There is a need, Evolved democracies,too have a robust culture of debate around social issues of race class and identity – the situation currently unfolding in Charlottesville in the United States is a testimony to that fact But for voters in America governance – not identity – determines their choice of candidate The quote that became the catchphrase for Bill Clinton’s 1992 election campaign – "it’s the economy stupid” – encompasses the attitude of American voters The economy healthcare education and job growth arepoliticalissues for the voters of the country and these are the issues that they vote on The Indian voter fails to make a distinction between political and electoral issues Adityanath for instance was voted to power in Uttar Pradesh purely on an emotive platform in an environment of polarisation Till issues such as education healthcare economy and employment become electoral platforms till we achieve a convergence of political and electoral concerns and begin to vote based on who would usher in the most effective and well-organised governance little will change If an incident the likes of the Gorakhpur tragedy were to take place in an evolved democracy the highest state authority (not just medical or administrative staff in the concerned hospital) responsible for the negligence would be investigated and sent to jail In India there is likely going to be an inquiry launched more as a tool of pacification or appeasement than motives of a genuine investigation where a scapegoat is identified and the big fish escape unscathed while we go back to debating frivolous issues that have little relevance to our future as a nation Written by Shubhangi Khapre | Mumbai | Published: March 10 2017 3:11 am Top News The Opposition may demand that the state government waive farm loans but the latter is instead focused on agriculture reforms to bring more farmers including small and marginal in the loan credit bracket signaling a clear shift from the populist step The state government’s enhanced allocation of crop loans disbursed to farmers in 2016-17 was Rs 51235 crore which benefited 52 lakh farmers across Maharashtra The loans disbursed through national banks was Rs 26470 crore private banks Rs 4126 crore rural banks Rs 3044 crore district central cooperative banks Rs 17548 crore and others Rs 44 crore According to data compared to 2014 crop loans disbursed in 2016 show an enhanced allocation of Rs 7942 crore benefiting an additional 766 lakh farmers What else is making news: Between 2015 and 2016 Rs 3435 crore additional crop loan was disbursed benefiting 90 lakh farmers By 2016-end 253 lakh new farmers had enrolled for crop loans availing Rs 2017 crore loans According to data in 2008 the Centre the UPA government was in power then had provided the state Rs 6910 crore to waive farm loans benefiting 36 lakh farmers Again in 2009 the state government waived loans up to Rs 4008 crore benefiting 34 lakh farmers Pointing to the quantum leap both in terms of higher crop loan allocations by the present state government and farmers who benefited from it a senior official on condition of anonymity said “Crop loans disbursed in 2016-17 amounted to Rs 51235 crore which is seven-eight times more than the loan waiver sanctioned in 2008 by the Centre And also if we compare the benefits 52 lakh farmers availed the enhanced loans compared to just 36 lakh who benefited from the 2008 loan waiver” Speaking to mediapersons last week Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said “My government is not against waiving loans We are in its favour but the step has to be taken at an appropriate time to maximise its benefits for small and marginal farmers facing hardships We have to exercise caution to ensure it is not misused thus depriving and defeating its very objective for which it is being debated” Under the government’s farm sector reforms restructuring of loans is being aggressively pursued and has brought results as zero interest rate in the first year coupled with low interest rate of 6 per cent extended repayment for next four years has provided relief to farmers Crop loans of Rs 5124 crore of 685 lakh farmers were restructured This facilitated 439 lakh farmers to seek fresh loans of Rs 3276 crore The entire interest rate on the loans for the first year was borne by the state government The farmers were levied 6 per cent interest for the remaining four years Former agriculture minister and Opposition leader Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil said “While agriculture reforms are welcome we still believe loan waiver is essential as it brings immediate relief to farmers” For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: July 16 2017 10:24 am The court pulled up the investigating officer of the case for conducting the probe in a lackadaisical manner Related News A businessman has been sentenced to three years in jail for duping silk traders of lakhs of rupees by a Delhi court which pulled up a police official for conducting the investigation in a lackadaisical manner The court allowed Delhi Police Crime Branch’s appeal and convicted the man who was earlier acquitted by a magisterial court saying he deceived the silk suppliers in a “pre-determined fradulent manner” and induced them to deliver the fabric costing lakhs of rupees Special Judge Hemani Malhotra declined the plea of convict Rajat Khanna alias Vikas Kapoor to grant him probation and said he could be given leniency and deserved to be punished in proportion to his crime It however allowed the plea of the Ghaziabad resident to suspend his sentence for a month to enable him to file an appeal before a superior court against the order “The court cannot lose sight of the fact that the convict in a pre-determined fradulent manner deceived the silk suppliers into believing that he was an exporter by the name of Vishal Kapoor and induced them to deliver silk fabric to the tune of lakhs of rupees after which he shut his office and disappeared” the judge said An FIR was lodged in 2004 on a complaint of silk fabric suppliers who alleged that Khanna and his associate Sachin Duggal approached them as silk exporters and supply the fabric to them Initially the accused and his associate paid them in cash for the fabrics but later stopped making payments When the complainants went to the accused’ office in old Rajender Nagar in Central Delhi it was closed the police said The court pulled up the investigating officer of the case for conducting the probe in a lackadaisical manner saying despite overwhelming evidence against Duggal alias Ravi Kapoor no steps were taken by the IO to arrest and charge sheet him It said the IO had sought time to file a supplementary charge sheet against Duggal but nothing was done and even the trial court did not demand any explanation from him “The IO is therefore directed to file supplementary charge sheet qua coaccused Duggal in the interest of justice within three months and file a compliance report qua the same before this court” the judge said The FIR alleged the complainants came to know that the accused had also cheated other silk suppliers to the tune of lakhs of rupees in a similar manner and they were using fake names of Vishal Kapoor and Ravi Kapoor whereas their actual names were Rajat Khanna and Sachin Duggal During the trial Khanna admitted that he was running a business of selling silk garments and had obtained fabrics from various suppliers He however claimed that he had made part payments for the supplies but could not pay the balance due to variation in silk prices Public prosecutor Atul Shrivastava sought setting aside of the trial court order arguing that it was bad in law as Khanna did not deny the fact that he had used a fake name or had obtained telephone connections on forged documents The judge while convicting Khanna said “I am of the opinion that the prosecution has successfully proved the guilt of the accused that he had conspired with his associate Sachin Duggal to cheat G L Soni Subhash Bansal Binod Kumar Sandeep Sabharwal and Vikram Kumar and in pursuance of the said conspiracy he had cheated these persons” The court noted that though Khanna compounded the offence of cheating with other suppliers he never compromised the matter with Subhash Bansal and his payment of Rs 13 lakh was due For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | Los Angeles | Published: March 27 2016 1:31 pm Heidi Klum
