With child labour rates highest among tribal and lower caste communities at almost 7 percent and 4 percent respectively, UNICEF said, the changes could have an adverse impact on these especially marginalised and impoverished communities.

Khandu’s liking for Modi has nothing to do with the fact that he rebelled against the party to which he belongs, the Congress - he has since returned to the fold, taking charge of the state after former Arunachal Pradesh CM, and party colleague Nabam Tuki resigned from his position. Khandu, after winning the confidence vote in Itanagar, came to Delhi on 24 July (Sunday) and sought appointments with top leaders of his party – president Sonia Gandhi, and vice-president Rahul Gandhi – and the Prime Minister, in that order.

  • Like Jallikattu, child marriage also an 'age-old tradition', but is banned now: SC

    Even child marriage was an age-old tradition, observes SC. The NDA government invoked tales from the Mahabharata to urge the Supreme Court to lift its ban on the “ancient sport” of jallikattu, arguing that the bull-taming sport, banned since 2014 by the apex court for cruelty, is good for maintaining bio-diversity. The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEF) justified its January 7, 2016 notification issued to circumvent the apex court ban by allowing the exhibition and use of bulls for jallikattu and bullock-cart races, saying that jallikattu “encourages breeding of indigenous bulls.” The apex court is hearing a batch of petitions filed by various NGOs like Compassion Unlimited

A senior NIA official told Mirror, "The incriminating photos, contents of the chat and messages shared on his WhatsApp account establish that Sirajuddin actively supported, invited support from others for ISIS." The agency's toothcombing his mobile phone and computer data has yielded this conclusion alongside evidences of him actively propagating ISIS agenda, disseminating incriminating contents that endorse, justify and glorify the terror acts of Daesh.
