Switch to clean vehicles or be bulldozed, Nitin Gadkari told automakers today. “We should move towards alternative fuel… I am going to do this, whether you like it or not. And I am not going to ask you. I will bulldoze it. For pollution, for imports, my ideas are crystal clear… The government has a crystal-clear policy to reduce imports and curb pollution,” the Union minister of road transport Gadkari said. He held out a veiled warning, saying those supporting the government will have an advantage and those busy “minting money” will be in trouble, asking them not to approach the government later on the ground that they have a huge stock of vehicles that do not run on alternative fuel.

Defence cooperation with India is important, Trump administration said. The Trump administration told US Congress that defence cooperation with India would be an important pillar in the bilateral relationship as it needs the country to be a net security provider in the Indo-Pacific region. The Trump regime also informed the Congress that it “strongly supports” transfers of F-18 and F-16 fighter proposals put forth by Boeing and Lockheed Martin respectively. These proposals have the potential to take Indo-US defence ties to the next level, it said.
Dera gave Rs 5 crore for inciting violence before chief’s verdict, SIT probe revealed.

Sources said the Dera followers were also assured of a compensation in case of loss of life during the violence. Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim was found guilty of rape by a CBI court last month following which arson and violence erupted, killing 38 people.

The court awarded death sentence to Tahir Merchant and Firoz Abdul Rashid Khan and life imprisonment to extradited gangster Abu Salem in the 1993 serial blasts case. Besides Salem, the court also sentenced Karimullah Khan to life imprisonment in the case while awarding 10 years’ sentence to the fifth convict, Riyaz Siddiqui.

Over 2,000 personnel of SSB will be transferred to the Intelligence Bureau soon. This is being done to boost the on-ground presence of the IB on the eastern borders, where India is bolstering its defences by building roads and other military infrastructure. A total of 2,765 posts of the civilian cadre of the SSB will be shifted to the IB command over the next year. The cadre was seen as fast losing its sheen as the personnel were not getting timely promotions and could not opt for combat posts as their physical fitness did not allow them to perform arduous tasks and their recruitment rules were different from those of the uniformed staffers.
