Only Modi can ensure national security: Shah

first_imgBalrampur/Dumariyaganj: BJP president Amit Shah Thursday said Narendra Modi should be brought back as prime minister as only he can ensure national security. Shah also accused the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party of favouring certain castes and working for them, and stressed contrary to this, the BJP believes in the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. Wielding the nationalism plank as he addressed multiple election rallies, the BJP chief told people that only Modi is capable of keeping the country safe and teaching terrorists a lesson, as he described Modi as a “man with 56 inch chest”.

The BJP president spell out the central government’s development and welfare projects such as providing free LPG connections, health insurance under Ayushman Bharat, construction of toilets, but it was his emphasis on the national security that drew loudest response from the crowd. He also jeered opposition leaders- from “Rahul baba” to “Akhilesh babu”- alleging the Balakot air strikes caused as much deep sorrow in their offices as in Pakistan because they feared their “vote banks” will be upset with the attacks on terrorist camps in the neighbouring country.

But if there is one issue for which you have to ensure that Modi returns as prime minister, then it is national security. Only he can ensure the national security,” Shah said at Balrampur. When terrorists from across the border would target Indian soldiers, there would not be any reaction from the then Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh, he alleged, attacking the opposition. Targeting the SP-BSP alliance, he said both regional parties are devoted to casteism and family rule and only worked for development of one caste or another when they ruled Uttar Pradesh separately for over two decades. Addressing an election meeting in Balrampur in support of party candidate Daddan Mishra, the BJP president said, “The SP and BSP are casteist and dynastic parties. When one party was in power, it favoured a specific caste and worked for it. “Similarly, when the second (party) was in power, it favoured another caste. The work of the society took a backseat,” he said. But, on the contrary, he said, “The BJP believes in mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, and it never asked the caste (of any person) while undertaking developmental work.” They never worked for the development of society, he said, asserting the BJP government under Yogi Aadityanath has been working for the progress of all sections of society since it came to power in 2017. Seeking vote in the prime minister’s name, Shah claimed that Modi had not taken leave in 20 years and worked for 18 hours a day. Taking a dig at rival leaders, he said Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav go on vacation in foreign countries when the weather hots up. Showering praises on Prime Minister, Shah said, “The Modi-Modi slogan, which can be heard across the country, is mot merely an election slogan. This is the blessings of the countrymen on Modiji. The slogan tells that, when counting of votes will take place on May 23, Modiji will be the next Prime Minister.” Shah also alleged that during the tenure of the SP, the BSP and the Congress, the poor people could not afford treatment in absence of money. “Modiji brought Ayushman Bharat Yojana,” he said, claiming that within four months lakhs of people have availed of the benefit of free treatment. “The poor people have got a right to live,” he said. Referring to the law and order situation in the state, the BJP chief said, “Earlier it was the policemen, who were afraid of criminals. But, after Yogi Adityanath came to power, the criminals have started fearing the police and are requesting the cops to arrest them and not kill them in encounters.” He also accused the past governments of the SP and the BSP of turning a blind eye to land grabbers. “After the formation of the Yogi Adityanath government, work of protecting the land of the poor has started. We have also put an end to illegal abattoirs in the state,” he said. “The security of the country is of top priority to us. If a bullet (goli) comes to us from Pakistan, our people will retaliate with a shell (golaa),” he said amid applause from the crowd. Shah also claimed that UP during the Sonia-Manmohan era got Rs 3.30 lakh crore, whereas when Modi became the prime minister, UP got funds amounting to Rs 10.27 lakh crore. The BJP chief also mentioned that it was the saffron party, which gave 10 per cent reservation to the economically weaker sections without disturbing the quota for the backward people. Shrawasti, spread over Bhinga, Shrawasti, Tulsipur, Gainsari and Balrampur assembly segments, goes to polls on May 12 in the sixth phase.last_img read more

Teenager to be charged with assault after Syrian refugee is allegedly attacked

Police investigating attack on ‘Syrian refugee’ at Huddersfield school (pictured) as £30,000 raised for bullying victimCredit:Google Responding to a tweet by Jake Humphrey, urging people to donate to the fundraising effort as opposed to directing anger at the alleged attacker, the Dane said he would like to “show his love”. The incident is said to have taken place on playing fields at Almondbury Community School in Huddersfield on October 25.In statement West Yorkshire Police said: “Regarding the assault on a 15-year-old youth in Almondbury, which featured in a video posted on social media yesterday and has been widely reported in the media, a 16-year-old youth has been interviewed and reported for summons, for an offence of assault. He will appear at Youth Court in due course.”The incident occurred on 25 October this year and has been subject to thorough investigation since it was reported to us the day after. The victim and his family are receiving ongoing support from police and other agencies.”Media are reminded that proceedings are active and involve a juvenile. We would advise not to share the video on websites or social media sites as it could prejudice future criminal proceedings. Safeguarding measures have been put in place for the victim and his family. Police investigating attack on 'Syrian refugee' at Huddersfield school (pictured) as £30,000 raised for bullying victim Footballer Jonas Lössl, who plays as a goalkeeper Huddersfield Town, expressed his sympathy with the boy in the video, and invited him to a Premier League game as his guest.  “A previous unconnected incident on 7 October, in which the victim suffered a wrist injury, was also fully investigated at the time. Three youths were interviewed. There was no further police action and the matter was referred to the school.” In a letter to parents on Wednesday, Almondbury Community School headteacher Trevor Bowen said: “The safety and welfare of students is our number one priority and I can assure you that this situation is being taken extremely seriously.”Mr Bowen said: “Since the incident occurred in October, the school, the local authority and the police have all taken action. We must allow the legal process to take its course, but I want to be absolutely clear that we do not tolerate unacceptable behaviour of any sort in our school.”I can also assure you that we are working very hard to ensure it is ‘business as usual’ across the school and that there is no disruption to the children’s education.”Dr Lisa Doyle, Director of Advocacy at the Refugee Council, said: “We are utterly shocked and appalled by the attack on a 15-year-old boy who came to the UK in search of safety.”The idea that someone escapes war and brutality, only to be met with violence here, is truly awful. We have been heartened by the fantastic outpouring of support from many members of the British public who are sending a clear message that nobody in our community should be treated in this way.” Police are to charge a 16-year-old boy with assaulting a 15-year-old boy after a violent video caused outrage on social media.The alleged victim, who is reported to be a refugee from Syria and has his arm in a cast, is seen to be dragged by his neck before being “waterboarded”.A clip that appeared online on Tuesday purports to show an assailant aim a headbutt at the victim, who is stood by himself on what appears to be Almondbury Community School’s playing fields in Huddersfield. The alleged aggressor repeatedly taunts the boy, named as Jamal, by getting in his face and saying, “say it now, then,” over and over again, according to the video.Eventually, the alleged attacker grabs his much smaller victim’s neck with both hands and throws him to the ground and held on his back. As a group gathers to watch, the alleged bully takes a water bottle and appears to force its contents into the boy’s mouth, saying, “I’ll drown you”. The alleged victim then walks away, without reacting, as the attacker and others can be heard continuing to verbally abuse him.In an outpouring of support, a fundraising page received more than £50,000 in donations in a day for the boy shown in the video.The incident sparked fury on social media, with some media outlets reporting the attacker’s mother had appeared in court last year on a charge related to racist abuse.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

He appears not to have been the only victim, with a fresh video emerging of a hijab-wearing girl pushed down a grass verge and shoved by a group.The family’s lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, said it is the boy’s 14-year-old sister and she was attacked on Tuesday morning.West Yorkshire Police said: “We have been made aware of a video showing a girl being assaulted at Almondbury Community School yesterday (27/11).”The incident had not previously been reported to the police but we are now liaising with the girl’s family who we are continuing to support.”Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact Kirklees District CID via 101.”Barry Sheerman, MP for the town, said he had been supporting the boy and his family.He tweeted: “Video of assault against one of my constituents absolutely shocking. Have been supporting the family since it was first brought to my attention.” Jonas Lossl's tweet Jonas Lossl’s tweetCredit:Jonas Lossl/Twitter read more

Column Drug crime cant be broken down simply into a battle of

first_imgIT MAY SEEM obvious, but the first challenge for all of us trying to tackle drug use and criminality is to care. As George Bernard Shaw said: indifference is the essence of inhumanity.Firstly I want to plant a thought into your heads before returning to it later. Writing in the Guardian newspaper last year, the author Neil Gaiman told how he once attended a lecture organised by private prison operators in the United States. In planning for the future capacity needs in this service 15 years into the future, the prison industry employed a very simple test – the percentage of 10 and 11 year old children in any given district with acute literacy problems.The link between educational underachievement, social empowerment and a drugs and crime culture is real and also extremely complex. There are no simple ways to describe the problem, to address it or to solve it. It is my contention that it is only a society ill at ease with itself – rife with inequalities visible and invisible, refusing to challenge or to re-invent itself – that is destined to produce a culture that is so vicious and so deadly and causes so much human hurt and suffering.Using simplistic, evocative, exploitative or sensationalist language does not inform the discussion. In my view, it turns what is a public policy emergency into comicbook-style pseudo-entertainment.A battle of ‘good’ versus ‘evil’It is easier to paint this struggle as a battle of good versus evil, of decent citizens versus so-called ‘scumbags’. When we engage in that type of simplistic characterisation we are destined never to properly address the complexities at hand.However middle-class Ireland needs to hear that is a simple case of bad people doing bad things. It makes them feel safer and more secure – and that they are not in any way culpable for living in a society where such violent acts occur and such a cancerous vice like the drugs trade exists.They are told that there are bad areas where bad people do bad things to each other. And as long as they are fed that line, then the status quo will remain. It doesn’t really matter as long as they are shooting each other. This rhetoric suits many vested interests, including journalists and conservative politicians. Poorer people are not politically or commercially advantageous and so can be easily disregarded.What is more challenging is to ask what has happened in our country to create a parallel economy of a drugs trade which attracts, empowers and effectively employs so many.Why is it that, if you spend time observing proceedings in the district court, you will be presented with case after case of recidivist criminals caught in a hopeless spiral of drug-related crime, which they were sucked into at such a young age and which will continue to blight their lives for the years to come?Why do most of Irish society pretend that it has nothing to do with them?It is important to sketch out the type of society that we live in before we discuss the nature of drug crime and what an organised response might look like.A society where 30% of children in disadvantaged areas have basic reading problemsWhere almost one-fifth of our adult population are functionally illiterateWhere in some poorer areas 25% of young mothers suffer from maternal depressionWhere 21% of children go to school or to bed hungry every day.We work hard to keep ourselves separatedIf these statistics surprise you, or if they cause you little upset, then unfortunately you are part of the problem.What we have constructed in Ireland is a society where we work as hard as we can to keep ourselves separated from each other. This is the antithesis of what a Republic should stand for. Surely we should strive to live in a society that works to fulfil the needs of all our people, that believes in solidarity and justice, and that an injury to one is the concern of all.Our fascination with separation permeates through every area of Irish public policy. Think education, think housing, think healthcare. What we strive for as individuals is an individualistic approach that separates: we want schools that separate, hospitals that separate and housing policy that separates.If you are on the right side of that separation or that division, you can be sure that life may work out fine for you. However if you’re not, life will be more difficult, you may be presented with choices that others never encounter, your frustration may grow, your inability to access the other side of the line may fester within you, your crimes are more public and more obvious because you are poorer, and eventually you will be called a ‘scumbag’ to simplify the issue. Your actions overtake you, some which may have been handed down to you, many which you will hand down yourself to others. But you’re just a scumbag.It’s simpler for those on the right side of the line to blame others for their own disadvantage, their own poverty and for slipping into their own despair.Our hang-up on home ownershipOur post-colonial hang up on home ownership, which is unmatched anywhere in a European context, ensures that social housing units are clustered, often not integrated resulting in social isolation and marganisation. Once an individual get a mortgage, they will protect that investment with all their might, against anything that may affect it, be that council housing units, or localised medical treatment for people with a clear identifiable medical need.The housing policy of constructing flat complexes with poor or virtually no social infrastructure in the 40s, 50s and 60s was compounded in the bubble economy of recent times, when their potential rejuvenation was left to the jungle-law of market forces under Public-Private Partnerships. And what happened to the much heralded new dawns for O’Devaney Gardens, Croke Villas, St Michael’s House, Dominic Street flats, St Michin’s House? Stalled, abandoned or shelved.As a society, we do not want to allow people to live together. We prefer to create areas of social disadvantage because it benefits the property owners and the market. We refuse to invest in them over generations, we refuse to improve their living conditions as a matter of public policy from the public purse and then we are somehow bemused that out of such areas comes a sense of disillusionment and disconnection, and within that a small minority of people who will engage in a parallel economy to seek empowerment and to fulfil their personal ambitions.They don’t vote so we don’t care. They don’t spend so the market economy doesn’t care. And markets, as we know, have no conscience.Everyone seeks significance. From the face of a loved one. From colleagues. From family, From friends. It is our most basic need to feel valued. If you feel in your core that you are not valued by the education system, by the judicial system, by media or politicians – are you expected to work hard to gain respect? Or do you become the best of the worst of what society expects of you? And when role-models in business, banking, politics, church and police show time and again to have elements of corruption that goes unpunished, why are you expected to behave yourself? To get on the other side of the line? To lie, to cheat, to kill but merely with a nicer suit and a more polished accent and within the realm of respectability?Our failure to invest in pre-school educationI have said many times that the greatest policy failure in Ireland is our failure to invest in pre-school education. It makes no economic sense, it makes no educational sense in terms of developmental impact. The greatest return on resources is on the first 1,000 days of a child’s life. It is the opposite of where we spend money in Ireland.The Hart and Risley report of 1995 showed that a three year old from a welfare dependent family has one third the oral language capability of a three year old from a professional family. If we know this, how are we supporting that child? How are we supporting its parents? Or are we waiting for it to inevitably become part of the research data for those who plan prison spaces?We must challenge the contention that educational underachievement is a schooling concern. All of us will know that the supportive parent has the biggest influence on the educational attainment of a young person. The cultural divide between the aspiration of the classroom and the reality of the home can be extremely wide. That is why we need to think differently about the way we approach educational empowerment. It cannot be merely about what we want middle class teachers to do with working class children from the age of 4 onwards from 9 in the morning till the early afternoon.We discredit ourselves by claiming to be land of saints and scholars; to laud out literary heritage; to celebrate Joyce, Beckett, Yeats and Wilde but fail to address intergenerational illiteracy. Why don’t we commit ourselves completely as others have, to the total eradication of illiteracy.My Right to Read campaign which I launched in 2006 attempts to bridge this gulf. By making the scourge of illiteracy the responsibility of every state agency, most especially local authorities who house our more disadvantaged children, who manage their social infrastructure and who crucially deliver the public library service.Caitlin Moran, the British feminist writer calls public libraries the Cathedrals of Our Souls. She writes:A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination.On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead. A human with a brain and a heart and a desire to be uplifted, rather than a customer with a credit card and an inchoate “need” for “stuff.” A mall–the shops–are places where your money makes the wealthy wealthier.But a library is where the wealthy’s taxes pay for you to become a little more extraordinary, instead. A satisfying reversal. A balancing of the power. Underserving the politically weakOur attempts at treating crime and drug dependency regularly fall at the wayside of political expediency. The National Drugs Strategy demands that addicts are treated within their own community, and recognises their challenge as a medical condition that demands treatment. Yet how often have local representatives lobbied against any drug treatment centre or facility being located in their community. They know that those with addictions are politically week, have no voting power and don’t have access to main-stream media to plead their case.I do not and will not excuse the actions of those who kill, maim or intimidate in the interest of greed, financial gain or for a perverse lust for power. The grip of drug gangs is poisonous, their influence menacing. The mental trauma caused in a community after a shooting is enormous. I have worked it, I have lived it, I work everyday to change it. To condemn however is not enough.But before such individuals became classified as a sub-species, they were babies and then children with choices ahead of them that others would never be presented with.Our task in the short term is to reduce recidivist drug crime. It is achievable, and it will benefit all in society but does society believe this issue to be serious enough for us to care. Let us challenge our humanity, and not surrender to our indifference.This article has been adapted from a speech given by Aodhán Ó Ríordáin during a seminar on crime in the Seanad last week.Aodhán Ó Ríordáin is a Labor TD in Dublin Bay North.

Samsung may be working on an Android flip phone

first_imgAbout the only thing missing from Samsung’s army of Android devices is a good old-fashioned flip phone. According to a report out of Korea, that may change in the very near future.The new flipper — which is reportedly called the Galaxy Folder — is said to feature an 800×480 display and a Snapdragon S4 processor. Clearly, it’s not a device that’s intended to appeal to Android power users. It’s more likely to be marketed at the same people who buy Samsung’s existing flip phones; people who are more interested in the phone than the smart.While a Galaxy flip phone might sound like a non-starter at first blush, it could actually be a wildly popular device. BlackBerry certainly thought there was a market for a phone like this, and Sharp actually offered up a high-end Android version (the Hybrid 007SH). Samsung ought to be able to put a relatively low price tag on its device, and that alone will be enough to generate interest in emerging markets, with older mobile users, and with the growing number of consumers who like the idea of pairing a dumb(ish) phone with a connected tablet. And since the Folder would be running Android, it would probably ship with Samsung’s custom apps. That means you’d still be able to chat and share files painlessly with your friends who own a more high-end Galaxy device like the GS4 or Galaxy Note 2.At this point, it’s hard to imagine Samsung not building a Galaxy phone like this. The Samsung and Galaxy brands are incredibly popular, and there’s still good money to be made selling low-end mobile phones.Let’s just hope the name isn’t set in stone. Even Galaxy Flip sounds better than Galaxy Folder.last_img read more

Bisphénol A définitivement interdit dans les biberons

first_imgBisphénol A : définitivement interdit dans les biberonsFrance – La fabrication et la commercialisation de biberons contenant du bisphénol A sont officiellement interdites en France depuis hier, suite au vote d’une loi par l’Assemblée nationale.Cette interdiction ne concerne que les biberons, tous les autres plastiques à base de bisphénol A (BPA) même alimentaires restent autorisés. Un débat devrait tout de même avoir lieu en 2011 sur cette question.À lire aussiPourquoi le café donne-t-il envie de faire caca ?Le bisphénol A est un perturbateur endocrinien, dont les effets sont encore plus néfastes lorsqu’il est chauffé. Après ce premier pas, de nombreux organismes demandent son interdiction totale. Il est en effet présent dans de nombreux emballages alimentaires comme des récipients plastiques, les revêtements intérieurs des boîtes de conserve…Avant de mettre en place une interdiction totale, le gouvernement souhaite bénéficier de plus amples informations. Les données scientifiques sur le sujet sont en effet incertaines, notamment en ce qui concerne une consommation du produit en quantité très faible. Quoi qu’il en soit, certaines études ont démontré que le BPA augmentait le risque de développer un cancer de la prostate ou du sein ainsi que les risques d’obésité, de diabète, de dysfonctionnement thyroïdien et de troubles du comportement et de la reproduction.

France Nature Environnement dénonce la censure de sa campagne choc

first_imgFrance Nature Environnement dénonce la censure de sa campagne chocL’association France Nature Environnement (FNE) a vu sa campagne contre l’agriculture intensive qui devait être mise en place dans les stations de métro d’Odéon, de Montparnasse et de Saint-Lazare à Paris, censurée. France Nature Environnement, fédération d’associations environnementales, s’était vue attaquée par Inaporc et Interverb, des syndicats d’agriculture porcine et bovine. La fédération avait gagné devant le tribunal et avait ainsi obtenu le droit d’afficher les six visuels qui visaient à dénoncer l’agriculture intensive. Or, trois d’entre eux sont toujours absent des stations de métro parisiennes où ils devaient apparaître. Métrobus, la régie pub de la RATP, a estimé que “ces visuels très dénigrants sont contraires au principe de neutralité du service public”.FNE souhaite simplement que la “demande que l’affichage prévu soit respectée et s’indigne de devoir ainsi pousser un cri d’alarme face à cette censure”. Le tribunal avait en effet donné raison à a fédération, estimant que la campagne ne contenait aucune attaque personnelle ; de plus l’ARPP (Autorité de régulation professionnelle de la publicité) elle-même avait donné son feu vert.Les visuels n’apparaissant pas comme prévu sont ceux où l’on peut voir un épi de maïs OGM pointé sur la tempe d’un homme, un enfant jouant au milieu d’algues vertes ou encore une parodie de l’affiche du film Kill Bill de Quentin Tarantino où trône un bidon de pesticides estampillé “Kill bees”.  “Nous avons choisi cette mise en scène car nous avons besoin que l’opinion publique soit derrière nous. Mais le message de fond n’est pas original : depuis quarante ans nous disons qu’il faut changer de modèle agricole”, explique le porte parole de FNE Benoît Hartman, cité par 20minutes.fr. “Le grand public sait qu’il existe un autre type d’agriculture mais qu’il est minoritaire. L’avenir est à une agriculture moderne et raisonnable avec moins d’intrants et cette campagne est destinée à faire évoluer les pratiques et les lois”, ajoute-t-il.À lire aussiA cause de l’Homme, ces singes du Costa Rica changent de couleurDe leur côté, les éleveurs se sentent sans cesse attaqués et critiqués “quoi qu’ils fassent.

Le Bisphénol A accusé davoir des effets néfastes sur lembryon

first_imgLe Bisphénol A accusé d’avoir des effets néfastes sur l’embryonDéjà interdit dans les biberons, le Bisphénol A est accusé d’avoir un impact négatif réel sur le développement de l’embryon.Nouvelle révélation concernant le Bisphénol A. Après avoir été interdit dans les biberons, accusé de pénétrer par la peau, et d’altérer et d’appauvrir le sperme et ainsi entrainer des difficultés de reproduction, le composé pourrait également avoir un impact négatif sur le développement de l’embryon.C’est la conclusion à laquelle sont parvenus les chercheurs du CNRS (Centre national de la recherche scientifique) et de l’Inserm (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) qui ont publié une étude sur le sujet dans la revue BMC Developmental Biology. Ainsi, il est apparu que le Bisphénol A causait des anomalies dans l’oreille interne des embryons de poissons zèbre et xénopes (grenouille) soumis à différentes concentrations du composé. Les chercheurs restent tout de même prudents, expliquant qu’il est difficile de tirer des conclusions concernant l’homme. Pour autant, les auteurs de l’étude expliquent : “Ces travaux démontrent clairement qu’outre ses effets reprotoxiques, le bisphénol A, à des doses assez élevées, agit aussi sur le développement embryonnaire. Ils révèlent également que les cibles d’action de ce composé sont plus nombreuses que ce que l’on pensait jusqu’à présent. Enfin, ils ouvrent de nouvelles perspectives de recherche afin de caractériser le fonctionnement du bisphénol A et d’évaluer correctement ses effets”.Le 10 mars 2011 à 14:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more
