JPNN |New Delhi |June 17, 2015 Rahul Gandhi today attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying change cannot be brought by merely making promises and alleged that poor were being deprived of their rights in the name of development. Putting his weight behind sanitation workers from civic bodies agitating for payment of salary dues at Jantar Mantar here, the Congress Vice President sought to link their demands with the "honour" of the poor and said he would stand by them for any cause to put up a united fight. "This is not a fight for Delhi's cleanliness, a fight for the country's cleanliness. This is a fight for your honour. I wanted to bring some of my strength amongst you.... Together we will show what your strength is," he said, offering his unstinted support for the oppressed sections of society. Attacking the Prime Minister and Delhi CM, he said, "Modiji and Kejriwal think that after merely making promises they can bring about a change. No change can be brought by making promises. A change can be brought only after standing here and exerting pressure." Addressing the safai karamcharis for the second time in six days, he said, "You may think I have come to speak for safai karamcharis. These speeches are for the poor farmers, labourers, safai karamcharis and all those weak and oppressed of the entire country." Vowing to fight for the rights of weaker sections, which the party is keen to woo back, Rahul said, "I am standing with you, whereever you want. For one day, 10 days, 50 days or 100 days." He said whereever they wanted, he was available for the smallest of issues - be it their salary, contract labour or their honour. Earlier talking about his Chhattisgarh tour, where he undertook a 'padyatra' for the rights of farmers and tribals, he said while the rich snatched away the land of the poor for earning big money in the name of development, they only paid a paltry amount to them. "When we ask how would this benefit the poor, they have no answers. We do not want such development," he said. "I saw the coal mines in Chhattigarh for the first time in my life. I also interacted with the poor farmers and tribals of the area. I was told that an industrialist earns Rs one crore per day after leasing a mine for 30 years. They earn so much after snatching away the land of poor farmers and tribals for amounts as little as 50,000 or Rs one lakh. "When poor people raise questions, they talk of doing so in the name of development," he said . PTI

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
