Adityanath invites Kashmiri students to discuss ‘advantages’ of Article 370 abrogation

first_imgUttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has invited Kashmiri students of the Aligarh Muslim University to Lucknow on September 28 to discuss the ‘advantages’ of the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. The invitation has come through the district magistrate and has been conveyed to the university administration which, in turn, has made the students aware of the Chief Minister’s intention to meet 40 Kashmiri students.However, the invitation hasn’t gone down well with the students. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a Ph.D scholar described the move as a “photo opportunity” when the world was watching. He said the invitation did not evoke a positive response among the Kashmiri students as Mr Adityanath’s record vis-a-vis the protection of Muslims was “poor”. When asked if it could be an opportunity to discuss the issue with the political leadership, the student from Anantnag said no political leader from the ruling party had visited the Kashmir Valley since August 5. “We are not the voice of Kashmir and we don’t know what role Mr. Adityanath has in the dialogue on Kashmir. It seems like an attempt to show the world that the ‘cream’ of Kashmir is meeting the political leadership.”He said a few students might turn up for the meeting but the majority saw it as a futile exercise, considering the situation on the ground hadn’t improved. He also reminded that some of the 1000-odd Kashmiri students on the campus hadn’t returned after the August 5 clampdown. AMU spokesperson, Shafey Kidwai said the message had been conveyed to the students. “The university will make arrangements for those who want to go to Lucknow. However, we are not putting any pressure on them.” A similar invitation has also been sent to district magistrates of Ghaziabad and Gautam Buddh Nagar, where a number of Kashmiri students are studying in private universities.last_img read more

17 days agoRoma boss Fonseca: I deserved to be sent off, but…

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Roma boss Fonseca: I deserved to be sent off, but…by Carlos Volcano17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveRoma boss Paulo Fonseca says he deserved to be sent off in their 1-1 draw with Cagliari.However, he insists Nikola Kalinic’s late goal should have stood.Fonseca said, “I didn’t like the referee’s attitude throughout the game. I could speak about the non-existent foul given against Diawara, or the incident for Cagliari’s penalty, and then the goal at the end by Kalinic.“I accept his decision to send me off, I deserved that. But on the goal it seems strange to me that the referee would tell the Cagliari players there wasn’t a foul. I don’t know why he changed his mind.“The guys played well, they created a lot of chances and I think we deserved more than a draw.“What was lacking today was that second goal. We missed a few good openings, it’s hard to say we shouldn’t have done better with them.” last_img read more

Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes will remain grounded until security clearance: China

first_imgBeijing: China said on Tuesday that Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes will not be allowed to fly until their security is guaranteed, as it ruled out any politics behind its decision to ground nearly 100 such aircraft after the deadly Ethiopian Airlines crash. China’s civil aviation regulator on Monday ordered domestic carriers to ground all Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes, citing flight safety, a day after an aircraft of similar model operated by the Ethiopian Airlines crashed in Addis Ababa killing all 157 passengers and crew, including 10 Indians and Indian-origin Canadians. The crash of Ethiopian Airlines plane came five months after another Boeing 737 MAX 8 of Lion Air crashed in Indonesia that killed 189 passengers and crew. Reports said there were similarities between the Ethiopian and Indonesian air crashes as they both occurred during take-off, involving new aircraft that had just been delivered. Apart from China, Indonesia and Ethiopia have also ordered the airlines to ground their Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes. “As for China, the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC) has said that they will stay in touch with the US and Boeing,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a media briefing here. After guaranteeing the security of the aircraft, they will resume operations. So we don’t have a time table yet. “Only after we confirm that there is no risk for security can we resume their operation. It is shows our sense of responsibility for passenger safety,” he said. In a bid to rule out any politics behind China’s decision, Lu pointed to several other countries and airlines that have grounded the particular aircraft after Sunday’s accident due to safety concerns. “First I want to emphasise not only the CAAC but also many countries in the world and regions are grounding the commercial operations of this aircraft after the accident,” he said. China and the US, the world’s two largest economies, are locked in a trade war since Trump imposed heavy tariffs on imported steel and aluminium items from China in March last year, a move that sparked fears of a global trade war. Trump imposed tariff hikes of up to 25 per cent on USD 250 billion of Chinese goods. In response, China imposed tit-for-tat tariffs on USD 110 billion of American goods. Top trade officials from America and China are holding talks to negotiate a comprehensive trade deal.last_img read more
