“Let us begin with top political headlines: Addressing his first public rally in the Valley after leaving the Congress last month, Ghulam Nabi Azad on Sunday said he would not “mislead” people on the issue of Article 370, as only a party with a two-thirds majority in Parliament could ensure its restoration.
For the most part of his 40-minute speech in Baramulla, Azad sought to address the allegations against him – from his alleged proximity with the BJP leadership to his silence on Article 370.
Saying there were “efforts to call me a BJP man”, Azad said he would launch his party “in 10 days” and it would be “azad” (free) and would not “join or merge with any other party”.”
“Unlike many regional parties which have been pointing at the Congress’s retreating footprint across states, RJD leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav said on Sunday that it is still the “largest party” in the Opposition bloc, and others must think “practically” on its relevance.
In an interview with The Indian Express, Yadav said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad would meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi after she returns from abroad, as part of the ongoing efforts to stitch unity among the Opposition parties to take on the BJP in the 2024 general elections.
Defeating the BJP should be the sole “personal ambition” for Opposition leaders, he said.”
“In other news: A three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) U U Lalit will hear the challenge to the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act today The CAA, which aims to give citizenship to migrants belonging to Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi or Christian communities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Pakistan, was notified on December 12, 2019, and came into force on January 10, 2020.
The Act evoked widespread protests in the country as, read with the government’s plan to conduct nationwide National Register of Citizen (NRC) enumeration, it was perceived as an attempt to deprive Muslims of Indian citizenship.

“Meanwhile, the Varanasi District and Sessions Court will deliver its verdict Monday on the maintainability of civil suits challenging the title of the Gyanvapi mosque and the land surrounding it.
Five Hindu women had filed petitions seeking the right to worship Maa Shringar Gauri on the outer wall of the mosque complex located next to the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
On May 20, the Supreme Court, underlining the “complexity of the issues involved in the civil suit”, transferred the Gyanvapi dispute that was pending before the Civil Judge (Senior Division), Varanasi, to the District Judge, Varanasi. While the Hindu side said that the mosque was built on the site of a temple, the Muslim side argued that the mosque was built on Wakf premises.

“The recent accident killing industrialist Cyrus Mistry and a family friend on National Highway-48 have forced the Union government to bring a rule mandating rear seat occupants of any car to wear seatbelts. It has also brought forth a debate on the lacunae in designs. The police have already said that at the spot where Dr Anahita Pandole, who was at the wheel when the fatal accident took place, rammed the car into the edge of a bridge, the three-lane highway narrows into a two-lane bridge and there is another two-lane bridge on the side.
The Indian Express spoke to project director Suraj Singh, 41, of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on the accidents that happen on this stretch, but he denied that there was a design fault.”
“In some sports news: Walking out for his first Grand Slam final at age 19, Carlos Alcaraz bumped fists with fans leaning over a railing along the path leading to the Arthur Ashe Stadium court.
Alcaraz is imbued with boundless enthusiasm and energy, not to mention skill, speed, stamina and sangfroid. And now he’s a U.S. Open champion and the No. 1 player in men’s tennis.
, Alcaraz beat Casper Ruud 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (1), 6-3 on Sunday to both earn the trophy at Flushing Meadows and become the youngest man to lead the ATP rankings.”
“And now the latest update on Russia-Ukraine War: Ukraine accused Russian forces of attacking civilian infrastructure in response to a rapid weekend offensive by Ukrainian troops that drove Russia to abandon its main bastion in the Kharkiv region.
Ukrainian officials said the targets of the retaliatory attacks included water facilities and a thermal power station in Kharkiv, and that they caused widespread blackouts.
“No military facilities, the goal is to deprive people of light & heat,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote on Twitter late on Sunday. Moscow denies its forces deliberately target civilians.

“Lastly, China’s third-highest leader Li Zhanshu will arrive in Nepal on Monday, officials said, in the third high-level visit to Nepal since foreign minister Wang Yi’s trip in March.
Although officials are tight-lipped about the agenda of Li’s visit, it comes amid concerns in Beijing over the US’ rising influence in Nepal where a general election is just weeks away.
“So far we know he is going to pay a courtesy call on President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba…” Foreign Ministry sources told The Indian Express. ”
