Only electric vehicles by 2030: Goyal 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Piyush Goyal, the Union Minister for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy, and Mines, has blamed the state government for the shortage of electricity in Karnataka. He said the country was self-sufficient in coal and electricity. Speaking to journalists here on Friday, he said there would be no shortage of electricity if the state supported the Centre in extending the power transmission lines. "Hydroelectric power is suffering in Karnataka for the last three years due to failed monsoons.

‘Kashmir is a Rishi Waer - land of saints’ When India woke up to the new dawn of freedom on August 15, 1947, Jammu and Kashmir was going through a political churning. Seventy years down the line, poet and satirist Zareef Ahmad Zareef says that politics has become an industry in the country. “The Hindus and Muslims of undivided India were dedicated nationalists, who compelled the British to quit India. It was the sincerity of the leadership, who renounced their government jobs, and joined the freedom movement that forced them to leave,” says Zareef, who was born in 1943. “It was devotion then.” Kashmir, according to him, is a civilization in itself, and not a sub-civilization or sub-nationality. “Like Bharat Mata, we have Mauj Kashir (Mother Kashmir). Akbar snatched it in 1587 because of sectarian clashes, but before the Mughals came, Kashmir was an independent country; it was a tehzeeb (culture). The Mughals ruled us for 176 years, Pathans ruled us for 66 years, Sikhs ruled us for 28 years, and the ...
