Arrogance among the party leaders who are calling the shots in the state was the talk among the common BJP workers during the state BJP executive held in Dharamsala this week. Common BJP workers rued that the leaders calling the shots were misbehaving with them. Some videos of BJP workers complaining regarding arrogance of some party leaders also went viral. Even the national president of the party, JP Nadda, warned party workers against arrogance.

Strong steps for quality edu

The Himachal Pradesh Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Commission (HPPEIRC) has taken strong steps to ensure quality in education. As a result, eight Vice-Chancellors of private universities in the state not fulfilling the prescribed criteria have resigned. However, a section of academicians are apprehensive that the move is aimed at adjusting BJP-aligned people at the top positions. The initiatives taken by the commission are welcome provided those retain the sanctity of the institution and ensures that there is no compromise when the ball is in your court, commented a retired professor.

One man’s loss is another’s gain

The abrupt twists and turns in politics often creates upheaval for the leaders. The elevation of a new face as Zila Parishad (ZP) chairman in Solan had taken many by surprise as senior leaders, who had won as BJP rebels, had failed to bag this post. His elevation, however, appears to be shortlived as the detection of stamped ballot papers of a candidate who had contested against the chairman was all set to jeopardise his electoral victory if the aggrieved candidate takes a legal recourse. The party, which was still celebrating the ZP victory achieved a fortnight ago, is now in a tizzy . Having lost out to the electorate in the ZP poll, the Congress, however, has got a lease of new life with this issue and they were exploiting it to the hilt. How true, one man’s loss is another’s gain.
