Constitution Targeted in ‘New India’!

24 Jun 2019

What is the government trying to do? Should we anticipate changes in the basic premise and the framework of the Constitution? Senior journalist Urmilesh explains.




After returning to power, with the vision of a ‘New India’, the Modi government has included the ‘one nation, one election’ proposal in its primary agendas. Instead of paying attention to the severe issues like unemployment, poverty, communal polarisation and diseases, the government decided to raise the ‘one nation, one election’ issue in the first all-party meeting it had called. It would have been a different story if the agenda would have been about overall election reforms. What is the government trying to do? Should we anticipate changes in the basic premise and the framework of the Constitution? Senior journalist Urmilesh explains.

Tales of Bonbibi: The Forest Goddess worshipped by Hindus and Muslims

In times like these, when the political unrest in our country is soaked in communal tension, tales of communal harmony where Hindus and Muslims have worshipped the same Gods and Goddesses since ages, need to be reiterated time and again.
