New Delhi: The Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on Tuesday resumed investigation in the Rs.100-crore transport scam even as the AAP asked its newly appointed chief to return to Delhi Police.

Reacting to the move, Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung issued a statement, citing the Justice Mukul Mudgal committee’s recommendations of not going for a high-level probe in the case.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government relieved Home Secretary Dharam Pal of his charge. The transfer order was sent to the Lt. Governor for his approval.

Sources said the move was taken in the wake of Pal notifying the appointment of M.K. Meena as the new ACB chief.

Jung on Monday appointed Meena as the head of the anti-graft wing. Meena, Joint Commissioner in Delhi Police, replaced S.S. Yadav who is additional commissioner of police.

The Aam Aadmi Party government on Tuesday asked him to return back to Delhi Police, but Meena refused.

“I am still holding charge because I have got the orders from the competent authority. We had conducted a meeting with all officers. Our action will be impartial,” he said.

In 2012, the ACB had registered a case in the alleged loss of Rs.100 crore to the Delhi government in awarding the contract of operation and maintenance of inspection and certification of CNG vehicles.

However, the then Sheila Dikshit government had denied permission to the ACB when it demanded to question certain officials.

In January 2014, the CBI initiated a preliminary inquiry in the case and was assured all help by the then Aam Aadmi Party government. But after Arvind Kejriwal resigned as chief minister in February 2014, the case got stuck again. (IANS)

Fortnite users look forward to new features

By Steve Carty

As we all know, Fortnite has been a very popular battle royale game for a very long time and this is only because of its building aspect. People only try or play this game because of the building aspect. No game has ever had this feature where you could build fight your opponent for high ground and all. It's crazy how they even thought of this. Fortnite has been around for many years now. There used to be a different map in Chapter 1. People were really mad when Fortnite changed the map. People had a sentimental feeling towards that map and thousands of players stopped playing the game and switched to Apex Legends.

Fortnite has a huge map with different pinned locations in it. It's a game that you can't master in a week or two. It can take months or even years depending on how much you practice. People spend hours in creative just to learn a new technique with the building. Some people have been playing since the launch of Fortnite and are still bad at the game. Yes! It's possible to be bad even after you practice a lot. I'd suggest you spend a lot of time in creative and just free build there to get good at it. Once you've mastered the art of building, you'll be good to go and can outbuild anyone for high ground. There is another thing called editing in this game. People use the latest working Fortnite hacks for this where it edits in 0.1 seconds. People won't even see you editing this and this will make you a step ahead of them and due to that, you can easily kill them before they even notice.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.
