The Assembly polls are set to be held within the next four months.Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said, “We have elected a new team, considering certain criteria such as regional balance and performance. We have given opportunity to new faces, and no minister from the previous team has been removed over allegations of corruption or non-performance.” Of the 13, eight are from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), two from the Shiv Sena and one from the Republican Party of India (Athawale).As the new ministers were sworn in, six others submitted their resignations to Mr. Fadnavis, including three Cabinet ministers: Housing Minister Prakash Mehta, Social Justice Minister Rajkumar Badole and Tribal Welfare Minister Vishnu Savra. The three Ministers of State who resigned are Dilip Kamble, MoS for Social Justice and Special Assistance, Relief and Rehabilitation, Minority Welfare; Pravin Pote, MoS for Industries, Mining, Environment and Public Works Department; and Raje Ambreeshrao Atram, MoS for Tribal Welfare.Mr. Fadnavis is the first Maharashtra Chief Minister to have inducted two Leaders of Opposition (LoP) in his Cabinet. Former Congressman and LoP in the Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil was the first to be sworn in to the Cabinet on Sunday. In the second expansion, Shiv Sena leader and former LoP Eknath Shinde had been inducted into the Cabinet after the Sena decided to support the government.After taking oath as minister, Mr. Vikhe-Patil said he performed his duties as LoP with due diligence and honesty, and will do the same with the duties bestowed upon him by Mr. Fadnavis. “Constructive work for society can be done only after joining the government,” he said. When asked about the allegations of corruption he had levelled against Mr. Fadnavis, he said inquiries were ordered after his allegations, and will continue. While Mr. Vikhe-Patil, who was sworn in from the BJP’s quota, former Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Jaydutta Kshirsagar was inducted as a cabinet minister from the Sena. Mr. Kshirsagar, who quit the NCP during the Lok Sabha election campaign, was the minister of Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) in the Congress-NCP government from 2009-14. The Sena’s second pick, first-time MLC Tanaji Savant, was a surprise entrant in the Cabinet.BJP Mumbai chief Ashish Shelar was also inducted as Cabinet minister. Mr. Shelar is a former president of the Mumbai Cricket Association, and was rewarded for his contribution to the party’s growth in Mumbai. The BJP increased its tally in the Brihanmumbai Muncipal Corporation from 33 to 83 in the 2017 civic polls. The other Cabinet ministers sworn in include Suresh Khade from Sangli district, where the party is aiming to consolidate its base during the Assembly polls.

Davis turns ankle, but Pelicans roll to 10th straight win

first_imgMOST READ Pussycat Dolls set for reunion tour after 10-year hiatus Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving New Orleans, which has played well since losing center DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending injury in January, kept rolling without Davis, although the Kings made a brief run late in the fourth.Buddy Hield hit a 3-pointer to pull Sacramento within 103-94 with 3:12 left, but Nikola Mirotic and Jrue Holiday both hit 3s and combined for 11 straight points to help the Pelicans pull away.“We can do that against teams like this,” Davis said. “But to better ourselves we have to do a better job, at least when I was in there, to make sure that we execute our game plans and don’t play down to the level of our competition. We went out there and thought it was going to be an easy game.”Mirotic scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, Holiday had 23 points and eight assists, and E’Twaun Moore added 15 points.The 10-game winning streak matches the Pelicans’ franchise record set Jan. 9-26, 2011. New Orleans has scored 100 or more points in each of the wins, setting another team record.ADVERTISEMENT Hield had 20 points while Zach Randolph added 19 points and five rebounds for Sacramento.The Kings, who have lost six of eight, played the final 42 minutes without point guard De’Aaron Fox. He left early in the first quarter due to lower back stiffness.“It seemed like everything was real difficult,” Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said. “We missed a lot of open shots also, which certainly would have helped.”Ian Clark’s 16-foot jumper and 3-pointer on consecutive possessions capped a 12-4 run to end the first and put the Pelicans up 32-21.With Davis getting a lengthy rest on the bench for most of the second quarter, New Orleans extended its advantage to 49-29 on another deep shot from Clark. Holiday later scored eight consecutive points and Davis added a late three-point play to help the Pelicans take a 62-44 halftime lead.MIROTIC’S MOMENTMirotic made 10 of 12 shots and is shooting 56.3 percent over his last four games.“I’ve been taking a lot of extra work to get my confidence back because I was (in) a little struggle in the beginning with my shots,” Mirotic said. “Now it seems that I did get my rhythm.”GOING HOMEThe Pelicans get a break with eight of their next nine in New Orleans after playing eight of their past 11 on the road. They’re in the thick of the playoff race in the Western Conference.“We knew that this would be a real difficult stretch,” Gentry said. “The thing that we wanted to do is just give ourselves an opportunity at the end of games to win on the road. We’ve done a good job with that.”TIP-INSPelicans: New Orleans has won seven straight road games, one shy of the franchise record set in 2007-08. … The Pelicans shot 60.9 percent (14 of 23) in the opening quarter.

The five-time All-Star winced and grabbed at his ankle before slowly getting to his feet. Davis remained in the game briefly before being taken to the Pelicans locker room with 3:11 left in the third. He did not return and appeared to be getting fitted for a walking boot after the game.“I feel fine but they’ll have the team doctor look at it tomorrow and go from there,” Davis said. “Any time you twist an ankle it hurts, especially coming off somebody’s foot because you really don’t have any protection. It was sore.

Johnstone rues Aberdeen missed chance believes Rangers must bounce back

first_imgFormer Rangers player Derek Johnstone believes Aberdeen home defeat is a momentary setback for the team and that they will get past it to remain in title contention.Derek told Evening Times:“They had one chance and scored. How people can say they were the better team, I don’t know.”“Defensively, yes. They got everyone back behind the ball and defended well, but Joe Lewis has made three or four great saves.”“I thought Rangers were poor, there was nobody that got pass marks, Allan McGregor aside because he had no chance with the goal and little to do after that.”“You can’t go through the game performing like that and expect to beat Aberdeen. If you don’t have the majority of players getting pass marks, you won’t win the game.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“A lot of the fans got excited after the win over Hearts and then they feel like they are back down with a bump following the Aberdeen game.”“You have got to remember where Rangers were starting from and everyone knows that we have still got a bit to do.”“If you want to win leagues, you need to be consistent. You might not be at your best every week, but you don’t let your performances drop below a level and you win game after game after game.”“As it turned out, Rangers had a chance to go clear on Wednesday night and it was a real opportunity missed, unfortunately.”“Rangers are going to have their ups and downs over the season and there is no doubt that was a major down for everyone against Aberdeen.”“The important thing now is how the players react and the manager will leave them in no doubt about what is required when they head to Dundee this weekend.”last_img read more

Fowler slams totally unacceptable Salah diving debate

first_imgLiverpool legend Robbie Fowler has risen to Mohamed Salah’s defence over the “hostile” diving debate and suggested he’s being singled out as a foreign player.Due to his apparent willingness to fall to the ground too easily in a challenge, Salah has faced plenty of backlash over the last few weeks.Unlike fellow Reds legend John Aldridge, however, Fowler reckons Salah is within his rights to go down to the ground when touched.“I was never one for diving — if I had a chance to get a shot off, I’d always take it,” Fowler wrote in the Daily Mirror.“Yet, I’ve been shaking my head in disbelief at the criticism aimed at Mohamed Salah in recent weeks for what people have been particularly eager to call cheating.“It’s been sustained and hostile, and I’m wondering why.“Why it’s been much worse than that aimed at Harry Kane this season, for instance, or in the past say Michael Owen or David ­Beckham (and I’m not singling them out!).“We have to be very careful as football fans. We need to stop and think about whether Salah is being targeted for where he comes from and who he is.“It seems like stereotyping, and­ possibly because he’s an overseas player.“If that is the case, it’s totally ­unacceptable.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.He added: “Yes, there have been times when Salah has gone over a bit ­theatrically, ­sometimes he may have gone down a bit easily.“Two things. One, who doesn’t now? Two, he’s ­almost always been kicked.“In fact, he has been kicked mercilessly for 18 months. And if he doesn’t go down in a way which lets the ref see he’s been kicked, then will he get the decision? No chance.“Watching the Arsenal-Manchester United game on Friday, Paul Pogba went through early, got hacked from behind, but didn’t go down and then lost the ball. No free-kick.“Soon after, goes through again, gets pulled back slightly. What does he do? Of course, he goes down, because otherwise, he knows if he tries to get a shot off and fails, he gets nothing again. It is not as simple as people are making out.“If Salah was this massive cheat people seem to be trying to portray him as, why was the penalty he ­converted against Newcastle at the end of December the first awarded for Liverpool at Anfield in 18 months?“In that time, he’s scored almost 50 league goals, and not one until this past Boxing Day was a penalty in a home game.”Fowler is a former striker, who scored 183 goals in 369 games across two separate spells for Liverpool.The 43-year-old won the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup in his time at Anfield and is considered a “god” among the supporters.last_img read more
