Raipur: Amid political jostling in the ruling Congress in Chhattisgarh, six party
MLAs left the state capital for Delhi on Friday. Among MLAs seen at the Chhattis-
garh airport were Shishupal Sori, Santram Netam, Kismat Lal, Ram Kumar Yadav,
Kawasi Lakhma and KK Dhruv. Santram Netam said that he was going to Delhi
for “personal reason” and the presence of other MLAs at the airport was merely a
coincidence. He added that any meeting with senior party leaders will be a part of
the routine they follow when they visit the national capital.
Punjab is land of punj
(five) aab (water). It is
made up of five rivers.
Similarly, Chhattisgarh has
derived its name from ‘chhattis’
(thirty six) ‘garh’ (fort). No other
states have numbers in their
names. There is no other similarity
between the two states.

PM MODI SLAMS OPPOSITION
OVER FARM REFORMS CRITICISM
New Delhi: Accusing
the opposition of “intel-
lectual dishonesty” and
“political deceit” over its
criticism of his govern-
ment’s three farm laws,
PM Narendra Modi says
tough and big decisions
need to be taken to bring
benefits to citizens who
should have received
them decades ago.
Stoutly defending the
agri laws during an in-
terview, Modi said it is
one thing if a political
party makes a promise
and is unable to deliver
on it but what is a “par-
ticularly undesirable”
and “detestable” trait is
some of these parties
made promises on the
lines of the reforms en-
actedbyhisgovernment
and have now done a U-
turn and spread “the
most malicious kind of
misinformation on the
promises they them-
selves had made”.

UNREALISTIC
CUTOFFS IN DU WILL
SHATTER MANY A
STUDENTS’ DREAM
utoffs in Delhi Uni-
versity Colleges for
u n d e r g r a d u a t e
courses have risen to
unrealistically high
levels. The 98 and 99 percent cut-
offs of pre-Covid years are his-
tory as DU colleges, at least
seven of them, have a cutoff of
100 percent. For another 94 pro-
grammes in various colleges is
fixed at 99 percent.
This has made getting admis-
sions even in programmes like
journalism beyond a large num-
ber of students. Some of the DU
colleges like SRCC, Hindu Col-
lege, Hansraj and LSR always
had high cutoffs but they have
been raised further because of
liberal marking by the CBSE
and some state boards.
Over 9,200 students with 100
percent marks sought admis-
sions in DU colleges making it
obvious that hundreds of others
with 99 percent will be wonder-
ing if the exam system has been
a little unfair to them as they
will be pushed by the glut of 100
percent. Even those with 100
percent marks may not be lucky
to get a college of their choice.

dents will be able to quaran-
tine at home for seven days if
fully vaccinated with a TGA-

The recognised vaccines
include those already ap-
proved for use in Australia by
Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moder-
na and Johnson and John-
son/Janssen, as well as Sino-
vac and Covishield (Cov-
ishield is AstraZeneca’s vac-
cine made in India).

Those who can’t be vacci-
nated, including young chil-
dren and those with a medi-
cal exemption, will be count-
ed as vaccinated for travel.
Arrival caps will also be
abolished for fully vaccinat-
ed returnees.
Today’s announcement is
one big step towards allowing

A
BJP HAS NO EFFECTIVE
OPPOSITION TO FACE!
For me the past week has
been one of despair and
disgust. The Bhartiya
Janata Party must be in
a joyous mood. It has no
worthwhile or affective
Opposition to face. This
is not a comforting
development for our
democracy
am writing this on Mahatma
Gandhi’s one hundredth and
fifty second birth anniversa-
ry
. Had he been alive today, he
would probably have commit-
ted suicide seeing the present
state of the Congress party.
Three individuals have all
but made the Congress non-
functional. I doubt if any
member of the so called High
Command has read Gandhi’s
“The Story of My Experi-
ments with Truth.”
For me the past week has
been one of despair and dis-
gust. The Bhartiya Janata
Party must be in a joyous
mood. It has no worthwhile or
effective Opposition to face.
This is not a comforting devel-
opment for our democracy
.
To divert my mind from the
prevailing political muck, I
am re-reading DG Ten-
dulkar’s volume two of his
biography of the Mahatma. It
was published in 1951.
Gandhiji was arrested on
10th March 1922 at the Sabar-
mati Ashram.
The offence was his writ-
ing three articles in “Young
India” of which he was edi-
tor. His trail began on Satur-
day, March 18, before Mr
Broomfield, ICS, the District
and Sessions Judge,
Ahmedabad.
The charges were read out.
Gandhiji said, “I plead guilty
of all charges.”
Judge: Mr Gandhi, do you
wish to make a statement.
Gandhi: I would like to
make a statement.
Judge: Could you give me
in writing to put it on record.?
Gandhi: I shall give it as
soon as I finish reading it.
Before reading his written
statement he spoke ex-tempo-
re. I quote para two : “I want-
ed to avoid violence. Non-vio-
lence is the first article of my
faith. It is also the last article
of my creed. I had either to
submit to a system which I
considered had done irrepa-
rable harm to my country or
incur the risk of the mad
furry of my people bursting
forth. I know that my people
have sometimes gone mad. I
am deeply sorry for it and I
am, therefore, here to submit
not to a light penalty, but to
the highest penalty. I do not
ask for mercy. I do not plead
any extenuating act. I am
here, therefore, to invite and
cheerfully submit to the high-
est penalty that can be inflict-
ed upon me for what in law is
a deliberate crime, and what
appears to me to be the high-
est duty of a citizen. The only
course open to you the judge,
is, as I am going to say in my
statement, either to resign
your post or inflict on me the
severest penalty if you be-
lieve that the system and law
you are assisting to adminis-
ter are good for the people. I
do not expect that kind of
conversion. But by the time I
have finished with my state-
ment you will perhaps have a
what is raging within my
breast to run this modest risk
which a sane men can run.”
Judge Broomfield, before
he gave his verdict conducted
himself in an un British man-
ner, “Mr Gandhi, you have
made my task easy in one
way by pleading guilty to the
charge. Nevertheless, what
remains, namely, the deter-
mination of a just sentence,
is perhaps as difficult a prop-
osition as a judge in this
country could have to face.
The law is no respecter of
persons. Nevertheless it will
be impossible to ignore the
fact that you are in a different
category from any person. I
have ever tried or am likely to
have to try
. It would be impos-
sible to ignore the fact that in
the eyes of millions of your
countrymen, you are a great
patriot and a great leader.
Even those who differ from
you in politics look upon you
as a man of high ideals and of
noble and of even saintly
life….. it is my duty to judge
you as a man subject to
law…..”
Judge Broomfield recalled
the 6 year sentence passed
against Bal Gangadhar Tilak.
He gave Gandhiji also a six
year sentence. He concluded
in these large hearted words,
“And I should like to say in do-
ing so that if the course of
events in India should make
it possible for the Govern-
ment to reduce the period and
release you, no one will be bet-
ter pleased than I.”
Gandhiji replied Broom-
field courtesy “……so far as
the whole proceedings are
concerned, I must say I could
not have expected greater
courtesy
.”
THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY
THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL

Judge Broomfield gave
Gandhiji also a six year
sentence. He concluded
in these large hearted
words, “And I should
like to say in doing so
that if the course of

the period and release
you, no one will be better
pleased than I.”

This is the first time that

the overall trade deficit
in the year so far now
stands at 78.81 billion,
almost 207% higher
than a year ago, but still
11.4% below 2019 levels.

HOPEFULLY NAMES RECOMMENDED
BY COLLEGIUM BE CLEARED ‘VERY SOON’: CJI
New Delhi: Chief Jus-
tice of India NV Rama-
na on Saturday pressed
for early clearance of
the names recommend-
ed by the collegium for
appointment as judges
in the higher judiciary
,
saying he seeking the
government’s coopera-
tion and support to fa-
cilitate equal access to
justice and to strength-
en democracy
.
Justice Ramana,
who has been actively
recommending names
for appointment of
judges in the higher ju-
diciary after assuming
charge as the CJI on
April 24, said the colle-
gium has recommend-
ed 106 names for high
court judges since May
and clearing them
would take care of pen-
dency of cases to some
extent.
Speaking at an event
in New Delhi, the CJI
also noted that the Cov-
id-19 pandemic has “ex-
posed some deep-root-
ed problems” in the ju-
diciary and under-
scored the need to en-
sure equal access to
justice, especially to
vulnerable sections.
“My companion judges
and I have attempted to
enable litigants to get
faster justice. I want to
state that, since May
onwards, my team so
far has recommended
the appointment of 106
Judges and nine new
Chief Justices to vari-
ous High Courts. The
government has
cleared seven names
out of the 106 judges
and one out of the nine
for chief justices, so far.
I expect that the gov-
ernment will clear the
rest of the names very
soon. These appoint-
ments will take care of
pendency to some ex-
tent. I seek the coopera-
tion and support of the
Government to enable
access to justice and to
strengthen democra-
cy
,” he said.
The Chief Justice of
India, who is also the
Patron-in-chief of the
National Legal Servic-
es Authority, was

New Delhi: Congress
has lost one RS seat
from TN due to its own
internal squabble. Then
the question is what
will it do in Bihar and
Jharkhand? In
Jharkhand, two seats
are falling vacant next
year and both the seats
belong to the BJP. Un-
ion ministers Mukhtar
Abbas Naqvi and Ma-
hesh Poddar will retire
next year. Out of this,
one seat will go to the
ruling coalition i.e.
JMM-Congress.
Congress can claim
this seat because last
year i.e. in 2020 elec-
tions, the seat with coa-
lition quota went to
JMM’s account and
party’s founder Shibu
Soren was sent to the
Upper House. So, this
time it is the turn of
Congress with 18 MLAs,
however, JMM is not go-
ing to give up this seat
easily. Dhiraj Sahu of
Congress is about to re-
tire in the next biennial
election i.e. 2024, and
JMM will try to grab the
seat, by promising to
give Sahu’s seat back to
Congress in 2024, how-
ever, if Congress puts
pressure, it can get one
seat next year.
On the other hand,
elections for five RS
seats will be held in Bi-
har next year. Out of
this, one seat belongs to
Sharad Yadav, which is
vacant for the last sev-
eral years, but due to the
ongoingcourtdisputein
the Delhi HC, poll was
not held on it. JDU-BJP
have 126 and RJD-Con-
gress have 110 MLAs in
Bihar Assembly
. If you
add five MLAs of Asa-
duddin Owaisi to this,
then the number be-
comes 115. As per As-
sembly maths, 41 votes
are needed to win seat.
In this sense, JDU alli-
ance will get three seats
and Congress-RJD will
secure two seats. If RJD-
Cong fields 3rd candi-
date, then there can be
heavy horse-trading.
Cong has 19 MLAs in
the state and can claim
one seat. However, there
is also the difficulty that
RJD can promise to give
one seat to Cong in the
next biennial election, ie
2024, when polls for 6
seatsaretobeheld.RJD’s
Misa Bharti is retiring
next year and is likely to
be given tickets again.
Congress can pressurize
for another seat. JD(U)
leader and Union min
RCPSinghandBJP’sGN
Singh  SC Dubey are
retiring and next time
alsoJDUwillgetoneand
BJP will get two seats.
What will Cong do in
Bihar  Jharkhand?
Cong can get
one seat each
both in Bihar
and Jharkhand
in the biennial
elections of the
RS to be held
next year

Will Kanhaiya save Congress?
Sharat K Verma
New Delhi: Former
Congress president Ra-
hul Gandhi, did well by
not attending the press
conference along with
Kanhaiya Kumar, for-
mer CPI leader and for-
mer JNU Students’ Un-
ion president. How
strange it would have
seemed if Kanhaiya Ku-
mar had claimed in
front of him that he was
joining the party to save
the Congress! It is so be-
cause Kanhaiya said
this in many articulate
ways in the press con-
ference that he would
save the Congress and
interesting enough he
said this in presence of
Congress General Sec-
retary KC Venugopal.
Kanhaiya was asked
why he is joining Con-
gress, to which he said,
“I am joining Congress
because I feel that one
ideology is destroying
the values, culture, his-
tory and future of this
country. …Crores of
youth are feeling that
the country will not be
saved if Congress is not
saved.”
When asked for the
second time, Kanhaiya
said, “Congress party
is like a big ship, if it is
saved then I think it is
due to the aspirations
of many people, the
ideological openness of
Gandhi, the courage of
Bhagat Singh and the
similarity of Bhimrao
Ambedkar. The idea
will also be saved, so I
am joining Cong.”
Usually a leader on
joining Congress or
joining any party says
that he is influenced by
the ideology of that
party or is influenced
by leadership of that
party, hence is joining
the said party
. But Kan-
haiya did not say this
even once. He has re-
peatedly indicated that
Cong is dying out and it
is necessary to save it,
so he is joining it.
Congress did not
like Kanhaiya’s
mannerisms, a
leader had said
that Kanhaiya
should forget his
revolutionary
take and ideas

Covishield, which has
been developed by Brit-
ish-Swedish pharma-
ceutical company Astra-
Zeneca, is manufac-
tured in India by Pune-
based SII. He was re-
sponding to a question
on whether any Covid
vaccine should be rec-
ognised and considered
or ones that have been
validated by the WHO
or any other group. —PTI
On vaccines,
that’s a very
technical question
you have asked me. I got
Covishield from India, I’ve
got the two doses. I don’t
know how many countries
would say that Covishield
is acceptable or not.

Comedy of errors:

Amarinder Singh on
Saturday slammed Con-
gress over the prepos-

Pointing to the con-
flicting numbers shared

ceived by the party’s

pressing lack of confi-
dence against him, Cap-

ter Surjewala claimed
that 78 of the 79 Punjab

writtentothepartylead-
ership seeking Captain
Amarinder’s ouster.

them against me.

POLITICS OF
STATUES
There was a time
when politics was
consideredtobethewor-
ship of a living man but
thinkingandthestyleof
politics has changed
with the course of time.
Now the ideals of politi-
cians have become stat-
ues. This past week, a
controversy erupted af-
ter the removal of the
word ‘Gurjar’ from the
stone plaque in front of
the statue of Gurjar em-
peror Mihir Bhoj in ‘Mi-
hir Bhoj Balika Degree
College’ of Greater Noi-
da. The BJP has been
considering the Gurjar
community as its tradi-
tional vote bank in UP,
even in the recent past
(before this controver-
sy), the internal survey
of the BJP was indicat-
ingthat69percentof the
Gurjarvoters areinsup-
port of the BJP
.
The community had
hoped that CM of the
state would announce
some big assistance for
this college during his
visit to the college. Yogi
came, but no announce-
ment was made.
What do the living
communities want to
provebyintroducinglife
consecrating their lives
in stone idols? The po-
liticalpartiesengagedin
the efforts to glorify the
representation of the
caste-communityshould
take a lesson from Raja
Mahendra Pratap.
CAPTAIN’S
TECHNICAL
ALLIANCE
Former Punjab CM
Capt Amarinder
Singh may cause lots of
trouble for Congress by
forming his new politi-
cal party though efforts
are still on to persuade
him by the Congress. So-
nia Gandhi personally
likes the Captain so she
gave him a lot of time.
Initially, a committee
headed by Mallikarjun
Kharge was formed,
then another committee
was formed and after
that, the report of state
in-charge Harish Rawat
came. Sensing the grav-
ity of the matter, Singh
offered his resignation
to party’s working presi-
dent Sonia Gandhi. But
Sonia, as per the estab-
lished traditions, want-
ed the outgoing CM to
propose the name of the
new CM. In ‘PK’ report,
there was a stress on
making a Dalit CM so
Sonia Gandhi consid-
ered the name of a sen-
ior Dalit leader from
Punjab, Shamsher Sin-
gh Dullo. Apart from the
state president, Dullo
has been number two in
Beant Singh’s cabinet.
However, Rahul wanted
one of the MLAs to be-
cometheChief Minister
and that too a Dalit.
Therefore, Charanjit
SinghChannigottheop-
portunity
.
The Gandhi family
was already apprehen-
sive about Sidhu and
wanted him to be kept in
a limit. Sources said that
Captain’s main annoy-
ance was about Sidhu. It
is also said that Captain
in a meeting with Na-
tional Security Advisor
Ajit Doval has handed
over a dossier which has
seriousrevelationsabout
Sidhu’s love for Pakistan
andhisrelationshipwith
Pak PM, Imran Khan. At
the same time, Sidhu’s
men are openly raising
questions about the rela-
tionship between Cap-
tain and Pakistani jour-
nalist Arusha Alam.
Amarinder Singh may
form a regional political
party
. Since he has very
good ties with the BJP
and his close confidant
Manish Tewari is well
connected with the Aam
Aadmi Party
, it is being
speculatedthatCaptain’s
proposed party may not
contest strongly on all
the 117 seats in Punjab,
particularly on the seats
whereBJPorAAPcandi-
datesareinastrongposi-
tion. He may support
both the parties on such
seats.
MALINI IN RAJYA
SABHA?
The fame of Pad-
mashree awardee
folk singer Malini
Awasthi, the wife of UP
CM’s most trusted offic-
er and principal secre-
tary Avnish Awasthi, is
now crossing the bound-
aries of UP. Malini
claims that in 2005, she
wasbarredfromsinging
a Bhajan on state-run
Doordarshan only be-
cause the Bhajan con-
tained that Lord Rama
was born in Ayodhya.
So, now Yogi wants to
send this folk singer to
the upper house from
nominated category
. For
this, he has also request-
ed the PM. On the other
hand, some senior lead-
ers of Sangh and BJP
believe that in the up-
coming assembly elec-
tions, BJP should field
Malini from Sahibabad
assembly constituency
.
TAKING EVERYONE
ALONG!
PM Modi believes in
maintaining a rea-
sonable distance from
the media and he has
also instructed his min-
isters to do so. However,
Union Minister for Road
Transport and High-
ways Nitin Gadkari
brokealltherecordsthis
time and reached Kash-
mir with a team of some
250journaliststoinspect

penses of the team was
allegedly borne by the
company which is in-
volved in the construc-
tion work of the Zojila
Tunnel.Itissaidthatthe

than Rs. 2 crore on the

LET’S PLAY WITH
HISTORY
Anewly published
book of historian
Raghavendra Tanwar
titled ‘The Story of In-
dia’s Partition’ tells
what the ‘Badshah’ of
Delhi and his followers
want to hear. There is a
lot of effort in this book
to show the real face of
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
and Jawahar Lal Nehru.
Giving voice to the in-
tentions of the present
government, this book
raises the question why
there are talks only
aboutthefreedommove-
ment but not about par-
tition, in which lakhs of
innocent people lost
their lives. The content
of the book also asks as
to whether Nehru was
greedy for power and
henceheagreedtoparti-
tion the country? This
right-wing tendency to
rewrite history and to
giveanewperspectiveto
historicfactscanbecrit-
icized and it can also be
called an exercise to de-
fame Nehru.
SHIVPAL’S SAFFRON
LOVE
In UP assembly polls
in 2017, Shivpal had
spoiled the game of his
nephew Akhilesh on
many seats and BJP had
won on these seats. This
time, Akhilesh is deter-
mined that he not let his
uncle ruin things so he
has offered 7 seats to
Shivpal from SP quota.
But Shivpal is not agree-
ing to less than 30 seats.
The Yogi government is
also very kind to Shiv-
pal. The ministerial
bungalow of a large size
allottedtoShivpalisstill
occupied by him. Even
all of his works are done
in the Yogi government,
what else does Shivpal
need?
...AND FINALLY
BJP MP from Bagh-
pat Dr Satyapal Sin-
gh’s daughter Charu
Pragya has given a con-
troversial remark on

der against agricultural

in-charge of BJP Yuva
Morcha’s legal commit-
tee, her younger sister
Richa Pragya’s husband
Dr. Vipin Toda is the SSP

Gupta died after being
beaten up by the police
which has become a

Meanwhile, Baghel was made a senior observer for next year’s Uttar Pradesh assembly elec- tions by the Congress on Saturday amid turmoil in the party over the top job in his state. ...SAYS CM BAGHEL AMID LEADERSHIP CHANGE BUZZ Interestingly, Baghel gets senior observer role for UP polls amid tumult Raipur: Amid political jostling in the ruling Congress in Chhattisgarh, six party MLAs left the state capital for Delhi on Friday. Among MLAs seen at the Chhattis- garh airport were Shishupal Sori, Santram Netam, Kismat Lal, Ram Kumar Yadav, Kawasi Lakhma and KK Dhruv. Santram Netam said that he was going to Delhi for “personal reason” and the presence of other MLAs at the airport was merely a coincidence. He added that any meeting with senior party leaders will be a part of the routine they follow when they visit the national capital. Punjab is land of punj (five) aab (water). It is made up of five rivers. Similarly, Chhattisgarh has derived its name from ‘chhattis’ (thirty six) ‘garh’ (fort). No other states have numbers in their names. There is no other similarity between the two states. —Bhupesh Baghel, Chhattisgarh CM SIX CHHATTISGARH CONG MLAs LEAVE FOR DELHI Shah to youth: Participate in development of nation NewDelhi:UnionHome Minister Amit Shah on Saturday appealed the youthtoensuretheirpar- ticipation in the develop- ment of the country un- der ‘ Azadi Ka Amrit Ma- hotsav’, being organised across the nation to cele- brate the 75th years of India’s Independence.

Stoutly defending the agri laws during an in- terview, Modi said it is one thing if a political party makes a promise and is unable to deliver on it but what is a “par- ticularly undesirable” and “detestable” trait is some of these parties made promises on the lines of the reforms en- actedbyhisgovernment and have now done a U- turn and spread “the most malicious kind of misinformation on the promises they them- selves had made”.

The 98 and 99 percent cut- offs of pre-Covid years are his- tory as DU colleges, at least seven of them, have a cutoff of 100 percent. For another 94 pro- grammes in various colleges is fixed at 99 percent. This has made getting admis- sions even in programmes like journalism beyond a large num- ber of students. Some of the DU colleges like SRCC, Hindu Col- lege, Hansraj and LSR always had high cutoffs but they have been raised further because of liberal marking by the CBSE and some state boards. Over 9,200 students with 100 percent marks sought admis- sions in DU colleges making it obvious that hundreds of others with 99 percent will be wonder- ing if the exam system has been a little unfair to them as they will be pushed by the glut of 100 percent. Even those with 100 percent marks may not be lucky to get a college of their choice. C ustralia will be ready for takeoff very soon, said Prime Minister Scott Morrison to- day as he announced the ban on international travel will be lifted some time next month. Returning Australian citi- zens and permanent resi- dents will be able to quaran- tine at home for seven days if fully vaccinated with a TGA- approved vaccine. The recognised vaccines include those already ap- proved for use in Australia by Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moder- na and Johnson and John- son/Janssen, as well as Sino- vac and Covishield (Cov- ishield is AstraZeneca’s vac- cine made in India). Unvaccinatedreturneeswill still need to enter managed ho- tel quarantine for 14 days until AustraliamovesbeyondPhase C of the National Plan. Those who can’t be vacci- nated, including young chil- dren and those with a medi- cal exemption, will be count- ed as vaccinated for travel. Arrival caps will also be abolished for fully vaccinat- ed returnees. Today’s announcement is one big step towards allowing vaccinated Australians to re- turn home soon, as we move to a future that somewhat resem- bles pre-COVID life. Home quarantinetrialsinSouthAus- tralia and New South Wales will answer this question. Authorities will be testing returnees and the proportion of those who are COVID-pos- itive, as well as when they test positive,willinformdecision- making.

The list of such countries will likely change over time A BJP HAS NO EFFECTIVE OPPOSITION TO FACE! For me the past week has been one of despair and disgust. The Bhartiya Janata Party must be in a joyous mood. It has no worthwhile or affective Opposition to face. This is not a comforting development for our democracy am writing this on Mahatma Gandhi’s one hundredth and fifty second birth anniversa- ry . Had he been alive today, he would probably have commit- ted suicide seeing the present state of the Congress party. Three individuals have all but made the Congress non- functional. I doubt if any member of the so called High Command has read Gandhi’s “The Story of My Experi- ments with Truth.” For me the past week has been one of despair and dis- gust. The Bhartiya Janata Party must be in a joyous mood. It has no worthwhile or effective Opposition to face. This is not a comforting devel- opment for our democracy . To divert my mind from the prevailing political muck, I am re-reading DG Ten- dulkar’s volume two of his biography of the Mahatma. It was published in 1951. Gandhiji was arrested on 10th March 1922 at the Sabar- mati Ashram. The offence was his writ- ing three articles in “Young India” of which he was edi- tor. His trail began on Satur- day, March 18, before Mr Broomfield, ICS, the District and Sessions Judge, Ahmedabad. The charges were read out. Gandhiji said, “I plead guilty of all charges.” Judge: Mr Gandhi, do you wish to make a statement. Gandhi: I would like to make a statement. Judge: Could you give me in writing to put it on record.? Gandhi: I shall give it as soon as I finish reading it. Before reading his written statement he spoke ex-tempo- re. I quote para two : “I want- ed to avoid violence. Non-vio- lence is the first article of my faith. It is also the last article of my creed. I had either to submit to a system which I considered had done irrepa- rable harm to my country or incur the risk of the mad furry of my people bursting forth. I know that my people have sometimes gone mad. I am deeply sorry for it and I am, therefore, here to submit not to a light penalty, but to the highest penalty. I do not ask for mercy. I do not plead any extenuating act. I am here, therefore, to invite and cheerfully submit to the high- est penalty that can be inflict- ed upon me for what in law is a deliberate crime, and what appears to me to be the high- est duty of a citizen. The only course open to you the judge, is, as I am going to say in my statement, either to resign your post or inflict on me the severest penalty if you be- lieve that the system and law you are assisting to adminis- ter are good for the people. I do not expect that kind of conversion. But by the time I have finished with my state- ment you will perhaps have a what is raging within my breast to run this modest risk which a sane men can run.” Judge Broomfield, before he gave his verdict conducted himself in an un British man- ner, “Mr Gandhi, you have made my task easy in one way by pleading guilty to the charge. Nevertheless, what remains, namely, the deter- mination of a just sentence, is perhaps as difficult a prop- osition as a judge in this country could have to face. The law is no respecter of persons. Nevertheless it will be impossible to ignore the fact that you are in a different category from any person. I have ever tried or am likely to have to try . It would be impos- sible to ignore the fact that in the eyes of millions of your countrymen, you are a great patriot and a great leader. Even those who differ from you in politics look upon you as a man of high ideals and of noble and of even saintly life….. it is my duty to judge you as a man subject to law…..” Judge Broomfield recalled the 6 year sentence passed against Bal Gangadhar Tilak. He gave Gandhiji also a six year sentence. He concluded in these large hearted words, “And I should like to say in do- ing so that if the course of events in India should make it possible for the Govern- ment to reduce the period and release you, no one will be bet- ter pleased than I.” Gandhiji replied Broom- field courtesy “……so far as the whole proceedings are concerned, I must say I could not have expected greater courtesy .” THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL I Judge Broomfield gave Gandhiji also a six year sentence. He concluded in these large hearted words, “And I should like to say in doing so that if the course of events in India should make it possible for the Government to reduce the period and release you, no one will be better pleased than I.” K NATWAR SINGH The author is Former Minister of External Affairs of India

The trade deficit hit a record of nearly $23 bil- lion in September, and the overall trade deficit in the year so far now stands at 78.81 billion, almost 207% higher than a year ago, but still 11.4% below 2019 levels. “With the surge in im- ports, the merchandise trade deficit has bal- loonedtoanall-timehigh inSeptember2021,based on which we now expect the current account to display a double-digit deficit in the second quarter,” said Aditi Na- yar, chief economist at ICRA.

Justice Ramana, who has been actively recommending names for appointment of judges in the higher ju- diciary after assuming charge as the CJI on April 24, said the colle- gium has recommend- ed 106 names for high court judges since May and clearing them would take care of pen- dency of cases to some extent. Speaking at an event in New Delhi, the CJI also noted that the Cov- id-19 pandemic has “ex- posed some deep-root- ed problems” in the ju- diciary and under- scored the need to en- sure equal access to justice, especially to vulnerable sections. “My companion judges and I have attempted to enable litigants to get faster justice. I want to state that, since May onwards, my team so far has recommended the appointment of 106 Judges and nine new Chief Justices to vari- ous High Courts. The government has cleared seven names out of the 106 judges and one out of the nine for chief justices, so far. I expect that the gov- ernment will clear the rest of the names very soon. These appoint- ments will take care of pendency to some ex- tent. I seek the coopera- tion and support of the Government to enable access to justice and to strengthen democra- cy ,” he said. The Chief Justice of India, who is also the Patron-in-chief of the National Legal Servic- es Authority, was speaking at the launch of the six-week-long ‘The Pan India Legal Awareness and Out- reach Campaign’ by NALSA at Vigyan Bhavan that was inau- gurated by President Ram Nath Kovind on the occasion of Mahat- ma Gandhi’s birth an- niversary .

Modi, during his speech at 74th session of UN Gen Assembly, had said that India would eradicate tuberculosis by 2025. Anita Hada New Delhi: Congress has lost one RS seat from TN due to its own internal squabble. Then the question is what will it do in Bihar and Jharkhand? In Jharkhand, two seats are falling vacant next year and both the seats belong to the BJP. Un- ion ministers Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Ma- hesh Poddar will retire next year. Out of this, one seat will go to the ruling coalition i.e. JMM-Congress. Congress can claim this seat because last year i.e. in 2020 elec- tions, the seat with coa- lition quota went to JMM’s account and party’s founder Shibu Soren was sent to the Upper House. So, this time it is the turn of Congress with 18 MLAs, however, JMM is not go- ing to give up this seat easily. Dhiraj Sahu of Congress is about to re- tire in the next biennial election i.e. 2024, and JMM will try to grab the seat, by promising to give Sahu’s seat back to Congress in 2024, how- ever, if Congress puts pressure, it can get one seat next year. On the other hand, elections for five RS seats will be held in Bi- har next year. Out of this, one seat belongs to Sharad Yadav, which is vacant for the last sev- eral years, but due to the ongoingcourtdisputein the Delhi HC, poll was not held on it. JDU-BJP have 126 and RJD-Con- gress have 110 MLAs in Bihar Assembly . If you add five MLAs of Asa- duddin Owaisi to this, then the number be- comes 115. As per As- sembly maths, 41 votes are needed to win seat. In this sense, JDU alli- ance will get three seats and Congress-RJD will secure two seats. If RJD- Cong fields 3rd candi- date, then there can be heavy horse-trading. Cong has 19 MLAs in the state and can claim one seat. However, there is also the difficulty that RJD can promise to give one seat to Cong in the next biennial election, ie 2024, when polls for 6 seatsaretobeheld.RJD’s Misa Bharti is retiring next year and is likely to be given tickets again. Congress can pressurize for another seat. JD(U) leader and Union min RCPSinghandBJP’sGN Singh SC Dubey are retiring and next time alsoJDUwillgetoneand BJP will get two seats. What will Cong do in Bihar Jharkhand? Cong can get one seat each both in Bihar and Jharkhand in the biennial elections of the RS to be held next year MIN’S HAND AT THE LOOM!

Sharat K Verma New Delhi: Former Congress president Ra- hul Gandhi, did well by not attending the press conference along with Kanhaiya Kumar, for- mer CPI leader and for- mer JNU Students’ Un- ion president. How strange it would have seemed if Kanhaiya Ku- mar had claimed in front of him that he was joining the party to save the Congress! It is so be- cause Kanhaiya said this in many articulate ways in the press con- ference that he would save the Congress and interesting enough he said this in presence of Congress General Sec- retary KC Venugopal. Kanhaiya was asked why he is joining Con- gress, to which he said, “I am joining Congress because I feel that one ideology is destroying the values, culture, his- tory and future of this country. …Crores of youth are feeling that the country will not be saved if Congress is not saved.” When asked for the second time, Kanhaiya said, “Congress party is like a big ship, if it is saved then I think it is due to the aspirations of many people, the ideological openness of Gandhi, the courage of Bhagat Singh and the similarity of Bhimrao Ambedkar. The idea will also be saved, so I am joining Cong.” Usually a leader on joining Congress or joining any party says that he is influenced by the ideology of that party or is influenced by leadership of that party, hence is joining the said party . But Kan- haiya did not say this even once. He has re- peatedly indicated that Cong is dying out and it is necessary to save it, so he is joining it. Congress did not like Kanhaiya’s mannerisms, a leader had said that Kanhaiya should forget his revolutionary take and ideas Kanhaiya Kumar I got India’s Covishield doses: Abdulla Shahid United Nations: Presi- dent of the 76th session of the UN General As- sembly Abdulla Shahid has said he had received 2 doses of Covishield vaccine manufactured inIndia,ashavea“large portion” of other coun- tries across world. Covishield, which has been developed by Brit- ish-Swedish pharma- ceutical company Astra- Zeneca, is manufac- tured in India by Pune- based SII. He was re- sponding to a question on whether any Covid vaccine should be rec- ognised and considered or ones that have been validated by the WHO or any other group. —PTI On vaccines, that’s a very technical question you have asked me. I got Covishield from India, I’ve got the two doses. I don’t know how many countries would say that Covishield is acceptable or not. —Abdulla Shahid, President of the UN General Assembly Comedy of errors: Captain on PPC crisis Chandigarh: Former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday slammed Con- gress over the prepos- terous lies being floated by various party lead- ers in a clear bid to cov- er up their mishandling of the crisis in the state. Pointing to the con- flicting numbers shared by Harish Rawat and Randeep Surjewala on the purported letter re- ceived by the party’s central leadership ex- pressing lack of confi- dence against him, Cap- tain Amarinder termed it a “comedy of errors”. His remarks came af- ter Surjewala claimed that 78 of the 79 Punjab Congress MLAs had writtentothepartylead- ership seeking Captain Amarinder’s ouster. —ANI It seems the entire party has become imbued with Navjot Singh Sidhu’s sense of comic theatrics. Now next they will claim that 117 MLAs wrote to them against me. — Captain Amarinder Singh, Former Punjab CM

JPC/010/2019-21 POLITICS OF STATUES There was a time when politics was consideredtobethewor- ship of a living man but thinkingandthestyleof politics has changed with the course of time. Now the ideals of politi- cians have become stat- ues. This past week, a controversy erupted af- ter the removal of the word ‘Gurjar’ from the stone plaque in front of the statue of Gurjar em- peror Mihir Bhoj in ‘Mi- hir Bhoj Balika Degree College’ of Greater Noi- da. The BJP has been considering the Gurjar community as its tradi- tional vote bank in UP, even in the recent past (before this controver- sy), the internal survey of the BJP was indicat- ingthat69percentof the Gurjarvoters areinsup- port of the BJP . The community had hoped that CM of the state would announce some big assistance for this college during his visit to the college. Yogi came, but no announce- ment was made. What do the living communities want to provebyintroducinglife consecrating their lives in stone idols? The po- liticalpartiesengagedin the efforts to glorify the representation of the caste-communityshould take a lesson from Raja Mahendra Pratap. CAPTAIN’S TECHNICAL ALLIANCE Former Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh may cause lots of trouble for Congress by forming his new politi- cal party though efforts are still on to persuade him by the Congress. So- nia Gandhi personally likes the Captain so she gave him a lot of time. Initially, a committee headed by Mallikarjun Kharge was formed, then another committee was formed and after that, the report of state in-charge Harish Rawat came. Sensing the grav- ity of the matter, Singh offered his resignation to party’s working presi- dent Sonia Gandhi. But Sonia, as per the estab- lished traditions, want- ed the outgoing CM to propose the name of the new CM. In ‘PK’ report, there was a stress on making a Dalit CM so Sonia Gandhi consid- ered the name of a sen- ior Dalit leader from Punjab, Shamsher Sin- gh Dullo. Apart from the state president, Dullo has been number two in Beant Singh’s cabinet. However, Rahul wanted one of the MLAs to be- cometheChief Minister and that too a Dalit. Therefore, Charanjit SinghChannigottheop- portunity . The Gandhi family was already apprehen- sive about Sidhu and wanted him to be kept in a limit. Sources said that Captain’s main annoy- ance was about Sidhu. It is also said that Captain in a meeting with Na- tional Security Advisor Ajit Doval has handed over a dossier which has seriousrevelationsabout Sidhu’s love for Pakistan andhisrelationshipwith Pak PM, Imran Khan. At the same time, Sidhu’s men are openly raising questions about the rela- tionship between Cap- tain and Pakistani jour- nalist Arusha Alam. Amarinder Singh may form a regional political party . Since he has very good ties with the BJP and his close confidant Manish Tewari is well connected with the Aam Aadmi Party , it is being speculatedthatCaptain’s proposed party may not contest strongly on all the 117 seats in Punjab, particularly on the seats whereBJPorAAPcandi- datesareinastrongposi- tion. He may support both the parties on such seats. MALINI IN RAJYA SABHA? The fame of Pad- mashree awardee folk singer Malini Awasthi, the wife of UP CM’s most trusted offic- er and principal secre- tary Avnish Awasthi, is now crossing the bound- aries of UP. Malini claims that in 2005, she wasbarredfromsinging a Bhajan on state-run Doordarshan only be- cause the Bhajan con- tained that Lord Rama was born in Ayodhya. So, now Yogi wants to send this folk singer to the upper house from nominated category . For this, he has also request- ed the PM. On the other hand, some senior lead- ers of Sangh and BJP believe that in the up- coming assembly elec- tions, BJP should field Malini from Sahibabad assembly constituency . TAKING EVERYONE ALONG! PM Modi believes in maintaining a rea- sonable distance from the media and he has also instructed his min- isters to do so. However, Union Minister for Road Transport and High- ways Nitin Gadkari brokealltherecordsthis time and reached Kash- mir with a team of some 250journaliststoinspect Zojila Tunnel. The ex- penses of the team was allegedly borne by the company which is in- volved in the construc- tion work of the Zojila Tunnel.Itissaidthatthe company spent more than Rs. 2 crore on the hospitality of the jour- nalists yet the journal- ists were not happy with the arrangements. A press conference ad- dressed by the MD of NationalHighwayInfra- structure Development Corporation, which last- ed for an hour. Later, there was an arrange- ment for cocktails and food in another hotel. But by then, the journal- ists were so tired that half of themreturnedto their hotel rooms. When the journalists reached the Zojila Tunnel the next day, there was a food arrangement for 200 persons but the crowd was of 400 people sotheyfacedahardtime in getting the food. This three-day hospitality journey was quite tiring for the journos. LET’S PLAY WITH HISTORY Anewly published book of historian Raghavendra Tanwar titled ‘The Story of In- dia’s Partition’ tells what the ‘Badshah’ of Delhi and his followers want to hear. There is a lot of effort in this book to show the real face of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Jawahar Lal Nehru. Giving voice to the in- tentions of the present government, this book raises the question why there are talks only aboutthefreedommove- ment but not about par- tition, in which lakhs of innocent people lost their lives. The content of the book also asks as to whether Nehru was greedy for power and henceheagreedtoparti- tion the country? This right-wing tendency to rewrite history and to giveanewperspectiveto historicfactscanbecrit- icized and it can also be called an exercise to de- fame Nehru. SHIVPAL’S SAFFRON LOVE In UP assembly polls in 2017, Shivpal had spoiled the game of his nephew Akhilesh on many seats and BJP had won on these seats. This time, Akhilesh is deter- mined that he not let his uncle ruin things so he has offered 7 seats to Shivpal from SP quota. But Shivpal is not agree- ing to less than 30 seats. The Yogi government is also very kind to Shiv- pal. The ministerial bungalow of a large size allottedtoShivpalisstill occupied by him. Even all of his works are done in the Yogi government, what else does Shivpal need? ...AND FINALLY BJP MP from Bagh- pat Dr Satyapal Sin- gh’s daughter Charu Pragya has given a con- troversial remark on farmers who are staging a sit-in on the Delhi bor- der against agricultural laws.
