Be responsible, Venkaiah tells MPs

Addressing the valedictory session of the National Legislators’ Conference here, Mr. Naidu said there was no place for banners, placards or shouting in the House. “One week of Rajya Sabha was lost. Who is the loser? Someone in the Opposition may think the government is a loser, the government may think the Opposition is loser. But it is the country and the people who lose out. How much money they have spent, how much confidence they have put in us, in our system. These disruptions will not help us,” Mr. Naidu said.

Important part of the news given above. Statements given by President, PM or Vice-President are important. But no need to go through the complete article.

 

Saving Ghouta

The agreement reached between armed groups in Eastern Ghouta and a UN delegation to evacuate some militants from the besieged enclave is the first major concession the rebels have made since Syrian government attacks began a month ago. Under the deal, the Jaish al-Islam, the main rebel group, will evacuate militants linked to the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), formerly an al-Qaeda front, from Ghouta on the outskirts of Damascus.

The Op-Ed talks about Syrian crisis. As it does not directly related to India’s foreign policy, it is not important from the UPSC’s point of view.
