"PM caused Rs 40000 crore loss to exchequer": Tweeted Rahul Gandhi

Pradesh Congress president G Parameshwara had recently said that the party would announce its candidates for all the 224 assembly seats in the state in a "single phase" by April 15.

According to the AICC General secretary, 'Congress president Rahul Gandhi has directed to organise a nationwide fast to protect and promote communal harmony between different sections of society across the country on April 9 in all states and district headquarters'.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday slammed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah's remarks equating the opposition partieswith animals, alleging that the "disrespectful statement" reflected his "mentality" that considered Dalits, tribals, minorities and even his own party leaders "worthless".

The Congress leader did not specify the role that his party would play in this coalition but was dismissive of any possibility of a non-Congress, non-BJP third front emerging. Though some of his recent interactions-like the 'NCC' controversy in Mysuru when he took questions from students-may have given BJP some ammunition to target him, but Rahul Gandhi has shown the courage to confront opposition and move on.

Oil climbs with equities, Saudi Arabia hikes crude prices
In addition, the pressure on trade is also exerting tension on the trade dispute between the United States and China. The strength of the USA dollar was a headwind for oil , said Bill Baruch, president of Blue Line Futures in Chicago.

Gandhi was on the sixth leg of campaigning as part of the "Janashirvada Yatra" ahead of the May 12 polls in Karnataka.

However, this is not the first time Rahul Gandhi has attacked PM Modi over Rafale deal.

Taking potshots at RSS, the Congress leader accused it of generating anger and hatred in the society. "It is obvious that we have to come together", Yadav said.

"The natural sort of political environment where there is a little bit of acrimony, but not hatred, needs to be restored", he said.

Syria: Evacuations from besieged, battered areas
In April 2017, under a deal sponsored by regime ally Iran and rebel backer Qatar, almost 11,000 people leave four besieged areas. At least 170,000 people, including civilians and rebel fighters, have also been evacuated out of the area.

Pegging his confidence on Opposition unity, he said far from the BJP winning the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, even PM Modi might lose from Varanasi if Congress, SP and BSP were united against him.

Addressing a rally to mark the BJP's 38th Foundation Day in Mumbai on Friday, Shah likened the opposition parties to "dogs, cats, snakes and mongoose", as they were trying to unite against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the 2019 general elections. Interacting with the workers, Gandhi said if his party comes to power at Centre, it will learn from the current Karnataka government on how to reward sanitation workers.

He said the Congress would give a vision for India to move forward.

Amazon introduces 'Alexa Announcements' feature for Echo speakers
You can also say "Alexa announce " or "Alexa broadcast" followed by what you want to say for a bit of command variety. A recent report from NPR and Edison Research claims 16 percent of US adults have a smart speaker in their house.
