SP getting increasingly isolated

The Samajwadi Party is getting isolated at the national level on the issue of the suspension of IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal.

This has become clear with major political parties disapproving of the action of the Uttar Pradesh government.
Political parties which see the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav play a role after the Lok Sabha elections early next year, view the limitations of the SP and its chief. One can understand the criticism of the BSP, BJP on the suspension issue but even the Left disapproved of it.
And on Friday, the Congress joined Opposition parties in condemning the suspension of “honest” IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal by the Uttar Pradesh government. However, it did a balancing act by “disapproving “ the “arbitrary demolition” of the wall of a place of worship.
Congress spokesperson Bhakta Charan Das also sought to debunk the SP government’s claim on the issue and said that the officer seems to have been suspended due to her stand against the sand mafia and not because of the demolition. “Congress at the outset does not support the arbitrary demolition of a mosque wall. However, the suspension of the officer seems to have been carried out because of her actions. Accordingly, the Congress, while disapproving of the act of demolishing the mosque wall, does not support the suspension of the honest IAS officer,” Mr Das told reporters.
The Congress’ reaction is a clear indicator that it does not want to antagonise the SP ahead of the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
This is because the government needs the SP’s support in passage of key bills, including the food security.
According to the party insiders, the UP government should have ordered a judicial inquiry into the Durga Shakti Nagpal issue. The CM should have visited the place.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
