Names of Sudarshan, Pocharam, Madanmohan surface for ministerial berths

Nizamabad: Speculations are on as to who all would be included as new ministers amid talk of a likely expansion of the Telangana state cabinet in the near future. Congress rank and file in undivided Nizamabad district are in an eager wait. Senior MLA, P Sudarshan Reddy from Bodhan assembly constituency is front- runner for a ministerial berth. However, the recently joined Banswada MLA Pocharam Srinivas Reddys name is also doing rounds for a berth in the state cabinet. Yellareddy MLA Madanmohan Rao is also a strong contender. Undivided Nizamabad district had two ministerial berths in every government in united Andhra Pradesh. After formation of the Telangana state, only one minister post was allotted for this region. Pocharam Srinivas Reddy served as minister in the first term of the TRS government, and Vemula Prashanth Reddy in the second term of the (BRS) government. When the Congress formed the government this time, the undivided Nizamabad district did not get a minister. Since there are four Reddy nominees including chief minister A Revanth Reddy in the state cabinet, the Congress high command did not allow induction of another Reddy as minister. Hence, Sudarshan Reddy failed to get the minister post. According to Congress sources, MLA Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy will be inducted into the cabinet when an expansion takes place. However, Yellareddy MLA Madanmohan Rao is also seeking a cabinet berth. Rao has close rapport with the Congress high command. Also, based on social equations, he may get a chance. The Congress party is encouraging new faces and youths in the government. Madanmohan Rao's followers are hopeful that he will get a chance. Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, a Congress leader said a cabinet expansion is not possible immediately. The oath-taking ceremony for the Telangana Congress MPs would take place in New Delhi and there were other preoccupations for the high command. So, the cabinet expansion in Telangana would not take place now, he said. The high command is strictly against any over-representation to any community in the state cabinet, he said.

Sanjaya Baru | The pursuit of learning in Nalandas homeland

It is ironic that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was extolling the virtues of Asias oldest centre of higher learning at Nalanda in Bihar in the same week when a controversy around the national testing of the educational attainments of students was engaging nationwide attention. Nalanda University did not become world famous overnight. It took long years of scholarship of learned men and women for the institution to earn its reputation. Learned men from different cities who desire to acquire renown in discussion, come here in multitudes to settle their doubts, and then the streams of their wisdom spread far and wide, wrote the Chinese Buddhist monk Hieun Tsang after his mid-7th century visit. By then Nalanda was already at least a 100-year-old institution, if not more. How many Indian universities set up in the 20th century have been able to protect their reputation into the 21st? Nalanda is a question and a reminder. The Indian civilisation, with all its faults and inequalities, was a knowledge-based civilisation, like any other great civilisation. It respected scholarship and the flights of imagination. On his visit last week to the Nalanda University campus, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lamented its destruction. The point is moot that the person responsible for Nalandas destruction was a Muslim invader. In the same week, a movie aimed at damaging the already blemished reputation of contemporary Indias best-ranked university was released in cinema halls. Titled Jahangir National University , the movie has been pitched as an attack on Jawaharlal Nehru University, a public university that the Union education ministrys own ranking places it at the top of Indian universities. Of what use is the lament of past tragedies when new ones occur every day and we learn so little from the experience of the past? There is, however, no point in engaging in the usual political blame game. No political party, no PM, no CM, no minister for education at the Centre or in the states can be absolved of the responsibility for the sorry state of public universities today. Nor, indeed, can they be pardoned for presiding over the extensive privatisation of education at all levels. None other than the political, business and intellectual elite of the country have demonstrated their lack of pride in the countrys educational system. Just look at how many of them take pride in the fact that their children have studied or are studying overseas. Till a couple of decades ago, most students going overseas went for post-graduate education. Today they also do for under-graduate and even high school education. The Covid-19 lockdown and suspension of cross-border travel brought the extent of such elite dependence on overseas education to the fore. Some attribute the rise in numbers to the growing prosperity of the Indian middle class. Perhaps so. However, what is striking is that even as more Indian students go overseas, fewer foreign students are coming to India. According to data collected by the ministry of external affairs, the number of Indian students studying overseas was estimated to be 13,24,954 in 2022. This does not include the 20,000 students forced to return home that year from Ukraine after the outbreak of war with Russia. The MEA data also probably underestimates the number of Indian students studying in China, at 6,000, since many who returned home after the Covid-19 outbreak did not go back. Given news reports of increasing numbers of Indian students going overseas in the past year, one can safely presume that the number in 2024 would be upwards of 14 lakhs. By comparison, the number of foreign students studying in India was estimated to be 46,878 in 2022, according to the All-India Survey on Higher Education conducted by the Union ministry for human resources development. While most Indian students going overseas are concentrated in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UAE, most foreign students in India are nationals of Nepal and Afghanistan. Most foreign students studying in India are concentrated in four states: Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana and Delhi. There was a time when Indian universities attracted many students from Africa. The numbers have dwindled with many Africans headed to China. In 2019, before Covid-19, over 80,000 African students were studying in China compared to 25,000 in India. There may be any number of reasons why foreign students do not prefer Indian universities over campuses in China or elsewhere. We must reckon with the fact that we are not considered to be an attractive destination by comparison to others. There was a time when Western governments did not recognise Indian degrees. A medical graduate had to pass an examination administered overseas to be able to study and work abroad. The IITs succeeded in building a global reputation that enabled its products to secure easy admission into American universities. The same political system, under different political parties, that destroyed the credibility of public universities also allowed the growth of private institutions. These private institutions were able to cater to the elites and the wealthy, who then secured access to education and employment at home and overseas. As long as the two lived in non-intersecting worlds, few bothered about it. The Neet and NET scandal shows that when the two worlds began to intersect, the system unravelled. As long as different parts of India performed differently, the system was able to pull on. Large numbers of good students from backward states migrated to states that had a better system of education or where education could be bought with money. But then, it is easy to destroy the reputation of institutions that have been slowly and studiously built over the years. The Neet and NET controversy may have already damaged the reputation of the best Indian institutions if it is discovered that the recently exposed lapses have been long in occurring. There were good reasons why the architects of our Constitution kept certain areas of public policy within the realm of state governments and a few on the concurrent list. The federal structure was built with care. Recent attempts to weaken this structure have partly contributed to controversies such as the present one in the sphere of education. We are paying the price for over-centralisation.

39 Years On: Remembering the 1985 Kanishka Bombing Tragedy

39 Years On: Remembering the 1985 Kanishka Bombing Tragedy In a poignant commemoration, Indian missions in Canada's Ottawa and Toronto marked the 39th anniversary of the devastating 1985 Kanishka bombing, a tragic episode in civil aviation history that claimed 329 lives, including 86 children. High Commissioner Sanjay Kumar Verma paid homage to the victims, underscoring the urgent need for global unity in tackling terrorism. 'Human lives are more important than political gains,' Verma stated during the solemn event attended by family members, Canadian officials, and over 150 Indo-Canadian community members. The Montreal-New Delhi Air India Flight 182 was mercilessly blown up by Sikh militants, a grim reminder that effective international collaboration is the only way to counteract such heinous acts of terror.

New Delhi: At the scheduled re-test for the medical eligibility-cum-entrance test, according to National Testing Agency (NTA) officials, 48 per cent of the 1,563 students who were awarded grace marks did not appear at the seven centres across the country. Officials reported that only 813 students appeared for the retest, while 750 did not turn up. The NTA also debarred 17 candidates who had appeared for the exam on May 5 at centres in Bihar. Previously, the agency had debarred 63 candidates for adopting unfair means during the exam. On Saturday, an additional 30 candidates from Godhra, Gujarat, were also debarred. Meanwhile, the NTA also said that its website and all its other web portals are fully secure Reacting to reports that its website has been compromised, a senior officer said, NTA website and all its web portals are fully secure. Any information that they have been compromised and hacked is wrong and misleading. It is to be noted that besides NEET-UG, three other exams UGC NET, CSIR-UGC NET, and NEET-PG have also faced controversy. The UGC NET was cancelled by the government a day after the exam, while the CSIR-UGC NET and NEET-PG exams have been postponed.

Revanths Delhi Tour Triggers Speculations on Cabinet Expansion

Hyderabad : The two-day Delhi tour of Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy triggered speculation of a Cabinet expansion in Telangana in July. The Chief Minister, who would attend the oath-taking ceremony of newly-elected Lok Sabha members, is expected to discuss the issue of the Cabinet expansion with the Congress high command. Revanth Reddy is understood to be keen on inducting senior MLAs into the Cabinet in July. After the Congress came to power in December, a 12-member Cabinet, including the Chief Minister, was sworn-in. As per Constitutional norms, the Telangana Cabinet cannot have more than 18 ministers, including the Chief Minister -- giving an opportunity to induct six more ministers into the Cabinet. Currently, the erstwhile composite district of Khammam has the higher representation with three ministers Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy and Tumala Nageshwar Rao representing it. Erstwhile composite districts of Nalgonda, Warangal and Karimnagar districts have representation of two ministers. Nalgonda is represented by N Uttam Kumar Reddy and Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, Warangal is represented by Konda Surekha and Danasari Anasuya (Seethakka) and Karimnagar is represented by Ponnam Prabhakar and Duddilla Sridhar Babu. Erstwhile Medak district has the sole representation of Damodar Rajanarasimha, while there is no ministerial representative from Hyderabad, Rangareddy, Nizamabad and Adilabad districts. It was also speculated that P. Sudarshan Reddy, Balmoor Venkat (MLC), Adi Srinivas, Beerla Ilaiah, Komatireddy Rajgopal Reddy, Vakiti Srihari, Vejma Bojju, Premsagar Rao among others are in the race for the Cabinet berths.

Remembering Air India 182: 39 Years Since Kanishka Bombing

Remembering Air India 182: 39 Years Since Kanishka Bombing The Indian mission in Toronto commemorated the 39th anniversary of the tragic Kanishka bombing, marking one of the deadliest terror acts in aviation history. The disaster claimed 329 lives, including 86 children, aboard Air India Flight 182 in 1985. The Consulate General of India in Toronto posted on social media, ''Consul General @S_Nath_S laid a wreath at the Air India 182 memorial, Humber Park, Etobicoke in solemn remembrance of the 329 victims of the terrorist bombing of AI 182 on this day, 39 years ago.'' The post was accompanied by a photograph showing the tribute. Air India Flight 182, en route from Montreal to New Delhi, exploded 45 minutes before its scheduled landing at Londons Heathrow Airport on June 23, 1985, killing all aboard, most of whom were Canadians of Indian descent. The attack was attributed to Sikh militants, in retaliation for 'Operation Bluestar,' which aimed to remove militants from the Golden Temple in 1984. India's External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar also paid homage via social media, stating, ''Today marks the 39th anniversary of one of the worst acts of terrorism in history. My thoughts are with their families. The anniversary is a reminder why terrorism should never be tolerated.'' The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) confirmed on Friday that their investigation into the bombing remains ''active and ongoing,'' terming it one of the ''longest'' and ''most complex'' domestic terrorism probes. Assistant Commissioner David Teboul expressed condolences, stating the bombing resulted in the ''greatest terror-related loss of life involving and affecting Canadians'' in the country's history.

1985 Kanishka bombing one of worst acts of terrorism in history: Jaishankar

The 39th anniversary of the bombing of Air India flight Kanishka, which claimed 329 lives on June 23, 1985, was one of the worst acts of terrorism in history, External Affairs Minister Dr S. Jaishankar said. Today marks the 39th anniversary of one of the worst acts of terrorism in history. I pay my homage to the memory of the 329 victims of AI 182 Kanishka who were killed this day in 1985. My thoughts are with their families. The anniversary is a reminder why terrorism should never be tolerated, said Dr Jaishankar on Sunday. Dr Jaishankars statement follows India's recent emphasis on Canada being a safe haven for terrorists. India has expressed strong disapproval of the Canadian Parliament observing a moment of silence for Indias designated terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on June 18, a year after he was killed outside a gurdwara in Surrey, British Columbia. Nijjar had called for taking up arms against India. On June 23, 1985, a bomb exploded on Air India flight 182, killing all passengers on board. This was considered the worst act of aviation terrorism until the 9/11 attacks in the US. The flight had departed from Montral and was en route to Mumbai via London and New Delhi when the bomb exploded off the Irish coast. Two days ago, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) announced that investigations into the bombing remain active and ongoing even after nearly four decades. This has led to only one conviction - Inderjit Singh Reyat, convicted on charges of manslaughter for constructing the bomb. The other suspects, Ripudaman Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri, were cleared of all charges. The trial cost nearly $130 million and is the longest and most expensive in the history of Canada.

Shah Wants 50 Big Ponds in NE to Divert Flood Water

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced on Sunday a proposal to create at least 50 large ponds in the northeastern region to divert water from the Brahmaputra River. This is to tackle recurring floods and promote agriculture, irrigation, and tourism in the area. During a high-level review meeting on flood management preparedness for the monsoon season, Shah spoke about the need to adopt new technologies by all relevant agencies and the expansion of their flood management networks. He stressed the optimum use of satellite imagery provided by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for flood and water management. Additionally, he reviewed preparations to address Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs). During the meeting, Shah reviewed long-term measures for a comprehensive policy to mitigate the menace of floods across the country. He also assessed the action taken on decisions made during last year's meeting, with presentations from the IMD, CWC, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF). Shah appealed to all states and Union Territories to implement NDMA advisories for flood management promptly. He stressed the necessity of precautionary measures to prevent forest fires, including the regular removal of dry leaves, conducting mock drills with local residents and forest personnel, and analysing repeated incidents of forest fires. The home minister also directed the IMD to ensure timely dissemination of alerts regarding lightning strikes through SMS, TV, FM radio, and other media. Emphasising community coordination, he called for the integration of community awareness programmes run by various agencies to maximise their impact. Shah highlighted the need to upgrade the water level forecast system of rivers for better flood management. The recurring flooding of the Brahmaputra poses a significant challenge for Assam and the northeastern region, causing numerous casualties and inundating vast tracts of land each year. Shah directed the India Meteorological Department (IMD) and the Central Water Commission (CWC) to expedite the recalibration of all flood forecast equipment. He also instructed the concerned departments to conduct detailed studies of recent floods in Sikkim and Manipur and submit their findings to the Union Home Ministry. Further, Shah stressed on the need to ensure that floodgates of major dams are in good condition and that CWC flood monitoring centers meet India's requirements and international standards. He noted the severe impact of flash floods caused by glacial lake outbursts in Sikkim and Uttarakhand, which have resulted in numerous fatalities and significant damage in recent years. Shah also stressed the integration of natural drainage systems in road construction designs to prevent inundation during floods. He also underscored the importance of integrating weather, rainfall, and flood warning apps developed by various departments. The meeting was attended by Union jal shakti minister C.R. Paatil, minister of state for home Nityanand Rai, and top officials. They provided updates on the preparations for the current monsoon season and future action plans, addressing the frequent flooding in Bihar, Assam, and other eastern states, as well as the landslides and rain-related issues in Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Jammu and Kashmir.

NEET-PG: Students slam last-minute exam cancellation, say medical education is a mess

NEW DELHI: Travelling from Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh to take her NEET-PG exam in Jaipur, Seetha (name changed) received the devastating news just 10 hours before the prestigious exam that it had been cancelled. The 23-year-old, who had invested a year of hard work, is in deep shock. She cant speak. We are trying to motivate her. My parents are very concerned, said her brother, a doctor in Rajasthan. My cousin, also taking the NEET-PG exam in Kurnool, burst into tears upon hearing the postponement. He prepared for over a year, enduring sleepless nights and relying on sleeping pills. He is crushed, he said, on condition of anonymity. Shocked, disappointed, and depressed thats the condition of an estimated 2 lakh NEET-PG students who learned on Saturday night that the Sunday exam, an eligibility-cum-ranking examination for admission to various MD/MS and PG Diploma Courses, was cancelled for the third time this year. Centre postpones NEET-PG entrance exam amid row over paper leaks TNIE spoke to over a dozen aspirants, some working in hospitals and others jobless. The initial shock gave way to anger at the examination system, which failed to hold public examinations without malpractice or paper leaks, affecting the fate of lakhs of young students. Some learned about the cancellation at the exam centre, others through social media, and some via media reports. Responses varied from crying and getting drunk to avoiding calls from family, friends, and colleagues. Many took to social media to criticise the government and authorities for playing with the lives of young students and expressed the desire to leave the country. Many aspirants, frustrated by the NEET-UG fiasco, said the arbitrary cancellation of the PG exam shows that medical education in India is in a complete mess. As students considered suing the authorities for psychological and monetary damage, the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA) offered free psychiatric services to NEET-PG aspirants, highlighting the mental trauma many are suffering. 750 of 1,563 candidates skip NEET-UG re-test: NTA The government and the education and health ministry should compensate medical students and PG aspirants. No one is highlighting the mental state of the students. They are making a fool of us. Three exams have been postponed back to back. They have taken the education sector for a ride. They should be ashamed, said Dr Dhruv Chauhan, national council coordinator of the Indian Medical Association-Junior Doctors Network (IMA-JDN). The NEET-UG question paper was leaked while the NEET-PG, UGC-NET, and CSIR-NET exams were cancelled. The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBE) conducts the NEET-PG exam. Over 2 lakh MBBS graduates appeared for the computer-based exam for around 52,000 post-graduation seats nationwide. Students must study 20 subjects and attempt 200 MCQ questions. Neet not neat, mired in mess It is a double blow for Dr Sahifa Harem, a NEET-PG aspirant, whose brother, Shanawar Hussain, took NEET-UG. Dont know which is more shocking the UG controversy or the PG exam cancellation. She was looking forward to joining Apollo Hospital in Delhi in the paediatrics department on Monday a day after the scheduled exam. I was working in Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital but left last December to concentrate on my studies as the exam was initially to be held in March, then postponed to July, then June 23. And now again, there is no certainty when it will be held. At the moment, I am jobless. I dont think I will be able to join my new job due to this uncertainty about the exam date, said Harem, from Begusarai in Bihar. Authorities should understand our mental state. They should issue a public apology for causing us mental trauma. We couldnt even celebrate Eid with the family because of the exam and result stress, she said, adding that her mother has stalled her wedding plans because of the exams. CBI takes over probe into irregularities in NEET-UG; FIR registered; special teams formed Delhi-based Dr Jyoti Gupta said she is returning from Merrut, where her examination centre was. I reached Meerut a day before the exam and stayed in a hotel. Now, I am dejected. I dont know when I should start my studies again. This is so frustrating. Dr Akash Soni, who has been working as a medical officer in Singrauli Primary Health Centre in Madhya Pradesh for the past ten months, said he took leave from work and travelled overnight by train - a total of 700 km - to reach Bhopal centre. Many like me are working and had to take leave from work. It is so disheartening. Since COVID-19, we have been seeing this uncertainty. It is like students pursuing medical education have become guinea pigs for the authorities to experiment on. Doctors are already overburdened. By cancelling the exam three times this year, they are wasting the resources of this country. Its a huge loss to the nation that doctors serving the nation are suffering like this, said Dr Soni, also the Federation of All India Medical Association (FAIMA) Doctors Association Madhya Pradesh chairman. Initially thinking the news of the postponement was fake, Dr Shubham Anand Jha, a Junior Resident at the Lady Hardinge Hospital in the Psychology department, said he couldnt believe the authorities cancelled the exam at the last minute. How can they take the students lives so lightly? This is so disgraceful. My examination centre was in Meerut. I planned to travel with some other aspirants around 5 am. I know many aspirants who travelled 1,000 km to the exam centre. This is beyond shocking. After travelling all night to reach his examination centre in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, from Jaipur, a distance of over 450 km, Dr Sunreet Jakhar slept to get up fresh in the morning to take the exam. I was tired after the journey, so I went to sleep. When I reached the examination centre in the morning, I was shocked to see the notice of cancellation outside. I am no longer on social media to avoid distractions, so I didnt know. It is so stressful to go back to studies and prepare again. Similarly, Dr Vishal Bishnoi travelled over 500 km from Jaipur, Rajasthan, to Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. An intern in the paediatrics department at Jaipur National University, he travelled with his colleague Jitendra Sharma, whose centre was the same. We had reached the hotel and later found out that the exam had been postponed. It is such a huge disappointment. We are in disbelief. Some aspirants said on Telegram that the PG exam paper had been leaked and could be bought for Rs. 20-25 lakh, like the NEET-UG exam. As the news circulated, the NBE issued a notice on June 21, cautioning aspirants not to be misled by unscrupulous elements claiming to have accessed questions of the upcoming NEET-PG 2024. They said they had registered a police case. Buck stops at top echelons of Modi govt in NEET 'scam': Congress Dr Manish Jangra, founder of FAIMA, said that medical education in India has become a joke and is in crisis. We want to know on what basis NBE has cancelled the exam. They are answerable to the students, he said. We have come to know that many students are in depression. Many took flights, trains, buses, and cabs to travel to far-off examination centres and booked hotels. Some were even travelling to the centre when the news broke, he added. Dr Lakshya Mittal, who has been handling numerous calls from anxious aspirants, said that after the NEET-UG irregularities and paper leaks, there is no faith in the National Testing Agency (NTA), despite the governments move to remove the director general Subodh Kumar Singh and replace him with Pradeep Singh Kharola. Indias medical education has been destroyed. This abrupt change, following the NEET-UG scam, underscores a deeply troubling pattern in handling medical examinations and the overall medical education system in India, he said, adding that the Prime Ministers Office (PMO) should intervene and take strict action on the exam-conducting bodies. The entire education system is collapsing. He said he is more worried that Indias image would be tarnished. Many Indian doctors go abroad to study or work. Our doctors would find it difficult abroad after news of paper leaks and irregularities in medical exams. I fear they will be considered fake degree holders. Kerala-based Dr Cyriac Abby Philips, popularly known as TheLiverDoc on X (formerly Twitter), said that in his career as a medical professional, he had not seen anything like this. The most important postgraduate medical entrance exam in a medical student's life is cancelled 12 hours before by the government. Students have spent years and A LOT of money preparing for this. This is not only devastating for them; it's a mockery of the medical education system in India. Enjoy five more years of this terrible clownery. No one has destroyed this nation as much as the current authorities. Tell me why anyone would want to stay back here to serve a banana republic. Dreaming of a time when we can hold our heads high again. NEET & unclean

Why Mahtab chosen LS pro-tem speaker over BJP's Jigajinagi also in his 7th term, asks Jairam Ramesh

NEW DELHI: Amid a row over the appointment of pro-tem speaker of the Lok Sabha, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Sunday asked why BJP MP Bhartruhari Mahtab was chosen for the post over his party colleague Ramesh Chandappa Jigajinagi, who is also in his seventh consecutive term. The Congress has accused the government of destroying parliamentary norms by choosing seven-term BJP MP Bhartruhari Mahtab as pro-tem Speaker instead of eight-term Lok Sabha member Kodikunnil Suresh who should have got it as per the convention of naming the senior-most MP to the post. In a post on 'X' on Sunday, Ramesh said, Kodikunnil Suresh of the INC, who is in his eighth term, should have been Speaker Protem. But Bhartruhari Mahtab of the BJP has been appointed on the flimsy grounds that he has a greater claim because this is his seventh consecutive term. If this argument is adopted, then why has Ramesh Chandappa Jigajinagi, a BJP MP who is also in his seventh consecutive term, not been considered? Is it because he is a Dalit like Suresh? he asked. Kodikunnil Suresh of the INC, who is in his 8th term, should have been Speaker Protem.

If you are so concerned about the political career of Shri Kodikunnil Suresh, I would urge you to make him the Leader of the Opposition and the CM face of the UDF for the 2026 Kerala elections. Why stress so much for a temporary position? he said on 'X'.

Kejriwal moves SC against Delhi HC's stay on bail in excise policy case Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal has moved the Supreme Court against the Delhi High Court's stay on his bail in connection with the case on the alleged excise policy scam.

Kejriwal Takes Bail Battle to Supreme Court Amid Excise Scam Controversy

Kejriwal Takes Bail Battle to Supreme Court Amid Excise Scam Controversy Embattled Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has escalated his legal fight to the Supreme Court, challenging the Delhi High Court's interim stay on his bail in a money laundering case related to the alleged excise scam. One of Kejriwal's lawyers confirmed that they would seek an urgent hearing on Monday for the petition. The Delhi High Court delayed Kejriwal's release on Friday, post the trial court's bail grant on June 20. Kejriwal, who has been in Tihar jail since March 21, would have been released if not for the interim stay ordered by the high court. The high court had stated that the trial court's order would remain stayed pending further review, asking all parties to submit written statements by June 24, with the next hearing set for July 10. The court is reviewing the entire case record, issuing notice to Kejriwal in response to the Enforcement Directorate's plea against the trial court's order. Additional Solicitor General S. V. Raju described the trial courts decision as 'perverse' and 'biased,' arguing that the findings were based on irrelevant facts, and the ED was not given sufficient opportunity to present its case. Senior advocates Abhishek Singhvi and Vikram Chaudhari, representing Kejriwal, countered that the ED had ample time to argue and that the liberties protected under Article 21 of the Constitution seemed to be ignored by the agency. Raju claimed that Section 45 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) necessitates a fair chance for the public prosecutor, which he argued was not granted. He also said the trial court dismissed his detailed reply as overly cumbersome. Singhvi highlighted that the ED had a prolonged debate lasting three hours and 45 minutes before the judge. The trial courts bail order noted that the ED did not provide direct evidence linking Kejriwal to the proceeds of the excise policy deemed corrupt and scrapped in 2022. The ED and CBI allege that irregularities and unjust favours marked the policy's modification and implementation.

Excise policy case: Kejriwal moves SC against HC's interim stay on bail order in ED case

NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday approached the Supreme Court challenging Friday's Delhi High Court order that stayed his bail in the Delhi liquor case. The Delhi High Court's Vacation Bench of Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain had on Friday stayed the trial court's order granting Kejriwal bail and reserved judgment on the ED's appeal, stating he would pass the order in 2-3 days, possibly on Tuesday, June 25. This prompted Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Convenor Kejriwal to move the top court on Sunday challenging the HC's stay on his bail. Kejriwal's legal team told this newspaper that they would mention the matter on June 24, Monday, before a vacation bench of the top court and seek urgent listing and hearing in the case. We have filed an appeal in the top court challenging the HC order staying the bail of Kejriwal, lawyer Sanjeev Nasiar, a member of Kejriwal's legal team, told TNIE. It is to be noted that Justice Jain had on Friday indicated he would likely pass the order in the ED's appeal challenging the trial court's bail order on June 25, Tuesday. The HC order was a significant setback for Kejriwal. Delhi HC orders Sunita Kejriwal to take down video recording of court proceedings in excise policy case On Thursday, June 20, in a major relief to Kejriwal, Rouse Avenue Court's Vacation Judge Niyay Bindu granted him bail in the Delhi liquor case. Kejriwal is the prime accused in the now-scrapped Delhi liquor case. The court granted Kejriwal bail after directing him to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs 1 lakh. Soon after the pronouncement of the order by Judge Bindu, the ED, which is probing the Delhi liquor case along with the CBI, requested the court to give 48 hours to sign the bail bond so that the order could be challenged by the probe agency before the appellate court. The judge, however, did not allow the ED's request and ordered that the bail bond be produced before the duty judge by Friday. The trial court also made it clear to the ED that there was no stay on the bail order. Challenging the trial court order, the ED appealed to the Delhi HC seeking a stay on his bail. During the hearing on Thursday in the HC, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) SV Raju, representing the ED, argued that the trial court's bail order was perverse as it was contrary to the mandate of Section 45 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The trial court order should be immediately stayed. We were not given an opportunity to represent our case in the trial court. When I tried to submit, the trial court said I had to deliver the judgment. Be brief, he said. Opposing the ED's submissions, senior advocate Vikram Chaudhari, representing Kejriwal, raised a preliminary objection to listing the matter during the vacations because the trial judge had granted bail through a reasoned order. What is the justification for approaching the HC during vacations, he questioned. What is the anxiety to get it listed during vacations? There is no question of a stay, he said. Delhi excise policy case: CBI files supplementary charge sheet against BRS leader Kavitha ASG Raju further elaborated that material shown in the trial court was not considered. There are two ways bail can be cancelled. If relevant facts are not considered and irrelevant facts are considered, that is grounds for cancellation of bail, he explained. Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi countered, saying the ED's approach was deplorable. The accused (Kejriwal) cannot be kept indefinitely in jail merely for the investigating agency to find evidence. It is very unfortunate that the ASG is maligning the judge merely because an adverse order was passed, he said. Opposing the ASG's claim that he was not given an opportunity to argue, Singhvi stated that the hearing in the trial court lasted five hours, with the ED taking 3.45 hours and the rest by Kejriwal's lawyer. Therefore, where is the question of the ED being denied the opportunity to present its case? Singhvi pointed out, rejecting the submissions. On June 5, Judge Kaveri Baweja of Delhi's court rejected Kejriwal's bail plea on the grounds that his involvement in the crime could not be ruled out. The ED had told the court that he was the mastermind and main conspirator in the Delhi liquor case. We have all the evidence against him, ASG Raju told the court. A day after his plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court on April 9, Kejriwal moved the Supreme Court against the dismissal of his plea on April 10. The accused, Kejriwal, claimed innocence in the liquor gate scam case and told the court during the hearings that the timing of his arrest, right after the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) was enforced, was to humiliate, insult, and disable him and his political party. ASG Raju said there was sufficient evidence against him and that he was the main conspirator in the Delhi liquor scam case. Earlier on May 10, the Supreme Court granted Kejriwal bail till June 1 to participate in election campaigns, asking him to surrender on June 2, while imposing certain conditions on him. He had been in Tihar jail since March 21 for his alleged involvement in the Delhi liquor case. Bail order exposed BJP conspiracy, so ED challenged it in Delhi HC: Sanjay Singh

NHRC seeks report on untraceable, deceased manual scavengers in Gujarat

NEW DELHI: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has requested a detailed report on the un-compensated and untraceable deceased manual scavengers (Safai Karamcharis) in Gujarat from the Joint Secretary of the State's Social Justice Department. Acting on a petition filed by human rights activist and Supreme Court lawyer Radhakanta Tripathy, the NHRC has given the authority three months to respond with a detailed reply. The NHRC has also sought details on the compensation paid to each family member of the deceased and the status of pending court cases where compensation has yet to be paid. In his petition filed on March 26, 2018, Tripathy alleged that the Gujarat government had not paid compensation in 165 cases of manual scavenger deaths, despite a Supreme Court order mandating Rs 10 lakh compensation to the next of kin of each manual scavenger who died while cleaning gutters since 1993. NHRC seeks report on mental health of central forces Tripathy's petition sought compensation for the deceased's next of kin, compensation for injured persons, and action against the wrongdoers. Following the NHRC's directions, responses were received from the authorities concerned. The Commission has considered these responses over a series of proceedings regarding compensation payments. The Joint Secretary, Social Justice and Empowerment Department, Government of Gujarat, reported in 2021 that Rs 10 lakh compensation was paid to the legal heirs of 84 out of 161 deceased manual scavengers. Partial compensation was paid to the heirs of 11 deceased manual scavengers who agreed not to ask for the remaining amount. Despite efforts and advertisements in newspapers, no legal heirs were found for 34 deceased manual scavengers. One person refused the relief amount through an affidavit. Three individuals were not classified as manual scavengers under the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act, 2013. NHRC notice to Centre over 'anti-labour practices' at MNC workshop in Haryana's Manesar Eleven individuals were deemed ineligible for compensation for various reasons. Twenty-three names were excluded from the compensation list. Nine cases remain where compensation is yet to be paid, pending government approval to use funds from the Safai Kamdar Nigam. Subsequently, the NHRC issued an advisory on protecting the human rights of manual scavengers and ensuring proper safety equipment for sanitary workers. On December 26, 2023, the NHRC directed the Chief Secretary and Joint Secretary, Social Justice & Empowerment Department, Government of Gujarat, to provide a further consolidated report on the compensation paid to the next of kin of all 144 deceased who died during the cleaning of sewer lines/septic tanks, including the quantum of compensation. Six-month-old baby girl dies in police cross-firing; NHRC sends notice to Chhattisgarh govt The NHRC noted that the whereabouts of the legal heirs of 34 deceased persons remain unascertained despite efforts by the concerned Nagar Palika and Mahanagar Palikas. However, details of these efforts were not indicated in the reply. It is a matter of concern that the next of kin of 34 deceased persons have not been ascertained by the concerned Nagar Palikas and Mahanagar Palikas, Tripathy said. After adjudicating the case for more than six years, the NHRC observed, There may be muster rolls as well as other public documents such as Aadhar cards, voter ID cards, etc., based on which it may be possible to find out the details of the family members and to ascertain the next of kin of the deceased.
