    Bihar Education Minister clarifies on directives to teachers

    Bihar Education Minister Vijay Kumar Chaudhary has clarified that the department has only appealed to the government teachers to keep an eye on the consumption of liquor in the state. It was just an advisory.

    "We have not given any target to teachers or they are not under any pressure to pass the information to authority about liquor consumption. We have just appealed to them to inform us if they see any mischief in their respective jurisdictions. They do not require additional duty to monitor liquor consumption. We have appealed to every person in the state to inform us if they find people are consuming liquor. Teachers are also included in it. It is the duty of every person to make liquor ban successful in the state but there is no pressure on them," Chaudhary said.

    Earlier on Friday, Sanjay Kumar, the additional chief secretary of the education department of Bihar government, had written a letter dated January 28, 2022 to deputy directors of all zones, district education officers, and district education officers of primary, middle and higher secondary schools of Bihar to keep vigil on liquor consumption in their respective areas.

    The Trinamool Congress-Maharashtra Gomantak Party (TMC-MGP) alliance on Saturday promised to revive Goa's virtually non-functional mining sector within 250 days of coming to power, while also assuring to double the state government's spending on health and education sectors, if the alliance comes to power in the coastal state. A joint manifesto released by the two alliance partners on Saturday has also promised 33 per cent job reservation for women in government and private sectors.

    Anti-CAA protests: 'Poor people were used as cannon fodder'

    The prosecution opposing former Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid's bail plea in the northeast Delhi riots case has submitted that the protest was committed in a planned way and the poor people were used as 'cannon fodder'.

    The anti-CAA protests were held in Muslim-dominated areas in the national capital, and the poor people were used cannon fodder, the prosecution argued. Delhi Police has registered a case against Khalid and several others under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) and other provisions of the law, and they are accused of being the "masterminds" of the riots which had left 53 people dead and over 700 injured.

    Police had accused Khalid of organising a conspiracy meeting and supervising the site of protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. The prosecution has compared the riots with the 9/11 attack by saying as just before 9/11 happened when all the people were involved, they reached a particular place and took training, and a month before that, they moved to their respective positions. That is what is relevant in this case also.
