Kunduz officials later said they were investigating claims that local civilians also were killed in the fighting, "In a sense, Here’s what he says (read the full interview here): “The mistake we made was to assume that the people will celebrate our decision to quit on principle..There was a communication gap and that gap was filled by BJP and Congress who told people that we ran away from responsibility” Arvind Kejriwal Reuters This line we-did-the-right-thing-but-didn’t-communicate-well is used by all political parties when they screw up Most recently the Congress has been doing it Several UPA ministers have blamed Manmohan Singh’s failure to communicate for the Congress impending defeat in the next elections (Read here and here) What politicians really mean when they talk of a “communication gap” is this: the people are too dumb to understand our holy intentions Kejriwal indirectly says as much: “We thought that people would understand our reasons on their own But it did not happen” Now he has to explain it to those dimwits who want to vote for Modi While it will always be true that better communication with the people is useful the assumption that people are not clever enough to understand what political parties stand for is silly Did India Shining fail in 2004 because the BJP failed to communicate Is Congress slipping this time just because it did not speak about the good things it has done – when scams corruption and price rise are there for everyone to see and experience Communication does not always need erudite explanation and language Your actions are communication too Coming back to Kejriwal the fact is not that people didn’t understand his decision but they understood it only too well Everyone understood that he was in a hurry to resign – and just needed an excuse Even before he resigned over his failure to table the Jan Lokpal Bill he was claiming as far back as in January (watch this NDTV interview) that Congress would regret supporting him as he planned to go after Sheila Dikshit and Congress scams He was hinting that he would like the Congress to withdraw support so that he could go out a martyr – but that didn’t happen His ministers were in a rush too to show they could deliver something before they resigned Hence the pursuit of vigilante justice against African women in midnight raids by Law Minister Somnath Bharati The truth is Kejriwal was trapped first by his own supporters who asked him to take up the job through a referendum and later by the need to govern when his instincts wanted to play anti-establishment protester This is what led to his infamous dharna which saw his stock fall and he felt compelled to exit quickly to avoid further conflicts between image and responsibility The honest thing for him to do was to resign but to say he was doing to in order to get a better mandate He lost support because he claimed he was forced to resign – which was manifestly not the case It was not a failure to communicate but his inability to hide the apparent truth that cost him his halo In fact the real reason why voters felt let down may have had nothing to do with his resignation at all – for opinion polls done around that time showed him winning hands down What voters saw was what he did after resigning Suddenly he was on a different trip His goal was not to win the next Delhi election (that was to come to him by right) but to become a national player chasing Narendra Modi in Gujarat and Varanasi Kejriwal’s loss of traction in Delhi came from the voter’s acute sense of abandonment How much will you care for a company whose product you bought if it suddenly stints on after-sales service and abandons you The problem clearly was not what Kejriwal failed to communicate but what his actions actually did to his voters They are angry because they think he used them as a stepping stone to become a star on the national stage The second point Kejriwal makes in his interview rings truer He tells ET that two categories of people were disappointed in him – his staunch supporters (presumably the people in the jhuggis and the lower middle class) and those who wanted him only as Delhi CM with Narendra Modi as PM He rightly concludes that those who wanted Modi as PM did not take kindly to his decision to challenge the Gujarat CM – and this is apparent from the anger in the BJP camp which is more palpable than in the Congress camp which is muted Politically Kejriwal had two choices: he could have chosen to go quiet on Modi and collect the anti-incumbent vote in the Delhi election while allowing Modi to take the centre The other option was to take on the BJP and Modi and go soft on the Congress By not taking on Modi Kejriwal could have won – possibly won big – in Delhi But the Delhi victory apparently stoked his greed He probably felt if he could win Delhi so easily maybe the whole of India may be his for the asking too Again we find two Kejriwals speaking First he wants to say all parties are the same – Congress BJP and Third Front and only he is different “He (Modi) is not any different from Manmohan Singh “ Kejriwal says “The third front is not different either” But then he recoils on Modi: “Modi is more dangerous than other leaders in the electoral fray because of his history with Gujarat riots But that’s a known fact I speak more often about his development record because the supposed Modi wave is because of that I want to bust that myth” But Kejriwal is not just trying to bust Modi’s myth That needed him to stay in Gujarat but he is contesting against Modi in Varanasi – which is not needed if you want to bust his myths So why is he doing this Quite clearly Kejriwal believes that the Congress is about to implode and to take the Congress’ political space he needs to position himself against Modi He wants to contest to make a point not necessarily to win This is also why he maintains two contradictory propositions: that it does not matter how many seats AAP wins and yet that Modi and Rahul will surely be defeated by AAP in Varanasi and Amethi Some of his statements thus appear delusional When he claims he will win Varanasi has he considered how this is possible The contest involves the Congress and Samajwadi Party and Kejriwal and if they split the anti-Modi vote he can hardly hope to win Kejriwal is also betting that the BJP will “get less than 180 seats” and “Mr Modi is definitely not becoming PM” He concludes: “2014 will throw up a fractured mandate and we will have re-elections in a year” It suits Kejriwal to have another election in 2015 This is not acute analysis but wishful thinking masquerading as electoral wisdom Kejriwal’s interview suggests that he is coming to down to earth but brief visits to Planet Earth are not enough He needs to truly introspect (Read The Economic Times interview here) WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s administration on Tuesday delayed implementing his unilateral steps to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation after a judge blocked the actions at the urging of 26 states accusing Obama of exceeding his powers In a setback to the president US District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville a city along the Texas border with Mexico issued a temporary court order on Monday stopping Obama’s executive actions that bypassed a gridlocked Congress Hanen’s action left in disarray US policy toward the roughly 11 million people in the country illegally Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the administration will comply with the judge’s order and will delay accepting applications from some of the illegal immigrants for deportation relief and work permits that had been set to begin on Wednesday The White House said the Justice Department will appeal Hanen’s preliminary injunction to the majority conservative 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans Hanen has previously issued other opinions critical of the Obama administration’s enforcement of immigration laws Hanen’s preliminary injunction is not a ruling on the merits of the lawsuit filed by 26 states led by Republican bastions such as Texas In a statement Johnson said that "we fully expect to ultimately prevail in the courts" "The Department of Justice legal scholars immigration experts and even other courts have said that our actions are well within our legal authority" Johnson said The judge issued his opinion amid a fight in the Republican-led US Congress over legislation passed by the House of Representatives to allow funding for the Department of Homeland Security only if Obama’s immigration actions were nullified The department is charged with securing US borders airports and coastal waters Neither Republicans nor Democrats showed signs of backing down especially with the court order being a preliminary one The judge hemmed in Obama’s exertion of executive power on Nov 20 that has drawn the ire of Republican elected officials who say he exceeded his constitutional authority "President Obama abdicated his responsibility to uphold the United States Constitution when he attempted to circumvent the laws passed by Congress via executive fiat and Judge Hanen’s decision rightly stops the president’s overreach in its tracks" said Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott DEPORTATION RELIEF Obama’s executive orders would let up to 47 million illegal immigrants stay without threat of deportation It was aimed mainly at helping 44 million people whose children are US citizens or legal permanent residents About 270000 people would be able to stay under the expansion of a 2012 program that offered deportation relief to people brought illegally to the United States as children allowing them work That expansion had been set to begin on Wednesday Immigration lawyers said many applicants for deportation relief under Obama’s order had already filed paperwork and the required $465 fee ahead of the beginning of the first stage of the executive action They now must decide whether to withdraw their applications and be refunded or continue in hopes the injunction is overturned Obama’s administration billed his moves as the biggest immigration policy shift since 1986 changes passed under President Ronald Reagan Immigration policy is sure to become an important topic in the 2016 presidential campaign Most of the illegal immigrants in the United States come from Mexico and other Latin American countries Mexico’s Foreign Ministry lamented Hanen’s order saying Obama’s moves provided "a just migration solution for millions of families and could reinforce the significant contributions of Mexican migrants to the American economy and society" Guatemala’s foreign ministry said it was "deeply saddened" by the judge’s action The judge wrote that the administration had not complied with procedures needed for putting into effect Obama’s immigration moves which he made after House Republicans blocked bipartisan immigration legislation passed by the Senate in 2013 In his opinion Hanen wrote that "the states have clearly proven a likelihood of success on the merits" of the case Hanen wrote it was "disingenuous" for the administration to maintain Obama’s actions merely "supplements and amends" current policy "It represents a massive change in immigration practice and will have a significant effect on not only illegally present immigrants but also the nation’s entire immigration scheme and the states who must bear the lion’s share of its consequences" Hanen wrote Republicans argue that Obama often has overstepped his presidential authority in areas also including US-Cuba policy and changes in his signature healthcare law In aiming to thwart Obama’s moves on immigration they risk further alienating Hispanic voters and being accused of interfering with counterterrorism efforts by holding up money for homeland security Republicans say there will be no interruption in the homeland security agency’s critical protective missions (Additional reporting by David Lawder Julia Edwards Susan Heavey in Washington Mica Rosenberg in New York and Sofia Menchú in Guatemala City;
