Vijayawada: Senior officials of the AP commercial taxes department (CTD) have gone all out to safeguard the interests of Telugu Desam MLC P. Ashok Babu, a bitter critic of Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Ignoring all evidence available on record, the CTD gave a clean chit to Ashok Babu in a Lokayukta case. State GST commissioner Peeyush Kumar even wrote to its registrar to drop further action on a complaint filed against the MLC.
Making things more embarrassing for the ruling dispensation, the CTD on Saturday illegally transferred the complainant in the case, B. Meher Kumar, GST officer and president of the AP Commercial Taxes NGOs Association. Meher approached the Lokayukta against the TD MLC after the YSR Congress took the reins of the government.
“Transfer of the complainant along with four others is a clear case of witch hunting because he questioned the previous inquiry conducted by senior officials into Ashok Babu’s case and approached the Lokayukta against them,” alleged K.R. Suryanarayana, president of the AP Government Employees Association. The transfer of Meher Kumar and others to any district other than Krishna is a clear violation of the Presidential Order, he pointed out.
Inquiries revealed that Ashok Babu had applied for voluntary retirement just before filing his nomination paper as MLC during the Chandrababu Naidu regime. There were allegations about his wrong claims of education qualification and pending criminal cases but the then inquiry officer looked the other way and a gave clean chit to Ashok Babu, facilitating his retirement from service and contesting the Legislative Council elections.
Meher Kumar approached the Lokayukta stating that Ashok Babu had wrongly claimed that he was a graduate and had mentioned in his election affidavit his pending criminal cases while the department had concluded that there were no pending cases. Meher Kumar also produced evidence to establish that Ashok Babu was engaged in political activity including campaigning for the Congress against the BJP in the Karnataka Assembly elections.

A group of 12 super clubs have officially confirmed their plans to form a breakaway Super League, despite the threat of stern action by UEFA.
The governing body of European football was due to approve Champions League reform plans at Monday’s meeting of the executive committee.
But a shock move from some of the world’s biggest clubs threw the plans into chaos.
The so-called ‘Big Six’ of the English Premier League have signed on to a plan to form a breakaway league.
A closed shop league has long been the dream of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, and both his club and Barcelona are backing the plan.
Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are also on board, as are Atletico Madrid, Inter and Milan.
Andrea Agnelli, head of the European Club Association, was one of the main driving forces behind the Champions League reforms which will be voted on at the executive committee meeting.
He has always insisted that he does not want a closed shop, but Agnelli’s club Juventus are also backing the plan.
Announcing the move the 12 clubs said: “Twelve prestigious European clubs today jointly announce an agreement to form a new midweek football competition, the Super League, governed by the founding clubs.
“AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atletico de Madrid, Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, Juventus FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur have all joined as founding clubs.
“Three more clubs are expected to join as founding clubs before the inaugural season, which is expected to start as soon as possible.
“In the future, the founding clubs look forward to consulting with UEFA and FIFA in order to work together and cooperate to acheive the best possible outcome for the new league and for football as a whole.
“The formation of the Super League comes at a time when the global pandemic has accelerated the instability in the existing European football economic model. Further, for a number of years, the Founding Clubs have had the objective of improving the quality and intensity of existing European competitions throughout each season, and of creating a format for top clubs and players to compete on a regular basis.
“The pandemic has shown that a strategic vision and a sustainable commercial approach are required to enhance value and support for the benefit of the entire European football pyramid. In recent months extensive dialogue has taken place with football stakeholders regarding the future format of European competitions. The Founding Clubs believe the solutions proposed following these talks do not solve fundamental issues, including the need to provide higher-quality matches and additional financial resources for the overall football pyramid.”
The plan is backed by US bank JP Morgan Chase, which is willing to invest around £5bn set against future television revenues.
There would be 20 participating clubs with 15 founding clubs and a qualifying mechanism for a further five teams to qualify annually based on achievements in the prior season.
Perez, who has been elected chairman of the new league, said: “We will help football at every level and take it to its rightful place in the world. Football is the only global sport in the world with more than four billion fans and our responsibility as big clubs is to respond to their desires.”
Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer added: “By bringing together the world’s greatest clubs and players to play each other throughout the season, the Super League will open a new chapter for European football, ensuring world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid.”
Broadcaster DAZN is believed to be ready to pay £3bn for the rights, with the competition to begin in 2022, but the 12 face a fight with UEFA and their own domestic leagues.
A statement signed by the European governing body, the English, Spanish and Italian FAs, as well as the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A, warned: “We will consider all measures available to us, at all levels, both judicial and sporting in order to prevent this happening. Football is based on open competitions and sporting merit; it cannot be any other way.
“As previously announced by FIFA and the six Confederations, the clubs concerned will be banned from playing in any other competition at domestic, European or world level, and their players could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams.
“We thank those clubs in other countries, especially the French and German clubs, who have refused to sign up to this. We call on all lovers of football, supporters and politicians, to join us in fighting against such a project if it were to be announced. This persistent self-interest of a few has been going on for too long. Enough is enough.”
And leading figures both inside football and out have spoken out against the plans.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Plans for a European Super League would be very damaging for football and we support football authorities in taking action.
“They would strike at the heart of the domestic game, and will concern fans across the country.
“The clubs involved must answer to their fans and the wider footballing community before taking any further steps.”
And Manchester United’s legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson also slammed the plans.
He told Reuters: “Talk of a Super League is a move away from 70 years of European club football. Both as a player for a provincial team Dunfermline in the 60s and as a manager at Aberdeen winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup, for a small provincial club in Scotland it was like climbing Mount Everest.
“Everton are spending £500 million to build a new stadium with the ambition to play in Champions League. Fans all over love the competition as it is
“In my time at United, we played in four Champions League finals and they were always the most special of nights.”
No French side has signed up, and the French FA also came out against the plans.
A statement said: “The FFF and the FLP oppose the whole project relating to the European Super League. Alongside UEFA, the FFF and FLP are positioned firmly against a project that threatens the entire pyramid of European football.
“The hegemonic dreams of an oligarchy will result in the disappearance of a European system that has allowed football to develop in an unprecedented way in Europe.
“By breaking this balance, the Super League project will put an end to a system based on sporting merit and which has been able to put in place mechanisms of solidarity with all the European federations.”
And even the ECA, of which Agnelli was head, made clear it “supports a commitment to work with UEFA on a renewed structure for European club football”.
Perhaps unsurprisingly the Juve chief resigned his position shortly after the statement as his club left the organisation.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said top Democrat officials are openly inciting riots in response to calls for violence by Maxine Waters. In a tweet Sunday, the Texas senator said Democrats are supporting far-left terror groups to tear apart the American society.
Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence.
They want to tear us apart.
“’We gotta stay on the street,’ Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed ‘to get more confrontational’ & they should ignore the curfew in place.” https://t.co/PWW7YNDbKR
“Today’s Democrats are beholden to the far left voices that they made to the far left,” Cruz stated. “Today’s Democrats are about power. So if the rules stand in the way, the heck with the rules, ignore them.”
A @MNNationalGuard and @MinneapolisPD neighborhood security team was fired upon early Sunday morning in a drive-by shooting near Penn Avenue and Broadway in Minneapolis.

Chris Scott has declared Geelong’s boom off-season recruit Jeremy Cameron ready to play, ahead of the Cats’ tough task against West Coast in round six.
The former GWS forward and 2019 Coleman Medal winner has been battling hamstring injuries since joining the Cats but Scott said it was time to unleash him into the forward 50 in the blue and white hoops.
“Ready to go. He’s in,” Scott said.
“I am also putting a bit of pressure on our medical and conditioning staff. It is about time,” Scott then joked.
Cameron’s arrival would be perfect timing given the Eagles boast one of the strongest aerial defensive units in the competition.
The dual All-Australian would also be a much needed boost for the Cats, who were again not great in their win over bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne at GMHBA Stadium on Sunday. The coach had said last week that the club were being deliberately cautious with their new star.
Geelong missed a lot of opportunities and were poor kicking inside 50, but given the amount of possession and chances they had ended up over-running the young North side.
“We were still going OK statistically in the first quarter,” Scott said. “I would like to say we started executing better [but] I don’t think it was that, I think it was the weight of numbers [chances].
“If you looked at the numbers overall you’d be happy … a lot of shots, a lot of inside 50s, a lot of possession, a lot of the numbers looked positive.

Brisbane City Council will review the fine print of its Go Between Bridge toll credit scheme after residents found even utes and vans being used in a private capacity were being excluded despite the council’s insistence otherwise.
The subsidy was rolled out alongside the closure of nearby Victoria Bridge to general traffic in late January as part of the $1.2 billion Brisbane Metro project to help residents south of the CBD with the potential increased cost of crossing the river.
But soon after applying, some residents found they were unable to access the credit because terms and conditions meant only vehicles considered a passenger car or motorcycle under state registration were eligible.
Emails to residents and the Gabba ward office from the council’s transport network operations team, seen by Brisbane Times told, highlighted this excluded all vehicles registered as “light commercial/van”.
This was despite infrastructure committee chair David McLachlan insisting the scheme, which fewer than 1000 people had applied for, extended to utes and vans provided they were used for non-commercial reasons.
Cr McLachlan has now conceded that due to the Transport and Main Roads Department vehicle classifications, some residents were unable to access the subsidy.
“Council is reviewing these conditions and, in the interim, has already begun ensuring affected eligible residents receive their toll credit as soon as possible,” he said.
Those in the 4101 postcode suburbs of Highgate Hill, South Brisbane and West End could be granted the $100 annual credit, which would be added to their Linkt account and reviewed each year for a maximum of four years. The council then pays this subsidy to administrator Transurban.
Despite calls from Transport Minister Mark Bailey for the scheme to also be extended to those with less than six months on their tenancy agreements in the renter-heavy suburb, Cr McLachlan said there would be no change to that condition.

It is a reflex that parents should fight, and instead allow their young children more autonomy and opportunity to attempt things themselves and avoid becoming ‘lawnmower’ parents according to education specialists and child psychologists.
There is some sympathy for well-meaning parents though.
“Poor parents are constantly called names like helicopter parents, lawnmower parents, bulldozer parents, snow-plough parents,” Rosine McAlpine, creator of the Win Win Parenting Program, told ABC Radio Brisbane.
“What these terms are all referring to is the way in which they parent.
“You know when the lawn’s tall and it’s hard to walk through? As soon as you mow the lawn, it’s much easier to pass through.
Sunshine Coast prep teacher Jennifer* said she was seeing the well-intentioned parental trait cement itself well after the first few weeks of school.

A 6-0 thrashing by crosstown rivals Melbourne City did not do it, but a 7-0 hiding from the same team has ended Grant Brebner’s troubled time as Victory coach.
The once-proud Victory confirmed within hours of Saturday night’s second record mauling this season by City that Brebner’s 16-match stint as head coach was over.
The writing was on the wall after Socceroo striker Jamie Maclaren scored five goals at AAMI Park as City romped to the top of the ladder in emphatic fashion.
Shortly after the humiliation, Victory chairman Anthony Di Pietro confirmed Brebner’s time was up.
“It is in the best interests of everyone involved — the club, Grant as a person — we just wanted to make that clear,” Di Pietro said.
“Things haven’t worked out for a multitude of reasons and there will be a review, clearly, of everything that has happened to lead to this.”
Brebner, who enjoyed a storied playing career with the Victory that included two championships and two premierships, said his position was no longer tenable after such a horrific campaign at the helm.
“Sadly, my expectations and the club’s expectations are a lot higher than the position we sit,” he said.
“The conversation the chairman and I had, we both were on the same path.
“From my perspective, this club will go on and this club will come back bigger and better than the situation we’re in just now.”
Di Pietro said it was undecided at this stage who would take the reigns on an interim basis with a decision to be made in coming days.
Saturday night’s match began brightly for Victory before Andrew Nabbout’s 11th-minute opener for City started another nightmare for Brebner’s last-placed team.
Captain Adama Traore saw red on the half-hour mark for a thigh-high challenge on Nabbout and could face an extended ban after making contact with referee Chris Beath’s arm as he argued the decision.
Nabbout then won a penalty, which began Maclaren’s amazing night.
The 27-year-old, playing in his 50th match for City, added four more in the second half to take his tally for the season to 19.
It is just the second time in A-League history a player has scored five goals in a single game, after Victory legend Archie Thompson’s remarkable display in the 2006/07 grand final against Adelaide United.
While Victory are at an all-time low, City’s win lifts them to the top of the table.
But coach Patrick Kisnorbo was eager to emphasise his team was yet to achieve their goals for the year.
“Just because of the result, there are still things that need to be done,” Kisnorbo said.
“It’s a long season. We need to keep working.
“We need to work harder, we need to be more efficient, to improve. There’s no way we’re getting ahead of ourselves.”
