happened at a more inopportune time for the Indian National Congress In a series of embarrassing poll defeats since the Narendra Modi government came to power in 2014 Bihar polls had been one of the few exceptions in which Congress had got some good news apart from a few other states and Union territories like Punjab and Puducherry File image of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi PTI Even though Congress has not been politically relevant in Bihar for a long time now the victory of the Mahagathbandhan — formed by Lalu Prasad’s RJD Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) and Congress — in Bihar polls was an important step for the Grand Old Party to revive itself and reclaim its lost national relevance for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls Now that Kumar has abandoned the Grand Alliance to leave Congress with RJD which is facing and has earlier faced corruption charges Congress has lost importance in one of the very few states it could have talked about having relevance in And the party is aware of this fact Unlike Lalu Prasad — who reacted bitterly and even alleged that his former ally Nitish Kumar had murder taint on him — Congress was still willing to cozy up to Kumar After all even though Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that "we are deeply disappointed by the news of the resignation of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar" he also made it amply clear that "we in the Congress party particularly Congress president and party vice-president have great respect and affection for Nitish Kumar" Congress expressing "affection" for Kumar when Lalu is slapping murder charges on him at a time when Kumar has dumped both these parties is the biggest indicator of the fact that Congress is aware of the fact that its dark future just got darker Without Kumar the Congress knows now that it is a huge step closer to political oblivion And as expected Congress is planning to make a last ditch effort to persuade Kumar to withdraw his resignation Hindustan Times reported Sources from the Congress said in the report that the party did not rule out Sonia and Rahul Gandhi speaking to Kumar But the fact that Kumar told Congress general secretary in-charge of Bihar CP Joshi about his intentions only when he was entering the Raj Bhavan to submit his resignation instead of telling Rahul Gandhi about it when he met him on Saturday tells us a lot about whether Congress will be successful in saving the doomed Mahagathbandhan It is also worth noting that in the series of statements which Surjewala made RJD or Lalu Prasad was not mentioned even once which shows that Congress may be thinking about distancing itself from the RJD and the corruption charges Lalu and his family members are facing in the near future It will be nothing short of a miracle if the Congress somehow manages to put up even a good fight in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls because the Mahagathbandhan — the platform which Congress and other Opposition parties were looking up to for coming up with an anti-BJP front — is clutching the straws itself Follow the live blog on Bihar political crisis here Written by Agencies | Mumbai | Published: January 20 2010 4:02 pm Related News

NewsWritten by Tanika Sarkar | Updated: March 14 2016 7:27 am JNU student Umar Khalid who has been arrested on the charges of sedition Related News JNU students have unflinchingly expressed their solidarity with Kanhaiya Kumar Umar Khalid Anirban Bhattacharya and others now in custody in order to defend the unfettered freedom of forming opinions and of articulating them fearlessly on the campus That had always been their birthright as students of this university They defend in the process fundamental democratic values of freedom of thought and expression which our Constitution guarantees But behind their commitment to these ideals there is also their love for these students and there are good reasons for that The supervisors of Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid have already written about their research students Anirban Bhattacharya wrote his MPhil thesis and then began his PhD dissertation under my supervision Since I retired a co-supervisor looks after his work along with me Let me write a few words about how I think of him after all these years The son of a professor in a West Bengal university and of a mother who is a homemaker Anirban has always been a serious and quiet student reluctant to show off his academic credentials or capabilities or to hog the limelight to impress his teachers His questions in class and in seminars were nonetheless pointed and incisive coming out of a genuine engagement with intellectual issues His academic record is very good and recently he came first in the junior research fellowship examinations conducted by the Indian Council of Historical Research I have always found him to be an extremely bright and thoughtful young research scholar He is open to criticism however harshly put and he listened attentively to my doubts and objections when he presented his chapter drafts But then he would make up his own mind and argue his case cogently abandoning some of my suggestions and incorporating some others That kind of intellectual independence is precisely what most JNU teachers expect from their students He works on north Bengal tea gardens in colonial times and he is deeply committed to his research Anirban loves the dusty archives I have often met him at the West Bengal IB archives where he would arrive far earlier than all others and stay on longer When he found something interesting in his files he would rush over to my table in great excitement to share the material and to tell me why he found it significant His enthusiasm for historical documents is immense and infectious and sometimes he collected more material than he could possibly process within a single chapter His rage against planters’ exploitation and against the colonial regime’s collusion with it his sympathy and concern for the miserable lot of the coolies are vivid and passionate as if all this is happening in the immediate present When I asked him to apply for an excellent programme on labour history in a German university he refused He said all his archival sources are in Delhi Kolkata and north Bengal so why should he go abroad At JNU supervisors meet their research students collectively as well as singly and in these long free-flowing discussions students help one another with comments and suggestions almost as much as the supervisors do Anirban was particularly good at this With his quick understanding and his keen interest even in themes that were remote from his own he always came up with the most helpful suggestions I particularly enjoyed his sense of humour and quiet fun that enlivened these sessions I remember how unfailingly gentle and polite he has been in his interactions and exchanges even when our intellectual disagreements were at times sharp The last chapter that I had discussed at length with him happened to be one on the punishments that were meted out to labourers who protested against injustice and exploitation It contained a detailed and passionate description of the tin-roofed cell where such workers were incarcerated in blistering heat Anirban is now in the last year of his PhD programme — will he be allowed to finish the work that he loves that he invested so much in despite his frail and delicate health and bouts of illness And will JNU be allowed to preserve its tradition of intellectual freedom The writer retired as professor Centre

promise but the road ahead will only get tougher (Source: AP) Related News It wasn’t a water to wine story after all Even though they chased a win all along India’s primary goal was to ensure they are not humiliated In that they have succeded The courageous attitude of the Indian players was contagious They wore their hearts on the sleeves and against established footballing nations they played with a mindset that few Indian football teams have But that was the only positive to come out of it The under-17 World Cup has been a reality check for India in terms of the quality of players and the overall structure of the game in the country The Indian Express takes a look at some issues that stare at the country going forward Pressing the reboot button What this tournament has proven is the need to press the reboot button Quite frankly India cannot hope to qualify for a senior World Cup with this bunch of players Or the next The players are easily the best India have had in this age-group for a long time But India’s best are still light years behind the world It shows in their poor ball control abilities and reading of the game India put a lot of bodies behind the ball which made defending a bit easier But going forward the team lacked imagination Their passes — when they passed the ball that is — were obvious anticipation wasn’t great and because of a poor first touch were wasteful in possession The teams that are good at these things have players taking their first lessons at the age of 5 In India they start after 10 When you start five years after rest of the world you are always playing catch-up Worryingly for India there is still no structure at the 5 to 10 years level The AIFF has been planning a ‘baby league’ for close to a year But they are nowhere close to implementing it A Centre of Excellence too is planned But only on paper Not just the AIFF grassroot programmes of some clubs — I-League or ISL — are as laughable as the suggestions that India will qualify for 2022 World Cup There is an urgent need to relook at the entire structure to ensure children are coached at an early age The results may take 15-20 years to show (China hosted the under-17 World Cup in 1985 and it is still trying to get a perfect youth structure) But that is the only way forward Widening gap The general belief is that keeping this bunch together and nurturing them will bode well for the national team Whether it is a sustainable model is debatable especially since AIFF has tried it once before with the Arrows — a project that promised so much but had to be aborted due to lack of finances The current team will be kept together for the next two years to ensure they progress well But while they improve so will the rest A former India captain recently gave an example of his youth days In an under-16 tournament in late 90s an India team that he was a part of lost to Japan by ‘just’ two goals It gave them the confidence he said that they are not too far behind the world’s best In 2004 he had graduated to the senior team and India met Japan in the World Cup qualifiers Both teams had several players from that under-16 match so India expected a close match However they lost 7-0 India are generally competitive at the Asian level till the under-16 or 19 level But lack of competitions and poor quality of the domestic league hampers their growth So by the time they reach the senior team their level goes down at times instead of improving India’s under-17 coach Luis Norton de Matos said the quality of under-17 World Cup is better than the I-League He did not spare ISL either saying their franchises go to Europe and lose to fourth division clubs there It was a damning indictment of the domestic game And he isn’t entirely wrong Unless the domestic league strengthens the national team won’t Lack of scouting That brings us to the role of the clubs It is astonishing that apart from Minerva no other I-League or ISL club contributed to India’s under-17 squad IMG-Reliance run glossy youth development programmes but that has not yielded anything solid Most I-League clubs haven’t even attempted to have a grassroots programme The club structure in most countries includes a first team a reserve team age group teams (U-20 U-19 U-18 U-17 U-16 and U-15) apart from having their own academies In India it stops with a senior team and an under-19 side at best The lack of youth teams and scouting process was apparent in the ad-hoc manner in which this team was formed Having eight players from Manipur (and 10 overall from North East) is a testimony to the region’s dominance But it is unbelievable that there is not one good player in Goa or Tamil Nadu Hyderabad or Kashmir The infrastructure excuse They say poor infrastructure in these states has hindered progress For all these years India has blamed its shoddy quality of football on the pitiful infrastructure Lack of proper grounds of course is lamentable but that can’t be the reason for a team to not do well Take Ghana for instance “In terms of infrastructure India is way ahead than Ghana” the team’s coach Samuel Fabin said Most of the players from the squad that steamrolled India grew up playing on dusty uneven surfaces They aren’t an exception Mali last edition’s runners-up too do not have sufficient grounds even at a senior level Even back home there aren’t as many grounds in the North East as compared to other areas Yet the region has contributed most players to this squad With the hosting of this event India’s infrastructure woes have been addressed to some extent and the AIFF wants to use to host bigger better world level events Before that however it needs to address the issues highlighted during under-17 World Cup to ensure India does not merely play the good host but also be competitive For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: January 8 2016 12:00 am File photo of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed who passed away at AIIMS in New Delhi on Thursday (PTI Photo) Related News Mufti Mohammad Sayeed lived many lives and wore several hats in his long political career Journeying across parties governments and ideologies the man who constantly reinvented his politics leaves behind a complex legacy An old-school politician he had friends across the political spectrum while refusing to be constricted by any one platform To him goes the credit for expanding the political space in Kashmir When militant separatism altered the political map of J&K after 1989 his politics of outreach succeeded in addressing if not bridging the constituencies of both the separatists and the political mainstream He crafted a nuanced Kashmiri regionalism that tempered the notion of separatism by talking about self-rule and autonomy within the ambit of the Indian state and cultivating friendly relations and building soft borders with Pakistan Goli se nahi baat banege boli se was his famous line that recalled Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s doctrine of “insaniyat” as the paradigm to settle the Kashmir issue and build trust with Pakistan His skills in political management were such that he could even blunt the allegations that he was betraying the PDP’s mandate when he took the bold step post poll of allying with the BJP to form the government in 2015 Most recently his statesmanship was on display when he became the first ally of the BJP to speak up and call for a response from the prime minister in the wake of the silence in the top echelons of the Modi government after the lynching at Dadri The last few years of Mufti’s politics seemed to be in sharp contrast to the early part of his career and it was Mufti’s achievement again that he took the rupture in his stride He was a Congressman in the 1960s and 1970s when it was not profitable politically to be associated with that party in J&K In the 1980s when the NC and the Congress came close he joined VP Singh’s Jan Morcha His tenure as Union home minister in Singh’s National Front government is remembered for the hostage crisis when Kashmir militants kidnapped his daughter Rubaiya and forced the Centre to release militants in exchange for her freedom Yet in 1999 he resurrected his career and redrew the political map of J&K by floating the PDP along with his daughter Mehbooba If Mehbooba was the charismatic leader who built the organisation Mufti was the glue that held the PDP together Mehbooba’s challenge will be to build on Mufti’s legacy both in politics and government She is not just his daughter and heir but a mass leader in her own right and the BJP her ally in government has indicated it would facilitate a smooth transition Mufti was adept at dealing simultaneously with allies the Centre and different political segments in the Valley In his absence Mehbooba will need to take on that large and difficult role For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express
