NewsAs Prime Minister Narendra Modi was preparing to meet Donald and Melania Trump at the White House China on Monday launched a scathing attack on the Indian Army accusing it of stopping the construction of a road in what it called its "sovereign territory" in the Sikkim section of the India-China border Representational image PTI Chinese defence ministry spokesman in an official statement further said that the Indian Army’s act has "seriously damaged" border’s peace and tranquility The statement came out hours after news of Chinese troops transgressing into the Indian side in Sikkim and jostling with the Indian troops were reported by the media The face-off between the soldiers of the two armies started in the first week of June and continued for ten days at Doka La general area in Sikkim After the scuffle the report stated the Chinese troops entered the Indian territory and destroyed two makeshift bunkers of the Indian Army According to PTI the incident was apparently the reason why China didn’t allow 47 Indian pilgrims from crossing through Nathu La border in Sikkim into Tibet to visit Kailash and Manasarovar last week Concerned about drones sale Meanwhile in a Hindustan Times article a senior Chinese disarmament strategist said that China is more concerned about the sale of US surveillance drones to India which will help New Delhi to keep a closer watch over the strategically important Indian Ocean The strategist Han Hua further said that China is "concerned" about the growing US-India strategic partnership ever since the civil nuclear deal was signed between the two countries “After the Bush administration opened the door to India people in Washington have been talking about India’s role in checking China’s rise” Hua told Hindustan Times Criticism of India-Afghanistan air corridor Chinese media has also come down heavily on the India-Afghanistan dedicated air corridor which bypasses Pakistan and called India as being “stubborn” in its geo-political thinking In its report the state-run Global Times asked that the already launched and the proposed routes between India Afghanistan and Iran “This begs a question: Will India bypass Pakistan to develop trade with Afghanistan and other Central Asian countries” "All such connectivity efforts have not only signalled India’s desire to more actively participate in regional economic development but have also highlighted the country’s stubborn geopolitical thinking” the article adds “India has always been pushing back against the Belt and Road (B&R) initiative so its intention to create its own connectivity network appears to be a strategy to counterbalance the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor" China’s ‘shuttle diplomacy’ between Pakistan Afghanistan Pakistan has always accused India of meddling in Afghanistan and creating a rift between the two neighbouring countries Perhaps to help out its "all-weather friend" China has come forward to ease tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan this time China will conduct the shuttle diplomacy between Afghanistan and Pakistan Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said during his visit to both the countries according to Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang Yi visited Islamabad and Kabul on 24 and 25 June During the visit the two countries agreed to establish the bilateral crisis management mechanism Geng said The main targets for the visit are to implement the consensus between the state leaders and in addition the requirement of Afghanistan and Pakistan as directed by Chinese leaders he said "We will conduct shuttle diplomacy to help improve relations between the two countries within our capacity and also to promote the peace process in Afghanistan" Geng said With inputs from PTI New Delhi: Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday asked citizens to click picture of wrongly parked cars and send to authorities while proposing a 10 percent reward for them from Rs 500 fine imposed on the owner of the concerned vehicle Gadkari said he felt "ashamed" that absence of parking lots outside his own Ministry forced "ambassadors" and "big people" to park on road blocking the way to Parliament "In my Motor Vehicle Act I am going to add one law (provision) Any car on road you just take the photo on your mobile and send it to the department concerned or Police There will be Rs 500 fine and 10 percent will go to the complainant" Gadkari said on Monday Transport minister Nitin Gadkari "No parking places are available People are using roads for that" he said The minister said big institutions should have their parking places He said "every day it is shameful for me.the Ambassadors are coming . the big people are coming Infront of Parliament my total road is blocked and for getting permission to build a parking place I needed 13 permissions" He said it took months to take permission for constructing a single parking lot and he had raised the issue with the then Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu Gadkari during the laying of foundation stone for his own Ministry’s automate parking had said in May 2016 that he felt "ashamed" that his own ministry had to wait nine months to get approvals for a ‘simple automated parking lot’ Gadkari who has been very keen on this project had expressed anguish over this delay at its foundation laying ceremony at Transport Bhawan near Parliament prompting Naidu to promise a one-month cap on grant of all such permissions Transport Bhawan will be the first government building to have an automated multi level car parking facility in its premises at a cost of about Rs 9 crore The automated parking lot project is being undertaken by NHIDCL The facility will comprise ground plus seven floors Spread over an area of 314 sq metres and with a height of 22 metres the facility will be able to house 112 cars The retrieving time for cars will be 120 seconds The Motor Vehicles Bill which aims to usher in far- reaching reforms in the transport sector was in August referred to a 24-member Select Committee of the Rajya Sabha The committee will have to submit its report to the Rajya Sabha by the first day of the next session "without extension of time Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P J Kurien has said The bill aims at bringing sweeping reforms in the transport sector ranging from hefty fines for traffic rules violations to improving the licensing system and checking bogus licenses He has never contested an Assembly election lost once in the two times he contested as a Lok Sabha MP and yet on 6 June Congress leader V Narayanasamy will become Puducherry’s new Chief Minister He will become only the second person to assume the office of Chief Minister without having a seat in the House In spite of strong opposition and lobbying within and outside his party the Indian National Congress he is all set to take the reins in the Union Territory When his name was first announced there were a series of protests by members of his own party against the decision “How can someone who did not even contest the elections become the Chief Minister” a protester argued Over the years Narayanasamy has collected a number of political rivals within and outside his party His nickname ‘Nari’ meaning fox in Tamil is a nod to his reputation for being a wily politician Since 1985 he has spent most of his time in New Delhi but has still managed to play an active role in Puducherry politics earning himself the reputation of being a ‘kingmaker’ “For many years Narayanasamy has dreamed of becoming the Chief Minister but was always overlooked Now his dream has come true” a senior Congress party member said requesting anonymity “Through the years he has made a number of political enemies because of his extreme loyalty to the party but it is the same loyalty that has ensured that he held important posts in the UPA governments and made him CM now” he added File photo of V Narayanasamy Image courtesy: PIB Narayanasamy comes from a humble background His father Velu was a toddy tapper in a small village Thavalakkuppam in the Union Territory Narayanasamy was the first graduate in his family After his bachelor’s degree in Tagore Arts College he studied law in Annamalai University Chidambaram and even practiced for some time before he entered politics He joined the Congress in his late twenties and his loyalty to the party and the Congress first family is legendary Last December a video of him offering Rahul Gandhi his slippers during the party leader’s visit to Puducherry during the floods went viral When asked about it Narayanasamy brushed it off as a gesture of courtesy “Rahulji had to remove the shoes he was wearing so I offered my slippers for him to wear” he explained to reporters after the event His loyalty to the family is said to have started in the early 1980s when Rajiv Gandhi nominated him as the Rajya Sabha MP from Puducherry According to N Nandhivarman political historian it was around this time that Narayanasamy earned his nickname“Narayanasamy was not the first choice in 1985; the central leadership was to nominate Poornankuppam B Chandrasekaran for the post” he explained Allegations that Chandrasekaran would not be loyal to the party and had not participated in a protest held in Puducherry when Indira Gandhi was arrested led to an inquiry “When both Narayanasamy and Chandrasekaran went for an interview with Rajiv Gandhi there were rumours that Narayanasamy made it difficult for the inquiry to take place in a fair manner That was how Narayanasamy became the MP” Nandhivarman said The nickname Nari defines his presence in Puducherry politics “Narayanasamy has played a role in all of the major political upheavals in Puducherry including the removal of N Rangasamy as Chief Minister in 2008 He is an expert at political subterfuge and has used it many times This is what has earned him many rivals especially former Rajya Sabha MP P Kannan and former Chief Minister N Rangasamy” another senior Congress party member said adding that even within the party people were wary of Narayanasamy His clever political moves even earned him several important posts within the Congress including AICC General Secretary Since 1985 Narayanasamy has spent most of his time in New Delhi and was part of Rajiv Gandhi’s ‘shouting brigade’ in the Parliament along with SS Ahluwalia Suresh Pachouri and Ratnakar Pandey When Narasimha Rao was Prime Minister Narayanasamy became the parliamentary party leader and was instrumental in the delay of the Congress letter of support to the United Front Government in 1996 During the UPA I and II he held a number of important posts including that of the Union Minister of State for the Prime Minister’s Office Personnel Public Grievances & Pensions and Public Affairs He has been a member of many Parliamentary subcommittees and goodwill delegations “As a result of his visits to New Delhi he has not been in touch with the people in Puducherry Since he hasn’t contested any assembly elections and does not have a constituency people do not recognise him much This could be a problem for him as Chief Minister if he is unable to relate to the people in Puducherry” a senior member of the rival All India NR Congress former Chief Minister N Rangasam said Congress Chief Ministers Narayanasamy will be the tenth person to become Chief Minister in the Union Territory and so far 18 governments have been formed “In the history of Puducherry politics however only four chief ministers have ever completed their full term of five years in office” former Chief Minister MD Ramachandran said In terms of contesting elections Narayanasamy has very little experience He was a Rajya Sabha MP for three terms and he won only once in the two times he contested for the Lok Sabha He will be only the second person in the UT after his mentor P Shanmugam to become Chief Minister without having contested the elections He now has six months to contest and win in one of the constituencies and it is expected that he will contest in the Raj Bhavan Constituency Even now several Congress leaders attribute the party’s victory to Narayanasamy’s tactics “He was the first person to bring in several businessmen like John Kumar and Sivakolundu These businessmen helped pump in money to ensure the party’s victory and since they had no knowledge of politics they would remain loyal to him” a senior politician said These new entrants into politics helped the Congress win at least eight of the 15 seats where it contested In most cases either the government has been toppled by an alliance or the MLAs within the party have rebelled and ensured that the party removed the chief minister themselves “S Ramaswamy from the AIADMK ruled only for 22 days in his first stint as CM in 1974 In most cases it was rebellion within the party that led to the government toppling or the Chief Minister being replaced” he said When the mere announcement that Narayanasamy would be CM led to protests and violence in the Union Territory it is an ominous portent for whether Narayanasamy will be able to complete his full term as Chief Minister However Congress members hope that the combination of Narayanasamy and the new Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi will be able to bring a struggling Puducherry economy back on its feet United, who finished fourth in the league last season, even when we lost.
