latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsIf the Narendra Modi government wants to show some contrition for using the governor’s office to destabilise governments in Uttarakhand and Arunachal it has a simple option: Abolish the post Send the oldies who occupy Governor Houses back to their families to spend the rest of their retired lives without being a burden on the Indian exchequer Put the sprawling properties they occupy to some productive use throw open their gardens for morning walks yoga and children to play The Supreme Court verdict on Arunachal Pradesh is the perfect opportunity to reconsider the rationale of appointing governors For years the Centre had used the Governor House to meddle in the affairs of democratically-elected governments Since the days of Indira Gandhi many Governors have been accused of being the Centre’s spies musclemen and agents But after the Arunachal Pradesh verdict it is clear that the days of governors using their discretion to destabilise governments is over "The governor must remain aloof from any disagreement discord disharmony discontent or dissension within individual political parties" a five-judge Constitution bench said while restoring the Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh File image of Narendra Modi Getty Images "The governor must keep clear of any political horse-trading and even unsavoury political manipulations irrespective of the degree of their ethical repulsiveness Who should or should not be a leader of a political party is a political question to be dealt with and resolved privately by the political party itself The governor cannot make such issues a matter of his concern" the court said So how does the Centre now benefit from retaining governors who have been stripped off their powers to keep rival parties in check Deprived of their ability to destabilise governments they would be of little use to Delhi The governor’s post is largely a ceremonial one In public opinion a governor is linked with Republic Day pageantry and government-dictated addresses to the Assembly when their sessions are reconvened Sometimes they ask the government to reconsider some bills But their advice is not binding None of this makes the governor indispensable The governor gets some importance also when new governments are to be formed or sworn in Till a few years ago in the event of a hung assembly the powers vested in him left some scope for manipulation But now the procedure has been well laid out–single largest party or pre-poll alliance gets the first shot So the Governor has no discretionary powers And do we really need to spend so much just to have someone who can administer oath of office and secrecy to a CM and his team Since the chief justice of a high court is also empowered to do that why not let him perform this ceremonial duty If the dispensability of Governor’s role is not a compelling factor think of Narayan Dutt Tiwari JP Rajkhowa and Ram Naresh three retirees who brought disrepute and charges of impropriety to the office A few years ago Tiwari was caught on camera in the company of young women playing out his perverse fantasies in the Raj Bhavan His shameful conduct had triggered calls for abolishing the post but the UPA could not muster the courage for it But Rajkhowa’s conduct must The Arunachal Pradesh governor turned into the butt of jokes when he passed on fiction and fantasies as the rationale behind dismissing the Congress government One of his arguments was that there could be unrest because of slaughter of ”cows" in the streets of Arunachal Pradesh a crime he claimed to have witnessed It showed Rajkhowa’s complete lack of knowledge of the customs of the state he was governing In Arunachal Pradesh it is customary for people to slaughter ”Mithunas" a bovine species Rajkhowa confused with gau mata and raised an alarm Then there is the strange case of Madhya Pradesh governor Ram Naresh Yadav a Congress appointee who has mysteriously hung on in the Modi government in spite of facing serious allegations in connection with the Vyapam recruitment probe In its recommendations to the government the Sarkaria Commission had suggested sweeping reforms in the appointment of governors It had suggested that only eminent persons who have stayed away from active politics for a long period be appointed in consultation with the chief minister of the state Vice-President of India and the Speaker of the Lok Sabha But no government bothered to implement the reforms Every party in power at the Centre used it as a reward for loyalists stooges or as a ruse for shielding them from legal proceedings — case in point Sheila Dikshit who was sent to Raj Bhavan soon after losing the 2013 Assembly polls amidst charges of corruption Had the recommendations been accepted the governor’s office may have retained some of its legitimacy and credibility Abolishing the post would now be the only remedy And deserved repentance By: Reuters | Published: October 6 2017 10:21 am Paraguay turned the match in last three minutes scoring two vital goals against Colombia to clinch the

2016 12:49 am K P Oli Top News K P Oli’s exit as Nepal’s prime minister when the vote of no-confidence against him is put to vote is a foregone conclusion but will any one succeed him constitutionally The interested parties and partisan lawyers are interpreting the situation in ways that suit their purposes After ensuring Oli’s defeat in the no-trust motion the challenge before the sponsors of the motion is to not let the prime minister continue in a caretaker capacity for long Letting him do so will lead to Oli becoming more powerful and far less accountable The dangerous precedents in Nepal’s long transition to a republic — an interim PM continuing for long at least three caretaker prime ministers holding on to their posts for seven to 14 months and a sitting chief justice collaborating with political parties — and vague provisions in the constitution about a successor to the PM leaves the matter to President Bidhya Devi Bhandari’s discretion But given her past — vice chairperson in the Oli-led Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist — is not likely to escape the ire of the aggrieved parties even if her decision is fair by all yardsticks The Nepali Congress and the Maoists are determined that any move by the president to stall the election of Maoist chief Pushpa Kamal Dahal as Oli’s successor on the pretext that there is no constitutional clarity over succession will lead to Bhandari’s impeachment That shows the level of distrust among the political parties that were together in the movement for restoration of democracy in 2006 In September 2015 nine years after they assumed power they delivered a half-baked constitution which the two sides now at loggerheads claimed to be the best in the world However the three major parties — Nepali Congress and the Maoists on one side and the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist that Oli heads on the other — are disputing the constitution’s provisions on finding a successor to a PM who has lost the house’s trust The matter is not likely to be settled by the merits of their arguments or through an emulation of best practices in Nepal or elsewhere in the world The side that has the numbers will win this tussle On Friday Oli refused to put in his papers in exchange of the sponsors of the no-trust motion withdrawing their motion and passing the finance bills in one go Speaker Onsari Gharti who belongs to the Maoist Party deferred the debate on the motion by a day to give the parties time to come to a consensus on Oli’s successor But he finally gave in Interestingly the Maoists voted against the finance bills that were tabled by the Oli government when they were part of the coalition Nepal has been ruled by unstable coalitions for a decade But unlike in the past the issue this time is not about “who will succeed” Political circles are debating “what will happen” to Nepal’s growing — and meaningful — proximity to China in proportion to its distance with India Given China’s clear message that its president Xi Jinping will visit Nepal in a few months only if there is political stability in the country any failure to resolve the political impasse will be deemed a setback For India that will be something to cheer about as not only did Oli take an anti-India position in the wake of its “interference” and its refusal to welcome the constitution but he also directed the focus of his country’s foreign policy northward after the five-month long blockade created hardship and shortage in Nepal In March Nepal and China signed some transit agreements China secured the contract to build an international airport in the tourist city of Pokhara where it will set up a consulate soon Seen in the light of China’s growing engagement with Nepal to the detriment of India President Xi’s visit would have been a milestone “The withdrawal of support to the K P Oli government by the Maoists is clearly a move at the behest of external forces who are interested in stalling the Chinese president’s visit” Sherdhan Rai communication minister in the current coalition says Oli was not as explicit but at his party meeting he is said to have expressed suspicion that India had a role in instigating the no-trust motion Whether that’s an angry reaction or one borne out of evidence is anybody’s guess but India has often been charged of “micromanaging Nepal affairs” —including by the Maoist chief Dahal But in the clash of perceptions over foreign influence the role of the constitution will cease to matter and the sanctity of the offices of the speaker and the president is likely to be adversely affected This is likely to have an effect on the morale and functioning of the security agencies including Nepal’s army as well as the civil administration [email protected] For all

husband Ram Vilas both visually impaired waited to cast their vote at ward number 35 in Karala village The police constable who had guided Ram Deepa and their toddler into the polling booth prompted a
