Rahul exhibiting ‘fancy dress Hinduism’, says BJP

first_imgIndore, Oct 29 (PTI) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Monday said Congress president Rahul Gandhi is exhibiting “fancy dress Hinduism” to fool people and demanded action against his party colleague Shashi Tharoor for his “scorpion” remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.The saffron party’s attack on Gandhi came in the backdrop of his frequent visits to temples — the latest being a trip to Ujjain’s Mahakaleshwar temple Monday, ahead of his tour of the politically significant Malwa-Nimar region in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh.The ruling party asked Gandhi to expel Tharoor from the Congress for his controversial remarks against Modi.The Congress MP from Kerala stoked a fresh controversy Sunday, claiming that an unnamed Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader had compared the prime minister to “a scorpion sitting on a Shivling” and termed it as an extraordinarily striking metaphor.”The objectionable statement of Tharoor, who is very close to Rahul Gandhi, has disrespected not only the holy deity of Lord Mahadev, worshipped by crores of Hindus, but also Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”In such a situation, how will he (Gandhi) offer prayers at the Mahakal temple,” BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters here.Alleging that Congress leaders were continuously disrespecting the Hindus by making objectionable statements, Patra demanded that Gandhi apologise for Tharoor’s remarks and expel the 62-year-old UN diplomat-turned-politician from the party.He claimed that after the humiliating defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, a committee headed by former Union minister A K Antony had said the Congress should take care of the Hindus for its political revival as it was losing ground because of its projected image of a “party of Muslims”.advertisement”After the Antony committee’s report, Rahul Gandhi is exhibiting fancy dress Hinduism continuously. To mislead the Hindus, he is sporting a “janeu” (scared thread) over the shirt. We demand that ‘janeudhari’ Rahul Gandhi clarify to which ‘gotra’ (clan) does he belong to,” Patra said.He also said since Gandhi had not given any answer to this question, people were calling him a “Vatican gotra ka Brahmin”.The Congress chief’s mother, United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi, is an Italian by birth.

India likely to add 273 million people between 2019 and 2050 UN

first_imgUnited Nations: India, projected to surpass China as the world’s most populous country around 2027, is expected to add nearly 273 million people between now and 2050 and will remain the most populated country through the end of the current century, a UN report said on Monday.’The World Population Prospects 2019: Highlights’, published by the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, said the world’s population is expected to increase by two billion people in the next 30 years, from 7.7 billion currently to 9.7 billion in 2050. Also Read – Cong may promise farm loan waiver in HaryanaThe world’s population could reach its peak around the end of the current century, at a level of nearly 11 billion, according to the study, which presents the main results of the 26th round of the UN’s global population estimates, projections and global demographic patterns. The new report released here said that more than half of the projected increase in the global population up to 2050 will be concentrated in just nine countries, led by India and followed by Nigeria, Pakistan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Indonesia, Egypt and the US. Also Read – Modi formed OBC commission which earlier govts didn’t do: ShahThe report highlighted that “disparate population growth rates among the world’s largest countries will re-order their ranking by size. India is projected to surpass China as the world’s most populous country around 2027, according to current projections made in the report. “India is expected to add nearly 273 million people between 2019 and 2050, while the population of Nigeria is projected to grow by 200 million. Together, these two countries could account for 23 per cent of the global population increase to 2050,” the report said. Previous UN projections had estimated that India will surpass China as the world’s most populous country as early as 2022. The 2017 world population report, released by the UN two years ago, had estimated that the population of India will surpass that of China’s by around 2024. In its 24th round of estimates released in 2015, the UN had projected that India will become more populous than China by 2022. China, with 1.43 billion people in 2019, and India, with 1.37 billion, have long been the two most populous countries of the world, comprising 19 and 18 per cent, respectively, of the global total in 2019. They are followed by the United States of America, with 329 million in 2019, and Indonesia, with 271 million, the 2019 report said. The report said that after this re-ordering between 2019 and 2050, the ranking of the five largest countries is projected to be preserved through the end of the century, when India could remain the world’s most populous country with nearly 1.5 billion inhabitants, followed by China with just under 1.1 billion, Nigeria with 733 million, the US with 434 million, and Pakistan with 403 million inhabitants. It further said that in 2019, around 40 per cent of the world’s population lives in intermediate-fertility countries, where women have on average between 2.1 and four births over a lifetime. Average lifetime fertility of 2.1 live births per woman is roughly the level required for populations with low mortality to have a growth rate of zero in the long run. Intermediate-fertility countries are found in many regions, with the largest being India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Mexico, the Philippines and Egypt. The report also confirmed that the world’s population is growing older due to increasing life expectancy and falling fertility levels, and that the number of countries experiencing a reduction in population size is growing. By 2050, one in six people in the world will be over age 65 (16 per cent), up from one in 11 in 2019 (9 per cent). The number of persons aged 80 years or over is projected to triple, from 143 million in 2019 to 426 million in 2050. PTIlast_img read more

Dont bother about criticism Assam NRC exercise to be completed by Aug

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday brushed aside criticism and statements made in the Assam Assembly and outside relating to the exercise carried out for National Register of Citizens (NRC) and said it wanted the deadline of August 31 be adhered to. A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R F Nariman referred to the report of Assam NRC coordinator Prateek Hajela in which he mentioned about leakage of information on it in Assam Assembly and certain statements made by leader of opposition there and Santanu Bharali, legal advisor to Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The bench, which is monitoring the Assam NRC exercise, said it was not concerned with any of such statements and was only looking at the entire exercise of NRC being completed within the deadline of August 31. “You (Hajela) have drawn our attention about the statement made by the leader of opposition regarding revealing of information in the Assembly and also about press statement by Santanu Bharali on the issue of secrecy of the data,” the bench said. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “As far as the statement of the leader of opposition is concerned, we do not need to go into it. When some orders are being passed by the judges or the court, some people criticise them,” the apex court said. “Our orders, our actions are being subjected to debates and criticism every moment. We are not bothered by it. If we will go into all this, we will never complete the task,” it added. The top court said it was not bothered about what was being said about the NRC exercise. “What we want is that let the NRC come out within the deadline of August 31. Who like it, who do not like it, we do not bother,” the bench said. At the outset, the bench interacted with NRC coordinator and told him that perhaps, he is seeking suggestion for maintaining the secrecy of the data collected during the exercise. During the hearing, the apex court was told that around 33,000 people coming from an area in Kamrup district have to be verified after it was noted that there have been complaints of inadequacy in issuing notices. The bench also deliberated on provisions of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2003 which have been applied for considering the individuals under the NRC. The bench said it will pass an order as to whether the inclusion will be based on section 3 (1)(a), 3(1)(b) and section 3 (1)(c) of the Act after receiving a note from Hajela. On July 23, the top court had extended the deadline for publication of the final NRC in Assam by a month to August 31 while rejecting the pleas seeking permission for 20 per cent sample re-verification. The Centre and the Assam government had sought permission for sample re-verification to find out wrongful inclusions, especially in districts bordering Bangladesh, and exclusions of persons in the NRC which was to be published by July 31. The first draft of the NRC for Assam was published on the intervening night of December 31, 2017 and January 1, 2018 in accordance with the top court’s direction. Names of 1.9 crore people out of the 3.29 crore applicants were incorporated then. Assam, which had faced influx of people from Bangladesh since the early 20th century, is the only state having an NRC which was first prepared in 1951.last_img read more

UNbacked highlevel meeting plans to reverse alarming climb in the number of

The Food Security for All meeting in Madrid – co-chaired by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Prime Minister of Spain, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero – is slated for 26-27 January 2009, and brings together governments, private entities and civil society groups.Participants are expected to start with a review of progress in achieving food security since the High-Level Conference on World Food Security in Rome last June convened in the face of soaring food prices, and go on to define a road map for the future to tackle hunger more effectively.“Another thing that is likely to happen in Madrid is that a number of countries will indicate a long-term plan to commit more resources for agriculture and food security,” said David Nabarro, coordinator of the Secretary-General’s High-Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis, in a press briefing at UN Headquarters.Mr. Nabarro told journalists that the increase in the number of hungry people was due to volatile food prices in 2008 with sharp increases in parts of the year, particularly in the price of rice, and because of difficulties with access to food, caused by warfare, disruptions to supplies and the impact of climate change reducing productivity in certain parts of the world.“Agriculture itself has suffered because there has been a big reduction in investment over the last 30 years and the 420 million or so small-holder producers who farm less than about two hectares of land are facing particular difficulties,” he said.The UN system, coordinated by High-Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis, has taken a twin track approach to tackling global hunger. “First, feed the hungry, making sure that the supplies of food for those who are dependent on them to survive remain satisfactory,” Mr. Nabarro explained. The World Food Programme (WFP) had to increase its beneficiaries to about 100 million a year and increase its income dramatically by about $2 billion, meaning its 2009 budget totals $5.2 billion.The second track of the work addresses some of the underlying structural problems in the food sector by improving agricultural development, changing the way in which trading systems work “and improving the functioning of markets for the world’s poor,” said Mr. Nabarro.“We’ve also called for much greater attention to bio-fuels and the turning of cereal and other food stuffs into bio-fuels because we believe that that too creates an unstable situation.”Even though commodity prices have come down substantially in recent months, Mr. Nabarro warned that “The worldwide economic crash did not put an end to the food crisis: instead, it complicates and exacerbates the situation.” The two-day Madrid conference intends to establish a partnership for food security, made up of governments, regional bodies, civil society, businesses, international agencies, development banks and donors. 16 January 2009With the number of undernourished around the world rising to almost 1 billion in 2008, threatening one of the United Nations’ prime goals of halving global hunger by 2015, heads of State and other top leaders will gather in Madrid later this month to draw up plans to boost global food production. read more

Chinese girl offers virginity for an iPhone 4

first_imgEarly this month we heard the story of a Chinese teenage boy who was so desperate to get an iPad 2 he decided to sell a kidney. The cash he would get in return for the organ was more than enough to cover the cost of the tablet. What he didn’t count on was a few complications following surgery and the anger of his mother when she realized what he’d done.Now the desire to own Apple gadgets in China has sparked another controversy. This time it’s not a boy selling organs, but a girl offering her virginity. In exchange, all she wants in the man to buy her an iPhone 4.AdChoices广告Using the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, called Weibo, she explained that she desperately wants an iPhone 4, but her father has said she can’t have one. So she’s decided to take matters into her own hands and is using her body and virginal status to get what she wants.We don’t know her exact age, but do know she was born in the 90s potentially making her a young teenager. Regardless, her offer isn’t being met with a lot of enthusiasm on Weibo with many posting negative comments. However, there’s always going to be someone out there willing to take her up on the offer, and we do fear for her safety as well as how much she will regret this after the event.No smartphone is worth a girl’s virginity and we hope she comes to her senses before going through with the act. We also see a marketing opportunity here for Apple: give the girl a free iPhone and let her keep that virginity for a real partner she falls in love with. Although that might just spark more girls offering the same in the hope Apple will come to their rescue too.More at The Korea Herald, via SAIlast_img read more

Guardiola Van Dijk was well worth £75m

first_imgManchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes Virgil van Dijk’s reported record £75m deal to Liverpool was worth itThe Reds signed Van Dijk in January 2017 from fellow Premier League side Southampton by making him the world’s most expensive defender for £75m.The Netherlands captain has since formed a key part of the Liverpool team that has gone their opening 20 league games of this season undefeated with just eight goals conceded in the process.“He’s an exceptional player,” said Guardiola, according to Evening Standard.“When a player costs whatever it costs and it works, it is well worth it.“When you pay less and it doesn’t work, it is so expensive. If he can play every three days with no injuries and plays consistently, it is well worth it.”Liverpool, who are chasing a first league title since 1990, could take a major step forward in the Premier League title race with victory against City tonight.“We know how important it (the match) is,” added Guardiola.“If we are not able to win, especially if we lose – 10 points, goal difference 11 – if they continue that run it will be so difficult.“It’s almost a final for us.

That is why it is nice after what we have achieved in the last decade to still be up there.“My feeling is last season it was a little bit easier to maintain that hunger because 80 per cent of the players had not won anything in our lives.“I can feel what they feel, the Liverpool players. After 29 years not winning the Premier League, to be there to win the Premier League. I understand. And I said to the players, that it’s difficult to handle that.“I know what happened after Chelsea and Leicester won the league, the year after was tough.“We’ve avoided that we’ve got a lot of points, we are fighting, but the opponents have been incredible.“We don’t play every week against Liverpool, that’s why we have to focus when we drop.“During the season we won a lot of things, you forget what you have to do, we’ve done exceptional, we are there, we have a lot of games to go and I think everyone will lose points, even Liverpool.“There are a lot of competitions, a lot of targets and every game will be tough, we’ll see what happens in the future.”The City and Liverpool match will take place at the Etihad Stadium with kick-off set for 21:00 (CET).last_img read more
