For Modi the benefits of prising the regional parties away from the Congress’ leadership are obvious The Congress is providing the strongest opposition for example to the goods and services tax (especially the constitutional amendment) but West Bengal as a potential big beneficiary in a consuming state is an ally While Mamata and Jaya’s supportalone will not guarantee a smooth ride for Modi in the upper House it may just help Modi pull past the Congress numbers in the Rajya Sabha AIADMK has 11 seats in the RS TMC has 12 members Together 23 members from both the parties in the Rajya Sabha will provide a big boost in getting many Bills such as the Land Bill and GST Bill passed NDA currently has 60 MPs in the Upper House which is way below the halfway mark of 123 in the 245-member House As a Telegraph report points out it goes up to 62 if the PDP the BJP’s Jammu and Kashmir partner is also counted inThe Congress has 68 MPs in the Rajya Sabha and can count on those the UPA had nominated as well as some other allies taking its tally to 94 What this means is that BJP needs to strike up separate quid-pro quo like deals with regional parties such asTrinamool AIADMK Janata Dal and JDU "BJP is short of majority in RS and it desperately needs support of other parties when Opposition stands united on Land Bill This keeps going on in politics. cooperation with other parties goes hand-in-hand with consolidation of own party organisation" a party insider was quoted as saying by India Today Updated: April 22 2014 11:08 pm Justice Verma had no hesitation in upholding the rights of gay people For him it was simply a matter of human dignity that nobody has the right to trample on it in the name of the majority PTI Related News A year after his death JS Verma’s legacy lives on in the struggle for individual rights If those eyes were not twinkling when looking at you that meant trouble Justice JS Verma had that near-mischievous glint in his eyes most of the time except on the rare occasions when he was angry Those same eyes could look cold and hard and the person facing them knew for sure that this was judgement day I have seen those eyes quell representatives of big industrial houses TV anchors with giant reputations politicians with make-believe charisma and senior editors too If any of them had done something wrong and that matter came up for Justice Verma’s consideration they could expect no kindness only justice But if there was room for clemency Justice Verma would be the first to hand it out I had the privilege of working under his leadership in the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) for roughly six years and what a great period that was I saw professional integrity at close quarters learnt what it meant to give dignity to citizens and realised how important it was to look for the best in others While I was still trying to consolidate all of these traits in me Justice Verma passed away and that was unjust On one occasion we were to discuss the complaint of a leading business magnate when we found a stranger in our midst He happened to be the emissary of this corporate big-shot bringing a letter of apology from his boss to Justice Verma The letter was not accepted and the person was politely told to leave with the admonition that in future the organisation he represented should behave more professionally It was much later that I realised that the night before the industrialist actually had the gall to telephone Justice Verma at his house to explain his side of the dispute Justice Verma sized up the situation instantly and asked his caller if he thought so poorly of judges that he felt a chat was necessary barely 24 hours before his case was to be heard It was to repair this damage that the boss had sent his deputy with an apology letter that afternoon which Justice Verma did well to turn down and in the process hopefully taught him a valuable lesson A senior editor once told me that Justice Verma had reneged on his principles by not allowing a certain matter to be heard by the NBSA I thought he was being unfair and protested against his interpretation but made absolutely no headway This compelled me to call Justice Verma immediately and hand over the phone to this reputed journalist In less than a minute I heard the gentleman apologise profusely to Justice Verma I don’t know what Justice Verma might have said but I do know that the scribe in front of me was expressing the deepest regret Justice Verma was that quick in sorting people out We all know of his landmark Vishaka judgment which he delivered while he was still chief justice of India After this verdict sexual harassment at the workplace had a concrete definition which even meant that a number of innuendos could no longer pass off as harmless tomfoolery If women are gaining ground outside their homes today it is because Vishaka has given them the muscle to fight and fight they have on a number of occasions Today this judgment is the cornerstone of nearly all office and business procedures in major public and private organisations At the NBSA we were once faced with a complaint by some sex workers that their privacy had been invaded I was mildly amused at what I thought was the irony behind it all Sex workers complaining about privacy That did seem a little contrived Justice Verma on the other hand took the matter very seriously and demanded an explanation from the channel that had done a sting operation on them In his unqualified view dignity was everybody’s right and the right to privacy was an important and essential ingredient of that dignity He did not have a moment’s hesitation in passing the strictest stricture against the channel and I said to myself: “Call yourself lucky you have just learnt an object lesson” Likewise Justice Verma had no hesitation in upholding the rights of gay people Once again it was about individual rights He did not refer to them as “beautiful” people or something equally fetching nor was he overflowing with patronising generosity For him it was simply a matter of human dignity that nobody has the right to trample on it in the name of the majority If he had been alive today his voice could not have been ignored by the Supreme Court and Section 377 would have been history by now It was this same disdain for majority passions that led Justice Verma to weigh in against the government of Gujarat after the 2002 massacre At that time he was chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission and he spoke against the Gujarat government’s handling of the mass killings most unambiguously and unequivocally He even upbraided Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee for not doing enough to halt the killings in Gujarat As Justice Verma said Vajpayee did not issue directives to the Gujarat authorities and what is more “he did not even comment” Vajpayee is now portrayed as a bit of an avuncular figure by both the right and the not-so-right but his double talk during 2002 was not helpful at all Justice Verma rest in peace and may those eyes twinkle in the night sky The writer is member of the NBSA on the board of directors of RBI and NABARD and distinguished professor Shiv Nadar University Greater Noida [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by New York
