NEW DELHI: Known for his funny speeches and remarks, Union Minister Ramdas Athawale left the Lok Sabha in splits after he extended wishes to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on his 49th birthday today. Athawale, during his welcome speech on the election of Om Birla as the Lok Sabha speaker, mocked Rahul Gandhi at his loss from the family bastion of Amethi.
Athawale left Prime Minister Narendra Modi, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, apart from many others, in splits with his remarks. The Republican Party of India (RPI) chief said, Wining and losing is a part and parcel of politics. While one wins, the other loses. Rahulji, you have got this chair and I congratulate you for this.
Athawale continued providing comic relief to his colleagues by saying that Congress had asked him to switch camps and join UPA before the Lok Sabha elections in 2019 but he refused the offer. He said, I stopped on this side (BJP) sensing the direction, in which the wind was blowing. I knew which way the wind was blowing.
Athawale said Modi would continue to do good work and won’t let the Congress regain power in the coming 15 years. He said, Now, our government will run for five years, and for another five years, and five years again. We will keep doing good job; Modi sahib will continue to do the good work. We will not let you come to this side so easily.

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!”
