Climate portals like @Fridays4future India , #LetIndiaBreathe , The Is No Earth B were blocked for several days and issued notices under anti terror law UAPA. #DelhiPolice later withdrew the notices. Websites were subsequently unblocked. But why was this done Thread continues...
These websites have been writing to the Govt against #EIA2020draft & spreading awareness about the problematic clauses in the draft... Action was allegedly taken because they allegedly spammed mailbox of Environment Ministry and Ministry. Thread continues....
The deadline for response to the Draft is till August 10. Govt had set a June deadline but Delhi HC ordered the extension in the light of #Lockdown so that people get enough time to respond, participate, object to any problematic clauses in #EIA2020draft ... Thread continues...

#axone #northeast #Netflix
A well-told story doesn't pretend to talk about big subjects and take a higher ground. It simply puts you amidst people and lets you watch. Axone is one such piece of cinema that does that profoundly.
It shows you how a task as simple as cooking a traditional regional food could turn out to be extremely difficult. The ordeal you have to go through to organize a bare minimum event for a loved one when you are far from your home.
It doesn't preach. It focuses on small things we all face and can relate to, like cooking, dealing with friends and neighbours. And through them, it makes a point.

Thousands of women and children are trafficked to and from the #Northeast, across international borders. From children who are brought to work in rat hole mines in Meghalaya to young girls who are sold into prostitution—the issue was a systematic failure.
The only way to combat it effectively was to develop a comprehensive anti-human trafficking model that could be applied not just in India but across South East Asia.
And that’s exactly what @HasinaKharbhih & her @ImpulseNGO team did. The Impulse model brings govt depts, law enforcement agencies, judiciary, civil society orgs, pvt institutions & the media to pool in their resources to tackle the complex issue.

1/10 I’ve been talking to the Procurement Team @Newcastlehosps today. My word, they have done a wonderful job over the last few months in the most difficult circumstances, and I know it’s taken extreme hard work. (a thread)
2/10 Making sure that we had the right PPE and that it got to the right place at the right time has been the most important factor in helping staff to feel safe throughout the pandemic and I’m very proud of the whole team effort that made sure we didn’t run out of any PPE at all.
3/10 It was great to hear that clinical teams have thanked and appreciated the efforts from procurement, and that we all now have a much greater appreciation of what procurement is all about. It’s come out of the back office and into the frontline!

This is a MUST SEE video on the #Coronavirus in Italy. The #ICU intensivist explains the epidemic and treatment- Report From The Front Lines @JAMA_current - YouTube #Covid_19 #COVIDー19 #COVID
This is a good summary but somewhat inconsistent to what we have been hearing on #twitter about #italy. The question about triaging those sick and above 60 yo was NOT answered directly. He said the goal was for everyone to get an ICU bed but was that successful? 1/
There are many pictures of hazmat suits which is somewhat different and more aggressive than the reports we have been hearing about #coronavirus in Lombardy 2/

Popular Front of India operative Danish arrested by @DelhiPolice Special Cell rom Trilpkpuri in East Delhi for his role in #NorthEast riots . Danish was actively involved in provided funds to saboteurs & his arrest will throw more light on PFI's involvement in #AntiCAAProtests
Arrest of Danish, an active member of PFI is a huge development as it has led Delhi Police to the entire gamut of conspiracy that led to #NorthEast riots & how funds were provided for buying & arranging logistics.

Many of his points of critique on the Left/Nehru/Gandhi are valid in ways but hyper-exaggerated. He's plain wrong on the Constitution. And his idea of "hamara ilaaka" is as bad as Hindutva.

#SharjeelImam is a cocky, hot-headed scholar with a hero complex.

But a seditionist? No.
His right to be free from the outrageous sedition charge has to be defended against the fact that it was #SharjeelImam who first wanted #ShaheenBagh wound up. When he pulled out in early Jan, he declared in a cock-sure tone that the movement would "die a natural death tonight".
Why? Only because it was not going according to some grand plan cooking in his head. A self-imagined vanguard, Sharjeel couldn't quite countenance the idea that the women at the centre of Shaheen Bagh had will, desire, agency and sense-making capacity of their own.

My own position on #CAA2019 has been - it is sound in principle (read @pratimbose article👇) and nothing wrong constitutionally (as explained by none other than Harish Salve). But, I anticipate serious issues in implementation. Therefore, other than the #NorthEast #CABProtests /2
#CABPolitics e.g. in #Assam where it is a live issue (but religion agnostic as they are against all immigrants changing the demographics of the region) for the rest of India it is largely an academic issue. Therefore, #CABProtests in the name of “secularism” ill-conceived 3/n
3/n Besides, #CAA2019 has been passed by an act of Parliament and not by any Presidential Diktat. If it has to be undone - it cannot be through violence and vandalism. Those upholding the Constitutional values - must also adopt democratic means and not promote mobocracy #CAB 4/n

Sharing a post by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay, a friend's friend who I do not know, in which he writes about his experiences of growing up as a #Bengali in #Assam in the '80s and '90s. Though I do not know him, I know and share that experience about being an insider/outsider. Thread...
//I am a Bengali. I was born in Cooch Behar (now in WB) and since my father was posted in various parts of the #NorthEast, I spent 16 years of my life in that beautiful part of the country, mostly in the lovely little town of Dibrugarh, #Assam.//
//I went to school there, had very good friends, went through all the fond and not-so-pleasant phases of teenage, a decent childhood overall. Back in the day, I sometimes overheard my parents and others talk about the 'Bongali Kheda' (roughly 'Drive the Bengalis Out') movement.//

A short #Thread to dispel doubts on #CitizenshipAmendmentBill2019
Q) Does the Bill disallow citizenship for #Muslim migrants ?
A) NO , The bill merely mandates any #Muslim migrant to spend 11 yrs resident in #India before applying for citizenship.
Q) Does #CitizenAmendmentBill discriminate against #Muslims who are citizens of #India or remove any privilege of citizenship they hold?
A) No, the #CABBill makes no comment on the citizenship of existing #Muslim citizens.
Q) Why does the bill disallow #Muslim migrants from #Pakistan #Afghanistan & #Bangladesh from it's ambit.
A) The Bill is meant to provide a safety valve for minorities in adjoining nations who do not wish to live under a #Islamic regime. #Muslims are a majority in these nations.

You may know that the best cadet in the National Defense Academy is given a gold medal

But do you know that the name of that medal is "Lachit Borphukan"?

After reading this #Thread, you will come to know why the leftist & Mughal historians did not allow this name to reach us
Have you ever wondered why the Muslim rulers & Mughals who persecuted the whole of North India could never occupy #NorthEast India ahead of Bengal?

Reason was the Hindu Param Vir warrior "Lachit Borphukan", was the king of Ahom kingdom (today's Assam) @vivekagnihotri @ShankhNaad
Aurangzeb's dream of ruling the whole of India was incomplete without taking possession of eastern India

Due to this ambition Aurangzeb sent a large army to fight Ahom Raj @sambhashan_in @TejasOmkara @ABDharmadhikari @Sanjay_Dixit @PushpendraKuls4

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina

Last week I did the first edition of Zamfara in the last 7 days. The series focuses on the human calamity that is unfolding in the state & environs with a view to draw attention. In this edition I'm looking at attacks in Maru & Shinkafi LGAs.
The attacks in these Local Government Areas resulted in scores of fatalities, abduction of dozens and displacements of thousands of persons in Zamfara state.
Apart from pockets of attacks that often go unreported; the attack by bandits in Dokar Alasan village in Dangulbe district in Maru LGA on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 took the lives of 15 villagers. Within this period over 10 clusters of villages were attacked by bandits.

The demand for #BogibeelBridge started in early 1960s. Even the Chinese aggression couldn't wake successive #Congress govts to move an inch towards realising people's dream of a much needed bridge.
People struggled for decades, students fought with successive Congress govts but they wont blink. Ultimately, it took the might of #AssamAgitation to take note of #BogibeelBridge demand.
1985: #Assam Accord was signed whereby #BogibeelBridge was committed by #Congress government led by then Prime Minister late #RajivGandhi. A demand - among many others - that was acknowledged after martyrdom of 855 young students of #Assam
