A senior official of the UP Board of Madrassa Education told Swarajya that early success in this regard is evident from the drop in the number of student registrations. For the exams slated for mid-April (the date has not been finalised yet), a total of 273,027 students have registered online on its portal. Last year, the figure was 371,054. While the drop in the number of students is not a reverse trend, it is certainly steep compared to 2016, when 422,635 students had registered.
In the hearings last year, the Union government had said in court that when such a proposal was considered in 2012, it was found unfeasible. The court, however, directed the government to submit an affidavit on the alleged non-feasibility citing “credible material”. When the case came for hearing on 1 March, the failure of the Union government to provide the affidavit led the court to list the matter for further hearing on 28 August. “It’s just getting delayed. We are in a fix.
The residents are also baffled that the trigger of the gruesome episode was a mere water balloon. Such a violent reaction to colours or balloons hurled on Holi, however, isn’t a stray case. In several parts of neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, non-Hindus who do not celebrate Holi, have even resorted to stone-pelting after colour was accidentally sprayed on them. Such incidents were reported from Gonda and Sitapur, among others, this time too.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
