Dalit organisations, leaders, and MLAs belonging to the community will take part in an andolan on August 7 in an effort to convince BJP MLAs to join hands with them for a Dalit cause. MLA Naushad Solanki said at a press conference following a meeting of various Dalit leaders in the city that they would soon be introducing a Bill in the Assembly which would make it mandatory for SC/ST funds to be used only for their benefits and not other purposes. If this Bill gets passed, Rs 4 lakh crore will be available for the community and you can uplift them in a matter of just a decade, he said. "At present, what is happening is that although the budget makes an allocation for SC/STs, a substantial part of it is used for things that don't benefit the communities.

How does it uplift them?" asked Solanki. He said that even the advertisement expenses of the ...

An Israeli air strike has killed seven militants believed to be linked to the Islamic State group and seeking to infiltrate the country from the Syrian Golan Heights, the army said Thursday.

Akbar lynching, arrests disrupt Alwar’s political equilibrium 28.7.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Alwar, a cesspool of turbulence and conflicts related to cow smuggling, had over time managed to strike an equilibrium. The scenario involved three players - cow smugglers, cow vigilantes and police. Public opinion and political mood of the district largely depends on instances that involve these three. That the district is a favoured route for cow smugglers is no secret and conflicts between cow smugglers, police and cow vigilantes had become regular occurance. The players took minor skirmishes in their stride. This managed to keep a status quo in the political balance too.
