On Wednesday 18th March, while debating in the Lok Sabha on supplementary demands for grants for 2019-20 for J&K, Congress MP Manish Tewari rebuked the government's decision to abrogate Article 370 and split Jammu and Kashmir into separate union territories. Criticising the Government's decisions on several restrictions imposed in the region and citing data of 'Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry', he said there was a loss of USD 2.4 billion and just the agriculture sector alone has lost Rs 10,000 crore, in last seven months.

He further urged the Government to listen to the voice of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

"There is no economic progress if there is no peace. The decisions of August 5th and 6th have disrupted social amity. Open your years and listen to the voice of Jammu and Kashmir. A serious situation is developing and the budget of Rs 1 lakh crore will not have an impact,” he said.

Stranded in Iran without essentials, Tamil fishermen’s desperate cry for help

More than 800 Tamil fishermen are trapped in Iran following the Corona virus outbreak. The fishermen have sent over 20 SOS videos, imploring the Indian government to rescue them. It has been 25 days since their plea, the Indian authorities are yet to respond. Even as their basic resources including water and food dwindle each day, the fishermen continue to survive despite all odds. Now, the families of the fishermen have also joined in the appeal to demand help from authorities, hoping someone takes notice of their cries before it is too late.
