    Imran Khan sworn in as Pakistan’s 22nd Prime Minister HIGHLIGHTS: New innings begin for country


    Imran Khan becomes Pakistan PM: Imran, who outvoted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shahbaz Sharif in the PM election a day earlier, was administered the oath by President Mamnoon Hussain.







    The party of the 65-year-old cricketer-turned-politician emerged as the single largest side in the National Assembly in the July 25 general elections.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cricketer-turned-politician and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan was sworn in as the 22nd Prime Minister of Pakistan on Saturday in presence of several leaders and cricketers. The oath-taking ceremony was administered by President Mamnoon Hussain at the President House in Islamabad.

    Those in attendance include Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, Wasim Akram, actor Javed Sheikh, Punjab governor designate Chaudhry Sarwar, Punjab Assembly speaker Pervez Elahi, Ramiz Raja, caretaker prime minister Nasir-ul-Mulk, PTI leaders, Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Zubair Mahmood Hayat, and Chief of Air Staff Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan.

    The election in the 15th National Assembly was held on July 25 and results were declared the next day in which Khan’s PTI emerged as the largest party securing 116 seats. Opposition parties Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) won 64 and
    43 seats respectively. However, Khan did not have the majority to form the government as a total of 172 votes were needed for that in
    the 342-member lower house of Parliament.

    On Friday, of the total National Assembly members, 176 voted in favour of Khan, while his opponent, Shahbaz received 96 votes. Hence, making the way clear for the PTI chief to become the new PM.

    ‘We found him sitting with his wife’s body’: NDRF men recall tragic rescue op in Kerala




    NDRF personnel recount a distress call they received from Pothissery in Thrissur district of an aged couple, who needed immediate rescue.

    As their bus surged forward in the flood waters that still inundated National Highway 47, people standing on top of buildings on either side of the roads waved at them. Their orange uniforms have become a familiar sight for many people in Kerala. People know that these are the heroes from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) travelling from one place to another to rescue those in distress.

    But inside the bus, the mood is grim as the NDRF personnel recall the struggles of the last few days. On Friday evening, four members of this battalion from Tamil Nadu’s Arakkonam had undertaken a rescue mission that officer Biju says has scarred them deeply. A distress call from Pothissery in Thrissur district had said that an aged couple had to be rescued from a house that had completely flooded. The distress message also said that the wife may have died two days ago, but they were unsure.

    "We tried different routes, but the current was too strong. Finally, by evening, the locals told us about a route. Four of us went on a rubber boat for around two km. Then we reached a dry spot and people in the taluk arranged a truck. We were taken to Pothissery which was again 2 or 3 km away," Biju recalls.

    Karnataka floods: Heavy rains cause floods, landslides in Kodagu; over 800 rescued from flood-hit district

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bengaluru: Heavy rain leading to landslides and flooding continued to lash Karnataka's Kodagu district, chief minister HD Kumaraswamy said on Saturday.

    "Rains have been causing massive damage in Kodagu. The state officials, along with Indian Army troops, Navy divers are carrying out rescue and relief operations on war-footing," Kumaraswamy told reporters in Bengaluru.

    Kodagu is one of the districts in the southern state worst hit by the south-west monsoon rains since June first week. The landslides and heavy rain have claimed six lives in the district since Thursday, the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) said. According to the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC), the district received a maximum rainfall of up to 25.3 cm and an average rainfall of 11.9 cm over the past 24 hours.

    Located in the Western Ghats mountain ranges, the incessant rain has been causing landslips across the region, making rescue operations difficult.

    4,100 waterbodies, but Chennai still thirsty




    On condition of anonymity, the expert said that currently the piped water supply in the city could be around 50 to 60 LPCD, which is quite minimal, the issue being the availability of water.

    CHENNAI : 4,100 waterbodies, but metro still thirsty Chennai Corporation’s target was to provide 135 litres per capita per day (LPCD) of piped water supply by 2017 under the XIIth plan. But with the rising population and stress on water resources due to irregular monsoon, Chennai Metro Water is providing less than half, according to an expert.

    On condition of anonymity, the expert said that currently the piped water supply in the city could be around 50 to 60 LPCD, which is quite minimal, the issue being the availability of water.

    Barring the two desalination plants of 100 MLD capacity each, water in the four reservoirs — Red Hills, Chembarambakkam, Poondi and Cholavaram usually ends up in dead storage before the arrival of monsoon. While Metro Water is planning to have 750MLD of regular water supply from desalination plants, S Janakrajan, former professor of Madras Institute of development studies and President of South Asia Consortium for Inter-disciplinary water resources studies questions the idea behind it as Chennai is set to expand to 8,878 square kilometres.

    “Do you know we have 4,100 waterbodies in Chennai. It has the largest rainfall (1300mm) when compared with Jaipur (600mm), Hyderabad (800mm) and Bengaluru (800mm). It is a water state and is a mega water shed. There is something seriously wrong if you are concentrating only on desalination plants, which if materializes will cater to two-thirds of Chennai. Somebody has to be penalised for overlooking waterbodies,” Janakrajan says.

    கேரளாவுக்கு ரூ.700 கோடி வழங்கியது ஐக்கிய அரபு எமிரேட்! - பினராயி விஜயன் உருக்கம்






    கேரள மாநிலத்தின் மறுசீரமைப்புப் பணிகள் குறித்து ஆலோசிக்க வரும் 30-ம் தேதி அனைத்துக் கட்சி கூட்டம் கூட்டப்படும் என முதல்வர் பினராயி விஜயன் அறிவித்துள்ளார்.

    கேரளாவில் கடந்த ஆகஸ்ட் 8-ம் தேதி தொடங்கிய கனமழை இரண்டு வாரங்களுக்கு மேலாகப் பெய்து மாநிலத்தை வெள்ளக் காடாக மாற்றியது. தற்போது மழையின் அளவு படிப்படியாக குறைந்து வருகிறது. ஆனாலும் வரும் 25-ம் தேதி வரை லேசான மழைப் பொழிவு இருக்கும் என வானிலை ஆய்வு மையம் தெரிவித்துள்ளது. மழை குறைந்துள்ளதால் மீட்புப் பணிகள் துரிதப்படுத்தப்பட்டுள்ளன. முகாம்களில் தங்க வைக்கப்பட்டிருந்த மக்கள் தங்கள் வீடுகளைப் பார்க்கச் செல்கின்றனர். வீடுகளில் தேங்கியிருக்கும் மழை நீர் சற்று வடியத் தொடங்கியுள்ளது. நிலச்சரிவில் சிக்கிய வீடுகள்தான் பெரும் சேதத்தை சந்தித்துள்ளன. மாநிலம் முழுவதும் சுமார் 20,000 கோடி ரூபாய் மதிப்பிலான சேதம் ஏற்பட்டுள்ளதாக பினராயி விஜயன் அறிவித்தார். வரலாறு காணாத இந்த சேதத்தால், கேரள கனமழையை தீவிர இயற்கைப் பேரிடராக மத்திய அரசு அறிவித்தது.

    Karnataka Minister flings biscuits at flood victims; Video goes viral


    Bengaluru: Karnataka Minister H D Revanna courted a controversy after a video purportedly showing him flinging biscuit packets at flood victims in a relief camp in Hassan district went viral today.

    Revanna, PWD Minister and brother of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, was seen picking biscuit packets and hurling them at the people sheltered in the relief camp.

    As the video clip went viral in the social media besides being aired by TV channels, netizens and BJP leaders termed Revanna's action as "insensitive."

    Senior BJP leader S Suresh Kumar flayed Revanna for the act. "Dear Public Works Minister, throwing biscuits (at the flood victims) is not a public work... Is it the bloated ego, uncivilised behaviour... behind throwing biscuits?" he asked in a face book post.

    Coming to the defence of his brother, Kumaraswamy said Revanna's act was not out of "arrogance."
