In the wake of protests by the medical fraternity in support of agitating doctors in Kolkata, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan Friday urged West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to ensure an “amicable end” to the stir. He also appealed to the agitating doctors, particularly in West Bengal, to hold symbolic protests and resume work so that patients do not suffer. See P4last_img read more

Liberal turmoil a gift to NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in BC byelection

first_imgBURNABY, B.C. — The stakes are high for NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in a Metro Vancouver byelection race, but an expert says recent Liberal turmoil has been a “gift” to his campaign.The 40-year-old former Ontario legislator has lacked a voice in Parliament since becoming party leader in the fall of 2017. Now he finally has his chance in Burnaby South as voters in the riding cast their ballots on Monday after a six-week race.The Liberals got off to a rocky start when their first candidate, Karen Wang, resigned after pointing out Singh’s ethnicity online. In recent weeks, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been besieged by allegations his office pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to stop a criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.Singh said he’s not taking anything for granted but he’s confident his hard work to connect with voters will pay off.“I think people are very disappointed with what’s going on with the Liberal government,” he said.“Canadians expect our government works in our interest. It looks more and more like this government and Mr. Trudeau and the Liberal party are working in the interest of a massive multinational corporation.”Trudeau has denied he or his office directed Wilson-Raybould on the matter. Michael Wernick, clerk of the Privy Council, recently said Trudeau repeatedly assured Wilson-Raybould a decision on the prosecution was hers alone to make.Richard T. Lee, the Liberal candidate who replaced Wang in Burnaby South, said few people are raising the issue on the doorstep.“I understand some people are concerned about that, but the office of the prime minister and the prime minister himself have made a statement already,” he said.Byelections typically have low turnouts, but there is evidence the results of them are driven by the popularity of the government and its leader, said Richard Johnston, a University of British Columbia political science professor.“(Singh) may have been handed the gift of some voters as a result of all this,” he said. “Although it’s just one thing amongst many, boy, he could use a win right now.”Singh has faced criticism for poor fundraising and low poll numbers. Burnaby South occupies historically strong NDP territory, so if Singh can’t win in the riding, it adds to the interpretation that he hasn’t secured the support of party loyalists, said Johnston.The NDP beat the Liberals by just over 500 votes in the riding in 2015, but Johnston said he never expected the Liberals to do as well this time in Burnaby South.“That was kind of a high point and their support might drop even further,” he said.Lee said local issues, especially affordable housing, are more important to Burnaby South voters than the situation in Ottawa.He has touted the Liberal government’s national housing strategy, which promises $40 billion over 10 years, while Conservative candidate Jay Shin has called for lower taxes and job-creation measures to help residents earn and save more money.Singh has unveiled a plan to build 500,000 affordable homes across Canada. He challenged Trudeau to eliminate the GST for developers building affordable homes, subsidize low-income renters and double the first-time homebuyers’ tax credit.Byelections will also take place in York-Simcoe in Ontario and Outremont in Montreal on Monday. The results might provide insight into whether Quebec MP Maxime Bernier’s new right-wing People’s Party of Canada can snatch votes from the Conservatives.A recent debate in Burnaby South became heated when People’s Party candidate Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson discussed immigration.An online video of the debate shows Singh urging audience members to recognize they are all immigrants, unless they are Indigenous.When Tyler Thompson raises the murder of Burnaby teen Marrisa Shen — in which a Syrian national has been charged —  to argue for more careful vetting of refugees, an audience member yells: “That is racist! Shame on you!”“It’s not racist to have safety,” replies Tyler Thompson.Shin, the Conservative candidate, recently distributed flyers taking aim at Tyler Thompson, accusing her of supporting supervised injection sites and the legalization of marijuana, which she described as a “smear campaign” based on “lies.”However, Shin said he isn’t worried about Tyler Thompson and doesn’t think her message is resonating.“When I speak with voters at the doors, I don’t get a sense of that at all,” he said.Tyler Thompson, a former Christian TV show host who opposes abortion and has protested teaching resources that educate kids about gay and transgender identities, said she believes the Conservatives are threatened by the People’s Party.“My message is resonating with Canadians because they like my strong stance for family.”Laura Kane, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Rules for new corporate ombud criticized for deferring to companies

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government is giving its new watchdog on international corporate responsibility unprecedented power to hear complaints from Canadian companies that think they’ve been unfairly targeted by abuse allegations.Advocates for stronger oversight say they’re stunned by a proposed federal regulation that gives companies the right to file complaints against groups they believe have subjected them to unfounded allegations of abusing human rights.Emily Dwyer, who heads the Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability, says it is unprecedented that the government is proposing to give its “Canadian ombudsperson for responsible enterprise” the ability to turn the tables on vulnerable complainants in poor countries.Karyn Keenan, of the advocacy group Above Ground, says the inclusion of that unexpected provision goes against the spirit of an ombudsperson’s office.The new ombudsperson was intended to improve on the current “corporate responsibility counsellor,” which is widely criticized for lacking teeth.The Liberals promised reform as part of their 2015 campaign platform to address complaints against companies, often operating in the mining industry, but they have left final approval of the new office to the very end of their mandate.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Former Rwandan official transferred back to UN war crimes tribunal

Michel Bagaragaza was the Director General of the office controlling the Rwandan tea industry during the genocide.According to the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), he “is charged with ordering his subordinates and with instigating, aiding and abetting others over whom he did not have authority to kill hundreds of Tutsi civilians who sought refuge on Kesho Hill near a tea factory in Rubaya and in Nyundo Cathedral, both in Gisenyi Prefecture.”He was alleged to have helped establish, fund, train and arm the Hutu-dominated rebel Interahamwe militia to carry out attacks on Tutsi civilians and to have been the honorary president of a local Interahamwe unit. He also allegedly ordered tea factory employees to provide the Interahamwe with vehicle fuel, arms and ammunition from a stockpile at the factory and ordered them to help kill hundreds of Tutsis, the Tribunal said.Shortly after surrendering to the ICTR in Arusha in August 2005, Mr. Bagaragaza was transferred to the detention unit in The Hague of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for security reasons.Both the Governments of Norway and the Netherlands have attempted to have the case transferred to their countries. In the case of Norway, the Scandinavian nation’s Prosecutor found that its criminal law did not provide for the crime of genocide.Last August, the order to refer Mr. Bagaragaza’s case was revoked by the Netherlands on the grounds that the country does not have any jurisdiction in this instance. 21 May 2008A former senior Rwandan official who stands accused of involvement in the 1994 genocide has been transferred from The Hague back to Arusha, Tanzania – where the United Nations war crimes tribunal to deal with the mass killings is based – after the Netherlands ruled that it did not have jurisdiction in trying his case. read more

Mick Jagger suffering from a physical injury sustained during tour preparations sources

Mick Jagger has delayed concerts after suffering from a “physical injury” sustained during tour preparations, sources have confirmed.The Rolling Stones frontman sent shockwaves around the world and fans into a frenzy when it was announced that the band had postponed their tour of the US and Canada because Jagger had fallen ill.In a statement, the band said that doctors had advised Jagger, 75, not to tour because he needs to receive medical treatment.”I really hate letting you down like this,” the singer wrote in a statement to fans which was published on his social media channels on Saturday night. “I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on stage as soon as I can.”Despite panic from fans about the long-term health of the rock star, sources have confirmed to The Telegraph that Jagger is in perfectly good health, but has in fact only injured himself after training for shows.A source close to Jagger, who follows a strict diet and exercise regime, said: “It’s not a mystery illness, it’s a physical injury as a result of his strenuous pre-tour preparations. Doctors have told him to take it easy and to concentrate on his recovery. “ In a statement to Rolling Stone magazine, the band’s publicist had said that Jagger was “expected to make a complete recovery, so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible”. However no details were given about his health.The band’s No Filter world tour officially started in September 2017 with a concert in Hamburg, Germany. The Rolling Stones have since toured across Europe and the UK and they announced shows in the US and Canada in November 2018.The tour will be postponed for around a month and the promoters AEG Presents/Concerts West told fans that their tickets will still be valid at the rescheduled concerts.Jagger’s bandmates were quick to show their support for Jagger. Keith Richards, 75, tweeted: “A big disappointment for everyone but things need to be taken care of and we will see you soon. Mick, we are always there for you!”The guitarist Ronnie Wood, 71, added: “We’ll miss you over the next few weeks, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all again very soon. Here’s to Mick – thanks for your supportive messages it means to much to us.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Sarri Man City are the best team in Europe

first_imgChelsea boss Maurizio Sarri believes Manchester City are an example for every club to follow and admits they’ve still got a lot of work ahead of them to be title challengers.The Blues will head to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday to take on City knowing that victory will likely be a must if they are to maintain their top-four spot in the Premier League.But Pep Guardiola’s side will also be determined to take all three points after retaking the lead in the standings from Liverpool on goal difference following Wednesday’s 2-0 win at Everton.Speaking ahead to this weekend, however, Guardiola made a surprise announcement by suggesting that Chelsea could still be title contenders despite them trailing City by 12 points.Although Sarri doubts Chelsea will challenge for the league crown anytime soon and added it will take time for them to match the likes of City and Liverpool.“I don’t think so, not at the moment. We will be able to fight for the top four this season, no more,” said Sarri on the club website.“We can win something of course, but in the Premier League, there is a fight between Liverpool and Man City. In my opinion, Man City are the best team in Europe. They are an example for every club.“We need to work. Guardiola is in the third season in the Premier League, Klopp in the fourth or fifth, but we need to work. I don’t know another way.“We need only to work and try to reduce the gap.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The former Napoli coach was happy with the way Chelsea responded to their 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth by thrashing Huddersfield Town 5-0 last weekend.“In the last match, we reacted very well. After the match against Huddersfield I was happy with the result, but especially the performance,” added Sarri.“We know very well we need consistency. I hope our version on Sunday will be the best.”The City and Chelsea match will begin at 5:00 PM (CET) on Sunday.A Sunday double-header in Manchester, let’s make it 2/2! 💪👊 @ChelseaFCW pic.twitter.com/w7Y0Orzlye— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 7, 2019last_img read more

Oh no Aamir Khan says this is when he will quit acting

first_imgAamir Khan at Rubaru Roshni screeningPR handoutAamir Khan, who turned 54 on March 14, is one of the few actors in Bollywood who has been consistent in his career delivering back-to-back hits at the box office. He is also known for experimenting with his projects and pushing himself to the limits to portray a certain character. And it will be disheartening to see Aamir announcing his retirement from acting as soon as he decides to turn into a full-fledged filmmaker.He made his directorial debut with Taare Zameen Par starring Darsheel Safary and has backed films like Lagaan, Taare Zameen Par, Jaane Tu Yaha Jaane Na, Peepli Live, Dhobi Ghat, Delhi Belly, Talaash, Dangal and Secret Superstar, as a producer.While the filmmaking does excites him, Aamir told PTI, “The moment I become a full-fledged filmmaker I will stop acting. Right now, I don’t want to stop acting, that’s why I am holding back the director inside me.”He further added, “I am inclined towards filmmaking and I coincidentally directed Taare Zameen Par. I have been in love with filmmaking and acting and I can’t alienate the two but what I can say right now is that I began my career as an actor and it excites me.”Aamir is known for scoring big at the box office be it domestic or overseas with his all time blockbuster films like Dangal, PK, Dhoom 3, 3 Idiots and Ghajini. But Aamir says that his aim is to support good scripts and making money is not his agenda.”I had not thought at what pace I will make films. Usually, people make films with their production houses for business. That is not our first agenda. Creativity is our agenda. Till the time we don’t get a good script, we don’t make it into a film,” he said.During the media interaction, Aamir also said that he is ready to work in any part of the world if it excites him as an actor. However, he added that he doesn’t have a fascination for Hollywood.On his 54th birthday, Aamir announced his next project titled Lal Singh Chaddha, which will be an official adaptation of Tom Hanks’ 1994 film Forrest Gump.last_img read more

Congress to boycott TV debates for one month whats next

first_imgAfter an ignominous defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections consecutively for the second time, Congress, the grand-old party of India has decided to boycott the political debates on Indian TV channels for one month. Congress’s communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted asking TV anchors to not call spokespersons for debates.IANSIn a twitter message, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala stated:”INC has decided to not send spokespersons on television debates for a month. All media channels/editors are requested to not place Congress representatives on their shows.”The move has not surprised many since it shows that the grand-old party is tightening the belt to ponder its defects. Introspection is what the party needs now but boycotting the media per se may not be seen as a right gesture. Learning from the past is always the best way to start afresh.Had the routed Congress Party shun from Andhra Pradesh in 2000, then it would not have seen its leader YS Rajasekhara Reddy staging Padayatra and staking claim to power in four years. Similarly, Jagan would not have provided a choice to the voter had he shied away from politics following his party’s defeat in 2014. See the video below when Jagan said his party, indeed improved in 2014 and declared his vision for 2019: In fact, everybody questioned Jagan’s stake to power when YS Rajasekhara Reddy died in a chopper crash. Many voters were not convinced in 2014 to vote for Jagan’s party as the allegations of corruption against him stared them in the face. What has changed in the last five years that the voter has overwhlemingly pitched in for Jagan over everyone else?Leaving aside Prashant Kishore’s tactical advise just ahead of the poll, Jagan stood to the ground and remained very much among the people throughout, reading their pulse, nursing their grievances and driving their anger against the ruling Telugu Desam Party. The message from him remained constant as not a single year saw him missing on his famous Padayatra, a great virtue reserved only for the opposition party. Bereft of any power, an opposition leader easily gets assimilated with the common man that a leader in power cannot. This virtue has set Jagan apart and on the road to success from the day one he conceded his defeat in May 2014 elections.Currently, Congress has found itself in a similar situation. It has lost acceptance in the North, where the decades-old caste-based voting pattern has been enveloped by the bigger contours of religion. Secondly, the branding of a leader has become an inalienable testimony to any political party’s existence. Thirdly, the mindset of a voter is not to let his elected representatives who in turn elect someone else as their leader as per the Constitution but he wants to be decisive to the point of electing even the Prime Minister himself. This change of mindset requires reflection in Congress strategy.”Being in touch” versus “being away from the voter” is what drives the final mood of the voter. Reading the pulse of the voter is integral for every political party and Congress cannot shy away from the grass-roots level planning, whether in rural or urban areas. The bottom of the pyramid cannot be sensitivised unless an army of people work relentlessly at the ground zero. The impressive work done by RSS cadres in the last five months should not miss anybody’s perception of Modi’s return to power. Unless someone at the ground zero is vigilant, vibrant and wise, the leadership in Delhi cannot reap the benefits.Instead of shying away from the media glare, Congress should strengthen its social media channels of communication on one side and penetrate more socially-relevant groups to be “just in touch” with the people. Instead of roping in influencers, it should build such influencers within. Remaining relevant should be the first mantra of Congress so that the TV channels are forced to turn their focus on what Congress says.Every time Congress is defeated, it seeks to remain “out of touch” from the media. In 2014, Rahul Gandhi disappeared mysteriously for over a month and this time, the grand-old party is distancing itself from the media glare again for a month. Congress party certainly requires introspection at this stage but shunning the media altogether for a month is retrogressive.last_img read more

Sensex Nifty crash after US Fed hints at interest rate hike

first_imgIndian stocks witnessed a free fall on Thursday in response to fears that the US Federal Reserve could hike interest rates in December, which could trigger flight of capital from emerging markets such as India. The BSE Sensex closed 440 points, or 1.56 percent lower, at 27,643 while the NSE Nifty ended the day at 8,573, down 135 points, or 1.56 percent.Top Sensex losers were Adani Ports, HDFC, ICICI Bank and Reliance Industries while stocks that dragged the NSE Nifty down included Bank of Baroda, Adani Ports, Idea Cellular and Aurobindo Pharma.Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), which is due to declare its September quarter results in a few hours, lost 2.14 percent to close at Rs. 2,329.25 while Infosys gained 2.19 percent to end the day at Rs. 1,052.05 per share. Infosys will be declaring its Q2 results on Friday.Minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting held on Sept. 20 and 21 revealed that a hike in interest rate has gained strength but still needed more enabling data to go for it.”Members generally agreed that the case for an increase in the policy rate had strengthened,” according to the minutes.”But, with some slack likely remaining in the labor market and inflation continuing to run below the Committee’s objective, a majority of members judged that the Committee should, for the time being, await further evidence of progress toward its objectives of maximum employment and 2 percent inflation before increasing the target range for the federal funds rate,” it further said.A rate hike would encourage foreign institutional investors (FIIs) to move funds out of emerging economies such as India. A major contribution of rally in Indian stock markets is attributed to FI buying, especially in Sensex and Nifty stocks.The Sensex has gained 9.39 percent since April 1, 2016 (25,269) and FIIs have been net buyers of Indian equities since the beginning (April) of the current fiscal, including the first few days of trading this month.last_img read more
