Hyderabad, July 22 (Hydnow): Minister for IT and Industries KT Rama Rao congratulated Draupadi Murmu on being elected as the 15th President of India.
In a tweet on Friday, the Minister said, ” I hope with your presidential assent, the much awaited women’s reservation bill, Tribal reservations enhancement in Telangana and RoFR amendment bill will be cleared,”.
Taking a jibe at the statement of BJP Telangana unit president Bandi Sanjay, who said that even Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will face ED probe soon, Telangana working president KT Rama Rao thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for appointing Bandi Sanjay as the Chief of Enforcement Directorate.
Taking to micro-blogging site, KTR said now we realise double engine that runs this country is actually “Modi & ED” .
KTR also lamented the Railways’ decision to permanently scrap the senior citizens’ concession on train fares.
Taking to social media, KTR urged Minister of Railways Ashwini Vaishnaw to “review” the decision.
“Dear @AshwiniVaishnaw Ji, Taking care of our elderly people is not just a responsibility but our duty. Was saddened to read that Govt of India has decided to remove the senior citizen concession in train fares. Request you to review the decision & take a compassionate view,” KTR wrote on Twitter.
The Railway Ministry on Wednesday told the Parliament that it had no intention of bringing back the train fare concession for senior citizens after withdrawing it in March, 2020. The 40 per cent discount on train fares for senior citizens was stopped owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. (Hydnow)
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
