I don’t remember any other chances for them, but we didn’t create in the first 45 minutes.”

New Delhi: Hitting out at Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri for his “anti-Delhi” policies, the Aam Aadmi Party Wednesday said a person who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister is now venturing into the arena of electoral political analysis. Challenging Puri for an open debate, the AAP said it we will expose the “real face” of BJP and the Union Minister as well as question his anti-Delhi policies in the next seven days. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder The comments by the AAP comes a day after Puri reportedly slammed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for becoming “desperate” for an alliance. AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said Puri need not worry about the Aam Aadmi Party, but rather tell the people of Delhi about his “anti-Delhi approach”. “For next seven days, we will expose the real face of BJP and Mr Puri and question his anti-Delhi policies. We challenge him for a open debate. New political wisdom has dawned on BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh Hardeep Singh Puri, who was made a minister of state in the Narendra Modi government, 18 months back. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings “Puri, who has nothing worthwhile to show in his performance as a minister, is now venturing into the new arena of electoral political analysis,” Bharadwaj said in a statement. Bharadwaj said it is beyond “any reasonable understanding in which capacity Puri is giving his expert comments on the political situation of Delhi, and why is he so worried about the AAP?” The AAP also asked Puri why did the BJP central government’s nominees on the Delhi Metro Board support the “unjustified” Metro fare hike? “What were the instructions of your ministry to the central government nominees on the Metro Board about the Metro fare hike? Why has the Narendra Modi government stalled approval to three routes of Delhi Metro Phase-IV?” he said.
When US President Donald Trump tweeted their full recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights, “a current of surprise and expectation sizzled through the state department press corps”, as a BBC correspondent on a Jerusalem tour following US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo put it. It is said that the welcome surprise to Netanyahu was more in the timing than in substance. The intention that came to highlight through the tweet had been under consideration for quite some time, only the Israelis now pushed it with greater vigour. Of critical security and strategic importance, the Golan Heights is pivotal to stability in the region. For decades, most of the world (and previous US establishments) have rejected Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights which was seized from Syria in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. According to the UN charter, essentially, you can’t keep land that you capture, you have to negotiate its fate. Trump’s tweeted announcement has overturned this convention. This very grave move has implications that go beyond the bilateral dynamics of USA and Israel. Endorsing capture of a territory is potentially setting a dangerous trend to exercise military arbitration by a more powerful state. The regions that promptly come to mind at this are: on the global stage, Russia’s annexation of Crimea; in the Asian context, Tibet; and regarding India, PoK, given that Pakistan was USA’s baby not too long ago. Trump’s special mention of strategic and security reasons point out only too clearly to Iran, coming in the wake of the understanding that Iran is using Syria as a base to target Israel and the Golan Heights being the front line. Also, given that Israel already has a tight grip on the region militarily, the articulation of the status and a formal declaration of it make little difference on the ground. Hence, the next most obvious reason for this move has to be the election in Israel due on April 9, and something to count for Netanyahu, who will be making a visit to White House in the coming week. The situation is such that Israel strikes routinely at Iranian targets in Syria, carefully negotiating the situation with Russia, which provides crucial military backing to the Syrian state, a delicate balance indeed. With a civil war-wrecked Syria and a US sanctions-crippled Iran, Israel is in a position to assert claims over the region additionally with the support from White House. This is clearly a mechanism to violate territorial integrity and institutionalise regional instability. European leaders have not taken very kindly to this bilateral bonhomie at the cost of a suffering region. And rightly so. If recognition was so easy to give away, such arbitration raises very pertinent questions about Tibet, Kashmir, and Crimea. All it takes is the whim of a powerful nation.

The results showed that millennials in the country are increasingly opting towards a healthier lifestyle, with 95 per cent respondents indulging in at least one fitness activity – running, jogging or walking. For the study, over 2,200 men and women, between the age group of 18-35 years, were surveyed across nine cities in the country. Among all, Kolkata scored the highest score in fitness.

Jim Tressel (99-21) will be going for his 100th win as head football coach at Ohio State as the No. 2 Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0) take on Indiana (3-1, 0-1) Saturday in Ohio Stadium. What does the potential accomplishment mean to Tressel? “I guess I’m getting old,” Tressel said. “If you stick around long enough, you’re going to get some of those milestones.” Despite Tressel’s downplay, the win would be historic. Tressel would join Woody Hayes (205) and John Cooper (111) as the only coaches to top the 100 mark in wins as OSU head coaches. More noteworthy is how quickly Tressel might reach the plateau. “Woody got it his 144th game, Cooper his 138th game, and if Jim gets it Saturday, it will be his 121st game. That’s really something,” OSU football historian Jack Park said. Tressel has a chance of achieving another record. “If Ohio State wins every game the rest of the year and wins its postseason game, (Tressel) will have the highest winning percentage of any coach in the history of the Big Ten Conference that has coached in the conference at least 10 years,” Park said. Tressel’s success at OSU should come as no surprise considering what he accomplished at Youngstown State from 1986-2000. Tressel compiled a 135-57-2 record and won four national titles. “A lot of the things they are doing at Ohio State now are things they were doing at Youngstown State,” said Steve Helwagen, Bucknuts.com managing editor. “It’s just the Tressel form. It’s been amazing the success he’s had.”
