New Delhi, Jan 8: The Supreme Court has issued notices to the West Bengal government on a petition filed by the BJP challenging the decision not to allow it to hold yatras in the state.
There army veterans have decided to intensify their protest. A mega rally will be held on September 12 to protest over the one rank one pension. issue. The protest rally demanding the early implementation of OROP and also seeking the government to fulfil all their demands will be held in New Delhi.
The decision to intensify the protest comes despite the government assuring that OROP will be announced in the next 48 hours. The RSS at the coordination meeting with the BJP also raised this issue. The RSS said that the OROP issue must be resolved immediately as it is hurting the image of the government.

The Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill 2010, that sought to make divorce easier, has always been in news. And one of the major reasons why this bill was in discussion was because of property-division clause which sought to transfer more than 50% of husband’s property to wife in the event of a divorce.
And this radical proposition was made on the basis of claims made by feminists which said, “Studies have shown that in 80% cases women are rendered homeless after divorce.” This news was carried by the Times of India. In order to confirm the news, I sent an application to the Right to Information Act (RTI) to the Ministry of Law and Justice asking the following information for the last 10 years from 2002 – 2012.

Expose: Women and Child Ministry is desperately trying to get an anti-male extortionary bill passed despite severe opposition from the country regarding the same.
Men’s Rights Organizations, representing more than 50% of the population of the country have already highlighted the unconstitutional nature of the proposed bill for sexual harassment at workplace.
- Based on presentations made by men’s rights organizations, The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resources Development had also recommended that the law should be made gender neutral and men must be provided protection, at par with women.
- We fail to understand the problem in making the law gender neutral, for, if women don’t harass men, then there would be no complaints filed against them or very less complaints filed against them.
- There are already so many sections in the IPC that cater to sexual harassment and indecent representation of women. But this law is not being made to provide justice. It is being created just to make another channel of extortion from men by blackmailing them.
- It is ironical that the Government of India is ready to provide protection to men from sexual assault but not from sexual harassment.
