It has been recognised by the scientific community throughout the world that, Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution of man is scientifically correct. However, the Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Satyapal Singh has stirred a controversy by claiming that the theory of evolution of man was scientifically wrong and that, it should be removed from the school and college books. The minister has also claimed that the books written by our fore fathers did not say that, they saw an ape turning into a man. The Indian National Science Academy, The National Academy of Sciences and The Indian Academy of Science have criticised the statement made by the Minister. Scientists and students from institutions across the country have strongly condemned the statement of the Minister. The statement of the Minister is seen as a part of the larger agenda of the RSS, to change the text books, to suite it’s communal agenda.

वित्तीय वर्ष 2018-19 में जिओ का संभावित घाटा रु 15,000 करोड़ रहेगा- US की रिसर्च फर्म बर्नस्टीन का कथन...
इकोनॉमिक टाइम्स में प्रकाशित रिपोर्ट के अनुसार, US की रिसर्च और ब्रोकरेज फर्म बर्नस्टीन ने कहा है कि वित्तीय वर्ष 2018-19 में जिओ का संभावित घाटा रु 15,000 करोड़ रहेगा। जिओ का घाटा वोडाफोन आईडिया और एयरटेल के घाटे से कहीं अधिक भयावह होगा। बर्नस्टीन ने यह भी कहा है कि अपने एकाउंट्स में मुनाफा दिखाने के लिए जिओ एकाउंट्स "मैनेज" कर रहा है। उदाहरण के लिए, जिओ ने रु 7,500 करोड़ अपने ग्राहकों को हैंडसेट सब्सिडी के रूप में व्यय होना दर्शाया है। यदि यह खर्च जिओ के प्रॉफिट एंड लॉस एकाउंट में दर्शाया जाता तो 2018-19 में अक्टूबर से दिसंबर की तिमाही के दौरान ही जिओ का घाटा रु 3,800 करोड़ हो जाता। लेकिन इस खर्च को रिलायंस रिटेल के एकाउंट में दर्शाया गया। इसके परिणाम स्वरूप, 2018-19 की अक्टूबर से दिसंबर की तिमाही में जिओ का रु 831 करोड़ का शुद्ध लाभ दर्शाया गया। इकोनॉमिक टाइम्स की रिपोर्ट कहती है कि बर्नस्टीन की रिपोर्ट पर रिलायंस जिओ ने उनके सवाल पर कोई प्रतिक्रिया व्यक्त नही की है। इकोनॉमिक टाइम्स ने मार्केट के विश्लेषकों का उल्लेख करते हुए यह भी कहा है कि रिलायंस जिओ का मार्केट शेयर 30% तक पहुंचते ही वह टैरिफ बढ़ाना शुरू कर देगा।

The AUAB has been demanding immediate payment of salary to the employees. Initially, it was assured by the Management that the salary for the month of October would be paid on 28.11.2019. However, the Management did not keep up it’s words. Meanwhile, again the AUAB gave call for lunch hour demonstrations to be organised today. All of a sudden, we received news late yesterday evening that, the salary for October, 2019 would be paid today the 04.12.2019. It is important to note that the window for giving VRS option got closed yesterday the 03.12.2019. This shows that the Management wanted to disburse October salary only after the window for VRS is closed. This is nothing but to exert undue pressure on the employees, till the last minute, to compel them to go on VRS. The Management may tell many cock and bull stories to justify it's action. But, it stands fully exposed and it’s game plan is understood by the entire employees. Needless to state is that, the Management is adopting unfair labour practice.
