K’taka speaker buys time for govt

BENGALURU, JUL 11 ( AG E N C I E S ) : K a r n a taka Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar on Thursday said he would decide on the fresh resignation of MLAs after applying his mind to the letters that he has received and in line with the requirement laid down by the Constitution of India. He has not taken a decision on the resignation letters yet. “MLAs have submitted resignation in right format now.. I will have to examine whether resignations are voluntary and genuine,” he said at a press conference held shortly after meeting with rebel MLAs. Speaker Kumar said he would take a call on the new resignation letters in line with the Constitution. The Speaker maintained that the legislators should have approached him instead of rushing to the Governor. He said, “They (MLAs) don’t communicate to me and rush to the Governor. What can he do? Is it not misuse? They approached the Supreme Court. My obligation is to the people of this state and the Constitution of this country. I am delaying because I love this land. I am not acting in haste.” The Speaker’s decision

SSAALWC to halt SARDP work

DIMAPUR, JUL 11 (NPN): After its appeal to authority concerned to clear compensation to beneficiaries under the 2nd phase went unheeded, SARDP Sumi Area Affected Landowners Welfare Committee (SSAALWC) has now declared that construction firms would not be allowed to execute work in any village under its jurisdiction. Announcing this, committee chairman Ghuvishe Zhimomi and secretary Kakheto Zhimomi warned that forceful entry by any company or organisation or government agency would result in blockade of highway. They, however, added that Xuivi village was exempted from the purview of the committee’s ban as compensation had been cleared till 3rd phase. The committee had threatened to stall SARDP work on June 12. Acknowledging Sümi Hoho’s appeal to contractors of 2-lane road between Zunheboto and Chakhabama that appeared in Nagaland Post on Thursday, SSAALWC urged the hoho to reason why the 2nd phase was still pending when 90% of landowners were yet to receive the property damage compensation, even as National Highways &

may have disappointed the rebel MLAs, 11 of whom arrived by special flights from Mumbai. They are likely to seek a speedy decision from the Supreme Court when the matter comes up before the court Friday. Ramesh Kumar said he has videographed the entire proceedings and sent everything to the Supreme Court Registrar General. He has also sought clarification from the apex court on what it meant by “a decision forthwith”. It is to be seen if the Speaker’s tough stand will lead to a friction between the powers of the judiciary and that of Speaker. In all, 16 MLAs have

resigned, so far. And out of the 13 resignations received earlier, only five were in order. Eight were not, he had said. He told reporters on Thursday that that he is under no one’s obligation and will take a view on resignations only in compliance with Article 190 of the Constitution of India. A Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the decision taken by the Speaker has to be intimated on Friday when the court takes up the matter again. Whip issued: Amid ongoing political turmoil in Karnataka, Chikkodi MLA and chief whip of the JD (S)-Congress coalition gov-

ernment Ganesh Hukkeri on Thursday issued a whip to party MLAs to attend the Assembly session to pass the Finance bill on Friday. Hukkeri has asked all rebel MLAs to attend Friday’s assembly session to pass the finance bill and other matters, failing which the absent MLAs will be disqualified under the antidefection law. Hukkeri has said if there’s a need to vote, MLAs must vote in favour of the party. “If there’s a violation of this, there would be action as per the antidefection law,” he said.

GUWAHATI , JUL 11 (AGENCIES): CBI officials on Thursday raided 14 locations in Guwahati in connections with one Rs 158 crore scam in the Northeast Frontier Railway (Construction) headquarters in Maligaon. Sources informed Northeast Now that CBI on Thursday raided offices, official quarters and private residences of six NF Railway officials, who were directly involved in the scam. According to North East Now report, acting on a report, the CBI registered a suo-moto case (number 06/2019) against six officials of NF Railway (Construction), who were directly involved in swindling of over Rs 158 crores of public money. The NF Railway (Construction) is responsible for implementation of all construction works in the eight states of the North East, parts of West Bengal and Bihar. Sources said, Dilip Borah, who is a senior public relations officer of the NF Railway is the prime ac-

cused in the case. The six railway officers, between 2014 and 2018, swindled Rs 158 crore by issuing advertisements to a large number of bogus and non-existing newspapers and magazines in Bihar and Central India. The CBI seized huge amount of documents, bank passbooks and computer hard discs from all the 14 locations for investigations. Though the CBI has not made any official statement on the raids, sources said, the magnitude of the scam could be even bigger than Rs 158 crores. Some more senior officials of the NF Railway are suspected to be involved in the scam, the sources said. The CBI officials on Thursday afternoon started

interrogating all the six officials in different locations, and some of them may also be arrested, the sources said. While the officials issued advertisements of tenders to bogus and nonexistent newspapers and magazines, it also helped a section of contractors and suppliers to get the contracts from the back door. “When the advertisements are published in bogus newspapers, how will the genuine contractors and suppliers get to know about the work,” the sources said. Taking advantage of the invisible advertisements, a section of dishonest contractors got the construction jobs by bribing the senior officials.

NE states to protest CAB if re-tabled, says Khandu

ITANAGAR, Jul 11(AGENCIES): If the Centre brings the Citizenship Amendment Bill once again, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu Tuesday said he, along with his counterparts in the northeastern states, will protest jointly. According to reports, Khandu, who heads a BJP government, informed the assembly that earlier also he had urged the Centre to exempt the tribal state from the purview of the Bill. The contentious Bill provided for according Indian citizenship to Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan after seven years of residence in India instead of 12 years, which is the norm currently, even if they do not possess any document. Replying to a question by Congress MLA Ninong Ering on the steps taken to protect the interest of the indigenous people if the Bill is imposed, Khandu said the state would appeal to the Centre not to impose the bill as it would have a strong ramification. “The Lok Sabha passed the bill on January 8 but it

Pema Khandu was not tabled in the Rajya Sabha. I along with the Manipur chief minister had gone to Delhi and apprised the then home minister Rajnath Singh of the probable impact of the bill. (We told him that) it might dilute the rights of the indigenous people of the North East,” Khandu said. A citizenship bill would be brought to give Indian citizenship to Hindus coming from neighbouring nations, Union Home Minister Amit Shah informed the Rajya Sabha on July 1. “If the Centre wants to bring the Bill again, we will oppose it jointly by taking into confidence all the chief ministers of the region,” he said. A largescale protest had broken out in the Northeastern states earlier this year as the indigenous

people of the region were apprehending that if the bill was enacted, it would endanger their identity and livelihood. Khandu said the state government had made its stand clear to the Centre on the citizenship bill citing the violence in the state capital during February over the Permanent Residence Certificate (PRC) issue. The state government had proposed grant of PRC to six communities that are not natives of Arunachal Pradesh but are living there for decades. It led to violent protests and two persons were killed in Itanagar in February and Khandu had declared: “Never again will we take up the issue of PRC. The issue is closed.”Responding to another question of NPP member Mutchu Mithi, Khandu made it clear that there would be no dilution in the inner line permit system in the state. “Arunachal is protected by the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation Act of 1873 and Chin Hill Regulations Act, 1896. These are enough to protect the rights of the tribal people,” the chief minister said.

Mysterious slaughter of livestock re-visits Manipur Correspondent

IMPHAL, Jul 11: Months after incidents of unknown predators killing livestock were reported in Manipur Ukhrul district, over 30 chickens were found slaughter on the night of July 4 at Ringkui village of the district. Around 10 more chickens were also found dead on the intervening night of July 7 and 8 at the same village. Local reports alleged incidents of similar mass killing of livestock at different parts of the district. They said that internal organs of the slaughtered chickens were found missing. The first of the mysterious killings of livestock was reported from Churachandpur in the last week of October last year. Dead ducks and chicken were found slashed and without their entrails at three places in a village 75 km from the capital Imphal, did not raise any suspicion until it happened on three consecutive nights. Later, it escalated to other villages of the district where goats, cattle and even dogs were killed, apart from fowl. A similar incident of mass slaughter of livestock was then reported in the valley districts at a locality in Imphal East district

where over 40 ducks were found slaughtered in a farm at Kitana Panung under Irilbung police station of the district. Panic set in after similar cases of livestock deaths were reported from other valley districts and in some villages in Senapati and Kangpokpi districts. The first human, a woman in Imphal East district’s Khurai Heikrumakhong area, was attacked on December 1, 2018 by what she claimed was a flying creature. It spawned theories of attacks by aliens, mutants and vampire-like creatures. A couple of civets - a cat-like small, nocturnal carnivore - paid the price of social media-driven rumours, forcing state forest department to swing into action. To ease the panic and with the objective of identifying the predator(s) if any, state forest department called out experts from Dehradun’s Wildlife Institute of India (WII) who identified stray and domesticated dogs as the culprits. But the mystery of the nocturnal attacks was far from solved after the recent similar incident of slaughter of domestic animals reported from interior village in Senapati district bordering Nagaland.

Why should I resign?, asks HDK

B E N G A LU RU / K an nur, JUL 11 (PTI): Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy Thursday rejected demands for his resignation in the wake of 16 Congress-JD(S) MLAs quitting, which has pushed his 13-month old coalition government to the brink of collapse. His response comes a day after the Karnataka unit of the BJP, led by its chief B S Yeddyurappa, staged a protest at the Vidhan Soudha, demanding the resignation of Kumaraswamy, who they claimed had lost majority in the House. “Why should I resign? What is the necessity for me to resign now?,” Kumaraswamy shot back to reporters here, amidst the speculation that he could put in his papers in the wake of the crisis. He recalled that in 2009-10, 18 MLAs, including some ministers, had “opposed” the then chief minister BS Yeddyurappa of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) but he had not resigned. The chief minister held discussions with senior Congress leaders on Thursday, after the coalition government headed by him

Congress MLAs MTB Nagaraj and K Sudhakar submitted their resignations to Assembly Speaker Ramesh Kumar at his chamber in Vidhana Soudha, the state secretariat, on

Wednesday. Yeddyurappa and other BJP leaders had petitioned the governor in connection with the political developments in the state. Of the 16 MLAs who have resigned, 13 are from the Congress and three from the JD(S). The coalition’s strength in the House is 116 (Congress 78, JD(S) 37 and BSP one), besides the speaker. With the support of the two independents, who resigned from the ministry on Monday, the opposition BJP has 107 MLAs in the 224-member House, where

The bench said after perusing the report, if it came to a conclusion that an amicable solution through mediation was not possible, then the apex court would commence day-to-day hearing in the matter from July 25. “We deem it proper to request Justice (Retd) F M I Kalifulla to inform us about the progress of mediation till date and the stage at which the said process is presently at,” the bench, also comprising justices S A

Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer, said. “This report will be submitted by Justice Kalifulla latest by Thursday next, on which date further orders will be passed,” the bench said. The apex court passed the order while hearing an application filed by the legal heirs of one of the original litigants, Gopal Singh Visharad, seeking a judicial decision on the dispute and annulment of the ongoing mediation process, alleging that nothing much was happening there. During the arguments, senior advocate Ranjit Kumar, appearing for deity Ram Lalla Virajman, supported the application and said they had opposed the reference of the matter to a mediation panel earlier as well. Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for a Muslim party, opposed the plea for annulment of the mediation process, saying it should be allowed to continue as the fresh plea was a ploy to intimidate them. However, the bench told Dhavan that since the apex court had constituted

the mediation panel, it was entitled to get the latest status report from the committee. Appearing for the applicant, senior advocate K S Parasaran said at the outset, it was probably very difficult to settle a dispute of this nature through mediation. Giving details of the number of sittings conducted by the mediation panel, he said it would be better if the apex court decided the dispute judicially. Countering his submissions, Dhavan said, “I do not think it is fair at this point of time to criticise the methodology of the committee.” At this juncture, the CJI said, “We will call for a report from the mediation panel.” To this, Dhavan said stopping the mediation mid-way would be akin to a recall of the May 10 order by which the apex court had extended the time till August 15 for the committee to conclude the process. “It is simply not fair. They (applicant) do not ask for a recall of the order of May 10. They are simply saying that scrap the mediation committee,” he said, adding, “Serious mediation is taking place there.”

RTI activist’s murder: Ex-BJP CBI raids at residence of Indira Jaising, offices of Lawyers Collective Being targeted due to MP, 6 others sentenced to life our work on human rights

AHMEDABAD, JUL 11 (PTI): A special CBI court Thursday sentenced former BJP MP Dinu Bogha Solanki and six others to life imprisonment for killing RTI activist Amit Jethwa in 2010 after he tried to expose illegal mining activities in the Gir forest region. Special CBI Judge K M Dave also imposed a fine of Rs 15 lakh each on Solanki and his nephew, also an accused in the case. While pronouncing the verdict on Thursday, the court held Solanki, who was the Junagadh MP from 2009 to 2014, and his nephew, Shiva Solanki, guilty of murder and conspiracy. The others who were convicted in the case are Shailesh Pandya, Bahadursinh Vadher, Panchan G Desai, Sanjay Chauhan and Udaji Thakore. The court convicted all the seven accused for murder last Saturday. Jethwa, a lawyer, was shot dead for exposing through RTI applications

Dinu Bogha Solanki (File)

the illegal mining in and around the Gir Wildlife Sanctuary in which Solanki was allegedly involved. In 2010, Jethwa filed a public interest litigation (PIL) against the illegal mining in and around the Gir sanctuary, the only abode of Asiatic lions. Solanki and his nephew were made respondents to the PIL, and Jethwa produced several documents showing their involvement in the illegal mining. While the PIL was being heard, Jethwa was shot dead outside the Gujarat High Court here

on July 20, 2010. Initially, Ahmedabad police’s crime branch probed the case and gave a clean chit to Dinu Solanki. Dissatisfied with the investigation, the high court handed over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 2013. The CBI filed a charge sheet against Solanki and six others in November 2013. Charges of murder and criminal conspiracy were framed against them in May 2016. The court examined 196 witnesses during the first trial and as many as 105 of them turned hostile after being threatened by the accused. The slain RTI activist’s father, Bhikhabhai Jethwa, then moved the high court seeking a retrial. The high court ordered a fresh trial in 2017. “Our judiciary takes time but it has finally delivered justice to our family... even a criminal like Solanki is brought to justice,” Bhikhabhai Jethwa said after the court’s verdict.

NEW DELHI, JUL 11 (PTI): The CBI is carrying out searches at the residence of noted lawyer Indira Jaising and offices of Lawyers Collective, an NGO run by her husband Anand Grover, officials said Thursday. The searches are taking place at the Nizamuddin residence and office of Jaising, office of the NGO in Jangpura and an office in Mumbai from 5 in the morning, they said. Grover was booked by the agency for alleged FCRA violations in receiving foreign aid. When contacted, Grover asked not to be disturbed as he was in the “midst” of it (searches). Lawyers Collective had issued a strong denial of all the charges levelled by the CBI. The agency had filed an FIR against Grover and the NGO on the basis of a complaint from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), which has alleged several discrepancies in the utilisation of foreign aid received by the group. Former Additional So-

Indira Jaising (File)

licitor General Jaising is not named as an accused in the FIR but her alleged role figures in the complaint of the ministry. CBI has booked Grover, the president of Lawyers Collective, and unidentified office-bearers of the organisation, besides unidentified officials. According to the complaint of the ministry, which is now a part of the FIR, the group had received foreign aid worth over Rs 32.39 crore between 2006-07 and 2014-15, wherein irregularities were committed that amounted to violation of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA).

J&K terror strike: 3 overground workers of JeM arrested SRINAGAR, JUL 11 (PT): Three overground workers of banned Jaish-e-Mohammed group were arrested by police in South Kashmir Thursday in connection with the June 12 terror strike in which 5 CRPF personnel and station house officer Arshad Ahmed Khan were killed, officials said. The trio have given details to police about the June 12 terror strike at busy KP road. Five CRPF personnel

were killed and Khan was injured. He succumbed to his injuries. The trio told the police that a Pakistani terrorist was brought to the house of one of the accused by local Jaish commander Fayaz Punzoo. The terrorist was in Anantnag from June 8 before he carried out the strike on the paramilitary forces. He had also conducted a reconnaissance of potential targets around the area.

Accusing the government of “gross abuse of power” over the CBI raids at the residence of noted lawyer Indira Jaising and offices of Lawyers Collective, a group of opposition MPs Thursday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “halt such act of coercion and intimidation”. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) carried out searches at Jaising’s residence and offices of Lawyers Collective, an NGO run by Grover, a noted lawyer, who has been booked by the agency for alleged violations

of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA) in receiving foreign aid. The searches are taking place at the Nizamuddin residence and office of Jaising, the office of the NGO in Jangpura and an office in Mumbai from 5.00 am, officials said. “This, latest in a long line of coercion and intimidation of Ms Jaising and Mr Grover, is nothing short of a brute show of intimidation as well as gross abuse of power,” the letter signed by Congress, TMC, SP, CPI and CPI(M) MPs said.

Robbing Peter to pay Paul


hile the government’s desire to transform India through digitalisation or a cashless economy since November 2016 is laudable; yet it comes with a heavy price after the government introduced several restrictions and charges on bank transactions. The dream may seem nice but not for those who have discovered to their dismay that they are being made to pay for the dream. While fraudsters who have siphoned off huge amount of bank loans are still at large and enjoying life in other countries; the poor bank customers are fleeced under various charges of the bank. Even those dutifully responding to the banks to “give some deposit” find they are also being punished with income tax on interest earned. The harassed bank customers cannot ignore the fact that Banks in India have earned at least Rs 10,391.43 crore by charging them for just two things--failure to maintain minimum balance in saving accounts and carrying out more than the permitted number of free ATM transactions in a month. After people were compelled to transact through banks, they discovered that for internet banking of up to Rs.10,000 they had to pay Rs 1 plus 18% GST and additional bank transaction charges of Rs 2.50 plus 18% GST. Again for transaction of more than Rs.2 lakh, customers were Rs 5 plus 18% GST and the bank transaction charges of Rs 25 plus 18% GST and so on and so forth. It seems that everything to do with banks these days means having to pay for their services. Even on Immediate Payment Service (IMPS), customers could transfer funds on a 24x7 and 365 days of the year but they cannot transfer more than Rs.2 lakh. This facility is only available via Internet banking. As consumerism grows so also use of credit and debit cards. On these too, the bank levies various charges. With the new RBI notification banks are allowed to charge customers for more than 5 usages of ATMs in a month. The charges can vary from Rs 8 to 20 depending on the type of transaction. Banks charge around Rs 15 per quarter for SMS alerts. On a debit card, there are usually two types of charges. One is the annual fees that a bank charges for issuing the card to the customer. Two, is the convenience fees that is charged at the merchant outlets for swiping the card at a point-ofsale terminal. Any customer is entitled to eight free monthly transactions at an ATM (five at his home bank ATMs and three at non- home bank ATMs) in a metro city. For every transaction, a bank charges Rs 20 per financial transaction and Rs 8.5 for nonfinancial transactions. The annual fee for debit card varies from Rs 100 to 500 depending on the card. Banks also charge in case you request add on cards for family members. Other charges include annual ATM maintenance fee, fee for RTGS, fee for NTFS, free SMS alert, internet banking fee, among others. Here too, there is no fixed rate for these charges, and they vary from one bank to another. Therefore, the question is with a majority of public sector banks running in loss due to piles of non-performing assets (NPA) accumulated over years, are banks trying to find a way out to at least meet their operational costs by charging ordinary customers?

DailyDevotion The Spiritually Vigorous Saint …that I may know Him… —Philippians 3:10 A saint is not to take the initiative toward self-realization, but toward knowing Jesus Christ. A spiritually vigorous saint never believes that his circumstances simply happen at random, nor does he ever think of his life as being divided into the secular and the sacred. He sees every situation in which he finds himself as the means of obtaining a greater knowledge of Jesus Christ, and he has an attitude of unrestrained abandon and total surrender about him. The Holy Spirit is determined that we will have the realization of Jesus Christ in every area of our lives, and He will bring us back to the same point over and over again until we do. Self-realization only leads to the glorification of good works, whereas a saint of God glorifies Jesus Christ through his good works. Whatever we may be doing— even eating, drinking, or washing disciples’ feet— we have to take the initiative of realizing and recognizing Jesus Christ in it. Every phase of our life has its counterpart in the life of Jesus. Our Lord realized His relationship to the Father even in the most menial task. “Jesus, knowing…that He had come from God and was going to God,…took a towel…and began to wash the disciples’ feet…” (John 13:3-5). The aim of a spiritually vigorous saint is “that I may know Him…” Do I know Him where I am today? If not, I am failing Him. I am not here for self-realization, but to know Jesus Christ. In Christian work our initiative and motivation are too often simply the result of realizing that there is work to be done and that we must do it. Yet that is never the attitude of a spiritually vigorous saint. His aim is to achieve the realization of Jesus Christ in every set of circumstances.

Indian democracy controlled by politicians or by the bureaucracy?


he people of India have given a huge mandate to the present BJP-led NDA Government to give a big push to reformation of various sectors in the Country. However, we all know that the biggest hurdle to reformation in this Country is excessive red tapism and bureaucratic control of sectors that requires specialisation. In a way it make no sense that the important organisation like the Army, the Navy and the Airforce should be controlled by an IAS officers. Likewise technical Central Ministries should be headed by non-IAS officers as unlike the 20th Century where there was very less automation, the 21st Century is the age of specialisation and technology will play a very important role in defining the future of a Country. Whereas the British Raj system of bureaucracy that has prevailed in our Country for so many years has done enough damage to the socio-economic de-

velopment of this great Country, the British and for that matter almost all the developed Nations in the world have now gone in favour of Corporate culture rather than bureaucratic culture. However, in our Country the bureaucracy still tries very hard to control all cadres recruited under UPSC and now services like IFS, IPS, IRS, IES etc have been pushed to the corner more so because the Department of Personnel and Training(DoPT) which controls all the UPSC recruited cadres are all manned by IAS officers and therefore all the grievances of all other services are being outrightly ignored thus making India a world champion in bureaucracy. In some North Eastern States some of the Chief Secretaries are of Joint Secretary rank whereas traditionally the seniormost or next seniormost IAS officer within the State cadre should be choosen as the Chief Secretary.

Rejoinder on ‘Nagas hills tribal struggle for sovereignty from India’


propos the item published in Nagaland post on July 9 (page 6), I doubt the identity of the writer as a true Naga. Whether he is writing intentionally or unintentionally but we are sorry for his ignorance about omission of names of important Naga leaders who signed the 16 point agreement on the basis of which the state government is functioning till now. There is no person called Putimo Chakhesang in Chakhesang tribe under Phek district. His real name was late Pudiinu Demo, in short, P. Demo. Another important leader whose name is omitted was late Goyiepra Kenyie who went to Delhi as a delegate and he sacrificed his life. After signing the agreement he died in Delhi. N. Theyo, Ex-minister & senior citizen, Midland, Kohima


Similiarly many officers are becoming principal secretaries at very young age in the State Governments leaving no room for officers from other UPSC services to come on deputation. In short this is how IAS are controlling both Central and State Governments. To make the matter worse some posts like Finance, Home, Personnel and Administrative reforms and Planning are strictly encadered for IAS officers in State Government leaving no room for other UPSC cadres to penetrate and in Central Government Departments only IAS officers in DoPT decides who should be Secretary or additional secretary or Joint secretary of a Department and the Cabinet Ministers who have very little knowledge of how bureaucracy works nor mally ag rees with whatever proposals that is being placed by IAS officers. Therefore there is a need to post officers from Army, Navy, Air-

force, IPS, IFS, IRS, IES etc in DoPT and the selection process for the post of Secretary, Additional Secretary, Joint Secretary etc should also include officers from Defence and non-IAS UPSC cadres as they too have undergone the same rigorous process of recruitment through UPSC. At the State level there is a need to clearly define the minimum years of service for the post of Chief Secretary, Additional Chief Secretary, Principal Secretary, Secretary etc and encadrement of posts should be withdrawn immediately to allow officers from other UPSC recruited cadres to come on deputation. Till such time the reformation of bureaucracy is done both in Central and State level the dream of making India a super power or a developed Country will not happen and India as a Country will be known the world over as a bureaucratic super power or bureaucratic world champion.

Meanwhile the steps taken by the current BJP Government in bringing specialists as Joint Secretary through lateral entry is an excellent step and more management experts, specialist, scientists and corporate professionals should be brought as Joint Secretary is every Ministry and if required even at the level of Additional Secretary and Secretary. May be it is high time that India as a Country make a special study on how bureaucracy works in developed Countries like Japan, US, UK, France, Germany, Singapore etc by engaging renowned international consultants otherwise the present boring bureaucracy will continue to say that Indian bureaucracy is the best in the world and we will remain a backward Country inspite of having tremendous human resources. The world today is moving towards business corporate culture where economic strength prevails over military strength and

it is felt that as long as the BJP led Government allows bureaucracy to control the defence forces and suppress all other specialised UPSC cadres and Corporate world, the people of this Country will feel that the mandate given by the people to the BJP led Government for quick reformation is by and large getting defeated and people in general will continue to feel that any Government is the same and life goes on as usual without any meaningful changes in their life time. Thus the big question still exist as to why the Government which is now having huge majority in the parliament is hesitating in bringing officials from Defense forces and other UPSC recruited cadres in decision making process and the bigger question remains whether the democracy we have is controlled by politicians or by the all powerful bureaucracy.

Banks blunt denial to sanction loans to PMEGP beneficiaries


he Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP), is a pilot programme of the central government, one of the best scheme initiated towards creating solutions by means of providing opportunities through loans and subsidies to those young entrepreneurs and educated unemployed of the country who are selected and eligible, in their respective state level. The respective state government as the implementing agency for the scheme directs the banking sector to provide the loans to the genuine selected benificiaries, thus easing in the implementation of the work programme under the PMEGP scheme. Likewise in our state the state government has been carrying out this important beneficial pilot programme of the central government with efficiency after the launching of the PMEGP

Scheme on the 15th of August, 2008. Many eligible young entrepreneurs and the educated unemployed in our state has benefitted under this programme. Our appreciation to the state government and those banks that are doing this difficult task with sincere dedication and effort for the success of this scheme and for the upliftment of the state citizens through this scheme. But of recent records and statements till date by those beneficiaries under Mokokchung district who are yet to receive their rightful earned and entitled Loan and Subsidies from those banks allotted to them, the story is different and very shameful and unacceptable on the part of those banks that are not releasing the Loans and Subsidies to a few genuine beneficiaries from the last few years. These beneficiaries under Mokokchung district who are

routed through the respective District KVIB & DIC departments and selected under the district task force headed by the deputy commissioner as the esteemed chairman conducted following due procedure and protocol has been knocking on the concerned department and the banks namely- (1) AXIS bank, Mokokchung, (2) HDFC bank, Mokokchung, (3) ICICI bank, Mokokchung, (these banks that were directed to sanction the loans and subsidies to the genuine selected beneficiaries) but their appeal and constant request falling on deaf ears and of no avail. The Mokokchung district PMEGP beneficiaries association convenor, Walter Longkumer and general secretary, Imotemjen Ozukum, on behalf of the beneficiaries appeal to the state government of Nagaland, the higher authorities of the concerned departments

and the respective banks to especially consider our pleas and request the same to facilitate our demands-demand to release our entitled loan and subsidies as this is our startup, our chance and oppurtunity to find a way and means to establish our career and business and reduce unemployment problem and being a burden to the society and the state. The association urges all the young entrepreneurs and the educated unemployed of every district in Nagaland to let this be a wake-up call, an eye-opener of the intentions of those agencies, banks that are against the welfare, against the goodwill and opportunities of the good citizens of this country and encourages all to stand united. Walter Longkumer, convenor and Imotemjen Ozukum secretary of Mokokchung District PMEGP Beneficiaries Association

Rejoinder on ‘Mythical Legends and Legendary Myths...’

elightful to see a scholarly article in the Nagaland based daily newspaper of Nagaland Post by one Menka Singh with a titled “Mythical Legends and Legendary Myths: A Case Study of Khonoma, Nagaland” that appeared on July 7, 2019 (article was in Sunday Post Special Supplement on June 7, 2019 but was circulated to the public along with July 7, 2019). Appreciate the dedication and hard work of the author who tries to unearth the cosmic scholastic field for wider audience and knowledge promotion in the field. Of course, profuse ingenious knowledge and information of indigenous Naga people about their origin, migration and settlement, which is still preserved and stored in the mode of social memory and oral literature, largely represented through the medium of folktales, dances, folksongs, monoliths, attires, arts, legends and myths. Myths are essential for every philosophical and epistemological understanding of human origin and migration that is beyond human comprehension. To come to realistic conclusion on any information about myths and legends that has been passed on orally for generations any serious scholar is expected to do comprehensive and meticulous field works. It is imperative to methodically verify and authenticate from diverse sources while narrating the myths and legends

before jumping to draw a conclusion. A well read scholar needs to take time to corroborate the sources to minimise discrepancies. Otherwise, any half baked and concocted information can led to serious distortion of information of what has been widely agreed upon on various myths and legends. While appreciating the hard work of the author and her academic contribution, we are constraint to make certain things clear for all time for public consumption and for the author to make necessary changes in her future article to shun further distortion. While analysing one should be prudent enough to differentiate between myths from that of historical facts to make the information coherent and to come to cogent conclusion. This is more challenging to study for a society where there is no history of text and documentation but social memory and oral tradition that has been handed down since generations is the only obtainable source of literature. Thus, it is imperative to distinguish between myths and historical facts although the two may link to each other in any narration and discourse on Makhelian (means those people who claimed themselves to have dispersed from Makhel, a village in Mao region of Naga inhabited areas in northern Manipur bordering Nagaland). Although various evidences and sources at Makhel as

a place of human origination are shrouded in mystery since they are yet to be authenticated the presence of various stone megaliths, myths and historical specifics at Makhel and its vicinity suggests that it is a point of departure, if not of origin. Those Nagas who acknowledged the Makhelian tradition group themselves as Tenyimi that include Angami, Chakhesang, Mao, Maram, Inpui, Pochury, Poumai, Rengma, Thangal, and Zeliangrong (compose of Rongmei, Zemei & Liangmei ). Tenyimi is based on acceptance of common ancestry and that ancestral blood flows in the veins of their brethren. Currently, the Tenyimi are found in the states of Assam, Manipur and Nagaland in India’s North East. With the dispersal from Makhel the Poumai internally sub-divided into Paomata, Leopaona and Chülevei further migrated to their respective place from Saranamei (Kosümei in Mao). Likewise, Rongmei, Zemei, Liangmei and Inpui tribes first settled at Makuilongdi following dispersed from Makhel where they further migrated to their respective place. It is quite possible that some northern Naga tribes might have initially settled at Khezhakeno (Kozhomei in Mao) subsequent to disperse since Makhel and then to different places. This may be the reason why some northern Naga tribes considered Khezhakeno as place of dispersal.

Of the scores of evidences and legends which explain that Makhel is a place of dispersal for various Naga tribes, who called themselves as Tenyimi, the tale and significance of Chüte Bu Kajü (wild pear tree) is realistically prominent. A general perception exists amongst the Tenyimi that at the time of their grand dispersal they have had a discourse beneath the Chüte Bu Kajü and made a bond that they will meet again. Chüte Bu Kajü is not a myth but a piece of historical fact in the account of Makhelian race, which is still there for everyone to see. The stated tree is located at Shajouba village (Charangho) where a godly woman Paichara-a once lived, who is seen at times as a young teenage girl and sometimes as an elderly woman and later ascended to heaven on a string of yarn, which is at a distance of 3 kms east of NH 2, Dimapur-Imphal road and not at “Chajouba village” as noted in the article. Though there may be different versions on the origin of the tree, Charanghomei as the custodian of the tree believed that it sprouts itself and not planted by human. As a mark of respect and honour, if any branch of the tree is fallen/broken, genna (mass holiday/abstention from usual daily agricultural activities) is observed beginning from Charangho till the last village where the people claimed to have migrated from Makhel. Whoever

first notices the fallen branch or stem shall keep away the broken pieces from the public view as mark of honour and accordingly inform to village chief or village elders for necessary action to embark on. Observation of genna can carry out together with number of neighbouring villages on the same day as and when they came to know the information of the fallen/broken of the branch. The observation of this genna is as strong and mournful as passing away of a fellow being. Fruits of the tree are forbidden to eat perhaps the only

one of such prohibition in the Naga inhabited areas. The stem and trunk of the tree will also not use for anything such as firewood or woodcraft. Likewise, its stem and trunk should not hack or impair in any form unless so naturally. A popular perception exists that in the direction where new branch springs up is where the population get flourishes and vice versa. The tree symbolises unison and oneness of the Nagas.

Raise the issue before it is too late

The construction of side drains/nullahs between Dimapur and Chumoukedima will be filled by silt (sand) deposits and eventually blocked if proper workmanship is not taken care of by authority concerned. The road is raw as of now and drains are already being filled with much sand and silt. The work seems to be not properly supervised by technical staff but left to mistries and labourers who make mistakes in finding proper levels of elevation of drain and it is being knocked down time and again at several places. Holes made for road water entries are not at proportionate levels. Rods are sparsely used with local sand for covering slabs, which can never last long.

on railways in the coming years and wondered what happened to incumbent minister Piyush Goyal’s predecessor Suresh Prabhu’s claim that Rs 8.5 lakh crore will be spent. “What happened to Prabhu’s claim? Now you have added Rs 50 lakh crore more? It is clear you intend to sell its assets,” Chowdhury said. Mocking the government’s claim on investment in railways, he said it is like seeking a tent to sleep when there is not even a mat.

Centre to support Nagaland in mithun development... (From p-1)

Earlier, while congratulating Singh on taking over the newly-created Union ministry of fisheries, animal husbandry & dairying, Khing also briefed the former about the potential of animal husbandry in Nagaland due to its rich natural vegetation and food habit of the people. He also apprised the Union minister about the importance of pig and mithun in the State, adding that both were part of the local culture. He said there was a need to promote and conserve these two livestock species to meet their increasing demand in the State. In this regard, Khing urged Singh to provide all possible help for promotion of piggery and dairy, besides for mithun conservation and development in the state. Later in the day, the State government officials called on National Cooperative Development Corporation chief director Ashok Pillai at his office in New Delhi and discussed the modalities and possibilities for promoting pig value chain through credit linkage in the State. This was stated in a press release by Kuolie Mere, PRO of Nagaland House, New Delhi.

Infrastructure Development Corporation (NHIDCL) had begun compensation for 5th phase, leaving behind the 2nd phase for unknown reason. The committee requested Sümi Hoho to ponder seriously on the matter why the road project had been hampered so long and also find out the genuineness of its demand, instead of directing the construction company to complete the road project within the stipulated time. SSAALWC urged the Zunheboto deputy commissioner to take up the matter with the authority concerned and clarify on the present position regarding compensation for the 2nd phase.

The railways’ operating ratio was 98.4 per cent in 2017- 18, way above the government’s estimate, the Congress leader said, adding its revenue and expenditure also fell short of official claims. “But you do not stop selling dreams,” he said. Referring to the earlier claims about collaboration with private and foreign players, he said nothing much has happened on these fronts. “It has become a government of MoUs,” he said. He accused the government of privatising profitmaking production units of railways, including the one in Rae Bareli, the Lok Sabha constituency of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi. Railways is a social commitment and not just a commercial establishment, Chowdhury said and wondered how is it possible for the government to see the dream of bullet trains if the Congress had not done anything.

India will be most populated country by 2027: UN report NEW DELHI, JUL 11 (AGENCIES): According to data provided by the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, India itself has a population of 1.37 billion, making it the second most populated country in the world. In another 8 years, it may surpass China and become the most populated country. By 2050, India’s population may increase by another 273 million. Also, 35% of the country’s population is concentrated in the states Bihar, UP, and Maharashtra. Despite it being observed for the past 30 years, overpopulation continues to be a concern. The idea of observing the World Population Day was conceived after an alarm was raised when the world population crossed the 5 bn mark. Yet, the world population kept increasing exponentially, and it is set to cross the 7.7-bn mark soon. The figures should concern India more than any other country at the moment as a high birth rate continues. According to a FirstPost report, measures such as assured home delivery of contraceptives and distribution of family planning kits by social health activists have been provided by the Central government to control population growth. The UN data further mentioned that the world’s population increases annually by 83 million approximately. They have also predicted that, by 2030, the world population will be at 8.6 billion.

J&K ‘dispute’ between India, Pak; should be resolved through dialogue S R I NAG A R , J U L 1 1 (PTI): Kashmir is a “dispute” between India and Pakistan which needed to be resolved through dialogue and not through military might, National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah Thursday said. Addressing workers at Hazratbal on the occasion of 19th death anniversary of his mother Begum Jehan Ara, the Lok Sabha member from Srinagar said, “Kashmir is a dispute between two countries (India and Pakistan). Whatever they say, it is a dispute. The issue is still in the United Nations. The UN observers are still here and in Pakistan held

only when the people of India and Pakistan talk (with each other) and then talk to others... This should be done so that no one should feel that the solution so achieved is a loss for either India or Pakistan or for the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.” Referring to India’s in-

sistence that talks can begin only if terrorism ends, Abdullah said, “Guns still roar in Afghanistan, but talks are still going on. Why cannot that policy be implemented here? He said dialogue was the only option to address the Kashmir issue. “Nothing will be

achieved by military might or force or coercion... they cannot put off the flame, which is burning here, by such things,” he said. Asked if talks should be held with all stake-holders, including Hurriyat Conference, in Kashmir, Abdullah said dialogue should be with everyone.

NEW DELHI, JUL 11 (PTI): Slamming the Modi government over its handling of the Railways Ministry, the Congress Wednesday accused it of trying to sell out railway assets and said the BJP-led NDA is “selling dreams” to people without doing much on the ground. Leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said in the Lok Sabha that the aviation minister wants to sell Air India, the railways minister wants to “sell” its assets and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he alleged, will one day “sell” country. Initiating a debate on demands for grants under the Ministry of Railways, Chowdhury said the BJPled NDA government has consistently failed to meet its targets since it came to power in 2014. Taking a dig at the government, he said in the budget it has spoken about spending Rs 50 lakh crore

Striking an alarmist note, the cabinet minister warned: “India appears to be heading like in 1947 towards another a ‘saanskritik vibhajan’ (partition in the name of culture). All political parties will have to come forward for a birth control law.” Later, he told some news channels in Delhi that strong measures must be in place to check population explosion. “I hold the view that t h o s e w h o h ave m o r e than two children should be stripped of their voting rights. And this provision must be applicable to all communities. No exemp-

tion should be made for any religious group just because it insists that its tenets disapprove of birth control measures, he said. The BJP leader’s views met with disapproval from the opposition RJD-Congress combine in the state. Bihar RJD president Ram Chandra Purbe termed Singhs comments an example of ochhi rajneeti (petty politics) since it appeared to blame the minorities for the ballooning population. “From where does the Union minister get such fanciful ideas? Can he point out any provision in the Constitution under which a person can be disenfranchised for having more than a specified number of children?” asked Congress MLC Prem Chandra Mishra. Singh has often kicked up controversies with his remarks targeting Muslims. A case of model code violation was registered against him during the Lok Sabha elections when he was in the fray from Begusarai for making objectionable comments against Muslims.

you better goals. In 1990-91 India’s economy was 320 billion dollars, it doubled to 618 billion dollars in 2003-04. “Then UPA government came and from 618 billion dollars, it doubled to 1.22 trillion dollars in four years. It doubled again to 2.48 trillion dollars in September 2017. It will double to 5 trillion dollars in the next five years. It does not require a Prime Minister or a Finance minister. It will double. That is the magic of compounding,” he said, adding that any money lender or borrower knows this.

PATNA, JUL 11 (PTI): Union minister Giriraj Singh on Thursday expressed alarm over the “population explosion” in the country since Independence and favoured disenfranchisement of those who sired more than two children. The BJP leader from Bihar, known for making controversial remarks, shared a graphic on his official Twitter handle on World Population Day which showed that India’s population grew by a staggering 366 per cent between 1947 and 2019 as against only 113 per cent rise in sparsely populated US. Singh, the Minister of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, wrote in Hindi--”In India, population explosion is disturbing the balance of economy, social harmony and resources. One of the reasons (for failure to check it) is dhaarmik vyavadhan (religious obstacles),” apparently hinting at Muslims. Several leaders of the Hindu right have often blamed Muslims for the spurt in country’s population.

receipts from revenue, in her Budget Speech in Lok Sabha on July 5. Chidambaram said the Finance Minister should have mentioned figures in her speech as people deserve to know broad numbers as they do not go through annexures and other Budget documents. “I cannot recall a Budget Speech so bereft of macro data,” he said, and urged the Finance Ministry to ensure important data gets mention in the Budget Speech in future. “There is this goal of a 5 trillion dollar economy. Good, very good. I will give

the government to pay serious attention to what we are saying, in the spirit of genuine friendliness to get our economy going. Please ensure that bold structural reforms are done to boost economic growth,” the senior Congress leader noted. He also rued that there was no clarity on the exact projections on the GDP. Chidambaram said at one place the GDP growth has been projected at 7 per cent and at other place it is 8 per cent. “One per cent makes a huge difference,” he said, adding the government, CGA, and Chief Economic Advisor could not present a unified picture for the current fiscal. He further said structural reforms were a must for achieving economic growth, but the Budget does not talk about it. “Show me on one structural reform. There is not one,” he said. He also took a jibe on the government’s claim that India would be a USD 5 trillion economy. The size of the economy is currently estimated at USD 2.7 trillion and is growing at a nominal growth.

He said if the nominal growth of economy is 12 per cent, it is double in 6 years and if it grows at 11 per cent, it will double in 7 years. “So please don’t put this pie in the sky before people of the country saying 5 trillion dollars is equal to Chandrayan landing on the moon. 5 trillion dollar is simple arithmetic. So don’t put this pie in the sky. Come down to reality. “ T h e e c o n o my i s weak. The budget speech is insipid. The weak economy needed a bold approach. I think the prime minister has enough will and determination to take bold decisions,” he said. Chidambaram said it is not necessary to say everything in the budget speech and expected this government to come back and tell what structural reforms and what bold steps they will take on how they will improve investment, which is the only engine available to spur India’s growth to 8 per cent this year and to 10 per cent the next year. “I am afraid, this budget does not inspire us to believe that this will happen. I can only appeal to


NEW DELHI, JUL 11 (PTI): The Union Budget 2019-20 does not chalk out a clear roadmap to take India on the path of high economic growth and lacks bold steps and structural reforms, Congress leader P Chidambaram said Thursday in Rajya Sabha. Participating in the debate on the Budget, the former finance minister said the country’s economy is weak and requires bold steps to take it forward on fast growth track, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi should take. He also termed Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s speech as “insipid” and said the budget does not have any steps to propel investment and savings. Chidambaram downplayed the Modi government’s call of making India a USD 5 trillion economy by 202425, saying the economy itself doubles due to the “magic of compounding” in six to seven years and does not require a prime minister or finance minister. He sought to corner the finance minister, saying she did not present macro economic data, including

Puri further said that as per the prevailing regulations, airfares are neither established nor regulated by the government. “All scheduled domestic airlines are required to display route-wise and category-wise fares on their respective websites in compliance to the regulations,” he said. Domestic air passenger traffic in May increased by 2.96 per cent after a slump in April, according to the data released by aviation regulator DGCA in June. In April, domestic air passenger traffic had dropped by 4.5 per cent over the same period last year. Suspension of operations by Jet Airways on April 17 due to lack of funds was considered to be one of the primary reasons why domestic air traffic saw a fall in that month.

New Delhi, Jul 11 (Agencies): The government on Thursday said that the suspension of Jet Airways operations led to reduction in capacity in the domestic sectors, which resulted in a marginal hike in airfares, reported new agency ANI. “Meetings were held to sensitize the airlines in this regard,” Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri was quoted as saying in the ANI report. “Monitoring of airfare was started by DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) on certain routes, selected on a random basis to ensure that the airlines do not charge airfares outside the range declared by the,” he said. “During monitoring it was observed that airfares remained within the fare bracket established.

the US dollar Thursday after dovish comments by US Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell boosted emerging market currencies. However, firming oil prices capped the gains, traders said. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local unit opened on a firm footing at 68.31, and shuttled between a high of 68.30 and a low of 68.48 during the day. The rupee finally closed at 68.44, down 14 paise over its previous close. The r upee had declined by 7 paise to close at 68.58 against the greenback Wednesday, pressured by persistent foreign fund outflows and firming crude oil prices. World stocks rose and emerging market currencies appreciated after US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell told a Congressional committee that the central bank is ready to “act as appropriate” to boost growth amid multiple headwinds, bolstering hopes of a rate cut as early as this month. “Rupee strengthened

Struggling with poor cash flows from services and a severe financial crunch due to a huge workforce of 1.76 lakh, BSNL is looking for non-core asset monetisation under the broad policy of the government where DIPAM is the nodal department. BSNL’s corporate office has circulated a list of land parcels proposed for monetisation through the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) in the first instance. The company is in the process identifying land parcels all over the country for monetisation, which as per its internal estimate is valued at Rs. 20,000 crore in 2018-19. Time-bound monetisation of land assets, mobile towers and fibre networks will help BSNL earn some money in these tough times of falling revenues and rising losses. “The total area of land parcels, which are spread

across the country and have in-built structures, buildings and factories, is 32.77 lakh square metres (sq m) and the spareable land parcel is 31.97 lakh sq m,” said an earlier BSNL corporate office letter to its circles seeking their comments. “The fair value of spareable parcel as on April 1, 2015, is Rs. 17,397 crore and the estimated present fair value of these lands is Rs. 20,296 crore. The enhancement in valuation is based on cost inflation index for FY 2014-15 as 240 and FY 2018-19 as 280. “The valuation of these land parcels is proposed to be done along with the structures lying in the parcel after the in-principle approval for sale or long tem lease by the government. The cost of buildings has not been included in the Fair Value of land parcels”, it added. BSNL telecom factories at Mumbai, Kolkata, West Bengal, Ghaziabad, Jabalpur and wireless stations, as well as other offices and staff colonies have been included in the list of land parcels to be monetised. Some of these parcels are mutated, while some are not, and the status of some of these parcels are freehold and some are on leasehold. The gover nment is planning a revival scheme for BSNL and MTNL.

New Delhi, Jul 11 (PTI): Gold prices Thursday zoomed Rs 930 to Rs 35,800 per 10 gram in the national capital tracking positive overseas trend after US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell hinted at a rate cut soon that prompted investors to move towards safe-haven assets like the yellow metal. Silver also followed the suit and rose by Rs 300 to Rs 39,200 per kg due to more offtake by industrial units and coin makers. “Spot gold jumped to a one-week high in the international market due to a feeble dollar after dovish comments from the US Federal Reserve chairman. The Fed chair’s cautious stance on the US economy raised hopes of an imminent interest rate cut that spurred investor sentiments towards safe assets like gold,” said Hareesh V, head, Geojit Financial Services. He further said weak global economic outlook and unsolved trade war tensions between the US and China are the other positive drivers of the yellow metal.


NEW DELHI, Jul 11 (IANS): State-run BSNL or Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd is expected to post losses of Rs. 14,202 crore for the financial year 2018-19, the government said. The revenue of the public sector telecom company is slated to be around Rs. 19,308 crore, Telecom and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha. He also said that “fierce competition in the mobile segment” and “absence of 4G services in the data centric telecom market” were among the main reasons for the company’s losses. In line with sector trends, BSNL has seen a dip in its revenue after the entry of Reliance Jio in the market in 2016. “Low tariffs due to fierce competition in the mobile segment, high staff cost and absence of 4G services (except in few places) in the data-centric telecom market are the main reasons for losses of BSNL,” Mr Prasad said. BSNL’s salary expenditure is set to be a massive 75 per cent of the firm’s total expenses at Rs. 14,488 crore. Its provisional loss in 201516 was Rs. 4,859 crore, Rs. 4,793 crore 2016-17, and Rs. 7,993 crore in 2017-18. The company’s revenue is pegged at around Rs. 19,308 crore for 2018-19,

Taylor Swift is world’s highest paid celebrity S inger Taylor Swift wa s n a m e d t h e world’s highest-paid entertainer on Wednesday with her earnings of $185 million over the past year, beating reality TV star Kylie Jenner, who ranked second on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. Swift was also closely followed by two members of the wider Kardashian clan — reality star turned cosmetics queen Kylie Jenner and rapper Kanye West. The annual Forbes Celebrity 100 list also saw soccer stars Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar among the top 10, along with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and 1970s soft rock band The Eagles, who embarked on a new tour in 2018. West, the husband of Kim Kardashian, returned to the list after a four-year absence. Forbes estimated his pre-tax earnings at $150 million, driven mostly by his popular Yeezy sneaker line, putting him in third place. Kim Kardashian ranked No.26 on the list.

Swift, hot off her 2018 “Reputation” tour and album, earned an estimated $185 million to take the No. 1 spot. The 29-yearold pop star also topped the list in 2016 after her best-selling “1989” tour and album. Jenner, 21, the halfsister of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, came in second place after bringing in an estimated

$170 million thanks to her booming online lip kits and cosmetics company. Earlier this year Forbes declared Jenner to be the world’s youngest billionaire. Forbes compiled its 2019 list by estimating pre-tax earnings from June 2018-June 2019, before deducting fees for managers, based on data from Nielsen, touring trade pub-

Roger announces special ‘Us + Them’ concert film

‘Stranger Things’ creators reveal what fans can expect from season 4

Chapman, son of Dog the Bounty Hunter, hospitalized


oger Waters has announced a new concert film which was made during his recent ‘Us + Them’ tour. The former Pink Floyd musician concluded the mammoth tour back in December, having performed to over two million people across 150 shows which spanned 18 months. The ‘Us + Them’ tour will now live on in an upcoming concert film of the same name, which has been co-directed by Waters and Sean Evans (who also directed 2014’s Roger Waters: The Wall). Comprised of footage from the four nights Waters and his band played at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome in June 2018, the film will also showcase the “state-of-theart visual production and breath-taking sound” from the tour. “Waters collaborates once more with Sean Evans… to deliver this creatively pioneering film that inspires with its powerful music and message of human rights, liberty and love,” a synopsis promises. Us + Them will be screened in cinemas on October 2 and 6 only, and tickets go on sale next Wednesday (July 17). (NME)



he creators of S t r a n ge r T h i n g s have said that the show’s fourth season could head outside of Hawkins for the first time. The acclaimed Netflix drama returned for its third offering last week, with critics hailing it as the best season yet. But as the sci-fi show continues to smash streaming records and generate wild fan theories, talk has inevitably turned to what’s next. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Matt Duffer explained how season 4 is “going to open up a little bit”.


ndian rap star Badshah has broken a world record with his new number, "Paagal", dethroning the popular South Korean band BTS, by crossing 75 million-plus views in 24 hours. Within minutes of its release, the song --an all-out rhythmic pop banger --- became a viral sensation. "I am ecstatic and I am overwhelmed with the amount of love we have received in the last 24 hours," Badshah said. "'Paagal' was made with the focused intent of taking music from India across borders and making our presence felt. My fans just went all out to help me achieve my dream. We're going big with this one," he added about the song, which released on Sony Music India's YouTube channel. BTS' "Boy with luv" featuring Halsey was the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours before this. It had achieved 74,600,000 views from April 12 to 13

Specifically, he claims that season four will be defined by “plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins”. Ross Duffer added: “We don’t want to write ourselves in a corner, so we try to have these early discussions with the writers just to make sure that we’re setting ourselves up to go in the right direction. “We don’t know a lot, but we do know a lot of the big broad strokes. At the end of season two, we knew about Billy. We knew that the Russians were going to come in. We didn’t know the mall and stuff, but again, we know these

big broad strokes. That’s sort of where we are in season four.” He added: “We have the big broad strokes. It’s just now about filling in those lines in the details. We’re pretty excited about where it’s potentially going to go. Again, like we said, it’s going to feel very different than this season. “But I think that’s the right thing to do and I think it’ll be exciting.” Meanwhile, star David Harbour recently denied rumours linking him to a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

eland Chapman, the son of Dog the Bounty Hunter, was reportedly hospitalized in Alabama this week due to an injury sustained while he was on a manhunt mission with his father — who was back at work for the first time after his wife’s death. The two were chasing a fugitive wanted for harassment in Colorado when Chapman tore his ACL while trying to subdue the suspect. Leland will be laid up for approximately six weeks, a spokesperson told The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), one of the key ligaments that help stabilize the knee joint, connects the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia). The suspect’s apprehension was being filmed for an upcoming show of “Dog’s Most Wanted.” Leland Chapman lives in Alabama, according to Beth Chapman, Dog’s late wife and Leland’s stepmother, lost her two-year battle with throat cancer late last month. A memorial is planned this Saturday in her home state of Colorado. (FoxNews)

ink is fed up with being told how to parent. The pop singer posted a photo of her children on Instagram earlier this week, depicting them running through sprinklers. She used the post as an opportunity to poke fun at a recent wave of negative comments directed towards her parenting on social media, captioning the photo, “Here’s a picture of my child running through water. It wasn’t even filtered. What a waste of water. And no helmet? I hope she had sunscreen. If she slips and falls she may be traumatized for life. And her mother wasn’t even there. I was..... gasp.... working!!!! In another country!” She also added the hashtags, “#instagramisfun #f--ktheparentingpolice #ifyoufeellikeunfollowingpleasegoddoitquickly #opinionsarelikea--holes #somanya--holes” T h e “ R a i s e Yo u r Glass” singer has been a frequent target for criticism on social media, with both her and husband Carey Hart being on the receiving end of numerous comments

how much she shares about her family on social media as a whole. “People went as far as saying, ‘Someone should call Child Services,’ because he didn’t have a diaper on, and ‘How dare I?’ — just some of the nastiest things,” the singer told Ellen. “I cried

judging the couple on their parenting. One such instance occurred earlier this year when the star posted an image of her two children looking at a pelican, with her 2-year-old son, Jameson, missing a diaper. Pink later deleted and re-uploaded the image, insisting she didn’t realize her son was diaperless at the time she posted the picture. She then disabled comments on her posts entirely and blasted many of these mean-spirited commenters in a lengthy caption. “There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis?

About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper. I deleted it because you’re all f--king disgusting,” the singer angrily wrote. “And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, and the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives.” In an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in April, Pink described how the negative reactions to her posts affected her emotionally, claiming they left her in tears. She also vowed to cut back on

so hard after that because I like to share my family. ... I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I just won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it.” Pink’s latest album, “Hurts 2B Human,” was released back in April. (FoxNews)

held 1-1 by Bohemians Nigeria, Senegal reach Africa Cup semi-finals Chelsea in Frank Lampard’s first match

CAIRO, Jul 11 (Agencies): Nigeria sneaked into the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals when defender William Troost Ekong scored with one minute remaining to give them a 2-1 win over a gallant South Africa as the tournament served up more drama on Wednesday. Troost Ekong, left unmarked, turned the ball in with his knee from a corner to leave the South Africans heart-broken after they had fought their way back into the match which seemed to be out of their reach. Samuel Chukwueze, recalled to the side after missing the previous round, put the Super Eagles in front when he scored at the second attempt in the 27th minute. Nigeria stayed in control, missed chances and paid the price when Bongani Zungu headed an equaliser in the 71st minute with South Africa’s first shot on target. The goal was initially ruled offside but then awarded after a VAR check. Nigeria, who will meet Ivory Coast or Algeria in the last four, went ahead with the first really dangerous attack of the match. A l ex I wo b i b u r s t down the left and pulled the ball back into the area to Chukwueze whose first

effort was blocked by a defender but scored after it rebounded back to him. Nigeria looked too strong all-round for their rivals and nearly extended their lead early in the second half with a 25-metre free kick from Oghenekaro Etebo but Ronwen Williams turned it on the bar. South Africa struggled to get a look-in but the Super Eagles repeatedly failed to turn the mazy runs of

Ahmed Musa and Chukwueze into goals. Then, from out of the blue, South Africa equalised as Percy Tau lofted a free kick into the area, it was flicked on and superbly headed in by Zungu. It was initially disallowed but then given by a VAR check that took nearly three minutes. Extra-time was looming until Nigeria won a corner on the left, Williams

missed the ball and Troost Ekong prodded it home. Meanwhile, Senegal’s Idrissa Gana Gueye scored 20 minutes from time to take them through as expected to the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals but their 1-0 victory over minnows Benin, who finished with 10 men, was a largely laboured affair. Gana Gueye’s goal was one of the few highlights at Cairo’s 30 June

Stadium with the midfielder setting up the move and then finishing much to the relief to Africa’s topranked team as they struggled to break down their determined opponents. Gana Gueye, who had possession just outside the centre circle, passed the ball directly forward to Sadio Mane and then sprinted upfield to virtually steal the ball off his team mate and tuck away a neat finish. Gana Gueye might have had a second goal some eight minutes from time with a similar surging run through the midfield but was pulled back on the edge of the Benin penalty area by defender Olivier Verdon, who was promptly sent off. Benin had a couple of chances, both falling to 34-year-old striker Mickael Pote, who was narrowly wide with a cheeky backheel in the 26th and should have scored straight after halftime but hit a tame effort straight at keeper Alfred Gomis. But there was to be no repeat for the small west African country of their heroics in the previous round when they eliminated Morocco in a penalty shootout. Senegal will feature in the semi-finals for a fourth time but on the first occasion since 2006.

Players of Chelsea and Bohemians fight for the ball during a pre-season friendly.

Dublin, Jul 11 (Agencies): Frank Lampard’s tenure as Chelsea boss started with a friendly draw on Wednesday, with Michy Batshuayi scoring for the Blues before a late leveller from Irish side Bohemians saw the London club held to a 1-1 stalemate. Lampard picked a side headlined by Batshuayi and Pedro for the friendly which marked the start of his reign as Chelsea boss, and it was Belgium international Batshuayi who kicked things off by opening the scoring just eight minutes in. Left-back Kenedy - back from a loan spell at Newcastle - laid on

the opener, driving in from the left side and firing a shot that was blocked into the path of Batshuayi. The 25year-old did well to hold off a defender and fire home, giving Lampard’s side an early lead. But there was little more to come from the Blues, who struggled to break down an opponent in mid-season form and playing with a number of firstteamers in the starting side. Lampard r ung the changes at half-time, with the like of Danny Drinkwater, Cesar Azpilicueta and Willy Caballero, all starters on the day, replaced

in favour of a group that included Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kurt Zouma, Lucas Piazon and Davide Zappacosta. The changes would have little impact on the match, with Bohemians also shuffling the pack throughout the second half as both sides struggled to create much in the way or real goalscoring chances. Chelsea looked a good bet to walk away with a slender victory, but a late Eric Molloy strike, aided by some sloppy work at the back from the Blues, was enough for the home side to pull level and hold on for a 1-1 draw on the night.

first class cricket if I’m not wrong, so the talent has obviously always been there.” Kohli rated Jadeja’ rear-guard knock as one of the best he has ever seen of the left-hander, which raised visions of an improbable win for India. “And in my watching Jadeja for 10 years, me playing with him as well, this is probably his top quality, like best knock according to me because the kind of pressure, the stage we are at, almost out of the game and then he produces that. So he was very motivated,” he said. “Yes, at that stage, we all felt like in the changing room the game can be closed out, it can be done, but then again he played so well and then a mistake can happen at any stage — I don’t think it was even a mistake, it was lack of execution which in one-day cricket you have to take a risk here and there,” he said.

game and whoever does that they get the result, as you saw today.” Kohli was effusive in his praise for Ravindra Jadeja (77 off 59 balls), who, in the company of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (50), stitched 116 runs for the seventh wicket to keep India in the hunt. Jadeja’s knock came after his tiff with former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, who had called the all-rounder a “bits and pieces player”. “I don’t think we, any of us had to say anything to Jadeja after what happened over the last one week. He was quite ready to just get on to the park, to be honest (smiling),” said the India skipper. “And you saw the passion with which he played and we have seen it in Test cricket a few times, he’s played knock under tremendous pressure and he’s got three triple hundreds in


Manchester, Jul 11 (PTI): Favourites going into the semifinals, one bad day in office ruined India’s World Cup hopes, and Virat Kohli suggested the ICC to consider introducing IPLstyle playoffs in the knockout stages in future to ensure a level-playing field. By his own admission, India lost the match in the first 45 minutes of their chase of 240, shattering a billion hopes days after the team finished on top of the league stage. Asked whether IPLstyle playoffs should be an option in future, Kohli said, “Who knows in future. Maybe. If topping the table means anything. I think these things can come into consideration, looking at the magnitude of this tournament.” “That is a really valid point. You never know when that is going to be implemented.” The Indian skipper, however, said the

England through to ICC WC final

Birmingham, Jul 11 (Agencies): England defeated defending champions Australia to storm into the final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup. England will face New Zealand at Lord’s on July 14 in a face-off not many expected before the start of the tournament. England are now in their 4th World Cup final while New Zealand reached their second successive final in a World Cup. In 2015, New Zealand had lost to Australia in a one-sided title clash. England had entered World Cup finals in 1975, 1987 and 1992 before

2019. 5-time world champions Australia were bowled out for 223 after Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid took 3 wickets each for England. Jofra Archer, playing his maiden World Cup and the star of England’s bowling attack, picked 3 wickets. Chasing a modest total at Edgbaston, England never looked like going wrong. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow added 124 for the first wicket before Joe Root and Eoin Morgan steered the hosts home. Mitchell Starc, meanwhile broke an all-time

record when he went past Glenn McGrath for the most wickets in a single edition of the World Cup. Jason Roy led the charge for England with a 65-ball 85 while Bairstow, Root and Morgan ensured Australia never had a foot in the door. Earlier in the day, Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bat. But Jofra Archer drew first blood for Englandf in the 2nd over when he removed Finch for a duck. David Warner finished with 647 runs in the World Cup, 1 short of the tournament’s highest run-scorer

so far - Rohit Sharma. But in the semi-final, Warner scored only 9 before he fell to Chris Woakes in the 3rd over. Woakes inflicted more damage on Australia when he dismissed Peter Handscomb who had come in as repalcement for the injured Usman Khawaja. However, Australia showed some fight with Steve Smith leading the charge. He joined forces with Alex Carey who braved a hit on the jaw to add 103 for the 4th wicket. Leg-spinner Adil Rashid dismissed Carey and Marcus Stoinis in the 28th over and that signalled the end of Australia’s challenge with the bat. Mitchell Starc scored an impressive 29 and was involved in a crucial stand with Smith but both men fell off successive deliveries. Steve Smith was run out for 85 while Starc fell to Woakes in the 48th over. 20 years ago, Australia had pulled off a stunning tie against South Africa in the semi-final. This time, there would be no such miracle as England raced away to a sensational victory. Brief Scores Australia: 223 all out (Smith 85; Woakes 3/20, Rashid 3/54) England: 226/2 (Jason Roy 85, Joe Root 49 n.o, Eoin Morgan 45 n.o)

Youth Olympics gold medallist Jeremy Lalrinnunga smashed three records in a power-packed performance but failed to register a clean and jerk lift on day three at the Commonwealth Championships here Thursday. In a remarkable performance, the 16-year-old Jeremy, competing in the 67 kg category, obliterated the Youth World, Asian and Commonwealth records in the snatch category with a lift of 136kgs. The earlier Youth World and Asian records were also in his name when he had lifted 134kgs at the Asian Championship in Ningbo, China in April. However, the Mizoram weightlifter missed out on a clean and jerk lift and thus could register a total lift score at the gold level Olympic qualifying event, the points from which will be counted when the final rankings for Tokyo 2020 cut are done. Other Indian lifters continued impressive show by winning six medals, including four golds, two silvers and a bronze. Achinta Sheuli lifted a total of 305kgs (136kg+169kg) to win the senior and junior men’’s 73kg gold. In the women’’s 76kg category, Manpreet Kaur lifted 207kg (91kg+116kg) to clinch the yellow metal.

Federer, Nadal set up blockbuster semifinal

Swiss legend Roger Federer rallied from a set down to defeat Kei Nishikori 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 and set up a showdown in the Wimbledon semifinals against archrival Rafael Nadal, a contest that will be their first at the Cathedral of Tennis since the epic 2008 men’s singles final.

6-2, reports Efe news. With his 100th match victory at the Wimbledon, the most he has recorded at any of the four Grand Slam tournaments, 37-year-old Federer set up the dream contest once more against Nadal that fans have been waiting for ever since the draw was unveiled.
