From Dadri to Yakub Memon’s death: 16 things India outraged about in 2015

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal levelled allegations of corruption against union minister Arun Jaitley, after his office was raided. He claimed that when Jaitley was the president of DDCA in 2011, he “misused” his position. What followed was blame game over various aspects of the investigations, demand for resignation and filing of defamation case against Kejriwal.

Mauled government seeks CBI probe into cubs’ death, 10-year jail for poachers

Mauled by allies and opposition alike over the death of four tiger cubs in Chandrapur forests in the last couple of days, Maharashtra government has sought CBI inquiry into the incident and has also proposed to the Centre to impose tougher punishment on poachers.The state government has proposed that the punishment for poaching wild animals be enhanced to 10 years’ jail sentence along with a fine of Rs 5 lakh. The existing term under the Wildlife Protection (WP) Act, 1972, is seven years’ jail and Rs25,000 fine.”We have written to the Centre to amend the rules making stringent provisions for tiger poachers,” forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said on Tuesday.Four tiger cubs had died of malnutrition in Saoli forest of Chandrapur district as of Sunday morning. Three cubs were found dead, while the fourth died while undergoing treatment. Chandrapur is Mungantiwar’s home district.Stung by the criticism, Mungantiwar has sought the help of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to probe the death of tiger cubs. Justifying his move, Mungantiwar said, “We suspect that the cubs died as their mother didn’t breastfed them. The tigress, which is missing, may have been poached, or died while searching for food or water. Since CBI has the expertise to understand the complexities, we thought it would be better to seek their help.” Tigers are poached for smuggling its body parts to China where they were used for medicinal purposes, he pointed out.The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has claimed that 41 tigers died in Maharashtra, since January.The minister said the tigress and cubs were not part of Tiger Reserve area but buffer zone, where the surveillance is negligible. “We have hence ordered installation of camera traps and deployment of tiger reserve force in outer areas with significant number of big cats,” he said.According to wildlife officials, a tigress never goes more than half a kilometre for prey when it has one or two-month-old cubs. “Since there is no trace of the big cat or its pugmark in the area, we are worried it might have been killed,” said an official. He said the government had issued a resolution on providing four times compensation to the villagers whose lands were acquired for wildlife sanctuaries.Makes light of Sena remarksReacting to Shiv Sena’s demand in Saamna editorial, that he should take moral responsibility for the incident, Mungantiwar said, “I take it positively, as it will help us improve. As the minister for forests, I have to take moral responsibility.”<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Delhi police on Wednesday petitioned the high court for shifting a case of alleged destruction of evidence in the 1997 Uphaar fire tragedy being heard by a trial court to some other judge, accusing the one currently hearing it of “hostility” towards the complainant and the state.In its plea, the police has also alleged that the sessions court judge is “conducting the case in a manner alien to law and upon his own whims and fancies”.Hearing the matter, Justice Siddharth Mridul ordered issuance of notices to Ansal brothers, the owners of Uphaar theatre, and other accused in the case. The notices issued to real estate barons Sushil and Gopal Ansal, Dharamveer Malhotra and Anoop Singh are returnable before January 5 next year.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The move came on a plea moved by the Delhi police seeking the transfer of the case, pending in the court of an additional sessions judge at Patiala House court in New Delhi, to some other competent court having jurisdiction.”The atmosphere in the court is unfortunately very hostile qua the complainants and the state. The sessions court is conducting the case in a manner alien to law and upon his own whims and fancies which is resulting in the loss of confidence in the trial process. The victims who have fought a long battle in court are feeling intimidated and undermined,” the Delhi police plea said.They further said that the case of the prosecution is one of conspiracy, yet the judge is insisting that the case is argued piecemeal, i.e, the accused-wise and has stated he would pass orders accused-wise which is not only contrary to “elementary principles of conspiracy but also a stand adopted to prevent the prosecution from presenting its case in entirety.”The trial court had on May 31 last year ordered framing of charges against the seven accused for abetment of offence, causing disappearance of evidence, criminal breach of trust by public servant and criminal conspiracy.Theatre owners Gopal Ansal and his brother Sushil Ansal, Anoop Singh, Prem Prakash Batra, Harswaroop Panwar, Dharamveer Malhotra as well as a court employee, Dinesh Chandra Sharma, are accused of tampering with evidence in the case, pending since 2006.On June 13, 1997, a fire had broken out at the theatre during the screening of Bollywood film ‘Border’, killing 59 people and injuring over 100. A court had on January 31, 2003, ordered an inquiry after some documents related to the Uphaar case had gone missing from the court’s record room. After an inquiry, the court employee was dismissed from service.

The bench further observed that the city government has called for representation from various stakeholders of the society and as of today they have not finalised any scheme.

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to give interim stay on AAP government’s plan to impose the odd-even number plate formula for plying of private vehicles from January 1. A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath declined the request made by one of the five petitioners that the court should at least grant stay on the implementation of the government’s idea till January 6, which has been fixed as the next date of hearing on the PILs. “Sorry. We do not know whether it (the odd-even formula) will be implemented or not. The Delhi government has not yet come out with any scheme on this issue,” the bench said, adding, “As of today we cannot grant such relief.” The bench further observed that the city government has called for representation from various stakeholders of the society and as of today they have not finalised any scheme.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Additional Standing Counsel (ASC) Piyush Kalra, appearing for Delhi government, submitted before the court that as of now they have no notification for the proposed plan.

It said, “We are concerned about this class (physically challenged) of people, so the Delhi government should consider them as well.” “What precaution you are taking with regard to disabled people?” the bench asked the government. The court was hearing five PILs filed by different individuals against AAP government’s plan to impose odd-even number plate formula.

Khan was acquitted of the charge of drunk and driving and causing the death of one person and injuring three others in 2002.

The State government on Wednesday informed the Bombay High court that it has decided to appeal against the acquittal order given to actor Salman Khan in the Supreme Court, in the 2002 hit and run case. Government pleader Abhinandan Vangyani said that the sanction has been given by the state law and judiciary department and the appeal would be filed in January. The Prosecution recently sent its recommendations and suggestions to the State Home department suggesting the points based on which the government can appeal against the judgment of the Bombay High Court acquitting actor Salman Khan of all charges. <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The high court had while completely discarding the evidence of star prosecution witness deceased constable Ravindra Patil, had noted that the evidence was recorded before the magistrate court when the charge against Khan was under section 304 (A) (causing death due to rash and negligent act). However, when the serious charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder was added and the case was being heard before the sessions court, Patil was not available for examination by the prosecution and cross-examination by the defence thus his evidence could not be accepted.High Court in its 304-page judgment said the prosecution has failed to prove all charges against Salman khan beyond a reasonable doubt. There were several infirmities and improvements in the testimony of witnesses. The court has also held that the prosecution is not able to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt and the trial court had erred in wrongly appreciating the evidence brought on record by the prosecution. It was also held that Khan was drunk and driving the car at the time of the accident.Khan was acquitted of the charge of drunk and driving and causing the death of one person and injuring three others in 2002.

“It was a quite extraordinary fact that within the space of four months there were two head of the state visits, one first to the United States in September of 2014 and then Prime Minister Modi invited the President to India just four months later in January,” the official said.

US President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have developed a strong and productive relationship between them, a top American climate change official has said.”President Obama and Prime Minister Modi have a very, strong and productive relationship, not just on climate change but broadly,” Todd Stern, the US Special Envoy on Climate Change said yesterday.”It was a quite extraordinary fact that within the space of four months there were two head of the state visits, one first to the United States in September of 2014 and then Prime Minister Modi invited the President to India just four months later in January,” the official said.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Thereafter the two leaders have been close communications with each other. “They met on the margins of the UNGA in New York and they met on the first day of the Paris meeting,” Stern said.According to Stern the meeting was a very warm and positive, cordial and detailed.”In fact, they talked so long that they were both supposed to go and did go finally, but they were a little bit late to the announcement of this big Mission Innovation idea on R&D that both well, the United States, India, China, many other countries ultimately were part of,” the US official said.”So I think, that the call later, sort of more towards the end, was a check-in call to see how we were doing and to urge us all on together toward a successful conclusion. And I think it was done in that spirit, not in the spirit that there was some specific thing that had to be done before the agreement could get completed,” Stern said.

Government will install remote censor cameras on some roads to access traffic loads during this scheme.According to the government’s plan, it will run 6,000 additional buses to accommodate numbers of passengers after the implementation of odd-even scheme.

In a blow to the 11 policemen whose life sentence was suspended for a period of six months by Maharashtra government, the Bombay High Court on Monday granted an interim stay on the suspension order and directed them to surrender by January 4.The state government had last month passed an order by which it suspended for six months the life sentence imposed on 11 policemen convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the fake encounter of alleged Chhota Rajan gang member Ramnarayan Gupta alias Lakhanbhaiya in November 2006.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Lakhanbhaiya was shot dead allegedly by the policemen in suburban Versova. The 11 policemen were released from jail on December 3. Lakhanbhaiya’s brother Ramprasad Gupta, a practising advocate, approached the high court challenging the government’s decision and terming it as “illegal, null, void, bad in law, perverse, unreasonable, arbitrary, cryptic, vague and liable to be quashed and set aside.”A division bench of justices R V More and V L Achiliya on Monday heard the petitioner’s advocate Yug Choudhary, the policemen’s counsel Girish Godbole and prosecutor Usha Kejriwal at length.”The government cannot take such decision of suspension in a case where a public servant has been convicted on a charge punishable with death. Such a suspension amounts to release of a convict from prison,” Justice More said.”There are hundreds of prisoners who are suffering from serious medical ailments. The government should consider their cases also for such suspension of sentence orders,” Justice Achiliya said.The court, while admitting the petition, granted stay on the suspension order and directed the policemen to surrender by January 4. The petition has been posted for further hearing on March 7. A sessions court had earlier convicted 21 people in the case, including the 11 policemen, and awarded them life imprisonment, while acquitting only encounter specialist Pradip Sharma in July 2013.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking his cooperation on the ‘odd-even’ initiative, and said directives or a public appeal by him in this regard would have a “major impact”.In a letter, Kejriwal apprised the Prime Minister that he, along with his colleagues, would carpool to office during the January 1-15 period when the vehicle rationing scheme will kick in and urged Modi to request Union ministers and secretaries to do the same. Kejriwal said the AAP government had to resort to the “unexpected and disagreeable decision” in order to mitigate air pollution in Delhi, which has assumed “dreadful proportions”.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”People will surely have to face some difficulties in the wake of its implementation… We are all answerable for this problem and we can find out a solution together only,” Kejriwal wrote in the letter.”The Delhi government is taking a lot of steps in this regard and has decided to implement the odd-even measures on an experimental basis. The blueprint is being worked out but it has already been decided that autos, cabs, public transport, ambulances, and emergency vehicles will be out of its ambit,” he added.Kejriwal, who has cycled on designated stretches during the past car-free days in the city, said if the experiment meets success then “we may repeat it in the future”.”I want to request you through this letter to inspire your ministers and secretaries to observe the same. This will send out a good message to the residents of Delhi and our efforts will get support. I believe that if there is a directive or appeal from your side to follow or comply with these rules than it will have a major impact,” Kejriwal wrote.In a radical step to curb air pollution, the Kejriwal government had announced earlier this month that private vehicles bearing odd and even registration numbers will be allowed to ply only on alternate days starting January 1.

Mizoram in 2015: Of various Governor appointments, Brus and the lift of liquor ban

Frequent change of governors dominated the political scenario in Mizoram in 2015 which also saw lifting of an 18-year-old ban on liquor in the state.

Frequent change of governors dominated the political scenario in Mizoram in 2015 which also saw lifting of an 18-year-old ban on liquor in the state.The year began with the swearing-in of Aziz Qureshi as governor on January 9 by Justice Michael Zothankhuma, who himself was sworn-in as a judge of Gauhati High Court two days ago.Qureshi was then removed on March 28 and West Bengal Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi was asked to take additional charge of Mizoram. On May 26, Lt Gen (Retd) Nirbhay Sharma, the present governor, was sworn-in at the Durbal Hall of Raj Bhavan. The frequent change of governors drew sharp criticism from many quarters and the Mizo Zirlai Pawl or Mizo students’ federation staged a protest demonstration in front of the Raj Bhavan on April 4, just before Tripathi was sworn-in. The central committee of the Young Mizo Association (YMA), the largest community-based organisation in the state, also condemned the frequent change of governors. Sharma is the eighth governor of Mizoram to be appointed after Vakkom Purushothaman resigned on July 12, 2014 in protest against his transfer to Nagaland by the NDA government.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>After the state remained under a stringent prohibition regime for 18 years, the Mizoram Liquor Prohibition and Control Act, 2014 came into force from January 15 and liquor shops opened from March 16 in Aizawl from where permit holders could buy and consume Indian made foreign liquor. Following this, Conference of the Synod, the highest decision-making authority of the Mizoram Presbyterian Church, decided that people selling liquor and holding permit for purchase and consumption of alcohol will not be allowed to take active part in church activities.Repatriation of Brus lodged in six relief camps in North Tripura district also dominated headlines. On the Bru issue, the Mizoram government chalked out a road map for repatriation commencing from June 2 and to be continued till September 4. According to the road map, it was planned that Mamit district along Mizoram-Tripura border would host 2,594 Bru families, while 628 would be resettled in Kolasib district along Mizoram-Assam border and 233 families in south Mizoram’s Lunglei district. However, the mega plan for which Rs 68 crore was earmarked failed as not a single Bru came forward for identification as bona fide resident of Mizoram. The Brus had migrated to Tripura from Mizoram en masse during the later part of 1997 after militants belonging to the erstwhile Bru National Liberation front gunned down Lalzawmliana, a forest guard working inside the Dampa Tiger Reserve near Persang hamlet on October 21 that year. The first effort to repatriate the Brus on November 16, 2009 was not only hampered by the murder of a Mizo youth, Zarzokima of Mizoram-Tripura border Bungthuam village by Bru militants on November 13, 2009, but also triggered another round of exodus. Though hundreds of Bru families have been repatriated since 2010, many of them refused to return to Mizoram due to obstruction from anti-repatriation leaders who made a plethora of demands to the Centre and the state government. All the civil societies in the state opposed the Election Commission’s decision to conduct special summary revision of voters’ lists in the six Bru relief camps in Tripura resulting in the obstruction of the state election department officials from leaving for the relief camps from Mamit on November 9. The civil societies and leaders of the political parties insisted that those Brus who refused to return to Mizoram despite repeated pleas should be disfranchised in the Mizoram voters’ list.The death of former Chief Minister Brig Thenphunga Sailo, a towering figure among the Mizos and also well-known in the national politics, on March 27 was a blow to the state. Sailo formed the Peoples’ Conference (PC) on April 17, 1975 and it won the Mizoram union territory elections in 1977. Subsequently, it formed the government with Sailo becoming the state’s second chief minister. However, his government did not last long due to defections and Mizoram was placed under the President’s Rule for a brief period. But he bounced back to power in 1979. His party lost the 1984 elections with the Congress led by Lal Thanhawla. Sailo’s son Lalhmangaiha Sailo took over the baton of his party and renamed it as Mizoram People’s Conference (MPC).Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla’s brother Lal Thanzara resigned as MLA on August 18 after allegations of ‘conflict of interests’ and giving undue favour to a company by awarding crores of rupees worth contract as he was holding shares in that construction company. Opposition Mizo National Front (MNF) lodged an FIR with the Anti-Corruption Bureau against Lal Thanzara alleging the latter was indulging in corruption and misuse of office.Following his resignation, the Aizawl North-III Assembly seat fell vacant and a bypoll was held on November 21 in which he defeated his nearest rival K Vanlalvena of the MNF. He was sworn-in as a minister and was allocated Health, Information and Communication Technology and Information and Public Relations portfolios. Three Mizoram Police personnel were gunned down by suspected Manipur-based Hmar People’s Convention (Democrats) near Mizoram-Manipur-Assam border Zokhawthiang on March 28. The slain policemen were part of a team of the state Assembly committee on government assurances visiting the area. The militants, after the ambush, decamped with two AK-47 rifles and five pistols without harming the three MLAs, including the lone woman legislator Vanlalawmpuii Chawngthu, who were members of the Assembly team. Several HPC(D) militants including its self-styled army chief Lalropuia Famhoite, ‘finance secretary’ Norbar Sanate and self-styled sergeant major Biakliana, commander of the group which ambushed the Assembly committee team, were arrested.Elections to the village councils and local councils within the jurisdiction of the Aizawl Municipal Council (AMC), now upgraded to a corporation, were held on April 30 in which the ruling Congress won. However, the elections could not be held in 31 villages in Aizawl and Kolasib districts due to threats from the HPC(D).Another violent incident erupted in southern Mizoram’s Chawngte town on August 4, leaving a 20-year-old student dead in police firing to disperse agitators, which resulted in the ransacking of 19 houses belonging to rulingCongress leaders, including the Chief Executive Member of the Chakma Autonomous District Council (CADC) Buddha Lila Chakma and 21 government vehicles were damaged by the agitators.The Mizoram Chakma Students Union (MSCU) spearheaded a protest against alleged fraudulent recruitment of 101 employees by the CADC. The incident had a political fallout resulting in the exit of Chakma, who was replaced by Kali Kumar Tongchongya.The opposition MNF won the elections to the 19-seat Aizawl Municipal Corporation (AMC) held on November 26 by bagging 11 seats, defeating the Congress and MPC.

Car dealers urge NGT to allow sale of 2015 diesel car inventory

The senior counsel went on to add that the car dealers had bought stocks of close to 10,000 cars and more than Rs2,000 crore will be lost approximately.

A group of automobile dealers on Tuesday appealed against the National Green Tribunal’s (NGT) order banning the registration of new diesel cars till January 6, pleading the bench to allow sale of existing inventory of cars as an interim relief for car dealers and car companies. Appearing for the group of automobile dealers comprising of Koncept Automobiles, a leading Mahindra and Mahindra car dealer, was senior counsel Pinaki Misra. Misra pleaded that the NGT’s order banning diesel vehicle registration was ‘harsh’ and sought a modification in it. “This (diesel cars) is not a banned article. We are saddled with stocks of 2015 which would be difficult to dispose off in 2016 due to the NGT order.”<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The senior counsel went on to add that the car dealers had bought stocks of close to 10,000 cars and more than Rs2,000 crore will be lost approximately. “Thousands of stock will be stuck and even car buyers will suffer losses as they have paid advances on the basis of loans. I am sitting on 100% paid vehicles.”After hearing out Misra’s arguments, the bench headed by justice Swatanter Kumar asked the Centre and Delhi government to state their clear stand on the issue of stopping the registration of diesel cars. The bench also said that since the Supreme Court too was hearing a similar appeal by car dealers, it would not be appropriate for them to pass an order.The bench then went onto add that by Wednesday union ministry of environment and forests, ministry of petroleum and natural gas, Delhi government, Central Pollution Control Board and union ministry of road transport and highways should all specify their position on the ban on diesel vehicles and on causes of pollution in the capital.It also asked the union ministry of road transport and highways to explain by Wednesday the delay in switching over to cleaner fuel standards such as Bharat Stage-V or BS-V.

Don’t register new diesel vehicles in capital: NGT tells Delhi govt

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday ordered the Delhi government to not register any new diesel vehicle from now on. The order, probably the first such in India, came from a bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar on a petition by Vardhaman Kaushik.The bench specifically asked the Delhi and Union governments to not buy diesel vehicles. “We direct the government to take a conscientious decision with regard to not buying diesel vehicles, whether by the central or the state government. “We direct all public authorities, corporations, DDA, police and other public departments to prepare an action plan for phasing out diesel vehicles, particularly trucks being used by these bodies,” the bench said. <!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Tribunal then told the Delhi government and the Centre: be ready with your action plans by January 6. Earlier this year, the NGT had passed an order for condemning 10-year-old diesel vehicles and 15-year old petrol vehicles. In its eight-page order on Friday, the bench said: “As an interim measure, till the next date of posting, subject to hearing all concerned parties, we direct that diesel vehicles of more than 10 years, as already directed, as well as new diesel vehicles would not be registered in NCT, Delhi.” This order, it said, has to be implemented with its earlier ones such as prohibition on burning of waste and dumping of construction waste on roads. The entire government machinery should clamp down on such activities, it said.That’s more green sheen in Delhi.The odd and even of AAP planWhat is even to the Chief Justice of India looks odd to the NGT. The NGT bench on Friday questioned the Delhi government’s odd-even traffic plan. The Tribunal said it has doubts about the efficacy and success of the plan. Only a few days ago, Supreme Court Chief Justice TS Thakur favoured the plan and advised fellow-judges to opt for a car-pool system. Have green belt around schoolsWhile addressing the hazard of toxic air on school children, the NGT said: “In relation to taking adequate measures for preventing air pollution in schools, particularly government and corporation schools, NCT Delhi is directed to submit a proposal for creating green belt, by covering the ground with grass and installing air filters in schools.”

Will study NGT order on diesel-run vehicles: Delhi government

Earlier in the day, the NGT directed that diesel-run vehicles will not be registered in Delhi with immediate effect and asked the central and state government departments not to purchase such vehicles. Under interim measures, there will be no renewal of registration of diesel vehicles which are more than 10-year-old.
