India To Help Ghana Build 400-Seater Capacity Parliamentary Chamber

Leave a Comment
Ghana's wish to have a new Parliamentary Chamber to accommodate more people could soon materialise, following the decision of the Indian government to extend its assistance in that regard.

The 400-seater capacity new chamber will replace the present 275-seater capacity chamber which was configured in 2013 to accommodate more Members of Parliament (MPs).

The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Aaron Ocquaye, told the Daily Graphic in an interview in India on the sidelines of the just-ended 12th Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) Exim Bank Conclave on India-Africa Partnership in India that an Indian construction firm, Shapoorji Pallonji, which built the Flagstaff House from 2006 to 2008, had already put a team of architects on site for feasibility studies.

The studies, he said, would allow the company to present a proposal and drawings of the new facility to the leadership of Parliament to be studied for a possible approval.

Three posters carrying the name of ISIS and asking youths in Bihar to join the terror organisation were found pasted on electric poles at Maoist-infested Sikrauli Bihga village under Nauhatta police station in Rohtas district, around 150km from here, on Saturday.

Police sources said the posters in English claimed that the terror group has its presence in all parts of the country, including Bihar.

Rohtas SP M S Dhillon said the village where the posters have been found pasted is remotely located. "We are trying to find out if any suspicious person reached the village during Holi. Villagers are also being quizzed," he said, adding an FIR has been lodged against unknown persons in connection with recovery of posters.

Near Jim Corbett, Forest Dept Uses JCB to Move Tiger๐Ÿฏ Which Ends Up Dead๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Leave a Comment

A tiger pinned down by an earthmover, after it was possibly overdosed during attempts at tranquillisation in the forests adjacent to the Corbett tiger reserve, died soon after it was captured.

On Thursday morning, a group of migrant labourers working at a stone quarry on the Dabka river went inside the forests of Belpadav range in the Terai West Forest Division where they chanced upon the male tiger.

According to local forest sources, the quarrying lobby put pressure on the forest officials to immediately remove the tiger as the panic-stricken migrant labourers threatened to abandon work and flee. The forest personnel swung into action with tranquillising guns and used an earthmover from a local quarry to pin down the tiger even before the drugs took effect. The big cat was injured in the process and died while being transported to the Nainital zoo the same day.
