The remarks by Ganga has further strained the already tense atmosphere between the alliance partners and embarrassed the BJP partner,which is demanding Ganga’s immediate resignation The cracks deepened further after Peoples Democratic Party lost a berth last week in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly after Syed Bakir Rizvi an independent lawmaker from Zanskar area in Ladakh decided to vote for the BJP at the last moment In the Assembly BJP has strength of 26 members and the support of two MLAs of Sajad Lone’s Peoples Conference while PDP has 29 MLAs As per the understanding between the coalition partners Rizvi had to cast one vote for PDP candidate Abdul Qayoom Dar to ensure his victory but the party decided otherwise and preferred voting for their candidate And the BJP’s victory on an unsafe seat and PDP’s defeat on a safe seat in the council has only deepened this rift Senior PDP leaders have already taken up the matter with senior functionaries of BJP in New Delhi “They want to have everything" Nizam ud Din Bhat general secretary of the PDP toldFirstpost "It is the responsibility of both parties to follow coalition dharma It was decided by party leaders not to attend the oath-taking ceremony of the newly-elected members of council to protest against poaching" Yasir Reshi the lone elected member of PDP did not take the oath although he was seen in the council secretariat minutes before the ceremony began “Yes I boycotted the oath ceremony But it was my personal decision not of the party What happened during elections was a big shock to me” Yasir said The Bharatiya Janata Party’s core group meet in New Delhi to discuss the situation in Kashmir also sent shock waves through the PDP According to reports some top BJP leaders said the Centre must consider imposition of President’s rule in the state Only time will tell how the coalition of compromise fares Re-energising the Congress from its present inertia is a challenging task But if media reports of how Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi wants to meet that challenge are correct there may be reason to worry still Keen to initiate a culture of “collective functioning” in the dynasty-driven party Gandhi apparently wants to set up a group of 10 leaders to revamp the Congress The group’s mandate will include outlining the party’s policies in key issues that are believed to be close to Gandhi’s heart – welfare reforms and tribal rights Political analysts have already outlined parallels between Gandhi’s proposed panel and the National Advisory Council (NAC) established by his mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi The NAC functioned as the fulcrum of the UPA government’s welfare policies which as many economists since have asserted did impact the lives of India’s underclasses Despite frequent allegations of ‘policy paralysis’ levelled against the Manmohan Singh government during its two-term tenure the welfare policies did make a difference – even if minor That the Congress was not able to craft a popular campaign around its own productive policies is something the party should ponder File photo of Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi PTI But Gandhi seems to have forgotten that the Congress today is in a very different place from the time the NAC played an active role in the governance agenda The Congress then led a coalition which remained in power for a decade Today the Congress is a party in Opposition with just 44 Lok Sabha members The electoral losses the party has suffered since 2013 have drastically reduced its political power ceding more and more ground to assertive regional parties like Trinamool Congress Aam Aadmi Party Janata Dal (United) AIADMK and others For the Congress things are about as bad as they can get This is the time to shake the party up not to institute committees Sure well-researched perspectives and critiques on the present BJP-led government’s policies will help the Opposition to call the government out on important policy fault lines But policy deficit is not what’s corroding the Congress The problem goes right to the heart of the party’s leadership and its political direction Or more precisely the absence of political direction and the weak leadership provided by none other than the Congress vice-president himself These are urgent issues demanding reform This is where the Congress needs “surgery” – a term repeatedly used by some senior party leaders following the Congress’ recent assembly poll defeats But if “surgery” means instituting more committees in the name of “collective leadership” such a project is doomed from the very outset The Congress vice-president needs to define the party’s core politics Playing the soft Hindutva card – especially against an aggressive BJP – has unsurprisingly led the Congress nowhere For instance we have seen Rahul Gandhi vociferously oppose the slogan Bharat Mata Ki Jai as a mandatory chant but at the same time his party’s MLAs in Maharashtra assembly have backed a resolution to suspend the AIMIM legislator Waris Pathan for defying the fiat Neither Sonia nor Rahul Gandhi has pulled up the party MLA or strictly laid down the party line on an issue that for weeks dominated national conversation Such shifting opportunistic stances have become a defining marker of Congress politics Just as glaring is its lack of a genuine commitment to Dalits and minorities The only way the Congress can revitalize its organisation is by truly marking out its political differences from the BJP To achieve that end the party needs to junk committees and take drastic steps It has to come clean And that can only be achieved under a decisive party leadership Barring the blind and the faithful few will dispute that Rahul Gandhi lacks the political vision that is needed to extricate the Congress from the morass it has sunk into Take the party’s fractious state units for instance Even as the Congress talks of a revamp it has more bad news in the North East The latest to join its long list of rebellious units is Tripura Six Congress legislators (out of a total of 10MLAs) have resigned and joined the Trinamool Congress which will now be the ruling Left government’s primary opposition in Tripura In Chhattisgarh senior Congress leader Ajit Jogi recently announced his decision to launch a new party severing links with the Congress Not so long ago Assam’s important Congress leader Himanta Biswa Sarma quit the party and joined the BJP Sarma was instrumental in defeating the Congress and facilitating the formation of the first-ever BJP government in the state Clearly Gandhi hasn’t got his political fundamentals right The time when he could still be excused as a novice in party politics is long gone Rather than focusing on strengthening regional units and fostering a strong line of regional leaders Gandhi has been running helter-skelter without political purpose New Delhi:Women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi on Tuesday said that after the "resounding" success of the "Beti Bachao Beti Padhao" scheme the ministry is now targeting the problem of malnutrition "After the resounding success of Modiji’s Beti Bachao Beti Padhao programme that brought about a phenomenal change in the mindset a similar approach is needed to fight malnutrition particularly among mothers and children" she said File image of Maneka Gandhi AFP The minister was addressing the "National Conference on Mission Mode to address Under-Nutrition" The conference was organised by the WCD ministry in collaboration with the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare keeping in mind the goal of "Mission Malnutrition Free India-2022" Gandhi gave away awards to three states — Chhattisgarh Arunachal Pradesh and Gujarat — for substantial reduction in stunting (impaired growth and development that children experience from poor nutrition) during the 10-year period between National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-3 and NFHS-4 She also released a book "Forest Lanterns" containing essays on solutions to improve nutrition among children in tribal areas Gandhi said there is an urgent need to improve the quality of supplementary nutrition and to make the delivery system efficient "We must provide 1000 calories to women and 600 calories to children under ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services) The focus of the entire mission should be to administer nutrition rather than feeding beneficiaries by giving nutrient-dense food" A change in policy is required to implement this the minister said The ministry will soon issue new guidelines on supplementary nutrition in this regard in the next few days which will supersede all existing guidelines "Similarly a separate self-contained protocol for severely and acutely malnourished (SAM) children will also be issued shortly" she added Minister of State for WCD Virendra Kumar said: "The country has succeeded in eliminating several difficult problems like chickenpox and polio and thus it should not be difficult to overcome the problem of malnutrition" Secretary Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation Parameswaran Iyer said the problem of malnutrition is closely linked to the problem of drinking water and sanitation "The Swachh Bharat Mission is trying to achieve the goal of total sanitation which will also contribute to reducing malnutrition" he said India PM plans cabinet revamp some ministers offer to quit – sources | Reuters Fwire Reuters Sep 01 2017 00:11:27 IST Comment 0 Tweet This story
