National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and People’s Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday condemned the Centre’s decision to delimit sale of non-agricultural land in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Centre has announced new rules that allow any Indian citizen to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir. As per the notification issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, no domicile or permanent resident certificate is required for purchasing non-agricultural land in Jammu and Kashmir. However, agricultural land can only be purchased by agriculturalists or people engaged in farm-related activities.

Not acceptable: Omar Abdullah

Speaking to India Today TV, NC leader Omar Abdullah said that the new land laws were unacceptable.

“They are intended to change the demography of this place,” Omar Abdullah said.

The NC leader claimed that the new land laws were created because the BJP cannot tolerate a Muslim majority state in the country

Work begins on prime West Shore land in Tampa, then is shut down

TAMPA – The rattlesnakes were the tip-off.

Just as the redevelopment of a prime tract on S West Shore Boulevard finally got underway this fall, the clearing of trees and dense overgrowth sent snakes slithering across the busy street and into nearby yards. City inspectors sent out to investigate quickly issued a “stop work” order and now the Isles at Old Tampa Bay is on hold.

“We have city approved plans for our scope of work, but inadvertently did not secure the required permits to implement the approved plans,” said a statement from the developers, Tampa-based DeBartolo Development and Avanti Properties Group of Winter Park. “We are currently working with the city to acquire permits needed to continue work on the property.”

But the unpermitted work has left a desolate landscape where irreplaceable grand oaks stood until a few weeks ago.

Real estate investors leave cities for countryside to start homestays

A new movement has arisen among real estate investors amid the pandemic – leaving large cities for the countryside where they open a homestay or farmstay to meet people’s demand to be close to nature.

Nguyen Thu Hang in Hanoi never thought that she would buy land in the countryside. But she changed her mind after she learned about homestays and realized that she would be able to earn money with the business model.

With VND1.5 billion in hand, Hang initially planned to buy an apartment in Hanoi for lease. However, because of Covid-19, there have been no tenants.

With this amount of money, she can buy a large land plot in the countryside with beautiful landscape to develop tourism services. She intends to provide services under the ‘farmstay’ model, i.e tourists can stay and experience production and daily life activities in rural areas.

US Announces Planned $2.37 Billion Weapon Sale to Taiwan | Political News

By ROBERT BURNS, AP National Security Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration on Monday notified Congress of plans for a $2.37 billion sale of Harpoon missile systems to Taiwan just hours after Beijing announced sanctions on U.S. defense contractors, including Boeing, the lead contractor on the Harpoon deal.

“The United States maintains an abiding interest in peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and considers the security of Taiwan central to the security and stability of the broader Indo-Pacific region,” the State Department said. It said the sale would not alter the military balance in the region.

Harpoon missiles are capable of striking ships and land targets. Boeing says the missile uses GPS-aided inertial navigation and delivers a 500-pound blast warhead. It can target coastal defense sites, surface-to-air missile sites, exposed aircraft, ships in port, and port and industrial facilities.

Earlier Monday, China said it was imposing sanctions on

It was built between 1897 and 1900 and is the largest remaining example of Neoclassical Revival architecture from the Gilded Age, according to a report about haunted homes by Top Ten Real Estate Deals.

Built by industrialist and prolific art collector Peter A.B. Widener, the grand home even had a sad beginning. In 1896, while living on Broad Street in Philadelphia, Widener’s wife died on board the family’s yacht off the coast of Maine. While in mourning, Widener didn’t want to stay at the Philadelphia townhouse, and decided to build a “comfortable” home for him and his children.

The home, rumored to have cost Widener $8 million to build, had
