Identify those who have kept contact with BJP Mamata urges party leaders

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has urged party leaders on Friday to identify those who had been and are still staying in contact with BJP and at the same time, said those who have joined the saffron party will not be allowed to rejoin Trinamool.She told party leaders not to worry and assured that the party will make a comeback in the 2021 Assembly polls. Banerjee met the leaders of Jhargram and Bankura at Trinamool Bhavan on Friday afternoon. Subrata Bakshi, state Trinamool president and Suvendu Adhikari, state Transport minister, also attended the meeting.

Also find out those who had supported BJP in the recently concluded general election. Those who have joined BJP will not be allowed to rejoin the party,” she asserted. Banerjee said BJP has distorted her statement on the ‘cut money’ debacle. “BJP has distorted my view on cut money. I did not say it the way it is being circulated by BJP,” she maintained. She reiterated that despite her requests, some leaders did not develop contact with the people and the party had to pay a price for their attitude in the Lok Sabha election.

But you did not and the party is paying a price for it,” she said and once again instructed the leaders to intensify their contact with people. She also stated that the leaders should bury their hatchets and work together to make the party regain its position. She urged Arup Chakraborty, Arup Khan and Shampa Daripa of Bankura to increase their contact with people. Rajib Ghosal, Trinamool Youth Congress president of Bankura, has been sidelined and a new president will be elected. She also asked Shyamapada Mukherjee, former minister from Bankura, to keep in touch with Daripa. In Jhargram, she asked Birbaha Soren to get in touch with Uma Soren for the party’s programmes. The Trinamool supremo said in both Jhargram and Bankura, the state government has carried out massive development. Several schemes have been initiated for SC and ST people. “But despite that, we have failed to win the election. We lacked in informing the people about the schemes. The leaders lacked in developing contact with the people as well,” she said. It may be recalled that both in Jhargram and Bankura, Trinamool Congress candidates had lost to their BJP rivals. Trinamool had fielded Subrata Mukherjee in Bankura, who lost by a huge margin. Similarly, Birbaha Soren was defeated by the BJP candidate as well. Banerjee is visibly disturbed over the poll results and held a marathon meeting with the district leaders on Friday, to analyse the poll debacle in Bankura and Jhargram.last_img read more

Instagram removes gay Muslim comics after Indonesia warning

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Instagram has removed an account that published comic strips depicting the struggles of gay Muslims in Indonesia following a frenzy of moral outrage online in the world’s biggest Muslim nation.The Ministry of Communications said Wednesday the account under the username Alpatuni was pornographic and it was closed after the communications minister wrote a warning letter to Instagram.The comics depicted gay characters facing discrimination and abuse, which has become increasingly common in Indonesia since late 2015 when conservative politicians and religious leaders began a campaign of portraying lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people as a threat to the nation.An account of the same name on Facebook, which owns Instagram, was also no longer accessible.The Associated Press read more

Muslim Rohingya Who Fled Myanmar Will Not Be Forcibly Repatriated

By Josh BabbRabat – Kalam’s announcement came as protests by the Muslim Rohingya population who fled persecution in Myanmar broke out across refugee camps in Bangladesh. The protestors said they feared more violence if they were repatriated to Myanmar. Bangladesh had originally brokered a deal with Myanmar to begin returning 2,260 Rohingya refugees from nearly 300 families on Thursday. The UN refugee agency and human rights groups criticized the move to begin repatriation, saying Bangladesh can not force the Rohingya back against their will. “The plan to begin returning the Rohingya to Myanmar comes just days after UN investigators warned of an ‘ongoing genocide’ against the Muslim minority.” The terms of the repatriation deal have yet to be made public.Read Also: Aung San Suu Kyi to be Stripped of Seventh Award over Rohingya ViolenceBeginning in August 2017 the Rohingya population in Myanmar experienced army-led violence in response to a series of attacks by Rohingya rebels on military compounds. The Myanmar military’s campaign killed more than 6,700 people and forced nearly 700,000 to flee into neighboring Bangladesh. The UN Human Rights Commission stated that there were credible reports of “massacres, murders and mass rapes,” as hundreds of Rohingya villages burned across the Myanmar countryside. The sheer scale of the crimes led many nations and human rights organizations to accuse Myanmar’s government of ethnic cleansing and genocide. Aung San Suu Kyi, the de facto leader of Myanmar’s civilian government and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, has been widely criticized for failing to condemn or even acknowledge the atrocities directed against the Rohingya at the hands of Myanmar’s armed forces. In a stunning rebuke Amnesty International revoked Aung San Suu Kyi’s Ambassador of Conscience award, given to her in 2012, two years after her release from a years long period of house arrest for her efforts to promote democratic reforms in Myanmar.  Writing in the Washington Post, Kumi Naidoo, the secretary general of Amnesty said, “Although her party does not control the military, Aung San Suu Kyi has allowed herself and her government to become a shield for military abuses.”Aung San Suu Kyi faced further criticism this week when she attended the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit in Singapore. US Vice President Mike Pence repeatedly pressed her to protect the Rohingya, “This is a tragedy that has touched the hearts of millions of Americans.” Pence also told her Americans believe in a “free and independent press,” saying Myanmar’s jailing of two Reuters journalists last December who had been covering the massacre of the Rohingya was “deeply troubling.” Myanmar is a Buddhist-majority country and many do not accept the Rohingya as true members of Myanmar society, instead viewing them as “Bengalis” who immigrated illegally from nearby Bangladesh. Nearly all Rohingya have been denied citizenship in Myanmar since a 1982 law went into effect. read more

CPA concerned over amendment plan

The CPA said that the proposed amendments have far reaching implications both in terms of preserving democratic values and achieving post-war reconciliation. The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) is deeply perturbed by recent media reports that the government is planning on amending several provisions of the Thirteenth Amendment to the constitution.A statement by the CPA said that over the past several weeks there were contradictory statements made by senior MPs of the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) as to whether discussions are under way to amend the constitution. “As such it is highly disconcerting that the proposed amendment is a result of a process that was shrouded in secrecy and only limited to some constituent elements of the UPFA government. CPA has critiqued the lack of transparency and public participation in the law making process – the process that formulates constitutional amendments and broad sweeping legislation –since its inception. However despite promises– including the proposals of the present government in terms of its ‘National Human Rights Action Plan’ – successive governments have exploited these deficiencies in the law making process and have not demonstrated any willingness to remedy these failings,” the CPA said. The CPA says the incumbent government has repeatedly adopted the process of classifying constitutional amendments as ‘urgent bills’ and thereby further limited the existing space for public debate and judicial scrutiny. Considering the serious and irreversible impact the present amendment would have on the post-war reconciliation process. CPA strongly urges the government that in the event they do propose legislation amending the Thirteenth Amendment to the constitution, they desist from adopting the proposed urgent bill procedure.CPA has repeatedly critiqued the Thirteenth Amendment as being inadequate in devolving power to the Provinces. The Thirteenth Amendment is replete with provisions which weigh the balance of power in favour of the centre. Considering the weaknesses of the Thirteenth Amendment, all subsequent power sharing proposals – from the Mangala Moonesinghe Committee proposals to the Majority Report of the All Party Representatives Committee – in initiatives under successive governments, have reiterated the need to move beyond the provisions of the Thirteenth Amendment. CPA further states that such a unilateral act would amount to a violation of specific undertakings of the present government to the international community that it would work to formulate a political solution acceptable to all communities, and specifically to the undertakings given to the government of India that any future political solution would go beyond the framework of the Thirteenth Amendment. Regardless of these statements of intent, the government has demonstrated no credible commitment to negotiating a post-war power-sharing settlement.Therefore CPA strongly urges the government to not proceed with the proposed constitutional amendment and to recommence an inclusive dialogue with a view to developing a consensus amongst all major stakeholders on a political solution acceptable to all communities.

CN Rail lays off some nonunionized workers in wake of record revenues

MONTREAL — Canadian National Railway Co. is laying off some non-unionized workers, less than three weeks after the company reported the highest quarterly revenues in its 99-year history.A spokesman said no locomotive crews or front-line employees were affected, but held off on explaining what prompted the move.CN Rail declined to say how many consultants, contractors and managers face dismissal, saying that a “small percentage” of non-unionized workers were let go.Affected management employees were notified last Friday. The Teamsters Canada union confirmed it had not been informed of any layoffs for its members.The Montreal-based railway earned a net income of $1.13 billion in the quarter ended Sept. 30, an 18 per cent year-over-year increase, the Montreal-based company reported last month. Revenues ramped up to $3.69 billion.The windfall came partly as a result of $48 million in land sales and higher pricing for coal, lumber and petroleum and chemicals amidst an economy firing on all cylinders.Companies in this story: (TSX:CNR) read more

Annan names Special Envoy to help resolve northern Ugandan conflict

“He will develop a cohesive and forward-looking policy approach among all external actors,” Mr. Annan said in a letter to the Security Council, offering his good offices to the countries of the region in the light of ongoing peace talks between the Ugandan Government and the LRA. The Council welcomed these talks last month. Mr. Annan noted that the LRA insurgency had caused the death and abduction of thousands of civilians, displaced more than 1.5 million people in northern Uganda, and severely disrupted humanitarian operations in southern Sudan. “Its presence and activities in the north-eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) also represent a serious security threat for the civilian population and the region,” he wrote. Mr. Chissano, as Special Envoy for the LRA-affected areas, will seek a solution that addresses the root causes of the conflict and will liaise with the International Criminal Court (ICC), where LRA leader Joseph Kony and four other senior figures have been indicted for war crimes. Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa told the UN General Assembly’s annual gathering of world leaders in September that his country has offered an amnesty to the LRA leadership because it believes this is the best way to peacefully end the conflict. In his letter, Mr. Annan cited Security Council resolutions early this year, which strongly condemned the activities of the LRA both in southern Sudan and in the Great Lakes region of Africa, and asked the Secretary-General to recommend more effective ways for the UN to address the problem of the LRA in the region. read more

Basketball player opens up during Badgers vs Bullying

Dani Elgadi knows the fear and shame of bullies making you their target. The Brock men’s basketball player wasn’t always 6’7”. In fact, he was the shortest kid in his Grade 5 class. He was shy, quiet and non-confrontational.And, he was bullied.Elgadi shared his story with 800 elementary students from 20 local schools during the Badgers vs. Bullying event held at Brock University Thursday, Oct. 22.He recalled how two older boys bullied him on a few occasions as he walked home from schools.But, it wasn’t the bullies who made the biggest impression on him. It was the strangers who stepped in and made it stop.You can ask for help. Whatever you can’t handle alone, you have people who can help you.“These were bystanders who saw something, knew it was wrong and they did something,” he said.After that, Elgadi decided to ask for help from his older brothers, who from then on walked home with him.He urged the students to reach out if they are being bullied.“You can ask for help. Whatever you can’t handle alone, you have people who can help you,” he said.That’s the message head coach Charles Kissi also gave the students.He told them about a time when he was too scared to ask for help – he ended up walking for four hours in the blistering cold until he couldn’t take it anymore and asked a cab driver for a ride. The driver didn’t make him pay the fare. It taught Kissi that people will help when you ask.The students also heard from Brock bullying expert Associate Professor Tony Volk and basketball player Johneil Simpson before watching the Badgers take the court against the University of Victoria Vikes. Brock won 99-69.This was the inaugural Badgers vs. Bullying event, which quickly reached its maximum capacity of 800 students. Another 2,000 students from dozens of additional schools had to be turned away for this year, but the students will all be given free tickets to a future Brock Badgers men’s basketball home game. Plans to host next year’s social awareness event at a bigger venue are already being considered. read more

Itll grow on you Gardaí demand the right to wear a beard

first_img 17,365 Views RANK-AND-FILE gardaí have called on the Commissioner to change regulations to allow them to wear a beard on duty.It’s the final day of the Garda Representative Association (GRA) and having dealt with some rather more serious issues like assaults, terrorism and GSOC investigations this week, a lighter motion on the right to facial hair was proposed by Kildare rep John-Joe O’Connell.O’Connell read from the garda code, which states sideburns must be neatly trimmed and can not extend past the lower part of the exterior ear opening.“A moustache can be worn and kept tight and neatly trimmed. No portion will extend below the corners of the mouth or fall below a line parallel with the lower lip. Otherwise the face must be clean-shaven,” he continued.The presence of beards on men in society is not as unusual a sight as it might have been in times gone by.O’Connell said some members do not mind having to shave every day before going to work, but for some, it is “irritating to their skin, annoying and uncomfortable”.Back in 2001, the association raised this issue in relation to garda whistleblower John Wilson, who was confined to indoor duties for breaching regulations by letting his facial hair grow. Wilson said at the time that he was suffering from a skin condition which was eased by growing a beard. The garda code was later changed to include an exemption from this rule for members who cannot shave for medical reasons.“It’s a fact of life men grow hair on their faces,” O’Connell said. He asked garda delegates to support the motion: “I promise it will grow on you.”Brendan Stokes, of Carbury station in Kildare, seconded the motion:“It’s not like we want to reunite the Dubliners and start growing beards all over the place,” he said.Sligo-Leitrim’s Jack Kelleher also spoke in favour of the motion.It is a human right I think to allow us be natural. Beards can reduce skin cancer…help reduce asthma and allergies. They help you keep young looking…They reduce infections and you end up with blemish- free skin and a beard is a natural moisturiser.“All jokes aside, I think this is an old law and should be done away with. If anyone wants to wear a tidy beard, it should be allowed. It does no harm,” he said. The motion was passed by the conference.When asked about the motion yesterday Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan said changing the rules to allow officers to grow beards was not high on her list of priorities.Poll: Should uniformed gardaí be allowed have beards?> Police in other jurisdictions are permitted to wear a beard on duty.

Souvlaki prices increase to 3 euros in Greece this summer

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Souvlaki, Greece’s traditional fast food that is popular among Greeks and tourists alike, will soon incur a 10-15 per cent price increase, which could lift its cost up to 3 euros per pitta-wrapped souvlaki, from 1 May, 2019.The reason for this sudden hike, according to a statement by the Association of Hellenic Meat Processing Industries (SEBEK), is due to the significant rise in the international pork price by 30-32 per cent since the end of February – a cost which the meat industries and souvlaki shop owners can no longer absorb.“Statistically, every couple of years there is a simultaneous emergence of several factors leading to a pork price increase. Usually the consequences are temporary, and hikes are absorbed by the manufacturing industry and the distribution chain. In this case it is taking longer, and part of the price increase will reach the final consumer,” SEBEK warned.The Athens Professional Chamber called for talks to ease the impact on consumers, asking for a reduction of taxes.Nevertheless, there can be no recommendation, let alone imposition, of a horizontal price hike by the union of souvlaki shop owners that is set to be formed, as that would constitute a direct violation of competition law.READ MORE: Can you get more inventive than the Tsitsipas’ souvlaki?“We want to ensure that the quality of the meat is good, so we are now in the process of reviewing some necessary increases, in order to be able to protect our product,” said Mr Giorgos Polyzos, representative of the Association, who also confirmed that all the street food, souvlaki shops selling the product are also expected to implement the increase.What do Greek Australians think?Greek Australians appear to be 100 per cent supportive of fellow Greeks and are not at all concerned about the slight price increase.“I absolutely love the quality of souvlakia in Greece and I would much rather pay a little extra and enjoy them without having to force the people who make them to cut their margin. We work hard and are lucky enough to be in a position to holiday in gorgeous Greece, and if paying a little extra means helping Greek families make a living, then I don’t see any issue with this,” says Greek Australian executive pastry chef George Diakomichalis, who organises tourist groupsfrom Australia to Greece during the summer months.“I think that in comparison to Australian prices ($4.71) it’s a relatively cheap meal, so I have no objection. I think food prices will always follow financial trends anywhere, so Greece is no different on that score. I would rather eat first grade takeaway than second grade any day,” says Australian travel writer Paul Hellander who also visits Greece a few times throughout the year.READ MORE: Sydney’s favourite souvlaki joint comes to Melbourne“From a tourist perspective, 3 euros is still on the cheap side for food, especially of this quality. In Australia you pay $10 plus for a sandwich so I don’t personally see an issue. My only concern is that the Greek citizens with their low wages will suffer with increases in prices more than us visitors or tourists. I guess you can’t compromise on quality either, so if demand for pork is pushing prices up, then we all need to accept that and move on from there,” says government accounting executive Harry Argyriou who also visits Greece on a regular basis.“I don’t mind paying extra because souvlaki in Greece is still much tastier than here and I don’t feel anyone out there would like to see the quality compromised,” adds immigration agent Zoi Papafilopoulou.last_img read more

Hierro positive over Spains chances against Russia

first_imgSpain boss Fernando Hierro is feeling confident over his side’s chances against Russia in their knockout match today due to the number of players in the squad that are capable of making the “difference”The 2010 champions have overcome a controversial start, when head coach Julen Lopetegui was dismissed two days before their opening match, to finish top of Group B following tricky encounters against Portugal, Iran and Morrocco.Next up for Spain is a last of 16 tie against Russia and the pressure will on for La Roja with many expecting them to overcome the hosts and reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup, despite the fact that they have generally struggled in the group stages against lesser sides.But Hierro is feeling optimistic and insists that his players are in good shape for today’s match.“We have players that any one of them at any moment can make a difference,” said the 50-year-old, as stated on The National.“We have a lot of faith, that’s most important. The players have worked very well. My players are very fit not only physically but mentally.“We want to be positive and believe everything is going to work out well. We shouldn’t fear the unknown. Nobody knows the unknown. We have trust in our group and in our players.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“All will be settled on details. Tomorrow we’re starting a new tournament. We have to be positive, have faith in ourselves and believe things are going to turn out well. And we all are positive that it will.”Spain will be reliant on veteran players like Andres Iniesta, David Silva and Gerard Pique.The trio have extensive experience playing in major tournaments at both club and international level and they were a part of the World Cup-winning squad from 2010.“We know a football match is decided on the pitch,” Hierro said.“My lads are used to playing in big stadiums, with a lot pressure, playing away from home. So we have clearly in mind that whatever’s going to be achieved will be achieved on the pitch.“It’s all about tomorrow, what happens at 5pm. The rest is irrelevant. We know we’re going to play against the hosts. They’re going to be supported by the people, watching in the stands and on television. But we’re also going to have 11 million Spaniards no less watching us on television. And we want to do as best we can.”Spain will take on Russia at the Luzhniki Stadium at 16:00 (GMT +2) today.last_img read more
