March 2015 and May 2016.Shanti Process, For all the latest World News, who was with him, industrial corridors etc. needs to be made available as soon as possible The trouble here is with the phrase “social infrastructure” which wasn’t there in the original 2013 Act and has been inserted only in the ordinance This phrase needs to be clearly defined to tell the people that it hasn’t been introduced to provide a back-door entry for corporates Further the 2013 Act had clearly stated that “no irrigated multi-cropped land shall be acquired under this Act” Such land could only be acquired “subject to the condition” that it was “being done under exceptional circumstances as a demonstrable last resort”The 2014 ordinance does away with this This is another thing that the BJP needs to explain to the people of this country In a country where half of the land area is arable it is very difficult to get hold of non-agricultural land close to the cities most of the time Further there is no shortage of land for agriculture in India even if some of it goes towards urbanization and industrialization (As I explain in this piece) Further the general impression that has been communicated about the 2013 Act (as well as the 2014 ordinance given that there has been no change on this front) is that those affected will be paid a compensation by the appropriate government of four times the market value of the land that is being acquired This is not actually true This was first done by the Congress when it was in power And is now being done by the BJP over the social media The 2013 law(as well as the 2014 ordinance) is slightly more complicated than that For rural areas the minimum compensation promised is anywhere between two to four times the market value of land along with the value of the assets on that land For urban areas the minimum compensation promised is two times the market value of land along with the value of the assets on that land This is to be determined by state governments Hence state governments are in a position to pay only twice the market value of the land that is being acquired in rural areas In fact this has already happened As a report on NDTVcom points out: “at least two BJP led states – Haryana and Madhya Pradesh – have fixed as compensation of two times the market value of the land for both rural and urban areas” But there are other states which are paying more Nevertheless this is an anomaly that needs to be set right If land is being acquired for a certain purpose the government should be following a similar ratio throughout the country The BJP is on a strong wicket in this case It needs to bat accordingly It needs to tell the people of this country that it was the Congress party which forcefully took over their land over the years It also needs to tell the people that more than a million Indians are entering the workforce every year Jobs need to be created for them—and how will jobs be created without the creation of more physical infrastructure and new industry In fact Arun Jaitley made a fantastic speech in the Rajya Sabha yesterday defending the land acquisition ordinance “Don’t create an environment where infrastructure and industry become bad words” he said More such performances are required for the BJP (Vivek Kaul is the author of the Easy Money trilogy He tweets @kaul_vivek) A vote is meant to be a secret ballot but here is an honest confession: last Thursday as I entered the polling booth I was confronted with a strange sense of confusion The electronic voting machine seemed to stare at me with unusual ferocity and my finger grew weak At the bottom of the list of candidates was in screaming capital letters the word ‘NOTA’ Should I be voting for none of the above I asked myself with ever-increasing angst I vote in the New Delhi constituency one of the most prized battlegrounds in the country The top three candidates here were the sitting MP of the Congress Ajay Maken the BJP’s Meenakshi Lekhi and the Aam Admi Party’s Ashish Khetan You could argue that I was spoilt for choice and yet my finger was nervously twitching towards the NOTA button I know Mr Maken quite well Almost two decades ago we had travelled to Australia together as part of a youth delegation I have found him amiable communicative and in political terms a ‘doer’ He is a relatively accessible MP even making an annual trip to the walking club in our park to inquire into our grievances You require clarity of mind inside the polling booth: PTI As sports minister he had shown the capacity to revive a dormant ministry with his unbridled enthusiasm As the media in charge he had been less effective best remembered perhaps for the public snub he received from Rahul Gandhi with his ‘nonsense’remark on the government’s ordinance on convicted MPs But for his high energy levels alone he still seemed to deserve another term And yet I hesitated After all the party which Mr Maken represented had provided the country with a weak and unfocused leadership for the last five years The Congress-led UPA had presided over a series of scams a slowing economy rising inflation The last five years had been a tale of missed opportunities and a litany of self goals Would pressing the button in support of Mr Maken amount to an endorsement of five years of non-performance Would it mean a vote of confidence in the untested and uninspiring leadership of Rahul Gandhi Surely the Congress deserved to spend time in the oppositionThe pause button was pressed in the mind And so I looked at the next candidate on the machine I do not know Ms Lekhi Actually I do know her but only from the confines of a television studio She is a feisty BJP spokesperson a trifle too loud and overbearing at times but then noise is the new mantra of news for some She often has to defend the indefensible and while I might disagree with her views at times I have had a lurking admiration for party spokespersons who move from one studio to another with such aplomb on a daily basis We need more women in parliament and Ms Lekhi might atleast be a little more combative than those who simply dress up smile and go home But again I hesitated The party which Ms Lekhi represented had an ideological worldview which for all the attempted makeover still seemed trapped in past animosities The mask had almost slipped only a few days earlier when the BJP’s senior leader Amit Shah had been caught on tape calling for “revenge” through the ballot box Did I really want to vote for a party which at its core saw benefit in communal polarisation Did I wish to give a stamp of approval to Mr Narendra Modi a leader with administrative skills but also with a troubling authoritarian streak someone who had been economical with the truth about his and his parivar’s role in the riots of 2002 I was still in pause mode At which point I turned to the next name Ashish Khetan of AAP As a fellow-journalist I had some natural affinity for Khetan He had even worked with us briefly at CNN IBN He was a bit of a sting master a form of journalism that I can never entirely approve of and one which had once bitten me badly But while there was a cowboy streak to his journalism I admired his raw courage to take on the powerful at a time when collusive media is a worrying trend If he could bring that attitude to parliament maybe he could shake a few entrenched interests But for the third time I remained ambivalent Was AAP really a solution to the larger governance crisis facing the country Would a Lokpal-centric campaign be enough to end the cancer of corruption in the country Did the 49 day record of Arvind Kejriwal as Delhi chief minister suggest that some people are better off as streetfighters than being in power And would a vote for AAP only contribute to instability and chaos since the party had little chance on the national stage Too many questions no clear answers I paused a final time There were of course other names on the voting machine too people I had never heard of independent candidates with similar sounding names and symbols who had perhaps only been put up to confuse the voter I didn’t want to waste my vote but neither did I have the clarity of mind that is sometimes necessary when you have ink on the finger With every passing moment the NOTA button was looking larger than life Finally I did make a choice A NOTA vote was in the final analysis a protest vote that would eventually have little bearing on the final verdict Put simply a NOTA vote was a cop out My hand moved away and I did vote for one of the recognised candidates I won’t tell you who and I don’t even know if the person will win As I came out of the polling booth though I did feel reassuringly empowered At least on voting day the aam admi can feel equal to a khaas admi (The writer is eitor in chief IBN 18 network Mail: [email protected]) Mumbai: The committee set up to probe the alleged corruption in the Maharashtra
