(also spelt as Dhinakaran) fancy himself to be the Oviya army marching in to take over the AIADMK headquarters In a state that seems to be quite taken in by Bigg Boss a political version of the show is waiting to be played out in Chennai The high point could be the Saturday episode when Dinakaran may march to Royapettah to show he remains the AIADMK ‘Bigg Boss’ by proxy If he does so it would be a way to avoid elimination from the power race In February when O Panneerselvam revolted against VK Sasikala before she was convicted in the disproportionate assets case it seemed to be end game for the Mannargudi family The family however managed to stay afloat by ensuring one of their own Edappadi Palaniswamy became the next chief minister But since then EPS has displayed more loyalty to the chair than to the kingmaker The chief minister has tried to be in the good books of the BJP by sidelining Dinakaran; almost happy to nominate him for eviction from the AIADMK house By announcing that he will enter the AIADMK head office Dinakaran is trying to tell the BJP that he is the one who matters Or at least that they cannot afford to ignore him The Dinakaran camp was piqued at the manner in which its support was not sought for the NDA candidate Ram Nath Kovind in the presidential elections Dinkaran also had to face the humiliation of announcing his support unilaterally File image of AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran PTI Sincethe last week there has been much speculation over the AIADMK joining the BJP-led NDA While there is no basis for the rumour-mongering Dinakaran wants to ensure that should anything materialise it is his number that is on Delhi’s speed dial given his position as deputy general secretary and not that of EPS Dinakaran is also taking a leaf out of party history Old timers recall how in 1988 Jayalalithaa led a similar march to the AIADMK office with her small band of supporters to send a message to the AIADMK government led by Janaki Ramachandran MGR’s widow That was Jayalalithaa’s dramatic way of showing she is the one who mattered In a party where sepia-toned flashbacks matter immensely Chinnamma’s nephew is trying to do an Amma EPS has been careful in his utterances choosing to take on a Kamal Haasan instead of his rivals within the party He has spent the past six months consolidating his Gounder community base that would now be less than willingto cede political space to the Thevar community to which both Dinakaran and OPS belong EPS is also strategically going to be in Perambalur on Saturday which will force the police to decide on how to handle Dinakaran’s march on its own Having lost much ground due to a 40-day stint in Tihar Jail Dinakaran needs to catch up This is because OPS and EPS have been touring the state in a bid to strengthen their hold over the cadre Dinakaran’s hopes to be the king however will be a case of overestimating himself There is considerable ill-will against the family on the ground and given that he has legal issues to take care of the return of the native won’t be so easy To gain political legitimacy will be a herculean task for him despite the minuscule support he enjoys in the AIADMK legislature party But at the same time not everything is ranged against Dinakaran He has been smart enough to not vent his frustration in public giving the two factions of the AIADMK 60 days to sort out their differences and merge However it was obviously a non-starter given that the biggest impediment to a merger are Dinakaran and Sasikala themselves However he has let his supporters like Perambur MLA Vetrivel speak Vetrivel has warned that ministers who speak against Dinakaran and Sasikala will be shown the door The Mannargudi family came together for a condolence meeting last month at which both Dinakaran and Dhivakaran Sasikala’s brother were present The realisation has dawned on the clan that divisions between them will be exploited by the non-Mannargudi part of the AIADMK Most believe the 60-day period that Dinakaran announced was more to sort out the differences within the family Anot very vocal minority in the AIADMK feels that even if the taint of going to jail is on Dinakaran it was for the cause of the party They point out that the charge of bribery could not even be proven against Dinakaran despite the might of the Union government against him This section is also not pleased with the manner in which OPS and EPS have allowed the BJP to control the AIADMK from the backseat This they point out is quite a contrast from the Jayalalithaa era when she would not brook any interference from Delhi in Tamil Nadu affairs Clearly in the alphabet soup politics of the AIADMK the final word on who among the EPS TTV and OPS factions will have the final laugh has not yet been said Congress has finally decided to project Priyanka Gandhi the daughter of party president Sonia Gandhi as the leader of its campaign for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2017 A report in The Hindu stated that Congress spokesperson in UP Satya Dev Tripathi said that Priyanka will venture out of Rae Bareli and Amethi where she has campaigned for Congress in the past and hold 150 rallies across UP Priyanka Gandhi will be Congress’ chief campaigner in UP say reports PTI The party is also planning to hold a convention in Lucknow in mid-July once party vice-president Rahul Gandhi comes back to India from his vacation abroad In that convention Rahul will launch the campaign and present Priyanka as its leader said the report “It is settled that she (Priyanka) will be seen beyond Amethi and Rae Bareli this election With Rahul Gandhi she will take on rival parties Different leaders and strategists have different suggestions Some have suggested that the mistakes made with Rahul in 2012 of over-exposing him should not be repeated There are others who feel that she should first be brought to the AICC There’s still another section which wants her as the face of the election campaign” The Indian Express quoted a source in the Congress as saying An earlier report in DNA had also said that Congress general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad had met Priyanka and formally proposed to her to take charge as chief campaigner after securing a nod from Sonia Gandhi In June Azad had favoured Priyanka Gandhi campaigning outside Amethi and Rae Bareli for the state Assembly elections next year "I do hope that she campaigns in some other places as per time available to her" he had told reporters In May also Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had said that the party favours Priyanka getting into active politics Digvijaya who had said she has the potential to emerge as a mass leader had added "As far as we (Congress) are concerned we will be very happy if she comes into active politics" Party’s election strategist Prashant Kishor had earlier recommended that Priyanka plays a bigger role in the UP elections Even the people of Amethi Rahul Gandhi’s home constituency told Rahul to bring Priyanka into active politics Congress has had a dismal performance in Uttar Pradesh so far In the last assembly polls Congress had won just 28 of the 403 seats in the state In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls the party had secured only two seats in UP with only Sonia and Rahul emerging victorious The Congress has been in political wilderness in Uttar Pradesh since 1989 following the emergence of divisive ‘Mandal-Mandir’ politics and rise of the BSP which took away its crucial Dalit vote base In the recent five assembly elections held in Assam West Bengal Tamil Nadu Kerala and Puducherry Congress managed to secure a victory only in Puducherry Bringing Priyanka into active politics could be a whiff of fresh air for the Congress As Sandipan Sharma wrote in this Firstpost article "For the Congress Priyanka Gandhi is indeed an idea whose time has come Whatever be the outcome of the expected ploy it will immediately inject new life in the Congress veins Its workers will get a sense of direction the party a new face and voters the option of looking at a Rahul-mukt Congress Comparisons with leaders of other parties can wait but in a tossup between the Gandhi siblings Priyanka is the clear winner" However Priyanka will have to deal with a lot of challenges perhaps the most difficult one being the allegations of money laundering made against her husband Robert Vadra Once Priyanka becomes the face of the Congress in UP the attacks on Vadra may become more caustic Only time will tell whether Priyanka will be able to make any difference to Congress’ fortunes but her leap into active politics has been demanded for a long time and may make things difficult for the BJP In fact BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra reacted to reports that Priyanka will take an active part in campaigning for the UP polls and said that Congress was bringing Priyanka only because Rahul had failed "Congress’ attempt to bring in Priyanka shows that Rahul Gandhi has failed If Rahul had succeeded that there would not have been called Priyanka" another report in The Indian Express quoted him as saying (With inputs from PTI) New Delhi: The evaluation for the class X and XII board examinations this year shall be done as per the grace marks policy that was in vogue when the students submitted the examination forms the Delhi High Court ordered Central Board of Secondary Education on Tuesday A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Pratibha M Singh refused to allow the CBSE to withdraw its moderation policy for the exams held this year saying "rules cannot be changed after the game has begun" Under the moderation policy grace marks are given to the students in exams for difficult questions or errors in the question paper Representational image Firstpost The court said the students who took the exams "ought to have been put to notice" as they have the "right to know" what the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was doing "These children who have worked so hard and have burnt the midnight oil are entitled to some stability and the only stability they know is the system Do not instill insecurity in them Don’t do it (withdrawal of the policy) this year" the bench said "You cannot play with the future of students" it said adding "we are deeply concerned by the timing of the policy" The court said while the CBSE’s decision was "wonderful" as it was attempting to bring uniformity in the evaluation process to address the issue of "spiking" of marks it "should have been done prospectively and uniformly for everyone across the country" The ruling assumes significance as some states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu have decided not to withdraw the moderation policy for 2017 Another "distressing" factor was that the CBSE had "completely ignored" the fact that conditional admission had been offered to Indian students by foreign varsities on the basis of the evaluation policy in place while it decided to withdraw the moderation policy It said the students who would have got such offers would have taken loans and made payments and if the policy is withdrawn it would cause "grave and irreparable financial loss" to the children "It cannot be denied that a change in policy can have drastic consequences Grave and irreparable financial loss may also enure to the students" the bench said and added that it may also "completely change the course of academic future of students especially those of Delhi" The court said it "would be a tragedy" if the CBSE students lose out on seats in foreign varsities to children from other countries because of the change in policy "Don’t trouble the children who have given the exams" it said while hearing a PIL by a parent and an advocate challenging the Board’s decision to withdraw the moderation policy Senior advocate Balbir Singh appearing for the petitioners argued that already some states have declared the exam results for Class X and XII and they have given the students the benefit of the moderation policy He said that students of such states would stand a better chance of getting the 10000 seats in the Delhi University as compared to students of the national capital Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain appearing for CBSE said no student had a vested right to expect that his or her marks would be increased He also said that it was decided to withdraw the policy to address the issue of "spiking of marks" The court however said that no matter how many guidelines are there it "cannot change human nature human error or psychology" as it was impossible for an examiner who checks thousands of answer sheets to give his or her 100 percent to the process of evaluation The bench said even exceptionally sensitive and well trained teachers would find it impossible to maintain objectivity after checking 10-15 answer sheets "It is a horrible job" it said while terming as "ridiculous" the marking system in place During the hearing the court was told by the CBSE that the deliberations over the withdrawal of the policy had begun on 24 April and the decision was approved on 4 May and circulated on 10 May To this the bench said that even on 10 May the Board had "not seen it fit" to inform the students about the change in policy The court noted that the meeting for change in policy took place on April 24 after majority of the exams had got over and the evaluation of some subjects had already started The court said that the petitioners Rakesh Kumar and advocate Ashish Verma have made out a prima facie case to show that "grave and irreparable loss" would be caused if no interim protection is granted It told the Board to follow the evaluation policy which was in place when the students had submitted the exam forms and listed the PIL for further hearing on 20 July The court had on Monday termed as "unfair and irresponsible" the CBSE’s decision to scrap its ‘moderation policy’ The plea had also contended that the decision denies a level-playing field to CBSE students as compared to those of other State Boards and entities in matters of college admissions and grant of streams among others Written by Express News Service
