Going all guns blazing against the central government, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday accused it of trying to "destabilise and divide" her state for the sake of the Darjeeling parliamentary seat, and said the Narendra Modi dispensation was being run from BJP office.
BJP MLA Sangeet Som has clarified that he does "not oppose the Taj Mahal," but instead opposes "the Mughals who built it." His remarks came hours after he threatened to "change" history if people like Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, "who tried to wipe out Hindus", are seen as part of Indian culture.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday accused the Congress party of spreading lies about Goods and Services Tax (GST). Addressing a rally in Gandhinagar in Gujarat, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said that the Congress party was an equal partner in the decision on the tax reform.
