Aligarh, Sep 20 : Specialists at the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College of Aligarh Muslim University successfully removed a rare tumour from the heart of a 60-year-old female patient. In the past two years the JNMC has successfully conducted 200 cardiac surgeries.

Harpyari, a resident of Mendu, Hathras, experienced chest pain and breathing difficulty during exertion. She consulted several doctors before reaching the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC) of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), where she was advised immediate surgery after the diagnosis showed a rare tumour pressing her heart on the left-side chambers.

Harpyari underwent the surgery with a 30-minute stoppage of heartbeats while a cardiopulmonary bypass machine kept her alive, said Dr Mohd Azam Haseen, Chairman, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, who performed the surgery with a team comprising of Dr Sumit Pratap Singh and Dr M Ghazanfar.

“The tumour was removed successfully and the patient’s heart was reconstructed,” said Dr Sumit Singh adding that Harpyari has been discharged and asked to meet the doctors for follow up.

“We knew from the planning and diagnosis stage that the life-threatening tumour could significantly reduce blood flow through the heart,” said Haseen and his team members.

The surgery intervention was planned by former AMU Pro Vice Chancellor and cardiothoracic surgeon, Prof M H Beg.

Dr Nadeem Raza provided anaesthesia to the patient before the surgery; while Dr Sabir Ali Khan, Dr Shekhar, Dr Shabbah, Dr Noha and Dr Ahmad Ammar were the clinical perfusionists.

Lucknow, Jan 17 : Well known Kathak dancer, Manjari Chaturvedi was allegedly forced to stop her performance midway at an event organised by UP government here on Thursday, because she was performing on a ‘qawwali’.

Chaturvedi alleged that while she was performing, the music was stopped and an announcement was made for the next act.

“I thought it was a technical glitch but then the next act was announced. It was clear that this was not an error. When I asked the concerned officials, I was told ‘qawwali nahi chalegi yahan’ (qawaali cannot happen here),” she told a news channel.

The artist said that she was allotted 45 minutes for her act and it was pre-planned, yet her performance was stopped and no explanation was provided.

“I have never encountered this kind of thing before in my two-decade old career,” she said.

While the concerned officials were unwilling to comment, a government spokesman denied the allegations and said that the act had to be completed in time since dinner had been served.

“Since, the programme was running late, it had to be trimmed. Manjari Chaturvedi had done two performances and third was underway. Since the programme was running late and there was a Braj performance that was to take place and we wanted all performers to get a chance, the act was stopped. The performance was cut short due to ‘organizational compulsions and not due to any religious or linguistic bias’.

Ruckus in Tripura House over ex-minister’s arrest

Tripura Assembly

Agartala, Jan 17 : The winter session of the Tripura assembly began here on Friday amid an uproar by the opposition Left legislators over the arrest of senior CPI(M) leader and former minister Badal Chowdhury.

Barely some minutes into Governor Ramesh Bais’s customary speech on the opening day of the first session, the opposition members led by Tapan Chakraborty rushed into the well of the House to protest against the arrest of Chowdhury in a “false case”, that led to the disruption of the proceedings for about half an hour.

Outside the assembly, the CPI(M)’s youth wing — the Democratic Youth Federation of India — also organised a rally to protest on the same issue.

The Tripura police in October, 2019, arrested veteran CPI-M leader and former PWD and Finance Minister Badal Chowdhury and ex-PWD Chief Engineer Sunil Bhowmik in connection with “corruption charges in implementation of Rs 638 crore projects”.

The police in the same case has been looking for former Chief Secretary Yash Pal Singh, who was the Principal Secretary (PWD) in 2008-09. Bhowmik recently got bail from the Tripura High Court while Chowdhury, deputy leader of the Left group in the state assembly, is in custody since October 21.

According to Law and Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath, the Public Works Department under the Left Front government in 2008-09 had clubbed together 13 projects — five bridges, five buildings and three road projects — being implemented at a cost of Rs 638 crore on cost-plus norms.

Terming it the “biggest scam in the history of Tripura”, Nath said “Rs 168.13 crore had been siphoned off.”

Former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar, who is the opposition leader in the state assembly, had earlier said there was no corruption during the 35-year rule (1978-1988 and 1993-2018) of the Left parties in Tripura.

“Instead, state infrastructure and all other sectors improved in the state,” Sarkar had told the media adding that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had hatched a conspiracy against CPI-M central committee member Chowdhury to malign the previous Left governments.

Object CAA, but obey Constitution: Kerala Governor to state

Arif Mohammad Khan

New Delhi, Jan 17 : Claiming that “dissent is the essence of democracy”, Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan cited the Constitution to accuse the Pinarayi Vijayan government of violating the law on key issues like passing a resolution or challenging the CAA in the Supreme Court, without keeping Khan in the loop.

“My role is to see that the state works according to the rules, I’m not claiming supremacy,” said Khan while addressing an impromptu press conference in New Delhi.

He said: “As far as I’m concerned the rules of duties are clear, it’s already established how the Chief Minister is supposed to approach me. The CM is duty-bound to approach me before he passes any such orders.”

Khan threw the rule book to claim any state government is duty bound to keep the Governor informed about passing any resolution in the Assembly.

“As far as I’m concerned the rules of duties are clear, it’s already established how the Chief Minister is supposed to approach me. The CM is duty-bound to approach me before he passes any such orders,” said he.

The Kerala Chief Minister on Tuesday moved a resolution in the state Assembly demanding the scrapping of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

While Khan said that he has no problem with any divergent views be it on the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, NPR or NRC, all he cares is that rules are followed as stipulated by the Constitution.

“I have no problem with the government, opposition, or anybody holding a different view on CAA, NPR or NRC. Everyone is free…,” asserted the Governor. But he added taht the Kerala Government is in violation of rules of the Assembly.

Rebutting allegations that he is working at the behest of the central government, he said: “I am my own spokesperson.”

Highlighting, it’s not a power tussle between the Governor and the Chief Minister, Khan said, “My role is to see that the state works according to the rules, I’m not claiming supremacy.”
