Viewership records have been smashed out of the park with Star Network broadcasting the tournament in eight languages, witnessing an overall reach increase of 12%from last year. Television viewership reached a phenomenal 27.3 million average impressions registering a growth of 15% setting a tournament viewership record, Star Sports has stated in a Press release.The total reach for the VIVO IPL 2019 stood at a mammoth 462 million. The total consumption increased from 300 billion minutes to 338 billion minutes making it the highest ever in VIVO IPL history! By Kunal Dhyani – May 23, 2019 Commentating on the success, Gautam Thakar, CEO, Star Sports said, “I am delighted that VIVO IPL 2019 was the biggest ever! This year, the strong regional strategy of having four independent dedicated language channels in Tamil, Telugu, Bangla and Kannada, the Select Dugout and Super Funday feed contributed immensely to the increased reach of VIVO IPL. The exciting Summer of Cricket on our network began with a spectacular IPL and will continue with the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup. On behalf of the Star Sports Network, I would like to thank all stakeholders who have contributed to make VIVO IPL 2019 a grand success.” Also Read: IPL 2019: Star Sports strikes big with top notch programmingGame Ne Banaya NameTrue to what VIVO IPL is known for, the 2019 edition saw some Game Banayega Name moments with the rapid rise of some of the best Indian talent. Be it the gutsy Riyan Parag, or the youngest VIVO IPL captain this season Shreyas Iyer, or the coming of age performances by Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill or the spin twins Rahul Chahar and Shreyas Gopal – these names have left the Indian selectors spoilt for choices. The tournament provided these players a perfect platform – where opportunity truly met talent. Personalizing the experience for fansAfter the tremendous response to a reimagined VIVO IPL last year, Star upped the ante for broadcast of VIVO IPL 2019. India’s leading sports broadcaster added a host of innovative broadcast and programming to completely personalise the experience of the tournament, keeping fans at the heart of everything. The Select Dugout 2.0 for example continued to be a fan favourite as new experts, deeper analysis and more live demos ensured core cricket fans stayed ahead of the game. Those who preferred to dabble with humour, entertainment and fun along with some serious cricket were in for a treat as every Sunday was turned into a Super Funday. The feed saw kids as anchors and presenters interviewing some cricketers and Bollywood personalities whilst also indulging them in some fun and games through the season. The Super Funday feed was viewed by 160 mn people.  The regional customised feeds were viewed by 194 mn*** viewers for a total of 75 billion minutes consumption.Also Read: IPL 2019: Spotify India curates playlist to celebrate finalWomen’s T20 Challenge breaks recordsTouted by many as the impetus women’s cricket needed, Star Sports scaled up the broadcast of the Women’s T20 Challenge to help ensure more and more fans tune-in for the games. The result of the same is quite evident with the response from the fans. The first game of the Women’s T20 Challenge between Supernovas and Trailblazers led by Team India T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur and left-handed opener Smriti Mandhana saw the highest reach for any Women’s T20 game at 41 mn viewers. The total reach for the four games stood at 74 mn viewers.The Big invite for the grand FinalePrior to the much-awaited VIVO IPL 2019 grand finale between two of the most successful VIVO IPL teams – MI and CSK, second edition of#SelectDugoutDebate was closely contested with predictions on ‘Who will win world’s toughest T20 finals?’ from Star Sports Select Experts. The Presidential style debate moderated by veteran journalist Rajdeep Sardesai was broadcast on India Today TV and Star Sports Network.The #SelectDugoutDebate reached 4.3 mn viewers. There is no doubt that the IPL finale which saw Mumbai Indians winning the title for a historic 4th time was indeed a thriller. There was no shortage of action, reactions, drama and glamour on the field and to add more glamour to the broadcast of the grand finale, Star Sports hosted Bollywood Super Stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif to be a part of the proprietary show #CricketLive. Salman Khan who did commentary on the Super Funday feed during the grand finale spoke about his love for MS Dhoni and how cricket is an integral part of his daily life despite his hectic schedule.Also Read: IPL 2019: Hotstar registers 300+ mn visitors, 74% growthICC Cricket World Cup 2019 next #CricketKaCrown Starting May 24th, all the warm matches will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network. #CricketLive the networks flagship preshow is back for all the warm up matches with LIVE broadcast beginning at 1.30 pm. #SelectDugout will also be back for two India matches played against New Zealand and Bangladesh on May 25th and May 28th, respectively.Starting May 30th, the tournament will be broadcast LIVE on the Star Sports Network.

Enter Your Email Address I aim to get rich from FTSE 100 stocks by following this simple strategy Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. I reckon FTSE 100 stocks remain one of the best ways to build serious long-term wealth for my future, for one simple reason. Dividends.The index of top British blue-chips pays some of the most generous dividends in the world, and could help me get rich enough to retire with a degree of comfort, although I know this isn’t ever guaranteed.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Many investors underestimate the power of dividends. They fail to see how those apparently small payouts add up over time. New research from Interactive Investor confirms what I’ve believed for years. Reinvesting dividends from FTSE 100 stocks is a winnerSome will look at the FTSE 100’s headline level and think it hasn’t done much for two decades. The index spiked to 6,930 on 31 December 1999, at the height of the tech boom, and trades only slightly higher at around 7,125 today. In growth terms, it appears to have delivered little. But that’s an illusion.FTSE 100 stocks will build my wealthFirst, most people will have invested when the FTSE 100 was trading at much lower levels. The index fell to around 3,500 in 2003, after the dotcom crash. If I’d bought an index tracker at that time, I’d have doubled my money in share price growth alone.Second, wise investors will have been generating dividends and automatically reinvesting them to pick up more FTSE 100 stock. This is how I aim to get rich from equities.Interactive Investor’s head of markets, Richard Hunter, has crunched some numbers and found that from 1986 to 4 June 2021, FTSE 100 stocks have delivered price growth of 400%. Once you include reinvested dividends, the total return jumps to 1,827%.Hunter pins this on the power of compound interest. He explains this with a simple equation. An initial investment of just £5,000 would grow to just under £4m after 70 years, assuming an average total return of 10% a year.Of course, 70 years is a long time, but it won’t be at all unusual for people to invest for 40 or 50 years. Especially now that fewer purchase annuities at retirement, and leave their money invested in stocks and shares via drawdown. That’s what I plan to do, which gives me plenty of time for my reinvested FTSE 100 dividends to grow.There are some great dividend yields out thereDespite last year’s dividend cull, FTSE 100 stocks still offer some tremendous yields. Asset manager M&G and British American Tobacco both yield more than 7%. Insurers Aviva, Legal & General Group and Phoenix Group Holdings yield around 6.5%. National Grid, GlaxoSmithKline, BP and Rio Tinto pay income of around 5.5%.These are solid British companies, but this doesn’t mean they’re risk-free. As we saw last year, dividend payments can be cut as well as increased. I’d invest in around a dozen FTSE 100 stocks, to spread the risk, or a simple FTSE 100 tracker. The index should yield 3.8% this year.As Hunter points out, there will be stock market drops along the way, but the direction of travel is upwards. FTSE 100 stocks have recovered from the Black Monday crash in 1987, the dotcom boom and bust, the great financial crisis of 2007/2008, and now Covid-19.last_img read more

The ins and outs of the Bath drugs scandal

first_imgFriday Jul 31, 2009 The ins and outs of the Bath drugs scandal Amid one of the biggest drug scandals in rugby history, former Bath trio Michael Lipman, Alex Crockett, and Andrew Higgins face a Rugby Football Union hearing over their alleged use of prohibited substances. They are accused of conduct which is prejudicial to the interests of the sport due to a number of charges, including the consumption of prohibited substances, and refusing to undergo drug tests while under contract at Bath.While other similarly accused professional athletes readily submit themselves to substance abuse treatment, all three resigned from the club suddenly, but have vowed to fight the charges. “This is a matter that we take very seriously and will do everything possible in order to clear our names,” they said in a joint statement. The hearing decision is expected to be heard on Monday. Earlier in the month, fellow Bath player and former Australian international Justin Harrison was suspended for 8 months after admitting to cocaine use. Harrison was released early from his contract prior to a misconduct hearing following a London party which ended in him being punched in the face. He was in line for a 18 month ban, but the way he dealt with himself subsequently, and his admission of guilt were taken into consideration. In February of this year England prop Matt Stevens was handed a two year ban after a doping test showed that he had used cocaine. Stevens too admitted his guilt, and is now attending regular counselling sessions for a drug problem. Clearly it’s not worth it.

They are supported by a few trees with large stems such as Scots pine, magnolia.The project has been approved by the Architect of the Buildings of France, which supports the City of Architecture and Heritage, and by the APP, an association for the protection of the Parc des Princes district, which brings together residents.Save this picture!SectionThe House was designed around a vertical circulation core extending over five floors, from the basement to the roof terrace and developing concentrically. The main programmatic spaces of the house spread like successive layers of a tree, from the central circulation core, its heart to the facetted exterior façade, its bark. The tree metaphor also works in cross-section, where the soils are supported by a branched tubular structure. This structure is designed as a three-dimensional matrix that becomes the exoskeleton, also allowing the reading of the different layers.Save this picture!SectionThis metaphor is parallel to the programmatic demand for an ecological house. It is intelligent, connected to the urban network and home automation. It also uses underground water systems to provide heating and energy.The historical context of the house is important, as it continues the architectural tradition of experimental housing in the area, created by architects in the 1920s and 1930s. One of the most famous neighbours is the Porte Molitor building in Le Corbusier.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeProject gallerySee allShow lessDorte Mandrup Selected to Create the Hinge, a Landmark City Gate to Aarhus’ Newest U…Architecture NewsWood Design & Building Award Winners AnnouncedArchitecture News Share Connected House / Jakob + Macfarlane ArchitectsSave this projectSaveConnected House / Jakob + Macfarlane Architects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957580/connected-house-jakob-plus-macfarlane-architects Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY” Architects: Jakob + Macfarlane Architects Area Area of this architecture project Connected House / Jakob + Macfarlane Architects Francelast_img read more

Revolution and proletarian democracy

first_imgA socialist revolution is an uprising of the proletariat — the working class, those who do not own the property necessary to run a business but must instead work for someone else. A socialist revolution is an awakening that causes the mass of workers to resist their oppression. In order for this outburst of energy to create revolutionary change, the working class must have a way of expressing that energy politically. Historically, that political form is the creation of a new democracy for the working class. This new working-class democracy exists both separately — and in opposition to — the existing capitalist political system.This new political system is meant to represent the interests of the working class and the oppressed. It is composed of, and run by, members of the working class to carry out their interests. As Russian revolutionary leader V.I. Lenin described:“What is the class composition of this other government? It consists of the proletariat and the peasants. … What is the political nature of this government? It is a revolutionary dictatorship, i.e., a power directly based on revolutionary seizure, on the direct initiative of the people from below, and not on a law enacted by a centralized state power. It is an entirely different kind of power from the one that generally exists in the parliamentary bourgeois-democratic republics of the usual type still prevailing in the advanced countries of Europe and America.” (tinyurl.com/y7aldeq5)Deep organizingIf the emergence of a new working-class political system is necessary for revolution, it is important to understand that this system does not form spontaneously. This system, wherever it has emerged, is forged by intense organizational labor.The primary problem for the working class is not capitalism per se; it is division. The members of the working class far outnumber the capitalist class. If the only problem faced by workers were oppression by capitalists, then those capitalists could easily be overthrown in a single evening by the collective action of the working class. But collective action is easier to describe than to undertake. The working class in most countries, especially the U.S., is not united. It is divided along many lines including — but not limited to — race, gender, sexuality, sexual preference, disability, age and citizenship status. The capitalist class does everything it can to reinforce these divisions so that workers do not see their common interests as a class.If the primary problem of the working class is division, then the primary task of revolutionaries is organization. In order to create a working-class democracy, that class must be united through intensive organizing efforts. As the most class-conscious members of the working class, revolutionary socialists are obligated to take on the work of organizing. We must sew up the tears in the fabric of our class. Only then can a working-class democracy be constructed.Deep organizing is the process of political agitation, education and organization. Political agitation means that workers, on an individual level, must be outraged by the oppression they face, rather than resigned to it. Agitation explains to workers that their problems are not an inevitable consequence of the structure of the world, but result from deliberate choices made by the oppressor. Political education is necessary for identifying, in the clearest terms, exactly who the oppressors are — the capitalists and the violent state agents in their service — and how precisely workers can best resist them. Organization is the process of building political structures. In a revolutionary context, that structure is working- class democracy.Dual powerWhat happens when the working class is organized into a democratic political structure? What happens to the capitalist political structure which exists to manage society’s economic exploitation? Can these two systems co-exist? They cannot. A situation where two rival political systems exist in the same country is inherently unstable. If one government is legitimate, the other cannot be. But who determines legitimacy? It is not a matter of passing laws (two rival governments can both pass laws which directly contradict each other). What determines legitimacy is the backing of the people.Rule by the working class is actual democracy. It is rule by the majority over the minority. The capitalist system is the reverse — rule by the minority (capitalists) over the majority (workers) — and it is therefore inherently undemocratic. As political organization increases and more and more workers are brought into the working-class political structure, the legitimacy of the working-class structure increases. As political legitimacy is a zero-sum game, the capitalist system will begin to lose its legitimacy in turn. Only one political system can survive. A study of social revolutions shows that this process plays out whenever the organized working class and oppressed rise against their oppressors.The SovietsThe Russian word for “council” is soviet. In the early 20th century, the czarist government of Russia grudgingly permitted the creation of councils, or Soviets, of the working class and peasantry. These Soviets took up local political questions. Initially, this was a reform meant to placate the masses by giving them a political outlet for their frustrations. But with the advent of World War I and the rise of working-class organization, the nature of the Soviets changed.Class-conscious workers engaged in intense organizing drives, and this led to a rise in the number of Soviets. Workers formed Soviets within their workplaces and networked those political bodies to larger, citywide Soviets in places like Petrograd. Even the simple act of participating in a workers’ Soviet had a radicalizing effect on workers. The demands of workers grew as they felt they had some control over their workplace or their government. As radicalization increased, so did the influence of the Bolsheviks, the revolutionary wing of the Russian Social Democratic Workers’ Party. At the same time, the rising power of the Soviets meant a decline in power first for the Czar — leading to the 1917 February Revolution and his abdication — and then for the capitalist Provisional Government that replaced him. Besides industrial workers, soldiers in the Petrograd garrison and sailors of Russia’s fleet also joined and participated in the Soviets. The sailors from the Kronstadt base near Petrograd were particularly revolutionary and were the first to push for an overthrow of the capitalist government and the establishment of a socialist republic. This participation of soldiers and sailors placed an armed force at the disposal of the revolutionary government.As Lenin wrote a few months after the February Revolution:“The working masses constitute the vast majority of the population, they control the Soviets, they are aware of their power as a majority, they see everywhere the promise of a ‘democratized’ life, they know that democracy is the rule of the majority over the minority (and not the reverse — which is what the capitalists want) … they cannot but aspire toward supreme rule by the people, i.e., the majority of the population, toward affairs being managed according to the will of the worker majority as opposed to the capitalist minority. … There is no other way out. Either we go back to supreme rule by the capitalists, or forward toward real democracy, towards majority decisions. This dual power cannot last long.” (tinyurl.com/y7jvezpe)The Russian workers did indeed go forward. In the October Revolution of 1917, the Bolsheviks and the Soviets overthrew the Provisional Government. The revolutionary government that arose, which eventually came to be known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), set an example for the world of what working-class political power could achieve.Red star over ChinaIn China, an entirely new dimension of dual power developed when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was forced to openly rebel against the ruling landlord-capitalist Kuomintang Party (KMT). That dimension was the control of physical territory by workers, peasants and the CCP.During the 1920s, the workers’ movement in China’s major cities grew rapidly, driven in large part by the organizing efforts of the CCP. At the same time, peasants in the rural countryside were organizing to overthrow the domination of oppressive landlords. Eventually, the CCP backed the peasant movement as well. In 1928, Mao and other members of the CCP established the Jiangxi Soviet in the remote, mountainous border region between the Jiangxi and Fujian provinces. The creation of not just a working-class and peasant government, but a sovereign territory required a tremendous amount of political organizing as a precondition. As Mao stated:“[T]he regions where China’s Red political power has first emerged and is able to last for a long time have not been those unaffected by the democratic revolution … but regions … where the masses of workers, peasants and soldiers rose in great numbers in the course of the bourgeois-democratic revolution of 1926 and 1927. In many parts of these provinces trade unions and peasant associations were formed on a wide scale, and many economic and political struggles were waged by the working class and the peasantry against the landlord class and the bourgeoisie.” (tinyurl.com/ycvl7xwp)The Jiangxi Soviet initiated radical land reform policies. Peasants enacted these changes through Peasant Associations, which were political organizations much like the workers’ and peasants’ Soviets of the Russian Revolution. Throughout the course of the revolution, the CCP was able to expand its physical territory through military means and its political influence through organizational means. Whenever the CCP’s military, the Red Army, pushed KMT soldiers out of a village or county, CCP organizers immediately followed — establishing Peasant Associations, reducing rent and fighting against the oppression of women.Vietnam and the strategic hamletBeyond the creation of liberated base areas, the CCP had also realized that the process of revolution — of organizing working-class democracy — created lasting social changes that remained even when the enemy recaptured CCP territory. This insight was later seized on by revolutionaries in the Vietnamese National Liberation Front (NLF) during their struggle against U.S. imperialism.The basic organizational unit of Vietnamese workers and peasants was the Village Committee. Village Committees executed a radical agrarian social policy. That policy included political education, redistribution of land that had been controlled by wealthy landlords, rent reduction and punishing those who lent money at exorbitant rates. The NLF also worked to increase agricultural production, open schools, punish corruption and eliminate brutal civil servants and village leaders. The Village Committee, like the Peasants Association in China and the workers’ Soviets in Russia, was a democracy of the peasants and proletariat.Beyond village administration, Liberation Associations were also created so that various groups could use the struggle to combat the oppression they faced. There were Farmers’ Liberation Associations, Women’s Liberation Associations, Youth Liberation Associations and Student Liberation Associations, among others. The Farmers’ Associations had the most impact in expanding the NLF because of the rural nature of Vietnam. Women’s Liberation Associations caused the deepest social change, and the NLF took a very hard-line stance in support of women’s rights.Most remarkable about the organizational efforts of the NLF was that they often occurred directly under the nose of the U.S. imperialists and their puppet governments. In the early 1960s, the U.S. and its puppet Diem regime instituted the “strategic hamlet” program. This was a system of concentration camps by another name. Large villages were turned into highly militarized security zones with checkpoints and barbed-wire fences around the border.Nevertheless, NLF organizers were able to access these strategic hamlets and continue organizing the revolution. By day, villagers obeyed the puppet government. But at night, NLF organizers provided political agitation, education and organization. Barbed-wire fencing could not block the spread of the revolution across South Vietnam. As in China, the social changes caused by the revolution could not be undone by the imperialists merely seizing or maintaining military control.MINNEAPOLIS, MN – MAY 28: Protesters cheer as the Third Police Precinct burns behind them on May 28, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As unrest continues after the death of George Floyd, police abandoned the precinct building, allowing protesters to set fire to it. (Photo by Stephen Maturen/Getty Images)George FloydToday, the U.S. is in the midst of a rebellion that might transform into a revolution. Which class is in motion? It is the Black working class — and those who would struggle alongside them in solidarity — spurred by the intolerable violence perpetrated by the police on a daily basis. According to the New York Times, the Black Lives Matter protests may be the largest in U.S. history. (July 3)This is not the first time that a Black-led rebellion has engulfed the country. Why is it that the Black struggle causes such dramatic shifts in the political landscape of the U.S.? It is because of the essential role that the oppression of Black people has played in the process of capitalist wealth production.The U.S. capitalist system could not have come into being, nor can it continue to maintain itself, without the aid of white supremacy and the oppression of Black people. Likewise, anti-Black racism could not continue in the face of the powerful social movements that seek to end it, without the power and influence of the capitalist ruling class — which stokes racism in order to divide the working class, suppress wages and maintain political control.Any working-class revolution in the U.S. will need to directly challenge the status of the Black working class as super-oppressed workers, as well as the violent repression suffered by the Black community at the hands of the police.In the U.S., as in every country where the working class and the oppressed have risen up against capitalist exploitation, the only means of creating these social changes is through the organization of working-class democracy. Over the past several years, there has been a rise in Workers’ Assemblies, bringing together members of the working class to struggle against oppression.This expansion of real democracy must continue and must accelerate. The struggle of the Black working class — as well as the task of uniting with white, other people of color, the gender-oppressed, the disabled and the able-bodied, elders and undocumented workers — can only be advanced through the organization of Workers’ Assemblies along the soviet model. And that level of unity can only be achieved through deep organizing. This is the inescapable duty of revolutionary socialists during a period of monumental change.Can dual power exist in the U.S.?The creation of working-class democracy inherently creates a legitimacy crisis for the capitalist ruling class. Only American exceptionalism could lead one to believe that the ruling class of the U.S. would be uniquely invulnerable to such a crisis should the workers of this country organize against their oppressors.A unified working class would in the first place be totally destabilizing for the capitalist exploiters. The unity of workers in the world’s largest economy would likely result in crashing profits for the ruling class. A unified working class struggling to win better wages and benefits could shut down entire sections of the economy. If the capitalist ruling class were to give in to worker demands, capitalist profits would plummet, causing a ripple effect for capitalists around the world.Politically, the capitalist government of the U.S. is already held in low esteem. It has proven totally incapable of handling the challenges of modern society, shown most acutely by its failed response to the COVID pandemic. Anyone who still remains under the false impression that the U.S. government is not completely driven by capitalist greed would have those notions quickly disabused by the rise of a true working-class democracy. There is no doubt that the working class here would come to the same conclusions as the Russian working class a century ago. Our options would be to accept the “supreme rule of the capitalists” or “go forward toward real democracy.”It is only the power of the state, which some on the left still grudgingly respect and fear — the power of the police to crush social movements with ruthless violence. But where were these mighty stormtroopers six weeks ago when freedom fighters in cities across the country set police vehicles and precincts aflame? Where was the power of the state when workers reappropriated corporate wealth by smashing store windows and taking what they needed? The police, like so many institutions in the U.S., are in decay despite the influx of expensive military equipment. The current rebellion has shown the limitations of the coercive power of the state to stop even spontaneous and disorganized resistance. It has no hope of controlling a united working class acting decisively. Under these conditions, the emergence of a workers’ state — the working class acting in its own self-defense — is not just possible, but likely.RevolutionWe stand on the precipice of a revolution that will be both rapid in its expansion and all-encompassing in its scope. The capitalist ruling class has never faced a direct challenge to its hegemony in the heart of the U.S. empire since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The impact of such a clash will have earth-shattering repercussions. The outcome of this conflict will be determined by the will of the working class — the will to organize, the will to struggle, the will to win.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Union of India & Ors., (2006) 8 SCC 1, for systemic police reforms. In the said case, the Top Court had directed the state Governments to set up Police Complaints Authorities (PAC), with some independent members overseeing the functioning of the authority, till framing of appropriate legislations. These suggestions however, either have not been implemented by the state governments or the state legislations pertaining to it are under challenge before the Supreme Court. Amicus Curiae, Senior Advocate Raju Ramachandran, has thus moved the Top Court suggesting the following: The jurisdictional High Courts constitute dedicated Benches to determine the extent to which compliance by executive orders has been made by the concerned States/UTs. For this purpose, the High Courts would have to take the assistance of an Amicus Curiae and also appoint Expert Committees to verify compliance at the ground level. The High Courts may be requested to complete the exercise of determining compliance within a period of six months.Individual applications pertaining to the States/UTs concerned may be dealt with by the said Benches in keeping with the letter and spirit of the directions given by this Hon’ble Court in its judgment dated 22.9.2006. Further he has requested the Court to fix an “early and actual date of hearing” for the adjudication by itself of: Writ Petition no. 286/2013 in which the question of the constitutional validity of the concerned State legislations is involved, andContempt Petition No. 235/2014 in the present Writ Petition in which the validity of the relevant provisions of the IPS (Cadre) Amendment Rules 2014 is involved. In the case of Prakash Singh, besides directing all the states to set up Police Establishment Boards, the Supreme Court had fixed tenure for DGPs, and recommended constitution of State Security Commission and Police Complaints Authorities at state and district levels, to inquire into allegations of serious misconduct and abuse of power by police personnel. As mentioned in amicus’ application, “The Court’s directions in the judgment are unimplemented/ not fully implemented. A final determination by this Hon’ble Court with regard to compliance with the directions contained in the main judgment is yet to take place.” As on date, the validity of the 17 state legislations, which have since been passed, is under consideration before the Supreme Court in a petition moved by Senior Advocate and Amicus Curiae, Harish Salve. In the said petitions, the Supreme Court is considering the issue of whether the said legislations conform to the essential principles laid down in its judgment in the Prakash Singh case. In addition to the above legislations, the Central Government had issued the IPS (Cadre) Amendment Rules 2014. The same is also pending challenge before the Supreme Court. The application has been filed through AoR Archana Pathak Dave.Click Here To Download ApplicationRead Application Next Storylast_img read more
