early to speak about such things… We have done a lot of work — be it Metro Lucknow-Agra expressway and even on the law and order front” he told mediapersons On a lighter vein he added: “In case I get to know that a damaged road will affect my 1000 votes I would immediately get it repaired” Earlier addressing the administrative officers’ conference during the ongoing IAS week Akhilesh asked the officers to complete development projects so that Samajwadi Party could return to power in 2017 Share This Article Related Article He reminded them of the alleged humiliation they had to face during Mayawati regime when they were allowed to meet the then CM barefooted Akhilesh also spoke about the “freedom and respect” his government has given the officers and asked them to compare the same with

SP government and IAS week can make a come back Asking officers to sanction most funds in April Akhilesh said that by the end of the year as both he and they would be busy in election work now was the

NewsWritten by Pritha Chatterjee | Delhi | Published: January 24 2016 1:55 am Related News The Delhi government has introduced web-based monitoring of doctors and health workers where each government doctor in hospitals dispensaries and district health offices will have to enter their daily “performance” on a mobile application The notice on the system was circulated to heads of all institutions It states “the detailed work profile and output of all workers is proposed to be monitored” by the application that will help “rationalise human resources in various institutions in GNCTD” Senior officials said the project was rationalised after biometric systems put up in hospitals proved ineffective in managing duty hours “It was found that medical personnel were entering their attendance in the morning after working for the first half of the day and returning in the evening just before duty hours to mark their attendance again Through the app they have to justify what they did during their duty hours with specifics of tasks undertaken” said an official According to the app’s template doctors and health workers have to first enter if they are on or off duty each working day If they are working they have to enter the nature of work they perform — OPD ward and ICU rounds major or minor surgeries Doctors also have to enter academic work — whether they held lectures or bed-side classes The app also has a template for entering administrative work In each of these categories further details have to be entered such as number of patients seen in the OPD number of patients admitted in a ward or ICU and nature of surgeries performed For administrative duties doctors have to specify whether they attended meetings and if so how many the number of files they “disposed” off and other tasks Similarly they have to specify the number nature and duration of classes they took and the number of students who attended these lectures If employees are on leave they have to choose the off-duty option The app is available for download on Android and iOs According to officials this will help provide “employee activity and time-wise” data that will be generated and compiled by the software Heads of all institutions and departments will be able to access this data which has to be verified and sent to the Delhi State Health Mission on the first day of each month states the notice signed by an additional secretary monitoring health department Sources added that during meetings with resident doctors complaints were raised about senior doctors not being available on duty at all times As a result the burden of manning surgeries and OPDs falls largely on junior doctors “It was felt that the app would generally help us address these complaints by quantifying the duty hours of every doctor” added the official Meanwhile doctors in many hospitals have protested the move alleging that they are being singled out by the new system Though the system was supposed to be functional from January 20 few doctors have downloaded and started entering duty hours said sources “It is discriminatory to enforce such a system only for doctors and the health department The doctor-to-patient ratio in government hospitals can be seen by the crowd… We see hundreds of patients in OPDs alone” said a senior doctor at Lok Nayak hospital For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsThe United Nations (UN) has asked Pakistan to review the legislation relating to military courts that gives them the authority to impose the death penalty reform military courts to ensure fair trial and to ensure that coerced confessions are never admissible in legal proceedings after a recent first-ever UN review of the country’s record of implementing its civil and political rights The UN Human Rights Committee “notes with concern” that since Pakistan lifted the moratorium on death penalty in December 2014 it has been one of the states with the highest rate of executions and that the death penalty is given for crimes such as drug trafficking and blasphemy — even to juveniles and persons with psychosocial or intellectual disabilities — which do not fall under the category of most serious crimes Representational image Reuters Additionally “a policy of blanket refusal of clemency applications is allegedly in place…and that executions are allegedly carried out in a manner that constitutes torture or cruel inhuman or degrading punishment” Also Pakistani migrant workers under death sentence overseas have reported insufficient consular and legal services provided to them The UN Human Rights Committee is the body of independent experts that periodically monitors implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) of the state parties The ICCPR is a crucial multilateral treaty that came into force in 1976 and commits its ratifying parties to respect rights such as the right to life freedom of religion freedom of speech right to due process and fair trial among other rights Initially a government has to report to the UN within a year of acceding to the covenant after which its record is typically reviewed every four years by independent experts working under the aegis of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights The most recent review was held between 3 July and 28 July in Geneva where seven countries including Pakistan were reviewed Though Pakistan ratified the treaty in June 2010 its initial report to the committee was reviewed only this month Though the UN Committee “notes” the need for Pakistan to take measures for combating terrorism but is concerned that the current definition of ‘terrorism’ under the Anti-Terrorism Act is “very broad” and that confessions made in police custody are admitted as evidence in courts It recommends that Pakistan “review the legislation relating to the military courts with a view to abrogating their jurisdiction over civilians as well as their authority to impose the death penalty; reform the military courts to bring their proceedings into full conformity with Articles 14 and 15 of the covenant to ensure a fair trial” Also it asks Pakistan to “ensure that coerced confessions are never admissible in legal proceedings; take all measures necessary to prevent torture including by strengthening the training of judges prosecutors the police and military and security forces” Recently a Pakistani military court awarded death sentence to an Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav over alleged spying and has denied consular access to India despite many requests by New Delhi for the same This resulted in New Delhi dragging Pakistan to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) the ICJ has put a stay on Jadhav’s hanging pending its final decision The case has strained the already-troubled relations between the neighbours The UN body states that there are “various lists” that control the entry or exit in Pakistan including the infamous Exit Control List (ECL) but the UN has no information on such lists “including the criteria or grounds for the listing the process for listing or delisting names and the safeguards available to prevent misuse of these lists” A joint submission to the UN Committee by IFEX (a global network of 110 organisations to promote the freedom of expression) Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) and the International Network of Human Rights (RIDH) states in its report that in reality the ECL is an effective tool to suppress dissent The report cites the example of Cyril Almeida assistant editor of the daily Dawn who was placed on the ECL in October last year which barred him from travelling outside the country in retaliation for a story published the same month titled ‘Act against militants or face international isolation civilians tell military’ “that reported on a meeting of senior military officials and government leaders where concerns on connections between intelligence agencies and some militant organisations were raised” Almeida’s name was removed from the ECL four days later after intense pressure from the media and civil society groups The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and its authorised officers have “overbroad powers” “without sufficient independent judicial oversight mechanisms” observes the UN committee Also the mandatory mass retention of traffic data by service providers for a minimum of one year “unduly restrictive” licensing requirements of service providers; and “the sharing of information and cooperation with foreign governments without judicial authorization or oversight” are all issues of concern to the global body The IFEX-PPF-RIDH submission cites the instance of Islamabad High Court’s (IHC’s) order to the PTA on 27 February to block social media sites that are deemed to be blasphemous Similarly on 31 March 2017 the IHC “ordered PTA to remove all blasphemous content from the internet and requested extradition of the blogger who left the country” The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) exercises its powers over the content of media outlets including suspending over 20 programmes in the past four years “the lack of clarity on procedural safeguards and oversight mechanisms to ensure that PEMRA exercises its powers consistent with the principle of freedom of expression” and the “broad and vague grounds for cancellation of registration of these organisations” is a matter grave concern to the UN human rights experts Article 295- A of the Pakistani Constitution stipulates imprisonment of up to ten years and/or fine for “whoever with deliberate and malicious intention of outraging the religious feelings of any class of the citizens of Pakistan by words either spoken or written or by visible representations insults the religion or the religious beliefs” while Article 295- B stipulates life imprisonment for “whoever wilfully defiles damages or desecrates a copy of the Holy Qur’an” File image of Pakistani Army AFP In March 2017 Pakistan launched a media campaign cautioning people to exercise self-restraint in their online activities states the joint international NGOs’ submission The recently-deposed former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif “directed the state machinery to find those responsible for putting blasphemous content on social media and bring them to justice without delay” it further adds It also mentions the tragic case of Mashal Khan a Muslim student at the Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa who was killed by an angry mob in the premises of the university in April over false allegations of posting blasphemous content online Examples of website blocking mentioned in the joint submission include the July 2013 case of Al-Jazeera’s website being blocked after it published a document called “Pakistan’s Bin Laden Dossier” detailing the findings of a commission of inquiry established by Pakistan’s military and intelligence branches into the Bin Laden raid It also mentions the shutting down of the queer website: queerpk—which was the country’s first Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender website The UN Committee “regrets” the absence of information from the Pakistani delegation which was led by the Pakistani Minister for Human Rights Kamran Michael on effective measures to prevent and punish all forms of discriminations against lesbian gay bisexual transgender and intersex persons While the UN treaty-monitoring body welcomes the establishment of Pakistan’s National Commission for Human Rights in 2015 it is “concerned” that the commission was not given authorisation to travel to Geneva to meet the UN committee members giving indications that the commission is not fully independent The UN is also concerned that “the Constitution and federal laws as well as the jurisdiction of highest courts do not apply in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA)” Among other recommendations the UN Committee asks Pakistan to ensure that no juvenile or person with psychosocial or intellectual disabilities is executed or sentenced to death to repeal all blasphemy laws that the execution protocol is brought in line with international human rights standards to criminalise enforced disappearance and “put an end to the practice of enforced disappearance and secret detention” to review its legislation on data collection and surveillance to carry out the registration of undocumented Afghan refugees to decriminalise defamation and to review legal provisions relating to the freedom of expression and PEMRA The committee has asked Pakistan to submit its next periodic report by 28 July 2020 and “to include in that report information on the implementation of the present concluding observations” New Delhi: Abhinav
