The chief minister and his ministerial colleagues have ruled out a revocation of Nagpals suspensionsaying it was perfectly justified Why has the government taken such a tough stand in spite of all-round criticism From the way the events have been reported in a large section of the mediait would appear that Nagpals suspension is linked to a crackdown she had ordered on illegal sand mining on the riverbeds of the Yamuna and the Hindonwhich was carried on by politically influential people It has been argued that the governments explanationoffered by none less than the chief ministerthat Nagpal was suspended for demolition of a mosque wall in Kadalpur village was just an excuse The argument is far-fetched Forif the government was really upset over Nagpals crackdown on the mining mafia which she started months ago it could have simply transferred her out and posted a pliant officer in her place Where was the need to single her out for punitive action and create a controversy Thereforethe official explanationthat Nagpal was suspended for her lack of foresight in the demolition of the mosque wallis plausible Thatin the processthe government action took the pressure off the mining mafia is a different matter It is also politically understandableif one remembers that the cornerstone of SP president Mulayam Singh Yadavs politics has been forging and sustaining a Muslim-Yadav combine The only exception in Mulayams political career was the short digression when he joined hands with former BJP chief minister Kalyan Singhand paid the price in the 2009 Lok Sabha electionswith Muslims ditching him to support the Congress In recent monthswith another Lok Sabha election drawing closerMulayam and his party have shown an anxiousness to cosy up to Muslim clerics of all shadesfrom the shahi imam of Delhis Jama Masjid to Barelvi cleric Tauqeer Raza Khan Sowhen local SP men blamed the SDM for the demolition of the wall of a mosquethat too in the month of Ramadanthe SP government reacted the only way it could: by suspending the SDM The wall may have been built on gram sabha land It may have been built without government permission For Mulayam and the SP governmenthoweverthese were secondary issues UPs Muslim ministers like Ahmed Hasan were quick to equate the action against Nagpal with Mulayam standing by Muslims during the Babri Masjid demolition After posing as the saviour of Muslimscan the government now make a climb-down without suffering a loss of face SP leaders are hitting out at the critics The media has been accused of glorifying an irresponsible officer Nagpal herself has been called names UPs bureaucracy has virtually been accused of ungratefulness In factthe government seems to have been particularly hurt by the IAS Associations action in sending a delegation to the chief secretary that complained that Nagpals suspension was unfair The association alleged that there was no official report from the district administration of any communal tension in the area after the demolition of the mosque wall Akhilesh pointed out that during the five years that Mayawati was chief ministerthe same IAS Association had dared not hold its annual meetingsthat the non-IAS official Shashank Shekhar Singh presided over the administration as cabinet secretaryand that officers had to remove their shoes when they went to meet the chief minister But the association had now spoken out against the very government that undid some of Mayawatis capricious policies and gave back the bureaucracys dignity and respect Neverthelessthere are elements within the government who would like to de-escalate They realise that the tasteless personal remarks against Nagpaland the attacks on the media and the bureaucracyare counterproductive There is a view that the matter should be closed by revoking Nagpals suspension after she submits her reply to the chargesheet [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News

historic event The entire debate has been conducted in a civilised manner There has been little intimidation or violence except for trolls on Twitter and rotten eggs thrown occasionally The United Kingdom is not a federation nor is it strictly a nation-state It is a kingdom united under a single crown Wales was conquered by the English in the 13th Century When Elizabeth the First died leaving no heirs James the King of the Scots was invited to take over the throne of England In 1707 a union was negotiated between Scotland and England By then Ireland had also been conquered so the United Kingdom of England and Wales Scotland and Ireland was born It remained one of the most centralised polities until the late 20th Century But Scotland had a special status It had its own law and courts its education system and its Church which did not owe allegiance to the Anglican Church The Scots became a vital part of the Empire and integrated in the Union while keeping their identity distinct It was the advent of Margaret Thatcher which caused the first rupture Her party failed to win a single of the 60-odd seats in Scotland in 1987 To this was added the piloting of the poll tax (a community charge) in Scotland before its introduction in England The poll tax was Mrs Thatcher’s nemesis It brought her down but it also gave an impetus to the Scots to ask why should they be governed by a
