Fed set to cut rates for first time in decade Is it

WASHINGTON — There’s little dispute that the Federal Reserve this week will do something it hasn’t done since 2008, when the U.S. economy was gripped by the Great Recession: Cut its benchmark interest rate.This time, by contrast, the economy is solid by most measures. Consumers are spending. Unemployment is close to a half-century low. A recession hardly seems imminent.Yet the Fed under Chairman Jerome Powell has signalled that rising economic pressures — notably from President Donald Trump’s trade wars and from a global slowdown — have become cause for concern. So has an inflation rate that remains chronically below the Fed’s target level.So the Fed has decided that a rate cut now — and possibly one or more additional cuts to follow — could help inoculate the economy against a potential downturn. The idea is that lowering its key short-term rate, which can affect consumer and business loans, could encourage borrowing and spending and energize the economy.Wall Street has welcomed that prospect. Since the start of the year, the mood of investors has swung decisively from angst about potentially higher rates to elation over the prospect of looser credit. That has helped drive a stock market rally.Still, skeptics wonder whether Fed rate cuts at this point would really do much to bolster an economy whose borrowing rates are already low. Some even worry that the central bank will be taking a needless risk: By cutting rates now, the Fed is disarming itself of some ammunition it would need in case the economy did slide toward a recession. Some also suggest that by driving rates ever lower, the Fed might be helping to fuel dangerous bubbles in stocks or other risky assets.Powell will surely be asked about these concerns at a news conference Wednesday after the Fed ends its latest meeting with a policy statement. Reporters will likely also press him about the likelihood of further rate cuts to follow this week’s expected move and also whether continued pressure from President Donald Trump to cut rates is damaging the Fed’s political independence.Trump kept up his drumbeat of criticism, complaining in tweets Monday that the Fed raised rates “way too early and way too much” and a small rate cut now “is not enough.”Two government reports last week — on economic growth during the April-June quarter and orders for durable manufactured goods — confirmed that the economy remains on firm footing even with pressures at home and abroad. As a result, some analysts the Fed may pause after Wednesday’s rate cut to see if the economic outlook further brightens before deciding on any further easing.Other analysts foresee two or even three rate cuts this year as the Fed tries to counter global threats that risk spreading to the United States — not just prolonged trade rifts but also a potentially botched exit by Britain from the European Union, a weaker China and the risk of a recession in Europe.The Fed’s current rate policy marks the continuation of an abrupt policy shift beginning early this year. In December, the Fed had raised its benchmark rate for the fourth time in 2018 and projected two additional rate increases in 2019. At the time, Powell also suggested that the Fed would keep reducing its bond portfolio indefinitely — a step that would further contribute to higher rates. Stock prices tumbled for days afterward.In January, Powell and the Fed signalled a sudden policy shift — indicating that they would be “patient” about any changes in rates and implying that rate hikes were off the table.After U.S.-China trade talks collapsed in May, the Fed went further and began considering acting to sustain the economic expansion, which has just become the longest on record.Yet now, with U.S.-China trade talks back on track and signs of a resilient U.S. economy, some are wondering why the Fed is considering a rate cut. One theory is that the policymakers have so clearly signalled that a cut is coming that they must follow through on it.Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said he thinks that in the absence of any economic calamity, only one rate cut is likely this year. David Jones, an economist who has written books about the Fed, agrees with that forecast.“The market is getting ahead of itself in expecting a series of rate cuts,” Jones said.Diane Swonk, chief economist at Grant Thornton, noted that some concern has arisen that the Fed may already be fueling a bubble in stocks that could eventually burst and threaten the economy.In the meantime, there’s little incentive to sell stocks. Indeed, “Don’t fight the Fed” is a common saying on Wall Street. To traders, it means riding stocks and other risky investments when the Fed is cutting rates and lightening up on stocks when it’s tightening. Low rates mean that bonds pay out less in interest, which makes stocks more attractive by comparison.Investors often assess a stock’s price by how much the company earns. So far this year, investors have gone from paying $14.47 for each $1 in expected earnings per share for S&P 500 companies over the ensuing 12 months to more than $17. That increased willingness has helped S&P 500 index funds surge more than 20% this year — even though earnings for S&P 500 companies were likely down in the first six months of 2019 from year-ago levels.“We have incredibly low rates, and the Fed is going to be very accommodative,” said Craig Hodges, portfolio manager at Hodges Funds. “If anything unforeseen happens, like if tensions escalate worldwide or if the trade talks break down, the Fed is there to have a safety net under us. That gives me a little bit of confidence.”Of course, how much further the stock market has to go is up for debate. The last 19 times the Fed began a rate-cutting cycle in response to slowing growth, dating to the 1950s, the economy eventually slipped into recession in nearly half of them, according to Deutsche Bank. In those recessions, the S&P 500 typically dropped 27% from peak to trough.If anything, the market rally may increase pressure on companies. Few analysts see the stock market as cheap now that investors are willing to pay so much more relative to corporate profits. For the stock market to make its next move higher, growth in profits may need to lead the way.___Choe reported from New York.Martin Crutsinger And Stan Choe, The Associated Press read more

Imperial professor loses job after harassing younger woman he met on Tinder

The court heard Krams had sent letters and phoned his former partner during June and July, but denied posting the letters by hand through her door.He contacted the police and admitted sending a letter, but carried on after being told to stop. Ausra Satiene In November 2017 Krams took a job at Queen Mary University where he worked as a councillor while still working at the hospital twice a week.He told the court: “At the beginning I was very much in love with her. What happened in October was aggressive and strong-minded – it was not my style.”There were two phone calls were she asked for money in December. I was already thinking about her attitude. Then suddenly received phone calls that I should pay her because she is younger.”Ms Satiene also worked at the same hospital and Krams said he wrote to her because he was fearful for his career.He claimed she was phoning him up to 30 times from withheld numbers after their break-up but not speaking when he picked up the call.He added: “I sent her flowers. I am from a Dutch culture. I bought my ex-wife in Holland flowers almost every week.”I was secretly hopeful she would phone and say ‘Rob I did not pay you enough attention’ but she phoned to ask me for money.” At Krams’ sentencing hearing, Georgia Luscombe, defending, said: “He has been punished socially and professionally.”He received a letter from human resources saying that he is no longer able to continue as professor at Imperial College. Ms Satiene had earlier told the court at Krams’ trial she felt she had nowhere to go when letters continued to arrive after police intervention, which she claimed “disrespected” her decision to break up with him.”I did not know what the next step would be,” she said. “It made me feel very anxious, uncomfortable and emotional.”It made me feel terrible. Even after the police got involved the letters were still coming and I did not know what to do.”Each time I had to open a letter I did not know what to expect. I was very anxious, I was very unhappy and I was very concerned.”In the letter he mentioned social class and I felt that he was putting me down. I felt scared because I was receiving personal letters after he received a warning and an caution.”He was still contacting me after we broke up and things were over. He disrespected my decision.”Krams, who is also a doctor at Hammersmith Hospital, complained he was taken advantage of and treated like a “sugar daddy”. “He does have another professorship but he is unsure of that. His is 63 years old and he has no previous convictions. This offence is wholly out of character.”Mr Krams deeply regrets his actions. I think talking to probation was sobering for him. He told me he misinterpreted these missed or unknown phone calls.”I don’t think he did appreciate at the time what effect these letters were having but he does now.”There were no threats in these letters. They were reconciliatory in tone and they were never calculated to cause alarm or distress.”Banning him from contacting Ms Satiene for two years, magistrate Lucinda Lubbock said: “We have taken into account all that has been on your behalf. We are therefore, giving you a 12 month community order and 40 hours unpaid work.”We are going to impose a restraining order but we will time it to two years rather than indefinite. That is not to contact Ausra Satiene directly or indirectly.”Krams, of North Gate, Prince Albert Road, St John’s Wood, northwest London, denied harassment but was found guilty after trial and was sentenced to a 12 month community order with 40 hours unpaid work.He was told to pay costs of £660 and the victim surcharge of £85. Sitting in the dock he was quiet and hung his head while his counsel described him as “extremely stressed”. A professor at Imperial College lost his job after he harassed a younger woman he met on Tinder, a court heard. Rob Krams, 63, was working at the London university as a bio-engineering lecturer when he met Ausra Satiene on the mobile dating app.They were in a relationship for a year and half enjoying trips across Europe and eating out at expensive restaurants in London, but in January they split up after arguments about money.Krams, originally from the Netherlands, ignored a police caution by continuing to make contact with his former girlfriend, sending her four letters and phoning her.The correspondence, according to Ms Satiene, included slurs about her social class which left her “anxious and scared” and struggling to sleep.Ms Satiene said in a statement: “The harassment has made me feel very uncomfortable and has caused a lot of anxiety especially when the letters were being physically delivered to our door.”I felt that there was no end to this. I only feel better now that we have moved to a location he has no knowledge off.”I was worried he would contact my employer and bad mouth me like he had in the letters.”After a couple of sleepless nights due to anxiety and worry I felt very tired at work and it was effecting my performance.” Ausra Satiene Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Projects persevering despite difficulties

first_imgLatest issue of International Mining Project News available (November 21): With the sense of uncertainty that is circulating throughout the industry, project reports and updates are increasing in importance. As a consequence another section on cutbacks has been added. Included in this section is Freeport McMoran Copper and Gold’s Climax molybdenum mine and Xstrata Alloys and Merafe Resources’ Xstrata-Merafe venture; representing two of many featured companies having to adjust their projects to suit the times.On more positive news, Gindalbie Metals has accepted an offer by its joint venture partner in the Karara iron ore project, Anshan Iron & Steel, to fund Gindalbie’s share of the equity contribution towards the estimated A$1.8 billion project development cost via a A$162.06 million share placement to Ansteel. The re-scheduled timeframe – a result of this placement – will have no impact on the ongoing engineering, design and development work currently being carried out for Karara, located 225 km north of Gerlaldton in Western Australia.There is also news of Avalon Minerals, which has taken steps to progress drilling and feasibility studies at its flagship Viscaria copper project, located in the Norrbotten area of northern Sweden. It intends to raise A$2 million through the placement of 20 million shares at A$0.10/share, helping the company extend the known high-grade resources at Viscaria through extensional drilling.In project people, the North West Iron Ore Alliance has appointed former Chief Executive of the Association of Mining & Exploration Companies (AMEC), Dr Justin Walawski, as the Alliance’s Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive. Walawski will be responsible for overseeing the Alliance’s operations as it continues to focus on negotiating key rail and port access arrangements and completing a scoping study for infrastructure development at Port Hedland.Featured in feasibility, Marengo Mining is well underway with Phase 2 of its study on its wholly-owned Yandera copper-molybdenum project in Papua New Guinea. Recent resource drilling, together with metallurgical data and initial project operating cost information, has resulted in several open pit designs, mine schedules and layouts to be generated. Phase 2 includes metallurgical test work, which is already showing some very positive results, mine design, plant design, equipment selection and infrastructure layout. This represents but a few of the projects featured in this issue, which includes updates on Gold Ore Resources’ Bjorkdal gold mine in Sweden, BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam extension project in Australia and Codelco’s Gaby copper mine in Chile.To receive the full 30+ page report, subscriptions to this service can be registered and paid for on-line (SUBSCRIBE TO IM PROJECT NEWS BUTTON), or contact for a free trial copy.last_img read more

Panasonic Eluga is a lightweight waterproof and oddlynamed Android smartphone

first_imgBack in December, Panasonic announced that it was preparing a full-on global assault on the smartphone market. Up first is Europe, where the company’s opening salvo will be fired in a 4.3″ shell. That phone has now gotten official as the Panasonic Eluga.An interesting choice in names, to be sure, but it probably has something to do with the phone’s aquatic exploits (like the whale that rhymes with Eluga). It joins the ever-increasing list of waterproof and dustproof phones, though it’s anything but whale-like in terms of weight at just 103g. That makes it lighter than even the waifish NEC Medias N-04C. Hardware details are very thin at this point, but Panasonic has revealed that the Eluga’s 4.3-inch display packs 540 x 960 pixels — no word on whether it uses an OLED panel as previously rumored.As Sony and Samsung do with their Android phones, Panasonic has designed the Eluga to work in perfect harmony with its Viera smart TVs. Images and videos can be transferred from phone to television with a simple swipe, and you’re also able to display what you’re viewing in the Eluga’s browser using the just-released Viera Remote app version 2.0. One other slick function Panasonic offers is a controller mode, which turns your phone into a gamepad for big-screen fun on compatible Viera sets.The Eluga is set to land on European shores in the very near future, and it’s being shown off by Panasonic ahead of MWC 2012. Keep your eye on this post for updated hardware details once they’re announced.More at Pocket Lint and TechRadarlast_img read more

Rise of Smart Devices in Homes Has Positive Impact on Family Life

first_img“The national dialogue about the effects of digital technology on family life has taken a decidedly negative turn,” reads a report accompanying the study. “While it’s true that many families are seeking sensible cutbacks to ‘screen time,’ our research suggests that what has been overlooked are the ways in which technology is also improving family life and connection.”While Trusted Media Brands has a clear vested interest in alleviating concerns about digital media consumption in the home (Taste of Home‘s 19.8 million unique monthly visitors, for example, outnumber even Reader’s Digest‘s peak circulation figures of the 1970s and ’80s), debates over the optimal limits on device usage aren’t likely to end anytime soon.A separate study published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association draws a correlation between screen time and delays in cognitive development among toddlers. But another, published this month in Nature Human Behavior, argues that “the outsized weight given to digital screen-time in scientific and public discourse might not be merited on the basis of the available evidence,” suggesting that the negative impact of technology use in adolescents pales in comparison to other factors, like bullying, substance abuse or poor eating habits.“It’s clear from our research that American families are embracing digital technology in their homes and everyday lives,” said Trusted Media Brands’ president and CEO, Bonnie Kintzer, in a statement. “As American families look to enhance and deepen the relationships that matter most in their lives, marketers should be looking for ways to use technology to bring families together and engage them with their brands.” Solutions to the rampant proliferation of electronic devices in family homes have evolved considerably in the age of smartphones, from mandates of “no devices at the dinner table” to built-in features like iOS 12’s Screen Time, which monitors activity and allows for the imposition of parental controls to limit usage.But a new study suggests that, like many technological advancements (when used in moderation), a vast majority of American families have found that the increasing presence of digital devices has had a net-positive impact on home life and intra-family relationships.The final installment in a three-part study conducted by Kantar Consulting and Trusted Media Brands, Inc., the publisher of Reader’s Digest, Taste of Home and the Family Handyman, among others, surveyed 3,500 families (defined as two or more adults in a household with at least one family member/spouse) to better understand how technological and cultural shifts are impacting American home life.Among the findings: 86 percent of respondents said they use technology “regularly” to communicate with other members of the home, while nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of respondents indicated that technology has afforded them more free time at home.Further, only slim minorities suggested that technology has made their families less engaged while they are together (15 percent), or that it has negatively impacted their families’ social skills (9 percent).last_img read more

Top Trump economic aide Cohn resigns

first_imgUS President Donald Trump shakes hands with Gary Cohn, Director of the National Economic Council, during a retreat with Republican lawmakers and members of his Cabinet at Camp David in Thurmont, Maryland. AFP file photoDonald Trump’s White House was rocked by another high-profile resignation Tuesday, as top economic advisor Gary Cohn quit in protest at the president’s decision to levy global steel tariffs.“It has been an honor to serve my country and enact pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people,” Cohn said in a terse statement that belied fierce infighting in Trump’s tumultuous White House.Cohn is just the latest in a long string of senior Trump advisors to resign or be fired, a virtually unprecedented turnover of administration staff.The 57-year-old had strongly opposed Trump’s decision to levy tariffs on steel and aluminum, which has sparked fears of a trade war.“For several weeks Gary had been discussing with the president that it was nearing time for him to transition out. His departure date is to be determined but will be a few weeks from now,” a White House official said.A former Goldman Sachs executive, his departure prompted concerned murmurs on Wall Street and could portend a rocky trading session on Wednesday.The aide, who is Jewish, had threatened to resign after Trump refused to condemn neo-Nazi groups who protested in Charlottesville, Virginia.Then, like now, allies had tried to keep Cohn on board with the prospect of a future cabinet-level position or passing tax reform—which he helped usher through Congress.A long-time Democrat, he was seen as a moderating influence that curbed Trump’s nationalist economic instincts and those of advisors like Peter Navarro.In a statement, Trump praised Cohn’s as a “rare talent.”“Gary has been my chief economic advisor and did a superb job in driving our agenda, helping to deliver historic tax cuts and reforms and unleashing the American economy once again,” Trump said.“He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people.”‘No chaos’Cohn’s departure presents a political problem for Trump, as he wrestles Congressional Republicans who share the aide’s concern about tariffs and a looming trade war.It also blows a hole in Trump’s claim, made just hours earlier, that his White House is running smoothly, despite a wave of resignations and FBI investigators circling his top aides.In an early morning tweet, Trump said there was no “CHAOS in the White House” describing it as a “Fake News narrative” as he tried to reassure supporters that his administration has not careened off the rails.“Wrong! People will always come & go,” he said after his closest aide Hope Hicks and staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down amid interwoven scandals.Trump’s first year in office has been a frenzy of departures and infighting, which insiders put down to clashing interests, inexperience and the president’s unique management style.“I want strong dialogue before making a final decision,” Trump said, defending his method of promoting staff argument.But the former real estate developer also hinted that things were not perfect.“I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy!” he said.last_img read more

Environmental officers seize thousands of illegal wildlife

first_imgThe federal agency says the products were discovered during routine inspections and surveillance operations in coordination with different institutions including the Attorney General’s Office, federal police, ministerial state and municipal police. Mexico City, Mexico — Already this year, Profepa officers have seized nearly 11,000 illegal wildlife products. Photo: La Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente They say that between March and April alone, they seized 526 live parrots that were being illegally smuggled for sale. The seizure was made by the federal police at a screening filter in the municipality of Chalco, State of Mexico. Profepa says that other seized species include various monkeys, felines such as jaguars, ocelots, cougars and wildcats, 22 species of birds including macaws and parrots, among others. They also list 443 reptiles, birds of prey including hawks and a Golden Eagle, fish and other marine species such as seahorses, sea cucumbers and coral. La Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente (Profepa) reports that already in 2019, federal officers from around the country have sezied nearly 11,000 wildlife products in a bid to curb illegal trafficking. center_img La Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente says one of their biggest assets has been citizen complaints, which has allowed the federal agency to rescue and release live specimens such as birds, reptiles and mammals back into the wild.

to crawl off of a United Airlines flight when the airline failed to provide a wheelchair to move him from his seat and off of the plane D’Arcee Neal a disabled rights’ activist was traveling from San Francisco to Washington when the incident occurred After landing in the DC area Neal was asked to wait for a specially designed aisle wheelchair to arrive to help him deplane But due to a mix up at the gate Neal waited about 30 minutes for the chair to arrive And because Neal had to use the restroom–a task made difficult while on the plane due to his disability–he found he could no longer wait and decided to crawl off of the plane to a chair that was waiting at the gangway Neal told NBC Washington last week he was humiliated by the experience especially given the fact that flight attendants

to Maya Rhodan at mayarhodan@timecomEuropean ambassadors and foreign business lobbies are calling on China to introduce "bold" and concrete market reforms at a Shanghai trade fair next week that the government touts as proof of its commitment to opening upPresident Xi Jinping on Monday formally kicks off the week-long China International Import Expo (CIIE) which will gather more than 3000 foreign businesses from 130 countries seeking to sell their products in China’s marketXi has raised expectations by saying it will be unlike any trade fair staged in the country and help reduce the massive trading surpluses it runs with other countries such as the United StatesIn a phone call with Donald Trump on Thursday Xi told the US president the expo "shows China’s willingness to increase imports and open further" according to an account by Chinese state mediaBut trading partners and foreign firms remain sceptical saying China continually backtracks on promisesThe EU Chamber of Commerce in China urged leaders to "move beyond rhetoric" in a position paper released Friday"The reform deficit has already sparked serious tensions with China’s major trading partners so it is imperative that the government makes a concerted effort to address the issue at all levels" it saidForeign government and business groups complain over preferential treatment accorded to Chinese firms requirements that foreign companies form joint ventures with Chinese enterprises forced technology transfer intellectual property violations and restrictive red tapeTrump has targeted such complaints in his escalating trade battle with China that has seen both sides impose tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of goodsIt remains unknown whether China will unveil any substantive measures next week to address the long-standing complaintsThe French and German ambassadors to Beijing said in a commentary published in Chinese media on Thursday that the expo was an opportunity to "level the playing field"French Ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert and Germany’s Clemens von Goetze wrote that the time was right with China nearing next month’s 40th anniversary of its historic shift toward economic reforms urging Beijing to give that effort "fresh impetus"China is pivoting from an economic model dominated by export manufacturing and investment toward one based increasingly on domestic consumer demand and the expo purports to welcome more foreign importsThe United States last week said it will not send "high-level" representation to the expo instead calling on China to "end its unfair trade practices"Kenneth Jarrett president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai said the association wants the expo to be "an event with lasting consequences""We would like CIIE to mark a turning point in Chinese trade policies But any measures the Chinese government announces to change its current trading practices must be real and verifiable" Jarrett said"Experience has repeatedly shown that regulatory obfuscation and foot-dragging become barriers to fair trade even when the government has purportedly opened sectors to investment"The Catholic Bishop of Nsukka Diocese the Rt Rev Professor Godfrey Igwebuike Onah on Friday at Ede-Oballa in Nsukka Council Area of Enugu State derided Nigerian politicians over the plight of youths and the generality of the masses in the country Bishop Onah spoke passionately at the funeral mass for Lolo Josephine Oyima Abba mother of the Enugu State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP Engr Vita Abba Shifting to a warning tone Onah cautioned political leaders to retrace their steps as it would not be possible to quench the indignation of Nigerian youths who would soon run out of patience The Bishop cautioned that it would be difficult to stop the youths if they were further pushed to frustration He threw posers to both the government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU on the reasons behind the over three-month-old industrial action by the union Bishop Onah said from his interactions with Nigerians the inability of both parties to end the lingering strike was unjustifiable and inexcusable He said “I know that I have enough persons here and also hopefully enough instruments to carry this message to the ears of the highest echelons of power in this country “The common people the students and their parents whom I represent do not believe the explanations the politicians and the academics are giving for the strike; we don’t believe them and we are appealing to them in God’s name to remember we will all end this way (pointing to the dead); let them end this strike immediately “I want to ask a question; it is a question not a statement; I am asking the leadership of the government in this country- is it realy true that you don’t have enough money to improve upon the quality of education in this country or is it rather that you are stocking up money in preparation for 2015 in order to buy your way to power or to secure your future indefinitely through corruption” Turning to academics he said “is it realy true that you are interested in improving the quality of education in this country or have all of you become victims and hostages of a self-seeking leadership that is only seeking to satisfy its intrest and be settled” The cleric continued “let me warn you it is a warning if you try to push the young people of this country to desperation no amount of money that you hoard will be able to assure you security and safety “When they get angry if I am able to use the expression of our legend the late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe it will be an avalanche of accumulated indignation you can’t stop angry youths you can’t dialogue with a person who has nothing to lose” Personalities present at the funeral mass included Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu Enugu Deputy Governor Mr Sunday Onyebuchi former Governor of the state Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo Speaker of the Enugu State House of

The referee had discovered the moving of the goalposts 20 minutes into the game; but Christensen escaped unpunished unhurt causing bewilderment across the world of football Indeed Akhilesh Singh Yadav Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh is as lucky as Christensen He has changed the goalposts in broad daylight in the case of eviction of VVIPs from government bungalows; but nobody – not even the Supreme Court of India – has reprimanded him so far Life goes on merrily in Lucknow as usual in the meantime Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav BSP chief Mayawati Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh and some others including ND Tiwari and Ram Naresh Yadav who had led the state as chief ministers at one point of time or the other retain their bungalows spread across acres of grandeur at public expense in the state capital They have nothing to worry about After all friend Akhilesh Yadav is there to lend a helping hand even in the face of an adverse Supreme Court judgment Politics does make strange bedfellows Don’t be fooled by what they rant and rave about in the run-up to elections In peacetime post elections they stick together and look after one another’s interests very well It’s a different thing altogether if the poor and the needy suffer in the process File image of Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav PTI Times have changed Nowadays might is right in this land of Gandhi who was known as a half-naked fakir Ram Manohar Lohia who always fought against the high and the mighty on the issue of the poor-man’s per capita income and Lal Bahadur Shastri who had caught the nation’s imagination by his simplicity and righteousness It’s perhaps time the present-day powers that be took a trip down the memory lane to draw inspiration from the simple undemanding lifestyles of some of the great chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh – Pandit Govind Ballabh Pant Sucheta Kripalani Dr Sampoornanand and even Choudhary Charan Singh None of these stalwarts retained any state bungalows after the expiry of their terms And none of them owned any private property in Lucknow either Remember Earlier this month the apex court had ordered eviction of former chief ministers from government bungalows “within two months” The court had also made it clear that the illegal occupants paid all the due rent But far from getting the Supreme Court’s order implemented the UP chief minister hurriedly held a cabinet meeting and decided to amend the relevant Act to circumvent the judicial directive It was done very cleverly Once the proposed amendment to the existing Act is passed by the state legislature and signed by the governor there wouldn’t be any legal loophole left for the apex court to interfere And as for the media and the masses who cares Indeed the goalposts are sought to be moved in the middle of the game — brazenly under the cover of legislative sanction Retaining illegal occupation of government bungalows isn’t a new phenomenon in this country In 2006 the Supreme Court had launched a drive against such squatters by asking the Centre tough questions regarding this culture of illegal occupation of prime state properties not just in Lutyen’s Delhi but across the states as well In this case amicus curiae Ranjit Kumar had informed the court that Jammu and Kashmir topped the list of illegal occupants (605) followed by UP (594) Bengal (361) Orissa (269) Bihar (224) and MP (100) But things hardly improved thereafter Men in power have mastered the art of circumventing scrutiny over the years rather well In 2010 again a lot of hue and cry was raised when it was noticed that VIP squatters in New Delhi included big names such as Jagdish Tytler Renuka Choudhary Ram Vilas Paswan Saleem Shervani Ram Jethmalani and Ashwini Kumar Once again in 2014 the issue was discussed in detail when the nation came to know that those who had been occupying huge bungalows in the national Capital included A Raja Mukul Roy SM Krishna PK Bansal and PC Joshi These names apart Lalu Prasad Yadav and Buta Singh were found to be enjoying ‘extended stay’ in the bungalows thanks to the special concessions given to them by the then UPA government in contravention of a Supreme Court judgement Wait for a minute please With elections round the corner in UP we are about to witness fiery campaign trails and heated allegations and counter allegations Chances are that nobody will give even a casual glance to the squatters and their imposing lifestyles any more All will be lost in sizzling politics Life was returning to near normalcy in West Bengal’s troubled Darjeeling hills as no fresh violence was reported on Sunday but uncertainty prevailed ahead of beginning of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM)-called indefinite shutdown Countering
