::Source: The Hindu::

GUWAHATI, APRIL 28, 2009: Apex bodies of six tribes of southern Assam’s North Cachar Hills district have issued a joint appeal to the militant Dima Halam Daogah (Jewel Gorlossa faction) to shun violence and stop attacking local trains. They urged the government and the outfit to sit for peace talks.

The Dimasa, Hmar, Jeme Naga, Kuki, Biate and Hrangkhol tribes expressed concern over the suspension of train servicesbetween Lumding and Badarpur in the wake of a series of attacks by DHD (Jewel) militants.

The outfit attacked six trains in the past fortnight. Three security personnel and a railway staffer were killed and 17 passengers injured in the incidents.

Karnataka sees 55-60 percent polling in first phase

BANGALORE, APRIL 24 (IANS): Karnataka recorded 50 to 55 percent voting in 17 of the 28 Lok Sabha constituencies on Thursday with Bangalore registering around 50 percent turnout, election officials said.

"The overall percentage would be around 50 percent and in Bangalore (with three constituencies) it may touch 50 percent," an official of the state election office said.

The voting in all the three Bangalore constituencies - South, Central and North - was moderate despite a widespread campaign by NGOs and candidates themselves to motivate the nearly six million electorate to troop to the polling booths.

The prestigious Bangalore South constituency recorded around 50 percent voting. It has Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) general secretary and former central minister H.N. Ananth Kumar seeking re-election for the fifth time, facing Congress young turk Krishna Byre Gowda and no-frills aviation pioneer Capt. G.R. Gopinath.

Bangalore North, from where former railways minister C.K. Jaffer Sharief (Congress) is contesting, was in the third position in Bangalore with around 45 percent polling.

Bangalore Central, from where former 'supercop' H.T. Sangliana is contesting on the Congress ticket after crossing over from BJP, was slightly better with around 48 percent.

Highest voting of over 60 percent was recorded in Chikkodi in north Karnataka and the lowest of around 40 percent from Raichur, also in north Karnataka.

The polling was peaceful though at several places people complained of names missing from the voter list though they had election photo identity cards.

Around 20.6 million people were eligible to vote in the 17 constituencies.

Polling, which began on a dull note in Bangalore, did not pick up even though weather was pleasant following showers.

Voting took place in around 29,000 polling booths in the 17 constituencies.

Of the 28 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, the remaining 11 will go to polls in the third phase April 30.

Kumaraswamy, Sangliana are punters’ darlings

BANGALORE, APRIL 23, 2009: Betting on the poll outcome in constituencies in and around Bangalore is on in fullswing.

The punters are very keen on the result of the constituencies such as Bangalore South, Bangalore Central, Bangalore North and Bangalore Rural where the fight between Ananthkumar and Krishna Byregowda, HT Sangliana and PC Mohan, Jaffer Sharief and DB Chandregowda, and HD Kumaraswamy and Tejaswini Gowda are contesting.

In Bangalore constituencies, there is a straight fight between the Congress and BJP whereas in Bangalore Rural a triangular contest is on between the JDS, Congress and BJP. Bangalore South which is witnessing a close contest between fourtime MP H N Ananthkumar of the BJP and first-timer Krishna Byregowda of the Congress is attracting the attention of punters the most.

Though it appears very difficult to predict the winner in Bangalore South, punters here are pinning their hopes on Krishna. They feel that Krishna’s image as a foreign-educated and soft-spoken person would definitely appeal to the young and upper-middle class voters who are in majority in the constituency. But Ananthkumar is also not far behind.

There are almost an equal number of people betting on him. “You can’t dismiss Ananthkumar so easily,” says a bookie, under the condition of anonymity.Predictably, bookies have no hope in Captain Gopinath who is in the fray as an independent candidate from this constituency.

At the most he can fetch some votes from the corporate world, they say.

Kumaraswamy is the darling of punters in Bangalore Rural while Sangliana in the forefront in Bangalore Central. In Bangalore North, Sharief, according to bookies, has an edge over BJP’s Chandregowda as Muslim voters are sympathetic to him. In 2004, Sharief had to face humiliation due to a split in Muslim votes. The punters are foreseeing a win for Sharief this time as they think his son’s death could gain him sympathy votes.

WHO ARE THE PUNTERS?

Most of the bookies in Bangalore are mainly rowdy sheeters, small-time politicians, merchants and realestate agents. They take bets during election, cricket series and make some money and vanish. On Wednesday the eve of the elections, the bookies were more busy with bettings in Chamarajpet, Gandhinagar, K R Market, Avenue Road, Chikpet, Yeshwanthapura, sources said. In recent years, the betting has bloomed into a multi-crore industry. Now betting is a common phenomenon in clubs, resorts
, bars and amusement centres where rowdies, political workers and businessmen usually assemble.

Betting starts from Rs 100 to Rs 1 crore, one of the bookies in Chamrajpet said. But the Election Commission’s strict orders has forced to bookies to keep it low-profile and secretive. The police are taking stringent action and are kept an eye on many matka runners and rowdies and have issued instructions not to allow betting in clubs and other public places.

Thousands call to stop 'disastrous' Tipaimukh project

APRIL 23, 2009: Several thousand people yesterday joined a programme on the bank of Surma River in Sylhet city protesting the much talked Tipaimukh dam project on the upstream of Barak River in Indian state of Manipur.

The project will create a disastrous situation in 12 districts in the north-east region of Bangladesh and areas in Indian states of Assam and Manipur, speakers said at the programme organised by Angikar Bangladesh.

Calling upon the democratic and patriotic forces to raise voice against the looming crisis, they said there should be adequate awareness among our citizens about the Tipaimukh project.

Meanwhile there have been strong protests in three north-eastern states of India -- Manipur, Assam and Mizoram -- against the mega project that would threaten the existence of at least 40,000 aboriginals people and cause immense harm to ecology and environment in a large area.

Shahjalal University Teacher Dr Nazia Chowdhury, Sujon Sylhet chapter General Secretary Faruque Mahmud Chowdhury, Bapa Sylhet chapter Secretary Abdul Karim Kim, Sylhet district Bar Association Vice-President Kishore Kumar Kar spoke at the rally.

“Implementation of the said project, mainly aimed at producing electricity, would cause a disastrous situation for the Meghna basin, especially the greater Sylhet region, during the dry season due to large-scale withdrawal of water of the Barak River in the upper stream. Also there are apprehensions of recurrent flooding during the monsoon due to possible release of water,” a senior official in the Bangladesh Water Development Board said.

The Indian government is going ahead with the project even ignoring protests in Manipur state, he said, adding that it will be another Farakka for Bangladesh. The Barak River bifurcates as Surma and Kushiyara while entering into Bangladesh territory.

People of greater Sylhet region started protesting the project since the news of approval of the project was published a few years ago.

However, the Indian officials claimed that the hydro-electric project in their territory will not cause any harm for the Sylhet region.

Former Karnataka ’super cop’ reaches out to voters in style

BANGALORE, APRIL 21,2009: Congress candidate H.T. Sangliana, a former “super cop” of Karnataka, says electioneering in the prestigious Bangalore Central parliamentary constituency is like a dream unfolding as the April 23 polling day nears.

Sangliana was elected to the 14th Lok Sabha on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ticket from the adjacent Bangalore North constituency after defeating Congress veteran and former Union minister C.K. Jaffer Sharief.

This time, after switching parties, the 66-year-old former city police commissioner is contesting from Bangalore Central, which includes some of the areas of his previous constituency post-delimitation. He has been on the move over the last fortnight to reach out to as many of the 1.9 million voters as possible.

“It’s been a dream life. Over the last two weeks, I’ve lost count of the people I met while canvassing door-to-door and campaigning in several localities across the eight assembly segments of this huge constituency,” Sangliana told IANS while on the campaign trail in Gandhinagar.

Though Sangliana’s nomination from the much-sought-after constituency was late in coming, he lost no time in plunging headlong into hectic campaigning that begins early in the day and drags on till midnight.

Typically, he gets cracking at 7 a.m. for the campaign grind after a quick shower and breakfast in his modest sixth floor flat at the National Games Village in upscale Koramangala suburb.

By the time Sangliana sets out in a Honda CRV, with six gun-toting commandos providing him Z plus security cover in an escort jeep, he is swarmed by hordes of party cadres and local leaders to chalk out the day’s campaign route and the schedule for meetings in designated localities.

“I am 100 percent confident of winning. I have felt the pulse of the people as they greet and exchange views with me. The voters are educated and well-informed. They know I am a performer,” he said.

Unlike other candidates in the city, family members do not accompany Sangliana for electioneering.

While his wife Rovi keeps busy with household chores, three of their four daughters - Elizabeth, Sarah and Rebecca - are settled in Agartala, Mumbai and Boston.

Rachael, who lives separately in Bangalore, is the one who helps him in campaigning.

“All my daughters call me every day to enquire about my campaign and give me valuable suggestions,” beams Sangliana, sporting sunglasses and looking flamboyant in his usual safari suit.

As he enters Gandhinagar, a densely populated residential-cum-commercial area, shouts of “Sangliana zindabad” rent the air. Hordes of party workers and supporters converge at a local temple to welcome him with a burst of crackers, beating of drums, sloganeering and strings of garlands.

After praying at the temple, a heavily garlanded Sangliana steps out and climbs a white open van with Gandhinagar Congress legislator Dinesh Gundu Rao for a quick round of the locality.

With a ban on the use of election paraphernalia and loud speakers for campaigning, Sangliana depends on his popularity in the constituency to draw people’s attention and appeals for their votes with a broad smile, waving hands and delivering a short address on what he would do for them if elected.

Introducing him to a small gathering at a street corner, one of his supporters makes an impromptu speech using a mike and shouts “vote for Sangliana, vote for Sonia and vote for Congress to bring about a change in society”.

“Sangliana will definitely win. He is known for his good work both as a policeman and as a parliamentarian. I will vote for him,” said septuagenarian Mahesh Babu, a retired official, who stepped out of his house to greet the Congress leader.

“As a police officer he was a hero and did a commendable job. He is equally good as a politician now. He should win,” said B. Mandakini, 55.

Asked if his “super cop” image would help him garner votes, Sangaliana said he did not become overnight what people think of him.

“People call me a super cop because I introduced several measures for their benefit as a policeman. I was tough with criminals. I have no problem if people identify me as a super cop as long as I get their love and trust,” he said.

Sangliana is locked in a triangular contest with P.C. Mohan of the BJP and B.Z. Zameer Ahmed Khan of the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S).

“If elected, I will improve electricity and water supply, repair roads and the drainage system. I will prevent moral policing,” Sangliana claimed, drawing a round of applause from his audience.

“I have always believed in good work to be part of public life. I want to spend the rest of my life working for the people,” he asserted.

After a few rounds of campaigning on a hot day, Sangliana breaks for a quick lunch and sets out for another gruelling round of campaigning.
