Govt to study IndiGo related party deals seek parawise comments on Gangwals

first_imgNew Delhi: Taking serious note of alleged governance lapses at InterGlobe Aviation, the government will examine related party transactions as well as shareholder and other agreements, a senior official said. The promoters of the company — Rakesh Gangwal and Rahul Bhatia — are locked in a bitter battle over corporate governance issues, with Gangwal complaining to markets regulator Sebi and seeking its intervention to address the issues. Against this backdrop, the corporate affairs ministry has decided to examine whether memorandum, articles, agreements and resolutions are in consonance with the Companies Act, the official said.

Section 6 provides powers to override any memorandum, articles, agreements or resolutions passed at general meeting or by the board of directors in case they violate norms. According to the official, the ministry would also ask the company to give “para-wise comments” on Gangwal’s complaint filed with Sebi and marked to the ministry.

InterGlobe Aviation is the parent of IndiGo, the country’s largest airline. The carrier has more than 200 planes and operates around 1,400 flights daily. On Friday, Bhatia’s group said that InterGlobe Aviation is well run, financially sound and managed by a competent set of managers as it termed Gangwal’s allegations as much ado about nothing. Flagging concerns about certain questionable related party transactions (RPTs), Gangwal had alleged that shareholders’ agreement provides his long-time friend Bhatia unusual controlling rights over IndiGo. “Beyond just questionable related party transactions, various fundamental governance norms and laws are not being adhered to and this is inevitably going to lead to unfortunate outcomes, unless effective measures are taken today,” he had said in the letter to Sebi. A copy of the letter has also been sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal and Corporate Affairs Secretary Injeti Srinivas, among others. Gangwal and his affiliates have around 37 per cent stake in InterGlobe Aviation while Bhatia and his affiliates (IGE Group) have about 38 per cent. On Thursday, officials said there are indications about violations of corporate governance, fair market trade and insider trading rules and Sebi needs to probe role of each and every entity associated with all board members and promoter-linked entities.last_img read more

THE CANADIAN PRESS/HO-HGTV-Dennys Ilic The 43-year-old says it all started with strange symptoms that included intense heat sensitivity and fatigue. That had doctors thinking it was lupus, then a brain aneurysm, and then possibly two brain aneurysms.In the meantime, the Las Vegas-based Scott says he couldn’t venture far from home and could only work for about 15 minutes at a time. He often wore a cooling vest that pumped ice water to keep his temperature down.Eventually, a medical doctor who was also an expert in holistic medicine diagnosed a severe gastrointestinal infection. Scott says he began to feel better within days of starting antibiotics and a restricted diet that cut out wheat, dairy, gluten, soy and sugar.Scott, who appears on the finale of the HGTV series “Property Brothers: Forever Home” on Monday, says it’s been a month since his treatment and that he’s starting to feel like himself again.“The world and life works in mysterious ways. I’m so grateful for this one right here because I wouldn’t have made it,” Scott says while gesturing to a teary Belle.The couple, who got engaged in October, assured fans that Scott appears to have turned a corner after months of “having to live like a bubble boy.”“I felt at times recently like I did before this all started over a year ago. To me that’s huge progress,” says Scott, who has also appeared in the twins’ HGTV series, “Brother Vs. Brother.”Scott says he was actually sick during the filming of Monday’s episode of “Property Brothers: Forever Home,” even though it may not be apparent to viewers.In that finale episode, the twins embark on a full-scale renovation of their big brother’s Las Vegas home, with help from their father.THE CANADIAN PRESS Advertisement TORONTO – The older brother of renovation twins Drew and Jonathan Scott says he’s recovering from a debilitating illness that mystified doctors for over a year, and had him believing he was on the verge of death.The Vancouver-born JD (James Daniel) Scott details his health struggle in a video posted to Instagram, occasionally tearing up with his equally emotional fiancee Annalee Belle at his side.

At UN meeting West African States address threats to human rights

The meeting, called the ‘dialogue tree’ after a concept borrowed from African traditions, focused on initiating a discussion among key human rights stakeholders as the sub-region faces new threats to human rights and stability due to the crisis in Mali.“The dialogue tree was the place where all members of the community would meet to discuss matters of general interest, and issues affecting them,” said the head of the UN political office in Mali (UNOM), David Gressly, at the opening ceremony. “From that perspective, the dialogue tree represents an authentic tool for participation and, therefore, the promotion of human rights.” Northern Mali was occupied by radical Islamists after fighting broke out in January 2012 between Government forces and Tuareg rebels. The conflict uprooted hundreds of thousands of people and prompted the Malian Government to request assistance from France to stop the military advance of extremist groups.“These threats now include the lack of legitimacy of the State authority in some cases, transnational organized crime and drug trafficking, terrorism, as well as various kinds of extremism,” said Mr. Gressly. “The existence and preservation of the foundations of States and societies which are based on the rule of law, human rights, civil liberties and social justice are now at stake. We will continue to fight for these values and mobilize for strengthening West African States in order to allow them to better play their role in that regard.”The meeting, which was jointly organized by UNOM and the UN Office for West Africa (UNOWA), is the first of its kind in a series of consultations. In a news release, UNOWA said the dialogue tree meetings seek to become a platform for informal exchanges on issues relating to governance, rule of law, human rights, gender, peace and security in the region.“This meeting is an illustration of the partnership between UNOWA and UNOM to accompany Malian and West African actors in identifying solutions to new rising challenges,” said UNOWA Chief of Staff, Moudjib Djinadou. read more

In Chad top UN officials say humanitarian response must go hand in

OCHA/Eve SabbaghUN Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock (near left), and UNDP Administrator, Achim Steiner (far right), with ALIMA nutrition specialists working at the Chad-China Friendship Hospital, in the capital, N’Djamena.“The challenges the country faces have roots in development deficits and climatic realities that have made living conditions for communities caught up in the crisis, even worse,” said Mr. Steiner, adding that there was urgent need for a scale up in the response.Around 4.9 million people are in need of urgent support, with the majority of them food insecure. Over half a million are in need of shelter: “We call upon our partners to engage in multiyear financing to facilitate mid and longer-term planning. Stepping up now will help us address the crisis today, tackle the underlying causes and help people build resilience to better cope with and be able to stand on their own after the crisis,” Mr. Steiner added.The humanitarian response plan 2018 in Chad requires $544 million to respond to the needs of the 2.1 million people who are the most vulnerable in the country. To date, only 35.6 per cent of the funding has been received.This visit concludes a three-day trip to Nigeria and Chad, during which the two UN officials looked at ways both humanitarian and development actors can better support national support efforts, including in the Lake Chad Basin crisis. While in Nigeria, Mr. Steiner and Mr. Lowcock called for more support to ease the humanitarian crisis and rebuild lives in conflict-ravaged north-eastern part of the country. Wrapping up their first joint visit in Chad, UN Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator Achim Steiner and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock visited a nutrition centre in the capital’s Chad-China Friendship Hospital, where more than 16,000 children suffering from malnutrition are admitted annually.“I was profoundly touched by the plight of the women and children I met in the nutrition centre in N’Djamena today,” said Mr. Lowcock, who heads up the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).While he commended the efforts and actions undertaken to deal with one of the biggest nutrition crises the people of Chad have faced, he stressed that the bigger challenge is to prevent children being in this position to start with.“Humanitarian assistance can save lives, but the solution is development, economic progress and better livelihoods. The United Nations stands ready to support the Government, who must lead in this process,” he said.In N’Djamena, the two UN officials also met with senior Government representatives and parliamentarians, and discussed plans for national development, poverty reduction, the regional situation, and the recent Lake Chad Basin Region conference in Berlin. read more

NFL draft Joshua Perry selected in fourth round by San Diego

Former OSU linebacker Joshua Perry (37) celebrates after defeating Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Virginia. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorThe former Buckeye co-captain Joshua Perry was selected at No. 102 overall by the San Diego Chargers. Perry is the fourth defensive player taken out of Columbus and the second OSU senior selected in this 2016 draft class.Perry started at inside linebacker for coach Urban Meyer for the better part of three seasons, where he twice amassed more than 100 tackles in a season — 124 in 2014 as a junior, and 105 in his senior campaign.Known as a tenacious defender and a fierce teammate, Perry was the leader the team turned to on defense at the most crucial moments. In OSU’s double-overtime victory at Penn State in 2014, Perry played his best, picking up 18 total tackles, including 12 solo tackles. Perry’s 73 total solo tackles in his junior season are the second-most in one season by a Buckeye since 2002. Perry posted double-digit tackles in eight games combined in 2014 and 2015, including a 15-tackle performance against Michigan State this past season. Perry was voted first-team All-Big Ten by the coaches and second-team by the media in 2015. To accompany his force on the gridiron, Perry is regarded as a terrific teammate, evidenced by the honor of being named a Senior CLASS award finalist. Having been a starter for a year before Darron Lee arrived atop the depth chart and two years before current OSU linebacker Raekwon McMillan cracked the starting lineup, Perry was an easy pick for team captain. Much of the on-field transformation that made Lee the No. 20 overall pick in this year’s draft can be accredited to Perry. McMillan is likely to be a first-round pick in 2017, too.The Chargers took the 6-foot-4, 254-pound, Galena, Ohio, product with the 102nd pick in this year’s draft to address a need at linebacker after allowing 362 yards per game. He joins OSU teammate Joey Bosa, who was taken by San Diego third overall in the first round. Perry will likely have to work into a role with his new team, but there’s no question what type of character the Chargers are receiving in Perry. Opening the 2016 season on Aug. 13 in a preseason game, Perry and his new team are scheduled to take on the Tennessee Titans at 5 p.m. read more

first_imgHyderabad: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday alleged that Reserve Bank of India Governor Shaktikanta Das was involved in corruption and termed his recent appointment to the top post a “surprise”.

President Donald Trump called Barr after an estimated 18.4 million viewers tuned in for the reboot of “Roseanne.” Speaking by telephone on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday, March 29, Barr said Wednesday night’s call was pretty exciting. (Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP, File) Barr, President Trump revel together in “Roseanne’ success by Lynn Elber, The Associated Press Posted Mar 29, 2018 7:06 am PDT Last Updated Mar 29, 2018 at 1:42 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Roseanne Barr is reveling in Donald Trump’s support for her returning sitcom’s impressive debut, which the president says was a cultural and political breakthrough.“It was a thrill to get a congratulatory phone call from The President of The United States of America,” Barr tweeted Thursday, two days after ABC’s “Roseanne” reboot drew an estimated 18.4 million viewers.In the updated “Roseanne,” Barr’s support for Trump is shared by her character. For the president, it’s a rare bright spot among the major TV series, award ceremonies and late-night shows that regularly skewer him.Trump seized on its ratings during a speech Thursday in Richfield, Ohio, that was to be about infrastructure but hopscotched through other topics. He credited producer Mark Burnett, who brought Trump to reality TV in “The Apprentice,” for breaking the good news about “Roseanne.”He said ‘Donald, I called just to say hello and to tell you did you see Roseanne’s ratings?’ I said, ‘Mark, How big were they?’” Trump recounted.“And it was about us,” the president continued. “They haven’t figured it out, the fake news hasn’t quite figured it out yet. … But they will and when they do they’ll become much less fake.”The White House confirmed the Wednesday night phone call from Trump to Barr. They did not say if Trump had watched the show.The updated sitcom starring Barr and her original co-stars returned more than two decades after the first one ended its hit run. The hour-long debut episode was watched by 10 per cent more viewers than saw the May 1997 finale of ABC’s original “Roseanne.”Barr said Trump was happy for her. She said, “I’ve known him for many years and he’s done a lot of nice things for me over the years.”Conservatives cheered the show’s ratings. Matt Drudge tweeted: “‘ROSEANNE’ RATINGS BLOWOUT.” Donald Trump, the president’s son, tweeted “Wow amazing. Congrats @therealroseanne. If you’re not too busy already maybe work in a late night show too … seems there’s some demand for an alternate viewpoint.” Laura Ingraham added: “‘Roseanne’ reboot premieres to strong ratings, begging the question: why has Hollywood been ignoring us for so long?”During a Q&A session with television critics earlier this year, Barr said, “It was working-class people who elected Trump. So I felt that was very real, and something that needed to be discussed.”She added that the same holds true for “people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American. And so I wanted to bring it (the series) right down the middle, and we did,” said Barr.She added that she’s not an apologist for the president and doesn’t agree with all he’s said and done.___AP White House reporter Darlene Superville in Richfield, Ohio, and AP writer Catherine Lucey in Washington, D.C., contributed to this report.last_img read more

Our View Hysteria over the Turkish nuclear power plant is pointless

Our View Hysteria over the Turkish nuclear power plant is pointless

first_imgIt was rather strange hearing the indignant statements issued by political parties about the construction of the nuclear power plant in Akkuyu in southern Turkey. Had the politicians and newspapers run out of things regarding Turkey to get angry about? Phileleftheros turned these statements into a scaremongering report, under the headline ‘Terror over Cyprus because of Akkuyu’.The main concerns of the terror-stricken parties were that the power plant would be in an earthquake area, there would be an increased risk of terrorist attacks, Turkey did not have the scientific know-how to run such a plant, there would be serious consequences for the environment and the possibility of an accident would put at risk thousands of lives. Disy MEP Lefteris Christoforou wrote to the European Commission protesting that Turkey was ‘building this power station, as close as possible to Cyprus, despite the strong objections of the Cyprus Republic, a member-state of the EU’.Was there ever even a chance in a million that Turkey would have sought the approval of the Cyprus Republic or the Commission to construct a nuclear power station? It can build it anywhere it chooses without seeking anyone’s approval, something that even Greek Cypriot politicians are fully aware of.  They also know that all safety precautions will be taken, there will be tight security and the power station will be run by people with scientific know-how and expertise, because the first people that would suffer from the devastating consequences of any accident would be Turks.The political furore intensified after an academic at the Cyprus Institute was quoted as saying that Cyprus was in the ‘highest-risk zone’ and would be directly affected in the event of an accident at the station. Government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou was also obliged to join the debate, the government not wanting to be seen doing nothing. The Republic will take all necessary steps and make representations ‘in every direction’ about the Akkuyu power station he said.Will any representations or demarches be made to the Russian government, which will set up the nuclear power plant, provide all the scientific expertise and the $20 billion funding? Predictably, there was no mention of Russia in the protests of the politicians. Bizarrely MEP Christoforou wrote to the Commission to protest about the power station instead of the government of Russia, which will set it up. Everyone seemed to ignore the fact it was thanks to Russia the nuclear power station they are terrified of will become a reality. Had they not seen pictures of President Putin by President Erdogan’s side in Akkuyu at Tuesday’s ceremony marking the start of the project?Do the government and the parties seriously believe that they will be able to stop the construction of the nuclear plant in Akkuyu through letters and representations ‘in every direction’ or is this just theatre? We hope it is the latter because it would be very worrying if they were so naïve to think they could stop a $20 billion project aimed at further strengthening Russia-Turkey ties. You May LikeFood Eat SafeFoods That Lower Blood PressureFood Eat SafeUndotalDon’t scuba?
