    Union Minister Smriti Irani today hit out at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for his attack on the NDA government over a food park project in his constituency of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, saying he had ignored it for the last 10 years. "The food park was announced in 2010, when the Congress government was there (at the Centre). Eight extensions were sought for the project as it was not considered viable.

  • Kumar vishwas illicit relationship

    No relief for AAP leader Kumar Vishwas in 'illicit relationship' row:

    Delhi High Court refused to give any interim relief to senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas on a party volunteer's complaint on alleged "rumours" about their 'illicit relationship', saying his plea challenging the Delhi women's commission summons had some "blatant" faults. Justice Rajiv Shakdher said one "defect" in the plea was that the volunteer should have been made a party in the petition as it was on her complaint that the summons were issued. The other "fault" pointed out by the court was that Delhi government need not be impleaded, as the plea has not sought removal of any member of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW). The court refused to consider the repeated pleas of Kumar Vishwas' counsel Somnath Bharti for an interim stay on the summons, saying that grant of any relief at this stage, without the presence of the complainant, would be "like putting the cart before the horse". The court also told Bharti that he ought not have disclosed the name of the complainant during the hearing. (Express Photo) (16/05/2015)
