plastic surgeries in the world this year Oftenits just about looking better and feeling better But we cannot ignore the roles played by a greater spending capacity amongst Indians as well as far better medical facilities that are available now There are enough people who surgically change themselves not because they have a need or an urge tobut just because the choice is available to themand

| Published: October 17 2016 5:13 am South African President Jacob Zuma (AP Photo) Top News South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has revealed in a court affidavit distributed by the Treasury on Sunday that 68 billion rand ($490 million) in payments made by wealthy brothers Ajay Atul and Rajesh Gupta companies they control and other individuals with the same surname have been reported to authorities as suspicious since 2012 The three Indian-born businessmen are the subject of an official investigation into allegations that they have had undue influence over President Jacob Zuma The payments in question whose destinations were not disclosed in the document provided by Gordhan were ascribed to the three brothers their nephew Varun Gupta numerous companies that they control as well as other individuals named as Chetali Gupta Shivani Gupta and Arti Gupta Reuters could not establish whether all these individuals were members of the same family Gordhan’s court submission caps a week of high drama in which he was charged with fraud by approving early retirement for a deputy commissioner in 2010 while Gordhan was head of the tax agency and re-hiring him as a consultant – a charge that Gordhan said was politically motivated Gordhan has for months been at odds with Zuma not least over the alleged political influence of the Gupta brothers but is looked to by edgy financial markets as a guarantor of stability Gordhan’s submission dated Oct 13 is a request to the High Court in Pretoria for a declaratory judgment that he cannot interfere with decisions by South Africa’s major banks to cut their ties with businesses owned by the Gupta brothers Gordhan’s submission had the effect of airing what he considered to be evidence supporting his concerns about the Gupta brothers’ political influence The Gupta brothers are close to Zuma and the subject of a just-finished report by the outgoing Public Protector a constitutionally-mandated anti-graft official into allegations that they influenced the appointment of ministers It was prevented from being made public on Friday by Zuma’s application to the High Court to delay its release Zuma has denied granting undue influence to the brothers and they have denied seeking it Nevertheless they said in August that they planned to exit all of their South African investments Several banks and companies have cut ties this year with the Gupta brothers’ investment vehicle Oakbay Investments without publicly disclosing their reasons They included South Africa’s top four banks: Standard Bank Nedbank Barclays Africa’s Absa and First National Bank (FNB) part of FirstRand REQUEST TO INTERVENE Gordhan says in his 96-page submission to the court that Oakbay “demanded that on behalf of the government I intervene with the banks to achieve a reversal of their decision” Gordhan supported his assertion by attaching correspondence between himself and Nazeem Howa the chief executive of Oakbay Investments although the letters viewed by Reuters did not appear to provide evidence of undue pressure Neither Howa nor the Treasury responded to requests for comment by phone and email and an Oakbay spokesperson said the firm would not comment on the issue A lawyer representing the Gupta family did not respond to an email seeking comment However on Sunday the Oakbay-controlled ANN7 television news network cited unnamed Oakbay sources as rejecting allegations of wrongdoing In one of the attached letters Howa said that 7500 jobs were at risk as the company could not function without the support of local banks “Given your strong relationship with the captains of industry I implore you help us save the jobs … I look forward to hearing from you about any possible assistance you are able to offer” Howa wrote in the letter dated April 17 2016 In another letter dated May 24 Howa said “we seem to have no options open to us other than our appeal to you for assistance” Gordhan also included in his affidavit advice from his lawyers stating that no minister nor the cabinet as a whole had “any power to intervene in the banker-client relationship” The affidavit includes a report from the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) a government anti-money-laundering agency listing 52 payments worth a total of 68 billion rand that were reported to the FIC between 2012 and 2016 presumably by the banks entrusted with them It also included 20 cases of “multiple transactions” with no amounts specified The FIC requires banks to notify it of transactions that appear potentially improper It says the transactions were “reported or sent to the centre in terms of Section 29” of the FIC Act which deals with transactions regarded as “suspicious and unusual” “SERIOUS STATE OF AFFAIRS” Gordhan’s affidavit says that the FIC report “reflects the increasingly serious state of affairs which has arisen” adding: “This is illustrated by the number and scale of reported transactions linked to Oakbay” The FIC report did not say why the transactions were regarded as suspicious and did not disclose who reported them or to whom they were directed Nor did it say whether any had eventually been found to be improper Reuters was unable to independently confirm any details about the transactions A spokesman for Standard Bank said on Saturday that the bank could not comment and the three other major banks did not respond to requests for comment The FIC also did not respond to a request for comment Although the Gupta brothers’ relationship with Zuma has been a source of controversy for years it burst into the open in March when Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas said in a statement that he had been offered his previous boss’s job as finance minister by unnamed members of the Gupta family Gordhan who had been finance minister from 2009 to 2014 was put back in the job in December after Zuma sacked Nhlanhla Nene and replaced him with the little-known backbencher Des van Rooyen triggering a crash in the rand currency and sending banking shares sharply lower The Gupta family issued an emphatic denial of Jonas’s allegation at the time Zuma told parliament in March that he was not the right man to question on the allegations “If Jonas says he was offered by the Guptas I think you will be well-placed to ask the Guptas or Jonas Don’t ask me Where do I come in” he said “I never offered Jonas the ministry That’s why he is the deputy minister” For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | Peshawar |

"There’s no mention of ‘K’ issue in the Ufa agreement", BJP spokesman Siddharth Nath Singh said referring to the joint statement issued after the Modi-Nawaz Sharif meeting in the Russian city of Ufa True but if he were listening Singh would have noticed that Pakistanis were quick to spot the omission and have since been shouting from rooftops that Kashmir is very much up for discussion Here’s what the good old Sartaj Aziz Pakistan government’s hardliner adviser on national security and foreign affairs who will be Ajit Doval’s main interlocutor said “No dialogue will take place with India unless Kashmir issue is included in the agenda” Not only that He made clear that Pakistan would “continue to extend political moral and diplomatic support to our Kashmiri brethren” And that Pakistan would also raise its “deep” concerns over “Indian interference in Pakistan including continuing support for insurgency in Balochistan” Aziz is not the only one His tough talk has been echoed by other Pakistani worthies without any attempt by India to challenge them Hasn’t anyone at PMO or the Foreign Office been tracking the rhetoric from the other side If the answer is yes then what’s the basis for insisting that the talks would be restricted to only Indian concerns And what does it propose to do if Pakistan does what Aziz is saying Will the Indian side walk out when Aziz raises the Kashmirissue As Sibal asked "Are we going to ask him to leave the room" The Congress has of course gleefully waded into the row accusing the BJP of doublespeak; and to be fair its position is wholly understandable No doubt the party is being shamelessly opportunistic and revelling in the government’s discomfiture But why not For years it has been portrayed by the BJP as the appeaser-in-chief-of Pakistan and accused of acting against national interests by talking to it Now it is the Congress turn to get its own back on the BJP It is its big schadenfreude moment But what about the BJP Or more specifically the Modi government because many even within the BJP are not comfortable with its free-wheeling blow-hot-blow-cold approach What is the Modi sarkar up to Indeed does it even know what it is doing veering from one extreme to another For all its sins the Congress knew and was consistent Its policy –flawed or otherwise–was to deal with Pakistan by engaging with it Sometimes it worked; sometimes it didn’t But that’s what diplomacy is about You take chances You win some you lose some The problem with this government is that it doesn’t have a coherent or clearly thought out Pakistan policy and is making things up on the hoof depending on its political convenience All fire and brimstone when needing to arouse nationalist sentiments to win votes; and go all friendly when wanting to be seen as statesmanlike But apart from the fact that people have now come to see through its tactics such flip-flop doesn’t advance India’s cause– and actually damages its credibility This is the warning Modi would get if he were to consult with his seasoned diplomats but sadly under him the foreign office has been completely sidelined and the whole show is being driven by the PM and Doval’s team By all means go ahead with the talks—but not as a one-off stunt It must form part of a long-term strategy not driven by short-term party political interests But a lack of vision and clarity is typical of this government across the policy spectrum as pointed out by Pratap Bhanu Mehta in a withering piece in Indian Express (7 August) “Instead of clarity there is confusion” he wrote And

strongly-worded defence of the Human Resource Development Ministry which she heads for its handling of the protests at the Jawaharlal Nehru University As with most heated exchanges of words in Parliament a lot was said on the floor of the House which was not permitted to go on record as per the existing rules of procedure But while there was much expunging that took place there were questions over whether political decisions had a part to play in which words got out of the records A report in The Indian Express pointed out that while references to the RSS Delhi MLA OP Sharma were expunged the references to JNU students who have been accused of sedition remained on record Section 352 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business for the Lok Sabha deals with regulations on what cannot be said on the floor of the House Members are disallowed from making a personal reference while making an allegation against another member of the House which can explain the decision to expunge the references to Rahul Gandhi Arvind Kejriwal and OP Sharma However it was not clear why the reference to the RSS which is not (officially) a political organisation was removed Smriti Irani File photo PTI On the other hand the rules specifically state that members should not ‘refer to any matter of fact on which a judicial decision is pending’ With not even a chargesheet having been filed as yet against the JNU students the case would appear to fall squarely within this restriction In fact even Home Minister Rajnath Singh speaking in Parliament later in the day said that Further section 353 says "No allegation of a defamatory or incriminatory nature shall be made by a member against any person unless the member has given adequate advance notice to the Speaker and also to the Minister concerned so that the Minister may be able to make an investigation into the matter for the purpose of a reply" The official spokesperson for the Lok Sabha secretariat was quoted as saying by Catch News as the students were named as the ‘context in which the minister listed their names’ was relevant On the other hand the word RSS was said to have been expunged because of its ‘context’ and not the word per se However the rules of procedure do not make any exception of ‘relevant context’ allowing names to be mentioned in pending judicial cases Another comment by Smriti Irani during his speech during a reference to Rohith Vemula’s death has come under controversy after questions of factual accuracy were raised Smriti Irani had claimed that a doctor had not been allowed near Rohith’s body and that there had been no attempt to revive him Reacting to her speech the chief medical officer had said that she was called in moments after Rohith was found and that he had been dead for at

U-19 age-groups and form the nucleus of a squad which it hopes is good enough to represent India in the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2019 and the 2024 Olympic Games The All India Football Federation’s technical committee met in Bengaluru to discuss the development plan for Indian football beyond the FIFA U-17 World Cup which will be held in the country from October 6 to 28 “The idea is to have the best players from the U-17 World Cup team and the U-19 play the AFC U-19 Championship qualifiers and then the main event in 2018 eventually preparing them for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2019 and the

be managed by the AIFF” The technical committee felt that the team composed of the young talents should be given the best possible training and competitive environment including “participation in the I-League for season 2017-18” The technical committee also proposed to develop and groom Indian coaches and requested the technical director to come up with a detailed plan Vice-chairman of the
