Governance

"I want to say that if NDA (BJP-led National Democratic Alliance) is voted to power, we will pursue this issue at legal and executive level and force Indian citizens to bring back their wealth to the country," Advani said, citing the "crusade" by western countries against tax havens provided by Swiss banks.

Great grand-mother of all scams

Governance

The poll-eve race among political parties to promise foodgrains at cheap rates to poor people, when implemented, is counter-productive, warns the Justice D P Wadhwa Committee in its report submitted to the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
    

Retail chains - good or bad?

BMTC buses on traffic police radar

Voter Harassment Centres

I am really disgusted with the month-long running around I have had to do. You are almost tempted to exclaim, as one 70-year-old gentleman in front of us did, "If this is what I have to undergo to register...and then vote for some rowdy-sheeter who is standing for election to make money, why should I bother? "...and go home.....

State gets its ‘act’ together, hopefully

Governance

After an interminably long sitting on tabling of the Karnataka Police Act for more than a year, the state government has decided to implement the Act through an executive order to avoid a possible embarrassment when the monitoring committee set up by the Apex Court would come for a visit later this month.

Plain high-handedness

Governance

First they were arrested for the mere offence of partying in a farmhouse and put in jail. Then they were accused of consuming drugs without any trace of evidence. But their woes did not end there.

Bescom ordered to pay Rs-50 compensation for long outage

Power

Consumer power rests on knowing your rights. You may remember cursing Bescom when there was a 21-hour power outage on April 29 and 30 last year. But this 73-year-old man did something more - he found out there is a provision for consumers to get compensation if power supply is interrupted beyond certain hours.
 

Miscarriage of justice

Governance

Whereas the magistrate should have been pulling up the police for not charging the perpetrators of the violent incidents targeted at women under more stringent sections, it is totally shocking that he has instead chosen to direct the police to register an FIR against Ms Renuka Chowdhry, and all just for stating that "Mangalore has been Talibanised".

Face up to the goons!

This shocking, yet at some level encouraging, tale is reported by a friend who knows Sugata Chatterjee the rapporteur of this shocker...Boohoo to ramsene and ... their ilk. Down with obscuranist politicians and moral police, 3 cheers to sugata Chatterjee for standing up.
