We did in 70 days what Cong. failed to do in 70 years: Shah

first_imgUnion Home Minister Amit Shah said in Chandigarh on Friday that by withdrawing the special status granted to Kashmir, the BJP government did something which successive Congress governments had failed to do in 70 years.At a public meeting in Jind of Haryana, Mr. Shah said Article 370 was a hurdle in the way of Sardar Patel’s dream of Akhand Bharat [one India]. “…what the Congress governments could not do in 70 years because of vote-bank politics, Modiji did it in 75 days [of his second term as Prime Minister] … abrogation of Article 370 and 35A will prove to be a milestone for the integrity of India,” he said.Mr. Shah said that with the dilution of Articles 370 and 35A, all obstacles in the path of holistic development of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh had been removed. “Such a courageous step can be taken only by those who think in terms of national interest,” he said.He said the revoking of these sections was a true tribute to the brave soldiers of Haryana who attained “martyrdom” in Kashmir. “Kashmir will now be on the path of development as there are two Union Territories of Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.The new Chief of Defence Staff post would ensure greater synergy among defence forces, he added.Setting the tone for the campaign for the Assembly election in Haryana later this year, Mr. Shah appealed to the people to vote the BJP back to power as the party had provided a corruption-free and transparent government under Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.Mr. Shah said initiatives taken by the Khattar government, be it online transfer of teachers, transparency in recruitment or the successful implementation of the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao programme, were being praised by all. The BJP governments at the Centre and in Haryana were working to ensure corruption-free governance and development.last_img read more

8 days agoNo concerns over Liverpool keeper Alisson for Man Utd return – Rivaldo

first_imgAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say No concerns over Liverpool keeper Alisson for Man Utd return – Rivaldoby Ansser Sadiq8 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBrazilian legend Rivaldo thinks that goalkeeper Alisson Becker will have no problem being on his A game if he is thrown in against Manchester United at the weekend.Alisson has been injured since he suffered a calf injury two months ago against Norwich City.But he is fully fit and in training, which means that he is contention to start the game at Old Trafford on Sunday.And Rivaldo thinks that it is a no brainer to play Alisson if he is fit.”Alisson is now fit and is set to get back on the pitch this weekend for Liverpool’s match against Manchester United,” he said, speaking to Betfair.”This is his first match in a few months and perhaps it could be a little risky to put him in to play in such a big match, but he is an experienced goalkeeper and he is certainly prepared to show his value if called upon.”Every player loves to play in these kinds of matches.”Of course, it would be better to have him fully match fit having played a few games already, but that’s not the case, however his experience and quality should be enough to mask that lack of sharpness.”He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world right now and he is used to this kind of big event, so I believe he won’t have any problems with it and he will be as solid in Liverpool’s goal as he always is.” last_img read more

Life circumstances change So should your will estate experts say

first_imgCALGARY – Estate planning expert Lynne Butler loves to tell the cautionary tale of a widow in her 80s who had six children and six real estate properties.When it came time for her to make her final wishes known, she sat at her desk and hand-wrote a will that bequeathed her home to the child who lived with her and cared for her, and carefully doled out the other parcels of mainly rural land to each of her other five grown children.What she didn’t account for was something called capital gains tax — all of the properties had gained in value over the decades and all except her principal residence (which is exempt) owed thousands of dollars in taxes. There wasn’t nearly enough cash in the estate to pay the tax bill.“Normally, (the heirs) can’t inherit the property until the tax is paid, so what actually ends up happening is that one or more of the properties gets sold to pay the tax. So someone ends up not getting their property,” said Butler.“And that’s where the fight begins, right? Whose property are you going to sell?”The widow’s dilemma is all too typical of the drama that can split families apart when poorly written or out-of-date wills legally bind the hands of an executor who has to figure out how to make the deceased’s final wishes a reality.Butler said the widow was lucky to have sought advice from an expert before it was too late.She bought life insurance — at a very high price because of her age — to provide the funds the estate would need to pay off its tax bill.Everyone should review their will every five to seven years or after every substantial life event, says Henry Villanueva, counsel for MacMillan Estate Planning in Calgary.Those life events include birth or adoption of a child or grandchild, marriage, recovery of an inheritance, children moving out of the home and loans to relatives to buy a house or pay for education, as well as death, divorce and remarriage.“When we pass — and we will pass — all of our assets are deemed to be disposed upon death, and along with this deemed disposition is an assessment for tax on the gain on assets at the point of death, to the exclusion of assets that are rolled over from spouse to spouse … or assets that automatically flow over, as when spouses jointly own property,” Villanueva said.Butler said many people draft wills when they get married and have children because they want to ensure their spouse inherits their goods and that their children, if both parents die, are sent to a chosen guardian. Many people use do-it-yourself will kits because their wishes and assets are simple.Decades later, however, the kids are out on their own and the family fortune has grown to include a home, retirement funds, bank accounts, part ownership of a vacation condo, stocks and bonds and multiple vehicles.“A lot of people make their wills when they’re married and start having kids. Then one day they realize, ‘Well, now I’ve got grandkids.’ So it’s time to update. All their kids are over 18, they don’t need guardianships any more,” Butler said.In all Canadian provinces except B.C., Alberta, Quebec and Saskatchewan, getting married revokes previous wills, which means a new will must be signed.New wills should contain a clause revoking all previous wills. Minor adjustments to a will can be made via a “codicil” or addition, although Butler said that isn’t done very often anymore.Changed circumstances could also mean changing your executor, noted Villanueva.A close relative who was able 20 or 30 years ago to handle the crucial executor duties of listing assets and liabilities, then paying the bills and distributing the remaining assets to heirs, may not have the financial acumen to do the same now with a more complicated portfolio.The original executor may now be elderly or infirm or may have moved out of province.Butler said she’s a big fan of hiring a trust company to act as executor, especially if the estate is complicated. She said a professional executor has the knowledge to shepherd the process through efficiently without any emotional baggage.The trust company’s fees will be extracted from the estate, she said, but are usually set at the same rate or lower than what a court might authorize to be paid for any executor, including a close relative, in recognition of the work involved.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitterlast_img read more

Bihar RTI activist lands in jail in connection with SCST Act

first_imgNew Delhi: Filing an RTI to get information about policy decisions is not as easy as it seems. Sometimes, you may be behind the bars for seeking information about officials in the government.In a similar case that has come to the notice, an RTI activist Hemant Kumar has been sent to judicial custody in connection with SC/ST atrocities act case for seeking information regarding a top IPS officer in Bihar. Kumar, who dubbed the charges as fabricated, had also urged chief information commissioner (CIC), New Delhi to defer the scheduled video conferencing. The conferencing was scheduled for March 18 in regard to his query about MSc degree of the officer. As his case was heard on the scheduled date without his presence, Kumar was arrested on March 24, a few days after the hearing of his case by the CIC. Sources have claimed that Kumar was fighting against various irregularities and seeking information under the RTI including overstay of a regional rural bank’s employees at the same branch. Sources further claimed that Kumar’s query had led to the transfer of several bank employees, including a woman who had lodged a case against him with Mithanpura police station. On December 21, 2012, Muzaffarpur police was not only arrested him but paraded in the town with placards dangling on his chest and back saying he was a habitual eve-teaser. When produced before the chief judicial magistrate, he was granted bail. The then SHO Jitendra Prasad, who had forced Kumar to wear the placard, apologised in court following a show-cause notice against him. While talking to Millennium Post, Kumar’s advocate Sumit Kumar Suman said that one Ajay Kumar Paswan of Vaishali lodged an FIR against his client with SC/ST police station on March 12 on the charges of forgery.last_img read more
