    Union minister unaware of ground realities on MGNREGA in West Bengal : BJP

    The West Bengal BJP has claimed that union minister Kapil Moreshwar Patil, who said that he does not know of any corruption in the implementation of MGNREGA in West Bengal, is unaware of the ground reality related to it and officers have submitted misleading reports to him. The ruling TMC seized the opportunity and said the state BJP has been lying about corruption in the implementation of the scheme in the state and should "apologise" for making "false allegations". "I don't know what he (Patil) has said. Maybe because he is a minister of state, he is not well aware of the facts and ground realities. You (journalists) have to speak to the union cabinet minister in charge of the department," West Bengal BJP president Sukanta Majumdar said on Thursday.

    UN envoy hails positive developments in Colombia, warns against violence

    The top UN envoy for Colombia, Carlos Ruiz Massieu, has hailed the encouraging political developments in Colombia and warned against persistent violence as an obstacle to the consolidation of peace in the country. Over the past few months, Colombians took part in a hard-fought political campaign leading to the election of President Gustavo Petro and Vice-President Francia Marquez, who will be sworn in on August 7, and of a new Congress that will be installed on July 20, Massieu told the Security Council in a quarterly briefing on Thursday. Electoral outcomes increasingly reflect the diversity of the country's vibrant society. More guarantees exist now for exercising political opposition. And 16 representatives of victims from conflict-affected regions will have their voices heard in Congress. This too will be an unprecedented Congress in that it will include the largest-ever share of women lawmakers of close to 30 per cent of all Congress, he said.

    China's economic growth falls to 0.4 per cent amid virus shutdowns

    China's economic growth plunged to 0.4 per cent over a year earlier in the latest quarter after Shanghai and other cities were shut down to fight coronavirus outbreaks, but the government said a "stable recovery" is underway. Growth slid from the previous quarter's already-weak 1.3 per cent after restrictions were imposed starting in late March but activity improved in May and June, the National Bureau of Statistics announced Friday. The anti-virus controls disrupted shipping in Shanghai, the world's busiest port, and disrupted manufacturing there and in other major cities. Millions of families were confined to their homes, depressing consumer spending. Most economic forecasters expect China to fail to hit the ruling Communist Party's 5.5 per cent growth target this year.

    Saudi Arabia lifts ban on Israeli flights amid Joe Biden visit

    Saudi Arabia on Friday opened its airspace to "all air carriers," signalling the end of its longstanding ban on Israeli flights overflying its territory- a key step toward normalization between the two nations as President Joe Biden visits the region. In a statement posted to Twitter hours before Biden is set to become the first US leader to fly directly from Israel to the kingdom, Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation said it was announcing "the decision to open the Kingdom's airspace for all air carriers that meet the requirements of the Authority for overflying." The announcement is an incremental step toward the normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel and builds on the strong but informal ties the erstwhile foes have developed recent years over their shared concerns about Iran's growing influence in the region.
