a mammoth 537 on the second day of the opening cricket Test at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium at Rajkot on Thursday India made a cautious start reaching 63 for no loss with openers Murali Vijay (25 not out) and Gautam Gambhir (28 not out) at the crease Murali Vijay and Gautam Gambhir gave India a steady start on Day 2 of 1st Test AP England’s first innings total was their third-highest ever in this country showing their batsmen were in total control against Indian spinners especially Ravichandran Ashwin who conceded 167 runs in 46 overs taking only two wickets Amit Mishra fared no better having being hit for 98 runs in 233 overs India still need 275 more runs to avoid following on on a track showing increasing signs of wear and tear after its easy-paced nature on day one yesterday The hosts also trailed the visitors by a massive 474 runs with all ten wickets in hand going into day three on Friday Both faced testing spells of fast bowling and probing spin bowling to remain unbeaten for carrying on the daunting task faced by the home team Vijay had faced 70 balls striking four fours – three of which came in one over of Stuart Broad Gambhir playing his second Test on the trot after his recall from hibernation struck four fours in his 68-ball knock as they batted out the shortened last session of play Earlier New Zealand-born England all rounder Ben Stokes became the third century maker in the visitors’ first innings after Joe Root on Wednesday and Moeen Ali on Thursday morning The tourists in particular Stokes who made an attacking 128 which was the innings highest score batted right down the order to post the massive total before being all out to end the extended session two England’s total revolved mainly around Root’s classical foundation-laying 124 on day one Ali’s attractive knock of 117 the enterprising hundred by Stokes against a listless Indian bowling attack that was plundered for a massive 139 runs in 30 overs in the pre-lunch period Only the 652 made in 1984-85 in Chennai and 559 for 8 declared at Kanpur repeat Kanpur made way back in 1963-64 topped the total raised by England in this city hosting its first-ever Test This was also the first instance after 2009 by Sri Lanka in Motera that three visiting team’s players triple digit scores Stokes who struck 2 sixes and 13 fours in his 235-ball knock departed just before the scheduled tea interval and England lost their last wicket that of Zafar Ansari for 32 during the extended second session to be all out after posting their third-best innings total in India Amit Mishra trapped Ansari leg before on the sweep shot to bring the innings to a close after England had batted for nearly ten-and-a-half hours Earlier the Indian bowlers appeared clueless on how to dismiss the left-handed Stokes who was finally out to a diving catch to his right by wicket keeper Wriddhiman Saha off Umesh Yadav Saha had earlier put down Stokes in successive overs of Yadav in his second spell when the batsman on 60 and 61 respectively India had let off rival captain Alastair Cook debutant Haseeb Hameed and Ali on Wednesday In the morning session the visitors scored at will after England resumed at last evening’s score of 311 for four and advanced to 450 for six The batsmen out before lunch were overnight unbeaten batsman Ali who duly completed his career’s fourth Test century after being one short of the landmark at stumps on day one and Jonny Bairstow who made a quickfire 46 off 57 balls Both wickets were claimed by pace bowlers – Shami and Yadav Ali was out in a somewhat fortuitous manner for the home side that looked bereft of ideas as he shouldered arms to an angled-in ball from Shami and lost his off stump Wicketkeeper Bairstow chased a wide ball from Yadav and was caught behind low down by Saha to his right after he had grassed two catches off Stokes in successive overs from the same bowler earlier Stokes and Bairstow put on a brisk stand of 99 for the sixth wicket in just 80 minutes and 127 balls against some mediocre bowling performance before the latter got out chasing a wide ball Ali the second century maker in the innings after No 3 batsman Root on Wednesday batted for just over four-and-a-half hours and struck 13 fours Ali who added 179 runs for the fourth wicket with Root on Wednesday put on a further 62 runs in 87 minutes and 113 balls with the left-handed Stokes for the fifth wicket Post lunch India did manage to control the run flow and also grabbed two quick wickets through the left-arm spin of Ravindra Jadeja who had bowled just one over late in the first session before England pressed on further to grind the home team’s insipid attack The local boy struck in the very first over after resumption of play when he had Chris Woakes poking at a wide ball and edging to wicketkeeper Saha after the addition of just one run to the lunch score of 450 Jadeja was into his wicket taking act again six overs thereon to send back Adil Rashid who was caught at mid-on by Yadav and India appeared to have a good chance to restrict England under 500 at the fall of the eighth wicket at 465 This was not to be as the New Zealand-born Stokes not only completed his century after carrying on from his lunch score of 84 to become the England innings’ third centurion after Root and Ali but also added 62 runs for the ninth wicket with Ansari to take the score past the 500 mark The 25-year-old Stokes who was not afraid to come down the wicket to the spinners completed the fourth century of his career with a four off Jadeja his 12th of the innings added to one six in 222 minutes and 173 balls Also inexplicably Jadeja did not get to bowl his left-arm slow stuff till 15 minutes to lunch by which time 26 overs had been gone by in the morning He was then replaced after one over before resuming his bowling at the start of session two The left-arm spinner emerged the most impressive bowler with figures of 3 for 86 while premier spinner Ashwin was the most expensive and gave away 167 runs for his two wickets after bowling 46 overs Speedsters Mohammed Shami (2 for 65) and Yadav (2 for 112) got among the wickets while leg spinner Mishra got the final wicket to fall and gave away 98 runs Rahul Gandhi attended an event at Shaheed Veer Bhagatsingh auditorium in Nikol Ahmedabad on Friday The event was called Gyaan Adhikaar Sabha The purpose of the event was to meet people from the field of education in order to inform the “Gurus” about what reforms Congress plans to bring if it comes to power Along with Rahul the sabha was attended by Ahmed Patel Ashok Gehlot and Bharatsingh Solanki Rahul was running two hours behind the schedule But once he arrived there wasn’t a long wait for the members of audience who were waiting to hear his speech Rahul immediately announced that he hadn’t come for the event to make people listen to him Rather he was there to listen to people He also added “I want to understand the challenges and struggle of the teacher’s community in Gujarat" Rahul Gandhi said Congress will focus on education and healthcare Image acquired by Firstpost “When Congress will come to power we will give utmost importance to education and healthcare I feel that for the past 22 years it has been neglected and it has been privatised in wholesale” he said He added that by calling it privatisation he is putting it politely because in reality it is taking money from the public’s pocket Rahul also spoke about the MGNREGA scheme implemented by Congress and pointed out the difference between the ideologies of the two parties by comparing the MNGREGA scheme to the investment done by BJP government in Tata Nano plant He said “The amount of money (Rs 33000 crore) that we invested in MNGREGA to provide employment to crores of people in rural regions the same amount was put in by BJP government in the Tata nano plant project” Rahul also talked about how an economist spoke to him about the economic growth in rural areas and gave the credit of development to MNGREGA Smiling at the audience Rahul asked “Does anyone of you drive Nano” The audience burst into laughter and unanimously gave a negative answer Enjoying the audience’s response Rahul informed the audience that spotting a Nano anywhere has become his hobby On a serious note he later said "I believe if the same amount of money was used for education health care or was given to small scale and medium scale businesses Gujarat would have benefited” “And this is only me talking of one project of one businessman You have been subjected to such habits for the past 22 years” He questioned the ruling government about the Rs 33000 crore and added that there should at least be some accountability of that kind of money Rahul also said “I had recently visited Surat and observed that everything is made in China Look at your cellphones They too are made in china If that kind of money was invested in the small and medium scale business in Surat it would all have been made in India” “Demonetisation and GST (Gabbar Singh Tax) has slowed and even closed down businesses in Gujarat" claimed Rahul Taking a dig at Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah Rahul said “Gujarat has so many business but one businessman changes Rs 50000 to Rs 800000000 in a year and he is the son of party president” Addressing the delay in starting the Winter Session in Parliament Rahul said that Congress wants to question the government about Jay Shah but Modi will not allow the Parliament to sit in session before Gujarat

first time I voted was in 1977 In the historic post-Emergency Lok Sabha elections that Indira Gandhi had decided to go in for deluded by intelligence agencies that her wish was still the country’s command It was hugely exciting standing in a long snaking queue for well over an hour no one laughing or joking eyes shuttered everyone a closed book; it did not feel like a festival at all Of course like most of India I voted against the Congress and roamed the streets of Kolkata joyously with neighbourhood friends at 2 in the morning when the results were announced over the radio that not just her party but even Indira Gandhi herself and her bilious son Sanjay had been defeated and quite ignominiously I have never voted for the Congress since never ever till this afternoon Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and former West Bengal Chief Minister and CPIM leader Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee at a joint campaign rally in Kolkata on Wednesday PTI I could have voted in the 1971 Lok Sabha elections too as I had already reached the voting age 21 in those days but I was out of the country then as I was for the 1972 assembly elections in West Bengal But I wouldn’t have voted for the Congress even if I had been around Their track record in this state was not inspiring to say the least The 60s had ended with two elected non-Congress governments in Bengal albeit a hodge-podge of unlike-minded parties and inexperienced in governance to boot being brought down by the shenanigans of Delhi under the thumb of Indira Gandhi The start of the 70s witnessed the ruthless extermination of bright young firebrands who dared to dream better known as the Naxalites first under President’s rule and then by the government of Siddhartha Sankar Ray one of Indira Gandhi’s henchmen who would go on to become one of the architects of the Emergency in a few years but who made his mark by stealing the 1972 elections in Bengal and pioneering the tradition of rigging and poll violence that still plague this state Since then there have been so many elections routinely dutifully every five years or so and I have voted or not depending on whether I was in town or felt enthused enough to go and stand in line For instance the 1987 assembly elections the Left’s ideological erosion was well under way but Rajiv Gandhi came and talked of Calcutta being a dying city and retiring the ageing Jyoti Basu and like many Bengalis my ‘asmita’ was hurt I went and voted against the Congress with vengeance The Left continued in its merry unwholesome ways Gradually the Congress faded away the Trinamool emerged Then it happened At last in 2011 The Left was booted out Mamata Banerjee and her Trinamool party or TMC was voted in No tears were shed for the dear departed all hopes were vested in the newcomer Five years down the line we are having to choose again to be with Mamata Banerjee or not And I chose not to Emphatically Instead I voted for a Congress candidate about whom I really know nothing In the heart of south Kolkata ours is a traditionally Congress constituency Trinamool in recent years The Left has never won from here except in 1977 So it was no great wrench for the CPM to give up this seat to the Congress in their unofficial seat adjustment or alliance or jote call it what you will Latterly the BJP has begun making inroads winning a sizeable chunk of the votes in the 2014 elections taking everyone including the candidate (now the governor of Tripura) by surprise But then voting for the Hindutva brigade is just not an option for me Also with the BJP’s prospects of winning being virtually nil voting for it would really mean voting for the TMC And that simply cannot be To me Mamata Banerjee stands for all that is wrong with Bengal’s polity today The way she runs the party (complete autocracy bringing in its wake utmost sycophancy); her I-am-the-state attitude (so that all the roads bridges flyovers subsidised rice etc in fact all welfare programmes are gifts from “Didi” emasculating local self-governments from panchayats upwards); the use of government funds to further narrow political objectives (like donating money to local boys’ clubs who are then deployed for TMC’s benefit so much so that the Election Commission has had to take the unusual step of curbing their activities during this election); her give-them-bread-and-circus mindset (doling out a plethora of government handouts coupled with a surfeit of trumped of fairs and festivals diverting attention from the lack of a long-term solution to job creation that inevitably leads to cancerous growths like the syndicate raj); her holier-than-thou attitude (making much of wearing white cotton saris and rubber flip-flops which are supposed to seal her claims to be a symbol of honesty even while scams and scandals envelope her followers); claiming to have brought about a change in the state’s political culture despite the hooliganism unleashed by her hangers-on during election time or otherwise – the list can be very long indeed So Ashutosh Chatterjee the faceless Congress candidate from our constituency be it Calling him lightweight would be an understatement No one even saw him campaigning His camp office near the polling booth was a mere apology of one with one red flag and two not-so-young men braving the sun and nary a Congress flag in sight And he is battling Sovondeb Chatterjee TMC’s sitting MLA who had himself once spoken out against the growing power of the thugs in his party only to be silenced forthwith but seen as a decent man nevertheless It would have been easier of course if I had been living in say Behala East where my vote would have gone to Ambikesh Mahapatra the Jadavpur University professor who was jailed by Mamata Banerjee’s police for forwarding a cartoon featuring the chief minister and her then righthand man Mukul Roy Pitted against the mayor of Kolkata Sovon Chatterjee who plays a stellar role in the Narada News videos Mahapatra makes the choice so stark But then it doesn’t really matter who the candidate is As Mamata Banerjee herself has said forget who is standing from where “I am the candidate in all 294 constituencies” True the Left-Congress alliance is no great panacea But it is certainly a lesser evil Fascism saps at our very moral fibre and that is what Mamata Banerjee represents: undiluted unvarnished fascism Not unlike India under Indira Gandhi in the Seventies with the saving grace that Mamata Banerjee’s writ does not run beyond the borders of Bengal But within the state there will be more of the same if our Didi is returned to power We were of course resigned to our fate even a few months back But the Left-Congress alliance which had seemed such an unlikely proposition then has surprisingly been gaining strength as the various phases of the election have unfolded Sans organisation sans resources sans muscle power (even the suitably dubbed “historic” meeting where Congress’s Rahul Gandhi and CPM’s Buddhadev Bhattacharya were framed within one ungainly garland saw only a modest turnout no crowds bussed in from all parts of the state no freebies nothing) the alliance seems to be a reflection of the spontaneous sentiments of people like me Gathering courage from each other taking hesitant steps towards a dream we had not dared to dream even when the elections were announced If the unthinkable really does happen on the 19th of May Bengal will win handsomely No one will dare take the Bengali voter for granted again Unlike say Kerala or Tamil Nadu or most other states we have a history of giving excessively long ropes to our governments The rope may now be cut short to a five-year term only Above all it will show that you just can’t buy people up by showering largesse without any permanent solution to their ills a la Mamata Banerjee If not – it’ll be long uphill road ahead Written by PTI | Mumbai | Published: June 2 2013 1:09 pm Related News

Murray was forced to save seven set points in an extraordinary opening tie-break before clinching a 7-6 (11/9) 7-5 win in just under two hours (Source: AP) Top News Andy Murray closed to within one victory of becoming the world’s top-ranked player for the first time after defeating Tomas Berdych in the Paris Masters quarter-finals Marin Cilic had earlier dumped out a struggling Novak Djokovic to pave the way for Murray to supplant the Serb at the top But Murray was forced to save seven set points in an extraordinary opening tie-break before clinching a 7-6 (11/9) 7-5 win in just under two hours The Briton will meet Milos Raonic in semi-finals knowing that a victory will move him above Djokovic who has been on top of the world rankings for 122 weeks “Before the match there were a few more nerves maybe than there was earlier in the week But once I got out there I didn’t feel any different to any other match” said Murray “If it happens this week great But if not I’m not putting any extra pressure on myself this week because I still think I have an opportunity to do it in the future “But obviously I’d love to do it tomorrow if I can” Neither Murray nor Berdych showed any signs of fragility as the first set went on serve but the wheels fell off in spectacular fashion for the Czech after he raced 6-1 ahead in the tie-break Murray chalked up six straight points to earn a set point of his own with Berdych then squandering two more before the second seed finally edged ahead He broke Berdych to start the second set and looked on course to wrap things up but a lapse at 5-4 saw him require a second chance Berdych who needed to reach the last four to stay in the race for the Tour Finals in London handed him that opportunity by again losing his serve with Murray sealing it on his fourth match point Cilic breaks duck Cilic had lost all 14 previous meetings with Djokovic but snapped that miserable run with a 6-4 7-6 (7/2) victory Djokovic the record four-time champion arrived in Paris needing to reach the final to ensure he remained ahead of a rapidly approaching Murray But the Serb’s bid to register a fourth straight title in the French capital ended abruptly as an improbable escape act fizzled out against an in-form Cilic “Credit to Marin and congratulations He definitely played better today and he deserved to win” said 29-year-old Djokovic “I wasn’t on the level that I could have been on Obviously there are things I could have done better And just in important moments I wasn’t able to deliver” Ninth seed Cilic who on Thursday became the seventh London qualifier broke immediately to signal his intent against a player who had totally dominated him in his career In typical fashion Djokovic then hit back straight away to level but Cilic’s confidence was undimmed and the Croat capitalised on a shaky service game from his opponent at 5-4 to grab the opening set Former US Open champion Cilic threatened again early in the second but Djokovic landed a crucial breakthrough at 4-all to serve for the set The top seed uncharacteristically gifted the break back though after a pair of costly double faults and Cilic had him on the ropes as two match points passed by at 6-5 on a faltering Djokovic serve There was to be no remarkable recovery either for Djokovic as Cilic took charge in the tie-break and closed out a famous win at the fourth attempt

Raju Shetti who led the recent farmers’ agitation in the state With inputs fromagencies By: Express News Service | Published: August 1 2014 12:16 am Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made much of MyGov a new portal for citizens to contribute ideas for governance It is intended to “bridge the gulf between people and government” and make public participation an ongoing affair the PMO claims Meanwhile the Congress which has been more wary about technology and social media is also working on an intra-party online platform ostensibly to bring “greater transparency and accountability” Both these efforts are unobjectionable but they make a fetish out of technology and assume that the mere fact of existing online somehow furthers transparency and participation The internet has some obvious affordances — it makes it easier to coordinate mass action to micro-target messages to receive feedback and spread information Social media is highly useful for political parties for messaging as well as mobilising But apart from organisational ease there is no inherent social virtue or progressive impulse in the use of a website or social media platform Positive change depends on social and institutional environments An apparently centralised Modi government where decision-making seems to be tightly streamlined is unlikely to get its direction from the lightbulb ideas on MyGov Running an open government requires much more — it requires proactively making the government’s information available While the UPA’s datagovin aimed to open up ministry information it was clunky and inaccessible to all but the most dedicated users While the idea of crowdsourcing bright ideas for governance is positive its effects will have to be seen to be believed The Congress website — the latest attempt after flops like Khidki and Pehchaan — is less ambitious focused only on the youth wing of the party While it may be a good way for party workers to keep each other informed the spin about “transparency and accountability” falls flat in a context where the power structures that govern participation and choice between inputs remain unchanged There is nothing revolutionary about this plan — it is merely an online bulletin board The rituals of open information and feedback can often be a strategic cover for self-willed leadership The Congress cannot hope to compensate for the lack of inner-party democracy with the sound of inner-party chatter In other words by itself a website is just a website not a harbinger of change For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

created and was also nurtured by As BS Yeddyurappa moves into the endgame of his battle from within the BJPthe focus will beamong other thingson the damage he can cause his former colleagues in the party While that will no doubt make for interesting readingthe more serious concern should be the damage his brand of politics has caused Karnataka And high on this list would be the effects the political change he led has had on Bangalore Yeddyurappas politics in recent years has been built around two longer-term trends in Karnataka: decentralisation and privatisation of patronage The state has been a pioneer in decentralisationwith the process gaining momentum in the 1980swell before the constitutional amendments of 1992 This process created the platform for a number of aspiringand often ruthlessly ambitiouslocal politicians In the early years of this decentralisationthese politicians grew under the umbrella of state-level leaders belonging to one national party or the other They provided the grassroots network for state patronage provided by the ruling party But as the competition among these grassroots politicians grewit was not possible for any party to absorb all of them Those who failed to get into the networks of state-level leaders had to find their own resources to provide patronage to their constituents With the Reddy brothers in Bellary showing the waythese aspiring local politicians chose to privatise state resources they came into contact withbeginning with government transport and going up to the funds for state schemes These methods were necessarily illegalbut that was not a deterrent By the turn of the centurythe number of corrupt local leaders was so large that they could not all be accommodated in the Congress and the Janata Dal At this time Yeddyurappa was the head of a still-ideological BJP He had spent a lifetime trying to spread Hindutva with only occasional success He then decided to merge the ideological BJP with the non-ideological needs of the localallegedly corrupt politicians In the processhe seemed willing to go further in wooing ethically ambivalent local leaders than any other politician This was not only in terms of their financial dealingsbut also their larger worldview When two BJP ministers were caught viewing pornography in the state assemblyYeddyurappa was not without sympathy for their cause The emergence of local politicians willing to generate resources for patronage through fair means or foul had its impact on Bangalore as well As the city expanded rapidly after 1970it took over the lands of a large number of villages In the initial decadesthis was a centralised process with the Bangalore Development Authority taking over agricultural land and then selling sites at much higher prices The spectacular spurt in land prices made the BDA an important point of state patronage The phenomenon of state-level politicians making economic and political gains by taking over the land owned by families in villages for generations was bound to generate resistance And in a more decentralised polity this resistance could not be ignored By the 1990sthe BDA began to lose much of its authorityto be replaced by farmers converting their land into layouts This was originally meant to be a well-regulated processwith clearances needed at several stages But the landowners who created new layouts found that working within the political environment of 21st-century Bangalore made it quite unnecessary to scrupulously follow norms Construction norms were ignored when building to meet the growing housing demand They did not hesitate to build on public land and even on what were meant to be drains The tendency to ignore norms proved to be quite contagious One administrator even estimated that 95 per cent of buildings in Bangalore had broken one norm or the other And the political solution has been to quite simply reduce this figure by regularising the irregular Once the bill that has been prepared for this purpose is passedit will consolidate the widespread belief in Bangalore that fools follow norms while the wise profit from breaking them In the midst of this growing acceptance of irregularitythe political class built an even more effective instrument of private resource generation from public projects More land would be notified for major projects than was necessary When the project took offthe value of that land would increase manifold Selected plots within that land would then be de-notified for a price Since the de-notified land would depend on the ability and willingness of the original landowner to share the spoilsit added to the haphazard pattern of land acquired for infrastructure The problem with this polity is not just an ethical one The irregularities in construction are having their impact on drainage in the city Bangalore now floods at the first downpour The larger ambience of irregularity also makes it impossible to get citizens to follow basic civic practices As Bangaloreans refuse to segregate their waste and local politicians from nearby villages ensure there will be no landfills in their vicinitygarbage has been iling up
