  • Lt Gen Singh, whose area of operations covered Jammu and Kashmir region including Ladakh and Aksai Chin over which China has claims, concluded his visit with a meeting at Xinjiang's provincial capital Urumqi with Lt Gen Liu Wanlong, Commander of China's Xinjiang Military Command which oversees China's borders along PoK.

    The year saw them dealing with several other cases involving big names like Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi; ex-BBP MLA Barjesh Thakur; former Union minister MJ Akbar; Ratul Puri, nephew of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath; and former promoters of Fortis Healthcare Malvinder and Shivinder Singh.

    The govt had tasked NSA Ajit Doval to head the committee for the setting up of a new position that was announced by PM Narendra Modi at his Independence Day address. While joint operations and tri-services commands are likely to be overseen by the CDS, the top officer is set to be heavily involved in procurement of military equipment as well.

    Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has said that rebel NCP leader has resigned from the Maharashtra government and is back with the Sena-NCP-Congress alliance. In dramatic twist to political events in Maharashtra, the BJP's Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari as the next Chief Minister early on Saturday morning, Ajit Pawar as his deputy.

    Ajit Pawar was removed as the NCP's legislature unit leader on Saturday, hours after he joined hands with the BJP in a coup and took oath as deputy of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. However, former Mumbai BJP chief said the change in leadership of the NCP legislature party will need to be verified by the governor.

    The 60-year-old legislator, who created a flutter in state politics by rebelling against the NCP and joining hands with the BJP, spent Saturday at his brother's home in Mumbai even as his uncle and NCP chief Sharad Pawar attended a meeting where most of the party MLAs were present.

    The opposition party also alleged that the BJP has brought a "black name" for democracy, while the Supreme Court on Constitution Day has given a gift to the nation by passing the order.

    The ACB had earlier submitted an affidavit in the same bench, in which it ruled out Pawar's involvement in cases of alleged irregularities in approval and commissioning of irrigation projects in the Vidarbha region. The affidavit was submitted on November 27, a day before the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government of the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance was sworn in the state.

    Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar told the top court that "the quarrel in the family will be resolved soon". A bench of Justices N V Ramana, Ashok Bhushan and Sanjiv Khanna was told by a senior advocate, representing Ajit Pawar, that the letter of support given to Governor for govt formation along with the BJP is "factually and legally correct".

    An editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' targeted Maharashtra's Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, saying his rebellion has failed and it will be proved in the next few days. Devendra Fadnavis took oath as chief minister like a "thief on the run", it said in sarcastic remarks.

    Since 2014, the State agency has been probing several irregularities in the awarding of the contracts in the various irrigation projects when Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare held the irrigation and water resources portfolio. In all 19 cases have been registered & 5 chargesheets including 2 in Gosikhurd and 1 each in Balganga & Kondhane dam project have been filed by the agency.
