CPIM protest against water problem in Jappinamogaru

Mangaluru: Members of CPIM staged a protest in front of Mangaluru City Corporation on Monday August 17 against water problem in Jappinamogaru.

The protesters said that places like Tandolige, Guddepadpu and in other regions of 54th Jappinamogaru ward people are facing water crisis. Though the problem is prevailing since many days the authorities have not taken any measures to solve the problem, they said.

An over head tank was built by Jappinamogaru Yuvaka Mandala 21 years ago. The water was supplied from a nearby borewell to it. But the authority has not maintained properly and created artificial scarcity of water, they said.

Osama's son Hamza asks jihadists to attack US, allies

Washington: Osama bin Laden's son Hamza, known as the 'Crown Prince of Terror', has asked al-Qaeda supporters to carry out lone wolf attacks in the US and in countries that are its allies.

The slain al-Qaeda chief's son, in his mid 20s, told Al Qaeda supporters to carry out lone wolf attacks in Washington, DC, Paris and Tel-Aviv in a video message.

"This is your duty," Hamza bin Laden said as he called to move the jihadist war from the Middle East to allies of the US and Jewish Americans, according to SITE Intelligence Group.

Al-Qaeda hopes to renew its popularity by "reviving the brand" of Bin Laden, SITE's Executive Director Rita Katz said.

The extremist group's "leadership wants Hamza as a future leader: someone loved & inspirational, without a negative reputation or participation in infighting," she tweeted.
Photos released shortly after 9/11 show Hamza reading poems to adult militants.

He escaped the US Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama in his Pakistan compound in 2011.
The baby-faced terrorist likely made the video before June because he pledges to the Taliban's now-deceased leader Mullah Omar, the New York Daily News reported.

Interestingly, Hamza bin Laden makes no mention of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is attracting Islamist extremists from around the world and has created a 'caliphate' in Syria and Iraq.

"Though Hamza bin Laden mentioned Jihadi fronts and leaders from around the world, no mention of ISIS and its leaders," Katz said.

Last week, al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri had pledged allegiance to the new head of the Taliban -- Mullah Akhtar Mansour -- in an audio recording that surfaced Thursday.
Hamza bin Laden's aunt, uncle and his step-grandmother were killed in a plane crash in England earlier this month. The bin Ladens in Saudi Arabia disowned Osama more than 20 years ago.

The young bin Laden had also appeared on a sick extremist website to mark the third anniversary of the July 7, 2005, London bombings, in which 52 people died.

Hamza read a poem in which he called for the destruction of America, Britain, France and Denmark -- and terror chiefs fear he was being groomed as an al-Qaeda boss.

BJP sweeps Madhya Pradesh civic body polls

Bhopal: Vyapam scam controversy today failed to dent BJP's popularity in Madhya Pradesh where the state's ruling party clinched eight out of 10 civic bodies, prompting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to thank the voters.

"MP Civic poll results are gladdening. I thank people of MP for reposing their trust in BJP. I salute efforts of karyakartas (workers) and party leaders," Modi tweeted.

"Thank you very much for your continued support and faith. MP will continue to work under your dynamic leadership," Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who has been facing demands for his resignation over the scandal, tweeted.

The elections were held on August 12.

"State is moving rapidly on the path of development. It has no place for negative politics. The sooner opposition realises it, the better," Chouhan said in another tweet.

BJP registered victories in Morena, Ujjain, Harda, Chakghat in Rewa district, Bhainsdehi in Betul district, Kotar in Satna, Suwasara in Mandsaur and Vidisha municipal bodies.

A Congress and an Independent candidate were elected as President of municipalities in Sarangpur in Rajgarh district and Guhwara in Chhattarpur district respectively.

BJP had swept the civic polls in the state held earlier this year. Elections in the aforementioned 10 municipal bodies could not be held then due to various reasons.
