PM's passing mention of Indira Gandhi on her death anniversary

PM Narendra Modi flagging off the Run for Unity pays tribute to Indira Gandhi, who was assassinated this day in 1984, but passes it off in just one sentence: "Today is the Punya Tithi of Smt. Indira Gandhi."

Sardar Patel joined Mahatma Gandhi and integrated the farmers in the freedom struggle. Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel...their bond remained unbreakable. Through his skill, vision and Rashtra Bhakti Sardar Patel integrated the nation. We can never forget his contribution. Our culture and legacy is of Unity in Diversity. Let us rise over differences of creed, community, language."

Pankaj Advani Won World Billiards Championship

Pankaj Advani scores grand double at World Billiards Championship

Pankaj Advani

Pankaj Advani completed a clean sweep of the 150-up and Timed formats titles after trouncing England’s Robert Hall 1928-893 in the final of the World Billiards Championship in Leeds, on Wednesday night.

The ace Indian cueist, who clinched the 150-up short format crown last week, beating Singapore’s Peter Gilchrist in the final, was always in command as he registered breaks of 63, 185, 85, 92, 123, 94, 182, 289, 145, 94, 93, 59, 58, 62, 90 on his visits to the table in the Timed format final.

Hall, who was appearing in his first World Championship final, could only watch the accuracy of Advani’s potting. Breaks of 89, 64, 64, 86, 92, 64 were the best he could come up with.
At the end of the first session of 150 minutes, Advani led by 261 points (746-485).

“It’s always great to win outside home. I just can't describe my emotions now because it has been crazy here. I have also worked really hard to win some of the major tournaments this year," said Advani after the triumph.

Earlier in the day, the 29-year-old Advani held his nerve to edge past last year’s runner-up David Causier of England in the semi-finals by a mere five points, winning 1180-1175.
Hall got the better of Advani’s Bangalore mate Balachandra Bhaskar, 978-824 in the other semi-final.

Modi Govt. Taken his first step to bring back the black money

“Black Money Holders List” Given to Supreme Court

This morning, the NDA government submitted to the Supreme Court a 'secret 'list comprising names of Indians having accounts in foreign banks.

The Centre handed over the list with 627 names in a sealed cover to the court, which directed the government on Tuesday not to provide a "protective umbrella" to such persons.

Attorney general Mukul Rohatgi complied with the court order to submit the names of those hiding funds in Swiss bank accounts.   

"The government of India gave the entire list of HSBC accounts. There are about 627 accounts. We gave it in a sealed cover to the court," Rohatgi told reporters outside the court.

The apex court, however, did not open the envelope and observed that it be placed
before a special investigation team (SIT) probing the black money case.

The government also submitted two other sealed envelopes containing details of various treaties with foreign countries and the probe conducted by its agencies.

Only the SIT chairman and vice-chairman can open the envelopes, the court said, directing the crack team to submit a status report by the end of November.

The Narendra Modi government has sacked the heads of six Public Sector Unit banks. The move comes after the Chairman of Syndicate Bank was arrested on bribery charges in August.

A high-level panel report submitted to the government stated that there were irregularities in the selection process of the Chairman and Managing Directors of these banks.

A panel headed by the RBI Governor during the UPA rule had shortlisted the names for Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Indian Overseas Bank, Oriental Bank of Commerce, United Bank and Vijaya Bank. The government has now scrapped the process and decided to fill vacancies of 8 posts of CMDs and 14 posts of Executive Directors through a fresh process involving RBI Governor or his nominee.

A finance ministry statement said future vacancies of chairman and managing directors (CMDs) as well as executive directors of PSU banks will now be filled through a new selection process.
