PM Theresa May new Cabinet

May spent her first full day as prime minister by appointing more politicians to her front bench, at the same time firing a number of well-known politicians, including Justice Secretary Michael Gove.
Leadsom pulled out of the race over the leadership of the governing Conservative Party on Monday, leaving May as the only contender..
Andrea Leadsom, former minister of state at the department of energy and climate change, was named as secretary of state for environment,food and rural affairs, giving her a major job in May’s Downing Street cabinet.
Boris Johnson has been made foreign secretary.
Philip Hammond who was made Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Justice Secretary is  Liz Truss. Education Secretary is  Justine Greening.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, caught up in a major wrangle with junior doctors over new working conditions in the NHS, has kept his job.
Chris Grayling, who ran May’s leadership campaign, has also won a cabinet role as Secretary of State for Transport.
Chancellor Philip Hammond ruled out an emergency budget. Hammond said there would be a normal autumn statement in the fall, and a regular budget next spring.Hammond said in a media interview that the British economy was entering a new phase because of the vote to leave the EU, admitting the referendum decision of June 23 had had a chilling short-term effect on the economy.”It has shaken confidence and caused many businesses to pause investment decisions that they were making,” said Hammond, adding the government now needed to send signals of reassurance about the future as quickly and as powerful as it can.
Downing Street tel-bells  have continued to ring all day with messages of congratulation for May, who has become the second female prime minister in British history. Among the phone calls received by May were ones from German ChancellorAngela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
May also had a 15 minutes telephone conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama. May’s spokeswoman said the prime minister “underlined her commitment to be a key partner with the United States.”

Sheila Dikshit Delhi Ex CM Triple Loser – UP CM Choice

Standard

INC Ought to RE-BOOT Its Economic Agenda, Engage Leaders Who
Understand India, Are Clean and Reliable. INC Should Discard
Parasites, Boneless Leaders & Casual Politician.
David Cameron or Bernie Sanders smilingly resigned as PM and
Presidential Candidate in favor of the winners in elections
‘Glorifying Democratic Traditions’.
India it is entirely different – losers cook up Excuses for the
Defeat. First they blame ‘Winner of Buying Voters’, Second they blame
‘State Machinery Was Biased’, Third excuse they give is ‘Caste &
Communal Equation Was Not in Their Favor’ and Fourth is the ‘News
Media that Promoted other candidate’.
Most often it is not Economic Issues and Public Concerns but
‘Astrologers’ who advice politicians and TANTRICS who manage GODS for
their clients.
Indian Politicians Never Admit [After Losing] to Their Incompetence,
Arrogance, Corruption, Poor Service & DISCONNECT with their Voters.
Sheila Dikshit as CM for 15 years caused maximum harm to INC due to
her Gross Incompetence & Corrupt Rule. She won in 1998 and 2003
because of infighting in BJP in Delhi and poor economic performance in
India.
Her record win in 2008 was 100% credited to PM Dr. Manmohan Singh – at
time GDP growth rate was almost 10% and Bank Deposit growth rate was
23% to 24%. It was DREAM RUN for India that may never be repeated
again and then Opposition Ganged to Defeat Dr. Manmohan Singh’s
government in last year of first five year term when Elections were
due anyway. She had no IDEA OF CORRUPTION & LOOT in Delhi.
Delhi 2013 – INC 15% – AAP 40.7%, BJP 45%
Sheila Dikshit led Delhi to Worst Imaginable Loss in 2013 – from 61%
Vote Share in 2008 to 15.22% votes share and to just 8 seats out of 70
behind AAP with 28 Seats and BJP leading with 32 seats.
After Shameless Loss – she was advised by some Astrologer that she
could be Enjoying Another BIG position and was appointed Governor of
Kerala on March11, 201 exactly 74 days after handing over to Arvind
Kejriwal – As If Her BAD Period is over.
Just after two months INC lost National Elections–LOK SABHA 2014 by
bigger margin. BJP won all 7 seats polled 46.63%, AAP – 33.08% and INC
– 15.22%.
Lok Sabha 2014 INC Kapil Sibal polled 17.94% votes, JP Agarwal –
16.3%, Sandeep Dikshit [Son Of Sheila Dikshit] – 16.98%, Ajay Makan –
18.85%, Krishna Tirath – 11.61%, Mahabal Mishra – 14.33%, Ramesh Kumar
– 11.35%%
Even after such a Pathetic Performance – Sheila Dikshit didn’t accept
moral defeat second time in Six Months – Continued as Governor of
Kerala – she was eased out.
Delhi 2015 – INC Vote Share Down to 9.7% from
15.22% in 2014, and 61% in 2008.
When Rajdeep Sardesai asked ‘—You had retired from Politics – She
said– ‘I HAD RETIRED FROM DELHI POLITICS ONLY – Not from Rest of
India.’
WE ARE GIVEN TO UNDERSTAND THAT INC HAD GIVEN UP SECULARISM,
MINORITIES & PRO-POOR AGENDA IN FAVOR OF CASTE ENGINEERING.
She is neither Sacrificial Lamb nor Symbol of Governance But
Corruption Mismanagement & Public Exploitation.
1.  Loot & Exploitation by DISCOMS – in 2001 T&D Losses were 40% when
base tariff was Rs.1/Unit but in July 2002 or 15 months later T&D
Losses were 50% at Rs.1.80/Unit. THIS IS THE BIGGEST LOOT.
2.  Bus service, Public Services, Education, Healthcare, Transport,
WATER, SEWAGE & DRAINAGE situation Worsened, Garbage Heaps Became
MOUNTAINS, Law & Order situation worsened, Unprecedented Price Rise of
Essential Commodities.
3. She silently WATCHED people being Looted By BSES Goons, Recovery
Agents of Private Companies, ELECTRICITY BILLS Going Up Five-Six Fold
– A Consumer who was expected to pay Rs.1200 per month was EXTORTED to
pay Rs.5,00,000/- Fabricating DAE Cases.
‘INC Popularity NOSE DIVED in 2015 to 9.7% in Delhi State Elections
When INC couldn’t Win A Single Seat, from 15.22% in Lok Sabha 2014. It
Was Worst Performance for Oldest Political Party that led Freedom
Struggle.
INC Party Lost 334 Deposits in 2002, 332 in 2007, 240 in 2012 in UP

Trump is pulling together an operation
I’ve been digging into the numbers and keeping an eye on where we’re at, Naresh.
So here’s the lay of the land: Trump raised $51 million in June (after he raised only $3 million in May) — a staggering improvement. The Republican convention is next week, which will mean another huge influx of cash for Trump as he formally accepts the nomination. He’s hiring new staff, and he could pick his running mate any minute now. Their operation is pulling together faster and more efficiently than seemed possible just a few weeks ago.
It’s time for us to step up as well. We have the best team of supporters behind us, but Trump is gaining ground, and as of right now, we’re only 16% toward our July fundraising goal — a number we have to hit in order to keep building our campaign in all 50 states. There’s just no guarantee that we’ll hit that goal.
We’re counting on you, Naresh. Our budget and strategy depends on you stepping up over the next few weeks — the sooner, the better.

Launch of the RI Communication campaign by Ministry of Health

Greetings

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare with strong support from UNICEF, today launched a comprehensive and holistic 360 degree communication campaign to enhance full immunization rates and support the successful Mission Indradhanush across the country. The launch of the campaign happened during an event organized by the MoHFW to celebrate the country’s elimination of MNT and Yaws as well. Another great achievement for India, following the eradication of Polio. But also even more reason to vigorously continue our support to GoI to ensure full coverage of routine immunization for all children will be achieved!

UNICEF is very pleased to also announce that Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, UNICEF goodwill ambassador who has been supporting the polio eradication campaign for years has agreed to wholeheartedly support this campaign!


This RI communication campaign was conceptualized basis the findings from a formative research carried out by UNICEF last year. The survey highlighted that 1) fear of adverse effects following immunization, and 2) low awareness around benefits of full immunization and where to go for vaccination, are important reasons for children being missed out. The campaign was conceptualized and developed in a strong team effort between Health, C4D, Polio and A&C teams, in close coordination with MoHFW.

The multi-media campaign is designed to reinforce the message of complete immunization through the tag line (Paanch Saal, Saat Baar). This indicates the importance of seven visits for immunisation , during the first five years of life.

The  open files of the communication kit which consists of a wide range of mass media and IPC material will be uploaded on the website. The ministry will also initiate the airing of the PSAs in the coming weeks.
