India A and U-19 coach who worked as mentor of Delhi IPL team “This was done in an adhoc and arbitrary manner the more famous the former player-turned-coach the more likely was the BCCI to allow him to draft his own contract that left loopholes that he exploited to dodge the conflict of interest issue” Guha writes Guha feels Anil Kumble India’s coach has been unfairly treated despite a good year at the helm He blasts the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and BCCI office bearers for being “extremely insensitive and unprofessional” in the way they handled it and also pins blames on COA for its “silence and inaction” Guha also warns about giving untrammeled power to the players “Current Indian players enjoy a veto power on who can be the members of the commentary team If it is to be coaches next then

and demanded a crackdown on "rootless cult leaders" by bringing in a legislation Giving out the list which includes names like Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Rampal Asaram and his son Narayan Sai the parishad’s president Swami Narendra Giri said "We appeal to even the common people to beware of such charlatans who belong to no tradition and by their questionable acts bring disrepute to sadhus and sanyasis" File image of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh CNN-News18 The parishad is a council of akharas which are monastic orders drawing their spiritual lineage from 8th-century seer Adi Shankara who is said to have established orders of martial monks with the aim of defending the Hindu dharma The development comes close on the heels of a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Haryana sentencing Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim to 20 years in prison for the rape of two of his former disciples Large-scale violence took place in various parts of Haryana Punjab and Rajasthan following his conviction by the court in the two cases Forty-one people were killed in Haryana in the clashes However no death was reported from Punjab and Rajasthan While Asaram is in jail in connection with a sexual assault case his son Narayan Sai also booked in a similar case is out on bail Rampal is behind bars facing trial in a number of cases relating to violence "We are going to send copies of this list to the Centre the state governments as well as all the opposition parties with the demand that a strong legislation be brought to check the activities of these self-styled cult leaders" Giri told reporters in Allahabad He also claimed that he had on Saturday received a phone call from a person claiming to be a devotee of Asaram who "threatened to kill me if a mention was made of his guru in the list of fake babas we planned to bring out today" "An FIR has been lodged at the Daraganj police station in the city based on a complaint of Giri The matter is being investigated" Senior Superintendent of Police of Allahabad Anand Kulkarni said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has finally broken his silence on the Dadri incident In a brief but informal conversation with the Anand Bazar Patrika Modi seemed to have conveyed his displeasure over such incidents but pointed out that the Centre had no role to play as law and order is in the domain of the state governments Though the PM had obliquely referred to such incidents of intolerance by backing up president Pranab Mukherjee’s statement of preserving the core values of India he has apparently referred to Dadri Ghulam Ali concert and Shiv Sena’s vandalism with Sudheendra Kulkarni for the first time Is this the end of the matter Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a file photo Reuters Just as the PM’s views were known his opponents say that it is hardly enough Obviously the issue here is not to sooth the frayed tempers but to ignite the tinderbox that western UP has become over the years Of late Bishara village of Noidahas become a place of political pilgrimage Leaders covering broad spectrum of politics have been descending to the village to have photo-ops with family members of Akhlaq who was killed by an irate mob on the suspicion of slaughtering a cow and eating beef Are you aware of the fact not even a police constable let alone police inspector or SP or DM has been punished for monumental dereliction of duty that triggered violence in the village Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav who is constitutionally vested with the job of running the state has avoided visiting Noida And pray what urgent matters of state have disabled him from visiting the bereaved family None There is a superstition in Uttar Pradesh that incumbent chief ministers lose their kursi soon after they visit Noida It is this absurd superstition that has prevented Akhilesh from visiting the family in Noida He had the family flown to Lucknow instead We have not heard any liberal noise against Akhilesh have we Neither against the inefficiency of his government and police nor against his ludicrous superstition Those aware of communal riots in western UP will recognise a familiar script in this unfolding story The Muzaffarnagar riots that engulfed the entire region happened in the background of a similar story where two Jat brothers attacked a Muslim youth for teasing their sister Those brothers were subsequently killed by an irate mob of Muslims It triggered the most violent clashes in which Muslims were attacked by mobs in rural areas Though all these incidents hogged the headlines the abject failure of governance at the basic level of police stations and civil administration remained hidden from critical scrutiny of liberals in the media It is a recorded fact that stern and decisive action taken by a no-nonsense district police chief in Meerut averted riots when Muzaffarnagar and Bijnore were buring in 2013 Was anybody in the government held accountable for those riots in which hundreds of innocents lost their lives Did anyone ask chief minister Akhilesh Yadav leave alone Sonia Gandhi or the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about the measures they were contemplating to pre-empt recurrence There has not been one instance of even a sub-inspector of a thana known as daroga having faced as much as a knock on their knuckles for failing in their duties leading to communal killings much less exemplary punishment The reasons are obvious — police stations in the state auctioned to the highest bidders who then set out to maximise the opportunity through extortion from crime syndicates liquor mafias and thugs for their bosses and let them have a free-run This is the precise reason why western UP has been inundated with spurious country made foreign liquor (CMFL) by powerful racketeers having patronage of the government Like Punjab western UP is also in the grip of deadly addiction to liquor and drugs with villages upon villages falling prey to this Most of those who attacked Akhlaq’s family are believed to have been be in a totally inebriated state They formed a lynch mob that can be easily provoked into doing anything Such a dreadful scenario exists all over western UP But did you hear anybody asking for explanation from even a district SP or district magistrate or even a daroga on why Bishara village has become a den of drunkards Is Narendra Modi the elected Prime Minister of the Union of India or is he the daroga of Bishara that we keep asking him for answers Even if he were to relent and say something on this what would he say other than all the secular platitudes of all the political and literary intelligentsia that wouldn’t amount to making a whiff of difference to the family of Akhlaq He could have possibly taken the moral high ground but that’s about that And indeed even if he wanted to take effective action what exactly would that be Should he read and adapt from Indira Gandhi’s book of federalism which taught us how to routinely dismiss opposition chief ministers using the flimsiest of excuses: deteriorating law and order By: Tech Desk | Updated: January 22 2017 4:54 pm LeEco has announced its ‘Republic Day Sale’ on Snapdeal
