The notice to the Indian Women’s Press Corps to vacate its premises by July-end is yet another indicator of the media’s dispensability in Modi’s New India. The closure of the IWPC at 5 Windsor Place on Ashoka Road, a 27-year old institution, would mean one less forum where journalists can engage with people in public life. It would also be a major blow for many young women scribes who require a central place to operate from since their offices have mostly relocated to the faraway National Capital Region. Nearly two decades ago, when the IWPC premises’ lease renewal seemed in jeopardy, Parliament passed a resolution backed by all parties, including the BJP , expressing solidarity with the institution and requesting that the IWPC be allowed to retain the premises as it had an important role in our democracy.

In response to Union Home Minister Amit Shah's remark on Congress using ‘Ram Janambhoomi’ foundation day for protest to promote their "appeasement politics", MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Saturday said that the BJP cannot tolerate their protest, and "that's why they're trying to divert the attention of common people by resorting to their only weapon 'Ram'," news agency ANI reported. Earlier on Friday, Amit Shah attacked the Congress, saying the party picked August 5 for a protest and that its leaders were dressed in black because they "wanted to give a subtle message to further promote their appeasement politics." “I can’t understand why they protested today.
