Indian is yet to win a title on the ATP World Tour this season but he has two runners-up finishes — Winston-Salem and St Petersburg (With inputs from PTI) Nearly two-and-a-half years ago in June 2014 I received the honour to serve as a Member of the the Rajya Sabha courtesy the Janata Dal (U) and its leader Nitish Kumar I often see photographs of former Members and Chairmen including of Dr S Radhakrishnan Dr Zakir Husain R Venkatraman and others on the walls of the hallowed corridors I try to identify the faces of Bhupesh Gupta Chandrashekhar Atal Bihari Vajpayee Pilu Modi Era Seziyan and many more whose enlightened informed and excellent interventions and debates left a sharp influence and probed our conscience during my younger days The ideological debates in Parliament inspired many of us to dream for the country and to stand for the values that had shaped independent India These photos on the walls of the Rajya Sabha from where emanates the power of democracy often haunt me It has been particularly difficult these last few days to get past those photosTill 1 December (15th day since the commencement of the Winter Session) no business has been allowed to occur in the House except on the first day when a good debate took place in the Rajya Sabha over demonetisation Regular disruptions chaos and high-pitched slogan shouting have resulted in complete pandemonium in the House The continuous ruckus usually leads to the suspension of the House proceedings and sadly it has become a regular feature I ask myself: is this the only alternative left to us to address the genuine grievances of the public the states and the nation I have witnessed the Chairman and Deputy Chairman trying their best to run the House smoothly and peacefully; yet a sense of helplessness persists — I must acknowledge the efforts of the Deputy Chairman Prof PJ Kurien He is often on his toes pleading with members to exercise calm and allow the House to function However members in the well pay no heed to his words I have great sympathy and respect for Prof Kurien and envy his patience calmness wit humour and above all his commitment to run the House The unabated slogan shouting disrupts normal activity and he is often forced to adjourn the House I introspect at such moments recalling that this is the Upper House of distinguished leaders and statesmen and valuable contributors to society In the Constituent Assembly debates the Rajya Sabha was envisioned as a House for reflective and evaluative reasoning detached from the ordinary mundane and routine engagements of everyday life N Gopalswami Ayyangar termed it as a House which may rein in the “passion of the moment” as reflective moment Several members of the Constituent Assembly favoured a second chamber as they believed that erudite members of this Rajya Sabha would be above the narrow and parochial political boundaries of the Lok Sabha These members of the Rajya Sabha would be able to view legislations more dispassionately and thus enhance the efficacy of the overall process of law making I am also reminded of Lok Nath Mishra who described this House as “a sobering House a reviewing House a House standing for quality and the members will be exercising their right to be heard on the merits of what they say for their sobriety and knowledge of special problems; quantity that is their number is not much of moment” M Ananthasayanam Ayyangar found this House to be a platform of reflective consideration: “the genius people who may have full play and it can make place for people who may not be able to win popular mandate” Dr Radhakrishnan stressed the significance of the RS and stated “There is a general impression that this House cannot make or unmake governments and therefore it is a superfluous body But there are functions which a revising chamber can fulfil fruitfully We are for the first time starting under the new parliamentary system with a Second Chamber in the Centre and we should try to do everything in our power to justify to the public of this country that a Second Chamber is essential to prevent hasty legislation We should discuss with dispassion and detachment proposals put before us” Its late chairman Krishan Kant in his foreword to the book Emergence of Second Chamber in India had foreseen the possibility of a stalemate that our current parliamentary system is facing He wrote “the majority-minority party equation in the Council of States (Rajya Sabha) changes at a much slower pace than in the Lok Sabha There may be occasions when a party enjoying a majority in both the Houses is reduced to a minority during an election in the Lower House but remains a majority in the Rajya Sabha Some experts argue that this position is an anomaly because it derogates from the theory of mandate which holds that popular mandate at any given time gives to the winning majority an untrammeled right to initiate legislations germane to that mandate The need to carry the opposition majority in the Upper House is by inference an anomalous provision There is the added danger that the Opposition in the Upper House can use its majority to embarrass the government of the day” Our great leaders in the past assured that during stalemates senior leaders of the political parties will engage in consensus building Have we failed Again I quote N Gopalaswami Ayyangar While moving the motion for a second chamber (RS) he said in the Constituent Assembly: “After all the question for us to consider is whether it performs any useful function The most that we expect the second chamber to do is perhaps to hold dignified debates on important issues and to delay legislations which might be the outcome of passions of the moment until the passions have subsided and calm consideration could be bestowed on the measures which will be before the legislature; and we shall take care to provide in the Constitution that whatever on any important matter particularly matters relating to finance there is a conflict between the House of the People and the Council of States it is the view of the House of the People that shall prevail Therefore what we may really achieve by the existence of this second chamber is only an instrument by which we delay action which might be hastily conceived and we also give an opportunity perhaps to seasoned people who may not be in the thickest of the political fray but who might be willing to participate in the debate with an amount of learning and importance which we do not ordinarily associate with a House of People" This is what our sagacious leaders our Constitution makers thought of the role of the RS It is the sacred duty of all members of this House to maintain and carry forward this distinguished legacy When I see the Deputy Chairman helplessly pleading with members and then adjourning the House time and again I stare at the Visitors Gallery asking myself how I would respond to public queries about these successive adjournments Our great leaders as the architects of the world’s largest democracy have taught us that dissent and disagreement are non-negotiable democratic values But even with our differences and dissent dialogue is essential without which people’s faith in the system can easily erode I entered this House with a dream to debate issues pertinent to our country Joblessness or the era of jobless growth is the biggest challenge that the country is facing today Since globalisation itself faces serious contestations I often ask myself whether our economic growth model has failed I am eager to hear the enlightened debates/views of this House in the same spirit that I heard the debate on the GST Bill in my view one of the best debates in RS so far – it debate was marked by eloquence knowledge and full participation of members above party lines and narrow partisan politics keeping in view the interest and future of the country Today I feel agitated about several vital issues which need to be looked into earnestly and dispassionately Many other members of the RS may share my views and sentiments For instance the most recent Indore-Patna rail accident must be discussed It is important to note that approximately 3000 railway bridges are more than 100 years old 32 of these 3000 have been classified as “distressed bridges” but their usage beyond their lifetime is not considered to be a serious issue Indian railway tracks are hugely congested; some of the sections are running either at 100 percent or above of its carrying capacity For example in the Mughalsarai-Ghaziabad section a train leaves the originating section every two minutes This high density of train movement not only highlights the superhuman efforts of the railway employees but also underscores the pathetic situation of our railway infrastructure The serious governance issues are not limited to railways alone but they have spread to the whole of our civil and defense transport and logistic infrastructure urban development defense preparedness law and order employment generation and to every other aspect of social economic and cultural lives of our citizens We have adopted this chalta hai or’jugaad approach and in the last few decades this attitude has landed us in a serious trap I am at a loss to comprehend why these questions do not emerge as the most pressing matters in our Parliamentary debates We must dig deep find the causes and suggest remedial measures It seems the whole infrastructure has collapsed Even the precarious financial position of the railways (a major part of their finances is taken up by salaries and pensions) needs to be debated thoroughly The situation on our borders after the surgical strikes against Pakistan needs to be discussed The attacks against our soldiers continue as unabated cross border terrorism poses grave threats to the country I feel pained and anguished when I read about how China has encircled us having established ports in Bangladesh Sri Lanka and Burma Tibet is yet to acquire autonomy and with each passing day it appears that its distinct cultural social religious identity is being subsumed within the dominant Han Chinese racial and cultural practices In recent times the Chinese army has decided to safeguard and operate the Gwadar port in Pakistan China and Pakistan have also launched a direct rail and sea freight service between Kunming and Karachi Russia is also warming up to Pakistan and US President elect Donald Trump has assured Nawaz Sharif of his cooperation and support China has extended its influence in Central and South East Asia These issues bother me and I am sure also agitate the minds of other members as well The modernisation of the army needs to be discussed; we must initiate large-scale and fundamental reforms to our administrative police and bureaucratic framework The working conditions of paramilitary forces need to be debated at length The tussle between the judiciary and executive has been on the rise in the recent past It is a serious confrontation that may well precipitate a constitutional crisis I have been equally disturbed when I see or read how our defence personnel guarding our borders are attacked and media headlines scream “lessons not learnt from past mistakes” The issue of climate change needs to be addressed Delhi’s pollution problem and air quality is a matter of grave concern The on-going developments at Nalanda University need to be discussed Representational image PTI The jailbreak in Nabha Punjab had been meticulously planned It was a high security jail from where the Khalistan Liberation Force chief was able to escape It is being alleged that there was a deal of Rs 50 lakh for making this jailbreak possible There is an urgent need to discuss all these serious issues and find long lasting solutions Next year will be the one that marks the centenary of the Champaran Satyagrah which gave a new direction to the anti-colonial struggle in India and an enduring political legacy to the world It is the duty of the government and the opposition as well to discuss how the country should commemorate this momentous occasion and revisit the ideals of the satyagrah Being a witness to such anarchic scenes in the House I recall my old friends who believed in the Naxal ideology and always had derogatory adjectives for our democratic system Those days we would debate for hours to convince them about the democratic virtues of our Parliamentary debates This is clearly a question of governance and efficiency This government was elected on the promise of providing an efficient and effective administration which is responsive to the aspirations of the country But time and again whenever there have been attacks there are headlines questioning the efficiency of the government Responsibility must be fixed This country has a great tradition of quality and moral leadership; resignations were tendered even for minor incidents by taking moral responsibility Do our Ministers introspect their utterancess roles efficiency and governing capacity We are familiar with the axiom that time and tide wait for nobody The world is changing at an unprecedented pace and there are multiple anxieties and insecurities If such serious issues are not debated even at a time when the duration of the Parliament session has been gradually shortened since Independence then what future do we promise to the younger generation We owe something to our great leaders who sacrificed their lives for this country and gave us this House so that our democratic traditions can remain vibrant and inspire the future generations I have been asking myself why a silent member like me (and there are many silent members in all parties in RS who adhere to rules and procedures and completely respect the words and instructions of the Chair) remains unheard How do we who do not rush to the well of the House navigate through this crisis restore our faith in the great parliamentary traditions of this country There is a demand now that the Prime Minister should sit through the discussions on demonetisation It was reminded by a senior Congress leader that when the 2G scam broke out in 2013 the same BJP wanted the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to remain present in the House during the entire debate There is a widely acknowledged saying that as you sow so shall you reap The BJP is facing the same past karmas But it is my view that the Congress has been a party of great leaders which include Jawaharlal Nehru Sardar Patel and many others known for their magnanimity and vision They would not have appreciated the current discourse and disruptions The Congress leaders often make us feel that they have the monopoly over Gandhi’s legacy Gandhi had once said that an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind It is a great opportunity for the Congress to offer a lesson on good parliamentary behavior to the BJP by allowing the House to run smoothly We must appreciate the PM’s position as the head of the government while demanding his continuous presence in the House as we desire It is possible that his presence is needed elsewhere than at the Parliament always However the PM should also find time at regular intervals to be present in the House when important issues are being debated There should be a full-fledged debate on demonetisation with a particular focus on black money benami properties bullion and gold real estate drugs and even prohibition It must be reiterated that there is a direct connection between the black money and the liquor and drug mafia More than 40 committees have been constituted in the past to deal with the problem of black money but without success The Indian bicameral parliamentary system may find comparable legislative set up around the world and it would be quite informative to compare the functioning of the Indian parliament with the systems abroad In the United Kingdom the members of parliament have a right to be heard without overwhelming background noise and unparliamentary language is not allowed In the British House of Commons when grave disorder breaks out the speaker has the power to suspend or to adjourn the sitting That power was exercised very few times and was enforced last time in 2004 In the House of Lords unworthy conduct by Members has hardly ever been reported In the entire history of the United States Congress 20 Members have been expelled: fifteen from the Senate and five from the House of Representatives All these expulsions have been triggered by political reasons treason charges or scandals hardly for bad behaviour or disrupting the Congressional procedures In the Australian Parliament the Speaker can direct a disorderly member to withdraw from the House for one hour However if a member fails to leave the Chamber immediately or continues to behave in a disorderly manner they may be named and the House can then suspend them I come from a party which draws from the legacy of Gandhi Lohia Jai Prakash and is presently headed by Nitish Kumar who has been in public life for the last four decades He has held many distinguished posts at the centre and has been the Chief Minister of Bihar for the last 11 years (except the tenure of Jitan Ram Majhi for a brief period) There is intra-party democracy in the JD (U) and Kumar gives opportunities to all its members to raise people’s concerns It may be worth mentioning that following his example none of the members from JD (U) has indulged in creating ruckus or pandemonium in either of the two houses of the parliament I ask myself every day before I head to the Rajya Sabha about what I would do in the House As an MP how do I repay the people for the privileges and facilities I enjoy if I am not able to raise their issues in the House Is it not an unnecessary and unacceptable burden on the exchequer if we are not able to raise the problems of the people in the House I can only hope that the great parliamentary traditions of this country are restored and as Members of this privileged House we recognise our responsibilities and accountability to the people of this great country (The author is a JD(U) member of Rajya Sabha Views expressed here are personal) Written by A Kameshwari | New Delhi | Published: July 12 2017 8:29 pm Suniel Shetty talks about Ahan Shetty and Athiya Shetty in an exclusive interview Related News Ever since the word nepotism coined in the industry every star from Karan Johar to Saif Ali Khan have spoken about how it is a normal procedure in the industry Now joining the conversation is Suniel Shetty whose daughter Athiya Shetty made her debut in 2015 while his son Ahan Shetty is all set to be the next heartthrob in the coming time However on being asked about this progression Suniel says the concept of nepotism has been blown out of context thanks to social media “Everybody has somebody in life not only in Bollywood but in any industry A politician will nurture his kids to be a politician A civil officer would want his kids to be in the same career because of respect security and the uniform A doctor would say ‘my career is the best’ So its natural They want their kids to be in the same field because they know all about it and have their comfort in that career Similarly for me acting was comfortable If they (Athiya and Ahan) would have chosen something else I would worry So this thing about actors kids getting into acting is something that is happening everywhere in the world and in every field Why question Bollywood This is happening because of the social media world We are living in the world where we see are happy if we get 100 likes on our picture or status but do not care if 100 people around us have respect for us Trolling talking crap I really don’t understand” said the actor who was present in Delhi to promote his Super Boxing League team Suniel Shetty in Delhi for Super Boxing League When questioned about what his tips were for his children Suniel said that this generation does not take tips but give tips however the one learning he has imbibed into his children is to remain fearless about Fridays “This generation gives you tips I am at a stage where I am scared of my parents because of respect and scared of my children too I am at a sandwich state So I learn from them They are my best friends It is a fast evolving period I am learning from them but I am still a dehaati when it comes to technology Suniel Shetty is co-owner of a team in the league The only bit I tell them is put your heart and soul into what you are doing work hard and never be afraid of theFriday as failure doesn’t mean you are out it means you’ve to work harder Choose wisely” Suniel Shetty is the co-owner of Bahubali Boxers which had its first match on July 9 Even though his team could not start their league campaign with a win it was just one Knock Out victory

PTI Carlo Tavecchio the president of the Italian FA famously said in September that “not qualifying would be an apocalypse” And last night at the San Siro eleven Norsemen dressed in blue and gold brought it upon them setting back the world clock by sixty years in the process A few years ago if someone had mooted the possibility of a World Cup without Italy and the Netherlands you would’ve been forgiven for laughing in their face These after all aretwo powerhouses of world football both ranked in the top 20 in the world and almost always knocking at the door of international glory But then this is perhaps how the apocalypse would always have arrived without much fanfare and noise slowly creeping up on the rest of us while we stood oblivious to its assault Italy failed to qualify for a World Cup after 60 years AFP Italy didn’t go to the World Cup in 1930 They didn’t qualify for the World Cup in 1958 — beaten that time by Northern Ireland in Belfast in a result that sent shockwaves through the small sporting world of the time And now they will not be at the World Cup in 2018 It is 20 years since Italy’s last appearance in a play-off for World Cup qualification In a twist of fate their opponents then were next summer’s hosts Russia The first leg of that tie was played in snow and sub zero temperatures and is remembered as the night a 19-year-old Gianluigi Buffon made his debut as a 32nd minute substitute for Gianluca Pagliuca Flash forward to the present and after 175 caps Buffon has come the full circle and has been cruelly forced to retire after their failure in a World Cup play-off Perhaps there was an element of misfortune here Italy were unfortunate to be drawn into a group with Spain when they might have got Romania or Wales They were unfortunate to have finished second in the group and then draw the most impressive of the non-seeded second place sidesin the play-off And then of course they will point to the individual moments of misfortune through the two legs that knocked them out: the elbow on Leonardo Bonucci in the first leg that might have earned Ola Toivonen a first-minute red card; the deflected Jakob Johansson shot that brought the only goal; the string of saves made by the Swedish keeper Robin Olsen; the two penalties they might have won in the second leg But in truth Sweden could’ve also had two penalties and for most of the second half on Monday Italy lost their shape and calm the two things the Azzurri pride themselves most over And the truth also is that this setback is a surprise but not a shock The Italian media has over the past week blamed the federation for not being smart enough to game the system as Romania Wales and Poland did to secure a better ranking (Italy are ranked 15 in the world) They have also laid into Gian Piero Ventura and his uninventive style of play that baffles viewers about his appointment Even on Monday with the game edging to a stalemate Ventura attempted to bring on Daniele de Rossi as a substitute to turn the game around De Rossi a defensive midfielder refused to warm up seeing like others did the absurdity of such an action Ventura also opted to not start with Lorenzo Insigne the top man for key passes this season across Europe’s top five leagues Italy had the lion’s share of possession but were struggling to break Sweden down while Insigne warmed the bench To talk about their failure looking at just their games against Sweden would be missing the bigger picture It wasn’t just that Italy finished behind Spain in the group stages it was also that they were hammered by them in Madrid In Paris last summer Antonio Conte’s Italy had pummeled Spain in the last 16 of the Euros and won 2-0 Two and half months later the sides met in Turin and drew 1-1 Then in September this year they met in Madrid and Spain humiliated Italy winning 3-0 when it could have been far more It was not just that game though They struggled to a 1-1 draw against FYR Macedonia in the group stages of qualification They scraped a 1-0 win over Israel at home Throw it back further and there have been draws in friendlies in the past five years against Haiti and Luxembourg Italy may have a point about the iniquities of the FIFA rankings but no side can expect much sympathy with that sort of results Assuming they qualify in 2022 Italy will head to Qatar having won only one match at a World Cup finals since they lifted the trophy in 2006 This is a failure that has been brewing for years The biggest issue by far though are the players There was a general consensus that Italy’s Euro 2016 squad was the weakest of its kind and it was only the tactical genius of Contethat dragged them to a quarter-final So it is no coincidence that last night’s starting XI contained six players over the age of 30; for the first leg in Stockholm the number was seven of which four were 33 or older This is an ageing side and that fact usualy points to a dearth of talent Players can never be directly replaced but in Italy it is almost always guaranteed that their defensive wall will keep resurrecting itself by way of Ra’s Al Ghul’s Lazarus pit Paolo Maldini Alessandro Nesta Fabio Canavarro Gianluca Zambrotta Franco Baresi have all at some point of time been replaced Georgio Chiellini Andrea Barzaghli and Bonucci look ageless but they are not And their replacements are nowhere to be found Up in midfield the losses of Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio have not been adequately filled over time although Marco Verratti’s suspension was a tougher blow than previously imagined There is something inherently wrong with the Italian system Gifted young players are not emerging in sufficient quantities or not being developed Germany France and England have all undergone awkward reassessments of their youth structures; Italy must undergo a similar reboot While we mourn Italian football’s shock fall from grace credit must also be given to Sweden The Swedes have over the course of World Cup qualification beaten France the Netherlands and now Italy to get to Russia Yesterday at the San Siro they did to Italy what Italy have for years done to others They built themselves a strong defensive wall filled it with structure and patience and wore their opponents down By the end the statistics made for absurd reading Italy had thrown everything at the Swedes and come away with nothing Perhaps there was noworse way for Italy to go out beaten at their own game looking older and wearier at it The Italian Job needs a serious reinvention Along with the herders,review?

vice-president is also walking a political tightrope File image of Donald Trump and Mike Pence AP The 58-year-old former governor of Indiana is currently the man closest to the US presidency: Either as Trump’s immediate successor should his term end prematurely or as his heir apparent in 2020 or 2024 elections depending on how many terms Trump serves As the troubles of his boss grow deeper by the day ensnared in a widening investigation into his campaign ties to Russia experts say the 48th US vice-president remains compelled to stand by his man: At least for now "Pence is in a very difficult position" Joel Goldstein an expert on the vice presidency at Saint Louis University School of Law said "A vice-president is expected to be loyal to the president but President Trump imposes a heavy burden on his subordinates by saying and doing things that often are hard to defend" The two men could hardly be more different: where Trump likes to blur ideological lines Pence is a committed Christian conservative as stiff and disciplined as his boss is exuberant and unpredictable While Trump tweets about a high-stakes health care bill it is Pence who has been shuttling between the White House and Congress in a behind-the-scenes effort to rescue the imperiled legislation In Trump’s turbulent Washington Pence is seen as the administration’s steadying force the "ax behind the glass you’re supposed to break in case of emergency" as The Daily Beast news website put it recently Hang on Pence offered a glimpse Wednesday of what it’s like on the Trump roller-coaster as number two to arguably the most controversial US leader in modern times "You need to keep your arms and legs in the ride at all times" he told student leaders at American University "Pull the roll bar down because you just got to hang on" Yet Pence has taken low-key steps that suggest he could be laying the groundwork for his political future In an unusual move two close advisors to Pence have founded a political action committee The New York Times reported He has also begun hosting Republican mega-donors at his Washington residence according to the daily Next president As federal and congressional investigators dig deeper into allegations that Trump’s camp colluded with Russia to tilt the 2016 election a handful of Democrats are now calling openly for the president to be impeached However remote the prospect of impeachment by the Republican-controlled Congress the Russia cloud stubbornly refuses to dissipate Should Trump eventually be forced from office Pence would become the 10th US vice-president to assume the presidency without being elected and the first since Gerald Ford succeeded Richard Nixon following the Watergate scandal in 1974 When Donald Trump Jr recently acknowledged that he and campaign aides met a Russian lawyer last year in hope of obtaining dirt on Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton Pence distanced himself from the snowballing scandal "He is not focused on stories about the campaign particularly stories about the time before he joined the ticket" said a statement from Pence’s office But the vice-president has not emerged entirely unscathed so far As head of Trump’s transition team he publicly backed Michael Flynn during the uproar about contacts with the Russian ambassador which cost the newly-minted national security advisor his job And having flatly denied any Trump campaign contacts with Russia Pence’s credibility is further rocked with each new revelation Losing credibility Pence’s defense will look increasingly questionable especially if Trump’s troubles worsen But it is survivable said Michael Munger director of the politics program at Duke University "Pence was probably not lying He was lied to and he took the party line and then kept his mouth shut when they cut him off at the knees" the professor said "He is losing credibility I suppose but he gets extra points for doing his job" Yet Pence’s close ties to the president — as recently as last month he said serving with Trump has been "the greatest privilege of my life" — may yet prove an albatross around his neck "None of the last seven vice-presidents have been so willing to be so sycophantic in their praise and have said so many significant things that later turned out to be untrue" the expert Goldstein said Striking the balance between loyalty to an embattled leader and avoiding getting caught up in scandal is a fierce challenge Pence has "juggled" well said Paul Beck of Ohio State University "But if this Russia controversy really gets the Trump administration

Express News Service | New Delhi | Published: March 20 2017 4:31 am Top News A survey of over 200 public toilets across the capital by NGO ActionAid India early in 2017 has revealed poor infrastructure dysfunctional toilets and a host of issues that affect the safety and security of women and differently-abled users “There isn’t a single woman I know who has never been in a situation where she had to use the toilet but was not able to because there either wasn’t a women’s toilet in the vicinity or it was too dirty to use” said Vinisha Shah a 20-year-old college student The South Delhi Municipal Corporation’s (SDMC) decision to allow general public to use toilets in restaurants in the vicinity for an option fee of up to Rs 5 may have angered restauranteurs but has made women like Shah very happy The SDMC has made it mandatory for all hotels and restaurants under its jurisdiction to let the general public use their toilets The recommendation to explore the possibility was made to the SDMC by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal Prominent places under the SDMC’s jurisdiction include Hauz Khas Village Saket and Shahpur Jat “I remember I was near Lodhi Road one day and had to use the toilet I went to the toilet complex there but the section for women was locked This infrastructure is wasted The toilets that are open are dirty and dingy” Shah said The survey conducted across 11 districts in the city in toilets primarily run by the Municipal Corporations of Delhi and the New Delhi Municipal Council has shown toilets with poor signages irregular cleaning of facilities and lack of running water The survey was part of an audit carried out in seven cities in India under the #wheretopee campaign and has shown that the capital’s toilets are not women friendly and have serious safety concerns Nearly 70 per cent women respondents said the toilets were not cleaned regularly 62 per cent said the flush did not function usually and 53 per cent said that running water was not available all the time A significant portion of toilets did not have availability of soap or handwashing facilities The ActionAid survey says that 55 per cent of toilets did not have any light bulbs and 51 per cent did not have light posts outside the complex More than 40 per cent of the toilets did not lock from inside and 28 per cent did not have toilet doors Further the toilets are not in keeping with the Union’s Government’s Swacch Bharat guidelines for differently-abled users Of the toilets surveyed 78 per cent did not have ramps and 75 per cent did not have any braille signages The survey also showed the prevalence of manual scavenging practice with nearly 38 per cent reporting that cleaning was done manually For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App

(Source: AP) Related News WHEN VIRAT Kohli & Co landed here straight from the Champions Trophy their priorities were pretty straightforward The opposition here for the ODIs was always going to be tepid and this was the perfect opportunity for India to build the base for the next big ICC event the 2019 World Cup Their run to the Champions Trophy final had been convincing but there were a few boxes that needed some ticking India still seemed to have a 9-5 conundrum and a weak West Indies outfit should have been the best opportunity for them to get some clarity on it That is exactly what Ajinkya Rahane did anyway by recording by far his best returns from an ODI series 336 runs at 6720 Though all those runs came as an opener Rahane is likely to have done enough to in all likelihood seal the No4 spot where he was immensely successful during the 2015 World Cup considering Kohli himself spoke about the right-hander’s flexibility But that apart the 3-1 series win was dominated more or less by the same players — Rahane Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli with the bat — and Kuldeep Yadav and Umesh Yadav with the ball And India leave the Caribbean isles with their 9-5 problem still pretty much in the air s A Trinidadian pocket dynamite turning the Sabina Park into his own private golf course perhaps will be the lasting image for India from their three-week three-island Caribbean sojourn And Evin Lewis delivered quite a few humbling parting licks to the Indian bowlers that they will find difficult to erase soon especially not during their Kingston-London-Dubai-Mumbai journey But India’s loss in the solitary T20 against a mighty West Indies team was also kind of an anti-climax India were always underdogs going into the match against a bunch of T20 behemoths who always seem to have a point to prove especially on those odd occasions that they don the West Indian garb Lewis’ century celebration was rather poignant as he threw away his helmet — much to Jeffrey Dujon’s chagrin in the commentary box — and the mood around Sabina at that moment could have been captured by a Twitter trend #IPL contract So apart from some seriously bruised egos the Indians wouldn’t be too fussed over the massive defeat on Sunday But they will however be vexed over not having managed to find a long-term fix to certain areas of concern in their line-up which will have to be fixed by the time the World Cup comes around We look at some of those under-a-cloud positions in the Indian line-up the options that they’ve already used and the ones that they have in waiting No5:Looking beyond the legend MS Dhoni has made this his own since the last World Cup having batted 18 innings at that number — nearly 60 per cent of the time — and his overall figures during that period are impressive He’s averaged 52 and scored at a strike rate of 8914 And if it weren’t for him getting on in years and more importantly the recent lull in terms of his customary big-hitting prowess there would have been no talk of No5 being a worry His 114-ball 54 was pulled up in many circles as being a major reason for India’s only loss in the ODI series while chasing a paltry 190 in Antigua There have been knocks of an older vintage in recent months — the century against England in Cuttack and a couple of cameos in the past month — but will Dhoni be the same force in two years’ time at 38 The others used at that spot have included Suresh Raina Manish Pandey and Ambati Rayudu If not for a last-minute injury Pandey should be the front-runner in case there is a further slide in Dhoni’s form Dinesh Karthik ended the tour on a high and cannot be ruled out either No 6 and 7: More of the same At the moment there shouldn’t be any question marks over Kedar Jadhav who’s made the position his since breaking into the team a couple of years ago and Hardik Pandya slotting in nicely at these positions An average of 7014 and a strike rate of 12275 are phenomenal numbers for Jadhav And earlier this year his match-winning century against England in Pune was arguably the most memorable breakout innings for a while Pandya meanwhile has proved to be the most influential seaming all-rounder in ODIs for India since Irfan Pathan Kohli though had put India’s delay in going for the jugular while setting totals to the lack of exposure Jadhav and Hardik Pandya at No7 have received in big-match situations even though he’s reiterated that they’re both fit and ready Jadhav faced only 26 balls at the Champions Trophy and India’s insistence on being rigid with their batting order in the Caribbean meant he faced only 46 here Pandya despite having finished the Champions Trophy in blistering fashion with that brutal 76 got to face only 26 balls So if anything in their cases it was a missed opportunity No 8: Up for grabs Only three months ago Ravindra Jadeja was on top of the world He’d finished the Tests against Australia as the No1 ranked bowler in the world and his batting had come of age He was supposed to be the first name being inked in after Kohli in all formats but Jadeja has looked completely out of sorts ever since with the ball He was roughed up by Sri Lanka in the Champions Trophy where he finished with an average of 6225 and went at nearly 6 an over And he was wicket-less in two matches here His batting in the shorter formats has been a concern for a while He hasn’t played an innings of note since a few stellar ones in New Zealand over three years ago His run-out of Pandya was the tipping point of an otherwise awful tournament and it was his wicket in Antigua to a unnecessary shot that turned the game against India And the tour symbolically ended with Lewis smacking him for a series of sixes including one into the parking lot No 9: Salute the rising son Kuldeep Yadav’s chinaman was the talking point of an otherwise drab ODI series And with every West Indian batsman he bamboozled the youngster seemed to be throwing the gauntlet to Jadeja and R Ashwin by outshining them Ashwin’s ODI career is in a state of flux owing to some bizarre selection calls that have been made at his expense Being dropped just after his best performance in this format since the last World Cup took the cake A few Tests against Sri Lanka should put him back amongst the wickets and hopefully he can then take that confidence into resurrecting an otherwise hanging ODI career With Bhuvneshwar Kumar Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah likely to lead the Indian attack come 2019 there might only be one vacancy for a spinner which on present form should go to
