Composting self-help groups falling short of space, asks BMC for more space 19.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
The initiative of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to segregate dry and wet waste, and use uncooked wet waste for composting with help of self-groups has brought positive result. Not only new self-help groups are joining the initiative, existing groups are also seeking more space for composting. Ranjana Shinde who runs Pratigya Mahila Bhachat Gath, a self help group in Vidyavihar, has more than 140 women members in her group. They collect waste from households, segregate it and then put the uncooked wet waste in the composting pits. She has been composting for the last two years, and now wants the civic body to allot her a bigger space. Like Shinde, other self-help groups are also asking for more space. Shinde said more women are joining such initiatives. However, the space allotted to them by civic body seems small with rise in number of women joining the mission. "We are not composting as much as we can due to space crunch," she said. She said if a bigger space is given to them, they can ...

Changing horses midway won't help, says Farooq; bats for Guv rule in J&K 18.5.2017 deccanherald.com
National Conference president Farooq Abdullah today said imposition of governors rule in Jammu and Kashmir is "unavoidable and imperative" to restore normalcy and peace in the Valley. The former chief minister also seemed to have suggested that replacing the chief minister by some BJP leader, as reported by some media "would not help" the PDP-BJP alliance . "Imposition of governors rule and placing the legislative assembly under suspended animation is unavoidable and imperative to restore normalcy and peace in Kashmir... The PDP-BJP alliance is bereft of a political agenda and has been forged with the singular purpose of attaining power. "The alleged Agenda of the Alliance (the common minimum programme between the alliance partners) has been torn to shreds and debunked by the BJP. As far as the PDP is concerned, they gave the Agenda of the Alliance a discreet burial when (former chief minister) Mufti (Mohammad Sayeed) passed away (last year)", Abdullah said in a statement here. The Member of Parliament ...

Women raise pro-freedom slogans before Mehbooba 16.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was left embarrassed on Tuesday after scores of women stormed out of a government function, saying they were tricked into attending the event.

Mehbooba was hastily escorted out of the venue after the protesting women raised pro-freedom slogans, eyewitnesses told DH. Some women even threw chairs.

Chaos broke out in the morning when some women, mostly from the volatile south Kashmir, raised pro-freedom slogans outside a conference centre where the event was being held.

Sources said the security agencies had warned organisers of trouble and suggested that the chief minister stay away from the programme. But the Jammu & Kashmir rural development department, the organisers of the event, insisted that the function should go ahead as scheduled.

Mehbooba was to interact with women's self-help groups at the function organised as part of 'Umeed' scheme.
