Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi arrives in Thailand where she is expected to be garlanded by her adoring compatriots, hundreds of thousands of whom have sought wo…
Myanmar state counselor and foreign minister, on her first official visit to Thailand since her government was inaugurated, went to Mahachai in Samut Sakhon province to address 500 Myanmar nationals working there.
But the overflow crowd of thousands more, barred from entering the venue, lost patience.”Long live mother,” they chanted and waved Myanmar flags as security forces tried to regroup and ponder how to get the crowd under control.
A downpour thwarted Aung San Suu Kyi’s last-minute plan to also address the thousands of supporters who could not get inside.
“Tell my people I am disappointed I cannot give a speech to them outside today, but I know their problems well,” she told migrant activist Andy Hall, according to his tweet. –
Hundreds of thousands of migrants work in Thailand’s fishery-related industries, about half estimated to be illegally employed.The exploitation of some of them has been well-documented.
Overall, there are as many as three million Myanmar nationals working legally in Thailand and perhaps as many as two million more are undocumented.
Myanmar and Thailand, during Aung San Suu Kyi’s three-day visit, are expected to announce a new cross-border employment agreement.
The mandatory work-break period would be cut from three years to 30 days.

Her tightly-controlled schedule allows little interaction with the media, seen by some as a way of avoiding difficult questions about the treatment of Rohingya Muslims, who are held in camps in apartheid-like conditions in Myanmar’s west.
She will visit a seafood-processing district south of Bangkok, meeting some of the millions of migrant workers who prop up Thailand’s seafood, agriculture, construction and service industries.
At least 1.5 million and perhaps as many as 4 million Myanmar citizens live and work in Thailand.

we need to overpower the fishing lobby first!

Delhi’s LG and BJP MP Maheish Girri stand completely exposed

Delhi’s LG and BJP MP Maheish Girri stand completely exposed in late MM Khan’s murder conspiracy   
  • Delhi LG has been forced to concede that Maheish Girri had recommended murder accused hotelier to him
  • What is maheish Girri’s defence now ?
  • Under which authority did Delhi LG talk of arbitration to settle the dispute between NDMC and the defaulter hotel ?
  • What was LG’s interest in causing a loss of Rs 140 crore to the state exchequer ?

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has always stood firmly behind officers who have the courage to perform their duty honestly in a corrupt system. The fight for justice for late MM Khan, an honest NDMC officer who was murdered on May 16, is part of the AAP’s fight against corruption.
The Aam Aadmi Party has been bringing to the fore incriminating evidence in the form of letters and other documents that point to a clear murder conspiracy. The role of leaders of the BJP, MP Maheish Girri and MCD Vice Chairman Karan Singh Tanwar has also been exposed by the AAP. The fact that the perpetrator of this crime has received political patronage from the Bhartiya Janata Party and its leaders is both shocking and disturbing.
A prominent national daily, in today’s report on this entire conspiracy has published parts of correspondence between Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Mr Najeeb Jung and the NDMC, which expose the blatant lies that Mr Maheish Girri has been trying to peddle to save himself from being made a co-accused in the murder.
After the L-G forwarded Mr Girri’s desperate appeal for seeking quashing of the cancellation of the land deed on behalf of the accused, the NDMC’s response has called Mr Girri’s bluff. The NDMC, quoting a Delhi High Court verdict, which was later upheld by the Supreme Court that disallows arbitration, denied Mr Girri’s request.
How can Mr Girri claim that he had nothing to do with Mr Kakkar’s case in the NDMC? How can he deny his direct involvement in seeking action against MM Khan, who conveniently ended up as a victim of a murder conspiracy?
What is even more shocking is the timeline of events on and after the day of the murder. Even as Mr Khan was murdered on16th May, and the police had arrested the accused hotelier Ramesh Kakkar, the L-G deemed it fit to write another time to the NDMC on behalf of a murder accused and his MP friend Mahiesh Girri.
What is the L-G’s interest in repeatedly trying to seek an action that illegally provides the accused a gain of Rs 140 crore ? Despite the High Court order which makes it clear that only the Estate Officer, who in this case was late MM Khan, was allowed to adjudicate in the matter, the L-G kept writing letter after letter on the behest of Maheish Girri and Ramesh Kakkar. The L-G had no right or authority to intervene in the matter, but his persistent, acute interest in the matter is highly suspect and warrants a thorough probe. The Delhi Police must investigate the L-G’s connection and relationship with the accused Mr Kakkar and his lawyers.
This entire murder conspiracy reeks of a nexus between a corrupt hotelier, who murdered an honest officer, and did so without fear of law because of the direct political support and patronage of the BJP, MP Mahiesh Girri and Karan Singh Tanwar. A corrupt political system of which the BJP, the L-G and the hotelier sought to take advantage of has made an honest officer the casualty.
The seriousness of the allegations and the evidence that has come to light today warrant nothing short of immediate arrests of L-G Najeeb Jung, Maheish Girri and Karan Singh Tanwar.
The roles of all three must be investigated and the possibility of a common mastermind behind this conspiracy must also be considered and probed. The AAP demands that the probe be carried out by an impartial agency. The Delhi Police, which reports to the L-G is not in a position to carry out this probe unless the L-G’s powers over the police are suspended.
The L-G must immediately resign from his position, and if he fails to do so, the Union Government must take the morally correct decision and sack the L-G immediately.


Shri Dharmendra Pradhan & Shri Prakash Javadekar launch Pilot Programme
Project supported by IGL and GAIL
New Delhi, June 23, 2016: In a major step to curb rising air pollution in Indian cities, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister of State (Independent Charge), Petroleum and Natural Gas and Shri Prakash Javadekar, Hon’ble Minister of State (Independent Charge), Environment, Forest & Climate Change launched first of its kind Pilot Programme in the country to run two wheelers on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) here today in the presence of Smt. Meenakshi Lekhi, Hon’ble Member of Parliament, Dr. Bhure Lal, Chairman, EPCA, Shri B.C. Tripathi, CMD, GAIL (India) Ltd., Shri Ashutosh Jindal, Joint Secretary, Ministry Of Petroleum & Natural Gas, Shri E.S. Ranganathan, Managing Director, Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), officials and media persons.
Being implemented by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), India’s largest CNG distribution company and one of its parent company, GAIL (India) Limited, the Pilot Programme will involve 50 CNG retrofitted two wheelers. Of these, the first batch of ten CNG retrofitted two wheelers were flagged off by the dignitaries at IGL’s CGO Complex CNG Station.
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Pradhan said there are 55 lakh two wheelers in the national capital alone and this Pilot Programme will serve as small but vital step in the fight against pollution. He said the CNG-run two wheelers will not only emit 75 % lesser hydrocarbons as compared to petrol-driven models but would be more economical to run. Welcoming the initiative of Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), Shri Pradhan said that the Government is pro-actively striving to promote clean fuel in the country. He said that the Government is promoting the use of gas in the country, thereby providing a better lifestyle to the people and also fulfilling the COP-21 commitments to curb pollution. Shri Pradhan said that the Gas share in the country’s fuel basket is just 7% compared to world average of around 24%. Describing the pilot programme to run two wheelers on CNG as historic, he said that after evaluating its experience, it will be expanded very fast.
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Prakash Javadekar said that the Government is fully committed to control pollution in the country, and for this purpose, there will be a jump from Euro-IV type fuel to Euro-VI by 2020. He said that Environment Ministry will fully support the endeavours to promote clean fuel, including Gas. The Minister said that the launch of pilot phase of the project for CNG kit in two-wheelers will have a far-reaching implication in reducing pollution.
Mrs Meenakshi Lekhi congratulated the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas for converting a corporate oriented ministry to a welfare oriented one. She said that pilot project is a sign of growing India-Iran cooperation, as the Iranian kits have been used for retrofitment.
Earlier, welcoming the guests, Shri B.C. Tripathi said the technical and commercial feasibility of CNG-run two wheelers would be explored during the Pilot Programme before commercialization. The performance of the two wheelers and the feedback of the drivers would also be taken into account, he said adding the initiative may also be extended to Bengaluru and Pune in due course.
While delivering vote of thanks, Shri E.S. Ranganathan shared that IGL had been asked by Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas and GAIL (India) Limited to find a city specific solution to the rising pollution levels in the capital. He added that this is just the first step and IGL would be working towards developing a road map of introduction of CNG in other two wheelers like motorcycles also. He reiterated the commitment of IGL towards expanding its CNG refueling infrastructure to meet the increasing demand.
The project is inspired by the ‘Hawa Badlo’ initiative which is a people’s initiative to fight air pollution backed by GAIL and city gas distribution companies. As part of the movement, a number of awareness drives have been carried out regarding the fight against air pollution. ‘Hawa Badlo’ also supports research initiatives in this regard, of which the CNG retrofitted two wheeler programme is a part.
Fifty scooters shall be retrofitted with CNG kit manufactured by M/s ITuk Manufacturing India Pvt. Ltd in the pilot phase. The type approval of the CNG kit has been taken from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) as well as Transport Department, Govt. of NCT of Delhi. The approvals of all Components, parts and assemblies in the kit, as applicable, have been obtained from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), International Center for Automotive Technology (ICAT) and Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organization (PESO). The retrofitment in vehicles has been undertaken in a centre authorized by Transport Department, Govt. of NCT of Delhi.
As per idle emission test, the hydrocarbon emissions from CNG retrofitted two wheelers are 75% lesser and CO emissions are 20% lesser as compared to petrol driven similar models.
The CNG kit for two wheelers comprises two CNG cylinders of 4.8 litre water capacity each, which can be filled with up to 1 kg of CNG in each cylinder. These CNG retrofitted two wheelers can drive upto 120 kms in a single fill and are expected to be substantially economical as compared to a similar petrol run vehicle at the current level of prices as per the kit manufacturer.
The performance of CNG retrofitted two wheelers would be closely monitored in terms of efficiency, emissions, etc. during the pilot phase by all the stakeholders and the learning from this project would be used to develop the road map for introduction of CNG in two wheeler segment across the nation.
The role of CNG in curbing alarmingly high pollution levels in the capital during first decade of this century has been acknowledged world over. However, there has also been a major increase in the vehicular population in Delhi. While the entire public transport in the city has been mandated to run on CNG by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, around 5 lakh CNG powered private cars are also running in the city and their numbers are increasing due to increased environmental awareness as well as economics in favour of CNG.
IGL has been augmenting its CNG refueling infrastructure to commensurate with increasing demand in its geographical areas of operation. A record number of 92 new CNG filling facilities have been set up by IGL in the region during first five months of the year between January and May 2016 thereby taking the number of CNG fuelling facilities of IGL to 414.

Spain to seek co-sovereignty on Gibraltar

Spain to seek co-sovereignty on Gibraltar following Britain’s vote to leave the EU, acting foreign minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo said on Friday, saying the vote completely changed the outlook on the future of the island.
The small island off the south coast of Spain, a British Overseas Territory since 1713 and known to its 30,000 residents as “the Rock,” is a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations. “It’s a complete change of outlook that opens up new possibilities on Gibraltar not seen for a very long time. I hope the formula of co-sovereignty – to be clear, the Spanish flag on the Rock – is much closer than before,” he said.
