Kamal Haasan

Kamal Haasan will take out a rally from the house of late President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. About 10,000 people are expected to attend the rally.

The senior actor turned politician, Kamal Haasan will be launching his political party today in Madurai. He will also unfurl the flag of the party during this launch. According to reports, Kamal Haasan will take out a rally which will start from late President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s house in Rameshwaram and will conclude in Madurai, where Haasan will address the public as a party chief for the first time.

After the death of Late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha, political upheaval in the state destabilized the government. Post her death, the AIADMK, of which Jayalalitha remained a single power center, split into three factions. However, the two factions came together to form the government.

During the period of political turmoil, many actors expressed their wish to enter politics, including superstar Rajinikanth and actor Vijay, besides Kamal Haasan. However, Kamal Haasan will be the first among the three to launch his party. Recently, Kamal Haasan had met the Election Commission officials to register his party’s name and symbol.

According to some sources, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, and Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan are expected to mark their presence at the rally. Also, Haasan is expected to announce the key members of his party’s administration.

India

New Delhi | The recent international survey, which described India as the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the alleged high risk of sexual violence, was based on “perception” and “flawed methodology”, the Rajya Sabha was informed today.

Union minister of state for home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said the report was not based on any scientific survey but a poll of a statistically insignificant sample of persons and presents a distorted picture of the comparative state of women safety in different countries.

“The said polling survey has been rejected by the National Commission for Women as it is based on perception and flawed methodology. However, steps have been taken for increasing safety of women,” he said replying to a written question.

The survey by a British media organisation of about 550 experts on issues faced by women claimed last month that India was the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labour.

War-torn Afghanistan and Syria ranked second and third, respectively, followed by Somalia and Saudi Arabia.

New Delhi | The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government on Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the functioning of the state government is “completely paralysed” and it can’t order transfer or posting of officers despite the recent Constitution bench verdict on the administration of Delhi.

The bench of Justices AK Sikri and Navin Sinha said it knows everything and the matter will be taken on July 26 since it is not a regular bench.

Senior advocate P Chidambaram who was representing the Delhi government said, “Functioning of the government is completely paralysed. We cannot post officers, we cannot transfer officers despite the recent constitution bench verdict which has explained every aspect. These issues needs to be adjudicated at the earliest.”

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, who also appeared for the Delhi government, said officers are not willing to file an affidavit on this matter and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had therefore filed the affidavit. “I just wanted to clarify the situation.”

Earlier a five-judge Constitution bench including Chief Justice Dipak Misra recently stated broad parameters for the governance of the Delhi which had a constant power tussle between the Centre and Delhi government since the election of Aam Aadmi Party in 2014.
