Survey of India to re-measure Mt Everest s height HYDERABAD, Jan 24: The height of Mount Everest will soon be re-measured by the Survey of India to determine whether the world s tallest peak has really shrunk following a devastating earthquake in Nepal two years ago. An expedition from the Survey of India would depart for Nepal in two months to conduct the exercise that comes in the backdrop of doubts expressed by section NEW DELHI, Jan 24: A top JNU official who was leading the inquiry into missing student Najeeb Ahmad s case besides other disciplinary issues on campus, has resigned from the post allegedly over some differences with the administration. While Chief Proctor AP Dimri confirmed his resignation, he refused to share any details about the reasons behind it. This is the second time that of the scientific community about the shrinking of the towering mountain peak. Mount Everest officially stands at 8,848 metres (29,028 feet) above sea level. The project, for which required sanctions have been obtained, would help the future scientific studies as well, Surveyor General of India Swarna Subba Rao said here today. We are sending an expedition to Mount Everest. Everest s height was declared, if I remember correctly, in Many others also measured it. But the height given by Survey of India, even today, is taken as the correct height. It is 29,028 ft, he said. We are re-measuring it. It is almost two years since the major Nepal earthquake.

Being societies, the prestigious IIMs are presently not authorised to award degrees and have been awarding Post Graduate Diploma and Fellow Programme in Management.

Dimri had taken over as Chief Proctor, when his predecessor had resigned citing personal reasons following the controversy on campus in February last year over an event during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised. University officials, also confirmed his resignation but refused to comment further, saying his letter doesn t mention any reason. According to sources, Dimri had differences with the administration over handling of a few disciplinary issues on campus, including the recent altercation between two groups following which Najeeb went missing. He was leading an inquiry into the case. Then the disruption of the Academic Council meeting happened where nine students were suspended. The administration also banned any sort of protests or demonstration near its building. Dimri had certain differences with the authorities over handling of these issues, a source close to Dimri said. The Proctor s office is responsible for handling all the disciplinary issues on campus, including ordering of inquiry, probing the issues and recommending punishment for the students.

Sd/- (Ashok Kumar Barman) Janasanyog/1498/16 LONDON, Jan 24: Massive networks of fake Twitter accounts with the largest consisting of over 350,000 profiles have been accidentally uncovered by scientists who were probing to see how people use the microblogging site. Some of the accounts have been used to fake a number of followers, send spam and boost interest in trending topics, researchers said. On Twitter, bots are accounts that are run remotely by a person. It is difficult to assess exactly how many Twitter users are bots, said graduate student Juan Echeverria, a computer scientist at University College, London, who uncovered the massive networks. The research began by combing through a sample of one per cent of Twitter users in order to get a better understanding of how people use the social network. However, the data revealed lots of linked accounts, suggesting one person or group is running the botnet. These accounts did not act like the bots other researchers had found but were clearly not being run by humans. The research suggests earlier work to find bots has missed these types of networks.

UNI Syria peace talks close to final declaration ASTANA, Jan 24: The UN envoy for Syria said today that a final declaration was close to being achieved at the indirect talks between Syrian rebels and their war-torn country s regime in Kazakhstan s capital Astana. The talks, which yielded no apparent breakthrough yesterday, could have been the first face-to-face negotiations between the regime and the armed opposition since Syria s conflict erupted in 2011, but the rebels backed out. We are not far from a final declaration, UN envoy Staffan de Mistura said. There are very intense discussions because this is not about a paper, this is about a cessation of hostilities which means Syrian lives. Rebel spokesman Yehya al-aridi said the rebels would not sign a final declaration coming out of the talks, saying it would be issued by their sponsors, rebel PRESS NOTICE INVITING TENDER Executive Engineer, PWD, Kohora Road Division, Dolamara on behalf of Governor of Assam invite bids for Maintenance & Repair of roads for the works under Assam Road Maintenance Fund for the financial year for 6(six) nos. of packages for one month duration of Karbi Anglong District, Assam, amounting to Rs Lakhs (Approx.).

He added the final declaration was a general statement that is not meant to be signed by the parties. The rebels rejected face-to-face talks because of the regime s continued bombardment and attacks on a flashpoint outside the capital Damascus. The two sides sat at the same table for the opening statements, but spent the rest of yesterday negotiating via mediators. The rebels have insisted the talks focus on bolstering a frail truce brokered by Turkey and Russia last month, while the regime has called for a political solution to the nearly six-year conflict and for rebels to lay down their arms in exchange for an amnesty deal. Rebel spokesman Osama Abu Zeid said ceasefire violations and threats of forced displacements were hindering the negotiations, and that the rebels would focus on the truce in today s talks. In addition to having different objectives, the two sides also disagree about the role of the talks three organisers, Russia, Turkey and Iran. A member of the rebel delegation told AFP yesterday that the group would agree to have Russia serve as a guarantor of the current ceasefire but not Iran, another backer of President Bashar al-assad. The Syrian regime, meanwhile, has said it would refuse to hold governmentlevel talks with Turkey and sign any document bearing the signature of a Turkish official suggesting this would include any deal to come out of the talks. More than 310,000 people have been killed and more than half of the country s population displaced since Syria s conflict erupted in 2011 with protests against Assad s rule. AFP China to firmly defend sovereignty over South China Sea BEIJING, Jan 24: As the Trump administration fired its first salvo to counter China s island building in disputed South China Sea, a perturbed Beijing hit back saying it will firmly safeguard its indisputable sovereignty irrespective of what America says. China s position on the South China Sea (SCS) is clear and consistent. There is no change in our position. China has indisputable sovereignty over SCS islands and adjacent waters, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said. Her comments came hours after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer issued a stern warning to China, saying the US would protect its interests in the SCS and defend international INTERNATIONAL territories from being taken over by one country. This is the first direct comment by the Trump administration after the tough-talking billionaire took over as President on Friday, signalling an assertive policy on the SCS contrary to a cautious policy pursued by the Obama administration. China s action in SCS is legitimate, lawful and reasonable. Whatever other countries want to do or say, China s determination to safeguard our maritime interests, sovereign rights and interests is firm, Hua retorted. We are also committed to work with other parties to address the issues through peaceful negotiations. The situation is turning better. Agreement has been made to follow the dual track approach to address the SCS issue, she said, referring to China s efforts to pacify the Philippines and Vietnam to lower the conflict. Besides the two countries, Preliminary... (Contd from page 3) within two months. The Chief Minister, in his speech, asked the Field Engineers to conduct the historic survey with utmost dedication, devotion and honesty. It is gathered that the comprehensive findings of the preliminary surveys will be helpful in preparing detailed modalities for the ambitious projects dredging of the Brahmaputra, construction of the Express Highways along both banks of the river and for taking up other development projects like navigating big vessels for communication and trade and commerce. Brahmaputra was declared as the National Water Way 2 but due to its poor navigability, the benefits have not been reaped by the State. The Brahmaputra has 640 km length in Assam from Sadia to Dhubri. Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal also simultaneously dedicated the 8.3 km portion of the Dibrugarh Town Protection Dyke during the function. The section, extending from Maijan to Mohannaghat with solar lights along the dyke and with black topped road, was constructed with an estimated cost of Rs 80 crores. The dyke was constructed under the Assam Integrated Flood and Riverbank Erosion Risk Management Project with funding from the Asian Development Bank. Flood and River Bank Erosion Risk Management Agency of Assam (FREMAA) implemented the project. The dyke has been raised to some six metres height from ground level, and has a top width of six metres. Rakesh Paul... (Contd from page 3) made the payment annually as Paul also owns a house at Tura in Garo Hills of Meghalaya. The money was paid to these outfits regularly through various links, sources said. This has nothing to do with the APSC scam or the ongoing investigation and the police have stumbled upon such information while investigating an altogether different case. Further, the matter of terror funding will need specialised investigation, sources pointed out. Paul, who is now in judicial custody in connection with the cash-for-job scam in the APSC, had paid nearly Rs 1 crore to each of the outfits in the last few years. The Assam Tribune had earlier reported that Paul during questioning had admitted to making payment to political leaders, including former ministers, a media baron and journalists among others during his tenure at the top post. Gen Rawat... (Contd from page 3) security situation in the Corps, both from external threat and internal security point of view. General Rawat has himself commanded a Corps in the Eastern Command and is well acquainted with the nuances of operational scenario here. He was satisfied with the operational preparedness of Gajraj Corps and encouraged all ranks of the Corps to keep up the high state of alertness and professionalism displayed by them. General Rawat left Tezpur for Imphal before moving to Delhi, said a Defence press release. Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also contest China s claims over almost all of SCS. The US is not a party to the SCS issue. We urge the US to honour its commitments, fully respect the efforts of the regional countries and safeguard peace and stability in the SCS, she said. But at the same time, unlike in the past, Hua did not oppose US naval ships and bombers passing through if it is under international law. PTI Chargesheet... (Contd from page 3) Procedure. The Court of Special Judge has fixed February 27 for submission of the status report, he added. Sources said that there is still ample scope for further investigation regarding the arrested accused persons and those who are absconding. Meanwhile, to facilitate trial for the accused holding constitutional posts (APSC), including Rakesh Paul and the two other arrested members, the investigators have already written to the President of India for prosecution sanction against them. Meanwhile, the investigators have received prosecution sanction against Naba Kumar Patir from the State Government. R-Day... (Contd from page 3) said an official press release here this evening.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2017 Lowest approval for Trump s first days in modern era: poll WASHINGTON, Jan 24: Donald Trump has begun his first days in the White House with the lowest approval rating any US President received in the modern era, according to a new poll. The first measurement of Trump s job approval rating showed Americans divided over his performance in his three days in the Oval Office, the Politico reported. Trump s approval rating in the Gallup survey, conducted between Friday and Sunday, opens at 45 per cent the same percentage of Americans that said they disapprove of Trump s first weekend on the job. In fact, the billionaire real estate tycoon began his Presidency with the lowest initial approval rating in the modern polling era, according to Gallup. But while Trump s first approval rating is improved from the poor reviews Americans gave to his Presidential transition, it is also lower than previous Presidents a sign Trump has entered the White House without the same support from Americans that others have enjoyed.

The democratic platform provides us flexibility in our thought process. However, it does not mean that whatever we consider to be right is always right for society. Hence, there is a need to develop a positive sense for maintaining basic discipline on the part of every citizen of Guwahati as a whole, specially towards creating a systematic, smooth and seamless traffic management system. Over and above the existing traffic rules and regulations as well as other technological means implemented by the authority, it is imperative for all citizens to exercise their democratic rights in a most sensible way, while driving or parking their vehicles without creating problems for fellow citizens.

BRENDA NATHAN Upcoming State Budget The second State Budget of the BJP-led Assam Government is scheduled to be presented by its Finance Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, in State Assembly on February 7, 2017 for the fiscal year The Finance Minister had held his pre-budget discussion with different stakeholders recently on January 12, 2017 at the Assam Administrative Staff College, Guwahati where other ministers and important officials of various departments were also present. It appears from the discussion of the Finance Minister that the State Budget with effect from , following the Central pattern of budgetary structure, will initiate a departure with respect to expenditure pattern from the earlier trend of showing the same as between Plan and non-plan heads besides the distinction between capital and revenue expenditures. This is certainly an important rationalization and simplification effort, initiated in the budgetary structural complicacy. However, in place of State Plan expenditure head, the Government will frame what is called State s own priority development (SOPD) expenditure head. This is certainly more meaningful since all types of development expenditure are not of equal importance and urgency and a choice pattern is needed in the face of financial limitations. Most of the pre-budget discussion centred round the utilization aspect of Plan expenditure during the current year. Thus, the review unveils that Plan expenditure in the fiscal up to December, 31 stood at Rs 9,348 crore, the achievement being only 23% though the expenditure head is designed to be 42% more than the previous year. It is good to note that the State Finance Minister has hinted at 20% increase in allocation to various departments in the upcoming Budget. It is important to note here that Himanta Biswa Sarma s maiden budget for was comprehensively all-embracing and could be rather called a five-year rolling action Plan, based on the ruling party s vision document expecting to transform the State into a land of prosperity and development. The upcoming Budget is expected to give large focus on education, agriculture, rural development and health care areas. A 20% rise in expenditure on them will mean a budgetary allocation of more than Rs 9,300 crore on these thrust areas. What will help rural development programme most is the promise of the Finance Minister to spend Rs 1.2 crore in each of the State s villages on account of its uplift under what is called the Chief Minister s Samagra Gramya Unnayan Yojana which has already been in operation. Some progress has already been done in the area of eradication of corrupt practices in the State and much more is expected in the days to come. Going cashless Even as the Centre makes a bold push for a cashless economy less-cash economy would be a more realistic term given the constraints that a developing country would invariably encounter in such an exercise the foremost need is to increase banking penetration across the length and breadth of the country. Talking about cashless economy without putting in place a matching infrastructure in the form of banks, ATMs, etc., would be akin to putting the cart before the horse. Banking services in many areas such as the North-east continue to be inadequate, and this lower banking access has kept diverse financial services out of bound for a vast segment of the populace. For a vast populace in the North-east, savings is still primarily through informal mechanisms like keeping cash at home, in kind, i.e., livestock and jewellery, and traditional savings and loan clubs organized in villages by temples or churches. This is largely attributable to the inaccessibility of banks for a majority of the people. While the geographical remoteness and the difficult terrain is primarily responsible for the low banking penetration, disinclination among a considerable segment towards availing banking services something that has a lot to do with poor awareness is also a matter of worry. The need, therefore, is to expand banking facilities and at the same time carry out a sustained campaign on the benefits of banking, including cashless transactions. According to a recent estimate, the North-east accounts for as many as 89 of the 131 un-banked blocks of the country. The RBI has come up with a specific scheme to ease the problem, and the State governments should reciprocate the gesture by doing the needful on their part. Another peril which one needs to be on the guard against during the transition to digital literacy is the online financial frauds. The situation post demonetization warrants all the stakeholders including the Government, the service providers and the general users to join their hands to streamline digital delivery. Since the sudden initiative to step into a cashless economy has caught the masses unawares, it is quite likely that we will witness a spurt in digital financial frauds unless the associated hazards in a digital economy are addressed urgently. A multi-pronged approach beginning with dissemination of information concerning safe digital operations is an urgent need. A vast number of those who have now been compelled to take recourse to cashless transactions are illiterate, let alone being techsavvy. Cyber criminals are bound to use the situation to their advantage and dupe the gullible users. The Government, the banks and all the digital service providers have a big responsibility in educating the masses in digital transaction. Then, even as we prepare ourselves to tackle the looming danger of digital fraud, the Government also has to put in place adequate digital infrastructure in terms of ATMs, point of sale (POS) terminals, etc. Dredging the Brahmaputra R Pranabendra Barman ivers have worked as a boon that help in the growth of human civilization over the ages. All great civilizations have started around and along the river valley and the Brahmaputra is no exception. The world s third longest river with a span of 2,900 km, of which for 916 km it flows through India, has been nourishing North-east India from its inception. But slowly, it has become a reason for sorrow because every year, its fiery floods make lakhs of people homeless, huge loss of property and lives. The Brahmaputra is fed by large tributaries like Jaidhal, Subansari, Siang, Kameng (Jia Bharali), Dhansiri (north), Puthimari, Pagladia, Manas, Champamati, Saralbhanga and Aie from the north and Noa Dihing, Buridihing, Debang, Dikhow, Dhansiri, etc. (south). In addition, six tributaries namely the Tista, Sankosh, Raidak-I, Raidak-II, Torsa and the Jaldhaka flowing through the northern West Bengal also join the mainstream of the Brahmaputra. The North bank tributaries are flashy and have steep slopes, shallow braided channels and coarse sandy beds, carry a heavy silt charge. The South bank tributaries have flatter grades, deep meandering channels, fine alluvial soils and comparatively low silt charge. Now, the question that arises is what may be the possible cause for a river in which a civilization started slowly turns to be the sorrow of Assam like the Huang Ho of China. Whoever controls the Yellow River, controls China, said the Letters to the EDITOR Great Yu, who is credited with the first taming of the river around 2200 BC. The Brahmaputra can never be tamed but has to be controlled or given a proper direction as the average annual flow (water discharge) throughout Assam vary from 8,500 to 17,000 cubic metres per second making it a big challenge to dredge it throughout the year. The Brahmaputra carries an exceedingly large flow, huge volume of sediment load, continuous changes in channel morphology, rapid bed aggradations and bank line recession and erosion. The river has braided channel in most of its course in the alluvial plains of Assam. The unique geoenvironmental setting of the region, the highly potent monsoon, weak geological formation, active seismicity, accelerated erosion, rapid channel aggradations, massive deforestation, intense land use pressure and high population growth especially in the floodplain belt, and ad hoc type temporary flood control measures are some of the dominant factors that cause and/or intensify floods in the valley. Now, the next question is whether the flood problem can be dealt with by removing the silt deposit on its bed. Whether dredging the river would give some relief to the flood-prone areas and user economic development of the region? Dredging alone is not a sustainable solution for future flood management. So instead of dredging only, we should develop a flood management project which will include dredging, reclamation of lost area due to erosion, building permanent concrete embankments, planting trees on the riverbank and building roads on both the banks of the Brahmaputra. Dredging is a low-impact, environmentally-friendly method of removing excess sediment build-up from bodies of water. Things cannot change overnight, but they must change eventually. A gradual, responsive, phased approach that recognizes the need to compromise flood defence and biodiversity priorities may be our only option if we are to undo decades of river mismanagement. Dredging will play an important role in flood risk management in some cases, but is not a standalone solution. It should be considered in the context of a range of tools and the origins of different sources of floodwater and comes with significant risks that must be understood at a Trump s unipolar world local and catchment scale. Dredging covers a range of activities from the removal of material from the bed and sides of river channels through to the wholesale straightening (canalization) and/or deepening of watercourses. Works can be undertaken to drain land for agriculture, to improve flood protection and/or for navigational purposes. What will we do with the dredged soil? If the dredged soil can be used in reclamation of the land on both sides of the river, the same land can be used for setting up economic industrial corridors of the State. The areas lost to erosion can be revived and used for resettlement of homeless people due to flood. The dredged soil can be reclaimed and new areas can be developed to get economic benefits such as developing industries or new localities to ease out population boom. Dredging allows for the removal of polluted debris from the floor of the rivers, so that it does not affect the wild habitat in these areas. Dredging will be act as a catalyst for economic development along the river and in the adjacent neighbourhoods. Dredging focuses more on reducing the impacts of a flood rather than preventing one. Since the Brahmaputra is a braided river, dredging will somehow straighten the flow of the channel. This water then will move through the river faster preventing it from pooling thereby reducing the risk of a flood and will be faster to navigate too. Dredging of a river will increase the cross-sectional area (and hence Perspective 2050: Are we prepared? Dr Dilip Kr Patgiri Climate change as well as other environmental issues has posed a great challenge to agriculture with rapidly increasing food demand due to a growing and increasingly affluent global population. This must be met in ways that are sustainable to the population demand which also meet the concerns of agricultural scientists. Solutions must address the economic and social challenges such as income to farmers in an equitable manner and more acutely, hunger and malnutrition, especially in underdeveloped countries. This can be achieved with a comprehensive solution to the complexities before us. A comprehensive response requires evolution across the entire food system how food is produced, processed, stored, distributed, accessed and consumed. The heads of states and governments and the representative of the European Community during the World Food Summit held at Rome in 1996 stated, among others, that we agree to undertake all necessary actions required at national, regional and global levels and by all states and governments to halt immediately the increase in and to significantly reduce the number of people suffering from hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity. We will reinforce all our Sir, This refers to your editorial Isolationist stance (AT, Jan 22). The position that the 45th US President Donald Trump holds today is a controversial one. Controversy belongs to the brave one. Cleansing America by making her great once again through the establishment of a unipolar world is not bad for the interest of America. If the new President wants to free the white American workers from the threat of economic globalization, what is wrong? If he wants to secure America for the Americans restricting illegal immigrants, what is wrong? Same may be the case with any country. To work for and develop the world, each country needs to develop itself first. This development should be internal; then only the inclusive development may take place. If India has been maintaining a neutral position globally by signing a non-aligned efforts to meet by 2015 the targets of Millennium Development Goal 1 and the World Food Summits. We commit to take action towards sustainably eradicating hunger at the earliest possible date. But 2015 is already over. Have we achieved what we had declared? If not, are we prepared for a 2050 perspective? In this summit, food security was defined based on three main considerations availability, access and use of food. It is often observed that even if a country has an aggregate sufficiency of food, its population may suffer from a serious nutritional insecurity due to unequitable income distribution. With this consideration in mind, the UN Standing Committee on Nutrition (SCN) in 2013 stated that food and nutrition security exist when all people at all times have physical, social and economic access to food, which is consumed in sufficient quantity and quality to meet their dietary needs and food preferences, and is supported by an environment of adequate sanitation, health services and care, allowing for a healthy and active life. How do we handle the issue while taking care of the changing climate and other environmental concerns? The world has already witnessed a peak in food price during the 1970s. However, with vigorous efforts by pact, it is only at the interest of her becoming a developing nation today. Yours etc., RAJA DAS, Gauhati University. Jallikattu Sir, Kudos to your editorial, Regressive step (AT, Jan 23). It is a pity that we unite when our macho pride gets hurt but we do not care when inhumanity causes a real blow to our pride. We cannot stop rape, ragging, teasing, lynching and bullying so long as violence is allowed to be enjoyed in the name of tradition, culture or necessity for becoming fit enough to survive. However, in the journey of evolution, humans happened only after minerals, plants and animals. And human beings are slowly realizing that they are to do better than the animals not by fighting like them or with them but by throwing the very survival of the fittest theory to a jungle. Compassion and cooperation can only take humanity forward. This is the reason why many countries have graduated themselves from police states to Instead of only dredging, we should develop a flood management project which will include dredging, reclamation of lost area due to erosion, building permanent concrete embankments, planting trees on the riverbank and building roads on both the banks of the Brahmaputra. welfare states. This is the reason why Helen Keller and Stephen Hawking are shining bright in our Who s Who. If we support jallikattu for the sake of tradition and culture, then, how can we support Malala? Unfortunately, our stand in favour of jallikattu on the ground of blind tradition will dump us on Talibans who regard culture as a static thing. Yours etc., SUJIT DE, Sodepur, Kolkata. Sakira Ahibo... Sir, The new Assamese movie Sakira Ahibo Bokultolor Bihuloi has created quite a sensation on social media, wherein the movie has become very popular. The name of the film itself is attractive. The film intends to represents the real picture of today s Assamese society. The film shows how our young generation is utilizing our culture to earn easy money for their enjoyment. In this process, they are degrading the essence, value and ethics of the Assamese culture. The film is not only the world community, we could handle this successfully which resulted in a falling food price in real terms. The global food economy during the next three decades saw a decline in food prices. Steady progress was made in reducing the proportion of the world s population classified as undernourished from nearly 30% in 1970 to slightly over 12% in 2015, although the world population more than doubled to reach 7.3 billion during this period itself. The progress notwithstanding, 795 million people were identified as chronically food insufficient in In addition 162 million children were stunted, and over 2 billion people were identified as suffering from one or more micronutrient deficiencies. The 21st century has brought in a number of spectacular changes in world economy, more specifically in food economy. Severe climate related events, facilitating subsidies for the promotion of bio-fuels as alternative to traditional mineral fuels and the impact of the 1995 World Trade Organization agreement changed the dynamics of global food supply. Furthermore, growing demand for food was being driven by a steadily increasing world population, and in emerging economies, such as China, India, Brazil, etc., a desire for higher protein diets was driving increased meat and dairy demand. India has seen a dramatic change in food habits during this period. These factors came together in the period, led to a rapid increase in price of food commodities. This food price crisis pushed an estimated 100 million people into hunger, led to food riots in over 30 countries worldwide. This food price crisis compelled the political establishments throughout the world to include food and nutrition security in their political agenda. At the end of 2015, several events linked to climate change due to the El Nino phenomenon further triggered the food crises. Severe droughts affected several countries in the Horn of Africa, southern Africa, eastern and southern Asia, Central America and the Caribbean. India also witnessed severe drought situation during this period. These events combined with conflict and political unrest in Syria, the Middleeast and parts of Africa have contributed to the significant flow of refugees to Europe since Against this backdrop of food and under-nutrition crisis, a growing number of people are suffering from over-nutrition: currently more than 2 billion people are overweight or obese. Moreover, under-nutrition and obesity increasingly coexist in the same households what is termed the double burden. The biggest casualty of this scenario is the agriculture sector. Arising from these developments there is an increasing recognition that the agricultural sector is both a contrib- entertaining but also sends a wonderful message to the society that how we can solve our problems by ourselves in unity. Director Himangshu Prasad Das and his team deserves kudos for this film. Yours etc., TAPAS MALI, Tezpur. Difficult situation Sir, The recent transfer of the lone cardiologist from the Silchar Medical College and Hospital has pushed the entire populace of the Barak Valley into a difficult situation. Through your esteemed daily, I would like to request the State Health Minister to do the needful and provide the people suffering from different heart diseases some assistance. Yours etc., PINAKI CHAKRAVARTY, Ghungoor, Silchar. Entrance test Sir, We know that the State Eligibility Test (SLET/SET) 2017 was postponed to February 26 from February 5, And we are really very thankful for this prompt and thoughtful act of the its volume), as well as the streamlining of the channel. Where dredging is used to straighten and canalize a river, the effect is to reduce its length and increase channel gradient. These effects can increase the efficiency of the channel in moving water (increasing the conveyance). Dredging should therefore lead to a reduction in water levels and hence to a reduction in flood frequency. The cost of dredging is very high because it requires a sophisticate and heavy equipment called dredger. Moreover, these dredgers are not manufactured in India; neither there is any Indian company which has its fleets of dredgers to work in this project. The Dredging Corporation of India has only three Cutter Suction Dredgers (CSD), which are not sufficient to take up the project. There are two options left either the Government of Assam purchases some CSDs as per the output required per day and have its own fleet of dredgers. Having the Government s own fleet will reduce the cost of the project. The other option is giving the contract to any dredging company of international repute to work on the same. The cost of the project will increase by approx 30% in the second case. The reclaimed dredged soil will give back at least 30% of the investment. Dredging is not new to Assam as the British used to dredge the river to transport tea and oil from Assam. The Assam Government had sold the dredgers terming them as old and obsolete but the same dredgers had been purchased by the Gujarat Government and had used to develop both the Bhavanagar and Kandla ports. Assam needs professional people on board to make such a project successful. utor to and vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. On a long-term forecast, it is projected that the world population will grow to 9.6 billion by 2050 mostly confined to developing and underdeveloped countries of the world. With the changed world economic order, in line with trends in recent decades, it is anticipated that a new middle-class with growing wealth and purchasing power will emerge and they will increase their per capita food consumption, particularly for processed food, meat, dairy and fish. This increasing demand will present market opportunities for countries like India with the potential to produce high quality, safe and sustainable food. The only concern is that a significant increase in population will take place in the poor countries that currently experience relatively low agricultural yields and low per capita availability of food, with only a small percentage of caloric intake from animal products. The food security for these countries can most effectively be enhanced by assisting them in increasing their own food production. With the kind of technical knowhow in soil health, availability of improved seed and plant protection, increasing availability of power and water in agriculture sector, India can play a significant role. But the big question is: Are we prepared to take the complexities of the challenge head on? SLET Commission. But, unfortunately, one more entrance exam called JEST (Joint Entrance Screening Test) to be held on February 19 has also been postponed to February 26 which collides with the SLET.

7 CITY No harmful radiations from mobile towers: Telecom Secy WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2017 THE ASSAM TRIBUNE, GUWAHATI 7 GUWAHATI, Jan 24: Stressing the importance of digital empowerment, JS Deepak, Secretary, Department of Telecommunications, Government of India today stated that apart from adequate digital infrastructure it is also necessary to remove the myths and misconceptions that are ruling the mind of a section of citizens. Addressing an awareness programme in the city on EMF emissions and telecom towers, Deepak asserted that contrary to the myth that mobile towers emit harmful radiations, the World Health Organization has concluded that current evidence does not confirm existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields. Mentioning that more mobile towers need to be set up to realise the dream of digital India, Deepak said that there is no need to fear emissions from mobile towers as the government has a set of stringent safety norms and stricter enforcement rules. Telecommunications is a key source of e m p o w e r - ment of citizens at large and an effective tool for s o c i o - e c o - nomic development of a nation. It has emerged as one of the core infrastructures required for rapid growth and modernisation of various sectors of the economy. The delivery of broadband services to those who are at the bottom of the pyramid in India can be done through mobile technology 2-day academia meet begins JALUKBARI, Jan 24: The Department of Communication and Journalism, GU, in collaboration with UNICEF is organising North East Communication Forum, a two-day regional consultation of academia, professionals and government on their experiences on social and behavioural change through communication in different developmental schemes in Assam and North East. The session, which began today, is aimed at creating a common platform for discussions and experience sharing on developmental issues that are carried forward by different departments including academic institutions, government bodies, civil societies, media and other sectors. The consultation was inaugurated by GU Vice Chancellor Dr Mridul Hazarika, who spoke on the need to create a common ground where all sectors can share their knowledge and their work area. Senior journalist Samudra Gupta Kashyap said, We should not work in isolation but use communication as a tool to share experiences and expertise to maximize developmental process in the region. Altogether 30 representatives from different universities of the North East, government bodies, NGOs and media signed the terms of reference promising to keep in touch periodically and exchange ideas and work experiences. The session was attended by Prof HP Sharma, Rector, GU; Rajat Barman Mahanta, former State government official; Radha Saini, fellow UICC; Dr Ranjan Kakati, Director of Students Welfare, GU; DK Saikia, Director, NIPCCD; Sikha Barthakur, State BCC expert and other prominent academicians, medical practitioners and media experts from the region. NE Graduate Congress GUWAHATI, Jan 24: At a time when they are at a crucial stage of their academic life, around ten thousand upcoming graduates will get to know the tricks for preparing for their future course of action and will also get a much needed exposure into various fields through the North East Graduate Congress 2017, to be held from February 17 to 19 on the periphery of Guwahati. Organised by ERD Foundation, the fourth edition of the fest would bring graduation students of the entire North East together, giving them a platform for various activities, sports, symposia, career counselling, entrepreneurship development programme, cultural exhibition and workshops etc. Around 200 colleges are likely to take part in the event to be held in the University of Science and Technology, Meghalaya (USTM) campus. Apprising the media of the activities of the event, Dr Alaka Sarma, Dean, students welfare, USTM stated that the aspiring graduates, a majority coming from the interior areas of the region would find a platform through the Graduate Congress to express themselves, hone their skills and identify the opportunities lying ahead. only, said Deepak, adding that there are more than 100 crore mobile subscriptions in the country. S p e a k i n g about the safety norms set by the government, Deepak said that they are ten times more stringent than the existing limits prescribed by the International Commission on Non Ionizing Radiation Protection and recommended by WHO. If any BTS site is found to violate the prescribed EMF norms, action is taken to put a penalty of Rs 10 lakh per BTS per incidence including closure of BTS if violation persists, he said. State Chief Secretary VK Pipersenia in his address observed that mobile connectivity is not satisfactory in the North East. He said that telecommunication services are the backbone of economic development and steps should be initiated for strengthening mobile connectivity. It needs to be mentioned that the session was held as part of a nationwide awareness programme.

8 8 THE ASSAM TRIBUNE, GUWAHATI WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2017 STATE Govt urged to provincialise venture schools urgently DOOMDOOMA, Jan 24: The Dibrugarh and Tinsukia district committees of All Assam Recognised ME School Teachers Association ( ) organised a huge public meeting at the Forest Guard Training School at Makum on January 22. The meeting was attended by retired teachers, eminent writers, representatives of different students bodies and literary organisations. The meeting discussed the issue of provincialisation of venture schools in the State. Though the previous State Government provincialised a section of schools by enacting a law in the State Assembly, but the Gauhati High Court in a significant judgement subsequently declared this law null and void. The Gauhati High Court verdict has obviously led to a state of uncertainty among the concerned teachers as their future prospect has become bleak. Those working in the concerned venture schools of the State are therefore passing days in a state of great anxiety. Homage paid to Manipuri leader GUWAHATI, Jan 24: The Manipuri National Council (MNC) headquartered in the city condoled the death and paid homage to their 52-yearold departed leader Naorem Babu Singh, who left for his heavenly abode on January 14 at a Silchar-based nursing home, a press release received here stated. The MNC resolved to follow the footsteps of their departed leader and to complete his unfinished tasks for a united and prosperous Manipuri nation.the MNC was hopeful that Naorem Babu Singh s ideology and spirit of sacrifice will always inspire its members forever. Besides being the president of MNC, Naorem Babu was actively associated with various socio-cultural organisations of Assam. An active founder member of United Manipuri Association, Assam, he was also a member of Manipuri Sahitya Panshad, Assam, Kamrup district committee, besides being the founder secretary of Kanglei Salai Sintha Lup, Guwahati, and an RSS member. He is survived by two daughters and a son, besides relatives and well-wishers. Motorcycle stolen DOOMDOOMA, Jan 24: A Hero Honda Splendor Plus motorcycle bearing registration No. AS-23-D-3560 and owned by Abhoy Khataniar, former president of Daimukhia Gaon Panchayat, who is a resident of Rupbon under Doomdooma Police Station was stolen from Doomdooma town on Sunday. An FIR was lodged at Doomdooma Police Station in this connection. The meeting was jointly chaired by Pradip Kumar Moran and Jyotish Saikia, presidents of Tinsukia and Dibrugarh district committees of the association respectively. The speakers who addressed the meeting urged the State Government to provincialise all the venture schools of the State soon by enacting a new law immediately. They also urged Education Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma not to do politics on this vital issue which concerns the future of thousands of minors, besides bread and butter of several thousand teachers. The meeting passed a number of resolutions and urged the State Government to provincialise all the venture schools by enacting a new law during the next session of the Assam Legislative Assembly, to grant an ex-gratia of Rs 5,00,000/ - each to those teachers who retired after serving in such venture schools of the State. The meeting also urged the Government to sanction similar ex-gratia to the families of those teachers who died during their service period. Further, the meeting also decided to send separate memorandums to the Governor, Chief Minister and to the Education Minister of the State on this important matter. UBI staff shortage: The customers of United Bank of India (UBI) here have been suffering a lot due to shortage of staff. According to information available, at present the bank branch has over 45,000 customers. But in order to attend to such a large customers base, the branch has only five allotted staff, including the branch manager. Though the branch manager has reportedly informed the higher authority of the bank about the problems faced by the customers due to shortage of staff in the branch, but the higher ups are yet to take any effective measure to solve the problem. Moreover, following the recent decision of the Union Government to pay wages of the tea garden labourers through their respective bank accounts, the labourers have opened their bank accounts in this branch too. Consequently, the number of customers in the bank branch has witnessed a phenomenal increase since the last few weeks. With only five staff at his disposal, the branch manager has obviously been finding it uphill to attend to the ever-increasing rush of customers. The condition of the bank staff becomes all the more worse when any one of them avails leave, following which the existing staff are overburdened with additional responsibilities, while the customers suffer for no fault of theirs. On the other hand, the passbook update process in the branch has been totally stopped since the last four months due to shortage of staff. A few customers of the bank lamented before this Correspondent that bank staff often misbehave with the customers. They also alleged that the limited space of the present bank branch is insufficient to accommodate over a hundred customers at a time. The customers therefore appealed to the higher bank authority to take prompt measures to solve these nagging problems at the earliest possible.

Booking No. Ph , Now Online Booking available on GUWAHATI, Jan 24: The militant camps in Myanmar remain a major cause of worry for the security scenario in the North East region and so far, the Government has not been able to ensure that the India-Myanmar border is properly guarded to prevent free movement of the ultras. Meanwhile, the involvement of Manipurbased militant outfits in incidents of violence in Assam is a new trend, which a cause of major concern for the security forces. Security sources told The Assam Tribune that though the Assam Rifles has been entrusted with the responsibility of guarding the international border with Myanmar, the movement of the ultras from their bases in the neighbouring country has not been stopped, while, despite assurances, the Government of that country is yet to take firm steps to evict the camps of the ultras. The terrain along the international border areas is also helping the militants, while, on its part, the Government of India has not been able to create proper infrastructure like border roads, camps of the border guarding force etc along the international border, which also affected the performance of the force. On the other hand, strong presence of Naga people on both sides of the international border, particularly the strong bases of the NSCN (K) is also a matter of concern. Though the Government decided to raise physical barriers on some parts of the international border, the move faced strong resistance of the people living along the border because they were of the view that such a move would affect the age old traditional trade and relations between India and Myanmar. Taking advantage of the porous international border, the militants can very easily sneak into India from their bases in the neighbouring country to indulge in acts of violence in the North East. Of late, the militants are preferring the Arunachal-Myanmar border, particularly through the Changlang district, where the NSCN(K) has strong presence. Meanwhile, security sources admitted that the involvement of CorCom, an umbrella organization of seven militant outfits of Manipur, in incidents of violence in Assam is a matter of serious concern. In the past, militants belonging to the NSCN (K) were involved in acts of violence inside Assam, but Manipur based outfits rarely came into the picture. However, the involvement of CorCom in the recent attack on Assam Rifles in Jagoon in Tinsukia district has been confirmed. Sources said that it is yet to be ascertained what prompted Manipur bases outfits to involve in violence in Assam. The main question now is whether the Manipur based outfits joined hands with the ULFA(I) for a joint operation for the convenience of both or they were ordered by someone else to do so, sources pointed out. Preparation on to celebrate Krishak Swahid Divas as State function MANGALDAI, Jan 24: The BJP-led State government is going to celebrate the Krishak Swahid Divas commemorating the historic Pathorughat peasants uprising as an official government function with a two-day-long programme on January 27 and 28 next. This is the first time that the State government has taken up the entire responsibility of observing the central event of its own unlike the previous years when it was celebrated by the local people with some assistance from the local administration. Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal will grace the open session of the celebration scheduled from 11 am on January 28 as the chief guest. The decision of the State government has brought about high hopes among the people here for taking the historic peasant uprising of Pathorughat in January 28, 1894 into the national level. Meanwhile the district administration has made elaborate arrangements for the successful and smooth conduct of the function, for which several sub committees have been formed under the supervision of senior officials of the administration. In a joint meeting of the publicity sub committees with representatives of different local media organisations on Saturday, Pallavi Sarma Choudhury, convener of the Sub Committee as well as Assistant Commissioner in presence of Samar Kalita, District Information and Public Relation Officer sought all sorts of cooperation from the media for wide publicity of the proposed event.

Moreover, it is significant to note here that during his tenure as the president of All Assam Students Union (AASU), the Sonowal-led AASU centrally celebrated the centenary celebration of the Krishak Swahid Divas with a three-daylong programme. Sipajhar legislator Binanda Saikia during his tenure as the vice president of AASU also played a key role in organising the centenary celebration. On the other hand, Pathoru Xamannay Gosthi, a leading socio-cultural organisation of the Patharighat area has demanded a national-level seminar in New Delhi to bring to the notice of the nation this ignored but glorious chapter of the freedom struggle. In a petition to the Chief Minister, Dibakar Barua and Mostak Hussain, president and secretary of the organisation respectively have also demanded other charter of demands, including setting up of a tomb in the nation s capital National Girl Child Day observed GUWAHATI, Jan 24: Along with other parts of Assam, the National Girl Child Day was also observed at Udalguri Girls High School by the District Child Protection unit in association with the UNICEF.

Social media addiction could be influenced by your genes, say researchers Media addiction: your genes to blame Thought for the day With people of only moderate ability modesty is mere honesty; but with those who possess great talent it is hypocrisy. SCHOPENHAUER Are you anxious that your kid is hooked to social networking sites or busy playing video games through out the night? You now have another reason to blame for the growing addiction: Genes. According to researchers from King s College London, online media use such as social networking, instant messaging and playing games for entertainment and education could be strongly influenced by our genes. Genetic factors was found to influence time spent on all types of media including entertainment (37 per cent) and educational (34 per cent) media, online gaming (39 per cent) and social networking (24 per cent). The study found that people are not passively exposed to media; instead they tailor their online media use based on their own unique genetic predispositions a concept known as gene-environment correlation. The DNA differences substantially influence how individuals interact with the media and puts the consumer in the driver s seat for selecting and modifying their media exposure according to their needs, said lead author Ziada Ayorech from King s College London. Our findings contradict popular media effects theories, which typically view the media as an external entity that has some effect either good or bad on helpless consumers, Ayorech added. In addition, unique environmental factors such as one sibling having a personal mobile phone and the other not, or parents monitoring use of social networks more heavily for one sibling compared to the other, accounted for nearly two-thirds of the differences between people in online media use. For the study published in the journal PLOS ONE, the team analysed online media use in more than 8, year-old twins. The researchers compared identical twins who share 100 per cent of their genes and non-identical twins who share 50 per cent of their genes.

14 14 THE ASSAM TRIBUNE, GUWAHATI WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2017 Pak test-fires N-capable Ababeel missile ISLAMABAD, Jan 24: Pakistan today successfully conducted the first test flight of the Ababeel surface-to- surface ballistic missile (SSM) capable of carrying a nuclear warhead up to 2,200 km. Ababeel has a maximum range of 2,200 kilometres and is capable of delivering multiple warheads using Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement. The test flight was aimed at validating various design and technical parameters of the weapon system, it said. Ababeel is capable of carrying nuclear warheads and has the capability to engage multiple targets with high precision, defeating hostile radars, the ISPR said. The development of the Ababeel weapon system was aimed at ensuring survivability of Pakistan s ballistic missiles in the growing regional Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) environment, the release said, in an obvious reference to India. INTERNATIONAL The Ababeel test came on the heels of a successful test of submarinelaunched cruise missile, Babur-III, on December 9. The successful attainment of a second strike capability by Pakistan represents a major scientific milestone; it is manifestation of the strategy of measured response to nuclear strategies and postures being adopted in Pakistan s neighbourhood, the military had said after the Babur-III test. The missile, launched from an undisclosed location in the Indian Ocean from an underwater, mobile platform, had hit its target with precise accuracy, the Army had said. Babur-III is a sea-based variant of ground-launched cruise missile Babur- II, which was successfully tested in December last year. PTI Chinese officials attend India s R-Day reception BEIJING, Jan 24: Senior Chinese officials, Beijing-based diplomatic corps, defence attaches and foreign media professionals today attended a reception hosted by the Indian Embassy here ahead of the 68th Republic Day. China s Assistant Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou was the chief guest at the reception. Addressing the gathering, Indian Ambassador to China Vijay Gokhale said 2016 was an important year in India-China relations as a number of bilateral visits took place. From the Indian side, last year was marked by the visits of the President, the ministers of Defence and Finance, the National Security Adviser, while China s Secretary of Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, State Councillor, Foreign Minister and Chairman of National Development and Reforms Commission visited India, he said. On the state of relations between the two countries, Gokhale quoted Prime Minister Narendra Modi s comments made in New Delhi on January 17 in which he said, I see the development of India and China as unprecedented opportunity for our two countries and the whole world. At the same time, it is not unnatural for two large neighbouring powers to have some differences. In the management of our relationship and for peace and progress in the region, both our countries need to show sensitivity and respect for each other s core concerns and interests, Modi said. PTI Android pattern lock can be cracked LONDON, Jan 24: The popular pattern lock system used to secure millions of Android smartphones can be cracked within just five attempts and more complicated patterns are the easiest to crack, security experts have warned. Pattern lock is a security measure that protects devices, such as mobile phones or tablets, and which is preferred by many to PIN codes or text passwords. It is used by around 40 per cent of Android device owners, researchers said. In order to access a device s functions and content, users must first draw a pattern on an on-screen grid of dots. If this matches the pattern set by the owner, then the device can be used. However, users only have five attempts to get the pattern right before the device becomes locked. New research from Lancaster University, University of Bath in the UK and the Northwest University in China, shows for the first time that attackers Around the WORLD Italy avalanche toll rises to 14 FARINDOLA, Jan 24: The death toll from an avalanche in central Italy climbed to 14 today as hopes began to fade that any of the 15 people still missing might be found alive under a mountain resort buried by tons of snow and rubble. Firefighters located half a dozen bodies within a few hours today, doubling the death toll six days after the disaster. AP China official jailed BEIJING, Jan 24: China s state-run energy giant Sinopec s former chief was today sentenced to 15-and-a-half years in prison and fined nearly USD 470,000 for accepting bribes and illegally possessing assets. Wang Tianpu, former general manager of oil giant China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec Group), was handed down the sentence by the Nanchang City Intermediate People s Court in east China s Jiangxi Province. PTI Contempt notice to Imran Khan ISLAMABAD, Jan 24: The Election Commission of Pakistan has issued a contempt notice to cricketer-turnedpolitician Imran Khan after he allegedly accused the top election body of bias in a case of foreign funding. PTI can crack pattern lock reliably within five attempts by using video and computer vision algorithm software. By covertly videoing the owner drawing their pattern lock shape to unlock their device, while enjoying a coffee in a busy cafe for example, the attacker, who is pretending to play with their phone, can then use software to quickly track the owner s fingertip movements relative to the position of the device. Within seconds the algorithm produces a small number of candidate patterns to access the Android phone or tablet. The attack works even without the video footage being able to see any of the on-screen content, and regardless of the size of the screen, researchers said. Results are accurate on video recorded on a mobile phone from up to twoand-a-half metres away and so attacks are more covert than shoulder-surfing. It also works reliably with footage recorded on a digital SLR camera at distances up to nine metres away, they said. Researchers evaluated the attack using 120 unique patterns collected from independent users. They were able to crack more than 95 per cent of patterns within five attempts. Complex patterns, which use more lines between dots, were easier to crack because they help the fingertip algorithm to narrow down the possible options. PTI Legal jolt to May s Brexit plans LONDON, Jan 24: In a huge setback to British Prime Minister Theresa May s Brexit plans, the government today lost a landmark legal challenge after the Supreme Court ruled that she cannot unilaterally trigger the process of Britain s exit from the European Union and must seek the Parliament s approval. The judgement means the British Prime Minister cannot trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to officially begin Brexit negotiations with the 28- member EU until Britain s MPs and peers give their backing. It has now been confirmed that a new Bill will be Janasanyog/8644/16 tabled in the Parliament within days for this purpose. The government had argued that it already had the executive powers to trigger Article 50, but Supreme Court judges rejected the case by a majority of eight to three. Reading out the ruling, Supreme Court president Lord Neuberger said: By a majority of eight to three, the Supreme Court today rules that the Government cannot trigger Article 50 without an Act of Parliament authorising it to do so. The official judgement in the case concludes: The change in the law required to implement the referendum s outcome must be made in the only way permitted by the UK Constitution, namely by legislation. In a joint judgement of the majority, the Supreme Court holds that an Act of Parliament is required to authorise ministers to give notice of the decision of the UK to withdraw from the European Union. The government had lost a High Court case brought by anti- Brexit campaigners last November, leading to the landmark appeal in the Supreme Court heard by all 11 justices of Britain s highest court.

Williams, 36, won 6-4, 7-6 (7/3) to reach the last four without dropping a set and move towards a possible ninth Grand Slam final against her sister Serena, 16 years after their first. Why shouldn t I? said the seven-time Grand Slam-winner, who is thriving again after a battle with an autoimmune disorder, when asked if she could win her first major title since I try to believe. Should I look across the net and believe the person across the net deserves it more? This mentality is not how champions are made. I d like to be a champion, in particular this year. The mentality I walk on court with is, I deserve this. Next up for Williams is her hard-hitting, aggressive fellow American Coco Vandeweghe, who stunned French Open champion Garbine Muguruza to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal. The tall, powerful Vandeweghe smashed 31 winners past the Spaniard and raced through the second set in just 28 minutes to complete a lopsided 6-4, 6-0 upset win. It s amazing to be in a semifinal. But, you know, not satisfying. I want to keep going, keep playing, said the 35thranked Vandeweghe, 25. There s more things to do out on a tennis court that I m hoping to achieve. Muguruza admitted she had been taken by surprise by Vandeweghe, despite her ear- Saha, Pujara guide Rest to Irani crown the issue. One Indian is now certain to feature in the semifinals and if Leander Paes manages to win his quarterfinal with partner Martina Hingis, the semifinal will again feature two Indians. Paes and Hingis are up against local favourites Samantha Stosur and Sam Groth. Meanwhile, in the juniors events, Siddhant Banthia reached the boys doubles quarterfinal with Turkish partner Kaya Gore with a 6-3, 7-6(6) win over sixth seeds Zizou Bergs and Yshai Oliel. However, Mihika Yadav went down fighting in girls singles second round with a 2-6, 1-6 defeat against 10th seeded Japanese Mai Hontama. PTI Goan clubs that pulled out didn t have bandwidth NEW DELHI, Jan 24: The All India Football Federation (AIFF) president Praful Patel today took a veiled dig at Goan clubs for not having the required bandwidth to continue in revamped top tier league as they are not investing in football while providing excuses. All the three Goan club owners Shivanand Salgaocar, Shrinivas Dempo and Peter Vaz (Sporting Clube de Goa) had taken Patel an united stand to oppose the proposed restructuring that makes ISL a top-tier league and relegates I-League to the second division. The clubs which have pulled out were not investing in football. They blame other reasons but the real reason is that they don t have band- width now to continue, the AIFF president did not take names but it was clear to everyone about the clubs he was referring to. India s club football system was thrown into turmoil last year when former champions Salgaocar and fellow Goan side Sporting Clube de Goa withdrew from the current edition of the I- League opposing AIFF and IMG- Reliance s proposed structure for the new domestic season as the reason. Late last year, another Goan club Dempo also pulled out of the national league. Praful said that I-League is still country s premier national league and it remains AIFF s top priority. PTI in style. The duo s fifth wicket unbroken partnership was worth 316 runs in 78.5 overs. It was the second-best in the tournament s history after the highest of 327 for the fourth wicket between Ravi Shastri and Praveen Amre for Mumbai against the Rest at Bengaluru in Both the batsmen were largely untroubled by the newly crowned Ranji Trophy champions bowling attack even though the target set by Gujarat, who had taken a handy 132-run first innings lead, was stiff. The winning hit by Pujara, a stepout lofted shot to long-on for his 16th hit to the fence off Hardik Patel, summarised the domination he had on the Gujarat bowling along with Saha. The The victorious Rest of India team pose with the Irani Trophy, on Tuesday. Rajkot-born batsman stayed at the wicket for just over 400 minutes and faced 238 balls to remain unbeaten.
