Security tightened as Thai protesters seek PM’s downfall

BANGKOK - Police tightened security in Thailand’s capital on Sat-urday as thousands of protesters rallied outside a state telecommunications group and vowed to occupy Prime Minister Yingluck Shi-nawatra’s office to paralyse her administration. Faced with dwindling support, demonstrators have started to up the ante and burst into the headquarters of the army, urging it to join their side in a complex power struggle centred on the enduring political influence of Yingluck’s billionaire brother, ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. “ Brothers and sisters, we will announce our victory and our defeat of the Thaksin regime,” protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban told a rally of thousands late. Several thousand were outside the offices of state-owned TOT Plc, a telecoms company.


KOLKATA - Former Supreme Court judge Ashok Kumar Gan-guly, who has been accused of sexually harassing a former law intern, today said he would not comment on a post in her blog which hinted at filing a police complaint.

The intern has hit back at him for denying the charges. She wrote on her blog on ‘Legally India’, “Those who have been spreading rumours and politicizing the issue, are doing so out of prejudice and malice to obfuscate the issue and escape scrutiny and accountability.”

Indicating that she might lodge a police complaint, the intern said, “I request that it be acknowledged that I have the discernment to pursue appropriate proceedings at appropriate time. I ask that my autonomy be respected fully.” Asked by PTI whether protests and pressure from various quarters were politically motivated, the former judge replied, “I don’t want to say anything on the matter. I have no reaction.” Justice Ganguly had written an eight-page letter to Chief Justice of India P Sathasivam, denying that he had sexually harassed the intern.

After stunning victory, AAP chief says honest politics won

NEW DLHI - “Who are we? We are the aam admi of this country. We are very ordinary people. But when ordinary people stand up to injustice, they shake up the establishment,” announced Arvind Kejri-wal in a voice choked with emotion to a thunderous applause and loud cheering on Sunday evening. His first public address after winning the elections, and the first in several weeks in fact, showed the newfound confidence and self-assurance that can be expected from a man who managed to not just disturb but maybe even end the political careers and aspirations of several members of the major established parties. “This is the first time that an election has been fought on the basis of truth and honesty,” he told a throng of reporters.
