Vellore’s Christian Medical College Is Leaving 99 Of Its 100 MBBS Seats Vacant This Year

The first Tamil Nadu Vellore Christian Medical College has decided to leave 99 of its 100 MBBS vacant posts this year. The Centenary Minority Institution seeks the right to select qualified NEET students through its own lawyer. At present, committees created by central and state governments elect students through a centralized council.

However, the university only admitted a student – the son of a soldier who was nominated for MBBS and a candidate for a super specialty program that has 62 seats. The university says it serves 180 missionary hospitals in rural and remote areas across the country where, at the end of the course, doctors have to pay a low salary for two years.

“We selected students from around the country with exceptional social concerns, to serve and to help, and who have shown empathy.” Many of the students we choose come from a mediocre environment in remote areas and return and serve in these areas. As a minority institution, we believe we have the right to choose from qualified candidates who fulfill our vision, “said Dr. Anna Pulimood, director.

The Association of Physicians for Social Equality says that CMC’s action may not be the right choice. Dr. G R Rabindranath, Secretary-General, said: “As a developing country, we need more UG doctors and specialized doctors. At the moment, admissions to these courses are a considerable loss of India’s health system.”

Last year, the Supreme Court exempted the university and admitted the students to its own council. CMC officials say the top court is likely to give its verdict in October and whether the court will fill in the remaining seats. In affirming that the admission process to the CMC is much older than the Indian Medical Council, the director added: “In the past, the Supreme Court has repeatedly stated that our admission system is fair, transparent and non-exploitative.”

CMC Vellore is a self-funded institution and officials say it charges much lower fees than government medical universities – an annual fee of Rs. 3,000 per MBBS.

Trump administration to Congress: Defence cooperation with India important for Indo-US ties

The Trump government told the US Congress that defense cooperation with India would be an important pillar of the bilateral relationship as it needs the country to be a net security provider in the Indo-Pacific region. The Trump regime reported that Congress “strongly supports” the transfers of F-18 and F-16 combat proposals submitted by Boeing and Lockheed Martin, respectively. These proposals have the potential to bring Indo-European defense links to the next level, he said. “The reason why India’s defense cooperation is so vital to the interests of the United States because we need India to be a net security provider in the Indo-Pacific, a region that serves as a focal point for trade and commerce with nearly half of the world’s 90,000 commercial vessels under the United States flag and two-thirds of the oil sold in the region, “said Alice Wells, Deputy Assistant Secretary for South Asian and Central Asian Affairs, to a subcommittee of the Congress in a written communication.

Wells hopes to testify before the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific on “Maintaining US influence in South Asia: 2018 Budget” on Thursday. He argued that the Indo-Asian Pacific region is also home to nearly half of the world’s population and some of the fastest growing economies on earth. Working with like-minded partners, India has the strategic and economic potential to defend the international order that has served so much humanity in the last seven decades. the investments we make in our security partnership will now pay dividends for decades, “he said.
As a democracy, the fight against terrorism is the top priority for India and the United States, he said. “India is in a dangerous neighborhood, where terrorist attacks have killed both Indians and Americans.

Joint training and capacity building are essential to expanding our cooperation in the TC area, “he said, citing the Department of State’s Terrorism Assistance Program (ATA) in which more than 1,100 Indian security has been trained in the United States since 2009. Wells said India is one of the United States’ key strategic partners in the Indo-Pacific region. ” In the words of President Trump, India and the United States has never been so strong, it has never been so good, “he said in testimony. Meeting with the Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi in June to give a positive and ambitious program to strengthen bilateral ties, particularly in the fields of defense, energy and trade, “he added.

In relation to trade between the United States and India in its written communication, Wells said that the economic relationship was largely on a positive trajectory and the United States should do more to balance the trade deficit between the two total US $ 30,000 millions last year. “We are working closely with the USTR and the Department of Commerce to address the concerns of the US business community in India, including tariff barriers and subsidies, location policies, investment restrictions and intellectual property issues that limit market access and prevent US exporters and companies from entering the Indian market, “said M Wells.” Our bilateral trade has more than doubled in the last decade, from $ 45 billion in 200 6 to more than $ 114 billion in 2016.

US exports to India support more than 260,000 jobs in the United States in all 50 states, “he said. committed to ensuring that the trade relationship with India is fair and reciprocal and continues to push India to open its markets and create a playing field for US companies. “According to Wells, the great opportunities lie in the civil aviation market in India In early January 2017, SpiceJet, an Indian private carrier, announced an order for 155 new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, taking its account for the aircraft model to 205 total aircraft.The final assembly of the MAX 737 takes place in Renton, Washington.

CBI sources said that if more than 15 bidding documents have been received for both hotels, the IRCTC has no records of bidders other than Sujata Hotels.

Human Rights Watch demands prompt probe in journalist Gauri Lankesh’s murder

A major human rights organization called for a swift investigation into the murder of the authentic French journalist Gauri Lankesh, and said that the “possibility” of a “politically motivated” tie-breaker should be thoroughly investigated. Lankesh, 55, known for his leftist outlook and his outspoken view of Hindutva’s politics, was shot to death by unidentified attackers on Tuesday in Bangalore. Human Rights Watch said the Indian authorities must act swiftly on the announced investigation into the killing of unidentified gunmen of Lankesh, a “French journalist” who “campaigned for democracy, secularism and civil liberties” and was a critic vocal of Hindu nationalism. “The motives for the murder of Gauri Lankesh are not yet known, but the possibility of political motivation has been studied thoroughly and rapidly,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asian director of Human Rights Watch. bring the killers of Lankesh to justice and to protect the freedom of the media and the right to freedom of expression, “he added.

Lankesh was the editor and publisher of Gauri Lankesh Patrike, a Kannada weekly. Witnesses testified that they were shot dead outside their home. Police said motorcycle gunmen fired seven bullets at Lankesh while returning home after returning from work. Indian men and writers have already launched powerful campaigns to protest against freedom of expression, including returning their national prizes, leading to a national conversation about intolerance, “Ganguly said.” People have the right to pursue their own brand of faith and patriotism but the government must ensure that they are not forced on others by threats and violence. “The Karnataka state government announced that a special investigative team led by a police inspector general would investigate the killing and added that the police had secured footage of closed-circuit television housed in Lankesh’s home, and the government must ensure that the investigation is carried out in an impartial and time-bound manner, Human Rights Watch said.

In a May 2016 report, Human Rights Watch documented how large or loosely worded criminal laws, including criminal defamation, are used to quell political dissent and harass journalists. The group expressed concern that the Indian authorities should not properly prosecute those responsible for the killings of other writers and activists Govind Pansare, Narendra Dabholkar and M M Kalburgi.

India Must Make Sure There is no Repeat of Doklam Standoff, Says Ex-foreign Secretary

New Delhi: The resolution of the Doklam gap has been satisfactory for India, but a similar situation may not have a similar end, says former Foreign Minister Shyam Saran. In a powerful conversation with Anubha Bhonsle, CNN-News18’s Saran, whose book “How India Lives the World” was published on Thursday by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said India should be both cautious and firm in its ties with China. “The lesson we should not take is that we are able to handle it,” he said, adding that the government must be relieved, stagnation has not yet increased. Here are excerpts from the conversation with Shyam Saran, who was also Prime Minister Manmohan Singh special envoy on nuclear issues and climate change. Saran: My own view is that this was intended to convince Bhutan that it should go ahead with the border agreement between the two countries that worked for a while. Bhutan did not accept the terms proposed by China. China, as you know, was interested in establishing diplomatic relations and in trade with Bhutan.

My sense is that the question of Doklam has been an impetus for China not to advance. Maybe there was a side advantage in terms of China’s relations with India as well, but I do not think that was the main objective. And I think the very strong and vitriolic reaction was the element of surprise, because they did not expect this kind of confrontation with the Indian forces in the territory of Bhutan. From the point of view of India, it was a satisfactory spread of the situation, since we wanted a restoration of the status quo. In addition, the calendar of summits of the BRICS assured that the interest of China was that there was no disagreement. The important result of the Xiamen meeting is that we can be encouraged and hopeful. Anubha: Since the separation, it was supposed to be due to resolute resolution and diplomacy. And there is an underlying assumption that we can do it again if there is a Saran conflict: I do not think we should do that. We must be relieved because it could have increased. We must try to make sure we do not have to deal with a similar situation. We must not assume that we can solve it.

We must consider the fact that the context in which we deal with relations with China has changed. When I used to negotiate on climate change, our ally was China. Ten years later, when the Paris agreement is reached, the United States and China have their model. We must handle this relationship with a certain caution and firmness. This is something that needs constant attention. The lesson we should not draw is that we are capable of handling it. We must manage our border infrastructure well or we would not be able to treat it as well as we should. Anubha: What worries you about irritants and problems and what should we pay attention to? Saran: Take the example of the NSG problem. Above all, we wanted to thank you for the resignation. It would be important to have a membership. If the problems do not come from the Chinese opposition, this should not become a critical problem in our relationship with them. The list of terrorist groups in the UN is more of a problem for China because they are seen as opposing the fight against terrorism around the world.

I am very encouraged by the meeting and the statement. It is a complex relationship. There have always been elements of cooperation and confrontation. The challenge now is how we raise the importance of the areas where we have a common interest and how to minimize the possibility that some controversial issues will become bigger than life. Anubha: Is there a substantial difference in the way this government looks at Beijing from the previous regime? Saran: Every government has its own style. Modi believes that the personal leader of leadership relationships plays a very important role. In addition, there is more vigorous research and more attention to economic problems. Much of India’s foreign policy is continuity. The parameters have not changed much, but international problems continue to evolve and we must adapt to change. The basic foreign policy has been consistent.

Saran: Pakistan is a big challenge. We must leave the pattern of dialogue, disturbance, dialogue, disturbance. Whatever the problems, commitment to Pakistan is important precisely because it has major problems. Not only must we have pressure points to change this strategic calculation in Islamabad, but at the same time we must make sure that the assets we are dealing with in Pakistan, such as trading or treating people to relationships with people, is not affected . If the Pakistani actors want to come, welcome them, if the authors want to come, then why not. It must be a two-way approach. They need resources in terms of care to support the kind of commitment we need. But Pakistan should not take the attention we should give to all neighbors.

Saran: I think we have done well to say that we remain committed to the Paris agreement. I think we forget that India has a good story to tell in terms of global energy. The PM has made a personal commitment to the international network of solar or technological renewal. These are important initiatives. The energy consumption of India is decreasing. It is important to note that. Even historically, we have always seen the feeding of nature and not a dark force to conquer. Saran: Nuclear doctrine has served us well and has strengthened our nuclear capabilities. If doctrine changes, the infrastructure of the strategic nuclear program will also have to change. It is necessary and has served us well to repair things.

New Delhi: A Delhi Rajdhani left the tracks near the Minto Bridge in the national capital on Thursday, a few hours after seven wagons of Shaktipunj Express derailed in Uttar Pradesh. No casualties were reported in both accidents.

“As the speed of the train (Ranchi-Delhi Rajdhani Express) has been very low, no passenger has been injured,” said Northern Railways spokesman Neeraj Sharma.

1993 Mumbai Blasts Case: Why Abu Salem Got Life Sentence, While Yakub Memon Was Hanged

New Delhi: OP Chatwal, the Director General retired polls (DGI), the ICC, recalls how “Arsalan Mohsin Ali” (Abu Salem), a national “Pakistan” was extradited with “Sana Malik Kamal” (Monica Bedi) to India from Lisbon, Portugal in November 2005. Chatwal was the man who led the eight-member CBI team in Lisbon to bring Salem and Monica to Mumbai. Speaking to News18, he remembers that Salem had used the false identity of a Pakistani citizen to escape the hanging in India and how a change was made to the Indian Extradition Act 1962 to facilitate extradition.

“We had to assure Portugal that he would not be sentenced to death, and without that security he could not have been extradited.” Once life imprisonment occurs in Portugal, he can not be arrested over the age of 25. He was convicted of article 123 of the CPI combined with 302 and TADA Article 32. The maximum penalty in these sections is death but Salem can not receive death due to the amendment of the law in 1993, “Chatwal said.

“It was brought from a country that prohibited capital punishment. The 1993 amendment to the Indian Extradition Act of 1962 and article 34 (c) was necessary because the Indian Government faced the problems of extradition of Salem from a country that had banned the death penalty, so this change served as a guarantee for these countries, “Chatwal News18 said.

Yakub Memon, brother of Tiger Memon’s main escort, was hanged in 2015, and the others served or are in service. Among the important cases that occupied Chatwal was the Indian piracy IC-421, which shook in August 1984 at the height of Punjab militancy. Chatwal and his team covered the six terrorists and assured them they were incarcerated. The Bombay Bomb investigation of 1993 has been prolonged, Chatwal said, and the process began after it issued a notice of “Red Corner” against Salem.

“We have been looking for it all over the world and have been informed that it was in Portugal in 2002 and that we have contacted the Portuguese forces,” said former CBI survey expert. The main obstacle for the police was the double criminality aspect, since Salem had falsified its identity in Portugal. After overcoming this obstacle, the government found in the fact that there is no sentence of death in Portugal and that life imprisonment is only 25 years.

“We need strong identity documents to prove that he was in fact Salem because he had changed his identity and nationality.” On the basis of entries given by us, Salem was arrested by the Portuguese police. discovering his identity, had a fake Pakistani passport in the name of Arsalan Mohsin Ali. But because of his fingerprints, his identity has been established, with that of Monica Bedi. ” He also used a fake passport on behalf of Sana Malik Kamal and was tried by a different court of the IWC in Hyderabad, “said Chatwal.

After a long legal battle, the extradition of Salem occurred in 2005. “Our request for expulsion was not accepted by the Government of Portugal, and after the law reform we obtained and was taken to India in November 2005,” said Chatwal.
