June 24: The label of "cow-eater" has become in India what the Star of David was to Germany during the Holocaust: reason enough to segregate and kill. But multiple accounts suggest the train compartment became a microcosm of a country where dietary habits and symbols of religious identity can become life-threatening factors. Down the line from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, few ministers or BJP leaders chose to mention, let alone condemn, the murder. READ MY FACE Reuters picture shows Prime Minister Narendra Modi in conversation with Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa at the Necessidades Palace in Lisbon on Saturday.

A search panel set up by the Union human resource development ministry and headed by JNU vice-chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar picked Suresh Kumar for the job. Sources said the ministry had been under immense pressure since Rohith's suicide to appoint a Dalit as head of some institution or the other. Using a Dalit to pacify a Dalit movement will be counterproductive," Rohith's friend Vijay Kumar said. He said a sincere government would have appointed many of the Dalit thinkers associated with progressive movements to senior posts. Suresh Kumar told this newspaper he would focus on the increased use of technology for better classroom teaching, and the launch of training programmes in communicative English for college teachers.

"We don't mind paying extra, but the railways should take a decision to start the train without further delay.

"From Ranchi, the train connects those who are residents of Simaria, Barauni, Samastipur, Darbhanga, Madhubani and Jaynagar, all in Mithilanchal. This was the most popular train," he rued, adding they had submitted several memorandums to Ranchi rail division and that today's protest is in continuation of their campaign.
CPM leader Brinda Karat consoles Junaid's mother Zaira in Haryana on Saturday. "We were told that harassment of people identifiable as Muslims has become a common occurrence on this train and the local trains on this route. Karat was speaking to reporters here after visiting Junaid's family in Ballabhgarh along with other party members. "At the village, we were told that it was now normal for Muslims travelling on the trains to be mocked as 'beef-eaters' and accused of killing cows," the CPM leader said. "The fact is that they don't even feel the need to reach out to these families even for the sake of pretence," Malik said.
Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said this was the "biggest" loan waiver scheme in the country. He said all BJP ministers and legislators would contribute a month's salary towards the loan waiver. "This Rs 34,020-crore loan waiver scheme - 'Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Krushi Sanman Yojana' - will benefit 89 lakh farmers in the state, out of which 40 lakh cultivators will become debt-free," he told reporters here. "There has been a demand for loan waiver for farmers who have been severely affected due to continuous drought since 2012. The Uttar Pradesh government had announced a Rs 1-lakh loan waiver for all marginal and small farmers (those owning up to 5 acres of farmland).
New Delhi, June 24: The Congress has alleged a "conspiracy of encouragement" for lynch mobs that were targeting Muslims in different parts of the country. "Another innocent life lost as lynch mobs get a free rein under the ruling establishment. Many Congress leaders expressed shock and anguish at the incident, saying that Muslims were under a sustained attack because of the ideological bias of the Sangh parivar. Asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to follow rajdharma, Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala said: "Mobocracy has replaced democracy under the BJP." While strong condemnation hasn't often been offered by the political leadership, several ministers and senior BJP leaders have been accused of indulging in communal rhetoric.
Gangtok, June 24 (PTI): China has refused entry to the first batch of around 50 Indian pilgrims who were scheduled to travel to Kailash Mansarovar through the Nathu La pass in Sikkim, citing damage to roads because of rains and landslides in the Tibet region.

Asked if flights would be diverted from IGI airport, sources said there were no such plans and it was just a preliminary announcement on an airport that would take five to six years to set up. But all the proposals were nixed by a rule that says a second airport cannot come up within 150km of a major airport. "Noida International Airport will cater to 30-50 million passengers per year over the next 10-15 years," he tweeted, referring to the new airport that would come up. "In Delhi, we are expecting 91 million passengers by 2020 and 109 million passengers by 2024," the minister added. But officials pointed to a precedence - the Greater Mumbai Airport being awarded to GVK, which was already running the Mumbai airport at Santa Cruz.
India and Pakistan had both applied for NSG membership last summer, and neither is part of the NPT regime. India had received a special waiver from the NSG in 2008, which allows it to conduct nuclear trade with cartel members even though it isn't a member. That waiver, earned thanks to pressure from the then George W. Bush administration in the US on other NSG members, helped India develop its own domestic nuclear industry. The 2008 waiver, India has argued, showcases the NSG's trust in New Delhi's commitment to non-proliferation even without being part of the NPT regime. He will then visit the Netherlands - again an NSG member that has supported India.
Lord Jagannath is my best friend and I call him sanga (buddy). I often drive to Puri early in the morning and late at night to visit the Lord. I make it a point to be a part of rath yatra every year. I wanted to return to Odisha at the earliest possible so that I could plan for my trip for rath yatra. Every ritual associated with the chariot festival is special and brings with it uncommon notions.
Removed as the Board president by the Supreme Court, on January 2, Anurag is currently busy organising Himachal's first-ever Olympic games. Excerpts... Q Almost six months have gone by since the Supreme Court removed you as the Board president. The state Olympic games will, hopefully, throw up talent that can be nurtured. You were the Board president then... Mr Shirke is entitled to say what he feels on any issue. Surely, after a cooling-off period, you could well make a comeback in the Board... God has been very kind to me and I already have enough on my plate...
I feel truly blessed and humbled that we are a family that has been serving the Lord since many, many centuries. As a child I remember year after year celebrating the magnificent festival of rath yatra in Puri. Being from Odisha and especially being a part of the serving royal family, I feel an inborn sense of respect for the glorious heritage and the traditions of Lord Jagannath. It celebrates the omnipresent and all pervading energy of Lord Jagannath in the universe on the day of rath yatra every year. It has been a while since I saw rath yatra in Puri but I intend to go next year with my family.
"The only difference is that Jadhav was implicated by Pakistan while we were implicated by our own government in a false case," said Nirmal Ajwani, a retired major. Ajwani was among 60 army men belonging to the 168 infantry brigade at Samba in Jammu and Kashmir who were arrested for allegedly spying for Pakistan between 1972 and 1978. They were taken into custody on the basis of the statement of a self-confessed Pakistani spy - Sarwan Dass - who worked as a gunner in the Indian Army. Dass said when he was later caught by Military Intelligence of Indian Army, he was tortured and was asked to name senior army officials. The army chief and the Union government have powers under Section 165 of the Army Act to annul the cases.
