Sibal had said that people in Bihar and where by-polls were held do not consider Congress to be "an effective alternative"

India and China are engaged through the established military and diplomatic channels to resolve the current border standoff in Ladakh.

At least 47 people were killed and around 200 people sustained serious injuries in the violence that hit North-East Delhi last week.

Modi's remarks come after two new cases of COVID-19 were reported from India on Monday, one each from Delhi and Telangana. Both the patients are stable and being closely monitored, the ministry of health and family welfare said.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said that the party is demanding a discussion on the Delhi violence and the Union Home Minister Amit Shah's resignation.

"We know that he sings and dances really well but elections are something way more different than that. He can daydream...that's his fundamental right but it will still be a dream. BJP won't win in Delhi Assembly polls," Chowdhury told ANI.

The Congress leader also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for criticising Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti in Parliament on Thursday and added, "You cannot govern Kashmir like this,"

While several Congress leaders, including Karti Chidambaram and BK Hariprasad, have condemned Hegde's remark, BJP leaders too have distanced themselves from it.

In a veiled remark towards the Gandhi family, Mahajan said in Lok Sabha, "Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is himself nirbal (powerless) for only standing up for a woman of a family and fighting for her honour and security."

"Not so much talking as woman, I am Nirmala and will remain so ... We will remain Sabla. In our party, all are Sabla," Nirmala said adding that there was no question of being 'Nirbala'.
