It’s Saturday!Get your weekend started with the top 5 stories from today’s edition: Latest on Gujarat Assembly polls, how Rahul was able to rise above Pappu image; what to watch this weekend; and more. 1) Tensions are running high in Gujarat, where the high-stakes Assembly Election is just a few days away. Here are some of our top stories from the poll-bound state: 🔴 The election is set to see many key contests, but the one for minority votes is rather tepid, with major political parties circumspect about fielding Muslim candidates, as always. The Muslim community, which forms approximately nine per cent of the total population of Gujarat, says in one voice that it is “unexcited” about the polls, as “none of the parties” has ever lived up to their pre-poll promises or reached out to the community.🔴 Meanwhile, Isudan Gadhvi, Aam Aadmi Party’s chief ministerial face in Gujarat, speaks to The Indian Express about why his party won’t take its foot off the pedal. 🔴 We join 63-year-old Amit Popatlal Shah, the former mayor of Ahmedabad, as he hits the campaign trail across the Ellisbridge Assembly constituency. Shah is adamant the AAP won’t make a dent at any of Ahmedabad city’s 16 Assembly seats. He is also confident of personally winning by over 80,000 votes. Once elected, he has vowed to resolve all disputes related to the Disturbed Areas Act in the Paldi area of his constituency.2) In her weekly column, Neerja Chowdhury writes on how Rahul Gandhi was able to rise above the ‘Pappu’ image and strike a chord with his Bharat Jodo Yatra: “It goes without saying that the acid test of Rahul’s yatra will lie in winning elections. But, curiously, he has tried to delink the yatra from electoral gains, not to appear power hungry —but this makes little sense. A political party is nothing if it cannot win elections and deliver on its promises.”3) Days after the Jama Masjid authorities announced and then quickly revoked a ban on ‘unaccompanied women’ visiting the mosque, Yashee writes: “When I heard women would no longer be allowed to enter the mosque alone, I felt a personal loss. The questionable logic of the now-rescinded order aside — it wanted to stop girls who “give time to men, do wrong things”; why not ban the men “taking” time from women? — I was also aghast at how little the order seemed to understand Jama Masjid.”4) Express at FIFA World Cup 2022: Two teams locked against each other with a five-man backline is bound to produce a turgid affair, even if both have adequate attacking prowess. So it was only fathomable that the Netherlands and Ecuador produced a colourless, stifled game, in utter contrast to the vibrant colour around the stadium. Several Dutch fans had arrived in their sparkling orange thobes and keffiyeh, Ecuadorians in their flashy yellow t-shirts. Both eked out a point that saw them level with three points, but the result ended all hopes of hosts Qatar progressing to the last 16, after their defeats to Ecuador and Senegal.🍿 What to watch this weekend 5) This week, Shubhra Gupta reviews the latest Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon-starrer ‘Bhediya’: “Varun Dhawan does a good job of aligning with the tone of the film– the horror is pretty much ‘naam-ke-vaaste’, comedy is what it is interested in and does it well.” (3 ⭐)Express Quiz Until tomorrow, Rahel Philipose
AHMEDABAD: Even as gold and silver prices show an upward trend, gold demand continues to remain bullish. After remaining stable over four days, gold prices yet again climbed to Rs 54,400 per 10 gram in the Ahmedabad market on Friday. Silver too climbed to Rs 62,000 per kg in the local markets here. Spot gold price in the international market stood at $1,749.75 per troy ounce, according to the World Gold Council (WGC) around 8pm on Friday. “Benefiting from a weaker US dollar following the meeting of the US Federal Reserves, precious metal prices went up since Thursday itself. Even though gold and silver prices remain upwards, the demand is expected to remain stable in the wake of a buoyant wedding season,” said Haresh Acharya, director, India Bullion and Jewellers’ Association (IBJA). Since Diwali this year, gold prices have firmed up by nearly 5%, amidst a weaker dollar. “Rising procurement of gold by central banks to hedge economic uncertainty coupled with slower ETF outflows may push gold prices upwards in the coming few weeks,” Acharya added. In October, gold imports into Gujarat stood at 8.32MT, driven by festive muhurats, according to the Ahmedabad Air Cargo Complex. “This demand is further expected to escalate in the coming months. Due to high prices, there is a higher degree of recycling of gold, but overall, the demand for fresh gold continues to remain high,” said an Ahmedabad-based jeweller. Besides gold, the demand for silver is also high. “With the monsoon remaining good and agriculture output and income staying stable, overall demand for silver has gone up. About 60% of our customers come from rural areas and they are surely driving demand,” the jeweller added.
AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat State Legal Services Authority (GSLSA) has launched a programme of building a cadre of high school children to spread awareness across the state about the provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (Pocso) and the rights of child victims. The GSLSA has named it Nirbhaya Brigade and nearly 300 children from high schools across districts have been selected. On Saturday, they will learn about important provisions of Pocso Act, sexual offences against children and punishment for these offences. The programme has been organized by the authority under the guidance of the Gujarat high court judges.
