flooded Brahmaputra river into Bangladesh The cow elephant was washed away in Junefrom Kaziranga National Park and reached Kurigram district in Bangladesh bordering Dhubri district of Assam Bangladesh officials have informed the Assam government that the cow elephant was in good health now Earlier she was found to be weak and stressed as the locals drove her off from one place to another Elephants stroll in Kaziranga National Park Reuters Assam has now turned to wise counsel of its experts to get the elephant back home Assam’s Principal Chief Conservator of Forests Bikash Brahma said a three-member expert team is likely to go to Bangladesh early August "The Ministry of External Affairs has cleared the necessary formalities We hope to get other formalities like visa to be over by end of this month" Brahma said on Wednesday However nobody is sure about how to go about solving the weighty problem "The team will first meet the Bangladesh forest department officials and study the feasibility on how to bring the elephant back and then take a decision" Brahma said The three experts are retired senior forest department official Ritesh Bhattacharyya serving Divisional Forest Official (DFO) Suleiman Choudhury and serving veterinarian KK Sarma "All of them have substantial experience to handle such a situation" Brahma said adding that probably effort will be made to tranquilise the elephant The Assam forest department officials tried to rescue the elephant when it was spotted first near Guwahati while floating in the Brahmaputra river However the attempts failed

expensive snobbish schools and colleges who are still prejudiced about caste class religion sex and colour Related News Since 1947 Indians have not spoken out so strongly and clearly for a completely new brand of people running government Mercifully there are no ministers educated abroad Thankfully none of them has been brainwashed at Harvard Stanford Cambridge the World Bank or the IMF subtly forcing expensive Western solutions on typically Indian problems at the cost of the poor Look what the high-powered foreign-returned degree-wallahs have reduced this country to They wasted opportunities to show the inner strength of what is essentially Indian because they never really knew their own people living in Bharat In the eyes of the world we have lost our self-respect dignity and identity All the ministers now have gone through average government schools Some have never been to college Many have experienced poverty exploitation injustice and discrimination at some point of time in their lives It is truly the first barefoot government ever to be voted into power in independent India Where else in the world would you have a one-time tea-seller on a railway station becoming prime minister shaping the destiny of more than one billion people The first example the Modi government must set is by drastically reducing the perks and privileges of MPs Free power food housing travel to those whose personal assets run into crores and a Rs 2 crore annual fund for development (read patronage) for over 500 MPs is costing the exchequer nearly Rs 2000 crore Only the prime minister will be able to make it happen and at the same time stifle any dissent from BJP MPs The time is now No other government in the world has a Class 12-pass woman minister speaking as an equal to almost 120 heavily qualified on paper vice chancellors (90 per cent male) Today as we judge them the VCs are all too intellectually and morally fatigued There is something dreadfully wrong with an education system that produces graduates from even private expensive snobbish schools and colleges who are still prejudiced about caste class religion sex and colour These “graduates” who roam the streets of small towns and cities by the thousands call themselves “educated” practice the worst forms of cruelty slavery and crimes against humanity against society and in their own families Indeed some of them rose to the level of their incompetence by becoming ministers in previous governments reinforcing the status quo wasting vast public resources by implementing silly Western ideas listening to foreign-returned “experts” and making a hopeless mess of this country The tragedy is that they cannot see the colossal damage they have done to the very fabric of this country Now they will call me a “namak haram” because I went to Doon School and St Stephen’s College and I am trashing my own kind They deserve it Their snobbish elitist education has made them arrogant inaccessible insensitive and devoid of any humanity or humility Just because they received a Western education they think they know their country Superficially they may know urban India but they are clueless about rural Bharat Alvin Toffler in his book Future Shock said “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be someone who cannot read or write It will be someone who is not prepared to learn unlearn and relearn” In the 40 years that I have lived and worked with the rural poor in Rajasthan what have I learnt that I did not manage to make my own kind “unlearn and relearn” It was not for want of trying What did the prime minister the deputy chairman of the Planning Commission and finance minister of the decimated UPA government have in common They were all “educated” abroad They were all for subsidising the rich and cutting subsidies for the poor They had no idea about real poverty and hunger and how the rural poor survived expecting the whole country to be gullible enough to believe that the rural poor today could survive on Rs 27 per day Out of sheer ignorance of rural realities and showing extremely poor political judgement the three of them almost managed to strangle the MGNREGA The MGNREGA prevented migration by the millions into cities The bungling and corruption by village officials notwithstanding the rural poor now have more money to spend on food clothing housing and essentials So of course prices will go up The prime minister is evidently serious about improving the quality of life of the rural poor as he eloquently stated in his speech on Independence Day So what are the out of the box solutions that need to be considered urgently The MGNREGA should stay with “Modi-fications” Pay minimum wages which the Congress’s three armchair foreign-returned economists so stubbornly and unethically refused to do in spite of a high court order Make it more transparent and accountable take action against corrupt officials exposed in social audits to set an example Pass the public grievance bill in Parliament as soon as possible Call a meeting of respected grassroot practitioners across political ideologies who know the MGNREGA from the village level and follow up on their recommendations The focus has to be on innovative job creation in the rural areas Provide 100 days of employment at minimum wages to construct low-cost toilets for girls and rooftop rainwater harvesting tanks for drinking water tree plantations and flush toilets in rural schools by the thousands Construct rural godowns to store food grains instead of letting nearly 5 million tonnes of grain just rot in the open Start community colleges on Gandhian lines instead of sending delegations of “experts” on education to study the American model There are enough indigenous examples to replicate and scale up Civil society is riddled with defeated politicians and retired bureaucrats who having lost their power influence and privileges have started NGOs While they were in power they did not lift a finger to help them When these has-beens have nothing better to do they start NGOs They give genuine small civil society organisations a bad name Maybe it is time to revive the debate of the 1980s on the need for a code of conduct for NGOs The code would expect them to have a simple lifestyle take a living wage instead of a market wage and observe the laws of the country If we are fighting against crony capitalism we should also fight against cronyism in NGOs When the Council for Advancement of People’s Action and Rural Technology (CAPART) was closed down and replaced by a Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation (BRLF) in September 2013 it was done in complete secrecy The BRLF was never widely publicised and civil society was never invited to contribute to its formation It is designed to benefit a handful of select organisations — cronyism of the worst kind It was so much in contrast to the open debate that galvanised the voluntary sector over the code of conduct and which preceded the merger of the People’s Action for Development India (PADI) and the Council for Advancement of Rural Technology (CART) to form CAPART in 1986 What needs to be done Replace the national advisory council (NAC) with a voluntary action commission (VAC) The mandate of the VAC should be to identify the thousands of genuine grassroots groups who have an FCRA registration and submit their report to the home ministry It is not the job of the home ministry to judge the incredible work of community-based organisations A lot of effort has gone into the formulation of the BRLF Let it remain But demand of the existing management if they have theself-respect to resign en masse and let the new government bring in new members [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News

cash crunch in the party In the earlier two polls getting money for campaign was a simple procedure A request was sent to Ahmed Patel who cleared the amount and it was forwarded to party treasurer Motilal Vora who disbursed the amount But this time there are conflicting signals with candidates being given the run around between numbers 10 12 and 23 (It’s a common Congress practice not to mention the names of leaders whose offices they are referring to but simply give the number of their houses) The three crucial addresses being 10 Janpath (Sonia Gandhi) 12 Tughlaq Lane (Rahul) and 23 Willingdon Crescent (Ahmed Patel) There is also confusion in the selection of candidates While people in number 12 claim that they call the shots numbers 10 and 23 seem to have more of a say in the actual selection This is because number 10 asks the opinion of old guards including Ghulam Nabi Azad Ahmed Patel Ambika Soni A K Antony and Janardhan Dwivedi before deciding on a candidate Caste a vote Narendra Modi’s right-hand man Amit Shah was the first from the BJP to break the mould to play the caste card in Uttar Pradesh When Shah first arrived in Lucknow to head the party’s Uttar Pradesh campaign he mentioned that Modi was an OBC Modi was so upset that he scolded Shah for 15 minutes for raising the caste issue The RSS rails against caste divisions in Hindu society But the caste card was such a success that now even Modi occasionally brings up his caste origins in eastern UP and Bihar Past forgotten The Congress began its advertising campaign in January and reportedly spent around Rs 400 crore in the first round of advertisements for Rahul Gandhi The BJP started in March but it has already outdone the Congress Ads seeking votes for Narendra Modi are far more visible in the media The Congress now has a shortage of funds and is regretting its first flush of ads which many feel did not convey the message effectively One complaint is that the Rahul ads are in black and white and look like government hoardings that do not catch the eye unlike Modi’s colourful posters with kurtas in different hues Many senior Congressmen are perturbed to find that the ads centre around only Rahul In the past the party tradition was to focus on the illustrious Gandhi family and photographs of Indira Rahul and Sonia were prominent In the BJP too the campaign has omitted pictures of party stalwarts like Atal Bihari Vajpayee L K Advani and Rajnath Singh But in the latter case the strategy seems to be working No Priyanka as yet The curious remark by Janardhan Dwivedi that Rajiv Gandhi had appreciated his daughter Priyanka’s political acumen way back in 1990 has created a buzz in the Congress Particularly as it has been followed by a whisper campaign that Indira Gandhi in her last days had recognised the similarities between Priyanka and herself and wanted the granddaughter to be her political heir Indira is said to have confided in her aide Makhan Lal Fotedar who is reported to have conveyed her sentiments to both Rahul and Sonia These suggestive remarks by the party’s old guard in the middle of the campaign are seen as an attempt to make Sonia realise that Rahul on his own cannot meet the challenge from Modi and that Priyanka’s services should be utilised to a greater extent Sonia however rejected suggestions that Priyanka should contest against Modi in Varanasi Poster imperfect Congress candidate from Vadodara Madhusudan Mistry screamed foul play when he came to the city and discovered that Modi had already monopolised all the hoardings Actually the company in charge of renting out billboard space in the city had first contacted Narendra Rawat the original Congress candidate from the city Low-key Rawat turned down the opportunity to rent the space on the grounds that he did not have the budget Meanwhile Modi announced his candidature from the city and booked all the display space available When Mistry replaced Rawat as the party candidate he wanted to make the point that Modi had an unfair advantage in having bagged all the hoardings As a protest he tried to paste his own posters over Modi’s picture But before he could do so the Vadodara police removed the ladder on which he was standing charging him with vandalism Worse the photo of Mistry trying to replace posters which went viral showed him in the
