In July, the Court had warned strict action against those public servants and officials appointed for fighting the pandemic of coronavirus, who refused to show up for work. Court had even warned of a surprise visit to hospitals and quarantine centres to ensure that there is discipline in the concerned staff.In last Tuesday’s hearing, Court observed that the Principal seat’s judgment in Jan Swasthya Abhiyan & Anr Vs State of Maharashtra & Ors. and the Nagpur bench’s view taken in the matter of Citizens Forum for Quality vs. State of Maharashtra and others dated June 10, 2020 will be applicable to the present case as well.Noting that there were certain grievances or complaints as regards alleged excessive billing and alleged obstinate attitude shown by certain private hospitals in admitting Covid­-19 patients, the bench had called upon Public Prosecutor DR Kale to take effective steps with regard to such complaints. PP Kale informed the Court that the Divisional Commissioner of the Aurangabad Division Sunil Kendrekar, the Administrator of the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation Astik Kumar Pandey, the District Collector Uday Chaudhari and the Commissioner of Police, Aurangabad Chiranjeev Prasad, had formed a committee to deal with such complaints. Thereafter, Amicus Curiae Senior Advocate Rajendra Deshmukh told the Court that this PIL could be utilized for issuing certain directions and guidelines for administering measures for the containment of Covid-­19 pandemic. The bench was informed by the Amicus Curiae and the Public Prosecutor that though the growth of fresh patients of Covid­-19 in the State of Maharashtra has not abated, the administrations in the 13 districts amenable to the jurisdiction of this Bench, have considerably succeeded in controlling the pandemic. Court said-“The local administrations in all districts are putting in strenuous efforts and are working relentlessly even upto late hours in the night. They begin their activities in the early hours of the day and are leaving no stone unturned in their efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus”. Court referred extensively to the principal seat’s judgment wherein Chief Justice Dipankar Datta directed the State to consider increasing budgetary allocation for public healthcare and advised citizens to ‘serve’ or perform ‘seva’ to others by staying indoors. The bench observed-“It is possible that some employees may be acting negligently and may have indulged in dereliction of duties. It is equally possible that some employees may have faltered or lapses may be attributable to their conduct, which could be out of inadvertence. Each of such cases will have to be dealt with by the administration and an appropriate action can be initiated by following the due procedure of law. At the same time, we deem it appropriate to record that the aggrieved patients or the kith and kin of the victims of callousness and negligence at the hands of the employees on Covid­-19 duties or hospitals, etc., would be at liberty to take recourse to a remedy as is permissible in law, notwithstanding the pending disciplinary action initiated by the employer of such employees.”Moreover, the bench referred to the high recovery rate of positive patients in India and in Maharashtra and noted that the same is encouraging. Court said-“We are given to understand that despite the dense population of this country, the death rate/ mortality in positive patients is one of the lowest in the world. Co­morbidities have also contributed to the cause of death in many cases. In this backdrop, it would be unfair on our part to keep the Damocles Sword of initiating criminal action and registering of criminal offences, hanging on the administration and Covid-­19 employees. We have no doubt that the district administration is working hard. However, black sheep are found in all walks of life and in all spheres. It is mostly such work shirkers and indisciplined employees, who give a set back to the spirit and momentum of hardworking employees and give a bad name to the system.”Court went on to state that the general public at large, on getting to know such instances through the print and electronic media, develops an apprehension or an impression that the State and the local administration have failed. However-“We, while dealing with such cases of work shirking, dereliction of duties and negligence, would be failing in our duties if the effective steps and measures adopted by the administration for battling the spread of Covid­-19 pandemic, are ignored. The dedicated Covid­-19 warriors, who are risking their lives and their families in this war against the pandemic, need to be complimented. The low death rate and high percentage of recovery of patients is not a mere coincidence and is unquestionably the result of dedicated hard work of the corona warriors. Their service in such extra­ordinary testing times, is a service to the Nation and mankind.”Referring to the media’s important role as a fourth pillar of our democracy, Court said it has a enormous capacity to highlight the effective efforts of the administration as well as the shortcomings-“However, good efforts put in by the administration should not be criticised merely for the sake of public consumption. Unnecessary or unwarranted criticism has it’s own pitfalls. It could cause irreparable damage and would dampen the spirit of the covid­19 warriors. We are aware that the Constitutional Court is to ensure that the fundamental rights of the citizens guaranteed under the Constitution of India, have to be protected. The Constitutional Court should neither be shy of nor find itself powerless in upholding the fundamental rights of the citizens as guaranteed under Article 21.”Finally, Court directed the district collectors in all districts to establish a task force if not already established. The bench also warned action against private hospitals levelling excessive charges on both Covid and non-Covid patients. The bench observed-“Service to mankind is service to the Lord Almighty. It is a pious act. Much has been done. Lot more needs to be done. In this situation, we are reminded of the 1922 poem by Robert Frost, titled as “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”, which ends with “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.” We are sure that these words would inspire all those involved in the Covid­19 battle, to continue their good work to save mankind. The translation by Girija Kumar Mathur of the original by Charles Albert Tindley (I will overcome some day), “Hum Honge Kaamyab Ek Din”, will give all enough inspiration.”Finally, disposing of the PIL, Court complimented the district administration comprising all the District Collectors, District Superintendent of Police and the Civil Surgeons in Aurangabad but said-“At the same time, we expect the State and the administration to deal with willful and intentional acts of negligence, callousness and work shirking, with a strict hand and initiate appropriate action against such errant employees/officers.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]  Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgWolves dent Spurs’ title hopes in a stunning comeback win at WembleyLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham’s Premier League title hopes took a major hit on Saturday when Wolves beat them 3-1 at Wembley to end their winning run.Spurs took the lead with a Harry Kane pile-driver in the first half but the visitors staged a ferocious comeback through Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and substitute Helder Costa.Mauricio Pochettino’s team found themselves in the title picture thanks to five straight league wins and a mini-collapse from defending champions Manchester City.With league leaders Liverpool not in action against Arsenal until later on Saturday, Spurs knew they had a chance to crank up the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s unbeaten side.But Tottenham — who had scored 11 goals in their previous two festive fixtures, will be bitterly disappointed that they did not beat Wolves after dominating the first half.The first few minutes of the match were scrappy as both teams looked for rhythm but Spurs gradually exerted control, Christian Eriksen and the returning Dele Alli probing for openings around the edge of the box.The in-form Son Heung-min, with four goals in his previous two league games, was a constant threat with his pace and tried his luck from distance in the eighth minute after patient build-up play.Kieran Trippier hit a free-kick into the arms of Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio after Kane was fouled and Eriksen then tested Patricio from distance.Spurs were finally rewarded midway through the first half when Son fed Kane, who marauded forward down the right.Just before he reached the edge of the Wolves box he checked back onto his left foot and hit an unstoppable shot into the far corner past the despairing Patricio.But Tottenham were unable to add to their lead before the break and Wolves sporadically threatened, especially when Adama Traore was on the ball.Traore was substituted with just over half an hour to go but the visitors were seeing more of the ball and the Spurs fans became increasingly edgy as the second half progressed. Wolves, urged on by a sizeable travelling support, disrupted Tottenham’s smooth passing game, denying their creative players time on the ball.The equaliser came in the 72nd minute after a period of pressure from Wolves earned a corner.Substitute Moutinho swung in the corner and Boly rose to head it past Hugo Lloris.Kane was booked for diving as Spurs poured forward looking for an winner but Wolves scored again when Jimenez struck the ball right-footed from the centre of the box past Lloris in the 83rd minute.Four minutes later they extended their lead as substitute Costa struck to leave Spurs with a mountain to climb.The defeat leaves Spurs on 45 points after 20 games, with 15 wins and five defeats.Liverpool had 51 points from 19 games before they kicked off against Arsenal while Manchester City, in action on Sunday, have 44 points from 19 matches.

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal government wants to see a new process established to resolve conflicts over permits that Kinder Morgan says is delaying construction on its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion in British Columbia.Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr says the government has written to the National Energy Board, endorsing the creation of a panel that would address conflicts over municipal or provincial permits.Kinder Morgan (TSX:KML) has appealed to the board, arguing Burnaby in Metro Vancouver is wrongly withholding construction permits for Trans Mountain after it has been approved by the federal government.British Columbia’s NDP government has also promised to do everything in its power to stop the expansion.Ottawa approved the $7.4-billion project last year, but Trans Mountain has faced opposition and legal challenges from local communities, environmentalists and First Nations.The pipeline goes from an Edmonton area tank farm to a port in Burnaby.Carr said he supports the establishment of a standing panel to determine Kinder Morgan’s compliance with project conditions placed on Trans Mountain.“The government has taken an important step to ensure that when a natural resource project is approved, it proceeds in a timely fashion and continues to generate economic benefits for all Canadians,” he said in a statement issued Wednesday.“The government is supportive of establishing a process that would assist in resolving any conflicts over the issuance of municipal or provincial permits and avoid unnecessary delays to project construction or regulatory compliance.”Burnaby’s position has been criticized by the governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan.The city has said it is applying its regulatory process on the project in good faith.Kinder Morgan has asked the energy board for an order allowing work to begin without permits from Burnaby, and has also applied for an “expedited determination” to resolve similar problems in future.The expansion would more than triple the pipeline’s daily capacity to 890,000 barrels and increase the number of oil tankers moving through the Georgia Strait.Kinder Morgan officials have said delays in the project have the potential to cost millions of dollars and push the expansion nine months behind schedule.last_img read more

first_imgDivyenndu is one of those actors who gets into the skin of the character he plays, brings it to life on screen and makes his audience feel every emotion that the character is experiencing. That is why as much as we love the aggressive yet sweet Liquid of ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnaama’, the evil Munna Bhaiyya from ‘Mirzapur’ fills our heart with anger and hate. To prove his acting skills yet again, Divyenndu is back with Zee5’s feature film ‘Badnaam Gali’ and Season 2 of ‘Mirzapur’. Read what he has to say about playing two entirely different characters at the same time. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainHow is it to work on two different characters at a time (in Mirzapur and Badnaam Gali). My character in ‘Mirzapur’ is entirely different from what I am playing in Badnaam Gali, and it is tricky to keep the two worlds separate. It gets even more difficult when I have group reading and rehearsal sessions for ‘Mirzapur’ and Badnaam Gali happening simultaneously. Though I can’t do much about it, I try and concentrate on one project at a time and not think about the other. This helps in keeping things sorted to an extent. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardPeople have high expectations from you after ‘Mirzapur’. Does that scare you? I actually don’t think about anything apart from my work. I believe in honesty and 100 percent involvement. That is why audience’s expectations don’t scare me, instead they inspire me to improve my craft. Moreover, I think, as actors, our only job is to work hard and enjoy every bit of what we do. Do you agree that web platforms give more artistic freedom to the actors. How? Yes, I totally agree with it as web platforms have no restrictions or rules. There is all the freedom to present a story in whichever way you want. Also, unlike movies, you don’t have to be worried about the weekend’s collection. You don’t compete with anybody and anything. All these factors have made web actors more fearless and creative, thereby giving them the scope to explore and experiment. If given a choice between web shows and movies, what will be your pick? That’s really difficult! But honestly, the platform doesn’t really matter to me. I would have been equally excited to play Munna Bhaiyya if ‘Mirzapur’ had been a film. It’s not the medium but the content that tops my checklist. I pick projects according to the content, character, and story. What’s your most prized possession? It might sound like a cliché but people who like and appreciate my work have a belief that ‘if this guy (me) is there in the film, then there must be something special about the project’. This appreciation towards my work…towards my craft… is what I value the most. Your feature film Badnaam Gali revolves around surrogacy – an extremely sensitive topic. Did you have inhibitions while signing a film, which discusses surrogacy in a humourous way? Not really, because it totally depends on the intention of makers and how they want to present it. What hit me was the fact that it is important for us to talk about things like surrogacy as normally as possible, without considering it a taboo. It is not something to be ashamed of, rather it’s a great way to give hope to couples who can’t have a child due to biological issues. Tell us about your character in the film. On a scale of 0-10, how challenging was it? It was quite challenging because I was playing a Punjabi guy who comes from a well to do family and is extremely confused in life. For somebody who is not a Punjabi, it is challenging to get the dialect right and maintain the essence. I had to pay attention to minute details and that consumed a lot of energy. So, I would say it was 8/10 for me. The story is focused on Patralekha’s character. Was it difficult to make your character look equally prominent? Not really! The story justifies both the roles equally. The story is about how Randeep Singh Sodhi (played by Divyenndu) comes to this Badnaam Gali and meets Patralekha (who is playing a surrogate mother). It revolves around how people have different opinions about her, consider surrogacy as a taboo, and create negative views in their mind. Randeep stands along with her all the while and appreciates her effort in helping couples who are biologically incapable of having a baby. So, both the characters are equally important for the story to progress.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday dismissed a plea seeking direction to the Centre and the Election Commission to debar Congress President Rahul Gandhi from contesting Lok Sabha elections till the issue of his citizenship is decided. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi rejected the contention of the petitioners, who said that in a form along with the annual data of a UK-based company in 2005-06, it was allegedly mentioned that Rahul Gandhi is a British citizen. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework “If some company in some form mentions his nationality as British, does he become a British citizen,” the bench also comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna told the petitioners. The plea had said that the petitioners were “dissatisfied” with the “inaction” of the Centre and the poll panel in “deciding the question of voluntary acquisition of British citizenship” by Gandhi in spite of a November 2015 communication by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in this regard. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen The petitioners — Jai Bhagwan Goyal and C P Tyagi — had alleged that since prima facie evidence in this regard has been produced before the Home Ministry and the EC, Gandhi should not have been allowed to contest the ongoing Lok Sabha elections from parliamentary constituencies he has decided to — Amethi in Utter Pradesh and Wayanad in Kerala. The plea, filed by advocate Barun Kumar Sinha, had also sought a direction to the EC to remove Gandhi’s name from “electoral roll till the decision of the question of acquisition of his British citizenship”. In a recent letter to Gandhi, the Home Ministry had said it has received a representation from Swamy in which it has been brought out that a company named Backops Limited was registered in the United Kingdom in 2003 with Rahul Gandhi as one of its directors. The Home Ministry had said Swamy’s letter mentioned that in the British company’s annual returns filed on October 10, 2005 and October 31, 2006, Rahul’s date of birth has been given as June 19, 1970 and had declared his nationality as British.last_img read more
