Land pooling: I will talk to Pawan- Naidu August 28, 2015 10:14

“The state government needs more land as per the proposed capital construction plan, but as the farmers are not supporting to it, we are not able to move forward, but having no other choice, I will be talking to Janasena President, Pawan Kalyan soon,” Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said.Land pooling has become the major issue for the AP government now. Neither opposition parties nor Pawan Kalyan is supporting the land pooling. So regarding this, Naidu spoke in the public meeting yesterday and said, “Andhra Pradesh already lost much in the recent times, many opposition parties are trying to target AP state and obstructing the development, no more such attempts will be encouraged.”“I already spoke to NITI AYOG and Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the injustice done to AP, I am even ready to talk to Pawan Kalyan soon and take the possible steps towards the land pooling.”“No one should commit suicides for special status for AP or involve in any other serious issues. Without the special status, AP is going to lose more,” Naidu said. 25 committees could not move me an inch - Naidu    Countering the opposition comments, Naidu said, “The leaders who are commenting about the corruption in TDP, should know about their own status. During YS Rajashekar Reddy government, 25 committees could not move me an inch, I’m going to complete Polavaram project and give water to Rayalaseema and also perform Patti seems projects works.”However it seems, Naidu is not in a position to compromise in any issue, especially land pooling, but Pawan is also very strict about the land pooling. The duo meeting is expected to create some sounding arguments.By Phanindra

Yesterday, central minister Venkaiah Naidu invited the local and international investors to come forward and invest in the smart city mission, assuring them that, they would return with profits.     Venkaiah Naidu released smart cities list, where 98 cities are included. In the list, Uttar Pradesh got the largest share of developing 13 smart cities, followed by Tamil Nadu, which got 12 cities in its list. Speaking in the meeting, Venkaiah Naidu said, “Both national and international investors are looking for opportunities in the backdrop of the recent financial crisis, people are searching for safe investments. I offer smart cities as the safest investment because land is going to be there, structures are going to be there, so the returns are assured.” Also read: Prestigious smart city projects clearedThe Smart City Mission promotes integrated city planning, where the government’s policies such as Swachh Bharat Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation complement each other, with an aim to achieve “inclusive growth”.  Answering about the delays in the project approvals at the state level, Venkaiah Naidu said, “The new parameters are set in such a way, that it can “perform or perish”. Due to this the ministry imposes fines on the states that delay the project for more than 60 days. So no municipal councils can miss the opportunity of recasting the country’s urban landscape.”   “I held three consultations with the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Defence Ministry and the Ministry of Environment,” Venkaiah Naidu said.   The above mentioned 98 cities and towns will be developed into smart cities within five years, by Urban Development Ministry, providing 100 crores to each city. Among 98 cities, 24 are capital cities, another 24 are business and industrial centres, 18 are culture and tourism influenced areas, five are port cities and three are education and health care hubs.    Also read: Global IT giant to make Vizag smarter Missed cities in smart cities list Nine cities, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Shimla, Puducherry, Daman, Patna, Itanagar, Thiruvananthapuram and Gangtok did not qualify for being a smart city. “This non-inclusion goes to prove that the selection in the first stage of competition was not swayed by the status or importance of the cities and the selection was objective and as per the stipulated criteria,” Mr. Naidu said. The finance generation at the state level and through the private investments will be a part in the success of the smart cities mission. Already Rs.48000 crores are set aside by the government and the state governments are required to generate another Rs.48000 crores, and thus develop the smart cities with a huge amount of Rs.96000 crores, Venkaiah Naidu said.By Phanindra

Common blood test can predict future hypertension risk August 27, 2015 19:26

The researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine have found that a common blood test which is used to verify heart muscle damage from heart attacks could also identify future risk of developing hypertension. People with higher levels of the cardiac regulatory protein troponin T are more likely to be diagnosed with hypertension within a few years. For the study, the researcher’s analyzed blood samples obtained in the late 1980s and early 1990s from more than 5,000 people enrolled in a long-term multicenter research known as the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study. None of the participants had clinical diagnosis of hypertension at the beginning of the study although a small subgroup but about 27 percent had high-normal blood pressures. "Our data suggest that the high-sensitivity troponin test could flag people with normal blood pressure in the doctor's office who are at high risk for hypertension and other poor outcomes," Elizabeth Selvin, senior study investigator, said in a statement.The study was published in the journal Circulation.  By Lizitha

Women live longer than men, finds study August 27, 2015 19:03

Life expectancy of people in India has increased by 6.9 years for men between 1990 and 2013 and 10.3 years for women during the same period, according to the study. “Biologically, women are considered stronger and their survival tendencies are better than men. But sociologically, women tend to get treated far less than men in India,” said Dr. Nobhojit Roy, surgeon and public health specialist from BARC Hospital, Mumbai.According to the survey conducted in 2013, the top ten causes of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in both sexes in India were from ischemic heart disease, COPD, TB, lower respiratory infections, neonatal preterm birth, neonatal encephalopathy, diarrhoea, stroke, road injuries, and low back and neck pain.The fastest-growing leading causes of health loss for Indian men between 1990 and 2013 were self-harm, ischemic heart disease and stroke, which increased at rates of 149.9 per cent, 79.9 per cent, and 59.8 per cent respectively. In the case of women, the largest increases among the leading causes of disability-adjusted life years occurred for ischemic heart disease (69 per cent), depressive disorders (66.1 per cent), and stroke (36.8 per cent). Only ischemic heart disease was among the 10 leading causes of health loss for women in 1990.The scientists found that stroke and depressive disorders are new causes of health loss seen in 2013 but not in 1990 in Indian women. “More awareness of mental health issues and better detection and documentation could be one of the reasons for depressive disorders to show up in the list,” said Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Director-General of the Indian Council of Medical Research.By Lizitha

Srimanthudu new scenes August 27, 2015 16:42

Director Koratala Siva added new scenes in Srimanthudu movie, as per the demand of the audience. When a movie gets negative talk, the makers tries to trim the movie, by cutting a few of the boring scenes. But when a movie is successful and fetching good profits, the makers add the scenes, after a good number of days of movie release. Right from the beginning, this is being carried on as a tradition. In fact, in the recent times, Attharinti Daredi, Mirchi movie makers also added extra scenes after a month of release date. Now it is the time for Srimanthudu movie makers to follow this tradition.  Now, 3 weeks after the release of Srimanthudu, director Koratala Siva has added two scenes in the movie. Among them, one scene is Villain Sampath warning Rajendra Prasad and others to surrender their lands and the other one is, Shruti Haasan, Rajendra Prasad and the entire villagers are about to leave the village. The second scene is seen in Srimanthudu trailer in the beginning and also in Srimanthudu posters. But the director kept the scene aside during the editing, but upon the demand from the fans, he has now decided to put the scene, along with Sampath warning scene.      As of now, Srimanthudu crossed Attharintiki Daredi records recently, and is just next to Baahubali. The film is expected to make more profits, with newly added scenes.    By Phanindra

After Pawan, TDP leader is opposing land pooling now August 27, 2015 15:56

Deputy Chief Minister and revenue minister KE Krishna Murthy said that, he is against land pooling.If the oppositions oppose the land pooling, it might not hurt the government much. The same thing was happened, when YSRCP chief Jagan and other opposition parties opposed the land pooling. Pawan opposing land pooling is a major minus to Naidu  But when Pawan Kalyan, who supported TDP during the elections, and was one of the reasons for the party, to form the government in the state, opposed the land pooling, the issue went very viral among the TDP officials. A few of the TDP officials busted out on Pawan, but AP CM Chandrababu Naidu, stopped them from doing so, and in fact, he even is not able to counter Pawan, keeping in mind, the craze of Pawan, among the farmers and the youth. Naidu shock by KE Krishnamurthy opposing land pooling Now, not any opposition party or friend Pawan Kalyan, the own party member and that too Deputy CM Krishna Murthy, opposed the land pooling. The revenue minister, who is supposed to be the key member in CRDA, is kept aside by CM Chandrababu. It is known that, KE many times opposed Naidu’s policies on the public platform itself and this might be the reason for Naidu to skip KE in CRDA. Speaking about the issue, KE said, “I am against the land pooling, but as municipal administration minister Narayana, is performing the key role in this aspect, I am not able to come forward, already more than enough land is pooled from the land pooling, so the land acquisition should be stopped at least now.” KE intention behind opposing land pooling    It seems, for keeping KE aside in CRDA, he is showing his anger on the government by opposing the land pooling. However, after Pawan Kalyan opposition on land pooling, receiving opposes from the own party leader would show a negative impact on AP government.       By Phanindra
