28 March Akhileshheld a meeting of his newly-elected members of Assembly numbering 47 and was unanimously elected as the leader of the SP Legislative Party in both the Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) and Legislative Council (Vidhan parishad) Akhilesh himself is a member of the Council where senior leader Ahmed Hasan leads the party Incidentally senior leaders Shivpal Yadav and Mohammad Azam Khan did not attend the meeting Both won from their respective seats in Jaswantnagar (Etawah) and Rampur Both Shivpal and Azam Khan were expected to be contenders for the SP Legislative Assembly leader’s post but by choosing Akhilesh the legislators have made it clear whose leadership they prefer to follow Another instance of him tightening his control over the party was the manner in which he named the party’s senior most MLA Ram Govind Chaudhary as Leader of Opposition Akhilesh nominated the eight-time MLAon Monday withthe outgoing Speaker Mata Prasad Pandey notifying it But UPgovernor Ram Naik has reportedly put a question mark over the decision saying it was for the new Speaker to notify the Leader of Opposition The governor’s message to the Assembly secretariat on 28 March said: "The question of democratic and constitutional propriety in the Speaker of 16th Legislative Assembly giving recognition to Ram Govind Chaudhary as Leader of Opposition of the 17th Legislative Assembly on the last working day… should be considered" The usual procedure of selecting the Leader of the Opposition includes the majority Opposition party coming up with a name which they propose to the Speaker who then officially "recognises" the individual for the post A Raj Bhawan spokesperson said that on Monday the last working day of the previous Legislative Assembly the Vidhan Sabha Secretariat had issued a notification in which Chaudhary was recognised as Leader of Opposition of the new Assembly by Pandey The governor’s message said that as per tradition only the Speaker of the newly elected Legislative Assembly can give recognition to the new Leader of Opposition and that there has been no such instance in any state especially when the Speaker has not even been elected to the new Assembly It waspointed out that giving recognition to the Leader of Opposition is the Speaker’s discretion and not a Constitutional obligation Another indicator of the party’s power struggle came from the announcement that former SP president Mulayam Singh Yadav had cancelled a dinner meeting with the 47 newly-elected legislators According to party sources ahead of the meeting with Mulayam on Wednesday a message had been spread among the MLAs to attend only those party meetings convened by Akhilesh Mulayam was SP president till January when a special convention of the party passed a resolution naming Akhilesh as the new president positioning Mulayam as ‘patron’ Whether or not he is the leader of SP in either House Akhilesh is giving a clear message to his legislators and party leaders that he calls the shots Mulayam Shivpal and Azam Khan remain where they were before the election results came in – the margins of SP With the confidence that all the 47 legislators owe their allegiance to him Akhilesh is likely to initiate a new brand of confrontation with the BJP government He gave a sample of this recently by taunting chief minister Yogi over his initial orders related to cleanliness punctuality anti-eve-teasing and the ban on illegal slaughter houses and recalled the previous government’s "development work" He has in fact gone to the extent of terming BJP’s victory as a new form of "political corruption" and there seems to be no acknowledgement that the internecine war within the SP could have damaged the party in the election By Sivaram

Inderjeet Singh who returned positive for banned substances last month on Thursday alleged that his dope samples might have been tampered with as the National Anti-Doping Agency gave him two different results on the same sample collected on 29 June a claim denied by the NADA Inderjeet one of the 36 Indian track and field athletes who qualified for the ongoing Rio Olympics circulated documents at a press conference which showed that the National Dope Testing Laboratory had given two different results of the A sample taken on 29 June during the National Inter-State Athletics Championships in Hyderabad File picture of Inderjeet Singh AFP The ‘Analytical Report’ of sample A of June 29 bearing sample code 6172967 said that there was ‘no banned substances detected’ and it was signed by NDTL Scientific Director Alka Beotra dated 11 July 2016 Another ‘Analytical Report of the sample A of June 29 bearing same sample code 6172967 was shown to have traces of banned substances and it was signed by the same NDTL Scientific Director with date of 4 August 2016 "There has been a conspiracy to frame me to bring disrepute to me and to stop me from going to the Olympics I will fight this case till the end How can the same laboratory give two different results on the same sample bearing the same sample code This is a farce" Inderjeet told reporters NADA Director General Navin Agarwal refuted Inderjeet’s claim saying that the NDTL’s reports were consistent as the first one (which said there was no banned substance) was a preliminary report while the second (which showed the presence of banned substance) was the final report of the test on the same sample "Where is the discrepency The NDTL can give two reports one preliminary and the other final The preliminary report may say there was no banned substance It (the preliminary) is a test of limited scope It may not detect some substance The final test may detect banned substances because it’s a more detailed analysis and more sophistaicated" Agarwal told PTI "NDTL is a WADA-accredited laboratory and it is upto international standards I see no inconsistency in the two reports regarding the 29 June sample results Moreover this 29 June result is irrelevant as he tested positive in the 22 June sample That dope failure (of 22 June sample) stands" he added Inderjeet was tested seven times this year and his sample of June 29 had returned positive (both A and B samples) which has resulted him to be barred from boarding the Rio bus But he claimed that since the June 29 test result was unreliable as it has returned with two different results his 22 June sample must also have been tampered with Interestingly the Athletics of Federation of India had also informed Inderjeet in an e-mail communication that his June 29 test result was negative AFI gave this information to Inderjeet on his request "Either they have tested my A sample twice (June 29 sample) which under international rules is illegal since that needs consent of the athlete concerned which NADA has not asked from me Since the June 29 dope test result has discrepency the June 22 results (which returned posotive in both A and B samples) were also unreliable So I will contest that result (of June 22) before the NADA Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel" he added Inderjeet was told on 25 July that he had failed a dope test regarding the sample taken at Bhiwani on 22 June and that virtually ended his Rio dreams It will be very difficult for him to compete in Rio though the shot put event is scheduled for 18 August as the technical committee meeting has ended yesterday to chalk out the final competition schedule But he is still hopeful and said that he will appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi so that his case at the NADA Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel is expedited like in the case of wrestler Narsingh Yadav "I am still hopeful of taking part in the Olympics and want to make the country proud with my performance I appeal to the Prime Minister to look into my case I hope just like in the case of Narsingh Yadav I will get justice and will be able to take part in the Olympics" he added Head of Anglian Medal Hunt

issue which is identified with Tamil culture pride and tradition for almost 3000 years and as a Tamilian he is fully entitled to do so Moreover currently there is a never before seen mass movement

turn of events it is almost clear that the heydays of Sasikala and her Mannargudi clan are almost over It is difficult to predict if Sasikala phoenix-like will rise again to take control of the AIADMK but for the time being her power play in the party has virtually come to an end Clearly corruption has done her and her extended family in Sasikala is already in jail in the disproportionate assets case after her conviction by the trial court was upheld by the Supreme Court overturning the decision of the Karnataka High Court But just before the Supreme Court decision came as a bolt from the blue for her Sasikala had taken control of both the AIADMK party as well the government; she had been elected — though the electoral process was questioned —as the general secretary of the party and the leader of its legislative wing as well; she had staked claim before the governor to be invited to be the chief minister But before she could be sworn in the Supreme Court declared her guilty and she was sent to jail Sasikala had to choose someone to nominally run the party and the government till she came out of jail after three and a half years She could not have chosen her husband M Natarajan as he had earned the wrath of J Jayalalithaa who had expelled him and he is the most reviled man in the public eye But Sasikala was brazen enough to choose her nephew TTV Dinakaran who had also been expelled by Jayalalithaa to warm her place as party chief during her incarceration period In all likelihood Sasikala would have chosen Dinakaran to head the government as well but for the surprise revolt of O Paneerselvam the caretaker chief minister who had resigned the post after Sasikala was elected the legislative party leader Paneerselvam’s rebellion had split the party though only a small minority of the party MLAs (less than 10 percent) had sided with him Sasikala despite having an overwhelming majority of MLAs on her side did not want to take the risk of foisting Dinakaran on the government She chose one of the loyal ministers E Palaniswami to become the chief minister (From left) File images of Tejashwi Yadav and TT Dinakaran Her game plan was quite clear After Jayalalithaa’s death Sasikala did not immediately manouver to become chief minister herself; she ensured that Paneerselvam whom Jayalalithaa had chosen as interim chief minister on two occasions when she was imprisoned stepped in for the third time But in two months Sasikala consolidated her position and showed Paneeselvam the door It is obvious that a similar game plan was on the anvil with Dinakaran being chosen to contest the prestigious RK Nagar seat earlier represented by Jayalalithaa (Sasikala would have contested from this seat had she not been jailed); had the election gone through and if Dinakaran had won (the Election Commission cancelled the bypoll because of excessive money play; Dinakaran had apparently spent Rs 79 crore to win the Assembly election) he would have been pitchforked to the hot seat of the chief minister Palaniswami and his brood of ministers were acutely aware of the sinister game plan; they waited for their chance and revolted when the Delhi police announced an FIR against Dinakaran on charges of corrupt practices and his arrest looked imminent — the endgame for Sasikala and Dinakaran The question is: will a similar situation unfold for Lalu Yadav and his family soon When Lalu Yadav went to jail in the fodder scam case in 1996 he chose his illiterate wife Rabri Devi as his successor and as the chief minister of Bihar He had no trouble in doing so as there was no revolt in the party During his various stints in and out of jail Lalu Yadav served as the proxy chief minister of Bihar After his conviction in the fodder case he was debarred from holding positions for six years So in 2015 he chose his son Tejashwi Yadav who at 26 had come of age to succeed him Tejashwi is now the deputy chief minister of Bihar; he is young and he has a long innings in politics But the recent revelation of his association with a shell company to acquire a plush house in elite New Friends Colony of Delhi has brought him under a thick cloud It has been revealed that a company called AB Exports was constituted in 1996 with the avowed objective of doing import and export business But it never made any business deals and it never had any employees The only transaction it made was to buy a residential building in the trendy New Friends’ Colony in 2008 for Rs 5 crore It was shown that five big jewellery companies contributed Rs 1 crore each to the promoters of AB Exports to buy the house Between 2010 and 2014 the shares of the company (AB Exports) were transferred to Tejashwi and his brother and sister were made directors Through this shady deal Yadav and family have become the owners of a property which is valued at Rs 50 crore at current market prices What puts Tejashwi Yadav in a spot is that he had not declared the ownership of this property in the affidavit submitted to the Election Commission when he contested the Assembly election in November 2015 It is likely that Tejashwi will land in jail for the dubious dealings through a shell company There is a striking parallel in the situation between Dinakaran and Tejashwi Their guardians Sasikala and Yadav have been already indicted and imprisoned on corruption charges But more importantly both face an insurgent BJP which is on a prowl to expand its footprint across the country Dinakaran’s plight would not have come about had the BJP government at the Centre not forced the hands of the Enforcement Directorate and the Delhi police to come down heavily to expose the shenanigans of Dinakaran Sasikala and Dinakaran had no public enmity with the BJP But the BJP leadership is convinced that its best friend to make inroads into the Tamil territory is O Paneerselvam and everything it must do to help him get back to power That explains the rapidly changing political script But Lalu Yadav is a sworn enemy of the BJP The BJP would go to any length to discredit the Lalu clan The current episode of the family’s association with a shell company and dubious acquisition of a prime property through it can clearly build up into a big scandal if the BJP government lets loose the Enforcement Directorate and Delhi police to unravel the case on a priority basis Given the ferocity and aggression of the BJP to demolish its opponents and expand its influence it is not unlikely It is possible that we would soon witness the Lalu Yadav clan go the way of Sasikala clan – drown in the corrupt cesspool of politics New York | Published: March 25 2013 3:45 pm Related News Group fitness classes are taking an ethnic turnexperts say celebrating diversity by reaching

which comprises the four districts of Kokrajhar Udalguri Chirang and Baksa has been burning for years now Related News By: Monica Banerjee Barely a week after Peshawar there was another attack this time within our own borders At least 81 Adivasis who form the majority of the labour force on Assam’s tea plantations were gunned down in Sonitpur and Kokrajhar districts Of this number at least 18 were children and 23 women More than one lakh Adivasis have fled their homes to live in makeshift camps There are nearly 80 of these camps now Assam has been home to Adivasis for more than 300 years Yet many still languish in relief camps set up in 1996 and 1998 in the aftermath of two gruesome riots Bodoland which comprises the four districts of Kokrajhar Udalguri Chirang and Baksa has been burning for years now The ethnic tensions that cut through the land fuelled by militancy are palpable even to the occasional visitor Since 1996 it has been the Adivasis or Bengali-speaking Muslims who become victims in every fresh bout of violence The political alienation and social exclusion of these communities by the Bodos are rooted in the misplaced justification that they are non-natives Assam’s Adivasis who were brought in from central India to work in the tea gardens of Assam are denied the Scheduled Tribe status that their counterparts in other states enjoy Meanwhile Bengali Muslims are stigmatised for being “illegal” immigrants From 1987 the Bodos intensified a long-running political and linguistic-cultural movement for autonomy marked by episodes of violence After 16 years the Centre responded to Bodo demands establishing the Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Districts (BTAD) In the process the Bodos were able to acquire political and social dominance over other smaller groups that also demanded autonomy It is ironic that the Bodos who enjoy political power social legitimacy and economic authority in the BTAD today are gripped with the fear of becoming a minority in their own lands Sporadic incidents of violence never really stopped after the brutal Bodo-Muslim riots of 2012 Often Bodo men women and children have also been at the receiving end of such violence Nevertheless there is the sense of a more polarised civil society emerging based on the idea of a mono-ethnic community Large-scale violence broke out again in May 2014 as Bengali Muslims were targeted by terrorists leaving at least 45 dead Among the dead were several children Some from Bodoland’s political class even tried to ascribe reasons for the attack Bengali Muslims had been targeted because they had not voted for a certain Bodo candidate one Bodo political leader said Civil society organisations in the BTAD also backed the idea that the killings were an election issue not a matter of communal politics But the patterns that have emerged in the recent history of violence in Bodoland tell a different story They point towards the systematic targeting of minorities and smaller ethnic groups by militants The same terror outfit is believed to be behind the killing of Bengali Muslims in May and of Adivasis in December The larger Bodo society and mainstream groups such as the All Bodo Students’ Union have stated they have no sympathies with the terror group But it is difficult to imagine that this violence was not rooted in minority politics and the sense of a demographic threat State agencies should not have missed these signs of volatility The unpreparedness of the state and its failure to protect people has led once again to a mindless act of terrorism Had Bodoland and Assam’s civil society resisted the temptation of seeing the bloodbath in May as electoral violence they might have put some pressure on the state to anticipate and curb the next surge of brutality The killing of the Adivasis might then have been prevented How long will they remain mute spectators to the savagery that erupts periodically in the region The Nellie massacre where armed men of the Lalung tribe cut down at least 3000 Bengali Muslims happened 31 years ago Women and children had been the major victims of that brutality as well The Indian Express has carried reports

Identities are not easy to erase.There isa need to find innovative ways to tackle this identity question Pending that we shouldn’t lose sight of the immediate The immediate issue is about discrimination based on caste Article 17 of our Constitution has effectively and fully sought to abolish untouchability and enforcing any disability on the basis of so-called low and high caste discrimination Towards that end we have also promulgated the Protection of Civil Rights Act 1955 which made the offence of violating Article 17 punishable But has it really ended discrimination Why is a Dalit however well-educated and well-placed he may be forced to hide his identity Why is it that a leader from among Dalits is always seen only as a “Dalit leader” which is not the case with other leaders Hierarchical casteism is entrenched in the social psyche and that is where the battle is Today we are living in an era of caste assertion In order for social unity and harmony to be well-maintained we need to keep the discourse on track In the mid-1990s a Dalit sub-caste in Andhra Pradesh started using their caste name as a suffix to their names This in their view was a proud assertion of their identity This act led to serious discussion among the intelligentsia Many were worried that casteism was staging a comeback But a simple and profound question asked by a Dalit intellectual put the discussion to rest In Andhra people belonging to several non-Dalit castes use their caste name as a suffix This has been the practice for long Never did the question of growing casteism arise when Sharma or Shastry or Reddy was used as a suffix Why this concern when a Dalit does the same This calls for a deeper understanding of the discourse within caste groups For political correctness one may declare that there is no discrimination in Hinduism and that a Dalit has an equal right to study the Vedas and become on par with a Brahmin But the question a Dalit will ask is about this notion of “on par” Why can’t it be that a Dalit reads the Vedas and still remains what he is Why should he be doing it in order to become “on par” with some other caste This is the real discourse that we need to address We assume that the Dalit discourse is all about more reservations and more jobs No doubt reservations are important and so are jobs But the hunger today is for four things: Samman (respect and dignity) sahbhagita (participation and partnership) samriddhi (progress and prosperity) and finally satta (empowerment) The government can take care of the last two but the first two are the responsibility of society Social and religious organisations have to take responsibility for addressing the Dalit hunger for samman and sahbhagita That is when social equality is achieved Ambedkar was right when he warned the nation about it “On the 26th of January 1950 we are going to enter into a life ofcontradictions In politics we will have equality and in social and economic life wewill have inequality In politics we will be recognising the principle of one man one vote and one vote one value In our social and economic life we shall by reason of oursocial and economic structure continue to deny the principle of one man one value How long shall we continue to live this lifeof contradictions How long shall we continue to deny equality in our social
