Some Dude filed a RTI asking if the Indian government is prepared for a zombie attack.



The Indian government is no stranger when it comes to fielding some hella weird questions. There was an RTI asking if Prime Minister Narendra Modi had acted in Ramlila and what’s his number. An RTI was sought asking what was Mahatama Gandhi’s IQ, another asking how many trees are green in the country.
 
But on March 15 this year, a man by the name of Ajay Kumar conclusively ended the contest of amazing queries posed to the government, by filing this RTI request.
 
Here’s what he exactly wants to know.

I am concerned about the readiness of our Government in the event of an invasion by Aliens Zombies and Extra Dimensional Beings.

Can the Ministry of Home Affairs tell me

What plans are in place for protecting the public in the event of an invasion by Aliens or Zombies and Extra Dimensional Beings

What are our chances against them

What means does the Government have at its disposal to defeat them

Can we do it without Will Smith
 
"Can we do it without Will Smith?" Kumar, who is 26 years old, added. He was referring to the Hollywood actor who fights zombies in the film I Am Legend and tackles aliens on earth in the Men in Black film franchise.
 
In its response, the Home ministry has stated that the query refers to a "hypothetical situation" and therefore does not fall under its purview.
 
The image was posted on the Facebook page of YouRTI.in, a site that allows citizens to submit online RTI requests.

 

But it went viral only few days back when it was posted on Twitter by journalist Abhimanyu Ghoshal.

 


 

And twitter have been left wondering how it took this long for someone to ask the government something so relevant and important.

And Indians have been left wondering how it took this long for someone to ask the government something so relevant and important.
 
The Right To Information (RTI) Act gives Indian citizens the power to ask public authorities any relevant questions.

One killed, 10 injured as drunk student crashes Porsche into autos

One killed, 10 injured as drunk student crashes Porsche into autos



A 30-year-old man died and ten others suffered injuries when a Porsche car hit the median on the Dr Radhakrishnan Salai in Chennai and ploughed through autorickshaws parked on the roadside in the early hours of Monday.

Police said Vikas Anand (22), a car racer and a resident of T Nagar, and his friend Charan Kumar were returning home after attending a party thrown by Tuti Patriot, who won the Tamil Nadu Premier League final held at Chepauk on Sunday night. 

The two managed to escape the crash unharmed as the airbags deployed. They have since been arrested.

One driver, 29-year-old G Arumugam, was killed on the spot. His seven-year-old daughter has been orphaned as she lost her mother recently. "Tough action should be taken against rich people who drink and drive. My brother lost his wife and child recently...now his other child is an orphan," said G Vinayagam, Arumugam's brother.

Some of the autos were almost reduced to a crumpled heap with the impact.

After hitting the curb, the car smashed into several parked autos, injuring their drivers, who were sleeping on the road.
 
Auto drivers Arumugam and Varadhan suffered serious injuries, and were transferred to the Rajiv Gandhi Government Hospital, while the rest were sent to the Royapettah Government Hospital. Arumugam succumbed to his injuries.

The Adyar traffic police have registered a case, and investigations are underway.

In another drink driving incident in July this year, a woman driver of an Audi car killed a 45-year-old man while speeding on the OMR in Chennai.

17 Soldiers Dead In Attack at Army Base in Kashmir's Uri, 4 Terrorists Killed, PM Modi vows action

17 Soldiers Dead In Attack at Army Base in Kashmir's Uri, 4 Terrorists Killed, PM Modi vows action



 In one of the deadliest attacks on the Army in recent years, 17 jawans were killed as heavily armed militants stormed a battalion headquarters of the force in North Kashmir's Uri town in the wee hours on Sunday.

Four militants involved in the terror strike were killed by the Army.

Explosions and gunfire erupted as the militants attacked the camp, which is located barely few metres away from the Army's Brigade Headquarters in Uri town, 102 kms from Srinaga, around 4 am.

Four "fidayeen” - or commando-style gunmen willing to fight to the death - were confirmed killed after sneaking into the base near the Line of Control with Pakistan, the worst single attack on the army in 26 years.

More than 30 soldiers were injured, many of them critically, stoking fears that the death toll will rise.

Most of the soldiers were killed when their tents caught fire in the grenade attack. Visuals showed thick smoke rising from the base on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad highway.
 

The strike jeopardised hopes of peace returning quickly to the Valley that has been rocked by two months of violent protests that have killed 86 people and injured thousands.

Uri houses the army's brigade headquarters. The attack took place during a change of command, which means one unit was replacing another and many soldiers were in tents or temporary shelters.

Some 30 soldiers were injured in a six-hour gun battle with the terrorists who are believed to have crossed a canal along the Line of Control, cut through the fencing and infiltrated into Kashmir.

The dawn raid surprised soldiers in their sleep as attackers set fire to a building. The blaze killed 12 soldiers and the rest died in the gunfight, sources added.

Television footage showed helicopters flying to evacuate the injured as smoke billowed from the base.

Defence minister Manohar Parrikar said he will visit Uri and home minister Rajnath Singh cancelled scheduled trips to Russia and the United States and called an emergency meeting. Army chief Dalbir Singh and northern command head DS Hooda also rushed to Uri.

Sources said the attack was part of a fresh wave of infiltration by militants who the government blames for instigating Kashmiris and stirring unrest.

A militant raid in December 2014, also near Uri, had killed eight soldiers and three policemen. In February, the army lost three soldiers in the deadliest suicide bomber attack in Srinagar in many years.

Reactions:

"We strongly condemn the cowardly terror attack in Uri. I assure the nation that those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted.

Home minister Rajnath Singh hit out at Pakistan, calling it a terror state that needed to be "identified and isolated”.

"I am deeply disappointed with Pakistan’s continued and direct support to terrorism and terrorist groups,” he tweeted.

President Pranab Mukherjee also Condemned the attack
Soon after Singh pointed a finger at Pakistan, its foreign office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria dismissed the accusation. "India immediately puts blame on Pakistan without doing any investigation. We reject this,” Zakaria told Reporters.

Angry AIIMS Students Throw Ink At Health Minister JP Nadda

Angry AIIMS Students Throw Ink At Health Minister JP Nadda



AIIMS Bhopal students on Saturday afternoon thew ink at Union Health Minister J P Nadda in protest against the "poor” facilities at the medical institution.

The students have been demanding better faculty and facilities at AIIMS Bhopal. Explaining the reason behind throwing ink at the union minister, a medical student told news that Nadda did not stop to listen to their grievances.
 
Nearly 50 medical students, who are not happy with the facilities at the campus, wanted to meet the Health Minister but were not allowed to by the administration.

The students claim the campus had not been developed properly in the last four years.

When Mr Nadda was walking towards his car to leave the campus, the protesting students tried to talk to him and one of them then threw ink on the minister's white kurta.
 

The students started shouting slogans after the attack.
 
The more than 50 medical students had gathered in protest, and the police had to use mild force to disperse them as they tried to block the health minister’s car. Two third-year MBBS students, identified as Ijha Pandey and Anjali Krishna, fell down and sustained minor injuries in the scuffle.
 
The marker ink was thrown when the minister was in his car, on his way out of the AIIMS campus, at around 1:30 pm. The motorcade, however, zipped out of the institute.
 

Nadda, who is the fourth Union health minister to visit the institute in the last 13 years, inaugurated five facilities at the hospital, including two new wards, pharmacy, high-dependency unit, blood bank storage and a maternity ward. He also unveiled CT Scan and MRI services at the hospital.

The minister was accompanied by Bhopal MP Alok Sanjar, minister Rustam Singh and senior doctors of the institute.

Delhi L-G asks Sisodia to ‘return immediately’ from Finland

Delhi L-G asks Sisodia to ‘return immediately’ from Finland



Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Friday asked Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who is in Finland on an official tour, to return to Delhi, said officials in the LG’s office. Jung asked the minister to return in view of the chikungunya and dengue outbreak in the capital, said Raj Niwas officials. However, Delhi government officials said the Deputy CM’s office had not received any communication from the LG’s office.

Sisodia is on an official tour of Finland, along with representatives of Brazil, China and some Gulf Nations, to assess best practices in Finnish education.

Source said, besides Mr. Sisodia, who also hold the education portfolio, all officers including Education Secretary have been directed to return to Delhi immediately.

"The L-G has sent the summons himself directing the Minister to return to Delhi in light of the outbreak of vector-borne diseases in the NCT so that it may be tackled more effectively," said the source.

AAP leaders have been accused of first not doing enough to ensure that threats of epidemics from vector-borne diseases do not rise, and then shirking responsibility by either shifting the blame or being absent from Delhi. Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain recently said chikungunya cannot cause deaths. The statement has done the exact opposite of helping the party's image, which has already taken a hit from several of its leaders being accused in criminal cases.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is away in Bengaluru where he is receiving post-op care after a throat surgery while Labour Minister Gopal Rai is in Chhattisgarh for party work.

Earlier on Friday evening, Sisodia had come out all guns blazing on all those who have been ridiculing his foreign visit and said that it is not a "sin" to study the schooling system of other countries to fix the problems in Delhi's education system.
 
Taking a dig at all those who have accused him of enjoying a vacation abroad, Sisodia added, "It's a sin to defame an educational tour as a holiday".
 

 
"To fix the problems of Delhi's education system, I'll do whatever is needed. Whatever trolls may say," he tweeted.

Till early this week, Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra was the only member from Mr. Kejriwal's cabinet to be present in Delhi, before being joined by Health Minister Satyendra Jain, who was away in Goa for party work.

Congress activists observed 'Bhagoda Divas' in Delhi to protest against the alleged absence of the Chief Minister, his deputy and other ministers from the capital.
