IPL 2024: Starc, Shreyas, Venkatesh Steer KKR Into Final After Eight-wicket Win Over SRH

Kolkata Knight Riders: Unbeaten half-centuries by captain Shreyas Iyer (58*) and Venkatesh Iyer (51*) guided Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to a crushing eight-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Qualifier 1 and place in the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at Narendra Modi Stadium here on Tuesday. Hyderabad will have another chance to face KKR in the final as they will next take on the winner of the Eliminator match between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru in Chennai on Friday. Chasing 160, openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Sunil Narine gave KKR an electric start in the Powerplay overs as the due scored runs at a run rate of over 10 runs per over. The first-wicket partnership lasted for 44 runs in 20 balls before T. Natrajan made inroads in the fourth over. The pacer removed Gurbaz at the score of 23 to bring the side back in the game after the thundering start in the chase. Venkatesh Iyer joined Narine in the middle and kept the momentum going as they added 23 runs before Pat Cummins got Narine (21) in his first over into the attack just after the powerplay. Shreyas Iyer walked out to bat at No. 4 and built the match-winning partnership for the side that allowed them to chase the total with 38 balls to spare. Shreyas (58*) and Venkatesh (51*) accumulated an unbeaten 97-run partnership for the third wicket and also smashed their individual fifties during the successful run-chase. Both players hit four sixes and five fours each as they went berserk to take their side to the final. Earlier, KKR restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to 159 all out in 19.3 overs after the latter decided to bat first. Hyderabad did not get the ideal start of the match as they lost attacking opener Travis Head again for a duck. Things got worse well inside the Powerplay as they lost three more wickets in the first six overs. Pacer Mitchell Starc was on a roll as he got three of the four wickets in the powerplay. Abhishek Sharma (3), Nitish Reddy (9). and Shahbaz Ahmed (0) were picked cheaply as Hyderabad's batters faltered in the high-pressure game. SRH were 45/4 after six overs. However, Rahul Tripathi and Heinrich Klaasen's presence in the middle gave some respite for the franchise as they played their shots freely despite being under pressure. The duo stitched a quickfire 62-run partnership off 37 balls as Tripathi struck a 29-ball fifty before Varun Chakaravarthy broke the partnership in the 11th over. Klaasen departed after playing a knock of 32 runs. Abdul Samad joined Tripathi to further boost the score but a mix-up in the middle of the pitch ended the latter's innings on 55. His knock included seven fours and a six. In the late middle overs, SRH failed to recover from the situation and kept on losing wickets as Sunil Narine and Harshit Rana also joined the party for KKR. In the end, captain Pat Cummins played a cameo knock of 30 runs off 24 balls to take his side past the 150-run mark. His late effort was put to an end by Andre Russell in the final over of the innings. For KKR, Starc was the pick of the bowlers, returning with figures of 3-34 while Chakaravarthy snapped two scalps. Brief scores: Sunrisers Hyderabad 159 all out in 19.3 overs (Rahul Tripathi 55, Heinrich Klaasen 32; Mitchell Starc 3/34, Varun Chakaravarthy 2-26) lost to Kolkata Knight Riders 164/2 in 13.4 overs (Shreyas Iyer 58*, Venkatesh Iyer 51*; T. Natarajan 1-22) by eight wickets.

West Bengal Police Raid House of BJP Leader Suvendu Adhikari, Sparking Outrage

KOLKATA: West Bengal police on Tuesday raided a rented house of leader of the opposition Suvendu Adhikari, leaving him furious. In the afternoon, around 70 cops conducted the raid on the rented house of the Nandigram BJP MLA at Kolaghat in East Midnapore. They claimed that they searched the place hunting for a miscreant who is absconding in a case. Mr Adhikari who was at a Lok Sabha Election campaign rally rushed to Kolaghat police station in the evening with his aides and burst into anger. He pointed out that he has protection from the Calcutta High Court which bars police to take any action against him. Mr Adhikari also threatened to move the HC on Wednesday against the raid. Who will be responsible if the police plant some weapons at my home in my absence? The Election Commission must act such frivolous step by the police. I want to know why the raid was done and at the behest of whom. It is clear chief minister Mamata Banerjee is trying to victimise me, the BJP MLA claimed.

Monks Rally in Kolkata to Protest CM Banerjee's Remarks and Jalpaiguri Ashram Attack

Monks Rally in Kolkata to Protest CM Banerjee's Remarks and Jalpaiguri Ashram Attack Monks of West Bengal have decided to bring out a rally in Kolkata on May 24 in protest against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's remarks against some monks of Ramakrishna Mission and Bharat Sevasharam Sangha. The 'Sant Swabhiman Yatra' will be organised in north Kolkata by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and members of the Bangiya Sanyasi Samaj, an apex body of monks in West Bengal. The participants of the rally will also condemn the attack on a Ramakrishna Mission Ashram in Jalpaiguri on Sunday. ''The CM is making such remarks due to vote bank politics. We strongly condemn it. Monks of West Bengal will hold a protest rally against the comments,'' VHP leader Sourish Mukherjee said. Banerjee had stated that certain monks of influential monastic orders in West Bengal were working on the instructions of the BJP in the elections. Prime Minister Narendra Modi criticised the remarks, accusing the TMC of threatening monks for vote bank politics. Banerjee defended her statement, saying she was criticising certain individuals and not the institutions. Unidentified persons also stormed the premises of Ramakrishna Mission (RKM) in Jalpaiguri and threatened monks and other employees at gunpoint. An RKM official, however, suggested that local land mafia was behind the incident, which was reportedly a matter of property dispute. The monks lodged a complaint at Bhaktinagar police station against a local tough and his associates.

Mitchell Starc's Fiery Spell Powers KKR to IPL Final with Emphatic Win Over SRH

Mitchell Starc's Fiery Spell Powers KKR to IPL Final with Emphatic Win Over SRH Mitchell Starc-powered Kolkata Knight Riders' juggernaut rolled into the IPL final as the two-time champions produced a ruthless performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad for an eight-wicket win in Qualifier 1 here on Tuesday. Starc produced a stunning opening burst of three wickets in the powerplay to break the back of SRHs dangerous batting. They were eventually shot out for a mere 159 in 19.3 overs with Rahul Tripathi scoring a vital 55 while Heinrich Klaasen (32) and Pat Cummins (30) also fought hard. On a benign wicket in steaming hot conditions, SRHs fight petered out as KKR knocked off the innocuous 160-run target in a mere 13.4 overs with skipper Shreyas Iyer (58 not out off 24) and Venkatesh Iyer (51 not out off 28) taking them over the line. KKR will play their fourth IPL final in Chennai on Sunday. SRH, who had pipped Rajasthan Royals on the final day of the league stage to finish second in the points table, will now proceed to Chennai to have another crack at making the summit clash with the Qualifier 2 to be played on May 24. The Pat Cummins-led side will face the winner of the Eliminator between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru here on Wednesday. In his first game this season, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (23) played his role to perfection with two crucial grabs behind the wicket and a quickfire 14-ball 23 at the top laced with two sixes and as many fours. Chasing a below-par target, KKR raised their fifty in no time. Sunil Narine (21) perished shortly after the powerplay which brought the pair of Shreyas and Venkatesh together. They put on 97 runs for the third wicket to complete a comprehensive victory. Shreyas also had luck on his side as a paddle sweep off Viyaskanth Vijaykanth ricocheted off SRH keeper Heinrich Klaasen who went for the catch in the 10th over. But with short midwicket fielder Rahul Tripathi running in hard for it as well, Klaasen could not hold onto the ball despite having it in his grasp while nearly avoiding a collision. Soon after, the day went from bad to worse for SRH and Head who spilled a regulation catch off T Natarajan in the 11th over which gave the KKR skipper another lifeline. If Shreyas was content nurdling the ball around while putting the odd ball away for boundaries, Venkatesh outmatched his skipper with a rapid half-century which was completed off 28 balls. However, Shreyas overtook his younger partner to wrap up the game with a flurry of boundaries. Venkatesh, on his part, remained unbeaten on 51 off 28 balls with four sixes and five fours. Earlier, the lanky Australian speedster Starc reaped benefits of utilising his core skill of bowling quick and swinging the ball. He rattled the stumps of SRH marauder Head on the second ball of the contest to set the tone in KKRs favour. IPLs third highest run-getter Head was all over the place when he went for a wild heave against his compatriot, who got the ball nipping slightly away after pitching and knocking down the off and middle stumps to dismiss the batter for his second consecutive duck. Starc also bounced out Nitish Reddy (9) and had Shahbaz Ahmed (0) chopping one onto his wickets to put KKR in firm control inside the powerplay. With Head removed from the equation early, SRH pinned their hopes on Abhishek Sharma but the left-hander too was confined to having an unsuccessful outing. Abhishek, who has immaculately picked gaps and unleashed spectacular shots more often than not this season, played one meekly towards cover where Andre Russell timed his leap to perfection and used both his hands to complete the dismissal, off Vaibhav Arora.

90% of passengers getting their luggage now within 30 minutes: Ministry of Civil Aviation

DELHI: The baggage delivery time at six major airports has improved significantly in the last four months, with more than 90% of the passengers getting their baggage within 30 minutes of an aircraft landing, said the ministry of civil aviation (MoCA) on Tuesday. The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, under the aegis of MoCA, had undertaken an exercise to enhance the baggage delivery system of the domestic airlines in the six major airports of India, namely Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru. As per the global standards prescribed by IATA (International Air Transport Association), as well as Schedule 3 of the OMDA (Operation, Management and Development Agreement) with airports, baggage should be delivered to passengers within 30% of the arrival of the aircraft. The exercise started on 14/01/24. It was found that only 62.2% (as on January 14, 2024) of the passengers were getting their baggage within IATA-prescribed timelines. A root cause analysis was undertaken jointly by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, along with all domestic airlines. Post the above exercise, an overhaul and upgradation in equipment, services and monitoring was put in place to speed up baggage delivery. After two months of evaluation, it can be concluded through latest findings that there has been a marked increase in the percentage of baggage complying with the globally accepted prescribed limit. From 62.2% of passengers getting on-time baggage delivery in the January, the number increased to more than 90% from March 2024 onwards, said MoCA in a statement. It added that the percentages of bags arriving within 30 minutes has reached a high of 92.5% in May 2024.

Not that the third team in the playoffs - Kolkata Knight Riders - will not miss the services of its opener - Phil Salt. The explosive opener was pivotal in providing explosive starts to the team almost every time this season with West Indian Sunil Narine to his company. They, however, can have yet another go at a place in the final even if they lose Qualifier 1 against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who fortunately don't have an English player in their ranks. Among the two teams slated to feature in the Eliminator on Wednesday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Rajasthan will be hit the most. Their opener, Jos Buttler, will be missed badly when they take the field against RCB, who seem to be on the roll. The England captain might not have taken the tournament by storm given his tall standards but he was irreplaceable in the RR scheme of things. His twin unbeaten centuries against Kolkata and Bengaluru powered the team to commendable victories. In fact, the inaugural champions were formidable at the start winning eight of the first nine matches only losing the fifth contest against Gujarat Titans. The rampaging show meant they were at top of the table for weeks. But they slided from the numero uno position as they went on to lose next four games and with their last match against Kolkata ending in no result, they ended the league stage at third position on the points table. New mentor, general election and Kolkata's quest for third IPL trophy Buttler's absence was not the reason for change in fortunes. He was there in the team in the first three losses only to leave before an encounter against Punjab Kings, which RR lost. His compatriot Tom Kohler-Cadmore replaced him at the top in the match and scored 18 off 23 balls before being named in the playing XI for the washed out KKR tie. Like Rajasthan, Faf du Plessis-led RCB too will miss the services of English all-rounder Will Jacks but his absence is likely to have a lesser impact. It was Jacks, who slammed an unbeaten hundred as RCB chased down a 201-run target against Gujarat. He was the key against KKR as well scoring 32-ball 55 even as the team fell short by the barest of margin while chasing 223 for a win. The Bengaluru outfit, however, managed to make up with his absence scripting an epic comeback to stay in contention for the elusive IPL title. To begin with, they won just one of their first eight matches but registered six straight victories to make it to the playoffs edging past the five-time champions Chennai Super Kings. Pacer Reece Topley, who has taken four wickets from as many matches, is another English player in the RCB squad but he was not a regular part of the team. Former players including Sunil Gavaskar, Wasim Akram and Irfan Pathan minced no words in slamming England Cricket Board's decision of withdrawing their players from the IPL. Gavaskar, in his column on an English daily, even suggested financial penalties on the contracted players and the ECB. The franchises should not only be allowed to deduct a substantial amount from the fee that the player was bought for, but also not give the board, to which the player belongs, the stated 10 per cent commission of the fee that each player gets, he has emphasised in his column. Either be available for full season or don't come, former India all-rounder Pathan said on his X handle. While it's not known if the England players had listen 'any periods of unavailability on their auction applications', the England Cricket Board, according to ESPNCricinfo, had informed the league in December itself that 'its players will be available for the whole season subject to fitness and international duty and any periods of unavailability that players submitted on their auction applications'. The report also mentioned that if any players need any specific management 'in the build-up to the World Cup', Rob Key, the body's managing director, would deal directly with the players and franchise in question. England are scheduled to play four-match T20I series against visiting Pakistan with the first contest scheduled for Wednesday in Leeds in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies. The pull out by the English players has once again reignited the country vs club debate. Sanju Samson and Co have already bore its brunt and the same will again come to the fore when they play RCB in their bid to keep their title hopes alive.

Mamata Banerjee Defends TMC Amid BJP Allegations of Vandalism and Religious Bias

Mamata Banerjee Defends TMC Amid BJP Allegations of Vandalism and Religious Bias Taking a strong view of the BJP's charges that the TMC was involved in vandalisation of properties of Ramakrishna Mission in Jalpaiguri district, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday accused the saffron camp of falsely implicating her party over an incident triggered by property dispute. Addressing an election rally in support of TMC candidate from Barasat Lok Sabha seat Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Banerjee said she had always been supportive of the RKM and other socio-religious organisations. Banerjee claimed that she renovated the residence of Sister Nivedita in Kolkata and the birthplace of Swami Vivekananda. ''I dont discriminate among religions. I work for renovating places of worship of all religions,'' she said. ''I may go for defamation for maligning me and my party for spreading misinformation against our party. If anything happens in the state, the report comes to me as an administrator immediately. I did not get any such update. We have great respect for religious organisations like RKM and others,'' Banerjee said. Miscreants have vandalised the premises of the Ramakrishna Mission in Jalpaiguri district and threatened monks and other employees at gunpoint to leave the place, an RKM official said Monday. The official said that a local land mafia was behind the early Sunday morning incident. ''Many people donate property for religious reasons and then some dispute may break out. Police are investigating and action will be taken. But how dare you (BJP) implicate anyone without ascertaining the matter.'' she said while referring to the vandalisation of the RKM ashram at Salugara in Jalpaiguri. About the minority appeasement charges against the TMC, she said, ''I wont hanker for a certificate about my Hindu identity from BJP, but for me, all religions are the same. Every religion speaks about humanity and brotherhood. My biggest identity is I am a human. I believe in brotherhood, Modi believes in hatred and sowing seeds of discord.'' Speaking on the controversy over the comments of BJP leader Sambit Patra about Lord Jagannath, Banerjee said, ''Just imagine, BJP leaders are now saying 'Lord Jagannath is a bhakt of Modi'. Banerjee also alleged that BJP leaders have crossed all limits'' and were saying whatever they want, proclaiming themselves as custodians of Hinduism. ''They have hurt the sentiments of lakhs of devotees,'' she said. Banerjee also accused the BJP of hatching a conspiracy to engineer riots in Sandeshkhali. Alleging that the ''Marxists had burnt to death 19 Ananda Margis during their rule in Kolkata'', Banerjee said, ''Those who used to work for CPI(M) are now with BJP.'' She said the TMC has no truck with CPI(M) in West Bengal but would support the INDIA bloc in forming the government at the Centre after the Lok Sabha polls.

IPL 2024 Qualifier 1, SRH vs KKR: Watch Out For These Players

Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Narendra Modi Stadium today. Both the teams will play for the direct spot in the final. SRH and KKR have shown some great performances in this IPL season, with the ball as well as with the bat. The opening batters of both the teams have fired well and helped their teams to put up good totals in this season. KKR openers Phil Salt and Sunil Narine have given the team explosive starts in this season. The team will miss Phil Salt's services as he is back on his international duties and Gurbaz will likely open with Narine. It will be a test for Gurbaz, if he is in the playing XI, as he hadn't played a single match this season. Here the players that needs to be watched out : Travis Head: SRH opener has played some explosive knocks which helped the team to win the game. Currently, he is the third highest run scorer in this season. He is known for his fearless batting and if he starts knocking well then he will be unstoppable. Head has scored 533 runs in 12 matches with a strike rate of 201. Abhishek Sharma: SRH's another opener Abhishek Sharma has put up great performances with his partner Travis Head this season. The duo has the record for fastest 100-run partnership of 30 balls in the history of IPL. Abhishek has scored 467 runs in 13 matches with an impressive strike rate of 209. Both these batters need to be watched out, they broke some records this season and if they are not stopped earlier, then we can expect some explosive batting today. Henrich Klaasen: The wicket-keeper batter has shown some hard hitting performances this season. He is one of the best finishers in the T20 format and he is capable of taking the game away from the opponent. With the strike rate of 183, he has scored 381 runs this season. Sunil Narine: The West Indies player has shown some all-round performance, he has impressed with both, bat and ball. He has played some explosive knocks this season with one century under his belt. Sunil Narine has scored 461 runs with a strike rate of 182 and also picked up 15 wickets this season. Shreyas Iyer: Skipper Shreyas Iyer is the third highest run getter for KKR. He is capable of playing some good knocks and he will be one of the players to watch out for. Iyer has scored 287 runs in 13 matches. Andre Russel: The powerful all-rounder can take the match away from you with both the bat and ball. He has scored 261 runs and also picked up 15 wickets this season. Nitish Kumar Reddy: The local lad has been impressive and he has delivered for SRH at the right time. This young talented batter needs to be watched out for in today's match. Nitish scored 276 runs in 10 matches. T Natarajan: With 17 wickets in 11 matches this season, Natarajan is one of the bowlers that needs to be watched out today.

Tripura govt working on arrangement for bringing fuel, goods via Bangladesh: Minister

Agartala: The Tripura government has been working on an arrangement to strengthen the supply of fuel and essential goods via Bangladesh, a minister said. The alternative arrangement to bring fuel and goods to Tripura will bypass rail links through Assam and the national highway connecting the state's capital Agartala with the neighboring state, he said. Notably, the northeastern state had faced a severe fuel crisis after the derailment of a goods train in Assam's Jatinga. Disruption of traffic movement on the Assam Agartala highway considered a lifeline for Tripura, and through the rail links connecting the neighboring state due to landslides during the monsoon season is common. In view of the recent disruption in the railway network in Assam's Jatinga, we are working on alternative arrangements to ensure a seamless supply of fuel and goods via Bangladesh. The Agartala-Gangasagar (Bangladesh) rail tracks will be ready for goods transportation in the next six months to one year. Once the route is opened for goods movement, we can bring fuel and goods from Kolkata directly via Bangladesh, Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury said at a press conference on Monday. Chief Minister Manik Saha has recently said that the rail service between Agartala and Gangasagar will be made operational shortly. Chowdhury said the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) has been working to build a large fuel depot in Sepahijala district's Sekerkote for fuel storage. We are hopeful that IOCL will complete the project in six months to one year. If this facility is created, the state will have enough stock of fuel which will prove beneficial in case of any disruption in goods transportation, he said. Chowdhury also said the state has built up a sufficient stock of fuel - 1,700 kl of petrol and 2,726 kl of diesel - in view of the upcoming monsoon season. The minister said the Food and Civil Supplies Department has stored a sufficient quantity of essential food items such as rice, wheat, oil, sugar, salt, and pulses. Under the Public Distribution System, the state has rice for 70 days, sugar for 28 days, pulses for 22 days, and salt for 45 days. Besides, the stock of other food items, including edible oil, seems good. There should not be any shortage of essential items during the monsoon even if there is any disruption in the connectivity, he added.

Raj Bhavan staffers get anticipatory bail from Kolkata's Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court

Raj Bhavan staffers get anticipatory bail from Kolkata's Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court Three staffers of the Raj Bhavan including the Governor's Officer on Special Duty (OSD) were granted anticipatory bail by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Kolkata on Tuesday. This comes after the three Raj Bhavan employees were summoned by the Kolkata Police in connection with the molestation charges against West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose. The Kolkata Police have registered an FIR in the Raj Bhavan molestation case, naming the three staffers under Section 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint) and Section 166 (Public servant disobeying law, with intent to cause injury to any person) of the Indian Penal Code. The individuals named in the FIR have been identified as SS Rajput, the officer on special duty (OSD), Kusum Chetri who was seen in the CCTV footage carrying a bag, and Sant Lal, a peon at the Raj Bhavan. The complainant, a contractual staffer at Raj Bhavan, claimed that she was detained by staff members after the incident and pressured to keep quiet on May 2. The victim has already recorded a statement under Section 164 before a Magistrate in this case. The West Bengal Governor had earlier launched an initiative enabling any citizen of the state, with the exceptions of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the state police, to access the CCTV footage of the incident by sending him an email or making a call to the Raj Bhavan. Hon'ble Governor Dr. C. V. Ananda Bose has launched a programme SACH KE SAAMNE in the background of the mischievous and fabricated allegations by the police that Raj Bhavan is not sparing the CCTV footage of an incident which is under the illegal and unconstitutional investigation of the police, read a notice posted on the official X handle of Governor Bose. Hon'ble Governor has decided that the CCTV footage can be seen by any citizen of West Bengal except politician Mamata Banerjee and her police for the stand they had taken, which is in the public domain, the post read further.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are all set to take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) today in the Qualifier 1 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Narendra Modi stadium.

Kolkata Knight Riders with 20 points, winning 9 out of their 14 matches, is in the top of the table whereas Sunrisers are in the second position with 17 points.

Knight Riders have met Sunrisers once this season, in which KKR emerged victorious. It was a close contest match where KKR won by 4 runs but SRH's star batter Travis Head was missing in the playing XI. KKR posted 208 in 20 overs on the scoreboard, where Andre Russel fired for the team scoring 64 runs. In reply, Sunrisers Hyderabad fell short of the target scoring 204 in their 20 overs.

In farewell speech, Calcutta HC judge Chitta Ranjan Dash says 'ready to go back to RSS'

KOLKATA: Justice Chitta Ranjan Dash, who retired as a judge of the Calcutta High Court on Monday, said he was a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Speaking at his farewell at the high court in the presence of the judges and members of the bar, Justice Dash said he was eady to go back to the organisation if they called him for any assistance or for any work that he was capable of doing. To the distaste of some persons, I must admit here that I was and I am a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), he said. Demitting office after over 14 years as a high court judge, Justice Dash came to the Calcutta HC from the Orissa HC on transfer. I owe a lot to the organisation. I am there from my childhood and throughout my youth, he said. I have learnt to be courageous, upright and have an equal view for others and above all, the sense of patriotism and commitment to the work, he said. Justice Dash said that he had distanced himself from the organisation for about 37 years because of the work he undertook. I have never used my membership of the organisation for any advancement of my career because it is against its principles, he said. Justice Dash said he treated everybody at par, be he a rich or poor person, be he a communist, or from the BJP, Congress or TMC (Trinamool Congress). All are equal before me, I do not hold any bias for anyone or for any particular political philosophy or mechanism, he said, adding that he tried to dispense justice on the principles of empathy and that law can be bent to do justice, but justice cannot be bent to suit the law. He said that he was eady to go back to the organisation if they called him for any assistance or for any work they needed which he was capable of doing. Because I have not done anything wrong in my life, I have the courage to say I belong to the organisation, because that is also not wrong, he said, adding that if he was a good person, he could not belong to a bad organisation.

Uber shuttle gets government permission to operate AC buses in capital

NEW DELHI: Uber on Monday became the first aggregator to receive a license from the Transport Department to operate Uber Shuttle in the national capital, as part of the Delhi Premium Bus scheme. The air-conditioned buses, which will accommodate between 19 to 50 passengers, will be run by local fleet partners with Ubers support. Bookings for Uber Shuttle can be made via the Uber Shuttle option on the Uber app, allowing riders to pre-book seats up to a week in advance on their preferred routes. The app also enables users to track the live location and route of the bus, as well as view its expected time of arrival (ETA). The launch in Delhi follows a successful pilot in the Delhi NCR region, where Uber noted significant demand. The service has been operational in Kolkata since last year. Uber Shuttle aims to provide tech-optimized mobility solutions using private bus fleets, addressing road congestion and reducing carbon emissions by encouraging shared rides, the company stated. Amit Deshpande, Head of Uber Shuttle India, expressed confidence in the initiative, saying, Through a new option for commuters and creating a new source of livelihood for drivers, we are confident that this initiative will prove to be a win-win for all. An official from the Transport Department, Government of Delhi, welcomed the initiative, stating, We are pleased to extend an opportunity to Uber to utilize its global experience and technological prowess to contribute to an elevated commuting experience for the people of Delhi.

Tripura Strengthens Fuel and Goods Supply Chain Via Bangladesh

Tripura Strengthens Fuel and Goods Supply Chain Via Bangladesh The Tripura government has been working on an arrangement to strengthen the supply of fuel and essential goods via Bangladesh, a minister said. The alternative arrangement to bring fuel and goods to Tripura will bypass rail links through Assam and the national highway connecting the state's capital Agartala with the neighbouring state, he said. Notably, the northeastern state had faced a severe fuel crisis after the derailment of a goods train in Assam's Jatinga. Disruption of traffic movement on the AssamAgartala highway, considered a lifeline for Tripura, and through the rail links connecting the neighbouring state due to landslides during the monsoon season is common. ''In view of the recent disruption in the railway network in Assam's Jatinga, we are working on alternative arrangements to ensure a seamless supply of fuel and goods via Bangladesh. The Agartala-Gangasagar (Bangladesh) rail tracks will be ready for goods transportation in the next six months to one year. Once the route is opened for goods movement, we can bring fuel and goods from Kolkata directly via Bangladesh,'' Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury said at a press conference on Monday. Chief Minister Manik Saha has recently said that the rail service between Agartala and Gangasagar will be made operational shortly. Chowdhury said the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) has been working to build a large fuel depot in Sepahijala district's Sekerkote for fuel storage. ''We are hopeful that IOCL will complete the project in six months to one year. If this facility is created, the state will have enough stock of fuel which will prove beneficial in case of any disruption in goods transportation,'' he said. Chowdhury also said the state has built up a sufficient stock of fuel - 1,700 kl of petrol and 2,726 kl of diesel - in view of the upcoming monsoon season. The minister said the Food and Civil Supplies Department has stored a sufficient quantity of essential food items such as rice, wheat, oil, sugar, salt and pulses. ''Under the Public Distribution System, the state has rice for 70 days, sugar for 28 days, pulses for 22 days and salt for 45 days. Besides, the stock of other food items, including edible oil, seems good. There should not be any shortage of essential items during the monsoon even if there is any disruption in the connectivity,'' he added.
