In a bid to ensure the security of motorcyclists, no two-wheeler rider will be allowed entry on the Lucknow-Agra expressway without helmets, the Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) decided on Monday.

“In the interest of people, it has been decided not to allow two-wheeler riders on the expressway without helmets. It will be strictly enforced,” UPEIDA CEO Awanish Awasthi said.

Arrangements for security of commuters are being made in the expressway and in this direction, no two-wheeler will be allowed on the expressway if its rider is found without helmet, he added.

Use of correct helmet can reduce the 42% risk of fatal injuries and 69%of reduction in head injuries. Non Use of helmets was listed as one of the risk factors in study released on road traffic injury by the WHO.

Hyderabad: The Union Home Ministry has cancelled the Indian citizenship of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MLA Ramesh Chennamaneni for concealing facts about his foreign tours. The MLA is alleged to have secretly taken German citizenship and not informed about it.

Fresh orders were issued after hearing Ramesh, who had challenged an earlier order from 2017, cancelling his citizenship.

“His misrepresentation/concealment of fact misled the government of India in making its decision initially. Had he revealed the fact that he had not resided in India for one year before making the application, the competent authority in this ministry would not have granted citizenship to him,” a ministry order said.

It said the competent authority is “satisfied that it is not conducive to public good that Chennamaneni continues to be a citizen of India” and, therefore, decided that he “ceases” to be a citizen of the country.

Ramesh, who was re-elected to the Telangana Assembly from Vemulawada constituency last year, said he would approach the high court for relief.

Ramesh Chennamaneni belongs to a political family from Vemulawada, he was three times MLA. In 2009, he contested for the first time on a Telugu Desam Party ticket. His father Rajeshwar Rao was a freedom fighter and was a 6-time MLA.
