Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsNew Delhi: The printing of electoral bonds will have as much secrecy as being maintained in case of currency notes as the government wants to make this system of political funding foolproof by eliminating any fake instrument coming to market The bonds which will have a tenure of just 15 days cannot be gifted to a new political party so as to ensure that new outfits are not floated overnight to launder funds a source in the finance ministry said Besides the bonds will be sold by the country’s largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) through its select branches mostly in state capitals and major cities he said In a bid to clean election financing Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday outlined details of the new electoral bonds which are being pitched as an alternative to cash donations made to political parties File image of Arun Jaitley PTI While the donor’s identify will be kept secret the bonds can be encashed by receiving political parties only through a designated bank account "The bonds would be printed with utmost secrecy The details would be as confidential as is kept at the time of printing of currency notes" the source said Besides to ensure single point availability of these bonds the government has mandated only SBI to sell these bonds for 10 days each in months of January April July and October "The bonds would be available at most in 8-10 branches of SBI including those in state capitals" he added Aiming to make political funding more transparent the idea of electoral bonds was first floated by Jaitley in his last Budget As per the contours of the scheme the bonds will not carry the donor’s name even though the purchaser would have to fulfil KYC norms at the bank The source further said that maintaining secrecy of the donor’s name would help the opposition parties as the donors would now have a free hand to donate to them without worrying about his identity being divulged "If the donor’s name was not kept secret then it would have encouraged cash donations which would run contrary to the idea of making the system of political funding transparent" he added The electoral bonds can be given to registered political party which has secured at least 1 percent vote in last election That party will have to give one bank account to the Election Commission and the bonds would have to be encashed within 15 days "As per the norms new political parties cannot encash the bonds These have been done to ensure that no one floats a party to launder money" the source added 17 April happens to be the 20th death anniversary of arguably Odisha’s most famous politician who apart from playing an important role in the central governments led by prime ministers Morarji Desai and VP Singh was the chief minister of the state twice His son Naveen Patnaik the present chief minister is sparing no opportunity to celebrate the occasion at every level —gram panchayats blocks district headquarters and the state capital After all Naveen like never before needs to exploit his father’s rich political legacy to arrest the spreading "Modi-wave" in a state which he has been ruling uninterrupted for the last 17 years Interestingly it is in Naveen’s citadel that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) held its national executive meet on Saturday and Sunday (15-16 April) Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the star attraction of the meet the venue of which specifically chosen to give the message loud and clear that the BJP would spare no opportunity to repeat an "Assam" in Odisha The party is to concentrate on some states which are not its traditional strongholds but offer great prospects as was the case in Assam last year And in this scheme of things Odisha occupies the position of primacy File image of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik PTI After all under the Modi-phenomenon the BJP seems to have developed a healthy base in the villages and certain urban centres of Odisha evident from its bagging about 34 percent of votes in local elections held last month The party is now clearly the most important political party in the eastern state after the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD); the Congress party seems to have gone down irretrievably to the periphery in Odisha politics However it will be unwise on the part of the BJP to treat Naveen Patnaik lightly He could prove to be a formidable opponent Along with Sikkim’s Pawan Chamling and Tripura’s Manik Sarkar Naveen is a chief minister who has won four consecutive elections a national record so far Since 5 March 2000 he has not lost a single election be it at the local (panchayat or municipal) level or at the Assembly level or at the national level for the Parliament In fact with the possible exception of the last local elections (which he all told did not lose if seen in totality) he has emerged stronger with each successive election Naveen has proved his critics wrong many a time He has defied the dictum that a chief minister must know the spoken language of the state In fact it is a great irony that Naveen who cannot speak Odia is the chief minister of India’s first linguistic state; it was created in 1936 precisely on the basis of Odia being the predominant language of the people in contagious areas of the then British Presidencies of Bengal and Madras That Naveen is a nonconventional politician is further evident from the fact that he is hardly accessible; he prefers to keep a low profile and is rarely seen at social gatherings In fact all this is highly surprising given the fact that before he came to the politics in 1996 at the age of 50 he was regarded as one of the leading socialites of Delhi and better known as "Pappu" (his nickname) Naveen is a politician by accident His father had not promoted him in politics When Biju died in 1996 leaders of the then undivided Janata Dal at the Centre persuaded Naveen to take his father’s role by contesting a Lok Sabha by-election from Odisha The dynasty-factor so important in Indian politics these days did play a role in Naveen becoming a politician but I would say that he was a reluctant dynast He was literally coaxed into politics by the then United Front government most of whose important leaders were essentially promoters of political dynasties —Deve Gowda Mulayam Singh Yadav Laloo Prasad Yadav Chandrababu Naidu and Karunanidhi In my considered view more than the dynastic or his father’s legacy Naveen has been helped by two salient features of Odisha politics One is the fact that Odisha has been quintessentially a non-congress state except during the years between 1980 and 90 under late JB Patnaik when the Congress was really strong Secondly unlike in the case of other non-Congress ruling parties in India caste has not played a determining role in Odisha a huge factor that has helped Naveen Patnaik a great deal Broadly speaking the leadership of Odisha politics has invariably been with the Karanas (Kayasthas) Kshatriyas Brahmins and Scheduled Tribes The factor of the OBC —the principal vote-bank of the non-Congress parties in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh is a little different in Odisha as the dominant OBCs —the Khandayats —are economically and socially as good as the Karanas Unlike in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh where the OBCs resented the bigger landholdings of the upper castes (that is how the politicisation of the OBC started) in Odisha the mutual animosities between the upper castes and the OBCs have not been that deep-rooted because of the fact that the sizes of their respective landholdings have been broadly the same Though the three upper castes (the Brahmins Kshatriyas and Karanas) possessed more than the average-sized agricultural land holding the Khandayats also possessed comparable quantities of land Secondly at the time of independence nearly one-fourth of all land holdings in Odisha were less than 05 hectares in size and nearly 877 percent of all holdings were three hectares or less With such small land holdings on average there has been far less potential for political conflict to centre on the issue of agricultural land and along caste lines It is not that some have not tried to play caste politics; former speaker of Lok Sabha Rabi Ray (a socialist but in the Biju Patnaik-led Janata Dal) and Congress leaders Kahnu Lenka and Shrikant Jena (former Union ministers) did try to play with the OBC card but failed In any case their OBC politics was mainly centred on internal party rivalry —Rabi Ray Vs Biju Patnaik; Kahnu Lenka Vs JB Patnaik; and Shrikant Jena Vs Biju Patnaik If one leaves out the upper castes and the OBCs then it is the SCs and STs who between them constitute about 40 percent of the Odisha’s population Congress has traditionally been strong with the SCs but the STs predominantly in the tribal western Odisha have invariably supported the former rulers (belonging to the erstwhile Swatantra party and then the BJP) Most of their leaders including the emerging ones have been co-opted by the major parties in the state —one of them (Giridhar Gomang) is now with the BJP after leaving the Congress the other (Hemanand Biswal) is with the Congress Against this background Naveen Patnaik is in a formidable position Because as far as the upper castes and that means the traditional middle class in concrete terms are concerned his image compared to any of his rivals is much higher Despite his long stint in power Naveen has no scam against his name He is commonly perceived to be non-corruptible though there are rumours of his family in Delhi striking deals with the businessmen and foreign investors The fact that he is a bachelor goes well with the people who think that there is no need for him to make money Besides to strengthen his anti-corruption image Naveen as chief minister has sacked as many as 26 of his cabinet colleagues either on corruption charges or on moral grounds However the biggest problem that the BJP has in Odisha is the lack of an offensive spirit something it did not suffer from while fighting the Congress in Assam Modi or for that matter the top BJP leadership is still confused as to whether to go all out against Naveen in Odisha All told the BJD till 2009 was an important component of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Though at the ground level the BJP activists are reportedly against reviving the alliance with the BJD the national leadership of the BJP has never ruled out such a prospect And now that Presidential election is due and the Modi-regime still needs some support from non-NDA parties to have its candidate to succeed Pranab Mukherjee it is understandable why one did not notice at the executive meet at Bhubaneswar any battle-cry against Naveen As an observer of Indian politics I have argued many a time that contrary to the common perceptions the BJP (or its previous incarnation Jana Sangh) has always been an honest and accommodative partner in the game of alliance politics but this gesture of the party has rarely been reciprocated Despite constituting the largest block in the Janata Party after the 1977 elections it had inadequate representations in Morarji Desai’s cabinet It had an alliance with Bahujan Samaj Party once in Uttar Pradesh but the BSP chief Mayawati stabbed the BJP Until 2001 the BJP was the largest NDA constituent in Bihar but the then Vajpayee-Advani leadership promoted Nitish Kumar of the Janata Dal United (JDU) and made him the chief minister Subsequently it so happened that the Janata Dal (U) the younger brother to the BJP in Bihar became the elder brother; the rest is now history One distinctly remembers that in 1998 —general elections Biju Patnaik was no more in the scene and all over the state people were talking of Vajpayee not Naveen Patnaik And yet the BJP willingly became a junior partner to the newly formed Biju Janata Dal (BJD) by Naveen In my considered opinion this was a big strategic blunder on the part of the BJP; it had a great chance to be Odisha’s premier political party in 1998 itself This is not to suggest that the BJP has missed the bus in Odisha for ever But to catch it next time Modi has to first make his mind clear whether Bhubaneswar’s "Pappu" unlike the "Pappu in Delhi" (that Rahul Gandhi is described in the political circles in a lighter vein) is a friend or foe Kakinada: The East Godavari police Monday arrested a Naxal carrying a reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head from Pichukula Padu junction in Etapaka Mandal bordering Telangana Representative image PTI Police claimed that Madivi Masa alias Mahesh (21) was involved in an attack on CRPF personnel in Burkapal area of Chhattisgarh in which over 24 personnel were killed in April this year The Chhattisgarh government had announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head Vital documents and Maoist literature too were recovered from his possession said police Madivi hails from Chepurugudem village of Narayanapur district of Chhattisgarh but was leading

arrested 14 officers recruited by the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) for their alleged involvement in a cash-for-jobs scam amid indications that another 11 officers will be arrested soon The 14 officers included those from Assam Police Service (APS) Assam Civil Service (ACS) and allied services posted in various districts They were picked up from different locations early on Wednesday the police said Representational image PTI Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal commended the police for the "achievement against corruption" and said none of the officers who had secured jobs through bribery would be spared "Our government has adopted a zero-tolerance policy against corruption and the fight against corruption will continue" he said "We had recovered the fake answer scripts of some candidates from the APSC office last year In June this year we summoned 25 of the officers selected by the APSC for matching their handwriting with the fake answer scripts "The arrests were made after the forensic laboratory matched their handwriting with the fake answer scripts" said Director General of Police Mukesh Sahay "So far we have arrested 14 and 11 more are likely to be arrested soon" The police had last year arrested APSC Chairman Rakesh Kumar Paul and members of the Commission including Samedur Rahman and Basanta Kumar Doley and three other officials of the Commission who allegedly took money for selecting candidates for the state services The breakthrough in the cash-for-jobs scam took place last year after a police team in Dibrugarh led by Additional Superintendent of Police SS Panesar arrested an engineer of the Town and Country Planning Department while accepting a bribe of Rs 10 lakh The BJP-led Assam government came to power last year a bar had been set up inside the
