Legislature still hasnt officially sent budget to governor

first_imgWhen the legislature passed the budget last week, state workers thought they were in the clear. No need for pink slips. If they hadn’t passed a budget, the state would have been required to send layoff notices to all of its employees–just like they did last year.Download AudioState workers remain in limbo until Gov. Bill Walker signs the budget. (Photo by Lisa Phu, KTOO – Juneau)There’s only one problem – the legislature hasn’t officially sent the budget to Gov. Bill Walker. And until that happens, state workers are still in limbo.As executive director of the largest state workers union in Alaska — American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 52 — Jim Duncan is concerned that the legislature hasn’t sent the budget bill to Walker. And until that happens, Walker can’t sign it and workers can’t be 100% sure they’ll have jobs come July 1.“I surely hope they’re not holding it to play a game with the governor, to put pressure on him,” Duncan said.Duncan said the longer the legislature waits, the less time Walker will have to decide whether to sign the measure.“The delay in transmitting the budget does cause some concern,” Duncan said. “And it could be part of the administrative process – it’s just taking time on the legislative branch. Or it could be a strategy on the part of the legislature to wait until the final moment – the final days of June.”It’s a little-known quirk of state law that bills don’t automatically go to the governor to be signed.  Either the Senate president or the speaker of the House decides when it will land on the governor’s desk.In the case of the budget, it’s up to House Speaker and Nikiski Republican Mike Chenault. He said there’s no particular reason why the bill hasn’t been transmitted. But he said state workers shouldn’t be worried.“We haven’t got around to it yet,” Chenault said. “There’s no foul play expected. There’s nothing sinister going on. It’s just part of the legislative process. It just hasn’t been a big priority. We’ve been working on oil tax legislation and other things. And, you know, the employees won’t get laid off tomorrow if the budget doesn’t get sent to the governor tomorrow, so there’s no concerns there.”A spokesperson for Walker reiterated that the legislature passed a fully funded budget and pink slips won’t go out to state workers, but didn’t directly address the delay.last_img read more

Farmers seek crop loan waiver at one go

first_imgMahbubnagar: The farmers of Mahbubnagar district have demanded that the State government implement its promise of waiving farm loans immediately and at one go so that farmers reap the benefits or else they would be burdened with the accruing interest on the loans’Speaking at a programme in Mahbubnagar on Tuesday, Jakkula Venkataiah, Raitanga Samithi State secretary leader, alleged that the State government which had promised to resolve all the problems of the farmers before coming to power has forgotten its promise after it assumed power and has been ignoring the farming community.

Even though 10 months have passed since the TRS came to power for the second time in the State, it has not waived farm loans. Even the Rythu Bandhu scheme is not being implemented properly with only a few farmers receiving the benefits and others still running from pillar to post for receiving the benefits,” said Venkataiah.

Temporary relief for Jet Airways Airline gets 300 million as lease incentives

first_imgIn July 2017, Jet Airways had asked its junior pilots, who joined the brand in 2016, to take a 30 percent pay cut or leaveReutersIn a temporary relief to the debt-laden Jet airways, domestic banks have disbursed a liquidity support of $ 300 million in the form of advance lease incentives and borrowings. The airline which had reported a loss in successive quarters also affirmed that both the airline and auditors are on the same lines on the finances.Jet Airways deputy chief executive and chief financial officer Amit Agarwal informed that the company got a liquidity support of $ 300 million towards lease incentives and bank borrowings. He, however, did not reveal the breakup.Recently, Jet Airways had announced a net loss of whopping Rs. 1,323 crore for the quarter ended in June due to higher crude oil price, depreciating rupee and competitive fares. However, the income marginally increased from Rs. 5,953 crore to Rs. 6,066 crore during the same period last year.Notably, Jet Airways had registered a loss of Rs. 1,036 crore in the last quarter of the financial year 2017-18. The losses in two consecutive quarters forced the airline to chart out a revival plan to improve pricing, better inventory management, monetising its JetPrivilege programme and wet leasing some of its smaller aircraft.The airlines’ had scheduled its June quarter results on August 9 but post its annual general body meeting, it informed that board could not consider the accounts as the company’s audit committee was headless.Eventually, Vinay Dube, Chief executive officer clarified that there was no difference of opinion with the auditors and they continued to audit the company’s accounts. He also clarified that Q1 2018 i.e June-quarter results were delayed to materialize the cost-reduction programme.It is to be noted that the airline companies in India are facing tough times due to stiff pricing and rise in crude oil prices in the international market. The national carrier Air India is also facing the same cash-crunch problem due to the same issue.last_img read more

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen X Share Click arrows to view images in the slideshowIt was that day in April when the rain seemed like it just wouldn’t stop. Officials said flooding was inevitable.“I don’t care where you are or what kind of flood program you have, you start getting that much rainfall in a short period of time less than  24 hours, you’re going to have massive flooding, that’s what we’re seeing here today,” said John Dosh, a county emergency official.Scientists said the storm seemed to be part of a new pattern.“You are getting storm events that were exceedingly rare and you’re getting them more often,” said David Tomasko, an environmental scientist.But Tomasko and Dosh weren’t talking about what happened in April in Houston, Texas. They were talking with public radio station WUWF in Pensacola, Florida about a big storm there that hit that city in April, April of 2014.Just like in Houston in April 2016, a foot-and-a-half of rain flooded several thousand homes and did tens of millions of dollars of damage to roads and bridges in Pensacola and the surrounding Escambia County.The Escambia County Public Works Director, Joy Blackmon, told us what should sound familiar to people in Houston: some places flooded like never before.“The rainfall affected many large areas that had retention ponds that had never flooded before and those ponds were over-topped and caused damage,” said Blackmon.In the days after the storm, just like in Houston, people in Pensacola said something’s not right. They began looking for solutions.“A commission was developed called a Storm Water Advisory Team that conducted public meetings and tracked progress, both the city and the county,” said Derrik Owens, Pensacola’s Public Works director.  That joint, county and city Storm Water Advisory Team commissioned studies of how and why the water flowed the way it did in some of the worst hit areas. What did it find?“The sins of the past have come back to haunt us,” said Blackmon, the county official.Those sins of the past were where development was allowed in flood prone areas in the 1980s, development that had it occurred a decade later, would had to have met new, stricter flood codes.Blackmon said those new rules now mean developers have to build detention ponds to hold rainwater and then release it slowly.“Where we have been able to make improvements the flood did not nearly affect them like it would have,” said Blackmon.But even in some areas where the stricter standards were enforced, Pensacola found those standards weren’t enough, since they meant for more common but less severe rain events, called 25 year floods. So now, updated standards will mean lots developed in the future will have to be built to handle more severe 100 year rain storms.But Blackmon said the April 2014 storm was ranked as a 200 year event.“We can’t design everything to those standards but at least we want to design any new development to the 100 year standard,” said Blackmon.Other problems uncovered by the Storm Water Advisory Team and other efforts included the discovery of old streams that had been covered over by new development which then flooded. Pensacola’s now considering re-creating those old streams.It’s also looking to expand the size of retention ponds that had once worked, but which now are no longer big enough, because of so much new development.And the city and county are looking to create more acreage to absorb water, meaning that in some areas, pavement and other “impervious” cover might be ripped and replaced with more absorbent surfaces.Derrick Owens, the city official, said Pensacola, like Houston, has a long history of flooding and of making improvements aimed at reducing damage.“It’s a moving target. I don’t think you can ever say you’re halfway there. Because there’s always room for improvement,” said Owens.  None of this might be news to Houston or any other growing city that has faced repeated flooding. But Pensacola is one place gaining a national reputation for how it’s coordinating many different approaches to achieve one goal: keeping more property and people out of harm’s way the next time the rain seems like it just won’t stop. 00:00 /03:44last_img read more

Chemotherapy Preferable to Radiotherapy to Reduce Distant Pancreatic Cancer Recurrences

first_imgNews | Radiation Therapy | March 07, 2016 Chemotherapy Preferable to Radiotherapy to Reduce Distant Pancreatic Cancer Recurrences Study results suggest that patients with resectable pancreatic cancer should receive at least six months of adjuvant chemotherapy Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

While a course of radiotherapy in addition to chemotherapy and a cancer operation reduced the number of local disease recurrences, it did not affect distant recurrences or survival.The study, published online in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons in advance of print publication, evaluated survival and disease recurrence in 1,130 patients who underwent successful surgical resection for pancreatic cancer between January 2000 and December 2010. Most patients had grade 2, Stage II disease (grade 4, Stage IV is the most advanced), and they received no treatment for cancer prior to surgery. Alexander A. Parikh, M.D., MPH, FACS, associate professor of surgery at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn., led the study; its results were presented at the Southern Surgical Association meeting in Hot Springs, Va., in December 2015.Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death in the United States, according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with an estimated 48,960 new cases per year. Although surgical resection offers a potential cure, most patients have locally advanced or metastatic disease at diagnosis. Consequently, only 10 to 15 percent of patients are candidates for a potentially curative operation. Even among patients whose disease has been successfully resected, recurrence is common. Between 50 and 90 percent of patients have recurrences, and most of these patients die because of their disease.Because of the high incidence of disease recurrence, adjuvant therapy is given routinely after surgery for pancreatic cancer. Adjuvant therapy typically involves systemic chemotherapy given with or without chemoradiotherapy. A six-month course of chemotherapy is considered to be standard. The role of adjuvant chemoradiation, however, is often used at the discretion of the treating physician, and is usually recommended for patients who have signs of local disease advancement, such as positive lymph nodes or positive surgical margins.Parikh noted that this study is the first to examine the relationship between adjuvant chemotherapy and chemotherapy plus radiation on the patterns of disease recurrence and overall survival after primary surgical resection of pancreatic cancer. It was conducted by the Central Pancreatic Consortium (CPC), which includes nine academic medical centers that treat high volumes of patients with pancreatic cancer. “Individual institutions may differ slightly in the way they treat pancreatic cancer patients. When we do a collective, multicenter study, we decrease those differences and can provide insights that reflect the majority of what good pancreatic cancer care in America is,” he said.The researchers assessed the patterns of disease recurrence in three groups of patients: those who underwent a surgical procedure alone, those who had adjuvant chemotherapy and those who had radiotherapy in addition to chemotherapy. Patients were followed for a median period of 18 months. Parikh explained that a previous study by CPC a few years ago found that radiotherapy did not affect survival in certain groups of patients. “The goal here was to determine how adjuvant therapy affects disease recurrence.”When controlling for several associated factors, adjuvant chemotherapy led to a 29 percent improvement in overall survival when compared to surgery alone while chemoradiation did not significantly improve survival. The incidence of local recurrence was significantly decreased by both chemotherapy (41 percent) and chemoradiation (49 percent). The incidence of distant recurrence was significantly lower only after chemotherapy (26 percent). It was not affected by chemoradiation.”Unless we get better evidence to show that radiation helps in resected pancreatic cancer, we believe adjuvant therapy should be confined to chemotherapy after surgery,” Parikh said.Parikh pointed out that while delivering adjuvant chemoradiotherapy, physicians significantly reduce the amount of chemotherapy that is administered. “All patients should get at least six months of chemotherapy. If there is a role for chemoradiotherapy, it should not be given at the expense of giving less chemotherapy,” he concluded.Study coauthors are Amelia Maiga, M.D., MPH; David Bentrem, M.D., FACS; Malcolm H.

Of course Arians said getting his offensive linem

first_imgOf course, Arians said getting his offensive linemen healthy will be the biggest thing.Banking on Nkemdiche?To classify Robert Nkemdiche’s rookie season as anything other than a disappointment would be a bit disingenuous, given that the first-round pick appeared in just five games and notched three tackles, one pass defensed, one QB hit and one QB pressure. An ankle injury suffered in training camp set him back, and his effort, which was questioned at times during college, popped up as an issue in the NFL.“I wouldn’t say any of those concerns were off the field, other than just learning to be a pro,” Arians said. “When a little bit of time he was healthy, we saw all the things we needed to see that we made the right pick.“That ankle injury was more severe than probably any of us knew until the end of the season, when it re-occurred and there was a slight tear. It’s all healed now, but I think, again, when you kick everybody’s [butt] from high school to college, you don’t have to work that hard. But all of a sudden these guys are kicking your [butt], and you better learn how to work.”Arians said that goes for all rookies — not just Nkemdiche — and that he learned to work by the second half of the season. PHOENIX — The Arizona Cardinals’ roster is not yet complete, but aside from what players they add in the NFL Draft and in the days that follow it, not much more is likely to change.So, where does the team stand? Is it better than the roster that put together a 7-8-1 season in 2016?Head coach Bruce Arians seems to think so, and on Wednesday at the Arizona Biltmore as part of the NFL Owner’s Meetings he gave some insight into his roster. Much of what he said has or will be turned into stories, such as his thoughts on finding a QB, the idea that David Johnson cannot be overused, the Cardinals don’t need to spend a high pick on a receiver and the team is fine at cornerback, but for the rest of the notes that did not quite make the story cut, there is this: Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “We’re so fortunate we have two left tackles — most people don’t have any,” Arians said. “Somebody’s going to play right; right now it appears Jared is going to make that move.“I haven’t completely sold on it, but I want to see him at that position first. I saw D.J. play right, so I’m fine there. So I would like to see Jared try it because it’s all about what’s best for the team, and he is the ultimate team player.”While the tackles are the more high-profile spots along the line, the only drama surrounding them involves which player will man which side. With the interior portion of the front, there are some question marks.Like, for instance, what will happen at right guard?“I think Evan Boehm, those last three ball games, showed that he can play that position,” Arians said. “He will start at right guard the first day.”Boehm was thought to be competing for the center job — and he still may — but Arians said the team bringing back last year’s starter, A.Q. Shipley, was important.“To get Q back was huge because he knows the offense and he’s so comfortable with Carson (Palmer),” he said. “Evan did such a good job at guard, I wanted to leave him there.” In fairness, the team did not exactly need him to play a big role last season. But with Calais Campbell now in Jacksonville, the 29th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft will be expected to take on a larger role on the defensive line.It’s Miller time — maybeA sixth-round pick, Harlan Miller spent the first 15 weeks of the 2016 season on the Cardinals’ practice squad. The cornerback was promoted to the active roster for Week 16 against the Seahawks, but when he found his way onto the field it was at safety.That’s where Miller played for the final two games of the season, in which Miller acquitted himself well by collecting six total tackles and one interception.According to Arians, Miller will stay at safety.“We’re going to leave him at safety, knowing we have an extra corner,” he said. “He trained his whole life as a corner, we’ll train him at safety.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   Karlos adds to the linebackersThe Cardinals’ addition of veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby may not have resonated outside of the Valley, though in Arizona, there is probably plenty of excitement over him coming back.One of the more popular players in team history, Dansby is 35-years old and beginning his third stint with the franchise. Though he is closer to the end of his career than its beginning, Arians is bullish on the linebacker’s prospects.“We were so much better with Karlos, with his leadership,” Arians said. “Karlos has those freaky genetics, where he may play four more years.”With the Bengals last season, Dansby recorded 114 total tackles and one sack; with the Cardinals in 2013, he posted 122 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, 19 passes defensed and four interceptions.“He just never ages,” Arians said. “I was shocked — I turned on the tape and he looked younger this year than he did last year. The tape doesn’t lie.”Arians said the plan is for Dansby to line up next to $ LB Deone Bucannon, and acknowledged it would be nice to find a young inside linebacker to learn under the veteran.Along the lineCardinals tackle Jared Veldheer has been learning how to play on the right side because he, like most people, anticipate him making the switch from left tackle to right tackle. That would allow third-year pro D.J. Humphries to move from the right side to the left side, where he appears to be more comfortable.

blamed for the poor implementation of projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics On Nepal Modi has much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now Prime Minister Narendra Modi made every effort to be seen as Nepal’s best friend — a commoner a pilgrim the guardian of a Nepali in need and less of a prime minister of a big country By the time he left Nepal he had won the hearts and minds of the Nepalese imprinting deeply the idea that he alone has the will and ability to transform Nepal into a prosperous country His repeated emphasis on India’s respect for Nepal’s sovereignty and the message that missed opportunities of the past and failed promises should not act as speed-breakers in “our future journey to prosperity together” were perhaps aimed at looking ahead at the future not harping on the past Modi knew that all these personalities he projected would consolidate his image and goodwill in a country where India is perceived as a neighbour with a big gap between promise and delivery — and of late a neighbour that involves itself more in Nepal’s internal politics and pursues a policy of “divide and rule” Modi brought along with him Jeet Bahadur Saru Magar — a Nepali boy that he had a chance meeting with in Ahmedabad about 16 years ago and adopted — ostensibly to “reunite” him with his family that was discovered two years ago at Modi’s initiative Jeet had come to Nepal two years ago soon after the family was discovered and was in constant touch with them But Modi’s decision to bring Jeet along get his entire family to Kathmandu pose with them for a photo-op and give them gifts generated such publicity that this affair appears to have paid him the biggest dividend of his Nepal visit “Years ago I came here as a pilgrim And anyone who comes to Nepal once will always belong here [sic]” he said in Nepali before he began his extempore speech in the parliament By projecting the image of a benevolent guardian and a devotee of Shiva — from Somnath to Pashupatinath via Vishwanath — he could easily establish a bond with a predominantly Hindu Nepal a country with a potential for religious tourism Jawaharlal Nehru disapproved of then President Rajendra Prasad’s wish to go to the renovation ceremony of the Somnath temple in the early 1950s on the ground that it would set a wrong precedent in a secular country But almost 60 years later Nehru’s successor took pride in offering special worship at the Pashupatinath temple and spending an hour there as a devotee something none of India’s prime ministers before Modi had done That the new Indian prime minister is a commoner and “someone like us” was the general feeling in Nepal Was it all only part of diplomacy Nobody in Nepal seems to believe that at least for now But then Modi the prime minister was much at ease in delivering the messages he wanted to — that Nepali politicians must rise above partisan politics in making the constitution While he sent across the message that India would be happy if Nepal wrote a federal republican constitution he also said “that must bring poor and rich rural and urban hill mountain and Terai together” That was a clear disapproval of the identity-implying caste- and ethnicity-based federalism — a common agenda of the Maoists and Madhesi parties — something India had lent its support to earlier His emphasis was more on linking the country and its people with its diverse geography culture and socioeconomic strata than wedging a divide on caste and ethnic lines He also maintained his silence on whether India wishes Nepal to be a secular or a Hindu nation A quiet warning and praise for Maoists for switching to “Buddha from Yuddha” — from war to peace — also showed that Modi was cautiously optimistic about their contribution to the constitution-writing “The entire world is looking at you Your success will discourage many who believe weapons can bring about change” — the hidden message was more obvious The consequences of Nepal which has already bungled one chance not having a constitution on time would be enormous After all an orderly society guided by a constitution alone will provide the stability that is the pre-requisite for business and investment — Modi’s clear focus The 5600 MW Pancheshwar project which remained stalled for 18 years after the agreement will see its work start within a year He assured the Nepali side that India will not want Nepal’s electricity or power for free: “We will buy it and that alone will change the face of Nepal… We will provide power to you now but 10 years hence you will remove our darkness” he said hinting India will move fast on the implementation of projects now Modi returns to New Delhi with much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now as the promises enter the delivery phase More than that the hope that Modi has generated will have to confront the image of the Indian government’s bureaucracy and intelligence largely blamed for the poor implementation of past projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics The bureaucracy will not refute the allegation But it cannot be wished away so easily The challenge lies in getting it to perform as per decisions reached at the political level on both sides Modi’s probation in Nepal begins now yubarajghimire@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

completely new brand of people running government Mercifully there are no ministers educated abroad Thankfully none of them has been brainwashed at Harvard Stanford Cambridge the World Bank or the IMF subtly forcing expensive Western solutions on typically Indian problems at the cost of the poor Look what the high-powered foreign-returned degree-wallahs have reduced this country to They wasted opportunities to show the inner strength of what is essentially Indian because they never really knew their own people living in Bharat In the eyes of the world we have lost our self-respect dignity and identity All the ministers now have gone through average government schools Some have never been to college Many have experienced poverty exploitation injustice and discrimination at some point of time in their lives It is truly the first barefoot government ever to be voted into power in independent India Where else in the world would you have a one-time tea-seller on a railway station becoming prime minister shaping the destiny of more than one billion people The first example the Modi government must set is by drastically reducing the perks and privileges of MPs Free power food housing travel to those whose personal assets run into crores and a Rs 2 crore annual fund for development (read patronage) for over 500 MPs is costing the exchequer nearly Rs 2000 crore Only the prime minister will be able to make it happen and at the same time stifle any dissent from BJP MPs The time is now No other government in the world has a Class 12-pass woman minister speaking as an equal to almost 120 heavily qualified on paper vice chancellors (90 per cent male) Today as we judge them the VCs are all too intellectually and morally fatigued There is something dreadfully wrong with an education system that produces graduates from even private expensive snobbish schools and colleges who are still prejudiced about caste class religion sex and colour These “graduates” who roam the streets of small towns and cities by the thousands call themselves “educated” practice the worst forms of cruelty slavery and crimes against humanity against society and in their own families Indeed some of them rose to the level of their incompetence by becoming ministers in previous governments reinforcing the status quo wasting vast public resources by implementing silly Western ideas listening to foreign-returned “experts” and making a hopeless mess of this country The tragedy is that they cannot see the colossal damage they have done to the very fabric of this country Now they will call me a “namak haram” because I went to Doon School and St Stephen’s College and I am trashing my own kind They deserve it Their snobbish elitist education has made them arrogant inaccessible insensitive and devoid of any humanity or humility Just because they received a Western education they think they know their country Superficially they may know urban India but they are clueless about rural Bharat Alvin Toffler in his book Future Shock said “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be someone who cannot read or write It will be someone who is not prepared to learn unlearn and relearn” In the 40 years that I have lived and worked with the rural poor in Rajasthan what have I learnt that I did not manage to make my own kind “unlearn and relearn” It was not for want of trying What did the prime minister the deputy chairman of the Planning Commission and finance minister of the decimated UPA government have in common They were all “educated” abroad They were all for subsidising the rich and cutting subsidies for the poor They had no idea about real poverty and hunger and how the rural poor survived expecting the whole country to be gullible enough to believe that the rural poor today could survive on Rs 27 per day Out of sheer ignorance of rural realities and showing extremely poor political judgement the three of them almost managed to strangle the MGNREGA The MGNREGA prevented migration by the millions into cities The bungling and corruption by village officials notwithstanding the rural poor now have more money to spend on food clothing housing and essentials So of course prices will go up The prime minister is evidently serious about improving the quality of life of the rural poor as he eloquently stated in his speech on Independence Day So what are the out of the box solutions that need to be considered urgently The MGNREGA should stay with “Modi-fications” Pay minimum wages which the Congress’s three armchair foreign-returned economists so stubbornly and unethically refused to do in spite of a high court order Make it more transparent and accountable take action against corrupt officials exposed in social audits to set an example Pass the public grievance bill in Parliament as soon as possible Call a meeting of respected grassroot practitioners across political ideologies who know the MGNREGA from the village level and follow up on their recommendations The focus has to be on innovative job creation in the rural areas Provide 100 days of employment at minimum wages to construct low-cost toilets for girls and rooftop rainwater harvesting tanks for drinking water tree plantations and flush toilets in rural schools by the thousands Construct rural godowns to store food grains instead of letting nearly 5 million tonnes of grain just rot in the open Start community colleges on Gandhian lines instead of sending delegations of “experts” on education to study the American model There are enough indigenous examples to replicate and scale up Civil society is riddled with defeated politicians and retired bureaucrats who having lost their power influence and privileges have started NGOs While they were in power they did not lift a finger to help them When these has-beens have nothing better to do they start NGOs They give genuine small civil society organisations a bad name Maybe it is time to revive the debate of the 1980s on the need for a code of conduct for NGOs The code would expect them to have a simple lifestyle take a living wage instead of a market wage and observe the laws of the country If we are fighting against crony capitalism we should also fight against cronyism in NGOs When the Council for Advancement of People’s Action and Rural Technology (CAPART) was closed down and replaced by a Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation (BRLF) in September 2013 it was done in complete secrecy The BRLF was never widely publicised and civil society was never invited to contribute to its formation It is designed to benefit a handful of select organisations — cronyism of the worst kind It was so much in contrast to the open debate that galvanised the voluntary sector over the code of conduct and which preceded the merger of the People’s Action for Development India (PADI) and the Council for Advancement of Rural Technology (CART) to form CAPART in 1986 What needs to be done Replace the national advisory council (NAC) with a voluntary action commission (VAC) The mandate of the VAC should be to identify the thousands of genuine grassroots groups who have an FCRA registration and submit their report to the home ministry It is not the job of the home ministry to judge the incredible work of community-based organisations A lot of effort has gone into the formulation of the BRLF

whenever he calls that individual someone else answers the call says "wrong number" and hangs up Singh says life was beautiful until he was labelled a Naxal Now he fears even going to college He’s always looking over his shoulder "I never know when the police will come to arrest me and beat me with canes for deeds I’ve never done" the law student says "One might not be a Naxal but police batons may end up turning someone into just that" Singh remarks Singh’s tone is tinged with self-pity as he talks about his family They were never well off to begin with and are now in deep financial trouble He says they aren’t getting support from anyone He takes another jab at the police and "our so-called system" and says he neverknew decrying fees hike and other evils would make him anti-national He says he even thought of ending his life a few times but decided he’d rather fight injustice than succumb to it The allegations While Singh cuts a sorry figure the man who filed the complaint against him refuses to feel any sympathy for him He says Singh has been spotted with "hardcore" Naxals and reels off a few names of Singh’s alleged partners-in-crime He says this group was planning an attack on the police He asks: If Singh is innocent what was he doing with Naxals on a hill He asks how police got a tip-offabout Singh palling around withthe rebels if he was innocent A senior police officer on the condition of anonymity says charges were framed against Singh only after a proper investigation The officer says police are certain about his involvement with Naxals and are convinced Singh acted against the nation The law According to Section 124A one of the sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) under which Singh has been booked: "Whoever brings or attempts to bring hatred or contempt or attempts to excite disaffection towards the government shall be punished with imprisonment for life or three years" In simple terms if someone misuses their right to free speech and tries to incite violence their actions amount to sedition Since it’s a cognisable offence the police don’t need a warrant to arrest an accused It’s a non-bailable as well as a non-compoundable offence which means a compromise between the accused and the complainant cannot terminate judicial proceedings If one is found guilty they may face three years behind bars or life imprisonment However the judgment takes a long time and during the hearings an accused has to live without a passport is barred from government jobs and have to produce themselves in court on a regular basis While conviction rate under this section is low the consequences of being booked itself amount to a punishment Student leaders who were in the eye of the storm over the Jawaharlal Nehru University row in February 2016 —Kanhaiya Kumar Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya —were also booked under Section 124A Hardik Patel from Gujarat who led the agitations in Gujarat in 2015 demanding reservation for the Patidar community was also slapped with the same charge Its history The contentious section was included in the IPC in 1870 and personalities of the stature of Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Mahatma Gandhi were booked under it Tilak was booked multiple times and had to spend six years behind bars for an editorial published in his newspaper Kesari In 1922 Gandhiji had to appear in court for his articles in his weekly paper Young India In the hearing the Father of the Nation denounced the law saying: "Section 124A under which I am happily charged is perhaps the prince among the political sections of the IPC designed to suppress the liberty of the citizen" After India had won its Independence and adopted its Constitution the country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru took a firm stand against the law on sedition "Take again Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code Now so far as I am concerned that particular section is highly objectionable and obnoxious and it should have no place both for practical and

already-slim frame for the role reports dailymailcouk The 21-year-old actress added that she has learned to “keep her mouth shut” over her years in the spotlight after shooting to fame at an age of

violation He can seriously He was there first Immediately after the incident Arnab Goswami triumphantly reported that all the Congress-wallahs and their shoo-flies had fled his channel fearing the worst Energetic Gandhi defendant Tehseen Poonawalla had exited last just a couple of hours before showtime Avid viewers may recall that in an earlier edition of Newshour Poonawalla had silently held up a sheet of paper to the camera on which was printed: “I have the answers but he just won’t let me speak” “You go on like a parrot” Goswami had complained “This is not a dumb charades programme” And finally the truth was out Goswami: “Poonawalla is determined to reduce himself to a caricature of my programme” Poonawalla: “But I’m on your show Drama is an integral part of it” In the absence of the usual Congress suspects the latest programme about Robert Vadra’s dealings in Haryana was doomed to be tame A desperate Goswami made a public appeal to the Congress and its friends to come to his show and answer all questions “Not doing so is an oligarchic attitude (sic)” he threatened When no one came he attacked NDTV saying that the cowardly kept away because his show was all hard question no “underarm deliveries like ‘will you join politics’” The snide reference was to long-ago colleague Barkha Dutt who had asked Vadra rather hopefully about his political ambitions in Rae Bareli during the 2012 assembly elections campaign It may be recalled that Vadra’s motorcycle rally at the time had caused shock and awe especially after an IAS officer was controversially transferred to Goa allegedly for waving the model code of conduct at him Briefly all too briefly the Swachh Bharat campaign got some attention First the Delhi BJP and Shazia Ilmi were red-faced when they were caught on camera staging a cleanup drive of litter which had been tastefully scattered by municipal employees in the first place But Kamal Haasan did the real stuff Closely watched by NDTV he celebrating his
