Australia are 33/2 1347 hrs IST: Australia?strongest voice for Hindu nationalists on the national stage? What this highly respected newspaper misseslike most of Modis Indian opponentsis that the support he is getting nationally has nothing to do with Hindu nationalism Casual conversations with ordinary Indians (non-English speaking ones) usually reveal that they are impressed with what he has done in Gujarat and support him in the hope that he can do the same for India Not even in Uttar Pradesh these days is it easy to meet people who support him because they want him to build a temple to Ram in Ayodhya What I personally find most worrying is that Indian intellectuals of secularLeftist disposition appear to have so little faith in the institutions of Indian democracy They see them as so feeble that one man in the prime ministers office can blow them down as soon as he takes office Surelythey should have noticed that although the prime ministers office has been seriously diminished in the past 10 years by the Congress presidentand Parliament made dysfunctional by the BJPthese institutions remain strong enough to remain upright in the worst storms The justice system moves too slowly for modern requirements but it has maintained the rule of law andexcept once during the Emergencyhas defended the fundamental rights of Indias citizens So even if a supposedly dangerous man like Modi becomes prime ministerhe would find it impossible to become a despot The institutions of Indian democracywe should rememberproved strong enough even when democracy was a newly bornfragile thingduring the Emergency Since then a vibrantvery powerful media and an aggressivedemanding middle class have caused the institutions of democracy to grow so strong that Arvind Kejriwal and his activists could take over Delhi and Anna Hazare has managed to ram the Lokpal Bill down our throats From being reviled not so very long ago as a nuisance and a troublemaker by our political leadersHazare now has them at his feet Rahul Gandhi and he write loving letters to each other and Sushma Swaraj conceded in the Lok Sabha during the Lokpal debate that the credit for it should go to him My own opinion of the Bill has been expressed too often in this column to need reiterationbut fellow pundits in the media have praised it fulsomely and cannot contain their joy at the advent of the Aam Aadmi Party So will someone please explain to me what it is about Modi that makes so many people believe that he could wreck India As someone who believes that democracy is Indias greatest achievement since it became an independent nationI really am curious to know why there are so many people who believe that Modi has the power to so damage the institutions of democracy For myself I have to say that despite the distortions that have entered the politylike dynastic succession and political parties being turned into family heirloomsI have faith that the roots of democracy have grown so deep that anyone trying to tear them out will be felled in the process It is ironic that the only people who appear not to have faith in Indian democracy are the English-speaking Indians foreign correspondents wine and dine with in Delhis drawing rooms Follow Tavleen Singh on Twitter @

of 60 days to grant its approval to the draft Development Plan 2014-2034 and the report of the planning committee Moved by the Shiv Sena the proposal found unanimous support from all parties at Friday’s meeting including the BJP The request for the extension is likely to be sent for the state government’s approval on Saturday The report of the planning committee which was submitted to the former mayor Snehal Ambekar on March 6 was tabled at the general body meeting on Friday Pitching an amendment to the proposal the new standing committee chairperson and Sena corporator Ramesh Korgaonkar said: “March 20 was set as the deadline for the general body to give its approval to the DP and we need more time to study it We should thus seek for an extension of 60 days” Congress group leader Ravi Raja however protested against the last minute circulation of the planning committee report on suggestions for and objections to the DP and said that a period of 60 days was insufficient “Even though the proposal on the DP report was marked as ‘urgent business’ the circulation of the document was done on Friday after midnight The corporators should have at least 24 hours to study any document The new corporators need some time to understand such a complicated plan and we should ask for an extension of 90 days” he said In agreement with Korgaonkar’s proposal BJP group leader Manoj Kotak said: “The DP is an important document which will be the city’s plan for the next 20 years A large number of corporators are newcomers and need time to study it well We should take an extension of two months and if needed then we can ask for more time” he said Apart from agreeing to the proposal of asking for an extension Samajwadi Party group leader Rais Shaikh suggested that presentations

behind and champions Barcelona two adrift of the leaders Atletico are fourth trailing Barca by six points and in danger of missing out on direct qualification for the Champions League “We are six points behind third spot after an inconsistent first half of the season” Simeone told reporters on Monday “Sevilla have a big advantage for getting into the Champions League” A fourth-placed finish would mean a Champions League qualifying tie for Atletico but even that is not certain as Real Sociedad are level with them on 35 points and Villarreal are four points back in sixth Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Athletic Bilbao capped the worst first half of the campaign for an Atletico side coached by Simeone who took over on 2011 and Sevilla are the big difference this season Atletico led the standings early in the campaign but a 1-0 defeat at Sevilla in October began a poor run which brought Simeone’s team seven points out of a possible 21 The 2014 Spanish champions hit back with three consecutive league wins to start 2017 before Sunday’s draw but Simeone is being realistic “We are growing” Simeone said “Each game we get closer to the consistency we want in our play so that results follow”

airport to unshackle the woes of civil aviation The year 2015 again did not bring much hope for the citizens of Pune as the dream to see a dedicated civil airport for Pune remained only on paper Location confusion The plan to develop a new airport at Chakan or Khed or any other remains on paper While the guardian minister for Pune District Girish Bapat and Union Minister for Road Transport and Shipping Nitin Gadkari have claimed that they are taking ‘active interest’ in the project there’s no concrete development so far While the civil aviation department is positive about the project the hurdle is finding a suitable land allotment Expansion of Lohegaon airport The only ‘goodnews’ that came in 2015 was the announcement by the defence ministry approving the use of additional 15 acres at Lohegaon Airport for the expansion of facilities Airport officials say that although it would take four-five months for physical work to commence the details of handing over the land from defence land to AAI are being worked out “The handing over of land has started” says Ajay Kumar director Lohegaon Airport Need for new airport Aviation expert and former Air India official Dhairyasheel Vandekar says the phenomenal passenger and cargo growth needs to be complemented with world-class facilities and newer domestic and international connections Delay in making such facilities may prove a severe setback to the trade and commerce adds Vandekar Issues with existing airport Vandekar says that there are several pending demands to be taken up which include setting up of a full-fledged cargo complex with custom facilities for import-export of international cargo a cold storage for perishable cargo like flowers vegetables fruits vaccines and medicines and equipping the medical cell in the airport with critical care facility Without own airport how is it smart city Alok Shetty a businessman from Model Colony says “The situation is such that since it’s primarily a defence airport there are a number of limitations The fact that the flights are not able to take off and land most part of the day is quite an unsmart thing to have” Political will can get city a new airport all these years the city did not get an independent airport There is a lack of political will The government seems to fail to comprehend the urgency to have an independent airport For Pune to even qualify as a ‘smart city’ what needs to be done in 2016 is an independent airport Tremendous limitations due to Air Force operations The existing airport has tremendous limitations due to the Air Force operations We want at least 100 landings and 100 take offs from the airport Presently we can only facilitate 45 landings and 45 take-offs Even going to or coming from Mumbai is such a big hassle The traffic potential between the two cities is such that we can have a shuttle service operating every hour Because of this handicap we lose out connecting to many international destinations By 2016 we will manage to get 15 acres of land from the defence authorities and we are hoping that this will bring in some relief However this will only serve the purpose for two to three years Developing international cargo capacity At present international cargo traffic is not taking place at all Due to this the industry is suffering Presently there are three services to international destinations however the belly of the aircraft leave and land empty This is because the airport doesn’t have infrastructure for cargo operations This is a major loss to the airline industry Both Airport Director and MCCIA are making efforts to get the facility at the existing airport in 2016 Independent airport Whatever land is being made available by defence now and four aprons that will be developed there will not be enough for us The need is much more The area too is so congested that it takes about 20 minutes to half an hour to exit the airport after landing The airport space is less and road is narrow while the traffic is ever increasing The only solution to these problems is to get an independent airport I feel so frustrated that a city which is contributing so much to the GDP is not getting the basic necessity No city in the world can call itself a smart city if it doesn’t have enough infrastructure to meet the connectivity needs Land acquisition for new airport There’s a lack of political will to get the work on an independent airport done Every time we ask them they say people are against the land acquisition or come up with another reason This is unbelievable If you are ready to pay them good compensation and address the fears it can happen quickly For example some years ago Chandigarh decided to get an aiport They acquired the land in a week and about two months prior it was opened for public The land in Punjab is more expensive in comparison to Maharashtra In the past we have lost major industrial units to Hyderabad and Bangalore and we definitely need better air connectivity 2016 will be a year of great success if we get closer to getting an independent airport SK Jain is the former president of Mahratta Chamber of Commerce Industries and
