Russia’s opposition leader has been barred from challenging Vladimir Putin in the presidential election next March.
The Central Electoral Commission on Monday ruled Alexei Navalny ineligible for running in the election because of a conviction on embezzlement charges in February. Navalny has dismissed the charges as fabrications.
In an online video message, Navalny says the election will feature only Putin and candidates the president has personally selected. Navalny urges his supporters to boycott the vote.
Navalny is a leading critic of Putin and anti-corruption activist. He is popular among younger Russians.
He called for demonstrations this March to protest alleged corruption in Putin’s administration. More than 10,000 people took part in the rallies.
Putin criticized Navalny earlier this month, saying that the opposition leader is trying to destabilize the country.
Calls to boycott the presidential election in Russia scheduled for March 2018 should be checked for compliance with legislation, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday. He was commenting on the stance of activist and blogger Aleksey Navalny, who was denied registration as a presidential candidate, TASS said. “Calls for a boycott should, of course, be thoroughly studied in terms of compliance or contradiction with our legislation,” Peskov said.

Badals using dirty tricks to capture Patna committee:
Badals’ moves driven by saffron agenda
S. Sarna Badals’ moves driven by saffron agendaNEW DELHI, Dec 27 — Out of power and relevance in political sphere, the Badals have put their dirty-tricks department on top gear to capture the management committee of Takht SriHarmandar Sahib Ji, Patna Sahib, SADD secretary-general Harvinder Singh Sarna has noted.”They are using every possible means, including pressure tactics of their allies in the ruling NDA, to dislodge Panthak representation from the Patna Sahib committee,” S. Sarna observed. He cited the role of Bihar’s Attorney-General who had the audacity to ask the bench presiding over the election case to push back the date of the next hearing.To our utter surprise,” we saw and heard an AG demanding a date of his choice from the justices in what was perhaps unprecedented in the history of Indian judiciary,” the SADDleader said.The AG, he revealed, asked the bench to post the next sitting for January 8.”We have no complaints against Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar. But we can very well understand the pressure he could have been under to order his state’s AG to ask for as specific date. This shows how desperate the Badals are to capture the Patna Sahib committee into their stranglehold,” S. Sarna said.The Jan 8 date, he added, was sought with an insidious aim to keep Panthak representation and monitoring away from any possible violation of Guru Maryada during the current gurpurab events at the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib.”The Badals are driven by the bigger saffron agenda. They are trying hard to undermine,belittle and wipe out every pro-Panth voice. But our faith in Guru Sahib is firm. We are confident justice will be delivered, sooner or later. The Panth will ultimately emerge victorious.

Delhi Metro could have been world’s best and most profitable, Lowest Cost Mass Transit in the world but for Gross Incompetence of DMRC. I would have ensured >>
Ø 50% to 100% more people using DMRC Trains –Minimum Fare of Rs.5 for 4 km.
Ø Reduced cost of Construction by 30% to 50%, Check in at Ground Level,
Ø Ensured up to 50% faster speeds. Inter-Connected Lines – Not Stopping at few Stations at peak time.
As per Annual Report DMRC Losses were just 4% or Rs.229 Cr on Revenue of Rs.5,388 Cr on March2017. There was absolutely no justification for Fare increase by 100%.
Urban Development Ministry is MILKING DMRC to fund Metro Projects in other parts of the country and Phase IV than Optimizing METRO Infra.
There are Four Lunatic Grade Blunders in DMRC Magenta Line –
1. It is MOST LUNATIC – New Lines to haveStandard Gauge Tracks [1.435m] but with Broad Gauge Coaches [1.676m]. Mangu Singh has ensured all Coaches of Similar Size Can’t beINTERCHANGED between BG & SG Lines and New Line Tracks can’t be LINKED with Existing Broad Gauge Lines.
Ø Interchanges of DMRC are 10-50 Times Bigger Costlier Than London Metro – Switching Lines likeConventional Railways would have ensuredEXTENDED Connectivity Reduce Journey time – Improved Convenience.
Ø There is Seasonal or Peak Hour or EmergencyRUSH, Trains could be deployed or diverted through alternate routes.
2. Very little investment was required toINTERCONNECT with Blue Line – Magenta line trains could extend to VAISHALI, and to Dadri Mainline Station. International Airport couldn’t be connected to Mainline Railway avoiding New Delhi station as well Ghaziabad, saving Two Hours.
3. Magenta Line has New Terminal Station But No ISBT – But services to UP shall be available fromSarai Kale Khan.
4. Instead of STANDARDIZATION INDIGENOUS TECHNOLOGY for entire system to reduce Cost of Infra to Rs.200 Cr Per Km – Phase-IV shall cost Rs.500 Cr Per Km DMRC Has Introduced New Technology for Every Phase
DMRC Phase IV is 50%, Rs.25,000 Cr Scam or Lunatics.
