Reel Vs Real Hero: Is Babusan’s campaigning in Kendrapara making Anubhav jittery?

Bhubaneswar: Ever since the BJP and BJD declared their candidates for Kendrapara parliamentary constituency, the segment, one of the most sensitive among the coastal belts, undoubtedly has turned out to be the political hotbed of Odisha.

On one side is BJP’s heavyweight Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda, the former Kendrapara MP who has served two consecutive LS terms, while on another is newbie in politics Anubhav Mohanty who is on his first term as Rajya Sabha member and has been pitted by the BJD for the seat.

With the amount of sweat and blood Panda has devoted to his constituency over the last decade, political pundits predict a cakewalk win for him in comparison to his BJD opponent, an actor by profession. As is known to all, Anubhav has the distinction of doing lead roles in many movies of Tarang Cine Productions which happens to be a creative brainchild of Panda’s wife.

Names of candidates declaration for Kendrapara by BJD, however, changed many old equations. Soon, Anubhav started speaking dialogues scripted not by filmmakers but politicians. Besides speaking crudely about Panda, the actor started delivering speeches on Industrialisation, migration and water problems of Kendrapara. He also wanted to solve Kashmir problem! But rhetoric gave way to more insecurity the day actor Babusan stepped on campaign trail as star campaigner with Panda.

“Baijayant Panda has been working hard for the development of the area for the last 10 years. He has been fighting for Kendrapara, to uphold its esteem. He is not just the people’s representative but stood by the people as a friend, in good and bad times. I don’t know politics, but I am not dumb. Dialogue delivery won’t work here. Kendrapara needs a real and original hero. Kendrapara needs son of the soil, Baijayant Panda.”
However, responding to Babusan’s ‘Jay-Panda-Real-Hero’ comments, BJD’s Anubhav Mohanty said, “He (Babusan) was talking about himself. I am a Rajya Sabha member and BJD Lok Sabha candidate. He (Babusan) has stated that reel hero won’t work here, when he himself happens to be a reel hero. He meant people should not take his words seriously. May be he has been promised with some films and awards and has taken money for campaigning.”

Elections 2019: BJP has a plan B in place which can be deployed in 20 mins

‘Even if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) gets 160 seats out of 545, we’re coming back to power. And Narendra Modi will be Prime Minister again’. This was not a Modi bhakt speaking but the resigned observation of an aide of a top minister in the Modi cabinet.

The aide conceded that in the first phase in Uttar Pradesh for instance where in 2014, BJP had got all eight seats, this time they might get two – Gautambudhnagar (or NOIDA) and Ghaziabad. ‘We are losing three, four seats from every state’ he said. But ‘it will take no more than 20 minutes after the results are out for Modi to form the government’.

‘The plan is already in place’ he said succinctly.

Modi’s speeches in Andhra Pradesh have made no mention of YSR Congress. His enemy is the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). He tore into Chandrababu Naidu, sparing no abuse. 

A few days later, he went to Odisha. When he spoke at Kalahandi, he launched a frontal attack on the Congress. In Sundargarh too, he targeted the Congress.Sure, he spoke about the Biju Janata Dal (BJD), the ruling regime legend in Odisha, the longevity of which no one can convincingly explain. But the reference was in relation to the slowness with which the state government took decisions. In Sundargarh, he expounded about the ‘neeyat’ of the BJD that kept from the people of Odisha, all the goodies – housing, cash, welfare schemes, insurance schemes -the central government had in mind for them.

This is very odd. It was the BJD which beat back the all-India Modi wave in 2014 – the party won 20 out of 21 Lok Sabha seats and 112 out of 147 assembly seats. It stands to reason that BJD should be the BJP’s primary enemy: but the way Modi spoke, it was not – it was the Congress.

Look at the data: in 2014, the Congress got around 21 per cent of the total vote. But the BJD got 44.7 per cent. And the BJP got just 8 per cent. In the 2014 assembly election, the Congress got 25.71 per cent of the vote. But the BJP got 17 per cent and the BJD, 43.35.

So clearly what the BJP is trying to do is not weaken the BJD – but get into the head of the Congress voter to tear him away from that party and turn him into a BJP voter.

In a sense, the BJP is doing the heavy lifting for the BJD by destroying the opposition and taking the Congress’s place as BJD’s primary opposition.

That process will take a long time. But till then why not make a friend of an enemy’s enemy? In other words, why not befriend BJD?

Dharmendra Pradhan, the seniormost leader of the BJP in Odisha has had no qualms about charging Naveen Patnaik with corruption. But Modi has never said the leader is corrupt – only slow.

So is that the plan? That BJD and YSR Congress are Plan B? It certainly looks like it.

While on the subject, consider Amit Shah’s speeches in Telangana. They were all about Rahul baba. But the real enemy for the BJP in Telangana is not Rahul Baba. It is the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) which brought the BJP seat tally from 5 to 1 in the just concluded assembly elections. However, if Shah roared against the Congress, he just mewed against the TRS. What does that tell us?

Budget 2019: Govt doles out sops for farmers, middle class and poor in pre-poll Budget

Goyal showered tax sops for the middle class and announced an annual income support of Rs 6,000 for small farmers as he presented a please-all Budget on Friday.

BHUBANESWAR: Reaching out to a large electorate ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, the Modi government on Friday announced a cash dole for small farmers, a mega pension scheme for the unorganised sector and gave tax rebate to those earning up to Rs 5 lakh per annum.

Among the major sops, finance minister has announced Rs 6,000 per annum direct cash transfer to farmers owning less than two hectares of land. The move, months before general elections, is likely to benefit 12 crore farmers. Rs 60,000 crore has also been set aside for MGNREGA, the rural employment scheme, with Piyush Goyal adding that the allocation can be increased further.

"Farmers earlier did not get full cost for their produce. Farmers income has reduced over the years. Income support to farmers small and marginal farmers Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM KISAN) has been approved. Famers having 2 hectares and less will be provided with Rs 6000 per annum directly into their accounts," Goyal said.

The amount will be directly transferred to the accounts of farmers in three equal installments.

The ruling TRS in Telangana claimed the cash dole for farmers announced in the union budget was an "imitation" of the 'Rythu Bandhu' scheme in the state with slight modifications.

 The government has lowered customs duty on import of parts and components of such vehicles to 10-15 per cent to promote domestic assembling of electric vehicles.

 Goyal said more than 70 per cent of Mudra yojna beneficiaries were women. He said the Narenadra Modi-led government has also taken several steps to empower women, including the Pradhan Mantri Matritva Yojana and providing 26 weeks of maternity leave.

 Benefit of rollover of capital tax gains to be increased from investment in one residential house to that in two residential houses, for a taxpayer having capital gains up to 2 crore rupees; can be exercised once in a lifetime.

 Finance Minister proposed a full tax rebate for those earning Rs 5 lakh for the next financial year.

 Rs 76,800 crore allocated for welfare of SCs/STs. Budget allocation to North East region increased by 21 per cent to Rs 58,166 crore for 2019-20.

 Tax collection increased to Rs 12 lakh crore this year, returns filed to 6.85 crore. 

 The national centre for artificial intelligence is under consideration. Along with that a national AI portal will be developed soon.

 Defence budget for the first time has increased to Rs 3 lakh crore and additional funds will be provided. Over 100 operation airports in the country and domestic passenger traffic has doubled in last five years.

 Mega Pension Yojana, namely Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Mandhan, to provide assured monthly pension of 3000 rupees per month, with contribution of 100 rupees per month, for workers in unorganized sector after 60 years of age. 

 More than 70 percent of the beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana are women and it additionally helps them set up businesses and other entrepreneurship related activities.

 Gratuity limit increased from 10 lakh to 30 lakh rupees.

 Rashtriya Kamdhenu Ayog to look after effective implementation of policies and schemes for the welfare of cows.

 Rs 60,000 crore allocated for MGNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act).

 The current account deficit is likely to be only 2.5 percent of the GDP this year, Finance Minister said.

 Markets open flat, Sensex opens 10 points up and NIFTY starts the day with a gain of 15 points ahead of presentation of Budget 2019.

 The farm relief package may cost anywhere between Rs 70,000 crore to Rs 1 lakh crore, according to sources.

 Bankers also expect government to announce steps that may help the industry tackle the bad loans menace.

 Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Railways said, "The way the government has increased the investment in railways, from installing CCTV cameras to WiFi, I believe further investment in railways will certainly be increased.

 "We as a government have restored fiscal sanity which the previous government had completely violated," says Jayant Sinha on Budget 2019.

 The rupee depreciated by 9 paise to 71.17 in early trade on the forex market amid strengthening of the American currency and caution ahead of interim budget.

 Income support scheme for distressed farmers who have seen their incomes stagnate because of plunging prices, barely enough to pay for loans and input costs.

 The Budget documents will contain revenue and expenditure projections for the entire 2019-20 fiscal year beginning April 1, but a 'Vote on Account' will seek Parliament nod for the expenditure side.
