The Catch Up: 9 May

The headlines today evening by the Indian Express.

 

TRANSCRIPT

This is the Catch Up on 3 Things for the Indian Express and I’m Damini Jaiman. 

It’s the 9th of May and here are the headlines.

According to the India Meteorological Department today, Cyclone Asani, which developed over the southeast regions of Bay of Bengal, has intensified into a ‘severe cyclone’. As per the projected cyclone movement track, the storm will reach close to the Andhra Pradesh-Odisha coast by tomorrow. It is unlikely to make a landfall and it could skirt the coastal districts of these states in the next two days.

Marking the 77th Victory Day celebrations, Russia President Vladimir Putin said today that the military action in Ukraine was a “timely” and “necessary” response to the West’s policies. Meanwhile, as many as 60 people are feared dead after a Russian bomb struck a village school in eastern Ukraine yesterday. In the latest effort to pressure Moscow into ending its aggression on Ukraine, leaders from the G-7 countries met online yesterday and announced their commitment to ban or phase out Russian oil imports.

Shaheen Bagh, which drew much attention during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in 2020 before the pandemic, saw a fresh anti-encroachment drive today by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation. However, it was halted after the local residents raised slogans standing in front of a bulldozer that arrived to raze the structures in the area. The Supreme Court refused to entertain a plea filed by the CPI(M) against the demolition drive, asking the party to approach the high court instead. It stated that if there is any violation of law, the Supreme Court will definitely step in. “But not at the behest of political parties like this,” 

Meanwhile, in a significant development, the Jammu and Kashmir tribal affairs department has provided a fleet of 40 load carriers for the transportation of nomadic tribes and their livestock during summer migration from the plains to various highland pastures. According to officials, the new transportation system will reduce the travel time from 20-30 days on foot to 1-2 days, prevent loss of livestock and aid traffic management. 

This was the Catch-up on 3 Things by The Indian Express.
