Kamal Haasan Apologizes For Supporting Demonetization October 18, 2017 15:54

Kamal Haasan Apologizes For Supporting Demonetization:- Tamil Superstar, Kamal Haasan has apologized for supporting PM Narendra Modi’s demonetization move. He said that he took the decision “in a hurry”. Haasan, in a column titled, ‘A big apology’ in the Tamil magazine said “I owe a big apology to the people for supporting demonetization in a hurry. I initially thought demonetization move was going to curb black money and that people should bear with the problems during that transition.” The actor said his stance was criticized by many of his friends, who understand economics. “I consoled myself, saying that while the plan was good, there may have been some problems with implementation,” he said. He further said that he had his doubts, when more and more people voiced their anger. “The sign of a good leader is to accept his/her mistake. Gandhi accepted his mistake and leaders today can also accept mistakes. If the PM accepts his mistake in this case, then I will salute him.” The demonetization scheme was supported by many celebrities and Haasan was one among them. Salute Mr Modi. This move has to be celebrated across political party lines. Most importantly by earnest taxpayers,” the actor had tweeted in November last year. This twist comes at a time, when Haasan is all set to enter the politics. Earlier, he had also made it clear that his color was definitely not saffron. “Rajinikanth is a suitable ally for the BJP. I am a rationalist,” the superstar told a leading news channel. The Centre’s stand on beef was also opposed by the actor. He said that the government should indeed give food to the people of India, as it cannot give the menu. Haasan had said that none of the already-existing parties represented his beliefs. And that is the reason he wanted to launch his own political party. All the parties in Tamil Nadu were corrupt, and he was determined to rid of corruption in Tamil Nadu, said the actor. The Superstar had said that his political outfit would be announced on the occasion of his 63rd birthday, which falls on November 7. to chalk out a strategy and give it a final shape, Haasan had met his fans in Chennai, before his birthday. Coming to his high-profile meeting with Arvind Kejriwal, the ‘Hey Ram’ actor had said, “I did not go to Kejriwal, he came to me. It was kind of him.” It was supposed by many that it might be a sign of his aligning with the AAP.   Another Tamil superstar who is also flirting with the idea of joining politics, is none other than Haasan’s contemporary Rajnikanth.

“Online Chat” Launched By IT Dept To Answer Taxpayers Queries:- An “online chat” service has been launched by the Income Tax (IT) Department for taxpayers. This new service is implemented so that the taxpayers can seek answers to their basic queries and doubts relating to direct tax issues. On the main page of the department’s website - www.incometaxindia.gov.in/, a window has been opened with a prominent icon stating “Live Chat Online- ask your query”. “A team of experts from the department and independent tax practitioners has been deputed to answer the general queries of a taxpayer. This first-time initiative is aimed to enhance taxpayer services in the country,” the officer said. Based on the feedback received by the department, more features would be added to the online chat system, said the officer. A person can enter the ‘chat room’, by furnishing an email-id and ask questions as a guest. “An option has also been provided to the taxpayer for emailing the entire chat to their ids for future reference,” the officer said.

Yuvraj Singh Booked For Domestic Violence By Sister-In-Law October 18, 2017 13:22

Yuvraj Singh Booked For Domestic Violence By Sister-In-Law:- According to reports, a domestic violence case has been filed by Big Boss 10 contestant Akanksha Sharma against husband Zoravar Singh, mother-in-law Shabnam Singh and brother-in-law Yuvraj Singh. As of now, Akansha has refused to speak and will speak on the matter after the hearing on October 21. The development has been confirmed by her lawyer, Swati Singh Mallik.   Speaking on the issue, Swati said: “Yes, Akanksha has filed a case of domestic violence against Yuvraj, Zoravar and their mother Shabnam.” Swati also said that a complaint had been filed by Shabnam against Akanksha for recovery of some jewelry in all likelihood. “This recovery could possibly be of some jewelry, it’s not of money,” she said.   Asked how Yuvraj was involved, the lawyer said: “Look, domestic violence does not mean just physical violence. It also means mental and financial torture, which can be attributed to Yuvraj. Yuvraj was a mute spectator to the suffering caused to my client by Zoravar and his mother.” “When Yuvraj and Zoravar’s mother was pressurising Akanksha to have a baby, Yuvraj too had joined in to do the same. He too told Akanksha ‘to have a baby’. He was hand-in-glove with his mother. Yuvraj would even tell her that she should obey his mother because she was the most superior person in the house. That lady is extremely dominant. Zoravar and Akanksha were at her mercy for every decision.” SUPRAJA

Kerala HC Upholds BCCI Appeal On Sreesanth October 18, 2017 13:09

Kerala HC Upholds BCCI Appeal On Sreesanth:- The appeal made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) against the earlier single bench verdict was upheld by a division bench of the Kerala High Court on Tuesday. The verdict that lifted the life ban on the former Indian pacer S Sreesanth in August this year. A judicial review on the life ban imposed by the BCCI cannot be conducted by the court, ruled a division bench of Chief Justice Navniti Prasad Singh, and hence the appeal was upheld. For the past two days, the appeal petition was heard by the court and delivered its verdict. The verdict for the time being ended his hopes of not just playing for Kerala Ranji side in its upcoming matches. But the practice sessions at any place that comes under the BCCI or any state cricket association, cannot be undertaken by him. Addressing the media, Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) secretary Jayesh George said that ever since the ban was lifted, Sreesanth was supported by KCA. “We had made arrangements for him to undergo a full fitness test so as to make him match fit. Now with this verdict, we will now have to respect it,” said George. Approaching the apex court is the only available option available for Sreesanth, and the bowler is likely to go in appeal against this verdict, according to sources. The Delhi High Court, in 2015, exonerated the now 34-year-old pacer along with two other players in the case registered by Delhi Police which invoked the Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA). But, a life ban was slapped by the BCCI Disciplinary Committee headed by the present Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. He approached the Kerala HC, following this. The ban was lifted on Sreesanth on August 7. This indeed could be be a shocking blow to former Indian pacer S Sreesanth. SUPRAJA
