“From now on, you will be free to act, speak and work according to your ideology and the basic political instincts,” Modi said.

The prime minister said Ansari leans toward “certain circles” as it did in diplomatic missions, mainly in the countries of Western Asia, as well as Rector of Aligarh Muslim University and chair the Commission welfare of minorities.

“In Sabhi zimmedariyo ko nibhate tinting ak ek Prakar ke me Dayre rahe jiski vajah is APKI Kuch bhavanayein rahi hongi, Kuch soch rahi Hogi (You held responsibilities and has been associated with a certain” cirlcle “because opinions and perceptions are certain” , Said Modi.

Modi’s comments come in the context of the recent interview with Ansari Rajya Sabha TV, where he analyzed the cautious about growing intolerance in the country without being critical of a political party or individual.

As outgoing Vice President Ansari said Wednesday there was a sense of discomfort and insecurity among Muslims in the country, saying that the atmosphere of acceptance was threatened. Ansari, 80, also described as “disturbing thought” that indienité citizens were interrogated.

In the interview, Ansari spoke of incidents of lynching and “Ghar Wapsi ‘and rationalists killings as” breaking Indian values, impaired ability of authorities at different levels in different places to apply this should be an application of the Normal law of work and has done all the same as any indienité interviewed citizens is a disturbing thought. ”

Ansari, whose second five-year term as vice chairman ends on Friday, made the remarks in the context of intolerance and incidents of cows Vigilantism and comments made by some leaders of saffron in relation to the minority community.

He also said that, according to him, the propensity to assert his nationalism power of the day was “useless.” “I’m Indian and that’s it,” he said.

When asked a question about the government’s response to concerns about growing intolerance, Ansari had turned the issue to diplomatic allusion rather than taking a critical view of the ruling party.

“Well, there’s always an explanation and there is always a reason. Now it’s a matter of judgment, accepted the explanation accepts the reasoning and its raison d’etre,” said the diplomat when asked to comment specifically on government response.

Oppn’s vice-prez candidate Gopalkrishna Gandhi seeks support from AIADMK factions

New Delhi: Opposition vice presidential candidate Gopalkrishna Gandhi wrote to the two AIADMK factions for their support.

“In a letter I wrote to the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, I requested the support of All India members Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam for my candidacy for the post of Vice-President of India.

Doklam border stand-off: All that has happened so far

Doklam border stand-off: All that has happened so far

At a meeting held Friday at the residence of Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi, the government informed opposition party leaders of the current opposition between India and China on the issue of the Doklam border.

The meeting is part of the monsoon session of Parliament that could have heat exchanges between the Center and opposition leaders.

Participants in the meeting of senior officials such as Ghulam Nabi Azad of Congress, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Sharad Yadav of the JD (T), Sitaram Yechury of the PCI (M), among others.

The government is believed to have told the opposition that it had confidence to resolve the problem through diplomatic channels, a solution that has found support from most of the opposition leaders, except Mulayam Singh who asked the government to “teach China a lesson.”

Meanwhile, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, is also likely to visit China on July 26 and 27 for the NSA BRICS meeting. BRICS is an association of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Earlier, in a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, in the framework of the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, PM Modi has probably raised the issue during the debate.

The Doklam trigger, which began in mid-June, allowed the Chinese government spokesman and his media to invoke the 1962 war between the two countries. Last week, Chinese media have resorted to recalling the editorials and images for five decades before India warned of the aftermath of the war.

Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, however, said Tuesday at a conference hosted by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the High Commissioner of India that he had no doubt that India could not solve the problem by consulting the recent Doklam contraction with china.

The Doklam stop between the Indian army and the China EPL came after the pilgrims Kailash Mansarovar denied them entry by Nathu La Pass, on the border of Sikkim.

The problem began after India accused China of trying to build a road in the Doklam area – a disputed territory in the Chumbi valley in a tri-crossing of India, Bhutan and China. China claims ownership of Doklam region of strategic importance to India, China and Bhutan.

India sees it as a dagger pointing to its so-called “chicken neck” sector in the northeast and rapid road construction in Chinese Tibet could make things difficult for India. Meanwhile, Sikkim is one of the few sectors in which India has an advantage.

In the last month since the beginning of the impasse, there was a warm exchange of words from both sides. However, the two countries said they will use official diplomatic channels to find a solution.

Indian students worry about physical safety in US: Survey

WASHINGTON: Indian students have a “high level of concern” about a potential study in the United States and many of them worry about their physical safety and the feeling of not being, according to a new survey.

The International Education Institute (IIE) suggested that the final outcome of the June Supreme Court order that temporarily confirmed President Donald Trump’s order to restrict the entry of six mostly Muslim citizens into the United States weighs in mind.

With more than one million foreign students pursuing higher education in the United States, who contribute more than $ 36 billion to the US economy, the stakes are high, he said.

Founded in 1919, IIE is a non-profit corporation based in the United States to build peaceful and fair societies by advancing the stock market, by creating efficiency and promoting access to opportunities. It focuses on the international exchange of students and assistance, foreign relations and international peace and security.

IIE said the survey results indicate the highest level of institutional concern by the inclusion of students from the Middle East, followed by India.

Thirty-one percent of institutions are very concerned about the fact that Middle Eastern students who accepted admission offers may not reach the school in the fall and 20 percent are very concerned that Indian students do not Can reach the school, he said.
“This uncertainty raises valid concerns about whether students in the Middle East will not make up their minds about the United States study,” he said.

“Securing and maintaining a visa are presented as the main concern of these students were reported in 46 percent of institutions, while they feel welcome in the United States was almost equal concern, with 41 percent of institutions and taking note of Their conversations with students, “he added.

According to the IIE, the results of the study suggest that students in India “are very concerned about the study of potential in the US, 80% of institutions responded that physical security is the most pronounced concern for Indian students, while 31% of establishments reported that host sentiment was also a concern. ”

“Although the overall application seems to remain stable, the rate of performance and a concern for personal safety suggest the possibility that Indian students do not continue to become the second international group of higher education in the United States,” said IIE.

“Their concerns may make some Indian students accept admission offers other major host countries, particularly those issuing student visas more quickly.”

However, the IIE said that despite the widespread concern that the interest of international students in the United States could report the evidence from this study suggest that “this is not the case.”

He said that the interest of international students in the United States generally remains generally despite the current environment.
A 2 percent decrease in the expected rate of return this year compared to last year.
