A split appeared imminent in former Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi-led Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular) ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, as State president Brishen Patel quit the party on Wednesday. Party spokesperson Danish Rizwan too resigned on Wednesday, alleging “bungling” in party fund. The HAM(S) is a constituent of the Grand Alliance in Bihar.Saying that all is not well in the party, Mr. Patel, however, clarified that he would remain with the Grand Alliance. “At a time when all Opposition parties supported West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC leader Mamata Banerjee on her protest against the CBI, our party president stated that she should not have staged dharna (protest) against CBI… I think it was not the right statement,” Mr. Patel said. He also criticised Mr. Rizwan’s displeasure over mismanagement at the recently held Congress rally in Patna. “It sounds ridiculous when the party president was present in the rally, the spokesperson was pointing fingers at it”, Mr. Patel added. Mr. Rizwan had said that the “rally was organised like a novice…they should have invited alliance partners”. In a letter to the party president, Mr. Rizwan alleged that “some party leaders have been indulging in anti-party activities and also involved in financial mismanagement of party fund”. “Being a true soldier of the party, I cannot be a mute spectator to all this, so I’m resigning from the party post and the primary membership of the party,” he added.HAM(S) sources told The Hindu that a split is imminent in the party as several leaders are set to resign in days to come. The HAM (S) had formally joined the Grand Alliance in February 2018 after its exit from the National Democratic Alliance.Mr. Manjhi, who has so far not commented on the latest developments inside his party, had expressed disapproval of the views expressed by Mr. Rizwan and similar comments by another party spokesman, Vijay Yadav.

Share Friday, September 28, 2018Top afternoon stories:Win McNamee/Pool Photo via APJudge Brett Kavanaugh.Republicans advance KavanaughAfter a flurry of last-minute negotiations, the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court after agreeing to a late call from Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona for a one week investigation into sexual assault allegations against the high court nominee.However, it’s unclear if Republican leaders — or President Donald Trump — will support Flake’s call for the investigation or might instead press forward with a full Senate vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.The dramatic scene unfolded a day after Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified in an emotional, hours-long hearing. Kavanaugh angrily denied the allegations that he assaulted Ford while they were both in high school, while she said she was “100 percent” certain he was her attacker.Marcio Jose Sanchez/APMark Zuckerberg.50 Million Facebook accounts affected by security breachFacebook says it recently discovered a security breach affecting nearly 50 million user accounts.The hack is the latest setback for Facebook during a year of tumult for the global social media service.In a blog post , the company says hackers exploited its “View As” feature, which lets people see what their profiles look like to someone else.
