Sushma Swaraj’s husband comes to her rescue over troll, hits back at Twitter user
New Delhi: External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj’s husband Swaraj Kaushal hit back at a Twitter user who asked him to “beat her up” over Lucknow inter-faith passport row. Taking to Twitter, Kaushal asked the social media user to “not use such words for her”.
“Your words have given us unbearable pain. Just to share with you, my mother died of cancer in 1993. Sushma was an MP and a former Education Minister. She lived in the hospital for a year. She refused to engage a medical attendant and attended on my dying mother personally,” Kaushal tweeted.
“Such was her devotion to the family. As per my father’s wish, she lit my father’s pyre. We adore her. Please do not use such words for her. We are first generation in law and politics. We pray for nothing more than her life. Pls convey my profound regards to your wife,” he added. Kaushal re-tweeted a now-deleted tweet of Twitter user Mukesh Gupta, who asked him to beat his wife “when she comes home” and “teach her not to do Muslim appeasement” as “Muslims never vote for the BJP”.

The EAM was earlier also trolled by many Twitter users for helping an inter-faith couple, who were allegedly harassed by the officials of Lucknow passport office over their religion. On Saturday, after liking few of the negative tweets that came her way over the same issue, Sushma put up a poll on Twitter asking if people approved of them. “Friends: I have liked some tweets. This is happening for the last few days. Do you approve of such tweets? Please RT,” she tweeted.

Tripura: Man who was warning people about rumour-mongering lynched by angry mob
Agartala: One more person was reportedly lynched in Tripura on Thursday, this time in Kalachera under Subroom sub-division in the extreme south bordering Bangladesh.
The fresh incident took place in the afternoon when two persons who were alerting the people about rumour mongering on behalf of district administration through loudspeakers were suddenly attacked by a violent mob in Kalacherra area of Sabroom. The announcer, Sukanta Chakraborty of Manikghar under Sabroom police station, was killed on the spot, while the driver of the vehicle was severely beaten up. This incident is the second one of the kind on the same day.
Earlier on Thursday, a person was lynched while three others were injured by a mob suspecting them to be child lifters in Tripura’s Urabari area. The deceased, Zahir Khan, was from Uttar Pradesh and engaged in retailing of crockery and garments in remote markets for the last 20 years in Tripura.
The incident took place this morning when three of them reached Urabari in a car, and a mob comprising of more than 300 people attacked the trio after they mistook them to be child-traffickers. On receiving information, troopers from a nearby Tripura State Rifles camp rushed to the spot to rescue them but were overpowered by the mob. Later, an additional force was called and Police had to resort to tear gas shells, lathi-charge, and fire in the air to control the irate mob.
One of the injured Swapan Mia said, “There were around 300 to 400 people who attacked us. They suspected us child lifters in reference to the Mohanpur incident. I showed them my driving license, Aadhar and identity card but they still attacked us.” Last month, in a similar incident, two men were lynched by the villagers of Panjuri Kacharigaon in Assam’s Karbi Anglong after the mob mistook them as child lifters.
All these attacks are the result of panic created across the state after rumours were spread that a group of organised child lifters have entered the state which the state government and DGP have categorically denied and appealed to the people to stop spreading and believing on rumours. Meanwhile, internet services remain suspended in Tripura for 48 hours to stop the circulation of rumours through social media.
Maharashtra: Banker seeking sexual favour against loan sanction arrested from Nagpur
Nagpur (Maharashtra): Rajesh Hivse, the manager of the Central Bank of India’s Datala branch who allegedly sought sexual favours from a woman to clear a crop loan, was arrested from Nagpur on Monday. Hivase was arrested by a team of the Buldhana police and the Nagpur Crime Branch.
Earlier, the bank’s peon Manoj Chavan was arrested from Amravati on June 23. Over the weekend, Hivse and Chavan were suspended for demanding sexual favours from the wife of a farmer. Chandrapur District collector Nirupama Dange told ANI that the matter has been taken seriously at the administrative level, and would be raised in a fast track court shortly. The Maharashtra Police filed a case against Hivase and Chavan, under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code and various sections of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
According to the police, when the crop loan proposal was submitted, the bank manager had asked the farmer for a contact number so as to clear doubts, if any, during scrutiny. The farmer gave his wife’s contact number. The manager, who made a call to the farmer’s wife, however, spoke in an obscene and lewd manner and demanded sexual favours in return for clearing the loan request. In this regard, the Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana staged a protest in front of the bank’s Datala branch on Saturday. While the bank was closed, the protestors broke the bank’s board and painted its wall black.

Constitution in danger, many people living in an atmosphere of insecurity: Goa-Daman archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrao
Panaji: Archbishop of Goa and Daman Father Filipe Neri Ferrao has said that Constitution was in danger and many people are living in an atmosphere of insecurity. In a letter addressed to Christians, he said the constitution should be understood better as general elections are drawing closer.
The archbishop also said that human rights are under attack and democracy appears to be in peril. The letter, issued in the beginning of Pastoral Year that lasts from June 1 to May 31, is addressed to Christians in the Archdiocese of Goa and Daman. “Today, our Constitution is in danger (and that is) the reason why most of the people are living in insecurity,” the archbishop said.
“In this context, particularly as the general elections are fast approaching, we must strive to know our constitution better and work harder to protect it,” the letter stated. The archbishop said that “in recent times, we see a new trend emerging in our country, which demands uniformity in what and how we eat, dress, live and even worship: a kind of mono-culturalism.”
“Human rights are under attack and democracy appears to be in peril,” Ferrao said, adding that “various minorities fear for their safety. In short, respect for law is frankly on the decline in this country.” He said that people were being uprooted from their land and homes in the name of development and quoted Pope Francis who said that “the first victim of development is the poor person”.
“It is easier to trample upon the rights of the poor, because those who will raise their voice for them are very few,” he added. The archbishop called for the participation of Catholics and Church communities in politics and social causes. “Our parishes and small Christian communities ought to be immersed in this mission of the Church. They should be open to the problems of the world. This social concern should not only remain within the confines of the parish community but should reach out to the whole state and country at large,” Ferrao said in the letter.
He said that it was advisable that the faithful play an active role in the political field. They should, however, follow the dictates of their conscience while doing so and shun “sycophantic” politics, he added. “They should thus strengthen democracy and, on the other hand, help to improve the functioning of the state administration,” he said. The archbishop also expressed concern about malnutrition among children in the country.
“According to global multi dimensional poverty index, 30 per cent of the global population of children living in poverty reside in India,” he said. “Why India is struck by extreme poverty? 73 per cent of our countrys resources are controlled by 10 per cent of the population. The existing extreme poverty is therefore the result of rampant social injustice prevailing in the country,” the archbishop said.
Notably, Delhi archbishop Anil Couto had last month stated in a letter that a “turbulent political atmosphere” posed a threat to India’s democratic principles and secular fabric. In his letter to all parish priests and religious institutions in Delhi archdiocese, Couto had also appealed to the followers of his faith to launch a “prayer campaign” ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Health Ministry puts down proposals of 159 medical colleges for admissions in MBBS course
New Delhi: The Health Ministry has shot down proposals of 159 medical colleges, including 47 run by the government, for admissions in MBBS course in the academic year 2018-19. It means denial of over 20,000 seats, as against the existing admissions on 60,000 seats.
These include 68 new medical colleges, as also 82 existing medical colleges that have been asked not to admit a fresh batch despite already running the course, some even for three to five years. Nine other colleges were denied permission to increase the seats. The decisions, notified on the ministry website last weekend, are based on the recommendations from the Medial Council of India, the apex regulatory body for medical education that assesses whether colleges have the required infrastructure, faculty and number of patients. The regulator cited “deficiencies,” expressing concern that even the government colleges do not bother about meeting the requirements.
The number of medical colleges that got the red slip, directing them not to grant any admission in the coming academic year include 12 in Madhya Pradesh, 11 Maharashtra and 9 in Rajasthan. A MCI spokesman said the council is aware of acute shortage of at least five lakh doctors in the country as there are only 10,41,395 doctors, but it cannot compromise with quality of education as it would be otherwise playing with life of the people.
Government likely to announce Rs 7,000 crore package for sugarcane farmers
New Delhi: Post Kairana by poll loss and concerned over mounting sugarcane arrears of more than Rs 22,000 crore, the government is likely to announce a bailout package of over Rs 7,000 crore to enable cash-starved mills to partially clear the dues of farmers.
The amount will include creation of buffer stock of 30 LMT (lakh metric tonnes), for which the money will be transferred directly to farmers’ bank accounts. The minimum price for sale of sugar is likely to be fixed anywhere between Rs 30-Rs 20 a kg. The package is also expected to include a scheme worth over Rs. 4,400 crore for increasing the capacity for production of ethanol, one of the by-products of sugarcane.A decision in this regard is expected to be taken in a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs scheduled on Tuesday, sources said.
Agrarian distress is expected to be a major poll plank in the run-up to the 2019 elections. Cane arrears was the central issue that led to the BJP’s rout in the recently concluded by-elections in Kairana, Uttar Pradesh – the largest cane producing state in the country. Last month, the government had announced Rs 1,500 crore production-linked subsidy for sugarcane farmers to help millers make cane payments but it did not help them tide over the simmering anger.
Sugar mills are unable to make payments to cane growers as their financial health has worsened due to a sharp fall in sugar prices after a record production of 31.6 million tonne (MT) thus far in the 2017-18 season (October-September). The maximum cane dues of more than Rs 12,000 crore have accrued in Uttar Pradesh alone, the country’s biggest sugarcane producing state.
Fresh violence in Shillong, Centre rushes more forces
Shillong : The Army conducted flag marches on Monday after fresh outbreak of violence, including an attack by protesters on a CRPF camp on Sunst night, in the Meghalaya capital where authorities re-imposed curfew.
More that 15 companies of CRPF (100 personnel each) have been deployed in Shillong, officials said, while the Centre today sent an additional 10 companies of paramilitary forces to restore peace in the city where normal life was disrupted for the fourth day following clashes between local tribals and Punjabi residents.
After curfew was relaxed for eight hours yesterday, fresh clashes broke out last night, prompting police to use tear gas shells to quell the mobs, a police officer said.
Protesters pelted stones at the CRPF camp at Mawlai, situated just below Jaiaw Lumsyntiew locality last night, the officer said.
CRPF IG Prakash D told PTI that three CRPF personnel received minor injuries and were given medical treatment at the camp itself. “There is no immediate threat to their life and there was no report of damage to property at the camp,” he said.
Officials said curfew was reimposed at 4 pm today and would continue till further orders.
Chief Minister Conrad S Sangma chaired an all-party meeting in Shillong over the violence and announced formation of a committee which will find a “permanent solution to the long pending issue” of relocation of sweeper colony from Them Metor near Bara Bazaar, where the clashes had started on Thursday.
Sangma also briefed a four-member team sent by the Punjab government. Punjab Jail Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, who led the delegation, said the members of the community were safe in the state. They will meet representatives of Punjabi community on Tuesday.
The Army conducted flag march today in the affected areas including Laitumkhrah, Polo and Baza Bazaar after curfew was imposed by district authorities, Defence spokesperson Ratnakar Singh told PTI.
He said the Army was called in on June 1. About 300 displaced civilians, mostly women and children, were rescued and they returned to their homes here the following day, Singh said.
The district authorities have clamped curfew in the entire state capital here to contain the situation and prevent the spread of protests to other parts of the city.
East Khasi Hills district deputy commissioner said the night curfew in the state capital was preponed from 10 pm to 4 pm after intelligence inputs indicated that about 500 “protesters” have entered the city.
The curfew, although relaxed on Sunday for few hours, will continue until further orders, he said.
The CPRF IG informed that 15 companies of CRPF have been deployed at the various locations which the district authorities have identified as vulnerable to attacks.
The National Commission for Minorities will send a member to Shillong to investigate the clashes, the panel’s chief said The panel has decided to send its member Manjit Singh Rai from Punjab to Shillong to assess the situation, said NCM chairperson Syed Ghayorul Hasan Rizvi.
The trouble started on Thursday after two groups of people in the city’s Punjabi Line area clashed after a bus handyman was allegedly beaten up by a group of residents.
More than 10 people, including policemen, were injured in the violence. One person has been arrested so far in connection with the assault.
Tourism has been hit in the picturesque Meghalaya due to the violence.
A number of hotels in Shillong, whom PTI spoke with, informed that there have been nervous queries from tourists and also last minute cancellations of rooms due to the current situation in the city. PTI JOP SNS ACB ASK RT RT
