Arakan Army joined the war against the Tatmadaw in Kokang and Kachin states where the “Arakan Army recruited many members in the jade mining area of Hpakant Arakanese migrant workers in Mongla near the Chinese border and northern Shan State are also a source of recruitment for the group” Sources revealed that the rebels have been strengthening their base in at two locations along the border of Chin and Rakhine State for past two years The current clashes began in the first week of November after the Tatmadaw moved large columns near the region where the rebel cadres have pitched tent “They (Arakan Army) have amassed quite a large quantity of weapons in a short span according to the inputs we have received and their cadre strength has also gone up This is quite interesting since all these activities cost quite a lot of money” the source explained “The possibility of this group’s involvement in the narcotics trade cannot be ruled out” the source added Rajeev Bhattacharyya is a

component should be an integral part of smart cities at the conceptualisation stage" Rajnath Singh said at the 30th Intelligence Bureau Centenary Endowment Lecture in New Delhi The minister’s remarks came at a time when the central government is focusing to expedite smart city projects Since 2015 90 cities were selected in three rounds of national smart cities’ challenge After the selection of the smart cities a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of the central government released grants of Rs 986320 crore for 60 cities Of this the respective states have so far utilised only Rs 64477 crore official data said It said that 75 cities have established the SPV to support the implementation of the mission while 59 of the 90 cities have already hired project management consultants Rajnath Singh also stressed on an "intelligent traffic management system" in the smart cities considering the fact that the maximum deaths occurred due to road accidents The minister also advocated a focus on making ‘SMART’ police by 2022 when India will complete 75 years of independence and cautioned the force not to lose patience and wisdom while facing challenges "Police modernisation is very important to achieve the desired results and meet the challenges of cybercrime urbanisation and radicalisation There is a need for technology-driven policing Infrastructure and expertise need to be developed to meet these challenges" he said adding the ministry has set up two separate counterterrorism and counter-radicalization divisions The minister said the police needed to be cautious while using force against people especially youths and police personnel should use due wisdom and patience in dealing with such situations He said that police need to be strengthened in villages since 70 percent of the Indian population lived in villages and asked for the revival and strengthening of the old ‘chaukidari’ system The Minister praised the IB for its important role in successful police operations through supply of concrete information "The IB is making a major contribution in curbing the menace of terrorism and Naxalism" Mumbai: A 54-year-old ‘Anganwadi’ worker allegedly committed suicide in Parbhani district of Marathwada after being upset over non-payment of her salary for last few months and work pressure a police official said on Wednesday Sumitra Sawandkar ended her life on Tuesday morning by hanging herself at her home in Bordi village he said Representational image AFP She was working at the Nagangaon Anganwadi (government-run rural mother and child care centre) a few kilometres from her village since 2001 he said The police recovered a suicide note from her home in which she blamed non-payment of her salary for the last five months work pressure and the bad treatment meted out to her by her family members as the reasons for taking the extreme step the official said "We have recovered a suicide note in which Sawandkar has mentioned about frustration over non-payment since June" Parbhani’s Superintendent of Police Dileep Zalke told PTI The officials concerned had asked her for Anganwadi records which were apparently not maintained Sawandkar feared she may lose her job because of this and this might have led her to take the extreme step he said "We have registered an Accidental Death Report (ADR) in the case and a probe is underway" the SP said As per the police in the suicide note Sawandkar said "I am committing suicide due to non-payment and demand of registers since 2008 by officials" She also mentioned that instead of appreciating her for running the Anganwadi from a temple premises the government officials were asking her for records a police official said "The government doesn’t bother how I operated the Anganwadi They want registers I don’t have a single penny.to purchase register one needs Rs 1000 I don’t have money for photocopy and also require at least Rs 20 daily to commute to the Anganwadi in Nagangaon" she said in the note Sawandkar also mentioned about the protest marches and rallies taken out by Anganwadi workers in the past over their demands and requested the government to release the pending dues of workers and helpers the official said In the note she also alleged that her family members were not treating her well he said By: Express Web Desk | Updated: August 23 2017 6:28 pm The seriesbetween India and Sri Lanka will no longer witness the two teams singing their respective national anthems in the remaining ODI’s (Source: PTI) Top News The India vs Sri Lanka one-day series will no longer witness the practice of two teams singing their respective national anthems However the first T20 encounter between the two will once again see the two teams recite their anthems The latest development was confirmed bySri Lanka cricket team’s media manager Dinesh Ratnasingham “We have adopted the practice of singing National Anthem only at the beginning of each format of the game” Dinesh Ratnasingham said while speaking to pakobservercom “The practice of singing National Anthem was followed in the first ODI (on Sunday at Dambulla) and again it will be sung at the R Premadasa Stadium Colombo before the commencement of the only T-20 match (6th September) on this tour Rest of the venues will have the immediate start of the match without the Anthem Ceremony” he added It may be recalled here that in the first ODI both India and Sri Lanka had sung their national teams But henceforth with the adoption of this measure national anthems will only be sung in the first ODI of the series Meanwhile in the first ODI India registered a thumping win over Sri Lanka by 9 wickets Axar Patel picked up three wickets to restrict the hosts for a mere 216 However Shikhar Dhawan stole the show with a brilliant unbeaten 132 of just 90 deliveries He was ably supported by skipper Virat Kohli who scored 82 of just 70 balls Together they forged a partnership of 197 which is the second highest stand for India against Sri Lanka It was also India’s biggest win in terms of balls to spare For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Sandip G | Colombo | Updated: August 9 2017 10:10 am Former Sri Lankan wicket keeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara has called Kusal Mendis his heir (Source: Reuters) Related News A lush foliage of sprawling grandfatherly trees delinks the throbbing Colombo-Galle highway from the Tyronne Fernando Stadium once an international venue but now in decrepit shambles immune to the leaps to urbanity its Colombo cousins had taken There is a sports shop a dingy office room a spacious ground well-canopied on the edges and the Moratuwa Sports Club The dimly-lit hall of the club stinks of cheap liquor and is strewn with cigarette butts Apparently at dusk it turns into a watering hole the club’s oldies dusting up old memories But now there is only Jayalath Aponso the coach of Moratuwa Cricket Academy his three friends and the bartender All sober and quiet and leisurely watching a six-a-side game on the poya day The creases on Aponso’s forehead widen before in a low stuttering voice he says “You’ve come to meet Kusal’s coach” After a half-a-second pause he confirms with a welcoming nod “I’m his coach” Before he corrects himself: “(Rather) I was” However he seems to enjoy the new-found attention after his ward Kusal Mendis’ latest exploit — a breathtaking counter-attacking hundred against India on an inferno of a wicket playing sweep after sweep that gave Sri Lanka a glimmer of hope of drawing the match Maybe more than that he is being marvelled as the next big batsman from the country with some even suggesting that he could be the spiritual heir to the likes of Aravinda de Silva Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara The legendary left-hander had already announced that Mendis is not just his heir apparent but already his heir considerably more evolved than when he was 21 Not just the knock against India Mendis produced a similar effort of unrestrained aggression against Australia in Pallekele last year against Mitchell Starc at his furious best reverse swinging the ball to his whim in the second innings His arrival couldn’t have been better timed at a time when Sri Lanka are in the throes of an erratic transition when even some of the more established players are struggling to realise their optimal potential For chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya he affords an excuse when people blame him for Sri Lanka’s limp performances “I can show Kusal and tell them look how well the boy’s done” he says He is suddenly the toast of a nation Even his long-forgotten coach is getting his share of the attention “Yeah yeah” agrees Aponso He then slinks behind the bar door kneels down and from a pile of albums selects a few shabby ones and flips through them Sensing what the eyes are looking for he says: “There is no picture of Kusal I can take his picture anytime He’s my boy after all” he says turning his head and hand in the direction of Kusal’s new house There are several photographs of Aponso with Sachin Tendulkar Martin Crowe Graham Gooch and even Dermot Reeve “Taken when I was the assistant coach of the Sri Lankan team in the 90s” he proudly says Then he pulls out from the back of the album cover a Sinhalese newspaper clipping of Kusal Mendis with his parents It should be recent for its still glossy Pointing out his father he says: “He’s his real coach not me or any others Maybe he is fulfilling his own ambitions through his son” Crushed ambitions rather In the late 70s before his father Dinesh began plying a trickshaw to sustain his family he was an aspiring cricketer himself a regular in the local U-13 and U-15 side Some locals say he was more talented than Kusal but forsake his dreams for the family He dropped out of school and began helping his father with carpentry “He was good I’ve heard but I have only vague memories of his father playing cricket” Aponso says He though has a clear memory of Dinesh bringing Kusal to the academy “He told me he wanted me to coach his son I looked at the boy he must have been six or seven then and looked even younger and said that I can’t take him now I don’t remember Dinesh saying anything but the boy started crying before I finally agreed” he recollects The next morning Kusal was at the gate of the stadium with a kit considerably larger than him “I asked his father why he can’t carry the kit The reply stunned me He told me he had to get used to it He would watch his boy train and I have heard stories that he would observe me closely and repeat it to his son at home” he says Initially Aponso was a little apprehensive that Dinesh was a pushing his son too hard and used to give him just throwdowns “without any pace” But one day to his utter surprise he saw Kusal bowling leg-spin at the nets “Nobody had shown him how to bowl and the ball was comfortably reaching the batsman and even turning after pitching My brother told me we can groom him to be a spinner like I nurtured Kumar Dharmasena” he says But Aponso didn’t buy that idea He is a non-conformist He then flipped the sheets of his album and showed a black and white photograph of a noodle-haired man with a bushy French beard “Andy Roberts of Lanka eh” you ask him “No the Malinga before Malinga” intervenes the bartender “It was one of the reasons maybe I didn’t play for Sri Lanka” he says ripples of laughter echoing in the room Aponso’s methods were unorthodox he affirms “For the first month I tell my boys to bat just with the top hand If your top hand is steady you get more balance in your strokes and the head won’t fall over The bottom hand should be used only for support I used to bowl at good pace to them with my slinging action So they developed great reflexes too” he says At his academy every session was devoted to honing just one stroke “If it’s the day for sweeps they would only sweep and I made them play that shot a few hundred times everyday It develops their muscle memory” he points out No wonder Kusal is an outrageous sweeper Before his sweeps broke the heart of Indian bowlers he swept the hearts of the Barmy Army who played an exhibition match with the academy students during England’s tour of Sri Lanka “They were so impressed that they gave their bats to them and other cricketing gear to the academy Our boys still use them” he says laughing With more recognition and rewards Kusal’s visits to the academy became less frequent But he drops in occasionally to “seek my blessings” “He calls me before every big tour and will ask me if I spot anything I just tell him ‘stay focused you’re the next Sri Lankan captain’” It will be consummation of a father’s suppressed dreams “Sorry you can’t go to his house” chides the handlebar moustachioed security guy at the entrance of the Prince of Wales College It was just a casual enquiry about the direction to his house Seeing the perplexed face he explains in the same rebuking tone “You know he’s the next Sri Lanka captain An Indian going to his house might be considered fishy Who knows whether you’re a bookie or not” The Mendis’ moved out of their old locality just before the series against Bangladesh The new house is in Gorakana further down the Galle Road en route to Panadura It meant Fernando Zoyza doesn’t get to spend enough time with his friend Dinesh Zoyza runs a one-roomed “supermarket” which sells everything from grocery to stationary and fruits to soft drinks “Even beer too” he says Dinesh used to park his trickshaw at the nook of the bend into his “supermarket” “Before Kusal became a star we used to spent a lot of time chit-chatting here But these days I hardly see him But nice man struggled a lot for his family especially Kusal He worked everyday and carefully spent his money Until a few years ago he didn’t even have a mobile phone Who doesn’t these days” he asks Among the various struggles for making Kusal’s life better was finding a good school for him He first approached the prestigious St Sebastian’s School an institution of the elites But they didn’t give him admission despite “he being a Catholic” Zoyza stresses He finally managed to get him a seat at the Prince of Wales College “He had that hurt in his mind that he always used to score heavily against them But it made him an international cricketer” says Aponso But fame and a new house ushered in new perils A month after he moved into the new house a couple of burglars sneaked in and stole money and valuables worth LKR 3 lakhs “They caught them in two days” Zoyza says triumphantly After all he’s the future Sri Lankan captain Forget the bookie part There is an immense popular perception that he would go on to become Sri Lanka captain His former U-15 coach Sumith Fernando laughs when he hears this “I can’t tell you he’ll be our captain but he definitely can be our number one batsman if he already isn’t But he has a lot of leadership skills” he says He remembers Kusal as a silent boy with an occasional streak of mischief He didn’t mind that as long he worked hard on his batting “He was a boy who wanted to do everything ‘keeping bowling and batting And he worked equally hard on everything By the time he was in the U-13 team he had already developed his batting much more than any youngster of his age” he says It’s not just Fernando who throws in the the mature-than-his age allusion Even Sangakkara has voiced it several times “At his age I couldn’t match” he had once said The former skipper seems to have a special affection for him and was once livid when the selectors dropped him When Mendis was in England for the Champions Trophy he used to visit Sangakkara’s house in London and get tips from him “He’s like that will eat your brains the sort of kids coaches love He was always our pet” His maturity beyond his age is a reason former coach Graham Ford made him bat at No 3 despite several (relatively) senior players in the side It’s perhaps a reason he is anointed the future captain too The Prince and Princess of Wales Colleges are divided by an oval-shaped ground without even a smattering of grass On the elevated fence is a billboard that reads: “Cambrian Sing Along with Sohan and the X-periments” There is also a picture of Kusal beside it “Did he come for the function” you ask the big-moustache security guy “Look at the date How could he have come on that day” The day was August 5 The day he scored his valiant hundred against India Moratuwians knows their dates well and are assured of their boy’s date with destiny The quaint old Tyronne Fernando Stadium too might get a fresh coating of paint For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related

“more than 200” Goel also described the party’s decision to field only fresh faces as “bold” “The AAP’s drubbing in the Rajouri Garden by-poll is a clear indication We are going to put up an impressive show in the MCD polls as well” The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports told PTI The BJP has been ruling the MCD for the last 10 years After the trifurcation of the MCD in 2012 into North South and East Delhi Municipal Corporations (NDMC SDMC and EDMC) the first election was held the same year which was won by the saffron party The BJP currently has 153 sitting councillors but this time it has not fielded any of them and instead preferred all fresh faces The move has been described by the opposition parties including the Congress and the AAP as a “tactic to counter anti-incumbency” while the BJP maintains that the decision is to “give chance to the new generation” “The decision to field no sitting councillor is a bold one This will bring in the new generation and new faces who do not have cases against them corruption-related or otherwise “People have shown faith (in the BJP) in the Lok Sabha and the Uttar Pradesh (Assembly) elections Recently even in the Rajouri Garden by-poll the electorate gave us the indication” Goel said The MCD polls are due on April 23 and the campaigning of all the parties has hit the fever pitch before the dust settles in the rally grounds and the loudspeakers fall silent Both the AAP and the Congress have cornered the BJP over “civic mismanagement” in the city even as the saffron party has blunted the attack alleging that Kejriwal has “no interest” in the affairs of Delhi and he is only interested in “expanding his party’s footprint” beyond the national capital The AAP
