Delhi government has scrapped the Annual Maintenance Clause (AMC) from its tendering process for procurement of buses Officials called it an “obstacle” which has been keeping the government’s Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) from buying buses for the last seven years Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot Wednesday said the DTC had decided to do away with the annual maintenance clause — which made it mandatory for bus manufacturers to look after the upkeep and maintenance of buses after selling it to the Delhi government The DTC Gahlot said will now maintain the 1000 new non-AC standard floor buses that the state government is planning to purchase this financial year at a cost of Rs 400 crore Technicians will be hired if required for the upkeep of the buses he said“The DTC board decided Tuesday to procure 1000 standard-floor buses which will augment public transport in the city because there is a huge shortage The annual maintenance clause a major hurdle in procurement has been scrapped” Gahlot said The DTC will soon float tenders for the procurement of buses purchase them and begin bringing them out on the city roads this financial year a government official said The scrapping of the AMC should attract more manufacturers once the tenders are floated the official added “The AMC was the primary hurdle that was preventing us from procuring new buses for the last six years With transport being an essential service the government needs to control at least 50 per cent of the bus fleet Keeping that in mind the government has decided to maintain the buses itself instead of paying a huge amount demanded by the private manufacturers This is a huge milestone for the DTC as an organisation The DTC has the competence it has good technicians and workshops… Only a little reorganisation is needed that’s all” Gahlot said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Odense | Published: October 18 2017 5:39 pm Kidambi Srikanth is one of the more talented players by far feels Viktor Axelson’s coach Kenneth Jonassen (Source: File) Related News Current World Champion Viktor Axelsen’s coach Kenneth Jonassen rated Kidambi Srikanth as one of the toughest players to beat but at the same time urged the Indian to be more consistent “For me world No 1 doesn’t matter It is about being able to peak at right time at Olympics World Championship Thomas Cup that’s the key Srikanth is one of the more talented players by far He looks so athletic on court but I think he needs to be more consistent” Denmark chief coach Jonassen told PTI during an interaction “The transition that I have seen in him in last six months has been amazing I count him one of the toughest players He plays very well against Chen Long He is difficult for anybody to beat so it is a matter of time “Of course I don’t know him I don’t know how he is to work with I don’t know what he is going through mentally From my point of view just by looking at him the kind of talent he is he is already doing great and he has the potential to go far” Jonassen said when asked about his opinion about Srikanth Jonassen joined Danish National team as its chief coach in 2013 after coaching England for some time His presence saw Axelsen emerge as a world beater who bagged bronze at Rio Olympics and then clinched the World Championship title beating Lin Dan in Glasgow He is currently the world No 1 Jonassen however felt given the fierce competition in men’s singles it will be difficult to hold on to the numero uno status by Axelsen “The competition is fierce It will be very difficult to dominate In earlier times we have seen three or four players standing out winning tournaments but now overall you can’t play even at 95 percent There are atleast 20-25 players in the draw who can beat you” said the 43-year-old who won the gold medal at the 2008 European Badminton Championships Jonassen admitted that India do have quality players who are eager to do well at the highest level “I see India coming up with 6-8 players who are hungry and determined for success Japan also have Kento Momota who is coming back for sure and he is one of the players we are looking forward to see at the super series level he deserves to be here and he would be in the contention in future” he added Jonassen feels India is slowly finding its way in doubles and picked young Satwik Sai Raj Rankireddy for effusive praise “I think India is slowly moving on You have a young doubles pair who did extremely well in Korea Open Satwik is extremely talented he has power beyond his age definitely and I think he and his partner has huge potential I think Tan Kim Her is doing a good job” he said “Even in the women’s doubles (N Sikki Reddy and Ashwini Ponappa) is moving along and giving us a lot of problems they played a good game against Christina and Kamilla So I am seeing an improvement and at this stage it will be slow and one has to be patient I believe India can achieve great things” he said Jonassen said training for doubles requires different kind of environment as India traditionally have always been a singles playing nation “The tradition in India has been singles and it takes time to build that kind of training environment for doubles India have the resources in players and finances to hire the right coaches to make the players dedicate themselves to doubles and I can’t see why India won’t succeed I think Gopichand has the vision I think it is a matter of time” he explained Asked if ‘Holy Trinity’ of Lee Chong Wei Lin Dan and Chen Long are at the business end of their respective careers Jonassen said:”I will never rule out players like Lee Chong Wei his skill level is exceptional The way he is able to play under pressure create his own points with a great attack it would be a mistake” he said “It would also be a major mistake to rule out Lin Dan He is by far the best player to have played the game and he still looks hungry and when he is hungry he is dangerous” he added On helping Axelsen become the best in the world Jonassen said: “It has been a long and tough journey Talent is one thing but achieving greatness at the senior level is another thing But the most important thing is to achieve it in those weeks when it really matters is totally different Viktor has gone through a tough

group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel in response to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital Palestinian factions called for a “Day of Rage” on Friday and on Thursday a wave of protest in the West Bank and Gaza brought clashes between Palestinians and Israeli troops At least 31 people were wounded by Israeli gunfire and rubber bullets medics said The Israeli military said on Thursday evening two rockets had been fired towards Israel from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip but did not cross into Israeli territory The military said it was reinforcing troops in the occupied West Bank Medics said 11 people had been hit by live bullets and 20 by rubber bullets in the Thursday unrest One was in a critical condition Some protesters threw rocks at soldiers and others chanted: “Death to America Death to the fool Trump” Trump reversed decades of US policy on Wednesday by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel angering the Arab world and upsetting Western allies The status of Jerusalem – home to sites holy to the Muslim Jewish and Christian religions – is one of the biggest obstacles to a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians “We should call for and we should work on launching an intifada (Palestinian uprising) in the face of the Zionist enemy” Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said in a speech in Gaza On Friday’s “Day of Rage” rallies and protests are expected near Israeli-controlled checkpoints in the West Bank and along the border with Gaza Friday prayers at the Muslim shrine of Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem could also be a flashpoint Naser Al-Qidwa an aide to Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and senior official in his Fatah party urged Palestinians to stage protests but said they should be peaceful Abbas on Thursday met Jordan’s King Abdullah whose dynasty is traditional custodian of Jerusalem’s holy places Jordan is a staunch US ally but has dismissed Trump’s move as “legally null” Palestinian news agency Wafa said Abbas updated the king on “the imminent dangers in light of the decision by US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of the occupation state and the mechanism of future steps to protect the holy city” Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of their own to be in the city’s eastern sector which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed in a move never recognised internationally TRUMP “IMMORTALISED” Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem a step expected to take years a move his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark” and said many countries would follow the US move and contacts were under way He did not name the countries “President Trump has immortalised himself in the chronicles of our capital His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and of our people” he said in a speech at Israel’s Foreign Ministry Other close Western allies of Washington including France and Britain have been critical of Trump’s move Pope Francis has called for Jerusalem’s status quo to be respected while China and Russia have expressed concern A man walks by as the Israeli national flag and an American one are projected on a part of the walls surrounding Jerusalem’s Old City December 6 2017 REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun/FilesThe EU’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said: “The European Union has a clear and united position We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital of both” The United Nations Security Council is likely to meet on Friday to discuss the US decision diplomats said Trump’s decision has raised doubts about his administration’s ability to follow through on a peace effort that his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has led for months aimed at reviving long-stalled negotiations Haniyeh called on Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts “We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine” Haniyeh said BACKLASH EXPECTED Israel and the United States consider Hamas which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007 a terrorist organisation Hamas does not recognise Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada from 2000 to 2005 Slideshow (7

international community does not recognise Israeli sovereignty over the whole of Jerusalem and no other country has its embassy there Trump’s decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals He said his move was not intended to tip the scales in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties but the move was seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people according to a State Department document seen by Reuters “The president has directed me and the State Department to undertake the process to begin an effort to move the embassy” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in Vienna “This is not something that will happen overnight” In Lebanon Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah backed calls for a new intafada and said: “We are facing blatant American aggression” Islamist militant group Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula said Trump’s decision was the result of “normalisation steps” between some Gulf Arab countries and Israel “It is also a clear challenge to the Muslim world” the Yemen-based group said Protests have broken out since Trump’s announcement in Jordan outside the US consulate in Istanbul and in Pakistan Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in Muslim territory” Palestinians switched off

Director of the Local Organising Committee Javier Ceppi said Kochi has really picked up the pace of the renovations after the ‘big scare’ in March (over delays) The Jawaharlal Nehru International stadium Image Courtesy: FIFA U-17 World Cup Earlier the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium was declared fit for hosting the prestigious FIFA U-17 World Cup The stadium which boasts of a capacity of 60000 people will however accommodate a maximum of 41748 persons for the tournament considering the safety and security of spectators "With one hundred days to go things seem to be under control and the renovations are going as planned" he said in a release He said the fans too have started to show more interest and are responding to the World Cup by getting their tickets early "We hope to

Sports Academy Panampilly Ground The FIFA U-17 World Cup will be played between October 6 and October 28 later this year It was in October last year that Kochi was officially declared as one of the venues for hosting the FIFA U-17 World Cup by a high-level delegation of football’s world body It was different It was intense It was a realWorld Cup final Before the tournament India were David and England Goliath David did the inevitable and silenced Goliath in the tournament opener They did the unthinkable and raced to the semi-finals to face mighty Australia In women’s cricket this Australian Women’s team is equivalent to the Ricky Ponting-led unit of the 2000s — near-invincible and dominant Surely India’s journey was coming to an end After all they had beat this Australian unit only once in eight games before the semis Then came that moment of brilliance from Harmanpreet Kaur that turned the game and India cruised to the finals to find England yet again They strove they fought they dominated they struggled they lost Not since MS Dhoni slogged Sri Lanka to oblivion in Mumbai had the cricketing world seen such an intense final The match had everything for which a cricket fan pays to enter a stadium: Drama action and ambition India hadn’t played a World Cup final at Lord’s since Kapil Dev’s unassuming men denied a juggernaut of a side called West Indies in 1983 Here the women returned to the historic venue in hope of completing another heist That was not to be as Heather Knight and her troops led by a confidence oozing Anya Shrubsole came back from certain defeat to script a historic triumph in front of their home crowd India players stand dejected prior to receiving their runners-up medals after losing the ICC Women’s World Cup final match against England at Lord’s in London AP The action Put in to bat England lost three upfront but recompiled through Sarah Taylor and Nat Sciver It took a magical spell from Jhulan Goswami — who in the semis bowled Meg Lanning with the ball of the tournament — to halt England’s cruise Goswami took wickets off consecutive balls and England were suddenly reeling The tail battled Their uncontrollable sword blades swished in the tense atmosphere around the ground England were breathing They had 228 on board It was by no means a winning total but they had a straw to clutch on to Smriti Mandhana who won several admirers at the start of the tournament with two game changing innings was at the crease after a series of failures She failed again Surely the floppy hat-wearing Mithali Raj their charismatic leader would take them through She didn’t Some lazy running handed India a huge blow as Raj departed But the country celebrated as Harmanpreet Kaur put on another show Punam Raut meanwhile was nudging singles at will to race past a half-century The game was well within India’s grasp They had faltered in the past But this was different They had immense support and millions watching this time around They had an experienced skipper and some flamboyant cricketers But eventually it all boiled down to who could handle pressure India couldn’t The women slogged The conditions were sluggish and they should have known that such shots were unwarranted on this track They lost one two and then a whole lot more Shrubsole shoved in some more of those skiddy leg-cutters to seal India’s fate That was experience playing a huge role She was 2014 the Women’s World T20 player of the tournament She knew pressure more than most England were smiling Sarah Taylor was smiling Shrubsole was smiling Knight their beloved skipper was literally giggling “I can’t stop smiling” Knight said after the match The Indians weren’t smiling They had fought and dominated but they lost when it mattered But was this result important For years women cricketers had taken a backseat were neglected and ignored Their male counterparts were worshipped while the fans could barely blurt out a name or two from women’s teams All that has changed as the women took centre stage in the 2017 event in England A record 50 million people tuned in to watch this World Cup an 80 percent increase from 2013 The tickets for the World Cup final were sold out with a record 26000+ bearing witness to a remarkable World Cup final Steve Elworthy the director of this Women’s World Cup was intent on making this event as good as the men’s “It’s punching above its weight” Elworthy had commented “Hopefully this tournament will be a springboard for women’s cricket around the country and around the world" Knight commented after the final It sure is The intensity of this final has no close comparisons in the men’s game Such was the manner in which both teams fought that the fans barely had a breather It had everything From dubious running dropped catches missed run-outs debatable third-umpire calls to brilliantly set fields sharp cricketing brains smart bowling changes and game changing spells this World Cup final was a highlights package right till the very last ball When the Women’s World Cup started out in 1973 two years before the first Men’s World Cup it was small The Men’s World Cup gained popularity with each year and reached a pinnacle in 2011 The Women’s World Cup was barely shown since few watched it anyway But the cricketing world needed a change Things had gotten too predictable with the glam and bash of T20s offering the only reprieve Enter the women and a tournament to remember fondly forever Forty-four years ago when the inaugural Women’s World Cup took place Lewis Carroll’s Alice took a giant leap into a hole chasing a rabbit She entered a Wonderland in her dreams a land brimming with immense possibilities and entertainment Unlike in the story women’s cricket is waking up to a Wonderland The golden years are here and this World Cup final at Lord’s will be seen as an advertisement for women’s cricket None of India’s mishaps or England’s joys in this finale will matter years down the lane All the cricketing world will remember is the feast these teams offered to thousands at Lord’s on this day Women’s cricket will never be the same again Its players will never be looked upon the same way again They have reached Wonderland Let the adventures begin Day 2 report: Opener Cheteshwar Pujara’s sublime unbeaten 135-run knock helped India reach 292/8 at stumps on the second day of the third Test against hosts Sri Lanka at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) here on Saturday Rain forced early conclusion of the second day’s proceedings but not before Pujara partnered by lower-order batsman Amit Mishra (59) put on a 104-run eighth wicket stand to revive India from a precarious position at 119/5 File picture of Cheteshwar Pujara AP The stand was India’s highest eighth wicket partnership against Sri Lanka and was also the highest for the eighth wicket at this ground At stumps Pujara was accompanied by Ishant Sharma who was unbeaten on 2 It was Pujara’s who is playing the first match of the series seventh Test century The umpires called for halt of play on Saturday when a late shower forced a delay in the proceedings They then decided to call off play for the day due to a wet outfield in which India scored 292 runs from 953 overs bowled Sri Lanka’s pacer Dhammika Prasad has been the home team’s best bowler with an analysis of 83/4 from 233 overs when stumps were drawn India began at their overnight score of 50/2 only to lose Virat Kohli (18) and Rohit Sharma (26) both of whom perished after getting sound starts Kohli was dismissed by Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews who induced an edge from him to be caught by wicketkeeper Kushal Perera He was sent to the pavilion fairly quickly in the ninth over of the innings when after a 50-run third wicket partnership with Pujara he flashed at a wide delivery outside his off stump to give an easy chance behind the stumps Rohit joined Pujara and they batted with caution wary of the moving delivery Pujara grew in confidence as his duration at the crease increased and reached his fifty in the 43rd over He batted patiently to negotiate the early morning bowling venom of the hosts He and Rohit put together a 55-run third wicket stand but their effort was undone just at the stroke of lunch when the latter edged a moving ball to the first slip India were reduced to 119/4 in 455 overs at lunch India scored only 69 runs in 305 overs in the morning session losing those two crucial wickets in the process It went from bad to worse when play resumed after lunch with all-rounder Stuart Binny (0) getting out on the first ball of the post-lunch session Debutant Naman Ojha (21) forged a 54-run stand for the sixth wicket with Pujara but perished when things began to look up for India Ravichandran Ashwin’s (5) quick dismissal increased India’s troubles as they lost the seventh wicket for 180 runs But from there Pujara with Mishra in tow began the revival process He remained unmoved by the flurry of wickets and played well all around the park — especially elegant while playing the cut shots The 27-year-old cut down his strokes as he moved near the three-figure mark even as Mishra played freely He reached his century in 214 deliveries with the help of nine fours and later added another four boundaries Pujara also got a reprieve at his personal score of 117 as Nuwan Pradeep dropped a catch at fine-leg off a Mathews delivery IANS Brazil has 30 points _ more than enough to secure a spot in previous World Cups.determination and will power.
