Modi should probe corruption scandals occurring under his government

Published

Narendra Modi

Modi government will be remembered as an anti-secular government that sowed the seeds of anti-nationalism that engulfed the country in civil war like conditions and is solely obsessed with criticising and spewing venom against Gandhi family. In these 42 months of their tenure, Modi and his ministers have been attacking Congress rule as if the people of India have voted only for this purpose.

The Saffron party fails to understand that it is the Congress government that lifted India from poverty after partition and settled the people displaced from Pakistan who had migrated here empty handed. This was indeed a herculean task.

But Modi’s government reversed the tide and the settled people have been pushed into poverty and joblessness. His policies have broken the spine of the Indian people and will find it difficult to recover the loss.

While former prime minister Manmohan Singh enjoyed a clean image and on the mere accusations of corruption against some ministers by the Opposition, he started inquiries and probes against his ministers and even compelled them to resign.

Where as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has dismissed the decision of the electorate by giving major portfolio to Arun Jaitley who had been defeated in the Amritsar Lok Sabha elections. Rather Jaitley has been gifted with the portfolios of Finance Minister and minister of Corporate affairs just because he is the financer of the Bharatiya Janata party.

When media exposed a corruption case against BJP President Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, the BJP President filed defamation case against it and the Modi government and his ministers out-rightly rejected to probe the scandal. The WIRE published an article alleging an exponential 16,000 times growth of a company, Temple enterprise, co-owned by Jay Shah after Narendra Modi became the prime minister of India.

Amit Shah defended his son and asked the Opposition to prove the allegations in the court and Home Minister Rajnath Singh  also joined him saying  “no need of investigations.”

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has charged Gujarat chief Minister Vijay Rupani’s entity Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) for  ‘manipulative trade’in a little known company Saran chemicals and imposed a fine of Rs 15 Lakh. And the Opposition Congress has asked to set up a probe in all the above corruption scandals but the Modi government is instead providing shelter to them. Modi should stop patting his own back while the economy is in doldrums.

Now, Modi should clarify why he is shielding the corrupt and prefers to keep mum on these crucial issues. He garnered votes on the rhetoric of eliminating corruption, upliftment of the poor and the farmers but has thrust the people of India into poverty, misery and seized their money terming as black money.

Male sex hormones may help treat breast cancer: Study

While endocrine therapy is standard-of-care for estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, resistance to these drugs is the major cause of breast cancer mortality.

Sydney : Researchers have found new evidence about the positive role of androgens, commonly thought of as male sex hormones but also found at lower levels in women, in breast cancer treatment.

In normal breast development, estrogen stimulates and androgen inhibits growth at puberty and throughout adult life.

Abnormal estrogen activity is responsible for the majority of breast cancers, but the role of androgen activity in this disease has been controversial.

The new research published in the journal Nature Medicine showed that androgens have potential for treatment of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer.

A cancer is called estrogen receptor positive if it has receptors for estrogen, according to Breastcancer.org.

Using cell-line and patient-derived models, the global team, including researchers at the University of Adelaide and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Australia, demonstrated that androgen receptor activation by natural androgen or a new androgenic drug had potent anti-tumour activity in all estrogen receptor positive breast cancers, even those resistant to current standard-of-care treatments.

In contrast, androgen receptor inhibitors had no effect.

“This work has immediate implications for women with metastatic estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, including those resistant to current forms of endocrine therapy,” said lead researcher Theresa Hickey, Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide.

“We provide compelling new experimental evidence that androgen receptor stimulating drugs can be more effective than existing (e.g. Tamoxifen) or new (e.g. Palbociclib) standard-of-care treatments and, in the case of the latter, can be combined to enhance growth inhibition,” said Wayne Tilley, Director of the Dame Roma Mitchell Cancer Research Laboratories, Adelaide Medical School, University of Adelaide.

Androgens were historically used to treat breast cancer, but knowledge of hormone receptors in breast tissue was rudimentary at the time and the treatment’s efficacy misunderstood.

Androgen therapy was discontinued due to virilising side effects and the advent of anti-estrogenic endocrine therapies.

While endocrine therapy is standard-of-care for estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, resistance to these drugs is the major cause of breast cancer mortality.

“The new insights from this study should clarify the widespread confusion over the role of the androgen receptor in estrogen receptor driven breast cancer,” said Elgene Lim, a breast oncologist and Head of the Connie Johnson Breast Cancer Research Lab at the Garvan Institute.

“Given the efficacy of this treatment strategy at multiple stages of disease in our study, we hope to translate these findings into clinical trials as a new class of endocrine therapy for breast cancer.”

The actress added that she “always had this need to prove myself to everyone around me that I work really hard”, adding: “I couldn’t walk in a room without everyone already having an opinion.”

Elizabeth Olsen

Los Angeles, Jan 19 : Hollywood star Elizabeth Olsen says she once thought of changing her surname and distance herself from the success of her family because it was insanity growing up in the spotlight.

“It was insanity. There were times when my sisters would always be spotted and I would be in the car with them and it would really freak me out. It has helped me navigate how I want to approach my career,” said the actress, whose older sisters are Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.

The actress added that she “always had this need to prove myself to everyone around me that I work really hard”, adding: “I couldn’t walk in a room without everyone already having an opinion.”

Elizabeth opened up om the fears of nepotism.

“The thing about nepotism is the fear that you don’t earn or deserve the work. There was even a part of me when I was a little girl that thought if I’m gonna be an actress I’m going to go by Elizabeth Chase, which is my middle name. And then, once I started working, I was like, ‘I love my family, I like my name, I love my sisters. Why would I be so ashamed of that?’ It’s fine now,” she said.

The actress said fame has made her more of a homebody.

“Fame has also made me someone who is more of a homebody than maybe I would like to be but I know where not to go. If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with the gym, then I’d go to the grocery store, because it’s my favourite thing,” Elizabeth told The Sun.
