Only one person can ensure country’s security: Amit Shah

first_img“I am fortunate that BJP has made me the candidate from Gandhinagar seat that was represented by Lal Krishna Advani, Atalji and Purushottam Ganesh Mavalankar,” said Mr. Shah. “It is this region from where I was elected MLA for five times and I began my electoral journey,” he added.Mr. Shah made clear that the parliamentary elections would be fought on the issue of national security and the fight against terrorism.“This election will be fought on only one issue, and that is, who will lead this country,” Mr. Shah asserted. “When I ask who will lead the country, from Himachal to Kanyakumari and from Kamrup to Gandhinagar, only one word is heard, that is: Modi, Modi, Modi,” he said, addressing party workers in Naranpura, his erstwhile Assembly constituency.He stressed that only Mr. Modi, the BJP and the NDA government could secure the country’s interests.“The question before the country is who can assure security to the country? Only one person, only one party can assure this. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP and NDA government can assure security to the country,” he contended.Mr. Thackeray said that “both BJP and Shiv Sena were guided by the common ideology of Hindutva.” BJP President Amit Shah speaking to people during a road show in Ahmedabad on Saturday, March 30, 2019.  | Photo Credit: Vijay Soneji Flanked by senior party colleagues and NDA allies, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday filed his nomination for the Lok Sabha election from Gandhinagar, replacing the party’s veteran parliamentarian L.K.

Nick Foles a Super Bowl MVP and unlikely folk hero in Philly

Patrick Smith/Getty Images/AFPMINNEAPOLIS — Cast aside once in Philadelphia, Nick Foles delivered the city its first Super Bowl title, and he outdueled the great Tom Brady to do it.Foles, who took over when Carson Wentz injured his right knee in mid-December, matched the five-time champion and three-time MVP big play for big play Sunday in leading the Eagles past the New England Patriots 41-33.ADVERTISEMENT Foles was 28 of 43 and wasn’t sacked at all. Brady was 28 of 48, and while he didn’t throw any interceptions, his only sack was a doozy.Brady, who threw TD passes on all three of New England’s second-half drives, dropped back on second-and-2 at his 33 when Brandon Graham swept in and jarred the ball loose. Derek Barnett smothered it at the 31 with just over two minutes remaining.Jake Elliott’s 46-yard field goal, the longest in a Super Bowl by a rookie, made it an eight-point cushion and gave Brady just a minute to work his magic.He started at his 9 with 58 seconds remaining and drove the Patriots to midfield before Foles and the Eagles could exhale.A third-round pick by former Eagles coach Andy Reid in 2012, Foles had tremendous success as a starter under Chip Kelly his sophomore season. He threw 29 TDs and only two picks in 11 starts, including playoffs in 2013. Foles posted a passer rating of 119.2, third-highest in league history. He tied an NFL record with seven TD passes in a game at Oakland in November 2013 and won an offensive MVP award at a Pro Bowl.But Foles was traded to St. Louis for Sam Bradford in March 2015. He lost his starting job to Case Keenum and asked for his release after Jared Goff was drafted No. 1 overall. Foles considered hanging up his cleats before Reid persuaded him to go to Kansas City to be Alex Smith’s backup.After one season with the Chiefs, Foles returned to Philly for $12 million over two years to provide insurance behind Wentz.Now he’s a folk hero for a franchise that had gone 0-for-2 in Super Bowls and for a legion of fans who were rooting for anybody other than Brady and the Patriots, who were seeking their third title in four years. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. View comments But the ambling Brady, although wide open, couldn’t quite haul in receiver Danny Amendola’s high pass for what would have been a nifty over-the-shoulder reception which might have gone all 35 yards for the score.That brought to mind Gisele Bundchen’s famous dig after one of Brady’s two losses to Eli Manning and the Giants in the Super Bowl when his supermodel wife responded to hecklers by complaining about the Patriots’ many dropped passes that day.“You’ve to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she fumed. “My husband cannot … throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.”Nor could he haul in Amendola’s throw early in the second quarter with New England trailing 9-3.Foles’ only interception was a fluke, but it did help Brady and the Patriots staunch an early stumble to stay in it until the very end when Brady’s desperation pass into the end zone on the final play failed to find its big target, Rob Gronkowski.ADVERTISEMENT NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH AFP official booed out of forum Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises MOST READ Read Next Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC He threw the go-ahead touchdown to tight end Zach Ertz from 11 yards on third-and-7 with 2:21 remaining, capping a seven-minute, 14-play drive that covered 75 yards, kept Brady cooling his cleats on the sideline and allowed the Eagles’ exhausted defenders to catch their collective breath in a game that featured 1,151 total yards, the most in any NFL game in the Super Bowl era.Brady threw for more yards — a playoff career-high 505 to Foles’ 373 — but Foles matched Brady’s three touchdown tosses and even caught another.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutHe hauled in tight end Trey Burton’s toss from the 1 that gave Philadelphia a 22-12 halftime edge and made him the first player in Super Bowl history to be on both ends of a touchdown pass in the same game.Brady nearly beat him to it.

Narsingh became unconscious after hearing CAS verdict

first_imgBy Tapan Mohanta Rio de Janeiro, Aug 20 (PTI) Disgraced after being ousted from the Olympics Village for flunking a dope test, Indian wrestler Narsingh Yadav “became unconscious” when he was slapped with a four-year ban by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). Wrestling Federation of India president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh said Narsingh lost his consciousness after being debarred for the dope violation back home. Still backing the disgraced grappler, the WFI chief told PTI, “Narsingh behosh ho gaya tha kal, aaj thik hai (Narsingh became unconscious yesterday, he is fine today). We dont want to accuse anyone. Our only demand is a CBI inquiry. “Everything will become clear after a thorough investigation. All the skeletons will tumble out of the closet once the boy is nabbed. We will press hard for an investigation.” The dope-tainted grappler has vowed to take his battle to the Prime Ministers Office. “Meri toh naam badnam hui, isse pura desh pe kala dhabba lag gaya hai (My name has been tarnished, not just me, this ban is a blot on India). Chahe mujhe phaasi ho jaye, mein iski chhanbin karwaoonga, din-raat ek kar doonga (Let me be hanged, I will take this to higher courts and will leave no stone unturned),” the 74kg freestyle wrestler told PTI here. “I will appeal to the Prime Minister to investigate this matter thoroughly. The truth must come out, even if we need CBI for that. If Im the culprit, hang me, Im ready for it. Do a NARCO test on me and also the people who are involved.” Narsingh had claimed that his drinks/food were spiked during the pre-Games training in Sonepat by unknown persons, which was agreed to by the National Anti-Doping Agency that exonerated him on the dope charge and allowed him to take part in the Games. Narsingh further said he could have easily competed in the Olympics had the evidence of wrong doings were stronger. “Theres a big lobby involved and the names should be out. Its a matter of countrys future in sport. I have become a victim of all this without any fault of mine. All my four years hardships to win an Olympic medal have gone in vain.” He said that such kind of politics mars Indias medal prospects in Olympics. “If I dont get the justice the future for sport will be bleak. Not many will be encouraged to join sport and win medal for India. We ourselves are to be blamed.” Narsingh was evicted from the Olympics Village this morning as the ban meant his accreditation and entry was cancelled and he had to be shifted to a hotel from where he would leave for New Delhi. Without directly pointing fingers at anyone in particular, Narsingh said: “Its clear from the series of episodes who all are involved.” PTI TAP CM AH AHadvertisementlast_img read more

After LS fireworks JK resolution cleared

first_imgNew Delhi: Parliament on Tuesday approved a resolution abrogating special status to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution and a bill for splitting the state into two Union Territories.The resolution was adopted by Lok Sabha with 351 members voting in its support and 72 against it, while one member abstained. The bill to create two UTs -Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh – was passed by 370 votes in favour and 70 against. PM Modi hailed the passage of bills on Jammu and Kashmir in Parliament as a “momentous occasion” in parliamentary democracy and said a new dawn awaits the state which is now free from the “shackles” of vested interest groups.

Replying to the debate on the resolution for abrogating some provisions of Article 370 and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill 2019, Home Minister Amit Shah said that India will continue to claim the territories of Jammu and Kashmir under the occupation of Pakistan and ruled out any talks with separatist amalgam Hurriyat Conference.

The opposition in Lok Sabha on Tuesday accused the government of not consulting “stakeholders” before deciding on abrogating provisions of Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, a charge rejected by treasury benches which said Parliament represents the will of the people. Bengal Chief Minister on Tuesday said the Centre should have consulted all political parties before deciding to scrap Constitutional provisions that accorded special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Initiating the debate on the motions, Manish Tewari tried to trace the origins of Article 370 and said the then Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir chose to accede with India. T R Baalu (DMK) said the government should have got the resolution and the bill passed as it has a “brute” majority.

Italian prosecutors break up Chinese transport mafia

first_imgMILAN – Italian law enforcement has broken up a Chinese organized crime ring that used money from criminal activities to force its way into European trucking companies and control the movement of Chinese-made goods in much of Europe, anti-Mafia prosecutors said Thursday.Top anti-Mafia prosecutor Federico Cafiero de Raho told reporters in Florence that the organization used mafia methods, including intimidation, extortion and violence.He said the ring earned cash from drug trafficking, gambling and prostitution in locations throughout Italy, which they used to take over transportation companies in Italy, France, Spain and Germany.More than 50 people were under investigation, most in the Tuscan city of Prato, a key centre of Chinese business in Italy. Arrest warrants were issued for 33 people, including several already jailed on other charges, two in France and two in China.The criminal components hail mostly from the Chinese provinces of Zhejiang and Fujian, police said in a statement.The prosecutor said that the Chinese-run transport companies laundered money from the criminal businesses, and that they were also a form of illicit competition with legitimate companies operating under the law.last_img read more
