reported from fields and farms, ? The test of any state government against corruption depends on the appointments it makes at crucial and critical posts in the government like chief secretary director general of police principal secretary to CM etc The officers need to be honest with impeccable integrity This sendsthe message against corruption down the line in bureaucracy Meritocracy gets rewarded An officer with doubtful integrity is bound to give a bad name to a government and every state government should be aware of it Mere slogans of anti-corruption and good governance do not work What’s the reason behind theconstant friction between CM Kejriwal on one hand and Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and the Centre on the other The status of Delhi is different from a regular state so isits functioning They have taken an antagonistic stand against the Centre One needs to understand that Delhi isn’t just another state government but a union territory with the status of national capital territory Governance involving consultation discussion and mutual trust is best suited for Delhi Is it going to adversely impact the citizens of Delhi who voted the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to power There will be an adverse impact on the implementation of schemes meant for the welfare of the people Written by Yubaraj Ghimire | Published: August 26 2014 12:02 am Related News Last week Prime Minister Sushil Koirala refused to implement a crucial provision of the written understanding he had signed with the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) as the basis of forming the coalition government in March Koirala said the president and vice president should not seek parliamentary endorsement for their continuation as it violates the letter and spirit of the constitution Koirala’s stance is fraught with the risk of bringing many agreements especially after the political change of 2006 under review and subjecting them to selective rejection Political parties have signed one or another agreement that clearly undermines the provisions of the existing constitution This political confusion is inching towards a deadlock as evident in Sunday’s fresh crisis The Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPN-M) walked out of a meeting hosted by Koirala in which the Nepali Congress (NC) and the UML were present It was called to explore the possibility of the three parties taking a common stand on contentious issues like federalism and governance which have blocked efforts to deliver the constitution UCPN-M leader Prachanda wanted a “high-level” political committee (HLPC) headed by himself to explore the matter But the NC and UML were hesitant about bestowing such responsibility on a party relegated to the third position in the Constituent Assembly (CA) and showing signs that it is headed for another split “Without the HLPC we cannot move forward And if we don’t move forward that will be my defeat and a political victory of Mohan Baidya Kiran who wants an extra-CA body to make the constitution” said Prachanda Baidya had led the split in the UCPN-M in 2012 and his Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-M) has been demanding the CA’s dissolution and an “all-forces initiative to draft the new constitution” The total political fragmentation or the absence of a point of convergence makes the resolution of the contentious issues by next week and the finalisation of the draft constitution by the January 22 deadline look difficult if not impossible The NC and UML now insist that the country cannot afford more provinces and their number should not exceed seven against the Maoist insistence on the 11-province formula of the first CA Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clear message to leaders of Nepal’s Terai area comprising 23 of the 75 districts along the Indian border that India stood for a well-integrated Nepal and that Delhi would not even remotely support movements to weaken a neighbour was seen as a reversal of the UPA’s Nepal policy But now some leaders not happy with Modi’s approach are preparing to raise the “ek madhes ek pradesh” demand and begin a violent movement if necessary Emotive issues have their own strengths and pitfalls A government equally discredited is not ideal for writing a constitution Koirala discarding a past agreement may encourage other parties to review other agreements But all that will mean no constitution in January [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by The Indian Express | Published: February 4 2012 3:17 am Related

July 15 2017 12:20 pm The 24th-seeded American was a surprise semifinalist at the All England Club this year (Source: AP) Related News Sam Querrey woke up Friday with a chance to become the first American man since Andy Roddick in 2009 to reach a Grand Slam final He didn’t succeed but he’s already looking forward to giving it another go at next year’s Wimbledon “Pencil me in for a final and hopefully that will happen” said Querrey who reached the quarterfinals last year “We’ll see” The 24th-seeded American was a surprise semifinalist at the All England Club this year but that was as far as he got He lost to Marin Cilic 6-7(6) 6-4 7-6(3) 7-5 The big occasion playing in his first major semifinal on Centre Court didn’t seem to bother Querrey as much as his win over defending champion Andy Murray a couple of days earlier “I was actually more nervous against Andy in the quarterfinals” said Querrey a 29-year-old Californian “Today I felt pretty good” Querrey and Cilic both 6-foot-6 and with big serves managed to hold every time in the first set Through those first 12 games only 10 points went to the returner “That really settles me” Querrey said of that opening set “That settles anyone when you can kind of get out there and win your first few service games So I felt fine” In the second set Cilic suddenly was all over Querrey’s serve earning the match’s first break points He finally converted his fourth the only one he would need to take that set The third went to another tiebreaker and unlike in the earlier one Cilic closed well taking the last four points Querrey went up a break in the fourth but Cilic got it back and then broke again in the final game “I kind of felt like he pushed me around a little bit today” said Querrey who was playing in a major semifinal for the first time “I had that break in the fourth When he broke me back he just played a great game Kind of deflated me a little bit” Cilic to be sure has more experience in the big matches He won the 2014 US Open after beating Roger Federer in the semifinals and Kei Nishikori in the final At Wimbledon this year his draw opened up when Rafael Nadal lost to Gilles Muller in the fourth round Then Querrey defeated Murray in the quarterfinals Querrey didn’t make it easy on him though “I would say my mental toughness was on an extremely high level considering that both of us played amazing tennis in the first set” said Cilic who will face Federer in Sunday’s final “The level was absolutely unbelievable from both ends” Cilic took 16 of the last 18 points he served and five of the last six games to end it He finished with 70 winners and 21 unforced errors Even Querrey’s coach Craig Boynton was impressed with his player against those numbers “I don’t think it was anything that didn’t work for Sam It was more Marin locking in and getting a good read on Sam’s serve” Boynton said “I haven’t seen someone return Sam’s serve like that in a long time” For all the latest Sports News download
