December 10, 2014 05:06 PM
The Law Commission of India has recommended that attempt to suicide must be decriminalised, the home ministry told the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. "The Law Commission of India, in its 210th Report, had recommended that Section 309 (attempt to commit suicide) of IPC needs to be effaced from the statute book," Minister of State for Home Affairs Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary said in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha. As many as "18 states and four Union Territory Administrations have supported that Section 309 of IPC may be deleted", the minister said.

December 04, 2014 04:59 PM
Hundreds of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) members on Thursday staged a sit-in protest in Patna over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's failure to bring back black money stashed abroad. "It is a beginning of the RJD's move to expose failure of Modi to bring back black money and his government's discrimination against poor and backward state like Bihar," RJD state president Ram Chandra Purve told the media.

Speculation is rife in Bihar's political circles over the possible ouster of Jitan Ram Manjhi as the chief minister after he said his days in the office are numbered.The speculation gained strength a day after Manjhi said his days in office were numbered as his detractors in the party were making every effort to remove him from the chief minister's post.Manjhi said: "I know efforts are on to remove me, I may or may not continue till November end."Hours after Manjhi's comment on Sunday, former chief minister Nitish Kumar and Janata Dal-United (JD-U) president Sharad Yadav discussed for nearly two hours about political heat generated by Manjhi's controversial remarks in the past few days.Nitish Kumar, however, refused to comment Monday on Manjhi's likely removal. "I will speak about it only after my ongoing 'Sampark Yatra' concludes Nov 29," Nitish Kumar told the media here.According to JD-U leaders close to Yadav, some Bihar ministers, considered loyal to Nitish Kumar, have complained to him about Manjhi's controversial remarks and demanded his ouster.
