interesting character in Tamil Nadu politics Although he doesn’t boast of the long political history of the Dravidian giants the DMK and the AIADMK his DMDK is the third most important party in the state Justifiably he is the most sought after ally among the opposition parties File image of actor-turned politician Vijayakanth The BJP always wanted him on their side and had even sent Union Minister Prakash Javadekar to Chennai twice to get Vijayakanth on its side but the latter played hardball and refused to commit While Javadekar met with him in February raising the BJP’s hopes for an alliance a week later he evaded the minister when he came down again The BJP is still hopeful even as Vijayakanth is camping in Delhi with his men Also waiting for his return is former chief minister and a veteran of many elections M Karunanidhi of DMK His alliance with the Congress is far too weak to take on Jayalalithaa and hence he also wants the Captain on his side Apparently the latter is more favourably disposed towards Karuna but hasn’t committed yet The state is in fact keen to know who are the leaders Vijayakanth is meeting in Delhi – the BJP or the Congress It’s not just the BJP or the DMK that’s desperately wooing Vijayakanth MDMK’s Vaiko who has tied with Dalit party VCK and the Left is also hopeful that the actor-politician will not disappoint him But among his suitors the most certain is Karunanidhi who told the media in Chennai on Tuesday that Vijaykanth will ultimately walk into this camp And he is probably right because neither the BJP nor the MDMK-VCK-Left front has the muscle to take on the AIADMK The contest is certainly going to be multi-cornered and his only chance is with the DMK which has already tied up with the Congress Moreover the BJP might join the AIADMK camp at the last minute Its strange vote-share is what makes the DMDK attractive to the opposition parties and is often analysed both in favour of and against Vijayakanth In 2006 when his party contested the assembly elections first time it polled about 10 percent of the total votes In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections the party fielded candidates in all the 39 constituencies and improved the total number of votes polled and pushed up its vote-share to 103 percent These two performance were remarkable for a new party which evidently had no major political strategy The AIDMK was obviously impressed and took it to its fold in 2011 assembly elections which led to a real windfall The party won 29 seats and even become the official opposition party Relationship with Jaya soured soon and in 2014 it joined the NDA and contested in 14 Lok Sabha constituencies Commensurate with the number of seats contested its vote-share slid to 51 percent Although Jaya claimed that the DMDK owed its success solely to her party in 2011 what cannot be ignored is that the overall support base of Vijayakanth appears to be stable Whether his party contested 236 assembly seats in 2006 or 41 in 2011 the total number of votes remained more or less the same That he polled more than 10 percent votes on his own when he contested all the Lok Sabha seats in 2009 certainly shows that he has consistent support base across the state That on both the occasions when the DMDK contested in all the constituencies it polled about 10 percent votes is the most reliable indicator of Vijaykanth’s electoral presence On the other two occasion he was in alliance and had contested only 41 (assembly in 2011) and 14 (Lok Sabha in 2014) seats respectively Therefore unless there is a major erosion the more reliable vote-share for the DMDK is about 10 percent and that’s what makes the party a hot property although some analysts believe that his following is more hype than real For the DMK although it hasn’t won any seats in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections the number of votes hasn’t come down In fact it has improved marginally compared to the 2006 and 2011 elections during which its vote-shares were about 26 percent and 23 percent respectively When combined with the votes of DMDK and the Congress its chances do appear stronger particularly if the AIADMK contests alone Reportedly the DMDK is bargaining hard for a share of power in the government which both the Dravidian parties have been overprotective about The DMK although in an acutely desperate situation doesn’t want Vijayakanth and his people to become ministers in its government Karuna is playing it hard because he knows that other than the DMK Vijayakanth’s alliance-options are practically zilch Tying up with the BJP or the MDMK-VCK-Left front is just a waste of its resources That’s what makes Karuna confident that “the fruit will ultimately fall in the milk” as he said proverbially on Tuesday It doesn’t matter that he and his family were the sole targets of Vijayakanth’s vituperation in 2011 With the Congress and the DMDK on its side the DMK does have some chance However if the AIADMK joins hands with the BJP at the last minute it could be a whitewash New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party Sunday termed the Election Commission’s statement on EVM tampering "unfortunate" The EC has asked the party to file an election petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court if it wanted to verify the votes cast in the Punjab Assembly polls with the paper trail data The party claimed that the alleged EVM malfunctioning incident in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhind district where the VVPAT-enabled electronic voting machines printed the BJP’s poll symbol irrespective of the button pressed during a mock trial had made it clear that the EVMs were not tamper-proof A file photo of polling staff making preparations for the Assembly Elections in Punjab that concluded in February 2017 PTI "It is unfortunate that instead of taking due action the Election Commission is issuing political statements on the issue of EVM tampering. "The incident (of Bhind) shook the faith of millions of Indian voters in the impartiality of the EC and the entire process of elections using EVMs" AAP said in a statement This came in response to the EC’s letter in which the poll watchdog said it was for the AAP "to introspect as to why your party could not perform as per your expectations and it is unfair on your part to attribute the unsatisfactory poll performance of your party to the alleged tamper-ability of EVMs" "The incident of Bhind has shown that the EC has completely failed in its duty to protect the EVMs and the integrity of the election process and therefore failed in fulfilling its constitutional obligation of conducting free and fair elections" the AAP said urging the commission to take immediate action in this regard "Turning a blind eye to the shocking reports trickling in from Uttar Pradesh Maharashtra Punjab and now Madhya Pradesh would serve no purpose and would only erode the credibility of the EC" it added The poll watchdog said after the declaration of election results the only option available to verify the data of votes cast is filing an election petition before the High Court concerned The AAP had alleged that the poll authorities in Punjab had refused to accept its demand to tally the election results with paper trail audit The party had moved the EC over the reliability of EVMs and the results of the recently-concluded Punjab polls The AAP won 20 of the 117 seats in the Punjab polls The Congress won 77 seats to wrest power from the SAD-BJP combine Narendra Modi’s charge of Pakistani interference in Gujarat election is little more than political gamesmanship aimed at putting the Congress under pressure From the details that have emerged it seems likely that Congress leaders schmoozing with guests from Pakistan at host Mani Shankar Aiyar’s residence last Wednesday had bilateral relationship and Kashmir on the menu along with the dinner Secretive though the meeting was and notwithstanding Congress’ curious behaviour around it there was probably no grand Pakistani conspiracy to meddle in India’s electoral process Modi has been trying to own the ‘nationalism’ space and in Congress’ decision to hold a clandestine meeting with Pakistani diplomats bang in the middle of an Assembly election he saw an opportunity to press home the advantage That said Manmohan Singh needs to come down from his pedestal His acts of pious outrage are becoming a little too common as are his indiscretions Since he has the habit of taking himself too seriously the former prime minister needs to be reminded that this is a democracy and no one is above reproach File image of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh PTI The indignant outrage that marks Singh’s press statement cannot hide the fact that he has shown poor judgement on several counts in attending a Track 2 diplomatic effort at the residence of Aiyar an individual who sees himself as a supra-Constitutional figure above all arms of the state One unlike the Indian journalists and diplomats who had attended the undeclared dinner meeting Singh isn’t just a private citizen but a former prime minister He remains bound by the oath of secrecy and therefore his presence lent the ‘private dinner meeting’ a gravitas and legitimacy which otherwise would have been just another unofficial diplomatic soiree Given the fact that a serving Pakistan high commissioner was present and bilateral relationship was scheduled as an agenda Singh clearly stepped out of his line in holding quasi-official talks with Pakistan government representatives in contravention of India’s policy of not talking to the enemy state unless it stops exporting terror to India Singh’s act of indiscretion not only sends a wrong message to Pakistan but also undermines India’s stand and undoes the government’s efforts in trying to diplomatically isolate Islamabad Instead of seeking an apology the former prime minister must clarify the reasons behind his decision to attend the meeting The BJP has been quick to point out that Opposition parties are also part of the state apparatus and as members of the Opposition they had followed strictly the stand taken by the government of the day "Senior Congress leaders must desist from such misadventure and come out with detailed facts on what transpired in that meeting and what was the necessity of having it under present circumstances Yesterday they were in denial about it and today instead of accepting it as a misadventure they are trying to blame those raising the issue When we were in the opposition too we have followed the government’s policy in this regard" Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told the media in a day of multiple news conferences by both parties Two before engaging with representatives of a terrorist state bypassing the official channels of communication the former prime minister should have kept the government in the loop It isn’t clear whether Singh had done so It is poor defence to say that former Pakistan foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri was given a visa and therefore the government was aware of the modalities of the meeting Dr Manmohan Singh shows the ‘mirror of truth’ and gives a ‘reality check’ to Prime Minister Modi who has been driven by canards & false propaganda in face of imminent defeat in Gujarat pictwittercom/QLQiPQDHxI — Randeep S Surjewala (@rssurjewala) December 11 2017 Singh himself admits that India-Pakistan relations were discussed His undeclared presence raises several troubling questions that cannot be deflected on the pretext of getting "pained and anguished" Three Singh’s dishonest protestations betray a logical fallacy He accuses Modi of trying to spread "falsehood and canards" and for his "insatiable desire to tarnish every Constitutional office including that of a former Prime Minister and Army Chief" After denying that such a meeting had actually taken place Congress later clarified that it was merely a dinner and wanted to know "since when was this rule put in place that one has to seek permission from the government to host or attend a dinner" If we go by Congress’ contention that it was merely a "social dinner" attended by private citizens Singh stands deprived of his pretentiousness that he is a holder of a Constitutional office and therefore his charge of Modi "tarnishing" such offices is absurd After all Singh is a former prime minister not the incumbent at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg If however we take Singh’s argument that he is indeed the holder of high office and Modi has made a cardinal error in sullying him and his position the question that then arises is what business does the holder of a ‘Constitutional office’ have in attending a meeting with representatives of Pakistan government in direct breach of protocol Did Indian citizens vote out Congress and elect BJP so that aformer prime minister may set policy issues Who gave Singh and his party the authority to violate India’s stated position The optics of a former prime minister holding a clandestine meeting with actors of an enemy state that has fought three wars with India and continues to foment terror inside our borders aren’t nice and that too in the middle of an important election in a border state Singh’s fulminations are useless So are his arguments of trying to equate undeclared Track 2 diplomatic rendezvous with Modi’s official meeting with Nawaz Sharif in Lahore Modi went there as the prime minister of India ex-PM Singh’s effort is an undeclared unsanctioned one Finally Congress’s defence is based entirely on the integrity of Singh’s character as if that alone addresses all questions surrounding the irresponsible act Singh too tries to suggest that his track record of public service is enough to place him beyond scrutiny One isn’t sure whether an unqualified certificate of integrity can be issued against aformer prime minister who presided over some of India’s greatest scams Congress may issue such certificates at will and Singh may delude himself into taking those seriously For the rest of the country Singh’s ‘personal integrity’ is an overplayed card Jabalpur:The Madhya Pradesh High Court has served notices to the chief secretary the Director General of Police and others on the Bhopal gangrape victim’s medical report that apparently had glaring errors Chief Justice Hemant Gupta issued the notices on Saturday after taking suo motu cognisance of newspaper reports about the medical document and treating them as a public interest litigation (PIL) High Court Registrar General Mohammed Fahim Anwar told PTIon Saturday over the phone He posted the matter on 13 November Anwar said The medical examination report of the rape victim stated that the sexual act was committed "with her consent and will" triggering widespread outrage two days ago At one place the report prepared by the doctors of the Sultania Lady Hospital termed the 19-year-old woman as an "accused" rather than "victim" Representational image Reuters Notwithstanding the doctors’ claim of the errors having been committed "inadvertently" the Bhopal divisional commissioner had served notices to them two days ago According to police though the report had errors it confirmed that the woman was raped and injuries were found in her private parts The woman was allegedly raped by four men for almost three hours near the railway tracks in Bhopal when she was returning home after attending a coaching class on 31October night "The doctors had written in the examination report that physical relation was established ‘with her consent and will’ The report also mentioned the ‘victim’ as an ‘accused’ at one place" the police said When the police had sought clarification the doctors concerned gave a (written) clarification that the word "with" was inadvertently used instead of ‘without’ The other error terming the victim as an accused at one place was also rectified by the doctors in the clarification the police added They said the errors in the report were "insignificant" as these were made in the column for recording the details of the incident Two doctors Khushbhu Gajbhiye and Sanyogita had been slapped show-cause notices seeking their replies within three days Last week the government suspended five policemen for their alleged negligence which led to a delay in registering the offence Two senior police officers the Inspector General of Police Bhopal range and SP concerned of the Government Railway Police were
