US not considering change in H1-B visa rules

The government has denied visas to teams of a non-governmental advisory body to the US Congress after its denouncement of the state of religious freedom in India. In April, the USCIRF had recommended to the US administration that India be designated a “country of particular concern”.

In his letter to BJP MP Nishikant Dubey, Jaishankar wrote, “We have denied visa to USCIRF teams that have sought to visit India in connection with issues related to religious freedom, as we do not see the locus standi of a foreign entity like USCIRF to pronounce on the state of Indian citizens’ constitutionally protected rights.”

It was the first time since 2004 — when its recommendation came against the backdrop of the Gujarat riots in 2002 — that the USCIRF had sought this. The USCIRF’s annual report had also named Home Minister Amit Shah twice, once recalling that he had referred to migrants as “termites” to be eradicated.

Jaishankar noted that the MEA had earlier rejected the USCIRF’s statements as “inaccurate and unwarranted”. He said India “will not accept any external interference or pronouncement on matters related to our sovereignty and the fundamental rights of our citizens that are guaranteed by the Constitution”.

The USCIRF’s views are not meant to represent the opinion of the US administration or the US Congress.

Arvind Kejriwal given insulin in Tihar jail after sugar levels touch 320

Finally, the BJP and its jail administration came to their senses and gave insulin to CM Arvind Kejriwal in jail, AAP tweeted.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal received insulin on Tuesday, April 23, after days of battling, according to the Aam Aadmi Party.

Arvind Kejriwal, however, received a low dose of insulin, according to Tihar jail officials, following a rise in his blood sugar. Around 7:00 p.m., his blood sugar level was found to be 217, and the medical staff at Tihar who were attending to him then made the decision to give him insulin, according to an official.

Taking to social media X, formerly Twitter, AAP tweeted, CM Arvind Kejriwal received insulin in jail after the BJP and its jail administration finally had a change of heart. CM Kejriwal’s blood sugar level was 320. Only the graces of Lord Hanuman and the perseverance of the Delhi community have made this possible. The AAP announced in a tweet on X that they have succeeded in delivering insulin to our Chief Minister.

According to the Tihar official, Kejriwal was given two units of low dose insulin on Monday evening on the advice of AIIMS doctors.

Low-dose insulin was given to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at Tihar Jail yesterday. Yesterday, his sugar levels were 217. When the level surpasses 200, the AIIMS experts had stated that he could receive low-dose insulin, according to a Tihar Jail official.

He said Tihar’s doctors had been informed by AIIMS specialists in a video conference with the chief minister on April 20 that insulin could be given to him if his blood sugar level exceeded a specific threshold.

The incident took place just one day after a Delhi court ordered the AIIMS to set up a medical board to evaluate Arvind Kejriwal in order to determine whether or not he requires insulin to regulate his blood sugar levels. The court further said that the food prepared at home by the AAP national convenor differs from the diet plan prescribed by his doctor.

The order was issued by special judge Kaveri Baweja for CBI and ED cases, who turned down Arvind Kejriwal’s request for a video consultation with his doctor in front of his wife Sunita Kejriwal.

Delhi health minister Saurabh Bharadwaj  said on Monday that Arvind Kejriwal has been detained in Tihar for almost 22 days. He has been complaining for several days that his blood sugar is rising and that the jail does not have a diabetes specialist. He has been requesting insulin. It is evident from the court’s ruling today that Tihar jail does not have a diabetes specialist.

Since insulin is the only option available to control his blood sugar levels, Arvind Kejriwal has been requesting it nonstop for the past ten days, according to AAP leader Atishi.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Arvind Kejriwal on March 21 in relation to a money-laundering investigation involving the Delhi government’s now-scrapped excise policy. The CM has been logged in Tihar jail since April 1.

Lok Sabha elections: BJP candidate Mukesh Dalal wins from Surat after opponents remain out of fray

BJP’s Surat Lok Sabha candidate Mukesh Dalal has won the seat unopposed

Published

on

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Mukesh Dalal is elected unopposed from Gujarat’s Surat Lok Sabha constituency after all other contenders withdrew their candidature.

Gujrat BJP chief CR Paatil took to hi social media account X, formerly Twitter, and congratulated Dalal for being elected unopposed.

This latest developmnet comes after the cancellation of two Congress candidates’ nominations on Sunday and the withdrawal of eight more on Monday.

The Congress candidate for the Surat Lok Sabha constituency, Nilesh Kumbhani, had his nomination form canceled since he was unable to produce even one of his three proposers before the election commissioner.

The differences in three proposers’ signatures on Kumbhani’s nomination form had drawn scrutiny from the BJP.

The Congress’s replacement candidate from Surat, Suresh Padsala, had his nomination form nullified as well, which eliminated the party from the race in the city.

Returning Officer Sourabh Pardhi issued an order stating that the four nomination forms that Kumbhani and Padsala had presented were refused because there were initially found differences in the proposers’ signatures, making them seem fake.

Pardhi’s order also mentioned that the proposers acknowledged having signed the forms themselves in their affidavits. It should be noted that Kumbhani’s three proposers were related to him.

Nilesh Kumbhani was given a day by the Returning Officer to submit his response following the proposers’ claim. The congressional candidate arrived at the polling place with his representative; however, none of his three proposers showed up.

According to the order, the Congress candidate’s attorney had requested that the camera tape be checked, and even their presence was not discovered.

Meanwhile, the Congress said that everyone was afraid of the government’s threat and accused the ruling BJP of being involved in dirty play.

Congress leader and activist Babu Mangukiya said that Kumbhani’s three proposers had been abducted, and he suggested that the Returning Officer look into this matter rather than the validity of the signed form.

According to Mangukiya, it was improper to cancel the form without first telechecking the signatures and determining whether or not the proposers’ signatures were accurate.
