Residents of nearly 12 villages in the district have decided to boycott the upcoming Bhandara-Gondia Lok Sabha bypoll, after failing to get a response over their demand for proper irrigation facilities. The villagers, under the aegis of 'Bawanthadi Prakalp Sangharsh Samiti', a local organisation, earlier passed a resolution at a gram sabha meeting to boycott every election in their area, including the Bhandara-Gondia bypoll scheduled on May 28, if their demand was not met. The samiti's president, Balkrishna Gadhve, said in March this year they had submitted a memorandum to the district collector demanding proper water supply to these villages under the government's 'Bawanthadi irrigation project'.

National Capital to sizzle with mercury set to touch 44°C soon 22.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The city continued to sizzle on Monday as it recorded maximum temperature of 42 degrees Celsius and the sky remained clear adding to the heat. The meteorological department has predicted no respite from the rising mercurial level in the coming days as it is expected to touch 44 degrees Celsius soon. Monday saw a minimum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and strong surface wind during the day. The weatherman has advised people to stay indoors during the daytime and keep themselves properly covered and hydrated if they step out. The minimum temperature will oscillate between 26 to 27 degrees Celsius. While the summer it at its peak, the water crisis in the national Capital looms even larger this summer and all that the people can expect from the government is a series of blame game with neighbour Haryana. The city receives its water from Haryana, which of late has cut short the supply. Only last week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had written to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar about the ...

The Maharashtra State Contractors Association, an umbrella body of over two lakh small contractors registered with the state government, has called for a meeting on May 30 to chalk out a plan of action over their woes.
