Head of the Road Traffic Unit of the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing has indicated that the new Road Traffic Act, that is expected to be passed in 2013, will focus on motor vehicle tyre safety.Director of the Unit, Kenute Hare,told JIS News that the agency will continue to educate the public on the importance of tyre safety as part of efforts to further reduce the number of road fatalities.“Motorists will be required to have tyres with threads at a threshold of 1.6 millimetres,” Mr. Hare emphasised.He explained that “the groove in your tyre is there to disperse water, so if there is no groove, the water will not disperse quickly as it should and hence you will have less friction.”“In other words, your ability to stay on the road can be minimised and, hence, your ability to stop that motor vehicle in time will be difficult. So, we believe strongly that this would add some plus. Of course, we will continue to educate the population about the importance of proper tyre safety, so they are able to make proper choices within the traffic environment,” Mr. Hare added.The amended Act will also ensure that road safety issues are addressed according to 21st Century requirements. It will, among other things, deal with the use of mobile phones while driving, and also cover the use of in-car devices, such as DVD players.Once the new Act is passed, driving schools and instructors will be required to be certified by the Island Traffic Authority and adhere to an approved curriculum, which will address issues such as defensive driving.The country recorded a total of 258 road fatalities for 2012, some 49 less than the previous year, and for the first time in over a decade, achieved its ‘Below 300’ target.

New Delhi: All good things must come to an end, and that stands true for hugely popular shows like ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Big Bang Theory’, ‘Modern Family’, ‘Supernatural’ and ‘Suits’. Here are some shows that are coming to an end soon: GoT: With a storyline that paints a whimsical world of dragons and White Walkers on one hand, and stays close to reality by showing how relationships cannot be trusted when it comes to ruling a kingdom, the show, with its story based on George R.R. Martin’s novels, has become a global phenomenon.’Game of Thrones’ Season 8 will premiere internationally on April 14. Suits: The story started when a hotshot lawyer Harvey Specter (essayed Gabriel Macht) took a gamble by hiring a brilliant college dropout Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) as an associate in his law firm, and gave the audience a glimpse of the trials and tribulations of the legal world. The drama began in 2011. Supernatural: Credited as the longest-running sci-fi genre show, ‘Supernaturals’ is all about the supernatural and paranormal. It follows brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester as they join their family business of hunting down supernatural monsters. Big Bang Theory: This show’s universe originated with the story of how four nerds – react when a girl enters their life as a friendly neighbour. Other shows include ‘Modern Family’, ‘Arrow’, etc.
New Delhi: The Patliputra Lok Sabha constituency, which was created after the delimitation of 2008, is set to witness a very tight fight as Lalu Prasad’s elder daughter Misa Bharti, who was fielded as RJD candidate after rejecting the candidature of RJD’s old warhorse in 2014 election, is again in the poll arena to take on Ramkripal Yadav.The prestige of both Lalu Prasad and his son Tejashwi Yadav is at stake as Misa Bharti has been fielded against the ‘wishes’ of Tejashwi Yadav. The RJD had ‘wanted’ to field Maner MLA Bhai Virendra from the high profile Patliputra seat in 2019 polls. Though the contest is Yadav vs Yadav and the best Yadav would win the game.

Notably, Lalu Prasad had contested from Patliputra seat in 2009 when the BJP’s key ally JD(U) had ‘restricted’ incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from holding the election rallies in Bihar. In the neck to neck fight, the RJD supremo had faced unprecedented defeat by JD(U) candidate Ranjan Yadav, who had switched his side from RJD. Lalu Prasad had lost the seat by 24,000 votes, while CPI(ML) candidate Rameshwar Prasad, who had secured 36,000 votes, was at the third position. Later on, Ranjan Yadav became a member of BJP in 2015.

As like Lalu Prasad, Bharti too failed to wrest the seat and lost it to BJP’s Ramkripal Yadav, who had started his political career under the tutelage of Lalu Prasad. Bharti, who faced the defeat by a margin of 40,332 votes, had scored 3,42,940 votes, while BJP nominee Ramkripal Yadav had scored 3,83,262 votes out of the total 9,78,649 votes polled in 2014. According to political experts, the contest is going to be very close as Yadav voters are now stand divided. “Given that both the leaders represent the same community, the best candidate would make it to the final. The circumstances for Misa Bharti have become little favourable in comparison to 2014,” the expert said, adding that during the 2014 polls the sympathy of Yadavs was with Ramkripal as he was being ‘ditched’ by Lalu Prasad. “The situation is all different in 2019 polls as voters of the area are now counting the development works being done by sitting MPs for the community. Voters are judging both the leaders on the parameters of their performance,” the expert said, adding that the contest is all about who has done what in the last 5 years for the area and the community. It’s worth mentioning that Misa Bharti was elected unopposed to Rajya Sabha in June 2016. The Patliputra Lok Sabha constituency has six assembly seats — Danapur, Maner, Phulwari (SC), Masaurhi (SC), Paliganj and Bikram. There are about 5 lakh Yadavs, 3 lakh Bhumihars and 4 lakh Kurmi voters in the parliamentary constituency which has about 16.5 lakh voters. Prior to delimitation, Patna was the Bihar’s capital seat which was divided into two Lok Sabha seats – Patliputra and Patna Sahib. Patliputra comprises of rural areas while Patna Sahib comprises of mostly urban areas.
