Odisha voters give conflicting signals keep parties guessing

first_imgnational elections COMMENTS COMMENT SHARE Published on While main contest seems to be between the BJD and BJP, the Congress, too, is trying its best to bounce back After 19 years of having Naveen Patnaik at the helm, voters seem ready for a change. But to what extent it will translate into seats for the BJP, or even the Congress, remains an open question.“Many say the people of Odisha have decided to vote for the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in the Assembly and the BJP at the Centre. It may be true as the BJP has fielded some good candidates, with an impeccable track record, in the Lok Sabha constituencies. But I think the estimates of the BJP winning 12 of the 21 Lok Sabha seats are a bit far-fetched,” said Bijaya Behera, a radio-taxi driver from Cuttack.Ranjan Kumar Mohanty, coordinator of Odisha Election Watch, a civil society organisation, said: “The voters in Odisha are a confused lot as candidates are switching parties like never before.”Candidates being denied ticket by one party are being immediately taken in by the other, and ideologies seem to have lost their meaning, he said, adding that this was making it difficult for the voter to decide.In Kendrapara constituency, which has been traditionally a “BJD bastion”, two-time MP Baijayant Panda’s switch to the BJP has created uncertainty over whom the people will vote for — the party or the candidate.BJP contestant for the Bhubaneswar Lok Sabha Constituency Aparajita Sarangi, however, is sure that the people in Odisha will vote for her party as they are tired of the corruption. “Popularity of the BJD has waned drastically in the last five years and people say they want change. They are showing enthusiasm for the BJP. The party’s organisational strength has also improved which will get us results this time,” said Sarangi, who joined the party a few months back after resigning from the IAS.BJD’s contestant from the Cuttack Lok Sabha seat Bhatruhari Mahtab brushed away BJP’s claim of being the people’s choice.“During the previous Lok Sabha elections, too, the BJP created hype around Narendra Modi and he campaigned vigorously. Despite that, they got just one seat. The people trust Naveen Babu,” Mahtab said.Ganesh Rao, a BJD supporter in Puri, said Patnaik’s work in the social sector alone was enough to pull him through. “Women get monetary support from the time of their pregnancy till the child grows up. Schools are providing quality education. PDS is functioning well. People also get money and certain items for the last rites of the dead,” he said.What critics sayCritics said the BJD leadership doesn’t have control over the party any more. “People think this is the last term of the BJD. So when they don’t get a ticket they just resign,” said Mohammed Moquim, Congress’ candidate from Cuttack.“While the BJD has declined, the Congress has grown in the State. The BJP, too, is trying to increase its influence. So in most places, it is a triangular fight,” he said, adding that the Congress’ tie-up with the Left parties would also serve the party well.center_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL Orissa Elections 2019 April 11, 2019 After 19 years of having Naveen Patnaik at the helm, voters seem ready for a change.

HRD panel recommends 4year undergraduate degree programme on lines of scrapped FYUP

first_imgThe existing NEP was framed in 1986 and revised in 1992. The controversial Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), which was scrapped in 2014, may make a come back as a panel constituted by the HRD Ministry has recommended the programme among undergraduate courses reforms for the new National Education Policy. The ministry officials, however, maintained that the committee has submitted its draft and no final decision has been taken yet. The draft of the new National Education Policy (NEP), formulated by a panel led by former ISRO chief K Kasturirangan, was handed over to HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank. He took charge as the Union Human Resource Development minister on Friday. The panel has recommended reintroduction of the four-year course as part of the undergraduate reforms.“Both three-year and four-year courses will be allowed to co-exist, but with multiple exit and entry options. The four-year programme will provide for greater rigour and allow students to conduct research optionally,” the draft said. “Students will graduate with a four-year Liberal Arts Science Education degree with Honours, or may graduate with a B Sc, BA, B Com or B Voc after completing three years with a suitable completion of credits within their subject,” it said. The four-year programme, the BLA or BLE in the chosen major and minors, will provide students the opportunity to experience the full range of liberal arts education. The three-year programme will lead to a Bachelors degree. Both programmes may lead to a degree “with Research”, if the student completes a rigorous research project as specified by the Higher Education Institute (HEI). HEIs may choose to call their three-year undergraduate degree a Bachelor of Arts, or Science, or Vocation, or the appropriate professional field, the draft report suggested.What was Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP)The Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) introduced by the Delhi University under the regime of previous Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh was scrapped by former HRD minister Smriti Irani. The panel has also recommended an overhaul of the teacher education system with the introduction of the four year programme.“Teacher preparation for all school stages will be offered only in multidisciplinary universities through a four year programme, with the curricula and processes being revamped to address current issues with teacher preparation. “Institutions currently offering the two year programme will either transition to this mode or be phased out; no new two year programmes will be given recognition,” it said. The existing NEP was framed in 1986 and revised in 1992. A new education policy was part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s manifesto ahead of the 2014 general election. Apart from Kasturirangan, the committee had eight members, including mathematician Manjul Bhargava. The experts also took into account the report of a panel formed by former HRD minister Smriti Irani and headed by ex-cabinet secretary T S R Subramanian. education Published on policy June 02, 2019 COMMENT SHARE SHARE EMAIL SHARE COMMENTSlast_img read more

Delhis centenarian voters to be treated like VVIPs to get bouquets selfies

first_imgMay 08, 2019 Special arrangements would be made for Delhi voters who are aged 100 and above on polling day, including pick-up and drop facility, and they will be greeted at booths with bouquets and selfies to make them “feel like VVIPs”.Delhi goes to the polls on May 12 and Chief Electoral Officer, Ranbir Singh, said there are 96 centenarian voters in the city, and women outnumber men in this category.“We have been trying for the last four months to identify all voters who are aged 100 or above. This is the first such initiative to cater to such elderly voters who were born before Independence and have seen the first general elections in 1952. For us, they are VVIP voters and they will be treated as such,” Singh told PTI.According to data shared by the Delhi CEO Office, there are 42 male centenarian voters and 54 female.“A senior officer will go to the houses of each of these centenarian voters, residing nearest to the polling station in a constituency, and escort them them to the booths. They will also motivate them to vote, unless they are bedridden and their health doesn’t permit,” the CEO said.“But, if such voters are still eager to vote despite their frailty, we will make all possible arrangements, to ensure they exercise their franchise. They will also be given priority in voting, so they don’t have to stand in line,” he said.At polling stations they will be greeted with bouquets and polling staff would take selfies with them, Singh said.Among the centenarian voters on the electoral rolls are 111-year-old Bachchan Singh, a resident of West Delhi’s Tilak Nagar and 110-year-old Ram Pyari Shankwar, who is suffering from age-related ailments for the last one decade and lives in East Delhi’s Kondli.“He has never missed out on voting as far as I can remember, as he understands the value of even one ballot. He barely remembers things now since he suffered a stroke a couple of months ago, though, he is able to walk and speak. So we will take him to the polling booth,” Bachchan Singh’s grandson, Gurucharan Singh, said.The Delhi CEO said, in keeping with the theme of ‘Accessible Elections’, proper facilities would be provided to voters with disabilities.“For visually-challenged voters, a dummy sheet would be kept at the polling station, on which they can feel and get to know about the candidates, and the serial number before exercising their franchise,” Singh said.A facility for having a companion is also there, besides, wheelchair and ramp facilities would be provided for such voters. As many as 164 candidates are in the fray in Delhi, where the polls is largely being seen as a triangular contest among the AAP, BJP and the Congress.Of the over 1.43 crore voters in Delhi, 78,73,022 are male and 64,42,762 female, while 669 belong to the third gender. The number of overseas electors stands at 40, while the count of service voters is 11,005.

Boks to split resources for tough Rugby Championship schedule

first_img“So with the hand we got dealt, we have to split our resources. However, it also gives us chance to work with some fringe players that we haven’t had a chance to work with.”Erasmus said there are only a few members of his Bok squad who are absolute certainties to start in their positions, and so doesn’t want to use the label of a ‘B’ team for the match against the Wallabies.”You will see when the side is announced for Australia, it isn’t an A or B side, I can give you my word. It will be two competitive sides, because we want to win both games (against Australia and New Zealand),” he added.”When you look at it, what is the difference between Lukhanyo Am and Jesse Kriel? What is the difference between Beast Mtawarira and Steven Kitshoff? What is the difference between Trevor Nyakane and Frans Malherbe? “What is the difference between Eben Etzebeth and Franco Mostert? Or Franco Mostert and Lood de Jager? There are very few players where you can say this one is streets ahead of this one.”That’s the nice thing at this stage, there are four or five positions where you can say this guy is clear cut, first choice. Those first clear-cut choices will probably go to New Zealand (next week).”After their clash in New Zealand, the Boks travel to Salta to face Argentina on Aug. 10, before a home meeting against the South Americans in a one-off test in Pretoria a week later.
