New Delhi [India]November 19 (ANI): After India’s loss in the ICC World Cup final against Australia, Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra took a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, saying the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had launched a raid in Residence of Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
“Breaking news: Directorate of Security raids Australian Prime Minister’s residence,” Moitra, who has come under fire for the “cash for information” allegations, said in a post on X.
Opposition parties often accuse the BJP of misusing central investigative agencies like the DSP to target its political opponents.
“In other news: Ahmedabad stadium renamed – India loses World Cup final at Jawaharlal Nehru Cricket Stadium,” Moitra added in her post.
Meanwhile, BSP MP Danish Ali said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not have announced his arrival at the stadium in advance, adding that he should stay away from such big occasions.
In a post on X, Danish Ali said: “We were also close to victory, but our players missed the target due to excessive psychological pressure. Prime Minister Modi also did not have to announce his arrival at the stadium. It is better for the country to do so.” “Stay away from such events and watch the performances of athletes and scientists on TV.”
Former ISRO chief K Sivan was left frustrated after the space agency lost contact with the Chandrayaan 2 lander ‘Vikram’ as it began its descent to the moon, and despite words of motivation by Prime Minister Modi, he could not hold back his tears.
Prime Minister Modi visited the ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru to witness the final descent of Chandrayaan 2 to the lunar South Pole on September 7, 2019.
Notably, Chandrayaan-3 was scheduled a day after the failure of Chandrayaan-2 and its approval came immediately from Prime Minister Modi.
