8K SQ KM OF BASTAR LIBERATED FROM CPI MAOISTS: IG BASTAR

Published

on

BASTAR: More than 8,000 square kilometres area of Bastar, one of the worst Naxal-hit region in the country, has now been freed from the clutches of CPI Maoists in recent years, said Inspector General of Bastar P. Sundarraj on Tuesday.

Sundarraj said this was possible due to more than 24 security camps established in these areas followed by development works initiated by the local administrations.

“In last few years due to the multi-pronged development and security strategy of the government, the security forces and local administration have made inroads into the erstwhile stronghold areas of Left Wing Extremists in Dandakaranya area,” Sundarraj said.

“The well thought out strategy by the government is yielding tremendous positive outcomes and in the last couple of years, more than 8,000 sq km area of Bastar region have been liberated from the clutches of CPI Maoists. This was primarily possible due to more than 24 security camps established in these areas followed by development works initiated by the local administrations,” the IG said.

Sundarraj said the road networks and bridges being constructed with the help of these security camps in Minapa, Tarrem, Galgam, Dharmawaram, Bodli, Kademeta, Koleng, Sonpur, Kohkametta, Kamdeta, Katgaon, Fundri and Potali have opened up the doors for the local tribal population to the outside world.

“CPI Maoist general secretary Basavaraju and his gang very well knew that once the tribal youth from the Dandakaranya gets connected to the outside world, the hollow and false propaganda being carried out by Naxals against the institutions and establishments of the legitimate democratic governments would get exposed,” he said.

Sundarraj further said that the fear of being exposed and getting extinct is stimulating the Maoist leadership to unleash cruelty and terror against the local population in order to confine them to the dark world, which they were trying to manage for the last four decades.ANI

SINGHU BORDER INCIDENT CONSPIRACY OF THE GOVERNMENT, ALLEGES RAKESH TIKAIT

Published

on

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Sunday said that the Singhu border incident was a “religious matter” and alleged that “the government was behind the act of spoiling the atmosphere near the border.”

He stated that the government should not link the Singhu Border incident with the farmers’ protest. Speaking to ANI, Tikait alleged that the Singhu border incident was a conspiracy of the governments and said that the government can deteriorate the situation at the border at any time.

“Nihangs said it’s a religious matter and the Government should not link it to farmers’ protest. We’re talking to them and telling them that they are not needed here as of now. Government can deteriorate the situation,” said Tikait.

He further questioned the intelligence of the Central government and alleged that the government already knew about the incident since it was behind the execution of the incident.

“Delhi Police guards the barricades where the incident happened. The intelligence lives there at the border, did they not know about the incident? This shows that the incident was known to all and it was executed by the government,” said the spokesperson.

Earlier on Saturday, two Nihangs were detained by Haryana Police in connection with the Singhu Border incident where a mutilated body was found hanging at the site of farmers’ protest.

An accused in the Singhu border incident was sent to seven days of police custody by the court on Saturday.

The accused has been identified by the police as Sarvajeet Singh who was earlier detained from Kundli in Sonipat on Friday evening.

The second accused in the Singhu Border incident was arrested by Amritsar Rural Police on Saturday outside a Gurudwara in Rakh Devidass Pura, Amarkot village, Punjab.

The accused has been identified as Narayan Singh.

ALL FACTIONS COME UP WITH MULTIPLE STRATEGIES TO SURVIVE ELLENABAD BYPOLL BATTLE

Published

on

With two weeks left in the forthcoming by-election, the stalwarts of all factions are on the toes to make the party’s contestant to win the battle. All the factions contesting the election have come up with different strategies to emerge as the winner in this multi-cornered battle.

In this series, Kumari Seleja, the Congress state president, is leading the concussing campaign herself, eyeing every step of the opposite factions. While reacting to the party’s stand regarding the election, Kumari Selaja said that the Congress continues to take lead on contestants of other factions. She also took a dig at the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) and the INLD (Indian National Lok Dal) saying that both are the sides of the same coin as both are fooling the voters.

The BJP-JJP (Bharatiya Janata Party-Jannayak Janata Party) government left no stone unturned to put the farmers in a state of disparity. She also took on INLD candidate Abhay Singh Chautala stating that Abhay resigned from the post of MLA earlier saying that he would not enter the assembly until the government does not withdraw the three contentious agricultural laws. But the scenario remains unchanged and he is contesting the election against which does not make any sense as he could not succeed in keeping his words.

Pawan Beniwal who had fought the previous assembly election on the BJP, has been fielded in by poll by the Congress now. To some extent, the party succeeded in controlling the infighting among its senior leaders ahead of the election which is relieving for the party contestant. Besides, his uncle Bharat Beniwal also came up in his support saying that he will put his best in terms of canvassing as earlier he was reported being upset with the party after he was denied a ticket. It is pertinent to mention that Bharat Beniwal had contested the last election against his nephew Pawan Beniwal. The state Congress president Kumari Seleja continues to canvas for the party candidate.

The ruling BJP has come with a micro-management formula to survive the election and under the same, the party head in each village falling in the assembly area has been assigned the duty to woo the voters in support of the party candidate.

According to the information made available by the party, the BJP contestant Govind Kanda has conducted public meetings in more than two dozen villages so far so that the party can take maximum lead. In four blocks of the seat, the legislators and the appointed chairman in different departments along with the booth workers have been fielded in the ground for canvassing.

In this series, a couple of meetings of the cabinet ministers and the legislators will be held to decide the further strategy and strengthen the election campaign after 20 October, 2021. Besides, the Chief Minister’s program will take place after the above said period and the senior leaders continue to mull over every possible plan to win the elections.INLD which survived the seat in last assembly elections, dominates the seat so far as the party contestant Abhay Singh Chautala succeeded in winning the seat back-to-back for thrice. OP Chautala, the INLD supremo, has come up himself to get his son victory and continues to visit the villages falling the assembly appealing the voters to cast their votes in favour of the party.

FIRST-EVER SHIP-TO-SHIP OPERATION OF LPG UNDERTAKEN AT KOLKATA’S SYAMA PRASAD MOOKERJEE PORT

Published

on

The first-ever ship-to-ship (STS) transfer operation of LPG in the Indian Coast was undertaken by the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) on Saturday, stated the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways on Sunday.

According to the ministry, BPCL engaged service provider M/s Fendercare Marine to render the services at the offshore STS location. The restricted draft in the river channel necessitates offloading of part cargo at neighbouring ports before calling at Haldia Dock Complex (HDC) or Kolkata Dock System (KDS) of Syama Prasad Mookerjee Port Kolkata (erstwhile Kolkata Port Trust). Consequent to two-port discharge, vessels incur dead freight and additional steaming time, said the Ministry.

It further stated that to obviate the inherent channel constraints, Syama Prasad Mookerjee Port Kolkata (SMP Kolkata) has endeavoured to open up opportunities for importers to bring in Cape Size or Baby Cape vessels at the deep drafted anchorages located at Sagar, Sandheads and X Point and enable handling of fully laden dry bulk vessels through the deployment of Floating Cranes or ship cranes.

Over the years a good number of dry bulk vessels have been handled at the lighterage points, said the ministry, adding that due to the strategically advantageous location, HDC has witnessed incremental demand from trade in terms of catering to LPG, imported POL products and other liquid cargo.

Several discussions with the senior management of the Oil Manufacturing Companies like BPCL, IOCL, HPCL and other leading private importers of LPG and other liquid products pointed to the intrinsic benefits that can be harnessed through extending the facility of Ship-to-Ship Transfer (STS) of LPG/ Liquid Cargo at the Deep drafted anchorage points of SMP, Kolkata, said the ministry.
