BJP MP Saumitra Khan to send divorce notice to wife Sujata Khan after she joins TMC


Addressing the press, Saumitra Khan said that his wife “made a mistake” and blamed TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee for “breaking my family”.

BJP MP Saumitra Khan on Monday announced that she will send a divorce notice to her wife Sujata Mondal Khan moments after she joined TMC in Kolkata.

Addressing the press, the Bishnupur lawmaker said that his wife “made a mistake” and blamed TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee for “breaking my family”.

“You were respected as a BJP MP’s wife. TMC can break families…You [Sujata Mondal Khan] have got me votes and are a part of my victory. but I now release her from my name and surname. Those who broke our house…we will not forgive them,” Khan said as quoted by India Today.

“I request my wife Sujata to stay well and fight out. You have made a mistake, Sujata. I want to tell Abhishek Banerjee, Sujata was my only weakness and now I will sacrifice everything for my party [BJP].

“I will be sending a divorce notice. I will fight TMC. I want to tell TMC that you should be ashamed for breaking my family. There have been so many fights but [I] did not think this will happen,” he added.

Sujata joined Mamata Banerjee-led party at the presence of Kunal Ghosh and veteran Saugata Roy. She also wished for her TMC-turncoat husband to follow suit soon.

“I hope good sense prevails in him. Let’s hope for the best,” said Sujata about Saumitra, who had served as TMC’s youth wing secretary before changing his loyalty.

Sujata took a dig at BJP and said only opportunists had a place there now. “Now there are only opportunist and tainted people on the top. There was no respect in the BJP for me,” she said.

“I don’t understand what kind of soap is it that is used to purifying the tainted leaders. I had fought for BJP and my husband [Saumitra Khan]…we got them [BJP and Saumitra Khan] a victory in the Lok Sabha polls. I think they have only been opportunists.”

However, Bengali portal The Wall repored that there had been a rift in the relationship between Saumitra and Sujata after the latter demanded to be made the president of BJP’s Mahila Morcha.

As Home Minister Amit Shah boasted about the intolerance of the saffron party to nepotism, TMC took the advantage with a hope to untether a fierce campaign against Saumitra, the former president of TMC’s youth wing.

Sujata had proved to be instrumental in BJP’s success in the 2019 Parliamentary polls in Bankura after Saumitra was stopped by the court from entering the district.

Sujata had shouldered the responsibility of BJP’s campaign in Bankura. It was riding on her effortless campaigning that hindutva brigade gained massive inroads on the land of red soil.

How much will Sujata’s induction help West Bengal’s governning party in the ballots remains to be seen. But it’ll certainly act as a moral booster to the TMC cadres who have been demotivated recently with massive defections led by Suvendu Adhikari.




Boris Johnson to chair crisis meeting as countries blocked flights to Britain over coronavirus strain


The World Health Organization also called for stronger containment measures across Europe, which has passed 500,000 deaths from Covid-19.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was to chair a crisis meeting Monday as a growing number of countries from France to Argentina blocked flights to Britain over a new highly infectious coronavirus strain the UK said was “out of control”.

The World Health Organization also called for stronger containment measures across Europe, which has passed 500,000 deaths from Covid-19.

But there was positive news across the Atlantic where US lawmakers reached a deal for a nearly $900 billion Covid-19 financial package to help struggling Americans.

In London, Johnson called the COBR emergencies committee meeting to “discuss the situation regarding international travel, in particular the steady flow of freight into and out of the UK”, a spokesman said.

More than a dozen European nations have already banned flights and travellers from Britain, with more expected to take action.

Crucial transit country France moved to block people and goods crossing the Channel, while the Netherlands said passengers arriving by ferry would be denied entry.

The ban on all but unaccompanied freight crossing to France comes as companies scramble to shift merchandise with days to go until Britain finally quits European Union trade structures in the wake of Brexit.

Late Sunday, Britain’s critical south coast port at Dover said it was closing to all accompanied freight and passengers due to the French border restrictions “until further notice”.

Alarm bells were ringing across Europe as the new, even more infectious strain of the virus appeared to be raging in parts of Britain.

A WHO spokeswoman told AFP that “across Europe, where transmission is intense and widespread, countries need to redouble their control and prevention approaches.”

A German government source said restrictions on air travel from Britain could be adopted by the entire 27-member EU and that countries were also discussing a joint response over sea, road and rail links.

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and EU chiefs Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel held a conference call on Sunday about the matter, Macron’s office said.

Later Sunday, bans on flights from Britain were imposed in the Americas, including by Canada, Chile and Argentina.

US officials, however, signalled they were holding off on the move for now, while Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he was confident existing 14-day quarantine rules for arrivals were sufficient to handle the threat.

Despite growing concerns about the new strain, EU experts believe it will not impact the effectiveness of existing vaccines, Germany’s health minister Jens Spahn said.

The assessment was shared by Britain’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty.

UK U-turn

Johnson said the infectiousness of the new strain had forced him into locking down much of England over the Christmas period.

“Unfortunately the new strain was out of control. We have got to get it under control,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News.

Scientists first discovered the new variant — which they believe is 70 percent more transmissible — in a patient in September. Public Health England notified the government on Friday when modelling revealed its full seriousness.

The novel coronavirus has killed more than 1.68 million people since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP.

And with the onset of colder winter weather in the northern hemisphere — when respiratory diseases flourish — countries are bracing for new waves of Covid-19 with tighter restrictions, despite the economic damage such lockdowns wrought earlier this year.

The Netherlands is under a five-week lockdown until mid-January with schools and all non-essential shops closed.

Italy also announced a new regime of restrictions until January 6 that included limits on people leaving their homes more than once a day, closing non-essential shops, bars and restaurants and curbs on regional travel.

Vaccination roll-out

In the US, the $900 billion package agreed Sunday is expected to include aid for vaccine distribution and logistics, extra jobless benefits of $300 per week, and a new round of $600 stimulus checks.

Congress is expected to soon approve the measure as the country copes with the world’s highest death toll from the virus.

Around the world, the rapid roll-out of vaccinations is now seen as the only effective way to end the crisis.

Europe is expected to start a massive vaccination campaign after Christmas, following the United States and Britain which have begun giving jabs with an approved Pfizer-BioNTech shot, one of several leading candidates.

A US expert panel recommended Sunday that those aged 75 and older should be the next vaccinated against the virus, along with 30 million “frontline essential workers,” including teachers, grocery store employees and police.

Initial doses have focused on frontline health-care workers and the elderly in nursing homes.

Russia and China have also started giving out jabs with their own domestically produced vaccines.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted and said, "Vora ji was a true Congressman and a wonderful person. We will miss them a lot. My condolences to his family and friends.


Bhupesh Baghel said, "Babuji Shri Motilal Vora ji's departure is like leaving a guardian not only for Chhattisgarh but for the entire Congress family."

He said, "By starting politics from the ground level, he created a distinct identity at the national level and remained a dedicated Congressman for a lifetime. His place will never be filled. ''


Priyanka Gandhi said, "Every leader of Congress party, every worker is feeling personally sad because of Motilal Vora ji's death. Vora ji was a symbol of loyalty, dedication and patience to the Congress ideology. ''

He said, "Even at the age of 92, he was present in every meeting, he openly expressed his views on every decision. Today, saying goodbye to him with a sorrowful heart, it is felt that a large elderly member of the family has gone away. We will all miss him a lot. ''




Health Ministry calls meeting of its joint monitoring group after spread of mutant coronavirus in UK


Britain has warned this new strain of coronavirus was “out of control”, and imposed a stringent new stay-at-home lockdown from Sunday.

Amid the spread of mutant coronavirus in the United Kingdom, the Health Ministry has called a meeting today of its joint monitoring group on COVID-19 to discuss the crisis.

Amid the reports of the spread of the virus, many European countries have banned flights to and from Britain.

Britain has warned this new strain of coronavirus was “out of control”, and imposed a stringent new stay-at-home lockdown from Sunday.

The joint monitoring group chaired by the Director General of Health Services (DGHS) will meet today around 10 am to discuss the mutated variant of coronavirus reported from the UK, government sources said, reported NDTV.

The World Health Organisation’s India representative Roderico H Ofrin, who is also a member of the monitoring group, is likely to participate in the meeting, it added.

Yesterday, Saudi Arabia halted international flights and suspended entry through its land and sea ports for at least a week, after a new fast-spreading strain of coronavirus appeared in Britain.

The kingdom is “temporarily suspending all international flights — except in exceptional cases — for a period of one week, which can be extended by another week,” the official Saudi Press Agency said.

“Entry to the kingdom through land and sea ports will also be suspended for a week, which can be extended by another week,” SPA added, citing the interior ministry.

As per the official data, India recorded 24,337 new COVID-19 cases with 25,709 recoveries, and 333 deaths in the last 24 hours.

Farmers sit on hunger strike; centre asks protesters to choose date for talks


The relay hinger strike is the third major national event by the farmers after the nationwide strike earlier this month which was supported by opposition parties and trade unions, and last week’s hunger strike by farmer leaders.

With the farmer unions intensifying the protests for their demand for the repeal of the farm laws,  the farmers on Monday have started an indefinite relay hunger strike around the Delhi borders.

After five rounds of failed negotiations the central government on Sunday asked the protesting farmers to choose a date for a new round of talks.

The relay hinger strike is the third major national event by the farmers after the nationwide strike earlier this month which was supported by opposition parties and trade unions, and last week’s hunger strike by farmer leaders.

In a letter to 40 farm leaders, Vivek Aggarwal, joint secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare said that the government was making all the efforts with ‘an open heart’ to find an appropriate solution to resolve the concerns raised by the farmers.

This letter has come in response to the letter in which the farmers had informed the government of the farm unions’ decision to reject the Centre’s proposal of concessions regarding changes in the farm laws.

On Sunday, the protesting farmers called to intensify the agitation and Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav, one of the leaders in the protest told reporters, “We will hold an indefinite relay hunger strike here, in which 11 people will take it in turns to fast for 24 hours each.”

The agitating farmers also hit out at the government and said that they will ‘bang thalis during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s radio broadcast Mann ki Baat.’ The farmers appealed to the people to skip a meal on Kisan Diwas on Wednesday ‘to honour the men and women who put food on your table for three meals a day.’

Punjab CM Capt. Amarinder Singh and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal slammed the government and said that it was trying to intimidate Arhityas (commission agents)supporting the farmers’ protests

Previous five rounds of talks between the government and the unions have failed to break the deadlock with the farmers. The farmers are insisting on repeal of the three laws and camping at various border points of Delhi for over three weeks now.




‘Forum has done great work to promote ideas of Lord Buddha’: PM Modi at Indo-Japan SAMVAD Conference


‘Societies that are open-minded, democratic and transparent are better suited to innovate. Therefore, now is the time, more than ever before, to change the paradigm on what we see as growth,’ PM said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed the Sixth Indo-Japan SAMVAD Conference virtually.

Recalling the beginning of conference five years ago, PM said, “Five years ago, we began this series of conferences with former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Since then, SAMVAD has travelled from New Delhi to Tokyo, from Yangon to Ulaanbaatar. In this journey, it has remained true to its fundamental objectives: to encourage dialogue and debate; to highlight our shared values of democracy, humanism, Ahimsa, freedom and tolerance; and, to carry forward our ancient tradition of spiritual and scholarly exchanges. I would like to thank the Government of Japan for their constant support to SAMVAD.”


“This forum has done great work to ensure promote the ideas and ideals of Lord Buddha, especially among the youth. Historically, the light of Buddha’s message spread out from India to many parts of the world. However, this light did not remain static. In each new place it reached, Buddhist thought continued to evolve further over the Centuries. Because of this, great treasures of Buddhist literature and philosophy can be found in many different monasteries today, across many different countries and languages,” PM Modi said.

“This body of writing is a treasure of humankind as a whole. Today, I would like to propose the creation of a library of all such traditional Buddhist literature and scriptures. We will be happy to create such a facility in India and will provide appropriate resources for it. The library will collect digital copies of all such Buddhist literature from different countries. It will aim to translate them, and make them freely available for all monks and scholars of Buddhism. The library will not only be a depository of literature,” he added.

“It will also be a platform for research and dialogue – a true ‘SAMVAD’ between human beings, between societies, and between man and nature. Its research mandate will also include examining how Buddha’s message can guide our modern world against contemporary challenges. Challenges like poverty, racism, extremism, gender discrimination, climate change and many others,” PM added.

“About three weeks ago, I was at Sarnath. Sarnath is where Lord Buddha gave his first sermon after attaining enlightenment. This Jyoti Punj emerged from Sarnath spread across the world embracing the values of Compassion, Nobility and above all, Manav Kalyan the good of entire humanity. And gently, peacefully, it changed the course of world history. It was in Sarnath that Lord Buddha spoke in detail about his ideal of Dhamma. Dhamma for him was more than prayer and rituals. At the Centre of Dhamma are humans, and their relation with fellow humans. Thus, it is most important to be a positive force in the lives of others. SAMVAD should be one that will spread this spirit of positivity, unity and compassion across our planet. That too at a time when we need it the most,” he added.

“This is the first SAMVAD of a new decade. It is happening at a critical moment of human history. Our actions today will shape the discourse in the coming times. This decade and beyond will belong to those societies that place a premium on learning and innovating together. It will be about nurturing bright young minds who will add value to the humanity in the times to come. Learning should be such that furthers innovation. After all, innovation is the corner-stone to human empowerment,” he said.

“Societies that are open-minded, democratic and transparent are better suited to innovate. Therefore, now is the time, more than ever before, to change the paradigm on what we see as growth. Discussions on global growth cannot happen only between a few. The table must be bigger. The agenda must be broader. Growth patterns must follow a human-centric approach. And, be in harmony with our surroundings,” PM added.

“Hostility will never achieve peace. In the past, humanity took the path of confrontation instead of collaboration. From Imperialism to the world wars. From the arms race to the space race. We had dialogues but they were aimed at pulling others down. Now, let us rise together. Lord Budha’s teachings command the strength to turn the discourse from enmity to empowerment. His teachings make us large-hearted. They tell us: learn from the past and work towards a better future. This is the best service we can do for our future generations,” he said.

“The essence of Samwad remains togetherness. Let SAMVAD bring out the best in us, together. This is the time to draw upon our ancient values and prepare for the times to come. We must keep humanism at the core of our policies. We must make harmonious co-existence with nature as the central pillar of our existence. SAMVAD, a dialogue with ourselves, with fellow human beings, and with nature can light our way on this path. I compliment the organizers for organizing this important event and wish them all success in their deliberations,” PM said.




Saudi Arabia halts international flights, suspends entry through land, sea ports amid fast-spreading strain of Covid


The suspension does not apply to international aircraft currently in the kingdom, which will be allowed to leave, SPA said.

Saudi Arabia on Sunday halted international flights and suspended entry through its land and sea ports for at least a week, after a new fast-spreading strain of coronavirus appeared in Britain.

The kingdom is “temporarily suspending all international flights — except in exceptional cases — for a period of one week, which can be extended by another week,” the official Saudi Press Agency said.

“Entry to the kingdom through land and sea ports will also be suspended for a week, which can be extended by another week,” SPA added, citing the interior ministry.

The suspension does not apply to international aircraft currently in the kingdom, which will be allowed to leave, SPA said.

The development comes after several European countries banned travel from Britain on Sunday as the UK government warned that a highly infectious new strain of the virus was “out of control”.

SPA said passengers who arrived in Saudi Arabia from Europe — or any country where the new strain was detected — starting December 8 will be required to self isolate for two weeks, and undergo testing.

Neighbouring Kuwait also announced a ban on Sunday on passenger flights from Britain over the new strain of the virus.

Alarm bells are ringing across Europe — which last week became the first region in the world to pass 500,000 deaths from Covid-19 — after it appeared that a more infectious strain of the virus was raging in parts of Britain.

Last week, Saudi Arabia kicked off a three-phase Covid-19 vaccination programme, after the first shipments of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine arrived in the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia has so far recorded more than 361,000 novel coronavirus cases, including more than 6,000 deaths – the highest among the Gulf Arab states. But the kingdom has also reported a high recovery rate.




‘Will consider CAA as soon as Covid vaccination starts’: Amit Shah


‘The rules of the CAA are yet to be framed as such a massive process could not be carried out because of the corona. As soon as (COVID) vaccination starts and corona cycle breaks, we will consider it,’ he said.

Slamming West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over the recent attack on BJP chief JP Nadda’s convoy, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday asserted the centre has the right to summon state IPS officers responsible for providing him security for central deputation, and asked the TMC to go through the rules before pointing fingers at the union government.

He also said that rules for the Citizenship (Amendment) Act are yet to be framed because of the pandemic situation and the matter will be considered once the COVID-19 vaccination starts and the corona chain breaks.

Addressing a press conference, Mr Shah claimed that Ms Banerjee and the Trinamool Congress raked up the “outsider-insider” issue to divert public attention from the failures of the state government and said that a “son of the soil” would lead the state if the BJP is voted to power.

“The rules of the CAA are yet to be framed as such a massive process could not be carried out because of the corona. As soon as (COVID) vaccination starts and corona cycle breaks, we will consider it,” he said.

Asked about the summoning of IPS officers of West Bengal cadre by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr Shah said that the Centre has sent the letter to state government as per the Constitution and the law. “It is according to the federal structure (of the country). They (TMC government) should first go through the rules and then talk to the centre and the public.”

The centre had on Thursday shot off a fresh letter to the West Bengal government to immediately relieve its three IPS officers for central deputation, following which the Chief Minister branded the move as “unconstitutional and unacceptable”.

On the attack on JP Nadda’s convoy by alleged TMC activists during his visit to Diamond Harbour on December 10, Mr Shah alleged that political violence and corruption are at peak in the state.

“The BJP condemns it, and I too condemn it. The BJP believes that in a democracy, everyone should have the right to voice their views. And it is the responsibility of the ruling party to ensure that all parties can have their voice heard.

“The attack on the BJP chief is not only an attack on him. It is an attack on democracy in West Bengal and the Trinamool Congress is completely responsible for this,” Mr Shah said.

It was more alarming that after the attack, TMC leaders’ statements, in a way, supported it, the senior BJP leader claimed.

They must not be under the impression that the BJP will be cowed down by such attacks, he said adding that the party will continue to work to defeat the TMC.

On the “insider-outsider” debate, Mr Shah said, “I think Mamata di has forgotten a few things. Did she call Indira Gandhi, Pranab Mukherjee, Narasimha Rao outsiders when they used to come to West Bengal, and she was with the Congress? Does she want a country where people from one state will not visit another?”

“Someone from Bengal, a bhumiputra (son of the soil), will defeat her and become the next CM of the state.” He said.

Mr Shah, however, rejected any link between his ”bhumiputra” comment and Suvendu Adhikari, a TMC heavyweight who joined the party on Saturday.

“The decision in this regard is taken by the parliamentary board. If we take any such decision, before election we will let you know,” he said.

The assembly polls are due in the state in April-May next year.

Mr Shah also attacked the Mamata Banerjee government over infiltration from Bangladesh.

“The TMC can never stop infiltration as it believes in the politics of appeasement. Only the BJP can stop it,” he said.

The Union home minister claimed that the state government was opposing a CAG audit ordered by the Calcutta High Court into the distribution of relief materials after Cyclone Amphan because there was theft of ration after the disaster.

He said that the TMC is lending support to the ongoing farmers’ protest but it is not ready to provide them with ₹ 6,000 available from the PM-KISAN Samman Nidhi scheme.

“Twenty-three lakh farmers of Bengal have requested online for PM-KISAN Samman Nidhi. Mamata di prevents them from getting it by not giving them actual certification. She is not even sending a list of farmers to the Centre,” Mr Shah said.

The senior BJP leader also slammed the TMC for the low economic growth in the state.

“Bengal had a chunk of one-third of India’s entire GDP when the country got independence. Today, it has reduced to minimalistic levels after three decades of Communist rule and one decade of TMC rule,” he said.

“Bengal’s per-person income was nearly double of Maharashtra’s in 1960, but now it is not even half of India’s business capital. Who’s responsible for this?” Mr Shah said.




Amit Shah reaches Kolkata for two-day visit, TMC rebels likely to joins his mega rally today


‘Reached Kolkata! I bow to this revered land of greats like Gurudev Tagore, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar & Syama Prasad Mookerjee,’ he said in a tweet.

Amid the heated politics in West Bengal, which will go to polls early next year, the Home Minister Amit Shah has reached Kolkata around 1:30 am on Saturday for a two-day visit.

“Reached Kolkata! I bow to this revered land of greats like Gurudev Tagore, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar & Syama Prasad Mookerjee,” he said in a tweet.


As per the reports, Amit Shah is expected to welcome Suvendu Adhikari to the BJP. Adhikari first resigned from the Mamata Banerjee cabinet on November 27 and then from the party on December 16.

While resigning, Adhikari had urged Banerjee to accept his resignation immediately. Like his earlier leave letters, the latest one also doesn’t specify a reason for his departure.

“I am writing to tender my resignation as a member of All India Trinamool Congress as well as from all other positions held by me in the party and its associate organs with immediate effect,” Adhikari wrote.

Yesterday, with Trinamool Congress leader Kabirul Islam resignation from the post of the general secretary of the party’s minority cell, it was the fourth exit in the last 24 hours from TMC.

Trinamool Congress MLA Shilbhadra Dutta has tendered his resignation from the party on Friday morning. The MLA from Barrackpore had openly resented due to the ‘interference’ by poll strategist Prashant Kishor in the choice of candidates for the state election.

On Thursday, Suvendu Adhikari and Jitendra Tiwari, MLA from Pandabeswar had tendered resignation from the party.

Cop Diptanshu Chowdhury (retd) has also resigned from the post of South Bengal State Transport Corporation and head of the state’s grievance monitoring cell and sent his letter to West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and governor on Thursday,

These back-to-back exit has reinforced worries for the ruling TMC government in Bengal ahead of the state assembly polls which is just five months away.




Coronavirus cases in India cross 1 crore mark, Rahul Gandhi slams govt over failed lockdown citing numbers


‘The unplanned lockdown did not manage to ‘win the battle in 21 days’ as the PM claimed, but it surely destroyed millions of lives in the country,’ Rahul Gandhi said.

India, this morning, passed the one crore coronavirus cases mark becoming second after USA to cross the grim mark in terms of caseload.

Since the virus has entered the country, nearly 1.45 lakh deaths have been reported in the country. However, the United States have double count as compared to India’s with 3,13,588 deaths.

On a positive side, as per the government’s records, India’s recovery rate of 95 per cent is the highest globally.

In the last 24 hours, 25,152 fresh infections took India’s Covid tally to 1,00,04,599, the government data showed this morning.

347 single-day deaths due to Covid were recorded, taking the tally to 1,45,136.

Launching a sharp attack over the surge in cases, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in a tweet said, “1 Crore covid infections with almost 1.5 lakh deaths! The unplanned lockdown did not manage to ‘win the battle in 21 days’ as the PM claimed, but it surely destroyed millions of lives in the country.”
