PM Narendra Modi Pays Homage to Subhas Chandra Bose January 23, 2017 10:22

On the eve of the 120th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday paid rich homage. “I salute Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary. His valour played a major role in freeing India from colonialism. Netaji Bose was a great intellectual who always thought about the interests & well being of the marginalized sections of society,” PM Modi said in a series of tweets. “Files relating to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose are available on http://www.netajipapers.gov.in. Honored that our Government got the opportunity to declassify files relating to Netaji Bose & fulfill a popular demand pending for decades,” PM Modi said. Last year, the Narendra Modi government revealed many digital copies of 100 secret files which stated some facts on Subhas Chandra Bose death. The prime minister had put these files on digital display at the National Archives of India (NAI) in New Delhi. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee also demanded that Netaji is given the title of “leader of the nation”, same as Mahatma Gandhiji was honored with the title of “father of the nation”. Without taking any names, she said, “We all know that Netaji was deprived of due respect by some people. It’s time we fulfill our duties in regard to our great leader.” Kejriwal Asks Modi to Make his Wife & Mother Stay with him BY M. DIVYA SRI

Protesters in Marina Beach Threatens to Commit Suicide January 23, 2017 10:01

A new clash broke up between agitated locals and the police in Chennai at Marina Beach. Protestors demanded a permanent solution and not a 'temporary' ordinance for Jallikattu. The police requested the protesters to leave Marina Beach in a peaceful manner as state government promulgated an ordinance on Jallikattu on Saturday. "It's wrong that ordinance will dissolve after 6 months, the fact is that after the introduction of the ordinance, it will be introduced in assembly. It will be introduced and regularised, now itself the law is an act. The ordinance is for Jallikattu permanent solution. SC stayed Jallikattu so lawmakers got ordinance," the police said in a statement. The protesters were also asked to end the agitation. However, the locals said that "they needed time to discuss the ordinance and demanded half day's time." But police thronged into the beach and started removing the agitators forcefully, which resulted in huge clashes. This led to several protesters threatening to commit suicide at the beach. Police also closed all the routes leading to Marina Beach. Barricades were also put to prevent people from assembling again. Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam was not allowed by protesters to inaugurate the Alanganallur Jallikattu, which was later cancelled. Talking to media persons, the Chief Minister said that "even though Jallikattu was not held at Alanganallur, it was organised smoothly in many other places across the state." The governor will be replacing bill from an ordinance which was passed on Sunday. The discussion will be tabled in state Assembly when the first Assembly session will begin on January 23.

Jadgadalpur-Hirakhand Express Derailed in Odisha, 40 Killed & 50 Injured January 23, 2017 09:26

In a tragic accident, at least 40 people have been killed and around 50 were injured, when the Bhubaneswar-bound Jadgadalpur-Hirakhand Express derailed around 11.15 pm on Saturday at Koneru in Andhra Pradesh, 24 km from Odisha. A total of seven coaches which included a luggage van, two general compartments, two sleeper coaches, one AC three-tier coach and one AC two-tier coach and the engine went off the track and crashed into a stationary goods train on the next track. "The reason behind the accident was yet to be ascertained", East Coast Railway chief public relations officer J.P. Mishra said on Sunday. “There are indications of foul play as a goods train passed the same track just two hours before the accident. The inspection by the patrol team also found the track okay yesterday (Saturday),” Railway spokesperson Anil Saxena said. “The driver applied emergency brakes after feeling a big jerk and heard a loud sound. The area is Naxal-prone and the incident happened just ahead of Republic Day," he added.   Passengers who survived in the mishap said that "it was a horrific experience when the train in which they were travelling jumped off the track near Kuneru in Andhra Pradesh." “It was horrific and frightening. I was among the lucky ones to have escaped narrowly after the mishap that struck late last night,” said Ranjan Mohanty, Baripada College principal. Another passenger named Mohanty was returning in the Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Hirakhand Express train after attending a wedding ceremony of a relative. He said that "I was sleeping and woke up with a sudden jerk and deafening sound to find himself on the floor. I escaped with minor injuries and fractures." He added that "the adjacent S-9 coach was one of the worst affected. I was among the survivors who were sent by a special train to Bhubaneswar via Sambalpur from where he would proceed to Baripada." 3 Trains Canceled & 81 Trains Delayed Due to Dense Fog in Delhi BY M.
