New Delhi, Feb 2 : Indian government is closely monitoring the situation in which hundreds of Indian students, mainly from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, face deportation for illegally staying in America by enrolling themselves as students with the fake university by the name of University of Farmington in United States.

The US Department of Homeland Security created a fake university by the name of University of Farmington in Michigan – with the aim of trapping immigration agents and illegal immigrants, who were extending their stay in America on the pretext of being students.

“Government of India continues to closely monitor and take proactive measures to address the situation arising out of the detention of several Indian students in connection with their enrollment in a fraudulent university in the United States,”Ministry of external Affairs issued the statement.

Arrest warrants for 600 Farmington ‘students’ have been issued, many of whom are Indian citizens.

A federal grand jury in Detroit has charged eight people working as immigration agents, mostly from India, in connection to the investigation.
The Indian Consulate General in Chicago is also mointoring the situation.

Delhi High Court

New Delhi, Feb 28 : The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to the Centre on a petition seeking a direction to frame guidelines for the identification of the term “minority” at the state level.

Chief Justice D.N. Patel and C. Harishankar sought response on the plea filed by Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay seeking a direction to define the word ‘minority’ and insisting on framing guidelines to accord the minority status based on population of every state of a particular community.

The matter will be heard next on May 4.

The plea cited Census of 2011 which states that Hindus are merely one per cent in Laddakh, 2.75 per cent in Mizoram, 2.77 per cent in Lakshdweep, 4 per cent in Kashmir, 8.74 per cent in Nagaland, 11.52 per cent in Meghalaya, 29 per cent in Arunachal Pradesh, 38.49 per cent in Punjab and 41.29 per cent in Manipur.

“But, their minority rights are being siphoned illegally and arbitrarily to the majority population because neither the Centre nor the respective state has notified them as a ‘minority’ under Section 2 (c) of the National Commission of Minorities Act.”

Thus, Hindus are being deprived of their basic rights, guaranteed under Article 30,” the plea said.

Delimitation Act 2002 in North East

New Delhi, Feb 29 : The decks have been cleared for the resumption of the delimitation exercise in four Northeastern states. The central government on Friday cancelled its earlier notifications which deferred delimitation in Assam, Nagaland, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh due to security issues.

The delimitation exercise will redraw the boundaries of Assembly and Lok Sabha constituencies in the four states which have been hit by insurgency.

The rationale given by the government was that the exercise could be carried out “now” as the previous circumstances cease to exist.

The ”order” issued by the Legislative Department of the Law Ministry said “it appears that the circumstances that led to the deferring of the delimitation exercise” in Assam, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland “have ceased to exist and that the delimitation of the constituencies as envisaged under the Delimitation Act, 2002 could be carried out now”.

It said now the President, satisfied that the circumstances that led to the deferring of the delimitation exercise have ceased to exist, “is pleased to rescind the notification … dated the February 8, 2008…”

The order pointed out that a Delimitation Commission was set up under the Delimitation Act, 2002 to readjust the division of each state and union territory into territorial constituencies for the purpose of Lok Sabha and state assembly elections on the basis of census figures of 2001.

The Commission completed the delimitation exercise and the Delimitation Order, 2008 in respect of all the states, except in these four northeastern states, it said.

Addressing all the four states individually, the order said the President on being satisfied that a situation had arisen where the unity and integrity of India was likely to be threatened and there was serious threat to the peace and public order, deferred the delimitation exercise.

“In India, such Delimitation Commissions have been constituted four times – in 1952 under the Delimitation Commission Act, 1952, in 1963 under Delimitation Commission Act, 1962, in 1973 under Delimitation Act, 1972 and in 2002 under Delimitation Act, 2002,” it said.
