of states that are going to the polls in the next few months the party’s chances of breaking the Congress party’s age old stranglehold in Assam the commercial and political hub of the north east is the best After its drubbing in Bihar the ruling party desperately needs a big assembly win to boost its self image Breaking new ground by winning Assam will help to restore its wounded pride There is little hope of winning West Bengal even less Tamil Nadu Kerala or Puducherry Representational image AFP Realising this the BJP has already got its star campaigner Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address meetings in Assam During his recent visit to the state the crowds that thronged his meeting in the tea garden township of Moran signals that the gains made in the 2014 national elections may pay handsome dividends in the assembly polls The BJP was able to wrest seven of Assam’s fourteen parliamentary seats from the Congress More important the BJP is likely to tie up with the states regional party the Asam Gana Parishad (AGP) to ensure that the vote of the local Assamese which would otherwise be divided between the BJP and AGP will not go waste Negotiations with the AGP is now at the last stage with some differences over a few key constitutencies like Tezpur and Kamalpur which both parties want But over 75 percent of the work has already been done and unless there is a last minute hitch the two will announce an alliance very soon The BJP and the AGP are natural allies Even before the AGP was formed with the student leaders who organised a mass movement against infiltration of Bangladeshis into Assam the BJP had staunchly supported the students against the Congress government of late Hiteshwar Saikia in the state and the Congress led by Indira Gandhi at the Centre BJP leaders like Atal Bihari Vajpayee LK Advani and Jaswant Singh would often visit Assam to show their support for the anti-foreigners movement in the state Both the BJP and AGP are vehemently anti-Congress Both blame the Congress for encouraging Bangladeshi immigrants into the state for electoral benefit The anti-immigrant mood in the state is echoed by both AGP and BJP leaders and finds resonance among local Assamese with exaggerated fears of a demographic shift in the state due to immigration Fears of becoming a minority in their own state has fuelled middle class anger against the Congress For the last several decades the Congress has never had the unstinting support of the Assamese especially the middle class But in the past it had an unassailable winning combination of both the Bengali Muslim and the tea garden labour votes Both these bastions have now been breached The Bengali Muslim immigrant voters largely confined to lower and central Assam have for a few years now looked to Badaruddin Ajmal’s All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) to lead them Though chief minister Tarun Gogoi had been able to swing the state in the successive elections this time around his hold is said to have weakened An alliance between the Congress and AIUDF would work against the BJP-AGP But there is little likelihood of the two parties getting together before the elections That would be cobbled together only if the polls give no one party a majority The other Congress strongpoint down the years had been its hold on the tea labour votes But now the BJP has made major inroads into the tea gardens especially in Upper Assam In the 2014 national elections a strong tea labour candidate like Pawan Singh Ghatowar who was also a DONER minister lost the Dibrugarh seat The BJP’s fresh faces from Upper Assam tea areas — Kamakhya Prasad Tasa and Rameswar Teli are likely to play an important part in mobilising the communities votes But the Congress under Tarun Gogoi is not going to give up without a fight Gogoi is an old war horse Despite his age he has suddenly become super active and is going out of his way to divide the AIDUF votes He has been concentrating his energies in the immigrant islets or ‘chor’ areas and pointed to his governments record of service for these marginalized groups The problem with Gogoi is not that he is a poor administrator or a bad chief minister But after three terms as CM people want a change A fresh face would have made a difference But the party cannot be underestimated as it has a good party organisation unlike in several other states Gogoi is stepping up the campaigning as he fight with his back to the wall By: Express News Service | New Delhi | Published: August 27 2017 5:05 am Danish who was shot dead Top News A

NewsMumbai:Lawyers and activists on Monday hailed the Haji Ali Dargah Trust’s stand in the Supreme Court that it will allow female worshippers to enter the sanctum sanctorum of the famous shrine here calling it a boost to women’s rights movement and victory for Constitution Haji Ali Dargah CNN-News18 Gender equality campaigner Trupti Desai termed the decision of the Trust as a "victory of women worshippers and Indian Constitution" The Desai-led outfit Bhumata Ranragini Brigade had started a campaign against gender bias at various religious places including Haji Ali Dargah "Due to pressure of the Supreme Court and women organisations fighting against gender bias the trustees of Haji Ali Dargah had to take this decision" Desai told PTI Human rights activist and lawyer Abha Singh termed the development as "a boost to women’s rights movement" and said it is a clear message that women cannot be chained "This is a clear message to all misogynistic elements that you cannot chain women anymore It’s a boost to women’s rights movement Haji Ali Dargah Trust by agreeing to allow women to enter the sanctum sanctorum has upheld the superiority of Constitution" she said "The Bombay High Court had clearly said the entry ban violated Articles 14 15 and 25 of Constitution which gave women right to equality and prohibited all forms of discrimination" she pointed out The SC has granted four weeks time to the Trust to make requisite infrastructural and other changes for compliance of the Bombay High Court order lifting ban on women from entering the core area of the renowned Muslim shrine in South Mumbai Suhail Khandwani a trustee of the Dargah said a meeting of the management and others including architects and advocates will be convened soon to facilitate entry of women in the

with separate entrance and exit for male and female worshippers A few boxes were placed which blocked the view of the sanctum sanctorum and became missing link between women and the sanctorum These boxes will be shifted paving the way for women’s entry again" he said Khandwani said Islam as well as Constitution speaks about gender equality The Dargah situated on an islet 500 metres away from the
