ASA Supports Iowas Tom Vilsack as US Secretary of Agriculture

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) today applauded the nomination of former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack as the nation’s 30th Secretary of Agriculture. Vilsack is the first Iowan chosen for the key Cabinet post since Henry A. Wallace, a noted farm editor and agriculturalist, was named to the post in 1933.”ASA is delighted with President-Elect Obama’s choice of Governor Vilsack,” said ASA Chairman John Hoffman, a soybean producer from Waterloo, Iowa. “As Governor, he was an early and strong advocate for renewable fuels, including soy biodiesel, as well as biotechnology, which is so important to modern agriculture.”Hoffman points out that Governor Vilsack is very knowledgeable about agriculture, including the role that farm programs play in the livelihoods of producers of soybeans and other commodities. Hoffman and the leadership of the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) worked closely with Governor Vilsack during his eight years as chief executive of one of the nation’s leading agricultural states.”Coming from an ag state that is number one in soybeans, corn, pork, turkey and egg production, Tom Vilsack recognizes the importance of agriculture on the U.S. economy,” Hoffman said. “As ISA President, I met with Governor Vilsack numerous times and found him to be responsive to the concerns of soybean farmers, and I fully expect as Secretary of Agriculture he will be an excellent spokesperson for U.S. agriculture.”As Iowa governor, Vilsack worked to balance the competing needs of high-tech agriculture with environmental and consumer interests. He was co-founder of the Governors Biotechnology Partnership, and a strong supporter of renewable fuels mandates and their importance to the economic viability of rural America. Vilsack participated in missions with ISA leaders promoting exports of Iowa ag products. Hoffman said Vilsack understands the value of ag exports and believes he will be a strong advocate for fair trade agreements within Obama Administration.”Tom Vilsack understands the importance of NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) programs that help producers protect our natural resources and provide stewardship of the land we all depend upon for our food production,” Hoffman said. “As governor, he was very supportive of ISA environmental and conservation initiatives, and saw the value of biotechnology and its importance in meeting future demands while protecting our natural resources.”ASA points out that Vilsack’s familiarity with the diversity of Iowa agriculture will serve him well in his new role as Secretary of Agriculture. He was especially supportive of bringing young and beginning farmers into production agriculture.Vilsack entered politics in the small rural town of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, where he was elected to the town council. After serving as mayor from 1987-1992, he was elected to the state senate, and then served as Governor 1999-2007. He was one of Iowa’s most popular governors, and made a brief run for the Democratic nomination for President after leaving office in 2007.ASA joins other commodity organizations in calling for the U.S. Senate to swiftly confirm Governor Vilsack when his name is officially submitted in January.last_img read more

Budget 2016 MPs want income tax exemption limit for individuals to be

first_imgMembers of the consultative committee attached to the union finance ministry have suggested something that would cheer millions of middle-class Indians. They want Arun Jaitley to raise the income tax exemption limit for individuals to Rs 4 lakh per annum from the current Rs 2.5 lakh.The suggestion came during the first meeting of the committee on Friday in New Delhi, an official release said.There are about 2.5 crore individual tax payers in India.In his address, Finance Minister Jaitley spoke about fiscal deficit being kept under control, despite a rise in government spending and the need for higher allocation in FY2017 owing to the implementation of the proposals of the 7th Central Pay Commission and One Rank One Pension scheme for ex-servicemen.They also suggested the finance minister to raise the limit for mandatorily quoting permanent card number (PAN) for transactions to Rs 5 lakh from Rs 2 lakh. The Modi government had stipulated the threshold as Rs 2 lakh in a notification on 15 December, 2015. The decision marked an increase of Rs 1 lakh fixed by the government during the presentation of the Union Budget 2015, on the recommendations of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Black Money. The hike in December 2015 to Rs 2 lakh was a response to representations from various people and organisations that such a low threshold entailed challenges of compliance.The members of the committee also asked Jaitley to consider raising the service tax exemption limit to Rs 25 lakh from the current Rs 10 lakh.Other suggestionsIncrease allocation for the agriculture sectorRevamp MGNREGA and increase the scope for job opportunities in rural areasWiden tax base, punish tax evadersChannel CSR funds to companies’ operational zonesGive tax exemptions to MSMEsThe Union Budget for FY2017 (Budget 2016) will be presented by Jaitley on 29 February, three days before the presentation of pre-budget Economic Survey. The Railway Budget will be presented on 25 February.Those who participated in the meeting included Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister; Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Finance; members of the committee comprising Dilip Kumar Mansukhlal Gandhi, J. Jayasingh Thyagraj Natterjee, P.P. Chaudhary, Poonam Mahajan, Shri Ram Charitra Nishad, Sharad Kumar Maruti Bansode, Subhash Chandra, Supriya Sadanand Sule, Udit Raj (Lok Sabha members), Anil Desai, K.P.

Cardin Frosh Squabble Braveboy Focuses on Issues

first_imgThe acrimony between Del. Jon Cardin, D-District 11, and Sen. Brian Frosh, D-District 16, escalated during the June 9 attorney general’s debate at the University of Baltimore, while Del. Aisha Braveboy, D-District 25, mostly stayed above the fray and focused on the issues.From the opening moments of the forum at the school’s John and Frances Angelos Law Center, Frosh went in on Cardin about the widely reported assertion that the delegate missed 75 percent of his committee votes during the most recent legislative session. “I will show up to work hard for you every day,” Frosh said. “That’s in sharp contrast to Jon Cardin.” Cardin shot back at Frosh about anti-child predator legislation, votes from which Frosh allegedly abstained. “Why do you duck these votes?” Cardin asked.The first official question of the evening came from the AFRO’s Roberto Alejandro, one of three journalists selected to query the candidates. Alejandro asked them to explain how their experiences in the Legislature and as attorneys would inform their decisions in the attorney general’s office.“I’m the only attorney here who has stepped up on a pro bono basis and helped families facing foreclosure,” Braveboy said. “I practice what I preach; I practice what I legislate,” she added.The issue of the candidates’ priorities sparked more fireworks between Frosh and Cardin. The Baltimore County delegate took aim at Frosh over a proposal to automate the state’s bail review system, suggesting his Montgomery County colleague would allow robots to determine people’s freedom. “That’s a comic book answer to a complex issue,” Frosh fired back.Meanwhile, Braveboy brought up the issue of state healthcare providers gaming Maryland’s newly implemented and troubled version of the Affordable Care Act and the importance of the attorney general’s office in protecting consumers. She also stated – as she has throughout her candidacy – her opposition to the state’s position on the HBCU discrimination lawsuit.“The state of Maryland has been defiant and arrogant in its treatment of Black colleges,” Braveboy said. Later during the forum, in response to a specific question about the plight of the state’s HBCUs and the segregative effects of duplication, Braveboy referenced a conversation she had with Gov. Martin O’Malley.“Mr. Governor, the state is wrong here, we’re going to lose this lawsuit,” Braveboy recalled saying.The Prince George’s County delegate and attorney also suggested the skirmishing between Frosh and Cardin obscured the important issues the next attorney general faces. “I think the people of this state deserve a discussion on substantive issues,” Braveboy said.The contentiousness between Frosh and Cardin was perhaps exacerbated by a new poll released the day of the University of Baltimore debate by The Baltimore Sun. According to the poll, Cardin leads Frosh 26 percent to 16 percent with Braveboy getting 7 percent of the vote. However, an eye-opening 42 percent of voters were undecided with less than two weeks left before the primary election on June 24.The issue of human trafficking was injected by Braveboy who wore a blazer anointed with a teal blue ribbon she said symbolized a stand against human trafficking and sexual abuse. The issue was brought to light in the attorney general’s race last week when Cardin was endorsed by Baltimore-based rapper “Ski Money,” who has been charged with human trafficking. After listing his numerous high-profile endorsements, Frosh took another jab at Cardin. “You’ve been endorsed by Mr. Ski Money,” Frosh quipped.last_img read more

Veteran Moves Battlefield to Ice Rink

first_imgRetired Army Sgt. Kevin Gatson, left and his team mates play a game called sled hockey. (Courtesy Photo)WASHINGTON — Nearly five years after losing his left leg, index finger and thumb in combat, retired Army Sgt. Kevin Gatson is still a warrior, but his field of battle has changed.It once was Afghanistan.  Now it is a hockey rink.Gatson, a member of the Army for over 17 years, is a member USA Warriors, an ice hockey team made up of disabled veterans.   Gaston and his teammates play a game called sled hockey, in which players sit on a sled instead of skating.Like regular hockey players, they wear shoulder pads, helmets and face masks.   But instead of a long hockey stick, each carried two shorter versions, one in each hand. At one end of each stick is a version of a regular ice hockey blade.At the other are metal “picks” that bite into the ice and allow players to propel themselves across the ice with surprising speed.The team has been around for six years, and offers players a chance to forget about their wounds and injuries for a while. The team is funded by donations and travels the Northeast playing other teams of players with various disabilities.There are several adaptive sports teams designed to help disabled veterans, in particular, with coping and recovery.  The teams provide an outlet and an environment that helps veterans make a smooth transition into life outside of the war zone.“I personally did not need the team for coping purposes,” said Gatson, who lives in Bethesda, Md.  “My injuries never really bothered me.  I came from a good family and I have faith in God. I knew that I was still alive, and that’s all that really mattered to me.“But I can definitely see how it can be that for others.” many disabled, returning veterans are not as fortunate.Many struggle with depression, PTSD and adapting back into society. Sports programs for disabled veterans include basketball, baseball, skiing, sailing and golf.  One private program, Warfighters Sports, says it has enrolled 8,200 veterans.The Department of Veterans Administrations has a broad array of winter and spring programs for veterans.  To learn more, click here.Gatson, was on patrol with his unit in Afghanistan in 2010 when a bomb the military calls an improvised explosive device, or IED, exploded, severely injuring him and other members of his team.Doctors amputated his left leg,  and his right was also in jeopardy.“They wanted to amputate my right leg too, but I told them I was keeping it, and I still have it,” Gatson said.After several surgeries, a frame-like device known as an external fixator was placed on his right leg to stabilize the bones, thus allowing Gatson to retain his leg. Although he was able to keep his leg, he lost his ability to play sports, because doctors said that the risk of further injury to his leg was too high.“There were several sports teams I wanted to try, but I kept getting told no because of the frame,” he explained.After a year with the frame, Gatson was told about a hockey clinic where other disabled veterans learned to play hockey. That brought Gatson to the ice hockey program.Hockey was the first team to allow Gatson to participate, but it was far from the Mississippi native’s go-to sport.“When I first heard about the clinic, it wasn’t something I was into,” he said.  “but I thought I’d give it a shot. Once I tried it, I found it to be something I liked.” he said.Many like Gatson, crave a team environment. Gatson joined the hockey team because to him, it provided an environment similar to that of a military unit.“You’re a part of a team when you’re in the military and in the rink it’s the same thing. There’s a mission and you need a team to accomplish that mission, or else you probably won’t succeed.”last_img read more

Local Entrepreneur Takes Sports Industry by Storm

first_imgChanelle Blackwell founded public relations firm CPBlack Media. (Courtesy photo)When Chanelle Blackwell of Stafford County, Va. finished Virginia Tech in May 2007, she said she wanted to practice law. So she moved to D.C. after college and went to American University Washington College of Law.“It was kind of an interesting journey,” she told the AFRO. “I knew I wanted to go to law school but in the back of my mind I wondered if I would go into the entertainment and sports space.”Fast forward to her first internship with the Montgomery County Attorney’s Office, where Blackwell , 31, realized she did not want to litigate or even be an attorney. “Intuitively, I knew that if I didn’t like doing this as an internship, then maybe I need to go a different direction,” she said.Blackwell continued with law school but began weighing her options. Her career interest peaked when her brother Demetrius Taylor, a football player at Virginia Tech, graduated in 2010, and was picked as a free agent for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Blackwell said the NFL reignited her interest in being involved in sports and entertainment.Through her brother and the university’s alumni, she was able to secure highly-sought after internships with Octagon, a sports agency in Tysons Corner, and the Washington football team. “A lot of it was glamorous, like exactly what you thought it was and a lot of other parts were very educational in terms of me really understanding the culture,” Blackwell said. “It gave me knowledge that was going to be useful later.”In 2012, she graduated from law school and had difficulty finding suitable positions in sports and entertainment. “I didn’t feel valued,” she said. “I was overlooked and I absolutely was passed up for promotions and positions that I felt I had earned and deserved.”After working for a couple of nonprofits in D.C, Blackwell knew it was time to live out her dream. She founded CPBlack Media, an independent public relations firm that prides itself on giving a “boutique feel with big-firm results.”Although she is not licensed nor practices law, she said still has her Juris Doctorate to fall back on. “I feel like I am a little more versatile because I can also tell my clients about the legal implications of what they are doing,” she said.Blackwell’s clientele have included Washington’s wide receiver Pierre Garcon and Buffalo Bills’ quarterback Tyrod Taylor. She has also provided services for NFL agents, local musicians, and politicians.D.C. Council At-Large candidate Robert White hired Blackwell as his communications director for his first run in 2014. “Chanelle worked with our strong volunteer organization to help build our communications program, he told the AFRO July 20. “Her energy and entrepreneurial spirit filled a large hole in our campaign. We didn’t win that race, but Chanelle became a good friend and joined us again in 2016 when we won the democratic primary against a long-time, well-heeled incumbent.”Sherell Rowe, a local independent R&B artist, said she met Chanelle through mutual friends. Blackwell has helped Rowe to book a number of events throughout the city. “She’s definitely another mouthpiece for me,” she said. “She’s like a pit bull in a skirt. She believes in me, which I absolutely appreciated. She does an excellent job.”last_img read more

PC classic Myst will be a TV series

first_imgThe Myst franchise is one of those things that you either fell in love with immediately, losing days at a time to the puzzles contained within the various worlds, or you just never really liked it. For many, Myst was a welcomed escape from the dozens of FPS titles and RTS rehashes that dominated PC gaming at time by offering a non-violent and visually stunning (for the time) experience. If you’ve ever wondered what the world of Myst might look like in a different medium, it looks like you’ll soon find out.Can the number one game of the 20th century translate to television? That’s what the folks at Legendary want to find out, and Rand Miller himself has given his blessing. Cyan Worlds and Legendary will be teaming up to create a transmedia experience set in the Myst universe. Legendary has a history of delivering fantastic experiences that extend beyond the screen, as we’ve seen with Man of Steel and the recent efforts with Guillermo Del Toro.Stepping into a Linking Book wouldn’t be an entirely new experience for Legendary, and with guidance from Cyan it’s more than likely this is something that would do right by the fans.It’s likely there won’t be too much in the way of concrete details on this television show for a little while, but the new is more than enough to make you want to try installing Myst or Riven on your now dramatically more powerful computer to see how the game has aged. Better yet, you can play the original on mobile devices now, which should easily keep you busy until we hear more about this experience.Now read: Myst hits the App Storelast_img read more

ExistingHome Sales Expected to See Improvement in December

first_imgExisting-Home Sales Expected to See Improvement in December A new forecast of existing-home sales for the month of December has projected activity rising but still finishing the year on a low note after a weaker than expected November.In its latest Nowcast projections, online real estate auction company Auction.com calls for pre-owned home sales to fall between seasonally adjusted annual rates of 4.79 and 5.18 million for December, with a targeted number of 4.98 million.The company’s forecast comes just one day after the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that existing-home sales in November were at an adjusted annual rate of 4.93 million, 6.1 percent down from October and well below Auction.com’s forecast of 5.25 million.Peter Muoio, chief economist for Auction.com, explained that outside influences were responsible for dragging home sales down past the lower scope of the company’s range.”This apparently anomaly required a closer look at possible outside factors that the [Nowcast] model wasn’t able to account for, such as a slowdown in purchases late in the month due to inclement weather, or the potential for November predictions to be skewed somewhat by the unexpectedly strong momentum coming out of October,” Muoio said.NAR cited a number of factors in November’s decline, including tightening inventory, diminishing investor activity, and rising home values pushing more and more properties out of homebuyers’ reach. Auction.com EVP Rick Sharga pointed to many of the same issues, also bringing up unexpectedly harsh weather conditions in the Midwest and Northeast.”In a month where consensus forecasts were all too optimistic, we are reminded that the housing market is recovering in fits and starts, and there remain significant headwinds,” Sharga said.As the housing market prepares for what 2015 might bring, Auction.com’s research department says strengthening first-time homebuyer numbers and increasing household formations will help normalize demand among non-investors.Meanwhile, continued strengthening in the labor market “suggests a firmer basis for demand heading into 2015, while lower mortgage rates and ongoing initiatives to improve mortgage accessibility could motivate more prospective buyers to enter the market,” the company said.If Auction.com’s forecast holds out, December sales will come in 2.2 percent above year-end 2013, marking the third straight month of annual improvement.

OneWest Settles Reverse Mortgage Litigation

first_img May 16, 2017 861 Views Financial Freedom Lawsuit onewest 2017-05-16 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market OneWest Settles Reverse Mortgage Litigationcenter_img Financial Freedom, a division of OneWest Bank agreed to a settlement of over $89 million on Tuesday, resolving allegations from the Department of Justice that the accusing the company of violating the False Claims Act and the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 in connection with its participation in a federally insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgages  or “reverse mortgage” program.“The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that those who participate in federal mortgage insurance programs comply with requirements essential to the success of its programs,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Chad A. Readler of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “Among these requirements are the deadlines imposed by the Federal Housing Administration on those who service government insured mortgages. Those deadlines are designed to protect the government’s collateral and stop the unnecessary loss of government funds and resources.”Reverse mortgage loans allow homeowners aged 62 and older to borrow money against the equity they have in their homes. The Federal Housing administration protects lenders from loss from reverse mortgages by providing mortgage insurance which means when the home is sold or vacant for over 12 months, or upon the death of the homeowner, a loan becomes due and payable and the lender is repaid the amount of the loan.The United states had alleged that Financial Freedom had not properly disclosed on the insurance claims forms it filed with the FHA that the mortgagee was not eligible for such interest payments because it had failed to meet various deadlines relating to appraisal of the property, submission of claims to HUD, and pursuit of foreclosure proceedings. Despite this, had sought to obtain insurance payments from insurance.This led to the mortgagees serviced by Financial Freedom allegedly obtaining additional interest which the Department of Justice states that they were not entitled to receive.“Today’s settlement agreement resolves allegations that this lender failed to comply with FHA servicing requirements and sought to receive financial gains that it was not legally entitled to,” said HUD Inspector General David A. Montoya. “These actions today demonstrate our continued commitment to address and halt business practices that pose a serious risk to the FHA program and the public’s trust in HUD administered programs.” Sharelast_img read more

NewsNew Delhi: It is now a part of folklore as to how Mahendra Singh Dhoni was a ‘tennis ball king’ much before he ruled Indian cricket He was one of the best paid batsmen in tennis ball tournaments in Bengal which used to be a source of decent pocket money for budding cricketers But there are cases where cycle of life goes in reverse gear That’s what has happened with former Pakistan Test wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider who had suddenly walked away from the national team and sought asylum in the United Kingdom Zulqarnain Haider is remembered for scoring 88 in the second innings of his only Test appearance Getty Images The 30-year-old Zulqarnain has now picked up pieces and plays private T20 tournaments in the United States and is trying his luck in tennis ball tournaments although he has not ruled out the possibility of an international comeback Recently Zulqarnain came for the 10 Premier League which offers highest prize money (250000 Dirhams) for a tennis ball tournament "Tennis ball cricket can also be a career option One of my friends was a part of the organising committee So I came here for a few matches You never know but hope this also gives players a scope of growth The matches are completed in short span of time and is lucrative also" Zulqarnain who last played First-Class cricket in 2014 for Zarai Taraiqiati Bank Limited (ZTBL) told PTI His last List A appearance was even prior to that Since cricket was his bread and butter the keeper-batsman describes his method of running his finances by saying: "The bank job has helped me When I came back to Pakistan from my asylum in the UK the then interior minister Rehman Malik had helped me a lot So I have this job "Also I went to the United States and played a few tournaments in Chicago California and Washington Two were T20 tournaments So I am earning some money apart from the salary" He does not want to talk about past but at the same time does not have any regrets "I have always maintained that I had specific issues with a few players whom I won’t like to name And I was right wasn’t I Now the atmosphere in the Pakistan team is great I have no problems with any of the current cricketers who are representing Pakistan "In fact most of them I consider as friends Those with whom I had problems they are no longer playing for the national team" said the 30-year-old glovesman who had played one Test fourODIs and threeT20 Internationals for the national team For all practical reasons Zulqarnain in immediate future is unlikely to make it to the national team but he is hoping against hope that he gets some good performances at the first-class level and stakes a claim A total of 28 runs from fourinnings in qualifying round of Quaid-e-Azam trophy meant that he did not get to play for

German prodigy Alexander Zverev while title favourite Roger Federer warmed up for the last four by subduing Marin Cilic on Thursday Sock is the first American to reach the semi-finals of the season-ending event since Andy Roddick in 2007 The 25-year-old up to a career high ninth in the world rankings only qualified for the Tour Finals thanks to his first Masters title in Paris earlier this month Jack Sock celebrates after defeating Alexander Zverev in the ATP World Finals AP Sock was so sure he wouldn’t make it to the O2 Arena that he had planned to play a round of golf at Augusta

winner-takes-all Sampras group tie on Friday Just four months ago and only a few miles across south London Federer was celebrating his record eighth Wimbledon crown after crushing Cilic in a brutally one-sided final Cilic had been hampered by a blistered foot and the Croat was reduced to tears during the match as his predicament sunk in In their first meeting since that All England Club showdown Federer frustrated the already eliminated Cilic once again as he fought back to win 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 6-1 By extending his current winning streak to 13 matches the 36-year-old advanced from the Tour Finals group stage with an unblemished 3-0 record for the 10th time in his glittering career With Andy Murray Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka all absent due to injury and World No 1 Rafael Nadal

point down but I found a way out of it and I’m happy to be playing this way" Federer said "It’s nice to play tennis this freely It gives me a great idea how I want to be on Saturday I’m looking forward to facing (David) Goffin or (Dominic) Thiem" Legacy The prize money from Federer’s win over Zverev on Tuesday took him past golfer Tiger Woods to become the world’s highest earning athlete with a career total of 84 million ($110 million 94 million) according to Forbes But Federer is motivated by his legacy rather than the size of his bank balance Winning the Tour Finals for the first time since 2011 would be another feather in his cap at the end of a remarkable renaissance year which has seen him capture seven titles Zverev is tipped as a possible heir to Federer’s throne but the 20-year-old still has work to do after an erratic display against Sock A bruising first set went in Sock’s favour before Zverev took the second with ease When Zverev maintained his assault with a break in the first game of the deciding set Sock smashed the ball into the crowd with such force that he was punished with a penalty point Sock channelled that rage with a burst of power hitting as he won four successive games In a dramatic finish Zverev roared back from 4-1 down to draw level only for Sock to pounce on his first match point If small businesses need to flourish in Asia’s third

separate policy framework to help startups grow given that there is a tremendous interest among the youth to step into entrepreneurship On account of higher risk perception small businesses are unable

episode is a long hearty laugh In 1981 when he wore the cap of the Thane commissioner of police an afternoon call from his police officer felt serious Shiv Sainiks led by their shakha pramukh (branch head) had come protesting to the Kalyan police station to complain against Muslims from the local neighbourhoods “The officer told me that Shiv Sainiks were creating trouble for him They had come to the station house and were making all sorts of allegations against the local Muslims It was the time around Ganesh Festival or some such celebration He said they were getting very rowdy” Ribeiro recalls “I asked him to keep them amused and tell them that the commissioner is coming to hear them out” Share This Article Related Article Ribeiro who has detained Shiv Sainiks on many occasions while in service recalls the interaction once he reached the station house “I asked them what is the problem They started by identifying the local Muslims as Pakistanis…then they gave sermons on India This and that I said my goodness you are real warriors I understand your problem You want to fight these Musalmans Then you must fight them on the border I said I will just facilitate this So I took the phone and I phoned my own residence because there was no one at home at that hour The phone kept ringing” he says What followed was a spontaneous act where he pretended to talk to an imaginary Army official “I pretended it was some Major on the line I said ‘Major Sharma you wanted to recruit people for the Army I have got half a dozen people here ready to fight They are absolutely fine specimen And they want to go and are keen to fight Pakistanis’” Inside the police station the protesters went silent the mood changed he claims “They kept saying ‘no no’ I told them ‘I am talking to a Major do not interrupt us’ And again I continued on the phone’s speaker ‘When shall I send them Should I send them to you or will you come here to pick them’ These chaps were all nonplussed” adds Ribeiro The episode also finds a mention in his book Bullet for Bullet: My Life as a Police Officer Ribeiro says once he ended the call the Shiv Sainiks were informed that the Major had dispatched men to take them into service “I told them see that is where you should fight at the border Fighting on the street is very easy You can even send your small brothers if needed But on the border you go there and fight” he recalled The Sainiks left soon “…they just buzzed off” laughs Ribeiro He says when he saw the images of events unfolding on television screen he realised nothing seemed to have changed “If the organisers shift the venue from Mumbai to some other city this will give them a big jolt Whatever it is all the Shiv Sainiks are gully cricketers They are fond of cricket If the game is taken away from Mumbai they become quite unpopular” he reckons As a man who was the Mumbai Police commissioner when he detained 51 Shiv Sena shakha pramukhs during the Bombay-Bhiwandi riots of 1984 Ribeiro says there is only one message he has for the Mumbai Police and its commissioner: “There are three episodes that we have seen so far First they stopped the Ghulam Ali concert then they blackened Sudheendra Kulkarni’s face and now they don’t want Pakistani cricketers or umpires or commentators It’s a pattern If they (Mumbai Police) can prove the pattern a definite action needs to follow Just arresting them and releasing them on bail is not going to solve the matter It’s time to file chapter cases against them Keep them detained It will keep them engaged I know one thing from my experience and I am quite sure that position has not changed over the years As soon as they are put behind bars they get very upset They want their bosses to come and release them Without their
