First session of 17th Parl session begins Forget numbers, be active in House, PM tells opposition

NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (AGENCIES): The maiden session of the 17th Lok Sabha commenced Monday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and Congress president Rahul Gandhi among the 320 of the 542 MPs taking oath during the first day of the two-day long swearing-in ceremony marked by some controversy, slip-ups and slogan shouting. Linguistic diversity was in full play with the oath being taken in different languages as several newlyelected members sported colourful attire, traditional shawls and headgears while a section wore a saffron look. As the Leader of the House, Modi was the first to take oath as member of the lower house, nearly four weeks after leading BJP to a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha polls. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister and BJP president Amit Shah, Transport and Highways minister Nitin Gadkari were among the prominent members who took oath. The oath was adminis-

tered by seven-term BJP MP Virendra Kumar shortly after he was sworn in by President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Kumar will also oversee the election of the Lok Sabha speaker on Wednesday. When Modi’s name was called out by the Secretary General for taking oath, members from the ruling NDA thumped the desk greeting the prime minister with slogans such as “ModiModi” and “Bharat Mata ki Jai”. Amid thumping of desks by Congress members, Rahul Gandhi took oath in English. He won the election from Wayanad in Kerala. Besides the union ministers who were elected to Lok Sabha, members from 23 states and union territories took oath. In all, 320 MPs took oath,

according to a Lok Sabha bulletin. The remaining 222 members will take oath on Tuesday. Lone Lok Sabha MP from Nagaland Tokheho Yepthomi also took oath. “I took oath as Member of Parliament for my second term. I thank the people of Nagaland and Almighty God for this blessing,” Tokheho said in a tweet. In the Monsoon session, a full-fledged Union Budget will be presented on July 5. The session concludes on July 26. The Lok Sabha at present has 542 elected members. Elections to Vellore seat in Tamil Nadu was cancelled as Election Commission felt excessive money power was being used to lure voters in that constituency. A fresh date is yet to be announced.

Stressing on the importance of an active opposition in democracy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday told them not to bother about their numbers and instead actively take part in the Lok Sabha’s proceedings. Before taking oath as a member on the first day of the 17th Lok Sabha, Modi said the role of an “opposition and an active opposition is important in a parliamentary democracy”. “The opposition need not bother about their numbers. I hope they speak actively and participate in house proceedings,” Modi told reporters in Parliament complex. Modi also urged MPs to work for the country in an impartial way and address issues related to larger interests of the country. “When we come to Parliament, we should forget ‘paksh’ (allies) and ‘vipaksh’ (opposition). We should think about issues with a ‘nishpaksh (unbiased) spirit’ and work in

the larger interests of the nation.” The spirit of impartiality was important and his government would try to preserve the dignity of Parliament in the next five years, he added. And repeating his appeal of Sunday, the Prime Minister urged MPs to let Parliament work smoothly so that the aspirations of the people were fulfilled. Noting that Monday marks the start of the first Parliament session after the Lok Sabha elections, the Prime Minister welcomed all new MPs and said: “With them comes new hopes, new aspirations and new determination to serve.” Requesting all parties to support the mandate given by the people, Modi said: “After several decades a government has won an absolute majority for a second term. People have given us the chance to serve the country again. I request all the parties to support the decisions that are in favour of people.”

Hope trend of using Parliament as ‘rubber stamp’ is reversed: Cong

Heavy rains likely today

NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (PTI): Alleging that the Modi gover nment used Parliament as a “rubber stamp” during its previous tenure, the Congress Monday hoped that this trend is reversed and key bills are not pushed without legislative scrutiny using “brute majority”. The Congress’ assertion came in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks ahead of the Monsoon Session that the opposition need not “bother about their numbers” as their every word is “valuable” to the government. “Legislation through ordinance is a very unhealthy practice in a democracy. It should only be used in extreme cases where there is an emergency requirement otherwise the due processes of lawmaking must to be followed by the government (Cont’d on p-7) in office,” senior Congress

leader Anand Sharma said. “We will now wait for the Prime Minister’s assurance in this regard and whether the practice that was followed in the last five years is reversed, because in the last five years what we have seen is disrespect to Parliament, where the bills were brought by the government and because of its brute majority in the Lok Sabha, Parliament was treated as a rubber stamp,” he said. Most of the bills were not sent to the standing committee for legislative scrutiny which is important for any law to be made, Sharma said. The Congress hopes that now this practice will be honoured and dependence of ordinance and pushing through the bills without scrutiny will not be repeated by the government, he said.

Manipur body warns of stir if CAB reintroduced in Parl 8 held for hijacking IMPHAL, JUN 17 (AGENCIES): Concerned about the possible reintroduction of contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill during the monsoon session of 17th Lok Sabha, Manipur People Against Citizenship Amendment Bill (MANPAC) reaffirmed its stand to put up resistance collectively with other North Eastern states if the Bill is legislated. MANPAC also issued a warning to launch various forms of intense agitations if the Bill is reintroduced in the Parliament. MANPAC is an umbrella body of several civil bodies operating in Manipur, who spearheaded the protest against the passing of citizenship Bill last year. Yumnamcha Dilipkumar, convenor MANPAC, said they will never allow the contentious bill to be passed without the consent of people. MANPAC never believed what the BJP promised in its manifesto that the Bill will not affect the unique linguistic, cultural and social values of the North Eastern people, he added. Although the BJP won the 17th Lok Sabha election with thumping victory in some of the states with Citizen Amendment Bill as one of its main poll agenda,

venor and MANPAC co-convenor, intimated that NEFIP along with its constituent organisations has reiterated the resolution to determine their own future if the controversial bill is legislated.

Nevertheless, the northeast as a whole is also prepared to carry out a mass resistance movement against such racist policies, he cautioned.

D I M A PUR , J UN 1 7 (NPN): Nagaland governor, P.B. Acharya has released the book titled “Economic History of the Miris” (Mishings) on Sunday in the GU-IST Hall of Gauhati University. According to PRO to Governor, the book authored by Peter Pegu, is the result of an in-depth study of the various stages of economic life of the Mishing tribe over the last 3000 years. Addressing the gathering, Acharya stressed upon the need of social connectivity in any intellectual work. He appealed to the authors and researchers to make meaningful contributions to the national character building through their intellectual works.

Highlighting the significance of “Economic Histor y of the Miris”, Acharya stressed on the quality content of the book, rather than spelling or name of the tribe. On the occasion, Prof. Mridul Hazarika, Vice Chancellor of Gauhati University, expressed his satisfaction on the book being released at Gauhati University that conducts a number of academic activities on the language and culture of various ethnics groups of North-Eastern region including the Mishings.

Arms recovered near rhino sanctuary in Assam

Will ensure security of Sikhs living in Shillong, says Conrad

Morigaon, Jun 17 (PTI): Arms and ammunition have been recovered from the vicinity of Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary at Morigaon district of Assam, a police officer said. Acting on a tip-off, a joint team of police officers and Forest Protection Force personnel launched an operation in and around the rhino habitat Sunday and recovered two rifles, one DBBL gun and several rounds of ammunition, he said. While a 3.3 rifle and 10 bullets, along with horns of wild deer, were recovered from the houses of two “dreaded” poachers at Chidaguri village in the district, another rifle and one DBBL gun were retrieved from Nekerahabi area near the sanctuary, the officer said. None of the poachers were, however, arrested as they fled the area during the operation. The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, 30 km east of Guwahati, has the highest concentration of onehorned rhino population in the world.




and Mahendraganj in the East with Kolkata via Bangladesh. “There is a location in West Bengal, Hilly and Mahendraganj in Meghalaya which is only 100km apart. This is the closest destinations apart (via Bangladesh),” Conrad said, elaborating that this will be the second lifeline for the country if anything happens (at all) to the East - West corridor that goes via the 8km area in West Bengal often referred to as the ‘chicken neck’. He also proposed an 8-lane highway from Guwahati to Chittagong port in Bangladesh via Dawki in Meghalaya cutting short the distance to the nearest port by over 400km. “Presently, we go all the way to Kolkata port which is 1,100km away from Guwahati. If both governments (India and Bangladesh) agree on making an 8-lane highway that would connect Guwahati - Shillong - Dawki - Chittagong port, our exports will go up. More exports will take place with the rest of the world and the cost of export would go down,” he said.

Moily seeks referendum on use of EVM in polls

M Veerappa Moily (File)

NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (PTI): Asserting that there are “serious doubts” over EVM, senior Congress leader M Veerappa Moily has sought a referendum on whether it should be used in the electoral process or ballot papers be brought back. He also emphasised that such a referendum should be conducted on ballot papers and not on electronic voting machines (EVMs) over which he claimed there was a trust deficit. “Everybody is suspecting EVM. This is a very serious matter and there is serious doubt on EVM. I think many countries like the US after having used EVM have gone back to manual voting,” Moily told PTI in an interview. He asserted that when serious doubts have arisen, the Election Commission (EC) and the government should act and go back to the ballot paper. “There are serious doubts and EVM machines will have to be given up to

return to the ballot. I think on this question of electoral process itself, even if it is necessary to take referendum from the people, I think the government should do that kind of a referendum,” Moily said. “But again, the referendum not on machines, but on ballot paper. Let them conduct, we will know the truth,” the former Union minister said. If it is in favour of the NDA, it is fine, but at least the doubt will be clear, Moily said. “Referendum (is needed) because of serious doubts cast upon the electoral system and machines, it has to be done,” the former Karnataka chief minister said. Moily alleged that the EC’s behaviour itself has become suspicious as it “did not do anything” to clear the doubts raised over the electoral process. Asked why the Congress was not raising the issue of alleged EVM fraud strongly, he said the party had taken the matter to the EC even during elections,

but it wants that the issue should not be seen as an alibi for defeat. “It is not an alibi, it is a serious question. When I was the Law Minister, at that time also there was some doubt and we appointed a committee. But, now there is serious doubt and machines will have to be given up in favour of ballot,” the 79-year-old leader said. Moily’s remarks come days after UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, apparently hinting at EVMs, claimed “many types of doubts” have emerged in the past few years over the country’s electoral processes. “There is a saying that there is no smoke without fire,” she said in Raebareli last Wednesday. Opposition parties, including the Congress, have alleged that EVMs can be tampered with, giving the ruling BJP the advantage in an election. The BJP has hit out at the Congress for raising doubts over the use of EVM in the Lok Sabha polls with Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi Friday saying the grand old party is showing arrogance instead of introspecting its defeat in the elections. Moily also expressed confidence that the Congress can play the role of a dynamic opposition despite its small numbers in the Lok Sabha. “Numbers are not important. The passion with which we take up the cause of the party is important,” he said.

NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (PTI): The operation to retrieve bodies of the 13 air warriors onboard the ill-fated AN-32 aircraft that crashed in Arunachal Pradesh remained suspended for the third consecutive day due to bad weather, Air Force officials said Monday.

Pragya Thakur’s modifications in oath trigger opposition uproar NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (AGENCIES): BJP leader Pragya Thakur sparked off a new controversy today by attaching the name of her spiritual guru to hers while taking oath as a member of the 17th Lok Sabha.

Modi’s anti-terror plea


rime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposal to hold nations exporting or supporting terrorism accountable merits serious attention and consequent action. Modi’s plea made at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit at Kyrgyzstan, a former USSR republic, has been the cry of nations whose citizens have been victimised by terrorist acts. The same issue- “State Sponsors of Terrorism”- is a designation applied by the United States Department of State to countries which it alleges have “repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism”. Inclusion on the list imposes strict unilateral sanctions. The countries currently on the list are Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. There are also ongoing proposals to add Bolivia and Venezuela to the list.Modi’s plea resonates with most countries as India has been the target of Pakistani-sponsored terrorism for decades under the guise of liberation of Kashmir. Not only India but even countries such as- Afghanistan, Iran and other nations, including the United States and the United Kingdom, have accused Pakistan of involvement in terrorist activities in the region and beyond. International pressure for Pakistan to take concrete action against the 22 United Nations-designated terrorist entities it hosts has not yielded the desired result. Pakistan’s position as a mecca of terrorism is now raising concerns among even its main patrons—China and Saudi Arabia. Pakistan’s all-powerful military establishment is loath to sever its cosy alliances with terrorist groups. The Pakistan army especially the ISI would prefer to continue nurturing armed jihadists as a force multiplier in its low-intensity asymmetric wars against India and neighbouring countries. Pakistan has been responsible for acts of terrorism in Kashmir besides the July 2006 Mumbai train bombings, the 2001 Indian Parliament attack, the 2006 Varanasi bombings, the August 2007 Hyderabad bombings, the November 2008 Mumbai attacks and the February 2019 Pulwama attack. The proposal to hold such nations that sponsor terrorism accountable is a valid one which should be acted upon. Unless the international community recognises the grave threat posed on freedom by terrorism, a day may come when such elements take over many governments. Pakistan and countries that sponsor terror should not be allowed to sit alongside civilised nations just because they are political entities. Pakistan has been rejecting all charges of being an abettor and sponsor of terror against India despite clinching evidence like the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks by Lashkar-e-Taiba from Pakistan. The entire plot was disclosed by captured terrorist Ajmal Kasab to the Indian investigating agencies. Despite such evidence, Pakistan has stuck to the stand that India has yet to provide “credible evidence”. Even Europe itself has witnessed a spate of terrorist attacks on innocent and helpless civilians. A majority of terror attacks in Europe since 2014 have been carried out by Islamic terrorists especially by the ISIS, a radical and cold blooded organisation.Several nations continue to adopt a soft stand against terrorists in their own soil.Even Pakistan which has been nurturing the terrorist Frankenstein has also witnessed a spate of attacks but the army and ISI are not keen to crack down against the terror groups. Such nations that continue to use terrorism to bring down constitutionally and legally instituted governments should be named and shamed. The entire free world must act without further delay against such nations unless they renounce all forms of terror.

DailyDevotion Beware of Criticizing Others

Judge not, that you be not judged. —Matthew 7:1 Jesus’ instructions with regard to judging others is very simply put; He says, “Don’t.” The average Christian is the most piercingly critical individual known. Criticism is one of the ordinary activities of people, but in the spiritual realm nothing is accomplished by it. The effect of criticism is the dividing up of the strengths of the one being criticized. The Holy Spirit is the only one in the proper position to criticize, and He alone is able to show what is wrong without hurting and wounding. It is impossible to enter into fellowship with God when you are in a critical mood. Criticism serves to make you harsh, vindictive, and cruel, and leaves you with the soothing and flattering idea that you are somehow superior to others. Jesus says that as His disciple you should cultivate a temperament that is never critical. This will not happen quickly but must be developed over a span of time. You must constantly beware of anything that causes you to think of yourself as a superior person. There is no escaping the penetrating search of my life by Jesus. If I see the little speck in your eye, it means that I have a plank of timber in my own (see Matthew 7:3-5). Every wrong thing that I see in you, God finds in me. Every time I judge, I condemn myself (see Romans 2:17-24). Stop having a measuring stick for other people. There is always at least one more fact, which we know nothing about, in every person’s situation. The first thing God does is to give us a thorough spiritual cleaning. After that, there is no possibility of pride remaining in us. I have never met a person I could despair of, or lose all hope for, after discerning what lies in me apart from the grace of God.


Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

An Appraisal on the LAN Agreement

ue to political preferences, the Indo-Naga political issue has gone through many twists and turns. One of the drawbacks was the division among the Naga Political Groups (NPGs). Over the years this division resulted in fratricidal killings. Today, with great effort the FNR (Forum for Naga Reconciliation) has actively facilitated and convened several peacetalks leading to signing of significant agreements and passing resolutions among the warring NPGs. With almost all the civil societies, churches and NGOs supporting the initiative of FNR in bringing the warring factions together, the FNR has been spearheading peace talks among the NPGs, making significant progress. The Lenten Agreement Nagaland (LAN) is an example of FNR’s initiative and achievement to help the NPGs translate the Covenant of Reconciliation (CoR). In this article, I will give an appraisal on the LAN agreement as FNR commemorates the 10thAnniversary of the signing of CoR. The Lenten Agreement Naga-land reads: “Having reconciled on the basis of the historical and political rights of the Nagas, we recognize that all Nagas must unite in the common purpose towards achieving our Naga political aspirations. In the Naga reconciliation process, we have committed to move forward together by condemning the past historical mistakes committed at various stages of our history. We also take inspiration in the positive political steps that have sustained and strengthened the Naga movement. Therefore, “having reconciled in the spirit of forgiveness and

mutual respect,” we are committed to overcoming our mistakes, while also recognizing and uplifting our achievements and contributions made at various stages of our political history, a stepping stone towards the common Naga future. As agreed in the “Naga Concordant,” we, in principle agree to the formation of Naga National Government. While the commitment is a process, until such time, we resolve to work together in the common purpose of achieving Naga political aspirations. This task should begin at the earliest and be completed without delay. In this, we request the FNR to work out the modalities to expedite the process. While this task is being carried out, we call for the maintenance of status quo, by vigilantly refraining from any unwarranted activities by the Nagas. Furthermore, in the spirit of Naga Unity, through reconciliation and peace, we remain open to other Naga groups who are committed to the Naga Reconciliation and agree to abide and uphold its aim and purposes.” First, the coming together of the NPGs for a political solution under the aegis, “A Journey of Common Hope” itself is a tremendous landmark. Rightly, the LAN is the outcome of several hours of dialogue among the warring NPGs with the intent to reconcile their differences and find a common hope to go forward. LAN, having recognized the Naga historical and political rights, has valued the relational and dialogical aspect of the Naga history. Second, LAN has considered the Naga political aspiration as a common

story and struggle for all the NPGs. The aspiration has become a discourse for the Naga people, while the struggle of the Naga political issue has been both idealized and idolized in different nationalistic groups. The attempt to emphasize the bigger Naga story, over and above the fragmented pieces, is noteworthy. Though the discourse has been accepted by one and all, the struggle for nationalism has been differentiated by ideologies that were against the Christian moral ethics. And, for various reasons, in the pretext of fighting for the political rights of the Nagas, several groups have justified and served capital punishments, heavily taxed citizens, and have christened their political stand through the slogan “Nagaland for Christ.” Walking under such a “Christian” banner, they have extorted money from the government employees, business community and common people. Although the connotation ‘political aspiration’ has various implications, the FNR has recognized the basic homework that every peace facilitating body needs to do. And as such, they have emphasised their focus upon the need for peace, the settlement for fair and just political right, the need to admit the past mistakes and the openness to embrace a shared future together. This they have idealized it in the mutual interest of the Naga people who desire justice, peace and reconciliation in the region. Third, the first paragraph of the agreement reads, “willing to move forward by condemning the past historical mistakes committed at various stages of our history.” The FNR has so far organized and

convened many peace talks in and out of the country for the NPGs to come together. The phrase “Condemning the past” in LAN is a way of externalizing the problem. Externalizing creates distance, objectivity and a neutral space in which people can notice the effects of the conflict itself, rather than its causes, and assess whether or not they like those effects. It assists people to step out of positions of blame or shame and enables them to save face by ascribing problems to the conflict itself, rather than to themselves or to the other party. Therefore, externalizing language helps people separate from the conflict story and makes room for alternative stories to emerge. This, the FNR has done professionally in a separate space where the warring groups could safely admit their mistakes by condemning the past and not just the individual or a particular group. Yet, these are some signs of maturity and professionalism displayed by FNR in brokering peace today. We must all understand that, these preliminary steps are crucial for negotiating their position and interest later when they are called to come together. Finally, the phrase “having reconciled in the spirit of forgiveness and mutual respect” in the LAN is a call for positioning – positioning of the NPGs in relational terms. It also signifies their positioning for the interests of each other and for the people. This also calls for taking responsibility in portraying self in public and in private, in accord with the CoR. Another significant outcome of the LAN is found in the statement’s last paragraph, “Further-

more, in the spirit of Naga Unity, through reconciliation and peace, we remain open to other Naga groups who are committed to the Naga Reconciliation and agree, to abide and uphold its aim and purposes.” The process of constructing an alternative story is created here by the NPGs in accord with the public and stakeholders. The phrase “we resolve to work together in the common purpose of achieving Naga political aspirations” is an alternative story. Prior to their engagement in the LAN they have their own individual and party agendas, ideologies and perspective about the Naga political solution. But as they come together under the flagship of FNR and especially the LAN, one can see their commitment to a shared purpose. In my observation, the FNR made a significant progress in brokering peace by establishing relationships within conflicting parties, building rapport and listening to their stories. They have made search for meaning as a collaborative journey, helping the political NPGs to externalize the problem and not focusing the spotlight on the groups or their ideologies. Thus, the coauthoring of the alternative Naga story and building of their relationship basing on the new narrative “A Journey of Common Hope” has emerged. It appears that, ever since the FNR initiated the peace talks, there has been increased understanding, respect and cooperation among the NPGs. This commonness and understanding has been displayed by playing football, doing Bible studies and showing willingness to stay under the same roof and travel on the same airplane for peace

talks. Another significant outcome is the acceptance of the journey of common hope as the political desire for the Naga people by the warring factions which is an outstanding achievement. The LAN agreement has exposed the mistakes that occurred in the past and has condemned them. Having condemned the past, they also decided to forgive and move on to build healthier and stronger relationship for the common future of the Nagas. Thus, the LAN agreement created a new story for the NPGs to pursue and complete that story. For too long misgivings, tribalism and factionalism has become the dominant story that has prevailed in all spheres of the life of the Nagas. But now, the LAN has weaved a new story, a story that gives us a sense of continuity in life, a story inclusive of all Nagas and where belongingness and identity is secured. Therefore, the ball is on the court of the public today Among the many questions are: How do we take part as individuals, civil bodies, churches to complete the story? Do we still wait for more evidence for them to unite, study their intentions of nationalism? Or, should we for once put away our prejudices, differences, hunches that are disintegrating our solidarity and give FNR a chance to help us re-write our history for the sake of a common Naga future?

Decade since a ‘Milestone’ – The Climb Uphill Nagaland speaks of its journey since the Covenant of Reconciliation (June 13, 2009)

(From previous issue) Chishi adds the more difficult, “grey areas,” to her analysis. National workers who run businesses, for instance, have to inadvertently pay taxes to the Government of India; their children have to study in schools that begin each day with the Indian national anthem; like all Indian citizens, they need Aadhaar cards and voter identity cards. Disparate threads twine through one another, lending unintended colour and design to the Naga fabric. “The State Government’s role became larger in the lives of the Nagas and civil society was co-opted by the State in the last 15 years,” proposes an observer from Eastern Nagaland who wished to remain anonymous. The implication is of the osmosis that gripped the ‘overground’ and ‘underground’ governments. “Taxation became unabated. Bureaucrats were happy to blame national workers for corruption. In turn, national workers made friends with bureaucrats and demanded disproportionate benefits. Politicians and national workers cooperated to win elections. It became a nexus of immorality that engulfed us all.” In a public statement in September 2017, the FNR acknowledged as much, and went a step further. “There is alarming increase of social ills and the nexus between Naga National Groups and vested individuals and parties are strengthening the culture of impunity.” In such a space, Naga civil society fractured. Several movements against corruption and for civil rights emerged in Nagaland State, but few sustained. “Peoples’ movements cannot survive in a space of negative peace,” reminds Fr. Anto. While the effects of this began to widen the gulf of wealth in Naga society, “the Reader’s note: Articles

poor remained choiceless,” feels Merina Chishi. “What option does a poor widow who lives hand-to-mouth have? For the educated and elite, reconciliation is a liberating concept but that widow has to silently move on with her struggles intact.” Hopes for the Future: Was the Naga Reconciliation Process that unfurled after the signing of the CoR conceptually heavy? Did it fall prey to misconceptions in the minds of the public? Could the Process have been designed otherwise? While acknowledging that the resultant situation was beyond the FNR’s control, 90% of the commentators on this subject chose ‘yes’ to all of the above. One of the biggest challenges towards taking the Process forward remained the idea in the peoples’ minds and imagination that the FNR “sided with” one of the Naga political groups. On the other hand, this very political group was miffed that FNR had “equalized” all groups irrespective of their expertise in terms of political acumen, networks, firepower or discipline. For the public, this “equalization” and the “neutral” opento-all approach of the FNR was what gained the people’s trust. But, at the time, the “solutioncentric political language” also made it seem like FNR publicly supported the group, the only one to be in talks with the Government of India then. The quagmire this led the FNR to may have had an unpleasant effect, but fortunately not all was lost. “The NNPGs coming together for the peace talks in this manner would not have been possible today if not for the FNR’s work in the yesteryears,” affirms Alemtemshi Jamir. The scope of FNR’s work also remains large. Reconciliation in the Naga context, felt

some commentators, is not just about groups coming together. The issues that led to the groups ‘factionalizing’ were political, social, cultural and economic. “Ingrained in the factional violence was the feeling of superiority of one community/tribe over the other. Discrimination and prejudice among communities/tribes led to unfair treatment and bred contempt leading to factionalism. This was a serious issue for the Eastern Nagas. If there was a third force operating at all, we allowed the third force to exploit us,” maintains the observer from Eastern Nagaland. Non-Naga communities feel the pinch of this “prejudice” in daily life. They provide a reflection perhaps useful for the Naga Reconciliation Process—“we are ready to reconcile if we are recognized as equals,” says the non-Naga social worker. “If you just make a place in your hearts for us, we can give back a lot more,” offers the non-Naga businessperson. To do this, both Toshi Wungtung and Geoffrey Yaden – in separate interviews – say that “Naga politics is in need of reformation and transformation.” Both prefer that the church be central to the process. “If we allow ourselves to be unjust to others today, we will easily do it to our own tomorrow,” cites Yaden, calling for democratizing the social space for all to “develop and grow.” These comments point to hopes for the future, and the extent to which “forgiveness and healing” is required in the society if “true reconciliation” is to take shape. In Fr. Anto’s opinion, “After washing each others’ feet and playing football, there needed to be celebration, then dialogue towards change of perspective and attitude, ultimately leading to a solution to the problem faced.

But we didn’t see the process of forgiveness leading to healing and then reconciliation.” A scholar of conflict transformation, Fr. Anto suggests, “A dialogue forum for reconciliation should be established at the State, District and Sub-division levels across the Naga areas. Reconciliation should be taught in schools, preached in churches and witnessed in person. Newspapers should constantly carry the message of reconciliation. For the next 10 years, this message should percolate to the

grassroots and Naga society should support the individuals and their families that take up this task full time.” These suggestions are rooted in a new line of thought—that Reconciliation be the principle and mandate based on which Nagas Beyond Borders rediscover their peoplehood, self-fulfilling the aspiration for nationhood.

Cleanliness is what matters!


As a teacher and a leader of the society, I would like to emphasise a few points on “cleanliness”. Besides Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan Mission, there has been numerous cleanliness campaigns initiated by schools, colleges, communities, administration and Eco Squads. However, the result has not been quite impressive despite of their tremendous efforts. But why are our towns and cities not clean? Who are responsible for this? One of the first sign of a wellmanaged place - whether it is a restaurant, hotel, airport, office or train station - is its level of cleanliness. To make our town and cities clean, to its full potential, we individuals are responsible and accountable to it. As schools and colleges students who pick up dirt along the road sides, shops areas etc as a part of cleanliness campaign, directly or indirectly educating the people and conveying the messages what cleanliness is about? However, after few hours or the next day, the same cycle or story continues. This is a matter of great concern for all of us. To make our place neat and clean, we all need to take steps to ensure that we minimise filth in the first place, rather than hoping someone to pick it up and clean it. Hence, including me, everyone should be educated about cleanliness and cultivate the culture of practising it, and passing such legacy to the future generations instead of being ignorant and expecting someone to do it. Cleanliness begins at everyone’s own house and then spread the wings to become the real participant in this crusade against dirt and squalor in true spirit. Therefore, a step forward from the end of every person can be a giant step in fulfilling the mission of keeping our nation a neat and a healthy nation. Prakash Chetri, Chümoukedima Town

HM seeks report on clash between driver, cops

NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (PTI): The Home Ministry Monday sought a report from the Delhi Police after a video surfaced online showing a violent clash between a tempo driver and a few policemen in northwest Delhi, a senior official said. Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said he has spoken to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and asked him to take immediate action. “BJP delegation led by Shri @rpsinghkhalsa ji called on me today regarding the incident under Mukherjee Nagar Police Station in New Delhi, I spoke to CP Delhi, instructed for immediate action and to submit a detailed report,” Reddy tweeted. According to a senior police officer, an accident between a Gramin Sewa Tempo and a police vehicle occurred Sunday evening, leading to an argument between the driver and a policeman. The ar-

3 cops suspended for attacking driver Demonstrations continued on Monday outside a Delhi police station where the driver of a mini taxi and his son were assaulted a day earlier, leading to a political storm and the suspension of three policemen. Scores of sloganshouting protesters massed outside the Mukherjee Nagar police station near

Delhi University and tried to break into the complex, only to be pushed back by a strong contingent of security personnel. Two Assistant SubInspectors and a constable have been suspended for unprofessional conduct over the way they handled the situation on Sunday after a ‘Gramin Seva’ taxi brushed a police vehicle, triggering a chain of unpleasant events. Balwant Singh said a policeman hit him on the head with a pistol. “First they punched my face multiple times and later one of them started to hit me with his pistol’s butt on the head. I felt like I was a terrorist who was being interrogated,” Balwant Singh said as neighbours in Gandhi Vihar stood by in grim silence. Further action will be taken following the outcome of the police investigation, officer Arya said.

Oppn parties oppose ‘one nation, one poll’ NEW DELHI , JUN 17 (AGENCIES): Left parties have opposed the idea of ‘one nation, one election’ proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling it undemocratic and against the principle of federalism. The Left parties, Trinamool, RJD, TDP, AIMIM and AAP too are opposed to the concept of simultaneous elections to Lok Sabha and state Assemblies. Modi has called a meeting of the presidents of all political parties to discuss the idea on June 19. In his previous term too he had floated the idea though this is the first time he is holding a formal consultation with other parties. S. Ramachandran Pillai of the CPI(M) said that not only was the idea impractical but it also subverted the people’s mandate and democratic right. “If an elected state government loses power due to change in political equations then under ‘one election’ formula the same government will continue or President’s rule will be imposed. It is against the very value of federalism,” Pillai said. Pillai said, the forumla was also a way to impose the rule of the party that is ruling at the Centre. CPI leader D. Raja said that the suggestion was

ominous. “This suggestion is merely an extension of the syndrome the BJP wants to impose of one nation-one culture-one nation-one language,” he said. He said it was not only unrealistic but also unconstitutional. “We will have to get rid of the present Constitution. And if the argument for one election is to reduce the election expenditure, then why not push for state funding which also will provide a level playing field to all parties,” Raja added. DMK joins hands with AIADMK in opposing: ravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) joined hands with rival All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) in opposing the one nation one poll proposal of the Law Commission. DMK working president MK Stalin put forth a letter to the Law Commission firmly opposing the simultaneous polls on behalf of his party stating that it goes against the “basic tenets of our constitution”. MK Stalin also added that extensive research and study for the same was done by the Vajpayee government in 1999, but the concept of simultaneous polls was found not “feasible”. “We are against one nation one

poll as our party wants to uphold a federal structure and not give into someone’s radical ideas,” said A Saravanan, spokesperson of the DMK. On Saturday, Tamil Nadu AIADMK government also submitted a letter stating that they must continue their tenure which is till 2021. Cong ress in a fix: Congress appeared to be in a dilemma over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s strong pitch for ‘one nation, one poll’ and outreach to Parliamentarians for a brainstorming session about the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence. Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad skirted questions on whether the Congress would attend the meeting of presidents of political parties in Parliament convened by Modi on Wednesday to discuss electoral reforms, particularly ‘one nation, one poll’, a pet agenda of BJP. “We will discuss within the Parliamentary party and then decide,” senior Congress leader Kodikunnil Suresh. However, another Congress leader said that the Congress is opposed to the idea of ‘one nation, one poll’, contending that it went “against the basic structure of federalism”.

Kejriwal seeks action against cops Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday demanded that Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal take strict action against the police personnel who allegedly assaulted a driver in Delhi. Kejriwal, who met the family of the man, said the Delhi police’s “brutality” in Mukherjee Nagar area on Sunday was highly condemnable and unjustified. “I demand an impartial probe into the whole incident & strict action against the guilty. Protectors of citizens can’t be allowed to turn into uncontrolled violent mobsters,” the chief minister tweeted. Talking to reporters later, Kejriwal said: “I appeal to the home minister and the LG to take strict action against

LOU NH-29 informs members

DIMAPUR, JUN 17 (NPN): In view of its decision to file a case in the court, the Land Owners Union (LOU) NH-29 has informed to all its members, who were yet to submit documents of their land pattas, to do so at the earliest. In a press release, LOU, NH-29 joint secretary Mezhuvilie Usuo and information & publicity secretary Kewetso Kenye pointed out that the court would recognise only those landowners with documents of land patta (government Pattas or local pattas issued by chairman/GBs). The union has, therefore, directed all the responsible landowners to take note of its instruction to avoid future complication. It also reminded that the last date of registration has been fixed as June 30, 2019.

NEW DELHI, JUN 17 (PTI): A Trinamool Congress legislator and 15 councilors of the party in West Bengal joined the BJP here on Monday. Noapara MLA Sunil Singh, along with the 15 TMC councillors and another Congress councilor, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the presence of general secretary and West Bengal incharge Kailash Vijayvargiya, and senior leader Mukul Roy. Sunil Singh is a relative of MP Arjun Singh, who switched over from the TMC to the BJP just ahead of the recent Lok Sabha polls and won the Barrackpore seat. Roy, once the secondin-command in the TMC after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, said 10 legislators from various parties had joined the BJP so far. Leaders, including MLAs and MPs, from various parties in the state have been joining the saffron party for past several months.

while stressing that the safety of doctors was not debatable. “Doctors should not be beaten by anybody in the premises of the hospital or outside and there is no difference of opinion on this,” he said. Asked if any proposal on drafting a cental law in this regard can come up in this session of parliament, Vardhan said, “This is not something that can be made overnight. It will obviously require time to study. I have to get old records. This matter had come up in 2017 also

and deliberations had taken place.” “So, for me to say something that I can get something done within a few days will be a tall claim, but our intentions are right and our aim is that such incidents should never be repeated in this country.” Vardhan had on Saturday written to all chief ministers and had attached a copy of the IMA’s draft Act, the Protection of Medical Service Persons and Medical Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss of Property) Act, 2017. He also drew the attention of all states and Union Territories for strict action against any person who assaults doctors. The draft of The Protection of Medical Service Persons and Medical Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss of Property) Act, 2017, circulated to the states, includes clauses on penalty and recovery in case of loss/damage to property.

Traders attributed the decline in gold prices to fall in demand from local jewellers and a weak global trend. Sovereign gold, however, remained flat at Rs 26,800 per eight gram as compared with the previous close. Silver ready fell by Rs 10 to Rs 38,090 per kg, whereas, weekly-based delivery rose by Rs 81 to Rs 37,116 per kg.



New Delhi, Jun 17 (PTI): Gold prices Monday fell by Rs 100 to Rs 33,620 per 10 gram in the national capital due to subdued demand from local jewellers and a weak trend overseas, according to the All India Sarafa Association.

tory easing from the RBI, along with a recovery in portfolio inflows, should support a recovery in credit to the private sector and reverse the drag from the negative credit impulse,” Fitch said. By the end of 2019, Fitch expects the rupee to be around 70 to the US dollar and weaken further to 71 level by 2020. With regard to global growth, it said trade war is weighing on investment prospects and has sharply increased downside risks to world economic growth forecasts. “Even though our base case assumes that further US tariffs on China are avoided, our world growth forecast for 2020 has been lowered. Increased uncertainty about trade is already making firms more cautious on capex,” Fitch Chief Economist Brian Coulton said. It cut world growth forecast for 2020 to 2.7 per cent, from 2.8 per cent earlier. China’s growth is expected to come down to 6 per cent, from 6.1 per cent, while for United States Fitch expects growth would be lower at 1.8 per cent, as against 1.9 per cent estimated earlier. World economy is expected to grow at 2.8 per cent in 2019, down from 3.2 per cent in 2018, Fitch said.

expanding by 5.8 per cent, down from a cyclical high of 8.1 per cent in the March quarter of 2018. “This is the lowest growth outturn in five years. The slowdown over the past year has been driven by steadily cooling activity in the manufacturing sector and, to a lesser extent, agriculture. Weaker momentum has been mainly domestically driven, though export growth has also faltered more recently,” Fitch said. It said the Reserve Bank has cut interest rates by 0.25 per cent in its June meeting - the third cut so far this year- in the face of weak growth momentum and contained inflation. “We expect another 25 basis point cut later in 2019, which will push the policy repo rate down to 5.50 per cent. Monetary and regulatory easing from the RBI, along with a recovery in portfolio inflows, should support a recovery in credit to the private sector and reverse the drag from the negative credit impulse,” Fitch added. It said lower lending by non-bank financial companies has weighed on growth in infrastructure and consumption, even though banks have partially compensated by ramping up their lending to the private sector. “Monetary and regula-

The NSE gauge Nifty also slipped over 151 points to close below the 11,700mark. Besides, fresh geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and concerns over the advancement of monsoon also unnerved market participants. The Indian rupee Monday fell by another 11 paise to close at 69.91 to the the US currency, its third straight-session loss. The domestic currency has lost 57 paise in the last three sessions. The BSE gauge settled 491.28 points, or 1.25 per cent, lower at 38,960.79. The index hit an intra-day low of 38,911.49 and a high of 39,540.42. Similarly, the broader NSE Nifty cracked 151.15 points, or 1.28 per cent, to close at 11,672.15. During the day, the index touched a low of 11,657.75 and a high of 11,844.05. Over the past four sessions, the Sensex has lost 796.02 points or 2 per cent. Sectorally, BSE metal was the worst hit, losing over 3 per cent, while energy index fell over 2 per cent on Monday. Broader BSE midcap and smallcap indices followed benchmarks, dropping up to 1.35 per cent.

New Delhi, Jun 17 (PTI): Fitch Monday cut India’s growth forecast for the current fiscal for a second time in a row to 6.6 per cent as manufacturing and agriculture sectors showed signs of slowing down over the past year. The global rating agency had earlier in March lowered the growth estimate for 2019-20 to 6.8 per cent, from 7 per cent projected earlier, on weak momentum of the economy. The cut in growth forecast comes ahead of the presentation of the Union Budget on July 5. Indian economy grew at its slowest pace in five years at 6.8 per cent in 201819. In the January-March quarter, the growth slumped to a five-year low of 5.8 per cent. Following this India lost the fastest growing economy tag to China, which grew at 6.4 per cent in the same quarter. “We see growth for FY2019-2020 printing at 6.6 per cent, before stepping up to 7.1 per cent in FY 20202021 and 7.0 per cent in FY 2021-2022,” Fitch Ratings said in its latest Global Economic Outlook. RBI has projected a growth rate of 7 per cent for the current fiscal. India’s GDP growth declined for the fourth consecutive quarter in JanuaryMarch, with the economy

New Delhi, Jun 17 (PTI): Digital Communications Commission, the apex decision-making body of the telecom department, on Monday approved imposing penalty on Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea for not providing points of interconnection to Reliance Jio. However, before imposing the penalty, the Commission has decided to seek Trai’s views on revising Rs 3,050 crore penalty recommended by the sector regulator amid financial stress in the sector. While Digital Communications Commission (DCC) approved imposing penalty on the companies, it disagreed with a proposal of one of the secretaries to fine Reliance Jio as it “too failed to deliver quality service to customers”. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) in October 2016 recommended imposing total penalty of Rs 3,050 crore on Airtel, Vodafone Idea for allegedly denying interconnectivity to newcomer RJio. The penalty on Airtel and Vodafone works out to be about Rs 1,050 crore each. In case of Idea it comes to about Rs 950 crore. Since Vodafone and Idea have now merged their businesses, the new entity Vodafone Idea will have to bear the burden of both companies.

Tel Aviv, Jun 17 (IANS): Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has unveiled a new settlement -- Trump Heights -- in the occupied Golan Heights, named after the US President. “We’re going to establish a new community something that hasn’t happened in many years, in honour of President Donald Trump,” Haaretz newspaper quoted Netanyahu as saying on Sunday during a government meeting. Building work was yet to begin but a sign bearing Trump’s name and US and Israeli flags was unveiled, reports said. Critics slammed the move a publicity stunt with no legal authority. “This is a historic day,” Netanyahu said, hailing President Trump as “a friend of Israel”, the daily reported. According to him, naming of the establishment after Trump constituted a gesture of respect for the US President’s actions “for the good of the state of Israel in a wide variety of areas”, which included recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights -- a

move that was criticised by the international community. US Ambassador David Friedman, who attended the ceremony, called the settlement “well deserved, but much appreciated”. According to a government proposal, the establishment will be part of the Golan Regional Council and will be built in the extant Kela Alon community, in which dozens of families already live, Haaretz said. The plan would see the settlement established in what is now the Bruchim neighbourhood, in which a

few families live. Israel seized the Golan from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. In March, the US became the first country to recognise Israeli sovereignty over the area since Israel effectively annexed it in 1981. Trump later took to Twitter to thank Netanyahu and his government on the move, saying, “Thank you PM Netanyahu and the State of Israel for this great honour.” Trump also retweeted a tweet by the US Ambassador, who wrote about the

Johnson gets boost in race to become Britain’s new PM LO N D O N, J u n 1 7 (Agencies): Boris Johnson got a boost in his campaign to replace British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday when one of his former rivals and EU supporter Matt Hancock backed him saying he was almost certain to win the contest. According to Reuters, Johnson, a former London mayor and foreign minister, is way out in front in the race to become leader of the Conservative Party and despite so far deciding to steer clear of debates with his rivals, his popularity has yet to be dented. Most of the other five hopefuls concede that Johnson, whose career has been marked by gaffes and scandals, will almost definitely make the final two in the race, when mainly pro-Brexit Conservative Party members will cast the deciding votes. But the race is on to decide who will challenge him. Health Secre-

tary Hancock, who dropped out of the race on Friday after winning 20 votes in the first ballot of Conservative lawmakers, said Johnson was the best candidate to lead the party. “Boris has run a disciplined campaign and is almost certainly going to be our next prime minister,” Hancock said in an article in The Times newspaper, which tapped him as a strong contender to become finance minister. But parliament has indicated it will try to stop

a no-deal Brexit, which investors warn could roil markets and shock the world economy, while the EU has said it will not renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement that May agreed. According to economists polled by Reuters, the likelihood of a no-deal exit has jumped in the past month. Almost three years since Britain voted to leave the EU, the country, the parliament and both main parties are still deeply divided over Brexit. But all of the Conservative leadership contestants agree they must take Britain out of the bloc. Johnson won the support of 114 of 313 Conservative Party lawmakers in the first round of the leadership contest. The second round is on Tuesday with the result due around 1700 GMT. Any candidate with 32 votes or fewer is eliminated. If all candidates have more than 32 votes, the one with the fewest is eliminated.

ceremony on his Twitter handle. “A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honour to dedicate ‘Trump Heights’ -- first time Israel has dedicated a village in honour of a sitting President since Harry Truman (1949).

Xi to make maiden visit to N.Korea Beijing, Jun 17 (PTI): President Xi Jinping would make his maiden visit to Pyongyang this week - the first by a Chinese leader in 14 years - in a big boost to the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who is under heavy pressure from the US to give up nuclear weapons programme. Xi will visit Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) - the official name for North Korea - from June 20 to 21, at the invitation of Kim, the spokesperson for the International Department of the ruling Communist Party of China, Hu Zhaoming, announced here. His visit coincides with the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries. Xi’s visit, the first by a Chinese leader in 14 years to the internationally isolated country reeling under UN sanctions for pursing nuclear weapons programme, comes ahead of his proposed meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of G-20 summit scheduled to be held on June 28-29 in Tokyo.

China, India and Pak increasing nuke arsenals

The Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty turns 50 next year (Representational)

STOCKHOLM, Jun 17 (AFP): The overall number of nuclear warheads in the world has declined in the past year but nations are modernising their arsenals, a report published Monday said. At the start of 2019, the United States, Russia, Britain, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea had a total of some 13,865 nuclear weapons, according to estimates in a new report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). That represents a decrease of 600 nuclear weapons compared to the start of 2018. But at the same time all nuclear weapon-possessing countries are modernising

these arms - and China, India and Pakistan are also increasing the size of their arsenals. “The world is seeing fewer but newer weapons,” Shannon Kile, director of the SIPRI Nuclear Arms Control Programme and one of the report’s authors, told AFP. The drop in recent years can mainly be attributed to the US and Russia, whose combined arsenals still make up more than 90 per cent of the world’s nuclear weapons. This is in part due to the countries fulfilling their obligations under the New START treaty - which puts a cap on the number of deployed warheads and was

signed by the US and Russia in 2010 - as well as getting rid of obsolete warheads from the Cold War era. The START treaty is however due to expire in 2021, which Kile said was worrying since there are currently “no serious discussions underway about extending it”. Next year the treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) -considered the cornerstone of the world’s nuclear order -- turns 50. The number of nuclear arms has been drastically reduced since a peak in the mid-1980s when there were some 70,000 nuclear warheads in the world. While Kile said progress should not be underesti-

mated, he also noted a number of worrying trends, such as the build-up of nuclear arms on both sides of the border between India and Pakistan, and the danger of a conventional conflict escalating to a nuclear one. There is also a more general trend towards an “increased salience” of nuclear weapons, where changing strategic doctrines, particularly in the US, are giving nuclear weapons an expanded role in both military operations and national security dialogue, Kile said. “I think the trend is moving away from where we were five years ago, where the world’s nuclear weapons were being marginalised,” Kile said. Former UN chief Ban Ki-moon recently urged nuclear powers to “get serious” about disarmament and warned there was a “very real risk” that decades of work on international arms control could collapse following the US pullout of the Iran nuclear deal, which he said sent the wrong signal to North Korea. Global disarmament efforts also suffered a blow when the United States announced in February it would withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty, prompting Russia to say it would also suspend its participation.

Islamabad, Jun 17 (IANS): A 22-year-old social media activist and blogger known for his criticism of the country’s military and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency has been killed by unidentified assailants in the capital, the police said on Monday. Muhammad Bilal Khan, 22, was with his cousin when he received a phone call on Sunday night to go from Bara Kahu area in Islamabad to G-9, where a man took him into the forest, Dawn newspaper reported citing Superintendent of Police Saddar Malik Naeem as saying.

The blogger had more than 16,000 followers on Twitter, over 48,000 subscribers on YouTube and 22,000 on Facebook. Khan was also a freelance journalist.

Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi dies in court

Cairo, Jun 17 (Agencies): Egypt’s former President Mohamed Morsi has died after appearing in court, according to state media. The 67-year-old died after fainting during a court session in Egypt’s capital, Cairo, on Monday, state TV reported. “He was speaking before the judge for 20 minutes then became very animated and fainted. He was quickly rushed to the hospital where he later died,” a judicial source said. Morsi became Egypt’s first democratically elected president in 2012 after the Arab Spring uprising of the previous year saw the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule. He was then deposed following mass protests and a military coup in July 2013. Moris served just one year of a four-year term, while the organisation to which he belonged, the Muslim Brotherhood, has since been outlawed. The Cairo Criminal Court had adjourned the trial of Morsi and 23 others in the case of “collaborating with Hamas” for to-

morrow. In November 2016, the Court of Cassation scrapped the life imprisonment sentence for Morsi and 21 other defendants, including some who had received the death penalty, in the same case, and ordered a retrial. Morsi, who was facing at least six trials, had been behind bars for six years and was serving a 20year prison sentence for a conviction arising from the killing of protesters during demonstrations in 2012. He was also serving a life sentence for espionage in a case related to the Gulf state of Qatar. The other charges against the former leader include jailbreak, insulting the judiciary and involvement in terrorism.

Iran to breach nuclear deal enrichment limit DUBAI/LONDON, Jun 17 (Agencies): Iran said on Monday it would breach internationally agreed curbs on its stock of low-enriched uranium in 10 days — a move likely to worsen tensions with Washington — but it added European nations could still save a nuclear deal that sets those limits. According to Reuters, in an indication of concern at Iran’s announcement, Germany urged Tehran to meet all its obligations under the 2015 accord. Britain said if Iran breached limits agreed under the deal then London would look at “all options”. Close U.S. ally Israel, Iran’s arch foe, urged world powers to step up sanctions against Tehran swiftly should it exceed the enriched uranium limit. U.S.-Iran tensions are growing following accusations by U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration that Tehran last Thursday attacked two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, a vital oil shipping route. Iran denies having any role.

China rallies behind Hong Kong’s embattled chief Beijing, Jun 17 (IANS): China on Monday rallied behind Hong Kong’s beleaguered chief executive, facing a growing clamour for her resignation over the controversial extradition bill. Hong Kong, a semiautonomous city of China, plunged into its worst political crisis after it sought to pass a Beijing-backed law that would have allowed extradition to the mainland. The proposed legislation has triggered vociferous public protests in the former British colony where people see it a Beijing’s ploy to tighten its grip on the city that has its own legal system and police. Even though Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam has suspended the legislation, Sunday saw millions of protesters pouring into streets and demanding that Beijing-backed official step down. When asked if the mainland supported Hong Kong’s chief, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Beijing had always supported

UNGMA SENSO TELONGJEM KOHIMA Condemns firing at MLA’s Residence The Ungma Senso Telongjem Kohima (USTK) express grave concern and condemns the act of targeting the residence of Shri Sharingain, MLA with gunshot on 6th June 2019 by unidentified miscreants, Nothing whatsoever can justify resort to such criminal act of aggression and violence against any individual, more so against respectable elected leaders of society. Guns are not the solution to societal problems no matter how serious the issue may be, and violence only begets violence. There is no place in civil society for any person who takes law into his own hands. The Union, therefore, urges upon the authority to conduct swift and thorough investigation into the matter, and bring to book the offender(s), so that in future such incidents are prevented.

Amazon’s bracelet gives electric shock when it detects nasty habits A n armband that promises to help you kick bad habits like eating too much fast food or biting your nails is being sold by Amazon for ÂŁ193 ($242). The Pavlok bracelet gives users a penalty of a 350-volt electric shock every time they step out of line. It works for a wide range of nasty habits including smoking, sleeping in, spending too much time on the internet and even sleeping in. Users have to administer the shocks themselves or the Pavlok app can be downloaded by friends so that they can give you a buzz if they catch you out. Some habits - particularly those that are sleep related, such as not waking up at the right time - can be automated via the app. Users need to wear their bands - created by Behavioral Technology in Salt Lake City, Utah throughout the day and give themselves a zap when they engage in the habit they’re trying to quit. The company claims that ‘within 3-5 days’, you’ll begin to notice your cravings significantly reduced if not gone entirely. ‘Pavlok allows you to

speak your reptile brain’s language by adding an unpleasant element, or a safe and harmless ‘zap’ of electricity on your wrist. This means that what you have been taught to love, it conditions your mind to associate an ‘unpleasant’

feeling with your bad habit, according to the manufacturer. It has 150 shocks per charge, so, depending how much of a rule breaker you are, it could last a while. Inventor Maneesh Sethi says that while it isn’t as powerful as a shock from a tazer, it still delivers enough voltage to shock you make you jump. He told ABC news: ‘It feels like if you were to touch a doorknob after rubbing your socks on the carpet.’

He added: ‘There’s a real power in using a little bit of pain to help you break your bad habits.’ The idea was born out of Mr Sethi’s social media addiction. ‘I suffered from ADHD, and found myself addicted to Facebook. I wrote a blog post where I hired someone to slap me every time I went on Facebook, and my productivity skyrocketed,’ he said. ‘On the other hand, none of my many fitness trackers motivated me at all. So I thought, ‘why are there so many devices tracking what I do, but not changing what I do?’ And Pavlok was born.’ Although there are many testimonies on the internet from people who have successfully quit bad habits using the watch, not everyone is convinced. Some experts say that the band’s technology is ‘not a science’. Doctor Greg Cason, a psychologist said: ‘Devices like this don’t really work. Unless they are locked onto people’s wrists, they’re going to take them off.’ Reviews on Amazon’s website have also been mixed. (Dailymail)

BI quits K-pop group iKON & label after drug allegations


I, the leader of the popular K-pop boyband iKON, has announced he is leaving the group following allegations that he had tried to purchase marijuana and LSD. The K-pop idol — born Kim Han-bin — revealed his decision through Instagram: “It is true that I wanted to rely on something that I shouldn’t have had any interest in due to going through a hard and painful time. However, I was too scared and fearful to do it. Even so, I am so ashamed and apologetic to fans who were greatly disappointed and hurt because of my wrong words and actions. I intend to humbly selfreflect on my mistake and leave the team,� Kim wrote in Korean, as translated by Soompi. Kim’s label, YG Entertainment, has since confirmed that his exclusive contract with them has been dissolved. The company stated that Kim understands his responsibilities as a pub-

lic figure and, due to his actions, has decided to leave both iKON and YG Entertainment. Kim has also been removed from iKON’s bio on the company’s website. News of Kim’s attempts to buy marijuana and LSD in April 2016 first broke at 2am last Wednesday morning, as reported by South Korean media agency Dispatch. The report included several exchanges between the singer and the drug dealer, identified by the letter “A,� on KakaoTalk (a popular messaging app in South Korea). Subsequent South Korean news reports from Naver and Daum have alleged that the identity of “A� is a former YG Entertainment trainee named Han Seo Hee. Han was previously involved in a similar drugrelated scandal in 2017 involving TOP of veteran K-pop boyband Big Bang (who are also signed with YG Entertainment). TOP eventually pleaded guilty and received a two-year probation sentence. Despite the controversy and the loss of their leader, iKON will go on without Kim, YG Entertainment confirmed. The boyband is set to embark on their scheduled Japanese tour, which kicks off in Fukuoka on July 27. (NME)

Copa America: Uruguay beat Ecuador

Belo Horizonte, Jun 17 (Agencies): Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani were on target as Uruguay thumped 10-man Ecuador 4-0 in their opening Group C match at the Copa America on Sunday. Nicolas Lodeiro opened the scoring after just six minutes before Ecuador full-back Jose Quintero was dismissed for a flailing arm. With a numerical advantage, Uruguay ran riot at the Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonte as Cavani and Suarez netted before the break. The rout was completed 12 minutes from time with an Arturo Mina own goal. Uruguay were off to a dream start. Suarez crossed from the right and Lodeiro proved the coolest customer in the Mineirao stadium as he beat one defender with his chest control, flicked the ball over another and then hit a crisp, low volley into the bottom far corner. Uruguay were rampant and had the ball in the net soon afterwards only for Cavani to be given offside in the build-up. Ecuador brought a physicality to the contest that upset the Uruguayan players and Quintero was perhaps lucky to escape punishment when catching Diego Laxalt with an elbow in an aerial challenge. But moments later, his arm made contact with

Summer soccer tournament 2019

I believe I can win a Grand Slam: Konta

Birmingham, Jun 17 (Agencies): Johanna Konta is convinced she has got what it takes to win a Grand Slam. The British No 1 will play her first tournament since reaching her third Grand Slam semi-final in Paris at the Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham this week. And Konta is bullish about her Grand Slam prospects, with just over a fortnight to go until Wimbledon starts. “I wouldn’t be playing if I didn’t believe I could be winning Grand Slams,” said Konta. “Hopefully it will come. It might not, but I am working towards it coming.” With Andy Murray unable to take part in the men’s singles at Wimbledon, Konta will carry British hopes going into the 2019 tournament at the All England Club. But Konta does not feel there is any added pressure on her shoulders, insisting she enjoys this part of the season because she gets to play close to home. “There is a lot of normality that comes with this period for me which is really nice,” Konta added. “It’s not my first grass season and it’s not a new experience for me in that sense. But more than anything I always look forward to the grass because I get to be at home. I just drove

Not many players get to experience that in a season, just pop to your tournament.” Konta reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon two years ago but has never made it past the second round in six previous appearances at the Edgbaston Priory Club The 28-year-old, seeded seventh for the Nature Valley Classic, said, “This will be my first grass-court tournament [of the year] and I’m just looking for-

Last year I lost to Petra (Kvitova), the year before to Coco (Vandeweghe), so I’ve played some very capable players, especially on this surface.” “I wouldn’t say it’s anything specifically to do with Birmingham or the tournament. It’s always a lot to do with the opponents that you play. There’s no reason why this year I can’t do better. It might not happen but I’ll be working towards hopefully making it happen.”

Jason Roy to miss next two World Cup games Lo n d o n, J u n 1 7 (Agencies): England will miss the services of Jason Roy in the next two matches as the opener has suffered a hamstring tear. Roy pulled up his hamstring while chasing a ball during the eighth over of England’s previous match against the West Indies. While the hosts won the game by eight wickets, the 28-year-old played no further part and underwent scans on Saturday in London. “The MRI confirmed that Roy has suffered a hamstring tear. As a result of the injury, he will be reassessed on an ongoing basis this week,” an ECB statement read. “He is set to miss England’s next two matches in the World Cup against Afghanistan (June 18) and Sri Lanka (June 21),” it added.

Bengaluru, Jun 17 (IANS): Bengaluru FC have completed the signing of former player Eugeneson Lyngdoh on a one-year deal, the club announced on Monday. The 32-year-old midfielder once again joins the Indian Super League champions after a two-year stint with Kolkata-side Atletico de Kolkata (ATK), who had signed the Shillongborn playmaker during the Indian Super League draft in 2017. A favourite among the

supporters, Lyngdoh first joined Bengaluru FC in 2014 after stints with Meghalaya’s Shillong Lajong and Rangdajied United. Going on to become a vital part of the side under Ashley Westwood and then under Albert Roca, Lyngdoh scored some crucial goals for the Blues en route to winning three major trophies apart from helping the club to a maiden AFC Cup final in 2016.

again,” he added. At Bengaluru, Lyngdoh scored 16 goals in 74 appearances in three seasons while winning the Federation Cup in 201415 and 2016-17 and the I-League in 2016-17. The creative midfielder even bagged the All India Football Federation (AIFF) Player of the Year award for 2015, the second BFC player to claim the honour after Sunil Chhetri.

Shakib, Liton star as B’desh crush WI

Shakib Al Hasan celebrates his century with Liton Das during the ICC World Cup match between Bangladesh and West Indies.

Tau n t o n, J u n 1 7 (Agencies): All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan on Monday hit his ninth ODI hundred to lead Bangladesh to a 7-wicket win over West Indies in a thrilling game in Taunton and keep his team’s campaign alive in the World Cup 2019. Bangladesh rode on Shakib Al Hasan’s unbeaten 124 off 83 balls to pull off their highest successful run chase in ODIs as they reached the target of 322 in 41.3 overs. They matched their own record of the second highest successful run chase in World Cup history. This was Bangladesh’s second win of the tournament and also Shakib’s second successive century in this

edition. During the course of his innings, Shakib also completed 6000 runs in ODI cricket. He is only the second Bangladeshi cricketer to achieve the feat after Tamim Iqbal and only the fourth player overall to score over 6000 runs and take 250 wickets in the format after Sanath Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka), Jacques Kallis (South Africa) and Shahid Afridi (Pakistan). The No.1 all-rounder in the world though, is the fastest to achieve the double on this list. The win also lifted Bangladesh to fifth on the points table with five points behind Australia, New Zealand, India and England.

Shakib was superbly assisted during the chase by Litton Das (94 not out) as the duo added 189 runs for the unbeaten fourth-wicket partnership to guide Bangladesh to victory. Tamim Iqbal also made a crucial contribution at the top, scoring 48 off 53 balls while fellow opener Soumya Sarkar made 29 off 23 balls. The West Indies bowlers once again struggled to take wickets and keep the scoring rate under check on a good batting track in Taunton. Andre Russell and Oshane Thomas struck once each while the rest failed to fire which led to West Indies’ downfall. This was West Indies’ third loss in five matches

and it saw them drop down to seventh on the points table. Earlier, West Indies batsman Shai Hope hit a patient 96 while Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer also made half-centuries to help the former champions post a competitive 321-8 from 50 overs after being put into bat. Hope struck only one six and four boundaries in his 121-ball knock while Lewis scored 70 before Hetmeyer smashed a 26-ball 50 and skipper Jason Holder added a quick-fire 33 to boost the West Indies total on a good pitch for batting. The dangerous Chris Gayle departed for a 13-ball duck after Bangladesh won the toss and asked the West Indies to bat first, but Hope and Lewis stitched together a 116-run partnership for the second wicket to lay the platform for a competitive total. Pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman was the pick of the Bangladesh bowlers as he claimed three wickets, including those of Hope and Hetmeyer, while Mohammad Saifuddin also finished with three to restrict the Caribbean side.

Brief Scores West Indies: 321/8 (Shai Hope 96, Evin Lewis 70; Mustafizur Rahman 3/59, Mohammad Saifuddin 3/72) Bangladesh: 322/3 (Shakib Al Hasan 124 not out, Liton Das 94 not out)

Bhuvneshwar out for next 2-3 games Manchester, Jun 17 (IANS): Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who suffered a hamstring injury against Pakistan, will be sidelined for a maximum of three games in the ongoing World Cup, skipper Virat Kohli has confirmed. Kumar injured his hamstring while bowling the fourth ball of his second over and had to walk off the field during Pakistan’s chase of 337 on Sunday. Upon leaving the field, he was examined by team physio Patrick Farhart and a decision was taken to keep him off the field, with Vijay Shankar and Hardik Pandya combining to fill for him. “Bhuvi’s case looks like a niggle, a case of slipping on the footmarks. It doesn’t look too serious at the moment and looks like he could recover in a couple of games from now, maximum of three games,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony after India thrashed Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS method) at the Old Trafford. The Indian skipper added that they will include Mohammad Shami who is raring to go. “He is going to be an important factor for us so hopefully he can recover in time. But we have Shami with us and it shouldn’t be much of a worry for us. Even Bhuvi doesn’t think his niggle is too bad and that time would heal it,” he added.

Real finalise transfer worth €315m

M a d ri d, J u n 1 7 (Agencies): Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane couldn’t wait for last season to end. Now he can’t wait for the new campaign to begin. Just over two weeks after seeing Liverpool succeed them as European champions, los Blancos have already finalised transfers for five players, for a grand total of €315 million. Eden Hazard’s arrival has obviously generated the most headlines. Ten years after Zidane first recommended the former Lille winger to club president Florentino Perez in his role as an unofficial adviser, the Belgian has finally arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu, from Chelsea - and at a cost of €100m. Despite Karim Benzema’s fine form in an otherwise dreadful season for Madrid, an additional €70m has been spent on a centre-forward, Serbian sensation Luka Jovic, who is coming off the back of a prolific campaign at Eintracht Frankfurt. And let us not forget that Real reached an agreement with Santos last year for teenage sensation Rodrygo, who will complete his €45m move to the Spanish capital this summer. The Brazilian is still only 18 and could easily be sent out on loan but it is also worth remembering that compatriot and fel-

low forward Vinicius was also expected to spend last season with Real Madrid Castilla. I n s t e a d , Vi n i c i u s proved one of the revelations of Real’s dismal 201819 campaign before injury checked his progress, as well as denying him a chance to make his Selecao debut in the spring. Madrid will, thus, be privately hoping that Rodrygo – along with €2m Castilla signing Takefusa Kubo – can make just as instantaneous an impact in Spain and reinvigorate an attack that looked tired and predictable last term. The 13-time European champions have also addressed their issues at the back, though. Real may have persuaded club captain Sergio Ramos to reject a lucrative move to China but that doesn’t mean that they

aren’t planning for the future, as the €50m acquisition of Porto’s versatile centre-back Eder Militao underlines. In addition, Marcelo didn’t just lose his status as the world’s best left-back last season, he also regularly lost his starting berth to Sergio Reguilon. As a result, Madrid splashed €48m on Lyon’s Ferland Mendy, the fantastically fast and offensivelyminded Frenchman who has been described as “The Kylian Mbappe of fullbacks”. With all of this in mind, Zidane’s revamped Real look set to thrill fans of attacking football. However, they represent a terrifying proposition for all of their rivals, many of whom have not moved nearly as quickly in the summer transfer market.

Mero calls for development of football


K o h ima , J u n 1 7 (NPN): Khwetelhi Thopi brace in the last minute helped league leaders Forerunners FC Thizama earn a hard fought victory over Kohima Eagles FC 2-1 at the ongoing Seyie Auto Kohima Football League-3 here at IG Stadium, Kohima on Monday. The win kept the team on top of the league table with 12 points in the four matches and two matches remaining. A match against second place Vanguard FC on June 21 could be the title decider of the season. Kohima Eagles FC played a defensive game and dominated the possession. However both team failed to score in the first half. Thopi managed to drill the opponent’s defense with his pace but lacked the composure to score. Kohima Eagles FC took the lead when Kekhrieletuo Tsira scored through a stunning long range kick leaving the Forerunners

managed to dribble past the defender and slotted home the winning goal in the injury added time.

Phek District Football Association (PDFA) president Colo Mero on Monday called for development of football in the state, adding that Nagaland Football Association and district associations have a big role to play. He therefore, appealed to the associations to extend their support and contribute for the game to progress in the state. Speaking at the Seyie Auto Kohima Football League-3 as match patron, Mero also lauded Kohima Town Club for organising the tournament. Stating that serious clubs have come up in the state, he highlighted on the need for stakeholders to invest in football. “For overall development of football, the state needs stakeholders. The state government has to take interest and create such facilities for training and platform,” he added. The president also opined that the state should have enough football grounds to facilitate the footballers. It may be mentioned here that IG Stadium at Kohima is the only professional football ground in Nagaland. While challenging the footballers to give their best in the game, Mero reminded that football is not just about money and facilities but giving their best and growing up in the game. He also encouraged the footballers to be disciplined, to be loyal and true to their clubs.

Paul Pogba

Lo n d o n, J u n 1 7 (Agencies): Manchester United expect midfielder Paul Pogba to stay at the club this summer. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, sees the France midfielder as a key part of his plans for his first full season in charge at Old Trafford. Pogba, 26, said on Sunday that, “it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else”. Real Madrid and Juventus are interested in signing the World Cup winner, who has two years remaining on his contract as well as an additional one-year option. Sky Sports News reported in April that Real were confident of signing Pogba and Eden Hazard this

summer. Hazard completed a £130m move from Chelsea to the Bernabeu last week. Meanwhile, Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici is understood to have travelled to United’s London offices last week to hold talks over potentially bringing Pogba back to Turin, three years after he left for United. It is understood that negotiations are at an early stage, with Juventus rightback Joao Cancelo thought to be part of discussions. In March, Pogba said it would be “a dream for anyone” to play for Real Madrid under Zinedine Zidane. Later that month, Zidane said, “if one day he wanted to leave United... why shouldn’t he come to Real Madrid?”

Women’s WC: US beat Chile to reach last 16 PSG consider Neymar sale PARIS, Jun 17 (Agencies): Veteran striker Carli Lloyd scored twice as the United States beat Chile 3-0 on Sunday, sending the current holders into the last 16 at the Women’s World Cup despite some remarkable resistance from the opposition goalkeeper Christiane Endler. Lloyd, one of the biggest names in the women’s game, became the first player to score in six consecutive World Cup matches but missed out on a hat-trick when she put a late penalty wide. Yet Chilean keeper Endler, on her home Parc des Princes ground, was the player of the match, earning all the plaudits after pulling off several stunning saves to keep the score down. The United States will next play Sweden to decide top spot in group F after the Scandinavian side had earlier booked their place in the knockout stages, also with a maximum six points,

by beating Thailand 5-1. The US, coming off a record 13-0 win over Thailand in their opener, still lead the group on goal difference, having quickly improved their tally when Lloyd smashed home the first of their three first-half goals with an 11th minute half-volley. It followed an early onslaught that had already

seen the U.S. miss several clear-cut chances, including Lloyd hitting the post from close range with Paris St Germain’s Endler then reacting quickest to deny the US striker from the rebound. US midfielder Julie Ertz doubled the score on 26 minutes, flicking in a header from a corner and Lloyd, captain for the day,

then powered home from another corner nine minutes later after easily losing her marker. That took the 36-yearold Lloyd’s tally in the tournament to three, and 10 overall in World Cups. A three-time Olympian and only the second player, man or woman, to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final when the U.S won in

2015, Lloyd came off the bench against Thailand to score their 13th goal and could now be challenging for a starting spot. The US coach changed seven outfield players from the first game giving the squad a good rest ahead of the table-topping decider with Sweden on June 20. The champions began the second-half in the same attacking vein but Endler made a string of saves, including acrobatically tipping over a Christen Press volley and then clawing away a point-blank header from the same player minutes later. Lloyd almost had her hat-trick on 72 minutes, looping a header over Endler, but watched in despair as it bounced back off the bar. She then had a golden chance to seal her hat-trick in the 81st minute after a pitchside VAR review saw a penalty awarded following a tug in the box, but she skewed it wide.

Paris, Jun 17 (Agencies): Paris St Germain are prepared to sell striker Neymar, French media reports said, as chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi warned that irresponsible behaviour from players won’t be tolerated anymore. The Brazil international joined the Ligue 1 side from Barcelona for a world record 222 million euros ($248.91 million) in August 2017. However, he missed large parts of the 2018-19 campaign through injury and suspension and made just 17 league appearances, scoring 15 goals. PSG will consider selling the 27-year-old in the forthcoming transfer window if they receive a substantial offer, a report in L’Equipe said on Sunday. Neymar is said to be unsettled at the club and to have told relatives that he was having difficulties in France even before he was accused of raping a woman


in a Paris hotel in May. The player has denied any wrongdoing. The report comes on the back of strong comments from chairman and CEO Al-Khelaifi about the attitude of squad members. “Players will have to be more responsible than before,” he told France Football. “It must be completely different. They will have to do more and work harder.

They are not there for their own amusement. If they do not agree, the doors are open — Ciao! I do not want star behaviour anymore.” His words come after a disappointing season for Thomas Tuchel’s side who, despite clinching the league title, were knocked out of the Champions League at the last 16 stage by Manchester United. They also failed to win either of France’s major domestic cup competitions.
