corruption made me laugh Last time I saw your own sons were out on bail" Congress leader Sachin Pilot also hit out at Dhumal saying the party projected him becauseModi’s charisma was fading "The BJP had to change its strategy midway and was forced to project Prem Kumar Dhumal while the Congress is always confident of its chief ministerial candidate Virbhadra Singh who is a mass and determined

said With inputs from agencies Click here to follow LIVE updates of the Himachal Pradesh Assembly Election result For more updates checkhere If there is one party that should be worried about India becoming ‘Congress-mukt’ it is the BJP Results of elections in four major states indicate the BJP needs its arch rival to succeed — it feeds off the failures of the Congress It is natural for the BJP to celebrate its maiden victory in Assam It isn’t often that a party with just four percent seats in an Assembly goes on to sweep the next election with a four-fifth majority With nearly 90 seats in the 126-member Assam assembly the BJP alliance has indeed achieved the impossible But here is a caveat: BJP won Assam because the conditions were tailor-made for any credible opposition to the Congress The factors that decided the outcome in Assam had very little to do with national politics And Narendra Modi wasn’t one of them Hope and promises of achche din factors that helped BJP win a series of elections from 2012-2015 before the AAP stopped its juggernaut were not the talking points in Assam The election was decided only by just fear Assam’s demography had undergone a major change over the past few decades Since early 19th century immigrants from the east first East Bengal and later Bangladesh had taken the number of Muslims to almost 35 per cent of the population More than 30 per cent of them are believed to be of migrant origin Since the number of Muslims were growing ethnic Assamese tribes and other Hindu voters — Marwaris Bengalis and those from Nepal — were worried about the state turning into another Kashmir a minority-majority state Political competitors BJP can only win when pitted against Congress Reuters This fear among Assamese people of becoming a minority in their own land was enhanced by the presence of the All India United Democratic Front led by Badruddin Ajmal In the 2011 election people had reposed their faith in the Congress because they wanted to keep Ajmal out and also hoped that Tarun Gogoi would stop the inflow of illegal immigrants in the state But the Congress failed to take effective measures to address the issue To its credit the BJP read the mood of the state early turned immigration into the single-biggest issue of the election and stitched up alliances to ensure the majority vote doesn’t disintegrate Results of the polls in the three other states — Kerala Tamil Nadu and West Bengal — are mixed for the BJP Early trends suggest its vote share in Kerala (11 per cent) has stagnated since the 2014 elections and in WB it has actually come down from 17 to just 10 percent In Kerala it was expected to expand its base because of the alliance with Bharatiya Dharma Jana Sena an umbrella organisation of Ezhavas a dominant backward community that was traditionally a supporter of the Left But it has done well only in its traditional strongholds like Trivandrum and Kasaragod If you analyse the election closely it becomes apparent that the BJP is doing well only in states where its major rival is the Congress In states where it is pitted against a strong regional party the BJP flounders Like it did in Bihar and Delhi before this round of elections This theory would be put to test again in the next round of elections slated in 2017 In Punjab and Uttar Pradesh the BJP’s major rivals would be strong regional parties–AAP in one and SP-BSP in the other When the next round is held there will be no borders to seal no immigrants to stop and no ageing Gogois to dislodge This is when the BJP will be put to a tougher test Be that as it may a ‘Congress-mukt Bharat’ a process that had started in 2013 still appears to be a possibility But to conclude that the Congress is dead and buried after the losses in this round would be erroneous From the very beginning the Congress was not expected to win in Kerala where voters have the habit of throwing out the incumbent In Tamil Nadu it was non-existent and in West Bengal the Congress was just the sleeping partner in an opportunistic alliance Assam was the only state it could have won So Congress-mukt Bharat is still work in progress The next two years would be decisive for the Congress If (caveat: too early and too small a sample) results of the recent MCD bypolls in Delhi are an indication it is actually bouncing back in the Capital It is the AAP’s main rival in Punjab the BJP’s principal adversary in Gujarat Rajasthan Madhya Pradesh Chhattisgarh and Karnataka and still a major force in Maharashtra Only if the party loses elections in all these states gets wiped out the way it has been in Assam will the BJP be able to claim India has become ‘Congress-mukt’ What if it ends up winning some of these states Perhaps it may not be such a bad

Estimated cost for the first phase is 845 million Express Photo by Rajesh Stephen Related News The Centre has nominated the European Investment Bank (EIB) to fund around 600 million euro of the estimated cost of 845 million for the first phase of Pune metro rail project even as the implementing agency Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (Maha-Metro) pushes for acquisition of land required to develop infrastructure for the project “The ministry of finance of the Union government has nominated EIB to fund 600 million euro for the first phase of Pune metro rail Various options are being considered to raise the remaining 245 million of the estimated project and the option of French Development Agency (AFD) and KfW of Germany is being explored” said Brijesh Dixit managing director of Maha-Metro He said there was no immediate need of money as the funding by the government at the beginning is sufficient for the construction work planned this year The Maha-Metro has started the infrastructure work of Pune metro rail in April for the 1075-km route of PCMC to Rangehill Dixit said the work began at fast pace within five months of the foundation stone laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 24 The agency has re-tendered the work for Vanaz-to-Shivajinagar court route after getting high rates during the first tender process “The rates quoted by the contractors were high so it was decided to invite re-tender for the construction of metro rail route from Vanaz to Shivajinagar court” Dixit said The tenders for the construction of stations on PCMC to Rangehill route would be open on July 16 while the bidding process for the construction of station on Vanaz to Shivajinagar court route would be started soon he added Dixit said that the Maha-Metro has completed the process of seeking land for the metro rail project from various authorities and was hopeful of getting them within two months Asked about the opposition to providing the land of agriculture college and Vanaz garbage depot to develop a metro depot he said “The land of agriculture college belongs to the state government and it has in principle agreed to give the land for Pune metro rail project Similarly the garbage depot land at Vanaz too would be available soon” The interchange station at Shivajinagar court would be state-of-the-art building with a three-storey station which would be designed by a foreign architect Dixit said adding “The Maha-Metro has also roped in experts from abroad to study and prepare plan for underground metro rail route from Budhwar Peth to Swargate” The underground metro rail route would be 20 metre below surface and the study report along with the strategy for its construction would be ready in one month he said “It is challenging for us to construct the underground metro rail with proposed stations considering the dense locality Since the area has maximum footfall there can be no changes in the proposed route So a way has to be found to construct the underground metro rail route along with the stations” Dixit said On the opposition to metro rail in the city by few citizens he said “There has been a perception that the Pune metro rail is going to benefit only two per cent of the city population which is incorrect In fact the 31-km of the first phase of Pune metro rail from PCMC to Swargate and Vanaz to Ramwadi would benefit almost half of its population as the route cuts across the city Also this was the beginning of metro rail project and the routes would be later extended to cover more areas” He said that Maha-Metro was also coordinating with the Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA) that is developing the metro rail route from Shivajinagar to Hinjewadi “We are working together to develop a common station at Shivajinagar court” Dixit said For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Man Aman Singh Chhina | Chandigarh | Published: May 13

Gen NK Mehta Commandant College of Material Management Jabalpur had earlier been ordered to be reverted to the rank of Brigadier after the AFT found that he could not have even been promoted to the rank of Major General The General had then approached the Supreme Court which had stayed the implementation of the AFT order but asked the tribunal to dispose of his application challenging certain aspects related to his promotion Punching holes in the Army’s promotion procedures the AFT bench said “We are constrained to observe that selection and appointment to the higher post in pyramidal structure of the Army should not be made betting in race course against the tradition and advice of Army by ignoring relevant provisions or keeping silent to the malpractices in the matter of

who at the cost of their lives saved the honour of the country when the whole nation was awe-struck and reeling under deep mental pain and agony The officers who are sacrificing their lives for the honour of the Nation in case not given their due right with regard to their promotional avenues it shall have a demoralising effect on them and the backbone of Indian Army shall lose its spine” the
