Odd-Even Rule: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal asks his ministers to lead by example

Kumar will commute by bus and will leave his Raj Niwas Road residence for Secretariat at 11 AM. Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra will ride a bike to Secretariat from his Yamuna Vihar residence. Thousands of civil defence volunteers will be deployed to assist the Traffic Police, enforcement teams of Delhi government’s transport department and authorised sub- divisional magistrates, to implement the scheme which will kick in at 8 AM on Friday. Under the scheme, private cars with odd registration numbers will be allowed to ply on odd dates and those with even numbers on even dates.

Odd-even scheme will fail, AAP looking for escape route, says BJP

She said infrastructure development and better traffic management were ways to deal with pollution and cited the highway project launched by the Centre on Thursday in this regard. The Centre, Lekhi said, had given an additional fund of Rs 1200 crore to the Delhi government for sewage treatment but nothing has been done so far. AAP has also done nothing on its promise of ‘swaraj’, she said, noting that adequate funds were not being given to local bodies. Instead the AAP government was using Delhi’s resources for political purposes, she said, referring to its publicity budget of Rs 526 crore.

Almost 53% Delhiites feel okay with undergoing cosmetic surgery to improve looks

From smoothening the skin and erasing wrinkles to getting a sculpted physique or a slim waist, the desire to look like a magazine cover model is not just a teenage whim anymore.A recent study, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Consciousness of Appearance Survey-2015, has revealed a growing aspiration amongst residents of Delhi-NCR across all age groups to look their sharpest. While 41% of the women surveyed believe that cosmetic surgery is the most effective way to reshape the body, the men were not behind as 37 % of them agreed it was so.Also, 47% of the women and 42 % of the men who took part in the survey believe that plastic surgery helps attract potential partners. As many as 52 % of the women respondents felt that plastic surgery helps increase professional opportunities while among men, 37 % believed so.The survey, which was conducted online from October 10 to 24, covered 709 people (193 men and 516 women) aged 25 years and older, including employed professionals, housewives, students and retired professionals.While 51.7 % of the respondents agreed or somewhat agreed that there has been a shift in the attitude of Indians towards plastic surgery, 50 % of them said that they would consider going for plastic surgery in the future.More than half of those who took part in the survey, 53 %, believe that spending money on improving one’s appearance is an investment. The report was released by the Department of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at Max Super Speciality Hospital here.”Cosmetic surgery has existed in India for more than four decades now, but Indians continued to refer to it in hush-hush tones. “53 % of the people surveyed view cosmetic surgery as an investment. This is definite proof that people are now looking at plastic surgery as a valid scientific means of improving appearance,” said Dr Sunil Choudhary, Director, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at the hospital, who had conducted the survey.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

BMC has a New Year gift for Bhendi Bazaar

The year 2016 could probably herald a sea change in the fortunes of Bhendi Bazaar if everything goes as planned. Its much talked about Rs4,000-crore cluster redevelopment project has finally received the commencement certificate (CC) and works on the project are likely to commence soon.”We have received the CC for our sub-cluster development from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). We will rehabilitate the tenants in this sub-cluster, providing them a minimum of 350 sq.ft carpet area and 300 sq.ft of commercial space under redevelopment plan. As many as 4,500 units will be constructed as part of the project,” said Abbas Master, CEO of Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT).It’s the SBUT that has undertaken the 16.5-acre cluster redevelopment (33.9) plan, located in the heart of South Mumbai. It has already engaged the New York-based architect and designer firm, Perkins Eastman to work on the project.The sub-cluster area is around four acres, and around 700 tenants and 300 commercial establishments will have to be rehabilitated. “We will complete this sub-cluster works in three to 3.5 years, while the entire project will take 10 years. It is one of the biggest cluster redevelopment in the entire country. The Centre and Maharashtra are supporting this model project and are keen on replicating it in other parts of India,” Abbas Master said.He said the unique features about the project are its self-sustainable and eco-friendly aspects. “Each cluster will have its own sewerage treatment and power plant. There will be rainwater harvesting facility and solar panels to generate electricity. While there is no green cover at present, the redeveloped area will have 700 trees of various categories. Besides, it will have a 3.5-km-long shopping street. It will be of multiple levels where people will enjoy the shopping experience,” Abbas Master said.”The proposed roads will be 15 to 16 metres in width, and huge area will be earmarked for parking and recreation, with emphasis on greenery,” said Master adding, “Our primary agenda is to rehabilitate the people hit by the project.”Master said that the project will not only change the face of South Mumbai but also improve people’s living condition. “It will transform Bhendi Bazaar into a diverse sustainable community with a healthy neighbourhood, creating a vibrant urban area,” he said.Since the inception of the cluster development programme in 2009, a total of 46 projects were planned. But, as of now, only a couple of them are expected to become a reality, and Bhendi Bazaar could be the first.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Separatist leader Asiya Andrabi dismisses allegations of any IS link

“We do not have any connections with any other group outside the state,” she claimed. Three Hyderabad-based cousins, who allegedly planned to join “jihadi terror groups”, were picked up from Nagpur international airport while on their way to Srinagar, months after they were put under watch for being influenced by online ISIS propaganda. The trio allegedly aspired to meet Andrabi using the name of their late uncle, former chief of Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), Syed Salahuddin. <!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

BJP rubbishes Mamata Banerjee govt’s claims on West Bengal’s growth

Buttressing his point that Bengal’s 10.48 per cent growth in 2014-15 was due to its low base, he said a poor state like Bihar had grown by 17 per cent for the same reason. The state government’s claim about starting of projects worth over Rs 91,000 crore was also “misleading”, he said, noting that work worth over Rs 70,000 crore pertained to the Centre. He also hit out at the Congress government in Assam for registration of a criminal case against BJP workers over their protests at its office. He alleged that that it took no action against its leaders involved in targeting BJP leaders and the party office. “It is a case of double standards,” he said.

‘Deep flaws’ in Facebook’s India plan

A group of leading Indian academics criticise Facebook’s controversial Free Basics internet plan, saying it has “deep flaws”.

Over 40% faculty posts for OBC in higher education institutions lying vacant

The activists and academicians working for the rights of the reserved category candidates, however, feel that it is the lack of sincere effort and a conscious conspiracy by the institutions and the government that these posts are lying vacant. “It is hard to believe that 40 percent of seats are vacant. Non availability of a suitable candidate is a routine assessment by the government,” said Rajya Sabha MP D Raja.
Raja also alleged that it is the mindset of the establishments towards the reserved classes that these posts do not get filled up.Dalit activist Paul Divakar also blames the prevailing prejudices against the OBCs and other backward classes. “The institutions give a second class treatment to these candidates. Instead to make them suitable for the mainstream the institutions should bear the cost so that the OBCs can get adapted into the mainstream,” said Divakar of the National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights.BJP leader Udit Raj who also represents the community blames the premium institutions. “Instead of providing them a cushion so that they can compete with the mainstream, institutions adopt a discriminatory policy,” said Raj.

Centre set to allow bull taming sport ‘Jallikattu’ despite Supreme Court ban

The Supreme Court had banned using bulls for Jallikattu events or bullock-cart races across the country and directed governments and Animal Welfare Board of India to take steps to prevent the infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering on animals. The ban on Jallikattu has dampened Pongal festivities in the state, especially in southern districts where it has been a popular event for centuries, and there has been demands for facilitating its conduct.
Javadekar had earlier hinted that the Centre would consider taking steps, including amending laws to allow the sport.

Eurasian Thicknee comes calling for third time in 50 years

Maharashtra Nature Park (MNP) at Dharavi is attracting a lot of birdwatchers these days, thanks to the sighting of Eurasian Thicknee. It’s for the first time that this mid-sized bird has been sighted in the park. Experts say the bird is uncommon to Mumbai and has been sighted in the city only twice before in the last 50 years.It was a nature photographer, who while taking pictures inside MNP on December 26, first clicked the bird and showed the images to deputy director of the Park, Avinash Kubal, who identified it. “Though I knew that it had never been sighted at the Park, we still checked all the records – documented by several birders – and confirmed it,” said Kubal adding the news soon spread and he has been getting a lot of calls from bird-lovers who wanted to confirm it.Kubal found four individual Eurasian Thicknee – two of which seem to be chicks – at MNP. Visitors or nature photographers are being escorted by the MNP nature guides to see the bird to ensure that their habitat or surrounding is not disturbed. “We will keep our vigil,” said Kubal.Avid birdwatcher Adesh Shivkar, who has even prepared a guide, listing the birds sighted at MNP in 2014, sharing his delight said as per records this bird was sighted in 2000 at Dahisar, Gorai belt and in 1940 by Humayun Abdulali and Salim Ali at Andheri and never recorded at MNP.”This scrubland bird, which stays close to the forested patches and waterbody is common in many parts of India but uncommon to Mumbai. Its sighting at MNP should be cheered as it can be said that city has not lost all its biodiversity hotspots. In fact, we can see many birds at MNP, which are not found in city (excluding Sanjay Gandhi National Park and Aarey forest),” said Shivkar adding the bird has been spotted outskirts of Mumbai in places like Dombivli, Karjat and Uran.Shivkar said the sighting highlights the need and importance of green islands like MNP. “We have been hearing proposals to redevelop MNP with bridges and promenade, keeping it lit up till night. All these would only hurt the existing rich biodiversity of this place and time has come where we plan things keeping the biodiversity in mind and not human needs,” said Shivkar.Meanwhile, there have been reports of this bird being sighted in the Sewri mudflats too on Sunday.Eurasian Thicknee, with a length of 38-46 cm and wingspan of 76 to 88 cm, sports a strong yellow and black beak with large yellow eyes. The wings of this bird bears black and white markings.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Good that Congress is reconciling with historical facts: Jitender Singh

The article published has been written and published by the party’s Mumbai unit and has caused a stir within the rank and file. It clearly blames Nehru for the state of affairs in Kashmir, China and Tibet and states that Nehru should have listened to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s views on international affairs.The article, which does not reveal the name of the writer, has been published in this month’s issue of ‘Congress Darshan’ Hindi edition as a tribute piece to mark Patel’s death anniversary on December 15.”Despite Patel getting the post of deputy prime minister and home minister, relations between the two leaders remained strained, and both had threatened to resign time and again,” the article says.

Separatist leader Asiya Andrabi takes on RSS, opposes new year celebrations in Gulmarg

“On one hand our youth are laying down their lives for Islam and on the other hand these shameless programmes are being held. We should not play a part in these plans of the RSS otherwise on the day of judgement the martyrs will question us before Allah and we will not be able to face the Prophet,” she said.

Fragile Western Ghats paying price of development

On Friday, dna had reported that Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa, Gujarat and Kerala have recommended that only 19,702.85 sqkm of eco-sensitive area (ESA) should be retained as against the 56,825 sqkm that was identified by the K Kasturirangan-led committee, opening up the rest for development and commercial activities. The state governments were unhappy with the Kasturirangan report and thus the central Government had allowed them to physically verify their ESAs.

“It is high time for all the political parties to support the bill without excuses and explanations. The restoration of Sardar-e-Riyasat and post of Prime Minister would not mean a permanent solution to the dispute of Jammu and Kashmir but will be an act to respect the court orders and a move to satisfy the sentiments of masses,” he said.

Bihar engineers’ murder reminder of ‘jungle raj’ days: Giriraj Singh

The Chief Minister should concentrate on law and order front and curb “rising” cases of dacoity, murder, kidnapping and extortion, the Lok Sabha MP from Nawada said. Asked about stones being brought near the disputed site in Ayodhya, Singh said the Supreme Court has never banned such an activity. “We respect Supreme Court’s ruling in the case, but people must know that a Ram Temple would never be built in Pakistan,” he said. The Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises was in the city to review the progress of ongoing projects of his department.

Indian-origin wannabe MP sets up own political party in UK

An Indian-origin former MP candidate who stood for the far-right UK Independence Party in May general elections has started his own single-issue political party, calling for the UK to throw open its borders to all.Harjinder Singh, who attracted public and media interest during the last general election campaign after spending 13 hours a day waving at cars on a busy traffic junction, has now set up Open Borders Party.
At the time, he was standing as Euro-sceptic UK Independence Party’s (UKIP) parliamentary candidate for the safe Labour Party seat of Birmingham Perry Barr.The ‘Asian Image’ reported that the 38-year-old bank worker and former Conservative party activist said he had joined UKIP because it was the only group offering withdrawal from the European Union and admitted he had been “a little bit naive” about its anti-immigrant policies.He has now set up Open Borders Party, campaigning to open the UK’s doors to anyone without a criminal record or a contagious disease – so long as they pay an entry fee, and higher taxes.Singh, who joined UKIP in 2014, told the newspaper: “There’s no perfect political party. I was a little bit naive with regard to some of their (UKIP’s) other policies, as they’ve bolted some on, and those don’t represent me.”That for me is where I draw the line, but with regard to the main core party view, which is to leave the EU, UKIP were the only party saying that which is why I joined.” He claims UKIP officials tried to talk him out of his maverick move to campaign standing in the middle of one of Europe’s busiest traffic thoroughfares – the Scott Arms junction in north Birmingham.”A lot of people were saying ‘don’t stand at the Scott Arms, start knocking doors and meet people’,” he said. “I felt, here I was, a Sikh male, campaigning for UKIP with no budget meeting hundreds and hundreds of people every day.” Singh, who lost to Labour in the May polls, has signalled his intention to stand for his party in the Perry Barr seat in the next election as well. <!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Radhe Maa to Anupam Kher: 8 stars who ‘broke out’ in 2015

When a host of awards were being returned to protest ‘intolerance’, Anupam Kher and his band of angry men took out a ‘March for India’ where Kher claimed that he wouldn’t tolerate any talk of intolerance under his watch. He also directed some outrage at his colleague Dibakar Banerjee for returning an award that frankly he had no right to return (since it was the award for Best Film and belonged to the producers). All in all, Anupam Kher was the breakout ‘unexpected star’ of the year.

Two dead as massive earthquake rattles Jammu and Kashmir

A massive earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale rocked Jammu and Kashmir leaving two people dead and bringing back memories of horrors during the 2005 temblor in the restive state.The tremors were felt at around 12.45am when people were in deep sleep. Braving bone-chilling cold, people rushed out of their homes and assembled in the open areas reciting verses of the holy Quran.Two people died of heart attacks in J&K post the earthquake. Zahid Ahmad suffered a cardiac arrest due to the shock at Gulatha Harni village in Mendhar of Poonch district in Jammu division. A 42-year-old old baker also suffered cardiac arrest as he rushed out of his home in Ganderbal district following the earthquake.”We are trying to inquire into the causes of the death of the person. We are trying to ascertain whether he died due to the earthquake or if there are other causes for this death. If it is found in the enquiry that he died due to the tremors, I will sanction the relief”, Mohammad Haroon, deputy commissioner, Poonch told dna.Senior superintendent of police, Ganderbal, Imitiyaz Parry said a man has died but police were not told about it. “We have su moto notice and have sent a police party to check out the details”, he said.This is the second time in the last three months that Jammu and Kashmir has been rocked by a powerful temblor. On October 27 a powerful earthquake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale wreaked havoc killing two elderly women. Two army men suffered serious injuries when their bunker wall collapsed in the quake.Panic gripped the Kashmir Valley with people rushing out of their homes taking refuge on the roadside. Screams of women rent the air at a number of places as panic-stricken people prayed for safety. Some women and children even fainted due to fear.The scene was a throwback to the October 2005 quake when thousands of people died and tens of thousands of houses and other structures were damaged in the border areas of Uri and Tangdhar sectors of north Kashmir.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Diplomats hail move but with caution

Sumitra Kumar, senior research fellow at the premier strategic think-tank – Institute of Defence Studies and Analysis (IDSA) — however, is apprehensive about Nawaz Sharif’s manoeuvrability with regard to terror elements given that the Punjab provincial government has over the last few years been allocating considerable funds in its annual budget for the Jamaat ud Dawa. “Even faced with the improbability of making much headway on terrorism and Kashmir in the resumed dialogue, it is still important for India to engage with Pakistan. If India hopes to be taken seriously by the international community it should be seen to be managing its relationships with the neighbours earnestly,” Kumar said. Also, continuing the dialogue might tend to weaken the anti-India elements in Pakistan, he said. Besides, the experience of the last 18 months during which the dialogue was interrupted twice has brought both governments to the view that if any forward movement has to be made in improving relations they can only resort to a dialogue and nothing else,” said Kumar, an expert on Pakistan and military affairs.

Nawaz Sharif gets birthday hug from Narendra Modi in Lahore; surprise move stuns even PM’s own party

“Spoke to PM Nawaz Sharif & wished him on his birthday,” came the first tweet. The twitter handle was @narendramodi.Then came the second. “Looking forward to meeting PM Nawaz Sharif in Lahore today afternoon, where I will drop by on my way back to Delhi.”It took the world by surprise. Modi was in Kabul then. But at the end of the two-and-a-half hours in Pakistan, the two sides had given trust a big push. The two leaders agreed to increase people-to-people contact and take talks forward.The prime minister’s choice of the day for the visit was also significant. It was not only Christmas day, it was Nawaz Sharif’s birthday as well. It was also the Rasm-e-Heena (a wedding ceremony) of Sharif’s granddaughter Mehr ul Nisa.In fact, Modi was recreating what his mentor A B Vajpayee did in 1999, that too on the latter’s birthday.In his inimitable style, Modi ended 2015 with a unique diplomatic venture, having dinner in Moscow, breakfast and lunch in Kabul and afternoon Kashmiri noon chai (salt tea) at Sharif’s Raiwand residence.The surprise move even caught Modi’s own party, the BJP, off-guard. Its leaders, however, characterised it as one of PM’s “pleasant surprises”.Though official sources here said that the PM himself took this “instantaneous” decision, the sequence of events over the past one week, makes one believe that a window was being explored behind-the-scene for this highly secretive visit.Pakistan’s high commissioner in India, Abdul Basit, had left for Islamabad last Tuesday. The presence of an Indian industrialist in Lahore, who had arranged a one-to-one meeting between Modi and Sharif on the sidelines of the SAARC summit in Kathmandu last year, to attend Sharif’s birthday as well as the wedding of his granddaughter, doesn’t seem a coincidence.After the meeting, Pakistani foreign secretary Aizaz Chaudhry said: “The Modi-Sharif meeting was held in a very cordial atmosphere… It has been decided that there will be greater interaction, people-to-people contact, and an environment of goodwill will be created.”Pakistani channels reported that both the prime ministers were in a casual mood during the chai pe charcha, which included vegetables, kheer and special Kashmiri salt tea. Sharif later saw off PM Modi at the airport.Chaudhry said that during the brief meeting, the two PMs decided that as part of a comprehensive dialogue, the foreign secretaries of the two countries will meet in mid-January.Attempting to dispel the notion that the visit was pre-planned, Chaudhry said that the Pakistani PM’s adviser on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz and National Security Adviser Nasir Janjua too would have attended the meeting if the Indian PM had informed about his visit earlier.He added that the two sides decided to collectively work towards the common goal of fighting poverty and to open new avenues for peace and mutual cooperation between the two neighbouring countries.Special security arrangements were put in place in and around Lahore. Flights were diverted or grounded, hours before the Indian Air Force plane hit the tarmac of the Alama Iqbal Airport, Lahore. Modi had left for Moscow in Air India One, meant for the PM’s foreign travels, he arrived in Kabul and Lahore in an Indian Air Force plane which was escorted by a decoy plane and was also laced with defence systems.Modi is scheduled to visit Pakistan once again, in September 2016, to attend the SAARC summit.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

With Pak visit, Modi’s foreign policy circle is complete

Ever since Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, he has been insisting on Foreign Policy and it has been on the top agenda. He has already visited almost 55 States but was criticised for not having visited Pakistan. In fact, in the earlier Indian government between 1998 to 2003, Atal Bihari Vajpayee had visited Pakistan twice in 1999 and 2002, once before and after the Kargil war. He was the one who constituted the process of peace building with Pakistan. So it was expected that Modi would carry forward the same legacy.So Modi’s visit to Pakistan was not spontaneous, it was a well decided and pre-determined sort of move, but was obviously kept out of media glare as there was tremendous public pressure and in a way India had to break the ice.Another important reason we have to look at is that Modi first visited Russia followed by Afghanistan and then Pakistan. In the last six months, India has been growing close to the United States of America (US) and Russia is getting closer to Pakistan so that made India look at relations with Russia from a whole new perspective. India has a very crucial role to play in Afghanistan, which is being opposed by Pakistan and to avoid this, India has to normalise it’s relations with Pakistan. This will be necessary to maintain balance on regional and international issues.In the last one year, Modi may have realised that cutting off the peace process and breaking ties with Pakistan did not yield any result. On the contrary, it ultimately increased the importance of the military in Pakistan and not of the political executive.India’s policy to keep its neighbours in confidence cannot be completed until and unless it normalises its relations with Pakistan. The ultimate reality is that there is no alternative solution for resolving Kashmir, Siachen and Sir Creek issues which have been pending for decades. Initiating the talks is the only solution to find the remedy for all pending issues with Pakistan.Since Russia and China are getting closer to Pakistan the triangle that is emerging from their relations, if developed, can be disastrous to India. So it is important for India to neutralise that aspect also. Hence Modi’s visit was well-planned in the order it took place, that is, Russia, Afghanistan and Pakistan. With this the foreign policy circle is completed, which had been left incomplete by the UPA government.One more important aspect to be considered in the Kashmir issue is that just talking to the political executive is not enough, but the army, that is, the top military generals have to be involved in it. India-Pakistan policy is not being decided and dictated by the political executive but by the army. Army plays a very crucial role in framing Indian, Pakistani, American and Israeli policy. So it is important to involve the army in talks and also to take it into confidence.The ice between the countries has been broken, a very positive development and the hope is that it will continue.-As told to dnaThe author is a foreign policy analyst<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

Eco-sensitive zones to sink by 60% of Western Ghats?

If the states have their way, nearly 60% of the eco-sensitive, protected area of the Western Ghats, also known as water tower of peninsular India, will be thrown open for development and commercial projects. Five states located along the Western Ghats – Maharashtra, Karnataka, Goa, Gujarat and Kerala – have recommended to retain only 20,000 sq km as eco-sensitive area (ESA) and release the rest 36,285 sq.km for development. Among the six Western Ghats states, Tamil Nadu is yet to submit its recommendations on ESA areas to the Centre.A Central government appointed committee led by K Kasturirangan had recommended 56,825 sq km as ESA, nearly three times more than what the states have stated. The Centre too had notified 56,825 sq.km area as ESA in a draft notification in September this year. Western Ghats is one of the eight biodiversity hotspots in the world and is also a UNESCO world heritage site.In their detailed reports on ESAs, the states have rejected most findings and recommendations of the Kasturirangan report, pushing for opening the Ghats to development and commercial activities. The state governments were unhappy with the Kasturirangan report and thus the Central government had allowed them to physically verify their ESAs.The Kasturirangan report had identified ESAs on the basis of natural landscape and cultural landscape. The natural landscape comprises of natural vegetation, forests, water bodies, hills and sacred groves while cultural landscape comprises of human dominated land use of settlements, agricultural land, horticulture and other plantations.For example, the report had identified 4,156 villages across six states as ESA, but the five state governments, in their recommendations, demarcated only 1,666 villages. Each state government has shot down prohibitions suggested in the Kasturirangan report on issues such as mining, township development and forest plantations.An analysis of the state reports by dna shows that broadly they have vouched for inclusion of only contiguous forests that are already notified along with non-forest private lands areas while excluding plantations, industrial zones and even non-cultivable agricultural land.Gujarat, however, is the only state to have increased its ESA area.The ground reality, the states’ reports claim, is that most villages across Ghats rejected the ESA tag, as they feared for loss of livelihood. The reports say that villagers were victims of misinformation campaigns. The villagers, reports said, termed the concept of ESAs as ‘government land grab’.Speaking on the state reports, veteran ecologist Madhav Gadgil, who headed the first Central panel to have given a road-map for conservation of the Ghats, said, “The process states have followed to demarcate ESAs is more important than the area they have retained. It is a flawed process from several angles and most crucially, there is little people’s participation.”He added, “So called ground-truthing exercises involved gathering only select few groups of influential locals across villages. Also, I got first-hand reports of misinformation campaigns that were spread against the concept of ESAs.”While analysing the state reports, dna found each state government has used different approaches for giving ESA tag to villages. As per the Kasturirangan report, villages having more than 20% natural landscape were to be counted as ecologically sensitive. Maharashtra, which has the second largest ESA area has reduced the number of ESA villages from 2,154 to 1,254, reducing the protected area of Ghats to 6,719.3 sq.km.In Maharashtra, the government excluded a total of 879 villages for being isolated, distant from the contiguous, elevated range of the Ghats and for having less than 20% natural landscape. ESA villages that are home to industrial zones have been excluded without studying their pollution load on water resources.In Karnataka, the government thought it more ‘practical’ and ‘rational’ to count only those villages with 50% or more natural landscape and that already fall in the buffer zone of sanctuaries and national parks as ESAs. Karnataka has whittled down ESA villages to 153 from 1,553, shrinking the protected area to 2,020.01 sq.km.Once Tamil Nadu submits its report, MoEF&CC will deliberate on recommendations of all states and map ESA villages using satellite maps. The ministry is likely to meet representatives and MPs from each state before it takes a final call on how much area of the Ghats should be kept as ecologically sensitive.dna contacted Union minister for environment, forests and climate change Prakash Javadekar, who said the matter of finalising Western Ghats’ ESA is under process.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>

PM Modi’s Pakistan visit path-breaking departure from protocol-driven politics: BJP

“We had the Ufa statement which was focused on our primary concern that is terrorism. There were hiccups after that. Then we had the Bangkok talk. Our Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj visited Pakistan. “If the two countrioes can try to have a positive approach and work out a relationship that brings peace not only between them but to the entire region and therefore to the world, then that is something that should be welcomed,” he said.
