Will leave if trust vote not in favour, says Manjhi

Patna/Kanpur, Feb 13 (ANI): Days after his party showed him the doors, Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi on Friday said he will quit the CM's post if state Assembly voted against him. The regional Janata Dal United (JD-U) last week sacked Manjhi on charges of anti-party activities and named former chief minister Nitish Kumar as Manjhi's replacement. Kumar, along with party legislators who supported him, had met the President earlier this week to stake claim to form government after Bihar Governor, Keshari Nath Tripathi, did not take a call. Tripathi justified his decision accusing Kumar of indulging in "unconstitutional" means. Feb 13, 2015

UP professor's research on global warming included in US school syllabi

Gorakhpur, Feb 13 (ANI): Vice Chancellor of a university in Gorakhpur city of Uttar Pradesh has become the first person from the country to have his work on global warming included in the school syllabus in United States. An article by Vice Chancellor of Madan Mohan Malviya University of Technology, Professor Onkar Singh, has been included in a textbook titled 'Can Glacier and Ice Melt Be Reversed?' for students from class 10 to 12. This feat has got him a place in the Limca Book of Records, a catalogue of achievements made by Indians, at home and abroad, in diverse fields of human endeavour. The book covers various articles that talk about reasons causing global warming and the possible solutions to it. Speaking about global warming, Singh warns that the world would have to face dire consequences if immediate steps are not taken in this concern. Though Singh's article has made it to United States, but the Indian government is yet to take notice of his work. Feb 13, 2015
