Centre moves SC for relaxation on diesel taxis ban
The Central Government on Thursday moved the Supreme Court for relaxation on ban on diesel taxis in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR). The Centre told the apex court that the current ban on diesel cabs is affecting BPOs as they use large number of taxis, including the diesel ones to ferry their employees. It further states that the BPOs bring dollars of foreign exchange and this may go to other countries if the BPOs are not able to operate efficiently. The Supreme Court will hear the matter on May 9. Earlier, the Delhi Government sought two-day time from the Supreme Court to file a detailed roadmap on phasing out of diesel taxis. Stating that the order to ban diesel cabs from NCR has led to law and order problems, the Delhi Government had requested the apex court to implement the order in a phased manner. The apex court had asked the Delhi Government to give a roadmap as to how it plans to phase out diesel taxis and plan their conversion to CNG. Due to ban on diesel taxis, Delhi and NCR earlier this week faced heavy traffic jams with the protesting cab drivers blocking roads during the rush hours. The apex court had on April 30 refused to extend the deadline for conversion of diesel taxis into CNG even as the taxi owners pleaded there is no technology available in the market to convert their diesel cars into CNG.

Kasich to drop out of presidential race: report
Republican presidential candidate John Kasich, the last man standing in controversial billonaire Donald Trumps path to partys nomination, is withdrawing from the race to the White House, a media report here said today. Trumps main rival Texas Senator Ted Cruz dropped out of the race last night after his humiliating defeat in Indiana. The development, after Trumps decisive win in the Indiana primary, has vituallty sealed the real-estate tycoons position as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Kasichs campaign abruptly cancelled an event in the Washington area today and rescheduled a press conference in his his home state Ohios capital Columbus. "Governor Kasich will deliver a statement in Columbus, Ohio," the campaign said. Soon after, NBC news reported quoting his senior advisors that Kasich will suspend his presidential campaign. Kasich has so far won only one state - Ohio - and has only 153 delegates as against 1,047 by Trump. He is mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination outright. To be the nominee a candidate has to get at least 1,237 delegates. Now, Trump likely being the only candidate in the race, decks seems clear for him.
Last Republican Trump rival 'quits race'
John Kasich has dropped out of the presidential race after struggling to gain traction against Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Opposition tried to fail odd-even scheme: Arvind Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. (Photo: PTI) Kejriwal said the opposition was worried after Delhi govts scheme was praised by a noted international magazine. New Delhi: Taking a jibe at the foreign visits of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday alleged the opposition tried to ensure the failure of odd-even scheme as the initiative was being praised "world over". He said the opposition was worried after Delhi government's scheme was praised by a noted international magazine. "They had a fear. After the last odd-even, there were talks about it world over. Even Fortune magazine discussed about it.... (Modi) is going around the globe, but not being praised," he said, without taking Modi's name. "The AAP government people did not visit a single place, but even then they are being discussed world over. So they thought the odd-even scheme has to fail" Kejriwal said. He was speaking at the 'thanks-giving' event to celebrate the odd-even "success." Kejriwal said the opposition tried to ensure the failure of the scheme from day one. "They tried to orchestrate a strike of auto-drivers but all of them are with the AAP government and their (opposition) first attempt failed. "Then their MP (Vijay Goel) said that he will do a 'civil disobedience' movement and violate the odd-even scheme. Not a single person stood behind him, not even his party men. They resorted to setting fire in Bhalswa and Gazipur (dumpyards). All their attempts failed. Truth cannot be hidden," Kejriwal said.
