TN for entertainment tax on Champions League 20-20

Posted on 30 April 2013 by admin

Chennai, Apr 30 (UNI) After bringing popular cricketing tournament Indian Premier League under the Entertainment Tax regime, Tamil Nadu government today proposed to levy the tax on another Twenty20 series, the Champions League.

Commercial Taxes and Registration Minister BV Ramanaa moved a bill in the state Assembly to further amend the Tamil Nadu Entertainments Tax Act, 1939 for this purpose.

Ramanaa said the Champions League Twenty 20 cricket tournament was played among the top domestic teams from major cricketing nations and in India the BCCI was conducting matches for this tournament.

The Government has now proposed to include Champions League Twenty20 cricket tournament also within the definition of the term “entertainment” and to levy entertainment tax under the said Tamil Nadu Act X of 1939, he said.

It has therefore been decided to amend the Tamil Nadu Entertainment Act, 1939 (Tamil Nadu Act X of 1939) suitably for the purpose, he said.

He recalled that government had made amendments to the same Act in 2011 to bring the levy entertainment tax on IPL.

Held in South Africa last year, Champions Trophy returns to India this year, with BCCI scheduling the tournament from September 17-October 6.

Musharraf sent to judicial custody for 14 days in Bhutto case

Posted on 30 April 2013 by admin

Islamabad, Apr 30 (UNI) Pakistan’s former military ruler Gen Pervez Musharraf will spend the election day under house arrest with an anti-terrorism court today sending him to judicial custody for a fortnight in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case in 2007.

Musharraf was not presented before the judge for today’s hearing for security reasons, said chief prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali of the Federal Investigation Agency.

Though Musharraf was remanded to judicial custody for 14 days, the 69-year-old former military strongman will continue to be restricted to his plush farmhouse at Chak Shahzad on the outskirts of Islamabad, which has been declared a “sub-jail”.

The court fixed the next hearing on May 14, three days after the May 11 elections for which he returned to Pakistan last month, ending his four-year long self-imposed exile.

Pakistani authorities have already disqualified him from contesting the election, effectively putting an end to his ambitions for a political comeback.

At the last hearing on April 26, Musharraf had been remanded to the physical custody of the FIA for four days so that he could be questioned by investigators probing Bhutto’s assassination.

Referring to the FIA’s decision not to produce Musharraf in court today, chief prosecutor Ali told reporters that the Interior Ministry has issued an order which said that the former President “faces the highest level of security threat”.

“Due to this very reason, he was not presented in court but he was sent on judicial remand,” he said.

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan had announced it had formed a special squad of suicide bombers and snipers to target him.

A car rigged with a huge amount of explosives was recently found near Musharraf’s farmhouse.

The intelligence agencies have issued an advisory that the Taliban might attempt to abduct the former president.

Coal scam: Left parties want PM to face Parliament

Posted on 30 April 2013 by admin

New Delhi, Apr 30 (UNI) Left parties today termed as “meaningless” the demand for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation over the coal allocation issue but asked him to face Parliament as he “owes an answer” to the country.

CPI(M) also dubbed the disruption of Parliament as “match fixing” between BJP and Congress.

“Demanding resignation of the government is meaningless and it does not happen,” CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury told reporters outside Parliament.

“On the garb of PM’s resignation demand, you are allowing the government a free hand to do what ever they want. This is one kind of match fixing between BJP and the Congress,” he said.

“Parliament is not functioning, no debate is taking place and there no accountability. A match fixing is going on which is helping the government to avoid debate. We want the government to be accountable to Parliament,” he said.

CPI National Secretary D Raja said the Supreme Court has passed “really strong strictures” against the government on the working of the CBI while Forward Bloc Secretary G Deverajan said no other Prime Minister has faced such criticism from the apex court.

However, both the leaders said the Left parties were not seeking Singh’s resignation as they wanted to listen to the Prime Minister who should own moral responsibility for the developments.

“The observations of the Supreme Court are strong. Now the Supreme Court observations show that what we were saying were right. Singh should own moral responsibility. Its not the Law Minister alone who is responsible.

“The Prime Minister should own up responsibility and face Parliament. Now the continuation of the Law Minister has become untenable,” Raja said.

Deverajan said the Prime Minister owes an explanation as he was in-charge of the Coal ministry at the time of the scam.

Yechury said, “Observations made by the SC have only vindicated what we are saying all along that the CBI is becoming a political arm of the government of the day and that is not in the interest of the country. We are for independent panel of advocates for CBI.”

Pak officials dismiss report about sending Sarabjit abroad

Posted on 29 April 2013 by admin

Lahore/Islamabad, Apr 29 (UNI) Pakistan today said that the “best possible care” is being given to Indian death row convict Sarabjit Singh – comatose in a Lahore hospital after a brutal assault – and that there are no plans to move him.

They dismissed a report that a medical board was considering a proposal to send Sarabjit abroad.

Sarabjit, 49, is being provided the best possible care in a Lahore hospital, and there are no plans to move him, Information Minister Arif Nizami said.

Nizami, a key member of the caretaker government, told PTI that Sarabjit “would continue” to be treated at Jinnah hospital in Lahore and there are no plans to move him.

“The best possible care is being provided to Sarabjit”, he said on the sidelines of an official event in Islamabad.

The caretaker govt has also taken steps to provide consular access to Sarabjit for Indian officials, he said.

Meanwhile, officials said the four-member medical board headed by Jinnah Hospital chief executive Mahmood Shaukat conducted a routine examination of Sarabjit this morning, officials said.

They rejected a media report that the board was mulling a proposal to send Sarabjit abroad for treatment.

“No such proposal has been under consideration,” an official of the health department of Punjab province told PTI.

“In fact, the medical board has no mandate (to decide about sending Sarabjit abroad),” said the official, who did not want to be named as he was not authorised to speak to the media.

The medical board is “minutely monitoring the patient” and Sarabjit is being given the “best treatment” at Jinnah Hospital, the official said.

Sources in the hospital told PTI that there had been “no improvement whatsoever” in Sarabjit’s condition. .

New Delhi, Apr 29 (UNI) For the sixth straight day, Parliament could not function properly today because of ruckus created by Opposition which was demanding resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over coal block allocation issue and CBI affidavit on it.

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha saw uproar as soon as they met for the day, forcing their adjournment till noon, then till 2 PM and finally for the day.

As soon as Lok Sabha assembled in the morning, BJP members led by Ganesh Singh and Sanjay Jaiswal trooped into the Well shouting slogans: “pradhan mantri isteefa do (Prime Minister resign)” and “koyele ki dalali hai, poori Congress kali hai (Congress is tainted in coal scam)”.

SP member Shailendra Kumar raised the issue of incursion by Chinese troops in Ladakh. “China is capturing the whole country,” he said, prompting his party members to troop into into the Well to protest on the issue.

“The country is in grave danger,” Saroj Toofani (SP) said amid din, while his party colleague Neeraj Shekhar shouted that Chinese troops were well inside the Indian territory.

Congress members from Telangana region held placards demanding formation of a separate state. They stood in the aisle.

As the din continued, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House till noon.

Similar scenes were witnessed when the House re-assembled with BJP members resuming slogan-shouting.

In the din, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav voiced concern over the Chinese troops intruding up to 19 km in Ladakh region and targeted the government for not dealing with it properly.

The former Defence Minister, whose party is extending crucial support to the UPA, accused the government of behaving in a “cowardly and incompetent” manner and said it was “good for nothing”. .

India is very lucky to have MS Dhoni: Moody

Posted on 26 April 2013 by admin

Chennai, Apr 26 (UNI) Awestruck by Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s swashbuckling knock against his side, former Australia all-rounder and Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody says India is “very lucky” to have the 31-year-old “special” cricketer as captain.

“Dhoni is special. It is as simple as that. In any form of the game he performs remarkably. He is a very special cricketer and a very special leader. Chennai and India are very lucky to have him,” Moody said.

It was Dhoni’s blazing half-century that guided Chennai to a win over Hyderabad in a tense IPL match here last night.

Moody said they fell 10-15 runs short of setting up what, according to him, would have been a match-winning total.

“I think we were ten or fifteen runs short of what we should have scored,” Moody said after his team’s last-over defeat.

“After the loss of early wickets we managed to build momentum at the back end with some good batting by Shikhar Dhawan and Ashish Reddy. We may have made a bit of ground but we lost early wickets.

“In T-20 cricket if you lose early wickets it is hard to get the total that you would like to get,” the Aussie added.

Moody was however pleased with the way his boys fought and said they showed a lot of character.

“The pluses are that we fought very hard. We showed the characteristics of a side that is prepared to fight right down to the last ball. I am very proud that each of the players stuck in the game and they fought and stayed in the contest.

“We showed to a lot of people that we are a side that has got character and prepared to fight regardless of the big names that Chennai have.”

Taliban plans to kidnap Mush: Pak spy agencies

Posted on 26 April 2013 by admin

Islamabad, Apr 26 (UNI) Pakistani intelligence agencies have warned that the Taliban have made plans to kidnap former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, who is currently being held at his private residence here after being arrested in several criminal cases.

The intelligence agencies have issued an advisory that the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan might attempt to abduct Musharraf while he is being taken from his farmhouse to court, Geo News channel reported today.

The channel quoted its sources as saying that the Taliban was working with other jihadi groups to kidnap Musharraf.

The intelligence agencies directed security agencies to ensure strict surveillance and tight security to foil the plans of the militants, the report said.

Shortly after Musharraf returned to Pakistan from self- exile last month, the Taliban announced that they had formed a special squad of suicide bombers and snipers to target him.

A car rigged with a huge amount of explosives was recently found near Musharraf’s farmhouse on the outskirts of Islamabad, which was declared a “sub-jail” after he was arrested last week when a court revoked his bail in a case over the detention of dozens of judges during the 2007 emergency.

Yesterday, Musharraf was formally arrested by the Federal Investigation Agency in the 2007 assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto.

Musharraf has been accused of failing to provide adequate security to Bhutto, who was killed by a suicide bomber after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi.

Musharraf returned to Pakistan last month after nearly four years of self-exile, promising to “save” the country from economic ruin and militancy.

However, he was barred from running in the May 11 general election, which will mark the first democratic transition of power in Pakistan’s history.

He is facing several serious criminal cases.

Lawyers have petitioned the Supreme Court to put him on trial for treason for imposing emergency in 2007 and he faces charges over the death of Baloch leader Akbar Bugti in a 2006 military operation.
