They were promised good salary food and , accommodation. It was alleged that the migrant workers were being harassed by the company officials without providing proper food and accommodation. There were also instances when the workers were assaulted by the management. Several migrants are even facing health issues due to hostile working conditions. Some migrants from Srikakulam had sent videos narrating their woes in Bahrain to their families.

I paid `1 lakh for the job, excluding travelling expenses. The company management is harassing me to work extra hours without providing proper food and accommodation.

After watching the video, I am not able to sleep. Though I tried to contact the agent, he is not responding.’’ Forget the short list, he was not even on the speculated long list to become outgoing chief minister Vijay Rupani’s successor. The BJP on Sunday pulled a rabbit out of the hat by giving the chief ministerial baton to political greenhorn Bhupendra Patel, a first-term MLA with no ministerial experience. Seen as a protégé of UP Governor Anandiben Patel, he represents her Ghatlodia seat in the Assembly. Patel, 59, later met Governor Acharya Devvrat along with Rupani to take stake his claim for the hot seat. He is also associated with a couple of Patidar outfits as well. A civil engineer by qualification and builder by profession, he will take the oath of office and secrecy on Monday . The soft-spoken, low profile Patel will now lead the state BJP to polls in 2022. “The selection of Bhupendra Patel is a master stroke of Anandiben Patel. The BJP has killed many birds with one stone. It is also to checkmate Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel because Bhupendra Patel will take oath as CM...Only the CM will be sworn in tomorrow. The new cabinet will be formed after consultation with senior leaders in a couple of days C R Paatil , BJP state president both come from the same region and are Kadva Patels, a sub-caste of the Patel community,” said senior journalist based in Gujarat, adding it will also possibly end Patidar agitations in the state. After Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and Pralhad Joshi flew in from Delhi as observers, they held a series of meetings with senior party functionaries. The matter was first discussed in the core com- mittee meeting before it was taken up at the BJP legislature party meeting. The proposal to elevate Bhupendra Patel was moved by Rupani, after which almost all lawmakers fell in line. Most of the 112 MLAs of the party in the 182-member Assembly were present at the meeting. However, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, who was in the race for chief ministership, left the meeting without making any statement, while BJP’s state unit president C R Paatil had earlier said he was not a contender for the top post. In Uttarakhand too, the BJP chose Pushkar Singh Dhami as chief minister though he had no ministerial experience. Patel will be the first-ever CM from Ahmadabad. He won the 2017 Assembly elections from Ghatlodia, defeating Congress candidate Shashikant Patel by a margin of over one lakh votes, the highest winning margin in that election. His Assembly constituency is part of the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat represented by Union minister Amit Shah. Death in 30 days of positive test to obtain Covid certificate E xp r e s s N e w s Se r vi c e @ New Delhi The demise of any person within 30 days of being detected Covid-positive at hospital or home shall be treated as Covid death irrespective of co-morbidities for issuing a death certificate, according to the latest guidelines framed by the Centre. The guidelines shared with the Supreme Court came after the court’s June 30 verdict, which had sought clear steps to simplify the norms for issuance and correction of death certificates and official documents. The certificates must state upfront the exact cause of death, that is, ‘death due to Covid’, to enable dependents to get benefits of welfare schemes, the SC had directed. To determine the benchmark, the Centre’s affidavit cited a study by Indian Council of Medical Research, which found that 95% of deaths take place within 25 days of being tested Covid positive. “To make the scope broader and more inclusive, deaths occurring within 30 days from the date of testing or from the date of being clinically determined as a COVID-19 case, will be treated as NATIONWIDE sep 11 sep 12 Fresh cases 33,376 28,591 Recoveries Deaths 32,198 34,848 308 338 statewide sep 11 sep 12 Fresh cases 1,145 Recoveries 1,090 Deaths 17 Samples tested 49,581 1,190 1,226 11 45,533 ‘deaths due to COVID-19, even if the death takes place outside the hospital/ in-patient facility .” Also, Covid cases admitted in hospital/in-patient facility who continued as the same admission beyond 30 days and later died, shall be treated as Covid deaths. “Deaths occurring due to poisoning, suicide, homicide and deaths due to accident, among others, will not be considered Covid deaths even if Covid is an accompanying condition,” the guidelines added. Those unsatisfied with the death certificate can submit a petition to a committee for issuing of the ‘Official Document for Covid Death’, the guidelines further stated. Grievance redressal A committee will be set up at the district level to deal with grievances if the next of kin of the deceased is not satisfied with the cause of death given in the certificate.

The Centre had launched the PMKISAN scheme to aid small and marginal farmers, under which beneficiaries get `6,000 per year in installments. The amount is directly credited to the beneficiaries’ bank accounts after collecting their details from the State agriculture department. Following a directive from the Centre, the agriculture de- partment is preparing a list of ineligible beneficiaries to weed them out of the scheme and recover the money paid to them for the last two years. As many as 10,560 ineligible beneficiaries of the scheme have been identified so far. Of the total, 1,407 do not have agri- culture land and they had obtained `1.75 crore. As many as 9,153 income tax payers and government employees are also found to be enjoying the benefit illegally and the total amount paid to them is put at `4,43 crore under the scheme. “We are going to open a bank account in the name of the district nodal officer to deposit the money recovered from the ineligible beneficiaries.
