The Shiv Sena has demanded that India be declared a "Hindu Rashtra." In an interview to the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna, Sena president Uddhav Thackeray lashed out at the Centre over the situation in Kashmir and said that for the common man, nothing had changed under the new government. "Once the elections are here, the Prime Minister tours states. Then he had also gone to Kashmir. Why doesn't the Prime Minister go to Kashmir now and stand behind Hindu brethren?" questioned Uddhav, adding that the Shiv Sena is willing to fight for the sake of Hindutva. "What are the Hindus in other political parties doing? Or are they ashamed of calling themselves Hindus?" he lashed out. Uddhav said that there is no option other than to declare India as "Hindu Rashtra." "Enough of pandering to secularism. Secularism has led to injustice against Hindus," he alleged. "It is difficult to understand what is happening in the country," charged Uddhav, "the lives of the common man continue as it is. The fog of uncertainty over their lives has not lifted." "The government has changed, but did the lives of common people change? What are you going to do about it?" he asked. By Premji

Congress party president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi has flagged off a three-day bus yatra named “27 Saal UP Behaal” from the party headquarters on Saturday aiming at the Uttar Pradesh elections. Along with senior leaders, its general secretary in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad, the newly-appointed Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar and the party's chief ministerial candidate Sheila Dikshit will travel across the state in the bus to deliver their electoral message. “This time people in Uttar Pradesh want development. They see the BJP, BSP and the Samajwadi Party as parties which create a divide. We want clean politics in Uttar Pradesh and this is our main agenda,” Azad said. "The Congress Party was there in power at the Centre for 60 years. During that time, they deteriorated the condition of our country. From other parties, they are now asking for the amount of work done. But they never give an account of what they did in the 60 years when they were in power," mocking at the Congress bus yatra, Samajwadi Party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said. "It was there in power in Uttar Pradesh for most of the time except for 27 years. No development took place during their regime in the state and they are now seeking an explanation from the other parties. All these tricks of the Congress will not work and no matter how many rallies they conduct, the people of Uttar Pradesh are not going to fall in their trap as they know the reality," he added.

Hillary Clinton has picked Tim Kaine as her choice for Vice President. There are different views in favour and against the choice. Most delegates of the Democratic National Convention gave positive reviews to Hillary Clinton’s choice for vice president, saying that he will appeal to moderates, but do little to soothe disenchanted Bernie Sanders supporters. Angie Morelli, a Sanders delegate from Nevada, said Kaine was a horrible pick. “In a time when she is trying to cater to Sanders supporters, it was more catering to conservative voters and she’s not going to get any wave from it.” Dwight Bullard, a Florida state senator, said not one of the 70-plus Sanders delegates in his state including himself is happy with the selection. “If you bring in someone with great credentials, that’s fine, but inclusivity of the progressive agenda can be a more important message,” Bullard said. Donald Trump’s campaign has already given a nickname for Hillary Clinton’s new running mate - “Corrupt Kaine.” The Trump campaign calls Virginia Senator Tim Kaine “ethically challenged,” citing a Politico report that he accepted $160,000 in gifts from 2001 to 2009, when he was Virginia’s lieutenant governor and governor. Trump’s senior communications adviser Jason Miller said, “the Status Quo ticket of Clinton-Kaine wants us to believe in a rigged system that enriches them at your expense.” By Premji

The preacher televangalist Zakir Naik who is being alleged for coercing and forcing people to convert to islam and for joining the ISIS has now claimed that he is an Indian Muslim and praises Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The terror monger is being investigated by agencies for the alleged illegal activities. In an interview, Zakir Naik praised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for reaching out to Muslim countries. The Mumbai-based preacher called terror outfit Islamic State or ISIS ‘un-Islamic’ and said he is proud to be an Indian Muslim. “Modi is the only prime minister of India who has visited so many Muslim countries in just two years. This will strengthen relations between India and other Muslim countries. It will strengthen relationship of Hindus and Muslims too. If his intention is to maintain unity between Hindus and Muslims and between India and other Muslim countries, I am totally for him,” Naik said “Jihad means to strive and struggle to make the society better. It also stands for self-defence. But the Indian media has hyped jihad. Besides non-Muslims, it is misunderstood even by Muslims. IS is killing innocent people which, according to the Quran, is a sin against humanity. I call them anti-Islam state. They have given a wrong meaning to Islam. If someone killed Muslims in Gujarat that does not justify killing innocent Hindus in Mumbai,” Naik said. By Premji
Aam Aadmi Party MP Bhagwant Mann, Live streamed of himself in facebook, driving into Parliament complex and exposing what is, perhaps, the most secured government complex in the country, to a potential attack. Mann, thought it wise to shoot an entire sequence of how he enters Parliament, how many security personnel are present at each check post and where all barricades are present, shifting his camera to frame security personnel every time they were present. Eight security personnel and a gardener lost their lives, when the parliament came under terrorist attack in 2001 and it is unbecoming of an MP to misuse his privileges and expose the security arrangements to the enemies. In the 12-minute video, Mr Mann, 42, gives a running commentary as his SUV crosses security check-points while entering Parliament. "Today I'll show you something you have never seen before," he says. After entering Parliament, the MP walks into a room where questions are selected for Zero Hour and describes the process to his "viewers". Mr Mann said his intention was to show people who voted for him in Punjab a glimpse of Parliament and its functioning. "My people accuse me of not raising their issues in the house. When I told them that questions are decided by a draw of lots but they did not believe me," he said. In the Rajya Sabha, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi accused Mr Mann of a "conspiracy to compromise the security of Parliament and reveal details to anti-national elements". Congress leader Anand Sharma questioned why the government, despite its demands for action, had not yet made any move or even blocked the video. "I will make a statement in the house to put across my view and apologise," said Mr Mann after meeting the Speaker. "The issue of Mann's video is serious. Some kind of action should be taken as 13 people had laid down their lives protecting Parliament," said Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who summoned Mr Mann. By Premji
