OpIndia Evening Dispatch: Sunday, 27th January 2019

A quick round up of things that made it to news today

In the hustle and bustle of the day, it is only natural to miss some of the biggest developments that impact the nation. The OpIndia Evening Dispatch will catch you up on the day’s event even if you have been busy thus far.

Here is what made it to news today:

1. Chhattisgarh: CM Bhupesh Baghel disrespects Indian National Flag by unfurling a pre-1947 Congress flag during Republic Day celebrations

Before going for the Republic Day celebration at Police Parade ground, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel went to Congress headquarters and hoisted the pre-Independence era flag instead of the Tricolour. Party comes before the country for Congress loyalists.

2. Priyanka Gandhi as Rani Lakshmibai

Congress supporters continue their sycophant behaviour as photoshopped pictures of Priyanka Gandhi as Rani Lakshmibai came up in Gorakhpur. Congress workers are now demanding she contests elections from Gorakhpur, a Lok Sabha seat previously held by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

3. BJP leader Subramanian Swamy alleges Priyanka Gandhi is bipolar, beats up people

Days after Priyanka Gandhi’s formal induction into politics, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy alleged that she is bipolar and has a violent streak. He added that general public at large should know that about Priyanka.

4. Akshay Kumar or ‘The Wire’ co-founder: Who is more suitable to comment on nationalism? Vote:

A debate was triggered on Twitter after film actor Akshay Kumar wished people for Republic Day. The Wire journalist Rohini Singh was of the opinion that ‘Canadian citizen’ Akshay Kumar was using Republic Day ‘of a nation he does not belong to’ for ‘peddling’ his film. Twitter users were happy to remind her that the propaganda website she writes for is run by an American citizen, Siddharth Varadarajan. Take the poll here and let us know who is more suitable to speak about nationalism? ‘Canadian’ Akshay Kumar or American Siddharth Varadarajan?

5. Nambi Narayanan: A story you wish was a Bollywood potboiler, but unfortunately it isn’t

ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan got tangled into a web of politics when in the 1990s he was dragged into a politico-bureaucratic nexus which cost him and India years of advancement in space science. Read here about how the man who was once accused of espionage was awarded the Padma Bhushan yesterday.
