He also urged the members of G23, a ginger group within the Congress which seeks overhaul of the party's organisational apparatus, to join the BJP.

    If something is too good to be true, then it’s not true: Sunak’s parting shot to UK PM Johnson

    In the end, it was the case of ministers being briefed incorrectly about the appointment of a member of Parliament known for misconduct to an important government post that proved too much for Rishi Sunak, the first Indian-origin politician to hold the high UK Cabinet office of Chancellor of the Exchequer. While Sunak does not mention the now-suspended former Deputy Chief Whip Chris Pincher by name in his withering resignation letter, the tone makes clear that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s late admission of error in appointing Pincher was simply the last straw.

    DGCA issues show cause notice to SpiceJet after 8 incidents in last 18 days

    Aviation regulator DGCA on Wednesday issued a show cause notice to SpiceJet following eight technical malfunction incidents in the last 18 days. "The review (of incidents) transpires that poor internal safety oversight and inadequate maintenance actions (as most of the incidents are related to either component failure or system related failure) have resulted in degradation of the safety margins," the notice stated. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has given SpiceJet three weeks to respond to the notice. "Financial assessment carried out by DGCA in September 2021 has also revealed that the airline is operating on 'cash-​and-carry' (model) and ​s​uppliers/​a​pproved ​v​endors are not being paid on a regular basis leading to shortage of spares and frequent invoking of MELs (minimum equipment lists)," it stated. The DGCA said SpiceJet has failed to "establish a safe, efficient and reliable air services" under terms of Rule 134 and Schedule XI of the Aircraft Rules, 1937. Reacting to the DGCA notice, Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia asserted that passenger safety was paramount.

    'Biggest proof of honesty', says Arvind Kejriwal after CAG report shows revenue surplus during AAP regime

    Citing a CAG report which said the Delhi government was running in profit, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said the numbers were the "biggest proof of its honesty". AAP's honesty has deprived the opponents of their sleep, he said. The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report tabled in the Assembly on Tuesday said the Delhi government has had a revenue surplus from 2015-16 to 2019-20. It, however, mentioned that the Delhi government was able to maintain the revenue surplus largely because the pension liabilities of its employees were being borne by the central government and the Delhi Police's expenditure was borne by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs.

    Caribbean court finds anti-sodomy law unconstitutional

    A Caribbean court ruled Tuesday that a law in Antigua and Barbuda that criminalises sex between men is unconstitutional. The Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court found that “the selection of an intimate partner is a private and a personal choice." The ruling also said the twin-island nation's 1995 Sexual Offenses Act “offends the right to liberty, protection of the law, freedom of expression, protection of personal privacy and protection from discrimination on the basis of sex.” The ruling comes after a gay man who works at Antigua's Ministry of Health and a local group called Women Against Rape Inc. asked that the law be found unconstitutional.

    Police: Gunman fired 70 plus rounds at July 4 parade, 7 dead

    The gunman who attacked an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago fired more than 70 rounds with an AR-15-style gun that killed at least seven people, then evaded initial capture by dressing as a woman and blending into the fleeing crowd, police said Tuesday. A spokesman for the Lake County Major Crime Task Force told a news conference that the suspected shooter, who was arrested late Monday, used a high-powered rifle “similar to an AR-15" to spray bullets from atop a commercial building into a crowd that had gathered for the parade in Highland Park, a close-knit community on the shores of Lake Michigan that has long drawn the rich and sometimes famous. More than 30 people were wounded in the attack, including one who died Tuesday, task force spokesman Christopher Covelli said.

    Antony Blinken sets G-20 meeting with Chinese FM; silent on Russia

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken will see his Chinese counterpart this week at a meeting of foreign ministers from the Group of 20 bloc of nations that will likely exacerbate splits over Russia's war in Ukraine. While strained US-China ties will be the focus of Blinken's talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, the broader G-20 gathering in Indonesia of leading industrialised nations will almost certainly be overshadowed by the Ukraine conflict and its effect on global food and energy security. And, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will be there, marking the first time that he and Blinken will be in the same room, let alone the same city, at the same time in nearly six months.

    Canada to throw out 13.6M doses of AstraZeneca vaccine

    Canada is going to throw out about 13.6 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine because it couldn't find any takers for it either at home or abroad. Canada signed a contract with AstraZeneca in 2020 to get 20 million doses of its vaccine, and 2.3 million Canadians received at least one dose of it, mostly between March and June 2021. Following concerns in the spring of 2021 about rare but potentially fatal blood clots from AstraZeneca, Canada focused on using its ample supplies of the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. In July 2021, Canada promised to donate the rest of its procured supply, about 17.7 million doses. But in a statement Tuesday, Health Canada said that despite efforts to meet that pledge, 13.6 million doses have expired and will have to be thrown out.
