The allegations against TN CM EPS are false. We will appeal against the ordering of a CBI probe based on false allegations, he said.

Welcome the Madras High Court verdict: MK Stalin
DMK President and Leader of Opposition MK Stalin tweeted, ‘Welcome the Madras High Court verdict on the Chief Minister’s highway tender allocation scam case to the CBI!. His continuation as Chief Minister is a shame for Tamil Nadu! The CM should resign immediately, if he refuses the Governor should dismiss him!’.
‘What’s wrong in allocating Tender work to a relative’, the CM had argued in the court!. So, I urge that before he tries to destroy evidence, CBI inquiry should start immediately and appropriate action should be taken!, he said.
Apart from investigating the Rs 3120/- Cr. tender, the CBI should investigate corruption charges for the period between 2011-2016 when he was PWD Minister and from 2016 till date!, Mr Stalin said.

Rahul Gandhi on the #Metoo movement
It’s about time everyone learns to treat women with respect and dignity. I’m glad the space for those who don’t, is closing. The truth needs to be told loud and clear in order to bring about change:
Let’s encourage the women …
#metoo campaign should start a debate & make people introspect. Truth should be told to the world. This is a step towards stopping sexual exploitation. Let’s encourage the women to expose the faces behind the mask. Let the perpetrators be put on trial & not the victims:

Six million RTI requests are being received in a year, says President Kovind
In a democracy, there is no such thing as too much information. Information overload is always preferable to information deficit, said President Kovind addressing the 13th annual convention of Central Information Commission, New Delhi.
People have a right to know how they are being governed, how public money is being spent, how public and national resources are being deployed, how public services are being delivered, and how public works and welfare programmes are being carried out.
India has appointed half a million public information officers under the RTI Act. The estimate of requests for information is as high as six million requests a year. These numbers are astounding :
