The Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, 2014 The Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, 2014 was introduced by the Minister of Human Resource Development, Ms. Smriti Zubin Irani, in the Lok Sabha on August 14, 2014. The Bill amends the Central Universities Act, 2009.

Ram Vilas Paswan says NDA intact despite trouble in Maharashtra, Haryana: BJP and its oldest ally Shiv Sena may have parted ways and the Modi wave may have taken a beating in the assembly by-elections but another key NDA constituent Lok Janshakti Party does not feel that it may be the beginning of the saffron coalition's erosion. LJP chief and Union Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan also does not agree with reports that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was overwhelming in the Cabinet in which ministers had no freedom to function. He says Lok Sabha Elections and assembly polls are different from each other and issues are different. "Modi says he will not target Bal Thackeray. Shiv Sena says it will not attack BJP at the Centre and would be part of the NDA coalition. This sums up the relationship among allies at the Centre," Paswan told PTI analysing the coalition troubles at the state level and downplaying their impact at the national level. Seeking to soft-pedal the electoral reverses of BJP in recent assembly b ...

AAP’s stance on contesting elections Aam Aadmi Party is not contesting the Assembly elections in Maharashtra. Lok Sabha election results brought a realization that it is not possible to win elections without a strong grass root organizational structure. In addition we realized that due to the lack of resources and inability of party to give financial support, many candidates had to struggle to fight elections. It has therefore been decided that we should concentrate on strengthening our organization, establishing processes and systems, building the infrastructure for communication with our volunteers and empowering our volunteers through training, such that when we do contest elections we will have a a strong volunteer base and organizational strength which will enable us to fight traditional politics. Presently AAP Maharashtra will not contest any elections and we will also not support any one in the forthcoming assembly elections, neither independent candidates nor any political parties. Also if any A ...

Thestate government is now blaming the Central government for it. It says it has not received adequate grants for the projects.Though the projects were started under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewable Mission (JNURM), the SAD tried to usurp credit for these projects. It even sought votes citing the projects.“The Centre has not sent grant for the projects. We will honour all promises. We are only awaiting word from the Centre,” said VK Garg, Chief Engineer, Local Bodies. Of the 31 projects, 11 were in the Bathinda parliamentary constituency.In Rasulra, located on the Khanna-Malerkotla road,untreated waste flows into the village, rendering the village land infertile.Local resident H ...
Narendra Modi government moves to repeal 323 archaic laws: Moving to weed out archaic laws, government has identified at least 323 Acts to be repealed and bills in this regard would be pushed during the next session of Parliament. It is also working to junk 700 Appropriation Acts passed by Parliament over the years, which have no relevance anymore as they have one-time use of enabling withdrawal of funds by the government. "While a bill is pending in Parliament to repeal 32 amendment Acts and four principal Acts, we plan to bring another bill to repeal 287 similar Acts," Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here. The bill introduced in Lok Sabha during the Budget session to repeal a total of 36 Acts is now with a Parliamentary Standing Committee which is expected to give its report ahead of the Winter session likely to begin in November. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, soon after taking over in May, had identified repeal of "archaic" laws and rules as one of his priorities. During his address at ...

When the entire nation (well, almost...) is celebrating the success of the Mangalyaan and basking in pride, there have been a few interesting remarks that I have come across on the social media and whatsapp groups. The most recurring ones have been in the line of "filling hungry stomachs must be higher in the pecking order than looking out for what is in Mars" because it cost the government of India, a whopping Rs 454 crores!! So I decided to look into few numbers in recent times that was spent not on filling stomachs and get a perspective. Rs 950 crores collected by Chennai Express and Dhoom 3. Rs 2,991 crores spent on Haj subsidies in 2013. Rs 4,960 crores collected by the IPL and CLT20 as revenue in 2013 Rs 6,300 crores spent by the govt of Karnataka in loan waivers in 2014 alone Rs 11,500 crores spent on the Commonwealth Games 2010 (not considering Suresh Kalmadi and inflation). Rs 30,000 crores spent on the Lok Sabha Elections 2014. Finally the Food Security Bill which was "supposed" to fill the hun ...

No trace of administration in Kashmir: Asaduddin Owaisi Srinagar, Sep 19: Asaduddin Owaisi, the Member of Parliament (MP) from Hyderabad constituency and President of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, who toured flood-hit areas of Srinagar downtown and uptown, Friday said there was no trace of administration in the State.

"Shadow" Prime Minister is a. Deputy Prime Minister b. The Cabinet Minister who presides over the Cabinet meeting in the absence of the Prime Minister c. Senior most Cabinet Minister d. Leader of Opposition party in Lok Sabha
Xi exception for Sonia, Sonia Gandhi will have a meeting with visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping, facilitated by an NDA govt that has blocked the Congress claim to the post of leader of the Opposition. Visiting foreign heads of state or government usually meet the Lok Sabha leader of the Opposition, equivalent in status to the shadow PM under the Westminster model of democracy that India follows. A leader of the Opposition enjoys the perks due to a cabinet minister. But Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has refused the Congress, the second-largest party in the lower House, the status of principal Opposition because its 44 seats are fewer than 10 per cent of the House’s total strength, 543. When Australian PM Tony Abbott visited India — the first foreign head of government to do so since Modi’s inauguration — the foreign office did not schedule meetings between him and any Opposition leader.

How Congress lost Amar Singh: He can be seen these days cosying up to his old friend turned foe, Mulayam Singh Yadav. Rumours are that a Rajya Seat for Amar Singh may be in the offing. But what is interesting is that Singh had first tried to align with the Congress. Before the Lok Sabha polls, he even met party general secretary in charge of UP Madhusudan Mistry, for a possible ticket from the Congress. However, Mistry simply read from his files when Singh came calling, then looked up from under his bushy eyebrows and asked, "But I don't see an application from you." A fuming Singh just got up and left. Later, a Congress leader quipped, "What did Mistry think Amar Singh wanted? A job in his garage?" This story is doing the rounds at AICC as an example to show how out of touch with reality Mistry is. It is of course another matter that Mistry continues to be in charge of ticket distribution for the UP bypolls slated in September.
Will Modi conduct India’s namkaran?-Prof Kancha Ilaiah article in,Asian age 22 Aug 2014 " If Sangh Parivar forces keep baying for cultural nationalist agendas, Narendra Modi will become helpless… he will not be able to stop these culture-vultures and his corporate development agenda will undergo a change" There is a slow but systematic attempt to change India’s name from Bharat to Hindustan — playing up the word “Hindu” in Hindustan and trying to repackage it as the abode of the Hindus. B.R. Ambedkar and his team that drafted the Constitution of India consciously avoided the term “Hindustan” as they could foresee its implications in a land that takes pride in its diversity. Shortly after the Bharatiya Janata Party toppled the power equations in Delhi and Narendra Modi took over as Prime Minister, a Shiv Sena MP, Prataprao Jadhav, remarked in the Lok Sabha that a saffron flag should be hoisted atop the historic Red Fort as “Hindustan” belongs to Hindus. His lone argument was that Hindu- ...
Badal Sahib's trusted friend: Kanwar Sandhu Today is the polling day in both Talwandi Sabo and Patiala bypolls in Punjab and let us see how the voters express their preferences. Since the results will be our in four days time, we will not know the outcome immediately. However, just a day before the polling, a very unfortunate incident was reported in Jagaram Tirath Village, the native village of Baljinder Kaur, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate. The AAP candidate and her driver, Gurbux Singh, were attacked when they objected to some Akali Dal workers not only campaigning after the time for the same was up but also allegedly distributing money and liquor. During this attack, the driver was badly injured and hospitalised. While efforts are on to reach a compromise, the important question is: who is this person involved in the attack? He is none other than a person called Dyal Singh Kolianwali, who is so close to the Punjab CM, Parkash Singh Badal, that he celebrates the CM's birthday at his native village ...

After having stood out as the worst ever government even by NC standards, the Omar Abdullah government has exposed itself as the worst loser as well. Though victory and defeat are part of democracy, yet NC leadership is severely unnerved by their defeat in Lok Sabha polls and the prospect of imminent rout in the forthcoming assembly elections, and that is why in desperation they are continuing to pushed the state into anarchy and chaos. This anarchist approach adopted by ruling NC government is further taking the sate into despair and alienation and the NC leadership instead of working seriously for the people’s cause, has further alienated with its utterly callous attitude and mis-governance. And even after having read the writing on the wall, ruling party leadership has adopted an ostrich like attitude and is now trying to mislead the people through fake promises and deceptive announcements.

Bhagat Singh Bhagat Singh Date of Birth : Sep 27, 1907 Date of Death : Mar 23, 1931 Place of Birth : Jalandhar Bhagat Singh (September 27, 1907 – March 23, 1931) was an Indian revolutionary, considered to be one of the most famous martyrs of the Indian freedom struggle. For this reason, he is often referred to as Shaheed Bhagat Singh (the word shaheed means “martyr”). Bhagat Singh was born into a Sikh family to Sardar Kishan Singh and Vidyavati in the Khatkar Kalan village near Banga in the Jalandhar district of Punjab. His uncle, Sardar Ajit Singh, as well as his father, were great freedom fighters, so Bhagat Singh grew up in a patriotic atmosphere. Ajit Singh established the Indian Patriots’ Association, along with Syed Haidar Raza, to organize the peasants against the Chenab Canal Colony Bill. He also established the secret organization, the Bharat Mata Society. At an early age, Bhagat Singh started dreaming of uprooting the British empire.

Amid strong protests by ruling benches, he suggested that BJP and its affiliates were trying to "divide the society" to retain power and warned that if it was not controlled, "we will repent". Naming VHP and Bajrang Dal and referring to certain comments made by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Kharge said the "communal forces" had got emboldened after BJP came to power as they feel that they have "political power" now and would be protected. "We talk abou ...
Slogan 7 :) Garibi Hatao (remove poverty) This slogan was given by late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the 1971 Lok Sabha Elections, which she won by a landslide margin. The slogan cheered up millions of poor people across India, for which Indira Gandhi launched the 20-point programme.

In his fiery speech in Lok Sabha, Yogi Adityanath ruefully said that the Opposition has been working on Pakistan's agenda. We think, Pakistan's agenda is to destabilise and break india by inciting India's own population against it. Pakistan has achieved partial success in J&K, where jihadis demand separation. Congress and allies by creating thousands of divides (like Sachar Commitee, Communal Violence Bill, Minority Reservation etc.) within our nation and appeasing the divisive anti-indian forces, is toeing the same line as Pakistan. They almost gifted Siachin to Pakistan, and instead of countering bloody terrorist attacks on the nation – kept harping about their figment of imagination named ‘Saffron Terror’. All of this and uncountable more facts justify Yogi Adityanath's statement. But that's just us. What do YOU think? Let Congress know your opinion. Thanks _ You can watch Yogi Adityanath's ‘politically-incorrect’ speech here: can check out the truth of Sachar Committee here:

Amit Shah has also appointed BJP National Executive Member Dr. Nirmal Singh as Chairman, Election Campaign Committee for forthcoming J&K Assembly polls, a move that political observers considered just short of projecting him the party’s Chief Ministerial candidate. The effort is seen as a part of the party's move to revamp its Jammu and Kashmir state unit and prepare itself for the upcoming Assembly polls. The appointment of Dr. Nirmal Singh, as Chairman of Election Campaign Committee has been made keeping in view his vast experience in organizational and political matters. It has been welcomed by the party cadre as they are of the firm belief that Dr. Singh’s close rapport with the ground level activists in each constituency ...

Happy Independence Day India has a long history to tell about itself since independent till now. On the occasion of India’s 68th Independence Day, here are some interesting and unknown facts related to India and independence. 1. National flag was hoisted first on August 7, 1906 at the Parsee Bagan Square in Calcutta. The flag was composed of horizontal strips of red, yellow and green. The red strip at the top had eight white lotuses embossed on it in a row. The green strip had a white sun on the left and a white crescent and star on the right. 2. The name `India' is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the first inhabitants of India. The Sanskrit name for India is Bharat Ganarajya. That is the reason why it is also called Bharat. The name “India” comes from the Indus River, which is where earliest settlers made their homes. 3. The current flag has three colours in it. The top strip saffron stands for courage and sacrifice; the middle portion white for peace, truth, ...

Sikh MP spoke in Bangla Tribune News Service New Delhi, August 12 Darjeeling MP SS Ahluwalia won many hearts in Lok Sabha today when he chose to speak in Bangla while batting for the inclusion of a local north Bengali language in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution. As Ahluwalia spoke in chaste Bangla, MPs in the House rushed to give him a sobriquet: “The Sikh who speaks Bangla”. The occasion was Zero Hour and Ahluwalia seized it to demand the inclusion of “Kamtapuri” in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution which provides official recognition to 22 Indian languages. As a representative of Bengali speaking people in Darjeeling, Ahluwalia recalled the majesty of Kamtapuri language which is spoken by the local Rajvanshi tribe of north Bengal. He also mentioned in his speech that Baishila Roy, a courageous leader who fought for the dignity of the Rajvanshis should be made part of the school syllabi in Bengal. Comparing Roy with martyr Bhagat Singh, Ahluwalia said, “Only when Kamtapuri is give ...

Electoral disaster for Indian Left: What is to be done? Part One Written by Major Singh, Hamid Alizadeh and Fred Weston Monday, 28 July 2014 India has seen two very powerful general strikes in the past two years, revealing a sharp class polarization in the country, and yet we have the disastrous result in the recent Indian elections for the Communist and left parties. This apparent contradiction has brought into sharp focus the role of the leaders of these parties and their total inability to offer a way out of the impasse they themselves have been responsible for creating. In the 2014 elections for the Indian Parliament (Lok Sabha), held in April/May, the right-wing reactionary BJP party won a clear victory of 282 seats of the total 543 – ten more than would be needed for an absolute majority. Thus the party can rule alone without having to form a coalition. How was it possible for Naredna Modi, a man connected to the most violent, reactionary and chauvinist forces in India, to now comfortably take his ...

Prime Minister of India. Biography Narendra Modi’s journey began in the town of Vadnagar in North Gujarat’s Mehsana district. Born on the 17th of September 1950, Narendra Modi is the 3rd among the 6 children of Hiraba and Damodardas Modi. Narendra Modi’s childhood was one of immense struggle and difficulty. As a youngster he helped his family run a tea-stall at the local railway station to make ends meet. Yet, these hardships did not deter Narendra Modi. He remained a devoted student, always eager to learn something new. From his younger days, Narendra Modi was drawn towards serving the society. It was this passion to serve that drew Narendra Modi to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a socio-cultural organisation devoted to the development and regeneration of India in 1972. Being in the RSS meant Narendra Modi had to travel all over India, giving him a first hand experience of India’s diversity, people’s joys and their problems. In the RSS, Narendra Modi made a distinguished mark due to his ...

New Delhi, July 30 The Lok Sabha on Wednesday passed the budget for the national capital by a voice vote. The task, normally carried out in the Delhi Assembly, had to be taken up by the parliament as the state is under president's rule. "The Lok Sabha is taking up the budget as it is a constitutional necessity," Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said in the Lok Sabha. On July 18, Jaitley had presented Delhi's Rs.36,776 crore budget for fiscal 2014-15 in parliament, proposing a new specialty hospital and 100 ambulances for accident victims, while keeping tax rates unchanged. The budget provides for a Rs.260 crore power subsidy for small consumers, ranging from Rs.0.80-Rs.1.20 per unit, four new sewage treatment plants, 50 dialysis centres and Rs.2,400 crore for education. Of the total outlay, the maximum amount - Rs.3,702 crore - has been set aside for the transport sector followed by the allocation of Rs.2,724 crore for the health sector. In his reply to the debate Wednesday, the Finance Minister said Delhi h ...

Members of the Rajya Sabha Wednesday complained that "stale food" was being served to them in the Parliament canteen, and said a few members fell ill because of it. Raising the issue in the house, Janata Dal-United leader K.C.

"Members are falling ill after eating in the Parliament canteen... Ramgopal Yadav and Jaya Bachchan both fell ill after eating there," Tyagi said. In a lighter vein, Tyagi said: "Is it a conspiracy to keep opposition members away from the house?" Adding to it, Jaya Bachchan said this has been happening regularly. "It has been happening since last 4-5 years... Stale food is being served in the canteen," she said. Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said the government will look into the issue. "We have taken note of it. I will call the canteen and check what is happening. We must not discuss this ...

An Open Letter to the New PM of India Dear Mr. PM, First things first, many congratulation to you for sweeping the 16th Lok Sabha Elections – a mighty feat in itself. Though I am against the ideology propogated by your party and would not have liked you to win, I would still give credit where it is due – You worked really hard, with a purpose/ goal set in your mind, executed your plan to the T and were able to sell to the people a dream on which most of the other parties failed. Your entire campaign proceeded with a ‘perfect’ thought – Ends are important irrespective of the means even though in the earlier days it used to be other way round. However, in hindsight, when I think of the past months running up to the elections I personally feel that these elections were the most expensive that independent India ever experienced. Across the various parties I saw HUGE hoardings, placards, stages like a fortress with air-conditioning, chartered planes, n number of cars and bikes, dedicated ‘topis’ ...

THE KASHMIR LOOT: Ahmed Ali Fayyaz: Srinagar, June 28: Two J&K Minister’s sons on Kashmir Tourism’s USA junket: An official agency has discovered that Director Tourism Kashmir had taken not only the CM’s Political Secretary Tanvir Sadiq but also the sons of two Ministers of Mr Omar Abdullah’s Cabinet---including Tourism Minister Ghulam Ahmad Mir and his son---on an American junket in April 2014. Rs 4 crore was reportedly spent, half of it from the taxpayers’ money, for the pleasure trip of the politicians and their family members to Tampa, Florida. How is CM going to make good this damage which has cost his party all three seats in recent Lok Sabha Elections?

AAP and BJP in an 'auto' war: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is probably the only political party in the world that has an ‘auto cell’, the ‘auto’ representing the 100,000-plus autorickshaw drivers who eke out a living driving autorickshaws, a solid chunk of votes if they vote en masse for any one party. In the last Delhi Assembly elections, the majority of autorickshaw drivers voted for AAP, and the party romped home in many seats, catapulting Arvind Kejriwal into the CM’s chair. Then, Kejriwal & co quit and AAP delivered a dud in all seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi. Right now, autorickshaw drivers are divided between AAP and BJP though the count will still go in favour of AAP. With another round of Delhi elections slated, AAP and BJP are fighting an ‘auto-war’. Both parties are out to prove who serves the interests of autorickshaw drivers more. The Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), BJP’s trade union arm, called for a day-long auto-strike on Monday. Drivers aligned with AAP were forced to fall in ...
Every fifth Lok Sabha MP a dynast: While dynastic politics may have receded in the Lok Sabha, it is alive and kicking in states. 1 in 5 MPS of this Lok Sabha belongs to a political dynasty, down from one in three dynasts in the previous House, according to data collected by Kanchan Chandra, a political scientist at New York University. "Dynastic representation has declined following the ascension of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to power. In 2009, 29 per cent of Members of Parliament (MPs) had a dynastic background. That (proportion) has dropped to 21 per cent in 2014," Chandra wrote in an article in the July 12 issue of the Economic and Political Weekly. The new Cabinet reflects this change as well. Manmohan Singh's cabinet had 36 per cent of ministers belonging to political dynasties. Narendra Modi's Cabinet has 24 per cent of ministers whose family members have been in politics. The BJP, which swept the recently concluded Lok Sabha Elections, is a cadre-based party and is less likely to field dynast ...
[From PD Rai, MP Lok Sabha] Sikkim Krantikari Morcha's Press Statement released today through Shri KN Lepcha is an exercise in distorting reality. The SDF Party and its leaders have time and again reiterated their unequivocal stand that they will always safeguard the rights of Sikkimese people in the spirit of Article 371F. The statement is yet another attempt by the SKM party to obfuscate the issue of Article 371F to further their vested interests. It deserves to be condemned in the strongest of terms. Chief Minister Shri Pawan Chamling's simple thanks to the people of South and West Districts for reposing their faith in Sikkim Democratic Front for a record fifth term has been distorted and quoted out of context. The press release has also distorted my words which I spoke in the Lok Sabha when I apprised the Finance Minister of our long pending demand that Sikkim's Old Settlers should also be exempted from Income Tax. For Shri Lepcha's benefit, and to set the record straight, here are my exact words as a ...

Jaitley offers only partial tax relief for investors in debt MFs, says govt committed to lower taxes Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had some cheerful news for investors in debt-oriented mutual funds who had sold their holdings ahead of the Union Budget by sparing them from higher capital gains tax, even as he extended tax sops to the wind power sector as part of the Modi government's plan to promote clean energy. Winding up the debate on the Finance Bill in the Lok Sabha on Friday, Jaitley said the government is committed to boosting economic activity to put the country back on a high-growth trajectory, creating more jobs without burdening people and would soon take a decision on controversial tax avoidance rules. The minister said the high tax rate of 20% on debt mutual funds will apply from July 11, the day after the budget was presented, and not from April 1. The Finance Bill was subsequently passed by the Lok Sabha by voice vote. The change is aimed at ending the tax arbitrage enjoyed by short-term inv ...

Today's History-On July 25th 1997, K.R. Narayanan was sworn in as the tenth President of India becoming the first Dalit to hold the prestigious office. It was due to a request from Indira Gandhi that Narayanan joined politics and won three consecutive general elections to the Lok Sabha and served as a Minister of State in the Union Cabinet, under then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. Narayanan was elected as a Vice President in 1992 and went on to serve as the President in 1997. Narayanan won the Presidency Elections in 1997 with 95% votes in the electoral college. So far, this is the only presidential election which was held with a minority government in power at the centre. Narayanan has been described as a “working President” and not just a “rubber stamp” President. Narayanan was an independent and a confident President who widened the horizon of the highest constitutional office in the country. As a President, Narayanan used his powers to appoint a Prime Minister in a hung parliament, dismissed a ...
PDP protests force feeding of Maharashtra employee *** Delhi, July 23: Expressing outrage at the behavior of some Members of Parliament, who force-fed an employee of the Maharashtra Sadan, in New Delhi, against his wishes and religious belief, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday strongly protested against the Lok Sabha not given a chance to debate this serious issue of violating human dignity and personal liberties. The party president, who represents South Kashmir in the Lok Sabha, and her colleague in the House, Tariq Hameed Karra, raised the issue in the parliament and presented a copy of a newspaper to the speaker which carried the report of Shiv Sena MPs from Maharashtra forcing an employee to eat against his wishes. The matter evoked protests within the House and a demand was made for a full-fledged debate on this issue. But, after the speaker allowed only one member from the opposition to speak on this inglorious incident the entire opposition walked out along with the PDP parliamentarians. Me ...

Kolkata: Assailing the Narendra Modi government for hiking fuel prices and railway fares, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday said her party Trinamool Congress would carry on with its movement to combat such policies. "They said something before the elections and have done things diametrically opposite after the polls. Within a month of coming to power, they have hiked prices of fuel and railway fares," Banerjee said. "We will continue our democratic movements and fight against these things," the Trinamool supremo said at a party rally here. Accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party of trying to "foment riots" in West Bengal, she warned that there was no place for divisive politics in her state. "They are trying to indulge in communal politics in the state. We will not let this happen. There is no room for communalism on the soil of Bengal," she said. Wondering how the BJP could indulge in a massive campaign built on "lies" in the state by winning only one additional seat in the recent Lok Sabha p ...
Text of the Speech in Lok Sabha today on Demands for grant for MOEF. 22nd July, 2014 Hon’ble Speaker, Thank you for giving an opportunity to participate in this discussion on the grant of Ministry of Environment and Forest. Undoubtedly the environment has a significant role in the development of the human kind and same is the vise-versa. Considering, the issues like pollution raised at various levels the MOEF has an important role to play. However, through you I would like you draw the attention of the Government and more particularly the MOEF to the issues related to smaller but important state like Goa. With the total land mass of 3702 Sq. KM the tiny coastal state of Goa is left with hardly 362 Sq. KM for its development to be more precise of the total land mass 40% is agricultural land, 38% is forest, 6% under CRZ and around 2% is for roads and infrastructure. In this backdrop the notification issued by MOEF whereby measure part of the state has been sought to be identified as ecologically sensitiv ...

Narendra Modi gets HC notice in Varanasi poll case IndiaToday.in, July 18, 2014 Prime Minister Narendra Modi has received a setback, with the Allahabad High Court on Friday issuing a notice to him on a petition of Congress MLA Ajay Rai, who has challenged his election from the Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh. Justice VK Shukla, while passing the order on the election petition of Rai, who had contested as the party's candidate from Varanasi, fixed September 5 as the next date of hearing in the matter. Rai has alleged in his affidavit that Modi had left blank columns relating to his wife Jashodaben's PAN card details and her income, which violated Supreme Court's directions. Rai has also alleged that though the Election Commission had laid down that a candidate in a Lok Sabha poll must not spend more than Rs 70 lakh during electioneering, crores of rupees were spent during Modi's campaign. He has also alleged that T-shirts and caps bearing Modi's name and image were distributed among the pe ...

Women Safety in India-a big Question? The December 16 gang rape of the young paramedic in the moving bus by six men led to widespread anguish and protest across India. As a result, slew of measures were taken by the Delhi Police and Government of India. Among these was setting up of help lines and women help desks at police stations, Parliament enacting the anti-rape law, and et al. The big question arises after one full year of 16 December, has there been any meaningful change in the attitude of society towards woman? Has there been change in the environment with respect to women safety in Delhi? If we look at the statistics provided by the Delhi Police and National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB), we find that all talks of women safety and thereof any meaningful change in the society’s attitude towards women is just a mirage. A Year since the death of the young paramedic Nirbhaya, there has been a 125% jump in the number of rape cases in Delhi. Molestation cases are up a massive 417%. Till November 2013, t ...
Why India mustn't take any stand on the Gaza Strife .
Gaza Crisis: PDP says BJP turned Gandhi’s India into spectator SRINAGAR — Continuing with the campaign for the victims of Israeli aggression in Gaza, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti, Friday said the soul of India was being killed by the silence and inaction of BJP government over the atrocities committed on Palestinians.Mehbooba rose up at the start of the proceedings in the Lok Sabha Friday and reiterated that the government must use its influence to stop the aggression on Gaza which has, so far, cost 250 innocent lives with a ground invasion by Israel threatening more destruction.Mehbooba said it was sad that the BJP government in spite of having an overwhelming majority had turned Gandhi’s India, which always took principled stand on Palestine, into a mute, helpless spectator.“Of what use is your brute majority if you feel shaky even by the mention of Gaza in this House and about the atrocities on children, women and aged,” Mehbooba said while pointing to the trea ...
Indian External affairs ministry clears its stand on Israel-Palestine Relations, Govt is Not Ready to discuss issue in Parliament In the Rajya Sabha today, the Opposition parties stalled the proceedings over the procedural wrangle whether to take up or not a short duration discussion on violence in the Gaza and West Bank area of Palestine. Earlier, the house witnessed three adjournments on the issue. The opposition continued to insist on taking up the discussion, saying it was listed in the business of the day. But the government wanted to wait till the Rajya Sabha Chairman takes a decision on its letter that sought no discussion on a sensitive matter in the house as India is friendly to both Israel and the Palestinians. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that both Israel and Palestine are friendly countries to India and such a debate was neither acceptable as per the rules nor desirable. She said the matter should not be discussed to avoid any negative impact on the relations. She also said her ...
During the last 67 years since the Partition of our country,the Congress and the Communists never ever spared a thought for the continued genocide and ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Jammu & Kashmir in their own country; they never demanded a discussion in the Parliament on the systematic state pogrom of wiping off helpless Hindus - their own blood brethren left behind - right in our own backyard in the neighbouring Pakistan and Bangla Desh since 1947,but see it fit to destroy our valuable national institution and our invaluable national time in the Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha by continuously logjamming the Indian Parliament by demanding a discussion on the far-off Israel-Hamas conflict!So much for their concern for issues Indian!
This was in response to a question asked in Lok Sabha. So one has to be explicit.

New Delhi: Tax proceedings have begun against Swiss bank account holders, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told the Lok Sabha Friday. Responding to a query from BJP member Anurag Thakur during a discussion on the union budget, Jaitley said: 'Tax proceedings have begun...'. He said that 'SIT (Special Investigating Team) is going into it' and details are being given to it. Jaitley said there was a media report of a separate list, but when we wrote to the Swiss authorities, they said there was 'no separate list'. He said the 'present government has nothing to hide' and the issue of black money has been taken up 'with some element of intensity'. The minister added that the government is 'in process of communicating with the Swiss authorities'.

Congress rebels' ultimatum to Sonia on Gogoi ouster GUWAHATI: The Congress high command is exploring the option of anointing senior party MLA and Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi's loyalist, Anjan Dutta, as his successor even as the party's dissident group of MLAs and ministers on Thursday issued an ultimatum to Sonia Gandhi to replace Gogoi by Saturday. The dissidents said they would seek an alternative if the party high command fails to respond by then. A source said Gogoi himself has proposed Dutta's name to the party high command as his possible successor in case the party high command chose to replace him or he decides to relinquish the post. "Dutta has been called to New Delhi on Friday he will meet AICC general secretary and in-charge of Assam CP Joshi and later AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi. His name is certainly doing the rounds as Gogoi's replacement," the source said. A group of Congress MLAs and four ministers had been demanding Gogoi's ouster for the last two years and the pressure intensified a ...

Cong fails in opposing role The Congress Party was mauled in the Lok Sabha Elections because it lacked a credible leadership and was rudderless. One would have expected that it would learn some lessons from its abject failure and emerge chastened in the aftermath of the results as an opposition party of substance. Had it endeavoured to knit the opposition together and put up a strong front in the early days of the 16th Lok Sabha, it would have redeemed itself and looked capable of turning the tables on the NDA in the foreseeable future. But a month-and-a-half down the line after the crushing defeat, it looks as vulnerable as it ever did. What symbolises and reaffirms the failure of its leadership is the manner in which it opposed the ordinance and then the Bill to remove legal hurdles in the appointment of former Telecom Regulatory Authority of India chief Nripendra Misra as Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister. Moving the Bill, Minister for Law and Telecom Ravi Shankar Prasad said the focus of the m ...
E-WASTE Govt offering financial help for e-waste management "Also setting up integrated recycling facility for e-waste" To facilitate e-waste management in the country, the government is implementing a scheme under which financial assistance is provided for awareness and capacity building activities relating to e-waste management. Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar told Lok Sabha that under the 'Creation of Management Structure for Hazardous Substances' scheme, government is also setting up integrated recycling facility for e-waste. "In addition, guidelines for implementation of e-waste rules 2011 have been formulated," he said. Javadekar said monitoring of compliance of authorisation and registration conditions fall under the purview of state polution control boards but no large scale violation of the e-waste management and handling rules by industrial units and public enterprises has been reported to the Ministry. The Minister said toxic constituents such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polyb ...
BJP to form govt in Delhi, Jagdish Mukhi front-runner for CM's post? BJP party is looking to form gov in Delhi. BJP MLAs held a meeting at party's Delhi office today morning amid reports that independents and the lone JD(U) MLA may be willing to support the govt. BJP is open to the idea of forming the gov but they remained tight-lipped on possibilities being explored to get adequate numbers to stake claim. Party had won 31 seats in the Delhi Assembly polls of December last year but its number has come down to 28 in the 70-member house after three of its MLAs -- Harsh Vardhan, Ramesh Bidhuri and Pervesh Verma -- were elected to Lok Sabha in the recent general elections. The party has the support of the lone Shiromani Akali Dal MLA. Newly appointed Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay on forming the government in Delhi said that the party is ready to take the plunge, nearly six months after refusing citing lack of majority. Meanwhile, reports are also doing the rounds that the BJP is considering its Janakpu ...
