Pro and anti-Telangana supporters clash outside Andhra Bhawan in Delhi

New Delhi, Feb 05 (ANI): Scores of pro and anti-Telangana protesters broke into a scuffle outside Andhra Bhawan in New Delhi on Wednesday over the Telangana Bill, which is expected to be tabled in the current session of the Parliament that began today. Supporters from both sides of the divide were holding the protests outside the Andhra Bhawan when the scuffle began. The Centre is determined to introduce the bill in Parliament. After the cabinet's clearance, the bill will be sent to the President and then brought to Parliament for a debate and vote. However, the final session of Parliament got off to a noisy start today as Seemandhra and Telangana MPs sparred with each other on the floor of the two Houses as soon as they assembled for the day, forcing their adjournment for an hour.

Microsoft still 'very relevant': Microsoft's new CEO, Satya Nadella

California, Feb 5 (ANI): Microsoft Corp named 22-year company veteran Satya Nadella as its next chief executive officer and said co-founder Bill Gates would step down as chairman and advise the new CEO on technology, marking an epochal change of control at the company that drove the PC revolution. Nadella, a 46-year old born in India who led the creation of Microsoft's Internet-based, or "cloud" computing services, is only Microsoft's third CEO in 39 years, taking over from Steve Ballmer, who inherited the job from Gates in 2000. Nadella, who describes himself as a cricket and poetry lover, called the appointment "humbling" in an email to the company's employees. In a videotaped statement he said he would focus on "ruthlessly" removing any obstacles to innovation at the company. Feb 5, 2014
