Japan court rules government liable for Fukushima disaster 17.3.2017 deccanherald.com
A Japanese court today ruled for the first time that the government bears responsibility for the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster and ordered it and the plant operator to pay damages, officials and news reports said. A massive tsunami triggered by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake smashed into the Fukushima Daiichi power plant on Japans northeastern coast on March 11, 2011. The water overwhelmed reactor cooling systems and sent three into meltdown, spewing radiation over a wide area in Japans worst postwar disaster and the worlds most serious nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986. More than 10,000 people who fled over radiation fears have filed various group lawsuits against the government and operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO). In todays ruling, the Maebashi District Court, north of Tokyo, found both the government and TEPCO liable and ordered them to pay a total 38.6 million yen (USD 340,000) to plaintiffs, a court official told AFP, without specifying the number of plaintiffs.

Congress bats for strategic alliances to counter BJP in 2019 16.3.2017 Business Standard: News Now
Strategic alliances, rather than building up a national narrative against the BJP should be the focus of the Congress, ahead of the 2019 national elections, party strategists feel.The Congress, which was keen to present the recent five assembly polls as a 3:2 match, had to be content with 1:4 after the BJP manipulated smaller parties to form governments in Goa and Manipur. Rahul Gandhi has charged the saffron party of using money power to block the Congress from coming to power in the two states.After veteran Mani Shankar Aiyar suggested going back to the 2003 formula under which party chief Sonia Gandhi forged strategic alliances and took back power from the NDA at the centre in 2004, senior leader CP Joshi expressed similar views.Noting the political narrative has changed in the country, Joshi cited the example of Bihar assembly polls in 2015 where a JD-U-RJD-Congress grand alliance defeated the BJP-led NDA.According to Joshi, a similar formation could have stopped the BJP in Uttar .

Toll and challenge of Fukushima's N waste 14.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Six years after the largest nuclear disaster in a quarter-century, Japanese officials have still not solved a basic problem: what to do with an ever-growing pile of radioactive waste. Each form of waste at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, where three reactors melted down after an earthquake and a tsunami on March 11, 2011, presents its own challenges. — 400 tonnes of contaminated water per day: The Tokyo Electric Power Company is pumping water non-stop through the three reactors to cool melted fuel that remains too hot and radioactive to remove. About 400 tonnes of water pass through the reactors every day, including groundwater that seeps in. The water picks up radiation in the reactors and then is diverted into a decontamination facility. But the decontamination filters cannot remove all the radioactive material. So for now, all this water is being stored in 1,000 gray, blue and white tanks on the grounds. The tanks already hold 9,62,000 tonnes of contaminated water, and Tokyo ...
