New Delhi, Feb 17 (ANI): Political leaders on Tuesday react as RSS mouthpiece ‘Panchjanya’ said that Kiran Bedi was a mistake. The fortnightly issue has raised questions on the choice of Bedi as the chief ministerial candidate for Delhi even as it pointed out how ignoring party workers may have cost BJP in the polls. BJP leader Manoj Tiwari said that the party has taken many decisions for the polls some of which failed to deliver. AAP leader Atishi Marlena said that Bedi has been used and that Delhi has voted against divisive & communal politics. Congress leaders said that the RSS will soon start claiming that presenting Narendra Modi for the prime ministerial post was also a mistake. Meanwhile, JD (U) leader KC Tyagi that reverse counting for BJP has started from Delhi.

Supreme Court asks Prasar Bharti to Examine Launching New Channel to Telecast India's World Cup Matches
Srinagar, Feb 17 (ANI): The first android-based radio FM channel in Jammu and Kashmir is bringing in more listeners day by day. City FM JK was started in December 2014 by 28-year old mass communication graduate, Tariq Ahmad Salfi, and aimed specifically at the local audience. The radio station in Srinagar operates from a small room equipped with modest equipment like laptops and the odd sound mixer. But days after it was launched, Salfi was informed by his technical team that City FM JK radio waves had even penetrated other countries including the UK., US., Austria and Russia. Salfi has sold his car and invested a lot of his money in his humble project, one he says may be fast becoming at par with radio channels of business tycoons. He says his channel can also be an opportunity for employment in the valley. Despite poor internet connectivity in Kashmir, his local audience has grown; many claim his channel stands apart.

Coimbatore, Feb 17 (ANI): In a bid to rein in the number of fake passports, Indian government is working on to issue electronic passports or e-passports to the citizens by 2016, an official said in Coimbatore city. An e-passport will have a chip on its back cover with the holder's biometric details stored in it. In the initial phase which began in 2014, the government had issued 10 million e-passports, out of which majority were issued by Indian embassies abroad. From this year, the government is planning to introduce e-passport service across the country in 72 Passport Kendra Service (PSK). E-passports might be able to fully check the number of fake passports but it will certainly bring it down, said Swaminathan.
