Hyd Woman Stuck In Saudi, Family Seeks Sushma Swaraj’s Help:- A Hyderabad woman has been allegedly stuck in the clutches of her employer in Saudi Arabia. This is yet another case of exploitation of an Indian National overseas which has come into limelight. The woman who goes by the name, Humera went to Riyadh on July 23, believing the false promises of the agent Sayeed. He assured her that she would get an opportunity to do “UMRAH”, which is necessary for Muslims to do once in a life. The agent told Humera that on a monthly salary of Rs 25,000 per month, she would also have to work as a caretaker of a small family. Few days after, she reportedly told her elder sister, Reshma  that her employers were harassing her mentally, physically and sexually and asked her sister to rescue her from there at any cost or else she would commit suicide. Reshma said, “My sister is often beaten and is not even given adequate food to eat. One of the employer also dragged my sisters hand with bad intentions. She screamed and ran away from his room. Later, they used to confine my sister in a locked room for four to five days and threatened Humera with dire consequences if she tried to run away.” Feeling helpless, Reshma firstly approached the local police station, but no action was taken against the agent. She then  sought the help of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to rescue her sibling. SUPRAJA

Hyderabad HC Issues Notices To TS Govt On Miyapur Land Scam:- Seeking a CBI investigation into the Miyapur land scam, the Telangana state government, the Centre, the CBI and private respondents have been issued notices by the Hyderabad High Court. Moreover, the court directed them to file the counter affidavits on a PIL, filed by BJP spokesperson and advocate M. Raghu Nandan Rao. The PIL was dealt by a division bench comprising acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice J.Uma Devi. An additional affidavit was filed by the petitioner, alleging that several bigwigs including the revenue minister was involved in the scam. Mr. Rao also alleged that the police had failed in arresting the kingpin, P. Sanjiv Prasad behind the scam. It would cost the exchequer Rs 1,000 crore, if there was no unbiased probe. The government itself had admitted that 1,509 registrations took place in with regard to Miyapur lands, alleged Rao. The case had been adjourned to September 13, by the bench. HC doubts offer on Agri Gold On Wednesday, the Hyderabad High Court suggested an unnamed company to deposit Rs 100 crore with the court to prove its bonafides. This unnamed company is proposing to take over the assets and liabilities of the scam-hit Agri Gold Group. The Telangana Agri Gold Customers and Agents Welfare Association filed a PIL, which was heard by a division bench comprising Justice V. Rama-subramanian and Justice S.V. Bhatt. The bench said that the court would grant it time to do due diligence for taking over the company, once the deposit was made. On Wednesday, the bench was informed by senior counsel Sri Raghuram. Raghuram said that two teams of chartered accountants and lawyers had prepared a written account on Agri Gold assets and liabilities. The bench reacted with skepticism to it. It said it could take six months or more for due diligence, and there was no guarantee that it would not get bogged down. Counsel said at this stage it may be too much for the company and offered to file an intervention petition. The bench said that the successful bids will be confirmed on August 31, if the Agri Gold was not able to bring buyers for twice the rate fetched in the bid. HC seeks date for debt panel On Wednesday, the TS government was asked by the Hyderabad High Court asked to inform it by Monday, to constitute the debt relief commission for farmers, how much time it required.

Both TDP and YSRCP took things prestigiously for the by polls and they have been campaigning throughout the constituency. YS Jagan conducted massive meetings and he badly criticised TDP and Chandra Babu Naidu. Even Chandra Babu Naidu has been personally monitoring the happenings of the by polls and the campaign through review meetings on regular basis.

However Pawan Kalyan yesterday revealed that he is not in a mood to contest in any elections before 2019 Assembly and Parliament elections. He even said that he will not be supporting any political party for the Nandyal by polls. The biggest twist comes here after former MP from Nandyal, Gangula Pratap Reddy switched towards TDP. He took this step yesterday and joined in the presence of Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu and Atchannaidu. This came a day after YS Jagan had a lunch meeting with Gangula Prabhakar Reddy at his residence. Gangula brothers are said to have a strong hold in Nandyal and they can sure make a strong impact. This comes as a major blow for YSRCP after Gangula Pratap Reddy joined TDP. The leading party is said to take the advantage on this for sure. Gangula Prabhakar Reddy made his move to YSRCP early this year from TDP. We have to wait and seen how Gangula Pratap Reddy’s move to TDP will make an impact on Nandyal by polls.
