After atomic power hub, TN set to become major space centre

Tamil Nadu Set to Become Major Space Centre with New Rocket Port

Chennai, Feb 26 (IANS) – Tamil Nadu is on the verge of becoming a significant space hub in India, with the construction of a rocket/satellite makers, rocket port, space propellant park, defence corridor, and aerospace park. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for India’s second rocket port at Kulasekarapattinam on February 28 during his visit to Tuticorin District, as stated by a senior ISRO official.

The new rocket port at Kulasekarapattinam will cater to the launch needs of both ISRO and private rocket makers. Former Director of ISRO, M Annadurai, highlighted the significance of the new rocket port, stating that Tamil Nadu has the potential to become a global space sector hub with the entry of small rockets and increased drone manufacturing. Additionally, the location of Tuticorin District offers an ideal setting for rocket launches towards the south.

The strategic positioning on the east coast and proximity to the Equator make Kulasekarapattinam an optimal site for placing satellites into polar orbit. With private and government rocket companies looking to offer cost-effective launch services, Tamil Nadu’s development as a space centre is expected to further accelerate. In line with this, the Tamil Nadu Government plans to establish a Space Industrial and Propellant Park near Tuticorin District spanning 2,000 acres, to be set up by the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation Ltd.

Moreover, ISRO will inaugurate the Semi-cryogenics Integrated Engine and Stage Test facility at ISRO Propulsion Complex in Mahendragiri during the Prime Minister’s visit to Kerala. The facility is equipped with testing systems for engines with up to 200 tonnes of thrust, enabling the development of semi-cryogenic engines that will enhance ISRO’s rocket payload capability.

While Tamil Nadu strengthens its position as a space centre, the state continues to be a significant player in the atomic power sector. With multiple nuclear power generation facilities operational and under construction, Tamil Nadu is also advancing its atomic power capabilities. The progression in both space and atomic power sectors signifies the state’s growing prominence in the science and technology domain.

In conclusion, Tamil Nadu’s evolution as a major space centre with the establishment of the new rocket port and related facilities showcases the state’s commitment to advancing in the fields of space exploration and atomic power generation, positioning itself as a key player in India’s technological landscape.

Sheikh Shahjahan’s anticipatory bail plea hearing postponed due to lawyers' strike

The crucial hearing in the anticipatory bail plea of absconding Trinamool Congress leader Shahjahan Sheikh, the accused mastermind behind the attack on ED and CAPF officers at Sandeshkhali on January 5, was postponed at a district court in Barasat due to a pen-down strike by lawyers.

The hearing is rescheduled to March 15, making it the second lower court where Shahjahan is seeking bail. A special PMLA court in Kolkata had earlier rejected his plea. The Calcutta High Court’s division bench clarified that there is no stay order on his arrest.

An FIR was filed against Shahjahan at the Sandeshkhali police station on Monday based on over 70 complaints from villagers. He is accused of harassing women, forcefully grabbing farmland, and flooding farmland with saline water to acquire land at low prices. Legal experts suggest the situation has become critical for Shahjahan with no restrictions on his arrest.

Legal experts feel that following the postponement of the hearing, the situation has become even more critical for Shahjahan considering that a division bench of the Calcutta High Court made it clear on Monday that there is no stay order on his arrest and hence there are no restrictions on the state police seeking to arrest him.

Made mistake by retweeting YouTuber Dhruv Rathee's video, Kejriwal tells SC

New Delhi, Feb 26 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal admitted his mistake of retweeting an alleged defamatory video by YouTuber Dhruv Rathee related to the BJP IT Cell in 2018. Kejriwal presented his case in the Supreme Court against the summons issued in a criminal defamation case.

During the hearing before a bench led by Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Kejriwal’s plea was to quash the summons in the case. The bench, including Justice Dipankar Datta, scheduled the next hearing for March 11 and ordered a stay on the trial court proceedings in the meantime.

The Delhi High Court, on February 5, upheld the summoning order by the Magistrate stating that re-tweeting defamatory content constitutes defamation under Section 499 of the Indian Penal Code. The Magistrate had initially summoned Kejriwal, considering the re-tweet as prima facie defamatory.

The complainant in the case is Vikas Pandey (Sankrityayan), the founder of ‘I Support Narendra Modi’ social media page. He alleged that Kejriwal’s retweet of the video damaged his reputation. The Supreme Court is now set to further review the case on March 11.
