In a move aimed at consolidation of opposition forces, six constituents of the erstwhile ‘Janata Parivar’ will soon become one party as their leaders today authorised Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav to work out the “modalities” in that direction.In their first joint action outside Parliament, SP, Janata Dal (Secular), Rashtriya Janata Dal, Janata Dal (United), Indian National Lok Dal and Samajwadi Janata Party will hold a ‘dharna’ here on December 22 against government’s “failure” to bring back black money stashed abroad, its alleged U-turn on farmers’ issue and rising unemployment.The leaders of the six parties on Thursday “authorised” Mulayam at a meeting at his official residence to “work out modalities” for becoming one party through a merger, JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar told reporters here. Seeking to dispel any ambiguity as to the proposed merger, Kumar said that all of them felt there should be “one party” as they have the same philosophy and principles.Asked whether the move to join forces was borne of a ‘fear of Narendra Modi’, Kumar said it that not the case but the aim was to form a platform in the current political atmosphere. He said that the six parties would like to work in tandem with entities like the Left Front, which would be approached. Kumar did not, however, elaborate further.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today said that instead of displaying political might, Prime Minister Narendra Modi should reach out to the people of Jammu and Kashmir with tangible confidence building measures for providing a healing touch to their sufferings.”Instead of creating an impression that BJP is trying to conquer Jammu and Kashmir through political might, Modi should reach out to the people of the State with tangible confidence building measures to provide a healing touch to their sufferings,” PDP’s Lok Sabha member Tariq Hamid Karra said.Addressing a series of election meetings in Batmaloo constituency of Srinagar, Karra alleged, “BJP and RSS are not only polarizing people on communal and ethnic lines, but an impression is fast gaining ground in Kashmir that the Saffron brigade is trying to conquer the State using political might and timeserving proxies.”He alleged that BJP’s affronting show of might in Kashmir is loaded with “dangerous” consequences and it could fuel fresh wave of alienation and distrust among the people, especially the youth.”The political subversion and uncertainty that the state has faced in the last seven decades has already taken a heavy toll on its polity, economy and human resource and it can ill afford any further disruption,” Karra said.He said large number of people participating in polls doesn’t suggest that the problems of the state have been resolved. “Why did the armed conflict erupt then in early nineties? Why did 2010 unrest happen if people had participated in similar numbers in 2008 assembly polls?” he questioned.”If elections are really the solution of the Kashmir issue, why isn’t AFSPA being removed as so many polls have been conducted in the State since the inception of the controversial law?” he asked. He said BJP leaders are flooding the State only to indulge in “rhetorical melodramatics” without extending any substantial financial or material help to the State to deal with its enormous economic problems.”Even the flood-affected have been left high and dry both by the BJP government at the centre and the NC-Congress coalition government in the State,” he alleged. Seeking a decisive mandate for PDP, Karra said, “We have still a lot to accomplish in the interest of the people of the State and our struggle would continue for that.”
Seeking increased water supply through Munak canal and construction of more night shelters for the homeless, Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today discussed various issues pertaining to Delhi with LT Governor Najeeb Jung.Water from the Munak canal is expected to be supplied to the water treatment plants which cater to the residential areas of West and South Delhi. Despite Delhi having paid money to Haryana for construction of Munak canal, the national capital is not getting its share of 80 MGD (million gallons daily) water.Naidu spoke to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on the issue of water supply through the canal. According to a senior UD Ministry official, Naidu discussed several issues including regularisation of unauthorized colonies, allocation of houses built under JNNURM, preparation of standardized maps up to 200 sq mt to enable online processing for approval and implementation of Swachh Bharat Mission with Jung.Jung informed that allocation of dwelling units built for the weaker sections and poor under JNNURM will commence and will be completed by February next year. There are about 20,000 such houses to be allotted to the eligible beneficiaries.He further said that Delhi government will soon send its proposals regarding actions to be taken in the matter of regularization of unauthorized colonies. Jung said adequate measures have been taken to provide shelter to the homeless under which about 40,000 blankets have been arranged. He said efforts are being made to ensure availability of water and medical care at night shelters.
Seeking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal attention towards Odisha’s requirement in railway sector, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday said industrial activity in the state requires a well planned railway infrastructure for its sustainability.”The nature of industrial activities in the state requires a robust and well planned railway infrastructure for its sustainability,” Patnaik wrote to the prime minister ahead of the Railway budget and sought his favourable consideration towards the state.Stating that the railway route length and rail density in Odisha is well below national average as also substantially lower than that in neighbouring states, Patnaik said, in contrast gross earnings from various stations in the state of Odisha is estimated to be in excess of Rs 14,000 crore during the year 2013-2014.Patnaik in his letter said, “I would request you to kindly ensure allocation of a sizeable part of the revenues generated from Odisha within the state itself for strengthening and expanding rail infrastructure”.”The central government has initiated many ambitious projects like dedicated freight corridor aligned with mega industrial hubs, national road expressways and high speed train projects which appear to have completely bypassed Odisha although some of the country’s largest investment in the steel, aluminium and power sectors are coming up here,” he pointed out.Noting that the Odisha government has taken important steps to create greenfield ports which will be the country’s gateway to international maritime trade as well as for coastal shipping between the east and west coasts of India, Patnaik said, “I have been requesting the Ministry of Railways to put in place a time-bound Infrastructure upgradation arrangement for the ports coming up on the Odisha coast.” Asynchronised development plan between the ports and related rail connectivity is a necessity for maximising economic gains, he said.
Seeking to create awareness about legal rights of women, Kerala State Women’s Commission has come out with a hand book with details of various existing laws for their protection.The book, to be distributed free of cost across the state, will also contain around 70 helpline and emergency numbers, they said.The handbook will give women an outlook about various pro-women laws and regulations, Commission member secretary K K Prasanna Kumar said.”Details of about 20 laws which protect the interests of women in the society, including in home and office are there in the handbook.

Government has initiated a move to bring a bill in Parliament to make marriage laws more women friendly and allow both parties to file for divorce on the ground of “irretrievable breakdown” of marriage.The Law Ministry has circulated a draft cabinet note on Marriage Laws (amendment) Bill for inter-ministerial consultations. Once it receives the feedback, newly-appointed Law Minister DV Sadananda Gowda will take the proposal to the Union Cabinet for a final nod, a top Ministry official said.According to the draft, marriage laws will now become more women friendly with a slew of measures being proposed including providing for sufficient compensation for the wife and children from the husband’s immovable property in case of a divorce. Seeking to put an end to prolonged legal battles in divorce cases, the Law Ministry has proposed that courts will be free to exercise discretion in granting divorce after three years if one of the partners does not move a second ‘joint application’ for divorce with mutual consent.There is a provision for ensuring compensation for the wife and children from the husband’s immovable property in case of a divorce and the amount will be decided by the court. It has also been proposed to empower courts to decide the compensation amount for a wife and children from the husband’s inherited and inheritable property once a marriage legally ends. A new section 13 (f) has been added to this effect.A six to 18 month waiting period or cooling off period already exists in the present law when the two parties move joint application for divorce with mutual consent. The previous UPA government had struggled for a consensus on the bill after it was first introduced in Rajya Sabha in 2010. It had gone back the then Cabinet on four occasions for changes. It was finally passed in August, 2013 in the upper house but could not be cleared by the lower house. The legislation lapsed following dissolution of 15th Lok Sabha.The present draft is on the lines of the previous bill and any change would be made after inter-ministerial consultations. The proposal, which seeks to alter the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, and the Special Marriage Act, 1954, introduces the option of divorce on grounds of “irretrievable breakdown of marriage”.Legislative Department in the Law Ministry is the nodal unit dealing with marriage laws in India.
Seeking a complete ban on cow slaughter in the country, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today said he would urge the Union government to bring a central legislation for the purpose so that all states can follow it.”I am surprised to find that a large number of cattle are being smuggled from Odisha to Bangladesh via West bengal. I urge the state to stop the illegal practice,” Swamy told reporters here. Stating that the Supreme Court in an order in 1958 had categorically said that eating beef was not essential part of Islam, Swamy said, “their protection is considered sacred for Hinduism.”There should be a total ban on cow slaughter, he said adding the directive principles in the Constitution also suggests protection of cow. Claiming that milk of Indian cow had many medicinal values which is not found in the milk of cattle in other countries,Swamy said, “New Zealand is planning to procure high quality cow for the purpose of health care”. Earlier, while addressing a meeting in a private university, Swamy said there were about 50 million of cattle in India. However, milk production in India was much less than that of the other countries.

Seeking global cooperation in combating cyber-crime, India has said social media is increasingly being used to instigate communal riots and women and children are equally vulnerable in cyberspace as in the real world.Addressing the 83rd General Assembly of Interpol in Monaco on Tuesday, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said rise of social networks has increased the diffusion of private data users that can be potentially stolen and misused.”Women and children are equally vulnerable in cyberspace as in the real world, if not more. In recent years, the Internet and social media are being increasingly used to instigate communal riots to destabilise the state,” he said.During the riots in Muzaffarnagar in 2013, government had said that social media was used extensively by anti-social elements to spread hatred and misinformation among communities. Similarly in 2012, the mass exodus of people of northeast from south India had taken place allegedly due to the misinformation campaign carried out through Internet and social media.The Minister asked each member of the Interpol to take a pledge to strengthen the strategy relating to cyber-crime. Singh said that advancements in information and communication technologies have transformed the world into a global village and these changes have accelerated the pace, volume and scope of international trade and commerce.He said the dynamics of globalisation, the free movements of people, goods and financial transactions across borders have enabled international organised crime groups to expand both their global reach and criminal business interests.”Anonymity offered by the Internet technology has facilitated communication between the members of terror groups without much fear of being intercepted by law enforcement agencies. “Information Technology has radically changed the way people work, communicate and interact; it has also altered the work culture of criminals,” Singh said.
Former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi
Former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi today charged former Chief Minister Nitish Kumar with running corruption and crime protection bureau to ensure survival of a “fragile” JD(U) government in Bihar.”You may not be running a marriage bureau, but you are definitely running corruption and crime protection bureau otherwise your (JD-U) government will fall,” Modi told reporters.Days ago, the former chief minister had slammed his former deputy for casting aspersions on him vis-a-vis medicine purchase scam by saying that he was not running a marriage bureau. Kumar was referring to Modi’s charge that close relatives of the former chief minister were involved in the medicine purchase scam.The senior BJP leader lashed out at the JD(U) leader for going overboard on getting a clean chit from the Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh in the medicine purchase scam saying that it has not come a surprise as a bureaucrat was bound to comply with the directives of political masters.Trashing the former chief minister’s claim about being a man of integrity and honesty, Modi said that if it was so then why was he running away from asking the JD(U) government from recommending CBI probe in the medicine purchase scam? Pointing to Kumar’s alleged culpability in the medicine purchase scam running into about Rs 14 crore that took place when he held the charge of health department last year, Modi said that the former chief minister cannot get away by simply saying that the files with regard to purchase of medicine were not brought to his table for sanction. The medicine purchase scam has been widely covered by the media and the matter was taken to court by petitioners, but the former chief minister never took cognizance and intervened to fast track the probe and take measures to bring the guilty to book, Modi said.”A chief minister or a minister must not run away from discharging duties on one pretext or other,” Modi said.Referring to the medicine purchase scam, the former deputy chief minister said many officials charged with involvement in the said scam were close relatives of the former chief minister’s trusted partymen who “tied his hands against cracking whip against those errant officials.”Seeking to make the medicine purchase scam an electoral issue in the run up to the assembly polls in Bihar next year, Modi said that the BJP will chart out a course of action after Chhath festivity to carry out agitational programmes throughout the state to corner the JD(U) government.The former deputy chief minister also tried to put the state government in dock for issuing transfer orders “every now and then in violation of guidelines laid down in this regard which says that officials can not be transferred except for exigencies after June.”
