Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal (left) and Manish Sisodia stage protest next to Parliament on Monday.

The clash between Aam Aadmi Party and Delhi Police is an extremely unfortunate incident.
The party MLAs, led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, have staged a dharna and have refused to budge till the four Delhi police officers are suspended. The chief minister and his party members are justifying their protest saying seeking control of the Delhi police is a part of their poll manifesto. There are two main problems with their action – what the Aam Aadmi Party is doing will neither improve the police in terms of less corruption and more efficiency, nor will it lead to reduction of crime.

Aam Aadmi Party protest leaves Delhi’s aam aadmi in a huff-IANS New Delhi

As Delhi’s combative Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet sat in protest in the heart of the city, over the alleged inaction of Delhi Police, the “aam aadmi” (common man) bore the brunt Monday.

Four metro stations were shut from 9 a.m. and major arterial roads were blocked in central Delhi, in a bid to foil a mass protest called by the Aam Aadmi Party. Commuters had a harrowing time.

Gudsa Usendi is dead. GVK Prasad speaks -T.S. Sudhir IT

“I hope you will top up my prepaid card if I run out of charge,” said Gudsa Usendi and laughed when I asked for his mobile number. I understood what he was trying to say. This former spokesperson of the outlawed Maoists, who surrendered to the Andhra Pradesh police on January 7, was referring to a conversation a couple of years ago when he had called to share some information from inside the forests.

“My phone does not have charge so can you call me back,” he had said then. Amused as I was, I had expressed my surprise in my blog that a person who was the voice of India’s “biggest internal security threat” did not even have adequate balance in his cell phone SIM. Usendi obviously had read whatever was written about him.

The New Cycle Of Elections

January 20, 2014 at 12:24 am

By Dr Dayan Jayatilleka

A snapshot of the context in which the new electoral cycle commences is provided by, well, the snapshots of young Hirunika Premachandra receiving her letter of appointment as co-organizer of the SLFP’s Colombo Central branch from President Rajapaksa.

The upcoming elections to the Western and Southern Provincial Councils kick off a cycle of elections leading to the big ones, the presidential and the parliamentary. Contrary to the Opposition’s speculation, it is not likely that Presidential elections will be held this year. The story in the Daily Mirror (14th January 2014 – ‘Presidential Polls Early Next Year’) to the effect that that election will be held in early 2015 has the ring of credibility.

Ruthless pressure being imposed on Sri Lanka to kowtow to America and its Western cheer squad at Geneva was apparent during the recent visit of American Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice John Rapp. A cheap trick certainly unworthy of American diplomacy was used to strengthen unproven allegations  of war crimes against the Sri Lanka government during a visit of Rapp to Lanka’s north with the  American Ambassador in Colombo Michele J. Sison.
