Syrian envoy to India says his country
equipped to counter attacks
New Delhi, September 04 (ANI): Syrian Ambassador to India Raid Kamel Abbas asserted his country
was ready to counter attacks. US President Barack Obama had declared that the United States, which has five cruise-missile equipped destroyers in the region, was in the planning process for a
"limited, narrow" military action against Syria. Commenting on
the developments, Abbas said the US was a habitual liar and Washington’s tactics would not work against Syria. Indian Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid had declared that New Delhi would keep a close watch on the developing crisis in
Syria as there was a possibility of a potential US military strike. On this aspect, Abbas said
Syria was content with India’s stand on the issue and urged New Delhi to help fight American aggression.

New Delhi, September 4 (ANI): BJP leader Kirti Azad today
said the resignation of IPS officer DG Vanzara was a clear case of

other similar cases, resigned on Tuesday blaming Gujarat Chief Narendra Modi and his aide Amit Shah. In his 10-page resignation letter to the Additional Chief Secretary of
home department, the suspended IPS officer renounced all the post-retirement benefits. Vanzara
said Modi and Shah did not protect Gujarat's policemen. He also alleged that Shah used the police machinery for political mileage and literally ruled the state.
He also claimed that Shah and Modi colluded to keep all police officers, accused of involvement in fake encounter cases, in jail to protect themselves.
