2 his is the film of the week Traunchy but not crude, unapologetic but not unreasonable, shameless but not shameful, audacious but not embarrassing. The centre point of all this intense paradox is the stunning, captivating and entirely enervating Swara Bhaskar as bombshell Anarkali, Anar to her fans. It is entirely Swara s film in which she finally gets a role deserving of her powerhouse of histrionic excellence. Playing a rustic singing superstar in the town of Arrah, she gives the film energy, pace, emotion and the right dose of unfailing raunchiness without which the film would have fallen flat, something that the keen eye of debutant director Avinash Das has written and unfolded as a seasoned man behind the camera. Other than the fact that Swara helms the film, it is delightful that other characters around her are equally excellent in their skin, more so the ever-brilliant Sanjay Mishra. He encapsulates Bihar and its gundagardi as it has been down the ages. As the Chief Minister s pala hua gunda who gets the reward of becoming the Vice-Chancellor of Arrah University, and is brazen with his sexual exploits and hidden aggression, cloaked in humour when at ease and wanton violence when poked, Mishra is stellar. So is Pankaj Tripathi as Anar s bhadva and bed partner with a wife on the side. The film which has double-meaning songs that merge with the ambience of the locale in which the story unfolds, is actually a capsule of real life and times of girls in the profession of song and dance who are treated as everyone s property, especially of men in power who can demand anything and everything from them, be it in bed or on the stage where molestation gets catcalls instead of horror. Anar faces this when she is pawed and molested on stage with the entire town watching. She protests, slaps and has to go on the run pretty much signifying the death of the rights of a citizen in Bihar. Her anger, her helplessness, her longing to sing again, her boldness are all paraded with a realness that is captivating. The playback singers, mainly Lehenga jhanke by Indu Sonali and Donali ma jung by Swati Sharma, are catchy. The film is a crackling tale from which there is no escape, including the ultimate challenge that she throws at her tormentors. It s a story we all know about but it s a film that makes you live through it. Kudos to the entire cast and crew. A must watch. I t is a beautiful film with a lot of heart. It is hilarious when required and moving when in the flashback. It saddles two worlds one 98-yearsold when it was beneath good family girls to even consider writing poetry, and the other where the widowed granny, and the rest of the family, is a whiskey-guzzling song and dance family. As producer, Anushka has literally done a ghost of a job. No really. The sets of pre-independence India are keenly stitched up, the shades are just right for a sleepy Punjabi village and the love story is crackling chemistry between an earthy Diljit Dosanjh and a deceptively docile Anushka Sharma. But the film opens 98 years after both are dead and gone, almost. We see Anushka as a glitteringly beautiful ghost in gold and tissue, floating around confused in a Canada-returned rapper Punjabi munda s bedroom. The interactions between her and the munda, aka Kanan, are funny but too short which leaves you wanting for more. Herein lies the movie s first faultline. There is humour but not enough. The situation that Anushka stitches up had so much potential for gentle laughter but somehow the director limits it rather ridiculously. What he concentrates on is the romance of yore between Anushka and Diljit. He does justice here. The story is both taut and meaningful and the ambience of conservative Punjab is captured with a lot of realism. The songs are heart-moving and the story weighs enough to keep you on your seat. The back and forth is also a good idea but the present which is meant to be light is not good enough despite a clueless Kanan and his bimbo-ish but pristinely beautiful fiancée Pirzada. Laughter is needed here much more than the laughter that happens. On the whole though, Anushka is lovely, Dosanjh is real and happening but the film is somewhere between beauty and moment, a little here, little there event which just about reaches your heart. his slow starter seems to have lost the race Tin the beginning but moves can be deceptive and this one is extremely so. After the first half-hour, the film an extra terrestrial horror show with an unexpected end picks up like rocket fuel on the burn and keeps you on the edge through the rest of the one-and-a-half-hour movie. After the biologist on board a space ship on a mission in Mars, taps a hibernated life cell on the Red planet and shocks it into life in a lab experiment, the deadly turn of events start never to look back. Though the confines of the space ship can be claustrophobic for a two-hour drama mainly focussing on sealing the escape pipes and tunnels of the ship apparently to save the earth from the catastrophic lab alien, the drama around this octopus-like shape is enough to catch you unawares and make you wonder if at all space missions should looking for life outside Earth. As the alien, named Calvin, gets more and more aggressive and unrelenting, not to mention fatal, and is kind of protected by the scientist who made it as someone who does not hate you but has to kill you for survival the audience gets into the room with the hapless crew which goes into the calorie count of the alien till a plan seems to work. As claimed, the film is a thriller indeed, a differently-enabled one at that. A taut, pacey and engrossing saga after it tides over its teething problem. Any difficulties playing a princess? There were no inhibitions because I always wanted to play a character which is larger than life. I wanted to play a goddess in a mythological show but when I got the opportunity to work in a historical drama to play mother to Maharana Ranjit Singh, I took it up. Who did you discuss your role with? My mother. I was contemplating whether I should do a mythological or a historical show. My mother advised me to play Rani Raj Kaur. Whatever I get out of this show, the credit will go to her. Your look is completely different In my previous show Ek Veer Ki Ardaas Veera, I wore no make-up. I used to only apply the Vicco turmeric cream. But in this show, everything has done up. It takes two-and-a-half hours only to get into the costume. But I love wearing the traditional attire and jewellery which has so much meaning. I did six test trials which were not even finalised till the day we started the shoots as we were experimenting with the look. Sometimes, your expectation for things is so high that you don t feel satisfied till the last moment. What s been most difficult till now? Getting into the attire is not as difficult as carrying it the whole day on the sets, especially in the growing heat and humidity. Dialect didn t come easy either but I was aware that I would have to speak royal Punjabi language. So I have to go through my scripts carefully. Since we have been shooting for the past three months, we have adapted to the set-up now. Since it is a true historical tale, we don t want to take any liberties with anything. Even an expression would have a big impact on the show. We don t want to hurt the sentiments of anybody. How was it working with the producer Abhimanyu Singh? He is the king of historical drama. Since they have done so many historical dramas now, it is very easy for them and they know what they want and how they are going to get it. When I stepped into the shoes of Rani Raj Kaur, it took some time for me to settle down in that new set-up and new character. But everything has gone off well so far. How is the bonding with the star cast? It s amazing. I have always maintained a professional relationship with everybody. Work is more important than anything else. With Tunisha and Damanpreet, I share a love-hate relationship. We have a lot of fun on the sets, call each other by funny names and don t leave any opportunity to pull each other s leg. How do you take time out for yourself? Usually, we don t have time outs. Whenever we get a holiday, I catch up on a lot of sleep. I just rest and eat. Shooting is a time-taking and tiring process. Emotionally, mentally and physically you get drained out. To recover and repair myself is something that I look forward to whenever I get opportunity. Do you see your shows on TV when you go back home? I don t like to watch myself on the small screen as I know how I am and how I have performed. Sometimes we start making fun of what we have done on the show. There are self-obsessed people who would see themselves on TV and praise themselves continuously. I am not one of them. Whenever my show comes, I change the channel and watch English GECs. If I am sitting with family or friends, I just move out. People, who know me, talk to me about my performance. But people from the industry don t try to joke around me or pull my leg as they think of me as a senior actor. Any Bollywood plans? I have done several Marathi films but those are like art films that travel across films festivals. If I think of Bollywood, I don t know if I fit into that genre. But if something really excites me, I will take it up. You have played mother on TV shows. Would you be open to play the same in movies as well? Never! This is not the age to play mother in films and be typecast forever. Films are for life. Hasn t Marathi cinema become quite popular? I m proud and privileged being a part of Marathi cinema. To see Marathi cinema grow is a beautiful feeling. I tell people that if they have something good for me, just let me know as I love those films and it allows me to get into the skin of the character. he temperature has peaked, Tso has the battle of the MTV Roadies Rising Season 15 warriors. The situation is do or die. The four mentors Neha Dhupia, Nikhil Chinapa, Rannvijay Singh and Prince Narula are all geared up with their teams to win the next task which is about balancing two bowls filled with water through zig-zag panels in the front and walking on a thin log kept over burning coal. Looks tough? Nah not for googly master Harbhajan Singh who surprises everyone with a twist. He not only decides to swap one member from each group but also, to make their comeback on the show, the teammates have to win this balancing task. The failed swapped member and the performer will bid adieu. The survival stakes are high and mentors in a tizzy as they have to pick the best from the lot. After a brainstorming team session, the task finally resumes around midnight on the barren farm land of the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar. To be the gang leader is no cakewalk. The mentors are equally a part of the task and making decisions doesn t come easy either. When a task is presented to us, gang leaders have to decide which contestant will take up the challenge and give suggestions about how to approach the task, what to focus on, where one might make mistakes. There is a certain thought process and logic that goes into it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn t. But that s okay, Chinapa says. As each team performs the balancing act, its mentors scream and shout to encourage the contestant to keep moving carefully. Not just the contestants, even the competition with the gang leaders is fierce. When it comes to the task, we are cool and collected but when our teammates perform, we scream and kick like nine-year-olds. This transformation is unbelievable. As gang leaders, we also spend a lot of time hanging out, chatting and playing games, Chinapa adds. Themed around bringing out the warrior instinct in roadies, the journey will travel across the destinations where the war took place in India like Jhasi, Gwalior, Alwar, etc. The crazy four mentors have given five contestants each who compete the task and get eliminated on the basis of their performance. Each gang has its own symbol that defines who they are. My gang symbolises the Sher. There is Saiyukta Hegde (18) from Bengaluru and has done a Kannada film which is the highest grosser ever in regional cinema. Despite the fact that everybody asked her not to join Roadies she pursued her dream and I like the fact that she is not doing it for fame and money. Aggy (27) from Goa had a disturbed childhood as he grew up watching domestic violence between his parents. He has stammering problem and is into fitness and aspires to be an actor. For him, being on the Roadies will make him gain confidence. Samar lived alone in Thailand and used to clean mats at a kickboxing school where he also got trained in the sport. He returned to India and started his kickboxing school in Guwahati. He has also represented India at international kickboxing championships. Shiv from Maharashtra used to live in a slum where he would have to walk half a km to access a toilet. He got into dancing and now teaches the children by charging 500 a month. After a lot of hard work, he and his sister have bought a house with an attached bathroom. Another contestant Virpal aspires to give back to her mother and aunt for bringing her up single-handed, Chinapa tells you. The logo of Neha Dhuipa s gang is a gladiator helmet, Prince Narula s team represents the Skull. Talking about his gang, Chinapa says: My gang is the wolf pack. One of the contestants is Rahul from Delhi who does several jobs, one being a DTC bus conductor. Khushnuma is an aspiring model and actress from Gujarat. Priyank from Mumbai is into performing arts and a dancer, model, actor and choreographer. Chiranjeevi comes from a village in Andhra Pradesh from where you would not expect a roadie to emerge. He is a priest and at times has performed his tasks wearing a lungi which he likes to be in. Prabhjyot is from Mansa district in Punjab. She left her home 10 years ago, studies and stays in a hostel and a TV reporter by profession. She has been making her ends meet all alone. She is a extremely strong, motivated and fiercely independent girl. All these contestants come from diverse background which makes for a good balance in the team, Chinapa says. Watch out for the Roadies Rising on MTV on every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm.

3 in a day or two, the State Jmust be busy in celebrating Special Olympics Bharat Team Floor Ball winning Gold Medal in Austria on Saturday in which a Jharkhand boy Abhiranjan Kumar played wonders for the team in finals. However, having no dedicated District Sports Officer (DSO) in any of the districts of the State since years tells a different story altogether about the government's seriousness for nurturing talents he Department of Botany Tof St. Xavier s College, Ranchi will organise threeday International Conference on Environment and Ecology (ICEE-2017) from March 27 to March 29 on campus premises.

Though the vacancies have been sent to the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) which is going to take another 6-8 months in final recruitment, a senior government official didn t hesitate to say on Saturday that the situation was not portraying good picture in many ways. It is true that we have managed to have at least one officer In-Charge as District Sports Officer (DSO) in every district after consultation with Deputy Commissioner (DC) in respective districts so that routine activities don t get hampered. But it is true that we don t have a single DSO solely appointed for this role since years. However, we have tried that athletes and sportsmen don t suffer in any district, said Sports Director Ranendra Kumar. He said that JPSC had he Food and Civil Supplies TDepartment has pressed the accelerator paddle for setting up State Food Commission. This has been done in the light of recent Supreme Court directive that has summoned drought-hit states, including Jharkhand for failing to comply with the Food Security Act (FSA) mandate. Caught napping, top brass of the Department has asked its subordinates to find whereabouts of the file that is still rolling since the Cabinet okayed the Commission to be formed along with the required guidelines about a year ago. I have sent a reminder to the Department s Principal Secretary to enquire where the file has stuck. Everything has been done in this regard. Applications have come, their scrutiny has taken place but the final selection and decision is pending, said Food and Civil Supplies Minister Saryu Roy. As per the National Food Security Act, 2013, every state government shall, by notification, constitute a State Food Commission for the purpose of monitoring and review of implementation of the Act. The Centre is also to provide one-time financial assistance to it for non building assets for the Commission to the states as well as to strengthen the PDS, capacity building, quality control, consultancies and research R anchi Municipal Corporation (RMC) is ready with a proposal to curb the mosquito menace in State Capital after the recent orders from Jharkhand High Court (HC) to make immediate proper arrangement and sort out the issue at the earliest where the mosquito menace is causing discomfort to the city residents. According to the Additional Municipal Commissioner (ACM), Bidyanand Pankaj, the civic body has submitted a detailed draft to the HC after the order was passed to draft a proposal to curtail mosquito menace in municipal area. Tenders for etc of the Department. The Act came into force in Jharkhand way back in September 2015, but it is yet to constitute the Food Commission at the top level. Similar are the cases with eight other states that prompted the Supreme Court to ask their Chief Secretaries to explain the delay in person before it. Along with this details in regard to Section 15 of the NFSA by which state governments have to frame rules for the appointment or designation of the District Grievance Redressal Officer have to be shared. The apex court also directed the Chief Secretaries to inform whether a social audit can be conducted, as provided under the FSA, or not. Joint Secretary of the Department Alok Trivedi while admitting to the apprehension coming from the Minister expressed hope that the Commission would be in place very soon. All the perquisites have been completed and final list of the applicants qualified for the posts of a Chairperson and five Members has been prepared. Now, the selection committee headed by the Chief Secretary would sit and decide the office bearers, said the official on Friday. Sources in the Department said that the onus now is on the Chief Secretary Office which has to clear the names for the panel and apprise the Supreme he city traffic police will Texecute a revised plan for the operation of battery operated rickshaws plying passengers along the selected routes in Capital City from April 1. Traffic SP, Sanjay Ranjan Singh has claimed that this time irrespective of any constrains following all prescribed norms sternly, traffic department will implement the new proposal. From April 1, new plan for traffic management will be implemented. Due to some change, the department had to reluctantly postpone the dates of implementation. The route plans have been revised back adding some new routes. Recently, few registered e-rickshaws were given stickers with the unique IDs, remaining e-rickshaw owners will get the IDs, added, the traffic SP. To ease down the traffic snarl along the major routes, recently the traffic police department along with the Ranchi Municipal Corporation (RMC) has restrained the number of green autos at specific roads. However, after the protest from various independent groups on issues like route allotments, colour codes, QR system including the number of the e-rickshaws on each selected routes, the department concerned have to again modify the plans for easy penetration of battery operated rickshaws and for driver s convenience. Notably, RMC, regional transport office (RTO) and the traffic police were all set to execute the traffic plan for e-rickshaws operation from March 2017 onwards. Nevertheless, the plan took a backseat amid machines, chemicals have been floated. Additional staffs will be deployed in slum areas to ensure cleanliness this time and to eradicate the larvae breeding at an early stage, he pointed out. RMC Health Officer, Dr. Kiran Kumari, said that they have only 11 auto-mounted fogging machines, which are not adequate to carry out fogging in every ward daily. However, RMC will soon purchase 20 auto-mounted fogging machines so that fogging is carried out on daily basis at a fixed interval, she added. Before April 10, approximately, 500 additional labourers will be deployed to carry sanitation task in all the 55 wards. A special drive will be protest. After the revival of route chart, approximately 11 new routes have been identified for approximately 1,200 e-rickshaws that will ferry commuters within municipal periphery increasing the total number of routes to Court in time. If we are asked, we would appear before the court and present our position and the steps that we have taken so far in this direction, said an official. The Department is also working on a software that would assist the Commission in a big way. The software would assimilate and verify the information coming from grassroot level about implementation of the FSA. It would be a grievance redressal mechanism on electronic platform for verification and debugging the complaints coming in, added the official. On the other, activists related to the FSA maintained that the non-existence of the Commission has hampered the implementation of the constitutional rights in many ways. Redressal of the complaints coming in are not being looked into, relating to addition and removal of names into the list of FSA beneficiaries. There is a provision of Rs 6000 compulsory maternity benefits to a pregnant woman which is not being implemented here. ICDS programme is in limbo.

Slums areas are being identified and cleanliness will be carried out there in a short while, Kumari said. Weekly roster plan is also being changed and now after 28 now. Around, seven old routes have been stripped off from the revised route chart plan. Earlier, 24 designated routes were allotted to the drivers.

Chief Justice PK Mohanty too admitted that he himself was a sufferer of this menace and wondered that a citizen has to approach the court on the issue and directly held the RMC officials responsible for all this problem. details about the driver including the penalty that has been charged from him in the past. At present, two squads have been appointed for conducting checking drives under one magistrate. The numbers will be increased soon. Dedicated teams will work only for a specific purpose to check the route passes given to the drivers.

Once the cabinet approved it around a year ago, the matter was sent to JPSC for fresh appointments, added Kumar. Government s seriousness to nurture athletes in schools of villages also comes under question, as the government itself hyped much about setting up Kamal Clubs in all the districts from July last year to identify and nurture talents from rural areas and promote sports.

On Friday it was Manokamana Bus which runs between Ranchi- Hazaribagh and on Saturday Pammi Bus and Maa Jaanki bus turned into ashes. It is noteworthy here that the private bus stand always remains busy and it is not an easy job for anybody to burn buses in broad day light.

5 f you go by the details of rail- ticket booked by Shiv Iway Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, who is in the thick of a controversy for assaulting a staffer of the Air india, the man is 99-years-old. After seven domestic airlines banned him from taking their flights, Gaikwad took a train to Mumbai on Friday. He however, deboarded the train enroute Vapi station to avoid media at Mumbai Central. Interestingly, while booking the ticket for AC 1 class, this 44-year-old MP from Osmanabad in Maharashtra registered him as a 99-year-old. This might have passed as an error of writing, but for the fact that the MP also showed his wife and companion were also one year less than hundred. Obviously, the Travel oncerned over the slow Cprogress of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAYurban), Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked States and Union Territories (UTs) to suggest a roadmap to meet the 2022 deadline. The total number of houses approved for the benefit of urban poor under PMAY (Urban), launched in June last year, has reached 15,48,846 entailing a total cost of 82,708 crore. A total number of 603,854 people have been sanctioned houses till date. Ticket Examiner of the August Kranti Rajdhani Express did not dare to question his age during the 16-hour journey between the Delhi and Mumbai. As per the Reservation Chart of Northern Railway, R Gaikwad, MP bearing PNR travelled in Coach A1, berth 21 as a male of 99 years. The MP s spouse and companion were also shown in the same age bracket of 99-years on the same PNR number. While top railway officials avoided any comments on this expose, one of them on condition of strict anonymity said that the MP has committed an offence by mentioning incorrect age particulars and simultaneously the TTE (travel ticket examiner) too committed a blunder by not verifying the passenger details as mandated by the railways journey for ticket examiners. Action should be taken against the MP and his cotravellers for faking age. The TTE should also be punished for not verifying y the details, said the official. Gaikwad took the fake age step to travel in a train on a day Parliamentarians from espite protest by employ- of Dr Ambedkar Dees Foundation (DAF), the controlling Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment (MOSJE) has gone ahead with the recruitment of staff for combined cadre of DAF and Babu Jagjivan Ram National Foundation (BJRNF). Last month DAF employees had appealed to the Secretary of Department of Social Justice and Empowerment (SJE) G Latha Krishna Rao to protect the Foundation from discriminatory actions by the vested officials in the Ministry. The staff alleged that the Ministry encroached upon the prescribed mandate of DAF which has been empowered by the Centre to recruit their own staff. They alleged that the recruitment notification is illegal which is flouting the Recruitment Rule (RR) regulations as it was never brought to the DAF governing body as mandated by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT). A representation was made by employees to the Ministry against the notification issued by Joint Secretary B L Meena of the Department of Social Justice and Empowerment. The MOSJE officials have however claimed that DoPT was duly consulted before the notification. In their memorandum, the employees had mentioned that Ministry made a mockery of recruitment process with blunders which includes a Group D post (MTS) notified as Group A post. Following a report in The Pioneer on January 23, 2017 about the violations by the Ministry, a cosmetic charge in the form of omission and addition of a couple of words was done through an order by Government of India Press. But that did not change the format of recruitment which flouts all norms and will not even stand in the rule of law, said a DoPT official. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has assigned priority to DAF still such things are happening. The said RR are going to serve no purpose in the BJRNF either, as there is no staff presently holding any post on regular basis, said a senior officer in charge of the BJRNF. Among the States, West Bengal has topped the list as it has provided houses to 165,360 beneficiaries under the scheme. West Bengal is followed by Gujarat, where 127,300 beneficiaries given the houses. Other States that have done fairly well include Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Manipur and Nagaland. Rajasthan, Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh have sanctioned 41,282, 10,555 and 33,470 houses respectively during the same period, while Goa has been able to identify and provide benefit to just five persons in the State. However, across the party lines condemned his unruly behaviour of beating with slippers an AI official last Thursday. While Air India has flied an FIR against him, the MP was banned by all the domestic airlines from flying thus forcing him to take Rajdhani train to Mumbai on Friday evening. AI took the bold step and cancelled Gaikwad s return ticket to Pune from New Delhi on Friday evening. The MP then booked himself on an IndiGo flight to Pune which too refused to take him onboard. Later, he was forced to undertake a train journey. The Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA) then issued a statement saying that the member airlines have decided to ban this MP from flying on all our flights with immediate effect. Delhi Police had registered two separate FIRs, one against Gaikwad for assaulting the AI staffer and transferred the case to its Crime Branch, and another against the AI staffer with Gaikwad being the complainant. Gaikwad has since said that he would not apologise for his action. he CBI on Saturday regis- a case against two for- Ttered mer AGMs, two ex-chief managers of Syndicate Bank s Jaipur and Udaipur branch, and six others for allegedly causing loss of nearly 209 crore to the bank. Searches were underway at the residences of the accused including in Jaipur and Ajmer, a senior CBI official said. The accused were identified as former Assistant General Managers -- A K Tiwari and AGM Adarsh Manchanda, Chief Managers - - Santosh Gupta and Deshraj Meena who worked at the bank s Udaipur and Jaipur branch, the official said. Udaipur-based Chartered Accountant Bharat Bomb, his builder brother-in-law Pavitra Kothari, Kothari s employees - Piyush Jain and Vineet Jain, and builders Shankar Lal Khandelwal and Anoop Bartaria were also booked for the alleged fraud. A complaint was lodged that the accused hatched a criminal conspiracy to avail home loans/credit facilities from the bank by submitting forged and fabricated documents. The funds then disbursed by the bank s two branches were diverted and fraudulently siphoned off to the companies owned by the accused, allegedly causing loss of approximately 209 crore to the bank, the official said. The case has been registered under sections 420 (cheating) 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy), 467, 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document) of the IPC and relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act, the official added It was alleged in the complaint that the said accused availed home loans and credit facilities from Jaipur and Udaipur branches of Syndicate Bank on the basis of forged and fabricated documents, CBI spokesperson RK Gaur said here. Searches are being conducted at four places including Jaipur, Ajmer at the residential and official premises of accused persons, he said. he verbal dual between the Truling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Opposition National Conference (NC) has intensified in Kashmir as the campaigning for the bypoll in two parliamentary constituencies progressed. On Saturday Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti addressed a series of gatherings in central Kashmir s Beerwah pocket while Farooq Abdullah who is joint candidate of NC and Congress from Srinagar Constituency addressed partymen in Budgam. While the NC castigates the ruling PDP for its alliance with the BJP, the ruling party is justifying the alliance for the development of the region. We assure everyone that we stand by our political, economic and developmental agenda, Mehbooba said while campaigning for her party candidate Nazir Ahmad Khan. In parallel campaign, Farooq Abdullah said the upcoming by-poll is not just the battle of ballot but fight for survival of secularism, which is at peril in the wake of communal and divisive forces taking centre stage in the state polity. States such as Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh have also not been able to perform much as far as urban housing is concerned. Earlier, the Urban Development and Housing Ministry had asked State Governments and UTs to submit proposals for construction of affordable houses at the earliest so that the Narendra Modi Government s Housing for All Scheme target in urban areas could be met by 2022 as envisaged. Top sources told The Pioneer that the Prime Minister he Congress is likely to Tlaunch a campaign against the Modi Government alleging a sharp decline in job growth figures in key sectors. The party termed this as the sideeffect of demonetistion and hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over saying his claims do not match with ground realities and the economy is contracting. Citing official figures, Rajya Sabha member Abhishek Singhvi said on Saturday that eight key sectors including the ith the Bareilly Police Wstill groping in the dark to identify the miscreants who unleashed panic in Jiyangla hamlet, fresh tension prevailed in neighboring Subashnagar area after more posters appeared on walls in the area threatening members of the minority community on use of loudspeakers at religious places. On March 15, some mischievous elements put up posters threatening members of has expressed annoyance over slow pace of work under PMAY programme. At a meeting with all secretaries of States and UTs, the Prime Minister has directed to prepare an action plan and send the roadmap of 2022 to his office. He asked them to hold weekly review meeting in this regard and adopt a mechanism to fasttrack sanction of houses and to ensure adequate budget in the background of the assessed demand in each State/UTs, said the sources. Aiming to provide housing to common people across the country, the Prime Minister transport, manufacturing, health, education, hotels and restaurants have seen a decline in the third quarter of this fiscal. From the figures, he said, it is clear that there is a vast difference between Prime Minister s claims and reality. The Congress has pointed out that women employment witnessed the sharpest decline in this quarter, as 25,000 jobs have been lost. Modi promises more jobs but in the third quarter of this financial year there is an increase of 69,000 jobs against an increase of 1.7 judicial order passed in an Aeviction suit by the Supreme Court last week created a history as the tenant was allowed time till October 2019, almost two-and-a-half years, to evict a rented premise owned by an NRI in Ludhiana. This is by far the longest time given by any court to a tenant to hand over possession. By ordering so, the Apex Court brought down the curtain on a 12-year-old dispute between a tenant Gurbachan Singh and his NRI landlord Ravinder Paul Mohindra, who owns the commercial building situated at a prime locality on Mata Rani Road in Ludhiana. On Wednesday, the matter pending in SC since 2007 was taken up by a Bench of Justices Kurian Joseph and R Banumathi. The lawyers appearing on both sides stuck to their positions with the tenant unwilling to hand over possession of the rented premise held by him since October 26, 1985 on a monthly rent of 1,250. The landlord claimed that he needed the premise for setting up office for business and claimed to have suffered huge losses since the property in question was worth several crores on which rent paid was pittance. The Bench asked both lawyers if they wish to end their dispute and seek an amicable settlement to the long-standing issue. With the landlord clear over getting back possession and the tenant seeking at least five years to vacate, the Bench asked advocate R Balasubramanium to mediate between the parties. After an hour of negotiations, Balasubramanium ironed out a solution by making the tenant agree for a lesser period to hand over possession and the owner to forgo claim on losses suffered due to under-payment of rent. The Bench gave time till October 2019 for the tenant to evict possession and asked him to furnish an undertaking to this effect in three weeks. Violation of the same would amount to contempt of Court, the bench said. a community to leave the village or be ready to face the consequences. Last time the poster was released in the name of Bharatiya Janta Party s MP but in fresh posters, the publishers name was printed as Entire Hindu Commmunity. The local police once again registered a case against unknown miscreants. They also quizzed some youths engaged in printing and running photostat centres. However, so far no breakthrough could be made. had launched the Housing for All initiative in June 2015 with a target to construct 2 crore houses by About 4,000 cities are covered under the scheme. In the first phase, the Government has planned to construct one crore houses by However, the scheme is moving at a slow pace because of lack of response by some States. Under PMAY (Urban), central assistance of 1 lakh to 2.30 lakh per each dwelling unit is provided to eligible beneficiaries under the four components of the scheme. A total of 1, crore was As per fresh reports, some posters were pasted or thrown at two mosques at Kargaina hamlet of Subashnagar which is located adjacent to Jiyangla in Bareilly on Saturday morning. Through the posters, the minority community was asked to stop playing loudspeakers on mosque tops or be ready to face the consequences as the majority community would not allow them to do so. Senior police officers rushed to the scene and later got the objectionable posters removed sanctioned during the financial year , and a total of 99.13% of the total budget was spent for the Prime Minister Awas Yojna (Urban) mission. As per data provided by the Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation (HUPA) Ministry, the construction of 2,21,373 houses has started. State-wise approvals include: Andhra Pradesh(1,94,884), Gujarat (1,20,782), West Bengal (1,22,915), Maharashtra (1,18,252), Karnataka (82,964), Telangana (81,920), Madhya Pradesh (67,893), Bihar (63,017), TN (61,711), Odisha (46,798) and Tripura (45,905). lakh jobs in the previous quarter, which is less by about onethird. This is, God forbid, showing a trend of contraction and let us hope that Mr Modi s jumlas and claims and the BJP s self congratulatory, selfpatting on the back succeeds, otherwise the Indian economy will be prejudiced and hurt irreversibly, Singhvi said. Figures show that the growth in third quarter was exactly half of the previous quarter, when only 32,000 new jobs were created against the 77,000 created in second quarter. Barring manufacturing and IT, other sectors have suffered a steep decline, and the four badly hit sectors are trade, construction, hotel and restaurant and education, registering an absolute decline of 18,000 jobs, Singhvi said. If you take total overall employment figures, it is even more distressing in the comparative previous quarter, addition of jobs is 1.69 lakh i.e. Almost 1.70 lakh which is way below, he pointed out. He said one gets clear glimpses that are indications to rmy Chief General Bipin ARawat on Saturday exhorted the Indian industry to manufacture weapon systems keeping in mind local conditions and said the Army wants to fight the next war with technology on our side. He also asked the industry to come up with robust, rugged, miniaturised yet technologically compatible solutions. Addressing a seminar on The User and The Provider organised by Corps of Signals, Army Design Bureau (ADB) and Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), Rawat also released the second volume of a compendium of problem statements prepared by ADB about issues related to weapon systems. The ADB came up with this document after detailed interaction with all stakeholders, including soldiers deployed in the field. The first volume, with 50 problem statements, was released in December last year and 28 new problem statements were added in the second volume which will enable industry and academia to understand the needs of the armed forces and evolve indigenous solutions incorporating the latest technology trends for India s military power. Rawat asked the industry to align the solutions to the said problems and sought efforts to bring in transparency in the battlefield to allow better decision making. Pointing out the drawbacks in trial equipment, he asked the industry and academia to focus on the fact that Indian Army will fight its A few days ago, residents of Jiyangla hamlet on the fringes of Bareilly district were shocked to find several posters with hate messages pasted on ewalls The posters said, The BJP is in power in UP. So Hindus will do the same what Donald Trump is doing with Muslims in America. The minority community was further threatened to leave the area by the end of this year or be ready to face the music. When the local pradhan noticed the mischief, he which way the wind is blowing, not only demonetisation but the general mismanagement of the economy. The Congress leader also said that the third quarter figure shows there is a clear increase in Current Account Deficit (CAD) despite all the claims of deficit management to USD 7.9 billion almost USD 8 billion against just over USD 7.1 billion. So that is almost a billion dollar increase and connected to that in marginal decrease in net FDI to USD 9.8 billion, down from previous figures, he said. wars in varied terrain and weather conditions and sought them to come up with robust, rugged, miniaturised yet technologically compatible solutions. In the backdrop of revolution in war fighting strategies and tactics, the Army Chief said in the present complex environment, technology is imbibed by the Armed Forces in a manner that will rapidly keep pace with the changing technologies. He stressed the need for the ability to identify the correct type of technology and equipment to be inducted into service. As the battlefield is now dependent on satellite and digital technology, Rawat emphasised that the Army has to keep abreast with the digitised world and ensure that most of its systems are digitised as early as possible. He also said that since war will be fought on the borders and therefore technology to be incorporated into Army s communication systems has to be rugged and light weight and stressed on Indian solutions to these issues. informed the police after which cops and senior officers including SP (rural) Yamuna Prasad reached the spot. The posters were later removed and a case was registered against unknown persons. But no arrests could be made till date. Local BJP leaders chose to dismiss the incident as a mischief to disturb communal harmony in the area and to defame the party. Security has been beefed up in the area to avert any exigency and investigations were on. n effort to end the Istand-off with the Opposition over farm loan waiver, the Maharashtra Government may revoke the suspension of 19 Congress and NCP MLAs, when the State Assembly meets after a long recess on March 29. Giving an indication to this effect, Maharashtra Legislative Affairs Minister Girish Bapat said in the State Assembly on Saturday: It is not the case that we will not revoke the suspension of the Opposition MLAs. We also would like the House to function in a cordial atmosphere. Our approach towards revoking the suspension of the Opposition MLAs is position.
