Related NewsBeijing:A fringe group of hard-line conservatives who long for the way things were under communist China’s founding leader Mao Zedong have welcomed President Xi Jinping’s "new era" of socialism and its renewed emphasis on equality Their enthusiasm only goes so far though They don’t want to put Xi on the same pedestal as Mao File image of China’s president Xi Jinping AP At the ruling Communist Party’s leadership conclave that wrapped up this week Xi laid out a confident vision for a proud and prosperous China with the party firmly in control and cemented his authority as the country’s most powerful leader since Mao took power in 1949 and declared the founding of modern China Delegates praised Xi using Mao-era honorifics and he became the first serving Chinese leader since Mao to have a named ideology written into the party charter signalling that it will be in effect beyond his second five-year term which began this week "Their similarity is that they both want to rejuvenate the Chinese nation they both want an independent powerful new China" Song Yangbiao a Beijing-based neo-Maoist freelance journalist told Reuters "Chairman Mao freed the Chinese people from the oppression of the West while Xi Jinping has dedicated himself to giving new China a greater voice on the global stage" he said But Song said that it was "not realistic" to revive Mao’s party chairman title and confer it on Xi That elevation is a possibility that has been floated according to some sources with ties to the leadership "Chairman Mao’s authority was built from a long and arduous struggle Xi’s power came from the bureaucracy in a time of peace The history is totally different" he said Some mainstream party cadres at the congress did not have such reservations Many called Xi a wise and great "lingxiu" or leader an honorific only used for Mao Zedong and his short-lived successor Hua Guofeng Bayanqolu party chief of northeastern China’s Jilin province went so far as to call Xi "party helmsman" a term not in general use in senior Communist Party circles since Mao who was called the "Great Helmsman" "Accepting Xi as a powerful leader accepting him as the most powerful leader since Mao is a necessary trait of Xi’s new era" said Sima Nan a television pundit blogger and defender of Mao and the Communist Party “Look at how much he has said how much he has written how many people he has met – when does he have time to sleep” he said in reference to Xi Awkward legacy China has an awkward relationship with Mao’s legacy Mao is still officially venerated by the Party as the founder with a huge portrait overlooking Tiananmen Square and his face on every yuan banknote But he is disliked by many intellectuals and others in China who consider him personally responsible for the tumultuous decade-long Cultural Revolution and economic policies that caused famine and killed millions State media sometimes say that what Mao did was 30 percent negative and 70 percent positive Neo-Maoists dismiss criticisms of Mao as smears by Westerners and revisionists and the group vociferously defends Mao and his policies in articles online with occasional public shaming of those who slight his legacy In January a professor in central China was sacked from a university after Maoists protested a social media post in which he said Mao was responsible for millions of deaths While Xi has not lavished praise on Mao or his policies he has defended his "mistakes" and has drawn a line against attempts to revise the Party’s official history pleasing the neo-Maoists He has also borrowed from Maoist imagery rhetoric and campaigns to enforce discipline on cadres garner public support and strengthen the party’s leading role in society “Party government

infantile comments he made about President APJ Abdul Kalam one could say that it is a bit tactless to have moved him into the house where the former President’s family was staying and now are in the process of vacating By the same token it could have been a clever move to make him inherit (albeit temporarily) the house from the family upon whose patriarch he so clumsily commented The move has forced him to extol Kalam’s virtues and atone for his gaffe As an example of poetic justice dispatching him to 10 Rajaji Marg is exquisite retribution Mahesh Sharma IBNLive But that said it is not really an issue Anyone who knew the former president and his strict following of the rule-book would agree that Kalam would not have cared less about who took over this house after his family left For one it wasn’t the president’s house it is government property For another last October the Cabinet had passed an order saying none of these residences would be turned into shrines or memorials so bringing up this issue and soaking it in sticky sentiment is unnecessary It is also not for the AAP to waste energy on exercises where it has no legal fiat This area belongs to the NDMC and is outside the purview of the Delhi government Why get into arguments over such matters when there is real work to be done Also if making statements that are in the realm of the absurd was the yardstick for allotting ministerial accommodation then quite a few of them would join the ranks of the homeless Kalam would have scoffed the idea of a museum But he would have endorsed any initiative bed-rocked in education more so if it was targeting the weaker sections of society If we truly want to show our respect for this very exceptional president let’s do that find a decent cause but stop using his name in a petty political squabble Sometimes one gets the feeling that the AAP gets up in the morning with a single point agenda; how do we attack Modi today It is truly getting a bit boring What happens then is that trivial issues are blown into major conflagrations and even the arguable demands like handing over the police command are sidetracked There are some grounds being made that Sharma does not qualify for this one ofsix double-storey accommodations on Rajaji Marg because he is a junior minister That is still not a problem which should concern Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his party Nor should it matter that Edward Lutyens himself stayed here It is just a nice bungalow with no great history merely bricks and mortar If not Sharma then some other person bringing with him or her a fresh controversy One is also hard-placed to understand why the sentiments of millions of people should be hurt if an official bungalow is given in accordance with the rules and not out of line Sharma is the only minister waiting for a house and he got one when vacancy arose Why would anyone want to see this hand-me-down place as a Kalam tribute The former president’s possessions are going home to Rameswaram which is what he would have perhaps wanted While everyone would be very relieved if the AAP-led Delhi Government and the BJP-led Centre stopped this daily conflict and hugged and kissed and made up along with ending the hostility towards Lt-Governor Jung it seems unlikely to happen All we get is this regular feed of three feuding elements and a deteriorating capital city With dengue

fattening power subsidy bill running into crores and yet continuing with free power to farmers as part of its pre-poll promise the funds-crunched Punjab government is thinking of appealing to big farmers in its maiden budget to surrender subsidy so that the state could help the debt-ridden farmers Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh who according to sources has a 35-acre farm in his Moti Bagh Palace is likely to lead by exampleand surrender the power subsidy on the floor of the House Following this other ministers and MLAs of the Congress are likely to follow suit The free power was supplied to all farms in the state irrespective of the farmers’ income “The CM will be appealing to all the members of the Punjab Legislative Assembly to surrender the subsidy The Assembly has many big farmers including former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal The announcement is being made as part of the budget speech of the finance minister” said a government official The budget would be presented on June 20 Estimating a power subsidy bill to the tune of Rs 10000 crores including about Rs 5600 crore as last year’s bill Rs 2300 crore as arrears and another expenditure of about Rs 2500 crore the government would find it difficult to sustain it It is now banking on the big farmers to surrender the subsidy and save whatever it can “Even if we save Rs 2000 crore it can help us pay up the installment of loan waiver” said the functionary The Congress government while in its last stint from 2002-2007 had done away with free power supply to the farmers Though the government resumed it before the next election it could not retain power in 2007 and farmers were believed to constitute a major chunk of voters who kept the Congress out of power Not taking any chances this time Amarinder had made an announcement before elections that power subsidy would continue The state government working overtime on preparing the budget is likely to present a tax-free budget this time A government functionary said they are startled that the revenue deficit was almost working out to be Rs 13000 crore and a supplier’s credit of a whopping Rs 17000 crore was staring in the state’s face Supplier’s credit is calculated after considering all the pending salaries rentals post-retirement benefits material components and other bills pending The state is banking on GST as lion’s share of income GST receipts of Rs 23000 crore are expected to fill the state’s coffers in the current fiscal against an income of Rs 18000 crore last year While the budget document has not been finalised yet and was being tweaked everyday sources said the government had planned to hike the old-age pension by Rs 250 this year Currently the pension is Rs 500 and after the buget the beneficiaries will get Rs 750 per month The government plans to raise it by Rs 250 every year The Congress had in its manifesto promised to raise the pension to Rs 2000 every month For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian

making "hollow statements" he should initiate action at his level "Those in alliance with the BJP in Bihar should ensure that reservation is given and not demanded Mere hollow statements and cheap publicity on the matter will not suffice The Bihar chief minister should initiate action at his level also" she said Her comments came against the backdrop of the Bihar chief minister favouring a 50 percent reservation for backward classes in the private sector jobs and his suggestion for a national debate on it File image of BSP chief Mayawati PTI "It’s my opinion that there must be reservation in private sector too There must be a debate on this at the national level" the Janata Dal(United) leader had said on Monday Nitish whose JD(U) is now a BJP ally said there should not be any contract signed in the private sector unless the employers ensure the quota in their organisations Mayawati said BSP reiterates its demand of quota for Dalits OBC in private sector and also the economically poor among the upper castes and Muslim community She also demanded quota in promotions by amending the Constitution Kumar had said though his government favoured reservations in the private sector "in-principle" it has to be done in Parliament in accordance with provisions of the Constitution RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav too targeted Kumar over his remarks favouring reservation in the private sector saying it was not a new idea and that the state has seen little private investment Prasad however said his party is not against the idea of reservation in the private sector "We are also in favour of reservations in the private sector but this is not a new demand Mayawati had raised similar demands and so had Ram Vilas Paswan" the RJD supremo has said While the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) had suggested enacting a law to make private firms set aside jobs for marginalised sections the government earlier this year denied any move to introduce reservations in the private sector The NCBC had last year recommended that the government enact a law to make it mandatory for the private sector to reserve 27 percent of jobs for OBCs while Union Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan has suggested that private sector voluntarily set aside jobs for SCs STs and OBCs For a nation that loves cricket the demonetisation drive launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8

We might need to use something resembling the Duckworth-Lewis method that cricket scorers use when rains or disruptions mar a match PTI file photo We can expect the prime minister to announce on Saturday some populist handouts that would make the headlines on the New Year Day as he declares partial victory in a long-term war on black money that he will vow to carry on But the real ammunition may be held back until the February 1 budget What is clear is that there is no fairy tale El Dorado of a huge pile of unambiguously wasted black cash as it was being made out soon after the government pulled the plug on old 500 and 1000-rupee notes There was talk of a fiscal bonanza for the government through a windfall dividend from the Reserve Bank of India then The RBI has since virtually ruled out such a possibility Of the Rs 154 lakh crore worth of scrapped currency some Rs 14 lakh crore has been deposited in banks or exchanged already Some more money may trickle in through the ambiguous Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Deposit Scheme window over the next three months or in last minute deposits on Friday Clearly there is no winning shot in this match in sight What we can expect next is a patient round of bean-counting in the Finance Ministry as taxmen zero in on high-value cash deposits Some 60 lakh depositors have put in deposits totalling Rs 7 lakh crore since November 8 in instances exceeding Rs 2 lakh each But toothcombing these and actually calling the bluff on tax evaders may take months or years and in cases involving big fish involve appeals to income tax tribunals or even high courts However we can reasonably expect Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to announce a very comfortable fiscal deficit situation for the 2017/18 financial year when he rises to present the budget on February 1 This would be largely though anticipated income tax gains from the deposits made in banks The minister is already setting the mood by pointing to robust growth in tax
