Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take up the role of a “caped crusader” against corruption by launching a new online portal for public grievances.

PMO will replace the existing public web interface with a new portal called, “PRAGATI”. The online portal is getting launched along with prime minister`s monthly program of video-conferencing with union and chief secretaries.

The new portal will consist of nine sub-categories to register different matters of concern related to corruption within various government departments. The departments listed under the category of corruption are telecom, railways, department of financial services, ministry of power, petroleum, heavy industries, urban development, road transport, rural development and others.

The users also have the option of being more specific with their complaints. For example, harassment is sub-categorized into SC/ST, women, children, differently-abled. This gives people the freedom to expressing their problems and get heard too. There is also a category called ‘Police’ and it will also have sub categories.

Finally the PM will look into the issues addressed by relevant departments and discuss the loopholes with concerned departments through video conferencing on every third Wednesday of the month. He will follow up every issue until the complainer is satisfied and the issue is closed.

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
