the late BJP stalwart Pramod Mahajan in Marathwada region later spent his formative years as a student in Pune where he also formed an association with newly-elected Union Minister Prakash JavadekarPrime Minister Narendra Modi paying his last respect to the mortal remains of Union Minister Gopinath Munde at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi on Tuesday Munde died on Tuesday morning in a

candidate Mahadeo Jankar in the last election said despite political differences she had very good relations with him on personal and family level PTI Sadad Syria: As military vehicles roll by Syrian boys and girls gingerly decorate a large Christmas tree in the Christian town of Sadad at the front lines with the Islamic State jihadist group Most residents of the ancient Syriac Orthodox-majority town in central Syria have fled and those remaining are reluctant to celebrate the holidays as fierce battles with Islamic State rage nearby With the steady approach of Islamic State Youssef a retired 65-year-old man living alone in Sadad sent his family away to a safer village "I haven’t put up a Christmas tree in my house for the past four years because the situation does not allow us to and because I can’t find a place for joy in my home" he says Wearing a long brown coat in the chilly Syrian winter he says sadly "Dozens of people have died in this village; how could I put up decorations or hand out holiday sweets" Sadad’s historic churches have been caught in the crossfire before with regime and rebel forces battling for control of the town two years ago Representational image AFP Although government forces eventually secured the town its residents are under attack again this winter – this time from Islamic State "What is special about Christmas this year is the imminent threat that Sadad is facing and the bitter memories that have come back to us" says town mayor Sleiman Khalil "Now we’re afraid it will happen again with fighters from Daesh" he said referring to Islamic State by its Arabic acronym Army vehicles Christmas trees Despite backing by the Russian military government forces have struggled to keep Islamic State — which controls swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq — at bay in the central province of Homs On 10 December regime armed forces lost control of Maheen a village 18 kilometres (11 miles) from Sadad to Islamic State after holding it for only a few weeks Only days before Christmas decorations in Sadad are sparse Instead the town’s streets are teeming with military vehicles and fighters who now outnumber civilian residents Of the town’s nine churches — some of them ancient heritage sites — just three are still operational In the church of Tiwadoros some 15 kilometres (10 miles) from the front lines with Islamic State families gather for a modest service Women elderly couples and a handful of young men and fighters taking a break from the clashes fill about two-thirds of the wooden seats inside A massive collage of some 60 pictures is plastered across one of the walls with the title "The Martyrs of Sadad" Most of those pictured don civilian clothes Six pictures feature young men in military gear "I will defy Daesh until the last moment How could I leave the village while my son defends it and me on the front lines" says Shams Abboud 62 The sermon that day includes a special prayer in the Syriac language for "our youth who at this time of year used to be busy decorating a big tree in the middle of the village but who are now busy protecting our front lines" says priest Mtanyos Melhem Stouf Hezbollah is ‘Santa’s gift’ Outside about 10 young Sadad residents put the finishing touches to the large metal tree in the town’s Mar Mikhayel garden and plan holiday activities for the remaining children in the town Omar al-Hay 31 heads the local scouts group As he sets up a large nativity scene Hay says the recent atmosphere of fear in the town had inspired him "to plant a small smile on the faces of the children so we can make them forget the sounds of bullets and artillery" Sadad’s schools have been transformed into shelters for pro-regime militia including more than 700 Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah fighters who have reinforced government soldiers "All I want is for this Christmas to pass in peace" says Mtanyos Mawas an elderly man who decided against fleeing Sadad when he heard the army was dispatching reinforcements Sadad mayor Khalil said more pro-regime fighters are staying in homes "Despite our religious differences with Hezbollah we’re confronting a single enemy together and that is Daesh" he says "Having Hezbollah on the ground has brought safety and peace of mind to the residents and the fighters alike" he adds warmly Kifah Abboud a 48-year-old teacher says "When Daesh came closer the holidays felt further away And when Hezbollah came life returned" "Hezbollah fighters are Santa Claus’s gifts to Sadad" AFP 2017 12:54 pm It will be her sixth quarter-final at the majors and second in

Smart tactics work better than low bloodymindedness. Especially after the death of Gopinath Munde the BJP does not even have a CM candidate to project So it is Uddhav by default anyway – if the alliance wins Here are 10 reasons why the BJP would be making a serious mistake in damaging the relationship with the Sena First the alliance is on the brink of a clear victory in Maharashtra after 15 years in fruitless opposition Both parties will benefit from the anti-incumbency wind behind them Do they want to ruin what is a sure thing for uncertain gains from going separate Hang together or hang separately PTI Second the BJP-Sena alliance (like the BJP-Akali deal in Punjab) is actually closer to a meeting of ideological minds than probably any other alliance driven by pure caste of religion arithmetic Every other alliance that the BJP can or will enter is essentially one of convenience Third the BJP does not have the kind of ground-level organisation that the Sena has in many areas of Maharashtra Even though it is true that in May the Modi wave carried them to an easy and sweeping victory in regional elections the logic of a national election seldom holds – as the BJP found to its cost in Uttarakhand Bihar Uttar Pradesh Karnataka and even its own bastions in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh Fourth the logic of an alliance is mutual support in areas of the other party’s weakness The Sena-BJP alliance was built on this principle The BJP got a greater share of Lok Sabha seats while the Sena got a larger share of assembly seats There may be a need to give more seats to the BJP in the assembly but this is a matter of hard negotiation not excessive brinkmanship Fifth the Sena may need the BJP’s muscle in Maharashtra but the BJP needs the Sena’s muscle in parliament even more If Narendra Modi has to push through difficult legislation his 281 MPs (Gopinath Munde having died) can only assure him the passage of bills in the Lok Sabha In the Rajya Sabha and especially if a joint session of parliament has to be called the BJP needs every Sena MP on its side The Sena has 18 solid MPs Sixth the loss of a close ally of 25 years can have snowballing effects on other allies The Akalis will wonder if they are next Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Pradesh would be wondering what the BJP’s game will be in his state Ram Vilas Paswan and smaller allies may also be chafing at the bit especially given Modi’s strong grip over their ministries Not only that if the BJP is seen to be losing support of even its close allies what is the chance that potential fair-weather partners like Jayalalithaa’s AIADMK or Naveen Patnaik’s BJD will soon become more anti-BJP Worse a break with the Sena could also ultimately make factions inside the BJP restive The BJP thus has more to lose than just an ally in a state Seventh the BJP is also underestimating the importance of local feelings Modi as a Gujarati can easily be projected by a wounded Shiv Sena as an outsider by stoking anti-Gujarati sentiment in Maharashtra Nobody will be able to stop that if the alliance breaks This is the last thing a national leader like Modi needs Eighth Uddhav Thackeray is actually less of a rabble-rouser than either his late father Bal Thackeray or his cousin Raj Thackeray of the MNS By fighting with Uddhav the BJP actually will end up having to choose some other partner for the state when the Sena under Uddhav is actually the most moderate among the Marathi parties Ninth what happens in Maharashtra can impact even UP and Bihar A BJP alliance with Raj Thackeray for example can alienate Biharis given the latter’s strong statements against UP and Bihar migrants in Maharashtra The BJP wants to win big in Bihar and UP in 2015 and 2017 Of course it is possible for the BJP to ally with parties like the NCP but this would involve tying up with the likes of Sharad Pawar – who has not distinguished himself on probity Tenth the BJP has to evaluate the possibility of big short-term losses against doubtful long-term gains Breaking with the Sena means a possible loss in Maharashtra and kissing goodbye to what Modi wants to accomplish at the centre in his first term using a large NDA majority It is only when the BJP is sure that it wants to sacrifice the short-term for the long-term should it even think of breaking with Sena It is not clear the party brass especially the local leadership has thought things through what it gains and loses from taking on the Sena just before an election The upshot: the BJP has acted foolishly with the Sena It should kiss and make up without much ado even while haggling for a few more seats Wisdom lies in knowing how much you can stretch a relationship without damaging it Patna: Former Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday declined to accept a posse of personal staff allotted to him by the state government a facility not available to other former Chief Ministers Bihar CM Nitish Kumar Reuters "I will accept only things to which I am entitled to as a former Chief Minister and nothing beyond that" Kumar said "I came to know from newspapers today about the allotment only for me and excluding other ex-CMs. mujhe yah suvidha nahi chahiye (I do not need the facilities)" he said "I thank Jitan Ram Manjhi cabinet for showing concern for me but I do not need these facilities not permitted in rule for former chief ministers" Nitish Kumar told PTI The Manjhi cabinet had on Tuesday approved a proposal of the Cabinet Secretariat providing necessary personal staff to the former Chief Minister for five years The personal staff which he could avail of was the services of two additional secretaries as many private secretaries two lower division clerks and four peons This facility was alloted only to Kumar excluding all other former Chief Ministers Kumar who was the Chief Minister of the state for past eight years demitted office on May 18 last owning moral responsibility for the defeat of JD(U) in Lok Sabha poll in Bihar His party could manage only two seats out of 40 in the state as against 20 in 2009 After being authorised by the JD(U) Legislature party Kumar nominated senior minister Jitan Ram Manjhi to succeed him as the Chief Minister The day Manjhi took oath on May 20 Kumar shunned all facilities He has decided to move out of One Anne Marg residence of the chief minister and move into 7 Circular road residence alloted to him in the capacity of an ex-CM PTI New Delhi: Congress on Sunday slammed Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed for his statement that Pakistan and militant groups had made the atmosphere conducive for elections in the state and said BJP should explain the position of its ally Congress MP Ghulam Nabi Azad Reuters "This is totally untrue that Pakistan or militant groups made the atmosphere conducive How can the new government forget killing of nearly 6 to 8 sarpanches and suicide attack at an army camp in Uri in which army officers lost their lives "In fact Pakistan and militant groups tried their best to destabilise the democratic process in the state" Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad told PTI He said it was the people of J-K who had strengthened the roots of democracy in the state and the newly cobbled together alliance should refrain from extending credit in the wrong direction "First the credit goes to the people of J-K; second to our forces who maintained a tight vigil on the border day and night; third to Election Commission and above all to Indian democracy" he said Asked how he would describe Sayeed’s statement Azad said "I don’t have to explain anything It is for the BJP to explain this" Earlier during a press conference Sayeed had said "I want to say this on record and I have told this to Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) that we must credit the Hurriyat and the militant outfits for conduct of Assembly elections in the state" He also said "People from across the border allowed conducive atmosphere during the elections My humble submission is that peaceful elections were not possible if they had done something "You know how small action was needed to disturb the elections They allowed the democratic process to go ahead This gives us hope" PTI For five months the Congress lived up to the scriptural truth that there is none so deaf as those who will not hear and none so blind as those who will not see No matter how many times workers junior leaders or party veterans crossed the red line to prod the High Command to take some corrective measures following the serial debacles Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice chief Rahul Gandhi remained immune and immobile to their desperate pleas But now they are finally beginning to how some signs of stirring into action And this is because Prime Minister Narendra Modi made it clear that he was not content with merely defeating and dislodging the Congress electorally but also wanted to strip the 129-year-old party of all its icons ideologues props and programmes—ranging from Mahatma Gandhi to Jawaharlal Nehru and Nirmal Bharat to inclusive growth—and toss it into the dustbin of history The Congress has belatedly woken up to this catastrophe and like a mauled boxer in the ring is struggling to get on its feet to put up some sort of a fight On Thursday Congress leaders and workers gathered at Talkatora Stadium in the poll-bound capital of Delhi to begin their long haul to redemption–or oblivion as some would believe—ahead of the two-day international conference on 17-18 November to highlight Nehru’s vision of India and philosophy and counter Modi’s attempt to whisk him and all its other icons away from it PTI Sonia and Rahul began the day by blasting Modi to put some life back into their despondent workers, The BJP acted foolishly in angering the Sena to the point where the damage to the relationship can be long-lasting despite a possible last-minute patch-up.
