said he would stage a fast in front of Parliament against the Centre for "not taking any step to rein in Lt Governor Kiran Bedi" who he alleged was functioning in an "autocratic manner" Welfare Minister M Kandasamy in a five-page letter to Chief Minister V Narayanasamy referred to "difficulties" his departments had been facing allegedly since the present government was formed last year File image of Kiran Bedi PTI He alleged it was due to the "negative stand of Kiran Bedi in approving various decisions taken by the Cabinet to benefit farmers and other sections of people" Kandasamy elected from Embalam (reserved) segment said he would inform the people in his constituency and stage a fast in front of Parliament in the next two months to condemn "the silence of the central government" which he alleged has not taken any steps to rein in Bedi who is functioning in an "utterly autocratic manner" He alleged that Bedi was adopting "an anti-government" stance and the finance secretary had also been acting on the advice of the Lt Governor to turn down files relating to several welfare measures formulated by his departments The minister also requested the chief minister not to include his name photo and also the departments and portfolios he was holding in the annual new year diaries and official calendars that would be brought out in 2018 A copy of the letter was released to the media The minister’s letter comes a day after Bedi shot off a letter to the National Commission for Scheduled Castes seeking action against the Puducherry Adi Dravidar Development Corporation Bedi said she had received a complaint from Puducherry-based Rajiv Gandhi Human Rights Organisation alleging that the corporation had "wasted Rs 63 crore meant for the welfare of the

more time for investigation of Room 345 of Hotel Leela Palace where former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda Pushkar was found dead in January 2014 File image of Sunanda Pushkar and Shashi Tharoor AP Metropolitan Magistrate Dharmender Singh asked the Deputy Commissioner of Police concerned to appear before him observing that despite its order to de-seal the room which has remained locked since 17 January 2014 the police are seeking more time on the pretext of investigation The police told court that they have sent some more items collected from the room to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) and sought more time to keep the room sealed as they have to collect evidence The court said it wants the DCP present on 12 September the next date fixed for hearing due to lethargic attitude and laxity on part of investigating agency On 21 July the court ordered the de-sealing of Room 345 saying that the hotel cannot be made to suffer continuously merely because the investigating team cannot ascertain the cause of death The hotel had told the court that as the room has been locked for over three years termites bugs and other pests have spoiled the whole room and even the adjoining areas It also said that it would allow the investigators to take whatever things they want as evidence from the room even as it noted that no investigating agency had visited it for the past one year and keeping the room closed for three years had caused it great financial loss By: AP | Duesseldorf | Updated: June 30 2017 11:28 am Cycling can rightly argue that it is one of the most scrutinized sports and far from alone in being affected by the doping scourge (Source: Reuters) Top News A scene from Godfather III about sums up where the Tour de France is with doping as the 2017 edition begins on Saturday In the movie Al Pacino’s character Michael Corleone laments that his efforts to become a bona fide businessman are being undermined by his family’s underworld connections “Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in” he wails Likewise cycling’s showcase race seemed largely to have extricated itself from the swamp of widespread blood doping that characterized Lance Armstrong’s era The 12 riders banned or provisionally suspended by cycling’s governing body the UCI in 2015 and 2016 for using blood-boosting agents like Armstrong were largely second-tier Just one France’s Lloyd Mondory had previously raced in the Tour _ in 2009 and 2010 when Armstrong was still competing But just four days before the 2017 edition gets rolling in Duesseldorf Germany came a reality check The UCI announced that Andre Cardoso a seasoned pro who was to have raced in support of 2007 and 2009 champion Alberto Contador in his quest for another Tour title tested positive for EPO a hormone banned because it stimulates the production of oxygen-carrying blood cells EPO was also part of Armstrong’s doping armory when he cheated his way to seven Tour wins from 1999-2005 Those victories were subsequently all stripped from the Texan who has been banned for life leaving the sport and the Tour laboring under corrosive clouds of suspicion Time and cycling’s sustained anti-doping efforts have helped to heal some of those wounds and to win back fans in countries like Germany where broadcasters had turned their back on the Tour But Cardoso’s positive test shows that the race isn’t out of the woods yet _ and likely never will be “We keep saying that time is the healer of the sport and what people did 10 years ago to ruin the sport will be healed by time and the fact that nobody is doing it anymore” Team Sky rider Luke Rowe told The Associated Press But Cardoso’s test he added “just puts a bad shadow on the sport again” Describing himself as angry and frustrated Rowe said he’d like the Portuguese veteran of seven Tours of Italy and Spain to be banned for life “especially if you are caught with something as obvious as that” “Guys like him should never be able to race a bike again” said Rowe who is racing with reigning champion Chris Froome for a third time at this Tour Cardoso said in a statement that he has never taken banned substances having “seen firsthand through my career the awful effects that performance-enhancing drugs have had on our sport” But if a follow-up test also comes back positive for the Trek-Segafredo team racer the conclusion must be that cycling still hasn’t convinced all of its most experienced athletes that cheating isn’t worth the risk And that’s despite the thousands of yearly tests and the regular scrutiny of riders’ blood for tell-tale signs of doping For Brian Cookson president of the sport’s ruling body the UCI Cardoso’s positive result shows that testing is working “I don’t think it demonstrates that there are many many other riders doping” he told the AP “From time to time an athlete is foolish and the chances are they are going to get caught” Cycling can rightly argue that it is one of the most scrutinized sports and far from alone in being affected by the doping scourge Its anti-doping unit says it conducted a whopping 15000 tests last year _ the bulk of them on male professional road racers On top of that 41 pro teams are being monitored by the blood passport program that cycling helped to pioneer tracking riders’ blood values over time for any suspicious variations Pro teams provide more than two-thirds of the costs “From being a pariah and an outcast almost because of our poor doping record now I think the reverse is true” Cookson said “We have a very good reputation in the anti-doping world and the wider sports world” At the Tour cycling’s anti-doping unit is planning an average of eight tests each day _ always including the race leader and winner of each stage plus six others The best riders’ samples will be stored for 10 years for possible retesting as detection methods improve Anti-doping officials and French police have again agreed to share intelligence to help target tests In exceptional circumstances sample collectors can even visit riders in the middle of the night The anti-doping unit director Francesca Rossi told the AP that Cardoso’s positive test doesn’t signal a renewed EPO trend “I’m not worrying because it’s one positive for a long time Statistically this is acceptable” she said “We are not anymore in the EPO era for sure” Tripping up Cardoso before he took the start spared the Tour further embarrassment The 32-year-old said sample collectors visited him at home on June 18 Irish rider Nicolas Roche embarking on his eighth Tour said he was surprised but also relieved that Cardoso was caught because “when someone tests positive once in a while it also means that the test works which is in a way reassuring” “I was just like `Really do riders still think they can get away with it”’ he said The use of chemical boosters has been part of the story of the physically punishing Tour since its earliest days That has never stopped millions of people from lining its roads each summer “You had to be naive to think it couldn’t happen again And it will happen again It’s logical Just because we haven’t seen riders caught for EPO for a while doesn’t mean that riders weren’t taking it” said Marc Madiot head of the French FDJ team “We could meet again in five 10 15 or 20 years and there are still bound to people who will try to get around the rules” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: August 16 2014 12:05 am It has been suggested that judges sometimes indulge in mutual give-and-take Related News By:JL Gupta The clamour against the courts has been continuous Initially there was talk of a “committed” judiciary Then of judicial accountability and transparency And so on The latest is — why should judges choose judges Hence the effort to replace the collegium by a Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC) The bill has already been passed in both Houses of Parliament Is it the right way to do so I think No Let us see what is happening in the country Who selects ministers The prime minister and chief ministers Who selects the generals The generals Who selects army commanders The army Who selects government servants The government Why then do we want a different method of selection for the judiciary Why should the judiciary not be allowed to select judges Is it an effort to destroy the one institution that has performed and exposed scams and scandals like Coalgate and 2G The founding fathers created a judicial pyramid The subordinate courts were the base Then came district courts The high courts followed at the state level The Supreme Court was placed at the apex They also laid down the procedure for the selection and appointment of judges The selection and appointments of the officers in the subordinate and district courts are made in accordance with the rules framed and promulgated by the government in accordance with the Constitution The “control” vests in the high court In so far as appointments to the higher judiciary are concerned the matter was considered by the Supreme Court in the second and third judges’ cases The court’s dictum has been followed Judges to the high courts and Supreme Court have been selected by collegiums for some time now The scope for interference by the political executive has been reduced to a minimum Consequently criticism from different quarters is understandable But can the JAC improve the quality of judges No system of selection can be absolutely perfect Institutions run by human beings will reflect human frailties A fact that deserves mention is that the Constitution itself provides for Union and state public service commissions to make selections to the various services The commissions have been in place for a long time Has their performance been beyond reproach or even satisfactory Have these commissions not been described as “personal” service commissions The kind of eminent persons proposed to be included in the JAC are usually members of the state and Union public service commissions too Yet what do we have Petitions in courts alleging all kinds of malpractices Still more states have moved petitions prosecuted members or chairpersons of the commissions for different irregularities and even offences Would a similar commission for judicial appointments change everything for the better Looks unlikely Second the state is the single-largest litigant in the country Should a litigant have any say whatsoever in the choice of judges Third in a democracy independence of the judiciary is of paramount importance A fearless and independent judiciary is a basic feature of the Constitution of India It is a part of the “basic structure” and should not be sacrificed at the altar of the executive’s anxiety or ego Legally speaking the validity of the proposed bill is extremely doubtful The members of the collegium also monitor the performance of judges and lawyers who have to be considered for appointment to the high courts or the Supreme Court They examine judgments of the persons who are considered for elevation So far as the JAC is concerned the majority shall not have that opportunity They will necessarily have to depend upon hearsay evidence This will be totally improper It is alleged that the collegium does not have a mechanism to “verifythe character and antecedents of judges” I think it is not so The court and/ or the chief justice can always ask the concerned agencies to do the needful In certain cases it has been actually done I think the fear is whollyunfounded It has been suggested that judges sometimes indulge in mutual give-and-take As a result some people who should not have become judges at all have been elevated to still higher positions and courts it is argued Assuming this to be correct can anybody claimwe are totally impervious to all kinds of political and social influences or pressures Has it never happened that?
