As one difference after another unfoldedthe play of politics charted its own course The party was forced to change its chief minister last year and a split in the party was openly visible The events of the last few days are a clear reflection of the widening gulf within the party between the supporters of former CM BS Yeddyurappa and those against him The government and governance in the state seem to be in a hopeless drift The ruling party faces a situation in which its former CM is openly attacking his hand-picked successor The central leadership does not wish to precipitate matters by taking any drastic action The cynic would aver that it is not a question of not wanting to but of not being able to take decisive steps A CM has to run the government with a set of colleagues who are openly opposed to his leadership This clearly reflects the state of affairs in the ruling party Leaders seem to be getting away with patently anti-party statements and activities Last yearafter agonisingly long negotiationsthe BJP central leadership was able to secure the resignation of Yeddyurappa The former CM ensured that a person of his choice succeeded him The council of ministers remained largely unchanged The new CMSadananda Gowdapreferred not to contest a direct election to enter the legislative assembly but to take the legislative council route This weakened his political clout within the party Under his leadershipthe party lost a crucial assembly by-election and he was not able to ensure that the Lok Sabha seat he vacated was retained by the party The new CM gradually distanced himself from his mentor and this led to a realignment of forces within the party Two camps clearly emerged the pro-Yeddyurappa camp and the others A helpless central leadership was unable to stem the infighting With the state assembly elections due in a yearthe BJP faces an uphill task Yeddyurappa seems keen to provoke the BJP leadership to take action against him so that he can play the political martyr in the next assembly polls His supporters seem unsure as to how far they can push their dissidence Yeddyurappa is aware that his support amongst legislators will dwindle dramatically if he chooses to leave the party As a resultmany of the present moves by the Yeddyurappa camp are aimed at ensuring the protection of their interests within the party Their leaderhoweverseems to be getting increasingly impatient and is spoiling for a political fight Howeverthe history of Karnatakas electoral politics shows that the electorate has never favoured a third force The CMmeanwhilefinds himself in the unenviable position of having to seek the support of the party central leadership for any move It seems clear that in the run-up to the electionsthis rift within the party will only widen Factionalism is now out in the open There is no evidence of any effort by the central leadership to bring together the two factions and project a picture of unity The party seems reconciled to making the best of one more year in power Being a ruling partyit allows for the distribution of spoils of office Strategising for the next election can surely wait The party seems to have neither the time nor the inclination to think of the next election Day-to-day survival seems to be top priority The Congress clearly senses an advantage in the coming assembly polls Given the state of the BJP and the record of its governmentit could well be a political climate that will work to their advantage Howeverthe record of the Congress in Karnataka shows that it has the skill of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory In the pastit has often managed to defeat itself While the party has made a concerted effort to demonstrate a show of unitythis has still to be reflected in the behaviour of its senior leaders There are too many claimants for a chief ministership after an election that is yet to be won Given the trend across the countryit may be a good idea for the Congress to declare its chief ministerial candidate and get the party solidly behind that leader In the pastwhen the high command declared its chief ministerial candidatethe campagin acquired clear direction and there was visible enthusiasm among party workers It would give them an advantage in preparation for the polls The JD(S) is watching from the sidelines and hoping to fish in the troubled political waters Their strategy seems to be to hope for an assembly next year where no party has a clear majority and their numbers in the House allow them to play the kingmaker In the run-up to the assembly pollsthe moves made by major political players will be crucial in deciding and defining the electoral verdict The state is bound to witness a year of hecticpulsating and riveting political activity The writer is

rahega Lalu Probably that’s a passe and if today Bihar Assembly elections are to be talked about it is all about an engineering graduate who now holds the reins of Bihar Yes you guessed it right it is the incumbent Chief Minister Nitish Kumar without whose name hardly an election chat took place this time True between 2005-15 he brought out Bihar extensively if not completely from the dungeon of jungle raj that once ruled supreme during the heydays of Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi But today the fabled bete noire in Bihar’s political history between Lalu and Prasad is now another epitome of on-the-job friendship Join us as we ask Nitish Kumar questions on Twitter Image courtesy: PTI Nitish Kumar’s tiff with the then NDA’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi took everyone by surprise He was severely criticised for it and resigned as CM in May 2014 after JD(U)’s poor performance in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections However he was back as Bihar CM after a political crisis in the state in February 2015 when the then chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi one of Nitish’s close aides in JD(U) went against him and refused to resign as CM Eventually though Manjhi did have to resign and was also expelled from the party Whether it is Nitish Kumar allying with former bitter rival and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav to his claims that the Modi government is trying to create communal divide in the country the media just cannot get enough of Nitish And this fact has not changed even when the Bihar Assembly polls are underway Nitish Kumar was in the media spotlight when he and Lalu Prasad used the Patel agitation row to counter BJP’s ‘jungle raj 20’ and allege that the saffron party was trying to abolish reservation He was in the news when the JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance in Bihar attacked the BJP government over the Dadri killing and alleged that the Modi government had remained silent and the prime minister had not made a strong enough statement in the wake of the incident Nitish also received criticism when a video emerged showing Awadhesh Prasad Kushwaha former minister for urban development in Bihar allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 4 lakh from a ‘Bombay-based businessman’ at his residence Political and personal mud-slinging flew wildly during the run up to the Bihar Assembly polls and continued even during the elections Not surprisingly no mercy was shown and no words were minced to destroy the opposition Whether it is PM Modi saying Nitish betrayed Jayaprakash Narayan by joining hands with Congress and RJD and referring to the three parties of the grand secular alliance in Bihar as the ‘three idiots’ or the BJP releasing a video showing Nitish meeting a tantrik to seek his blessings the heat has often been on Nitish Kumar One of the focal points of Bihar polls Nitish Kumar is also active on Twitter and makes sure that his campaigning online receives as much attention As the polling for the third phase of Bihar polls gets over today

solutions That the lead players in this election season — Narendra Modi Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal — have trained the spotlight on the Nido Taniam case is heartening It also gives reason to hope for more considered responses from the government To this end the Union Home Ministry has announced the setting up of a committee to “examine the concerns of persons from the Northeast living in other parts of the country” The political conversation on this issue is welcome but New Delhi’s response comes across as predictable band aid It seems improbable that a new committee can offer within two months a cure to the patent and everyday discrimination faced by persons from the Northeast across India including in their own states The terms of reference of the committee include “suggesting measures [and legal remedies] to be taken by the government” to address the causes behind the attacks and discrimination against persons from the Northeast Rather than proposing fresh and special legislation however the committee would do better to push for effective implementation of existing laws Region-specific “antidotes” would run the risk of getting mired in the complex identity politics of the Northeast doing little to bring into the mainstream the issue of the harassment of its peoples In fact a comprehensive anti-discrimination code — one that addresses the concerns of marginalised communities including from the Northeast — may help more in tackling the problems of unjust treatment without lending itself to identity battles and turf wars The new committee’s primary mandate is the safety and well-being of people from the Northeast mostly the youth who migrate to other parts of the country in search of better economic opportunities This concern cannot be divorced from the alienation ordinary Northeast citizens feel at home In the last six decades the Union government has often pandered to influential groups in the region bartering “autonomy” for a more meaningful control of its political economy In states like Manipur there is the added issue of the persistence of the controversial AFSPA Whether the committee will broach these fraught issues remains to be seen The economic empowerment of the Northeast is intrinsically linked to the dignity of its residents and Modi for instance has spoken of making Manipur an “IT hub” But if promises such as these are not to remain mere election-time rhetoric Delhi’s political class will have to do some heavy-lifting to facilitate the unhindered flow of commerce to the state While being sensitive to the unique history and political culture of the Northeast every attempt should be made to highlight the concerns of discrimination and economic lag at par with those faced by communities across India Top of the Game Top of the game Cricket’s centre of gravity has officially shifted But with greater power comes greater responsibility The International Cricket Council’s plan to restructure the game finally and expectedly gained enough votes at its board meeting Pushed by the “big three” of cricket India England and Australia the new revenue-sharing and policy framework in effect gives India the kind of clout in the affairs of the game that it had anyway been asserting for years So now when BCCI chief N Srinivasan takes over as the ICC chairperson the ascent is of a different order than the rise of earlier Indian chiefs of the ICC Then the older colonial-era hierarchies of cricket were being challenged and Indians made their bids in solidarity with other Asian and African boards Now India strengthened further in its proven capacity for unilateralism with the profitable IPL has accommodated itself at the top of the pile dissociating itself from the fray — in fact while it shares the advantage of sanctioned entrenchment with England and Australia in the newly-minted executive committee and finance and commercial affairs committee by virtue of formal acknowledgement of its claim on maximum revenue the centre of gravity has officially shifted Whether this be to the good or not of the game depends on how this clout is wielded by the big three at the ICC and also how their national boards act upon their enhanced power The changes include abandonment of the Future Tours Programme a mandated (though not uniformly heeded) schedule by which each Test-playing country visited and hosted every other Now the number of Test matches and their schedule will be bilaterally negotiated To the extent that this change would allow for keenly contested Test series that the five-day format desperately needs with a fund maintained to aid the other seven (non-big three) Test countries this is to the game’s good The devil lies in how the assertion of individual boards in cricket’s hierarchy will address the problems in its administration After for instance the IPL scandals of 2013 highlighted the mis-management gross conflicts of interest and after-us-the-deluge mindset in the BCCI it became clear exactly how effete the ICC was in even stating leave alone implementing a proper code Affairs of cricket have to be addressed domestically To cleanse the game the BCCI needs to be fixed That process is nowhere near begun Starring Us Increasingly we go to the social network to watch ourselves Thankfully the images are ephemeral If your life were a movie you would be its star Well what do you know Facebook has cast you in one Mark Zuckerberg’s social network is 10 years old this month and for eight of those years — since September 2006 when it was opened to the public — we have watched it monetise the humdrum minutiae of our lives from the breakfast crumbs we leave on our status messages to the photos of the parties we rocked If it has persuaded us to not bother about privacy it’s because it has nudged us — our duckfaces and our opinions — into the centre of a hyperactive online world The selfie was made for Facebook wasn’t it For its birthday party the Facebook team left a gift for its users on their timelines — a Look Back film of their time on the social network It was more like a 62-second slideshow of all the flattering profile pictures they posted and the ones that sought and found the most likes For that endangered breed which believes in low profiles and not in shiny happy pictures — and which thus contributes little to the Facebook revenue model — it only had a dry thank-you There were those discomfited by ex-es and embarrassingly candid moments popping up in their video The network which knows the importance of appearances has a remedy: you can edit your video in the coming days The idea has gone viral because it is perfectly possible to be moved by the mundane details of one’s airbrushed life — and watch them again and again But more because the internet continues to be the repository of our personal narratives where we go to find our voice and have it amplified to a wider world and what seems tantalisingly close to a community
