     Claiming rights without duties is against democratic values: PM Modi

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said it was imperative that people are made aware about the importance of their duties as asserting one's own rights without rendering duties is against the fundamental value of the democracy.

    Speaking at the inauguration of the new building premises of the Central Information Commission (CIC) here, he also said that it has been noticed that some people misuse rights of people for vested interests.

    He said that the system has to bear the burden of such attempts. Modi said people need to be made aware of their duties along with their rights.

    "Only talking about rights and forgetting duties, forgetting aspirations of the Constitution, is against the fundamental spirit of the democracy," he said. (PTI)

    In-flight WiFi: Government says no security assessment done by DGCA

    The aviation regulator DGCA has not carried out any study to assess the possible security implications of Wi-Fi connectivity on board flights, the government told the Parliament today.

    In January, the telecom regulator TRAI had recommended allowing use of mobile phone calls and internet services like Wi-Fi on domestic and international flights in India, provided there is a mechanism for lawful interception and monitoring of Wi-Fi to ensure safety. (PTI)

     CBI acting at Centre's behest to malign my father's image, says Karti Chidambaram

    Karti Chidambaram, arrested son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, sought bail from a Delhi court alleging that the CBI was acting at the behest of the Centre to malign the reputation of his father during whose tenure FIPB clearance was granted to the INX Media group.

    Karti contended that his arrest was "illegal and arbitrary" but the agency opposed his bail plea, saying the investigation was at a crucial stage and his custodial interrogation was necessary to unearth the entire conspiracy in the INX Media corruption case.

    Special CBI Judge Sunil Rana posted the bail plea for hearing on March 9 when the three-day CBI custody of Karti would come to an end. (PTI)

    Samajwadi Party's "frustration" behind its understanding with BSP: Yogi Adityanath

    Taking pot-shots at rival parties, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said today it was the "frustration and helplessness" of the Samajwadi Party that led it to reach an understanding with its bitter opponent Bahujan Samaj Party ahead of the Gorakhpur and Phulpur bypolls.

    He also brushed aside opposition charges of fake encounters being staged, of BJP encouraging divisive tendencies, while also asserting that no person would be allowed to stop the march of the tricolour.

    Rejecting opposition criticism that he appeared to be the chief minister of only one community as he had told journalists that he did not celebrate Eid, Adityanath said while he was a Hindu, proud of the religion's traditions, his government would provide a conducive atmosphere to those wanting to observe the festival.
