Lalu Prasad , RJD president and Ex- CM of Bihar, Jagannath Mishra appeared in the special CBI court, Ranchi for the trial of multi-crore fodder scam case. The hearing will take place in the presence of CBI judge Dev Raj Tripathi, PTI reported.

The scam which had hit the headlines saw Lalu was debarred from ontesting elections under the Representation of the People Act, 1951. Now that trial will go on, the former Bihar Chief Minister will have to wait for more time to fight polls.

Under the Fodder Scam Case, 45 persons were accused and some of them had died during trial. Currently 26 people are facing trial in accusation of the Fodder Scam case.

Earlier on June 6 Lalu Prasad, Jagannath Mishra and other went to the special CBI court in connection with fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 40 lakh from the Bhagalpur treasury in 1996.

Lalu Prasad on May, 8th was ordered by The Supreme Court that he has to appear in all the four cases of Fodder Scam. The SC had aside the 2014 Jharkhand High Court order which had stayed the trial against Yadav after conviction in one of the cases. The CBI had challenged the 2014 order of the Jharkhand High Court quashing four pending fodder scam cases against him on the grounds that a person convicted in one case could not be tried in similar cases based on same witnesses and evidences.

In reference to the hearing of courts in Fodder Scam Case Lalu Yadav has given statement that, “I have full faith in judiciary. I will appear in court whenever asked.”

Lalu today appeared in court for two cases, in relation with the  fraudulent withdrawal from Deoghar district treasury and Doranda Ranchi tressaury where as Mishra appeared in court for Deoghar Case.

Lalu has been convicted and sentenced to five years’ imprisonment in one of the four cases he faced in fodder scam.

A total of 267 witnesses in this particular case of fodder scam in the Animal Husbandry department during RJD rule in Bihar and of this 34 have already recorded there statements.

The Rs 900-crore fodder scam surfaced in early 1990s when Lalu Prasad was the Chief Minister of Bihar. Majority of cases belonged to Jharkhand region of the then undivided Bihar.

Shahrukh-Anushka Film 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' Finally Has a Name, Averts Clash With Akshay’s Toilet


After months of speculation about the name of Srk-Imtiaz’s film, Shahrukh Khan finally confirmed the name of his next with Anushka as ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’. Isn’t this really interesting and a cool name? Last year, Salman Khan tweeted the released date of Srk-Imtiaz’s film and said to his followers that he has decided the date (11 Aug 2017) and you decide the name. Later, Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha was also scheduled to release on 11 August 2017, clashing with Shahrukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. The posters of Srk’s film were released on the social media last night, ditching all the speculated names like ‘Raula’, ‘The Ring’ and ‘Rehnuma’, and confirming ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ as the title of the film.

The title of Srk’s film also reminiscent of Imtiaz’s blockbuster film ‘Jab We Met’ starring Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. On the other hand, it also reminds us of the iconic American rom-com film starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan ‘When Harry Met Sally’. We just hope that Srk’s film with Anushka would not be inspired from any of the films made before. Shahrukh Khan tweeted, “Just in case Ranbir Kapoor ever claims it…the title Jab Harry met Sejal was never ever suggested by him! So he doesn’t win the Rs.5000 reward.” It looks like that Khan was talking about the reward of Rs 5000 announced by the film’s team for anyone who would come up with a suitable title for the film. In the meantime, Anushka Sharma tweeted the first poster of the film by posting ‘What you seek’ and the Khan tweeted another poster by tweeting ‘Is seeking you’.

Akshay and Shahrukh

Imtiaz Ali is quite famous for bringing the freshness and new style of romance through his movies in regular Hindi movies, and we are hoping the same from him for this movie as well. The first two posters of the film show us some kind of vibrant looks of both the characters. There is no doubt in that ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is one of the most anticipated movies of this year. Talking about the release of the film, now Srk’s film with Anushka will release hit screens on August 4, a week before the release of Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. We are 100% sure that now fans of Shahrukh Khan and Akshay Kumar must be breathing a sigh of relief. Whenever two big movies of two big stars on the box office, it creates a definite tension in the industry and also impacts the box office as it gets divided.

What also excites us is the tagline of Rumi’s is being used for every poster of the film, “What you seek is seeking you”. We hope this film must be having some great connection with the story as well. In an interview to Pinkvilla, Imtiaz Ali talked about why he used the quote of Rumi and said that “Although I thought I will not be using any quotation from Rumi anymore, in my movie, then I can’t help it because it is so appropriate that everything I am trying to say in this movie is really what you seek is seeking you. It is a dialogue in the film you will be surprised when you see it. So it is bang on”. The most of the shooting of the film is done in some of the most beautiful cities of Europe like Prague and Amsterdam. According to the reports, Shahrukh Khan must be seen playing a womanizer in the film and it will definitely be interesting to see the superstar in a territory in romance that he hasn’t explored yet.

Shahrukh’s Smart Move

Let us tell you that the makers of the Jab Harry Met Sejal have done a smart job of shifting the release of their film from 11 August 2017 to 4 August 2017, averting the unnecessary clash with Akshay Kumar’s Toliet: Ek Prem Katha. The Srk-Anushka starrer will now release on 4th August and it will enjoy a long weekend of four days. Alongside with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the film also enjoys Monday (August 7) in the form of holiday for famous Indian festival Raksha Bandhan. So in the second weekend as well, Srk’s film could give a heavy competition to Akshay’s film if it would be a good content movie. If we go commercially, it is unarguably a great decision for the makers of the Jab Harry Met Sejal to come on August 4 than unnecessarily clashing with Akshay’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha on August 11. It is expected that the trailer of Srk-Anushka starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal is going to be attached with the Salman Khan’s Tublight releasing on 25 June in which Shahrukh Khan is also doing a cameo.

New Education Reform is all Set to Come UGC and AICTE to be Replaced by HEERA


Modi government is all set to bring the big -bang education reform in the system by scrapping the University Grant Commission (UGC) and All India Council for Technical Education (AITE).

As reported by PTI, The proposed Higher Education Empowerment Regulation Agency (HEERA) is aimed at eliminating overlaps in jurisdiction and removes irrelevant regulatory provisions.

It was felt that regulatory bodies led to excessive and restrictive regulation and hence contributed to lack of institutional autonomy. Thus, both Nitiayog and HRD ministry officials are working on the plan to remove the UGC and AICTE from regulatory bodies.

The HRD ministry is working with Nitiayog to bring the technical and non-technical branches under the same umbrella, According to sources a detailed blueprint of the regulator and its legislation is worked upon.

According to the report published by Economic Times Senior officers who spoke off record told ET that, “the work is on the rapid pace to form the HEERA legislation.” One senior official said replacing  UGC and AICTE will be the “cleanest, most sweeping reform.”

The idea of replacing multiple regulatory bodies with a single body is not new. Earlier Yashpal Committee and the National Knowledge of UPA era and HARI GAUTAM Committee setup by this government has proposed the same.

HEERA is aimed at putting an end to the inspector raj and harrasment that the UGC regime is associated with and this new body will also be empowered of taking strong penal decision, when necessary. Bringing new reforms and replacing UGC and AICTE acts may be a time consuming process. As soon as this gets implemented, this UGC and AICTE would be the matter of the past that will be remembered by all.
