Shimla Faces Worst-Ever-Water Crisis As World Observes Environment Day


The crisis was unprecedented and experts attribute it to the degradation of environment. (File)

Shimla:  As the world observed the Environment Day today, residents of Shimla continued to grapple with the worst-ever water crisis in the hill city’s history, a stark warning of what the consequences of degradation of natural resources can be.

Despite the best efforts of the Shimla Municipal Corporation (SMC) and other authorities, people are getting water only after a gap of three to four days. The severe water shortage raised its head during peak tourist season and has already hit the hospitality sector here.

Reckless felling of trees, unplanned and illegal constructions have reduced the ‘queen of hills’ to a concrete jungle and drying up of water sources has plunged Shimla into this deep crisis.

The town has faced water woes during the summer for past many years. But the crisis this year was unprecedented and experts attribute it to the degradation of environment.

Shimla has been declared a ‘smokeless’ city where smoking in public is banned while the use of polythene and plastic is prohibited, but drying up of water sources and the receding snow line and forest cover have taken their toll.

Snowfall during the winters has reduced drastically. This year there was a 72 per cent rain deficit and the town received scanty snowfall. As a result the perennial sources like springs have either dried up or in other cases usurped by land sharks.

According to officials, the sources of Shimla Water Supply Scheme have plumbed to the lowest level with daily pumping coming down from 40 million litres per day (MLD) to 18 MLD out of which more than 15 percent goes waste due to leaking pipelines.

The population of the town has reached about 1.80 lakh while a floating population of 80,000 to 1 lakh is added during the tourist season. And the water supply scheme virtually collapsed this summer.

Multi-storied structures have come up in and around Shimla creating water shortage and parking problems but with political considerations leading to a push for regularising the illegal structures, an additional 20,000 water connections could be added, further worsening the situation.

The government had amended the Town and Country planning Act but the High Court has struck down the amendment providing for regularising the illegal structure on “as is, where is” basis and the National Green tribunal has also banned all constructions in core areas in the town and restricted the height of the buildings.

However, the government instead of implementing the orders of High Court and NGT has approached the NGT to give some relaxation to the affected people.

“The court and NGT have come to the rescue of Shimla but the government appears to be siding with the violators which is not a good sign,” said a retired architect who wished not to be named.

Donald Trump Appeals Court Ruling He Can’t Block Twitter Critics


New York:  The US Department of Justice on Wednesday said it will appeal a federal judge’s ruling last month that President Donald Trump cannot legally block Twitter users who disagree with him.

The appeal notice, filed Monday before the US appellate court in New York, refers to the May 23 ruling by Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald.

She ruled that the blocking of Trump critics violated the free speech rights of those users guaranteed in the Constitution’s First Amendment.

The president’s @realDonaldTrump account has more than 52 million followers and is his favorite public communication tool, in the face of what he calls “fake news” media which publish investigative articles about him and his administration.

Buchwald’s ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by the Knight First Amendment Institute, which is based at Columbia University in New York and works to defend free speech.

The case was filed in the name of seven individual plaintiffs who said they were blocked from the @realDonaldTrump account after posting tweets critical of his policies.

Although they were still able to see the tweets without logging in to Twitter, and to quote Trump’s tweets in their own messages, their comments were excluded from the threads that make up a public “conversation” involving the president and his Twitter followers.

After Buchwald’s ruling the White House unblocked the plaintiffs’ Twitter accounts, their lawyer Jameel Jaffer said.

One of them, Maryland sociology professor Philip Cohen, was blocked in June 2017, 15 minutes after he reacted to a Trump tweet by accusing him of being “Corrupt Incompetent Authoritarian.”

“We whined. We complained. We sued. We won our First Amendment lawsuit in federal court. And now @realDonaldTrump has unblocked me. Wow!,” Cohen tweeted on Monday.

The Knight Institute said “many others are still blocked.”

Donald Trump May Seek Separate Trade Deals With Canada, Mexico: US Adviser


US, Canada, Mexico have been in months of negotiations to rework the North American Free Trade Agreement

Washington:  U.S. President Donald Trump may seek separate talks with Canada and Mexico in a bid to get individual trade deals with the two countries, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday.

“He is very seriously contemplating kind of a shift in the NAFTA negotiations. His preference now, and he asked me to convey this, is to actually negotiate with Mexico and Canada separately,” Kudlow said in an interview with Fox News.

“He may be moving quickly towards these bilateral discussions instead of as a whole.”

The United States, Canada and Mexico have been in months of negotiations to rework the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has long criticized as having harmed the United States economically.

On Friday, Trump said he might prefer to end NAFTA in favor of separate bilateral agreements with the two U.S. neighbors.

Kudlow said the U.S. president was moving toward that scenario.

“He prefers bilateral negotiations and he’s looking at two much different countries,” he said. “Canada’s a different country than Mexico. They have different problems.

“He believes that bilaterals have always been better. He hates these multilaterals … he hates large treaties.”

Such a move toward separate talks would come at a tense time in U.S. trade relations with the two countries. The Trump administration said on Thursday it was moving ahead with tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, ending a two-month exemption and setting the stage for a possible trade war.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the tariffs an affront to the longstanding security partnership between Canada and the United States, and Canada announced retaliatory steps.

In a television appearance on Sunday, Kudlow called the trade frictions a “family quarrel.”

Agra Faces Water Crisis For Eight Day Amid Technical Snag In Waterworks


Agra:  Most parts of Agra went without water for the eighth day on Tuesday even as a series of programmes to highlight air and water pollution were being held on World Environment Day. Residents of Peer Kalyani, Nagla Mahadev, Free Ganj, Belanganj, and dozens of colonies on the outskirts complained of no water supply, while in other areas, supply was erratic. Officials said the cause was the dry Yamuna river and a series of technical snags. The main pipeline from the two water works burst at several points leading to wastage of water.Half the city has gone dry as the pipeline from the Sikandra Water Works burst under pressure. The engineers have been on the repair job for the past few days.

“This is peak summer when the demand for water is the maximum, but the municipal authorities have proved quite unequal to the challenge. The Mayor of Agra heads the water works, but he is not available to explain how long it would take for supply to be normal,” complained River Connect Campaign activist Shravan Kumar Singh.

Against a demand for 400 mld, the two water works can only supply around 200 mld. Thanks to the ubiquitous hand pumps, and numerous voluntary organisations that have put up water kiosks for pedestrians, the water scarcity has not evoked angry reactions, says Bankey Lal Maheshwari, who runs a network of water kiosks under the Srinathji Nishulk Jal Sewa.

Officials of the Jal Sansthan said the biggest problem was shortage of raw water in river Yamuna, as upstream barrages at Gokul and Okhla, were not releasing water.

Agra District Magistrate, Gaurav Dayal has now written to the Gokul barrage management to release water for the city.

Local MLAs of the BJP say the water supply situation in Agra will improve drastically once the Rs 3000 crore Gangajal pipeline project becomes operational in August. The work on laying the last few kilometres of the pipeline has been held up for want of permission from the Supreme Court to chop 234 trees that come in the way.

Officials said the permission has now been received and work would resume shortly.

Rashid Khan’s Four-For Helps Afghanistan Clinch T20I Series vs Bangladesh


Spin sensation Rashid Khan claimed four wickets to set up Afghanistan’s series-clinching win over Bangladesh in the second Twenty20 international on Tuesday in the north Indian city of Dehradun. Rashid Khan’s 4-12 helped restrict Bangladesh to 134-8 as the hosts surpassed the modest total to win by six wickets and take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Samiullah Shenwari, who hit 49 off 41 balls, and Mohammad Nabi, with an unbeaten 31, took Afghanistan home with seven balls to spare. The Afghans seemed to be in trouble at 79-3 in the 14th over but Nabi smashed three fours and two sixes to ensure smooth sailing for his team during his 15-ball blitz.

But it was the 19-year-old Rashid Khan who set up the victory with his triple strike in an over and was poised to claim a hat-trick after sending back Tamim Iqbal, who top-scored with 43, and Mosaddek Hossain on consecutive deliveries.

Abu Hider denied Rashid Khan the hat-trick and went on to hit an unbeaten 21 off 14 balls to give the Bangladesh total respect after the visitors elected to bat first.

Rashid Khan, who had also starred in Afghanistan’s opening win of the series with his three wickets, got his second man of the match award.

Nabi also got two crucial scalps and even though fellow spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman went wicketless the teenager gave away just 15 runs in his four overs.

Bangladesh off-spinner Mosaddek took two wickets to try and choke Afghanistan in their chase but Bangladesh did not have enough runs on the board for their bowlers to defend.

The Asghar Stanikzai-led Afghanistan, who are tuning up for their debut Test against India starting June 14, are scheduled to play the final match of the series on Thursday at the same venue.
