ruckus The BJP enjoys a brute majority in Lok Sabha however the government’s minority status in the Rajya Sabha has stalled several important elements of its legislative agenda The National Democratic Alliance currently has 85 seats in the 245-member Upper House However the historic win in Uttar Pradesh which sends the maximum number of legislators to the Upper House and latest political maneuvers in Gujarat and Bihar are likely to place the saffron party in a more comfortable stead The BJP-led NDA has often been accused of taking the ordinance route to bypass parliamentary scrutiny The Opposition has also blamed the BJP of passing key policy legislation as money bills to avoid discussion in Rajya Sabha where it has a minority status Money bills as defined in the Constitution of India Act 110 can only be introduced in Lok Sabha which the Rajya Sabha cannot stall or amend without the Lower House’s concurrence Patna: Taking a serious note of rape charges levelled against its

Yadav’s supporters demanded the presence of a magistrate to collect the forensic evidence SHO said PTI Washington: The United Nations has appealed to the entire international community to keep the political differences aside and support the ongoing humanitarian efforts to help Rohingya Muslim refugees "We have made very clear our concern at the ongoing tragedy of the Rohingyas people who have been forced to leave their homes The reports we’re getting the pictures all of us are seeing are heart-breaking to say the least" Stephane Dujarric spokesperson to the UN Secretary-General told reporters at his daily noon conference at the UN headquarters in New York Representational image Reuters "I think the entire international community should support the ongoing humanitarian efforts regardless of politics These are people in need These are very vulnerable people who have crossed the border who’ve as we said are hungry and are malnourished and deserve to be helped" he said The spokesperson was responding to a question on role of regional players in helping Rohingya refugees "Are youdisappointed that major regional players including in India in particular have actually sort of made their stand about this Rohingya crisis very clear and actually not come out and supported when their support could have been quite crucial" he was asked United Nation’s humanitarian wing he said have done emergency planning for about 300000 Rohingya refugees "That number has now definitely crossed that line We are urgently appealing for more funds" he said "Whether it’s UNHCR WFP and other agencies (we) are trying to get as much aid into the country as quickly as possible Obviously from what we’ve read out we haven’t been able to reach all the people that we need to "The added challenge is that a lot of people are crossing the border going to makeshift settlements or otherwise living outside more organised structures which could make it easier for us to reach them" he said Dujarric said the government of Bangladesh has asked the UN to help establish a new camp to house the newly arrived refugees A flight chartered by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees(UNHCR) carrying emergency aid — such as shelter materials sleeping mats and other supplies — for Rohingya refugees has landed in Bangladesh The cargo has been loaded onto trucks which will bring the supplies to the refugee camps at Cox’s Bazar A second flight donated by the United Arab Emirates has also landed in Bangladesh carrying some 2000family tents The supplies in both flights will help 25000refugees and further flights are planned so that 120000people can be reached in total For its part WFP is concerned about the health of women and children who are arriving in Bangladesh hungry and malnourished WFP has been providing food to some 70000people as they arrive in Cox’s Bazar and to nearly 60000people living in camps and makeshift settlements in the region he said Across the border in Myanmar UN continue to be concerned about reports of violence fires and displacement of tens of thousands of people in Rathedaung township in Rakhine State "Most aid activities on the part of UN agencies and international non-governmental organisations across northern Rakhine remain either suspended or severely interrupted although some assistance is being delivered by the government and through the Red Cross" he said "The UN and its partners continue to offer support to the government to meet the needs of all affected communities and are liaising with authorities to resume humanitarian operations as soon as possible" the UN Spokesperson said Cobham: Antonio Conte insists he has no reason to fear for his future at Chelsea after bookmakers suspended betting on the Italian being sacked Conte has only been in charge at Stamford Bridge since July but he had to answer questions about his job security on Friday following heavy betting on his imminent dismissal 24 hours earlier Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is notorious for acting quickly when he feels a manager is underachieving and last season he sacked Jose Mourinho eight months after his team won the Premier League But although Chelsea have endured some difficult moments in the early stages of Conte’s reign including consecutive lacklustre defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal it would be a bizarre move to axe the Italian after only nine games File photo of Chelsea manger Antonio Conte Reuters Chelsea have made it clear they have no intention of wielding the axe and Conte was relaxed when quizzed ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with champions Leicester "I take this with a smile I’m trying to find who bet the money" Conte told reporters at Chelsea’s training ground "I have good communication and a good relationship with the club "It’s very difficult to talk about this situation I’m focused about my work I’m focused to improve the team " After spending the majority of his managerial career with Italian clubs whose owners are famous for hiring and firing with remarkable regularity Conte isn’t fazed by his first taste of England’s version of the sack race "The pressure is the same It’s normal to be under pressure also for the players" he said "When you are in a club you want to win and do good work The pressure is part of our job It’s the same in other countries "We are working very hard to change the situation of the past the whole of the last season "We are trying to bring something important for the present and the future" Big challenges While he remains confident about his future with Chelsea after failing his first two big tests against Liverpool and Arsenal Conte can ill-afford to finish the next two matches without positive results Home games against Leicester and Manchester United will provide further evidence of how far Chelsea have come under Conte who said: "These are two big challenges "Leicester won the title last season and are playing a good Champions League "Then with Manchester United they are another great team but in this moment we must think about ourselves and not the other team" Conte’s major problem so far has been a shaky defence that had leaked goals at an alarming rate The former Juventus coach responded by switching to a formation with three central defenders and the result was a 2-0 win at Hull in their last game before the international break Conte will stick with that formation against Leicester but he has to decide whether to keep faith with David Luiz Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta or recall captain John Terry after he recovered from an ankle injury "Yes John is available he came back for training in the middle of the week and did all the sessions" Conte said "It was necessary to find a solution because it is not right for a great team like Chelsea to concede so many goals in those games "Now I have four central defenders and one must go on the bench" Conte also needs to get the best out of Eden Hazard the mecurial Belgium midfielder who this week expressed a desire to be used by Chelsea in the number 10 role he enjoys with his country Showing no signs of bowing to Hazard’s wishes Conte said: "Now we are finding the best solution for the players and their talent "In the last game against Hull we played a good game Hazard and Costa played very well and did what I want Now we must continue this way" New Delhi:From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to eminent sports personalities the country was wholesome in its praise for the Indian hockey team’s gutsy effort that
