Modi visits J-K tomorrow, three-tier security put in place 18.5.2018 General News
A three-tier security arrangement has been thrown around the city ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to all three regions of Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow, during which he will lay the foundation stone for the ambitious Zojila tunnel that will provide all-weather connectivity to Ladakh with the rest of the country. Ahead of the Prime Minister's visit, the NDA government announced a unilateral ceasefire on security forces' operations as a goodwill gesture during the holy month of Ramzan which started yesterday. The visit of the Prime Minister has generated hope among the people in the militancy-ravaged Kashmir Valley, which has been witnessing increased violence since 2016. During his Independence Day address last year, Modi had said bullets or abuses would not resolve the Kashmir issue and that it could be addressed by embracing every Kashmiri. Modi had them said his government was committed to restoring the lost glory of Kashmir and its status as "heaven on earth". "Na gaali

Water taps may completely dry up in India: study warns 12.4.2018 General News
Shrinking reservoirs in India, Morocco, Iraq and Spain could result in water taps going completely dry in these four countries, a study based on a new early warning satellite system has warned. According to the developers of the new satellite early warning system for the world's 500,000 dams, shrinking reservoirs in India, Morocco, Iraq and Spain could spark the next "day zero" water crisis, The Guardian reported. The system has named countries where shrinking reservoirs could lead to the taps completely drying up, the study said. Tensions have been apparent in India over the water allocations for two reservoirs connected by the Narmada river, it said.

Last month, the Gujarat state government halted irrigation .
