The Kerala High Court on Thursday directed the state government to provide police protection to Adani Ports’ under construction Vizhinjam port project which is facing protests. The court also directed the protestors should not trespass into the port premises and that they should agitate peacefully outside it. The construction work should not be obstructed, the court ordered. The order came on a plea moved by Adani Ports, which is constructing the Vizhinjam port in Thiruvananthapuram, seeking protection from protesters and alleging that the police and the government were not taking any action in this regard. A large number of coastal people have been staging strong protest outside the main entrance of the multi-purpose seaport, located at nearby Mulloor in Thiruvananthapuram, since August 16 pressing their seven-point charter of demands including stopping the construction work and to conduct a coastal impact study in connection with the multi-crore project.

In June, the directorate recommended an extension of the duty on imports for two more years. “…the central government after considering the final findings of the designated authority (DGTR) has decided not to accept the recommendations,” the department of revenue has said in an office memorandum.
The Delhi Assembly on Thursday passed with voice vote and vote division the confidence motion tabled by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to “prove” that the BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’ in the capital had failed. All AAP MLAs present in the House voted in favour of the motion. There was no vote against it as three BJP MLAs Vijender Gupta, Abhay Verma and Mohan Singh Bisht were marshalled out of the Assembly following an argument with Deputy Speaker Rakhi Birla, who did not heed their demand to take up their calling attention notices before a discussion on the confidence motion. The rest of them walked out in protest. Trying to project the AAP as an alternative to the BJP, Kejriwal said there are only two parties at the national level at present — ‘Kattar Imandar (hardcore honest) party and Kattar Beimaan (hardcore corrupt) party’. 
A Ganesh pandal set up on the theme of the under-construction Ram temple in Ayodhya is attracting huge crowds in Gujarat’s Surat city, with the organisers saying its pillars and lighting give visitors a feel of actually being inside the temple.

The sprawling pandal, spread across 125 X 65 metres area, has been erected on Bhatar road by a group of people engaged in making pandals for the Ganesh Chaturthi festival for the last 25 years.

Normal service on all other lines,” the DMRC tweeted. 
Pakistan’s top climate and environmental experts believe that the effects of global warming are throwing up surprises as they warned that the devastating floods in the country are just a beginning and weather changes will be harsher and more extreme in the coming years. Pakistan is witnessing unprecedented floods that has claimed more than 1,100 lives, destroyed infrastructure and crops, and affected 33 million people or one-seventh of the country’s population. The natural disaster has forced the government and the United Nations to launch a Flash Appel this week for USD 160 million in assistance to help the country overcome the impact of the floods. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who met some foreign diplomats recently in Islamabad, said that more than 33 million people had been badly affected by the flash floods and torrential rainfalls. He said that Pakistan’s carbon emission footprint was negligible but it was ranked at the 8th position among the countries exposed to the horrors of climate change.

The US Navy “harboured toxic secrets” when jet fuel contaminated drinking water for 93,000 military members and civilians in Hawaii, according to a lawsuit filed from four families who say they’re still suffering from seizures, gastrointestinal disorders and neurological issues. Hundreds of additional claims are expected from those who ingested the toxic water, said the lawsuit filed in US District Court in Honolulu on Wednesday. Others going through the administrative process of the Federal Tort Claims Act will be added to the lawsuit.

Among others named in the lawsuit is Professor Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the World Economic forum.
The Kremlin treaded carefully Wednesday reacting to Mikhail Gorbachev’s death, praising his prominent role in reshaping 20th-century history but noting his “romantic” view of the West. The Kremlin’s ambivalence was reflected in the uncertainty about funeral arrangements. An iconic central venue chosen for Saturday’s farewell ceremony has been used for state funerals since Soviet times, but Russian media reported that Gorbachev won’t be given that honour. The hesitant stance was mirrored by state television broadcasts, which paid tribute to Gorbachev as a historic figure but described his reforms as poorly planned and held him responsible for failing to safeguard the country’s interests in dialogue with the West.
The office of UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet has published its long-awaited report on alleged rights violations in China’s western Xinjiang region, brushing aside Beijing’s demands to keep a lid on a report that fanned a tug-of-war for diplomatic influence with the West over the rights of the region’s native Uyghurs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups.
