first_imgJannayak Janta Party leader and Hisar MP Dushyant Chautala said on Monday that the party will contest all 10 Lok Sabha and 90 Assembly seats in Haryana. The party may also contest on one seat in Delhi, he said.Party symbolMr. Dushyant said the JJP has just been recognised as a registered party and will get the party symbol next week. The party came into existence in December last year after the Indian National Lok Dal, a party founded by former Deputy Prime Minister Devi Lal, split following a bitter power struggle between his grandsons Abhay Chautala and Ajay Chautala. Dushyant Chautala is Ajay’s elder son.The Hisar MP also ruled out any possibility of alliance with the INLD for the upcoming polls.Asked about the Aam Aadmi Party deciding to fight on the Lok Sabha seats from Haryana on its own strength after supporting JJP’s candidate in the Jind bypoll in January, Mr. Dushyant said there was never any formal alliance with AAP. “AAP supported us, but there was no alliance with them. Nobody had announced any alliance,” he said.AAP, which had indicated that it could enter into a tie-up with the JJP after extending support to it in the Jind bypoll, failed to reach an agreement on seat-sharing with the fledgling outfit. “The JJP fought the Jind by-election within 40 days of formation of the party and gave a good fight to the BJP candidate. We beat the Congress hands down,” said Mr. Dushyant on his brother Digvijay Chautala finishing runner-up.INLD flayed“The party which made fun of us (INLD) and called us ‘bachha’ (child) forfeited its security deposit. This shows the people’s support, especially of the youth, to the JJP. We will perform well in the upcoming LS and then Vidhan Sabha polls,” the Hisar MP said.On his uncle (Abhay Chautala), whom he had recently dubbed as a “non-serious politician”, Mr. Dushyant said, “Blood relations in the family will remain intact, but political ideology differs and there will not be any compromise with the ideology.”last_img read more

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner breached the 600-run mark in this year’s Indian Premier League as he scored a 65 not out against Gujarat Lions to guide his team to the playoffs on Saturday.The defending champions had a must-win game in hand and Warner stitched a 126-run partnership with Vijay Shankar to take Hyderabad through.Once again, Warner stood tall for his team after Hyderabad had lost Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques early in chase of 155. The current Orange Cap holder has already scored 604 runs, including a century against Kolkata Knight Riders and four half-centuries.Last season as well, Warner had lead Sunrisers Hyderabad to the title, scoring a massive 848 runs on the way, falling only behind Virat Kohli’s 973 runs.This consistency from the captain has been the key to Hyderabad success but Warner said that the support he gets from the team helps him perform.”Shikhar got off to a flier but once he got out, I knew I had to play the anchor. To have the luxury to have guys come and rotate strike in the middle overs, we are very happy,” Warner said in the post-match presentation.Warner also mentioned that the wicket was tough to bat on.”With the way this wicket was, we knew this was going to be tough as the ball got older. When we lost two wickets, I was scratching my head but I spoke with Vijay. The ball was moving a bit initially,” Warner added.Warner seemed happy and relieved to have reached the playoffs and credited his bowlers for restricting Gujarat to 154 after a century-run opening stand between Dwayne Smith and Ishan Kishan.advertisement”It would have been a shame to miss out on the playoffs. They got to a flier and we were scratching our head. We tried to communicate after the first wicket,” Warner said about Rashid Khan’s picking up the first wicket of Dwayne Smith.”When we got couple of wickets we realized the wicket was slowing up. I told the bowlers to keep backing themselves to hit the hard length,” Warner continued.Warner also praised the performance of Mohammed Siraj, who got the man-of-match award for his 4/32, and said that India’s pace department looks strong at the moment.”Credit to Siraj for the way he bowled. He has been in an out for the last of couple of games. India are in a good stead as far as pace bowling is concerned. They have got some fantastic pace bowling names, from Bumrahs to Bhuvis to Umeshs to Ishants, the list just goes on. They keep executing their skills I think and as far as the guys in this team (Hyderabad) are concerned, they have my faith.”Warner said that from here on, they would only look be to be patient and keep executing their plans.”Obviously we are not worrying about the next few games. We could finish top two. We will take one game at a time. We have to wait patiently and execute our skills.”last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Bullard: West Ham midfielder Rice a modern No4by Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveJimmy Bullard admits he’s a fan of West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.The Irons fan is fulsome in his praise of England youngster Declan Rice, who he believes will continue thriving at the heart of midfield.He told the Mirror, “He’s a modern day No.4, keeping the ball, breaking it up, an athlete. But what about at centre-half, the position where he made his name in junior football?“If you’re a Manchester City who really own possession, he could be a great centre-half. But for West Ham, he’s a No.4.“If he was at City he could play centre-half, like John Stones, 100 percent. If you’re possession based, you’ve got to be as good as a midfielder.“Even goalkeepers now, they need to be able to play a ball, have vision.” last_img read more

first_imgCasablanca – Reyes Monfrte, Spanish writer and journalist, has recently released a novel based on real events depicting slavery and appalling living conditions of the Saharawis living in Tindouf camps.The 414-pages novel notably depicts the suffering endured by dark skinned girls in Tindouf’s Polisario camps, where practices of slavery are still ongoing.“BESOS de ARENA” tells the story of a young Saharwi woman who was subjected to slavery practices as a little girl. Her “masters” in Tindouf camps changed her origin name from Noah to Laia, just as they tragically altered her innocent childhood. The writer recalls the bad memories of Laia when she had to spend numerous nights in the open air tied with a rope for the simple reason that she couldn’t finish her daily chores.Laia’s early life reflects a story of a girl whose rights to childhood are cruelly violated, the simplest of which is the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child, as stated by the international Convention on the rights of the child.The main character’s testimonies went so far as to mirror the miserable living conditions of thousands of Saharawis inside what can be described as one of the largest open-air prisons in the world.Yet, the work is not the first of its kind. Violeta Ayala and Daniel Fallshaw filmed a controversial documentary in the Tindouf camps, exposing slave trade and depicting scenes of little girls offered for sale and subsequently tortured.Human Rights Watch showed at the time concerns over the facts revealed through the film.“In 2007 two Australian documentary filmmakers who had been filming in the camps stated that they had found evidence that dark-skinned refugees in the camps were victims of ongoing, traditional practices of slavery,” said the human rights watchdog.“These inhuman practices have been criticized by international NGOs,” the author of  “Besos de Arena”  told Argentina’s Telam  press agency.She went on to explain that in the past people indulged “in trafficking in exchange for camels or settling a debt, but now many women are subjected to  this tradition without asking anything in return.” Reyes Monforte added that “women are also bartered for goods.”Slavery is still a common practice in the camps, condemned by both Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.HRW  highlighted that  “Black-skinned Sahrawis constitute a small minority of the population in the camps. Some members of that minority are “owned” by “white” persons or families.”Polisario denied its responsibility over the practice, but the reality is in sharp contrast with the Front’s allegations, given the fact that a “slave” woman cannot marry without the consent of her “owner.” According to HRW, a religious  judge or “qadi” will decline to perform the marriage in case a “master”  doesn’t approve of it.Slavery practices will continue to take place in the camps run by Polisario, just as human conscience will go on condemning unjust inhuman practices around the world, including Tindouf.last_img read more
