Unhappy over Centre's inaction over gas pricing, former bureaucrat approached Arvind Kejriwal 14.2.2014 DNA: Popular News
A former bureaucrat who worked in the power ministry and recently complained to the Delhi government about the Centre's natural gas pricing mechanism has said that he did so because he was dissatisfied with the Centre's decisions and actions over the pricing mechanism. Former secretary in the power ministry, EAS Sarma, was one of the four to approach former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal (who quit on Friday) a few weeks ago hoping that Kejriwal will act against the gas pricing mechanism. The three others who also wrote to Kejriwal on the issue are former cabinet secretary TSR Subramanian, former Navy chief admiral RH Tahiliani and advocate Kamini Jaiswal. Following the correspondence, at Kejriwal's behest, the anti-corruption bureau filed an FIR against oil minister M Veerappa Moily, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani and others for creating an artificial shortage of gas in the country and raising prices. "I was not satisfied with the steps taken by the Central ...

No question of stalling gas price hike, Delhi Government's actions unconstitutional: M. Veerappa Moily 14.2.2014 DNA: India
Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister M. Veerappa Moily on Friday said that there was no question of stalling the gas price hike from April 1, and added that the Delhi Government's decision to file an FIR against him and others is unconstitutional. "There is no question of stalling the gas price hike from April 1, and, I don't think that the Delhi Government is our appellate authority," said Moily. "What the Delhi Government is doing is unconstitutional and against federal principles. It is very clear that they are exercising power which is extra-constitutional or contrary to constitutional provisions," he said. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to put on hold the gas price hike from April 1 till a case pending before the Supreme Court is disposed off. On Tuesday, Kejriwal had revealed that a case had been filed by the Delhi Anti-Corruption Bureau against two UPA Ministers-Murli Deora and M.Veerappa Moily-and ...

Air pollution increases hypertension risk in pregnant women 14.2.2014 DNA: Opinion
A new study has found that breathing in harmful toxics during pregnancy increases risk of hypertension in women and may result in deadly complications like preeclampsia. Researchers at the University of Florida compared birth data with Environmental Protection Agency estimates of air pollution, finding that heavy exposure to four air pollutants led to a significantly increased risk for developing a high blood pressure disorder during pregnancy. The pollutants include two specific types of fine and coarse particulate matter, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide. According to the EPA, particulate matter includes acids, dust, metals and soil particles. These inhalable particles are released from industries and forest fires and can form when gases react with each other in the air. Sulfur dioxide is emitted from power plants and industries. Most carbon monoxide is produced by car exhaust. Xiaohui Xu, an assistant professor of epidemiology in the colleges of Public Health and Health Professions and ...

Cong MPs blame core group for mess 14.2.2014 Asian Age: India
A blame game has begun in the Congress, with the party MPs blaming the core group, consisting of party chief Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and top leaders, for the mess on the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. Besides, the government’s floor managers, including parliamentary affairs minister Kamal Nath, Union minister Jairam Ramesh also contributed to the “botch-up”. “The core group is good in paperwork but bad in groundwork,” they said while drawing attention to how it has “spoiled” Andhra Pradesh for the last five years. Mr Pranab Mukherjee had been an “excellent floor manager” since 2004, when the UPA came to power. But after his election as President of India, the senior ministers have proved disastrous. Their “ill advice” to Mrs Gandhi, party vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh on the issues of 2G spectrum allocation, the allocation of coal blocks and on splitting Andhra Pradesh has not only gone against the interest of the Congress or the UPA but also helped ...
