Pak to give greater administrative and financial authority to PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan

Pakistan’s top civil and military leaders have decided to give greater administrative and financial authority to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, the region through which the controversial USD 50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) passes.During a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) – the top civil and military body – Sartaj Aziz, Deputy Chairman Planning Commission and the Ministry of Kashmir Affairs & Gilgit-Baltistan, yesterday briefed the Committee on the PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan reform proposals, an official statement said.The meeting chaired by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi reviewed these proposals and after detailed deliberations a consensus was reached on the “devolution of greater administrative authority and financial powers” to the PoK government and the Gilgit-Baltistan government, according to the statement.The details of administrative and financial reform have not been shared so far.However, there was also consensus over retention of the PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan Councils as advisory bodies; and the grant of a five-year tax holiday to Gilgit-Baltistan so as to create adequate incentives for the development of the region and bring it at par with the other areas of Pakistan.Gilgit-Baltistan is treated as a separate geographical entity by Pakistan. Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh are four provinces of Pakistan.India has termed as “entirely unacceptable” any possible attempt by Pakistan to declare the Gilgit-Baltistan region, bordering the disputed Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, as the fifth province. India has protested to China over the CPEC which goes through Gilgit-Baltistan region.It is believed that China’s concerns about the unsettled status of Gilgit-Baltistan prompted Pakistan to change its status.Earlier media reports had said that Pakistan plans to elevate the constitutional status of the region to provide legal cover to the CPEC.The NSC also endorsed that FATA shall be merged with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa along with the introduction of the administrative and judicial institutional structures and laws of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the statement said.The Committee directed the concerned ministries to work out the constitutional, legal and administrative modalities for the merger in consultation with all parties in the Parliament.The meeting was attended by Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Minister for Defence & Foreign Affairs Khurram Dastgir Khan, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat, Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief of Naval and Air forces, ISI chief and other senior civil and military officials.

JJ Hospital doctors continue strike against assault by patient’s family, seek implementation of security system

The strike of resident doctors at Mumbai’s JJ Hospital to protest an assault on two doctors by relatives of a patient entered its second day on Sunday. The doctors had gone on a strike on Saturday, soon after two doctors were assaulted by relatives of a patient who died during treatment on Saturday morning. The Police have registered a case against five people and arrested four of them but the doctors have not budged saying they will not call off the strike until all of their demands are met.The incident took place in the morning when Zaida Sanaullah Sheikh (45), a resident of Mumbra who was being treated for a gall bladder ailment, died.Her family members alleged that it was due to negligence on the doctors’ part and beat up Dr Atish Parikh and a woman doctor who were on duty, a police official said. Dr Parikh suffered a facial fracture in the assault. A nurse was also allegedly manhandled, and the relative of another patient, who rushed to help the doctors, was beaten up.They also allegedly ransacked the ward. CCTV footage of the incident went viral on social media.Police arrested five members of Sheikh’s family, including a woman, for the alleged assault.”We have arrested four persons — Mohammed Shaikh, Sony Sanaullah, Rihan Sanaullah and Samila Sanaullah,” said Senior Police inspector Shirish Gaikwad of JJ Marg police station.After the incident, the hospital realised that the emergency alarm system – proposed two years ago and meant to alert security personnel – has not been installed. Resident doctors at the hospital announced a day-long strike demanding implementation of the security system.The Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) alleged that despite repeated requests, there was no adequate security at the hospital.MARD chief Dr Sarang Donarkar, in a letter to the Dean of J J Hospital, alleged that the number of security guards has been reduced to half.Donarkar said on Saturday that they would not call off the strike until their demands are met. “We will call off the strike only when we see the implementation of security system on the ground rather than just on paper. We had a meeting today with the Dean and demanded to assign one security guard in every ward of the hospital. Unless our demand is fulfilled, we won’t work,” Dr Sarang Donarkar, Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) president, said. “The authority is only giving us assurance that they will soon increase the security force but they need some time to complete paper work and get permission to increase the number of guards,” he said.

This remark on Karnataka proves Rajinikanth has finally emerged from shadows of BJP

In what can be termed as a defining moment for Rajinikanth and his future course of politics, the superstar-turned-politician on Sunday slammed the BJP for the crucial floor test in Karnataka.Breaking away the perception of him being close to the saffron party, Rajinikanth said, ‘what happened in Karnataka yesterday was a win for democracy. BJP asking for some more time and Governor giving 15 days time was a mockery of democracy.’‘I would like to thank Supreme Court for its order, which upheld the democracy,’ he added.However, this is not the first time that Rajinikanth has taken an anti-BJP stance. On earlier occasions too, he had clearly said that ‘BJP was not behind me.’In 2004, Rajinikanth had openly pledged his support for the BJP-AIADMK alliance during the Lok Sabha elections. The alliance won zero seats that year.Meanwhile, Karnataka Chief Minister-designate HD Kumaraswamy on Sunday said he will prove the majority just 24 hours before taking the oath.‘Tomorrow morning, I am going to Delhi. I will meet Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Just 24 hours after the oath, I’ll prove the majority,’ Kumaraswamy told reporters here.With Kumaraswamy all set to take oath as the Karnataka Chief Minister on May 23, leaders from the Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) will be meeting today to discuss the future of the alliance in the state assembly.The elected MLAs from both the parties are expected to attend the meeting.On Saturday, Kumaraswamy was invited by Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to form the government in the state, after Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) B.S. Yeddyurappa stepped down ahead of the floor test in the state assembly.While Kumaraswamy was earlier expected to swear-in as Karnataka Chief Minister on May 21, the ceremony later got pushed to May 23 due to the death anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

UP opposition parties learn lessons from Karnataka assembly elections

The outcome of Karnataka assembly polls has underlined the need for the opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh to prevent a split in the anti-BJP vote in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, party leaders said.Opposition parties like the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Congress argue that it was a division in the anti-BJP vote that allowed the saffron party to emerge as the single largest party in Karnataka.”There is a strong need to chalk out a strategy to ensure that the anti-BJP votes do not get divided to give it (BJP) any advantage in the coming elections,” SP spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary told PTI here.Elections now have to be fought strategically, he said.That success can be achieved through unity has been proved very well in Gorakhpur and Phoolpur, where the SP wrested the seats from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party with the help of the BSP, Chaudhary said.Airing similar views, Congress spokesman Dwijendra Tripathi said going by the Karnataka results, it has become all the more important to go to the polls unitedly to not only win elections but also to save the constitutional bodies.”What is most important today is to keep the BJP out of power and save the Constitution,” Tripathi said.While reacting to the Karnataka results, BSP president Mayawati said the Congress should not repeat the mistake it committed while campaigning in Muslim-dominated areas, terming the Janata Dal (Secular) as the ‘B-team’ of the BJP.This, she suggested, had helped the BJP win those seats.”It is my suggestion to the Congress not to use such language in the future which could help the BJP and the RSS in future elections,” Mayawati had said.Rashtriya Lok Dal spokesman Anil Dubey said his party was always of the opinion that all like-minded non-BJP parties should come on one platform to stop the BJP.”The lesson to learn from the Karnataka election is that only a collective opposition can check the BJP and the past record proves this point,” Ramesh Dixit, political analyst and former head of the political science department at Lucknow University, said.In the context of the coming Lok Sabha elections, he suggested it was for the Congress with its pan-India reach and the ambition to form government in Delhi to reach out to the smaller parties with a strong base in different parts of the country.The Congress has to learn from the BJP how it entered into an alliance with the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party and the Apna Dal for the UP assembly polls despite its government being comfortably placed at the Centre, Dixit said.Leaders who urge opposition unity draw attention to the past two elections in UP where the BJP won convincing victories even though the collective vote share of the non-BJP parties was bigger.In the last assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh in 2017, the saffron party posted a landslide victory bagging 325 of the 403 seats, with a vote share of 41.35%.In comparison, the SP which was reduced to 54 seats from 224 in the previous aAssembly election got 28.07% of the vote. The BSP came down to 19 seats from 80, getting 22.23% votes.In the 2014 Lok Sabha election, BJP won 71 out of 80 seats with its alliance partner the Apna Dal getting two more, beating the opposition parties hands down. The BJP got 42.63% votes and the Apna Dal 1.01%.In comparison, the SP won a mere five seats with 22.35% votes in 2014. The BSP polled 19.77% votes but drew a blank. The Congress got two seats with a 7.53% vote share.

Pak Rangers ‘plead’ with BSF to stop firing as trooper killed, assets destroyed across IB

The Border Security Force (BSF) today said that the Pakistan Rangers today “pleaded” with them to stop firing along the IB after being pounded with heavy artillery that also left a trooper dead across the border.The border guarding force also released a 19-second thermal-imagery footage showing the destruction of a Pakistani picket across the border in retaliation to the unprovoked firing and shelling along the IB. (Pakistan) Rangers called up Jammu BSF formation today and beseeched to stop firing, a BSF spokesman said.”The befitting reply by BSF units to the unprovoked shelling and firing across the IB by Pakistani forces has forced them to plead for ceasefire,” a senior official said.”For the last three days, the precision fire of BSF troopers on Pakistani firing locations inflicted heavy losses and yesterday this firing found their mark with one of the rangers in chicken neck area,” the official said.The BSF had lost two of its jawans in this latest round of unprovoked firing on the Jammu IB over the last few days.A number of civilians were also killed and injured in the Jammu area due to this firing incident which was seen to have increased in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s day-long visit to Jammu and Kashmir yesterday.Jammu and Kashmir witnessed a spurt in Pakistani shelling and firing along the IB and the Line of Control (LoC) this year.Over 700 incidents of fire and shelling were reported, which left 38 people including 18 security personnel dead and scores injured.

6 dead after Naxals blow up police vehicle in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada

In a brazen attack, the Naxals blew up a police vehicle in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada on Sunday. At least six security personnel were killed in the attack, an official told news agency PTI.One other jawan has been injured in the blast in Dantewada’s Cholnar village, which ripped apart the police vehicle in which they were travelling.The bomb went off the moment the moving vehicle came over it, leaving a small crater on the road.This is second such attack in the month of May. Earlier, a 39-year-old police constable was killed and a civilian sustained injuries when suspected Maoists opened fire at them in Chhattisgarh’s Rajnandgaon district on May 6.The incident occurred late in night in Sadak Banajari village where the police jawan, identified as Ganeshwar Singh Uike alias Ravi, had gone to attend the marriage of his cousin brother, a local police official said.Uike, who was a Maoist before being recruited as constable in the District Reserve Guard (DRG) of Rajnandgaon, had surrendered before the police in 2011, he said.He was said to be on the target of Maoists since 2016 when he joined the DRG, the official said.As per preliminary information, Uike and another person accompanying him were outside the village, about 150 km from Rajnandgaon, when three Maoists, dressed as civilians, reached the spot and opened fire injuring both of them, he said.The rebels then immediately fled the spot.The two injured persons were rushed to a local community health centre where Uike succumbed to injuries, the official said.The civilian who sustained bullet injuries on his hand was later shifted to the Rajnandgaon district hospital where his condition was reported to be out of danger, he said.(With agency inputs)

Kathua rape-murder case: Accused’s signatures don’t match with exam attendance sheet, says CFSL report

The signature of Vishal Jangotra, an accused in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua in January, does not match the one which he claimed to have signed in an exam attendance sheet in Meerut to claim he was not at the crime scene, according to a report of forensic experts.The report by the Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory (CFSL), detailing this conclusion, has been submitted to the crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir police, according to officials in the probe team.The crime branch, meanwhile, issued notices to all the three friends of Vishal for appearing before it for questioning tomorrow after the Supreme court gave a go ahead on May 17 for their further examination.The officials said the report has stated that Vishal had not put the signature on the attendance sheet and it was done by someone else.Vishal, one of the eight accused arrested in the case for raping and murdering the girl from the minority nomadic community, had claimed that he was in Meerut and had never visited Kathua when the crime was committed. He had also told the investigators that he had signed the attendance sheet before the examination on January 15.The crime branch had sent the attendance sheet to CFSL for having an opinion as the probe indicated that the signatures appeared to have been made by some friend of Vishal as his train from Jammu to Meerut was late and he had reached Meerut after the examination was over, officials said.The “Questioner of Examined Documents” (QED), who is an expert on examination of handwriting samples, opined that the signatures on the attendance sheet did not match with that of Vishal, son of Sanji Ram, the alleged mastermind of the murder, the officials said.The crime branch has already expanded its investigations into the gang rape and murder case to nail the people who had signed an attendance register on behalf of Vishal at the Meerut college.Police wanted to again question his three friends — Sachin, Neeraj and Sahil — but they had approached the Supreme court earlier this month alleging harassment by the crime branch.The apex court on May 17 refused to come to their rescue and directed them to appear before the crime branch but said in its order that “a relative of each of the witnesses shall be allowed to accompany him, but the said relative shall not enter into the investigation room. However, he shall remain at a reasonably visible distance.” While making this concession, the apex court made it cleat that these directions “should not remotely be inferred that there is any kind of harassment by the investigating agency”.The officials said that the three would be questioned tomorrow and all the directions of the apex court would be adhered to.The officials suspected that someone from the university had allowed Vishal to write his answer sheet after the examination was over on January 15 as his train had reached late from Jammu. The officials also alleged that the accused had deliberately visited an ATM and was seen looking at the camera to create an alibi for himself.In its charge sheet, the crime branch had mentioned that some officials of the university had allegedly received “huge amount at kickback from accused Sanji Ram”.”The aspect needs further investigation as records are to be collected from concerned college and university….after conducting further investigation supplementary charge sheet will shall follow,” the charge sheet had said.Vishal is among eight people who have been charge sheeted by the crime branch in the rape and murder of the girl. The charge sheet also claimed that Sanji Ram, who has been termed as a main conspirator, had planned the kidnapping of the girl only to drive away nomads from the Kathua region.The crime branch has alleged in the charge sheet that Vishal had tried to create an alibi of his absence from the crime scene by allegedly “resorting to manipulation of records and creation of false evidence with the connivance and assistance of his father Sanji Ram”.Vishal, who is pursuing his bachelor of agriculture course from a college in Meerut, has been charged by the crime branch of raping and helping in the murder of the minor girl along with a juvenile (main accused and a relative of Sanji Ram) and special police officer Deepak Khajuria alias Deepu. The girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was recovered on January 17. She was murdered on January 14 and her body had been dumped in the jungles.The juvenile, whose bail plea has been rejected by the concerned court last month, is the main accused in kidnapping and sexually assaulting the girl.The crime branch had put its investigations on hold and was awaiting an order of Supreme Court which had been petitioned by the victim’s side for shifting the trial from Kathua and the accused side pleading for handing over the investigation to the CBI.In its May 7 order, the apex court said “the pivotal fact around which the controversy centtres is the abduction, rape and murder of an eight year old girl. An FIR was lodged at Hiranagar Police Station, Kathua…The investigating agency, namely, the Crime Branch, which took over the investigation on January 22, 2018 from the local police has already filed the charge sheet on April, 9 in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kathua in the State of Jammu and Kashmir”.However, the court did not say anything about handing over the case to the CBI and transferred the case to District and Sessions judge at Pathankot in Punjab, 30 km from Kathua.

Modi govt will render justice to those who suffered during anti-Sikh riots: Ram Madhav

The NDA government has taken steps and “will do its best” to render justice to each and every family that has suffered during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, a senior BJP leader has said.”I stand before you to assure the community that we will do our best to render justice to each and every family that has suffered during those unfortunate years,” BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said amidst applause from the few hundred Sikh Americans who had gathered in a Maryland suburb of Washington DC to celebrate Vaisakhi.He said the NDA government has decided to go to any extent to punish the guilty in the crimes that were perpetrated against the Sikh community during the 1984 riots.The Justice Dhingra Commission is actively looking into 186 serious cases of crime against the Sikh community in 1984, he said, noting that a number of FIRs have been filed again.”In fact, arrest warrants have been issued against the leaders who were in the forefront of this whole crime against the community,” he said.Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a special message, said that observing the Vaisakhi festival abroad is a glowing sign of the traditions and the values that the Sikh community continues to cherish.”We are proud of the achievements of the Sikh community in North America, which has contributed significantly to the growth and prosperity in its adopted home. It is commendable that the community has also preserved its traditions and ethos, and is a living bridge with India,” he said.Madhav also said that Indian-Americans are playing a pivotal role in building India’s strategic ties with the US.”We are not just political, strategic allies, we are natural allies because we are two people who share a very strong bond between us,” he said.”People of Indian origin who live in this country are an important pivot of this relationship. We value your contribution to strengthen this relationship,” he said.

After Karnataka, Telangana one of the focus states for BJP

With the election process in Karnataka coming to a close, Telangana would be one of the focus states for BJP and the party was gearing up for the polls in 2019, state BJP president K Laxman has said.Legislative Assembly polls in Telangana would be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.”Recently, a meeting was held in Delhi under the leadership of president Amit Shah ji. He focused on Telangana.He clearly told that now elections are over in the states which are bound to take place. Now, the focus will be on Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Orissa,” he told PTI here.Shah is likely to visit Telangana next month to assess the political situation and plan for the elections, he said.Laxman said the BJP is organisationally strong in the state and that it will adopt the model of constituting ‘Panna Pramukhs’ at polling booth level to strengthen itself in the state.’Panna Pramukhs’ is a successful model followed by the BJP in different states in which the incharge of a ‘Panna’ (literal meaning page) reaches out to the voters’ families who are part of his list.”As far as ‘Panna Pramukhs’ are concerned, out of 119 assembly constituencies, nearly 40-50 assemblies the ‘Panna Pramukh’ exercise is over. Rest of the assemblies also, we will finish within one or two months…,” he said.The party is taking other steps as well to boost its organisational strength in the state.BJP would go to the people highlighting the achievements of the Narendra Modi-led government, the funds given by Centre to Telangana in areas like highways, railway projects, Ujwala (free gas connections scheme), he said.It would also highlight the alleged failure of TRS government in Telangana to keep its promises, including employment generation, providing two bedroom houses to poor and distribution of three acres of land to Dalits, he added.The BJP leader said the party would come out with a clear manifesto for various sections, including SCs, backward classes and youth after holding discussions with all sections of society in the state.BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Bihar Minister Mangal Pandey have been given charge of the 17 Lok Sabha seats in Telangana and they would visit the state, he noted.At the time of elections, the party’s central leadership would focus on the states where it is not in power as the respective Chief Ministers would lead the party in states where it is in power, he added.The three-day-old BJP government in Karnataka had collapsed yesterday, minutes before the scheduled trust vote, with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa resigning in a tame anticlimax to what promised to be on the edge of seat political thriller.

Jharkhand to develop Ramgarh’s Chhinnamasta temple on lines of Vaishno Devi, Tirupati

The Jharkhand government plans to take cues from Vaishno Devi temple in Jammu and Kashmir and Tirupati shrine in Andhra Pradesh to develop the Chhinnamastika temple in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district.Chief Minister Raghubar Das, during a review meeting on Saturday, asked the district administration and other government officials to ensure that hygienically prepared food was served to the devotees two times a day at a fixed rate, much like the Tirupati temple in the southern state, an official statement has said.Exhorting officials to visit the temple with families, Das also said the temple in Rajrappa area of the district should also have a cloak room and a queue complex modeled on the lines of Vaishno Devi temple in Katra area of Jammu and Kashmir, it said.The CM asked the Ramgarh administration officials to remove stalls lined outside the temple and build a shopping complex on the premises to accommodate the vendors.Deputy Commissioner Rajeshwari B, who was present at meeting, said a nodal officer has been deployed at the Rajrappa temple to execute the beautification work in the complex and that the shops would be relocated soon, the statement said.Chhinnamastika temple, also known as Maa Chhinnamasta Temple, is one of the state’s six destinations, which is being developed as a global tourist spot by the Jharkhand government.The state has approved a grant of Rs 200 crore for the Rajrappa project, it added.

Meet DK Shivakumar, the ‘man of the match’ in Karnataka Political League: 10 facts

Amid high-octane drama in Karnataka and the subsequent anti-climax at Vidhana Soudha, one thing that stood out was DK Shivakumar’s sheer control over things.The senior Congress leader and former minister in Siddaramaiah government who had predicted BS Yeddyurappa’s resignation before the crucial floor test is being seen as the man responsible for keeping ‘the flock together’ and outwitting the BJP’s strategy. Here are top 10 facts about this ‘man of the match’:1: Simply called ‘DK’ in political circles, Shivakumar is known for his strong belief in numerology and his favourite number 6, a Times of India report said. During the assembly election affidavit, he had reported Rs 589 crore rise in the assets from 2013. 2: Doddallahalli Kempegowda Shivakumar began his political journey in 1985 and in three decades, he has become the go-to person, the master strategist in the Congress. 3: The year 1999 can be seen as the breakthrough time for Shivakumar. He was one of the youngest ministers in Karnataka cabinet.4: This is the first time he has played the role of a troubleshooter for the Congress. Before Karnataka, Shivakumar saved the day for Congress in Maharashtra and Gujarat. ‘I have handled these responsibilities in the past. I did it when Vilasrao Deshmukh was in Maharashtra and there was a crisis. I have taken care of Gujarat MLAs, and I have taken a lot of risk…. My leaders are there, God is there, and justice is there,’ Shivakumar was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.5: It was in 2017, in the month of August, when Shivakumar took over the role of ‘protector’ of 43 Congress lawmakers during the Rajya Sabha elections in which BJP chief Amit Shah had pitted against senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel. 6: The level of Shivakumar’s commitment can be gauged from the fact that for past four days, he hadn’t gone home. That means, for nearly 100 hours, Shivakumar made sure that the all Congress MLAs were safe and present in the Vidhana Soudha just before the floor test. 7: According to an Indian Express report, Shivakumar was carrying a suitcase full of clothes. When Siddaramaiah joked about his clothes, DK said that he hadn’t got time to go home. 8: Though known for harbouring dream of becoming Chief Minister, the 53-year-old Shivakumar has been rather reluctant. When asked about him becoming the deputy Chief Minister, he told DNA, ‘My leaders will do justice.’9: Coming from the powerful Vokkaliga community, Shivakumar set aside his differences with HD Deve Gowda and son HD Kumaraswamy to save the post-poll alliance 10: From his muscle power days to being the ultimate spin doctor, Shivakumar can be the kind of strategist Congress needs at national level.

Congress leaders to meet Rahul Gandhi to discuss power-sharing arrangement with JD(S) in Karnataka

Ahead of HD Kumaraswamy’s swearing in ceremony on May 23, top leaders of the Congress will on Sunday hold discussions with party chief Rahul Gandhi in the national capital to chalk out its strategy and power-sharing arrangement with the JD(S). Senior leaders of the Karnataka Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) are also scheduled to meet today to chalk out modalities of the coalition. The newly-elected MLAs from both the parties are expected to attend the meeting in Bengaluru. According to sources, senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ashok Gehlot will arrive in Delhi today and hold discussions with the party chief.”Everything will be decided in Delhi tomorrow, when the top leaders of the party will hold discussions with Rahul Gandhi,” a Congress leader in Bengaluru said on Saturday.The Congress has extended support to the JD(S) to form a government in the southern state under a power-sharing agreement. While Kumaraswamy will be the chief minister, the deputy chief minister is expected to be from the Congress and a Dalit is likely to be appointed to the post.The three-day-old BJP government in Karnataka collapsed on Saturday with Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa resigning minutes before the scheduled trust vote in the Assembly. Kumaraswamy met Governor Vajubhai Vala soon after Yeddyurappa’s resignation and was invited to form the government. After meeting the governor, Kumaraswamy had announced that the swearing-in ceremony would take place tentatively between 12 and 1.50 pm at Kanteerava stadium on May 21. However, he later in the evening said the ceremony would be held on May 23 as May 21 happens to be the death anniversary of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. “We are going to take oath on Wednesday as Monday is Rajiv Gandhi’s death anniversary. That is not a proper date. In the entire country, all the Congress workers will be attending death anniversary functions. Conducting oath-taking ceremony at that time is not good. In the today’s meeting, we discussed this only. On Monday, we will discuss about the oath ceremony,” Kumaraswamy told ANI.After a meeting with Congress leaders, Kumaraswamy said they also discussed about moving the confidence of motion on May 24.He said he would meet Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on May 21 to extend his gratitude to them. “I will also discuss how many Congress and JD(S) MLAs will become ministers,” said Kumaraswamy.He said a coordination committee would be formed to prepare a common minimum programme to implement the promises made by the two coalition partners.Kumaraswamy said there were no other discussions with the coalition partners other than winning the confidence vote.The newly-formed alliance has claimed support of 117 MLAs in the 224-member House with an effective strength of 221.The political instability in the state stemmed from a split verdict the electorate gave on May 15, with the BJP emerging as the single-largest party but falling short of a majority.The Congress, which finished second with 78 seats, moved swiftly and stitched an alliance with 37-member JD(S), and even backed its leader H D Kumaraswamy for chief ministership, plunging the state into a welter of confusion, with accusations of bribery and poaching flying thick and fast.(With PTI inputs)

As residents of non-regularised colonies expect a grant of a legal title, it shall also help to develop revenue scenario for the authority. There are hundreds of colonies waiting for regularisation, the process was though on hold for implementation of Zonal Development Plan following high court orders. It was thus that the authority has put the work on the fast track and plans for 14 zones are in wait for the final nod. The regularisation though shall also bring in revenue for the authority. “The regularisation of cooperative housing colonies and those of Prithviraj Nagar have been on hold since November, as the process re-commences it shall also bring in revenue for the authority,” says a senior officer at JDA. The authority has also been facing a difficult situation in cash generation following a slump in the real estate market. Regularisation of these colonies can potentially help JDA to raise hundreds of crore in short duration.A major contribution shall come from Prithviraj Nagar that has only 437 of the 850 colonies regularised so far. However, all of these wait for development as authority facing financial crisis has been slow in development of the entire area.

Mumbai Cop injured during duty, dies

A police constable succumbed to his injuries on Saturday after struggling for a week. Sunil Kadam, the deceased, had sustained grievous injuries when a traffic offender attempted to escape while Kadam was escorting him to the Gamdevi police station. On the way to the police station, the traffic offender crashed his bike against a bench in an attempt to escape from Kadam.According to the police, Kadam and others were posted at the Pedder Road on May 11. Around 2.30 am, they had stopped three men on a bike as a digit was missing from the number plate. The bikers were unavailable to provide satisfactory answers when asked for their legal documents.Kadam sat on the bike and asked the bike rider, Sirajuddin Shaikh (24), to drive him to the police station. However, Shaikh took a U-turn instead began to move towards Haji Ali, disobeying Kadam. Shaikh started riding rashly while hitting Kadam and the bike crashed into a bench in the process, injuring both.They were rushed to the Bombay hospital immediately. Kadam had suffered injuries to his head, neck, and legs.”He was hospitalised and the doctors and our department tried a lot to help him but unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries,” said Dnyaneshwar Chavan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 2).

Newly-formed JMC panels all about influence & caste equation

The functioning committees of Jaipur Municipal Commission (JMC) have been formed keeping in view the upcoming assembly elections. In the selection of the committee chairman, councillors’ influence in the field has been kept in mind with caste equation. The effect of Mayor on the formation of the committees clearly shows that two of the three councillors, who were said to be lobbying against Lahoti, have not been made the chairmen. While a councillor becomes the chairman on the strength of his organisational approach.The mayor has not taken into consideration the suggestions of three party legislators, including a cabinet minister, out of nine legislators in committees formation. In the Sanganer assembly constituency, the two committee chairmen have been nominated by the mayor himself. Sanganer MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari is currently sidelined in the party. So his opinion was not taken. Even in Vidyadhar Nagar area, the recommendation of local MLA Narpat Singh Rajvi was not considered for committee chairman. Mayor has made Gopal Krishna Sharma, chairman, out of his own choice. While Bhagwat Singh Dewal and Sanjay Jangir are BJP’s Jaipur city unit president Sanjay Jain’s choice. Jain is the probable candidate from Vidyadhar Nagar area in upcoming assembly elections and he is engaged in election preparations in the constituency. Therefore, using his influence, he appointed two councillors as chairmen. On the other hand, fearing to lose in assembly elections, BJP’s outgoing state president Ashok Parnami got independent councillor Santra Verma as chairman. Verma contested as a BJP rebel candidate in 2014 municipal elections and became a councillor for the second time. She was elected a councillor on the BJP ticket before. Verma’s ward has about 24,000 voters and she has a strong influence on them. In the upcoming assembly elections, Parnami doesn’t wants to lose from Adarsh Nagar, therefore he got Verma nominated. Verma has been given an important slum development committee. Anil Sharma, Vishnu Lata, and Bhagwat Singh Dewal were lobbying against mayor Lahoti. The three councillors had signed a proposal made by the BJP councillors against the mayor. Mayor excluded Anil Sharma and Vishnu Lata from the committee chairmanship. Dewal became the chairman on Jain’s influence. The mayor’s residence is in Sanganer assembly area and he wants to contest the assembly elections from there and he has already started the groundwork for the polls. Lata is also involved in the race for assembly ticket. By killing two birds with one stone, the mayor has reduced Lata’s stature by not making him a chairman while weakening one of his opponents.It’s Lahoti’s timeThrough the panels, mayor also responded to Industry Min Rajpal Shekhawat. Shekhawat was not in favour of Lahoti becoming mayor. After municipal polls, Shekhawat had lobbied against Lahoti and had made Nirmal Nahata mayor instead. BJP removed Nahata in ’16 and had made Lahoti the mayor. He has taken his revenge by giving a lesser importance panel to Shekhawat’s close aides.He is the mayor, he remember thingsSanganer: Vishnu Lata wants to contest from Sanganer assembly constituency. Mayor is also in the legislator’s race for Sanganer. Lata had lobbied against the mayor, so he was not given any panel. Vidyadhar Nagar: Mayor can also claim the spot from Vidyadhar Nagar assembly constituency. Therefore, he did not nominate the councillors, who are closed to local MLA Narpat Singh Rajvi. Koshal Kishore Sharma and Dinesh Kanwat are strongest councillors they are not given any panel. Malviya Nagar: Anil Sharma was lobbying against Mayor. Sharma has not been appointed as chairman. Civil lines: Bhawani Singh Rajawat wants to contest assembly election from Vidyadhar Nagar area. Rajavat could increase the importance of meeting the important committee. Therefore, he has been nominated as chairman of the lesser importance namely Water Harvesting Committee.

Gujarat Government witnesses drop in RTE applications from special category students

Data released by the state government has shown a significant drop in the number of applications received from students under the special category for admissions under the Right to Education (RTE) Act this year. Applications received under RTE from special students are 457 as against 1,432 last year.The report further reveals an alarming drop in the number of special students who received admissions this year. While 13 applications were received from children with HIV and four had made it to the final admission list last year, 21 applications have been received in the same category this year and only one student has secured admission.The state government had last year extended its reach to students belonging to different categories with an aim of inclusive education.The students included orphans, HIV affected children, children of migrating labourers, mentally challenged, children with special needs, etc. However, after round one of admissions, nearly 30,000 seats remained vacant and nearly 80,000 students got admission. While the state government cites school preference as reason for vacant seats, experts view this as a major matter of concern.Only one child secured admission of the 19 children of martyr soldiers, whereas of the 64 children of migrating laborers, only eight secured admission. A researcher working for the cause of RTE implementation in the state feels that since the state government did not accept rent agreement this year, a major chunk of those including migrating labourers were left out.Speaking about the numbers, SP Chaudhary, Deputy Director, Primary Education said, “There is not much of a difference in number of applications. The reason that less students have got admissions is that we have become very stringent in terms of scrutinizing the documents. Also, the reason for nearly 32,000 seats going vacant is that many parents did not fill school as per their choice. For example, a school has five seats and preference for that school is by 15 applicants, only five would get admission. Nearly 60,000 students got admissions as per their preference.”

Havana Plane Crash: Cuba confirms 110 killed in country’s deadliest air disaster since 1989

Cuban authorities said the fiery crash of an aging Boeing passenger jet on Friday shortly after takeoff from Havana had killed 110 of the 113 on board, making it the Caribbean island’s deadliest air disaster in nearly 30 years.Flags flew at half-mast in Cuba on Saturday marking the start of two days of national mourning while authorities worked to recover evidence from the site of the crash and to identify the crash victims. Fifteen have been identified so far and one black box retrieved.Authorities told a news conference on Saturday at Havana airport that 99 of the passengers killed on the domestic flight to the eastern city of Holguin were Cuban, while three were foreign tourists – two Argentines and a Mexican. Another two were Sahrawi residents in Cuba.The six Mexican crew members aboard the nearly 40-year-old Boeing 737, leased by Cuban flagship carrier Cubana from a small, little-known Mexican company called Damojh, were also killed.Ten Nazarene pastoral couples returning home after a retreat were among the victims, the Cuban Nazarene Church said.Three Cuban women survived the crash, but are still in critical condition, said the head of the hospital where they are being attended.”My daughter is a fighter, she’s strong, she’ll save herself,” said Amparo Font, the mother of 23-year old survivor Gretel Landrove, with a trembling voice and tears welling.Distressed relatives cried and hugged one another outside the morgue, where they gave information on loved ones to authorities to aid in the identification process. “This is a very unexpected death, she didn’t deserve it. My grandmother was a strong person,” said Katherine Lucia Martinez, 18, bursting into tears and clinging to her father.Her 60-year-old grandmother was among the dead, and she was waiting with other relatives of the deceased at a Havana hotel for an update from authorities.President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Saturday visited the morgue, a day after reviewing the site of the crash, which is the first big test of his presidency after taking the reins from Raul Castro last month.Some locals who saw the crash say one of the engines appeared to have caught fire before the plane hit the ground.”The plane was on fire, it flipped and then nosedived,” said farmer Marino Perez Alvaredo.Cubana leased it less than a month ago, Transport Minister Adel Yzquierdo said on Saturday, at a time when it was struggling to meet demand for flights and was serving many domestic routes by bus instead.Earlier this month, the company was ordered to suspend flights of its six Russian built AN-158 aircraft, of which most had reportedly already been grounded, according to state-run media.Cuba often resorts to leasing due to the decades-old US trade embargo which makes it difficult to acquire planes, Yzquierdo said.It was unclear whether Cuba had worked before with Damojh which operates just three planes, according to the Mexican government.A pilot who used to work for Damojh was quoted on Saturday by Mexican newspaper Milenio criticizing the company for lack of adequate maintenance of planes.”I experienced several incidents in this company, like engine failure or the electrical system went when we took off from Mexico on one occasion,” Marco Aurelio Hernandez was quoted as saying. Damojh declined to comment.Cuban investigators have so far recovered the cockpit voice recorder in “good condition,” Yzquierdo said, and are still looking for the flight data recorder.Mexico has said it will also send a team of investigators from its Directorate General of Civil Aeronautics.The crash was the worst in Cuba since a Soviet-made Ilyushin-62M passenger plane crashed near Havana in 1989 killing all 126 people on board and another 14 on the ground.”For the love of god, I never thought I would see this,” said Caridad Miranda, 45, whose sister and niece died in the crash. “They should have checked that plane well.”

Man held for videographing woman inside washroom in Cuffe Parade

The police have arrested an 18-year-old boy for allegedly videographing a woman inside a toilet of a commercial building in Cuffe Parade.The accused, Sarfaraz Shaikh, allegedly peeped from the bathroom window to videotape the woman while she was using the washroom on Thursday.According to the police, the woman who works in the building noticed a movement near the bathroom window while coming out from the bathroom. She immediately alerted her seniors and colleagues who conducted a search to finally get to the accused.”On scanning his mobile phone, the colleagues of the victim found few pictures and a video of the victim while she was changing her clothes inside the washroom. Fearing that it could be misused and made viral, the victim deleted it from the mobile phone and informed us. We immediately reached the spot and took him in our custody. Following her complaint, we have registered an FIR against him and he has been arrested,” said a police officer from the Cuffe Parade Police Station”We are scanning his mobile phone to ascertain if he has shot similar photos or videos of other girls in the past. He might have deleted the media file but we will send it to the forensic laboratory to retrieve them,” the officer added.

Rajasthan has long history of defections, minority govts

Notwithstanding the Karnataka drama, Rajasthan too has a chequered history when it comes to formation of minority governments and the defections that take place thereof. From Mohan Lal Sukhadia and Bhairon Singh Shekhawat to Ashok Gehlot who’s presently playing a critical role in formation of a Congress-backed government in Karnataka, have triggered defections in opposition camp to win the number game in the Vidhan Sabha.The first instance was witnessed in 1962 when the Congress led by Sukhadia notched up 88 MLAs – one short of simple majority in the 176-member House. An Independent MLA from Rajargh joined the party to help form the government, then.The scenario, however, was little different in 1967 when in the House of 182, the Congress had 89 – three short of a simple majority. Sukhadia who was a shrewd politician masterminded the defection of some MLAs of Swatantra Party and managed to wean independent support to ensure the formation of his government. These were the days preceding the anti-defection law but stalwarts like late Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and Ashok Gehlot knew how to circumvent the anti-defection law.In 1990, The government of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat was reduced to a minority government with just 85 MLAs in the 200-member Assembly.But Bhairon Singh being a master manipulator split the 55-member Janata Dal and the splinter group called Janata Dal (Digvijay Singh) joined the government. Again in 1993, Bhairon Singh’s acumen came to the rescue of the BJP. The party could win only 96 seats. However, this time it was the Congress infighting that helped Bhairon Singh cobble up a rag-tag coalition with the help of 10 independent MLAs.In 2009, it was the turn of Ashok Gehlot who lured 6 MLAs of BSP proved to be the proverbial low-hanging fruit for Gehlot who not only engineered their defection from the parent party but also got them enrolled as members of the Congress to take the party’s tally to 102.

Tripura announces women reservation in govt jobs

The Bhartiya Janata Party-led government in Tripura has announced new recruitment policy that will ensure reservations for female candidates in government jobs.”We have canceled the existing recruitment policy and for better transparency and fairness in government recruitment, the Cabinet has accepted new recruitment policy. This essentially is for being fair and transparent.”There should not be any partisan and the deserving candidates should get the job and be part of the administration. It was there in our vision document and so this government for fairness in recruitment has accepted new policy,” Education and Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath declared during a press conference at the secretariat.He added that his government has annulled the earlier employment rules framed by the previous Left Front government.Nath, accompanied by Agriculture and Transport Minister Pranajit Singha Roy said, “The earlier government while recruiting employees has done partiality and ignored quality candidates. From now on, a written examination would be done for recruiting employees for the group ‘C’ and group ‘D’ posts.”Another important decision taken by the Cabinet was to reserve ten percent of the post in the police for women.Nath said, “There shall be ten percent reservation for women in the police force at all levels under Home department. Till date in this state, there was no reservation for women in the recruitment of police but the present government has taken this decision to reserve ten percent for women in all posts of the police force.”The Cabinet meeting was chaired by Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, who also holds the home portfolio.The minister said that to recruit government employees for the group “C” and group “D” posts a separate institution would be constituted and the existing Tripura Public Service Commission would be further strengthened for selecting best candidates for the required government posts.The BJP government on Saturday also decided to enhance the salaries and allowances of the judicial officers with effect from January 2016.

Mumbai Session court grants bail to 18-yr-old rape accused

A session’s court recently granted bail to a 18-year-old boy accused of raping a woman, upholding that the woman was much older than the boy and was matured enough to understand the consequences of the act.The Dindoshi court added that the medical reports of the woman do not show any damage to her internal organs, thus establishing that it was not a forceful act.The order read as, “The charge sheet is filed in the case. The boy was arrested on December 25, 2017, after the woman had filed a police complaint against the boy alleging that he raped her. However, the victim is a major lady. She knows what is good and what is bad and the consequences of her act. Thus, the boy deserves to be released on bail.”According to the accused, Suraj Pawar, there was a consensual relationship between the accused boy and the woman and the act was not forceful.”There was neither any force nor a fraud in the relationship. The victim has not extended any threats to the complainant. Also, the medical reports show that it was a consensual sex and that the accused never forced himself on her,” it added.The woman had alleged that Suraj, the accused, had suddenly entered the victim’s house and tried to force himself on her without her consent on December 24, 2017.The prosecution had opposed the bail, stating that if the accused was released on bail, he will tamper with the evidence and attempt to threaten the victim.DETAILSCourt added that the medical reports of the woman do not show any damage to her internal organs, thus establishing that it was not forceful The accused has said that there was a consensual relationship between the two

Not only humans, deadly storm affected birds too

While the recent storm in Rajasthan resulted in the loss of human life and damage to property, the winds have played havoc on the lives of birds at the world-renowned Keoladeo National park. Several trees have been uprooted resulting in the destruction of scores of nests of resident bird species. Moreover, even ground dwellers have faced the brunt as reports of chicks being flown away in the storm has reached the forest officials.The storm covered many parts of the Bharatpur district and caused disruption in normal life. While several houses in the rural areas were damaged, the nests of birds in Keoladeo were literally thrown to the ground due to the strong winds. “During the patrolling after the storm, we found that several nests with eggs or hatchlings were on the ground. Moreover, several nests were missing from their location as well and we suspect that they have been carried away by strong winds,” officials said.Moreover, even the ground-dwelling species also had the worst of the time. “Our staff had identified various places where the ground-dwelling birds had made nests or laid eggs. We keep an observation on these nests also which is a practice with our staff. However, after the storm, most of the eggs were found missing. It is believed that they have got damaged in the storm. A few eggs were found broken as well,” officials said.Though the damage has not been assessed, the department officials claim that the toll would have been higher is the storm had hit a month back. “There were migratory birds till April in the park. If similar climatic conditions would have happened then, there would have been a huge loss in the bird life of the park. However, the timing had an advantage as well. Most of the dykes here do not have water as it has evaporated and thus there are wide open spaces devoid of trees. The adult birds have been seen in these areas since the storm which suggests that the loss of life of adult birds is not a major one,” officials said.

The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), on Friday, arrested six-persons from the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus in Kurla for allegedly smuggling 7 kilograms of gold in the form of gold bars, amounting to a total of Rs 2.3 crore.According to the DRI officials, a trap was laid at LTT when they had intercepted four persons(carriers) who were carrying the 60 gold bars (each weighing 100 grams) that were concealed in specially made cavities inside the belts of their trousers. Following their arrest, it was revealed that the gold was smuggled in from the Indo-Nepal Border but has originated in Dubai. The carriers had reached Patna by bus and then arrived in Mumbai via train. The carriers were promised a remuneration of 20,000 each for smuggling the gold into India.They had gone to Dubai in search of odd jobs when they were recruited into the racket.”We interrogated them to understand who the kingpin of the smuggler’s gang was. Subsequently, a jeweller who was to procure the gold and sell it in the local market and his employee who had come to Kalbadevi to receive the gold from these carriers were nabbed,” said a DRI official.”All the six accused have been arrested and sent to judicial custody until June 2,” he added.

Delhi Minorities Commission chairman writes to L-G Anil Baijal

Delhi Minorities Commission (DMC) chairman, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan wrote to Lt Governor Anil Baijal on Saturday stating that the Delhi Police have not been taking action on their notices.Last October, a police officer had misbehaved with the former head of Haj Committee, India, Tanveer Ahmad, when he arrived at a Ramlila event as a chief guest at the invitation of the organisers. A complaint was lodged with the Delhi Police but, despite reminders, no action was taken in the case.Suresh Srivastava, a friend of Tanvir Ahmad and former national coordinator of the BJP, complained to the Delhi Minorities Commission (DMC), which later wrote to the Delhi Police Commissioner about the turn of the event at the hands of a police officer. The DMC had asked for action on the earlier complaint of Ahmad.When no reply was received from the police, a reminder was again sent but till date, no reply has been received. In the meanwhile, Suresh Srivastava approached Syed Ghayural Hasan, chairman of the National Commission for Minorities, who also wrote to the police commissioner but he too seemingly has not received any reply in the matter.Reacting to this behavior of the Delhi Police, DMC chairman Zafarul-Islam Khan wrote to Baijal about the behaviour of the department. Dr Khan asked the L-G, as the constitutional head of Delhi state, to direct the Delhi Police to respect and honour the minority commission, which is a statutory body.WHAT HAPPENEDLast October, a police officer had misbehaved with the former head of Haj Committee, India, Tanveer Ahmad, when he arrived at a Ramlila event as a chief guest A complaint was lodged with the police but, despite reminders, no action was taken

Sensitise schools on HIV-infected kids, say experts

As many parents are apprehensive about revealing that their kids are HIV infected, the education department of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will have to come up with certain guidelines and programmes for sensitization for the schools which will be admitting HIV infected kids under the 25 per cent quota of the Right to Education (RTE) Act, opined experts.The state government had come up with a revised rule, on Wednesday, which included HIV infected kids in the 25 per cent quota for RTE admissions. Now, the HIV affected kids are entitled to free education, provided they submit their medical certificate.However, many parents fear that their child may be discriminated against if they reveal that they are HIV infected.Dr. V. Sam Prasad, the Country Program Director of AIDS Healthcare Foundation India, said, “The lack of sensitivity may arouse discrimination for sure. Even before guidelines are implemented, efforts need to be made by the education department for sensitizing the school staff, other children and parents.”Rohan Bhat, the chairperson of Children’s Academy in Malad, said, “It is very important that all schools have some guidelines from the education department on how to treat children with HIV. It is a welcome move by the government of helping these children by providing free education, but we worry how other parents will react to it now.”Mahesh Palkar, BMC’s education officer, said, “We are expecting some guidelines from the government for schools on how to handle kids having HIV.”REVISED RTE QUOTAThe state government had come up with a revised rule, on Wednesday, which included HIV infected kids in the 25 per cent quota for free education under the RTE Act

Gurjars call off stir, agree to 16-point government proposal

The Gurjar reservation agitation committee has dropped its agitation plans after rounds of discussion and a 16-point agreement with tri-minister committee. The agitation for sub-categorisation of OBC reservation was announced at the Gurjar Mahapanchayat held at Bayana, Bharatpur, on May 15. The mahapanchayat had voted to commence the agitation from May 23 after rejecting the state government’s proposal.However, days before the agitation, the committee of cabinet ministers, Rajendra Rathore, Arun Chaturvedi and Hem Singh Bhadana was able to convince the Gurjar leaders to accept an agreement after hours of discussion held on Saturday. The discussion also moved from secretariat to chief minister’s residence for a while before the agitation leaders accept the proposal. “We have signed on an agreement and its does not need the approval of the mahapanchayat,” said an agitation leader. “Now, a memorial ceremony shall be held on the day to remember those to have laid their lives for the cause,” he said about the new plans for the day.It was on May 23 in 2008 that 18 people were killed in police firing at Karvadi village of Bayana during the first major agitation of the Gurjar community for reservation. The total number of casualties till now has reached 72 and the issue continues and thus not all agitation leaders are convinced by the government assurance.The last agitation had ended after agreement on 5 percent reservation to the Gurjars and five other communities by sub-categorisation of the OBC reservation in the state. The bill passed by government for the purpose though was rejected by high court as government had increased the quota of OBC and total reservation exceeded 50 per cent. “The state government had moved a SLP in the Supreme Court and if its submission is upheld by the apex court, the quota shall be considered implemented in all vacancies being released in the meantime,” read the first point of the agreement signed on Saturday.The agreementThe last agitation had ended after agreement on 5 percent reservation to the Gurjars and five other communities by sub-categorisation of the OBC reservation in the state.

Sharpshooter arrested in lawyer’s murder case in South-East Delhi

A 36-year-old sharpshooter of a famous gang in Bihar has been arrested from Jamia Nagar area of South-East Delhi on Friday evening.Wazir Ahmed was an accused in the murder case of an ex-public prosecutor and senior advocate at Gopalganj area of Bihar in 2015.According to the police, Ahmed, a sharpshooter of Mintoo Singh’s gang, had murdered Tripurari Sharan Sharma, ex-public prosecutor and senior advocate in 2015.”We had information that on Friday evening, Ahmed would come to Jamia Nagar to meet his acquaintance with an illegal weapon. Following which, a trap was laid at Sailing Road. At about 5.30 pm, one person was seen coming from Kalindi Kunj side,” said Chinmoy Biswal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South-East).On spotting the police party, he tried to flee away. After a brief chase, Ahmed was nabbed. A loaded country-made pistol with 5 live cartridges was recovered from his possession.During the investigation, the accused revealed that due to his illiteracy and poor family condition, he came in contact with some local criminals and started committing robberies and extortion.”In 2002, in order to develop his supremacy in the area, he threatened the locals and fired bullet rounds in the air for which he went to jail and after coming out, he went abroad. Later in 2007, he returned and joined Munna Mishra’s gang and along with his associates committed extortion and highway robberies in Gopalganj,” said Biswal.Later, the accused had a fallout with Mishra and joined another gangster Mintoo Singh’s gang. In 2015, Singh along with Ahmed hatched a conspiracy to eliminate Sharma as Singh had old enmity with the lawyer.On August 30, 2015, Ahmed along with his associate shot dead Sharma in his chamber in Gopalganj town.”After that, he fled to Mumbai and later was declared a proclaimed offender by the court. After getting to know that Gopalganj police had information about him being in Mumbai, he dropped his family back home and came to Delhi last week seeking a hideout,” said Biswal.CHASE AND CATCHAhmed tried to flee after spotting the police.

Doctors unveil the vicious cycle of vision loss & stress

In a recent study, published by doctors from Germany and India, it has been confirmed that while prolonged mental stress is clearly a consequence of vision loss, it may also aggravate the situation.The study published in EPMA Journal suggests that continuous stress and cortisol levels negatively impact the eye and the brain. The doctors have concluded that stress is both a consequence and cause of vision loss. A doctor from All India Institute of Medical Sciences explains that vision loss is considered to be irreversible and often progressive. Thus, patients suffering from vision loss go through mental stress due to worries, anxiety, or fear and sometimes depression. This leads to lowering of intraocular pressure and thus forms a vicious cycle which further creates more stress.”All the literature put together suggests that there is definitely a psychosomatic (caused by stress) component to vision loss, not only as consequence, but fundamentally related to cause also. Stress and its close relation with Glaucomatous vision loss open new possibilities for glaucoma treatment,” says Dr Muneeb Faiq, Clinical Researcher, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences.Experts also reveal that if patients are informed of the diagnosis and poor prognosis, they typically experience anxiety and fear. This creates a psychological double-burden; not only do they experience fear, inducing difficulties in daily life with reading, orienting, or mobility, but a negative prognosis typically has a severe emotional impact, leading to worries, anxiety, fear, depression, and social isolation.”With the identification of stress as an intimate aetiology for vision loss, adjunct therapies like brain stimulation, meditation, relaxation response, music therapy, neuro-restoration, anxiety management, social support could find their way into management of ophthalmic diseases,” said Dr Faiq.VISUAL CHALLENGEA study suggests that continuous stress and cortisol levels negatively impact eye and brain.

A big, open classroom awaiting you outside university: PM tells students in Jammu

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today told students in Jammu that their real test would begin in a “big, open classroom” awaiting them outside their university, and asked them to set goals for 2022, when India celebrates 75 years of independence.Addressing the students at a convocation at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST) here, Modi said: “I urge you to keep in mind 2022, and you and your university should set some goals for yourself.” He said the university and the students should carve out a place for themselves in farm innovation, and added that goals will be important when India celebrates 75 years of freedom.He told students they “are awaiting a big, open classroom outside this university and that is where the real test lies.” The prime minister, who was on a day-long visit to the state’s three regions – Leh, Kashmir and Jammu, laid emphasis on development of agriculture and horticulture in the country.Modi said the introduction of technology is bringing new opportunities and called for the implementation of a “new culture” in the agriculture sector in the “changing times”.He said his government at the Centre is encouraging technological intervention in farming. “As many 12 crore soil health cards were distributed in the country and 11 lakh farmers got this card in J&K,” the prime minister said.He said “Per Drop More Crop” should be the mission.In the past four years, Modi said, nearly 24 lakh hectares of land was brought under the micro and sprinkler irrigation system and the Cabinet has sanctioned Rs 5,000 crore for it.He said the decisions are aimed at doubling the income of farmers.Modi told the university students that India expects them to deploy scientific approach, technological innovation and research towards the development of the agriculture sector.He also gave gold medals to five students at the convocation. Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra, the chancellor of the university, and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, the pro-chancellor, attended the hour-long ceremony. Pradeep K Sharma, the university’s vice chancellor, said: “It is indeed a great occasion that the prime minister is visiting the campus for the sixth convocation and has accepted the request to be the chief guest which will have a long lasting influence on students of the university.” A total of 444 degrees were conferred on candidates who had successfully completed their study programmes during the convocation, which began at 5 pm at Baba Jitto Auditorium in Chatha area.The SKUAST has been ranked 10th among all state agricultural universities in India in 2017-18. It was placed second in getting maximum numbers of ICAR-JRF fellowships in veterinary sciences for the year 2016-17.Sharma said the university has established a placement and counselling cell for developing soft skills in students.

HD Kumaraswamy to take oath as Karnataka CM on May 23, gets 15 days to prove majority

With the fall of BJP’s three-day-old government in Karnataka, H D Kumaraswamy heading the Congress-JDS coalition is set to become the chief minister for a second time on May 23.Governor Vajubhai Vala today invited Kumaraswamy, who is the leader of Congress-JD(S) joint legislature party, to form the government.”On the invitation of the Governor I have met him on the basis of the request we had submitted on May 15 for the formation of Congress-JD(S) coalition government….he has invited us to form the government,” Kumaraswamy, who is also state JD(S) chief, said.Speaking to reporters after meeting Vala, he said the Governor has directed him to prove the majority on the floor of the House in 15 days but he would do it much before.After meeting the governor, Kumaraswamy had said the swearing-in ceremony would take place tentatively between 12 and 1.50 pm at Kanteerava stadium on May 21.Also readAfter BJP’s defeat in Karnataka, Akhilesh Yadav says SP undecided on forming allianceBut later tonight, he said the swearing in ceremony would take place on May 23, but did not cite any reasons.A JDS leader said the swearing-in date has been shifted to May 23 as May 21 happens to be the date on which former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was killed in a suicide bombing at Sriperumbudur near Chennai in 1991.Also readKarnataka govt formation: How Congress managed to remain one step ahead of BJP and the lessons from it After a meeting with Congress leaders, Kumaraswamy said they also discussed about moving the confidence of motion on May 24.He said he would meet Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on May 21 to extend his gratitude to them. “I will also discuss how many Congress and JD(S) MLAs will become ministers,” said Kumaraswamy.He said a coordination committee would be formed to prepare a common minimum programme to implement the promises made by the two coalition partners.Kumaraswamy said there were no other discussions with the coalition partners other than winning the confidence vote.His meeting with the Governor came hours after B S Yeddyurappa stepped down as Chief Minister without facing the floor test in the assembly as the BJP fell short of numbers.The post election stitched alliance of JDS and Congress, which claims the support of 117 members, has already staked its claim to form the government and said it would be headed by Kumaraswamy.The third son of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda had earlier headed the BJP-JD(S) coalition government for twenty months from January 2006.Kumaraswamy said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, BSP chief Mayawati, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, Telangana Chief Minister Chandrashekar Rao and several other regional leaders would be invited for the swearing-in ceremony.Asked by when he will prove majority, Kumaraswamy said “As soon as possible we will call the assembly session to prove majority…. though Governor has given 15 days, we will not require that much time.”Expressing apprehension that the BJP would again indulge in “operation Kamala (poaching on MLAs)”, he said “I’m aware of it that they will create problem. JD(S) and Congress leaders will take all precautionary measures for it.”He also ruled out any kind of differences among the party cadres on alliance with the Congress.

PM needs to stop thinking he is bigger than every single institution: Rahul after Yeddyurappa resignation

Shortly after B S Yeddyurappa resigned as the chief minister, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying “he is corruption” as he authorised “buying” of MLAs and hoped the BJP-RSS learns a lesson from Karnataka.Addressing a press conference at the Congress headquarters soon after BJP’s 3-day-old government fell, he said the opposition parties will unite in the coming times to defeat the BJP and the RSS. Training his guns on the prime minister, an aggressive Gandhi said Modi claims about fighting corruption “is a blatant lie” and accused him of not just promote corruption but being “corruption personified”. “The idea that the prime minister spreads around this country that he is fighting corruption is a blatant lie. He is corruption, He is doing everything to subvert this nation and he is doing it across the board,” he said.Gandhi alleged that there are phone conversations of MLAs being attempted to be purchased by the BJP, saying “that was directly authorised from Delhi”. He said the people have seen “how the prime minister directly authorised the buying, purchasing of MLAs in Karnataka, from our party and from the JD(S)”. “In the end, India’s voice and democratic spirit will always triumph over tyranny,” Gandhi later tweeted, saying ‘satyamev jayate’ (the truth shall prevail). Asked what his message was to the prime minister after the Karnataka defeat, the Congress chief said he should understand that he is not bigger than India, its people, the Supreme Court, the members of Parliament and the state Assembly.Also readKarnataka govt formation: Top Cong leaders to meet Rahul Gandhi on Sunday to discuss strategy “The prime minister needs to stop thinking that he is bigger than every single institution in this country. The prime minister needs to understand that he has not only been chosen to lead this country, but also to respect the institutions of this country. “I am doubtful that the prime minister will understand that because he has been trained throughout his life by the RSS never to respect any other institution except the RSS. But that is the message that not me, but the people of Karnataka and the people of India have given to the prime minister,” he said. The Congress leader said he was very proud that the opposition has stood together and defeated the BJP and “we will continue to do” it.”We will protect the voice of people in every state, wherever we feel the BJP is attacking people…The opposition will unite and coordinate and defeat the BJP…We are going to work with the opposition to defeat the BJP,” he said.Noting that he is not a casteist and does not believe in untouchability, Gandhi said the Congress, along with the opposition, will continue to fight the BJP-RSS. He claimed that everybody in this country knows that the prime minister’s model of leadership is not that of a democratic person. “It is that of a dictator. Everybody knows that. You know, I know that. The Supreme Court knows that. Even the prime minister knows that.”Also readKarnataka govt formation: How Congress managed to remain one step ahead of BJP and the lessons from it Asked whether he supports the demand for resignation of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala, he said the bigger issue is that there is no institution in this country that is “immune from the assault of the RSS”. “The governor, with all due respect, has no choice. Even if you were to say, make the governor resign and replace him, the new man will also behave as this man behaves. It is because he has no power any more. The power is now completely controlled by the prime minister and by the RSS. “So yes, it’s a good idea if he resigns, but I can guarantee you that under the BJP rule the next man will do exactly the same thing. That’s the point,” he said.Gandhi accused the BJP-RSS of disrespecting every institution in the country and the mandate of the people and cited the example of the BJP MLAs and the Speaker in Karnataka choosing to leave the House before the national anthem was played. He said the BJP-RSS was “rubbishing” every single institution in this country and disrespecting anybody simply because they happen to be in power. “This is something that the BJP and the RSS do again and again and again. There is no institution in this country that is worthy of the respect of the prime minister, (BJP chief) Amit Shah and the RSS and they believe that every single institution can be destroyed and stepped upon by them. “They disrespected the mandate of the people of Karnataka…I am very proud to say that they have been shown that in India power is not everything, in India money is not everything, in India corruption is not everything, in India the will of the people is everything,” he said.

Wuhan summit brought greater comprehension of issues, says Indian envoy to China

After the Wuhan summit last month, there is greater comprehension about strategic and over-arching issues between the leadership of India and China, Indian Ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale said today.Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping met in April in an unprecedented two-day ‘heart-to-heart’ summit in the central Chinese city of Wuhan to “solidify” the India-China relationship after the Doklam standoff last year. Today, especially after the Wuhan summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping, where our two leaders had several hours of heart-to-heart discussions, specially on strategic and over-arching issues, there is a much greater comprehension of each other amongst the leadership of our countries , Bambawale said.Troops of India and China were locked in the 73-day standoff in Doklam after the Indian side stopped the construction of a road by the Chinese army in the disputed area. Addressing a meeting to commemorate the 157th birth anniversary of India’s poet laureate Rabindranath Tagore at the Indian Embassy here, he said Tagore was fascinated by China and its ancient civilisation. Tagore was one of the earliest modern thinkers of India who understood and comprehended the benefits of mutual understanding and cooperative partnership between India and China, the two great civilisations of Asia, he said.I believe that our job at events like this one today is to expand friendship and understanding between the people of India and China , he said.Through our efforts to remember Tagore, we are doing our little bit for enhancing understanding and trust between our people. This will stand both our countries in good stead and will contribute in making the 21st century an Asian century , he said. A large number of Tagore fans specially students of Peking University, which the poet visited during one of his two visits to China in 1924 and 1929, attended the meeting where some of them also sang his poetry in Chinese. A dance performance was also held. His first visit is described, both in China as well as in India, as a major event in the literary circles of the two countries, Bambawale said.This visit to China left a very strong impression on Rabindranath Tagore, and he made friendships here, especially with the young Chinese poet Xu Zhimo, who was his official translator during the trip , he said. Upon his return to India, he established the world famous Cheena Bhawan at Shantiniketan with the idea that it would be a bridge for intellectual exchanges between our two countries. He appointed Professor Tan Yunshan as the first Director of Cheena Bhawan, who in turn did yeoman service for closer understanding between India and China , he said. Professor Dong Youchen of Centre for South Asian Studies of the Beijing Foreign Studies University made an elaborate presentation about the impact made by Tagore and his poetry on China.

After BJP’s defeat in Karnataka, Akhilesh Yadav says SP undecided on forming alliance

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav today said his party hadn’t yet decided about forming alliance with any party for the coming Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh.Replying to a question at a press conference at Khajuraho, Yadav said no decision had been taken about an alliance with the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, where elections are due by year-end.Talking about the fall of Yeddyurappa government in Karnataka, Yadav said it was the Supreme Court which saved democracy, as the BJP was indulging in horse-trading.There was an anti-BJP atmosphere across the country, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister claimed.Yadav also said that following the developments in Karnataka, the BJP governments in other states which have come to power in a similar fashion (without having a majority) should resign to save democracy and to prove the saffron party’s nationalism and honesty.Infrastructure in the BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh was very poor, and farmers were facing myriad problems, he said.

J&K: Mirwaiz Umar Farooq detained after trying to defy house arrest during PM Modi’s visit

Moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was today detained after he defied house arrest and tried to march towards Lal Chowk city centre here to demand the resolution of the Kashmir issue during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the state. Farooq, who was under house arrest, came out of his Nigeen residence and tried to march towards Lal Chowk, a police official said.He said a posse of policemen, waiting outside his house, took the Hurriyat chairman into preventive custody and shifted him to the Nigeen Police Station.Farooq yesterday said the government should allow the people to assemble at Lal Chowk so that they can convey their ‘Mann ki Baat’ to the prime minister during his visit today.Mr Modi all have been listening to your ‘mann ki baat’ for years now. As you come here tomorrow, allow us Kashmiris to peacefully gather at Lal Chowk so that you hear our ‘Mann ki baat’! It’s just three words– Resolve KashmirDispute,” Farooq had said in his address to Friday congregation at Jamia Masjid here.Separatists under the banner of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) had asked people to observe a complete shutdown and march to Lal Chowk city centre to convey to Modi their demand for resolution of the Kashmir issue.The JRL, which comprises Mirwaiz, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mohammad Yasin Malik, had in a statement said, “India will try to use the visit of its prime minister to mislead the world community and its own people by claiming that people of Jammu and Kashmir are happy being part of India. The ground reality is that the situation in the state is like hell.” Meanwhile, the police also took into custody several leaders and activists of the JKLF after they tried to march towards Lal Chowk.The JKLF activists were taken into custody near Maisuma, a JKLF spokesman said.He said they were immediately shifted to Kothibagh police station.

PM Modi opens new track to Vaishnodevi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi threw open a new seven-kilometre track to Vaishnodevi shrine today, offering pilgrims an alternative route to the temple overlooking Katra township.He opened Tarakota Marg and launched a ropeway to carry goods to the cave shrine of Mata Vaishnodevi through a remote inauguration at Zorawar Auditorium here.Modi said places of worship like Vaishnodevi and Amarnath shrines were important for the state’s economy. “Lakhs of devotees come to these places,” he said. He said the government is making efforts to ensure that pilgrims get better facilities and people of the state are financially benefited.”The train has reached Katra, the base camp of Mata Vaishnodevi. Soon after taking over as a prime minister, I got an opportunity to inaugurate it,” he said.He said Tarakota Marg was the best way to the shrine for the devotees on foot.The prime minister said the Mata Vasihno Devi Shrine Board is also constructing a ropeway to carry pilgrims, on the lines of the one he inaugurated to transport goods.”It is being constructed at a cost of Rs 60 crore. It will completed very soon”, he said, adding it will ferry 800 devotees per hour. J&K Governor N N Vohra, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Union ministers Nitin Gadkari and Jitendra Singh, and state ministers were at the event, part of the prime minister’s day-long visit to the state.Apart from Jammu, he visited Srinagar and Leh.The track inaugurated today between Banganga and Ardhkuwari on the Vaishnodevi route was approved by the shrine board in February 2011.It has cost Rs 80 crore and is meant help decongest the rush of pilgrims on the existing six-kilometre track.A ‘havan’ (special prayer) was held earlier for the launch of the new track. It offers pilgrims a cleaner and a more scenic route with two restaurants and seven toilet blocks equipped with facilities for the elderly and the disabled, shrine board’s additional chief executive officer Anshul Garg said.A medical unit with doctors and paramedics will work round the clock on the route.The entire track is based on a ramp-type design without any steps, and has anti-skid tiles to make it an easier walk, the official said.Sixteen ‘water ATMs’ have been installed, offering free filtered water.

Karnataka govt formation: Top Cong leaders to meet Rahul Gandhi on Sunday to discuss strategy

"Everything will be decided in Delhi tomorrow, when the top leaders of the party will hold discussions with Rahul Gandhi," a Congress leader said. The Congress has extended support to the JD(S) to form a government in the southern state under a power-sharing agreement. While Kumaraswamy will be the chief minister, the deputy chief minister is expected to be from the Congress and a Dalit is likely to be appointed to the post. The Congress has 78 MLAs in the 224-member House and the JD(S) has 37. The H D Deve Gowda-led party had a pre-poll tie-up with the BSP, which has one MLA. ”

The two leaders were stationed in Bengaluru to steer the party’s strategy ahead of the floor test in the Karnataka Assembly today.

Karnataka govt formation: How Congress managed to remain one step ahead of BJP and the lessons from it

Congress lost the battle and won the war. That is in nutshell the synopsis of nataka in Karnataka where Congress denied BJP in their tracks to form government in alliance with JD(S). Congress did lot of positive things during the campaign starting with giving a relatively-free hand to Siddaramaiah to Rahul Gandhi’s much-better messaging.Still plagued by inherent anti-incumbency, Lingayat gambit going wrong and simply getting overpowered by PM Modi’s charisma, Congress ended up second with 78 seats despite getting more votes than BJP. The Congress of the yore, with its sense of entitlement would have shirked from extending support to a regional party to become CM, who incidentally won less than half the seats. But finally, the very real possibility of just being existing in two-and-a-half states probably woke Congress up from their stupor. As soon as it was clear that BJP would be few seats less than the magic figure, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi sprang into action.Soon, the deal with JD(S) was cracked even before Amit Shah and Co. could react. Offering Kumaraswamy the CM post was a masterstroke because it was too good an offer to be let go by JD(S). And in no way could BJP top that offer. However, BJP had more cards up their sleeves. A pliant Governor meant that they had the first bite of the cherry getting 15 days to prove their majority.Congress showed its presence of mind here too. The midnight sojourn by party’s legal eagles to the Supreme Court showed their intent, which gave a positive message to their MLAs in Karnataka. The party managed to ensure that SC asks Yeddyurappa government to take floor test within two days, thus greatly negating the chances of rampant horse-trading. Abhishek Manu Singhvi’s arguments found much greater currency with the SC judges than that of Mukul Rohatgi and AG Venugopal.However, the Governor again pulled a rabbit out of hat by appointing KG Bopaiah as pro-tem speaker by ignoring well-tested convention of seniority. This was promptly challenged by Congress who managed a big concession from SC that the entire floor test would be telecasted. This virtually negated any chances of skulduggery in the Assembly which many feared, given the pro-tem speaker’s history.However, the game was still not over. BJP tried its best to enforce defection in the opposition ranks. Some MLAs got missing, some stopped communicating. But the likes of DK Shivakumar who had herded the MLAs in resorts ensured that the MLAs don’t get swayed. Even those who were ‘missing’ came back before the floor test. Another masterstroke was publication of tapes implicating the big-guns of Karnataka BJP – the likes of Yeddyurappa, Sriramulu and Janardhan Reddy. While BJP has rubbished it as work of mimicry artists, in public perception it would go down as a desperate move by a party which is looking to get power by hooks or by crooks. So rather than BJP getting sympathy for missing out on forming the government despite being the single largest party, they have ended up ons the wrong side of the game. Congress for a long time was living in denial about its position in Indian politics. It felt that BJP’s wins are just a passing phase and they are the natural party of governance. But finally, Rahul Gandhi may be finally getting rid of that grand delusion. Congress is just the biggest block of the opposition, but hardly effective individually. It needs the regional parties to mount a challenge against might of Modi-Shah. For that, they may have to significantly scale down their aspirations in states like Bihar, UP, Bengal, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu etc to get opposition unity. Can they do it may determine the fate of 2019. Intra-party, Rahul needs to go beyond people who are his trusted aides to get the best consultations, which would get his job done. Getting Singhvi to take the lead in SC, who wasn’t aligned to the party in the CJI impeachment case showed Rahul Gandhi’s political maturity. The Congress President has made a series of clever choices in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh which is the next stop of India’s non-stop election caravan. Rahul Gandhi may still be a shadow of PM Modi in terms of popularity, but at least they have learnt to play the ‘game’.They are no longer Jon Snows while countering Chanakya politics.

J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti ‘forgets’ Governor during PM event

ammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti forgot to address state Governor N N Vohra in a gaffe today at an event attended here by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Vohra was among the dignitaries on the dais when Modi dedicated the 330 MW Kishanganga power project to the nation.As the chief minister was about to finish addressing them, she realised her mistake and apologised to the Governor.”I am sorry I forgot to mention the name of Governor sahib. I hope he will excuse me,” an embarrassed Mehbooba said before continuing with her speech.The prime minister was in Srinagar during his day-long visit to the state, covering the three regions Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.Also readProphet Muhammad’s lessons of equality can take country forward: PM Modi in J&KHe reached out to Kashmiri youth and urged them to shun the path of violence and return to regular life so that they could be partners in the development of Jammu and Kashmir and the nation.“Mehbooba Mufti led government in state and NDA government at the centre are continuously trying to bring those youth, who under the influence of foreign propaganda assault their own sacred land, to the mainstream. Peace and prosperity has no alternative. Those youth, who are misguided, should return to their families,” the PM said.PM Modi was addressing the gathering after laying foundation stone for the Srinagar Ring Road and dedicating 330 Mega Watt Kishanganga hydel power project to nation at Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre.“Every stone and every weapon taken up by misguided youth is destabilising their own J&K. We need to take J&K from the atmosphere of instability for future generations. Not only should they connect with Kashmir but they need to connect with the development of the country’s mainstream”, he said.

Royal Wedding 2018: Here’s how Mumbai’s dabbawalas, friends of Prince Charles, celebrated

The famous dabbawalas in Mumbai distributed sweets among the relatives of patients undergoing treatment in government-run hospitals here today to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry of the British royal family and former actress Meghan Markle.The dabbawalas ferry tiffins of home-cooked food to thousands of office-goers in the city every day. Mumbai Dabbawala Association runs a ‘Roti Bank’, through which free-of-cost food is provided to the relatives of patients undergoing treatment at the government-run Tata Memorial Hospital, KEM Hospital and Wadia Hospital.”Today, along with the regular food, we distributed sweets to them. Though we were not invited (for the wedding), this was our way of expressing our happiness on the occasion,” Subhash Talekar, spokesperson of the association said.The relationship of Mumbai’s dabbawalas and the royal family dates back to 2003, when Prince Charles had come on his maiden visit to Mumbai. He had then met the dabbawalas and had lauded their work acumen, accuracy and punctuality, and was impressed with their work culture.”We have an emotional bond with the British royal family. Prince Charles had invited us for his wedding some years ago. The royal family treated us with a lot of respect when we attended the wedding,” Talekar said.Also readRoyal Wedding 2018: How Prince Harry and Meghan Merkel became Duke and Dutchess of SussexAccording to him, the dabbawalas have also sent a salwar kurta and a “pheta” (turban) for Prince Harry and a Paithani saree for Meghan Markle.Some five thousand dabbawalas deliver around two lakh lunch boxes to offices in Mumbai every day.

Jayant Sinha dismisses allegations by JD(S) that DGCA denied permission to chartered flights

The Civil Aviation Ministry today dismissed the allegations by the JD(S) in Karnataka that the Directorate General of Civil Aviation denied permission to chartered flights scheduled to carry the party’s legislators along with those of the Congress from Bengaluru to Kochi, saying no such request was received.The JD(S) had on Thursday alleged that chartered flights that were scheduled to carry its legislators along with those of the Congress were denied permission by the DGCA at the last minute.”DGCA and Air Traffic Control confirm that no requests were received for chartered flights to transport INC and/or JD(S) MLAs. Thus there is no question of anyone not being allowed to fly by central government agencies,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha tweeted this afternoon.The minister had yesterday said that a detailed report had been sought over the allegations.He, however, had asserted that domestic charter flights do not require DGCA approval and that they were free to fly after getting their flight plan approved by local Air Traffic Control.A JD(S) source had said on Thursday, “We are just working out, all flights have been denied permission…flights that were confirmed, last minute there is a problem.” Asked whether the plan was for both the Congress and JD(S) MLAs travelling together, the source had said, “Plan was there….you know what all kinds of things, they are doing.Shortly after the allegations were levelled, a civil aviation ministry official had said that DGCA’s permission was not required for chartered flights operating within India.

‘It’s true I spoke to them’: Yeddyurappa admits he asked Opposition MLAs to cross-vote

In an emotional speech before stepping down as Chief Minister, B S Yeddyurappa today accused the Congress-JDS combine of forming an ‘opportunistic’ alliance and said the popular mandate had been subverted due to their ‘conspiracy.’Yeddyurappa admitted he had expected opposition MLAs to cross vote. To realize the public mandate and with development in mind, he said he asked members for the vote of conscience.”It is true that I had spoken to a few of them (in the opposition),” Yeddyurppa said.Also readDK Shivakumar – the Karnataka Congressman whose resort politics denied Amit Shah twiceStating that BJP believes in the democratic system, he said he had expected MLAs ‘on the other side’ would understand that in today’s political situation,things would change if his government came to power, when the Narendra Modi government is at the Centre. “Some people had agreed to cooperate,” he said. Also readKarnataka is not going to be saffron: Prakash Raj celebrates after Yeddyurappa resigns as CMHe however added, “who am I to question in politics? Expectation is different, there may be differences.” Assuring people that ’till his last breath’,he will travel across Karnataka,he said he would explain the developments and ensure that the party wins all 28 seats of the state in the Lok Sabha elections next year and “give it as a gift to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”Yeddyurappa,who announced his decision without facing the trust vote after not being able to rustle up the numbers, charged that the JDS-combine had kept the MLAs in captivity.Also readNot sure whether to watch Royal Wedding or Karnataka divorce: Twitter reacts to Yeddyurappa resigning as CM”You kept MLAs in captivity. The situation of those MLAs was so pitiable that they could not speak to their families on phone,” he said in his speech after moving the motion of confidence to face the trial of strength.Taunting Congress and JDS, a glum looking Yeddyurappa said “today the family members may be a bit happy as they are seeing them (MLAs).”Governor Vajubhai Vala had given a 15-day window to Yeddyurappa, but it was truncated by the Supreme Court, which ordered that the floor test be held within a day itself.Yeddyurappa said the Congress did not get people’s mandate, nor did the JDS.He said those who traded charges and counter charges, after being defeated in thehustings, were indulging in ‘opportunistic politics’ against the people’s mandate and had come to an understanding.The Governor had invited the BJP as it had emerged as the single largest party, Yeddyurappa said.”I feel today it is like agni pareekshe (trial by fire).It is not the first time. All my life it has been agni pareekshe,” he said, tracing the journey of the BJP when it had only two members and the present state it had reached.”If people of the state had thought for a second and had given us 113 seats, the picture of this state would have changed, and the picture of development would have changed.But God’s will was different” he said on a philosophical note.To Kumaraswamy, he said “I have come through struggle. Someone said if you don’t give me power I will end my life…I won’t say that. Whether I get power or not, I will give my life for the people.”Yeddyurappa said he is indebted to people who have shown him love. “Due to our Congress’ friends conspiracy, the public mandate and democratic system has been subverted,” he said.”In the wake of this, I’m not pressing this motion of confidence, and I will resign. I will go to people against this politics of anti democracy and seek justice. I will directly go to the Governor and submit my resignation as Chief Minister,” he said.

From Mamata Banerjee to Chandrababu Naidu: How opposition hailed BJP’s Karnataka defeat

The three-day-old BJP government in Karnataka collapsed today as Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa quit minutes before he was to face a floor test to prove his contested majority in the hung assembly after which the JD(S)-Congress combine led by the regional party’s chief H D Kumaraswamy was invited to take the reins of power.Capping five days of riveting political and court-room drama, Yeddyurappa announced his decision to quit on the floor of the Assembly after a brief emotional speech rather than face a vote of confidence he was widely expected to lose.Speaking to reporters after the meeting, HD Kumaraswamy, who became the chief minister for the first time in 2006 at the head of a JD(S)-BJP coalition, said the Governor has given him 15 days to prove the majority, “but we will do it much before”.He also thanked the Supreme Court for the “right directions”.Also readDK Shivakumar – the Karnataka Congressman whose resort politics denied Amit Shah twiceA number of leaders of the opposition hailed the BJP’s ‘loss’ in Karnataka and irrepective of political ideologies, came together to hail the decision.West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted, “Democracy wins. Congratulations Karnataka. Congratulations DeveGowda Ji, Kumaraswamy Ji, Congress and others. Victory of the ‘regional’ front.”Also readKarnataka is not going to be saffron: Prakash Raj celebrates after Yeddyurappa resigns as CMBahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati said the use of money power and state machinery is not always helpful, as she asked the BJP to take lessons from the fall of its government in Karnataka. The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also said that with the “defeat” in Karnataka, the BJP’s “dream” of capturing every state has suffered a setback.Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav also lashed out at the BJP after the political developments in Karnataka. “ The BJP must learn a lesson after Yeddyurappa had to resign after he failed to prove majority.” Also readKumaraswamy to take oath on Wednesday as Karnataka CM, Rahul to attend, top opposition leaders invited”The governors appointed by them are under pressure of working according to the party,” she alleged, adding that the dignity of the office they hold is under criticism.Congress President Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “In the end, India’s voice and democratic spirit will always triumph over tyranny. Satyamev Jayate” , while Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said, “Resignation of BS Yeddyurappa as Karnataka’s CM is a true victory for democracy. Entire nation is happy with the current turn of events. As a Chief Minister and a firm believer of democracy, I am expressing my happiness.”Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, too, lashed out at the BJP. Taking to Twitter, Kejriwal said, “BJP’s attempts to subvert democracy have miserably failed in Karnataka. BJP’s lust for power through foul means stands completely exposed. Will BJP learn any lesson now ? India’s judiciary has risen to the occasion and has safeguarded our democracy.”Earlier, the BJP put up a brave face after the resignation with union minister Prakash Javadekar saying the party knows how to “respect democracy” while the Congress, the AAP and other opposition parties said the saffron party’s attempt to “subvert democracy” failed miserably. Javadekar also said the Congress was treating an electoral defeat as victory.Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar claimed that the new government would not last long as it was an “unholy nexus.” The Congress, which finished second with 78 seats, moved swiftly and stitched an alliance with the 37-member JD(S), and even backed its leader H D Kumaraswamy for chief ministership, plunging the state into a welter of confusion, with accusations of bribery and poaching flying thick and fast. The newly formed alliance has claimed support of 117 MLAs in the 224-member House with an effective strength of 221.

Prophet Muhammad’s lessons of equality can take country forward: PM Modi in J&K

Every stone and weapon raised by misguided youths destabilises Jammu and Kashmir and the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said asking the people of state to make efforts to come out of this instability.The prime minister, who is on his first visit to the state after announcing suspension of anti-militancy operations during holy month of Ramzan, said there are foreign powers at play in the state which do not want development of Jammu and Kashmir.Every stone, every weapon, raised by misguided youths destabilises their own Jammu and Kashmir. The state will have to come out of this atmosphere of instability, he said.Modi said the youths need to join mainstream development of India and of Kashmir for their future and that of coming generation.He said the central and the state government have policy, intent and capability to take decisions to solve development issues of the state.”I would urge everyone to channelise their energies in the development of the state. The solution to every problem is only development, development, development,” he said.The prime minister dedicated to the nation the 330-MW Kishenganga Power Project constructed in the Gurez area of Kashmir.Modi also laid the foundation stone for the Srinagar Ring Road at the Sher-e-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC) Srinagar.The 42.1-Km, four-lane Srinagar Ring Road will link Galandar in West Srinagar to Sumbal in Badnipora district.The Ring Road in Srinagar is aimed at reducing traffic congestion in these cities and making road travel safer, faster, more convenient and more environment friendly.”Not a single year has passed since I took over as the prime minister when I did not visit the state,” he said.The prime minister said this month is to remember Prophet Mohammad’s teaching and message.”The lessons of equality and brotherhood from his life can take country and the world forward in true sense,” he said.The prime minister said it was a happy coincidence that the ceremony for handing over the project is taking place in the month of Ramzan.”The project will not only provide free but also sufficient power to the state. A large portion of power requirements of the state are supplied from other parts of the country. This 330 MW project will solve the shortage of power issue to a considerable extent,” he said.The prime minister said the government is trying to provide power to every house in the state under the Saubhagya scheme.He said an important part of Jammu and Kashmir’s development is tourism but it cannot run on old methods.”The tourists now want facilities. They do not want to be stuck in narrow lanes for hours. They want continuous power supply, they want hygiene. Better air connectivity,” he said, adding that the government was working for a modern ecosystem that is required for the development of tourism.”There will be an increase in tourists in J and K with stronger ecosystem. The youths of the state will get new employment opportunity with it,” he said.

DK Shivakumar – the Karnataka Congressman whose resort politics denied Amit Shah twice

Despite the over-the-top celebrations in the Congress camp, which had the unprecedented event of Rahul Gandhi actually showing his face after an election result, there’s no denying that the Congress is infinitely worse off after the results.They are losing the Chief Ministerial seat to a regional party who only won 37 seats. Their own count has gone down from 120 to 78 and the BJP’s has increased from 40 to 104. However, one Congressman who will be laughing from ear to ear, and who’s been hailed as the man-of-the-match – DK Shivakumar.A Vokkaliga leader from the Old Mysore region, his tangles with Deve Gowda are legendary. Now, he is the one who reportedly floated the boat to JD(S) to keep them out of power. As of now, he’s also the man who has stopped BJP state president Amit Shah – twice. The first time was when he managed to keep Congress Gujarat MLAs at a resort to keep the flock together during Ahmed Patel’s Rajya Sabha election. The second time was in 2018 when he did the same for JD(S) MLAs.Also readKarnataka is not going to be saffron: Prakash Raj celebrates after Yeddyurappa resigns as CMFor his efforts during the Rajya Sabha election, he was personally thanked by Ahmed Patel and Sonia Gandhi. During this period, he was raided by IT officials who swooped down on him, his brother and other acquaintances.He first hit the spotlight in 2002, when the Congress-led Vilasrao Deshmukh government was on the brink of a collapse when he moved his MLAs to neighbouring Karnataka. SM Krishna, the former CM, entrusted the responsibility to his young urban Development Minister.Also readNot sure whether to watch Royal Wedding or Karnataka divorce: Twitter reacts to Yeddyurappa resigning as CMHe had made a bid for the KPCC chief’s post before the elections, but the high command gave G Parameshwara an extension since he was viewed as a threat by Siddaramaiah.Before the elections, he had declared that he was an educationist and a social worker, and he and his wife declared combined assets worth Rs 730 crore. He declared assets worth Rs 618 crore, which had tripled since 2013 when he had declared assets worth Rs 215 crore.Also readEvery Indian will name their dog after Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala: Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam He won his first assembly election in 1989 from Santhanur in Kanakpura Taluk by defeating former PM HD Deve Gowda. He was made junior minister with Prisons and Homeguards portfolio, at the age of 29. Even when Gowda came to power in 1994, he was on the few to hold his own.In this election, when Assembly gave a fractured mandate, Shivakumar joined hands with his sworn enemies, the Gowdas to keep the BJP out of power. He even kept JD(S) MLAs at the Eagleton resort for three days, before taking them by bus to Hyderabad.Making sure that no Cong MLAs ‘switched’ over, he even brought back two ‘missing’ MLAS – Pratap Gouda Patil and Anand Singh. He had said from the day one of the crisis: “Not one member from the Congress and JD-S will cross over to the BJP. I have managed Maharashtra and Gujarat MLAs, just wait and watch.’ As soon as Kumaraswamy agreed, Shivakumar was the go-to man to see the political alliance through.As thing stands, it looks unlikely that he will be made the Deputy CM and the post is more likely to go to G Parameshwar, the Dalit leader to avoid too much Vokkaliga representation in the Karnataka government.During the IT raid, an FIR was registered against the minister on allegations of destroying documents. He had told the media: “I am not scared of anyone. Let the case be referred to the Enforcement Directorate or the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) or let them even try to send me to Parappana Agrahara (the central prison in Bengaluru), I will not bend to anyone’s will.”He had alleged that the Centre was using the IT Department to target him and had said: “On August 2, the Income Tax raids had happened. I was just carrying out the responsibility given to me by the party and was hosting the MLAs from Gujarat. That time the I-T Department conducted the raids.”He had bragged: “Jail, CBI, ED and BJP do not make me tense. They still don’t know who I am. From a small village to becoming a politician, I have come so far and succeeded. Why did the I-T Department take seven months to file the FIR? Clearly it is politically motivated. I am an honest taxpayer and even I know the law. I will never evade it.”It looks unlikely that the suave politician will disappear from public memory any time soon.With inputs from PTI
