#SC gives green signal to #OBC reservation in local elections in #MadhyaPradesh; directs MP #ElectionCommission to notify local body #election in one week
It's a historic day. Satyamev Jayate! It has been proven again that truth can't lose. I thank SC. We had said we want polls but with OBC reservation. Congress had sinned & had gone to SC due to which it was earlier directed that polls would be held without OBC reservation: MP CM
Delhi | Madhya Pradesh had a backward population of 50%. As per the Supreme Court, it can only be done for 14%, this is injustice. BJP didn't present the case properly in court. We'll look into it from a legal point of view: Congress leader & former Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath

#MadhyaPradesh High Court recently heard a PIL alleging that All India Muslim Personal Law Board and their Quazi/Kazi are running a parallel judicial system.

The Petitioner had alleged that the Kazi are running their own courts and passing orders/decrees in personal matters.
Adil (the petitioner) had alleged that on his wife's application for divorce by "Khula" under 'Kanoon-A-Shariat', the Chief Quazi of Darul Kaza Chhawani, Indore, (#MadhyaPradesh) had granted the Talaq despite his opposition which is 'not permissible' under Indian judicial system.
However, refuting allegations of a parallel judicial system, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board had submitted that the personal law relating to marriage and its dissolution has to be governed by the personal law of Muslims in terms of their religious denominational texts.

#Hindu #Funerary Monuments - Chhatri

Chhatri is a memorial chapel built over a #tomb found throughout the region of #Rajasthan, #MadhyaPradesh and #Maharashtra. These memorials commemorate the death of rulers, their consorts, relatives and the elite. 1/🧵
If Samadhis were funerary monuments of saints in #Hindus, Chhatris were #Rajput's choice of the memorial. They made sure that the memory of the chivalry of their ancestors passed on to the next generations. Though, all Chhatris did not necessarily contain the mortal remains. 2/
Chhatri i.e. umbrella, first appeared as a canopy above the tomb in #Islamic #architecture. #Hindu kings transformed the tomb into Chhatri. By the 16th C, Rajput courts had started building Chhatris. It was a place where a noble was cremated, memorialized and later worshipped. 3/

#Breaking | Don’t know who was worst -former Health Min who launched Baba Ramdev’s 'Coronil' or the current who has declared that 'no deaths due to #O2 shortage': #Congress' @JaiveerShergill hits out at the Union Govt over the latter's reply in the Parliament.
#PriyankaGandhi tweets over the #Central govt's reply in Parliament that no one died due to lack of oxygen.

'The deaths happened because, in the pandemic year, the government increased oxygen exports by 700%', says Priyanka Gandhi.
Health is a State subject. Reporting deaths and the reason for it is the job of State Govts and UTs. We have had #Maharashtra Govt tell the #HighCourt that no one died of oxygen shortage. This lack of empathy has been the case with others too: #BJP leader @amitmalviya.

Using the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare’s Statewise Covid Hospital Report, we found that the ratio of hospital beds to patients in Delhi is approximately 1 bed for 190 people, and is one of the highest ratios amongst all states.
Despite that, we saw the severe scarcity of hospital beds and medical infrastructure during the second wave of COVID- 19.

What about our other states and villages that have even lesser medical resources? How are they placed to protect themselves against the #COVID19Pandemic?
In view of the catastrophic second wave in #MadhyaPradesh, it is crucial to zoom into health infrastructure to gauge its preparedness - even as cases slowly decline.

We found that the ratio of #hospitalbeds to patients in Madhya Pradesh is approximately 1 bed for 640 people.
