New Delhi: The Citizenship Amendment Bill 2019 (CAB) was tabled for discussion in Lok Sabha today and sailed through. But not before political parties sparred over its consequences.

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav sees CAB as another diversionary and divisive BJP tactic.

Conversely, BJYM’s Santosh Ranjan Rai celebrates India as a country for, by and of Hindus — ‘Hindustan’!

Activist Sudheendra Kulkarni hits out at Home Minister Amit Shah for `lie’ about Partition

Kapil Sibal, lawyer and Congress Rajya Sabha MP, registers his strong complaint about ‘CAB’ — and its driving force.

Congress Rajya Sabha MP Jairam Ramesh finds a glimmer of hope in the 1,004 scientists who have opposed the Citizenship Bill.

Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut gives Amit Shah a solution to the CAB problem, but will the Home Minister listen?

The Unnao case keeps rape on the agenda too: here’s Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s poem but it’s the photograph which speaks volumes!

Badminton player Saina Nehwal exchanges passing shots with a journalist for applauding the Hyderabad police ‘encounter’. While we appreciate your feelings, Ms. Nehwal, what about the rule of law?

Congress’s Pawan Khera attacks the media for criticising Rahul Gandhi’s remark that “India is known as the rape capital of the world’’ quite forgetting that Prime Minister Modi had said something similar before coming to power.

The only thing BJP’s Karnataka bypoll win “revalidates” is the voter  comfort level with defections.

A face-off between Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi and former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’s wife over trees, in which their bark has a lot of bite to it.

We love you too, Michael Caine.
