DIMAPUR, NOV 6 (NPN): While there has been widespread appreciation of the “Operation Check Gate” against illegal and multiple collections in check gates in Dimapur launched by Public Action Committee (PAC) under the aegis of Naga Council Dimapur (NCD), the drive has angered Working Committee (WC), Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs), which has justified the collections for sustaining national workers. WC media cell said it was deeply disturbed at the “inconsiderate and remorseless” nature of PAC led by Vekhosayi Nyekha and Ghokheto Chophy, convener and co-convener respectively. WC said though the PAC drive may have been in the in the interest of all Naga people to check and control illegal and unauthorised collections by petty unions, organisations and associations which have become a menace to the people; it said the drive posed a threat to thousands of uniformed Naga Army personnel in various designated camps, units

and regional commands and duty-bound civilian national workers in regions and subregions “who survive on the day-to-day contribution of the Nagas and business community”. WC said it was a testing time for Nagas politically as the Government of India (GoI) had perfectly understood the Naga issue. However WC regretted that back home, PAC had, “in a bizarre move”, tightened its screws against it, cutting off day-to-day supply line and “threatening the very survival of those striving to ensure Nagas secure their identity, peace and respectable future”. WC said in the coming months, thousands of national workers would still depend on the “generosity and contribution of the business community in Dimapur and other centres”. Hence, considering the severity of the situation, WC demanded that the PAC convener and co-convener provide adequate food supply and financial requirements to sustain the Naga movement, till the agreement with government of India

was inked and transitional period began. WC also put on record how voluntary contributions and minimal taxation by national workers had been abolished completely at the behest of PAC and in addition, workers were being picked up from homes and those arrested were being put behind bars without any compunction. WC therefore asked Nyekha and Chophy to respond within four days as to why Naga national workers must not seek even minimal contribution from Nagas to sustain themselves, particularly at this juncture?. It maintained that the lives of thousand patriots could not be put in danger to fulfil ulterior motives of a few. “All WC, NNPGs designated camps and brigades, battalions and mobile camps all over Nagaland and outside are occupied fully by civil and military workers anticipating positive outcome from the Indo-Naga peace talks. It would be criminal to not provide basic daily necessities,” said WC. Further WC asked the

New CP seeks support for better Dimapur

Rothihu Tetseo

D I M A P U R , N OV 6 (NPN): Newly appointed commissioner of police (CP) Dimapur, Rothihu Tetseo, has sought support and cooperation from the tribal hohos, NGOs and civil society groups so they could work together as a team for the betterment of Dimapur. According to a DIPR report, the commissioner of police Wednesday organised a coordination

meeting with members of the Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) its tribal affiliates and NGOs in the conference Hall of commissioner police office Dimapur. At the meeting, Tetseo emphasised on the important role the NGOs and civil society groups could play in helping the police and district administration maintain a peaceful atmosphere. “Nagaland Police will do our best to give peace and security to the public of Dimapur and Nagaland in general, I am very positive and I will do my best,” Rothihu Tetseo said. Representatives from Naga Council Dimapur, tribal hohos, NGOs and civil society groups, who also spoke at the meeting, assured to extend their support and cooperation to the new commissioner of police Dimapur.

PAC leaders to take full responsibility should there be any unsavoury incident from hunger and starvation of national workers. WC also termed the PAC-led drive against collection of money as “antisolution and ill-motivated stratagem” to completely disorient and create chaos on the eve of political solution, It also noted that while the Naga people on one hand were optimistic and ready for solution hoping for a brighter future, PAC on the other , was trying to bring anarchy and sideline the much-awaited political solution with its action. WC said contribution of both Nyekha and Chophy’s parents or lack of it to Naga political movement was also under scrutiny because their policy reflected an “inherited ill-motive” against the movement. It said the duo must not invite the stigma of having failed the Nagas at a crucial time as history did not forget individuals or their children who had treated Naga freedom fighters with contempt, the committee added.

Public hearing for Trump impeachment to begin next week WASHINGTON, NOV 6 (AGENCIES): The US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee will kick off a series of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump next week, the panel’s Democratic chairman said on Wednesday. William Taylor, the top US diplomat in Ukraine, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent will testify on November 13, while former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch will appear on November 15. All three diplomats have raised alarm bells about the release of US security aid to Ukraine being made contingent on Kiev publicly declaring it would carry out politically motivated investigations that Trump, a Republican, had demanded. Televised public hearings featuring US officials testifying in Congress about alleged wrongdoing by Trump could crowd out other issues like the economy and immigration as voters turn their minds to the November 2020 election.

Bank accounts in Dimapur opened and sold to conmen Staff Reporter

DIMAPUR, NOV 6 (NPN): Many bank accounts opened in Dimapur have been found to be used as conduits for siphoning off money from unsuspecting victims and investigation revealed that most of the account holders are local women from Dimapur who have been lured by conmen operating mostly from New Delhi. The matter came to light after scores of victims reported that they were duped into depositing huge sums of money into these accounts and which were found to have been opened in Dimapur. This was revealed to Nagaland Post by Bank of Baroda Bank Nyamo Lotha Road branch chief manager Nancy Zarzohlu. The housewives used to be approached by the glib talking conmen mainly from north India to open bank accounts and then “sell them” on payment of Rs.15,000 deposited in their accounts. After the Personal Identify Number (PIN) was generated through the reg-

istered mobile number provided in the bank application form, the conmen then destroyed the SIM card. Nancy said that there was a strong suspicion that these mobile numbers were given at the behest of the touts. She revealed that the conmen employed telecallers to ensnare unsuspecting victims to deposit huge amounts in these accounts on promises of attractive schemes including commission for job placements. When FIRs were registered by victims from different parts of India, upon further investigation, it was found that many of the accounts belonged to housewives in Dimapur. When this reporter rummaged through police FIR files at Bank of Baroda, it was observed that over 80% of fraud accounts were that of local housewives and the amount deposited in all accounts was Rs 15,000 each. The chief manager BoB also showed this reporter account activity of the fraud accounts, which showed that once a deal was stuck with a “prospec-

tive customer”, the conmen operating from New Deldhi, constantly checked the account balance and on when money is deposited, it was immediately withdrawn. If the fraud was reported to the bank, it used to be immediately frozen. The CM of BoB also said such cases were reported in the past but that from 2017 till 2019, there was a spike. She said five such cases on an average were reported at Bank of Baroda Nyamo Lotha Road branch every month. She said there were 34 banks in Dimapur and they also dealt with such cases regularly. Nancy also advised customers to approach the bank in case they were suspicious of any financial dealing/offer and to remain vigilant when glib talking operators approached them with tempting cash bonanzas. Another bank official also cautioned public against falling prey to highly intelligent frauds operating accounts in FaceBook. Many have been duped with offers of marriage or promises of huge sum of money.

Now, antacids must carry ‘kidney injury’ warning NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (AGENCIES): In a bid to promote patient safety, widely-sold antacids (antiacidity pills) will hereon need to carry a side-effect warning of ‘acute kidney injury” as part of their package insert leaflets, a Times of India report stated.

NPGN/NNC(N/A) reacts

D I M PA U R : N P G N / NNC(N/A) has questioned as to how the May 13, 2019 tatar hoho meeting was held to terminate its president T. Ovung when the national tatar hoho of NPGN/NNC (N/A) was dissolved on May 30, 2019 and president’s rule imposed due to the alleged corruptions committed by former general secretary Hozheto Chophy. In a press note, NPGN/ NNC(N/A) said the claim made by Chophy was baseless just to mislead the Nagas. NPGN/NNC(N/A) alleged that Chophy was ignorant of the yezhabo and did not pay heed to the government order or President rule and went ahead with his own interest. This was why Chophy was impeached and removed from NPGN/NNC(N/A), it added. However, he claims himself to be the general secre-

tary of NPGN/NNC(N/A), when he is now only a mere head GB of Zeheshe village, it said. On Naga peace talk, NPGN/NNC(N/A) said Chopy had never informed Ovung when WC NNPGs had to go to Delhi since he was being “selfish” and did not want the name of the president to be known by the people. Even after coming from Delhi, it said the president was never consulted or highlighted about the outcome. The group claimed that Chopy several trip to Delhi for peace talk was at the cost of NPGN/NNC(N/A), but had never held meeting with the group to highlight about the talk. NPGN/NNC(N/A) alleged that the trip to Delhi may have been for business purpose after taking fund from finance kilonser and treasurer of NPGN/NNC(N/A).

Registration for people entering M’laya to be convenient Correspondent

SHILLONG, NOV 6: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Wednesday allayed fears and apprehensions about harassment which is likely to arise out of the Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security (Amendment) Ordinance (MRSSO), 2019 that requires registration of all non-residents, including tourists. He said the registration process would be designed keeping in mind the convenience of tourists. On Friday, the Meghalaya cabinet had approved the MRSSO, 2016 wherein persons who come to the state will have to register with the state

government for safety and security. This amendment has led to major concern among tourists planning to visit Meghalaya. “We intend to make this registration process a very simple process. There will be four to five to maximum six phase that a person need to enter and once he does that on a mobile phone, he will receive a QR code that’s the registration process,” Sangma said. Assuring that the system of registering may take an individual less than a minute, the Chief Minister said, “It is as simple as a person getting down in the airport and by the time he reaches his vehicle he re-

IMPHAL, Nov 6: Manipur Congress on Wednesday decided to cancel its upcoming programmes and to remain alert in view of the impending final peace accord of the Naga peace negotiation. A meeting of the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) convened on Wednesday passed the resolution and the same has been intimated to the AICC, said MPCC spokesperson N Mangi Singh. Addressing a news conference late afternoon at Imphal Congress Bhavan, the spokesperson said that the state Congress has decided not to take part in the proposed 10-day nationwide protest of the AICC against Modi government in the Centre this month. MPCC took the decision after prior consultation with the AICC leaders at New Delhi and considering the uneasy calm situation prevailing in the state. Mangi said that Congress leaders and workers were always on alert in case the Centre inks any accord that will hurt the interest of Manipur as the party has a firm stand to safeguard the territorial integrity of the state. While announcing the firm stand of the Congress for the integrity of Manipur, Mangi recalled the then O Ibobi led government’s firm stand against NSCN(I-M)’s leader Th Muivah planned to visit his native village in Manipur. The then Congress government under chief minister O Ibobi Singh stood firm even as the then Prime Minister instructed the state government to allow Muivah to enter Manipur, he said. The spokesperson then said that all the other party related activities and programmes will remain can-

I tanag a r , N ov 6 (IANS): Union Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) and Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, Pratap Chandra Sarangi on Tuesday called on Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig. B.D. Mishra (Retd.) at Raj Bhavan. During the meeting, they discussed self-employment and financial empowerment of youth through MSME and Fisheries and dairy development in Arunachal Pradesh. Mishra emphasised that special efforts must be made in capacity building of unemployed and underemployed youth of the State through MSME programmes. He said that through MSME schemes, the youth will have opportunities to become entrepreneurs and in turn, can provide jobs to others as well. The Governor, who along with First Lady of the State Neelam Misra, has been putting effort to revive and promote local Loin Loom weaving, a tradition of Arunachal Pradesh, requested the Union Minister to assist through his ministry in this endeavour. Mishra underscored that revitalising Loin loom weaving will boost the rural economy and also ensure economic and financial empowerment of womenfolk. The Governor highlighted the scope, which needs the Centre’s help for self-employment in the Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development in the State, while sharing his recent visit to Trout Hatchery, Shergaon. Mishra said that the people of the State, particularly the youth require guidance and capital assistance in the initial stage. “With proper direction and supervision, the people involved in fisheries and dairy development will be able to meet the requirement of the State, which at present depends on the supplies from outside the State,” he said. The Union Minister assured the Governor to provide all required assistance, both in fund allocation and technical help from his ministries. State Minister for Industries, Skill Development, Textile & Handicrafts and Trade & Commerce Tumke Bagra was also present in the meeting.

The refugees have expressed total dissatisfaction over the ongoing repatriation process. They have demanded an autonomous district council (ADC) for the Reang tribals, re-arrangement of the resettlement areas, liberty to each family to choose their area of resettlement, deployment of Central forces for the protection of the repatriated refugees and cash assistance, the resolution said. A Home Department official in Aizawl said the Union Home Ministry recently approved Rs 350 crore for the rehabilitation of the Reang tribals, after the completion of the ninth phase of the repatriation process.

The four-partite agreement had finalised a six-point benefit package for each refugee family. It included Rs 4 lakh financial aid, monthly allowance of Rs 5,000, Rs 1.5 lakh for building a house and free ration for two years.

According to authorities, in the latest phase of the repatriation process only 670 immigrants have returned to their villages so far. The Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Forum (MBDPF), the apex body of the refugees, has also threatened to loot the Kanchanpur government food godowns if the relief supplies are not started immediately. The MBDPF in separate letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and North Tripura District Magistrate Raval Hemendra Kumar urged them to resume the relief supplies. According to an official of the Relief Department, the stalled repatriation of refugees resumed on October 3 with the joint arrangements made by the Tripura and Mizoram governments. He said: “The repatriation process could not be carried out properly due to protests and obstacles put up by a section of refugees, mostly women.

Lawyers strike continues for third day

gates of Patiala, Saket district courts closed to litigants

Lawyers stage a protest against the police over the recent Tis Hazari Court clashes, at Saket Court Complex in New Delhi, Wednesday. (PTI)

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (PTI): Lawyers in all the six district courts here abstained from work for the third consecutive day on Wednesday, protesting against the clash between advocates and the police at the Tis Hazari Courts Complex on November 2, and denied access to litigants in some courts. The lawyers closed the main gates at Patiala House and Saket district courts and did not let litigants access the court premises as part of their protest. During the protest at Rohini district court, one lawyer took off his clothes and poured kerosene on his body in a bid to immolate himself, while another advocate climbed the rooftop

of one of the buildings in the premises. One of the protesting lawyers, who did not want to be named, said they will not resume the work till the time the policemen, who had allegedly fired at and lathi-charged advocates are not arrested. Jaiveer Singh Chauhan, secretary of Delhi Bar Association of Tis Hazari court however said: “Litigants have been allowed inside premises. We are protesting peacefully. They have been allowed inside court rooms too.” Police protests were triggered by two attacks on their colleagues, one on Monday outside Saket District Court and another last

Saturday at the Tis Hazari Courts Complex after a parking dispute between an on-duty policeman and a lawyer which led to at least 20 security personnel and several advocates being injured. Two FIRs were registered against unidentified persons, who were seen in a video hitting a uniformed policeman on a motorcycle with his elbow and slapping him outside the Saket court. As lawyers demonstrated outside district courts in the city, Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said any incident of violence involving lawyers, police and public will not be tolerated.

Incidents of violence will not be tolerated: BCI As lawyers demonstrated outside the district courts across the national capital, Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said on Wednesday that no incident of violence involving lawyers, the police and the public will be tolerated and action will be taken against the guilty. He also accused policemen of making provocative statements against judges and lawyers during their protests outside the police headquarters on Tuesday. Speaking to reporters inside the Supreme Court premises, Mishra said the BCI has taken serious note of all incidents of violence between lawyers and the police and all requisite action will be taken against those guilty. Police protests were

triggered by two attacks on their colleagues, one on Monday outside Saket District Court and another before that, on Saturday, at the Tis Hazari Courts Complex after a parking dispute between an on-duty policeman and a lawyer, which led to at least 20 security personnel and several advocates being injured. Two FIRs were registered against unidentified persons, who were seen in a video hitting a uniformed policeman on a motorcycle with his elbow and slapping him outside the Saket court. “Despite the matter being sub judice before the Delhi High Court, police have lodged two FIRs yesterday against the lawyers. They (police) are also before the high court and they could tell the court whatever they wanted to say.

“This lodging of FIR cannot be justified. If they are not happy with the high court order passed on Sunday then they can file the review petition or seek recall of the order,” Mishra said. The BCI Chairman also condemned targeting of media personnel covering the incident and said “targeting the media which is one of the strongest pillars of democracy is not justified”. He demanded that the policeman who had allegedly fired at a lawyer on his chest should be arrested as early as possible. Mishra refused to term as strike the absenteeism at work by lawyers and said it is a peaceful protest and once the policeman who had fired at the lawyer is arrested, the advocates will join judicial work.

Delhi Police chief briefs LG on police protest Delhi’s Lt Governor Anil Baijal held a meeting with Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and other top officers on Wednesday, a day after thousands of police personnel laid an unprecedented siege outside the Police Headquarters here. Sources said although it was a routine meeting on law and order, the Lieutenant Governor was also briefed about Tuesday’s massive public demonstration against as-

sault on police personnel by lawyers. In the meeting, Chief Secretary Vijay Kumar Dev and all joint commissioners of the Delhi Police were present, they said. After 11-hour standoff which began at 9 am, agitating police personnel called off their protest. On Tuesday, Baijal said it is imperative to restore trust between police and lawyers also to ensure that justice is done impartially in the entire matter.

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (PTI): The Supreme Court Wednesday asked the Centre and nine states to file a status report on filling up of vacancies in the central and state information commissions in compliance with its earlier orders. A bench headed by justices S A Bobde gave the directions after RTI activists Anjali Bhardwaj and others submitted that the earlier apex court orders have not been complied with.Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for Bhardwaj and others, said the Centre and state governments had not put the names of selected and short listed candidates on their website as directed by the apex court. He said the vacancies are yet to be filled by the Centre and states in the Central Information Commission (CIC) and State Information Commissions (SICs). The apex court had in February passed a slew of directions on filling up vacancies in the CIC and SICs and said the process of appointments must start one to two months before a post falls vacant. The court had said the post of Chief Information Commissioner is on a higher pedestal and the appointment process for a CIC should be on the “same

terms” as in the process of a chief election commissioner. Taking note of the provisions in the RTI Act, it had said besides bureaucrats, eminent citizens from other walks of life should also be considered for the post of information commissioners in the CIC. The plea by Bhardwaj, Commodore Lokesh Batra (retired) and Amrita Johri have claimed that over 23,500 appeals and complaints are pending with CIC as posts of information commissioners are lying vacant. The apex court had earlier asked the Centre and states to maintain transparency in appointments of chief information commissioner and information commissioners and upload details of search committees and applicants on the website. In July last year, the top court had expressed concern over vacancies at the chief information commission and state information commissions and had directed the Centre and seven states to file an affidavit giving a time schedule for filling up the posts. The court had asked seven states - Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Gujarat, Kerala, Odisha and Karnataka -- to apprise it about the time frame for filling up the posts.

Economy over climate


hat environmentalists have been planning for decades to save planet Earth was negated when US President Donald Trump formally announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the 195-member United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which signed the historic Paris climate agreement in December 2015. As one of the most important outcomes of international multilateral progress, the Paris Agreement showed the willingness of member countries to cooperate and clearly signalled the need for the low-carbon transformation of the international society. The global community has prepared for the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Agreement after Donald Trump was elected as US president. However, Trump’s formal declaration of withdrawal still caused worldwide reaction. Trump’s predecessor Obama’s support and his cooperation with China were seen as major factors leading to the convention’s early success. As per records, in 2019, the top carbon dioxide (CO2) emitters were China(27.2 %), the United States(14.6 %), the European Union(9%), India(6.8 %), the Russian Federation(4.7 %), and Japan(3.3%). As can be seen both China and the US contributed around 41% of carbon dioxide emissions in the world. These data include CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion, as well as cement manufacturing and gas flaring. The Paris climate deal signed in December 2015 at best, was a first step toward fixing the problem that has been in evidence for decades by melting ice sheets in the polar regions, rising seas and flooding of coastlines etc. Yet some of the consequences of an overheated planet might be avoided, or at least slowed, if the climate deal succeeds in reducing emissions. The withdrawal will leave America as the only country on Earth outside the accord, that does not agree to reduce greenhouse gas emissions enough to keep temperatures from rising to dangerous levels. Formal notice of the U.S. withdrawal comes just as global emissions keep rising, climate ambitions keep falling short, and climate scientists warn of increasingly dire consequences including drought, extreme weather, and rising sea levels. As per Article 28 of the Paris Agreement, the earliest possible effective withdrawal date by the United States cannot be before November 4, 2020, four years after the Agreement came into effect in the United States and one day after the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The long-term goals and international cooperation on climate change will be affected by budget cuts in American climate change research and the cancelation of donations from the multilateral environmental fund of the U.S. The US withdrawal stems largely from Trump’s 2016 election pledge to withdraw from the UNFCCC as part of his promise to ‘make America great again’. That means, the US will continue to take unilateral decisions not in consonance with the climate change agreement in order to pursue its economic interests. In line with policies for reducing fossil fuel emissions, countries like Germany which adhere to the emission standards would be hit by the US withdrawal. German autos will be costlier on account of fuel emission standards while those of the US will be cheaper. A UN report warns that if greenhouse emissions are not brought under control within the next 25 years, 310 million more people will suffer adverse consequences related to temperature increases, 20 million more people will fall into poverty and 75 million extra people will be displaced by climate change and would become environmental refugees.

DailyDevotion Intimate Theology

Do you believe this? —John 11:26 Martha believed in the power available to Jesus Christ; she believed that if He had been there He could have healed her brother; she also believed that Jesus had a special intimacy with God, and that whatever He asked of God, God would do. But— she needed a closer personal intimacy with Jesus. Martha’s theology had its fulfillment in the future. But Jesus continued to attract and draw her in until her belief became an intimate possession. It then slowly emerged into a personal inheritance— “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ…” (John 11:27). Is the Lord dealing with you in the same way? Is Jesus teaching you to have a personal intimacy with Himself? Allow Him to drive His question home to you— “Do you believe this?” Are you facing an area of doubt in your life? Have you come, like Martha, to a crossroads of overwhelming circumstances where your theology is about to become a very personal belief? This happens only when a personal problem brings the awareness of our personal need. To believe is to commit. In the area of intellectual learning I commit myself mentally, and reject anything not related to that belief. In the realm of personal belief I commit myself morally to my convictions and refuse to compromise. But in intimate personal belief I commit myself spiritually to Jesus Christ and make a determination to be dominated by Him alone. Then, when I stand face to face with Jesus Christ and He says to me, “Do you believe this?” I find that faith is as natural as breathing. And I am staggered when I think how foolish I have been in not trusting Him earlier.

Religio-cultural colonization and segregation: a wily move


ow to disintegrate and isolate further the shaken and bewildered religo-cultural minorities who are in majority in some pockets of the country from the ‘Hindu majoritarian’? The present dispensation is bent on targeting and polarizing the ‘minorities’ from the mainstream of the Indian society. And for this, the far-right political and cultural organization such as RSS, Bajrang Deal and other fringe elements keep evolving crafty moves more particularly since 2014 such as ‘Ghar Wapsi’, ‘One Nation, One Culture’, ‘One Nation, One Language’ and so on to change the socio-religio-cultural fabric. The social, religio-cultural fabrics India is known for and is proud of having multi-cultural, multi-religious and plural mosaic depicting metamorphically the colors that we find in the rainbow. Indian Republic is known for its plurality accommodating diverse cultures and religions in its wide canopy portraying secular character in letter and spirit. But, for RSS-BJP the basic character of accommodation and mutual co-existence should change. The agenda of the ruling dispensation is gradually moving towards wherein the mindset of those who are indecisive and sitting on the walls seem to be changing—from the culture of accommodation and inclusion to alienation and Hinduisation. We can clearly observe the changing trends in 2014 as well as 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The percentage of votes polled and the seats garnered by BJP proves the changing trend. The scenario is changing and the ‘politics of majoritarianism’ is indeed working in tune to the ideological tenors of RSS-BJP. Prior to 2014, the dictum of secularism meaning co-habitation and respect to one another was alive and vibrant, not because due to the minorities, but of the majority of the Hindus. As of now that equations, configurations and the matrix are gradually changing because of the changing political templates and narratives. The emergent scenario which the current dispensation enjoys absolute majority has daringly started to bulldoze the basic democratic values and principles all in the name of ‘brute majority’ as there is no organized opposition to

check the onslaughts of the ruling party. The GOI headed by the BJP ventured into some of the most radical changes that bewildered many particularly the ways with which the GOI went about. More shock-waves in such ways are expected to happen during the course of BJP’s tenure. More such things could be expected in the months and years to come. Propaganda machinery of the GOI headed by BJP is in absolute control that pitches the narratives and rhetoric in such ways that makes many wonder, nonetheless to ‘believe’. The notion of India is gradually changing and moving diametrically in opposite direction. This is what the current ruling dispensation believes, wants and visualizes. Its understanding of nation, nationalism and democracy seem to be entirely on the opposite plank. Their idea of India is premised on Hindu majoritarianism and muscular nationalism. Its concept of Hindu nationalism mirrors the Hindu Raj wherein Hindus are given the utmost importance and due weightage as compared to other religious communities. The hard-line Hindutva agenda on nonissues such as NRC and Citizenship Amendment Bill are squandering goodwill as well as mustering unease in the minds of minorities as well as others too. Modern India is at cross roads, wherein its rights to life, liberty, freedom and pursuit of happiness are increasingly at stake, particularly of the minorities, Dalits, tribals and women. Those who challenge and defy the dictates of the GOI will have to probably undergo serious and severe obstacles and problems. Freedom and liberty and rights to expression (words and writing), along with other rights guaranteed in the Constitution would have to be bargained by the concerned citizens with the State as we have been witnessing and experiencing some of these are blatantly being trampled upon. As seen and read in history, those rulers moving towards totalitarian rule believe in inflicting ‘fear component’ at different levels. Fear is introduced in such appalling degrees and ways that make most of the citizens to ‘fall in line’, so that whatever the ruling dispensation wants can be executed without any opposition and resistance. This

is what those totalitarian regimes did and believe in. Therefore, we are presently moving away from ‘liberal nationalism’ to ‘muscular nationalism’. A classic illustration that happened a few days ago in Bengaluru substantiates to the current impasse we are into. “Not able to spare 52 seconds for the country, but you have the audacity to sit here and watch a three-hour movie? Are you Pakistani terrorists’?” A sandalwood actor Arun Gowda and a few others shouted at four people (two men and two women) at a movie theatre in Bengaluru for allegedly not standing up when the national anthem was played. The incident occurred on the 23rd October 23, 2019 at PVR Orion Mall during the screening of Tamil movie Asrun. Actor Arun Gowda and his friends yelled at them for allegedly choosing to sit while the national anthem was played. He went on yelling that “When a national anthem came on these guys didn’t stand. Look at these guys. Just look at their faces once again. They are telling us to file a complaint.” The language that the Arun Gowda and his cronies used shows duplicity and audacity, as if they are the ones--custodians to safeguard their notions of nation and nationalism. India avoided becoming a Hindu rashtra in 1947 because of the fact those in power believed in constitutional liberalism. The current ruling dispensation is keen and thus firmly determined transforming India to Hindu rashtra via muscular nationalism. In such context specificities those who do not believe in populism, far-right hindu fundamentalism and skewed nationalism have no other choice except to resist and defy the move of RSS-BJP through democratic means as echoed in the Indian constitution. The insistent calls for Hindu rashtra by the RSS and far-right fundamentalist outfits cannot be ignored because day-in and day-out we keep hearing the motor mouths issuing new narratives couched with hatred and venom. Their poisonous ideology and political agenda could perhaps be described is the biggest anti-national project in the independent India. The current dispensation at the Centre is pushing its agenda—Hindu rashtra designed on the model of the

State of Israel which is premised on the Zionist prototype. Israeli government keep filling the Jewish settlements in the occupied areas belonging to the Palestinians—Golan Heights, Jerusalem and Gaza. All their moves is enmeshed on flushing out the Palestinians from their domiciles in due course of time via ethnic cleansing. There are semblances to the country I belong to that I have been experiencing in recent times. For example, the recent move by GOI—creation of three union territories such as Jammu, Kashmir and Ladah show that the three religious communities exclusively dominate in these landscapes such as Jammu with Hindus, Kashmir with Muslims and Ladakh with Buddhists. Though the GOI offers all sorts of reasons to justify and legitimize its position, the move behind the repeal of the articles is primarily to destroy the multi-cultural landscapes of those terrains. Apparently the gateway for this is to create an ambiance in the pretext of ‘mainstreaming’ and ‘one nation, one law, one constitution’— which means pushing its agenda of Hinduisation with an objective of destroying multi-culturalism vis-àvis the Rainbow Republic. Internal colonization is in the offing so that the pockets where the minorities, Dalits and indigenous communities live with social equality and economic prosperity are pushed to miserable conditions—losing their rights and dignity wherein their livelihood totally dependent under the mercy of the GOI as secondary citizens. As of now the GOI have selectively isolated the Muslims and gradually come down heavily on others. No one knows what would be the outcome of the current talks with the Nagas. However, Nagaland is yet another serious matter which needs serious scrutiny and to be watched which under scanner of GOI because it is being predominantly dominated by the Christians who happened to be indigenous people. However, the policies of the GOI fail to meet the principles of accommodation and harmonious living. Its moves are quite visible and predictable. It functions on the premises of: dislocate the communities other than the Hindus that have been living for ages, create fear and anxiety, break their resolve and

resilience, and infiltrate with the dominant fanatic people those who subscribe to mob frenzy and fanatic ultra-religious fundamentalism. With brute majority the GOI is gaming democracy—involved in poaching the MLAs and MPs from opposition political parties; abusing the Government machinery and institutions of governance to intimidate, raid and taking them for interrogation in one pretext or the other; alleging those engaged with poor and the marginalized by branding them being associated with “anti-nationals” thereby involved with “seditious activities”. Is the current political impasse going to have passing significance or lasting significance? Ours is a young democracy and we did witness emergency in mid 1970s and now our democracy showing all semblance of totalitarian rule and moving towards a regime which could be ruthless. And so, it is going to have lasting significance as we have started to realize what it means to have brute majority without any credible opposition. Absolute power in the hands of a few by all means corrupts absolutely and there’s no second thought to it. Parliamentary democracy guided by Constitution has become an open mockery where in the name of ‘democracy’ rule of law is subverted. Lessons of history show chilling effects on people and nations. The populism and religious fundamentalism we are in is quite dangerous and harmful for the present and future of our country. Brute majority has robbed the institutions of governance which in turn has created consequential effects and grave impact on public confidence. We at present are caught in trust deficit. The society particularly the polity the populace live in by and large losing their trust deficit on those who govern. In such a context a question that looms is: What is to be done? Those who believe in the ethos of accommodation, peace, harmonious living and mutual co-existence of all races, communities, ethnicities cutting across caste, religion, class and host of others must rise and thus bring the current project of the ruling dispensation to a halt by employing democratic and constitutional means and methods.

Appeal to F&CS department


Earlier, there were 300 Priority Households (PHH) ration card-holders in Veterinary Colony, Dimapur. However, after the instruction from the Department of Food & Civil Supplies to submit necessary documents for renewal/replacement of ration card, which was duly completed, the number of card holders have drastically come down to 124 only. And the Fair Price Shop (FPS) is releasing ration only to those 124 cards thereby causing hardship to the remaining 176. The 176 card-holders of the system are agitated demanding to know from the Department as to where does their share of ration go when the FPS is issuing ration only to 124. There is likelihood of this aggrieved group of people creating unwanted situation if they are not treated at par with the beneficiaries of the latest list. Therefore, as a leader of the colony, I appeal the Department of Food & Civil Supplies to clarify on the issue and look in the matter positively.

Centre earned Rs 192 cr as NEET2019 entrance fee

Tharoor-headed parl panel to take up WhatsApp snooping case on Nov 20

Bhopal, Nov 6 (IANS): Central government earned more than Rs 192 crore from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) fees in 2019, according to RTI information. NEET is held for admission to MBBS, BDS and other such courses in medical colleges. Neet 2019 was held on May 5 this year for which online application fees was fixed at Rs 1400 for general and OBC category candidates and Rs 750 for SC/ST candidates. Out of the 15,19,375 candidates who applied for NEET exam, only 14,10,755 candidates appeared. Replying to a RTI query from Neemuch-based activist Chandrashekhar Gaud, the National Testing Agency which conducts the NEET exam and comes under the HRD ministry, said it collected Rs 192,43,22,162 as entrance fees from the 15,19,375 candidates, who enrolled themselves for exam in 2019.

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (PTI): A parliamentary standing committee headed by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor will take up the WhatsApp snooping case in its next meeting on November 20, sources said on Wednesday. Tharoor, who heads the parliamentary standing committee on information technology, said in a letter to his panel members that alleged use of the technology for snooping on Indian citizens was a matter of “grave concern” and it would be discussed at the committee’s next meeting on November 20. Facebook-owned WhatsApp on October 31 said Indian journalists and human rights activists were among those globally spied upon by unnamed entities using an Israeli spyware Pegasus. In the letter, sources said, Tharoor urged the committee members that

He said he has fixed deposit amounting to lakhs in the bank and his livelihood depends on the interest earned from this deposit. “If this is way the bank deals with their customers, people will lose faith in the banking system,” he said. Tajinder Singh, a senior citizen, said he has been a customer of the bank for the past five years and has deposits of Rs 1.4 crore. Tajinder said he had deposited Rs 40 lakh on September 23, just a day before the cap on withdrawal kicked in. “None of the bank representatives cautioned me of the impending crisis,” he said. Harmeet Singh (28), a salesman by profession, said he had taken a loan to buy a house and deposited Rs 15 lakh in the bank just two months ago.

MUMBAI, NOV 6 (PTI): Amid the stand-off over government formation in Maharashtra, senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut meet NCP chief Sharad Pawar in Mumbai on Wednesday. “This was a courtesy call,” Raut told reporters later. The BJP and the Shiv Sena are locked in a bitter tussle over sharing of the chief minister’s post and ministerial portfolios in new government in the state. There has been no head-

way in government formation after results of the state Assembly polls were declared on October 24 in which the BJP won 105 seats, Shiv Sena-56, NCP- 54 and Congress-44. Raut, who is a Rajya Sabha member, earlier said his party was firm on a written assurance from the senior alliance partner over power sharing, including rotation of the chief minister’s post for two-and-a-half years. He also claimed that there was a “consensus” between the

BJP and the Shiv before the Maharashtra Assembly polls on sharing the chief minister’s post. The NCP on Tuesday said a political alternative can be worked out in the state if the Shiv Sena declared that it had snapped ties with the BJP. Sources in the NCP said their party wants Arvind Sawant, the lone Shiv Sena minister in the Union government, to resign before going ahead further with the Uddhav Thackeray-led party.

as a democratic republic, “we must ensure adequate safeguards to prevent any misuse of the executive’s powers in an unauthorised manner or for extraneous purposes.” Underlining that the Supreme Court of India has clearly recognised the fundamental right to privacy, Tharoor said there is need to analyse the legality, legitimacy and necessity of any action that infringes on

this right. He said the standing committee members from both the ruling party and the Opposition must work together to safeguard the fundamental rights of the citizens. Besides the parliamentary panel on information technology, the panel on Home Affairs will also take up this issue of “snooping” in its next meeting. For its part, WhatsApp had said it was suing NSO Group, an Israeli surveillance firm, that is reportedly behind the technology that helped unnamed entities hack into phones of roughly 1,400 users. These users span across four continents and include diplomats, political dissidents, journalists and senior government officials. Union Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has asked WhatsApp for a report on the allegations.

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (PTI): A group of distressed PMC depositors gathered outside the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) office here on Wednesday, seeking an assurance that their deposits in the scam-hit corporative bank are safe and will be returned to them within a stipulated time. On Tuesday, the RBI increased the withdrawal limit from the bank’s customers to Rs 50,000 but this has done little to assuage the concerns of the distressed depositors. Most of the 20-odd depositors who have gathered at the RBI headquarters here are from Tilak Nagar in west Delhi, where the bank has a branch.Taranjit Singh (33) said at least a representative from the RBI should assure them that the deposited amount will be returned in a given time frame. Singh, who is in a private job, has Rs 10 lakh deposited in the scam-hit bank. “The RBI should conduct a press conference and assure us that our money is safe,” he said. Punjab & Maharashtra Cooperative Bank (PMC Bank), which is among the top 10 urban cooperative banks, was placed under an RBI administrator on September 23 for six months due to massive under-reporting of dud loans. The crisis began after an alleged ?4,355-crore scam came to light and the RBI capped withdrawals at Rs 1,000 per customer from September 24. Subsequently, it raised the withdrawal limits to Rs 50,000 in multiple

The four accused in the extortion case are the

confinement under section 342 and criminal intimidation under section 506 of the IPC. The SIT was constituted by the Uttar Pradesh government on the orders of the Supreme Court in September to investigate the charges levelled by the woman, who was then a postgraduate student at a college run by Chinmayanand’s trust. The woman went missing on August 24, a day after she posted a video on social media alleging that a “senior leader of the sant community” was harassing and threatening to kill her. Her father had filed a complaint with the police, accusing Chinmayanand of sexually harassing her, a charge refuted by the former Union minister’s lawyer who claimed it was a “conspiracy” to blackmail him. Chinmayanand was later arrested on September 21.

IG-rank officer Naveen Arora, who is heading the SIT, had said on Tuesday that BJP leaders DPS Rathore and Ajit Singh have also been made accused in the extortion case. Chinmayamand, the law student, and some others were also brought to the court on Wednesday after the charge sheet was filed. The law student and her three male friends were booked under sections 35 (criminal act done with a criminal knowledge or intention), 385 (extortion), 506 (criminal intimidation), 201 (disappearance of evidences) of the Indian Penal Code and section 67 of the Information Technology Act.

Onion price rise due to fall in output

Workers dry onions which got wet following heavy rain, in Chikmagalur in Karnataka, Wednesday. (PTI)

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (PTI): Onion prices have shot up to Rs 80/kg in the retail market due to 30-40 per cent decline in domestic production and the government is taking all steps to contain the price rise, Union Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said on Wednesday. In view of high prices, Paswan reviewed the situation of demand, supply and prices with top officials of food and consumer affairs departments for two hours at his residence. The secretaries of both the departments were present. “We have reviewed the onion availability and price situation. Prices have gone up as production (kharif onion) has declined by 30-40

per cent in the country,” Paswan told reporters here. There was a delay in sowing of kharif onion because of late arrival of monsoon and later floods in many states damaged the crop, he said. Stating that prices fluctuate depending on supply-demand, Paswan said currently, there is mismatch in this. However, the government is taking measures to improve availability and check prices. “We are concerned about the situation and the government is trying its best. We have taken maximum steps,” he said. Asked when the prices will cool down, Paswan said, “I am not an astrologer but it should hopefully come down by end of November

or beginning December.” He also appealed consumers and media to give suggestions to address the current crisis. Highlighting measures, Paswan said the government has banned the export of raw and processed onions, imposed stock holding limits on traders besides offloading buffer stock at a cheaper rate of Rs 23.90 per kg to provide relief to consumers. That apart, the government is making efforts to facilitate imports through private trade from Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey and Iran. The Agriculture Ministry has also been asked to liberalise import norms, he said. Paswan said much of the onions from the buffer stock of 57,000 tonnes has been disposed off, while 25 per cent of it has been rotten due to short shelf life of the commodity. Still, 1,525 tonnes is left in the central buffer stock. He also blamed the Delhi government for not lifting the buffer stock and questioning about the quality of the onion. Consumer Affairs Secretary Avinash K Srivastava said onion production is estimated to have declined to 20 lakh tonnes in 2019 kharif season from 30 lakh tonnes in the same season last year.

from the Maharashtra government, but there is substantial fall in the output because of floods, he said. Not only in Delhi, onion prices are ruling high in most of the consuming areas across the country. However in the national capital, onion has been a “politically sensitive” commodity. In Delhi, the availability of onion is being improved from the central buffer stock handled by cooperative Nafed. The buffer stock has been given to Mother Dairy for retailing at a cheaper rate of Rs 23.90 per kg through its 400-odd Safal outlets to provide relief to consumers. However, some of the Safal outlets are running out of stock and poor consumers are returning with disappointment. “I waited for two hours in the queue to buy onions from Safal but when my turn came the stock got over,” said a housemaid Mumtaz who was waiting outside the Safal outlet at Jangpura Extension. The price rise has affected to an extent that in some localities, the customers of a particular colony are requesting the Safal owners not to sell the commodity to outsiders.

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (IANS): IDBI Bank has declared Vijay Mallya a wilful defaulter and issued a public notice on Wednesday with his old passport size photograph for default on payments worth Rs 1,566 crore in respect to Kingfisher Airlines. IDBI Bank NPA Management Group in Mumbai issued a public notice about wilful defaulter with the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines as the borrower and Vijay Mallya as the director and guarantor. The notice carries an old black and white photograph of Vijay Mallya with his address given as UB Tower, Bangalore. Vijay Mallya is currently in London and the Indian government has initiated legal proceedings to seek his extradition. IDBI Bank has informed and cautioned the public through the notice that “no person shall deal with any of the properties of the borrower/guarantor as huge dues are to be recovered from them”. IDBI Bank said these borrowers and guarantors failed and neglected to pay the instalments of principal, interest to IDBI Bank.

Sensex scales fresh closing peak MUMBAI, NOV 6 (PTI): The BSE Sensex resumed its record-setting run on Wednesday -- rallying 222 points to its new lifetime high of 40,469.78 -- as investors accumulated banking and financial stocks amid hopes of more reform measures to boost growth. After opening on a choppy note, the 30-share Sensex touched an all-time intra-day high of 40,606.91 in late-afternoon trade. It finally ended 221.55 points, or 0.55 per cent, higher at 40,469.78. The previous closing high was 40,301.96, hit on November 4 (Monday). Similarly, the broader NSE Nifty briefly reclaimed the 12,000 level, before finishing at 11,966.05, showing a gain of 48.85 points, or 0.41 per cent. Benchmark indices have been on a rising spree on the back of strong earnings, hopes for another economic booster from the government and positive cues from global markets, experts said. Speaking late on Tuesday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the government is working on steps to resolve the issues being faced by realty sector, which has a spillover effect on many industries. Top gainers in the

Sensex pack included ICICI Bank, Infosys, HDFC, IndusInd Bank, Tata Motors, Kotak Bank, Axis Bank, L&T, Yes Bank and HUL, spurting up to 2.64 per cent. On the other hand, Bharti Airtel, RIL, Bajaj Finance, ONGC, HCL Tech, ITC and Sun Pharma slipped up to 3.31 per cent. “Market clocked a new high based on commitment from the FM to speed up reforms in the near future. Realty and financials outperformed in expectation of new measures while metal stocks gained owing to easing global trade war. “Better results from index heavyweights kept expectation high for earnings growth, influencing inves-

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (PTI): Within days of government approving a relief package for the ailing corporation, state-owned BSNL has rolled out a voluntary retirement scheme for its employees, and said it expects 70,000-80,000 personnel to opt for it leading to savings of about Rs 7,000 crore in wage bill. BSNL Chairman and Managing Director P K Purwar told PTI that the scheme will be open between November 4 and December 3, and that instructions have already been given to field units to inform employees about the VRS offering. In all, nearly one lakh BSNL employees are eligible for the VRS out of its total staff strength of 1.50 lakh. “This is the best VRS

US and China have been hinting at a ‘phase one’ trade deal anytime this month. “Depreciation is getting capped as market has started getting doubtful of the silence amid China’s attempts to push the US to remove more tariffs,” Gupta added.

Meanwhile, foreign institutional investors bought equities worth a net Rs 1,011.49 crore on Wednesday, provisional exchange data showed. “Indian r upee under-performed the most amongst the Asian basket by plunging more than 30 paise against the dollar to trade at 71,” said V K Sharma, Head PCG and Capital Markets Strategy, HDFC Securities. Sharma further said the “rupee did not react negatively towards spike in crude prices and Dollar index in the recent past and perhaps today it has restored the parity with the dollar.” Brent futures, the global oil benchmark, slipped 0.30 per cent to USD 62.77 per barrel. The 10-year government bond yield was at 6.49 per cent.


MUMBAI, NOV 6 (PTI): Snapping its three-session winning streak, the Indian rupee tumbled 28 paise to close at 70.97 against the US dollar on Wednesday as continuing uncertainty over the US-China trade deal affected currency market sentiment worldwide. However, robust foreign fund inflows and easing crude oil prices restricted the fall for the domestic unit, forex brokers said. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 70.80 and skidded to 71.01 against the greenback intra-day. The local unit finally settled at 70.97, down 28 paise over its previous close.

Over 11,000 scientists declare ‘climate emergency’

The study by 11,258 scientists has formally come out in favour of labelling climate change an ‘emergency’.

energy use, most indicators suggest humans are rapidly heading in the wrong direction, they said. Backward steps include rising meat consumption, more air travel, chopping down forests faster than ever and increase in global carbon dioxide emissions. Scientists said they want the public to ‘understand the magnitude of this crisis, track progress, and realign priorities for alleviating climate change’. The study also departs from other major climate assessments in that it directly addresses the politically sensitive subject of population growth. The research notes that the global decline in fertility rates has ‘substantially slowed’ during the past 20 years, and calls for ‘bold and drastic’ changes in economic growth and population policies to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Such measures would include policies that strengthen human rights, especially for women and

girls, and make family planning services ‘available to all people.’ “Global surface temperature, ocean heat content, extreme weather and its costs, sea level, ocean acidity and land area are all rising,” Professor Ripple said. “Ice is rapidly disappearing as shown by declining trends in minimum summer Arctic sea ice, Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, and glacier thickness. All of these rapid changes highlight the urgent need for action.” L e a d a u t h o r, D r Thomas Newsome from the University of Sydney, said measuring global surface temperatures remained important but that a broader set of indicators should be monitored. This includes human population growth, meat consumption, treecover loss, energy consumption, fossil-fuel subsidies and annual economic losses to extreme weather events, he said.

New York, Nov 6 (IANS): US President Donald Trump’s Republican Party has suffered setbacks in two states, losing the governorship of Kentucky and the legislature in Virginia a year away from the presidential election. Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin lost re-election very narrowly on Tuesday by less than half-a-per cent or about 5,100 votes, but the loss is significant because Trump had won Kentucky in the 2016 presidential election with a 30 per cent lead. The defeat of Bevin, for whom Trump campaigned, was tempered by the victory of Republican candidates in five other state-wide offices like secretary of state and attorney general, though with smaller margins compared to Trump’s showing an erosion of Republican support. In Virginia both the upper and lower chambers of the state legislature flipped to the Democrats giving them full control of the government for the first time in many decades. Democrat Governor Ralph Northam was already in office. The Republicans kept the governorship of Mississippi with Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves winning with a six per cent lead, much lower than Trump’s 17.8 per cent. New Jersey was a silver lining for Republicans. Complete results were not in by early Wednesday morning but reported that the Republicans

London, Nov 6 (PTI): In a setback to Nirav Modi, a UK court on Wednesday rejected a new bail application of the fugitive diamond merchant, who is fighting extradition to India on charges of nearly USD 2 billion PNB fraud and money laundering case. Dressed in a blue sweater and freshly shaved, the 48-year-old was produced before Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London to make another attempt at being let out on bail until his trial in May next year. Judge Emma Arbuthnot rejected his bail application despite Modi’s offer to double security from 2 million pounds to 4 million pounds. Modi was looking distinctly healthier than his previous appearance before the same court earlier this year. He reportedly claimed anxiety and depression in his latest application, with earlier bail applications at the court being rejected by Chief Magistrate Arbuthnot, and then also on appeal at the High Court in London, as he was deemed a flight risk.

were set to gain at least four seats. That won’t be enough to switch control of the legislature now held by Democrats with a 28-seat margin in the 80-member Assembly. With the presidential election just under a year away, Tuesday’s elections showed that Trump’s margins of victory in 2016 had been shaved significantly even when his party candidates won. Looking ahead, according to RealClearPolitics, the authoritative aggregator of polls, as of now all the five front-runners for the Democratic Party nomination - Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg - lead Trump by between 4.5 and 10 per cent. Tr ump in a tweet claimed credit for the five Republican wins in Kentucky and the governorship in Mississippi. He even claimed that he had boosted the votes for Bevin 15 points for whom he had campaigned. He added, “Fake News will blame Trump for Bevin’s loss.” Democrat Andy Beshar, who defeated Bevin, concentrated on local issues in his campaign and avoided making it a referendum on impeachment. Bevin has not conceded defeat and is expected to contest the results because of the slender margin. In Virginia, the Republican candidates for the state legislature avoided involving Trump in their campaigns unsure of his effect on the electorate.

Washington, Nov 6 (IANS): More than 11,000 scientists in 153 countries have declared a climate emergency around the world and also warned of ‘untold suffering’ unless there is significant transformation in the way humans live. The study by 11,258 scientists called the “World scientists’ warning of a climate emergency,” marks the first time a large group of scientists has formally come out in favour of labelling climate change an ‘emergency’. It was published on Tuesday in the journal Bioscience, spearheaded by ecologists Bill Ripple and Christopher Wolf of Oregon State University, along with William Moomaw, a Tufts University climate scientist, and researchers in Australia and South Africa. The findings focus on six key objectives: replacing fossil fuels; cutting pollutants like methane and soot; restoring and protecting ecosystems; eating less meat; converting the economy to one that is carbon-free and stabilising population growth. “Despite 40 years of global climate negotiations, with few exceptions, we have generally conducted business as usual and have largely failed to address this predicament,” the study stated. Although there are some positive indicators such as declining birth rates and a rise in renewable

Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that the metal icons will return for a string of US festival headline shows next summer, their first dates since frontman James Hetfield entered rehab in September for substance abuse.

2019. The director released his latest movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood in the UK back in August. Now, in a new interview with Deadline, Tarantino, who is always vocal about the films he admires, reveals that his number one choice for the year (so far) is July’s horror flick Crawl. Starring Kaya Scodelario (Skins), the Sam Raimi-produced film sees the cast surrounded by a hell of a lot of alligators. As part of the interview, journalist Pete Hammond reveals: “Tarantino told me that, as incredible as he says it might sound, he thinks his favourite film so far this year just might be – wait for it – Crawl. “That’s right, the alligators-in-a-hurricane movie directed by Alexandre Aja that Paramount released a couple of weeks before QT’s movie came out in July.” NME‘s Jordan Bassett called Crawl a “brutally effective and gore-splattered horror.” Tarantino recently opened up on the future of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood character Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), and what might’ve happened to him after the film. “There are a few different ways his career could have gone depending on who you hitch your horse to of who he is representing,” the director began. “The George Maharis way is this way, the Tye Hardin way is that way. It’s a combination of a few of them. (NME)

RD Mathur presenting memento to R. N Ravi at Kohima, Wednesday. (NP) Correspondent

KOHIMA, NOV 6 (NPN): A unique Ultra Marathon was undertaken by air warriors of the Indian Air Force from the Kargil War Memorial, Drass (J&K) on September 21 to the Kohima War Cemetery, Kohima under the banner “Kargil to Kohima (K2K) Glory Run”. The event was undertaken by the Indian Air Force as a part of the ongoing celebrations to commemorate the completion of 20 years of victory during the Kargil War. Speaking at the culmination programme at the Kohima War Cemetery

Wednesday, Nagaland governor R. N Ravi said that all the rivers and valleys that the rallies came across has rich civilization thereby he said it needs to be adequately documented and presented as it will be invaluable learning and teaching material for the youth. Ravi said the air warriors are an inspiration for the youth of the country and said the routes they passed through would inspire many youths to join the IAF. He said the 45 days event has created a wealth of material which can be used by different ministries and institutions, a material for the ministry of youth and sports, ministry of culture

and for the ministry for human resource development. Ravi said the event was an inspirational for the Naga youth culmination at the historical place in Kohima WW-II was apt destination and said this should be reflected in the document because there was a great illiteracy in this country about Nagaland. The governor regretted that wrong information’s has been propagated over a period of time and are demonizing the most evolving civilized people. He reminded that a village that has met its economic, social, political and different needs, sustained and survived for hundreds and hundreds of years was

incredible and it was one of the richest living civilizations in the world and said this fact has to be brought out to the country and this must be known the culmination of glory run was held in the land of very rich civilization. Ravi commented that being head hunters is a war trophy, fought war and took the head as token of victory and it was prevalent all over the world that warriors has invariably done it but unfortunately he said British period has demonetized and created a pervert narrative about Nagas and Naga society which was very uncharitable. Therefore he said the documents that produced must honestly and adequately reflect the ancient and present glory of the people where the journey has culminated as it would be invaluable contribution to the Indian nation. Ravi also paid homage to all the brave hearts of the nation who paid their supreme sacrifice with a He congratulated the air warriors for the successful mission and also complimented that Indian Air Force has made the country proud at every occasion and in times of adversary IAF per formed that rested a vic-

tory out of the jaws of an adverse situations.

Hyderabad to top ISL board

Players of North East United and Hyderabad FC in action at Balayogi Stadium.

HYDERABAD, NOV 6 (AGENCIES): Substitute Maximiliano Barreira converted a late penalty as NorthEast United defeated Hyderabad FC 1-0 on Wednesday at the Balayogi Stadium. The Highlanders moved to the top of the standings in the Indian Super League (ISL) with eight points after four matches. Hyderabad, who couldn’t convert their chances, are ninth on the table with just three points. NorthEast opted for the same line-up that played out an entertaining 2-2

draw against FC Goa. Phil Brown brought in Gani Ahmed for Robin Singh to the Hyderabad side that defeated Kerala at the same venue. Marcelinho provided an electric start to the fixture, skipping past Mislav Komorski and pulling the trigger as early as the fifth minute. But Subhasish Roy did well to react in time and prevent the hosts from scoring an early goal. Hyderabad then came close through Mohammed Yasir and Stankovic but were unable to alter the scoreline. Marcelinho and

Abhishek Halder linked well following Komorski’s poor give-away of the ball. Halder set Marko Stankovic up just outside the NorthEast area but the Austrian’s curling effort was inches away from the top corner. At the other end, Uruguayan midfielder Martin Chaves was provided with the best chance of the game when he found himself unmarked at the centre of Hyderabad box with the ball at his feet. But the 21-yearold could not keep his effort on target and wasted the opportunity to provide his team with an unlikely lead.

Adidas reveals official match WC qualifiers: Dheeraj gets maiden call-up as Stimac names squad ball for UEFA EURO 2020

NEW DELHI, NOV 6 (IANS): Sports apparel designer and manufacturer Adidas on Wednesday revealed Uniforia - the Official Match Ball for UEFA EURO 2020. Named in honour of the unity and the euphoria that football can bring, the ball is designed to celebrate the togetherness that next years tournament will inspire across the continent as part of its new look for 2020. Drawing inspiration from the tournament’s revamped format which will

see it played out across 12 different European countries for the first time ever, Uniforia’s design commemorates the notion of crossing bridges, blending borders and diversity of fan and athlete through a unique blend of art and football. These elements were the starting point for the design process of the ball which began in 2018. Anika Marie Kennaugh, Product Designer at Adidas, commented: “When designing an Official Match Ball, we always

look to reflect culture; what is the spirit of the street that we can proudly showcase in the stadium. What we saw in our cities is the need to come together and unite for change. As one of the major sporting events in the world, UEFA EURO2020TM is a great opportunity to proudly showcase the power of unity and to celebrate sport as a connector of people, ideas and creativity.” Uniforia’s design features bold, black brushstroke style lines running across the ball, symbolising the blurring of boundaries and crossing of borders as reflective of the competition’s new transcontinental format. These broad strokes are interjected with flashes of bright, light colours throughout, as a celebration of the tournament’s diversity and bringing together of different cultures. As a celebration of unity to mark the 60th anniversary of the competition, UEFA EURO2020TM will be held across 12 countries -- London, Glasgow, Dublin, Bilbao, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, St. Petersburg, Munich, Budapest, Rome, Bucharest and Baku.

KOLKATA, NOV 6 (IANS): Young goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem got his maiden call-up to the national team as Indian football team head coach Igor Stimac announced his 26-member squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifier against Afghanistan and Oman scheduled to be played in Dushanbe (Tajikistan) and Muscat (Oman) on November 14 and 19 respectively. Dheeraj, whose performance under the bar, during FIFA U17 World Cup India 2017 earned him huge praise, became the third player, after skipper Amarjit Singh and defender Anwar Ali, from the India U-17 world cup squad to get summoned to the senior team camp. “Dheeraj is a player for the future. We have always trusted our youngsters and they have also shown their prowess on the pitch. Our first choice goalkeepers are Gurpreet and Amrinder and we have seen Kamaljit and Vishal too. Now we would like to see Dheeraj closely as he belongs to those we should rely on in the future,” coach Stimac said in an All India Football Federation (AIFF) statement. Incidentally, two back-to-back away fixtures are always something which is “not going to be easy with the travelling involved”. “It’s not going to be easy with the travelling involved. But, we are professionals and we know how to take care of our bodies. How we travel,

what we eat, how much we sleep is going to be very important,” Chhetri sounded cautious ahead of the two pivotal matches in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Stimac mentioned it was “not an easy task” to shortlist the players “given the healthy competition” in the team. “I trust them and they know their responsibilities. After watching the league matches since they started, we have shortlisted these

players. Some players who are not on the list also performed highly and came very close to getting selected,” Stimac continued. “It’s not going to be an easy task to select only a few players, given the healthy competition we have in each position. This is a good headache for us.” Squad: Goalkeepers: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Amrinder Singh, Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem; Defenders: Pritam Kotal, Nishu Ku-

mar, Rahul Bheke, Anas Edathodika, Narender, Adil Khan, Sarthak Golui, Subhasish Bose, Mandar Rao Dessai; Midfielders: Udanta Singh, Jackichand Singh, Seiminlen Doungel, Raynier Fernandes, Vinit Rai, Sahal Abdul Samad, Pronay Halder, Anirudh Thapa, Lallianzuala Chhangte, Brandon Fernandes, Ashique Kuruniyan; Forwards: Sunil Chhetri, Farukh Choudhary, Manvir Singh

Liverpool eke out 2-1 victory over Genk

Liverpool players celebrate after a victory goal against KRC Genk in Champions League.

L iv e r pool , N ov 6 (IANS): Liverpool defeated KRC Genk 2-1 to claim first place in Champions League Group E with 9 points from four matches. The holders are one point ahead of Napoli, who could do no better than a 1-1 draw in their match Tuesday

against third-place Red Bull Salzburg, reports Efe news. Genk, still looking for their first-ever win after 15 Champions League matches, are the weakest club in the group and nobody was surprised to see Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp leave Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and

Andrew Robertson on the bench to rest them on Tuesday ahead of Sunday’s Premier League showdown with Manchester City. Even so, the Reds dominated the early going in front of their supporters at Anfield and took the lead in the 14th minute on a goal by Georgin-

io Wijnaldum. The Dutch international scored with an assist from James Milner, Liverpool’s best player of the night, who came close to making it 2-0 seven minutes later. Instead, the next goal was to come from Genk, as an unmarked Mbwana Samatta headed-in a corner in the 41st minute to bring his side level against a seemingly distracted Liverpool. Samatta inspired his teammates and Genk midfielder Bryan Heynen didn’t miss by much two minutes later. The visitors had another chance to go ahead early in the second half, but forward Junya Ito opted to pass instead of taking the high-percentage shot. Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t hesitate when opportunity knocked in the 53rd minute, converting a pass from Mohamed Salah to put the hosts up 2-1.
