Kasam apni janmabhumi ki, Haryana mein agli sarkar AAP ki banegi: Delhi CM Kejriwal


After being in news for his range of apologies in Defamation cases, Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal formally announced that his party would fight the 2019 assembly elections in Haryana.

Kejriwal added that AAP was ready to work for a Delhi-like miracle in Haryana. Making noise for his official political entry to Haryana in a well-attended rally in Hisar on Sunday, the Delhi CM said he wants a “new Haryana” in which old parties and leaders have no place. “Kasam apni janmabhumi ki, Haryana mein agli sarkar AAP ki banegi aur jo kaam koi bhi party nahin kar payee, vo Kejriwal karega Haryana mein (I am taking a pledge at my birthplace that the AAP would form next government in Haryana and Kejriwal would do what other parties have failed to deliver in their regimes),” the Delhi chief minister Kejriwal said in his 30-minute address. The Delhi CM offered to give an alternative to the people of Haryana who have given enough chances to other political parties in the last 50-odd years.

Demonstrating his achievements in the national capital to improve conditions of government schools and state-run hospitals, Kejriwal said he has thought of the same revolution in Haryana. Throwing an emotional card about his roots in Hisar, Kejriwal remembered names of the school and college where he had studied and the institution where his father used to work during their stay in Hisar. The Delhi chief minister also accused the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government of troubling social fabric of Haryana by generating caste-based divisions and blamed the former Congress governments for corruption.

Kejriwal, in his aggressive “Haryana Bachao Rally”, said that he is hopeful his party would even break Delhi’s record by winning the highest number of assembly seats in Haryana in 2019 assembly polls.

Ajinkya Rahane to lead Rajasthan Royals as Steve Smith steps down from his captaincy


After confessing to ball-tampering during Australia’s loss to South Africa in the Cape Town Test, Steve Smith has stepped down from his rank as captain of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rajasthan Royals. The Aussie skipper will be replaced by Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane as the Rajasthan Royal’s captain for the IPL 2018 season.

This happening has taken place after a couple of days, Smith and teammate, Cameron Bancroft sensationally confessed to having tempered the ball of the Third Test on Day 3 against South Africa. Whereas Australia lost the match by 322 runs, the Test itself was outshined by the shameful incident on Saturday, with Bancroft caught on cameras using sandpaper in an effort to shine the ball. Earlier to this, Rajasthan Royals had stated that it would wait for the instructions from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) before deciding on Smith’s future as captain of the team. The IPL franchise, on the other hand, confirmed the change in a press release on Monday.

On Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to examine the constitutional validity of the dominant practices of polygamy and ‘nikah halala’ among Muslims and asked for responses from the Centre and the Law Commission.

A bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra reflected the submission that the past five-judge constitution bench had kept open the issue of polygamy and ‘nikah halala’ whereas defeating triple talaq in its 2017 verdict. The bench said today a new five-judge constitution bench would be set up to deal with the constitutionality of ‘nikah halala’ and polygamy, which also includes Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud. The polygamy allows a Muslim man to have four wives whereas ‘nikah halala’ deals with the course in which a Muslim woman has to marry another person (mostly for a night) and get divorced from him before being allowed to marry her divorcee husband again.

A five-judge constitution bench had earlier held triple talaq as unconstitutional in its judgment delivered last year with a majority of 3:2. The bench, on the other hand, was hearing at least three petitions including some PILs confronting the practices on various grounds counting that they violate Right to Equality and gender practice.

Escalation of Tensions: Trump and Kim Tete-a-tete

The future that world wats to see.

The Americans are living in the era when 15 years back they had a President who had the same motor-mouth credentials and sense of justice like the  one ruling today.

Yes, from the reign of George W. Bush to Donald Trump, the times have changed and  yet the equations seem to be building up just the same that led to the invasion of Iraq, and in the aftermath today the world realises the persistent threat of escalation of tensions in the middle-east which is remained the new world’s war zone for decades now.

The American establishment has seemingly not learned its lessons from the distinguished experience that shook the humanity and affected the human order. The effect, or rather the lesson that should have been learnt is not one that is a hard to learn but pretty evident.

The Americans calculated that the expedition in the Iraqi nation would only last for a bare 5 months or one year, but unfortunately, it has lasted for almost a complete decade. The Americans also assessed that the populous of Iraq qould overwhelmingly support the American liberators, while nothing of that sort happened, because the Americans deprived the Iraqis of their prosperity under the villainous dictator Saddam Hossein, who ensured free education and healthcare to his citizens, while now, the Iraqis just pray for a stable life.

The rise of ISIS, the escalation of tensions between the Arabs and the Iranis, and the persistent threat of Israelis and Arabs warring with each other, is the outcome of the American invasion.

Today, with Americans under Donald Trump nearing a trade war with the Chinese, aka the ‘manufacturing house of the world’, the global markets have already gone into a tizzy with the major selling catching pace, and crude prices rising by the night.

Such tensions, also give rise to a sectarian world, where the North Koreans backed by China, may offer a tough time to the Americans as the Chinese may not directly confront Americans. Thus, the observers and experts at Washington and Pyongyang may work overtime to gaze at the constructive outcomes of the possible tete-a-tete between Donald Trump and Kim-jong-Un, which has received a positive comment from the world leaders. The meeting will be held in May sometime.

Meanwhile, the Japanese, South Koreans, and the Taiwanese concerns also need to be considered as the Americans would be there representing not just themselves but the wide array of nations that form the Democratic alliance.

There may be reservations ahead of the meeting, but Donald Trump, will have to accept that if he uses his bashfulness, it may cost another prolonged war of sorts that will change the course of the future just the Americans pushed the rise of Islamists.

Keeping the fingers crossed and expecting a broader consultation with the world leaders prior to the meet, we hope that the leaders deal responsibly with the world this time.
