cent in BMC’s capital expenditure over the past two months As per civic data capital expenditure stood at barely 28 per cent at the end of January 2014 While the corporation’s revised capital expenditure estimates stand at Rs 428966 crore actual expenditure till March 25 shows that barely Rs 214179 crore has been utilised For the next financial year the corporation has made an estimate of Rs 31000 crore up by almost 13 per cent from the current fiscal budget of Rs 27500 crore Even after the Dockyard Building collapse in September 2013 the lowest expenditure about 48 per cent of a revised estimate of Rs 2875 crore has been recorded in the estates department which looks after the upkeep of the civic-owned buildings These amount to roughly 5000 properties across the city Expenditure on the Fire Brigade department remains less than 15 per cent of the department’s revised budgets despite the growing urgency for upgrades In fact capital expenditure recorded at 148 per cent has risen seven times from 2 per cent at the end of January This despite the fire brigade inviting criticism recently for being ill-equipped and its compromised ability to combat different kinds of blazes While the the roads department had expected to cross the Rs 1000 crore-mark in expenditure for the current financial year it has managed to spend barely Rs 59492 crore or 585 per cent of the revised estimate of Rs 101654 crore till date Around 22 per cent of this expenditure was in the past two months alone At the start of the current financial year the corporation had envisaged a budget

semi-final berths in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup on Sunday It’s been a treat for football fans whenever the two teams locked horns File image of Brazil U-17 Football team Getty Images In the recent past Germany annihilated Brazil 7-1 in the 2014 World Cup in the latter’s den while the Neymar-inspired Selecao returned the favour at the Rio Olympics last year by winning the gold medal The Salt Lake Stadium has hosted many high-profile matches in the past including the Lionel Messi-studded Argentina versus Venezuela exhibition game but this is arguably the biggest official fixture to be played on Indian soil The big-ticket quarterfinal has already got the fans talking and the Sunday turnout is expected to be above 60000 Deprived of India games at the revamped Salt lake Stadium the football-mad Kolkata did not disappoint with an average 40000-plus attendance so far The Brazilians have a huge support base in the region since the legendary Pele mesmerised the city during the Cosmos tour of 1977 Compared to their illustrious seniors who are five-time reigning world champions the German colts are still searching for an elusive title at U-17 level Their best came in the tournament’s inaugural edition in China 1985 when the then West Germany had finished runners-up On paper the Germans are no match for their Latin American rivals who are in their 16th U-17 World Cup Till 2015 Brazil have played the most matches (75) accumulated the most victories (47) and scored the most goals (166) in the history of the FIFA U-17 World Cup These stats however don’t make the Carlos Amadeu-coached side favourites with Christian Wueck’s boys peaking at the right time after being stunned 0-4 by Iran in the tournament’s biggest upset The Brazilians are attacking from the wings and Wueck is seen cleverly adjusting their style to his trusted 4-5-1 formation With left-winger Dennis Jastrzembski facing suspension and injury concerns to their midfielders Yannik Keitel Sahverdi Cetin and Nicholas Kuehn it remains to be seen how Wueck employs his attack Jastrzembski formed a fine combination with John Yeboah to his right along with their leading scorer Jann-Fiete Arp in their 4-0 pre-quarterfinal win over Colombia in New Delhi Germany’s leading scorer Arp who has four goals from as many matches Yeboah and Yann Bisseck will once again be their trump cards and they would look to breach Brazil’s impenetrable defence The South American U-17 champions like to work as a team something that is summed up by their goalkeeper Gabriel Brazao who has conceded just one goal in four matches "Our defensive systems start with our forwards that’s why the opponent’s team not shooting not much in our goals" he spoke of Brazil who have won all their four matches without much fuss Brenner and Lincoln have been in their imperious best with three goals each but it’s their diminutive young midfielder Alan who has been the sensation setting up goals The 17-year-old has reportedly impressed many European clubs including Real Madrid with his deft footwork The Brazilian No 10 was rested for his country’s third group match against Niger but returned to set up all the three goals against Honduras and he would definitely give the German defence something to ponder about "We always look for a pass if that pass is going to find a team-mate who’s better placed to put the ball in the net There’s no selfishness in this team" Alan the shortest player in their squad said about their team unity This match has attracted the attention of Germany’s 2014 World Cup and 2017 Confederation Cup-winning coach Joachim Loew who has posted an inspirational video message: "I’m interested in your performance in India. I’m looking forward to the match and I wish you all the best" The Germans can take inspiration from the last time both teams clashed at the U-17 World Cup Germany defeated Brazil 4-3 in a

Awuku Jann-Fiete Arp Vatican: Pope Francis on Wednesday called for categorical opposition to capital punishment to be written into an update of the most important guide to Catholic teaching His comments which will be controversial with many fundamentalist Christians and some Catholics came in a speech to clerics attending a conference in Rome to mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church The catechism is a question and answer guide to what Catholics should think about a wide range of moral and social issues File image of Pope Francis AP Acknowledging that the Vatican itself had historically had "recourse to the extreme and inhuman remedy" of judicial execution Francis said past doctrinal errors should be put aside "We have to restate that however grave the crime that may be committed the death penalty is inadmissible because it attacks the inviolability and the dignity of the person" he said The execution of a human being was fundamentally against the teachings of Christ because by definition it excluded the possibility of redemption he argued The Catholic church has steadily increased the strength of its opposition to the use of capital punishment in recent years Pope John Paul II made an appeal for a global consensus on abolition in 1999 and Francis’s predecessor Benedict XVI issued a similar call in 2011 The 1992 text of the catechism says authorities should take appropriate measures in the interest of the common good without excluding the use of the death penalty in extremely grave cases More recent updates say justifying circumstances are now rare if not practically non-existent And a version of the catechism aimed at younger people now includes a question "Why is the Church opposed to the death penalty" Francis has made clear his own personal opposition to the death penalty on numerous occasions "It doesn’t give justice to victims but it feeds vengeance" he said in June 2016 arguing that the

and the many good citizens of India who are fed up with stagnation and national decline This second camp voted for Modi not for undemocratic crackdowns on free speech nor for State intervention in the kitchens and fridges of Indian citizens but for liberation from cronyism and corruption from dynastic politics and quasi-socialist economics They wanted an India of which they could be proud led by an assertive self-made man not by the mousy puppet of a former PM’s widow Modi is losing this cohort of citizens — if he hasn’t lost them already 2 What will these citizens do now — those who voted for Modi but who had no love for the RSS the ABVP and the other forces of Hindutva that seek to infiltrate all facets of Indian life There is a danger that these non-Hindutva Modi voters will switch off from participatory politics They are an increasingly homeless bunch Where do they turn The Congress party — a collection of witless nobodies sycophants and socialists — isn’t an option;

|India need to draw series to stay at the top England needwhitewash After consistently opposing the referral system which all other countries have adopted in bilateral contests the BCCI recently relented and has decided to use it on an experimental basis Kohli did not read too much into the statements of England captain Alastair Cook and key fast bowling all-rounder Stuart Broad both of whom stated that they were the underdogs in the series “I think some team might want to play it low at the start of the series and then surprise the opponent but we are quite aware of those things We have experienced those sorts of tactics in the past” said Kohli who has hit two double tons this year “But at the same time we don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves We understand what we need to do so we are not going to get swayed away or carried away by the praise or adulation; at the same time criticism as well If it’s a constructive criticism from the team management or from the people we observe the game very well it’s always welcome But we never get carried away by praise ALSO READ | Five India players who can dominate againstEngland “That’s why we have been able to perform consistently and that’s our only goal to keep improving as a side and keep winning games of cricket Nothing changes for us” the 28-year-old aggressive batsman elaborated The 48-Test-old seasoned pro emphasised that the team now believes in winning rubbers and not just be competitive “The mindset is not (just) to compete anymore We want to win series we want to win Test matches For that you have to be at your A game all the time and also keep improving on your A game as well That’s been the mindset and the guys are ready for the challenge” Kohli said “These kinds of matches and series are something that you play for Against top sides it tests your character tests your skill and you come out as a better cricketer regardless of the results so that’s something we’re really looking forward to” Kohli also said although the team swamped New Zealand 3-0 in the preceding Test series there were some deficiencies in India’s performances which need to be ironed out “Since we came back from the West Indies we knew that the home season is going to be tough We’re playing quality sides which have been doing well in Test cricket – New Zealand England and Australia So we knew it’s going to be a tough season at home and for that we need to be more aware during crucial situations There are areas we have addressed that need improvement” he said “Even from the last series we understood and improved on them in the last Test especially losing wickets at key times – before and after breaks That was something that really hampered us in the past We saw immediate results in the third Test in Indore and we understand we need to keep improving as a team” he added Asked about the positive and negative aspects of playing a lengthy five-Test rubber the first one on Indian soil after 1984-85 Kohli said it all depends on gaining the momentum from game “Yes it’s been a while since we played five Tests There are advantages and disadvantages depending on the momentum you create from the first game In a Test match series momentum is very important and it gives the team an opportunity to set up a nice pace for the whole series because it’s very long and you play a lot of cricket” he said “Momentum will be a key factor on which advantages and disadvantages will depend on The momentum from the first game sort of defines if you have an advantage or a disadvantage as a team “If every game goes for five days then it’s 25 days of hard-fought cricket You need momentum because you have various sessions and situations that you play in As a team you obviously want to be on top and win as many sessions and situations as possible” Kohli preferred to play cards close to his chest when asked whether India would include three spinners in the series opener “The combination is something I will obviously not speak about at this stage I wouldn’t say England struggled they played really well in the first game (in Bangladesh) The second game Bangladesh played better in their conditions We know England is a side that came to India last time and played well We’re not going to take anything for granted although we’re playing some really good cricket” he said “We want to focus on our strengths but you cannot ignore the opposition altogether At the same time you have to be confident in what you do as a team That’s something we’ve focused on and that’s one reason why we’ve been able to get the results we have in the last 12-14 months “That’s something we want to continue it’s about having a right balance of not getting too overconfident but at the same time not giving too much importance to the opposition as well We have to maintain that right balance” For records India had lost the last three Test rubbers against England but Kohli brushed aside past results between the two sides “We don’t think about those things what’s in the past we can’t go back and change it We can only look forward to what we can do in the future that’s to play good cricket and express our skills to the best of our potential and play as a team These things are created by people their perceptions and their own thoughts” he said “As a team we treat every day as a new day we treat every opposition the same we treat every session on the field as an opportunity for us to perform as a team That is something we have been able to So I think this team has done really well and it is something we will keep looking to do in the future also” Kohli hoped his premier spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will have a good series like he had against New Zealand Ashwin captured 27 wickets and ran away with his fourth man-of-the-series award against the Kiwis “Ashwin is obviously a world class bowler we all know that He is in good momentum He has been bowling really well bowling in the right areas I just hope that he has another good series for Team India” the skipper said Kohli also refused to dwell much on his poor record against England in 2014 “I can put it simply as a phase in my career when I didn’t perform very well I just take it as a setback in my career and not motivate myself in way that I have to prove people wrong or I have to do something special against a particularly opposition Those things will not make any difference to me” said Kohli For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi |

It was here that Modi made his first public promise the implementation of a four decade-old demand — One Rank One Pension (OROP) Date: September 5 2015 Venue: Conference Hall of Defence Ministry in South Block Occasion: The announcement of the implementation of OROP Flanked by the three service chiefs Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar announced the resolution of an issue that had been agitating Indian Armed Forces personnel both serving and retired for over 40 years Major-General Satbir Singh (left) and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar (right) IBNLive This was a big day for veterans — from the rank of jawan to the service chiefs It was an equally big day for the Modi government and the BJP as they prepared to deliver their one big promise — a complex issue that has dogged the Modi government since assuming office and something that successive governments for the past 40 years including the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government havefailed to deliver on The man who made this promise and reiterated his resolve to fulfil it in his Independence Day speech from Red Fort as also the prime mover for hastening the pace of decision-making in the government Modi chose to stay in the background letting his hand-picked defence minister write his name in history Modi perhaps wanted to send out a message that his government worked as a team and was not a one-man show as his political rivals and critics allege The OROP as Parrikar stated will be implemented from 1 July 2014 — a day after the Modi government presented its first Budget There are many who are questioning the timing of this announcement due in no small part to the fact that the schedulefor the Bihar Assembly elections is to be announced on Monday The OROP in fact has no direct bearing on the Bihar unlike Haryana Punjab Uttrakhand Himachal Pradesh and other such states that contribute a much larger percentage of soldiers in the country’s armed forces However if a decision and announcement on OROP had been delayed for few more days the model code of conduct — which will come into effect with the announcement of polls for the Bihar Assembly — would have prevented the Centre from making the announcement until the conclusion of these polls sometime in November With ex-officers and jawans sitting on dharna at Jantar Mantar for the past 83 days these are not the optics that the BJP would have wanted to take into an election as critical as Bihar The BJP will now have all its guns blazing — praising Modi for jo kaha woh kiya (did what he promised) and taking on the party’s political rivals This will be a major talking point for the BJP from Saturdayonwards particularly as campaigning for the Bihar polls hots up Parrikar’s statement carefully and cleverly laid the pitch to show not just how seriously the Modi government worked to make the OROP a reality after four decades but also how cavalier the UPA government had treated the matter "In February 2014 the then government stated that OROP would be implemented in 2014-15 but did not specify what OROP would be how it would be implemented or how much it would cost An estimated Rs 500 crore provided for OROP in the budget presented in February 2014 by the then government was not based on any thorough analysis It is pertinent to mention that the then Minister of State for Defence in 2009 had in reply to a question informed Parliament that there are administrative technical and financial difficulties in implementing OROP It is for these reasons that the present government took some time to fulfill its promise Prime Minister Modi has on various occasions reiterated the government’s commitment to implement OROP for ex-servicemen under military pension As stated above the previous government had estimated that OROP would be implemented with a budget provision of a mere Rs 500 crore The reality however is that to implement OROP the estimated cost to the exchequer would be Rs 8000 to 10000 crore at present and will increase further in future"Parrikar said The purpose of revealing these figures is evident Even though the veterans might not be fully satisfied with the deal dealt today it leaves the Congress with legs to stand on in the issue anymore Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had mocked Modi when the prime minister announced a Rs 165 lakh-crore package for Bihar suggesting that he had announced goodies for the poll-bound state at the cost of veterans It is now the BJP’s turn to open fire at the Congress The BJP was on the back foot after its mishandling of the Land Acquisition bill and the continuing logjam over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill OROP gives the party a chance to score some points in the popular perception war as also to do something worthwhile for those who risked their lives to let the nation work and sleep in peace Narendra Modi AFP "Caution and not enthusiasm is evident in every arena whether economy defence healthcare trade and investment energy education and labour" the report said "Yet there are tremendous opportunities before the Modi government: there is still tremendous popular support for Mr Modi personally the corporate sector is still hopeful of change the global environment has been helpful and India’s demographic dividend is in India’s favour" the report said adding that Modi backers are also impatient for positive results "Markets run on sentiments and until now the upswing in Indian economic growth has been primarily because the markets remain hopeful of change for the better Prime Minister Modi must act fast before this hopefulness dissipates" said the report The report also argued that India’s economy is growing but not because of government policies and actions The pace of growth has increased because of global economic factors such as lower oil prices and the fact that the market still ‘hopes’ things will changeFirozabad: In a freak accident at least 11 people were killed on Sunday after a speeding truck

bodies out "As many as 10 people died on the spot while a critically injured man succumbed to his injuries on way to Agra" Sharma said "Of the deceased identity of four have been ascertained so far They are Manoj (35) a resident of Mainpuri his 12-year-old son Himanshu and nine-year-old son Pranshu The person who was critically injured and later died has been identified as Pankaj also a resident of Mainpuri" the district magistrate said The bodies have been sent for post-mortem The truck driver is absconding and further investigation into the incident is underway the police said In the statement issued by the office of the chief minister in Lucknow Adityanath expressed his condolences to the bereaved families When police arrested two promoters of Team Solar a Kochi-based firm that promised to end Kerala’s power woes by offering solar power solutions in 2014 many thought it may pass off as one of the numerous cheating cases that the state is all too familiar now Instead the case has grown in dimensions with regular revelations of hoary tales of sleaze and corruption by the too ambitious entrepreneurs Saritha S Nair and Biju Radhakrishnan and now offers to add enough spice to the campaign for the Assembly election slated to be held on 16 May A file image of Saritha S Nair PTI The Opposition Left Democratic Front (LDF) which used the Suryanelli and Kozhikode ice cream parlour sex scandals to prevent the rival United Democratic Front (UDF) from retaining power in 2006 and to contain its majority to one of the lowest in the state’s poll history in 2011 has taken it up along with the bar bribery scam as its most potent weapon to beat UDF’s “development and care” poll plank The two scams together have put nearly one third of the UDF ministry including Chief Minister Oommen Chandy himself in the dock over charges ranging from bribery to sexual exploitation While Saritha accused Chandy and a former Union Minister of raping her Biju who is also her former live-in partner added two more ministers an MLA son of a minister and a senior police officer to the list The duo also accused the Chief Minister and two of his ministerial colleagues and a host of MLAs and ruling front leaders of accepting bribe for supporting their business Saritha alleged that she had paid Rs 19 crore to Chandy for making available government land at Palakkad to set up a solar power farm The bar bribery scam involved mainly two ministers While K M Mani resigned as finance minister over the allegation leveled by bar owner Biju Ramesh Excise Minister K Babu is staying in power on the strength of a stay granted by the High Court into the vigilance court proceedings against him Never before in the history of Kerala have so many ministers faced such grave charges of corruption and sexual exploitation Normally the scandals of this magnitude are enough to spell the downfall of a government However the Oommen Chandy government has survived the storm and nurses the hope of retaining power The major reason for the confidence is a victory in a by-election in July last year and the impressive show they put up in the last Lok Sabha election amid the raging scandals Does this indicate a rejection of the allegations by the electorate who are normally very sensitive to corruption and an endorsement of the UDF’s ‘development and care’ slogan Political observers believe it is a mix of the two Political commentator Jacob George said that people may have taken the allegations raised by the solar scam accused with a pinch of salt as they sought to build their empire by cheating and blackmailing people They are accused in 36 cases related to solar scam alone Besides Biju Radhakrishnan is also serving a life-term for murdering his first wife Even the High Court has questioned the credibility of Saritha who has been making contradictory allegations The court expressed lack of faith in her when she sought a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against the Chief Minister The sexual allegation she made against the Chief Minister raised eyebrows in the state as she had described Chandy father-like only three months ago when her partner leveled sexual charges against him Though Biju offered to produce a CD to prove his charge he could not do so far Saritha had also denied Biju’s allegations when he cross-examined her at the judicial commission probing the scam in February The Chief Minister pointed out that her lawyer had also not raised any reference to the charge during his cross-examination before the Justice Sivarajan Commission Chandy believes that Saritha has come out with the allegation after the poll notification at the behest of forces that do not want the UDF to retain power He has turned the accusing finger at the bar owners who suffered huge loss following closure of all bars below five-star category under the government’s phased prohibition policy Curiously Chandy spared the Opposition even though Saritha had at one time alleged that Communist Party of India (Marxist) that heads the LDF had offered her Rs 10 crore for raising allegations against the government “Big money centres and interests are behind Saritha’s allegations Those who can make gains if the UDF suffered in the upcoming Assembly elections are behind it’’ said the Chief Minister who has already filed a defamation suit against Saritha and two television channels which aired her allegations Jacob thinks that the Opposition’s attempt to portray Chandy as an immoral man may not yield them any electoral dividend to them as the latter has not faced any corruption or sexual allegations in his political career spanning more than five decades N P Chekutty another political commentator thinks such attempt could even boomerang on the Opposition He said that the type and manner of the allegations against the Chief Minister clearly showed that they were inspired by forces with ulterior motives “Chandy was never tainted by personal compromises in his long political career He was too open always That was perhaps the only mistake he committed He has admitted it No level-headed person in Kerala will believe that Chandy has committed any financial or sexual misdemeanor” says Chekutty He says that it would be difficult for anybody to swallow Saritha’s allegation that she had handed over about Rs 2 crores to one of his aides in a public place in Delhi She could not produce any visual or other evidence regarding the bribe so far he added Chekutty said he would not be surprised if the Opposition avoids the solar scam in their election campaign They have already started playing down the allegations leveled by Saritha and Biju Radhakrishnan Chekutty pointed out that there was no dip in the popularity of Chandy despite all these allegations “People throng him wherever he goes I don’t think there is any other leader like Chandy who has contacts everywhere from the northern tip of the state to the southern tip” In fact a recent Mathrubhumi-Axis My India pre-poll survey showed that Chandy was the second most popular leader after Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan He was only one point below Achuthanandan in the survey which was conducted between 26 February and 13 March The survey predicted 68 to 74 seats for the LDF and 66 to 72 seats for the UDF Both Chekutty and Jacob do not think that the Chief Minister and the UDF are on a safe wicket with regard to the bar bribery charges They believe that the Opposition has a strong case in not only the bar bribery scam but also the land scam which came to the fore towards the fag end of the UDF regime “The LDF need not work hard to take home the issue since state Congress Chief V M Sudheeran himself has done their job His dogged insistence on denying ticket to two ministers and a sitting MLA involved in the scams in itself is a strong indictment of the government” says Jacob The UDF is trying to counter the corruption charges by focusing on the development and welfare measures implemented by the government in the last five years Kochi Metro Kannur airport Vizhinjam container transshipment terminal Smart City are some of the projects are being flaunted by the UDF But with caste and religious combinations changing with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sowing the seed for a Hindu consolidation by stitching together a third front with the help of caste organisations like the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNDP) Yogam it is not easy to say whether Kerala will go by the trend of alternating power between the two
