(Source: AP) Top News Manchester United will feed off the atmosphere inside Anfield when they visit Liverpool on Saturday and the hostile reception they receive from the home fans will only serve as extra motivation manager Jose Mourinho has said United have made a strong start to the Premier League season and are second in the table behind Manchester City on goal difference but face a tough test at the home of their bitter rivals Mourinho knows his team cannot expect a warm welcome but is confident they will be equal to the occasion “This is quite funny for me because when people speak about big atmospheres it looks like we don’t like them” the Portuguese told a news conference on Friday “It looks like it is a big problem for us to go to a certain place and to face a big atmosphere This is what we want I am surprised that you speak about that in a negative way “I’m even more surprised when I see former big players speaking about atmospheres like something sinister that worries us It motivates us “It’s something that we want It’s something that if we could have in every match we would have in every match” The manager used Barcelona’s La Liga match against Las Palmas on Oct 1 as an example Barcelona played the game behind closed doors following clashes between police and voters in Catalonia over a disputed independence referendum “When Barcelona played against Las Palmas in an empty stadium do you think the players were happy with that” Mourinho asked “Do you think the Las Palmas players wouldn’t prefer to play in a Nou Camp that is full with a great atmosphere “We go to play against a big team with a big tradition in an amazing stadium We know the fans have huge animosity against Manchester United historically but this is what we want “So we are very happy in our careers to have one more opportunity to play in these beautiful conditions It is beautiful to play at Anfield Beautiful” United are unbeaten so far this season with six wins and one draw while Juergen Klopp’s Liverpool are seventh with three wins three draws and one defeat and Mourinho said both teams were evenly matched “I look at them with the potential they have the quality of their players and the team It’s a very difficult match for us and I believe they think it is a difficult match for them” he added For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Chandigarh | Published: March 3 2017 4:17 am Top News ACTIVIST HARMAN Singh Sidhu who filed a petition seeking removal of liquor vends from the National and State Highways in the Supreme Court gave a representation to UT Administrator V P Singh Badnore saying that the UT was trying to dodge the implications of the order by de-notifying the state highways in Chandigarh to prevent closure of their liquor vends “It is highly disturbing to know that my own hometown Chandigarh has taken a lead and constituted a committee to de-notify the State Highways to dodge the implications of the historic order The sole aim is to ensure liquor vends stay along the State Highways” stated the representation He added “Officials of 29 states and six Union Territories are eagerly watching the steps being taken by Chandigarh on this issue They would follow us and de-notify highways This would adversely affect the vision of Prime Minister of India to reduce deaths and injuries on Indian roads by 50 per cent I also wonder this is how we are going to make a smart city by demolishing roundabouts building flyovers and offering free availability of liquor around the city leading to increase in the number of road crashes” Sidhu has requested the administrator to look into the matter The committee formed by the UT Administration to look into the matter has proposed that the roads which are called state highways might be called major district roads Liquor vends at only one stretch from Vikas Nagar that is the National Highway are likely to face closure if this proposal is approved The Supreme Court had passed the order in December 2016 stating that liquor vends falling within 500 metres from the state and national highways would have to be closed from April 1 2017 Besides the vends the bar licence of restaurants bars and hotels on these roads would also not be renewed The order of the Supreme Court has left the Department of Excise and Taxation in a fix as the administration has already notified a majority of the roads as state highways in the city and a majority of the liquor vends would have faced closure The administration had issued a notification in 2006 declaring all V1 (fast roads connecting Chandigarh to other towns) V2 (arterial roads) and V3 roads (fast vehicular sector-dividing roads) state highways For all the latest City Others News

country can be emergency-proof with a majority government Since all power corrupts the fear of losing power corrupts absolutely That is what happened in June 1975 I was appointed additional solicitor-general of India on May 1 1972 I had been practising then in Bombay for 22 years and had to move to Delhi I was reappointed for another three-year term from May 1 1975 on the oral assurance of the law minister that the post would be upgraded soon — from July he promised there would be two posts for solicitor-general; the second would be for me More grist to my ambitious mill But “the best laid schemes of mice and men go oft awry” And for me they went totally awry — with the proclamation of Emergency of June 25 1975 It was imposed only to offset the consequences arising out of a possible refusal by the Supreme Court (then in vacation) to accede to Indira Gandhi’s request for an absolute stay of the Allahabad High Court judgment It was on June 12 1975 that Justice Jagmohan Lal Sinha of the High Court of Allahabad pronounced judgment in the election petition filed against Gandhi holding her guilty of corrupt practices and disqualifying her from holding all public office (a statutory six-year disqualification) I had read a copy of Justice Sinha’s judgment when it was brought to me by JB Dadachanji (then a household name among advocates in India) He was the advocate-on-record for Gandhi in the contemplated proceedings in the Supreme Court There were several meetings and discussions about the judgment with the law minister and with PN Dhar the prime minister’s principal secretary Indeed at that time hardly anything else was being talked about in government circles The judgment was singularly weak in its reasoning and I mentioned this both to Dhar and to HR Gokhale the law minister I was then told that Gandhi had personally requested that I should vet the grounds of appeal as also the stay application (to be filed in the Supreme Court) even after her own senior advocate the distinguished Nani Palkhivala had settled them I was flattered I went through the papers and suggested a few changes On June 19 the verification paragraphs of the petition were also seen and approved by me The filing of the petition of appeal was delayed for another day or two to select the most astrologically auspicious date Palkhivala argued the stay application before the vacation judge Justice VR Krishna Iyer on June 22 The next evening my wife and I left for a brief holiday to Bombay by the Rajdhani Express On the train I read an item tucked away in one of the inner pages of the Evening News: that morning it said the home secretary had been transferred and a new man from Rajasthan had taken over A new home secretary in the government of India And why so suddenly Odd I thought to myself but then paid no further attention to it In retrospect it was apparent that preparations were then afoot unknown to all but those closest to the prime minister to make contingency plans in the event of an absolute stay being refused by the Supreme Court Justice Iyer’s order was handed down on June 24 1975: Only a conditional stay — no absolute stay And “Operation Emergency” swung into motion From Bombay as we called it then on the morning of the June 27 I informed the law minister of my decision on the telephone I then drafted signed and posted to Delhi a one-line letter of resignation — there were no heroic passages in it With the imposition of censorship the news of my resignation was suppressed in the Indian press But it was published in The New York Times News of my having quit government permanently did not trickle down — not even to the judges Two weeks later in the middle of July 1975 when I appeared in the chief justice’s court in Bombay in a private litigation on seeing me appear I overheard Chief Justice RM Kantawala whisper to his colleague on the bench Justice VD Tulzapurkar that I had resigned as law officer Justice Tulzapurkar a fine and brave judge told Justice Kantawala quite audibly (the chief justice was quite deaf in one ear) “I don’t quite know I believe he has resigned in order to appear for Mrs Gandhi” That was the rumour among the judges An Emergency thrives on rumours The resignation of law officer number 3 made no impact created no ripples in the political waters in the capital I was simply not important enough Later I remember telling my wife: “I wish I sincerely wish I was attorney-general on June 27 only for the reason that my resignation would then have had some effect” The then high commissioner of Australia a non-career diplomat who occasionally used to walk with us in the evenings at Nehru Park told me not long after the Emergency that he had met Gandhi a couple of weeks after June 25 and she had expressed shock and surprise at the lack of reaction among the “intelligentsia” She need not have been surprised It is always the intelligentsia that has both the capacity and inclination to rationalise tyranny And so it was in India Shortly after I resigned I resumed private practice in the Supreme Court Chandubhai Daphtary (former attorney-general) and Sunderlal Desai (senior advocate former judge now practising in the Supreme Court) were distinguished contemporaries both Gujarati-speaking They always came in early to the Bar library — each sat opposite the other occasionally exchanging pleasantries occasionally not One morning in August 1975 I was the sole witness to the following conversation: ST Desai: (holding a cigarette between his third and fourth finger in a loosely-clenched fist as was his habit occasionally inhaling): “Chandubhai bolo (Chandubhai speak)” CK Daphtary: (puffing at his pipe his eyes sparkling with mischief): “Sunderlal tame
