marshlands and canals encroached upon the city hardly has an outlet for flood water in case of such incessant rain Firstpost News Editors Devparna Acharya and Rohini Chatterji analyse why Chennai was inundated In February an inner voice reportedly spoke to O Panneerselvam at the J Jayalalithaa samadhi by the Marina in Chennai resulting in a revolt and political upheaval in Tamil Nadu On 21 December when the inner voice of the voters of Jayalalithaa’s constituency will speak to the OPS-led AIADMK through the EVMs it could once again result in a political crisis In the past two weeks OPS has done precious little apart from campaign for his party candidate E Madhusudanan It is important for OPS to ensure Madhusudanan’s victory in the RK Nagar constituency that goes to polls on Thursday For this patch in north Chennai is not just any other constituency It was represented by Jayalalithaa twice — in 2015 and in 2016 — and what the subtext of the victory should it happen will mean for the AIADMK is not lost on OPS It will elevate the stature of the deputy chief minister and an orchestrated chorus celebrating him as the inheritor of Jayalalithaa’s political legacy can be expected File image of O Panneerselvam (left) and E Palaniswamy (right) PTI The past four months since the merger of the OPS faction with the Edappadi Palaniswamy camp have been anything but smooth There has been much discomfort within the erstwhile OPS group over denial of political goodies Many senior leaders feel shortchanged by the coming-together as barring OPS who got the party coordinator and deputy chief minister’s post no one else was politically elevated They were made to sweat even to get the RK Nagar ticket for fellow camper Madhusudanan who was Panneerselvam’s candidate when the bypoll was to be conducted in April A victory is sure to give the OPS camp muscle and lung power to throw its weight around within the AIADMK And an assertive rival group within the ruling party won’t please EPS too much But the chief minister knows a defeat would mean even more bad news Should the AIADMK be unable to retain the seat and worse lose to Sasikala’s nephew TTV Dhinakaran or if the margin of votes between the two is insignificant it will mean the two leaves symbol achieved zilch for the party That could set the cat among the pigeons with many wondering if staying invested with EPS will fetch handsome returns in 2019 and 2021 Then there is the caste angle to the tug of war within the AIADMK as well Ever since the ascension of EPS to the top job the Gounder community has come to dominate the politics of Tamil Nadu That is not music to the ears of the Thevar community that has held sway since the time Sasikala came into Jayalalithaa’s life Both Sasikala and OPS are Thevars because of which the AIADMK was spoken of as a Thevar party Should Madhusudanan not put up a credible performance Dhinakaran could act as the rival Thevar magnet for the fence-sitters from his community The community realises that it needs a strong leader at the moment to take on EPS and his Gounder support system and the jury is out on whether OPS has the calibre to be that person The DMK’s role in the RK Nagar election is a curious one It has not run the kind of spirited campaign it was expected to choosing local Maruthu Ganesh once again to contest the polls Arithmetically speaking it would be expected to win the contest gaining both from the split in the traditional AIADMK vote between Madhusudanan and Dhinakaran and retaining its core vote base With 45000 bogus voters removed from the electoral rolls the DMK will fancy its chances But politically MK Stalin will also be able to ring the death knell for the AIADMK with Plan B: Helping Dhinakaran win the contest and watching the fun unfold A victory for Dhinakaran despite being chargesheeted in the bribery case with no party apparatus backing him and contesting on a new symbol will enhance his stature Unlike April he is also campaigning using Sasikala’s name and photograph — a sign of confidence that a lot has changed since the summer The BJP is not seen as a serious player in the contest but is the punching bag for both DMK and Dhinakaran Both point out that a vote for Madhusudanan is a vote for the BJP that is hoping to cash in on the resentment against the national party for meddling in the internal affairs of the AIADMK But given the demographic profile of RK Nagar and the emphasis on cash-for-votes it is anyone’s guess as to how much this will be a factor for the voters The by-election is the first electoral test after the demise of former chief minister Jayalalithaa and in a situation where elections to local bodies have been postponed more than once the result on Christmas Eve

Reuters) As America reduces its military burden in Afghanistan China’s deepening involvement there was marked by the launch of a new official forum in Kabul last week Called the ‘China-Pakistan-Afghanistan Strategic Dialogue’ the triangular engagement is likely to emerge as a major force shaping India’s north western frontiers The trilateral consultations were initiated by Beijing at a low-key track two level a couple of years ago Beijing has now elevated it into an official framework China’s Assistant Foreign Minister Liu Jianchao Afghanistan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil Karzai and Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry of Pakistan co-chaired the Dialogue The first round of the forum saw China announce some major commitments to promote regional cooperation Beijing is now ready to finance a 1500 MW hydro-electric power project in the Kunar province in eastern Afghanistan To be managed jointly by Pakistan and Afghanistan and the project will feed into the power grids of both countries China has signaled the intent to promote two important trans-border transport corridors—a motorway linking Kabul with Peshawar and a rail link between Quetta and Kandahar These infrastructure projects nicely complement China’s ambitious Silk Road projects in inner Asia and its massive investments in developing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor China’s audacious effort to integrate the economic spaces of Afghanistan and Pakistan follows Beijing’s recent initiative to facilitate political reconciliation between the Afghan government in Kabul and the Taliban While the Taliban has not explicitly supported the Chinese led peace process its delegations have been travelling frequently to Beijing Over the last decade the United States had tried hard on both these fronts—internal reconciliation in Afghanistan and greater cooperation between Kabul and Islamabad Sceptics will say China is unlikely to succeed where America and the West have failed despite pumping in massive military and economic resources They would suggest that China like so many great powers before—including America Russia and the British Raj—will find it near impossible to manage deep contradictions that govern strategic life across the Hindu Kush Since the late 1970s when it embarked on reform and opening up China been wary of being drawn into regional conflicts any where in the world being drawn into regional conflicts any where in the world and emphasized the principle of non-intervention China under Xi Jinping looks far more self-confident today and is prepared to take risks in the pursuit of its interests around If Deng Xiaoping cautioned China against claiming a leadership role in the world a quarter century ago Xi seems ready to take a calculated political shot at it “As the common friend and neighbor of Afghanistan and Pakistan” China said last week in Kabul that it “sincerely welcomes the positive progress” in the trilateral dialogue and “welcomes Afghanistan and Pakistan to increase mutual strategic trust as well as enhance mutually beneficial cooperation” The three sides also reaffirmed that “terrorism extremism and separatism pose a major threat to the security and stability” of the region and agreed to “deepen counter-terrorism and security cooperation” One reason why China might succeed where others have failed in Afghanistan is the apparent convergence of its interests with that of Pakistan its all-weather friend If Rawalpindi had deliberately sabotaged American plans in Afghanistan the Pakistan Army believes China might help it achieve its long standing objective of securing political primacy across the Durand Line As it comes to terms with American withdrawal Kabul is betting that Beijing offers the last and only hope of getting the Pakistan Army to be reasonable Russia which has drawn steadily closer to China in recent years and is warming up to Pakistan is likely to back Beijing’s leadership role in Afghanistan The US,” is how Patil summed up his time In all this, It looked like he had edged behind off Narine when he was on 10 but the umpire turned down the impassioned appeal.
