game and how she eventually took up wicket-keeping in chat with ICC “I think it was under-10s or under-12s everyone had to have a go at everything and the first week I was bowling and thoroughly enjoyed it so I thought I was going to be a mean fast bowler” she explained “Come week three it was my turn to be wicket-keeper and I haven’t taken the gloves off since That was the end of my fast

interview with Times Now Rahul Gandhi did not look straight into the camera This was partly because his sister Priyanka Vadra was sitting in the room and he seemed to be addressing some of his answers to her In fact at one point in the interview the Congress vice-president turned to Priyanka and said “I keep telling my sister…” Robert Vadra reportedly advised his brother-in-law to grant the interview to Times Now although another channel had been given the impression that it would be first in the queue The venue for the interview was the Jawahar Bhawan headquarters of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation Priyanka oversees the foundation in her capacity as a trustee The foundation’s costly art collection including a large M F Husain was hanging on the walls Whether out of deference to Priyanka or because of a prior agreement Arnab Goswami who did not shy away from hard-hitting questions did not raise the issue of Vadra’s extensive land deals Wrong approach A central minister who played an active role in the 2004 and 2009 election campaigns of the Congress has questioned the need for Rahul Gandhi to have given an interview to an English-language TV channel The minister made known his views in a letter to Rahul He noted that in arranging interactions for Rahul in the past he had always given preference to regional language media and that English-language audiences tended to be critical Partymen also complain that Rahul was not properly briefed The question-answer session ran on for nearly two hours leading to some repetitious answers which could have been avoided if a clear and shorter time-frame had been fixed Rahul did not smile during the interview and appeared somewhat tense judging from the sweat on his forehead Bhushan or Kejriwal Rahul Gandhi has made it clear that the Congress is not planning to ditch the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi The Congress stance has left AAP taken aback as it is actually keen for its government to fall It is one month since Arvind Kejriwal took over and the media has started asking questions about AAP’s concrete achievements More importantly Kejriwal needs time to campaign for the Lok Sabha elections However an important well-wisher of the party has mooted the name of lawyer Prashant Bhushan as the party’s prime ministerial candidate and not Kejriwal This has created a rift in AAP Playing both sides Sultanpur MP Sanjay Singh was nominated by the Congress to the Rajya Sabha from Assam because it feared that he was about to go over to the BJP and this would have harmed Rahul Gandhi’s chances in neighbouring Amethi constituency During the 2012 Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh the Congress had performed disastrously in Amethi and the surrounding region which is considered a Gandhi pocketborough The Samajwadi Party had won 17 of the 20 Assembly seats in Rae Bareli Amethi Sultanpur and Pratapgarh One reason for the poor performance it was alleged was that Singh had quietly sabotaged the Congress campaign to show his resentment at being denied ministership in the UPA government For the past six months Singh had been talking to the BJP While Amit Shah wanted to give him a Rajya Sabha seat most members of the BJP parliamentary board wanted him to contest from Amethi When a rattled Congress which now also faces a challenge from AAP’s Kumar Vishwas offered him a Rajya Sabha seat Singh settled for the bird in hand Forcing a comment It was a senior BJP leader who suggested to the media that L K Advani would be nominated for a Rajya Sabha seat This upset the Advani household which made it clear that the senior leader was planning to contest the Lok Sabha elections A senior member of Advani’s office wanted the party to contradict media reports about the Rajya Sabha nomination Party president Rajnath Singh eventually made a statement that Advani could decide on his own seat General annoyance Cordoning off VVIP guests at Rashtrapati Bhavan garden parties on

Council of Nagaland frightened and forced people to stay home unless they voted for the Naga People’s Front Citizens were resigned election officers had been coopted the CRPF looked away saying that only security — as in violence — was their remit and determined miscreants registered multiple votes under various names rendering the election worthless as a test of popular will But this incident chilling as it was is a rarely seen subversion in India’s electoral process now And for that the credit goes to the Election Commission the overseer of the process which has become one of the most trusted public institutions in the last two decades Booth capturing used to involve the storming or takeover of polling stations by the supporters of one party intimidating or preventing people from casting a vote for rivals stuffing ballot boxes or interfering with them to change outcomes That has changed decisively now and elections have been made steadily fairer by the EC The introduction of electronic voting machines has made polls even more tamper-proof The EC has worked to expand access travelled to far-flung corners cleaned up registration rolls harnessed technology and simplified procedures to make sure every citizen can exercise her franchise In sharp contrast to the Manipur episode this scrupulous conduct of elections has encouraged rebel groups to become stakeholders invited disaffected citizens to believe in their vote’s capacity to affect political predicaments For decades after Independence the election commissioner was simply a senior government functionary The EC could have ended up like the office of the governor as a perch for services rendered to the powerful but instead it has renewed and revitalised itself remarkably becoming a fiercely independent multi-member body enforcing a strict code of conduct curbing the excesses of parties and candidates and going out of its way to level the field Election commissioners have often butted heads with the political establishment to ensure the freedom and fairness of our elections Since the 11th Lok Sabha election in particular the EC has worked to drastically improve law and order rebuking Union and state governments directing administrations to freeze firearms licences keeping open the possibility of preventive arrests in sensitive constituencies supervising the size and quality of security and insisting on the presence of public employees to monitor events The result is that even as countries like the US routinely worry about elections being “stolen” and the possible skews of electronic
