Mayawati Snubs Congress, Allies With Ajit Jogi For Chhattisgarh Elections


If the alliance wins, Ajit Jogi will be chief minister of Chhattisgarh, said Mayawati

New Delhi: 

In a huge blow to the Congress and its efforts to anchor opposition unity ahead of 2019, Uttar Pradesh politician Mayawati today announced an alliance in Chhattisgarh with Ajit Jogi, a known rebel expelled by the party in 2016. She also named 22 candidates for neighbouring Madhya Pradesh, where the Congress has been unable to thrash out a seat-sharing formula for the state polls later this year.

After his bitter exit from the Congress, Ajit Jogi, 72, formed his own party Chhattisgarh Janata Congress, which could potentially dent his former party’s votes, to the advantage of the ruling BJP.

Mayawati, a Dalit powerhouse with pockets of influence in northern states, said as part of her seat-sharing deal with Ajit Jogi, he would be the chief ministerial candidate.

“The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has decided to contest upcoming assembly polls in alliance with Chhattisgarh Janata Congress. BSP will fight on 35 seats and Chhattisgarh Janata Congress will contest on 55 seats. If we win, Ajit Jogi will be the chief minister,” Mayawati said.

“You must already know that much is being written about BSP and alliances. I have only said one thing- whichever party we ally with, we need respectable seats.”

Pointedly, she also criticised “dependence on Delhi for crucial decisions and inactivity and hopelessness by local BJP and Congress leaders in Chhattisgarh”.

The Congress says they will fight the elections independently. “We will form the government in the state,” said Congress General Secretary and Chhattisgarh in-charge PL Punia.

That Chhattisgarh is off the table – the Congress had feared a Mayawati-Ajit Jogi tie-up – serves as a big warning for the party.

Mayawati’s negotiations with the Congress for a tie-up in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh have been gridlocked over the share of seats and the BSP chief’s insistence on a similar deal for Rajasthan, where the Congress sees bright chances of a return to power in the state’s two-way race.

In the last state election, the BJP won 165 seats in Madhya Pradesh; the Congress won 58 and the BSP won just four.

Kamal Nath, the chief of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, told NDTV last week: “They wanted 50 seats when we started talking, but are being more reasonable now, seeing what’s at stake and that we share a common goal of defeating the BJP. We should have a deal in the next ten days.”

Both Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia have been trying to get Mayawati on board, given that Dalits claim six per cent of the votes in Madhya Pradesh, but their internal friction is also seen to stymie the efforts.

With her Chhattisgarh tie-up, Mayawati has showed that she will not be bullied, especially after her mega-political comeback in UP, where she partnered successfully with former rival Akhilesh Yadav to snatch three seats from the BJP.

Jammu and Kashmir Panchayat Offices Set Afire, But Civic Body Elections To Be Held On Schedule


The urban body elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be conducted in four phases.

Srinagar: 

The Jammu and Kashmir administration is preparing for the upcoming civic polls on a war footing despite increasing incidents of arson in the Valley, a boycott call by separatist leaders and two major political parties deciding to abstain.

The state election body will source electronic voting machines (EVMs) from Punjab and ballot boxes from Haryana for the electoral contests ahead. While the municipal polls will be held in four phases through October 8 to 16, the panchayat elections are scheduled for the first week of November.

“We have sourced about 20,000 ballot boxes from Haryana for a very nominal fee,” Jammu and Kashmir Chief Electoral Officer Shaleen Kabra told NDTV. “The state will pay around Rs 8-10 per day for every box used, plus transportation costs.”

The EVMs will be brought in from Punjab, he added.

Urban body elections in the state will be conducted in four phases. Although September 25 is the last date for filing nominations for the first phase of polling, not a single candidate had obliged in the Kashmir region until Tuesday. Jammu was doing better, with 22 nominations being filed until then.

The panchayat elections, on the other hand, will have 35,096 constituencies going to the polls in nine phases in Kashmir and Leh, and eight phases in Jammu. “As south Kashmir is the most vulnerable of these regions, we will ensure additional security arrangements there. We have staggered polling in sensitive zones, so maintaining law and order can be easier,” a senior officer said.

Moreover, officials have been instructed to videograph everything about the polls, from filing of nomination papers to storage of ballot boxes, to ensure complete transparency.

A senior officer from North Block said seven panchayat ghars — buildings where local body members meet to perform official duties — have been burnt down by miscreants until now. “Some local elements are trying to sabotage the democratic process, but we are providing polling stations with adequate security,” he added.

As many as 40 schools were burnt down in 2016, in the wake of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani’s death in an encounter, but the state administration was able to stem such incidents with the help of the local community.

While the PDP and National Conference decided to keep away from the upcoming polls to protest against the purported threat to Article 35A of the Constitution, separatist groups have asked the “freedom-loving people” of Kashmir to observe a complete boycott. Article 35A, which was incorporated in the Constitution by a 1954 presidential order, accords special rights and privileges to Jammu and Kashmir citizens and bars outsiders from acquiring immovable property in the state.

The security of the candidates contesting in the local body polls has also become a great concern. Intelligence agencies have warned of increased violence during this period.

Facebook War Room To Battle Meddling In Upcoming US, Brazil Elections


Teams at Facebook have been honing responses to potential scenarios such as floods of bogus news

San Francisco: 

Facebook on Wednesday said it will have a “war room” up and running on its Silicon Valley campus to quickly repel efforts to use the social network to meddle in upcoming elections.

“We are setting up a war room in Menlo Park for the Brazil and US elections,” Facebook elections and civic engagement director Samidh Chakrabarti said during a conference call.

“It is going to serve as a command center so we can make real-time decisions as needed.”

He declined to say when the “war room” — currently a conference room with a paper sign taped to the door — would be in operation.

Teams at Facebook have been honing responses to potential scenarios such as floods of bogus news or campaigns to trick people into falsely thinking they can cast ballots by text message, according to executives.

“Preventing election interference on Facebook has been one of the biggest cross-team efforts the company has seen,” Chakrabarti said.

The conference call was the latest briefing by Facebook regarding efforts to prevent the kinds of voter manipulation or outright deception that took place ahead of the 2016 election the brought US President Donald Trump to office.

Facebook is better prepared to defend against efforts to manipulate the platform to influence elections and has recently thwarted foreign influence campaigns targeting several countries, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said last week in a post on the social network.

“We’ve identified and removed fake accounts ahead of elections in France, Germany, Alabama, Mexico and Brazil,” Zuckerberg said.

– ‘Better prepared’ for attacks –

“We’ve found and taken down foreign influence campaigns from Russia and Iran attempting to interfere in the US, UK, Middle East, and elsewhere — as well as groups in Mexico and Brazil that have been active in their own country.”

Zuckerberg repeated his admission that Facebook was ill-prepared for the vast influence efforts on social media in the 2016 US election but added that “today, Facebook is better prepared for these kinds of attacks.”

Facebook has started showing who is behind election-related online ads, and have shut down accounts involved in coordinated stealth influence campaigns.

With the help of artificial intelligence software, Facebook blocked nearly 1.3 billion fake accounts between March and October of last year, according to Chakrabarti.

“We are working hard to amplify the good and mitigate the bad,” news feed director Greg Marra said on the call.

As elections near, Facebook will also encourage civic involvement and voter registration, according to global politics and government outreach director Katie Harbath.

Facebook has partnered with non-profit organizations to bolster election integrity efforts outside the US and has been meeting with other technology companies to coordinate sharing information about election meddling efforts spanning social media platforms, according to Harbath.

Facebook said it has also started working with political campaigns to improve staff online security practices, such as requiring more than just a password to access an account.

AAP Minister Meets Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad, Discuss Strategy To Defeat PM Modi In 2019 Lok Sabha Elections


Chandrashekhar Azad said he would ensure the Bharatiya Janata Party is routed in the general elections

New Delhi: 

AAP minister Rajendra Pal Gautam Wednesday met Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad at his residence in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur district and said people of similar ideology need to come at a common platform to fight the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Throwing the BJP out of power in 2019 is the “sole aim”, a statement from Rajendra Pal Gautam’s office said.

After being released from jail last week, Azad had said he would ensure the Bharatiya Janata Party is routed in the general elections.

Mr Gautam, who is the social welfare minister in the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government, said that Azad’s support will be taken in the Lok Sabha polls for “protecting” the Constitution.

The meeting at Azad’s residence in Chhutmalpur village in Saharanpur lasted over an hour, according to the statement.

“People of similar ideology need to come at a common platform to fight the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls… The people of the country will oust Prime Minister Narendra Modi from power,” it said.

“Ousting the BJP from power in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections is the sole aim,” the statement quoted Mr Gautam as saying.

Azad was arrested from Himachal Pradesh’s Dalhousie in June last year in connection with the May 5 caste violence in which one person was killed and 16 others were injured at Shabbirpur village in Saharanpur.

The Allahabad High Court had granted him bail on November 2, 2017. However, police booked him under the stringent National Security Act days before his release.

Telangana Elections: BJP To Contest Telangana Polls Alone Says Amit Shah: No Tie-Up With TRS


Telangana Polls: The BJP would not have any alliance with the TRS, said Amit Shah in Telangana

Hyderabad: 

Virtually sounding the poll bugle, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday said his party will contest the upcoming Telangana Assembly election on its own.

In the city to formally launch the party’s poll campaign at a public meeting in Mahabubnagar, about 110 km from Telangana’s capital Hyderabad, Mr Shah said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would not go for a tie-up with the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), the ruling party in the southern state.

The BJP would not have any alliance with any party and it hoped to emerge as a “deciding factor” in the upcoming polls, he said.

“We are not going to have any political tie-up with the TRS. The BJP will fight on its own strength. We will fight against appeasement politics also,” Mr Shah told reporters in Hyderabad, before leaving for Mahabubnagar.

The BJP would also fight against the “stalled progress” of the state, he said, when asked about allegations of a tacit understanding between the BJP and the TRS.

On the proposed Grand Alliance of the Congress and other parties in the state, Mr Shah said Telugu people had not forgotten how the Congress had treated their leaders like former (undivided) Andhra Pradesh chief minister Anjaiah and former prime minister PV Narasimha Rao.

Hitting out at the TRS, he claimed that the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led party was earlier in favour of simultaneous elections to the state Assembly and Lok Sabha, but subsequently changed its stand.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi had proposed ‘one nation, one election’. (Caretaker CM) Chandrasekhar Rao had also supported it initially…. I want to ask a straight question to the ruling party (TRS) and the chief minister. Why are you burdening the people with so much of expenditure (due to polls)? What is the reason for advancing the election by nine months?,” Mr Shah asked.

He wanted to know why the state assembly was prematurely dissolved, just a few days after the chief minister had expressed his willingness for simultaneous polls.

Quoting from reports, the BJP chief said 4,200 farmers committed suicide in the state in the last four years and claimed that some of the schemes of the central government were not implemented in Telangana properly.

He said many poll promises such as the “double-bedroom housing scheme” were not fulfilled.

Mr Shah said the centre had allotted funds to the extent of Rs 2.30 lakh crore to Telangana under the 14th Finance Commission as against “a mere Rs 15,000 crore during the 13th Finance Commission”.

He claimed that the state government was not celebrating September 17 (the day the erstwhile Nizam state had merged with the Indian Union in 1948) officially due to “pressure from the AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen) and as part of vote-bank politics”.

“Are we going to handover Telangana to the new-age Razakars (private militia that had resisted the integration of the Hyderabad state into the Dominion of India)? The Telangana people should decide,” the BJP chief said.

He added that despite being aware that there would be no quota based on religion, the TRS government had passed a bill in this regard and sent it to the centre for consent.

Mr Shah said the new districts that were carved out by the TRS government lacked infrastructure.

He slammed the Congress, alleging that it did not allow the OBC Commission Bill to be passed.

Meanwhile, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said the BJP was suffering from “selective amnesia”.

“You (BJP) will not succeed either in Hyderabad or in Telangana. I would like to say that if you have any strategy, Mr Shah, then come to Hyderabad and contest the parliamentary polls from here…,” he said, replying to a query.

Mr Owaisi claimed that the BJP would not be able to save their five assembly seats in Hyderabad as well as the Secunderabad Lok Sabha seat.

He took a dig at the party, saying it was suffering from “selective amnesia”, and claimed that it had forgotten that PM Modi had also advanced the polls when he was the Gujarat chief minister.

Lauding Mr Rao for advancing the polls by nine months, Mr Owaisi said, “It is a bold decision. You (BJP) are scared. You fight it out if you are concerned.”

He said there was no incident of communal violence in Telangana in the last four-and-a-half years.

“There is an atmosphere of peace and growth…we have been saying that the next chief minister will be K Chandrasekhar Rao. Is there any (CM) face in the BJP?,” the AIMIM chief asked.

The party-wise strength in the 120-member Telangana Legislative Assembly before its dissolution was — TRS 82, Congress 17, AIMIM 7, BJP 5, TDP 3, the CPI, CPI (M), Independent and nominated member (one each) and two vacant seats.

Mr Rao had released a list of 105 candidates for the state’s 119 seats immediately after the dissolution of the assembly.
