Civic officials said around 40 trucks of debris had been removed from the site of the collapsed building Express photo Top News A day after six persons died and two others were injured in a building collapse in Kamathipura the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) has ordered a probe into the incident It has also drawn up an ‘action plan’ to inspect all the buildings in the vicinity The three-storey building Gulmohar was over a hundred years old and was undergoing repair work being overseen by the MHADA MHADA officials said no one lived in the building though it was listed as residential “We have ordered an inquiry into the incident to find out reasons behind the building collapse and other related issues” said Sumant Bhange chief officer of MHADA’s Mumbai Building Repairs and Reconstruction Board Bhange further said that Sanjay Pande deputy chief engineer of Zone-III is heading the probe and has been asked to give a report within three days “We have also given an action plan to the officials to carry out inspection of dilapidated buildings in the vicinity of the Gulmohar Such buildings will have to be vacated if they are found to be dangerous or dilapidated and residents shifted to transit camps” added Bhange According to Mumbai Building Repairs and Reconstruction Board data there are nearly 14000 cessed MHADA buildings in the island city with some older than 70 years All these buildings were constructed before 1969 These buildings are called cessed buildings as they pay a cess to MHADA’s repair board for their maintenance Every year MHADA’s repair board conducts a pre-monsoon survey of cessed buildings to draw up a list of structures that are dangerous Officials said that this year’s list will be out by May 15 MHADA officials however admitted their inability in getting the buildings declared as dilapidated or dangerous vacated “Since many people residing in the cessed buildings pay very less amount as rent they refuse to relocate Some of them even go to court to either seek a stay or state in the affidavit that they are willing to continue living in the building despite it being declared dilapidated So we can’t do much in such cases” said a senior officials of MHADA Civic officials said that they had removed around 40 trucks of debris from the site of the collapsed building “Around 320 metric tonne debris has been removed We will now recover the debris removal charges either from MHADA or the landowner We will finalise the amount and will proceed in th matter in a few days” said a civic official

on the ground that the police investigation in the case was proper" said Arshdeep Singh Cheema the counsel for Junaid’s father Jalaluddin "During the course of the hearing the complainant has not been able to show that there are serious flaws in the investigation which would lead to the conclusion that the same is shoddy or tainted "Besides there is nothing to show that the incident has any

Indian Express App More Related NewsAnniversaries are occasions for assessing the good bad and ugly When it comes to leaders who evoke extreme responses appraisals resemble lavish eulogies or end up as outright condemnation Assessments of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s performance in the past three years have contrasted from #TeenSaalBemisaal to #TeenSaalGolmaal It would be prudent to step aside and instead of merely focussing on government functioning also evaluate the performance of another element vital for his current political invincibility — the partyPrime Minister Narendra Modi AP In the wake of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s electoral sweep of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand a smart headline writer termed it as Bharatiya Juggernaut Party If he was in the party where creating alliterations is a favoured mental exercise the wordsmith would have received a fair share of kudos After all the switched word means something that is "a massive inexorable force that seems to crush everything in its way" In the context in which it was made the alteration couldn’t have been apter If in the past three years we have witnessed the emergence of a new BJP a party that shed its tradition of closed-door meetings appearing like a goshthi or conventions that resemble a jamboree then India has also seen the emergence of Amit Shah as president who combines ruthlessness unprecedented administrative acumen and political cunning He is a man more awed than admired He too spawned several notable headlines ‘The Shah of Permanent War’ being just one Elections for him and the party are actually nothing less than war If he enters into a combat the objective is always resounding victory In the run-up to Uttar Pradesh polls he reportedly told party colleagues unsure of the terrain and its outcome "Chunav spashtata se lada jata hai chunav ka lakshya jeet hota hai" (Elections are fought with clarity of mind with the single objective of victory)" It is ironical that the man without who no discussion on the BJP begins or ends was not a certain to be elevated as president when the results were declared in May 2014 He was even weighed as a potential junior minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Initially speculation revolved over Rajnath Singh’s ambition to continue as party chief and stay out of government That arrangement however was unsuitable for Modi because it would have resulted in the dual power centre Modi wouldn’t have allowed the party and government to be at cross purposes Eventually Modi inducted Singh into his cabinet and appointed Shah as party president The reasons behind this can be understood by juxtaposing Shah’s fundamental trait with that of the other contender — JP Nadda Though a Modi loyalist for long Nadda remains a genial person and quintessential satrap Modi needed a merciless workhorse completely focussed on the task in hand and someone not averse to blunt-speak regardless of who was before him When Shah assumed the reins of Uttar Pradesh for the 2014 parliamentary poll the party was in shambles Local leaders squabbled among each other and its fabled organisational network had withered away Affiliates of the Sangh Parivar were not motivated as party leaders did little to encourage a sense of participation in them The party continued contesting elections on old strategies unable to harness technological capacities that had been done in Gujarat Consequently Shah made several changes and results were phenomenal When he became party president the national picture was no different and Shah initiated similar alterations Besides modernising the structure of the party introducing new ideas like technology-based mass membership drive and irrigating the organisation at the lowest rungs Shah brought in corporate-style system of vertical heads heading programmes in contrast to the horizontal nature of the party under presidents prior to him Tasks were allocated and targets set In the aftermath of the loss in Bihar four senior leaders — LK Advani Murli Manohar Joshi Arun Shourie and Shanta Kumar accused Shah of centralising the party’s decision-making process To an extent this was true but it has to be contextualised in the backdrop of the existence of contrasting theories of leadership and principles of functioning within the Sangh Parivar The RSS was established by KB Hedgewar on the principle of Ek Chalak Anuvartitva (follow one leader) and the same principle was practised by MS Golwalkar But Balasaheb Deoras introduced the notion of Sah Chalak Anuvartitva (follow many leaders) and Sarva Samaveshak or inclusive leadership Evidently the Modi-Shah duo is more attuned to the Hedgewar-Golwalkar theory of intra-organisational functioning This marks a decisive shift from the collegiate style of functioning BJP after it was remoulded from the Janata Party’s debris Undoubtedly Modi is the presiding deity in this BJP and Shah is the proverbial Hanuman to Lord Ram The government has its priorities sorted out and the party is expected to trumpet these periodically Whenever party leaders appear to be falling short Shah spurs them on Recall when he asked MPs and other leaders to campaign in their constituencies on positives of demonetisation Centralisation of the decision-making process firmness while tackling aspirations within the party (remember Yogi Adityanath’s limited role in ticket distribution) and no-nonsense work style has proved infectious down the ranks The biggest achievement of the Modi-Shah duo is to develop a sense of participation in the wider Parivar and ensure that each key person at the lowest level develops a stake in ensuring BJP’s uninterrupted run Currently the BJP on its own or with allies controls 17 states and this adds up to nearly two-third of the Indian population For a party in disarray till late 2012 this is no mean achievement Inner-party democracy may be a casualty but that is the price most are willing to pay Ideological dominance and share of the political pie cannot but come at a cost and if this means maintaining strategic silence so be it Shah has to just ensure that cronyism is kept out of the party spoils are fairly distributed and hard work is rewarded Before the next parliamentary polls assembly elections are due in ten states of which Gujarat Himachal Pradesh Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh will witness a direct contest with the Congress While in Karnataka the party is most likely faced with a triangular battlefield of the four northeastern states of Meghalaya Mizoram and Tripura the BJP is making a concerted bid for power at least in Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura a Left bastion for long There will be thus little reason to change tack Issues remain for the party in states where regional parties are strong especially because aggressive attempts of Shah to emerge as a dominant party may cause unease among regional allies The task will not be uniformly easy as recent results of local polls in West Bengal established Whenever Modi is mentioned conversation invariably shifts to his reasonable chances of re-election in 2019 ensuring continuance in office till 2024 What gets ignored is that Shah’s first of the two full presidential tenures he is entitled to ends only in January 2019 months before the next Lok Sabha is due There are little chances of a change of guard close to polls and if the verdict is positive there is a likelihood for Shah to remain at the helm till 2022 or later By then the BJP would have acquired a firmer grip on Indian politics Shah has a clear agenda – work for a new phase of single-party dominance in the country He aims to preside over the party when it will truly be "another Congress" but of yore when electoral sweeps by the Jawaharlal Nehru was the routine By: Express News Service | Updated: May 12 2016 10:16 pm Adi Godrej: Vedic Indians were beef-eaters Related News Adi Godrej has done well to speak out against the ban on cattle slaughter and imposition of prohibition by certain state governments in the past one year Such policies the chairman of the $4 billion-plus Godrej Group has rightly pointed out have contributed to an overall environment of negativity deflecting and diverting attention away from the economy and the larger development agenda that governments are elected to implement The cattle slaughter ban legislation passed by Maharashtra and Haryana last year clearly targeted a community many of whose members are engaged in the beef trade Moreover the ban on consumption of beef and slaughter of even non-milking cows male calves bulls or bullocks has hurtfarmers In times of drought especially of the scale that Maharashtra has witnessed for two years now farmers find it difficult to maintain cattle By killing the market for such animals — which is what cattle traders and abattoir owners essentially provided — the BJP-led government has only added to the woes of farmers in Maharashtra To the extent that the demand for prohibition is seen to come mainly from women of less privileged backgrounds who are often victims of alcohol-related violence it can even be seen as serving a legitimate public good But the arguments against prohibition are compelling They range from those that question it for offering a “moral” solution to a public health problem and as an encroachment by the state on individual freedoms to those that point out that it is ineffective and counter-productive An outright ban on consumption and trade in liquor can indeed lead to worse results from the entire business going underground If the end result is the emergence of a new police-administration-criminal nexus along with smuggling from across the border and sale of spurious liquor the damage to public interest may be more than collateral Also the desperately addicted may still get their liquor albeit at a higher price and consuming a larger share of household income Finally there is the issue of revenue Last year states together grossed over Rs 100000 crore from alcohol That includes Rs 4000 crore for Bihar (which under Nitish Kumar has already imposed prohibition) and Rs 8000 crore for Tamil Nadu (where virtually every party has promised it in the current assembly elections) The revenue foregone would obviously have to be compensated through higher taxes including on essential goods and services Again that leaves families worse off than before Godrej’s forthright observations should be viewed as a call for restoring sobriety in public policymaking This is as much about bringing the focus back on governance and development as it is about avoiding actions that ultimately serve to only divide the people or to create new problems in
