PM And Amit Shah Wrong On UP Crime Data – Free Press Release Submit

Uttar Pradesh (UP) has reached “number one” in crime, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on February 5, 2017, repeating the claim five days later. Similarly, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah said on February 3, 2017, that states ruled by the BJP have a better law-and-order record than UP.

Uttar Pradesh (UP) has reached “number one” in crime, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on February 5, 2017, repeating the claim five days later. Similarly, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah said on February 3, 2017, that states ruled by the BJP have a better law-and-order record than UP.
The crime situation has been a constant refrain in the electoral battle for India’s most populous state, but the facts–garnered from the Centre’s own crime database–did not support the assertions made by Modi and Shah. In 2015 (the year for which latest data are available), we found that, compared to UP, 27 states and union territories (UTs) had a higher rate of rapes, 21 had a higher murder rate, 19 had a higher rate of kidnapping and abduction, 16 had a higher rate of riots and 18 had higher theft rates.
We also found that many BJP-ruled states had higher crime rates than UP.
A caveat: Crime data nationwide are, often, not an accurate reflection of crime because they are compiled by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), a division of the union home ministry, with data sent by the states.
Some crimes, such as rape and assault, could be hidden or not reported, but others that result in a body–such as murder or dowry death–are harder to hide. For instance, Bihar–India’s third-most-populous state, with the country’s poorest people–has a crime rate lower than more prosperous states with fewer people, such as Gujarat, Kerala, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, as IndiaSpend reported in May 2016. We also reported in March 2015 how UP was misrepresenting some crime and health data.
In general, while northern states tend to under-report crime than those in the south, their crime data largely reflect crime trends.
Modi’s claim: UP is “number 1” in crime, with 24 rapes, 21 attempts to rape, 13 murders, 33 kidnappings, 19 riots and 136 thefts every day.
Fact: The crime rate is calculated per 100,000 population, and by that measure, there are many states with higher rates. Even considering the “per day” measure, rapes registered in UP were a third of what Modi claimed while attempts to rape registered were 4.7% of his claim, although figures for murders, kidnappings, riots and thefts in “per-day” terms are correct with regard to 2015 crime statistics.
Crimes registered per 100,000 people is the appropriate measure, not “per day”: Large states are likely to register the highest number of crimes in absolute terms, although most northern states tend to under-report crime, as we said. UP has 216 million people (2015 mid year projected population), more than any other state and more than every country, save four. An accurate measure of crimes is the rate at which they are committed per 100,000 population. This is called the “crime rate”. The NCRB does not use a “per day” measure.
The rape and attempt-to-rape statistics Modi quoted are inflated by three and 21 times, respectively: There were 3,050, 3,467 and 3,025 rapes registered in UP in 2013, 2014 and 2015, according to NCRB data. Translated to “per day” terms, that is eight in 2013, nine in 2014 and eight in 2015. If Modi was using 2015 data, the latest available, he has inflated the actual figure by three times.
Similarly, in 2014 and 2015, attempts to rape registered in UP were 324 and 422, respectively, or about one per day–4.7% of Modi’s claim.
UP’s murder rate was 22nd, among 36 states and UTs in 2015, down from 2014: UP’s murder rate was 22nd in 2015, 19th in 2014, 21st in 2013 and 22nd in 2012. The murder rate (murders per 100,000 population) in UP has fallen from 2.4 in 2012 to 2.2 in 2015, while the national murder rate has been 2.8 in 2012 and 2.6 in 2015. There were 13 states with a population greater than 10 million with a murder rate higher than UP’s in 2015.
Rate of rape–27 States and UTs had higher rates of rape than UP in 2015: The rate of rapes reported in UP rose to 1.6 (per 100,000 population) in 2014, from 1.0 in 2012, but fell to 1.4 in 2015. The national average for rate of rapes in 2012 was 2.1; it rose to three in 2014 and fell to 2.8 in 2015. There were 27 states and UTs with higher rates of rapes than UP in 2015, including 15 states with a population more 10 million.
Kidnapping and abduction–19 States and UTs had higher rates than UP’s in 2015: Kidnapping and abductions in UP rose from 4.3 per 100,000 population in 2012 to 5.8 in 2014, falling to 5.6 in 2015. Nationally, the kidnapping and abduction rate in 2015 was 6.6 per 100,000 population, rising from 3.9 in 2012. In 2015, there were 13 states with population more than 10 million with a higher kidnapping and abduction rate than UP.
Rate of riots rise in UP, national average declines, 16 States and UTs had higher riots rates in 2015: Riots cases in UP rose to 3.2 per 100,000 population in 2015 from 2.8 in 2012, while the national average declined from 6.2 in 2012 to 5.2 in 2015. UP ranked 17th in the rate of riots in 2015, while 12 states with population more than 10 million had a higher rate.
Theft rate in UP–18 States and UTs had higher rates in 2015: Thefts in UP rose from 18.2 per 100,000 population in 2012 to 22.9 in 2015, lower than the national average, which also increased to 37.2 in 2015 from 27.8 in 2012. There were 11 states with a population more than 10 million which reported higher rates than UP.
Amit Shah’s claim: 14 states ruled by the BJP have a better law-and-order record than UP.
Fact: Of 13 BJP-administered states in 2015, six report higher murder rates, 12 higher rates of rapes, nine higher rates of kidnapping and abduction, five higher rates of riots and eight higher theft rates. We have included the national capital territory of Delhi among BJP-ruled states: Although it is governed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi’s law and order is centrally administered by the union ministry of home affairs. In 2015, the BJP was in power in eight states–Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa and Jharkhand–on its own, and was a coalition partner in the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh and Nagaland.
In 2015, the BJP-administered states of Jharkhand, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi and Punjab reported higher rate of murder per 100,000 population than UP.
In 2015, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Goa, Haryana, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Andhra Pradesh and Nagaland reported higher rate of rapes per 100,000 population than UP. Delhi’s rate of rapes was 7.5 times that of UP.
The BJP-administered states of Delhi, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Punjab and Goa had higher kidnapping and abduction rates than UP in 2015.
The BJP-administered states of Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand and Goa reported higher rates of riots than UP in 2015.
Eight BJP-administered states of Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Goa, Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand reported higher theft rates than UP in 2015.

Anchor Pest Control, the Premier NJ Pest Control Company, Now Offers Preventative Yearly Service Plans – Free Press Release Submit

Anchor Pest Control of New Jersey is offering yearly preventative bed bug control plans to help homeowners save money by preventing home infestations.

Old Bridge, NJ – Anchor Pest Control of New Jersey is offering yearly preventative bed bug control plans to help homeowners save money by preventing home infestations. Using safe and effective preventative chemical treatments, New Jersey’s leading pest control company can help homeowners avoid bed bug infestations before they even start. At a cost of less than 1/3 of a post-infestation treatment, the Anchor Pest Control yearly packages include multiple K-9 inspections and preventative chemical treatments.

Most bed bug problems occur in residential and multi-family locations. Because bed bugs infestations are not affected by cleanliness, they are not as easy to prevent as roaches, ants, and other pests. Consider these facts:
– One in five Americans has had a bed bug infestation or knows someone who has encountered bed bugs.– Densely populated areas, like much of New Jersey, tend to have higher rates of infestation.– Preventative treatments have been found to be nearly 100 percent effective in preventing bed bug infestations.– These preventative services cost about 1/3 of the cost of eliminating an infestation.– Homeowners save thousands in the repair and replacement costs of mattresses, linens, and just about everything else in their home by preventing an infestation, rather than trying to eliminate one after it has started.– There is little to no time loss with a preventative program, whereas a full infestation can cost a homeowner days in a hotel and days lost from work.
Anchor Pest Control created their preventative maintenance program to help their customers avoid the hassle and stress of a bed bug infestation.
“We would rather prevent an infestation than to have one of our customers have to suffer with the pain, hassle, and frankly, fear of having a bed bug infestation. One mother who had an infestation recently cried to me about how terrible she felt. She would get her children up in the morning and see tiny blood stains on the sheets from the bugs biting her kids in the middle of the night. I don’t ever want to have that conversation again.” – Carmen Reino, Owner of Anchor Pest Control
Anchor Pest Control offers commercial and residential pest control services throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Bed bugs, termites, rodents and other forms of pests have been handled for more than 25 years by this team of professionals. Their innovative Bug ID Service is just the latest tool they have brought to their customers to protect them from creatures of all shapes and sizes.

'Keep sex abuse dad's name off my wedding certificate'

If Jenny ever gets married, there will be no dad walking her down the aisle and, if she gets her way, no mention of him on her marriage certificate either.
This is because, according to the twenty-something professional, the man who sexually abused her for 18 months from the age of seven “lost any right to be called my father”.

Despite his horrific betrayal of the relationship between father and daughter, under current law it is only his name and occupation that can be recorded on her future marriage certificate – not that of her mother “who has been mum and dad all wrapped up in one”.
Images: cheap bridesmaid dresses australia
This system, of recording only the names of the father of the bride and groom on the certificate, dates back to the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign.
It is an issue that has provoked anger among MPs from all parties, who have spent several years attempting to bring about a change in the law to allow both parents to have their names and occupations recorded.
Their campaign was given a boost when a petition on Change.org, calling for mothers’ names to be added to marriage certificates, collected 70,600 signatures in January 2014. The petition said “marriage should not be seen as a business transaction between the father of the bride and the father of the groom”.
Former Prime Minister David Cameron said later that year that he would address this “inequality in marriage”, adding that the exclusion of mothers’ names from marriage registers in England and Wales did “not reflect modern Britain”.
Mr Cameron was gone from Downing Street before any action was taken and it now seems that Conservative MP Edward Argar’s Registration of Marriage Bill is the most likely vehicle to overturn the law.
His bill, which would update the Marriage Act of 1949, would move the solely paper-based system to a central electronic register online, which would allow the mother’s name to be included.
It would also bring England and Wales into line with the rest of the UK. In Scotland and Northern Ireland, couples are asked to give the names of both parents on marriage documentation. The same applies for those entering a civil partnership.
Similar attempts by Labour and Conservative MPs to change the law fell in 2015 after failing to get ministers’ support. Labour frontbencher Christina Rees’ private member’s bill focused on the narrow point about putting the mother on the certificate. Former Conservative cabinet minister Dame Caroline Spelman’s billwanted marriages listed in a single electronic register instead of in marriage register books.
Former home office minister Richard Harrington said at the time “a combination” of the two bills “could deal with things quickly”.
Unlike his predecessors’, Mr Argar’s bill – which is more like Dame Caroline’s attempt – has succeeded in getting government backing because it will create a more secure system for keeping marriage records.
“The whole point of this bill is the mothers and fathers of the bride and groom will be registered,” said the Charnwood MP. “In the great scheme of things it’s a minor change, but it’s symbolically very important for a large number of people who want a recognition of the role their mother played in their upbringing.”
He added: “It will also give victims of abuse, children of single mothers or errant fathers, the choice over whether to include their mother’s names and not their father’s.
“You will see virtually no outward change in the form of the marriage ceremony, just in the manner that things are recorded. By moving to an online schedule system, we can easily amend the paper documentation – and it’s more secure because it doesn’t rely on the old parish register that is at risk of theft from the village church.
“The church is supportive of the move, and over time it will save the taxpayer millions of pounds in administrative costs.”
The bill is set to return to the Commons for its detailed committee stage after the half-term recess, and Mr Argar is hopeful it will receive Royal Assent – and so become law – by the summer.
A spokesman for the Home Office said it wanted to see mothers’ names recorded on marriage certificates “as soon as possible”.
Mum’s done everything
For Jenny, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, the law change cannot come soon enough.
“My dad’s a rapist and he abused me and my sisters, so I never want any reference to him appearing on anything about my future,” she said. “He has no right to that – he lost that right many years ago.
“I was only seven when the attacks started, and my siblings were much younger. It ended after I told my mother when I was eight and a half.
“I’ve tried to block out what he did to me.
“I have a partner and I’m sure we will get married eventually, but I don’t want my father involved in any way. I’d only want my mum’s name on the marriage certificate because as far as I’m concerned she’s done everything for us.”
