Will seek ban on PFI, says Assam CM Himanta Sarma | Economic Times
The Assam government will urge the Centre to ban Popular Front of India (PFI), chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, following violent clashes during an eviction drive in Darrang district on Thursday in which two people died and 15 policemen were injured.Sarma said the government had proof that PFI had a role to play in the violence, which erupted during the anti-eviction protests in the Dholpur Gorukhuti area."Encroachment of land is done in Siphajar, Lumding and Barchalla with a definite design, by people from Dhing, Rupohihat and Lahorighat. This happens every five years and the demographic profile of the area changes," Sarma told media persons in Guwahati on Saturday.Dhing, Rupohihat and Lahorighat are areas with a majority Muslim population."State government has clear evidence that a certain group of people collected Rs 28 lakh in the past few months from the poor, (saying) that they will convince the government against eviction; we have those names. When they could not resist the eviction drive, they mobilised people and created havoc," he said."Prior to the day of the incident, in the name of carrying food items for the evicted families, PFI visited the site ...evidence is emerging implicating certain people.. they will be brought under investigation. Eviction was supposed to be done against 60 families, how did 10,000 people come there?"He said the state government had already sent a dossier to the Centre seeking a complete ban on PFI, an Islamic organisation that has often been accused of anti-national activities by the Centre, but which describes itself as a social justice movement.PFI has, however, denied involvement, saying it had nothing to do with the violent clashes.

Tejashwi Yadav tries to unite Oppn on caste census | Economic Times
Opposition parties are planning to corner the BJP by raising the issue of the Union government submitting an affidavit in the Supreme Court on Thursday that a caste census would not be feasible in 2021. RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav wrote to 33 senior leaders of different political parties on Friday, asking them for their suggestions and inputs on the issue so that an immediate plan of action can be prepared on the issue.Apart from leading opposition leaders such as Sonia Gandhi, Sharad Pawar, Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal, Navin Patnaik, Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav, MK Stalin, Uddhav Thackeray and Sitaram Yechuri, Tejashwi wrote to Jitan Ram Manjhi and Mukesh Sahni, who are part of the NDA.Yadav urged the senior leaders in his letter that before the census exercise begins they all must urge the Union government to include within the delayed 2021 census a caste census as well. "There is a churning all over India to know the critical reality of our own people," RJD leader Manoj Jha told ET. "The next step could be a meeting of all the important leaders with respect to how to take it forward in respective assemblies and on the streets."On Sunday, Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren will lead an all-party delegation of 11 leaders to meet the home minister on the issue of caste-based census. Soren had earlier sought time with the Prime Minister on the issue. However, the PM being in the US, the delegation will meet the home minister. The delegation also has BJP state president Deepak Prakash and AJSU leader Sudesh Mahto, who is part of the NDA.

NCPCR says R'than CM to review it marriage bill | Economic Times
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has written Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot expressing concern over the Registration of Marriages (Amendment) Bill, 2021, saying it "legitimises" child marriages, one week after the child rights body raised the matter with the governor of the state.NCPCR asked the state government to review the new law as its enactment would have a serious impact on the physical, psychological, and social state of minors.In its letter, the child rights body said Section 8 of the amendment Bill provides for registration of child marriages through marriage registration officers of the place where they have been residing for more than 30 days. It has asked the government to "reconsider the bill and review it" in accordance with the law and welfare of children in the state."The bill states that the marriage between the bridegroom who has not completed 21 years and the bride who has not completed 18 years of age could be registered by the parents or guardians within 30 days of the marriage," the NCPCR said in its letter on Friday, adding that the move "legitimises" child marriages in Rajasthan.The Rajasthan assembly last week passed the Bill amending a 2009 Act. The bill has led to a political storm, with the opposition BJP contesting its contents, while the state government has maintained that registering a child marriage does not give it legal status.

Cooperative policy coming soon: Amit Shah | Economic Times
Union cooperation minister Amit Shah said on Saturday that the Centre will soon come out with a new cooperative policy and that states need not worry about any discrimination. "Ministry of cooperation will run cooperatively with all the states and it is not made to fight with anyone. No one needs to think whether it is a state subject or a central issue. We will help all the states, take everyone along and take the movement forward," said Shah. Opposition parties, led by Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sharad Pawar, have expressed apprehensions over the creation of a new ministry in June this year and termed it an attack on federalism. Speaking at the first national cooperative conclave, Shah, who is also the home minister, said, "In the year 2002, Atal ji had brought the cooperative policy and now, in 2021-22, Modi ji will bring a new cooperative policy within some time. He said that in the 75 years of independence, in the Amrit Mahotsav, we will start formulating a new cooperative policy."Addressing the gathering, comprising more than 2,100 representatives of different cooperatives and nearly 50 million online participants, Shah announced that the number of primary agriculture cooperatives (PACs) will be increased to 300,000, from 65,000 at present, in the next five years. "The role of credit societies will be further strengthened so that even the smallest person can get credit," said Shah.He said the cooperation ministry will ensure priority landing by working with all the ministries to enhance the role of cooperatives in all priority sector lending. On the lines of Amul, special legal management is needed for self-help groups to work by forming their own societies, on which work is being done, said Shah. Stressing that the cooperative movement is more relevant today than ever, he said cooperatives can contribute a lot in the development of the country. According to him, cooperatives will play a crucial part in making India a $5 trillion economy.Referring to the problems being faced by cooperatives on taxation and other issues, Shah said he was aware of the concerns and assured that there would be no injustice towards them. The conclave was organised by various cooperative organisations, including the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Limited, National Cooperative Federation of India, Amul, Sahakar Bharti, NAFED and KRIBHCO.
