Ahead of Karnataka trust vote, tension grows in Congress camp over 2 ‘missing’ lawmakers

Tension within the Congress party is mounting as its three legislators — BS Anand Singh and Pratap Gowda Patil — are missing from the Karnataka state Assembly ahead of the crucial trust vote slated for 4 pm. The Congress with 78 legislators has blamed BJP for allegedly exerting pressure and luring the duo.Pratap Gowda Patil was not present in the Assembly when his name was called out for his oath. Sources say the missing lawmakers were at a hotel where attempts are on to bring them around. Anand Singh had alleged that he was ‘kidnapped and threatened with criminal cases’.Karnataka’s former energy minister and Congress legislator DK Shivakumar however, said, “They are with us. They are coming. BJP MLA G Somashekara Reddy is also missing.”Former CM Siddaramaiah had alleged that Singh has been abducted and the Enforcement Directorate was being used against them. Adding to the chorus, senior Congress leader Veerappa Moily today said, “The MLAs missing and are in captivity. Yeddyurappa has tried another ‘Operation Kamala’ but we are confident.”BJP has strongly rejected Congress party’s allegations of bribes and abduction of their legislators. BJP has also denied the purported taped conversation wherein the party leaders are believed to have assured money to Congress legislator BC Patil who is a two time legislator. Union minister Sadanand Gowda in a tweet has also denied Congress party’s charges. ”Mimicry audio’s prepared just to build fake records.”Terror” comedian at the helm of affairs. Congress party’s dirty department is at play,” he said in his tweet.

Congress MLA Anand Singh being kept in captivity by BJP: Siddaramaiah

The BJP has “abducted” and “kept in wrongful confinement” Karnataka Congress MLA Anand Singh by using the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Income Tax (I-T) department against him, the party alleged on the eve of the floor test for the Yeddyurappa government.Speaking to reporters after participating in a demonstration by the Congress against Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala, former chief minister Siddaramaiah said all the 78 legislators of the party and two Independent MLAs were with them.However, he alleged that Singh had been “abducted”.”(Congress MLA) Anand Singh is abducted and kept in wrongful confinement by the BJP people using the ED and the I-T. This is what the BJP people are doing… Shamelessly doing.”(BJP president) Amit Shah did the same kind of manipulation in all the states. They don’t know the Constitution and the law. They don’t know anything other than false propaganda,” Siddaramaiah said.Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said Singh was in Delhi and would be with the party once he is “freed”.”Singh is in Delhi. He is with us. Anand Singh is (at present) in captivity. Once he is free, he will be with us. He is being held hostage, but he is in touch,” he said.On Pratap Gowda Patil, who is also reported to be “missing”, Siddaramaiah said he was with them.”Pratap Gowda Patil came and signed on the paper (list of MLAs) that was submitted to the governor,” he said.Rejecting suggestions of any break in the ranks of the Congress and the JD(S) MLAs, Siddaramaiah maintained that all of them were together.Welcoming the Supreme Court ordering the floor test tomorrow, he said the BJP did not enjoy majority with only 104 seats.”They have won 104 only. They don’t have 112 seats, they don’t have even one seat above 104 because two independents got elected with us. Congress (78), JDS (37) and two independents (independent+KPJP) and BSP 1…total 118. As Kumaraswamy has won two seats it stands at 117.” “All of us are together. We have an understanding. Despite this being reality, despite they (BJP) not asking for 15 days, the governor has given them 15 days to prove majority. What inference could one draw?” Siddaramaiah said.”Governor has followed Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s instructions. If he had followed constitution, he would not have taken such decision,” he said.Targeting the Prime Minister and the BJP president, Siddaramaiah said, “Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are fossils of Hitler in this country. They don’t have respect for constitution or democracy.”It is a murder of democracy. It is a clear violation of the constitution,” he said.He said never in the past had a chief minister been given 15 days to prove majority.Siddaramaiah also termed the Supreme Court verdict as “historic.”

Karnataka Floor Test: Confident of winning trust vote, says Congress

Congress party is in an upbeat mood at least for a moment following the Supreme Court directing floor test to be held at 4 pm on Saturday. Congress party with 78 legislators in the 224 member Karnataka assembly pointed out that it along with 38 members of Janata Dal and Bahujan Samaj Party and two independents will win the trust vote on the floor of house. The party has sent the leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and Rajasthan’s former chief minister Ashok Gehlot are camping in Bengaluru to avoid any lapses.However, the leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and former chief minister Siddaramiah alleged that party’s missing legislator BS Anand Singh has been abducted and kept in the Centre’s captivity in Delhi. Azad claimed that some of the BJP legislators, who faces several graft charges, have been deployed to lure Congress legislators.Azad however, hinted that Anand Singh will come and vote tomorrow. Earlier, Congress had alleged that Centre was using the Enforcement Directorate to fix Anand Singh. Besides, BJP was allegedly luring party legislators by offering bribe. But both Azad and Siddaramaiah have not substantiated their charges by providing proof.Party leaders indicated that legislators, who are currently moved to Hyderabad, will be travelled back to Bengaluru early Saturday morning. The party is taking all the possible care to take its flock together. Congress legislators DK Shivakumar and his brother DK Suresh have been bestowed with the responsibility of taking care of party legislators.Siddramaiah stepped up attack against Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala for dumping the claim jointly staked by Congress and JD(S) combine. Rajasthan’s former chief minister Ashok Gehlot rejected media reports that some eight party legislators were in BJP’s contact. ”It is untrue. All party legislators are together except Anand Singh. Efforts are being made to establish contact with him. We are confident that those elected on Congress ticket will vote for the party,” he noted.Azad elaborated the process of how floor test needs to take place tomorrow. ”We have therefore requested that a pro tem speaker needs to be appointed which will be followed by swearing in of all legislators. We requested that pro tem speaker should be the senior most legislator which is customary. Thereafter, the election of speaker takes place and the whole procedure of vote will take place,” he noted.Former minister Veerappa Moily said ”We have won in the Supreme Court and will now win in the assembly.” He alleged that Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa was insecured and therefore had withdrawn the security deployed at the Eagleton resort where Congress party legislators were camping until Thursday night.

Thane Municipal Corporation gets a standing committee after 15-months delay

Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) finally has a functional standing committee after it received its chairman on Wednesday, an appointment that was pending following a delay of 15 months due to a series of technical glitches in the committee’s formation.On May 16, Shiv Sena’s Ram Repale was elected as TMC standing committee’s chairman. A Thane activist, however, laments that the city functioned well even without the committee as all projects were being cleared by the TMC’s general body in the committee’s absence.Repale was elected unopposed as Narayan Pawar from the Congress took back his candidature the last minute on Wednesday.”Finally we have a standing committee after 16 months,” said Sanjeev Sane of Thane Matdata Jagran Manch (TJMJ). “The formation of the committee was deliberately delayed by the Sena and now we heard even the NCP wants to go to the high court to challenge it,” he said.The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has challenged the formation of the standing committee. “We term this committee as illegal and boycott it. We will go to court,” said Anand Paranjape, senior leader, NCP.In April 2016, the formation of TMC standing committee was challenged in the high court as it did not have the required majority. “The matter is to come up for hearing on June 25 yet they have gone ahead with it,” said Paranjape.The absence of TMC’s standing committee chair, who is also known to hold the treasury of a municipal corporation, however, did lead to a delayed budget this year. As a result, nullah cleaning work begam mid-May as the proposal was approved and contractors assigned in April end.Along with this, chairman of other committees — women and child welfare, education, sports and culture, health committee were also selected on May 16. “This shows that in Thane, things can work out even without these committees,” said Sane.

‘Governor Vajubhai Vala misusing his powers’: Congress, JD(S) protest Yeddyurappa’s swearing-in as Karnataka CM

Barely half an hour after BS Yeddyurappa took oath as the Karnataka Chief Minister for the third time, leaders and workers of JD(S) and Congress protested in and outside the Vidhana Soudha condemning the Governor Vajubhai Kala’s decision to invite Yeddyurappa while neglecting their claim despite having numbers. They stepped up attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah, Governor Vajubhai Vala for the hurried manner in which Yeddyurappa was sworn in.Congress legislators, who are currently camped in the Eagleton resort at the outskirt of Bengaluru, were brought in buses at the Vidhan Soudha to participate in the sit-in dharna at the Mahatma Gandhi statue.Of the 78 legislators, one legislator Anand Singh was missing at the venue though Congress leader DK Shivakumar clarified that he has been in constant touch with the party. He declined to divulge his where about. Anand Singh is a former Karnataka Minister and two-time MLA from Vijayanagar in Ballari. He quit BJP in January 2018 to join Congress ahead of the Assembly elections this year.Veteran leaders including former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, the leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha Gulam Nabi Azad, Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, Rajasthan’s former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, JD(S) CM hopeful HD Kumaraswamy and MPs and legislators from both Congress and JD(S) joined the protest. Kumaraswamy, who had alleged yesterday of BJP splurging Rs 100 crore to lure JD(S) legislators and offering them a post of cabinet ministers, accused the BJP and Modi government at the Centre of misusing institutions of the central government including Enforcement Directorate. He also said that they are threatening the legislators of the Congress and JD(S). ”The BJP and Union cabinet ministers are trying to purchase the combine’s MLAs. Our party will pay attention to safeguard legislators,” Kumaraswamy said. He also accused state governor Vajubhai Vala of misusing his powers in inviting Yeddyurappa to form the government. Referring to the Congress legislator Anand Singh, Kumaraswamy said,” I know they are threatening MLAs. Anand Singh (Congress MLA) told ‘they are using ED, I had a case in ED and they are going to screw me. I’m sorry I have to protect my interest.”Further, the Congress legislator DK Shivakumar told DNA,”I am legislators for 30 years and expecting all vindictive attitude and a lot of problems. Congressmen are well capable to protect themselves.”He further said Congress, JD(S) and independents were united to protest the ” unconstitutional” move by the Governor to administer an oath to Yeddyurappa. ”This is tantamount to encouraging the horse trading,” he feared.Congress legislator DK Suresh admitted that all legislators except Anand Singh were present at the protest. ”Anand Singh is in clutches of Narendra Modi,” he noted.However, BJP legislator B Sriramulu downplayed protest and said Yeddyurappa will certainly prove the majority in the state assembly. He, however, declined to divulge on how BJP will shore up the numbers.

Karnataka Result: 2 Congress legislators believed to be missing; Yeddyurappa meets Governor, stakes claim to form govt

After his election as the BJP’s legislature party leader, BS Yeddyurappa met the Governor Vajubhai Vala and submitted a claim for the formation of Government. ”BJP legislators have elected me as the legislature party leader and I have submitted a letter requesting him allowing him to take the oath. Governor has said he was speaking to legal experts and he has assured to take an appropriate decision,” he noted. Yeddyurappa said he will take oath on May 17. ”100% we are going to form the government,” he told reporters. However, he did not reveal party’s strategy on how the party will make up the deficit of eight legislators to cross the halfway mark in the 222 member state assembly.Yeddyurappa’s view was shared by the former chief minister and union minister Sadanand Gowda. He said the party will form the government as the Congress has been rejected by the voters. ”There are few legislators in the Congress and JD(S) who are unhappy over the post-poll alliance,” he remarked.However, the Congress party has questioned Yeddyurappa’s statement. Congress wanted to know how he can take an oath when the Governor has yet to take a call on separate claims made by the BJP and JD(S) and Congress combine for the formation of government in Karnataka. Meanwhile, about two Congress legislators Nagendra and Anand Singh are missing as they have yet to arrive at the legislative party meeting. However, Congress leader Nasser Hussain denied such reports saying that Nagendra and Anand Singh have been in touch with the party leaders. The Congress with 78 members, JD(S) 38 and two independents are together and now Governor needs to call HD Kumaraswamy to form the government, Congress leaders claimed.Hussian attacked BJP for staking a claim when the party is short of crossing halfway mark.Interestingly, the Congress leader DK Shivkumar said the party was in touch with some BJP leaders. He dropped sufficient hint that Congress and JD(S) combine has plan B ready to foil BJP’s attempt to poach into their territory.

In UP, age proof made mandatory on wedding invitations to curb incidents of child marriage

The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has come out with a novel way to tackle the ‘child marriage’ problem in tribal-dominated regions of the state. The state on Monday announced that the printing of age and date of birth for both the bride and the bridegroom was now made mandatory on invitation cards. The idea was mooted by the Shravasti district magistrate Deepak Meena. “Since printing of wedding invitation cards is a trend, adding the date of birth and age will put an effective check on child marriages in the district,” he said. Meena added that the district administration was preparing a list and would hold a meeting with concerned parties to discuss and implement the plan.Parents will have to submit age proof of bride and bridegrooms to the owners of the printing press for printing of marriage invitation cards. Without age proof, the owners of the printing press will not allow printing of invitation cards.The invitation cards will carry the age and date of birth of both the bride and groom to certify that the marrying couple are adults and legally entitled to tie the nuptial knots. The printing press owners will keep a record of documents furnished as age proof.“The printing press owners have been directed to inform the DM’s office or the local police stations if anyone tried to order for printing cards of their underage son/daughter for marriage,” the DM added.As per law, marriages can only be solemnized once the girl attains the age of 18 years and man 21 years. Meanwhile, the sex ration in the district is one of the lowest in the state with 881 females per 1,000 males.According to the National Family Health Survey-4, the child marriage remained major social evil in the district. Majority of parents prefer to marry off their daughters when they reach 10-12 age-group. About 7.5% in the district bear their first child between age 15 and 19, resulting in delivery-related deaths and malnutrition.“Most of the cases of child marriages are reported from BPL families. They fear that their daughters won’t get grooms if they crossed 14-15 years of age as the demand for dowry will go high,” pointed Dr Jitendra Chaturvedi, a social activist who is educating them through his NGO Dehat to fight the social evil.A senior Social welfare department official said that if the experiment succeeded in Shravasti, the same will be replicated in other backward and tribal areas where cases of child marriages are still being reported.

Congress has no respect for any insitution, be it EC, CBI, Army, ED or VP: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday continued his attack on Congress and accused the party of making fake voter id-cards to win elections.The Prime Minister made the accusations while addressing a public meeting in Chikmagalur in Karnataka, after thousands of fake cards with hologram, lamination machines, and computers were seized by police on Tuesday.”Making multiple fake voter ID Cards to win elections is the tactic of Congress, people should never forgive such party,” said Modi.Modi also claimed that fearing a crushing defeat. “After facing defeats in every election, now Congress party is busy in criticizing the EVMs and the Election Commission. For them EVM and EC are wrong and only Congress is right. Congress has absolutely no respect for many of our prominent institutions. Be it EC, CBI, Army, ED or Vice President’s office. Congress has been on a spree to disrespect and belittle these great institutions.”Earlier in the day, Modi lashed out at Rahul Gandhi after he publicly declared his prime ministerial ambition, and wondered whether the country will ever accept such an “immature and naamdar (famous)” leader for the post.”The naamdar who does not have confidence in his alliance partners… who doesn’t care for Congress’ internal democracy, whose arrogance has reached cloud seven, and is declaring himself that he would be the prime minister in 2019…..willthe country ever accept such an immature ‘naamdar’ leader?” Modi told an election rally.Modi’s attack came a day after Gandhi said he was ready to occupy the prime minister’s post if his party emerged as the “biggest” party in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, making known his ambition for the topmost executive post.Meanwhile, BJP chief Amit Shah also claimed that more than 10,000 fake voter ID cards have been found in the house of Congress leader’s staff in Bengaluru. “They are trying to add thousands of fake names in voter list. In Badami, IT Dept has seized cash in crores. All these show Siddaramaiah’s desperation,” he said.

SC expresses concern over Taj Mahal being infected by insects; pulls up ASI for failing to take steps

The Supreme Court came down heavily on the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) for its failure to take appropriate steps to protect and preserve of the iconic Taj Mahal.The apex court also expressed concern over Taj Mahal being infected by insects and asked the authorities, including the ASI, what steps they have taken to prevent this.”This situation would not have arisen if the ASI would have done its job. We are surprised with the way the ASI is defending itself. You (Centre) please consider if the ASI is needed there or not,” a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta told Additional Solicitor General ANS Nadkarni, who was appearing for the Centre.Meanwhile, Nadkarni told the bench that the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) was considering the apex court’s suggestion to appoint international experts to look into the issue of protection and preservation of Taj Mahal.The counsel for ASI told the court that the problem of insects was due to stagnation of water of river Yamuna.In March this year, the apex court had asked Uttar Pradesh government to place before it a draft of vision document on protection and preservation of the Taj and the environment in the Taj Trapezium Zone, which is an area of about 10,400 sq km spread over the districts of Agra, Firozabad, Mathura, Hathras and Etah in Uttar Pradesh and Bharatpur in Rajasthan.The top court has been monitoring developments in the area to protect the monument, built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1631. The mausoleum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Has India lost its biggest tiger forever? Experts believe Jai is dead

Jai, India’s beloved iconic tiger, is presumably dead! The news comes two years after country’s biggest cat went missing.According to wildlife officials, the probe by the National Tiger Conservation Authority reveals serious lapses on part of the Wildlife Institute of India. The experts feel that going by all accounts, Jai is dead. ‘Considering the available information, and in absence of concrete evidence about the fate of Jai, this committee is of the view that it is very difficult to pinpoint the exact cause for his sudden disappearance, and death can’t be ruled out,’ Mid-Day quoted the report, which is yet to go public.In August 2016, four months after Jai’s disappearance, there were reports that some poachers were detained from Paoni in Bhandara district that is part of Jai’s territory spread.While forest officials quickly clarified that the offenders were not related to any tiger poaching offences, several wildlife lovers claimed that they were hoping that their beloved Jai is alive.Even two years ago, despite many claims being made by the forest department of Jai’s spotting, not even one proof could be made public. Another issue was that there was no major activity of cattle kill being reported for a long time in all the areas where the forest department claims to have found indirect evidence of him.Incidentally, Jai’s last location was based on his radio collar signals. It was on April 18, 2016 at Paoni range, which was close to Jai’s habitat of Umred Karhandla.In its report, the NTCA has also raised questions against the credibility of Dr Bilal Habib’s theory of another tiger in Jai’s territory. Dr Habib, the senior scientist had radio-collored the iconic tiger. ‘There are issues with respect to the explanation given by Dr Habib… In case of UKWLS, the subadult male tigers are too young (18 to 24 months) to pose a challenge to an established tiger in his prime, and there is no report of territorial fight or aggression between territorial male and subadult tigers. There is no record of adult male tigers giving away territory without any aggressive interaction,’ the NTCA report said.

Manipur: Father-son-duo lead programme to reduce plastic waste

Recycling has practically become a household term with school children across the country being educated about the need to recycle, conserve and preserve. The same can be said for Sagolband Sadokpam Leikai in Manipur’s Imphal district, where an effective recycling programme is being spearheaded by Sadokpam Itombi Singh and his father Sadokpam Gunakanta.Knowing that plastics are a threat to the eco-system as they negatively impact the natural environment and create problems for plants, wildlife and even human population, Itombi who is an graduate of Computer Application along his father, an engineer from theGovernment Polytechnic, Manipur has been determined to make their district a better place to live.Itomba founded the SJ Plastic Industries in early 2007, and since then the father-son duo have been the driving force behind the effective recycling process of plastic waste in his area.Earlier in 1990s, the 65-year-old, Gunakanta used to run the small enterprise with the help of his son who helped him in the daily operations at the recycling plant. They used to collect bottles and sent it to the neighbouring states-Delhi and Guwahati that had plastic recycling plant.However, in 2010, new machines were procured at the enterprise that could build pipes, other household items, tubs, flower pots from plastic waste.Currently, as many as 120 types of plastics have been identified in Manipur alone. Out of 120, almost 30 are recycled in Manipur while the remaining ones are sent to Delhi and Guwahati after a compression process.”Plastics are recyclable. We need to make conscious efforts to recycle such waste so they can be used for other purposes, instead of allowing them to pollute our water bodies,” Gunakanta said.At present, the company has 35 regular staffs and six work on daily wages. The company, which started with an investment of Rs 1.5 lakhs, currently has a turnover of 1.2 crores per annum.

Air India must disclose records of PM Modi’s foreign trips, can’t be kept under ‘cloak’ of secrecy: CIC

The CIC has directed the Air India to disclose complete records related to bills raised for the foreign visits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, underlining that since the expenditure is from the public exchequer it cannot be withheld under the “cloak” of commercial confidence and fiduciary capacity.The commission rejected the arguments of Air India’s central public information officer (CPIO) that the information relates to commercial confidence and is held by the public sector undertaking in a fiduciary capacity, making it exempt from disclosure.”Moreover, by no stretch of imagination, it can be acceptable that the information regarding dates, duration and places of visit by the PM in his official capacity are exempted u/s sections 8 or 9 of the RTI Act (the exemption clauses under the RTI Act),” Information Commissioner Amitava Bhattacharyya ruled.He said each individual bill as well as the dates of receipt of amounts should be disclosed as the same involved “expenditure out of public exchequer”.Bhattacharyya noted that Air India’s denial to part with the sought for information without citing any exemption clause under the RTI Act is “not acceptable” as a “justifiable denial of information” sought by RTI applicant Lokesh Batra.”CPIO (Air India) on one hand claimed that the sought for information is related to a matter of commercial confidence and on the other hand the CPIO concerned stated that the information sought for is maintained by Air?India in a fiduciary capacity,” he observed.Batra had sought to know dates, durations, places visited and the date-wise copies of bills raised by Air India to the PMO for 2016-17.”The commission after close scrutiny of the information sought by the appellant observed that dates, duration and places of the prime minister’s foreign visits are disclosable (sic) as these details are widely reported in the media, both national & international and both print & electronic,” Bhattacharyya said.He said the commission is not convinced with the CPIO’s submission of exemption under the “cloak of commercial confidence and fiduciary relationship” with the client concerned, which in this case is another wing of the same government.In response to a separate RTI application of Batra, filed recently, seeking similar information from Air India, the national carrier had cited an instruction from the PMO to not share information related to the prime minister’s foreign visits.In an e-mail, sent to an Air India official on December 26, 2016, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) had said, “Records pertaining to PM’s flight have certain information which may have security implications and are, hence, exempted from disclosure under clause (g) of Section 8(1) of the RTI Act, 2005.””As such, the Air India is advised not to disclose information relating to PM’s flight to such RTI queries,” it said.It was not clear what had prompted the PMO’s e-mail in 2016. However, the present RTI application in which the commission has given orders to disclose was filed on September 14, 2016.

Modi ji worried about the future of people, Rahul ji thinks about himself: Smriti Irani on Cong chief’s PM ambition

Union Broadcasting and Information minister Smriti Irani took a swipe at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi after he expressed willingness to become Prime Minister post-2019 General Elections.On Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi said that he will become the Prime Minister if the party emerges as largest in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.Speaking at a gathering of prominent personalities in Bengaluru, when asked if he will become the Prime Minister, the Congress chief said that it depends on how well the Congress party does.”If the Congress party is the biggest party, yes,” said Rahul.However, taking a swipe at Congress chief, Smriti Irani said, “Modi ji and Amit Shah are worried about future of people of this country while Rahul Ji thinks about himself. He said if his party comes to power he will be the PM in 2019. A person who does not trust his own leadership and ability, how can he expect people to trust him,” Irani said while speaking at a public rally in Karnataka’s Yedrami.Earlier last month, Rahul Gandhi had asserted that BJP would not win the 2019 Lok Sabha polls and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi might lose from Varanasi under a ‘united’ OppositionHe predicted a “collapse” not “seen in many years” for the current dispensation and exuded confidence over roping in and managing alliance partners despite their varied personal and regional aspirationsIn September last year, when he was Vice-President, Rahul Gandhi had said he was “absolutely ready” to be the party’s prime ministerial candidate for the 2019 general elections.(With ANI inputs)

From EVMs with VVPAT to pink booths, Karnataka prepares up for election

As the Karnataka assembly elections loom, Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar on Tuesday dwelled upon the preparedness.A total of 58,000 booths have been set up out of which 600 will be fully run by women and ten plus booths will be run by the disabled people.”Total 58,000 booths have been set up out of which 600 will be fully run by women and will be known as pink booths, 10 plus booths will be run by disabled people and 28 booths will have ethnic design,” Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar told ANI.”We will be using 80,000 Voter-Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) along with 80,000 Electronic Voting Machines (EVM). More than Rs.70 Cr cash and liquor worth Rs.32 Cr has been seized. We’re prepared for elections on May 12,” Kumar added.With the election to the 225-member Karnataka State Assembly edging closer, the state has become a battleground with public rallies being the primary form of warfare.Both the BJP and Congress have extensively tried to undermine each other in a bid to woo the electorate of the state.Karnataka will go to polls on May 12 to elect representatives to their 225-seat assembly while the results will be declared on May 15.

Civic body to punish Dahisar river polluters

BMC has promised to take action within a week against two polluting activities, which are the prime reasons for causing degradation of the Dahisar river.Members of River March, which is campaigning for rejuvenation of Dahisar river, have been long complaining about owners of cattle sheds near Shrikrishna Nagar Complex in Borivali directly releasing cattle manure and other waste into the river as well as continued washing activity at the Dhobi Ghat.On Tuesday morning, Assistant Municipal Commissioner Ramakant Biradar of R/Central ward along with members of River March inspected both the sites and assured the local residents and River March members that he would initiate action.Gopal Jhaveri, founder of River March, said: “A huge amount of dung daily released into the river using a drain below the Shrikrishna Nagar Complex severely affecting the river. There were grills installed on three occasions to stop the waste but they were stolen.”He suggested that the open drain outlet be permanently closed.

BMC is likely to get Development Plan 2034 notification within a week

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is likely to get draft notification of development plan (DP) 2034 in a week, imformed a senior civic official working with state government’s urban development department. The DP was approved by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis last month.According to the official, a team of officials from state urban development department and BMC have been working on minor changes on DP 2034 following chief minister’s order and will be sent to the BMC thereafter.In the DP 2034, the FSI for the island city has been increased from 2 to 3. However, the for the suburbs it has been kept at 2.5. In addition, it also promises to create around 8 million jobs and 1 million affordable homes. Even the DP department of BMC has already received around 17 new proposals for redevelopment of old dilapidated buildings after the DP was approved by the chief minister.Earlier, there was a ban on redevelopment in the city which was lifted by the Supreme Court in March for six months with a condition that debris would not be dumped in Deonar dumping ground. Also, developers had to find a plot for dumping debris and get an no objection certificate from the owner of the plot.The DP also has a proposal to unlock around 2100 hectares of land parcels which has been untouched till now. These lands were so far under the buffer zones and were designated as no development zone. However, this has received criticism from residents. Ignoring the criticisms, NMC claimed that these lands cannot be kept untouched forever. In addition, the DP will also make available around 300 acres of land of Aarey Colony for Metro car shed, zoo and rehabilitation of tribals.

Mind your lingo: Marathi language mandatory in Maharashtra government offices

On May 7, the Maharashtra government issued a circular making the use of Marathi language mandatory in all official communication and correspondence henceforth. Though Marathi is the official language of the state under the Maharashtra Official Languages Act, 1964 and Amendment Act, 2015, its use is not rampant.”It was observed that use of English and Hindi along with Marathi was rampant. IAS and IPS officers continued to use English as the language for communication and correspondence. That created a barrier between the common man and the bureaucracy. Therefore, government has decided to make the use of Marathi language compulsory for government at all levels,” said senior government official on requested anonymity.As per the circular, all departments of the state government has to set up a Marathi language vigilant officer to keep a vigil over the use of Marathi language in the department. “If there is a lapse in implementation, he will recommend the suggestions and ensure effective enforcement of the circular. Besides, all government schemes and its details should be written and given in Marathi only. Marathi should also be the language for verbal communication by the government officers. All meetings including cabinet meetings should be presided in the state official language,” stated in the circular.It further reads government advertisements, government appointed committee reports and other research reports, name plates of the ministers and officers should also be written in Marathi.EASY SPEAKThe places names should be written in Marathi, for example Sion should be spelled as Shiv Government circulars and committee reports should be written in Marathi

Jinnah Road at Bikaner city oft-used landmark

While battle rages at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) over a picture of MA Jinnah, a street in Bikaner city continues to exist as Jinnah Road. While the name was changed to Subhash Marg, the locals of this border district continue to use the name of Jinnah without much conflict.The road has shops owned by both Muslims and Hindus. While Muslim shopkeepers write Jinnah Road on the boards of their shops, the Hindus write Subhash Marg. There are some who adopt a median stand and write both Subhash Marg – Jinnah Road as address of their shops.The street is near the Kotgate area of the old city and largely has meat, mobile, music and garment shops. How a shopkeeper writes his address is entirely up to him.It is not clear how the street got named after Jinnah. But historian, Professor Shivkumar Bhanot of Bikaner, informed DNA: “It was called Jinnah Road since pre-independence era, but in the 60s, it was officially changed. The name of this street was converted to Netaji Subhash Chandra Road. The government had affixed signage boards with this name on both sides of the road. But they were removed by unknown persons. Today the street is called by both names.”According to local shopkeepers Lucky Sankhla, “We have not been here for very long, but as our neighbouring shops use the name Jinnah Road, we also do the same.”Gopal Gehlot Congress leaders told DNA, “People use whatever name they want to and there has never been any conflict over it. Though name was changed in the 60’s and the official name is Subhash Marg.”

Father, 2 sons thrashed by cops, Station House Officer, 6 constables taken off duty

The Station House Officer (SHO) of Rani Bagh police station along with six other policemen were taken off duty after a man alleged that he and his 2 sons were thrashed inside the police station. The man alleged that they were beaten after they refused to pay the cops a price for letting off their two-wheeler.According to Surender Aggarwal, their scooty was parked just outside their home in Saraswati Vihar area when the police officials took it away.Aggarwal stated that his youngest son (17) went to the police station but the cops instead asked him to pay Rs 200 if he wanted the scooty back. “When my son refused to pay, the police officials increased the amount to Rs 1,000. Even the guard of our neighbour had told them not to take the scooty away but they still took it,” said Surender.The family members alleged that the police officers later threatened his son saying they would file a false narcotics case against him. They snatched his mobile phone and thrashed him. When his son did not return, the elder son went to the police station, who too was injured as cops poked a sharp object in his toes. Later, Surender and his wife also went to the police station to check on their sons.The family of four, including Surender’s wife, who is well known real estate dealers in the area, were thrashed by around 7-8 cops.Later, after the intervention of senior officers, they were let off. They were later asked to sort out the matter, however, he refused.Six officers, including an Assistant Sub-Inspector and five constables, were taken off duty and sent to district lines in the case. An enquiry has been initiated as well, police said.

Special category status demand heats up Bihar politics again

A renewed demand for a special category status to Bihar has once again heated up the state politics, with Opposition parties seeking support of the ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) on the issue, instead of politicising the matter.Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee (BPCC) in-charge Shakti Singh Gohil, who arrived in Patna on Tuesday, said the Congress has been raising the demand and its stand has been very clear on the issue. “We believe that Bihar should get special category status and we will fight for it till it is fulfilled. If the JD-U wants to support us in this demand, they are welcome,” he said.Bihar’s main Opposition party, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), which has 80 MLAs in the 243-member Assembly, called the JD-U and its ally Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s stand on the special category status ‘hilarious’. “BJP and JDU, both of the parties boast of dreamland’s double engine, both pretend to support the demand for special status to Bihar, but none of them explains what is stopping Bihar from getting it’s much demanded, much deserved special status and special package!,” Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, the Leader of the Opposition in Bihar’s Legislative Assembly, said on Tuesday.He tweeted, “RJD has been vociferously raising the demand of special status since bifurcation of Bihar. But, Nitish Kumar opposed it when Vajpayee Ji was prime minister. He (Nitish) has used the issue as his pet political mileage cow! Raises it to raise his political prospects, forgets when the pasture is green!”Even other parties, including the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), have asked CM Nitish Kumar to ‘exert pressure’ on PM Narendra Modi for granting special status to Bihar. The demand for Bihar’s special category status was renewed at a recent all party meeting, in which JD-U leaders had called its denial as ‘injustice to Bihar’ and it was decided that a fresh case reiterating the demand will be put forth before the 15th Finance Commission.ON DEMANDEven other parties, including the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), have asked Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to ‘exert pressure’ on PM Narendra Modi for granting special status to Bihar

AMC to remove Anganwadi, Pay & Use toilet for Metro parking space

The civic body has leased out the land to its company named Metro Express Link for Gandhinagar Ahmedabad (MEGA) for the works of the upcoming Metro rail in the city.The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) will give 825 square meters of land to MEGA near the Amraiwadi area, for which the civic body is slated to raze an Anganwadi and a Pay & Use toilet. However, MEGA will construct the same units, which will be demolished in the first place, at a different location and will also bear the cost of the same.The company needs this space in order to construct a Metro station and a parking for two-wheeler vehicles.Earlier, the civic body had allotted 400 square meters of the plot for the station purpose. However, MEGA had demanded 425 square meters of land near the earlier allocated land for the parking purpose as well.Interestingly, the AMC will get only Re 1 from MEGA for leasing out the land for 99 years as the space will only be used for parking purposes. Other acquired land by the rail authority had been given as per the current Jantri rate. There is also a provision in the proposed work that if there will be a variation in the purpose of land, MEGA will only be able to do it by paying an advance rent of 20 years.MEGA has pulled up their socks to be able to run the Metro by September 2018. Two routes will be operational by then. According to the sources, before the general election announcement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants the Metro to be operational in Ahmedabad to show Gujarat’s development model.WHY THE ACTIONThe Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation will give 825 square meters of land to MEGA near the Amraiwadi area, for which the civic body is slated to raze an Anganwadi and a Pay & Use toilet

Mumbai: Classes 5 to 10 of Shardashram Vidyamandir School will be affiliated to Maharashtra State Board

Shardashram Vidyamandir School in Dadar has finally come out with a decision with regard to the board they will affiliate to. They have decided to continue with SSC state board for Classes 5 to 10, and Class 1 to 4 will be affiliated to the ICSE board from the academic year of 2018-2019. For classes affiliated to the Delhi board, the school was renamed SVM International School.In April this year the school had declared it will convert from a state board school to an ICSE board one — a move that was opposed by many parents.On April 25, DNA had reported about the ‘parents against school’s move to convert to ICSE’. After lot of pressure from the parent’s body and the Yuva Sena (students wing of the Shiv Sena), the school on Tuesday put up a notice board stating admissions for class 5 students from May 8 to 10 under the state board.The parents had approached the Yuva Sena and the BMC education department, questioning them about the decision to change the school’s name. They also alleged that the school did not notify them about converting into a central board school.The Yuva sena had then written to BMC’s education department asking on what basis it was granted an NOC, and whether the school should do away with the state board despite the student strength under it being good.Harish Jadhav (name changed), one of the parents, said, “Earlier, the school had planned to completely do away with the state board and convert to an ICSE board school. But, after we approached different authorities, the school decided to continue with SSC for Classes 5 to 10.”Another parent, Satish Kadam (name changed), said, “We are happy to know that the school will continue with state board in the secondary section. But we are still worried about what may happen next year.”The school changed its decision after BMC’s education committee members visited the school and met the management to put forth parents’ grievances.”Yuva Sena’s demand to retain state board affiliation for Classes 5 to 10 was accepted by the school’s management. We welcome the decision and the parents are happy, too. But, one must not neglect the way the education department had messed the situation up. We are not against ICSE board, but SSC board schools should not shut down so suddenly. We will follow up the matter,” Sainath Durge, Shivsena-BMC Education Committee Member, said.Subhash Jadhav, the administrative officer of the school, said, “We have decided to continue state board for Classes 5 to 10, that is, till Class 5 students write their SSC board exams.”

Three detained in J&K tourist’s death

The Jammu and Kashmir Police has made a significant headway in the investigation into the killing of a 22-year-old Chennai tourist caught in stone-pelting and detained three people for questioning in the Narbal area of Central Kashmir. Meanwhile, embattled Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has pitched for meaningful dialogue to end violence and bloodshed in the strife torn valley.On Monday, stone throwers had claimed the life of R Thirumani, a tourist from Chennai as his vehicle was caught in the stone-pelting at Narbal area en-route to the famous ski resort of Gulmarg. Speaking on the incident, Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that what happened to the tourist was absolutely unfortunate and cannot be accommodated. “I don’t know whether it was inadvertent or advertent, but it is completely condemnable,” she said.Special teams have been formed by the Jammu and Kashmir police to track down the stone-pelters responsible for the incident. Massive raids are also being conducted across the Narbal-Magam belt to trace out the stone throwers. “We are investigating at a fast pace. There has been a significant headway and we have identified some people,” said a senior police officer. Police is also scanning the video footage available and rounding up the habitual suspects.Additionally, Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Minister Tassaduq Mufti said many recent surveys have revealed Kashmir as one of the safest tourist destinations in the world due to a very low crime rate, adding, “Yet when in such an environment, sporadic incident like this happens, it has the potential to undo the good work of many decades together and reinforce a very negative perception about Kashmir.”To that end, Mehbooba has called an all-party meeting on Wednesday to discuss the prevailing situation with the leaders and try to work out a mechanism to end bloodshed.”Without a sustained, meaningful dialogue and outreach not just for the government but from the entire country, J&K will get pushed deeper into this vortex of gloom. My deepest condolences to the deceased’s family,” Mehbooba tweeted.She also met Governor NN Vohra at the Raj Bhavan and discussed various important matters relating to counter-terrorist operations; continuing incidents of stone pelting and the tourist’s death.Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani also issued a statement and said, “Words fall short to console and condole the family for such a tragic loss and we as a nation feel not only sorry but ashamed as well”, he said.ANOTHER DEATHIn the Shopian incident on Sunday, another youth succumbed to his wounds, taking the civilian toll to six. Suhail Ahmad Bhat was grievously injured in the clashes that broke out at Badigam in Shopian and had been put on life support.

Kathua rape and murder: Accused to file fresh petition in SC, seeking CBI probe

The accused in the Kathua rape-and-murder case will file a fresh petition in the Supreme Court (SC) in the next few days, seeking handing over of the probe to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).The apex court had yesterday directed that the trial in the case of alleged gangrape and murder of an eight-year-old girl, which had led to a nationwide outrage, be moved to Pathankot in neighbouring Punjab. “A fresh petition seeking a CBI probe is ready. It shall be filed within a few days (in the Supreme Court),” Ankur Sharma, the lawyer of five of the accused in the case, said today. A detailed counter on behalf of accused Sanjhi Ram, Vishal Jangotra and Parvesh Kumar was filed in the apex court, along with an additional affidavit seeking a CBI probe, he added.Sharma said in yesterday’s hearing, only a notice could have been issued if a fresh petition seeking a CBI probe was filed. “The fastest way of getting a CBI probe in yesterday’s hearing was through our counter and additional affidavit,” he said, adding that their main concern was not the shifting of the case, but the CBI probe. The lawyer denied that yesterday’s court order, shifting the trial of the case to Pathankot, was a setback for them. “It was a loss for the state government as it wanted the case to remain in Jammu and Kashmir, preferably in Ramban district,” he said, adding that it was a loss for the victim’s family also as it had wanted the case to be shifted to Chandigarh.”The court has called for a fast trial of the case on a day-to-day basis. We are hopeful that the trial will be completed in a year,” Sharma said.The state government’s “plot” of introducing 221 witnesses to cause a delay in the trial was busted by the apex court, he said, adding that the case would now be heard on a daily basis. “We are hopeful that the case will be transferred to the CBI,” Sharma said. The body of the eight-year-old victim was recovered from a forest area in Kathua on January 17, a week after she had gone missing while grazing horses in the area. The Jammu and Kashmir government had handed over the case to the crime branch, which had formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe it. The crime branch had subsequently filed two separate chargesheets in the case, one against the seven adult accused on April 9 and another against the sole juvenile accused on April 10.

Karnataka Election 2018: Thousands of voter ID cards recovered in Rajarajeshwari Nagar, EC orders probe

Days ahead of Karnataka Assembly election, a huge number of fake voter identity cards were recovered from an apartment in Bengaluru’s Jalahalli area on Tuesday, claimed Union Minister D.V. Sadanand Gowda.Talking to ANI, Gowda alleged that Congress candidate from Rajarajeshwari Nagara, Munirathna Naidu is behind the fake ID cards.The former chief minister of Karnataka accused the MLAs of the ruling party of misusing their position and pressurising officers to enroll false names in voter list.”This MLA Munirathna Naidu is a ‘gunda’. Nearly 60,000 voter ID cards have been manipulated, we caught hold of some & complained,” Gowda said.Earlier in the day, taking to his Twitter handle, Gowda revealed about the recovery of more than 2000 voter ID cards and asked the Election commission to withhold the election in the constituency.”How can 20000 + voter card can be found in private place. 5 laptops, printer, thousands of Form 6 Acknowledgement found in trunks. Someone is riding on democracy. Election to Rajarajeshwari Nagar Constituency should be withheld immediately,” Gowda tweeted.He said that he will meet the Election Commission on Wednesday and demand a proper investigation on the same.Reacting to the charges, the state election commission held a late-night presser at 11:30 where they said an FIR had been registered and the situation would be closely monitored by the Election Commission.He wrote on Twitter: “Mr Election Commissioner How can 20000 + voter card can be found in private place. 5 lap tops , printer , thousands of Form 6 Acknowledgement found in trunks . Someone is riding on democracy . Election to Rajarajeshwari Nagar Constituency should be withheld immediately.”Reacting to the charge, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said:”Congress is losing public support & they are trying hard to rig the upcoming elections in Karnataka by undemocratic ways. So, we demand countermanding of polls in Raj Rajeshwari Nagar constituency.”In a late-night press conference, Sanjeev Kumar, the chief electoral officer for Karnataka Election 2018 said it was a serious matter.He said: “This is certainly a serious matter we can’t decide it here. We don’t understand the significance of this. Counterfoils are there. Whether they really are the electors or not, it is yet to see.”The Election Commission said on preliminary investigation, 9746 Electoral Photo-Idenity Cards (EPIC) were those of actual electors and appeared to be genuine.He added: “FIR has been registered & further investigations will be conducted. The situation is being closely monitored by the Election Commission & appropriate action will be taken.”Meanwhile, Congress communication in-charge Randeep Surjewala said: “BJP is seeking attention by levelling allegations. BJP is doing midnight drama as if Congress has something to do in the recovery of these 9746 Voter ID cards.”

Dust storms, rain and thunder hit parts of north India including Delhi; IMD predicts more bad weather tomorrow

Dust storms, rain and thunder hit parts of northern India today, leaving at least 100 animals dead in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, uprooting trees and blowing the roofs off homes in Himachal Pradesh’s Shimla, but striking with less fury in other places.Normal life was disrupted in parts of Punjab, Haryana and Delhi with the India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicting more bad weather tomorrow.In Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri, hailstorm preceded by heavy rains hit Thanamandi area in the evening, prompting authorities to launch a massive rescue operation, a senior official said.Rajouri District Development Commissioner Shahid Iqbal Choudhary said there was no immediate report of loss of human life but over 110 small animals, mostly sheep and goats, perished.Choudhary, who is supervising the rescue operation, said 10 families of nomadic Bakerwal community, all residents of Androoth village who were on move to higher reaches, were trapped in the hailstorm and suffered the losses of their livestock.An immediate amount of Rs 3 lakh was sanctioned for assistance to affected families, he said. ?A massive rescue operation was going on,” he said, adding hundreds of vehicles were stranded on the road due to accumulation of debris.A severe storm, accompanied by hail and rain, hit Shimla and other parts of Himachal Pradesh, while the higher reaches of the state experienced snowfall.The hailstorm triggered traffic jams, snapped power supply, uprooted trees and blew off roofs in parts of Shimla district. Rain water flooded the main roads and entered some buildings in state capital.In Rajasthan, a dust storm hit places in Jodhpur and Bikaner divisions and isolated areas in Jaipur, Ajmer and Kota regions.Officials said no loss to life or major damage to property was reported till late evening.The Met department said many parts of the state could again see a dust storm or thunderstorm in the next 24 hours.Strong winds hit Ajmer, Jaipur, Sikar and nearby areas in the morning leaving trees uprooted and sign boards damaged.Moderate to light rains occurred at places in Jodhpur, Bikaner, Jaipur and Ajmer divisions while the weather remained dry in other divisions, according to the Met department.Parts of Delhi witnessed a dust storm coupled with a drizzle in the evening, with MeT department keeping an eye on its progress.Light to moderate rains lashed parts of Punjab and Haryana, including Chandigarh, leading to a sharp fall in temperature.Ambala, Panchkula, Mohali and Patiala were also hit by rain in the two states.The Met department today warned that thunderstorms and squalls with a wind speed of up to 70 kmph are “very likely” in Uttarakhand and parts of eastern India tomorrow, signalling that the freak weather phenomenon over northern India has moved eastward.In an advisory, the department said thunderstorms with gusty winds are “very likely” in parts of Himachal Pradesh, east Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.It said a similar weather pattern is likely to be witnessed in West Bengal, and in six of the seven northeastern states, except Mizoram.

No tension between navies of India, China in Indian Ocean Region: Nirmala Sitharaman

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said today that there is no tension between the navies of India and China in the strategic Indian Ocean, which has been witnessing increasing activities by the PLA Navy.Responding to a question on the “tussle” between China and India in the Indian Ocean Region, Sitharaman sought to downplay the issue and said, “There was no tension in the Indian Ocean, in the Navy against China.”The Indian Ocean, considered the backyard of the Indian Navy, is critical to India’s strategic interests. Over the years, the region has witnessed increasing Chinese presence.China increased its presence in the Indian Ocean Region by constructing the deep-sea Gwadar Port in southern Pakistan and a naval base in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa. The region also has Chinese ships deployed for anti-piracy operations.On April 16, the Indian Navy on Twitter welcomed China’s PLA Navy in the Indian Ocean Region.”#MaritimeDomainAwareness @indiannavy extends a warm welcome to the 29th Anti-Piracy Escort Force (APEF) of PLA(N) in Indian Ocean Region (IOR). Happy Hunting @SpokespersonMoD @DefenceMinIndia @IAF_MCC @adgpi @IndiaCoastGuard @IndianDiplomacy,” it tweeted.When asked about her visit to China, and that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to that country last month and whether there has been any change in terms of strategy, Sitharaman said: “We are talking, we are meeting each other – and that is a big change.”The defence personnel of the two countries were locked in a 73-day standoff in Doklam area near Sikkim last year and it had resulted in tension between the two Asian giants.Reacting to reports that there was a directive to the Army not to be aggressive on the borders, Sitharaman said she was not aware of it.

‘Piquant and unprecedented’ matter, four other judges may have some role: SC on CJI impeachment matter

The Supreme Court today dubbed as “piquant and unprecedented” the situation in the matter of impeachment of the Chief Justice of India, saying while the CJI was a party, four other judges “may also have some role”.Responding to the argument of the two Congress MPs that the court should tell them where to mention the matter seeking a copy of administrative order to set up a larger bench to deal with their petition, a five-judge bench headed by Justice A K Sikri said, “It is a piquant and unprecedented situation where CJI is a party and other four judges may also have some role. We don’t know”.The 5-judge bench, was referring to four senior most judges of apex court–Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, M B Lokur and Kurian Joseph–who had held January 12 press conference against CJI Dipak Misra raising litany of questions on allocation of cases.The lawmakers, who later withdrew their plea challenging the decision of Rajya Sabha Chairman to reject the impeachment notice against the CJI, told the bench that they should be given a copy of the administrative order by which the constitution bench was constituted overnight to hear their petition.The bench expressed its reluctance to senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the two lawmakers, saying that giving a copy of the administrative order “will not lead to anywhere” and they should argue on merits.The bench declared the petitions moved by the two MPs as “dismissed as withdrawn” after Sibal decided not to press the petition, realising that the judges were not inclined to accept his arguments on parting with the administrative order.The 45-minute hearing before the bench saw the Rajya Sabha Congress MPs–Partap Singh Bajwa from Punjab and Amee Harshadray Yajnik from Gujarat– raising a volley of questions over the setting up of the five-judge bench to hear the matter.However, Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, sought dismissal of the petitions filed by Bajwa and Yajnik, pointing out that only two of the 64 members, who had earlier moved the impeachment notice in the Upper House of Parliament, have approached the apex court.He said only two MPs from one party, the Congress, have moved the court when there were MPs from six other opposition parties who had moved a notice of impeachment motion before the Rajya Sabha chairman. Before the AG, opened his arguments, Sibal raised several questions on the setting up of the constitution bench, including who had passed the order to set up such a bench to hear the matter.He said the issue was that the power of ‘master of roster’ was unparalleled or was it subject to some guidelines and how was this power to be exercised.”If the powers are unparalleled then can the powers be exercised the way he (CJI) likes? Then the question arises what way. We request your lordship to look at this issue. Lordship tells me that CJI is master of roster and that is the end of dialogue. But is it so? It is the beginning of a dialogue”, Sibal said.The senior lawyer said he would raise the issue to uphold the dignity and values of the institution and the court will have to decide whether the order on administrative side can be challenged or is it the only exception in this country that can’t be challenged.He read out Article 145(3) of the Constitution to say that there was a minimum requirement on the number of judges to decide the substantial question of law and other issues.He said “I must know who passed this order. This court should give me a copy of the administrative order so that I can decide my future course. Petitioner has the right to know the authority who passed the order”.”What purpose will it serve to you. Will you challenge it. You mean to say the CJI can’t pass this order,” the bench said.Sibal said then the court should tell him from where to get the copy of the order and where to mention the matter.Responding to the Attorney General’s arguments, he said, “Next time, I will get all 64 MPs to come here then. Which law says that only two MPs cannot challenge the order”.The senior lawyer said if the CJI’s order on administrative side cannot be challenged, then he will withdraw the plea.The bench said, “Ok then the petition is dismissed as withdrawn”Sibal had yesterday mentioned the matter for urgent listing before a bench headed by Justice J Chelameswar, the senior-most judge after CJI Dipak Misra.While Justice Chelameswar initially asked him to mention it before the CJI, the bench, which also comprised Justice S K Kaul, later asked Sibal and advocate Prashant Bhushan to “come back tomorrow”.Late last evening, the matter was listed for hearing today before the five-judge constitution bench headed by Justice Sikri.The Rajya Sabha Chairman had on April 23 rejected the notice, given by seven opposition parties led by the Congress for impeachment of the CJI on five grounds of “misbehaviour”. This was the first time that an impeachment notice was filed against a sitting CJI.

Cong MPs withdraw petition challenging rejection of impeachment notice against CJI by Naidu

Two Congress MPs, who had challenged the rejection of the impeachment notice against the Chief Justice of India by Rajya Sabha Chairman, today withdrew their petition from the Supreme Court after it showed reluctance to part with the administrative order on constitution of a larger bench to hear the matter.The two MPs confronted a five-judge constitution bench headed by Justice A K Sikri and demanded a “copy of the administrative order by which a constitution bench was constituted overnight”. The bench, also including Justices S A Bobde, N V Ramana, Arun Mishra and Adarsh Kumar Goel, told senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the two law-makers that giving a copy of the administrative order “will not lead to anywhere”. The bench, which comprised judges who are 6 to 10 position in terms of seniority, expressed reluctance to go into their contention questioning the setting up of a larger bench to hear the matter.”It is a piquant and unprecedented situation where CJI is a party and other four judges may also have some role. We don’t know,” the bench said when Sibal asked where can he mention the matter for seeking the administrative order.The court said “It will lead us nowhere. You can argue the matter on merit. We are ready for it”.The bench declared the petitions moved by Rajya Sabha Congress MPs, Partap Singh Bajwa and Amee Harshadray Yajnik, as “dismissed as withdrawn” after Sibal decided not to press the pleas realising that the judges were not inclined to accept his arguments.The 45-minute hearing before the bench saw Sibal raising a volley of questions over the setting up of the five-judge bench to hear the matter.However, Attorney General K K Venugopal sought dismissal of the petitions filed by Bajwa and Yajnik, pointing out that only two of the 64 members, who had moved the impeachment notice in the Upper House of Parliament, have approached the apex court. Venugopal, appearing for Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, said only two MPs from one party, the Congress, have moved the court whereas there were MPs from six other opposition parties who had moved the impeachment notice in the Rajya Sabha. Sibal cited various verdicts and said the court should tell him whether the CJI’s order on the administrative side can be challenged on the judicial side, or if it cannot be challenged, then it should be recorded.He said if the CJI’s order on the administrative side cannot be challenged, then he will withdraw the plea.The bench said, “You told us in the beginning that you have no personal agenda against anyone, no malice and no malafide against anyone but it appears that there is something else”.Sibal replied, “What is something else. I still stand by my words that I have no agenda against anyone. We are here to uphold the dignity of the institution”.Justice Sikri reminded Sibal that he had started out by saying that the dignity of the institution was at stake and its values needed to be upheld.Sibal shot back asking whether the dignity of the court be jeopardised if the administrative order to set up the five-judge bench is given to him.The bench said “Then, you can make an application seeking an administrative order”.Sibal said “what application? If I am not given the copy of the administrative order, then I will withdraw”.The bench said, “Ok then, the petition is dismissed as withdrawn”.Earlier, questioning the maintainability of the petition, the Attorney General had said there were various occasions where the CJI had directly ordered listing of a matter before a constitution bench.”Once the decision is given by the Rajya Sabha chairman, which in the instant case is a very reasoned order, there are two options, either you challenge it or accept it. In this context, it means six parties and 62 MPs have accepted the chairman’s order. At least 50 MPs should have come before the court,” the Attorney General said.”The presumption is that six other political parties have accepted the decision except the two Congress MPs. It means all others have not supported the stand taken by the Congress party to challenge the rejection of impeachment notice,” the AG said. Sibal said, “We want a copy of the administrative order by which the Constitution bench was constituted overnight. Its my right to know who constituted the bench. The master of roster that is Chief Justice of India is not entitled to pass orders. Constitution bench are constituted by an judicial order.” Justice Sikri asked, “What purpose the order will serve to you? It will not lead us anywhere”. Sibal replied, “It is my right to have the order. I may or may not challenge it. It is my prerogative. I want to know the authority who had passed the administrative order. I was informed at 9.29am today that my case is listed before a Constitution bench”.He said “the issue is very simple. Can the order passed on the administrative side be challenged on the judicial side or please record that I am not entitled to it”.The bench said that the court can very well decide on setting up of a bench in matters of such “seminal importance” which concerns the very institution. While Justice Bobde asked Sibal that he can file application for seeking a copy of the administrative order, Justice Goel said “There is no bar that a five-judge bench cannot hear.”

In first rally in two years, Sonia Gandhi says PM Modi ‘possessed by devil’ of Congress-mukt Bharat

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is “possessed by the devil” of Congress-mukt Bharat, and his only accomplishment in the last four years is to have undone the good work of the previous Congress governments, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi said today.Holding her first election rally in two years, Gandhi said all sections of society were facing problems, and questioned Modi on his “favorite promise” of ending corruption.”Modi ji is proud that he can make speeches well. I agree he is a good orator. He speaks like an actor. If speeches could fill the country’s stomach, I wish he gave more speeches,” she said, taking a swipe at the prime minister.Also readExclusive: People of Karnataka won’t tolerate being ignored, BJP will form govt with full majority, says Amit Shah Gandhi never campaigned in an election after she was suddenly taken ill during a road show in Varanasi ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.Her election rally was seen as an attempt to give a cutting edge to the blitzkrieg launched by his son and Congress president Rahul Gandhi to retain power in Karnataka, the only major state their party rules apart from Punjab.With the UPA chairperson set to address a rally in Vijayapura hours after him, Modi had taken a dig at Rahul Gandhi, saying even leaders in his party doubted his ability to steer the Congress to victory in Karnataka.”Even Congress leaders have begun to feel that the son would not be able to help the party win Karnataka. I saw a Congress leader’s interview. So, send the mother to ensure its candidates can at least save their security deposits,” Modi said.Sonia Gandhi’s rally in Vijayapura in north Karnataka, where Lingayats wield considerable electoral influence, was also seen as an attempt to reach out to the community, which has traditionally backed the BJP.The BJP, seeking to have a shot at forming its govenment in the only southern state where its has been in power, has projected Lingayat strongman B S Yeddyurappa as its chief ministerial candidate.In her speech, Sonia Gandhi said, “Modi ji has junoon (passion) of Congress mukt bharat. He is possessed by the devil of Congress mukt bharat (Congress mukht bharat ka bhoot laga hai).”Let alone Congress mukt bharat, he cannot tolerate (bardasht) anyone standing in front of him. The country is surprised that wherever he goes he speaks wrong. He distorts history, and for his political selfishness he uses our great freedom fighters as pawns on the chess board,” she said.Sonia said the language used by Modi does not behove a person holding the high office.She said while the prime minister kept on speaking on verious subjects, he avoided talking about “real issues”.”Which promise you made to people four years ago has been fulfilled? Tell what have you done for the country’s farmers? What has Modi ji done to provide employment to youth? What has he done for the middle class, women, girls, dalits and backward classes?”Taking on the prime minister over steps to tackle corruption, she wanted to know why the Lokpal, the proposed annti-graft ombudsman, had not been constituted.”What happened to your favorite promise of ending corruption? Four years have gone by but you didn’t bring Lokpal. What is your model to end corruption, Modi ji?”Alleging that several ministers in the erstwhile Yeddyurappa government faced charges of corruption, she asked Modi whether he will follow their model or that of the “son of your close associate”, an apparent reference to BJP chief Amit Shah’s son Jay.The Congress has been raking up the issue of Jay, the turnover of whose company was alleged to have shot up sharply after Modi came to power.Sonia alleged the Congress-ruled Karnataka was being discriminated against.She claimed while thousands of crores of rupees were extended by way of assistance to other drought-hit states, the Modi government “rubbed salt to the wounds” of farmers of Karnataka by giving “too little”.Sonia claimed Modi even refused to meet chief minister Siddaramaiah who wanted to discuss with him the problems of farmers. This, she said, was an insult to not only the chief minister but also the farmers of Karnataka and their families.”Modi ji, is this your sab ka saath, sab ka vikas? (together will all, development of all),” she asked.Gandhi said Modi came to Karnataka for election, made new “hollow promises and left after spreading hatred”.She asked voters to reject the BJP’s “politics of hatred and jumlas (rhetoric)”.

Assam: Ex-teacher earns MoS Rajen Gohain’s wrath for criticising ‘poor condition of roads’ in event

A former teacher in Assam’s Nagaon district earned the wrath of Rajen Gohain apparently for highlighting the poor condition of roads in his locality at an event here, as the Minister of State for Railways chided him for “raising the issue in public”.The incident took place during a Swachh Bharat Abhiyan event and was covered by local TV channels.A video clip of the incident went viral on social media sparking off protests today. People gathered in front of the Union minister’s house in Nagaon and protested against his remarks.During the event, the teacher, who was present on the stage as one of the senior citizens of Nagaon, was speaking about the poor road condition in the area.”You can come with me to see the real condition of the roads, then you can decide if I am speaking the truth or not,” he said.A visibly agitated Gohain interrupted the teacher asking, “Why are you raising such issues? What benefits are you trying to draw? You have come with an ill-motive.””If you have any complaint you should have approached me personally and not in front of the public. What nonsense!” he went on to add.The man then took a seat in a row behind the minister’s. However, Gohain walked up to him and was seen having an animated talk.The minister’s remarks evoked strong protests from school teachers and students, who burnt effigies of Gohain in front of his house in Nagaon town and shouted slogans demanding that he publicly appologise to the teacher for “humiliating” him.Gohain was unapologetic when asked by reporters during the day in Nagaon if he would apologise. “Why should I?” he shot back to queries.

Freak weather phenomenon moving east, thunderstorm, squall likely in Bihar, WB tomorrow: IMD

The India Meteorological Department on Tuesday warned that thunderstorm and squall with wind speed of up to 70 kmph are “very likely” in Uttarakhand and parts of eastern India tomorrow, signalling that the freak weather phenomenon over northern India has moved eastward.In an advisory, the IMD said thunderstorm with gusty winds are “very likely” in parts of Himachal Pradesh, east Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.It said a similar weather pattern is likely to be witnessed in West Bengal, and in six of the seven northeastern states except Mizoram.Also readDelhi Weather Update: Thunderstorms to occur in various parts of NCR including Rohtak, Ghaziabad and GurugramThe IMD said south-interior Karnataka, north-coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema region of the state, Tamilnadu and Kerala will also witness thunderstorm with gusty winds tomorrow.The National Disaster Management Authority, too, said thunderstorm and squall are likely to hit 12 states tomorrow.Also readRajasthan Weather Update: At least 10 dead and 25 injured as heavy storms lash Alwar, Dhaulpur and BharatpurThe NDMA added that the National Capital Region, and Hisar, Kaithal, Jind, Kurukshetra, Karnal in Haryana is likely to be again hit by the unusual weather tomorrow.Last night, a dust storm with wind speed of up to 70kmph had hit Delhi followed by a squall. All evening schools run by the Delhi government and a few private morning schools remained closed today. The weather department has forecast another round of heavy rain and thunderstorm tonight.However, K Sathi Devi, head of IMD’s National weather Forecasting Centre, said the severe weather phenomenon over northwest India is likely to subside as the influence of two western disturbances – which led to the erratic weather – is weakening.”The western disturbance currently located over Jammu and Kashmir is very likely to move eastwards during next 24 hours and become unimportant. A cyclonic circulation in lower levels lies over Haryana and neighbourhood. It would move eastwards towards west Uttar Pradesh during next 24 hours and become less marked thereafter,” the IMD said.Heat wave conditions are likely at one or two pockets over Vidarbha, interior Odisha?and?west?parts?of?Jharkhand.The weather may be tumultuous next week.A fresh western disturbance is very likely to affect western Himalayan region from May 13.An easterly wave with an embedded lower level cyclonic circulation is very likely to affect states in the southern peninsula during the next week.”Under the influence of the above two systems, widespread thunderstorm activity very likely simultaneously over northwest, central, east, northeast and peninsular India from May 13 onwards,” Sathi Devi added.

Daddy don’t do this: Hyderabad teen pleads with pervert stepfather who raped her

In a shocking incident, the Hyderabad police arrested a man for repeatedly raping his 13-year-old stepdaughter.The incident came to light when the Class 8 girl informed her mother, who then approached three police stations before an FIR was registeredAccording to NDTV, the girl was raped the first time by her stepfather for the first time after she got her periods. At the time, her mother was away at work. The accused then told her not to tell anyone about the incident.The girl, however, told her mother four days later. The accused initially denied doing anything, but later said he was under the influence of alcohol and would not repeat the incident. Both mother and stepdaughter believed him.Earlier this month, he raped her again when the mother was at work. The accused reportedly physically assaulted the girl for telling her mother before proceeding to rape her. “I kept saying daddy don’t do this, but he wouldn’t listen,” the victim told the channel.The mother returned earlier from work that day and immediately knew something was wrong. Both mother and daughter then went to file a complaint. Later, he tried to contact his wife, seeking forgiveness and promising to transfer money in the girl’s name and also support her education. What he really wanted was for the girl and her mother to withdraw the case.He was later arrested.Eight years ago, the victim’s mother married the accused after she was widowed. He adopted the victim and her younger sister. They even had a child together.The mother works 10 am to 10 pm at a retail store to support her children. “She is unlikely to divorce her husband for fear of social stigma. The girl, however, does not feel safe at home anymore; she wants to stay elsewhere and realise her dream of being a police officer,” the report added.

Life gone too soon: Friends remember reserved dog lover R Thirumani who was killed by stone-pelters in J&K

A pall of gloom descended on Palavedu near Avadi, about 25 km from Chennai, on Tuesday after the death of R Thirumani who was killed in a stone pelting incident in Kashmir on Monday.Friends, relatives and neighbours of the 24-year-old Thirumani are yet to recover from the shocking death of the unassuming and very calm youngster.The victim’s body is expected to reach Chennai airport at 7.30 pm from Srinagar via New Delhi. Thirumani, who works as an analyst at a BPO, was the youngest child of Selvi and Rajavel, an employee of the Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment under DRDO at Avadi.Accompanied by his colleague’s families, Rajavel along with his wife Selvi, his daughter Sangeetha and Thirumani went on an eight-day trip to Jammu and Kashmir on May 4 to escape the sweltering heat of Chennai. Rajavel’s elder son Ravi Kumar stayed back at home.On May 7, Thriumani along with his mother were hit by stones when their vehicle was caught in the stone pelting at Narbal area en route to the famous ski resort of Gulmarg. He was shifted to Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences where he succumbed. While his mother sustained minor injuries.Thirumani’s friends and neighbours describe him as an unassuming and silent person.“Mostly he cannot be spotted outside his home. The only time he can be seen in the street was when he takes out his two dogs in the evening,” R Gowri, a neighbour, told DNA. The family was living in the locality for over two decades after moving out of the CVRDE quarters, she said.After completing his Bachelors in Commerce at DRBCCC Hindu College at Avadi, he started working at Accenture’s BPO at Shollinganallur along with his elder brother. “He is a very reserved person in nature and won’t mingle with anyone easily. But with friends, he will be very jovial,” said K Vignesh, Thirumani’s close friend and colleague.S Manoj, a family friend, said that his death was a personal loss to all of them. He sought immediate and strict action against the stone pelters who killed Thirumani. “People will lose trust in the government if tourists are getting killed in our own country. The government should act swiftly and punish those who killed Thirumani,” he said.Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Tuesday announced a solatium of Rs three lakh to the family of Thirumani Selvam, who died in stone pelting incident by protestors while on a tourist visit to Gulmarg in Jammu and Kashmir.Expressing grief and deep anguish over his death, Palaniswami, in a statement, said he has directed the officials to take all steps to bring the body of Selvam to his native place Tiruvallur near here and the authorities in Tamil Nadu House in New Delhi has initiated stepsin this regard with the assistance of the Jammu and Kashmir government.Stating that about 130 tourists from Tamil Nadu have gone as tourists, the Chief Minister said he spoke to his Jammu and Kashmir counterpart Ms Mehbooba Mufti over the phone and requested her to ensure the safe return of the tourists.

PMLA case: Delhi Court issues fresh order to attach Vijay Mallya’s properties

A Delhi court today issued fresh directions to attach the properties of businessman Vijay Mallya, who was declared a proclaimed offender for evading summons in a money laundering case related to FERA violations.Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat issued the order after advocate N K Matta, the special public prosecutor appearing for the Enforcement Directorate (ED), told the court that the agency had not received any reply from the authorities responsible for the attachment. The court took Matta’s submission on record and posted the matter for further hearing on July 5.The court had on March 27 directed the attachment through the Police Commissioner, Bengaluru, and had sought a report by today regarding the compliance of the order. The order was passed on an application moved by the ED seeking attachment of Mallya’s properties. The court had on January 4 declared Mallya a proclaimed offender for evading summons in a FERA violation case after noting that he failed to appear before it despite repeated summonses. It had on April 12 last year issued an open-ended non-bailable warrant against the liquor baron. Unlike a non-bailable warrant, an ‘open-ended NBW’ does not carry a time limit for execution.On November 4, 2016, while issuing a non-bailable warrant against Mallya, the court had observed he had no inclination to return and had scant regard for the law of the land. It had said that “coercive process has to be initiated against Mallya” as he was facing proceedings in several cases ad avoiding appearance in those matters. The court had also held that Mallya’s plea that he wanted to return to India but was “incapacitated” to travel as his passport had been revoked by the Indian authorities was “malafide” and “abuse of the process of law”.Mallya, who is reportedly in London, had on September 9 submitted before the court that he was “incapacitated” to travel despite “best intentions” as his passport had been revoked. The court had on July 9 cancelled the exemption from personal appearance granted to Mallya on an application of the ED and directed him to appear before it on September 9. The exemption was granted to Mallya in December 2000. The anti-money laundering agency had issued summons to the businessman in connection with the alleged payment of USD 200,000 to a British firm for displaying Kingfisher logo during the Formula One World Championships in London and some European countries in 1996, 1997 and 1998.It had claimed that the money was allegedly paid without prior approval of the RBI in violation of Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) norms. According to the ED, Mallya was summoned on four occasions for questioning in connection with the contract signed in December, 1995 with London-based firm Benetton Formula Ltd for the promotion of the Kingfisher brand abroad. When Mallya failed to appear before the ED in response to the summons, a complaint was filed on March 8, 2000 before a court here and later charges were framed against him under the FERA Act. Mallya, who had fled to the UK in March 2016, is also wanted in India for Kingfisher Airlines’ default on loans worth nearly Rs 9,000 crore and some other matters.

Ms. Antonio Maino, here to save her last citadel: BJP mocks Sonia Gandhi’s Italian origin

Ahead of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s visit to poll-bound Karnataka today, the BJP raked up the issue of her Italian origin by referring to her maiden name Antonio Maino.”Today, Ms. Antonio Maino is here in K’taka to save her last citadel from falling! Madam Maino, K’taka needs no lessons from the person who was solely responsible for wastingIndia’s 10 precious years.”And to Congress, need to remind you of your ‘import’ jibe?” Karnataka BJP said in a tweet.The BJP was responding to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s recent remarks calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his own Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath “North Indian imports”.”@BJP4Karnataka by waiting for North Indian imports like PM Modi, UPCM Adityanath is admitting they have no leaders in the state. They have reduced their CM face @BSYBJP to a dummy,” Siddaramaiah had tweeted.Hitting back, BJP had then said in a tweet, “Imports? How much low can you stoop Mr. CM? Your attempt at North-South divide is disgusting.”It is not the first time that the issue of Sonia Gandhi’s foreign origin has been raked up during the Karnataka polls.At an election rally on May 1 Modi had dared Rahul Gandhi to talk for 15 minutes about the achievements of the Karnataka government in any language, including his “mother’s mother tongue”.Modi was responding to Rahul Gandhi’s dare to allow him to speak for 15 minutes in Parliament on various issues, including corruption, and that the prime minister will not be able to sit for 15 minutes.”I dare the Congress president to speak in Hindi, English or the mother tongue of his mother to deliver a speech in Karnataka for 15 minutes, without reading out from a piece of paper, on the achievements of the party government…people of Karnataka will draw their own conclusion,” he said.The BJP’s tweet today was also in response to an earlier tweet by Congress party calling Yogi Adityanath by his birth name Ajay Bisht.”We are glad that Mr Ajay Bisht was able to take some lessons of good governance from CM @siddaramaiah and is headedback to be with the people of Uttar Pradesh in their time of need.”The Congress party had referred to Adityanath cutting short his election campaign in Karnataka and returning home following deaths in his state that was ravaged by storm.Almost two years after abandoning a road show in Varanasi ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, Sonia would address a poll rally in Vijayapura today.The then Congress chief Sonia had not campaigned for Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Meghalaya, Tripura, andNagaland Assembly elections.Sonia Gandhi son and successor Rahul Gandhi is currently touring Karnataka extensively. He will visit Chikkaballapuraand Tumakuru districts on the hustings today.

Activists raise questions after Delhi police wrap dead peacock in tricolour before burying it

A dead peacock buried by the Delhi Police personnel after wrapping it in a tricolour has raised several questions of ‘protocol’ and safety of the national bird with activists claiming the forest department should have played a pro-active role in the proper disposal of the carcass.The police was informed on Friday about the bird being found injured outside the High Court.An officer from the Tilak Marg police station said, “The assistant sub-inspector did everything he could to save the bird. He rushed the bird to a hospital in Chandni Chowk where the bird was declared dead.”The bird was then taken to Jaunapur in south Delhi, where a post-mortem was carried out. The police personnel were in touch with the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) officers to ensure that they did not go wrong in handling the national bird, the police official said.After the post-mortem, the police personnel consulted the doctor who had carried it out and the NDMC officials, both of whom suggested that the national bird be buried wrapped in a tricolour, the police official said.The post-mortem report would come in a week’s time which would spell out the exact cause of the peacock’s death, he said.Senior officers from the district said the policemen had disposed of the body of the bird in a “bonafide” manner and after consulting forest and NDMC officials. They said that no action would be taken against the police personnel.However, wildlife activists criticised the handling of the case, saying animals should be preferably be cremated in the presence of forest officials.”Post-mortem has to be done in a supervised environment in the presence of a forest official. The post-mortem has to be photographed and videographed,” Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder and chairman of Wildlife SOS, said.”And, the animal should be preferably cremated in the presence of a forest official, to avoid harvesting of any body parts with an intent to smuggle.,” he said.There is an incinerator in the Delhi Zooas well, the official of the NGO said.Wildlife activist Gauri Maulekhi said that the forest department needs to be pro-active in assisting the police in such cases.”I am not aware of any such protocols. There is no such thing that is followed at all. The point is, that the police did not have any business burying it.”It was the forest department that needed to carry out the post-mortem and send the viscera for forensic examination. The forest department of Delhi does not respond, despite being contacted by the police,” Maulekhi said.She said that she had also written a letter to Chief Wildlife Warden, Delhi, informing him about the issue.”In a case last month, the dead body of a peacock was lying with the police for two days and despite repeated calls to the forest department, nobody came. The forest department should be pro-actively telling the police that we should be informed in such cases.Whatever the police did was in good faith,” she said.

‘No drinking water for 10 years’: People of HD Deve Gowda’s constituency complain about lack of development

On the face of it, many people in the district take pride in the fact that one of India’s prime ministers H D Deve Gowda of JD(S) was from this place, but there is also unhappiness over lack of development, growing unemployment and farmers’ distress.Their main grievance is that the district has not been developed enough like Shivamogga and Bengaluru despite electing political heavyweight Gowda as MP for five times from Hassan, a JD(S) bastion, dominated by Vokkaliga community to which he belongs.As the electioneering has entered the final phase for the May 12 assembly poll, voters are debating about their choice.During 2013, JD(S) had won five out of seven seats in Hassan district, the rest went to Congress.”We are facing drinking water problem for last 10 years. Because of poor rains, the ground water level has gone down and the two borewells which 150 houses depend upon, are not working properly,” Vanjashri Gowda who stays in Sathigala area of Sakleshpur constituency told PTI.As a result, Gowda, who works in a coffee plantation, walks about 2 km daily to fetch drinking water from small streams that flow nearby. “These borewells with hand pumps were installed when Deve Gowda became chief minister for the first time (in 1994). Thereafter, there has been no development,” she says and adds that even roads are equally bad here.Unemployment, crash in coffee and pepper prices, white-stem borer disease in the coffee crop, wild elephant attack on human beings among others are problems haunting people of Sakleshpura constituency, where there is triangular fight between JD(S), Congress and BJP. Malleshappa, who owns 15 acres of coffee plantation in Sakleshpura says, “We had high expectation from Deve Gowda. He is known as ‘mannina maga’ (son of the soil). What has he done for poor farmers?””Pepper prices have crashed due to cheaper imports. If the situation continues, farmers will sell the agriculture land and look for jobs in cities. The price we getfor the produce does not cover the cost of production,” he said.Similarly in the Hassan constituency, unemployment and drinking water problem have become major poll issues.”Youth are getting educated from here but not getting jobs. They have to migrate to Bengaluru for jobs, where with meagre salary they cannot afford a living. There are no industries here,” BJP candidate from Hassan constituency Pritam Gowda told PTI.On the drinking water crisis, he said there is “lack of willingness” from incumbent JD(S) MLA H S Prakash to ensure people get smooth supply of water.”Hemavathi river is just 15 kms away. They have taken water from this river to places like Tiptur, Tumkur and Arsikere through Hassan. Hassan people are not getting drinking water,” he said.The BJP candidate, who is contesting polls for the first time, said, “Deve Gowda has done good things but not good enough.”Defending the development work undertaken by the JD(S), the party candidate and sitting MLA H S Prakash blamed both UPA and NDA government for not releasing funds for addressing the drinking water problem.”Now, Rs 117 crore has been sanctioned under the clean water programme ‘Amruta’. Pipelines have been laid till Hassan. If the work gets completed in the next six months, there will be water supply for 24X7,” he said.Prakash further said that the JD(S) supremo was prime minister for 11 months and as chief minister of the state for 16 months. “He has done enough work. People feel that development can happen only under JD(S).”

I have decided to shut the Finance Ministry till further notice: Rahul Gandhi’s mock PM tweet to FM Jaitley

Latching on to a news report about the absence of Union Minister Arun Jaitley and Secretary Hasmukh Adhia from the Finance Ministry at the same time, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi today took a dig at the government with a mock letter to the minister by the prime minister.Gandhi’s note on Twitter — addressed to the “FM” and signed off by the “Prime Minister” — said it had been decided that the ministry would be shut till further notice.According to the news report which Gandhi posted along with his tweet, Jaitley has not attended office for a month because of a kidney ailment. The report claimed Adhia has taken leave till May 20 to do yoga and meditation with Swami Visharadanand Saraswathy in Mysuru.The absence of the two effectively left the ministry headless, the report added.“Dear FM, as you are indisposed and Finance Secretary is on vacation with his Guru on a quest for inner peace, I have decided to shut the Finance Ministry till further notice,” Gandhi’s tweet said.“The PMO will take all financial policy decisions as before. Prime Minister,” he wrote.Expenditure secretary A N Jha is expected to officiate in Adhia’s absence, the report said.

How can Congress talk about women’s empowerment when they didn’t allow Triple Talaq Bill? PM Modi in Karnataka

Launching fresh salvo against the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday raised questions on the grand old party’s stand on women empowerment, citing its opposition to the bill criminalising triple talaq.Addressing a rally in poll-bound Karnataka, the Prime Minister said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government was the one who has got a tough law to ensure safety of women, and added, “It is the Congress party that did not allow the law on Triple Talaq to be passed. How is the Congress even talking about women empowerment?”The Congress took strong exception to the triple talaq bill and the lesser strength of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Rajya Sabha prevented the bill’s passage in the Upper House and hence, it could not be enacted.Also readWhat’s in a name? Instead of Narendra Swamy, Karnataka CM praises Narendra Modi for state’s development”The Congress has never been serious about the safety of women. Here in Vijayapura, there was a case but what did the Congress government do? Northing,” he added.Prime Minister Modi slammed the Siddaramiah-led Karnataka government over the state of farmers, rural development, among other issues in the state, and stated that it was the Central Government which brought social security schemes for the poor as well as electricity to villages.Also readEven Congress leaders have lost confidence in Rahul Gandhi’s ability to secure victory: PM Modi”The people of Karnataka have decided to punish the Congress party,” Prime Minister Modi remarked, indicating imminent victory for BJP.”Instead of going among the people, the Congress leaders are thinking about what excuses to make about a certain defeat. The reasons for their excuse will include faulty EVMs and other such reasons,” the Prime Minister continued.He further said that instead of taking the society together, the Congress is bothered about votes, “I am here in a land closely associated with Bhagwan Basaveshwara. His philosophy called for taking all sections of society together. Sadly, the Congress government has not followed his principles. All they are bothered about is their votes.”In his address, Prime Minister Modi accredited the saints, seers and mutts in playing a “key role in making the society of Karnataka progressive and harmonious,” and for working to remove human suffering.

SC says Centre in ‘sheer contempt’ for failing to frame scheme for Cauvery water distribution

The Supreme Court today told the Centre that it was in “sheer contempt” of its direction on Cauvery water sharing for failing to frame a scheme for distribution of water between the southern riparian states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Union Territory of Puducherry.The top court directed the Secretary of the Union Water Resources Ministry to personally appear before it on May 14 with a draft of the Cauvery management scheme to implement its verdict on water sharing between four states including Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It had in February asked the Centre to formulate a scheme to ensure compliance of its judgement on the decades-old Cauvery dispute. A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra told the Centre that once the judgment has been delivered on the issue, it has to be implemented.While posting the matter for May 14, the bench, which was not happy with the development, said the Centre was in a “sheer contempt”. “We do not want to come back to square one. Once the judgment has been delivered, it has to be implemented,” the bench also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said. Attorney General K K Venugopal said the Centre was seeking time in view of the fact that the Union Cabinet has not met due to the ongoing campaigning for the assembly polls in Karnataka.Senior advocate Shekhar Naphade , appearing for Tamil Nadu, opposed the AG’s plea and said “this is the fit case for contempt. Somebody has to be sent to jail”. The apex court had earlier asked the Centre to formulate a scheme to ensure compliance of its judgement on the decades-old Cauvery dispute. It had modified the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) award of 2007 and made it clear that it will not be extending time for this on any ground.The top court had on February 16 raised the 270 tmcft share of Cauvery water for Karnataka by 14.75 tmcft and reduced Tamil Nadu’s share, while compensating it by allowing extraction of 10 tmcft groundwater from the river basin, saying the issue of drinking water has to be placed on a “higher pedestal”.

Karnataka Elections 2018: RSS is just like Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, says Rahul Gandhi

Pitching himself as an alternative to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said he was willing to be the Prime Minister if the Congress emerged as the single-largest party. He said a grand opposition unity, with the Congress leading the charge and improving its performance in the northern states, would sink the BJP in the general elections. “That depends on how well the Congress party does… If the Congress party is the biggest party, then yes,” he said, while responding to questions on him becoming the Prime Minister. Gandhi was speaking at an interaction with eminent personalities in Bengaluru on Tuesday morning. In September 2017, Gandhi said he was ready to be the Congress prime ministerial nominee. “It is highly unlikely that the BJP will win the next government. It is close to impossible that Narendra Modi will be the next Prime Minister of India. The deadliest thing in India is called opposition unity. It will smash everything in its path,” Gandhi said. He explained how his father Rajiv Gandhi had won 415 seats and 40% of the vote in 1984, but could not withstand the force of opposition unity in 1989. Today, the opposition was united against the BJP and RSS in this ideological fight, with the Congress serving as the platform. Gandhi said if the SP, BSP and the Congress joined hands in Uttar Pradesh, there was a “guarantee that the BJP does not get more than five seats.” This would bring down the BJP’s seats in the Lok Sabha from 270 to even 200. “At 200, Narendra Modi cannot be the Prime Minister anyways because none of his allies are going to support him over (Nitin) Gadkari or someone else,” he said. The main political fight will happen in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, where the BJP is fighting the Congress. “In the entire northern belt, the Congress party ended up with practically zero seats,” Gandhi said, claiming they would emerge trumps in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh. “If you remove UP, if you remove Bihar, you have a BJP which is unlikely to win the elections,” he explained. “If the Congress is able to act as a platform, the BJP doesnt stand a chance. The question in my mind is, what does that government look like, that has so many different parties?” Rahul said. “There is a connection between the type of politics that Narendra Modi and (Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi) Adityanath do and the anger and violence that you see. I think it is purposely generated,” said Rahul. “If you look at the discussion that is taking place in India today, it is only about the past… The design is, you involve everybody in a conversation about the past and then you take away the country’s wealth. The idea is, certain limited groups of people capture a tremendous amount of wealth and the rest of India is involved in a conversation about the past,” he allegedThe Congress chief likened the RSS to the Muslim Brotherhood in countries like Egypt and Turkey, which he said captured institutions. “(The idea is) we cannot win political power again and again, so let us capture institutions,” he alleged, claiming that “demonetisation was the RSS and BJP telling India that there is not a single institution in India that is immune to us.”

Even Congress leaders have lost confidence in Rahul Gandhi’s ability to secure victory: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday claimed that even senior Congress leaders have lost confidence in Rahul Gandhi’s ability to secure victory for the party in Karnataka.”Even Congress leaders have begun to feel that the son would not be able to help the party win Karnataka. So, send the mother to ensure its candidates can save their security deposit,” Modi said.The Prime Minister also accused the Congress of pursuing the policy of “divide and rule”, and asserted the party would be uprooted from Karnataka in the Assembly elections.Modi lashed out at the Siddaramaiah government over alleged corruption, saying there is not a single minister who is not facing allegations of financial wrongdoing.”Congress believes in the policy of divide and rule…divide on the basis of caste and religion….make brother fight brother. But people of this land of Basaveshwara will not allow it to happen,” he told an election rally here in Bijapur district.Modi repeatedly referred to Basaveshwara, the 12th-century reformer-statesman, who is worshiped by the Lingayats, in an apparent effort to win over the numerically strong and influential community.The state’s ruling Congress has recommended religious minority tag for the Lingayats, a traditional vote base of the BJP, a move, many feel, was aimed at splitting their votes.BJP’s chief ministerial candidate Yeddyurappa belongs to the Lingayat community.”Tell me the name of a single minister who is not facing allegations of corruption,” he said, a day after Siddaramaiah sent legal notices to Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, threatening to file civil and criminal defamation suit against them for making unfounded allegations against him.
