Lok Sabha bypolls in UP: acid test for Yogi 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Panorama
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath may be in demand in the forthcoming assembly polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh but he himself faces an acid test in by-polls in the two Lok Sabha constituencies of Gorakhpur and Phulpur in his own state. The bypolls have become more challenging for Adityanath, especially due to the poor law and order situation in the state and reports of a possible grand alliance between the Samajwadi Party (SP), BSP and Congress. Both Gorakhpur and Phulpur seats are prestigious for the BJP as Adityanath himself represented Gorakhpur in Lok Sabha and deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya represented Phulpur before resigning after they became members of the UP legislative council. Although the dates for the bypolls have not yet been announced, both the BJP and the opposition parties have shifted gears and started preparations. As both the seats fall in the eastern UP region, the results of the two by-polls would also be an indicator of things to come in the bigger battle in ...

Former Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy has sought a copy of the report submitted by the Justice (Retd) G Sivarajan Commission, which probed the multi-crore solar scam. The CPM-led government has initiated a vigilance and criminal investigation against Chandy and other top Congress leaders based on the findings of the commission. Chandy had earlier sought, under the RTI Act, copies of the report and details of the counsel received by the government from the advocate general and director general of prosecution. Chandy wrote to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan after Law Minister A K Balan said the government would not hand over a copy of the report.

This is a unilateral decision, which denies me my rights as a citizen," Chandy said.

No Vasectomy Raj in the State 16.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
I am still guilty that I killed my wife. She was a very brave and a wise lady. Considering our financial status we both mutually decided that she will go for sterilisation. To save money she forced me to opt for a government camp. During the procedure, she went through a complication and she died. I lost my wife and my kids lost their mother. I don’t blame the system for or anyone else except myself. I was not brave enough. I could have gone for sterilisation which is far more safer. I would suggest all the men that I lost my wife I request others please be brave enough and contribute for your family and society. This is a story of Harilal(name changed) which is just a very small reflection of the contribution men in family planning and population control. Rajasthan state is not just battling a paralysed sex ratio and women’s safety, but also lagging behind in ensuring equality as far as family planning is concerned. Data shows that the onus of family planning predominantly rests with women. As per the ...
