OTHER TOP RAJ STORIES
First India Bureau
Jaipur: Ever since the
construction of the new
building of the Ra-
jasthan Legislative As-
sembly, all the MLAs
have never sat together
here. Referring to this,
Congress lead-
er and former MLA
from Nagaur Habibur
Rahman has said that
this is because of the
presence of a spirit
in the assembly
build-
ing. Rahman has de-
manded that prayers be
conducted to ward off
the spirit. He said,
“There is a spirit in the
assembly building, who
feels that injustice has
been done to
him.
That is why all the 200
MLAs could never sit
togetherhere.Measures
should be taken to paci-
fy the spirit.”
The former MLA said
that when Harishankar
Bhabhada was speaker
intheoldassembly
,then
a delegation visited
to build this new
building. I was also
in it. “The munici-
pal corporation
used to throw gar-
bage on one side of
this assembly land.
On one side was the
crematorium. On one
hand is children’s cem-
etery and on other side
people used to cultivate.
There was also a well.”
He further said that
where the assembly
building stands, people
used to do agriculture.
“At the time when the
land was acquired, the
farmers would have
been promised compen-
sation but they have not
got it to date. Many have
died without compensa-
tion. There is something
here,” he said.
First India Bureau
Jaipur: The National
Human Rights Commis-
sion (NHRC) has taken
action taking cogni-
zance of the horse-trad-
ing case of girls in Ra-
jasthan. The commis-
sion has asked the Ra-
jasthan govt to submit a
report on the entire mat-
ter in four weeks.
Apart from this, Spe-
cial Representative of
the Commission Umesh
Kumar Sharma has also
been asked to visit the
affected areas and give
information in three
months. On the other
hand, the Rajasthan
Child Protection Com-
mission has also come
into action and called a
meeting in Jaipur on
Friday. Commission
member Shiv Bhagwan
Naga said that this is a
very serious matter
and reports will be
sought from the affect-
ed districts for what ac-
tion to be taken. After

tions will be given.

Dr Rituraj Sharma
Jaipur: After the pur-
chase of new state air-
craft and helicopters
has been put on hold,
the Rajasthan govern-
ment has issued a ten-
der for taking helicop-
ters on rent for 10
months. Earlier, the
state government had

months but now with

proaching; a fresh ten-
der has been issued for
taking a 5 to 8-seater
helicopter on rent for
another 10 months.

offers a minimum bid
with VVIP facilities in
the helicopter will get
the contract. It may be
noted that only one year
is left for the state as-
semblyelectionsandthe
process of purchasing a
new helicopter or a
plane would take a time
period from six months
to one and a half years.
Therefore, the plan to
purchase a new 12-seat-
er jet plane and the mul-
ti-turbinehelicopterhas
also been put on hold.
In such a situation,
the government decided
to take a helicopter on
rentfortheelectionyear

tion year. At the same
time, the need for a

is also being felt. The
state government has
already auctioned
its jinxed helicopter.
Sources said that
other options like the
purchase of B250, the
latest version of B200

been considered be-
cause the delivery of

craft could have been
done in 3 months.

ADULTERATION IS BIGGER CRIME
THAN MURDER: SHRC CHAIRPERSON
Jodhpur: Chairperson of Rajasthan State Human

on Thursday took a meeting of Health and Food
Department officials at circuit house in Jodhpur
and directed them to take stringent action against
food adulteration. Chairperson Justice Gopal
Krishna Vyas said that adulteration of food items
is a bigger offense than murder. “The Shudh Ke
Liye Yudh Abhiyan is a good initiative undertaken
by state government. CM Ashok Gehlot is serious
about this campaign. However, due to lack of food
inspectors, effective action is difficult. Adulteration
is a bigger crime than murder,” said Justice Gopal

Who is Rishi Sunak, the new UK prime minister?
hen Rishi Su-
nak was elected
by Conserva-
tive MPs as
their new lead-
er and hence prime minis-
ter of the United Kingdom,
theBritishnationbreathed
a sigh of relief: thank God
it wasn’t Boris Johnson.
Had Johnson been re-elect-
ed leader it would have
had serious consequences,
not just for the Conserva-
tives, but in the real world
too. Only the most obtuse
political observer could
have failed to see that the
optics of cutting short
your Caribbean holiday to
try to resolve a cost of liv-
ing crisis was not good
politics. It sounds hard to
believe, but this was not
obvious to everyone.
Johnson garnered pub-
lic support from some of
the Brexiteer old guard
like Jacob Rees-Mogg and
in the pro-Boris media.
But in characteristic fash-
ion, Johnson exaggerated
his chances. This latest act
of self-promotion back-
fired and he withdrew
from the leadership race
on Sunday (regretably
having missed half his
holiday). Nevertheless, the
fact that many Conserva-
tives seriously thought a
chaotic government could
be brought under control
by someone known for
chaotic management,
shows how deep the ideo-
logical divisions within
the party have become.
With the third contend-
er, Penny Mordaunt, fall-
ing just shy of the 100 MPs’
votes needed to send the
leadership contest to a vote
of the grassroots party
members – a fate to be
avoided at all costs after
they forfeited the confi-
dence of MPs by installing
Truss – Rishi Sunak will
become the next prime
minister of the UK.
Now such divisions
seem to be affecting the
right of politics too. As we
saw in the 2022 federal
election in Australia, the
right’s traditional sup-
port base is split between
affluent moderates con-
cerned about climate
change, and older social
conservatives concerned
about immigration. This
appears to be happening
in the UK too.
This internal division
can be exploited by the op-
position as we saw with the
fracking vote. On paper,
Sunak should feel secure
with a 71-seat majority in a
650-seat parliament. But
the Conservatives have
lost confidence. The party
is behaving like one that
has only the slimmest of
majorities and is on its
way out. Sunak’s premier-
ship may well be a case of
the band playing on.

eographically, the Indian
Subcontinent consists of
the peninsular part of pre-
sent-dayIndia,southof the
Himalayas, on the Indian
tectonic plate. From a po-
litical perspective, the In-
dian subcontinent consists
of eight countries: India,
Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan,
Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Af-
ghanistan and the Mal-
dives. The people of the
Indian Subcontinent have
shared ethnic, linguistic,
cultural, and historical
ties. Even today these na-
tions bear some marks of
their origins. Both the
terms - ‘South Asia’ and
‘Indian subcontinent’ are
used in an interchangeable
manner. The peace in the
region is marred by unre-
solved territorial disputes
like Kashmir, separatist
and insurgent movements
linked to global outfits, a
broad range of ethnic, reli-
gious conflicts, the prolif-
eration of nuclear technol-
ogy
,climatechangeandthe
ensuing water issues. In-
dia is generally viewed as
an ‘Interfering Big Broth-
er’ by her neighbour.
As the largest country,
India needs to promote re-
gional peace and stability
in order to have a strong
claim to be a major world
player. India’s ability to in-
tervene in countries is lim-
ited by resentment at In-
dia’s paternalism towards
its smaller neighbours. An
assertive surge in Chinese
economic and diplomatic
involvement in the region
has elevated long-linger-
ing tensions with India
and poses a challenge as
the regional economic and
diplomatic heavyweight.
The South Asian Associa-
tion for Regional Coopera-
tion (SAARC) is an eco-
nomic and political region-
al organisation of coun-
tries in South Asia set up
in 1985. It aims to acceler-
ate the process of econom-
ic and social development
in its member states
through increased intra-
regional cooperation but
so far has characterized by
weak institutionalism and
is often constrained in
their effectiveness.
India’s Relations With
Its Neighbours
The relationship with Paki-
stanhasbeencharacterised
by a virtually unbroken re-
cord of sustained hostility
.
The continued Pak support
toterrorismanditsstandon
Kashmir remains a major
irritant between India and
Pakistan.Despitechangeof
government, the anti India
standstillflourishesinPak.
Indo-Bangladesh rela-
tions had become strained
over the Farakka issue, the
Tin Bigha controversy and
illegal Bangladeshi mi-
grants and their alleged
involvement in communal
riots in India. The agree-
ment on sharing of Ganga
waters and the pro Indian
stance of Sheikh Hasina
regimehasdefinitelymade
some positive impact.
Despite increasing Chi-
nese influence the Indo
Nepalese relationship are
likely to see a qualitative
improvement owing closer
economic ties and better
political understanding.
The renewed Mahakali
Treaty and grant of over-
land transit route for its
trade with Bangladesh by
India underlines the posi-
tive shift, but border dis-
pute of Kalapani still re-
mains a major issue.
The renewal of $400-mil-
lion currency swap facility
and helping hand extended
to Sri Lanka facing severe
economiccrisishasbecome
apositivemilestoneinIndo
Sri Lankan relations. The
main irritant in Indo-Sri
Lankan relationship that
stillremainsisissueof kill-
ings of Indian fishermen
by Sri Lankan forces.
The volatile situation in
Afghanistan is of major
concern to India. The fun-
damentalist regime in Af-
ghanistan is an insidious
threattoIndiansecularism
andapotentiallydestabilis-
ing factor in the region.
Defence matters of Bhu-
tan have remained Indian
responsibility but owing
to Indian weak stance dur-
ing Doklam skirmishes
with China, the Bhutan
King has established a
fairly good relationship
with China. India is trying
to regain the lost ground.
Despite Chinese over-
tures, the Maldives has
remained fairly under In-
dian influence. During re-
cent elections a political
party sought votes with
the slogan “Keep India”
out definitely needs to be
watched out.
Indian Options
Create effective and endur-
ingincentivesforourneigh-
bourstoremainsensitiveto
India’s security interests
and emerging as a security
provider for the region.
Lesser Intervention, due
respect of the sovereignty
and use more powerful In-
dian economy to become
an engine of growth of
neighbours.
No physical presence of
a hostile foreign power in
a manner that would ad-
versely impact its security
especially in a case of open
borders.
It is in India’s interest to
promote regional econom-
ic integration, and need to
step up role of SAARC in
regional co-operation, dia-
logue and regional eco-
nomic integration.
Enhance effectiveness
of Bay of Bengal Initiative
for Multi-Sectoral Techni-
cal and Economic Cooper-
ation (BIMSTEC) compris-
ing Bangladesh, Bhutan,
India, Myanmar, Nepal,
Sri Lanka, and Thailand.
India’s needs to further
its positive role in the new-
lyformedTheIndianOcean
Rim Association (IORA)
which is a dynamic inter-
governmentalorganisation
aimed at strengthening re-
gionalcooperationandsus-
tainable development with-
in the Indian Ocean region.
To bring into use its
proximity with the other
countries, India requires
efficient cross-border con-
nectivity both in terms of
infrastructure and proce-
dures to allow the smooth
and seamless transit of
goods and peoples.
The economic and tech-
nological power of India is
a vast and expanding mar-
ket. Even if this market
were opened up fully to
whatever our neighbours
can produce and sell, this
would constitute only a
small fraction of India’s
market but would mean a
great deal for them.
Given its much more de-
veloped land and maritime
transport system, India
should develop its role as
the partner of choice for
trade and transportation.
This will also create strong
inter-dependencies with
our neighbours, thus cre-
ating more sensitivity
among them to our secu-
rity concerns.

Faridabad (ANI):
Launching a scathing
attack on Congress
leader Bhupinder Sin-
gh Hooda, Union Home
Minister Amit Shah on
Thursday said the for-
mer Haryana CM used
to run a “3D” govt with
the nexus of “darbaris,
damad and dealers”.
Addressing the BJP’s
Jan Utthan rally, Shah
said, “I congratulate
Manohar Lal Khattar
for completing 8 glori-
ous years of govern-
ance. When he became
the CM, I was the BJP
chief. When he came to
meet me after the polls,
I asked him who should
be the chief minister.
He told me 15 names ex-
cept his own. Such a
man is governing and
developing Haryana for
the last 8 years. In 8
years, Manohar Lal ji
has done the work of
changing Haryana.”
Shah remembered
late BJP leader and for-
mer Haryana deputy
CM Mangal Sein on his
birth anniversary
.
Attacking previous
Haryana governments,
Shah said, “Recall the
Haryana that existed 8
years ago. When one
govt used to come, there
used to be corruption
and when the other gov-
ernment came, hooli-
ganism increased.
Khattar-led BJP govt
neither allowed corrup-
tion nor hooliganism.”
Bhopal (PTI): Seven
people fell sick after
chlorine gas leaked
from a cylinder at a wa-
ter filtration plant in
Bhopal, bringing back
grim memories of the
1984 gas tragedy in the
Madhya Pradesh capi-
tal. A 900 kg chlorine
cylinder leaked on
Wednesday at the water
treatment plant of the
Bhopal Municipal Cor-
poration at the Idgah
Hills,Shahjanabad’sAs-
sistant Commissioner
of Police Umesh Mishra
said on Thursday
.
Seven people living in
slums near the plant
complained of some
health issues. They
were shifted to hospital.
Locals said after the gas
leak, some people com-
plained of breathing
difficulties, coughing
and vomiting. The snag
has been fixed, he said.
Thousands of people
were killed and more
than five lakh affected
after inhaling a toxic
gas that spewed out
from the now defunct
Union Carbide factory
in Bhopal on the inter-
vening night of Decem-
ber 2 and 3, 1984.
IN THE COURTYARD
New Delhi: The NGT has
refused to entertain a plea
seeking a direction to moni-
tor and test efficiency of a
device to control air pol-
lution. A bench headed by
Justice AK Goel said the Tri-
bunal’s role is to adjudicate
on substantial questions of
environment and not to test
devices of commercial en-
terprises. According to the
applicant, he is an expert on
the subject of control of air
pollution and has invented
a device to control air
pollution. He has accord-
ingly sought a direction to
monitor and test efficiency
of devices of the applicant.
Mumbai: If a married woman is asked to do household
work for family, it cannot be equated to the work of a
maid and would not amount to cruelty, the Aurangabad
bench of Bombay High Court said while quashing a case
lodged by a woman against her husband and his parents
for domestic violence and cruelty. A division bench on
October 21, quashed the First Information Report lodged
against the man and his parents. The woman had alleged
she was was treated properly for a month after marriage,
but thereafter, they began treating her like a maid servant.
New Delhi: Former BJP MP Subramanian Swamy moved
a plea before the Delhi High Court claiming that the
Central Govt had failed to provide adequate security at his
private residence as assured before the court. The appli-
cation has been listed for hearing on Monday. In Septem-
ber the Delhi high court had asked Swamy to vacate the
government accommodation. The matter was mentioned
by the senior advocate Jayant Mehta before the bench
headed by chief justice Satish Chandra Sharma.
New Delhi: The Delhi
High Court on Thursday
refused to pass an interim
order extending tenure of
last presiding officer of
Delhi School Tribunal and
granted time to the govt
to state its stand on a plea
seeking expeditious ap-
pointment to the currently
vacant post. Delhi govt
counsel Santosh Kumar
Tripathi told the court that
the rules for appointment
have been changed and
are pending approval be-
fore the Lt Governor and a
“temporary arrangement”
has been put in place until
a regular selection is done.

Thursday asked why

New Delhi: The Su-
preme Court has criti-
cised the practice of
High Courts to grant
anticipatory bail to ac-
cused in criminal cases
on the ground that no
custodial interrogation
isrequired.Abenchsaid
there is a misconception
that if no case for custo-
dial interrogation is
madeoutbyprosecution
then that alone would be
a good ground to grant
anticipatory bail.
“In many anticipato-
ry bail matters, we have
noticed one common
argument being can-
vassed that no custodial
interrogation is re-
quired and, therefore,
anticipatory bail may
be granted. There ap-
pears to be a serious
misconception of law,”
the bench said.
SC:‘Custodial interrogation not
needed’ not a ground for bail
Surajkund (ANI): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on
Thursday announced to open branches of the National
Investigation Agency (NIA) in all states by 2024 as
part of the Centre’s plan to build an anti-terrorism
network. The Home Minister made the announce-
ment while speaking at the two-day ‘Chintan Shivir’ of
Home Ministers’ of all states here to prepare an action
plan for the implementation of the Centre’s ‘vision
2047’. “Government led by Prime Minister Narendra
Modi has a zero-tolerance policy against terrorism
and NIA and other agencies are being strengthened to
achieve a decisive victory,” Shah said.
Faridabad (PTI): Union HM Amit Shah on Thursday
laid the foundation stone of Haryana Orbital Rail Corri-
dor and inaugurated three other projects here worth a
combined Rs 6,629 crore. He inaugurated the projects
virtually from an event at the Parade Ground. He laid
the foundation stone of Rs 5,618-crore Haryana Or-
bital Rail Corridor project. He inaugurated a rail coach
refurbishment factory worth Rs 590 crore in Sonipat’s

New Delhi: Union Min-
isterof StateDrJitendra
Singh said on Thursday
that National Education
Policy (NEP-2020) aims
at de-linking degree
from education and live-
lihood opportunities.
Addressing the stu-
dents at Krishna Ma-
havidyalaya at
Thakurdwar in Mo-
radabad, Uttar Pradesh,
Dr Jitendra Singh said,
NEP-2020 also supple-
ments Start-Up ecosys-
tem with the promise to
open new career and
entrepreneurship op-
portunities for students
and youth in India.
Dr Singh said, NEP-
2020 introduced by PM
Modi will reorient In-
dia’s Education Policy
as per global bench-
marks. Describing it as
the biggest path-break-
ing reform in India
since independence, the
Minister said, the new
policy is not only pro-
gressive and visionary
but is also in keeping
with the emerging
needs and requirements
of 21st century India.
He said, it gives due pri-
orities to the inherent
talent, knowledge, skill
and aptitude of the stu-
dents, rather than focus-
ing only on degrees.
He said that linking
degrees with education
has taken a heavy toll on
our education system
and society as well and
one of the fall-outs has
been an increasing
number of educated un-
employed. He said, NEP-
2020 is having the provi-
sion of multiple entry/
exit option thus provid-
ing academic flexibility
to the students.
Referring to Skill In-
dia Mission, he urged
students to imbibe mul-
tiple skills to be success-
ful in life as there are
ample number of exam-
ples to show that those
equipped with the latest
skills are doing wonders
in the world today
.
He urged students to
explore livelihood op-
portunities in the Start-
up sector. He said that
only in August this
year, the Uttar Pradesh
government injected Rs
4,000 crore into the
state’s start-up corpus
for employment genera-
tion and economic ac-
tivity. The fresh infu-
sion of capital has been
made to constitute the
maiden ‘UP Innovation
Fund’ that will be man-
dated to provide seed
capital to start-ups.

Will K’taka Cong witness a third
power centre in Kharge faction?
Sharat K Verma
New Delhi: After Mal-
likarjun Kharge be-
came the Congress
President, there may or
may not be any new fac-
tion in the national
politics of the party, but
it is certain that a new
faction will be formed
in Karnataka, which
will be called Kharge
faction. It can also be
called a high command
group. At present there
are two factions in Kar-
nataka i.e. Siddaramai-
ah and DK Shivakumar.
Siddaramaiah has been
the chief minister of
the state but he is not a
traditional Congress
leader. He left the JDS
and joined the Con-
gress and Rahul Gan-
dhi made him the Chief
Minister. Shivakumar,
on the other hand, is
the state president,
troubleshooter of the
Congress and a re-
source-rich leader.
Right now the entire
party is divided be-
tween these two lead-
ers. However, apart
from these, there are
many other big leaders
like Margaret Alva and
Veerappa Moily
.
Kharge is from Kar-
nataka and has now be-
come the national pres-
ident of the party. In
such a situation, the
leaders who are not in
any group have got a
shelter. Keep in mind
that Kharge being the
grassroots leader of
Karnataka, every small
and big leader has di-
rect contact with him.
Therefore, the leaders
of the party can contact
him in Delhi and speak
their mind. This fac-
tion will also be formed
because elections are
going to be held in Kar-
nataka next year and
both the big leaders -
Siddaramaiah and Shi-
vakumar - are busy pre-
paring their list of can-
didates. Any leader
who is not in the list of
these two will remain in
Kharge or high com-
mand faction. So, Kar-
nataka politics is going
to be interesting in the
next few days. This dis-
cussion has also started
among many knowl-
edgeable Congress lead-
ers that Kharge fell
short of becoming CM
thrice, and it could be
that after becoming the
national president, he
may yet again become
CM. Thus if Congress
wins, Kharge may be
the consensus candi-
date instead of Siddara-
maiah and Shivakumar.

CONG DEMANDS WHITE PAPER ON ‘PLIGHT OF KASHMIRI PANDITS’
New Delhi (PTI): The Con-
gress attacked the BJP over
the alleged exodus of Kash-
miri Pandits from south
Kashmir’s Shopian district
and demanded that the
Modi government release
a white paper on the plight
of the minority community

The opposition party also
hit out at the BJP-led

targeted killings of
Kashmiri Pandits
in Jammu and
Kashmir and said
the government
must apolo-
gise for it.
As terrorists carried out a

miri Pandit families left
their village, Choud-
harygund, in Shopian
out of fear and reached
Jammu, ac-
cording to

more and more industries to set up ETPs. The
installation of ETP helps in the disposal of harmful
industrial waste, it also avoids adverse effects on
health of general public due to industrial waste.

came to wish the people
‘Happy Diwali.’
Wherever Speaker
Birla reached, people
thronged to meet him.
During this, women
also tied Raksha sutra

Due to being very
close to the railway sta-

usually crowded with
people coming from
outside. These people
were also shocked to
see Speaker Birla mov-

officials, others
Aishwary Pradhan
Jaipur: Ahead of the
2023-Assembly elec-
tions in Rajasthan, or-
ganisational changes in
the BJP’s State unit are
on the cards.
The State leadership
of BJP may replace 14
District Presidents and
Presidents of several
fronts and cells.
The party sources
said that many of the
District Presidents,
who are preparing to
contest the elections
themselves have of-
fered to leave the post.
The issue has been dis-
cussed with the Party
High Command and the
State leadership.
By the Assembly elec-
tions-2023 and Lok Sab-
ha elections-2024, BJP
wants to prepare such
a team in the State,
which can remain ac-
tive and fulfill the re-
sponsibility of the par-
ty organisation only
.
According to sourc-
es, a list of such lead-
ers and workers is be-
ing prepared, who do
not wish to contest the
Assembly or Lok Sab-
ha elections, have a
strong hold and recog-
nition among the work-
ers and can spare full
time for the party dur-
ing the elections for the
next two years. Prelim-
inary work has also
been done on this.
The BJP State Presi-
dent Dr Satish Poonia
will soon make chang-
es in the organisation
after talking to the
State in-charge Arun
Singh. With this move
in place, many inactive
office bearers will also
be removed.

First India Bureau
Jaipur: Rajasthan High
Court has sought response
from the Chief Secretary,
RERC Secretary, Selection
Board and others in four
weeks in the matter of ap-
pointment of retired IAS
Dr BN Sharma as the
chairman of Electricity
Regulatory Commission.
A division bench of
Chief Justice Pankaj
Mithal  Justice MM Sriv-
astava has sought the re-
ply while hearing a PIL
filed by one Mukul Bhat-
tani, who said in PIL that
in Electricity Regulatory
Commission, 2 members
including the chairman
are appointed. Out of
these, one post of member
is technical, whose quali-
fication is Engineering
degree as well as work ex-
perience in power genera-
tion, transmission and
distribution. On May 17,
2021, State Government
appointed BN Sharma.
CM: I know reality of
hosps as I suffered
from post Covid issues
From Pg 1...
It is also necessary to
ensure quality treat-
ment and providing
better health facili-
ties and full benefits
of all government
schemes to public in
these medical colleg-
es. For this purpose,
CM Gehlot held a
meeting with the
principals of func-
tional and newly
constructed medical
colleges of State for
the first time. This
meeting was also
kept open to the
public through so-
cial media.
During this, the
medical facilities of
the State were re-
viewed as well as dis-
cussions were held
with the principals
of medical colleges
to further improve
the implementation
of health related
schemes.
“We brought the
Right to Health Bill,
but some private peo-
ple protested, after
which this bill was
stopped in the As-
sembly. These pri-
vate hospitals and
medical colleges
earn a lot of money.
These people have
looted, but it cannot
be discounted. Rs 1cr
or 2 cr in PG, do not
know how much
money is spent,” he
said.
On the condition
of govt hospitals, CM
said that the govern-
ment comes with ma-
jor schemes for free
medicine, yet it does
not feel good if it
comes to light that
medicines are to be
brought from outside
the State. “Perhaps I
suffered from post
covid problems so I
know the reality of
hospitals. When I
tour districts, I take
feedback from pa-
tients. There are
complaints of dirty
beds in hospital.” CM
praised cleanliness
in hospitals in MLA
OP Hoodla’s area.
“Get the work done
by surveying hospi-
tals in a month. Don’t
have to wait for hos-
pital offer. Get main-
tenance work done
on priority,” Gehlot
instructed Naveen
Mahajan of PWD.
Health Minister
Parsadi Meena ex-
pressed concern
about the dilapidated
condition of a hospi-
tal in Kota.

FROM PG 1
 But other than estab-
lishing a synergy with
the Young Gandhis,
what other challenges
do you see would befall
Mallikarjun Kharge?
Dr Jagdeesh Chandra:
Challenges abound but in
Indian politics, the biggest
challenge before him is how
to take on or counter the be-
hemothNarendraModiand
Amit Shah. Then there is
the challenge of winning
elections since before 2024,
11 states will witness elec-
tions.Firstlyelectionwould
be held in Kharge’s home
state Karnataka, then in
2023 the three states of Ra-
jasthan, MP and Chat-
tishgarh would elect
governments, im-
mediatelyHimachal
and Gujarat will un-
dergo election
in this year.
All these are
political chal-
lenges, which
honestly no one expects
Kharge to do miracles in.
Thesearethechallengesbut
he is not concerned or con-
nected with it. If Congress
doesnotdowellinHimachal
and Gujarat election, then
perhaps no one would say
that this loss is on Kharge’s
leadership. Secondly
, the
challenge within the party
is that now workers have
started feeling a divide in
the party between North
andSouth.Workersfeelthat
everything has been given
to leaders of the south. Now
look at their handling of
events. Bhai Dooj was on
26th and that very day eve-
ryone was called for cover-
age as the new President
would formally take over.
Who all would come to wit-
ness this event and moreo-
ver, will people at homes
across the North India get
time to see this unfold? Had
itbeenPongalorotherfesti-
val, this formal take over
would not have happened.
So basically
, from day one, a
trust deficit has occurred in
their leadership that every-
thing has been given to
South and North has been
differentiated against. So
this is another challenge to
counter. Moreover, he will
also have to sort the gap be-
tween the old guards and
the young brigade of Con-
gress. Although the gap has
lessened and issues have
been sorted, but still some
areas on concern remain.
The formation of commit-
teesandboardsinpartyhas
tobedone,butheappearsto
be relaxed and I don’t think
he is worried to much.
 It is said that Rahul
Gandhi wanted the elec-
tion process to be devoid
of any intervention and
held in a free and fair
manner. But word is
that Priyanka Gandhi
called up various lead-
ers and asked for votes
in Kharge’s favour. How
true is that?
It sometimes seem that Pri-
yanka Gandhi is the ‘real
boss’ whether it is anything
to do worth Rajasthan or
any other state. She han-
dles issues, has a different
thoughtprocessandmoreo-
ver, she is practical while
Rahul is more of a rule
book leader. It is my firm
belief that Rahul Gandhi
must have surely thought
that the election should be
free, fair and independent,
but among the loyalists
only
. He may or may not
want Shashi Tharoor to
come to helm, nothing can
besaidforcertainaboutRa-
hul Gandhi. So, he wanted
free elections, but that is
not what happened. If you
try to find out, you will
learn that Priyanka defi-
nitely called up leaders and
calls were made to leaders
from state PCC to vote in
Kharge’s favour, which ba-
sically beats the sentiment
of free and fair elec-
tions. As such a gap
between the votes
amassed by Kharge
and Tharoor is so
great that this
sentence has
noimportance.
Shashi Tha-
roor was hard-
ly a candidate to challenge
Kharge, but the situation
could have been different or
tough had Digvijaya Singh
been at helm. So by and
large, it was fair but there
were exceptions has people
tried to influence the out-
come at the level of Priyan-
ka Gandhi.
 Rahul is a MP from
Kerala’s Wayanad, KC
Venugopal, the Organi-
sational General Secre-
tary, too is from Kerala
and now the new Presi-
dent is from South Indi-
an state of Karnataka.
Is it a well thought out
strategy to give impetus
and focus on South India
or it is a coincidence?
No, this is merely a coinci-
dence and not part of any
strategy
. Rahul Gandhi
thought he would surely
win from Kerala so he went
there. KC has been a long
time standard bearer for
him. Ashok Gehlot denied
becoming present and if he
hadbecomethePartyChief,
then the President would
have been from North. It
was because of his denial
that situation developed
and Kharge’s name came in
front and incidentally he is
from South. So, this is
merely a coincidence. Al-
though this coincidence is
hurting Congress, however,
that is a separate issue. Ba-
sically
, Congress is a North
Indian political party, but
over time, it has gained
more prominence in South-
ern states.
 Rahul has started from
Kerala and is still in
Karnataka although so
much time has passed.
Amid this, Kharge be-
comes the Party Chief.
Do you think, this is a
part of Congress think
tank’s strategy?
Well, the party is working
on promoting the South In-
dian states and to strength-
enitsbasethere.Theythink
thatthiswouldbebeneficial
for them since there are 52
eats in more than half are
from South India. So, this is
their strategy that they
would first gain some mo-
mentum and popularity in
southandthenenterNorth-
ern states. So, this is a fact
that the party would focus
more on South and later en-
ter North and as such they
have less hopes from North
primarily because of Nar-
endraModiandAmitShah.
 It seems that BJP has
taken a vow of silence
on Kharge’s elevation as
Party President. What
does this entail?
It could be part of their
strategy
. Normally, they do
not do this, but it could be
a strategic move. But one
thing is there. PM Modi
showed large- heartedness.
He called up Kharge and
congratulated him. So, he
behaved as a ‘Statesman’
and he is being praised eve-
rywhere for it, in Congress
too. It is a fact that BJP did
not engage in a large scale
attack on this develop-
ment, rather PM called up
and spoke to Kharge con-
veying his best wishes.
 Kharge was asked
about his take on Shashi
Tharoor contesting
against him and he said
that the party and na-
tion would be strength-
ened through this elec-
tion. Is it really so?
Kharge is a decent and
simplified individual. He
knows its the same party,
same family
. So, its alright
that he has given this state-
ment for media’s consump-
tion and for this, he should
be commended.
 What are the similar-
ities and differences
between Kharge and
Tharoor’s personal-
ities?
See, the similarity
is that both are well
e x p e r i e n c e d .
Kharge is 80
yearsold,Tha-
roor is 62.
Both have
been Cen-
tral Ministers, both have
had good connect with gen-
eral public. Kharge was in
politics, while Tharoor was
in the Foreign Services and
UN for almost three dec-
ades. Speaking of differ-
ences, Kharge is a Gandhi-
an leader, while Tharoor is
the new age leader. Tha-
roor’s look is inspired with
today’s fashion, while
Kharge’s is of the age gone
by
. Kharge is a little senior
to him but basically there is
no comparison between the
two, but broadly speaking
both are senior, been for-
mer ministers and are well
experienced. But the only
difference is that Tharoor
is a ‘man of change’ and
Kharge would maintain
‘statue-quo.’
 Tharoor garnered
nearly a thousand
votes. Is it a picture of
the internal democra-
cy of the party or a de-
cline in Gandhi family’s
popularity within party,
considering that Kharge
was the informal choice
of Gandhi family?
On face value, it may be
termed as internal party
politics, but in reality, this
is a warning bell. Without
any support or anything,
he was voted for, by 1,072
voters, which is more than
the combined vote share of
the previous two leaders.
So this is a new start.
Moreover, there was
heightened monitoring
and vigilance by Priyanka
Gandhi to ensure that no
voter goes to the other side.
And those who sided with
Tharoor, on them an en-
quiry was called and they
literally had to give an
apology
. Even under an in-
direct control, against the
theory of free and fair
polls, 1,072 individuals
went to the other camp. So
this is a beginning. People
thought nothing is going to
happen as such even
Shashi Tharoor hasn’t
been punished for his past
acts and is still working in
the party
. So, this is a start
to end the Gandhis’ hold
over Congress. Tharoor’s
agenda was different and
he said that he is a repre-
sentative of change. So
when there is a vision doc-
ument for change, it is al-
ways against the establish-
ment. So, this is the start
of raising voice against the
establishment in Congress.
Like in movies, one man
stands against the mafia
and either the people back
that man or the mafia re-
moves the person. Simi-
larly, Tharoor garnering
1,072 votes against Gan-
dhi family’s nominee is a
major development in it-
self. I read in some newspa-
per where the
writer sus-
pected that it might come
to this that the entire 8,000
votes roll to the other side.
So, it is a word of caution
for Gandhis. And if there
is internal democracy in
the party, the Sonia, Rahul
and everyone deserves a
vote of thanks.
 But there surely is a
dissatisfied camp of
G-23. Was Tharoor a
candidate of that camp?
But an even more impor-
tant question is who
backed him?
He follows his own mind. I
am sure he wasn’t a candi-
date of G-23. I know that
when Gehlot denied, every-
one in G-23 thought that
Tharoor is contesting and
hasn’t consulted anyone.
So, they too wanted that Ge-
hlot should contest and
thus, they kept aside their
differences also and sup-
ported Gehlot initially.
Moreover, Hooda, Manish
Tewari and others said that
theycannotcontestagainst
Gehlot due to their person-
al relations with him, so no
candidate was left. So, his
contesting the election was
incidental and he was not a
candidate of G-23.
 Why didn’t Kamal
Nath or DK Shivaku-
mar contest the Presi-
dential election?
The same reason applies
here too. Since Ashok Ge-
hlot was contesting, so
these and other leaders did
not think of standing for
the election, but when Ge-
hlot declined at the elev-
enth hour, then the groups
started taking action. It is
said for Kamal Nath that
he was given this offer
once in the not so distant
past, and perhaps the high
command did not wanted
to disturb Rajasthan at
that time. Nath also, infor-
mally told the high com-
mand, as to how will he
handle three bosses. More-
over he also reportedly
said that he feels at home
in Bhopal. The point is no
one was ready to let go of
the chair of the Chief Min-
ister and in Rajasthan, the
situation became such that
Gehlot himself backed out.
Had the Rajasthan crisis
not occurred, it would
have been Gehlot as Con-
gress President. Similarly,
Shivakumar is happy and
content in Karnataka. So,
all leaders are happy and
satisfied in their con-
cerned state capital and no
one wants to come to Cen-
tre. Now you can imagine
that the Congress’ honour
is at stake since none of
your own leader wants to
come to the centre, leaving
the state.
Dr Jagdeesh Chandra, CEO and Editor-in-Chief, Bharat24-Vision of New India and First India; CMD, First
India News takes a decisive look at Congress’ ‘self proclaimed free and fair’ presidential elections, how Tharoor’s
challenge highlights the underlying problem of faith in Gandhi leadership among Congmen, how Kharge has a
mountain of challenges before him apart from managing the ‘Young Gandhis’, and if he will be able to revive
Congress in southern states from where the party has maximum seats at present. Excerpts... (Part-II)

  • 2. First India Bureau Jaipur: Ever since the construction of the new building of the Ra- jasthan Legislative As- sembly, all the MLAs have never sat together here. Referring to this, Congress lead- er and former MLA from Nagaur Habibur Rahman has said that this is because of the presence of a spirit in the assembly build- ing. Rahman has de- manded that prayers be conducted to ward off the spirit. He said, “There is a spirit in the assembly building, who feels that injustice has been done to him. That is why all the 200 MLAs could never sit togetherhere.Measures should be taken to paci- fy the spirit.” The former MLA said that when Harishankar Bhabhada was speaker intheoldassembly ,then a delegation visited to build this new building. I was also in it. “The munici- pal corporation used to throw gar- bage on one side of this assembly land. On one side was the crematorium. On one hand is children’s cem- etery and on other side people used to cultivate. There was also a well.” He further said that where the assembly building stands, people used to do agriculture. “At the time when the land was acquired, the farmers would have been promised compen- sation but they have not got it to date. Many have died without compensa- tion. There is something here,” he said. First India Bureau Jaipur: The National Human Rights Commis- sion (NHRC) has taken action taking cogni- zance of the horse-trad- ing case of girls in Ra- jasthan.

Ltd. Who is Rishi Sunak, the new UK prime minister? hen Rishi Su- nak was elected by Conserva- tive MPs as their new lead- er and hence prime minis- ter of the United Kingdom, theBritishnationbreathed a sigh of relief: thank God it wasn’t Boris Johnson. Had Johnson been re-elect- ed leader it would have had serious consequences, not just for the Conserva- tives, but in the real world too. Only the most obtuse political observer could have failed to see that the optics of cutting short your Caribbean holiday to try to resolve a cost of liv- ing crisis was not good politics. It sounds hard to believe, but this was not obvious to everyone. Johnson garnered pub- lic support from some of the Brexiteer old guard like Jacob Rees-Mogg and in the pro-Boris media. But in characteristic fash- ion, Johnson exaggerated his chances. This latest act of self-promotion back- fired and he withdrew from the leadership race on Sunday (regretably having missed half his holiday). Nevertheless, the fact that many Conserva- tives seriously thought a chaotic government could be brought under control by someone known for chaotic management, shows how deep the ideo- logical divisions within the party have become. With the third contend- er, Penny Mordaunt, fall- ing just shy of the 100 MPs’ votes needed to send the leadership contest to a vote of the grassroots party members – a fate to be avoided at all costs after they forfeited the confi- dence of MPs by installing Truss – Rishi Sunak will become the next prime minister of the UK. Now such divisions seem to be affecting the right of politics too. As we saw in the 2022 federal election in Australia, the right’s traditional sup- port base is split between affluent moderates con- cerned about climate change, and older social conservatives concerned about immigration. This appears to be happening in the UK too. This internal division can be exploited by the op- position as we saw with the fracking vote. On paper, Sunak should feel secure with a 71-seat majority in a 650-seat parliament. But the Conservatives have lost confidence. The party is behaving like one that has only the slimmest of majorities and is on its way out. Sunak’s premier- ship may well be a case of the band playing on.

Editor-In-Chief: Dr Jagdeesh Chandra Editor: Anita Hada Sangwan responsible for selection of news under the PRB Act eographically, the Indian Subcontinent consists of the peninsular part of pre- sent-dayIndia,southof the Himalayas, on the Indian tectonic plate. From a po- litical perspective, the In- dian subcontinent consists of eight countries: India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Af- ghanistan and the Mal- dives. The people of the Indian Subcontinent have shared ethnic, linguistic, cultural, and historical ties. Even today these na- tions bear some marks of their origins. Both the terms - ‘South Asia’ and ‘Indian subcontinent’ are used in an interchangeable manner. The peace in the region is marred by unre- solved territorial disputes like Kashmir, separatist and insurgent movements linked to global outfits, a broad range of ethnic, reli- gious conflicts, the prolif- eration of nuclear technol- ogy ,climatechangeandthe ensuing water issues. In- dia is generally viewed as an ‘Interfering Big Broth- er’ by her neighbour. As the largest country, India needs to promote re- gional peace and stability in order to have a strong claim to be a major world player. India’s ability to in- tervene in countries is lim- ited by resentment at In- dia’s paternalism towards its smaller neighbours. An assertive surge in Chinese economic and diplomatic involvement in the region has elevated long-linger- ing tensions with India and poses a challenge as the regional economic and diplomatic heavyweight. The South Asian Associa- tion for Regional Coopera- tion (SAARC) is an eco- nomic and political region- al organisation of coun- tries in South Asia set up in 1985. It aims to acceler- ate the process of econom- ic and social development in its member states through increased intra- regional cooperation but so far has characterized by weak institutionalism and is often constrained in their effectiveness. India’s Relations With Its Neighbours The relationship with Paki- stanhasbeencharacterised by a virtually unbroken re- cord of sustained hostility . The continued Pak support toterrorismanditsstandon Kashmir remains a major irritant between India and Pakistan.Despitechangeof government, the anti India standstillflourishesinPak. Indo-Bangladesh rela- tions had become strained over the Farakka issue, the Tin Bigha controversy and illegal Bangladeshi mi- grants and their alleged involvement in communal riots in India. The agree- ment on sharing of Ganga waters and the pro Indian stance of Sheikh Hasina regimehasdefinitelymade some positive impact. Despite increasing Chi- nese influence the Indo Nepalese relationship are likely to see a qualitative improvement owing closer economic ties and better political understanding. The renewed Mahakali Treaty and grant of over- land transit route for its trade with Bangladesh by India underlines the posi- tive shift, but border dis- pute of Kalapani still re- mains a major issue. The renewal of $400-mil- lion currency swap facility and helping hand extended to Sri Lanka facing severe economiccrisishasbecome apositivemilestoneinIndo Sri Lankan relations. The main irritant in Indo-Sri Lankan relationship that stillremainsisissueof kill- ings of Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan forces. The volatile situation in Afghanistan is of major concern to India. The fun- damentalist regime in Af- ghanistan is an insidious threattoIndiansecularism andapotentiallydestabilis- ing factor in the region. Defence matters of Bhu- tan have remained Indian responsibility but owing to Indian weak stance dur- ing Doklam skirmishes with China, the Bhutan King has established a fairly good relationship with China. India is trying to regain the lost ground. Despite Chinese over- tures, the Maldives has remained fairly under In- dian influence. During re- cent elections a political party sought votes with the slogan “Keep India” out definitely needs to be watched out. Indian Options Create effective and endur- ingincentivesforourneigh- bourstoremainsensitiveto India’s security interests and emerging as a security provider for the region. Lesser Intervention, due respect of the sovereignty and use more powerful In- dian economy to become an engine of growth of neighbours. No physical presence of a hostile foreign power in a manner that would ad- versely impact its security especially in a case of open borders. It is in India’s interest to promote regional econom- ic integration, and need to step up role of SAARC in regional co-operation, dia- logue and regional eco- nomic integration. Enhance effectiveness of Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Techni- cal and Economic Cooper- ation (BIMSTEC) compris- ing Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. India’s needs to further its positive role in the new- lyformedTheIndianOcean Rim Association (IORA) which is a dynamic inter- governmentalorganisation aimed at strengthening re- gionalcooperationandsus- tainable development with- in the Indian Ocean region. To bring into use its proximity with the other countries, India requires efficient cross-border con- nectivity both in terms of infrastructure and proce- dures to allow the smooth and seamless transit of goods and peoples. The economic and tech- nological power of India is a vast and expanding mar- ket. Even if this market were opened up fully to whatever our neighbours can produce and sell, this would constitute only a small fraction of India’s market but would mean a great deal for them. Given its much more de- veloped land and maritime transport system, India should develop its role as the partner of choice for trade and transportation. This will also create strong inter-dependencies with our neighbours, thus cre- ating more sensitivity among them to our secu- rity concerns.

Addressing the BJP’s Jan Utthan rally, Shah said, “I congratulate Manohar Lal Khattar for completing 8 glori- ous years of govern- ance. When he became the CM, I was the BJP chief. When he came to meet me after the polls, I asked him who should be the chief minister. He told me 15 names ex- cept his own. Such a man is governing and developing Haryana for the last 8 years. In 8 years, Manohar Lal ji has done the work of changing Haryana.” Shah remembered late BJP leader and for- mer Haryana deputy CM Mangal Sein on his birth anniversary . Attacking previous Haryana governments, Shah said, “Recall the Haryana that existed 8 years ago. When one govt used to come, there used to be corruption and when the other gov- ernment came, hooli- ganism increased. Khattar-led BJP govt neither allowed corrup- tion nor hooliganism.” Bhopal (PTI): Seven people fell sick after chlorine gas leaked from a cylinder at a wa- ter filtration plant in Bhopal, bringing back grim memories of the 1984 gas tragedy in the Madhya Pradesh capi- tal.

Addressing the stu- dents at Krishna Ma- havidyalaya at Thakurdwar in Mo- radabad, Uttar Pradesh, Dr Jitendra Singh said, NEP-2020 also supple- ments Start-Up ecosys- tem with the promise to open new career and entrepreneurship op- portunities for students and youth in India. Dr Singh said, NEP- 2020 introduced by PM Modi will reorient In- dia’s Education Policy as per global bench- marks. Describing it as the biggest path-break- ing reform in India since independence, the Minister said, the new policy is not only pro- gressive and visionary but is also in keeping with the emerging needs and requirements of 21st century India. He said, it gives due pri- orities to the inherent talent, knowledge, skill and aptitude of the stu- dents, rather than focus- ing only on degrees. He said that linking degrees with education has taken a heavy toll on our education system and society as well and one of the fall-outs has been an increasing number of educated un- employed. He said, NEP- 2020 is having the provi- sion of multiple entry/ exit option thus provid- ing academic flexibility to the students. Referring to Skill In- dia Mission, he urged students to imbibe mul- tiple skills to be success- ful in life as there are ample number of exam- ples to show that those equipped with the latest skills are doing wonders in the world today . He urged students to explore livelihood op- portunities in the Start- up sector. He said that only in August this year, the Uttar Pradesh government injected Rs 4,000 crore into the state’s start-up corpus for employment genera- tion and economic ac- tivity.

Sharat K Verma New Delhi: After Mal- likarjun Kharge be- came the Congress President, there may or may not be any new fac- tion in the national politics of the party, but it is certain that a new faction will be formed in Karnataka, which will be called Kharge faction. It can also be called a high command group. At present there are two factions in Kar- nataka i.e. Siddaramai- ah and DK Shivakumar. Siddaramaiah has been the chief minister of the state but he is not a traditional Congress leader. He left the JDS and joined the Con- gress and Rahul Gan- dhi made him the Chief Minister. Shivakumar, on the other hand, is the state president, troubleshooter of the Congress and a re- source-rich leader. Right now the entire party is divided be- tween these two lead- ers. However, apart from these, there are many other big leaders like Margaret Alva and Veerappa Moily . Kharge is from Kar- nataka and has now be- come the national pres- ident of the party. In such a situation, the leaders who are not in any group have got a shelter. Keep in mind that Kharge being the grassroots leader of Karnataka, every small and big leader has di- rect contact with him. Therefore, the leaders of the party can contact him in Delhi and speak their mind. This fac- tion will also be formed because elections are going to be held in Kar- nataka next year and both the big leaders - Siddaramaiah and Shi- vakumar - are busy pre- paring their list of can- didates. Any leader who is not in the list of these two will remain in Kharge or high com- mand faction. So, Kar- nataka politics is going to be interesting in the next few days. This dis- cussion has also started among many knowl- edgeable Congress lead- ers that Kharge fell short of becoming CM thrice, and it could be that after becoming the national president, he may yet again become CM. Thus if Congress wins, Kharge may be the consensus candi- date instead of Siddara- maiah and Shivakumar. Cong Prez Mallikarjun Kharge CONG DEMANDS WHITE PAPER ON ‘PLIGHT OF KASHMIRI PANDITS’ New Delhi (PTI): The Con- gress attacked the BJP over the alleged exodus of Kash- miri Pandits from south Kashmir’s Shopian district and demanded that the Modi government release a white paper on the plight of the minority community during its eight-year rule.

Govind Singh Dotasra 2023Assemblypolls:OrgchangesinBJPState Unitoncards Appt of Retd IAS: Raj HC seeks reply from RERC officials, others Aishwary Pradhan Jaipur: Ahead of the 2023-Assembly elec- tions in Rajasthan, or- ganisational changes in the BJP’s State unit are on the cards. The State leadership of BJP may replace 14 District Presidents and Presidents of several fronts and cells. The party sources said that many of the District Presidents, who are preparing to contest the elections themselves have of- fered to leave the post. The issue has been dis- cussed with the Party High Command and the State leadership. By the Assembly elec- tions-2023 and Lok Sab- ha elections-2024, BJP wants to prepare such a team in the State, which can remain ac- tive and fulfill the re- sponsibility of the par- ty organisation only . According to sourc- es, a list of such lead- ers and workers is be- ing prepared, who do not wish to contest the Assembly or Lok Sab- ha elections, have a strong hold and recog- nition among the work- ers and can spare full time for the party dur- ing the elections for the next two years. Prelim- inary work has also been done on this. The BJP State Presi- dent Dr Satish Poonia will soon make chang- es in the organisation after talking to the State in-charge Arun Singh. With this move in place, many inactive office bearers will also be removed. GEHLOT ON...

It is also necessary to ensure quality treat- ment and providing better health facili- ties and full benefits of all government schemes to public in these medical colleg- es. For this purpose, CM Gehlot held a meeting with the principals of func- tional and newly constructed medical colleges of State for the first time. This meeting was also kept open to the public through so- cial media. During this, the medical facilities of the State were re- viewed as well as dis- cussions were held with the principals of medical colleges to further improve the implementation of health related schemes. “We brought the Right to Health Bill, but some private peo- ple protested, after which this bill was stopped in the As- sembly. These pri- vate hospitals and medical colleges earn a lot of money. These people have looted, but it cannot be discounted. Rs 1cr or 2 cr in PG, do not know how much money is spent,” he said. On the condition of govt hospitals, CM said that the govern- ment comes with ma- jor schemes for free medicine, yet it does not feel good if it comes to light that medicines are to be brought from outside the State. “Perhaps I suffered from post covid problems so I know the reality of hospitals. When I tour districts, I take feedback from pa- tients. There are complaints of dirty beds in hospital.” CM praised cleanliness in hospitals in MLA OP Hoodla’s area. “Get the work done by surveying hospi- tals in a month. Don’t have to wait for hos- pital offer. Get main- tenance work done on priority,” Gehlot instructed Naveen Mahajan of PWD.

  • 9.  But other than estab- lishing a synergy with the Young Gandhis, what other challenges do you see would befall Mallikarjun Kharge? Dr Jagdeesh Chandra: Challenges abound but in Indian politics, the biggest challenge before him is how to take on or counter the be- hemothNarendraModiand Amit Shah. Then there is the challenge of winning elections since before 2024, 11 states will witness elec- tions.Firstlyelectionwould be held in Kharge’s home state Karnataka, then in 2023 the three states of Ra- jasthan, MP and Chat- tishgarh would elect governments, im- mediatelyHimachal and Gujarat will un- dergo election in this year. All these are political chal- lenges, which honestly no one expects Kharge to do miracles in. Thesearethechallengesbut he is not concerned or con- nected with it. If Congress doesnotdowellinHimachal and Gujarat election, then perhaps no one would say that this loss is on Kharge’s leadership. Secondly , the challenge within the party is that now workers have started feeling a divide in the party between North andSouth.Workersfeelthat everything has been given to leaders of the south. Now look at their handling of events. Bhai Dooj was on 26th and that very day eve- ryone was called for cover- age as the new President would formally take over. Who all would come to wit- ness this event and moreo- ver, will people at homes across the North India get time to see this unfold? Had itbeenPongalorotherfesti- val, this formal take over would not have happened. So basically , from day one, a trust deficit has occurred in their leadership that every- thing has been given to South and North has been differentiated against. So this is another challenge to counter. Moreover, he will also have to sort the gap be- tween the old guards and the young brigade of Con- gress. Although the gap has lessened and issues have been sorted, but still some areas on concern remain. The formation of commit- teesandboardsinpartyhas tobedone,butheappearsto be relaxed and I don’t think he is worried to much.  It is said that Rahul Gandhi wanted the elec- tion process to be devoid of any intervention and held in a free and fair manner. But word is that Priyanka Gandhi called up various lead- ers and asked for votes in Kharge’s favour. How true is that? It sometimes seem that Pri- yanka Gandhi is the ‘real boss’ whether it is anything to do worth Rajasthan or any other state. She han- dles issues, has a different thoughtprocessandmoreo- ver, she is practical while Rahul is more of a rule book leader. It is my firm belief that Rahul Gandhi must have surely thought that the election should be free, fair and independent, but among the loyalists only . He may or may not want Shashi Tharoor to come to helm, nothing can besaidforcertainaboutRa- hul Gandhi. So, he wanted free elections, but that is not what happened. If you try to find out, you will learn that Priyanka defi- nitely called up leaders and calls were made to leaders from state PCC to vote in Kharge’s favour, which ba- sically beats the sentiment of free and fair elec- tions. As such a gap between the votes amassed by Kharge and Tharoor is so great that this sentence has noimportance. Shashi Tha- roor was hard- ly a candidate to challenge Kharge, but the situation could have been different or tough had Digvijaya Singh been at helm. So by and large, it was fair but there were exceptions has people tried to influence the out- come at the level of Priyan- ka Gandhi.  Rahul is a MP from Kerala’s Wayanad, KC Venugopal, the Organi- sational General Secre- tary, too is from Kerala and now the new Presi- dent is from South Indi- an state of Karnataka. Is it a well thought out strategy to give impetus and focus on South India or it is a coincidence? No, this is merely a coinci- dence and not part of any strategy . Rahul Gandhi thought he would surely win from Kerala so he went there. KC has been a long time standard bearer for him. Ashok Gehlot denied becoming present and if he hadbecomethePartyChief, then the President would have been from North. It was because of his denial that situation developed and Kharge’s name came in front and incidentally he is from South. So, this is merely a coincidence. Al- though this coincidence is hurting Congress, however, that is a separate issue. Ba- sically , Congress is a North Indian political party, but over time, it has gained more prominence in South- ern states.  Rahul has started from Kerala and is still in Karnataka although so much time has passed. Amid this, Kharge be- comes the Party Chief. Do you think, this is a part of Congress think tank’s strategy? Well, the party is working on promoting the South In- dian states and to strength- enitsbasethere.Theythink thatthiswouldbebeneficial for them since there are 52 eats in more than half are from South India. So, this is their strategy that they would first gain some mo- mentum and popularity in southandthenenterNorth- ern states. So, this is a fact that the party would focus more on South and later en- ter North and as such they have less hopes from North primarily because of Nar- endraModiandAmitShah.  It seems that BJP has taken a vow of silence on Kharge’s elevation as Party President. What does this entail? It could be part of their strategy . Normally, they do not do this, but it could be a strategic move. But one thing is there. PM Modi showed large- heartedness. He called up Kharge and congratulated him. So, he behaved as a ‘Statesman’ and he is being praised eve- rywhere for it, in Congress too. It is a fact that BJP did not engage in a large scale attack on this develop- ment, rather PM called up and spoke to Kharge con- veying his best wishes.  Kharge was asked about his take on Shashi Tharoor contesting against him and he said that the party and na- tion would be strength- ened through this elec- tion. Is it really so? Kharge is a decent and simplified individual. He knows its the same party, same family . So, its alright that he has given this state- ment for media’s consump- tion and for this, he should be commended.  What are the similar- ities and differences between Kharge and Tharoor’s personal- ities? See, the similarity is that both are well e x p e r i e n c e d . Kharge is 80 yearsold,Tha- roor is 62. Both have been Cen- tral Ministers, both have had good connect with gen- eral public. Kharge was in politics, while Tharoor was in the Foreign Services and UN for almost three dec- ades. Speaking of differ- ences, Kharge is a Gandhi- an leader, while Tharoor is the new age leader. Tha- roor’s look is inspired with today’s fashion, while Kharge’s is of the age gone by . Kharge is a little senior to him but basically there is no comparison between the two, but broadly speaking both are senior, been for- mer ministers and are well experienced. But the only difference is that Tharoor is a ‘man of change’ and Kharge would maintain ‘statue-quo.’  Tharoor garnered nearly a thousand votes. Is it a picture of the internal democra- cy of the party or a de- cline in Gandhi family’s popularity within party, considering that Kharge was the informal choice of Gandhi family? On face value, it may be termed as internal party politics, but in reality, this is a warning bell. Without any support or anything, he was voted for, by 1,072 voters, which is more than the combined vote share of the previous two leaders. So this is a new start. Moreover, there was heightened monitoring and vigilance by Priyanka Gandhi to ensure that no voter goes to the other side. And those who sided with Tharoor, on them an en- quiry was called and they literally had to give an apology . Even under an in- direct control, against the theory of free and fair polls, 1,072 individuals went to the other camp. So this is a beginning. People thought nothing is going to happen as such even Shashi Tharoor hasn’t been punished for his past acts and is still working in the party . So, this is a start to end the Gandhis’ hold over Congress. Tharoor’s agenda was different and he said that he is a repre- sentative of change. So when there is a vision doc- ument for change, it is al- ways against the establish- ment. So, this is the start of raising voice against the establishment in Congress. Like in movies, one man stands against the mafia and either the people back that man or the mafia re- moves the person. Simi- larly, Tharoor garnering 1,072 votes against Gan- dhi family’s nominee is a major development in it- self. I read in some newspa- per where the writer sus- pected that it might come to this that the entire 8,000 votes roll to the other side. So, it is a word of caution for Gandhis. And if there is internal democracy in the party, the Sonia, Rahul and everyone deserves a vote of thanks.  But there surely is a dissatisfied camp of G-23. Was Tharoor a candidate of that camp? But an even more impor- tant question is who backed him? He follows his own mind. I am sure he wasn’t a candi- date of G-23. I know that when Gehlot denied, every- one in G-23 thought that Tharoor is contesting and hasn’t consulted anyone. So, they too wanted that Ge- hlot should contest and thus, they kept aside their differences also and sup- ported Gehlot initially. Moreover, Hooda, Manish Tewari and others said that theycannotcontestagainst Gehlot due to their person- al relations with him, so no candidate was left. So, his contesting the election was incidental and he was not a candidate of G-23.  Why didn’t Kamal Nath or DK Shivaku- mar contest the Presi- dential election? The same reason applies here too. Since Ashok Ge- hlot was contesting, so these and other leaders did not think of standing for the election, but when Ge- hlot declined at the elev- enth hour, then the groups started taking action. It is said for Kamal Nath that he was given this offer once in the not so distant past, and perhaps the high command did not wanted to disturb Rajasthan at that time. Nath also, infor- mally told the high com- mand, as to how will he handle three bosses. More- over he also reportedly said that he feels at home in Bhopal. The point is no one was ready to let go of the chair of the Chief Min- ister and in Rajasthan, the situation became such that Gehlot himself backed out. Had the Rajasthan crisis not occurred, it would have been Gehlot as Con- gress President. Similarly, Shivakumar is happy and content in Karnataka. So, all leaders are happy and satisfied in their con- cerned state capital and no one wants to come to Cen- tre. Now you can imagine that the Congress’ honour is at stake since none of your own leader wants to come to the centre, leaving the state. Dr Jagdeesh Chandra, CEO and Editor-in-Chief, Bharat24-Vision of New India and First India; CMD, First India News takes a decisive look at Congress’ ‘self proclaimed free and fair’ presidential elections, how Tharoor’s challenge highlights the underlying problem of faith in Gandhi leadership among Congmen, how Kharge has a mountain of challenges before him apart from managing the ‘Young Gandhis’, and if he will be able to revive Congress in southern states from where the party has maximum seats at present.
