prime minister at the Cauvery River Authority (CRA) meeting held recently The authoritys meeting was convened after a gap of nearly 10 yearsthat too after the Supreme Court pulled up the Centre on the Cauvery issue The sharing of the Cauvery waters has been a contentious issue for decades In 1990the Centre set up the Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) to adjudicate on the dispute The tribunal had issued an interim order in 1991directing Karnataka to make available to Tamil Nadu 205 thousand million cubic feet of water in a water year (June to May)following a monthly time table As part of the scheme for implementing this orderthe Centre constituted the CRA in 1998chaired by the prime minister Other members included the chief ministers of the basin states Tamil NaduKarnatakaKerala and Pondicherry The CRA is not entrusted with the task of deciding on water availability or planning and management of the river; it only ensures implementation as long as the interim order is in force The CWDT order of 1991 did not provide a formula for sharing waters in times of distresswhen the rains fail Although a group of experts at the Union ministry of water resources considered the issue in 2003they could not arrive at a consensus The Cauvery Monitoring Committee (CMC)a panel set up to assist the CRAdecided in 2009 to refer the matter to the authority for decision as and when such conditions arose The CWDT gave its final award in 2007 As the Centre and the states needed further clarificationsthe award has not been notified till now Hencethe CRA continued to ensure the operation of the interim order Since its implementation became difficult due to failed monsoonsthe authority had to convene a meeting to decide on the releases to be made With there being no consensus among the membersthe PM ruled that Karnataka should release 9000 cubic feet per second dailytill October 15to Tamil Nadu Tamil Nadu was not happy with the ruling as it did not meet the demands of sustaining the samba paddy cropcultivated over 15 lakh acres in the Cauvery delta Karnataka was not happy either; it had no water to spare from its dams In a state facing its worst drought in 40 yearsgiving water would mean its farmers suffering and its cities being deprived of drinking water Both the states have indicated that they will be approaching the apex court for directions and the stalemate continues Disputes in the sharing of interstate river water is not limited to the Cauvery In many basinsthere are states busy quarrelling with each other on their water rights The solution is to have the concerned states hold talks and agree on a criterion to settle the disputebut there are no institutions that could provide a platform for discussion So the states rush to the courts seeking legal remedies and the dispute lingers on for years A river basin organisation (RBO)constituted to represent the stakeholderswould have enabled frequent dialogue among the states to arrive at the needed consensus on critical water issues It would also have encouraged them to look beyond water rights and concentrate on water needs for promoting joint ventures in areas like hydropower and flood control The only forum for discussion available at present is the National Water Resources Councilchaired by the PMwith the chief ministers of the states and administrators of the Union Territories as members But the meetings are held many years apart and even thendecisions are seldom taken for want of timeso the forum has not served the purpose an RBO would have Although the existing River Boards Act (1956) has provisions for setting up RBOsit does not give the requisite authority to the Centre to regulate interstate rivers through such institutions Unfortunatelythe Centre has not amended the act so far to empower itself to set up such organisations Although many high-powered bodiessuch as the Sarkaria Commissionhad advised the Centre that Entry 56List 1of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution gave it ample powers to regulate interstate riversthe Centre does not seem inclined to use such powers It is therefore for the Centre to empower itself to regulate interstate rivers and constitute RBOs with a broad mandate and authority to disentangle the issues that complicate the process of negotiations It must also provide for better management of the countrys water resources The

forwards continue to struggle with recurring injury problems the Premier League club’s joint-chairman David Gold has said Strikers Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho scored a combined eight league goals last campaign as they were plagued with injuries and the London side were heavily reliant on midfielders Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini to make up the deficit None of West Ham’s players reached the 10-goal mark as the club finished 11th in the league last season and Gold confirmed that signing goal scorers for next season was the club’s main priority “It’s clear to most fans that we are desperate for centre-forwards… Andy Carroll is injury-prone as we know we have had an injury problem with Sakho and we have just got to bring in centre-forwards” Gold told British radio station talkSPORT “Without strikers you struggle in the Premier League You struggle in any division because strikers are your key players “You have to spend your money wisely but it must be on strikers particularly strikers that have had experience with Premier League football… the very best we can afford” Defender Pablo Zabaleta has been the club’s only signing so far in the current transfer window For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsDelhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is simply unbeatable when it comes to practicing the art of staying in the news With the much debated 15-day odd-even experiment on private vehicles in Delhi coming to an end on Friday evening the radio and television advertisements backing this formula would also go away soon His feisty verbal assault on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley regarding the Delhi District Cricket Association issue which came in response to CBI raids on his principal secretary’s office is now a thing of the past as well Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal PTI Notwithstanding all that Kejriwal is a wizard when it comes to grabbing headlines perennially Even before he would eclipse from public discourse the AAP chief found a new way to be in the leading news cycle After holding a media briefing to pat his own back on Friday and that of his government on the odd-even experiment he took to Twitter to generate a new controversy again attempting to claim victimisation The Delhi chief minister went to the extent of daring the Prime Minister for no apparent reason It seems he wants to thrive more on his unnamed and unverified source based information whether it is right wrong or completely imaginary "PMO sources-Next raid on Manish or Satinder Officers under them being pressurized to get something wrong signed from them" the Delhi chief minister tweeted Manish Sisodia is Delhi’s deputy chief minister while Satinder Jain is a minister in his government holding important portfolios of health industries home public work department and power Then in an another tweet in Hindi he targeted PM Modi saying “You may do whatever you want to (but) the truth is with us god is with us You can do us no harm” https://twittercom/ArvindKejriwal/status/687924864901083136 The purpose of these tweets are obvious Kejriwal wants to impress upon the people that the Modi-led Central government is targetting the Delhi government with important ministers and senior officials interfering with his work wasting time and energy to spread malice against the Delhi chief minister and his ministerial colleagues Assuming what Kejriwal (holding all important post of Delhi chief minister) is saying is true then two things should follow: First he has a mole inside the higher echelons of the Prime Minister’s Office whose loyalties are with him and not with the PM and the Centre and keeps on feeding him what Modi thinks and does in office So if Modi believes in what Kejriwal says he would go on a wild goose chase after this anonymous official Again putting vital national resources Intelligence Bureau and so on and so forth on a mere suspicion If he does that Kejriwal will get another agenda to target the PM Second Kejriwal knows the PMO and Centre better than Modi does If that is the case then the Delhi chief minister could build a rightful campaign plank in 2019 to occupy the country’s topmost executive post — PM of India Also if there are no CBI raids against Sisodia and Jain Kejriwal would claim that it is because he forewarned Modi or since he successfully scared Modi that the idea of raiding Sisodia and Jain was put off After CBI raids on his principal secretary Rajendra Kumar’s office in the Delhi Secretariat Kejriwal had called PM Modi a "coward" and a "psychopath" Kejriwal’s latest tweets however has a flaw If he had such a good mole in higher echelons of the PMO or the CBI as he now claims to have how is that he was caught unaware on 15 December last year He might claim that he developed that mole subsequent to the raid After all he has to be in the news every day When Congress president Sonia Gandhi her son Rahul Gandhi and four other senior Congress leaders appear before a magistrate on 19 December to honour the summons issued by the court in the National Herald case they will have the option of jail or bail Indeed it would be no ordinary day and no ordinary appearance before a trial court It’s a day which could determine the course the Congress would take from here on So far the Congress from Sonia and Rahul to other leaders in various positions in the party hierarchy has been mixing rhetoric with legality even holding the Indian Parliament to ransom but inside the court room facts of the matter and legality will prevail But what they decide on the jail or bail option will be loaded with political connotations Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in a file photo PTI A front page news report in Telegraph quoting sources said “Rahul seems to have made up his mind not to seek bail and to ask the magistrate to send him to jail during the hearing in the National Herald case on December 19” Sonia Motilal Vora Suman Dubey and Oscar Fernandes will opt for bail the report added Rahul and Sonia are clearly trying to win the halo of martyrdom by projecting themselves as victims of the dirty tricks department of the Modi government It was in this context that Sonia whose statements otherwise have only been rare said "I am the daughter-in-law of Indira Gandhi and I am not afraid of anything" Rahul claimed “(This is) one hundred per cent political vendetta This is pure political vendetta coming out of the PMO It is their way of doing politics” adding what has been almost customary for anyone under similar circumstances “I have full faith in the legal system of this country” Both tend to forget that if anyone today is closest to be compared to Indira both in terms of situations and substance it is their bitter political rival Narendra Modi not them The popular verdict in his favour in 2014 was as much for his development pitch and proven track record as for the general perception that he had been deliberately and tirelessly persecuted by the Congress Sonia and Rahul want to turn the tables on Modi not realising that neither the popular opinion nor the facts of the case at least from what have so far come out is on their side Modi’s support base across the nation was built over the years and he had solid footing in his home state By contrast the Congress’s support base across the nation was lost over the years As a WhatsApp message in circulation sometime earlier said “Dadi (Indira) Ko Banane ka shauk tha aur pote (Rahul) ko girane ka” In terms of mass appeal and reach Modi stands closer to Indira (albeit in different historical contexts and political leanings) than Sonia and Rahul Both Indira and Modi had a far bigger appeal than the social support base of their parties Second Indira’s sustained rule and policies had united all opposition parties something that several opposition parties are trying to do against Modi By “Indira’s daughter-in-law” assertion it is not clear what Sonia is trying to convey other than reminding the nation of the politics of entitlement and dynastic inheritance Is she conveying it to the Congress’s splinters like Trinamool Congress and Nationalist Congress Party to be by the side of the family of their erstwhile leader Indira Apart from some moral support from Trinamool no other party has come in their support in Parliament They cannot comprehend why both Houses of Parliament must face unruly scenes and daily adjournments and sacrifice key bills such as GST and the one for a real estate regulatory authority for an issue that relates exclusively to the Congress’s first family When Rahul finally decides to go to jail and not opt for bail he should take some lessons from Arvind Kejriwal’s experience if not from some others in the past On May 21 2014 Kejriwal appeared before Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha in a Patiala House Court in connection with a defamation case filed against him by BJP leader Nitin Gadkari The magistrate asked him to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs 10000 which Kejriwal refused saying it was a matter of principle for him He landed in Tihar jail The magistrate in her three-page order observed that the procedure of courts cannot be "thrown to the winds" at the whims and fancies of the litigants "The court cannot act as a mute spectator when a particular litigant intentionally seeks to violate the procedure established by law This case cannot be dealt with any differently than any other criminal case where the courts insist on furnishing bail bond/personal bond to secure the presence of the accused persons The accused in the present case cannot seek differential treatment to be let off only on an oral undertaking in violation/divergence to the settled practice/procedure regarding bail" Kejriwal went to jail hoping that it would create an avalanche of public sympathy for him and people would hit the streets across Delhi the way they had after the arrest of Anna Hazare during the peak of the latter’s anti-corruption movement But nothing of that kind happened The High Court too refused to turn down the lower court’s order After staying in jail for a week Kejriwal returned to the same magistrate to seek bail That incident created a wedge between him and his lawyer Prashant Bhushan also a co-founder of AAP Later while throwing Prashant Bhushan out of AAP Kejriwal went at length on how it was because of Bhushan he had to go to jail Kejriwal obviously didn’t forget his jail experience and forgive Bhushan for giving him wrong advice Rahul has an

conduct” when she resigned from a role monitoring integrity at soccer’s world body South African judge Navi Pillay said in an email published on Friday that FIFA put “undue influence” on her governance committee colleague Miguel Maduro who barred Russian deputy prime minister Vitaly Mutko from re-election to FIFA’s ruling council The former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights resigned in May – days after FIFA ousted Maduro – in an email to FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura now published by a British parliamentary committee Pillay told Samoura who left the UN to join FIFA last year that its integrity rules guarded against “improper interference exercise of influence or pressure” on officials who were appointed to be independent “I adhere to principled conduct at all times; and cannot countenance serving in an institution whose officials violate the norms and standards of good conduct that they themselves adopted” Pillay wrote Maduro met with British lawmakers on Wednesday and told how Samoura and FIFA President Gianni Infantino pressured him to protect Mutko Blocking Mutko over rules prohibiting government interference would be a “disaster” for the 2018 World Cup and threaten Infantino’s presidency Maduro claimed Samoura told him Mutko was forced to give up his FIFA Council seat representing European soccer though continues to chair Russia’s committee organizing the 2018 World Cup Maduro’s ouster provoked three independent colleagues to resign in protest: Pillay corporate human rights expert Ron Popper and New York University law professor Joseph
