FREDERICTON – New Brunswick’s premier says his government will introduce a carbon pricing model that helps combat climate change while respecting his province’s economic realities.“We will establish a carbon price that minimizes the impact on consumers, calls on large industry to reduce emissions or pay its fair share, and establishes a climate fund with dedicated investments to combat the effects of climate change,” Brian Gallant said Tuesday.He made the comments as Lt.-Gov. Jocelyne Roy-Vienneau delivered his government’s throne speech, opening a new session of the provincial legislature.Despite the commitment to move forward on carbon pricing during the current session, the government still hasn’t chosen a model to use.“We’re going to ensure we take the time necessary and we make the decision based on all of the evidence before us and all of the other different models and approaches that have been used to come up with a system that will work here in New Brunswick to combat climate change, all the while making sure economic growth is at the forefront of our efforts,” Gallant told reporters.Green Leader David Coon said the government should be having a public discussion on climate change and carbon pricing, rather than just unveiling a chosen model.“We should have had a public debate about it by now because there are so many ways to do carbon pricing wrong that hurts people and business and other ways to do it right. They’re not willing to engage in that public discussion. That’s frustrating and dangerous,” he said.Coon said it should be easy to regulate carbon emissions because there are only two large industries that emit carbon in any amount — power plants owned by NB Power, and an Irving Oil refinery.Meanwhile Progressive Conservative Leader Blaine Higgs said carbon pricing can be avoided. Higgs said he would impose emission limits as a means of combating climate change, and any violators would face hefty fines.“I would argue that if I’m meeting the standards of environmental targets then there isn’t any grounds for the federal government just to say tax the people more anyway,” he said.In neighbouring Nova Scotia, the provincial government introduced legislation last month.Nova Scotia officials said the goal would be to set declining greenhouse gas caps each year until 2022 that would correspond to projected emissions levels resulting from the federal government setting a carbon price that will rise to $50 a tonne by 2022.That price will be set at $10 a tonne beginning next year.On Monday, the British Columbia government announced plans to introduce climate legislation next spring that aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent below 2007 levels over the next 13 years.B.C. is set to increase its carbon tax by $5 per tonne next April, raising the tax to $35 per tonne.Earlier this month, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister said it appears the federal government has the right to force a carbon tax on the provinces, but there may be some wiggle room when it comes to the exact amount, especially if emission reduction targets are being met.Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall has said he will fight the tax proposal, possibly through a lawsuit.New Brunswick’s throne speech Tuesday offered an outline of what else to expect from the Liberal government during the final year of their mandate.In the speech, Vienneau said the government plans to help grow the economy by further reducing the small business tax rate and launching a new strategy aimed at maintaining and growing New Brunswick’s population.The speech also said the government plans to spend more on educational infrastructure, introduce legislation to deal with the legalization of recreational marijuana, and help seniors stay in their own homes longer.The speech makes no mention of a recent property assessment scandal that saw some assessments double, but Gallant said he’s waiting for the auditor general to complete her review of the system before making any changes.
Amnesty International says the global community should form a united front with Canada and speak out to protect two recently arrested women, including the sister of jailed blogger Raif Badawi.Genevieve Paul, the director of Amnesty’s francophone branch, points out that pressure is put on the Saudi government when news of such arrests becomes public.“I don’t think it will worsen the situation because very often when we make evident unjust imprisonments, like the case of Samar Badawi, that increases their protection and increases pressure on the government,” she said in an interview Monday.Amnesty International has said Badawi’s sister was recently detained along with Nassima al-Sada, another prominent female activist.Paul pointed to the case of Raif Badawi as an example of how putting international pressure on the Saudis can have an impact.“He was sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in prison, he received 50 lashes in 2015 and he could receive others, but he hasn’t,” she said.“We do believe that this is because of continuous pressure and visibility on Raif’s case so we’re really hoping that more states speak out on Samar Badawi and all other activists.”Paul stressed the situation is worse when the government does what it wants in secret and is not singled out for alleged human rights violations.“Clearly the aggressive reaction of the Saudi government shows that it’s been disturbed,” she added.Saudi Arabia said Sunday it was ordering Canada’s ambassador to leave the country and freezing all new trade and investment transactions with Canada in a spat over human rights.Paul said the Saudi government knows there are serious human rights violations in the country.“It shows the real colours of the regime, and the international community should toughen its tone against the Saudi government,” she said.The Amnesty spokeswoman noted a ban on women drivers was lifted in June, but that a number of activists who campaigned for the right to drive were arrested and face up to 20 years in prison.“That’s proof there’s double talk, it’s proof that there is no real reform in the country,” she said. “On the contrary, the repression has intensified.”She reiterated that Ottawa should suspend the sale of armoured vehicles to the Saudis, claiming that Amnesty still has strong reasons to believe they are being used in Yemen to commit serious human rights violations.“We’ve been saying that without a serious human rights evaluation, we should not be transferring any military aid, any arms to Saudi Arabia,” Paul said.Ensaf Haidar, Raif Badawi’s wife, who lives in Quebec with her three children, said Monday she was surprised when she heard about the two new arrests.Haidar and her children became Canadian citizens this past Canada Day.
Advertisement Facebook Paul is an actor represented by Anderson Talent Management. He has appeared in Film, TV and Commercial projects.We chatted with Paul recently, check out the Q and A below:As a child, did you want to be an actor, or did it fall into place through other activities?As a child , I never really thought about being an actor. I did grow up in an entertainment family. My father’s hobby was as a professional pantomime(lip sync) artist and my brother is a professional ventriloquist. I followed in my father’s footsteps and at age 9, created my own lip sync show under the name of Mr.Mimic. Our father was our agent and manager and often the three of us would be on the same bill with other performers. It was this experience that gave me the taste of live performing for others. I learned about professionalism and that it’s a “hurry up and wait” business. I learned how things worked back stage behind the scenes. I performed that for about 4 years and then continued to be a “roadie” for my father for a number of years during school on the weekends. Who inspired you to follow your dream to pursue acting?It wasn’t until grade twelve when I got involved in the theatre arts program and performed in our high school musical that I thought I would want to work in theatre all my life. I attended post secondary in theatre arts, and although it was more on the technical side. I enjoyed it and learned lots but missed the performance side. It wasn’t until 27 years later that I re-trained and I was fortunate enough to find representation with Anderson Talent.What challenges have you faced in the entertainment industry? What has been your most rewarding experience?Some of the challenges that I am faced with is auditioning with actors that have been performing since childhood. In the same token, there is a huge opportunity for my demographic as some of these performers have retired or become less busy. And in most cases have become great mentors within this industry with coaching, teaching etc.My most rewarding experience is difficult to assess as I am grateful for all of the projects I have had an opportunity to work on. I did get to work on a film with my son so that was quite special.What is your favourite type of character to play?My favourite type of character to play is the bad guy! It’s so opposite to who I am in real life. It is fun to play. The truth is that I like the challenge of freeing myself up enough to play any character presented to me.What market do you currently work in? Are there other areas you would like to work?I primarily work out of the Toronto market in Film, Television, TV, Commercial, Commercial Print and Voice work. I’ve discovered there are so many branches on the entertainment tree that maybe someday I might get involved in scouting,casting,or executive producing. I love to paint and draw so who knows maybe special effects make-up!! Or scenic painting.What advice would you give to someone new trying to make it in the acting industry?I would like to think that actors are doing it because it is their passion, not for fame or fortune. You need to build up your skills and training first before you can even begin to seek representation or audition for roles. Even then when you get an agent, you need to be prepared to work harder than they do to brand yourself. Its a two-way streak. Take workshops, Improv classes, always be working on your craft. Write stories, make short films, anything to keep you involved. Treat it like a business, its show “business” not show up or show off. Treat all auditions the same you would a job interview. Have patience, even though your career may not be where you want it to be right now. When you complete an audition, forget about it afterwards. You will drive yourself unnecessary stress. Also don’t look for validation in your work.What fuels your passion?The whole process I find rewarding. I enjoy auditioning for different roles and different mediums, networking with fellow actors and industry personal. And if I am blessed to book a job, the complete production process and seeing the client happy with the final product.What is something about you that most people would never guess?Tough question!!… I don’t know… my older brother and sister were adopted. Growing up I was jealous of that and wanted to be adopted too!If you were to do it all over again, would you do things exactly the same? Do you have any regrets? Successes that make you proud?I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve learned so much, and I continue to learn and improve my craft whenever I can. I used to think that I should have found my passion earlier, but I realized that life gets in the way for the positive: Raising a family and running two successful franchises the last 23 years. I have surrounded myself with a great team whom I’m very proud of. This has allowed me to pursue my passion today. I’m very proud that I have tried my best to be a very generous and giving actor, not only to my fellow actors but to EVERYONE that is involved in a project or production. It truly is a team effort and the reality is that it’s the crew behind the scenes that makes us actors look good.

Asansol: BJP MP Babul Supriyo says his friendship with Moon Moon Sen goes back a long time but he is disappointed that his Trinamool Congress rival is resorting to personal attacks and also invoking her dead mother for votes. The two are locked in a straight contest in this Lok Sabha constituency, which goes to polls on April 29. “Initially, I thought being foreign educated and Suchitra Sen’s daughter, she would shy away from personal attacks. From whatever she has said in the last 10 days or so, I knew that this would happen once she starts spending time with TMC leaders… But I never expected her to do so soon,” Supriyo told PTI in an interview. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja In his office-cum-home in Mohishila, dishevelled, pouring over papers Supriyo looks tired. He says he could hardly sleep a wink on several previous nights as there was some problem that he had to deal with – be it workers being beaten up or raids being conducted by the police. “I do not want to engage in gutter politics. The entire discourse here is one of intimidation and I am not going to be part of it,” he says. Supriyo won this seat in 2014 defeating TMC’s Dola Sen while Moon Moon Sen was a giant slayer in Bankura, beating nine-time MP Basudev Acharya. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway Sen has moved from Bankura to Asansol this time but Supriyo dismisses her rival’s prospects. “Will she ever be able to go back to Bankura? Why did she flee Bankura and come to Asansol. She did nothing there. Look at the social media jokes about her. “She is calling workers from Bihar police ka khabri and calling me a servant. She is invoking her dead mother for votes… It’s deplorable. Why would people vote for Suchitra Sen’s soul’s peace? When did Suchitra Sen becomes TMC’s. She has got a lot of love and adulation from the people when she was alive and rather than be happy, her soul would be very sad when she sees her daughter in a mafia party flanked by coal mafias,” argues Supriyo. Moon Moon Sen had created a storm when while campaigning in Amritnagar area here when she described the Bihari population in Bengal as “police informers”. The colliery belt of Asansol has a considerable number of non-Bengali, particularly Bihari, population. Again at another rally, Moon Moon had urged people to vote for her so it would bring peace to her mother’s departed soul. She has been using her mother’s name frequently in her campaign speeches. “I am Suchitra Sen’s daughter. When I come to Asansol, I feel her beside me,” she said in that rally. Late for his meetings, Supriyo steps out of his flat, even as dozens of people wait for him – people who need medical aid, his party workers who need his signature and even young girls waiting for a selfie. Supriyo helps out most, referring some to his office workers, as he hops into a waiting SUV. While travelling through Asansol town, Supriyo waves at people and at a petrol pump, stops to chat with the attendants, making sure to tell them that the central forces are in all booths so they should come and exercise their franchise. Coming back to Sen, Supriyo recalls how in 1992, he was part of an album by HMV where he had sung for Tapas Pal, a TMC MP, and Moon Moon Sen. “I think it was titled ‘Antakshari’ and surprisingly Tapas Pal and Moon Moon Sen featured in it and I sang all the songs. So, our friendship goes back a long time. “But now I would definitely not speak to her if I see her doing social events or while campaigning. I am absolutely disappointed and in many ways infuriated by the way she has carried herself,” he says. Sen could not be reached despite repeated calls to seek her version of their friendship. Ask Supriyo if politics has even changed him and he says, “I was always friendly. I always lived life like this. I think I have become a better person in terms of anger management, patience. So politics has helped me improve.” “I always sang ‘kuch to log kahenge’… with all my heart. But now, when I sing it, people say there is much more effect,” he says.
Kathmandu: Two Indian climbers, including an Indian Army soldier, have died and another has gone missing in Nepal after one of them successfully scaled the world’s highest peak Mount Everest, the expedition organiser said Friday, days after two mountaineers from the country perished in the Himalayan nation. Army soldier Ravi Thakar, 28, was found dead inside his tent at Camp IV on Mount Everest early Friday while Narayan Singh died at Camp IV on Thursday night when he was climbing down from the 8,485-meter Mount Makalu summit, world’s fifth highest mountain. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh Dipankar Ghos, 52, from Kolkata went missing from above Camp IV while returning from the Mount Makalu summit, said Mingma Sherpa, Chairman at Seven Summit Treks. A search team, which reached the area from where the climber is suspected to have gone missing, however, failed to trace him, Sherpa said. Ghos climbed Mount Everest in 2011 and has also scaled Mount Kanchenjunga, Mount Lhotse, Mount Manaslu and Mount Dhaulagiri among other peaks. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad Thakar died after he suffered from high altitude sickness. “Fellow climbers found him dead inside the tent,” Sherpa was quoted as saying by The Himalayan Times. Ravi was part of an eight-member expedition led by renowned Irish climber Noel Richard Hanna. He along with other members made it to the summit of Mount Everest on Thursday morning. Another member of the same expedition Seamus Sean Lawless from Ireland slipped from the balcony area while descending from the summit point. “Fate of the missing Irish climber is still unknown,” Sherpa said. “Indian climber Narayan Singh died in Mt Makalu. He died at camp 4 while descending the summit,” Nepal Tourism Ministry official Mira Acharya told PTI. Two Indian climbers from West Bengal – Biplab Baidya (48) and Kuntal Karar (46) – died in Nepal on Wednesday due to high altitude sickness near the summit of Mount Kanchenjunga, the world’s third tallest peak. Another climber from Chile is missing from above Camp IV of Mount Kanchenjunga since Wednesday evening. Makalu is the fifth highest mountain in the world. It is located in the Mahalangur Himalayas 19-kilometer southeast of the 8,848-meter Mount Everest, on the border between Nepal and Tibet Autonomous Region, China. Hundreds of climbers flock each year to Nepal – home to several of the world’s highest mountains, to scale Himalayan peaks during the spring season that begins around March and ends in June.
People that aren’t part of the video game culture never seem to understand why something like this is drool worthy to a gamer. Pictured above is a handmade, life-sized replica of the famous Gravity Gun from Valve’s Half-Life games, arguably one of the best first person shooters ever created.Artist Harrison Krix, owner of Volpin Props created this one-of-a-kind model for Penny Arcade’s charity, Child’s Play. It will be auctioned off this week to the highest bidder, with all proceeds going towards the fundraising goal. Before you get your hopes up of winning this incredible piece of art, Krix’s replica of the Portal gun from last year went for “twice what his car his worth”. Expect to part with a lot of your hard earned cash if you want to be the proud owner.Taking five weeks and countless hours of work, Krix described this project as one that he has wanted to do for a long time, but was intimidated by the level of intricacy required. He wisely noted that if he got anything wrong he would have a large number of gamers letting him know. The full creation process will be released in the coming weeks, but you can tell how much effort went into making the replica look as real as possible. Just by looking at the picture you can almost feel the power of the Xen Crystal lighting he put into the barrel.Besides making one of the coolest pieces of gaming art we’ve ever seen, Krix wanted to make sure he provided something that was going to bring a large amount to the Child’s Play charity. If you are unfamiliar with Child’s Play, it’s an outstanding organization. Founded by the guys behind Penny Arcade, it’s a drive to provide children’s hospitals around the world with video gaming equipment. Children that are in a participating hospital for an overnight or longer stay can request a console or portable system to help them pass the time while they get treated.If you’re a gamer, it’s a great charity to support, especially as many of the kids that benefit from the drive are seriously ill. To date Child’s Play has raised over 1 million dollars this year. It’s not too late to donate, and if you have the scratch, you could always try to win the Gravity Gun via proxy auction!Read more at Volpin Props
Once Upon a Time Builds Fun Lore Around a Seattle LandmarkOnce Upon a Time’s Final Battle Was the Happiest Ending Once Upon a Time always has an exceptionally long mid-season break compared to other shows. That can sometimes be a problem, given that the show’s lore is so complicated. Past seasons have dealt with this by breaking the story up into two mini-arcs. Each half typically has a self-contained story that gets wrapped up over the course of about 11 episodes. That meant there wasn’t a lot you had to remember once the show came back from its long hiatus. One second in, and you’d know they were going to the Underworld or to Oz or Neverland. That wasn’t the case this time, which led to a thoroughly average episode.Very little was resolved in the mid-season finale back in December. Snow White and Prince Charming are still dealing with the Evil Queen’s sleeping curse. The Queen was transformed into a snake and locked in a cage. While that conveniently gets her out of the way for the rest of the story to move forward, who wants to bet she’ll escape before the year’s out? Emma and Regina are trapped in an alternate universe, and Emma is still going to die at the hands of a hooded figure, who we learned to be Gideon, Belle and Gold’s son.That’s a lot of balls still up in the air as we begin the second half of the season. So naturally, it begins by addressing none of them and showing us Emma’s childhood. Young Emma is living on the streets in Minneapolis. She’s about to burn some pages from “The Ugly Duckling” for heat when a young boy stops her. He convinces her not to burn his favorite childhood story and brings her to the police station where she gets to choose a name for herself. So that’s where the “Swan” in Emma Swan comes from.Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan and Lana Parrilla as Regina (Photo via ABC)Now, back to the present. Emma and Regina are now stuck in the alternate reality where the original Storybrooke curse never happened. The portal back to the real world is closed, and Robin Hood is robbing them. The robbery is interrupted by Henry, who is somehow even more insufferable in this world. Robin escapes, and Regina and Emma hide from the boy. Once he passes, they set about finding a way to get back home.They find Pinocchio and ask him to build another magic wardrobe to take them across dimensions. He grabs his tools, but Regina has slipped out. Somehow in the span of two seconds, she’s written an entire page-long note instructing Emma to find a way home. She has gone to find out if Robin is better off without her. On the one hand, awww. On the other, let it go, Regina, there are bigger tasks at hand.Regina finds Robin at a bar, and her very presence clears the place out, allowing them to have a private moment. She asks if he’s happy, and he claims he is. She’s about to leave when he asks why she cares. Their sweet moment doesn’t last all that long. The Sheriff of Nottingham arrives and captures both of them, slipping a magic-blocking cuff on Regina. Being in custody gives them more time to talk, and Robin hears about what his life would have been with Regina. Regina learns that Marian died a while ago, leaving Robin lonely, unhappy and stealing for himself. They’re rescued by Rumplestiltskin, but only so he can kill Regina himself. Apparently, in this world, the Evil Queen starved Belle to death. He’s a little bitter about that. He locks them up, but they escape.Eion Bailey as Pinocchio (Photo via ABC)Meanwhile, Emma and Pinocchio are searching for the magic tree the wardrobe was made from when they run into Hook. But instead of the dashing pirate we’re all used to, the Hook in this world has a beer belly and messy shoulder-length gray hair. A pretty funny fight ensues where Emma easily defeats Hook. Unfortunately, Pinocchio’s chisel is broken, as is his confidence in himself. This detour ultimately proves meaningless, as Emma can convince Pinocchio to give it another go by believing in him. Along the way, she finds a chest with her name on it. Inside is a wooden Swan Pinocchio carved for her, meaning that he was the boy at the beginning of the episode.Pinocchio makes a new magic wardrobe just in time for Regina and Robin to return to them. Robin gives Regina a feather to remember him by, but Emma convinces her to take Robin back to Storybrooke. For a moment, it looks like he doesn’t make it through, but of course, he does. If he didn’t, the entire episode would have been pointless.While all this was going on, Storybrooke was dealing with the appearance of the hooded figure looking to kill Emma. Charming resolves to keep his wife asleep until he fixes everything. Good luck with that. Belle and Gold learn that their son wants to kill the savior so he can take her power and save a man held captive by the Black Fairy. Belle informs the rest of the town of the figure’s identity, while it appears that Gold is trying to help Gideon kill the savior. By the end, it turns out he’s trying to encourage Gideon to choose another way. He doesn’t want his son to become a murderer.Giles Matthey as Gideon (Photo via ABC)After Emma returns to Storybrooke, she’s confronted by Gideon and the scene starts to look a lot like Emma’s vision. Of course, the clothes are different, and Regina is there, so we know this isn’t the moment. Gideon freezes everyone but Emma in place and is about to stab her, but Emma can use her magic to defeat him and break his sword. She comes close to cutting his throat with a broken sword piece but backs off at Gold’s urging. We all knew she wouldn’t straight up murder someone like that anyway. Gideon disappears, defeated for now, but he’ll be back. As the episode ends, Belle and Gold agree to work together to save their son.This really wasn’t the best episode for the series to return with. The alternate reality could have been really interesting, or at least provided for the goofy, insane fun we’ve come to expect from this series. Instead, aside from the one funny moment with alt-Hook, it felt largely pointless. It was just an excuse to get Robin back for Regina. While I’m happy for her that he’s back, it made the rest of the episode inconsequential. Even the first meeting between Emma and Gideon felt anticlimactic. It wasn’t a terrible episode; it definitely had its moments. It just lacked anything special.Get caught up on OUAT with Hulu now. Stay on target
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he would have chosen the opportunity of having to beat Napoli to qualify for the second round of the UEFA Champions League.The former Borussia Dortmund boss says he would have taken this current situation of needing to win at Anfield to qualify from their group.“Yeah, that was from all the bad news of getting that group, the only good news was that we have the last game at home,” Klopp said, according to the club’s official website.“It was not only in our hands that we have still the chance to go through, we know how difficult it will be and Napoli is for sure in a better position – they only need a draw or they can lose and are still through, but they deserved it.”Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“We need to be really happy about the chance we still have. If someone gives you a chance, it is all about you to use it. That’s exactly what we want to try. From that point of view, it is all good.”“Even Belgrade played a different role in the group than probably a lot of people would have expected – they did really well. That’s the group, that’s how it is, we have a chance and we will try everything to get that chance.”“We know the result(s) we need and it’s quite difficult. Napoli are good in possession and good at counter-attacking as well. They are a typical Italian team, good in defending. That’s a big challenge but it’s football and if something special is possible, then it is here. That’s why we should try it.”
Ex-striker Teddy Sheringham is certain that Manchester United’s legendary 1999 treble-winning team would have had a positive effect on Paul PogbaBack in the 1998/99 season, United won an unprecedented treble by claiming the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson.The star-studded side featured the likes of Sheringham, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Peter Schmeichel and even current interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – who famously scored an injury-time winner in their 2-1 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.And Sheringham believes Pogba would be worthy of featuring in the team and added that he believes the United stars of that generation would have ensured he focused on winning rather than showing off.“I think he would because he is a very talented player,” Sheringham told Stadium Astro.“He would have been brought back down to earth at the right times when he’s… not stepping out of line, because you’re not stepping out of line, you’re just not doing the right things at the right times.Solskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“That’s what made our team so good. We did all the right things at the right times.“There’s a lot of players who do the wrong things constantly. You have to do the right things at the right times for you to be part of a team.“I think he would have been told by the senior members, ‘pass the ball. Stop showing how good you are. We play as a team’.“The more you keep telling them, you hope that the penny drops.“There are always times to do that bit of flashiness, to get you out of a problem on the football pitch, but not every time you get it.”
“This is the right time for the country. The expectations of the world from the country are growing. We feel that the country has now started working towards making everyone capable of fulfilling these expectations,” Bhagwat told a gathering here at the inauguration of 40th convention of social service organisation Giants International.This change in the country is happening “because there is a change in power,” he said during his 50-minute speech. Also Read – Need to understand why law graduate’s natural choice is not legal profession: CJI“The way people in power are working now, makes the change. But that is not enough. If you want to make the country more successful, then the entire society has to rise to the occasion. Only if that happens, the achievements of government can be fruitful,” he said.“The society should contribute for others and the nation. Good leaders or noble political set up in the governance are useless if the society is selfish,” he said, adding, this is not the first time that such political change has happened.“The political changes in the past were rendered useless.There was a fault from this side (society) and also the other side (government),” he said.“The ultimate change is possible only when people see examples and imitate them. People believe in what they see,” he said.
