Speaking of creativity Rahul’s filmy way of criticising the Goods and Services Tax (GST) created quite the stir Early in November Rahul had said that he would not rest till the five-slab "Gabbar Singh Tax" was converted into the "Goods and Services Tax" with an 18 percent cap "With five slabs it is the Gabbar Singh Tax but with one tax it is the GST Neither Gujarat nor India needs the Gabbar Singh Tax The Congress had clearly told the BJP that there should be one tax with an 18-per cent cap and a simple tax (at that)" Gandhi had said Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi (left) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi Agencies "This Gabbar Singh Tax is looting the small people of this country This Gabbar Singh Tax is only aimed at breaking the back of the small and medium scale industries of Gujarat and (the rest of) the country" he had added Modi retaliated to this remark by saying that a recently emerged "economist" was propagating a "grand stupid thought" by suggesting that GST rate be capped at 18 percent Hardik Patel’s response to the ‘sex CD’ issue Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel came up with a befitting reply to a CD which had video clips allegedly showing his sexual escapades In November he had said that the people of Gujarat want to see what the BJP has done in 23 years rather than the video of a 23-year-old youth ‘Aurangzeb raj’ During an election rally in Gujarat’s Valsad Modi had called Congress’ process of electing its party president ‘Aurangzeb raj’ "Mani Shankar Aiyar said ‘did elections happen during Mughal rule After Jehangir Shahjahan came was any election held After Shahjahan it was understood Aurangzeb will be the leader’ So Congress accepts it is a family party We don’t want this Aurangzeb rule" ANI had quoted Modi as saying The ‘real’ Hindutva party Perhaps taking inspiration from The Real Slim Shady by Eminem Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday found a unique way to dismiss Rahul’s temple visits He had said that BJP was the original Hindutva party and Congress was just a "clone" "We (BJP) are linked to Hinduism if people imitate us then what can we do But the basic principle is if the original is available why would people go for a clone" Jaitley had said while replying to questions about Gandhi’s temple visits Congress’ ‘chaiwala’ barb Showing that it had learnt nothing from Sonia Gandhi’s ‘maut ka saudagar’ remark against Modi Congress shot itself in the foot when the party’s youth wing’s online magazine Yuva Desh tweeted out a meme mocking Modi’s past as a tea-seller Congress’ online magazine tweets derogatory meme attacking PM Modi deletes later Read @ANI story | https://tco/4uBvxWHfBM pictwittercom/JhH82acg5S — ANI Digital (@ani_digital) November 21 2017 The magazine later withdrew the tweet with the meme but the damage was already done BJP’s national spokesperson Sambit Patra recalled the past ‘maut ka saudagar’ jibe and warned the Congress of electoral consequences of abusing the prime minister In fact BJP leaders — including Amit Shah and Jaitley — reacted by tuning in to Modi’s radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’ while having tea with people across Gujarat Actor-turned-politician Paresh Rawal took this mudslinging a step further by tweeting that "our chaiwala is any day better than your bar-wala" ‘Rome rajya’ If the Congress has not learnt anything from the ‘maut ka saudagar’ remark the BJP has also clearly not learnt anything from its bad habit of trying to link Congress with Italy BJP MP Virendra Singh Mast on Wednesday described the upcoming Gujarat polls as a battle between "Ram rajya" and "Rome rajya" claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi symbolised the former "The Gujarat polls are a contest between ‘Ram rajya and Rome rajya’ Modi is the symbol of ‘Ram rajya’ in our times The BJP will certainly win" he had said Modi’s new motto is ‘na bolunga na bolne dunga’: Rahul While criticising the Modi government during a rally in Gujarat towards the end of November Rahul Gandhi had said that Modi’s new motto was ‘no bolunga na bolne dunga’ He had also said that while Modi only liked talking about his own ‘Mann ki Baat’ Congress wanted to listen to the people’s mann ki baat Adityanath’s dig at Congress afterUttar Pradesh civic poll results On 1 December Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had taken a dig at the Congress and said the party which was daydreaming of winning the Gujarat Assembly polls has failed to even open an account in the Uttar Pradesh municipal corporation polls "Jo Gujarat jeetne ka sapna dekh rahe hain unka yahan Amethi mein bhi soopda saaf ho gaya hai" he had said ridiculing the Congress which lost even in the party pocket borough of Amethi Shiv Sena praising Rahul Gandhi One of the most stinging remarks against the BJP came from its ally Shiv Sena On Wednesday the party had said that Gujarat polls had transformed Rahul Gandhi into a leader and that the Congress vice-president’s temple visits was a "win for Hindutva" "The election which is touted by the BJP to be a sure win seems to have tired Prime Minister Narendra Modi as it has turned Rahul Gandhi into a leader" the Sena a long-time but often bickering partner of the BJP had said in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana Those opposing bullet train project can take bullock carts: Modi While lashing out at Congress for its criticism of the Rs 11 lakh crore bullet train project Modi had said "Those opposing the bullet train project should travel on bullock carts We won’t mind" He had also said that the UPA government under Manmohan Singh also wanted the project but could not get it "The NDA government got it at a negligible price So the Congress didn’t like that My only grievance against the Congress is that if they could not achieve anything why does it pain them when someone else does it" the prime minister had said Rahul’s question to Modi about safety of women in Gujarat On Sunday Rahul had accused Modi of making fake promises to the women of Gujarat The Congress leader had pointed out that Gujarat was ranked third in human trafficking fifth in acid attacks on women and 10th in rape of minor girls

addressed the Monsoon Session of the Parliament over the ongoing border stand-off?The audience will be treated to folk music of Punjab, the Chinese dream became Xi’s singular obsession and his signature slogan.Neither Xi nor any of his Communist factotum has ever deigned to define precisely what this dream is all about except saying that it means working for a grand "renaissance" of the Chinese people But by 2016 the world was convinced that Xi is in fact daydreaming of Pax Sinica (Latin for Chinese peace the phrase refers to a point in history some 1000 to 1500 years ago when unchallenged Chinese hegemony enforced peace in East Asia) In other words Xi was struck by the fixation of resuscitating China’s past glory long before Donald Trump came up with the unconvincing shibboleth of Make America Great Again last year A Chinese dream a global nightmare What worries the world is that the Chinese dream has come to mean among other things domestically that Xi will turn China into a muscle-flexing monster across continents to browbeat countries that refuse to toe the Chinese line He has already tried to do that to a degree But Xi found to his surprise that to Make China Great Again he needs more than the five years of his first term So he is getting a second one of another five years in a few months when the 19th Party Congress meets After whipping up nationalism bordering on jingoism with his talk of this dream fashioning himself as an evangelist of globalisation nonpareil unleashing the One-Brick-One-Road charade apparently to help the world but to boost Chinese industry talking tough to countries like Japan and India and almost colonising Pakistan in the process Xi has made himself a darling of his people—or so his media mouthpieces want us to believe No doubt Xi will find it a cakewalk to get himself a second term and that will give him ten years in power in all There lies another problem Will ten years be enough to turn a humongous dream into a reality Xi doubts it So he is angling for a third term when the second ends in 2022 But that won’t be easy if not impossible By 2022 Xi will be 69 and he must leave the job if China’s informal retirement age of 68 for top leaders is implemented Deng Xiaoping had brought in this rule to stop any leader from turning into a life-long dictator like Mao Zedong But Xi’s supporters are already thumbing their noses at this rule saying it’s not something that is “set in stone” But Xi may have the option of staying on as a “Paramount Leader” even after 2022 by appointing a yes-man as the president But all this comes later For now it’s this year’s party Congress that matters most to Xi He may use it to test the waters for violating the age-ceiling rules While getting his second term he is expected to extend the tenure of 68-year-old Wang Qishan the Politburo Standing Committee member and head of the party’s Discipline Commission Wang has not only led Xi’s anti-corruption drive but is a bouncer and troubleshooter of sorts for the president By extending Wang’s term in 2017 Xi will set a precedent for himself to stay on at the helm beyond 2022 Why immediate escalation at Doka La is unlikely As all this goes on Xi is most likely to push Doka La to the back burner Writing for the Australian Think Tank Lowy Institute Shashank Joshi presents four possible scenarios in the Doka La stalemate 1 Either China or India will make a unilateral withdrawal from the disputed territory 2 China will use force to expel Indian forces to teach India a lesson 3 A protracted standoff 4 A diplomatic settlement Joshi considers the first scenario unlikely because of the rigid posturing of China and India China on its sovereignty and India on its national security He is sceptical about the second possibility as well because the region’s geography gives India a distinct military advantage and China instead of risking defeat may think of striking India elsewhere to use it for a bargain in Doka La He suspects that since the circumstances might not be ripe for the fourth possibility of a diplomatic truce the third scenario is the most probable one A continued deadlock indeed seems most likely if you consider how crucial the lead-up to the party Congress is for Xi to consolidate his power Towards that end Xi has been fixing his rivals in the guise of his otherwise well-meaning anti-corruption drive Earlier this week Sun Zhengcai a man tipped as a possible contender for the president’s post was ousted ostensibly for being corrupt According to some reports Sun’s downfall is a pointer to turbulent times in Beijing While the state-controlled media has unleashed an unprecedented publicity blitz to sing Xi’s praise a communist party mouthpiece has unashamedly declared that China needs a Mao-like strongman like Xi oblivious to the fact that Deng Xiaoping and many Chinese intellectuals didn’t want another Mao Under Xi China has also been experiencing media and freedom curbs horrendous even by its own standards Xi is too busy with all his secret manoeuvres inside China to do anything rash in Doka La for the time being In the meantime the soldiers of China and India can stay on in the disputed area at kissing distance and go on fuming at each other Hyderabad: The Telangana government on Thursday accorded sanction for prosecution of AIMIM leader

153-A of the IPC in Crime No01/2013 of Nirmal Police Station of Adilabad district" a government order said Akbaruddin Owaisi File photo PTI Section 153-A of the IPC deals with promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion race place of birth residence language etc and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony The legislator who represents Chandrayangutta constituency in the city is also the floor leader of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) in Telangana Legislative Assembly He is facing charges of sedition and waging war against the nation among

granted bail in both the cases The politics over the Naxal attack in Sukma Chhattisgarh went to a whole new level when BJP in Delhi decided to ‘dedicate’ their victory in the MCD polls to the 25 CRPF jawans who had lost their lives Poster put up outside BJP HQ dedicating MCD win to CRPF jawans who lost their lives in #sukmaattack #DelhiMCDElections2017 pictwittercom/vpTePAclNM — ANI (@ANI_news) April 26 2017 Apart from dedicating election victories to martyred jawans BJP has also blamed human rights activists for adopting "double standards" for being silent over the deadly Maoist attack but raising a hue and cry when extremists are killed by security forces "These (human rights) activists raise voice and react violently if an extremist or a terrorist is killed by the police but take shelter in silence when a large number of jawans and innocent people get killed by those who operate underground" Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu had said on Tuesday "While the nation was shocked by this killing and violence the so-called sympathisers and proponents of human rights have maintained baffling silence since Monday (when CRPF men were killed)" Naidu added Home Minister Rajnath Singh (left) with Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh PTI Home Minister Rajnath Singh is also reportedly unhappy with the way the CRPF has been functioning in Chhattisgarh Sources had told PTI that he has conveyed to the CRPF brass to resolve some "inherent" problems like weaponry logistics and intelligence-gathering mechanism to ensure lethality and better results by avoiding casualties in anti-Naxal operations What the ruling party has not done so far (apart from dedicating poll victories blaming activists and indirectly pointing fingers at CRPF) is comment on why a survivor of the Sukma Naxal attack said that guarding a place as unstable as Kashmir was easier than being a part of an anti-Maoist operation "We were completely outnumbered and ran out of ammunition after two hours of relentless gunfight This led to higher casualties Guarding Kashmir is easier than being part of an anti-Maoist operation" The Times of India quoted an injured CRPF constable as saying The government needs to urgently answer why a paramilitary force of around two lakh personnel — some of whom complain of conditions worse than the ones prevailing in Kashmir — has remained headless for two months now "MHA should be hauled up for not appointing a DG of such a big force They know when the retirement of an officer is due there is no reason the organisation should remain headless" India Today quoted former BSF Director General Prakash Singh as saying The government should answer why former Union Home Secretary LC Goyal’s suggestion in 2015 of an army cantonment being set up in Bastar was not taken forward Another report in The Times of India reported that Goyal had in fact raised his idea of locating a cantonment area in Abujhmarh (a forest area in Chhattisgarh) with the prime minister himself and other top officials of the security establishment Why is it that a paramilitary force which frequently keeps facing life-threatening attacks by Naxals still does not have good enough equipment and protective gear After the Naxal attack in Sukma politicians from the ruling party fed us the same rosy lines of patriotism about being "proud of the valour of our CRPF personnel" the "sacrifices" of "our bravehearts" and the all-too-familiar "deepest condolences" But the ruling party needs to address some hard-hitting concrete issues if it actually means those words And the opposition parties are as much to blame for playing such petty politics and blame games The most bitter comments came from the Congress For example Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a dig at the government over its linking demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes last year with surrender of Maoists Last heard ‘demonetization’ was the Govt’s strategy to neutralize Naxalism I hope the ‘revised’ strategy has a little more purpose & impact https://tco/fNBGUOHlbT — Office of RG (@OfficeOfRG) April 25 2017 That the Congress is more interested in using the Sukma attack as a tool to attack the government is pretty evident when another Congress leader Manish Tewari after initially linking demonetisation to the Sukma attack quickly shifted the focus to demonetisation rather than the actual attack "The principal Opposition party also maintained that the government should revisit the entire demonetisation debate Whosoever in the government had actually made the link between demonetisation and economic crackdown on Naxals the prime minister should throw them out immediately from the government" India Today quoted Tewari as saying Congress clearly seems to be more interested in attacking demonetisation — probably the most important decision taken by the Narendra Modi government — than addressing the real issues In fact Digvijaya Singh went a step ahead and accused Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh and other BJP leaders who win elections from Naxalism-affected areas of striking a "deal" with the Maoists JD(U) leaders also chose to bring up the point of demonetisation while criticising the government over the Sukma attack If politicians in India were more interested in talking about real problems affecting our security personnel rather than resorting to bitter mud-slinging our security personnel would probably not have to face such severe hardships Editor’s note: Parth MN is travelling across Maharashtra’s Marathwada province on a People’s Archive of Rural India fellowship to chronicle agrarian issues in the region over a period of 6-8 months Firstpost will reproduce his reports as and when he files them for Pari Sandip Shelke had taken charge of his family’s four acres in Khamaswadi village in Marathwada’s Osmanabad district 6-7 years ago after the joint family divided their land He was just 19 years old then "My eldest son Mahesh is handicapped in both legs" Sandip’s mother Nandubai says tearfully "Sandip’s uncle would look after the entire land (before the sub-division) My husband works on the farm but he is quite nave and does not take decisions" The Shelkes had cultivated jowar wheat and soyabean for years without much returns So Sandip decided to try sugarcane for the June 2017 sowing season "A cash crop was one of the ways to get rid of our debts” says Nandubai sitting in their dimly lit tin-roofed shed ‘A cash crop was one of the ways to get rid of our debts’ says Nandubai Shelke Sandip’s grieving mother Image by Parth MN In 2012 just two years after Sandip took over the farm Marathwada entered a four-year spell of erratic weather – marked by hailstorms or sparse unseasonal showers as well as drought This damaged crops and farmers suffered severe losses The Shelke family was left with a debt of Rs 35 lakh from the local bank and more than Rs 1 lakh from a private moneylender But Sandip held on The crisis did not stop him from arranging his elder sister Sandhya’s wedding two years ago "He was very responsible and sincere" she says "He would help mom in the kitchen look after his brother" To clear the debts Sandip felt he could not rely on traditional food crops for which the state does not ensure a minimum support price (MSP) As a result their prices fluctuate in the market increasing the uncertainty of returns But the government incentivises sugarcane —with an MSP a decent sugarcane crop guaranteed more money Sandip thought However cultivating it entails other risks The crop is water intensive and needs much more investment than food crops "In any case we were going under" says Nandubai "Something had to be done" The Shelke family’s house in Khamaswadi village Osmanabad district: having paid a huge price already Sandip’s father Balbhim now faces uncertainty on the farm Image by Parth MN Determined to improve the family’s fortunes Sandip borrowed another Rs 1 lakh from a private moneylender and drilled a borewell which fortunately yielded water He bought sugarcane stalks on credit and stacked them under a lime tree in his farmland Then he waited for just a few decent showers so that he could buy fertilisers and pesticides to begin the sowing Meanwhile the debt was growing Apart from the bank loans the family’s total private loan (the recent one plus the earlier loan) had mushroomed to Rs 3 lakh “A failed crop here has the potential to permanently wreck us” says Sandip’s father Balbhim 52 “Maybe the pressure grew on him gradually” On June 8 Sandip was found hanging from the same lime tree under which he had stacked the gunny bags full of to-be-planted stalks and hope “At 8 in the morning a neighbour saw a body hanging from the tree” says Balbhim sitting in the shadow of the same tree “We went closer and realised it was Sandip I froze" In the first five months of this year 55 other farmers in Osmanabad had done the same according to data from the district collector’s office This amounts to one suicide every three days And the rate has remained steady even when the drought years are over with a good monsoon in 2016 One of the reasons why even a decent monsoon has failed to stop farm suicides and agrarian distress in Marathwada is the lack of options for farmers to raise credit for the sowing season Balbhim Shelke and other villagers at the tree from which Sandip hanged himself Image by Parth MN Who do they approach Banks disburse loans in a hugely skewed manner Data by the Reserve Bank of India shows the severe regional imbalance in banking: the eight districts of Marathwada have a population of 18 million double that of Pune district’s 9 million But the total advances given until March 2016 by commercial banks (nationalised and private) to Marathwada (Rs 45795 crore) is less than one-third the advances disbursed in Pune district (Rs 140 643 crore) This also reflects the reluctance of banks to give loans to regions they regard as economically unattractive and one reason why industries allied with agriculture don’t come up in those regions Devidas Tuljapurkar joint secretary of the All India Employees Bank Association says 90 percent of banking in Maharashtra is transacted in the three regions of Thane Mumbai and Pune “Resources in the developed region should be transferred to the underdeveloped region to bridge the gap” he says “Instead we are perpetuating the gap” Plus the banks have restructured farmers’ debts by clubbing together their crop loans and term loans The interest rate on a crop loan (for agricultural activities like buying seeds and fertilisers) is 7 percent; of this 4 percent is paid by the state A term loan (used for capital investments like tractors and machinery) could charge double the interest rate Through restructuring the banks merge the two loans and convert them into a new term loan This magnifies the farmers’ dues and classifies them as ineligible for new loans A retired officer with the Bank of Maharashtra in Aurangabad bank says he often advised farmers against restructuring “But not all bank officials do that” he says “Farmers are in fact told to go for it to avoid raids at their homes” In Anjanwati village Beed district Bhagwan Yedhe and his wife Sakharbai are also deep in debt: ‘Why would I want my sons to lead this life full of uncertainty’ he asks Image by Parth MN That leaves farmers with the option of approaching district cooperative banks where many traditionally have an account But the six banks in six districts of Marathwada are nearly defunct largely due to their inability to take on influential defaulters; the district cooperative banks in Latur and Aurangabad are not in great shape either That compels farmers like Sandip to approach private moneylenders who immediately disburse cash but at an exorbitant interest rate of 3-5 per cent per month – or 40-60 per cent per annum So even a supposedly manageable amount with interest added can eventually surpass the original amount many times over In Anjanwati village of Beed district Bhagwan Yedhe 65 and his wife Sakharbai are also preparing to visit a private moneylender “I already have a loan of 3 lakh rupees with Hyderabad bank and 15 lakh of private debt” Yedhe says “Some of the expenses were also for the education of my two sons They studied in Pune and are now looking for jobs” To prepare his five acres for the sowing season Yedhe spends around Rs 30000 on seeds fertilisers and pesticides for food crops Then there are labour and ploughing costs He hopes he is the last in his generation to do these calculations “Why would I want my sons to lead a life full of uncertainty” he asks “Raising credit is a pain The current system puts farmers at the mercy of others” Amid mounting protests on 24 June Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis announced a loan waiver for farmers in the state for loans taken after 2009 The state has said those farmers can now approach their banks for a crop loan with a clean slate But that too is a task says Yedhe’s nephew Ashok 40 “We need an NOC (no objection certificate) from each and every financial institution in the vicinity stating we do not have a loan pending with them We are made to do several trips and the NOC is released only after paying bribes There are 6-7 such places from where I would require an NOC How can I pay a bribe at every place Plus if we do not start preparations on time the entire season will be wasted” This is why Balbhim will have to get on his feet even though his son has committed suicide just a few weeks ago He has sown sugarcane after the initial showers as Sandip had planned He now hopes for a good monsoon and waits with biting uncertainty – just as Sandip did This piece first appeared in People’s Archive of Rural India and is reproduced here by arrangement withPari Written by Express News Service | New Delhi |
