the US air strikes in Iraq the CPM journal People’s Democracy has claimed that “US imperialism is once again intervening in Iraq in a duplicitous manner” “The ISIS and other extremist Islamic groups have arisen as a product of US intervention and assistance It was during the US occupation of Iraq that al-Qaeda took root in northern Iraq It is these forces which were supported and encouraged in Syria in the fight against the Assad government by the US and its allies… The ISIS rose as a military force in the Syrian civil war and has now crossed back into Iraq” an editorial in the latest issue has said Accusing the US of being “caught in a web of contradictions of its own making” it writes: “The US military interventions to outset the secular Arab governments first in Iraq and later in Libya have been accomplished by financing and supporting the Islamist forces and sectarian militias” Emphasising that the US must “stop this military intervention in Iraq” the editorial concludes that the “ISIS can be isolated and checked only by the forces of secular nationalism” New government The CPI’s New Age has accused the government of representing the “combination of corporate right reactionary ideology and the worst forms of communalism” “The Narendra Modi government has within two months bared its true intentions It has shamelessly pushed through the economic policies that were also implemented by the previous regime… Similarly the government is surrendering to pressures from multinationals whose cause is being promoted by Washington whose top bureaucrats and politicians have become most frequent visitors to New Delhi” an editorial alleges “As the external policies of the country are an extension of the domestic particularly economic policies there is reflection of this in the so-called ‘neutrality’ of the Modi sarkar over the brutal and inhuman attack by Israel on Gaza While the world has denounced the brutality and stark violation of human rights by aggressive Israeli forces our foreign minister wants to remain neutral as we have diplomatic relations with both parties” it says Questioning the prime minister’s style of functioning it has argued that he is “making all-out effort to concentrate power under him” “His style of functioning reflects as if he is not the prime minister under the parliamentary democratic system but running a presidential form of government For the purpose even basic parliamentary democratic norms are being openly flouted risking the annoyance of his own ministers There is a real danger to our democratic set up” it

the government’s own accountability” on a range of issues like rape sex-selective abortion farmer suicides and communal violence “In Modi’s speech there was a marked silence on the promise of ‘achhe din’ which each of his electoral speeches had harped upon Far from the promised relief change and new vision and policies what Modi’s government and his I-Day speech are doing is simply to repackage old unfulfilled schemes as a brand new vision of development” an editorial states dissecting each element of the speech “The people of India will not be fobbed off with rhetoric anymore They will be looking at the government’s policies and actions on the ground And attempts to repackage and rebrand price rise land grab and exploitation of cheap labour by Indian corporations and MNCs as

protection law the Supreme Court seems to be pulling in a contrary direction It has asked Prashant Bhushan appearing on behalf of the Centre for Public Interest Litigation to share under sealed cover the source of the photocopy of the damaging visitors book at the residence of CBI chief Ranjit Sinha The action reopens a debate over source protection which began over 100 years ago with the sedition trial of Sri Aurobindo when Bipin Chandra Pal was jailed for refusing to confirm that Aurobindo had written an anonymous tract that he published Of course whistleblower protection can never be absolute but balanced against the public and the national interest But how would establishing the source advance the case against Sinha who has denied the authenticity of the document For he has done this rather erratically with the percentage of veracity seesawing like a market index Besides if documentary authenticity is the moot issue there are technical means to appraise it The handwriting of security officers at Sinha’s residence can be analysed and matched with the visitors book Besides it is trivial to check the cellphone records of visitors in the book to see if they were in the vicinity at the times noted Questions about sources would not have been asked if India had a whistleblower law In the absence of a legal guarantee of safety and privacy the court should not ask for sources to be revealed especially when the cases at stake involve powerful people in politics and business It should rather follow convention and exhaust all other options before taking the extreme step Besides Sinha has not denied meeting persons involved in the 2G and coal allocation cases apparently in order to verify reports filed by his own agency In that case the central question is not the authenticity of the visitors book but the propriety of the CBI chief Should government officials meet in their private capacity persons whose fortunes they can influence in their official capacity

Sindhu-Marin and then it was Sindhu-Okuhara at the World Championship and also there were other good matches "I think each player has a different style of play and every match is different Well not one in particular but I think the World Championship final impacted me the most" The 22-year-old Indian has played all the 12 Super Series tournaments this season and she credited her training sessions which helped her to manage the workload "Training was going well and I had to be prepared for every match Every month we had tournaments and I am happy the way I have managed the workload It

play tournaments because each event will be important and also we have other important tournaments such as Commonwealth Games and Asian Games "It’s just that we have to be prepared I will have to sit

tournaments to play" she added Sindhu who finished runners-up at the Senior National Championship in Nagpur said it would be difficult to figure out a window for the domestic tournament next year "It

of the tournaments which I play and I will decide accordingly" she said BWF has decided to trial a new kind of service rule next year starting at the 2018 All England Open Championships and Sindhu said they would have to practice it during training before playing at the tournaments "I heard about the new service rule I think we all have to be really conscious about it it would be implemented from the All England and we have to really practice it before we play in the tournaments but I think it would be good for everybody" said Sindhu Chittagong: Ben Stokes took the last two Bangladesh wickets in three balls as England won a thrilling first Test by 22 runs in Chittagong on Monday depriving their hosts of an historic victory Ben Stokes impressed with both bat and ball as England defeated Bangladesh AFP Bangladesh needing 33 runs for what would have been their first win over England in nine attempts added just 10 runs to their overnight total and were all out for 263 after 20 minutes of play on the fifth and final day at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium Sabbir Rahman the overnight half-centurion was left stranded on 64 as the allrounder Stokes dismissed the other two batsmen in his second over Stokes had Taijul Islam lbw for 16 following a successful review after umpire Kumar Dharmasena initially turned down a muted appeal Two balls later it was the turn for Bangladesh to ask for a review as Dharamsena declared the number 11 batsman Shafiul Islam out lbw for a duck The replay again came to England’s aid as Hawk-Eye indicated that the ball was hitting off stump meaning the umpire’s initial decision stood England captain Alastair Cook who had flown back to Bangladesh only days after attending the birth of his daughter back home said that both sides had played their part in thrilling match ‘Held our nerve’ "It was a really good Test match to think we were here on day five with that wicket" Cook said after the game "It was such a tight game so credit to both sides I’m glad we held our nerve the quality we have in our attack we got it reversing" Despite coming agonisingly close to what would have been their most famous Test victory Bangladesh

I’m really proud" Rahim said "Our boys fought it out which is really impressive and hopefully we’ll do the same in the next match" The match was Bangladesh’s first Test in nearly in 15 months but showcased how the one-time whipping boys of international cricket have made steady progress in recent years The hosts played some impressive cricket during the match with the debutant Mehedi Hasan

lead They then had England reeling at 52 for five in the tourists’ second innings before Stokes and Jonny Bairstow turned the match with a partnership of 127 for the sixth wicket Stokes was named man

second over was not good and that was the instance when we gave the momentum to Mumbai I felt it was quite a tough wicket and if you did not give width but the second over was the one where we gave them the land slide which we were not able to control" said Dhoni at the presentation ceremony Dhoni rued his side’s inability to get off to a flying start while chasing the daunting total BCCI "The kind of momentum they built on from that point of the game we were not really able to come back into the game" said the keeper-batsman Bowling the inning’s second over pacer Mohit Sharma conceded 16

the team missed the servicesA of dashing Kiwi opener Brendon McCullum who had to leave the IPL for doing duties for the New Zealand national team "Losing McCullum just before the knock out stage was a big blow as he always gave us a good start at the top especially when the wicket is good In these types of wickets he is an ideal opener" he said Even as he praised his team for collective effort Dhoni claimed the players could not reach their optimal level of efficiency "It was more of a team effort coming to the final But I don’t think we reached hundred percent efficiency level because there are quite a few cricketers in our side who haven’t done as well as they should have "But as a team we have done really well We have contributed as a team when needed and individuals have taken the responsibility But what is important is at times when the stakes are high for the individuals to give match winning performances but that has not happened in this IPL" said Dhoni "The overall performance of Chennai was good but we need to go back to the drawing board and see which are the areas where we need to further improve so that we can win the IPL" added Dhoni IANS This mistake
