Killings of political workers in WB alarming: HM

Posted on 31 December 2010 by admin

AIHRA News, Saturday 1 January, 2011.

(PTI) In the continuing letter war, Home Minister P Chidambaram has described the killings of political workers in West Bengal as “alarming” and said that the violence point to a virtual collapse of law and order in some parts of the state.

He also said he used the word ‘Harmad’ (hired killers) in an earlier letter because of its extensive usage in the media, but said he would use any other word to describe armed cadres if the West Bengal Chief Minister suggested one.

Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had taken strong exception to the use of the “nasty” word ‘Harmad’ in Chidambaram’s letter last week. It is a word CPI-M’s principal opponent Trinammol Congress uses to describe the communist party’s cadre.

In a letter written to Bhattacharjee yesterday, copy of which was released today, Chidambaram said it was “not a happy situation” considering the level of violence in the state.

AIHRA News, Friday 31 December, 2010.

(PTI) Against the backdrop of unease in BJP over pursuance of 2G probe by Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee, its Chairman M M Joshi today associated himself with his party’s demand for JPC into the issue of corruption during UPA-II, saying he was “fully committed” to it.

In a statement issued a day after his reported meeting with BJP President Nitin Gadkari, Joshi sought to clear doubts in his party by saying that the PAC would be looking into only the aspect of accountability in public spending with regard to 2G spectrum allocation.

“As a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party, I stand fully committed to the demand for the formation of Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to look into the broader questions related to corruption facing the country today,” Joshi said.

Posted on 29 December 2010 by admin

AIHRA News, Thrusday 30 December, 2010.

(PTI) India and China engaged in intense diplomatic activities on issues like stapled visas to Kashmiris and trade imbalance in 2010, a year which culminated with a fence-mending visit of Premier Wen Jiabao to New Delhi.

It was perhaps an unusual year in bilateral ties as Tibet and Taiwan, which get mandatory mention in every international document signed by China, failed to figure in the joint statement issued after Wen’s high-profile visit to India from December 15 to 17, during which he promised to address New Delhi’s concerns on stapled visas

In India, Wen also offered to open the tightly-controlled Chinese markets to India’s prime products like IT and pharmaceuticals to address New Delhi’s concerns on the growing trade deficit of nearly USD 16 billion.
