Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday interacted with the NCC cadets and artistes who will perform in the Republic Day parade this Tuesday and said India’s parade pays tribute to the country’s Constitution, which “brings alive the world’s largest democracy”.

Lauding the spirit of various cadets and artistes who have prepared with zeal and fervour to perform in Tuesday’s parade, PM Modi said, “Coronavirus has really changed a lot. Masks, corona tests and social distancing (Do Gaz ki Doori) have now become part of our everyday life. Despite this, there is no lack in your enthusiasm.”

“When you step on the Rajpath with zeal, every countryman is filled with enthusiasm. When you show a glimpse of the rich art, culture, tradition and heritage of India, the head of every countryperson rises with pride,” PM Modi said in his conversation with the performers.

The Republic Day parade, PM Modi said, pays tribute to India’s great social, cultural heritage, as well as our strategic strength.

“This year our country is entering its 75th year of independence. This year is also the 400th Prakash Parv of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji. In the same year we are also making 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose,” PM Modi said.

Urging people to make the nation stronger, PM Modi said, “We did not get an opportunity to sacrifice our everything for the independence of the country. But the country has definitely given us the opportunity to give our best. We should keep doing what we can to make the country stronger.”

India will be holding it’s first Republic Day parade with Covid-19 protocols in place in a bid to contain the spread.

Unlike any previous parade, the jawans will be seen wearing masks and only 25,000 spectators will witness the function this year.

India and China on Sunday held yet another round of military talks in their latest attempt to ease tensions in eastern Ladakh, where the two sides have been locked in a lingering border standoff that has hit bilateral ties, at a time when frontline soldiers are deployed eyeball-to-eyeball at friction points on the contested Line of Actual Control (LAC), officials familiar with the development said.

The corps commander-level talks between the Indian Army and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) were held at Moldo on the Chinese side of the LAC. The outcome of the ninth round of military dialogue was not known when this report was filed.

The situation in the Ladakh sector remains tense and the ongoing military and diplomatic dialogue has not yielded results. “The ground situation remains as it was in August-September (when Indian Army took control of key heights on the southern bank of Pangong Tso). The military dialogue alone is unlikely to yield results. Diplomatic efforts will have to progress simultaneously,” said one of the officials cited above.

India has consistently pushed for comprehensive disengagement at all flashpoints and restoration of status quo ante of early April 2020 during the ongoing military talks whereas the Chinese side wants the Indian Army to first pull back troops deployed on strategic heights on the southern bank of Pangong Tso.

“Neither side is willing to vacate the positions held by them. It seems unlikely that the standoff will be resolved in the short term. However, talks will go on as it is important not to break communication,” said a second official.

Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria on Saturday said that India was ready to match China’s aggression in the eastern Ladakh theatre, where the two countries have been locked in a border row since May 2020. “If they (China) can get aggressive, we will also get aggressive. We have full preparations (to meet any eventuality),” said the IAF chief.

Last month, he said the likely reasons for Chinese actions in the Ladakh sector could include a planned escalation and an attempt to establish border claim lines and start border talks on the new positions, military signaling, domination efforts with escalation control and deployment and training of their Western Theatre forces in real war-like scenarios wherein the Galwan Valley incident was an overreach.

Senior Indian and Chinese commanders met on November 6 for the eighth round of military talks.

India has made all preparations to hold ground in Ladakh for an extended duration.

On January 12, army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane said that the Indian Army was prepared to hold its ground in eastern Ladakh “for as long as it takes” to achieve national objectives in case the ongoing military and diplomatic talks with China are prolonged.

Experts said talks are deadlocked because of serious differences between the two sides on the conditions of disengagement, as previously reported by Hindustan Times.

The PLA has moved back at least 10,000 soldiers from depth areas to rear positions but its frontline deployments remain unchanged.

Earlier, Naravane said India should not read too much into the withdrawal of Chinese troops from depth areas on the Tibetan plateau as there has been absolutely no troop cut by either side at friction points.

As thousands of farmers have started marching towards Delhi borders to participate in the tractor rally on Republic Day, agriculture organisations have decided to hold similar parades at state and district headquarters across the country.

Thousands of vehicles from across Haryana, Punjab, the Terai region of Uttarkhand and western Uttar Pradesh started leaving for Delhi’s borders for the tractor rally, leading to heavy traffic on various roads, including the busy Delhi-Amritsar, Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Meerut highways.

Traffic police officials in the four states mentioned above said several arterial roads leading to the national highways towards Delhi were choked with a huge number of vehicles as no directions had been issued to stop them. “I belong to a farming family and I decided to take my two children to Delhi for this historic parade,” said Ritu Rani, who drove a tractor from Chandigarh and was stuck at Bastara toll plaza in Karnal.

Although farm leaders such as Haryana Bhartiya Kisan Union (Charuni) president, Gurnam Singh Charuni, had appealed to farmers not to bring trailers, the farmers en route to Delhi said they were taking the trailers along as they will stay in Delhi until the laws are withdrawn. In Haryana, farm bodies have not planned any parade in the state as the focus is on the Delhi rally. However, farmers in Punjab would hold protests at nearly 100 locations. “We want the maximum number of farmers from Punjab to reach the Singhu, Tikri and other borders of Delhi along with their tractors and those who have stayed back should take part in the ongoing protest at the ongoing locations,” said Sukhdev Singh Kokrikalan, a general secretary of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ekta-Ugrahan), the farm body that has the highest number of members of all the bodies spearheading the stir.

 

From villages in western Uttar Pradesh, thousands of tractors had already left for Delhi, farm leaders said, even as the state police tried to persuade them not to participate in the rally. “We had evolved a formula of 1 village, 1 tractor, 11 persons from a village to support the movement,” Bharatiya Kisan Union youth wing state president Digamber Singh said. Chaudhary Diwakar Singh, national vice president of BKU (Bhanu), added they have aimed for 500,000 tractors to participate in parade.

At some places, police issued prohibitory orders to prevent any violence on Republic Day. Inspector general of police of Meerut range Praveen Kumar, who is camping in Ghaziabad since the beginning of the agitation, met farmer leaders and denied that police were preventing them from reaching Delhi. The statement came after media reports said farmers were being denied the purchase of diesel at some places in Uttar Pradesh; police said there were no such orders in place.

Close to 1,500 tractors with farmers from Uttarakhand will reach Delhi for the January 26 protest. Many have reached Haridwar and Uddam Singh Nagar districts. Farmer leader Vikas Chaudhary said from all the blocks of Haridwar district, farmers on tractors will be gathering at Narsain on Monday and then leave for Delhi in groups.

Several farmer, Dalit and worker groups in Karnataka are expected to take part in rallies across the state to express solidarity with proposed RD parade in Delhi. “We are going to take out a rally in Bengaluru and are expecting around 25,000 vehicles and even bullock carts. People will enter the city from all major roads leading into Bengaluru,” Kuruburu Shanthakumar, president of the Karnataka State Sugarcane Growers’ Association said on Sunday, adding similar protests would be held in Belagavi and Bagalkot also.

In Tamil Nadu, farmers and labour unions will take part in the Republic Day tractor rally in various districts across the state. “Tractors, bullock carts and two-wheelers or whatever vehicle we get, we will carry out a parade,” said AIKSCC state coordinator K Balakrishanan.

Five people, including a pregnant woman, were shot to death early Sunday inside an Indianapolis home in an apparent targeted attack, the city’s police chief said, decrying the “mass murder” killings as a “different kind of evil.”

The fatal shootings were discovered by police who had been called about 4 am to investigate reports of a person shot on the city’s near northeast side but first discovered a juvenile male with gunshot wounds, said Sgt. Shane Foley with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

No suspects were in custody as of Sunday evening.

As officers were investigating that juvenile’s shooting, Foley said police received information about 4.40 am, that led them to a nearby home, where they found five adults dead inside from apparent gunshot wounds. One of the five victims was a pregnant woman who was taken to an area hospital, where both she and the unborn child died despite life-saving efforts, Foley said.

He said the juvenile initially found with gunshot wounds is expected to survive and police believe he was wounded in the shootings that left the five others dead, along with the unborn child.

IMPD Chief Randal Taylor said police believe the deadly shootings were not random, but were a targeted attack carried out by an assailant or assailants.

He said the shooting came days after police department officials had announced their latest efforts to combat violent, drug-related crimes and “violence driven by poverty or desperation.”

“But what we saw this morning was a different kind of evil. What happened this morning, based on the evidence that’s been gathered so far, was mass murder,” Taylor said at a news conference. “More than that, we believe it was not random.”

Taylor said it was largest mass casualty shooting in the city in more than a decade, and urged the public to contact police and pass along any information they might have on the killings.

Mayor Joe Hogsett called the shootings “mass murder,” and said that an individual or individuals had brought “terror to our community.”

He said he had contacted officials with the FBI’s Indianapolis field office, the local US Attorneys office and other law enforcement agencies for assistance in the shooting investigation.

“I want those responsible to know that the full might of local, state and federal law enforcement are coming for them as I speak,” he said.

Al-Nahedh calls on business owners to protect info

Chairperson of Global Electronic Media Club in Kuwait Hind Al-Nahedh stressed the need for Arab and Kuwaiti communication platforms and search engines due to the inevitable conflict between governments around the world and companies that own global social networking sites, reports Al-Rai daily. She said “the year 2021 will not be in the interest of social media and search engines because of the expected conflicts between technology companies and governments. It is expected that each country has legislation in this regard, such as the legislation on intellectual property rights for music and other materials.”

She pointed out that countries have started to turn around legislation requiring platforms to pay content makers and digital newspapers instead of free publishing. After France’s experiment with Google and Britain with Facebook in this regard, Australia did the same and it is expected that India will follow suit, she added. She called on business owners to protect information about their enterprises, because such information could be lost if a search engine like Google is closed. She urged them to keep their data and clients’ numbers on platforms for each business. She emphasized at the same time that nothing is free forever, as search engines and social media platforms that provide services for free will inevitably collect fees from the users.

Celebration theme ‘peace has a home’

Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum bears testimony of the Kuwaiti resistance fighters’ courage during the 1990-1991 Iraqi occupation of the country, said the US Ambassador to the State of Kuwait Alina Romanowski. Liberation is a significant part of the two countries’ history, said the ambassador, re-affirming Washington’s commitment to safeguard Kuwait’s security, also noting that Washington has now remained as adamant to protect Kuwait as it was 30 years ago.

Romanowski was speaking on sidelines of her visit to the museum. She was accompanied by Secretary-General of the National Council of Culture, Arts and Letters Kamel Al Abduljelil and his assistant Dr Tahani Al-Adwani. The visit was part of a package of activities organized by the US embassy marking the 30th anniversary of liberating Kuwait.

The envoy was recalling the heroic stance of a group of Kuwaiti resistance fighters who bravely battled a large number of Iraqi occupation troops that surrounded their hideout in the district of Al-Qurain, 20 kilometers south of the capital, Kuwait City. This landmark testifies to the patriotism and will of the Kuwaiti people that rose up to the challenge, resisted injustice for sake of liberating the homeland of the blatant Iraqi aggression, Al Abduljelil for his turn stated. He paid tribute to the martyrs who had fallen for sake of keeping the homeland, lauding the brave stance of the United States that led the resistance. Al Abduljelil and Romanowski toured sections of the museum.

They were briefed by the museums’ curator Salman Boland, who noted that a number of the resistance had fallen as martyrs as a result of the bloody battle that erupted on February 14, 1991. The council had transformed the bullet poked building into a museum upon orders by the late Amir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi said the celebrations of the 60th National Day and the 30th Liberation Day will kick off early February under the theme “peace has a home,” taking into consideration health safety precautions.

This year’s celebrations, extending till March 31, will be the first national celebrations under the leadership of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, minister Al-Mutairi, also head of the committee for national celebrations said in a press statement on Sunday, after concluding the committee’s meeting. This year’s theme represents Kuwait’s efforts to achieve and protect peace around the world, initiated by His Highness the late Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al- Jaber Al-Sabah and carried on by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf, he noted. He added that a national campaign “raising our flag with pride” will start next Monday, calling on all citizens and expatriates to raise the Kuwaiti flag wherever they are, expressing their love for the country.

The Budgets and Final Accounts Committee in the National Assembly on Sunday met with representatives of the Foreign Affairs Ministry. However, Committee Rapporteur MP Badr Al-Dahoum disclosed the meeting was inconclusive because the officials who represented the ministry are not high ranking as needed.

He pointed out the committee expected interim Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmed Nasser Al-Muhammad or Deputy Minister Khalid Al-Jarallah to represent the ministry, but they did not attend the meeting. He said the committee will not hold meetings under the interim government without the acting minister or undersecretary.

In another development, MP Osama Al-Shaheen criticized the call of some parties to allow liquor for personal consumption under the pretext that the liquor ban increased the number of drug addicts. He stressed that liquor is strictly prohibited as per the Islamic Sharia and Kuwaiti laws.

Citing reports of the World Health Organization (WHO), he said almost three million individuals die every year due to liquor; while 237,000 men and 46,000 women are suffering from diseases caused by liquor addiction and most of them live in America and Europe where liquor is allowed.

Meanwhile, MP Abdullah Al-Turaiji asked interim Minister of Justice Nawaf Al-Yasseen if the Public Prosecution has interrogated any of the incumbent and former MPs or senior officials for public funds embezzlement or corruption charges and if such lawsuits were used as tools for political blackmail. He requested for the names of those interrogated if any, case numbers of lawsuits filed against them, charges, and reasons behind the delayed submission of some lawsuits to the Criminal Court.

MP Badr Al-Humaidi forwarded queries to interim Minister of Public Works and State Minister for Municipal Affairs Rana Al-Fares about the procedures taken regarding the faults found in the bridge and flyover projects along King Fahd Road.

He asked if the ministry referred the concerned contractor for investigation, if penalties were imposed on the contractor, target completion date of road repair works, if the contractor caused the delay in completing these repair works, penalties imposed on him if the answer is yes, if the ministry caused the delay, and action taken against the concerned employees if the answer is in the affirmative.

MP Marzouq Al-Khalifa asked interim Minister of Finance Khalifa Hamada if fees for the use of vacant plots in residential areas have been collected as per Law Nos. 8/2008 and 50/1994. These laws stipulate that owners of plots measuring more than 5,000 square meters – one plot or many plots in different locations – must pay an annual fee of KD10 per square meter. He wants to know the measures taken against those who did not pay, total amount of collected fees, and if any of the owners have been exempted from paying.

PAM okays new ‘regulation’ for one-year government contract

In its endeavor to amend the demographics and legalize employment conditions, the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) has approved a new regulation of the rules for granting work permits to emergency government projects through a temporary government work contract that does not exceed one year, pointing out that the contract is automatically canceled after one year from the date of expiration of the contract.

In this context reliable sources told the Al-Seyassah daily, that the new regulations for granting work permits include attaching a letter from the contracting party defining the number of workers and the duration of the contract, in addition to registering the contract with the Governmental Contracts and Projects Department as well as providing a letter of guarantee concerning the number of workers required to be recruited to implement the project.

PAM added, the government contract file is canceled automatically after the lapse of one year from the date of the contract’s expiration or its extensions. PAM has set the controls also for absenteeism notifications, indicating that the employer must, in the event of a worker’s discontinuation from work without an excuse, inform the competent department after seven days have passed from the date of absence in order for the prescribed measures to be taken, provided that upon obtaining the notice form the worker shall submit it to the concerned authorities in the Ministry of Interior within 15 days from the date of its receipt, otherwise it will be considered null and void.

The regulation obliges the employer who submits an ‘absent or absconding’ report on one of its employees must display a copy of the letter in a visible place at the workplace until the decision is taken on the issue.

Meanwhile, the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) recently announced the conditions for canceling the work permits of absconding expatriate workers, reports Al-Anba daily quoting a reliable source from the authority.

Speaking to the daily, the source revealed these conditions are as follows: PAM has not suspended the file or license of the entity or sponsor of the absconding worker for any reason, the work permit to be canceled is not expired, no other cancellation request is registered for the worker, and the entity or sponsor should issue a decision to terminate the worker.

The source added that if these conditions are met, the authority issues a decision to cancel the work permit and the worker’s residence permit in the records of the Interior Ministry will be canceled according to the service termination form and the decision of PAM.

The daily obtained a copy of Al-Sultan’s letter to the educational districts in which he said: “With reference to the letter of the assistant undersecretary for Financial Affairs that includes the names and other information about workers who are currently outside the country, have not resumed work till date and no salary suspension decisions have been issued against them according to the aforementioned letter; please instruct the competent authorities in your respective districts to verify the issuance of salary suspension decision against them and provide us with a detailed report that includes the reasons for not issuing the salary suspension decision.

They should inform us also about the decision to suspend the salary of these employees if any and measures taken against those who caused the delay in issuing the decision to stop the salary payment.”
