Attack on Aam Aadmi Party Office in Kaushambi, Ghaziabad

Today around 30 personnel belonging to a group called Hindu Raksha Dal came to Aam Aadmi Party Office: A-119, Kaushambi, Ghaziabad, today at 10:55 am and started shouting negative slogans and derogatory comments for Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan and Aam Aadmi Party. These violent protestors carrying sticks and bricks in their hand entered into office premises and tried to attack on Aam Aadmi Party volunteers, thankfully the volunteers rushed inside the room and they closed the doors from within. Then those protestors started damaging the property with their sticks and bricks, they also burled stones, bricks and flowerpots aimed at the volunteers inside the office with the intention to physically hurt them. This whole act of violence continued for around 25 minutes which has been covered in CCTV camera installed in the office premises. This whole protest was led by Bhupendar Tomar(Pincky Chaudhary), he’s from that Hindu Raksha Dal whose president is Vishnu Gupta. This is the same person who attacked Mr. Prashant Bhushan. This violent crowd disappeared before the police PCR van arrived. The details of the vehicles which were used by those violent protestors are:
  1. Tata Safari – DL 7C K 3230
  2. Mahindra Scorpio – UP 14 BW 0234
  3. Hyundai Eon – UP 14 CB 8565
  4. Skoda Fabia – DL 7C K 7092
  5. UP 14 R 4577
  6. UP 14 BJ 3482
Aam Aadmi Party condemns this attack, and demand a quick action on this matter. On the name of pseudo-patriotism, one should not be allowed to be violent. Such mindset can be with anyone but not with humanity and society as violence can never solution to any problems.

Santosh Chowdhary at the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2014: India has immense to offer in the healthcare sector
Smt. Santosh Chowdhary, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare addressed the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, here today.
Speaking at the occasion, the MoS (Health) highlighted several achievements of the Government in the healthcare area. She stated that with the 12th Plan allocations projecting a three-fold increase over the 11th Plan period, “Health” has become a central theme in our aim to achieve universal and inclusive healthcare for all our citizens. She also stated that India has immense to offer in the area of healthcare and there are tremendous opportunities for domestic and trans-national stakeholders to deliver in this sector, whether for health services, health research, infrastructure, medical equipment and technology or health insurance, pharmaceuticals, laboratories, etc. Smt. Chowdhary also said that healthcare industry in India is seen as booming in the last decades. Currently, it is estimated at US Dollar 80 billion and is expected to touch US Dollar 160 billion by the year 2017. She further said that India is now regarded as the ‘Pharmacy of the developing world’. It is because of our price and quality that we export drugs to more than 150 countries including highly regulated European Union, Japan and US markets, the MoS pointed out.
The Minister pointed out that under the NRHM more than Rs.1,11,000 crores have been released to 35 State Governments and UTs; nearly 51,000 health facilities have been created, including new construction and up-gradation works to improve public health infrastructure; and more than 70,000 beds have been added in government health institutions for provision of essential and emergency services across the country. She also said that it is a matter of great pride that in the last couple of years the field of medical research and development has been revolutionized. India has developed testing strips for diabetes, diagnostic tests for TB, Lung fluke, Dengue, cancer and several other infections, and newer environment friendly methods of mosquito control have been developed.
Highlighting the achievements of the AYUSH department, Smt. Chowdhary stated that with supportive Government policies and strategies, the country has developed a vast infrastructure of AYUSH facilities.  She said that India is one of the 17 mega bio-diversity rich countries and has 7% of the world’s bio-diversity. It has one of the oldest, richest and most diverse cultural traditions, associated with the use of medicinal plants, she said. The affordability of most traditional medicines makes them all the more attractive at a time of soaring healthcare costs and nearly universal austerity, the Minister informed the gathering.

India’s government debt structure mitigates macro-economic imbalances: Moody’s

India‘s government debt structure mitigates macro-economic imbalances: Moody’s
According to Moody’s Investors Service the structure of India ‘s government debt which is largely owed domestically, in rupees, at relatively low real interest rates and at long tenors has mitigated the credit challenges stemming from India ‘s high fiscal deficits and large government debt burden during a period of slower growth, currency volatility, and rising interest rates.
The government’s debt financing profile benefited from an increase in India ‘s domestic savings during previous years of high GDP growth, as well as from capital controls and bank liquidity requirements which channel a portion of private savings into government debt. Over the last decade, the domestic financial system absorbed longer term government debt at relatively low real interest rates.
Interest rates paid on Indian government debt have been significantly lower than India ‘s GDP growth rate, and this interest-growth differential has led lowered the government debt/GDP and government interest payments/government revenue ratio over the last decade, despite wide fiscal deficits. In the last three years, as interest rates have increased and growth has slowed, India ‘s interest-growth differential has narrowed, yet it remains more favorable than in many similarly rated countries, and is a factor underpinning government debt sustainability.
As macro-economic imbalances have heightened in the last few years, the currency, maturity and interest rate structure of government debt has supported India ‘s sovereign credit profile and Baa3 rating. Although government bond yields have risen significantly in the last year, the overall effective interest rate paid by the government has remained relatively stable, since a major portion of government debt was contracted at long maturities and fixed interest rates.
In addition, foreign currency debt and debt owed to non-residents is a relatively small portion of Indian government debt. Therefore, currency volatility and global risk aversion has a more limited impact on Indian government debt service costs than in countries where reliance on external debt is higher.
However, if current lower growth and high inflation persist over the medium term, the domestic financial system’s capacity to absorb government debt could fall quite considerably. This is monitored that it could change the structure of government debt, raise debt financing costs and weaken government debt ratios.

Arrest Prashant Bhushan : Bajrang Dal

प्रशांत भूषण की गिरफ़्तारी के लिये बजरंग दल का प्रदर्शन
नई दिल्ली। जनवरी 8, 2014। प्रशांत भूषण के जम्मू कश्मीर संबंधी बयान को लेकर बजरंग दल दिल्ली प्रांत ने आज जंतर-मंतर पर जमकर प्रदर्शन किया, प्रशांत भूषण का पुतला फ़ूँका और उसकी गिरफ़्तारी के लिये राष्ट्रपति को एक मांग पत्र सौंपा। बजरंग दल दिल्ली के प्रांत संयोजक श्री शिव कुमार ने प्रदर्शनकारियों का नेतृत्व करते हुए कहा कि जम्मू-कश्मीर भारत का मुकुट है और इसकी रक्षा करना प्रत्येक भारतवासी का परम कर्तव्य है। इसपर यदि कोई प्रश्न चिह्न लगाता है या किसी प्रकार के जनमत संग्रह की बात करता है तो वह राष्ट्रद्रोही से कम नहीं है और उसको उसकी सज़ा अवश्य मिलनी चाहिए।
कश्मीर के संदर्भ में जनमत संग्रह की बात करने वाले आम आदमी पार्टी के नेता प्रशांत भूषण के विरुद्ध बजरंग दल के कार्यकर्ताओं का गुस्सा जंतर-मंतर पर कुछ इस तरह फ़ूटा कि प्रशांत भूषण के पुतले को आग लगाने के बाद उसे जूतों से रौंदा गया। देशद्रोह के अपराध में गिरफ़्तारी की मांग के साथ उसे आप पार्टी से निकालने की भी पुरज़ोर मांग की गई। बाद में इस संबंध में एक ज्ञापन भी भारत के महामहिम राष्ट्रपति डा प्रणव मुखर्जी को दिया गया।
ज्ञापन की प्रति मीडिया को जारी करते हुए विहिप दिल्ली के मीडिया प्रमुख श्री विनोद बंसल ने बताया कि यह पहला अवसर नहीं था जब प्रशांत भूषण ने कश्मीर पर ज़हर उगला हो। इससे पहले भी इसके बयान व क्रियाकलाप ऐसे रहे हैं जो कश्मीर के अलगाववादियों की तर्ज़ पर थे। हमने राष्ट्रपति महोदय से अलगाववादी विचारधारा के लोगों पर तुरंत अंकुश लगाकर उन्हें अविलंब गिरफ़्तार करने की मांग की है। ज्ञापन की एक प्रति आम आदमी पार्टी के संयोजक व दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री श्री अरविंद केजरीवाल को भी भेजी गई है जिसमें उनसे अलगाववादी शक्तियों से दूर रहने का निवेदन करते हुए भूषण को पार्टी से निष्कासित करने की मांग की गई है।
हाथों में भगवा झंडे व अलगाववाद को दूर करो, प्रशांत को गिरफ़्तार करो, प्रशांत भूषण हाय हाय, हाय हाय, हाय हाय इत्यादि नारे लिखे प्लेकार्ड लिये प्रदर्शनकारियों ने जंतर मंतर से राष्ट्रपति भवन को प्रस्थान किया। बाद में एक प्रतिनिधि मंडल ने राष्ट्रपति भवन जाकर महामहिम को एक ज्ञापन सौंपा। प्रदर्शनकारियों को विहिप दिल्ली के महामंत्री श्री राम कृष्ण श्रीवास्तव, उपाध्यक्ष श्री अशोक कपूर, दीपक कुमार, गुरदीन प्रसाद रस्तुगी, बजरंग दल के श्री नीरज दौनेरिया, शैलेंद्र जयसवाल, दीपक सिंह इत्यादि अनेक वक्ताओं ने संबोधित किया।

US Embassy asked to stop commercial activities



US Embassy asked to stop commercial activitiesUpdated on : 09-01-2014 05:16 PM
In further retaliatory steps over the arrest of diplomat Devyani Khobragade, India has asked the US to “discontinue” commercial activities being undertaken from its embassy premises in New Delhi by 16th January.
India’s action comes ahead of the 13th January deadline for the indictment in New York of Khobragade, Deputy Consul General in New York, on visa fraud charges. Acting tough, the government has asked the embassy to stop commercial activities undertaken under the aegis of the American Community Support Association (ACSA), including restaurant/bar, video club, bowling alley, swimming pool, sports field, beauty parlour and gym.
The US has also been asked to provide the tax returns filed by it with Indian authorities for commercial activities which are afforded through ACSA to non-diplomatic persons, including private American citizens and their families, government sources said in New Delhi.
Indian authorities have cited the provision of such commercial facilities to non-diplomats as a violation of Article 41(3) of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961.
The Convention states that “the premises of the mission must not be used in any manner incompatible with the functions of the mission as laid down in the present Convention or by other rules of general international law or by any special agreements in force between the sending and the receiving State.”
It is also understood the US diplomatic vehicles will now attract penalties for all traffic-related offences such as unauthorised parking, red light jumping, dangerous driving etc.
Necessary action against Vehicles with AF (Applied for) number plates is also on the cards.
A 1999-batch IFS officer, Khobragade was arrested on 12th December on charges of making false declarations in a visa application for her maid Sangeeta Richard.
She was released on a USD 250,000 bond. India has been demanding the withdrawal of the case against her and an apology from the US for the treatment meted out to the 39-year-old diplomat, including a strip search and detention with criminals after her arrest.
The incident led to strong protests by the Indian government and widespread indignation in India.
At the time of her arrest, Khobragade was the Deputy Consul General in New York.
She was subsequently transferred to India’s Permanent Mission to the UN.
India has retaliated by downgrading privileges of a certain category of US diplomats among other steps last month.
US consular officials in four consulates in India are being issued new ID cards specifying the limited immunity which will not protect them from serious offences.
This is in line with the restricted immunity given to India’s Consular officials in the US.
Families of American consular officials will no longer have diplomatic ID cards, an out of way privilege enjoyed by them in India. Families of Indian consular officials do not have any such privileges.
The US consular staff is now only permitted to import their requirements during the first six months on assuming office as is provided in the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations.
Previously, they were allowed to import their requirements over the three year period of tenure.
