Manchester City rebound to beat Tottenham at Wembley
Raheem Sterling , who, not for the first time, has come under scrutiny, got City's third in the 72nd minute. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino blamed a lacklustre opening for their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City .

Togadia, who has chose to undertake an indefinite fast from Tuesday, said his "disenchantment" with Prime Minister Narendra Modi began right after the 2002 post-Godhra riots.

Mr. Togadia's exit was not unexpected, especially after events in Bhubaneswar, and given his long-standing and public differences with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He also claimed that thousands of Hindus were booked.

"It is very shocking and saddening to see such a grand VHP that we all built to this fantastic level being made to bend, not for Hindu well-being but for individual whims and fancies of some powermongers", said Togadia after congratulating the new team, according to The Indian Express.

Some have noted that much of Ohtani's success so far has come against the lowly Oakland A's, a team that is off to a rocky start. According to FanGraphs, Ohtani had a 1.0 WAR (wins above replacement) last week (0.5 WAR as a pitcher and 0.5 WAR as a hitter).

Togadia had campaigned extensively for BJP but after the election Modi dropped his close aide Gordhan Zadaphia, the minister of state for home, from his council of ministers.

Modi and Togadia, both of whom hail from Gujarat and started out as Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh volunteers, drifted apart in the last decade with Modi's rise.
