electoral comeback in state politics as a legislator in the 23 August Assembly bypoll The coastal state will witness two bypolls on Wednesday While in Valpoi health minister and Bharatiya Janata Party nominee Vishwajit Rane takes on Roy Naik son of Congress MLA Ravi Naik it is the battle for the capital constituency — featuring Parrikar a former defence minister and also the incumbent chief minister and Girish Chodankar the son of a vegetable vendor currently an AICC official with virtually no electoral pedigree — which has stolen the spotlight File image of Manohar Parrikar PTI While Parrikar a five-time Panaji legislator is the favourite his campaign appears to lack his characteristic style and individual charisma and the sudden appearance of the entire Cabinet on the campaign trail over the last few days as well as the unprecedented presence of both his sons Utpal and Abhijat in campaign events does indicate an element of anxiety in the Parrikar camp Also the indirect overtures made by Parrikar to Monserrate a former legislator from an adjoining constituency whose wife is a Congress legislator also appears to point to tension in the BJP camp One of Goa’s most controversial lawmakers Monserrate was booked for raping a minor girl after spiking her drink in 2016 He has also been accused of forging a school certificate and booked for crimes ranging from extortion to assault Monserrate who has party-hopped nearly half a dozen times in the last decade-and-half joined the ruling alliance party Goa Forward a few weeks before the bypoll after initially hinting that he would contest against Parrikar "In fact I had issued clear instructions to my workers to extend their support to Manohar Parrikar Parrikar is a man of stature and doesn’t need anybody’s support to campaign" Monserrate said Parrikar as opposition leader in 2011 had staged a walkout from the state Assembly after Monserrate a legislator then was detained at the Mumbai airport by customs authorities for allegedly carrying excess foreign exchange Accusing the then Congress-led coalition government of being a government "of smugglers for smugglers by smugglers" for shielding Monserrate he had said: "He could be a conduit for parking money from ministers and politicians abroad" With a day to go for polls and Monserrate’s support crucial Parrikar’s demeanour towards him is a changed one Asked to comment on Monserrate’s joining his coalition ally Goa Forward Parrikar said in an earlier interview: "I did not tell him anything It is his decision Possibly he must have realised that Congress is trying to use him as a pawn against me He has a good relationship with Goa Forward from the beginning He is an ally" Monserrate controls the Panaji municipal authority and has been both an ally and a thorn-in-the-flesh for Parrikar over the last decade and more Even in the current circumstances while Monserrate has made a public statement expressing support to Parrikar the BJP leadership says it is not willing to take any chances "He has always been temperamental but eventually he has backed Bhai (Parrikar) in some poll campaigns We are working hard to make sure we can do without his vote bank If he eventually puts his weight behind us the margin of victory will be a huge one" a senior BJP leader told IANS on the condition of anonymity Girish Chodankar on the other hand was a last-minute choice put forward by the Congress after its efforts to field a consensus candidate failed twice Chodankar who hails from Margao town located 35 kilometres from Panaji says he is too small a political personality to take on a big leader like Parrikar but adds a rider "It is not me but the people of Panaji who will defeat Parrikar for the 23 years of mismanagement U-turns lack of facilities and now pandering to the casino lobby" Chodankar told IANS The bypolls were necessitated after Panaji’s BJP MLA Sidharth Kuncalienker resigned in order to facilitate Parrikar’s entry to the state legislative assembly following his return to Goa from the Centre In Valpoi the cause for the bypoll is the resignation of sitting Congress MLA Vishwajit Rane who quit the party after the results were announced in March 2017 before joining the BJP-led coalition government as health minister Jammu: Amid the spurt in ceasefire violations by Pakistan Indian Army Chief

India Japan and Australia but the revival of the Asian “Quad” must overcome lingering mistrust in New Delhi towards its allies that hampers genuine military cooperation Joint naval drills have been at the heart of a relationship that analysts widely see as a move to counterbalance China’s rising power by binding the region’s leading democracies more closely together But while the navies of the United States Japan and Australia can easily operate together —based on common US-designed combat systems and data links —India is the outlier An E-2D Hawkeye plane approaches to the US aircraft carrier John C Stennis during joint military exercise called Malabar with the United States Japan and India participating off Japan’s southernmost island of Okinawa Japan in June 2016 Reuters Not only are most of its ships and warplanes Russian-made its government and military remain deeply reluctant to share data and open up sensitive military communications systems The United States has carried out more naval exercises with India than any other nation But naval sources and experts say these are more about “cultural familiarisation” than drills for joint combat Because India will not sign an agreement on sharing data naval exercises are conducted through voice and text commands with rudimentary SMS-style data exchange Indian and Japanese military sources said “Think of it as directing your friend to your house in the 1980s Your left may be his right neither of you have situational awareness” said Abhijit Iyer-Mitra a senior fellow at New Delhi’s Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies who has tracked the military exercises “What the Americans want is 2017 —drop a pin on Google maps and hit share You know where your friend is and he knows where your house is and how to get to it” The Indian defence ministry did not respond to a request for a comment Annual drills The so-called Quad to discuss and cooperate on security emerged briefly as an initiative a decade ago —much to the annoyance of China —and was revived recently with an officials-level meeting this month on the sidelines of a regional gathering in Manila The Trump administration has talked up cooperation with India as part of efforts for a “free open and thriving Indo-Pacific” Describing the Indian and Pacific Oceans as a “single strategic arena” US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson described India and the United States as regional “bookends” “In concrete terms it will lead to great co-ordination between the Indian Japanese and American militaries including maritime domain awareness anti-submarine warfare amphibious warfare and humanitarian assistance disaster relief and search and rescue” he said To be sure India and the United States have steadily been bringing more powerful ships into their annual Malabar drills that have been expanded to include Japan in recent years This year the USS Nimitz carrier group was deployed for the manoeuvres off India’s eastern coast along with an aircraft carrier from India and a helicopter carrier from Japan F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets and E-2D Hawkeye plane are seen on the US aircraft carrier John C Stennis during joint military exercise called Malabar with the United States Japan and India participating off Japan’s southernmost island of Okinawa Japan in June 2016 Reuters But a Japanese Maritime Self Defence Forces official said when Japan conducts drills with the Indian Navy communication is done mostly through voice transmission There is no satellite link that would allow the two navies to access information and share monitor displays in on-board command centres Communication is usually the most difficult aspect of any joint drill he said Building blocks The exercises are meant to lay the ground for joint patrols that the US eventually wants to conduct with India and its allies across the Indian Ocean and the Pacific US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Logan a Pentagon spokesman said better interoperability was a goal of the exercises and noted that India’s enhanced role as a major US defence partner would help boost the relationship “The designation of India as a major defence partner is significant and is intended to elevate defence trade and technology sharing with India to a level commensurate with that of our closest allies and partners” he said “As this relationship matures so will the level of interoperability” Last year India signed a military logistics pact with the United States after a decade of wrangling but two other agreements are stuck The United States says the Communication and Information Security Memorandum of Agreement (CISMOA) would allow it to supply India with encrypted communications equipment and systems The Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement is the other pact that would set a framework through which the United States could share sensitive data to aid targeting and navigation with India India is concerned that agreeing to the CISMOA would open up its military communications to the United States and even allow it to listen in on operations where Indian and US interests may not coincide —such as against arch-rival Pakistan military officials in New Delhi say Radars turned off Captain Gurpreet Khurana executive director at the government-funded National Maritime Foundation said India’s underlying concern was having its autonomy constrained by binding its military into US codes and operating procedures Once the Americans proposed a portable “suitcase” communications system called the CENTRIXS which could transmit full situational awareness data to Indian ships while the two navies practised together India refused to allow it to be plugged in for the duration of the exercise citing operational security according to an Indian source briefed on the planning of the exercises Even the joint air exercises that the two countries are conducting as a follow-on to Malabar are severely restricted the source said India sends its Russian-acquired Sukhoi jets to the drills but their radars and jammers are turned off David Shear who served as Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asia under President Barack Obama said US forces particularly the Navy were well aware of the interoperability constraints to interacting with India “They understand what the obstacles are and that this is going to be a long-term project” he said

Photos by Dilip Kagda Related News The SHIV SENA-controlled Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has thrown a spanner in party president Uddhav Thackeray’s plan to build a new home for his family in Bandra While the Thackerays had sought permission to utilise transferable development rights (TDR) for additional construction in the new building the civic body’s building proposals department is learnt to have turned down the proposal Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis may now hold the key to completion of Thackeray’s home project with sources confirming the matter has been referred to the urban development (UD) department led by him Ties between the Shiv Sena and the BJP have been frosty in recent times In October 2016 Uddhav Thackeray and wife Rashmi acquired a 5200 square feet property right across their current residential address Matoshree in Bandra East’s Kalanagar Cooperative Housing Society While the Thackerays plan to construct an eight-storey building with a basement stilt and seven upper floors the construction of the upper floors has run into rough weather with the civic administration declining the permission for loading TDR on the property The TDR is a development tool that allows land developers additional construction rights over and above the permissible floor space level in redevelopment projects It is usually generated when a developer or a land owner surrenders land reserved for public amenities in the form of buildable space or rehouses slum-dwellers or project-affected people free of cost The generated TDR can be traded privately for utilisation on another plot Official papers show that the Thackerays had in May this year already purchased TDR worth 2617 sq ft from a slum developer in Lower Parel But there is now uncertainty on whether this can be utilised to build the extra floors for Thackeray’s new home according to the sources The proposal submitted by the Thackerays to the BMC shows they have plans to build two triplex apartments in the new building Considering the fact that TDR utilisation would be permitted on the property the Thackerays have planned to construct up to 10500 sq ft in all The family has roped in noted architecture firm Talati and Panthaky Associated Private Limited to design the building While the construction work had begun last November and has already progressed till the fifth floor the building proposals department has now ruled that the “utilisation of the TDR was not permissible on the plot” The department is going by the civic administration’s new guidelines issued on August 23 2017 regarding the utilisation of TDR The guidelines had followed a notification issued by the UD department on November 16 2016 linking the utilisation of the TDR to the width of the road in front of the plots concerned The notification restricts the loading of TDR on plots abutting an existing road that is at least 9 metre wide and is marked under the relevant provisions of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act A circular issued by Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta on August 23 2017 disallowed utilisation of TDR on plots having access or fronting from private layout roads internal roads or the ones having right of way from a private access among others In other words plots have to be directly accessible from a public street or a municipal road to avail the additional construction right The trouble for the Thackeray family is that their plot is served by a 915-metre-wide internal road planned within the private layout of the Kalanagar society The building proposals department has declined utilisation of the TDR ruling that this can neither be termed a public street nor a municipal road On September 16 however Ajoy Mehta wrote to Principal Secretary (UD-1) Dr Nitin Kareer seeking clarification on whether TDR could be permitted on such private roads too “The municipal corporation is receiving proposals for the utilisation of TDR for development/redevelopment of buildings abutting/fronting existing layout roads private roads right of ways existing non municipal roads and pre-merger layout roads among others In view of the above the Principal Secretary (Urban Development-1) is requested to issue a clarification regarding allowing the utilisation of TDR on roads other than municipal roads/public roads” the letter reads Incidentally Fadnavis has already stepped in to help the Thackerays’ new construction once In January 2016 Fadnavis had directed authorities at the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority which he heads to allow “emergency” access to the plot from the 45-metre-wide Bandra Kurla Complex The MMRDA later allowed the Thackerays to use a 6-m-wide temporary access to the BKC road Papers show the architects for the Thackerays had sought access to an “emergency exit” on grounds that Matoshree was located in the high security zone Sources said a couple of Mumbai-based BJP MLAs — Parag Alavani and Yogesh Sagar — too had approached the CMO demanding revision of the civic guidelines The Practicing Engineers Town Planners and Architects Association (PEATA) has also written to the civic body questioning the “insistence on the status of the road” for TDR Senior building proposal department engineers are however wary of instances of FSI imbalance if this is withdrawn entirely Despite attempts the Thackerays remained unavailable for comment Matoshree 20 Uddhav Thackeray’s new house is being constructed on a plot owned by the Kalanagar Cooperative Housing Society Documents show that it had been originally leased to an artist Kattingeri Krishna Hebbar The plot was transferred to Hebbar’s wife Susheela upon his death in 1996 and later came their children Rekha Rao Rajani Prasanna and Ranna Hebbar following Susheela’s death in 2006 In 2007 the three entered into a development rights agreement with Malad-based building firm Planatium Infrastructure Private Limited wherein they divested their stakes in the property for an agreed sum While the firm initially applied for permission to construct a building on the property the Thackerays later took it over The Kalanagar CHS has also issued the Thackeray an
