Pujari told the media that she was forced to dance in the ICU by Mamata Behera, a social worker, despite being denied repeatedly. Pujari said Mamata didn’t listen and made her dance before she was discharged. She told reporters in her home district Koraput that she was already sick and after dancing, she got tired too.

Harish Muduli, the tribal community association chief said they will protest on the streets if the state government did not take action against the social worker. Pujari was admitted to SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack.

The hospital authorities said the Padma Shri winner was admitted to a special cabin and not the ICU. Hospital registrar Dr Abinash Rout said the woman who allegedly made Pujari dance used to visit her at the special cabin.

Pujari’s attendant Rajeeb Hill said she doesn’t know Behera who had clicked several selfies with her. To which Behera clarified that she had no bad intention but wanted to keep Pujari away from laziness.

Pujari received Padma Shri in 2019 for promoting organic farming and preserving over 100 varieties of indigenous seeds.

The Paraja community comes under Scheduled Tribes, comprising 4 percent of Odisha’s tribal population.

Jammu and Kashmir: Home Ministry amends Reorganisation Act to boost LG power

In the Transaction of Business Rules, sub-rule 2A has been inserted after sub-rule (2) in rule 5.

Published

on

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has amended the rules of Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act to give more power to the Lieutenant Governor. The MHA notified the amended Rules under Section 55 of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019 inserting new Sections giving more power to the LG.

According to the information, only the transaction of Business Rules has been amended. Nothing new has been provided in these rules. It is already mentioned in the State Reorganization Act (SRA) of 2019. The current amendment to rules is just a clarificatory in nature flowing from the existing provisions of SRA 2019.

In the Transaction of Business Rules, sub-rule 2A has been inserted after sub-rule (2) in rule 5.

With the amendment, the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir will exercise more power on matters of transfers and postings of all-India service officers like the IAS and IPS, police, law and order as well as the appointment of judicial officers, as per the official notification. 

President Droupadi Murmu approved the amendments in the rule exercising the powers conferred by Section 55 of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, (34 of 2019) read with the Proclamation dated October 31, 2019, issued under Section 73 of the Act, as per the notification issued by the MHA. 

The notification further said that the President has made the rules further to amend the Transaction of Business of the Government of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir Rules, 2019. These rules may be called the Transaction of Business of the Government of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir (Second Amendment) Rules, 2024, the notification suggests further. 

The amendments came into force on July 12, the date of the publication in the Official Gazette; a move in anticipation of the speculated assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.  

Reacting to the Amendment, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said another indicator that elections are around the corner in J&K. This is why a firm commitment to laying out the timeline for restoration of full, undiluted statehood for J&K is a prerequisite for these elections, he added.

The people of J&K deserve better than a powerless, rubber-stamp CM who will have to beg the LG to get his/her peon appointed, he asserted.

The by-elections in 13 Assembly constituencies across seven States concluded on July 10. The Assembly seats included Badrinath and Manglaur seats in Uttarakhand; Rupauli in Bihar; Raiganj seat, Ranaghat Dakshin seat, Bagda and Maniktala seat in West Bengal; Vikravandi in Tamil Nadu; Amarwara in Madhya Pradesh; Jalandhar West in Punjab and Dehra, Hamirpur and Nalagarh in Himachal Pradesh.

In Uttarakhand, the Congress is leading in both the Badrinath and Manglaur seats. The TMC is leading on all four West Bengal seats, with Raiganj candidate Krishna Kalyani taking a significant lead of more than 41,000 votes after seven rounds of counting.

In Madhya Pradesh, Congress’s Dheeran Shah Invati has taken a lead of over 4,000 votes in the Amarwar seat. Meanwhile, in Bihar, JD(U)’s Kaladhar Prasad Mandal is leading in Rupauli, and in Tamil Nadu, DMK’s Anniyur Siva is leading by over 10,000 votes in the Vikravandi seat.

On AAP wins Jalandhar West seat of Punjab, the party leader Sanjay Singh said that Aam Aadmi Party has got a ‘Vardan’ that whoever betrays AAP, the public will defeat its opponent badly in the elections and the political career will end. On AAP leader who left the party, Singh said that whoever left AAP and joined BJP, their political career is over now. Rinku Singh left AAP and lost the election, Sheetal left AAP and he also lost the election, Singh said.

Congratulating the Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and party workers, the Rajya Sabha MP said AAP is a family, everyone should stay together in times of crisis, he claimed to win even the biggest battles.

On Congress leading on two out of three assembly seats in Himachal Pradesh, CM Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said the people of Himachal gave the party 40 seats in 2022. The kind of poaching that happened in State politics in the past, people have given a befitting reply for that, he added.

Further, he said that this also gave a message that the people of the state are aware and awake and such poaching will not work. Three independent MLAs had no reason to resign. On his wife being fielded from Dehra, he said this was done to make Congress enter Kangra and increase the MLAs of the valley from 9 to 10. All three seats are a stronghold of BJP and the grand party has won two of them, this is a big deal, he asserted.
