Took 1,300 yrs to see ills of triple talaq: Sushma Swaraj 14.10.2017 DNA: Popular News
Union Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj said it took 1,300 years for triple talaq to become a social concern in the country. Swaraj was answering questions at a direct dialogue programme 'Townhall,' organised by the BJP here on Saturday as part of its political campaign, ahead of the Assembly polls, to address issues related to women. Replying to Ahmedabad resident Ayesha Javed Khambhatwala's question — why it took 70 years for triple talaq to become a matter of social concern — Swaraj said, "When an issue is attached with votebank politics, it becomes difficult to resolve it. It was India's misfortune that a party that remained in power for 70 years did not think this was a burning issue. But better late than never." "Today, hundreds and thousands of women in India have got relief from this inhuman system," Swaraj said. Responding to a question about Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, Swaraj said,"Terrorism can be solved in two ways — strategic and warfare. We succeeded in putting international ...

Pranab Mukherjee defends amending I-T Act retrospectively 14.10.2017 DNA: Popular News
Former President Pranab Mukherjee, whose decision as the Finance Minister to amend the Income-Tax (I-T) Act retrospectively in 2012, in the backdrop of the Vodafone case, had led to an uproar, has strongly defended the move, saying it was borne out his conviction that India's Direct Tax Policy should not discriminate between domestic and foreign entities. In his book 'The Coalition Years 1996-2015', which was released on Friday, Mukherjee says he remained resolute on the decision, despite being advised to take the middle path. Retrospective tax has been one of the most contentious issues in corporate world in the last five years. It is related to a tax dispute between Vodaphone and tax department. A huge controversy had broken out on the issue as soon as Mukherjee had announced in his Budget Speech of 2012-13 that he proposed to amend the I-T Act, 1961, with retrospective effect, to undo the Supreme Court (SC) judgment in the Vodafone tax case. This was after the SC, in January, 2012, set aside a Bombay ...

Not a fool-proof solution, say citizens 14.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Twenty-nine pothole-infested Bengaluru roads may get white-topped over the next 11 months. Crores of rupees are sanctioned for the deed. However, the citys road-users feel the money pumped into the project will not help the water-logged roads. Common concerns of most residents are quality of roads, maintenance after white-topping and a holistic approach to solving the drainage issue across the city. Citizens believe that white-topping is not exactly the right approach to eradicate the pothole issue from its root. "The whole white-topping idea is fine, but the civic authorities are not looking at the root cause of the whole problem. It must go beyond just fixing the potholes," says Shahasan Noushad, a city-based R&D engineer. His concern: "They will white-top the roads and believe it is it. But what will happen three months down the line? Are they ensuring regular maintenance for the same? The city would not have reached this condition if we had not waited for the potholes to turn into craters." Noushad ...

RSS general secretary Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi said on Saturday that firecrackers that add to pollution should be banned, but that not all of them are an environmental hazard. "Not all of them should be banned. I think all of us need to take a balanced view," he told reporters during the press briefing on the completion of a three-day national executive meeting in Bhopal. "Tomorrow some people may say lighting lamps causesadverse impact on environment, then will that be banned as well?" Joshi said. On Friday, the apex court had refused to lift the ban and expressed pain that some people were giving a communal colour to a health issue. At the same time, the judges said they were not stopping people from bursting crackers that were already bought. Joshi also supported the Modi government on the issue of immigration of the Rohingya. He said it was not without reason that Myanmar had taken its decision on the Rohingya and that their coming to India is part of a "deep conspiracy". "Why are Rohingya Muslims ...

Move to divert MML funds for farm loan waiver triggers row 14.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
In a setback to the state government, employees of Mysore Minerals Limited (MML) have opposed diverting its surplus funds to cooperative banks to meet Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's commitment of waiving farmers' loans. Getting the profit-making MML to deposit its investible surplus funds of Rs 1,400 crore with the Karnataka State Cooperative Apex Bank Limited is one way the government is looking to capitalise cooperative banks to make up for the Rs 8,165 crore waiver of short-term loans that 22.27 lakh farmers had borrowed. Depositing funds with cooperative funds is not feasible, the Mysore Minerals Employees' Association has stated, while painting a gloomy future ahead for the company. About 90% of the company's mining operations have been stalled due to environmental regulations and 2,422 employees have left the workforce since 1998, with over four-fifths of the existing 900 employees due to superannuate in the next three years, the Association pointed out.

Will quit if charges are proven: Venugopal 14.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
AICC general secretary in-charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal on Saturday said he would quit politics if the sexual abuse charge against him is proved.

"I'm in politics for the last 40 years and I don't have any black spot," he told reporters after flagging off a new KSRTC Diamond Class bus service from here to Alappuzha in Kerala, which he represents in the Lok Sabha.

Saritha S Nair, the prime accused in the Kerala solar scam, has accused Venugopal of sexually abusing her. "The lady herself has 36 cases against her. I have already filed a defamation suit against her in an Ernakulam court. If it is proved that I've wronged, I'll retire from politics," said Venugopal, a former Union minister.

On Urban Development Minister R Roshan Baig's use of an expletive against Prime Minister, Venugopal said the BJP leaders had made comments that were even worse. "But, the use of such words is wrong and I'm sure Baig didn't say it on purpose," he said.
