national capital Alka Lamba PTI In a letter to Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia Lamba said that Sahai was unhappy with Delhi government’s decision to scrap Rs 800 crore project under Shahjanabad Redevelopment Corporation (SRDC) "In a meeting of SRDC held on September 23 2015 whose members are Deputy CM Manish Sisodia PWD Minister Satyendar Jain Finance and Home Secretary SN Sahai and SMDC’s MD Faiz Hasmi were present The meeting lasted for around one hour following which the Deputy CM and PWD Minister left and directed to continue with the meeting "The moment meeting commenced SN Sahai started questioning the decisions of government and convince others to do the same He was upset over Delhi government reversing the decision of scrapping Rs 800 crore projects" Lamba claimed Despite repeated attempts Sahai was not available for comment Incidentally last week the Delhi government and DANICS were at loggerheads over suspension of two officials following which the DANICS officers association had taken a decision to go on one-day mass casual leave as a mark of protest The AGMUT-cadre IAS officers association too extended support to the DANICS officers association Lamba who is a

admitted that he didn’t think his team could regain the Ashes (Source: AP) Related News The surprising ease of England’s triumph in the Ashes with one Test still to go tells two stories: that of Australia’s ageing team exemplified by the retirement of the team’s captain Michael Clarke; and of the rise of a young England reflected in the fading away of the memory of Kevin Pietersen Not many in England genuinely believed in the team — even captain Alastair Cook admitted that he didn’t think his team could regain the Ashes The decision of the new director of cricket Andrew Strauss to close the door on Pietersen was lambasted in the press and on social media but many have been pleasantly surprised by the tenacity and skill of the young inexperienced team That Joe Root starred with a couple of tons came as no surprise but the progress of Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow the powerful comeback of Steven Finn as well as the consistency of Moeen Ali and Mark Wood helped experienced players like Ian Bell overcome mini-crises Seniors like James Anderson and Stuart Broad sparkled When there was immense pressure on England in the third Test after the disastrous one-sided loss in the second Finn decimated Australia with a fiery five-wicket haul As England racked up the wins Pietersen retreated into the past Meanwhile Australia were sliding towards their own personal hell The biggest blow came just before the series when bowler Ryan Harris’s fragile body forced him into retirement The posterboy for old-school Australian aggression Brad Haddin was replaced mid-series; Shane Watson continued his inexorable slide; Mitchell Johnson was largely ineffective; and Mitchell Starc couldn’t carry this feeble team on his own Importantly unlike England the younger players didn’t come of age in time — their iffy batting techniques were exposed by the conditions and even the likes of David Warner couldn’t quite beat the odds It would be churlish to put down England’s achievement to Australia’s batting problems but its contribution to the ease of the English victory has to be registered While Australia waits for its youth to grow up England is celebrating its young

which Modi seems to depart from Indira Gandhi Unlike her erosion of federalism Modi has repeatedly announced his support for deepening federalism Source: Express Photo Related News His approach resembles that of Indira Gandhi But he must note: in Delhi what one controls slips away What is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s view of political institutions Consequent upon the rejection of Gopal Subramanium’s nomination as a Supreme Court judge the gubernatorial appointments and the changes in Delhi University’s undergraduate curriculum there has been some debate on whether institutions will suffer under Modi’s leadership The debate needs greater clarity Perhaps the best way to think about the institutions is to examine the matter historically The three longest-lasting prime ministers of India — Jawaharlal Nehru (17 years) Indira Gandhi (15 years) and Manmohan Singh (10 years) — are associated with three different institutional models Atal Bihari Vajpayee could well have developed a fourth model but before he could do so he lost power Which model is Modi closest to Institutional nurturing marked the Nehru model He did not attack the judges when the SC invalidated his land reform programme a lynchpin of his economic policy Rather he followed the constitutionally assigned procedure of passing an amendment to override the judiciary He did not appoint presidents of the Congress party; the party elected its leader He did not impose chief ministers on states; the state units of the Congress made that call Party colleagues sometimes staunchly opposed his policies but dissenters were not expelled from the party Instead debates in party forums decided who would win Charan Singh defeated Nehru on farm collectives Initially opposed to a linguistic organisation of Indian federalism Nehru gave in when a democratic storm erupted Whenever a clash between democracy and his personal policy positions arose he would embrace the former Nehru’s record of course is not flawless Two institutional deficits are especially noteworthy In 1957 he suspended the first elected Communist government of Kerala on grounds of law and order; the case for president’s rule was not incontestably clear He was also either unable or unwilling to follow proper procedures in the continued arrest of Sheikh Abdullah Kashmir’s preeminent leader until the early 1980s Ostensibly on grounds of treason Abdullah’s arrest though ordered by the state government not Delhi lasted more than a decade but legal proceedings were never instituted No democrat ever keeps someone in jail without judicial approval The second model was Indira Gandhi’s Biologically a daughter of Nehru institutionally she was anti-Nehru Her approach illustrated the ambivalent character of charisma with respect to institutions If Nehru invested his charisma into institutions thereby strengthening them Indira Gandhi used her charisma to undermine institutions arguing the leader was more important than the institutions After 1971 when her army dismembered Pakistan and she won a thumping victory in the elections her power was immense and her charisma beyond doubt But how did she use her power and charisma She expressed open preference for a committed judiciary not one that acts as a watchdog over the executive In 1973 she suspended internal party elections imposing loyal Congressmen on the party as presidents thereafter She eliminated the practice of the state units of the party electing their chief ministers picking them personally instead She repeatedly took recourse to Article 356 to suspend non-Congress state governments Finally in June 1975 faced with an adverse court verdict and a movement against her she suspended democracy jailed opposition leaders gagged the press and gave extra-constitutional authority to her son Sanjay Gandhi The trains did run on time The third institutional model belonging to Manmohan Singh’s 10 years in power was based on a bifurcation of power and responsibility The locus of power was the Nehru-Gandhi family but the responsibility for policy and governance lay with Manmohan Singh’s government The consequence was the weakest stable government of independent India which often reduced the office of the prime minister to an empty shell For a BJP-led government the third model is always a possibility If the Congress has its dynasty at 10 Janpath the BJP has its RSS family in Nagpur Being the institutional centrepiece of Hindu nationalism as well as the purveyor of thousands of volunteers working as electoral mobilisers the RSS always feels privileged when the BJP is in power But is the matter so simple Modi’s record both in Gujarat and already since coming to power in Delhi shows that he may not allow the RSS to become a 10 Janpath Already widely noted is his fraught relationship with some wings of the Sangh parivar especially the VHP which campaigned against him during the Gujarat state elections Some key ministerial portfolios of the new Modi government — finance defence human resources — have not gone to RSS ideologues Modi’s economic philosophy too follows a much more modern view of Hindu nationalism than what the RSS has preferred in the past The RSS has always been more comfortable in the company of small-town shopkeepers than in the glittering offices of South Mumbai or with the jet-set foreign capital Modi’s courting of the latter is well known Modi’s BJP is beginning to resemble Indira Gandhi’s Congress Much like Congress cadres propelling Indira’s rise against stalwarts like Morarji Desai Modi’s immense popularity with the BJP’s mass base has led to his remarkable ascendancy Virtually every major stalwart of the BJP has been diminished if not thrown out — think of LK Advani as roughly if not exactly comparable to Desai The new BJP president is someone known for his unwavering loyalty to Modi much like the relationship of all Congress presidents to Indira Gandhi after 1973 The top echelons of the RSS cannot but be concerned about what lies ahead Will the BJP be RSS-governed or Modi-dominated Modi’s rejection of Gopal Subramanium’s judicial candidacy and his government’s approach to higher education thus far also parallel Indira Gandhi But there is at least one institutional sense in which Modi seems fundamentally to depart from her Unlike her erosion of federalism Modi has repeatedly announced his support for deepening federalism a point to be taken seriously until systematically violated With a veritable record of electoral victories behind them BJP chief ministers of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are also personalities in their own right They can’t easily be trifled with Of course it is too early to come to strong conclusions One can go wrong in reading the early trends for two reasons First because of the relative mysteriousness of the RSS one can misidentify the nature of the relationship between Modi and the RSS Second Modi can change course in the future Back in the 1960s Samuel Huntington famously argued that power first has to be concentrated before it can be dispersed Critics of Huntington always argued that those who concentrate power might choose not to disperse it Which way will Modi go Be that as it may we know that Indira Gandhi’s institutional model failed With a decentralised institutional model Nehru never lost a general election but Indira Gandhi was outvoted in 1977 even though her control over her party was complete and her threats to the judiciary and the press made many judges and journalists subservient India is too vast too diverse too free to be ruled with an institutional model that concentrates power That model can at best work at the state level In Delhi inescapably what one controls slips away a thousand resentments

occurrence of any incident involving his helicopter in which he was said to have escaped unhurt Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis near his chopper Image courtesy: Sanjay Sawant An official had earlier on Friday claimed that Fadnavis escaped unhurt in a freak incident in which his helicopter lifted off and tilted over him even as he waited near its door to board it on his way back to Mumbai from Raigad Seeing the chopper tilt over the chief minister his security personnel rushed and pulled him away to safety the official had claimed But the CMO strongly denied occurrence of any such incident saying there was no accident at all "Rumours are being spread that the the helicopter was involved in an accident There was no such accident People should not believe rumours" it said Fadnavis had gone to Raigad on Friday to attend the birthday celebrations of PWP leader Jayant Patil and to inaugurate an auditorium An initial probe conducted by the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) into the incident had prima-facie found lapses on the part of the pilot "The pilot failed to assess the load on the helicopter on a day of high temperature Since heat makes it harder for a chopper/aircraft to get off the ground he should not have taken off with almost full load" an AAIB official had said It was the third time Fadnavis was involved a helicopter-related scare On 25 May he had a narrow escape when his chopper got entangled in overhead wires and crash-landed in Latur district of Maharashtra after the pilot tried to descend due to bad weather soon after the take-off
