The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in a meeting in Mumbai on Friday took umbrage at the arrest of former MP Sameer Bhujbal in an alleged money laundering case, terming it a "vengeful" act. The meeting called by Maharashtra NCP unit secretary Dilip Khaire was attended by state general secretary Nanasaheb Mahale and party corporators Arjun Tile, Kavita Kardak, Ranjan Thakare, among others, a release said. "During various raids conducted by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials, nothing (incriminating) was found. The raids were conducted with a motive to disturb Bhujbal family," it said. The members alleged that the ruling party at the Centre and in the state has failed to solve the issues of farmer suicides, drought and increasing crime and was trying to hide its failure by maligning the Bhujbal family's image.

Court can't test validity of personal law: Muslim group to Supreme Court 5.2.2016 DNA: Opinion
The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind to become a party in a suo motu PIL instituted to deal with various issues including gender bias against Muslim women, with the organisation contending that the court cannot test the validity of personal law. A bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justices A K Sikri and R Banumathi, which had issued notices to the Attorney General and National Legal Services Authority on the PIL, directed the Centre and the organisation to file reply within six weeks. In its plea, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has contended that the apex court cannot examine the constitutional validity of the practices of marriage, divorce and maintenance in Muslim personal law on the ground that provisions of personal laws cannot be challenged by the reason of fundamental rights. "Personal laws do not derive their validity on the ground that they have been passed or made by a legislature or other competent authority. The foundational sources of personal law are their respective ...

VVIP chopper deal: ED seeks extradition of Britisher, alleged to be middleman 4.2.2016 DNA: Top News
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sought extradition of a British national, alleged to be a middleman in the Rs 3,600-crore VVIP chopper deal, on charges of money laundering. Officials said the agency has moved an official request in this regard to the Union Home Ministry with the copy of a court-issued non-bailable warrant and a recently notified Interpol Red Corner Notice (RCN) against the said middleman-- Christian Michel James. The extradition request, it is understood, has been sent after the ED ascertained James movements in either one of the constituents of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) or a European country and it suspects he may leave the said country before Interpol reaches him. The agency has earlier told a Delhi court that James was present in Dubai. "The Ministry of Home Affairs is looking into the request," a senior official said without elaborating further. Sometime back, both the ED and CBI had got an Interpol warrant issued against 54-year-old James in this case.

Kerala Assembly Polls: Election Commission rejects demand to raise expenditure limit of candidates 4.2.2016 DNA: Popular News
The Election Commission on Thursday rejected the demand of certain political parties to raise the expenditure limit of candidates contesting Kerala assembly polls. "We have a ceiling laid down which is Rs 28 lakh. Unfortunately, very few winning candidates report expenditure to this limit. They generally report only 40 to 50 per cent (of the limit amount)," Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Nasim Zaidi told reporters after a day long review of poll preparedness with political leaders and state officials. "So where is the justification to raise the expenditure amount? They do not even use that much amount. I think the current level is Ok, which we have revised two years ago," Zaidi said. "One or two political parties had raised this issue at the review meeting," he added. Asked whether the Assembly polls will be held in April or May, he said the Commission was still at the planning stage. However, he said the election process would be completed before May 30.

Tanzanian woman assaulted | Rahul Gandhi's silence exposes his hyprocrisy: BJP 4.2.2016 DNA: Mumbai
BJP targeted Congress on Thursday for its "hypocrisy" in not initiating action against the culprits in the Tanzanian woman stripping case in Bengaluru and for doing politics of opportunism, even as it questioned Rahul Gandhi's "silence" over the incident. The party accused the Congress government in Karnataka of covering up the incident and said its "inaction" has brought disrepute to Bangalore city. It also demanded immediate action, including transfer of DGP and suspension of police officers concerned. Citing rape incidents in Tripura, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh, where action is yet to be taken against the culprits, BJP said Rahul and other leaders pick and choose incidents to give them political colour and have no interest in victims. "Such a big incident has happened and so much time has passed, still Rahul and Congress are silent for something that has happened under the very nose of their government there. No action has been taken. This shows how much hypocrisy is there in them and how they play ...
