Ryan won't say tax cut won't raise deficit
Trump is doing an end around on Ryan and McConnell, and the Speaker of the House was clearly trying to save face. GOP leaders made that "revenue neutral" promise in a campaign manifesto a year ago and many times since.
"We have simply postponed the immersion ritual, which falls on October 1, since it is coinciding with Muharram this year, which is an occasion of mourning for Muslims". She said the decision was made to ensure that both communities do not clash and to avoid any violence.
However, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad said the party will get permission from the court to go ahead with celebrations on Vijaya Dashmi, DNA reported.
Law enforcers will be deployed for five days, starting from the first day on October 26, throughout the Puja mandaps until the immersion of Durga in Bijoya Dashami on October 30. Mamata is against procession with arms even while it is part of "Shastra Pujan". "Those having no inkling about Durga Puja and Kali Puja celebrations in Bengal are spreading all sorts of rumours", she said. "This is not appeasement [of minorities]. It is not our invention", she said, according to India Today. Her comments came a day after the VHP chose to go ahead with its plan of a "shastra pujan (weapon worship)" at private and religious institutions during Bijoya Dashami (Vijaya Dashami) across the state, despite CM Banerjee's instruction to police to thwart any such event.
"What we had said is on the day of ekadashi on October one there will be no immersions".
