Britain's plan to send warship to South China Sea likely to stoke tensions with Beijing 28.7.2017 DNA: Top News
Britain plans to send a warship to the disputed South China Sea next year to conduct freedom of navigation exercises, Defence Minister Michael Fallon said on Thursday, a move likely to anger Beijing. Britain would increase its presence in the waters after it sent four British fighter planes for joint exercises with Japan in the region last year, he said. "We hope to send a warship to region next year. We have not finalised exactly where that deployment will take place but we won't be constrained by China from sailing through the South China Sea," Fallon told Reuters. "We have the right of freedom of navigation and we will exercise it." The presence of a British vessel threatens to stoke tensions, escalated by China's naval build-up and its increasingly assertive stance. The comments by Fallon came after Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the country's two new aircraft carriers would be sent to the region. Johnson did not specify where exactly the vessels would be sent once operational in ...

JNU students should take patriotic oath: Meenakshi Lekhi 28.7.2017 DNA: Mumbai
BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi proposed in the Lok Sabha on Thursday that students should be made to take an oath of nationalism in institutions like Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). JNU students must take an oath that "Whether we are alive or not, Mother, your glory shall live... the glory of Bharat Mata and our nationalism should always live," she said during Zero Hour. Lekhi, who defeated Congress stalwart Ajay Maken in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, also endorsed JNU Vice-Chancellor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar's proposal to install a disused Army tank on the campus to remind students of the sacrifices and valour of soldiers. Lekhi criticised attempts to create a "controversy" on the issue and said, "A controversy is being created following the Vice-Chancellor's views. The JNU is run by tax-payers' money. Anti-India slogans were raised inside the campus. It is an insult of those protecting the border. I think somewhere there is a problem with the administration and ideology." She said there was an old aircraft ...

UID will be must for paperless air travel experience: Govt in Rajya Sabha 25.7.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
For a paperless and seamless travel experience, air travellers will have to provide a digital identification number at the time of booking a ticket, the Rajya Sabha was informed on Tuesday.  But no specific timeline has been fixed for implementing the technology-enabled seamless passenger facilities across airports in the country, Minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha said in a written reply. The civil aviation ministry had last month announced that it would be mandatory for passengers to provide a unique identification (UID), like an Aadhaar card, passport or PAN so as to avail the paperless and seamless travel experience.
