Administration filed a writ petition against the state government and the state election commissioner challenging their decision to not hold elections in four hill municipalities without citing any reason” Watch What Else Is Making News The five-year term for the Darjeeling Kalimpong Kurseon and Mirik municipalities had come to an end in December last year GTA officials maintained that elections to these bodies should have been held at least six months before their tenure were over “They had started the process like publishing the roster (notifying reservations in wards) but ultimately elections were not held The government instead appointed administrators” said Ola GTA officials also alleged that they were not informed of the decision to appoint administrators In September last year the Supreme Court had agreed to examine the plea of GTA challenging the West Bengal government’s refusal to transfer administrative power and various subjects to it in spite of a tripartite agreement that was reached between the state and Centre in 2011 The bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur had asked the senior counsel P P Rao as well as counsel Shamik Sanjawala — appearing for GTA member Binay Tamang — to place before the court the notification which had been issued the West Bengal government in 2011 in which it had promised a transfer of power through a memorandum of agreement (MoU) at the tripartite meeting The MoU for the creation of GTA was signed on July 18 2011 at Pintail Village near Siliguri in the presence of then Union home minister P Chidambaram Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Gorkha Janmukti Morcha leaders GJM general secretary Roshan Giri alleged “The state government’s delay in holding civic polls is a murder of democracy By appointing administrators to run the municipalities the government is actually working towards increasing Trinamool Congress’ support base in the hills” For all the latest Kolkata News download Indian Express App More Top NewsIt cannot get worse than this for P Chidambaram the most articulate and powerful minister of the UPA government The latest revelations in theIshrat Jahan case assessed through an RTI by Times Now has practically nailed him in a position from where he might not be able to retrieve himself both as a leader and as a think tank of the Congress party Time will tell what legal recourse awaits the then home minister who might have to defend his actions in a court of law The Congress party will also have to gear up to face BJP’s onslaught over the issue in Parliament when it resumes for the second half of the budget session following the recess P Chidambaram AFP The former home and finance minister had perhaps forgotten about his own government’s most valuable gift to the nation – the Right to Information act More so with change of regime at the Centre his notings on critical files like Ishrat Jahan would not be beyond public scrutiny The official papers retrievedthrough an RTI clearly show that the first affidavit had followed due administrative pattern at all levels in the Ministry of Home Affairs and was finally seen and approved by Chidambaram with his signature dated July 29 2009 Only recently he had eloquently claimed that the first affidavit was filed ‘without’ his approval and thus a second affidavit was submitted before the High Court in which he only made ‘some editorial changes’ as a ‘compulsive habit of all lawyers’ He said ‘‘which part of the second affidavit is wrong I accept the responsibility for this affidavit It is disappointing that the home secretary who is equally responsible wants to distance himself from this “It was brought to my notice that the first affidavit was filed without my approval and it was being misinterpreted It was my duty to correct the first affidavit So we filed a supplementary affidavit after consulting the home secretary the director of Intelligence Bureau and other officers" Chidambaram said as per ANI The file notings for the two affidavits filed by the UPA government on the Ishrat case within a span of two months between second half of July to September end 2009 prove that the controversy on the subject was largely of his and the Congress leadership’s making Anyone with rudimentary understanding of how the government works particularly in such sensitive matters would know that Chidambaram’s change of mind within a span of about 50 days from – declaring Ishrat as a Lashkar-e-Taiba’s indoctrinated fidayeen operative to virtually an aspiring innocent Mumbra girl – couldn’t only have come from his end It had to be a high stakes political decision deliberated and cleared at the highest level of the Congress party and the UPA government The BJP as any other political party under the circumstances would do is out to milk the controversy for their own political benefits Chidambaram’s noting on the file in black and white helps them showcase how malicious the Congress could become in its intent and purpose to finish their emerging political challenger from Gujarat Narendra Modi and make every attempt to write a political obituary for him The party would then relate any other issue which the Congress opposes inside or outside the Parliament as opposition not to the issue but to the persona of Narendra Modi The party also wants to clear the name of its leader in a case in which he was never accused but was continuously targeted through various means by his political rivals For now Ishrat’s ghost would haunt Chidambaram Even otherwise these are not the best times for him The BJP leadership is currently mulling on possible actions that could be taken against Chidambaram A political battle is already being fought in the public domain Union Commerce Minister Nirmala

precarious fiscal health and high debt allegedly gave undue benefits to the tune of Rs 20928 crore to power developer the Jaypee Group which owned the 1000 MW Karcham Wangtoo hydel project in the state’s Kinnaur district The company sold the project after obtaining permission to do so from the state last year According to the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) Jaypee allegedly hid facts about the actual capacity of the hydel project and had hiked it to 1200 MW — 200 MW over and above the capacity approved by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) and the central government Share This Article Related Article The CAG said while the central authority and a committee it had set up detected the alleged illegality the Congress government in Himachal allegedly allowed the company to continue with production in 2015 without even a fine “The failure of the (state) energy department to detect the capacity addition on time and the non-levy of Rs 20928 crore on account of the capacity addition charges additional free power royalty and the firm’s share to the local area development fund constitutes extension of undue favour to the power developer” Ram Mohan Johri principal accountant general (audit) Himachal Pradesh said here on Tuesday The Karcham-Wangtoo hydel project was allotted to Jaiprakash Industries Limited for an installed capacity of 900 MW through the MoU route in August 1993 The CEA accorded techno-economic clearance allowing the firm to enhance capacity to 1000 MW in March 2003 The project was commissioned in May 2011 at a cost of Rs 6903 crore In 2011 however the CEA detected that the turbine in each generating unit had been designed for 300 MW in effect ensuring that the normal continuous output was of the total capacity of 1200 MW – 20 per cent above the rated output of the machine A state appointed Technical Committee (TC) also confirmed the specific deviations in June 2013 The CAG said that despite this the state government granted the company approval to continue with production in 2015 The Himachal energy department did not levy any charges for the capacity addition and for royalty on the additional free power royalty between 2011 and 2015 the auditor said It added that Jaypee paid only Rs 32 crore to the Local Area Development Fund instead of the Rs 102 crore it was obligated to pay as per the terms of the MoU “When we posed the questions to the government authorities they admitted that the company had no techno-economic clearance for the 1200 MW They also failed to levy dues to the tune of Rs 20928 crore” Johri said during a press interaction He added that the CAG would recommend a vigilance probe against officials of the Energy Department “Since it’s public money the accountant general (AG) will invoke powers to refer the matter for a probe by the state vigilance or any other agency after waiting for a response from the government and if it fails to act We have taken up the matter with the government” Johri said Two more cases The CAG has found alleged grave irregularities in the state government’s investments in two other cases It alleged that the state invested in a thermal power plant without any feasibility study and that its selection of Joint Venture Partner EMTA resulted in a loss of Rs 398 crore to the exchequer as the work on the project never began The case is being probed by Enforcement Directorate (ED) Another regularity of Rs 7164 crore was detected by the CAG relating to the grading and clarification of timber being sold by the HP State Forest Corporation For
