Party in prison: Murder convict celebrates birthday in India

Party in prison: Murder convict celebrates birthday in India He is a double-murder convict serving life imprisonment but a criminal named Pintu Tiwari recently celebrated his birthday inside a prison in the Indian state of Bihar. Is that even allowed? Social media users in India were flummoxed when the video and pictures from the party at Bihar's Sitamarhi jail went viral on Sunday. There was cake, of course, and gifts followed by a feast of mutton with rice. The premise was decorated with balloons where the inmates enjoyed the feast. Bihar: In a video birthday of a criminal, Pintu Tiwari (in black t-shirt), was seen being celebrated inside the premises of Sitamarhi jail.

NDP fortunes in New Brunswick ahead of the October federal election took another hit Tuesday with a wave of defections to the Greens.

One of the defectors was Jonathan Richardson, the federal NDP's executive member for Atlantic Canada, who said his former party doesn't have a path to victory in any of New Brunswick's 10 ridings.

The NDP has so far failed to nominate a single candidate in New Brunswick with the federal election less than 50 days away. Richardson said racism is a major reason the party can't find candidates.

The former NDP executive member said he travelled around the province often to meet members, and "the racism card came up a lot — especially in the northern part of the province." NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is a practising Sikh and he wears a turban.

"I knew this was going to be a major issue and I did bring that to the election planning committee. That, you know, there is going to have to be a some discussion about race. Because it wasn't going well," Richardson said in an interview Tuesday.

He said some potential NDP candidates were hesitant to run because they thought the electorate wouldn't vote for a party whose leader wore a turban. "That was probably a major, a reason that they felt people wouldn't want to vote for them because that would hold them back."

Another reason the NDP hasn't been able to shore up its New Brunswick roster is the lack of visibility of party leader Singh, he said: "Jagmeet as a leader, or when he was running for leadership, has never visited New Brunswick."

Fourteen candidates who ran for the New Brunswick NDP in the last provincial election announced Tuesday they also were leaving to join the provincial and federal Green parties.

On Tuesday, the provincial and federal Green parties distributed a declaration signed by the 14 former provincial candidates, as well as by Jonathan Richardson, a federal NDP executive member. The letter stated all 15 of them were supporting the provincial and federal Green parties and they "encourage all New Democrats, New Brunswickers and, indeed, all Canadians in voting for the Green Party of Canada this election.

Federal Green party deputy leader Daniel Green says the defections are a sign voters increasingly see the Greens as the true vehicle in federal politics to fight climate change.

"We are reaping the benefits of staying steadfast in our environmental and climate talking points," Green said in an interview Tuesday. "These are things that we really believe in."

He said Green party Leader Elizabeth May has been far more present in New Brunswick than Singh. Green said May, who represents a riding in British Columbia, has family in Atlantic Canada and went to school there. "She is essentially an easterner at heart," he said.

Richardson said Tuesday's announcement was supposed to be primarily about provincial politics. But the defections took on a national tone because he and the 14 other members joined both the provincial and federal Green parties.

Hurricane Dorian regains Category 2 strength ahead of forecast landfall in Canada

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world' s largest security-oriented intergovernmental organization.

As Washington raced to mount a quick response, local governments, sports franchises, schools and cultural institutions moved to try to quell the spread of a virus that has sickened at least 132,300 people worldwide, including more than 1,500 in the United States.

New Brunswick currently has a minority Progressive Conservative government, and the Greens have three seats while the NDP has none. Richardson said he left to join the Greens because they are capable of tabling progressive legislation while the NDP has been shut out of government.

The federal NDP's communications director, Melanie Richer, said Tuesday the party is currently scheduling nomination meetings in six of the 10 New Brunswick ridings to be held "by the end of next week."

As for Richardson's claim that racism is holding the party back in the province, Richer said in an email, "This is disappointing to hear, and I don't think that's true."

"This is not new to Jagmeet," she continued. "Jagmeet has dealt with racism his whole life. Throughout his whole life, he's been told that he hasn't been able to do things because of who he is, and he has overcome it. People see the struggles he's faced and overcome and are proud of him.

"I don't think this statement made by (Richardson) is giving Canadians and the people of New Brunswick enough credit."
