Top 3 Political Stories of the Day

A day after BJP president Rajnath Singh held out the olive branch to her, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Saturday ruled out any alliance with the right wing party. Banerjee said,"Some parties want to incite riots in Bengal and divide people, based on religion and language. People of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar who live in Bengal are as much part of the state as any Bengali-speaking person. Banerjee said while addressing a Lok Sabha election rally at Shyambazar in north Kolkata,"We do not play politics of division. We care for people irrespective of their religion, caste or creed. We will never, ever have an alliance with the BJP." Omar Abdullah said there seems to be a connection between Narendra Modi's recent speech criticizing Bangladeshi immigrants in India and the unprovoked killing of Muslims in Assam. Responding to a question on the violence in Assam, the chief minister, without naming Modi, attacked him in his speech saying that if he comes to power then he will initiate action against illegal Bangladeshis residing in this part of the country and pack them off. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has decided against delivering the commencement address at Rutgers University following protests by some faculty and students over her role in the Iraq War. Rice said in a statement Saturday that she informed Rutgers President Robert Barchi that she was declining the invitation. But some students and faculty had protested, staging sit-ins and saying Rice bore some responsibility for the Iraq War as a member of the Bush administration.
