As its immediate neighbour, India has one of the highest stakes in developments in Afghanistan: MoS Meenakshi Lekhi
Lekhi said India has contributed for the people of Afghanistan having executed development and welfare projects across all of its 34 provinces
Lekhi, who is here on an official visit, said reform of the Security Council is a key aspect of India's engagement with the UN.
Union Minister of State Meenakshi Lekhi said the owners of the spyware Pegasus as well as Amnesty International have denied the claims made in the reports.
As her comments created a furore, Lekhi later tweeted that her comments were "twisted" and that she withdraws her words if they have hurt anyone.
Asked if the previous government might have bought it, she said these things are "beyond her pay grade".
She is the only elected representative from Delhi, who has been given a ministerial berth in the reshuffle on Wednesday.
Meenakshi Lekhi has taken up various important issues such as permanent commission for women officers in the armed forces as a lawyer.
The Delhi BJP chief said the party will continue with the agitation till a case of criminal conspiracy is registered against the Delhi chief minister.
Addressing a press conference here, BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi alleged that the Delhi government did not increase the number of ICU beds either.
All parliamentarians and staff of the secretariats of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha had undergone mandatory COVID-19 tests before the start of the session.
The BJP leader, who is herself an eminent lawyer, said the Congress has been reduced to 77 seats as compared to 122 earlier, reflecting the "anger" against the Siddaramaiah government.
The AAP today criticised BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi for her comments that rival parties were "selectively" picking the rape cases in Kathua and Unnao to target the Centre.
She claimed that they were being 'selectively' highlighted to target the BJP and said that a similar case of rape and murder of a minor girl in Assam had happened, but it never got the prominence.
Lekhi sought to know whether the government has plans to spread ancient science related to cows and cattle using latest means.
