the provisions of the model code And by doing so they seek to avoid violating its provisions "This has. far reaching implications as it would certainly influence the minds of electors of the assembly

murder of Michael Jordan’s father are asking for a new trial saying someone tampered with the dead man’s shirt after his autopsy The autopsy found no hole in James Jordan’s shirt that corresponded with the bullet wound in his upper right chest area but an agent with the State Bureau of Investigation later contradicted that on the witness stand according to the lawyers’ filing in North Carolina’s Robeson County Superior Court “This newly discovered evidence of tampering adds to the growing list of legal concerns and factual evidence which add weight to the conclusion that not only does Daniel Green deserve a new trial but that he is innocent of the murder of James Jordan” said Chris Mumma executive director of the North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence which recently joined Green’s defense The state attorney general’s office is reviewing Wednesday’s filing a spokeswoman said Thursday The basketball great’s father was killed on July 23 1993 in North Carolina His body was found in a South Carolina swamp Green and Larry Demery were convicted after Demery testified at their trial in 1996 that Green shot Jordan as he slept in his luxury car in Robeson County Green has long claimed his innocence telling WRAL-TV in 1998 that he was wrongly convicted of pulling the trigger Attorneys have filed previous motions over the years for a new trial Green admitted in the interview that he drove James Jordan’s Lexus and wore his watch as well as an NBA championship ring he was given by his son He also admitted he helped dump Jordan’s body in the South Carolina swamp Michael Jordan now the owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets is one of the greatest professional basketball players of all time He led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships and in 1982 his game-winning shot led the North Carolina Tar Heels to the NCAA championship over Georgetown He and his father were close evidenced in the photo of the two hugging after the Bulls won the 1992 championship In Green’s 1998 interview he said he wrote a letter to Jordan’s family to explain his version of what happened and apologize This week’s court filing says the absence of a hole in the right chest area contradicts the prosecutors’ theory that Jordan was lying in his car when he was shot “It also gave strength to the defense theory that there was an altercation between Demery and Mr Jordan which was kept from the jury” the court filing says The filing describes an unusual chain of custody for the shirt It says Dr Joel Sexton of Newberry South Carolina who performed the autopsy gave it to a law enforcement officer who gave it to a civilian employee of a company that provided services for funeral homes That employee gave the shirt to his boss who said he buried it in his backyard because of the smell When law enforcement later determined that the shirt was evidence the SBI worked with South Carolina law enforcement officials to exhume the shirt and transport it to Raleigh And it was then that an SBI agent reported the presence of a bullet hole in the upper right chest area of the shirt the filing says Sexton had written in the autopsy report that he looked for and didn’t find a corresponding hole in the right chest area of the shirt that corresponded with James Jordan’s fatal wound Instead he found three holes near the shirt tail he wrote Those holes would line up with the fatal wound if the shirt were pulled up about one foot he wrote _ “as one might do if pulling a gun from their waist” the court filing adds SBI Agent RN Mars testified that the hole he found in the shirt “marked the location where the single fatal bullet transversed the victim’s clothing and entered his body” the filing says “But Agent Mars offered no explanation for the three holes in the lower section of Mr Jordan’s shirt that Dr Sexton’s autopsy suggested were caused by the bullet The district attorney who had once highlighted Dr Sexton’s notes about the absence of a bullet hole in the chest area of the shirt did not ask about the three holes in the lower section of the shirt and _ critically for Mr Green _ neither did his defense attorneys” For all the latest

"accompanying" Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on Fridayafter the sect head’s conviction The Opposition stepped up its attack with former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda demanding the dismissal of Manohar Lal Khattar government for its failure to handle the situation at Panchkula Hooda sought the imposition of President’s Rule in the state The Khattar government came

buildings on Friday In Panchkula security forces remained on high alert on Saturdayas an uneasy calm prevailed in the district which was the epicentre of Friday’s violence It would seem that all that is needed for the sinking Titanic to stay afloat and even turn around and charge forward all hooters blazing is for a woman to wear elegant cotton sarees just like the way her grandmother did Sounds confusing It isn’t The Congress may be undergoing the worst crisis in its 129-year-old history the Indians may have shown it the door almost everywhere it may have sunk to a historic low of just 45 MPs in Lok Sabha all that it needs to do to become an unstoppable force once again is to persuade Priyanka Gandhi to join politics Once she does the stars will align themselves; the earth which was haltingly revolving around the sun these days will speed up its proceedings and even global warming will be reversed (well maybe not quite but you get the drift) Uttar Pradesh where she will start her journey by aggressive campaigning will be in the bag in 2017 and in 2019 the Congress with an eerily Indira Gandhi-like figure at the helm shall charge full steam ahead and throw the despotic Narendra Modi out of power I told you it’s really that simple That at least is the plan News18 quoting top party functionaries reported on Friday that Priyanka will in all probability take a direct plunge into electoral politics in the 2019 general elections from Amethi and as a first step aggressively campaign across Uttar Pradesh in next year’s Assembly elections Priyanka Gandhi AFP It is not known whether campaign manager Prashant Kishor suggested it but apparently Priyanka could contest from Amethi in which case Rahul will leave the Lok Sabha seat for his sister and shift to Rae Bareli These shifts do not require much explaining to the electorate since Amethi and Rae Bareli are family fiefdoms and the poor voters will only be too obliged to embrace Priyanka with open arms Rahul’s sibling is the proverbial ‘Brahmastra’ that Congress has been forced to unleash to shower blessings on a parched India and initiate doomsday mayhem against political rivals (read Narendra Modi) Not only is Priyanka fiery feisty fierce intense and scorchingly brilliant her resemblance to Indira Gandhi her late grandmother especially when slips into those elegant cotton sarees is a big perception asset If her brilliance doesn’t bring victory the sarees will Reports of late had been suggesting that Prashant Kishor had been pushing for Priyanka to head Congress campaign in UP and if indeed she listens to her inner voice this will be a game-changer in Indian politics The Congress rank and file will be energised senior leaders will bless her with misty eyes many in the media (of the ‘secular-liberal’ variety) academics and civil society will finally get someone to rally behind someone who can lead Congress that big tent of all ideas out of the morass and spell the end of BJP’s majoritarian rule Critics will point out as they have this nasty habit of doing that merely draping a cotton saree doesn’t automatically make her a leader as her grandmother was Some will point out that Indira Gandhi had cut her teeth in politics at quite an young age Having been father Jawaharlal Nehru’s virtual chief of staff for 17 years she was also a Congress Working Committee member party president by 1959 Rajya Sabha MP and Union information and broadcasting minister before she became the prime minister In contrast Priyanka had been limiting herself to cameos in her brother and mother’s constituencies every five years Even if she takes the plunge at 44 after having almost zero experience in public life that won’t be a problem because she belongs to the country’s premier dynasty and it will be the nation’s sacred duty to elect the airdropped leader as and when she presents herself Besides say party insiders her sartorial acumen will make up for the lack of field practice There is but one little problem in this apparently foolproof plan and it goes by the name of Robert Vadra Priyanka’s husband who flaunts a six-pack gym-built body and allegedly dubious land deals This is where the similarity between Indira and Priyanka ends Indira’s husband Feroze Gandhi was among those rare individuals who didn’t think twice before crossing the path of even his illustrious father-in-law law when it came to raising his voice against corruption In 1957 when Congress was in office led by then Prime Minister Nehru Feroze who represented the Rae Bareli seat in Lok Sabha blew the whistle and initiated a debate in the Parliament on LIC’s public money being invested in a Calcutta-based Marwari businessman Haridas Mundhra’s dubious firms Feroze Indira’s husband who had role in government’s taking over the Life Insurance Corporation of India began his speech thus in the Lok Sabha on the ‘Mundhra scandal’ on 1 16 December 1957: "Parliament must exercise vigilance and control over the biggest and most powerful financial institution it has created the Life Insurance Corporation of India whose misapplication of public funds we shall scrutinise today" Forced to act Nehru set up a one-man commission headed by Justice MC Chagla who concluded that Mundhra had sold fictitious shares to LIC thereby defrauding the insurance behemoth to the tune of Rs 125 crore (not a paltry sum those days) The businessman was sentenced to 22 years in prison The scam also forced the resignation of the then Union Finance Minister TT Krishnamachari So when Indira Gandhi took public office she had the ability to flaunt the unimpeachable morality of her husband and that lent her campaigning and subsequent role in public office a stamp of incorruptibility For Priyanka though husband Vadra is a millstone around the neck His name has been linked to dubious land deals alleged benami property deals in London and he cannot open his mouth without creating a controversy At best he will be a liability and expect the opposition to tear Priyanka apart on Vadra if and when she decides to take the plunge Also we have moved a few decades forward The Congress’ national footprint stands at a measly 7 percent of the population a far cry from Indira days Almost two-thirds of India are ruled by regional forces and the country has a predominantly young population who do not get misty-eyed at the mention of The Family There is a multiplicity of media and social and digital media are now challenging the hegemony of mainstream medium But these are conjectures Perhaps Priyanka can just step in and in a whirlwind of mind-bending brilliance sweep the electorate off her feet The country waits in bated breath It depicts a chaotic White House, Dadiba Pundole has planned an exhibition that will bring the story of the Pundole family?
