Bhopal, May 6: A legislator of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Madhya Pradesh has found out a new way to prevent Hindu girls from falling in love and marring men of their choice.

According to Gopal Parmar, MLA from Agar constituency, if a Hindu girl falls in love with a Hindu man of her choice and marries her without parents’ permission, it should be considered elopement and if a Hindu girls marries a Muslim man it should be called ‘love jihad’, a term often used by communal hate mongers.

In an interview the hardline Hindtuva leader said that he supports early marriages because child marriages, including those involving grooms and brides who never saw each other before, used to last “forever”, unlike divorces that are commonplace today. 

“Earlier girls and boys used to marry before they turned 18 and 21. Marriages were fixed when they used to be of tender age, and did not go astray…or (they did not) think of anyone else. Now they meet at coaching classes and some fall prey to vices like ‘love jihad’,’’ he said.

Linking late marriages to the so called “love jihad”, the BJP leader said girls are “emotional” and that they “get carried away” when someone offers to help them by changing name and identity. 

“I married as a child, and I ensured that marriages of my children — two daughters and a son — were fixed before they attained the legal age of marriage,” said the 53-year-old MLA.

Mangaluru, Sep 16: The office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax (Administration) in Mangaluru will not be shifted to Goa, according to Mangaluru South MLA Vedavyas Kamath.

The statement comes following widespread opposition to the reported move of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to abolish the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax in Mangaluru and merge it with the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax, Panaji.

Speaking to media persons in the city today, the MLA claimed that there was no such proposal by the CBDT.

"The I-T office in Mangaluru has a principal commissioner, and so does the I-T office in Goa. There is a proposal to combine both the designations and appoint one principal commissioner. Under the circumstances, only the position of principal commissioner of Mangaluru may get shifted to Goa. But the news that the entire office in Mangaluru is getting merged with the office in Goa is far from the truth," he said.

Mangaluru, which is the administrative headquarters of the Dakshina Kannada district, is a commercial, industrial, educational, healthcare and start-up hub.

The four districts have received 228 mm of rains for the period of September 1 to 20 against the normal of 114 mm for the same period.

The district received 64.19 mm of rainfall for the 24 hour period as against 66.75 mm of rain received on Sunday. Bhagamandala that bore the brunt of nature’s fury last month resulting in a major landslip, continued to receive rains for the third consecutive day.
