Lucknow: The police says that the three sons of a leader of the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh have demolished a house that was being built by a doctor in eastern part of the state.
On Saturday, the young men, whose father Ram Lal Akela is a state legislator, reportedly pulled out guns at the construction site in a village in Rae Bareli. They were allegedly accompanied by an armed group of 30 supporters who destroyed the construction. A local police inspector was allegedly part of the mob.
One of the sons of the MLA, Vikrant Akela, claims that he owns the plot of land on which the house is being built. He is also the district president of the youth wing of the Samajwadi Party.
Dr Naseer Hussain says the local police refused to register a police case so he then contacted senior officers at the district level. He says that the politicians's sons had asked him to pay Rs. 20 lakh and when he refused, they decided to demolish the house he is building.
VADODARA: At least eleven persons were killed, several injured and forty feared to be trapped in the debris of two buildings collapsed in Madhavnagar area of Vadodara on Wednesday.
Two multi-storey buildings, constructed under a housing scheme for economically weaker sections, collapsed in the early hours in Atladara on Wednesday. The housing was planned by theVadodara Urban Development Authority(VUDA).
"Eleven persons died and three sustained injuries in the incident. We are focusing on rescue operations as the priority is to save as many lives as possible," said Vadodara BJP MP, Balkrishna Shukla.
The residents blamed inferior quality of the construction for the incident and said that the other buildings in the colony, constructed in 2001, were also in a bad condition. "We have been making representations to the VUDA for quite some time now, but to no avail," said Suresh Valand, a resident. Most of the residents are either engaged in labour work or middle-level jobs. "We had approached VUDA and informed them about cracks in the building walls and ceilings. But, no one responded and instead we were driven out of VUDA office," said Manish Jadhav, resident of block 15.
The incident took place at around 4:30 am in Madhavnagar. The settlement has around 450 houses in 33 blocks. According to the residents of the colony, one of the two collapsed buildings had 14 apartments of which 11 were occupied. The residents of the adjacent block vacated it as it was in a precarious condition after the collapse of the first one. The second block collapsed subsequently.
A brand new poster of Charmi's upcoming movie 'Prema Oka Maikam' where our busty siren is donning the role of a prostitute for the first time in her career, is giving lot of kick with both its information and glamour. From senior actresses like Savitri, Lakshmi, Sridevi, Jayaprada and Jayasudha to Tabu, Kareena Kapoor and Anushka, the poster gives a list of all seductresses who scorched Telugu screen as those call-girls. (Off course, Tabu and Kareena are an exception).
Coming to the glamour part, more than the hot looks of that shapely waist visible through the side slit of Charmi's dress, there is another interesting element. The wine glass in the hand of our seductress and that wine bottle in other hand are giving lots of kick to youths without even having it.

The Lok Sabha on Monday night passed the ambitious National Food Security Bill, 2013 that seeks to provide highly subsidised food grains to nearly 70 per cent of the population of the country.Dubbed as a “game-changer,” the flagship measure of the UPA government will legally entitle 67 per cent of the population (including 75 per cent rural and 50 per cent urban) to get subsidised grains under the Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS). A beneficiary will be entitled to 5 kg of rice, wheat or coarse cereals at Rs. 3, Rs. 2 and Re. 1 per kg a month, respectively. The beneficiaries will be identified by the States based on parameters prescribed by the Union government.On a day when the historic legislation was being voted, Congress president Sonia Gandhi — who was the force behind the Bill and dubbed it an “empowerment revolution” — could not see the passage of the Bill as she took ill in the House late in the evening. She was rushed to the AIIMS after complaining of high fever. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Leader of the House Sushil Kumar Shinde sat through the proceedings in the House.The government had promulgated an Ordinance to this effect in July which had to be replaced by the Bill in the current monsoon session of Parliament to make it a law.
The Syrian revolution has turned into a civil war, with over 40,000 people dead, adding to the instability of the Middle East. The conflict continues to keep the Arab, European and American foreign ministers and diplomats awake at night. This seems to be hopefully coming to an end, if one connects the dots and sees what the EU foreign ministers, the Russians and last but not least the American establishment are doing. The potential use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime may be the tipping point and if that is the case, then Assad’s days may actually be numbered. This time around, American involvement may speed things up and help deliver justice to the Syrian people. Here are five reasons why I believe the U.S administration will take the lead and help topple the Assad regime
Hyderabad/Guntur: Security was enhanced around the Chanchalguda Central Prison in Hyderabad on Sunday where jailed YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has announced to go on an indefinite fast after police on Saturday broke the fast-unto-death of his mother Y.S.

I decided to post something about aishwarya and priyanka : two actresses whom some of us love to hate. Contrary to that they both have got billions of fans.. i thought it would be kinda cool to compare these stars coz they have a lot in common : the Miss World Crown, The AB (Small B ) factor, the Ashutosh G factor and there have also been rumours going around that PC copies Aishwarya's style (even though Ashji bhi kahi na kahi se motivate hoti hai - HINT - her name starts with A and her partner's name is BRAD :-)
At last year's IIFA Ashutosh Gowarikar degraded priyanka because of aishwarya and i think that was really unfair coz PC did a fantabulous job in Fashion compared aishwarya ( even though aishwarya also performed well but PC ke role was Totally woman-oriented which is rare in Bollywood)Dusky-maid comments are common in Priyanka's Posts...even though she is one of the most beautiful actresses in bollywood..so i guys what do you think ?? who is better in terms of looks and most importantly ACTING?????? leave your opinions and try not to be racist or turn this into a skin colour discrimination.

The police say the villagers were patrolling the area for Maoists, when they saw the activist's car and stopped it. The villagers had long suspected that Maoists were behind a string of robbery, loot and murder incidents in the area.
