Modi will be known for Pakoda, Bhagoda schemes: Navjot Singh Sidhu
 
Congress' Navjot Singh Sidhu took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying, "Modi will be known for two schemes. One is the Pakoda scheme for youngsters, the other is the Bhagoda scheme."
 
The cricketer-turned-politician slammed the ruling BJP government for running away from questions and deflecting people's attention to nationalism and national security issues for political gains. Sidhu said questions are asked to those who are in power as they are the ones answerable.
 
Slamming Modi for failing to create jobs in the country, Sidhu said, while Modi had promised to create 25 lakh jobs, he hasn't even managed to create 2 lakh jobs a year. Sidhu further claimed PM Modi had spent ₹6,000 crore on his own publicity, adding, "PM is no longer Pradhan Mantri but is Prachar Mantri (Publicity Minister)."
 
The EC had last month banned Sidhu from campaigning for 72 hours for his controversial remarks which were seen in violation of the model code of electoral conduct.

Pawan Kalyan criticizes Andhra Pradesh government; calls YCP led AP govt corona friendly

Power Star Pawan Kalyan shared his displeasure over the government of Andhra Pradesh opening the liquor shops. Pawan shared his anguish in a series of tweets mentioned below. Pawan questioned this move of the government saying that the AP government failed to keep its promise to the public.
 
‘YCP led AP GOVT' has become ‘CORONA FRIENDLY’, this Govt came into power with an electoral promise to people that, they will implement ‘COMPLETE LIQUOR BAN’ and of course, they later changed it as ‘PHASE WISE BAN’. Now, during ‘Covid-19’ they have the opportunity to fulfill their election promise of liquor ban, but chosen to open liquor shops instead & the result is this. In this life-threatening Pandemic; all TEMPLES, MASJIDS & CHURCHES are forced to close as social (physical) distancing is not possible. But LIQUOR SHOPS, are ok to be opened, even if they DON’T maintain SOCIAL DISTANCE’???
 
Pawan Kalyan also shared a newspaper article about a tragedy that took place in AP. A woman along with her daughter attempted suicide because her husband abused her physically after getting drunk. Pawan shared the same and wrote, 'It’s painful to see to look at the suicides, due to opening of liquor shops in AP'
 
With the help of his Jana Sena party members, Pawan Kalyan is trying his best to help the needy. Pawan is also extending helping hand and support by providing the relief supplies for those in need.

PV sindhu named ambassador for BWF's 'i am badminton' campaign

Badminton World Federation (BWF) disclosed on 22nd April 2020, that World Champion P V Sindhu is now one of their ambassadors for the 'i am badminton' awareness campaign. During the campaign, players will speak about their adoration for the sport and promote a clean and honest play. Sindhu mentioned that it is key to play a clean and fair game in any sport. She went on to add, “This message starts with one voice. If we as ambassadors can highlight this, then I think this will spread to more players.” Sindhu is just twenty-four years old, and has already got the silver medal in the Olympics for India.
 
Five years ago, the formation of BWF's Integrity Unit began, and to spread awareness for the same, this year’s campaign will be its main focus.
 
Other players who are part of this initiative are: Canada's Michelle Li, the Chinese duo of Zheng Si Wei and Huang Ya Qiong, England's Jack Shephard, Germany's Valeska Knoblauch, Hong Kong's Chan Ho Yuen and Germany's Marc Zwiebler.
 
In a recent statement released by BWF, it’s said that, “It's hoped such a concerted effort will not only raise awareness across the entire badminton landscape but encourage players to be active participants in shaping the integrity of the sport. Every player has the right to compete in a clean and fair sport. Match-fixing, match manipulation, and doping are contrary to the spirit of sport. As an ambassador, we all play an important role in safeguarding the future of badminton.”
 
One of the main goals of the ‘i am badminton’ campaign is to open conversation against match-manipulate. The players can share their experiences and discuss the importance of maintaining integrity, and stand against doping in sports.
