tenacity of purpose particularly in economic matters displayed by Modi have been praiseworthy he has disappointed the country with his silence on a range of critical issues While the media have been more than generous in their appraisal of the Prime Minister and his government there is dismay in several quarters at being sold the Hindutva agenda on the sly The new converts to the BJP electorate could feel cheated on two counts: first the slogan ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’ which helped the party break the communal barrier for a comprehensive electoral triumph has been conveniently put to sleep with heavy doses of communal polarisation; second the 100-day deadline to bring down prices check corruption and bring back black money stashed away in overseas banks looks certain to pass with hardly any semblance of success Here’s why the Modi government is has disappointed more than it has brought cheer A nation conned Narendra Modi PTI When the Narendra Modi-led BJP launched its high on bang value campaign against the corrupt and discredited UPA the message it conveyed across the board was clear: it would provide good governance end policy paralysis and kick start economic revival In short it would bring sanity back to the business of ruling the country Three months down the line the nation has reason to feel conned Nowhere during the campaign was it told to the voters that the forces of Hindutva and hate-mongers would have a virtual free run of the country communalising the political and social spaces with reckless enthusiasm The nation voted for Modi in spite of his party’s silent Hindutva agenda and not because of it He sought the nation’s trust on the promise of an even-handed treatment to all communities Now he has virtually made himself blind to the activities of these elements preferring to keep himself busy with only matters of the economy and foreign affairs His silence says it all Under him fears about a slow death of secularism in the country seem to be coming true The government’s intents were questioned even in Japan where the prime minister wowed the people with his elocution drumming skills and bouquets of promises While he invited investors to profit from the concessions someone in the audience asked him about the contradiction between his brand on nationalism and the promised globalisation Modi held forth on the Vedic thought of the whole earth as a family (Vasudhaiva kutumbakam) guiding his party The contrasting reality at home hasn’t however escaped the attention in India Smothering internal democracy It is not just within the party that democracy is drying up The sombre faces of ministers reflect growing mutual distrust within the government too The ‘no-no’ lists are much longer than the ‘to-do lists’ The PMO’s control on the appointment of the ministers’ personal staff set the tone for the one-man show at the outset The bugging of senior minister Nitin Gadkari’s house or the squealing about the Home minister’s son have been denied or refuted by the PMO But the perception about snooping at various levels of government refuses to die down Modi’s arrival at the Centre is by no means considered his departure from Gujarat says an Ahmedabad-based editor He continues to haunt his party members there The Gujarati political adversaries were subjugated through snooping or through mysterious deaths Sworn affidavits of the officers involved in the action are being quoted to substantiate that charge Events so far suggest that the Gujarat method can be extended to other senior leaders in the north too Even if the leaders are not being snooped upon rumours to such effect have had a salutary result Most vocal MPs prefer to keep off the media The government has effectively silenced its ministers and other government functionaries They can’t talk to the media As is often the case with such gag orders they set the rumour mills going The BJP and the Sangh should know it better A newly-elected MP from Madhya Pradesh put it succinctly: "Do you expect a clear answer while asking me whether the PMO is keeping an eye on my movements You wouldn’t get an official denial from the PMO either So just ride your conjectures and be happy" " How often does one see Sushma Swaraj speaking to the media or to the public Can’t you guess the degree of the freedom we have in the government or the party" he asks sarcastically An MP from Vidarbha also fears his cell-phone may be under surveillance by the prime minister’s office "If I’m caught talking to the press my political career will be in trouble” he says Conflicts within Given the media’s continuing love affair with Modi trust it to gloss over the obvious fault lines in the power arrangement involving his government If the demands of several coalition partners cramped the UPA government a three-way conflict of interests has handicapped the Modi government The government swears by secular socialist principles while the RSS and affiliates would want it to further the right wing agenda The party has its political expediencies prompted by friends and foes in different states The recent loss of face in Bihar shows how the changing equations can create new exigencies In Punjab the party was left red-faced over the poaching of an Akali member In Haryana it broke off with Kuldeep Bishnoi outfit on the eve of the elections Conflicts over the arrivals and departures in the party are also raising considerable dust in Madhya Pradesh The gag orders on the protesting members can only provide a temporary solution The RSS has from time to time told the parivar members to keep their wish list on the hold for two years and give the government a free hand Can it be possible with gadflies like Praveen Togadia and Ashok Singhal or Subramaniam Swamy having to sustain their visibility before their constituents With Amit Shah’s appointment as party president the RSS has handed Modi a total control over the party But that does not prevent others like the Shiv Sena and the MNS from pressuring the government on the eve of elections in Maharashtra Personality cult Though the HRD ministry now says the relay of the prime minister’s address to school children on the Teachers’ Day is voluntary the Directorate of Education (DoE) Delhi had indeed shot a notice to all schools in the capital directing them to make arrangements for the address to be telecast On the direction of the Ministry of Human Resource Development the DoE has asked schools to “make available requisite number of televisions set-top box connections projectors screens amplifiers and generator sets/inverters on hiring basis if the same are not available in the school The efficacy of the HRD ministry’s denial is therefore anybody’s guess In Madhya Pradesh the chief minister has personally called upon concerned department to ensure power supply to all schools during the address It is another matter that many schools have no power supply in the state Modi’s eagerness to indoctrinate impressionable young Indians is understandable But should it be made mandatory for the children to listen to him Even the Independence Day speeches of the president the prime ministers have not been made mandatory The party loses the moral right to criticise the Nehrus and Gandhis for building up a personality cult while it does the same for Modi The protest from Bengal and Kerala may have forced a rethink on the part of the government But Modi’s image builders seem to have overstepped the limit Written by Benita Chacko | Mumbai | Published: June 15 2017 3:40 am Attached with 360-degree cameras this technology will help the MMRDA to identify any encroachment or unauthorised construction that comes up in future Top News Facing difficulties in curbing a spate of illegal constructions in areas where it has been appointed as the Special Planning Authority (SPA) the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is considering conducting aerial surveys with unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or drones to map the areas Attached with 360-degree cameras this technology will help the MMRDA to identify any encroachment or unauthorised construction that comes up in future “We have suggested a drone survey for all our SPA areas except the airport We have had discussions about it and are submitting a proposal The data obtained through the survey will prove to be helpful in the long run In cases of encroachments we will have all the data about it” said a senior MMRDA official Currently the planning body makes use of Google Maps to identify encroachments but they have found it to be insufficient as it is unable to give close visuals of an area “With Google Maps we can see if land is vacant or occupied and when it was occupied It also shows us when it was occupied and this helps us in case of illegal occupants But if anybody has built extensions on a structure without permission it is hard to identify that through the maps” he added In areas like Bhiwandi the MMRDA is having a hard time curbing illegal constructions due to lack of documentation Before the MMRDA was appointed as the SPA in 2007 Bhiwandi was under the Gram Panchayat Even after a decade the local body has not handed over the land documents and certificates issued pertaining to the area to the planning body In such cases having mapped data through drone surveys would prove to be beneficial It will help ascertain when the encroachment came up and how much area has been encroached upon “The data received through the drone survey will be parent data that can be accessed by any government body that is appointed in future” said the official With most of these cases ending up in court the data received from the drone survey can be presented as evidence in courts as well The MMRDA also conducts aerial surveys using drones for the construction of metro lines and the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) The technology helps them in

"ridiculous" a federal court ruling that halted his controversial executive order preventing people from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the country and vowed to get it "overturned" The order blocking the ban was issued on Friday by Seattle US District Judge James Robart and is valid across the US jeopardising Trump’s stated plan to prevent radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country File image of US President Donald Trump AP "The opinion of this so-called judge which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country is ridiculous and will be overturned" Trump said in his early morning tweet to his 236 million followers "When a country is no longer able to say who can and who cannot come in & out especially for reasons of safety & security – big trouble" he said in yet another tweet as he lashed out at those who are opposing his ban on people coming from these seven Muslim-majority countries "Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban They know if certain people are allowed in it’s death & destruction" Trump said Trump’s executive order which went into effect a week ago blocks citizens of Iran Iraq Libya Somalia Sudan Syria and Yemen from entry into the US for 90 days while barring entry of Syrian refugees indefinitely and refugees from other countries for 120 days The controversial order which many Democrats have termed as "unconstitutional" and "illegal" has felled protests across US airports where many travellers with valid documents to enter the country have been detained The US President who is spending his weekend at Mar-a-Lago continued to lash out at The New York Times which has been critical of his policies "After being forced to apologise for its bad and inaccurate coverage of me after winning the election the FAKE NEWS @nytimes is still lost" Trump said The New York Times had endorsed Ohio Governor John Kasich in the primaries and Hillary Clinton in the general elections Trump who uses Twitter as a medium of communication with his large support base alleges that traditional media outlets like The New York Times CNN and The Washington Post have been unfair to him in their coverage and very often indulge in inaccurate reporting "Make America Great Again" Trump said in another tweet London: Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League champions saying they must work even harder this season to remain the top club in the country The deal does not extend the Italian’s commitment to the club because he signed a three-year deal when he joined in 2016 but British media reported he has been given improved terms File photo of Chelsea boss Antonio Conte AP "I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing which I am very proud of Now we must work even harder to stay at the top" 47-year-old Italian Conte said Conte who managed Italy at Euro 2016 led Chelsea to the league title at his first attempt last term and they reached the FA Cup final which they lost to London rivals Arsenal The new contract will come as a relief to Chelsea fans after Conte was reported to be frustrated by the club missing out on Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku who was signed by Manchester United last week for 75 million pounds ($9782 million) Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: "Antonio achieved incredible success last season adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title "This new contract reflects our belief that he can continue to

thedefending Australian Open champ looks right at home Novak Djokovic tries his hand at cricket Image courtesy: Twiiter/ICC This spectacular sporting moment took place ahead of the opening of the ongoing Australian Open when during a charity event called ‘A Night with Novak’ held at the Margret Court Arena Warne decided to offer the 12-time Grand Slam champion a cricketing lesson Unfazed by his opposition Djokovic seemed confident as he faced the first ball However the Serb was beaten convincingly by the flight and speed of Warne’s leg-break delivery and went on to hit the stumps Recovering from the moment in typical ‘Djoker’ fashion the Serb quipped that he expected a much faster delivery Warne’s next delivery was quicker and Djokovic managed to heave the ball into the crowd running around the court to signify a run For the final delivery Djokovic swapped out the bat for his tennis racquet and hit Warne for a huge six Other than the batting practise Warne also gave Djokovic quick pointers on bowling But that was not all for the Djoker as he picked up an array of sports later the same day: @AustralianOpen Defending champion #Novak showing his football skills he
