DIMAPUR, JUL 10 (NPN): Following the sinking of a section of the NH29 below M/s Avilie fuel depot in Kohima on the intervening night of July 7 and 8, the state government machineries have initiated massive restoration works on a war-footing. In a press release, Kohima District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) informed that clogged drainage below the affected portion of the road that posed a serious threat to further soil erosion and (Cont’d on p-7) sinking had been cleared by

the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) personnel. Two houses affected by the landslide had been dismantled by SDRF personnel and emergency relief materials were distributed to the two affected families by ADC Kohima. However, the DDMA said incessant rain was hampering the progress and pace of the work. It warned that continuous rain could trigger more landslides in the adjacent areas that were highly vulnerable and prone to landslides. Stating that fresh cut-

ting of the road by PWD (National Highways) began during the day, DDMA, however, clarified that the exact duration of time needed for completion of the work could not be ascertained at the moment as it depended on multiple factors. Until then, DDMA said total vehicular movement had been restricted in those areas. Meanwhile, the ADC appreciated land owners, affected families and colony organisations for extending their support and providing all necessary assistance to

the operation teams. The ongoing work is a collaborative effort of Kohima DDMA, Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority, PWD (NH) and Kohima district administration. Kohima correspondent adds: Speaking to Nagaland Post at the landslide area Tuesday evening, Executive Engineer PWD (NH) Vikishe Yepthomi, said road restoration works including draining of water and construction of protection structure would be able to complete in about three (Cont’d on p-7) weeks.

ANPSA shocked at arrest of Aftermath of ban on fish treated with formalin Dimapur: PAC urges NPGs Naga headmistress in UP to refrain from collection Staff Reporter

DIMAPUR, JUL 9 (NPN): Central body of All Nagaland Private Schools Association (ANPSA) has expressed shock at the arrest of Miss Akhole Puro, headmistress of Everest English School, Maharganj in Uttar Pradesh, allegedly on unsubstantiated charges. According to ANPSA, Puro was both headmistress and owner of the school and had been at Maharganj for the past 20 years running the school. Affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education, Everest School was established in 1997 and has classes up to 10. In a press release, ANPSA president Bithungo Kikon and general secretary Nini Sekhose said they had alerted National Independent Schools’ Alliance (NISA) to take up the matter and help the school and

Puro at the earliest. NISA president would be leading a delegation to Maharganj immediately for fact-finding purpose, the release added. ANPSA expressed gratitude to chief minister Neiphiu Rio for taking a personal interest in the matter and informing Union minister of state for Home Kiren Rijiju, who had assured to personally look into the case. Union Home minister Rajnath Singh had also assured the chief minister all possible help in the matter. As schools are public places accessible to a lot of people at any time, ANPSA said it was heartening to note that the government of the day had taken the matter seriously and was extending all help to solve the case and bring the perpetrators to book.

DIMAPUR, JUL 9 (NPN): Two weeks since imported fish varieties were banned after tests found they were injected with formalin, a cancer-causing chemical, to prevent deterioration, all fish stalls in various markets in Dimapur wore a deserted look. As a result of the ban by the Dimapur municipal authorities as per directives since June 25, fish consumers in the city are desperate enough to pay twice the amount for local fish varieties which are brought to the kitchens in a pot on a cycle. Taking advantage of the scarcity , local fish sellers are now selling kilogram of fishes from local fishery ponds for not less than Rs.200 . Customers desperate for

fish have no option but to cough out Rs.200 for a kilogram of local fish. A kilogram of fish (smaller sized fish) is sold for about Rs.100 or more . A kilo of boal or bacha fish which was earlier sold for Rs.150 is now sold for Rs.220 . At new market, there was a solitary stall selling fresh local fish for over Rs.200 per kg. When Nagaland Post spoke to a person whose family eats fish at least thrice a week, he said the scarcity has left them with little choice but to have fish only once a week. The fish available is locally grown and supplied at doorstep. When contacted Administrator DMC Moa Sangtam said the Municipal Council has no power to lift or impose ban because it is a

consequence of laboratory test for formalin conducted by the medical department. He also said that local fish were still sold but local fish sellers are not allowed to increase the price on their own and assured that corrective action will be made by DMC. Sangtam further informed Nagaland Post that the samples collected by DMC from New Market and Railway bazaar on June 25 were rejected by the mobile testing lab as they were not submitted by a Food and Safety Officer. He said DMC was asked to pay Rs 1000 each per fish sample but the testing could not be completed as the fish became rotten so Rs.7000 was returned to the DMC on July 9.

DIMAPUR, JUL 10 (NPN): Public Action Committee (PAC) comprising of Naga Council Dimapur (NCD), Naga Women Hoho Dimapur (NWHD), Urban colony Chairmen Federation, Dimapur (UCCFD), Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industries (DCCI), Dimapur Sardar GB union and Presidents of 19 tribal Hohos have resolved to appeal all Naga political groups (NPGs) to restrain from all forms of collection within Dimapur district and to uphold their declaration to cease tax collection. In a press release, PAC convenor, Vekhosayi Nyekha, and co-convenor, K Ghokheto Chophy, said the committee held a meeting on July 10, 2018 at Naga council office to deliberate on the exorbitant and random collection in the name of tax collection prevailing in and around Dimapur. They said the house also (Cont’d on p-7) resolved to call upon all Naga

political groups to unify under one platform to pave the way for an early solution to the prolonged Naga political issues. The meeting also deliberated on working out means for “symbolic ration collection” as practised earlier. Further, the house reaffirmed public resolution taken on October 31, 2013 and to stand by “one government, one tax”. The meeting decided to further restrict all forms of collection/multiple taxations/ syndicate & dealership fees within Dimapur district, which was being “randomly collected by agencies or in the name of underground groups causing untold harassment to business community and giving way to price rise in the market.” Meanwhile, PAC has appealed to the Dimapur district competent authority to be vigilant and take action in curbing antisocial elements prevailing in and around Dimapur.

NE Govs, CMs disapprove Centre’s decision to stop new schemes PDR alleges backdoor appointments in Tourism dept; demands action


SHILLONG, JUL 10: Governors and Chief Ministers of the North Eastern states have expressed their disapproval of the BJP-led NDA government’s decision to put on hold new schemes funded through the North Eastern Council (NEC). Union Finance ministry through its Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC) had last year decided to stop projects under Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR), following which, the Union cabinet gave its approval on March 28 this year to introduce a new scheme called “Northeast Special Infrastructure Development Schemes (NESIDS)” in the place of NLCPR. “All governors and chief ministers have expressed their concern as to why last year’s sanctions for projects were stopped or kept in abeyance,” NEC Secretary Ram Muivah told journalists on the concluding day of the Council plenary

meet here in Meghalaya. The plenary meeting, considered to be the highest decision making authority, chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who is also the ex-officio chairman of NEC was attended by governors and chief ministers of the NE. “Some decision has been taken at the plenary in this regard, and the Project Identification Committee (PIC) with DoNER secretary as chairman, will hold its meeting within this month to further discuss the matter,” Muivah said. CMs of Mizoram- Lal Thanhawla, Nagaland- Neiphiu Rio, Meghalaya- Conrad K. Sangma and Arunachal PradeshPema Khandu had appealed to Singh to review the decision to put on hold developmental projects sanctioned by NEC, the regional planning body, to meet the development needs of the region. Thanhawla had said the Centre’s move has undermined the autonomy of the NEC, a statutory body created through the NEC Act, 1971.

Muivah said the PIC was constituted, and in that meeting, it was stated that although the Union cabinet has given approval on March 28 this year on the introduction of new scheme (NESIDS), but whatever sanctions given last year for projects, have to be reviewed by the PIC. Under the new scheme (NESIDS), the Centre through the ministry of DoNER has assured to fund 100 per cent for projects, not like the earlier funding pattern of 90:10, (90 per cent by the Centre and 10 per cent by the respective states). However, the NEC members were not happy with the new scheme (NESIDS) on the ground that the Centre would earmarked only around Rs 1,600 crore, whereas for projects sanctioned under NLCPR on 90:10 funding, the total amount for projects would come to almost Rs 40,000 crore. Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio said the decision of the Expenditure Finance Committee to put on hold all

the new projects sanctioned from April 2017 onwards may not prove beneficial in the long run since the North Eastern states, particularly Nagaland, with meagre resources, look to the NEC and DoNER to come to supplement their resources to implement important projects and programs, “The projects sanctioned during 2017-18 were meticulously selected by the State as priority and were also retained and sanctioned by NEC after thorough scrutiny... If the projects are to be put on hold, it will eventually lead to cost escalation which is not admissible under NEC guidelines. Further, it may attract litigation from various quarters,” Rio said. “These decision of the DoNER ministry and the NEC led to a sense of disquiet among the NE states and has disheartened the state government departments who have spent considerable time, effort and money in the preparation of DPRs,” Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma said.

DIMAPUR, JUL 10 (NPN): People for Democratic Rights (PDR) on Tuesday alleged that the Tourism department, after flouting all government norms, made backdoor appointments of two tourist officers on June 4, 2016; three tourist assistants on December 6, 2017 and two tourist assistants on April 19, 2018. According to acting chairman of PDR, Ihoto Shohe the entry point in the department was Tourist Assistant, which should be recruited through NPSC. However, PDR alleged that the department had superseded the cabinet memo order no. CAB/2/2013 dated 12 May 2016 banning all temporary and contract appointments. Further, PDR claimed that of the seven appointments, two tourist officers and four tourist assistants were children of officers in the Tourism department. In this regard, PDR has asked the state government to immediately cancel all such backdoor/illegal appointments.

It said that the appointment of seven persons “on temporary basis on pick and choose policy without recruiting through the NPSC” had resulted in eligible candidates being denied the right of equal opportunity. It further cautioned that the forum would expose bigger lapses and misuse of office by those officers in department. PDR has also warned of legal recourse against those erring officers involved in the appointment process if the Government failed to take befitting action against them for misuse of office. Meanwhile, PDR expressed dismay that the Legal Metrology and Consumer Protection department has failed to make public its response with regard to its statement published on June 18 last. Therefore, PDR has reminded LMCP department to publish its response in the local dailies after which PDR said it would respond and take necessary steps as deemed fit. K Y M C

Somebody killed my daughter for money and dumped her in the toilet,” the girl’s mother said. “It is difficult to say anything at this moment. An autopsy will confirm whether the girl was raped before her murder,” said a police officer.

I tanaga r , J u l 1 0 (PTI): Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has sought help from North East Council (NEC) for developing connectivity, especially roads, in the state. Attending a two-day 67th plenary session of NEC at Shillong in Meghalaya yesterday, Khandu said that Arunachal has been lagging behind in most of the socio-economic indicators as compared to the rest of India and even within the Northeast region due to historical neglect, an official release said. “I request the NEC to give more emphasis on connectivity, especially the roads sector,” Khandu said in his address. Pointing out that Arunachal Pradesh has the lowest density of road network in the North Eastern Region, the chief minister said, on the lines of Central Road Fund, NEC could explore the possibility of forming a separate fund focusing on big road projects in the region. Pointing out that construction of the Trans-Arunachal Highway project

He added that during a meeting with Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on February 28 this year, it was decided to split the Potin-Pangin stretch in realistic sections to complete the work immediately. On air connectivity, he said, Our dream of having an airport in the state capital is yet to come true and the people of the state are eagerly waiting for this project to materialize. “I would like to inform all that my government has finalized the site of the greenfield airport at Hollongi and has reduced the cost of land acquisition and rehabilitation drastically by one-third of the original cost.” He urged the DoNER Ministry to provide funds for the Greenfield Airport at Hollongi over and above its normative allocation of Rs 195.90 crore in the line of Tezu Airport (which is ready for operation) funded by NEC.

Responding to the Assam chief minister’s call, the CMs and Governors of the region on Tuesday seconded the Sonowal’s suggestion and agreed to work together and deal with the serious issue together. Talking to newsmen, Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday said that when it

comes to security concerns it is not linked to any particular organisation but all the northeastern states need to work together when it comes to sharing of information and inputs and NEC is the right platform.

She further said that if there are any such movements, she will ask her Chief Minister to oppose it and take care of it.

Check for formalin-laced fish in Manipur Correspondent

IMPHAl, Jul 10: Manipur fishery department has stationed its officials and staff at border gates to check fishes imported from outside the state.

Guwahati, Jul 10 (Agencies): People sitting in Assam may very soon get the live streaming of the ongoing National Register of Citizen (NRC) case in the Supreme Court, reports Northeast Now. If everything goes well, the live streaming may start off with one court as a pilot project and then it could be extended to the rest of its courts. A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said if they go for live-streaming then it would start off with one court as a pilot project and then be extended to the rest of its courts.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, the petitioner in the matter had sought only live streaming of cases of national importance like constitutional bench matters but the Attorney General K K Venugopal favoured the telecast of all except rape and matrimonial cases. The apex court now has sought ‘comprehensive and holistic guidelines’ from Attorney General Venugopal. Venugopal, however, told the court that the government would set up a dedicated channel on the lines of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha TV, if the court decided to go for live telecast of its proceedings.

were banned for 10 days beginning today.

Reflections on roads

t is not as simple as it sounded- the promise made by the newly installed Progressive Democratic Alliance (PDA) to do up all deteriorated roads in Nagaland within 60 days of coming to power. The 60 days since March 8,2018 ended on May 8,2018 but all the roads, especially the state and national highways are still in dilapidated condition. One must however admit that roads in urban towns have been done up and to great relief of pedestrians, motorists and public. One of the factors that has come in the way of a road revolution after the fanfare and fun during the heydays of ‘road shows’ was that the roads come under various departments such as - PWD (Highways Division) which looks after nation and state highways; NPWD (R&B) which looks after major roads in districts; Rural Development department which looks after roads in villages and Municipal or Town Councils which look after roads in towns etc. That means that a minuscule section of the roads especially falling under Municipal and Town Councils may have received some touch up while the rest are yet to experience ‘the change’. Be that as it may, there is also more to it than the blamegame where public are always eager and ready to blast any government on account of moral responsibility. It is a fact that roads are not built to last forever but they can last as long as they are properly constructed and cared for by the departments and the public. One of the problems that confronts the need for good roads in Nagaland is corruption and encroachment of roadsides by vested interests. Corruption at various levels of the government have robbed people of many good projects meant for their benefits. When at least 60% of funds is siphoned off by cuts and extortions, the contractor will have hardly 40% left with which to complete the project. Corruption results in adversely affecting the quality for road construction because of cost cutting necessitated by drastic squeeze on profits after paying at various levels. In this way, corruption has adversely affected the quality and workmanship of road construction. Also when public encroach upon road reservation areas, it also restricts further growth by preventing construction of much needed roadside drains to protect the roads. Without drains, flooded rain water percolates into the inner layers of the road carpet and gradually loosens the mixture to the affected portion. As traffic drives over the weakened area, the bitumen layer along with carpet begins to crack and a crater or pothole is formed. This continues until the damaged area causes more erosions to the nearby areas and we have more craters and roads without bitumen cover etc. which eventually mark Nagaland with its deplorable roads. Rain is one of bitumen’s worst enemies and it challenges the quality and workmanship of work. The other cause is the washing of vehicles on roadsides which also contribute to quick wear and tear. Bad roads such as those in Nagaland (and now also in Assam and other states) not only add to misery to the travellers but also exact huge cost in terms of loss of hours , damages to vehicles and adversely affect health conditions of the travellers. The government of India gives money and it is for the people to ensure that they get the roads they desire.

DailyDevotion The Spiritually Lazy Saint Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together… —Hebrews 10:24-25 We are all capable of being spiritually lazy saints. We want to stay off the rough roads of life, and our primary objective is to secure a peaceful retreat from the world. The ideas put forth in these verses from Hebrews 10 are those of stirring up one another and of keeping ourselves together. Both of these require initiative— our willingness to take the first step toward Christ-realization, not the initiative toward self-realization. To live a distant, withdrawn, and secluded life is diametrically opposed to spirituality as Jesus Christ taught it. The true test of our spirituality occurs when we come up against injustice, degradation, ingratitude, and turmoil, all of which have the tendency to make us spiritually lazy. While being tested, we want to use prayer and Bible reading for the purpose of finding a quiet retreat. We use God only for the sake of getting peace and joy. We seek only our enjoyment of Jesus Christ, not a true realization of Him. This is the first step in the wrong direction. All these things we are seeking are simply effects, and yet we try to make them causes. “Yes, I think it is right,” Peter said, “…to stir you up by reminding you…” (2 Peter 1:13). It is a most disturbing thing to be hit squarely in the stomach by someone being used of God to stir us up— someone who is full of spiritual activity. Simple active work and spiritual activity are not the same thing. Active work can actually be the counterfeit of spiritual activity. The real danger in spiritual laziness is that we do not want to be stirred up— all we want to hear about is a spiritual retirement from the world. Yet Jesus Christ never encourages the idea of retirement— He says, “Go and tell My brethren…” (Matthew 28:10).


Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. ~ Peter Drucker


N autocrat can really unhinge a democratic system. This is what President Donald Trump is doing. But he is also turning into an imperialist power. India has had a good understanding with America and the two democracies, one the strongest and the other the largest, have ambled their way through in the chaotic world. President Trump has reportedly asked India to stop importing oil from Iran. New Delhi has explained that India has reportedly told Washington that it has entered into a long-term tieup to import oil from Iran because it assured a regular supply and at a comparatively cheaper price. This understanding between India and America has been suddenly disturbed by Trump who cancelled the talks between the US Secretary of State and Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj. This type of pressure has naturally annoyed New Delhi. But it believed that the talks between the two countries would iron out the differences. Yet, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke to Sushma Swaraj to express his regret and deep disappointment at the US having

Drift in India US relations

to postpone the 2+2 dialogue for unavoidable reasons. He also sought Indian foreign minister’s understanding and they mutually agreed to identify convenient dates to hold the dialogue at the earliest. However, there was no formal word from Washington on the development which occurred as the visiting US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, who held talks with top Indian leaders on a wide range of issues. Yet, it became very clear when a senior State Department official indicated that there would be no waivers on what the US intended doing on Iran. Apart from passing the message on to its allies in Europe and Asia, an intraagency team of state and treasury department officials are scheduled visit India, China and other countries in the coming weeks to sell their way of thinking. For some years, Iran and India have established an understanding where the oil diplomacy did not dictate a particular line. The two have signed a long-term agreement on the supply of oil in exchange of goods that India produced. Although America had imposed sanctions against Iran earlier, it

could not persuade India to severe relations with Iran. Things were left at that. Now Trump wants his words to prevail. Among significant areas of bilateral cooperation in the field of oil and gas, the India and Iran had formulated a joint mechanism to promote broad-based cooperation. The two sides had also agreed to explore opKuldip por tunities for cooperation in defence in agreed areas, including training and exchange of visits. According to the agreement, the India-Iran defence cooperation is not aimed against any third country. They had also agreed to make concerted efforts to encourage bilateral trade and economic cooperation. This involved boosting non-oil trade and investment in infrastructure projects including the development of Chahbahar port complex, ChahbaharFahraj-Bam railway link and marine oil tanking terminal at an agreed location, as well as Iranian interests to invest and participate in infrastructure projects in India. New Delhi has to look after its own interests. It has accommodated Washington like cutting off imports from

Iran. But it cannot go beyond this because it would hurt India. President Trump in a joint statement with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, following their first meeting at the White House, made terrorism the cornerstone of mutual cooperation between the two countries. The statement went beyond the usual American position and while criticising Pakistan it Nayar also echoed Indian concerns regarding the Chinese-led Belt and Road Initiative. Trump, recalling his election campaign, said that he had pledged true friendship with India. “I pledged that if elected, India would have a true friend in the White House. And that is now exactly what you have, a true friend…I am thrilled to salute you, Prime Minister Modi, and the Indian people for all that you are accomplishing together. Your accomplishments have been vast,” said Trump. According to the social media, the President also described Prime Minister Modi and himself as “world leaders”. It has enabled them to directly hear from their citizens. In the past, India had

friendly presidents in John F Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama. But they did very little to help New Delhi in its strategic and development requirements. They were obsessed with the thought that they should not in any way rub Pakistan on the wrong side. New Delhi never wanted them to do anything which would mean a tilt towards it. But President Trump had departed from the past American policy. The resolve of the two countries to strengthen anti-terror cooperation has come as a big diplomatic win for New Delhi and a big blow for Islamabad which was trying to portray the Hizbul militants as “freedom fighters.” In his individual remark, President Trump said: “The security partnership between the US and India is incredibly important. Both our nations have been struck by the evils of terrorism and we are both determined to destroy terrorist organizations and the radical ideology which drives them. We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism.” The two leaders seemed to have forged a lasting friendship that President Trump himself took Modi

on a guided tour of the White House besides sending his daughter, Ivanka, to India for a meeting. On his part Modi, with President Trump standing beside him, declared that America was India’s primary partner for “its social and economic transformation.” All these augured well, one thought. But the recent developments suggest to a different American stance. On his first meeting with the US President, Modi had played the Trump card cleverly. With his party BJP already well entrenched in India and spreading its wings in rest of states, what Modi wants now is a full international recognition. None could have been better than a cordial relationship with America, particularly at a time when China has been openly siding with Pakistan. Prime Minister Modi or, for that matter, the BJP cannot ignore this and take a soft line on the US in view of the impending general elections next year in India. Modi believes that a stern face would go down well with the electorate. Whether this is right or wrong reading will be known only after the general election in India.



Mission enrichment and mission empowerment

uccessful mission organizations don’t do different mission works; they do missions differently. It is a high time for us to bring changes in our approach to missions. A lot has been done by the churches and parachurch organizations in India and beyond. Yet there are still a lot to do and we are just scratching the surface. I’m not trying to cast blame, but it is a kind of a wake-up call for us to get the work of an evangelist done in our generation. It will not be right to infer that the churches in northeast India are doing nothing. Instead, a lot is being done. Missionaries are being sent to unreached areas, and churches are being planted in the midst of radical Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists. There is a great potential for believers in northeast India to reach other Indian people groups and the un-reached nations around them. There is no doubt that they are doing a lot to reach the dying world for Christ. However, the question is still: How can we do more? We have all kinds of resources available at hand including tremendous human resources. Yet, things will not come easily for us. Nevertheless, if we do the following two things in our mission approaches, I have a strong belief and confidence that we will surely see the twenty-first century missionary nucleus explode. Therefore, we must clearly understand the Mission Enrichment”” and “Mission Empowerment”. I. Mission Enrichment: What is Mission Enrichment? My own definition of mission enrichment is ‘an education in mission’. There are many missionaries and missiological studies that are available for mission education purposes. However, when it comes to missions, it is important to think in a very practical missional way in the context of a particular native and national setting. East or west, certain infrastructures and cultures may be different, but the same biblical principles necessarily apply. First of all, we must always build our foundations on the solid rock, the Bible. Seminars on Missions in the context of the indigenous people is paramount. A lot of mission seminars were done by many great speakers and leaders. Yet, this new approach to missions is a very practical and it offers people to get involves in the matter. I am not suggesting that we should do different things, but our missions approach must be different without

compromising the biblical truth. Successful missionaries don’t do different things on mission fields, but they do things differently. Therefore, my approach to the churches in the Northeast is to do the same things, but do them differently, in concert with the local culture and needs. Most of the people of Northeast India are so-called Christians. The need of the hour is biblical revival. Revival will only take place if we preach the biblical message. No doubt there are missionminded churches but at the same time those churches which are literally dying due to non-missional activities and a need to be revived. I strongly believe that a lot of churches in northeast India are dying due to non-missional messages. The general public seems to understand the time in which they are living. However, biblical missional preaching for revival is lacking. Therefore, it is a high time for us to do things differently. It is a very important for us to ask questions, such as: “What have we done? “ “Why are we still here?” “What are the new steps for us to take now?” “Are we doing the same things which other people are already doing for a long time?” “Can we bring new changes and approaches without changing the biblical truth?” “How can we do things differently?” Thus, the questions are on and on, as an introspection and reflection to see our approach to mission. People have heard the messages on missions, and they also know that it is important to give to missions. But people need to know why they should give to missions? They need to know from a very practical point of view why they should involve themselves in missions. Enough has been preached and taught about missions, but little results or outcomes are evident. People may believe they understand missions, but I think they don’t since important and practical parts of the teaching are still lacking. Therefore, the Mission Enrichment will clear the air about missions. If church members will come to attend the two-days mission Enrichment and Mission Empowerment program, their missions paradigm will be changed. If local church leaders will invite us to present the two-day Missions Seminar, your understanding about biblical missional and contextual approach will be changed. We want to approach the subject differently.


On UGC Bill 2018

he Government of India has proposed a bill introducing Higher Education Commission of India (Repeal of UGC) Bill 2018 with deep implications and serious consequences. The MHRD made public the proposed the HECI Bill on 27th June, 2018 and set the deadline for 7th July, 2018 to send in the responses. A mere 11 days for discussion, is too short a time to posit any serious and formidable critique to the bill, from various stakeholders such as Teachers, Students and parents, who ultimately would be affected by this legislation. All of us are aware that a bill with far reaching consequences certainly need more time to be discussed in the public domain. And what is more mysterious is this – Why this hurry. The bill is introduced to raise the quality of higher education but the way the bill is designed and introduced itself is a challenge to the quality of the bill. The draft bill has faulted on number of vital areas of quality. The Bill is ambiguous on several counts. It fails to provide a clear-cut section on “definitions” that clarify what the legislation means by “quality”; “less government and more governance”; “affordability” etc and these are vital issues that can be interpreted and misinterpreted at will. UGC, as a premiere body has been serving us for the last 60 years to provide quality education. It is also a concern that when the times group made a study and selected 200 best universities, our country did not figure in the list in spite of the fact that we are a country that rank third with the number of universities. We certainly have reasons to be concerned. Instead of replacing the UGC with HECI, (Higher Education Commission of India) what we need is strengthening the structural and procedural aspects of the UGC. And make it relevant and effective to serve the Higher Education sector. The proposal to dissolve the UGC is premature and replacing it with the HECI provides room for distortions and arbitrariness in promotion of quality education. The UGC as a premier body is a body of intellectuals meant for intellectuals and so what is needed is to

strengthen the structural and procedural aspects of the UGC. The bill has proposed to diversify quality control and grant control which the UGC was dealing with so far with considerable amount of consistency. The Bill is creating a dichotomy by assigning quality control to HECI, and grant control to MHRD with the intention of centralizing the system of distribution of fund. And it will certainly lead to arbitrariness in the distribution of funds. Education is a concurrent subject and why the legislative autonomy is centralized it should be more consultative, deliberative and democratic? And the state should be consulted. The UGC had clear and detailed norms for fixing the fee and making education accessible and affordable. Bur Section 15(4) empowers HECI to specify norms and process for fixing the fee and advice the government on the procedure to be followed. It is arbitrary and not acceptable. By the section 24the HECI is doing away with any trace of autonomy by the presence of a government-controlled advisory organ in the Commission, headed by the HRD Minister, and puts all pretensions of legislative autonomy to the higher education sector to rest and structurally subordinates higher education to the political intentions of the government of the day. And this should never be permitted. Ref: Section 15(3) (a): The existing reservation system for the SC/ST/OBC and the linking of quality aspect to the higher educational institution suffer from structural defects. The system would not be geared to take into account the deprivation factor that the community has been confronted with. The HECI Bill does not provide a “weighted formulae” to uniformly assess the issue of quality across social classes. It is an injustice to the marginalized and the poor sections of the society. In Conclusion as the old saying goes: If you have a head ache, you will not get the head cut off. Rev. Dr. Sebastian Ousepparampil M.A., M.P.H., PhD., Principal, St. Josephs College, Jakhama

II. Mission Empowerment : What is Mission Empowerment? By mission empowerment I simply mean it is important to hand over the mission responsibilities to the nationals and the local church leadership, so that the nationals will feel the belonging and ownership of the works. In the past there are many incidents where we learnt that the mission works are being done by the foreigners and owned by the foreigners. There are several stories being told about the foreign missionaries who are frustrated and discouraged due to little or no growth in the national churches and missions. One of my friends from the United States worked as a missionary church planter for about five years in Africa. He told me that his church attendance was running four to five hundred every Sunday. But soon after he left, the ministry went down to zero. There isn’t any ministry going on in that same place where huge amounts of the Lord’s funds were used and wasted in the name of missions in Africa. Another missionary couple worked in Portugal as missionary church planters, but today nothing is there as a result of their hard work that they have put into it. They were sincerely doing everything in the context of an American church in the foreign lands. This missionary couple told me that they never trusted and entrusted the nationals to take the baton and run with it. Mission work done in the foreigners’ context is wrong and it cannot be easily accepted by the nationals. Learn to empower the works and responsibilities to the nationals. Therefore, sending missionaries should also be done by the local churches. In the context of Northeast India, identity crisis is a huge hindrance for missionary movements. The tribals are mostly indigenous people. They are Christians yet still fighting for their identities. Sir, Tribal people can be very selfThis is to draw the benign attention of your esteemed authority for necescentered people.

Vadodara airport to switch to solar power soon

Aftermath of ban on fish treated with formalin

Delhi, Mumbai getting buried under garbage but govt does nothing: SC

The Solid Waste Management Rules came into force on or about April 8, 2016 but more than two-third of the States and UTs in the country have not yet complied with the basic requirement of the laid rules.

New Delhi, Jul 10 (AGENCIES): New Delhi is getting buried under mounds of garbage and Mumbai is sinking under water, but the government is doing nothing, an anguished Supreme Court said on Tuesday. It slapped fines on 10 states and two union territories for not filing their affidavits on their policies for solid waste management strategy. Expressing its helplessness over the situation, the top court lamented that when the courts intervene, the judges are attacked for judicial activism, and said what can be done when government of the day does

not do anything or acts in an irresponsible manner. A bench of Justices MB Lokur and Deepak Gupta referred to the recent apex court order on the powers of the Delhi government and Lieutenant Governor and asked them to inform it by tomorrow who was responsible for clearing of the three “mountains of garbage” (landfill sites) at Okhla, Bhalswa and Ghazipur in the national capital. “You see, Delhi is getting buried under mountain loads of garbage and Mumbai is sinking. But yet, the government does not do anything. When the courts intervene, we are at-

tacked for judicial activism. We are given lectures on separation of powers and encroachment of jurisdiction,” it said. The bench was annoyed after it was informed that around 13 states and several Union Territories have not yet formulated their policy for solid waste management strategy. The top court slapped a fine of Rs one lakh each on Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, West Bengal, Kerala, Karnataka, Meghalaya, Punjab, Lakshadweep and Puducherry for not filing the affidavit despite earlier directions. The bench also slapped a fine of Rs two lakh each on “remaining defaulting states/UTs” whose lawyers were also not present in the court room during the hearing, without naming these states. “One final opportunity is given to these States/ UTs to comply with the laws governing India, failing which we may have to call the Chief Secretary of the concerned States/UTs to inform us why the laws governing India are not

applicable to these States/ UTs,” it said and posted the matter for further hearing on August 7. It said that the costs should be deposited within two weeks from Tuesday with the Supreme Court Legal Services Committee for being used on juvenile justice issues. “The tragedy is that more than two-thirds of the States/UTs in the country have neither bothered to comply with the orders passed by the Court, nor bothered to comply with the directions given by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEF). This is not only a tragic state of affairs but a shocking state of affairs, particularly since solid waste management is a huge problem in this country,” the bench said. “Every second day, we are attacked for judicial activism. Every now and then there is a statement that courts are resorting to judicial activism or encroaching upon the powers of the executive or the legislature. What should be do when nobody is working,” it said.

Vadodara, Jul 10 (PTI): The Vadodara airport will soon switch over to solar energy for its everyday operations to cut down its electricity cost, a senior airport official said. “The airport is all set to start using clean and green energy for its day to day operations, as its ground-mounted gridconnected solar plant is ready for commissioning,” Vadodara airport director Charan Singh told PTI. The solar plant will meet 50 per cent requirement of the airport, he said. The power will be sourced from a plant located in the airport complex, having a capacity to generate 675 kilowatt (kw) of power, which will help the airport save around Rs 60 lakh every year on its electricity cost, he added. “The Airports Authority of India (AAI) hasinstalled thissolar plant for which the contract worth Rs 3.5 crore was awarded to a private company. It will generate 675 kw of electricity, and also cut the annual electricity cost by around Rs 5 lakh per month,” said Singh.

Health and Family Welfare has appealed to all citizens of Nagaland to extend support in its future plans of action to mitigate the serious issue of unsafe food. In a press release, state programme officer (SPO) food safety cell, expressed gratitude for the positive response from various departments and organisations of different districts including individuals in the ongoing food safety drive. It stated that the drive was initiated as an urgent measure to ensure safe and healthy food in the market for public consumption. Towards this cause, SPO said certain food have been tested Food safety authority items through proper scientific appeals citizens methods. SPO pointed Food Safety Cell un- out that during the drives der the Department of it was confirmed that “not (From p-1) Nagaland Post also spoke to the Food Safety officer of Dimapur, Sendongkaba Jamir, who disclosed that the ban was not for all fishes but only against those injected with formalin. When asked about the future course of action , he said the government was yet to decide. Nagaland Post also tried contacting the Chief Medical Officer but he could not be reached. Imported fishes are also banned in all other districts of Nagaland. The ban has also been imposed in Assam on all imported fish varieties.

safe food” proliferated into state market consequentially exposing the public to serious health hazards. Despite tough challenges faced during the drives, the food safety cell said it could receive strong support from various departments, organisations and individuals. “The continuation and success of this cause relies much on the concerted and unflinching commitment from all stakeholders towards making Nagaland Food Safe State and not a dumping ground of unsafe adulterated food,” food safety cell stated. The department assured that it would do its best to ensure all types of food items available in the market were safe and healthy for human consumption.

Road to ‘New India’ through...

(From p-1) to NE states in improving Police infrastructure, Singh asked the chief ministers to capitalise on the prevailing peaceful scenario to improve the law and order situation and strengthen policing in the region. There is also a need for revival of North Eastern Regional Agricultural Marketing Corporation

Limited (NERAMAC) for marketing of agriculture produce. The North Eastern Region Community Resource Management Project (NERCORMP) with the Self Help Groups can extend help in this effort to increase the income and employment generation in the region,” he said. Singh said that there

will be a mutual coordination between the state governments and the Centre to find out the cause as to why there has been no desired investment in the region. Singh also directed the chief ministers’ and senior officials of the region to complete the Central projects implemented in their respective states in a time-frame manner.

Chhindwara (MP), Jul 10 (PTI): A 14-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped twice in a span of 24 hours here, police said today. Five men have been arrested in the case. The girl left her house on the evening of July 6, and when she did not return, a complaint was lodged at the Kundipura Police Station the next day, said Additional Superintendent of Police Niraj Soni. Police found the girl wandering in a disoriented state in Mahua Tola area here on July 8, he said. She told police that one Mohit Bharadwaj (22) persuaded her to go with him on his motorbike to the house of Rahul Bhonde (24), where both of them raped her, the ASP said. The duo let her go the next day. When she was returning home, three more men, identified as Bunty Bhalavi (23), Ankit Raghuvanshi (25) and Amit Vishwakarma (21) accosted her, took her back to Bhonde’s house, and allegedly raped her, he said. Police formed a special team to search for the accused which nabbed all five of them, the ASP said. The accused have been booked under IPC sections 376 (D) (gang-rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), 363 (kidnapping), 342 (wrongful confinement) and also under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

lishing answer keys. How can a board at the national level be uncertain about the answers, it asked. “The difficulty of a student taking the examination of such importance in understanding rightly a wrong question, be however so mild error is to be appreciated lacing ourselves in his shoes and not in the shoes of those having the leisure of easy chair reflection,” the judges said. The court also questioned as to why private students are not eligible to apply for NEET.


(From p-1) Pointing out that ensuring peace in Nagaland was not only the responsibility of the people living there, but also of the Central and State governments, ENPO explained that for this reason people of the area yearned for initiation of peace talks. The memorandum hoped that Modi would display his great magnanimity and dynamic leadership in taking a bold step to promote peace, security and harmony among the people and end the conflict between security forces and militants in the region that had cost many precious lives on both sides. ENPO appealed to the Prime Minister to take a pragmatic view of the problem so as to stop the cycle of violence. And if the violence was not checked in time, it cautioned that there could be more violence in the region in the future.

It also directed the CBSE to revise the list of qualified candidates and publish the same afresh. However the court said that it was left to the authorities concerned to go about with counselling for the eligible MBBS candidates.

The national capital scored 121 hits on the reform scorecard and was slipped up on 235 initiatives. The city government had reported 34 per cent compliance of the reforms. But the surveyed businesses said the city government, which has been engaged in a tug-of-war with the Lieutenant Governor for three years, had done much less. 17 states have achieved a reform evidence score of more than 90 per cent and 15 have achieved a combined score of 90 per cent and more. “The states which have achieved 80 per cent or more reforms evidence score represent 84 per cent of the country’s area, 90 per cent of the country’s population and 79 per cent of India’s GDP,” the government said.


ces closed with gains, led by energy, realty and telecom counters. Financial services conglomerate HDFC Group saw the market capitalisation of its listed firms cross the Rs 10 lakh crore mark, making it only the second Indian business house after Tatas to achieve this feat. The 30-share Sensex opened strong and hit a high of 36,274.33 before finally ending at 36,239.62, up 304.90 points or 0.85 per cent. It has now gained


back from businesses. “This time we have taken feedback from industry to see whether the reforms are percolated to the ground level,” Ramesh Abhishek, secretary of the department of industrial policy and promotion said. Next year, he said, states would only be evaluated based on feedback from the industry. “A large number of states have made significant progress in reforms suggested in BRAP 2017,” the government said. Delhi wasn’t one of them. It has slipped four slots from the 19 to 23 rank, with 32 per cent marks. Uttar Pradesh (93 per cent), Bihar (82 per cent) and militancy-hit Jammu and Kashmir (33 per cent) had scored better than Delhi with 32 per cent marks.

MUMBAI, JUL 10 (PTI): Rising for the third day, the BSE Sensex surged 305 points to recapture the 36,000-level while the NSE Nifty closed well above 10,900 today as participants wagered on robust corporate earnings. Indices raced to over five-month highs on the back of unabated buying by domestic institutional investors and a good set of corporate results so far, brokers said. Barring BSE Healthcare, all other sectoral indi-

665.07 points in three sessions. The benchmark is just a tad lower from its all-time closing high of 36,283.25 hit on January 29 this year. Similarly, the 50-share NSE Nifty climbed 94.35 points, or 0.87 per cent, to end at 10,947.25. Intraday, it shuttled between 10,956.90 and 10,876.65. The Sensex and Nifty remained above their key levels of 36,000 and 10,900 throughout the session, indicating strong investor optimism after a prolonged spell of caution. Auto stocks spurted after data showed that passenger vehicle sales in India rose by 37.54 per cent in June, the fastest monthly growth in nearly ten years. TCS dipped 0.56 per cent ahead of its Junequarter results. Meanwhile, domestic institutional investors (DIIs) picked up shares worth a net Rs 740.39 crore yesterday, while foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) offloaded equities to the tune of Rs 569.91 crore, provisional data showed.

NEW DELHI, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): Andhra Pradesh has topped a list of states in the new Ease of Doing Business rankings, released by the government today. Andhra Pradesh’s neighbour Telangana, also the country’s newest state, has been ranked number two in the list, reports NDTV. Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) in collaboration with the World Bank conducts an annual reform exercise for all States/UTs under the Business Reform Action Plan (BRAP). The assessment under the BRAP 2017 is based on a combined score consisting of reform evidence score that is based on evidence uploaded by States/UTs and feedback score that is based on response garnered from the actual users of the services provided to the businesses. Haryana and Jharkhand have moved up three slots each, to be ranked third and fourth in the state rankings. Gujarat has slid two slots to the fifth position. The other states that make up the top nine, described as the top achievers, are Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Rajasthan. States have been ranked on how well they have implemented 405 business reforms initiatives identified by the centre and the feed-

MUMBAI, JUL 10 (PTI): Gold prices tumbled by Rs 280 per 10 grams at the bullion market here today, in line with a weak trend overseas and easing demand from local jewellers. Silver followed suit by declining Rs 555 to Rs 39,105 per kg on poor offtake by industrial units. Standard gold (99.5 purity) fell by Rs 280 to end at Rs 30,370 per 10 grams from Monday’s level of Rs 30,650. Pure gold (99.9 purity) also moved down by a similar margin to close at Rs 30,520 per 10 grams as compared to Rs 30,800 previously. Silver (.999 fineness) dropped by Rs 555 per kg to finish at Rs 39,105 as against Rs 39,660. Globally, gold headed lower, weighed down by a stronger dollar, and may re-test a seven-month low after a failed attempt to break higher in the previous session. Spot gold was down 0.3 per cent at USD 1,253.60 an ounce at early trade. In other precious metals, silver fell 0.5 per cent to USD 16.00 an ounce.

The rupee opened on a weak note at 68.78 against previous close of 68.72 at the interbank foreign exchange market. It moved to a low of 68.85 per dollar in day trade before closing at 68.82 per dollar, showing a loss of 10 paise or 0.15 per cent over the previous close. Financial Benchmarks I n d i a P r iva t e L i m i t e d (FBIL), which today took over from RBI the responsibility of computation and dissemination of reference rate for USD/INR and other major currencies, fixed the reference rate at 68.7942 for dollar and 80.780 for euro. In the cross currency trade, the rupee traded flat against the euro to settle at 80.53/55.


Gold plunges Rs 280 on weak global cues

-- yesterday, recovered by 0.33 per cent to 94.38 on positive US jobs data. Back home, retail inflation worries weighed on the rupee sentiment. “Rupee depreciated and bond yield rose in expectation of increase in June CPI inflation,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services Ltd, said.

The 10-year benchmark yield edged up to 7.90 per cent from 7.89 per cent yesterday. Sustained capital outflows also continued to haunt the rupee sentiment. Foreign investors have pulled out more than Rs 3,500 crore from equity and debt markets in the previous two sessions, provisional data showed. Global crude prices rose further to above USD 79 per barrel on supply concerns, fuelling capital outflows concerns. The Brent crude rose by more than 1 per cent to USD 79.14 per barrel while West Texas Intermediate gained 47 cents to USD 74.32 per barrel after Norway closed one oilfield due to workers strike.

SAN FRANCISCO, JUL 10 (IANS): Microsoft on Tuesday launched its most portable and affordable surface tablet -- 10-inch “Surface Go” -- starting at $399. The “Go” features integrated kickstand, Windows 10 and a similar design to the Surface Pro. The device will be available for pre-order in the US, Canada and Australia, starting on July 10.

MUMBAI, JUL 10 (PTI): The rupee today fell by 10 paise to close at 68.82 against the US currency due to fresh buying of the dollar by importers after the greenback rebounded in global markets on waning trade war worries. Foreign fund outflows from capital markets and crude oil prices regaining USD 79/barrel mark on supply concerns also weighed on the rupee sentiment, dealers said. The US dollar today rebounded from its mid-June low levels against a basket of global currencies after economic data showed that trade tensions are yet to impact economic growth prospects.

All 13 rescued from flooded Thai cave

CHIANG RAI (Thailand), JUL 10 (agencies): All 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped for more than two weeks deep inside a flooded Thai cave have been rescued, a Thai navy SEAL unit said on Tuesday, a successful end to a perilous mission that has gripped the world, reports Reuters. “The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe,” the SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page. The “Wild Boars” soccer team and their coach got trapped on June 23 while exploring the cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after soccer practice and a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels. British divers found the 13, hungry and huddled in darkness on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex, on Monday last week.

Can’t say if Putin is friend or foe: Trump

Nawaz Sharif, Maryam put on exit control list

FILE -- U.S. President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin talk during the family photo session at the APEC Summit in Danang, Vietnam November 11, 2017.

WASHINGTON, JUL 10 (agencies): U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he could not say if Vladimir Putin is a friend or foe, and that a meeting with the Russian president could be the easiest part of a tour of Europe that includes a NATO meeting and a visit to Britain, reports Reuters. Speaking to reporters at the White House before leaving on the week-long trip, Trump repeated his criticism of NATO allies for not spending enough on

their defense and pointed to the political tensions in Britain over the government’s Brexit plans. “So I have NATO, I have the UK which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly Putin may be the easiest of them all. Who would think?” Trump said. “We’ll see how that goes,” he said of the summit with Putin to be held in Helsinki on Monday. Asked if Putin is a friend or foe, Trump said:

“I really can’t say right now. As far as I’m concerned, a competitor.” Trump, whose 2016 election campaign is being probed for possible collusion with Russia, has said repeatedly he wants to have a good relationship with Washington’s former Cold War foe, despite tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine, Syria and alleged election meddling around the world. Trump has denied any collusion with Russia.

LAHORE, JUL 10 (PTI): The Pakistani government today placed the names of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz on the exit control list (ECL) to prevent them from flying abroad after their return to the country on Friday. The move came days after the accountability court in Islamabad convicted Sharif and Maraym in the Avenfield properties corruption case and sentenced them to 10 and seven years jail respectively. Persons put on the ECL are prohibited from leaving Pakistan Father-daughter duo are currently in London to look after Sharif ’s wife, who is suffering from throat cancer and has been on ventilator since June 14 after a cardiac arrest. “The interior ministry on the request of the country’s anti-graft body – National Accountability Bureau (NAB)– has placed the names of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz on ECL,” an official of interior ministry confirmed.

commenting on the rescue mission as it has been taking place, so it was not clear what condition those brought out on Tuesday were in. The eight boys brought out on Sunday and Monday were in good health overall and some asked for chocolate bread for breakfast, officials said earlier. Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around in hospital. Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys and some of their parents said they had not been told who had been brought out. They were not allowed to visit the hospital where the boys were taken. The rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped, officials had said. The boys were still being quarantined from their parents because of the risk of infection and would likely be kept in hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said earlier on Tuesday.


UK PM Theresa May reasserts her authority after Brexit resignations LONDON, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): British Prime Minister Theresa May moved to reassert her authority on Tuesday after two top cabinet members quit and launched broadsides against her Brexit plans, winning support from many of her ministers including a leading eurosceptic, reports Reuters. May said she had chaired a “productive” meeting of her government, unswayed by the resignations of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit negotiator David Davis that rocked the government on Monday. Among those rallying around the prime minister was environment minister Michael Gove - a prominent campaigner to exit the European Union alongside Johnson for the 2016 referendum - who said he would not follow suit by resigning. With less than nine months until Britain is due to leave the bloc, May is sticking to her plan for a “business friendly” Brexit.

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May leaves Downing Street in London July 10, 2018.

She looks set on facing down a rebellion in her Conservative Party, where hardline Brexit supporters are livid over her plans to negotiate “a free trade area for goods” with the EU. One described accepting EU rules as “the ultimate betrayal”. Above a picture of her cabinet, including her new foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt and Brexit minister Dominic Raab after a mini-

reshuffle late on Monday, May wrote on her twitter feed: “Productive Cabinet meeting this morning - looking ahead to a busy week.” Her spokesman said she had welcomed the new members of her cabinet and they had discussed the publication of a white paper policy document on Britain’s future ties with the EU and stepping up preparations for any no-deal outcome to the negotiations with Brussels.

At least 12 dead in Afghan suicide blast KABUL, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): A suicide bomber in Afghanistan killed at least 12 people, including several children, on Tuesday, in an attack in the eastern city of Jalalabad claimed by Islamic State militants, reports Reuters. The attacker detonated his explosives near a petrol pump, killing two officials working for Afghanistan’s intelligence agency, and sparking a big fire. Ten civilians, including children, were killed. “Most of the victims were children who were working in a car wash,” said Sohrab Qaderi, a member of the provincial council. Officials said they were trying to identify charred bodies of children. Eight cars were burned in the explosion. Islamic State claimed the attack in a statement on their Amaq news agency. “A martyrdom attack using an explosives jacket hit a gathering of Afghan intelligence,” the militants said. Inamullah Miakhel, a spokesman for the provincial health department, said

Japan floods toll reach 122

TOKYO, JUL 10 (IANS): The death toll from devastating floods resulting from torrential rains that pounded Japan has increased to 122, with 27 others reported missing, authorities said on Tuesday. The rains that started on July 5, have stopped and the country has lifted emergency rain warnings, according to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency. Police, fire departments and the military are scouring affected areas for those unaccounted for, reports CNN. “We will unite and move swiftly to deliver those necessities to the disaster victims by coordinating closely with local government,” said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a meeting with the disaster response task force, also noting “the future need” to improve evacuation centres and tem-

porary housing. Thousands of houses have been damaged, and even the ones that stand intact have been impacted. Nearly 17,000 households are still without power and phone lines are down across multiple prefectures. The heavy rains also caused rivers to overflow, landslides crushed buildings and cars were swept away by floodwater. Two million people were forced to flee their homes, advised or ordered by the government to evacuate. Some, unable to leave, took shelter on their rooftops as flash floods inundated entire streets, reports CNN. Hiroshima and Ehime prefectures were some of the hardest hit, though nine others were also heavily impacted. About 73,000 personnel have been mobilized for search-and-rescue efforts.

Heavy rain disrupts life in Mumbai; traffic hit

Mumbai, Jul 9 (PTI): Heavy rain brought Mumbai and its neighbouring areas to a standstill today, flooding streets and badly affecting life, with nearly 90 trains on the suburban network being cancelled. The rainfall caused traffic snarls as many roads and streets in the metropolis were flooded and people were seen wading through knee-deep water. A 43-year-old woman riding a motorcycle as a pillion was crushed by a bus after the vehicle hit a water-logged pothole in adjoining Thane district of Maharashtra. The shocking incident was captured on CCTV cameras. Due to water-logging, around 300 people were stuck in their homes in Vasai town of the adjoining Palghar district. However, they refused to be evacuated even as the water level receded, a district information officer said. The residents preferred to stay in their homes instead of relocating to some temporary shelter in response to the district administration’s appeal for evacuation, he said. Some of them accepted food packets given by the administration, he said. “We have kept an ambulance near their homes as a precautionary measure,” the officer said. The downpour of 170 mm (recorded in Colaba

observatory for the Mumbai city) from 8.30 am yesterday morning till 8.30 am today was the highest in a 24-hour period during the current monsoon season, the Meteorological Department’s Deputy Director General, K S Hosalikar, said. From 8.30 am to 5.30 pm today, the Colaba observatory recorded a rainfall of 104.8 mm. The Santacruz observatory, which records rainfall for suburban Mumbai,

reported the downpour of 122 mm during the 24-hour period from 8.30 am yesterday and 75 mm from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm today. According to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the metropolis has received 54 per cent of its average monsoon season rainfall just in the last 20 days. The rainfall slowed down the pace of the financial capital, which is heavily dependent on local train services.

Though the intensity of showers receded as the day progressed, it took longer time for the city traffic to revert to its pace. As many as 87 local services on the Central Railway (CR) and the Western Railway (WR) were cancelled today due to the heavy rain, said officials. Vehicles on many roads were seen crawling because of the rainfall and low visibility. Potholes compounded the problem. Schools and colleges were shut in Mumbai, while the Mumbai University said examinations will be rescheduled for students who could not appear for them today. There was heavy water-logging in Mumbai’s central areas of Kurla, Sion and Dadar. Mira Road (in adjoining Thane district), Nallasopara and Vasai (in Palghar district) were largely affected due to the heavy showers. Train services of the Central Railway and the Wester n Railway were slightly delayed due to water-logging on rail tracks in some places, the officials said. The WR cancelled 50 of the nearly 1,500 suburban services operated by it on weekdays due to flooding on three tracks near Nallasopara station. Only two tracks were operational today. The WR deployed high-power pumps to take

out water from tracks, but this did not help in avoiding delay in running of trains. Thousands of people could not reach their offices, while many others arrived late. The CR cancelled 37 services, out of the daily 1,700, early in the day because of water-logging on tracks between Sion and Matunga stations. However, the situation improved in the second half of the day as normal local services resumed. Some long-distance trains to Gujarat and northern states were halted at Borivali as tracks near Nallasopara and Virar were submerged. The trains left after a delay of about one hour, a spokesperson of the Western Railway said. Many gover nment and semi-gover nment establishments curtailed their office hours to allow their employees to leave for home early. Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) buses were slightly delayed, but no service was cancelled or suspended, a BEST spokesperson said. The city’s neighbouring areas got even more rain and roads were submerged. Visibility at the Mumbai airport was “not very good” but flights were operating according to schedule, an Met official said, adding no warning has been issued for the aviation sector so far.

11 HC directs to use Cong slams Modi for heavy disclaimer in IIT spending on ‘self promotion’ Metro station New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked Delhi Metro to put up disclaimer notices that the coaching centre, FIIT-JEE, is in no manner connected to the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). Justice Vibhu Bakhru directed that the disclaimer should be of similar font and size in which FIIT-JEE was written at the IIT Metro station or any other place where the name had been used. IIT-Delhi protested after the IIT-Delhi Metro station, located just outside the institute’s campus, was named “FIITJEE-IIT” after Delhi Metro auctioned the naming right of the station to the coaching institute. IIT-Delhi protested to the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry and said the co-branding signage gave a wrong message that the engineering institute had a partnership with the coaching institute. After IIT-Delhi flagged the matter, the HRD Ministry asked the Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry to look into it. The IIT sought directions to the Delhi Metro to not use its name in conjunction with that of FIIT-JEE, claiming it was tarnishing the image of the premier engineering institute. So far, DMRC has auctioned naming rights in over 40 Metro stations across the capital.

Abhishek Manu Singhvi (file)

New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS): Rubbishing the plank forwarded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that simultaneous elections would save the exchequer hundreds of crores, the Congress on Tuesday pointed out that the cost of all elections in the country was still less than the cost incurred by Modi on “self promotion”. “Prime Minister Modi gives us this argumnet that hundreds of crores would be saved if elections are held together. A Parliament Standing Committee estimates the entire cost of Lok Sabha and all assembly elections at Rs 4,500 crore. “We would like to advise him to first stop spending Rs 4,600 crore of public money on self promotion and propaganda,” said Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi. An RTI query by a Mumbai activist revealed in May this year that the Modi gover nment had spent Rs 4,343 crore on publicity since it came to

power in May 2014. The money was spent on advertisements in the print and electronic media as well as outdoor publicity. An earlier RTI reply revealed the government had spent Rs 3,755 crore on publicity till October last year. Rejecting the proposal of simultaneous polls, Singhvi said that it was yet another “preposterous suggestion by a narcissist and self-centred” Modi government. “The concept of federalism engarined into our Constitution and multiparty parliamentary system would also be endangered if simultaneous elections take place. Large parties with a larger footprint will have more advantages in campaign, spending and publicity and the voices of regional parties would be submerged in the din,” he said. He added that the proposal hits out at the “very core of democracy in India”.

SC orders Rajinikath’s wife to J&K has two commissions No plan for state-wide face trial for not repaying loan similar to Lokayukta, SC told prohibition in Maha: Minister advertising agency. On Tuesday, the counsel appearing for the agency told the bench that Latha had not paid the money to them as per the undertaking given by her in the apex court earlier. On February 20, the bench while keeping the petition by the advertising agency pending for three months, had said that Mediaone would pay the amount in three months failing which Latha Rajinikanth would bear the burden of payment. The bench’s February order had stated: “Special leave petition is kept pending for three months. Within the aforesaid period of three months if the company - Mediaone Global Entertainment Ltd - does not pay the balance dues, the respondent-accused (Latha Rajanikanth) has undertaken before the court to pay the amount due.”

New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS): The Jammu and Kashmir government on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that the state doesn’t require a Lokayukta as there are already two commissions created under the state laws which comprehensively covered the scope of the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act. As the state said the provisions of the Jammu and Kashmir Accountability Commission Act, 2002, and the Jammu and Kashmir State Vigilance Commission Act, 2011, were similar to the Lokayukta Act of 2013, the apex court said that it doesn’t know to “whether these are on par with the Lokayukta Act”. A bench of Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice R. Banumathi and Justice Navin Sinha said: “You have a parallel set-up (Accountability Commission) headed by a retired chief

justice and comprises of two retired judges. You also have a Vigilance Commission. “You say these two commissions are adequate and you say that in view of the peculiarity of your Constitution, Lokayukta is not needed... We do not know to what extent your accountability commission and vigilance commission act... whether they are on par with the Lokayukta Act.” The court was hearing plea filed by advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay for appointment of Lokayuktas in all states. The petitioner has alleged that many state governments were deliberately weakening the Lokayukta by not providing adequate infrastructure, sufficient budget and workforce.

Nagpur, Jul 10 (PTI): There is no plan to impose a state-wide prohibition in Maharashtra, where sale and manufacture of liquor is banned in a few districts, Excise Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule told the assembly today. The government has no plans to extend prohibition, in force in a few districts, to the entire state, he said. The existing ban on sale and manufacture of liquor in Chandrapur district will not be lifted, Bawankule said.

The SBI lost Rs 56.81 crore, Rs 49.99 crore and Rs 30.13 crore in these dealings. The CBI official said these private companies enjoyed bill discounting facilities against the Letters of Credit (LoC) issued by SBI’s D.N.

New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS): The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled out expanding the scope of the challenge to validity of the Indian Penal Code’s Section 377, which criminalizes homosexuality, to include the right to marriage, cohabitation and adoption of people belonging to LGBT groups. Saying that it will only confine the hearing to the constitutional validity of Section 377, the five judge constitution bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar, Justice D.Y.Chandrachud and Justice Indu Malhotra said that they will not wade into the issue which has not so far arisen. Telling senior counsel Mukul Rohatgi that “let us for now limit to the vires of Section 377 IPC”, Chief Justice Misra said that the question was whether Section 377 is ultra vires or not. “Let us get out of this maze.” Ruling out expanding the scope of the hearing, he said that all the issues rooted in the rights of the LGBT community like marriage, co-habitation, adoption and inheritance “can be debated when the issue comes before us. Let there be no advance ruling”. The court said this as Rohatgi, appearing for the hotelier Kesav Suri, told the bench that their challenge to the vires of Section 377

IPC was one aspect and they were also seeking protection of their rights under Article 21 guaranteeing life and liberty. However, this was opposed by Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Central government, who said: “Let us confine to challenge to Section 377.” He said that if the scope of the hearing had be broadened, then the government must be given opportunity to respond to the petition being argued by Rohatgi. However, this issue saw difference of perceptions within the judges, as Justice Chandrachud said that the declaration by the constitution bench should not be limited to testing the validity of Section 377. As Mehta insisted that the hearing should be limited to Section 377, Justice Chandrachud observed: “This is a constitution bench.” However, Justice Nariman, along with the CJI,

said they should first decide on the constitutionality of Section 377 and then decide on the individual rights that would follow as a consequence. Describing his clients belonging to a sexual minority and seekinge protection of their rights, Rohatgi urged the bench not to restrict the hearing just to the challenge to Section 377, asking how many of them can later approach the court on individual issues. He said that sexual orientation - which according to Section 377 IPC is against the order of the nature - is in fact is also an order of nature as it was not a matter of choice and cultivated trait but the one that nature has given through genes. The constitution bench is hearing a bath of petitions by Suri, Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee Bharatnatyam dancer Navtej Singh Johar, a group of past and present IITians who are LGBT and

others against its 2013 order, setting aside a Delhi High Court’s July 2, 2009 verdict decriminalising gay sex. Appearing for Johar, senior counsel Arvind Datar argued that criminalizing gay sex was punishing someone for me something “that is innate, nature and God has given”. “It can never be against the order of the nature as it is nature itself.” He said that the right to life also means right to choose partners, which he contended was part of the right to privacy, and the right to sexual orientation. Pointing to the inconsistency of Section 377 with the present day understanding of rights including right to privacy, he said that no law-making body can now enact section 377 as it would totter at the presumption of constitutionality. As Datar sought to place the mankind at a higher pedestal with the rest of the animal kingdom in the matter of making choices, Justice Malhotra observed that 150 species of animals show homosexual tendencies. She also referred to British Prime Minister Theresa May expressing regret over UK’s colonial antigay law and saying that 37 of the 53 Commonwealth countries were still following the law passed under British rule. The hearing will continue on Wednesday.

SC stops release of accused in journo murder

New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS): The Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed till July 13 the release from jail of an accused facing trial in the murder case of TV journalist Soumya Viswanathan. A bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan said accused Ravi Kapoor should not be released from jail till Friday, the day when it would hear the case next. The Delhi High Court has granted bail to Kapoor, who was also convicted in the 2009 murder of business executive Jigisha Ghosh. The Delhi Police approached the apex court saying the high court has granted bail and parole to Kapoor in three separate cases lodged against him, and if he was released from jail, there was possibility that he would abscond. The high court granted him bail in two cases and 15 days parole in third case. Soumya was shot dead while she was returning home in her car from office late on September 30, 2008. The high court on January 4 this year had commuted, to life imprisonment, the death sentence of Kapoor and one another convict in murder of Jigisha. On July 14, 2016, the trial court held them guilty of the murder and awarded death sentence to them, while the third convict was given life imprisonment.

Shopian encounter: Two JeM militants, civilian killed

Srinagar, Jul 10 (PTI): Two Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militants, including a Pakistani national, were today killed in an encounter while a civilian died and 20 others sustained injuries during clashes with security forces near the scene of gunbattle in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said. A police spokesman said a joint patrol of the security forces launched searches in the Kundallan area of the district in the early hours today following credible leads about the presence of terrorists there. As the searches were going on, militants hiding inside the house fired upon the search party, who in their guarded response fired back, leading to an encounter, he said.

The spokesman said some civilians in the nearby houses were quickly evacuated by the security forces. “During the encounter, all the hiding terrorists were eliminated successfully by the joint patrol of the security forces. The slain terrorists were identified as Sameer Ahmad Sheikh, a local, and Babar from Pakistan,” he said, adding that the ultras were affiliated with proscribed terror outfit JeM. Sheikh was a school dropout and had joined the JeM after he was reported missing from his home since April 2018, the spokesman said. “On the basis of documents available, the other terrorist has been identified as Babar, a JeM commander of Pakistani origin. They were involved in many attacks on

the security establishments and civilian atrocities,” he said. The spokesman said some civilians were also injured in cross firing at the encounter site, who were later evacuated to a hospital for medical attention. “One of the injured persons later succumbed to injuries while the other injured are stated to be stable now,” he said. When the operation was in progress, a police official said, a large number of civilians rushed towards the encounter site and started pelting stones at security forces. At least 20 civilians were injured in the security forces action to chase away the protestors, he said, adding eight among them have been referred to hospitals here for specialised treatment.

Sena slams BJP for MLA’s Airtel to rollout Gay sex unnatural, should not Need to rectify lapses in 10,000 new mobile be celebrated, says Swamy remark on rape incidents education system: Amartya Sen sites in Bengal Kolkata, July 10 (IANS): Constructive discussion is the key to identifying and rectifying the lapses within the education system and many of the flaws continue to exist due to lack of discussions, Nobel laureate economist Amartya Sen said here on Tuesday while releasing a report on West Bengal’s primary education. “If there is any fault or lapse in our educational system, we should try to identify what are the reasons of those lapses. We should know whether it is the lack of our insight or enthusiasm about education or it is the lack of financial aid to run the educational system. It is very important to hold constructive discussions on these matters,” Sen said while launching the report by Pratichi Trust founded by the economist himself in 1999. “The idea of holding discussions about the edu-

cation system is not new but even during the current study, it has been repeatedly found that due to the lack of discussions certain lapses in the education system continue to exist,” he said. Sen said the discussions are necessary because we can learn a lot of things from each other through this and take the discussions towards constructive criticism. “Once the lapses are identified, we should discuss the way to find a solution and identify what sort

of government aid is necessary to help solve those lapses. I think the importance of discussions should be very high,” he said. Pointing out that entertainment gets a lot more space in the modern day media, the noted economist said such practices should not be encouraged if it pushes important issues like education and healthcare to the back seat. “There is nothing wrong with entertainment, but if that pushes back the discussions on health and education, then we should be critical about it,” he said. About the primary education system in Bengal, Sen noted that there has been improvement on certain metrics like Pupil Teacher Ratio (PTR) and Professional Development Schools (PDS), but there are many issues that need to be addressed at the state level.

Mumbai, Jul 10 (PTI): Hitting out at a BJP MLA’s remarks on rape incidents in the country, the Shiv Sena said today that law and order has gone out of control and asked how in such a scenario does the BJP plan to establish “Ram Rajya”. Taking a dig at its senior ally, the Sena said those in power today had a different stand when they were in the opposition during the Nirbhaya gang-rape case in December 2012. Governments changed, but rapes did not stop, it rued. Tinkering with emotional issues could lead to violence, the Sena cautioned, saying that Lord Ram never advocated such politics to win polls. BJP MLA Surendra Singh, known for his penchant for making controversial remarks, recently said that even Lord Ram cannot curb rapes. The legislator from Uttar Pradesh (UP) was referring to a case in Unnao where a woman was dragged into a forest and

molested by some men. Latching on to the MLA’s comments, the Sena said, “The BJP talks of bringing ‘Ram Rajya’ (an ideal state). However, it should clarify how it plans to do it. Incidents of rape and molestation of women have increased, including in UP.” “Instead of taking measures to stop them, the BJP says even Lord Ram cannot stop rapes,” it said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’. ‘Ram Rajya’ could not be established in the country despite the BJP coming to power with a majority under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, the Sena noted. “To say that rapes will continue to happen is not governance. The stand of those who are in power today was different when they were in the opposition during the Nirbhaya gang-rape. Governments changed, but rapes did not stop. Now, Lord Ram has been made a witness,” it said.

Ko l kata , J u l 1 0 (IANS): Telecom major Bharti Airtel plans to roll out 10,000 new mobile sites across West Bengal in the current fiscal to boost network capacity for high speed data and voice services, an official said on Tuesday. The telecommunications service provider will also start deploying pre-5G massive MIMO technology in the city to offer a high speed data experience to customers, the official said. “We will now undertake wide scale deployments of the cutting-edge technology in key business and residential hubs across Kolkata,” said company’s Chief Executive Officer (West Bengal and Odisha) Sameer Anjaria. The technology, which will be deployed at major business hubs and residential locations in the city, will expand network capacity by 5-7 times over the same spectrum, and delivers fast data speeds despite large number of concurrent users at the same location, a statement said.

While bringing out the ordinance, the government had decided to frame a scheme to set up an “appropriate” number of fast track courts to try rape cases in the states. The scheme will include components including strengthening of the physical infrastructure and

prosecution machinery, provision of the required number of judicial officers for lower courts, additional posts of public prosecutors, dedicated investigators and special forensic kits. The proposal is expected to come up shortly before the Cabinet. In April, the government had issued an ordinance to provide stringent punishment, including

mal social interactions and economic matters based on their sexual orientation. “There is no other flaw in them other than this. And also I am against police going into somebody’s bedroom to check whether a person is male or female,” he said. A newly re-constituted five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra is hearing the pleas challenging against Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises consensual sex between two adults of the same gender. The apex court had in 2013 restored sexual relationship between persons of the same sex as a criminal offence by setting aside the 2009 Delhi High Court judgement that had held as unconstitutional section 377 of the IPC, which makes such actions between two consenting adults of same sex as a penal offence.

New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI): The Law Ministry has come up with a proposal to set up “special” fast track courts across India to try rape cases as part of a larger scheme to strengthen infrastructure for better investigation and swift prosecution in such cases. Following discussions with the Home Secretary, the Department of Justice in the Law Ministry has prepared a draft scheme for setting up of “special fast track courts” to try rape cases. On June 14, the department had informed the Cabinet Secretary that the draft is ready and awaiting approval of the Law Minister. The new scheme is part of an ordinance recently promulgated to allow courts to award the death penalty to those convicted of raping children aged up to 12 years. The Criminal Laws (Amendment) Ordinance amended the IPC, the CrPC,


Law Min ready with draft to set up SFT courts to try rape cases

New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI): BJP Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy today termed gay sex as “unnatural”, and said it was a “genetic flaw” in the person and should not be allowed to be celebrated. He said allowing it would lead to setting up of gay bars which some American investors wanted to do in India. Swamy made these remarks on a day the Supreme Court commenced a crucial hearing on a clutch of petitions seeking decriminalisation of consensual sex between two adults of the same gender. “Sex with person of the same sex is unnatural. In Hindu tradition we have been sympathetic to there plight. But we have never allowed them to celebrate it and to say that it is a matter of choice,” he said. Swamy, however, said that people should not be discriminated in their nor-

Trump picks Kavanaugh as SC judge

WASHINGTON, JUL 10 (PTI): US President Donald Trump today nominated conservative Brett Kavanaugh as the Supreme Court Judge to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement recently. Trump picked Justice Kavanaugh from his original list of 25 judges, which also included prominent Indian-American judge Amul Thapar, from which he had said he would nominate for any vacancy in the Supreme Court. Announcing Kavanaugh’s nomination from the White House, Trump described the 53year-old from Maryland, currently a judge in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, as one with “impeccable credentials and one of the finest legal minds of our times”. Kavanaugh’s nomination though needs to be confirmed by the Senate, which is bitterly divided over party lines. Justice Kennedy, 81, had announced his retirement on June 27 after serv-

ing the federal judiciary for 43 years, 30 of those on the Supreme Court. He met Trump at the White House soon after he told his colleagues that July 31 would be his last day at the apex court. “Tonight it is my honour and privilege to announce that I will nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme

Court,” Trump said. “Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law. Throughout legal circles, he is considered a judge’s judge, a true thought leader among his peers,” he said. Trump and Judge Kavanaugh were joined on the

podium by his wife Ashley and their two daughters, Margaret and Liza. First Lady Melania Trump was seated in the first row of the East Room of the White House where the President announced his nomination. The nomination of Judge Kavanaugh comes after a selection process marked by a historic degree

of transparency, including the President’s public disclosure of a list of 25 highly qualified potential nominees to the Supreme Court. Serving as a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006, he authored more than 300 opinions, including 11 that have been affirmed by the Supreme Court. “He’s a brilliant jurist with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time. And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy. That’s great,” the President said. “This incredibly qualified nominee deserves a swift confirmation and robust bipartisan support,” Trump said. Prior to becoming a judge, he served in the George W Bush administration, first as an associate counsel and then senior associate counsel, and subsequently as assistant to the president and the staff secretary.

China frees dissident Nobel laureate’s widow BEIJING, JUL 10 (IANS): After seven years of house arrest, Liu Xia, the widow of activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo, on Tuesday left for Germany. Liu Xia had been under house arrest since 2010 when her late husband was awarded the top peace prize while serving his sentence for “anti-China” activities. He died of cancer in 2017, becoming the first Nobel Peace Prize winner in custody since German pacifist Carl von Ossietzky in 1938. Liu Xia took a plane to Berlin at 11 a.m., family friends said. She has never been charged with any crime but said in May that she was ready to die in protest over her continued detention. The Chinese Foreign Ministry, which was cagey about the details and reasons for freeing Liu Xia, said the 57-year-old poet left for Germany for treatment of her own volition. “I should say Liu Xia travelled to Germany for medical treatment in accordance with her own will,” Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

Israeli PM quizzed for 10th time over graft charges JERUSALEM, JUL 10 (IANS): Israeli police investigators on Tuesday questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his official residence here for the 10th time over corruption allegations. A police spokesman said the questioning will focus on the so-called “Case 4,000”, a criminal investigation involving Netanyahu and Shaul Elovitch, a businessman and an associate of the Prime Minister, Efe news reported. During Netanyahu’s stint as Communication Minister, the ministry allegedly offered financial benefits to Bezeq Telecom, Israel’s communications giant controlled by Elovitch. In return, Netanyahu and his wife Sara allegedly received positive coverage in the Walla news site, also controlled by the Israeli businessman, the report said. Elovitch was questioned at the same time in a separate location. According to Ha’aretz daily, Netanyahu was expected to be questioned for the first time over testimo-

nies and records provided by Nir Hefetz, his former close associate and media advisor, and Shlomo Filber, Director of the Communication Ministry during Netanyahu’s term. Both have turned state’s evidence. Netanyahu is involved in a series of criminal corruption investigations. In February, police said there was enough evidence to charge the Prime Minister with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in two other cases. However, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has yet to decide whether to press charges or drop the cases.

Israeli spacecraft aims for Germany presents new, more restrictive migration plan historic moon landing in 2019 YEHUD, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): An Israeli organization said Tuesday that it hopes to become the first non-governmental entity to land a spacecraft on the moon when it attempts to launch a module later this year, reports AP. SpaceIL and the stateowned Israel Aerospace Industries plan to launch their unmanned craft in December, the team said at a press conference at an IAI facility outside Tel Aviv. If successful, Israel would become the fourth country to land a craft on the moon, after the U.S., the Soviet Union and China. SpaceIL will ship the as yet unnamed module to the

United States in November ahead of the launch. The 585 kilogram (1,289 pound) landing craft will piggyback on a SpaceX Falcon rocket to enter Earth’s orbit, then slingshot around the planet several times to reach the moon. Upon landing, the craft will relay photographs and collect data about the moon’s magnetism for research by Israel’s Weizmann Institute. The $95 million project, largely funded by South African-Israeli billionaire Morris Kahn and other donors, aims to land on the moon on Feb. 13. Kahn said it would be “a tremendous achievement.” SpaceIL was founded

in 2011 and originally vied for Google’s Lunar Xprize, which challenged private companies to try to land an unmanned spacecraft on the moon. But the $20 million competition was scrapped by the tech giant earlier this year when it became clear none of the five companies would meet a March deadline. Despite financial pitfalls in recent years that nearly saw SpaceIL’s spacecraft grounded permanently, the team is confident that December’s launch will take place on time. “This project will take the aerospace industry into deep space,” said Kahn, SpaceIL’s main donor and president.

BERLIN, JUL 10 (AGENCIES): Germany’s top security official on Tuesday unveiled his new plan on controlling and limiting migration, which he called a “turning point” in the country’s asylum policy, reports AP. The main goals of the 63-point “migration master plan” include the quick deportation of people living in Germany whose asylum applications have been rejected, who already registered for asylum in another European country or who have a criminal record, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer told reporters in Berlin.

While they initially received a friendly welcome in the country, the mood has turned and led to a backlash against migrants and helped fuel the rise of the nationalist Alternative for Germany.

Among other shuttlers, Shreyansh Jaiswal, Rahul Yadav and Kartikey Gulshan Kumar failed to qualify for the main round as they lost their matches in the qualifiers in men’s singles category.

Novak Djokovic

it the longest men’s singles match of the tournament. It is the first time since he reached the Australian Open and French Open

WIMBLEDON quarterfinals in 2012 that del Potro has qualified for the last eight at consecutive Grand Slams. He reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2013, but four wrist surgeries -- three on the left -- almost made him retire. The Argentine next faces two-time champion Rafael Nadal, who has reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time since 2011. Novak Djokovic committed just a dozen unforced errors on Monday and hit 29 winners to dispatch Khachanov as night fell on the All Eng-

land Club, reports Efe. Next up for Djokovic, the tournament’s 12th seed, will be Kei Nishikori of Japan who defeated Ernests Gulbis 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-6, (10), 6-1 in a gruelling contest that went on for three hours and 28 minutes. “I’m very pleased,” Djokovic said after the victory. “He started off with a break. He made a couple of great shots but I managed to break and get back into the set. He’s got weapons, a big first serve and a big forehand, but I managed to get serves back and make him play another shot,” he added. With a 10th appearance in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, Djokovic moves into a tie with Andy Murray behind Roger Federer (16), Jimmy Connors (14) and Boris Becker (11).


Serena Williams came up with a comeback to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon, then walked off Centre Court with her right index finger aloft. Yes, no matter what the rankings or seedings say, she still looks as if she’s capable of playing like someone who’s No. 1, reports Chicago Tribune. Williams moved closer to her eighth title at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam trophy overall — but first since missing more than a year while having a baby — by beating 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinals Tuesday. Williams was seeded 25th by the All England Club, a nod to all of her past success at the grass-court major, including titles the last two times she entered it, in 2015 and 2016. She missed Wimbledon a year ago because she was pregnant, and she went about 16 months between Grand Slam tournaments, so her ranking is just outside the top 180. Next up for the 36year-old American is a match against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 winner against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

India women’s cricket coach Arothe resigns New Delhi, Jul 10 (IANS): India’s women cricket team coach Tushar Arothe has stepped down from the role, citing personal reasons, the BCCI announced on Tuesday. “The BCCI on Tuesday accepted Tushar Arothe’s resignation. Arothe cited personal reasons behind his resignation and thanked the BCCI for giving him an opportunity to work with the Indian Women’s cricket team,” a statement from BCCI read. “The Board would like to convey that it has been a pleasure working with Arothe and would like to thank him for his services towards the Indian Women’s team,” it added. Under his stint, the team reached the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017. In 2018, the team won the three-match ODI series and five-match T20I series in South Africa. Earlier this year, the team successfully reached the final of the Asia Cup held in Malaysia. “The Board is in search for Arothe’s replacement,” the statement said.

I’ll be back with Produnova after Asian Games: Dipa Karmakar

New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI): Forced to dump the dangerous Produnova routine following a career-threatening knee injury, ace Indian gymnast Dipa Karmakar will once again switch to the ‘vault of death’ after the Asian Games. Dipa had put Indian gymnastics on world map with her gravity-defying display in Produnova vault at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she finished a creditable fourth. However, she couldn’t compete in any tournament after the Rio high due to an Anterior Crucial Ligament (ACL) injury in her right knee. She had to undergo surgery in April last year and missed the Asian Championship, World Championship in Canada last year and the 2 0 1 8 C o m m o n we a l t h Games in Australia. Returning to action at the World Challenge Cup in Turkey on July 8, Dipa opted for Handspring 360 and Tsukuhara 720 en route to her gold medal winning feat. She had scripted history by becoming the first Indian gymnast to clinch a gold medal at a global event. But Dipa said she will not give up Produnova. “I will do it but it will take time.

Loving family members

Mom, it had come as a shock when the cold hands of death snatched you away from us leaving that emptiness in our hearts, which no one can fill. We loved and always will, but the Almighty God who gave to us needed you more up there in His eternal abode. We cannot question His works, but we trust, we will be reunited again during the Great Getting up Morning. Take your rest, Mom in the bosom of Abraham.

“I will try for Produnova by the end of this year because sometimes she feels pain in her knee even now. It is a complicated sport and it is natural but she will overcome that,” he said. “According to the new code of points, the difficulty level of Produnova has been reduced to 6.4 from 7, but we will keep it as we have worked hard on this for the last few years.” Dipa scored 14.15 to clinch the gold medal in Turkey but said she will need to score higher to win a medal at the Asian Games.

lot of time in mastering this but after injury it was difficult. Difficulty level in Produnova has been reduced to 6.4 from 7, in fact average scores in difficulties are being reduced but I’ll be back doing Produnova. I will not give it up,” Dipa told PTI on Tuesday. Her mentor and coach Bisheshwar Nandi, who has guided her career since her first steps in gymnastics, said there is not much time to try it at the upcoming Asian Games but he is hopeful to switch back to Produnova by the year end.

World Cup: Croatia, England aim to create history

Harry Kane

M o s c ow, J u l 1 0 (IANS): Croatia’s compact side will combat England’s fast and direct football when they meet in the second semi-final of the FIFA World Cup with both teams aiming to recreate their own history by progressing to the title decider. The Croats, basking in the afterglow of their

Luka Modric

golden generation of footballers, have reached the semi-finals for the second time in their brief history. They will aim to better the third-place finish achieved by the star-studded squad spearheaded by the legendary Davor Suker at the 1998 edition in France. For England, it is a chance to reach the final

for the first time since their World Cup winning campaign at home in 1966, more than a generation ago. They reached the last four stage for the last time in Italy back in 1990. While Croats are in the semi-finals on the back of two knockout victories over Denmark and Russia via penalty shootouts,

England got past Colombia and Sweden in the last two elimination matches. Croatia have had an impressive campaign at this World Cup. They topped an extremely difficult group that included perennial title contenders Argentina, Iceland and Nigeria. On the other hand, England’s progression to the knockout rounds was far more easy -- they defeated inexperienced sides like Tunisia and minnows Panama before losing to an impressive Belgium. In Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, Croatia have arguably the best midfield in Russia and the presence of star strikers Mario Mandzukic and Ante Rebic add some added force upfront. Modric and Rakitic have also been protecting central defenders Dejan Lovren and Domagoj Vida, who stand in front of experienced keeper Danijel Subasic.

While left-back Ivan Strinic is certain to start, Croatia’s preferred rightback Sime Vrsaljko is yet to fully recover from a knee injury suffered during the game against Russia. His absence would likely hand a start to Vedran Corluka in the center of defense alongside Lovren, shifting Vida to right-back. Rebic, along with Andrej Kramaric and Ivan Perisic may feature ahead of the midfield duo of Modric and Rakitic. Mandzukic will lead Croatia’s attack. In case, Croatia go with three-man midfield, one of Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic may get a place. Croatia have an experienced squad and will go into the match with the belief of going the distance. Playing in a 3-5-2 formation, England are the third youngest team in the tournament and head coach Gareth Southgate has done his utmost to lower the expectations. Harry Kane is

the leading goal-scorer in the tournament with six goals to his name and like his tally, most of England’s goals have come from corners and crosses from the wings. Wednesday’s match

Croatia Vs England: 11:30 p.m.

India bag four medals at Asia Cup Archery, finish joint-third

New delhi, Jul 10 (PTI): India bagged three silver medals and a bronze to finish joint third with Iran in the Asia Cup World Ranking Tournament Stage 3 on Tuesday. The event concluded in two days to avoid the incoming super typhoon Maria, and on the concluding day, recurve men’s team added a second silver before Divya Dhayal clinched a third silver in the compound individual category. Women’s recurve team defeated its opponents from Japan 6-2 in the evening session to win the bronze playoff. India ended their campaign behind toppers Korea and hosts Chinese Taipei. Korea topped the tally with eight gold, three silver and as many bronze followed by hosts Taipei

(2-1-2). On Monday, in a battle between the two top seeded recurve mixed pairs, Koreans maintained their supremacy to defeat the Indian duo of Shukmani Babrekar and Ridhi for the gold. The recurve men’s team of Shukmani Babrekar, Dhiraj Bommadevara and Gora Ho were no match to their Korean counterparts Jaehyeon Bae, Taeyeong Jeong and KyuChan Kim, who led 4-0 before clinching the issue 5-1 after a tied third end. Making best use of the small draw of eight, Divya, who got a sixth seeding, pipped Korean third seed Yun Soon Song in the shoot-off. In the second round, she had it easy against Thailand’s ThaKanayee Maneesombatkul winning 144-141.

Ronaldo set to join Juventus for £105m

Cristiano Ronaldo

M A D R I D, J u l 1 0 (Agencies): Five-times world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo has signed for Italian cham-

pions Juventus from Real Madrid, the La Liga club said in a statement on Tuesday. Ronaldo, who joined

Real from Manchester United in 2008 for a then world record 80 million pounds ($106.27 million), is the Spanish club’s alltime top scorer with 451 goals in all competitions and won two La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies with them. “For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of its greatest symbols and a unique reference for the generations to come,” European champions Real said, adding that Ronaldo had asked to be transferred. “Real Madrid will always be his home”. The transfer fee was

not disclosed but Spanish media said Ronaldo had signed a four-year deal and had cost Juventus 105 million euros ($123.24 million), reported Reuters. The Portugal international scored two goals against Juventus in Real’s 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final firstleg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation. The Portuguese, 33, converted a stoppage-time penalty in the second leg to

knock the Italians out 4-3 on aggregate. The signing of the latest Ballon d’Or winner and top scorer in the Champions League for the last six seasons represents a major coup for Juve, who have had a stranglehold on the Italian title since 2012 but have not won Europe’s top prize since 1996. The signing also strikes a blow for the profile of Serie A against La Liga, which has now lost two of its three most famous players in the last year after Paris St Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona last August.
