Distressed farmers knock Supreme Court's doors for relief 19.6.2018 The Tribune
Mumbai, June 19 A farmers' group has taken its fight for higher remuneration and other issues to the Supreme Court, where it has filed a petition challenging an Article in the Constitution, which it claims is against cultivators. The Kisaan Putra Andolan (KPA), a movement started in Maharashtra by farmers' activist Amar Habib, filed the petition in the apex court on March 21 seeking abolition of the Constitution's Article 31B and a Schedule under it, while dubbing them as "anti-farmer". The movement's members are of the view that the abolition of Article 31B will pave way for challenging many laws that are the cause of agrarian crisis in the country. According to KPA, some of these laws come under the Agricultural Land Ceiling Act, the Essential Commodities Act and the Land Acquisition Act, which are part of the Constitution's Ninth Schedule. Notably, laws under the Ninth Schedule are not open to judicial review. Habib, a close aide of Shetkari Sanghatana leader late Sharad Joshi, said that times have ...

Long strides against the tide 17.6.2018 The Tribune
Harbans Singh In 1943, when Dinu Bhai Pant composed Sheher pehlo pehl under the genre of gitlu, the tickle or titillation, there was no forum for the poem to be published. The irrepressible poet would visit various neighbourhoods of Jammu and recite his poem to all those who cared to listen. And, listen they did! It was that single poem that released the pent-up creativity of the Dogri-speaking people. Those who study history of languages might be baffled by the fact that even though Dogri finds mention in Amir Khusro’s Masnawi Nuh Siphir, and subsequently, all through history there have been eminent people from the Jammu and Kangra region, who sporadically wrote in Dogri, yet it could never develop into a throbbing literary scene. Also, during the rule of Maharaja Ranbir Singh in the 19th century, it was the court language along with Persian. The literature, as we know it, came to be created only after the bold efforts of Dinu Bhai Pant. It was only after 1957 that Dogri literary works came to be ...

Tribune News Service Dehradun, June 14 Citing the provisions under the Maintenance and Welfare of the Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007, the Uttarakhand High Court has directed the state government to establish well-equipped old-age homes for senior citizens in all districts of Uttarakhand within six months. The court also directed the government to provide beds and facilities of blood test and MRI scan among other tests for free at government hospitals for senior citizens. Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice Lokpal Singh in their judgment on Tuesday observed that the state government should build their own old-age homes for senior citizens and not depend on NGOS or societies to run these.

Guv, CM remember Afzal Beg 11.6.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Srinagar, June 10 Governor NN Vohra on Sunday paid tributes to Mirza Mohammad Afzal Beg, former Deputy Chief Minister of the state, on his 36th death anniversary. In a statement, the Governor said Beg was an “astute administrator and parliamentarian, who, as Sheikh (Mohammad Abdullah) Sahib’s Revenue Minister, was the architect of visionary land reforms and enforcement of pro-tiller policies”. He noted that Mirza Beg would perhaps be remembered most for the maturity and vision with which he conducted the extended parleys in the mid 70s with the representative of the Union, leading to the “Beg-Parthasarthy Accord”, a landmark in J&K-Delhi understandings. Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti also paid tributes to the former Deputy CM. In her message, she described him as a seasoned leader who possessed unmatched qualities of an astute politician and an equally innovative administrator who ruled the political canvas of the state for a long time.
