Affidavits on politicians' wealth must be challenged

The question we must ask is how do politicians get that wealth disclosed in the affidavits, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. For the past decade, after a Public Interest Litigation, the Election Commission requires a mandatory filing of affidavits by all candidates disclosing criminal, financial and educational background prior to the polls by filing an affidavit along with the nomination papers. This has helped bring out the profile of the candidates on crucial issues but it has not been enough. Here ... Rediff.com, 1 month ago

If only Uddhav had held his tongue, and Saamna its acerbity

It is some consolation that the BJP top brass which had kept the Sena on the ice has now said that it would be happy to have the former partner in the government. What it did not say openly is that it would be on the BJP’s terms, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. If only Uddhav Thackeray and his party mouth piece Saamna had minded their words, avoided such metaphors as aulads of Afzal Khan, Dilli ki billi, and a reference to Narendra Modi’s baap, the Shiv Sena, despite being a rival in the ...

Pawar play to keep NCP out of trouble, Sena out of govt

The NCP has seen the largest flow from its ranks to the other parties, more towards the BJP before the elections, even up to the last minute. The Sena and BJP together could, in power, become even bigger magnets. Disillusionment with the NCP leadership has been growing, which may have forced its hand, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. The Nationalist Congress Party’s offer of outside support to Bharatiya Janata Party will now have all conspiracy theorists to say that this was a foretold ...

Will Maharashtra see the end of the coalition era?

The vituperative campaign against the BJP by the Shiv Sena does not make for an easy post-poll tie-up should either of the two be forced to come together to cobble the numbers. Either must get a clear 145 seats to avoid a forced remarriage to the same political spouse. Any one going with Congress or the NCP only means the platter serves up a goulash, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. A day after the public campaign for Maharashtra assembly polls ended -- the traditional surreptitious money, liquor, gifts ...

Greed for power behind Maharashtra break-ups

When political parties opt for alliances, it is to win an election, and if post-poll, to come to power by cobbling together the numbers to secure a majority. This has been a striking feature of Indian politics, throwing up such screens as ‘coalition dharma’ to hide all ills, including corruption, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. The break-up of two alliances, the Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena on one hand, and Congress-Nationalist Congress Party on the other, and additions of smaller ...

A House of the People? Or Chamber of Princes?

No wonder Parliament has some 130 MPs out of the 545 hailing from political families. This class threaten to make the Lok Sabha, which the People’s House, into a sort of Chamber of Princes which we once had before Independence, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. Varied interpretations are flowing about the by-election results of several state assemblies announced on Tuesday. They include a sudden comeback by the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, a strong spark of hope were Congress to work harder as ...

Modi should address teachers not students

Why does Modi want to speak to the students while his audience should be teachers and parents, not necessarily in that order. And September 5 is not Children’s Day but Teachers’ Day, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. Call it what you will -- Teachers’ Day, as was the case since the practice it began to mark Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birthday -- or Guru Utsav, the new usage by the ministry of human resource development, the important thing would be what message Narendra Modi ...

To the BMC, CCTVs are anti-opacity

Given that Mumbai civic body deals with the lives of the people at the cutting edge, the better way would have been to agree to have giant television screens put up outside the civic headquarters to relay the proceedings live so the people are kept in the loop. It eliminates to an extent the distance between the people and their civic keepers but perhaps it is farfetched now, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. Why is the opposition in Mumbai’s civic body fuming because two CCTV cameras have been ...

This dahi handi, the law was invisible

When the high court delivered the stringent norms, which in no way eliminated the fun of the proceedings but made it safer, by requiring proper safety measures, there was an undercurrent of defiance. Sensing the adverse implications of loss of a mass contact platform, the government persuaded itself to seek a review, says Mahesh Vijapurkar. This year’s Dahi handi had every feature on display which is seen every year: tall human pyramids, din beyond the allowed 65 decibels, paid-for ...
