The Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist) Chairman said that Deuba who is in India on a five-day visit made a mockery of the decision taken by lawmakers of Nepal regarding the

India visit Washington: Expressing concern over initial indications that the Uri terror attack emanated from Pakistan two influential US Senators on Thursday called on Islamabad to fully cooperate with India to bring to justice the perpetrators Representational image PTI "We are greatly concerned about initial indications that the perpetrators of this attack were Pakistani and that the attack emanated from Pakistan If true this attack would be just the latest in a series of deadly attacks in India conducted by Pakistan-based terrorist groups" Democrat John Cornyn and Republican Mark Warner said in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi They also called on Pakistan to cooperate fully with India to bring to justice perpetrators of the Uri attack at an army base in Jammu and Kashmir in which 18 soldiers were killed "We call on the Government of Pakistan to cooperate fully and transparently in this investigation and prosecute any individuals within its territory that participated in this horrendous attack" the two Senators wrote in the letter dated September 29 a copy of which was seen by PTI Cornyn and Warner are the co-chairs of the Senate India Caucus the only country-specific caucus in the US Senate "Pakistan’s possible involvement in this attack underscores our broader concern about Pakistan’s use of terrorism as a pillar of its foreign policies toward Afghanistan and India" they wrote in the letter to express their support for India and strongly condemn the Uri attack "As many credible experts have noted such groups as the Haqqani network Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad still operate freely in Pakistan launching attacks not only on India but also on US personnel and interests in Afghanistan" "That such terrorist groups continue to operate within Pakistan is unacceptable and we will work within Congress to pressure Pakistan to end any association with these terrorist groups targeting India put a stop to their cross-border incursions and take active and immediate steps to reign in homegrown terrorists" the two Senators wrote Expressing their deep condolences to the soldiers who were injured and the families of those who were killed they said they stand with Modi and the people of India as they fight the global scourge of terrorists who seek to destroy the way of life and values and threaten democratic societies "The continued threat of terrorism that both India and the US face highlights the critical need to ensure that we continue to expand US-India bilateral defence intelligence and counter-terrorism cooperation" Cornyn and Warner said Cornyn and Warner welcomed the declaration of India as a major defence partner last year’s signing of the Defence Framework Agreement and continued deepening of the Defence Technology and Trade Initiative "Similarly we are pleased by the finalisation of an arrangement to facilitate the sharing of terrorist screening information and the progress made by the US-India Counter-terrorism Joint Working Group and the Homeland Security Dialogue We will continue to support these and other initiatives that will increase US partnership with India against terrorism" the Senators wrote Extending their condolences Warner and Cornyn told Modi that the Senate India Caucus stands with him and that they will not allow terrorists to sway their shared commitment to fostering greater peace and promoting democracy in the region New Delhi:Sacked BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke cannot be Maharashtra Cricket Association’s representative in BCCI meetings the Lodha committee made it clear on Thursdayin a seven-point response to queries on the administrative reforms made mandatory for the Board There was not much to cheer for Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly either because come June 2017 he will have to go for a compulsory ‘Cooling off’ of 3 years having completed three years at the state association as secretary and president It was also clarified that total tenure in cricket administration (state+BCCI) will be 9 years cumulative and not 18 years as it was mentioned earlier File photo of Ajay Shirke AFP The administrative career of CAB treasurer Biswarup Dey also ends as the post of an assistant secretary that he held for two years will be deemed as an office-bearer’s post which makes his cumulative state association tenure of 10 years The question pertaining to Shirke’s entry was the second among Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Can a disqualified Office Bearer act as the representative/nominee of a Member Association or the BCCI Can such an individual discharge any other role in or on behalf of the Association or the BCCI The answer stated: "In keeping with the spirit of the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s judgement a disqualified office-bearer is no longer to be associated with cricket administration He/She is disqualified from being a representative or nominee of the member association or the BCCI and Cannot discharge any other role in or behalf of the association or the BCCI He/She cannot function within the association in any patron or advisory capacity nor be a member of a committee or council" The FAQ No 7 was directly related to Ganguly whose name was doing rounds for the new BCCI president’s post While he can be a BCCI president but it would only be for a few months if one interprets Lodha Panel’s answer properly The FAQ No 7 states: "If an individual has been an existing office bearer in a State/Member Association for 2 years is he eligible to contest for the next elections without the 3 year cooling off period applying to him If yes what will be the term of his office The answer states: "If at the time of the election the existing office-bearer has not completed a period of 3 years he is eligible to contest the election however he will not have a full term and will have to demit office immediately upon the continuous 3 year period being completed This is to avoid any potential abuse For example if there were no such bar an office bearer could resign after 2 years and 9 months and then claim eligibility to stand at the next election 3 months later on the ground that a new term would commence" Biswarup Dey’s claim that his assistant secretary’s post is a selected and not an elected one has been quashed as it is an office-bearer’s post as per CAB constitution The FAQ No 4: In a State/Member Association if an individual has occupied the post of Assistant Secretary Assistant Treasurer Director or any other post that is not defined as an ‘Office Bearer’ in the Report then will his tenure in those posts be calculated towards the 9 year disqualification The answer: "If the constitution/bylaws of the state/member association has defined the post (assistant secretary assistant treasurer director etc) as an office-bearer post then the tenure of an individual in any of those posts will be reckoned while determining whether the 9 year period has been completed "For example in an association where the Constitution refers to the Assistant treasurer as office-bearer if a person has occupied that post for 3 years and also been secretary for 6 years he stands disqualified" The issues pertaining to elections in state associations and the answer makes it clear that if associations don’t have pending cases against them they can go ahead with elections conforming to the new set of reforms This question concerns Rajasthan CA and Hyderabad CA which are set to have their elections Another question was whether elections can be conducted for the Member Associations before the due amendments are made to their Constitutions/Bye-laws bringing them in line with the judgement The Answer: While there is no bar to the holding of elections (subject to orders of any court) if any election is held which is inconsistent with the committee’s report and the judgement of the Supreme Court then the same will be treated as void and with no legal sanctity This would also necessarily imply that such an election is supervised by an election officer as prescribed under the recommendations "It would be prudent in the circumstances for such elections to be conducted under the guidance of the administrators to be appointed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court" Chattisgarh State Cricket Sangh president Baldeo Bhatia will also have to go for a compulsory cooling off as the period of his state’s associated membership will also be counted However none from the Bihar state body will have to go for ‘cooling off’ as they have not got any sanction from BCCI "There is no connection between the type of membership of the association and the eligibility of the office-bearer Regardless of whether the association was/is a full member or associate/affiliate member the entire tenure of the office-bearer will be calculated towards the 9 year period "However this will not apply to an association which has never been a member of the BCCI In such an event the tenure of the office-bearer will be calculated only from the date of the affiliation unless he had already been the office bearer of another affiliated association" It was also clarified that any member of governing body managing committee or working committee of a state/member association who has never been an office-bearer will not be disqualified after 9 years if the said positions are not mentioned as office-bearers "Such an individual is eligible to contest an office bearer post unless the constitution or Bye-laws of the association defines office-bearers to include the governing body/ managing committee/ working committee members" The most commonly asked question was about how the 9-year tenure would be calculated and the committee made it clear that even a nine-year term in state association would mean end of the road in cricket administration "In view of the order dated 212017 as amended by the order dated 312017 an individual is disqualified from being the office bearer of the BCCI or the state/member association if he/she has been an office bearer of the BCCI or the state/member association for 9 years For example one who has been the office bearers of a state association for 9 years is disqualified from returning to cricket administration either at the BCCI or at any state association similarly one who has been an office bearer at the state for 5 years and then at the BCCI for 4 years is also similarly disqualified India has suffered a huge blow ahead of the first Test against Sri Lanka as opener Murali Vijay has been ruled out of the match with a mild hamstring strain Team Director Ravi Shastri made the announcement in Colombo today the BCCI reported File picture of Murali Vijay (Batting) Getty Vijay picked up the injury during India’s tour of Zimbabwe and didn’t bat in the warm-up game against Sri Lanka Board President’s XI in Colombo There were hopes that he would recover in time but the team management didn’t want to risk aggravating the injury further Vijay has been India’s most consistent batsman since the start of 2014 during which time he has averaged 4704 with three centuries and six half-centuries from 23 innings Overall in 32 Tests Vijay has scored 2338 runs at an average of 4175 In absence of Vijay KL Rahul will likley open the innings alongside Shikhar Dhawan Vijay picked up the niggle in Zimbabwe during India’s recent three-match One-Day International series and T20I series He did not come out to bat in both innings of India’s only warm-up match against Sri Lanka Board President’s XI in Colombo as a precautionary measure India drew the three-day preparatory match "To ensure that the niggle is not further aggravated the Indian team management has decided to give him rest for the first Test starting on August 12 in Galle" Shastri said on Monday Rahul had missed the drawn one-off Test against Bangladesh in June due to dengue He scored a century in his second Test in Sydney against Australia last year Vijay has been India’s most consistent batsman over the last year and a half scoring centuries in England Australia and Bangladesh In 32 Tests Vijay has scored 2338 runs with an average of 4175 and six centuries Shastri said Vijay’s absence is a big blow to the team "He’s the in form player he’s had a fabulous run in Test cricket He will be missed because he’s an experienced player now" Shastri said Vijay underwent fitness drills separately on Monday but it proved he was not fit enough for the first Test With IANS inputs Alpharetta (US): President Donald Trump has attacked his political enemies seeking an upset in Georgia’s special congressional election blasting the leading Democratic candidate as a "super liberal" who "wants to protect criminals allow illegal immigration and raise taxes" Trump did not expound on his unfounded accusations about 30-year-old Jon Ossoff but the president’s Twitter broadside a day before the special primary underscores how big a Democratic victory would be nationwide and in Atlanta’s historically conservative northern suburbs Ossoff who has used anti-Trump sentiments nationally to collect at least USD 83 million in campaign contributions countered yesterday that Trump is "misinformed" but added that he’s "glad the president is interested in the race" Republicans and Democrats alike see the contest as an important barometer of Trump’s standing ahead of 2018 midterm elections when Democrats will try to regain control of Congress The Georgia district represented previously by Trump’s new health secretary Tom Price encompasses reliably Republican territory across parts of three metro Atlanta counties But Trump underperformed here in November barely edging Democrat Hillary Clinton and falling short of a majority In 2012 by contrast Republican nominee Mitt Romney garnered more than 60 per cent of the vote Donald Trump AP Even the leading Republican candidates concede that Ossoff will lead an 18-candidate "jungle primary" that places all candidates on the same ballot The question is whether he can win an outright majority GOP hopeful Karen Handel said yesterday that she is confident enough Republicans will cast ballots to hold Ossoff short of a majority thus setting up a 20 June runoff between the Democratic upstart and today’s top Republican performer "Republican voters are not going to sit by and let this district go to a Democrat" Handel said But the mere possibility has national observers watching closely particularly because the district is dominated by the kind of suburban voters Democrats need to have any chance at a House majority The scrutiny grew even more intense after last week’s special congressional election in Kansas where Republican Ron Estes won by just single-digits in a Wichita-based district that Trump had carried easily On Monday Ossoff continued walking a fine line between embracing the national energy and trying to make the contest a purely local one "This is not about me This is about us" he told a few hundred supporters last night "This is about this community This is about the kind of community we want to live in The kind of country we believe in" Ossoff did not mention his exchange with Trump or call the president by name at all during his remarks Handel a GOP establishment favourite who served previously as Georgia secretary of state also has worked to localise the race "My closing argument is the same as my opening argument that we need an experienced individual with a track record of delivering real results" she said while campaigning on Monday in an upscale shopping district That has made her an outlier among top Republican contenders Wealthy technology executive Bob Gray has cosied up to Trump from the start running ads that show him literally draining a swamp — a nod to one of Trump’s campaign signatures Gray pledges to be a "willing partner" for the new administration Former state Senator Judson Hill is touting his endorsement from Florida Senator Marco Rubio one of a gaggle of Republican presidential hopefuls that Trump vanquished Hill’s campaign is using Rubio on a recorded phone pitch to Republican households Ossoff meanwhile has tried to capitalise on intense anti-Trump sentiments among liberals while still coaxing disaffected independents and moderate Republicans who normally wouldn’t consider voting Democratic Responding to Trump’s tweet Ossoff said in his statement that he is "focused on bringing fresh leadership accountability and bipartisan problem solving to Washington" National Republicans have sought to blunt Ossoff’s momentum by tying him to national Democrats particularly House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi The California Democrat is an unpopular figure in this Georgia district that once sent former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to Capitol Hill Still that message hasn’t come with the same financial muscle as Ossoff’s non-stop television campaign The Congressional Leadership Fund a political action committee backed by House Speaker Paul Ryan has plunked more than USD 2 million into Ossoff attacks an impressive sum but only about a quarter of the Democrat’s campaign haul Ossoff’s quest for an outright victory may depend on low Republican turnout Almost 55000 voters cast early ballots according to the Georgia Secretary of State Various campaigns say they expect somewhere between 100000 and 125000 total votes out of nearly 440000 registered active voters The lower the turnout the greater the chance that Ossoff’s enthusiastic core of support would clear the majority threshold Venezuela opposition plots ‘zero hour’ after big anti-Maduro vote | Reuters World Reuters Jul 17 2017 22:47:11 IST Comment 0 Tweet This story has not been

Wednesday he would consider sending the suspect in the New York bike path attack to the Guantanamo Bay detention centre But just a few hours later the government filed federal terrorism charges against suspect Sayfullo Saipov signaling an intent to prosecute him within the US The one-two developments marked a sharp disconnect between the president and his administration Trump had professed himself to be open to the idea of sending Saipov to Guantanamo in a seemingly off-the-cuff answer to questions from reporters "I would certainly consider that send him to Gitmo" Trump said using the familiar shorthand for the detention centre The White House later reinforced that idea by saying it considered Saipov to be an "enemy combatant" But with the filing of federal charges there was little indication that the threat of Guantanamo was anything more than tough talk No one held within the US has been sent to Guantanamo since the detention centre opened in January 2002 to hold suspected members of Al-Qaeda and the Taliban Still elected officials routinely raise the prospect of doing so after attacks as a way to signal toughness in the fight against terrorism Representational image Getty Images Trump joined those ranks a day after a driver veered into a city bike path in Manhattan killing eight people The president agreed that the US base in Cuba would be an option for Saipov an immigrant from Uzbekistan who authorities say was inspired by the Islamic State The US has to come up with a method of punishment that is "far quicker and far greater than the animals are getting right now" Trump said It is an open question whether the administration could send Saipov to Guantanamo Bay in part because courts have not ruled whether the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force — which permits the government to detain enemy combatants for the duration of a military conflict — applies to the Islamic State and its followers said Stephen Vladeck a national security law professor at the University of Texas at Austin The Islamic State did not exist when the authorisation was passed Vladeck noted that American criminal courts which have secured hundreds of terrorism-related convictions since 11 September have been more efficient than the military tribunal process at Guantanamo Bay Just seven men have been convicted either by trial before military commission or through plea bargains including four whose convictions were later overturned on appeal or invalidated There are another seven held at Guantanamo still facing trial including five men charged in the 9/11 attacks and another accused of orchestrating the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole Those cases are bogged down in pretrial litigation and are likely years from resolution "If the goal is to actually punish the perpetrator then sending him to Guantanamo is just about the worst thing you can do" Vladeck said The only advantage that Guantanamo might have is that men can be held there indefinitely without charge said Bryan Broyles the former chief defence counsel for the commissions which combine elements of military and civilian court "There is no other benefit to Guantanamo" Broyles said "It’s more expensive It’s harder to use It’s slower to use and it lacks the legitimacy in the international community" Amnesty International USA said it would be a "grave mistake" to send Saipov to Guantanamo "He’s a criminal suspect and should be treated as such by the US justice system" said Daphne Eviatar director of the group’s security with human rights program Trump said during the campaign that he wanted to fill Guantanamo with "bad dudes" But the Justice Department last week opted to send a man accused of playing an instrumental role in the 2012 Benghazi attacks to federal court in Washington to face charges — not Guantanamo Similarly the US on Wednesday indicted 36-year-old Mirsad Kandic in federal court in New York Prosecutors say he recruited and facilitated the travel of foreign fighters to join the Islamic State and extradited him from Bosnia In at least a physical sense there are no practical reasons why the US couldn’t hold someone at Guantanamo The detention centre which reached a maximum population of about 680 in the summer of 2003 is now down to just 41 and there is plenty of space for more Asked if there were any plans to add anyone a detention centre spokeswoman had no immediate comment The Pentagon and a base spokeswoman referred questions to the Justice Department Google’s firing of memo writer strikes nerve in Silicon Valley |
