Published: October 22 2017 10:07 am Ricciardo had fuelled rumours of a possible move earlier on Saturday (Source: USA Today Sports) Top News Red Bull team chief Christian Horner on Saturday made clear that he is determined to retain Australian Daniel Ricciardo alongside Max Verstappen beyond 2018 One day after the team confirmed Verstappen 20 had signed a new three-year deal to run until 2020 Horner stressed that Red Bull had no intention of giving Ricciardo a supporting role He also rejected suggestions that Ricciardo would gain from a switch to join Mercedes or Ferrari in a bid to win the world championship The Australian said on Friday that he was in no hurry to decide his future — his contract runs to the end of 2018– but would relish a chance to race with three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton Horner however said he was confident that Ricciardo will stay with Red Bull providing they can build a competitive race-winning car “Time will tell” said Horner “Daniel is very happy within the team If we can provide a competitive car then I’ve got every confidence that he will be here in the future He would have the same issues with those teams (Ferrari and Mercedes) and I think Red Bull fits well his personality The way that we operate he sees he has very equal treatment and that he’s not performing a supporting role The way we operate here is that we give both drivers absolute opportunity Within the other teams he would be performing very much a supporting role” Horner added: “There’s more than 12 months left on Daniel’s contract so we’ve got a little bit of time but at the right moment we’ll sit down and talk about the future “The clear intent is to ensure that we keep Daniel in the car past the end of 2018 “That’s absolutely our goal — to retain both drivers For me it’s the best driver line-up that we’ve had I think it’s probably the best driver line-up on the grid and we’re obviously very keen to retain that” Ricciardo had fuelled rumours of a possible move earlier on Saturday when he said he had always wanted to race with Hamilton or two-time champion Fernando Alonso “Alonso’s getting towards the tail of his career so Lewis at the moment is more desirable for me to go up against” he said “So I would like that” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Srikanth Viswanathan | Updated: June 13 2014 7:04 am Any attempt to reform city systems needs to begin with the municipal acts (Source: Reuters) Related News Conversations on cities and towns in India have traditionally focused on either physical infrastructure such as roads and bridges metro rails parks and sewerage systems or on quality of life outcomes such as safety and crime pollution and garbage But the systems that determine the ability of municipal corporations to deliver quality infrastructure and services — and thereby a good quality of life — have not found sufficient space in the public discourse A recent study by Janaagraha the Annual Survey of India’s City-Systems points to why the conversation needs to move from outcomes to systems City systems refer to the laws policies institutions and institutional processes and accountability mechanisms that pervade the functioning of municipal corporations and which determine the quality of life of citizens City systems are therefore root causes The second annual survey evaluated 21 Indian cities and two global benchmarks on the city systems of urban planning and design urban capacities and resources empowered and legitimate political representation and transparency accountability and participation A key finding was that on average Indian cities scored between 25 and 4 out of 10 against London and New York which scored 96 and 93 respectively Clearly India has emaciated city systems that need significant strengthening But where do we begin Any attempt to reform city systems needs to begin with the municipal acts Town and country planning acts that apply to most Indian cities are archaic Twelve out of the 21 cities that were evaluated are covered by planning laws enacted between 1960 and 1980 Hyderabad is covered by an act from the 1920s The demographic transition since then and contemporary realities do not find a place in the planning process of cities Building violations lack of affordable housing haphazard construction pollution and environment degradation can all be traced back to the lack of comprehensive and contemporary planning acts In order to fulfil their service obligations municipal corporations require skilled human resources and the power to raise finances However the laws governing them have deliberately weakened municipal corporations which are our city governments Except Delhi and Patna no major Indian city has the power to recruit and manage its own staff Without exception municipal corporations have a large number of vacancies They do not have the strength to fill these because their powers of taxation and borrowing are limited Except Mumbai Thiruvananthapuram and Pune no Indian city has a per capita capital expenditure of more than Rs 4000 Of these only Mumbai and Pune have reasonable own revenues as a percentage of total expenditure — 67 and 96 per cent respectively Municipal acts need to be reformed to give corporations more financing and staffing powers How effective are mayors and councils Of eight strong mayors — directly elected with a five year term — none handles more than three out of the 10 critical functions they were evaluated on Further these cities have their hands tied on both financial management and staffing The average per capita capital expenditure in these cities is approximately Rs 1400 whereas the average of all 21 cities is in excess of Rs 2200 (Mumbai’s is over Rs 7500) With the exception of Chennai and Jaipur which have own revenues to total expenditure ratios of 57 and 64 per cent respectively all other cities with strong mayors have less than 50 per cent This story repeats on the staffing front as well Seven of the eight cities with strong mayors have a paltry 250 employees or less per 100000 citizens compared to Delhi and Mumbai which have 1260 and 895 employees per 100000 citizens respectively These anomalies are due to outdated municipal acts that do not take a “systems perspective” of cities Strong mayors and councils are ineffective without adequate staffing and finances Similarly a system with robust finances and staffing without an empowered leadership will also not deliver outcomes in an accountable manner Even if there were a city with the best planning acts a strong mayor and council and adequate staffing and financing how can citizens assure their voice is heard Municipal acts need to provide for meaningful transparency accountability and formal platforms for citizen participation While hundreds of cities around the world even in peer countries such as Brazil have adopted open government practices Indian municipal acts ensure that our municipal corporations are underscored by opacity It is only apathy and a lack of initiative that can explain why municipal corporations are not embracing the concept of open government If India is to witness a transformation in the quality of life in its cities it needs to get its municipal act together State governments must undertake a comprehensive review of the acts Only such a review can overhaul municipal corporations and turn them into modern institutions Building new cities is important But recasting systems in existing ones is an imperative that will directly impact the lives of more than 600 million Indians by 2030 The writer is coordinator advocacy research and capacity building at Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy

election time Friends become foes ideologies blur and bitter rivals can end up on the same side Last week saw a reversal of roles so bizarre that as a responsible political columnist I consider it my duty to bring it to your attention Sonia Gandhi met Ahmed Bukhari the Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid and reportedly asked him to urge Muslims to vote en bloc for the Congress to defeat communalism Meanwhile Narendra Modi the man she once called a ‘maut ka saudagar (merchant of death)’ gave us a lecture on the nuances of ‘real’ secularism In long years of covering elections I have never before seen such a reversal of roles What makes this reversal most interesting is that it finally forced Modi to fall into the Congress trap and talk about secularism Congress campaign managers had carefully planned a strategy that was centered around frightening voters (especially Muslim voters) to shun Modi on Hindutva grounds But ever since he became the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate he has stayed far away from any mention of Hindutva And he seems to have consciously avoided getting into the fetid debate over secularism and communalism that has so often distracted India away from much more important things such as the war against poverty At public rallies across the country Modi has emphasised that his priorities if he becomes prime minister will be to give India better governance so that ordinary Indians can finally dream a dream of prosperity So cleverly has he dictated the agenda of the campaign that Rahul Gandhi has been forced to respond with his own economic ideas These are simple and simply explained even if they are not true Only the Congress cares about poor people Rahul says at his public rallies and to the televised gatherings of coolies rickshaw-wallahs fishermen tribal folk and assorted other disadvantaged groups whom he has sought out It is because the Congress cares so much about the poor he tells them that it has spent the past decade giving ordinary Indians the right to information education tribal land and cheap food grain And if the gods are kind and allow a UPA-III to come to be then there will be more rights available like a right to free medicines and healthcare He emphasises that these things have happened because the Congress cares for the poor while the BJP cares only for the rich Not true for obvious reasons No political party can hope to win even a municipal election in India by relying on the votes of rich Indians Us political pundits have nevertheless been so delighted that economic issues have dominated the campaign that reams of column inches have celebrated this So why did Sonia Gandhi suddenly feel the need to seek out an Islamic cleric with dubious influence Could it be because recent polls have indicated that on account of Modi the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) looks certain to cross the 230 mark Could it be that these same polls have hinted at the Congress facing its worst defeat ever Or could it just be last-minute panic caused by the thinness of crowds at Congress rallies and the public reluctance of major Congress leaders to contest elections this time Whatever the reason it was not a good political move and is unlikely to change anything This is because in this election an estimated 98 million new voters have been added to the 717 million registered to vote in 2009 and most of these new voters are uninterested in temples and mosques and take Indian secularism for granted These first-time voters whether Hindu or Muslim want less talk of religion and more talk of how the next prime minister will create the 12 million new jobs that India needs to create every year Very few young Hindus attend RSS shakhas or dream of building a ‘grand temple’ to Ram And very few young Muslims feel deeply enough about the demolition of the Babri Masjid to want to join a movement to rebuild it Even Muslims who despise Modi for what happened in Gujarat in 2002 are inclined these days to see those riots with some perspective So Yahya Bukhari the brother of the Imam who has announced his support for the Congress said two days after Sonia’s visit that the Congress had been more responsible for massacring Muslims than any other political party Sadly for Sonia what she ended up achieving by her new strategy was to open the door for another attack by Modi Relishing the chance to stick the secular dagger in he expounded at some length on his own definition of secularism which he said meant treating all Indians equally not following the Congress example of using secularism as an excuse

running “organised sex racket by trapping and blackmailing young girls mostly coming from poor families” Following a brief hearing Justice J B Pardiwala issued notice and sought case details from the government on the petition moved by the victim through her lawyer Mehul H Rathod The court has posted the matter for hearing on March 31 In the petition the victim has alleged that the local police instead of investigating the case are shielding the accused and not investigating the sex racket that has “30 to 35 young girls who are also victims…” In the petition the victim has alleged that Kutch

the 23rd Foundation Day of the Delhi Metro the L-G without elaborating on the proposal said the final decision will be taken by the authorities concerned including the Centre and the Delhi government which hold equal equity in the DMRC He however stressed on the need for the last-mile connectivity in Delhi and parking spaces around Metro stations — a problem that has consistently plagued the DMRC

Jayalalithaa’s death as a precondition for merger talks State Finance Minister D Jayakumar said such “politics of opportunism” will not succeed and questioned why Panneerselvam had not “taken action” in this regard when he was the chief minister for 75 days following Jayalalithaa’s death in December last “OPS (Panneerselvam) was the chief minister for 75 days He should have taken action then itself Not taking action then and putting forward such a demand now is opportunism which the people will not accept” he told reporters here “There is no history of politics of opportunism succeeding It will be swept away by the tides of time” he added A CBI probe into Jayalalithaa’s “mysterious” death is among the conditions put forward by the AIADMK Puratchi Thalaivi Amma faction led by Panneerselvam for the merger talks to commence with the rival faction led by Chief Minister EK Palaniswami The other demand of the Panneerselvam camp is the expulsion of jailed AIADMK general

an individualistic approach Disrespecting religious taboos they embraced art science literature and philosophy to begin the Renaissance injecting colour in every element of design This infusion of colour is so deep rooted in every Italian psyche that when I egged on my dressed-David-statue look-alike Italian friend to enter our Painter CEO Club he subconsciously painted Mediterranean blue of the sea green of the hills and orange of the sky at sunset Yes he’s a CEO in India That’s why I invited him to display his artistic mindset through colours on a canvas something that 59 CEOs managing directors and chairmen have already done Take a look: http://wwwpainterceocom/participants/2014/Giorgio-De-Roniphp Or did my dressed-David paint his favourite Sardinia his wife’s Mediterranean home My experiential learning of Italian design techniques got heightened when his 84-year-old father-in-law Mr Meloni took us back from AD to BC He trudged us up to a primeval granite shelter called Nuraghe Majori Made of piled boulders without any material to joint it together its rooms passages and the steps to a turret were still decipherable Sardinia’s hallmark is its unique Bronze Age Nuragica civilisation dating 1800-1100 BC There once were 10000 megalithic stone dolmens scattered across the island depicting creative innovative use of materials and techniques of prehistoric architecture Just imagine this ancient foundation of Italian design is transcending to their day-to-day culture today Mr Meloni’s spirit of exposing the old was inexhaustible On a sunny day we went to ‘Olivastro di Luras’ — possibly the world’s oldest olive tree It has a girth of 1120 metres and is more than 3500 years old Speckled light falling under the tree displayed its exquisite bio-design; it was like an expedition to discover living history Mr Meloni explained differences in trees of thousands of years ago India’s banyan has multiple roots emanating from branches that spread to become trees whereas olive trees have just one trunk and root penetrating underground Its age is recorded in the rings of its trunk Perhaps there’s some relationship between Italian individualism and the olive tree’s single trunk whereas the banyan seems to accommodate a few generations of an Indian joint family living together Our trip to Mr Meloni’s farm was hilarious too Driving his small four-wheel drive Fiat Panda car he sped us down winding roads without a single pothole traversing the beauty of virgin greenery In 45 minutes we arrived at his undulating farmland where plenty of cows were grazing A huge metal gate was locked He gave the key to my dressed-David friend It’s important to tell you that on our return he got off the steering wheel to personally lock the gate to be 100 per cent sure With typical Italian-Mediterranean hand gestures and a wink dressed-David indicated how his father-in-law had no confidence in anybody when it came to his cows We entered the farm and my wife and her Italian friend rushed to greet the cows Watching from my camera lens I saw the cows were going away Well my wife’s a brown foreigner but how could they refuse to reciprocate an Italian psychology doctorate from Cambridge Mr Meloni behind me was chuckling childishly When he appeared in my camera in a beautiful voice he called “Bey Bey” Believe me all the cows immediately turned to surround him as though they were conversing nudging to get closer to him My wife laughed but David-look-alike was totally disappointed He dramatically bemoaned in heavy Italian accent and perfect English that even being a loving son-in-law the cows didn’t care I really enjoyed capturing this mutually-loving attitude of the animals and Mr Meloni on video Unlike French society I find that Italy’s incredible theatre reputation goes beyond the stage into real life Their day-to-day practical living is extremely dramatic from body gesture to spoken language to dressing style transcending to their toilet kitchen bedroom living room You can understand grand Italian culture from famous cine directors Federico Fellini or Ettore Scola actors Sophia Loren Marcello Mastroianni and Vittorio Gassman Of course let’s not forget their political drama from former President Silvio Berlusconi’s nude underwater parties with nubile girls to Cicciolina the prostitute who became and Italian minister in 1987 When Cicciolina went on official visits to different countries she’d dramatically bare her breasts at the airport She openly offered to have sex with Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden in exchange for world peace In every aspect of Italian life there’s drama that’s not artificial but real social life It’s really spectacular Easter Sunday lunch was an incredible four hours of true Sardinian-North Italian atmosphere surrounded by dressed-David’s extended family and friends When I accompanied my friend to bring the food I figured we were going to a caterer But no His wife had ordered food from different friends’ homes What touched me while returning home was dressed-David’s affectionate conjugal gesture He stopped the car at a slope climbed the mountain’s edge cut some wild lavender flowers with a pocket knife His plan to embellish his wife’s table with Sardinia’s fragrance is another example of Italian elegance Such cultural aesthetics are embedded in Italian living style We dined in full view of the valley mountains with plenty of cork trees Then in village Luras we visited his sister-in-law’s ancestral home Entering a centuries-old house and feeling the family continuity in every corner seemed more like a hallucination than visiting the palace in Versailles My Italian experience can fill a book but let me conclude my learning of design from five countries: France on making every selling proposition aspirational and disruptive; Germany on precision and process; Americans taught me industrial scale; Japan about miniaturisation and Italy for

internally displaced (Tamils) and suspected LTTE members were some of the excessesJayalalithaa said India should press the UN to declare as “war criminals those who had committed such alleged

jointly impose economic sanctions on Sri Lankan government” she said Only this will rein in the island government and “if India and other countries impose sanctionsSri Lanka has to listen to what we say” she said Jayalalithaa alleged that Tamils had been struggling against being treated as ‘second class citizens’ in their own country even after Sri Lanka got independence from British Economic sanctions were a ‘temporary measure’ as that would make Sri Lanka do what ‘we say’ in short termshe saidaddingthe demand was being made as ‘we have no other go’ DMK and Congress spoke on the
