Nagaland's home minister Imkong L Imchen was detained on Monday near Wokha district after he was allegedly found carrying a cache of arms and ammunition and Rs1.10 crore in cash in a vehicle, official sources said.
Imchen was going to his constituency Koridanga in Mokokchung district from Kohima when Assam Rifles personnel conducting search of vehicles near Wokha district found the arms and ammunition, liquor and cash, the sources said.
The Assam Rifles personnel handed him over to the district administration and police.
Imchen is the Nagaland People’s Front (NPF) candidate from Koridanga and is also the NPF campaign in-charge of Mokokchung district.
The NPF has put up 10 candidates in Mokokchung district. On 16th February, an Election Commission surveillance team had seized Rs1 crore cash from a helicopter allegedly being used by a candidate of the NPF in Nagaland.
A team of EC-appointed observers seized the cash from a chopper, which was allegedly hired to ferry Nyemli Phom, who is contesting the assembly polls from a constituency in Longleng district.
Telenor which participated in the November 2012 auction through new entity Telewings Communications and won spectrum in six circles said, “All Uninor customers from Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat and other circles will continue to be able to use their Uninor phones in Mumbai
Private telecom services operator Uninor closed its Mumbai operations from midnight on Saturday following a Supreme Court order, which said all the operators who did not win spectrum in the previous auctions should close down services immediately.
The cancellation of licences has affected 1.8 million customers in Mumbai as of December 2012.
The court ordered that the cancellation of licenses should be effective immediately and no temporary license would be granted to the company.
Telenor is the majority stakeholder of the Uninor. Telenor won rights to airwaves in six of those zones in an auction in November and has said it might decide to bid for spectrum in Mumbai zone in an auction due in March.
Telenor’s permits in 22 zones were among those ordered to be revoked by India’s Supreme Court last year after a massive scandal over the grant of cellular licences in a 2008 sale.
However, Telenor which participated in November 2012 auction through new entity Telewings Communications and won spectrum in six circles, is now in process of transferring business of Uninor in Maharashtra and Goa, Gujarat, UP East, UP West, Bihar and Jharkhand and Andhra Pradesh service areas, to Telewings Communications.
Uninor said its operations in these service areas “will continue as fresh spectrum for 20 years has already been secured.” Uninor will also sign roaming agreements with other operators to ensure that all Uninor customers get seamless connectivity when travelling to Mumbai. “All Uninor customers from Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat and other circles will continue to be able to use their Uninor phones in Mumbai,” it said.
In the best case scenario the growth could climb to 5.5% this fiscal, Planning Commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia said, adding “if there was strength in the recovery then many more signs would have been evident”
The Indian economy would grow at a rate of between 5% and 5.5% in current fiscal and could expand by 7% in 2013-14, said Planning Commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia.
His comments came after the Central Statistical Organisation (CSO) has projected 5% economic growth this fiscal in its advance estimates released earlier this month.
In the best case scenario the growth could climb to “5.5%” this fiscal, he said, adding “if there was strength in the recovery then many more signs would have been evident”.
Economic growth in 2011-12 slipped to 6.2% from 9.3% a year ago mainly on account of global factors and subdued investor sentiments.
Gross Domestic Production (GDP) of the country has grown by 5.5% in April-June quarter and further declined to 5.3% in July-September quarter.
The recent industrial production data which reflects the health of mainly the manufacturing sector has also portrayed a dismal picture. Manufacturing constitutes almost 75% of the IIP.
The factory output measured in terms of Index of Industrial Production (IIP) for December, 2012, contracted by 0.6% for second straight month. IIP declined by 0.8% in November 2012.
