IMD predicts heavy rainfall at West Bengal and Sikkim

From the past few days, the discomfort level in the national capital and its surrounding areas such as Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, and Noida has increased due to warm weather conditions.

According to Skymet, scattered rains accompanied with thunderstorm are likely to batter Delhi-NCR between September 13 to September 15.

Notably, Delhi and its nearby regions have not received any significant rainfall activity after August 17.

“These rains would be localized and would not last for long. These rainfall activities would not be widespread,” stated the weather forecasting agency in its advisory.

However, in Mumbai, heavy rains are predicted for the next two days. This will also help the devotees of Lord Ganesha to perform Visarjan without any hindrance on September 12.

The weather experts also predicted that the region in and around Mumbai are likely to receive significant rain and thundershower activity around September 14 or 15, wherein moderate showers with one or two intense spells may appear over the city.

Kiren Rijiju posted P Chidambaram’s old video on unifying language, Again triggered language conflicts

Published

Some minister Amit Shah’s comments, in which he pitched for making Hindi a common language in the country, has re-ignited the debate on ‘Hindi imposition’ with political leaders, particularly those from the south, warning the government against any move to make Hindi a common language in the country.

As a political slugfest erupted over the matter, Minister of State Kiren Rijiju took to Twitter to share an old video in which Congress leader P Chidambaram is heard saying that he hopes efforts to make Hindi as the country’s language would continue.

Rijiju’s tweet came a day after the Congress reacted to Amit Shah’s statement by warning the government against stirring up controversies over “emotive and sensitive issues” and against tinkering with the three-language formula.

Meanwhile, voices of dissent came in from the Bharatiya Janata Party itself with Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa tweeting that for his state “Kannada is the principal language”. “We will never compromise its importance and are committed to promoting Kannada and our state’s culture,” Yediyurappa also said.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is likely to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital on Wednesday, state secretariat sources confirmed on Monday.

Mamata Banerjee will be leaving for New Delhi on Tuesday, he confirmed, the sources said.

The two leaders likely to hold discussions on administrative issues of West Bengal at the meeting, he added.

Mamata Banerjee has been one of the harshest critics of BJP and PM Narendra Modi.

“An appointment was sought by the chief minister’s office last week for an appointment from PM Narendra Modi’s office for the meeting. It will take place in New Delhi on Wednesday,” the official said.

The proposed meeting assumes significance as it will be held at a time when several leaders of the ruling Trinamool Congress and former Kolkata police commissioner Rajeev Kumar are under CBI scanner in connection with the Saradha ponzi scam.

The Saradha group of companies had allegedly duped lakhs of people to the tune of Rs 2500 crore, promising higher rates of returns on their investments.

The last time the two leaders had met was at the convocation ceremony at Visva Bharati University held in Shantiniketan on May 25, 2018.
