Gehlot counters BJP, to bring confidence motion in Assembly

Published

on

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who has won his first big political battle in the state after becoming the CM, will soon prove his government’s majority in the Assembly. After meeting with legislators, the CM has made it clear that he will bring a confidence motion.

Earlier, the BJP also announced to bring a no-confidence motion. It is believed that Gehlot will bring confidence motion and prove his majority on 14 August.

After coming back to the party fold, Sachin Pilot was on Thursday at the residence of Gehlot for participating in the meeting of Congress Legislature Party (CLP). In the presence of representatives of the high command, K.C. Venugopal and Avinash Pandey, Pilot shook hand with Gehlot, sporting smiles on his face.

On the other hand, the BJP legislature party meeting was also held. The centre of attraction of this meeting was former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. The BJP leadership felt relieved when all the legislators owing allegiance to Raje attended the meet. Since the anxiety was writ large in the BJP camp, three big leaders, including Narendra Singh Tomar, had been sent by the high command to oversee the meeting in Jaipur.

These leaders will submit their report to the BJP high command. BJP is definitely in for a shock after its “Mission Lotus” failed. The BJP wanted to topple the government and subsequently form its own. Secondly, its plan was also to get rid of Raje in Rajasthan’s politics. But Gehlot’s “ChankayaNiti” derailed all plans of the saffron party.

 Raje remained neutral in the entire episode, and Gehlot kept his house in order till the end. It so happened that at one point, the BJP was apprehensive about losing its legislators in the battle, so it started shifting some of them to Gujarat.

Even rebels relented and were left with no option but to be back to party. Sachin Pilot’s meeting with Rahul Gandhi was fixed only after green light from Jaipur. After return to the party, Pilot made certain statements that did not down well with the high command. MLAs of the Gehlot faction are said to have complained to the high command about the same. Sources say that the committee set up by high command to look into grievances will take time to prepare its report.

 It will talk to all the 125 MLAs, including independents. The panel will ascertain what the organisation did in the last one year and what was the role of Pilot and his MLAs over the last four months during the corona crisis. However, the Congress was united in the meeting today. Suspension of Vishvendra Singh and Bhanwarlal Sharma has been revoked. The BJP has decided to bring a no-confidence motion against the government. It will hold a meeting of MLAs at 9.30 am on Friday. At the same time, Gehlot has decided to bring a confidence motion. With 125 MLAs supporting the government, Ashok Gehlot is set to prove majority in the Assembly.

The brand has always been known for pioneering trends in its market and has been growing steadily.

“We have spent three generations representing authentic handlooms in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana and to the Indian diaspora. Our journey started in 1942, in the lanes of Vizag where our founder and my father, Appalaraju Kankatala sold handloom sarees on a bicycle. From the modest lanes of Vizag to the Capital of India, the 78 years’ journey has been marvellous. We are glad to launch our 13th exclusive retail outlet in Delhi.

The much-elated Chief Guest Karisma Kapoor said, “It is a pleasure for me to launch the very first store in North India of a brand which has a 78-year-old legacy behind it.

WANT TO INCREASE KIDS’ VEGETABLE INTAKE? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN DO IT

Published

on

Parents, take note! Filling half of a child’s plate with fruits and vegetables isn’t just recommended by the United States Dietary Guidelines, it also helps increase the amount of produce that kids end up eating, according to a new Penn State research.

The findings of the study were published in the ‘American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’. In the controlled feeding study, the researchers tested two strategies for encouraging kids to eat more fruits and vegetables.

The first was simply adding 50% more to fruit and vegetable side dishes at kids’ meals throughout the day. The second was substituting 50% more fruits and vegetables for an equivalent weight of the other foods. For example, if they added 50g veggies to the lunch meal, they also subtracted 50g mac and cheese.

The researchers found that adding more fruit and vegetable side dishes resulted in the kids eating 24% more veggies and 33% more fruit compared to the control menus. Substituting fruits and veggies for some of the other foods resulted in kids consuming 41% more veggies and 38% more fruit.

Barbara Rolls, Helen A. Guthrie Chair and director of the Laboratory for the Study of Human Ingestive Behavior at Penn State, said the findings suggest ways parents, caregivers and schools can help encourage healthy eating.

“When deciding what to feed kids, it’s easy to remember that half of the food should be fruits and vegetables,” said Rolls. “If you start seeing that you’re serving too much and have more waste, you could cut back the higher calorie-dense food while adding more produce. Experiment and have some fun trying different fruits and vegetables to see what they like and so you can serve meals with a sensitivity to their personal taste.”

“For most foods, kids will eat more when served larger portions, so we wanted to test whether increasing the number of fruits and vegetables that are served over five days would increase intake,” said Liane Roe, a research nutritionist at Penn State. “We also wondered whether substituting produce for other foods would increase intake more than simply adding extra fruits and veggies.”

For the study, the researchers recruited 53 children between the ages of three and five who were enrolled in Pennsylvania childcare centres. Each participant was served all their meals and snacks for five days during three different periods in random order. For the control period, they were served meals they typically got in their childcare centre, and for the period testing the addition strategy, the portions of fruits and vegetables were increased by 50%. For the period testing the substitution strategy, fruits and vegetables were increased by 50% and the other foods were reduced by an equivalent weight.

“We served the children all of their meals, snacks, and beverages for five consecutive days, and we weighed all the items we served, as well as the leftovers, to measure intake,” said Roe. “We sent home evening and morning snacks for the kids, but the majority of the meals were served in the childcare centre.”

As a caution, Rolls said that even though the study was successful in getting kids to eat more fruits and vegetables, the majority of the kids still didn’t eat the recommended daily amount of vegetables for their age group—about a cup and a half—although they did reach this target for fruits.

The researchers said that in addition to the strategies in the current study, there are additional things parents and caregivers can do to increase intake. “Serving fruits and vegetables as a first course or snacks when kids are hungry can boost their intake, as can incorporating them into mixed dishes,” said Rolls. “For example, you can blend some cauliflower or squash into a sauce for mac and cheese or add fruit puree into a brownie or cake mix. You don’t decrease the palatability of the dish, but the kids are eating more produce. You should also encourage them to eat the whole veggies on their own, as well as incorporating them into other foods.” The National Institutes of Health helped support this research.
