It was decided that the workers will fan out in different parts of the state and expose the “unholy nexus” between the Congress and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP)-Samajwadi Party (SP) combine as they plan a grand alliance against the ruling party.

“These parties ensured that the roots of dynastic, communal and caste politics remained deep even as they looted the country,” Pandey said in his address.

 

Senior BJP leaders interacted office-bearers to begin preparations for 2019 polls:

 

All district-level leaders were told to ensure that the electoral rolls were corrected and anomalies removed in time and that the new voters are added in the voter list after they duly sign and submit their forms.

“The good work done by the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre and the Yogi Adityanath-led state government in UP will ensure that we would win by a thumping majority in polls,” said Pandey.

The district office-bearers were also given talking points on schemes such as Ujjwala, Jan Dhan bank accounts, farmer loan waiver and other welfare schemes ushered in by BJP governments.

Nasa finds Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram with help of Indian engineer

New York: NASA has found the crash site and debris of India’s Chandrayaan-2 Vikram moon lander following a tip from an Indian space enthusiast who examined pictures of the area of the moon taken by a US orbiting camera.

The site was located by Shanmuga Subramanian, who on his own scoured the pictures taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbital Camera (LROC), NASA and Arizona State University announced on Monday confirming the find.

The first mosaic image of the likely crash site made from pictures taken by the LROC on September 17 was downloaded by several people to look for signs of the Vikram, NASA said.

One of them, Subramanian, contacted the LROC project with a positive identification of debris, it said.

Arizona State University (ASU), where the LROC project is located, said: “After receiving this tip, the LROC team confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images.”

When the images for the first mosaic were acquired on September 17, the impact point was poorly illuminated and could not easily be identified, it said.

But two image sequences were acquired on October 14 and 15, and on November 11 were better.

The November mosaic shows best the impact crater, ray and extensive debris field. The three largest pieces of debris are each about 2×2 pixels and cast a one pixel shadow.

The university said that based on Subramanian’s tip, the LROC team scoured the surrounding area in the new mosaics and found the impact site and the debris field.

The impact site is located at 70.8810 degree S, 22.7840 degrees E, at an elevation of 834 metres, it said.

“The debris first located by Shanmuga is about 750 metres northwest of the main crash site,” ASU said.

Vikram lost contact with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) following its launch from Chandraayan-2 moon orbiter on September 6 when it tried to make a softlanding near the moon’s south pole.

In a statement NASA said: “Despite the loss, getting that close to the surface was an amazing achievement.”
