Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, laid the foundation stone for a war memorial in Ambala on Monday. The memorial is being constructed to honor the martyrs of India’s first War of Independence – the uprising of 1857.

The memorial will be spread in an area of 22 acres and will house facilities like library, conference hall, food court, an auditorium and various other modern facilities. Six theme parks will also be developed in the war memorial, which will display glorious Indian history before the arrival of the East India Company, the significance of Ambala in the 1857 revolution and its impact on the entire nation.

According to a news report, Khattar said, “The people, especially the youth, would get inspiration from the sacrifices made by our brave martyrs. Such unique memorial would also lend Amblala a new identity.”

He also declared that a ‘Shaheedi Mela’ will be celebrated on 10th May each year at the memorial.

California lawmakers have voted to make net neutrality state law, becoming the latest of several states to approve such measures.

The move by state legislators is a rejection of the Trump administration’s repeal of national net neutrality rules that did not allow internet service providers to discriminate in their handling of internet traffic.

It was first put in place by the Obama administration in 2015. When it was repealed, it opened the door for internet service providers to block content, slow data transmission, and create “fast lanes” for consumers who pay premiums.

If California Governor Jerry Brown signs net neutrality into law, the state could possibly face a legal fight from the Federal Communications Commission, which has declared that states cannot pass their own net neutrality rules.

Jonathan Spalter, president/CEO of the broadband industry group USTelecom, said in a statement that consumers want a “single, national approach to keeping our internet open,” instead of a “confusing patchwork of conflicting requirements.” (VOA)
