Top News Actress Vidya Balan, After the meeting when Bhat was asked about the possibility of an alliance between the BJP and PDP, he cryptically replied,"Snakes can marry rats and bulls chase lizards Anything can happen with reference to government formation But at present we can say let’s not count stars which lie beyond" File image of PDP leader Mufti Mohammed Sayeed and Prime Minister Narendra Modi PTI Bhat’s philosophical remarks were neither seen as an extension of support nor his opposition to the alliance but it created a political furore in the Valley with many in separatist camp calling for his expulsion from Hurriyat’s Executive Council But now after the disclosure by PDP president Mehbooba Mufti it seems that the January meeting between Bhat and her father was not just a meeting between “two friends” as Bhat had described it at that time but as the first stepping-stone towards taking the Hurriyat Conference on board for the larger political process that has begun with the meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif Mehbooba said on Saturday that her party had sought approval from the ‘Hurriyat party’ for the government formation with the BJP “With (former prime minister Atal Bihari) Vajpayee the experience was good but forming an alliance with the present BJP was not easy for us It took us two months to decide the agenda of alliance Hurriyat party was also called and getting its consent on most of the issues the government is working” Mehbooba said while speaking at ‘Agenda Aaj Tak’ in New Delhi The ‘Hurriyat party’ to which Mehbooba was referring is the moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference of which Bhat is a constituent Headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq the moderate Hurriyat has held talks with the previous NDA government led by Vajpayee India and Pakistan will bring them on board again for talks when they resume talks it’s widely believed The Hurriyat publicly terms the mainstream parties as the “enemies” of the people of Jammu and Kashmir The moderate faction of the Hurriyat rejected outright Mehbooba’s remarks saying they were against the BJP-PDP alliance since day one “How could it be possible that we have met the PDP to give them consent for their alliance with the BJP It is simply a lie” its chairman Mirwaiz said Bhat too refused to acknowledge Mehbooba’s assertion but said that despite being on two sides of the political divides people can still be friends “Let people say whatever they have to It would be too low to even acknowledge this” he said It has been 10 months since the BJP-PDP coalition came into office in Srinagar Although the Centre led by Modi has announced a much needed economic package of Rs 80000 crore to the state analysts warn that Kashmir needs a political package more than an economic one “If at all this is true Bhat might have been in favour of this alliance knowing well that only a right-wing party can deliver on Kashmir if it wishes to” Manzoor Ahmad Shawal a political observer based in Srinagar told Firstpost Mirwaiz in an interview to The Economic Times had saida Hindu nationalist party at the helm of affairs in New Delhi can succeed in the resolution of the Kashmir issue "You need a party which has numbers strength and courage to take political initiatives We thought the BJP could be that party In that context in the past 30 years it seems Vajpayee was the only person who could be engaged with There is also the fact that even when he was foreign minister he would advocate that issues have to be settled with Pakistan He was one of the few faces who would understand the dynamics of the problem and was ready to walk that extra mile in reaching out to the people We were hopeful that this NDA will revisit his policy” he had said in the interview Even as the Supreme Court pulled up the Centre and Uttar Pradesh governments over a CBI probe into the death of journalist Jagendra Singh in Shahjahanpur the state government has offered compensation to his family However there is no word on the probe According to a CNN-IBN report the UP government has offered Rs 30 lakh as compensation and jobs for two family members of the deceased after which the family is said to have called off their protest Jagendra Singh Image courtesy: Singh’s Facebook page Earlier on Monday the SC had issued notices to the Central and the Uttar Pradesh governments on a plea for a CBI probe into the killing of Singh allegedly at the behest of state minister Ram Murti Verma A notice had also been issued to the Press Council of India All three have to respond within two weeks PIL petitioner S Jain urged the court to frame guidelines and issue directions that in the case of an unnatural death of a journalist the investigation should be monitored by the district and sessions judge Singh a Saharanpur-based journalist was doused with kerosene and allegedly set on fire by some Uttar Pradesh police peresonnel after a raid at his residence He died of burn injuries on 8 June Singh had allegedly invokedthe wrath of minister Verma for posting the minister’s alleged illegal mining and land grabbing activities on his Facebook page Singh’s family had gone on a hunger strike demanding a CBI probe into his death even as UP CM Akhilesh Yadav had backed the accused minister Verma The family had said that Singh had written a Facebook post against Verma regarding his alleged involvement in illegal mining and land grabbing after which the minister sent cops to his house who doused Singh with kerosene oil and then set him on fire Singh’s family had registered an FIR against minister Verma and five others including policemen at Puwayan police station of Shahjahanpur after he died during treatment The FIR was lodged under IPC 302 (murder) 120 B (criminal conspiracy) 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) The video footage of dying declaration which went viral on news channels and social media showed Jagendra Singh stating "Why did they have to burn me If the minister and his goons had a grudge they could have beaten me instead of pouring kerosene and burning me" With agency inputs Written by Bibek Debroy | Published: September 1 2016 12:02 am Under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 there are the 2001 prevention of cruelty to animals (slaughterhouse) rules Top News “All urban slaughterhouses as well as the butchers and flayers working there should be licensed and entry to slaughterhouses strictly regulated Greater proportion of the income derived from slaughterhouses should be spent on their upkeep efficient running and improvement” I can quote much more in the same vein This isn’t something the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has said It’s a quote from a committee set up in 1955 (report submitted in 1957) by the ministry of food and agriculture about slaughterhouses and meat inspection practices Under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 there are the 2001 prevention of cruelty to animals (slaughterhouse) rules Section 3(1) states “No person shall slaughter any animal within a municipal area except in a slaughterhouse recognised or licensed by the concerned authority empowered under the law for the time being in force” The rules go on to specify the amenities in slaughterhouses and lairages and the processes for slaughter Under the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006 we also have the food safety and standards (licensing and registration of food businesses) regulations of 2011 From Schedule 1 of this a Central license will be required for “all slaughterhouses equipped to slaughter more than 50 large animals or 150 or more small animals including sheep and goats or 1000 or more poultry birds per day” We thus have a dual FSSAI (the authority under the Food Safety and Standards Act) and municipal registration/licence for the high-end slaughterhouses and only a municipal registration/licence for others There is no getting away from some kind of registration/licence — with slaughterhouses divided into ovine (sheep) caprine (goats) suilline (pigs) bovine (cattle) poultry and fish Those are actually FSSAI registration heads not municipal ones We have FSSAI data from last year when the health minister gave a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha Sixty-two slaughterhouses are registered with the FSSAI Twenty are from UP and every other state has less than 10 Assuming all those who should get registered under the FSSAI do so this is a remarkably small number Through the department of animal husbandry dairying and fisheries because of an RTI query we also have data for 2014 on the number of registered slaughterhouses This is “as reported by states/UT governments” and is therefore about municipal ones The total number comes to 1623 with more than 100 in Andhra Pradesh (183) Maharashtra (316) Tamil Nadu (130) and UP (285) A state like West Bengal has a mere 11 We want registration because amenities and conditions improve and clearly these are gross underestimates There have been writ petitions and special leave petitions in the Supreme Court since 2001 To quote from a 2014 order of the SC “We notice that there is no periodic supervision or inspection of the various slaughterhouses functioning in various parts of the country Action Taken Reports would indicate that in many states slaughterhouses are functioning without any licence and even the licensed slaughterhouses are not following the various provisions as well as the guidelines issued by the MoEF which we have already referred to in our earlier orders” There is also the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) which tells us there are 3600 authorised slaughterhouses compared to the other figure of 1623 If we go back to 1992 that 3600 figure becomes more specific because we have a CPCB industry document on slaughterhouses meat and seafood processing This tells us: “As reported by the Ministry of Food Processing a total of 3616 recognised slaughterhouses” exist With that cut-off of 100 there are 343 in Andhra Pradesh 633 in Karnataka 715 in Kerala 261 in MP 282 in Maharashtra 380 in Rajasthan 183 in Tamil Nadu and 407 UP Rather remarkably West Bengal still has 11 These are recognised/registered slaughter-houses Therefore the two sets of numbers (from 1992 and 2014) should be comparable With the exception of West Bengal where the figure of 11 is frozen in time the story is one of declining numbers across states Unless slaughterhouses are deliberately deregistering themselves and an explanation can be advanced for that what has probably occurred is some have simply closed down unable to comply with better standards and enforcement It is no different from the story of pharmaceutical firms Indeed there should be fewer small slaughterhouses and more large ones But the picture gets muddier if you bring in cases before the NGT That happens because environmental clearances and pollution control norms are required One such case was from UP and the CPCB told the NGT that out of 126 slaughterhouses in UP only one possessed all the requisite clearances In the same case the UP Pollution Control Board (UPPCB) reported 58 slaughterhouses Even on recognised/registered ones we seem to have no clear handle on the numbers It gets worse if you bring in the unregistered ones Unless it is a slaughterhouse outside a municipal area unlike other segments of the economy where informal doesn’t necessarily mean illegal in this case unregistered is identical with illegal I have seen figures that show there are 40000 slaughterhouses They are not just illegal some are ancient There is one in Tangra a 150-year-old slaughterhouse that the Kolkata Municipal Corporation is now modernising For all one knows the one Robert Clive constructed in 1760 still exists The Tannery road/Pottery road complex in Bengaluru is also ancient We do have a

has told state governments that paramilitary forces cannot substitute state police and should be deployed only in emergencies In a communication to all states the ministry also asked all state governments to set up a committee for examining requirements of central armed police forces (CAPF) by keeping in view the internal security intelligence inputs and availability of central forces in nearby locations File image of home minister Rajnath Singh Reuters It said the central government has formulated standard operating procedures (SOPs) for deployment of CAPFs and according to it the central forces would be able to meet more pressing commitments like guarding borders fighting an insurgency anti-national operations and in related situations which need immediate mobilisation of forces "CAPFs can’t substitute the state police force as their deployment is related to the emergency crisis in states for maintaining law and order" the communication said The home ministry’s missive came after the West Bengal government moved the Calcutta High Court and got a stay against the central government’s move to withdraw 700 CAPF personnel from Darjeeling where an agitation demanding a separate state is on West Bengal chief minister even spoke to Union home minister Rajnath Singh and is said to have protested the central government’s move to withdraw the CAPFs from Darjeeling The ministry in the communication said the state governments often make requests to the Centre for deployment of CAPFs even for occasions where state should normally be in a position to take all security measures from their own resources by dispatching police and state armed police "State governments are reluctant to de-induct CAPFs and keep requesting for an extension which should not ordinarily be made unless there are adequate security reasons for their extension "Deployment of CAPF companies has a cost associated with it and the state governments are required to pay the charges as laid down in the government policy Incidentally there are significant outstanding amount against the states and Union territories" it said Asking the state governments to follow the SOPs the ministry said each state should constitute a state-level committee under the chairmanship of Additional Director General of Police (law and order) where representatives of Intelligence Bureau and CAPFs at the level of DIG may be co-opted "These committees may examine and scrutinise the requirements of CAPFs by keeping in view the internal security previous scale of deployment optimal utilisation of state resources intelligence inputs and availability of CAPFs in nearby locations" it said The recommendation of the committee must be specific and indicate the quantum of CAPFs deployment and duration along with the jurisdictions Requests for extension of deployment and increase in the quantum must also be examined by the committee on similar lines "Government has sanctioned many India Reserve Battalions in the states and these are not being used optimally by the state governments "The purpose of the IRBs scheme is to make the state self sufficient in dealing with the law and order and internal security situation by avoiding being dependent on CAPFs" the home ministry communication said By: Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: January 8 2016 4:30 am Ali is set to perform in Kolkata after his
