men that they would be taken to task, The haemorrhaging continued with senior leader Yogendra Yadav resigning from all party posts on 31 May and the subsequent leak of explosive letters written by him and Kejriwal’s close aide Manish Sisodia. decisions taken by the party leadership at the three-day national executive meet that concluded on Sunday appear to have the potential to pull the party back from the brink.Political observers say that Kejriwal by reaching out to dissenting voices has taken a step in the right direction Arvind Kejriwal PTI “It is a life-saving mission He could have handled it worse by being adamant and not talking to those who resigned But by talking to them he has given himself a toehold in politics which he had lost completely” says Dipankar Gupta Director Center for Public Affairs and Critical Theory at Shiv Nadar University Describing Kejriwal’s decision to acknowledge issues raised by Yadav as a “positive move” Hilal Ahmed Assistant Professor at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies said “It is very important for someone like Kejriwal to look at the questions that Yadav has been raising These have to do with some of the most fundamental issues that the party as a political front has constituted itself So for instance the question of ideology has always been an important question for AAP and Yadav was the only person who was actually trying to articulate the question of ideological positioning in a nuanced way without losing the content of the anti-corruption movement So when Yadav says something significant I think it was the right move by Kejriwal to accept that mistakes had been made” The party has formed a 11-member committee to come up with plan for the massive nation-wide year-long mission to build the organisation “from the booth level to the national level” during which party volunteers have been instructed to “go from village to village to spread the party ideology get in more people and create a strong organisational structure to establish honest politics in this nation” Speaking about how crucial this exercise is for AAP to succeed as a political party Ahmed said “Every political party needs an organisation It is very important to structure the party as a collective How do you keep people intact without any without commitment Commitment building and adherence to some outlines need to be worked out and for that you need a fluid outline of beliefs – what we call an ideology in the 21st century And that belief is worked out by making a collective In that sense it was fairly obvious that the organisation is very important for the party” But AAP’s bottom-up restructuring model says Gupta could spell trouble “Restructuring should start from the top Rahul (Gandhi) made a big mistake by saying he is going to change the Congress organisation from the booth level Political parties have to change from the top You have to introduce a passion and a mission and you take that down to the booth level You don’t begin with booth level You don’t begin with swaraj Begin with the top get your act together and then you push it down and hope for acceptance” says the sociologist The big challenge for the party he says will be attracting new people “Bringing the old-timers back is just the beginning The point is how to win new people For Kejriwal to have a legitimate bunch of people around him they must be people who are good at their jobs whatever professions they may be in In Benaras I met many people who have this background but they have no position in Kejriwal’s outfit They are there only for the love of fighting the established political parties Kejrwal has to make sure the party reinvents itself from a party of rabble-rousers to one with people with high levels of credibility under whom rabble-rousers may function” says Gupta The outcome of Lok Sabha polls and the fallout within the party have brought AAP to yet another make or break situation in its short history But it could be an opportunity for the party to fashion a new future say Ahmed “This is a very good political time for AAP All the short-term supporters have left and now only the people who are really committed to the movement from which this party has come up are with them In this scenario it is very important that all the differences should be discussed politically and professionally and if they manage to do that it will provide the manthan (churning) that the party needs” By: Reuters | Published: October 10 2017 11:45 am Argentina need to win against Ecuador to keep qulification hopes alive (Reuters Photo)

Published: May 28 2016 12:30 am Virat Kohli Top News When Virat Kohli chopped a routine loosener from Dhawal Kulkarni onto the stumps in the first qualifier— getting out for his first duck after 51 innings — it was gentle re-affirmation that he was after all human He too can stoop to the follies of normal batsmen For since the World T20 and through much of this IPL he had seemed nearly flawless and faultless — almost superhuman The body of runs he has racked up speaks for itself: 273 runs at an incredible average of 13650 in five innings in the World Cup followed by an outlandishly unbelievable tally of 919 runs at 8354 and a strike rate of 15194 helping himself to four hundreds as well In eight previous editions the most a batsman hadmanaged was 733 En route to this remarkable feat Kohli made a few grousers bite back their words too When he notched his first hundred against Gujarat Lions his team lost and unreasonably they put it on his perceived inability to hit sixes Kohli’s predisposition and reliance on singles and twos was mocked There was an element of credibility in the contention for he had cleared the ropes just once in the innings But Kohli as he often does went about debunking the misconception of his six-hitting ineptitude so convincingly that his next three hundreds saw him hitting as many as 25 The nature of the format the constraints of time only make Kohli’s achievement more special At 919 with just a match more Kohli can go full throttle for that stupendous 1000-run mark That would arguably make him the Bradman of the shortest form of

drug smugglers Australia has been pursuing an eleventh-hour campaign to save Myuran Sukumaran 33 and Andrew Chan 31 convicted in 2005 as the ringleaders of the "Bali Nine" plot to smuggle heroin out

rebuke Indonesian Foreign ministry spokesman Armanatha Nasir warned that "threats are not part of diplomatic language and no one responds well to threats" Abbott under pressure after a recent internal
