Bhopal
PM Narendra Modi inter-
acted with BJP booth
workers in Bhopal on
Tuesday. His address to
over 10 lakh grassroots
workers of the party
comes ahead of Assem-
bly elections in Madhya
Pradesh, it is seen as an
indicator of the BJP’s fo-
cus for 2024.
UCC: PM Modi high-
lighted the subject of
UCC saying how can the
country be run by two
laws. Hitting out at crit-
ics, he said people are be-
ing instigated in the name
of the Uniform Civil
Code. PM said, “Indian
Constitution speaks
about equal rights for
citizens. Oppn blame us
but these very people
make hue and cry about
Muslims. If they would
have truly supported
Muslims, then most
Muslim families would
not have been deprived
of education, and em-
ployment.” Pasmanda
Muslims were victims of
Opposition’s vote bank
politics, he added.
TRIPLE TALAQ: PM
Modi came down heavily
on supporters of Triple
Talaq. He said, “Those
who are supporting the
triple talaq are doing
grave injustice to Muslim
daughters.” He said that
Triple Talaq not only
harms daughters but also
breaks families and soci-
ety at large. “Egypt is a
Sunni majority nation,
Triple Talaq was banned
80 yrs ago.”  MORE ON P5

TO OPEN INDUSTRIAL UNITS
Now, no need to send land
use files for change to govt
First India Bureau
Jaipur
o open indus-
trial units in
small munici-
pality areas in Rajasthan,
land use change will
now be done by commit-
tees formed under the
chairmanship of the col-
lector in the districts.
After this decision, there
will be no need to send
files for land use change
to the government.
This decision of gov-
ernment has come at the
end of the term, so that
files are not disposed of
at the ministerial level. If
a new government comes
too power, then ministers
have found a new way to
avoid the investigation.
This is the third such
decision of the Urban De-
velopment Department in
the last two months. In
this, the minister’s in-
volvement in big matters
has been done away with.
Earlier, the urban bodies
had increased the rights
to do 90B of land and is-
sue leases.

THE FUTURE OF
OPPN UNITY
Despite being in middle
of a highly volatile situa-
tion given fact that State
panchayat polls are just
a couple of weeks away,
TMC supremo and WB CM,
Mamata Banerjee, went
out of her way to strike
a rapport with everyone.
Also, it must be noted that
she met with the Congress
cordially given the fact that
the Grand Old Party is at
loggerheads with her in
the state of West Bengal.
SP Akhilesh Yadav too
despite differences with
Congress handled the situa-
tion deftly. AAP’s rebellious
mode was a spoiler in the
Conclave and indicated
rough weather and
turbulence ahead.
n June 23, 2023,
the biggest Op-
position bonho-
mie, camarade-
rie and bonding
was witnessed since 2014.
Around 16 parties made it to the
much-hyped Patna Conclave.
On the face of it, nothing
much was concretised about
building a force to take on the
Saffron might. However, ac-
cording to Congress chief,
Mallikarjun Kharge, the next
focus will shift towards the
Shimla meet.
Except for the palpable ten-
sion created by the AAP, most
parties had a feel-good mo-
ment and leaders exchanged
pleasantries and some “heads
of the pariwar” were even con-
cerned over the marriage of
Congress scion Rahul Gandhi.
However, it must be noted
here that the no invitation was
extended to KCR’s Bharat
Rashtra Samithi. Also,
Mayawati had her reasons to
be unhappy as BSP, too, was
not invited.
I need to mention here that
after having launched his own
unity bid, KCR has been hint-
ing post the Karnataka results
that he would rather go it
alone. Similarly, the BJD’s
Naveen Patnaik, the JD(S)’s
HD Deve Gowda, the BSP’s
Mayawati and the YSRCP’s
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy have
made clear their preference for
maintaining equidistant from
both an Opposition and a BJP
front.
Despite an attempt and de-
spite the efforts of some lead-
ers who trekked the extra mile
to extend an olive branch,
AAP’s stance has left a bitter
taste in the mouth and politi-
cal analysts are already talk-
ing about the tatters in the at-
tempt to stitch an Opposition
unity.
That the Congress is utterly
unhappy with the AAP was
evident when senior Congress
leader Ajay Maken on Sunday
hit out atAAPfor taking swipes
at his party and alleged that
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind
Kejriwal’s proclamations on
Opposition unity are not for
cohesion but a “calculated
move to sabotage it to “curry
favour” with the BJP.
CONGRESS HAS TO BE
ACCOMMODATING
The fulcrum of Opposition
unity depends on how accom-
modating the Congress is and
whether AAP will calm down
and join the brigade. Congress
on its part has a huge role to
play and this was rightly men-
tioned by Lalu Prasad.
Keeping the jokes apart on
asking Rahul to get married,
the shrewd politician, Lalu
Prasad, told the Congress that
it should be “large-hearted-
ness” and that the biggest party
in every state should lead the
fight in that state, with others
extending support and cooper-
ation to it. Mamata took the
opportunity to slam the Con-
gress on its understanding with
the Left forces in West Bengal.
TMC, on its part, has been
trying to create a toehold in
several states and had hence
fought several Assembly elec-
tions, of course the party failed
to impress voters and currently,
the Election Commission has
signalled that the party was not
a national party given its total
vote share.
Internal and intra state bick-
erings are a major hurdle for
the Opposition Unity. It is to be
seen how comfortable the
CPI(M) will be with the TMC
in the Mahagathbandhan. Op-
position leaders, however, ar-
gue that they are willing to
overlook the intra state issues
for the bigger picture.
In UP, the SP is no longer
insistent on going it alone, pro-
vided the Congress acknowl-
edges that the SP is the main
Opposition force in the state.
What could move the needle in
this regard is the buzz about a
possible BSP-Congress tie-up.
Some in the BSP say Mayawa-
ti is keeping a watch on the
developments in the Opposi-
tion camp and, despite taking a
position that her party will con-
test the 2024 elections alone,
may take a final decision on an
alliance closer to the elections.
However, one thorny issue
with the AAP and Congress in
DelhiandPunjab.Sourcesinthe
Congress claim that the AAP,
which rode to power on an anti-
Congress wave, is keen on a tie-
up in Delhi but in Punjab, where
the Congress is much more con-
fident, the situation is different.
However, the AAP’s attack
against the Congress at the
Patna Conclave will do no
good to the Opposition unity.
And several times, Congress
has expressed its dissatisfac-
tion with AAP in Delhi. How
the two largest parties, in the
Opposition camp, will walk the
way through to Lok Sabha in
this Mahagathbandhan is the
cynosure of all eyes. However,
the feel-good factor at the Con-
clave was the only solace.
Also, the sentiment in the
Opposition camp is hope, and
the belief that parties are will-
ing to make some “compro-
mises here and there” to oust
the BJP from power. “It is a
larger fight. We know the chal-
lenges. There will be some
compromises and we shall suc-
ceed in keeping the unity in-
tact,” a non-Congress leader
said.Also, the Opposition lead-
ers must realise that voters are
watching them and their ac-
tions speak louder than words!

Maken
Speaks
AAP’s ministers place
prerequisites on our
alliance, while their chief
spokesperson publicly
disparages our party and
leaders on the day of the
Opposition party
meeting. To brazenly
criticise and then
demand support, is this
how alliances are
sought, Kejriwal?
Kejriwal’s political
manoeuvres in recent
weeks have left many
baffled. However, let me
elucidate the truth. His
desperate attempts to
evade imprisonment on
corruption charges,
wherein two of his
colleagues are already
jailed, are reasons for
these actions.
Kejriwal’s betrayals are
infamous — just ask
Prashant Bhushan,
Yogendra Yadav, and the
founders of the Anna
movement...
However, be assured,
Kejriwal, your deeds
have not gone
unnoticed. Your massive
corruption and
utilisation of these ill-
gotten funds to
sabotage the Congress in
Goa, Gujarat, Punjab,
Himachal, Uttarakhand,
and Assam, just to help
the BJP, won’t be
forgotten.
Your actions have
unmasked the grim
truth, Kejriwal. You’re no
longer a champion of
the ‘Aam Aadmi’ or a
crusader against
corruption. Instead, you
stand knee-deep in
corruption, living a lavish
lifestyle like a king in
your ‘Sheesh Mahal’.

After this decision, there will be no need to send files for land use change to the government. This decision of gov- ernment has come at the end of the term, so that files are not disposed of at the ministerial level. If a new government comes too power, then ministers have found a new way to avoid the investigation. This is the third such decision of the Urban De- velopment Department in the last two months. In this, the minister’s in- volvement in big matters has been done away with. Earlier, the urban bodies had increased the rights to do 90B of land and is- sue leases.

BIBLE PERSPECT VE www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia 04 Jaipur, Wednesday | June 28, 2023 THE FUTURE OF OPPN UNITY Despite being in middle of a highly volatile situa- tion given fact that State panchayat polls are just a couple of weeks away, TMC supremo and WB CM, Mamata Banerjee, went out of her way to strike a rapport with everyone. Also, it must be noted that she met with the Congress cordially given the fact that the Grand Old Party is at loggerheads with her in the state of West Bengal. SP Akhilesh Yadav too despite differences with Congress handled the situa- tion deftly. AAP’s rebellious mode was a spoiler in the Conclave and indicated rough weather and turbulence ahead. n June 23, 2023, the biggest Op- position bonho- mie, camarade- rie and bonding was witnessed since 2014. Around 16 parties made it to the much-hyped Patna Conclave. On the face of it, nothing much was concretised about building a force to take on the Saffron might. However, ac- cording to Congress chief, Mallikarjun Kharge, the next focus will shift towards the Shimla meet. Except for the palpable ten- sion created by the AAP, most parties had a feel-good mo- ment and leaders exchanged pleasantries and some “heads of the pariwar” were even con- cerned over the marriage of Congress scion Rahul Gandhi. However, it must be noted here that the no invitation was extended to KCR’s Bharat Rashtra Samithi. Also, Mayawati had her reasons to be unhappy as BSP, too, was not invited. I need to mention here that after having launched his own unity bid, KCR has been hint- ing post the Karnataka results that he would rather go it alone. Similarly, the BJD’s Naveen Patnaik, the JD(S)’s HD Deve Gowda, the BSP’s Mayawati and the YSRCP’s YS Jagan Mohan Reddy have made clear their preference for maintaining equidistant from both an Opposition and a BJP front. Despite an attempt and de- spite the efforts of some lead- ers who trekked the extra mile to extend an olive branch, AAP’s stance has left a bitter taste in the mouth and politi- cal analysts are already talk- ing about the tatters in the at- tempt to stitch an Opposition unity. That the Congress is utterly unhappy with the AAP was evident when senior Congress leader Ajay Maken on Sunday hit out atAAPfor taking swipes at his party and alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s proclamations on Opposition unity are not for cohesion but a “calculated move to sabotage it to “curry favour” with the BJP. CONGRESS HAS TO BE ACCOMMODATING The fulcrum of Opposition unity depends on how accom- modating the Congress is and whether AAP will calm down and join the brigade. Congress on its part has a huge role to play and this was rightly men- tioned by Lalu Prasad. Keeping the jokes apart on asking Rahul to get married, the shrewd politician, Lalu Prasad, told the Congress that it should be “large-hearted- ness” and that the biggest party in every state should lead the fight in that state, with others extending support and cooper- ation to it. Mamata took the opportunity to slam the Con- gress on its understanding with the Left forces in West Bengal. TMC, on its part, has been trying to create a toehold in several states and had hence fought several Assembly elec- tions, of course the party failed to impress voters and currently, the Election Commission has signalled that the party was not a national party given its total vote share. Internal and intra state bick- erings are a major hurdle for the Opposition Unity. It is to be seen how comfortable the CPI(M) will be with the TMC in the Mahagathbandhan. Op- position leaders, however, ar- gue that they are willing to overlook the intra state issues for the bigger picture. In UP, the SP is no longer insistent on going it alone, pro- vided the Congress acknowl- edges that the SP is the main Opposition force in the state. What could move the needle in this regard is the buzz about a possible BSP-Congress tie-up. Some in the BSP say Mayawa- ti is keeping a watch on the developments in the Opposi- tion camp and, despite taking a position that her party will con- test the 2024 elections alone, may take a final decision on an alliance closer to the elections. However, one thorny issue with the AAP and Congress in DelhiandPunjab.Sourcesinthe Congress claim that the AAP, which rode to power on an anti- Congress wave, is keen on a tie- up in Delhi but in Punjab, where the Congress is much more con- fident, the situation is different. However, the AAP’s attack against the Congress at the Patna Conclave will do no good to the Opposition unity. And several times, Congress has expressed its dissatisfac- tion with AAP in Delhi. How the two largest parties, in the Opposition camp, will walk the way through to Lok Sabha in this Mahagathbandhan is the cynosure of all eyes. However, the feel-good factor at the Con- clave was the only solace. Also, the sentiment in the Opposition camp is hope, and the belief that parties are will- ing to make some “compro- mises here and there” to oust the BJP from power. “It is a larger fight. We know the chal- lenges. There will be some compromises and we shall suc- ceed in keeping the unity in- tact,” a non-Congress leader said.Also, the Opposition lead- ers must realise that voters are watching them and their ac- tions speak louder than words! THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL O MUCHADOABOUTOPPNUNITY… ISITAMYTHORREALITY? Robin Roy The writer is Senior Journalist and former Managing Editor, First India Maken Speaks AAP’s ministers place prerequisites on our alliance, while their chief spokesperson publicly disparages our party and leaders on the day of the Opposition party meeting. To brazenly criticise and then demand support, is this how alliances are sought, Kejriwal? Kejriwal’s political manoeuvres in recent weeks have left many baffled. However, let me elucidate the truth. His desperate attempts to evade imprisonment on corruption charges, wherein two of his colleagues are already jailed, are reasons for these actions. Kejriwal’s betrayals are infamous — just ask Prashant Bhushan, Yogendra Yadav, and the founders of the Anna movement... However, be assured, Kejriwal, your deeds have not gone unnoticed. Your massive corruption and utilisation of these ill- gotten funds to sabotage the Congress in Goa, Gujarat, Punjab, Himachal, Uttarakhand, and Assam, just to help the BJP, won’t be forgotten. Your actions have unmasked the grim truth, Kejriwal. You’re no longer a champion of the ‘Aam Aadmi’ or a crusader against corruption. Instead, you stand knee-deep in corruption, living a lavish lifestyle like a king in your ‘Sheesh Mahal’.

The report of a survey conducted by an agency was also discussed in the meeting attended by Congress in charge for Rajasthan Sukhjinder Randhawa, PCC chief Govind Singh Dotasra, co in charge Amrrita Dhawan, Qazi Nizamud- din and Veerendra Singh Rathore. Reports given by the co in charge were also discussed. Referring to the survey report, party sources said that there are no winna- ble candidates in about 70 seats.

If all goes well, the party high command would, as per CM’s sug- gestion, activate the win- nable candidates without declaring the name. The survey was done on seats where Congress has been weak. There are about 70 seats in Raj where Congress doesn’t have a winning face. There are seats where Congress has lost the last three polls. These seats have remained a strong- hold of BJP. RLP and BTP have wrested seats from Congress. Dudu MLA is independent of Congress ideology while Tijara and Kis- hangarh Bas were won by BSP candidates who joined Congress. Cong couldn’t win even after delimitation. Now, CM has tried to give a politi- cal message by making some such seats dists.

Naresh Sharma Congress leaders discuss myriad issues in Delhi BJPpollbugle:Topleadersvisiting RajasthanaheadofAssemblypolls Shekhawat couldn’t get a single penny from Centre for ERCP: Khera First India Bureau New Delhi Union Jal Shakti Minis- ter Gajendra Singh Shek- hawat’s remark in a video that he will get the East- ern Rajasthan Canal Pro- ject (ERCP) implement- ed if BJPleader Rajendra Rathore comes to power in the state has triggered a sharp reaction from the Congress. “This shows the BJP has not granted national project status to the ERCP only because of greed for power. This statement shows that the BJP has no sympathy for the suffering of the peo- ple of Rajasthan and the BJP has not given status of a national project or any special grant to ERCP only because of greed for power,” said Pawan Khera, Chairman of media publicity, AICC. “CM Ashok Gehlot has publicly clarified whether the Centre coop- erates or not, the work on the ERCP will be com- pleted in the interest of the public,” he added. Food and Civil Sup- plies Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas accused the Centre of in- dulging in vendetta poli- tics over the matter. GS Shekhawat’s statement over ERCP is an insult to public sentiment of Rajasthan. Shekhawat said that form the BJP govt in Raj, I will give Rs 46,000cr. This remark shows that BJP has no sympathy towards the suffering of Raj people. This also shows the BJP hasn’t granted national project status to ERCP only because of greed for power. PAWAN KHERA, CHAIRMAN, MEDIA PUBLICITY DEPT, AICC ABOUT UNION MINISTER’S VIRAL VIDEO In a purported video that emerged on social media, Shekhawat is seen walking towards his vehicle with Rathore, the Leader of Opposition in Rajasthan Assembly, and heard telling some people, ‘’I will get the ERCP implemented... give Rs 46,000 crore but you bring Rajendra Rathore to power (in Rajasthan).’’ The Jal Shakti minister and Rathore were in Sawai Madhopur on Monday. The video was shot by someone present there. Shekhawat’s take on ERCP is an insult to Rajasthan, says Congress leader Pawan Khera WAS EXPLAINING ERCP ISSUE TO A PARTY WORKER: GS SHEKHAWAT Bikaner: Reacting to his video over ERCP com- ments, Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat told the First India that he was explain- ing the issue to a worker as to why the ERCP does not happen in Rajasthan. “Because the policy of this govern- ment is to serve its own political interests and not to quench the thirst of the people. We do not do politics on water, we will do this on the same day the state government gives the consent. The day Ashok Gehlot’s government will go and BJP’s government will come to power, the consent will be sent and these 13 districts of Rajasthan will get water,” he said. The Minister said that the MP government has given consent in the perspective in which the Centre wants to take this river linking project. Laxman Raghav Dr S Agarwal, a strong contender for CS post!

  • 11. City First cityfirst@firstindia.co.in hree Cement Limited is among India’s top 3 cement p r o d u c e r s . Since the time of its inception it has been committed to creating value for all its stakeholders through community initiatives and sustainable practices. Shree SikshaYojna “Shree Ki Pathshala”  BACKGROUND Imagine a scenario where stu- dents walk miles in scorching heat carrying school bags to at- tend classes; where different classes take place in the same room; syllabuses seldom com- plete due to acute staff deficit; computers gather dust as there is no one to teach; passing out of schools remains one of the big- gest challenges and sending a child to school could mean a meal or two less for a family. In such a dismal situation, Shree Ki Pathshala’s initiative to help schools with especially-trained qualified teachers has not only brought a remarkable change in the performance of the students but also a sea change in the way students, parents, teachers and communities have started look- ing at education as a means of empowerment and ensuring a good future. All these became possible due to few extra hours of effort by the tutors of Shree Ki Pathshala that opened up the mind’s windows  OBJECTIVE Many school students from poor families in the remote villages of Ajmer district in Rajasthan, who did not want to go to the schools, now want to pursue higher stud- ies and careers. The reason – Shree Ki Pathshala (SKP). Where going to school means walking a few miles in the scorching sun each day lugging a school bag is a challenge in itself. But passing out of school has been a far bigger challenge for the poor students many of whom are the first generation school goers in their family. Remarkable changes took place in four Government-run schools in Andheri Deori, Lulwa, Lasadia and Neemgarh where a pilot project called Shree Ki Pathshala (SKP) was started by Shree Cement Limit- ed as a part of its corporate so- cial responsibility (CSR) initia- tive to reach out to students from the poor families. The Shree Ki Pathshala pro- ject took off in 2016 when four government-run schools were adopted to introduce special coaching to the poorest students. The impact of the initiative was well beyond expectations. Adearth of qualified teaching staff at most schools in the dis- trict which are unable to com- plete the syllabus. Space too is a big constraint in schools and dif- ferent classes share the same room at the same time. The takes its toll on the quality of educa- tion. Students from the poor families, who have no means or resources at home, are the worst affected. Understanding the fact that transport and commuting was a major issue, Shree Ki Pathshala introduced qualified teachers to coach school students in science and mathematics after school hours to fill in the acute staff deficit. Shree Ki Pathshala tutors give much emphasis on quality of teaching and also ensure that the students are comfortable during the class and see the tu- tors as friends and share their problems. Within two years under the Shree Ki Pathshala scheme, three of the schools in Lulwa, Lasadia and NeemGarh regis- tered 100 per cent of students passing out of school in 2017- 18 for the first time in its his- tory while one SKP school in Andheri Deori show marked improvement with 89 per cent of students successfully passing higher secondary exams. Some of the students, who never im- agined passing out of school went on to score high marks and were rewarded by the state government.

The marked improvement in the results under SKP has been no- ticed by other schools. We are receiv- ing numerous requests from the prin- cipals of others schools in the region to introduce project Shree Ki Path- shala in their schools as well. The biggest impact of SKP has been to enthuse the poorest of students to take up higher education and look forward to a career. In villages, where education awareness is almost non-existent, there has been a silent revolution among the students, par- ents and the village community at large. They are now seeing education as the means of empowerment and ensuring a good future,” said Mr Sanjay Mehta, Shree Cement Ltd. A FEW FACTS “BEFORE AND AFTER SHREE KI PATHSHALA ” ARE AS GIVEN BELOW:- AFTER INTRODUCTION OF THIRD AND FOURTH SHREE KI PATHSHALAS, FEW FACTS “BEFORE AND AFTER SKP” ARE AS GIVEN BELOW:- IMPACT  SUCCESS STORY Shree Ki Pathshala’s coaching team has worked out a semester- style approach to teaching sci- ence and math where each stu- dent is assessed on a daily basis and individual progress reports prepared. The real achievement of SKP has been to break the barriers that kept students from sharing their problems. SKP has also introduced mock examina- tions prior to the higher second- ary exam where the students are taught how to approach exams in a scientific manner and ensure a higher percentage of marks. The students are well prepared in advance to face the secondary board exams. Special classes are also conducted by SKP on Sun- days when necessary. “One of our first tasks is to connect with each student in a way he or she feels absolutely at ease to stand up and share with us their problems. Once we es- tablish this much of our teaching work becomes easy. It is quite like opening up the mind’s win- dows one by one. The results have been well beyond our im- agination,” said Mr Mohammad Talib Masur, a special staff of Shree Ki Pathshala who teaches mathematics to the students. Most of the students are the children of poor labourers, farm- ers and stone breakers for whom sending a child to the school could mean having a meal or two less at home. Ever since the Shree Ki Path- shala project was started six years ago, there has been a steady increase in the enrollment of students in our schools. Many parents, who have noticed the sharp improvement in the results of our schools have approached us with requests to shift their children to our schools, said the head of Rajkiya Madhyamik Vidyalaya, Neemgarh. “It was a big surprise when my community elders, for the first time in known memory, held a special event to felicitate me for scoring high marks in school. Earlier, others have been felicitated for sports, bravery and other activities but none for excellence in education,” said one of the students from Chee- tah-Kathat-Mehrat community. This community is spread over four districts ofAjmer, Bhilwara, Pali and Rajsamand in Rajasthan and has very low literacy levels. SHREE CEMENT LIMITED, BEAWAR, RAJASTHAN Face Day of the
