You are listening to the Expresso News Update. Here is the latest news from The Indian Express.
“Let us begin with the top headline: With his party rebel MLAs not backing down and the numbers clearly not on his side, Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, battling to save the Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition government, left the CM residence for his family home Wednesday evening, shortly after an emotional speech in which he said he is willing to resign if the MLAs and Sainiks tell him to his face that they do not want him to continue.

Uddhav was seen leaving Varsha, the official residence of the CM, with wife Rashmi and sons Aaditya and Tejas. He left with personal belongings, and was accompanied by Shiv Sainiks all the way to Matoshree, the Thackeray family home.”
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut expressed his apprehensions on dissolution of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly amid the current political crisis in the state. He said, “When such a situation forms in any state, Vidhan Sabha is dissolved. Attempts are being made to kidnap MLAs and take them outside”

“Meanwhile, with coaching centres across Aligarh under scrutiny after protests against the Centre’s Agnipath scheme took a violent turn, many such centres are now closed. On Wednesday, all centres in and around Tappal, a little over 100 km from Delhi, had their shutters down.

In fact, Sudhir Sharma, the owner of the biggest one there — Young India Coaching Centre — has been arrested in connection with the violence.

Across Aligarh district, 76 people have been arrested and 68 taken into preventive custody, of whom at least 11 are operators of coaching centres. Most of the arrests of coaching centre operators were from the Tappal region.”
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attended Congress ‘Satyagraha’ protest in New Delhi yesterday and slammed Central Government for the ‘Agnipath’ Scheme. He also said that the Modi government is weakening the Army of the nation.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India is expecting a 7.5 per cent economic growth rate this year. He underlined the role of BRICS countries amid the global focus on post-COVID recovery.

“In other news: Several areas in Jammu and Kashmir have been reporting heavy rainfall leading to flooding and inundation of low-lying areas since Tuesday. Unusual snowfall too was reported in the higher reaches of Kashmir during the past 24 hours.

Wednesday was the wettest June day in 122 years over Udhampur, which recorded 119.4mm rainfall. At 121mm, rainfall over Batote equalled the all-time record of June 25, 2015. Banihal (100mm) and Anantnag (75mm) recorded the wettest June day since 2012. Other locations in the Union Territory where rainfall was reported include Qazigund – 75mm, Srinagar airport – 62.4mm, Jammu city – 45mm and Bhaderwah – 42mm.”
“With rains abating, there was a slight improvement in the overall flood situation in Assam yesterday. However, Silchar in south Assam’s Barak Valley remained submerged, even 48 hours after an embankment breach. Families continue to be stranded in their waterlogged homes, and the town is facing a massive shortage of food and drinking water. Electricity has also been cut off in several parts of the town. GD Tripathi, chief executive member of the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), told indianexpress.com that the situation was improving. He said: “The rest of the state is slowly coming back to the usual flood management mode. However, Cachar continues to remain critical.”” Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is expected to arrive in Silchar today to assess the situation.


“Lastly, the Kerala High Court has granted anticipatory bail to Malayalam actor Vijay Babu, who has been accused of raping a woman actor, and asked him to surrender before the investigating officer on June 27 for interrogation.

Babu had fled the country fearing arrest after the Kochi city police registered a case against him. He returned to Kochi in the last week of May, after the high court granted him protection from arrest.

Babu faces another case for revealing the identity of the woman actor on social media. The high court had earlier rejected his anticipatory bail plea in the second case after it observed that the offences against the actor were bailable.”
