Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the 16th century Maratha warrior king, fought the Mughals most of his life and is known for his military conquests.

“Agra’s under-construction museum will be known by the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. In your new Uttar Pradesh, there is no space for the symbols of “the mentality of slavery”. Shivaji Maharaj is our hero. Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!” he tweeted in Hindi.
Chief Minister Yogi also directed officials to complete the remaining work of Agra Smart City Project at the earliest, saying this project is among his government’s priorities and should be taken up with the utmost urgency.

Expressing his satisfaction over Agra achieving the second rank among smart cities in the country and the first among those in UP in a recent survey, the CM also asked officials to expedite the Agra metro and airport projects.


 
No project should suffer for the want of money, he told officials, adding he would personally speak to the Centre if any requirement of money arises.

He said the AMRUT and JNNURM schemes too should be given impetus.

Apprising the chief minister of the progress in made in Agra Smart City project, officials told him that out of a total 19 tasks under the project, four have been completed while 15 are in progress.

A time-line for every work has been prepared and all these works will be completed by August 2021, the officials told the CM.

During the review of the progress of the projects and mega developmental tasks of Agra division comprising Agra, Firozabad, Mainpuri and Mathura districts, Yogi also interacted with public representatives through video conferencing.

He also received feedback from other lawmakers and officials about the development work in the division.


 
His attention was drawn towards the drinking water problem in the region to which he responded positively and immediately asked officials to prepare a proposal by consulting public representatives and the concerned agencies.

At present, there are a total of 22 ongoing projects worth over Rs 50 crore each. Out of these 11 projects are in Agra, five in Firozabad, four in Mathura and two in Mainpuri, the government’s official statement said.

The chief minister reiterated that the delay in the developmental projects will not be tolerated and the work should be done on a fixed time-line while observing all the quality norms.

Kangana Ranaut flies back to Manali, says leaving Mumbai with ‘heavy heart’, after being ‘terrorised’


Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut who was at the loggerheads with the ruling Shiv Sena in Maharashtra left the state on Monday and said she was doing so with a “heavy heart”.

She further said she was doing so after being “terrorised” with attempts to demolish her office. “Must say my analogy about PoK was bang on,” she said.

“With a heavy heart leaving Mumbai, the way I was terrorised all these days constant attacks and abuses hurled at me attempts to break my house after my workplace, alert security with lethal weapons around me, must say my analogy about POK was bang on,” she tweeted as she headed to the airport.

After landing in Chandigarh, she tweeted that her security had reduced and people were greeting her with joy.

“It seems this time I was saved. There was a time when I felt a mother’s touch in Mumbai, but today the situation is such that I am lucky to be alive. The moment Shiv Sena became Sonia Sena, the Mumbai administration became a terror,” she posted in Hindi.

The Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had last week demolished the Bandra office of the actress for alleged unauthorised modifications/extensions.

A team of the BMC H-West Ward officers accompanied by a police posse had reached the office with bulldozers, JCBs and other heavy equipment and took up the demolition work from the outside.

The development came barely hours after the BMC pasted a notice outside the office rejecting a reply filed by Kangana’s lawyer, Rizwan Siddique, to September 8 notice in which the civic body had listed a series of violations in the ongoing works in her office.

Kangana Ranaut was locked in verbal feud with Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut for her comments over the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case and was given a Y-plus security by the centre.

The verbal duel started after Kangana’s “Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir” comment last Thursday.

She had also said that she feared Mumbai Police more than what she has dubbed as ‘movie mafia’.

Sanjay Raut reacted through an editorial in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna by saying, “This issue concerns the pride of Maharashtra and there will be no compromise on this front. Ranaut needs to apologise for her PoK remarks or she will face the music from our women’s wing.”

‘Save your own lives because PM is busy with peacock’: Rahul Gandhi


‘The unplanned lockdown was the gift of one man’s ego, which led to the spread of coronavirus across the country,’ he said.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the surge in coronavirus cases on Monday saying citizens should save their own lives because PM is busy with peacock.

In a tweet in Hindi, Rahul Gandhi attacked the Prime Minister over the surge in cases as well as an unplanned lockdown.

Taking it to Twitter, Rahul Gandhi said, “India’s coronavirus cases will cross 50 lakh this week and active cases will cross 10 lakh. The unplanned lockdown was the gift of one man’s ego, which led to the spread of coronavirus across the country. Modi government said “be self-reliant” which meant “save your own lives” because the Prime Minister is busy with peacock.”


Rahul Gandhi was referring to the Prime Minister’s earlier tweet in which he shared a video of slideshows of him with a peacock at his official residence.

PM was seen feeding grains to Peacock – the national bird of India. He shared the video over social media.

The video was shared with a caption “precious moments” and showed various snippets of the Prime Minister spending time feeding the peacocks.

Rahul Gandhi has been vocal in attacking the government through his tweets.

However, Union minister Prakash Javadekar had earlier mocked him for his tweets.

“Rahul Gandhi is tweeting on a daily basis. It seems the Congress will become a party of tweets as they are doing no work among the people and losing one leader after another. A frustrated and depressed party is trying to launch all sorts of attacks on the government,” Javadekar had said.
