A curious case of the two national leagues: A handy explainer for your most pertinent questions

A curious case of the two national leagues: A handy explainer for your most pertinent questions

India is in a unique position in the world of football right now; Starting in November, there will be two national leagues parallel to each other. The CFA accepted the suggestion of the Indian Football Federation that the Indian Super League and the I-League have two slots in continental competitions run by the Asian Football Confederation.

While the Champions have a slot in the qualifying phase for the Champions and the AFC, if not to win, get a slot in the guarantee of the group stage of the Champions Cup of the AFC ISL are now eligible for the Cup Of the AFC through the playoffs.

Here is the quick explanation of the field in the second league system and other issues that you have had: the place that the Federation Cup has already received is now available to the ISL. Before that, there was a suggestion for a Supercopa of the four best teams of ISL and the I-League. The winners of the Super Cup are supposed to have continental groove. AIFF sources suggest that Calcutta clubs do not agree on the time for which the proposal will be forwarded to the AFC.

It is expected that there will be a project for the Indian Super League, with teams that can bid with a group of players. But keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed before the date, the sources of the club and the federation denied that the project is put to stone. ISL franchises may even have the ability to retain some players.

If the ISL has a tie with players who chose League that may have a clean draft, although the AIFF secretary said Kushal Das that a concrete road map can not be established for League I after a meeting with their clubs Constituents 29.

Should they run in parallel with each other, which seems very likely with each passing day, the I-League should lose ISL in terms of purchasing power.

It is very important to note that, as part of this two-league system, all parties are clear that they are permanent and not temporary solution. With the selection focused on qualifying for the 2019 Asian Cup, a solution must be obtained quickly. This is a step in the right direction, as the AFC dictation ensures clarity in the future.

For ISL, it is imperative to make a decision on the continuation of a project or an open market system as early as the first half of July. Tamhane The CTO of Mandar FC Bangalore is absolutely clear on the fact that their team for the next round of AFC Cup night to be finalized and is registered before the end of July, also for a long season before facing A formidable North Korea side SC 4.25.

For I-League clubs have been promised by the AIFF there will be improved levels of distribution and marketing. They also demanded higher compensation than AIFF’s offer.

Despite exposés and embarrassments, hundreds of judges preside in New York without law degrees

Despite exposés and embarrassments, hundreds of judges preside in New York without law degrees

Press releases are sent with considerable regularity, brief and basic accounts on the actions taken by the New York State Commission on Judicial Behavior: a judge is sanctioned for misconduct in the bank; Another agrees to give up his job due to suspicious behavior in private life.

Many of the announcements indicate that judges, as part of their agreement with the Commission, undertake not to seek or accept a judicial charge again. And some of the ads include a fact that still packs a surprise hit of the 21st century: disciplined judges are not and have never been lawyers.

Take, for example, the announcement published today June 26: “The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct announced that Gary M Poole, Rose City Court Judge, Wayne County, will waive July 1, 2017 And agreed not to seek or accept a judicial charge at any time in the future. ”

Poole has vowed to resign after the commission began investigating allegations that he engaged in “repeated conduct, unworthy and discouresse to a woman with whom he had been romantically involved.”

Poole has agreed to accept the action of the Commission and signed a clause stating the costs and results. He also waived any privacy protection and signed the stipulation knowing that it would be made public.

“Among other things,” said the announcement of the commission, “the judge shouted degrading and derogatory things about her and her new boyfriend in public, threatened with painful persecution demanded the return of some personal property and threatened to encourage ex-husband to Start a custody battle against their children. ”

Some New York State judges are not required to be lawyers or to have formal legal training, it was a little understood for much of the last century. It has been, at times, attracted notice. In 2006, the New York Times issued a large, bold series on the work of so-called city and town judges, including a 2000 retention court in the state. It was made for a remarkable reading:

“Some courts are not even judged tiny: offices or bank rooms judge no box basement or a jury Sometimes the public is not admitted, witnesses do not collide. Tell the truth and there are no minutes.

Almost three quarters of the judges are not lawyers and many truck drivers, sewer workers or workers – have a poor understanding of most basic legal principles. Some never made it to high school, and at least one is not beyond elementary school.

But serious things happen in these small rooms throughout the state of New York. The people were sent to jail without a plea of ​​guilty or trial, or thrown into their homes without the proper procedure. In violation of the law, the defendants were denied lawyers or have been sentenced to weeks in prison because they can not pay a fine. Frightened women were denied protection from abuse.

The review found overwhelming evidence from decade to decade, and to date, people are often denied basic legal rights. The defendants were illegally imprisoned. Others were subjected to racial and sexual intolerance in an explicit way that seems to come from another place and another time. People were denied the right to a trial, an impartial tribunal and the presumption of innocence …

Rose Valley chit fund scam: Tripura minister to be questioned by CBI

Rose Valley chit fund scam: Tripura minister to be questioned by CBI

A team from the Central Bureau of Investigation arrived Wednesday in the capital of Tripura Agartala to question a state government minister under the Rose Valley group chit scam fund. Bijita Nath, Minister of Social Welfare and Science, Technology and Environment, will be interviewed on Thursday announced the Central Research Agency in a notification sent to it.

The company Kolkata Rose Valley Hotels and Entertainment Limited was accused of running a Ponzi scam and tricking investors over 17 billion rupees in the eastern states of Assam, West Bengal, and Tripura Bihar in one of the largest chit fund scams in India. The case has seen many high profile arrests, including that of two West Bengal MPs – Tapas Pal and Sudip Bandyopadhyay the party in state power, Trinamool Congress.

While Tripura will launch early next year, analysts said that the IWC’s interrogation of a key minister of the left front Tripura government could have profound repercussions.

Political analyst Tapas Dey Agartala said that, given its momentum, the movement appeared to intend to send a signal. He added: “The left is certainly worried, but how much is going to hurt them, can only be said that after tomorrow.”

Bijan Dhar, General Secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), however, downplayed development. “We are very open to any kind of review,” he said. “The CBI can interrogate anyone who wants to. There is nothing to hide.” He said that the Tripura government had deliberately sent 37 cases concerning the swindle to the IWC. “However, they took only five cases,” he said. “The rest is being investigated by a special investigative team under the direction of the Supreme Court Agartala.”

Dhar said that if the government cooperates with the CBI’s investigations, it suspected “a central government involvement in peace and tranquility in Tripura.”

The Bharatiya Janata Party in Tripura passed from a nullity to the leader of the opposition party in the last four years, in the left front had a majority since 1993. In the last month, polls close were violent clashes between left cadres And BJP workers in the state. The BJP, which has repeatedly accused leftist cadres to attack their leaders, even called on the Center to impose the draconian law of special powers of the armed forces in Tripura in response to recent clashes.

Meanwhile, the BJP has rejected the CBI’s allegations used by the Center to intimidate the Left Front government before the elections. “The Left Front dropped the scam,” said party spokesman Mrinal Kanti Deb. “Minister Manik Sarkar opened an amusement park developed by the company, where he even praised the company.When the fraud was revealed, he said on the floor of the house he even knew how Valley of the Roses was a chit fund company. is this possible? ”

Deb said the BJP just wanted justice for people who had been cheated by Rose Valley Hotel and Environment Limited. “If and when we form Tripura’s government, we will develop a mechanism to compensate 14 lakh people deceived by the company,” he said. Deb said he was convinced the IWC would question faster leaders of the Left Front government. “This is just the beginning,” Deb said. “Many more names will appear very soon. No one will be saved.”

Bihar’s ruling alliance may be safe for now, but Nitish Kumar’s national ambitions have been dented

Bihar’s ruling alliance may be safe for now, but Nitish Kumar’s national ambitions have been dented

The decision of Chief Kumar Bihar, Minister Nitish to support the presidential candidate of the Bharatiya Janata party, instead of opposition candidate, resulted in a tug-of-war on the issue between him and his alliance partners last week. The battle may have ended by now, with the government alliance in Bihar for sure, but the question remains whether Kumar will ever recover the eminence among the opposition parties.

Kumar became the mascot of the anti-BJP alliance in the Bihar Assembly elections, 2015. He led a large-scale alliance – which included Janata Dal (States) Kumar, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and Congress – to fool the Celebration of saffron in the state. The stature won and took him home to clear national ambitions. It was even discussed as a candidate to be the opposition to prime minister in 2019.

However, the Kumar flip on the crucial issue of the presidential election shook his allies. He is now regarded as independent and as one who is not essentially opposed to the Hindutva Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh project despite his personal differences with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The statement on Tuesday by Janata Dal (states) leader KC Tyagi as former party ally, the BJP, “never hurts at any stage” as an ideological breakdown event, almost bordering on blackmail politics. This was clearly to silence allies Kumar after his decision to support Ram Nath Kovind, opposition candidate Meira Kumar.

Before 2015, the Janata Dal (States) ruled Bihar, in alliance with the National Democratic Alliance led by the BJP until Kumar left before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

The Tyagi outbreak was preceded by a series of statements by senior leaders of the RJD and Congress against the decision to support Kumar Kovind. While RJD chief Lalu Prasad criticized the prime minister of Bihar for a “historical error” last week, his son and Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi, advised Sunday Leader Janata Dal (States) against “political expediency.”

Ghulam Nabi Azad, leader of the Ghulam Nabi Azad Congress, made a veiled attack on Kumar the next day, accusing him of being “governed by various principles” and accusing him of abandoning ideology in associating the BJP for the presidential election.

Just when it seemed that the name of the call devouring the secular alliance, Kumar and Lalu Yadav have suddenly soldered. His spokesman is suppressed to give the impression that all is well in the alliance in the Bihar power.

The message is clear – whether the rupture would have caused a loss of power for the Rashtriya Janata Dal, which would have meant drifting into a completely uncertain lawn for Janata Dal (States).

Many Janata Dal (state) leaders admit that a new alliance with the BJP would not be the same as before, until Kumar joined the National Democratic Alliance in June 2013, ending a 17-year relationship.

If he is outside the secular alliance in Bihar, Kumar would have enough votes to stay in office if he had been chosen to join the BJP. But it is doubtful that a resurgence of the BJP would have operated under the Janata Dal (States) for a long time before the Lok Sabha elections.
