इलेक्ट्रिक कार की सवारी करेंगे मोदी के मंत्री, विदेश से मंगाई एक हजार गाड़ियां

नई दिल्ली| केंद्र सरकार के मंत्री और कई अधिकारी जल्द ही आपको इलेक्ट्रिक कार की सवारी करते हुए दिख सकते हैं. प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी पर्यावरण को बचाने और प्रदूषण को रोकने पर जोर देते हैं. अब लगता है कि केंद्र सरकार मोदी के पर्यावरण को प्रदूषण से बचाने की बात को एक कदम और आगे बढ़ाते हुए नवंबर महीने में में इलेक्ट्रिक कारों की सवारी शुरू कर देगा.

भारत लगभग विश्व का तीसरा बड़ा तेल खपत करने वाला देश है और ये ईंधन भारी मात्रा में पेट्रोल और डीजल वाहनों के जरिए प्रदूषण फैलाता है और इसी प्रदूषण को रोकने के लिए सरकार 10, 000 इलेक्ट्रिक कार सेडान खरीदने की तैयारी में है.

इन कारों को चार्जिंग के लिए दिल्ली-एनसीआर इलाके में करीब 4000 चार्जिंग स्टेशन भी बनाए जा सकते हैं. इसके लिए पहले 1000 गाड़ियां आएंगी और फिर 9000 गाड़ियां अगली किस्त में आएंगी.

टाइम्स ऑफ इंडिया की खबर के अनुसार, केंद्रीय मंत्री पीयूष गोयल का कहना है कि हमनें इसके लिए टेंडर निकाल दिए हैं, जल्द ही हम इस योजना को सरकारी विभागों के साथ शुरू करेंगे. ईईएसएल के एमडी सौरभ कुमार के अनुसार, कंपनी लगभग एक हजार इलेक्ट्रिक कार चार सीटों वाली खरीदेगी.

कार की खासियत
इस इलेक्ट्रिक कार की स्पीड 120-150 किमी/घंटा तक हो सकती है. पहले फेज में एनडीएमसी इलाके में 300-400 कारें दौड़ सकती हैं. जो कि कई मंत्रियों और अफसरों को मुहैया कराई जाएंगी. पियूष ने कहा कि हमनें सरकार के सामने प्रस्ताव पेश किया है कि गाड़ी, ड्राइवर और रखरखाव का काम हम ही करेंगे. उन्होंने कहा कि इससे काफी बचत हो सकती है और प्रदूषण कम करने में भी मदद मिल सकती है.

Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, Top Opposition Leaders to Attend Sharad Yadav’s Meet

New Delhi, August 17: Former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and senior leaders from opposition parties are likely to attend a meeting that seeks to save “composite culture”, to be hosted by Janata Dal United leader Sharad Yadav on Thursday.

The JD(U) MP said that apart from the Congress, the Left and the Samajwadi Party, representatives of other opposition parties, including the Trinamool Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party and Nationalist Congress Party, will also attend the meeting which is being widely seen as a show of strength against his party chief Nitish Kumar‘s decision to ally with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Asserting that “composite culture” was the soul of the Constitution, which he alleged was being “tinkered with”, Yadav said similar meetings would be held across the country. He added that the decision to hold the event was taken weeks ago.

#Gorakhpur probe report says children died due to oxygen crisis

A probe report released by the Gorakhpur district administration has reportedly identified oxygen deprivation as the reason for the death of several children admitted to the encephalitis and neonatal wards of the BRD Medical College Hospital between August 10 and 11, but refrained from blaming the Uttar Pradesh government for the tragedy.

As many as 72 children died at the Gorakhpur hospital after oxygen supply was cut off last week, a development that BJP president Amit Shah described as a “tragedy, a mistake that happened at some level”. He, however, rejected the Opposition’s call for chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s resignation.

The state government had ordered the investigation by Gorakhpur district magistrate Rajeev Rautela on August 12, a day after the incident came to light. The probe report sent to the chief secretary has reportedly charged the doctors, paramedical staff and clerks of the medical institution with criminal negligence, while maintaining that the state government was unaware of the situation.

According to sources, the district magistrate’s report has accused institute principal Rajiv Mishra of failing to alert the medical education and health departments to the impending oxygen crisis despite being aware of it. He did not inform Adityanath about the Rs 69 lakh in pending dues owed to oxygen supplier Pushpa Sales either, and instead went on leave soon after the chief minister’s visit to the medical college on August 9, it added.

The district magistrate’s report went on to demand strict action against Pushpa Sales for stopping oxygen supply – which it termed as an “emergency service” – to the medical college.

Mumbai: Sex Racket Busted in Hotel in Kalyan, 4 Women Rescued; Six People Arrested

Mumbai, August 17: Six persons were arrested in Kalyan as the anti-human trafficking cell of Thane police busted a sex racket that was operational at Relax Hotel and Garden in Kalyan on Wednesday. Reportedly, four women have also been rescued from the hotel, out of them one is from Bangladesh.

One of the police officials told the Times of India, “After getting the information about the racket, we went to the spot. A police officer, pretending to be a customer, went inside the bar and asked for a girl, on which the bar staff agreed and provided one girl along with a room inside the hotel. Following which, the officer immediately informed us and we raided the place and arrested the staff members”.

The people have arrested bar manager Harishchandra Shetty (57), cashier Rahul Dutt, and waiters Satyanarayan Pal (42), Ramakanat Mahant (28), Vijay Shetty and Vigyan Shamal (35). These accused will be sent to police custody for three days. The Thane police informed that the woman who is from Bangladesh carried a valid passport and visa and they will question the hotel owner to figure out if she was involved in the flesh trade.

क्या मध्य प्रदेश नगर निकाय चुनाव के नतीजे से खुश हैं अमित शाह?

भोपाल| मध्य प्रदेश नगरीय निकाय चुनाव में भारतीय जनता पार्टी (बीजेपी) के 25 उम्मीदवार जबकि कांग्रेस के 15 उम्मीदवारों ने जीत दर्ज की. तीन स्थानों पर निर्दलीय प्रत्याशी जीते हैं. लेकिन इस चुनाव में महत्वपूर्ण बात यह है कि विधानसभा चुनावों में लगातार बेहतर प्रदर्शन कर रही बीजेपी एमपी के निकाय चुनाव में पिछले चुनाव से 2 सीट नीचे खिसकी है जबकि 2012 के चुनाव में 9 सीट जीतने वाली कांग्रेस ने इस बार 15 सीटों पर कब्जा जमाया है. अब संशय यह है कि बीजेपी को लगातार भारी जीत दिलाने वाले पार्टी अध्यक्ष अमित शाह क्या इन नतीजों से खुश होंगे?

कांग्रेस मुक्त भारत का नारा बुलंद करने वाले शाह 18 से 20 अगस्त तक तीन दिवसीय प्रवास पर भोपाल में रहेंगे. बीजेपी संगठन और सरकार नगरीय चुनाव में कांग्रेस का सफाया करने में विफल रहे लेकिन इस चुनाव में बीजेपी को डबरा व कैलारस में पहली बार जीत मिली है. ये इलाके ज्योतिरादित्य सिंधिया के कार्य क्षेत्र के हैं.

बीजेपी के प्रदेश अध्यक्ष नंदकुमार सिंह चौहान ने नगर निकाय चुनाव के नतीजों को पार्टी कार्यकर्ताओं, प्रदेश सरकार और केंद्र सरकार के कामकाज की जीत बताया. वहीं कांग्रेस के नेता प्रतिपक्ष अजय सिंह ने कहा कि नगर निकाय चुनाव में विदेश मंत्री सुषमा स्वराज, मुख्यमंत्री शिवराज सिंह चौहान और बीजेपी अध्यक्ष नंद कुमार सिंह चौहान के क्षेत्र में बीजेपी की हार इस बात का संकेत है कि प्रदेश की जनता अब बदलाव चाहती है.

नंदकुमार ने कहा कि शिवराज ने 43 नगर निकाय में पूरा जोर लगाया, रोड शो किया और सारे हथकंडे अपना लिए इसके बाद भी 15 निकायों में कांग्रेस की जीत हुई. बीजेपी प्रत्याशियों की हार ने सरकार के कुशासन और शिवराज के कामकाज के खिलाफ वोट दिया है.

बीजेपी को सीट ज्यादा जरूर मिली हैं लेकिन ये नतीजे अमित शाह को सुकून देने वाले नहीं लगते क्योंकि वह हर चुनाव में कांग्रेस की बड़ी हार देखना चाहते हैं. लेकिन शाह के तीन दिवसीय प्रवास पर भोपाल आने से पहले उन्हें खुश करने वाला तोहफा देने से पार्टी चूक गई.
