Similarly, respect for territorial integrity and non-interference in internal affairs cannot be exercises in cherry picking. When reality departs from rhetoric, we must have the courage to call it out. Without genuine solidarity there can never be real , trust. This is very much the sentiment of the Global South,’’ said Jaishankar in his address at the annual UN General Assembly session in New York. His remarks were also seen in the context of cross-border terrorism from Pakistan and the stand-off with China in the Ladakh area. “We often advocate the promotion of a rules-based order. From time to time, respect for poll fever YSRC leaders cautioned against laxity E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @ Vijayawada With elections less than a year away Chief Minister YS Jagan , Mohan Reddy on Tuesday motivated MLAs, MLCs, regional coordinators and party incharges to pull up their socks and work towards widely publicising the government’s flagship programmes. Jagan was speaking during a meeting to review the performance of elected representatives in the Gadapa Gadapaku Mana Prabhutvam programme. Cautioning the party members against taking a lackadaisical approach after working so hard till now, the Chief Minister stressed that they should take advantage of the situation on the field to romp home in the State. He asked them to work vigorously towards creating awareness among people about Jagananna Aarogya Suraksha, a 45-day programme that will commence on September 30. He also instructed the leaders to explain to the people why they need Jagan government in the State. “There is going to be a world of difference between what we have done so far through our mass outreach initiatives and what we will do in the next six months in the run up to the P6 polls,” he said.

The minister began his address with a Bharat pitch - ‘Namaste from Bharat’ - just as the name board before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s seat at the recent G20 summit at Delhi said Bharat. While concluding his 17-minute address, he again invoked Bharat. Prodding the UN to reform its Security Council, he recalled India’s initiative at the G20 meet to admit the African Union as its permanent member. “By doing so, we gave voice to an entire continent which has long been its due. This significant step in reform should inspire the United Nations, a much older organisation, to also make the Security Council contemporary. Broad representative is after all, a pre-requisite for both effectiveness and credibility,’’ Jaishankar said. Hailing the G20 Summit as successful, Jaishankar said the country began its G20 Presidency with the Voice of the Global South Summit. It enabled India to hear directly from 125 nations and place their concerns on the G20 agenda. “At a time when East-West polarisation is so sharp and North-South divide so deep, the New Delhi G20 Summit affirmed that diplomacy and dialogue are the only effective solutions. The inter national order is diverse and we must cater for divergences, if not differences. The days when a few nations set the agenda and expected others to fall in line are over,’’ the minister said.

Multiple riders had to knock on the doors of the Delhi High Court to get the justice they sought. But this squad never let the doubts affect their position. They were 100% sure that they would be representing the country in Hangzhou and ‘all of us were on the same page because of the common goals we share’ | P13 Europe, the common link Two riders—Anush Agarwalla and Hriday Chheda— have chance of winning an individual dressage medal on Thursday. Divyakriti Singh and Sudipti Hajela complete the quartet. Most of them left India to train in Europe before the age of 20. Even within Europe, at least two of them have had training in Germany, a sort of mecca for riders who specialise in dressage. What is dressage?

A bench of judges S K Kaul and Sudhanshu Dhulia asked Attorney General R Venkataramani to get the government’s view on this, adding it would take up the issue every 10 days till some progress is made. “There were 80 recommendations pending until last week when 10 names were cleared. Now, the figure is 70, of which 26 recommendations are of transfer of judges, seven are reiterations, nine are pending without being returned to the collegium, and one case is of appointment of the Chief Justice to a sensitive high court,” the bench said. It added that the delay leads to loss of talent for the judiciary because candidates withdraw their consent. “I thought of saying a lot, but since the attor ney general is only seeking seven days time, I’m hold- ing myself. Today I am quiet... , The next time I will not be quiet. Use your good office to see these issues are resolved,” Justice Kaul told Venkataramani. The observation came during the hearing of a petition filed by Advocates Association of Bengaluru seeking contempt action against the Union Ministry of Law and Justice for not adhering to the timeline set by the court in a 2021 judgment.
