Sinha ignored the established principle of inviting the single largest party in the wake of a fractured mandate and appointed BJP leader Manohar Parrikar as chief minister on Sunday The BJP has 13 MLAs in a House of 40 four less than the Congress A similar situation has developed in Manipur where Governor Najma Heptulla invited the BJP which won fewer seats than the Congress to form the government The Congress should have been invited first The BJP’s claim should have been considered only if the Congress pleaded inability or failed the floor test Both gubernatorial decisions in Goa and in Manipur reek of partisanship Sinha’s invitation to the BJP ostensibly rests on that party hastily submitting letters of support from smaller parties — the MGP and the Goa Forward Party with three MLAs each — and three independents to claim a majority in the House The premise of her decision is questionable: These parties did not fight the election as part of a coalition In fact Goa Forward Party ran an anti-BJP campaign The BJP of course was quick to win over the smaller parties and approach the governor’s office But surely this is not about running the race to the Raj Bhawan faster — speed cannot be the overriding or pressing consideration for the governor while assessing a party’s claim to form government There have been occasions in the past where a party with the support of the largest number of legislators has been preferred over the single largest party in the assembly in government formation But it is also true that those decisions — the Congress and its allies have been beneficiaries — were disputed on grounds of procedure and propriety The Justice MM Punchhi Commission on Centre-State Relations in 2010 laid down some guidelines to be followed in the appointment of a chief minister by a governor It said the governor should invite the leader of “a pre-poll alliance commanding the largest number” or the “largest single party” to form the government in case no party or pre-poll coalition has a clear majority The Sarkaria Commission which studied Centre-state relations in the 1980s held a similar view The CM thus appointed must prove majority as per the guidelines laid down in the Bommai judgment — on the floor of the assembly Ruling on a petition filed by the Congress the Supreme Court asked the BJP government in Goa to prove its majority within 48 hours instead of the 15 days’ leeway given by Governor Sinha But it was a half-measure The court’s reluctance to uphold the principle of inviting the single largest party first and therefore

government should follow his party’s nine recommendations which call for transparency The controversial military courts were formed after the terrorist attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar in December 2014 to quickly dispose off cases against terrorists Watch What Else Is making News Main opposition party Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Zardari said they support an extension to the military courts and have submitted nine recommendations to the government The military courts were disbanded in January after a clause in the Constitution under which they were established expired Since then political parties and government have been unable to reach a consensus to extend the courts’ tenure and revive the clause On February 28 majority of the parties consented to an extension for another two years The meeting was however boycotted by the PPP “Our party has been in the forefront of fight against terrorism and we have made sacrifices but we want a law that defines terrorists that will become a definition for terrorism” Zardari said adding that the PPP had no intention to dishearten the armed forces The recommendations say that military courts shall be presided over by one sessions judge or additional sessions judge with a military officer and that the sessions/additional sessions judge will be nominated by Pakistan’s chief justice The extension period will be for one year and not two years Cases will be subject to judicial review by high courts under Article 199 of the Constitution and High court shall decide case within 60 days All accused to be produced within 24 hours before the concerned court and explanation within 24 hours for their arrest Accused shall have the right to engage counsel of their choice Zardari said his party is open to dialogue whether

Paine,who did notkeep wickets for Tasmania in their opening three Sheffield Shield matches is not even the first-choice keeper for his state team However clearing the air Australia’s selection

position With Tim it’s been widely acknowledged for a small amount of time now that he is regarded as the best gloveman in the country Add that to the fact that he is our T20 wicketkeeper and performs

(Source: Reuters) Top News A year ago Sevilla were regarded as one of the most exciting teams in Europe and a model club but the Andalusian side have struggled to overcome the departures of coach Jorge Sampaoli and sporting director Monchi The void left by the influential pair was glaringly exposed by three consecutive defeats this month 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao 5-1 at Spartak Moscow and 4-0 at Valencia The humiliating defeat in the Russian capital left Sevilla’s hopes of continuing in the Champions League hanging in the balance and they will need to put it behind them on Wednesday in the return game with Spartak at their Sanchez Pizjuan stadium Sevilla Europa League winners three years in a row from 2014-16 will be emboldened against Spartak by their imperious record at home where they are unbeaten in all competitions in 23 games A 2-1 home win over Leganes on Saturday eased the pressure but the shadow of the two departed figures still looms large Argentine coach Eduardo Berizzo was seen as a natural successor to compatriot Sampaoli for his footballing philosophy and background as an assistant to the influential Marcelo Bielsa The former Celta Vigo manager however has been unable to replicate the free flowing high intensity style Sampaoli imposed on the team before being named Argentina coach this year Even though they began the Liga season with four wins from five they benefited from slices of good fortune and were convincingly beaten by quality opposition in the form of Atletico Madrid Bilbao and Valencia The departure of transfer guru Monchi after 17 years with the club has left an even larger hole The former goalkeeper headhunted by AS Roma this year repeatedly brought in impressive low cost players who had escaped the attention of bigger clubs including Dani Alves Ivan Rakitic and Carlos Bacca His replacement Oscar Arias has lacked the same midas touch in the transfer market Colombian striker Luis Muriel a club record signing at 20 million euros from Sampdoria has only scored two goals and winger Nolito has struggled to fill the boots of Spain international Vitolo who had a bitter departure to Atletico Madrid and is currently on loan at

compare him to me I’m always going to lose It’s easy to blame the team’s problems on Monchi not being here” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Subrata Nagchowdhury | Jalpaiguri | Updated: June 8 2014 7:55 am At a ‘Yogdaan’ ceremony in Domohoni village in Jalpaiguri Partha Paul Related News If the record surge in the BJP vote share — from 614 per cent in 2009 to 175 per cent in 2014 — was the headline from elections in West Bengal another story is quietly unfolding away from the media glare: the induction of Muslims into the BJP especially in areas where the party dramatically improved its vote share Over a week as The Indian Express travelled across a swathe of rural West Bengal covering Jalpaiguri Alipurduar Coochbehar Lok Sabha seats and also parts of Raigunj Balurghat and Nadia where the BJP gained the most the story is the same: hundreds of Muslim families in village after village are signing up with the BJP at what are called “Yogdaan” ceremonies held almost on a daily basis since results came on May 16 No cumulative numbers are available yet but according to lists offered by the local BJP units in these places the number would have crossed 50000 in Jalpaiguri alone Their reasons are a blend of political confidence inducement fear and the vacuum created by the local Left leadership all riding on an aggressive hardsell by local BJP leaders who are using Narendra Modi’s name to underline that “development” (jobs protection and money) is on their agenda not Hindutva In a region where 30-40 per cent of the population is Muslim this rhetoric comes with constant references to a Modi-majority Centre So after namaz as New Delhi was preparing for the swearing-in ceremony Samiruddin Mian and over 150 families comprising over 500 voters of Banglarjhar and Patkakhocha villages under Domohoni Village II Panchayat in Jalpaiguri district joined the BJP The venue of this Yogdaan ceremony was a patch of farmland next to a Durga temple teeming with about 3000 new BJP supporters Aliyar Rahaman an elected village panchayat member of Domohoni Block-II was with the Revolutionary Socialist Party a constituent of the Left Front but this election he says has changed equations “Eight village panchayats in this area belonged to the RSP and two to the CPM most of these have now switched to the BJP” says Aliyar Asked why he says: “In the villages we can’t live without politics For generations our fathers and grandfathers have been with the Left Even in this Lok Sabha polls we voted for the Left But we lost miserably Our top leaders have disappeared They are not to be found We want to be with a powerful party BJP is the most powerful party” says Aliyar Says his colleague Azizul Haque: “Muslims have always been safe and secure in this state either under the Left or now in the TMC Here they form nearly 30 per cent of the population this gives us the confidence to test a new political formation and see how that plays out” There is a set pattern in these Yogdaan ceremonies Assembled BJP leaders read out a “pledge” before officially accepting the new entrants The oath reads: “I fully and wholeheartedly announce myself as a nationalist…I believe in national integrity and secular state principles…I am inspired by the ideals and principles of the Bharatiya Janata Party…I pledge to abide and live by the Indian Constitution” At one ceremony as the oath is being read Azizul an elected panchayat member of Singimari-Chandrabad village in Jalpaiguri says many Muslims in his village do not buy the CPM’s line that a Modi victory would endanger their lives “We know what happened in Gujarat but that was 12 years ago” says Azizul “he never said anything anti-Muslim in his speeches” There are three steps to membership Step One: Before the pledge each application is vetted said Shyamal Barman BJP general secretary (Organisation) Jalpaiguri “We weed out those who have misused development funds or have been booked for crimes like rape” he says Step two: a cooling-off period for two months and three signing up primary and active membership forms Under Barman’s jurisdiction in Changrabandha near Mekhliganj — close to the India-Bangladesh border — Asekar Rahaman a 24-year-old graduate tells an assembled crowd in one Yogdaan ceremony: “From today we are BJP’s soldiers I was born a little before Vajpayeeji’s government If the Muslims are to be deported from India to Pakistan and Bangladesh under the BJP’s dispensation then by now I should have been in Pakistan Dhaka or Barishal We have come to realise that the BJP is not a communal outfit” says Asekar The local BJP leader Shyamal Saha visibly elated at Asekar’s speech offers him a “gairik” (saffron) salute “The magnitude of the BJP’s victory has certainly overwhelmed a majority of these Muslims and this is behind their shifting loyalty” admits Deepen Pramanik district president of Jalpaiguri BJP “The Left is defunct in almost all local bodies They don’t find the Trinamool a viable political choice and so they are coming to us” says Pramanik There are some Muslims who admit that fear is a factor too “The fear and panic of living in the extreme margins of a new power structure drove us to this transition In the highly politicised rural environment we need an umbrella of protection from a mighty party Or else we are in danger” says Azizul Haque a former elected panchayat member of Moynaguri who has joined the BJP Asked about Muslim induction in BJP Bijoy Krishna Barman the newly elected TMC MP from Jalpaiguri denies any knowledge But when told about specific examples Barman says: “Yes some people made mistakes But they are now coming to the TMC What does the BJP have to offer them” asks Barman Gautam Deb Minister for North Bengal Development is more cautious He says he is yet to get detailed reports from the field “If it is true we will have to look deep into it” Deb says Speaking to The Indian Express Rezzak Mollah the veteran estranged CPM former state committee member and an important leader of Muslims confirms that “thousands of Muslims” are joining the BJP not only in North Bengal but even in South Bengal districts “It is a massive wave now This is primarily because the CPM and other political parties have failed to give the sense of security and protection to Muslims It’s a choice born out of compulsion The moment an alternative platform can be offered to these sections the Muslims will return” said Mollah who is now building up a Social Justice Manch aimed at Muslims and Dalits At the Alimuddin Street party headquarters in Kolkata the top brass shrugs it off Says Biman Bose politburo member and the state secretary of CPM: “Let detailed reports come to us for scrutiny Till then we are not paying any heed to such rumours” Sukhovilas Verma a retired IAS officer and the defeated Congress MP nominee from Jalpaiguri doesn’t take this as lightly “This (Muslims joining BJP) is a most natural and spontaneous transition in the absence of Congress and a declining Left The Muslims who had been with either the Congress or the Left have little option now but to go for the BJP” says Verma Rahul Sinha the state president of the BJP denies there is any coercion “These people (Muslims) have tried all options and have only been cheated and exploited through their lives They are now falling for a new option in BJP and hoping to get a better deal from a party that has come to rule the country We welcome them” Amid the conflicting claims one thing is clear however The most visible
