NEW DELHI: The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) on Thursday said that it has approached the Supreme Court to plead for a review of its judgement issued over the BS III vehicles. In a statement, SIAM said that it has filed a review petition with the apex court to point out "certain facts" that were not covered in the judgment. The move comes after the apex court banned the sale and registration of non-BS IV compliant vehicles from April 1, 2017. According to the industry association, the Supreme Court has "erroneously construed" an office memorandum from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (dated March 3, 2017) to be an office memorandum dated March 3, 2015. This "erroneously construed" office memorandum led to the misunderstanding that the government had "sent a clear message" to the manufacturers to stop production of BS III vehicles before April 1, 2017, the industry association said.

The guidance is that a crowded diary means there isn't time to rehearse. But I hear other forces were at play. The Queen wanted to be at Royal Ascot the rest of that week so wasn't about to throw away her betting slips and race back for the usual Wednesday state opening which could otherwise have happened on 21st June. The government wasn't mad keen on waiting until the next week and 30th June for the traditional Wednesday State Opening of Parliament because that would limit the amount of time there was to start work on Bills ahead of the Summer recess and look like they were getting on with the job. One source suggested it would also limit the options for an early, Summer Budget, something which was still in play as a possibility, even though the Chancellor said only in March that the country had been subjected to too many fiscal events in recent times and the government would be cutting back to an annual one in the autumn.

" (citing IPSOS research). According to OECD research, Turkish students are the unhappiest in the world with 72 percent saying they are very unhappy with conditions. So given Turkey's very high rate of young population, up to six percent of the voters in the next election cycle, which starts in March 2019, will be first-time voters, which in my view is slipping from their [Erdogan government's] grasp”. 2019 is scheduled for an unprecedented three polls - of local, general and presidential elections. Erdogan’s success in the referendum was due in part to the overwhelmingly support he received in the rural heartland of the country, known as Anatolia, a region that has particularly benefited from the expansion of social security benefits under Erdogan’s AK Party rule. “I detect that certain voters are becoming clients of AKP, these people can't survive in the globalized economy of Turkey,” claims consultant Yesilada, “they are largely existing on account of the welfare state and also AKP has been very successful in imposing the view entitlements are coming form the party, rather than the state.

Protective order Villavicencio traveled to Washington in 2014 to get a protective order from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Ecuador’s government said it would not recognize the measure. The latest of Villavicencio’s nine books – “The Oil Holiday,” published in Marchcontends that intermediaries in Venezuela’s oil deals with China profit at the public’s expense. “Great wealth went to particular pockets,” Villavicencio told VOA. His wife promotes the books, not just because of their content but also because royalties support the couple and their three children, ages 17, 12 and 5. But the publicity also has exacted a price. “People have called our home and said if I dont shut up, they would attack our youngest kids,” Sárauz said. The family and Villavicencio’s other supporters had hoped that Ecuador’s April 2 presidential election might bring an end to what they call his “persecution.

IN WEEKS of almost daily protests, opponents of Venezuela’s authoritarian regime have found different ways to express their anger. They have held raucous banner-waving marches, a silent demonstration and a sit-in on Caracas’s main roads. At least 29 people have died since March in the worst unrest in three years. Many of these were killed by armed gangs that support the government, called colectivos . The protests persist because the government has made life intolerable: shortages of food and medicine are acute, the murder rate is probably the world’s highest and democracy has been extinguished. But all is well in the world of Nicolás Maduro, the country’s much-loathed president. While chaos engulfs Venezuela’s cities, his social-media team has been seeking to humanise the dictator with video vignettes that emphasise his homespun origins and simple wisdom.

Looking for places to hang a garden THE phraseconcrete jungle” might have been coined for São Paulo. Brazil’s megalopolis has 2.6 square metres (28 square feet) of green space for each of its 11m inhabitants, a tenth as much as New York and a fifth of what the World Health Organisation recommends. As with wealth, greenery is unequally distributed. Rich central districts, many with jardim (garden) in their names, have more trees than residents. In Itaim Paulista, on the poor eastern periphery, there is one for every 17 people. João Doria, the mayor since January, wants more foliage. In March he inaugurated the first section of what will become the world’s biggestgreen corridor”. The “vertical gardens”, sprouting from wall-mounted pockets made from felt, will stretch for 3.5km (2.2 miles) down Avenida 23 de Maio, a congested ten-lane road in the city’s centre.
