has come to the de-
fence of the Rashtriya
Swayamsevak Sangh
(the BJP’s ideological

“completely wrong”
in comparing the two,

mouthpiece Saamna,
the Sena pointed out
that the RSS, for exam-

of Hindutva is accepted
here... neither the Shiv
Sena nor the RSS sup-
port that”.

lead in the five-match series. England, set 368 to win, were dismissed for 210 after tea on
the last day as India triumphed in a match taking place just over fifty years on from their
first Test - and series - win in England at the Oval in 1971. England were relatively well-
placed at 141-2 after lunch before left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja and fast bowler Jasprit
Bumrah both struck twice in a spectacular collapse that saw the hosts lose four wickets
for six runs in 36 balls. Recalled paceman Umesh Yadav, who took 3-60, cleaned up the tail
and ended the match when James Anderson was caught behind.

First India Bureau
Jaipur: Former cabi-
net minister Dr Roh-
itash Sharma, who
was recently suspend-
ed from the BJP for six
years, on Mon-
day said the reason for
not getting panchayat
election results in fa-
vour of BJP is the lead-
ership. In the state, six
BJP leaders are roam-
ing around pretending
to be the candidates of
Chief Minister. Out of
which now the party
has lost in the fields of
three leaders.
Sharma said the
bills are passed with-
out debate. This is not
in the interest of de-
mocracy
. PM Modi has
done a great job of re-
moving Article 370 and
barricading the China
border. But communi-
cation with leaders is
equally important.
There is a need to re-
duce inflation and pro-
vide more employment
opportunities in the
country
.

Jaipur: Congress domi-

pradhans for 78 pan-

Congress and BJP have
got double the number
of pradhans than the
mandate they got. Con-
gress has made 49 and
BJP has made 25 pan-
chayatsamitipradhans.
Congress had a clear
majority in 26 panchay-
at samitis and the BJP
in 14 panchayat samitis
but both made almost
double the pradhans
through manipulations
with the help of inde-
pendents.
Two heads of Hanu-
man Beniwal’s party
RLP -- Anita from Jodh-
pur’s Bawdi and Guddi
from Chamu Panchayat
Samiti -- have won.
Mukesh from Bharat-
pur and Maun Kanwar
from Jodhpur’s Baap
are independent lead-
ers. BJP state president
Satish Poonia saved
grace by becoming the
head despite not having
a majority in the two
panchayat samitis -
Amer and Jalsu.
‘DEMOCRACY DISMANTLED
WITH MONEY POWER IN JPR’
‘BJP’S VICTORY IN PANCHAYAT
POLLS IS TRAILER FOR 2023’
ttacking BJP and RSS after
Congress rebel Rama Devi
Chopra became Zila Pramukh
as BJP candidate, PCC chief
Govind Singh Dotasra said that BJP
used money power to win the election.
“Democracy was dismantled, robbed
and a game of bribery has been
played in the election of Zila Pramukh
in Jaipur. It is our people who have
betrayed the party. We are taking the
report and those stabbed in the back
will not be spared,” Dotasra said at a
press conference. “They topple
elected govts and this is
what they tried to do in
Raj last year but could
not succeed. It is not the
BJP which has won, it is
the backstabbing by our
people; which has
won,” he said.
JP state president Satish
Poonia has given a befitting
reply to his opponents after
the victory of BJP candidate
Rama Devi in Jaipur district council.
He said that the victory of BJP in
Panchayat and district council polls
is a trailer for 2023. The results are
a direct reply to those who see their
victory in BJP’s defeat. I dedicate
this victory to every worker of BJP
and PM Narendra Modi. Poonia said
the PCC chief had claimed that BJP
will not win and Congress will win
all the six seats. On
Dotasra’s statement
about dismantling
democracy, he said,
“The Congress
party is under threat
because there is no
internal democracy.”

fear---for every citizen is the most
important responsibility of the
police force”. At IIM Kolkata’s
convocation he reiterated his
stand on these freedoms.
But to liken Infosys with the
“tukde-tukde” gang is a danger-
ous first. Hope it is the last.
T
armers have
shown their
might to the gov-
ernments at the
Centre and in Ut-
tar Pradesh. Whatever the
two governments may have
to say about the three disput-
ed farm laws being in the in-
terest of agriculturists, they
are not biting the bait. The
mega kisan mahapanchayat
in Muzaffarnagar on Sunday
was not just proof of that but
it was also a warning that if
the issue is not resolved be-
fore the UP and Uttarakhand
elections, the governments
will have to pay electorally.
Rakesh Tikait couldn’t have
put it more bluntly when he
warned that his “Mission UP,
Uttarakhand” will be extend-
ed to include the Central gov-
ernment too. The Bharatiya
Kisan Union president gave a
rallying call to change the
system to save the country.
More specifically, though, he
described the rally as a show
of strength against the BJP
government in UP where
farmers are facing “hard-
ships”. “Electricity rates are
the highest, while sugarcane
rates have not gone up since
2016. The Centre has in-
creased cane FRP by Rs 5, a
mere five paise hike per kg,”
Tikait is leart to have said.
Tikait has been resolute in
his stand on the repeal of the
three farm laws and has stat-
ed that he will not settle for
anything less. When the gov-
ernment tried to malign him
by calling the farmers’ agita-
tion as politically sponsored
he broke down and vowed to
carry on the protest come
what may. That one incident
and also the lathi-charge on
protesters by the UP police in
the middle of the night in-
fused fresh energy into the
agitation.

Kamath loved his Olivetti
typewriter. He never
embraced the word
processor, or computer - to
write his articles, or books -
nor the e-mail. His was a
long, consistently prolific
innings of 70 years -
without a lean trot, from
which no batsman is
exempt. He sent in his pieces
to “Free Press Journal” -
where he made his ‘debut’ in
journalism - among others,
till his indisposition,
subsequent hospitalisation,
owing to geriatric problems,
and final adieu
t is rightly said that self-made
individuals who know their
path guide themselves —
and, they cannot lose their
way, or goal. This is primar-
ily because the path they love
to tread presents itself below
their feet. The picturesque
boulevard they choose may
just as well twist, or turn,
and impediments would
emerge, all right, but they
continue onwards and up-
wards on their journey
.
Yet, as my ‘guru,’ M V
Kamath, the doyen of Indian
journalism — whose 100th
birth anniversary falls today
— would always tell the path
one chooses and pursues with
passion and persistence
makes the ‘combatant’ in us
equipped with the instinctive
capacity to complete the voy-
age, howsoever difficult it
may appear to be. The higher
oneclimbs,thebettertheview
from one’s summit in one’s
own ‘mindful’ Mount Everest.
I was in awe of Kamath’s
immense erudition and
learning. I followed his writ-
ings as a budding writer —
with diligence. I got to know
him personally much later,
not only as a seasoned writer,
journalist, editor, author, and
a much-sought-after speaker,
but as a man from my own
backyard — or, hometown. I
met him more than a handful
of times and spoke to him at
length — each time convers-
ing in Kannada, the language
and the cultural backdrop
that connected us. I’d think
of myself as Ekalavya and I’d
often wheedle him as my own
Dronacharya. And, he’d quip,
each time, pronto, “But, Eka-
lavya, without the ‘iniqui-
tous’ portent, because, don’t
you worry, I will never ever
ask for your thumb.”
Such images keep falling
like raindrops on my head, or
rather bald pate — but, what
has left a lasting impression
on my mind and memory is
his serene, gentle, divine
face, the mesmeric twinkle in
his eyes and his perennial
encouraging words for the
writer in me. What made my
day was he would quickly re-
call something I wrote and
tell me he liked it. He was so
unassuming that I was at
ease to converse with him
without feeling edgy. This
was his greatness. This was
something that helped me to
get a good grasp of what each
of us should aspire for —
learning the fundamental
lessons in a voyage called
life, not simply success with
a career option, but under-
standing our higher calling
to work and expanding on
our potential, howsoever
small, big, significant, or in-
significant.
Most importantly, I loved
to hear his riveting anecdotes
from his vast repository, his
remarkable media experi-
ence — glimpses from the
times past. He’d recall events
like a computer accessing
files from the hard disk — in
a flash — be it tales from his
‘beat’ as a reporter, his post-
ings in Bonn, Washington, or
elsewhere, including some
amusing ‘real-time’ yarn, or
strands, traced and pulled
from Patagonia, in a jiffy, or
compelling details of Pandit
Jawaharlal Nehru’s vitriolic
temper to utter calm in an
instant, or the once friendly
and later standoffish Indira
Gandhi. His insuperable rep-
ertoire and the power of be-
ing a lively raconteur would
construct fragments into
their full identity and mean-
ing — something that led one
to a deeper level of knowl-
edge, long before the Internet
became a way of life.
Kamath loved his Olivetti
typewriter. He never em-
braced the word processor, or
computer - to write his arti-
cles, or books - nor the e-mail.
His was a long, consistently
prolific innings of 70 years -
without a lean trot, from
which no batsman is exempt.
He sent in his pieces to “Free
Press Journal” - where he
madehis‘debut’injournalism
-amongothers,tillhisindispo-
sition,subsequenthospitalisa-
tion, owing to geriatric prob-
lems, and final adieu.
For a science graduate,
who toyed with the half-
hearted idea of being a
chemist, Kamath had a way
for authenticity, or valida-
tion of his thought process
— he thought of it as the
light of consciousness that
made its way into the shad-
ows, or danced with them.
Something that one could ac-
cept as being a part of us and
also others. Yes, not every-
one acquiesced to his ‘right-
ist’ political leanings. This
was palpable — but, what
made him exceptional was
his enormous body of work,
the numerous times he au-
thored and edited. This in-
cludes “The Sunday Times”
and “The Illustrated Weekly
of India.”
To call Kamath the inex-
haustible, also quintessen-
tial, wordsmith would be
stating the obvious — pri-
marily because he cuddled
not just the full spectrum of
chronicling politics and our
human canvas, but he also
opened up a whole new vista
of transformed, as also diver-
gent, constructs. There won’t
be another like him again.

In Punjab, the controversy between Chief
Minister Captain Amarinder Singh vs State Presi-
dent Navjot Singh Sidhu refuses to end. Swords
have come out between the two and in-charge
Harish Rawat is also getting injured in the duel. On
the other hand, the dispute between Chief Minister
Bhupesh Baghel and Health Minister TS Singhdeo
in Chhattisgarh is not getting resolved. Both are
engaged in a show of strength. A cold war is going on between former
Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and
state president DK Shivakumar. The fight
is not going on openly because in the past
the party high command has said that the
2023 assembly elections will not be fought on
anyone’s name i.e. the party will not declare its
Chief Ministerial candidate.
Thereis a fight in Haryana and Bhupinder Singh
Hooda wants the party to contest the elections with him being
declared as the CM candidate. But Randeep Surjewala, Kiran
Chaudhary, Kumari Selja and Captain Ajay Yadav are not ready to
accept it in any way. If this dispute is not resolved, the end result will
be the split of the Congress.
On the other hand, there is no Congress state
committee in Gujarat for two years and for
several months now, the state president and the
leader of the legislature party have resigned, but
the Congress is unable to take a decision.
In Kerala, supporters of old leaders - Oommen Chandy and Ramesh
Chennithala - have opened a front against Rahul Gandhi’s elected state
president K Sudhakaran and new legislature party leader VD Satishan.
14 new district presidents were appointed in the state, against which
there was a huge controversy. As a result, a general secretary and a for-
mer MLA have been suspended, a district president has resigned and a
secretary has been expelled from the party. These four leaders belonged
to the Chandy and Chennithala camps.
There is peace in Rajasthan but beneath the
surface, the dispute between Chief Minister
Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot is not over
and all eyes are on the cabinet expansion
in the state. Apart from these three states,
there is a ruckus within the Congress in
other states of the country as well.

SELECTIVE IGNORANCE OR A CONSIDERED MOVE?
Anita Hada
Silence over tenure of Dr Ramacharyulu
as RS Secy Gen throws a puzzle...
Rakesh Ranjan
New Delhi: Ramacha-
ryulu, missed out on
defining his tenure
leaving avenues for
speculations whether
it’s considered decision
or an indication of an-
other surprise devp. A
section of cadre officers
take it this way only
.
It appears to have
emanated from some
missing links and con-
necting links as well.
The appointment noti-
fication, issued on the
last day of August
month, reads: “Hon’ble
Chairman, RS, has
been pleased to appoint
Dr PPK Ramacharyulu,
Secy, RS Secretariat as
Secy-Gen, RS in rank 
status of Cabinet Secy
on contractual basis
with effect from fore-
noon of Sept 1 until fur-
ther orders.” A section
of people in power cor-
ridors make it a point
that the notification
maintained a conspicu-
ous silence over Dr
PPK’s tenure. A section
of watchers say what
does this order mean?
Will Dr Ramacharyulu
continue till VP Naidu
remains RS chairman?
Or does it mean that a
move is on to wrest post
to service which feels it
is their turf ? It is mur-
mured in official cir-
cles that the New Delhi
was keen to retain Desh
D Verma for a little
more time in his SG
post for his astute
mgmt of Upper House.
And why not?
Interestingly, the in-
side stories further of-
fer a revealing view-
point. Some well-
placed sources say that
Dr PPK’s was consid-
ered to be drafted as
‘officiating SG’ but fi-
nally he was made a
full-fledged SG.
First India Bureau
New Delhi: In Bihar,
BJP  JDU have formed
govt together but both
parties are entangled
with each other, much
like how two opposition
parties fight. State BJP
leaders are constantly
targeting the govern-
ment led by Nitish Ku-
mar and are leaving no
chance to find out the
shortcomings in perfor-
mance of government.
Many leaders have
been deployed for this
task to target Nitish
and repeatedly tell the
people of Bihar that Ni-
tish is a ‘circumstan-
tial’ CM and despite the
less number of seats,
the BJP has done him a
huge favor by making
him the CM. In re-
sponse, JDU has started
its ‘positioning’ and has
started showing its at-
titude towards the BJP.
JD(U) national gen-
eral secretary KC Tyagi
has demanded forma-
tion of a coordination
committee of the BJP-
led NDA. He has re-
minded that during the
time of Atal Bihari Vaj-
payee, there was a coor-
dination committee of
NDA. Tyagi said that if
there is a coordination
committee, then both
the parties can discuss
the issues on which
their opinions do not
match. He has also said
that Nitish may not be a
contender for the post
of PM but he has all the
qualifications for the
post of PM.
Earlier, JDU support-
ed the demand of caste
based census and met
PM Narendra Modi
with LoP Tejashwi Ya-
dav. Prior to this, Nitish
had demanded a probe
into the Pegasus spying
case which is an ex-
tremely sensitive issue
for the BJP and the cen-
tral government, on
which the entire mon-
soon session of Parlia-
ment was stalled. By
demanding an investi-
gation, Nitish has tried
to hurt BJP where it
hurts the most.
WILL THE BJP-JDU
‘QUARREL’ CONTINUE?
Mamata nephew faces ED in coal
pilferage money laundering case
Subhashis Mittra
New Delhi: For 33-year-
old Abhishek Banerjee,
a TMC MP and nephew
of WB CM Mamata Ba-
nerjee, it must have been
a hard realisation that
arms of law are long.
Abhishek, who is also
national gen secy of
TMC, was only star
campaigner of party af-
ter Banerjee in polls
that saw defeat of BJP.
The member of LS,
representing Diamond
Harbour constituency,
had to appear before ED
on Monday for question-
ing in money launder-
ing linked to an alleged
coal pilferage scam. Its
alleged that funds col-
lected by kingpin of
mining Anup Majhi 
others in connivance
with cops reached lead-
ers in WB  other plac-
es globally
.
Speaking to reporters
at the Kolkata airport
on Sunday, the MP had
said that he would get
himself hanged if any
central agency can
prove his involvement
in illegal transaction.
Anup Majhi alias Lala,
is alleged to be prime
suspect in scam involv-
ing Rs 1,352 crore. His
wife Rujira was also
summoned by the agen-
cy in this case on Sep-
tember 1 but she did not
appear citing prevail-
ing Covid  asked agen-
cy to instead question
her in Kolkata.Some
IPS officers  a lawyer
linked to Banerjee have
also been summoned.
Mamata last week ac-
cused Centre of letting
loose its agencies on
nephew  claimed some
BJP ministers were
working with “hand in
glove” with coal mafia.
ED has arrested two
people - Vikas Mishra,
who is stated to have left
country, renounced his
Indian citizenship. A
“deep system” of politi-
cal patronage and “well-
oiled” machinery was
used to brazenly carry
out certain unlawful
coal mining in Bengal.
The Congress party is
ruling in three states and
the condition of the party is

hishek Banerjee has been
summoned to Delhi by the

nection with an alleged
coal smuggling case on
Monday. Reacting to the
statements by TMC MP

that TMC MP is scared
of probe currently going
on in connection with
coal mining scam. The
statement from BJP leader
came after Banerjee
slammed its opposition
over ED’s summon.
CRUCIAL READ

CLOSE-AIDE IN MONEY LAUNDERING CASE
Kolkata: Suvendu Adhikari on Monday did not appear
before WB CID in connection with probe into death of his
bodyguard, stating that he was
busy, an officer said. Adhikari,
BJP’s Nandigram MLA, was sum-
moned by CID to its HQ in connec-
tion with death of his bodyguard
Subhobrata. “He mailed us around
9.30 am, mentioning some politi-
cal engagements due to which he
was unable to come,” a CID officer said. CID held meeting
after receiving email to chalk out next steps into probe, if
another summons would be sent to him, source said.
Mumbai: The ED has summoned RTO officer Bajrang
Kharmate, a close-aide of Maharashtra Minister Anil
Parab in connection with a money
laundering case. According to a
statement, Kharmate has been
asked to appear before agency on
Monday. Earlier on August 29, ED
had summoned Anil Parab in con-
nection with a money laundering
case, following which Parab on
August 31 sought 14 days time to appear before. San-
jay Raut said judicial action was anticipated as Parab is

AFGHAN RESISTANCE LEADER MASSOUD URGES FOR “NATIONAL UPRISING” Kabul: The leader of the resistance movement in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley on Monday called for a “national uprising” against the Taliban. In an audio message sent to media, National Resistance Front commander Ahmad Massoud said: “Wherever you are, inside or outside, I call on you to begin a national uprising for the dignity, freedom and prosperity of our country.” The Taliban published a video of their flag be- ing raised over the governor’s house in Panjshir. SHIV SENA DEFENDS RSS OVER AKHTAR’S COMMENTS SALEH MOHAMMED SECURITY UP AT JAVED’S HOME Mumbai: The Shiv Sena has come to the de- fence of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (the BJP’s ideological mentor) after poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar’s comments comparing the RSS to the Taliban.

In the state, six BJP leaders are roam- ing around pretending to be the candidates of Chief Minister. Out of which now the party has lost in the fields of three leaders. Sharma said the bills are passed with- out debate. This is not in the interest of de- mocracy . PM Modi has done a great job of re- moving Article 370 and barricading the China border. But communi- cation with leaders is equally important. There is a need to re- duce inflation and pro- vide more employment opportunities in the country .

It is our people who have betrayed the party. We are taking the report and those stabbed in the back will not be spared,” Dotasra said at a press conference. “They topple elected govts and this is what they tried to do in Raj last year but could not succeed. It is not the BJP which has won, it is the backstabbing by our people; which has won,” he said. JP state president Satish Poonia has given a befitting reply to his opponents after the victory of BJP candidate Rama Devi in Jaipur district council. He said that the victory of BJP in Panchayat and district council polls is a trailer for 2023. The results are a direct reply to those who see their victory in BJP’s defeat. I dedicate this victory to every worker of BJP and PM Narendra Modi. Poonia said the PCC chief had claimed that BJP will not win and Congress will win all the six seats.

The immediate provocation was the failure of the software behe- moth to deliver a glitch-free por- tal for filing income-tax. The company has until September 15 to sort out the problem. For this the journal accused the IT major of destabilizing the economy . Panchjanya’sunfairandharsh comments may also have been triggered more by Infosys co- founder’s stand on freedom of speech, expression and faith. SpeakingatPoliceJeevanGaurav Awards ceremony in Mumbai in 2018, NR Narayana Murthy said, “…At this critical juncture in the historyof ourcountry ,protecting the…freedom of faith, freedom of expression and freedom from fear---for every citizen is the most important responsibility of the police force”. At IIM Kolkata’s convocation he reiterated his stand on these freedoms. But to liken Infosys with the “tukde-tukde” gang is a danger- ous first. Hope it is the last. T armers have shown their might to the gov- ernments at the Centre and in Ut- tar Pradesh. Whatever the two governments may have to say about the three disput- ed farm laws being in the in- terest of agriculturists, they are not biting the bait. The mega kisan mahapanchayat in Muzaffarnagar on Sunday was not just proof of that but it was also a warning that if the issue is not resolved be- fore the UP and Uttarakhand elections, the governments will have to pay electorally. Rakesh Tikait couldn’t have put it more bluntly when he warned that his “Mission UP, Uttarakhand” will be extend- ed to include the Central gov- ernment too. The Bharatiya Kisan Union president gave a rallying call to change the system to save the country. More specifically, though, he described the rally as a show of strength against the BJP government in UP where farmers are facing “hard- ships”. “Electricity rates are the highest, while sugarcane rates have not gone up since 2016. The Centre has in- creased cane FRP by Rs 5, a mere five paise hike per kg,” Tikait is leart to have said. Tikait has been resolute in his stand on the repeal of the three farm laws and has stat- ed that he will not settle for anything less. When the gov- ernment tried to malign him by calling the farmers’ agita- tion as politically sponsored he broke down and vowed to carry on the protest come what may. That one incident and also the lathi-charge on protesters by the UP police in the middle of the night in- fused fresh energy into the agitation.

He never embraced the word processor, or computer - to write his articles, or books - nor the e-mail. His was a long, consistently prolific innings of 70 years - without a lean trot, from which no batsman is exempt.

This is primar- ily because the path they love to tread presents itself below their feet. The picturesque boulevard they choose may just as well twist, or turn, and impediments would emerge, all right, but they continue onwards and up- wards on their journey . Yet, as my ‘guru,’ M V Kamath, the doyen of Indian journalism — whose 100th birth anniversary falls today — would always tell the path one chooses and pursues with passion and persistence makes the ‘combatant’ in us equipped with the instinctive capacity to complete the voy- age, howsoever difficult it may appear to be. The higher oneclimbs,thebettertheview from one’s summit in one’s own ‘mindful’ Mount Everest. I was in awe of Kamath’s immense erudition and learning. I followed his writ- ings as a budding writer — with diligence. I got to know him personally much later, not only as a seasoned writer, journalist, editor, author, and a much-sought-after speaker, but as a man from my own backyard — or, hometown. I met him more than a handful of times and spoke to him at length — each time convers- ing in Kannada, the language and the cultural backdrop that connected us. I’d think of myself as Ekalavya and I’d often wheedle him as my own Dronacharya. And, he’d quip, each time, pronto, “But, Eka- lavya, without the ‘iniqui- tous’ portent, because, don’t you worry, I will never ever ask for your thumb.” Such images keep falling like raindrops on my head, or rather bald pate — but, what has left a lasting impression on my mind and memory is his serene, gentle, divine face, the mesmeric twinkle in his eyes and his perennial encouraging words for the writer in me. What made my day was he would quickly re- call something I wrote and tell me he liked it. He was so unassuming that I was at ease to converse with him without feeling edgy. This was his greatness. This was something that helped me to get a good grasp of what each of us should aspire for — learning the fundamental lessons in a voyage called life, not simply success with a career option, but under- standing our higher calling to work and expanding on our potential, howsoever small, big, significant, or in- significant. Most importantly, I loved to hear his riveting anecdotes from his vast repository, his remarkable media experi- ence — glimpses from the times past. He’d recall events like a computer accessing files from the hard disk — in a flash — be it tales from his ‘beat’ as a reporter, his post- ings in Bonn, Washington, or elsewhere, including some amusing ‘real-time’ yarn, or strands, traced and pulled from Patagonia, in a jiffy, or compelling details of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s vitriolic temper to utter calm in an instant, or the once friendly and later standoffish Indira Gandhi. His insuperable rep- ertoire and the power of be- ing a lively raconteur would construct fragments into their full identity and mean- ing — something that led one to a deeper level of knowl- edge, long before the Internet became a way of life.

For a science graduate, who toyed with the half- hearted idea of being a chemist, Kamath had a way for authenticity, or valida- tion of his thought process — he thought of it as the light of consciousness that made its way into the shad- ows, or danced with them. Something that one could ac- cept as being a part of us and also others. Yes, not every- one acquiesced to his ‘right- ist’ political leanings. This was palpable — but, what made him exceptional was his enormous body of work, the numerous times he au- thored and edited. This in- cludes “The Sunday Times” and “The Illustrated Weekly of India.” To call Kamath the inex- haustible, also quintessen- tial, wordsmith would be stating the obvious — pri- marily because he cuddled not just the full spectrum of chronicling politics and our human canvas, but he also opened up a whole new vista of transformed, as also diver- gent, constructs.

Swords have come out between the two and in-charge Harish Rawat is also getting injured in the duel. On the other hand, the dispute between Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and Health Minister TS Singhdeo in Chhattisgarh is not getting resolved. Both are engaged in a show of strength. A cold war is going on between former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and state president DK Shivakumar. The fight is not going on openly because in the past the party high command has said that the 2023 assembly elections will not be fought on anyone’s name i.e. the party will not declare its Chief Ministerial candidate. Thereis a fight in Haryana and Bhupinder Singh Hooda wants the party to contest the elections with him being declared as the CM candidate. But Randeep Surjewala, Kiran Chaudhary, Kumari Selja and Captain Ajay Yadav are not ready to accept it in any way. If this dispute is not resolved, the end result will be the split of the Congress. On the other hand, there is no Congress state committee in Gujarat for two years and for several months now, the state president and the leader of the legislature party have resigned, but the Congress is unable to take a decision. In Kerala, supporters of old leaders - Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala - have opened a front against Rahul Gandhi’s elected state president K Sudhakaran and new legislature party leader VD Satishan. 14 new district presidents were appointed in the state, against which there was a huge controversy. As a result, a general secretary and a for- mer MLA have been suspended, a district president has resigned and a secretary has been expelled from the party. These four leaders belonged to the Chandy and Chennithala camps. There is peace in Rajasthan but beneath the surface, the dispute between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot is not over and all eyes are on the cabinet expansion in the state. Apart from these three states, there is a ruckus within the Congress in other states of the country as well.

Anita Hada Silence over tenure of Dr Ramacharyulu as RS Secy Gen throws a puzzle... Rakesh Ranjan New Delhi: Ramacha- ryulu, missed out on defining his tenure leaving avenues for speculations whether it’s considered decision or an indication of an- other surprise devp. A section of cadre officers take it this way only . It appears to have emanated from some missing links and con- necting links as well. The appointment noti- fication, issued on the last day of August month, reads: “Hon’ble Chairman, RS, has been pleased to appoint Dr PPK Ramacharyulu, Secy, RS Secretariat as Secy-Gen, RS in rank status of Cabinet Secy on contractual basis with effect from fore- noon of Sept 1 until fur- ther orders.” A section of people in power cor- ridors make it a point that the notification maintained a conspicu- ous silence over Dr PPK’s tenure. A section of watchers say what does this order mean? Will Dr Ramacharyulu continue till VP Naidu remains RS chairman? Or does it mean that a move is on to wrest post to service which feels it is their turf ? It is mur- mured in official cir- cles that the New Delhi was keen to retain Desh D Verma for a little more time in his SG post for his astute mgmt of Upper House. And why not? Interestingly, the in- side stories further of- fer a revealing view- point. Some well- placed sources say that Dr PPK’s was consid- ered to be drafted as ‘officiating SG’ but fi- nally he was made a full-fledged SG. First India Bureau New Delhi: In Bihar, BJP JDU have formed govt together but both parties are entangled with each other, much like how two opposition parties fight. State BJP leaders are constantly targeting the govern- ment led by Nitish Ku- mar and are leaving no chance to find out the shortcomings in perfor- mance of government. Many leaders have been deployed for this task to target Nitish and repeatedly tell the people of Bihar that Ni- tish is a ‘circumstan- tial’ CM and despite the less number of seats, the BJP has done him a huge favor by making him the CM. In re- sponse, JDU has started its ‘positioning’ and has started showing its at- titude towards the BJP. JD(U) national gen- eral secretary KC Tyagi has demanded forma- tion of a coordination committee of the BJP- led NDA. He has re- minded that during the time of Atal Bihari Vaj- payee, there was a coor- dination committee of NDA. Tyagi said that if there is a coordination committee, then both the parties can discuss the issues on which their opinions do not match. He has also said that Nitish may not be a contender for the post of PM but he has all the qualifications for the post of PM. Earlier, JDU support- ed the demand of caste based census and met PM Narendra Modi with LoP Tejashwi Ya- dav. Prior to this, Nitish had demanded a probe into the Pegasus spying case which is an ex- tremely sensitive issue for the BJP and the cen- tral government, on which the entire mon- soon session of Parlia- ment was stalled. By demanding an investi- gation, Nitish has tried to hurt BJP where it hurts the most. WILL THE BJP-JDU ‘QUARREL’ CONTINUE?

People of the country and the state have made up their mind that now they will teach a lesson to BJP in all upcoming elections.” Informing about the results, Gehlot stressed that out of 1564 wards, Congress has won in 670 wards (42.77%), BJP in 551 wards (35.17%) and independ- ents in 371 wards. “Most of the independ- ents are also Congress- backed candidates. Out of 78 panchayat sami- tis, Congress candi- dates have become the head of 50 panchayat samitis. The BJP could make merely half of Congress’ figures and out of these also, 10 Pradhans won by a margin of just 1 vote. Similarly, in 200 wards of Zilla Parishad, Con- gress won 99 wards, BJP 90 wards and 11 went to others. Con- gress got majority in 4 out of 6 Zilla Parishads. Congress has made its district chiefs in 3 plac- es, he said. “Till yesterday, the BJP, which was accus- ing the government of misuse of power, has made its district chief by resorting to horse trading in Jaipur Zila Parishad. “I couldn’t visit Jodhpur for a long time due to post-Covid problems, but people of Jodhpur have support- ed Congress, due to which Zila Pramukh Pradhans of 12 Pan- chayat samitis belong to Congress.Icongratulate all winners.” To succeed one must have both in equal measure- talent and character. —Jagdeesh Chandra, CEO Editor-in-Chief, First India JAIPUR | TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2021 www.firstindia.co.in I www.firstindia.co.in/epaper/ I twitter.com/thefirstindia I facebook.com/thefirstindia I instagram.com/thefirstindia 08 2NDFRONT POSTAL REG NO.

BJPshouldstopdreamingof coming to power in Raj: CM JAGAT BREAKS INTO OPPOSITION ‘BASTION’! Jagat Singh flashes his victory certificate as his suporters cheer for him in Bharatpur after winning Panchayat polls. Bharatpur: Veteran politician Natwar Singh’s son - Jagat Singh - has achieved a political feat, that many believed was impossible. Jagat, who was contesting for the Bharatpur Zila Pramukh from BJP has managed not only win the election but also break into the opposition securing all but 9 votes. Out of the 37 votes, Jagat man- aged to clinch 28, even though BJP had merely 17 votes in its favour. The pedigreed politician, who has been elected legislator on multiple occasions as well, managed to sway 11 Congress and independ- ent votes in his favour, as a result, achieving the feat. For winning the Bharatpur Zila Pari- shad, a minimum of 19 votes were needed but Singh, with his massive popularity, received the support of nine more in- dividuals. Notably, even though Congress had 14 members, its candidate - Halima - could muster merely 9 votes as a few Congress candidates cross-voted against her. Jagat Singh after taking oath as Zila Pramukh said, “Today I have got 28 votes and Congress has got only 9 votes. It is clear that a wave of change is going on in Bharatpur. All the members of Congress, who have voted in my favour, they have done so happily, because everyone knows that only BJP can bring development, so they have voted in my favour. Now rural areas will de- velop because Congress leaders are only busy filling their pockets. They have nothing to do with development. But now after the formation of BJP’s board in the Zila Parishad, there will be development in rural areas.” CM Ashok Gehlot Sachin Pilot Hiimat Abhilash Tak UDH Minister Shanti Dhariwal sees a copy of First India Newspaper while interacting with the CMD of First India Jagdeesh Chandra during the knowledge conference at Hotel Marriott.

YOUR DAY Horoscope by Saurabbh Sachdeva ver 40 Television teams from various countries and re- porters have cap- tured various tones of Jaipur from Nawab Saheb Ki Haveli. The famous pho- tographer Raghu Rai has included photographs of ‘Nawab Saheb Ki Haveli’ in his internationally ac- claimed book ‘Dreams of India’. Likewise, seeing the popularity of the Have- li, National Geographic Channel also featured a series on it. India’s former President Gyani Zail Singh and many other national international dignitaries visited the place. Just as the Mughal Em- peror Alauddin Khilji glimpsed the immensely beautiful Maharani Pad- mini through a mirror, the picturesque beauty of the entirewalledcityof Jaipur can be seen through rec- tangular shaped mirrors installed at the interna- tionally renowned 18th- century Nawab Saheb Ki Haveli at Tripoliya Bazar near City Palace in Jaipur. Triloki Das Khandelwal, owner of ‘Nawab Sahab ki Haveli’ was quite old when I visited the Haveli and met him. He enthusiastically climbed the stairs of the haveli and took me to the roof to show a panoramic view of the pink city . I wit- nessed this incredible sight and spotted about 25 his- toric monuments and plac- es of Jaipur through the two mirrors on the terrace. In the year 1958, Jaipur’s renowned Iron ore busi- nessman Trilokidas Khan- delwal acquired the haveli in an auction. The Haveli has about 50 owners but the best portion of the Haveli where Chief Archi- tect Vidyadhar stayed was with Khandelwal. Through his imagina- tion, Khandelwal installed two rectangular-shaped mirrors in 1983 on each end at Haveli’s terrace. These mirrors can rotate 90 degrees and one can see almost every fort and oth- er archaeological beauties of Jaipur like Pink City’s crown Nahargarh Fort, Gad Ganesh, Jal mahal, Jantar Mantar, HawaMa- hal’s front view, Huge cen- otaph of Chandra Mahal, Sargasuli, SawaiMansin- gh Town Hall, Jaigarh Fort, Albert Hall, Moti Doongri Ganesh Temple, and Birla Temple with other sky-high buildings of the city. Khandelwal who died in 2019 opened this place for tourists. Peo- ple get a panoramic view of the city, its colourful markets, monuments, and roads with surroundings of hills, forts, and temples from this haveli. The magnificent Nawab Saheb Ki Haveli: MIRROR OF PINK CITY ANUBHA JAIN jainanubha1@outlook.com O In 1987, this Haveli was included as the fifth top tourist spot of Jaipur in the guide books of the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, and Government of Rajasthan. This tallest mansion located at the heart of the city was constructed in the 18th century as the abode of Sawai Maha- raja Jai Singh Ji’s Minister and Chief Architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh had decided to build Jaipur as the new capital for Rajasthan. So, the sole reason for building such a gigantic Haveli in the core of the city was to oversee the entire construction and development work of the city from one place. The haveli passed on from Maharaja Jai Singh to Maharaja Jagat Singh and from him to Maharaja Ram Singh II. Then he presented it to his Prime Minister Nawab Sir Faiz Ali Khan. Khan beautified the Haveli with big halls and gold paintings. The Haveli passed on to his descendants and as the last one, Mohammed Mukarrum did not have any son, it was again acquired by the Jaipur dynasty.
