Lessons from Millennium Development Goals 'springboard' for future UN agenda - Ban 7.7.2015 New Kerala: Business India
New York, July 7 : The United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) galvanized the world to produce the most successful anti-poverty movement in history, helped lift more than one billion people out of extreme poverty, made inroads against hunger and enabled more girls to attend school than ever before. However, despite remarkable gains, it will take more to ensure the poorest and most vulnerable people are not left behind.

Barack Obama mocks Republicans in President race 4.7.2015 Asian Age: International
US President Barack Obama has one wish for the Republicans trying to succeed him: that the odds are ever in their favour. On Thursday, Mr Obama poked fun at the ever-increasing “interesting bunch” of politicians vying for the Republican presidential nomination in the 2016 race, which now stands at 15. “We’ve got some healthy competition in the Democratic Party, but I’ve lost count on how many Republicans are running for this job,” the US leader said in a speech to students in the Midwestern state of Wisconsin. “They will have enough for an actual Hunger Games,” he joked, referring to the best-selling young adult novels, later transformed into successful blockbusters, about a bloody reality TV contest among children and teens in a dystopian future. Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, who welcomed Mr Obama to his state on Thursday as he descended from Air Force One, signalled that he was joining the presidential fray, making him the 15th major Republican in the White House hunt. Meanwhile, Mr Obama's Kenyan ...

Rajkumar Badole at the press conference — AA Admitting that the cooks were appointed, the social justice minister, however, denied any wrongdoing After attracting flak for allegedly organising parties using public money, social justice minister Rajkumar Badole said he would resign if proven guilty.

Admitting that the cooks were appointed, the minister, however, denied any wrongdoing. “My personal secretary wrote a letter by mistake about appointing the cooks. But no irregularities have happened. I refute the allegations levelled by the NCP. I will resign in the matter if proven guilty,” Mr Badole told reporters. Also, denying that the woman’s ...

I'd resign if woman's death was due to hunger: Rajkumar Badole 3.7.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
Minister for social justice Rajkumar Badole on Friday said that he would resign if allegation of him not being serious about the hunger death in his district was proved. He said that the death of the woman was due to hunger but because she was not keeping well for many days. Badole visited Lalita Rangari's house at Tiroda in Gondiya district and talked to her family members and neighbours. However, NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik had criticised that Badole was not serious about her death. Addressing the press on Friday, Badole said that he has not only visited Rangari's family but also has talked to her neighbours. He said that the woman was not eating food since she was not well. Her family has received the benefits from Sanjay Gandhi Niraadhaar Yojana and her two sons were getting food regularly. He also said that Rangari's elder son is mentally challenged and the younger one is visually impaired. He informed that the state government has already decided to take care of the family by sending the elder son ...
