We won't hold discussions with the government under pressure." He also demanded to make a law on the minimum support price (MSP) of crop procurement.

CORONA METER INDIA TOTAL CASES: 1,08,15,687 TOTAL DEATH: 154,964 WORLD TOTAL CASES: 106,005,338 TOTAL DEATH: 2,311,040 KOLKATA: In an effort to weed out bogus voters and give accurate details of the polling process every two hours as prescribed in the Standard Operating Procedure, the Election Commission of India is likely to introduce Booth App - a self-designed integrated app of the ENCORE application is likely to be introduced in the West Bengal Assembly polls this year. Booth App facilitates faster identification of voters using encrypted QR code from the digital marked copy of the electors. This reduces the queue, helps in faster polling and allows error-free recording of two hourly poll turnouts with minimal intervention. The mobile application, which was piloted in the Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Maharashtra elections, was launched in 10 Assembly Constituencies of Jharkhand in November 2019. This app might be introduced in a larger way in the Assembly polls of the state slated in the next couple of months. The polling process requires manual search of the name of the electors from the book. The majority of the time in the polling station is spent on performing the search. Similarly, as per the Commission's prescription, every two hours, a report needs to be sent regarding the poll turnout. There are multiple errors due to incorrect entries and manual entries. Later on, there is a lot of hassle on reconciliation of the figures from EVM votes to the voter turnout. The Booth App helps in fast electors search in the polling station using QR code, advance Queue information to Voters used Artificial Intelligence, real-time Voter turnout information to voters and officials and assist Polling Officials in detection of duplicate voting. The whole process consists of the creation of encrypted QR code which is printed in the Photo Voter Slips. Citizens can alternatively download the digital photo voter slips from the Voter Helpline App. The voter presents with the QR coded slips at the reception of the polling Centre. The Booth level officer scans the QR code and allows entry of the voters whose names are listed. Inside the Polling Station, the polling official again scans the QR code to verify the identity of the voter before allowing the voter to poll. Polling Official marks the entry of the voter inside the polling station using the booth app in the mobile phone. The recorded entries are then transmitted back to the central server of the ECI. 300 people have been attacked in West Bengal. "When they can attack even us, I can understand the condition of the common people in Bengal. Enough is enough. No more injustice," he said. "People have decided to change the Government of 'PishiBhaipo' (aunt-nephew)," he added. Speaking after the event, Nadda said, the "huge crowd at the rally today shows that people of West Bengal have given permission to us (for holding yatras)". A PIL has been filed in the Calcutta High Court against the yatra citing concerns over COVID-19 and law and order situation in the State. 'Mamata Didi has done injustice to Bengal farmers' In Malda, Nadda criticized Banerjee for not implementing the Prime Minister's Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana in the State. "Didi has done injustice to the farmers in the State. She, in her stubbornness, ego and pride, did not roll out PM's Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana in West Bengal. This has kept over 70 lakh farmers deprived of its benefit," Nadda said while addressing in Malda. The BJP chief said that Mamata announced that she will also roll out the scheme in the State after when around 25 lakh people urged to the Centre for the matter and the elections were around the corner in the State. "When around 25 lakh people urged to the Centre, then Mamata ji said I will also implement Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. Mamata ji, elections are around the corner, what is the point repenting when the damage has already been done?" Nadda asked.

CMYK PAGE 10 MYANMAR BLOCKS ACCESS TO TWITTER, INSTAGRAM PAGE 11 ‘INDIA DEVELOPING 7 MORE COVID-19 VACCINES’ KOLKATA: Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Saturday said that the country is developing seven more COVID-19 vaccines and also working on further vaccine development to inoculate every citizen of India. He said the Centre does not have any immediate plan to make the vaccines available in the open market and a decision will be taken as the situation demands. The COVID-9 inoculation process for people aged above 50 will start in March, he told reporters. "We are not dependent only on the two vaccines as the country is working on seven more indigenous vaccines. "Simultaneously, we are also working on the development of more vaccines because India is a huge country and we need more players and research to reach out to everyone," he said. Three of the vaccines are in the trial phase, two are in the pre-clinical stage, one is in phase 1 and another in phase 2, the Union health minister said. "The COVID-19 inoculation process for people above 50 years of age will start next month," he said. "Presently, COVID-19 vaccines are being administered on an emergency basis, under full observation and in a controlled manner. If the vaccines are released in the open market, there won't be any control over them," he added. ‘Time for India to team up with Taiwan against China’ ‘TIME FOR TAIWAN’: CHINA DOES NOT SEEM GENUINELY INTERESTED IN DE-ESCALATING TENSIONS POST GALWAN TAIPEI: While India has given "appropriate response" to China over its attempt to transgress the Line of Actual Control (LAC), it is time to strengthen the Quad and join hands with like-minded countries such as Taiwan against Beijing. According to an article titled 'Time for Taiwan, India to team up' by Rahul Mishra, senior lecturer at the University of Malaya's Asia-Europe Institute in Kuala Lumpur, in Taipei Times, China's aggressive postures toward Taiwan and India increased over the past 10 years. He said that while 10 months have passed since the Galwan valley standoff and several rounds of peace talks have been held, China does not seem genuinely interested in deescalating tensions. On June 15 last year, 20 soldiers lost their lives in a clash with the Chinese troops in the Eastern Ladakh sector. On January 3, the Ministry of External Affairs said that India has given "appropriate response" to China over Beijing's attempt to transgress the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in several areas of the Western Sector of the India- China border. "From April-May last year, there had been an enhanced deployment of troops and armaments by the Chinese side in the border areas and along the LAC in the Western Sector. Since mid-May, the Chinese side attempted to transgress the LAC in several areas of the Western Sector of the India-China border area. These attempts were invariably met with an appropriate response from us," he said. However, according to the author of this article, "China's recent contravention of the confidence-building measure agreed upon on September 21 last year that neither side will send further troops to the front line proves it beyond doubt." He said that China has, instead, "consolidated its position in eastern Ladakh by deploying more troops, artillery and ammunition" and this contra- vention has cast doubt on the "sincerity of the entire dialogue and throws open several questions about China's territorial ambitions and strategic posturing toward India". He said the Galwan standoff was different from the 2017 Doklam standoff and the 2013 Daulat Beg Oldi standoff. One of the reasons cited is that the present China is much different from that of seven years ago as President Xi Jinping has centralised the power with "no checks and balances within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)". Under Xi's leadership, China has become "more assertive and confrontational". As China is aware of the challenges posed by India in Asia, Mishra says, "China's vulnerabilities with regard to the Dalai Lama and Tibetan government in exile, a dispute with Bhutan, and attempts to use Nepal against India as a strategic tool are all part of Beijing's long-term strategic designs". India was the first country to object to China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Besides, it was the only country to not send any of its representatives to BRI forums.
