Goa police:Complainant before a magistrate & summons Tarun Tejpal

Tehelka case: Goa police issue summons to Tarun Tejpal
A political build up is on rise in disguise of various stories which are building around Tarun the media personality which reflects the cozy coterie and is third biggest clash of political titan.
Coalition politics will give rise to various wagering pacts and understanding and its result however will be that of ‘Cash for vote’ scam. But the ego ride could be tough days for media icon.
Let us ask ourselves are we trying to do self introspection and let these sensational stories in the edifice of Savior laws are of extreme steps. Lots of contemplation may not get us to some results  as the saying goes on everything is fair in game of love and war. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.Masses needs the fertile brain and professionals to lend their mind in constructive program-me rather than  creating sensation for smaller ends.
Sushma Swaraj alleging, Congress party was shielding Tejpal. “Union Cabinet Minister who is the founder and patron of Tehelka is shielding Tarun Tejpal,” she tweeted, refraining from naming the minister. Sibal has clarified that he has nothing to do with the publication.
Goa Police today recorded the statement of the complainant before a magistrate in the sexual assault case against Tehelka Founder-Editor Tarun Tejpal. Police sources said  that they will oppose Tejpal’s anticipatory bail application in the Delhi High Court.
Tehelka Managing Editor Shoma Chaudhury’s name could be added to the FIR against Tehelka Founder-Editor Tarun Tejpal for trying to suppress the sexual harassment complaint, say reported in e channel.
Goa Police lands in Mumbai to record the woman’s statement where she reportedly corroborated the details in the FIR filed by the police.
The Goa police on Wednesday issued summons to Tehelka Editor Tarun Tejpal, accused of sexually assaulting his junior colleague.
A senior police official confirmed that Tejpal has been issued summons to remain present before the investigating officer.He, however, refused to mention whether the accused has been given any date or time to present himself before the investigating authority.
The Goa crime branch is investigating the complaint against Tejpal by a woman journalist.
The police official also said the victim will be called to record her statement before a magistrate.
“She has been fully cooperating with the police and her statement is very crucial for the case,” the official said.
Investigating Officer Sunita Sawant has already met the victim in Mumbai and recorded her statement on Tuesday.

Centre to Support Arunachal Pradesh

Centre to Support Arunachal Pradesh for fast Agricultural Growth 
Shri Pawar Lays Foundation of Pasighat Agriculture College 
Agriculture Minister, Shri Sharad Pawar, today offered the Central Government’s full support for fast growth in all areas of agriculture and food processing in Arunachal Pradesh. 
He made the offer while laying the foundation stone of the State’s first agriculture college and inaugurated a krishi mela at Pasighat today. 
The Minister appreciated the recent initiatives taken by the State Government towards fast growth of agriculture, rice procurement, new plantations, export of fruits, etc. He expressed the hope that the state will be able to exploit its vast potential in horticulture and floriculture. 
Giving the details of the support given by Agriculture and Food Processing Industries Ministries to the State, the Minister said : “This year we have allocated more than 15 Cr for NFSM, 32 Cr for RKVY and 48 Cr for Horticulture Mission. I am extremely liberal while supporting this state and has told my officers that if state is ready to absorb more funds, we should readily provide the same. We also appreciated that some areas of Arunachal Pradesh can produce oil palm and hence this year we included Arunachal Pradesh also under oil palm development scheme. I am also of the considered opinion that Arunachal has tremendous potential in bamboo development. The state has not yet used its fullest capacity to harness the benefit from the national bamboo mission. The state also needs to work on a mission mode on other plantation crops like rubber etc. 
“Farm produce are perishable in nature. In hilly terrain, it is difficult to bring them from production catchments to road or rail heads. Middleman exploits perishability to their advantage. In the absence of post-harvest management infrastructure, handling, packaging and transport, high production and productivity do not translate into higher net return to the growers, a disincentive to invest and achieve high productivity. Therefore, there is need to develop processes and equipments through which perishability can be reduced, marketable surplus can be transformed into value added products, which fetch high price, store longer and allow for sufficient time to market them. I understand that steps have been taken in this direction; however, lot is yet to be achieved. Ministry of Food Processing Industries would be always ready to help the state in developing the agro-processing sector. We would be very happy to help the state in building the cold chains, modern slaughter houses and many such processing units. Just in the last week my Ministry has sanctioned a grant of Rs.9 Cr for establishment of modern slaughter house in Itanagar. I would also ask our National Horticulture Board to explore possibility of running a special Horticulture Train between Tinsukiya to Delhi or Tinsukiya to Kolkota. “
