15 people suffer minor injuries in tram accident at Universal Studios theme park near Los Angeles

15 people suffer minor injuries in tram accident at Universal Studios theme park near Los Angeles More than a dozen people suffered minor injuries when a tram used for tours crashed into a railing at Universal Studios Hollywood near Los Angeles, authorities and the company said. Los Angeles County Fire Department units responded shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday to the theme park in Universal City, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) northwest of downtown LA, the agency said in a social media post. A Universal Studios Hollywood spokesperson confirmed in an email to The Associated Press that there were multiple minor injuries but didn't provide details on the accident. The fire department said 15 people were transported to hospitals with minor injuries. Sheriff's Lt. Maria Abal said the four-car tram used for movie studio backlot tours might have experienced an issue with its brakes. The California Highway Patrol will lead the investigation, the fire department said. The tram circuit, called the World-Famous Studio Tour, offers a glimpse behind the scenes of Universal movies including Jaws and Jordan Peele's Nope. The theme park will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the tour starting Friday.(AP) RUP RUP

UK lawmaker won't run again after allegations of late night call for funds to pay off ''bad people''

UK lawmaker won't run again after allegations of late night call for funds to pay off ''bad people'' A British lawmaker who allegedly used campaign funds to pay off people who were holding him hostage said Sunday that he wouldn't seek reelection after the governing Conservative Party found his behaviour fell below the standard expected of members of Parliament. Mark Menzies' downfall is the latest in a series of scandals to hit the Conservatives, undermining support for a party that has been in power for the past 14 years as it prepares for a general election later this year. The Times of London recently reported that Menzies called a 78-year-old aide at 3 am in December asking for funds to pay off bad people who had locked him in an apartment and were demanding money for his release. Menzies' office manager ultimately paid 6,500 pounds (USD 8,100) from her personal bank account, which was reimbursed from funds donated by political backers, the newspaper said. Menzies, who denies the allegations, has represented the seat of Fylde in northwest England since 2010. Due to the pressures on myself and my elderly mother, I have decided to resign from the Conservative Party and will not stand at the forthcoming general election,'' he said. This has been a very difficult week for me, and I request that my family's privacy is respected. Menzies' announcement came after the Conservatives announced the findings of an internal investigation into the matter. The inquiry concluded that the payment had been authorized by two members of a local donors group that sits outside the Conservative Party, and therefore Menzies hadn't misused party funds. However, we do believe that there has been a pattern of behaviour that falls below the standards expected of MPs and individuals looking after donations to local campaign funds which lie outside the direct jurisdiction of the Conservative Party, the party said. The opposition Labour Party has called for a police investigation into the matter. The Conservatives said they would share information with police if they decide to investigate. The Conservatives have been in power since 2010, but they are trailing in opinion polls amid crumbling public services, high prices that are squeezing consumers and the corrosive effect of ethics scandals. Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who led the party to a landslide victory in 2019, resigned from the House of Commons after an investigation found that he deliberately misled Parliament about parties held at his Downing Street offices during lockdowns imposed to control the spread of COVID-19. Other scandals include a lawmaker who was caught looking at porn in the House of Commons, another who reportedly offered to lobby on behalf of gambling firms and another alleged to have drunkenly groped strangers at a private club in London. But ethical questions are also being asked of opposition politicians as the country prepares for an election that must be called by the end of this year. Conservatives accuse Labour's deputy leader, Angela Rayner, of dodging taxes on the sale of a house sale years ago by falsely claiming it was her primary residence. Police say they are investigating. Rayner denies wrongdoing and hasn't been suspended by her party.

Priyanka alleges BJPs plan to change the Constitution, urge people to vote for change

RAIPUR: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi alleged on Sunday that the Modi-led BJP government at the Centre has intentions to amend the Indian Constitution, thus undermining the rights guaranteed to the people. Speaking at an election rally in Balod, she accused BJP leaders of making grandiose promises and engaging in lofty rhetoric while sidestepping the concerns of the people. Many BJP leaders and ministers are openly stating in their campaigns that if their party achieves a Lok Sabha majority of 400 seats, they will amend the Constitution. Although PM Modi denies it, this appears to be their strategy. Otherwise, how could BJP leaders openly discuss altering the Constitution without presumed consent from Modi ji? The truth is, they can't be trusted anymore. Once they secure the numbers, they will likely proceed with altering the Constitution, she cautioned, expressing concern that such actions would strip away people's rights and dignity. BJP-ruled Centre is fascist, racist and oppressive government: Priyanka Gandhi Priyanka urged voters to exercise their franchise wisely, emphasizing that they have the power to change the government if it fails to meet their expectations. There is an urgent need for change. Otherwise, if the BJP returns to power for another five years, the country's future becomes uncertain. We may witness changes in the Constitution, restrictions on rights, increased inflation, unemployment, and challenges faced by citizens, while big industrialists gain more influence and leaders become more authoritarian, she asserted. Highlighting the achievements of the previous Congress government in Chhattisgarh, she criticized the new BJP administration for discontinuing welfare schemes initiated by the previous Bhupesh Baghel-led government. Priyanka also took a swipe at the PM, questioning why Modi ji, who is seen as influential on the global stage, hasn't effectively addressed domestic issues like unemployment and inflation. This indicates that his projection of power is superficial, and there may be issues with his intentions, she alleged. Drawing a parallel between PM Modi and Indira Gandhi, she praised the former Prime Minister for her patient approach in addressing people's concerns and ensuring their rights. Indiraji continues to hold a special place in your hearts because she didn't indulge in political theatrics. People need to deeply reflect on the current state of affairs, she urged. Priyanka criticized the BJP's electoral bonds scheme, alleging that it has exposed corrupt practices, particularly after the Supreme Court's intervention. Modiji labels opposition leaders as corrupt, files cases against them, and puts them in jail. However, when corrupt leaders from other parties join the BJP, all investigations and cases are conveniently dropped, she claimed.

BJP Deceived All Sections of People by Making False Promises: Kavya

Warangal: The BJP which has been in power for the past 10 years at the Centre has done nothing for the development of Telangana state and to the Warangal district. Only by provoking the people in the name of castes and religions, the BJP is trying to create disputes among the people and thus gain mileage politically, alleged Congress Warangal MP candidate Kadiam Kavya. Accompanied by the Warangal West MLA Naini Rajendar Reddy and Wardhannapet MLA K.R. Nagaraju, Kavya participated in the morning walk with locals as part of the poll campaign in the early morning here at JNS ground in Hanamkonda on Sunday. She interacted with players and walkers on the ground and played cricket, badminton, and boxing along with them. Later, speaking on the occasion, Kavya said that under the leadership of Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy within 100 days, the Congress government fulfilled five guarantees out of six which it made to the people before going to assembly elections. Whereas, the BJP government which has been in power for the last 10 years deceived all sections of people by making false promises. It encouraged hatred among the people and tried to divide them in the name of caste and religion. The time has come to teach the Modi-led BJP government a fitting lesson to dethrone him from power and to make AICC leader Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister who spread peace and harmony by taking padayatras from North to South and West to East in the country. Kavya appealed to the people to vote for the Congress for the development to take place in the erstwhile Warangal district and teach both the BJP and BRS parties a fitting lesson.

Uddhav Thackeray will top survey about most worthless people in Maharashtra: Bawankule

Uddhav Thackeray will top survey about most worthless people in Maharashtra: Bawankule Maharashtra BJP president Chandrashekhar Bawankule on Sunday hit back at Uddhav Thackeray, saying if a survey is conducted about the most worthless people in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena (UBT) chief would top the list. The BJP leaders comment has come in the wake of the allegation made by Uddhav Thackeray that the then chief minister Devendra Fadnavis told him in 2019 that he would groom his son Aaditya Thackeray as the next CM of Maharashtra as part of the power-sharing agreement between their parties. Reacting to the claim, Fadnavis, current deputy chief minister in the Mahayuti government of the BJP, Shiv Sena and NCP, on Saturday said Uddhav Thackeray had ''lost his mind''. Talking to the media, Bawankule said, ''If you surveyed people asking them about the most worthless people in Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray would top the list. His popularity is on the decline. Nobody is willing to hold his rallies, and people are not turning up.'' He said Uddhav Thackeray knew he would have to sit at home after the general elections. Taking a potshot at Aaditya, the BJP leader, ''How does he deserve to become a chief minister? He doesnt even deserve to be a minister. Has he ever helped anyone get a ration card or an Aadhaar card? Uddhav Thackeray's 18 candidates could win the 2019 Lok Sabha elections because of Prime Minister Narendra Modis image and popularity.'' Uddhav Thackeray lost his political support after he joined hands with NCP (SP) supremo Sharad Pawar and the Congress, he said. Bawankule further claimed that Aaditya had accidentally become an MLA from a constituency as there was a positive wave at that time.

Congress is history, new opposition of clean people will emerge says UP Dy CM Maurya

Congress is history, new opposition of clean people will emerge says UP Dy CM Maurya Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday slammed opposition and said that the challenge named Congress used to be there in history, not at present and in their place, a new opposition consisting of clean people will emerge. The challenge of the name Congress used to be there in history, but not at present. In their place will come a new opposition consisting of clean people. Akhilesh Yadav has scored the boundary of defeats. He lost in 2014, 2017, 2019 and 2022. Now he will also hit six of defeats when he loses in 2024 and 2027. Even after losing so many times, he is still fighting, I admire his courage. People are now busy eliminating the Samajwadi Party and Congress has no importance left in Uttar Pradesh, he said. Further, speaking on the INDIA bloc's 'Ulgulan Rally', Maurya said all the opposition parties do not have anything to show in comparison with the works of the BJP. INDIA alliance started from Karnataka and by the time it reached Mumbai it remained half. Now whatever rally they hold, the BJP government has done such a good job that the opposition is not able to get space. Once upon a time, everyone would have come together against Congress and today the entire opposition has come together against BJP but still cannot stop our victory. The big targets set for 2024-2029 are our strength. Youth power, women power, and farmers are our strength, UP Deputy CM said. Exuding confidence in winning the Lok Sabha elections, Keshav Prasad Maurya said, BJP and our allies will win eight seats in the first phase with a huge margin. Preparations for the second and third phases are going on in full swing and we are confident that BJP will win 80 seats in 2024. Eight seats in western Uttar Pradesh, including Kairana, Muzaffarnagar, Bijnor, Nagina, Moradabad, Rampur, and Saharanpur, went to polls in the first phase of the general elections on Friday. The most populous state, which sends the most members to the Lower House of Parliament, at 80, will poll across all seven phases. In the 2019 elections, turning the arithmetic of the SP-BSP 'Mahagatbandhan' in Uttar Pradesh upside down, the BJP and its ally Apna Dal (S) won 64 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats. The partners in the alliance, Akhilesh Yadav's SP and Mayawati's BSP, could only muster 15 seats. (ANI)

People like me... my karma bhoomi has now become my naadu, says Shashi Tharoor

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Shashi Tharoors fourth electoral outing in Thiruvananthapuram appears to be the toughest one he has faced so far. Though said to be a triangular contest, the incumbent Congress MP views it as a prestige battle between him and NDA candidate Rajeev Chandrasekhar. Frankly, it is the BJPs strongest seat in Kerala, Tharoor recently told the media. We are also batting with equal vehemence and confidence. Tharoor, however, does not display any sign of anxiety as we join him in one of his campaign trails. Clad in a bright magenta kurta, he begins the day praying at the Sree Narayana Guru Mandiram, and paying tributes to the statues of Mahatma Ayyankali and Chattambi Swami all in and around Gowreesapattom, which is part of the Vattiyoorkavu assembly segment. He reaches a bit late at Mulavana Junction, where former Congress state president V M Sudheeran, who hails from the area, launches the first campaign meet of the day. As Tharoor ascends the makeshift stage, many passers-by and motorists halt to catch a glimpse of the UDFs global citizen. Supporters line up to drape him in handloom shawls and tricolour stoles around his shoulders In his speech, Tharoor assails the BJP, accusing the party of creating divisions in society. Besides exhorting people to back the Congress, Tharoor also highlights the importance of the INDIA bloc at the national level. Tharoors makeshift campaign vehicle is well-equipped to beat the heat two fans and an air cooler. As the motorcade proceeds, Tharoor fastens his seatbelt and adjusts the seat height so as to get a clear view of people on the roadside. Fervently waving at supporters, mostly youngsters and women, Tharoor notes that there are hardly six days left for the polls and recalls Parkinsons Law. It is the old adage that work expands to fill the time allotted for its completion. I have been doing everything possible within the seven-week campaign period, he tells TNIE as he waves at a group of young women in front of a ladies hostel at Ambalamukku. I need votes from all generations. However, it is true that the youth express excitement on seeing me. Everything I do is, ultimately, for the next generation. They see hope when they see me. Tharoor nonchalantly dismisses murmurs about him facing anti-incumbency. Is there a case of familiarity breeding contempt? People who know me like me, he replies. I get this feeling that they like me. We can see the youth and women standing outside their homes and waving at me. The menfolk must be at work. I have contested in three elections. I feel this one, too, is coming my way. Thiruvananthapuram used to be my karma bhoomi (land of action) , but now it has become my naadu (hometown). Later, while attending a brief corner meeting at Brindavan Housing Colony in Pattom, a group of first-time voters throngs him. City residents Jisha and Gadha say they are excited about voting for Tharoor. Their friends, Shwetha from Bengaluru and Rajat Subham Roy from Kolkata, who are here for National Eligibility Test coaching also join the huddle. Unlike in West Bengal, the candidates in Kerala are warm and approachable, says Rajat, who has been in Thiruvananthapuram for eight months. However, there we have more door-to-door campaigning. The main issue we face in our colony here is the shortage of drinking water. The candidates should take it up. Tharoor has a brief chat with the youngsters, before rushing back to his motorcade. And, as he boards the vehicle, he points to the message pasted on its side: INDIA will win, we will win.

Vivekananda Foundation: A beacon of hope for people in need

KADAPA: In a world often marred by self-interest, there are individuals like P Ramatulsi, who shine brightly with their dedication in serving humanity. The 30-year-old woman has become an integral part of society, embodying the ethos of love, dedication and service. Standing alongside the marginalised, Ramatulsi serves as a pillar of support through her involvement with the Vivekananda Foundation. Established by her husband, Papijenni Ramakrishna Reddy, in 2010, the foundation has been a beacon of hope for countless individuals in need. Despite her young age, Ramatulsis contributions to society are commendable. She devotes her time not only to conduct social service programmes, but also to organise motivational classes for female students. Recognising the importance of education, the foundation provides exam kits to Class X students, ensuring they have the necessary tools to excel academically.

Bhuvaneswari, Brahmani campaign to garner peoples support for TDP

VIJAYAWADA: Nara Bhuvaneswari and Brahmani are actively taking part in campaigning in Kuppam and Mangalagiri on behalf of their husbands Telugu Desam supremo N Chandrababu Naidu and national general secretary Nara Lokesh respectively. After filing nomination papers on behalf of Naidu on Friday, Bhuavaneswari canvassed in Kuppam. Similarly, Brahmani toured in the Mangalagiri Assembly constituency in support of Lokesh on Saturday. Participating in the birthday celebrations of Naidu along with women in Kuppam, Bhuvaneswari said, For Chandrababu Naidu the State and its people come first, everything else comes later. She also interacted with the women of the minority community, explained to them about the vision of the TDP for empowerment of women and assured them of their bright future under leadership of Naidu. Alleging that the YSRC has no respect for women, Bhuvaneswari recalled the incident where a YSRC leader reportedly pulled off a womans burqa and molested her in Nandikotkur on the Ramzan day. It is shocking how the YSRC government hasnt been able to appoint teachers for Urdu in schools for minority children. Around 80% of the Wakf Board lands have been occupied by the government, Bhuvaneswari alleged. Meanwhile, Brahmani during her interaction with women in Mangalagiri, explained the salient features of the TDP manifesto and appealed to them to give their mandate to Lokesh and Guntur MP candidate Pemmasani Chandrasekhar in the coming elections.

58 die after boat carrying 300 people to funeral capsizes in Central Africa

At least 58 people going to a funeral died after their overloaded river boat capsized in the Central African Republic's capital Bangui, the head of civil protection said on Saturday. We were able to extract 58 lifeless bodies, Thomas Djimasse told Radio Guira.We don't know the total number of people who are underwater. According to witnesses and videos on social media, the wooden boat was carrying more than 300 people -- some standing and others perched on wooden structures -- when it sank on the Mpoko river on Friday. The vessel was heading to the funeral of a village chief in Makolo, some 45 kilometres (28 miles) from Bangui, but got into difficulty shortly after setting off from the pier. Rescue services arrived 40 minutes after the disaster. The government did not respond on Saturday but in a speech recorded on Friday and broadcast a day later, government spokesman Maxime Balalou had reported a provisional toll of at least 30 dead. The government sent its condolences to the bereaved families, he said, announcing the opening of an investigation and the setting up of a support system for families of the victims. Maurice Kapenya, who was following the boat in a canoe because there was no space on board, said his own sister was among the bodies of the victims he had recovered. He was helped by local fisherman and residents. Motorbike taxis meanwhile evacuated some of the injured. Driver Francis Maka told AFP he had aken more than 10 people to the community hospital... free of charge, in the face of the tragedy. With civil protection teams no longer on the scene Saturday, desperate families searching for missing loved ones near the river helped canoe operators they had hired, an AFP journalist observed. Several opposition parties expressed solidarity with the families and called for national mourning. Unrest and poverty The Central African Republic is ranked by the United Nations as the second least-developed country in the world. A civil war has plagued the former French colony since a Muslim-dominated armed coalition called the Seleka ousted former president Francois Bozize in 2013. The conflict lost intensity from 2018 but the country still suffers bouts of violence by rebel groups or over its resources, which include gold and diamonds. French intervention and deployment of UN peacekeepers paved the way for elections in 2016, which President Faustin Archange Touadera won. Two years later, Touadera brought in fighters from Russia's Wagner mercenary group to help train his armed forces. The country still suffers bouts of violence by rebel groups or over its resources, which include gold and diamonds. In 2020, CAR brought in more Russian operatives as rebel groups advanced on the capital and repelled a siege of Bangui. However, some areas of the country remain outside government control.

Hyderabad : BJP OBC Morcha president Dr K. Laxman asked why Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy was losing confidence in his MLAs and what made him to announce that he knews all the means to prevent defections from his party. Addressing a press conference, Dr Laxman said that Revanth Reddy earlier claimed that the Congress would win 14 Lok Sabha seats and the outcome of the poll as a referendum on his 100-day rule. Fearing a large-scale debacle, Revanth Reddy was playing a conspiracy card to lure voters, he said. KCR and KTR are frustrated after losing power. They are still living in a trance. The corrupt deeds of BRS leaders are coming out one after another as a tele-serial, Dr Laxman said. the people were not ready to trust them even if BRS president K. Chandrashekar Rao conducted a state-wide yatra on his knees.

CM Revanth: TG People Sent KCR Home, BRS Car Good Enough to Sell as Scrap

Hyderabad: Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy said that people of Telangana had sent kedi (conman), referring to BRS president K. Chandrashekar Rao home in the Assembly polls and the party would meet the same fate in the Lok Sabha elections. Revanth Reddy said that after the Assembly polls, the car (BRS symbol) did not go to the shed for repairs, as claimed by Chandrashekar Rao and his son and party working president K.T. Rama Rao. Instead, the engine was damaged beyond repair. The car is only good enough to be sold as scrap, he said, adding that the Congress government would remain in power for next 10 years. Revanth Reddy was speaking at the rally of Congress Medak Lok Sabha candidate Neelam Madhu, accompanied by ministers Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy, Damodar Rajanarasimha, Konda Surekha and party leaders. Coming down heavily on the BJP and the BRS, which held the Medak Lok Sabha seat for 25 years, Revanth Reddy said, Except for the industries set up by the Congress government of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the 1980s while she was Medak MP, nothing came to Medak in the last 25 years. The people of Medak elected MPs of the BJP from 1998 to 2004 and BRS from 2004 to 2024. Neither any major development works were taken up nor any major industries brought in. Despite this, the BRS and the BJP are seeking votes shamelessly. I appeal to the voters to punish them for neglecting the district. He urged the voters to give one opportunity to the Congress this time for the all-round development of the constituency. He said Medak had elected Indira Gandhi as MP when the Congress was in crisis and urged them to strengthen the party again The Congress is in power in the state. The Congress-led government will come to power at the Centre. Both the Centre and state government will work together and put the development of Medak on the fast track. It's a golden opportunity for the people to develop Medak. Revanth Reddy alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chandrashekar Rao were conspiring to topple the state government and warned them against it. Revanth Reddy sought to know whether the BJP Medak Lok Sabha candidate M. Raghunandhan Rao did any development work when he was Dubbak MLA for three years. How can Raghunandhan Rao win the Lok Sabha election from Medak when he lost badly from Dubbak in December, he asked. Revanth Reddy swore on the name of the Sri Vana Durga Bhavani Temple in Edupayala in Medak that he would waive crop loans up to `2 lakh before August 15. Lashing out at BRS Medak Lok Sabha candidate P. Venkatrami Reddy, Revanth Reddy said, Venkatrami Reddy worked as collector in Medak district and joined BRS two years ago. As collector, he forcibly acquired agriculture lands of poor farmers and Dalits by using the police for Mallannasagar and Kondapochammasagar on the directions of Chandrashekar Rao and denied them compensation. It's time for people of Medak to avenge his excesses.

Not here to rule, but serve...: PM Modi says LS polls an 'initiative' of people, flays Cong for losing 'golden opportunity'

Not here to rule, but serve...: PM Modi says LS polls an 'initiative' of people, flays Cong for losing 'golden opportunity' Asserting that he was a 'sevak' (one who serves people) and not a ruler, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday said he was not the kind who 'enjoys' his powers and position while occupying the country's most coveted chair. In an interview with the Asianet News Network, Prime Minister Modi, who is bidding for a third term in office and set a target of '400 paar' (400-plus seats) for the BJP-led NDA, said he was going to the people with 'guarantees'. I would put it this way: the elections in 2014 were about hope. People voted in the hope of change, and I took office in the hope of fulfilling the promises that I made to them. I am not here to rule, but serve. I am not in favour of enjoying the perks and powers that come with the job. I try to work hard, even more than a common citizen would, in a bid to fulfil the people's aspirations. However, if 2014 was about hope, then 2019 was about belief. With the belief that the people were with me, I was convinced that we were heading in the right direction. In 2024, drawing on the experience of having served the people for two terms, I am going to the people with guarantees, PM Modi said. On his slogan of '400 paar' for the NDA, going into the Lok Sabha elections, a feat achieved only once in India's history--by the Congress under Rajiv Gandhi in 1984, PM Modi said that the country needs a stable government at the Centre to maximise its development potential. In a democracy, every political party should aspire to contest elections to earn people's faith. The laws or policies that they make, if elected, should align with the vision to take the country forward. I believe it isn't good for our democracy if a party, which is power, doesn't nurture such aspirations. This is the need of a democracy, PM Modi said. He added that he or his party was not contesting the 2024 elections, rather, it was an initiative launched and carried forward by the people of the country. The world has witnessed many unstable governments in India. Such governments did more harm to the country than good. The world's view of India did not amount to anything. However, over the last ten years, the people have seen what a stable government can achieve. It is not Modi who is contesting the general elections, it is the BJP. These elections are nothing but an initiative that the people are carrying forward, PM Modi added. Hitting out at the Congress, he said that the grand old party, which ruled the country for the most time since independence, missed out on a golden opportunity to serve people, who were on the margins of society and needed handholding and welfare. The BJP came to power five or six decades after an uninterrupted Congress rule in the country. Under the Congress rule, there was no such thing as an Opposition. Back in the day, even the media lacked the freedom and spine to highlight these things. They (Congress) ruled the roost, and even the people were with them. Such was the spirit and enthusiasm of the people back in the day that the Congress could have achieved virtually anything they wished for the country. However, they wasted a golden opportunity and faded away gradually. Such was the state of affairs in the country when the people gave us a chance to serve them. However, even then, there were those who said I knew nothing of governance, the country or world affairs, PM Modi said. On claims that the Centre was misusing agencies at its disposal to hound and harass Opposition leaders, Prime Minister Modi said, If we want to root out corruption from the country, then we should allow our institutions to work towards the purposes that they were founded for.

Will continue to work for welfare of people, says former Foreign Secretary Shringla

NEW DELHI: Former Foreign Secretary and G20 Chief Coordinator Harsh Vardhan Shringla is not in the race for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, but continues to work on the ground in Darjeeling, Siliguri and neighbouring areas. My objective is to serve the people here and help them in whatever possible way from channelising the youth who are seeking employment, to working for the welfare of the elderly. I am working for the Prime Minister post retirement and reaching out to common people through the Darjeeling Welfare Society which was established nearly a decade back, Shringla told The New Indian Express . Darjeeling and the Siliguri corridor area are strategic development initiatives which have suffered due to gaps in Centre-state coordination. The Siliguri corridor abuts Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and China and connects India to South East Asia and East Asia through Myanmar. So it is of strategic significance. Besides, there is a lot that needs to be done for the local people here, he added. The locals of Darjeeling and Siliguri have been appreciative of his work in the area and were actually hoping to see him contest in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The locals are very appreciative of him, specially after he organised G20 events here. He has also helped the young people get jobs in the area, Sreejana C Gurung, an educationist from Mirik, told TNIE. In a job fair organised in the area a few months back, which Shringla had facilitated, nearly 270 youth were offered jobs. Meanwhile, talking about the Siliguri corridor, Shringla said this part of the country was in a position to benefit from PM Modis focus on transforming the North East. The area is now in a position where it can leverage the conjuction of national and international initiatives. Siliguri, for instance, is where the National Highways Authority of Indias Golden Quadrilateral will connect to the Asian Highway network and future BIMSTEC land connectivity initiatives, Shringla added. The Siliguri-Bagdogra is at a strategic location near Nepal and Bhutan borders and fosters cross-border trade while its fertile plains support a thriving agricultural sector. Meanwhile, even though Shringla isnt contesting the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, there is talk of him being offered a position of significance once the electoral process is over.

Big and powerful people in India, abroad have joined hands to oust me from power, claims PM Modi

Alleging foreign influence in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Saturday, claimed that several big and powerful people, both domestically and internationally, have joined hands to oust him from office. Addressing a mega public meeting in Karnataka's Chikkaballapura, Modi said: Mothers and sisters have come in a large number here. Your struggle and the challenges you face to nurture your family, Modi has seen this in his house. These days, big and powerful people in the country and abroad have united to remove Modi. But, because of Nari Shakti and Maatru Shakti's blessings and Suraksha kavach (safety armour), Modi is able to move on fighting challenges, the prime minister continued. Big and strong people in country, abroad have united to remove him, says PM Modi at Karnataka rally Press Trust of India (@PTI_News) April 20, 2024 Serving mothers, sisters and daughters and protecting them is Modi's priority, he said, listing out measures taken by his government for women's welfare in ten years, like supporting their self-help groups and creating 'Lakhpati Didis'. Modi also lashed out at Congress and the INDIA bloc, claiming that the opposition alliance has no leader or vision for the future and that their history is ridden with scams. The INDI alliance does not even have a leader at present, nor do they have any vision for future and their history is one of scams, which is why people are saying abki baar Modi Sarkar, he said. The prime minister claimed the first phase of voting for Lok Sabha on Friday has gone in favour of the NDA and 'Viksit Bharat'. Praising JD(S) patriarch and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, who shared the stage with him, for his energy and commitment at the age of 90, Modi said he too draws inspiration from him. I would like to extend my gratitude to HD Deve Gowda for his enthusiasm and proactiveness. A young man like me gets a lot of inspiration from him... His commitment towards Karnataka, the pain in his heart for the plight of Karnataka today and the 'josh' in his voice are the testimony for Karnataka's bright future, Modi said, as he thanked Gowda for his lessings. The JD(S) joined the NDA in September last year. Former Minister K Sudhakar is the BJP candidate from Chikkaballapur, while its alliance partner JD(S) has fielded M Mallesh Babu from the neighbouring Kolar. Congress has fielded MS Raksha Ramaiah, son of former minister MR Seetharam in Chikkaballapur and K V Gowtham, in Kolar. Karnataka is going to the polls in two phases. While 14 Lok Sabha segments in the southern parts of the state will vote on April 26, the remaining 14 constituencies in the northern parts will vote in the second phase on May 7.
