Manmohan Singh its prime minister of 10 years who had gone conspicuously missing from its campaign this election A 50-second video “Thank you Dr Manmohan Singh” — posted on the party’s official YouTube account — claims and projects his government’s successes after attributing them to his leadership from the jump in installed power capacity to rural roads from the penetration of rural telephony to the Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor The video could mark a burst of post-exit poll wisdom a gracious afterthought Or not After all even this belated homage to Singh has come after Congressmen’s fervent and ungainly attempts to firewall Rahul Gandhi from accountability after Friday have led many to wonder aloud if Singh would return to the public stage after all in the role of scapegoat This last-minute acknowledgement of its prime minister may only be the party’s self-serving attempt to counter that speculation If there was one overriding theme of the UPA regime especially in its second term it was its complicity in the unchecked diminution of its prime minister A measure of prime ministerial diffidence was built into the ruling arrangement that took over in 2004 The mandate was for Sonia Gandhi who then nominated Singh as PM while functioning as the political centre of gravity for the Congress-led UPA But the ways in which the Congress party then contributed to the weakening of the prime ministerial office — by disowning his initiatives as on Sharm el-Sheikh by sidestepping his authority as on retrospective taxation and 2G or by simply spiriting away a chunk of the PM’s prerogative to an extra-constitutional National Advisory Council — have not just scarred Singh’s legacy They have also undermined the institution of the executive and laid the ground for the clamour for a “stronger” more “decisive” leadership at the Centre that has so comprehensively overtaken the UPA in this election The defining image of UPA 2 could be Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s afternoon ambush of his own party’s government and its PM who was away on a foreign visit in the unforgettable press conference in September last year That was when he trashed the government-piloted ordinance on convicted lawmakers as “complete nonsense” and threatened to tear it up and throw it away Whatever the outcome on May 16 the Congress has much to regret and reflect on and by all indications it will have ample time and space to do so It must start with the terrible shrinking of the man who brought such unfailing forbearance to a job he did not seek or get elected to

body meeting — objected to the Solid Waste Management department’s deadline of discontinuing garbage collection from bulk generators from October 2 Following the meeting the group leaders met civic chief Ajoy Mehta and discussed their demands to relax the deadline Mehta has agreed to give an extension on a case-to-case basis During the meeting corporators demanded that the civic body’s circular asking for discontinuing collection of garbage from commercial and residential buildings which produce more than 100 kg of solid waste daily be scrapped The circular said the buildings will have to process waste on the premises Corporators like Congress group leader Ravi Raja and Samajwadi party’s Raees Shaikh said the circular was bad in law and questioned the amount of progress the administration has made in initiating the waste-to-energy projects at Deonar and Mulund dumping grounds Shaikh said the SWM department was deliberately trying to create an environment of panic among people by imposing such a deadline “Neither has there been any public participation nor have the local representatives been consulted before imposing such a deadline We thoroughly oppose the plan and demand that the administration should give a detailed plan on segregation of waste to the corporation” he said Shaikh alleged that the SWM department had manipulated the garbage figures by claiming that it has managed to reduce the city’s daily output of solid waste by 1000 metric tonnes “What is the basis behind such a claim of reducing the city’s waste when no discussion has happened on any forum and neither has any feedback been taken from the corporators who work on the ground” he asked Manoj Kotak the BJP groupleader said: “If the BMC stops collecting garbage from residents’ homes how are they supposed to dispose off their waste” Although the corporators from the BJP and the Congress staged a walkout alleging that mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar was not allowing all corporators to speak the discussion continued Shiv Sena corporator and leader of the house Yashwant Jadhav said: “The matter should have been discussed with us in the standing committee and the administration has insulted us and the mayor by not consulting us” Taking cognisance of the points raised by Jadhav Mahadeshwar adjourned the general body meeting and did not allow the civic administration to respond in the matter After hearing the arguments of the group leaders during their meeting held on Monday Mehta has made certain relaxations to the deadline He has not however agree to do away with the circular “Wherever there is genuine difficulty residents will have to individually apply to the BMC for a maximum extension of three months and implement ways to process waste within that time Extensions will only be given to cases where the reasoning is found to be plausible and verifiable” he said adding that a revised circular will be issued on Tuesday For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian

the killing had to be viewed It appears implausible this pairing of sudden violence and the cool photographic recording of it of atavistic brutality and the technology required to capture the images But it is not new In 1916 Jesse Washington a black man in Waco Texas was accused of killing the wife of a cotton planter and burnt alive by a mob A local professional photographer took pictures of the event which were then sold as postcards One of the crowd sent his parents a postcard bearing the words “This is the barbecue we had last night My picture is to the left with a cross over it your son Joe” It shows a row of spectators at the back and two people in the foreground posing next to the charred stump of the body They have the swagger of hunters standing over a trophy Postcards were only part of the memorabilia floating around after Washington’s death — those willing to pay more could acquire a length of the chain used to hang him and other more macabre remains Lynchings in the American south were regularly photographed and in some cases even simulated through audio-visual media after the event was over It was as if this public act of killing could not be complete without the images and mementos that proliferated afterwards For lynching has never been about violence alone — as Amy Louise Wood observes in her book Lynching and Spectacle “even that violence and those deaths were representational” Around the turn of the 20th century Wood goes on to say the most sensational lynchings took place in fast urbanising areas These were the places where the old social order was most visibly threatened as blacks and whites competed for jobs and emerging urban spaces threw them together in new ways The social and political anxieties of the southern white population gave rise to the spectre of the “black brute rapist” who violated white women and by extension the “purity” of white society Lynchings enacted a triumph over these social fears and reinstated challenged hierarchies But what of the lynching crowd at Dimapur What triumph did the photographs commemorate Nagaland is the result of its own peculiar history and inhabits a very different context; the ethnic tensions of the hill state may not be comparable to the racial hatred of southern America or the hierarchies it produced But curious resonances surfaced in the lynching at Dimapur To begin with the city has its own spectres The most audible strain of Naga identity at least has long defined itself in terms of ethnic purity which must be protected against “outsiders” Over time anxieties about outsiders have coalesced around the figure of the “illegal Bangladeshi immigrant” a phrase often contracted to the clipped impersonal acronym “IBI” Local lore frequently casts him as a predatory creature stealthily making inroads in Naga society by taking over jobs and land marrying local women From the 1980s there had been reports of how marriages between Naga women and IBIs had given rise to a new population of “Sumias” Local newspapers continue to raise alarm about the “ballooning population of immigrants” being a “big threat to the survival of the local populace” On Gandhi Jayanti in 2012 the Naga Council Dimapur introduced a pledge to “socially and economically boycott” IBIs The stakes were high no less than the “erosion” of Naga identity by a “tidal wave of alien culture” Many fears seem to converge in the person of the IBI — hybridity economic dispossession and eventually cultural extinction In Syed Sharif Khan a Bengali-speaking Muslim who had married a local woman and was accused of raping a Naga girl Dimapur found the perfect focus for them Did the crowd that bore down on him believe they were expelling these fears If the spectators at Waco joked about being at a “barbecue” this lynching had the fury of an exorcism The procession that started at the central jail was bound for the clock tower a city landmark where the accused would be mounted on the rails This was to be no ordinary killing; the images it left behind were important There would also have to be proof that this ritual expulsion had taken place To the cell phone wielders that day the photographs may tell that story But to horrified viewers who were not part of the crowd certain social pathologies were played out and taken to their tragic conclusion in the Dimapur lynching The photographs tell that story too [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Dilip Bobb | Updated: October 5 2014 12:18 am Secretary to the President Omita Paul participates in a cleanliness drive after the launch of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti in New Delhi (Source: PTI) Related News It’s the start of a new broomance The Prime Minister’s Swachh Bharat Mission aims to get people to rediscover their roots and leaves and other discarded matter so they can make a clean break with the past With ministers and bureaucrats and those who wield clout now wielding a broom we are in for some sweeping changes Yet there is literally a mountain to climb and there clearly need to be specific targets Here are some obvious targets The spitter: That slimiest of species the spitter only breeds in the subcontinent and can be identified by the sound ‘swachh’ which is heard when spit hits the road wall or nearest object It seems to be connected to an affliction of the salivary glands since Indians spit with alarming frequency and velocity with no regard for the mess they are leaving behind or any disease they may be spreading much to the disgust of non-spitters who are clearly a minority community and unprotected against ugly spats Spitters need to be identified and soon;
