Delhi govt hiring extra buses for Odd-Even days

New Delhi, Oct 17 : The Delhi Cabinet on Thursday decided to hire 2,000 extra buses to ensure enough public transport from November 4 to 15 during the Odd-Even scheme days.

The Cabinet, chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, approved the Transport Department’s proposal for the engagement of extra CNG operated buses during the Odd-Even scheme days to augment the public transport. The Cabinet also approved the fixation of rates for these buses.

“The Department informed that for bringing down levels of air pollution, reducing road congestion and improving public transport during Odd-Even scheme days between November 4 and 15, it has allowed the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) to hire CNG operated 2,000 contract carriage buses,” an official statement said.

Delhi Transport Corporation has been directed to engage a sufficient number of additional buses from the private operators during the Odd-Even Scheme, as was done in the first and the second phase of the scheme, it said.

“The DTC will provide conductors in these buses and will keep the revenue generated by operating these buses, whereas the driver will be provided by the owner of the bus, besides bearing all other responsibilities in relation to operation of buses including the maintenance of the buses,” it added.

The Department informed that private operators will be asked through public notices to offer their buses as was done during the first two Odd-Even programmes in 2016.

The cabinet also accorded its approval for the hiring charges of different categories of buses as per the recommendation of the Committee constituted by Managing Director of the DTC.


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.

Anti-CAA: Bengal CM wants every student to visit 1K households



Kolkata, Jan 27 : West Bengal Chief Minister and state’s ruling Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Monday asked every member of the party’s student wing to visit 1,000 houses to convince the people about the party’s stand against the Citizenship Amendment) Act.

“I will urge every student to visit 1,000 houses to convince them on the party’s stand against the CAA,” Banerjee said at a workshop of the Trinamool Congress Chhattra Parishad.

Banerjee asked the students to immerse themselves in the campaign against the CAA, National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).

“Students have to campaign from house to house, raise the issue while chatting at tea stalls, at stationery shops, restaurants,” she said during her speech at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

At the same time, Banerjee took a dig at state BJP president Dilip Ghosh’s “chai pe charcha” (mass contact programmes at tea stalls).

“Why are they going to tea stalls to campaign in favour of the CAA? Why will one have to go to tea stalls solely for propaganda purpose?” she asked, demanding the BJP led NDA Central government scrap the law.

Accusing the BJP of misleading the people, she said: “They should know we are not bonded labourers, but citizens of the country”.

Banerjee also told the students that she was coming out with a handbook on the state’s performance in various sectors. “You collect this handbook so that you are better equipped to take the message of the government and the party to the people”.

She slammed BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya for linking those consuming flattened rice (poha) to Bangladeshi infiltrators.

“The country is not made of only one colour. It is a multi-colour nation with diverse religions, linguistic groups. We have to take everybody along. Our soil forbids us from dividing the people,” she said.
