Supreme Court dismisses plea seeking minimum qualification for lawmakers 17.7.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition seeking a direction to fix minimum qualifications for becoming an MP or MLA, saying it was for Parliament to decide. "You are seeking an order that there should be qualifications for MPs and MLAs. That is for Parliament to decide. We cannot decide it," a bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said. The apex court was hearing a petition seeking its direction for "prescribing desirable qualifications for MPs and MLAs" so only properly qualified people became lawmakers. Besides this, the petition also referred to a provision of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 which deals with corrupt practices, and sought a direction that the candidates and others associated with them, like their agents, also be prosecuted under the electoral law. The bench observed that a candidate can be held liable for the offence of corrupt practice under the Representation of the People Act whereas others, like their agents, can be prosecuted under ...

When you should share your location in phone 16.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Recently, after my motorcycle malfunctioned and crashed on the freeway, I wanted only two simple things from technology: to call 911 and to tell loved ones where I could be found. Coincidentally, I had been testing location-sharing tools from Apple, Google, Facebook and Snapchat. So before calling the police, I texted my partner, who was already tracking my location with several apps, letting her know I was hurt. When she opened Google Maps, she could see precisely where I was on the 101 South freeway. But when she refreshed the map to follow the ambulance, she ran into the app's shortcomings: Google showed I was at Costco (not where I wanted to be, injured or not) when I was actually strapped onto a stretcher heading toward San Francisco General Hospital. Such is the state of location sharing on smartphones. For years, tech companies have offered different ways for people to tell one another where they are. Yet all the popular location-sharing tools are limited or flawed, and in some cases broadcasting ...

Were the Bharwad-Darbar clashes politically-motivated? 15.7.2017 DNA: India
The state government as well as the BJP are engaged in efforts to pacify the Darbar and Bharwad communities even as Dhrangadhra in Surendranagar district continued to remain tense on Friday. Minister of state for home, Pradipsinh Jadeja, said, “We have roped in community leaders from our party as well as apolitical people to convince both communities. Police forces have been trying their best to maintain law and order in Dhrangadhra and other affected areas. The situation is almost under control now. We will ensure that action is taken against those who indulged in violence and killed people.” Violent clashes between both communities on Thursday left two dead. Thursday’s incident, however, has its roots in the murder of Popat Bharwad nearly five years ago which pitted both communities against each other and sparked off a bloody revenge saga. Last Friday, Indrasinh Zala, who was arrested for Bharwad’s murder and was out on bail, was hacked to death. On Thursday, Bharwad community members were heading for ...

A man, who police claimed was a sympathiser of right-wing outfits, was attacked by some people on a motorbike at Kuthar near here, days after an RSS activist was fatally stabbed at Bantwal. Tension had prevailed at the spot following the attack. Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramiah, in Bengaluru, today made an appeal to the people to maintain peace and warned of strict action against those involved in instigating communal hatred.

Tripathi hits back at Mamata, Centre steps in to defuse row 5.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The unprecedented public spat between West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee escalated today with the former alleging her charges are meant only to emotionally blackmail the people of the state even as the Centre stepped in to defuse the row. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Tripathi and Banerjee separately and is understood to have told them to resolve their differences amicably. The spat over the communal flare-up following an objectionable Facebook post in North 24-Paraganas district also led the Congress to demand the recall of Tripathi, accusing him of compromising on constitutional propriety. The ruling Trinamoool Congress launched a fresh attack on Tripathi, accusing him of "crossing" all constitutional limits and reminding him that the Raj Bhavan "could not be the party office of the BJP." As the Union Home ministry sought a report from the West Bengal government on the communal violence, Rajnath Singh in his separate telephonic conversations with Tripathi ...
