Asian champions Australia a comfortable victory The Socceroos aiming for a fourth straight appearance at the finals in Russia in 2018 always looked the stronger side but it was not until just before the hour mark that midfielder Massimo Luongo broke the deadlock at the Perth Oval There were signs that the breakthrough was coming when Aaron Mooy hit the crossbar from the edge of the area and Juric almost immediately contrived to miss an open goal from close range The Socceroos did not spurn a third chance in three minutes however and Luongo smashed the ball into the roof of the net after Juric had beaten his defender and drilled the ball across the face of the goal Juric made further amends for his miss after 64 minutes when Mark Milligan flicked on a Mooy corner and the Luzern striker poked the ball into the net from three metres “We put in a good performance tonight there could have been a few more on our side but unfortunately they didn’t go in” said Juric who added he had been caught “off guard” by the chance he spurned “I’m glad I got on the scoresheet tonight with a goal and an assist but more importantly we got three points” The Socceroos favourites along with Japan to book the two automatic qualifying spots from Group B dominated the rest of the match but were unable to add to their goal tally Iraq who have had just one finals campaign back in 1986 were always a threat on the break and had what looked like a legitimate penalty claim in the first half when Brad Smith pulled back the lively Ahmed Yaseen Australia had the best chances before the break and Mathew

Regulation of Street Vending) Bill 2012 But now that the rights and duties of street vendors have been signed into law by Parliament some 10 million of the most industrious workers of the country have gained formal recognition The insistence on duties as well as rights is enlightened Not only does it define vending as a legitimate means of earning a living in line with an earlier Supreme Court ruling but the conditional contractual nature of the law situates street vendors hitherto regarded as unorganised workers in the mesh of formal urban planning Apart from regulating the sector with the involvement of its members and protecting vendors from arbitrary or rapacious action by the state the law has raised a couple of interesting issues which could alter the spirit of town planning First it acknowledges that vendors should be placed in “existing natural markets” Besides it stipulates that locations should be chosen that offer “convenience” and “cost-effective distribution” That’s progress in a country where planners have generally believed that neighbourhoods should be reorganised into residential and commercial regions with an aseptic barrier in between The distinction between these two forms of usage is artificial and has interfered with the organic growth of cities Vendors have been invested with a sense of ownership since they will have to pay fees be responsible

The Catalan club played behind closed doors at the Nou Camp on Sunday beating Las Palmas 3-0 in La Liga as a protest against Spain using force to prevent voters taking part in a banned referendum to decide the region’s fate More than 840 people needed medical attention after riot police clashed with some of those attempting to participate in the controversial vote on secession which the Spanish government had ruled illegal “In the case of independence the club and the members would have to decide in which league we would play” Bartomeu told reporters after a board meeting “We are going through difficult and complicated moments and with respect to what could happen in the future we will take it on with calm and wisdom” Catalan sports minister Gerard Figueras last week said Barcelona may be able to play in another country should the region achieve independence from Spain “In the case of independence Catalan teams in La Liga – Barcelona Espanyol and Girona – will have to decide where they want to play: in the Spanish league or a neighbouring country like Italy France or the (English) Premier League” he said VICE-PRESIDENT RESIGNS Bartomeu also said he had accepted the

Carles Vilarrubi and Barca Innovation Hub chief Jordi Mones” he said “We thank both of them for their dedication during all their years of service to the club” Bartomeu said choosing to play without fans was one of the hardest decisions he has had to make as the club’s president since taking over from Sandro Rosell in January 2014 “We perfectly understand that many of our members and fans would have preferred the option of calling off the match” said Bartomeu “That is why I must say that this was one of the most difficult decisions that I have ever had to make as Barca president “We very

punishment under section 309 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) As of now a person who attempts to commit suicide is charged under section 309 of IPC as it is considered to be an offence Replying to a debate on the legislation Health Minister JP Nadda termed it as "humane and progressive" and said its focus was to provide better support and facilities to the people suffering from various kinds of mental illnesses File Image of Union Health Minister JP Nadda PIB "This is a historic and progressive bill It has been a long standing effort It is patient-centric and focuses on how more facilities and support could be provided to the patients" Nadda said He said around 6-7 percent of the country’s population suffered from some kind of mental illnesses while 1-2 percent suffer from acute mental disease He also admitted that there was shortage of medical staff dealing with mental health in the country and the government is trying hard to have more such specialists Various stakeholders including academia experts and political establishment were consulted while formulating the bill Nadda said adding "the bill focuses on community based treatment Special provisions for women and health have also been provided for in the bill" Members across the political spectrum however sought urgent steps to address the lack of infrastructure and shortage of psychiatrists in the country The Bill also provides for protection and promotion of rights of persons with mental illness during the delivery of health care in institutions and in the community The bill was passed unanimously through voice vote There were 134 official amendments to the bill which took almost an hour to be passed clause by clause A senior Health Ministry official told PTI"Suicide has been treated as a form of severe stress which will not be punishable under 309 of IPC "Earlier it used to be considered as offence Now a humanistic approach has been taken in this matter It is a very reformative It is a significant progression from regulated healthcare to rights based mental health approach" the official said With Rajya Sabha passing the bill it will now be introduced in the Lok Sabha M V Rajeev Gowda of the Congress said that there are many many good things in this bill and one of the most important ones is the fact that it decriminalizes suicides "When a person attempts to take his or her own life that person is crying for help that person is not someone who should be treated as a criminal and thrown behind bars We need to reach out and find a way to overcome the problems that have caused that kind of action" he said Among the various objectives the bill provides for ensuring healthcare treatment and rehabilitation of persons with mental illness "in a manner that does not intrude on their rights and dignity" It also allows adults to make an advance directive on how they wish to be treated in case they suffer from mental illness in future A person can also chose a nominative representative who would take care of him or her Elaborating further Nadda said that the bill also provides that electric treatment will be not be given to children However it can only be administered only if medically required He said that if it has to be administered to adults it has be given with muscle relaxant and anesthesia under the bill The bill also has the provision that women should not be separated from children and it can only be done only if medical condition requires It also provides for establishment of Central and State Mental Health Authority The bill also defines mental illness as well as its treatment Under the bill psycho-surgery will only be allowed if the district medical board approves it Earlier Congress member T Subbirami Reddy raised a point of order saying the bill had as many as 134 amendments and sought to know if a new bill could be drafted He was supported by his party colleague Jairam Ramesh with even Deputy Chairman P J Kurien

funeral on Sunday vowing to intensify their protests against a bid by the president of the central African nation to seek a third consecutive term Opposition leaders also said they were suspending talks with the government of President Pierre Nkurunziza after Zedi Feruzi the leader of the Union for Peace and Development (UPD) a small opposition party was gunned down in the capital Burundi Agencies "Those who killed Feruzi Zedi will pay sooner or later" one sign held by mourners read The killing came a day after a grenade attack on a busy market killed three people and injured around 40 others The attacks have dramatically worsened tensions in the crisis-hit country where a heavy-handed crackdown on the anti-government demonstrations has already left around 30 dead since late April The crisis also sparked a failed coup against President Nkurunziza last week and there are fears Burundi which only emerged from a 13-year civil war in 2006 could be plunged back into conflict Condemning the apparent assassination as "an awful act" activists said in a statement they were "suspending participation in dialogue with the government" that had been supported by the United Nations and African Union They also said the murder could have been part of an alleged "plan to physically eliminate" leaders of the campaign against Nkurunziza A journalist who witnessed the attack said the gunmen were clad in uniforms similar to those worn by the presidential guard The presidency however said it was "shocked" by the attack in which a police bodyguard was also killed and called for the perpetrators to be found and brought to justice While the streets of the capital were calm today in line with a weekend truce protesters were readying to resume the demonstrations Civil society leader Pacifique Nininahazwe called the truce "to allow the people to bury with dignity those who died for democracy" but warned the "protests will resume on Monday with even more force" AFP New Delhi:India

"Currently we are bound by the unbreakable bond" he said adding when the two countries come together people will travel to and fro in large numbers Modi said he has personal connection with China as he hails from village in Gujarat’s Vadnagar which the famous Chinese traveller Hiuen Tsang had visited "These things are not just history but reflect a special bond" he added Modi said he had been to China earlier and his experience had been very good "I had read a lot of books about China but my experience was unique" The Prime Minister said while President Xi Jinping visited India last year he will be visiting China this year PTI Bhubaneswar: For 14 years large sections of the local media were more than happy to eat out of Naveen Patnaik’s hands They put up with the BJD supremo’s utter disdain for them – reflected in the fact that he has not addressed a single press conference or given a single interview to anybody from what he believes is the ‘mofussil’ press – without so much as a whimper It was grateful for every byte read out from a prepared text that ‘The Supreme Leader’ deigned to give after making the TV crews wait for hours It swallowed the humiliation when he even refused entertain a single question from them Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik PTI But suddenly the media appears to have found its voice again The front pages of Odia newspapers these days are full of stories scathingly critical of the government the ruling party and its leading lights something that was unthinkable even six months ago Television reporters have unshackled themselves and are back to asking the tough questions of ministers and ruling party politicians Things are much worse for the ruling party on the social media with people having whale of a time lambasting ridiculing and caricaturing the leading lights of the party The sharpest wittiest and most vicious attacks are of course reserved for the Supreme Leader What has changed so drastically over the last four months since Naveen came back to power with a thumping majority Naveen has never been a voluble man But even by his own reticent standards he has gone surprisingly quiet these last few weeks His public appearances have been few and far between On the few occasions he has ventured out his minders have made sure television cameras stay out of harm’s way and don’t get anywhere close to him Of late official announcements by the Chief Minister have been made by way of press releases from his office rather than in the form of personal appearances before the TV cameras While Naveen the Chief Minister has at least made an occasional public appearance and delivered a rare statement Naveen the BJD president has been conspicuous by his absence and deafening in his silence And this at a time when so much is happening in the party that would in normal circumstances demand his attention The de facto Number 2 in the party Rajya Sabha MP Kalpataru Das has suddenly become persona non grata in the wake of damaging revelations about cynical acquisition of property by him and his family Leader after senior leader is being hauled over the coals for their alleged involvement in some scam or the other The CBI is zeroing in on some powerful leaders in the party including ministers in the chit fund scam But the supremo has not uttered a word on any of it Like ‘Maunmohan’ Singh he has decided that silence is golden With the leader himself shying away from public glare the fear of the television cameras has spread like a contagion down the line On Monday Revenue Minister Bijayshree Routray lost his cool and assaulted a reporter when persistent TV crews badgered him for a byte on a huge piece of land in Bhubaneswar he has acquired in gross violation of rules The day after former government chief whip Pravat Tripathy turned up at the CBI office in the capital city for interrogation in connection with his role in the chit fund scam with two dozen or so supporters who looked and behaved more like bouncers in a late night bar to ensure that the booms did not get close to their leader But the dogged TV crews tailed him as he came out after a marathon six-hour long grilling and hastily made his way to his car He fell down but still did not oblige them with a byte It is this sudden aggression and doggedness of the local media more than anything else that has unnerved the ruling party – and may be its leader too Much of Naveen’s current problems of course are the result of his own reticence and lack of articulation He has always allowed others in the party and the government to do the talking on his behalf But with battle hardened party veterans like Damodar Rout Prafulla Ghadai and Kalindi Ghadai sidelined and the new crop of spokespersons (there is a team of 10 in place now) messing up things every now and then Naveen has been getting a lot of bad press of late He has tried out everything from doling out government houses to journalists to patronising an elite press club mostly comprising owners/editors but to no avail Unfortunately for the Naveen the disenchantment with him is not restricted to the media alone Suddenly the bureaucracy too has become wary of sticking its neck out for him Exasperated with his whimsical decision making and haughty manners top bureaucrats have made a beeline for the Centre Five including former chief secretary Jugal Kishore Mohapatra have already left while twice as many are anxiously waiting for their turn to move out Curiously the man who is widely believed to have hastened the departure of most of these senior bureaucrats the Chief Minister’s private secretary Karthikeyan Pandian has himself sought to move out according to reliable sources The grapevine has it that the man Naveen had handed over the reins of his government – and even the party – over the last two years or so has suddenly fallen foul of his boss Naveen apparently believes now that it is Pandian who has earned him an array of enemies including the media with his high handed handling of matters Without a family of his own Naveen Patnaik has always been a loner But with his most trusted lieutenants in the party and the government having either disgraced themselves or become disenchanted with their leader he has never been lonelier than he is now — Meghana Patil,Bangalore Engine of change Aproposthe editorial ‘Off the beaten

would roll out a stimulus or that Greece would actually elect the far-left Over the last few days both have happened The ECB flooded the market with a 11 trillion euro package and radical left Syriza has formed a coalition with the right-wing Greek Independents after falling just short of an absolute majority in Sunday’s general election The euro marked this potential turning point for the European Union and especially for the monetary union by falling to $111 against the US dollar its lowest in more than 11 years while global markets prepared for a period of likely volatility Although Syriza’s leader Alexis Tsipras insists Greece will retain the euro and cooperate with the EU on a “fair and mutually beneficial solution” his post-result rhetoric returned to the overwhelming populism of Syriza’s campaign He said the mandate “is undoubtedly cancelling the bailouts of austerity and destruction” adding that the “Troika… is a thing of the past” That troika is the EU ECB and IMF lenders who put Greece through big budgetary cuts and restructuring Tsipras had promised to write off half of Greece’s 240 billion euro debt and raise salaries Unsurprisingly from Frankfurt to Brussels Greeks had been warned against the “wrong result” and its new leaders cautioned against reneging on the country’s deals Greece has been hit hard by austerity given the job losses cutback in public services and pensions with unemployment at 255 per cent against an eurozone average of 115 per cent But with a final bailout of 72 billion euros hanging in the balance Syriza may find governing vastly different from campaigning Also last week’s ECB roll-out may mitigate Syriza’s impact But its triumph comes at a time when populists on the right and the left are gaining ground in states like France Italy and Spain Spain’s anti-austerity Podemos leads polls; and the anti-EU UK Independence Party is certain to make its presence felt in May’s general election From 52 per cent in 2007 public faith in the EU has dipped to a third Handled without caution Syriza could yet signal a dimming of the EU project For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten

the same way as a 100000-employee transnational company I recently asked this rhetorical question when an experienced foreign investor asked me why the Indian Constitution couldn’t be changed so that the new government in Delhi could overrule resistance from state governments It was a challenge to explain to him that India houses one-sixth of humanity Just because India is a country and Singapore and Thailand are also countries it doesn’t mean that the governance structures and economic solutions that worked in Singapore or Thailand will work in India too Putting it another way the state of Uttar Pradesh houses more people than Brazil another member of BRIC — that over-hyped acronym whose deserved descent into irrelevance ought to speed up The makers of India’s Constitution wise as they were had thought this through In the division of powers between the Centre and the state they restricted the Centre’s economic powers to mainly policymaking in areas such as foreign affairs and trade as well as those parts of the economy where national scale helps — for example currency banking railways national highways airlines and telecom The rest including the most important points at which businesses come in contact with government (for instance law and order land acquisition urban infrastructure and power distribution) was left to the states This is an important driver of the wide divergence in prosperity and growth between states Even the interface between government and individual citizens is largely at the state level — birth certificates driving licences irrigation electricity water education and healthcare are handled by the state governments But for most of our independent history this division of power did not deliver much change It is hard to isolate causality in complex matters such as these but an important reason for this was the control exercised by the Centre on the state through the political party Till the 1990s more than 60 per cent of India’s population lived in states ruled by chief ministers beholden to the political leadership in Delhi to keep their jobs What made it worse Their job security was usually linked to their loyalty and not necessarily to their performance as chief ministers That 60 per cent has dropped to 12 per cent State-level leaders and political parties which have “skin in the game” when it comes to development have emerged Further Article 356 of the Constitution which relates to president’s rule was also rampantly misused In the early years it was rarely used: just five times in the 1950s Then our idealism faded and its use rose steadily: 49 times in the 1970s The occupants of the throne in Delhi routinely dismissed state governments on a whim This too has changed in recent years — nearly half of this decade is over and we have seen just two instances of president’s rule Last total state government spending is now nearly 40 per cent more and is still growing faster than Central spending This is partly a result of higher revenues accruing from better tax administration and also because successive finance commissions have increased the states’ share of tax revenues These trends are already showing results Central schemes for rural roads job creation electrification and education among other things have always been around But the remarkable improvement in execution over the past decade and a half owes largely to the empowered state leader With a few exceptions state governments across political parties have learned from the BJP’s victory in May which was based on the electoral plank of good governance and growth and are now pressing the accelerator Last month’s elections in Maharashtra and Haryana would be among the rare few contested purely on the plank of good governance and growth The Brahmin chief minister of Maharashtra and the Punjabi chief minister of Haryana would have no doubt about their governance priorities A dramatic improvement in state-level governance likely driven by changing voter demands and enabled by technological advances like cheap computing mobile telephony and the internet is afoot This has all the signs of a structural change and holds great promise for India in the coming years The recent debate on whether regional parties can survive is somewhat unnecessary A local competitor may lack the resources and processes of a multi-national company but its local knowhow more than makes up for this Thus the correct question is: Which parties and leaders can step out of denial on the change in voter preferences and to use consulting jargon be the “fast follower” (for instance like a smartphone manufacturer profitably copying iPhone features) While the BJP led by Narendra Modi was clearly the first among mainstream parties to have caught wind of this change in voter aspiration parties and leaders that catch on — like they did with the post-Mandal changes in voter preference for caste — will survive while others fall by the wayside A more important question perhaps is: Can political parties that have a presence across states develop and empower state-level leaders so that they become agents of change in their respective states and yet remain within the party fold despite having the individual ability to pull votes Can such leaders assert themselves without falling foul of the central leadership After all there exists a delicate and fluid balance between the gains of unification and standardisation on one hand and those of decentralisation on the other Managers in companies regularly face this challenge Allow too much freedom to local management and they run amok ruining the brand in the local market or self-aggrandise at the expense of the company eventually venturing out on their own Tighten the strings too much and you handicap them which competitors take advantage of and you lose again A healthy balance between the two forces drives success As the powers of taxation of the Central and state governments get overhauled such a framework is also critical in thinking through the final debates on the goods and services tax (GST) The long-term gains of the GST seem quite obvious: among other things the abysmally low levels of service-tax collection could be corrected by letting state governments collect it As they know the territory better aided by technology they can improve compliance And yet the matter has dragged on for years highlighting the need for the powers of unification to assert themselves The writer is the India Equity Strategist

first time that the party would have fought the elections without a face as its potential CM "The central leadership will decide who CM will be in Delhi" Mukhi said However an Indian Express report this weekend noted that Bedi had been told that she would be made CM in the event of a BJP victory in Delhi by none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi during an interaction between the two Mukhi was quoted as saying in a report earlier that the state unit of the party hadn’t been consulted beforeBedi was taken into the party BJP MP Manoj Tiwari got himself into a tangle over the party’s chief ministerial candidate and backtracked after saying that the former IPS official had only joined the party and hadn’t been declared the party’s chief ministerial candidate "All I said was that Kiran Bedi hasn’t been projected as the party’s chief ministerial candidate" he said We will work with whoever the senior leadership decides as the CM designate the actor-turned-politician said The statements from leaders like Mukhi and Tiwari come even as reports state that the party’s activists and senior leadership may not be too pleased by Bedi’s sudden elevation A report had indicated that a tea party to which the former IPS official had’summoned’ BJP MPs hadn’t gone down too well given she doesn’t hold a formal position in the party just yet However it didn’t stop most of them from showing up Leadershave chosen tocomplain about Bedi so far anonymously in order to prevent any action being taken against them "She is rude and arrogant Her dictatorial tendencies may have an adverse impact on the party’s prospect It will be difficult for workers to work with her Since we work under the umbrella of the BJP we will follow instructions of our leader as obedient foot soldiers" one
