A Delhi court Saturday fixed February 28 next year for hearing a criminal defamation complaint filed by Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam against Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani.

Many political leaders on Sunday reacted to the controversial remark made by Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam yesterday wherein he had said that even PM Narendra Modi would have lost, had he contested LS polls on Congress` ticket.
Amid ongoing stir by AICC secretary Sanjay Nirupam demanding reduction of power tariff in Mumbai, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Saturday said that the government may take a final call on the issue in its state Cabinet meet scheduled on January 29.
Sanjay Nirupam said that Delhi government`s proposal to reserve 90 per cent seats in the government funded colleges of DU for the local students smacked of "anti-migrant mindset" which will harm cosmopolitan character of Delhi.
