In his latest Facebook post, MoS for Home Kiren Rijiju has claimed that Narendra Modi’s prime ministership had been predicted by French astrologer Nostradamus in 1555. “French prophet Nostradamus wrote that from 2014 to 2026, a man will lead India, whom initially, people will hate, but after that people will love him so much that he will be engaged in changing the country’s plight and direction. This was predicted in the year 1555. A middle aged superpower administrator will bring golden age not only in India but on the entire world. Under his leadership India will not only just become the global master, but many countries will also come into the shelter of India,” Rijiju wrote.
Kirti Azad was recently at a party hosted by fellow rebel BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha, where he was engrossed in conversation with other guests. So much so that he did even not notice that his wife, Poonam, had been missing from the scene for over 40 minutes. It so happened that Poonam accidentally got locked in the restroom. She had left her cellphone in her handbag, which was lying near the table where Azad was holding forth. Someone asked Azad about the unattended bag. He promptly took the bag and kept by his side, but did not realise his wife’s absence.
With a hearing coming up in Delhi High Court Monday about a recently notified ban on 344 fixed drug combinations, there is unprecedented secrecy in the Health Ministry around the report of the Dr Kokate Committee report, based on which the notification was issued. The sole copy of the report is in the office of minister J P Nadda since there are fears that it may get into the hands of lawyers employed by the pharmaceutical industry who might want to see it before it is officially submitted to court. The ministry has already received four petitions from pharmaceutical companies, and 16 more are said to be on the way.
