A one-member committee of ex-district judge Shyam Darne formed by the State government to probe allegations of inadequate compensation to a farmer from Dhule, Dharma Patil who committed suicide outside Mantralaya in January 2018, has found irregularities on the part of the then local land acquisition official, local tehsil officer and local mediator. Patil, 84, was seeking compensation equal to that of his neighbour after their lands were acquired for the power project in Vikharan village of Dhule district. Pune-based lawyer Asim Sarode, along with others, had approached the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) over the Patil’s death. The Darne committee report submitted to the SHRC has recommended filing of FIR against the then land acquisition officer Pratibha Sapkale, the then tehsildar Rohidas Khairnar and mediator Dattatreya Desale for ‘fabrication of false documents and cheating the government land acquiring body’. It has also recommended disciplinary proceedings against the government officials.Pointing out delays and irregularities from the level of land acquisition officer to the Collector’s office, the report said, “He was feeling aggrieved only because he got less compensation, Rs four lakh, whereas the adjoining land owners got huge compensation little less than 2 crore.” It said that cases need to be filed against the above mentioned individuals, “so that police can find out after investigation in how many cases such huge amount was granted by the land acquisition officers and Desale as an agent earned huge amount cheating the government”. The report however termed the suicide of Dharma Patil as a “mystery”, since he was neither mentally disturbed nor was there any reason for him to come prepared to Mantralaya with poison. “Dharma Patil had constantly raised objections regarding less compensation granted to him and he also had filed complaints with the Dhule district collectorate, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, and Power and Tourism ministry. But unfortunately nobody gave him proper response. It made him nervous and mentally stressed. All these circumstances compelled Dharma Patil to end his life by consuming poison in Mantralaya premises,” said Mr. Sarode. “His family members were detained by the police when CM was to visit Dhule on his Mahajanadesh Yatra. This is another violation of human rights,” he said, adding that despite directions from the SHRC, the Power ministry has not even bothered to submit its reply. The next hearing of the case is on November 5.

Thad Matta stands on the sidelines during a game against Minnesota. OSU won, 64-46.Credit: Ritika Shah / Asst. photo editorWhen a college basketball game is closing on the the final minutes of play, most coaches would say each possession becomes increasingly more important.The value of making the correct read, protecting the ball, making free throws and getting good shots goes up in such a way that if a team fails to do those things, they are likely to end up on the wrong side of the scoreboard when the buzzer sounds.Ohio State coach Thad Matta said Saturday doing the little things — like converting free throws, keeping proper spacing on offense and defending to his team’s capability — is what ultimately led to its 65-63 loss Thursday night against Penn State.Even junior guard Shannon Scott knew something was off that night in State College, Pa., mentioning that at times when the Buckeyes (22-7, 9-7, fourth in the Big Ten) were trying to decipher the Nittany Lions’ zone defense, not everyone was on the same page.“We’re not seeing it all the way the whole time. There’s been possessions where three players are running one play, and two players are running a different play,” Scott said Saturday. “We’ve gotta have a better focus on our offense, especially against the zone.”When Matta was told that Scott said the team sometimes has trouble getting into the right sets offensively — even though the team is 29 games into the season — he said it shows how OSU’s mind wasn’t in the right place against Penn State.“That just tells you the concentration wasn’t there. And a lot of that is on Shannon and (senior guard) Aaron (Craft). We were going way too quick the other night,” Matta said. “We had a guy stop and tie his shoe twice during the game, and we didn’t start our offense until there was 22 seconds on the clock. We had wasted possessions on those two possessions.”The No. 22 Buckeyes are likely going to need to have those little things corrected when they are set to travel to Bloomington, Ind., to take on Indiana (16-12, 6-9, eighth in the Big Ten). The Hoosiers won the Big Ten regular season title last year, beating the Buckeyes by a game in the standings.OSU’s second loss this season to Penn State this year was not exactly what the Buckeyes had planned, Scott said, but there’s no time to worry about that with a quick turnaround to take on Indiana.“It cuts us deep, losing another game. But we can’t really dwell on it. It’s too late in the season to start dwelling on our mistakes,” Scott said. “It’s not time for that right now. We gotta all be men and move on from that and make the most of our next games.”Despite falling to Penn State Thursday, OSU would still be the fourth seed in the Big Ten Tournament — and get a first-round bye — if the season ended today, because Iowa also lost Thursday, on the road at Indiana.The Hoosiers are led by sophomore guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, who is currently fourth in the Big Ten in scoring, averaging 17.6 points per game.“Ferrell is obviously one of the top point guards in the country and (freshman forward Noah) Vonleh is a monster,” Matta said of the Hoosiers two leading scorers. “Just a well-coached basketball team, very good basketball team and it’s another Big Ten war for us.”Despite their record, Indiana isn’t going to be an easy opponent, Scott said.“We know none of our games are going to get easier. Indiana’s a great team,” Scott said. “Their record doesn’t show how good they really are, so we all know that coming into the game. We’re going to be prepared for them and hopefully be ready to play.”The loss to Penn State came on the heels of six wins in seven games for OSU, but Matta said he’s not concerned about his team’s confidence level.“It’s funny because with this quick turnaround, I’m not even worried about confidence,” Matta said. “Our focus is quite honestly, ‘Hey that’s behind us. We can’t change that. Here’s what we gotta do to try to win the basketball game’ … In terms of being 25 games or whatever we are into the season, come on — you gotta man up. You gotta carry your weight around here and get the job done.”Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. Sunday at Assembly Hall.
The Portuguese captain, Cristiano Ronaldo will be given a break after his long and tiring season with his club so that he would be totally fit in his return before World Cup kick off.Seleccao is scheduled to have the warm-up game against Belgium in Brussels on Saturday night. Yet, instead of joining his teammate, Ronaldo is in tennis court with his fellow, Miguel Paixao to keep fit during his short break.According to Mirror, Portugal’s head coach, Fernando Santos said that he deserved his rest after playing in 49 games in one season. He also said, “Cristiano Ronaldo is on holiday,”Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“I won’t bother Cristiano by calling him, after a spell where he’s put in so much effort and is tired. I don’t have to talk with Cristiano. Hopefully he can have a great holiday and he can come back in good condition. That’s the important thing.”Portugal will begin their World Cup campaign against Spain on 15th June.

It has to be LEED certified and have charging stations for electric cars.”It’s going to be a while. Public comment will happen for 45-days. The one and only store could take more than six months to open.“We’ve had bigger issues to worry about here in Imperial Beach,” the Mayor said. “I’m working to make Imperial Beach the best little beach town on the planet.” Imperial Beach takes steps toward recreational pot shops Updated: 10:46 PM Dan Plante February 22, 2018 Dan Plante,

Michael Gilday to become the next Chief of Naval Operations, Defense News reported Thursday.If confirmed by the Senate, Gilday, currently the Director of the Joint Staff, would be promoted over several four-star colleagues who will remain in their current roles. Gilday and other senior Navy leaders met with President Donald Trump on Wednesday where they received his approval to move forward his promotion and nomination, according to the report.Gilday’s appointment to CNO would replace the Navy’s current top military official, Adm. John Richardson.Richardson was originally scheduled to be replaced Aug. 1 by Adm. Bill Moran.Last week Moran abruptly declined the appointment and requested retirement after Spencer raised new questions about Moran exercising poor judgment involving a past professional relationship.Navy photo by Petty Officer 2nd Class Robert Hartland ADC AUTHOR
