 ‘PM seems to have got my message’

UDUPI (KARNATAKA): A day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asserted that it was the “right time” to move decisively to curb corruption, BJP leader LK Advani on Monday said that his message of “enough is enough” seems to have gone across to the PM also.”I thought the message in the theme song (‘Ab bas’) of Jan Chet na Yatra was intended for the public and to awaken them against corruption, but it seems to have reached Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also, as he has now started saying that ‘it is time to fight against corruption’,” Advani said while addressing a public rally here.The BJP leader questioned why it took “all these years” for the prime minister to realise the need to fight corruption.”Why did he not realise this all these years. It seems my message of enough is enough through the yatra theme song has finally reached him now.”(PTI)

 Maoists kill three

RANCHI: Maoists brutally killed three persons, beheading one, crushing another’s head with a stone and shooting dead a police informer in Jharkhand’s Khunti district. Three Maoists barged into the house of police informer Iswari Tuti at Marangada village and shot him dead last evening, Khunti Superintendent of Police Manoj Kaushik told PTI over phone. Tuti tried to run towards a nearby CRPF camp in the village, but he was shot down by bullets fired by the Maoists pursuing him, Kaushik said. The SP said Tuti was not a special police officer. Maoists decapitated another man, Sukram Munda, and took his head away at Raja bazar, he said. A note left beside the headless body claimed that he was involved in murder, rape and robbery in the area and others like him would also meet the same fate, the SP said. Maoists also crushed the head of an unidentified man near Naditola on Sunday night, he said. On a tip off, a joint team of the CRPF and the police led by SP, Ranchi, A V Minch, found two can bombs weighing 40 kg and 10 kg at Gajmara-Tolsadih on the borders of the district yesterday, Senior Superintendent of Police Saket Kumar Singh said.
