Why is Prime Minister Narendra Modi silent on allegations relating to Rafale deal, asks Rahul Gandhi after CWC meet. "If you see the Modi model in Gujarat, it was a lie, clearly".

MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for visiting temples - "mandir hopping - while campaigning in Gujarat and ignoring mosques and dargahs".

This is the first time he was speaking after chairing his first CWC meeting as the Congress president with his mother Sonia Gandhi seated next to him. When we went to Gujarat and we spoke to the people of Gujarat, they said there is no model. "What is going on is the stealing of resources of the people of Gujarat and that's their design".

Palestinian Presidency Calls US Veto a Mockery of the International Community
The United States has vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution against recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. The 14 other countries on the Security Council voted in favor, but US Ambassador Nikki Haley exercised the American veto.

"Members expressed concern about the (standards of) decency in public discourse and political morality in democracy if the Prime Minister himself stooped so low as to accuse his predecessor of anti-national activities", Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala said.

He said, "this is also an indication that neither the BJP nor the Congress is showing any interest to secure Muslim votes". "The BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principal strategy to gain power. The then CAG (Comptroller and Auditor General) Vinod Rai had announced that the government had suffered a loss of ₹1,76,000 crore", he said.

"The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies". "Now they should not blame us", he said. Rebel JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav too took turn to congratulate Rahul on the improved show of his party in the Gujarat polls, dubbing it a "great success".
