Supreme Court Bans People from Roaming on Highways

The Supreme Court of India has stated that people are not supposed to roam around on highways, dismissing a plea that raised concerns about the safety of pedestrians on these roads. The petition challenged an order from the Gujarat High Court, which said that it could not provide positive directions on the matter as it would be a policy decision. The High Court advised the petitioners to approach the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways with their grievances. During the hearing, the Supreme Court bench questioned how pedestrians could end up on highways and emphasized the need for discipline. The court argued that highways are meant to be segregated and that people should not be allowed to walk or stroll on them. The bench also highlighted that the number of road accidents involving pedestrians has increased due to a lack of discipline. The court concluded that the plea lacked logic and should have been dismissed with costs. sources

White Lung Syndrome: Mysterious Pneumonia Outbreak Resembling China's

A global outbreak of a new bacterial pneumonia strain known as White Lung Syndrome has raised concerns, particularly due to its impact on children aged three to eight. While the exact cause of the outbreak is still unknown, experts suspect it may be linked to a newly identified strain of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, a common bacterium responsible for respiratory infections. White Lung Syndrome is characterized by white patches on chest X-rays and encompasses various respiratory illnesses such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis (PAM), and silicosis. ARDS occurs when fluid accumulates in the air sacs of the lungs, making breathing difficult. PAM is a rare lung disease caused by calcium deposits in the air sacs, leading to shortness of breath and chest pain. Silicosis, on the other hand, is caused by inhaling silica dust and can also cause respiratory symptoms. Symptoms of White Lung Syndrome include shortness of breath, coughing, chest pain, fever, and fatigue. The underlying cause is believed to involve a combination of bacterial, viral, and environmental factors. Treatment options vary depending on the cause and severity of the condition, ranging from antibiotics and antivirals to oxygen therapy and corticosteroids. sources

Madhya Pradesh Election Results 2023: Live Counting and Result

The Madhya Pradesh election results are being declared today, with counting of votes starting at 8 am IST. The state has been a stronghold for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the past twenty years, except for a 15-month period when the Congress came to power in 2018. BJP's Shivraj Singh Chouhan, a four-time Chief Minister, has not been officially declared as the candidate for the top post in 2023. The Congress is hoping to make a comeback after over two decades in the opposition. The state saw its highest-ever voter turnout of over 77% during the Assembly polls. The BJP is seen as having the advantage on paper, with three of the last four elections in their favor. The Congress sees this election as a chance for redemption after losing power in 2020 due to defections led by Jyotiraditya Scindia. The BJP aims to capitalize on the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for a fifth win in the state. sources

Telangana Election 2023: Live Updates on Vote Counting

The counting of votes for the Telangana Assembly elections will begin today at 8 am, as the state decides whether K Chandrasekhar Rao of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) will retain power for a third term or if the BJP or Congress will take control. The BRS is relying on its social welfare programs to stay in the lead, while the Congress hopes for a repeat of its success in neighboring Karnataka. The BJP aims to expand its reach in southern India by making inroads into Telangana. The three parties will need to reach the magic number of 60 seats in the 119-seat Assembly to form a government. Most exit polls predict a victory for the Congress, with BRS in second place and the BJP trailing behind. The counting of votes for all five states that went to polls last month will begin at 8 am. sources

Rajasthan Election 2023: Congress and BJP Face Tough Contest

The counting of votes in Rajasthan is set to be a riveting show, despite exit polls predicting a victory for the BJP. The state has a history of voting out the incumbent party, making the outcome uncertain. Both the BJP and Congress campaigned intensely, with the BJP deploying senior ministers and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while the Congress focused on grassroots campaigning. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot projected confidence, but exit polls indicate a challenging task for him to secure a second consecutive term. The polls suggest that the BJP may win comfortably with 104 seats, while the Congress may secure 86 seats. However, there is a chance that the BJP could find itself on the other side of the fence, as there is not a marked difference in the poll promises of the two parties. Both parties have struggled with inner rifts and factionalism, with the Congress facing a feud between Gehlot and Sachin Pilot. The lack of a Chief Ministerial candidate for the BJP may also affect their fortunes. Overall, the Rajasthan election promises to be a cliffhanger. sources

2023 Election Results: BJP, Congress Face Nerve-Wracking Battle

The counting of votes for three heartland states and one in the south has begun in India, with the results seen as a bellwether for next year's Lok Sabha polls. Exit polls have predicted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will retain Madhya Pradesh and reclaim Rajasthan, while the Congress is projected to win a second term in Chhattisgarh and secure a victory in Telangana. However, exit polls can often be inaccurate. The contest in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh is generating the most suspense, with Telangana also looking promising for the Congress. A victory in Madhya Pradesh could boost the stock of Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the four-time Chief Minister of the state. The results will be crucial for both the BJP and Congress ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. sources

Congress may prevent KCR's hat-trick in Telangana

The ruling party in Telangana, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), led by President K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), is facing the challenge of anti-incumbency as it seeks a hat-trick of terms in the upcoming Assembly elections. Exit polls, including the NDTV Poll of Polls, have predicted that the BRS is likely to lose power to the Congress. According to the Poll of Polls, the Congress is expected to win 62 seats, two more than the majority, while the BRS may be reduced to 44 seats. The BJP-Jana Sena alliance and the AIMIM are predicted to win seven and five seats respectively. The BRS has faced criticism over issues such as unemployment, alleged discrimination in the distribution of funds, and a lack of dissent within the party. The Congress, which claims credit for Telangana gaining statehood, has revamped its Telangana unit and offered six guarantees to voters. The BJP's campaign has been affected by the removal of its state chief, Bandi Sanjay Kumar, and the perception of softening its stance against the BRS. sources

Congress seeks revenge in Madhya Pradesh, BJP aims 5th win

The counting of votes for the Madhya Pradesh election is underway, with the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress in a two-way fight for the state. The BJP has the advantage on paper, having won three of the last four elections in the state. Exit polls also predict a victory for the BJP by large margins. However, the Congress is confident it can upset its rival's chances, despite only four exit polls predicting a return close to the 116+ seats needed to form the government. The election is seen as an opportunity for the Congress and its former Chief Minister Kamal Nath to seek redemption after losing power in 2020. The BJP, on the other hand, is relying on its 'Ladli Behna Yojana' scheme for women to win votes. The fight for the state government may end today, but the battle for the Lok Sabha seats is just beginning. sources

Peruvian Mummies Puzzle Analysts with Unknown Origins

Controversial journalist and UFO enthusiast Jose Jaime Maussan has presented a startling finding regarding the mysterious mummified remains discovered in Peru. A recent DNA analysis revealed that 30% of the genetic makeup of these "non-human" corpses is not from any known species. The bodies, claimed to be 1,000-year-old fossilised remains of aliens, have sparked speculation about their origins. The authenticity of the mummies, which have three toes, has been affirmed by Maussan and Mexican researchers. They stated that the DNA unrelated to known species proves that these specimens do not belong to terrestrial evolution. Maussan emphasized that this is the first time extraterrestrial life has been presented in this manner and that the public has the right to know about non-human technology and beings. He believes that this discovery unites humanity and proves that we are not alone in the universe. sources
