PARLIAMENT BUDGET SESSION RESUMES TODAYThe second leg of the Budget session of Parliament that begins Monday islikely to start on a stormy note with the Congress deciding to raise theissue of the riots in northeast Delhi last week and demand the resignationof Home Minister Amit Shah.Top Congress leaders met at party chief Sonia Gandhi's residence to decidethe strategy to be adopted in Parliament. Sources said notices have beengiven in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha seeking suspension of allbusiness to discuss the situation in Delhi."We will certainly raise the Delhi issue vigorously. The unprecedentedcommunal violence which we have seen in the heart of the Capital. is anutter failure of this government. it is because of their laxity, if notconspiracy," Congress leader in the Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, said.He said the Congress was in touch with other opposition parties for evolvinga common strategy. "We will demand the resignation of the Home Minister," hesaid. The first signal that the Congress would be aggressive over theviolence in Delhi came last week when the party's Working Committee saidthere was deliberate inaction on the part of the Central and Stategovernments. The CWC had argued that the responsibility for the riots mustbe borne by the Central government and particularly the Home Minister.The Opposition, so far, has not come together on the Delhi riots. TheCongress, for instance, has attacked both the BJP government and the AamAadmi Party government in Delhi, accusing both of inaction.The other parties, however, have not attacked the Arvind Kejriwalgovernment. It was perhaps because of this that the Congress approached thePresident alone while a group of other parties, which included the AAP, CPM,CPI, NCP, DMK and the RJD, wrote to the President separately. The TrinamoolCongress too has been silent on the Kejriwal government, and the SP and BSPtoo. It is to be seen how the opposition parties forge a common strategy inParliament against this backdrop.FREE VOICE CALLS NO EXCUSE FOR POOR SERVICE QUALITY, SAYS TRAI CHIEFTelcos are citing free voice calls to duck action on poor quality ofservice, but that will not pass regulatory muster, Trai Chairman R S Sharmasaid on Sunday, assuring users that the issue of call drops remains on itsagenda.The TRAI head said the watchdog's earlier provision for a penalty on telcomfirms for call drops was successfully challenged in the Supreme Court, butthe regulator will continue to work for improving the quality of service."Most of the telcos are offering voice free, their argument is that ifsomething is free, how much can you (Trai) punish me because I am notgetting anything for that, which may not be correct because they areessentially cross-subsidising," Sharma said at the Asia Economic Dialogue inPune.The comments come amid continuing call drops being experienced bysubscribers across the country.RELIANCE JIO SEEKS GOVT'S PERMISSION FOR TRIAL OF SELF-DESIGNED 5GIn a first by an Indian telco, Reliance Jio has sought permission from thegovernment to undertake 5G trials based on technology and design developedby it.

Hi Jenna! I made a new design, and i wanted to show it to you.
It's quite clean and it's inspired from Bulkit.

FYI it was done in less than a day.
Great to hear it. Just send me the PSD files so i can have a look at it.
And if you have a prototype, you can also send me the link to it.
