New Delhi, Dec 5: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday summoned Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal for deliberations before they meet agitating farmers demanding the repeal of farm sector reforms.

The government has offered eight amendments to the three reforms and a written assurance on the continuation of the minimum support price regime as a way to end their nine-day agitation at the borders of Delhi.

"I am hopeful that the farmers will think positively and end their agitation," Tomar said before going to the PM and other ministers.

Farmers organisations said they were here for a fight to the finish and would not rest till the three farm laws were repealed.

Mumbai, Dec 1: Actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar joined Shiv Sena, in the presence of party president and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday.

Uddhav Thackeray's wife Rashmi Thackeray was also present.

Sena leader and party's MP Sanjay Raut had said on Monday that Urmila Matondkar may join the ranks of the Shiv Sena on December 1.

"She (Urmila Matondkar) may join Shiv Sena tomorrow. She is a Shivsainik. We are happy that she is joining the Shiv Sena. This will strengthen the party's 'mahila aghadi'," Raut told reporters earlier.

Matondkar had last year resigned from the Congress party, a key ally of the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra.

Matondkar had unsuccessfully contested the 2019 Lok Sabha election from the Mumbai North constituency and resigned from the party in September last year citing inaction on the part of "key functionaries of Mumbai Congress".

Mumbai, Nov 21: Continuing its swoop on the entertainment industry, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Saturday arrested TV industry’s comedy queen Bharti Singh.

In a swoop, the NCB carried out raids at the residence of celebrity couple Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa. The sleuths seized from their residence 86.5 gms of ganja.

“Both Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa has accepted that they consumed ganja,” said NCB Mumbai unit’s Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede.

The couple were summoned to the Exchange Building, the NCB’s Mumbai zonal office.

While Bharti Singh has been arrested, her husband Haarsh is being examined.

The couple were taken in separate vehicles to the NCB office.

As Bharti entered the NCB office, she said: “….nothing….they have called us for some questioning”.

Earlier in the morning, the NCB teams landed at their premises in Andheri, Lokhandwala Complex and Versova areas and carried out search operations.

Bharti (36) and Haarsh (33) are among the leading couple in India’s TV industry and are currently hosting India’s Best Dancer on Sony Entertainment Television.

Bharti has been part of numerous comedy shows – and is now part of The Kapil Sharma Show Season 2 and Funhit Me Jaari.

Haarsh is a screenwriter and producer and has written the shows Comedy Circus Ke Tansen, Comedy Nights Bachao and Comedy Nights Live. He also wrote dialogues for the film PM Narendra Modi and lyrics for the title track of the film Malang. He has also created, produced and hosted Khatra Khatra Khatra and Hum Tum Aur Quarantine.

The questioning of the couple by the NCB is part of the probe to unravel the entertainment industry-drug cartel nexus.

Among the celebrities questioned earlier include Arjun Rampal, Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan.

The NCB is carrying out two investigations simultaneously - one into the drug angle vis-à-vis Sushant Singh Rajput and the another the larger Bollywood-drug cartel nexus.

Nearly twenty persons, including Sushant’s live-in partner Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, were arrested. Subsequently, Rhea was granted conditional bail by the Bombay High Court.
