This is a peculiar argument because the present acceptance of Mukherjees candidature cutting across party linesfrom the ruling Congress and DMKwhich are neck deep in corruption and venalityto the communal-chauvinistic Shiv Senahas something very sinister about it The widest acceptance of a candidate among such anti-people forces should be strong enough reason for the CPM and the Left parties not to support that candidate Mukherjee has been a senior cabinet minister in the present and erstwhile UPA governments (2004-2012) In his earlier stints Mukherjee was instrumental in cementing the Indo-US strategic alliance In his current tenure as finance ministerhe has presided over the longest spell of double-digit food inflation in the post-Independence period… He has also been one of the worst performing finance ministers India has ever had…The argument presented in the press conference addressed by the General Secretary on June 21justifying support for Mukherjeewas wholly misleading It was said that the CPM has always supported Congress nominees as presidential candidates since 1991despite being opposed to its economic policies What was not mentioned was that never before has a sitting finance minister of a Congress government (or any Union minister for that matter) been nominated as a presidential candidate since 1991… What does the CPM gain by supporting a Congress presidential nominee in this backdrop In the absence of any explicit and coherent explanation so farone can only make two guesses If the consideration was that the strength of the CPM and the Left is numerically too weak to field its own candidatethen the natural choice should have been to abstain from the polls… While the electoral outcome would have remained unchangedthe Left as a whole could have sent a clear message: that the Left is unitedly opposed to both the Congress- and BJP-backed candidates in the present political backdrop The other argument… is that the CPM and the Left is going to gain by supporting the Congress nominee because the Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo is opposed to the former and this will help to drive a wedge between the Congress and the TMC in West Bengal to the Lefts advantage… Such argumentsbesides taking the political consciousness of the ordinary people of Bengal entirely for grantedare also reflective of naiveté and lack of common sense Repeated instances have shown that the TMC has been able to defeat the Left Front in most places even without Congress support Moreoverany effort to stitch up a formal or informal electoral alliance with the Congress against the TMC in West Bengal today will be a tactical disaster for the Left Frontbecause that will turn large sections of traditional voters away from the Left I protest against the decision by the politburo to support the candidature of Pranab Mukherjee… I consider this to be a grave error which will harm the Party and disturb Left unity The Party leadership has committed one mistake after another since 2007… The same leadership is committing yet another costly mistakerefusing to learn anything from the past… Thereforewith great pain and agonyI tender my resignation from

had already created history by becoming the highest wicket-taker in both Test cricket and in one-day cricketthis achievement is the biggest feather in his cap A total of 1328 international wickets is proof of how this spin wizard ruled the cricket world in his 18-year long career The way he scalped eight wickets of the worlds No 1 Test team in his last match proves his determination and confidence

2017 10:05 am Sandeep Kumar bettered his national record with a timing of 3 hours 55 minutes and 59 seconds Top News There was hardly any competition for Sandeep Kumar in the 50km category at the the national race walk championship on Saturday but he still managed to break the national record one which stood in his name Races in all three walk categories — women’s 20km and men’s 50 and 20 km — were held in a one kilometre loop around Vinay Marg on a pleasant morning All podium finishers in the men’s 50km which was won by Sandeep and men’s 20km qualified for the World Championships to be held in London in August Sandeep bettered his national record with a timing of 3 hours 55 minutes and 59 seconds As Sandeep calmly crossed the finish line the spectators mostly curious onlookers had to wait another six minutes to see the next man — Jitender Singh — cross the line With the qualifying mark for the World Champions being set at four hours and six minutes Jitender (4:0211) and Chandan Singh (4:0218) — the third-place finisher — also made the cut In the 20 km event KT Irfan (1:2243) Devender Singh (1:22:43) and Ganapati K (1:22:57) the top three finishers were within the World Championship qualifying mark of 1:24:00s Sandeep first re-wrote the 50km national record at the IAAF World Race Walking Cup in Taicang China in May 2014 with a timing of 3 hours 56 minutes and 22 seconds and improved it by 23 seconds on Saturday Such performances show India’s progress in the event over the last couple of years but when it comes to big-ticket events the likes of Sandeep often fall short In Rio last year among the walkers only Manish Rawat put up a creditable display finishing 13th in the 20km event Sandeep finished 34th with a timing which was almost 12 minutes slower than his personal best The rest didn’t fare any better Khushbir Kaur finished a lowly 54th in the 20km race while Sapana did not finish Ganapati and Gurmeet (both 20km) were also disqualified Sandeep’s performance has made him eligible for the London World Championships for which the qualification mark stands at 4 hours 6 minutes but before that he will most likely compete at the Asian Race Walk Championships in Nomi Japan in March The final list for walkers will be decided by the AFI selection committee If he makes the cut Sandeep will not only have to work on his timing but also on holding his nerve “It was my first Olympics and I took a lot of pressure on myself The burden of representing the country on such a big stage and not getting properly acclimatised to the conditions set me back The weather here (in Delhi) was ideal and being a national event I wasn’t under much pressure” admitted the Jat Regiment havildar Another reason for Sandeep’s big-competition jitters could be lack of exposure at international events The walking contingent has been making regular trips to Portugal for training in recent years But participation in big events is rare “The federation is working on it We understand that our athletes need to participate in more competitions” Athletics Federation of India secretary CK Valson said According to him the race walking nationals is a build-up for August’s World Championships Most of the walkers who featured in Saturday’s races were from the national camp set up by Russian coach Alexander Artsybashe Race walking is highly technical sport where athletes with “weak styles” are constantly wary of being disqualified The margin for error is minimal A walker’s front foot must be grounded when the back foot is lifted The walkers also have to ensure that the front leg is not bent when it comes in contact with the ground These subtle pointers differentiate walking from running events “Our players need to take part in more events It will not only help them improve their technique but also establish themselves as international walkers The reputed walkers are less likely to get disqualified as the judges know about them and their technique” feels coach Alexander Sandeep comes from a farming family in Mahendragarh district of Haryana He had never heard of race walking until he joined the army “There is no sport I haven’t played I took part in various sports competitions held in my district for meager prize money (He received Rs 50000 on Saturday) When I joined the army I was introduced to walking and settled for it” the father of two says Sandeep’s confidence has been boosted by Saturday’s victory “I will train twice a day even when I am on leave” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy:
