Opposition leaders fume over Amit Shah's 'dog, cat' remark, call it 'shameful'

Training a gun at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Shah said, "When we lost two Lok Sabha seats recently Rahul Gandhi distributed candies".

Referring to the no-confidence motion by BJP's old ally Telugu Desam Party (TDP) over the issue of special status to Andhra Pradesh, Mayawati also asserted that the BJP is isolated by its allies because of its overconfidence and ego.

Later, Shah said his intention was not to equate Opposition parties to animals.

"The countdown for 2019 (polls) has begun". All the opposition parties are continuously calling for unity to defeat the BJP. Only a 'vatvriksha (banyan tree) survives and snakes, mongoose, dogs, cats and other animals climb to save themselves from the rising waters. "Today, Parliament was adjourned sine die", BJP president Amit Shah said.

It added that the army "will not allow the region to become a combat zone" and that it viewed the incident with "great severity". The demonstrations turned violent after Israeli forces used tear gas and live fire against crowds of protesters.

"They are now trying spread lies that the BJP diluted the SC/ST Act and claim we want to do away with the reservation system".

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said Shah considers his political opponents as "dogs and cats" and that is due to arrogance that has reached his head.

Targeting Gandhi and his party, Shah said it was four generations of the Congress that need to give explanations to the country. Shah said to the roughly three lakh BJP workers that the reservation policy was "a party commitment". We are privileged to receive the blessings of people of all age groups, across all sections of society. Additionally, 50,000 private buses and vehicles ushered in more BJP supporters.

She added: "Shah's statement is enough to prove how low the party has fallen under the leadership of the Guru [Narendra Modi] and the Chela [Amit Shah]". "So when the Uri terror attack (2016) happened, Modi avenged it withing matter of days by sending soldiers across Pakistan for surgical strikes", said Shah. He said: "Hamari hardik iccha hain ki woh saath mein rahein (It is our heartfelt wish that they stay with us)".

Spotify had a wimpy market listing, and that's okay
In a direct listing , a company doesn't raise any money by issuing new shares, which is unusual for a first public offering. Perhaps that's a good starting point for the Spotify share to attract a broad group of investors domestically.

Shah, who was welcomed by means of a huge bike rally organised by Mumbai's youth, went to the BKC and held a meeting with core committee members of the BJP state unit.

When regular commuters questioned them, they got into an argument with them, saying the AC train had not been there during the Congress government and that it was started during BJP's rule, refusing to budge.

However, commuters faced a tough time during the morning rush hour as party workers coming in for the rally by road contributed to massive traffic snarls.
