    BJP is involved in narcotics smuggling in Punjab, says Amar Singh: Samajwadi Party MP Amar Singh today alleged that BJP was opposing the movie 'Udta Punjab' as it would "expose" the fact that the party was involved in narcotics smuggling in the state. He also claimed that "narcotics smuggling racket" was behind the infiltration and subsequent attack on a military base there, in an apparent reference to the Pathankot Air Force base assault in January. "Now a days there is a discussion on the movie Udta Punjab. I am not making any direct allegation myself but the Court has said that narcotics was consumed in Punjab and freedom of expression should not be interfered with," Singh said. (PTI)

    50 dead at gay club in America's worst mass shooting: 50 people died and another 53 were injured early today when a heavily-armed gunman opened fire and seized hostages at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, police said in the worst mass shooting in US history. Terrified survivors -- who moments before were laughing and dancing with friends -- described how the gunman named by media as a US citizen of Afghan descent raked the club with bullets, prompting a police SWAT team to storm the venue. "We have cleared the building, and it is with great sadness that I share we have not 20, but 50 casualties in addition to the shooter," Mayor Buddy Dyer told a mid-morning news briefing in Orlando, more than doubling the previously given death toll. "There are another 53 that are hospitalised." (Reuetrs)

He accused Rahul of promoting tainted leaders and the former Prime Minister of keeping mum on the drug problem in the state in spite of former Chief Election Commissioner S Y Quraishi drawing his attention towards the issue. “Manmohan Singh maintained a stony silence despite Quraishi informing him of the enormity of the drug menace in Punjab during the 2012 assembly polls, while Amarinder chose to side with SAD minister Bikram Singh Majithia by opposing a CBI probe," Mann said.
