Test series triumphs against Bangladesh, Australia and Sri Lanka ensured India remained on top of the ICC rankings.However, the real challenge for Virat Kohli’s India will come in the New Year in South Africa. India play their first Test in Cape Town from January 5 and the world’s top-ranked Test team will be expected to replicate their home season form in a country where they have never won a Test series.However, coach Ravi Shastri sees that as an opportunity and he is backing his men to do what they have done right through their successful home season. India have respected their opposition, there has been no loose talk from any of their players but their body language showed they were out there on the park to win.Shastri, in an exclusive interview with India Today’s Boria Majumdar, said India would go to South Africa with the same mentality. The coach lauded the team for its self-belief and said each player believed he could do well in South Africa against some of the best players in world cricket.”For us, all opposition is the same, all opposition has to be respected, every game is a home game and as it turns out next month is in South Africa,” Shastri told India Today. “Now where South Africa is different is that we have never won a series in South Africa and therein lies a massive opportunity for the team to do something special.”The belief is there and we will treat South Africa like we have treated every other opposition. There will be respect but we will go there to play to win.”While India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma said that the team has performed well despite few hiccups and are ready for stiffer challenges against the Proteas.”Looking very much forward to South Africa. Would like to reiterate the home season we’ve had. Never easy, no matter what conditions you play in. You have to go and get the win,” said The Hitman.advertisement

APTN National NewsOTTAWA–A northern Ontario First Nation won an injunction Wednesday against a junior exploration company that ignored provincial requests it consult with the Algonquin community before drilling on its traditional territory.An Ontario Superior Court judge sided with Wahgoshig First Nation and issued an injunction against Solid Gold Resources preventing the firm from doing any more work on the First Nation’s territory for 120 days.Justice Carole Brown ordered the company and the province to begin a consultation process with the community during the injunction period.Solid Gold president Darryl Stretch said he was disappointed with the decision.“It’s a bad day for junior exploration companies operating in Canada,” said Stretch.A community of about 250 people, Wahgoshig First Nations sits near Matheson, Ont., about 68 kilometres east of Timmins.Brown found that the firm “made a concerted, willful effort not to consult” with the First Nation, despite provincial requests Solid Gold engage in talks with Wahgoshig in 2009 and in 2011.The provincial government even offered to “facilitate the process” for Solid Gold, Brown wrote in the ruling.When two hunters from Wahgoshig came across one of the company’s drilling crews in the spring of 2011, the workers refused to reveal the name of their employer.When Wahgoshig band officials managed to find out which company was behind the drilling, they tried to initiate contact with Solid Gold to no avail.The community says the territory Solid Gold targeted for drilling contains burial grounds and other sacred sites.In 1995, Ontario’s Minister of Natural Resources determined that the Treaty 9 lands were an “area of cultural heritage potential.”Solid Gold’s lawyer told the court the company believed it had “no legal responsibility or duty to consult” and if there was a duty, it was up to governments to execute.The company said the Treaty 9 lands it was exploring were “surrendered to the Crown” and Wahgoshig had no “veto right over their activity.”Solid Gold, however, also admitted that any “impact, damage or destruction” done to the Algonquin’s territory had already occurred.Brown, however, concluded that allowing Solid Gold to continue its drilling work and ignoring the position of the Algonquins would send the wrong message.“To refuse to enjoin Solid Gold from its drilling, in the circumstances of this case, will send a message that Aboriginal and treaty rights, including the rights to consultation and accommodation can be ignored by exploration companies, rendering the First Nations constitutionally recognized rights meaningless,” wrote Brown. “That would not be in the public interest. It is in the public interest to ensure that the Constitution is honoured and respected.”

Kushmandi (South Dinajpur): Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee said BJP is insulting Ram, as his name is being used by the party in a bid to win elections.Addressing a meeting here on Thursday afternoon, Banerjee said: “BJP is insulting Ram by using his name to win elections. Before the election BJP promises to construct Ram temple and forgets it after the election gets over,” he said, adding: “BJP shouts Jai Sri Ram before conducting riots. There are blood stains on their hands.” Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaBanerjee said as BJP does not do any work, the party has no other alternative but to use religion to win polls. “Religion is private and in social life, work is the only religion. BJP uses religion to divide people and incite people belonging to one religion against the other,” he added. Banerjee said at a time when the entire country is suffering from acute economic crisis, Narendra Modi is spending Rs 3,000 crore to construct the statue of unity and crores more on his foreign trips. He alleged that Modi’s “Make in India” is a big hoax. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway”Modi is encouraging the sale of Chinese products. The bullet train has been brought from Japan and he himself uses a German vehicle,” he said, adding: “Earlier, Modi used to sell tea by holding a kettle and now he is selling the country with Jaitley besides him.” Addressing first-time voters, Banerjee said: “Before casting your vote you should think about the consequences of note ban and GST. The poor people are yet to come out of the shock of note ban. Thousands of people have lost their jobs. Twelve thousand farmers have committed suicide. The hasty implementation of GST has affected traders and small businessmen badly. Modi has not said a single word on the issue and is instead making false promises before the elections.” The Trinamool Youth Congress president said BJP workers and leaders can only be seen before the elections, whereas Trinamool workers and leaders stay beside people throughout the year. “People know that Trinamool leaders and workers will always stand beside them during distress. BJP leaders are like seasonal birds, they go when the season is over,” he said. Banerjee said Trinamool candidate Arpita Ghosh, who is the sitting MP from Balurghat, will win the election by 2 lakh votes. “I can feel the pulse of the people and can assure you that Ghosh will win by 2 lakh votes,” he said, requesting voters to go to the polling stations early in the day to exercise their franchise. Balurghat will go to polls on April 23.
