Priyanka Gandhi. The teachers were still on top the water tank till the filing of the report. Shah worked in various organisational capacities before he got the ticket for the Sarkhej Assembly by-election in 1997. Shah’s first assignments in the BJP were as an activist with the BJP’s youth wing the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) in 1987 He rose gradually to hold posts including ward secretary taluka secretary state secretary vice-president and general secretary in the BYJM He won the seat from Sarkhej in 1997 and continued to represent it for three more terms before shifting to Naranpura in 2012 These three terms included a huge victory in the post-Godhra election 0f 2002 Modi won his first election that year but it was Shah’s margin of over 150000 votes that stole the show for the state BJP In 2007 Shah would retain Sarkhej with an even bigger margin Amit Shah AFP The Modi-Shah ‘dream team’ The Modi-Shah partnership matured in the 1990s In 1995 after Keshubhai Patel became chief minister the BJP had its best ever opportunity to wipe out the Congress in Gujarat From isolating political rivals within the BJP to luring rivals from other parties and especially the Congress from using local industrial associations to cooperative institutions Modi and Shah both made huge contributions to the growth of the BJP in the western state Keshubhai appointed Shah as chairman of the Gujarat State Financial Corporation (GSFC) allegedly at the behest of Modi who was then the chief minister’s closest ally in the party The GSFC isconsiderably powerful amonglocal industries and Shah was able to leverage his skills as an organiser strategist fund-raiser and more during this period Years later Modi would go on to serve as chief minister of Gujarat keeping the post for over 12 years During this period Shah handled as many as 10 departments as minister at different times including the all-important home department Shah has managed portfolios including Prisons Law and Justice Civil Defence Excise Prohibition Home Guards Police Housing Transport Gram Rakshak Dal and Legislative Affairs The modern-day Chanakya Keeping a low profile wherever possible he has been called a modern-day Chanakya and master strategist but the soft-spoken man is also known to answer calls from party workers himself and engage in long conversations to resolve any issues The BJP’s unprecedented victory in UP — 73 seats out of 80 — may have been partly due to skilled caste calculations candidate selection the Modi wave the tireless campaigning and more but a large contribution to the win was also the average party worker’s enthusiasm In one media interview a senior BJP leader in the state was quoted as saying he had not seen such a buoyant cadre since the Ram Janmabhoomi movement At least one reason for this enthusiasm is Shah who is known to be accessible to party workers and cadre In the nearly 11 months he spent in Uttar Pradesh as state in-charge ahead of the general elections Shah is believed to have personally met large numbers of leaders from every district The Uttar Pradesh campaign was Shah’s trial by fire From having to assuage the egos of senior party leaders denied tickets to travelling across the length and breadth of the state Shah hit the ground running ever since he took charge on 12 June 2013 He devised strategies –including the booth-level management that reaped rich rewards — that will certainly become fodder for academic research and political imitators alike Thousands of committed activists were assigned one polling booth each and were assigned the responsibility of reaching out to each and every voter whose name featured in the electoral roll for that booth In most areas workers were exhorted to meet each voter not once but repeatedly That kind of micro-management was not his only strategy Even in February 2012 when Shah travelled through UP during the state’s Assembly elections he had reportedly begun to target specific socio-economic groups who could be lured away from Akhilesh and Mayawati Caste calculations would play a significant role in strategy and in candidate selection Even in the mid-1990s while Modi and Shah set about the task of seizing control of organisations such as the cooperatives and the industrial associations Shah was known to have an unusual understanding of caste considerations Amit Shah the accused Shah will be the first BJP president to have serious criminal cases pending against him including in the trial stage While he is an accused in the alleged extra-judicial killings of Sohrabuddin Sheikh his wife and key witness in that case Tulsiram Prajapati he was exonerated in the Ishrat Jahan case He was also embroiled in controversy in 2013 when reports emerged of the government snooping on a woman architect at the behest of ‘saheb’ Former Dy DGP DG Vanzara’s recorded comments about the involvement of kaali daadhi and safed daadhi (the Gujarat Crime Branch’s codenames for the then chief minister and the then home minister of the state) in the killing of Ishrat raked up a huge controversy too Shah has dismissed these charges as a political conspiracy claiming that the UPA was using the CBI for politically motivated investigations Shah’s past came back into headlines when the Modi government blocked the nomination of former Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium to the Supreme Court Subramanium alleged that the government’s action was motivated by his role as amicus curiae in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh case PM Modi’s real no 2 It was always amply clear who was going to be the second most powerful person in the country once Narendra Modi is sworn in as prime minister This was apparent even during the Lok Sabha election campaign long before Shah’s name was tossed about as the likely successor to Rajnath Singh The Jaitley-Rajnath-Gadkari troika pale in significance in comparison to the years of mutual trust and partnership that the prime minister and his once deputy in Gujarat have forged over the decades In that sense what post Shah holds — before news emerged that he was in the reckoning for the party president’s post it was widely rumoured that he may contest the by-election from the Vadodara Lok Sabha seat that Modi gave up — is of little consequence Shah would have remained Modi’s closest confidante regardless of whether he was given a Cabinet berth or a Parliament seat or a big party post Modi trusts Shah implicitly and more than anybody else The idea of Modi contesting from Uttar Pradesh began to be bandied about as early as late-2012 and in June 2013 barely days after Modi was declared the leader of the BJP’s 2014 campaign Shah was despatched to Uttar Pradesh the state that everybody knew would be the foundation of a future BJP victory It would be another three months before Modi was declared PM-candidate and another six months before it became absolutely certain that the PM candidate would himself contest from UP Nevertheless Uttar Pradesh with its 80 seats was always going to be the biggest challenge for the BJP With such high stakes the fact that Shah was entrusted with UP was early confirmation of Modi’s choice of lieutenant-in-chief It all but inevitable that he will be the man in charge of the next BJP grand plan: total domination in strongholds and steady expansion in areas where the party has only a marginal presence There are Assembly elections coming up in critical states including Haryana Delhi Jammu & Kashmir and Maharashtra and there is widespread agreement within the party and in the RSS that Shah is the best man for the job With his elevation now as party president Shah’s first priority will be the Assembly polls in Jammu & Kashmir Jharkhand Haryana Maharashtra and Delhi There are also bypolls to a dozen Assembly seats in UP as well as to the Lok Sbaha seats vacated by Modi (Vadodara) and Mulayam Singh (Mainpuri) Those who know Shah believe he will look for a clean sweep He is

to the cricketing community of a potential crisis and a threat to the game as a whole due to the rise of privately owned T20 leagues across the world Speaking to ESPNcricinfo Brearly said “For international cricket to flourish competitive levels need to be close and teams need to be able to field their best players The committee is worried that with the spread of privately owned T20 leagues and the rapid increase in remuneration more players from counties lacking the funds to pay their top players well will choose these domestic tournaments ahead of making themselves available for their countries” “The more this happens the greater the threat to international cricket not only to Test cricket but also to ODI and T20s “The committee is aware of the gradual encroachment of domestic T20 leagues into cricket’s schedule and the threat this poses to Test cricket Whereas a few years ago ICC was willing to accept a window for the IPL now the question is: do we need windows for Test cricket” Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum said “I don’t see T20 leagues as the devil by any stretch” “But it’s how we continue to make sure Test cricket continues as an important game at the same time That’s where there’s probably a tipping point: what’s more important These leagues or the international game “The actual health of the game is outstanding but the perception in some parts of the world is that the entertainment of Test cricket is diminishing So we’re trying to ensure there is context to every Test and we feel the Test Championship would bring that in and we

Jonathan blamed on Boko Haram the Islamist militant group he said would soon be defeated In the first a suicide bomber rushed onto a bus in the northeastern town of Potiskum before setting off a blast that destroyed the bus and killed 16 people according to security and hospital sources A police spokesman said the bomber was a man but that some witnesses had mistakenly blamed a teenage girl who was in fact one of the victims On Sunday a girl with explosives strapped to her killed five people outside a market in the same town In Tuesday’s second attack two suicide bombers in a car struck a major bus station in the north’s main city of Kano killing at least 10 people police spokesman Ibrahim Idris said A Reuters witness saw the twisted burnt wreckage of four vehicles and the charred remains of at least two bodies "I saw the vehicle drive up to that point and just a few minutes later there was a loud blast" said witness Bello Gearam "Some people were burning others running" President Jonathan blamed Boko Haram whose struggle for an Islamic state in religiously mixed Nigeria has killed thousands of people and displaced over a million The use of suicide bombers has become a common tactic of Boko Haram since last year as the group expanded territory and became stronger and more deadly But in the past three weeks it has begun to suffer a string of defeats in a military offensive by Nigeria and neighbours Cameroon Niger and Chad all of which have been destabalised by the Islamists "TIDE HAS TURNED" "President Goodluck Jonathan condemns the reversion by the terrorist group Boko Haram to the callous bombing of soft targets . in the wake of the rapid recovery by Nigerian troops and their multinational allies of areas formerly controlled by the sect" his office said in a statement "The days of mourning victims of incessant terrorist attacks in the country will soon be over as the tide has now definitely turned against Boko Haram" A mine planted by Boko Haram killed at least two soldiers on Tuesday in the town of Bosso in Niger’s southeastern region of Diffa Niger’s defence ministry said Last Saturday Nigerian troops backed by air strikes seized the northeastern border town of Baga from Boko Haram the military said a significant victory in the offensive But failure to protect civilians is a major criticism of President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration ahead of an election scheduled for March 28 Yobe state and Kano have both seen many Boko Haram attacks but have never been taken over by the militants the way northeastern Borno state has and are hundreds of miles from the main theatre of the war against the insurgents On Monday defence spokesman Major-General Chris Olukolade said air strikes were under way on Boko Haram targets in the Borno state

to restrain them and avoid any developments that might lead to increased risk to nuclear safety and strategic stability Representational image AFP "I wanted to say that we do share your concerns particularly about the development of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal We’re concerned most by the pace and the scope of the Pakistan’s missile program including its pursuit of nuclear systems" Special US Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Olson told lawmakers during a hearing on Pakistan convened by House Foreign Affairs Committee "We are concerned that a conventional conflict in Southwest Asia could escalate to include nuclear use as well as the increase security challenges that accompany growing stockpiles We have had a very active dialogue at the highest levels with the Pakistanis in which we have made clear the nature of our very specific concerns" Olson said on Wednesday in response to a question from Congressman Brian Higgins He said the US has asked Pakistan to restrain its nuclear and missile programmes "As with all nuclear-capable states we have urged Pakistan to restrain its nuclear weapons and missile development and stressed the importance of avoiding any developments that might invite increased risk to nuclear safety security or strategic stability" he said "We are not negotiating a 123 agreement with Pakistan" he said His remarks came after US lawmakers asked the American government to be tough on Islamabad as it does not seem to be sincere in improving ties with India and has accelerated the pace of arsenals’ production Higgins during the hearing alleged that Pakistan is not sincere in improving its relationship with India "Pakistan is involved in an arms race against what it believes is its existential threat with India According to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Pakistan could have 350 nuclear warheads in the next decade becoming the world’s third biggest nuclear power outpacing India France China and the UK" he said "There is no positive sign of any improved relations with India because Pakistan justifies its nuclear proliferation as a deterrent against aggression from the outside So the US has to get tougher with Pakistan We have to call them out on this double game they have been playing not this year not last year not five years but for the past 15 years" Higgins said "Pakistan let’s be truthful about this plays a double game They’re are military partner but they’re the protector and the patron of our enemies And this has been going on for 15 years Since 2002 US aid to Pakistan economic and military has averaged about USD 2 billion a year Pakistan’s annual defence budget is only about USD 5 billion a year He said if Pakistan falls apart or if Islamic extremists take over it’s a nightmare scenario for the US "It’s a big country about 180 million people it has a lot of Islamic extremists and it has nuclear weapons And to have Islamic extremists with nuclear weapons is a primary goal of al-Qaeda and it would be major victory for them and the outgrowth of al-Qaeda the Islamic state and a major defeat for us the US" Higgins added PTI Amit Shah burst on to the electoral scene in Gujarat
