The US resolution against Sri Lanka over alleged human rights violations has been passed at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva with 25 countries, including India,favouring the resolution while 13 against(included Pakistan) and 8 abstained from voting (includes Japan) !
While,Sri Lanka claims the war to finish Tamil terrorism and issues related to it are its internal matters and that US has no rights to intervene, India’s voting against Sri Lanka is bound to tense relation with its small yet strategically placed neighbour(which shares healthy relation with China and Pakistan) . Interestingly,Pakistan voted in favour of Sri Lanka.
UNHRC: India votes against Sri Lanka
Looks like President Pranab Mukherjee is keen on taking prompt decisions on pending mercy pleas.He has sought Union Home Ministry’s opinion on eight other pending mercy petitions.
Who is he trying to impress ? 😉
After Kasab and Guru who is next ?
Abhijit Mukherjee,Son of President of India and Congress MP had created controversy making a remark on Delhi Gangrape protesters.He claimed that the women protesting did not look like students instead looked ‘dented-painted’.Smelling intense criticism and chaos he seeked unconditional apology and Congress declared no action against him as he had already apologized for his remarks.
No action by Congress against Abhijit Mukherjee’s sexist remark on protesters of Delhi gangrape
More than his and Congress’ image,it is his father,President of India-Pranab Mukherjee’s image which Abhijit Mukherjee has hampered with his irresponsible statement on protesters of ‘Delhi gang rape’.
Sometimes back, a busy politician with real big political jobs assigned to him,may be feeling a little different.President’s Of India are not involved in active day to day politics. They are normally heard attending inaugurations,making foreign trips,posing with kids for newspapers,making a speech on Republic Day and at the most accepting or rejecting mercy pleas ! How is Pranab Da spending time as a President Of India ? 🙂
