People have faith in Gandhis, Congress
united under Sonia, says CM Gehlot
Jaipur: Chief Minister
Ashok Gehlot on Tues-
day said the Congress is
united and vibrant un-
der the leadership of
Sonia Gandhi and
called Rahul Gandhi
the only national oppo-
sition leader raising a
voice against the Nar-
endra Modi govern-
ment.
Gehlot’s statement
appears to have been
triggered by the cover
story and an editorial in
anewsmagazine,which
argued that the Gan-
dhis are now “isolated”.
The CM said some
people have a “miscon-
ception” that the family
has been isolated in
public life, he said.
People across society
have faith in them and
in their leadership
qualities, he added.
He said that because
of this faith in the Gan-
dhis the rank and file of
the Congress across the
country are standing
firm with them, and the
family will never be iso-
lated.
Gehlot said the Con-
gress under the leader-
ship of party president
Sonia Gandhi is united,
vibrant and strong
enough to take on any
challenges.
He said former par-
ty president Rahul
Gandhi is the only na-
tional opposition lead-
er who is raising a
voice against the NDA
government on issues
related to common
people.
“Demonstrated and
continuous commit-
ment is the defining
hallmark of leadership.
And there is no match
for his commitment and
dedication towards the
nation. We have a vi-
brant opposition, what
we need is a vibrant and
free press,” the Chief
Minister said. —PTI

express its disapproval
of the discussions on
farmers’ protest and
press freedom in the
British parliament, call-
ing it “gross interfer-

been continuing for
more than 100 days.

FEEDBACK FROM MLAs OF BELOW
PAR PERFORMANCE COST HIM POST
THE STORM AGAINST TRIVENDRA
WAS BREWING SINCE LAST YEAR
Trivendra Singh Rawat had several meetings in Delhi
with the BJP leadership, who reportedly received
feedback from party MLAs in Uttarakhand that the Chief
Minister’s below par performance would cost the party
in polls due by February. The move to replace him a
year before elections is unusual, given that it is often
seen as a vote of no-confidence by the party in its own
government. It is also a rare move by the BJP to replace
a Chief Minister for non-performance. Former Chief
Minister Harish Rawat of the Congress attacked the BJP,
calling Mr Rawat’s removal an admission of failure.
Even Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party, which is
trying to register its presence in Uttarakhand said,
“In four years the BJP did not do a single thing on
the basis of which it can seek votes. They are trying
to hide their failures.
In December last year, when Nadda had visited
Dehradun, RSS functionaries had conveyed that
the BJP can win the 2022 Assembly elections only
if it takes party workers along. Rawat’s govern-
ment has since come under the scanner following
last month’s flood in Chamoli when it pushed to
resume work on projects suspended by the apex
court. Earlier, in October 2020, the High Court had
ordered a CBI probe into allegations made by a
journalist in a video, accusing Rawat of allegedly
getting money transferred to relatives in 2016 to
back the appointment of a person in Jharkhand.
The Supreme Court had stayed the order.
SC dismisses PIL challenging EC’s
decision of 8-phase Bengal polls
New Delhi: The Su-
preme Court on Tues-
day dismissed the PIL
filed by an advocate,
Manohar Lal Sharma,
challenging the Elec-
tion Commission of In-
dia’s (ECI) decision re-
garding 8-phase West
Bengal Assembly polls.
A three-judge bench
of the Apex Court,
headed by Chief Justice
of India (CJI) Sharad
Arvind Bobde and also
comprising Justices A S
Bopanna and V Ra-
masubramanian dis-
missed the petition filed
by petitioner-cum-law-
yer, Sharma.
SC also dismissed the
petition of Sharma,
who sought a CBI probe
into the alleged use of
‘Jai Shri Ram’ as a ral-
lying slogan in the poll
run-up. Sharma stated
that the EC had said
that the election in West
Bengal will be held in
eight phases. The peti-
tioner demanded a stay
on the order of the EC.
Sharma in his plea
has said that the order
of the EC violated arti-
cle 14 and 21 of the Con-
stitution. —ANI

BEGGING NOT TO SHOOT CHILDREN
A nun went down on her knees in front of policemen in a northern Myanmar town and
pleaded to stop shooting protesters agitating against last month’s coup. Video showed Sister
Ann Rose Nu Tawng in a white robe kneeling on a street in the town of Myitkyina, speaking
to two policemen who were also kneeling. “I said, I don’t want to see any trouble here and
can’t leave if police don’t leave,” she said. “I begged them not to shoot the children.”
SENSEX RALLIES 584 PTS, PRIVATE BANKS SHINE
Mumbai: Equity benchmark Sensex
rallied 584 points on Tuesday track-
ing gains in HDFC twins, ICICI Bank
and Kotak Bank amid positive cues
from global markets. The 30-share
BSE index ended 584.41 points or
1.16 per cent higher at 51,025.48,
and the broader NSE Nifty surged
142.20 points or 0.95 per cent to
15,098.40. Kotak Bank was the top
gainer in the Sensex pack, rising
around 3 per cent, followed by HDFC
twins, ICICI Bank, Tech Mahindra,
Bajaj Finance, Asian Paints and TCS.
On the other hand, PowerGrid, ONGC,
NTPC and Dr Reddy’s were among
the laggards. According to Binod
Modi, Head-Strategy at Reliance Se-
curities, domestic equities extended
gains for the second consecutive
day mainly aided by favourable cues
from global markets. Financials (ex-
PSU banks) majorly supported the
market’s rally on Tuesday. Barring
Financials and IT, most of the key
sectoral indices traded lower. Nota-
bly, midcap and small cap indices
were down as investors opted to take
profit off the table after recent run-up
in these spaces, he added. Elsewhere
in Asia, bourses in Hong Kong and
Tokyo ended on a positive note, while
Shanghai and Seoul were in the red.

“After clubbing both
the schemes, some
overlapping occurred
and total number
touched 1.10 crore. The
benefit of this scheme
will be available in Ra-
jasthan only. This, we
have said at the time of
starting the scheme,”
Sharma said.
He was responding

In a written reply to
her, Sharma said that
state government has
not shut Bhamashah

Ruckus in House on ‘Tribal not
Hindu’ remark by Cong MLA First India Bureau
Jaipur: Rajasthan will
not make any laws and
regulations on the im-
perative of giving em-
ployment to only local
people in industries.
Industry minister
Parasadi Lal Meena
clarified that there is
no consideration by
state govt to make it
mandatory for indus-
tries to give employ-
ment to only locals.
Meena was replying
to the question of Con-
gress MLA Sandeep
Yadav who also raised
demand for legislation
to make it mandatory
to give employment to
local candidates, to
which the minister cat-
egorically refused.
Meena said employ-
ment is provided by
industries in state,
based on availability of
necessary skills,
among local youth and
as per requirement of
skilled and unskilled
labourers. To promote
employment & indus-
trial investment, Raj
Investment Promotion

Jaipur: BJP MLA Vas-
udev Devnani on Tues-
day raised the issue of
non-availability of
books to students of
state open school dur-
ing the Zero Hour on
Tuesday. Devnani said
that exams are sched-
uled after two months
and so far, 1.5 lakh stu-
dents of classes X-XII
have not been able to
get books.
He said there are
lakhs of students in
the state who are una-
ble to go to school and
are studying through
state open. “Currently,
more than 1.25 lakh
students are studying
in classes X and XII,
but they are suffering
due to dept’s negli-
gence. Exams are going
to be held in two
months but the stu-
dents could not get
textbooks so far. What
will they study?” he
asked. He demanded
the government to pro-
vide books to these
children at the earliest
and action against
guilty officers.
On the other hand,
ministers were miss-
ing from the House
during Zero Hour.
When the matter re-
lated to roadways was
raised, transport min-
ister was not present in
the house which was
duly pointed out by Dy
LoP Rajendra Rathore.
Jaipur: Assembly
Speaker Dr CP
Joshi on Tuesday
said the education in
Sanskrit colleges in
the state has almost
collapsed due to ab-
sence of teachers.
“If teaching posts
in Sanskrit colleges
remain vacant then
people will lose their
interest in San-
skrit,” Joshi said,
while intervening in
a question raised by
BJP MLA Satish
Poonia on the issue.
The Speaker sug-
gested that tempo-
rary teachers can be
involved in Sanskrit
colleges as it is done
in other colleges.
“The vacant posts
indicate that all San-
skrit colleges would
collapse,” he said.
In his reply
, minis-
ter Subhash Garg
said that amend-
ment is being made
in the rules and
smooth classes
would run with the
help of guest faculty
.
Garg informed the
House that there are
13 acharya-level and
17 shastri-level col-
leges under the de-
partment. Around
118 posts of profes-
sors and lecturers
are lying vacant
against a sanctioned

Jaipur: In a controver-
sial remark, Congress
MLAGaneshGhoghara
on Tuesday said that
tribal religion is differ-
ent and tribal people
are being harassed in
the name of Hinduism.
“Stop imposing Hin-
duism on us, we are not
Hindus, we do not con-
sider ourselves Hin-
dus,” he said during the
debate on demands for
grants in Assembly
.
The statement of
Ghoghra invited a
sharpreactionfromOp-
position BJP in the
House. Dy Leader of
Opposition Rajendra
Rathore demanded
from the ruling Con-
gress to clarify whether
the party supports his
statement.“Ourculture
is different, we worship
nature. RSS people say
that Adivasis are Hin-
dus, while we are being
exploited in the name
of Hinduism.Ourtribal
religion code should be
different. Stop impos-
ing Hinduism on us, we
are not Hindus, we do
not consider ourselves
Hindus,”Ghoghra,who
isalsostatepresidentof
Youth Congress, said.
Ghoghara said that
the way Dronacharya
had asked for Eklavya’s
thumb so that Arjuna
could become a better
archer, today Guru Dro-
nacharya is sitting in
every department.
Several BJP MLAs
including Rajendra
Rathore objected to
Ghoghara’s statement.
BJP MLA Gopichand
Meena objected and
said, “We are Hindus
andnoonecanseparate
us from Hindu reli-
gion.”
Energy minister BD
Kalla then asked him to
give a definition of Hin-
du religion which led to
uproar in the House.
Congress MLA from
Pratapgarh Ramlal
Meena said that the re-
ligion and culture of
the tribal is different
and demanded a sepa-
rate tribal code. He also
said that the tribal is
not Hindu. He said that
tribalreligionshouldbe
recognized.
“Whenever a tribal
speaks of his authority
,
BJP people talk about
conversion. I was ex-
ploited by the BJP
. I did
not have the freedom to
speak in the BJP that is
why I came to the Con-
gress and raised my
point,” he said.

TUG OF WAR BETWEEN CENTRE & RAJ GOVT OVER VACCINE
AS VIRUS SURGES, RAJ REPORTS VAX SHORTAGE
First India Bureau
Jaipur: The Rajasthan
government has ac-
cused the Center of not
giving corona vaccine
to the state on time and
has stopped administer-
ing the first dose due to
lack of vaccine, an al-
legation rejected by the
centre.
Health minister Dr
Raghu Sharma said the
centre has not provided
an adequate number of
vaccines.
“We are not getting
the dose on time that is
why we have stopped
the work of administer-
ing the first dose of the
vaccine,” he told report-
ers outside the assem-
bly. Sharma said that
the central government
has identified about 67
lakh beneficiaries for
the second phase in Ra-
jasthan which requires
a total of 1.50 crore dos-
es.
He informed that till
now, the state govern-
ment has provided only
29.90 lakh doses. He said
that Rajasthan has the
stock of the second dose
only. The minister said
that the state govern-
ment has written a let-
ter to the NITI Aayog,
Union Health Minister
and Cabinet Secretary
last week to make avail-
able the vaccine dose as
soon as possible.
On the other hand,
centre responded to the
allegation of the minis-
ter saying there has
been no shortage so far.

he above lyrics
from the writer
“MayaAngelous”
wonderful poem
called ”Phenom-
enal Women” is
apt for sharing
with readers on this day:
March8,whentheworldover
women are celebrated and
recognized for their integral
role in all spheres. The entire
poem is a celebration of
womanhood just as today is.
While it is wonderful, that
we pause on this one day and
officially celebrates “wom-
anhood” it’s also important
to celebrate who we are eve-
ry day of the year or wher-
ever we feel like.
Our great country is re-
plete with examples across
centuries of the strong role
women have played, time and
again. Our history and our
present is coloured with vi-
brant hues of nurture and
growth provided by women
be it in their roles as moth-
ers, wife’s, daughters-in-law,
friend, councillor, educator,
and as a working woman. To
name a few from a never-end-
ing list, let’s take the example
of our honourable erstwhile
Prime Minister: Indira Gan-
dhi, who was the first and
only female prime minister
of a democratic India to date.
Let’salsolookatIndraNooyi,
former chairperson and CEO
of PepsiCo. She is consist-
ently ranked among the
world’s 100 most powerful
women; she is an amazing
example of what stellar
strength a woman can dis-
play in the corporate world.
Kamala Harris’s unprece-
dented successful political
path has shown Indian wom-
en that anything is possible
if you believe in yourself and
walk your talk. She is the
United States’ first female
vice president, the highest-
ranking female official in the
US history, and the first In-
dian Decent vice president.
In every field Indian wom-
an have been able to achieve
and to contribute in building
a better society
. Take exam-
ples of Kalpana Chawla, who
believed there is no such
thing as barriers and shooted
straight for the stars. Deepa
Karmakar, the gymnast over-
came her fears to go on to win
an Olympic medal for India.
Geeta Gopinath, Chief Econ-
omist of the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) is the
second Indian and the first
woman to assume the posi-
tion. The list is endless.
If we look around us: in
our families, societies, com-
munity, city and state, we
find that there are so many
admirable women who we
can learn from.
While there is so much
progress there is also many
a trials and tribulation
when it comes to Indian
women from a typical north
India household. Our nur-
turing, conditioning, and
outlook are shaped by what
we see as children and in
most cases, the environ-
ment is far from liberating.
A majority of women in
Rajasthan and various other
states of north India are
caught in the web of old ta-
boos and stereotypical expec-
tations from some if not all
members of the respective
family
. While women want to
grow independent every-
where, not all of them have
been offered ample exposure,
orientation, or the know-how
to do so. Sadly many in rural
areas think marriage is the
ultimate culmination of all
things good in life. While
marriage is important, liter-
acy and financial independ-
ence are the need of the hour
forall,irrespectiveof gender.
Despite challenges, the fu-
ture seems positive, there is
no end to what we as humans
canachievethiswiththesup-
port of family and friends. In
recent years, women have es-
tablished themselves in pro-
fessions considered the bas-
tion of their male counter-
parts. From facing criticism
for joining the army, real es-
tate, police, or taking up jobs
as drivers, Guards women
have overcome challenges to
take on leadership roles.
In India and around the
world, efforts are being made
towards gender balancing.
Let this day be a reminder
that we must keep walking
the path of progress and
keep taking concrete steps
and tangible actions for all
men and women equally so
that we build a truly demo-
cratic nation, one that we
can be proud of and one that
reflects growth and progress
irrespective of gender.

IN-DEPTH
TRIVENDRA
RAWAT QUITS,
WILL BJP BREAK
THE JINX?
n a sudden development, Uttara-
khand Chief Minister Trivendra
Singh Rawat tendered his resigna-
tion. The office of the State’s chief
minister has been jinxed ever
since Uttarakhand came into being. Barring
ND Tiwari in 2002, no other chief minister
has completed his full term in the last 20
years’ of the State’s existence. The political
parties in the State are also under another
spell: if the reigning chief minister’s term is
cut short then the party is ousted from power
in the following election. Trivendra Singh
Rawat, incidentally
, was 10 days short of com-
pleting four years in office and the Assembly
elections in Uttarakhand are due in February
next year. Of course these superstitions don’t
mean much but that is how it has been so far.
A jinx is meant to be broken, like Yogi Adity-
anath is expected to break the one concern-
ing Noida.
Nityanand Swami, BS Koshyari, ND Ti-
wari (2007), retired Maj-General BC Khan-
duri, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’. Six
months before the elections the party re-
moved Pokhriyal and re-appointed Khan-
duri as CM but lost the 2012 Assembly elec-
tion. Voters gave a fractured mandate in the
elections which followed. Congress managed
to form a government with the support of
Bahujan Samaj Party and Uttarakhand
Kranti Dal but it was short-lived. So were the
other governments which were formed---
three with Harish Rawat and one in which
Vijay Bahuguna was at the helm--- in a span
of five years. Besides four chief ministers in
a span of five years, also saw two phases of
the President’s rule. In fact Trivendra Singh
Rawat has been the second longest serving
chief minister of the State after ND Tiwari
and rightly said that he was fortunate to
serve for four years.
It is interesting to look at the reasons why
the BJP leadership asked Trivendra Singh
Rawat to demit office. There was said to be
unrest among party functionaries over the
chief minister’s style of working. Some party
leaders complained that bureaucrats were
ignoring their requests. Reports said that so
strong was the negative sentiment against
Rawat that his continuation, it was felt, could
lead to the party’s defeat in 2022 elections.
Chances of BJP breaking the jinx and
winning a second consecutive term in 2022
are quite bright as the Congress is unable to
keep its house in order. Already, Harish
Rawat and Indira Hridayesh factions are
fighting over who should be the CM face of
the party. If this is somehow resolved the
disgruntled members of the party would
cross over to the BJP.
What remains to be seen is if the party will
apply the same formula to effect changes in
some other states where BJP chief ministers
may have upset the RSS, some party members
and who may be heavily dependent only on a
set of bureaucrats.
I
urging greentech
stocks have led to
a debate about
whether we are on
the cusp of a Green Revolu-
tion, or yet another asset-
price bubble. In fact, both
interpretations are provi-
sionally correct, because
all now depends on wheth-
er governments will step in
to provide the necessary
rules, infrastructure, and
markets.
Following the tenfold
growth of Tesla’s stock be-
tween March 2020 and Jan-
uary 2021, the company’s
founder, Elon Musk, has
emerged as the avatar of
green innovation. The Te-
sla phenomenon has
spilled over into the rest of
the nascent electric-vehi-
cle (EV) industry, sprin-
kling stardust on a host of
green startups with un-
proven technologies and
minimal revenues.
As entrepreneurs and
private investors step in to
do what governments have
failed to do, some commen-
tatorsnowbelievea“Green
Revolution” is at hand.
Others, however, look at
the same picture and see
the early signs of a
“greentech bubble.”
The greentech (or clean-
tech) boom is indeed vul-
nerable. Like the earlier
digital boom that resulted
in the dot-com bubble of
the late 1990s, it is heavily
reliant on an outside force
that could suddenly recede
– namely, easy money. In
today’s environment of
low interest rates, the pre-
sent value of future cash
flows has been inflated,
and thus will plummet
were interest rates to rise.
For ten years now, cen-
tral banks have set policy
rates below the rate of in-
flation – which itself has
resided at historically low
levels. As a result, negative
real interest rates on safe
assets have pushed large
institutional and retail in-
vestors alike into riskier
assets yielding higher po-
tential returns. It is worth
remembering that just be-
fore the recent focus on
greentech stocks, the Big
Tech giants achieved ex-
tremely high valuations as
part of a broader “unicorn
bubble” in private mar-
kets, where “unconven-
tional” investors paid pre-
mium prices for unsellable
shares of what they hoped
would be the next FAANG
(Facebook, Apple, Amazon,
Netflix, Google) stock.
In any case, the US Fed-
eral Reserve has responded
to the COVID-19 crisis with
a commitment to keep its
policy rate near zero until
the US economy achieves
“maximum employment
and inflation averaging 2%
over time.” Yet, given the
rapid administration of
COVID-19 vaccines under
US President Joe Biden’s
administration, the stage
is being set for normaliza-
tion in capital markets.
So, the question is not
whether the green bubble
will burst (all bubbles do,
eventually), but whether it
will burst before the Green
Revolutionhasestablisheda
firm foothold. Will the capi-
tal mobilized by the current
boom be wasted, or will it be
embodied as the infrastruc-
tureneededtoturntherevo-
lution into the new normal?

Effecting radical change
in energy supply and con-

require what only the state
can provide: vast public in-
vestment and new rules of
the road (taxes and regula-
tions). We know this from
the history of the digital
revolution in the second
half of the twentieth cen-
tury, which I examined in
my book Doing Capitalism
in the Innovation Economy
.
In technological revolu-
tions,stateactorsmustplay
the initial leading role, by
establishing a politically
legitimate mission (such as
winning the Cold War) to
justifymassivespendingon
high-risk programs. Like-
wise, it is the state that
must fund upstream invest-
ment in basic research
whosepotentialreturnsare
too uncertain to motivate
the private sector. And, as a
novel technology matures,
the state creates a market
by serving as the first cus-
tomer, thereby pulling the
supply side of the innova-
tion economy down the
learning curve to low-cost,
reliable production.

that the scandal was a
conspiracy against him.
While addressing a press
conference in the state
capital here, Jarkholi fur-
ther claimed that he knew
about the purported sex
tape four months ago and
that it was “fake”. “It is a
conspiracy. I knew about
the CD four months back.
I was aware of it 24 hours
before its release. It is a
fake CD and the plan by
two-three people. I’m not

TAX COLLECTION ON PETROL, DIESEL
UP 459% IN 7 YEARS; PRICE DOUBLED
Price of domestic cooking gas, LPG has doubled to Rs 819 per cylinder in the last seven years while the
increase in taxes on petrol and diesel has swelled collections by over 459 per cent: Dharmendra Pradhan
New Delhi: The tax col-
lected on the retail price
of petrol and diesel in
India has increased by
459 per cent in seven
years, according to oil
minister Dharmendra
Pradhan’s written reply
in Lok Sabha. He also in-
formed on Monday that
the price of liquified pe-
troleum gas (LPG) dou-
bled to Rs 819 per cylin-
der in the same period.
Pradhan had earlier
faced a spate of ques-
tions regarding rising
energy prices in the
country
. In a written re-
ply, Pradhan said that
the price of LPG was Rs
410.5 per 14.2-kilogram
cylinder on March 1,
2014. This has now in-
creased to Rs 819 per cyl-
inder in Delhi.
The steepest hike in
domestic cooking gas
came in the last few
months — from Rs 594
per cylinder in Decem-
ber 2020 to Rs 819 in
March 2021.
Between Nov 2014
and Jan 2016, the gov-
ernment had raised ex-
cise duty on petrol and
diesel on nine occa-
sions. —PTI
Price of LPG has now increased to Rs 819 per cylinder in Delhi.
SHARP INCREASE IN
FUEL TAX COLLECTIONS
New Delhi: At a time when fuel prices have
become a burden for citizens, Dharmendra Prad-
han’s reply indicated that there has been a 459 per
cent rise in taxes collected on petrol and diesel.
It may be noted that both petrol and diesel prices
are retailing at an all-time high. In Delhi, a litre
of petrol costs Rs 91.17 per litre and the same
quantity of diesel costs Rs 81.47. It is higher in
some other major cities like Mumbai, Chennai and
Kolkata. At present, taxes account for a retail price
of petrol and diesel. Pradhan said taxes collected
on the two fuels was Rs 52,537 crore in 2013 and
rose to Rs 2.13 lakh crore in 2019-20.
AFTER PETROL, NOW EDIBLE OIL PUTS KITCHEN
BUDGET ON FIRE, INCREASES UPTO 60%
New Delhi: Common man, reeling under high inflation is also facing double
attack on oil prices --both consumer fuel including petrol and diesel and edible
oil. On the one hand, where while prices of petrol
and diesel are constantly burning a hole in the
pocket of common man, now expensive edible oil
also seems to be spoiling the kitchen budget. In
the last one year, while there has been an increase
of 95% in the prices of crude on one hand, on the
other hand, the prices of various sorts of edible
oil have become expensive by 30 to 60%, which
is doubly hitting the consumer. Crude palm oil has
reached record highs. Soybean and Soya oil prices have also witnessed newer
highs with prices increasing between 30% to 60% in a year.

party as he is when I am

RAJENG/2019/77764 l Vol 2 l Issue No. 273 WILL REACH PARLIAMENT ON LAKHS OF TRACTORS TO SEEK REPEAL OF THE THREE NEW FARM LAWS IF NEEDED: BKU’S TIKAIT PM MODI INAUGURATES MAITRI SETU BETWEEN INDIA AND BANGLADESH TO BOOST CONNECTIVITY AND ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE People have faith in Gandhis, Congress united under Sonia, says CM Gehlot Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tues- day said the Congress is united and vibrant un- der the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and called Rahul Gandhi the only national oppo- sition leader raising a voice against the Nar- endra Modi govern- ment. Gehlot’s statement appears to have been triggered by the cover story and an editorial in anewsmagazine,which argued that the Gan- dhis are now “isolated”. The CM said some people have a “miscon- ception” that the family has been isolated in public life, he said. People across society have faith in them and in their leadership qualities, he added. He said that because of this faith in the Gan- dhis the rank and file of the Congress across the country are standing firm with them, and the family will never be iso- lated. Gehlot said the Con- gress under the leader- ship of party president Sonia Gandhi is united, vibrant and strong enough to take on any challenges. He said former par- ty president Rahul Gandhi is the only na- tional opposition lead- er who is raising a voice against the NDA government on issues related to common people. “Demonstrated and continuous commit- ment is the defining hallmark of leadership. And there is no match for his commitment and dedication towards the nation. We have a vi- brant opposition, what we need is a vibrant and free press,” the Chief Minister said. —PTI Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora took his first shot of Covid-19 vaccine at the Nirvachan Sadan along with Election Commissioners on Tuesday. P6 Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Lal Krishna Advani was on Tuesday administered the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at AIIMS in New Delhi. BJP President Jagat Prakash Nadda on Tuesday received his first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine in Delhi. He was administered the jab by nurse Remya PC at Fortis in New Delhi. WHO’S WHO GET COVID JAB Dehradun: Ending days of speculation amid disquiet within the ruling BJP in Utta- rakhand, Chief Minis- ter Trivendra Singh Rawat on Tuesday sub- mitted his resignation to Governor Baby Rani Maurya. “I have submitted my resignation as the chief minister to the Gover- nor today . BJP legisla- ture party meeting is scheduled to be held at 10 am tomorrow at the party office,” Rawat said while addressing a press conference. Accepting his resig- nation, the Governor has asked Rawat to be the caretaker CM till a new candidate is select- ed for the post. Rawat’s resignation comes a day after he met BJP national presi- dent JP Nadda in Delhi. Party sources said that prior Turn to P6 New Delhi: India called in the British High Commissioner today to express its disapproval of the discussions on farmers’ protest and press freedom in the British parliament, call- ing it “gross interfer- ence” and “votebank politics”. This is the first time the govern- ment of another nation has officially conducted internal discussions on the protests, which have been continuing for more than 100 days. The 90-minute debate was held on Monday, during which several MPs of the Labour par- ty, Liberal democrats and the Scottish Nation- al Party raised concern over the Indian govern- ment’s reaction to the protests. The UK government had responded that concerns will be raised with India when both Prime Min- isters meet in person.” Turn to P6 India summons ambassador over UK debate on farm laws FEEDBACK FROM MLAs OF BELOW PAR PERFORMANCE COST HIM POST THE STORM AGAINST TRIVENDRA WAS BREWING SINCE LAST YEAR Trivendra Singh Rawat had several meetings in Delhi with the BJP leadership, who reportedly received feedback from party MLAs in Uttarakhand that the Chief Minister’s below par performance would cost the party in polls due by February. The move to replace him a year before elections is unusual, given that it is often seen as a vote of no-confidence by the party in its own government. It is also a rare move by the BJP to replace a Chief Minister for non-performance. Former Chief Minister Harish Rawat of the Congress attacked the BJP, calling Mr Rawat’s removal an admission of failure. Even Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party, which is trying to register its presence in Uttarakhand said, “In four years the BJP did not do a single thing on the basis of which it can seek votes. They are trying to hide their failures. In December last year, when Nadda had visited Dehradun, RSS functionaries had conveyed that the BJP can win the 2022 Assembly elections only if it takes party workers along. Rawat’s govern- ment has since come under the scanner following last month’s flood in Chamoli when it pushed to resume work on projects suspended by the apex court. Earlier, in October 2020, the High Court had ordered a CBI probe into allegations made by a journalist in a video, accusing Rawat of allegedly getting money transferred to relatives in 2016 to back the appointment of a person in Jharkhand. The Supreme Court had stayed the order. SC dismisses PIL challenging EC’s decision of 8-phase Bengal polls New Delhi: The Su- preme Court on Tues- day dismissed the PIL filed by an advocate, Manohar Lal Sharma, challenging the Elec- tion Commission of In- dia’s (ECI) decision re- garding 8-phase West Bengal Assembly polls. A three-judge bench of the Apex Court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde and also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ra- masubramanian dis- missed the petition filed by petitioner-cum-law- yer, Sharma. SC also dismissed the petition of Sharma, who sought a CBI probe into the alleged use of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ as a ral- lying slogan in the poll run-up. Sharma stated that the EC had said that the election in West Bengal will be held in eight phases. The peti- tioner demanded a stay on the order of the EC. Sharma in his plea has said that the order of the EC violated arti- cle 14 and 21 of the Con- stitution. —ANI Uttarakhand CM Rawat steps down amid disquiet in state BJP BJP legislature party in state will meet today to choose new leader Dhan Singh Rawat appears to be the frontrunner for the top post BEGGING NOT TO SHOOT CHILDREN A nun went down on her knees in front of policemen in a northern Myanmar town and pleaded to stop shooting protesters agitating against last month’s coup. Video showed Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng in a white robe kneeling on a street in the town of Myitkyina, speaking to two policemen who were also kneeling. “I said, I don’t want to see any trouble here and can’t leave if police don’t leave,” she said. “I begged them not to shoot the children.” SENSEX RALLIES 584 PTS, PRIVATE BANKS SHINE Mumbai: Equity benchmark Sensex rallied 584 points on Tuesday track- ing gains in HDFC twins, ICICI Bank and Kotak Bank amid positive cues from global markets. The 30-share BSE index ended 584.41 points or 1.16 per cent higher at 51,025.48, and the broader NSE Nifty surged 142.20 points or 0.95 per cent to 15,098.40. Kotak Bank was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, rising around 3 per cent, followed by HDFC twins, ICICI Bank, Tech Mahindra, Bajaj Finance, Asian Paints and TCS. On the other hand, PowerGrid, ONGC, NTPC and Dr Reddy’s were among the laggards. According to Binod Modi, Head-Strategy at Reliance Se- curities, domestic equities extended gains for the second consecutive day mainly aided by favourable cues from global markets. Financials (ex- PSU banks) majorly supported the market’s rally on Tuesday. Barring Financials and IT, most of the key sectoral indices traded lower. Nota- bly, midcap and small cap indices were down as investors opted to take profit off the table after recent run-up in these spaces, he added. Elsewhere in Asia, bourses in Hong Kong and Tokyo ended on a positive note, while Shanghai and Seoul were in the red. Trivendra Singh Rawat OUR EDITIONS: JAIPUR, AHMEDABAD & LUCKNOW

Replying to a ques- tion during Question Hour, Sharma said that state government has clubbed 59.71 lakh ben- eficiaries of Ayush- man Bharat Yojna and 98 lakh beneficiaries of NFSA scheme under Ayushman Bharat Ma- hatma Gandhi Ra- jasthan Swasthya Bima Yojna. “After clubbing both the schemes, some overlapping occurred and total number touched 1.10 crore. The benefit of this scheme will be available in Ra- jasthan only. This, we have said at the time of starting the scheme,” Sharma said. He was responding to a supplementary question by BJP MLA Anita Bhadel. In a written reply to her, Sharma said that state government has not shut Bhamashah Swasthya Bima Yojna run by previous gov- ernment but clubbed it with Ayushman Bharat Yojna of the Centre. He said from Janu- ary 2020 to July 2020, over 3.65 lakh patients were treated under Ayushman Bharat Ma- hatma Gandhi Ra- jasthan Swasthya Bima Yojna. Ruckus in House on ‘Tribal not Hindu’ remark by Cong MLA First India Bureau Jaipur: Rajasthan will not make any laws and regulations on the im- perative of giving em- ployment to only local people in industries. Industry minister Parasadi Lal Meena clarified that there is no consideration by state govt to make it mandatory for indus- tries to give employ- ment to only locals. Meena was replying to the question of Con- gress MLA Sandeep Yadav who also raised demand for legislation to make it mandatory to give employment to local candidates, to which the minister cat- egorically refused. Meena said employ- ment is provided by industries in state, based on availability of necessary skills, among local youth and as per requirement of skilled and unskilled labourers. To promote employment & indus- trial investment, Raj Investment Promotion Scheme-2019 has been implemented, he said. First India Bureau Jaipur: BJP MLA Vas- udev Devnani on Tues- day raised the issue of non-availability of books to students of state open school dur- ing the Zero Hour on Tuesday. Devnani said that exams are sched- uled after two months and so far, 1.5 lakh stu- dents of classes X-XII have not been able to get books. He said there are lakhs of students in the state who are una- ble to go to school and are studying through state open. “Currently, more than 1.25 lakh students are studying in classes X and XII, but they are suffering due to dept’s negli- gence. Exams are going to be held in two months but the stu- dents could not get textbooks so far. What will they study?” he asked. He demanded the government to pro- vide books to these children at the earliest and action against guilty officers. On the other hand, ministers were miss- ing from the House during Zero Hour. When the matter re- lated to roadways was raised, transport min- ister was not present in the house which was duly pointed out by Dy LoP Rajendra Rathore. Jaipur: Assembly Speaker Dr CP Joshi on Tuesday said the education in Sanskrit colleges in the state has almost collapsed due to ab- sence of teachers. “If teaching posts in Sanskrit colleges remain vacant then people will lose their interest in San- skrit,” Joshi said, while intervening in a question raised by BJP MLA Satish Poonia on the issue. The Speaker sug- gested that tempo- rary teachers can be involved in Sanskrit colleges as it is done in other colleges. “The vacant posts indicate that all San- skrit colleges would collapse,” he said. In his reply , minis- ter Subhash Garg said that amend- ment is being made in the rules and smooth classes would run with the help of guest faculty . Garg informed the House that there are 13 acharya-level and 17 shastri-level col- leges under the de- partment. Around 118 posts of profes- sors and lecturers are lying vacant against a sanctioned strength of 218. —PTI Absence of teachers leading to collapse in Sanskrit edu: Joshi Yogesh Sharma/ Naresh Sharma Jaipur: In a controver- sial remark, Congress MLAGaneshGhoghara on Tuesday said that tribal religion is differ- ent and tribal people are being harassed in the name of Hinduism. “Stop imposing Hin- duism on us, we are not Hindus, we do not con- sider ourselves Hin- dus,” he said during the debate on demands for grants in Assembly . The statement of Ghoghra invited a sharpreactionfromOp- position BJP in the House. Dy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore demanded from the ruling Con- gress to clarify whether the party supports his statement.“Ourculture is different, we worship nature. RSS people say that Adivasis are Hin- dus, while we are being exploited in the name of Hinduism.Ourtribal religion code should be different. Stop impos- ing Hinduism on us, we are not Hindus, we do not consider ourselves Hindus,”Ghoghra,who isalsostatepresidentof Youth Congress, said. Ghoghara said that the way Dronacharya had asked for Eklavya’s thumb so that Arjuna could become a better archer, today Guru Dro- nacharya is sitting in every department. Several BJP MLAs including Rajendra Rathore objected to Ghoghara’s statement. BJP MLA Gopichand Meena objected and said, “We are Hindus andnoonecanseparate us from Hindu reli- gion.” Energy minister BD Kalla then asked him to give a definition of Hin- du religion which led to uproar in the House. Congress MLA from Pratapgarh Ramlal Meena said that the re- ligion and culture of the tribal is different and demanded a sepa- rate tribal code. He also said that the tribal is not Hindu. He said that tribalreligionshouldbe recognized. “Whenever a tribal speaks of his authority , BJP people talk about conversion. I was ex- ploited by the BJP . I did not have the freedom to speak in the BJP that is why I came to the Con- gress and raised my point,” he said. Another Congress MLA Mahendrajit Sin- ghMalviyasaidthatthe social justice depart- ment should be with a Dalit minister. BJP MLASamaramGarasia said, “We are Hindus and will remain Hin- dus.Weareforestdwell- ers. You take advantage of reservation and then talk of not being a Hin- du. The British gave the tribal name, we are ‘Vanvasi’.” First India Bureau Jaipur: Days after the letter controversy, BJP MLA Jogeshwar Garg has been appointed as the BJP whip in Assem- bly. After the letter of Leader of Opposition Gulabchand Kataria, the Assembly secretari- at issued the bulletin regarding the appoint- ment of Garg as the BJP whip. The whip was ap- pointed after two-and-a half years. Garg is a Dalit leader and his appointment is being seen as a move to counter former speak- er and party MLA Kailash Meghwal, who is also a Dalit face and considered close to for- mer CM Vasundhara Raje.

  • 4. he above lyrics from the writer “MayaAngelous” wonderful poem called ”Phenom- enal Women” is apt for sharing with readers on this day: March8,whentheworldover women are celebrated and recognized for their integral role in all spheres. The entire poem is a celebration of womanhood just as today is. While it is wonderful, that we pause on this one day and officially celebrates “wom- anhood” it’s also important to celebrate who we are eve- ry day of the year or wher- ever we feel like. Our great country is re- plete with examples across centuries of the strong role women have played, time and again. Our history and our present is coloured with vi- brant hues of nurture and growth provided by women be it in their roles as moth- ers, wife’s, daughters-in-law, friend, councillor, educator, and as a working woman. To name a few from a never-end- ing list, let’s take the example of our honourable erstwhile Prime Minister: Indira Gan- dhi, who was the first and only female prime minister of a democratic India to date. Let’salsolookatIndraNooyi, former chairperson and CEO of PepsiCo. She is consist- ently ranked among the world’s 100 most powerful women; she is an amazing example of what stellar strength a woman can dis- play in the corporate world. Kamala Harris’s unprece- dented successful political path has shown Indian wom- en that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and walk your talk. She is the United States’ first female vice president, the highest- ranking female official in the US history, and the first In- dian Decent vice president. In every field Indian wom- an have been able to achieve and to contribute in building a better society . Take exam- ples of Kalpana Chawla, who believed there is no such thing as barriers and shooted straight for the stars. Deepa Karmakar, the gymnast over- came her fears to go on to win an Olympic medal for India. Geeta Gopinath, Chief Econ- omist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is the second Indian and the first woman to assume the posi- tion. The list is endless. If we look around us: in our families, societies, com- munity, city and state, we find that there are so many admirable women who we can learn from. While there is so much progress there is also many a trials and tribulation when it comes to Indian women from a typical north India household. Our nur- turing, conditioning, and outlook are shaped by what we see as children and in most cases, the environ- ment is far from liberating. A majority of women in Rajasthan and various other states of north India are caught in the web of old ta- boos and stereotypical expec- tations from some if not all members of the respective family . While women want to grow independent every- where, not all of them have been offered ample exposure, orientation, or the know-how to do so. Sadly many in rural areas think marriage is the ultimate culmination of all things good in life. While marriage is important, liter- acy and financial independ- ence are the need of the hour forall,irrespectiveof gender. Despite challenges, the fu- ture seems positive, there is no end to what we as humans canachievethiswiththesup- port of family and friends. In recent years, women have es- tablished themselves in pro- fessions considered the bas- tion of their male counter- parts. From facing criticism for joining the army, real es- tate, police, or taking up jobs as drivers, Guards women have overcome challenges to take on leadership roles. In India and around the world, efforts are being made towards gender balancing. Let this day be a reminder that we must keep walking the path of progress and keep taking concrete steps and tangible actions for all men and women equally so that we build a truly demo- cratic nation, one that we can be proud of and one that reflects growth and progress irrespective of gender.

I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion-models size. When I start to tell them, They think I’m tellin’ lies.

Editor: Anita Hada Sangwan responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act IN-DEPTH TRIVENDRA RAWAT QUITS, WILL BJP BREAK THE JINX? n a sudden development, Uttara- khand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat tendered his resigna- tion. The office of the State’s chief minister has been jinxed ever since Uttarakhand came into being. Barring ND Tiwari in 2002, no other chief minister has completed his full term in the last 20 years’ of the State’s existence. The political parties in the State are also under another spell: if the reigning chief minister’s term is cut short then the party is ousted from power in the following election. Trivendra Singh Rawat, incidentally , was 10 days short of com- pleting four years in office and the Assembly elections in Uttarakhand are due in February next year. Of course these superstitions don’t mean much but that is how it has been so far. A jinx is meant to be broken, like Yogi Adity- anath is expected to break the one concern- ing Noida. Nityanand Swami, BS Koshyari, ND Ti- wari (2007), retired Maj-General BC Khan- duri, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’. Six months before the elections the party re- moved Pokhriyal and re-appointed Khan- duri as CM but lost the 2012 Assembly elec- tion. Voters gave a fractured mandate in the elections which followed. Congress managed to form a government with the support of Bahujan Samaj Party and Uttarakhand Kranti Dal but it was short-lived. So were the other governments which were formed--- three with Harish Rawat and one in which Vijay Bahuguna was at the helm--- in a span of five years. Besides four chief ministers in a span of five years, also saw two phases of the President’s rule. In fact Trivendra Singh Rawat has been the second longest serving chief minister of the State after ND Tiwari and rightly said that he was fortunate to serve for four years. It is interesting to look at the reasons why the BJP leadership asked Trivendra Singh Rawat to demit office. There was said to be unrest among party functionaries over the chief minister’s style of working. Some party leaders complained that bureaucrats were ignoring their requests. Reports said that so strong was the negative sentiment against Rawat that his continuation, it was felt, could lead to the party’s defeat in 2022 elections. Chances of BJP breaking the jinx and winning a second consecutive term in 2022 are quite bright as the Congress is unable to keep its house in order. Already, Harish Rawat and Indira Hridayesh factions are fighting over who should be the CM face of the party. If this is somehow resolved the disgruntled members of the party would cross over to the BJP. What remains to be seen is if the party will apply the same formula to effect changes in some other states where BJP chief ministers may have upset the RSS, some party members and who may be heavily dependent only on a set of bureaucrats. I urging greentech stocks have led to a debate about whether we are on the cusp of a Green Revolu- tion, or yet another asset- price bubble. In fact, both interpretations are provi- sionally correct, because all now depends on wheth- er governments will step in to provide the necessary rules, infrastructure, and markets. Following the tenfold growth of Tesla’s stock be- tween March 2020 and Jan- uary 2021, the company’s founder, Elon Musk, has emerged as the avatar of green innovation. The Te- sla phenomenon has spilled over into the rest of the nascent electric-vehi- cle (EV) industry, sprin- kling stardust on a host of green startups with un- proven technologies and minimal revenues. As entrepreneurs and private investors step in to do what governments have failed to do, some commen- tatorsnowbelievea“Green Revolution” is at hand. Others, however, look at the same picture and see the early signs of a “greentech bubble.” The greentech (or clean- tech) boom is indeed vul- nerable. Like the earlier digital boom that resulted in the dot-com bubble of the late 1990s, it is heavily reliant on an outside force that could suddenly recede – namely, easy money. In today’s environment of low interest rates, the pre- sent value of future cash flows has been inflated, and thus will plummet were interest rates to rise. For ten years now, cen- tral banks have set policy rates below the rate of in- flation – which itself has resided at historically low levels. As a result, negative real interest rates on safe assets have pushed large institutional and retail in- vestors alike into riskier assets yielding higher po- tential returns. It is worth remembering that just be- fore the recent focus on greentech stocks, the Big Tech giants achieved ex- tremely high valuations as part of a broader “unicorn bubble” in private mar- kets, where “unconven- tional” investors paid pre- mium prices for unsellable shares of what they hoped would be the next FAANG (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google) stock. In any case, the US Fed- eral Reserve has responded to the COVID-19 crisis with a commitment to keep its policy rate near zero until the US economy achieves “maximum employment and inflation averaging 2% over time.” Yet, given the rapid administration of COVID-19 vaccines under US President Joe Biden’s administration, the stage is being set for normaliza- tion in capital markets. So, the question is not whether the green bubble will burst (all bubbles do, eventually), but whether it will burst before the Green Revolutionhasestablisheda firm foothold. Will the capi- tal mobilized by the current boom be wasted, or will it be embodied as the infrastruc- tureneededtoturntherevo- lution into the new normal?

Effecting radical change in energy supply and con- sumption inevitably will require what only the state can provide: vast public in- vestment and new rules of the road (taxes and regula- tions). We know this from the history of the digital revolution in the second half of the twentieth cen- tury, which I examined in my book Doing Capitalism in the Innovation Economy . In technological revolu- tions,stateactorsmustplay the initial leading role, by establishing a politically legitimate mission (such as winning the Cold War) to justifymassivespendingon high-risk programs. Like- wise, it is the state that must fund upstream invest- ment in basic research whosepotentialreturnsare too uncertain to motivate the private sector. And, as a novel technology matures, the state creates a market by serving as the first cus- tomer, thereby pulling the supply side of the innova- tion economy down the learning curve to low-cost, reliable production.

TAX COLLECTION ON PETROL, DIESEL UP 459% IN 7 YEARS; PRICE DOUBLED Price of domestic cooking gas, LPG has doubled to Rs 819 per cylinder in the last seven years while the increase in taxes on petrol and diesel has swelled collections by over 459 per cent: Dharmendra Pradhan New Delhi: The tax col- lected on the retail price of petrol and diesel in India has increased by 459 per cent in seven years, according to oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan’s written reply in Lok Sabha. He also in- formed on Monday that the price of liquified pe- troleum gas (LPG) dou- bled to Rs 819 per cylin- der in the same period. Pradhan had earlier faced a spate of ques- tions regarding rising energy prices in the country . In a written re- ply, Pradhan said that the price of LPG was Rs 410.5 per 14.2-kilogram cylinder on March 1, 2014. This has now in- creased to Rs 819 per cyl- inder in Delhi. The steepest hike in domestic cooking gas came in the last few months — from Rs 594 per cylinder in Decem- ber 2020 to Rs 819 in March 2021. Between Nov 2014 and Jan 2016, the gov- ernment had raised ex- cise duty on petrol and diesel on nine occa- sions. —PTI Price of LPG has now increased to Rs 819 per cylinder in Delhi. SHARP INCREASE IN FUEL TAX COLLECTIONS New Delhi: At a time when fuel prices have become a burden for citizens, Dharmendra Prad- han’s reply indicated that there has been a 459 per cent rise in taxes collected on petrol and diesel. It may be noted that both petrol and diesel prices are retailing at an all-time high. In Delhi, a litre of petrol costs Rs 91.17 per litre and the same quantity of diesel costs Rs 81.47.

BJP sources in Utta- rakhand said some MLAs and factions in the party had conveyed their dissatisfaction with the functioning of Rawat’s government to the central leadership and the RSS. Senior MLAs have also been demanding the expan- sion of the State Cabi- net where three berths have been lying vacant for two years. “There is unrest among a major section of party functionaries and MLAs. They are complaining that offic- ers in districts are not paying heed to their recommendations. They are feeling ig- nored. In this situa- tion, winning the next Assembly election could be a challenge,” an RSS functionary had told The Indian Express. Rawat’s visit to Del- hi came with just 10 days to go for his gov- ernment to complete four years, and two days after BJP nation- al vice-president Ra- man Singh held a meeting of the party’s state core committee in Dehradun as an “ob- server” and spoke to members separately. Raman Singh had also visited the RSS of- fice to get feedback on the situation. In De- cember last year, when Nadda had visited Dehradun, RSS func- tionaries had con- veyed that the BJP can win the 2022 Assembly elections only if it takes party workers along. Rawat’s govern- ment has since come under the scanner fol- lowing last month’s flood in Chamoli when it pushed to resume work on projects sus- pended by the apex court. Earlier, in October 2020, the High Court had ordered a CBI probe into allegations made by a journalist in a video, accusing Rawat of allegedly get- ting money trans- ferred to relatives in 2016 to back the ap- pointment of a person in Jharkhand. The Su- preme Court had stayed the order. INDIA SUMMONS... New Delhi on Tuesday said the Foreign Secre- tary had summoned the British envoy and con- veyed “strong opposi- tion to unwarranted and tendentious discus- sion on agricultural re- forms in India in the British Parliament”. The official has made it clear that this repre- sented a gross interfer- ence in politics of an- other democratic coun- try , the foreign ministry said. “He advised that British MPs should re- frain from practicing votebank politics by m i s r e p r e s e n t i n g events, especially in re- lation to another fellow democracy,” a state- ment from the ministry read. The debate had evoked a sharp re- sponse from the Indian High Commission in London yesterday . “We deeply regret that rath- er than a balanced de- bate, false assertions - without substantiation or facts - were made, casting aspersions on the largest functioning democracy in the world and its institutions,” the High Commission had said in a statement. “Foreign media, in- cluding the British me- dia, are present in India and have witnessed the events under discus- sion first-hand. The question of lack of free- dom of the media in In- dia does not arise,” it read. In February, the US had backed “peace- ful protests” by farm- ers. Hailing the farm laws as reforms in the agriculture sector, it said they would “Im- prove Efficiency”. In remarks seen to indicate support for the farm laws, the US said, “In general, the United States welcomes steps that would improve the efficiency of India’s markets and attract greater private sector investment”.

Challenges Vax data given by Centre is incorrect: Gehlot Naresh Sharma Jaipur: Chief Minis- ter Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday, rejected the data provided by the Centre about the num- ber of vaccines provid- ed to the state saying that the data is com- pletely incorrect. “The union Health Ministry has claimed that Rajasthan received 37.61 lakh Covid-19 vac- cines and till yesterday only 24.28 lakh vaccines have been adminis- tered. This data is com- pletely incorrect. As of March 8, Rajasthan re- ceived 31,45,340 vac- cines. Of these, 2,15,180 vaccines have been made available to the Army .” He said that as per the rules, 29,30,160 dos- es were made available for others. As of March 8, 23,26,975 vaccines have been administered in the state. 1,62,888 vac- cines were spoilt, which is less than the 10 per- cent limit allowed by the Centre. Thus, on March 8, only 4,40,297 vaccines were available in the state, he said. “More than two lakh people are being vacci- nated daily in the state. In such a situation, on March 8, the vaccine was available for only two days of vaccination so the State government demanded to send addi- tional vaccines from the Centre. After which the state received 85,000 vaccines on March 9,” the CM said. He appealed to Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan to in- struct his officials to provide the vaccine soon and not to give false information about Rajasthan. “In the third phase, about 22 percent vacci- nation of the country is being done in Rajasthan itself. Both the govern- ment and the public here are excited about the vaccine. Such an misleading information by the union ministry, would further dampen the spirits of the citi- zens of the state and the Corona Warriors,” he said in a series of tweets. He added that as it is said that the Centre will be able to provide the vaccine in 5-7 days, it may cause problems in vaccination again. “In view of this uncertain- ty, vaccination drive was carried out only in medical colleges, dis- trict and private Hospi- tals; Whereas, some districts were forced to discontinue adminis- tering the first dose of vaccine at PHC/ CHC levels,” he said. As of March 8, Rajasthan received 31,45,340 vaccines, said Chief Minister Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot flags off three critical ambulances for Harsora, Bansur and Narayanpur Community Health Centres of Bansur constituencies from the CMR on Tuesday.
