Clamour for seats grows in Cong, Sharief replaced by Pu Sangliana?

BANGALORE, MARCH 25: It is a party which is more than a century old and has too many ‘heavy weights’. And, naturally the high command is under too much pressure to accommodate every senior leader’s wish list while choosing candidates for the Lok Sabha constituencies.

Congress sources said a good number of senior leaders have been trying to get their names included or trying to get their followers’ name included in the list which has to get the final approval by Sonia Gandhi.

The new names which have been reportedly included over the last few days are – Arathi Krishna, Community Development Officer, US Embassy, Washington for Udupi-Chikmagalur, Jayaprakash Hegde, former minister for Udupi-Chikmagalur, Prof Rajiv Gowda (Bangalore South), former minister Margret Alva (Karwar), Kodandaramaiah (Tumkur), Jayaram Reddy, a realtor, K C Ramamurthy, former IPS officer, Vasanti Shivanna, Prof B K Chandrashekar, Ramesh Kumar and T V Maruthi (all for Bangalore South).

Sources said that former CM Veerappa Moily’s name has been included in the panel of names for both Chikkaballapur and Mangalore constituencies, Vinay Kumar Sorake (Udupi-Chikmagalur), C K Jaffer Sharief has been reportedly replaced by H T Sangliana for Bangalore Central.

Party sources said if Moily contests from Chikkaballapur, the JD(S) will field Bhavani, wife of H D Revanna. But the JD(S) has been denying any such move. “Some of the seniors are just using their clout to include their names or their associates’ names, in the list. The list had been approved by the State poll panel,” a senior leader said.

KNO salutes students on protest anniversary

TUITHRAPHAI, MARCH 24: Marking the second anniversary of the 'Kuki Students' Uprising' in New Delhi, the armed outfit Kuki National Organisation today said the organization saluted all the student organizations and specially the '154 brave students who were dumped inside the Tihar Jail' for demonstrating their solidarity towards the cause and sufferings of the Kukis.

"On this historic day, the 23rd March 2007, more than 800 Kuki Students in Delhi & NCR along with other students' organization surrendered their career, time and pure blood to dissent the legacy of British Imperialist towards the Kukis propagated by the Manipur and Central Govt of India," reads the KNO communique signed by Lenin H Kuki, Secy Info & Pub.

The uprising according to the outfit was evoked by the raping of 20 Hmar-Kuki women at Parbung (Inpui note: Should be Lungthulien Village inplace of Parbung) besides maiming many Kukis by planting landmines and IEDs by the UNLF.

They also abducted in collaboration with the military Junta of Myanmar more than 700 innocent Kukis from Chandel district including aged, infants and pregnant women on the night of 13 March, 2007, it further contended.

The students who marched towards the Indian Parliament on this fateful day were provoked by these indecent and barbarous acts.

They were meted with defamatory words, molested, lathi charged, hurled with canons and tear gas and firing by Delhi Police, alleged the statement.

Fight for B’lore Central: Sharief keeps Cong guessing

BANGALORE,MARCH 21: Senior Congressman C K Jaffer Sharief, it looks, knows the art of being in news during elections. On Saturday, the rumour mill worked overtime saying that Sharief may quit the Congress to join the BSP or the JD(S).

The rumour-mongers said Sharief, who has sought ticket to contest from Bangalore Central, is planning to join the BSP. And, in all probability, he would contest the poll under the ‘elephant’ symbol.

Another source said that JD(S) leader H D Deve Gowda met Sharief between 1 pm and 3.15 pm to request him to join the JD(S).

A source in the Congress said Oscar Fernandes is not for fielding Sharief because H T Sangliana has sought ticket to contest from Bangalore Central.

Last Friday, a group of minority community leaders met Sonia Gandhi at Delhi. “Iqbal Saradagi, Rehman Khan and Jaffer Sharief were part of the group. Sharief had earlier told Sonia that he will not contest the polls.

In contrast, he tried to seek ticket which left the Madam infuriated. It seems the party has promised Sangliana a ticket,” a Congress leader said.Another source said that the high command, realising that Sharief may quit the Congress, has sent a team of leaders to pacify him and retain him in the party. When contacted, Sharief spiked the rumours by saying, “I am a Congressman and I will contest from Bangalore Central.” Asked whether he met Gowda this afternoon, he replied in the negative while saying Gowda is a good friend of him and both keep meeting each other.

When asked whether he has a chance to get ticket with Sangliana being a strong contender, Sharief said, “How can Sangliana be considered as a strong contender? I lost the seat last time with just 16,000 votes. I had represented the constituency for 35 years. I have not sought ticket from any other party. The BSP has not approached me.” Asked whether he would cross over to other party if the Congress denies him ticket, he said he would cross the bridge when he comes to it.

Deccan Chronicle quoting senior Congress leader in New Delhi reports that Pu HT Sangliana is the undisputed candicate for Bangalore Central constituency. The party will not change its commitments made to Sangliana for having voted for the N-deal, the Congress leader was quoted as saying.

Congress list for Karnataka is likely to be announced on Monday (March 23) when party chief Sonia Gandhi will arrive in the state for campaign.

Jiribam goes to the drain under the gambling craze

IMPHAL, MARCH 20: Teer, a form of gambling which originated in Meghalaya has become a new found craze of the people of Jiribam sub-division.

People here have been literally hooked to the gambling game that many denizens have forgotten their chores and other important activities of life.

If one observes, groups of people will be seen talking to each other at tea stalls in the morning talking about their dreams of the previous night.

They believe that their dreams give them some secret message or hint about the number of tickets which may win prizes next day.

Results of this gambling are given twice in a day much to the delight and anguish of the gamblers.

The numerical game which starts with digits 00 to 99 is played twice in a day as first round and second round.

A winning ticket that costs Re one can fetch a prize of Rs 80 in the first round draw.

The second round draw can fetch Rs 70 from the ticket of same price.

There is another jackpot round called “Forecast” in which a lucky person can win Rs 2000 by a ticket of Re one when numbers of both rounds match with the winning ticket.

However, the new found craze has become a sort of scourge with attention of the people focused on this gambling.

Even Govt employees including teachers have fallen prey to this game of lottery.

One would observe groups of Government employees engage in animated talks about the game while paying little or no attention to their responsibilities and duties.

One can also find enthusiasts of this game thronging some shops/kiosks where books that interpret books are sold.

One individual, obviously addicted to this game, said on condition of anonymity, that if he saw a dead person in his dream, he would go for ticket having number 00 (double zero).

If he saw a male he would go for No 6 and No 5 in case he saw a female.

Nowadays, there is nothing called bad omens or bad dreams as everything one saw in the dream can be interpreted into winning numbers in this game of gambling, he said.

n Angam Kuki, an agent of the gambling game, said that he could earn at least Rs 1000 per day.

Sometimes, the daily earning from selling tickets went up to Rs 5000. Another agent identified as S Roy said that Rs 4000 to 5000 could be earned on a good day.

But Sunday is most dull and disliked by every body as there is no draw of Teer at Shillong on Sunday.

But on the other side, one T Hmar hooked to the game, disclosed that she has sold off some of her belongings to keep in touch with the gambling.

“Even though I have lost, I cannot resist the temptation of this gambling game’, Hmar confided.

Taking serious note of the social menace caused by this gambling game, a social activist said that it is high time for the law enforcing agency to curb the current trend of gambling.
