RAM, a myth?
January 22, 2024, will be a milestone day for the Sanatanis, as on this very day Ram Mandir in Ayodhya will be opened. The entire nation is waiting for this auspicious day with bated breath. People from all over the globe with Sanatan faith are making a beeline to be in Ayodhya on that particular day. The whole of Ayodhya and its neighbouring areas are wearing a festive look. Invitation letters in this regard have been sent to many VVIPs, cutting across all political lines, to attend this auspicious day. Very surprisingly, Congress leaders, namely Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Mallikarjun Kharge, along with their I.N.D.I.A. ally SP, have declined the invitation due to reasons best known to all.
We all know that in 1951, the then Prime Minister Nehru too declined to attend the Pratistha divas of the Somnath temple in Gujarat. The then-President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, however, graced the occasion. According to Congress, Lord Ram is a myth, and accordingly, they submitted an affidavit before the Supreme Court some time ago. Going by the present trend in a nation’s politics, who can guarantee that by tomorrow, the Congress and their above-mentioned leaders will not become a myth. Let's wait and see.

More buses needed on Hatigaon route
A city bus is meant for public transport. It helps people go from one place to another conveniently. The bus no. 34 plies from Hatigaon to Amingaon, which covers a long distance and has important stops in the city, but unfortunately, the residents of Hatigaon area, are facing an enormous problem as the frequency of the mentioned bus is very low whereas there are plenty of buses available for Panjabari, Narengi, etc. The bus no. 34 caters to students, office-goers, daily labourers, etc. There is no suitable and economical alternative for the students. But the buses for Hatigaon are very few. It causes overcrowding, longer wait times, and significant delays in the daily commute. The authorities should look into this matter and do the needful to overcome this daily hindrance, and they should also provide more buses for Hatigaon. Hatigaon is one of the biggest residential areas, and most of the workforce resides in Hatigaon. Hence, we request the authority to take proper measures to reduce this constraint.
