JKNPP protests against PDP-BJP govt for 'deteriorating' situation in J K 17.2.2018 General News
The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today staged a protest demonstration here, claiming that the PDP-BJP alliance was responsible for the deteriorating situation in the state. Led by party chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh, dozens of JKNPP activists assembled at Exhibition Ground here amid chanting of anti-BJP and anti-government slogans. "The government is bestowing premium upon anti-nationals while disparaging the nationalists in the state. The ominous BJP-PDP alliance is squarely responsible for the deteriorating situation in the state," Singh said. He said the "atmosphere of anarchy" was conducive for the separatists and the anti-national elements to go on rampage without any fear of law and order. The protesters accused the BJP of "placating" the secessionist forces for "saving its alliance" with the PDP. Referring to the amnesty announced by the government for first time stone-pelters, he said it was a "morale boosting moment" for 9, 730 such youths .

Cauvery row no longer a hot potato for Karnataka 16.2.2018 deccanherald.com
The Cauvery river water sharing dispute from now is unlikely to be a major political issue with the Supreme Court giving a "favourable" verdict for Karnataka. The decades-long dispute with neighbouring Tamil Nadu has always been a sensitive and volatile issue and, any adverse verdict by the Supreme Court against Karnataka could have ignited a political time bomb ahead of the Assembly polls in the state. All parties on Friday welcomed the verdict of the apex court, reducing the allocation to Tamil Nadu by 14.75 tmcft and, at the same time expressed that there could have been more allocation to Karnataka. But, all said and done, parties were apprehensive about the verdict as it could have had an substantial impact on their electoral prospects. All the four riparian states - Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry - had filed petitions challenging the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal award of 2007 before the Supreme Court.Under pressure from farmers, parties in power in Karnataka have even refused to ...

UN experts concerned about deportation of US activists 15.2.2018 General News
United Nations human rights experts today called on the US to protect immigrant rights activists from deportation, saying they're concerned about a pattern of intimidation and retaliation. The Geneva-based UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said in a statement that deportation proceedings against Seattle-area activist Maru Mora-Villalpando appeared to be in retaliation for her political work. "Giving people notice of deportation proceedings appears to be a part of an increasing pattern of intimidation and retaliation against people defending migrants' rights in the US," the statement said. They said people working too protect migrants' rights must not be silenced. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have repeatedly denied any retaliation. Mora-Villalpando, a Mexico native and longtime activist for immigrants held at the privately run Northwest Detention Centre in Tacoma, has been in the US continuously since 1996. She says she received notice in December .
