US Senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris responded to President Donald Trump’s racist thread against four minority Congresswomen, quite critically. Her determination to keep Trump out of office is indeed note-worthy.
It defiles the office of the President.
And I won't share it here.
It’s time to get Trump out of office and unite the country.

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh called out Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal for shedding “crocodile tears” after the latter said he would move the court over the CBI’s closure report on the Bargari sacrilege case.
Don’t fool the people with your crocodile tears, @officeofssbadal. Explain why you didn’t investigate the Bargari cases yourself as Home Minister & sent them to CBI. At whose behest has CBI filed the closure report? Just wait, we will ensure that the guilty are brought to book. https://t.co/5EQvM6oOzY

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi joined the celebration over International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) verdict that stayed the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
I welcome the ICJ verdict.
My thoughts tonight are with #KulbhushanJadhav , alone in a prison cell in Pakistan & with his distraught family for whom this verdict brings a rare moment of relief, joy & renewed hope, that he will one day be free to return to his home in India 🇮🇳

On the other side of the border, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is claiming victory too. He is happy that the ICJ did not acquit Jadhav and he assured that proceedings would take place according to the law.
Appreciate ICJ’s decision not to acquit, release & return Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav to India. He is guilty of crimes against the people of Pakistan. Pakistan shall proceed further as per law.

And here is Animal Husbandry Minister Giriraj Singh taking a dig at the Pakistan government’s tweet over the ICJ verdict. Why are we not surprised?

AIPWA secretary and CPI(ML) politbureau member Kavita Krishnan asked a rather pertinent question after German Ambassador to India visited the RSS headquarters. Read on to find out.
'world's largest voluntary organization…not uncontroversially perceived' is how German Ambassador to India normalises RSS which is known to admire Nazi anti-Semitic purges as 'race pride' that India shd emulate. Is it official German policy to approve fascists? @tazgezwitscher pic.twitter.com/W4skKaTt1s

Actor-turned politician Urmila Matondkar was extremely pleased after her “wonderful meeting” with Sonia Gandhi and for all the “valuable guidance” she received. We wonder if it would help her in the upcoming Assembly elections in Maharashtra.
Thank you so much honourable Smt Sonia Gandhi ji for a wonderful meeting and your most valuable guidance 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/dXZkCELIfQ

Tejasvi Surya, BJP MP from Bengaluru South, was deeply “hurt” after seeing temples being destroyed in Hampi. He said such destruction happened five centuries ago by Bahamani Sultans. We just hope this doesn’t snowball into another temple dispute.
Hampi was witness to the golden era of Vijayanagara Empire that showcased the Hindu civilization's rich spiritual heritage & knowledge through its architecture.
This attempt to destroy our heritage sites in Hampi, is an attempt to insult and destroy our cultural heritage. pic.twitter.com/EhOrvlMpkD
