10may05/ From 3 flights to 56, Amritsar airport is ready for take-off / 1994: Mandela becomes SA's first black president

From 3 flights to 56, Amritsar airport is ready for take-off
Coming up at Rajasansi: new airport terminal, international flights, Rs
79-crore makeover
DHARMENDRA RATAUL

AMRITSAR, MAY 9: Just a few years ago, it was a one-plane stop. But now,
Rajasansi Airport is fast becoming a buzzing hub of international action-and
getting a new look, too.
Singapore Airline, which landed here four months ago, has been going
full-three days a week. And with a new terminal likely to open in October,
British Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Phuket Airlines, Tajikistan Airlines,
Uzbek Airways and Air-India are also lining up a landing here, say
officials.

With Air-India starting its Amritsar-Birmingham-Toronto-Amritsar service on
May 15, the number of flights will go up to 56 a week-a big leap from a mere
three in 1997. Even cargo flights, such as those of Ariana to Kabul, are
planning to double their flights from three to six in a week, while First
Flight, a courier service, has evinced interest in starting operations, say
officials.

India's worst war, but most heroic moments

July 10, 1944. 5th Maratha Regiment's Yeshwant Ghadge, all of 22, was caught
in a mortal combat in the Upper Tiber Valley of Italy. Except for his
commander, his platoon had been wiped out by enemy machine-gunners. With no
alternative left, Ghadge rushed the machine gun nest, lobbing grenades,
knocking off the gun and the gunner. He charged, shot another enemy. With no
time to change his magazine, Ghadge clubbed to death two remaining enemy
gunners. Ghadge finally fell to an enemy sniper.

India's memories of the World War II are made of such tales of exceptional
valour. Fought for the British masters, it was India's biggest and worst
war. It was also a war where Indians were on either sides.

While some 2.5 million Indians fought the war for British rulers, a few
thousand men and women joined the Germany-Japan-Italy (Axis Powers)
alliance, under Subhash Chandra Bose, hoping to overthrow the British rulers
from India. Bose's venture was romantic and is an awe-inspiring chapter in
India's freedom struggle.

But for most of the Indians who donned uniforms during World War II, it was
only to earn their daily bread. Though the war was not India's, Indians were
among the most heroic, borne out by the fact that they won over 4,000
gallantry awards, among them almost 20 Victoria Crosses. Over 36,000
Indians were killed. Official estimates put the wounded at 64,000.

in the first democratic elections of South Africa's history.
The inauguration ceremony took place in the Union Buildings amphitheatre in
Pretoria today, attended by politicians and dignitaries from more than 140
countries around the world.

Never, never again will this beautiful land experience the oppression of one
by another ; Nelson Mandela

Answer sheets scandal snowballs
K. Ramachandran and Sandhya Soman

Two more students held; University officials suspect insider role

CHENNAI: The probe into the `answer sheet scam' expanded on Sunday, with
Anna University discovering that two more groups of students from Chennai's
suburbs had been involved in switching answer sheets of semester
examinations before evaluation.

University officials, who are helping the Central Crime Branch of Greater
Chennai police in the wide-ranging probe, do not rule out greater inside
involvement.

The police on Sunday arrested two more students of Valliammai Engineering
College, near here.

They were identified as Narendra Raghava (21) and Ramesh Kumar (21) from
Guduvanchery, final year Electronics and Communications Engineering
students. Seven students and three daily wagers of Anna University were
arrested on Saturday. On Sunday, all 12 were remanded to judicial custody
for 15 days.

070505/Probe Arun Shourie's Role In Centaur Deal/1945: Germany signs unconditional surrender/CAG raps IAF for "gross irregularities"/

Probe Arun Shourie's Role In Centaur Deal

The CAG report clearly points out that undervaluation had been done by the
NDA government to serve private interests "without the benefit of
competition" for any other party. The CAG report further pointed out how
Shri Arun Shourie took special interest in pushing forward the deal throwing
overboard all the norms.

The sale of the two Centaur hotels in Mumbai at the Airport and Juhu has
resulted in a net loss of crores of rupees to the public exchequer through
the dubious deals which only justifies the demand for cancellation of these
deals.

The CAG questioned the Vajpayee Government's handling of the sale of the
Centaur Hotels, the slow pace of acquiring defence equipment even after
putting in place a "fast track procedure," the sale of the security press at
Nasik (which led to the Telgi scandal), the ``India Shining'' campaign and
the appointment of "Ambassador Agnihotri." The various reports add up to a
serious indictment of the Vajpayee regime.
In the case of the Centaur Hotels, "repeated extensions and relaxations were
allowed to the bidder of Juhu Centaur to facilitate the sale." The
Disinvestment Ministry departed from its own assumptions and procedures to
facilitate the sale to "the sole bidder."
In another report, the CAG indicted the External Affairs Ministry for
incurring an "avoidable expenditure" of Rs. 15.95 crores on the post of
``Ambassador-at-large''. The post was created to accommodate and grant an
ambassadorial status to Bhishma Agnihotri, a known Rashtriya Swayamsevak
Sangh partisan.

Today in 1945 : Germany signs unconditional surrender

Germany has signed an unconditional surrender bringing to an end six years
of war in Europe, according to reports from France.
This evening the Ministry of Information has confirmed that an official
statement declaring the end of the war, will be made simultaneously in
London, Washington and Moscow tomorrow.
The day has been declared a national holiday to mark Victory in Europe Day
(VE Day). The following day (9 May) will also be a national holiday.
The BBC's Thomas Cadett watched the official signing at a schoolhouse in
Reims, northeastern France, which serves as the advance headquarters of the
supreme commander in Europe, General Dwight D Eisenhower.
The head of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, had tried to broker a peace deal two
months before but he had attached conditions to the agreement: he wanted to
keep the Nazi regime in place and stop Soviet progress into Germany.

CAG raps IAF for "gross irregularities"

New Delhi, May 7. (PTI): In a severe censure of the Nagpur-based Air Force
Maintenance Command, the Comptroller and Auditor General has rapped it for
gross "irregularities" in purchase of mosquito nets worth Rs 8.30 crores
from Reliance Industries in a single vendor purchase.
The procurement order first for 1.12 lakh mesh polyester mosquito nets worth
Rs 5.57 crores was placed on single vendor basis by the wrong issue of
"proprietary article certificate" in favour of the Reliance Industries by
claiming that it was the sole manufacturer of the fabric, CAG said in its
latest report tabled in Parliament.
CAG said the IAF command had gone in for repeat order for 55,000 more nets
worth Rs 2.73 crores on the same firm at even higher prices.
