AFSPA to be withdrawn in Tripura, due to decline in militancy May 28, 2015 17:02

18 years after the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) was enforced in Tripura, the state government has decided to withdraw the Act. "In view of the significant taming of terrorism in Tripura, the council of ministers decided to withdraw the AFSPA from the entire state," Chief Minister Manik Sarkar told. "The security forces recently exhaustively reviewed the law and order situation in the state. Considering the reports of the security forces, the council of ministers decided to recommend to the union home ministry to issue a notification to withdraw the AFSPA," he said. "The decisions were taken in view of the decrease in militancy-related incidents in Tripura over the last few years. However, the security forces would be watchful over the situation," Sarkar said. "When the Act was imposed there were only 42 police stations and two-third of the entire police station areas were under this act," CM Sarkar said.Tripura has seen a rapid decline in militancy in the past five years as hundreds of militants have surrendered. The ruling Left Front, who in power in Tripura since 1993, has been contemplating the withdrawal of the law and had been supported by  opposition parties like the Congress and BJP, who are also in favour the move. The home department said, "Though the four-and-half-decade-old terrorism has been tamed in Tripura, the state government is always cautious about the terror outfits and their activities."The most important evidence regarding the decline of militancy and separatism in Tripura is displayed when the state recorded above 84 percent voter turnout in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, highest voter turnouts in the country, according to the Election Commission.AFSPA empowers to security forces with unlimited powers to shoot at sight, arrest anybody without a warrant and carry out searches without consent. The central act was enforced in Tripura on 16 February, 1997 when terrorism was at its peak in the state, which shares an 856-km border with Bangladesh. Many local rights groups and political parties in Tripura had accused the act as "draconian" and demanded its repeal. Tribal parties such as the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura and the Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura had been demanding the withdrawal of the Act for a long time, saying that it is aimed at suppressing the State’s 33 percent tribal population.By Premji

NTR is my inspiration- Naidu“NTR never escaped from his responsibilities, he was always with the Telugu people, to look after them. In fact, he was my inspiration and its my luck to work along with him in those days.

Lord Hanuman is alive? May 28, 2015 15:59

We heard about the death of many beings, but there is no such proof which said ‘Hanuman’ is dead.  According to the Hindu mythology, some beings continue to be in the same form across the ages. So as per this logic, Hanuman might be in this category.   Believing the estimation to be true, few of the intellectuals said that, Hanuman is immortal and he is blessed with it on his wish to be available to all the devotees of Rama as long as long as his name is chanted by the people. The below photograph where you can observe Hanuman is taken in 1988, which is just a few years back.This is the foot print of Hanuman at Lepakshi temple which is in the border of AP and Karnataka.

Soy supplements intake doesn't cure Asthma May 28, 2015 13:19

Previous studies have suggested that soy intake leads to decreased asthma severity. It was disapproved by the recent findings by the study conducted by the Northwestern Medical medicine and the American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Network, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). "You are what you eat, but that's a whole constellation of foods, not just a single food or a single component of a food," said first author Lewis Smith, professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.The study examined the effects of soy in 386 adults and children aged 12 or older with poorly controlled asthma. All were taking medicine to treat their asthma but none were consuming soy. In the randomized study, half of the participants took a soy isoflavone supplement twice daily for six months, and the other half took a placebo. "This study highlights why it is so important to perform well-designed, placebo-controlled studies when associations are reported between specific nutrients and disease outcomes," Smith said.By Lizitha
