New Delhi: There is bad news all around, and crows disrupting shoppers in Saudi Arabia is not the best omen for times to come.

He cares, he doesn’t care, he cares…. Congress Rajya Sabha MP Jairam Ramesh assesses PM CARES fund.
Today marks 3 months since the ‘PM CARES’ Fund aka ‘Modi Fund’ was announced.
Its purpose, the name, the massive fundraising, its special treatment & the thousands of crores unspent raises many questions.
The only clear answer is that PM DOES NOT REALLY CARE.

Congress leader Gaurav Pradhan remembers Savarkar rather differently — with a Justin Bieber song.
Remembering #VeerSavarkar on his birth anniversary today. An esteemed writer, he wrote 9 mercy petitions to the British, seeking mercy & promising to not revolt. He owed allegiance to the British Raj, receiving regular monthly pensions. Sharing #SavarkarAnthem here! #SpeakUpIndia pic.twitter.com/YZedLi6Vwd
