New Delhi: 

The silver jubilee celebration of the Delhi Assembly on Saturday remained an all-Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators event, with both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress boycotting the event.

In his address at the function to mark the 25th anniversary of the Delhi Assembly’s first sitting on December 14, 1993, Speaker Ram Niwas Goel hit out at the opposition parties in Delhi.

Slamming the BJP and the Congress for staying away from the event, Mr Goel said it is an insult to the people of Delhi.

He said Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly and BJP MLA Vijender Gupta held press conferences to announce their boycott of the function.

“By boycotting the Delhi Assembly, you are not insulting any party but Delhi’s citizens. It’s a matter of shame,” Mr Goel said, adding that the opposition leaders did not think about the dignity of the House.

The Speaker also expressed his displeasure over BJP veteran LK Advani, who was invited to be the chief guest at the function, skipping the event citing personal reasons.

“We invited Advaniji as the chief guest. He accepted the invite…I have even the copy of the acceptance letter. I do not know the reason why he declined later. After four days, he sent the letter saying he is busy and won’t be able to come. The cards had been printed by then, so we had to get fresh cards printed,” Mr Goel said.

The celebration was attended by former members of the Assembly and Delhi Metropolitan Council, among others.

ISL 2018: Delhi Dynamos Beat Chennaiyin FC To Register Season’s First Win

Delhi Dynamos defeated Chennaiyin FC 3-1 to register their first win in the ongoing season of the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Marina Arena in Chennai on Saturday. Daniel Lahlimpuia, Bikramjit Singh and Nandhakumar Sekar scored in Delhi’s memorable win that left ISL defending champions Chennaiyin FC reeling at the bottom of the points table. Delhi, placed ninth in the points table, have seven points from 12 matches, while Chennai are last with five points from equal number of matches.

It was the hosts that started the game strongly as first Salom and then Mailson came close to scoring the opener but impressive saves from Dorronsoro kept Chennaiyin at bay.

It was against the run of play though that Dynamos grabbed the opener. Mihelic found Nandhakumar and the winger’s cross from the right was met by a glancing header from Daniel to score his first ever Indian Super League goal.

With five minutes to go for the first half, the hosts grabbed the equaliser. Sajid Dhot bought down Salom inside the box and the referee awarded the hosts a penalty, which was calmly slotted in by Raphael Augusto.

It was Dynamos though who started the second half on front foot as back to back corners handed them a chance at goal, but the hosts resolute defending kept the scoreline on level terms.

Former Chennaiyin midfielder though put Delhi in front again as he finished a wonderful counter attacking move started by substitute Andrija Kaluderovic.

Three minutes later Dynamos added their third as local boy Nandha added the cherry on the top to hand Dynamos their first win of the season.

Aam Aadmi Party Will Make Haryana Corruption-Free, Says Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused the BJP and the Congress of “not taking steps” to ensure remunerative crop prices to farmers, employment generation and improving health and education services since Independence.

Addressing a rally in Kaithal, Haryana, on Saturday, he asked people not to vote for the BJP or Congress in the next Assembly elections and sought the support of youth for building a “new Haryana”.

“I want to ask the BJP and Congress why did they not improve the conditions of hospitals and schools in the last 70 years. Why work for the welfare of farmers was not done? Why efforts were not made for generating employment for youth? The BJP and Congress did not undertake these works during last 70 years because their intentions were not right,” the chief minister alleged.

“We (AAP government) are now carrying out (development) works in Delhi which were to be undertaken immediately after Independence. After running government in Delhi for the last three years, I have understood that these works are possible and we have shown by doing it in Delhi,” he said.

Asking voters not to repeat the mistake of “five year (Bhupinder Singh) Hooda and five year (Manohar Lal) Khattar”, Mr Kejriwal said with the support of the youth his party will make Haryana “corruption-free”.

“Youth is our biggest strength and with their help we changed Delhi. Now it is the turn of the youth of Haryana… We will build a new Haryana where farmers will get adequate price for their crops, good educational institutions and free medical treatment at hospitals, employment to youth,” the AAP leader said.

Terming the crop insurance scheme a “big scam”, he claimed that farmers were deprived of their legitimate claims after their crops get damaged.

“The crop insurance scheme, being run by the BJP government, is actually a big scam. Money is deducted from the accounts of farmers in the name of insurance which is like robbing them. Farmers tell us when they seek insurance claim on account of crop damage, they are told that they could not get claims until crop of 70 per cent villagers get damaged,” Mr Kejriwal said.

He said his government in Delhi pays direct compensation to farmers and ensures that Rs 20,000 per acre is paid within two months.

Chill Envelops Delhi As Temperature Dips To 9 Degrees

On Saturday, the minimum temperature was hovering at 9 Degree Celsius in Delhi.

New Delhi: 

After much delay, the winters have already arrived over the plains of the northern part of India. In the Delhi, the temperature dropped by three degrees during the last two days. This sudden change in the temperature can be because of the heavy snowfall in the states of Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand and Jammu and Kashmir.

From the past two days, the chilly northerly winds flowing from the ice-capped Himalayas have engulfed Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Rajasthan.

In Delhi on Saturday, the minimum and maximum temperature was hovering at 9 Degree Celsius and 22 Degree Celsius. In Haryana’s Hisar too, the night temperature was 6.3 degree Celsius. In the majority of the northern states the temperature has reached in single digits.

According to the private weather forecasting agency, Skymet, “No fresh active Western Disturbance is expected to approach as of now. Therefore, icy cold northerly winds will continue for the next few days. In wake of his, we can expect a further drop in both day and night temperatures. We expect parts of Punjab, Haryana and North Rajasthan to even experience frost during the morning hours in the coming days. Moderate to dense fog is possible over parts of these states.”

With the year ending, the Southern states too are witnessing a fluctuation in the weather.

After the depression in Bay of Bengal has picked up the pace, severe cyclone is expected to hit Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu leading to heavy downpour in these regions.

“It is very likely to intensify further into a tropical storm by tonight. Chances are also there that it might become a Severe Cyclonic Storm in subsequent 48 hours but it would be for a very short duration. The cyclonic storm would be seventh in the row and would be named as Phethai. The system would continue to move in ­northwest direction and would be heading towards Andhra Pradesh Coast. The probable cyclone is likely to cross the coast somewhere between Ongole and Kakinada by the afternoon of December 17,” the forecast agency added.

At present, the Cyclone is still away from the coast to give any weather over the coastal areas. However, later in the day. light rain showers are expected to hit the region signalling its appearance all along the North Coastal Tamil Nadu and South Coastal Andhra Pradesh.

The people residing on the caostal lines are suggested to park vehicles under solid shelter. They must close shutters or board-up or heavily tape all windows.

Draw curtains and lock doors. People must also prepare an evacuation kit of having warm clothes, essential medications, baby formula, nappies, valuables, important papers, photos and mementos in waterproof bags to be taken with your emergency kit and Remain indoors (with your pets). Stay tuned to your local radio/TV for timely  information on the upcoming cyclone.

Mumbai-Lucknow IndiGo Flight Via Delhi Grounded After Bomb Threat: Report

IndiGo flight 6E 3612 was reportedly grounded at Mumbai Airport after a bomb threat (Representational)


An IndiGo flight from Mumbai to Lucknow via Delhi was grounded this morning after a bomb threat call, airport sources said.

The aircraft was taken to an isolated bay for a secondary ladder point check after a Bomb Threat Assessment Committee or BTAC found the threat as “specific”, the sources said, according to news agency Press Trust of India.

After a thorough check, security agencies declared the plane “safe”, they added.

Repeated attempts for IndiGo’s reaction on the development did not fructify, news agency PTI said.

The flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05 am. The number of passengers on board are not known yet, as an official response from IndiGo is still awaited.

“A woman passenger travelling to Delhi on Go Air flight G8 329 approached an IndiGo check-in counter at T1 and informed that there was a bomb in IndiGo’s flight 6E 3612 (operating on Mumbai – Delhi/Lucknow route),” an airport source told news agency PTI.

The woman passenger also showed photographs of a few people and claimed that they were a “threat” to the nation, the source informed PTI.

Thereafter, CISF security personnel took her to the airport police station for questioning.

“A Bomb Threat Assessment Committee (BTAC) was convened in CISF Assistant Commander’s office which declared the threat a specific one,” the source added.

NDTV cannot verify the authenticity of the report at the moment, and is trying to get in touch with IndiGo Airlines, which is yet to put out an official statement.

Delhi High Court Sets Aside Centre’s Decision Banning Sale Of Oxytocin

The court said there was no logic behind decision to restrict supply of oxytocin. (Representational)

New Delhi: 

The Delhi High Court Friday set aside the government decision to ban private firms from producing and selling oxytocin, a drug used for inducing labour contractions and controlling bleeding.

A bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and AK Chawla said the government’s decision was arbitrary and unreasonable.

The bench also said that there was no scientific basis behind the Centre’s decision restricting private companies from making or supplying the drug, which helps new mothers lactate, to prevent its alleged misuse in the dairy sector for increasing milk production.

As per the Centre’s April 27 notification, the state-run Karnataka Antibiotics and Pharmaceuticals Ltd (KAPL) was solely allowed by the Centre to make the drug to meet the country’s needs.

The high court on August 31 had suspended till September 30 the central government’s prohibition on sale and manufacture of oxytocin by private companies for domestic use. The stay was later extended till December 15

Manish Sisodia Says Tax Fraud Of 262 Crore Unearthed By Delhi Police

Manish Sisodia said the cyber tax fraud had been carrying on since 2013 (File Photo)

New Delhi: 

The Delhi government has unearthed a cyber-tax fraud totalling Rs 262 crore committed by over 8,700 traders who were found showing fraudulent tax deposits in 13 banks since 2013, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Wednesday.

Mr Sisodia, who also holds the finance portfolio, said that the Trade and Taxes Department has registered a complaint with the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) for registration of complaints in the matter.

“Delhi govt tax authorities have unearthed a big cyber-tax fraud. More than 8,000 registered dealers have been found showing fraudulent tax deposits into 13 banks. The matter has been handed over to EOW, Delhi Police. AAP govt believes in zero tolerance to any corrupt practice,” he tweeted.

Earlier in the day, the deputy chief minister said during the scrutiny of suspected fraud transactions, it was noticed that the fraud had been continuing since 2013.

“The government has detected cyber-tax fraud of Rs 262 crore. As per our initial investigation, around 8,700 traders were involved in the fraud. It is a very serious issue that should be investigated thoroughly by probe agencies,” he said.

Mr Sisodia also said the traders who were found involved in this fraud had tracked bank IDs and passwords, and also showed that they have deposited tax online, but in reality, they were not depositing tax.

The Delhi Police said Reena Toppo, VAT officer, Delhi, has lodged a complaint against some business firms which had claimed input tax credit under GST on the basis of fictitious documents and non-existent bank accounts.

Preliminary amount involved is Rs 9.97 crore and the complaint is being examined by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW), it said.
