Arsenal boss Emery says Holding could face Man Utdby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery says Rob Holding could be ready to face Manchester United tomorrow night.Holding missed the last six months of last season after a cruciate ligament injury in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in December. Emery said, “After eight or nine months out, it’s a long time, and to recover he needs first to take it bit by bit, to take confidence, to get back to the performance levels we demand.“On Tuesday (in their Carabao Cup defeat of Nottingham Forest), I thought, ‘Wow! He’s coming, Rob Holding’. I don’t know if he is going to start at Old Trafford, but I want from him his spirit, his behaviour and commitment.“He really feels Arsenal Football Club and I want players like him in the dressing room. Last year, Rob started training and playing with us and he progressed a lot.“When he had his injury at Old Trafford, it was maybe at the best moment in his progress.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Eden Hazard has scored his 100th goal for Chelsea, finding the net in Wednesday’s Premier League meeting with Watford.After going scoreless against Leicester, Hazard struck just before half-time at Vicarage Road to send the Blues ahead. Mateo Kovacic picked up a loose ball in midfield and knocked through to the forward, who rounded Ben Foster and finished with ease to mark his century.

Chelsea’s advantage proved short-lived, however, as Roberto Pereyra hit back almost instantly to level matters prior to the break.But Hazard popped up in the second half to restore the lead, netting a penalty to make it 2-1 on the night and 101 for Chelsea’s star.The Belgian remains 10th on the all-time list of the Blues’ top scorers, with Frank Lampard out in front with 211, nine ahead of Bobby Tambling.Of Hazard’s 101 goals for the club, 79 of them have come in the Premier League, with eight having been scored in the Champions League, seven in the League Cup, five in the FA Cup and one in both the Europa League and UEFA Super Cup.Bournemouth, Newcastle and West Brom are Hazard’s favourite opponents in terms the opposition he has the best goalscoring record again during his time at Stamford Bridge, with seven having arrived against each of those sides.Cesc Fabregas is the Chelsea team-mate with the most assists for Hazard – the Spaniard having set-up the forward seven times during his time with the club.Hazard will climb to ninth in the standings of the Blues’ all-time leading scorers if and when he scores 109 for the club, with George Hilsdon having netted 108 during his spell as a Chelsea player in the early 1900s.The former Lille man joined Chelsea back in 2012, and has made a total of 322 appearances for the Blues across all competitions.There has been speculation over his future at the club, however, with a move to Real Madrid having long been mooted as a possibility, with the Belgian himself having admitted his desire to play for the Liga giants .He has, however, also suggested that he could remain at Stamford Bridge for the long-term, with Maurizio Sarri’s side keen to tie the 27-year-old down to a new deal – his current contract expires in June 2020.Hazard has been deployed in a false nine position by Sarri in recent times and has now scored in three of his last four games for the club.

MONTREAL – A pro-gun lobby held a rally at a sugar shack west of Quebec City on Saturday after it was forced to backtrack on a plan to have the event at a memorial site for the 14 women who were killed at Ecole polytechnique in 1989.The group posted on its Facebook page Saturday afternoon to say the event was was running smoothly.Originally, the group had wanted to stage the event at Montreal’s Place du 6 decembre.That idea was quickly and roundly blasted by politicians of all stripes, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante.Guy Morin, president of the pro-gun lobby, has said that the group did not realize the plan would generate such widespread denunciation.Wednesday will be the 28th anniversary of the Polytechnique massacre.
VANCOUVER — The wandering river otter with a taste for decorative and valuable koi carp has managed to elude a trap set Tuesday in hopes of removing it from a classical Chinese garden in Vancouver.Officials with the Vancouver Park Board baited the humane trap with chicken and smeared a mat with fish oil to entice the otter in an effort to relocate the adventurous mammal to a more appropriate home in Stanley Park, about three kilometres away.But a park board spokeswoman says the trap was empty Wednesday.She says there’s still no solution to the mystery of how the otter found the tranquil ponds within the walled Sun Yat-Sen Classical Garden at the edge of the city’s Chinatown.The otter has had no trouble chasing down some of the large, and very old koi that live in the garden’s ponds, and is blamed for eating about five or six of them.While they try to catch the otter, park board and Vancouver Aquarium staff are also making plans to remove the roughly 11 large koi still remaining in the ponds.The Canadian Press
[L to R] Caitlin Potts, Ashley Simpson, Deanna Wertz, Nicole Bell and Traci GenereauxKathleen Martens APTN News A father desperate to find his missing daughter raised enough money to buy drones and has sent them to a First Nation group coordinating searches and candlelight vigils near where the RCMP are investigating.John Simpson has shipped two of four drones to Salmon Arm, B.C., where police have recently found human remains on a rural property.“The more awareness I can bring to the situation at hand the better it’s going to be,” said Simpson, whose daughter Ashley disappeared from the area in April 2016.“This waiting around. It’s really painstaking. I feel bad for the other four families that are involved. It’s horrendous.”Ashley Simpson is one of five women to vanish from the area in the past 19 months.Her father has twice visited the community to look for her. And that’s when he says he thought of the drones.“It’s wet, it’s rocky. One woman fell and hurt herself. It’s tough terrain and there’s been flooding. I thought, ‘How else can we do this and keep people safe?’” he said from his home in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont.RCMP have told some of the five missing women’s families their week-long search of the farm is not linked to the disappearances.“We can appreciate the families that are affected by ongoing missing persons investigations and are aware of them being impacted by what’s going on here,” said RCMP spokesman Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.But Simpson said it’s pretty tough to ask loved ones to give up hope.“We are sitting on pins and needles here,” he said.John said Ashley was 31 when she disappeared after an argument with her boyfriend. He said her family has held two birthday barbecues for her and raised money that he used to buy four drones.She is one of four daughters.“She would be 33 this November. We will have a party for her, with all her friends and stuff,” he said.Ashley’s neighbour, Deanna Wertz, also vanished from the same area three months later.The 47-year-old woman had gone out for a walk in the rural area, 92 kilometres from Kelowna.“Her home was very close to the search site,” said her sister, Dawn, in an email to APTN. “And no she was never ever in the sex industry. She was a beautiful strong and active woman, with a family that loves and misses her.“A family that hasn’t gone a day in over a year that has imagined multiple horrible scenarios for what could (have) happened to her. When she disappeared it was like a UFO plucked her up. Gone without her basic belongings.”The sex industry has come up because one of the victims allegedly worked as an escort in the area.And a man who lived at the property under investigation, police said, was charged with allegedly threatening a woman with a gun he met on a website for escorts.He remained in custody Thursday.The missing women of the north Okanagan-Shuswap are Simpson; Wertz; Caitlin Potts, 27, who was last seen February 2016, Traci Genereaux, 18, who disappeared from Vernon in May, and Nicole Bell, 31, of Malakwa.Potts and Wertz have been identified as Indigenous.The RCMP said Wednesday they would be at the 24-acre property for a while, where witnesses said they could see heavy digging equipment at work.John Simpson said police told him to go home the last time he was there.“Police accused us of interfering in the investigation. Telling me to go home, saying I’m stepping on toes.”The Catcheway family of Manitoba understands that frustration. They have been searching for 18-year-old Jennifer Catcheway in a large rural area west of Winnipeg for nine years.“It is definitely long, hard, lonely work,” said Willie Starr, Jennifer’s older brother. “I worry about my parents when they’re out searching: walking through swamps, walking alongside water snakes.”Starr loves the idea of a drone and its camera flying over fields, lakes and bush.He said he considered getting one a while ago and kind of forgot about it.“You can cover more ground with those,” he said.Drones with infra-red cameras to detect objects that give off heat are being used in some search and rescue situations, said Trevor Lyons, owner of Blue Crow Aerials in Winnipeg. But he said drones have their challenges too.“You can do a couple of acres, then have to change batteries – even more often when gets cold,” he said. “It would be challenging and frustrating for someone especially if under duress and don’t know all the rules, especially in northern communities. They all have an airport and you can’t operate a drone within nine kilometres without permission from Nav Canada.”There are also rules around insurance and privacy.Still, Simpson says he kept two drones in Ontario to help with potential searches there. He also wants to help arrange groups of volunteer drone operators to call in when needed.“I plan to stick with this issue and raise awareness in Canada about missing women,” he firstname.lastname@example.org
Casablanca- A thirty-year young man on Monday was fatally struck by the tramway in Casablanca, according to Maghreb Arab Press. The young man was hit while trying to cross the tram platform without paying attention to the imminent arrival of the train and without going through the crosswalk.The elements of civil protection rushed to the scene of the accident. It took them nearly thirty minutes to remove the body of the victim under the wheels of the train, causing a disruption of traffic, according to the same source. This is the first fatal collision that occurs since the beginning of the year. A motorcyclist and a pedestrian were killed in two similar accidents last August.© Morocco World News.

World Wide Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee has said the impact of fake news is increasingly concerning, as he unveiled plans to tackle “unethical” political advertising and the harvesting of data.The British computer scientist said, exactly 28 years after his invention, the three new trends have become alarming in the last 12 months.In an open letter published on Sunday, Sir Tim, 61, said misuse of data has created a “chilling effect on free speech” and warned of “internet blind spots” that are corrupting democracy.One problem, he wrote, is that most people find their news and information through a “handful” of social media sites and search engines, which are paid whenever someone clicks a link. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Oxford-educated Sir Tim, who submitted his original proposal for the web on March 12 1989, urged people to call for greater protection laws and that Google and Facebook increase their efforts to tackle fake news.The “internet blind spot” in political campaigning must be closed while alternative revenue streams must be explored so data is not sold so indiscriminately, he said.He plans for the Web Foundation, which he founded in 2009, to work on the issues in a five-year strategy. Sir Tim also criticised politicians for targeting voters using sophisticated algorithms to tailor messages to ones they will approve of.”Targeted advertising allows a campaign to say completely different, possibly conflicting things to different groups. Is that democratic?” he said. “The net result is that these sites show us content they think we’ll click on – meaning that misinformation, or fake news, which is surprising, shocking, or designed to appeal to our biases, can spread like wildfire,” he added.”And through the use of data science and armies of bots, those with bad intentions can game the system to spread misinformation for financial or political gain.”Companies and governments are using widespread data collection to “trample on our rights”, leading to bloggers being arrested and killed by repressive regimes, Sir Tim said.”But even in countries where we believe governments have citizens’ best interests at heart, watching everyone all the time is simply going too far,” he wrote.”It creates a chilling effect on free speech and stops the web from being used as a space to explore important topics, such as sensitive health issues, sexuality or religion.” Fake news, which is surprising, shocking, or designed to appeal to our biases, can spread like wildfireSir Tim Berners-Lee

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The City of Stonnington decided on Monday to uphold existing parking arrangements opposite the Greek Orthodox Church at St Catherine’s in Malvern. With eight Councillors voting against and only one voting in favour the proposal for establishing a permit zone on the east side of Epping St on Saturdays and Sundays between 9 am to 6 pm, the proposal was defeated. The mobilisation of Greek community at Monday’s meeting was impressive.More than 1500 people flocking the City Hall, according to some estimates. The parish priest Reverend Andreas Papadimitropoulos was elated with the development and expressed his gratitute to all the Greek people who supported the parish of St Catherine’s.“I want to thank the Greek community for all their support as well as the Mayor of Stonnington and the other Councillors,” he said to Neos Kosmos. The Mayor of Stonnington noted that “it was the right decision for the community as a whole.” The issue of parking problems was raised when a petition signed by 29 local residents was lodged with the council. The City of Stonnington undertook a consultation process with 32 households in the immediate vicinity. 28 responded with 22 in favour of a permit zone and six against it.
New FCC Rules Target International RobocallersFCC Empowers Carriers to ‘Aggressively Block’ Robocalls The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and law enforcement officials teamed up to crack down on illegal robocalls.Their joint “Operation Call It Quits” effort targets U.S. enterprises responsible for more than 1 billion calls pitching various products and services.“We’re all fed up with the tens of billions of illegal robocalls we get every year,” Andrew Smith, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, said in a statement.Already, the agency has four new cases and three new settlements, bringing its total number of claims against illegal robocallers and Do Not Call (DNC) violators to 145.State partners announcing enforcement actions this week include the Attorneys General Offices for Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia; the Consumer Protection Divisions of the District Attorneys for Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, and Santa Clara, Calif.; the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services; and the Los Angeles City Attorney.“Every year, our office gets more consumer complaints about unwanted robocalls than just about any other issue,” according to Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill. “At best, these calls represent a nuisance for families just wanting to enjoy peace and privacy without needless disturbances interrupting their routine.“At worst,” he said, “they represent scams that successfully steal people’s identities or hard-earned money.”In addition to the actions by the FTC, 25 federal, state, and local agencies have brought 87 enforcement actions as part of the “Operation Call It Quits” initiative.The U.S. Attorney’s Offices for the Northern District of Georgia, Middle District of Florida, and Southern District of Texas—with support from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration—also contributed five criminal actions.The join effort, Smith added, “shows that combating this scourge remains a top priority for law enforcement agencies around the nation.”Part of the Commission’s ongoing effort to help curb pre-recorded telemarketing, the movement also includes information to educate consumers about illegal robocalls.You can find additional information on ways to limit bothersome calls online.More on Geek.com:FCC Empowers Carriers to ‘Aggressively Block’ RobocallsAT&T, Comcast Team Up to Fight Annoying RobocallsJohn Oliver Robocalls FCC to Prove Point About Robocalls Stay on target

Vets have warned pet owners that the lack of a proper winter this year could lead to an epidemic in fleas and ticks this summer.Unless killed by other means such as chemicals, the insects only die or lie dormant in cold weather, but the extremely mild winter has meant this natural ‘cull’ has not taken place, which is bad news for animals – and owners – in the long, hot months that lie ahead.“Temperatures have been up and down this year, but it hasn’t been really cold,” said Nicosia vet Andreas Artemiou.He warned of a possible epidemic and says appropriate measures need to be taken.“Fleas and ticks have been around from the end of January this year, earlier than usual.”He said pet owners should not only use anti-flea and anti-tick agents on their all animals but also spray their garden areas which may well be full of flea nests.“They should also only use products sold by vets, not those by pet shops or supermarkets,” he added, “as our climate means these are not going to work.”Keeping your dog mostly in the house is also no guarantee that they will remain flea and tick-free.“Dogs can catch them when you take them for a short walk as there are nests outside. The situation is not helped by the fact that there are a lot of stray cats around which have never been treated,” he said.While admitting that a mild winter may influence the number of fleas and ticks around, head of the vet services Christodoulos Pipis was cautious about predicting an epidemic.“There are multifactorial issues, it is not just about the weather,” he said.He added that it was unlikely that outdoor eggs, larvae, and adult fleas in Cyprus would be killed off even in a colder winter as this only happens with sustained cold when temperatures are below zero.He also cautioned against the excessive use of chemicals.Pipis recommends treatment with insecticides and repellents on animals and to spray areas such as clothes and carpentry which are places favouring propagation.But he warned that such chemicals need to be used wisely, as using them may well kill off beneficial species such as bees.“People should inform themselves and be very careful and diligent and avoid spraying where there are bee hives around and plants the bees visit,” he concluded.There are natural alternatives too.“Chemicals are often the easy solution but how many people have actually tried a method such as diatomaceous earth which requires more effort but may be as effective?” environmentalist Daniel Demetriou asked. “You rub it into your pet’s skin and it works as a drying agent, getting rid of all bugs without being toxic.”Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring soft rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white powder. This fine powder absorbs fats and waxes from the outer layer of insects’ skeletons, causing them to dehydrate.It can also be used in other areas such as a dog’s bedding as a repellent or in the garden, he said.

Nicosia-based EuroAsia Interconnector has urged Athens to re-engage in discussions on a joint EU-funded project to connect the power grids of Israel-Cyprus-Crete and mainland Greece or risk it not going ahead.A similar appeal was made by the EU’s Energy Directorate chief and Cyprus regulators on February 27 (joint announcement), as well as the Cyprus energy ministry that urged Greece not to isolate Cyprus.EuroAsia sounded the alarm of unavoidable lengthy delays, or worse, project risk following a recent decision by Greek transmissions system operator, ADMIE, to go it alone with the Crete-Attica section of the project and abandon cooperation with the Cypriot project promoter.This was done even though there is a political commitment from the governments of Cyprus and Greece to build an electricity interconnector that ensures the security of supply and cleaner energy.The Cypriot firm argues that by Greece going it alone to promote a “national project” – rather than an EU Project of Common Interest – Greek consumers will be burdened with an additional €450 million cost while jeopardising efforts to lift Cyprus from energy isolation.After Greek officials blamed EuroAsia for the current impasse, the company has issued a document clarifying the state of play.It puts the record straight regarding the financing of the Israel-Cyprus-Greece project, especially the €1.1 billion Crete-Attica link, as well as the need for the Cyprus and Greek sides to agree on a technical commonality. This being the interoperability of the 1000MW cable and the four converter stations that have to be built, connecting Israeli energy to the continental European electricity grid.EuroAsia refutes any notion, as implied by ADMIE, that it is the Cypriot side that refuses to cooperate, by not signing a shareholders’ agreement for the new “national project”.“The delays in the implementation of the project are due to the Greek side’s failure to accept the agreed roadmap as proposed by the European Commission,” said EuroAsia in a statement.Moreover, Energy Commissioner Manuel Arias Canete warned Greece in January that going it alone would mean violating all European agreements that could be subject to infringement procedures.EuroAsia argues that if previously agreed guidelines were followed, it would have already awarded tenders and reached the construction phase, comfortably meeting the mid-2022 deadline for the Crete-Attica link.It said unilateral decisions by Greece will not resolve the delays but jeopardise the entire project at an additional financial cost to Cypriot and Greek consumers.

20 SPAR supermarkets will be opened in Cyprus over the next five years following a partnership between Ermes Deparment Stores Plc, a member of the Cyprus Trading Corporation Plc Group (CTC), and the Dutch retail group SPAR International.“The first SPAR stores to open in Cyprus are planned for Q1 (first quarter of) 2018 with a target of opening of more than 20 SPAR supermarkets over the coming five years,” Ermes said in a statement on the website of the Cyprus Stock Exchange on Tuesday. “The stores will be both independent retailer conversions to the SPAR brand and new company owned, greenfield SPAR Supermarkets developed by Ermes. The new entity, to be created in Cyprus by Ermes, aims to establish and manage the biggest co-operation in retail foodstores and to become the leading wholesale and retail service provider to independent retailers in Cyprus through expert leadership, cooperation and support”.SPAR operates 12,545 stores in 44 countries and posted a €33.1bn in turnover last year, the statement said. Ermes operates 90 retail shops selling apparel, cosmetics and electrical appliances with over 75 square meters in retail space. Seven Ermes stores are in Greece.The Dutch company will provide support through retail layout and design, own brand products, staff training and expertise in other areas including brand building marketing campaigns, it said. “The access to international SPAR best practice will be combined with local expertise and skills to provide independent retailers with a full package of solutions and tools to enable them to thrive and survive in a very competitive market”.Marios Shacolas, CTC chief executive chairman and officer said that the strategic alliance with SPAR will help Ermes maintain market leadership on the island and continue on the path of sustainable growth. “Whilst we will benefit from the SPAR global network and support services, we will not lose sight of our need to strengthen local manufacturers, distributors and retailers, giving back to our local economy”.SPAR’s managing director Tobias Wasmuht said that the deal will allow independent retailers on the island “to respond to growing market concentration in Cyprus of national and international chains while meeting the needs of both local and international tourist shoppers”.“Unifiying together as SPAR Cyprus permits, the progressive independent retailers of Cyprus to maintain their independence whilst seizing the benefits of a strong international food retail brand with the scale benefits of a buying group operating on both a national and international level,” the SPAR executive added.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboola

Wednesday when a group of gunmen opened fire at the office of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo French President Franois Hollande quickly arrived to the scene and labeled it a "terrorist attack" echoing condemnations from other world leaders as authorities began a manhunt for the assailantsIDEAS Joshua Spivak is a senior fellow at the Hugh L Carey Institute for Government Reform at Wagner College In a few short weeks the House of Representatives has gone into a complete tailspin House Speaker John Boehner announced his impending resignation his presumed successor Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy bowed out of a race and the Republicans are wildly looking for anyone to take the job In addition to prominent members of Congress like Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy there has also been a series of past elected officials mentionedincluding Mitt Romney Newt Gingrich and Dick Cheney The Speaker of the House is an unusual positionit is specifically called for in the Constitution but there is no requirement that the Speaker actually be an elected representative The Speaker is also second in line for the presidency after the vice president which raises the important question: Should someone from the opposition party who wasnt even currently elected to office be in line for the highest office With the House in total disarray it’s time to re-examine how we arrived at America’s current line of successionand whether we should change it The first succession law which was enacted in 1792 made the Senate President Pro Tempore second in line with the Speaker right after him This law was changed in 1886 following a two-decade stretch in which two presidents were assassinated two vice presidents died of natural causes and one president Andrew Johnson was impeached At that time Congress continually changed hands so the new law put the unelected cabinet members beginning with the Secretary of State ahead of Congress in the line of succession The 1886 law stayed in place until 1947 At that time Democrat Harry Truman was in the White House and there was no vice president (the appointment of a vice president after a death or resignation only started after the passage of the 25th Amendment in 1967) Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and wanted to ensure that should anything happen they would move up They reverted back to the old law with one changethey now placed the Speaker of the House before the Senate President Pro Tempore The recent House Speakers would presumably have been up to the challenge of serving as president but it seems less likely that many of the recent Senate Presidents Pro Tempore would have Recent tradition has held that position be the filled by the longest-serving member of the majority party The current President Pro Tempore is Utahs 81-year-old Orrin Hatch Former Senate Presidents Pro Tempore include 99-year old Strom Thurmond who stepped down from his position of Senate Armed Services Committee Chairmanship 92-year old Robert Byrd who had to be removed as the chair of the Appropriations Committee because he was unable to do his job and 88-year-old Daniel Inouye who died in office There are many different opinions about who should be second in line Harry Truman among others believed that the Congressional leaders should be second simply because they were elected and not appointed The Continuity of Government Commission has argued that Cabinet members should be second in order to keep the presidents party in power and ensure that there is a clear chain of succession in the midst of what could be a very complicated turnover process The important thing is that we have a constant and competent leadership during a crisis History has shown we need to have a plan: Just go back to April 14 1865 when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated Secretary of State William Seward was stabbed and Vice President Andrew Johnson and General Ulysses S Grant were targeted The "Who wants to be the Speaker" show in the House has already started a political paralyzation in the capital But the fact that the line of succession is in play means that now is a good a time as any for a serious discussion of how to make sure that in case of a disaster future possible presidents are actually able to do the job Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news

would continue With inputs from IANS There is something curious about BJP’s Rahul Gandhi strategy Its senior leaders go out of their way to portray the Congress president-in-waiting as a bit of a dilettante and use derision and ridicule as a political strategy For instance Union I&B minister Smriti Irani recently told a TV channel that BJP will distribute laddoos the day Gandhi formally takes over as Congress chief — implying that his ascension will benefit BJP These are not off-the-cuff mockeries These are deliberate statements aimed at serving an important purposeCongress vice-president Rahul Gandhi addresses a public meeting during his road show at Karjan village in Vadodara on Tuesday PTI BJP’s aim it would seem is to make Gandhi the butt of public ridicule For that reason the party goes out of its way to highlight the Gandhi scion’s gaffes inconsistencies and goof-ups in public speeches whenever it can helped no doubt by the fact that the Congress vice-president gives ample opportunities For all practical purposes and despite its dwindling political fortune the Congress still remains the only national alternative to BJP Therefore if the prime ministerial aspirant of the chief Opposition party can be turned into a laughing stock he becomes a non-serious candidate in public perception The idea is to diminish Gandhi’s stature through humiliation and ridicule and deny Congress vice-president the equivalence that he demands with Prime Minister Narendra Modi The use of humiliation as a political strategy goes back a long way In her essay Ridicule as Strategic Communication Kristin Fleischer writes: "Ridicule and satire have a long history in warfare and they have been deployed both offensively and defensively In the US ridicule was used in the Revolutionary War both to mock the British troops and to raise the morale of the American fighters In World War 2 domestic use of ridicule targeted Hitler Mussolini and Hirohito" A more recent example of this strategy was Donald Trump’s description of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un as ‘rocket man’ where the US president sought to make fun of the tinpot and take the sting out of Kim’s threats of nuclear warfare by referring to an Elton John number Humour is the best antidote to fear As Jake Novak explained in CNBC "Kim Jong Un’s most important commodity at his disposal is fear That nuclear and missile program-created fear makes him a factor in a world that would otherwise not even care if he existed" By using ridicule as a weapon Trump was trying to rob him of that gravitas and simultaneously generate justification for his future actions among the populace That’s why we find minister Irani refer to Gandhi as a "non-serious leader swinging from Berkeley to Amethi" As a political ploy BJP’s strategy is sound And this is where it becomes mystifying If the BJP’s primary aim is to hammer the notion that the Congress vice-president is a non-serious dynastic dilettante then holding a massive public rally in Amethi to coincide with Gandhi’s campaign in Gujarat for the upcoming Assembly polls is a strange way to go about it It may seem that BJP was trying desperately to deflect media attention from Gandhi’s Gujarat forays by unleashing fearsome firepower in Amethi where no election is scheduled before 2019 To be clear the BJP (as any other political party in India) has every right to hold a public rally whenever and wherever it chooses That right is guaranteed by the Constitution What is to be noted here is the strategic confusion The twin ploys might be great as standalone strategies but are mutually incompatible You cannot pretend that someone is a political lightweight and then press heavyweight leaders into service to take on his Gujarat programme One cancels the other If the BJP had been convinced that the Congress vice-president is destined to remain a footnote in India’s political history then what was the need for the party to field its president Amit Shah Irani and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath in Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency What was the need for Adityanath to call for a Rs 100 crore statue of Lord Ram in Ayodhya when all eyes are in Gujarat for upcoming polls Why did Shah feel the need to level charges of ‘neglecting Amethi’ against Gandhi and contrast it with ‘vikas in Gujarat’ This indicates that the BJP though it may not admit so in public has taken note of the fact that the Congress vice-president is slowly gaining traction among the electorate Darshan Desai of Firstpost who is tracking Gandhi’s rallies in Gujarat reports from Chhota Udaipur that the Congress leader is getting "rousing reception" from the crowd almost everywhere that he visited during the last two days — Kheda Anand Vadodara and Chhota Udaipur — districts in central Gujarat His public speeches too have become sharper interspersed as these are with one-liners like ‘Amit Shah ka beta bachao’ which reportedly got a good response Controversies haven’t left him though as his comment "RSS shakha mein aapne kabhi mahilaon ko Delhi hain Mainey tou nahi dekha kya aapne shorts mein mahilaon ko shakha mein dekha hain Mainey nahi dekha" (How many women have you seen in RSS shakhas Have you ever seen women in shorts at RSS shakhas I have not) gave space for BJP to level charges of "debauchery" against him Speaking to Times Now minister Irani said Gandhi’s remarks were "debauched" and stemmed from a "lack of understanding of Indian culture" She added that the Congress president-to-be was nearly 50 and should be responsible for what he says "Women empowerment doesn’t come from the clothes we wear but it is the mindset that we leverage" Gandhi’s remarks were certainly in poor taste if not debauched and created an impression that he is unaware of RSS’ women wing but still the Congress leader seemed to be tapping into the winter of discontent against BJP He might be hoping to benefit from a combination of anti-incumbency in Gujarat and Modi government’s recent steps to formalise the economy and push in structural reforms that have introduced large-scale disruption It might be premature at this stage to suggest that Congress would be able to turn this crowd response into votes but the ferocity of BJP’s response to Gandhi leaves little space for doubt that the party is feeling uneasy If the Congress manages to wrest Gujarat away from BJP or even turn in a significantly better performance the road ahead to 2019 could be interesting they have started the violence because they "had lost credentials"
