Karnataka Deputy CM Parameshwara was a protege of Rajiv Gandhi

The Dalit face of the Congress in Karnataka and its state unit chief G Parameshwara has finally made it to the deputy chief minister’s post, for which he has been a contender for too long.The longest-serving state state party president since October 2010, Parameshwara has remained a hardcore loyalist of the party ever since his political debut through the Congress. An educationist born into a well-to-do family, articulate, soft-spoken and suave, Parameshwara had tried his hand in diversified fields before rising to prominence in politics. Having obtained a PhD in plant physiology from Waite Agriculture Research Centre of the University of Adelaide, he became the administrative officer of the Sri Siddhartha Institute of Technology, a group of institutions his family had built.He did his B.Sc and M.Sc in Agriculture from University of Agriculture Sciences in Bengaluru. His meeting with Rajiv Gandhi in 1989 changed his fortunes. Parameshwara had gone to meet Gandhi in New Delhi when the latter realised the potential in him and invited him to join politics. He was then made joint secretary of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee. Parameshwara always remained unflinching in his loyalty to the Congress, even during the tumultuous phase in the party.Also readWatch: Mamata Banerjee loses cool after being forced to walk, slams Karnataka DGP He took the plunge into the electoral politics in 1989 when he defeated his nearest rival from Janata Dal in Madhugiri. To his credit, he had defeated his nearest rival by a huge margin of 55,802 votes from Madhugiri during the 1999 assembly elections. His ministerial debut started from 1999 when he served as Minister of State (independent charge) for Higher Education and science and technology in the S M Krishna cabinet. Three years later, he was elevated to cabinet rank.In December 2003, he was inducted as minister of information and publicity. He changed his constituency in 2008 and fought elections from Koratagere in Tumakuru district. A five-time MLA, Parameshwara had lost the 2013 assembly polls, when he was KPCC president. He was a contender for the chief minister’s post then and despite losing the elections, was made an MLC and a minister in the Siddaramaiah government.He had often made no secret of being a contender for the deputy chief minister’s post.Also readFrom kingmaker to king, all you need to know about Karnataka CM HD KumaraswamyIn the recently concluded assembly election, he won from Koratagere again. Aware of the bumpy roads ahead as the Congress-JDS coalition takes over the state administration, Parameshwara has said that difficult times are ahead for the coalition, but there was a need to stop the BJP from coming to power in the southern state. He had said he understood the sentiments of many who were averse to a tie-up between the Congress and the JDS, but the Congress had lent support to Gowda’s party to keep communal forces away from power.

Maldives more inclined towards China: Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba

Maldives is a “challenge” for India at the moment as its current government is more inclined towards China, Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba said today, indicating that the ties between New Delhi and Male are yet to reach a level of normalcy.Lanba, however, added that patrolling of the Maldives Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) by the Indian Navy has again commenced and that India would continue to work with the government of the archipelago nation.He also said there is no necessity to get a military dimension to the Quad involving India, the US, Australia and Japan.”Maldives is a challenge at the moment. The present government in Maldives is more inclined towards China. The constitution has been tweaked and some islands have been given to the Chinese for development. There is no news at the moment of any listening post in the Maldives. There is some development that is going on. We will have to wait and watch,” Lanba said in response to a question at an event at the Vivekananda Foundation International.India’s ties with Maldives nose-dived after it criticised the Abdulla Yameen government for imposing a 45-day emergency in the archipelago nation earlier this year.During the crisis, India had ignored calls for military intervention from the opposition parties in the island nation.The influence of China on Maldives, an island nation in the Indian ocean, considered a backyard of India, has been growing and it is seen as a concern in New Delhi.Maldives neither participated in the multi-national ‘MILAN’ naval conclave, a congregation of littoral navies conducted biennially by the Indian Navy at the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which was held in mid-March this year nor did its defence minister lead his country’s delegation to take part in the DefExpo2018.”We (India) have an EEZ patrolling (exercise) that we regularly do with Maldives. We just finished one (exercise) last week. The one (exercise) previously held had been called off by the Maldivian government, but that has been recommenced. We continue to train their personnel. We just finished a special forces training camp. We will continue to work with the Maldivian government,” Lanba said.Responding to another question on the Quad, the Navy chief said it was a discussion forum for international good order and peace and following the norms of the United Nations Convention on the Law Of the Sea (UNCLOS).”We are not going down that route. I don’t think there is a necessity to get a military dimension to the Quad,” he said.The Quad is also seen as a move to counter China in the Indo-Pacific region where Beijing has been trying to spread its influence.The meeting was held in Manila in November last year, which was attended by leaders of the four countries.Lanba said the rapid growth of the Chinese navy is “apparent” and it is also in collusion with other “adversaries” in the Indian Ocean region.”Deployment of Chinese naval ships have increased manifold since October 2008 and new bases have been set up,” he said citing the example of the Djibouti naval base in Africa.On a question on deployment of tactical nuclear weapons at sea by Pakistan, the Navy chief said there is no such information, but Islamabad is in the process of developing a cruise missile which it hopes to fit on a submarine that is being built in China.The missile, he said, is also being built with the help of Chinese technology.He said the Indian Navy is “well-poised” for handling any exigency and the strategic roadmap the force follows keeps it ready for “assuring peace and winning wars should that become inevitable”.Lanba said India and Bangladesh will hold its first coordinated patrol next month.Responding to a question on whether he had any interaction with former Navy official Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani court for alleged spying, in his career.”I don’t have access to Kulbhushan Jadhav. Unfortunately, in my service career, we have not worked together. The officer’s mother and wife had met up with him. That was the first access we gained of Kulbhushan Jadhav. What we came to know that he is hail and hearty and up and about,” Lanba said.Pakistan permitted a meeting between Jadhav and his mother and wife at Islamabad in December last year.

Delhi HC rebukes JNU for not providing safe environ for women students

The Delhi High Court today rebuked the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for not taking constructive steps to provide safe working environment for women who have levelled sexual harassment charges against a professor.”I thought you were taking constructive measures to provide a safe environment to them. You (JNU) said on the last date that you were setting up a fact-finding committee which will hear them.”I see a complete turn around as you are saying you do not know who the eight students are and do not call them (to be heard before the committee),” Justice Rajiv Shakdher said and asked the varsity “Do you have the power to sanitise the environment?” The observation by the court came after it perused a report of the fact-finding committee (FFC) set up by JNU to probe the alleged misconduct by the professor.The court also said the report contained no findings and the panel has not even called the eight complainants or Prof Atul Kumar Johri.It observed it had expected the university to put in place a mechanism for providing a safe environment to the women, but the committee’s report was silent on the issue. JNU, in its defense, said the FFC cannot go into the issues of alleged misconduct by the professor or the complaints of sexual harassment as these aspects will be examined by the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) according to the central civil services rules.It also claimed that the ICC was unable to take up either of the two aspects as the complainants were refusing to appear before it.Advocate Vrinda Grover, appearing for the complainant women students, told the court that her clients did not have any confidence in the ICC in view of the varsity’s conduct towards them till now.She said that despite the high court’s May 2 order directing that Johri should not visit or use laboratory no. 409 of the Department of Life Sciences where the students work, it is still under his control and he has access to it. Insupport of her claim, she showed emails indicating that Johri still had keys to the lab.Grover also said two of her clients who are pursuing Ph.D and wanted change in their supervisors, have received no communication on the aspect from the varsity.JNU said both students have been assigned three supervisors each, but it was yet to find someone to sign their thesis.Apart from the varsity and the complainants, the court also heard the stand of Johri, whose lawyer contended that his client as well as his family were being targetted by some students who have pasted posters on his house and vehicle.The lawyer also said his client had only sent an e-mail to certain students, including one of the complainants, warning them against their irregular attendance pattern.Johri has also claimed that some of the complainant students were asked to work harder and, in retaliation, they had levelled the allegations against him.The court said it was not saying who was right, but in his “best interest”, it would be helpful if he keeps away from the varsity campus.However, Johri’s lawyer said his wife and daughters stay in the campus so it would not be possible for him to stay away.After hearing all the parties, the court said it will issue directions on May 29.The court was hearing a petition filed by several women students seeking suspension of the professor, against whom eight FIRs have been lodged alleging sexual harassment, and to restrain him from entering the campus. The plea has sought the provision of a safe working environment to the students.The court had on April 25, directed the JNU to treat the representations of women students as complaints and initiate a probe against the professor on charges of sexual harassment, while questioning the varsity for not taking any steps in the matter.Students, professors and women rights organisations have been demanding his arrest, after several students had accused him of sexual harassment.

Patnaik skips Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in, BJD maintains equal distance from Cong, BJP

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik did not attend the swearing-in of HD Kumaraswamy as the chief minister of Karnataka today as the BJD maintains an equal distance from the Congress and the BJP, a party leader said.Patnaik, who is the BJD president, did not attend the swearing-in in Bengaluru.”It is obvious that the BJD, a purely regional outfit, has nothing to do with the national parties like the Congress and the BJP,” BJD general secretary Arun Kumar Sahoo said. Congress president Rahul Gandhi, his mother and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, N Chandrababu Naidu, and Pinarayi Vijayan, her counterparts in Andhra Pradesh, and Kerala respectively, were present at the event. The BJP boycotted the ceremony and observed a “Black Day”, holding statewide protests against the new coalition government, which it called “unholy”.On Patnaik not attending the event, Sahoo said, “For the last 18 years, the chief minister has not attended the swearing-in ceremonies in any other state.” “He is also busy with the second phase of ‘Save Mahanadi’ campaign launched by the BJD as well as the state government’s Ama Gaon Ama Bikas programme,” he said. Sahoo avoided questions on whether any representative was sent to the swearing-in function.BJD sources said though Patnaik maintained the “best of relationships” with former prime minister H D Deve Gowda’s family, he preferred to avoid Kumarswamy’s swearing-in so that he was not seen in the function along with Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. The recent statements by two senior Congress leaders Bhakta Charan Das and Sarat Rout also put Patnaik in a fix. The two had publicly said that the Congress was not averse to joining hands with the BJD to keep the BJP out of the power in Odisha, where state assembly polls are due next year.

Palghar bypoll: Yogi Adityanath slams Shiv Sena

India can progress only under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said here today.At a campaign rally for the May 28 Palghar Lok Sabha bypoll here, Adityanath also targeted the BJP’s bickering alliance partner, Shiv Sena, for “poking its nose” in the internal affairs of the saffron party by fielding former MP, late Chintaman Wanaga’s son in the bypoll. “This bypoll will not impact the stability of the government, but will definitely give a message that the country can progress only under Modi’s leadership,” he said. His remarks came hours after JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy was sworn-in as the Karnataka chief minister at a grand ceremony, which was attended by a galaxy of top leaders and regional satraps. “I have come here to appeal to you to vote for the BJP, whose government under Modi’s leadership is taking India on the path of progress. The symbol of this progress can only be lotus (BJP’s poll symbol) and nothing else,” Adityanath said.He alleged that there was an attempt to create an atmosphere against the BJP. The Uttar Pradesh chief minister took potshots at the Shiv Sena for fielding Wanaga’s son in the Palghar bypoll.”They (Sena) broke up Wanaga’s family and forced him (the late BJP MP’s son) to contest the bypoll,” he alleged. Stating that it was an internal matter of the BJP, Adityanath said the saffron party would have protected the respect of the Wanaga family. “By god’s grace, the Congress has been decimated in the country. The enemies of development and good governance will also meet the same fate,” he added.Without naming Vasai legislator Hitendra Thakur, the BJP leader said, “I appeal to the voters not to be afraid of anyone and vote fearlessly. If the law-and-order situation in Uttar Pradesh can improve, then the goondaism in Virar-Palghar can also be checked.”

Children bear brunt of Pak hostility in J&K: 10-year-old killed, 2-year-old battles splinter injuries

Thirteen-year-old Shivpaul was playing with his younger brother Krishan Lal Sharma when a Pakistani mortar shell exploded inside their house in Samba sector of Jammu and Kashmir.Recuperating at the Government Medical College (GMC) hospital here Shivpaul asks only one question – about the well being of his brother. Ten-year-old Krishan Lal Sharma, however, was not as fortunate as his elder sibling. He died on the spot.Their mother Champa was being treated at a local hospital.In the GMC hospital emergency ward, close to where Shivpaul was recovering, 21-year-old Pooja, wife of an Army jawan, and her two-year-old son too were battling splinter injuries.They were preparing to flee their home for safety when a shell tore through the roof and exploded in their bed room in the early hours, she said. Her daughter too was injured in the blast, Pooja added.Eleven seriously injured patients were brought to the GMC hospital since this morning from different sectors as heavy shelling by Pakistani Rangers along the International Border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts entered the ninth day.Five persons including the 10-year-old Sharma were killed in the shelling today, raising the death toll in the ongoing skirmishes to twelve including two BSF jawans and an eight-month-old boy.The state has witnessed a spurt in Pakistani shelling and firing along the IB and the Line of Control (LoC). Over 700 such incidents were reported this year, which have left more than 44 people, including 18 security personnel, dead and scores injured. In another special ward, 50-year-old Santosh Kumari, resident of Londi village of Hiranagar sector of Kathua district, was mourning the loss of her husband.It was around 5.30 am when a shell landed at our house and exploded with a big bang, critically injuring Devi, her husband Rampaul Sharma and two others besides killing several bovines. We immediately shifted them to a local hospital and after first aid they were brought here. However, Rampaul was declared brought dead, Ashok Kumar Sharma, younger brother of the deceased, told PTI.A retired Army jawan, Ashok Kumar Sharma, criticised the central government for its “failure to ensure peace on the borders” and said the much-publicised underground bunkers were nothing but an eye-wash.Where are the promised bunkers? Our village has not even a single community bunker leave aside the individual bunkers for each family, he said.The body of his brother was still lying in the hospital as the family could not decide whether to carry it back home for cremation or wait as heavy shelling was still on.Surinder Singh (45), a resident of Naibasti area of Suchetgarh, said he was moving his cattle out of the firing zone when a shell exploded killing a friend and injuring him.Singh received multiple splinter injuries in the upper parts of the body and was being attended by his brother, a soldier, and uncle.BJP MLA Kuldeep Raj who had come to see the injured had to face tough questions from the border residents.The education of our children is hit due to closure of schools owing to cross-border firing. We are unable to tend our land properly, attend our cattle and now even we are unable to get brides for our sons as people are reluctant to marry their daughters in our homes due to the fear of Pakistani firing, Darshan Lal, another border resident, said.Politicians are only visible when they have to seek votes, he claimed adding nobody cares whether we live or die .Subhash Chander, who was attending Surinder Singh, said the frequent shelling had made their lives miserable.We have witnessed both sides observing the ceasefire in November 2003 and lived a peaceful life for many years before the situation turned ugly especially after 2014, he said.He said the border residents were unable to perform day to day activities due to the lurking threat of Pakistan shelling.The government also backtracked from the promised piece of land at safer places for the border residents. They are responding to Pakistani shelling more fiercely but how is this an answer to our problems. Either they should go for ceasefire or launch an all out attack, Chander said.Amid the surcharged atmosphere inside the emergency ward, 22-year-old Sunny of Satowali village, who had just been brought by friends, wept inconsolably.He has splinter injuries in the arms. But his real pain is that he lost his father Raghaveer Singh, an employee in public health engineering department, in the shelling, one of his friends said.Medical Superintendent Dara Singh said over 50 shelling victims had arrived in the hospital over the past one week.”While four of them were declared brought dead, Raghaveer Singh succumbed to injuries today, he said adding half of the injured were discharged after treatment.Among the injured, two persons including a woman were in intensive care unit for multiple splinter injuries in vital organs, he said.Singh, who was himself attending to the shelling victims, said they were being provided all facilities including medicines free.

Gujarat: Dalits and Rajputs clash after man adds suffix Sinh to name

Angered by a Dalit man’s decision to add the suffix ‘Sinh’ to his name, a group of Rajputs clashed with Dalits in Dholka town here last evening, the police said.Two FIRs had been lodged, with both sides blaming the other for the violence, the police added.Maulik Jadhav had recently announced on Facebook that he had added ‘Sinh’ to his name and he would now be known as Mauliksinh Jadav.Jadav alleged in his complaint to the police that a Rajput man, whom he identified as Sahdevsinh Vaghela, along with five others, thrashed him and ransacked his house yesterday for adding ‘Sinh’ to his name, police inspector L B Tavdi said.Jadav told reporters he took this decision to protest an attack on a Dalit man in Banaskantha district after he too had added the suffix ‘Sinh’ to his name.”This angered the Rajput members, who had been threatening me for some time on the issue,” Jadav added.The police said a counter complaint was lodged by a member of the Rajput community.Dhirajba Mahipatsinh Vaghela alleged a mob of Dalits ransacked his house and looted valuables last night, Tavdi said.Sahdevsinh Vaghela and others have been booked under various sections of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.No arrests have been made in the two cases yet.’Sinh’ is a suffix usually used by men of the Rajput community

India summons Pak Deputy HC over killing of 7- month-old in cross border firing

India today summoned Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner here and lodged a strong protest over the killing of a seven-month-old infant in unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bhimber sector.The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said it was conveyed to Pakistan Deputy High Commissioner Syed Haider Shah that the “deliberate targeting” of innocent civilians by Pakistani forces using small arms and high caliber weapons is “highly deplorable”.”The Deputy High Commissioner of Pakistan, Syed Haider Shah was summoned today and strong protest was lodged at the loss of life of a seven-month-old infant in unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan forces on May 21,” the MEA said.It said Pakistan authorities were asked to investigate into such heinous acts of killing innocent civilians and instruct its forces to desist from such acts immediately.”Targeting of innocent civilians including young children is against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct,” the MEA said.It said the Pakistani side was also asked to end the support being given to cross border infiltration of terrorists, including through covering fire.”Our strong concerns were also shared at continued unprovoked firing and ceasefire violations across the Line of Control and the International boundary,” it said.The MEA said more than 1,088 such violations have been carried out by Pakistan forces at the LoC and IB so far during 2018 which have led to loss of 36 lives and injuries to 127 people.”In 2018, Indian security forces have thwarted attempts by 53 terrorists to infiltrate and have neutralised five terrorists at the time of crossing the LoC,” it said.

Delhi HC orders regularisation of Kashmiri migrant teachers

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the regularisation of over 200 Kashmiri migrant teachers who have been working in Delhi government and municipal schools on contract for over two decades, saying it was a “sad day” for the society that teachers have to move court for their rightful claim.”The petitioners’ hope of returning to their homes and for peace in the Valley, may not yet be attainable, but the acceptance of their claims should act as a balm, re-kindle their confidence in the society and our commitment to equality and equal opportunity,” a bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Deepa Sharma observed.It asked Delhi government, the East, South and North Delhi municipal corporations and New Delhi Municipal Council to pass orders within eight weeks so that the teachers are get regular appointment from the date of their first appointment.In a 55-page verdict, the bench said “our society values teachers, who are venerated to the same level of parents, worthy of worship. It is a sad day for such a proud society that teachers have to reach out to courts for what is justly their due.”That this was the case with migrant teachers who had to toil for these 20 years with less than the minimum scale, is a sad commentary for the state which in the first place could not assure the security and safety of their life and possessions that led them to flee their native state and become refugees, in a manner of speaking, in their own country,” the bench said.Several Kashmiri teachers, who were present in the court, thanked the judges and broke down after pronouncement of the verdict. There are an estimated over 200 such teachers working in these Delhi schools.Threatened by large-scale communal violence in the Kashmir Valley in 1986, there was a mass exodus of Kashmiris to Jammu, Delhi and other nearby places, leaving their hearth and homes behind. Many of them were settled in camps by the Delhi government.To provide employment to the educated migrants, the Delhi government had on April 2, 1994, decided to appoint one educated member from each migrant family as teacher depending on her or his suitability for the different categories of jobs.In its order today, the court said the nomenclature of ‘contract teachers’ was artificial as these migrant teachers were appointed against regular vacancies and their services were unbroken.It also noted that the teachers’ appointments were pursuant to a constitutionally recognised procedure of advertisement and all of them held the requisite qualifications, including B.Ed, and were interviewed before their appointment.”For these reasons, having regard to their unbroken employment for over two decades, … the Kashmiri migrant teachers are entitled to be treated as regular appointees,” the bench said.It made it clear that these teachers will be entitled to provident fund benefit, gratuity, leave encashment and pension upon attaining the age of superannuation. They would be entitled for benefits, including arrears of 7th Pay Commission recomendations.The benefits would also be extended to those Kashmiri migrant teachers who have retired or died during the pendency of the pleas. In case of death, the amount will be released to their legal representatives.It also said that while making payments, the authorities should ensure that the tax deductions are spread out and minimum tax effect is felt by the teachers.”Continuing to deprive teachers of their rightful status and denying them dignity, which inevitably follows with insecurity of service and pitiable service conditions, would result in our society’s never being able to achieve these aims,” it said.The court observed it was “not in everybody’s ken to be a teacher” who play an extraordinary part in the lives of their pupils in shaping their thoughts and personalities.It dismissed the Delhi government’s appeal challenging a 2015 order of a single judge of the High Court directing regularisation of the Kashmiri migrant teachers employed on contractual basis in government and municipal schools in the national capital since 1994.The 2015 order of the High Court had come on the plea of the migrant teachers who were seeking equal pay and work benefits as well as regularisation of jobs, after their representations to the Centre and the Delhi government had failed to get them any relief.The court was informed by the migrant teachers that the pay received by them for PGT category was Rs 32,712 and for TGT category was Rs 32,248, whereas for regular PGT it was more than Rs one lakh and for regular TGT it is between Rs 85,000 to Rs 90,000.

Kumaraswamy takes oath amidst opposition show of unity, says ‘have tied’ Ashwamedha horse of Modi

Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy today said the JD(S) along with Congress had succeeded in tying Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Ashwamedha’ horse (victory horse) in Karnataka, fulfilling his aim.”I had said after the Uttar Pradesh election results came out that my aim is to tie the Ashwamwedha horse of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah (BJP President). Today both Congress and JD(S) together have tied their Ashwamedha horse in Karnataka,” Kumaraswamy said. Calling himself a “child of circumstances,” Kumaraswamysaid he decided to join hands with the Congress on theadvice of several political leaders in the “national interest.”Speaking to reporters after being sworn-in as chief minister, he said “Probably, in the days to come, Amit Shah has to go to Narendra Modi with lifeless Ashwamedha horse, as we have tied their horse.” He said many people were having doubts about whether the coalition government would last and assured them that he would provide a stable government. “There is doubt whether this government will last long. With my conduct and that of my government, I will ensurethat this opinion will change. I want to make it clear to thepeople of the state,” he said.Also readPM Modi congratulates new Karnataka CM KumaraswamyConceding that people had these doubts because the JDS broke away from the Congress in 2006 to form a government with BJP, Kumaraswamy said “…the nature of our (JDS, Congress) relationship thereafter has led to a doubt about our confidence in each other, and can we work together.” “I want to tell people of the state that this government will be a stable one. This coalition government will be more stable than one party government.We will notgive chance for any differences and we will work to solve theproblems of the state,” he added. JD(S) that had fought bitterlyagainst the Congress, especially in old Mysuru region, had to join hands to keep BJP out of power in Karnataka, where the May 12 assembly polls threw up a hung assembly.Pointing out that he had said before the election that if no party gets majority, he would sit in the opposition and would not reach understanding with any party, Kumaraswamy called himself a “child of circumstances.” “I’m a child of circumstances; it was unavoidable for me to keep aside my personal wishes and decisions,” he said. The Chief Minister said several national leaders after the assembly election results advised him to form the government withCongress, keeping the national interest in mind.Also readWe’re here to strengthen all regional parties: Naidu and Mamata lay out their agenda at Kumaraswamy’s oath ceremonyCiting the presence of several political leaders at the swearing-in ceremony, Kumaraswamy said “they all coming together makes me feel, it is a new development.With their coming together for the ceremony, youmay understand why I called myself a child of circumstances,” he added. Congress president Rahul Gandhi, his mother and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, N Chandrababu Naidu, and Pinarayi Vijayan, her counterparts in Andhra Pradesh, and Kerala respectively, were present.Tejashwi Yadav, the Leader of Opposition in the BiharAssembly, BSP chief Mayawati and SP leader Akhilesh Yadav, whohave struck an alliance in Uttar Pradesh, NCP leader Sharad Pawar, CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury, and socialistleader Sharad Yadav were also in attendance. The show of strength by a galaxy of national leaders and regional satraps is being seen as a strong signal to the BJP about the possibility of formation of a broad-based front to take on the BJP-led NDA in the Lok Sabha polls next year.Admitting that there were challenges ahead of him, Kumaraswamy said “it will not be easy for me to run this government easily. I will have to take every step with caution, that is the situation.” He said many leaders feel that under his leadership the new government would prove to be a “model government.” “I will try to keep up their trust and that of people in me and I will go ahead,” Kumaraswamy said.

Tadoba forever: Rare black panther spotted at tiger reserve; wildlife enthusiasts go into frenzy

For a Belgian family, a visit to Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve was a memorable one, as ended up spotting a black panther, also known as the Ghost of the Forest because of its elusive nature. The image has sent frenzy amongst wildlife enthusiast.The Aernouts were out on their evening safari in Kolsa zone near Shivanjhari waterhole of the reserve and were eager to catch a glimpse of the Shivanjhari tigress who moves around with her three cubs. However, they spotted a leopard quenching its thirst and managed to photograph it. “It was around 6.15 pm and our naturalist Swarna Chakraborty was with the family in the gypsy and drove near the waterhole on their way out of the park to see if the tigress was around but instead they spotted a panther. Chakraborty looked through his binoculars and confirmed that it was indeed a melanistic leopard,” informed Ranjit Mandal, General Manager of the Svasara Jungle Lodge.The pic taken by the forest department camera trap Field Director of TATR, Mukul Trivedi said that it was in the evening that the officials from resort first alerted him about this prized sighting and even shared the photographs. “Since we had some camera traps set up near the water hole that have been installed for tiger population estimation we immediately got it checked and found the image of a melanistic leopard captured and hence the sighting has been confirmed,” he said adding that a black panther was earlier spotted and also camera trapped when Wildlife Institute of India were monitoring the tigers in TATR but a tourist sighting it has created a huge excitement.Sarosh Lodhi, founder member, CLAW an independent forum of wildlife enthusiasts from Maharashtra said that the park will soon have even more visitors flocking as now there is something new to look forward to. “We only hope that the TATR does not go the Kabini sanctuary way and hike up the entry fees after surge in the number of visitors now,” he said.Melanistic leopards are same as any leopards found across India the only difference being the fact that they exhibit Melanism. Wildlife biologists say that one can spot the rosette patterns on these leopards too if observed closely, but its hidden by the excessive or dominance of black pigment

Sterlite protest: Rahul blames RSS, BJP hits back

Attacking the BJP and the RSS, Congress president Rahul Gandhi today alleged that Tamils are being brutally killed for not bowing to the Sangh philosophy and sought to put the blame for thrashing of Dalits in Gujarat on ‘repressive Manuvadi thought’ of the two organisations.In a tweet targetted at the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Gandhi also attached a news report video clip of Dalits being thrashed to death in Rajkot and Una.This soul-stirring video is a result of the Manuvadi thought. Before this disease spreads further in our country, we have to stop this. We will all together defeat this repressive thought of the BJP/RSS. It is time for change,” he tweeted in Hindi. This followed another tweet in Tamil in which the Congress chief alleged that Tamils were being killed as they refused to “bow” to the RSS philosophy.In an apparent reference to the continuing anti-copper plant violence at Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, in which at least 10 people have been killed in police firing, Gandhi said he was with the Tamil people. “Tamils are being brutally killed because they are refusing to bow to the RSS philosophy. The bullets of RSS and Modi can never crush the spirit of the Tamil people. Tamil Brothers and sisters, we are with you!,” he tweeted using the hashtag “SterliteProtest”.The Congress had yesterday also tweeted that the gunning down of people is a “brutal example of state sponsored terrorism”. “These citizens were murdered for protesting against injustice,” he had said. Yesterday, the Congress president had also urged students to “rise”, alleging their future was at risk as the prime minister wanted to appoint officers chosen by the RSS by “manipulating” the merit list in civil service examinations.This message came in the wake of a proposal seeking to bring in major changes in the allocation of services to candidates who clear the all-India examination. Asked to comment on this, BJP president Amit Shah had yesterday dismissed Gandhi’s claim, saying he cannot help if the Congress chief sees the Hinduva organisation in everything. “Tell me where the RSS comes in this? The examination will continue as it does now, there will be no arbitrary control over who will pass it. It is about evaluating performance in training. It is anyway a suggestion and no decision has been taken? Where does the RSS come in this? He sees the RSS in everything. What I can do,” Shah had said at a press conference. BJP slams Rahul Gandhi: The BJP today slammed Rahul Gandhi for targeting the RSS over the killing of 10 people in police firing in Tuticorin, saying the Congress chief was hiding his “failures” behind the veil of attacking the organisation. Gandhi claimed that Tamils were being killed as they refused to “bow” to the ideology of the RSS.In an apparent reference to the anti-copper plant violence at Tuticorin yesterday in which 10 people were killed in police firing, Gandhi said he was with the Tamil people. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra attacked Gandhi at a media briefing for drawing the RSS into the incident and said it underlined his “inexperience and immaturity”, wondering what future the Congress would have with such a president. “You can inherit presidency of a party but you cannot inherit wisdom and understanding,” he said, taking a dig at Gandhi.Patra also alleged, citing media reports, that senior Congress leader P Chidambaram was a director in the company, which was at the centre of the violent protests in the southern state, and asked Gandhi to seek clarification from him. In India’s federal structure, law and order is a state subject and the BJP-run central government has nothing to do with the police firing, Patra said, asking if Gandhi knew that.In a jibe, he said Gandhi so often errs by blaming the RSS for things happening across the country and the BJP would like to gift him Class VI civics book to learn about India’s federal structure, Constitution and democracy.What has happened is a matter of sorrow and Gandhi is trying to milk a sad incident for political mileage, Patra alleged.He wondered if the Congress president would also blame the RSS for anti-Sikh riots of 1984 and the Emergency imposed in 1975 by the then Indira Gandhi government. “He is not able to give a capable leadership to the Congress and believes that he can milk politically any situation to suit his political opportunism by drawing the RSS and the BJP into the battle,” he said. Patra accused Gandhi of hiding his “failures” behind the veil of attacking the RSS.

PM Modi congratulates new Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today congratulated H D Kumaraswamy on taking oath as the Karnataka chief minister and extended his best wishes on his new assignment.”I congratulate Shri @hd_kumaraswamy Ji and @DrParameshwara ji on taking oath as Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister of Karnataka. My best wishes for their tenure ahead,” he tweeted. Kumaraswamy was sworn-in as the Karnataka chief minister at the head of a JD(S)-Congress coalition government. The show of strength by a galaxy of national leaders and regional satraps at the ceremony is being seen as a strong signal to the BJP about the possibility of formation of a broad-based front to take on the NDA in the Lok Sabha polls next year.The BJP boycotted the ceremony and observed a “Black Day”. It held protests across Karnataka against the new coalition government, which it called “unholy”. The BJP today slammed the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka as an “opportunistic alliance” and described the presence of a host of opposition leaders at H D Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in ceremony as a “celebration of corruption”. Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said opposition parties were free to “daydream” of taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in elections and feel happy about it following the formation of a government in Karnataka, but the fact was that it was against the popular mandate.”It is an opportunistic alliance which is against the popular mandate. If they feel good about it, let them feel happy,” he told reporters while responding to a question on the opposition observing the day as ‘anti-BJP day’.”They are free to daydream but by forming an opportunistic alliance in Karnataka they cannot stop the march of Narendra Modi and his government,” he said. The show of strength with the presence of a galaxy of national leaders and regional satraps at the swearing in ceremony of Kumaraswamy as the state’s chief minister was being seen as an indicator of a broad-based anti-BJP front to take on the ruling NDA in the Lok Sabha polls next year.The BJP boycotted the ceremony and observed a “black day” during which it held statewide protests against the new coalition government, which it called “unholy”. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra referred to presence of opposition leaders, some of whom have faced corruption charges, and said the event was a “celebration of corruption”.

Kerala HC trashes plea seeking CBI probe into killing of RSS men

The Kerala High Court today dismissed a plea seeking a CBI probe into seven cases of alleged political killings of RSS-BJP activists that took place after the CPI(M)-led dispensation came to power in the state last year.Dismissing the petition filed by the Thalassery-based Gopalan Adiyodi Vakkeel Smaraka Trust, a bench comprising Chief Justice Antony Dominic and Dama Seshadri Naidu found there was no public interest in the plea and the petitioner approached the high court with political motive.Even the relatives of the deceased persons have no complaints that there were lapses in the investigation, the court said.Opposing the plea, the Kerala government had told the high court that there was no need for a CBI probe into the cases and argued that the plea was politically motivated.It had handed over a progress report of the investigation to the court.In the judgement, the high court said the petitioner had no sufficient material to substantiate their allegations.The high court also observed that maintenance of law and order is a state subject and only in rare cases the CBI probe is directed.Ordering a CBI probe in all cases is against the principles of federal state, the court said.The trust had submitted that in all these cases active workers of a major outfit, part of the ruling front, have been named as accused.It had also alleged that in some cases, party activists hailing from the constituency of the chief minister, who also holds the home portfolio, were involved.”In all these cases, facts and circumstances clearly indicate high-level political conspiracy in planned execution of the killings and efforts to save the real culprits,” the petitioner had contended.The trust had alleged that the police did not properly investigate the conspiracy angle in these cases.

Delhi zoo falters on animal deaths in inventory report

The National Zoological Park has come under the scanner for reportedly fudging the number of animal deaths in its annual inventory report for 2017.According to the Central Zoo Authority (CZA), the Delhi zoo recorded 325 deaths in 2016-17 from an opening stock of 1,259 animals. The closing stock of the zoo during this period stood at 1,202 animals.The reports, however, claimed that the city zoo misreported on the number of animal deaths during 2016-17 and also faltered on maintaining proper postmortem reports.A zoo official said Director Renu Singh will soon release a statement in response to the allegations.”We have come across the media reports and the director will soon issue a statement in this regard,” he said.CZA member secretary D N Singh told the media that an explanation has been sought from the Delhi zoo in the matter.Pannerselvam, Delhi zoo’s former veterinary officer, said it was mandatory to submit postmortem reports and record the mortality and birth rates of inmates to the zoo director.”Misreporting animal deaths and not maintaining postmortem registers is a serious anomaly. We used to regularly submit all these records and discuss any abberation with the director. If such practices are not followed, the zoo authority will put the inmates’ lives into danger,” he said.A series of animal deaths has been ailing the Delhi zoo in the recent past.Four monitor lizards died of shock in the zoo after a ranger reportedly pulled them out of their hibernation enclosure last year.A spate of hog-deer deaths had hit the zoo in 2015. The zoo’s only giraffe also died of kidney failure.Three out of the seven lion-tailed macaques living inside the zoo died under unnatural conditions in 2015-16.In September 2016, a 14-foot-long King Cobra, the only one in the zoo, died. In July 2016, a female ostrich was found dead under mysterious circumstances inside the zoo.

Molasses leak: Punjab Pollution Control board issues notice to Chadha Sugar mill over dead fish

Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) on Tuesday issued a notice to Chadha sugar mill in molasses leakage incident, seeking its reply on why action should not be initiated against it for the alleged violations detected by the probe committee.A large number of fish were found dead in Beas on May 17 after molasses from the sugar factory leaked into the river in Punjab’s Beas town, about 40 km from the Amritsar.”Notice has been issued to the Chadha Sugar mill, Kiri Afghana in Gurdaspur to seek the reply of its representatives on the findings of the probe committee report which found violations,” a senior official said here today.The sugar mill representatives have been asked to appear before the PPCB authorities tomorrow for giving their reply, the official further said.A probe committee, which submitted its report to the state government yesterday, found violation in the storage of molasses, a byproduct in sugarcane processing, at the factory.”There was a violation pertaining to the storage of molasses as the storage arrangements were not found to be as per rules,” official said while highlighting the major violation found by the probe committee.The committee had a mandate to investigate how and why this incident happened and what were the deficiencies and what action proposed to be taken to prevent such incidents in future.Following the molasses spill, the state government had already sealed the mill and seized its security deposit of Rs 25 lakh.The mill may also face action for contaminating the canal-based water under the northern India Canal Draining Act, the official added.A state government official said that following the molasses leakage, the main priority of the government was to ensure potable drinking water to people living in Faridkot, Muktsar and Fazilka districts where the water supply was canal based.People were asked not to use canal based water which was contaminated because of the leakage and inlets of reservoirs were also closed, the official said.Contaminated water with dead fish and snakes had also entered into Rajasthan through Indira Gandhi canal from Punjab, prompting the authorities to stop drinking water supply from the canal as a precautionary measure.The Indira Gandhi canal supplies water to Hanumangarh, Sriganganagar, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and other districts in north and western region of the desert state.Mixing of molasses with water led to the reduction of oxygen level in Beas river, thus killing tones of fish and destroying aquatic ecosystem in Beas. However, the sugar mill reportedly had termed this incident as an accident.As many as eight to ten varieties of fish including cat fish, common carp died because of low level of oxygen in the river.Meanwhile, another 1,000 cusecs of water will again be released from the Pong dam into the Beas river to flush out the contaminated water from the canals, the official said. Already more than 2,000 cusecs of water had already been released in Beas.With opposition SAD and AAP lashing out at the Congress led government for allegedly “protecting” the owner of the sugar mill, Punjab Governor and Administrator UT Chandigarh, V P Singh Badnore had already expressed concern over the contamination of river water and had sought full details of the extent of contamination and damage done to the environment from the state government.The mill belonged to Jasdeep Kaur Chadha, daughter of former Delhi Gurdwara Sikh Parbandhak Committee chief Harvinder Singh Sarna.Jasdeep’s late husband Hardeep Singh Chadha was the brother of liquor baron late Ponty Chadha

Uttar Pradesh: Sons and daughter kept dead mother ‘alive’ for 5 months to enjoy pension

In a shocking incident, five sons and an unmarried daughter of a 70-year-old lady kept her body in the house for the last five months to continue splurging on her Rs 40,000 pension in Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh.The incident came to light when residents of Awas Vikas Colony in Durgakund under Bhelupur Police Station called up the police on Wednesday afternoon about unbearable foul stench emanating from the house of Amravati Devi.Amravati’s husband had retired as Superintendent from Custom department and died a few years ago. The widow was living with her five sons Ravi Prakash, Jyoti Prakash, Girish Prakash, Yogeshwar Prakash, Dev Prakash and an unmarried daughter.She was getting Rs 40,000 as pension after her husband’s death. The amount was being largely spent to take care of families of her sons who are mostly employed, except for one who was a practicing lawyer but not earning much.When police forced its entry into the house, they were shocked to find the body of the elderly lady with foul stench spread all over the house and locality. Residents claimed that she was admitted in the BHU Hopsital in 2017 and had died on January 13 but her sons kept on lying that she was alive and bed-ridden.Few days after her death, four of her sons left the house along with their families while Ravi Prakash and her sister Vijay Lakshmi stayed back with her body. “Whenever we would inquire about his mother, he would politely reply that she has become weak and unable to walk, while she was already dead,” pointed Chedi Lal, a neighbour.Shockingly, the police also recovered some chemicals from the house which was applied on deceased’s body to embalm it. But the body was found beyond recognition as they used wrong chemicals for embalming which are not easily available in the market. Despite recovery of the body, Ravi Prakash and his sister kept on insisting that their mother was alive and resisted move to sent the body for the post mortem. However, later Ravi Praksh admitted before the SP City Dinesh Kumar that their mother had died about five months ago but they did not disclose her death to continue taking her monthly pension by using her thumb impression as they had no other source of survival. “The pension would have stopped had we announced her death and cremated the body. Since we are unemployed and have no source of income to run our families, we decided to keep her alive to continue getting the pension for our survival,” admitted Ravi Prakash.“A case has been registered and the body has been sent for the post mortem examination to ascertain cause and timing of death. We have also launched a search to detain her four sons for questioning. The Custom department has been informed about her death,” said the SP City. “We are shocked and baffled as to how could sons be so greedy to keep her mother’s body at home for five months to enjoy her pension benefits,” said Ramesh Chandra, a resident of the locality.

Major Gogoi detained after fracas at Srinagar hotel, J&K Police order probe

Major Nitin Leetul Gogoi of 53 Rashtriya Riffles (RR) was detained by the police along with the girl and accomplice after the hotel authorities reported the matter to the cops. The police later handed him over to his unit after questioning. Inspector General of Police, Kashmir Zone, SP Pani has ordered a high-level probe by Superintendent of Police, North City, to unravel the truth.The incident occurred on Wednesday morning when Major Gogoi, who had booked the hotel online, arrived at Hotel Grand Mamta to check in.“We asked him to show the identity card which he dutifully did. Later we asked the identity of the second person and he showed the identity card of a local girl. We objected because we have a policy of not giving room to locals. Therefore, we denied him the room”, said Manzoor Ahmad of Hotel Grand Mamta.Also readWhy Major Gogoi of Kashmir jeep row fame was detained by Jammu and Kashmir PoliceLater, he walked to the lobby where he had an argument with the guest relationship manager. “He sat in the lobby and started surfing on the mobile. He later argued with guest relations manager. When he walked out, he told his driver that the room has been denied. The driver was a well-built guy and he started arguing and altercation ensued. We immediately called up the police who took them along”, said Manzoor.Major Nitin Leetul Gogoi of 53 RR had shot to fame after he tied 26-year-old Kashmiri artisan Farooq Ahmad Dar with the bonnet of his jeep at Utligam before parading him in different villages on April 9, 2017. While Major Gogoi defended his actions saying he saved lives and dubbed “Dar as ring leader who instigated the stone pelting mob”, the incident had sparked massive anger and outrage across Kashmir. Major Gogoi was later awarded the Chief of Army Staff’s Commendation Card for his sustained efforts in counter-insurgency operations.Police said Police Station Khanyar had received a call from Hotel Grand Mamta that an altercation has taken place in their facility.“Accordingly, a police party was deputed to the hotel, and it surfaced that a one woman (name withheld) and person namely Sameer Ahmed of Budgam had come to see some person. But the hotel receptions did not allow them to meet the person. Meanwhile police party reached the spot and got all the persons to the police Station,” said a police spokesman.Police said subsequently it was learnt that the woman had come to meet an army officer. “The identity and particulars of the army officer has been collected by the police as well. The officials were handed over to their unit after due recording their statements. The statement of woman is also being recorded for probing the matter”, said the spokesman.Inspector General of Police, Kashmir Zone, SP Pani has ordered a high-level probe into the incident. “IGP Kashmir orders probe. SP North Zone Srinagar to probe the Hotel Grand Mamta incident”, tweeted Kashmir Zone Police.Indian Army did not respond to the repeated calls to seek their version.

Tuticorin killings: Death toll goes up to 13; protests against violence go up

At least 13 people were killed and more than 65 injured in the protest against the construction of a new copper smelter by the Sterlite industries in Thoothukudi.The agitation turned violent after protestors were not allowed to march up to the plant, due to which they began to pelt stones and topple police vehicles.In retaliation, police officials resorted to lathi-charge and tear gas to disperse the crowd.In the wake of the tragedy, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami announced an ex-gratia of Rs 10 lakh for the kin of the deceased, Rs 3 lakh for those severely injured and Rs 1 lakh for those who sustained minor injuries.Palaniswami also announced government jobs for the family of the deceased.Meanwhile, the Home Ministry on Wednesday sought a report from the Tamil Nadu government on the protest. Furthermore, a commission headed by a retired High Court judge, Aruna Jagadeesan, has also been constituted to probe the incident.The locals are up in arms against the construction of the copper plant, as they claim the plant would pollute groundwater in their area, thus causing serious environmental hazards.Earlier, Congress President Rahul Gandhi claimed that the protestors were killed for rejecting Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) ideologies.”Tamilians have been massacred because they refused to accept Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS’s) ideologies. The RSS and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been opposed by Tamil Nadu. Also, people of Tamil Nadu cannot be suppressed,” he tweeted in Tamil.The Congress President also extended support to the people of Tamil Nadu.”Dear Tamil brothers and sisters, we are with you,” he said.Citizens’ groups and students’ organisations staged a protest outside the Tamil Nadu Bhawan at Chanakyapuri here today, condemning the Tamil Nadu government for the killing of the anti-Sterlite plant agitators in Tuticorin in police firing.Over 60 protesters raised slogans and demanded parleys with the Principal Resident Commissioner of Tamil Nadu, Jasbir Singh Bajaj.The security, however, put up barricades and prevented them from entering the campus.Shutting down the Sterlite plant in Tuticorin, a judicial inquiry into the police firing, action against police officers, an independent inquiry into the company’s financing by the comptroller and auditor-general (CAG) were some of the demands of the protesters.Representatives of the All India Students’ Federation, Muslim Yuva Morcha, National Alliance of People’s Movements, All India Students’ Association, JNU Students’ Union and Students Islamic Organisation of India took part in the protest.The months-long protest in Tuticorin, demanding the closure of Vedanta’s Sterlite Copper unit, took a violent turn yesterday with agitators pelting stones and toppling police vehicles after they were prevented from marching towards the plant.Eleven protesters have been killed in police firing.

We’re here to strengthen all regional parties: Naidu and Mamata lay out their agenda at Kumaraswamy’s oath ceremony

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her Andhra Pradesh counterpart Chandrababu Naidu today pitched for all regional parties to come together for development of a federal setup in the country. Here to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the Congress-JDS coalition government led by H D Kumaraswamy, the two leaders said they want to promote regional parties and strengthen them.Both Banerjee and Naidu said they were happy that the leader of a regional party was assuming office and they were here to express their solidarity with the JDS. “We are present here to support Kumaraswamy ji and his government and we hope for the best,” Banerjee told reporters with Naidu standing next to her. “We will keep in touch with all the regional parties so that we can work for the development of the nation, development of the people and development of the federal set-up also,” the West Bengal chief minister added.If states are strong, the Centre would also be strong, she said adding, “Our mission and vision is very clear, that we can meet each other, we can talk to each other, and we can go to every state and talk to each other that will give us more strength for the future of the country.” The oath-taking ceremony with the participation of a galaxy of opposition leaders and chief ministers is being seen as a development that could plant a seed for a broad-based anti-BJP platform before the Lok Sabha polls next year.Also readKarnataka CM Kumaraswamy says will waive farmers loan after improving economy On his part, Naidu expressed happiness about a leader of a regional party taking over as the Chief Minister of Karnataka. “I met Mamata ji and we all have come here to witness the swearing-in ceremony of Kumaraswamy. He is from a regional party and we are very happy that he has become the Chief Minister of Karnataka,” he said. “We are expressing our solidarity, and also in future we will work together to protect ourselves and to promote nation, that’s our agenda” he added.Asked whether this is the coming together of a front against Prime Minister Narendra Modi or BJP, Naidu said “We want to promote more and more regional parties. We want to strengthen (regional parties). That is Mamata ji’s and our party’s mission and that is how we are working.” To a question on whether his party TDP was fine with the Congress’ presence at such a platform, he said, “we are witnessing Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in ceremony and he is from a regional party.

From kingmaker to king, all you need to know about Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy

“I will be the king and not the kingmaker,” H D Kumaraswamy had said in the run up to the Karnataka polls.His words proved prophetic as the 58-year-old Vokkaliga leader today wore the crown despite his JD(S) finishing a poor third in the electoral battlefield.On the margins of Karnataka politics for a decade, Kumaraswamy, the third son of JD(S) supremo and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, was widely tipped to play a supporting role in government formation, but nobody gave him even an outside chance of landing the chief minister’s chair.As the counting of votes progressed on May 15, and it became clear that there would be no straight winner in the three-horse race for power, fate smiled on Kumaraswamy.A badly bruised Congress, which failed to form its governments in Goa, Manipur and Meghalaya despite being the single largest party, moved in swiftly and declared it would unconditionally prop up a JD(S) government despite the party having only 37 MLAs, less than half the Congress’s strength of 78.Kumaraswamy quickly lapped up the opportunity and staked claim to form the government.Governor Vajubhai Vala, however, swore-in BJP’s B S Yeddyurappa to form the government as the leader of the single largest party in the 224-member Assembly, whose effective strength is 221.Vala’s decision could only delay Kumaraswamy’s ascension to the Karnataka throne, as Yeddyurappa, facing an imminent defeat during the trust vote, resigned within three days of being sworn in.By a quirk of fate, ‘Kumaranna’, who served as the chief minister for 20 months in 2006-07 at the head of a JD (S)-BJP government, and his party, have been catapulted to the forefront of efforts for cobbling together a broad-based anti-BJP front ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.A galaxy of leaders including….. descended on Bengaluru to fete the leader, who until a few days ago was perceived would be just an also-ran.Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown, goes the proverb.Though Kumaraswamy has managed to be back at the helm of affairs in Karnataka, managing the contradictions in the coalition may not be a smooth sailing for him after the JD(S) and Congress fought a bitter electoral battle in the state, particularly in the old Mysuru region.Kumaraswamy had conceded yesterday that running the coalition government for the next five years would be a “big challenge” for him.The first task for him would be a smooth expansion of his Council of Ministers, as the Congress would want to have a big share in the ministerial pie as it has more than double the number of MLAs the JD(S) has.The BJP, with its 104 MLAs would be a formidable opposition, and would do everything to keep the government on its toes.The BJP, which dubbed the Congress-JD(S) alliance as “unholy”, boycotted the oath-taking ceremony and observed an “anti-popular mandate day”, sending out a stern message that the bitter fallout of the split electoral verdict would continue to dog the state’s politics for a long time to come.Seen as an “accidental politician”, Kumaraswamy’s first love was films.A fan of Kannada thespian Dr Rajkumar, he was attracted to cinema since his college days. He took up film- making and distribution, and produced several successful Kannada films,including the recently released “Jaguar”, starring his son Nikhil Gowda.Kumaraswamy, who grew up in a political environment, entered electoral politics by contesting the Kanakapura Lok Sabha seat in 1996 and won. He subsequently lost both parliamentary and assembly elections.He got elected to the assembly for the first time in 2004, when the JD(S) joined the coalition government headed by Congress’s Dharm Singh after the elections threw up a hung House.In 2006, he rebelled and walked out of the coalition with 42 MLAs against the wish of his father, citing threat to the party, and formed the government with the BJP, becoming the chief minister during his very first term as MLA.Under a rotational chief ministership arrangement, he helmed the state for 20 months. When the BJP’s turn for chief ministership came, he reneged on the arrangement, and brought down the Yeddyurappa government within seven days.In the election that followed in 2008, the BJP formed its government in Karnataka, its first south of the Vindhyas.Kumaraswamy’s outreach to rural folk with ‘gram vastavya’ project under which he stayed in villages to understand their problems earned him popularity, but he also faced corruption taint in an alleged mining scam.Kumaraswamy has proved right the adage that politics is the art of the possible, and now the science graduate has to get his chemistry right with the Congress to ensure his government’s longevity.

The ATS, STF and Cyber Crime Cell teams have also been pressed to track the caller, said he.Also readAkhilesh Yadav’s hands stained with blood of Muzaffarnagar riot victims: Yogi Adityanath“A three-member SIT has been constituted and three FIRS have been lodged in this connection. Prima facie, the caller seems to have used a US number to send WhatsApp messages. We are close to identifying the caller,” said he.The caller has sent similar WhatsApp messages to all BJP MLAs from the same international number raising suspicion that it could be a crank call.The BJP MLAs and their families are in a state of shock after receiving the messages. DGP OP Singh has directed to increase security of these MLAs and their family members till the caller is identified and arrested.

Why Major Gogoi of Kashmir jeep row fame was detained by Jammu and Kashmir Police

Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday detained army officer Major Leetul Gogoi in a hotel along with a woman.In 2017, Major Gogoi was in the news for tying a local Kashmiri to a bonnet of his vehicle in Badgam district during a stone-pelting incident. The current fracas started when he reportedly tried to check in a girl at the hotel. He was handed over the police which handed him over to his unit after questioning.A police statement said they got a call from the Hotel Grand Mamta after an altercation. The J&K Police statement said: “A police party was deputed to the hotel and it surfaced that a woman (name withheld) and a man identified as Sameer Ahmed of Budgam had come to see some person.”The police added: “But the hotel reception did not allow them to meet the person. Meanwhile, police reached the spot and got all the persons to the police Station. Subsequently, it was learnt that the woman had come to meet an Army officer. The identity and particulars of the Army officer have been collected by the police. The official was handed over to (his) unit after recording their statements. The statement of the woman is also being recorded.”Inspector General of Police SP Pani has ordered a probe into the incident which will be conducted by a SIT headed by SP(North) Srinagar.The Indian Army officer, who shot to fame after tying a man to a jeep, had been awarded the Army Chief Commendation Card for sustained efforts in operations in the Valley.The video became a topic of debate after the man, identified Farooq Ahmad Dar, was tied to the vehicle after casting his vote during the Jammu & Kashmir bye-elections.At the time, Dar told DNA that he was paraded for 26 km allegedly to keep stone-pelters at bay. He said: “I cannot believe that I am alive. They first thrashed me and then tied me to the bonnet of the jeep and zoomed past several villages.”Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh had praised the young officer for showing amazing presence of mind in extreme pressure situation. His action became so famous that it was a cultural reference in a recent Tiger Shroff movie Baaghi 2.

Speaking to reporters at Mysuru after worshipping Goddess Chamundeshwari on the Chamunda Hill, he said, “I have limitations as a head of the coalition government. I have to take our coalition partners into confidence.” “They (Congress) too have their own programmes in their manifesto. We have to compile the manifesto of two parties and after improving the economy of the state, we will waive farm loans. There is no question of my backtracking,” he added. However financial difficulties are there, without disturbing the state economy we will implement it, the JDS leader said.He said it was not true that the new government has taken a u-turn on waiving farmer loans adding there was no changes in the promises made in the party manifesto. The JDS leader appealed to farmers not to take “drastic steps.” He said he would always be there to respond to their pain and anguish not in the capacity of a chief minister but as their son and servant.Also readKarnataka BJP to observe ‘Anti-People’s Mandate Day’ to protest Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in “Giving security to you all is the duty of our coalition government.

HD Kumaraswamy takes oath as Karnataka CM, opposition leaders present in show of strength

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday expressed their willingness to work together with HD Kumaraswamy, who took oath as Karnataka Chief Minister on Wednesday.“We’ve come here to witness the swearing-in of HD Kumaraswamy and express our solidarity to him. In the future, we’ll work together to protect and promote national interest. We’re here to strengthen all regional parties,” they told reporters in Bengaluru.Meanwhile, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar and Samajwadi Party (SP) Chief Akhilesh Yadav also arrived in Bengaluru to take part in the oath-taking ceremony of Kumaraswamy.Also readKarnataka BJP to observe ‘Anti-People’s Mandate Day’ to protest Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in Among the confirmed attendees at the swearing-in are United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, and Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati.Also readKumaraswamy to take oath as Karnataka CM today; top opposition leaders to attend ceremonyDelhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his Kerala counterpart Pinarayi Vijayan, Samajwadi Party chief, Akhilesh Yadav, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and son of former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad, Tejaswi Yadav will also be present to witness Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in.Other notable guests include the founder of Rashtriya Lok Dal, Ajit Singh (also an ex-Union Minister), actor-turned-politician and founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam, Kamal Haasan.Meanwhile the BJP today observed a ‘black day’ against the Congress-JDS government headed by HD Kumaraswamy ahead of its swearing-in, and gave a call to the “sidelined” Congress leaders in the new coalition to join the saffron party.The BJP warned that it would hold a statewide ‘bandh’ if the new coalition government fails to fulfill its election promises.Addressing the party workers who had gathered in large numbers to stage a demonstration near the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Anand Rao Circle, BJP state chief B S Yeddyurappa condemned the coalition government as “an opportunistic alliance.” “There is a farm loan of Rs 53,000 crore. You have said you will waive all the loans. Let us see whether you will actually waive all the farm loans. If you fail, we will observe a bandh all over the state,” he said.The state BJP chief said the Congress should immediately distance itself from the JDS or else the dream of Congress-free India will be a reality soon.”Congress has lost its base in the state. With whom will the Congress go tomorrow? Will you go with Kumaraswamy?,” said Yeddyurappa.He also gave a call to Congress leaders, who felt offended for being sidelined in the new scheme of things in the coalition government, to join the BJP.”Congress leaders must wake up. Those who felt cheated can come to BJP. If there is any party, which has faith in democracy, it is BJP. Let us build Karnataka as a model state. I flay this coalition government,” said Yeddyurappa.Slamming the BJP for observing the “black day”, JDS leader Kumaraswamy said, “Having no concern for public is BJP’s style of functioning. Their politics revolved around misleading people by organising events like black day, some kind of Yatra and fomenting passions. You cannot expect anything better from them.”Yeddyurappa had stepped down as Karnataka chief minister within three days of assuming office after failing to muster enough numbers, without facing the floor test on May 19.The BJP had emerged as the single largest party with 104 seats in the assembly elections, with a fractured mandate.With Yeddyurappa failing to take the floor test, the Congress and JD(S) claiming the support of 117 MLAs was invited to form the government by Governor Vajubhai Vala.Former deputy chief minister R Ashok, MP Shobha Karandlaje and BJP leader Jaggesh also participated in the protest.Ministers in new governmentKarnataka Congress president G Parameshwara will be sworn-in as the deputy chief minister, AICC general secretary in-charge of the state K C Venugopal said on Tuesday.Congress’s Ramesh Kumar, a former minister, will be the next Assembly speaker, while the deputy speaker’s post will go to the JD(S), Venugopal told PTI.The first task for Kumaraswamy would be a smooth expansion of his Council of Ministers, as the Congress would want to have a big share in the ministerial pie as it has more than double the number of MLAs the JD(S) has.The Congress would have 22 ministers and JD(S) 12, Venugopal said, adding that they would be sworn-in after the floor test slated for Friday.The Congress has 78 lawmakers in the Lower House against the 37 of the JD(S).A section of Lingayat MLAs of the Congress wanted a person from their community to be the deputy chief minister as Kumaraswamy belongs to another politically influential caste, the Vokkaligas.However, Rahul Gandhi approved the name of Dalit leader G Parameshwara for the post, Venugopal said.D K Shivakumar, another Vokkaliga leader of the Congress, who emerged as a key figure in keeping the party MLAs together before the trust vote, was also a contender for the deputy chief minister’s chair, but the party high-command opted for Parameshwara.The JD-S’s chief minister-designate said portfolio distribution would be discussed the day after tomorrow and a coordination committee would be formed to facilitate smooth functioning of the coalition.

LeT terrorist reveals shocking info; says organisation has developed untraceable mobile phone; recruiting 450 Pak boys

In a shocking revelation, the student wing of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Al Muhammadia Students (AMS) have developed a mobile handset for communication by LeT members with each other, the Times of India reported.The revelations have been made by Zaibullah, a LeT terrorist from Multan while being interrogated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) after his arrest in April.According to the report, calls made using this handset cannot be traced by Indian intelligence agencies. If at all, intelligence agencies try to intercept the device, the call will automatically terminate.The terrorist has further claimed that LeT recruited and trained 450 boys in 2017 from different areas of Pakistan for anti-India operations. Boys aged 15 to 25 years are being recruited they are being radicalised in the name of ‘Burhan Wani’ by LeT.Earlier this month, Jammu and Kashmir police blew the lid off a major plan of the Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) to assassinate a large number of civilians in North Kashmir in a bid to instil fear and create an atmosphere of terror in the Valley.Also readJammu and Kashmir police foil Lashkar-e-Taiba assassination planFour terrorists and six Over Ground Workers (OGWs) were arrested by security forces for killing three civilians in Baramulla on April 30.”Interrogation of these terrorists revealed that LeT handlers in Pakistan had given clear instructions to them to create an atmosphere of terror in North Kashmir by eliminating many civilians who are perceived to be friendly with the government or security forces,” said a police spokesman.Those arrested have been identified as Suhaib Farooq Akhoon alias Abu Huraira, Mohsin Mushtaq Bhat alias Shera, Ajaz Ahmad Gojri alias Abu Umair and Bilal Ahmad Najar alias Abu Sameer.”Since all terrorists involved in this crime are locals of Baramulla, they were easily spotted by eyewitnesses, who immediately reported to police. Earlier, a Pakistani who was suspected to be involved in these murders as per the initial eyewitness accounts turned out to be Aijaz Gojri who had changed his appearance to create the impression of being a Pakistani,” said the spokesmanPolice said sustained questioning of these arrested terrorists helped them unearth a LeT module operating in Sopore-Baramulla belt.

Palghar bypoll: Congress accuses CM Fadnavis of poll code violation

The Congress today approached the Election Commission, alleging that Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis violated the code of conduct during the ongoing campaign for Palghar Lok Sabha by-poll.The chief minister, in his speech at Nala Sopara on May 20, promised to exclude 29 villages from the jurisdiction of Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation, the opposition party alleged.Such a promise amounted to violation of the poll code, said state Congress general secretary Sachin Sawant.Chandrakant Dube, election agent of Congress candidate Damodar Shingda, filed a complaint against Fadnavis with the returning officer, Sawant said.The party also submitted a recording of Fadnavis’s speech, he said.The by-election of May 28 was necessitated by the death of BJP MP Chintaman Wanga.

Pakistani girl killed in Texas school shooting buried in Karachi

A Pakistani exchange student killed in a mass shooting in Texas last week was buried in her hometown of Karachi on Wednesday, her coffin draped with Pakistan’s green and white flag.Sabika Sheikh, 17, was among eight students and two teachers killed in Texas when Santa Fe High School, southeast of Houston, on Friday joined a grim list of US schools and campuses where students and staff have been gunned down, stoking a divisive debate about gun laws.Sheikh’s body arrived in Pakistan on Tuesday night and the funeral was held at a graveyard near her home in Karachi in the middle class Gulshe-e-Iqbal neighbourhood.Among about 400 people at the funeral was US Ambassador David Hale and politicians from the provincial Sindh government.”This innocent girl had gone to brighten the name of Pakistan,” Amir Khan, a senior leader of the Muttahida Quami Movement party which forms the city government in Karachi, told reporters at the funeral.”But due to bad luck in a country that accuses the world of terrorism, she became a victim of terrorism herself.”Sheikh’s father, Aziz, said earlier the thought of school shootings had never crossed his mind when he sent Sabika to study in the United States.”Sabika’s case should become an example to change the gun laws,” Aziz Sheikh told Reuters.Sabika was part of the YES exchange programme funded by the US State Department, which provides scholarships for students from countries with significant Muslim populations to spend an academic year in the United States. She was due to return to Pakistan on June 9.”I have no words to express my feelings,” family friend Mohammad Ali said after the coffin arrived at the family home. “It is a great loss to Pakistan. She wanted to do a lot for this country.”

Sterlite industry must be shut down, compensation not a solution, says Kamal Haasan

Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan on Wednesday demanded that the Sterlite industry must be shut.”We must know who ordered this firing. It is not me, but the victims who are demanding this. Merely announcing compensation isn’t a solution. This industry must be shut and this is what people demand,” Haasan told reporters outside the General Hospital in Thoothukudi, where he met those who were injured in the clashes.However, the family of some victims slammed the Makkal Needhi Maiam chief for visiting the hospital, claiming they were facing difficulty due to his visit.”We are facing difficulties due to your visit. Please leave from here,” they said.Earlier in the day, Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) Chief Vaiko also met those injured during protests against Sterlite industries.Security has been tightened in Thoothukudi and Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) (prohibits assembly of more than 4 people in an area) has been imposed in the city after clashes turned violent on Tuesday, killing at least 11 persons and injuring over 65.So far, 42 people have been admitted to the hospital and few have been transferred to the Tirunelveli medical college to reduce congestion.”42 people have been admitted to our hospital till now, few transferred to Tirunelveli medical college to reduce congestion. 10 bodies are in the mortuary here. 17 surgeries have been done,” said Tamil Nadu Director of Medical Education, Dr A Edwin Joe.Meanwhile, the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court on Wednesday stayed the construction of a new copper smelter by the Sterlite copper mining industry in Thoothukudi.As per locals, the construction of the copper plant would pollute groundwater in their area, thus causing serious environmental hazards.

Nipah virus: Kerala govt offers job to nurse Lini Puthussery’s husband, Rs 10 lakh each to her 2 children

The Kerala government has decided to give a government job to the husband of nurse Lini Puthussery who died after contracting Nipah from her patients. The government will also give Rs 10 lakh each to their two children.A decision in this regard was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.Sajeesh, Lini’s husband, will be offered a government job based on his qualifications. Their two children, aged five and two, will be given Rs 10 lakh each from the chief minister’s relief fund, a government press release said.Of the amounts sanctioned for Lini’s children, Rs 5 lakh each will be deposited in their bank accounts. The remaining Rs 5 lakh each will be deposited in such a manner that the interest amounts can be utilised by the guardian for the needs of the children, the release added.Besides, the government will also give Rs 5 lakh each to the next of kin of the nine others who have lost their lives to Nipah virus.Lini, who was working in the Perambra Taluk hospital, had contracted the deadly virus from her patients who had sought treatment at the hospital in the initial days.Sajeesh, who was working in Bahrain, had rushed to Perambra on hearing about her illness, two days before her death.Lini, who was aware of the seriousness of her illness, had scribbled an emotional last letter to Sajeesh saying, “I am almost on the way. I do not think I can meet you. You should look after our children well,” which had gone viral on the social media.As Sajeesh struggles to come to terms with the loss, he gathered himself to thank the government for this gesture.Three patients of a family from Soopykada village in Permabra had been initially admitted at the Perambra taluk hospital for treatment, where Lini was a nurse.The virus has so far claimed 10 lives in Kozhikode and Malappuram districts.Two more persons who died of high fever are suspected to have contracted the virus.

India, Pak entry into SCO increased potential for cooperation: Xi Jinping

Chinese President Xi Jinping has said with the entry of India and Pakistan, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) has gained more potential for cooperation and more expectations from the international community.In his address to the representatives to the 13th meeting of Security Council Secretaries of the SCO in Beijing on Tuesday, Xi said maintaining regional security and stability has been the top priority of the bloc since it was founded.”The SCO members have fought the ‘three evil forces’ of terrorism, separatism and extremism; prevented the overflow of negative effects from hot issues; and made important contributions to keeping regional peace, development and prosperity,” Xi was quoted as saying by the state-run China Daily.Xi pointed out that when the SCO accepted Pakistan and India last year as new members, it gained more potential for cooperation and more expectations from the international community.Deputy National Security Adviser Rajinder Khanna, Pakistan’s NSA Nasser Khan Janjua along with top security officials of the SCO member countries called on Xi after the conclusion of their two-day meeting here yesterday.The security officials met ahead of the SCO summit in the Chinese city of Qingdao to be held on June 9-10.

The risks require SCO members to handle the issues properly through correct judgments,” he said.The SCO members should uphold the strategic direction of security cooperation, continue to boost mutual strategic trust, enhance coordination of policy, uphold justice and jointly push the resolution of regional hot issues through political and diplomatic measures, Xi said.Xi called on the other SCO members to build up their capacity for joint security operations and build an efficient law-enforcement cooperation network.China will continue to integrate its national security with regional security, work with SCO members to build a new type of international relations with features of mutual respect, justice and win-win cooperation; and push to build a community of shared future for mankind, Xi said.The SCO security officials during their meeting discussed with Xi issues like fighting terrorism and the “three evil forces”, beefing up information security and maintaining social stability, the report said.China’s Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi who presided over the SCO security officials meeting told reporters that the representatives reached important consensuses during the meeting.The relevant sides have agreed to submit such documents as enhancing cooperation in fighting the “three evil forces” to the SCO summit in Qingdao for further approval, he said.
