The Army increased its presence on the streets of the capital, and blocked roads with tanks and flew in fighter jets over the city after lootings and arson were witnessed.

Spectrum-licence delinked, mobile tariffs may go up

Posted on 29 January 2011 by admin

AIHRA News, Sunday 30 January, 2011.

(PTI) In a major shift in policy that may make mobile telecom services costly, Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal today said henceforth all operators would have to pay market price for initial as well additional spectrum.

Delinking spectrum from the licences in the aftermath of the 2G scam, Sibal said, “In future, the spectrum will not be bundled with licence. The licence to be issued to telecom operators will be in the nature of ‘Unified Licence’ and the licence holder will be free to offer any of the multifarious telecom services.

“In the event, the licence holder would like to offer wireless services, it will have to obtain spectrum through a market driven process,” he told a press conference.

AIHRA News, Sunday 30 January, 2011.

(PTI) Showing no signs of quitting, embattled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak today sacked his government as thousands of protesters defied curfew demanding an end to his 30-year-old autocratic rule.

In a late night televised speech, 82-year-old Mubarak defended the actions of police, who had tried to clamp down the protesters by firing tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannons at them.

Mubarak, who has ruled Egypt for three decades, asked his cabinet to resign and promised reforms.

“I have asked the government to present its resignation and tomorrow there will be a new government,” he said.

“We will not backtrack on reforms. We will continue with new steps which will ensure the independence of the judiciary and its rulings, and more freedom for citizens,” he said.

Thomas should not have been made CVC: Advani

Posted on 28 January 2011 by admin

AIHRA News, Saturday 29 January, 2011.

Senior BJP leader L K Advani today supported his colleague Sushma Swaraj’s stand against the appointment of CVC P J Thomas, saying he could not have been chosen for the post as he had cases pending against him.

“This controversy started even when I was the Leader of the Opposition. I told them (government) that wherever this law that Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha should be there in the panel with the government they used to give only one name. I told them I will not accept unless you give a panel (of names),” Advani told reporters.

He maintained that in the case of Thomas’ appointment as CVC, the government tried to do the same by insisting on his name despite zeroing in on a panel of three candidates.

Panel gives clean chit to RSS in attacks on churches

Posted on 28 January 2011 by admin

AIHRA News, Saturday 29 January, 2011.

(PTI) In a relief to ruling BJP, a one-man judicial commission has given a clean chit to the B S Yeddyurappa government and Sangh Parivar groups in the series of attacks on churches in Karnataka in 2008.

The commission in its report submitted today cited circulation of derogatory literature with “insulting attitude” against Hindus and issues of conversion as the main reasons for the attacks, which had caused a huge embarrassment to the first ever BJP government in the south.

In its findings, the commission headed by Justice B K Somasekhara said there were clear indications of conversions in seven districts by a few organisations and “self-styled or self-appointed pastors” by “inducements” and as “a commercial bargain using unaccounted local and foreign funds”.

Somasekhara, who submitted his findings to Chief Minister Yeddyurappa, however, cleared allegations of conversions made against Roman Catholic churches.
