A Sikh priest from a gurudwara in Haryana, who had recently joined the farmers protest at Delhis Kundli border, died by suicide on Wednesday. The priest left a handwritten note in Punjabi saying that he was ending his to support the farmers.


The 65-year-old priest, identified as Baba Ram Singh ji Singhra wale, in his suicide note, wrote that he was sacrificing his life ?to express anger and pain against the government’s injustice? to farmers.


A part of the note read: I feel the pain of farmers fighting to ensure their rights. I share their pain because the government is not doing justice to them. To inflict injustice is a sin, but it is also a sin to tolerate injustice. To support farmers, some have returned their awards to the government. I have decided to sacrifice myself.


The note is currently being verified by the police. An official from Sonipat police informed that the priest hailed from Karnal and allegedly shot himself. The exact location of where the incident took place is being verified and police are currently in the process of recording official statements from the deceaseds family members.


The body of the Sikh preacher was taken to Karnal for postmortem examinations where his followers raised slogans against the Union government. Later, the body was taken to the Nanaksar Gurdwara in Singhra village to perform the last rites.


Shiromani Akali Dal leader and former Union Cabinet Minister of Food Processing in the NDA government Harsimrat Kaur Badal shared an image of the Sikh priest alongside the copy of the suicide note in Punjabi.


In her tweet, she said, Even as GOI remains stubborn & refuses to be moved by the suffering of #farmers, Baba Ram Singh ji Singhra wale has committed suicide after being unable to see the suffering around him at Kundli border. Hope GOI wakes up to the tragedy & repeals the 3 agri laws before it’s too late.”


Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has offered condolences on the death of Sikh priest Sant Baba Ram Singh. He tweeted, Sant Baba Ram Singh Ji of Karnal died by suicide after seeing the plight of the farmers on the border. My condolences and tribute in this hour of grief. Many farmers have sacrificed their lives. The brutality of the Modi government has crossed all limits. Quit stubbornness and immediately withdraw the anti-agricultural law!

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.”

Shashi Tharoor

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.

The Raaas (2018)

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!”
