corridors of power is that Pankaja Munde is furious over the Ahmednagar district administration denying her permission to hold the annual Dussehra rally at the Bhagwangad shrine a tradition started by her father Gopinath Munde in 1993 While the district administration cited law and order measures for the denial of permission Munde’s close aides see it as “an attempt by the chief minister to clip her wings” Pankaja and Namdeoshastri Sanap the mahant at the shrine have been at loggerheads over holding a rally in what is widely perceived as a struggle for supremacy over the Vanjari community Pankaja reportedly feels slighted that she was denied permission despite being a minister Weathering Storms Former chief minister Narayan Rane has an uncanny ability to weather controversies So on Sunday when he announced his own political formation that is expected to extend support to the NDA an intense debate ensued in the political circles over the fate of the inquiries in which his name figures While a couple of allegations against him have been raised after the Devendra Fadnavis government was elected to power there are whispers in the corridors of power that inquiries in these matters would now go cold Left In The Cold Anganwadi workers in the state have been on a strike since September 11 Infants and lactating mothers in tribal and slum settlements are facing the brunt of the strike But apparently netas couldn’t care less Since the strike broke out no minister in the Devendra Fadnavis cabinet has cared to visit the impacted belts for a first-hand account of the gravity of the crisis The same goes for senior bureaucrats overseeing departments responsible for administering the anganwadis This has led to questions being raised over the government’s seriousness in fixing the crisis Past Deadline September 30 the chief minister’s deadline for completion of the probe inquiring into the allegations of graft and irregularities against senior bureaucrat Radheshyam Mopalwar has elapsed But sources confirm that the inquiry headed by former Maharashtra chief secretary Johny Joseph is nowhere near complete Devendra Fadnavis has recently appointed on the inquiry

NewsWritten by Mir Hilal | Updated: October 5 2016 1:01 pm The newspaper has been accused of “publishing content that can incite acts of violence” and “disturb public tranquility” Top News ‘Kashmir Reader’ a small English daily published from Srinagar was asked to stop publication on the evening of Sunday October 2 The government order announcing the ban was dated September 30 We are yet to find out why the police delivered a copy of the order three days later The newspaper has been accused of “publishing content that can incite acts of violence” and “disturb public tranquility” The government information department later issued a statement that said the order had been issued a week after the Kashmir Reader was served a notice to explain its “position on a series of items published disturbing public tranquility and notwithstanding the principles of rules governing the subject (sic)” No such notice was served to us The most interesting bit of information in the information department’s statement is attributed to district magistrate Farooq Ahmed Lone “The decision was taken after a series of reports from various agencies and credible inputs providing sufficient ground for the decision taken” he said Since when did the perusal of a newspaper’s content become the job of unnamable “agencies” What does “credible inputs providing sufficient ground for the decision” mean Every government institution in the thick of the raging uprising especially police army CRPF and the civil administration has its own PR cell Reporters regularly talk to them for information and comments We have not received a single complaint from the information department on any report/article so far What then made the government act on the reports of “various agencies” Any item the government deems a threat “to public tranquility” could be rebutted even before the reporter sits down to write the copy The other side has all the time to explain its position And if for any reason the other side has not been addressed the newspaper is obliged to issue clarifications/corrections and even apologise if needed later This is exactly what we have been doing The ban therefore points to a bigger malaise which is the recklessness of state authorities in times of crises A few days into the raging uprising the government announced a ban on publication of all newspapers for three days on the phone to a group of editors who had met a day after police seized newspapers at printing presses In the wake of international outrage it then denied having enforced a ban and requested newspaper owners to resume publication No one was held responsible for such a perfunctory decision Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti casually remarked at the peak of the uprising: “Had those children gone to buy toffee” She had been told by the security agencies that the protesters had been shot dead when they tried to overrun police stations and army camps a theory that has largely gone unquestioned It became one of the most widely circulated — and condemned — of her statements Did her remark incite violence or the media’s faithful reportage of her comments As many as 90 people have been killed more than 10000 injured about 700 mostly students have been partially or fully blinded About 7000 people have been arrested and many booked under the Public Safety Act including the human rights activist Khurram Parvez The forces have reportedly damaged hundreds of transformers supplying electricity to people in scores of villages and towns (IE September 12 2016) Houses have been ransacked and the elderly beaten up Is this cataclysmic situation the creation of a small newspaper After blaming the uprising on Pakistan militant outfits activists of rival pro-India parties Hurriyat mosques human rights activists the government has now turned to the media On October 4 Kashmir’s largest circulated newspaper Greater Kashmir wrote on its front page : “The ban on Kashmir Reader newspaper was least expected after the state government backed off from its recent attempt to muzzle the local press following the widespread condemnation from across the world But as another similar bid reveals the government is none the wiser for it and in no mood to give up This time though only one paper has been banned it hardly detracts from the troubling larger import of the move” Rather than looking for scapegoats the government needs to rethink its media policy Its massive bureaucracy needs to become more responsive to the media in difficult times At the height of the unrest upto 70 incidents would occur in a single day A small newspaper like ours can cover only a few of these Journalistic ethics demand that we talk to the other side the government for its version of the events Are the officials concerned available to respond the queries of 10 reporters Ask any Kashmiri local journalist and he would frown Has the government reinforced its PR machinery or geared up its existing one to widen its media outreach No The police department usually summarises the day’s incidents in a paragraph A typical police press release after declaring the day by and large peaceful would squeeze a line like this at the end: “57 miscreants have been arrested” Reporters hardly find any official available for an elaboration on such a large number of arrests The media has shortcomings But instead of imposing bans the government can help itself the people and the media by fostering an atmosphere where careless wielding of power does not fetter professionalism The writer
