MAHARASHTRA MINISTER QUITS, BJP ALLEGES HE’S LINKED TO TIKTOK STAR’S SUICIDE CASE
The Bharatiya Janata Party had demanded Forest Minister Sanjay Rathod’s resignation, even as he denied anything to do with 23-year-old Pooja Chavan’s death.
Amid the demand for the ouster of Maharashtra Forest Minister Sanjay Rathod over his name being linked to the death of a 23-year-old woman, the Shiv Sena leader on Sunday tendered his resignation from the post.
“I’ve given my resignation to CM Uddhav Thackeray. The way opposition is warning that they won’t allow Assembly session to function, I’ve distanced myself from it. I want a fair probe in case (in connection with the death of a woman in Pune earlier this month),” Rathod told reporters.
Earlier, the Opposition, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), had demanded Rathod’s resignation, even as the minister has denied that he had anything to do with her death.
The 23-year-old woman had died after falling from a building on 8 February, and Pune Police had said that they were probing the suicide angle. Some audio clips had gone viral after her death. However, soon after, many audio tapes allegedly linked to TikTok star Pooja Chavan’s death, alluding to the involvement of the state minister, went viral on social media. In one such audio clip, one person is heard making some suggestions to suppress a case. The person also issued instructions in Marathi to take possession of laptops and mobiles phones and the ‘issue’ should not be escalated.
Responding to the Opposition’s demand of a case against the minister, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said an FIR (First Information Report) can’t be registered before investigation.
“Our job is to behave properly and just. But politics has been dirty for the past few days. Investigation has to happen, and we believe it should be fair. But during investigation, destroying someone should not be the aim,” he said at a press conference.
Further, some social media posts claimed that Pooja Chavan was in a relationship with the Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Rathod. In Rathod’s defence, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut earlier on Sunday said that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will not take any decision under pressure. “Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will not take any decision under pressure. To keep anyone in the cabinet or not is the CM’s prerogative,” Raut said.
The Rajya Sabha member also accused Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari of indulging in politics. The BJP has already announced that it would not let the budget session of the state legislature run smoothly if Rathod does not step down before March 1. The session is scheduled to start from Monday.
The BJP had been demanding his resignation from the post. “Minister with serious allegations in Pooja Chavan suicide case should resign! The BJP protested against this by burning a statue of Sanjay Rathore in Beed district,” BJP Maharashtra tweeted last week.
Former Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had also hit out at the state government over the death. “There is ample evidence against Sanjay Rathod but nothing is happening. If media reports had not come out, nothing would have happened. Are we heading towards a banana republic? The police are under pressure. First, there has to be an investigation on the police itself,” he said last week.

MUMBAI : Ayushmann Khurrana credits his films ‘Vicky Donor’ and ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ for triggering his journey to stardom. “The success of ‘Vicky Donor’ and then ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ told me that the audience wanted to have a different experience in the theatre and that their taste was changing.

Study: Late-childhood obesity linked with low-quality maternal diet during pregnancy
Dublin [Ireland], February 28 (ANI): A study led by researchers at University College Dublin, Ireland found that children of mothers who ate a higher quality diet, low in inflammation-associated foods, during pregnancy had a lower risk of obesity and lower body fat levels in late-childhood than children whose mothers ate a lower quality diet, high in inflammation-associated foods, while pregnant.
The findings were published in the open-access journal BMC Medicine. This association was not observed in early or mid-childhood.
Ling-Wei Chen, the corresponding author said: “Obesity in childhood often carries on into adulthood and is associated with a higher risk of chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes.
Mounting evidence suggests that maternal diet influences pregnancy and birth outcomes and points to the first one thousand days of a child’s life, from conception to two years old, as a critical period for preventing childhood obesity.
Our research indicates that children born to mothers who eat a low-quality diet, high in inflammation-associated foods, during pregnancy may be more likely to have obesity or excess body fat in late childhood than those born to mothers who eat a high-quality diet low in inflammation-associated foods.”
To examine the effects of maternal diet on the likelihood of childhood obesity and excess body fat, the authors analysed data collected from 16,295 mother-child pairs in seven European birth cohort studies, from Ireland, France, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Poland, which are involved in the ALPHABET consortium. On average, mothers were 30 years old and had a healthy BMI. Mothers reported the food they ate before and during pregnancy.
The researchers assessed dietary quality and whether diets were high in foods and food components associated with chronic inflammation, such as saturated fat, refined carbohydrates and red and processed meat. Children’s BMI was calculated in early, mid and late childhood. Additional data on children’s body composition during mid or late childhood was collected in five of the cohorts included in the study.
The researchers found that children born to mothers who ate diets high in foods associated with inflammation throughout pregnancy tended to have lower levels of fat-free body mass, indicating lower levels of muscle mass, in late-childhood than those whose mothers ate diets low in inflammation-associated foods. Previous research has found that low levels of muscle mass may be associated with a higher risk of combined diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
An association between a lower quality maternal diet, high in inflammation-associated foods, and lower levels of fat-free body mass in late-childhood was found to be stronger in boys than in girls. An association between lower quality maternal diet, high in inflammation-associated foods, and higher body fat levels in mid-childhood was stronger in girls than in boys.
Catherine Phillips, the principal investigator and coordinator of the ALPHABET project said: “Previous research has suggested that lower maternal carbohydrate intake in early pregnancy can induce epigenetic changes – that is changes which alter gene expression – in children that may be associated with an increased risk of obesity.
We propose that a lower quality maternal diet, high in inflammation-associated foods, may similarly induce epigenetic changes and that this may increase the risk of children having obesity or excess body fat in later childhood.
Our findings suggest that promoting an overall healthy diet, high in fruit and vegetables and low in refined carbohydrates and red and processed meats, throughout pregnancy may help prevent childhood obesity.”
The authors caution that the observational nature of the study does not allow for conclusions about a causal relationship between maternal diet and childhood obesity and excess body fat. Future research should account in more detail for other factors that could influence the risk of obesity in childhood, such as childhood physical activity and diet, according to the authors. (ANI)
