rarely. There are countless examples of our leaders crossing the line when criticising the opposition party. In an outrageous statement, today Congress leaders questioned the lineage of Prime minister Narendra Modi for questioning the dynasty culture of Congress. Congress Leader Tariq Anwar went ahead and said that “Modi Ji does not have a successor in the family, which is why he is making such comments.” (Tariq Anwar Byte)
But it was not only him. Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Ghulam Nabi Azad too joined the chorus and said the same.
Well, you may remember, just a day ago Union Culture Minister and BJP MP Mahesh Sharma referred to Congress president Rahul Gandhi as “Pappu” and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as “Pappu ki Pappi” during a poll campaign. He drew widespread flak from the opposition party which termed his remarks condemnable.
Was that statement shameful? Yes. Was it below the belt. Definitely. Was this uncivilized remark uncalled for. Absolutely. But then all of this also applies to what Tariq Anwar and Ghulam Nabi Azad said too. You cannot preach something without practicing yourself. And for the leaders, the election season is heated up but below the belt remarks not only belittle your own party’s image, but also of our public discourse.

Today is the last day of her visit and she will be visiting Varanasi, the parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Thus, Varanasi is the stronghold of the BJP.

In this show today we will show you the boat ride campaign of Priyanka Gandhi so far and what response it received along with the analysis of these four constituencies the Congress General Secretary is trying to tap on.

The sad demise of Goa Chief Minister and Former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has left the entire country mourning. Parrikar who was battling pancreatic ailment since last few months took his last breath on Sunday evening. He was 63. Probably the only chief minister in the country having studied in IIT, Parrikar was a three-time Chief Minister of Goa from 2000 to 2005, 2012 to 2014 and 2017 to 2019. Despite being an RSS man, his political and administrative skills and love for the home state led him to become the tallest politician of India’s Christian majority state Goa.
Manohar Parrikar was among the rare breed of politicians to command respect irrespective of party or ideological lines. This is also one of the reasons why the alliance partners of the BJP’s minority government in Goa supported Parrikar and not the BJP. After the outcome of the Goa, Assembly election made it clear that BJP cannot form its own government, the Mharashtravadi Gomantak party, Goa Forward party and three independents joined the alliance on a condition that Parrikar be made the Chief Minister.
Now, after demise of Parrikar, BJP has lost a strong leadership that held the alliance partners together. There are the four names that are reportedly being considered by the BJP to be Parrikar’s successor:
