The full story of the death of 10 jawans in Chhattisgarh Naxalite attack came to know : India Why are Naxalite youths recruited in the DRG whose jawans were killed?  Maoist attack (Chhattisgarh Naxal Attack) took place on 26 April in Aranpur village of Dantewada, Chhattisgarh. 10 District Reserve Guard (DRG) jawans and a civilian were killed in the IED blast. Till the time of writing this report, many officers were present on the spot. Investigation and investigation is going on. But what is the story of the DRG whose jawans were killed and what is the story behind the attack?  In the year 2008, DRG was started for Naxal operation in Kanker and Narayanpur districts of Bastar division. Then in 2013 Bijapur and Bastar. Sukma and Kondagaon in 2014. And in 2015 it started in Dantewada. DRG basically consists of Naxalites who have surrendered. Since as a Naxalite he has wandered in these forests earlier and has acquaintance with the tribals, in such a situation he proves to be a better option.  A senior official of Chhattisgarh explains about this,  "In recent times, DRG has come to play an important role in all Naxal operations. From the state police to the central forces also trust them. Why so? DRG personnel were Naxalites till some time ago. They surrendered and joined the armed forces. That's why they understand the habits of the Naxalites, the terrain of that area and the specifics of the operation better. Generally, DRG personnel lead all the security forces from Naxal operations to searches."    The sources further state,  "After surrendering, Naxalites remain under observation for 1-2 years. During this, the security forces keep watching their activities. During this time, when they are fine, they come in the role of guide and secret soldier. The first informer of Naxal operation They work in the role. They are given some money from the police fund. Their families are evacuated from Naxalite affected areas and settled in safer areas. When the surrendered Naxalites are successful in the role of guide, they are given INSAS rifle. Then they get ready to fight in the Naxalite operation.  Where the security forces take care of formation etc while fighting, DRG soldiers know how to enter and fight. Because he himself has been a Naxalite before. That's why they understand the area as well as the guerilla warfare method very well. During the operation, from where the fire is coming, the DRG personnel enter there and retaliate."   There is also a danger here. The person who was firing yesterday as a Naxal standing next to his comrades, the same person is now firing on the Naxalites from the front as a DRG jawan. That's why they are in the most danger in the ongoing war against Naxalites. Journalists talk in such a language that even the police make them stand in front of their old comrades to shoot them. Its only loss from everywhere. However, the officials deny this. They say that since DRG people know the way Naxalites work, then Naxalites are afraid of them.   Naxalite attacks happen in the month of February to June. Major incidents of Naxalite violence in Chhattisgarh have been registered in the month of February to June only.   April 2010 - Tadmetla Naxalite attack - 76 CRPF jawans killed. May 2013 - Jhiram Valley attack - 30 Congress leaders and security personnel killed. April 2021 - Sukma-Bijapur attack - 22 security personnel killed.  And now this incident of Aranpur of Dantewada.  Why do these major attacks happen only in the months of February to June?  Sources reveal that in fact Naxalites run TCOC i.e. tactical counter-offensive campaign every year from February to June. During this, the maximum number of attacks on the armed forces are carried out with guerilla-guerrilla techniques. And at this time the Maoists get time to regroup. But why does it happen only in the months of February to June? Sources tell that in fact, after this season in the Naxal-affected forests, due to autumn, the forests become a little clean, so the weather becomes favorable for the Naxalite operation.   The second reason is that this is the time for plucking and selling tendu leaves. So the Maoists collect levy (called Hafta) from the tendu leaf contractors in this season as well. As soon as the monsoon arrives, it becomes impossible for the Maoists to move in the forest and collect tendu leaves. But the Naxalites wait for the next favorable season by hiding under the guise of new leaves coming on the trees.                The Hong Kong government intends to increase the import of foreign workers to the aviation industry LAB: sugar-coated poison  It has been pointed out that the Hong Kong government is studying large-scale importation of foreign labor, covering the medical care, transportation, catering and even aviation industries. Some labor organizations estimate that the total number of people may be in the tens of thousands, describing the practice as "sugar-coated poison" and damaging Hong Kong's international brand image.  After the epidemic, Hong Kong is heading for "return to normal". The Hong Kong government even gave out 500,000 free air tickets to attract tourists in order to revive the economy. Recently, the Hong Kong government has even considered importing foreign workers in the aviation industry to ensure that the aviation industry can "return to normal" as soon as possible.  According to the latest statistics from the Hong Kong Airport Authority, there are currently 53,000 people working at the Hong Kong International Airport, which is still 25,000 fewer than the 78,000 people before the outbreak of the new crown epidemic.  Foreign labor scheme extended to Hong Kong aviation industry? It is planned to import grassroots foreign workers on a large scale for the first time   The industry is worried about the importation of foreign workers by the Hong Kong government. The Hong Kong Civil Aviation Industry Workers General Union held a press conference on Wednesday (26th). Chairman Li Yongfu pointed out that Hong Kong used to attract professionals in the aviation industry through talent programs in the past, but it did not import grassroots workers on a large scale. Foreign workers described the plan as a "big siege" and it is expected to cover more than 20,000 ground staff duties, not including foreign pilots or flight attendants.  Li Yongfu said: The importation of foreign workers mentioned by the Legislative Council is very general to cover the entire labor market at once, without splitting the demand. We must reiterate that we must protect the basic grassroots labor force and allow them to have jobs to earn a living. .  Ye Yile, chairman of the Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminal Workers Union, said that during the epidemic period, there were serious job vacancies in the aviation industry, and airline catering and check-in counters were the hardest hit areas. The employee turnover rate was close to 60%. He believes that the AA has not improved the employment protection of local workers before considering the importation of foreign workers.  Ye Yile said: Some of the most basic airports do ground handling, such as haulage, storage, and in-flight meals. In fact, the basic wages of artificial workers are quite low. Everyone will feel an uproar when they hear it, even if it is 9,000 yuan. Of course, there are many other allowances. Adding it all together has reached a certain amount, so we feel that under the premise of importing foreign workers, we must increase the salaries of local employees, that is, grass-roots employees. If this is not done but a large number of foreign workers are imported, this is unreasonable of.  Ye Yile also pointed out that in the past, the labor union called on the AAMA management to do a good job in training and succession work, but the other party did not take it seriously. The union believes that over the past three years, the airport companies have significantly reduced the salaries and benefits of employees and forced them to take unpaid leave. At present, the industry is recovering after the epidemic has eased. Some organizations have further deducted benefits such as double pay and continued to conduct a large number of recruitment work, with the purpose of creating a false impression that recruitment is difficult.  He believes that the airport companies just hope to bring in so-called foreign workers at a lower cost to meet their manpower needs. This behavior is absolutely unacceptable. If there is a loss due to poor management, it should be replaced by a capable person.  Labor Organization: Large-scale importation of foreign workers by the Hong Kong government is a "sugar-coated poison"  In addition, the employee representatives of the Labor Advisory Board held a press conference on the same day, dissatisfied with the Hong Kong government’s “reinvention” and intending to bypass the approval of the Labor Advisory Board, allowing the construction industry and the transportation industry to directly import a large number of foreign companies without going through the current “Supplementary Labor Scheme”. labor. The LAB believes that the relevant practices have not taken into account the development of human resources and the employment opportunities of the local working class.  Tan Jinlian, an employee representative member of the Labor Advisory Council, told this station that the Hong Kong government plans to import foreign workers in various industries, and it is estimated that 40,000 to 50,000 people may be involved. There are many social issues that the Hong Kong government should carefully consider.   Tan Jinlian said: The Singapore government has reduced the number of foreign workers, or the cost of foreign workers has increased, which has caused companies to reduce the use of foreign workers. Others have spent more than 10 years bearing the bitter fruit. The Hong Kong government does not look at it, and the businessmen do not look at it. They just care about "no, I can't do business, so I must hire the most ordinary people." Relying on foreign labor is a sugar-coated poison. Although it is said that it has "returned to normal", in fact the consumption power has not yet arrived, and the tourists have not returned. At this time, it should not be "one click" (Cantonese, meaning one button) to import foreign workers. This button cannot be pressed. Be very careful.  Worried that Hong Kong's international brands may be difficult to maintain  In order to solve the accommodation problem of foreign workers, it has recently been reported that the Hong Kong government is considering allowing foreign workers to travel across the border on the same day, that is, allowing foreign workers to return to their residences in the Mainland without being forced to stay in Hong Kong.  Tan Jinlian pointed out that this method is "very destructive". Hiring foreign workers at a low cost makes it more difficult for local workers to improve their employment conditions and wages, creating a vicious circle. And every batch of newly hired foreign workers needs to be retrained, and they lack experience. In the long run, it will adversely affect the quality of Hong Kong's services, hinder the development of the industry, and reduce Hong Kong's competitiveness.  Tan Jinlian said: Replace a batch of cheap laborers in two years, and the company says to have high-quality services, world-class standards, gourmet paradises, and high-quality experiences like tourist attractions. Is this model enough to train these people? I don't think so. Don't think that it is enough to have someone, and you can't maintain the Hong Kong brand if you continue to maintain it.  Tan Jinlian pointed out that during the epidemic, many experienced employees needed to find other jobs due to the downturn in the market, such as working as a delivery man to earn extra money. Now that the market is "returning to normal", many employees hope to return to their original industries , but under the foreign worker scheme, employers would rather hire foreign workers with low labor costs than spend more money to re-employ middle-level workers.  The number of unemployed people in Hong Kong is 115,000  As the Hong Kong government studies hiring foreign workers, Hong Kong's unemployment rate remains a concern. The Census and Statistics Department announced on Monday (24th) that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate from January to March this year was 3.1%, down 0.2 percentage points from 3.3% from December last year to February this year; the underemployment rate also fell by 0.1 percentage points to 1.2%. Hong Kong currently has 115,000 unemployed people.  Sun Yuhan, Secretary of the Labor and Welfare Bureau, said that the labor market continues to improve. With the continued recovery of local economic activities and inbound tourism, and the issuance of a new round of consumer vouchers this month, the labor market should further improve.          Xi Jinping and Zelensky call scholars: little impact on the Russia-Ukraine war  The Russian-Ukrainian war has lasted more than a year. The self-proclaimed "peace envoy" Chinese President Xi Jinping finally had a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Wednesday. What did the two leaders talk about in the phone call? How will this call affect the situation of the Russia-Ukraine war?  On Wednesday afternoon, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky finally had their first phone call more than a year after the war between Russia and Ukraine began. According to Xinhua News Agency, during the phone call, Xi Jinping said that China-Ukraine relations have gone through 31 years of development and have reached the level of strategic partnership, and mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity is the political basis of China-Ukraine relations. Partnerships.  Regarding the Russia-Ukraine war, Xi Jinping pointed out that China has always stood on the side of peace, and said that China will soon send a special representative on Eurasian affairs to visit Ukraine and other countries to find a political solution to the Russia-Ukraine war.  On the phone, Zelensky congratulated Xi Jinping on his re-election as the third national leader, expressed his gratitude to China for providing humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, and welcomed China to play an important role in restoring peace and resolving the crisis through diplomatic means.  According to Taiwan's Central News Agency, after the two heads of state finished the phone call, Zelensky appointed former Minister of Strategic Industry Pavel Ryabikin as Ukraine's ambassador to China, a position that has been vacant since February 2021.  White House: Ukraine welcomes direct dialogue with China  Regarding the above-mentioned calls, White House National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby said at a regular briefing on Wednesday: "The United States welcomes their calls. Important. If China can help create a peace deal that is sustainable from a Ukrainian perspective that President Zelensky supports, the United States will certainly support it.”  Scholar: China claims to be neutral but actually favors Russia  Although China has long claimed to be neutral in the Russia-Ukraine war, Xi has spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin five times since the war broke out, and the two leaders even met in Russia in March.  Zuri Linetsky, a researcher on U.S. foreign policy at the Eurasia Group Foundation, a think tank in New York, said in an interview with this station that the Chinese authorities were not really neutral in the Russia-Ukraine war, but were more frank Russia: "China wants to be seen as neutral, but it also wants to give Russia some support. At the same time, it wants to become a possible mediator in the Russia-Ukraine war. China wants to do everything at the same time."  Linzky estimated that Xi Jinping chose to talk to Zelensky at this time because there was intelligence that a new round of major counteroffensive in Ukraine was about to take place: "Xi Jinping probably wants to have a dialogue with Zelenskiy before Ukraine launches a new round of counteroffensive." Lensky re-enhances relations, and Xi Jinping wants to tell Zelensky that he is willing to cooperate if the counteroffensive makes the situation different in the Ukrainian-Russian war. It is worth noting that a few days before the leaders of the two sides spoke, the Chinese ambassador Made inappropriate remarks about Ukraine, which prevented China from achieving one of its major diplomatic goals: repairing friendly relations with European countries."  Last week, Chinese Ambassador to France Lu Shaye publicly stated in an exclusive interview with French television that Eastern European countries independent from the former Soviet Union have no sovereign status. His remarks sparked strong reactions from European countries.  Scholar: The diplomatic meaning of this call is greater than the real impact  Linzky believes that the phone call between Xi Jinping and Zelensky will not bring about major changes in the Russia-Ukraine war: "From the press release of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there are not many parts about the war between China and Russia. It seems that China is unwilling to sacrifice relations with Russia in order to make meaningful changes to the Russo-Ukrainian war. ... This call is more diplomatic. China has many interests in Ukraine. From 2000 to 2020, China borrowed Ukraine is worth $7 billion, and it is also Ukraine’s largest trading partner, and Ukraine is also a country along the Belt and Road, so China hopes to manage and not damage its relationship with Ukraine.”  Wang Jian, a political commentator in the United States, also holds similar views with Linzky: "I think this phone call has three meanings. The first meaning is that last Friday, the Chinese ambassador to France, Lu Shaye, said something about the current Chinese situation. It has a great impact on European policy. Xi Jinping’s phone call is to remedy the impact of Lu Shaye. The second meaning is that there is a high probability that Ukraine will launch a major counterattack next week. From a political point of view, Xi Jinping’s phone call is regarded as The peace process is helping Russia and avoiding the collapse of the Putin regime. Third, French President Macron visited China. He put forward a series of demands in line with China's political orientation, such as keeping a distance from the United States and having an independent Political vision, don't get involved in the Taiwan issue, Xi Jinping's phone call also echoes Macron's political demands."

Why are Naxalite youths recruited in the DRG whose soldiers were killed?

Maoist attack (Chhattisgarh Naxal Attack) took place on 26 April in Aranpur village of Dantewada, Chhattisgarh. 10 District Reserve Guard (DRG) soldiers and a civilian were killed in the IED blast.

The Hong Kong government intends to increase the import of foreign workers to the aviation industry LAB: sugar-coated poison

It has been pointed out that the Hong Kong government is studying large-scale importation of foreign labor, covering the medical care, transportation, catering and even aviation industries. Some labor organizations estimate that the total number of people may be in the tens of thousands, describing the practice as "sugar-coated poison" and damaging Hong Kong's international brand image.

After the epidemic, Hong Kong is heading for "return to normal". The Hong Kong government even gave out 500,000 free air tickets to attract tourists in order to revive the economy. Recently, the Hong Kong government has even considered importing foreign workers in the aviation industry to ensure that the aviation industry can "return to normal" as soon as possible.

According to the latest statistics from the Hong Kong Airport Authority, there are currently 53,000 people working at the Hong Kong International Airport, which is still 25,000 fewer than the 78,000 people before the outbreak of the new crown epidemic.

Foreign labor scheme extended to Hong Kong aviation industry? It is planned to import grassroots foreign workers on a large scale for the first time 

The industry is worried about the importation of foreign workers by the Hong Kong government. The Hong Kong Civil Aviation Industry Workers General Union held a press conference on Wednesday (26th). Chairman Li Yongfu pointed out that Hong Kong used to attract professionals in the aviation industry through talent programs in the past, but it did not import grassroots workers on a large scale. Foreign workers described the plan as a "big siege" and it is expected to cover more than 20,000 ground staff duties, not including foreign pilots or flight attendants.

Li Yongfu said: The importation of foreign workers mentioned by the Legislative Council is very general to cover the entire labor market at once, without splitting the demand. We must reiterate that we must protect the basic grassroots labor force and allow them to have jobs to earn a living. .

Ye Yile, chairman of the Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminal Workers Union, said that during the epidemic period, there were serious job vacancies in the aviation industry, and airline catering and check-in counters were the hardest hit areas. The employee turnover rate was close to 60%. He believes that the AA has not improved the employment protection of local workers before considering the importation of foreign workers.

Ye Yile said: Some of the most basic airports do ground handling, such as haulage, storage, and in-flight meals. In fact, the basic wages of artificial workers are quite low. Everyone will feel an uproar when they hear it, even if it is 9,000 yuan. Of course, there are many other allowances. Adding it all together has reached a certain amount, so we feel that under the premise of importing foreign workers, we must increase the salaries of local employees, that is, grass-roots employees. If this is not done but a large number of foreign workers are imported, this is unreasonable of.

Ye Yile also pointed out that in the past, the labor union called on the AAMA management to do a good job in training and succession work, but the other party did not take it seriously. The union believes that over the past three years, the airport companies have significantly reduced the salaries and benefits of employees and forced them to take unpaid leave. At present, the industry is recovering after the epidemic has eased. Some organizations have further deducted benefits such as double pay and continued to conduct a large number of recruitment work, with the purpose of creating a false impression that recruitment is difficult.

He believes that the airport companies just hope to bring in so-called foreign workers at a lower cost to meet their manpower needs. This behavior is absolutely unacceptable. If there is a loss due to poor management, it should be replaced by a capable person.

Labor Organization: Large-scale importation of foreign workers by the Hong Kong government is a "sugar-coated poison"

In addition, the employee representatives of the Labor Advisory Board held a press conference on the same day, dissatisfied with the Hong Kong government’s “reinvention” and intending to bypass the approval of the Labor Advisory Board, allowing the construction industry and the transportation industry to directly import a large number of foreign companies without going through the current “Supplementary Labor Scheme”. labor. The LAB believes that the relevant practices have not taken into account the development of human resources and the employment opportunities of the local working class.

Tan Jinlian, an employee representative member of the Labor Advisory Council, told this station that the Hong Kong government plans to import foreign workers in various industries, and it is estimated that 40,000 to 50,000 people may be involved. There are many social issues that the Hong Kong government should carefully consider. 

Tan Jinlian said: The Singapore government has reduced the number of foreign workers, or the cost of foreign workers has increased, which has caused companies to reduce the use of foreign workers. Others have spent more than 10 years bearing the bitter fruit. The Hong Kong government does not look at it, and the businessmen do not look at it. They just care about "no, I can't do business, so I must hire the most ordinary people." Relying on foreign labor is a sugar-coated poison. Although it is said that it has "returned to normal", in fact the consumption power has not yet arrived, and the tourists have not returned. At this time, it should not be "one click" (Cantonese, meaning one button) to import foreign workers. This button cannot be pressed. Be very careful.

Worried that Hong Kong's international brands may be difficult to maintain

In order to solve the accommodation problem of foreign workers, it has recently been reported that the Hong Kong government is considering allowing foreign workers to travel across the border on the same day, that is, allowing foreign workers to return to their residences in the Mainland without being forced to stay in Hong Kong.

Tan Jinlian pointed out that this method is "very destructive". Hiring foreign workers at a low cost makes it more difficult for local workers to improve their employment conditions and wages, creating a vicious circle. And every batch of newly hired foreign workers needs to be retrained, and they lack experience. In the long run, it will adversely affect the quality of Hong Kong's services, hinder the development of the industry, and reduce Hong Kong's competitiveness.

Tan Jinlian said: Replace a batch of cheap laborers in two years, and the company says to have high-quality services, world-class standards, gourmet paradises, and high-quality experiences like tourist attractions. Is this model enough to train these people? I don't think so. Don't think that it is enough to have someone, and you can't maintain the Hong Kong brand if you continue to maintain it.

Tan Jinlian pointed out that during the epidemic, many experienced employees needed to find other jobs due to the downturn in the market, such as working as a delivery man to earn extra money. Now that the market is "returning to normal", many employees hope to return to their original industries , but under the foreign worker scheme, employers would rather hire foreign workers with low labor costs than spend more money to re-employ middle-level workers.

The number of unemployed people in Hong Kong is 115,000

As the Hong Kong government studies hiring foreign workers, Hong Kong's unemployment rate remains a concern. The Census and Statistics Department announced on Monday (24th) that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate from January to March this year was 3.1%, down 0.2 percentage points from 3.3% from December last year to February this year; the underemployment rate also fell by 0.1 percentage points to 1.2%. Hong Kong currently has 115,000 unemployed people.

Sun Yuhan, Secretary of the Labor and Welfare Bureau, said that the labor market continues to improve. With the continued recovery of local economic activities and inbound tourism, and the issuance of a new round of consumer vouchers this month, the labor market should further improve.
