IS THE CONGRESS RIGHT IN EXPELLING MANI SHANKAR AIYER?

After Rahul Gandhi Rebuke, Congress Suspends Mani Shankar Aiyar Over "Neech" Remark NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar was suspended from the primary membership of the party on Thursday for calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "neech aadmi", a remark that PM Modi said was aimed at his humble origins. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had responded to the volley of attacks from the BJP over the comment by his sharp disapproval of the language used by Mr Aiyar during the day and asking him to apologise. The Congress' decision to later suspend Mr Aiyar and seek his explanation is seen as an attempt to insulate the party from the controversy that erupted just two days before the first phase of Assembly elections in Gujarat. The BJP and PM Modi, who was campaigning in Gujarat, had invoked Mr Aiyar's remarks to target the Congress through the day. "Shriman Mani Shankar Aiyar today said that Modi is of 'neech jaati' (low caste) and is 'neech' (vile). Is this not an insult to Gujarat? This is an insult to the great legacy of India. This is born of Mughal mentality," he told an election rally in the state's diamond city, Surat. PM Modi...

SHOULD TRIPLE TALAQ BE BANNED IN EVERY SENSE?

Triple talaq: Govt plans to make practice a punishable offence, likely to table Bill in winter session Three months after the Supreme Court set aside the centuries-old practice of instant triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat in which Muslim men divorce their wives by uttering talaq three times in quick succession, the government has taken the first step to consider a legislation that will make triple talaq a criminal offence. A Bill to this effect is likely to be tabled in the winter session of Parliament. “The government is contemplating making talaq-e-biddat a criminal offence. Very serious consideration is being given by the government,” a senior government functionary said Tuesday. A committee of ministers has been constituted to finetune the legislation, the official said. The committee comprises Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi.

Is Linking Adhaar Card to Everything a Danger to Privacy?

PROBLEMS WITH ADHAAR CONTINUE! NEW DELHI: There is relief on the way for mobile phone users, particularly senior citizens, facing difficulties in complying with the Supreme Court's order linking Aadhaar with mobiles as proxy authorisation may soon be permitted for the purpose. The options being considered by the government in consultation with telecom companies include use of online OTP (one time password) for mobile numbers registered with the Unique Identification Authority of India, alternatives such as iris scanning for per sons whose fingerprints are indistinct and home visits for senior citizens. Sources said the UIDAI is expected to issue directions outlining the options that could be made available to mobile users to comply with the SC ruling so that the process is completed with minimum inconvenience to the public. There has been concern that public annoyance over time consuming procedures was reflecting poorly on the government even though it had not sought Aadhaar linkage to phones. The proxy authorisation option will see a person nominated by a senior citizen verify ing Aadhaar linkage for the mobile user. As of now, it is not clear whether the facility will be restricted to senior citizens or be available to other mobile users as well. The...

Youth Unemployment – We all are responsible by Areesha Fatma

Instead of beginning with the same mundane way of penning down my article, here I would like to share a small incident which at second level intrigued me to write on this crucial issue. (*Here, first level credits goes to the man behind this amazing website). Here, it goes, while sipping a medium cup of coffee at one of the cafes in South Delhi, I observed a group of 3-4 youngsters probably college students or pass-outs, they must be of around 22 or 23 years of age. I somehow overheard their conversation from my table as the place was not that much crowded with people. The thing which took my attention to their conversation was ‘job chahiye hai yaar’, their further conversations gave me an understanding that they were looking for a job and in this process were facing various issues. Even one of them quoted that despite studying from good college, they were unable to get a suitable employment from them. While this was one of the incident, the other problem which I constantly keep on listening from my friends these days is dissatisfaction with their jobs/current employment due to low salary, boss concerns, timings, work pressure...

HAS THE AGENDA OF POLLUTION TAKEN A BACKSEAT AGAIN?

Air quality dipping rapidly, Delhi government issues health advisory NEW DELHI: Air quality in Delhi, which remained 'very poor' for the fourth straight day today, is set to nosedive further, leading to the Delhi government advising people to stay indoors as much as possible. High moisture content and lack of winds have triggered the spike, the city government said. The Centre said it will take "harsh measures", if needed, to prevent any repeat of the recent smog episode. The Central Pollution Control Board registered the day's air quality inde .. Read more at: ET New ‘gas standards’ in the works to fight pollution The government is looking to prepare a unified testing methodology to ensure that all agencies that map air pollution use accurate instruments. The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) -National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is in the process of setting up ‘gas standards’, or reference samples of Carbon Monoxide (CO), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrous Oxide (NO2) and Particulate –Pb (lead), –As (Arsenic) and –Ni (Nickel). Currently, the National Ambient Air Quality standards specify the upper limits for pollutants and, based on this, the Air Quality Index — that grades air quality in cities from ‘Good’ to ‘Severe’ — is prepared for several...

HAS THE GOVT. FAILED TO CONTROL POLLUTION?

Delhi Pollution Hits 'Severe' Levels, City Wakes Up To Thick Smog NEW DELHI: Delhi woke up to 'severe' air quality today under a blanket of thick haze, as pollution levels breached the permissible standards by multiple times. The rapid fall in air quality and visibility began last evening itself as moisture combined with pollutants shrouded the city in a thick cover of haze. By 10 am today, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) recorded 'severe' air quality, meaning the intensity of pollution was extreme. In light of the sudden dip, measures under the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) such as a four times hike in parking fees may be rolled out by the Supreme Court-mandated Environment Pollution Prevention and Control Authority. If the situation deteriorates further and persists for at least 48 hours, the task force under the GRAP will mull shutting schools and enforcing the odd-even car rationing scheme. The last time air had turned 'severe' was on October 20, a day after Diwali festivities, when firecrackers were set off.

WILL THE GUJARAT ELECTIONS BE A REFLECTION OF THE NATIONAL MOOD?

Gujarat elections to set the stage for 2019 Lok Sabha battle The Gujarat elections are not about Gujarat alone—all eyes are on the 2019 general elections. A thumping win in the Gujarat elections slated for December would not only pave the way for the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) victory in 2019 Lok Sabha election campaign but also boost its performance in other state elections. For Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the election in his home state is a battle for prestige, with “development” being his slogan. Modi is likely to start a whirlwind campaign of the state later this month by addressing dozens of public rallies and holding roadshows. The party’s campaign “Hun chu vikas, hun chu Gujarat“ (I am development, I am Gujarat) is woven around its star campaigner Modi. This is similar to a 2012 campaign slogan: “Hun Modi no manas chu” (I am Modi’s man). “If the 2012 Gujarat elections where the BJP won for the third successive time under Modi as its CM was a personal battle for the race for the prime ministerial post, the 2017 Gujarat elections are now of national significance both for Modi and the BJP. A reduction in its numbers could mean that the Modi...
