NEW DELHI, NOV 9 (PTI): Settling a fractious issue that goes back more than a century, the Supreme Court in a historic verdict on Saturday backed the construction of a Ram temple by a government trust at the disputed site in Ayodhya and ruled that an alternative 5-acre plot must be found for a mosque in the Hindu holy town. Delivering a unanimous verdict on a case that has long polarised the country and frayed the secular tapestry of Indian society, a five-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the faith of Hindus that Lord Ram was born at the site was undisputed, and he is symbolically the owner of the land. Yet, it is also

DIMAPUR, NOV 9 (NPN): Mokokchung district administration has issued a traffic advisory following multiple mudslides along Mokokchung -Mariani Road (NH7020) and Mokokchung -Amguri Road (NH-2). In a press note, ADC Mokokchung said the said highway may not be open/safe/motorable for vehicular movement especially during night time.

clear that the destruction of the 16th century threedomed structure by Hindu kar sevaks, who want to build a Ram temple there, was a wrong that “must be remedied,” the ruling said. The judgement said it is not concerned with faith and belief, and instead treated the case as a title dispute over land between three parties -- the Sunni Muslim Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara, a Hindu group, and the symbolic Lord Rama designated as Ram Lalla Virajman. The judgement running into 1,045 pages was widely welcomed by Hindu politicians and groups, while the Muslim leadership said they will accept the verdict, even though they described it as flawed. Still, they called for peace and calm, and leaders

across the political spectrum noted that it was now time to move on. The dispute over the site of Babri Masjid, a threedomed mosque built by or at the behest of Moghul emperor Babur, dates back centuries with Hindus contending that the invading Muslim armies had razed an existing Ram temple to erect the mosque. However, it turned into a legal dispute in 1885 when a mahant went to court seeking permission to build a canopy outside the mosque. The plea was dismissed. In December 1949, unidentified miscreants spirited an idol of Lord Ram into the mosque. The structure was destroyed by a large mob of kar sevaks on December 6, 1992.

CPO dismayed over WC, NNPG statement D I M A P U R , N OV 9 (NPN): Chakhesang Public Organisation (CPO) has expressed shock and disappointment at the statement of WC, NNPGs, which blamed the convenor and co-convenor of Public Action Committee (PAC) of Naga Council Dimapur (NCD). In a press release, CPO president, Mikha Kenye, and general secretary, Veduvo Rhakho, said that “creating another cycle of threat and intimidation” at a time when the tribal hohos have extended their support for logical conclusion of the political negotiations was “totally uncalled for and very unfortunate.” CPO said that PAC has, “in fact”, taken the task in public interest, which otherwise was the job of the government to tackle such law and order

problem. Stating that PAC has mass support in handling this particular problem, CPO said “This plainly indicates that the WC, NNPGs cannot afford to take public for granted in giving public support for political talks.” Further, CPO asserted that the “provocative” press statement runs the risk of even “derailing the agreement that was awaiting for final seal.” Chakhesang Public Organisation has appealed to WC, NNPGs to retract from their instant statement and exercise restrain even in future for the larger interest of peace. “Whatever humane problems they are facing should be discussed across the table to find humane solution through mutual understanding,” CPO maintained.

The Supreme Court judgment on the Ayodhya issue has heralded a “new dawn” and should not be seen as win or loss for anybody, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday, stressing that India’s credo of unity in diversity was visible in its totality as all sections of society accepted the verdict with an open heart. Addressing the nation after the verdict in the politically and communally sensitive case was pronounced, Modi invoked the fall of Berlin wall on November 9, 1989 as he urged people to shun any fear, bitterness and negativity and come together to build a new India. Hailing the Supreme Court for delivering verdict on an important issue “which has a history of hundreds of years”, he pointed out that the entire country wanted the court to hear the matter daily and it happened.

Fuel prices hiked for second day DIMAPUR, NOV 9 (NPN): State-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) hiked the prices of petrol and diesel for the second consecutive day on Saturday across major cities of the country. Petrol price was raised by 14-16 paise per litre while the diesel price went up by 7-8 paise per litre. In Dimapur, a litre of petrol and diesel was Rs.72.86 and Rs.63.77 respectively while in Kohima, petrol was retailing at Rs.71.67 per litre and diesel price stood at Rs.64.40. Currently, OMCs review the domestic prices of petrol and diesel on a daily basis, and any changes determined broadly by the global crude oil prices and the foreign exchange rates - are effected at the fuel stations at 6 am. For the first time in over a month, OMCs increased petrol and diesel prices by 9-10 paise across major cities on Friday.

PM Narendra Modi (PTI)

“For the Indian judiciary, it is a golden day. The Supreme Court heard everyone with patience and delivered a unanimous verdict,” Modi said in his 11minute-long address. He said the judges, the courts and the judicial processes should be greeted for their strong will. Referring to the dispute, the prime minister said the judgment has heralded a “new dawn” for the people. He said peace, unity and amity are essential for development of India and described November 9 as a day to forget any bitterness one may have.

characteristics and air pollution levels and sources,” said researcher Cathryn Tonne from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal). It was published in the journal International Journal of Epidemiology. Previous studies indicate that inflammation and atherosclerosis are most likely responsible for the association between longterm exposure to air pollution and cardiovascular disease and mortality. For the findings, the research team picked India, a lower middle income country with high levels of air pollution. The study was performed with 3,372 participants from a periurban region of Hyderabad, Telangana, in southern India. The research team

measured CIMT and estimated exposure to air pollution using an algorithm called land use regression (LUR) frequently used to predict the amount of fine particles (suspended particles with a diameter under 2.5 µm) in high-income countries. The participants also provided information on the type of cooking fuel they used. The results indicate that high annual exposure to ambient fine particles was associated with a higher carotid intima-media thickness, particularly in men, participants above 40 years of age, or those with cardiometabolic risk factors. Sixty per cent of participants used biomass cooking fuel. “people using biomass fuel for cooking had a higher CIMT, particularly

DIMAPUR, NOV 9 (NPN): Union Minister of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Giriraj Singh, on his maiden visit to Nagaland, Saturday visited ICAR- National Research Centre (NRC) on Mithun at Jharnapani and College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry at Jalukie, where he inaugurated Veterinary clinical complex and girls hostel. He was accompanied by R. Khing, Advisor, AH & Veterinary Services and Women Resource Development, and L. Khumo, Advisor Fisheries and Dr. J. K.

Also, speaking on the occasion, Dr. J. K. Jena, DDG (Fisheries & AS), ICAR mentioned that ICAR-NRC on Mithun was the only research institute in the world and highlighted the importance of mithun in rural economy. Dr. Abhijit Mitra, Director, ICAR-NRC on Mithun, stressed on the importance of mithun for social and economic development of the state.

He also raised concern about the non-availability of banking scheme for getting loan for mithun rearing and lack of insurance for mithun husbandry. He said that resolution to include mithun as food animal has been passed from Nagaland Assembly and also been cleared by ICAR but still clearance from FSSAI was pending. He requested the union minister to take some initiative to include mithun as food animal. Dr. Mitra also requested the Minister to include mithun in all the centrally sponsored schemes available for cattle and buffaloes so that mithun farmers could be benefited.

Maha Gov asks BJP to ‘indicate willingness’ to form govt MUMBAI, NOV 9 (PTI): Maharashtra Gover nor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Saturday evening asked the BJP, the single largest party in the state, to “indicate willingness and ability” to form government, creating hope that the 15-day-long political impasse in the state will end. The BJP’s core committee will meet on Sunday and decide the future course of action, party leader Chandrakant Patil said. A dvo c a t e G e n e r a l Ashutosh Kumbhakoni had met Governor Koshyari at Raj Bhavan earlier in the day, sources said. The term of 13th Legislative Assembly of the state is due to end on Saturday midnight. “We have just received the letter from the governor,” Chandrakant Patil, who is state BJP president, told PTI. “Our core committee will meet tomorrow and discuss the future course of action,” he added.

Air pollution in India linked to heart attack, stroke NEW DELHI, NOV 9 (IANS): Researchers conducting a study in a periurban area in southern India have found that air pollution in the country is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). The study shows that people most exposed to fine particles have a higher CIMT index (carotid intima-media thickness) -- a marker of atherosclerosis -- which means they are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular diseases such as stroke or heart attack. “Our findings highlight the need to perform more studies on air pollution in low- and middleincome countries, since the conclusions may differ considerably from studies in high income countries due to differences in population

women who cooked in unventilated spaces.” In addition, “women had a higher CIMT than men, which could be due to the fact that they spend more time in the kitchen, breathing air polluted by biomass fuel,” study first author Otavio Ranzani, explained. According to the study, annual average exposure to PM2.5 was 32,7 µg/m3, far above the maximum levels recommended by the WHO (10 µg/m3). “This study is relevant for countries which, like India, are experiencing a rapid epidemiological transition and a sharp increase in the prevalence of hypertension, diabetes and obesity,” Tonne said. “In addition, the country is affected by high levels of air pollution, both ambient and indoors,” Tonne added.

Devendra Fadnavis

Uddhav Thackeray

According to Raj Bhavan statement, the governor asked Devendra Fadnavis, who is the leader of the state BJP’s legislature wing, to “indicate the willingness and ability of his party to form the government”. “Elections to the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly were held on October 21 and the results were declared on October 24. However, despite the passage of 15 days, no single party or alliance of parties has come forward to

form the government,” the statement said. “The Governor has therefore decided to explore the possibility of formation of Government and today asked the leader of the elected members of the single largest party, that is BJP, to convey its willingness and ability to form the government,” it further said. The BJP won 105 seats in the October 21 elections, while the majority mark in the 288-member Assembly

is 145. Its ally Shiv Sena has won 56 seats, but the two parties are bickering over chief minister’s post. The Shiv Sena has shifted most of its 56 MLAs to a hotel in suburban Malad, apparently to guard them against `poaching’ attempts. As many as 35 of the 44 Congress MLAs are in Jaipur, in Congress-ruled Rajasthan. A party legislator told PTI seeking anonymity that more MLAs are expected to join them. AICC general secretary Mallikarjun Kharge and Maharashtra Congress president Balasaheb Thorat will meet them in Jaipur on Sunday, he said. NCP president Sharad Pawar has called a meeting of party MLAs next week, a party source said. “The MLAs will be coming to Mumbai on Monday. The meeting may happen a day later,” the source said.

NNPGs appeal to all Naga groups for unconditional unity D I M A P U R , N OV 9 (NPN): Barely three days after NSCN (I-M) had called upon different groups to get on board the Framework Agreement (FA) and be a part of the final solution, Working Committee (WC) of the NNPGs appealed to all Naga groups to prepare themselves for “unconditional unity.” Reacting to NSCN (I-M)’s the statement published on November 7, WC through its media cell wondered whether the appeal was intended to reach out to those groups not party to the ongoing peace process with the government of India or the WC, NNPGs. If it was intended to ask WC, NNPG to come under FA, it said the leadership may consider few points as to why the Agree-

ment was and will remain an inferior political document now and in the future. “No doubt it was a good photo frame opportunity for IM leaders yet posterity will hold on to the content of both the FA of 3rd August 2015 and Agreed Position or Preamble signed between the GOI and NNPG on 17th Nov. 2017. Naga generations will treasure the document contents and not the photos,” WC stated. It reminded that the WC has negotiated with government of India “on the principle and basis of 1929 Naga memorandum and 1951 Naga plebiscite”. After days and days of sustained negotiations

with Centre’s interlocutor, insisting on historical milestones, WC said both sides finally inked the ‘Agreed Position’ which was crystal clear today, adding it was through the solidarity and prayer support of “our people”. WC said the essence and spirit of Naga struggle shines through, as “this document will stand the test of time and tell the Nagas that their future is secured”. WC asserted that in the 90 years of Naga political awakening, whether during British rule or post India independent, Naga history had no record of any political agreement within appended signatures mentioning Nagas self determining their future.

Mnp Cong attacks BJP for refusing spl session

Tripura Cong slams removal of Gandhis' SPG cover Ex-CM Ibobi says ruling coalition fears reprisal of central leadership over naga solution AGARTALA, NOV 9


IMPHAL, Nov 9: Afraid of Central leaderships, the BJP-led coalition government has been refusing to convene a special session of the state Assembly, former Manipur chief minister and opposition leader O Ibobi Singh alleged on Saturday. The opposition leader was addressing a press conference at his official quarter in Imphal in the presence of Congress legislators of the state including CWC member Gaikhangam. Chief minister N Biren Singh and other leaders of the coalition government have no guts to express state government’s firm stand on Manipur’s integrity before the Prime Minister and Union home minister, he alleged. He observed that fearing possible action against them from the leaderships might be the reason behind Biren government’s refusal to convene a special session of the state Assembly. CSOs under the aegis of Coordination Committee of Manipur Integrity (COCOMI) and political parties have been pressing the state government to convene a special session of the state Assembly and adopt a fresh resolution to safeguard state’s geographical boundary and to object to any move which will impact the unity and integrity of the state in future. The former chief minister observed the reason behind chief minister N Biren Singh’s refusal might be

fear of removal from chief minister’s chair or skipping of session by MLAs of coalition partners of the government. Whatever the reason it may be, leaderships of the incumbent government must remembered that being a chief minister, ministers or MLAs would be meaningless if Manipur is broken, he said. O Ibobi Singh also expressed suspicion of the recently concluded peace negotiation between the Centre and Naga rebel groups while questioning the motive behind sending large number of Central paramilitary forces into the state. Law and order is a state subject and the chief minister who is also holding the home portfolio has knowledge of sending additional Central security forces in the state. The opposition leader was reacting to a recent statement of the chief minister who had denied sending additional Central forces in the state by saying that the

forces recently transported in the state were returning from election duties as well as from Assam where they were deployed in the wake of publication of updated NRC in the state. “No, the chief minister was telling lie. He has been fooling the people. A large number of additional Central paramilitary forces have arrived in the state in the last few days,” he said. He stated that if the Centre sent the additional security forces in the state without the knowledge of the state government, there was no reason to take it lightly. It showed that Central was planning something which will provoke the people of the state to appease an underground group and in the name of bringing lasting peace in the region, he added. At this crucial time, there is need for people remaining alert and all the political parties irrespective of ruling and opposition or ideology must stand united to safeguard the geographi-

cal territorial boundary of the state, he said. He further pointed out that the Centre was still concealing the contents of the infamous Framework Agreement which the Centre had signed with the NSCN(I-M) in August 2015. While the states of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh were strongly pressing the Centre to disclose the details of framework agreement, the Centre came up with another secret by not disclosing the terms and conditions in the last round of peace negotiation held on October 31, he added. As per media reports, except the flag and constitution, other demands of the NSCN(I-M) had already been settled after the last round of negotiation. It was only after the last round of negotiation that additional Central security forces were being sent to the state. Not only the paramilitary forces, but fighter jets were being deployed in the state, he said. If you look into the current security scenario in the

Manipur BJP legislators and CM dash to Delhi Correspondent IMPHAL, Nov 9: After chief minister and some ministers, more MLAs of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Manipur dashed to New Delhi on Saturday, reportedly after they were summoned by Union home minister Amit Shah. The Union home minister reportedly called the state chief minister N Biren Singh, ministers, MPs and MLAs of the state as part of his series of meetings with leaderships of three states neighbouring Nagaland. Whether the home minister’s meeting with leaders of the three states was related with consultation on recently concluded Naga peace negotiation or to review law and or-

der of the states witnessing people’s movement to safeguard their territorial integrity could not be confirmed from the state government for the time being. State chief minister N Biren Singh along with Speaker of Manipur Legislative Assembly Y Khemchand, works minister Th Biswajit, education minister Th Radheshyam and Rajya Sabha MP Ksh Bhabananda have travelled to the national capital on Friday afternoon. Amid the reports of home minister calling all the Bharatiya Janata Party legislators, seven MLAs of Bharatiya Janata Party have dashed to the national capital today. Lok Sabha MP Dr RK Ranjan has also rushed to Delhi, sources said.

Even though some media reported that they were called by the Union minister to consult on the latest development of the Naga peace talk, some others reported that the MLAs of the ruling BJP dashed to Delhi to convey government’s stand on Manipur’s integrity to the Prime Minister and Union home minister. As per the reports, Union home minister Amit Shah has begun consultations with chief ministers of the three states neighbouring Nagaland on the Naga peace negotiation. However, a source here stated that Amit Shah called in chief ministers of the three states to the national capital to discuss the ongoing agitations related to the impending solution to Naga peace talks.

He had earlier consulted with chief ministers of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, the reports said, adding that the meeting with state chief minister N Biren Singh was scheduled on Saturday evening. Central government made a commitment to consult all stakeholders before signing final agreement with National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN I-M) but it is yet to be confirmed whether the consultations were related with the commitment or taking stock of law & order situation in the three states arising out of the concluded Naga peace talks.

state, it was almost similar to Centre preparing for a war with another country, Singh said. He observed that in this developing situation in the state, it cannot be that the Central paramilitary forces were being sent in the state to assist the police in case the state face a severe breach of law and order. Singh opined this can be taken as Centre’s plan to counter people’s violent uproar when the Centre implements the framework agreement with agendas compromising state’s unity and integrity, the former chief minister said. The former chief minister then reiterated Congress clear stand for the protection of geographical boundary of the state. He said that Congress was ready to face any challenge that comes in the way of state’s geographical boundary. C o n g r e s s ’s s t a n d against Centre’s any plan to form territorial council based on ethnic line that will affect the integrity of the state in future is also very clear, he added. Meanwhile, people of different work of life continued to stage alert protests in the form of sit-ins and formation of human chain by blocking half the roads at different places of the state. An alert protest staged by transporters in Thoubal district had affected normal vehicular movement along the Imphal-Moreh section of NH-102 on Saturday.

(IANS): The Congress in Tripura on Saturday termed the BJP-led NDA government's move to withdraw the SPG security cover to the members of the Gandhi family as vendetta politics. "This is simply vindictive and vendetta politics. There is no acceptable reason to remove the SPG (Special Protection Group) protection from Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Lok Sabha member Rahul Gandhi and party General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra," Tripura Pradesh Congress ad-hoc committee Chairman Pijush Kanti Biswas said. He said that the SPG cover was withdrawn from the three top Congress leaders to prevent their free movement across the country and to restrict their campaign against the misgovernance of the government at the Centre. Biswas said that considering Rajiv Gandhi and Indira Gandhi's assassination, the grant of SPG cover to the Gandhi family was not a political favour but a vital and basic necessity. Following a review involving the Cabinet Secretariat and the Union Ministry of Home Affairs with inputs from various intelligence agencies, the SPG cover given to the Gandhis, including Congress interim President Sonia and her children, has been withdrawn and they will now get 'Z plus' security provided by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).

Hitesh Dev Sarma to be new NRC Coordinator

Hitesh Dev Sarma (File)

G u wahati , N ov 9 (IANS): Senior Assam Civil Services officer, Hitesh Dev Sarma, will be the next Coordinator of National Register of Citizens (NRC). Sarma, a 1986 batch ACS officer, is expected to assume charge on Monday. The Supreme Court had transferred NRC co-

ordinator Prateek Hajela, asking the Assam government to suggest names of officers who could succeed Hajela. Sarma was involved in the NRC works till 2016, when he moved out of the NRC directorate. The final NRC which was published on August 31 this year had excluded 1.9 million people out of the registry. The next process of the NRC is to send letters to those left out of final NRC with reason for their non-inclusion and process fresh application through the Foreigners Tribunal. The process is likely to start this month.

Hindu, Muslim leaders urge for peace

LUCKNOW, NOV 9 (PTI): Following the pronouncement of the much-awaited Supreme Court verdict in the Ram JanmabhoomiBabri Masjid title dispute case, leaders from Hindu and Muslim communities in Uttar Pradesh have urged people to maintain peace and order. The Supreme Court in a unanimous verdict on Saturday cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), which has been at the forefront of the movement demanding the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, has asked people not to express their happiness over the decision by coming out on the roads. “People have been asked not to come on the streets while expressing happiness, lighting candles or any other means, but by staying at their homes to ensure that no one’s religious sentiments are hurt,”

People belonging to Hindu and Muslim faiths celebrate the Ayodhya case, outside the Supreme Court in New Delhi, Saturday. (PTI)

VHP spokesperson Sharad Sharma told PTI. “In Ayodhya also, the Muslim population is being given the message of amity. They have also issued appeals to accept the decision as a process of law and not get instigated by those with vested interest,” he said. Senior member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board Khalid Rasheed Farangimahli appealed to

members of all religious groups to maintain peace and harmony. Reacting to the apex court verdict, he told PTI that a final statement by Muslim organisations will be issued only after studying the legalities of all aspects of the decision. Terming the judgment “a sort of victory for Muslims”, Iqbal Ansari, a litigant in the case, said: “I have

been saying that whatever the court will say will be ok. We respect the verdict. Where land will be provided for the mosque is the responsibility of the government.” BJP leader Vinay Katiyar also stressed on maintaining peace, saying Muslims should be given land for construction of a mosque as directed by the top court in order to ensure that they too get a place of worship.


Ayodhya verdict: Cong says it is in favour of Ram temple construction

Sunni Waqf Board chairman hails Ayodhya verdict LUCKNOW, NOV 9 (PTI): Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board, one of the main litigants in the Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid case, welcomed Supreme Court verdict and said it has no plans to challenge it. “We welcome SC verdict in the case. The Board has no plans to challenge it,” Board’s chairman, Zafar Ahmad Farooqui, told PTI. “As of now, the verdict is being studied thoroughly after which the Board will issue a detailed statement,” he said. “If any lawyer or any other person says the decision will be challenged by the Board, it should not be taken as correct,” Farooqui stressed. In his initial reaction soon after the judgement, Board’s counsel Zafaryab Jilani had said in Delhi, “The Ayodhya verdict has a lot of contradictions. We will seek a review as we are not satisfied with the verdict.” Talking to PTI on phone later, Jilani, however, clarified the press conference was organised by AIMPLB and he had reacted as its secretary and not as the counsel.

NEW DELHI, NOV 9 (PTI): The Congress on Saturday said it respects the Supreme Court verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute and is in favour of construction of a Ram temple there. The Congress top brass discussed the Supreme Court verdict at a special meeting of the party’s working committee and passed a resolution. The Congress Working Committee chaired by party chief Sonia Gandhi passed the resolution that appealed to all parties concerned and all communities to “abide by the secular values and spirit of fraternity enshrined in the Constitution and to maintain peace and harmony”. “It is the responsibility of each one of us to reaffirm our tradition of mutual respect and unity among all that has defined our society through the ages,” Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said quoting the resolution. The Congress said it was supportive of Ram temple construction and stated in the affirmative when asked about it. “The Supreme Court

decision has come. Certainly yes, the Congress is in favour of Lord Ram’s temple construction,” he told reporters when asked about the party’s stand on the Ram temple construction. Responding to another question, Surjewala said the Supreme Court decision in the Ayodhya case cannot be a matter of credit or discredit to any individual, group of people, community or political party. He said the Supreme Court has respected faith and belief. “Today’s decision of the Supreme Court has opened the doors for Ram temple construction, but it has also permanently

closed the doors for BJP and others to enjoy power by playing politics with the country’s faith,” he said. Lord Ram is known as a “symbol of sacrifice” for respecting his words and not for the “love of power”, he said, adding that Ram’s name can never be used to divide and anyone daring to do so does not understand the traditions of Lord Ram. H e s a i d eve r yo n e should respect the law and said the All India Muslim Law Board has also agreed to deeply respect the judgement. “Of course, everyone has the right to have their legal remedies and they can always choose to exercise their remedies. But as far as Congress is concerned, the Congress has adopted a resolution in this regard,” he said. Surjewala also recalled that the land in question in Ayodhya was acquired during the Congress government in 1993. The Congress believes that the Supreme Court has given its verdict and all parties, people and communities should respect its verdict, he said.

‘Ayodhya verdict will strengthen India’s social fabric’ No untoward incident reported from UP: DGP on Saturday termed the Supreme Court’s verdict as “historic” and urged people to accept it with “equanimity” and “magnanimity”. “The Judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court on Ayodhya is historic. The Judgement will further strengthen India’s social fabric. I urge everyone to take the verdict with equanimity and magnanimity. I also appeal to the people to maintain peace & harmony after this landmark verdict,” he tweeted. Union minister Prakash Javadekar hailed the verdict as “historic, balanced and judicious”. “The judgment of the Honourable Supreme Court on Ayodhya is historic, balanced and judicious. I am sure that everyone will welcome it,” said Javadekar. BJP ally and Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan asserted that the Supreme Court verdict has put a closure to the dispute that had lingered for more than a century. The entire nation respects this historic verdict. Thanks to the Supreme Court, Paswan said. Union minister Nitin Gadkari appealed to people to accept the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya issue as

India is a democratic country. “As people of this democratic country all should accept the decision taken by the supreme court on Ayodhya. We all have faith in the judiciary. People should maintain peace and harmony,” he told reporters. Minister of Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi the Supreme Court judgement should be welcomed and respected wholeheartedly. “It’s our collective responsibility to strengthen unity, social harmony, brotherhood in the country,” he said. The decision should not be seen as victory or loss for anyone, he said. “Kahin par bhi jeet ka junooni jashn aur haar ka hahakaari hungama nahin hona chahiye, usse bachna chahiye (Nowhere, the verdict should be excessively celebrated as a victory, nor there should be a brouhaha over the defeat. We should completely avoid this),” he added. Union minister for electronics, IT and Communications Ravi Shankar Prasad said it is a historic day when a landmark judgment has been delivered upholding the majesty of the judicial system of India.

LUCKNOW, NOV 9 (PTI): Amid tight security measures in place, Uttar Pradesh remained peaceful following the Supreme Court judgement in the Ayodhya land title dispute case, a senior police officer said here on Saturday. The apex court cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple at the disputed site, and directed the Centre to allot a 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque. “There is no report of any untoward incident from anywhere in the state. We are keeping a close watch (on the law & order situation). Our team is on job,” UP Director General of Police O P Singh told PTI. He said that for the first time an Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) has been set up here to keep an eye on reports emerging from the media, social media and other sources before and

the mosque will analyse the judgment based on which a decision will be taken for future course of action, including challenging the judgment,” Jilani said. Outlining the reason for the reservations, Jilani said the court upheld the submissions that namaz was offered in the inner courtyard of the premises till 1949. Ironically, it clubbed the premises of inner and the outer courtyards as composite land for giving it for the temple, he added. Moreover, contrary to the submission by the temple side, the court observed that the Muslims had never abandoned the claim on the premises of the inner court-

yard even though namaz was not offered after 1949 following installation of Lord Ram’s idol, he added. There is no question of accepting the offer of fiveacre land, said Jilani. He said the court upholding the Muslim side’s submission that the mosque was constructed not after demolition of any temple was among other ironies marking the judgment. This allowed scope for challenging the verdict, first in the form of a review petition and then in the form of a curative petition, Jilani said. “The judgment will be termed questionable for all times to come,” said another leader at the conference.

NEW DELHI, NOV 9 (AGENCIES): The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, along with several other Muslim organisations, on Saturday expressed reservations against the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya, saying it could be challenged after the judgment was analysed. At a hurriedly-convened joint press conference by the AIMPLB and Muslim bodies after the verdict, they appealed to all sections of society to maintain calm.

NEW DELHI, NOV 9 (PTI): Union ministers lauded the judgement of the Supreme Court on Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit and said it would further strengthen the country’s social fabric. In a unanimous verdict, the Supreme Court on Saturday paved the way for the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya and directed the Centre to constitute a trust within three months to build the temple. Home Minister Amit Shah welcomed the Supreme Court judgement, saying the order will prove to be a milestone and further strengthen India’s unity and integrity. In a series of tweets, Shah appealed to all communities and religions to accept the decision of the apex court with ease and remain committed to ‘Ek Bharat-Shreshtha Bharat’ (one India, great India). “I am confident that this landmark judgment given by the Supreme Court will prove to be a milestone in itself.

At the heart of the matter


s much as there has been so much talked or preached about reconciliation, especially in the context of painful events or incidents that had taken place during the decades-old conflict in Naga areas; the issue needs to be understood in its entirety. Today, as Nagas stand at the threshold of an imminent agreement for solution to the protracted Naga political issue and open a new chapter that would close the chapter on all forms of violence; there is also a need to repair burned bridges. The repair work can be achieved through reconciliation for healing. Reconciliation is about beginning a new chapter by restoration of broken relationships. Reconciliation has to be preceded with acknowledging a wrong done. Some wrongly think that apology is good enough to begin the process. There are those who firmly believe that seeking forgiveness is the only genuine way to rebuild. These are like an oxymoronic paradox in the old saying ‘same difference.’ When we apologize, we are merely expressing regrets for a wrong done. On the other hand, when we ask for forgiveness it takes humility because we have to admit we’ve actually done something wrong and are sincere and serious about making amends to restore relationships. It’s why God uses forgiveness of sin to save, not sorrow. Apologizing is easy, asking for forgiveness is not. There is a world of difference between saying “I’m sorry,” and “I’m sorry. Will you please forgive me?”. When we merely apologize, we, in essence, pretend that nothing really happened. When we ask for forgiveness, we actually acknowledge we have genuinely done something wrong. When we apologise, it tends to be quick but it lacks understanding of the pain it caused to another. Therefore, asking for forgiveness is way different and way deeper than apologising . When we ask for forgiveness, not only do we acknowledge that we’ve caused hurt, but we also work to understand the pain it caused others , how it impacted them and are clear of what that experience was like for them. In the light of the approach by Naga groups in conflict, the word reconciliation appears to be subjective to how much and what was acceptable. An apology and seeking forgiveness can be found with how the Japanese and the Germans responded for inhuman atrocities they committed during World War 2. Japan continues to evade full responsibility by offering apologies to the victim nations. The Germans on the other hand, have described World War II a “German crime,” for which the country’s leaders asked “for forgiveness for Germany’s historical debt”. In the Naga context, several hundred families have been affected and their lives shattered. Nagas, particularly of erstwhile Naga Hills suffered untold atrocities at the hands of armed forces including police forces of other states during military operations in the dark period from the 50s till 70s. Later Nagas experienced their lowest when factional killings made children fatherless, wives husbandless and brought much bitterness. During World War 2, Japanese forces also brutalised Nagas and drove them to the side of the British. It was only a few years back that reconciliation took place when a Japanese church delegation came to Kohima in repenting for the past wrong and asked forgiveness from the Nagas. Reconciliation is biblical and calls for genuine repentance, seeking forgiveness from the victims and to recompense for their losses.

DailyDevotion Sacred Service

I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ… —Colossians 1:24 The Christian worker has to be a sacred “gobetween.” He must be so closely identified with his Lord and the reality of His redemption that Christ can continually bring His creating life through him. I am not referring to the strength of one individual’s personality being superimposed on another, but the real presence of Christ coming through every aspect of the worker’s life. When we preach the historical facts of the life and death of our Lord as they are conveyed in the New Testament, our words are made sacred. God uses these words, on the basis of His redemption, to create something in those who listen which otherwise could never have been created. If we simply preach the effects of redemption in the human life instead of the revealed, divine truth regarding Jesus Himself, the result is not new birth in those who listen. The result is a refined religious lifestyle, and the Spirit of God cannot witness to it because such preaching is in a realm other than His. We must make sure that we are living in such harmony with God that as we proclaim His truth He can create in others those things which He alone can do. When we say, “What a wonderful personality, what a fascinating person, and what wonderful insight!” then what opportunity does the gospel of God have through all of that? It cannot get through, because the attraction is to the messenger and not the message. If a person attracts through his personality, that becomes his appeal. If, however, he is identified with the Lord Himself, then the appeal becomes what Jesus Christ can do. The danger is to glory in men, yet Jesus says we are to lift up only Him (see John 12:32).

On board for a common goal Embracing market prices vital for India


e travel together on board to a destination. The same principle is not a postmortem but it stands alive always. It is rudimentary that the members of the house must sit down together and get its differences sorted out and dispute settled. There is a time for the family to hunt in different directions. But there is also a time for the members to return together, breathe together, formulate further strategy together and live together. The saying goes that ‘a tiger split two friendly bulls by throwing stone and devoured the two cows one by one’. The Bible warns against a divided house. The division of a house becomes deadly and chronic. Treatment must be from within and not from outside. If the Nagas are one family, why is it difficult for us to come together and sit together to talk out? If the Naga solution is a common goal, why is it difficult to agree with each other on a modality? It is like a playing ground with players playing in different positions for a trophy which is for all players. To India, Ayodhya temple issue is more important than Indo-Naga solution. Naga national issue does not appear in Indian top headlines. We quarrel not knowing how significant or insignificant we are. Nagas should seriously learn who we are, unite together, set the house in order and live together. Options for Peaceful Solution We all pray a prayer of ‘God’s will be done’ but we speak out from human hearts and motivated perspective when we loose our tongues. We speak ‘honorable solution’ but we poison what we talk by blaming others. If we speak and do what we pray for, our Naga issue should have been over by now in the hand of the sovereign God. Can we expect Naga political solution to drop down from Heaven or from somewhere? God has given us a heart to make right decision. The journey began long back and it is time to cross the Red Sea. In this crucial moment we can contemplate and walk though a few models or options. Option One: As Nagas, the desire


he Word become flesh and dwelt among us ... full of grace and truth (John 1:14). And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard (Rom 10:14). Faith comes by hearing the word of God. Thus Bible translation, production and distribution is required so that every person will read and hear God’s word in his/her own heart language. A brief history of Bible Society The first organization called Bible Society was formed on 8th November 1779 by George Cussons and John Davies, Lay Wesleyan Methodist to distribute Bibles to British soldiers and seamen because they believe in the power of the word of God. The French Bible Society was instituted in 1792 and came to end in 1803 due to Napoleonic Revolution. The leftover fund was given to the production of Bible in Welsh. However, Bible was very expensive. Apparently, Bibles were available only in the hands of clergy men and in the hands of a few rich people, who could purchase it for family devotion. During this time, God used a young girl Mary Jones, whose determination to have Bible in her own language, Welsh led

of the Naga people is ‘the negotiators or political architects’ coming together, burying the difference, sitting down together, consolidating opinion together, and agreeing on a modality. Is it hard to do this as Christians? It is the healthiest model despite petty differences? The Nagas will congratulate such an upfront resolution. Option Two: Nagas respect and listen to our elders. The Nagas will listen to them and yield to what sublime advice and wisdom they give us. Can we listen to the voice of our elders as the voice of God in a time such as this? They are the people who can bell the neck. Option Three: Nagas are Christians. Christians must unite together under the name of Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church. Can the Nagas cooperate with the Body of churches and Christians and listen to what God will speak through the Church? Can we lay down our weapons of differences and small visions and expect what God will speak to us? Christian principle of a modality must be executed in “in the name of and for the sake of Jesus Christ”. The Church is called to rebuke and correct, and bring peace to the world. Option Four: Will Nagas continue and remain unchanged with our original political goal of sovereignty? Or, are we ready to accept anything of three dimension of high, mid or below? Must we come to a conclusion that God has a destiny destined for us? ‘There is a time for everything’ the Bible says. Is that ‘time’ now or yet to happen? Option five: Can we speculate that God should speak to us through some prophets concerning our political destiny like Isaiah or Ezekiel? But who are the prophets mathematically? Can there be a voice of harmony? And can there be a unanimous voice? The case with Nagas is spiritual, historical, national and global issue. We must submit to the sovereign will of God who holds the keys of lasting peace and solution. God bless Nagaland! Rev. Dr. Phuveyi Dozo, Naga United Village, Dimapur


ssues that sectors such as residential real estate, credit markets and power generation amongst others have faced in India can be viewed through the lens of the "inability to generate a market-clearing price". Fundamentally, both price discovery and price transparency for the sectors were lacking, which made it difficult for participants to create an equilibrium around demand and supply. For sure, at a fundamental level, issues such as creating excessive housing inventory, lending excessively to poor credit names and creating infrastructure assets such as power plants that do not have adequate demand are all symbolic of the core issue. The inability of the ecosystem to signal to the developer, lender and investor that there is lack of fundamental demand for the asset being created and, therefore, the future does not bode well for the asset under consideration is at the heart of the current predicament facing the Indian economy. Hence, while the real estate bailout fund announced by the finance ministry is a good step within the multi-pronged approach required to resolve the myriad issues around residential real estate in India, a sharp policy focus on ensuring that market-price discovery and transparency improve in the future is critical. Primarily, market-clearing prices that can both clear inventory as well as ensure that excess supply is limited are required. Additionally, it is essential to realise how vital the linkages between the various markets are. The credit quality of the real estate developer, the quality of the actual project that they are developing, the demandsupply dynamics in the local

to the formation of Bible Society. She earned money by selling vegetables, eggs, honey, woollen socks, caps, etc for six years. In 1800 at the age of sixteen, she walked 26 miles (42 km) from her countryside home over mountainous terrain on barefoot to buy a copy of Bible from Thomas Charles at Bala. Thomas Charles told her that all the copies which he had received were sold out. She stayed in Thomas Charles house till the arrival of new Bibles. He gave her three copies of Welsh Bible at the price of one. The visit of Mary Jones inspired Thomas Charles to propose to a group of Christian leaders who were associated with the Religious Tract Society to address the problem of lack of affordable Bibles in Wales. Then a man by name Rev. Joseph Hughes asked question, “if for Wales, why not for the kingdom? And if for the kingdom, why not for the world? Subsequently, the British and Foreign Bible Society was founded on 7th March 1804. The Bible Society of India (BSI) The British and Foreign Bible Society extended its branch to India. On 21st February 1811, the “Calcutta Auxiliary Bible Society”

was inaugurated. Gradually, they extended its Branches to Bombay (1813), Madras (1820), Agra (1845), Lahore (1829), Bangalore (1875), Allahabad (1914). In November 1944 Bible Society of India (BSI) was inaugurated as a centralized body in order to effectively carry out the ministry. Today, BSI has its Head Quarter in Bangaluru, Karnataka. It has 16 Auxiliaries and one Corresponding Office at Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Island. There is a Translation Centre for North East India in Shillong. BSI is a non-denominational and non- profitable organization. United Bible Societies The coordination of National Bible Societies became a necessity. Hence, the United Bible Societies (UBS) was formed on 9th May 1946 at Heyward, England. Today, under UBS there are 148 National Bible Societies supported by 70 Christian denominations. It is operating in 200 countries around the world. BSI is a member of UBS and one of the oldest Bible Societies in the World. Dimapur Auxiliary The Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) felt the need of having BSI Auxiliary in Dimapur for

Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland and part of Assam in order to translate the word of God into their languages. Thus, on 14th June 1979 a memorandum was submitted to BSI, Bangalore for opening of Auxiliary. Subsequently, Associate Auxiliary was inaugurated on 6th November 1985 at Dimapur Lotha Baptist Church. In the following year a full-flagged Auxiliary was granted on 23rd November 1986. Dimapur Auxiliary is working with Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland and Karbi District of Assam covering 111 tribes. Bible Sunday In 1545 AD, Arch Bishop of Canterbury, England, Thomas Cronli declared first Sunday of December as Bible Sunday. He appealed to all the churches to observe Bible Sunday with prayers and offering, so that the money collected can be used for Bible Translation, production and distribution. Today, this had become global programme. The Bible Societies around the world could carry out its ministry because of Bible Sunday collection. This day is also a day of thanksgiving to God for providing his word to us. Ministry In India there are more

Plastic ban and its alternative


lot of people do not know but there are several states that have imposed ban on plastic bags. Different states came up with different laws at varying point of time. However, what is pitiable is the fact that ever since ban on plastic bags were introduced; most shopping stores ended up making these bags chargeable. Their use didn’t decline just that, companies were now making money out of it. This brings us to the question as to what is

real estate market and the macro-economic factors such as GDP and income growth are all contributing factors. While issues around macro-factors mentioned above are for the various stakeholders to figure out, we also need to realise the importance of developing the supporting credit markets and transmission mechanisms to boost sectors such as real estate and avoid the current issues in the future. A market mechanism that effectively communicates the gradual inability of a developer to service interest payments on a loan will guarantee that lenders do not continue to lend to such a developer. And, such a developer will also be less likely to set-up projects where the money from both homebuyers and lenders such as banks gets stuck. Additional regulations, such as RERA, will ensure that there is more transparency while implementing the various individual projects. The above inter-linkages are an example of the intricacies within the system. For instance, assuming two similar-sized developers face identical macro-demand for real estate, but one operates in a local market that is more distressed for real estate is a situation in which the market pricing mechanism must be able to price in this piece of information. A gradual decline in the capacity of the developer in the weaker market to service the debt and a fall in asset prices must be relayed to stakeholders to ensure that decisions made by lenders, buyers and other market participants are reflective of the information set available. While price discovery and transparency are vital components of a well-functioning market, the capacity of market

to be done as far as ban on plastic bags is concerned. Keeping in mind the sad state of the environment and the kind of risk we have imposed, the right measures need to be taken at the earliest. First of all, people need to be educated about why they should steer away from the use of plastic. It is only when people truly understand as to how the use of plastic ends up creating damage to the environment which may jeopardize their life or those of the future

generation, they may be inclined to do their bit and follow the ban on plastic bags seriously. Fur ther, when the states impose ban on plastic bags, it is important to offer other recycled products and paper bags. It is also important not to have them chargeable because no one likes to pay unnecessarily. So, this is a grave situation and the right actions must be taken before we do more damage than what we can mitigate. (WisdomPost & Sophia)

participants to set prices in reaction to demand-supply dynamics is no less so. It is crucial that the government carefully addresses sectors where it has implemented price floors and caps. While in specific areas, such as agriculture, support prices are needed, for others, it is essential to allow the market to set prices. On the other hand, the government must ensure a competitive environment. For instance, in the healthcare market, if a business is procuring the inputs of production at market rates, then price caps can significantly hamper the long-term financial viability of the sector. Additionally, the classic downward spiral problem may crop up. Price caps lead to financially unviable businesses, thereby creating bad debt and significantly reducing the ability of companies to invest in research and development that results in mediocre products and services for the end-user. The impact of price caps on sectors through effectively what is "rent-control" can create negative implications as discussed above such that reversing the trends can be an enormous task. Additionally, once industries lose global competitiveness, it is challenging to rejig and revive them. In this connection, issues such as oligopolistic behaviour by firms are of great importance. However, instead of price caps, perhaps institutions such as the Competition Commission of India are better equipped to ensure fair markets. In summary, India must embrace market prices in generating economic and financial value. Lessons from the past suggest that creating market mechanisms that help direct the flow of capital into productive uses is imperative. Taponeel Mukherjee (IANS)

than 19,500 spoken languages in India. Out of which Bible Society of India has translated the word of God into 75 languages only (full Bible). At present there are 89 live projects, out of which 52 projects are in North East India. There are tremendous challenges and tasks to be accomplished. The United Bible Societies and the Bible Society of India aim to reach every individual with the Bible in his/her understandable language. For the word of God is living and active. It is the power of God. It cuts and goes into the innermost being where no surgeon’s scalpel can go (Heb. 4:12)). Nothing can remain untouched by the word of God. It brings life. It directs people to the right path. It encourages people to serve one another and comfort the grief. It tells people of their responsibilities toward others, family members, neighbours, society, creation and nations. It is the most powerful weapon in the world. Thus the Bible Society of India has been translating the word of God into the heart languages of different groups of people. It prints Bible into different formats and supply to churches. It does revision of the existing Bibles in order to bring the language up-to date

and also to make the Bible error free. Conclusion BSI spends a huge amount of money in order to give the word of God to all people. It bears the expenses while doing translation by paying the salary of translators. It takes care of transportation charges and gives a huge subsidy. Thus the believers get the Bibles at affordable price. This is possible with the support of individual believers and churches. We are thankful to those generously support the ministry as patrons, life time members, regular donors and well wishers. Any individual, who confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour can become supporter of BSI ministry. In order to help different language groups to get the Bible, it is the responsibility of every individual believer to pray and give offering on Bible Sunday, which falls on 1st Sunday December every year. BSI is a humble servant of God serving the churches in translation, production and supplying the Bible with the help received from believers and churches. Pray and give for this noble ministry of God. Rev. Dr. Yiepetso Wezah, Auxiliary Secretary, BSI, Dimapur Auxiliary

What are the streetlights for?

Winter has already set in and Dimapur plunges into darkness by 5.00 PM. By 8.00 PM there are barely any soul left on the street and the town wears a deserted look. It looks like as if the town is taken out straight from the Hollywood zombie movie. Dimapur is considered as the commercial hub and more so a city and it is pertinent for a city to have streetlights all over the town which is actually working! But except for one or two, none of the streetlights in Dimapur are functional. This gives rise to countless anti-social elements and they are more emboldened under the garb of darkness. The Municipal Council, Urban Development and the District administration should take up this matter with utmost priority and ensure its citizens a safe place so that they can go out without an itoa of fear even at night.

BJP not staking claim to form Kartarpur Corridor: PM thanks Pak PM Imran Why Maha government?, asks Sena

NNPGs appeal to all Naga groups for unconditional unity be used in vain again and again to promote falsehood and discord. Reminding that NNPGs stood for Naga unity without any condition, WC said NNPGs will not set any condition to any individual or group. It said Nagas have seen and heard enough of the slogan “The Door Is Open”, which has scattered the Nagas more rather than regrouping in the past. WC said the greatest problem among Naga political groups that has, time and again, thwarted genuine reconciliation and unity was the seemingly unending, unacceptable narrative of a single group and their obsessive desire to suppress the Nagas through the barrel of a gun and a propaganda machine that oscillates between sustained madness and irrational sense of nationalism. Therefore, WC said it was time to use God’s mighty name to genuinely promote love, peace and understanding based on truth and reality of our situation. N o n e t h e l e s s, WC said NNPGs was sincerely committed to seat across for an early Naga solution without any pre condition. This was the reason why all the seven different political groups could come together as “one Naga, for one solution” as it was the only ultimate for the bright future of the younger generation, WC asserted.

earth as mother”, he said. “Only Guru Nanak’s teachings could show us the path to move ahead when there is exploitation of nature, leading to environmental problem and pollution,” he said. The prime minister also referred to various ongoing Sikhism-related work across the world. “I am grateful to UNESCO for its help in translation of Guru Nanak’s Gurbani in different languages,” he said, adding a university in Britain has set up a chair after Guru Nanak’s name. Similar efforts are being made in Canada, he said, adding an interfaith university is being set up in Amritsar too, while Sultanpur Lodhi is being developed as a heritage town. He also referred to the Indian Railways plan to link places, concerned with Guru Nanak’s life, by a special weekly train. The Centre government has worked on improving rail and air connectivity among religious places of Sikhs, including Akal Takhat, Damdama Sahib, Kesgarh Sahib, Patna Sahib and Huzoor Sahib, he said.

MUMBAI, NOV 9 (PTI): The Shiv Sena on Saturday needled its warring ally BJP which has failed to stake claim to form a government in Maharashtra, apparently due to lack of numbers, even a fortnight after the assembly poll verdict. The Sena and the BJP are locked in a bitter dispute over sharing of chief ministership in new government. The dispute took turn for worse on Friday with caretaker chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray criticising each other of the issue of rotational chief ministership. “In Goa and Manipur, the BJP had shoved away single largest parties and formed governments. It is an open secret that this was done with the active cooperation of governors. But in Maharashtra, despite being the single largest party, the BJP is not staking a claim,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece “Saamana”. The edit once again appealed for formation of a government at the earliest. Term of the current

Uddhav Thackeray (PTI)

Legislative Assembly of Maharashtra ends on November 9. “The state govenor can invite the BJP, by virtue of it being the single largest party, to form a government, and the BJP shouldn’t lose such opportunity,” it said. “Saamana” also criticised the BJP for claiming that it will form a coalition government with the Sena. “....What about the decisions taken regarding sharing of power when the alliance was formalised? The BJP continues to say no assurances were given over sharing of power,” the Sena said.

The Sena once again targetted the BJP for “not honouring” the “commitment” over sharing of the chief minister’s post and ministerial portfolios. “Without Shiv Sena there will be no government in state, but you (BJP) refuse to honour the commitments. What kind of politics is this. We don’t want to get involved in such kind of muddy politics,” it said. Fadnavis on Friday resigned as chief minister blaming the Sena for rebuffing all attempts to form alliance government. He had rejected the Sena’s claims that the BJP had agreed to share the chief minister’s post with the Uddhav Thackeray-led party in the event of both the parties coming to power again. However, Thackeray countered Fadnavis, saying such an arrangement was agreed by BJP chief Amit Shah ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. The Sena (56) and the BJP (105) together won 161 seats in recent assembly polls in the 288-member House which is way above the halfway mark.

The very severe cyclonic storm ‘Bulbul’ over the Bay of Bengal is likely to make landfall between West Bengal- Bangladesh coasts by late Saturday evening or night, bringing in its wake very heavy rain and gale wind of up to 135 kmph along the coastline, the MeT department said here. With the weatherman apprehending that the severity of ‘Bulbul’ will cause damage to kutcha houses, roads, communication and power lines along its path in the coastal and adjoining districts of West Bengal, the state government has put in place measures to tackle the

evolving situation. ‘Bulbul’, which was centered 190 km southsouthwest of Sagar Islands at 5.30 am on Saturday, is likely to weaken gradually

(From p-1) While recalling the great Mahatma Gandhi’s, the father of the nation, immortal lines in 1947 to Naga the delegation “... Nagas have every right to self determine their future...,” WC however said that it was not a signed document, yet Nagas treasure it. Asserting that its political stand was clear, WC said Nagas can trust the preamble signed between government of India and NNPGs on November 17, 2017 where “our aspiration is clearly redefined in this historic document.” “As simple as it sounds, no nation on earth can say Nagas do not have unique history and situation. Does this recognition assures or guarantees our self determination? No. The Framework Agreement of NSCN (I-M) simply recognises our past history,” WC stated. Be it WC or NSCN (I-M), it said no one should try to fool the Nagas as Nagas have grasped reality. High sounding rhetorical statements do not turn lies into truth, WC stated. WC said, issuing a statement at this point of time, urging Naga groups to join NSCN (I-M) under the FA, was a tragedy. WC said it certainly did not sound like an inspiration from God Almighty, as God in Heaven was omnipresent, ever sustaining and merciful. However, it said His Holy name cannot

gratitude to the Punjab government, SGPC and all the workers who were involved in building this Corridor,” the prime minister said. The Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, the apex religious body of the Sikhs also honoured the prime minister with ‘Kaumi Sewa Award’ on the occasion. “The SGPC bestowed me with Kaumi Sewa award, which I dedicate at the feet of Guru Nanak Dev,” he said. “Guru Nanak is not a legacy of Sikhs alone, but an inspiration for the entire humanity,” said the prime minister, adding, “He is not only a Guru, but a thought.” “When Guru Nanak

Dev set out on his ‘udasis’ or long travels from Sultanpur Lodhi, who knew what changes they would usher?” he said. The prime minister said the Guru himself had proclaimed that the purpose of his ‘yatras’, were to “pull the society out of injustice, darkness and inequalities”. He gave message of unity and brotherhood, said Modi, adding he also gave society the gift of “an economic system, based on truth, honesty and selfrespect”. “Guru Nanak Dev taught us that when development is undertaken with truth and honesty, it leads to the opening up of paths of progress and prosperity,” said Modi. He taught us that the wealth would come and go, but true values would always remain intact, the prime minister added. “He also taught us that when we work sticking to our values, it gives permanent prosperity,” he said. The prime minister also touched upon the final years of Guru Nanak’s life in Kartarpur. Gur u Nanak also taught us to consider “air as Guru, speech as father and

The opening of the corridor and the integrated check post would bring “double happiness” to the people, he added. “I feel blessed that I am dedicating the Kartarpur corridor to the country. At the moment, I am getting the same feeling which you get at the time of doing Kar Sewa (religious service)”, he said. This corridor and Integrated Check Post will serve thousands of devotees each day, and take them to Gurudwara Darbar Sahib, he said. The prime minister also congratulated the countrymen and Sikhs across the world, while inaugurating the corridor. He also flagged off the first batch of over 500 Indian pilgrims who will travel to the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province through the Kartarpur corridor, thrown open days ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev on November 12. “Paying obeisance at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib will become easier now due to the corridor.

DERA BABA NANAK (GURDASPUR), NOV 9 (PTI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday thanked his Pakistan counterpart Imran Khan for appreciating India’s sentiment on the issue of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor. The corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan, the final resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev, to the Dera Baba Nanak shrine here. “I thank Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan Niazi. He understood India’s feelings on the Kartarpur corridor issue, gave respect (to it) and, worked keeping in view those feelings,” the prime minister told a gathering at the BSF camp in Shikhaar Masiahan, about eight kilometres from the Dera Baba Nanak gurdwara. The prime minister also thanked the Pakistani workers involved in building the corridor. “I also want to thank the workers of Pakistan who worked at a fast pace to help in building the corridor on their side,” he said. Donning a saffron turban on the occasion, PM Modi said he felt blessed to be on the holy land here to

New Delhi, Nov 9 (Agencies): Three Chinese banks are suing Anil Ambani in a London court for failing to pay back $680 million in defaulted loans. The Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd, China Development Bank and the Export-Import Bank of China agreed to loan $925.2 million to his firm Reliance Communications Ltd in 2012 on a condition that he provide a personal guarantee, ICBC’s lawyer Bankim Thanki told the court. Some repayments were made by the wireless carrier but in February 2017, it defaulted on its payment obligations. The embattled Indian tycoon says that while he agreed to give a non-binding “personal comfort letter,” he never gave a guarantee tied to his personal assets - an “extraordinary potential personal liability.” He’s the brother of Mukesh Ambani, who’s worth $56 billion and is the wealthiest man in Asia and 14th richest in the world. Anil, on the other hand, has seen his personal fortune dwindle over recent years, losing his billionaire status. ICBC “failed and continues to fail, to distinguish between Mr. Ambani on the one hand and the company to whom the loans were be-

Imran Khan inaugurates Kartarpur Corridor

Pakistan PM Imran Khan gestures after inaugurating the Kartarpur corridor. (AFP)

KARTARPUR, NOV 9 (IANS): Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday inaugurated the much-awaited Kartarpur Corridor in Punjab province, paving the way for thousands of Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit the highly revered Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara. The inauguration comes ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism, on November 12. “Want to congratulate those worked on the temple,” Geo News quoted Khan as saying while ddressing the inauguration ceremony here. “I did not know my government was so efficient. Want to congratulate them again for completing the complex in record time.” Khan arrived at the corridor inauguration ceremony using the shuttle service being used by pilgrims. He was accompanied by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Special

Assistant on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan, Senator Javed Khan, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Zulfi Bukhari and other officials. The shrine is where Guru Nanak Dev spent 18 years of his life and is his final resting place. Meanwhile, former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh led the first delegation of Sikh pilgrims as they crossed into Pakistan through the Kartarpur Corridor. Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh was also part of the ‘jatha’ (caravan). “I hope India and Pakistan relations improve enormously as a result of this beginning,” Manmohan Singh told PTV as he walked towards the Pakistan side, terming the occasion a “big moment”. Amarinder Singh told Dawn news they were all happy because it had been a desire of Sikhs to visit their religious sites in Pakistan for 70 years. “This is a beginning, I hope it’s going to continue and many

Ex-Brazilian President Lula released from prison

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on his release from jail.

BRASILIA, NOV 9 (IANS): Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was freed from prison where he as held since April 2018, after a Supreme Court ruling that paved the way for his release. Lula’s defence team on Friday morning had requested that he be freed after the court, in a 6-5 decision on Thursday night, ruled that defendants convicted of crimes cannot be imprisoned until they have exhausted all of their appeals, reports Efe news. Lula was one of the some 5,000 inmates who could benefit from the high court’s decision. Danilo Pereira Jr., a criminal court judge in Curitiba, analyzed the petition and authorized the former head of state’s release. In April 2018, the former President began serving a sentence of more than 12 years (later reduced to eight years and 10 months) for allegedly accepting bribes from Brazilian construction company OAS, one of the companies embroiled in a $2 billion corruption scandal at state oil company Petrobras. He had been convicted in July 2017 of accepting bribes from OAS in the form of renovations to a seaside condo in Sao Paolo state that the former two-term President never owned or occupied. K




The case was based largely on plea-bargained testimony from people already convicted of corruption offences. On January 24, 2018, an appeals court voted unanimously to uphold that earlier verdict and increase Lula’s prison sentence to 12 years and one month. Two months later, that same court rejected his appeal of its own earlier decision. Then on April 4, 2018, in an earlier review of the same legal question tackled on Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled that Lula could be imprisoned while continuing to appeal his corruption conviction. The former head of state also was convicted by federal Judge Gabriela Hardt in another corruption case in February of this year and sentenced to 12 years and 11 months behind bars. In that second case, the former President was found to have illegally benefited from property renovations carried out by construction companies that received inflated contracts from Petrobras during Lula’s 20032011 tenure. Again, Lula never owned the property in question. His incarceration led to his being barred from the 2018 presidential election amid polls showing that he would have won by a wide margin.

more gurdwaras are going to be allowed,” he added. Former Indian cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu was also in attendance at the inauguration ceremony and thanked Khan for taking the bold step to build the Kartarpur Corridor “without looking at gains or losses”. Before seeing off the first group of pilgrims from India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed members of the Sikh community and hailed the opening of the corridor. “I also thank Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan for understanding India’s wishes and turning Kartarpur into reality,” Modi said in his speech. Meanwhile, members of the Sikh community on Saturday continued to arrive from all over the world, according to Geo News. About 8,000-10,000 pilgrims are expected to arrive from around the world to mark Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary.


Thousands to mourn Hong Kong student’s death HONG KONG, NOV 9 (IANS): Thousands were to join a rally in Hong Kong on Saturday night to mourn a 22-year-old university student who died due to a severe brain injury he sustained when he fell from a car park near an area of confrontation between anti-government protesters and police. Called “Heaven bless the Martyrs”, the prayer and memorial service in Admiralty, organised by activist Ventus Lau Winghong with the involvement of the Good Neighbour North District Church, has been approved by police, reports the South China Morning Post. Chow Tsz-lok, a second-year computer science undergraduate at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), died on Friday morning after he reportedly fell from the third floor to the second floor of a car park in Tseung Kwan O on Sunday, while police carried out a dispersal operation nearby with rounds of tear gas fired. The exact circum-

stances of his fall remain unclear, but reports have said that he was trying to get away from tear gas. News of Chow’s death on Friday sparked grief and anger across Hong Kong, leading to HKUST facilities being vandalised, protests in various districts and the closure of MTR stations. Dozens of angry students at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology vandalised their President Wei Shyy’s residence, sprayed slogans on its front door, and placed posters on its outer walls. They then went to a campus Starbucks outlet and damaged plates, cups and fridges in the cafe, before pushing over chairs and tables and spraying slogans on walls. A Bank of China branch on the campus was also damaged. Sunday’s clash in Tseung Kwan O, which extended into the following day, was sparked by a group of people trying to disrupt a police officer’s wedding held in a hotel in the district.


Trump opposes public hearings during impeachment inquiry WASHINGTON, NOV 9 (IANS): US President Donald Trump has said that there should be no public hearings during the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry against him, and directed White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney not to appear before the committees investigating Trump’s phone call to Ukraine. “They shouldn’t be having public hearings. This is a hoax,” Trump said in a statement to the media on Friday before leaving on a trip to Georgia. That comment was in contrast to the stand usually taken by the President’s allies, who up to now have complained about the lack of transparency in the investigations behind closed doors conducted by committees of the lower house, Efe news reported The first televised testimonies are slated to begin on November 13. T h e c o m m i t t e e s, headed by the Democrats, are investigating whether Trump committed abuse of power by pressuring

the cyclone centre is about 130 kph, rising to 150 kph in gusts and squalls, according to the country’s weather department. The Bangladesh Meteorological Department has advised the maritime ports of Mongla and Payra to hoist ‘Great Danger Signal No. 10’. Low-lying areas of the coastal districts of Chattogram, Noakiiali, Laxmipur, Feni, Chandpur, Barguna, Bhola, Patuakhali, Barishal, Pirojpur, Jhalakathi, Bagerhat, Khulna, Satkhira and their offshore islands and

chars were likely to be inundated by storm surge of 5-7 feet high above normal astronomical tide. The government has predicted seven districts -- Khulna, Satkhira, Bagerhat, Barguna, Patuakhali, Pirojpur, Bhola -- to be most vulnerable to the effects of the storm and thus prepared the cyclone shelters in these districts for evacuation. Bdnews24 quoted State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Enamur Rahman as saying that “adequate measures” have been taken to tackle the storm.

the Ukrainian government into investigating one of his political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the business dealings of his son Hunter with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma. After almost a month of calling for greater transparency in the inquiry, the White House changed its strategy this week by prohibiting several of its officials from even testifying behind closed doors before the lower house committees. This Friday it was Mulvaney’s turn to testify, but his attorney waited until the last minute before his deposition was scheduled to start and then informed the members of Congress

that the Acting White House Chief of Staff was defying the subpoena and would not attend, in line with the “absolute immunity” principle for the President’s advisers. Trump later defended his decision to block Mulvaney’s appearance, and refused to speak about whether stopping witnesses from testifying could lead to a charge of “obstruction of Congress”. “I don’t want to give credibility to a corrupt witch hunt,” Trump said. The President added that he was “not concerned” about what has been discovered up to now in the transcripts of closed-door testimonies that the committees have published. Trump also said he wass thinking about revealing information from a first telephone call he had last April with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “I will give it if they (the Democrats) want it. I don’t like doing it because it’s such a bad precedent,” Trump said.

Kanye West confirms he’s B-Town hails SC decision on Ayodhya running for President in 2024



anye West has confirmed that he intends to run for President of the United States in the 2024 election. The rapper made a surprise appearance at the fifth annual Fast Company Innovation festival in New York yesterday (November 7), where he spoke with Yeezy footwear designer Steven Smith, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “When I run for President in 2024,” he said at the event, before being interrupted by laughter from the audience. “What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk. When you see headlines saying Kanye’s crazy – one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing, they got no opinion, they’re so scared!” Kanye also stated he’s considering changing his name to ‘Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West’. “When people say

it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is… It will be on the license plate,” he said. “Martin Luther King didn’t get killed because he had a dream; he had something else he was gong to talk about,” he continued. “He talked about black empowerment, economic empowerment. When I did Forbes, I showed them a $890 million (£768m) receipt and they still didn’t say ‘billionaire’. They don’t want us to know that we can buy land; they don’t want us to have the 100 percent ownership [that] I have at Yeezy.” Meanwhile, West has also chalked up a new record as the first artist to monopolise the entire Top 10 on two Billboard Christian songs charts with tracks from ‘Jesus Is King’.

ollywood celebrities such as Farhan A k h t a r, Ta a p s e e Pannu and Madhur Bhandarkar on Saturday hailed the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Ayodhya case, and requested people to respect the court’s decision. The Supreme Court on Saturday directed the Centre to form a trust within three months, which will build a temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

Accept it with grace if it goes for you or against you. Our country needs to move on from this as one people. Jai Hind. Kunal Kapoor: This is a time for peace and healing.

Australia level Fed Cup final against France

Australia’s Ashleigh Barty returns a shot to Italy’s Caroline Garcia during their Fed Cup final in Perth on Saturday.

MELBOURNE, Nov 9 (Agencies): Australia’s ever-dependable Ash Barty doled out the dreaded double-bagel to Caroline Garcia, levelling the Fed Cup final at 1-1 against France after the opening day’s singles in Perth on Saturday. On a day of scorch-

ing heat, France struck the early blow when Kristina Mladenovic thrashed Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1, 6-1, but the terrier-like Barty wrested back the momentum with her 6-0, 6-0 rout of Garcia, firing up a heaving crowd at Perth Arena. World number one Barty will return on Sun-

day for the reverse singles and doubles, if required, as Australia bid for their first Fed Cup title in 45 years. “I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect match. That’s probably the best tennis match I’ve ever played in my life,” a thrilled Barty said courtside after extending her unbeaten run

in Fed Cup singles to 10 successive matches. “What a place to do it, this is incredible.” Australia were wobbling after Tomljanovic’s tor rid Fed Cup debut match against Mladenovic, but 23-year-old Barty beamed as she strode onto the blue hardcourt cradling her niece in her arms and soaking up a huge ovation. That was the last display of tenderness the stocky French Open champion would produce until consoling Garcia with a hug at the net after scarcely 56 minutes of play. In between was a virtual highlight reel of winners, as Barty, fresh from her WTA Finals triumph in southern China, drew energy from the roaring terraces and drained Garcia of all confidence. Fans filed out happily but some will hope for a tighter contest on Sunday. The French number one, who beat Barty on clay in Rome early in the year, came out swinging against rookie Tomljanovic, who

was thrown into the cauldron by team captain Alicia Molik. With Fed Cup veteran Sam Stosur overlooked for the singles, Molik’s gamble backfired as Croatia-born Tomljanovic, who became eligible to represent Australia only a month ago, quickly crumbled under pressure. Mladenovic broke her early in a barrage of power hitting and wrapped up the first set in 38 minutes, delighting a rowdy pocket of blue-clad French fans. Tomljanovic’s meek serve wilted further in the second set as the freesw i n g i n g M l a d e n ov i c roared on to a victory that gave France hope of a third Fed Cup title and first since 2003. “That was a statement match,” Barty said of Mladenovic’s procession. “Kristina was in control and she was able to control the court a little bit, so I think the challenge for me tomorrow is to come out and try to take her out of her comfort zone.”

The manager said Arsenal would wait until Xhaka was in the right frame of mind to play for the club again but later indicated he could not be certain that would happen. “We need a player like Granit Xhaka. But also, I don’t know if he’s going to play again,” said Emery. “I don’t know if he is available in his mind to continue helping us and continuing defending the Arsenal shirt.” Asked about a possible transfer in the January window, the manager said he was not thinking about that because it was only November.

Nikhat to face Mary Kom in Olympics trial in December

SSP annual sports meet underway

Nikhat Zareen

Mary Kom

New Delhi, Nov 9 (Agencies): After a war of words last month, Nikhat Zareen is finally set to have a selection trial against six-time world champion, MC Mary Kom in the last week of December to decide India’s representation in the 51 kg category for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics qualifiers. As per a report by Times of India, the decision has been informed to Boxing Federation of India’s (BFI) president, Ajay Singh through his office staff on Friday. Both the boxers will also be notified soon. The decision was tak-

en after a meeting at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) headquarters in New Delhi on Thursday, which involved BFI office bearers, SAI officials including director-general Sandeep Pradhan, an official from Sports Ministry and the two foreign coaches, Raffaele Bergamasco and Santiago Nieva. According to sources, it’s learnt that the selection policy to pick the Indian contingent for Olympic qualifier, to be held in Wuhan, China from February 3, 2020, to February 14, 2020, was drafted after a unanimous decision, having the support of the

president and the office. “We have stuck to our rules. There won’t be any going back on it and everything is now clear, no confusion at all. The trial will preferably happen after the Indian Boxing League (IBL), which is scheduled from December 2 to 21, 2019,” the source told Times of India. The furore took place after Singh said that all the medal winners at the World Championships should automatically be nominated for Wuhan qualifiers, which effectively shut the door on Nikhat. The rule stated though, that only the gold and silver medallists will be selected for qualifiers and the bronze winners, namely Mary Kom and Lovlina Borgohain, will have to appear for trials. Lovlina will also now have to appear for a trial in the 69kg weight category. Because of this, the 23-year-old wrote to Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju demanding a “fair chance” to make it to the team back on October 17.

Tiri lunged in with a last-ditch tackle inside the box to stop the Fijian from shooting and this time referee Rahul Kumar Gupta pointed straight to the spot. The former Wellington Phoenix striker sent

Subrata Paul the wrong way to open the scoring. Tiri and Memo struggled to contain the striker and the latter brought him down once again inside the box to concede another penalty. Krishna delivered the goods from 12 yards for the second time and handed ATK an insurance goal in the 71st minute. In the 82nd minute, Jamshedpur earned a penalty at the other end when Anas struck his elbow to stop Castel inside the box and the latter pulled one back from the spot to rekindle Iriondo’s hopes. Jamshedpur started pouring men forward in

search of an equaliser which opened gaps at the back and ATK capitalised with a quick counter attack. Williams initiated the move with a diagonal ball towards Krishna. Subsequently, the 32-year old’s brilliant first touch set up Edu Garcia and the Spaniard chipped the ball over Paul’s head to score ATK’s third of the night. After handing Jamshedpur their first defeat of the season, ATK go top of the pile with nine points from four matches. The Red and Whites will return to action after the international break on November 24 against Odisha FC away from home.

Chelsea go second with 2-0 win over Crystal Palace Shooter Tejaswini books Olympic berth Lon d on , N ov 9 (Agencies): Chelsea secured a sixth straight Premier League win to move up to second as the in-form Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic struck to beat Crystal Palace 2-0. Abraham ended Palace's dogged defensive resistance with a simple finish from Willian's deft through ball seven minutes into the second half before Pulisic headed home a loose ball 11 minutes from time to seal all three points. Chelsea edge a point clear of Manchester City and to within five of leaders Liverpool, who host City in a highly-anticipated clash on Sunday. A 4-4 draw with Ajax on Tuesday took the tally of goals Chelsea's prior 18 games this season to 70 at an average of nearly four per game. However, the Blues free flowing football under Frank Lampard was met with a brick wall of a Palace defence for the first 45 minutes.

Christian Pulisic heads home Chelsea’s second goal to against Crystal Palace to seal a sixth successive Premier League win for Frank Lampard’s side.

Christian Pulisic had scored four goals in his last two Premier League games as the American begins to deliver on his £58 million price tag and only a fine save from Vicente Guaita denied the USA captain another strike early on. Thereafter, Chelsea

were largely restricted to efforts from free-kicks on the edge of the box before the break as Willian curled inches wide. Gary Cahill was making his return to Stamford Bridge after his seven years as a Chelsea player came to an end in the summer.

And Cahill reminded his former employers of why he won eight trophies for the club with a brilliant block to repel Willian's goal-bound effort in first half stoppage time. The Palace resistance was finally broken by one moment of genius from

Willian as Chelsea's captain for the day flicked the ball perfectly into Abraham's path to slot home his 11th goal of the season. Pulisic tested Guaita again with a rising drive shortly after that the Spaniard did brilliantly to tip over. Palace's problem this season has been scoring goals, but they missed a huge chance to snatch a point 20 minutes from time when James Tomkins headed wide from Luka Milivojevic's free-kick. Instead at the other end, Pulisic finally got the goal his performance deserved by following up after Michy Batshuayi's shot had been blocked to nod past a helpless Guaita. Chelsea host champions Manchester City on Saturday after the international break on November 23 while Palace will host leaders Liverpool on the same day. Match result Norwich 0 – 2 Watford
