Ahmedabad, Oct 27: Angered over PDP president Mehbooba Mufti's recent remarks about the scrapping of Article 370, Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel on Monday said the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir should move to Pakistan with family if she doesn't like India and its laws.

Patel, addressing a bypoll rally in Kurali village of Vadodara district, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah brought in the CAA and scrapped Article 370, which accorded special status to the erstwhile state of J&K, for the safety and security of the country.

"Mehbooba is blabbering for the last two days. She should buy plane tickets and move to Karachi with her family. That will be good for everyone.

"If she wants, people of Karjan taluka would send her money to buy plane tickets," said Patel, attacking the Kashmiri politician, a former ally of the BJP.

"Those who do not like India or laws introduced by the government, such as CAA or abrogation of Article 370, should go to Pakistan.

"Anyone who is not feeling safe or happy should immediately move to Pakistan," said Patel, a senior BJP leader.

He was addressing the rally in support of BJP candidate from the Karjan assembly seat Akshay Patel. Karjan is one of the eight assembly polls going to bypolls on November 3.

"If you still stay here, you will face action. Anyone who will do something wrong would face action. We do not want to keep trouble makers, irrespective of their caste or religion.

Mufti, in her first interaction with the media after her release from detention last week, had said she will not hoist the tricolor till the flag of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir was restored.

The PDP chief had criticised the revocation of Article 370 and said Parliament had no power to take it away.

Referring to the "tough" image of Minister of State for Home Pradeepsinh Jadeja, Patel said no one from Juhapura, a minority-dominated area in Ahmedabad, creates any trouble now.

Referring to the Gunda Act and anti-land grabbing law recently passed in the Assembly, Patel, without naming anyone, said anti-social elements have nowhere to go except Pakistan.

"Other states are also acting tough on such elements. It seems they are left with no other option than to go to Pakistan. They are free to go there now.

"We also do not want to keep them. India's population has also gone over 130 crore. Everyone can live in peace if they go," he said.

Jaipur, Nov 20: Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday gave a strong statement on 'love-jihad' and said that it is a term manufactured by the BJP to divide the nation. "Marriage is a matter of personal liberty and bringing a law to curb it is completely unconstitutional," he tweeted on Friday.

Gehlot took to Twitter and unleashed a series of tweets to express his thoughts on 'love-jihad' to say, "Love Jihad is a word manufactured by BJP to divide the Nation & disturb communal harmony. Marriage is a matter of personal liberty, bringing a law to curb it is completely unconstitutional & it will not stand in any court of law. Jihad has no place in Love."

In the second tweet, he said, "They are creating an environment in the nation where consenting adults would be at the mercy of state power. Marriage is a personal decision & they are putting curbs on it, which is like snatching away personal liberty."

In the third tweet on 'love-jihad', he said, "It seems a ploy to disrupt communal harmony, fuel social conflict & disregard constitutional provisions like the state not discriminating against citizens on any ground.

Love Jihad is a word manufactured by BJP to divide the Nation & disturb communal harmony. Marriage is a matter of personal liberty, bringing a law to curb it is completely unconstitutional & it will not stand in any court of law. Jihad has no place in Love.

It needs to be mentioned here that UP has announced its intention to bring in a law against 'love-jihad' and the MP government is also planning to bring in a law on similar lines.

New Delhi, Nov 18: After the Diwali weekend and Bhai Dooj celebrations came to an end, India recorded more than 30 per cent jump in new cases of COVID-19 with 38,617 new cases reported in past 24 hours pushing the cumulative the tally to 89,12,907, data from the Union Health Ministry showed on Wednesday.

The toll rose to 1,30,993 with 474 more deaths in one day. The number of active cases stood at 4,46,805.

As many as 83,35,109 people have recovered from the disease so far.

On Tuesday, India reported 29,164 new COVID-19 cases and 449 deaths. The figure of Wednesday is almost 32 per cent more in the single-day spike.

However, the reason could be a rise in the testing as total 9,37,279 samples were tested on Tuesday after a long weekend of testing eight lakh samples on an average, testing data from the Indian Council of Medical Research showed.

The situation of COVID-19 in Delhi-NCR remained grim. The latest surge has left the healthcare system gasping for relief. The hospital, both government and private hospitals have 10 per cent ICU beds with ventilators, which are extremely crucial for patients with severity.

Apart from severe patients, the patients with moderate symptoms are made to wait hours before admission in the hospitals. Besides, non-Covid patients are running from pillar to post just to acquire a single hospital bed in the capital city.

The situation has forced the Delhi government to reconsider imposing restrictions it lifted months ago. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sent a proposal to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and the Centre to consider allowing only 50 people to attend weddings and imposing lockdown in market areas which may emerge as hotspots.

Besides, the district administration of Gautam Budh Nagar decided to randomly test commuters going to Noida from Delhi for the coronavirus from Wednesday. The decision has come amid a surge in coronavirus cases in the capital.

Globally, the coronavirus has infected more than 5.55 crore people and killed 13,36,892, according to Johns Hopkins University.
