Polls open in Mali presidential election

28072013
Malians have started casting votes for a new president, as polls have opened across the country. Twenty-seven candidates have wrapped up their campaigns amid a turbulent 18 months since the overthrow of the last democratically-elected government and Mali being plunged into a bloody battle with extremist insurgents. Security has been ramped up, as the population is weary in its recovery from a rebellion in the north which resulted in a protracted military intervention by France.
Many areas remain at high risk. If this round of voting doesn’t yield a winner, a second round is scheduled for August 11. A few observers have doubts as to Mali’s readiness for the election and transition to recovery. Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes amid the violence – the majority will not be able to vote. Islamist militants in the north also put the election at risk by warning fellow Muslims not to participate and promising to burn polling stations. Fairness is another concern in areas still occupied by Tuareg rebels, like the town of Kidal. French troops remain in the country with Chadian forces as part of a UN mission intended to stabilize the situation.Media agencies

TRADERS WELCOME SUSPENSION OF FORM T-2 BY DELHI GOVERNMENT IN DELHI

TRADERS WELCOME SUSPENSION OF FORM T-2 BY DELHI GOVERNMENT IN DELHI
 
GOVT SILENCE ON CBI RAID ON VAT DEPARTMENT SUSPICIOUS
 
CAIT DEMANDED STATEMENT FROM CHIEF MINISTER
the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has complimented DElhi Chief Minister Smt. Shiela Dikshit for her order made yesterday suspending operations of Form T-2 in Delhi which was imposed by Delhi VAT Department on traders. It will give immense relief to traders of Delhi who were facing great trouble in importing goods from other states but the CAIT has also said that suspension is an interim relief, the Government should withdraw the said Form and it should also concentrate to resolve other key issues concerning VAT which are harrasing traders. It is noteworthy to mention that on the requisition of CAIT, the Delhi CM had convened a meeting of Senior Officials of the Government on 10th June at Delhi Secretariat where she advised the officials to ensure smooth passage of business in Delhi. The CAIT has also demanded Delhi CM to make a statement on CBI raids on VAT Department of Delhi held a couple of days back
It is pertinent to note that on pretext of keeping check on illegal entry of goods in Delhi former VAT Commissioner Mr. Rajendra Kumar imposed Form T-2 on Delhi traders last year under which every dealer was responsible to file online information about likely entry of goods in Delhi and it was also obligatory for the vehicle carrying goods in Delhi to posses a photocopy of the online form -2 submitted  by the dealer and only then any goods can enter into Delhi. The traders while calling it as quite not practicable resorted to strong protest as a result of which the present VAT Commissioner Mr. Prashant Goyal levied the said Form on traders having an annual turnover of more than 10 crores. The traders were having a view that across the Country generally the trucks are loaded with goods only after 9pm and it is almost not possible for Delhi dealer to obtain all transit details from respective transporters and submit the same online.For such an exercise the traders were required to sit even at late night hours. Therefore, implementation of Form T-2 was not practical.
On the other hand the CAIT expressed utmost surprise on maintaining silence by the Chief Minister who is also Finance Minister of Delhi on issue of CBI raid on Delhi VAT Department couple of days back. The CAIT said that although two days have passed but so far the Delhi Government has not issued any official statement about the nature of raid, the persons caught and the amount seized from them. CBI raid on a Government Department is a sensitive issue and no statement from the Government leads to many suspicions.
To raise its strong voice against other VAT problems and problems being created by all three Municipal Corporations of Delhi for traders, the CAIT is holding 50 Protest March in different markets of Delhi on forthcoming 30 July,2013.It has alleged that Authorities are not listening to the woes and sufferings of the traders. Either they should take immediate cognisance of the seriousness of the issue else the traders will be compelled to intensify their agitation in Delhi and if need be the issues would be clubbed with forthcoming Assembly elections in Delhi.

विहिप दिल्ली के मीडिया प्रमुख श्री विनोद बंसल ने बताया कि विश्व हिन्दू परिषद दिल्ली सरकार की दोगली नीति के परिणाम स्वरूप हुई इस घटना की तीव्र निंदा करते हुए मांग करती है कि दिल्ली की सरकार कम से कम पुलिस व प्रशासन को अपने सांप्रदायिक एजेण्डे का शिकार न होने दे। विहिप का कहना है कि हजारों की संख्या में मुस्लिम युवक जब उत्पात मचाएं, पुलिस पर हमला करें, मात बहिनों की इज्जत लूट राहगीरों को आतकित करें तो गृह मंत्रालय, उप-राज्यपाल कार्यालय तथा पुलिस मुख्यालय से जवानों को संयम बरतडांडा भी उठाने की मनाही कर दी जाती है जबकि चंद हिन्दू युवकों के इण्डिया गेट से भाग जाने पर भी पीछा करते हुए गोली से मार दिया जाता है। यह सरकार द्वारा प्रायोजित सांप्रदायिक नहीं तो और क्या है?विहिप ने घायल युवक के परिजनों से मिलने के बाद यह भी मांग की है कि युवक व उसके परिजनों की सुरक्षा सुनिश्चित की जाए।
