Spat over October 1 F16 flyover

first_imgA dispute between the main parties over the fact that two Greek F16s took part in the Independence Day celebrations on Monday is totally unnecessary and inexcusable, former House president Yiannakis Omirou said on Wednesday.Akel had criticised the flyover of the Greek aircraft questioning what message it sent to Turkish Cypriots and the international community from a government that claims it wants to be “a truly independent state”.The government hit back within a short time saying the party’s own then presidential candidate Stavros Malas had lauded the move when the aircraft participated in last year’s event. It also said the flyover on Monday was purely symbolic.Omirou, a former defence minister, was not as much concerned that the government and the main opposition party were squabbling, but because the row had side-lined the real problem and that was the fact that Cyprus and Greece had abandoned their 1993 Joint Defence Dogma.The dogma had included joint military exercises on land, sea and air, with the operational coordination of the two countries and the construction of the necessary infrastructure works in Cyprus for the doctrine to work, he said.“The aim was to act as a deterrent, and to strengthen the negotiating capacity of the Republic of Cyprus and the Greek Cypriot side and this doctrine was abandoned in the course of time with disastrous consequences on the national strategy,” he said.The Green Party on Wednesday called the dispute “unhelpful and irrational”. “Of course we all know that engaging in an unrelenting confrontation is a common sport for the two great parties,” it said.“The result of these micro-political games is to create discord and disorientation.” You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related NewsSometimes you do most things right but still end up on the losing side because your opponent is simply better on the day Such was the case for Kolkata Knight Riders against Gujarat Lions at the Eden Gardens on Friday as the visitors’ heavyweight batting line-up chased down a challenging total with relative ease Put into bat KKR rustled up a good score Sunil Narine came in to open the innings with Gautam Gambhir and went on the attack from the word go In a throwback to the Sanath Jayasuriya-Romesh Kaluwitharana days Narine shocked the opposition again with his unrestrained hitting and had them running helter-skelter The second ball of the match was whipped backward of square for a boundary Narine had wild wafts on the next two balls with his two feet cemented at the crease and then clubbed the last two balls of the over for two more boundaries KKR failed to post a 200-plus score despite a very good start IPL/SportzPics The West Indian scored all his runs in fours and sixes as he raced to 42 off 17 before perishing in the fourth over having played one shot too many All that Narine connected went for boundaries and a large part of the rest he played and missed That was the story of Narine’s innings really It was either a hit or a miss; nothing in between And it worked for Kolkata though they would have loved if he could have carried on for a little longer But you really have to say Kolkata got more than what they had bargained for in the few occasions that they had gambled with using Narine as an out-and-out ‘pinch hitter’ at the top of the order Comparisons with Jayasuriya and Kaluwitharana have become inevitable The inimitable Sri Lankan duo had revolutionised the way batting is done especially in limited overs cricket while the field restrictions are on in the mid and late 1990s tearing into bowlers throwing the word ‘caution’ straight out of the window and going over the in-field with gay abandon Narine’s promotion in the batting order has been fuelled by the same objective – to get as many runs as possible in the first six overs till the time you have only two fielders outside the 30-yard circle and hence dent the opposition at the start of the innings itself The comparison with Jayasuriya and Kaluwitharana ends there though as the two Sri Lankans were far more accomplished batsmen who could carry the blitzkrieg for a much longer time But what can’t be denied is that Narine’s batting has had the impact that the team management had envisioned it to have What the whirlwind Narine innings ensured was that the batsmen coming after him could play normal cricket and yet maintain a healthy run rate without having to take too many risks And that’s what Gambhir and Robin Uthappa sought to do Uthappa had struck form with a 39-ball 68 against Sunrisers Hyderabad a few days back and came good on Friday again with 72 off 48 balls stringing together a 69-run partnership with Gambhir (33 off 28 balls) However Kolkata would rue the fact that they could not push on to a bigger score than the 187 they eventually got especially considering the start Narine provided them Having got to 96/1 at the halfway stage 200 looked very much on the cards but the KKR batsmen failed to accelerate in adequate measure Credit must also be given to the Gujarat bowlers to have pulled things back in the middle overs in the KKR innings when James Faulkner Basil Thampi and Ravindra Jadeja sent down some pretty useful overs A lot has been said about Gujarat being a batting-heavy side and the weakness in their bowling hurting them but on Friday the Gujarat bowlers did the crucial job of not letting Kolkata run away with the game Thampi was impressive again and the ball to get rid of the in-form Manish Pandey was an absolute Jaffa A yorker to which the batsman had no answer GL’s celebrated all-rounder Dwayne Bravo feels Thampi would soon play for India and he has a point there Once KKR were restricted to a manageable total the big guns in the Gujarat batting line-up took charge of the match First Aaron Finch (31 off 15 balls) and Brendon McCullum (33 off 17 balls) put together a 42-run partnership and siezed the early initiative and then Suresh Raina played a trademark 46-ball 84 to put paid to any hopes KKR’s hopes of making a comeback All the KKR bowlers went for runs with the most economical being Kuldeep Yadav at 825 runs an over Narine could not recreate his exploits with the bat with the ball as well though the latter is his primary calling He is not the bowler he was in 2012 when he ended up as the Player of the Tournament It was an edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) when nobody read him Since then he had undergone a correction in his action which has impacted his ability to impart fizz to his deliveries as earlier and also generally batsmen have been able to deconstruct his bowling with a fair degree of success Kuldeep was the pick of the Kolkata bowlers and even got two wickets including that of Raina It was a good ploy by Gambhir to hold him back for the middle overs in order to choke the run flow when Gujarat would have needed to keep the runs flowing Kuldeep was introduced only in the 10th over and started well conceding just three runs in his first over Similarly lead pacer Umesh Yadav was also held back and brought on in the 13th over Umesh was the next best bowler on the night after Kuldeep for Kolkata going at a rate only a shade higher than the Chinaman Shakib Al Hasan on the other hand who was drafted into the side for this match in place of Colin de Grandhomme looked rusty and had a forgettable outing giving away 31 runs in his three overs It was perhaps not totally out of place to have Shakib in place of de Grandhomme who would have come with the same skill set as Chris Woakes However on a changed Eden Gardens pitch which is not as conducive to slow bowling as it used to be playing three spinners may not be the ideal option It was therefore a match which Gujarat won by the dint of their abilities the same way KKR won the last time they met Friday’s match was bit of a mirror imageof the earlier match in the tournament between these two teams Gujarat playing at home and batting first had scored 183 and KKR knocked off those runs by virtue of some aggressive batting by Chris Lynn and Gambhir KKR playing at home this time around batted first and got a similar score which the Gujarat batsmen overhauled Kolkata have to accept that it was not their day take the loss on the chin and move on "I would have taken four (wins) out of six games if you had asked me at the start of the tournament" skipper Gambhir said after the match The IPL is a marathon competition and there is still a long way to go KKR should take heart from the fact that they have been one of the top performers so far and should look to iron out the creases and aim for the long haul The Uttar Pradesh government has the blood of 60 children on its hands The saffron robes of its chief minister are tainted with the blot of incompetence insensitivity and as Noble laureate Kailash Satyarthi rightly says the massacre of infants In any other country run by a sensitive and competent government these 63 children could have been easily saved Because they did not die of a sudden calamity or in a tragic incident that could not have been averted Their murder was scripted and executed by the apathetic staff of the hospital and criminal dereliction of duty by everyone in the administrative hierarchy The sequence of events that led to the massacre of 60 children in Gorakhpur’s Baba Raghav Das Medical College since 7 August is a damning indictment of the government machinery First it failed to pay the contractor who supplied liquid oxygen to the hospital running up arrears in excess of over Rs 68 lakh even when as the supplier argued the terms and conditions of the supply agreement said the pending amount would not exceed Rs 10 lakh Then in spite of ultimatums from the supplier that the supply of liquid oxygen would be stopped the hospital management did not make any arrangement to ensure its availability The government and the hospital management did not act even when they were warned that the situation could become grave once the contractor pulls the plug In the end the hospital was probably wilfully turned into a gas chamber for children an asphyxiating hell where death was guaranteed by choking This is murder by negligence massacre by incompetence Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath PTI What is astounding is that the hospital falls in the karma bhoomi of the Uttar Pradesh chief minister the saffron-clad Hindutva pin-up Ajay Singh aka Yogi Adityanath When Adityanath was anointed chief minister of the state his fans sang impromptu paeans to his competence wrote reams of odes to his work ethics He was hailed as a 24X7 worker who had the entire constituency on his speed-dial Obviously the fan-boys don’t know that the tag of the saviour of Hindutva doesn’t count much when the lives of children are at stake It requires real dedication competence swiftness of action and resolve an alert mind and a sensitive heart that screams emergency when innocent lives are at stake The chief minister could have been given the benefit of doubt if the deaths were not in his own backyard Or if he were not aware of the incident But as the Indian Express reports the chief minister had visited the hospital just two days ago — nine children died that day — and inspected its paediatric ward the epicentre of the tragic deaths According to the Indian Express he had also inaugurated a 10-bed ICU a six-bed Critical Care Unit and visited a ward meant for children infected with Japanese encephalitis virus and cases of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) The government’s explanation that the chief minister was not aware of the crisis is either a plain lie or a damning indictment of Adityanath’s work ethics Are we expected to believe that the alleged epitome of competence and round-the-clock hard work doesn’t even know what is going on in his backyard Is the information system under the martinet whose very name reportedly sends a chill down the spine of his staff so weak that even tragedies of epic proportions stay out of the venerable Adityanath’s ear-shots The tragedy in Gorakhpur unfortunately is a reminder of how some things never change in India Even 70 years after Independence hospitals are a mess their finances are mismanaged and the government machinery is so callous that even clear warnings of an impending disaster do not force it into action Life is cheap It can be sacrificed without a shred of remorse or penitence The chalta hai attitude currently being showcased by the Uttar Pradesh government’s explanations — false and misleading — and refusal to accept responsibility for the man-made tragedy remind us that though the colour of robes changes after elections the blots on them remain the same In a milieu where hearts bleed only for cows lynching is reserved only for people suspected of eating beef transporting gau mata and chief ministers have a rapid action force only for saving bovines it is difficult to believe the death of 60 children due to government incompetence would make anybody in the Uttar Pradesh hierarchy lose sleep The game of assigning blames spinning half-truths shielding reputations has already begun Soon a scapegoat somewhere low in the hierarchy would be found and quietly punished Or better still a natural cause would be assigned to these unnatural deaths To rephrase Shakespeare: What need we fear who knows it when none can call our power to account Yet who would have thought so many would have had so much blood on their hands Follow the liveblog here Editor’s note: The people of Assam have been affected to varying degrees by the floods Many in the state depend on agriculture for livelihood but are forced to take other ventures when floods repeatedly ravage their farmland This is the second in a three-part series on how various people in the state are coping with the floods Guwahati: All of 11 Sunita Mali of Khakrabai village in Assam rolls about a thousand beedis every day She quit school in class 5 so she could roll beedis and supplement her family’s income Her mother Rupa says Sunita learnt to roll beedis on her ownAnanda Rai 40 his wife Madhu Rai 25 and daughter Tarani Rai 10 busy making beedi in their home in Baniamari village of Sahebganj Gaon Panchayat Image courtesy Syeda Ambia Zahan "It wasn’t always like this We had enrolled both our children in school But after 2012 everything changed" she says "The flood kept washing our land away and then finally we had nothing left My husband decided that we could no longer feed ourselves just by farming So we began rolling beedis" In Dhubri one of the worst flood-hit districts of Assam the sight of women and children sitting in verandas outside their homes and rolling beedis is not uncommon Firstpost visited all the 10 villages of Sahebganj in Golokganj revenue circle in Dhubri and found that almost all households were engaged in beedi rolling The Gangadhar river which originates in Bhutan flows for 33 km in Dhubri and is responsible for massive floods especially causing huge destruction in the Golakganj revenue circle of the district With most of the population engaged in farming of paddy and jute the villagers always live in the fear of their produce being destroyed and their land being washed away "Depending on farm produce to fill our stomachs was not practical for us Beedi rolling is cheaper easier and more secure" explains Rupa Apela Bibi the president of Sahebganj Panchayat estimates that the last three to four years have seen a sharp rise in the number of beedi rollers in the villages She says there are about 9000 people in Sahebganj panchayat and 70 percent of them earn a living by rolling beedis "It is because due to flood every year people do not want to pursue agriculture as they have been facing a heavy loss for the past 10 years So they have taken up beedi production It does not cost much The blended tobacco and the rolling leaves are provided by the agents" she says As per the report of Assam State Disaster Management Authority last updated on 19 August 6204 hectares of crop area was damaged in 430 villages in six revenue circles of Dhubri district during the recent flood Suleiman Ali 52 from Baniamari village in Sahebganj lost his ancestral land spanning 10 acres in the flood that hit the state in 2012 He explains that at first after the flood waters ruined his paddy farm and left behind sand he decided to cultivate groundnut "That year through my groundnuts farm I made a profit of Rs 60000 double the amount of what I used to make from paddy farming I was very happy but in the floods that hit the village in 2013 the river washed away six acres of my land I was left with nothing again" he says He adds that the responsibility to feed his family led him to a meeting with JN Thakuria a middle agent who would supply raw materials to beedi rollers in the village "Now all six members of my family including my brother my wife and daughter roll beedis We earn Rs 20000-25000 a month I am very happy" he says These middle agents who act as a bridge between the villagers and the beedi companies visit the villagers every day and hand over raw material which includes tobacco rolling leaves and thread The agent gives each of them a daily task and makes sure to collect the said number of beedis at the end of the day JN Agarwala a local agent associated with Assam Beedi Factory a beedi-rolling unit in Dhubri has the contract for Khakrapara village He says the villagers roll more than three lakh beedis every month Agarwala adds that the districts that are worst affected by the floods such as Golokganj Chapor Bilashipara Agomani and Dhubri produce the highest number of beedis Mithu Mali 14 showing the beedis she rolled by that time of the day Image courtesy Syeda Ambia Zahan At present Dhubri has eight registered beedi-making units across the district but this number is higher with many small units not registering themselves According to the Lower Assam Beedi Labourers’ Association the factory owners do so to avoid paying the minimum wages prescribed by the government and provide due facilities to the workers According to the 2015 notification released by the Labour and Employment Department of Assam minimum wages for unskilled workers employed for beedi rolling is Rs 240 per day and Rs 7200 per month Hemanta Debnath the president of the association says there is a violation of labour laws by the agents and beedi unit owners He explains that agents lure villagers who have been severely affected by floods into the beedi rolling "Even though the villagers work through the day they do not get the fixed wages commissioned under the law. For every 1000 beedis they get Rs 100-120 rupees after doing backbreaking work for at least 15 hours a day" he says Firstpost verified this with villagers and found that Rupa who starts works at 5 am ends it only in the evening She has a target to roll 1000 beedis in a day and only then will she earn Rs 100-120 This rate too fluctuates depending on the rate of the raw material that day Dropout rate increasing in schools With workers being paid for every beedi rolled most families force their children to roll beedis to earn extra money According to a survey conducted by the Committee on Welfare of Women and Children tabled in Assam Legislative Assembly in 2016 more than 15000 children in the state are employed in hazardous and non-hazardous industries The report says that 49 percent children between the ages of five-14 years are engaged in some form of child labour higher than the national average of 45 percent It further adds that a chunk of them are into beedi rolling When Firstpost visited the Sahebganj Middle English School the headmaster Mon Bhai Rai said the dropout rate in the school has been steadily increasing for the last three years According to him in 2014 the school had 257 students but now only 150-160 students attend school regularly "Though these students are still enlisted in the school register they stop coming to school after class fourth or fifth When we enquire the children say their parents want them to roll beedis instead of wasting time studying" he says He adds that parents prefer children rolling beedis because they are faster and better "Because their hands are small and swift they are able to roll beedis more efficiently and roll more beedis than the adults For every 1000 beedis a day they are set to make an extra amount of Rs 3000 per month" he says Miguel Das Queah noted child rights activist said the Child Labour Act suffers from several flaws which gives way to children being employed in various activities and letting the employers go unharmed "While the Act prohibits employment of children in any hazardous or non-hazardous occupation and lists beedi production as being hazardous it permits child labour in family or family enterprises And since most of the children are made to work by their families it becomes unpunishable" he says Also read Assam floods aftermath Part 1: Displaced sections of minority community

the larger South Asian region Trump sought a greater involvement from India while criticising Pakistan for tolerating terrorist safe havens and for its support to terrorists The US president has preferred a regional approach for peace in Afghanistan and said the US "can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens for terrorist organisations the Taliban and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond" Pakistan’s foreign office reacted to Trump’s announcement of the new strategy saying the threat to peace and security "cannot be isolated from the complex interplay of geopolitics continued existence of festering disputes and pursuit of hegemonic policies" "Non-resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute remains the primary obstacle to peace and stability in the

am Yuvraj Singh exits Mumbai’s airport on Tuesday (PTI) Related News I very greatly fear I have seen the last of Yuvraj Singh as an India cricketer and it is a thought that fills me with much sadness He has often stopped me in my tracks taken my breath away made me drop whatever I was doing He wasn’t in the business of scoring runs that was mundane he was in the profession of joy When he batted well he struck the ball more cleanly than anyone else his bat swing and the arc it created were a sight to behold There was an elegance about him breaking through from time to time from the swagger that defined him He made you want to watch cricket He struggled too frequently in fact It was as if there was a bug in the software that ran his batting Like with everyone else in the game the bat sometimes resembled an implement it was like a friend he didn’t really get along with but had to walk alongside nonetheless Most often those moments appeared in test cricket; a slightly distant friend he wooed desperately occasionally got a date with but was largely kept at arm’s length If test cricket was the sole parameter of accomplishment Yuvraj Singh might go down as a decent cricketer But it isn’t and it needn’t be True it demands great skill from you and over an extended period but there are other skills that lovers of test cricket in their snobbishness sometimes look down upon Limited overs cricket demands different skills and Yuvraj had those in plenty His treasury was full It was in Nairobi in 2000 that as a slightly gawky youngster he grabbed our eyeballs and imprisoned them His eighty against a powerful Australian team was fresh and invigorating He was one of two that day Zaheer Khan was the other who told us a new generation was on its way In a couple of years Harbhajan Singh and Virender Sehwag would join them They thought differently and they backed themselves Many years later Yuvraj and Zaheer now good friends would embark on a journey of survival put their complaining bodies to the most daunting test and live humbly like they often had to when they started out It would have been the most dramatic screenplay but the clock only moves one way There is nothing more uncompromising Roller-coaster journey Between Nairobi and Dhaka Yuvraj’s journey was a roller-coaster Cricket made him rich beyond imagination but he had to endure much pain He is a prankster and seemingly in love with life but beneath it is a deeply sensitive young man I have met people who are not what they seem to be Yuvraj I suspect is one of those a flashy lifestyle glamorous friends society headlines but a simple sensitive person just beneath I don’t know him beyond conversations in travel and the odd interview but I always suspected there was someone else within him a fact that emerged from the book he wrote after his traumatic experience with cancer Of the many comebacks he made that was the most emotional and the most glorious From a purely cricketing point of view the comeback post cancer hasn’t been very successful but that comeback had nothing to do with cricket at all That a person could go through the ravages of chemotherapy come face to face with the finiteness of life itself dream of enjoying a simply cooked mother’s meal and then walk out to bat for India again makes everything else seem irrelevant Winning the World Cup of 2011 was his crowning glory as a cricketer but coming back to play for India was every bit as stirring Winning the World Cup was proof to the world that he was a fine cricketer returning post cancer was proof to himself that he was a fighter At his best he was a genuine match winner as he showed when he lit up the first World T20 in South Africa And then he returned in 2011 his finest hour to allow Dhoni a higher throne to ascend The overs he gave Dhoni were exactly what the captain needed and he gave India the balance without which the World Cup couldn’t have been won And he did it battling an enemy growing within him that enfeebled him Joy and sadness Yuvraj has given me so much joy and it has been an effort to write about him as an India cricketer in the past tense Once again there will be thoughts swirling in that sensitive mind and he has a right to be upset with people who do crude things in anger There is joy and there is struggle and sadness but it is only a sport and Yuvraj embellished it If he reads this he will walk past me at the IPL and say like he has in the past “You are harsh on me” And I will tell him like I always have “Yuvi I loved watching you bat” I

Ghimire | Updated: June 2 2014 9:33 am It is not known how much the Modi-Koirala meeting dispelled the fear in Nepal’s ‘progressive camp’ that Koirala heads Related News How supportive will Modi’s government be of the process of change that currently lacks direction and consensus Sushil Koirala is already halfway through his first year as prime minister facing the tall order of constitution-writing The coalition government he heads is in shambles and discredited largely over the way eight Supreme Court judges were handpicked by a partisan judicial council and endorsed by the 72-member parliamentary committee that requires a two-thirds majority to reject any or all of them Some committee members grilled some of the would-be judges in camera asking pointed questions about their conduct ranging from polygamy to financial corruption and inefficiency “This is no way to appoint judges First you publicly discredit them and then appoint them This will lead to the collapse of the justice system” says Srihari Aryal a senior SC lawyer Angry about the media coverage of controversies revolving around the new judges and warning that the judiciary will be as discredited as political parties Chief Justice Damodar Sharma told the judges that “a full court will go into media reports and take necessary action against them” If the threat is carried out the judiciary that is now perceived as politically partisan and wanting in institutional conduct will come down heavily on the media and trigger a fallout on the political and constitutional-making processes Koirala backed the judiciary to the hilt and refused to have any review of the recommended names despite a senior judge writing a note of dissent Instead he instructed members of the Nepali Congress in the parliamentary committee to not bow to outside criticism After all he knows that the lack of cooperation within plays a smaller role in constitution-writing External cooperation is more necessary So it was a lucky opportunity for Koirala to rush to New Delhi to attend the swearing-in of Narendra Modi as the Indian prime minister and solicit crucial support from the south in the peace and constitution-making process After all in Nepal’s clearly polarised political camps the UPA and Left forces in India are perceived as the ally of the “progressive forces” and the NDA in general and the BJP in particular as the ally of the “regressive forces” With the power equation changed in Delhi Koirala had to reach out to the new leadership there Certain media reports and opinions have projected Modi as a threat to multiculturalism and by extension to the ongoing radical changes in Nepal It is still not known how much the Modi-Koirala meeting last Tuesday was able to dispel the fear in Nepal’s “progressive camp” that Koirala heads Modi promised all support to developmental activities that Nepal would want from India and hoped that the constitution would be ready within the stipulated timeframe (by mid-January) and stability restored in Nepal Rajnath Singh who has often expressed his unhappiness about the world’s only Hindu kingdom being transformed into a “secular” country chose to leave it to the people of Nepal to decide But Koirala gauged the Hindu sentiment that might dominate the new government by extending an invitation to Modi to visit “Pashupatinath and Muktinath temples at the earliest” an invitation Modi readily accepted He also handed Modi a replica of the Pashupatinath temple as a gift The presence of Ashok Singhal at Rashtrapati Bhavan and the host of saffron-clad sadhus — some of them votaries of a Hindu Nepal — has naturally upset Nepal’s “progressive camp” However the only solace for Koirala was the “best wishes” extended by President Pranab Mukherjee Mukherjee and former PM Manmohan Singh separately told Koirala that things were moving in the right direction in Nepal But will Modi feel the same urge to support the process of change in Nepal that clearly lacks direction and pace on one hand and a consensus-based approach on the other Koirala has reasons to miss the UPA in that sense He had unsuccessfully invited Singh in the midst of India’s elections to Nepal to reiterate India’s support for the changes There is also a move to have Mukherjee invited as the “progressive camp” feels more comfortable with the actors who played a crucial role in bringing about Nepal’s changes eight years ago However the tussle between the media and the judiciary and the latter’s loss of credibility will impact all aspects of constitution-making That may force the international community to review its stance over the last eight years that democracy is about not only raising radical slogans but also holding leaders
