ICC CWC'19: 'They'ren't putting clinical finishing touch needed to win games': Lloyd 25.6.2019
West Indies need to rethink their tactical approach and pace their innings better at the Cricket World Cup if they are to get the best out of a side full of talent, according to cricketing great Clive Lloyd. West Indies are eighth in the standings after six matches having won just one game — a seven-wicket demolition of Pakistan in their opening match. Jason Holder"s side, however, could have been in a much stronger position heading into their next match against India in Manchester on Friday had they not lost to front-runners New Zealand narrowly or let Australia off the hook. "West Indies could be one of the best teams around — they have the talent," Lloyd said in his column for the International Cricket Council. "Ultimately, the difference has been that the West Indies just aren"t settling in and making big scores (and) they"re not putting the clinical finishing touches necessary to win games." The Guyanese, who captained the West Indies to the ...

According to Varadarajan, a farmer from the Kovilpatti region, the river linking project , conceptualized in the early 1960s' was aimed to get inflows into water-starved Vaippar river flowing through the taluks of Sivagiri, Sankarankoil, Kovilpatti, Sattur, Virudhunagar and Vilathikulam by diverting surplus water from the west-flowing rivers of Achankoil and Pamba in Kerala.

Y S Jaganmohan Reddy orders demolition of government building built in naidu regime 25.6.2019
Amaravati (AP): Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy Monday ordered demolition of a government building on a riverbed here, constructed during the tenure of his predecessor N Chandrababu Naidu, saying it was built in "violation" of rules and "involved corruption". The 'Praja Vedika' (grievance hall) was built by the AP Capital Region Development Authority on the Krishna riverbed near the residence of Naidu, the Telugu Desam Party President and the present Leader of the Opposition. The order of Jagan effectively meant rejection of Naidu's plea to him earlier this month that the hall, used for official meetings in the previous regime, be declared as 'residence annex' of the Leader of Opposition. The chief minister made the announcement in his inaugural speech at a two-day conference of district Collectors and Superintendents of Police that began Monday as the gathering of state ministers and top bureaucrats greeted it with ...

Warangal: Transgenders seek equal opportunities 25.6.2019
WARANGAL: Transgenders from Warangal have demanded that they be given equal opportunities to live in the society. They appealed to the Warangal Urban collector Prashant J. Patil requesting him to ensure that they are given fair treatment.   Members of the Telangana Hijra Transgender Samiti on Monday presented a memorandum to the collector, requesting  to ensure that the social group receives the state government incentives to improve living conditions. They pointed out that the Supreme Court had in 2014 recognised transgenders as the third gender and ruled that they are entitled to equal opportunities along with men and women. However, even after five years of the ruling,  the state government is yet to bring out welfare schemes for the social group, they said. They pointed out how states like Andhra Prad-esh, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Odisha were implementing the same. Their demands are that the state government provide them with Aasara pension, housing, education, self-employment loans ...
