But the decision to go back on its earlier plan has proved costly to the exchequer as the state government has already spent over Rs 15 crore in planning the project and for holding various pre-bid meetings About 143 crore has been given to the consultant Wipro in three installments out of the total contract with themwhich was for about Rs 239 crore It is to be noted that when the first Request

the process and had cited addition of a new district Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Nagar to the project document as the reason behind its decision Following thisa fresh bidding process was initiated After postponing the last date for submitting Request for Qualification document several timesthe final date was set for December 302010 which too was shifted till further notice On January 6after a series of letters between the government and the UPDESCOit was decided that the government-owned firm was equipped to do take up the job and it was asked to implement the project Interestinglywhile the decision has been madethe fact remains that UPDESCOwhich usually provides software assistance and ensures delivery of software and hardware from the listed companies to the concerned departmentshas never taken such a project in the past Moreoverthis project requires software developmentnetworkinginstallation of the hardwaredevelopment of the infrastructure as well as deployment of

(Source: AP) Related News Revelers dancing and singing through the streets of Jerusalem during the holy city’s annual gay pride parade were left shrieking in pain and panic Thursday night as an anti-gay extremist lunged into a group leading the march and stabbed six people Israeli police and witnesses said Police said the attacker Yishai Schlissel who was arrested at the scene for Thursday’s attack had been released from prison just three weeks ago after serving a sentence for stabbing several people at the parade in 2005 Six people were wounded in the attack two of them seriously Eli Bin of Israel’s emergency service said Yishai Schlissel walks through a Gay Pride parade and is just about to pull a knife from under his coat and start stabbing people (Source: AP) The Gay Pride Parade was proceeding as planned with party music Israeli flags and rainbow-clad marchers wending their way through central Jerusalem’s barricaded streets under a heavy police presence An Associated Press photographer witnessed the attacker enter the throng of people with his hand in his coat and within seconds raise a knife and begin stabbing people in the back Police pounced on him and arrested him The crowd’s carefree cheers suddenly gave way to screams Panic ensued and a bloody woman fell to the ground an Associated Press photographer at the scene said A man with blood seeping from his back wandered around with a dazed look before collapsing Another man with his shirt off also had blood dripping down his back Medics quickly surrounded them both and applied pressure to stop the bleeding Shocked revelers some in tears gathered along the sidewalk and hugged and comforted each other as ambulances and police on horses quickly arrived While the attack caused shock it was not unprecedented: Schlissel was convicted of a similar stabbing attack that wounded several people at a gay pride parade in Jerusalem a decade ago Yishai Schlissel was detained by plain-clothes police officers (Source: AP) On Thursday media reports said that Schlissel hid in a nearby supermarket and jumped out to attack the march when it passed nearby Jerusalem police spokesman Asi Ahroni said there was a “massive presence” of police securing the parade but “unfortunately the man managed to pull out a knife and attack” A medic that treated the wounded at the scene Hanoch Zelinger said one woman was stabbed in the back chest and neck and was lying unconscious on the ground Shaarei Tzedek Hospital said it was treating two victims with stab wounds a man who was in serious condition and a woman in critical condition both in their 20s The parade continued after the wounded were taken for treatment but in a far more somber atmosphere Media reported that thousands of Jerusalem residents who had not initially participated in the parade joined in after the attack in solidarity “I do think that homophobia is rooted in the city but that’s the point of the parade” said Benny Zupick 21 shortly after the attack “We are trying to change that And hopefully we will change that It takes one man to create a scene like this Hopefully he’s a minority” A police officer removes a knife from Schlissel (Source: AP) Condemnations of the attack poured in from the heads of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox parties along with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon and others across the Israeli political spectrum President Reuven Rivlin called the attack a “terrible hate crime” “People celebrating their freedom and expressing their identity were viciously stabbed We must not be deluded; a lack of tolerance will lead us to disaster We cannot allow such crimes and we must condemn those who commit and support them” Rivlin said Just a few thousand people usually attend the parade in Jerusalem known for its rich religious history and tradition A majority of Jerusalem’s residents are observant Jews Muslims or Christians conservative communities whose members mostly frown on homosexuality Previous parades in the holy city have drawn opposition Jerusalem’s parade is much smaller and more restrained than the annual gay pride march in the secular Tel Aviv which was attended by some 100000 revelers last month Tel Aviv has emerged as one of the world’s most gay-friendly travel destinations recently The Israeli city stands in sharp contrast to most of the rest of the Middle East where gays are persecuted or even killed in some places Gays serve openly in Israel’s military and parliament and many popular artists and entertainers are gay but gays still face hostility from some ultra-conservative religious communities Israel’s Channel 2 TV aired an interview that Schlissel gave to an ultra-Orthodox Jewish site recently where he spoke out against the gay parade taking place in Jerusalem His remarks were an eerie prelude to Thursday’s attack “The struggle isn’t over and the un-pure want to contaminate Jerusalem” he said “They want to contaminate the
