Lok Sabha polls: Rahul Gandhi promises ‘special status’ to Andhra if voted to power

New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday promised ‘special category’ status to Andhra Pradesh, if voted to power in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.

Special status to Andhra Pradesh

“Giving special status to Andhra is not only a commitment made by Congress and Manmohan Singh ji. It is a commitment made by the country to Andhra Pradesh. It is our commitment that we will give special status to Andhra Pradesh the moment we come to power in Delhi,” said Rahul Gandhi while addressing a public rally in Vijayawada.

PM Mod did not fulfill this commitment

Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not fulfilling his commitment of providing special status to the state, Rahul said: “Mr Modi has been Prime Minister for five years and he has not fulfilled this commitment. Frankly, I am surprised that the parties in Andhra Pradesh are not aggressively pushing Mr Modi to give the state what was promised.”

Rahul, who has recently introduced his NYAY (Nyuntam Aay Yojana) to assure Rs 72,000 to 20 per cent of India’s poorest families, said: “I and Congress party will deliver the NYAY scheme like we delivered MGNREGA, White Revolution and Green Revolution. Rs 72,000 a year…I am not Mr Modi, I do not lie. He said he will give you Rs 15 lakh and that was a lie. The Government of India cannot give you Rs 15 lakh in a bank account but the Government of India can give Rs 72,000 a year to the poorest people in India.”

Waiving loans of the rich people

The Congress president accused Modi of waiving loans of the rich people like Anil Ambani and supporting fugitive businessmen Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi. “Modi waived loans of rich, but he did not waive farmers’ loans. In Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, we waived off loans of farmers within two days. Only Congress can protect farmers.”

“People are living in fear under Modi’s regime but once we come to power will definitely improve the situation,” he added.

Senior Congress leader AK Antony on Sunday announced that Rahul Gandhi will be contesting from Wayanad parliamentary constituency in Kerala in addition to Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.

The seven-phase Lok Sabha polls are set to begin on April 11 and will continue till May 19. The 175-member Andhra Pradesh Assembly will go to polls on April 11 simultaneously with the Lok Sabha elections. The counting of votes will take place on May 23. (ANI)

Shocking! Researchers ‘extract’ data from junked Tesla cars

San Francisco: In a shocking revelation, security researchers have extracted personal and unencrypted data — videos, phonebooks, calendar items — of Tesla users from crashed models sold at junkyards and auctions.

According to a CNBC report, a security researcher who goes by the name GreenTheOnly extracted data from the computers in salvaged Tesla Model S, Model X and two Model 3 vehicles.

“The computers on Tesla vehicles keep everything that drivers have voluntarily stored on their cars, plus tons of other information generated by the vehicles, including video, location and navigational data showing exactly what happened leading up to a crash,” the report claimed on Friday, citing researchers.

A Tesla spokesperson told CNBC the company offers options that customers can use to protect personal data stored on their car. “It includes a factory reset option for deleting personal data and restoring customised settings to factory defaults, and a Valet Mode for hiding personal data (among other functions) when giving their keys to a valet,” the spokesperson was quoted as saying.

“We are committed to finding and improving upon the right balance between technical vehicle needs and the privacy of customers,” the Tesla spokesperson said.

According to the report, data stored on Tesla models is not automatically erased when the car is hauled away from an accident site or sold at auction.

GreenTheOnly and his fellow white-hat hacker “Theo” bought a wrecked Model 3 to evaluate the data that remains in the car’s computers after a crash. They extracted records that showed the car’s computers had stored data from at least 17 different devices.

“Mobile phones or tablets had paired to the car around 170 times. The Model 3 held 11 phonebooks’ worth of contact information from drivers or passengers who had paired their devices, and calendar entries with descriptions of planned appointments, and e-mail addresses of those invited,” the report said.

Tesla recently had to give away one of their Model 3 cars and $35,000 prize money to a group of hackers after they cracked its system at a hacking event.

Amat Cama and Richard Zhu of team Fluoroacetate exposed vulnerability in the vehicle system during the Pwn2Own 2019 hacking competition, organised by Trend Micro’s “Zero Day Initiative (ZDI)”, in Vancouver, Canada, this week.

As part of Tesla’s bug bounty programme, the company has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in rewards to hackers who exposed vulnerabilities in its systems.

The electric car maker was fairly quick to fix vulnerabilities exposed by white hat hackers.

Bihar: RJD MLA Haji Subhan refers terrorist Masood Azhar as ‘Sahab’ (Video)

Kishanganj: Bihar RJD MLA Haji Subhan on Sunday referred Masood Azhar, chief of terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeI), as ‘Masood Sahab’ in the presence of party leader Tejashwi Yadav.

“Prime Minister Modi did not speak against China even after it vetoed a proposal to declare Masood Azhar ‘Sahab’ as an international terrorist,” he said while addressing a public rally here.

On March 12, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had also addressed JeI chief as “Masood Azhar ji”. Addressing Congress workers meeting in New Delhi, Rahul attacked the BJP saying, “These people with 56-inch chest, you would recall, in their previous government, the current National Security Advisor Ajit Doval went in an aircraft with Masood Azhar ji and handed over Masood Azhar there in Kandahar.”


At today’s public rally, Subhan took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying: “China is making Rs 50,000 crore from India every year. No leader is making efforts to stop this. Not only that, even the construction of the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel which is worth Rs 3,000 crore was built by China.”

He slammed the Prime Minister for criticising Pakistan at international forums but not China.

“The Prime Minister is not saying anything against China but is repeatedly speaking against that country (Pakistan) which is weak. The population of Pakistan is 22 crores and in Uttar Pradesh alone the population is the same. Pakistan is nothing in front of India. The whole of Pakistan can be destroyed within an hour. We are only criticising Pakistan again and again despite the fact that a strong country like China is standing in front of us,” he said. (ANI)

Sri Lanka’s Test captain Dimuth Karunaratne arrested for drunk driving

London: Dimuth Karunaratne, Sri Lanka’s Test captain was arrested for alleged drunk driving in Colombo on Sunday morning.

As per the police, the injured driver has sustained minor injuries and Karunaratne has been granted bail, after being taken into custody at roughly 5:40 am Sri Lanka time on Sunday, ESPN Cricinfo reported.

He is expected to appear before court sometime this week. This arrest can have huge ramifications for the player. Sri Lanka Cricket can impose their own sanctions depending upon the outcome of the court proceedings.

Karunaratne led the Sri Lanka team to an exceptional Test series win in South Africa in February. There were rumours doing the rounds that he can be handed the limited overs captaincy as Lasith Malinga has not been providing the desired results for the team in the format.

The team has been troubled with disciplinary issues over the past few months, but Karuna had avoided serious controversy up to now. (ANI)

IPL: Shah Rukh Khan’s Wankhede Drama To Lasith Malinga’s No-Ball; Controversies Of The Biggest Cricket League!

The richest and biggest cricket League, Indian Premier League continues to entertain the viewers in the current 12th edition. The league is no less than a festival for its fans, which assures a full-fledged entertainment. Apart from giving some extraordinary talents and nail-biting thrillers, IPL has become infamous for several controversial instances which grabbed the attention from all the corners of the world. Right from Shah Rukh Khan’s Wankhede drama to the recent Mankading act of R Ashwin, the league has provided some serious controversies to pile on.

Here are the controversies that shook the IPL fans:

Harbhajan-Sreesanth slap incident (2008)

Right in the first season, the league sparked the infamous slapping incident. In 2008, after Kings XI Punjab won the match against Mumbai Indians, Harbhajan Singh slapped Sreesanth (who then represented Punjab). While the reason is still not clearly known, it is said the pacer offended Mumbai’s spinner by saying something abusive.

A ban on Pakistani players (2009)

In the aftermath of Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008, Pakistan government stated that it is not safe for the Pakistani players to be the part of the league in India. Also, the wave of rage against the neighbouring country in India, favoured the ban.

A ban on Ravindra Jadeja (2010)

Ravindra Jadeja tried to negotiate some higher deals with other franchises and failed to renew his contract with Rajasthan Royals. The left-arm all-rounder was found guilty of breaching the player guidelines. He was banned for a one year by the IPL governing body.

Suspension of Lalit Modi (2010)

The brain behind the most popular cricket league, Mr. Lalit Modi was sacked as a Chairperson by Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI), due to his illegal financial activities.

Shah Rukh Khan and Wankhede drama (2012)

Superstar and a co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, Shah Rukh Khan was accused of abusing the officials of Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. Mumbai Cricket Association banned the actor from entering the stadium for 5 years but later repealed it.

Rahul Sharma and Wayne Parnell detected for drugs (2012)

Spinner Rahul Sharma and all-rounder Wayne Parnell of Pune Warriors squad, were caught in the rave party raided by the Mumbai police. The duo was detected positive for the recreational drugs.

The verbal spat between Gauti and Virat (2013)

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir showed the way of the pavilion to Virat Kohli (Royal Challengers Bangalore) with some send-off remarks, which didn’t go down well  with the latter and both got involved in the verbal spat.

Spot-fixing (2013)

This is the biggest controversy of IPL, which harmed the overall credibility and reputation of the league. The players of Rajasthan Royals including Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan, were said to be involved in the illegal practices of spot-fixing. Delhi Police claimed of having a piece of evidence. The players were banned for a lifetime after being arrested. Earlier this month, the ban posted by BCCI on Sreesanth was lifted by The Supreme Court Of India.

Tussle between Pollard and Starc (2014)

Two hot-headed cricketers got involved in a verbal spat during a match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. During one delivery of Bangalore’s left-arm pacer, Mumbai’s hitter, Pollard pulled out of his stance, which didn’t gown down well with Starc and threw a ball towards the West Indian. Pollard reacted by throwing a bat towards the pacer.

Suspension Of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals (2015)

Owners of both Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, namely Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, respectively, were found guilty in betting and fixing practices, which resulted in a ban of 2 years on both the teams by the committee headed by the Supreme Court.

R Ashwin’s Mankading controversy (2019)

The incident took place recently in a match between Ashwin led Kings XI Punjab and Ajinkya Rahane led Rajasthan Royals. The right-arm off spinner received backlash after he dismissed (ran out) Rajasthan opener Jos Buttler at the non-striker’s end during his bowling stride. While Ashwin defended himself by stating that Mankading is in the rule books of the game, the senior players criticised the player for not showing the sportsman spirit.

Lasith Malinga’s no-ball controversy (2019)

The last delivery of the recent match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians, sparked a new controversy. Bangalore, which needed 7 runs of the last ball with maverick batsman AB de Villiers, scored a single on the last ball, thus losing to Mumbai side. While the celebrations were on for Mumbai, it was later noticed that the umpiring blunder costed a match for Bangalore, as the last delivery was a clear no-ball.

I Am Angst About Certain Things, And I Will Express It, Says Ranveer Singh

Bollywood Actor Ranveer Singh says that he is happy and joyous about life but there are certain things he is angry about and when the time is right, he will express it with a beat as some people had it coming.

Ranveer Singh has teamed up with music evangelist and filmmaker Navzar Eranee for their passion project — an independent music record label named IncInk. He has collaborated with rappers Kaam Bhaari, Slow Cheeta and Spitfire for the music venture.

Talking to the media about his future singing plans on the sidelines of the IncInk press junket, Ranveer Singh said, “At the moment I am endorsing these sparkling new talents. I really feel that they are extremely talented and they need to be heard. I want people to hear their music; I want people to hear this music. For the moment I am doing this and I am also working on my cricket movie. So it’s all work in progress”

“I do have something to say though, I have a lot more to say, I have a lot that I’ve pent up that I want to express, that I want to let out, all great things are happening and I am very grateful, blessed and full of gratitude”  
“But it is not like there is nothing along the way that happened I have had experience which I am angst about and when the time is right, I will express it with a beat and it will be very hard. There are some people out there who had it coming. Just giving you a heads up”
After the successful Gully Boy, actor Ranveer Singh is prepping for his role in sports drama 83 and period drama Takth.

Hearing loss before 50 may raise drug abuse risk

New York: People below 50 years who suffer from hearing loss are more likely to misuse opioids, alcohol and other drugs than their peers who have no such disorder, say researchers.
The findings showed adults under 35 years with a hearing loss were 2.5 times more likely to have a prescription opioid use disorder.

In addition, those between age 35 years and 49 years who had hearing loss were nearly twice as likely as their hearing peers to have disorders related to both prescription opioids and alcohol, said the study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

For the study, the team included 86,186 adults.


“Hearing loss is connected with a variety of health problems, including mental and physical health, which may place these individuals at risk for pain disorders. Also, the marginalising effects of hearing loss, such as social isolation, may be creating higher rates of substance use disorders too,” said Michael McKee from University of Michigan in the US.

For those whose health care providers know of their hearing loss, McKee suspects that the higher rate of prescription opioid use disorder may stem from a higher rate of being placed on controlled substances to quickly address pain issues, perhaps because of communication barriers.

He further said that there were deliberations done on the issue by Congress leaders and added, “all of us requested Rahul that ignoring the unanimous request from Southern states is not correct. Hence, Rahul must accept the demand”.

“Finally he has given the consent to contest from Wayanad”, said Antony.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas headed for divorce within 3 months of marriage: US magazine

Mumbai: Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas are not having a good time with each other and the couple is already headed for a divorce, claims a magazine.

According to OK! magazine, the 36-year-old actress and the 26-year-old singer are quickly falling out of love now that they are “starting to really get to know each other”, reports gossipcop.com.

“They’ve been fighting about everything — work, partying, spending time together. The bottom line is that Nick and Priyanka rushed into things…And now they’re paying the price. Their marriage is hanging by a thread,” said a source.

The source added that Nick believed the actress was “cool and easygoing” when they got married.

“But recently Nick has seen a controlling side to her. She also has a temper — that’s something Nick wasn’t aware of until after the wedding celebrations.”

According to the source, Nick’s family is “begging him to end” the marriage as they initially thought Priyanka was “this mature woman who was ready to settle down and have kids”, but they now feel she’s a party girl who “acts like she is 21”.

The source says a split could result in a major battle over money.

“There are whispers that Nick and Priyanka got married so quickly they didn’t take the time to draw up a prenuptial agreement…”

The couple got married in India in December last year. Priyanka and Nick had three-day wedding festivities at Jodhpur’s royal Umaid Bhawan Palace, where they exchanged wedding vows as per both Christian and Hindu rituals in two separate ceremonies.

Vijay Mallya cites PM Modi’s remark to affirm recovery of all bank dues

New Delhi: Fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya on Sunday quoted an interview of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to assert that the government has already recovered more than what he allegedly owed to banks.

Mallya, who is currently facing trial in a UK Court, took to micro-blogging Twitter and wrote: “I humbly submit that my assertion that I am a poster boy is fully vindicated by the PM’s own statement about me (by name)that his Govt has recovered more than what I allegedly owe the Banks. Fact that I have been a UK resident since 1992 ignored. Suits the BJP to say I ran away.”


In an interview to Republic Bharat news channel on March 29, Prime Minister Modi had expressed satisfaction over the fact that Mallya’s extradition process was in the last stage and the government has recovered money from him.

“We brought in a law that enabled the Indian government to confiscate the property of fugitives in any part of the world. You must’ve seen in the case of Vijay Mallya. He owed banks Rs 9000 crore but the government has confiscated his properties worth Rs 14,000 crore from across the world. Now, he is in trouble because we are taking double the amount,” said the Prime Minister in an exclusive interview to Republic Bharat news channel’s Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami.

Reacting further on the Prime Minister Modi’s statement, Mallya also took a dig at BJP spokespersons for speaking against him despite the government’s confirmation of full recovery.

“Saw PM Modi’s interview in which he takes my name and says that even though I owe Rs 9000 crores to Banks, his Govt has attached my assets worth Rs 14,000 crores. So the highest authority has confirmed full recovery. Why do BJP spokesmen continue their rhetoric,” he tweeted.


Patiala House Court on March 19 had ordered attachment of Vijay Mallya’s properties in Bengaluru under section 83 in The Code of Criminal Procedure in connection with a FERA (Foreign Exchange Regulation Act) violation case.

The same court had already declared Mallya a proclaimed offender for evading summons in January 2018. The court had also issued an open-ended non-bailable warrant against him for evading summons and law of the land in 2017.

As per the case registered by the Enforcement Directorate, Mallya had allegedly paid USD 200,000 to a British firm and some European countries for displaying the logo of his now defunct Kingfisher airline in Formula One World Championships in London in 1996, 1997, and 1998.

The investigating agency also claimed that the money was paid without prior approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in violation of the FERA norms. (ANI)

Main Bhi Chowkidar campaign: PM Modi to address nation through video conference, booths set up at 500 locations

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today interact with people, who have pledged their support to the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign in all parliamentary constituencies on Sunday.

The Prime Minister will address the biggest town hall programme at the Talkatora Stadium at 5 PM later today. As many as 5,000 people are expected to attend the town hall.

At the same time, PM Modi will interact with lakhs of people across the country, through video conferencing set up at more than 500 locations across the country.

Taking to the Twitter, Prime Minister wrote: “The day we were most looking forward to is here! At 5 PM, lakhs of Chowkidars from different parts of India will interact in the historic Main Bhi Chowkidar programme. This is an interaction you must not miss.”

Expressing confidence that vibrant professionals especially youngster will facilitate ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campaign with their presence, Prime Minister said: “These professionals energise and strengthen India. It is their hardwork that is powering the rise of a New India in the 21st century.”

‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ campagin was launched on March 16 by Prime Minister Modi. A day after the launch, the Prime Minister, as well as a number of BJP leaders across the country, added the prefix ‘chowkidar’ to their Twitter handles as a mark of support to the poll campaign.

On March 20, Prime Minister Modi had addressed over 25 lakh chowkidars from across the country via audio conference. He also launched a scathing attack on the opposition party’s ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ campaign.

The origin of the word ‘chowkidar’ dates back to the poll campaigning ahead of the 2014 general elections when Modi had promised to work as a ‘chowkidar’ to guard the people’s money and their trust once elected to the top office.

‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ has been started after extensive surveys and data analysis by BJP strategists who feel that Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s ‘chowkidar chor hai’ jibe and campaign is not resonating among people. The surveys also suggested that it is actually angering people in the country, according to a release.

A similar strategy was adopted by the BJP ahead of the 2014 general elections, wherein the party turned around senior Congress leader Manishankar Aiyar’s “chaiwallah” jibe into a mass campaign.

This campaign is expected to drive the narrative of the Prime Minister’s strong and decisive image which multiple surveys have conveyed is the main factor in the upcoming elections, the release mentioned.

Under the aegis of this campaign, the BJP has leveraged a tech innovation called conversation cards on Twitter, whereby people will get a personalized message from the Prime Minister on Twitter on participating in this campaign. (ANI)

PM Modi all set to return as PM, says Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio

Kohima: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Saturday voiced the confidence that the BJP-led NDA government would storm back to power under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Drumming up support for Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party candidate Tokheho Yepthomi, he said Nagaland was a small state and dependent on the Centre. “It will only be in the fitness of things if the state government and the central government are in an alliance,” he said.

Yepthomi is the consensus candidate of the ruling NDPP-led People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA), which comprises the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Janata Dal (United) and an Independent.

“People want peace and development and to achieve that it will be good if the people elect the PDA candidate. The alliance with the BJP has been was maintained since 2003 to achieve peace and development in the state,” Rio said at rallies in Noklak and Thonoknyu.

An optimistic Rio said even opinion polls were showing favourable outcome for the NDA at the Centre.

He ridiculed the NPF leadership for misleading people through lies and cited instances like Leader of Opposition T.R. Zeliang’s false claims of being a graduate, the NDPP will be de-recognised by the Election Commission, and all NDPP legislators would be disqualified after which the NPF would form the government.

The Chief Minister said the NPF’s failure to set up a candidate and its support for the Congress was a mockery given that the NPF has 26 MLAs while the Congress has no MLA. Also, the Congress has failed to win in the last 3 general elections in the state.

“It has demoralised the NPF legislators and party workers and in-fighting has intensified,” he said.

Rio said two National People’s Party legislators — Imnatiba and L. Khumo — had also cautioned the NPP leadership not to set up candidates as it would be against the spirit of the PDA, which had set up consensus candidates.
