Though, there were two separate counters one for ladies and another for gents but those were clearly insufficient for public.

such works. “We government servants are unable to come and stand in long queues and therefore the administration should consider opening the counter on Saturdays too,” requested some government (See page 8)

NE W DEL HI: C ongr ess president Sonia Gandhi, reportedly suffering from viral fever, was on Tuesday admitted in a Delhi hospital. But the party’s functioning in Parliament is unlikely to be particularly handicapped by her absence in the middle of a surcharged session. Vicepresident Rahul Gandhi has been managing the daily affairs of the Congress Parliamentary Party during the winter session so far and Sonia Gandhi has kept off Parliament barring on the opening day on November 16.Not that she was unwell since the beginning of the session. She had presided over Indira Gandhi’s birth centenary celebration on November 19 and travelled to Allahabad on November 21 to flag off a mobile exhibition. Party leader s feel her skipping Par liament, hence, was a way of facilitating Rahul Gandhi — de facto decision maker in most organisational matters — to take charge of the party’s parliamentary wing too. Since this has come immediately after the No-

vember 7 CWC meeting, which appealed to Rahul to take over the leadership, party sources interpret it as yet another step towards fasttracking the leadership transition. Party sources said during this session (except when he was travelling or preoccupied), Rahul has been carrying out the duties his mother had been doing in the past sessions as party chief and CPP chairperson. He presides over strategy meetings of the party’s floor leaders and CPP functionaries every morning and meets Congress MPs individually and in groups to hear them out. Gandhi also joined the combined meetings of Opposition leaders convened by RS Opposition leader Ghulam Nabi Azad to discuss ‘united action’ against the government besides joining the Opposition dharnas. Compared to his past record, Gandhi also spends more time in House this session. When contacted, Congr es s whip KC Venugopal told ET: “In this session, Rahulji has been almos t daily p r es iding over our strategy meetings and meeting C ongr ess MPs, before finalising the collective Congress strategy in both the Houses.”

Wing tips of two taxiing planes collide at Mumbai Airport

In yet another aviation close shave, the wing tips of two taxiing aircraft collided with each other at Mumbai airport on Wednesday morning. The wing tip collision happened when a Kuwait Airways wide body aircraft's wing hit the wing tip of an IndiGo aircraft. A passenger saw this happen and in turn alerted the IndiGo crew. The IndiGo Airbus A320 (VT-IFP)'s sharklet curved portion at the tip of aircraft wing -- was damaged due to the impact and the plane had to be grounded. Confirming the incident, an IndiGo spokesperson said: "At about 5.45am on Wednesday morning while the aircraft of this international airline was taxing toward the parking stand, at the same time an IndiGo flight (6E 207) was taxing to depart to

Jaipur from taxiway 'N' and 'W' respectively.... under the air traffic control (ATC) instruction. IndiGo pilot was advised to follow the international operator arrival." "Approximately at 5.45am, the pilot of this international airline was advised by the ATC to move ahead to make way for IndiGo aircraft. As per (rules), while an aircraft is on taxiway N, Taxiway W4 must not be permitted to use as standard wingtip clearance is not met .... Hence, due to the taxiing process, the Airbus 320 aircraft of IndiGo came in contact with Airbus A330 aircraft of the international operator," the low cost airline said."As the wing tip of the two aircraft came in contact, an IndiGo passenger observed this and immediately alerted the crew, who informed the pilots about this. The highly experienced pilot-in-command operating 6E 207 immediately decided to take the precautionary measure and returned the aircraft to the parking bay. The flight crew en-

sured to keep all passengers informed about the situation and assured to maintain calm on board. All passengers were safely accommodated to the other aircraft." The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is probing this incident and IndiGo said it is 'supporting' this probe. A passenger on board the IndiGo flight said: "IndiGo handled the incident very well and there was no panic despite the same. The flight wing got dented while moving towards runway. Once a passenger saw this and reported to the airline staff, the plane went back to the terminal and everyone was sent in another aircraft arranged for by IndiGo." The Mumbai Airport is also probing the incident. "Luckily no one was injured. We will devise procedures to avoid a similar situation arising again," said an airport source.

French boost to jet engine plan, Kaveri project being revived NEW DELHI: India’s quest to develop its own fighter jet engine got a leg up after a $2-million consultancy agreement was finalised with leading French defence manufacturer Safran to help revive the Kaveri project. The project stalled in 2014 after the Kaveri gas turbine engine developed for combat planes and unmanned aircraft was unable to provide the required power thrust — a fact French experts expect to correct after study. Initial assessments by the French company show that 25-30% more work is needed for the Kaveri engine to be combatworthy. A detailed joint development plan will be drawn up that could use offset credits — the obligation is 50% of contract cost, which translates to over 3 billion euros — coming from the Rafale fighter jet deal.As reported by ET in July, France has

offered a 1-billion euro investment to revive the project. Several rounds of discussions have already taken place since January between Safran, which has developed the M88 engines for Rafale, and Indian developers. Apart from the initial consultancy fees, India may not need to spend on development as the French side has proposed to make the Kaveri flight-worthy within 18 months for integration into the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft by 2020. The Indian Air Force is

committed to buying at least 80 of the LCA Mk 1A fighters that will meet higher technical requirements than the version inducted this year. The aircraft is currently powered by American GE 404 engines that faced a procurement delay after the nuclear tests in 1998, causing a setback to the Tejas programme. A joint working group on jet engine technology has also been formed with the US under the Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI).

Widespread protests across Andhra Pradesh over demonetisation VIJAYAWADA: Opposition parties organised widespr ead protest s acr oss Andhra Pradesh against the Centre's demonetisation move but no bandh as such was observed in the state today even as leaders of CPI and YSRC were detained at some places following demonstrations. Congress' state unit president N Raghuveera Reddy led his party workers in a prot est r ally from Andhra Ratna Bhavan to Lenin Centre. "We are not against the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes but why did the government introduce Rs 2000 note," Raghuveera said. He said the common man was put to untold misery because of the "abrupt" decision of the Centre to ban the high denomination notes.

CPI state secretary K Ramakrishna and others were taken into custody at the Lenin Centre where they staged a protest on the demonetisation issue. In T irupati, YSR Congress leader Bhumana Karunakar Reddy and others were taken into custody. In Guntur city too YSRC leaders, led by West MLA Mustafa, were detained by police following a protest rally. YSRC leaders and workers were also taken into custody in many other districts of the state where protests were held. Left-affiliated trade unions organised dharnas in front of many bus depots of AP State Road Transport Corporation in the state. However, RTC services were not disrupted.

'Never thought a khap would honour me for showing strength in the arena of life' Paralympian Deepa Malik was felicitated by Malik Ghatwala Khap at a ceremony in Haryana's Rohtak on Wednesday. Malik had become the first Indian woman to win a Paralympic medal when she won silver in shotput at the recent 2016 Rio Paralympics. Deepa Malik shared her experience with : I was felicitated today with a ceremonial mace ( gadda ) by the Malik Ghatwala Khap. It was a proud moment for me. The mace is usually presented as a trophy to body builders, and is very much a symbol of male pride and strength. That a khap in Haryana presented me with such a symbol serves as a myth buster for the image that khaps cannot be progressive. The Malik Ghatwala Khap presented me with the mace at the Swami Nitya School in Rohtak, saying, " Zindagi ke akhade me bal dikhane ke liye (For showing strength in the arena of life)." The honour came with the pride that the khap showed in me. I was invited to the event wearing my tracksuit from the Rio Paralympics. They also asked me to wear my silver medal around my neck as a show of pride.It was a day of epithets and I was pleasantly surprised when they called me a ' khap beti ' and ' apni beti '. I did not point out that I am technically a ' bahu ' (married into the family). They also called me a ' gaon ka sher '. Time and again village elders have chosen to show their pride in the achievement of a person they see as a daughter. There are some who say village elders and chiefs in Haryana are not progres-

sive. But I see so much acceptance. And a part of the acceptance that I have been showered with, not just by village elders in Haryana, is purely because of what happened at Rio. Sport has helped me receive acceptance, recognition and kindness not just from a khap whose beti I am. And this came to the fore through another incident that happened to me recently. Thankfully, I had won my medal before demonetisation. When I ran out of cash, I went to the ATM. When I reached the ATM, people let me through to the top of the line almost immediately, because they recognised me and remembered that I had won a medal for India at the recent Rio Paralympics. The medal was for India and India has showed me love in return. Sport has given me the chance to do something that brought village elders out in appreciation. It facilitated the context in which they presented a ' khap beti ' with a mace, a predominantly male symbol. And I wish to do my bit to help sportspersons, especially women and especially people with disabilities, use this bridge to wider acceptance and appreciation. I co-founded an NGO called 'Wheeling Happiness' and we work towards promoting sports for differently-abled individuals. Sport has the transformative power to help bridge divides that society can find difficult to heal. Sport has certainly given me more love than I already had in life. And sport provided the opportunity to a khap to prove to the world that not everything they do is regressive.
