GHMC drivers join RTC duty to earn more money 14.10.2019
Hyderabad: The TSRTC strike has been tough on the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC). Drivers in its transportation wing were reluctant to attend duty as they prefer moonlighting at for private buses under RTC, which pay Rs 2,000 per eight-hour day. This dwarfs wages at the civic body. As a result, garbage pick-up from transfer stations has suffered the past three days. About 5,280 metric tonne (MT) of garbage is generated daily in the city. Of this, 2,510 MT is wet waste, 1952 MT is dry waste and the remaining 820 MT is other waste. The GHMC uses nearly 500 trucks, 2,500 Swachh auto-trolleys and over 18,000 workers for the collection and disposal of waste in its 30 circles.   In recent years, 176 vehicles were declared unfit and auctioned. The GHMC uses 234 hired 25-MT capacity garbage vehicles to shift garbage to the Jawaharnagar dumping yard. Highly-placed sources say about 50 per cent of the drivers have evaded duty the past three days. Private agencies which maintain hired vehicles ...

Was it a drama? TN Cong slams PM for plogging on beach at Mamallapuram 13.10.2019
Chennai: The Congress' Tamil Nadu unit on Sunday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi plogging on the beach at Mamallapuram on Saturday, wondering if it was a 'drama' since the entire area had been cleaned up earlier ahead of his visit here. On Sunday, TNCC President K S Alagiri welcomed the two leaders meeting at Mamallapuram and visiting UNESCO heritage sites, saying it reflected Tamil Nadu's pride. Referring to the three-minute video by Modi, Alagiri said the Prime Minister showed his keenness in the Swachch Bharat initiative by doing so. However, he pointed out that since Modi's visit was planned in advance, all sanitation work had been diligently carried out at the hotel zone where he stayed, even as the beach had been cleaned by conservancy staff using machines. "After (all) this, there is no chance of the area getting littered. Then how did suddenly waste emerge during his (morning) walk? If there indeed had been litter, doesn't it show the state ...

CHENNAI: Amidst a hectic schedule with the visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, cleaned the shores of the Kovalam beach during his morning stroll on Saturday, in line with his pet Swachh Bharat project. As the video and his accompanying text urging people to keep their beaches clean went viral, praise for his concern for environment poured out from several people, including the Tamils who have been bombarded these past two days by the social media inundation of the #GoBackModi hate-campaign.

Germany waste two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Argentina 10.10.2019
Dortmund: Injury-decimated Germany squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Argentina thanks to Lucas Ocampos"s 85th-minute equaliser in a friendly on Wednesday. The Germans, missing a dozen players and without a single world champion in the starting line-up for the first time since the 2014 World Cup final, fielded a callow team including newcomers Robin Koch and Luca Waldschmidt. What they lacked in experience, however, they made up for in enthusiasm in the first half with Serge Gnabry continuing his prolific run with his 10th goal in his 11th international, stabbing the hosts ahead after quarter of an hour. Gnabry turned provider seven minutes later when he found Kai Havertz in the box to complete a quick move. Marcel Halstenberg rattled the crossbar with a stunning left-footed free-kick as did Argentina"s Rodrigo De Paul with a long-range effort. Argentina, without suspended world footballer of the year Lionel Messi as well as Angel Di Maria and Sergio Aguero, cut the deficit in the ...
