Muslim leaders “I am more than ready to assert the superiority of a culture that is decent and humane and welcoming over a culture that thinks it’s right to kill in the name of God” he said in a speech in Singapore Once you embrace the principle of killing in the name of God “we have the war of all against all until there is only one man or one particular faith or version of faith left standing Now that is a recipe for catastrophe absolute catastrophe” he added In September Abbott suggested that the Islamic State group was worse than the Nazis during World War II angering members of the Jewish community “Islamic State has a simple but deadly message — submit or die To most a medieval fantasy but rational enough to many Muslims based on their scriptures” Abbott said Wednesday “We need to address the allure of Islamic State and part of that is defeating it because as long as it survives there is this idea that somehow it is of God and if it fails almost by definition it is not”

million voters have already cast their ballots in the polls scheduled for November 8 This was evident at an election rally addressed by former US President Bill Clinton in St Petersburg in Florida where most of the attendees raised their hands in unison when asked by the state’s governor Charlie Crist: Who have already voted Watch What Else Is Making News Stephens Richard is among the 28 million Americans (as of Tuesday) who have cast their vote in the 2016 presidential elections which is scheduled to be held on November 8 “It makes sense Why should I wait for the election day when I already know who I will be voting for I can choose the time and day of my convenience to exercise my right to vote” Richard told PTI last night after waiting for a few hours to listen to his favourite leader Hillary Clinton at Sanford in Florida In Florida one of the key battleground states some four million people have already exercised their right to vote As per some estimate in some of the key states before November 8 between one third to half of the voters would have already cast their votes Early Voting is a unique feature of the US democracy wherein a voter has the option to exercise their right to vote sometime even a month before the actual day of election Over the past few election cycle early voting has gained pace The 28-million figure for early voting this year is quite impressive given that in 2012 presidential election an estimated 126 million people had exercised their right to franchise In both 2008 and 2012 more than 30 per cent of the people cast their ballot through early voting “Early voting is convenient” Clinton told her supporters at Sanford Clinton is a strong advocate of early voting Exit polls suggests that she is leading in early voting The Democratic presidential nominee has a huge team of staffers and volunteers across the country who are pushing people to go out and vote early “You can go to early vote in this county in every county and you can do it between now and the end of business next Sunday I hope on the way over here or on the way somewhere tomorrow you’ll go to the nearest early voting site Not far from here is the North Branch Library one block away on North Palmetto Avenue” she said But for her Republican rival Donald Trump people going out to vote early is not good Since he trailed badly till last week Trump’s supporters believe early voters are Clinton backers The Republican establishment’s nervousness was visible when Trump raised the issue during an election meeting in Wisconsin “This is a message for any Democratic voter who has already cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer’s remorse in other words you want to change your vote: Wisconsin is one of several states where you can change your early ballot if you think you’ve made a mistake” Trump told his supporters at a rally in Eau Claire Referring to the recent decision of the FBI to reopen its investigations into the alleged email scandal Trump said a lot of stuff has come out since they voted At least three states of Michigan Pennsylvania and Minnesota give people an option to change their early voting “Early voting has also fundamentally changed campaigns in other ways Campaigns now run voter mobilisation efforts during the entire early voting period This gives them a chance to ask more voters to support their candidate and these contacts have been well-established to increase turnout” said Michael McDonald a political science professor at the University of Florida A well-known expert on early voting McDonald attributes the rise in early voting to two phenomenon “More states are offering early voting options and once a state adopts early voting more people vote early a part of their election regimen” he said Agreed Sambhu Banik an eminent Indian-American from Maryland “This is the first time in our over 40 years of voting we witnessed such a huge line to cast vote But we feel very good that we have exercised our citizenry obligation as each vote counts” said Banik after casting his vote at the Potomac Community Centre in Potomac Maryland last week McDonald said early voting has changed how elections are run “Fewer people voting on Election Day means shorter lines and a better voting experience for voters Election officials track early voting and share this information with the campaigns An election pro-tip: if you vote early the campaigns stop sending you mail calling you or knocking on your door” he said For all the latest World News download Indian

states are facing illegal delays in wage payments More than half of this amount is in drought-affected states Top News As India faces the onslaught of another severe drought and water food and employment dry up the government will claim that it is doing its best to cope with the adversity But given the facts that will be a patently false statement The cynical attitude towards the MGNREGA is an example of how policymakers are deliberately and knowingly — by squeezing funds and subverting the legal mandate of the law — causing immeasurable misery and suffering to people Through the fund squeeze the government has consciously crippled the MGNREGA’s ability to help people facing drought Officially the drought has affected over a third of the country — nine out of the 29 states 248 out of 660 districts 2327 out of 6800 blocks and 96954 out of 257000 panchayats Unlike natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes which destroy ecosystems in a few moments droughts take hold slowly and provide clear warnings to policymakers thus giving them a chance to plan and execute effective drought management strategy Yet once it settles in a mismanaged drought can wipe out economic progress made over decades pushing an entire generation back into abject poverty The MGNREGA was inspired by the Maharashtra Employment Guarantee Act passed in 1977 wherein policymakers found wage employment as the best way to empower people against drought The funding for the state scheme came from four taxes imposed on those less affected by the drought The money so received went into a fund dedicated to the scheme However the MGNREGA hasn’t been as fortunate Despite its proven success the scheme is itself facing a monetary drought Some facts: A whopping Rs 10588 crore is currently pending in payment delays In other words nine crore workers in 25 states are facing illegal delays in wage payments More than half of this amount is in drought-affected states The saddest part is that notwithstanding the government’s grand announcement — increasing the number of workdays to 150 in the nine drought-affected states — all these states have a negative cash balance It’s hardly surprising then that only 5 per cent households have completed 150 days of work This is conclusive proof that the government is ignoring the two most important legal requirements of the MGNREGA — work on demand and full and timely payment of wages Despite its proven success the scheme is itself facing a monetary drought The fund squeeze sets off a vicious cycle — delayed payments leading to lesser demand and still fewer payments — resulting in helplessness and distress migration The continued shortage of funds severely undermines the credibility of the law State governments and local administrators too are in a quandary: The law requires them to provide work but they don’t have enough money to pay the wages Communication accessed under the RTI Act shows that state governments have been unsuccessfully appealing for adequate fund releases and are being forced to ration funds for the year This distortion turns the law into a cruel joke But drought-affected people are not the only ones distressed Many company heads who have unpaid dues stacking up as bank NPAs such as Vijay Mallya too have been forced into distress migration In the budget there’s a full section on taxes forgone for the corporate sector And on March 23 Ravi Shankar Prasad the minister for communication and information technology announced a Rs 14724 crore Holi gift for government employees with a 6 per cent increase in their daily allowance It’s clear that there are many competing priorities in India As prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri had suggested that the well-off should forgo meals so that the starving could be fed That noble thought never worked The MGNREGA was an attempt to institutionalise responsibility and move beyond such individual efforts But this has been systematically undermined with disastrous consequences The MGNREGA is not the only measure required to fight a drought but an honest implementation of the law could make a huge difference There’s no substitute for an honest effort The writers are social activists working in Rajasthan For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsKolkata: The West Bengal government has decided to drop the tag "Pradhan Mantri" from "Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna" and rename it as "Bangla Fasal Bima Yojna" a senior minister said on Wednesday The reason behind the decision to drop the Pradhan Mantri tag taken at a state cabinet meeting earlier this month was that the Centre’s share in such schemes had come down to 50:50 state Agriculture Minister Purnendu Basu told PTIPrime Minister Narendra Modi PTI "We do not see any necessity in continuing with the Pradhan Mantri tag on a project for which the state government has been contributing much This decision was taken at a cabinet meeting" Basu said As per the norm the farmer had to pay one-third of it while the remaining two-thirds was borne by the Centre and the state government Earlier the Centre’s contribution was either 90 percent or around 75 percent which now came down to 50 percent or below in several schemes "Give me a logic why we should continue with the name Pradhan Mantri when the state government’s contribution to the scheme was maximum" Basu said The state has already renamed some of the Central government schemes like Swacchh Bharat has become Nirmal Bangla It was also learnt that the Centre has sent a letter to the state Panchayat department seeking the reason behind dropping "Pradhan Mantri" tag from the schemes Mumbai: Rescue personnel on Wednesdaybraved high water current and crocodile hotbeds in Savitri River to

recover a body or remains of vehicles we are reporting about it to the disaster control room set up in Mumbai" he said Senior officials as well as Chief Minister are keeping a close watch on the developments he said On the reasons why security agencies failed to trace or recover more bodies and swept away vehicles Bagal said the high current of muddy water was posing a challenge for the crew members Also a few search areas are homes to crocodiles therefore they have to take extra caution during their operation he said "Once the water level recedes the divers would be able to do their job at the best" he said NDRF’s 5th battalion commandant Anupam Srivastava said his four teams comprising 40 crew members each were at work since morning Meanwhile the Raigad administration has made arrangements for the lodging of nearly 100 kin of the victims who are camping at the site of the collapsed bridge Few relatives of the missing persons on Tuesdayexpressed anger over the failure to recover more bodies and vehicles swept away in the water "Yes their anguish and despondency is obvious That is why the senior officials of security agencies involved in search operation yesterday met
