SC dismisses Teesta Setalvad's plea to defreeze bank a/cs 16.12.2017 DNA: India
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed activists Teesta Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand's petition challenging the October 2015 Gujarat High Court order that rejected their pleas to defreeze their personal bank accounts. The judgment pronounced by a bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justice AM Khanwilkar observed that authorities followed proper procedures in freezing the bank accounts in connection with a complaint filed by residents of the Gulbarg Society in Ahmedabad, Gujarat for misappropriation of funds. "Although both the sides have adverted to statement of accounts and vouchers to buttress their respective submissions, we do not deem it necessary, nor think it appropriate to analyse the same while considering the matter on hand which emanates from an application preferred by the appellants to de-freeze the stated bank accounts pending investigation of the case. Indisputably, the investigation is still in progress. The appellants will have to explain their position to the ...

The Supreme Court today dismissed the pleas of activist Teesta Setalvad, her husband and her two NGOs challenging the Gujarat High Court order rejecting their pleas for de-freezing of their personal bank accounts. A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the pleas are dismissed. Setalvad, her husband Javed Anand and their two NGOs -- Sabrang Trust and Citizens for Justice and Peace -- had challenged the October 7, 2015 verdict of the high court in the alleged misappropriation of funds received by their NGOs for Gujarat riot victims of 2002.

People in Godhra want to bury past; talk of jobs, power 10.12.2017 Deccan Herald - TOP STORIES RSS FEEDS
Fifteen years later, Godhra is all ready to bury the past and talk about the future. Few here want to relive the violent images of the Gujarat town that triggered riots in the state in 2002. They would rather discuss jobs, persistent power cuts and poor infrastructure which Godhra's voters believe are issues of concern in the ongoing Assembly election. That Godhra does not figure in the electoral or  political discourse in the state gladdens the heart of 30-year old Asim, who runs a motor vehicle's repair shop here. "I am happy that no big leader from any party is talking about Godhra this ti

Gujarat Elections 2017 | Godhra, where locals are back to basics of life even as scars remain 8.12.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
It's 6 PM in Godhra. A power cut has plunged the road that stretches out in front of the railway station into darkness. This is the same stretch that earned infamy around 15 years ago after a coach full of kar sevaks was burnt down in Godhra on the other side of the railway station. Fifty-nine people had died in the incident. The rains that poured under the impact of cyclone Ockhi makes the ride on the rundown road tougher. At a time when 'Janeudhaari Brahmin' and 'Babar bhakt' remarks are back in the political discourse in the run-up to the Assembly elections in Gujarat, Godhra is trying hard to keep pace. The election fight this time is between two leaders with Janata Dal roots — C K Raulji and Rajendra Patel — who are contesting on BJP and Congress tickets, respectively. Muslims are clearly inclined towards the Congress, but what can trouble the BJP more is the rebel factor from within. However, the BJP has made good inroads into the backward Bakshi Panch community, which has 90,000 votes as against ...

Indian economy back on track, GDP expands 6.3% in July-Sep quarter: Who said what 30.11.2017 DNA: India
Bouncing back from a three-year low, Indian economy has reversed a five-quarter slide in GDP growth to expand by 6.3 % in July-September quarter.  According to data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO), the GDP for Q2 stood at Rs 31.66 lakh crore, registering a growth of 6.3%, up from 5.7% reported during the first quarter of 2017-18.  Chief Statistician T C A Anant hinted that the GDP numbers could be revised upwards as businesses uncertain of the new Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime may have accounted for lesser taxes.  While the government was upbeat with the positive growth which came just ahead of the Gujarat Assembly polls, Opposition leaders said this was too early to arrive at a conclusion and government should wait longer to beat its chest.  Here is how people across the country have reacted to the GDP numbers:  Arun Jaitley, Union Finance Minister Government’s reforms to push economic growth are working can be seen from that manufacturing has shown robust growth of 7% in Q2 and services ...

The ghosts of the past don't subside so easily, it seems! How much ever we try to evade the fact, the incident we don't want to be named. The should not recalled or remembered anymore, while rest of us think that we should move on but for few people in Godhra that 2002 is just yesterday. 'Godhra 2002'. Godhra which is a place which has changed history of Gujarat and country, post 2002. Sadly, the people haven't moved yet, the ghastly incident which took place in 2002 is like just yesterday for most of them. Many of the Muslim pockets are craving for basic amenities even after years. Move on, for most of the people won't work here!
