UP is like the Wild Wild West. If 80% of Indian IAS, IPS are corrupt, UP position is 99%. There is an incredible nexus between politicians, bureaucrats, and criminals. Nepal being next door, criminals routinely slip in and out of the country. Police could not even think about carrying out operations in Muslim majority areas. Every religion and caste had sypathies with criminals from that group, because policing was so ineffective even in small personal conflicts (like between neighbours, or if boys from one community teased a girl from another) not the police, but your religion/caste's criminals stepped in to "resolve" the conflict. Ordinary businessmen (like kirana, mobile shop, dvd/music seller) needed protection. Big businessmen were always in danger or kidnapping-for-ransom, and had to pay protection to all political parties. And even then they could be targets of extortion murders. I could keep going with different types of crimes in UP that are unthinkable in other states. You remember the fiery speeches that Yogi gets calumniated for? The ones in which he says "you kill/rape one of ours, we will kill/rape 10 of yours"? There was a long backstory to them. Under SP, given the above circumstances, members of the minority community had committed a series of violent rapes in which some Hindu girls had even died. But FIRs were not registered for any of them and criminals were walking free, some bullying family of their victim to not raise the matter officially. Fed up, these families and communities reached out to Yogi. Though Yogi was not from their district, and he had no official power, he went to those areas to give personal assurance and protection of his vigilante groups to affected families. Here I am not justifying Yogi (I'll do that elsewhere). Here I am only showing you how things worked in UP. That the fundamental protection of police, the fundamental purpose of Law and Order apparatus, was absent in UP. That you need brawn on your side to not get brutalized. It's up to you whether you turn to a religious gang, a caste gang, or simply a paid gang. But if you need protection for being father of a pretty daughter, owner of a business, having property (wealth or land), or need any official work done, the police is not there for you, gangs or vigilante groups are your only choice.

RTI reveals Aam Aadmi Party's ad expenditure four times that of Congress government

RTI reveals Aam Aadmi Party’s ad expenditure four times that of Congress government - SHARE TWEET SHARE EMAIL For a party which came to power on plank of non corruption and self proclaimed assertion of being a ‘common man’, Aam Aadmi Party seems far from common. As per reports, and RTI filed by IANS, the #AAP Government has spent an average of Rs. 70.5 crore annually in past 3 years on advertisements, four times more than previous Congress Government. This includes expenditure on print, electronic and outdoor advertising. As per Hindustan Times report, in the first year of coming into power, Kejriwal Government spent Rs. 59.9 crore on advertisements. In the following year, the expenditure was Rs. 66.3 crore, which went up to Rs. 85.3 crore this year, averaging at Rs. 70.5 crore. Against this, the previous Congress Government spent Rs. 17.4 crore on an average in the last five years of its rule from 2008-13. The expenditure includes, among others, advertisements with photos of the chief minister and other ministers in newspapers and hoardings, commercial spots on TV and radio, and tender notices published in newspapers. Here, it should be noted that Delhi Government has given ads applauding Delhi Government work in publications in other parts of the country, like Tamil Nadu, Odisha and Gujarat. These states are so geographically apart that this appeared like a futile exercise in wasting public fund to sing their own praises. In September 2016, the Central Government came down heavily on AAP for spending extravagantly, in violation of Supreme Court guidelines, asking AAP government to reimburse the ad expenditure back to the exchequer. Last year, in April, too, Kejriwal was asked to reimburse Rs. 97 crore his party spent on promotional advertisements. #aaptard

FATAH: Is Canada home to anti-India Sikh extremists?

FATAH: Is Canada home to anti-India Sikh extremists? Are there such anti-India Sikhs in the federal cabinet and the Liberal Party and its Ontario wing? Mainstream Canadians outside the circus of identity politics could care less about the wholesale buying and selling at ethnic vote banks, but it’s time they should. India is no longer that far-away country of 1985 when Air India 182 was blown out of the sky by Sikh extremists, killing 268 Canadian citizens among the 325 murdered over Ireland. Today’s India is not just a beacon of democracy in a sea of tyrants that govern much of Asia and Africa, but its economy is booming, as is the trade between our two countries. Fears expressed by New Delhi can no longer be ignored. If they are, it will be our loss in Canada. It has been reported that the current debate about Canada hosting Sikh extremists erupted when the popular Indian weekly, Outlook — in its Feb.12 edition — ran a cover story, featuring a photo of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, wearing traditional orange Sikh handkerchief on his head. The headline on the cover read, “Khalistan-II: Made in Canada.” Sources in India tell me the Outlook edition story came only after the government of India and Indo-Canadians noticed a sudden spike in anti-India extremist activities at Sikh temples across Canada. In one such step, Indian diplomats were barred from entering any Sikh temple anywhere in Canada.
