altJehlum Post News / Jammu/Jan 28, 2015/In the backdrop of severe financial crisis being faced by the State, the Governor, Mr. N.N. Vohra has requested the Union Home Minister for the urgent clearance of the State Government’s request for the release of funds under the National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF). The Governor has also sought  the Home Minister’s  support for the clearance  of proposals contained in the Special Financial Package of  44000 crore to enable the rehabilitation of the flood victims  and for the  restoration of the damaged public infrastructure in accordance with the provisions of the NDRF Guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs.A Raj Bhavan Spokesperson recalled that the State Government had submitted, in October 2014, a proposal to the Union Home Ministry for seeking financial assistance

under NDRF of  44,000 crore which included 2926.11 crore for providing relief to the affected families and temporary restoration of the damaged infrastructure.  Consequently, an Inter-Ministerial Team had visited the State and its recommendations have recently been considered in a meeting of the Sub-Committee of the National Executive Committee which was chaired by the Union Home Secretary.


  The State Revenue and Relief Secretary had attended this meeting and additional documentation sought by the Committee has also since been made available to the Ministry of Home Affairs in support of State’s claims. The Spokesperson added that early sanction of the State Government claim is critical for clearing the liabilities which have accumulated on account of the temporary restoration of the public infrastructure. After the commencement of the Governor’s Rule, the Governor personally reviewed each and every aspect of flood relief distribution and, consequent to holding several rounds of personal discussions with all concerned officers, has addressed a detailed communication to the Union Finance Minister to seek his personal intervention for a very early and sympathetic decision for the release of funds. The Spokesperson Wednesday disclosed that the Governor is also visiting Delhi later this week for meeting the Home Minister and seeking his support for the clearance of proposals contained in the Special Financial Package, to enable the rehabilitation of the flood victims without any further delay.

    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.
