Unlike her mentor Kanshi Ram who groomed her for the leadership position to keep the Dalit party going,Mayawati has shown —deliberately or otherwise —no such acumen or foresight The crisis faced by the two UP parties is underlined by the fact that in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls BSP drew a blank SP got five (all for the Yadav clan) and the Congress two (just Sonia and Rahul) while BJP secured 72 out of 80 seats The story was repeated in the 2017 Assembly elections with BSP managing 19 SP 48 Congress seven and BJP romping home with 311 out of 403 legislative seats BJD’s story in Odisha is unlikely to be any different from BSP’s or AIADMK’s Chief minister Naveen Patnaik has not groomed a second rung leadership for the party that stormed the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls in the state Sensing space

Madhya Pradesh — have 91 parliamentary seats between them but are allBJP ruled with the main opposition party Congress showing little signs of a fightback notwithstanding the acts of omission and

visit to DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi’s home was brief and lasted for only about 15 minutes But it sent several politically loaded messages to all concerned When Modi arrived to meet the ailing DMK supremo and his family members what they discussed was relatively less important What was important was that after all these years the supreme leader of the ruling BJP made a conscious effort to reach its erstwhile Tamilian partner It is immaterial whether even a word on the current political situation or politics in general was uttered during that brief interaction In politics a beginning is made through small gestures By landing up at Karunanidhi’s doorstep Modi has broken the ice and thawed a chill which had lasted about a decade-and-half in the relationship between the DMK and BJP It would be wishful to look for an immediate shift of stance by the BJP and the DMK Gains and losses would be weighed much later in the months and years to come M Karunanidhi the 93-year-old five-time chief minister of Tamil Nadu is one of seniormost political leaders in the country The Prime Minister visiting him at his residence to know of his health conditions and wish him well would at the outset appear to be about political courtesy But given the political climate and ever changing political alignments and realignments Modi’s move could be taken as more than extending political courtesy and due dignity to the DMK patriarch More so because most regional parties including the DMK function like private limited companies The leadership in the party is decided by heredity and legacy than being decided by a democratic process Prime Minister Narendra Modi with DMK chief M Karunanidhi Twitter/@narendramodi Karunanidhi’s son and political heir MK Stalin and Kanimozhi displayed much warmth on the arrival of PM Modi and the latter reciprocated it This could be seen from the way the prime minister slowed down a bit while walking inside the house to let Stalin join him Inside Karunanidhi’s wives Dayalu Ammal and Rajathi Ammal were there to greet the prime minister One cannot be sure when Karunanidhi and Modi met last or if Stalin and Modi had met earlier From the television visuals they all looked warm and cheerful Modi’s visit to Karunanidhi’s home in Chennai may have come as surprise to the nation However this must have been carefully planned well in advance with all possible permutations and combinations thought of The fact that Modi was accompanied by the defence minister who belongs to the state as also another prominent party leader from Tamil Nadu and that all important members of the DMK’s first family were also present indicates that a window has been opened for the second rung leaders to have further exchanges Presently the DMK is one of the most consistent allies of the Congress party It has been the Congress’s ally for the last 17 years and Kanimozhi was by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi’s side representing the DMK in all the meetings that the Congress held against the Modi government and the BJP on demonetisationthe presidential and vice-presidential elections In fact the Congress leadership would have very closely watched and intensely scrutinised the possible implications of Modi’s visit to the DMK chief’s residence and the bonhomie displayed there by both sides Though Rahul Gandhi had met Kanimozhi and Stalin on several occasions a picture like the one which came out from Chennai today had been missing for the Congress The DMK had been the BJP’s ally and as such was a part of the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government at the centre But in December 2003 the DMK parted ways from the BJP and the NDA The Tamilian party had its own set of grievances against the Vajpayee government The party was angry with Vajpayee with LK Advani and the BJP because despite having the best of relations with them personal and political they didn’t stand by their side when then chief minister J Jayalalithaa had unleashed a series of actions which prima facie appeared to be part of vendetta politics The Tamil Nadu police’s midnight raid at Karunanidhi’s residence to arrest him the injury to senior Maran in that incident and later the indiscriminate invoking of POTA by Jayalalithaa against rivals including Vaiko and others were some of these incidents Even as the DMK quit the NDA Vajpayee maintained his personal equations with Murasoli Maran visiting him in hospital when he was ill and later attending Maran’s funeral DMK was taken as a trusted ally by the BJP but Vajpayee as the PM was not in a position to meet certain demands of the DMK including the dismissal of a popularly elected Jayalalithaa government In 2004 DMK supported the Congress and the AIADMK supported the BJP In the parliamentary elections that were held the same year the AIADMK was wiped out and the DMK swept the polls Let us turn to the 2017 situation The BJP is still inclined to the AIADMK and vice versa Though they are not alliance partners the BJP has given the Deputy Speaker’s post in the Lok Sabha to AIADMK MP M Thambidurai Modi and the late J Jayaliathaa shared a close personal rapport Modi government is also supportive of Jalayalalitha’s successor in Tamil Nadu government But it looks as though the BJP wants to keep options open for the future for 2019 to be more specific A source in the ruling BJP said Modi’s decision to go and meet Karunanidhi is reflective of his vision and constant endeavor to open new frontiers on his own or with the help of allies One such manifestation of his sharp thought process came from the meeting in Chennai As it is the BJP is in power in much of the north and west and for 2019 it needs to look to the south and east This has been emphasised on many occasions by party chief Amit Shah In the east the BJP has now aligned with Nitish Kumar In Assam the BJP is now in a commanding position and is opening up in the north-east In West Bengal and Odisha the party is trying to fight on its own against the TMC and BJD with some success Down south in Andhra Pradesh Modi has aligned with both the regional parties in Andhra Pradesh with Chandrababu Naidu and Jaganmohan Reddy The same is the case in Telangana That leaves Tamilnadu and Kerala It now appears that Modi wants to keep his options open for both the parties DMK and AIADMK In Kerala it is putting all its might to stand on its own the source contended By: Express News Service | Published: July 11 2014 12:03 am Related News The Narendra Modi government’s debut budget did not deviate from the path set by the Congress-led UPA government It did not slash fund allocations to its flagship entitlement schemes or cut petroleum product and fertiliser subsidies It did not take any bold measures like easing in labour reform to give the manufacturing sector and job creation a boost It did not alter tax rates or do away with the plethora of exemptions In a nutshell Finance Minister Arun Jaitley appeared to take the UPA’s cues He kept the single most important macro-economic indicator — the fiscal deficit as a percentage of the gross domestic product — at the level set by P Chidambaram his predecessor The markets were seemingly happy with Jaitley’s determination to follow the path of fiscal rectitude His reassuring words to foreign portfolio investors encouragement to small entrepreneurs promise of tax stability and certainty pushed the benchmark Sensex up 350 points during the two-hour-fifteen-minute budget speech But nagging doubts over his ability to achieve the “daunting” deficit target of 41 per cent of the GDP in 2014-15 slowly dragged the Sensex down The benchmark index finally closed 72 points lower than the previous day What Jaitley did quite adeptly is pluck the low hanging fruit which the UPA government failed to all through its second term Take foreign direct investment in defence and insurance for example The UPA dithered over it Allowing 49 per cent FDI in defence will help India bridge the technology gaps in indigenous manufacturing It will simultaneously let ancillary manufacturing units flourish Similarly 49 per cent FDI in insurance even if it comes without commensurate shareholding rights will bring in foreign investors who see huge potential and promise in India given its low insurance penetration The finance minister also identified the real estate sector for adding momentum to business activity by announcing taxation benefits for real estate investment trusts individual borrowers and financial institutions Incentives to this sector spur the construction business which has a significant multiplier effect This has boosted the confidence of India Inc Given the phenomenal mandate the people gave to the Modi-led BJP in the Lok Sabha elections however the NDA government could have taken the tough decisions and administered the “bitter medicine” for a larger good that Modi has spoke of so eloquently But Jaitley chose not to overwhelm the macro pundits Perhaps it was the wisdom gleaned from his government’s decision to roll back suburban rail fares the very next day after announcing the hike The finance minister took only guarded and time-tested steps to spur growth For instance he extended investment allowance to incentivise small and medium companies the backbone of the manufacturing sector and also gave a fillip to affordable housing For the neo-middle class that the prime minister often referred to during his election campaign Jaitley extended a range of sops such as new small savings schemes higher income tax exemption and investment limits under Section 80C and higher deduction under home loan repayment Not only that he announced the setting up of a slew of IITs IIMs and AIIMS to meet the rising aspirations of this class There was something for almost every issue that has dominated public discourse in the last couple of years — from the safety of women in big cities to a skills upgrade for the minorities Couldthe Modi government have done more on growth inflation jobs and reforms Especially given the backdrop of a high-decibel election campaign that promised a lot and the decisive mandate that mirrored the people’s belief in the promises made Having criticised retrospective tax amendments Jaitley could have taken a decisive stance instead of stopping at promising a stable tax regime and not resorting to retrospective changes Similarly on subsidies he could have talked of a timeframe to do away with the administered pricing regime of petroleum products In a single line he proposed to overhaul the subsidy regime including food and petroleum subsidies One of the biggest indirect tax reforms — the Goods and Services Tax — first talked about in the 2007-08 Budget has not seen fruition and Jaitley refrained from setting a deadline for its introduction To give industry flexibility in employing labour BJP-ruled Rajasthan has set an example with its cabinet clearing amendments to three critical laws A strong signal of intent by the Centre in this area which falls in the concurrent list would have prodded other states Jaitley has kept quiet on these tricky subjects Perhaps the silence was deliberate The debut budget could be seen as the first of a five-part economic statement the NDA government has in mind For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

investigators Thursday probed possible institutional negligence or corruption The crash happened Tuesday on a single-track stretch of railway run by station managers who communicate directly with train drivers a system Italian authorities described as outdated and "risky" A police officer walks near the wreckage at the site of the train crash Reuters "I’m the one who sent the train on its way" Vito Piccarreta head of Andria station in the Puglia region in southern Italy told journalists "There was some confusion the trains were late But I’m not the only one at fault" Hundreds of mourners held a silent candle-lit procession through the town to the station late Wednesday after relatives of victims spent the day at a hospital morgue providing identification details to help doctors put names to the mangled dead One of the four-carriage trains was supposed to have waited at Andria to let another through from nearby Corato town An extra train had been slotted into the timetable at the last minute because of delays on the line Tuesday which may have resulted in the confusion for the Andria station chief according to Italian media reports The delays worsened after one of the trains coming north from Corato had to turn back because it had forgotten to let a disabled girl off at the previous stop the Repubblica daily said Piccarreta is under investigation for having lifted the green "Go" signalling sign But the Corato station master Alessio Porcelli is also in the spotlight because Piccarreta reportedly warned him the train was on its way Multiple probes Trade unions had filed complaints saying the recent increase in traffic on the line with no extra staff was a safety risk the Repubblica paper said A slight bend in the track reduced visibility leaving the trains — which were travelling at over 100 kilometres (62 miles) an hour — with fewer than 50 metres in which to brake to a stop when they needed 250 metres the Corriere della Sera said But assistant

said As Italy’s financial police opened an investigation into the project delays the head of the nation’s anti-bribery authority pointed the finger at endemic corruption in the country which has poisoned the well of public infrastructure procurement "The tragedy is probably the result of human error the judiciary will establish the facts But it is without doubt also the result of an old problem in our country the difficulties in putting in place suitable infrastructure" Raffaele Cantone said "And one of the reasons for these difficulties is precisely corruption" Italian consumer
