BSF, police lookout for 2 infiltrators in Kutch Friday, June 29, 2001

The Times of India News Service
BHUJ, June 28: The BSF and the district police are on the lookout for two infiltrators whose footprints were noticed in the Rann of Kutch near Khavda on Thursday.

A spokesman of the BST intelligence wing said an alert had been sounded in the neighbouring villages of Nirwand and Dhoravar. The footprints showed the duo had entered Kutch from Vingi in Pakistan. Though the footprints led to some villages, the police lost track because of water-logging in some parts of the Rann.

BSF officers were confident that they would be able to nab the infiltrators shortly. The matter is being taken seriously in the wake of the arrest of an infiltrator carrying an AK-56 rifle in Kutch on the eve of Prime Minister Vajpayee's visit earlier this month.

Women BJP corporators storm into mayor's office Friday, June 29, 2001

The Times of India News Service
AHMEDABAD, June 28: Women BJP corporators of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation stormed into the mayor's office on Wednesday protesting against presence of ill-mannered men inside the room meant for female corporators and office-bearers of AMC.

Shouting slogans at the top of their voices, about 35 women corporators sporting saffron-hued BJP bandanas around their neck earlier expressed their displeasure on not finding Patel in his room. However, the day was saved and matters calmed down when Patel reappeared and gave the agitators a patient hearing.

The agitators who were led by former mayor Bhavnaben Dave alleged, "Men often barged into the women corporators' room in AMC. They smoke cigarettes and pass snide remarks at women present in the room. It is the duty of the mayor and the municipal commissioner to ensure safety of women in the corporation."

Dave added, "Recently a woman BJP corporator and former deputy mayor Manjulaben Patadia were severely beaten up by the Congress corporators when they had ransacked the Opposition party's room and their leader's chamber in AMC on June 8. This again proves the lack of security inside AMC premises."

The mayor while addressing the media rebutted: "I have to call upon the commissioner of police to arrange for my own security inside AMC. It is impossible to provide personal guards for everybody. The BJP has run out of issues and thus are taking up such pretexts to create trouble. Why else would somebody protest an incident that took place on June 8 nearly 20 days later ?"
