In truth, it doesn’t quite live up to that initial heady statement, but this stylish visual novel is still one hell of a ride all the same.

How can you protest in anticipation that NRC will be linked to CAA? As far as NPR is concerned, me and my father Ram Vilas Paswan had met Home Minister Amit Shah and he said categorically that none of the information that NPR form will ask is mandatory. And baseless rumour is floated that if a citizen doesn't furnish details he or she will be put in “doubtful” list. … [Read more...] about Courts just don’t realise the significance of reservation to SC/ST communities: Chirag Paswan
