Howeverthe political empowerment of Muslims in urban and semi-urban areasevident in the 2012 municipal electionspunctures this votebank theory The State Election Commission does not provide any data on the basis of religionbut it has put the names of all the 12000-odd elected representatives of 630 civic bodies on its website Scanning the listsone finds that out of 11816 seatsMuslims have won 3681that is3115 per cent of the seats This is a striking jumpcompared to the 1712 per cent share of Muslims in the UP assembly elections in 2012 and the 875 per cent share in the parliamentary elections of 2009 This increased representation of Muslims is not confined to any one region of UP Rohilkhandwith a 34 per cent Muslim populationtops the list with 535 per cent Muslim representation in various municipal bodies This is followed by Awadhwest UPeast UP and east UP (north) Even in Bundelkhand with 669 per centand the Doab with 112 per cent Muslim populationsthe Muslim share in civic bodies is higherat 887 per cent and 1562 per cent respectively If we look at specific civic bodiesthe trend is mirrored there there are 88 per cent Muslim members in Mubarakpur (Azamgarh) and Kakrala (Badayun) nagar palika parishadsand 93 per cent Muslim members in Kheri (Lakhimpur) and Kithor (Meerut) nagar panchayats These four places represent different regions east UPRohilkhandAwadh and west UPrespectively This holds true of other sub-regions too One explanation for this expanded Muslim representation is that in urban and semi-urban areasMuslims tend to cluster around a few pockets But how did this grassroots upsurge of Muslim representation happen without parties like the SP and the BSPwhich have vigorously championed the Muslim causebut which did not participate in these polls Is this an indication of the Muslim communitys growing autonomy vis-à-vis political parties The SP contingent in the Lok Sabha did not contain a single Muslim MP in 2009despite massive Muslim support for the party Some Muslim partiessuch as the Peace Party and the Qaumi Ekta Dalhave tried to take advantage of this fact and fared well in some pockets of east UP and the Terai beltbut they have yet to become real players in state politics And yetit is clear that Muslims are now confidently taking to political contests without the aid of political parties Why is this increased Muslim representation in civic government not being replicated in assembly and parliamentary elections Most assembly and parliamentary constituencies have a mix of rural and urban areasand Muslim localities in rural areas may not be populated densely enough to give Muslim contestants an edge on the basis of community support They have to reach out to the entire electoratein which political parties play a crucial role The rising number and growing clout of Muslims in urban government have the potential to genuinely improve their lives This grassroots empowerment will achieve more than anything the Akhilesh Yadav

(Representational Image) Top News AIR INDIA will start operating four flights a week from Chandigarh to Thailand’s capital Bangkok from October 29 the airline told the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday In an affidavit submitted before a division bench of the High Court Station Manager G S Tomar said the airline “proposed to commence operations on Chandigarh-Bangkok route” from October 29 with a new ‘A-320 Neo’ aircraft The response came in a civil writ petition before the HC bench on the condition of Chandigarh International Airport The High Court was also informed that it would take four months to procure the plant and machinery for resurfacing of the runway because of which no time-frame has been set for the completion of the carpeting work “It is a very high technical job and one of the kind being done for the first time” the central government counsel told the division bench Submitting its response on the status of Amritsar-Birmingham-Toronto flight from the Amritsar airport Air India has said it has no immediate plans to resume the Amritsar-Toronto flights directly as they have been incurring heavy operational losses on a consistent basis “The flights continue to incur losses even with the current routing of Amritsar-Delhi-Brimingham and as per the financial figures the flight has incurred a loss of Rs 993 crore in the month of January this year and a cumulative loss of Rs 133 crore for the period April 16 to January 17” said the Air India in its response The HC Bench during the previous hearing had asked the airline to prove that the claim of petitioners was wrong that 92 per cent of the passenger traffic was from Amritsar region during 2006-2008 when Air India was operating its flight from New Delhi-Amritsar-Birmingham instead of from Amritsar-New Delhi-Birmingham However the airline only submitted the data from 2013-2016 saying that only 35 per cent board the flight at Amritsar and said the reversing of the pattern would result in a loss of the traffic from other points which currently connect in Delhi and there would be further increase in the losses of the operation on the route “This is the data of now and not what we asked you (Air India) to discount Time has changed Unfortunately your general manager system has not changed” the division bench observed adding that the airlines which were unheard of yesterday are now planning to take over Air India A high-level meeting on the issues related to Chandigarh airport is scheduled in the first week of August in Delhi The proceedings of the meeting will be submitted

counting their chickens too early It is amusing to hear many pundits predict a turn in the fortunes of the BJP in Bihar Over the past two days there has been a wave of reports suggesting that the BJP campaign is floundering and the party is nervous about the result after the first two rounds of polling (12 and 16 October) At the risk of sounding like a bhakt it has to be pointed out that the optimism within BJP critics and celebrations in the Mahagathbandhan camp are premature Both the alliances are still in the race in the election and very little separates them at the moment Two reasons have been proffered to argue that the BJP is so rattled now that it is changing its strategy One it is removing Narendra Modi and Amit Shah from posters and banners in Bihar and replacing them with mugs of state-level NDA leaders And two Modi has cancelled his proposed rallies because of adverse feedback Mountain out of molehill ‘Men are like children they believe anything’ Agatha Christie’s one-liner in The Triangle at Rhodeshas been often proved to be correct But nowhere is the gullibility of men more visible than in an election where every rumour is believed to be gospel every analysis
