Kuldeep demands increase in rooms in Andaman Bhawans Port Blair, May 17: Mr. Kuldeep Rai Sharma, PCC President in a letter addressed to the Lt. Governor, A & N Islands has invited his attention towards the problems being faced by the islanders particularly the patients and students while visiting Chennai, Kolkatta and New Delhi for various purposes due to non availability of accommodation in Administration’s Guest Houses / Bhawans in these cities. In his letter the PCC President pointed out that the Andaman & Nicobar Administration, for the benefit of Islanders, general public, students and Govt. Officials visiting, New Delhi, Chennai & Kolkatta for medical treatment, admission of their children for

higher studies and various other purpose, have constructed Andaman Nicobar Bhawans in all these cities / places long back. With the passage of time, the number of islanders & Govt. officials visiting mainland for medical treatment and other purposes has increased manifold but the number of rooms in these Bhawans remained unchanged. Consequently there is excessive demand of accommodation in all these Guest Houses / Bhawans owned by the A & N administration throughout the year. Mr. Kuldeep said that the people of these islands visiting Chennai, Kolkatta and New Delhi mainly for medical treatment, admission of their children for higher studies and

other purposes are mostly of poor financial background and unable to afford the exorbitant rent of accommodation prevailing in these cities. He requested the Lt. Governor, A & N Islands to look into the matter and initiate appropriate action for increasing accommodation / rooms in these Guest Houses / Bhawans considering the difficulties being faced by the underprivileged people of these islands visiting these cities. The PCC President further opined that, as an interim measure possibility can be explored to hire accommodation/ apartments on lease rent basis till such time the augmentation of the capacity is done by the administration by constructing additional accommodation.

Good train stuck at station for hours after keys go missing REWARI: A goods train halted at the station here for hours as the locomotive's keys went missing. The train, loaded with coal, stood at the Bawal station near Gurgaon for more than eight hours because during the staff changing process, the keys went missing. Since this was near a railroad crossing (phatak), that too was kept closed for hours, resulting in a huge traffic jam and forcing people to take alernate routes to reach their destinations. The train started from Mathura and reached Rewari

where the driver and guards were to be change. When the new shift took charge, the station master was asked for the keys. Attempts were made to contact employees from the earlier shift, but their mobile numbers were not reachable. The information was then given to the control room. The station master tried to arrange for a duplicate set of keys from Jaipur, but until late night, the keys had not been arranged and the train remained at the station.

Awami Ittehad Party will show black flags to PM Modi during Kashmir visit: MLA Langate SRINAGAR: The Independent legislator from Langate constituency in Jammu and Kashmir, Sheikh Abdul Rasheed, said on Thursday that activists of his outfit would show black flags to Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the valley on May 19. "Awami Ittehad Party (AIP) will receive Modi with black flags so as to make the world community realise that India is not serious and sincere in resolving the Kashmir issue and also as a protest against police atrocities in the valley," Rasheed told reporters here. He said his party would salute the prime minister if he offered unconditional dialogue with all stakeholders in Kashmir. "The ceasefire (announced by the central government) is the first step. We will salute the prime minister if he means business and offers unconditional dialogue with the stakeholders, otherwise it is just to hoodwink the

world community," he said. The legislator welcomed the Centre's unilateral ceasefire during the Muslim fasting month of Ramzan but warned of "black sheep (in the police force) trying to sabotage it". "(Chief Minister) Mehbooba Mufti and Modi need not fear the separatists," he said. Ridiculing the state Director General of Police S P Vaid's appeal to families of militants to shun the path of violence, Rasheed termed it as a "childish" statement. "I do not know what compulsion he had to say it, but it is a childish statement. I think it is to provoke the militants," he said.He asked the Centre to make ceasefire permanent.

"The ceasefire should be made permanent. I am sure the other side (militants) will reciprocate. Then India and Pakistan need to talk to each other to address the issue," the MLA said.

Cong-JD(S) move SC against nomination of Anglo-Indian MLA in Karnataka assembly

NEW DELHI: The CongressJD(S) combine today moved the Supreme Court against the decision of Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala to nominate an Anglo-Indian member to the assembly, saying it should not be done till the floor test in the House. In the petition, the Congress-JD(S) has sought a direction that the nomination of Anglo-Indian Vinisha Nero by the governor be set aside till Yeddyurappa undergoes a floor test in the House to prove his majority.

The fresh petition will be heard by a bench comprising justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, which in a historic pre-dawn hearing, allowed the scheduled swearing-in of Yeddyurappa as the chief minister. The strength of the Karnataka assembly is 224 and nomination of one Anglo-Indian member takes it to 225. The petition was filed in the afternoon and is likely to be heard on Friday along with the main petition of the combine on which the apex court in the wee hours today refused to stay the swearing-in of B S Yeddyurappa as the chief minister of the state.
