DC Debate: Still waiting for good times 25.5.2017
It seems to be a cock and bull story Tarun Kumar Achche din seems to be a cock and bull story. The government has completed its three years, but the promises made still seem to be very far from reality. The government has failed miserably, from foreign policy to internal security, price rise to employment, and many such issues. The wrapping paper of publicity and advertisement has now unwrapped in front of the Indian people. Even the agenda of the BJP is now showing its true colours; under the banner of nationalism they are showing orthodoxism, demonetisation covered illegal black money of their beloved corporates. On one side they want Swachh Bharat, on the other they provoke riots in the name of religion, caste — whether it is in Meerut, Saharanpur, etc. The promise of an equal answer to Pakistan on ceasefire violations has also been seen as a jumla, nothing else. The main agenda of the BJP has been revealed in these three years. A news channel showed minister of state Jitendra Singh giving an ...

The dispensary has been without pharmacists for the past six years, claimed sources. “The dispensary functions from a two-room structure as an out-patient facility. It caters to the medical needs of around 30-35 patients and even more from the village and nearby localities every day. Though more than 10 years have passed since its inception, there has been no improvement in its functioning or infrastructure,” said Rajkumar, a helper at ayurvedic dispensary. The dispensary lacks proper seating arrangements and various other basic ...

On its first run, Tejas Express returns dirty 25.5.2017
Mumbai: The Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express, the country’s first high-speed semi-luxurious train, returned to the city in a mess after some passengers thrashed the LCD screens, stole headphones, soiled the toilets and littered the entire train. The railway authorities were shocked to see the mess on the train, following which they have now appealed to passengers to safeguard the Tejas Express and treat it like their own property. The much-talked about train left Karmali at 2:30 pm on Tuesday afternoon and reached CST at 11: 00 pm, with its interiors wrecked by the passengers. It will be recalled that the train has been fully booked up to Friday this week as well as during the Ganesh Chaturthi season. Aditya Tembe, a passenger who was travelling by economic-class on the train, described the chaos that ensued once they departed from Karmali.  “Some of the passengers tried to remove the LCD screen by pulling on its hinges, probably wanting to take it home as it is easy to carry in one’s bag, but after a while, a ...

Rampant encroachment at Varthur lake, say residents 24.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Dumping of garbage and construction debris continues unabated on the banks and catchment area of Varthur lake, according to locals and members of Whitefield Rising. They point out that even after clear directions from Chief Secretary Subhash C Khuntia and Additional Chief Secretary, Urban Development Department (UDD), Mahendra Jain to civic agencies to prevent dumping and take action against offenders, nothing has changed.
