The recently launched Aqua Line has left many residents unimpressed. Residents hoping to have a seamlessly easy travel between the satellite town and Delhi were disappointed to find that there is no connectivity between the Aqua and the Blue Line that connects Noida with Delhi.
The Noida-Greater Noida rail corridor, known as the Aqua line, chugs between Sector 51 in Noida and the Depot Station in Greater Noida. However, to travel to Delhi, commuters have to go to Noida City Centre, which is the nearest Metro station on Blue Line, around six to seven kilometres away from Sector 51. Residents rue that the new rail line has failed to solve the purpose of connecting the two cities due to this reason. “Why would I travel first on Aqua Line and then go to Noida City Centre to board another train? I might as well take the Blue Line straight away to travel to the national capital. It looks like the authorities did not do a feasibility study to understand this basic point,” Pawan Jha, a resident of Sector 135 said. “The Noida Metro Rail Corporation must do something to connect Aqua and Blue lines, otherwise it is of no use to so many of us living here,”Deepali Yadav, another Noida resident said.
Daily passengers also are complaining about the lack of last mile connectivity on the Aqua Line route as well as the peeve of buying two different tickets. “I have no option but to either take an auto or cab to reach Noida City Centre. Till the time they connect Aqua and Blue corridors, the NMRC should provide for last mile connectivity,” says Ragini Kaushal, a resident of Sector 93. Another resident Sanjay Mishra said, “I have to carry two different cards- one of DMRC and another of NMRC. It is very cumbersome. The authorities must address this.”
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday inaugurated Noida’s much-awaited Aqua Line. The Metro line has now linked the twin-cities of Noida and Greater Noida in Gautam Buddh Nagar. There are 21 stations on the corridor, 15 of them in Noida and six in Greater Noida.

The three-time chief minister of the national capital territory of Delhi, 81-year-old Sheila Dikshit is no more.
She breathed her last today at Escorts hospital where she was admitted after a deterioration in her health. Her body has been brought to her Nizamuddin residence and would be placed at All India Congress Committee central headquarter tomorrow morning till 2.30 PM before bidding final adieu thus consigning to flames.
Sheila Dikshit was born in 1938 and was also the minister in PMO during the tenure of late prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. She was the tallest leader of Congress party who was the Delhi Congress president twice and also the president of the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee.
The prime minister Narendra Modi expressed his immense grief over the sad demise at the passing away of Shiela Dikshit terming her the tallest leader and an affable human being. Former president of Congress Rahul Gandhi while expressing his grief over Sheilaji’s sad demise said that the party has lost a daughter of Congress party leaving a huge void difficult to be filled.
The union defence minister Rajnath Singh, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, veteran BJP leader Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi and scores of senior leaders across ideological lines expressed their shock over the sad demise of Sheila Dikshit. It may be recalled that the three-time chief minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit had been immensely instrumental for the revolutionary development of Delhi.
She was in true sense the unstinted leader of the masses who’d dedicated her entire life for the welfare and well being of the society especially for the good of the people of the lowest ebb of the society. Following allegations of corruption, she had lost the Delhi state elections of 2013 after ruling the state for three consecutive terms.

The chief minister of the national capital territory of Delhi and AAP’s national convenor Arvind Kejriwal has made a positive announcement for more than fifty lakh populace of the unauthorized colonies of the capital regarding granting of ownership rights to the house owners through registries.
Till now the sale purchase of lands and houses in the unauthorised colonies was done  through power of attorney which was not fully legally tenable.
This announcement would benefit more than half a crore Delhites living in unauthorised colonies for years under shabby conditions without any adequate civic facilities.
The Delhi government will charge a minimum development charge of merely Rs. 6000 from each house owner before registering their power of attorney.
The Delhi chief minister said that the Delhi cabinet has passed a proposal to this effect and has sent it to the central government for clearance. Kejriwal is of the opinion that it will be duly passed by the central government after posing a few questions which will be clarified in a due course.
He thanked the union government for putting its seal of approval on his government’s recommendation.
In a tweet in Hindi Arvind Kejrival stated:
‘Kachi colonion mein rehne vaale logon ko badhayi. Jald aapko milega apne makaanon ka maalikana haq. Hamari sarkaar ke November 2015 ke prastaav ko kendra sarkaar manjuri dene ko tayyar. Jald registry karne ki tayyariyaan shuru. Dilli ke logon ki ore se kendra sarkaar ka bahut bahut shukriya.’
Translated in English: ‘Congratulations to the people living in unauthorized colonies. Soon you will get the ownership rights for the house you own. The central government is ready to give clearence to our government’s proposal of November 2015. Now, soon there can be a registry of your houses. On behalf of the Delhi people, I thank the central government very much.’
It may be recalled that there is not much time left for the Delhi elections due in February 2020. The Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is, therefore, throwing googlies after googly.
He had recently announced that in Delhi Metro, the women will be provided free travel facility. He had earlier also announced that a 1000 or more electric buses will be introduced in Delhi, which is greater than the commitment of all Indian cities put together. Now this googly from Kejriwal of granting of ownership rights to lakhs of residents of 1727 unauthorized colonies of Delhi.

The Bhartiya Janata Party member of parliament from Delhi and son of the former chief minister of NCT of Delhi  late Sahib Singh Verma, Parvez Sahib Singh met the lieutenant governor of the capital Anil Baijal and submitted him a list of several mosques and Kabristans ( graveyards) on government’s illegally encroached lands and have demanded their vacation as well as severe necessary departmental action against the erring officials as well, under whose jurisdiction and negligence of these religious buildings and graveyards have been arbitrarily constructed.
According to the MP Parvez Sahib Singh Verma, the chief secretary of Delhi and several senior bureaucrats of the concerned departments were also called to his office by the LG.
The LG Anil Baijal had asked the concerned officials to cross-check the list presented by MP Parvez Sahib Singh Verma and submit the detailed report to the LG office at the earliest.
Speaking to media persons MP Verma has said that the Lieutenant governor of Delhi Anil Baijal gave him a patient hearing and assured him to do the needful by verifying his claims and also initiating necessary action against the erring officials if found guilty of negligence in this regard.
When asked by reporters, especially of Aaj Tak about the allegations on him by opposition parties about selectively pursuing the matter of mosques and graveyards thus allegedly doing the politics of religion and not targeting certain temples and Gurudwaras of the majority community built on government lands, Parvez Sahib Singh Verma said that he had asked people to inform him about the mosques and  graveyards being built on illegally encroached government land but has not received any complaints about temples and Gurudwaras built on government land illegally.
The politics have hot up by this selective approach of the BJP MP say sources and questions are being asked by individuals as well as some minority organizations of targetting the minorities willfully which is not acceptable.
This issue is too sensitive as it involves the minorities versus majority implications say, certain political analysts.
Some people say that in case of action is taken on this complaint against mosques and graveyards built on unauthorized government land, the relevant authorities should definitely take due action but then the law should be equal for all religions and religious structures built on encroached land arbitrarily irrespective of any particular religion.
Such matters of religious implications that derive different political connotations should be strictly dealt with by the honorable courts than through political interventions as at the base of religion lies politics say some political analysts.
The protracted issue of Ram Janmabhoomi has not been resolved since several decades despite the intervention of successive governments after independence, finally arriving in the honorable supreme court for final resolution. What’s your take friends?

The chief minister of National Capital Territory of Delhi Arvind Kejrival expressed his serious concern over the increasing deterioration of law and order situation of Delhi with the incidents of rapes, snatchings , murders, gangwars and women assaults going on unabatedly.
He disclosed that the Delhi government has started the process of installing high resolution and highly modernised CCTV cameras in three lakh numbers in various locations of the eleven revenue districts of Delhi in order to control crimes and ensure the women ‘s safety in particular including the safety and security of  of entire Delhi residents.
Answering queries of reporters after launching of the first CCTV camera installation in New Delhi constituency , chief minister Arvind Kejrival said that Delhi despite being the capital of the country has become crime prone as incidents of burglaries,  muders  and women insecurity are on the rise.
On the question of his being soft towards the Delhi police and the centre as compared to his raslier harsh stand despite increase in the crime graph in the capital, Kejriwal asked the reporter as to what does he meant by being soft.
He refused the charge and said that the state government was duly performing its duty and the centre should do its duty to contrl crimes in Delhi.
He said he has recently visited a six year old rape survivor in Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital and met her traumatic parents. The rapist has been caught  within 24 hours.
But had there been CCTV cameras in the area the crime could have been averted as these CCTV cameras work as deterrent for the criminals or anybody committing the wrong acts.
Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal assured that after the installation of three lakh cameras by the Delhi government as promised earlier, the crime rate  would come down considerably as these high resolution cameras will work a the biggest deterrents, prohibiting the criminals to commit crimes.
After the installation of these CCTV cameras the chances of criminals being caught will enhance tremendously thus working as strong deterrents in the near future.
He urged upon the union government and the Delhi police to transparently perform their duties to improve the deteriorating law and order situation in Delhi.

How long will the sewage workers continue to die?

A shocking incident of three possible deaths of vulnerable sewage workers in Keshopur drain in Delhi has once again raised a vital question about the safety of these poor workers who risk their lives entering the most deadly drains for various cleaning and rescue operations.

There had been in total, according to conservative estimates, 666 sanitation workers death from 1993  to 2018 while cleaning sewers which seems to be too less a number according to the All India Safai Karmachari Commission working under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Govt of India.
In terms of providing statistics about the deaths of sanitation workers at the pan India level, the concerned ministry is completely elusive in giving the definite detail which unambiguously shows as to how pathetic and unconcerned  are the concerned departments and government agencies towards these most inhuman deaths.
What is more worrisome and shocking about these sewer deaths is: they are never equipped with life saving jackets, clothes, oxygen cylinders and other relevant equipments including their possible insurance.
During the past few months and years, there had been several deaths of sewer workers working under private and government contractors in Delhi and Noida having been highlighted in the media tremendously.
The Delhi government as well as the ministry concerned have been talking and assuring so much of providing necessary safeguards to the victims but of no avail.
Regarding providing financial compensation too, the private contractors and the government agencies are extremely apathetic.
Most of the sewage cleaning workers belong to the Dalit families with extremely poor financial backgrounds earning two ends meal by cleaning sewers under highly bad and challenging conditions inhaling life taking poisonous fumes devoid of any life saving equipments and jackets getting a negligible amount in return for their hard work.
In the case of the Keshopur, Delhi incident in which one sewer worker Shahruk had died due to asphyxiation while entering in the deep sewer along with two others, now missing but must have died for sure, for welding a mesh inside the deep sewer, has again raised the vital question about the safety of such vulnerable workers in the future.
In the past few years as well, a large number of sanitation workers have died of asphyxiation due to the exposure to poisonous fumes and gases while cleaning sewers several feet down from the ground.
The compensation aspect in such tragedies from the government’s side is also extremely pathetic as the illiterate parents of the dead hardly had connections and knowledge to pursue their respective cases.
On March 24th 2014, the Supreme Court in its judgement of Safai Karmachari Andolan Vs the Union of India directed the government to identify the people who lost their lives while cleaning deadly sewers since 1993 onwards and pay each of the deceased Rs. 10 lakh as monetory compensation, setting a precedence.
But had it really worked is anybody’s guess. Sounds shocking and pathetic that the price of a sewege worker is mere Rs. Ten lakh and that too not sure whether the sewage deceased workers’ bereaved families really get the prescribed compensation as directed by the apex court.
Meanwhile efforts to trace the dead bodies of two sewage workers viz Devinder and Ankit are in full swing inside the Keshopur drain which is several metres long. Divers of NDrF are on the job with the chief minister Arvind Kejrival visiting the accident spot and holding meetings with the concerned officials. The police has arrested the private contractor Sanjay under the relevant sections of the law for not providing the sewer workers the life saving equipments etc mandatory in such cleaning jobs.

The vedio and photographs of the old sikh auto/ gramin sewa driver being mercilessly thrashed by policemen in uniform shamelessly and brutally has gone viral in social media and thereafter in the entire news channels of the country.

People are questioning the integrity of the policemen involved in this brutal act who are supposed to be the custodian of law and order of the capital of India.

Out of the total five, three members of parliament viz Tirath Singh Rawat from Pauri Garhwal constituency, Ajay Tamta, former union minister for textiles and MP from Almora, and BJP Uttarakhand chief and Nainital MP Ajay Bhatt were present on this ocassion.

The union minister HRD and MP Haridwar Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank and Tehri MP Maharani Rajya Lakshmi could’nt make it due to being out of station and abnormal health condition.

The MPs were presented Shawl, bouquets and trophies as a mark of respect by the office bearers of Uttaakhand Film Artists Association.

Rawat said : had the Army chief Vipin Rawat’s family not migrated years ago he would not have been the chief of India army. NSA Ajit Doval, RAW chief Dhasmana and former Chief of Military Intelligence Anil Bhatt etc would not have achieved the the top positions thus enhancing the prestige of Uttarakhand and India.

Therefore constructive migration is must and a positive feature but since now there is no dearth of hospitals, educational institutions and propects of progress in Uttarakhand noe, the hill people should migrate back to villages at all costs.

The chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejrival who is usually at loggerheads with the central government ruled by BJP and the Delhi police which is under the jurisdiction of Ministry of home affairs has expressed his serious concern over the five back to back incidents of killings in various parts of Delhi yesterday.

Delhi Chief minister has tweeted that Five murders have taken place in Delhi in the last 24 hours and is extremely serious situation. I appeal to @ Lt GovDelhi & @ HMO India to urgently look into the law and order situation of the national capital.

The Delhi police taking special note of the Delhi chief minister’s tweet has replied to Arvind Kejrival, Lt governor Delhi and Home minister,, India in the twitter handle of Delhi police : The murders have all been confirmed to be personal enmity related. Accused previously known to victim and already arrested in some cases.

Overall heinous crime in 2019 is down by 10.5% . Crime by use of fire arms are down by 5.65 % . Crime against women are down by 11.5%.

The Delhi police through the tweet meant that it was not the breakdown of the law and order situation or negligence of the Delhi pokice as the five murders in diffetent locations of Delhi took place due to personal animosity, not due to the lack on the part of police authorities. Instead it patted itself saying that the crime graph in the capital has rather come down compared to the previous years.

There is not a iota of doubt that despite the best efforts of the Delhi police incidents of murders, snatchings, thefts and robberies are incessantly happening n peoples’ life in jeopardy.

The solution ratio is comparatively quite less and good number of cases in the context of chain and mobile snatchings including eve teasings and women assaults are also not reported adequately for the apprehension of retaliation from criminals.

You open newspapers every morning and you’ll find number of cases pertaining to frauds, murders, assaults, rapes, chain snatchings and women insecurity.

The shortage of Delhi police staff and majority of the Delhi police being involved in VIP patronage and security is also one of the reasons for non resolution of cases and spurt in crime rate.

The AAM AADMI government of Delhi has been demanding separate state hood of Delhi since long but of no awail. The law and order is the central subject and the Delhi police is under the union government’s ministry of home affairs with Delhi’s leutenant governor as its chief. The relations between Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival and the Delhi police has not been in good terms due to the latter’s being under the centre’s influence.

Kejrival has recently raised a controversy in the media by saying that he is afraid that he may be attacked by his own body guards who are from Delhi police as was late prime minister IndiraGandhi was assasinated.

In the past too Arvind Kejrival had quarrels with senior Delhi police officials and the union government on certain issues hyped too much in the media.

The recent concern of Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival regarding five murders in Delhi through a tweet while raises the law and order issue in the public domain but the reply of Delhi police about bringing some of the culprits to justice and lessening of heinous crime and women related crime rate in Delhi this year definitely gives some relief to Delhi citizens.

But it remains to be seen whether the law and order situation in the capital city of Delhi really improves in the near future as well to the fullest satisfaction of all its citizens or not.

While the Indian government is already tied up to extradite economic offenders Vijaya Mallya, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi and Lalit Modi from abroad who’d siphoned off thousands of crores of Indian Tax Payers money and clandestinely took refuge in foreign countries, the son of infamous liquor baron of the country late Ponty Chadda was today disembarked from the plane and arrested by the police officials of the Indian Offences Wing at Palam International Airport, Delhi in connection with an alleged multicrore scam worth several crores of Rupees on the basis of the look our circular issued against him by the EOW of Delhi police.

Just a few days earlier similarly, wanted in one of the economic offences’ cases of the enforcement directorate, the former Chairman of Jet Airways Naresh Goyal and his wife were also dis embarked from a plane heading for Dubai from where they were slated to go to United Kingdom without informing the authorities.

According to the latest news pouring in, son of late liquor baron Ponti Chadda, Manpreet Singh Chadda was arrested today from Palam International Airport by the sleuths of Delhi police’s Economic Offences Wing from where he was likely to fly abroad.

A South Extention based company owned by Manpreet perhaps, claimed it as their land and started collecting money for sale of land from the prospective customers through advertisements and middlemen employed by the company.

Several prospective buyers who included K. Ramesh and Kaveri as well, applied in this company to buy the land in the year 2005.

They paid a handsome amount in lakhs n crores to this company. But they were not given the possession of the land despite repeated requests from the applicants.

After dillydaying for several years the applicants were told that the company has finally got the allotment in the name of Web City.

The applicants became hopeful and thought that now they will get their land but after repeated requests when they could not succeed and finding themselves to be duped, these customers approached the Delhi police’s Economic Offences Wing and filed the written complaint which was converted in the FIR in 2018 as per the version of the EOW officials say the latest news.

The company had given the applicants 15 months’ deadline for allotment of the land but after not getting the possession, they were constrained to get their FIR registered.

The supreme court of India has strongly criticized and rapped the Uttar Pradesh police and the government for showing extreme hurry and desperation in arresting journalist Prashant Kanojia while hearing the Habeas Corpus petition filed by the wife of arrested journalist Jagisha Arora.

The apex court granted immediate bail to the arrested scribe and directed the UP government to release him on bail forthwith, subject to the final results of the on going investigations. The jurists said has anybody ever heard of such arrests for tweets ? How can the freedom of speech and expression be gagged in a democratic society?

The court has however also said that the journalists or anybody using the social media platforms should think himself/ herself as responsible citizens, exercise restraint and avoid passing or writing derogatory remarks against anyone especially without corroboration or evidence.

However, while passing the bail orders the court has not taken the tweets of Prashant Kanojia under consideration but issued clear instructions that no derogatory remarks should be written or tweeted against anybody in social media.

It also asked the state police to carry on the investigations but Kanojia should be immediately released on bail.

It may be recalled that apart from Prashant Kanojia, who has been charged under section 500 and 61 of the IPC for his derogatory on line comments against the UP CM and posting a woman’s vedio casting aspersions on Yogi Aditya Nath and subsequently arresting him, two other journalists, one Channel News Head of Nation Live and its editor Shukla have also been arrested and two other employees who absconded employees are being searched around for arrests for incessantly airing the vedio and the related news item.

The studio of Nation Live in sector 65 Noida has also been sealed.

There had been protests at Press Club of India yesterday by four media organisations terming the UP police action as derogatory, uncalled for and authoritarian to muzzle free speech and media freedom.

Scribe Prashant Kanojia’s wife has complained how the UP police had arbitrarily arrested her husband from their Delhi house in a huff and arrogant manner as if he is a hardened criminal.
