Former Reggae Boyz striker and captain Luton Shelton is trying to get his career back on track, but is being stalled by a series of injuries.After spending a decade as a professional player overseas, Shelton returned to Harbour View FC in an effort to recover from injuries after his contract with Volga Nizhny Nougorod in Russia ended last year.Shelton is registered with local club Harbour View, where he started as a youth player, and made the transition to the senior team. He left Harbour View in 2006 and joined Helsingborg in Sweden on contract.Harbour View’s general manager Clyde Jureidini confirmed the move in a recent chat with The Gleaner.”He (Shelton) is registered to play for Harbour View, but is not playing due to injuries,” Jureidini said. “He is out of contract. That is why he is here to play in the Red Stripe Premier League.””Luton has been trying to recover from injuries. We are trying to get his career back on track,” Jureidini further stated.Shelton is Jamaica’s all-time record goalscorer, with 35 strikes in 75 games. He also played at international clubs such as Sheffield United, Valerenga and Karabukspor.
A full-scale war of words broke out Sunday between Narendra Modi and Mayawati over the Alwar gang-rape incident, with the Prime Minister accusing the Bahujan Samaj Party chief of “shedding crocodile tears”, a charge trashed by her as his “dirty politics”.Addressing election rallies in Kushinagar and Deoria in eastern Uttar Pradesh, Mr. Modi mounted a scathing attack on the BSP chief and dared her to withdraw support to the Congress government in Rajasthan if she was really serious about the incident.Continuing his tirade at the opposition, the Prime Minister said, “The biggest example of how the ‘mahamilawat’ (highly adulterated) SP-BSP-Congress alliance actually works is Rajasthan. A Dalit daughter is gang-raped and there is a government of the Congress and ‘naamdaar’ (dynast). And the Rajasthan government is not a dispensation which enjoys full majority. It is working with the support of BSP. It is busy in hushing up the matter.”‘Dirty politics’Hours after his remark, Ms. Mayawati charged the Prime Minister with doing “dirty politics” over the Alwar gang rape and demanded his resignation for incidents of Dalit atrocities in the past.“In the wake of this (Alwar) incident, Modi is doing dirty politics. The BSP will for sure take an appropriate political decision in the absence of stringent and proper legal action in the case,” Ms. Mayawati said in a press note responding to the Prime Minister’s challenge to her to withdraw support to the Gehlot government. The Congress government in Rajasthan has been accused by both the Prime Minister and the BSP chief of brushing the case aside for political gains.After Mr. Modi’s barb, Ms. Mayawati retorted with a list of incidents on which she said the Prime Minister should take moral responsibility and resign from his post. “The BSP will take a required political decision soon, but why is PM Modi not taking moral responsibility for the incidents in the past, such as the Una flogging incident, Rohith Vemula case or other cases pertaining to Dalit atrocities? Why is he not resigning?” the BSP press note issued in Lucknow stated.On April 26, the gang-rape victim was travelling with her husband on a motorcycle when the accused stopped them. They allegedly beat the husband and raped her in front of him.
