Meerut: More than four years after the violent clashes between Dalit and Thakur in Shabbirpur in the Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, the special SC / ST court issued a summons to the secretary of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment of the Union; secretary, SC / ST National Commission; UP Chief Secretary and DGP, Director and Chief Secretary of Social Welfare Department, District Magistrate and Chief Superintendent (SSP) of Saharanpur for failing to adequately compensate Dalit victims and relatives deaths. Saharanpur MP Haji Fazlur Rehman of BSP was also summoned.
This came after the petitioners – victims of caste violence – alleged that these authorities had violated the 2016 Act Amending the List Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 2016, which provides for a series of compensation for Dalit victims of caste violence. These compensations, in the form of jobs, funds, rations, housing, etc., were not provided to the 56 victims of the violence in Shabbirpur, the petitioners said.
On May 5, 2017, clashes broke out between Thakurs and Dalits, leaving one dead and many injured in Shabbirpur. Later, 56 houses belonging to Dalits were set on fire. Violence erupted after Dalits opposed the broadcast of loud music during the Maharana Pratap jayanti yatra abducted by Thakurs.
Petitioner Dal Singh said: “According to the SC / ST law of 2016, every Dalit who suffered during the violence in Shabbirpur would be entitled to compensation of Rs 8.25 lakh. But they only received Rs 3 lakh. They are also entitled to Rs 5,000 per month. pension, for which a committee has been set up by the district administration and the corresponding budget has been requested from the state government, but approval is still pending. The law also provides for free education for the children of victims up to graduation level, in addition to providing farmland, jobs, etc. But even after four years of confrontation, we are waiting for all of this. Is this a blatant violation of the law? ”
Victims’ lawyer Raj Kumar said: “The Dalit victims admitted that they had received compensation of Rs 3 lakh each from the district social welfare department. 395 (dacoity) and 307 (attempted murder) of the IPC with the exception of other articles, including the relevant articles of the SC / ST law. These are more than sufficient for them to be able to claim all the compensation provided for by law. Violation of this law is a serious offense and, as a result, subpoenas have been issued. ”

Members of the MS Central State Troopers Coalition (MCSTC) held their quarterly meeting at the Legacy / Slaughter Library on Wednesday, November 10. They received a county welcome through Supervisory Board Chairman Jackie Bradford, welcoming remarks from Morton Mayor Gerald Keeton, a law enforcement welcome from Forest Police Chief Will Jones and remarks by welcome from the alderman of the I Yolanda White neighborhood, in the neighborhood where the event took place.

Local officials were delighted to have Lt. Col. Maliki Sanders, Captain Craig Morton, Troop Commander Broderik Hutchins and 20 other soldiers here to fraternize with the MS soldiers.

Constance Slaughter-Harvey, who was counsel in the Morrow v. Crisler, welcomed soldiers on behalf of Legacy and the Slaughter Library. She said: “We have come a long way since the desegregation lawsuit, Morrow v Crisler, was filed in 1970.

In Morrow v Crisler (5th Cir. 1973), it was held that the fact that there was no black patroller in the forces of the state of Mississippi, which had a black population of 36, 7%, was sufficient to support the district court’s conclusion that the department’s hiring practices violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Former Private Richard O. (RO) Williams, one of the first three African Americans to graduate and complete Highway Patrol Training Academy in 1972, chaired the welcome portion of the event. Retired Soldiers Walter Crosby and Lewis Younger were the other two African-American soldiers to graduate from the academy. These three soldiers were recognized at the meeting and received standing ovations for their bravery and leadership.

Slaughter-Harvey, who is also chairman of the board, said: “During this Thanksgiving month, Legacy, through its stakeholders and change agents SAVE OUR YOUTH through COMMUNITY ACTION, paused to express his thanks and gratitude to the three African-American patrol officers, who were the first to graduate and complete the MS Highway Safety Patrol Academy. She was talking about Williams, Lewis and Younger.

After the welcome session, Williams ran the business, under the direction of former MCSTC president James Gunter, in the library boardroom.

At the end of their meeting, they were treated to a delicious homemade feast prepared by Legacy volunteers: Nytezia Donald, Wanda Pinkston, Arnedral Pinkston, Betty Jo Laster, Adrena and Mary Clark. Other volunteers included Roy Pinkston, James “Tre” Burwell, Dorothy Pinkston and Andrew Crudup.

Rome’s resignation follows a weekend in Fort Valley State, Georgia, where the Marauders lost 35-14.

Neither he, nor CSU officials, would go into detail on what motivated their split.

“I stepped down from my post on Monday afternoon and look forward to my next opportunity,” said Rome, who lives in Huber Heights with his wife and young son Thursday afternoon.

When asked why he left after he and his players expressed so much optimism about the future just a few weeks ago, Rome replied: “You have to ask the central state for more on this situation.”

Central State spokesman Nick Novy simply said: “The coach let us know he was going to step down on Tuesday and we had to move forward fairly quickly.”

Marauders Athletics manager Tara Owens said much the same in her one-paragraph statement about the change.

Another person close to the CSU program said Rome’s resignation was due, in part, to a situation that followed Georgia’s 625-mile long bus ride on Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

Apparently some players, against the Rome directive, lingered at one last rest stop to buy groceries rather than making a quick climb back up so the tiring bus driver could take them home.

Back on campus around dawn, Rome and her coaches reportedly subjected the players to running drills in an attempt to berate them and bounce back. Then the players and coaches talked about the situation. A few players refused to run and left the team.

CSU officials became involved in the situation on Monday and Rome ended up resigning.

While Ragsdale – who was a member of the North Carolina A&T Hall of Fame – played three years in the NFL for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and coached at six historically black colleges (HBCUs) – is an extremely capable substitute, the loss of Rome is a blow to CSU.

He was hired in February 2020 to replace Cédric Pearl, who had gone from 19 to 46 in six seasons.

Rome, 33, was hired by Owens and touted as the man who could turn CSU’s recent fortunes around.

After winning the NAIA national titles in 1990, 1992 and 1995, the CSU ended its program for eight years for financial and other reasons.

Since the 2005 revival, the Marauders had lost 107 of their 146 games before Rome took over.

He was their fifth head coach at the time.

When the COVID pandemic interrupted everything – CSU students were sent home in the spring of 2020, the 2020 fall football season was canceled, as were the spring drills in 2021 – Rome became the player flute of promise.

He worked daily trying to reseed the well-worn grounds of McPherson Stadium until, several months later, NFL Hall of Fame member Willie Lanier announced his Honey Bear project would give CSU close to a million dollars to install artificial turf.

Rome has brought in several new coaches and over three dozen new players. The team got new uniforms and got a new attitude.

“We’ve all signed up for Coach Rome,” veteran defensive back Malik Johnson said ahead of the opening game. “It’s going to be awesome this year.

But the Marauders, who only had 16 days of training before playing their first game on Aug. 28, were wiped out by injuries, especially on defense.

In six games, CSU allowed 215 points (35.8 per game), while scoring only 77.

They lost their two demonstration games: 20-6 to Kentucky State in the Classic For Columbus season opener, then 46-34 to Allen University, an interim NCAA Division II schedule, in Homecoming earlier. this month, the match in which their new field was unveiled.

In between, there were back-to-back losses to Shaw and Miles by a combined score of 107-4.

Rome, who had been back at the University of North Carolina and All Pro in the United Football, had a reputation for creating programs, both at the Federal University of the Far East in Vladivostok, Russia, and then at the University of Virginia, a small HBCU in Lynchburg, Virginia. ., who was leading a 44-game losing streak when he took over in 2018

His team won four games that first season, but went winless in 2019.

Then came the CSU offer. At the time, Owens spoke about the school’s national research and how perfect he was.

But now, after just six games, CSU has had to return to the dressing room, yet again.

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday urged central and state governments and Union Territory administrations to sponsor and adopt rooftop solar power installations. He suggested that this could be made mandatory.

Mr Naidu said the installation of rooftop solar power plants could also be made mandatory.

“Buildings and premises should have the sunlight and also the natural air that were part of the architectural features in ancient times. Now we live in crowded places so there should be the adoption of a rooftop solar power plant. Building laws could also be amended to make these rooftop solar power plant installations and rainwater harvesting mandatory, ”the vice president said.

Lieutenant Governor of Pondicherry Tamilisai Soundararajan was among those who spoke.

Chief Minister N. Rangasamy, Speaker of the Pondicherry Assembly R. Selvam and Lok Sabha Member of Pondicherry V. Vaithilingam were among those present.
