altJehlum Post News|Srinagar| Feb 11, 2014| Opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti while striking back at NC Tuesday said that her party wants to concrete announcement over the formation of new administrative units in the state and that discrimination must be shunned at the earliest. “They say that our protest was unconstitutional, we want to ask them what was the killing of Haji Yousuf, the slaughter of 120 people in 2010 and the Shopian double rape and murder case.” Mehbooba stated that till the government comes up with the announcement of the new administrative units wherein justice is done to all the regions of the state, PDP will continue to protest. “We want announcement and not the discussion.

Now the ball is in the court of the government.” Taking strong note of the protest demonstrations by PDP and BJP during the assembly proceedings, Senior NC leader and a minister Ali Mohammad Sagar Tuesday said that the ‘bizarre’ acts of the opposition parties is a sheer frustration against the remarkable success of the present coalition government. Sagar, while talking to local news agency outside the assembly secretariat on Tuesday had said that the opposition parties are giving vent to their frustration by causing serious disruption on the floor of the house. He added that the historic steps taken by the government in the recent past like the creation of new administrative units and incorporation of 73rd amendment in the panchayat raj act of the state has given sleepless nights to the opposition and that they are left with no option but to halt the house’s proceedings. Sagar asserted further that the house will not succumb to the disruption being caused by PDP and BJP and that it will continue to discuss the problems faced by the common masses of the state. “We will continue to raise the issues of people and will strive to resolve the same.”Ridiculing the incidents wherein some legislators stood on tables to register their protests, Sagar stated that the people are the best judges and they can differentiate between friends and foes. “How come theses pathetic actions are going to help the opposition? This is clearly unlawful and unconstitutional.”

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
