Tag: 夜上海419龙凤

first_imgThe Allahabad High Court on Friday directed the Uttar Pradesh government to start issuing fresh licences and no-objection certificates (NOCs) to meat traders in the State while also renewing existing licences. The court also rejected the State’s contention that ensuring the functioning and modernisation of slaughterhouses was not its responsibility and said the responsibility for constructing slaughterhouses lay with the local municipal corporations. It also said the State could not prevent people from eating meat.Order on PIL pleasA Lucknow Division Bench of Justices A.P Shahi and Sanjai Harkauli passed the interim order while hearing a bunch of 27 PIL petitions filed against the blanket shutting down of slaughterhouses and meat shops in the State after the BJP came to power in March.The court also directed the State to file its reply by July 17, the next date of hearing, and apprise it of the steps taken to find a solution to the issue of slaughterhouses and meat shops. The court said it was giving the State “ample time” to “gear up its machinery for taking positive action in the matter.”The court directed the concerned departments of the State and local bodies to renew the licenses of slaughterhouses and also issue licences based on prescribed norms. The local bodies will obliged to consider and grant No Objection Certificates as and where required under the 2011 Regulations, it said.Allow lawful activity“The inaction of the State Government in the past should not be a shield for imposing a state of almost prohibition. To provide an immediate check on unlawful activity should be simultaneous with facilitating the carrying of lawful activity, particularly that relating to food, food habits and vending thereof that is undisputedly connected with the right to life and livelihood,” the court said it its order.The court also directed the State to circulate the order among all Divisional Commissioners and District Magistrates in the State as well as local bodies so that they can provide all material to the State for implementation of the policy and removal of all obstacles.Soon after coming to power, the Yogi Adityanath government had directed administrative and police authorities to shut down or seal slaughterhouses in the State which according to it were running unlawfully or were unregistered. However, with the abattoirs, the State also shut down meat shops, throwing thousands of livelihoods into crisis. Those involved in the trade had argued that the action was arbitrary and violated their right to livelihood.The State had contended that it was under no obligation to construct slaughter houses or make provisions for them and was merely acting against illegal setups in accordance with the norms of the National Green Tribunal (NGT). V. K Singh, counsel for the meat traders, said the court’s order was a clear “rejection” of the State’s stand.last_img read more

first_imgThe Assam government has sent a proposal to the Centre for fast-tracking the establishment of 10 detention centres across the State to house people who would be excluded from the final National Register of Citizens (NRC).The Supreme Court-monitored register, being updated on the basis of its 1951 avatar, has to be published by July 31.Officials said each of the 10 new centres would accommodate an estimated 3,000 people. This implies the government has plans for at least 60,000 people among a few lakh expected to be excluded from the NRC. NRC exclusionAbout 40.07 lakh people out of 3.29 crore applicants had been excluded from the draft NRC published on July 30, 2018. Another 1.02 lakh people were removed from the draft list of citizens on June 26.The excluded have been given an opportunity to file claims for reinclusion in the NRC. “We have sent the proposal for 10 new centres in various places for NRC-excluded people,” Kumar Sanjay Krishna, Assam’s Additional Chief Secretary (Home and Political) told The Hindu on Wednesday. As per the blueprint, a detention centre each would be established in Barpeta, Dima Hasao, Goalpara, Kamrup (Metropolitan), Karimganj, Lakhimpur, Nagaon, Nalbari, Sivasagar, and Sonitpur districts.Mr. Krishna also said a full-fledged detention centre was being readied in Goalpara district for declared foreigners presently lodged across six central jails in the State. The Supreme Court had ordered the State government not to club declared foreigners with criminals in jails. The Assam government had three years ago allotted 20 bighas of land for this detention centre in the Dakurbhita area of Goalpara district. Constructed by the Assam Police Housing Corporation Ltd. at a cost of ₹37 crore, the centre is expected to be inaugurated in October.Envisaging law and order issues after July 31, the deadline given by the Supreme Court to publish the final NRC, the State Home Department has organised a series of meetings from July 12-23 across six divisions of Assam.Heads of administration, police and intelligence agencies of the districts under each division have been asked to attend the meetings to be held in Tezpur, Nagaon, Jorhat, Silchar, Bongaigaon, and Guwahati. The Bharatiya Gorkha Parisangha (BGP) has suggested that the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Election Commission of India should adopt a mechanism to solve the issue of ‘D’, or doubtful voters for a free and fair NRC in Assam.“We met Prateek Hajela, the State Coordinator for NRC on Tuesday,” said Nanda Kirati Dewan, the BGP’s National Secretary. “He made it clear that NRC cannot reconsider the cases of people marked D-voter even if he or she has sufficient linkage documents and the legacy person [one whose lineage is claimed] or other family members are not D-voters,” Mr. Dewan added. “Data suggest that most cases of exclusion are either of D-voter, cases pending at a Foreigners’ Tribunal (FT), declared foreigner or instances of mismatch in legacy data. But there are many marked D-voters without any case referred to the Assam Police’s border wing or any FT. The Centre should come up with a mechanism to screen such cases and issue a D-Voter Clearance Certificate to the person concerned for ending unnecessary harassment,” Mr. Dewan suggested.last_img read more
