Uma Bharti Appeals for Peace, Threatens to go on Hunger Strike September 30, 2016 11:41

Union minister Uma Bharti today appealed for peace between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu on Cauvery water issue. She said, "I may go on hunger strike on the border of the two riparian states if there is any report of the fight between them."A meeting convened by the Centre today to iron out the differences between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka on the impasse failed to achieve any breakthrough. Talking to media persons after chairing the meeting, she said: “no problem should prevail there over water sharing as long as Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister and she is the Union Water Resources Minister." No solution could have arrived at the meeting as Tamil Nadu did not accept Karnataka's proposal for sending a central expert team to assess availability of water in Cauvery basin. “I am appealing to both the states… I am not threatening, it is an appeal, if I hear a single thing (about fight), I am going to sit on hunger strike on the border of the two states,” Bharti said.She added, "the meeting took place close on the heels of Centre’s efforts to broker peace between Odisha and Chhattisgarh over Mahanadi river water, and Telangana and Andhra Pradesh over Krishna water dispute, although this is a state subject."

Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MA&UD) KT Rama Rao has sought the Central assistance of Rs 100 crore for roads that were severely damaged due to heavy rains that lashed Hyderabad recently. KTR met Union minister for urban development M Venkaiah Naidu in New Delhi on Thursday. He sought the Central assistance of over Rs 1,189 crore for repair works of all damaged roads in the city. Due to the recent heavy rainfall in all the municipalities including the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation roads were severely damaged. He also sought special funds for the development of infrastructure in all Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in the state. Rama Rao explained Venkaiah Naidu about the state government’s efforts to strengthen ULBs and requirement of funds for various developmental programs. He also said that the state need assistance for undertaking road restoration works which were damaged in the downpour. Rama Rao also met Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu. According to sources, Rao requested the railway minister to waive Rs 75-80 crore that the South Central Railway (SCR) had been demanding towards Traffic Blockage Charges (TBC) to allow the Metro Rail to be built over the railway lines in Hyderabad. The three corridors of Metro cross SCR railway lines at eight points in the city.

This should be withdrawn as no such charges were levied on the Metros in Bengaluru and Chennai,” Rao reportedly told Suresh Prabhu. Also Read: KTR Swings into Action After CMs Order BY M. DIVYA SRI

India-Pak N-war: 21 mn may die, half of ozone layer will vanish September 29, 2016 20:45

Hypothetical as it maybe the detrimental point here would be who defends and who is the Aggressor. Granted Pakistan has never been able to overpower India but neither has India been able to eliminate or eternally neutralize the threat of Pakistan the way Israel did with Egypt and Jordan. If India and Pakistan fought a war detonating 100 nuclear warheads (around half of their combined arsenal), each equivalent to a 15-kiloton Hiroshima bomb, more than 21 million people will be directly killed, about half the world’s protective ozone layer would be destroyed, and a “nuclear winter” would cripple the monsoons and agriculture worldwide. Pakistan has an estimated 110 to 130 nuclear warheads as of 2015–an increase from an estimated 90 to 110 warheads in 2011–according to this report from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a global disarmament advocacy. India is estimated to have 110 to 120 nuclear warheads. It does not really matter if India has fewer nuclear weapons than Pakistan, IndiaSpendreported in April, 2015, primarily because of the doctrine of “mutually assured destruction”, or MAD, as it is commonly known (See this IndiaSpend report for more about India’s nuclear weapons program). 66% Pakistan’s nuclear weapons on ballistic missiles As many as 66% Pakistani nuclear warheads are mounted on 86 land-based ballistic missiles, according to Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists data estimates. Pakistan’s Hatf (named after the sword of Prophet Muhammad) series of ballistic missiles has been developed–and is still under development–keeping India in mind. A major attack by Pakistan’s nuclear-tipped medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs) would likely target India’s four major metropolitan cities–New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai (depending on where the missile is fired from), according to Sameer Patil, fellow, national security, ethnic conflict and terrorism at Gateway House, a think tank in Mumbai. The MRBMs would also target “the major commands of the Indian Army”, Patil told IndiaSpend. Nearly half (40) of Pakistan’s ballistic missile warheads could be mated to Ghauri (named after 12th-century Afghan king Shahbuddin Ghauri, also known as Muhammad of Ghauri) MRBMs. The missile has a claimed range of 1,300 km and can target Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Bhopal and Lucknow, according to this 2006 report on Pakistan’s ballistic missile programme by the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bengaluru. Pakistan has an estimated eight warheads which could be mated to the Shaheen (Falcon) II. This MRBM has a range of 2,500 km and can target most major Indian cities, including Kolkata on the east coast.   India’s triad: Submarine, missile and aircraft India possesses weapons of mass destruction in the form of nuclear weapons and, in the past, chemical weapons. Though India has not made any official statements about the size of its nuclear arsenal, recent estimates suggest that India has 110 nuclear weapons consistent with earlier estimates that it had produced enough weapons-grade plutonium for up to 75–110 nuclear weapons. Biological weapons: India has a well-developed biotechnology infrastructure that includes numerous pharmaceutical production facilities and bio-containment laboratories (including BSL-3 and BSL-4) for working with lethal pathogens. It also has highly qualified scientists with expertise in infectious diseases. Some of India's facilities are being used to support research and development for biological weapons (BW) defence purposes. India has ratified the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and pledges to abide by its obligations. There is no clear evidence, circumstantial or otherwise, that directly points toward an offensive BW program. India does possess the scientific capability and infrastructure to launch an offensive BW program, but has chosen not to do so. In terms of delivery, India also possesses the capability to produce aerosols and has numerous potential delivery systems ranging from crop dusters to sophisticated ballistic missiles. India's no-first-use policy: India has a declared nuclear no-first-use policy and is in the process of developing a nuclear doctrine based on "credible minimum deterrence." In August 1999, the Indian government released a draft of the doctrine  which asserts that nuclear weapons are solely for deterrence and that India will pursue a policy of "retaliation only".
