Modi PM

New Delhi, May 11 : In a clear message to the Chief Ministers that Indians must plan for the new world reality, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday that public activities should be increased while reducing the chances of the transmission of coronavirus.

“We can now further focus our strategy in this battle against coronavirus, as should be the case. We have a two-fold challenge — to reduce the transmission rate of the disease, and increase public activity gradually, while adhering to all the guidelines. We will have to work towards achieving both these objectives,” the Prime Minister said while addressing the Chief Ministers of all the states through a video conference, the fifth after the Covid-19 outbreak.

Modi also stressed that all efforts should be made to stop the spread of Covid-19 to rural areas. By and large, rural India has fared better than urban India in the battle against Covid-19 so far. Modi also said that the states’ suggestions on a roadmap for economic rejuvenation have been given due consideration.

Several Chief Ministers pointed out that with the return of migrants, there is a need to concentrate on strict implementation of social distancing guidelines, usage of masks and sanitisation in order to curb the spread of Covid-19, especially in the rural areas.

Most of the CMs pointed towards the need to strengthen the medical and health infrastructure in the country. The CMs also highlighted the importance of compulsory quarantine for all those who have returned from abroad.

Giving their suggestions to improve the economy, the Chief Ministers sought support to MSMEs, infrastructure projects like power, easing of interest rates on loans and assured market access for agricultural produce.

In a significant statement, Modi said the world post the pandemic won’t be the same, just the way it wasn’t the same after the World Wars.

“Now the world will be pre-Corona and post-Corona. And this would entail significant changes in how we function,” he said.

While asking the CMs to be prepared for the new reality, Modi used the term “Jan Se Lekar Jag Tak” (from an individual to the whole of humanity), which he claimed to be the new way of life.

In the absence of a vaccine, he cautioned the CMs to enforce social distancing even though industries are being opened up. “As we look at the gradual withdrawal of the lockdown, we should constantly remember that till we do not find a vaccine or a solution, the biggest weapon with us to the fight the virus is social distancing,” Modi said.

Asking for state specific customised suggestions, the Prime Minister said, “I request you all to share with me by May 15 a broad strategy on how you each one of you would want to deal with the lockdown regime in your particular state. I want states to make a blueprint on how to deal with various nuances during and after the gradual easing of the lockdown.”

While a couple of Chief Ministers objected to the resumption of train services, the Prime Minister said that it was needed to boost economic activity, but maintained that all the routes won’t be resumed. Only a limited number of trains would operate, he said.

The Prime Minister didn’t give any clear indication as to will the lockdown be extended further. But will there be more relaxation? “Very likely,” he said.

“I am of the firm view that the measures needed in the first phase of lockdown were not needed during the second phase, and similarly the measures needed in the third phase are not needed in the fourth,” he said.

Thanking the Chief Ministers for sharing their experience, Modi said that India will fight the pandemic as a team.

This was Modi’s fifth interaction with the Chief Ministers since the imposition of the nationwide lockdown.

Gyanendra Shukla

New Delhi, July 14: Four years back, a young man changed his sex. Three years on, she fell in love with a man. Both decided to marry. However, in a year tragedy struck and husband Gyanendra Shukla slit his wife’s throat and left her to die.

The brutal attack took place in South Delhi’s Amar Colony. Shukla expected his wife not to survive when he fled leaving her in a pool of blood.

The woman, not only survived but gathered enough strength to made a video call to her father and tell him about the gruesome attack that took place on July 11.

“The father made a PCR call from Gurugram, while the profusely bleeding wife dragged herself to the door and started knocking with a hammer to raise an alarm and get someone’s help because her vocal chords were slashed,” said DCP South East Delhi R.P. Meena. Her neighbours shifted her to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Shukla was arrested the same day. He hails from Uttar Pradesh’s Mahoba district.

His interrogation revealed that he got married on March 13, 2019. His family members were against the marriage. Soon after marriage the relationship turned sour as he could not accept the outgoing nature of his wife.

He lost confidence in the relationship and started suspecting his wife at every turn. He checked her messages and did not approve of her partying.

The couple initially stayed with the wife’s family but the father-in-law asked them to leave as the woman’s family could not take the daily dose of quarrel. The couple shifted to Lajpat Nagar-IV area and moved into a rented accommodation. Their disputes were endless and converted into routine quarrels.

Soon the couple started staying separately. The husband shifted to Kotla Mubarakpur while the wife remained in the double storey building in Amar Colony.

On Saturday, he decided to kill her and end it once and for all. Shukla has been booked for attempt to murder.

Delhi Gymkhana Club turned from ‘vyayamshala’ to ‘madhushala’: Govt

Delhi Gymkhana Club

New Delhi, Jul 14 : The Central government has filed an appeal challenging the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) order, which allowed it to appoint two members (Central government nominees) to the Board (General Committee) of the Delhi Gymkhana Club (DGC), instead of appointing an administrator to manage its affairs.

In an appeal before the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), the Centre said that the NCLT has erred in not granting effective safeguards and an efficacious remedy.

“While allotting membership of the Club, the company has been treated like a ‘Riyaasat’ (kingdom) of the persons, especially the GC members, by misusing MoA and the AoA of the company. It is not out of place to submit here that over the years, the activities of the Club have been turned over from a ‘vyayamshala’ to a ‘madhushala’ and the functioning of the General Committee is like ‘siyasat’,” the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) said in the plea in the NCLAT.

The MCA argued that the violations are of extremely serious and grave nature, which indicates the GC members have been acting autocratically to the benefit of a few chosen members of the club, at the expense of the general public.

“It has to be borne in mind that the Board of companies function on majority decisions, here by permitting appointment of only two nominees, the Tribunal has provided inadequate relief and cosmetic representation on the Board will not cure mismanagement and the gravity of the rot that has set deep in the management of DGC,” it contended.

The plea said that the continuing management of affairs by successive GCs, “have pervasively twisted the objects of the company, to benefit a select few, who managed to remain in control of the DGC, through an unauthorised and complicated hereditary succession mechanism”.

“The admission process can only be described as ‘parivaar-vaad’. The general public applicants are being made to wait for decades (in some cases since 1972) for membership of the club, all the while (the club) having unauthorisedly collecting lakhs of rupees in the form of registration fees, process fees, enhanced registration fees etc, over and above the entrance fee,” it said.

The plea contended that the NCLT accepted most of MCA’s submission and also agreed with its allegations, yet it refused to grant interim relief sought.

“Till quite recently the unauthorisedly collected fee was not even refunded to the unsuccessful or waitlisted applicants. These nefarious activities by the GC of DGC are being carried out on prime land of 27.03 acres in New Delhi, all the while paying a miniscule amount of rent on the perpetual lease from the Ministry of Urban Affairs,” contended the plea.

In its June 27 order, the NCLT declined to suspend the club’s General Committee and also the appointment of an administrator as sought by the Centre, but instead directed it to appoint two of its nominees in the GC to monitor the affairs of the club, along with other GC members and give suggestions.

The ministry had moved the NCLT asking for replacement of the directors of the club with government nominees to run the affairs of the company, and in the interim relief, asked for suspension of the GC and for appointment of an administrator until the final order is granted.
