Horsetrading allegations Yadav comes in defence of Kejriwal

first_imgCalling as “sting-fest” emergence of certain audio clips purportedly featuring Kejriwal’s voice, Yadav said “innocuous conversations” were being presented as stings to “discredit” AAP.”One incident is being used to discredit the entire movement. Now innocuous conversations are also being presented as stings. Big accusations are flying sans any evidence. The media is happy to dish it all with a glee,” a post on his Facebook page said.”Whatever our internal differences, no one from this movement can possibly enjoy let alone join this mudslinging. All of us must join hands to preserve the organisationl unity and ethical integrity of this movement,” it added.

Or so I hope,” he said.Yadav, who had also issued a joint letter with Bhushan rejecting the allegations of anti-party activities against them, wondered whether “powerful forces” were behind the tumult in the party. “… Is this situation playing into the hands of those powerful forces who would rather that the idea of AAP is nipped in the bud?,” he asked adding the need to “resist” such designs.”The spate of attacks on the party in the last two days can only evoke deep anguish. Have received messages from thousands of volunteers. Everyone is hurt and pained,” he said.Meanhwile, Shahid Azad –who was a part of the AAP’s minority wing –, and who leaked the Kejriwal audio, said he just wanted to bring to the notice the issues discussed by the top leadership.”The real intention is not to disrespect or harm the party. I just want to point out the party leadership talking about various issues between them.”They talk about eradication of communal politics, which is one of our ideals to achieve. I want this issue to be discussed. This audio tape is only confined to that extent and nothing else,” Azad saidlast_img read more

Outsiders reaping benefits of Bengals health schemes

first_imgKolkata: Thousands of people from neighbouring states are getting benefits of various health schemes initiated by the Bengal government.Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s dream projects of providing free-of-cost health services in all state-run hospitals and medical colleges, have already become a great success with a large number of people availing free treatment at the hospitals. Now, it has been found that many patients from neighbouring states and countries are also benefitting from the health schemes.The success of the project has gone to the extent where a large number of people are coming to the city to undergo critical surgeries at various hospitals, thereby availing the benefits of the health schemes started by the Mamata Banerjee government. According to a senior Health department official, people from outside the state are reaping the benefits of the projects and many of these patients are undergoing critical surgeries at various state-run medical colleges in the city, free-of-cost.A sizeable number of patients are from Bangladesh. In most of the cases, the state Health department is clueless about the whereabouts of these patients coming from outside, as they show themselves to be local residents. After the disease is cured, the patients go back to their respective native places. This in turn is creating a pressure on the state government.”We cannot stop a patient from outside from being treated at a government hospital free-of-cost, only because he/she is not a resident of the state. Thus, many outside patients are found to be getting the benefits of various health schemes of the state,” a senior official of the Health department said.It has been found that in many cases, the patients mention the address of their local relatives, where they stay during their visit to the state. Most of these outside patients are from Jharkhand and Bihar, among other states. A large number of people from Bangladesh and Nepal also visit the hospitals.last_img read more

8 Companies Changing How Machine Learning Is Used

first_imgApril 24, 2017 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. What was once only seen in sci-fi movies is now reality — and it’s gaining acceptance across many industries and audiences. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are two terms seen in the media on a near daily basis. More and more companies are adopting the technology for use in their products and services, understanding the significant value it adds in working with an audience that expects personalization. After all, the only way a company could address every one of its hundreds or thousands of customers is with a machine that can process information in a way that no human is capable of doing.Related: Emerging Ethical Concerns In the Age of Artificial IntelligenceThere are some standout companies that are now making significant strides in how machine learning can be used, setting themselves well above others in their industry. Keep your eye on these eight incredible companies this year to see how they incorporate this technology:1.
