Respect Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati, Says Rahul Gandhi On Uttar Pradesh Alliance


Rahul Gandhi said he won’t be disappointed about being ignored as long as BJP doesn’t come to power.

New Delhi: 

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today said he will not be disappointed about his party being overlooked in the Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) alliance in Uttar Pradesh as long as they succeed in overthrowing the BJP.

“They have taken a decision in Uttar Pradesh, and we will have to take our own decision too. The Congress has lots to offer to the people of Uttar Pradesh. I have tremendous respect for the leaders of the BSP and Samajwadi Party, and recognise that they have the right to do what they want. It’s on us to strengthen the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh, and we will fight to our full capacity,” he said at a media conference in Dubai. 

“The Congress is efficiently forming political alliances in other states. I won’t be disappointed about Mayawati-Akhilesh alliance as long as the BJP does not come to power,” Mr Gandhi said, before going on to criticise PM Modi on the Rafale aircraft deal.

Earlier today, BSP chief Mayawati and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav had confirmed that their alliance for the national election would not include the Congress because they didn’t expect significant dividends from the party. For the Congress, which has pitched for a grand opposition alliance to take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national election, this was an epic snub driven home by Mayawati’s sharp words and Akhilesh Yadav’s pointed silence.

Mayawati said it was “well known” that their alliance would not benefit from tying up with the Congress. “Past experience tells us that the Congress can’t transfer votes to us. Maybe it’s a conspiracy by the Congress to transfer votes to the BJP,” she added.

Akhilesh Yadav had joined hands with the Congress for the Uttar Pradesh election in 2017, but the alliance – glamourised by posters of Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi as “UP ke ladke (UP boys)” – failed to sway voters and he lost power. Mayawati also said “the Congress and the BJP, both are guilty of corruption in defence deals”, perhaps the unkindest cut at a time Rahul Gandhi has been relentlessly targeting PM Modi on the Rafale jet deal

"Respect Visitors," Urges Cricket Australia After Crowd Boos Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli’s grit is tough to break when he comes out to bat. The 30-year-old Virat Kohli has often carried the burden of his team and led them to victories. However, Kohli received an unexpected welcome from the spectators as he stepped out to bat during the Sydney Test. He was booed for the second time in the series by a section of fans. The first such incident came during the first Test at Adelaide. But this time around, Cricket Australia CEO Kevin Roberts made a strong remark on the matter and said he didn’t likes seeing this. He also urged fans to show respect to the visitors and give them the best possible experience.

“I don’t like seeing that,” Roberts was quoted as saying by foxsports.com.au.

“I would urge our fans to support the game with honour.

“The game is bigger than all of us, we need to respect our visitors, give them the best possible experience of visiting our country, and then hopefully beat them on the field,” he added.

When Kohli was booed during the third day of the first Test earlier, former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting had said that the Indian skipper must have faced worse than this in his career.

Kohli has scored a century and half-century in the ongoing Test series. He scored 23 runs during the first innings of the Sydney Test before getting dismissed by pacer Josh Hazlewood.

UN Urges Yemen Rivals To Respect Truce Deal After Clashes


The special envoy expects the two parties to respect their obligations, Martin Griffiths tweeted.

Dubai: 

UN special envoy Martin Griffiths on Sunday urged Yemen’s warring parties to respect a ceasefire accord struck at peace talks in Sweden after deadly clashes in the port city of Hodeida.

“The special envoy expects the two parties to respect their obligations as per the text and spirit of the Stockholm Agreement and to engage in the immediate implementation of its provisions,” Griffiths tweeted.

He said the UN was working with Yemen’s Saudi-backed government and Iran-aligned Huthi rebels to ensure the accord on Hodeida reached in Sweden on Thursday were “implemented timely and properly”.

Air strikes and fierce clashes shook the outskirts of Yemen’s rebel-held Hodeida on Saturday night, pro-government sources and residents said, despite the UN-brokered ceasefire.

At least 29 fighters, including 22 Huthi rebels, were killed in Hodeida province, a pro-government military source told AFP.

He said seven rebels were captured during an attack on Al-Durayhimi, about 20 kilometres south of Hodeida city.

The truce in Hodeida was due to be followed by the withdrawal within days of fighters on both sides.

The ceasefire accord has been seen as the most significant step towards ending the devastating conflict that has raged in Yemen since 2015.

Virat Kohli Has Learned To Play With Respect These Days, Says Ian Healy


Team India skipper Virat Kohli, who is eyeing to become the first Indian captain to win a Test series in Australia, has extended an olive branch by saying that he won’t seek to start any on-field spats. Kohli insisted that he has matured and has become a calmer captain now. Australian legend Ian Healy, who has been a critic of Indian skipper’s on-field behaviour, has said that Kohli has become more respectful now. “He’s learned to play with more respect these days. I love the way he plays,” former Australia keeper Healy was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

During the 2017 fiery Test series between India and Australia, the 30-year-old run machine declared he was no longer friends with any of the Australian players and never would be. Kohli later claimed those comments were blown out of proportion but there was no hiding the obvious bad blood.

Ian Healy criticised Kohli’s behaviour and the fired-up Indian hit back by referencing an incident from nearly two decades ago, when Healy was banned for showing dissent during a Test.

“Since then, I’ve felt he has played more respectfully to the ethics of the game and I think he’s been a lot calmer. Which he should be, for a great player.

“He did also forget that just before saying that, I did say he is the best batsman I have ever seen. So selective memory but that’s OK. I’ve been happy with his improvement.

“Now our Australian team is going to show similar improvements.”

Healy, speaking prior to Kohli’s arrival, doubted whether the upcoming four-Test series would be spiteful.

“It’ll be very competitive but you don’t have to get personal and you don’t have to mouth off,” Healy said.

Healy, having been suitably impressed with Kohli’s four tons during India’s previous Test series in Australia, is in no doubt the superstar will once again be the tourists’ talisman.

“He’s always the one to watch. He’s coming off an English tour where his side wasn’t successful, so he’ll be really keen to do well here,” he said.

“You don’t predict that even the best bowlers in the world will trouble a batsman like that.

“But we’ve got some firepower. They’ll be capable of giving him a really hard session or two. It’s up to him whether he can get through it.”

Emmanuel Macron Says We Owe Each Other Respect After Trump’s Tweet Attacks


Donald Trump had attacked his French counterpart on Tuesday in a series of tweets.

Paris: 

President Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday that “allies owe each other respect”, after he was assailed on Twitter by US President Donald Trump after his visit to France for World War I commemorations.

“I think he’s doing this for American politics,” Macron said in a televised interview on board France’s Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean Sea.

“At every crucial moment in our history, we have been allies,” he said citing France’s role in America’s independence fight as well as US participation in two world wars and the joint fight against jihadists after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

“And allies owe each other respect, and so I don’t want to hear all the rest,” he said.

“I think that’s what the French expect from me, not to respond to tweets but to remain committed to pursuing this important history,” he added.

Macron apparently drew Trump’s ire by starkly rejecting nationalism during the WWI ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe last Sunday, an implicit critique of the “America First” policies which have led Trump to pull out of several key international agreements.

On Tuesday, Trump fired off a caustic series of tweets against his weekend host and renewed his frequent charge that America’s European allies in NATO spend too little on defence.

“The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject,” Trump posted.

But Macron said the flap would not shake the strong cooperation between the two countries, in particular their joint military actions, in particular against jihadist terrorism.

“Every day our soldiers fight together, risk their lives together — that’s the most important decision you take when you are president,” Macron said.

Karnataka Declares 3-Day Mourning As Mark Of Respect To Union Minister Ananth Kumar


Union Minister Ananth Kumar, who was being treated for lung cancer, died this morning in Bengaluru (File)

Bengaluru: 

The Karnataka government has declared a three-day state mourning till November 14 as a mark of respect to Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar, who died early in the morning today.

The Karnataka government has also declared a holiday today as a mark of respect to Mr Kumar, who died at the age of 59. “His last rites would be performed with full government honour,” an official release from the state government said.

Mr Kumar died at a private hospital in Bengaluru at around 2 am this morning. He was being treated for lung cancer for several months.

The government notification said that there would be no official programs held during the state mourning. The national flag would fly at half mast on all government buildings, it said.

Condoling Ananth Kumar’s death, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said he has “lost a great friend.”

“Our families had a friendship beyond politics. He always valued and gave priority to friendship. I have lost a great friend in his death,” Mr Kumaraswamy said in a statement.

Describing him as a “value-based politician”, who made significant contribution to the country as an MP and Union Minister, the chief minister said, his pro-people attitude and activities had made him the “apple of the eye of Bengalurians”.

Mr Kumaraswamy will directly arrive to the National College Ground from Mysuru today, and will pay his last respects to the departed leader, the chief minister’s office said.

Congress Has No Respect For Self Or The Nation: Yogi Adityanath On Ayodhya


Yogi Adityanath asked Congress to clarify their stand on the Ram temple issue. (File)

Lormi, Chhattisgarh: 

Raking up the Ram temple issue, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today sought to know whether the Congress was concerned about Lord Ram or Mughal emperor Babur.

Addressing a poll rally in Chhattisgarh’s Lormi on the last day of campaigning for the first phase of the state polls, Mr Adityanath alleged that the Congress toyed with national security and supported Naxalism in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand for political gains.

Despite having extensive mineral deposits and forest wealth, Chhattisgarh remained “poor, backward and a BIMARU state” during the Congress rule, he said.

BIMARU – an acronym formed from the first letters of the names of the states of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh – was coined in the mid-1980s to refer to the poor economic conditions within those states.

“Today, the forest wealth is being used for the welfare of locals. The adivasis (tribals) and forest dwellers are being given benefits of development schemes,” Yogi Adityanath said.

“The Congress encouraged Naxalism for its gains, but when it (Naxalism) became dangerous for the security of people, it was the BJP which had to deal with the issue sternly. The Congress has been encouraging Naxalism actively and covertly,” he alleged.

“The Congress, for its own gains, played with the security of the country. Be it Chhattisgarh or Jharkhand, where the issue was giving asylum to Naxalites or using states like Jammu and Kashmir for political benefits. But for the BJP, national security is of prime importance, hence (it) never accepted toying with it,” Mr Adityanath said.

He said that not a day passes when at least two to three terrorists are not gunned down by security forces in Kashmir or surrender to the armed forces. Similarly, not a day goes by where people in Naxal-affected states are not being provided complete security by the state governments, the senior BJP leader said.

Speaking about Ayodhya, he said, “While it is a known fact that Lord Ram was born in Ayodhya, the matter is pending before the Supreme Court. Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal had petitioned before the court that a decision should not been taken over the issue before 2019, he said.

“The Congress should be asked if their relation is with (Lord) Ram or with foreign invader Babur. The Congress has no idea about the country’s respect and ‘swabhimaan’ (self-respect). The Congress always played with the national security and is now coming in front of you for votes,” the Uttar Pradesh chief minister said.

He said Chhattisgarh could only develop when the BJP governments at the Centre and state worked together.

The elections to the 90-member Chhattisgarh Assembly will be held in two phases on November 12 and 20.
