contender in the Indian smartphone segment over the past few years After the success of the Lenovo Vibe P1 the company is now coming up with a sequel of its very popular smartphone Like the P1 the

the Vibe branding on this new smartphone but it does look a bit like the older model The one big difference in design is the lack of the Vibe branding and the change in shape of the dedicated power

great relief to use a phone where charging the battery is a once-every-three days ritual that too only if you are a heavy user In fact using this as a secondary phone the battery lasted almost a week before the first time I had to recharge it And about half an hour of charging can equip you to see the rest of the day through in most cases However to get the phone fully powered up will need an overnight pit stop The battery size might not have changed much from the last generation however the AMOLED screen means the power is used better than before The battery size might not have changed

February 18 2017 1:59 pm Student groups take part in a rally demanding probe into disappearance of Sushil Mandi in Kolkata on Friday (Source: Express Photo) Top News It has been a fortnight since Sushil Mandi an MPhil student of Jadavpur University (JU) “disappeared” He was earlier accused of sexually harassing a fellow student during a protest on campus last month and shamed on social media Now as the campus is on the boil over the issue the case has taken a casteist colour as Sushil is a tribal Several students groups have questioned the veracity of the alleged harassment and wondered why the authorities weren’t approached in the first place On Friday The Indian Express spoke to the 22-year-old girl student who had wrote about her alleged experience on social media that sparked the issue Since Mandi’s disappearance the girl student claims she had been facing smear campaigns and was being put under pressure to retract her statement “There are posters everywhere demanding ‘Justice for Sushil’ But justice for what That my post caused him distress When I wrote about what happened to me I didn’t name anyone” she said “I didn’t even know what his (accused’s) name was Moreover it wasn’t a complaint I felt the need to speak out against molestation and that was interpreted as a complaint I haven’t approached the university’s Internal Complaint Committees (which looks into such complaints) because its an open secret in the campus that they’re a joke In the past few months they’ve failed every harassment complainant I didn’t want to repeat what happened with me to the police” she added On January 15 the student had posted on social media that she was sexually harassed by a member of the Radical student group while participating in a “feminist militant protest” earlier in the day The protest was held under the joint banner of the students groups the United Student’s Democratic Front (USDF) and Radical After the elections to the JU students union on January 25 the USDF accused Mandi for the incident and publicly shamed him According to his family members and friends Mandi disappeared on February 2 leaving behind most of his belongings including his phone The next day Sushil’s family filed an FIR against the girl and four members of USDF – Soumya Mondal Dibyakamal Mitra Koustav Mondal Nabottoma Pal – under sections pertaining to defamation abducion and SC and ST (prevention of atrocities) Act The caste aspect received particular attention On Friday students under the banner of ‘Friends of Sushil’ that included associations of tribals and minorities took out a rally from the university till Golpark in south Kolkata With banners imploring Sushil Mandi to return the students invoked “We don’t want another Rohit Vemula” referring to the Hyderabad University student who committed suicide last year That incident had sparked a nationwide debate on how Dalits were treated in educational institutions Dhiraj Sengupta of the Association For Protection of Democratic Rights (APDR) too wrote to the Joint CP (Crime) demanding action in the case “Till today we found no advertisement in newspapers or in audio-visual media about missing Sushil Mandi This appears to us as inadvertence on the part of Kolkata Police in this case Is it because Sushil hails from a destitute low caste family” he said The student groups the USDF and Radical meanwhile have been at loggerheads ever since the accusations started against Mandi “We don’t have any complaints against the girl She didn’t name anyone Instead it was the USDF who had named him and publicly shamed him Our demand is that Sushil be brought back with due respect” said Nilim Bose Radical The outfit too beliefs Mandi was targetted due to his “tribal background” Kaustav Mondal of the USDF said “It is meaningless to bring caste issue into a molestation case To file an FIR regarding this is basically to put pressure on us and try and shift the blame on the victim We are willing to self critique about whether or not we should have named Sushil Mandi But Radical demanded that we say we were wrong or that the girl says that the incident never took place That is not acceptable” The issue has exposed the faultlines between other Leftist organisations “There is caste discrimination in this case He was publicly humiliated This is the same way in which fascist forces have worked in the case of Najeeb Ahmad (who is missing from a Delhi university) or Rohit (Vemula) to attack minority communities If the complaint was legitimate why hasn’t she approached the authorities Or is this a form of Brahiminical Leftism that can’t tolerate minorities in the public space” said Osman Gani of the Students Islamic Organisation of India Meanwhile the police maintained that they were yet to find any trace of Sushil “There are two theories – that he went underground and we have tasked police teams to find him The second theory is that he’s dead But we’re yet to recover a body” said a

plan will apply to long-term leases across the state Mumbai which has the highest number of land tenures will be impacted the most In Mumbai city district where land prices command a premium the government has granted 1282 long-term leases Of this 691 are up for renewal In Suburban Mumbai the government has granted another 1500-odd lease sources said Enabling the government to monetise its land parcels the new policy states that developers interested in redeveloping the lease lands would have to pay a premium to the state government The state’s revenue department which is the custodian of such properties will collect a premium of 25% of ready reckoner value of the property for permitting residential commercial and industrial redevelopment For redevelopment for educational and religious purposes the premium payable would be 125 per cent Ready reckoner (RR) values are market values of the property determined by the government every year On April 13 the revenue department issued a government resolution notifying the policy Earlier the state Cabinet had given a go-ahead to it Incidentally the policy also allows for regularisation of cases where redevelopment of lease lands had been undertaken without the government’s prior consent A penalty amounting to an additional premium of 5 per cent of the RR values will be levied in such cases In the island city of Mumbai where a number of lease grants exist from the pre-Independence era the Mumbai Collector’s office had found several cases where third-party rights had been created and redevelopment carried out without the government’s consent A senior state official said that for cases where the lessee had illegally sold transferred or assigned the lease to another party permission for any redevelopment would be processed only after payment of applicable unearned income Besides the premium against the permission to redevelop the developers will also be entitled to pay premiums applicable as per the prevalent norms for utilisation of paid floor space index and transferable development rights for the redevelopment project While transfer or sale of tenancies or rehabilitation tenements will be permitted the government has said that the beneficiary would be required to pay a transfer or licence fee Incidentally the government has barred the developers or tenants of such redevelopment projects to mortgage the land or the tenements without its prior consent While making the Collector the decision-making authority in cases where there were no change of use and the redevelopment was in consonance with the development control regulations the government has ruled that the Collector would have to seek the government’s sanction before validating any redevelopment proposal The government has also clarified that the land tenure would continue to remain leasehold and the terms and conditions imposed at the time of allotment of the lease would continue to be in place even after the redevelopment The

“We want to first talk with the new representatives of Indian cricket board in the ICC meeting and ask them about the status of the scheduled series under the MOU signed between both boards in 2014” he said The PCB aware of the existing relations between the two countries has already talked about inviting Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the same window that India is supposed to play the bilateral series this winter Khan said that since 2007 and after the MOU was signed Pakistan cricket has suffered huge losses because India had not even agreed to give Pakistan a chance to host its due series

takes up the November-December series it will then decide on its future course of action “We have not ruled out legal processes to be compensated for our huge losses caused by the refusal of India to play us” he said The PCB chief also admitted that the Federation of International Cricketers Association was a big hurdle in the way of international cricket returning to Pakistan “We held the final
