The Opposition parties in Tripura accused the BJP of “unleashing terror across the State” to prevent them from contesting the upcoming three-tier panchayat polls.“The ruling BJP has virtually reduced the elections to a farce,” said a statement released by the CPI(M)-led Left Front. Its convener Bijan Dhar said the Left parties together could submit only 600 nominations for a total of 6,646 seats, including zila parishad, panchayat samiti and gram panchayats. The rural elections in Tripura are slated for July 27.The Congress demanded an all-party meeting to discuss the situation. PCC chief Pradyot Kishore Debbarman said that he did not believe free and peaceful election was possible as the “entire process was being rigged by the BJP in connivance with government machinery”.Denying the allegations levelled by the CPI(M) and the Congress, the BJP alleged attacks and intimidation by the Opposition parties. State BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharjee lashed out at Mr. Dhar for claiming that the ruling party supporters had set fire to a mosque during a clash in Dharmanagar subdivision. “We are going to file a defamation suit [against Mr. Dhar] for the false and fabricated charge,” said Mr. Bhattacharjee. Mr. Dhar, meanwhile, retracted the statement claiming that he had reacted on the basis of “wrong information” received from a source.Monday, the last day of filing nominations for the panchayat elections, saw widespread violence across several subdivisions. Dozens of vehicles and motorbikes were damaged during clashes between workers of rival parties. Additional forces were deployed in Dharmanagar, Sonamura and Sabroom subdivisions to maintain law and order.

TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea boss Lampard discusses Pulisic loan exit talkby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard is adamant Christian Pulisic will not be allowed to leave on loan in January.The summer arrival has played just ten minutes in the last four Premier League matches. “No,” was Lampard’s reply when asked if Pulisic could be loaned out. “With Christian he’s come to us in a big move, let’s make no mistake about it, and then he’s just turned 21 recently, and we’ve got a competitive squad here. “I said it before the last game, I always have a problem who to pick and people make my decisions in training or how they’re playing, and at the minute with winning four on the bounce I need the edge of staying in the team and keep performing and everyone is the same. “With Christian coming here, we have to protect him for that fact because he’s young. Christian, as with every player in the squad, needs to work hard in training, keep improving in training, see the direction we’re going, be a part of it, and show what you can do on a match day, and all the players are the same there.”

OTTAWA, O.N. – The Supreme Court of Canada will not hear a union’s appeal of a key ruling about random drug testing at Suncor Energy’s oilsands operations in northeast Alberta.Suncor began testing staff in safety-sensitive jobs six years ago, prompting Unifor – which represents some 3,000 workers at the site – to file a grievance claiming the tests infringe privacy.An arbitration tribunal allowed the union’s grievance, concluding the testing policy was an unreasonable exercise of management rights. However, an Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench ruling quashed that decision, sending the matter to a fresh arbitration panel.Unifor appealed, but the Alberta Court of Appeal dismissed the union’s challenge, and Unifor took its case to the Supreme Court.As usual, the high court gave no reason for refusing to hear the case.
