Delhi Triangle

first_imgIn the last four months, the national capital of India has witnessed a series of claims and counter-claims prophesying a prospective alliance between the Indian National Congress (INC) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Two days ahead of the last day of filing nominations, both parties announced that the discussions and meetings had yielded nothing and, as a result, no alliance between the two could be formed. Until the announcement, neither INC nor Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had declared its candidates for Delhi. After the failure of an alliance, BJP announced its candidates followed by the Congress. AAP had already announced its candidates a few months back. Also Read – A race against timeJust like the 2014 polls, Delhi is all set to witness another triangular poll where all major stakeholders will battle for victory. In this election, AAP has focused on new and young faces whereas BJP has mostly retained its sitting MPs with Congress nominating most of its veterans. Key candidates & seats Being the national capital, Delhi has always attracted the attention of political parties and this election has been no exception. The capital is divided into seven parliamentary constituencies – East, West, South, New Delhi, Chandni Chowk, North East and North West. Also Read – A Golden LootIn the last Lok Sabha election of 2014, BJP had won all seats. In terms of vote share, BJP managed nearly 46 per cent, followed by AAP at nearly 35 per cent and Congress trailing behind with just 15 per cent. The vote-sharing pattern led to the conclusion that an alliance between Congress and AAP is likely to be more effective in defeating BJP across all seven constituencies. The North East seat has become one of the star seats – Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit, renowned Bhojpuri actor and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and popular AAP face Dilip Pandey are up against one another. Similarly, the East Delhi seat has also become a key attraction as former cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir is fighting for BJP against one of AAP’s most popular faces, an alumnus of Oxford University, Atishi. For the same, Congress has nominated former Delhi Pradesh Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely. Interestingly, the South Delhi seat has also become a major attraction with AAP nominating its youngest face, Raghav Chadha, a 30-year-old chartered accountant. Chadha will fight against Congress party’s star candidate, Vijender Singh and BJP’s Ramesh Bidhuri. Poll agenda Poll agenda has always featured as a major issue dividing political parties. AAP, led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, has made the demand of full-statehood its prime poll agenda. The demand for granting full-statehood to Delhi is not a new issue but, nevertheless, a much-discussed topic among political parties, even though the residents of Delhi care little for it. Earlier, both BJP and Congress had proposed granting full-statehood to Delhi. In fact, the proposal also found its place in BJP’s manifesto of 2014. However, this year, the BJP manifesto has included no such promise. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been addressing this issue in every rally across the city. Moreover, opposition political parties like TDP and TMC are also supporting this demand. The party is connecting the demand with issues like law and order, unemployment, higher education and demand of housing for all. While AAP, being largely a Delhi-based political party, has kept its focus on Delhi-centric issues, both Congress and BJP have posited national issues as their poll agenda. The Congress party’s key poll agenda will be its much emphasised NYAY scheme. The Congress party’s 2019 election manifesto has promised a Minimum Income Guarantee Scheme (MIGS), formally called Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY), to five crore ‘poorest families’ covering 25 crore people by assuring them a guaranteed minimum income of Rs 6,000 per month or Rs 72,000 a year. DPCC chief Sheila Dikshit has also promised the same for Delhi residents. Meanwhile, BJP is preparing for the election in Delhi keeping Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s face most prominent. The party will focus on schemes announced by the BJP-led Centre, which includes the universal health scheme, housing schemes, among others. Demography & voting According to the census report, Delhi is the fifth most populous city in the world and the largest city in India area-wise. In 2016, Delhi had an estimated population of 18.6 million. Nearly 12 per cent of the population of Delhi comprises Muslims, a traditional vote bank of the Congress. However, in the 2015 Vidhan Sabha polls, AAP secured 77 per cent of the total Muslim vote. According to earlier data, in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, AAP got 56 per cent of Muslim votes, followed by Congress at 39 per cent and BJP at 2 per cent. Before 2014 too, available data showed that, in Delhi, BJP had a very narrow base among Muslim voters while the Congress was the strongest. The Sikhs, 4 per cent of Delhi’s population, also rallied behind AAP – 57 per cent in the 2015 assembly elections. Earlier, the Sikh community was also a stronghold of the Congress. The upper-caste and OBC vote base, earlier with the Congress, shifted towards BJP in the 2014 election, largely a product of the anti-incumbency wave which had reached its peak in 2013-14. According to surveys, AAP has always had a strong base among Muslims and Dalits in Delhi. A study by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) shows that 56 per cent Muslims voted for AAP in 2014 and 41 per cent Dalits who were earlier, in 2009, with the Congress, had voted for AAP in 2014. In 2009, 78 per cent Muslims voted for Congress followed by 58 per cent Dalits. The Congress also lost much of its Sikh vote to the BJP in 2014 and Dalit vote to AAP. The Other Backward Classes vote, meanwhile, shifted partly to BJP and partly to AAP. By the 2015 election, Congress retained substantial support among only the Muslims. But even then, a section of the community went with AAP. With polling due in a week, Delhi is witnessing a riot of colours panning political allegiances. Road shows, rallies and door-to-door campaigns are visible across corners of our walled city. Between promises and failures, jibes and vibes, rallies and allies, blames and names, the Capital is all set for another triangular contest with three major political parties looking to wrest each other’s clout.last_img read more

UN seeking support from donors to scale up cashforwork initiative in Haiti

“The goal of the next few days is to ramp up the coverage, depending on the generosity of donors,” Jordan Ryan, Assistant Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), told a news conference.UNDP coordinates the cash-for-work programme, which was identified as one of the priority activities in the early recovery agenda following the 12 January quake, which is estimated to have affected one third of the 9 million citizens of Haiti, already the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.Mr. Ryan said the programme draws on the experience of the Government of Haiti and UNDP coming out of the 2008 hurricane season when over 100,000 jobs were created following those disasters.So far just over 30,000 people in Haiti are working through the cash-for-work programme, receiving the equivalent of just under $5 a day. “Clearly, we want to grow that up as rapidly as possible,” said Mr. Ryan, adding that this involves working closely with the Government as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which play a large part in dispersing the programme throughout Port-au-Prince and other affected areas.As part of the wider $575 million flash appeal launched by the UN for humanitarian relief efforts, UNDP is seeking $35.6 million for immediate recovery priorities, including debris clearance, rehabilitation of basic infrastructure, and cash-for-work reconstruction activities. So far UNDP has received $10 million to date for the cash-for-work programme, with another $7 million pledged by a number of countries, including China, Spain and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). “There still is a funding gap for the early recovery of at least $18 million,” Mr. Ryan pointed out. “There are still a number of donors that have yet to come on board. We hope they will because this will allow us to scale up this early recovery activity.”He stressed the value added associated with the cash-for-work programme. “It gives people a feeling that they’ve got a stake in the recovery. It gives them a bit of money in their pocket. “We do believe it’s one of those types of activities in an early recovery programme that can reduce social tensions,” he said, adding that it can also enable people to acquire new skills which they can use later. 4 February 2010The United Nations is seeking to scale up its cash-for-work programme that is enabling Haitians to earn an income as they help their country recover from last month’s devastating earthquake, and the world body is calling on donors to help fund the vital initiative. read more

Protesters resume call for sanctions against Mayor Town Clerk

A small group of persons on Thursday stood in front of City Hall holding placards once again calling for the Mayor, Patricia Chase-Green and Town Clerk, Royston King to be arrested and dismissed from duties for allegedly attempting to “cover up” allegations of sexual assault committed on a 15-year-old boy by a City Constable.“Every single body who knew about this and kept it under wraps should be punished in some way,” Akola Thompson, an activist said.Another picketer told media operatives that since the group’s first protest, the accused City Constable has since been charged. However, according to him, justice has not been served since the Mayor and Town Clerk are “accessories to the crime after the fact.”“There are no charges or nothing of the sort against the Mayor and the Town Clerk who knew, according to [Chief] Constable (Andrew) Foo who said that within six hours of this crime occurring, the Mayor and the Town Clerk knew of it and they lied to the people…We need accountability,” Don Singh said.Singh also called on the Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan to intervene and sanction the duo.Moreover, another protester contended that in addition to Chase-Green and King, the former Deputy Mayor, Sherod Duncan is also to be blamed for the alleged cover-up.“The Legal Affairs Committee, I understand is chaired by none other than Sherod Duncan. Therefore, all of them are equally guilty of trying to cover up this incident,” Jonathan Yearwood asserted.The protesters avowed that they will continue to stage protests in front of City Hall, every Thursday until appropriate action is taken.INews had reported that a 15-year-old boy was taken into custody on August 17, 2017 and placed before the court on a charge of wandering.At some point during his detention for reasons unknown- between August 22 and August 23- the minor was transferred to the Regent Street Outpost where an alleged sexual act was carried out involving the child and the accused, Lance Corporal Clifton Pellew.Officer Quacy Baveghems had reportedly informed his superior of the act, claiming that he had witnessed it. However, as an investigation began into the matter, it was discovered that Baveghems did not make a written entry of the incident in the station diary.Pellew and Baveghems were then dismissed, after receiving a letter signed by the Town Clerk.Pellew, the alleged perpetrator was dismissed for “gross misconduct of carrying out a sexual act on a juvenile” while his colleague was sacked for dereliction of duty in failing to intervene or make an entry of the incident in the station diary.The issue was brought to light after former Deputy Mayor, Sherod Duncan took to social media to question whether the Town Clerk should be disciplined as well, since according to Duncan, King had interviewed the alleged victim and failed to submit a report to the Legal Affairs and Security Committee.In an invited comment, Chase-Green had told this publication that the decision to dismiss the officers came following the discovery of new evidence.“There were some additional information that was brought to the council’s attention and some video tapings. Based on those video tapes, and even though it was still an alleged allegation, in the best interest of the Constabulary and the Organization the Town Clerk as administrator of the city of Georgetown would have dismissed them both,” Chase-Green added.She had noted that following the dismissal of the Officers, the Police were called in and the matter is now in their hands.Meanwhile, in 2016, it was reported that the accused was involved in a matter of similar nature. However, nothing came out of the issue as the juvenile then, did not pursue it.

How birth place can be made party to land dispute asks SC

first_imgNew Delhi : The Supreme Court on Thursday asked ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’, one of the parties in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute at Ayodhya, as to how the birth place of the deity can be regarded as a “juristic person” having stakes in the case. The apex court, which was hearing the case on the third day, said that so far as Hindu deities are concerned, they have been treated as juristic person in law which can hold properties and institute a litigation. Also Read – Subramanian Swamy cross-examined in National Herald case Advertise With Us A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, however, asked senior advocate K Parasaran, appearing for ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’, as to how ‘Janamsthanam’ (birth place) can file a suit in this matter as a party. “Whether the birth place can be held to be a juristic person. So far as idols of deities are concerned, they had been held to be a juristic person,” said the bench, also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer. Also Read – War propaganda delays removal of internet restriction in Jammu and Kashmir Advertise With Us Responding to the query, Parasaran told the bench, “In Hindu religion, idols are not necessary for a place to be regarded as a holy place of worship…. Rivers and Sun are also worshipped in Hinduism and birth place in itself can be treated as a juristic person.” The law suit filed by the deity in the Ayodhya case has also made the birth place of Lord Ram as one of the parties. Advertise With Us The bench then referred to a judgement of the Uttarakhand High Court in which the holy river Ganga was held to be a juristic entity entitled to pursue the litigation. “The Uttarakhand High Court has said that the rivers are also juristic entities capable of being a party in the case,” the bench observed. The bench then asked Parasaran to proceed with his submissions on other issues. Parasaran alleged that the deity ‘Ram Lalla Virajaman’ was not made a party when the magistrate had attached the disputed site and when the civil court granted injunction by appointing receiver in the case. Highlighting the importance of birth place, Parasaran recited a Sanskrit Shloka, ‘Janani janmbhoomis cha swargadapi gariyasi’, and said that a birth place is greater than heaven. The argument would continue in the post-lunch session. At the outset, senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for a Muslim party, said that the two separate law suits filed by ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’ and ‘Nirmohi Akhara’ respectively are at “loggerheads” of each other and if one is allowed then other goes automatically. He suggested that the Muslim party can be asked to advance submissions in either of the law suits as only can be allowed legally. Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla. On December 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid, constructed at the disputed site in the 16th century by Shia Muslim Mir Baqi, was demolished.last_img read more

Australia rejects proposal to base US carrier

A New Feature for SCRA Compliance

first_img Share Default Servicing military lending Quandis Inc. 2019-02-22 Radhika Ojha in Headlines, News, REO, Servicing A New Feature for SCRA Compliancecenter_img California-based Quandis Inc., a default management mortgage technology provider has incorporated a new functionality into its Military Search service that empowers clients with the ability to easily customize real-time monitoring data analysis that is more explicitly and inclusive in nature. The new functionality returns the most granular searches in the industry for active military personnel along with detailed reporting.Called the Quandis Military Search (QMS), the solution verifies up-to-the-second information on active duty military status to help organizations comply with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) of 2003, which has stringent rules and processes that must be followed before starting mortgage foreclosure proceedings on borrowers that hold active duty status in the United States military. Stiff fines, penalties, and lawsuits can result from active military personnel that is improperly pursued in the default process.“Our development of QMS monitoring takes SCRA compliance adherence a step further by putting users in full control of their data and preferences as to how, when and to what degree of finality they would like to execute searches,” explained Greg Kent, vice president of data services at Quandis. “Our clients no longer require IT resources to compare and detect SCRA status changes.”The new functionality works by providing organizations with the ability to define “monitoring cycles” for their data, which automatically runs SCRA searches using both client-defined criteria and schedules. The continual search cycles allow for comparison of key SCRA data points over time thus identifying any changes in SCRA eligibility. The expanded functionality reports on specific data points as defined by unique client needs.QMS automates bulk as well as individual searches and can be used as a standalone solution or as integrated with leading attorney case management systems (CMS), servicing platforms and legacy applications to return and populate search certificates along with relevant data. The solution is being successfully leveraged by foreclosure attorneys, servicers, lenders, banks, and third-party outsourcing providers. February 22, 2019 895 Views last_img read more
