New Delhi, Nov 8 : The Congress on Friday slammed the government for removing SPG cover of the Gandhi family, terming it as a “sinister” and “vindictive” move.

“The BJP has descended to the ultimate personal vendetta mechanism, compromising the lives of family members of two former Prime Ministers to acts of terror and violence,” Congress leader Ahmed Patel tweeted.

Congress working committee member Jitin Prasada said this was a “sinister” move.

“Withdrawing the SPG security cover of a family that has lost its family members in the line of duty to brutal political assassinations reveals the sinister vendetta politics of this govt, he said.

Earlier, Centre on Friday removed Special Protection Group (SPG) cover of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul and daughter Priyanka.

They will now be provided ‘Z plus’ security cover by Central Reserve Police Force

2G restoration brings little relief in Kashmir

Srinagar: The restoration of mobile internet, 2G, in Kashmir after nearly six months of no internet has proved to be of little help due to extremely slow speed.

Even permissible sites listed as ‘white listed sites’ by the government are not accessible at times.

“We are not able to upload photos, let alone mail them,” Amir, a photo journalist said. “The speed is extremely slow and the websites just don’t open.”

For broadband restoration the businessmen are signing bonds committing not to allow IP address for accessing social media.

The bond also bars use of ‘VPNs’, WiFi, encrypted files, videos and uploading of photos. All USB ports of the computer will have to be disabled also.

The business units or the company will be responsible for the breach or misuse of the internet.

The business house will provide complete access to all its content and infrastructure as and when required by security agencies.

MAC (minimum access control) will ensure restriction to the use of internet access to registered devices through single PC.

That the restoration of 2G has proved ineffective is also evident from the fact that reporters continue to throng the Media Centre, an internet facility that J&K government has set up for them in the Information Department at Residency Road.

Don’t call me ‘Hindu Hridaysamrat’: Raj Thackeray

Raj Thackeray-wefornews

Mumbai: After a howl of protests from the ruling Shiv Sena, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray on Monday ordered his partymen not to refer to him as the ‘Hindu Hridaysamrat’ (Emperor of Hindu Hearts).

“There are some social media posts with banners mentioning Raj Thackeray as the ‘Hindu Hridaysamrat’. He has instructed us not to refer to him by that title since the late Balasaheb Thackeray is the only ‘Hindu Hridaysamrat’,” a sombre party senior leader Bala Nandgaonkar later told mediapersons here.

Thackeray had come briefly at a party meeting to finalise details for the proposed February 9 procession and rally in support of CAA-NRC-NPR on Monday, which he had announced last week.

The development came four days after the MNS’s first-ever mega-convention in Mumbai wherein several party leaders took the occasion to proclaim him as the new ‘Hindu Hridaysamrat’, besides the formal political launch of his 27-year old son Amit Thackeray.

The Shiv Sena founder-patriarch, the late Bala Thackeray was usually referred to by this title within and outside the party.

Thane MNS President Avinash Jadhav and others referred to Raj as the ‘new Hindu Hridaysamrat’ which was greeted with thunderous applause at the convention on January 23, the 94th birth anniversary of the late Bal Thackeray.

However, a host of top Sena leaders slammed the MNS for seeking to usurp the title of ‘Hindu Hridaysamrat’ and questioned Raj Thackeray’s credentials for deserving the designation in the first place.

On Monday, Raj Thackeray also urged his partymen to accord respect and dignity to the MNS’ newly introduced flag which bears the Royal Seal of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as its symbol, though the new flag will not be used for election purposes.

Nandgaonkar said while the rally will be held at Azad Maidan in south-Mumbai, the MNS was awaiting police clearances for the route to be taken by the procession for the venue of the public meeting.

BSP president Mayawati tweeted: “Wrong cases filed against women and others protesting against CAA/NRC by the BJP-led Uttar Pradesh government should be immediately withdrawn, and those who lost their lives during this time should also be extended proper help. This is the demand of BSP.”

In several districts of Uttar Pradesh, women have been staging protests against the CAA.

In Lucknow, at the historic Clock Tower, women have been on protest since January 17.

Station House Officer of Thakurganj Police Station, Pramod Mishra, had said on Saturday: “Around 100 women protesters have been booked for violating prohibitory orders at the Clock Tower here.”

He said that a case has been registered against 10 women and 100 unidentified women for violating Section 144 of CrPC, while protesting at Clock Tower. Apart from this, eight persons have been arrested,”
