Senior Politician and MLA (Sangole, Solapur district) Ganpatrao Deshmukh on Thursday during the Maharashtra Legislature winter session 2016 raised the issue of water shortage problems in Solapur district owing to improper rains.

In a media briefing, Deshmukh later said, “Last year and this year, there have been no proper rains. Las year, the government had declared 1050 villages in Solapur district to be drought hit. And this year, because there have been no rains, in many town and villages, importantly in Sangole taluka, the rivers, drains, ponds, and wells have dried up. From January onwards, there is going to be an acute shortage of drinking water as well. In a situation like this, to solve the problem the state government should release water from different major water bodies to the lakes and other water bodies. To request this, all the MLAs of the Solapur were present today. NCP leader Dilip Walse Patil informed the house about all this and presented the proposal to release the water from rivers. The Honourable Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has assured us that with the help of Maharashtra Minister Pankaja Munde planning for this will be done.”

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.



The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
