During the 2014 general election campaign in his Varanasi constituency Narendra Modi had said; “Ganga Maa has called me to serve her”. But after becoming prime minister, he conveniently forgot his words and promises. A true son of Ganga, Prof G D Agarwal, lost his life after 111 days hunger strike for protection of Ganga, but it failed to move his conscience.
After Agrawal’s death the local people came to realise his sacrifice. They reminisced Modi’s words during the campaign and started searching her son; but he was not to be seen anywhere.

Justice Sathyanarayanan has upheld the disqualification of eighteen AIADMK MLAs owing allegiance to Sasikala, the jailed former aide of the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha.

Sasikala, it may be recalled, had claimed the mantle of her menor Jayalalithaa and staked claim for chief ministership.
