Emma Thompson Joins Protest Against Shells Arctic Drilling

first_imgA colossal polar bear puppet the size of a double decker bus descended on Shell’s South Bank headquarters in London today.Acclaimed British actor and screenwriter Emma Thompson joined 64 activists and puppeteers who manoeuvred the towering creature to rest just metres away from Shell’s front entrance.It’s intended the polar bear titan will remain fixed there until Shell’s Arctic drilling window ends later this month. Six protesters are inside the bear, locked to her so she can’t be removed.Emma performed an original poem to Shell bosses that she has penned for the occasion, and then became one of the first people to break a legal injunction banning Greenpeace UK staff and activists from crossing a line drawn around the Shell building on the South Bank. Emma is one of more than seven million people who joined the Save the Arctic movement by signing up at savethearctic.org. More than 600,000 of them are from the UK.The three-tonne polar bear, named Aurora after the northern lights above the Arctic, will thunder a polar bear roar through Shell’s front door at intervals throughout her stay – demanding Shell turn off its drilling rigs and get out of her Arctic home. Audrey Siegl, a First Nations activist from Canada, will be performing a traditional song with the same drum she used to confront Shell’s Arctic-bound rig at sea in June.Just over two weeks ago Shell got the final permits it needs to start drilling for oil in the melting Arctic Ocean. Shell is there right now, hastily boring holes to look for new oil reserves. It’s got a window of mere weeks to strike oil and billions of dollars are on the line. But every second it drills it’s risking an oil spill in icy waters that would be almost impossible to clean up and potentially disastrous for the people and unique wildlife that call the Arctic home.“I’ve been to the Arctic, I’ve seen the beauty, I’ve seen the wildlife, and my heart breaks to think that Shell is up there right now, drilling for the oil that threatens not only their habitat but ours,” said Emma. “Make no mistake about it, we’re next. That’s why I’ve come to their HQ. I’m here to say no. I’m here to say this has to end. I’m one of millions of people demanding that this company pulls out of the Arctic, and this huge polar bear is roaring with our voices.”Patrick Earls, activist, said: “We’re a determined bunch and spirits are high. It makes sense to me that this giant polar bear has come to London, because Arctic drilling affects all of us, not just the people who live in the Arctic. It’s outrageous that a company headquartered in the UK is getting away with doing something this bad for the planet. I feel like because it’s a UK company, we’ve got a big responsibility here to stop them.”Climate change is melting the Arctic sea ice at an alarming rate, and this March the Arctic experienced the lowest sea ice maximum ever recorded. As the ice recedes, it becomes easier for oil companies to push their drilling rigs further north.Researchers concluded Arctic drilling is incompatible with limiting global warming to 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, a target agreed by most governments. An analysis of Shell’s own data has shown the company is betting on a four-degree temperature rise by the middle of the century – twice the increase described as “dangerous” by scientists.Two weeks ago, the Obama Administration gave Shell the final permissions to begin drilling into the Arctic seabed. It now has until 28 September to strike oil, at which time it must close up its operation for the winter.The extreme Arctic conditions, including giant floating icebergs and stormy seas, make offshore drilling extremely risky. The US administration acknowledged a 75% chance of a large oil spill over the lifetime of the wells. And experts say that an oil spill in the Arctic would be impossible to clean up adequately, endangering the Arctic’s unique wildlife.Greenpeace UK Arctic campaigner Elena Polisano said: “Arctic drilling is a threat to the Arctic and a threat to millions of people living on the frontline of climate change, yet Shell is ignoring all this in blind pursuit of profit. Shell says we don’t want to have a debate with them about the world’s energy needs, but we’ve asked them several times to meet and they’ve refused. We’d be very interested to hear how they think putting the world on track for a four-degree temperature rise by the middle of the century is going to benefit the people of this planet.”Shell’s past attempt to drill in the Arctic in 2012 was plagued with multiple operational failings culminating in the running aground of its drilling rig, the Kulluk. Shell has returned to the remote Chukchi Sea with the same contractor, Noble Drilling, which pled guilty to eight felonies following its last Arctic venture. Shell’s second rig contractor, Transocean, was implicated in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. This season, Shell has already suffered set-backs, including a one-metre tear in the hull of one of its support vessels.This year Shell has faced increasing public pressure over Arctic drilling. Shell’s Arctic rig the Polar Pioneer faced multiple protests as it travelled to the Arctic, including activists boarding it in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a several thousand strong ‘Kayaktivist’ protest movement in Seattle, and an Indigenous activist protest at sea as it sailed through Canadian waters. Shell’s icebreaker ship the Fennica, part of its Arctic fleet, was delayed in Oregon by a 40-hour ‘hanging blockade’ from the St John’s Bridge, Portland.In recent weeks, other figures from the arts and entertainment world such as Peter Capaldi, John Hurt and Maisie Williams spoke out against Arctic drilling. And public figures such as Al Gore, Hillary Clinton and the Archbishop of Canterbury expressed concerns about Arctic oil drilling.Shell has already spent $6 bn, and is expected to spend a further $1 bn this year on Arctic exploration.Source:GreenPeace UKlast_img read more

Bombardier sued over alleged train defects in Germany

Bombardier sued over alleged train defects in Germany by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 4, 2013 12:08 pm MDT BERLIN – The organization in charge of Berlin’s commuter rail service is suing Bombardier Transport (TSX:BBD.B) for $468 million over allegedly defective trains.Deutsche Bahn­ is suing the German-based Bombardier subsidiary in regional court because of what it describes as serious defects.The rail operator says the wheels and axle-shafts on trains have had to be redesigned and replaced at great financial cost.Braking systems and traction motors have also been adapted and, in some cases, replaced.“Over the last few months, DB had attempted in vain to reach an agreement in the form of an out-of-court settlement,” said a statement Monday.“On expiry of the standstill period, the company has now decided to have the matter clarified by the court and is suing Bombardier.”There are separate suits pending against Bombardier in Munich and Berlin regional courts, related to other trains, with Deutsche Bahn seeking another $214 million in compensation.In response, Bombardier issued a news release disputing the allegation Monday. It said it could even take steps to counter what it described as “defamatory” statements.It said that the Deutsche Bahn subsidiary, S-Bahn Berlin, had always been responsible for any maintenance work required on those trains.“Bombardier Transport is not subject to any contractual commitment related to the maintenance and repairs on the 481 series,” said the statement.

But if (Brexit Secretary) David Davis needs any help with Brexit Baldrick stands ready to serve.”Baldrick was known for his regular suggestions of a “cunning plan” – which would often be anything but.Speaking during PMQs, Mr Corbyn said to Mrs May: “On Monday, you told the House, ‘We have a plan which is not to set out at every stage of the negotiations the details’.”I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days.” https://t.co/uI4cuwdJpx I’ve been v outspoken about some Blair policies Iraq in particular.

The quote from today’s Prime Minister’s Questions that is perhaps most memorable is Jeremy Corbyn’s likening of Theresa May to Blackadder’s Baldrick.He attacked the Prime Minister for not having a plan to deal with a “chaotic” Brexit.Mr Corbyn told her: “On Monday, you told the House, ‘We have a plan which is not to set out at every stage of the negotiations the details’.

The Labour party is against free trade.”I want to introduce controls on free movement. Labour wants to continue with free movement.”I want to follow the will of the British people. He wants to frustrate the will of the people.”Mr Corbyn then mentions Baldrick, yes Blackadder’s Baldrick, to liken Mrs May to him.”Our cunning plan is to have no plan,” he jokes.Mrs May responds by saying that Tony Robinson, who played Bladrick, was in fact a Labour member.It is perhaps brave of Mr Corbyn to quote Robinson’s character after the actor recently described the Labour leader as “c***”. 10:51AM’Have you no compassion?’ Jeremy Paxman tackles Ukip leadership contender Suzanne Evans after she backs physical checks on child migrants Nick Boles, a former Conservative ministerCredit:Telegraph/Clara Molden “I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days.

Speaking at Goldman Sachs on May 26, Mrs May is reported to have said: “I think the economic arguments are clear. I think being part of a 500-million trading bloc is significant for us.”I think, as I was saying to you a little earlier, that one of the issues is that a lot of people will invest here in the UK because it is the UK in Europe.“If we were not in Europe, I think there would be firms and companies who would be looking to say, do they need to develop a mainland Europe presence rather than a UK presence?

Mrs May supported David Cameron’s Remain campaign ahead of the referendum.However, she made relatively few interventions and allies of Mr Cameron have since said that she repeatedly refused to publicly back his campaign. She was seen as a “reluctant remainer” during the run-up to the referendum.Ahead of the vote she made a speech which offered cautious backing to staying in the EU, but with the caveat that there are “problems” associated with membership and that the UK “could cope” outside the bloc.She added at the time that the UK is “big enough and strong enough to be a success story in or out of the EU”.

Dublin MEP forbidden from travelling to Gaza

first_imgA DUBLIN MEP has been refused permission by Israeli authorities to visit Gaza on a diplomatic mission.In a two-line email received this week, Labour’s Emer Costello  – who is leading a group of MEPs on a visit to Palestine – was told by Israeli authorities that it was not their policy to facilitate visits ‘which will strengthen Hamas’.“We were absolutely dumbfounded,” Costello told TheJournal.ie.The refusal of permission was unexpected. The group of MEPs, tasked with maintaining relations between the EU and the Palestinians, had been granted permission to visit Gaza on trips in previous years.Costello pointed out that 3 TDs visited Gaza earlier this year on a delegation with Christian Aid without any problems, as did Minister of State for Trade and Development Joe Costello earlier this month. Both missions were similar in scope to that planned by the MEPs.“It appears to be different treatment that is being meted out to members of the European Parliament,” said Costello.The MEPs has planned to visit projects funded by UNRWA – the United Nations Relief and Works Agency which aids Palestinian refugees – which had just had €300 million worth of funding approved by the EU, including food centres, schools, health centres and universities.“Our primary purpose is to try and monitor events taking place in the region, to work with the Palestinian Authority and to see how we can advance the EU’s role,” said Costello. “To understand the political issues you need to see what’s happening on the ground”.The group had been refused permission once before, 4 years ago, for security reasons which, as Costello pointed out, “can be anything”.“This time it’s more political reasons, in the sense that it’s to do with a possible endorsement of Hamas,” she said.The MEPs are still going ahead with the rest of their visit to the West Bank and east Jerusalem.Costello: Ireland supports search for peace in Palestinian territories > Column: The generosity of the Irish people makes me incredibly proud >last_img read more

The 6 key types of Irish apology

first_imgIN IRELAND, THE apology is a subtle art form.As Ronan Keating memorably said:So we’re here to help you recognise when a fellow Irish person is apologising to you. It may take one of the following key forms:1. The ‘Small Favour’ Source: ShutterstockIn which you pretend that the incident never happened, but are extra nice to the person in some way. It is important that you never acknowledge why this is.Suggestions include: cooking a favourite dinner or picking up ‘something nice’ at the shops for no reason in particular, just on a whim, don’t know why you’re asking.If interrogation continues, simply change the subject.2. The ‘Your Dad Is’ Source: ShutterstockIn which someone else simply does the apologising for you. Doesn’t have to be a dad trick this, but often is. An essential face-saver.3. The ‘Mumble’ Source: ShutterstockWhen you next meet them, awkwardly mumble something inaudible. Everyone knows what you’re trying to say. You don’t need to actually say it. GOD.4. The ‘Downplay’In which you simply tell them ‘Relax!’Basically you make like it’s all been blown out of proportion and your victim, as a reasonable person, should see this. Chances are that they’ll go along with it, to avoid ‘making a fuss’.No Irish person likes to make a fuss.5. The ’2AM Special’ Source: ShutterstockAct like nothing is wrong until you are extremely drunk and in the depths of a night out. (This can be months after the incident in question.) Then unload your feelings in one impassioned, possibly tearful outburst. When you’ve sobered up, never speak of it again.6. And in desperate situations, the ‘Run Away, Run Away’ Source: GifsoupSimply avoid the other person, forever and ever, from now on. If this means altering your entire group of friends, so be it. The main thing is to ensure you don’t have to deal with this thing.

Nokia Developers Walk Out By the Hundreds in Protest of Microsoft Deal

first_imgNo sooner than the news came down this morning that Nokia would partner with Microsoft to adopt Windows Phone 7 as the operating system of choice for the future of Nokia smartphones, the backlash from Nokia employees – most of them developers working on Symbian, Nokia’s old and floundering smartphone platform – was swift, quiet, and clear: about 1,500 of them, working out of Nokia’s office in Tampere, Finland, stood up and walked out in protest. It’s clear why these developers in particular had the strongest reaction: even though Nokia says that there will be more Symbian phones and the company isn’t abandoning the platform entirely (yet,) it’s clear that the winds have changed and as soon as Nokia’s re-org plans go into effect, a good chunk of them will lose their jobs. Nokia hasn’t announced the specifics of how their announced platform changes will change staffing and development just yet, but it’s just a matter of time. Interestingly enough, Adrian Biggins, recruiter at Google EMEA, was more than happy to take the opportunity to remind those disgruntled developers (via Twitter) that they’re hiring, and that they should send in their resumes if they’re looking for work.last_img read more

Missing schoolgirl may be alive police say

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Police believe that missing Greek Australian Lambrini Andreopoulos could be alive and well in Melbourne. The teenager, who went missing on March 25, 1978, is said to be alive and still living in the city. Police said this week that they have received new information that has led them to believe Andreopoulos is alive but has since changed her name. The teenager was 13 when she went missing more than 30 years ago, and was last seen heading to Footscray Girls’ School from her family’s home in Charles Street, Seddon. “Our information is that she may have changed her name and started a new life for herself,” Detective Senior Constable Brendan O’Mahoney told The Age. “That is totally her prerogative but we need to know that she is OK.” Senior Detective O’Mahoney has urged Andreopoulos – or those that know her – to call Crimestoppers.

297 Farmers Benefit From Weather Pattern Training

first_img Two boys die, bicycle and van collide in St. Catherine, Jamaica Related Items:jamaica, REEACH Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, April 22 (JIS): A total of 297 farmers from five parishes have been empowered with weather pattern information through a US$100,000 grant from the Jamaica Rural Economy and Ecosystems Adapting to Climate Change (Ja REEACH) Project.This was under the training component of the project, involving the Meteorological Service (Met Office), the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), and the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI). Through the information provided to the farmers, drawn from St. Catherine, Clarendon, St. Elizabeth, St. Thomas and St. Mary, they are now better able to interpret and understand weather predictions and make informed decisions regarding planting and harvesting, so as to boost productivity. They have been equipped to deal with climate factors such as maximum and minimum temperatures, low pressure and troughs, drought and flash flooding effects. They are also able to formulate responses to weather and climate forecasts and messages from the Met Office, and adjust their operations to lessen the impact of adverse climate conditions.Speaking at an Agrometeorology farmers’ forum held on Tuesday (April 21), at the Farmers’ Training Centre in Twickenham Park, St. Catherine, Manager with Ja REEACH Project, Dianne Dormer, said the training should result in improved agricultural practices to enhance crop yield.“We expect that we should see practical changes on the ground, such as water harvesting and storage…using things like barrier crops to reduce some of the insects that are driven when temperature increases, and a change in the planting cycle, and the type of crops that will be planted,” Miss Dormer noted.Treasurer of the Ebony Park Farmers’ Association in Clarendon, Michael Hutchinson, who was among farmers reporting on how they are applying the knowledge in their farming activities, said the training was extremely helpful, “especially to farmers, who depend on rainfall.”“When you can understand and know the weather pattern, you can know exactly what to plant, so it helps you in your planting,” he said.Vice President of the James Hill Production and Marketing Organization (PMO), also in Clarendon, Gloria Moore, reported that “the information provided has changed the way we plant, and the way we reap. It is very good for us; we have benefitted greatly.”Ja REEACH, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is aimed at protecting rural lives, livelihoods and ecosystems in targeted communities affected by climate change, through interventions that drive adaptation and build resilience.The project works with farmers and communities to support actions and demonstrations that combat challenges linked to the changing climate in Jamaica.

Subcommittee Chairman Appears to Favor Consolidation Plan for Exchanges Commissaries

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR After gaining support among top DOD leaders, a plan to consolidate the military’s commissary and exchange systems now may be favored by a key lawmaker responsible for personnel policy.Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.), chairman of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee, has been reviewing the report of the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission, which in January called for consolidating DOD’s three exchange services with the Defense Commissary Agency into a single Defense Resale Activity.The commission concluded the move would generate $426 million in annual savings by fiscal 2020 by combining many of the activities’ back-end office and support functions such as logistics and staffing. The extent of Heck’s support may become clear on Thursday when his subcommittee marks up its portion of the FY 2016 defense authorization bill, reported Stars and Stripes.The Pentagon, meanwhile, appears to be moving ahead with the consolidation plan at the same time it has proposed slashing funding for commissaries by $322 million in FY 2016 and by $1 billion the following year. The department’s FY 2016 budget request calls for U.S. commissaries to be operated more like a business, forcing the grocery stores to reduce customer discounts. DOD’s cost-saving reforms also would trim staff, store hours and the days stores are open.Opponents of the proposed commissary reforms — including advocates for military shoppers, and manufacturers and suppliers doing business with base stores — last week told the armed services committees that DOD’s plan “will destroy the commissary benefit” and “severely impact young families and fixed-income retirees,” according to the story.Significantly reducing the commissary benefit will eliminate tens of thousands of “much needed jobs for the military community,” according to the April 16 letter from the Coalition to Save Our Military Shopping Benefits.last_img read more

Huslia pleads to rein in burgeoning pike population

first_imgA proposal aimed at reducing the number of pike around the northern Interior village of Huslia will be considered by the Board of Fisheries when it meets next week (January 12-16) at the Alpine Lodge in Fairbanks.Download AudioPike. Photo: Alaska Department of Fish and Game.As written, the proposal would allow nets with 5 1/2-inch mesh to be set completely across Racetrack Slough, just upriver from Huslia, as well as sloughs connected to the Huslia River.  The nets would have to be removed by June 15, before the arrival of salmon to the area.Blocking off sloughs in the early summer is a traditional technique for catching large numbers of pike, according to the proposal’s sponsor, Jack Wholecheese from Huslia. But the practice has been illegal since the introduction of fishing regulations in the area during the 1950s.Wholecheese says that pike are an important subsistence resource for Huslia, because relatively few salmon run up the Koyukuk River compared to the Yukon. But recently the pike population has grown so large that the voracious predators are making a noticeable dent in the populations of other important species.“A long time ago, they used to have more control over the big pike that eat all of our younger fish, and whitefish and ducks and muskrats and everything. We see a lot of those younger whitefish or even sheefish and lush in the stomachs of these pikes. Actually they are the barracuda of the Koyukuk River.”Fish and Game opposes the idea of entirely blocking sloughs to target pike.  According to Yukon River Fall Season Manager Jeff Estensen, the Department is concerned about the unintended harvest of fish other than pike.“When you are obstructing the whole, entire waterway, then you are in essence blocking the passage of other species such as grayling, whitefish, suckers or whatever. And even though you may be using a specific mesh size to target pike, which the proponent is suggesting in this [proposal], any kind of net is going to catch fish regardless if you want to or not.”Current regulations for the Yukon Area prevent nets from stretching more than halfway across a waterway.Huslia is in the middle of the Koyukuk National Wildlife Refuge, and federal managers have ultimate authority over fishing regulations within the refuge. The federal Office of Subsistence Management submitted a comment in support of the proposal, though OSM recommends that a portion of a slough should be left open for navigation and some fish passage, and that large-scale pike fishing with gillnets require a permit.The Middle Yukon Fish and Game Advisory Committee also recommends that the Board of Fish adopt the proposal with certain amendments. The Fairbanks Advisory Committee is on record against the proposal.last_img read more

wrote in a statement A Year in Space followed Kelly and Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko on their record-breaking stay aboard the International Space Stationpart of an ambitious experiment to determine if humanity’s grand dreams of traveling to Mars can ever be achieved Write to Kate Samuelson at katesamuelson@timecomA perception has gained ground that the prime minister has made a mess of the economy and under his stewardship we are hurtling towards doom Perceptions win elections Does this mean it is curtains for BJP in 2019 Or does Narendra Modi have another game up his sleeve First let us look at the narrative It is difficult to pinpoint the exact moment when it started building up but a close estimate would be publishing of figures that India grew at a measly 57 percent in the quarter ending June 2017 The nascent narrative was boosted by doses of withering criticism of government’s policies from some of its own senior leaders File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi PIB The perception was apparently ‘certified’ when the prime minister launched a passionate defence of the government’s economic track record and policies Some commentators including yours truly have contradicted the claims arguing that it is a little flippant to take Modi’s defence as a tacit admission of guilt Be that as it may the narrative has infused hope into previously hopeless Opposition ranks Modi’s detractors have suddenly rediscovered their voice They are suggesting that this economic disaster is caused by the prime minister’s hubris since he is too insular to listen to anyone They are also saying that it is just a matter of time before the palpable anger among voters is reflected into the ballot box All this could be true If indeed the economic slowdown is chronic and not transitory then it is bad news for India and good news for the Opposition All they need to do is to carry the message home that Modi has botched up and let the government stew in its juices Cries of eternal economic damnation however are unsupported by facts There is no doubt that there is a slowdown Not just the indicators or institutions who are suggesting it even the prime minister’s own council of economists are in agreement The key contention therefore isn’t whether there is a slowdown but whether it is transitory in nature with the short-term shock in both demand and supply giving way to a stable correction in indices Both the IMF and World Bank which have lowered India’s GDP growth forecast appear optimistic They posit that Modi has initiated deep structural changes in the economy and the reform process may soon begin to show results "The reform process has been significant We think that certainly in the medium and long term the growth will reflect the seriousness of Prime Minister Modi’s government in making those reforms" World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim recently told reporters in Washington He added that GST "would be very good for Indian growth but for now the sense is that companies are waiting until that passes before really making investment and taking action So our sense is that this (slowdown in growth) is temporary" according to news agency PTI The IMF while noting that India has been a bit of an outlier among emerging markets in reflecting a relative slowdown observed that the tax reform by the Modi government is "among several key structural reforms under implementation that are expected to help push growth above 8 percent in the medium term" according to a report Recent indicators reinforce the possibility India’s factory output rose to a nine-month high of 43 percent in August while retail inflation remained under control at 328 percent in September according to data released by Central Statistics Office (CSO) This is a substantive jump in Index of Industrial Production (IIP) from the 09 percent in July the first month after GST was rolled out in a midnight session on 30 June The August 2017 growth in industrial output appears to be a broad-based one "led by all three sectors (mining manufacturing and electricity) and five of the six use-based industries (except infrastructure/construction goods)" according to a report in The Hindu Business Line The newspaper also notes that "13 of the 23 sub-sectors of manufacturing with a weight of 27 per cent in the IIP recorded a contraction" These are however indicators And data is open to interpretation An uptick in the economy may be underway but that doesn’t sufficiently dispel the notion that the economy is under siege It is undeniable that the trader community is seething A forced formalisation of the economy and implementation woes of currency ban and GST have turned BJP’s core support base into unrelenting sceptics Social media where once it was difficult to find a voice a critical of Modi is now awash with such criticisms The salaried middle-class feels overtaxed unattended and restive The SME sector is gasping for breath Private investment is down and jobs are nonexistent Little wonder that Opposition sees a chink in Modi’s armour and Rahul Gandhi has spent the better part of his Gujarat campaign ripping apart the prime minister’s policies and bad-mouthing big businesses The section of media which could never reconcile with Modi’s ascension now detects a palpable "change in mood" (that intractable Hindi word mahaul is more accurate) This is where Modi’s detractors underestimate his political acumen If the Opposition has a narrative so does Modi And it is an equally powerful one albeit almost totally under the media radar We see small anecdotal references every now and then For instance columnist Neerja Chowdhury gives an account of a domestic help in a recent The Economic Times piece She writes: "A maid living in a Mumbai slum and working in a middle-class home summed up the situation last week Lamenting the rise in the price of gas cylinders vegetables and a host of other items she talked about life becoming increasingly difficult Who would she vote for next time "Modi" she replied Why "Because he has done good for the poor" What good "My brother and sister and several adivasis in our village have got gas cylinders And he plans to do more good for the poor" Interestingly the column goes on to talk about the "other end of the spectrum" where an upper-middle-class housewife is disillusioned with Modi’s "autocratic" ways and may opt for NOTA this time We hear incessantly about the latter point of view and very little about the former This is because mainstream and/or social media are almost exclusively urban middle-class domains It is a fact that Modi has done next to nothing for the middle class except a token reduction in fuel cess or an assurance to traders that government will turn a blind eye to past avoidance of taxes Their anger at being left high and dry has added to the perception (mahaul) that Modi is "doing nothing" It is difficult to believe that the prime minister is insular to this frustration However he is unlikely to go beyond a point in addressing that frustration This is because Modi believes that the narrative for 2019 won’t be the same as 2014 If the earlier one was about ‘hope’ and achhe din flowing from UPA’s corruption and policy paralysis the 2019 story will be about the ‘poor’ There could be many reasons behind this shift in Modi’s strategy We will try to see how this is working out The Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls give us a fair indication of how the media is practically clueless about the sectors that it doesn’t represent There is substantive goodwill for Modi among rural women due to the significant success of Ujjwala scheme Reports say that it has surpassed its target "by a third this year" and the government is well on its way to allot five crore free connections to rural women by 2019 The salutary effect of successful implementation of such a scheme targeted at a voiceless section of the populace is not easily quantifiable by numbers We find some indications of the goodwill in BJP’s electoral fortune in Uttar Pradesh and Modi recently took it to the next level by targeting last-mile implementation of free electricity connection to over 40 million "willing" households by December 2018 at a cost of Rs 16320 crore The ‘saubhagya’ scheme may result in electoral saubhagya for BJP because like fuel electricity is a basic need that has a cascading effect in uplifting the fortunes of the poor The scheme reports The Indian Express will also make for "solar power packs of 200 to 300 watt-peak (Wp) along with battery bank for un-electrified households located in remote and inaccessible areas This solar pack will include five LED lights one DC fan and one DC power plug" It is also easy to overlook the government’s stunning success in financial inclusion of the poor through opening of bank accounts The Jan Dhan account forms the backbone of JAM (Jan Dhan Mobile Aadhaar) trinity and as The Hindu Business Line notes in a recent report includes total balance of "Rs 65697 crore as on August 9 2017 The rural tilt of the scheme comes across in the fact that 1761 crore beneficiaries out of a total of 2948 crore account-holders hail from rural and semi-urban branches" A total of 2270 crore RuPay cards have so far been issued to account-holders according to the newspaper Add to these the e-auction of mandis the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana for increasing the acreage of irrigation crop insurance program soil and testing services and the government’s plan slowly comes into focus Modi isn’t shying away from sending across the message either "From Jan Dhan Yojana to Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to Ujjawala to Mudra to Start-UP India to Standup India to Ujala you will only see the welfare of poor in them Who had thought that a government will come which will give free bank accounts to 30 crore poor people Who had thought that a government will come which will provide insurance to the poor at Rs 1 per month and Rs 90 paise premium and give loans without bank guarantee to the poor" Modi said recently during the launch of rural electrification scheme In sum though the economy is passing through a difficult phase Modi won’t be an unduly worried man He believes he has done enough to hedge against middle-class anger As for the Opposition narrative it will be interesting to see how it holds up Fitch was wanted on outstanding warrants.
