News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsIt is not for nothing that Amit Shah –peggedas man-of-the-match by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his stellar role in winning 71 of the 80 seats from Uttar Pradesh in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections – has chosen the Samajwadi Party as BJP’s main rival in the upcoming UP Assembly elections In life you don’t get to choose your rival just as you don’t choose your own boss or your parents It’s destiny or circumstances in Darwinian language that decide everything for you BJP president Amit Shah Reuters You can at best do your own best And that’s all Like it or not it’s Mayawati’s BSP that is seen galloping ahead of others in an otherwise fluid scenario in UP at the moment There are compelling reasons why Amit Shah has made this statement deliberately First and foremost the BJP – which is essentially a right-wing Hindu outfit and Maulana Mulayam’s SP – which owes its sustenance primarily to the Muslim-Yadav vote bank happen to be the two ends of the same pole in a socio-religious divide To use the Marxist lexicon they have continuously been locked in a thesis/anti-thesis kind of relationship for over 25 years If one of the two rises the other one falls And if somebody else gains ascendancy in his or her quest for a synthesis both of them fall together To understand all this even better you need to look back into history And once you do this you will find that both the BJP and the SP registered meteoric rises only in the wake of the Ram Janmabhoomi Movement in the late 1980s Mulayam Singh became chief minister for the first time in 1989 Before this he had always lived under the shadow of the likes of Choudhary Charan Singh Chandrashekhar VP Singh Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna and so on Even after the VP Singh government fell at the Centre – thanks to the withdrawal of support by the BJP – Mulayam Singh continued on as chief minister in Lucknow with the support of Chandrashekhar’s Janata Dal And when Chandrashekhar’s government fell in New Delhi general elections were held The BJP replaced the SP and Kalyan Singh became chief minister at the peak of the Mandir Movement in 1991 In the post-Babri mosque demolition era the SP came back to power with the help of the BSP in 1993 Mulayam Singh’s second stint as chief minister lasted till June 1995 when his ally the BSP joined hands with the BJP to form a government together The game of musical chairs went on with new alliances and in the years that followed BJP’s Kalyan Singh Ram Prasad Gupta and Rajnath Singh adorned the chief minister’s chair for shorter periods with the support of allies Thereafter following a fluid post election scenario in 2002 the BJP and BSP again joined hands to form a government under Mayawati But the BJP pulled the rug from under the feet of Mayawati paving the way for Mulayam to become chief minister for the third time in 2003 It’s significant that both the SP and the BJP fared badly in the 2007 Assembly elections Mayawati had come on top by then and she formed a government on her own for full five years after a long time The 2012 elections saw the SP replacing the BJP And the point to be noted here is that the Modi wave swept across UP when the SP ruled Lucknow You can’t understand the riddle of the BJP getting as many as 71 of the total 80 Lok Sabha seats from UP under the shrewd stewardship of Amit Shah in 2014 unless you examine the situation that prevailed in North India in the aftermath of the Muzaffarnagar communal riots of 2013 It was obvious that a huge Hindu backlash had swept across UP and Mulayam Singh’s party which was at the helm of affairs in Lucknow couldn’t or didn’t as is alleged do much to lighten the surcharged atmosphere At least 62 people from both the communities lost their lives and hundreds of others were injured in what was described as “the worst communal flare-up in UP’s recent history” The army had to be called in The scars of this untoward incident are still fresh in public memory particularly in western UP You can now see why the BJP chose to launch its poll campaign from Saharanpur – a place that is quite close to Muzaffarnagar It was hardly surprising that the rally which was addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh was a massive success This rally apart RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat shall be holding a major camp in Mulayam Singh’s political bastion in Etawah later this month And after this the BJP will hold its national executive meeting in Allahabad next month Everything has been planned meticulously Meanwhile the see-saw game between the BJP and the SP goes on The otherwise hostile statements and counter-statements that you hear from the players are to be taken with a pinch of salt Indeed With pre-poll surveys indicating a close fight between the two traditional rivals in the coming Assembly polls political parties in Kerala are taking their campaign to the Middle East where about 90 percent of the estimated 20 lakh Non-Resident Keralites (NRKs) live Though only about 15000 of these expatriates have registered their names in the voters’ list so far most parties consider even this small number crucial since the gap between the votes polled by the winner and loser in an election is mostly very thin in the state It was as low as 089 percent in the 2011 Assembly election in which 7512 percent of the total 229 crore voters cast their votes The Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) that came to power then with a wafer thin majority polled only 156 lakh votes more than the total votes secured by rival Left Democratic Front (LDF) Representational image AFP Candidates in many constituencies had razor thin victories A former minister scraped through by a margin of just 157 votes at Piravom in Ernakulam district The margin of victory in three other constituencies was less than 500 It was between 500 and 1000 votes in five constituencies and between 1000 and 5000 in 17 seats Parties count not just the registered NRK voters but also their family members who mostly go by the preference of their bread winners They think they can get the votes of the dependents by winning over the expats Therefore they are focusing more on the expats than their dependents in the state Even though many of the countries in the Middle East do no permit political activity all major parties are active in most of the countries through their cultural wings Some constituencies have even separate organisations in countries like Saudi Arabia UAE Kuwait Qatar and Oman which account for majority of overseas Keralites These organisations run the poll campaign through group meetings and conventions as in the state They also facilitate members to keep in contact with their dependents back home through text messages and telephones They ensure that their members telephone the family members in the morning on the polling day and convey their choice "Dependents of NRKs constitute a major chunk of the electorate in Kerala Assuming that each NRK has at least two dependents back home the number of votes the expats can influence comes to 40 lakh This is a huge number that can definitely influence the poll outcome" says P C Vishnunath Congress candidate at Chengannur in Alappuzha district Vishnunath who has run a personal campaign in Kuwait and Bahrain a month ago said the Overseas Indian Cultural Congress (OICC) the overseas wing of the party has been running a systematic campaign abroad under the supervision of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) targeting the dependents through their kin overseas "We also have Chengannur association in many countries in the Gulf I am keeping in constant touch with members of these organisations through social networking sites and mobile applications" Vishnuath told Firstpost Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) the second largest constituent of the ruling United Democratic Front (UDF) led by the Congress has also launched an aggressive campaign in the Middle East through the Kerala Muslim Cultural Centre (KMC) the overseas wing of the party Apart from canvassing votes of the family members of their members in the Gulf KMCC is also trying to take registered voters to the state for the voting They had operated chartered flights in the last Assembly and Lok Sabha elections for the purpose Party candidate P K Basheer who returned from a week-long campaign in Saudi Arabia said they were expecting more NRKs to come to the state for voting this time Many of them will be coming in advance and join the campaign he said adding that the NRKs were highly enthusiastic about the election "Those who are unable to come for the voting are keeping in touch with their family members and friends and urging them to vote for the UDF They are impressed by the developmental activities and various measures undertaken by the UDF government for the welfare of the expats" said Basheer who is contesting the election from Ernad constituency in Malappuram district His colleague Abdurahman Randathani who returned from a week-long campaign in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said that NRKs from his constituency had already started booking their tickets to come for the voting "We are helping them to do group booking so that they can get discounted fares My attempt is to bring all the registered voters to my constituency on the polling day" says Randathani who is contesting the election from Tanur in Malappuram district The Left parties which do not have any umbrella organisation in the Middle East as the Congress and IUML have are focusing more on online campaign They rely more on online chat options and messaging apps for connecting with the overseas Keralites?

Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Mihir Vasavda | New Delhi | Updated: December 3 2016 5:48 pm It was only after a year after he started boxing that Sachin stepped into an actual boxing ring Top News When light flyweight boxer Sachin Siwach was learning the ropes at a local boxing academy his father Krishan a small-time farmer was worried about how he was going to afford fresh milk — an essential part of the diet the coach had prescribed The wheat the family produced at Mitathal village roughly 15km from Bhiwani was just enough to make both ends meet But with a little ingenuity and a stroke of luck Krishan found a cow that had wandered into the village When nobody came to claim the animal Krishan took it home From that day onwards his younger son got the nutrition he required Sachin won India’s first youth world championship gold since 2010 when he beat Cuba’s Jorge Grinan at St Petersburg And the story about how he got to drink fresh milk everyday though the family of four struggled to put two square meals on the table is also one about the fight against the odds Krishan was determined to make his son a boxer — just like his brother Vijender who was a junior India international as well So even before he turned 10 Sachin was admitted to Sanjay Sheoran’s academy “The coach told me that fresh cow milk would be an essential part of his diet along with almonds chickpeas fruits churma etc” Krishan says “I knew I could somehow manage almonds but I could not afford a cow” It was a year later that Krishan spotted the stray cow “I got her tested by a proper doctor who declared it was safe to consume her milk” Krishan says “So I now have a desi cow and a buffalo which I got around five years ago similarly” Krishan says the cattle is primarily used for his son’s diet But he sells rest of the milk and the money earned from is utilized in maintaining them and to meet Sachin’s other needs “Khana-peena humne karwaya Coach ne mehnat karwai Baaki gau maata hai (We took care of his diet coach focused on his training For the rest we have a cow)” he says Sachin now 17 joined Sheoran’s academy eight years ago This was the time when Bhiwani had shot into limelight as the country’s boxing hub following Vijender Singh and Akhil Kumar’s exploits at the Beijing Olympics The Bhiwani Boxing Club (BBC) was the epicentre Unlike hundreds of kids who joined the BBC during that wave Krishan decided to enrol his son at Sheoran’s club While the BBC boasts of a couple of proper boxing rings gym and other such facilities Sheoran’s academy is just a small piece of dusty pebble-laden land with dry wild grass “Char jhande mitti mein ghaad diye hai Bas wahi hai hamari ring” Sheoran says The academy was started by Sheoran’s father Hawasingh a Dronacharya award-winning boxing coach Hawasingh coached Krishan’s brother and Sachin’s uncle Vijender So to keep the tradition alive Sheoran’s club was chosen over BBC Sheoran says there aren’t many kids training at his centre which gave him the chance to focus on Sachin entirely It was only after a year after he started boxing that Sachin stepped into an actual boxing ring But months of training in the makeshift facility had made his legs stronger and movement faster It was a factor that was visible in the way he punched his way to gold in St Petersburg Russia Orthodox in his style Sachin was more of a counter-puncher At the junior national camp he was moulded into a much more attacking boxer That combined with his quick feet make him a thrill to watch “His side movement is good After landing a punch he is quick to move sideways to avoid getting counter-punched And at 5’6” he is taller than most of the boxers in his weight category So he uses that to his advantage by maintaining distance from his opponents” says Girish Pawar a member of India’s coaching staff at the youth worlds Sachin is only the third Indian after Nanao Singh (2008) and Vikas Krishan (2010) to win a youth world championship gold At the same venue last year Sachin had won the junior world championship bronze medal “So I was pretty confident going into the youth worlds Everyday I used to make a call back
