After 7 yrs, MHADA back with lottery of 108 shops

After a lottery of nearly 820 homes, Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s (MHADA) Mumbai Board is all set to introduce an e-auction of 108 commercial premises, for which the process was initiated on Friday when MHADA published a tender seeking a bank through which it can complete the whole process.Of the total 108 commercial establishments, 36 are in Pratiksha Nagar in Sion, four in Mazgaon, 14 in Vinoba Bhave Nagar in Kurla, five in Swadeshi Mill in Kurla, seven in Mankhurd, five in Powai, 11 in Mulund, one in Jogeshwari, four in Shastri Nagar in Goregaon, one in Siddharth Nagar in Goregaon and the remaining 20 in Charkop in Kandivili.The process of finalising the bank is expected to be complete by the first week of January. On Friday, MHADA’s Mumbai Board issued a tender inviting the expression of interest from nationalised, scheduled and commercial banks for a total solution provider for an e-auction of the shops.A senior official from MHADA’s Mumbai Board said, “We are looking for a bank that will be holding the e-auction of the shops spread over Mumbai that belong to MHADA. After the bank is finalised we will carry out the e-auction.”The offset price for the 36 shops in Pratiksha Nagar is Rs 11.45 crore while for the one shop in Jogeshwari, it is Rs 41.09 lakh. The total offset price of the 108 shops is Rs 49.93 crore. While the last such MHADA lottery for commercial premises was held in 2010, this is the first time that the Authority will be holding an e-auction of commercial premises. Until now, the MHADA had always held a manual auction.Apart from this, the MHADA also recently started the construction of buildings in Wadala, where it will be constructing nearly 280 homes in the affordable segment. The Authority is trying to get these homes constructed at the earliest because the MHADA wants the homes to be a part of the forthcoming lottery. In the previous lottery, which was held in November this year, the Authority received a lot of flak because it had only eight homes in the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) segment.WHAT’S ON ANVILProcess of finalising the bank is expected to be complete by the first week of January.

Versova beach clean-up resumes, Aaditya Thackeray to join in

After two weeks, the Versova beach clean-up was back in action on Saturday, with lawyer Afroz Shah and volunteers visiting Siddharth Nagar slums to check the status of a nullah that connects to the beach. Yuva Sena Chief Aaditya Thackeray too promised to join the operation on Sunday.According to Shah, he visited the slum to talk to the residents about the garbage thrown by them into the drain. “Siddharth Nagar is one of the slums through which the nallah connects the Versova beach. The aim of meeting the residents was not to create awareness but to have a conversation with the people to talk about garbage which they throw and later it gets choked inside the nullah. Many people came forward. People have a casual approach of throwing garbage in the nallah which needs to be changed by training them properly. I will be doing follow up rounds at Siddharth Nagar to continue to train them.”Thackeray who had met with Shah after he suspended his drive tweeted, “Spoke to Afroz I’m joining him this coming Sunday to clean up. I’m so glad we both kept our promises- me to assist him and his promise to not give up. This is for Mumbai and our Planet.”During the clean-up drive on Saturday, volunteers collected 40,000 kg of garbage from the Versova beach.Saha said, “Marine litter is a global problem. It can be handled in different stages by- making people to stop littering, cleaning of nallah, cleaning of beaches and provoking citizens to step forward to clean the surrounding.”IN FULL SWINGDuring the clean-up drive on Saturday, volunteers collected 40,000 kg of garbage from the Versova beach. Afroz Shah, the face of the efforts, also visited slum dwellers in the vicinity and talked to them about handling of garbage

UP floods claim 72 lives, 21 lakh people hit in 24 districts

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The overall flood situation in Uttar Pradesh remained grim today with three more deaths pushing the toll to 72, the state relief commissioner’s office said. Over 20 lakh people have been hit by the current spell of floods in 24 districts of the state. “The death toll in the floods has reached 72 in the state. 2,688 villages in 24 districts are flooded,” the relief commissioner’s office said here citing a flood report. It said that 43,602 people have take shelter in relief camps in the affected districts of eastern UP, whipped by the raging waters of the rivers emanating from Nepal. Reports reaching here said that Army choppers, NDRF and PAC (flood) jawans continued relief and rescue operations round-the-clock in the severely hit areas of the flood- affected districts of the state. The release of water in the rivers emanating from Nepal and incessant rains impeded rescue work and evacuation of people to safer areas, they said. Twenty-one companies of the NDRF, 30 of the PAC (flood), two choppers of the Indian Air Force (IAF) and several columns of the Army were working day and night to save lives and properties in the affected areas. A Central Water Commission report here said the Sharda was flowing above the red mark at Palia Kalan and near the danger mark at Shardanagar while the Ghaghra was flowing above the red mark at Elgin Bridge, Ayodhya and Turtipar (Ballia). The Rapti was also flowing well above the red mark at Rigauli and Birdghat (Gorakhpur), while the Budhi Rapti was above the danger level at Kakrahi (Siddharth Nagar), the Rohin and the Quano are flowing above danger mark at Trimohini Ghat (Mahrajganj) and Chandradeep Ghat (Gonda), it said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

UP floods, Gorakhpur tragedy galvanises oppn SP into action

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The situation arising out of the devastating floods in Uttar Pradesh and the death of scores of children in a state-run hospital in Gorakhpur have suddenly galvanised the opposition Samajwadi Party into action. Thrown out of power by the saffron surge which saw BJP and its allies pocketing 325 of the 403 Assembly seats earlier this year, the SP is desperately trying to regain its lost moorings, said a party insider. The party, embattled by the recent resignations of some of its MLCs and strains with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s uncle Shivpal Yadav, is going the extra mile to strike a rapport with the masses, he said. The death of over 60 children between August 7 and August 11 in the BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur, allegedly due to shortage of oxygen supply, came as an opportunity for Akhilesh to directly connect to the people. He not only visited the victims’ kin, but also announced compensation of Rs 2 lakh from the party fund to the family of each deceased. The former chief minister hit out at the Yogi Adityanath government for his “failure in his home district” and constituted a team of SP leaders to visit the hospital and submit its report to corner the government over its alleged “insensitivity”. “The government is insensitive. Government is trying to run away from responsibilities and hence accusing the opposition of politicising the situation. The truth is being overlooked by the government, which has already said that the death was not due to oxygen shortage,” Akhilesh said. The SP has also demanded a compensation of Rs 20 lakh each for families of victims. Taking note of the serious condition arising out of floods, the SP has constituted teams in different districts to be headed by its senior leaders to remain on “ground for the needy”. Flood relief committees are being constituted in badly affected districts like Barabanki, Gonda, Siddharth Nagar, Mahrajganj, Balrampur and Bahraich to provide relief to those affected by floods. “Our party president is sensitive towards woes of the people. He want party cadre to help people and highlight insensitivity of the BJP government, which is not addressing core issues,” party spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said. “Be it lathicharge on shiksha mitra and police job seekers in Lucknow, or handling of Gorakhpur issue, the government stands thoroughly exposed before the people,” he said. The party will continue to raise the voice of people and will not tolerate “suppression” by the government, he said. Undeterred by the recent exit of five party MLCs – Sarojini Agarwal, Ashok Bajpai, Yashwant Singh, Bukkal Nawab and Ambika Chowdhury, Akhilesh has said that those who want to leave the party were “free” to do so. “I also want to see who are with me in bad times. Those who want to leave are free (to go),” he said. Though of these five legislators, Ambika – an MLC from SP quota – has already left the party during assembly polls, the four others were close to the party chief and Akhilesh had personally visited Bukkal Nawab’s place during Eid. All the four MLCs joined the BJP, which Akhilesh said is indulging in alleged “political corruption”.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

I-T Dept raids on govt functionaries in UP, Uttarakhand

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> The Income Tax Department on Wednesday conducted raids at the residence and office of four government functionaries in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. As per sources, the officials raided the residence/ business premises of Siddharth Nagar, a local body chairman, where they recovered Rs. 10 crore (approx) undisclosed cash.

The IT Department officials raided the house address of an Uttarakhand PSU official, which led to evidence of misuse of position for seeking illegal gratification in collusion with contractor. However, the IT Department also conducted searches relating to a group mainly involved in chit-fund businesses at 43 premises in Tamil Nadu, 29 in Kerala and six in Karnataka. Earlier in April, the Income Tax Department carried out raids on properties belonging to a Karnataka minister as well as Karnataka Congress’ women’s wing president in various locations across the state.

Akhilesh dares PM Modi to debate over development work in UP

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> While ridiculing Prime Minister Narendra Modi?s ?Mann Ki Baat? radio address, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday said people are eager to hear some ?Kaam Ki Baat? from him and dared the former to have a debate on the development done by Samjawadi Party. ?He said his ?Mann Ki Baat?, but the people of Uttar Pradesh are waiting for him to do some ?Kaam Ki Baat?. Samajwadi?s have worked for the development without any discrimination and I am ready for a debate on it. It is up to Prime Minister he can choose the destination and let have a debate on the development done by our party,? he said in a press briefing here. He also hits back at the Prime Minister for his ‘Diwali, Ramzan bhed-bhav’ remark and said that it was his party who provided the maximum amount of electricity to every region in their tenure. ?They say that electricity is not being provided in Gorakhpur. I would ask him to hold any wire in the region and then say, that the electricity is flowing through it or not. They are intentionally trying to raise these issues as they don?t have any other thing to discuss,? he said. Further taking jibe at the Prime Minister?s promises to take initiative to raise the standards of the farmers, Akhilesh said that it has been three years and till now no action has been taken on this matter. ?I made sure that land for setting up of AIIMS was allocated in Gorakhpur. I want to ask when will that AIIMS be ready? The people of Uttar Pradesh will once again vote for the Samajwadi Party, they will not get influenced by the false promises made by the Prime Minister,? he said. Earlier in the day, Akhilesh said the alliance between the Congress and Samajwadi Party is a tie-up between two youngsters, adding this would change the course of politics both at the national as well as state level. ?This is not an alliance between two families, it is an alliance between two youngsters, who would change the course of politics both at the national and state level,? Akhilesh said while addressing a rally here ahead of the sixth-phase of Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.

Gangrape case, a political conspiracy by BJP: Prajapati

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Hours after the Supreme Court ordered registration of an FIR against Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati in a case of alleged gangrape and sexual harassment, the senior SP leader saw in it a “political conspiracy”. “It is a political conspiracy at the behest of the BJP to tarnish my image,” he said. Prajapati said he did not know the woman who had levelled charges against him. “However, I will honour the judgement of the apex court,” said Prajapati, who has been re-nominated by the ruling party as a candidate in Amethi, which goes to polls in the fifth phase on February 27. Prajapati, who was sacked by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, was reinducted in his council of ministers but was removed from the mining department and given transport portfolio. The apex court, earlier in the day, directed the Uttar Pradesh Police to file a status report in the case within eight weeks. A 35-year-old woman had accused Prajapati of raping her when she met him almost three years ago. He also took some obscene photos of the victim and then threatened her that he would make the photos public and raped her for the past two years, according to the complaint. The woman, who is from Chitrakoot, alleged she was raped by Prajapati and others for two years on the pretext of getting a plum position within the Samajwadi Party. She has also alleged her daughter was sexually harassed too. The woman had moved the apex court after the police in Uttar Pradesh did not register the FIR. At a rally in Siddharth Nagar, BJP president Amit Shah took a jibe at the Samajwadi Party for painting a “false picture” regarding its clean image, and alleged that the state occupied the top spot in murders and crime against women. UP BJP chief Kesav Prasad Maurya alleged that Akhilesh shielded criminals and rapists and because of this the apex court had to intervene. Prajapati is a close associate of SP patron Mulayam Singh Yadav and his tenure as the mining minister was under cloud, prompting the Allahabad High Court to order a CBI probe into the allegations of wrong doings against him.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
