Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis (PTI Photo) Top News Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis emerged as the face of BJP during its campaign for civic elections across Maharashtra In an interview with Indian Express he speaks on the tie-up with Shiv Sena possibility of any post-poll alliance and the chances of his party in Mumbai and other civic bodies going to polls Tuesday Excerpts Why did Mumbai polls assume a larger-than-life significance this time triggering debates from the city to Delhi Mumbai is the economic capital which surely holds appeal across sections and transcends boundaries beyond Maharashtra For the first time BJP emerged as a credible alternative to the Shiv Sena where we pitched our campaign on development plank In the absence of an emotive plank and the high anti-incumbency factor Shiv Sena tactically kept its attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and targeted me personally trying to take the centre stage Sena’s aggression was an outcome of (its) shaky ground and growing challenge from the BJP WATCH VIDEO |BMC Polls: CM Fadnavis Uddhav Thackeray With Family Cast Ballot WATCH VIDEO |BMC Elections 2017: Polling Begins Across Maharashtra MNS Chief Raj Thackeray Casts His Vote How does one justify the ugly war of words between Uddhav Thackeray and Devendra Fadnavis At the 71 rallies across the state only 11 of which was in Mumbai I never hit Uddhavji below the belt Whether it is Mumbai or Maharashtra 80 to 90 per cent of my speech is devoted to development plank and only 10 to 20 per cent to politics My politics is centred on development and not demolition My politics is not based on hatred You had often said Uddhav and your relationship was founded on love and respect for each other Where does it stand now I don’t mix my politics with personal relationships As far as my relation with Uddhavji is concerned it will remain same and cordial irrespective of politics and electoral outcome I always value every human being Is BJP working on a Sena-mukt Mumbai We are working on a corruption-free Mumbai and Maharashtra Nobody can finish any party or person It is the people who have the power to elect or retire a party or an

be difficult ahead to run the coalition government (in the state) My government is stable and will last full five years’ term The BJP-Shiv Sena coalition is a public mandate which they also know cannot be dishonoured Shiv Sena’s edge is Mumbai a fact that Congress-NCP had always reconciled in the past How do you view this Yes their expectations were BJP should leave Mumbai to Sena In 2014 assembly elections BJP got 15 seats and Sena 14 seats in Mumbai Yet trying to accommodate their concern I agreed to a pre-poll formula of 122 seats for Sena and 105 for BJP But my condition was transparency This was not acceptable to Sena How could I compromise on rampant corruption in BMC I have been receiving complains daily on their poor and corrupt functioning in the BMC Does it not stir your conscious when public money worth Rs 8000 crore goes down the drain in name of nullah safai or Rs 2500-crore corruption on roads or crores pocketed in the name of garbage cleaning at dumping grounds Click here for LIVE updates on PMC polls In case of a fractured mandate will BJP and Sena go for post-poll alliance I am confident of BJP getting close to majority on its own Are you open on post-poll alliance or not The condition of transparency will remain non-negotiable in a post-poll alliance too The BJP will not hanker for any position of power or make post a prestige However transparency will be our topmost priority to make BMC corruption-free It is my promise to the people of Mumbai ‘Trust my word’ was your campaign catchline Why should Mumbaikars believe you I have delivered results in development It is not a mere poll promise but my pledge to the Mumbaikars Transformation of Mumbai is now a reality and process has begun with my government bringing mega investments worth Rs 106 crore Mumbai belongs to Mumbaikars Your critics accuse you of being an outsider (in Mumbai) from Vidarbha On one hand they talk about Samyukta (United) Maharashtra and on the other hand make such regional discrimination against individuals (NCP chief) Sharad Pawar says you don’t even know Mumbai and Maharashtra By the time I am of his age I will know But whatever little I understand it is reflected in my work and commitment to the poor people I know the pulse of the people I know how to serve the people What are the challenges as you fight three rivals — Sena NCP and Congress — in zilla parishad and municipal corporation polls I have campaigned in all 25 zilla parishads and ten municipal corporations and can state with absolute certainty that lotus will be in full bloom The BJP’s expansion in every taluka which was Congress-NCP bastion in Western Maharashtra will give the organisation a quantum jump Whether it is Pune Pimpri-Chinchwad Solapur BJP will make huge gains to establish its leadership in zilla parishad and civic polls In true sense the BJP’s pan-Indian image will get boost You have emerged as the sole face of BJP in Maharashtra on the lines of Modi at the Centre I don’t subscribe to this theory I personally believe nobody is above the party The organisation is the backbone of any government or election and karyakarta its soul Yes I have emerged as the face because I happen to be the chief minister of Maharashtra It was my party’s decision to project me to counter the way Shiv Sena designed its personality-oriented campaign led by Uddhav Thackeray But let me assure that no matter what post and position I hold at the heart I always remain a BJP karyakarta To me the title of BJP karyakarta is most sacrosanct Do you justify tickets to criminals in the name of elective merit If you look at the list of candidates Shiv Sena tops with maximum tickets to criminals The BJP has not given tickets to any hardcore criminal I firmly feel there should be total decriminalisation of politics And people should also ensure those with criminal backgrounds are not elected In BJP there was unrest because of tickets to outsiders Almost 89 to 92 per cent candidates are from the BJP Only 8 to 11 per cent were from outside selected on electoral merit Now even when one BJP candidate gets tickets there are six aspirants who are unhappy The discontent is more when it is an outsider But that is shortlived Whether it is Shiv Sena Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana or RPI they all accuse BJP of using the allies and dumping them To the contrary we have given our allies more space and share in power both at the Centre and in the state Sadabhau Khot of SSS is a minister in my government Ramdas Athawale is a minister in the Union government Now in zilla parishad SSS wanted to contest alone as did Sena Each party likes to have its own identity It is fine Will demonetisation cast its shadow on polls Across rural and urban areas there is growing hunger for development among the people where our development plank has struck a positive chord The people had to face some hardships due to demonetisation for a few months But Narendra Modiji

dollars They conclude that humanitarian assistance should be done differently The anti-foreign aid establishment is using the report to argue that aid doesnt work and should be cut across the board The very fact that $21 billion has been donated to help the victims of the famine is a testament to human generosity But that fact of our generosity also explains why I am so frustrated by the increasing opposition in many rich countries to foreign aid According to public opinion researchmany people believe aid is either stolen by corrupt leaders or wasted on ineffective programmes Naturallyno one is eager to make investments theyre convinced wont pay off There is also the argument that aid doesnt work even when it gets to its intended recipients This claim is not convincing either In the past 50 yearsthe number of children who die every year has gone down from 20 million to fewer than 8 million Meanwhilethe proportion of people living in extreme poverty has declined by more than half These massive improvements are due in large part to aid-funded programmes to buy vaccines and boost farmers productivity I am confident that we can get the price of AIDS drugs down to $300 per person per year in the very near future That will mean that every $300 a country gives to the Global Fund to Fight AIDSTB and malaria represents a person who will stay alive for another year Every $300 thats not forthcoming represents a human being who will almost certainly die That is a stark but realistic way to think about the choices were making when we debate aid budgets Many of those suffering in the Horn of Africa were going hungry before there was a recognised emergency in the region In factmore than 1 billion people in the world dont have enough food to eat One of the most powerful solutions to this problem is to help poor farmers get more out of their tiny plots In parts of South Asia and sub-Saharan Africafarmers plant low-yielding seedsclimate change is starting to shrink their harvestsand diseases are invading their fields New seeds and other tools can help farmers cope For examplemy foundation helped fund the development of a variety of rice that can survive flooding and will feed an extra 30 million people every year in Bangladesh and India The question ishow do we continue to do the research needed to develop these new tools Poor countries are investing more in their own agricultural sectorsbut they dont have the resources to lead on R&D Aid is a key piece of the puzzleand right now the entire research budget of the group responsible for agricultural science for the poorest is just $300 million per year Its a shame to see such a high-leverage opportunity generate such ambivalence I am proud to live in a world where a strangers suffering matters Yet foreign aidthe best way to address that sufferinghas a growing legion of critics That is a contradiction we must remedyand the best way to do it is to tell the truth about aid

medicaleducation’s additional director the selection committee’s secretary and the Medical Council of India seeking their stands on the plea by 5 July The petitioners submitted that the allocation of seats in medical colleges on the basis of the board of education has been frowned upon and quashed by the Supreme Court The apex court has clearly stated that when theadmission is based on entrance examination NEET it should make no difference whether the qualifying examination is conducted by the state board or Central Board of Secondary Education because no discrimination can be made between the schools affiliated to both the boards they submitted The petitioners further stated that once a common merit list is prepared for the purpose of grant of admission to MBBS and BDS courses based on NEET results the only permissible reservation is in favour of students who have studied in schools situated within Tamil Nadu Therefore it is impermissible for distribution of seats on the basis of the school board and therefore such segregation of seats would amount to discrimination among students he added Ahmedabad:Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani on Tuesday accused PAAS leader Hardik
