Navin asks Centre to reconsider coal mine allotment decision 12.4.2018 General News
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today asked the Centre to re-examine its decision to allot four coal mines to Western Coalfields Ltd (WCL), instead of Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd, which already operates several mines in the state. "It has been brought to my notice that the Ministry of Coal has decided to allot four coal mines of Odisha namely, Rampia, Dip side of Rampia, Ghogarpalli and Dip extension of Ghogarpalli to WCL instead of MCL, which is already operating several coal mines in the region, Patnaik said in a letter to Union Coal Minister Piyush Goyal. Operationalisation of coal mines requires close coordination with the local administration for land acquisition, rehabilitation and resettlement of project affected families, he said.

AMC should use 'Ahmedabad', instead of 'Amdavad': PIL 11.4.2018 General News
A Public Interest litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Gujarat High Court seeking a direction to the municipal body to use 'Ahmedabad' instead of 'Amdavad' in its official documents. The Sunni Awami Forum, a trust, has stated in the PIL that the city got its name, 'Ahmedabad', from Ahmed Shah, who founded it in 1411, and the civic body be asked to use "correct" name in it official communication. The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) uses the name 'Amdavad' in official documents, letterheads, advertisements, etc., in India and abroad, and uses 'chabutara' (a raised platform) as a symbol of the city in "blatant disregard of the city's highly significant Indo-Islamic architecture", the PIL says. A division bench of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice V M Pancholi today asked the petitioner to get more details on the process of naming a city before it issues notices to the AMC and the state government. Using 'Amdavad' is also misleading for tourists who come from all over the

Public hearings by Raje were sham: Raj Cong 10.4.2018 General News
Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot today alleged that public hearings conducted by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in the state were a sham. He said only those who had a token were allowed to take part in the chief minister's public hearing and it was yet another attempt to mislead common people. In the last four days in Sikar, common people were kept away from public hearing. It is discrimination in the name of public hearing. Only those having a token given by government officials are allowed to take part in the event, Pilot said. He accused the BJP government of pretending to redress people's problem by conducting public hearing. "The BJP government neglected people for over last four years and is now holding public hearings in the election year," he said. He exuded confidence that people of the state will give an apt reply to the government in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly election.
