Have Lots Of Love For RJD Leader Tejashwi Yadav Despite Harsh Words

Nitish Kumar said he shares a cordial relationship with RJD chief Lalu Yadav too.


Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday night claimed that he has “lots of love” for Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav despite the “harsh words” the latter often uses. 

Mr Kumar said this while responding to queries at an event organised by a private news channel in Patna. Maintaining that he does not harbour hard feelings against anybody, he said: “Even with Tejashwi’s father, Lalu, I only had political differences. It never affected our personal relationship.” 

The Chief Minister had cited corruption charges to quit the grand alliance in Bihar two years ago and join hands with the BJP. Tejashwi Yadav termed it as a betrayal of allies as well as the people’s mandate, and declared that his party will never tie up with the Janata Dal(United) again.

Tejashwi Yadav regularly targets Mr Kumar in speeches and tweets by referring to him as chacha, or uncle, and then following it up with choice epithets. The RJD leader recently shared a news report on CBI infighting, footmarking it with the words: “Shri Shri Dhikkarvadi 420 Nitish Chachaji“, which translates to “condemnible, fraudulent Nitish uncle”. The BJP had come to the Chief Minister’s defence back then, taking exception to the “use of such foul language”.

He had picked on Mr Kumar even after the BJP’s recent defeats in Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. “Just after switching sides to the NDA, Nitish Kumar had said that nobody has the potential to challenge Modi. You are planning to take a u-turn again, aren’t you, Chachaji?” he tweeted.

Mr Kumar, however, chose to refrain from hitting back on Tuesday night. “All I want to say is this: Leaders like Tejashwi Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav ought to remember that whenever they emerge victorious in an election, they are blessed by the people for whatever promise they themselves hold and not by virtue of their family background,” he said. “Mahatma Gandhi considered politics without principles a social sin. Dynastic politics, which I have always been opposed to, is an example of politics without principles.”

He was apparently referring to the Congress, which is often accused by the BJP and its allies of practising dynastic politics. 

The Chief Minister also refused to give a direct answer to questions whether he plans to groom poll strategist Prashant Kishor as his successor in the party. “I have a lot of affection for him. But please, let us not talk in terms of successors. This is not a monarchy,” he said.

Ex-Nissan Chief Carlos Ghosn In Harsh Japan Detention, Says Wife Carole To Human Rights Watch

Carlos Ghosn’s ongoing detention has prompted some international criticism of Japan’s legal system (File)


The wife of ex-Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn has alleged her husband is being held in “harsh” conditions and subjected to round-the-clock interrogations intended to extract a confession.

In a letter to Human Rights Watch, Carole Ghosn urged the group to highlight the case of her husband, who has been in detention in Japan since his shock arrest on November 19 and faces three charges of financial misconduct.

The nine-page letter says the former high-flying executive is held in cell that is lit even at night, and is denied his daily medication.

“For hours each day, the prosecutors interrogate him, browbeat him, lecture him, and berate him, outside the presence of his layers, in an effort to extract a confession,” the letter says.

It claims prosecutors have pressed Ghosn to sign documents in Japanese, which he does not understand, providing only an oral translation, and without his lawyer present.

“I urge Human Rights Watch to highlight his case… to press the government to reform its draconian system of pretrial detention and interrogation,” the letter adds.

Ghosn’s ongoing detention has prompted some international criticism of Japan’s legal system, which permits prosecutors to hold suspects while they investigate an allegation, and also allows lengthy pre-trial detention once charges have been filed.

Ghosn’s lawyer has acknowledged his client is unlikely to be freed before a trial, and that the case could take six months to come to court.

The former Nissan chief has so far been denied visits from anyone except his lawyers and diplomats from the three countries where he holds citizenship — Brazil, France and Lebanon.

But a court ruling last week means Ghosn can now begin receiving family visits.

His lead lawyer Motonari Otsuru also denied last week that Ghosn was being pressured to sign documents or a confession in Japanese.

“Not once has Mr Ghosn said to us he has any concerns about being asked to sign something in a language he doesn’t understand,” he told reporters.

He also said Ghosn had now been moved to a larger cell with a Western-style bed, adding that his client had not complained to him about the conditions of his detention.

Ghosn faces charges of under-reporting his compensation, trying to shift personal losses onto Nissan books, and using company funds to repay a friend.

He denies wrongdoing and in a first court appearance this week said he had been “wrongly accused and unfairly detained.”

BCCI’s Life Ban Sentence “Too Harsh”, S Sreesanth Tells Supreme Court

A bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and Ajay Rastogi noted that appeal against the 2015 order of trial court is pending before the Delhi High Court and the hearing is scheduled in the second week of January.

“We will hear the matter in third week of January,” the bench said, while adjourning the matter.

Senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for Sreesanth said that the cricketer is now 35 years of age and if the ban is not revoked, he will not be able to play club cricket in the United Kingdom for which he has two-three offers.

He said that at 35 years of age, his international cricket career is virtually over but he should at least be allowed to play club cricket.

Khurshid further said that except for Sreesanth, none of the other players who were embroiled in the alleged spot-fixing scandal were given a life ban.

Senior advocate Parag Tripathi, appearing for BCCI, said that there was incriminating evidence against Sreesanth due to which the apex cricket body imposed the ban on him.

He said that the BCCI has adopted zero tolerance against corruption in the game and the life ban cannot be revoked.

On May 15, the apex court had denied Sreesanth the opportunity to play in the English County but asked the Delhi High Court to decide expeditiously an appeal challenging a trial court order discharging several cricketers, including him, in the case.

The court had then said that though it understood Sreesanth’s “anxiety” to play, it would like to wait for the high court’s decision on the appeal of the Delhi Police challenging the trial court order discharging the cricketers and others in the spot-fixing case.

The Delhi Police had arrested Sreesanth, along with cricketers Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, and others on charges of spot-fixing during the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2013.

As many as 36 accused in the spot-fixing case, including Sreesanth, Chavan and Chandila, were let-off by a Patiala House court in July, 2015. The Delhi Police had later challenged the decision in the Delhi High Court.

The BCCI had however refused to alter its disciplinary decision of life ban even after the verdict.

Sreesanth has challenged in the apex court, the decision of a division bench of the Kerala High Court restoring the ban imposed on him by the BCCI.

The apex court had on February 5 sought response from the BCCI and two members of the committee, which had recommended the life ban on Sreesanth.

A single-judge bench of the Kerala High Court had on August 7 last year lifted the life ban imposed on 34-year-old Sreesanth by the BCCI and set aside all proceedings against him initiated by the board.

A division bench of the high court had later restored the ban on a petition filed by the BCCI against the single-judge bench’s order.

Cricket Australia’s Harsh Penalty For Steve Smith, David Warner Was A “Positive Thing”, Says Steve Waugh

Cricket Australia was dealt with a huge blow when Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were caught in the infamous Cape Town ball-tampering saga. Following the incident, Smith and Warner were handed one-year bans from international and state cricket while Bancroft received a nine-month suspension. A day after an independent review by the Sydney-based Ethics Centre released a 145-page report on the ball-tampering incident, former Australia captain Steve Waugh said that he thought Cricket Australia did a positive thing by handing harsh punishments to the players.

Reiterating his point, Waugh said that they didn’t realise the gravity of what they had done as they had moved away from the reality.

“I don’t think they realised the gravity of what they had done, and I think that showed that they gradually got away from reality and people’s perceptions of what was right and wrong,” Waugh was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

“Maybe this is a good time to (hit) the reset button.”

“So I think Cricket Australia did a positive thing – even though it was a harsh penalty, it sent out a strong message,” Waugh further added.

“I know that all kids watching that around Australia, in any sport, would say ‘now I know that if I step out of line there’s going to be a heavy penalty’,” remarked 1999 World Cup winning captain Waugh.

Waugh, who has a record of 41 wins from 57 matches as a Test captain, said that the players might have succumbed to the pressure of winning a match.

“You’re close together, which you’ve got to be on away tours, and you don’t like letting too many outside influences come in because you’ve got to concentrate on what you’re doing,” Waugh said.

“There’s a lot of pressure, and if there’s a negative vibe that starts in the side, or if people start to split up and go different ways then, quite easily, you’ve got an environment which is not cohesive, and one where people are thinking the wrong things,” he added.

“They’re starting to think negatively, and thinking the world’s against them. All of a sudden you get this feeling ‘well, let’s do something about it’, and that’s maybe what happened in South Africa,” Waugh pointed out.

New System Will Help Warn Of Falling Air Quality, Says Harsh Vardhan

New Delhi: 

Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan today said Indian scientists along with their counterparts from the US and Finland have developed a mechanism that will soon be able to forewarn depletion in air quality.

The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology in Pune, the India Meteorological Department and the meteorology centre in Noida will work together on the air quality issue, Harsh Vardhan said. These three institutions will help to calculate, take measures and give a three-day warning about depleting air quality.

The air quality in Delhi has been deteriorating for the last few days. According to data released by the National Air Quality Index, the AQI was between moderate and poor on Monday with a drop in airspeed.

“We follow a ‘graded response action plan’ under which various steps are taken keeping in mind the degree to which the air quality depletes. There are 40-45 action plans in it,” Harsh Vardhan said.

In past years with the help of the environment ministry, Air Quality index or AQI was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015. The AQI uses eight to 10 parameters to judge the overall air quality which is then further graded as moderate, poor, good and so on.

“Last year, the government allotted Rs 1,100 crore following depletion in the air quality. Out of this, Rs 500 crore has already been disbursed for the Delhi-Haryana region. PM10 (presence of particles with diameter less than 10 mm) and PM2.5 (presence of particles with diameter less than 2.5 mm) levels have diminished as compared to previous years, and we have also kept a thorough check on stubble-burning,” Harsh Vardhan said.

Vladimir Putin Says Khabib Nurmagomedov Doesn’t Deserve Harsh Punishment

Russian President Vladimir Putin met mixed martial arts champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on Wednesday, saying that he did not deserve harsh punishment for a recent post-fight brawl. The Russian strongman appeared on state television meeting the fighter, who defended his Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight title against Conor McGregor on Saturday, along with his father. Nurmagomedov faces a possible suspension over the post-fight fracas and has not received his prize money, though he will keep his title.

Despite the controversy, he has received a hero’s welcome in Russia and blasted his opponent as a “dimwit”.

Putin gave the fighter a mild lecture over his behaviour, but stressed that any Russian will respond forcefully to an attack from the outside.

“I will ask your dad not to punish you harshly,” the president told the 30-year-old fighter from the mainly Muslim Dagestan region, adding that “you won worthily and convincingly”.

Putin said that like other Russians he had “closely followed” the fight in Las Vegas and “got emotionally involved”.

After the fight, Nurmagomedov jumped over the fence and apparently tried to attack his opponent’s training partner. The crowd was so hostile that the UFC president Dana White did not present the Russian with his belt.

Nurmagomedov expressed no remorse, telling Putin he responded to “disrespect” and “provocations” from his opponent and that he hoped to be vindicated. 

Putin told him that a Russian must restrain himself while at home in his own country, which he called “a big family, but when attacked from the outside, may respond appropriately”.

“In a family anything can happen, (but) we never allow ourselves to go beyond certain limits,” Putin said.

“But if they attack us from the outside, of course, not just you — all of us can jump in such a way, they won’t know what hit them,” said Putin, nevertheless cautioning Nurmagomedov that “it’s better not to take things so far”.

Tino Best Gives Harsh Rebuttal To Harbhajan Singh For Tweet On Windies Team

Tino Best was not too impressed with the Harbhajan’s tweet and hit back at the Indian off-spinner. The West Indian took a pot shot at India’s performance during the Test series in England, where they lost the five-match series 1-4.

Not just the West Indian cricketer, some Indian fans too were left outraged by Harbhajan’s comments.

However, the Windies team did little to prove Harbhajan wrong, putting in a meek performance at Rajkot.

Spinner Kuldeep Yadav starred in India’s biggest-ever Test triumph as they thrashed the Windies by an innings and 272 runs.

The tourists were dismissed for 196 — in their second innings — early in the final session while following on, to trail the two-match series 0-1. They were bowled out for 181 in their first innings in response to India’s 649 for nine declared.

The win at Rajkot helped the world’s top Test side surpass their previous biggest win against Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs during the minnows’ debut five-day game in June.

The Windies will have a chance to reclaim some of their lost pride when they face India in the second Test at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad, starting October 12.
