Mayawati terms EC anti-dalit; says NAYA jumla of Congress

first_imgGopalganj (Bihar): BSP supremo Mayawati on Thursday alleged that the Election Commission has an anti-dalit mindset and that was why it had stopped her from campaigning in Agra, considered the ‘Dalit capital’ of northern India.She also claimed that BJP leaders are taking the Army’s name in their poll speeches violating the model code of conduct, but the EC is keeping mum. Mayawati, a dalit leader, also described the proposed ‘NAYA’ scheme as the ‘jumla’ of the Congress. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”The Election Commission, which has an anti-dalit mindset, stopped me from campaigning in the capital of dalits, Agra. Victory of BSP candidates in order to form its government at the Centre will be the appropriate reply to the Commission,” Mayawati said at a poll meeting here. The EC had imposed a 48-hour ban from 6 am on Tuesday on Mayawati on campaigning for her “provocative” communal remarks which, it said, had the “propensity to polarise the elections”. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe former UP chief minister was scheduled to campaign in Agra on Tuesday. Attacking the Congress, she described the proposed minimum income scheme ‘NAYA’ as ‘jumla’. “We do not believe in jumlas like the Congress which promises to provide Rs 6,000 as minimum income. We will give permanent jobs to farmers in government and private sectors if BSP comes to power at the Centre,” Mayawati said. The BSP has not come out with any manifesto as it does not believe in making making mere announcements, she said adding that it wants to carry out development works. Parties like the Congress and the BJP release their manifestos during poll time and forget its promises later, Mayawati alleged. All these ‘jumlebazi’ and ‘chowkidari’ will not be able to save the BJP government, she claimed. It is because of the BJP that the private sector follows no reservation policy, Mayawati alleged. The BSP leader asked women to prepare food for the men in the family only when they come back home after exercising their franchise.last_img read more

The Gators Bite Back

On Friday, I noted that the Florida Gators had seen a decline in their chances of winning the NCAA men’s basketball tournament despite beating Albany in their opening game. What hurt the Gators’ prospects? They defeated No. 16 Albany by an underwhelming 12 points, and they drew a tough Round of 32 matchup against Pittsburgh and a looming regional final matchup against either Kansas or Syracuse.But the Gators had a terrific weekend. They thrashed Pittsburgh by 16 points. And they were helped by upsets in the other half of the South region, with No. 3 Syracuse and No. 2 Kansas both losing to opponents with double-digit seeds.The Gators’ game against UCLA on Thursday is no gimme — they have a 72 percent chance of winning it, according to our model.  But conditional upon winning that game, they have an 83 percent chance of winning the regional final against either No. 10 Stanford or No. 11 Dayton and advancing to the Final Four.All in all, the Gators benefited more than any other team from the opening week of the tournament. Their chances of winning the national title are 18.4 percent, up from 14.5 percent before the tournament began. read more

NBA Playoffs Preview The Cavs Down Two Players Are Still Favored Against

Kevin Love’s dislocated shoulder leaves the Cleveland Cavaliers with just two of their “Big Three” for the rest of the playoffs. But the remaining “Big Two” — LeBron James and Kyrie Irving — are probably enough to outlast the Chicago Bulls. FiveThirtyEight’s forecast, which is based on Real Plus-Minus, gives the Cavs a 70 percent likelihood of moving on. The Cavs will also be without J.R. Smith — who was suspended for the first two games of this series after throwing an ill-advised elbow against the Boston Celtics.1These projections assume he plays 20 minutes per game, down from 32 minutes per game this year.The Cavaliers’ offense is spectacular; it ranked third, behind only the Clippers and Warriors, in points per 100 possessions. It is built on shooting a ton of threes — the second-most in the league, as a percentage of total shots — and highly efficient attacking drives to the hoop from James and Irving. The Cavs also excel at offensive rebounding, especially Tristan Thompson, who will play big minutes now that Love is out. Admittedly, it’s still not clear exactly how Cleveland will adjust its rotation. The Bulls are tough and will put up a fight, but the Cavs’ offensive firepower, led by James, will most likely be too much to handle.The Bulls, by contrast, win on defense. Chicago held opponents to the second-lowest shooting percentage in the league. The defense carried them through an inconsistent year from Derrick Rose, who was sidelined with sporadic injuries. Rose, however, showed flashes of brilliance in the first round. And Jimmy Butler is the Bulls’ real star — with a +3.7 Real Plus-Minus rating, he’s the second-best player in this series behind James. Rose and Butler will have to have a transcendent series against a short-handed Cleveland team for the Bulls to have a chance. read more

Playing The Game OSU Michigan prep for battle

Malcolm JenkinsOverall: 16-8      Last week: 3-0Prediction: Ohio State 21, Michigan 10Comment: OSU’s defense is playing great and the offense won’t have to feel any pressure to have quick scores. They just have to maintain the drives and not turn the ball over. Look for the “D” to have a big game. I’m calling this the 6th in a row.Favorite memories: Beating them at home when we were No. 1 and they were No. 2 in ’06, that was an epic game. And last year when I slammed Michigan’s wide receiver Greg Mathews in the beginning of the game.Jenkins played cornerback for OSU from 2005–08.Marcus FreemanOverall: 13-11     Last week: 1-2Prediction: Ohio State 28, Michigan 10Comment: This is the greatest rivalry in all sports. No matter what the records are, it will be a fight until the end. Favorite memory: Celebrating in Ohio stadium with OSU students after the win in ’06.Freeman played linebacker for OSU from 2004–08.Zack MeiselOverall: 12-12    Last week: 2-1Prediction: Ohio State 34, Michigan 17Comment: Rabid Wolverine fans get over-excited about a first quarter lead, then reality sets in quickly once the typically slow-starting Buckeyes get rolling against a porous Michigan defense.Meisel is the sports editor for The Lantern. Whether undefeated or winless, it’s still Ohio State-Michigan.In 2006, OSU and Michigan clashed in Columbus undefeated as the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the nation.Any sensible observer could have explained the magnitude of the stakes.On Saturday, the Buckeyes will meet Michigan at The Big House, with a Big Ten title and trip to the Rose Bowl already wrapped up.Still, as OSU coach Jim Tressel warned, anyone involved in the unparalleled rivalry can find grounds for motivation.“There’s a reality in life that if you take anything for granted, you’re probably not thinking right,” Tressel said. “We talk about a lot of things that we shouldn’t take for granted. Maybe some things that aren’t even that real to us, but when you talk about the Ohio State-Michigan game, that’s very real. So I’d like to think our guys don’t take anything for granted, although I’m sure we all do take things for granted, but this wouldn’t be one of them.”The Buckeyes are currently riding their longest winning streak in the series’ 112-year history, having won each of the last five meetings.A sixth straight mashing of Michigan might spark comparisons to the Wolverines’ domination at the start of the series, when Michigan won 12 of the first 14 contests, tying the other two.Since taking the reins at Ohio State, Tressel has coached the Buckeyes to victory over their rivals to the north in seven of eight meetings.“I’ve known before I was even part of the series of the significance of the game and the excitement of the game,” Tressel said. “It’s part of you if you like football and you’re from Ohio State or you’re from Michigan, or if you’re in the Big Ten. You just grow up knowing that we’re fortunate to be a part of this game. It’s extraordinary.”While OSU will feed off the motivation to stomp on a struggling Michigan program, the Wolverines will rely upon desperation.Michigan must beat Ohio State to secure bowl eligibility. Otherwise, Rich Rodriguez’s squad will start the offseason early for the second consecutive season.“The nice thing of the Ohio State-Michigan game is it’s always let it all hang out because this is it,” Tressel said. “I mean, this is what it’s all about. And I think if you look specifically at Michigan, they could be at eight or nine wins right now with the ball bouncing this way different or a call being made this way different. I mean, that’s the fine line in college football.”So, despite the disparity in records, statistics and performance, it is all thrown out the window when the two programs go head-to-head, Tressel said.“It’s Ohio State-Michigan,” he said. “I’m sure you could talk to some people who have participated in this game as a player or a coach and they could tell you that probably in the forefront of their mind of their memories of their time here, more so is the Ohio State-Michigan things that flow through their head than it is which bowl did you go to and where were you ranked and this and that, so what’s at stake is Ohio State-Michigan.”The nature of the rivalry brings out the best in both sides, which represents the best in college football.It didn’t take much time for Rodriguez, closing out his second year at the helm at Michigan, to take notice of the passion and enthusiasm that encompasses the rivalry.“I don’t think it takes long to understand the rivalry when you’re a coach at Michigan or Ohio State,” he said. “You don’t even have to coach here or play here to understand the intensity of it if you watch college football.”Regardless of Saturday’s outcome, Ohio State will play in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.The undetermined future to Michigan’s season rides on the 106th meeting in the OSU-Michigan rivalry, and Tressel hopes his team is playing its best football to thwart a Wolverine attempt at evening its record.“What we’ve got to focus on is feeling like at the end of this game we’ve played the best we’re capable of playing,” he said. “It’s game 12. We’re as healthy as we are, and got all these experiences and learned all these lessons, and did we play the best we were capable of playing? Making the assumption Michigan will do that, because most people do that in the Ohio State-Michigan game, so all those other outside things, whether they’re outside things in their world or outside things in our world, this week there’s only one thing.” Justin ZwickOverall: 16-8     Last week: 3-0Prediction: Ohio State 31, Michigan 10Comment: Defense plays another great game while the offense continues to grind it out but sprinkles in a few big plays against Michigan’s weak secondary. Bucks roll!Zwick played quarterback for OSU from 2002–06.

first_imgThe German attacking midfielder returned to Borussia Dortmund after three years with Bayern Munich and he’s loving itBorussia Dortmund has seen many changes in the past months, and for Mario Gotze, these changes are great.“Personally, I didn’t expect things to be going so well because these things take time with a new coach, new players, and with the development needed,” he told the Bundesliga website.“You never quite know what is going to happen, but this makes it even better that things have gone so well. Of course, we know that not everything is perfect and that we won a few games with a bit of luck.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s nevertheless nice to have picked up the points and to get through our Champions League group. It’s great,” he added.“The coach and the whole team are doing their bit. The opposition and how they are set up also play a role and how they perform in the situation.”“There are many factors that play a role and you also need a certain amount of luck to win these games,” he explained.“I think we are very unpredictable in games and our substitutes also score a lot of goals.”last_img read more

Paul Pogba determined to erase Man Utd defeatshame with Tottenham

first_imgManchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is determined to erase Red Devils 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last year August by putting up an impressive performance in their Sunday match against the same club.Pogba missed the win over Reading FC in the Emirates FA Cup third round was a result of an injury he picked up after Newcastle United during their last Premier League outing.“I remember the first game [against Spurs] when we lost 3-0 at home,” he told official Man Utd website.”I’ve still got it in my mind. We don’t want to let this happen again.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“It’s Tottenham, you know. They’re a very good team, they’re in the top four, so it’s going to be a big game. It’s going to be a tough one. We need points and they need them as well. We’ll see – it’s going to be a tough one.”Pogba is confident they have more glass ceiling to break even though they added five successive victories in all competitions in their cart making other clubs looking over shine.”We’re still far [away] but it’s good that people forget about us a bit,” he said.“We’re just coming our way, staying focused and trying to do our things – that’s what we need to do.”last_img read more
