Starting in India, the Congress party will assemble its Working Committee on June 8 to deliberate on strategies following the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. The meeting, chaired by party president Mallikarjun Kharge, will take place at the Congress headquarters.

Back in India, the Delhi government has directed all hospitals within the city to conduct comprehensive fire safety audits. By June 8, these hospitals must submit compliance reports to the state health department. This directive stems from a meeting convened by Health Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj, who emphasized the need for enhanced preparedness in hospitals after a tragic incident at a neo-natal care center claimed the lives of six newborns.

Moving on to the Maratha quota agitation, activist Manoj Jarange has announced the organization of a rally on June 8 to advocate for the Maratha community’s demands. The rally, scheduled to take place in Narayangad, Beed district, aims to press for reservation opportunities.

In response to the scorching heatwave in Bihar, the government has ordered the closure of all private and government schools, coaching institutes, and anganwadi centers until June 8.

Shifting focus to international affairs once more, pro-Palestinian activists are set to gather near the White House for a weekend protest. Their primary demands include an end to the conflict in Gaza and a cessation of US support for Israel. The demonstration has prompted heightened security measures, including the installation of anti-scale fencing.

Finally, Israel’s war cabinet minister, Benny Gantz, has issued an ultimatum to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Gantz has threatened to resign unless a six-point plan for Gaza is formulated and approved by June 8. This ultimatum comes amidst the escalating Israel-Hamas conflict.

Rounding out the day’s significant events, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that IndiGo will host the 81st IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in Delhi, India, from June 8-10, 2025.
