German jetliner en route from Barcelona, Spain, to Dusseldorf, Germany, plunged from the sky on Tuesday and slammed into the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board. Helicopters and rescue personnel swarmed for rescue operations. The authorities and executives of the airline have no immediate explanation for the cause of the crash. Officials said that they have recovered one of the jet’s black boxes, the cockpit voice recorder, which captures up to two hours of the pilots’ conversations as well as other cockpit noises, including any alarms that would have sounded as the plane descended.The audio of the cockpit voice recorder showed one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not get back in before the plane went down. "The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer," an unnamed investigator told. "And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer." "You can hear he is trying to smash the door down," the investigator added."We have just been able to extract a useable audio data file," BEA director Remi Jouty told a news conference. "We have not yet been able to study and to establish an exact timing for all the sounds and words heard on this file," he said.By Premji

Hooda government allowed Vadra to loot March 26, 2015 11:04

CAG report for the year 2013-14, tabled in the Haryana Assembly today, has come down heavily on the Town and Country Planning Department. "The department neither at the time of granting in-principle approval nor at the time of formal approval for transfer of licenses ensured that net profit beyond 15% of the total cost accrues to public exchequer. This enabled the developers to earn huge profits merely by selling the land while the government had to forego sizeable amount," the CAG report said. This statement by the CAG showcases how Hooda government helped, supported and colluded with Vadra to loot the state’s asset. The congress spinners have started their dirty tricks to defend the son-in-law of the first family of the Congress.Congress dismissed the reports that CAG has found the erstwhile Congress government of Haryana granting "undue favours" to Robert Vadra's company and said "there is no such finding of wrongdoing". "Instead of proceeding to hold the previous Congress Government in Haryana guilty based on half truth, innuendos and insinuations, we must examine the facts," party spokesman Randeep Surjewala said. The facts points fingers towards congress and its first family.Surjewala said the Accountant General of Haryana has neither indicted the previous Congress government nor Robert Vadra or Skylight Hospitality Private Limited for any violation of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975 or any rules or policy. "There is no such finding of wrongdoing as is being sought to be alleged," he said.Surjewala's reactions came on the day when the Haryana Government during the Congress regime came under attack from the Comptroller and Auditor General for granting "undue favours" to builders, including Robert Vadra's Skylight Hospitality.By Premji

Manmohan Singh Challenges Summons March 25, 2015 18:19

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has appealed before the Supreme Court to exempt him from appearing in a Delhi court next month in connection with the mega coal scam. Mr Singh, 82, was ordered to appear in a CBI court over accusations of criminal conspiracy and corruption in the allegedly illegal award of a coal field in Odisha.  Billionaire Kumar Mangalam Birla is also asked to appear on April 8. Dr Singh has not been charged with any crime, but is being investigated for criminal breach of trust, criminal conspiracy, cheating and corruption.Congress party had drubbed the summons a backlash against its opposition to economic reforms that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to push through Parliament. The Congress high command has failed to acknowledge that the summons was issued by the CBI court and not by the Modi government.In 2012, the national auditor said 1.86 lakh crores had been lost because coal mining licenses had been issued without transparency. Judge Bharat Parashar said in the summons "a well planned conspiracy was hatched" to award Hindalco the field after Mr Birla actively lobbied Dr Singh, who was at the time acting as Coal Minister. The document does not establish which politicians or officials may have benefited but said Dr Singh's office showed "undue interest" in the matter.By Premji
