no question of sidhu resigning over road rage case: amarinder singh
with opposition mounting attack on punjab minister navjot singh sidhu in connection with a 30-year-old road rage case, chief minister amarinder singh on sunday scotched speculation that the congress leader would be resigning from the state cabinet. the chief minister said there was no question of asking sidhu, the tourism, culture and local government minister, to quit.last week, the state government in the supreme court had favoured the punjab and haryana high court verdict convicting and awarding a three-year jail term to sidhu in the 1988 case. gurnam singh, a patiala resident, had died after he was given fist blow by sidhu.amarinder pointed out that the apex court had stayed sidhu's conviction in 2007 and was yet to pronounce its final verdict on his petition challenging the high court order. the question of the minister resigning, merely because the state government had repeated its stand of 30-years in the case before the supreme court, did not arise, he added.`there was neither any impediment in sidhu's induction into the cabinet nor in his continuation now, in view of the stay on his conviction`, amarinder said in a statement here.the categorical clarification from the chief minister came amid reports suggesting that sidhu had been asked to resign, and also in the wake of the demand from the opposition that he should step down.however, the chief minister once again expressed the hope `that the judge would take cognizance of sidhu's contribution to the society an...

debate on rewriting history unnecessary, exaggerations need to be removed: ichr chief
the debate in the country on rewriting history is unnecessary as some `exaggerations` need to be removed from time to time, indian council of historical research (ichr) chairman arvind jamkhedkar has said.in an interview to pti, he also said the mandate of the ichr, a body under the hrd ministry, was not to dictate history or decide curriculum but to encourage research to facilitate the rewriting of history.rewriting is part of the writing of history, he stated.the ichr chief supported his argument by stressing that rewriting was a `healthy` trend.`over a period of time certain awareness comes among historians and they find certain lacunae which would have been left by previous schools (of history),` he said.history has always been rewritten and it is a healthy thing because there have been exaggerations. for instance, it was thought that probably earlier economic historians might have exaggerated a few things and history was then rewritten, he said.asked about the debate in the country over revisions of history curricula, the chairman said, it is not ichr's mandate to dictate history or decide what should be taught. its job is to encourage scholars to conduct fresh and meaningful research to rewrite history.`the ichr is a flagship research-based institution that functions under the ministry of human resource development.

sjm bats for dropping nachiket mor from rbi board
the rss-affiliated sjm has written to prime minister narendra modi demanding the removal of nachiket mor from the rbi board on grounds of conflict of interest...there is no case for retaining nachiket mor on the board of reserve bank of india (rbi). it is a fit case of conflict of interest, as his principal employer bmgf receives foreign funds and the rbi is regulator of the fund, the swadeshi jagran manch co-convener ashwani mahajan said in his letter to modi.he further alleged that the activities of bill and melinda gates foundation (bmgf) are suspicious.we request you to take stringent action so that the message must go to all that they can't take india for granted, the letter added.mor is full-time india representative of bmgf, which is under the strict vigil of the ministry of home affairs and is actively getting funds from foreign sources, mahajan said in his letter.the fact that bmgf is functioning in india with rbi's permission makes it a glaring case of conflict of interest, he said.the home ministry is keeping a vigil on bmgf because of the allegations that the foundation is working for multinational companies to influence government policies on health and agriculture sectors in their favour, the sjm said.the sjm also demanded that instructions must be issued to niti aayog, icmr and the union ministries of agriculture, health and family welfare, finance besides the women and child development to keep such outfits and their representatives at bay.mor is currently n...

the bjp on sunday demanded the sacking of jammu and kashmir congress chief ghulam ahmad mir, claiming that he was seen in a video terming the police probe in the kathua rape-and-murder case motivated and defending the public protests against it.citing the bjp's decision to remove two of its jammu and kashmir ministers, who had joined the public protests against the probe, union minister prakash javadekar wondered if congress president rahul gandhi would only point fingers at others but maintain silence on the comments of his party's jammu and kashmir unit chief.in the video, which was played during a press conference at the bjp headquarters here, mir is purportedly telling reporters that the locals believed the investigation was motivated and that the main culprits were still at large.questions would be raised and there must be some justification for the people's demand, mir said, wondering if the probe was aimed at making some political points.`when our ministers expressed these sentiments, the congress, the media made a lot of noise. we took action. they resigned. now we want to ask rahul gandhi, who took out a candlelight march (protesting the growing incidents of crime against women in the country), why is he not taking action against his party's state president,` javadekar said.pointing fingers at others while protecting its own was the character of the congress party, he claimed.the bjp had faced flak after its leaders in the jammu region, including two ministers ...

army chief general bipin rawat on sunday said the radicalised youth of the valley would soon realise that the gun was not the solution to their problem as neither the army nor the terrorists would achieve their goals through it.peace, he said, was the only way to improve the situation in kashmir that has been witnessing militancy for about three decades now.`there is hope that the situation in kashmir will improve...it's not gone wrong. there are some youths in kashmir who have strayed and have been radicalised. they think they can achieve their goal through guns.`but the time is not far when even they will be convinced that neither the forces nor the terrorists will be able to achieve their goal. we have to together find a way for peace and we will be successful in that,` rawat said.the army chief was speaking at the 70th foundation day of jammu and kashmir light infantry regiment.he said although a section of people in the valley had strayed, that was a very small number and the majority of people desired peace and believed that they were indians.it is wrong to say that situation in kashmir has deteriorated. the atmosphere is vitiated but the situation has not deteriorated, he said.rawat, who served extensively in kashmir through his tenure, said the concept of `kashmiryat` had to be brought back and the process initiated by the university of kashmir.he noted that `unity in diversity` was the real essence of kashmiriyat and it is important to inform the youth about ...

afghans register to vote in long-delayed elections amid violence
afghanistan at the weekend began registering voters across the war-torn country as it seeks to ensure that long-delayed legislative elections in october are seen as credible and fraud-free.over the next two months authorities hope to register as many as 14 million adults at more than 7,000 polling centres - an ambitious goal in a country where militants control or contest much of the territory.`the main challenge is insecurity, particularly in rural areas,` said abdul badie sayad, chairman of the independent election commission. in addition to the taliban and islamic state group terrorising swathes of the population, `local powers, illegal militias and strongmen will try to interfere` in the parliamentary and district council elections, sayad predicted.a shortage of female staff at polling centres, particularly in conservative rural areas, could also impede participation by women in the polls, which are seen as a test run for next year's presidential election.`women won't be given permission from their families to reach the registration centres, where they may be asked to remove their burqa to show their faces,` sayad said.in kabul, on saturday, police stood guard at a school being used as a registration centre but only a handful of men showed up.mohammad hussein, a 54-year-old shopkeeper, said he wanted to vote for a candidate `able to bring about change in this country`.`i voted in 2010 but i made a mistake - the mp didn't bring any change. this time i need to v...

centre considering various options, including ordinance
there is a need to overturn the supreme court order laying down fresh guidelines on the arrest of those accused of committing atrocities against sc and st communities, the government feels, and bringing an ordinance to restore the original provisions of the sc/st (prevention of atrocities) act is one of the options being considered.sources aware of deliberations within the government at different levels say promulgating an ordinance to restore the original provisions would help calm tempers.introducing a bill in the monsoon session of parliament slated for july to amend the scheduled castes and scheduled tribe (prevention of atrocities) act, 1989 to overturn the sc order is the second option before the government, the sources said.`if an ordinance is issued, it too will have to be converted into a bill and passed by parliament. the result of the two exercises is the same -- to restore the original provisions. but the ordinance has the benefit of giving instant results. it will help calm tempers immediately,` a senior functionary said.dalit groups had organised protests across the country on april 2 against the alleged dilution of the act through the march 20 verdict of the supreme court. the protests had turned violent at several places which left several people dead.opposition parties also accused the government of failing to protect dalit rights.prime minister narendra modi on friday asserted his government will not let the law to prevent atrocities on scs and sts to be d...
