Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

NAMES OF 82 FORMER PARLIAMENTARIANS STILL GLUING TO GOVERNMENT-ACCOMMODATIONS SHOULD BE MADE PUBLIC UNDER POLICY OF NAME-AND-SHAME COUPLED WITH FORCED EVICTION 

New Delhi:It refers to 82 former Parliamentarians still gluing to government-accommodations despite a parliamentary-panel ordering to cut their supply of electricity and water. Central government should adopt policy of Name-and-Shame to make their names public through media-advertisements cost of which should be deducted from their pension-amounts as part of cost involved in eviction-proceedings. Rule should be that in case former Parliamentarians and others do not themselves vacate government-accommodations within 90 days of losing entitlement, not only these should be forcefully vacated but also all such persons should lose right to contest any election in future. 

Market-rents for unlawfully retaining government-accommodations should be reviewed to match actual market-rents. Overstaying persons not paying such revised market-rents and any other pending dues like for telephone, electricity and water should also not be allowed to contest any election till they clear all their pending dues. Also there should be a system of auto-deduction of such government-dues from salaries and pensions of law-makers.

MAYANK VAID BREAKS WORLD RECORD...

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

MAYANK VAID BECOMES FIRST INDIAN TO COMPLETE ENDUROMAN TRIATHLON, BREAKS WORLD RECORD 

PARIS:Mayank Vaid the 42 year old Intellectual Property Director at Louis Vuitton, ace lawyer from India, currently based out of Hong Kong becomes the 44th person in the world and the first Indian to finish the Enduroman triathlon. 

Mayank Vaid completed the Enduroman — a triathlon from England to France which is considered to be one of the toughest endurance competitions in the world in record time. Vaid is the 44th person in the world to have completed this triathlon. He is also the first Asian person to complete this triathlon in solo capacity. 

Remarkably, Vaid has also broken the record for the shortest time taken to complete the ‘Enduroman – Arch to Arc’ triathlon. He completed the triathlon — involving running, swimming and cycling — in 50 hours and 24 minutes. The previous record for this triathlon was 52 hours and 30 minutes, held by Julien Deneyer of Belgium.

The triathlon started with a 140 km run from London’s Marble Arch to Dover on the Kent coast, then a cross-Channel swim (shortest distance 33.8 km) to the French coast, and finishes with a 289.7 km bike ride from Calais to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. 

Speaking to this reporter, Vaid said, “This is the longest point to point triathlon in the world. Only 44 persons have completed it so far. More people have climbed Mt. Everest. It is truly the toughest and most brutal triathlon in the world.” 

Asked to speak about the difficulties he faced in the course of his record run, he said, “The swim and bike sections were really hard. Especially going sleepless for more than 50 hours. The most challenging part is when a swimmer starts to see the French coast and that’s when the mind plays games. I was told by one of my swimming buddies, ‘when you see the coast don’t raise your head again to look for the coast. It’s a mirage. Keep swimming’.”

Noted socio-political leader and Chairman of SNSMT Shri. Suparno Satpathy in a tweet wrote "I have always been proud of my younger brother Mayank Vaid" 

Congratulatory messages for Mayank haven't been stopping. PM of India Shri. Narendra Modi as well as Sports Minister of India Shri. Kiren Rijiju too have congratulated.
