Rajbhar learns a lesson

Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party chief Om Prakash Rajbhar might have realised his party’s political standing in UP, especially in the eastern region, after the civic polls. Rajbhar had decided to go it alone in the urban local body polls. His party had entered the mayoral fray against the BJP but its candidate bit the dust. Rajbhar may have realised his party cannot get far without ally BJP.

Out-of-turn promotion

To boost the morale of police personnel in strife-torn areas, the Chhattisgarh government has promoted 91 cops out of turn, including 15 sub-inspectors and six assistant sub-inspectors, for their courage and outstanding work. As many as 16 head constables were promoted to assistant sub-inspector rank and 54 constables to head constables.

He might just land in hot water because senior IPS officers have got whiff of his doings.
