Pakistan accused India and the US of being involved in conspiracy to sabotage the Indus Waters Treaty. Pakistan’s foreign minister Khawaja Asif said that India is “also supporting the conspiracies being hatched by Afghanistan against Pakistan.” The World Bank last week had said that as per the clauses of the Indus Waters Treaty, India is permitted to construct hydroelectric power facilities on the tributaries of rivers Jhelum and Chenab with certain restrictions, something which Pakistan opposes.
Six Trinamool Congress legislators, who were axed from the party last month, were formally inducted into the BJP today. MLAs Sudip Roy Barman, Ashish Kumar Saha, Diba Chandra Hrangkhawl, Biswa Bandhu Sen, Pranjit Singh and Dilip Sarkar joined the saffron party at a public meeting in Agartala. These six MLAs had resigned from the Congress and joined the TMC, protesting against the Congress’ electoral alliance with the CPI-M ahead of the 2016 West Bengal assembly election. However, last month, the TMC cut the relations with the MLAs.

Senior congress leader Jairam Ramesh said today that the Congress is facing an “existential crisis”. He said it was wrong for the Congress to think that anti-incumbency will work automatically against the Narendra Modi government in the states being ruled by the BJP in the elections. He pitched for “a collective effort” by the party leaders to “overcome” the challenges it faced from Prime Minister Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.
North Korea today said that it is ready to teach the US a ‘severe lesson’. The North said in a statement to a regional meeting today that it will not put its nuclear programme or its missiles on the negotiating table. Pyongyang called the new UN sanctions “fabricated” and warned there would be “strong follow-up measures” and acts of justice. It also said that the UN abused its authority with the new sanctions.
