Read full story As the world continues to experience unprecedented waves of migration, United Nations experts are highlighting the importance of regional solutions to ensure that people and societies can benefit from this global phenomenon. “Migration is a reality that crosses walls and barbed wire,” said Mohamed Ali Alhakim, the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). Speaking at its headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon at the opening of a two-day meeting on international migration, Mr. Alhakim stressed that to manage this transboundary reality, “regional and international cooperation must also cross borders.” As one of the five regional commissions of the United Nations, ESCWA serves as a think tank for its 18 Member States; it brings together experts who work at the regional level to tackle global challenges, while still considering different national realities. Helping countries achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been at the heart of its focus. “Is immigration not the oldest poverty reduction plan?” continued Mr Alhakim, noting that remittances in the Arab region amount to more than $50 billion a year, more than four times the official development assistance (ODA) received by Arab countries. Alongside its partners such as the International Organization for Migration (IOM), ESCWA is facilitating discussions on what should be prioritized for the Arab region in the Global Compact for Migration. This agreement, the first of its kind, is expected to offer solutions to better manage human mobility. “The Arab region is particularly important because it’s at the centre of much of the conflict, it’s a major labour migration area, and it’s also an area that has sent a lot of people elsewhere in the world particularly to Europe, many of whom encountered difficulties along the way,” explained William Lacy Swing, the Director General of IOM. In his address to the forum, he recalled that 3.5 per cent of the world population are international migrants who produce 9 per cent of the world’s global domestic product. That’s reportedly 4 per cent more than they would have produced if they had stayed at home. Meanwhile, Louise Arbour, the UN Special Representative for International Migration, highlighted how much of a challenge it will be for the global compact on migration to be relevant to everyone; in the Arab region alone, countries have very different economic, social and environmental profiles. “We know there are a lot of differences around the world but when you see such striking differences even within a region it brings home the idea that the compact is going to have to be very smart to have appeal and to be implementable,” she underlined. The next regional consultations on the global compact will be held in October in Addis Abba at the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), and then in November in Bangkok at the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP). This message was underlined by Louise Arbour, the United Nations Special Representative for International Migration, who was in Beirut, Lebanon, to address pressing issues related to the movement of people in the Arab region. Experts gathered midweek at the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) to identify ways of supporting the most vulnerable migrants. This information will feed into a new compact for migration to improve the situation of millions who have chosen – or felt forced – to leave their homes. “We know there are a lot of differences around the world but when you see such striking differences even within a region it brings home the idea that the compact is going to have to be very smart to have appeal and to be implementable,” Ms. Arbour underlined.

very soon? while Union minister Vayalar Ravi stated that people from all regions had to be consulted and a consensus evolved before a decision could be taken Such disparate claims and statements only add to the Telangana conundrum Another major impediment to arriving at a solution is the lack of direct communication between grassroot pro-Telangana groups like the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC)which organised the September 30 March and the million march last yearand the Congress at the Centre It was only recently that TJAC members met senior leaders like Ghulam Nabi AzadVayalar Ravi and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde for the first time Otherwisethey depend on Telangana Congress MPs to communicate with the high command Howeverit appears that Congress MPs from Telangana are not able to assert themselves and cut no ice with the decision-makers in Delhi They usually dash off to the AICC all charged up about the demand for a Telangana state but are handed a ticket back homealong with a few soothing words on the matter being under serious consideration As a regional political partythe TRS can spearhead the Telangana agitations but is unable to force the hand of the Congress The constitution of the Srikrishna Committee in 2009 bought time for the Congress to put off making a decision on Telangana The committee submitted its report in January 2011suggesting six options that were unacceptable to everyonewhich gave the Congress more reason for delay But the party also has its own reasons for treading gingerly on the matter Congress MPs and MLAs from coastal and Rayalaseema regions form a strong anti-Telangana pressure group They are especially opposed to Hyderabad becoming the capital of the proposed statemaking the whole issue a prickly one for the party The most convenient though highly debatable option for the Congress seems to be to let the stalemate continue janyalasrinivas@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

Hadapsar and Pune Express Top News THE MUCH-TOUTED Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) engine service between Pune and Daund is yet to see the light of the day despite availability of infrastructure and successful trial runs conducted by Pune Division The service which is expected to bring relief to those travelling between Pune and Daund everyday is awaiting a green signal from the Railway Board Watch What Else Is Making News After being in the pipeline for half a decade the work on electrification of the Pune-Daund section was completed in November 2016 A total sum of Rs 167 crore was spent on the project Officials said a nod from the ministry is also needed to finish smaller projects at the stations on these routes such as foot-over bridges increasing the height of platforms Earlier this year Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu’s visit to Pune had provided an impetus to the project The Pune Division has also received three DMU rakes to be used for the service “We have received three rakes of which two have undergone trials while trial of the third one will soon be carried out There should be no problem now if the service is started” said a Railway official When started the DMU service between Pune and Daund will prove beneficial to the residents of Daund Patas Kedgaon Yawat Uruli Devachi Mundhwa Hadapsar and Pune Most of the commuters either obtain a monthly pass or travel illegally in the long-distance trains on this route Harsha Shah of Railway Pravasi Group said the railway administration should expedite the inauguration of service as apart from causing inconvenience to the passengers in the suburbs the delay is also resulting in financial loss to the carrier “Everyday about 1000 to 1500 passengers can use the DMU service to travel between Pune and Daund or intermediate towns As months are going without the service railway is obviously losing lakhs of rupees per day” said Shah For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shubhra Gupta | New Delhi | Updated: May 12 2017 9:34 am Sarkar 3 movie review: Amitabh Bachchan shows the towering actor he can be but fails to rise above the way his Sarkar has been conceptualised Related News Sarkar 3 movie cast: Amitabh Bachchan Manoj Bajpayee Yami Gautam Jackie Shroff Amit Sadh Ronit Roy Rohini Hattangadi Sarkar 3 movie director: Ram Gopal Varma Sarkar 3 movie rating: 15 stars When was the last time Ram Gopal Varma made a half decent film Nine years back with the sequel of Sarkar called Sarkar Raj which I liked better than the original After that it’s been a steady slide downhill with just the odd film that held out a glimmer of the old Ramu You go into the third part of Sarkar in the hope that it will resurrect RGV But that’s not to be The best that can be said about Sarkar 3 is that it is not as terrible as Not A Love Story and no nowhere as ghastly as Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag That’s small consolation for a film though which toplines a heavyweight cast led by Amitabh Bachchan Manoj Bajpyee Jackie Shroff and helmed by a director who redefined both the gangster and horror genre in Indian cinema Sarkar 3 movie review: As Amitabh Bachchan’s vengeful grandson Amit Sadh is miscast in Sarkar 3 Sarkar 3 reunites us with the eponymous character of Subhash Nagre aka Sarkar a thinly disguised fictionalized version of Bal Thakeray which Amitabh Bachchan played first in 2005 Sarkar in his flowing black robes dramatically contrasting white beard rudraksh beads around the neck is both respected and feared by his constituency and his enemies: he is not an elected representative but wields as much if not more power than those who sit in the Mantralaya In the third part of the series the number of foes has risen and at each step a new challenger shows up This includes a thundering Manoj Bajpayee a crafty Rohini Hattangadi a madly vamping Jackie Shroff who is to be seen hanging out with a bikini-clad buxom babe for the most part and other sundries The previous editions of Sarkar worked because Bachchan was given worthy opponents and the semblance of a story Here RGV completely dispenses with such things as plot as he goes about getting his characters to mouth long-winded dialogues minus punch He also surrounds Bachchan with the earnest young Amit Sadh who is miscast as Shivaji the vengeful-grandson-who-would-be-Sarkar As his faithful lieutenant Ronit Roy is competent but familiar Where’s the novelty And just what is Yami Gautam doing in this film other than displaying heavily kohled eyes and some stray non-speaking scenes which don’t add up to anything Of what point is her poorly-sketched bit part Bachchan shows signs of the towering actor he can be but is captive to the way his Sarkar has been conceptualized and played: he declaims rather than speaks And there are moments where you can see flashes of the director RGV used to be when he pulled off films full of creative leaps and crazy flourishes Can RGV be
