TTV Dhinakaran for,instance promised to build 57000 houses if he was elected while the Panneerselvam camp said it will develop a world-class fish market Instead Rs 10000 for a vote that translated to a sum of Rs 50000 for a family of five meant some loans could be paid off or some fancy white goods could be bought How does it usually work Random chats with voters suggest that when voters take money from all candidates in most cases they are under pressure to vote for the highest bidder There is the fear factor as well because those who have money power have muscle power as well But some others insist bribing is not akin to match-fixing They claim that inside the privacy of the EVM booth they vote for whoever they think is good for the constituency Follow your conscience to wipe away the guilt of accepting a bribe is the mantra From the point of the view of the candidate what it means is that he is no longer appealing to the wisdom of a voter "I am buying you out” is the tone and tenor Not that it means it is a contract forever This round of bribing came with an expiry date of 12 April Now that the elections have been rescinded and may be held after a few months money will have to be shelled out again And the amount given this time becomes the benchmark which the parties will be expected to better the next time round Inflation-adjusted In the context of the circumstances in which the RK Nagar byelection was called off it seems rather ironic that G67 an independent group backed by Karti Chidambaram started a campaign in RK Nagar asking people to take an oath that they will not accept bribes for votes Because for all practical purposes RK Nagar has put the Thirumangalam formula to shade In 2009 when there was a byelection in Thirumangalam constituency in Madurai voters were bribed with money given along with morning newspapers and the then ruling DMK emerged victorious The bribes are a mockery of the Election Commission rules that cap the spending by a candidate at Rs 28 lakh for an assembly election Here in RK Nagar you have a `Bribe Fund’ of Rs 8965 crore set up by one party alone if the documents seized by the Income Tax sleuths are anything to go by What an election of this kind does is to ensure the voters can never question the MLA With the poll converted into a monetary deal it is akin to a seedy illegal contract marriage If the RK Nagar election had gone through the divorce between the voters and the winning candidate would have happened by the evening of 15 April when the results were to be announced What the massive attempt at bribing also has exposed is the complete failure of demonetisation to curb black money At a time when the common man finds it difficult to locate ATMs disbursing cash the fact that these political parties in Tamil Nadu are flush with cash indicates a nexus between bank officials and corrupt netas One of the documents reportedly prepared by the accountant in Health minister C Vijayabhasker officeshows the huge amounts that have flown into and out of the minister’s account It is obvious none of this goes into a bank account and get digitally traced With the atmosphere "seriously vitiated” the Election Commission had no option but to rescind the election But it can be sure it will be the same muck once the new election dates are announced The candidates know they won’t even be debarred from contesting elections What the EC needs is a TN Seshan or a JM Lyngdoh kind of approach a more visible policing that cracks the whip on erring politicians The fear of God and a tough CEC needs to be put into politicians and the voters at large Let the EC start with RK Nagar Written by Jay Mazoomdaar | New Delhi | Updated: August 18 2016 7:32 pm Machli the tigress in Ranthambore National Park (Source: Tigerwalah/Facebook) Top News Machli alias T16 alias the Lady of the Lake The tiger legend is dead Finally The news has shocked tiger lovers across the globe But to many it has also come as a relief Because it also put an end to the pathetic spectacle of an amazing wild tiger being reduced to a living relic Without the tethered baits the forest department provided her for the last seven years Machli would have long been dead There was a reason however that the majority in the wildlife fraternity were desperate not to lose her As tigers disappeared from Rajasthan with poachers striking at will in the first half of the last decade the very sight of Machli — strolling stalking ambushing still raising more cubs or just minding her own business — was one of the few reassuring constants The once reigning queen of the three majestic lakes beneath the craggy fort at the heart of Ranthambore Machli was indeed a very special cat The envy of every single mother she raised nine cubs in four litters between 2000 and 2008 Every day hundreds of tourists scoured the forest to seek her out Every year thousands of pilgrims walked all over her territory on their way to Ranthambore’s Ganesh temple The fiercely protective mother always held her nerve Also Read |Machli the Ranthambore tigress who died today had fought 14-foot-long crocodile Machli’s courage and determination make her a remarkable survivor She repeatedly took on deadly marsh crocodiles bigger than herself and overcame them Even after those mortal combats cost her two canines she continued to hunt successfully and went on to raise five cubs in two litters WATCH VIDEO As her legend grew Machli became the biggest and the best advertisement for tiger conservation In 2009 when she was awarded for lifetime achievement it was rather conservatively estimated that she had generated $10 million for the local economy through tourism Millions of tourists on Machli pilgrimages have visited Ranthambhore since But that was not her biggest miracle Almost single-handedly Machli steered India’s fragile westernmost population of tigers through an ominous decade Her bloodline has produced at least 50 tigers in Ranthambhore including her own nine cubs from three males and two other females sent to repopulate Sariska Against all odds Machli raised her fourth litter at the ripe age of 11 and without two canines Eight years on all Machli had was half a canine a little patch of her once vast territory and some of her indomitable spirit While she still made occasional kills the forest department fed her under public glare Machli’s last years added to her legend but she had long stopped serving any purpose in nature’s scheme of things which does not allow an old unproductive individual to hang on and waste finite resources Yet we kept Machli alive because it gave us an emotional and moral high Machli’s life taught us that given an opportunity a single cat can turn a wild population around Her death should make us realise that by not letting her go we probably made it a little more difficult for her successors to do a Machli Now that the legend is dead young tigresses will follow in her pug marks and hopefully rival her many feats If they succeed let’s vow not to do a Machli on them once they are done being wild tigers For all the latest Opinion News download
