Nadda’s veiled attack on Lalu

Gaya (Bihar) [India], October 11 (ANI): In a veiled jibe at former chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav and his Mahagathbandhan with the Congress, BJP national president Jagat Prakash Nadda on Sunday said one who entered politics holding the hands of Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan — who led a movement against the Congress — and went on to become chief minister, was today siding with the very party.

“The leader who became a politician and CM with the blessings of Jayaprakash Narayan — the man who formed Janata Party by sidelining the Congress — was now hugging the very party,” Nadda said without naming Yadav while addressing his first election rally in poll-bound Bihar’s Gaya on Sunday.

He added those who are now around 50-60 years of age might’ve witnessed the JP movement. “For the first time in independent India, they might have heard a voice and political ideology different from that

If You’re Attacked in a Small Bathroom – Self Defense for Bathroom Attack

I recently read a very disturbing article about a young woman who was sexually assaulted in an airplane bathroom. She was attacked on a red eye flight, by a drunk man who sat in the seat next to her on the plane.
