India’s 2019 ICC World Cup Squad Announced

Agartala, April 15,2019:The hot debate around who will be India’s second wicket-keeper to back up for Mahendra Singh Dhoni has finally ended as Dinesh Karthik has been named in the 15-member national squad at the expense of Rishabh Pant for the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup, which is slated to take place in England and Wales from May 30 to July 14.

 

The decision came after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), along with skipper Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri, held a meeting in Mumbai for the selection of the Indian squad for the showpiece event.

Reflecting on Karthik’s selection, chief selector MSK Prasad confirmed that the second wicketkeeper would only play in the World Cup if regular wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni gets injured.

Prasad further said that Pant was quite close to selection, but he missed out on wicketkeeping skills.

Another important decision for the BCCI was to decide who will fill up the No.4 slot in the Indian squad with the likes of KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar and Ambati Rayadu all pushing their cases for the World Cup selection.

The national selectors have decided to rope in Shankar for the No.4 position, while KL Rahul has been named in the Indian squad as the reserve opener.

Commenting on Shankar’s inclusion, the chief selector said that the BCCI had tried playing a few players after the Champions Trophy including Ambati Rayudu, but what Shankar brings is three dimensional.

Meanwhile, Prasad also revealed that left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed’s name was also discussed during the selection meeting.

Virat Kohli will continue to lead the Indian squad at the 50-over mega event, while Rohit Sharma will serve as his deputy.

India will kickstart their campaign at the mega event against South Africa on June 5. The full Indian squad for the 2019 ICC World Cup is as follows:

Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Kedar Jadhav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dinesh Karthik, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar.

Mamata Banerjee meets PM Narendra Modi, urges him to write off West Bengal's debt

Kolkata, Sept 18,2019: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital during which she took up the issues of pending projects in her state.Speaking to reporters after meeting the PM, Mamata said, ''We have been demanding Centre's support on changing Bengal's name. I have reminded the PM  about it. My MPs had met him.''

''I have requested the Prime Minister to attend the programme for world's second-largest coal block Deocha Pachami in Birbhum district after Navratri puja. The project is worth Rs 12,000 crores,'' the West Bengal CM said.

The Trinamool Congress chief said that she has given papers on what her government has done in recent years in Bengal.

''We have asked him to write off Bengal's debt. I will try to meet the Home Minister too,'' Mamata said. 

She categorically said that it was a meeting between two governments and not much should be read into it politically.

The firebrand TMC leader also refused to answer questions related to CBI's ongoing probe into the Saradha chit fund scam.    

Interestingly, Banerjee had got Kolkata-made sweets delivered to PM Modi's 7, Lok Kalyan Marg residence, a day before their meeting.

Banerjee flew to Delhi on Tuesday, which was also PM Modi`s birthday.

Her meeting with the PM comes at a time when the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is trying to locate her close aide and former Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar for questioning in connection with the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam case.

Mamata's meeting with the PM has triggered intense speculations in the political circles and the Bengal unit chief of the Congress party, Somen Mitra, has accused the West Bengal CM of making a desperate bid to ensure an "escape route" for Kumar, who is currently untraceable

Set Aside Vendetta Politics, Fix Economy, Manmohan Singh Tells Centre

Agartala, Sept 1,2019 ( news agencies):The state of the economy today is deeply worrying, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said, adding that "all-round mismanagement" by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government has resulted in the slowdown. The veteran Congress leader's comments come two days after government data showed that India's economy expanded at its slowest pace in over six years in the quarter ended June 30.

Growth in the country's gross domestic product (GDP) stood at 5 per cent in the first quarter of current financial year (2019-20), compared with 5.8 per cent in the previous quarter, and 8.0 per cent in the quarter ended June 30, 20185.8 per cent in the previous quarter, and 8.0 per cent in the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

"India cannot afford to continue down this path. Therefore, I urge the government to put aside vendetta politics, and reach out to all sane voices and thinking minds, to steer our economy out of this man-made crisis," Dr Manmohan Singh said in a video statement.

"The last quarter's GDP growth rate of 5 per cent signals that we are in the midst of a prolonged slowdown," he said, adding that the country has the potential to grow at a much faster rate.

Dr Manmohan Singh is widely recognised for the economic reforms which he announced in 1991 when he was the Finance Minister in the Narasimha Rao government.

Sliding for the fifth quarter in a row, economic expansion came in at the slowest pace since the March 2013 quarter, when it had stood at 4.3 per cent. A slowdown in the sale of cars to biscuits and lakhs of estimated job cuts across sectors plagued the economic growth of the country, say analysts.

In its bid to push investments and revive growth, the government has announced a range of measures in the past few days, including easing of FDI or foreign direct investment norms in four sectors, and a reversal of higher taxes on foreign investors as announced in Budget.

On Friday, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced reforms in the banking sector, merging several public sector banks.
