Union Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan has shot off a letter to the Delhi Police Commissioner alleging that two policemen stood as "mute spectators" while a man was allegedly beaten to death in a case of road rage in central Delhi's Turkman Gate area.
Union Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan today defended the paper which talked about the existence of aeroplanes 7,000 years ago, rejecting criticism in some quarters that the Indian Science Congress focused on the country's ancient science history.
The country is expected to have normal monsoon this year with overall rainfall of 98 per cent, news that will bring smiles to millions of faces of farmers who depend on good rains for a bumper harvest.
Putting to rest speculation
over his "unhappiness" at being shifted from the Rural Development Ministry, Vilasrao Deshmukh took charge as the new Science and Technology Minister, saying "technology
will drive the future".
