Barmer: Many Pakistanis have been coming to India and settling down in different places. Among such Pakistanis who had come to India and living in Rajasthan’s border district of Barmer for the past 4 decades, 923 including 8 women, have been granted Indian citizenship.

M.L. Mehra, sub-divisional officer of Bikaner’s Godhamalavi district and incharge of the Camp where citizenship is granted, said that after central government’s authorisation to district collectors to grant Indian citizenship to Pakistani Muslims including women living in India, 813 persons were granted Indian citizenship in the first instance.

In the second stage 46 Pakistanis, including 3 Muslim women, were granted Indian citizenship. Similarly, in the Camp at Chauhatan, 64 persons including 5 Muslim women were granted Indian citizenship. 

Azamgarh: People of Phulpur Tahsil (Azamgarh) in large number sat on a dharna under the leadership of Shabana Azmi, film star and social worker against acute shortage of electricity wherein she demanded 24 hours supply of electricity to the people of Phulpur.

Later, she talked on telephone to responsible officers of electricity department at Lucknow who assured her of solving the problem of electricity within two days.

Krishna Nagar: A Multi-storeyed hostel building,, proposed to be jointly built by Waqf Board and state government on a Waqf land in Wakeelpara area of Krishna Nagar for women of rural areas was strongly opposed by Hindu tenants and other local people on the ground that a Muslim hostel cannot be allowed to be built in a Hindu area. The tenants, who are illegally settled on the Waqf land and against whom a case is going on in the court for two years have been asked by the court to vacate the place at the earliest have accused the caretaker of the Waqf land of establishing ‘Promoter Raj’. They are demanding compensation for vacating this place.
