Even before the party could get over its shocking defeat in Assam Assembly polls leading to the end of its 15-year-old rule in the state, the Congress is facing trouble in another front,this time in Tripura After a series of electoral defeats trouble is brewing for the Congress in Tripura Representational image AFP Six Congress legislators on Tuesday joined the Trinamool Congress leaving the national party Assembly Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath told reporters that he had received a letter from Congress legislator Sudip Roy Barman who he said was accompanied by three legislators "The letter was signed by six Congress MLAs informing me that they have joined the Trinamool Congress" Debnath said "I would call all the six Congress MLAs for individual hearing and verification of their signature After consulting the rules and experts I will take a final decision in this regard in a day or two" Trinamool Congress vice-president Mukul Roy came to Agartala on Tuesday his second visit to the Left-ruled state in five days It is baffling that the Congress top brass is failing to grasp the seriousness of the situation despite getting red-flagged in different parts of the country from its own party leaders and cadres The sense of dejection that has crept into the minds of the localcadres and regional leaders—who are actually the pillars of the party— can shake the very foundation of the party despite its illustrious past Things look shaky even in Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma’s wife Dikkanchi D Shira lost the Tura Lok Sabha seat bypoll to National People’s Party Conrad K Sangma The bypoll in Tura happened as the seat fell vacant after the death of incumbent MP and former Lok Sabha speaker Purno A Sangma on 4 March Conrad who won in 23 of the 24 Assembly segments defeated Shira by a margin of 192212 votes The Congress candidate had got 137285 votes Fearing a Arunachal Pradesh-like mutiny where Congress dissident Kalikho Pul became the chief minister of the state in February by toppling the Nabam Tuki government with outside support from the BJP Mukul Sangma apparently wrote to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi warning against "black sheep" in the state unit who are apparently in touch with BJP leaders an Indian Express report said The Meghalaya chief minister’s apprehension is not unfounded as a whopping number of 18 rebel Congress MLAs helped Pul to wrest power from Tuki in Arunachal Pradesh The intent of the BJP to free the North East from Congress rule is unmissable On 24 May soon after Sarbananda Sonowal was sworn in as the first BJP chief minister of Assam and also in the region the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) was formed to bring in all non-Congress parties of the region under one umbrella The new platform of the BJP was formed for development of all northeastern states hours after Sarbananda Sonowal was sworn-in as the 14th chief minister of Assam The alliance was formed at a meeting chaired by BJP President Amit Shah and attended by Sonowal and his Arunachal Pradesh Nagaland and Sikkim counterparts Kalikho Pul TR Zeliang and PK Chamling respectively In an ominous message to the Congress NEDA convenor Himanta Biswa Sarma had made it clear in an interview to Times Now that the BJP is trying to make inroads into Manipur where the assembly election is due in 2017 What should worry the Congress more is that some of its leaders in Manipur are already in talks with the BJP The North East accounts for 25 Lok Sabha seats in total including Sikkim On Monday veteran Congress leader Gurudas Kamat resigned from primary membership of the party and announced his retirement from politics The resignation is a major setback to the grand old party in the key state of Maharashtra "For several months now I have felt I need to take a backseat to enable others to get the opportunity I met Hon Congress president about 10days ago and expressed a desire to resign" Kamat said Kamat was known as a loyalist of the Gandhi family and his resignation was met with surprise in political circles as per a report in Loksatta Last week senior Congress leader and the first chief minister of Chhattisgarh Ajit Jogi had decided to form a new party in clear violation of Congress code of conduct "In the last 13 years I haven’t been given any role by the party — not even at the block level — and I’ve been rendered an ordinary party worker The party workers who are with me have not been given any responsibility even at the booth level so forget about a bigger role I know it has been maneuvered by some people (read Congress leaders) in Delhi They can’t tolerate regional satraps coming up like it happened in the case of Mamata Banerjee Jagan Reddy and Himanta Biswa Sarma They want weak people and sycophants in the party" Jogi told Firstpost Although Uttarakhand Chief Minister Rawat could save his government largely on technical grounds he seems to be facing another round of dissension According to Hindustan Times Rawat is facing dissent "with several leaders from the Garhwal region accusing him of ignoring them for positions in the government as well as the party" What is unique in the pattern of dissent is that the instead of accommodating or giving them patient hearings the Gandhis have chose to ignore the dissidents Be it Himanta Biswa Sarma in Assam or Ajit Jogi in Chhattisgarh these leaders contributed significantly to the rise of the Congress in their respective states before The dissent mostly brews as one set of leaders get backing from the high command while those who raise their voice are simply sidelined Be it Tarun Gogoi in Assam in the past or Mukul Sangma in Meghalaya the party top brass should introspect how these regional leaders function as

headquarters for Berilnaleeveryone was breaking into a sweat Now if that isn’t star-powerwhat is The said event that had everyone who was denied admission a little hot under the collar was the press conference for Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut In The Land Of Blood And Honey which was screened at Berlinale 2012 (out of competition section) Even before the star arrivedshe graced the cover of an event publication on the best-dressed red carpet appearances Soon afterthe newspapers were carrying reports of her visit to Berlin’s Legoland with the kids A love story between Danjiel (a Serb) and Ajla (a Bosnian)shot in Bosnia with actors from the coun–ry-Goran Kostic and Zana Majanovic playing the –ead-and in Bosnianwas one of the most awaited films with the media keeping a hawk’s eye for shortcomings The media screening was packed to capacitythough a few did leave even before the film was over The film’s team turned out in full strength for the photo call and the press conference with Jolie in a conservative black dress leading from the front To be fairJolie pulls off a remarkable feat considering it’s not her personal story and the film is in Bosnian What works though for the film is in telling a human story with all the quirksdrama and yet the real time pace that life moves at There is very clearly an effort to not turn it into a Hollywood war film for which Jolie deserves a pat on the back The film was even nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at Golden Globe Charges of a simplistic portrayal of a very complex situation — a brave scribe did pipe up with the question — were summarily brushed aside by the actor and her team Jolie at the press conference did say that it was just one of the many stories of the Bosnia conflict and hoped that several other stories would be told of the situation “Everybody interprets art differently That’s how you see it…Clearly it was not the way it was intended” The actor also said”Out of all films that I have madeit’s the one that means the most to me and is the most true to what I believe in ” She was extremely receptive to acknowledgment from an Italian journalist about the female gaze and

DirectorBerlinale) in an exclusive interview with Screen speaks of political statementsShah Rukh Khan and the festival’s association with Meryl Streep Dieter Kosslick seems to wear his responsibility of being director to one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious film festivals rather lightly But appearancesparticularly with regard to the astute Dietercan be deceptive The director who completes 10 years at the helm of the festival sits back in the Golden Bear Lounge to answer a few pertinent questions What is different about Berlinale 2012 The difference is that outside of the festival itselfwe have the biggest market in terms of business figures that have really grown important Two-thirds of what we have is market premiere and new cinema It’s also the tenth anniversary of our talent campus -believe it or notthousands of filmmakers have been in Berlin for this We also have a new programme called Residency that starts this summer We invite a couple of filmmakers to stay here a few months and work on films that we release (later) Why the choice of ‘Upheaval’ as the festival theme When you start a selectionyou don’t know where it will end As we went alongwe saw a lot of films about these changes in the worldespecially the so-called Arab Spring We realised there are a lot of films even from other countries dealing with the same subject Even the three German films that we selected had a connection All films are about changesin familyprivate situations or social situations wherein people want to go out and change On one sidethere are all these public changes and then also the private ones We call it umbvich which means something has turned around Like the opening film Les Adieux à la Reine (Farewell My Queen)which was about a big bang (the French Revolution) 120 years ago We also had very young directors co–peting-for a lot of makers it is their second or th–rd film- ensuring that there are new peoplenot just the festival regulars What prompted the selection of Don2 which is not a festival film We have a long-standing relationship with Indian cinema in general since the last 50 years In the last 10 yearswe have done the first of its kind retrospective of “Bollywood films” so the relationship is pretty well-developed and with Shah Rukh Khan who has visited several times and shot a film in Berlinwe were not going to let that chance slip What better film than one with Shah Rukh Khan shot in Berlin to showcase at the Berlinale Would you agree that bigger films are replacing Indie films at festivals around the world My opinion is that yesthere are bigger films but there are also a lot of arthouse films with bigger movie stars or Hollywood stars This is an interesting trend worldwide Is there an effort to woo Hollywood like an honorary Golden Bear for Lifetime Achievement for Meryl Streepundoubtedly a very accomplished actress Meryl Streep and Berlinale have a long history and she already won an award a couple of years ago We always thoughtthis is an actor who should win an award for Lifetime Achievement and then we saw The Iron Lady It was a performance we have never seen in a biopic And we are honoured to honour her How important is commercial success ( for a festival) It is very important to have good commerce and that is why I am so glad that the market has become so big this year At Berlinalethe market is linked to the festivalunlike saySundance HoweverI know that big deals are being done and the rights to the opening film has been sold for all over the world Which festival would you count as your biggest competitor The weather is our biggest competitor (laughs) Cannes is number one and we are not really competing Is Berlinale different in that it isat corepolitical in nature From the very beginningsince 1951Berlinale has been political because it was founded due to the political situation of the time during The Cold War when The Iron Curtain was in place It was founded to get out of the isolation of The Cold War… To create friendship and understanding between different nations We are still in solidarity with different voices from countries like IranChinaChad VietnamCambodia and

This industry has changed People should start appreciating films where women are at the centre Every alternate Friday there is at least one film that’s female oriented Things have changed since three years These films are not only making money but also being appreciated as any other film with a male protagonist How do you see a film’s box office figures I would really want all my films to make money But this weekend calculation is the most dangerous thing Because based on the amount collected in the first weekend they start declaring the film a hit or a flop It can’t be The three-day business can’t determine the quality of the film That only harms the creative aspect of the film That also discourages a serious filmmaker from doing good work This is not a good trend” We keep hearing that movies aren’t doing enough business What do you think It’s the ticket prices that are very discouraging to the viewers A Rs 500 ticket is too costly for a common man and only a common man can revive the movie culture in the country These were the people who made stars and movies stay at the theatres When a common man is discouraged to buy a movie ticket it becomes a concern for the entire film industry I think entertainment tax is too steep A combination of these two things has made things difficult Recently Regal theatre closed down in Delhi What are your memories about single screens This is a matter of concern for all of us Single screens are shutting down all across the country A common man doesn’t go to a multiplex For him a single screen remains the ultimate source of watching movies I recently went to Bihar and found that most of the single screens have shut down In my city there used to be around 7-8 single screens and now only two are left This is not healthy for the film industry” Will we get to see you in Bhojpuri films You will definitely see me in Bhojpuri films but only if I get the right script That’s my mother tongue and I am more comfortable in it

else" in his convention speech Donald Trump presented the nation with a series of previously-debunked claims and some new ones on Thursday night — about the US tax burden the perils facing police Hillary Clinton’s record and more A look at some of the Republican presidential candidate’s claims and how they compare with the facts: Trump: "Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement Homicides last year increased by 17 percent in America’s 50 largest cities That’s the largest increase in 25 years" The facts: A rollback President Barack Obama has actually achieved some big increases in spending for state and local law enforcement including billions in grants provided through the 2009 stimulus While FBI crime statistics for 2015 are not yet available Trump’s claim about rising homicides appears to come from a Washington Post analysis published in January While Trump accurately quotes part of the analysis he omits that the statistical jump was so large because homicides are still very low by historical standards In the 50 cities cited by the Post for example half as many people were killed last year as in 1991 Trump: "The number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year already exceeds the entire total from 2015 They are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources" The facts: The pace of releasing immigrants is driven not by the Obama administration but by a court ruling A federal judge ruled last year that the government couldn’t hold parents and children in jail for more than 20 days An appeals court partially rolled that back earlier this month saying that parents could be detained but children must be released By the standard used by the government to estimate illegal border crossings —the number of arrests — Trump is right that the number in this budget year has already exceeded last year’s total But it’s down from 2014 Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump speaks during the final day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland AP Trump: "When a secretary of state illegally stores her emails on a private server deletes 33000 of them so the authorities can’t see her crime puts our country at risk lies about it in every different form and faces no consequence —I know that corruption has reached a level like never before" The facts: Clinton’s use of a private server to store her emails was not illegal under federal law Her actions were not established as a crime The FBI investigated the matter and its role was to advise the Justice Department whether to bring charges against her based on what it found FBI Director James Comey declined to refer the case for criminal prosecution to the Justice Department instead accusing Clinton of extreme carelessness As for Trump’s claim that Clinton faces no consequence that may be true in a legal sense But the matter has been a distraction to her campaign and fed into public perceptions that she can’t be trusted The election will test whether she has paid a price politically Trump: "The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50 percent compared to this point last year" The facts: Not according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund which tracks police fatalities daily The group found that the number of police officers who died as of 20 July is up just slightly this year at 67 compared with 62 through the same period last year That includes deaths in the line of duty from all causes including traffic fatalities It is true that there has been a spike in police deaths from intentional shootings 32 this year compared with 18 last year largely attributable to the recent mass shootings in Dallas and Baton Rouge But that was not his claim And overall police are statistically safer on America’s streets now than at any time in recent decades For example the 109 law enforcement fatalities in 2013 were the lowest since 1956 Trump: "Two million more Latinos are in poverty today than when President Obama took his oath of office less than eight years ago Another 14 million people have left the workforce entirely President Obama has almost doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion and growing" The facts: Trump is playing with numbers to make the economy look worse than it actually is The sluggish recovery over the past seven years has been frustrating But with unemployment at 49 percent the situation isn’t as bleak as he suggests Trump’s figure of 14 million who’ve stopped working since Obama took office comes from the Labour Department’s measure of people not in the workforce It’s misleading for three reasons: The US population has increased in that time; the country has aged and people have retired; and younger people are staying in school longer for college and advanced degrees so they’re not in the labor force either A better figure is labor force participation — the share of people with jobs or who are searching for work That figure has declined from 657 percent when Obama took office to 627 percent now Part of that decrease reflects retirements but the decline is also a long-term trend On national debt economists say a more meaningful measure than dollars is the share of the overall economy taken up by the debt By that measure the debt rose 36 percent under Obama (rather than doubling) That’s roughly the same as what occurred under Republican President George W Bush The Hispanic population has risen since Obama while the poverty rate has fallen The Pew Research Center found that 235 percent of the country’s 553 million Latinos live in poverty compared with 247 percent in 2010

paid a price politically" Trump: "When that same secretary of state rakes in millions and millions of dollars trading access and favors to special interests and foreign powers I know the time for action has come" The facts: That’s a somewhat overheated take on a legitimately troublesome issue for Clinton Although financial disclosures show she earned only her government salary as secretary of state she made more than $21 million afterward over three years for speeches and appearances for private companies None of those speeches was paid for by foreign governments but some groups she addressed could be counted as special interests As well the Clintons’ family charity the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars in donations while she was secretary of state some from foreigners And Bill Clinton earned millions making appearances and speeches for foreign corporations and organizations while his wife was at the State Department Trump: "After four years of Hillary Clinton what do we have ISIS has spread across the region and the entire world Libya is in ruins and our ambassador and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers Egypt was turned over to the radical Muslim Brotherhood forcing the military to retake control Iraq is in chaos Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons Syria is engulfed in a civil war and a refugee crisis now threatens the West . This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death destruction terrorism and weakness" The facts:It’s an exaggeration to suggest Clinton or any secretary of state is to blame for the widespread instability and violence across the Middle East Clinton worked to impose sanctions that helped coax Tehran to a nuclear deal with the US and other world powers last year a deal in which Iran rolled back its nuclear program to get relief from sanctions that were choking its economy She did not start the war in Libya but supported a NATO intervention well after violence broke out between rebels and the forces of dictator Moammar Gadhafi The country slid into chaos after Gadhafi was ousted and killed in 2011 leaving it split between competing governments Clinton had no role in military decisions made during the 2012 attack on the US diplomatic post in Benghazi Libya that killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans Republicans’ claim that high-level officials in Washington issued a "stand-down" order delaying a military rescue in Benghazi has been widely debunked On Iraq Clinton as a senator voted in 2002 to grant President George W Bush authority to invade Iraq but has since

me around 25 minutes to reach Rajiv Chowk from Mayur Vihar Phase I station Today it took more than an hour to travel the same distance that too in an overcrowded coach as it happened to be a rush hour” a commuter said On January 3 thousands of commuters were left stranded as services crawled for several hours on the corridor due to issues in overhead wiring between Pragati Maidan and Mandi House stations The two branches of Blue Line (Line 3/4) that have gained considerable infamy due to frequent snags connect Dwarka Sector 21 to Noida City Centre and Vaishali With around five

province of Kermanshah which appears to be the hardest hit in the magnitude 73 earthquake that struck Sunday night Both rescuers and local residents alike stood atop the remains of apartment complexes looking through the rubble They used heavy blankets to carry away corpses The hospital in Sarpol-e-Zahab was heavily damaged and the army set up field hospitals although many of the injured were moved to other cities including Tehran The quake also damaged an army garrison and buildings in the border city and killed an unspecified number of soldiers according to reports President Hassan Rouhani arrived in Kermanshah province on Tuesday to see the damage for himself and offer his support to those affected "This was a pain for all Iranians" Rouhani said according to a statement on the presidency’s website "Representing the nation of Iran I offer my condolences to the people of Kermanshah and tell them that all of us are behind Kermanshah" Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif offered his thanks to foreign countries offering to help but wrote on Twitter: "For now we are able to manage with our own resources" Heartbreaking images from the earthquake damage and loss of life in Kermanshah (and in Iraq) We are grateful for global expressions of sympathy and offers of assistance For now we can manage with our own resources Many thanks for all offers and we will keep

relief material and "security" Many of the heavily damaged complexes in Sarpol-e-Zahab were part of construction projects under former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad The newly homeless slept outside in cold huddled around makeshift fires for warmth The quake killed 430 people in Iran and injured 7460 state media reported Tuesday Most of the injuries were minor with fewer than 1000 still hospitalised Iran’s crisis management headquarters spokesman Behnam Saeedi told state TV The official death toll came from provincial forensic authorities based on death certificates issued Some reports said unauthorized burials without certification could mean the death toll was actually higher The quake was centered about 19 miles (31 kilometers) outside the eastern Iraqi city of Halabja according to the US Geological Survey and struck 144 miles (232 kilometers) below the surface a somewhat shallow depth that can cause broader damage The quake caused Dubai’s skyscrapers to sway and could be felt 1060 kilometers (660 miles) away on the Mediterranean coast Seven deaths occurred in Iraq and 535 people were injured all in the country’s northern semiautonomous Kurdish region according to its interior ministry The disparity in casualty tolls immediately drew questions from Iranians especially because so much of the town was new Sarpol-e-Zahab fell to the troops of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during his 1980 invasion of Iran which sparked the eight-year war between the two countries that killed 1 million people Though clawed back by Iran seven months later the area remained a war zone that suffered through Saddam’s missile attacks and chemical weapons After the war Iran began rebuilding the town It also was part of Ahmadinejad’s low-income housing project which aided the Holocaust-questioning hard-liner’s populist credentials but also saw cheap construction Under the plan dubbed as Mehr or "kindness" in Farsi some 2 million units were built in Iran including hundreds in Sarpol-e Zahab Many criticised the plan warning that the low-quality construction could lead to a disaster "Before its 10-year anniversary Mehr buildings have turned into coffins for its inhabitants" the reformist Fararu news website wrote Monday Iran sits on many major fault lines and is prone to near-daily quakes In 2003 a magnitude 66 earthquake flattened the historic city of Bam

injury (Source: AP) Related News Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho expects Zlatan Ibrahimovic to challenge Romelu Lukaku for a starting berth when the Swedish striker returns to action Ibrahimovic 35 signed a one-year contract with United this week having been sidelined since sustaining a serious knee ligament injury four months ago Lukaku has made an impressive start to his Old Trafford career but Mourinho says that when Ibrahimovic returns to fitness he will be given a chance to take the Belgian’s place “Zlatan knows me” Mourinho told reporters yesterday And he knows that I play the players that I think are the best for the team I always did it “I always did that in my life so if he comes here and he proves that he is the best he plays If the other ones don’t give him a chance to prove that that’s life “But I try always to be honest with my players and with my team I try Maybe sometimes I do not the correct things But I always try to do” Lukaku 24 has made a strong impression following his 75 million ($966 million 813 million euros) move from Everton scoring four goals in his first three United appearances While Mourinho envisages Ibrahimovic playing a key role over the second part of the season he is similarly insistent that the experienced forward will have to force his way into what could be a settled team “Zlatan is going to arrive into a made team” said Mourinho ahead of Saturday’s home game with Leicester City “Zlatan is going to arrive to a team that I don’t say is the end product but he is going to arrive mid-season with the team playing in a certain way and with players having what I call the functional links in the dynamic of the team “So nobody should be worried with Zlatan and I think for you it’s just a funny exercise of football brain to try to anticipate what we are going to be when he comes back but we are going to be a better squad” He added: “We need a striker and we have one striker just around the corner that belongs to our family that likes to be with us and play for us “Probably in January I would be knocking on (executive vice chairman) Ed Woodward’s door asking for a striker for the second part of the season and
