‘ John Kerry to visit Pakistan in next 2 days”

Posted on 26 July 2013 by admin

Islamabad, Jul 26 (UNI) With Secretary of State John Kerry set to visit Pakistan in the next two days, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today committed himself to cooperative ties with the US and all initiatives to promote peace in war-torn Afghanistan.

Sharif made the remarks during a meeting with US Ambassador Richard Olson in advance of the trip by Kerry, who is “likely to visit Pakistan in the coming two days”, said a statement from the premier’s office.

The premier told Olson of “his commitment to a strong and cooperative relationship with the US”. Sharif reiterated Pakistans “full commitment to all initiatives designed to promote peace and stability in Afghanistan”.

Sharif said he looked forward to receiving Kerry and sharing views on bilateral ties. He said he would “share a vision of bilateral relations in the future”.

The premier also briefed the US envoy of the recent visit to Kabul by his Advisor on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz.

Aziz handed over Sharif’s formal invitation to Afghan President Hamid Karzai to visit Pakistan for a summit-level meeting.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office described Aziz’s interactions with his Afghan interlocutors as “warm and cordial” but Kabul subsequently announced Karzai would visit Islamabad only if there is a specified agenda for talks, including a “serious and effective campaign against terrorism”.

Ambassador Olson told the Prime Minister about “US priorities” related to Kerry’s visit and briefed him on bilateral relations and the regional situation.

Kerry was originally scheduled to travel to Pakistan last month but deferred his visit because of the worsening crisis in Syria. He will be the senior most US official to visit Pakistan since Nawaz Sharif was sworn in as Prime Minister after the May 11 general election.

The US is looking to Pakistan to play a key role in the withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan in 2014 but the two sides have been unable to reach common ground on involving the Afghan Taliban in peace negotiations.

Scientific methods should be used for conserving water: Hooda

Posted on 26 July 2013 by admin

Gurgaon, July 26 (UNI) Underscoring the importance of water conservation, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today emphasised on a scientific approach to the efforts in preserving the precious natural resource.

The Chief Minister was speaking after inaugurating the Centre of Excellence of Central Board of Irrigation and Power (CBIP) here.

Hooda noted that the aim of water conservation will remain a distant dream unless modern methods of irrigation like drip irrigation, sprinkler irrigation etc are adopted.

In Haryana, there is need of 36 million acre feet of water, whereas only 14 million acre feet is available. On top of that, 40 per cent of the ground water is brackish, the Chief Minister noted.

Emphasising on the need for a balance between competitive uses of water and environmental concerns, Hooda stressed that for sustainability of natural streams, use of the conservation technologies is necessary.

He also suggested formation of a national fund to promote research and development of technology-driven methods for water conservation.

The Chief Minister also suggested for water efficient buildings, on the lines of energy efficient buildings.

Listing out state government’s achievements on the electricity front, Hooda said in past 8 years, the installed generation capacity of the state has gone up from 1,587 MW to 5,300 MW.

Cronje’s father threatens legal action against police

Posted on 25 July 2013 by admin

Johannesburg, Jul 25 (UNI) Ewie Cronje, father of deceased former South African captain Hansie Cronje, has threatened legal action against the Indian police for filing a charge sheet which implicates his son in the 2000 match-fixing scandal.

The Indian authorities have brought charges against Cronje and five international bookmakers 13 years after the scandal that rocked the international cricket fraternity.

But a New Delhi court has ruled that charges against Cronje should be dropped because he died in a plane crash in 2002.

However, the original charge sheet alleges that Cronje received more than Rs 12 million in two payments from bookmaker Sanjeev Chawla but Cronje senior said Hansie had received less than a quarter of that amount.

“It’s nonsense. Where is the money?” Cronje told the Afrikaans daily ‘Beeld’ here.

“I’m considering legal action against the Indian police,” he added.

He said he plans to move court because the Indian police had known since 1981 that match-fixing was occurring, but did nothing about it.

“Then they made Hansie the scapegoat,” he said.

Cronje initially denied being involved in match-fixing, even convincing his then boss and South African cricket supremo Ali Bacher to dismiss the allegations by the Indian authorities.

Within days, Bacher announced Cronje’s suspension even as the South African government instituted the King Commission of Inquiry to investigate the allegations following a confession by Cronje.

The Commission ended inconclusively but Cronje was subsequently banned for life from cricket at all levels.

US clamps down on sale of ‘natural’ diabetes drugs from India

Posted on 25 July 2013 by admin

Washington, Jul 25 (UNI) In a major crackdown on illegal sale of India-originating drugs labelled as ‘natural’ cure for diabetes, the US health regulator FDA has initiated action against 15 companies, including a Gujarat-based drugmaker, for supply of such products.

In separate ‘warning letters’ issued to Surat-based Amrutam Life Care and 14 other companies, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said they have been found to be selling illegal drugs labelled as medicines, dietary supplements and ayurvedic products for diabetes treatment.

Most of these companies have been selling ‘India-originating’ treatments for diabetes, while at least two of them have suppliers or associate companies in India, as per the letters.

In a separate statement, the FDA said these illegally sold products include “dietary supplements and ayurvedic products — medicine of the healing arts that originated in India — with claims to treat, cure, and/or prevent diabetes”.

FDA, which has been taking action against many Indian pharmaceutical companies for either deficiencies in their products or at manufacturing facilities, told Amrutam that there might be other violations as well in its products.

India is the second largest drug exporter to the US and Indian drugmakers have a significant presence there. Those having faced FDA action in recent times include Wockhardt, Fresenius Kabi, Ranbaxy, Sun Pharma, Cadilla, Aurobindo Pharma, RPG Life Science, Dabur and Glenmark.

Amrutam has also been told by the US regulator to review all the information put out on its website, blogs, Facebook, Google+ posts and other promotional materials to ensure that the claims do not violate American rules.

Amrutam was selling products like ‘Zoom-Zooma-Zoom’, Arexi, Diexi and Obexi in the US in the online mode, but the FDA’s laboratory tests found them to be “unapproved” drugs with undeclared ingredients.

Teachers should teach, not supervise cooking of meals: HC;

Posted on 25 July 2013 by admin

Allahabad/Patna, July 25 (UNI) The duty of school teachers and principals is to teach students and not to supervise cooking of meals, the Allahabad High Court has observed, close on the heels of Bihar mid-day meal tragedy.

The observation by the court in Uttar Pradesh came even as three lakh primary school teachers across Bihar boycotted midday meal duties today on the grounds they interfered with teaching work.

“The duty of teachers and principals of schools is to teach the students and not to supervise the cooking of meals,” a division bench comprising Justice Shiva Kirti Singh and Justice Vikram Nath observed yesterday amid questions whether teaching staff at government schools should be saddled with the implementation of the scheme.

The court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation(PIL) filed by Meerut-based UP Pradhanacharya Parishad.

The PIL had challenged an order of the District Inspector of Schools, dated June 19, whereby the earlier system of NGOs being entrusted with preparing mid-day meals was scrapped and principals were directed to get the food prepared in their respective schools under their personal supervision.

The petitioners had contended that the new system would interfere with the duties of teachers in Meerut and pointed out that NGOs were taking care of mid-day meals in a number of neighbouring districts.

Expressing surprise over the submission, the court said, “There must be uniformity across the state with regard to who shall be entrusted with a specific task like preparing mid-day meals”.

Directing the state government to submit its policy with regard to mid-day meals by the next date of hearing on August 5, the court ordered that in Meerut, the previous system (of NGOs preparing mid-day meals) would continue until further orders.

23 children died in Bihar after taking poisoned food during a mid-day meal.

In Bihar, Primary teachers began boycott of mid-day meal duties as announced even as the state government said it would inform the Supreme Court, at the directive of which the scheme was being implemented..

Zimbabwe-bound Indian squad is strong: Virat Kohli

Posted on 20 July 2013 by admin

Mumbai, Jul 20 (UNI) The Indian team for the upcoming ODI series in Zimbabwe is missing some key players, including inspirational captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who have been rested, but skipper for the tour Virat Kohli today described the squad as a strong one.

“I don’t think experience matters, especially in limited overs game. You need 11 players, who are hungry for success, who are hardworking and whose vision is team victory. All 15 players are strong and it is a strong unit, which is good,” said Kohli at a promotional event here for Mattel Toys.

India are to play against Zimbabwe in a five-match series from July 24 to August 3. The squad is without Dhoni, R Ashwin, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma.

Kohli said if the team performs in a manner similar to its display over the last month-and-a-half, then it will be good for Indian cricket.

“I can’t guarantee. If we continue this way, it will be a good time for Indian cricket. A lot of things that would make people happy,” he said.

The team, led by Dhoni, first lifted the ICC Champions Trophy in England and then clinched the tri-series in the West Indies, in which Sri Lanka was the third outfit.

The 24-year-old, who has played 108 ODIs and also featured in the 2011 World Cup winning squad led by Dhoni, said he liked to lead from the front and set an example to others.

“I always like to lead from the front and set an example for whoever is playing with me or around me. I like taking responsibilities. That is a natural thing for me,” he said.

Kohli, who has been made the face of superhero toy Max Steel, said he aimed to be fearless.

“The best quality is to not be afraid of anything. Even if you have seniors or players with lot more experience in your team, you need to have confidence in your ability and think you can lead them. It is important you set an example with your performance quickly and then you gain respect.

“If the respect is mutual between players and captain then the side is successful. It comes from performance and when you win matches for the team, that inspiration spreads in the team,” he said.

Washington, Jul 20 (UNI) Joe Biden will embark on his maiden visit to India as US Vice President on Monday to discuss key bilateral issues, including trade, energy and defence, to make Indo-US ties the most important strategic partnership of the 21st century.

President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Biden, accompanied by his wife Jill would arrive in New Delhi on July 22, would focus on four key issues of economic and trade ties, energy and climate change; defense co-operation and a wide range of regional co-operation.

Biden, 70, had visited New Delhi in 2008 as a Senator.

He will also hold talks with Vice President Hamid Ansari and the Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj.

Biden, who wanted to travel to India in the first term itself, would begin his trip with a visit to the Gandhi Smriti Museum to show his respect to the Father of the Nation.

All his meetings have been scheduled for July 23, at the end of which he would attend a dinner hosted in his honour by Ansari.

New Delhi, July 20 (UNI) Former Union Minister Khurshed Alam Khan, father of External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, passed away due to a heart ailment early in the morning today at a city hospital. He was 95.

Condoling his death, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that India had lost a true son and servant of the nation.

Sources close to Khurshid said that Khan was admitted in Escorts Heart Hospital five-six days back after he complained of chest pain.

Dr TS Kler, the executive director of the cardiac sciences department at the hospital, said that Khan was admitted with fever and chest infection.

“But he already had a major problem of Aortic Stenosis (AS), which is a disease of the heart valves. He (breathed his last) at around 3 A.M. today,” Kler said.

The Prime Minister said Khan had served the nation with distinction throughout his life and in many capacities. His death was an “irreparable loss”.

“His leadership in India’s foreign policy, education system and legislative affairs contributed immensely to the country’s modern, liberal and democratic polity.

“His commitment to the nation was deeply rooted in the abiding values of our Constitution and the idea of an India envisioned by our founding fathers,” the Prime Minister added.

Khan was governor of Karnataka from 1991 to 1999 and before that, governor of Goa from 1989 to 1991.

Prior to that, he served as the Union minister of External Affairs.
