DESPITE HEAT, MASSIVE TURNOUT AT CM SHARMA’S RALLY IN Pb
BJP will win with huge margin: CM
Aishwary Pradhan

Ferozepur
hief Minister
Bhajan Lal
Sharma said on
Monday that AAP is a
party steeped in corrup-
tion. “This party had ear-
lier agitated against cor-
ruption in Ramlila Maid-
an along with Anna
Hazare. But now this
party itself is being found
involved in corruption
cases. Even Congress,
which has ruled the coun-
try for most of the last 70
years, has done nothing
except corruption, cas-
teism, nepotism and ap-
peasement. Now these
corrupt people are con-
testing elections together
in Delhi. The people of
Punjab will answer all
these by voting in favor
of BJP,” Sharma was ad-
dressing a public meeting
in Baluana, Punjab in
support of Ferozepur Lok
Sabha candidate Rana
Gurmeet Singh Sodhi as
part of LS election cam-
paign. He said that before
2014, the country had to
face corruption, terrorist
incidents, Naxalism and
scams on daily basis.
“The public had lost faith
Modi became the PM,
circumstances changed
in the country and the
country started moving
on path of development.
Modi has taken impor-
tant steps for poor wel-
fare, border security, de-
velopment of country.

Matter of concern: PM on ‘Pak
support’ for RaGa and Kejriwal
First India Bureau
New Delhi
PM Narendra Modi on
Monday spoke about the
endorsement to Congress
leader Rahul Gandhi and
AAP chief Arvind Kejri-
wal by Pakistan and said
it is a “matter of grave
concern and calls for a
thorough investigation”.
PM Modi, in an inter-
view to news agency
IANS said, “I don’t un-
derstand why some select
group of people, appar-
ently those who harbour
animosity against us, get
endorsements from Pak,
why voices of support
emanate from there, for
certain individuals.” He
added India is mature de-
mocracy and such ‘prov-
ocation’calls for a probe.
NO FAMILY MEMBER OF TERRORISTS WILL GET GOVT JOB IN J&K: AMIT SHAH
Union Home Minister Amit Shah
also said that the Narendra Modi
government has not only targeted
terrorists but also eliminated the terror eco-
system, resulting in a drastic fall in terror in-
cidents in the country. “In Kashmir, we have
taken a decision that if someone joins a ter-
rorist organisation, their family members will
not get any government job,” he told PTI
in an interview. On SC’s decision to scrap
the electoral bond scheme, he said it is for
Parliament to decide on an alternative. If
impact of black money rises, an alternative
should be found, he added. P5

The Gujarat High Court
on Monday came down
heavilyontheRajkotMu-
nicipal Corporation
(RMC) over the tragic
game zone fire that
claimed 28 lives. The
court also expressed its
lack of faith in the state
machinery, which only
takes action after innocent
lives are lost. The RMC’s
lawyer informed the court
that the TRP game zone
had not sought the neces-
sary permissions, prompt-
ing the court to question
whether the civic body
had turned a blind eye to
the construction of such a
large structure within its
jurisdiction.We do not do
so with the hope to give

SEVENTH PHASE
TO TEST CM YOGI’S
POPULARITY IN UP
ok Sabha elections are about to enter the sev-
enth and final phase. The 12 constituencies in
eastern Uttar Pradesh that will go to poll on
June 1 fall in the influence zone of Chief MinisterYogi
Adityanath. Although bulldozers have not been de-
ployed for some time, Yogi’s popularity as bulldozer
baba will be tested. On June 4 when the results start
pouring in all eyes will be on UP. In the 2019 general
election the BJPdominated all seven phases in UPand
won 62 seats. The Bahujan Samaj Party bagged 10
seats, Samajwadi Party five and Congress one.
With the Opposition parties forming the INDIAlli-
ance, the political situation in the state has changed
from the previous elections. The contest this year is
going to be close. If the BJP tally declines, as is being
predicted by some quarters, fingers will be pointed at
Yogi. Only the BSPcan upset the opposition’s calcula-
tions and save the day for the BJP.
L
FIRES WHICH EXPOSE
GRAFT IN SYSTEM
he Gaming Zone fire in Gujarat’s Rajkot,
which claimed 28 lives, has justifiably drawn
the high court’s ire towards the state govern-
ment and the local administration. The court labeled
it a man-made disaster due to the absence of neces-
sary approvals and safety measures at gaming zones.
Similarly, in Delhi, a fire claimed the lives of six
newborns at the hospital where they were born. The
trauma of the parents is unimaginable. The hospital
lacked both a fire extinguisher and an emergency
exit. As in Rajkot, regulations were flouted in the
hospital’s oxygen storage facility. Despite the hospi-
tal’s expired license,
lax authorities, will-
ing to overlook vio-
lations for bribes, al-
lowed the tragedy to
occur. Such human
tragedies typically
happen because of
the apathy of facility
owners, often in col-
lusion with a seg-
ment of the bureau-
cracy. The suspen-
sions following the
Rajkot tragedy high-
light this issue.
They include a po-
lice inspector who
gave a positive opin-
ion about the gaming
zone, another police
inspector in the license branch for ignoring a clerk’s
noting, an assistant town planner for allowing the
gaming zone structure to function even though it
had no approval from the town planning depart-
ment, an assistant engineer in the town planning
department for not taking any action, a deputy su-
perintendent engineer of road and building depart-
ment forgiving a favourable report without visiting
the site and a station officer of the fire department
for allowing the gaming zone to function without a
no objection certificate from his department. Offi-
cials who waited for the tragedy to happen should
not be suspended but charged with manslaughter.

THE AI-DRIVEN
RESEARCH
Moreover, AI may help us
become more humane.
Consider how responsive,
present, and patient
conversational AI models
and chatbots can be.
These features could
have a profound impact
on us. Not everyone has
reliable access to human
kindness and support.
But when such resources
become readily available,
that will improve many
people’s own capacities
for kindness and empathy.
And empathy can
beget empathy. I think
this dimension of AI’s
potential has yet to be fully
appreciated.
Everyone should ask
themselves what a
promising synthesis
might look like. What if
we can usher in a new
era of human flourishing,
where AI-driven research
helps us discover new
cures and harness the
power of nuclear fusion
in time to avert the worst
consequences of climate
change? It’s only natural
to peer into the dark
unknown and consider
all that could go wrong.
But it is necessary – and
more essentially human
– to consider what could
possibly go right.
MAXIMSFOR
THEAIAGE
Reid
Hoffman
The writer is Co-Founder
of LinkedIn
ebates about
technology
have increas-
ingly been
reduced to
stark dichotomies. Artifi-
cial intelligence should be
curtailed, or it should be ac-
celerated: thesis and antith-
esis, but no synthesis. Rath-
er than picking a side, we
should consider alternative
rallying cries that place the
focus where it belongs: hu-
manity.
To that end, I propose
six maxims. The first is a
famous quip from the
Carthaginian general Han-
nibal: “I shall either find a
way or make one.” WithAI
still at a very early stage,
we have barely scratched
the surface of its potential.
AI can help us find paths
that we couldn’t see be-
fore, and it can help us
make new ones through
the force of human creativ-
ity. Tools like ChatGPT,
Copilot, and Pi are trained
on material by and about
people. Far from replacing
us, they extend us.
Imagine finding a previ-
ously indiscernible thread
of insight that runs through
Gödel, Escher, Bach, Cara-
vaggio, Rousseau, and
Vivaldi; or a thread tying
together the ingredients
you just happen to have in
your kitchen.Avast collec-
tion of human creation and
past contributions hangs
before us like an expand-
ing tapestry, and we now
have the tools to do more
with it than any previous
generation ever could.
The second maxim is:
“We are symbols, and in-
habit symbols.” That is
how RalphWaldo Emerson
described our use of lan-
guage to comprehend, ex-
plain, and shape the world.
We humans have always
relied on tools, and that is
what symbols are.They en-
able us to create things that
did not exist before and do
not occur naturally. Con-
sider the griffin, with the
head and wings of an eagle
and the body of a lion. It is
a human creation that re-
flects some reality we want
to see in the world. Hu-
mans created griffins for
uniquely human reasons.
AI is no different.
True, many imaginative
creations–fromMaryShel-
ley’s monster in Franken-
stein to James Cameron’s
killer cyborg in Terminator
– are meant to be caution-
ary. We naturally feel fear
when initially encountering
“the other” or “the new.”
But the griffin reminds us
thatwecanconvertfearinto
a sense of majestic possibil-
ity. Ultimately, humans are
both the creators and the
products of their symbols,
culture, environment, and
decisions.TogetherwithAI,
we can create more griffins.
The third maxim is to
build cathedrals, as these
ennoble our efforts and turn
mere groupings of human-
ity into fellowships. Actual
cathedrals are some of hu-
mankind’smostawe-inspir-
ing creations, making it
only fitting that we now
refer to missions like the
Apollo moon landing as
“cathedral projects.” How
great would it be if these
were as much a part of our
everydaylivesascathedrals
are in European cities?
Such projects require
many sets of hands, work-
ing in concert across re-
gions, disciplines, and
sometimes even genera-
tions. As the writer and
aviator Antoine de Saint-
Exupéry wrote, “A cathe-
dral is built with stones; it
is made up of stones; but
the cathedral ennobles
each stone, which becomes
a cathedral stone.” Scien-
tific discoveries and tech-
nological innovations are
stones in the cathedral of
human progress.
The fourth maxim is that
we must take small risks to
have any hope of navigat-
ing the big ones. Rather
than trying to eliminate
risk altogether – which is
impossible – we ought to
welcome challenges that
could bring failure, be-
cause these create opportu-
nities for iteration, reflec-
tion, discussion, and con-
tinual improvement.
The fifth maxim is that
technology is what makes
us human. If we buy into
the notion thatAI is the an-
tithesis to humankind’s
thesis, we will anticipate a
future of half-human, half-
machine cyborgs. But that
is not really how it works.
The combination of thesis
and antithesis leads not to
a crude mashup, but to a
new thesis. The two evolve
together, and the resulting
synthesis, in this case, is a
better human.
The sixth and final max-
im is that we have an obli-
gation to make the future
better than the present. Im-
agine a personalized digi-
tal doctor or tutor in every-
one’s pocket. What are the
costs of that happening
later, rather than sooner?
Speed is a virtue when it
comes to technology, giv-
en its unrivaled power to
improve lives.
SOURCE: PROJECT SYNDICATE
Far too often, debates about technology,
innovation, and progress fall into crude
dichotomies – humans versus machines, utopia
versus dystopia – that distract from the matter
at hand. Rather than fixating on extremes, we
should adopt a more nuanced and historically
informed view of our tools, and of ourselves

SHAH’S POLL PREDICTION...
Aided by technology, new criminal laws will deliver justice within 3 yrs: HM
PTI
New Delhi
Technology will be a key
enabler for the new crim-
inal laws that come into
effect July 1 as summons
will be issued by SMS,
90 per cent witnesses will
appear through video
calls and courts will issue
orders within three years
of filing of an FIR, Union
Home Minister Amit
Shah has said.
“I can tell you with
confidence that after three
years, our criminal justice
system will be the most
modern criminal justice
system in the world,” he
told PTI in an interview.
Piloted by Shah him-
self, the newly enacted
criminal laws – the
Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhi-
ta, the Bharatiya Nagarik
Suraksha Sanhita and the
Bharatiya Sakshya Act
will come into effect
from July 1, replacing the
colonial-era Indian Penal
Code, the Code of Crim-
inal Procedure and the
Indian Evidence Act of
1872 respectively.
In the interview, Shah
laid out for the first time
many details of the new
criminal justice system,
which he said are almost
entirely driven by tech-
nology.For example, all
court matters will be-
come online and FIR,
court diary and judge-
ment will be digitised.
Already, officials have
collected finger prints
data of nine crore crimi-
nals across the country in
the last five years.
After lifting finger
prints from a crime scene,
police will be able to
identify the criminal and
also if the crime has been
committed by a repeat of-
fender from that data
base of finger prints
within seven and half
minutes, he said
“We have brought very
big reforms (through the
new criminal laws).After
the laws come into effect,
90 per cent people will
not have to go to courts.
The witnesses will ap-
pear online,” Shah said.
Earlier, he said, sum-
mon meant physically
serving it to someone at
their home. “Many such
changes have been incor-
porated (in new laws).
Similar is the case with
regards to the charge
sheet too,” he said.
He said earlier charge
sheet meant submission
of volumes of docu-
ments, but once the new
laws come into force the
charge sheet will be con-
tained in a pen drive and
the response to it can also
be delivered digitally on
a pen drive.
“All these matters will
now be online. The FIR,
court diary, judgement
will also be digitised. We
have made forensic evi-
dence compulsory in cas-
es where there is a provi-
sion for imprisonment for
a period of minimum
seven years,” he said.
Asked about the prepa-
ration for rolling out the
new laws, the home min-
ister said it is going on
full swing and training of
officials is almost over.
After its implementa-
tion, “one can get an or-
der even from the Su-
preme Court within
three years from the day
of registering an FIR”
under the new criminal
laws, he said.
Shah said he had been
working on the new
criminal laws since 2019
after he took charge of
the home ministry. “We
have been working to-
wards modernisation of
courts and police sta-
tions. Everything is hap-
pening with the help of
technology. Law is get-
ting modernised through
technology,” he said.

Despite the intensifying
political climate in
Himachal Pradesh,
which is heading to polls
on June 1 in the final
phase of the Lok Sabha
elections, environmen-
tal concerns, particular-
ly the forest fires plagu-
ing the state, have re-
ceived little attention in
public discourse.
The state has been
grappling with wide-
spread forest fires, nota-
bly in the chir pine for-
ests of the middle belt,
severely affecting the
local flora and fauna. An
extended dry spell has
caused the forest fire sea-
son to start a month ear-
lier this year.
SinceApril, there have
been 627 reported inci-
dents of forest fires in
Himachal Pradesh, pre-
dominantly in the dis-
tricts of Shimla, Solan,
Bilaspur, Mandi, and
Kangra. These fires have
ravaged 6,048 hectares of
forest land, resulting in
an estimated loss of Rs
1,40,88,628, according
to forest officials.
The Dharamshala Cir-
cle in Kangra district has
been the hardest hit, with
159 fire incidents burn-
ing 289.5 hectares of
plantation area.

traffic conges-
tion on Sunday as the in-
flux of tourists for the
Chardham Yatra coin-
cided with the weekend

causing traffic to crawl
throughout the day. High-
ways and city roads alike
were choked with vehi-
cles, especially those
bearing license plates
from Delhi, Haryana,
Punjab, Uttar Pradesh,

The traffic situation
was dire, with jams re-
ported at various intersec-
tions. The local traffic
police worked tirelessly
to manage the gridlock,
but the sheer volume of
vehiclesoverwhelmedthe
city’s infrastructure. All
parking lots in Haridwar
reached full capacity, ex-
acerbating the conges-
tion. Tourists reported
long delays, with some
waiting several hours to
navigate through the city.
The scorching sun added
to their woes. Many visi-
tors expressed frustration
at the lack of effective
traffic management and
called for the administra-
tion to implement more
robust measures.
In response, the police
administration noted that
they had implemented a
one-way traffic plan in
several areas over the
weekend. Additionally,
large vehicles were
banned from entering the
urban area to ease the
flow of traffic.

Asserting that spiritual
empowerment is the real
empowerment, President
Droupadi Murmu on
Monday said when the
followers of any religion
or sect deviate from the
path of spirituality, they
become victims of fa-
naticism and suffer from
an unhealthy mentality.
Spiritual values con-
nect people of all reli-
gions to each other, she
said, addressing the na-
tional launch of ‘Spiritu-
al Empowerment for a
Clean and Healthy Soci-
ety’organised by Brahma
Kumaris here.
She said the forces
promoting fear, terror,
and war are very active in
many parts of the world.
In such an environ-
ment, Brahma Kumari
Institution has provided
an effective platform for
the empowerment of hu-
manity through many
centres in more than 100
countries. This is an in-
valuable effort to
strengthen universal
brotherhood by promot-
ing spiritual values,
Murmu said.
The president said the
golden chapters of world
history and the history of
nations have always been
based on spiritual values.
World history is wit-
ness to the fact that disre-
garding spiritual values
and adopting only the
path of material progress
has ultimately proved
disastrous. Holistic well-
being is possible only on
the basis of a healthy
mentality, she said.
Murmu said a truly
healthy person meets all
three dimensions -- phys-
ical, mental and spiritual.
Such individuals create a
healthy society, nation
and world community,
she added.

over the country as a whole

At least 19 people, in-

have been killed in pow-
erful storms that ravaged
the states of Texas, Okla-
homa andArkansas in the
central United States,
destroying homes and
plunging thousands into
darkness amid rising

Seven fatalities were
reported in Cooke Coun-
ty in Texas, near the
Oklahoma border, where
a tornado on Saturday
night ripped through a
rural area near a mobile
home park, officials said.
“It’s just a trail of de-
bris left. The devastation
is pretty severe,” Cooke
County Sheriff Ray Sap-
pington said.
The dead included two
children, aged two and
five, and three members
of a family, the sheriff
said. Sappington said the
death toll was likely to
rise as search and rescue
operations were under-
way for some people who
remained missing on
Sunday morning.
Texas Governor Greg
Abbott on Sunday (local
time) said that about 100
people were injured by
the Saturday tornado,
noting that the exact toll
was “hard to tell with cer-
tainty”, media reported.
More than 200 houses
as well as other buildings
were destroyed and more
than 100 others were
damaged, Abbott said.
“I’d be shocked if those
numbers do not increase,”

houses and businesses,
flipped mobile homes
and knocked down trees

near the community of

At least seven people
were killed and millions

as Severe Cyclone ‘Re-

of Bangladesh with
devastating winds of up

surges, inundating hun-

The Department said
that the weather system,
which lay 150 km

ince there are
different geo-
graphical, soci-

varied as Rajasthan, the
responsibilities and pri-

tors also vary according
to these challenges and
circumstances. While
some collectors focus on
opium and illegal busi-

canal water, liquor ma-
fia, issues related to
tribal populace, etc. But
the Kota district is per-
haps one of its kind
whose problems are
unique not just in Ra-
jasthan, but across the
nation!
This problem pertains
to the anthropogenic is-
sue wherein some stu-
dents who converge
here for preparing for
competitive exams, ei-
ther run away or commit
suicide.
Kota is renowned
across the nation as a
‘coaching hub’and there
are around 300 coaching
institutes in the city
which cater to approxi-
mately 3 lakh students.
Additionally, there are
about 5,000 hostels and
PGs that provide resi-
dential services to these
students.
But the problem is,
for reasons unknown,
some students either run
away or choose to end
their lives. In 2023, 24
students ended their
lives and in the first four
months of the current
year, 8 students have
died by suicide while 13
have run off and many
of these 13 are still un-
traceable.
The state government
is extremely serious
about this problem and
efforts are being made
to solve it too. There-
fore, this is a unique re-
sponsibility on Kota

his predecessors behind
in taking an innovative
approach to handling
this situation and has
made it a priority for

ter. He has taken vari-
ous unique initiatives
like the ‘Kamyaab
Kota’ campaign under
which every Friday a
‘dinner with collector’
programme is held. So
far, Ravindra has per-
sonally held direct com-
munication and coun-
selling of 15,000 stu-
dents!
Furthermore, letters
have been written to
parents of all 3 lakh stu-
dents to engage them
directly. Additionally,
special training has been
imparted to more than
8,000 hostel wardens,
gatekeepers and PG
servants so that they can
observe and identify if
any child is under undue
stress etc.
Moreover, Ravindra
has also ensured that
‘anti-hanging devices’
are installed in 100 per
cent of the hostels. The
hostels, which have not
followed through, about
5 such hostels, have
been sealed under sec-
tion 133 of the CrPC.
About 15 senior RAS
have been made nodal
officers and given the
responsibility of con-
necting with students.
Goswami is working
on developing such a
communication system
through which all 3 lakh
students can be directly
contacted.
Sources claim that
Ravindra Goswami is
the first collector, who
has taken up this prob-
lem with utmost serious-
ness and sincerity and
has taken steps as well.

On Sunday, CM Bhajan
Lal Sharma held a review
meeting of the Transport
Department at the CMO.
During the meeting, the
CM expressed strong dis-
pleasure regarding ac-
tivities that led to action
by theACB in Bharatpur.
Sharma emphasised
that such activities in the
Transport Department
won’t be tolerated and
expressed dissatisfaction
with ACS Transport and
the Transport Commis-
sioner. They were in-
structed to perform well
to improve the depart-
ment’s image. Deputy
CM Dr Premchand Bair-
wa was also present dur-
ing the meeting.
Interestingly, com-
plaints from Jaipur RTO
II Dharmendra Chaud-
hary regarding targeted
action against buses and
trucks had reached the
CM. Thus, the CM ex-
pressed his discontent
regarding this during the
meeting. Following the
review of Transport
Dept, CM Bhajan Lal
Sharma will conduct re-
view meetings of other
departments in days to
come. Notably, RTO re-
gional in-charges will
now be required to con-
duct daily monitoring.
RTO office work must be
monitored for 7 hours,
and a report must be sub-
mitted to Transport
Commissioner every
day. Previously, regional
in-charges were only ac-
tive in March. In re-
sponse to the CM’s dis-
satisfaction, the Trans-
port Dept issued new
directives.

Union Jal Shakti Minis-
ter and BJP candidate
from Jodhpur LS seat,
GS Shekhawat, who has
been campaigning in
Punjab, launched a scath-
ing attack on AAP, ques-
tioning the credibility of
Arvind Kejriwal and
Bhagwant Mann. “If you
examine the track record
of Arvind Kejriwal and
Bhagwant Mann, their
credibility is questiona-
ble. Even their own party
members don’t trust
them.”
Shekhawat criticised
both leaders for miscon-
struing a routine state-
ment by Home Minister
to suit their narrative.

Former CM Ashok Ge-
hlot has taken the state
government to task on
electricity, water and law
and order issues. Gehlot
said that the Chief Minis-
ter should give time to
these problems and make
arrangements. He also
advised that the Chief
Minister needs to change
his advisors, otherwise
he will not be able to suc-
ceed. While talking to the
media at the state Con-
gress office, Ashok Ge-
hlot said that the people
are worried about elec-
tricity and water. “Girls
are being raped  burnt.
Bhajanlal Sharma has
become the new Chief
Minister, hence he needs
a good advisor. If we run
with the remote control
of Delhi or RSS, we will
not succeed. Chief Min-
ister should use his wis-
dom and the chair teach-
es everything. If the
Chief Minister gets nerv-
ous, then Modi and Shah
will make some excuse
or the other and remove
him after the elections,”
the former CM said.

  • 1. DESPITE HEAT, MASSIVE TURNOUT AT CM SHARMA’S RALLY IN Pb BJP will win with huge margin: CM Aishwary Pradhan and Sunil Sihag Ferozepur hief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma said on Monday that AAP is a party steeped in corrup- tion. “This party had ear- lier agitated against cor- ruption in Ramlila Maid- an along with Anna Hazare. But now this party itself is being found involved in corruption cases. Even Congress, which has ruled the coun- try for most of the last 70 years, has done nothing except corruption, cas- teism, nepotism and ap- peasement. Now these corrupt people are con- testing elections together in Delhi. The people of Punjab will answer all these by voting in favor of BJP,” Sharma was ad- dressing a public meeting in Baluana, Punjab in support of Ferozepur Lok Sabha candidate Rana Gurmeet Singh Sodhi as part of LS election cam- paign. He said that before 2014, the country had to face corruption, terrorist incidents, Naxalism and scams on daily basis. “The public had lost faith Modi became the PM, circumstances changed in the country and the country started moving on path of development. Modi has taken impor- tant steps for poor wel- fare, border security, de- velopment of country.

NO FAMILY MEMBER OF TERRORISTS WILL GET GOVT JOB IN J&K: AMIT SHAH Union Home Minister Amit Shah also said that the Narendra Modi government has not only targeted terrorists but also eliminated the terror eco- system, resulting in a drastic fall in terror in- cidents in the country. “In Kashmir, we have taken a decision that if someone joins a ter- rorist organisation, their family members will not get any government job,” he told PTI in an interview. On SC’s decision to scrap the electoral bond scheme, he said it is for Parliament to decide on an alternative. If impact of black money rises, an alternative should be found, he added.

Vice-President of India @VPIndia IN-DEPTH SEVENTH PHASE TO TEST CM YOGI’S POPULARITY IN UP ok Sabha elections are about to enter the sev- enth and final phase. The 12 constituencies in eastern Uttar Pradesh that will go to poll on June 1 fall in the influence zone of Chief MinisterYogi Adityanath. Although bulldozers have not been de- ployed for some time, Yogi’s popularity as bulldozer baba will be tested. On June 4 when the results start pouring in all eyes will be on UP. In the 2019 general election the BJPdominated all seven phases in UPand won 62 seats. The Bahujan Samaj Party bagged 10 seats, Samajwadi Party five and Congress one. With the Opposition parties forming the INDIAlli- ance, the political situation in the state has changed from the previous elections. The contest this year is going to be close. If the BJP tally declines, as is being predicted by some quarters, fingers will be pointed at Yogi. Only the BSPcan upset the opposition’s calcula- tions and save the day for the BJP. L FIRES WHICH EXPOSE GRAFT IN SYSTEM he Gaming Zone fire in Gujarat’s Rajkot, which claimed 28 lives, has justifiably drawn the high court’s ire towards the state govern- ment and the local administration. The court labeled it a man-made disaster due to the absence of neces- sary approvals and safety measures at gaming zones. Similarly, in Delhi, a fire claimed the lives of six newborns at the hospital where they were born. The trauma of the parents is unimaginable. The hospital lacked both a fire extinguisher and an emergency exit. As in Rajkot, regulations were flouted in the hospital’s oxygen storage facility. Despite the hospi- tal’s expired license, lax authorities, will- ing to overlook vio- lations for bribes, al- lowed the tragedy to occur. Such human tragedies typically happen because of the apathy of facility owners, often in col- lusion with a seg- ment of the bureau- cracy. The suspen- sions following the Rajkot tragedy high- light this issue. They include a po- lice inspector who gave a positive opin- ion about the gaming zone, another police inspector in the license branch for ignoring a clerk’s noting, an assistant town planner for allowing the gaming zone structure to function even though it had no approval from the town planning depart- ment, an assistant engineer in the town planning department for not taking any action, a deputy su- perintendent engineer of road and building depart- ment forgiving a favourable report without visiting the site and a station officer of the fire department for allowing the gaming zone to function without a no objection certificate from his department. Offi- cials who waited for the tragedy to happen should not be suspended but charged with manslaughter. T Such human tragedies typically happen because of the apathy of facility owners, often in collusion with a segment of the bureaucracy. The suspensions following the Rajkot tragedy highlight this issue THE AI-DRIVEN RESEARCH Moreover, AI may help us become more humane. Consider how responsive, present, and patient conversational AI models and chatbots can be. These features could have a profound impact on us. Not everyone has reliable access to human kindness and support. But when such resources become readily available, that will improve many people’s own capacities for kindness and empathy. And empathy can beget empathy. I think this dimension of AI’s potential has yet to be fully appreciated. Everyone should ask themselves what a promising synthesis might look like. What if we can usher in a new era of human flourishing, where AI-driven research helps us discover new cures and harness the power of nuclear fusion in time to avert the worst consequences of climate change? It’s only natural to peer into the dark unknown and consider all that could go wrong. But it is necessary – and more essentially human – to consider what could possibly go right. MAXIMSFOR THEAIAGE Reid Hoffman The writer is Co-Founder of LinkedIn ebates about technology have increas- ingly been reduced to stark dichotomies. Artifi- cial intelligence should be curtailed, or it should be ac- celerated: thesis and antith- esis, but no synthesis. Rath- er than picking a side, we should consider alternative rallying cries that place the focus where it belongs: hu- manity. To that end, I propose six maxims. The first is a famous quip from the Carthaginian general Han- nibal: “I shall either find a way or make one.” WithAI still at a very early stage, we have barely scratched the surface of its potential. AI can help us find paths that we couldn’t see be- fore, and it can help us make new ones through the force of human creativ- ity. Tools like ChatGPT, Copilot, and Pi are trained on material by and about people. Far from replacing us, they extend us. Imagine finding a previ- ously indiscernible thread of insight that runs through Gödel, Escher, Bach, Cara- vaggio, Rousseau, and Vivaldi; or a thread tying together the ingredients you just happen to have in your kitchen.Avast collec- tion of human creation and past contributions hangs before us like an expand- ing tapestry, and we now have the tools to do more with it than any previous generation ever could. The second maxim is: “We are symbols, and in- habit symbols.” That is how RalphWaldo Emerson described our use of lan- guage to comprehend, ex- plain, and shape the world. We humans have always relied on tools, and that is what symbols are.They en- able us to create things that did not exist before and do not occur naturally. Con- sider the griffin, with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion. It is a human creation that re- flects some reality we want to see in the world. Hu- mans created griffins for uniquely human reasons. AI is no different. True, many imaginative creations–fromMaryShel- ley’s monster in Franken- stein to James Cameron’s killer cyborg in Terminator – are meant to be caution- ary. We naturally feel fear when initially encountering “the other” or “the new.” But the griffin reminds us thatwecanconvertfearinto a sense of majestic possibil- ity. Ultimately, humans are both the creators and the products of their symbols, culture, environment, and decisions.TogetherwithAI, we can create more griffins. The third maxim is to build cathedrals, as these ennoble our efforts and turn mere groupings of human- ity into fellowships. Actual cathedrals are some of hu- mankind’smostawe-inspir- ing creations, making it only fitting that we now refer to missions like the Apollo moon landing as “cathedral projects.” How great would it be if these were as much a part of our everydaylivesascathedrals are in European cities? Such projects require many sets of hands, work- ing in concert across re- gions, disciplines, and sometimes even genera- tions. As the writer and aviator Antoine de Saint- Exupéry wrote, “A cathe- dral is built with stones; it is made up of stones; but the cathedral ennobles each stone, which becomes a cathedral stone.” Scien- tific discoveries and tech- nological innovations are stones in the cathedral of human progress. The fourth maxim is that we must take small risks to have any hope of navigat- ing the big ones. Rather than trying to eliminate risk altogether – which is impossible – we ought to welcome challenges that could bring failure, be- cause these create opportu- nities for iteration, reflec- tion, discussion, and con- tinual improvement. The fifth maxim is that technology is what makes us human. If we buy into the notion thatAI is the an- tithesis to humankind’s thesis, we will anticipate a future of half-human, half- machine cyborgs. But that is not really how it works. The combination of thesis and antithesis leads not to a crude mashup, but to a new thesis. The two evolve together, and the resulting synthesis, in this case, is a better human. The sixth and final max- im is that we have an obli- gation to make the future better than the present. Im- agine a personalized digi- tal doctor or tutor in every- one’s pocket. What are the costs of that happening later, rather than sooner? Speed is a virtue when it comes to technology, giv- en its unrivaled power to improve lives. SOURCE: PROJECT SYNDICATE Far too often, debates about technology, innovation, and progress fall into crude dichotomies – humans versus machines, utopia versus dystopia – that distract from the matter at hand.

Aided by technology, new criminal laws will deliver justice within 3 yrs: HM PTI New Delhi Technology will be a key enabler for the new crim- inal laws that come into effect July 1 as summons will be issued by SMS, 90 per cent witnesses will appear through video calls and courts will issue orders within three years of filing of an FIR, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said. “I can tell you with confidence that after three years, our criminal justice system will be the most modern criminal justice system in the world,” he told PTI in an interview. Piloted by Shah him- self, the newly enacted criminal laws – the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhi- ta, the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita and the Bharatiya Sakshya Act will come into effect from July 1, replacing the colonial-era Indian Penal Code, the Code of Crim- inal Procedure and the Indian Evidence Act of 1872 respectively. In the interview, Shah laid out for the first time many details of the new criminal justice system, which he said are almost entirely driven by tech- nology.For example, all court matters will be- come online and FIR, court diary and judge- ment will be digitised. Already, officials have collected finger prints data of nine crore crimi- nals across the country in the last five years. After lifting finger prints from a crime scene, police will be able to identify the criminal and also if the crime has been committed by a repeat of- fender from that data base of finger prints within seven and half minutes, he said “We have brought very big reforms (through the new criminal laws).After the laws come into effect, 90 per cent people will not have to go to courts. The witnesses will ap- pear online,” Shah said. Earlier, he said, sum- mon meant physically serving it to someone at their home. “Many such changes have been incor- porated (in new laws). Similar is the case with regards to the charge sheet too,” he said. He said earlier charge sheet meant submission of volumes of docu- ments, but once the new laws come into force the charge sheet will be con- tained in a pen drive and the response to it can also be delivered digitally on a pen drive. “All these matters will now be online. The FIR, court diary, judgement will also be digitised. We have made forensic evi- dence compulsory in cas- es where there is a provi- sion for imprisonment for a period of minimum seven years,” he said. Asked about the prepa- ration for rolling out the new laws, the home min- ister said it is going on full swing and training of officials is almost over. After its implementa- tion, “one can get an or- der even from the Su- preme Court within three years from the day of registering an FIR” under the new criminal laws, he said. Shah said he had been working on the new criminal laws since 2019 after he took charge of the home ministry. “We have been working to- wards modernisation of courts and police sta- tions. Everything is hap- pening with the help of technology. Law is get- ting modernised through technology,” he said.

The state has been grappling with wide- spread forest fires, nota- bly in the chir pine for- ests of the middle belt, severely affecting the local flora and fauna. An extended dry spell has caused the forest fire sea- son to start a month ear- lier this year. SinceApril, there have been 627 reported inci- dents of forest fires in Himachal Pradesh, pre- dominantly in the dis- tricts of Shimla, Solan, Bilaspur, Mandi, and Kangra. These fires have ravaged 6,048 hectares of forest land, resulting in an estimated loss of Rs 1,40,88,628, according to forest officials. The Dharamshala Cir- cle in Kangra district has been the hardest hit, with 159 fire incidents burn- ing 289.5 hectares of plantation area.

Recognizing that India’s rich tapestry of traditional medicine, encompassing Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, and Yoga, is a testament to the profound wisdom of our ancestors, he said, “They embody a perfect blend of science, philosophy, and spirituality, emphasizing the harmonious balance between mind, body, and spirit and nature.” HARIDWAR OVERWHELMED Pilgrim influx leads to major traffic woes Harish Thapliyal Dehradun aridwar experi- enced severe traffic conges- tion on Sunday as the in- flux of tourists for the Chardham Yatra coin- cided with the weekend rush. The holy city was packed with visitors, causing traffic to crawl throughout the day. High- ways and city roads alike were choked with vehi- cles, especially those bearing license plates from Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. The traffic situation was dire, with jams re- ported at various intersec- tions. The local traffic police worked tirelessly to manage the gridlock, but the sheer volume of vehiclesoverwhelmedthe city’s infrastructure. All parking lots in Haridwar reached full capacity, ex- acerbating the conges- tion. Tourists reported long delays, with some waiting several hours to navigate through the city. The scorching sun added to their woes. Many visi- tors expressed frustration at the lack of effective traffic management and called for the administra- tion to implement more robust measures. In response, the police administration noted that they had implemented a one-way traffic plan in several areas over the weekend. Additionally, large vehicles were banned from entering the urban area to ease the flow of traffic.

Spiritual values con- nect people of all reli- gions to each other, she said, addressing the na- tional launch of ‘Spiritu- al Empowerment for a Clean and Healthy Soci- ety’organised by Brahma Kumaris here. She said the forces promoting fear, terror, and war are very active in many parts of the world. In such an environ- ment, Brahma Kumari Institution has provided an effective platform for the empowerment of hu- manity through many centres in more than 100 countries. This is an in- valuable effort to strengthen universal brotherhood by promot- ing spiritual values, Murmu said. The president said the golden chapters of world history and the history of nations have always been based on spiritual values. World history is wit- ness to the fact that disre- garding spiritual values and adopting only the path of material progress has ultimately proved disastrous. Holistic well- being is possible only on the basis of a healthy mentality, she said. Murmu said a truly healthy person meets all three dimensions -- phys- ical, mental and spiritual. Such individuals create a healthy society, nation and world community, she added. PTI New Delhi Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Monday that over the last decade, the Narendra Modi govt has reshaped the Union budget from a mere record of expendi- tures to a strategic blue- print for equitable distri- bution with a vision of transparency, efficiency and effectiveness in gov- ernance. “We make judi- cious and efficient use of every rupee collected from our taxpayers and give them a transparent picture of public financ- es, Sitharaman said in a detailed post on X. This starkly contrasts the @INCIndia-led UPA govt's repetitive practice of hiding the deficits through off-budget bor- rowings and issuance of 'Oil Bonds', which some- what covertly shifted the fiscal burden to future generations, she said.

  • 9. Will Ravindra be ‘Kamyaab’in his innovative ‘Kamyaab Kota’drive? Rajendra Chhabra Jaipur ince there are different geo- graphical, soci- etal, and local challeng- es in a state as vast and varied as Rajasthan, the responsibilities and pri- orities of district collec- tors also vary according to these challenges and circumstances. While some collectors focus on opium and illegal busi- ness, others focus on canal water, liquor ma- fia, issues related to tribal populace, etc. But the Kota district is per- haps one of its kind whose problems are unique not just in Ra- jasthan, but across the nation! This problem pertains to the anthropogenic is- sue wherein some stu- dents who converge here for preparing for competitive exams, ei- ther run away or commit suicide. Kota is renowned across the nation as a ‘coaching hub’and there are around 300 coaching institutes in the city which cater to approxi- mately 3 lakh students. Additionally, there are about 5,000 hostels and PGs that provide resi- dential services to these students. But the problem is, for reasons unknown, some students either run away or choose to end their lives. In 2023, 24 students ended their lives and in the first four months of the current year, 8 students have died by suicide while 13 have run off and many of these 13 are still un- traceable. The state government is extremely serious about this problem and efforts are being made to solve it too. There- fore, this is a unique re- sponsibility on Kota Collector Ravindra Goswami, who has left his predecessors behind in taking an innovative approach to handling this situation and has made it a priority for himself. 2016 batch IAS and MBBS doctors, Ravin- dra himself is a former Kota coaching student and hence he has a spe- cial interest in this mat- ter. He has taken vari- ous unique initiatives like the ‘Kamyaab Kota’ campaign under which every Friday a ‘dinner with collector’ programme is held. So far, Ravindra has per- sonally held direct com- munication and coun- selling of 15,000 stu- dents! Furthermore, letters have been written to parents of all 3 lakh stu- dents to engage them directly. Additionally, special training has been imparted to more than 8,000 hostel wardens, gatekeepers and PG servants so that they can observe and identify if any child is under undue stress etc. Moreover, Ravindra has also ensured that ‘anti-hanging devices’ are installed in 100 per cent of the hostels. The hostels, which have not followed through, about 5 such hostels, have been sealed under sec- tion 133 of the CrPC. About 15 senior RAS have been made nodal officers and given the responsibility of con- necting with students. Goswami is working on developing such a communication system through which all 3 lakh students can be directly contacted. Sources claim that Ravindra Goswami is the first collector, who has taken up this prob- lem with utmost serious- ness and sincerity and has taken steps as well. Ravindra Goswami S 08 The basic fact is that words and content can be copied by anyone but the one thing which is the difference between success and failure, cannot be copied and it is passion!

During the meeting, the CM expressed strong dis- pleasure regarding ac- tivities that led to action by theACB in Bharatpur. Sharma emphasised that such activities in the Transport Department won’t be tolerated and expressed dissatisfaction with ACS Transport and the Transport Commis- sioner. They were in- structed to perform well to improve the depart- ment’s image. Deputy CM Dr Premchand Bair- wa was also present dur- ing the meeting. Interestingly, com- plaints from Jaipur RTO II Dharmendra Chaud- hary regarding targeted action against buses and trucks had reached the CM. Thus, the CM ex- pressed his discontent regarding this during the meeting. Following the review of Transport Dept, CM Bhajan Lal Sharma will conduct re- view meetings of other departments in days to come. Notably, RTO re- gional in-charges will now be required to con- duct daily monitoring. RTO office work must be monitored for 7 hours, and a report must be sub- mitted to Transport Commissioner every day. Previously, regional in-charges were only ac- tive in March. In re- sponse to the CM’s dis- satisfaction, the Trans- port Dept issued new directives. First India Bureau Hoshiarpur Union Jal Shakti Minis- ter and BJP candidate from Jodhpur LS seat, GS Shekhawat, who has been campaigning in Punjab, launched a scath- ing attack on AAP, ques- tioning the credibility of Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann. “If you examine the track record of Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann, their credibility is questiona- ble. Even their own party members don’t trust them.” Shekhawat criticised both leaders for miscon- struing a routine state- ment by Home Minister to suit their narrative. Naresh Sharma Jaipur Former CM Ashok Ge- hlot has taken the state government to task on electricity, water and law and order issues. Gehlot said that the Chief Minis- ter should give time to these problems and make arrangements. He also advised that the Chief Minister needs to change his advisors, otherwise he will not be able to suc- ceed. While talking to the media at the state Con- gress office, Ashok Ge- hlot said that the people are worried about elec- tricity and water. “Girls are being raped burnt. Bhajanlal Sharma has become the new Chief Minister, hence he needs a good advisor. If we run with the remote control of Delhi or RSS, we will not succeed. Chief Min- ister should use his wis- dom and the chair teach- es everything. If the Chief Minister gets nerv- ous, then Modi and Shah will make some excuse or the other and remove him after the elections,” the former CM said. First India Bureau Jaipur CEC of the Election Commission of India - Rajiv Kumar, reviewed preparations for counting of votes through VC on Monday. He expressed satisfaction over the se- curity arrangements at the counting venue and adequate supply of re- sources required for the counting work in connec- tion with the counting of votes to be held on June 4 for the elections held in all 25 LS constituencies of the state and by-poll on Bagidaura Legislative Constituency.
