last year However he is yet to be nominated to the Assembly — a prerequisite that has to be fulfilled within six months of one becoming a minister The deadline ends on April 30 If Ramoowalia has to continue as a minister he has to become a member of the Assembly by April 30 On October 31 last year Akhilesh had surprised everyone by inducting Ramoowalia as a minister At that time he was not a member of either houses of the Assembly Ramoowalia who had resigned from SAD just a few hours before taking oath as a minister was given the charge of the prisons department which he holds till date Share This Article Related Article Article 164 of the Constitution’s Section 4 stated: “A minister who for any period of six consecutive months is not a member of the legislature of the state shall at the expiration of that period cease to be a minister” At present the only option that the government seems to have is to nominate Ramoowalia to one of the six vacant seats in the legislative council These seats are to be filled through nomination Five of these seats are vacant since May last year as Governor Ram Naik had refused to clear names proposed by the government citing objections and the rule book After repeatedly asking Akhilesh to suggest fresh names as required by the Constitution under fields for nomination — literature art social service science and co-operative movement — Naik had returned the file on March 28 making it clear that the suggested names did not conform to these categories and thus were not acceptable Meanwhile another legislative council seat which is to be filled through nomination had fallen vacant on April 7 The term of 13 council members will also end on July 6 Moreover a senior official said that after April 30 when Ramoowalia ceases to be a minister the government has the option of 1re-nominating him This will get the government another six months to send Ramoowalia to the Assembly He however added: “But a lot of explaining will be required… this will also be open for litigation” When contacted Ramoowalia said: “The chief minister will take a call and I have full faith in him I have worked honestly…” Sources said the government is very cautious this time and Akhilesh is likely to personally take fresh names to the Governor Naik who is currently in Mumbai is set to return on Wednesday Sources said Akhilesh has already sought time from Naik for a meeting Asked about Ramoowalia’s case Naik said: “There is still time till April 30 So I will first wait till April 30 for a response from the government” WATCH INDIAN EXPRESS

first-ever diving gold (Source: AP) Top News The path to the Olympic podium for British athletes begins with the selection of six numbers Every time a Briton fills in a lottery slip and hands over two pounds ($260) the country moves closer to another Olympic medal And medals of every hue are now in the possession of athletes sporting the union jack flag It wasn’t always like this The Olympics used to be just like the World Cup for Britain’s soccer teams: Stories of near-misses plucky losers and embarrassment But funding from the National Lottery has fueled the transformation of British sports from the nadir of the 1996 Olympics Britain left Atlanta with a single gold among 15 medals stranded in 36th place in the standings Team GB as it’s now known ranked second in the medals table as the Rio de Janeiro Games entered their final day It’s been the best games for Britain since 1908 with China squeezed out of second place and only the United States ahead Jack Laugher and Chris Mears claimed Britain’s first-ever diving gold and Max Whitlock became the country’s first Olympic gymnastics champion All 14 British cyclists who competed won medals The swimmers enjoyed their best games in more than 30 years “This is not happening by chance” Simon Timson performance director at UK Sport said “This is success by design It’s the result of 18 years of consistent coherent and targeted National Lottery investment “The partnership we have with the British Olympic Association and the money we’ve invested into the Team GB’s final preparations is one of those elements of success by design” UK Sport is the government agency that allocates cash from the state and the lottery to Olympic and Paralympic sport The lottery was launched in 1994 two years before the debacle of Atlanta left British athletes scurrying back into Britain with no fanfare The discussion now is where to hold the victory parade Manchester in northern England is displacing London for the bus tour this year a chance to display the gold silver and bronze medals that have briefly reunited a nation divided by the referendum vote to leave the European Union in June It was a British prime minister whose reign was defined at the time by divisions over Europe who created the lottery that spurred the sporting success John Major’s “greatest achievement was to change the face of sport” in the country IAAF President Sebastian Coe the double-Olympic middle-distance champion has said In the last year 20 percent of lottery funds were injected into sports “The whole idea of the lottery was to create the opportunities for Cinderella sports (where competitors achieve more than expected) to be properly funded and I think by and large it has done well” said David Mellor who was sports minister in the Major administration in the 1990s For Mellor Whitlock is the type of person “who would have gone to his grave 30 years ago never knowing he had that talent” Investing in talent searches facilities and coaching allows Britain to unearth those whose sporting ability never found a competitive outlet Those who make it into Team GB then benefit from the expertise of the leading coaches and world-class facilities Before the lottery many representing Britain had to scrape a living to fund their sporting dreams As funding has increased so has Britain’s medal haul: In the buildup to the 2000 Sydney Games 589 million pounds ($77 million) was invested in 13 sports Britain finished 10th with 28 medals including 11 golds Before the 2004 Athens Games 71 million pounds was invested in 16 sports producing another 10th place finish but with 30 medals including nine golds Hiking the cash to 235 million pounds across 27 sports once UK Sport became responsible for investment in development led to a surge to fourth place in Beijing in 2008 Among 47 medals 19 were gold Much was focused on a successful London Games in 2012 The athletes justified the 264 million pounds spread across 27 sports by securing third spot ahead of Russia with 65 medals including 29 golds “Most nations invest in two- or four-year projects” Timson said “We invest in athletes and coaches and support staff in eight-year pathways” The cash isn’t dispersed frivolously Sports that don’t meet pre-games medal targets can have their funding cut There is criticism of a system that churns out cash to produce results at the elite level rather than targeting more handouts at grassroots facilities to boost grassroots participation “A relatively small number of sports feature regularly on prime time TV so for many the Olympic Games is the moment that catapults them onto the screens of the nation” Sport England chief executive Jennie Price said “We need to capitalize on that” Britain used to rule through the world

of the demanding Christmas schedule which forced his side to play two matches in less than 48 hours last weekend beating Manchester City 1-0 on the Saturday before conceding two penalties in a 2-2 draw at Sunderland File photo of Jurgen Klopp AFP He also has to consider the fact Liverpool play the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at Southampton on Wednesday meaning rotation to keep players fresh is inevitable Klopp has indicated Loris Karius dropped midway through last month after mistakes brought heavy criticism will return in goal in order to give Simon Mignolet a breather "There is a big chance Loris will play" said Klopp "He has been training outstandingly well which is good to see "It’s difficult to speak about these things in public because it becomes a story but we cannot ignore the pressure you make "That’s how it is we have to cope with it deal with it "That is why you see I made the change and I am sure Loris will benefit from this step back or step aside "Simon has done a really really outstanding job for us since he’s been playing again and forced Loris to train at the highest level because we have two really good goalkeepers It was good for him" ‘No one will be daunted’ Klopp will also rest a number of key first-team players who picked up relatively minor injuries during or before the holiday period including James Milner Jordan Henderson Joel Matip and Daniel Sturridge It means there will be opportunities for players who have largely been on the fringes such as midfielder Kevin Stewart and for young players seeking to gain match experience such as defender Trent Alexander-Arnold At least unlike a year ago Liverpool start their FA Cup third-round tie with home advantage That ought to give Klopp a chance of avoiding the scares of last season when
