Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mother, Heeraben Modi, on Saturday, received an emotional letter from a Punjab farmer, who was protesting the Centre’s farm laws with several others from the country.
In the letter, he had asked the PM Modi’s almost 100- year-old mother to convince her son (PM Modi) to revoke the farm laws, which caused nation-wide agitation.
Wrote by Harpreet Singh from Punjabs Golu Ka Modh village, the letter included several other points, which conveyed farmer’s message and their situations. The letter urged PM’s mother to use all of her powers in changing her sons mind. Singh wrote, These laws were passed for favouring Adani, Ambani and other corporates. We have been protesting these laws since the last 60 day.
He further stated that it was freezing cold at the Delhi- Haryana border and the protest took nearly 70 lives. Centre conducted many rounds of talks with farmers but there was no outcome from these meetings.
I write this letter with a heavy heart. The annadatas are forced to sleep on the roads and the government is showing no sympathy towards us. The cold weather is making us ill. 90-95- year ?old women, men and children are also protesting with us. This worries us all, he added.
Till now Centre- farmers had held 11 rounds of talks on farm laws but the situation was getting no better. As per reports, farmers might conduct their ?tractor rally? in Delhi on January 26, adjacent to the Republic Day parade.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
