[New Delhi] President Not to Attend Sri Sri’s Cultural Fest,”NGT Eclipses Art Of Living Spiritual Guru Sri Sri Ravi Shanker
Had Earlier Supported Narendra Modi During Lok Sabha Elections
President had earlier agreed to attend the valedictory ceremony on Sunday.
President Pranab Mukherjee will not attend a festival being organised by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living in the wake of the controversy over holding the three-day cultural function on the Yamuna flood plains beginning this Friday.
“The President cannot attend the function due to unavoidable circumstances,” an official of the Rashtrapati Bhavan said
President Mukherjee had earlier agreed to attend the valedictory ceremony on Sunday.
While the organisers expect lakhs of people to attend the function, concerns have been raised by experts about the likely damage to the environment caused by holding it on the flood plains of the already polluted river in east Delhi.
The Art of Living foundation, which is organising the function, will have yoga + meditation sessions , peace prayers by Sanskrit scholars and traditional cultural performances from around the world.
The National Green Tribunal, which looks after the environmental issues, is hearing a petition which has claimed the organisers will release ‘enzymes’ into 17 drains that flow into the Yamuna for cleaning the river. A judgement is expected tomorrow.
The three-day event will be held from March 11-13 on the west bank of Yamuna to celebrate 35 years of The Art of Living foundation.
The petitioner Alleged “This proposed activity would be in blatant violation of the provisions of the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, and the Biological Diversity Act, 2002, since it is, basically, introducing foreign elements into the river, without any scientific study or information,”
Earlier, the green panel had issued notices to the Delhi government, Delhi Development Authority and Art of Living Foundation on another plea seeking stoppage of ongoing construction work on the flood plains.
It had also constituted an expert committee headed by Water Resources Secretary Shashi Shekhar to inspect the site of the proposed festival.

Toll Collecting Firm Refuses To Collect”ECC”From Trucks&Moves To Top Court

[New Delhi]Toll Collecting Firm Refuses To Collect”Environment Compensation Charge”From Trucks And Moves SC
SMYR Consortium LLP, which has been levying toll on behalf of MCD from commercial vehicles entering Delhi, today moved the Supreme Court expressing its inability to also collect the court-mandated ‘Environment Compensation Charge’ (ECC) from such vehicles.
The petition was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench comprising Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra which said that it would hear it.
The plea of SMYR Consortium, which has a toll-collection pact with MCD, assumes significance as the apex court’s direction to levy Rs 700 and Rs 1,300 ECC will come into effect from November 1 and would remain operational for a period of four months till February 29, 2016 on “experimental basis”.
The Consortium has alleged that the levy of court-mandated ECC is beyond the terms of agreement entered into between it and the civic body.
The court had imposed the ‘Environment Compensation Charge’ on commercial vehicles entering Delhi, in addition to the toll tax, from November 1 for four months on a trial basis, in a bid to check high pollution levels in the city.
It had directed the Delhi Government to issue appropriate notification in this regard.
The bench, however had said that passenger buses, vehicles carrying essential commodities, food articles and ambulances would be exempted from paying the ‘environment compensation charge’.
Taking note of Centre for Science and Environment study that about 23 per cent of the commercial vehicles and 40-60 per cent of the heavy trucks entering the city were not destined for Delhi, the court had said it was necessary to impose the charges, along with the MCD toll, to equalize the difference in cost in travelling through alternative routes.

“AAP”Govt Lodged FIR against Surrogate Advertising By a Tobacco Company

[New Delhi]”AAP”Govt Lodged FIR against Surrogate Advertising By a Tobacco Company
An FIR has been lodged against a tobacco company for alleged surrogate advertisements of its gutka and tobacco products on TV and radio.
This FIR was lodged last week on the complaint of Tobacco Control Cell of Delhi government.
“We sent a strict compliance notice under Section 5 of COTPA 2003 to the company on July 24 to immediately stop the surrogate advertisements of its ‘pan masala’ which is being aired on TV and radio for some time.
“But the company has failed to comply with the notice and therefore we have lodged FIR against the company at Deputy Commissioner of Police (East Delhi) for appropriate action,” Dr S K Arora, Additional Director of Health, Delhi government said.
In the recent past, Delhi government had removed similar advertisements on a big hoarding at Surajmal Vihar in East Delhi and from Delhi Metro coaches.
As per Section 5 of COTPA 2003, all kinds of advertisements of tobacco products direct as well as indirect are banned in India.
Delhi government’s initiative to ban chewable tobacco products is pending and will come up for hearing in the High Court tomorrow.
Tobacco products account for 9 to 10 lakh deaths annually in India.
In Delhi, the major problem is the smoking form of tobacco as compared to the rest of India where chewable tobacco products are the major culprits.
India currently has 275 million tobacco users and its consumption is responsible for half of all the cancers in men and a quarter of all cancers in women.

BJP Does a Hattrick in Delhi Mayoral Polls

[New Delhi]BJP does a hattrick in mayoral polls
After its municipal triumphs in South and East corporations, BJP today clinched the posts of Mayor and Deputy Mayor of North Delhi as well, thus ending its phenomenal run in the mayoral polls on an all-win note.
All three civic bodies have been BJP-led for past several years and the party had swept the mayoral polls last year too.
[1]In North Delhi Municipal Corporation, BJP candidate Ravinder Gupta today defeated Congress rival Harsh Sharma by a margin of 41 votes, the highest victory margin for the post, among the three elections.While Gupta polled 67 votes, Sharma could only get 26.
Out of the total of 95 votes, two were declared invalid, an NDMC official said.
[2]On April 24, BJP’s veteran leader in South RPT South Delhi Municipal Corporation Subhash Arya trounced Congress councillor and former Mayor Farhad Suri by a gap of 19 votes.
The winning margin was doubled in the Deputy Mayor polls in the SDMC, as BJP’s winning candidate Kuldeep Solanki bagged 69 votes while Congress’ Indu could get just 31, with the big margin fuelling speculation of “cross-voting”.
71-year-old Arya, currently the chairman of SDMC’s standing committee, polled 60 votes, while Suri, currently the Leader of the Opposition received 41.
Last year’s SDMC mayoral polls had seen Congress losing to BJP by a solitary margin, unlike the easy victory this time for the ruling party.
[3]BJP continued its mayoral triumph in East Delhi Municipal Corporation yesterday, with its candidate Harshdeep Malhotra defeating Congress rival Rekha Rani by a margin of 17 votes.
While Malhotra polled 40 votes, Rani could only get 23.
Out of the total of 64 votes, one was declared invalid.
And, while area MPs from BJP and Congress queued up to cast their votes in their respective corporation, all AAP MLAs chose to stay away from the polls.
