Nonsense. Megasthenes, was a Greek ambassador to the Mauryan court. He wrote a work called "Indika" Ἰνδικά in the 3rd-4th century BCE "India which is in shape quadrilateral, has it's eastern & western side bounded by the great sea" India existed 2200 yrs before the British https://t.co/xcbek33RrC https://t.co/DAKqRMnHIl

Excellent thread, reinforcing the point I made in #AnEraOfDarkness that the idea of India & Indian civilization existed long before the British set foot on Indian soil. @sukarma000 https://t.co/DNMTwmX6hQ

This is Shocking and Alarming. Why did Govt agreed to step back from our own land? We lost 20 of our brave soldiers to protect this land! @ShashiTharoor @mathewmantony @sumedhbgaikwad @ProfCong @INCMumbai @rohanrgupta @Pawankhera @rssurjewala https://t.co/S8isHEBIUe

As MP for Thiruvananthapuram I wish to see this matter dealt w/urgently & the wrongdoers punished. Though i have no connection to ANY aspect of this episode, my Office &I will co-operate fully w/ any investigation, if so desired by the authorities. Keep politics out of it please.

The incident in question is a serious criminal matter involving national interests. This is why I support @chennithala's call for a thorough CBI investigation, including tracing the call records &contacts of the accused to identify all the culprits and their accomplices.

The Consulate was inaugurated in Oct 2016 when I was an opposition MP both at the Centre &in the State. Hence the charge that I was a Minister in theGovt during the time these people were recruited is false. Circulating such lies to tarnish my reputation will invite legal action.

Nonetheless, to those political opportunists seeking to associate me with the scandal, let me make it clear there has never been a single person employed by the Consulate on my recommendation & I have no prior contact w/ any of the accused. I neither had met nor recommended them.

Quoted @ANI

UAE looks forward to fully cooperating with Indian customs authorities to thoroughly investigate the matter&urges stringent legal action against those involved,”says UAE Ambassador to Gulf News on alleged Thiruvananthapuram gold smuggling by an employee at UAE Consulate in Kerala

I strongly support the demand for a thorough investigation into this scandal& stringent punishment for the guilty. I am proud of my role in persuading the UAE to open a Consulate in Thiruvananthapuram and the conduct of a couple of corrupt officials should not vitiate its value. https://t.co/OHaReE5sJU

Quoted @narendramodi_in

China withdraws its forces but I wonder why Indian forces are withdrawing from Indian territory? Why did we retreat? : @narendramodi

I stand with Modiji on this. PM must answer his question! https://t.co/xauOoFONvh

How the publisher @bhatt1619 did his bit organising food supplies for the migrant workers & acquired the "habit of helping" the less fortunate: https://t.co/gml6k5pNhW Great story by a remarkable individual! Congratulations Bhaskar! @penguinrandom

A bilingual (Hindi/English) excerpt from #AnEraOfDarkness published in @shabdankan today, analysing elements of the British colonial claim to have introduced democracy to India [Part 1]: https://t.co/GtyHC2EEao @BharatTiwari

Disengagement is welcome, but means little unless the status quo ante is restored. Otherwise we'll yet again see both sides declare peace, with China having changed the facts on the ground &moved the LAC closer to where it wants. The May-June status cannot become the"new normal".

Excellent piece by @ghoshworld on the ending of the "Gone to Gulf" syndrome, especially in Kerala, as migrants return, remittances dry up & the economy faces a #Covid19 crisis: https://t.co/blRlVew8lY

We are proud of you @ShashiTharoor! 

Thank you @mathewmantony and team @AIPCMaha.

Our @ProfCong members, including myself, are involved in dozens of interventions for our fellow-citizens every week. This one got noticed by a journalist. We should rather pay tribute to all the unsung #ProfessionalsForProgress who just go about doing their work quietly every day https://t.co/ML1UZvvuIv
