services on Line 2 File photo of Delhi metro AFP "NSUI Delhi president Akshay along with two other activists stopped the metro due to the unjustified fare hike We demand that the proposed hike be rolled back and students be provided subsidised passes" an NSUI spokesperson said The Delhi government has been opposing the fare hike with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal even offering to take over the operations of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) The Centre however told the Delhi government it would need to pay Rs 3000 crore annually for five years if it wanted to stop the metro fare hike

their history There were no clouds of uncertainty hanging around the Indian team in the Bangladesh capital They went unbeaten; the 1-1 draw against South Korea did ruffle feathers But now the Dutchman wants to consolidate Marijne comes across as realistic and does believe in the knowledge that this Indian team is yet to break into the top three So when the Indian team for the Hockey World League Final was announced on Friday a few names which were not on the list caught the eye – former Indian captain and the team’s talisman for long Sardar Singh the ever-dependable Surender Kumar as right back Ramandeep Singh as the centre-forward and in the half-line Satbir Singh The word ‘drop’ has multiple implications when it comes to team sport In this case Marijne clearly says the players not included in the national team for the Hockey World League Finals are still a part of the core group of 25-26 players and Bhubaneshwar would be a testing ground to try out various combinations to get the best balance in the team File photo of Sjoerd Marijne Twitter/@TheHockeyIndia Importantly coming into the team are players like Birender Lakra Rupinder Pal Singh and Mandeep Singh the first two from injuries Lakra’s comeback gives the team solidity at the back simply because he is one of the safest players when it comes to using skills with game awareness Marijne’s response to bringing in a new set of players for a tournament as important as the Hockey World League Finals was: “Yes there is always a reason I wanted to see the balance between Harmanpreet Singh and Lakra and also Rupinder” On Surender’s exclusion considered by many as one of the best defenders in the country Marijne says “He needs to perform better and improve” There wouldn’t have been a deadlock on Satbir as Kothajit Singh eases himself into the midfield position It does come with a rider though from the national coach: “The midfield needs to be more consistent” Sjoerd also argues against the word ‘drop’ “They are getting rest but also remain inside the group as there is tremendous competition now for spots in the team Players are showing more consistency and you can see the quality also improve Players need to consistently improve” Probably that’s where Sardar not making it to the national team should come as a warning that the former star and Indian captain should tie his laces a little more tightly and accept the fact that juniors are gaining ground at the same pace as the sport Bringing back Lakra after a prolonged lay-off straight into a high-intensity World League where the pace would be killing is asking for trouble Lakra could have been eased into the low-key Asia Cup where he could have found his feet and not get saddled with the psychological baggage of an injury that may impel him to not take extra risks or push himself It could also be a reason for the team to go into the tournament with six defenders instead of midfielders and forwards Usually you would pick a midfielder with defending skills to fall back upon in case the need arises for an extra man in defence Or maybe Marijne is not too confident about his defence with promoted juniors like Dipsan Tirkey Varun Kumar and Amit Rohidas Varun did play solidly in Dhaka except for a few errors that happened because of inexperience when he got rattled with a few high balls giving away a crucial penalty corner in the final Malaysia didn’t punish the Indians But Australia Germany and England would Tirkey had a foil in Sardar during the Asia Cup where if he was bereft of channels to pass the ball he slid it towards Sardar Now of course he would have statemate Lakra to fall back upon if space and position are squeezed Not to say Tirkey doesn’t have the poise and balance But there is always a difference between the attacks of South Korea Malaysia Pakistan and Bangladesh when compared to Germany and Australia Sitting in Bengaluru while the team played the Asia Cup couldn’t have dramatically improved Lakra’s recovery But historically in Indian team selections questions do remain Marijne is clear that as a coach he would invest in the future In 2018 India play the Commonwealth Games Asian Games and the World Cup (in Bhubaneshwar) It’s important to win the Asian Games as that qualifies the national team directly for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Not that performing in the Hockey World League Finals is not required A semi-final spot here would push India’s ranking and ultimately give easier groups when the World Cup comes around It’s also important to perform in front of home fans Besides television audiences would be bigger and sponsors looking for a sport on the rise would look at the podium and how high India finished in a tournament being played at home Responsibilities increase when you play at home The Indian coach is however confident “The players take responsibility the quality of knowledge has improved there is a high quality of technical skills and it gives me a feeling in my stomach that there is a huge amount of potential in this team” says Marijne The Dutchman believes that India played at 60 percent to win the Asia Cup and there is a clear road map to increase work load and skill factor to break into the top four or top three “Whenever a nation wins the Junior World Cup it usually takes three-four years for the players to settle into their senior roles and now we have a nice mix of seniors and juniors with good penalty corner convertors and good goalkeepers” Back in Dhaka Marijne had said “I hate losing” And today he said “I didn’t come here to stay at No 6 The team has to grow” With Kothajit back in the side the midfield will also get more pace plus the Manipuri also has good skills in snatching the ball away apart from attacking down the flanks Mandeep after a disastrous Hockey World League Semi-finals in London where honestly the entire team didn’t do well will try and cement a place here He has the balance but also needs to understand the difference between being subtle looking good and scoring off the first touch or first hit In London he was caught out a few times trying to be cute inside the opposition striking circle especially against Canada and Malaysia which saw Indian hockey being stung by losses Hockey India’s high performance director David John believes this team is in the top two when it comes to fitness “The camp was all about recovery” he explained “After the Asia Cup the players were at the Surjit Memorial Tournament when we needed to help them recoup at the camp” John says there is no more an issue with fitness as the team is now pushing itself on skill efficiency “We can’t go into the striking circle 30 times and only score once” he says According to the Australian players are pushing forward trying to keep the ball in the front 25 With seven tournaments next year India’s focus will be on the Commonwealth Gamnes Asian Games and World Cup and hence the necessity to form a core group “You cannot have the same group of players playing everywhere” says John “There is high internal competition and in the future hard decisions will be taken on players” John believes the depth of the team is increasing and he cites Lakra as an example “He is not very fast compared to Sumit who is probably the fastest in the team But Lakra’s control is extraordinary” There is no doubt that there is a surfeit of talent Mixing them up to find the right combination for the bigger tournaments is what a coach’s expertise is all about Even though Marijne believes the Hockey World League Finals is not the litmus test “but a test” India need to maintain an upward trajectory Even the players seem to relish the challenge Absorbing tactical ideas being inventive creating a team that plays with ‘togetherness’ will ensure consistency which will help it graduate from being a stop-start World No 6 team Squad: Goalkeepers: Akash Anil Chikte Suraj Karkera Defenders: Harmanpreet Singh Amit Rohidas Dipsan Tirkey Varun Kumar

According to the UN nearly 400000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh since 25 August after fleeing a military crackdown launched by Myanmar’s military in response to attacks by Rohingya rebels

Rohingyas fleeing Myanmar Reuters "The government has decided to build 14000 shelters for some 400000 Rohingya" Bangladesh’s disaster management secretary Shah Kamal told AFP "We have been told to build the shelters in 10 days Each shelter will house six refugee families" he said adding the camp would have proper sanitation water and medical facilities"We would take help from the UN agencies" he said The government social welfare agency would take care of Rohingya children who had lost their parents in the violence or who arrived unaccompanied in Bangladesh he said A local rights expert slammed the government for the chaotic relief management saying fights were breaking out each time an aid truck arrived AFP correspondents on the scene have witnessed such incidents "Refugees are still pouring in But there is no attempt to bring discipline and order in the aid management There is a serious lack of coordination among the government and the agencies" Nur Khan Liton said "Still a lot of people are staying on the roadsides and in open space Some have managed to erect a tent others just sleeping under the open sky" The next danger he warned could be a health epidemic as at least one Rohingya boy had died of diarrhoea "The authorities must move quickly before it becomes an epidemic" UN officials acknowledge they were taken by surprise by the scale of the exodus The UN’s
