Chief minister Bhagwant Mann announces service will be available at half the rate being charged by private operators.

Chief minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday announced that from June 15, the state government will ply Volvo buses from the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi airport to different towns in Punjab.

Mann assured that the fare of the government-run Volvo buses will be half of that of private buses without compromising on the services.

In a video message shared on social media, the chief minister said earlier the transport mafia was making profit from this route but now the money earned will go to the state exchequer.

After the Aam Aadmi Party came to power in Punjab in March, a discussion was held on the issue with officials concerned.

A meeting of transport officials of Delhi and Punjab was also held.

The bus service to Delhi airport is expected to start from 10 cities — Chandigarh, Rupnagar, Jalandhar, Hoshiarpur, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Pathankot, Moga, Muktsar and Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, since most prospective passengers belong to these areas.

The timetable of the bus service will be made according to the flight schedule.

The chief ministers of Punjab and Delhi discussed the issue before it was taken up at a secretary-level meeting of the transport departments of both states. Source : ht

Maharashtra crisis: Rebel Shiv Sena MLA warned that if any harm occurs to the family members of the legislators, top leaders of Maha Vikas Aghadi including NCP chief Sharad Pawar, chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray and Sena MP Sanjay Raut will be responsible.

Rebel MLA Eknath Shinde on Saturday alleged the Maha Vikas Aghadi government led by Uddhav Thackeray had withdrawn the security cover provided to his family and those of other MLAs camping with him in Guwahati.

Shinde tweeted the letter addressed to Thackeray, Maharashtra home minister Dilip Walse Patil, director general of police (DGP) Rajnish Seth and all the police commissioners, Shinde alleged malicious withdrawal of security cover to the family members of the MLAs.

“That we are current sitting MLAs, however, the security provided to us at our residence as well as to our family members as per the protocol has been illegally and unlawfully withdrawn, as an act of revenge. Needless to mention, this sinister move is another attempt to break our resolve and arm twist us to give into the demands of the MVA government comprising the NCP and INC goons,” Shinde said in the letter.

The rebel MLA also alleged that the constituent parties of MVA alliance are instigating their cadres to resort to violence against the legislators. He warned that if any harm occurs to the family members of the legislators, top leaders of Maha Vikas Aghadi including NCP chief Sharad Pawar, chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray and Sena MP Sanjay Raut will be responsible.

However, the Maharashtra government denied issuing any such order. “Neither the Chief Minister nor the Home Department has ordered the withdrawal of security of any MLA. The allegations being levelled through Twitter are false and completely baseless,” Maharashtra home minister Dilip Walse Patil said.

Reacting to Shinde's letter, Raut said,"You are an MLA, so security has been provided to you. Your family members can't be provided with the same." The rebel MLA's allegation at the Sena top brass comes ahead of the party's executive meet at 1 pm.

“We'll sit together at meeting, discuss party's expansion, and its future. Party is very big, & cannot be hijacked with such ease. It's been made with our blood. Several sacrificed to make it. No one can break it with money,” Raut said. Source : ht

Polling for urban local bodies begins in Odisha

Written by Tuesday, 19 September 2017 10:38

State election commissioner Aditya Prasad Padhi said 22,000 officials have been deployed for the electoral process.

BHUBANESWAR: The polling to elect 1,899 councillors, 106 chairpersons, and mayors for 109 urban local bodies, including Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, and Berhampur municipal corporations, in Odisha began on Thursday morning.

Over four million voters are eligible to vote across 4,475 booths between 8 am and 5 pm. Voting machine glitches were reported from Bhubaneswar and Nuapada as the polling began. Polling was delayed at three booths in Bhubaneswar and one in Nuapada.

State election commissioner Aditya Prasad Padhi said 22,000 officials have been deployed for the electoral process. The results will be announced on Saturday as direct elections are being held for the first time for the posts of chairpersons and mayors.

“As many as 195 platoons of the police...have been deployed... At least 30 platoons have been deployed in Bhubaneswar... Similarly, 20 and 10 platoons... in Cuttack and Berhampur... mobile squads will be operating in different areas,” said Padhi.

The polls have been due since December 2018 and July 2019. They were first delayed after a plea was filed in the Orissa high court in 2018 alleging the reservation of seats for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes exceeded 50% in 2012, 2017 panchayat elections, and 2013 civic polls in violation of a Supreme Court order.

The high court in 2018 directed the government that reserved seats should not exceed the cap in the non-scheduled areas. The state government in September 2018 moved the Supreme Court, which rejected its appeal. A special leave petition was also rejected in January 2019 as the Supreme Court asked the government to abide by the high court directive. The election process was later delayed due to the Covid pandemic.

Alleged pre-poll violence was reported from Balasore, where a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporter suffered injuries after he was allegedly stabbed on Wednesday. Source : ht

The President said that the legislature is a temple of democracy and the lawmakers are the 'bhaagyavidhata' or those who decide the destiny. Kovind said that the people of the state have expectations from the representatives who should fulfil them.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday addressed a joint session of the Uttar Pradesh legislative council and the legislative assembly, saying that the UP legislature has a glorious history of amicability between the ruling party and the opposition, news agency PTI reported.

Stating that there can be differences of ideology but there shouldn't be animosity between the two sides, the President said, "Sometimes, there have been undignified incidents which are contrary to this rich tradition. You have to make an effort to forget them by considering those as an exception.

"You all have to further strengthen the rich political tradition of UP. In a democracy, there can be differences of ideology between the ruling party and the opposition but there should not be any animosity (vaimanasya) between both the sides," Kovind said.

The President said that the legislature is a temple of democracy and the lawmakers are the 'bhaagyavidhata' or those who decide the destiny. Kovind said that the people of the state have expectations from the representatives who should fulfil them.

"The ambit of your public service must contain all the citizens, whether they have voted for you or not. Hence, it is your responsibility to work in the interest of every person," he said.

The president also exuded confidence that UP will soon become "Uttam Pradesh".

"With your efforts, Uttar Pradesh will soon become Uttam Pradesh. When the largest state of the country achieves all the parameters of development, then the country's development will automatically get a backing."

Former chief minister and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav shared a picture of the joint session. “The festival of democracy should go on forever,” he tweeted. (With PTI inputs) Source : ht

This story is no less interesting than a script of an action-packed thriller. But the only relief is that the story ended on a happy note after a struggle of 22 years. Born and brought up in India and working for human rights in India only, 68-year-old Luingam Luithui is extremely happy about the fact that finally he and his wife Peingamla have once again become citizens of this country. Now this couple will be able to celebrate Christmas this year in their home town of Ukhaharul in Manipur. They will finally give up their citizenship of Canada which they had to take under compulsion in a state of despair.

His long and tough legal battle has made one thing very clear that no government can deprive a citizen of his citizenship. No matter whether that person is a member of some organisation or follower of some ideology, if he is a native of the country, then his right to citizenship cannot be taken away.

Luingam Luithui told National Herald that the pain of living away from his people and land for so long haunts him deeply but he is very happy that finally, justice has won. He said, “My faith in the Indian judiciary was re-established. Despite belonging to the state of Manipur and despite being a supporter of the Naga Movement, I won this case with the help and support of my lawyer Shomana Khanna and my young relatives. Now I will peacefully live in India. Living abroad for so many years was uncomfortable for me. I was not at ease and was always under stress lest I did something wrong. Your own country and your own people are after all your own…though I will again have to build my life from scratch…” his voice choked with emotions while saying this.

The suspense in his story still remains. On August 23rd, 2017, the Delhi High Court rebuked the Centre that no citizen can be deprived of his citizenship just like that and the citizenship of this couple was never annulled. The government could not tell the court on what basis and on which decision the government annulled the citizenship of this couple who fought for it for 22 years. It could not present any file in the court related to the confiscation of the passport of Luingam Luithui couple. That means the question why this Indian couple remained deprived of Indian passport for 22 long years still remains unanswered.

Luingam Luithui, who challenged the AFSPA in the 1990’s was always a target of the state and Central government and he was seen as someone connected with militant Naga outfits.

When this couple went to Bangkok to attend a seminar, Luithui’s wife Peingamla lost her passport. So they applied for a duplicate of the same. But they were not given the passport. The government started harassing Luingam Luithui since 1995. He was in Ottawa, Canada, when he was told by the Indian High Commission that their passport was cancelled in 1995 only and he was forced to get out from there.

He started this fight for justice after that. His nephew in India, Chingya Luithui, took it upon himself to help him out. The Central government provided only this much information that because Luingam Luithui was associated with the militant Naga organisations, hence his citizenship has been annulled. When they could get nothing more from the government, they went to the senior lawyer Shomana Khanna in 2008-09. Shomana told National Herald, “In my 23-year-long career in law, I had not seen a case like this. There was no document available. Only this could be seen clearly that the couple was a victim of sheer injustice. For three years information was drawn out only through RTI. For a year, we prepared the petition and from 2013 to 2017, we fought the case.

To what extent the government can lie and how openly it can violate the citizens’ rights - this case presents a live example of it.

Luingam Luithui’s family showed amazing courage. He has no kids of his own but his brothers’ sons fought tooth and nail to bring him back.”

Luingam Luithui’s nephew Chingya Luithui who is also the petitioner in this case toldNational Herald, “We have received a major relief by this decision of the court. We belong to the Luithui clan, where elders are given a lot of respect. And anyway, a Naga can never tolerate injustice. We have grown up fighting this case only. But now the Centre knows that it cannot do whatever it wants to the people of the northeast.”
