TWO CASES THAT TEST THE CORE OF FEDERALISM OF CONSTITUTION

CRUCIAL SUPREME COURT DECISION COMING UP
Author: Amritananda Chakravorty - Published 21-01-2020 09:58 GMT-0000
The protests against the draconian trio of CAA-NRC-NPR continue in India, while the Judiciary waits for the ‘violence to stop’, before making any meaningful intervention. In contrast, several state governments have voiced their strong disagreements on the principle behind and implementation of these laws; out of these, Kerala and West Bengal stand out as the fiercest critics, with both the Chief Ministers, P. Vijayan and Mamata Banerjee, having directed to stop the work on the NPR (‘National Population Register’) in their respective states. The growing opposition of the state governments to the fascist policies of the Central Government led by the duo, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Home Minister Amit Shah, is a clear indication of severe strain on the federal structure of India, and the Indian Constitution.

CAA UNITES INDIA, BUT FOR DIFFERENT REASONS

YOUTH MORE WORRIED ABOUT EXTRA BURDEN THAN SECULARISM
Author: K Raveendran - Published 20-01-2020 10:57 GMT-0000
No other cause in recent times has evoked such spontaneous participation by the public as the campaign against the Citizenship Amendment Act. The previous occasion when this happened was the anti-corruption crusade launched by Anna Hazare, which provided a rallying point for all those who were disenchanted with the prevailing order and system of governance. People from all walks of life joined the agitation although there was no effective leadership that directed its course in any direction. It is a different matter that the whole movement ended up in an anti-climax.

BJP TO STEP UP ITS AGGRESSIVE CAMPAIGN IN BENGAL

GHOSH’S RENOMINATION AS PRESIDENT STRENGTHENS RSS HARDLINERS
Author: Barun Das Gupta - Published 20-01-2020 10:37 GMT-0000
By re-nominating Dilip Ghosh as the party’s State chief for the next three years, the BJP has given a clear message to its voters and supporters in West Bengal. The party will fight the next year’s State Assembly elections under his leadership. Ghosh is known for his crude and distasteful language. He also disdains to conceal his contempt for the State’s literati and the intelligentsia. In one of his recent public meetings he said that only those who were not sure of their parentage need be concerned about the NRC and CAA. The party faithfuls clapped enthusiastically just as about a decade or so ago loyal party supporters had clapped when a senior CPI-M leader had compared Mamata Banerjee with women of Kolkata’s red light area.
