Anantnag LS bypoll postponed to May 25 in violence hit Kashmir

NEW DELHI, Apr 10: The Election Commission tonight deferred the Anantnag Lok Sabha bypoll to May 25, citing inputs by the Jammu and Kashmir Government that law-and-order situation is not conducive. The by-election was to be held on April 12. The EC notification said the state administration apprehends that "violent attempts" can be made by miscreants to thwart the poll process. It pointed at large scale violence which took place in Srinagar yesterday during a similar bypoll. Earlier the Election Commission today discussed the unprecedented election-day violence and poor voter turnout in the bypoll to the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat. Eight people were killed yesterday in firing by security forces in the Srinagar Lok Sabha bypoll where only 7.14 per cent of the electorate came out to cast their vote.

Bangladesh PM pitches for more trade channels with India

New Delhi, Apr 10: Bangladesh is looking to open more trade channels with India, widen footprint of border haats and open up routes that were closed during the 1965 war, visiting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said today. Observing that nothing is solved by confrontation but friendship is the solution to all problems, she said the two nations have been able to establish "profound mutual trust and exemplary friendship" over the years. India and Bangladesh have been unable to finalise the long-pending Teesta water-sharing agreement, primarily due to opposition by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. Hasina, who is on a four-day visit to India, urged Indian industry houses to invest in Bangladesh, especially

Rahul Gandhi 'non-serious' leader, Congress will get 20 seats in 2019: Vishwajit Rane

New Delhi, Apr 10: Vishwajit Rane, who quit the Congress to join the BJP last week, says that party Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is "non-serious" and an inaccessible leader and under his leadership the grand old party would be reduced to just 20 seats in the 2019 general election. "Congress has a non-serious leader called Rahul Gandhi. He is not serious about the people of the state who give you a mandate, not serious about government formation. He is not even accessible. Seriousness of a leader is very important for a party to grow," Rane, son of former Goa Chief Minister Pratapsinh Rane, said in an interview. Rane, who was elected from the Valpoi assembly constituency in the February 4 polls, resigned from the Congress accusing the party leadership of letting


,'No, I'm not joining the BJP', says Shashi Tharoor

NEW DELHI, Apr 10: In the face of several people asking him this question, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor wants to let everyone know once and for all that he's not joining the BJP. It's unclear where this conjecture emerged from, but perhaps it was because last month he wrote an essay about the merits of a Presidential system of government versus a Parliamentary system. "In view of the number of people asking, let me repeat that my convictions are a matter of record and they do not match those of (the) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)," Tharoor said yesterday in a post on Facebook. The Thiruvananthapuram MP described unequivocally why his ideology and that of the ruling BJP are a mismatch. "For 40 years I have spoken and written in defence of a pluralist India with equal rights for all its citizens and communities. On this, no compromise," Tharoor explained. What he means, by implication, is that the BJP's idea of India

France isn’t responsible for mass arrest of Jews in Paris during WW II

Paris, Apr 10: Far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen drew protests from her political rivals and the Israeli government on Monday by denying the French state’s responsibility for a mass arrest of Jews in Paris during World War Two. Two weeks before the first round of the election in which she is a frontrunner, Le Pen touched a raw nerve by reopening debate about the state’s role in one of the darkest episodes in French history under the Nazi occupation. “I think France isn’t responsible for the Vel d’Hiv,” Le Pen said on Sunday, referring to the German-ordered roundup by French police of 13,000 Jews in July 1942. Most were crammed into the Velodrome d’Hiver cycling stadium, commonly known as the Vel d’Hiv, before..........

Russia, Iran warn US over strikes in Syria
Moscow/Tehran, Apr 10: Russia and Iran have issued a direct warning to US President Donald Trump, saying his missile strike on a Syrian airbase crossed "red lines" and they would respond to any new aggression and increase support for their ally. A joint command centre consisting of the forces of Russia, Iran and other allies supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in a statement on Sunday, described the April 7 attack on Shayrat airfield in Syria's Homs province as "a dangerous act of aggression". The US targeted the airbase last week with nearly 60 Tomahawk missiles, killing six Syrian soldiers and nine civilians, including four children, and destroying nine warplanes, according to a news agency.
