Mumbai:  Publicly shamed for allegedly kicking out his 72-year-old father from home eight years ago, a Mumbai resident has told authorities that he will arrange a suitable accommodation for his dad, a painter.

45-year-old Vikas Waghmare allegedly threw his father Shankar Waghmare out of their family home eight years ago, police said.

A local senior citizens’ group in suburban Versova, with the help of BJP MLA Bharti Lavekar, recently put up a poster naming and shaming the son.

The poster, with photographs of Vikas and his father, was put up at Lokhandwala Circle in Andheri, asking Vikas to seek forgiveness from his father and take him back home respectfully.

Shankar Waghmare, a painter who claimed to have a diploma from the famous J J School of Arts, told PTI that after his son `threw him out’, he lived at railway stations, public gardens, and of late on the premises of a temple in Versova.

Currently he was living in Ms Lavekar’s office, he said.

Vikas, who was summoned to the Versova police station a few days ago after police took notice of the matter, alleged that his father was a drug addict, said an official.

“Vikas told police that he will arrange a rented accommodation for me. But going by his nature, I am keeping my fingers crossed,” Shankar Waghmare said.

Michael Clarke Supports India’s Decision To Not Play A Day-Night Test In Australia

“I think India feel like they know the conditions that will suit them best to beat Australia. Remember India have never beaten Australia ever in Australia. This is their chance,” Clarke said at an interactive session at the Indian Chamber of Commerce & Young Leaders Forum (YLF).

The BCCI had officially informed Cricket Australia that Virat Kohli and Co would not engage in any pink ball Test during their tour Down Under. India are slated to play three Tests against Australia, starting from December 10. There would be three T20 internationals prior to that.

CA wanted to continue with their recent tradition of playing the opening Test at Adelaide from December 6-10 under lights.

The Indian team management headed by chief coach Ravi Shastri though had intimated the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that the team will take at least 18 months to prepare for the Day/Night Test.

Explaining the rationale behind India not wanting to play in white flannels under floodlights, Clarke said: “If India play during the day, the wicket is flatter and spin a little bit more. At night there is no spin, there is moisture and bit more movement.” 

“So India prefer to take their chances during the day like they have played every other Test match throughout their careers.”

“So I can understand why they are not wanting to play D/N test matches,” said the 37-year-old who skippered Australia to the 2015 World Cup.

Clarke though backed the Day-Night Tests, saying this is the future and would engage more fans watching the game.

“I do believe for the game, particularly in the summer of Australia, to get people watching on television we are going to see a lot more D/N Test matches moving forward and probably around the world.”

Clarke spilled the beans on how the Aussies got rid of the dangerous New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum in the 2015 World Cup final by plotting yorkers against the dashing wicketkeeper-batsman who had till then been in great form.

“We planned that wherever he bats, every single ball to him should be yorkers. We wanted to bowl at him like it’s the last five overs. Next day, Starc was with the new ball and asked ‘Skipper is the plan still the same? I said yes.’ Fortunately, it worked,” he revealed.

McCullum was removed for a three-ball duck by pacer Mitchell Starc with a yorker that swung in and landed in between the stumps making the batsman tentative and his off stump uprooted.

Australia had won the final in Melbourne by seven wickets with 101 balls to spare.

Singed By Gorakhpur Misstep, Rahul Gandhi’s Congress To Sit Out This UP Bypoll Contest

The Congress will not field a candidate in Kairana Lok Sabha and Noorpur assembly bypolls on 28 May

LUCKNOW:  The Congress isn’t going to field candidates for the Kairana Lok Sabha and Noorpur assembly bypolls in Uttar Pradesh later this month, a gesture that the party says it hopes would improve the chances of the opposition’s grand alliance to trump the BJP in these two seats.

A last-minute alliance between Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samajwadi Party had cost the BJP two places in Lok Sabha including the Gorakhpur seat that had been occupied by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for nearly two decades. The spectacular victory raised hopes in the opposition camp that they could defeat the BJP in the 2019 elections if they played their cards well.

This week, BSP chief Mayawati confirmed to NDTV that her alliance with Akhilesh Yadav would hold good for next year’s general elections but underlined that the details of the pact would be worked out closer to the date.

A Congress leader said the party had decided against contesting the bypolls slated for 28 May, though the party did have a considerable base in some pockets.

The bypolls were necessitated due to the death of the BJP’s sitting lawmakers; Hukum Singh from Kairana and Lokendra Chauhan from Noorpur. The BJP has fielded Hukum Singh’s daughter Mirganka Singh and Lokendra Chauhan’s wife Avani Singh from the two seats.

The opposition’s grand alliance has decided to field the Ajit Singh-led Rashtriya Lok Dal’s Tabassum Begam from Kairana Lok Sabha seat and the Samajwadi Party’s Naimul Hasan from Noorpur assembly segment.

The Congress isn’t formally part of this pact in Uttar Pradesh yet. Back in March, it had fielded candidates in Gorakhpur and Phulpur elections where local BSP and SP leaders came up with the idea of a tie-up.

The Congress’s central leadership was inclined to pull out of the by-elections but did not go that far because it didn’t want to antagonise its local leaders and it was too late to withdraw. The Congress candidates ended up with a humiliating 2 per cent vote share, a fraction of what it got at the peak of the Modi super wave of 2014.

Congress boss Rahul Gandhi, who was once seen as a critic of pre-poll alliances since they weaken the party organisation, has in recent years had a change of heart.

Of late, he has become such a strong advocate of opposition unity that went so far as to prophesise in Bengaluru recently that PM Narendra Modi could lose the 2019 elections because “opposition unity” has crossed the threshold needed to defeat the BJP-led national coalition.

The outcome in Kairana is seen as a good indicator of how potent this template of opposition unity is. In the 2014 elections, the BJP’s Hukum Singh had secured 50.5 per cent, much more than all candidates put together. But opposition leaders suggest a common candidate seen to a match for the BJP could help consolidate their supporters and ensure that they turn up for voting.

अमेरिका-ईरान परमाणु संधि: इजरायल ने ट्रंप का किया समर्थन, चीन ने जताया विरोध

वॉशिंगटन: ईरान के साथ परमाणु संधि से पीछे हटने के अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति डोनाल्ड ट्रंप के निर्णय से विश्व चकित रह गया. अमेरिका के पारंपरिक एवं करीबी मित्र रहे फ्रांस, ब्रिटेन और जर्मनी ने इस पर चिंता जाहिर की जबकि ईरान के विरोधियों इजराइल और सऊदी अरब ने इसका स्वागत किया. ट्रंप ने संधि को खराब बताते हुए मंगलवार(8 मई) को इसे रद्द करने की घोषणा की थी.

इस संधि पर अमेरिका और ईरान के अलावा संयुक्त राष्ट्र सुरक्षा परिषद के अन्य चार देशों ब्रिटेन, फ्रांस, चीन और रूस तथा जर्मनी ने हस्ताक्षर किये हैं. यूरोपीय नेताओं ने कहा कि ट्रंप ने भले ही सहयोगी देशों को प्रतिबद्धता तोड़ धोखा दिया हो, वे संधि के लिए प्रतिबद्ध रहेंगे. ब्रिटेन की प्रधानमंत्री थेरेसा मे, जर्मनी की चांसलर एंजेला मर्केल, फ्रांस के राष्ट्रपति एमैनुएल मैक्रों और संयुक्त राष्ट्र के महासचिव एंतोनियो गुतेरेस ने ट्रंप को संधि रद्द नहीं करने को चेताया था.

मे, मर्केल और मैक्रों ने ट्रंप की घोषणा के बाद एक संयुक्त बयान में कहा कि वे इस संधि से जुड़े रहेंगे क्योंकि इससे दुनिया में शांति स्थापित हुई . रूस और चीन ने भी ट्रंप के निर्णय पर निराशा जाहिर की. रूस ने कहा कि ट्रंप के संधि को रद्द करने का निर्णय बेहद निराशाजनक है. चीन ने भी ट्रंप के फैसले पर अफसोस जाहिर किया और इस संधि की सुरक्षा का निश्चय किया. वहीं ईरान ने चेतावनी दी कि यदि यूरोपीय देशों ने संधि की सुरक्षा का वादा नहीं दिया तो वह औद्योगिक स्तर पर यूरेनियम संवर्धन शुरू कर देगा.  

डोनाल्‍ड ट्रंप का ऐलान- अमेरिका ईरान परमाणु समझौते से हुआ अलग
अमेरिका के राष्‍ट्रपति डोनाल्‍ड ट्रंप ने ईरान परमाणु समझौते से हटने का ऐलान कर दिया है. आपको बता दें कि ईरान परमाणु समझौता तेहरान और छह वैश्विक शक्तियों के बीच 2015 में हुआ था. इससे पहले ट्रंप ने ट्वीट कर कहा था कि, “मैं कल व्हाइट हाउस से दोपहर दो बजे ईरान परमाणु समझौते पर अपने फैसले का ऐलान करूंगा.” जानकारी के मुताबिक ट्रंप विचार कर रहे हैं कि क्या ईरान के ऊर्जा और बैंकिंग क्षेत्र पर दोबारा प्रतिबंध लगाए जाए या नहीं.

राष्ट्रपति पद संभालने के बाद बीते 15 महीनों में देश की राष्ट्रीय सुरक्षा को लेकर मंगलवार का यह फैसला सबसे अधिक महत्वपूर्ण माना जा रहा था. फ्रांस के राष्ट्रपति इमैनुएल मैक्रों, जर्मनी की चांसलर एंजेला मर्केल और ब्रिटेन के विदेश मंत्री बोरिस जॉनसन हाल ही में ट्रंप पर दबाव बना चुके थे कि अमेरिका को इस समझौते से जुड़े रहना चाहिए. ट्रंप कई मौकों पर कह चुके थे कि यदि इस समझौते को संशोधित नहीं किया गया तो अमेरिका इस समझौते से अलग हो जाएगा.

गुटेरेस ने परमाणु समझौते से अलग होने के अमेरिका के फैसले पर चिंता जताई
संयुक्त राष्ट्र महासचिव एंटोनियो गुटेरेस ने अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति डोनाल्ड ट्रंप के 2015 के ईरान परमाणु समझौते से अलग होने के अमेरिका के फैसले पर ‘गहरी चिंता’ जताई है. ईरान और छह वैश्विक शक्तियों अमेरिका, ब्रिटेन, चीन, रूस, फ्रांस और जर्मनी के बीच जुलाई 2015 में हुए समझौते के आधिकारिक नाम (जेसीपीओए) का जिक्र करते हुए गुटेरेस ने एक बयान में कहा, “मैं आज (मंगलवार) की घोषणा को लेकर अत्यधिक चिंतित हूं कि अमेरिका संयुक्त समग्र कार्ययोजना (जेसीपीओए) से अलग हो जाएगा और (ईरान के खिलाफ) फिर से प्रतिबंध लगाएगा.” समाचार एजेंसी सिन्हुआ के अनुसार, गुटेरेस ने कहा, “मैं अन्य जेसीपीओए प्रतिभागियों से जेसीपीओए के तहत अपनी संबंधित प्रतिबद्धताओं का पूरी तरह पालन करने और अन्य सभी (संयुक्त राष्ट्र) सदस्य देशों से इस समझौते का समर्थन करने का आग्रह करता हूं.”
