The Petitioner-Advocates, GS Mani Pradeep Kumar Yadav, and seek a time bound judicial inquiry into the allegations made against the sitting judge and an appropriate action against Reddy thereafter. They have also sought issuance of a writ in the nature of Quo Warranto against Reddy, declaring that he has no authority to hold the office of Chief Minister of State of Andhra Pradesh as he is “misusing his position and power as a Chief Minister by making a false, vague, political and scandalized remarks and allegations openly in the public and media against the senior most sitting judge of this Hon’ble Court and render Justice.” The Petitioners have asserted that the Executive should not overtake the judiciary; however in the present case, Reddy has “disturbed” judicial independence by making false allegations against a sitting judge. “No one including these PIL writ petitioners have never or ever entertain corruption in the government as well as in the judiciary. But at the same time independence and integrity of Judiciary is most important. A person who is holding the post of head of the State Executive should not overtake the judiciary by making a false allegations against the sitting judges of the Hon’ble Supreme Court. The general public confidence over the judiciary is paramount important. If public lost their confidence and faith over the judiciary there is no purpose remains,” the plea states. It is submitted that if Reddy was aggrieved over any issue which is pending in the court, he had a full right to challenge the same before the highest forum of court in accordance with law. However, “without taking any legal steps as per law”, he wrote a letter to the CJI, making “vague allegations” against a sitting judge of the Top Court, and even published the same in the public domain, “only to tarnish the image” of the country’s apex judicial institution. The Petitioners have further speculated that Reddy has attempted to lower public confidence in the judiciary, for his personal gain, as he himself is facing many number of criminal cases with the CBI and the Court. On October 11, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, wrote a complaint to the Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde, alleging that some High Court judges are attempting to protect the interests of the major opposition party, Telugu Desom Party, in politically sensitive matters. A striking feature of the complaint – details of which were revealed to the media in a presser by Ajaya Kellam, the advisor of the CM, on Saturday evening – was that it had accused senior Supreme Court judge, Justice N V Ramana, who is next in line to be the Chief Justice of India, of influencing the administration of justice in the High Court. A plea has also been moved before the Supreme Court stating that the contents of Reddy’s letter have put the confidence of people in Judiciary at stake. Next Storylast_img read more

SPORTS PERSONALITY: ‘For me, karate has become like a lifestyle’ says 18-year-old Kemo Cornelius

first_imgCHARMED by the skills of martial arts movie legends like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan while growing up, 18-year-old Kemo Cornelius is definitely willing to emulate those two idols. At eight years old he started training in the combative sport of karate, now ten years later he’s quickly progressing in the sport.The youngster has been winning locally, regionally, and internationally since 2009, and has already advanced to being a 2nd Dan black belt.Cornelius is a student of the Association Do Shotokan Karate, and trains under sensei Amir Khouri.“It’s been awesome. I advanced through my belts quickly, reaching black belt, and then two years later I got promoted to 2nd Dan black belt, which I am currently. I’ve been more focused on tournaments though, so I haven’t been up for exams since.” Cornelius said when we caught up with him.Karateka Kemo Cornelius (right) with his sensei Amir KhouriAt the last Caribbean Karate Championships in Jamaica, the 18-year-old won silver in the Boys’ 17-19 individual kata.This follows a string of medals over the years, both in the individual and team divisions.At the International Karate Daigaku (IKD) World Cup in Canada, in 2015, he won four gold medals: three from team events, and one for the Boys’ 17-19 individual kata.He won another four gold medals in 2014 at the Caribbean Karate Championships, in Trinidad and Tobago, while he won three team gold medals for the Boys’ 14-16 team kata, team bunkai, and team enbu.Because of his size, it could easily be argued that Cornelius does not fit the conventional look of a karateka, but the Caribbean champion sees this as more of an asset than a liability.“Most persons when they hear karate and fighting, they think big and strong guys, so I stand out mostly with my size, which I use to my advantage where I’m really quick and agile and consistently training to improve my level,” said the former St Rose’s High student.He added, “At first it was mostly the fighting, but as I learnt more and more especially reading up a lot on Bruce Lee’s perspective of martial arts, and how it makes us better as individuals it captivated me. So for me karate has become like a lifestyle, but the competition is still really awesome.”His performances overtime have not gone unnoticed, and the Government Technical Institute student was last year honoured as a Banks DIH brand ambassador for his stellar performances.And with karate finally getting a nod from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Cornelius is more determined than ever to develop his career, and perhaps make history as being among the first to participate in the sport at the Olympics.([email protected])last_img read more

White House defends Affordable Care Act

first_imgWith the House poised to vote Wednesday on a repeal of President Obama’s landmark health care legislation, the White House is working to emphasize the bill’s benefits to young Americans.“The Affordable Care Act signed by the President helps Americans across the board, particularly young Americans,” said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs during a phone conference with student journalists. “It ensures that they get access to affordable health care and get a fair deal on health care.”It is estimated that one-third of young Americans are currently uninsured, Gibbs said.Under the Affordable Care Act, young Americans can be insured under their parents’ health care plan until the age of 26. Gibbs said 1.2 million young Americans will gain insurance through the Affordable Care Act.“The President and others believe that the best way to provide stability for young Americans is to allow them to stay under their parents’ health care plan,” Gibbs said.The Affordable Care Act also helps those with pre-existing medical conditions obtain health insurance.“One hundred and twenty-nine million Americans who have pre-existing health conditions under 65 could be denied coverage or pay higher prices if they attempt to pay health insurance on their own,” Gibbs said. “It is now prohibited for individuals under 19 years old to be denied health care, and it will be illegal for anyone [to be denied] in 2014.”Elizabeth Adabale, a sophomore majoring in health promotion and disease prevention, said she approved of the benefits the Affordable Care Act provides for young adults.“It’s great that under the Obama health care reform, you are able to stay under your parents’ insurance until 26,” she said. “Tackling health care early makes for healthy adults, so the state doesn’t have to pay for people later on.”Republicans have criticized the bill for destroying jobs in the private sector.Gibbs contends, however, the health care bill has added approximately 1 million new jobs to the private sector and repealing health care could stifle job growth.“Without health reform we are likely to lose 250 to 400,000 jobs a year based on the health of our current economy,” Gibbs said.Some Republicans have deemed the health care bill unconstitutional because it requires all Americans to have health care or pay a penalty.Regardless, the White House stands behind the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.“We are confident that the way the law was written and passed by Congress that the legislation will be ruled constitutional,” Gibbs said.Republicans aim to repeal and then replace the health care bill, but many of them recognize that they do not have enough votes to repeal the bill in the Senate.“I don’t think there is any doubt that the legislative impact of tomorrow’s [House] vote is symbolic in its gesture,” Gibbs said. “It’s intended to send a signal to [the Republican party’s] base voters.”Gibbs criticized this gesture and said that it was sending the wrong message to the American people.“The message it sends to the Americans is that we are going to put health care insurance companies back in charge of making health care decisions, not patients,” Gibbs said.Casey Penk, a freshman majoring in international relations, disapproved of the Affordable Care Act, but insisted that young people remain at the core of any health care bill.“[The Affordable Care Act] provides a good safety net for young people, which should be part of any legislation,” Penk said. “But I would say that [the bill] reaches too far beyond that.”last_img read more
