Odisha Health Minister Naba Kisore Das died today hours after he was shot by an assistant sub-inspector. The incident occurred around 1 pm at Gandhi Chowk near Brajarajnagar in Jharsuguda district. The minister was shot in the chest when he was on his way to attend a programme. He was rushed to the Apollo Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

But despite best of efforts, he could not be revived and succumbed to his injuries," the hospital said in a statement.

India have bowled out England for a paltry 68 in the first-ever ICC U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup final on Sunday. The women in blue already have one hand on their trophy after England’s batting once again faltered in a crunch game. Titas Sadhu did the damage early on and picked up the in-form Liberty Heap in the first over and off-spinner Archana Devi also bowled well to dent England right at the start. The rest of the bowlers chipped in with regular breakthroughs as the England batting lineup had no answers. Chasing a meagre 69, India lost Shafali Verman and Shweta Sehrawat early. But G Trisha and Soumya Tiwari built a solid partnership since then.

The 97th edition of Mann Ki Baat, the PM's monthly radio programme, will be aired at 11 am today. Earlier, on December 25, 2022, PM Modi addressed the 96th episode of Mann Ki Baat. In his last Mann Ki Baat of 2022, PM Modi said the country had become the world's fifth-largest economy in 2022.

"India holds the key to securing peace and prosperity for the entire world. India this year holds the presidency of G20. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will preside over the G20 summit in September. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is the chair of G7. So, the close synergy between India and Japan is more important than ever," Suzuki said.

Union Minister for Commerce and Industry, Piyush Goyal on Saturday called for creation of an international network of mentors, investors and entrepreneurs to strengthen the global startup ecosystem. The Minister said that this network must support and inspire startups, act as a team to facilitate exchange of ideas, best practices and funding mechanisms and promote collaborations in Research and Development. The Union minister was addressing the inaugural session of the Inception Meeting of the Startup 20 Engagement Group of G20 in Hyderabad.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday asked the youth to join hands in nation building and ensure that when the country celebrates its centenary year of independence in 2047, India is number one in every field. He also called on the youth to take a resolve for progress in their personal lives and also to contribute towards nation building in some field, in this 75th year of independence. "When we celebrate the centenary year of independence in 2047, in every field this great nation of ours should be number one. To build such a nation, you the youth must join hands on the appeal of PM Modi and contribute in building a great India," Shah said.
