Board of Cricket Council of India's (BCCI) Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) chief Neeraj Kumar on Saturday said that no evidence was found against the two named Indians in the alleged Ashes spot-fixing case. Kumar's comments come in the backdrop of claims made by U.K. publication 'The Sun' that two Indian bookies, Sobers Joban and Priyank Saxena, from Delhi, attempted to spot-fix the third Test at Perth. Speaking to ANI on the matter, Kumar said, "There has been no fixing, there are claims made against the two by Sun reporters." He added, "These two [Sobers Joban and Priyank Saxena] are in our radar and they are known to us for quite some time. They are persons of interest.

Guj results to set tone for future politics 17.12.2017 DNA: Money
On Monday, when the Gujarat election results come out, their echo will resonate much beyond the boundaries of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state and will, in a way, set the tone for the 2019 general elections. Either way, the results will be read as the mood of the nation for despite the state being home to Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, in one of the most keenly contested elections in the history of Gujarat, the ruling party has risked its key support bases — Patidars and traders — on issues of anamat (reservation) and Goods and Services Tax (GST). For the Congress, it is a chance to cash on the fatigue factor after 22 years of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rule in the state and on the absence of a strong chief minister. The state has seen two chief ministers in a short span of three years, after Modi resigned from the post to become the Prime Minister in mid-2014. Rise of Rahul Besides, this is the election that saw the elevation of Rahul Gandhi, who, as his party’s chief, literally became the ...

Congress will remain corrupt, says BJP 16.12.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Downplaying Rahul Gandhi's elevation as Congress President, the BJP attacked the party saying that a change in leadership will not make any difference to the corrupt working of the party. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra cited the recent sentencing of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda, who was supported by the Congress, in a corruption case to hit out at the party. "We all know that Madhu Koda was an Independent MLA, but because of the fact that the government was formed with the support of the Congress party, the government then was almost a Congress government run by Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Ahmed Patel from 10 Janpath, 24 Akbar Road ," he said. He said it's ironic that despite the Congress not being in power for four years, corruption cases of their time were still being talked about. "This speaks volumes about the thought process, the working of Congress party. So a new president or an old president, the corrupt ways of Congress still remain the same," he said. He said when the Congress ...
